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.

Beau on the Confederate Flag

This is Beau discussing a phenomenal understanding of Southern Racism and why the Confederate Flag used is inherently racist.



Beau makes a cogent and compelling argument, is disarming, and polite -- but he calls out the racism and racial violence for exactly what it is. Racism and racial violence are despicable and unworthy of our great nation. It is a scourge indicative of a dysfunctional society because we are out of balance. The economic system has devolved into thoughtless, short-sighted exploitation, and the elites would rather foment racial psychopathy then enable a more harmonious society. As such they make up fake villains, and hire propagandists to trout out the memes to keep the subjugated classes fighting one another.

For example, did you know what almost everyone perceives as the Confederate flag (the blue diagonal cross with stars with 4 red triangles on the edges) is actually the Flag of the Army of the Confederacy -- not the flag of the Confederate "nation".

This is the Flag of "The Confederate States of America."



This is the Confederate Battle Flag of the military.



Hence those who display the Confederate Battle flag are actually displaying a military flag. As Beau states in the video dialogue, the confederate battle flag was first put on the flag of the state of Georgia 2 years after the supreme court decision of Brown vs. the Kansas Board of Education. It's a display to remind the blacks to keep their place, a reminder of the horrific past of white sheets, lynchings, church bombings and racially motivated massacres.

I Love Dr. Ken Berry

And not just because of his Tennessee accent. :-)

Did you know Fatty Liver from High-Carb, High-Sugar diets are far worse than alcoholic related liver disease?

A Doctor who knows the brain

Dr David Perlmutter is profound in this dialogue. He dispels a lot of common myths and enlightens a greater understanding on the relationship between the gut, the food you eat, and the microbiological organisms that live in the gut. This video is a must see.



He has a you tube channel

Here are a few interviews with amazing information about real nutritional advice.

I love Randi Rhodes



A reminder, @ the 7:45 Mark ...

I have (uh) President Putin, he just said it's not Russia. I will say this, I don't see any reason why it would be ...

Except that every single National Security person in the government (Sally Yates, look it up) says otherwise.

Notice the pre-phrase "I will say this".

I have (uh) a gun, and I did not fire the gun. I will say this, I don't see any reason why I would have fired the gun.

Oh, but that dead body called American Democracy is laying flat right before the eyes of every single American who looks. Thankfully 75% of the country sees reality.

Do innocent people pre-phrase their sentences with "I will say this" ? That's legal talk. That's what knowingly guilty people do in order to message the minds of the willing receptors. It is a fence for mental rambling with self-justifying redemption. You accuse me of something. I deny it. Then I speak to the accusation as if I'd like to meet you half the way with a phrase called "I will say this" and then conclude that I don't see any reason why the accusation should apply, without ever systematically addressing the points made as to why the accusations should apply.

Thom Hartmann speaks to relevance

Thom has been a radio talk show host speaking truth and intelligence for more than 20 years. I used to listen to his radio show regularly throughout the Dubya Bush years.

I love Alexandria Ocasio Cortez

You go girl.



The marginal tax rate inhibits the tendencies of the capitalist economic system to gradually accelerate the accumulation of wealth into ever smaller narrower channels. History is riddled with social systems rife with inequality, which is why the triangle symbol has long been used to represent the upside down nature of the human condition in large social systems. Using government as a salve for the various aggregate social issues is more efficient for certain sectors of society, but various interests benefit from the status quo, and when money can be used to compromise sane national policy decisions, you can bet your last dollar that is exactly what will occur.

People are one paycheck away from impoverishment

They trot out the low unemployment rate, but ignore the aggregate lack of wealth accumulation.


[SOURCE: CNBC]

in addition to other data points that are more relevant to the actual economic health of the social system (healthcare expenses, consumer debt, college debt, house ownership distributions, rising rents).

But I digress,



Brace yourself for the 5:48 mark where you hear a gleefully positive Trump Economic Advisor speak of the current government furloughs due to Herr Trumps temper tantrum. He blithely speaks of the timing over the holidays coinciding with vacation time, and then without shame states that once the government reopens they will get their back pay and it will all be "a wash".

Oh my F*!!ing god.

One of the comments below the video struck my fancy

Republicans colluded with Russian mafia to get absolute power, and end democracy.

Which I agree is really extreme, but given how insane and borderline psychotic some of them have been acting (#WheresMitch), it does make you wonder if the Russians have "Compromat" on more than a few Republican politicians. I wonder what the Koch brothers think.

You have to learn how to change

I confronted a fellow at a cafe that I have encountered for about a year now. He would say hello and speak with every single customer if I was waiting in line. He would also often engage in pronounced conversations with the other customers. Then it would come my turn, and he just reaches out his hand and says nothing to me, often not even looking at me with his eyes.

This didn't bother me personally. Why should I give a shit that some barista acknowledges me? But as a student of human psychology, the behavior was obvious. I could analyze but it would be only speculation. No one really ever knows why other people you vaguely know do what they do, and any attempt at interpretation is bound to fall victim to your own internalized biases and personal issues.

Would this be a one time thing, I would just push it aside. But it was happening every single time, and I recently just ran into the guy at a neighborhood bar when I went to the bank ATM and saw him and a few friends hanging out. So this morning, once again, for perhaps the twentieth time, it happens. I am waiting behind four other customers and he is personable to all of them, but is silent when I arrive with his hand extended for me to give him my Contigo coffee mug, not looking at me at all.

I ask in a purposefully meak voice: "You say hello to everyone else ... but me?" He immediately moved his eyes up to meet mine. His response was that he was tired, and then I replied, "I mean it's all good, I was just wondering ... Okay ... no worries."

Some people might be offended when you inquire about things of this nature. My view is that I could just keep my thoughts to myself, and just assume my own views about these matters. After all, the thoughts are happening regardless I vocally say anything. However, I had enough respect for this fellow that I asked him what is up in the most inoffensive way I could. I gave him an opportunity to tell me or at least let him know how I was perceiving our current interactions.

This is how you think when you are comfortable with yourself. When you are insecure or unsettled however, you perceive antagonism or degradation through the prism of your mind. Which is why you have to change your way of thinking. That way how your mind processes events is largely up to you. Events are going to happen. They are not going to change. Sometimes life is unjust and unfair. But you are still going to be living in the aftermath these events, so how you adapt and evolve is necessary for your own mental health, in addition to being the most beneficial path for all individuals concerned.

Fears

Honestly I'm very afraid of what these fuckers have planned, but I trust in the true patriots of our country who have filtered this out. Thank Malcolm Vance (do a google).

This government shutdown is insane. Government is actually more efficient than private enterprise on certain sectors of the socio-economic spectrum -- but not all. 800,000 employees out of a population of 330 million is less than -- (800,000 divided by 330,000,000) -- is less than 0.5 percent.

I ask you this: what private enterprise in the United States has management expenses/employees less than 0.5% over services rendered?

Answer: none.

We do not have a bloated government on the employee side of the matter. The Bloated side is the outsourced money - going to private contractors - or the financing of the government debt necessitated by the tax reductions. Government costs need to be paid for. The idea that government costs can be reduced beyond a certain minimum efficiency is a lie that justifies the paradigm which supports loaning governments the sums that are inherently necessary to manage a society of 330 millions of people. What happens is that the wealthy buy the bonds and earn the interest on the loans to the government, rather than pay their taxes.

This has been understood by ancient to modern societies throughout human history. If the upper classes horde the wealth created by their population, a distribution problem occurs that eventually impoverishes and enslaves a vast majority of the population. After that, the real catastrophes of civil war, world war, economic malaise, and social cataclysm occur. The stressed out masses cannot look at their leaders with respect when all of the promises made fall apart. In the ancient days, sacrifices of animals and war prisoners were just an effort to distract and compel the public to obey. What do we do in the modern world, when we humans are supposedly more sophisticated?

We offer up distractions. Look over here, over here, not there, over here. The true villians are over here, not over there.

Repeat.
