Human society under urgent threat from loss of Earth’s natural life
Joe Biden’s non-apology to Anita Hill casts long shadow over 2020 run
How willing these idiotic primary voters are to hand over power to this childish fool, Joe Biden. Even after this much exposure his failures and weaknesses keep getting excused and ignored. Well, there really is no use feeling sorry for what people choose to inflict upon themselves, their poor, hapless selves, over and over again. With Trump’s election there seems no logical end to the degree of pain the suffering and ignorant are willing to inflict upon themselves.
But really the blame falls on the socioeconomic system and its philosophy or really the utter lack thereof that allows a democratic electorate to become so ignorant as to their own best interests and how to properly govern themselves as human beings or as a nation.

Speaking your voice and reaching out to your elected representatives seemingly could not be any easier than it is right now. Resistbot is a wonderful tool that allows you to painlessly communicate your thoughts, wishes, complaints, congratulations, anything you care to impart, to your elected representatives as well as other institutions, and it also keeps you informed of other important things you might want to know about as a responsible, conscientious citizen of the United States of America.
What a filthy piece of work this was.
I will be exhaustively annotating and updating this post going forward as it seems so important and pregnant with relevance and wisdom for our current situation and likely that for years to come.
Religious belief appears to have negative influence on children’s altruism and judgments of others’ actions even as parents see them as ‘more empathetic’

The politics and business of health care, by Caitlin Owens. Weekday mornings

So, look at this paragraph:
Biden’s proposal is more ambitious than anything that was seriously on the table during the ACA debate, but looks decidedly moderate compared to Bernie Sanders’ plan — which is significantly more ambitious than almost any other health care system in the world.
It appears to me that the corporate-owned/corporate-controlled media have elected to swap out the word “worse” for “moderate”, and “better” for “ambitious”. And I think the reason why they did that is because the de-facto tendency for corporate/conservative/status-quo/commercial media is to make it look like, “Gosh, it’s just too hard to do good things. :-/ Sorry! I mean, we just tried to do something good and that didn’t work, but now you want to do something *really* good? How do you think *that* will turn out? :-/ Yeah. Now I’m really worried. Let’s not do that. That’s just too hard. It might not work.”
Well, that’s weak. 🙂 And it seems like propaganda and not educational discourse. So have fun reading your Axios and feeling like you are more aware than you were before you read it. You were probably more correct in your thinking prior to reading it. Remember the news that Fox News viewers were actually less informed than those who watch *none* of that garbage, commercial, cable-TV, non-local news.
There are striking, if comical by comparison, parallels here if you read those articles. 🙂
One of the most tragic consequences of the way we have chosen to structure our stupid society is that sex between a man and a woman has largely been reduced to be merely a financial transaction, a commodity, and that is because white male capitalist supremacists are too greedy and stupid to conceive of a world in which things don’t have price tags. It seems to baffle them. So instead of sex being a fun, social, exquisite, delightful pleasure that we experience freely and in abundance (even if it’s with the same person within a monogamous relationship, by the way — I’m not talking about “sex planet” here) it becomes something else, something less, something cheap, used for leverage, for personal gain, for power, for social standing, even just to put food on the table, which might be the saddest thing of all.
Well, I would encourage people to think differently about things and instead seek to frolic freely with the opposite sex at every opportunity. Go with your gut! Follow your bliss! You know you want to. Because at some point either men will need to stop paying for sex or women will need to stop asking for compensation for it. Who will make the first move? Maybe both? Well, let’s get with it, shall we??? :-))))))))))
Listen to this while the hurricane beats down on you. 🙂🕊️💜🌍

The Hill: New York Democrat on Ocasio-Cortez, other progressives: ‘Primaries go two
Yes, let’s pick more fights. Let’s use more violent language to substitute for rational civic discourse.
I think being in the same place for eleven terms has made this person very content to keep things as they are and he will obviously resort to abuse, at least verbal, in order to maintain the status quo.
Also, I’m willing to bet money that someone who speaks like this in public would not hesitate to physically abuse women and children — the least powerful in our society — as well.
That sounds like a conservative to me, i.e., someone who does not value progress and action. Step up and either act like a true liberal Democrat is supposed to act or have the courage to switch parties, unless you don’t think you could win an election that way.
From where might I acquire such a jacket? 🙂 Because me needs one!
