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.
Robert Reich - UC Berkeley spring 2023 lecture on Wealth and Inequality
Should we care about widening between wealth and inequality?
Around the timestamp 4 minutes, Reich discusses what the social contract means as various levels : the classroom level of students, the larger university of students, the Berkeley community, the Bay Area community, the community of citizens of the United States ...
[But] What do we owe each other? We are very good talking about rights. We got a Bill of Rights. What about a bill about responsibilities?
I found that an interesting concept. People use words to conceal what it is they actual truly want to conserve, so my first thought is the word "freedom". Free to do what we think we are entitled to do, backed up by what is categorized as "common sense". The word "freedom" is not understood outside of the context in which the word is used, in the sense that "freedom" might not be an action insomuch as an ideal environment requiring certain individual responsibilities in order to be achieved.

The real issue is housing
Addressing the housing issue means turning away from expecting the building industry to alter it's focus on expensive luxury developments, while also addressing the large number (12 million) of vacant homes. The market that the corporate firms want is the market of those who have money, and that's the same market for seasonal homes rented out by airbnb.
According to the census.gov website (timestamp 6 minute in the video)
In 645 of the nation's 3,143 counties, seasonal units made up at least 50% of the vacant housing. In 1,313 counties, seasonal units outnumbered the combined total number of units for rent or sale that were vacant.
That's called a Mic-drop.

Jen Psaki interviews Alexandria Ocasio Cortez
I love AOC with all my heart. She is the voice of the modern United States. She is the historical version of our great House of Legislators of the past, a great orator of the moment.

More worried about wolves than ak-47 guns killing children.
What a shill and false patriot.

Ron Johnson is
a pathetic excuse of a man ...
Look at the eyes.
Their hypocrisy is without bounds.
And here is Kentucky House Rethuglican critter James Comer
Because of course, it's really about law and order -- and not about framing issues around politics so you can score points with the low information single issue voters of your base

Incredible discussion about food, health, longevity, and eating
Mark Sisson is the founder of Primal Kitchen Avocado Mayonnaise and other products. I buy his mayonaisse regularly and use it to make various sauces with spices. He has been doing a blog at Marksdailyapple for more than a decade, and maybe two. The man is very intelligent.
Thomas DeLauer is equally intelligent in his own right. He's been doing health videos on YouTube for almost a decade (I think). He brings up science and relevant, reliable scientific studies that accentuate his vids.
You can get an education from both of these men.
