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.

I have only scanned this story because I am driving home from a trip. I am anxious to delve into it very deeply and see if it is all it should be cracked up to be. 😉🙂🙃
There is so much to be said. 🙂 Basically, giving such a forum to such a fool diminishes Stern in many ways. There can be no other verdict than to say that Howard Stern belongs nowhere near politics or philosophy as far as putting a stake in the ground. He might be very adept at coaxing out of people very important insights along those lines but he is incapable of or unwilling to filtering/filter bullshit.

It’s because money serves as the lever through which they can foist their decisions upon us using commercials, media time, and advertising, our modern day propaganda machine. It’s not as I used to think naively because they fear that Republicans will still outspend them in some way.
If if we were to remove their ability to spend money on manipulating us then they would have to seize and maintain their power the old-fashioned way which is by offering us ideas and reasons to elect them.
