The collapsing US military & economic empire is making Washington & NATO even more dangerous. US could not beat the Taliban but thinks it can take on China-Russia-Iran...a sign of psychopathology for sure. @BruceKGagnon

Mickey or mouse?



Biden just nominated a former Trump judicial nominee, GOP donor, and corporate lawyer as a federal judge. One more log on the fire to ensure Mr. Big runs everything.

Trump and Biden are corporate hacks, entertainers and bag men. They get paid and promoted for doing the work of ensuring the public are distracted and divided - all without conscience.

How any thinking person can fall for these games is way beyond me.

We are on the path into total totalitarianism. 

Believing that either of these two political parties can offer us anything is dysfunctional thinking.


The vast majority of Americans do not vote for a good reason. The fact that legions of people are now registering to vote as an 'Independent' is a good and telling sign.

But don't sit back thinking that some magic-bullet politician is going to save us. 

The only way we get out of this deal alive is if everyone stands up - shows leadership - because at the national level we have no real leaders. Sen. Bernie Sanders refuses to call for peace/respect toward Russia. Those Washington 'democracy' windows are slammed shut. Same for the 'squad' in the Congress. They are afraid to speak out. 

To understand where Washington's elite are heading it helps to look at sports in the DC area. The former Washington 'Redskins' changed their racist name (after many years refusing to do so) to the Washington Football Club. But that didn't last long - they've now changed to the 'Washington Commanders'. Their logo looks like it came from the Pentagon. 

To me this is a sign that the American people are being steadily brainwashed using every available mechanism to accept (and cheer for) continued military global aggression on behalf of corporate oligarchs. At the Pentagon (since the 2003 invasion of Iraq) they say that America's role in the world economy is 'security export'.


So we have to do the hard political work and I hope everyone will find some way that they can use their life skills to further this struggle for survival - we do it for the future generations.

Giving up (while tempting at times) is not an serious option.
