I'm not a fascist collaborator.
And yet you are promoting collaboration with 'fascists' ... :rolleyes: If it walks like a duck?



"Barring some unforeseen miracle, the White House will be occupied by a reactionary, racist sexual predator for the next four years. Whether this individual plays for the red team or the blue team is irrelevant; both candidates uphold this sadistic system and both are utterly repulsive human beings.

Our movement will look beyond the narrow confines of the American presidency to build working-class power through labor strikes, mutual aid, unionization, boycotts, community defense, and other militant solidarity actions that exist outside the realm of this sham political system. The choice is not between Trump and Biden, but between socialism and barbarism."

Why not reform the Democratic Party?

  • Working people understand that the entrenched corporate parties cannot be reformed. Billionaires and corporations write the policies. That’s why almost two out of every three Americans is now calling for a major new party, including an even greater number of young and working people. To bring real change to this country, we must stand with its working people.
  • Party affiliation is near historic lows despite monumental efforts to bring people into the Democratic Party. The number of independents is now far larger than the number of Democrats or Republicans.
  • The Democratic party does not operate democratically. A small number of party leaders, insiders, lobbyists, and superdelegates hold the decision making power. The Democratic Party argued in open court it has a complete right — protected by the first amendment — to nominate whichever candidate it chooses and has no obligation whatsoever to abide by primary election results. Party lawyers argued that since all voters know the primary is rigged, there is no fraud. After decades of relentless work at local, state, and national levels, it’s abundantly clear there is no internal mechanism for real change. In fact, the opposite is true. Enormous power comes to bear to prevent democratic change. The billionaires want their people running things.
  • Only a tiny percentage of progressive candidates are able to successfully navigate the obstacles created by the Party. Those who win then face immense pressure to conform to the will of the Party elites. History shows that new progressives quickly drop their progressive mandate in exchange for committee appointments, support for their bills, assistance fending-off well-funded primary opponents, reelection support from establishment politicians, path to higher office, reelection, and continued income.
  • Historically, independent parties have been instrumental in bringing about progressive change. That’s the missing ingredient in our progressive movement today. The Democratic party needs to be replaced by a new party that truly represents the working people, not the billionaires.

Is not it best to blame the significant other (significant because of great numbers of the paradigm; objectively the other)?

Is it a trumped up diversion to illustrate the missing truth ... the vast unknown as a void metaphor ... hole-like?

The celtic word for hole was ron or don ... thus that spot in the knight where it arises ... a greatest of narratives about things to be queried! Is that strange or queer? Then there is this Strangelove of bombers, that bombed out:

There once was a psychologist type on WC (Marney T) that wrote a book on Distress Tolerance Skills ... a skill lost in those following immediate gratification intuitions that counter success demands of the get rich quick mode ... a node in Skye! Thus bumps and wrinkles in space ...

Unnoticed by those that believe not in the space of thought ... where the contemptible goes ... downgraded meditations? Tis odd to be sure ... when the domain of the unknown is very large ... uncertain*Leis ... or League of its own? It follows ...as latent Ci! Yah ...that could be it ... but then ... thinking fast versus thinking slow ... restrained potentials!

She is awesome. I remember it was from her that I got you being a sacred poet. She is deep.
I believe she also was a practitioner of Sufi and Gurdjieff?

I see that the world has abandoned the Palestinian people, and is seeking to dig the grave of any two-state solution to the problem imposed on Palestine AND Israel by a colonialist Western world.

And still, Trump ruins my listening. He's been on the news all day because of the Bahrain thing, and his voice makes me so nauseous that I turn off the speakers, then INEVITABLY, when I remember to turn them back on, there's a track on that I would have LOVED to hear all of, and then I'm even more irritated. I LOVE cello concertos; arriving mid-concert because of Trump makes me irrationally crazy.

Remember, this thread, started by late member Jae, is about how we "feel" about Trump. I'm not much in the feelings department, but some voices can just make me shoot straight up and turn left.

I agree with your following belief

"I think we should be very very careful about having any sort of opinion about Palestine."

Exactly where did you get that from what I've said? Did I previously say that? I think we should have a lot of opinions about colonization, and the denial of a two state solution in Palestine, THANKS TO THE U.S.

If you have a positive feeling about better relationships between the Israel of Netanhayu and the most oppressive Arab states, you are weighing against Palestine.

This is where written communication, even "emoticons" suffers.

I think that Rita is sad with me that the Palestinian (almost former) nation has been totally negated by the recent 'peace' initiatives.

For the grandest of winners we must all be losers so that they can control the *hole thing ... void created by avarice (control freaks)!

Not much sharing of the blame for disappearing societal traditions? "It was the others fault as is alternately believed to be true by the overly subjective in the point of turn around ... when the subjective realized the objective in out-there!

The solution ... God did it and thus resolution of the curves as they are thrown into straight-line political narratives ...

In short with growing politicization ... what can we believe as the item grows in acceptance without query? Thus the Leis'A factor ... lais doubt!

It may be verti gall as knots in the limbic tree ... limb Oz? Some traditions call it purge at orei ... leading on to Oreo ... cookies that defy nature ...
