    Republicans don’t mind when presidents act like monarchs when making war, but when it comes to domestic policy and climate change…

    The approval ratings of the President and of Congress follow similar although more starkly negative trends. The Democratic Party no longer represents the people’s best interests, and this president has set the example of betrayal in nearly all of his policy decisions.

    So why doesn’t the city (and all cities, for that matter) step up and provide Porta Potties for ALL the homeless and disenfranchised people? I have made that suggestion to two different city governments in my area, and all they can say is, “we don’t have the funding, and it’s not that easy.” It could [...]

  • To my mind, in the bigger picture the Republican win will actually be beneficial, in that it will hasten the collapse of the U.S. Empire and its destructive capitalist impacts on humanity and the ecosystem. The Democrats are doing the same thing by default. Politics is pretty much irrelevant any more, as we continue to slide into the abyss.

    A lot of voters must be thinking that if they give up more assets to the wealthy, the economy will eventually start trickling down.

  • Dissenters are being marked, surveilled, scrutinized, followed, and stifled, while the war criminals are well protected and free to spout their propaganda and lies. This regime is not as bad as the one in North Korea, but it’s headed in that direction.

    The old gripe of “tax and spend” Democrats is not only equally applicable to Republicans, but it begs the question of: tax whom and spend on what? It’s the military and wars that are driving this empire to the brink. That is where the cuts need to be made first, along with stopping the wars [...]

    That is very colorful (and smelly), but how about elaborating on what you mean by “distracting the public from the real issues” — as if this heightened surveillance is not one of them?

    Addendum: These left-wing critics point to the in-fighting between the CIA and the NSA agencies as being part of the motivation for the Snowden caper, but that the CIA’s Snowden plot was sanctioned by TPTB.

    Excellent review. I think there is a third category (I am not one of them): the left-wing critics like Jon Rappoport who think Snowden is continuing in his role as CIA agent in a deliberate plot to release all that information in order to create a false narrative of hero/traitor which the public may take sides on in public debate which won’t make any difference in how the NSA and its counterparts elsewhere operate. They say nothing new has been revealed that we didn’t know before, and this will serve to discipline the public into “self policing,” since TPTB know they can’t control the masses merely by coercion or punitive measures. They think the process of review and redaction by the major media outlets was suspect because if Glenn Greenwald and Laura Poitras were true whistleblowers, they would have summarily dumped the files onto a website instead. They go on to equate Snowden’s asylum in Russia with a luxurious vacation, and they think Greenwald and Poitras have been duped. They note that none of the protagonists has gone to jail, even though the CIA could supposedly get at them quite easily. Again, this is not my opinion.

    There are many facets to this subject, which need to be dealt with across the spectrum of domestic and foreign policy, public education, urban renewal, and uniform standards of police training. Unfortunately, human needs and dignity are being ignored and degraded by TPTB as extreme inequality accelerates and the permanent pursuit of war is tolerated. [...]

    The shadow government is the result of a highly organized corporate coup that has been achieved through the influence of vast amounts of money in an era when materialistic self interst is the dominant ethos of society. It is basically a crime syndicate that deals in arms, drugs, human exploitation and trafficking, and wholesale extortion. [...]

    The police hierarchy and fraternity always protect their own, so even if there’s a suspicion of abuse or crime by an officer, he/she is presumed innocent by virtue of assumed threat of harm by an “assailant” and therefore the officer is not treated as a suspect. That means the officer could easily set up the [...]

  • This correction needs to go much further. ALL persons placed on the list must be immediately discreetly informed of the reason (including evidence presented by the Govt) and be given a means of redress at no cost (no requirement to hire an attorney). Those who have been wrongly prevented from traveling deserve to be compensated for their inconvenience and/or losses.

    Indeed, humanity is accelerating toward obsolescence (extinction). If we have any hope of surviving, we will have to adopt de-growth anti-capitalist economic goals; and technological advances will have to be justified on the basis of benefits to the many weighed against detriments to the planet. Any new OS will have to operate on older upgradable [...]

  • I can hardly wait for TEPCO to emblazon pink ribbons on the Tyvek facades covering their melted-through reactor buildings at Fukushima Daiichi, as a reward for contributing to Komen. General Electric can claim the same fame, having designed those known-to-be-faulty Mark I reactors. Cancer and other diseases are going to skyrocket as a result of that crime against humanity and all life on earth.
