2/24-26 Weekend News Roundup and Open Thread The Progressive Wing Posted on February 24, 2023 by jcityboneFebruary 24, 2023 Let’s start with some reviews of Bernie’s new book.
Our downtown library doesn’t have it yet. But, it does carry Bernie’s other reads so I’ll check back later. 🙂
I just got in my kindle account on Thursday. If going to your local library, I would check back in 2 weeks because it likely needs to be cataloged first and readied for circulation (check-out).
Were in a period unprecedented greed in world history. This greed at any cost period were in makes the robber barron era look like a sunday social at your local church. These craprate overlords knbow they casn do as they please as they’ve bought off the proper congresscritters so thier wont be any investigations the stick for price gouging.
The usual negative psycho-linguistical/propaganda crap from Bezos’ WAPO. First, get rid of the Fascist Raygun cap. Start taxing a bunch of parasitic billionaires who have been hanging out here cos it’s cheap, and they’ve got the legal bribe scam narrowed down to a science. Ole Raygun was elected in a carefully plotted out campaign that started dumbing down education, and really pushing the Religious Right BS. Give those steps serious teeth as in enforcement. Then, watch the results. This is not rocket science; it’s just righting a wrong.
Has (or will?) the govt ever paid back the money they were borrowing from Social Security during the Bush administration?
implementation of Bernies plan and the govt returns what Bush “Borrowed” SS and Medicare will be just fine.
Get this piece of crap outside his carefully crafted media bubble and into a national campaign spotlight. He goes against the Orange Turd. Watch the results.
T and R x 3, jcb!! 🙂
Biden Gets His First 2024 Primary Opponent As Marianne Williamson Confirms She Will Run Again
Offered without comment.
At least it’s a start, regardless of her merits (or lack of). Thanks, Aint. 🙂 Saw SloMoJoe on the evening infotainment last night. He’s being propped up by meds and carefully rehearsed. No way will I vote for him.
Honestly i thought he’d be gone by now, just an example of getting the best health care on the planet that 99% of wish we could get but we pay for it…
I didn’t vote for SloMoJoe either in 2020. And I didn’t vote for Hillary in 2016. Williamson is not under consideration by me for 2024 but if she makes it through the democratic primaries, I’d probably vote for her.
In 10 days, the number of dead aquatic animals found near the Ohio train derailment jumped from 3,500 to over 43,000
Why do the idiots in towns like these keep cutting off their economic noses to spite their faces?????????? I’m talking voting for GOPukes over and over. Heck, give me one qualification that yahoo J.D. Vance has? One? Yet, he’s the duly elected U.S. junior Senator from OH. 🙁
Must be something in the water, well now thier is…
A land version of the gulf of Mexico disaster. Still a yuge dead zone out their.
Yeah, reminds me of the BP Spill in 2010.
Live tweets from the event by Erin Brockovich
This will bite Biden but maybe he thinks OH will continue to vote red. He’s not going to get much from Buttigieg nor Mike DeWine’s office.
There is also another reason, and Byedone is right. Consider all the massive headaches with security and logistics a POTUS visit entails. This town desperately needs cleanup, not BS like that stunt the Orange Turd pulled. Of course, so does Flint, MI, Jackson, MS, etc.
The R’s and faux news would claim a PR stunt at this point.
Wish Erin would run for POTUS. Hey, if the Orange Turd can do it, anyone can.
She and Williamson would make a bang up pair!
I like them both, but I wouldn’t vote for either one of them. You have to have some understanding of foreign policy other than “let’s not make war.”
Well, we’ve tried war is the answer and the devastation to the world and humanity is off the charts. I’m ready for give peace a chance. Although neither of these candidates would be my first choice.
Illinois-based Akorn announces sudden closure, layoffs, prompting state investigation
Either the CEO was threatened or else he was a douchebag.
Probably both. The worker ripoffs have really gotten way, way out of hand in this country!! White-collar bizness butts need to hauled into real jails.
Look at all the young faces, too. 🙂
War-making and supplying the MICC monster are the biggest employers in this country. THAT needs to be addressed, too!
Ive long advocated for a space based economy along with the R&D that would go with it. Unfortunately were still locked into our primative war based one, Someday we’ll grow up before we self destruct i hope?
+270, fellow Futurist! 🪐👍
What’s a space based economy?
He’s talking about the ☮️ful exploration of space, and all the benefits that come from it. A classic example is laser technology and the medical advances from that alone. For every taxpayer $ that has been put into NASA, the positive benefits have been incredible. I’m talking 50 years ago.
Just a short list of things
Pennies on the dollar and it will be written off on the craprate taxes so no real harm to them.
Bernie in London, full booktalk event.
He needs to get his arse down here! 🙂
Penguin, his publisher, sets the schedule to accommodate him. I hope he got a visit in with Larry, his brother.
Glad to they got to meet.
I liked Bernie’s comment.
