Don midwest commented on the post, Liuba Grechen Shirley – “This Is What Democracy Looks Like” 1 hour, 46 minutes ago

yesterday there was a piece, as I recall on democracynow, on how they took back the public schools and changed local government in Phlly
as a Bruno Latour fan, I keep going back to his work
I have probably posted this one…[Read more]
Will increasing disaster force climate action?
As regulars know, I am a fan of Bruno Latour.
From his book published a couple of months ago in English, “Facing Gaia: 8 lectures on the new climate regime”
references a book that says that in the last year of WWII, everyone in Germany knew they were going to loose the war, but…[Read more]
a 3 minute video and referred back to Jessie Jackson in 1988 as “the moment”
she is full of it
the moment is now
neo liberalism has failed but DNC and dems holding onto money and power
not open to the future
so it will take fighting against the dems
and the dems think that they will hold out or morph into something…[Read more]
Hope it is Jordan next, but then, I don’t know about his situation but hope that it is not that bad
We know right wingers don’t care about children, but when will this force them to respond?
Air pollution harm to unborn babies may be global health catastrophe, warn doctors
New UK research links toxic air to low birth weight that can cause lifelong damage to health, raising fears that millions of babies worldwide are being harmed
Juan Cole web site excellent articles this morning
Articles by others
I don’t think it burned down, but it was burned. Probably used some private fire fighting services as well (rich have own police, fire, etc)
Yes, and Jeremy Scahill is the co author of the article. His first book was on Blackwater and his second book was on Dirty Wars, 2013, so he has been a bird dog on Prince for years.
I picked up his blackwater book and on the flyleaf it quotes Voltaire
It is forbidden to kill, therefore murderers are punished unless they kill in large…
what could go wrong?
war with the earth
government as a control system
make government smaller but still big enough to control the people to protect the wealthy and corporations
what a tale we weave when we are protecting the powerful and feathering our own nest
Can Trump hold out against sex allegations?
The Guardian is keeping an ongoing story about the allegations. As more prominent people fall by the wayside, it will be harder for the lies to hold up.
I recall years ago when Glenn Greenwald posted a get together on one of McCain’s properties in NM or AZ.
Journalists swinging on tire swings and hanging out together
Celebration of ass kissing journalists
And no shame of journalists
Just another step where billionaires, corporations, banksters, politicians, etc, owners of the world are…[Read more]
well done again, and again, and again
again, and again, and again
what if, what if, what if
Bernie had this kind of coverage during the primary elections
rather than a black out by the corporate media
and now that the country is going down the drain we see Bernie more and more in the news
and a few other democrats
and some stations are benefiting from the…[Read more]
Maybe Trump cannot totally take over the courts in time for the energy companies to continue their rape of the earth
well, I am over the line to say “rape” which has a sexual meaning
this photo essay may have been posted on this blog yesterday, but in case you didn’t see it
it sure shows ruins in the mining to get the tar sands in…[Read more]
come on, they are only worried about PR on the spills
they want the money and to hell with the earth
But it is hard to support genocide for ever.
And who cares about Indigenous people? Wipe them out!!!
Those people who wander around living with the Earth, they are an affront to modernity! Wipe them out!
But, but, we are all going to be living in the ruins so the Bedouins could be useful for the future.
But in the mean…[Read more]
David Dayen has been doing very good work. I subscribe to his email which comes out once or twice per week. It links to his articles and other articles as well.
This article shows how far down the rabbit hole the democratic party has fallen. They have not had a strong position on income inequality and this tax bill will make it worse. (It was…[Read more]
What is realty?
A trade off between economy and environment.
Black and white.
And with time on a linear scale from the old days in the past to the future, either you are on the train, or you are in the way.
What about the end of time?
So the question is: are we before it, in it, or has it already happened?
Obvious point: what if Bernie had coverage when he was running?
I recall that CNN spent more time with an empty podium without Trump than he spend on the entire Bernie campaign.
I also recall that CNN boasted that the elections was a windfall for their revenue.
And the networks love a Ultimate Crazy Fight with no holds…[Read more]
