The United States Is Now as Unequal as Russia. And That’s Before the Tax Bill.

Down below I have this report posted but without the comparison. To be equal with Russia is definitely degrading. On other pages I question if trump isn’t a russian operative. Seems so to me. along with the GOP.

Bernie Sanders: Trump tax cuts a barely disguised reward for billionaire donors

The Guardian is doing it right. Where is the American Press? MIA, they are missing in action. I have seen very little reporting on the Special Rapporteurs’ visit and what it means or what the results are of his findings. I understand the press being afraid of blow-back but that comes with the job folks. If the public isn’t informed, then they don’t know and very evil things happen in the dead of night in smoke filled rooms. This is Evil. This dismantling of America is Evil. I fear the costs involved.

This new report confirms that Trump’s megalomania threatens our democracy

Single party rule with a mad-man at the wheel has never worked. It will take a decade or more to heal from the wounds this has done to our Republic. There are seeds of change in the air but they are being blown about by the ever present danger of more damage done on a daily basis. Our society is being torn apart for no reason other than a person that cannot see past the mirror. Governance is a tough rough and tumble game unless you are the only one in the mirror. How sad it is that the right, far-right and the alt-right cannot or refuse to acknowledge their destructive behavior.

Inequality is not inevitable – but the US ‘experiment’ is a recipe for divergence

The first link is for this article, the second link is to the group that wrote the article. At a quick glance through the groups website, their work and the results show to me that Roony Raygun is responsible for our current inequities. Reaganomics, trickle-down ideas have made a rolling-wreck of our economics and this train wreck is a hyper-speed now in the Senate where it will get even more fuel to burn-out our country. The graphs and info point out that the top .001% income grew by over 260% since the early 80’s. Think about that for just one minute, 260%. What percentage do you pay on a credit card? How much is paid to you on a savings account? Over 260% is stealing, robbery, thievery and it isn’t just money. Look at our infrastructure, it is collapsing down around us, as one example. I t has created a 3rd world country out of America. Which means we cannot be prepared for global warming/climate change. Just look at what as happened to those states hit with the last round of hurricanes, TX, FL and the islands. We have a housing shortage across the country as well. 260% has cost our country being able to move into the 21 century comfortably. It has laid waste to America. Here is the report if you don’t want to visit the site.

Basic income to be given to 84,000 people in Canada

Move is part of $3bn anti-poverty action plan

The comments are quite expansive, very informative. This is of course something I am in agreement with, fighting poverty. Trying to solve one of the hardest issues of any country, here is a country trying. We in America know why it isn’t being done here. We hate the poor and are fighting a war against them hoping they will just roll-over and die. Canada’s cost of living is pretty close to ours so imagine the change in my life living at slightly more than $13,000.00 a year. Or those on SSI which can be as low as $300.00 a month. I haven’t a clue what “disposable income is”, there was a time when I did. Many many years ago, decades. We do need to incorporate the Second Bill of Rights proposed by FDR and have a minimum standard of living or basic income. Years ago I watched Bernie Sanders filibuster the Senate on what expanding Social Security would do for the health, welfare and economy of America. I was very impressed. It was when I started to follow his political life. I think it was 2 or 3 year before he decided to run for President. So from 1944 to today we have been fighting for a war on poverty and yet greed can not be overcome. Why?

Civil unrest is sure to follow, it is my hope that it doesn’t become violent but it will. People of all stripes and colors are fed-up. If the FCC deregulates freedom of speech it destroys hundreds of years of being a democratic republic. This site and my opinions will be placed in a very slow lane and most likely will be censored even further. That is just me, what about the fringe news and views sites? The science sites? The whatever is in disagreement with any view sites, whether it be vacuum cleaners or politics. There will be only one view and that is what your ISP thinks who is told by its shareholders and the guvmint.

This scenario plays out with many facets of our lives. Kick back, put your feet up and think, where else are these things taking place? Then apply this to every cabinet post of our government. The EPA, the Dept. of ED and on and on and on. This is a revolt taking place that is undermining the structure of our society through the whole spectrum. MORDOR is in control.

Behind Trump’s plan to target the federal safety net

Under the banner of welfare reform, the administration is eyeing changes to health care, food stamps, housing and veterans programs.

What Congress cannot or will not do, the President is using the executive order to undo generations of rules and laws to help the poor in this country. This is a war against the poor. It is a crime to be poor in America. When Bush 2 was running against Gore I watched him, sitting in van with the side door open, state that it was his intent to undo everything FDR did. To destroy the New Deal. This is the final stages of the wacko-right destroying The New Deal. By supporting Trump, Republicans and Christian Far-Right the greed of the capitalists is in full control of America, no matter the costs. It will cost human life, the economy and jobs. It is un-American. It is immoral. It is unethical. It is insane. It is cruel. It is mean. Capitalists care about one thing only, money. They care not for human life or human suffering. To put it another way, in order for you to have more than what you need, to get what you want. Someone does with less or without. This is an odd form of violence against our fellow citizens. FDR proved it doesn’t have to be this way.

Who are the poor Americans?

I know, it’s nothing new but for it to be reported on the front page of the BBC it is eye-opening to the world that 41 million Americans are poor. Over 20 million of us are the disabled, me included. People across the globe don’t understand that we, the disabled, are throw-a-ways just like a plastic cup at a BBQ. There is another report about a woman living by eating dog food and another report about people in the 80-90’s being evicted, out on the street due to no fault of their own. Elsewhere on this site I have a page devoted to being disposed of and it is an ugly thing to address. No one wants to talk about it. Let alone to someone who has to live this way. Nor is there any charity of a person to person kind. It is more of, “I give at church” or “I donate at work”, never is it hey what do you need. Instead we are faced with begging, pleading for help and competing for what crumbs there are from a charity or NGO. Personally, my self-image is almost nonexistent. I hate myself for being unable to live up to everyone else’s standards and looked down on as a loser.

Instead of real help this is what we get, we get empty prayers which don’t fill the tummy or pay the rent or keep the heat on in the winter…keep praying for us fellow citizens, keep praying

The surprising factors driving murder rates: income inequality and respect

“The rise of Trump shows that “inequality has a real tangible effect on voter behavior, just not necessarily what you’d expect”, says the Stanford historian Walter Scheidel, the author of The Great Leveler: Violence and the History of Inequality from the Stone Age to the Twenty-First Century. Scheidel’s book shows that historically, the only way high inequality has been flattened has been through catastrophe: disease, famine, world war, societal collapse or communist revolution.”

Inequality, poverty is un-american, unconstitutional and at best the way to destroy a nation. The GOP is an internal threat to our Republic and it’s democratic institutions. This is Treasonistic by nature. It is an internal war waged by money with gun violence as the end result. Of the corrections listed I look forward to a world war, societal collapse or revolution. Contributing factors are, global warming/climate change, climate refugees and famine as we lock ourselves away from the rest of the globe. The world war would be waged against us, not us against someone else. The collapse of society is most likely because of the income inequality, religious intolerance, political animosities and racial divide. The roll of the NRA cannot be under-stated. Gun advocates would rather kill than give Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness a reasonable debate. Thus, America was killed by itself through self inflicted gun shot wounds. National suicide.

Closing out the day with this and I am finding very odd that I have to out of the country to get the real news of what is in America. Very odd indeed.

Trump’s mental state a ‘danger to us all’, warns leading forensic psychiatrist

‘Patterns indicate the need for an urgent evaluation,’ says Yale expert

Way back in October, it seems so long ago, I called on trumps family to have him evaluated. Only they can legally do anything to help him. He cannot help himself and the country cannot do to him. It is up to his family but as I noted before they appear wooden when with him or in public. I feel they have Stockholm Syndrome. For the good of the country and the world I would hope this takes place but it won’t and I know it. We are faced with a man in charge of the worlds best armed military that does not have 2 feet on the ground. Maybe not even one considering the actions he has taken to undermine our Republic and its democratic institutions. Our shared future is bleak with such a mind in the position it is in. Yes, it would be very hard to place him under involuntary evaluation, there is much to lose but his family actually has much to gain from it. If it is done then they have the chance of being hero’s instead of cowards only in it for the money.

Just a little war-on-the-poor. The culture war on the poor to me personal. It is attacking me in many was, from my government and how people see me as a person. I find it very hard to believe that in this so-called christian nation during it’s high holiday season to be attacking the poor. Conclusion, this ain’t no christian nation, nor is it American. There is a lot of focus on the budget and tax bills, and rightly so, but the attacks coming from the media are worse in that they seep into everyone’s home via the t.v. and the internet. With net neutrality under attack it appears the media machine is converting to the mouth-piece of Fascism to the extreme. None of this makes any rational sense. I truly believe that a war on poverty should be declared and the Second Bill of Rights as spelled out by FDR should become the norm. Inclusion. Here are few samples for your reading pleasure via Media Matters.

This pic shows the Vermillion Cliffs were the Condor’s fly. One of the most amazing places on the planet, it makes you feel very small indeed. At the beginning of the cliffs is Marble Canyon, where the Gods play with marbles the size of skyscrapers and the road leads down to the Colorado River where the water is crystal clear and very cold. There is a little community there along the hwy, I’d love to live there but my health won’t let me. This is a must visit place for everyone. I haven’t been on the Utah side of things, just passed through a few times but it so big and bold you feel it to be a Holy Place, a Home of The Gods.

Republicans are bringing ‘welfare queen’ politics to the tax cut fight

Mulvaney says Social Security Disability Insurance is “welfare”. Under the Constitution the President is to provide for the general welfare of the nation. This whole thing stinks of theft, thievery, stealing, which is a crime. Do you pay into Social Security and Medicare? Of course you do, everyone does. It is your savings account for retirement and Insurance should you become disabled, as I did. As a kid, my Mother received Survivors Insurance for myself and my 2 brothers after my Father died at the age of 41. She received that money until I was 18. This is Insurance and for them to say it’s welfare as if my Mother was a welfare queen is disgusting. It is the formal governmental attack against the poor. They want people dying in the streets. Retired, disabled, single parents and the working poor. This goes against everything the christian faith is based on but you can bet your bottom dollar they claim to be christians. Again, if you are a republican you are no friend of mine or Jesus Christ for that matter. Disgusting!!!

As I warned earlier, the social engineering within the tax bill is scary. Thanks go to the parliamentarian of the Senate to get this one get ripped out of this bill. These wacko’s want to give a zygote “personhood” but will not refund the CHIP program, want to gut the safety-net and give billions of more money to the billionaires. WTF is going on? This is insanity. It is insane. Seriously, think about what they are doing, it is crazy, it is insane.

As a side note…scanning the webs news sites I have come to the conclusion that the world has become a fucked-up place to live ever since trump said Obama wasn’t born in the U.S.. This wacko has disrupted everything on the Globe. He must be removed from access to the public and placed in a padded room. Period.

They are programs of insurance that we have paid into. Once again, these people are sick to have dumped over a trillion dollars of debt on our country by way of giving money to the rich and then to cut our own insurance to pay for that debt.

I’m a bit confused. Didn’t the military just get hundreds of billions of dollars? Yet there is no money for social programs? We can have conflicts all over the globe and have our military fighting in what 6 wars for how many years but we cannot fund poor kids health? We just gave the richest of the rich a ton of money but we are going to shut-down the government because there is no money? This circus shell game is pure wacko crazy! I say shut it down. Turn off the lights, close the doors and walk away. The priorities of the country are spelled out in the Constitution quite nicely I think. To provide for the general welfare of the citizens. Yet these are the very things being ripped out of peoples hands. The only thing that gets money without any accounting is the military and what does it do? It kills things and people all over the globe. Shut-it-down! On my front page there is a quote of FDR where he mentions the “rightist reaction”, the right has never been so wrong in America than it is today.

First there was the CHIP program failing due to lack of funding. Then there was this tax scam vote. Now it is an unwelcome X-mas present from America to poor children and their mothers that CHIP funding hasn’t happened yet but we just gave millionaire’s and billionaire’s tons of money to buy great gift’s. Sure, we have all made mistakes that hurt someone. Guilt is a common reaction to this problem. But when a whole group of people acting together hurt those that cannot fight back is sick. It is morally repugnant. I remember something about changing the funding for CHIP to a 5 year re-authorization. Why isn’t something like this permanent?

Bears Ears National Monument

Today it is Bears Ears National Monument under attack. What will it be tomorrow? You look at the photo’s of this area of our country and it looks hard, like it’s a rock and sand. It isn’t, it actually is very fragile. The slightest destructive thing like a wagon trail or primitive road can cause massive erosion. It is beautiful beyond words. When inside a rarely touched place in the southwest you are at once in touch with the sublime, there is grace within the slightest breeze. Personally I have never felt more at home than on the Navajo Reservation near Chinle AZ. I spent my 16th summer there at Rough Rock and I found home. I felt as one with the Earth and I’ve never felt like that again. To open up Bear Ears to exploitation after being fought for, for so long is a disgrace to the land and the many tribes that have lived there for 100’s of years. My Representative in Congress has tried to fight back, has expressed his concerns and that of his constituents, the tribes in his district to no avail. Do we have to fight every little thing out in court? Is there no common sense of dignity? No awareness of others? I thought this was a representative democracy, it isn’t anymore. It is a Fascist State and as noted on my front page, this has to end. America is disappearing right before our very eye’s.

Social engineering and the culture war hidden within the tax bill. Gutting public school funding so the rich can have their school funding for their schools of choice leaves millions of our children without. 50 million children just got thrown under the bus. 50 million. Let that sink in. That is the future of our nation. This is 3rd world stuff, not the wealthiest nation on the planet stuff. Only the rich can have quality teachers, quality buildings to teach in, quality teaching tools and the latest improvements and innovations because that is where all the money ends up. What is left over from the past will stay the same for a very long time for 50 million children. This is stupid beyond dumb. What might it lead too?, Higher crime rates, increased poverty, school to prison as standard life expectancy, increased domestic violence, increased gang activity, basically, all the ills of society we have today but on a grander scale. This is but one example of the social engineering and social/culture warfare hidden within this tax reform. There will be more to discover as the daze progress. I will try and keep up but the depression is already a heavy burden.

Somewhere in this tax reform “thingy” is something about making it okay for churches, charities and such to preach and politic from the pulpit and not lose their tax free lifestyle. It will erode the line between church and state gravely. History has shown that when there is a mingling of church and state the state looses out, the focus is on god and giving money to church instead of paying taxes, and placing god above Law. There once was a time in our country during the colony phase when catholic’s were to be shot on sight. I will not go toe to toe with what these people are about except that it isn’t christian what they are doing and it is against what this nation was founded on. This is yet another erosion of what we once were and if the authoritarian fascist government combines with a warped and demented religion it will be yet one more example of social engineering and class warfare. The flow of money to a church as a donation will be a gift to a charity and not be taxed, someone’s campaign could be run out of a church, no accounting for where the money came from, what and who it is spent on or who and what it bought and it’s all tax free and hidden. All under the name of god and be a holy virtue.

I watched the Senate vote just now. If America is lit on fire and burns to the ground it will be no surprise. I just watched our country get stolen, I just watched it be robbed by 51 people. That’s all it took and for me, each one should be charged with Treason. No, it does not involve guns and such but it is a war against the poor in this country. This was not a vote for America, it was a vote to undermine our Republic and it’s Democratic institutions. This was a vote for money, paper currency, coins of silver and gold and who has the most of it, of money. This vote was against all that made America a once strong and vital nation. It is now officially a nation of greed and all that ugliness brings with it. Morals, ethics and the health and welfare of our fellow citizens has been bought and sold to the highest bidder. Once this bill has been read, digested and exposed for what it is the shock of the amount of social engineering will amaze and disgust most Americans. Everything that the wacko-christian-right has wanted since the death of FDR has come true. Happy Holidaze America, welcome to Mordor.

Philip Alston will be in the U.S. from Dec. 4th through the 15th visiting communities, organizations and individuals to examine the extent of poverty within America. He is the Special Rapporteur on extreme poverty for the United Nations. His report will come out some time during the spring of 2018. There is much that he will discover I am sure. The focus isn’t just on an hourly wage but more on access and availability to basic human needs. I had wished to contact his department to make a few suggestions but am too late, that deadline passed last October. With the passing of the “budget” and the “tax reform” items through the House and Senate there will be much more for him to examine. Inequality is a major issue he will examine and this has grown exponentially since the election. I hope you visit the link and explore one area of U.N. activity that is most important to our daily lives because of the shifting sands under our very own feet brought on by our government.

…it is hard keeping up with all that is happening and finding little gems among the stones can be rather difficult at best but this takes the prize for being a diamond…trumps visit to England has been canceled because of his re-tweeting of horrible video’s, hate filled and ugly video’s. One of them has been found to be fake. His press mouth piece says that doesn’t matter if the threat is real. Truth doesn’t matter. This began when trump was born and by the time he claimed Mr. “O” wasn’t born in the U.S. it had totally disappeared from his brain. Only what he thinks is real. It is real for everyone. His corrupt and delusional perception of reality is what we all have to think now because it is the only thing real. Truth doesn’t matter as long as the threat is real. Okay. trump is a threat to the nation he is President of and of the world in general because of his ability to push the nuclear button at any time. He has really long fingers that can even poke through the t.v. screen he is watching to push that button and blow us all up. Propaganda is good for us unless it is a lie.

“…….quoted from the article …..Klaas, the author of “The Despot’s Accomplice: How the West is Aiding & Abetting the Decline of Democracy,” said the White House press secretary had given an “Orwellian” response to questions about those anti-Muslim videos Trump retweeted from a British fascist.

“Sarah Huckabee Sanders says it doesn’t matter if it’s true, what’s true is what the president says,” Klaas said.  ……..quoted from the article…”

Under the tab “MORDOR” I write about trump and fascism in America today. Yes it’s here, that does not mean it’s here to stay, does it?

Freedom of the press and internet neutrality are one and the same now. We all are reporting on our lives one way or another, we all are reporters. All we do on the internet is recorded and the mass of information grows by the second. For the FCC to take that away from us would be a huge blow to our free press and our freedom of speech. The loss would undermine the Bill of Rights and our Constitution in ways not seen yet. He who controls the information controls the message. I like being able to express myself, because of my disabilities writing has always been the best way for me. To loose this would cripple me more than I already am. When I really think about it, it is yet one more way my government is moving me more and more to the margins. I am so weary from and of fighting for every scrap and left-over society thinks I should have. I’m worn out from it. So, there is William Rivers Pitt. I remember when he quit being an English teacher to report on the election of 2000?, Gee, that long ago? I have always enjoyed his writing. It is clear and concise just as you would image it to be. Here he is on freedom of the press and a free internet and I say job well done.

The Internet Is Freedom, and It Is Under Attack

…unless you are disabled you haven’t a clue what it is like living at the margins…I don’t require a wheelchair or any hardware yet but I might someday… I do require expensive medications, 5 inhalers for allergies and asthma…3 of which cost over 1,000.00 a month at retail value…because I receive extra help with my drug benefit Part D, my out of pocket cost is 8.50 per script…this will end if the tax reform bill gets passed and becomes law…I will loose-out on life at the margins…

…simple for me, don’t own a cell phone…I have a landline and no answering machine, if you call and I’m home I will pick-up, if not, oh well…the government is full of spies, good and bad, I just don’t buy into it, I have my life and it’s mine not theirs so I keep it mine…I didn’t need a cell phone before they were made whats to say I need one now?…the internet? different story altogether…on the other side of the coin is, this makes me afraid of the government, they are everywhere and as far as I can tell with no reason other than to scare you into compliance, I have yet to meet someone I would think was a danger to our country than all these control freaks in government, it’s all about control…

I am starting a new page titled Daily Press where I will respond to information I find across the web. I have been posting across the web and not focusing on my duties here. This ends tonight 11/30/17  7:12 pm. Much of what I have to say doesn’t get here and here is where it belongs instead of preaching to the choir or on sites where I am ignored such as facebook which shouldn’t bother me because it is the shallow end of things but it does. There are those that “like” a photo here and there but there is no dialog. Elsewhere I am, as I said, preaching to the choir and I get great responses. It would be nice to have honest dialog but I know that is impossible on the web so this will be a place for my opinion. The latest items will be at the top and work down.

Feel free to contact me using the “contact” page.
