It's not 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.

Bernie is strong



The hired word merchants will make you think that "electability" is about whatever meme or narrow frame they want to squeeze into reality. Why are repentant Republican's being paraded all over the media telling non-Republican's how to vote?

Oh ... because the corporate media hires them.

Excuse me, but you fuckers corrupted and demolished the integrity of your own party, why the fuck do you think you have any credibility whatsoever?

According to the moderate statistically honest web-site realclearpolitics.com ... Bernie has the best odds of beating trump.

You beat fake grassroots with the real thing. Every single time. The DNC elites think promoting a generic political insider to play the role of public servant is somehow equivalent. Sad. Because it really is all about voter turn-out. Nearly 45% of the eligible voters do not vote and the vast majority of them will vote if there actually was a candidate who spoke for their interests. This is why Obama won. He was able to convince marginal voters that he spoke to their interests, so they voted.

The Melodic Minor Jazz Scale

If you are into jazz guitar, Jens Larsen is an excellent resource. Here he explains how to use the Melodic Minor scale within Jazz Progressions.

The Melodic Minor is exactly the same as the Major scale EXCEPT it has a flat third.



I don't understand music in the same way, so Jens is refreshing for me.

Tommy Emmanuel and John Knowles

Two dudes way older than me 6 years ago.



I am old enough to remember the Bee Gees from the 1970's. They came out roughly at the same time as Fleetwood Mac, and the two bands blew away everyone at the time. Kind of like Indie Rock does to mainstream music every decade. Like whoa, that's hella good.

Update: Also, in that genre, look up Air Supply, Abba, Queen, and the Village People.

The quiet part

As usual Beau speaks the inescapable sophisticated truth

This is hopeful

This is a good regular show. Krystal Ball is awesome and Saagar Enjeti is not too shabby himself. It's put together by "The Hill".



From wikipedia

The Hill is an American website, based in Washington, D.C. which began as a newspaper publisher in 1994. It is owned by Capitol Hill Publishing, which is owned by News Communications, Inc.

I love Robert Reich

Here he is discussing the media freak-out about Bernie Sanders, clueless about the reality of the non-establishment people and their issues, because the corporate media are gate-keepers for the status quo.

My latest Comic

I've been doing comics for years, ever since I met an incredible artist who drew comic books with a 6 color pen back in 1981. He was the older son of 2 deaf parents who lived directly across the street from me. He had a collection of 20 plus comic books that he drew by hand.

Amazing how Common Sense actually backs Science



We humans are just the latest formation of the primordial slurry of life. Orchestrating ignorance is the pastime of the morbid rich (as opposed to the enlightened rich), which is why they fund large institutions that promote untruths and ignorance, throwing out verbal slurs and sponsoring the basal instincts of humanity in order to sustain this dysfunctional economic system.

When the circulation of money gradually accrues to a smaller and smaller slice of the human spectrum, we get a dysfunctional society. Those who lack power get marginalized and are pushed to the edge of their ability to exist within the framework of the social economy. This is akin to your blood circulation gradually accumulating more and more around your pituitary gland. The rest of the body organs gradually become starved of nutrients and oxygen in order to satiate the needs of the 0.001 percent of body mass.

It's time to cut the strings of the puppet masters, because they are blindly walking the human race into extinction, unwilling to see the delusion of their self-serving paradigm.

I'm looking at you Michael Bloomberg.

Let me go there

I use the word Rethuglican a lot to describe the critters who wear the badge of Republican as if that word had any value at all.

The world Republican means you honor the Republic, rather than undermine the constitution and constantly lie for the donor classes that pay for your Congressional slot.

It's really that simple.

Another reason why we need National Health Insurance

Okay so you have health care and want to use it to be safe and do what's right for the larger community but ...


After returning to Miami last month from a work trip in China, Osmel Martinez Azcue found himself in a frightening position: he was developing flu-like symptoms, just as coronavirus was ravaging the country he had visited.

Under normal circumstances, Azcue said he would have gone to CVS for over-the-counter medicine and fought the flu on his own, but this time was different. As health officials stressed preparedness and vigilance for the respiratory illness, Azcue felt it was his responsibility to his family and his community to get tested for novel coronavirus, known as COVID-19.

...

Fortunately ... He [only] had the flu, not the deadly virus that has infected tens of thousands of people, mostly in China, and killed at least 2,239 as of Friday’s update by the World Health Organization.

But two weeks later, Azcue got unwelcome news in the form of a notice from his insurance company about a claim for $3,270.


[SOURCE: Ben Conarck | Miami Herald | 24 February 2020]

Which of course means very little incentive for people to get tested, which will only spread the virus more effectively.

The United States' Health Care system is not only expensive, but dysfunctional and broken. Don't listen to the water carriers hired by the media (owned by the pharmaceutical/hospital/insurance industry) to spew talking points and scare monger. Health care is not a sector of the economy that can be efficiently managed by the private sector because the perverse incentives to earn profits distort the system's ability to actually provide the service. In addition to being completely unable to address large scale systemic health issues -- like Diabetes, Cancer, and infectious diseases -- because more profits accrue by addressing the symptoms rather than addressing systemic causes.

Also. The cost of such a dysfunctional system is twice that of any other nation on Earth, from a fucking country that has more then 10 Standard Deviations of wealth than any other nation on Earth. Are we so blinded by ideology that we cannot get past this moniker of socialism? Getting better healthcare at half the cost ... will lead us to totalitarianism ?????

Hmm ... frankly I think the anti-socialist Rethuglican zealots are doing a fine job with that already.
