MAGA – back to what?

What are we returning to and why? Genetically there is only one race: human. Darker skin from staying in the tropics, lighter skin and hair and eyes, from traveling to northern reaches with little sun. Essentially no difference. Blacks stupider and more sexual, a myth used to keep them in their places.

Why do we want to separate ourselves into those who have more and those who have less? Think of where this county came from, the thing we are reaching for again. Oh yes. Kill the Indians who claim land ownership so that those with weapons can take it. Kill those who resist and stand in our way.

Women, into the kitchen as servant to her man; having and raising children. Cooking and cleaning. It shocks to hear women saying that is their rightful place. Who wrote the bible anyway that says such things. Men of course claiming it to be a dictate of god. Whose god? What kind of god?

The so-called inferior blacks. The very white standing at the top of the hill need slaves. The western bibles hated the dark man too. The rejected people now serve in prisons. They work for a couple of dollars a day, rented to outside corporations, a new kind of slavery and little more. Those who created prisons have taken away job training.  Make the pay for whatever crime they committed because they were enraged by having so little, or didn’t commit at all but where are the well-trained lawyers to defend them. Corporations make more when their workers are incarcerated = slaves.

So we have as we had, a nation founded on take it. And it still takes it. There are wars for natural resources. There are wars to fund the people who make and sell and rent the war machinery. There are wars for money and power. Just like it was then.

And we allow it because we believe the war stimulating stories we are pounded with from radio, TV, internet, about how some nation threatens us; A nation that wreaks havoc so that a tiny minority at the top can profit. For the sake of having a real and true identity, of helping all people and animals and plant life survive,  for having air we can breathe and water we an drink we do not need MAGA. Return to the future by supporting life now.

    The Art of Distraction

 

The Republicans have a clown, a man from 3 generations of fraud making outrageous statements, engaging in all kinds of antisocial actions: sexual attacks of women, misogyny, theft, grandiose statements that are false and on and on.

What is the benefit of such a leader? We are horrified as our attention is drawn to yet another transgression. The far-right religious group declares him to be an immature Christian or another form of God to be worshiped); moved to overlook and forget the facts. They overlook a total reversal of his pre-election promises to give them support, health care, jobs. They forget the enormous tax breaks given to the rich, money that would have pad for what he promised. Drawn by our horror over his breaking societal rules, we don’t notice  placement of a flood of judges that will support environmental destruction, put the lower screwed class in jail for almost anything which makes money for prison owners.

What is the clown of distraction for the Democrats who do not do a single thing to reverse the current direction of our government giving it all to the rich while complaining about it, of course? It is the Mueller report being indecisive about whether Trump was aided by the Russians to win the election. The decision about obstruction is left to the senators. They scream about seeing a redacted version. Of course, they should see it all. But there is a lot more going on in addition to Mueller.

Why do they fixate on this report and not upon what 45 is doing to our country from which it will likely never recover? While this compelling circus of the Mueller’s report is going on, 45 fills the pockets of the rich by supporting extractive attacks on the environment. oil pipes and gas pipes are drilled to carry oil and gas, pipes which contaminate the water with endless spills, pollution is dumped into rivers and oceans, Obama’s restrictions are undone. Forest fires spread as a result of carbon burning drought. Islands stink beneath the waves. Coral dries and dies, killing all the living things that live on and among it.

We do not notice because our mind is on the Mueller report. We do not notice because we watch the  clown in office.  And when he is gone, what he has done will remain.

  Lying

 

We live in an era of the lie. “45” started lying from his early years, part of the family way of financially getting ahead fast. Woodie Guthrie, the great song writer lived in one of his Dad’s apartments and wrote a song about their cheating tenants. It was and is a family tradition with all the construction workers barely or totally unpaid. Also, undocumented immigrants working for various “45”-establishements.

So, fraud is in the air. Politicians whom we childishly regard as highly developed moral folk, are given money by corporations to create bills or sign corporate created bills which support the corporation. Why are so willingly taken in? Why the national regression to childish trust? The papers we read often polish our acquiescence. Papers are owned by corporations and make their money via corporate sales, not much from readers.

We are told by commercial adds and corporate owned newspapers and internet and tv programs, that those who question lying politicians are socialists or some other negative name. We swallow it all, act like children with protective parents which they definitely-are not.

And what does our own lying do to us? It makes us false in our own eyes. The more we lie the worse we feel…. and then the more we lie. Lying makes us feel inadequate so then we lie some more. The more we lie the more we think we need to lie as if stating the truth it will destroy us. It is like covering burning coals with straw which also will soon be aflame, so we add more straw.

The more we lie to one another, the less the trust them. It is self-referential sequence, thinking that they hate us because we hate ourselves. Pretty soon we adrift in a mass of liars who see everyone as their enemy. Lying creates isolation which makes us more susceptible to a lying government we see as parent. They lie about immanent threat to take whatever money we are holding on to. Lying makes us susceptible and weak. Lying takes away our common sense.

Solution. Tell the truth to everyone. Know a lie when you hear it and say that is not truthful. Do not settle for a paranoid solution, you and I back to back against them. Truth and love are the same. Do you want to love and be loved? Be real.

The Government Shutdown is Not About a Wall

There are those who believe in speeches. We should not fall for words. Words have many purposes, often to convince us to believe in lies. There are those who believe 45’s projection of violence, rape and drugs by southern immigrants. They fall for something without a drop of evidence. Some of these people donate money to build the wall.

If you want to learn the meaning behind a request, look at what is used to convince you. Does the request greatly threaten you? Is your idealization and belief manufactured by it? Is it like a kidnapping where you fall in love with the person who abducts you? That is call the Stockholm Syndrome. You fall in love with your captor in hope that love will keep him from murdering you.

Shutting down government is like a kidnapping that is spreading like a plague. People who examine luggage in air ports are unpaid and often call in sick; workers, did not stop a man from walking by them with a gun. Sea rangers, national park rangers are not there to take out the garbage and guard trees; so many people without food stamps, without money to pay the rent, car insurance, mortgages, losing their houses, medical care, survival.

This presidential withholding of Federal assistance is no coincidence. Those who say that “45” has no idea of how Federal money is used are right and wrong. He may not know the details but he knows how to make demands.

You know how “45” loves tyrants like Putin in Russia and Duterte in the Philippines who has vowed to kill everyone connected with the drug trade and everyone else who opposes him. Trump sees goodness in who those who suck the wealth into their own pockets and kill to get things done.

And 5 billion is only a starter. The wall will cost must more to cover the area  and of course will be ineffective. It is not hard to dig a tunnel. Only the animals seeking a larger area to find food and sexual partners to spread and strengthen the herd, these will perish. Drug dealers do not march to the US across deserts. They come in planes and trucks.

The immigrants come from communities where death is visiting in the hands of drug dealers demanding money, membership or both; they come from, communities where US vegetable factory farms, supported by Congress, under price the local farmers and put them out of business. Few raise corn in Mexico now. Who can afford to make tortillas. Do we know this?

The US, our government is creating hordes of terrified and starving people who come to our borders, particularly to save their children. Our corporate supported elected officials keep silent and will not vote to end the government shutdown. Mitch McConnell will not do it. How do we react to official paralysis, fear and greed? The French “Yellow Jackets” are in the street about being out priced and overlooked. They outnumber the police and are ever growing numbers. The Prime Minister is worried.

Beset by government shut down, are we US citizens, merely going to sit home, hold our breath and pray?

 

The Need to Destroy

Do you ever ask why we humans are driven to destroy all that lives which includes ourselves?

Why did President Trump make it OK to kill baby wolves during their winter hibernation in a den with Mommy

Does killing make a bully strong?

Our government gets its impoverished citizens to harvest coal, gas, oil..

We use the energy of harvested carbon products and watch the world heat up. 12 years given to turn things around folks before no change is possible.

Our forests burn along with houses. Our cities flood. Our crops die in emerging deserts.

We do not blame ourselves for it.

Trump and his associates want to reduce the size of the national parks in order to dig for coal and gas and oil.

It’s all about money and power.

Perhaps those in charge have already died except for their banking minds which still walk and talk and imprison blacks for minor crimes and play golf,

Now that so many white millionaires are going to jail, they are working to limit jail time.

Why do we hate people who are different from us, race, sex, religion, sexual orientation?

Why do we choose death for the many rather than life for all?

Does the idea of scarcity destroy us?

Is ownership the religion of death?

Keep off my property before I shoot you.

The greater our fear the more we kill.

I kill you to deny that I will die.

Is violence our road to heaven?

Does God wear a gun?

Are we sane?

Take It While You Can

Trump believes in global warming. That’s why he is asking Ireland to put a fence around his golf course. The so-called leaders, almost all in the pockets of corporations, claim not to believe but that largely is a lie. The truth of the matter was recently shown by the government’s willingness to allow cars to pollute even more than they do now because they accept that we are fated to set the world on fire so that nothing can survive. To turn away from burning carbon, i.e. oil, means losing money from the corporations in which they are invested.  Instead they decide to make as much money NOW  as is possible from their carbon investments. Death is shoved to a dark corner of their minds.

In like manner, they want to dig for oil in the Arctic.  This will kill innumerable animals including ourselves.  They do not believe in switching to green power, living creatively and scientifically and simply in a surviving world. They need to own or buy an endless supply of everything. Better to sacrifice the world to have it now.

This is the most dangerous bunch of so-called leaders the world has ever known.  Hitler would kill all the Jews and gypsies. Our current group of tyrants will sacrifice all life. They are willing to sacrifice the future to continue living as they do. Sacrifice is not in their vocabulary. Having it all rules the day.

This is insanity. See the danger that lies ahead and  ignore it. Increase your dangerous actions to take more of what remains. Malign those traveling towards our border in quest of  safety, food, a place to stay, medicine, for their sick children, The President labels these immigrants invaders and denies what the US has done to make their country unlivable. Throwing a stone towards imaginary dangers distracts us from seeing that they are taking money from our social services. Guns are sold almost everywhere so that the desperate ones can kill fellow sufferers whom they incorrectly blame for their suffering.

A man kills women in a yoga class. He has long hated women. A man kills Jews in a synagogue. He blames Jews for his lack of money.  A man shoots blacks in a supermarket after being unable to break into a black church. The un-cared for population is stimulated to attack similarly impoverished people. Violence is revved up against the impoverished by the super rich whose hand is in the till.

Death for all awaits us if we vote for people who are unwilling to change our economy and life to green.  Don’t turn against your neighbor. Hold hands and plan for a good-for-all economy. We can do it.
