Thread: "Why Bernie Sanders (Still) Matters" by Seth Ackerman
[-] 0 points by grapes (5232) 38 minutes ago

I have already written off Bernie Sanders. The Demonkrapts don't know how to govern so it doesn't matter whether Bernie's there or not as an old fogie warming the seat.

You want me to delve into this issue which I had wrestled with many decades ago. Here it goes: abortion of a fetus is highfrequencytimes a murder beyond the first several weeks after the implantation of the zygote onto the uterine wall. Independent viability doesn't enter into whether a human life should be terminated. If that were so, comatose people and the ones on oxygen or ventilators should be terminated.

There's no mention at all of abortion being a right in the U.S. Constitution, for the simple reason that the Founding Fathers couldn't even imagine the medical procedure.

Murder is highfrequencytimes wrong and explicitly stated to be so in the Ten Commandments of the Holy Bible: "Thou shalt not kill." The Founding Fathers were mostly Christians so they would likely disapprove of most abortions on religious grounds. The U.S., though founded on a Christian basis is a secular state. Murder is certainly implied to be allowed in the Constitution. What's a militia good for ? Murders. Is a U.S. militia always non-murderous ? No. Besides our murderous armed forces, the U.S. is the only developed country where the death penalty for felons is practiced. I subscribe to murders to prevent more murders. I support our armed forces worldwide although I don't want them to go amok. Death is just the complementary bookend of life. Where there's life, there's death. Abortion is a kind of death for a potential human being.

The several states had given rise to the U.S. Constitution and the federal government so the residual non-delegated powers should and do remain with the states. Roe v. Wade had been decided according to constitutional procedure decades ago so it carries the weight of a Supreme Court precedent. Texass' attempt to circumvent Roe v. Wade caused chaos by having citizens enforce the law via lawsuits. That'll be vigilantism to be resisted at all costs ( Ah know, ah know, three Justice seats of our Supreme Court had already been stolen by the dying White Supremacist GOOPy Party so... ) in order to defend liberty, against the creation of a citizen secret police state. The DDR was a modern example of what we need to steer clear off. I like DDR's national anthem but with most Commie things, that's not what people under Commie regimes get. 》Die Frucht der Arbeit gehört dem Arbeiter. Arbeit macht frei.《

I therefore take the conservative position that we should leave Roe v. Wade decision alone and not calling abortion a constitutional right simply because it's not there in the U.S. Constitution or any of its amendments.

"Abortion is a constitutional right - period. If men were the ones giving birth, I doubt that this would be in question. We must stand up and defend a woman’s right to control her own body. We must pass legislation that codifies Roe v. Wade - as the law of the land." ... from this tweet:

"Class Struggle defines most of human history - Marx got this right!!! It is not a new story. The rich, throughout history - have found ways to subjugate and re-subjugate the masses. And the masses, throughout history, have cyclically awoken to throw off their chains." - from:

"America’s New Class War" by Chris Hedges:

"There is one last hope for the United States. It does not lie in the ballot box. It lies in the union organizing and strikes by workers at Amazon, Starbucks, Uber, Lyft, John Deere, Kellogg, the Special Metals plant in Huntington, West Virginia, owned by Berkshire Hathaway, the Northwest Carpenters Union, Kroger, teachers in Chicago, West Virginia, Oklahoma and Arizona, fast-food workers, hundreds of nurses in Worcester, Massachusetts, and the members of the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees.

"Organized workers, often defying their timid union leadership, are on the march across the United States. Over four million workers, about 3% of the work force, mostly from accommodation and food services, healthcare and social assistance, transportation, housing, and utilities have walked away from jobs, rejecting poor pay along with punishing and risky working conditions. There is a growing consensus – 68% in a recent Gallup poll with that number climbing to 77% of those between the ages of 18 and 34 – that the only way left to alter the balance of power and force concessions from the ruling capitalist class is to mobilize and strike, although only 9% of the U.S. work force is unionized. Forget the woke Democrats. This Is A Class War.

"The question, Karl Popper reminded us, is not how we get good people to rule. Most of those attracted to power, figures such as Joe Biden, are at best mediocre and many, such as Dick Cheney, Donald Trump, or Mike Pompeo, are venal. The question is, rather, how do we organize institutions to prevent incompetent or bad leaders from inflicting too much damage. How do we pit power against power?"

He forgot to exercise Voluntary Apartheid. Burqas and hijabs are also instruments for the vulnerable ones to exercise Voluntary Apartheid from the porn-starved animals' evil eyes and more, in order to promote societal tranquillity.

Since the 2001 Sept. 11th attacks, the U.S. hasn't conferred and upheld national citizenships but non-suspect ones only ( dark-skin-toned ones need not apply -- conforming to Originalist English Common Law's precedents; to be fair, dark-skin-toned ones can apply for diversity immigrant visas; being disease-free with full-spectrum immunization such as having been CoViD-19-boosted shortly after 6 months of the last full-CoViD-19-vaccination shot is preferable; although much of the western U.S. was a cemetery made by the Yellowstone supervolcano's eruptions, most people migrate to it to live, not to die; we are already quite self-sufficient right now with cadavers to support our domestic non-foreign funeral homes well.)

Note - "The irony is that after spending his career as a conservative Democrat, Biden’s agenda is being thwarted by his own supposed allies. He ran as a creature of the Senate - who could force Republicans to support some of his most ambitious plans due to his decades in elected office. Now, he can not even whip support - from his own party. If the Democrats had not spent decades doing everything possible to disempower the left and the party’s activist base,Biden might actually be able to advance his legislation. Unfortunately, for the millions of people in the United States ... who stand to benefit from Biden’s stalled plans, that has never been a priority for the modern Democratic Party." - from:
