I’m continually astounded by the lack of personal accountability in our society. Finding someone who is willing to accept responsibility for something seems like a rare gem. Unfortunately there are too few of them gems and they are likely underappreciated, unacknowledged, and underpaid. Those people are what holds our society together.

Listening to the segment of Democracy Now reporting on the treatment of Haitian refugees is disgusting. This country is of no moral worth.
This is fucking nuts!! 🙂 Tulsi Gabbard can go straight to hell. I don’t know what the fuck happened to her brain, but she is now an establishment bot just like everyone else in DC. What the fuck happened to her?? Was there some massive blackmail by the CIA or something?? Did someone threaten to kill her husband or children?? That’s the only thing I can honestly imagine to cause somebody to go back on what she’s said in the past like this, in this manner.
What an excellent conversation between Chris Hedges and Wendy Brown!
You can also watch the video on RT.
This nicely lays out how we are currently living in a totalitarianist society, but a modified one, one without a monolithic leader, one that pretends to respect democracy and representative government when in actuality the decisions are made behind the curtain and away from public eyes.
The Daily Beast: Biden Laughs Off Sagging Poll Numbers, Defends Afghanistan Mess.
Biden is a doddering old fool, emblematic of imperial American foreign policy thinking. He should be put out to pasture along with the massively destructive Pentagon in CIA, who have caused more death and destruction on this planet than any other organizations in history. If you don’t believe me, why don’t you try reading a book at your local library. If you still have one.
To say that this is a complicated mess and there is no right decision, why don’t you hit yourself in the head again, because clearly you’ve done so many times in the past, maybe even accidentally. A wonderful solution to this could have been spending even a tiny fraction of our disgustingly obese war budget on setting up humanitarian institutions in the country, if we were actually to care about such things, and just simply let the people govern themselves and give those who want better things an alternative. Oh, but I’m not a policy analyst who went to school too long and got sufficiently indoctrinated to think any of this was ever a good idea.
Fuck you, white nigger!!!
I mean seriously! Get your brain fixed and then your tailpipe. You measly bitch. Do something meaningful in life instead of making farting noises all the time with your incessant and well-earned stupidity radiating from your engines. I’m glad you can afford to trick out your car or your precious Harley while your teeth are falling back in your head, you lumpkin! May diabetes curse your lineage forever. You are stifling modernity with your every breath. I hope you peter out soon enough that I can enjoy some peaceful years before I die. May my children grow up knowing nothing of what you have inflicted upon civilization. 🙂🤬😙☺️🙃
TheHill: Fauci: Joe Rogan’s COVID-19 comments ‘incorrect’. https://thehill.com/homenews/media/550632-fauci-joe-rogans-comments-about-young-healthy-people-not-needing-a-vaccine
Instead of just spouting lines from one person and another this journalist could have delved into the details and synthesized something useful. This article leaves the reader with nothing but confusion. What is the point of that? It isn’t even educational. There are important points made by Joe Rogan that are true and inarguable and those are not contested by the supposed experts. That would be an interesting angle for the journalist to explore.
It all comes down to logic, people. Use your fucking brain and think.
If you utilize your ability to skip past vast amounts of useless exposition (at least) I think you’ll find Gladiator to be a reliable view this year.
It seems to be a timely piece, depicting principled individuals speaking truth to power, power both amoral, unethical, disjointed, disorganized, unreasonable, illogical, unenlightened, dishonorable, delusional, and corrupt . . . among other things.
But anyway! I do think this is a useful watch for getting your brain ready for what’s necessary in the next stage of our national/global development if we are to survive as a species. Watch closely, learn your lessons well, and practice in your own life.
