"From a friend 2/14/17: "One of my regulars has a contact inside ICE and just told me there are mass raids planned for Chicago this week. Round-up quota is 20k people. They're mostly targeting schools, churches, etc. One of the neighborhoods on the list was Pilsen." Please copy/paste without attribution.

''Islamophobia Is the Glue That Unites Diverse Factions of the Far Right'', by Spencer Sunshine:

''Fighting the Wrong Enemy: Why Americans Hate Muslims'', by Ramzy Baroud:

''Barring citizens of Muslim countries from travelling to the US is a great act of immorality and injustice. Sadly, many Americans report that such discriminatory laws already make them feel safe, which itself is an indication of how the government and media manipulate consent in this country to produce the desirable results.''

caveat emptor ...

You are welcome, inspirational teacher of those who seek truth, here, by your good example and illustrative links, in these dark hours.....

I am glad even one can appreciate and share in truth of the economic stranglehold of neoliberal retardicans and dumboshills of "new age dems" of the 20th and 21st century. It is good to learn, and understand, though many are blinded in ignorance, even sin of superiority ego and self-obsession of the trump truthers and their leaders. Even armed with best data and perfect logic and argument, the truth can not sink into the republican retarded brain for they are wired for ignorance due to their past learning and habit, http://www.salon.com/2017/07/10/the-answers-to-two-big-questions-about-trump-and-the-gop-that-keep-befuddling-progressives_partner/

''The Powell Memo'', is at the heart and root of Oligarchic Crapitalism in U$A & deserves continuous reprise and consideration, imo. Ergo, I append this link:

Your interesting link starts with: ''Progressives are stumped. They keep asking the same two questions over and over again on social media, TV, and radio:

  • 1. Why don’t Trump supporters turn against Trump even though he is doing things that hurt them (like taking away their health care)?

  • 2. Why do Republicans hate the Affordable Care Act and why are they so transparently acting to give wealthy people a tax break by making health care unaffordable?

''Here is the short answer: All politics is moral. Supporting Trump, and gutting public health care resources in order to provide tax cuts for the wealthy, fits perfectly within the strict conservative moral worldview, which is hierarchical in nature. Voters don’t vote their self-interest. They vote their values.

''The longer answer requires a deeper explanation. Let’s start with the place where all ideas and questions originate: the brain''!


While I could agree with much of the article, there was at least one omission in that years & years of Lee Atwater's "Southern Strategy" type - Bat Shit Crazy, GOP & RWNJ, GOP-Lite Dem thinking and deep propaganda; has rendered a shocking number of White Folk in U$A - willing to vote like Turkeys Voting For Thanksgiving and willing to forego what all other modern nations have (eg. Universal Health Care) .. just because the thought of people of colour {and especially African-Americans) may gain too, is so Deeply Unpalatable to them! Add to that, ''programmed false consciousness''; a reality of broken democracy; Mass Voter Suppression & Gerrymandering - and basically we're all faced with a de facto Fascism in USA!! HOWEVER .. there is hope because despite all that I said, Bernie Sanders won 23 States & had to be cheated out of the Dem Nomination, via DWS, DNC and their b-s ''Super Delegate'' system BUT it's clear to one and all, that Bernie v tRUMP .. would & could, have only gone one way!!!

TY for your kind words gsw. Solidarity in The Struggle For Freedom, of which OWS & Bernie are parts.

Yes, it's true. Being birds of the same ilk, Eagle and Rooster should flock together. Cock-ad-oodle-doo!

Concerning being stronger together.

A reply I sent to Liz Warren in regards to a e-mail where she stated that the world just got a little bit better with the withdrawal of Drumpf's nominee for labor secretary.


-> Where is the concerted united and very vocal outrage of the rest of the democrats? His appointees are pure poison and yet you all basically act as though this is just another day in the neighborhood!

I am sorry but OUR government is BROKEN - NONE OF YOU SUPPORT THE PUBLIC'S BEST INTERESTS.

YOU ALL PLAY YOUR OWN GAMES AND TO HELL WITH WHAT IS NEEDED AND OR BEST FOR OUR WHOLE SOCIETY!

This was made very clear when none of you rallied around Bernie Sanders and his whole campaign platform - NO - INSTEAD sHillary Rotten Clinton was pushed down the public's throat even though WE DID NOT WANT HER and her lip-service attempt to steal Bernie's campaign platform!

YOU ALL HAVE MUCH TO DO IF YOU EVER EXPECT TO REGAIN PUBLIC TRUST.

You lost seats to the republicans - AGAIN!!! - on issues where they are blatantly against the working man = YOU LOST!!!!!!!!!!

Do You Understand how serious this trend IS ?

It is about the destabilization of the USA due to failure of government to represent for the Public!

Insane crook conman misogynist and racist is our elected PRESIDENT !

How sick and broken is our society that this could EVER happen!
