Fix it, brother!
Both sides of the aisle? Easy-peasy. Just hand the shepherd’s crook over to Biden and he shouts, “China” … The donkeys lined up behind him are just as obedient as elephants. No new tricks required.
Cripes! I remember the transition. Democrats relied on the Solid South…racism, Jim Crow laws and all, to stay in power for decades. Then, as a result of pressure from the growing civil rights movement, they relented. They figured they better join the nation changing in a progressive direction.
As a result, the Republican Party took over state government in all the most racist states. That’s what “Republican tradition” means in most of the South. It goes back to the success of freedom fighters at the federal level…and your friendly neighborhood bigots simply changing parties.
Bonus round…two-party history…1947.
For two decades now, our government has sent U.S. military service members to fight in an ever-expanding, global conflict.
Thousands of Americans and countless civilians have died, trillions of dollars have been wasted, and entire regions of the world have been destabilized. Instead of making us safer, this reckless conflict has militarized our society, fed xenophobia and hate here in the U.S., and created more extremism abroad. The frustrated Veterans who fought call this the “Forever War” — but together, we have the power to end it.
We need to bring our troops home. We need to stop bombing other countries. And we need to spend the trillions of dollars that we’re wasting on the Forever War here at home instead, making investments that benefit working Americans like COVID relief, green jobs, healthcare, and more.
There’s more to this plea for sanity…and a petition over here.
Since 2010, 54 women came to power as prime ministers, presidents or chancellors…
Estonia, Singapore, Ethiopia and Finland – these are some of the 21 countries currently governed by a female president or prime minister…Yet a woman president of the U.S. still remains only a hypothetical.
The 2020 Democratic nomination contest originally featured six women candidates, a record number. But the most prominent female candidates for the Democratic nomination – Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren and Amy Klobuchar – have all dropped out, and the focus of the race has narrowed to two males.
[This] research examines what countries where women run the government have in common – and why the U.S. still lags behind.
Same as it ever was. Not even any new lies to supplant all the old rationales.

You can take my meaning many ways. The subtle bits and pieces are useful; but, the essential point doesn’t change. While “analysts” prattle about progressive democrats vs centrist democrats, in very many ways there is little difference between the whole lot and conservative, racist, profit-driven power brokers who own damned near all our politicians, elected officials, government.
Nothing is more important to them than maintaining the imperial power of the United States. That translates to several important characteristics. Globally, all nations should keep their economy and education subservient to the GOUSA. Domestically, that means free access to healthcare, education, jobs, equal rights, equal opportunity still takes second place to profits.
Yes, the political system still derives from economics. That doesn’t mean don’t vote. If you want an opportunity to change the system at all, you must avail yourself of what social democracies we have available. Doing otherwise, just leaves even more control in the hands of fascist-minded creeps like trump and the villains who pull his strings.
