Illegal Aliens! Heeeeeeeelp!

aliens-bsw

Certain low wage workers nowadays are labeled illegal and non-human. They are referred to as “illegal aliens”. A label based on them working north of our southern border as opposed to south of it, even though the same business owners either employ them south of it or north of it with the exact same result: that they get the work that makes them richer done by people desperate enough to work for starvation wages under terrible working conditions.

This creates a justified worry among American-born working people that the jobs they need are taken away or hurtfully reduced in wages and benefits, destroying their American Dream. However, the flip in responsibility is brainwashed into their minds by claiming these even more desperate fellow workers from the south TAKE their jobs away, rather than that the business owners (and/or their CEOs) GIVE them away.

Have you ever been able to TAKE a job that wasn’t offered to you?  Continue reading “Illegal Aliens! Heeeeeeeelp!”

Mississippi, ICE, ISIS, “Illegal Aliens” – And Some Rational Thoughts

In the aftermath of the recent ICE raids and the outrage on both sides (one legit, the other absurd) some reasonable thoughts finally emerged. Thoughts everyone should mull over. The following video presents some of them and my commentary below goes further:

 

11 Year Old Girl Tearfully Pleas For Father’s Release From ICE Custody
The Majority Report w/ Sam Seder

That terrible government official in the shared video above (someone I admit to call an oligarchy pig in the back of my mind) speaks of “criminal search warrants”. I must ask: How the heck do we, the people, let these power peddling corrupticians get away with criminalizing misdemeanors and labeling people as illegal? How can any honest and morally upstanding person put entering a country without a visa on the same level with committing murder, rape, or child kidnapping (the latter done by the same “police” forces who go after this supposed “crime”)?  Continue reading “Mississippi, ICE, ISIS, “Illegal Aliens” – And Some Rational Thoughts”

The Hurtful Use of Wrong Words in Journalism and Public Talk

Words are meant to help humans understand each other and their world. Wrong words can lead to the opposite. Using think-tank-made vocabulary designed to warp reality therefore plays into the hands of the establishment. For example, calling neoliberals a.k.a. corporatists a.k.a. fake-left-rightwingers “centrists” gives them a fake endorsement by being presented as a people’s majority and allegedly being more reasonable than anyone else by being supposedly distant form extremists.

Yet, nothing could be further from the truth when we are talking about a greedy, self-serving minority in cahoots with the robber billionaires who steal the world’s entire wealth from the rest of us and push us into submission. It’s a group of fraudsters hardly different from the neocons that warped the “R” party some time before the neoliberals then warped the “D” party. This party takeover has created the “good cop/bad cop” routine with which American voters have been befuddled in every election ever since. None of these crooks should be painted as “centrists” or allowed by us to present themselves that way.

The same problem can come from one’s own vocabulary mistakes, like when one compares Trump to Obama and describes Obama as nice and Trump as not nice Continue reading “The Hurtful Use of Wrong Words in Journalism and Public Talk”

1. Satire: “Honest Government Ad” on Climate

Humor helps dealing with serious problems. It decreases resignation and boosts persistence and strength needed in the fight for the much needed change. In addition, discovering the absurdity of ongoing policies is often easier when looking at other countries as we can take a view not so obscured by cultivated preconceptions. Hence here is another amusing piece from Australia:

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for thejuicemedia and the title: “Honest Government Ad | Climate Breakdown & School Strikes”)

I like a comment that was left on this video on Youtube:

You’ve never failed to impress me with every single one of your ‘honest government ads’

The salt is real.

The anger is real.

The satire is real.

I love you.

The Humanist Report

Mike Figueredo’s Humanist Report is one of my regular video sources, but being still stuck in continued education courses for resurrecting a former career, I ran out of time putting together yesterday’s Video Weekend compilation. (Another reason was a lot of wasted time searching for reports explaining the British piracy committed on an Iranian super tanker, especially one revealing the truth on the alleged sanction violations (apparently the sanctions used as a justification don’t actually exist).)

Well, Mike put out a whole bunch of videos worth sharing last week (and some the week before). So, here, today comes a catch-up:

 

1. Switching from Private Insurance to Medicare for All is a Huge Win

You will keep your doctor (if you are currently lucky enough to have coverage of any kind). It’s PRIVATE insurances that take them away from you. Medicare lets you keeo them even if you lose or switch your job or start your own business. (and as an employer you won’t have to wrestle with private insurances to offer employees an acceptable healthcare plan, btw!):
