The Ghost of Eugene Debs. #Politics In The US Remains Cyclical

In the 1930’s after the collapse of the stock market and mass economic collapse, socialism rose and was partially embraced as a temporary measure by FDR and Congress with the “New deal.”

During that time labor protests racked much of America as workers fought for what they saw as their rights against entrenched business  interests.

The recent Presidential election has once again exposed a rift between the populist leftist wing of the Democrat party (temporarily represented by Bernie Sanders) & the corporate, big bank friendly/war exporting wing of Hillary Clinton.

With Silicon Valley leadership (Jack Dorsey, etc)  preaching leftism and inclusiveness while not actually delivering on the results (poor hiring practices leaving minorities out in the cold, homelessness and a corporate aesthetic taking over San Francisco rather than a vibrant and eclectic city) socialism is once again making a comeback.

At the same time high tech, through the use of borderless (largely unregulated) apps ( like Uber)  undermines even BASIC employment protections that most Americans think of as basic, routine and theirr rights.

IE being an employee and not an independent contractor when you don’t actually control the work you do, workers’ compensation (itself earned through compromise with business interests) and perhaps a dash of time off.

This is hardly unexpected when those same states leave youth uneducated, incarcerated at massive rates and quite frequently jobless, yet without entrepreneurial skills to make their own way.

It’s as if the business left is pulling the wool over the eyes of everyone and expect to have their whole cake and eat it too.

And we all know what happened to Marie Antoinette.

We now have a President elect that’s actually less conservative than Hillary Clinton, yet somehow despised by the left due to the Democrats attempts to rig the election for Hillary Clinton?

How will this play out?  Well I expect actual jobs bills similar in nature to a new “new deal.”

And the self appointed “cultural elites” like Bob Chipman, AKA @the_moviebob?  

Folks like Bob are the same old hate from the Bay Area and Orange County that previous generations of Dust Bowlers felt in the 1930’s and 1940’s.

In other words, politics is cyclical and same as it ever was.

There’s no reason to fear putting people to work who need work and will work.  None.

Will the Democratic party find it’s soul and actually function to protect workers, or will it remain tied to big banks, and tech while lying to their own electorate publically while maintaining private positions?

Will the GOP stop teaching young activists to abolish the Commerce Department even as Congress has explicit authority to regulate interstate commerce?

“to regulate commerce with foreign nations, and among the several states, and with the Indian tribes.”

Time will tell.

Is Trump Hoover or Eisenhower?

Dear @HillaryClinton, Some Ideas To Remain Useful In Your Dotage.

Dear Hillary Clinton,

Due to a shocking display of every deplorable ISM possible, you are not President.

Given the fact that your Foundation appears riddled with corruption in an attempt to personally harness the government, media and foreign policy of the United States for your personal enrichment we have some ideas about how you can spend your dotage.  (You may not have a Foundation for very long.)

If you end up in prison, these ideas probably (mostly) will not work.

10.  Become a dog walker in New York.  Thus you can canvas for the Democrats and actually talk to normal people and not Democrat operatives pretending to “bump” into you post election.

9.  Give Bill a sloppy BJ.  Work on that marriage, girl!  Bill is just a misunderstood male after all.  He loves everyone!

8.  Apply to work as a Greeter at Wal Mart.  Since you know Arkansas and the Walton’s this should be an easy get.

7.  Go to Haiti and give them back their money.  Looting countries (allegedly) is not nice.

6.  Take an adult education class on the internet.  Learn about hackers, cyber security and how to protect your personal information (and national security.)

5.  Learn a second language.  For you, Chinese or Arabic, the better to solicit donations to your political action committee (I mean “foundation”, sorry).

4.  Spend time with your grandchildren.

3.  Kick Harry Reid in the balls.  He really deserves it.  Truly.

2.  Apologize to Bernie Sanders for rigging the entire Democrat party, Administration and news media against him.

1.  Work as a volunteer bell ringer for the Salvation Army.  Your staff thinks you are not normal and don’t relate to regular people.  This would help.

0.  Work on saying, “I plead the 5th” and hire a brilliant defense attorney.

 

 

Logic (Lack Of) Checking @HillaryClinton: Violence And Peace #politics

Hillary Clinton seems ill prepared and lacking in knowledge of human motivation, violence and how to achieve peace.

Clearly, as long as there are people who are willing to shed blood and take innocent life in the name of greed, politics, race etc there will never be a true and lasting peace.

That people have the inherent right of self defense is a matter of matter of US and international law.

Not to mention ethics and morality.

However, Hillary Clinton would use government coercion to stop people expressing their first amendment rights for fear of a violent response.

This, rather than act to protect and defend the citizens and constitution of the United States from a violent response to people utilizing their first amendment rights.

Hillary-Clinton-Quotes-and-Sayings-brainy-peace

 

“As long as there are those who are willing to shed blood and take innocent life in the name of religion, the name of God, the world will never know a true and lasting peace.”

 

With a few simple word changes you get:

“As long as there are those who are willing to shed blood and take innocent life in the name of business, the name of capitalism, the world will never know a true and lasting peace.”

“As long as there are those who are willing to shed blood and take innocent life in the name of bananas, the name of King Kong, the world will never know a true and lasting peace.”

“As long as there are those who are willing to shed blood and take innocent life in the name of Empire Avenue , the name ofDups Wijayawardhana , the world will never know a true and lasting peace.”

 

As long as people will use threats of violence, bullying and intimidation to try to obtain their desired ends, there will be no peace.

In this I see no difference between international terrorists and homegrown bullies such as Keith Gill, Chris Sandys, Nance Larson and Gareth Davies of the EmpireKred “goon squad.”

The willingness to use threats, intimidation and bullying should not be tolerated in civilized society.

Keith Gill has been moderated by instagram for cyberbullying, Chris Sandys by twitter for non violent threats and Gareth Davies for tweeting private information and violent threats.

Nance Larson participated in the doxing of a customer, and as a Team Leader at Empire  Avenue failed to stop the above actions.

Our national politicians should act to protect the citizens of the United States.

Just as the CA DoJ and SF DA’s office acted to protect the first amendment rights of citizens being assaulted by the “goon squad.”

 

Hillary Clinton (Lack OF) Logic Check OR @HillaryClinton; Full of Bullshit. #commentary #politics

Let’s compare Hillary Clinton’s statement to known history with a quick logic check.

 

“Let’s be clear: Islam is not our adversary.

 

When your enemy fights in the name of their ideology (Islam) that’s the cause of their aggression (in their own words!).  So while the religion itself is not our enemy, SOME of the adherants are.

First sentence is factually correct.

However, let’s play with the second sentence.

Muslims are peaceful and tolerant people and have nothing whatsoever to do with terrorism.”

 

Germans are peaceful and tolerant people and have nothing whatsoever to do with Nazism.

Chinese are peaceful and tolerant people and have nothing whatsoever to do with Communism.

Cambodians are peacful and tolerant people and have nothing whatsoever to do with the Khmer Rouge…

Vikings are peaceful and tolerant people and have nothing whatsoever to do with invading Ireland..

See how this works?
Hillary Clinton is a bullshit artist, purely and simply.

Bullshit
