about being liberal or conservative anymore y'all. That is a hype offered by the fascist whores who want to confuse the people with lies while they turn this country into an aristocratic police state. Some people will say anything to attain power and money. There is no such thing as the Liberal Media, but the Corporate media is very real.
Economic rights are human rights, and that is what I call Democratic Socialism....
They don't really oppose all forms of socialism. They may hate Democratic Socialism because it
benefits working people, but they absolutely love corporate socialism that enriches Trump and other
Here is snippet from FDR's 1944 State of the Union address, 11 January 1944
We have come to a clear realization of the fact that true individual freedom cannot exist without
economic security and independence. "Necessitous men are not free men." People who are hungry and
out of a job are the stuff of which dictatorships are made.
In our day these economic truths have become accepted as self-evident. We have accepted, so to
speak, a second Bill of Rights under which a new basis of security and prosperity can be established
for all — regardless of station, race, or creed.
Among these are:
The right to a useful and remunerative job in the industries or shops or farms or mines of
The right to earn enough to provide adequate food and clothing and recreation;
The right of every farmer to raise and sell his products at a return which will give him and
his family a decent living;
The right of every businessman, large and small, to trade in an atmosphere of freedom from
unfair competition and domination by monopolies at home or abroad;
The right of every family to a decent home;
The right to adequate medical care and the opportunity to achieve and enjoy good health;
The right to adequate protection from the economic fears of old age, sickness, accident, and
The right to a good education.
All of these rights spell security. And after this war is won we must be prepared to move forward,
in the implementation of these rights, to new goals of human happiness and well-being.
America's own rightful place in the world depends in large part upon how fully these and similar
rights have been carried into practice for our citizens.
And lest we forget, here is the preamble to the Constitution
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice,
insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and
secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this
Constitution for the United States
The fallacy of immigrants taking jobs
rather than conforming to the cultural economy is easily disproved.
The economy of humans exists to serve the needs of humans. When the larger society of humans
increases or aggregates in certain locations to form cities and towns, the economy expands, because
more people means more business. Like a bucket of water. Even if you add a lot of water at once, the
surface will swoosh to and fro initially, but eventually, the level of water will balance; because
jobs are proportional to the population. So the idea that immigrants are stealing native jobs is
mainly a distraction from the larger dysfunctional economic syndrome. The institutions and
entrepreneurs who form the economic networks that serve humans exist in a legal environment. When
that environment becomes manipulated by the wealthy, the privileged, and/or the scoundrels, the
system squeezes everyone else and then chooses easy scapegoats — those who are the most marginalized
and vulnerable — to avoid the obvious but inherent introspection: why our commonwealth cannot
organize a socially acceptable production system.
When immigrants are blamed for taking jobs, or lowering the wages, that is because they are being
blamed for the choices made or the environment created by those who depend upon employing the
immigrants. Increasing wages and jobs is not
antithetical to the profit motive, but becomes a lost message since it is easier to scapegoat and
misdirect in order to make more profits. It is easier to view the problem
from the shallow end of the pool, rather that venture out into the murky, deeper waters.

This is about the 1989 case called "The Central Park 5", when 5 black and latino youths were falsely
accused of raping a jogger in Central Park. Trump is asked about this because a recent Netflix
documentary has came out. In 2002, the person who actually did the crime confessed, and his DNA
matched. The 5 teenagers who were falsely convicted despite no DNA matches were then exonerated.
The story is all about the meme of you get "tough" on crime by putting people of color in jail
regardless of evidence. Which is what happened.
At the time Trump took out a full page ad in the New York Times newspaper telling citizens "Bring
Back the Death Penalty. Bring Back the Police!" when this controversy popped up in the latter 1980's.
Here is what Trump says when asked earlier this week:
You have people on both sides of that. They admitted their guilt. If you look at Linda Fairstein,
if you look at some of the city prosecutors, they think that the city should have never settled that
case. So, we'll leave it at that."
She is the daughter of a Vietnamese refuge and a small town Idaho farmer. She grew up in Boise with
her father after her parents divorced at the age of 3, but visited her mother in Southern California
regularly. She is also an accomplished jazz drummer.
Interesting and very intelligent woman.

The owner of the Japanese tanker attacked on Thursday said US reports have provided “false”
information about what happened in the Gulf of Oman.
The ship operator said “flying objects” that may have been bullets were the cause of damage to the
vessel, rather than mines used by Iranian forces, as the US has suggested.
Yutaka Katada, chief executive of the Japanese company operating the ship called Kokuka Courageous,
one of two vessels attacked near the Strait of Hormuz on Thursday, said the damage could not have
been caused by mines or torpedos that are shot underwater, since the damage was reportedly above the

Here is a depiction of Joseph Stalin's personality during the Great Purge, from a diary in 1935, one
of the early Communist Revolutionaries Nikolai Bukharin wrote:
“He is unhappy about not being able to convince everyone, himself included, that he is greater than
anyone. And this unhappiness of his may be his most human trait, perhaps the only human trait in
him, but what is not human, and rather something devilish, is that because of this unhappiness, he
cannot help but take revenge on people, on all people, but especially upon those whom he thinks is
in a higher or better way than him.”

The Color Grey
They suck the soul right out of you
They squeeze you down into and against the concrete
press you hard onto the solid flat surface of unreasonable expectations
and then hang you out to dry in the sun
while your true colors evaporate
and you become assessed somewhere in between the extremes of black and white
where all the gradations of the grey adumbrated spectrum apply
but since no one discerns character by shadows or shaded regions
you are not given the benefit of doubt
you are not allowed to rise into your own phantom shell
like shellfish and crustaceans who protect themselves from the weight of the sea with their hard
surviving on the refuse of the exterior environment
weighted on the scales at the market of vapid souls
and devoured without splendor by the cheerless bourgeoisie
because only the self-righteous think everyone else is a fool
needing scapegoats for their fragile occupation in the revenue stream
by which society allocates resources and income
and you think you are in the upper strata looking down
at the victims below
like paint which loses its color
squeezes itself into a dull darkened shade of grey
because we are all the same
just vulnerable creatures clinging to illusions
holding onto dreams or delusions
while still breathing

A False Choice Between Socialism and Freedom
These folks hold the specter of anti-freedom as a bloody shirt. They call discussing national
investment into infrastructure Government dictatorship, and praise something they call the free
market as a glorious installation of democracy liberty.
So what is it when large firms of investment funds buy small businesses and properties all over the
world and nation, then make decisions that are not in the best interests of the local communities
and long-term economic policy of the nation? Using taxes to make national investments in the best
interests of the nation is enshrined in the Constitution in the phrase "general Welfare of the
GENERAL WELFARE CLAUSE. Article I, section 8 of the U. S. Constitution grants Congress the power to
"lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts, and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common
defense and general Welfare of the United States."
Seems to me that these purveyor's of nonsense ought to actually read the constitution they allege to
defend and honor, instead of lambasting anything they don't like or can't make money off as the
horrors of socialism because The New Deal did not fail, The GI Bill did not fail, The California
Water and Agricultural Cooperatives did not fail, Social Security is not failing, Medicare is not
failing. The internet did not fail either. Using taxes to provide for the General Welfare is not
socialism. It is an American
Constitutional solution to the reality that money and wealth tend to become authoritarian and
aristocratic, rather than based upon fairness, justice, merit or actual need.

The Military Industrial Virus
The sop to the corporate boondoggle actual makes our military worse. We spend more money on the
military than the aggregate spending of the rest of the world, and at least 25% of the budget is
unaccountable by standard accounting practices. On top of the throwing money at defense contractor
sales pitches for projects that never work or constantly malfunction and/or are completely
unreliable to the troops everyone worships to "respect".
Fuck these assholes. I love my country. We do not have to spent this much money to defend it. For
what? A bottomless pit of corporate insider malfeasance?

Mike Malloy at his best
Senator Tom Cotton from Arkansas side stepped a question about the effect on farmer's by bringing up
the sacrifices of United States military troops. He pivots to the patriotism issue immediately. He
says we can win a war in Iran with two military strikes. Pathetic. What do they have on your soul
Mr. Cotton to make you such an obvious tool?
