AND THEY’RE OFF AND RUNNING.

Here’s why Trump is a great gift to America..(from Alternet)

In a free society you don’t get to commandeer other people’s lives. You don’t get to tell people how to live but you still need to spot and thwart the assholes or it doesn’t remain a free society.

If humanity is to survive, we therefore, need to know how to spot an a**hole, an authoritarian who will end free society. It’s no good getting distracted by this or that asshole’s style or platform. We need to be able to spot a**holes from any corner no matter how they’re camouflaged. We need to be able to recognize essence of a**hole.

Why Trump is a great gift to America

The insanity of the capitalist, buy buy buy! Materialist culture & its soon demise?

image-20150708-31560-1u73o9c“we don’ t need most of this.. and to survive in a very near future, overpopulated world (actually now).. and the now active CLOBAL WARMING.. exponentially IMPOSSiBLE to avoid what is already here.. will any future the young? be able to survive.. and DO anything to at least find a way to survive? i can only say, i hope for their sake..

One voutube post recently says. “…US shoppers spent $21 billion. Photos and videos from all over the country show that stores are set for a busy Black Friday as eager shoppers queued up for the start of this year’s sales. The huge customer spend comes despite stores opening hours early on Thursday to encourage shoppers with huge Thanksgiving deals. …”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=je3yT1zeMVs

Every year, down through at least the last decade…the scenes at Walmart’s , Target, formerly Toyz R us.. etc… have shown us the shear insanity of commercialism. The intent of corporate  influence and advertising /brainwashing, essentially manipulation, & Propaganda on a major scale, … dating back to certain the 1920s and before… Mostly responsible in the U.S. by Sigmund Freud’s nephew,  Edward Bernays, who also helped the War effort (propagandizing the wars of the US… and ever on…)….starting with WWI, and the Presidency of  Woodrow Wilson.
So much propaganda.. (call it what you like, you know its there)… we cannot at this time and in this critical environment… expect  anything, but it all getting worse..

HOPE?  discuss.

 

Holidays in the era of fear , Climate chaos lack of action and Constitutional crisis.

Trump and former ‘fascist’, the Alt right, etc.

1- The Climate disaster coming, (already here, and unstoppable)…”
What does adaptation mean? In the broadest sense, it means thinking differently about where we live, how we live, what we eat, how we travel. More specifically, it means things like adapting coastal cities to rising seas by rethinking the boundary between land and sea and enacting policies that encourage retreat from low-lying areas, raising taxes to fund infrastructure improvements, reforming flood insurance, changing zoning laws to prevent building in wildfire zones, and perhaps most important, fighting to be sure that the billions of dollars that are sure to flow into climate adaptation projects aren’t focused on protecting the rich. Climate adaptation is already a profound social justice issue, and the division between the saved and the doomed is likely to grow as climate impacts increase.” – https://www.rollingstone.com/politics/politics-news/can-earth-survive-climate-change-735067/

2- The Constitutional  crisis.. some had thought would never happen, is here also, and upon us.. Many in America, see this, wether they are, voters who never were ‘acitivist’ before are rising up. Another, second reaction is the recent, though not sufficient? election, or near challenge of Progressives nationwide who realize the above fact. One of many current reports promoting this as truth..-https://www.commondreams.org/views/2018/11/20/are-we-about-face-our-gravest-constitutional-crisis

3-  The Internional political , Fascist historical crisis that has risen its head again. Should we hope, should we carry on like nothing is wrong, do nothing? I think the examples of Germany, Italy, Japan in the era before WWII, are the greatest example of where we are. The popularity , again, of Books like ‘ 1984’, Sinclair Lewis’s ‘IT CAN’T HAPPEN HERE’ and many others, show the fear in our populace.. And its worldwide, in nations, like Germany, Hungary, etc.. even showing its ugly head in recent elections in France, the UK, Italy and so many more.. 

SHOULD WE CARRY ON? WELL, WE HAVE TO, OR GIVE UP AND HIDE IN AN OBSCURE LOCATION, WAITING FOR THE END. SOME ARE DOING THIS.

I OFFER NO SUGGESTIONS, EXCEPT THAT EVERYONE EDUCATE THEMSELVES, TAKE NOTICE, QUESTION ALL GOVERNMENT, EVEN THE REGULAR (FAKE?) NEWS SOURCES, FIND YOUR OWN SOURCES OF RELIABLE SOURCES.

WHEN OUR OWN PRESIDENT (UGH) USES PAST ISOLATIONIST, OR WORSE, RACIST, XENOPHOBIC, PHRASES, USED BY WHITE SUPREMACISTS, (YES, THE HERO OF THE EARLY 193OS , LINDBURGH, NAZI SYMPATHIZER).. “AMERICA FIRST’, ‘ I AM A POPULIST’ , AND MORE, HE ECHOS THE AUTHORITARIAN, FASCIST CONCEPTS AND ACTIONS OF THE PAST THAT LED TO OUR WORSE DISASTER IN HISTORY. AMERICA,

UNFORTUNATELY, HAS GREAT SWAY IN THE NATIONS OF THE WORLD, AND INTERNATIONAL CORPORATE ‘MASTERS’ SUPPORT THIS 

DISASTERS OF ONE  KIND OR ANOTHER FACE US. WHAT TO DO? I AM NOT AN ALARMIST, I AM A ‘REALIST’…  I HAVE TO SAY IT AS IT IS.

Las Vegas shooting survivor killed in California bar during attack. Are shooters ‘terrorists’?

GUNMAN, VETERANS OR NOT, ARE TERRORISING AMERICANS, THUS THEY ARE TERRORISTS..

My only addition to this is that they often suffer ‘PTSD’ from our MILITARY system..

Newest TERRORIST..Thats what they are… vets or not.., supposedly suffered PTSD.. I have it myself and I know I would be dead today, had i knew how to use a gun and had one. I have some sympathy for him in that respect, and the Goverment our guns Policy, guns, Miltary class guns available, a SHAME upon us …for allowing thing, SHAME UPON US for continuous WAR, affecting millions of INNOCENT people, women and children worldwide and thousands of our own veterans, who lose control as they succumed to the SICK MILITARY THEORISTS and told to shut up, do what YOU ARE TOLD.. I protested ALL wars, years against the VIETNAM war.
As long as we TEACH PEOPLE TO KILL AND PROVIDE THEM WITH THE MEANS TO DO SO, in the military and otherwise, WE ARE IN DANGER.
As the mother of a victim just said, in the latest, WEEKLY terrorist KILLING…

“His mother demanded gun control when she spoke to the Las Vegas Review-Journal on Thursday, not long after learning her son had been killed.
“Print that in the largest letters you can. Can you do that for me?” Susan Orfanos shouted, her voice cracking. “If one more person sends me thoughts or prayers. We have lost too many kids. I want gun control. That’s all I have to say.”
