We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
(Of course, you need not be Jewish or a California resident to comment to the members of the California legislative caucus to scuttle this CRT loophole in the currently considered legislation. https://jewishcaucus.legislature.ca.gov/contact-us-0 Please be polite but firm. Antisemitism is just part of the CRT agenda. CRT is coming after your schools everywhere!)
So Andrew Cuomo's finished...Finished I tells ya!. I'll take the Zen Master approach and say... we'll see. I found the McManus article to be very interesting, revealing. But how come it's only coming out now? Or maybe I've missed the other hit pieces that have rolled out over the many decades in discussion.
I still get the sense that the negotiation isn't over. Anybody who strong-arms their way into power and then does it for a living knows that their wealth lies in the dirt they carry on everybody. Did that go away somehow?
Let's take another look when there are actual, non-misdemeanor criminal charges to review.
The sweeping “infrastructure” legislation making its way through Congress takes a pretty flexible view of what counts as “infrastructure.” Evidently,cryptocurrency regulation makes the cut, as the bill includes a provision imposing costly regulations on the digital, decentralized currency industry.
Will We Resist Institutional Fraud or Submit to the Ruling Class?
Regrettably, the duplicity practiced by our dominant elites and their enablers is matched only by the credulousness with which it is received by the mainstream public. The Twitter thread lists multiple occasions of ritual deceit, influence peddling, and interested persuasion. For example: The polls that assured us Brexit was dead in the water or that Trump had only a one percent chance of winning the election; that only Russian collusion could explain his victory; that Jussie Smollett was noosed by MAGA thugs or that the Coventry students insultingly confronted a native elder; that masculinity is “pathological and harmful,” as the American Psychological Association confidently asserted; that the COVID virus emanated from a Wuhan wet market when a biological lab experimenting in “gain of function” technology was just up the street; that lockdowns were mandatory to prevent the spread of the disease while massive BLM protests were officially permitted on the grounds that they were actually “a profound public health intervention”; that looting, burning and ransacking communities in the name of fighting racism were “mostly peaceful”; and that America is a racist nation through and through (although millions of immigrants, legal or illegal, are intent on coming to the country); and so on and on. The thread concludes: “These same people are now telling you the vaccine is safe.”
