Politics & Economics (and how to deal with)

1. Cultural Irrationality: Are We Adult Enough to Handle our Crises and Corrupt System?

Chris Hedges on ‘The Childish Mania of Hope,’ + James Baldwin, Gramsci and Aristotle ~ Katie Halper (Oct 9, 2020)

Let’s hope enough of us suffering in the bottom part of our dungheap society are waking up enough and growing up enough mentally to make the changes we need via organizing, people movements, direct actions, and a people’s party as well — cutting much of the power money has over our lives and removing money also from politics that should serve the people, not bewilder and oppress the people and kill our planet as it currently does aligned with a corrupt and destructive economic system that’s a kind of dynamic modern aristocracy with a tunnel vision of profits and nothing else.

2. Plagiarist President

We currently have a former Reality TV Show host as fakish president (Trump) who made all sorts of dishonest promises to his voters (like pull out of our endless wars, ensure health coverage, bring back jobs…) that he never tried to fulfill, being in the Oval Office only to make himself and his buddies even richer than they already are (based on wealth inheritance and theft). And now we are supposed in November to pick between him and another faker, in this case one who doesn’t merely have his dishonest speeches written by paid “consultants” but by outright stealing them from other politicians, so he can make himself appear good when he is just another evil thief of power, wealth, and status. And should we, the people, keep playing along with this?

BIDEN’S Endless Circle Of PLAGIARISM! ~ The Jimmy Dore Show (Oct 11, 2020)

P.S.: You can find lots of news reports on Biden’s lifelong plagiarism (crookery respectively) if your search for “joe biden PLAGIARISM”, for example on Youtube.

Also, here is an article that lists Biden’s criminal life steps: Joe Biden’s Garbage Career: A Timeline. Like other sources do, it sometimes blames him for abysmal deeds of the Obama administration without us knowing if he was active in it or just playing golf. But there also are a plenty of his truly own deeds listed, and also a good number of informative links including past TV interview captures of him admitting what he stood for and did. To give a hint, here is a link from that list towards the official filming (plus some added written data) of Bad Biden honoring one of our biggest genocidal war criminals (G.W. Bush): Biden presents Liberty Medal to George and Laura Bush: Bush was my opposition, not my enemy

3. Profit-Making from Blaming Failures on Russia

Nancy Pelosi Profiteering Off Russia-Gate! ~ The Jimmy Dore Show (Oct 11, 2020)

4. UBI Data (An Economic Boost Not Loss)

Scott Santens Responds to Steve Forbes’ UBI Explainer Video ~ Scott Santens (Aug 24, 2020)

5. UBI Against the Curse of Money

Full interview of Scott Santens from film “UBI, Our Right to Live” ~ Scott Santens (Jul 1, 2019)

6. School’s Grading is Capitalist Conditioning

Not perfect (he has less experience than I) but several good points plus some good thought stimuli worth taking a look at for most people:

Grading is Capitalist Conditioning ~ Ryan Hibbs (Sep 3, 2020)

7. Our Fakefully People-Serving Presidents (Case: Obama)

OBAMA’s Legacy – Facing The Truth. ~ The Jimmy Dore Show (Oct 15, 2020)

Last sentence maybe to edit a little: It’s the greater (or equal) evil making itself look like a lesser one. Of course, Obama not only stunted to make himself look like a LESSER EVIL but spouted “Hope and Change”. (a little like Bernie… and what did Bernie actually do to make his promises happen? Skip out of both presidential races. *ponder*)

8. The R&D Voter Scheming: Chomsky Stuck vs So Insightful & So Sadly Dead David Graeber

CHOMSKY Confronted Over Voting Biden Strategy ~ The Jimmy Dore Show (Oct 15, 2020)

9. Economic Update: How to Handle Country-Destroying Globalist Overlords

… and life-deteriorating system forcing people to break laws, then throw the police at the already hurt people (and boosting police brutality) …

Economic Update: New U.S. Labor Militancy ~ Democracy At Work (Oct 12, 2020)

10. The Rich Bastards

Avoiding taxes, laundering dirty money, raping children. All business as usual for billionaires. (I may remind you of my Vapid Lives of Destruction series):

Saagar Enjeti: Wall Street Billionaire CAUGHT Paying Epstein Millions After Visiting Private Island ~ The Hill (Oct 13, 2020)

11. COVID: Insights From a Cardiologist, Internal Medicine Doctor & University Researcher

I seem to have finally chanced upon a reliable info source about the COVID coronavirus medical issues. In this video he exposes a lot of false claims made by mass media and dishonest or simply fake scientists:

COVID: Where Science Goes To Die ~ Medlife Crisis (Aug 23, 2020)

Affordable New Homes & Homesteads, Part 4

WARNING: Looking at how to find homes affordable to buy leads into the realm of greedy profit makers who care nothing about the lives of other people, even laugh and drool getting rich while exploiting others. However, a few of real estate profit makers leak out some of their tricks while they brag or try to bait business partners.

So, take a deep breath before listening to some of them. (at least I found a guy who focuses on his awesome renovating abilities and can give us good hints on what to watch out for when buying cheap homes)

12. Many ways to find homes

(from a real estate money maker, of course (ugh)… but some points made may help you or me find a roof over our head)

Calculating Numbers on a Rental Property [Using The Four Square Method!] ~ BiggerPockets (Nov 9, 2016)

13. Awesome Cheap House (dirty, damaged roof, bad plumbing)

$9,000 CASH HOUSE ($150K Value) Renovation Day 1 ~ Homemade Home (Jul 18, 2019)

From the late 1970s until about the mid-1990s, polybutylene plumbing (branded as “Quest Pipes”) was an extremely popular choice with home builders due to its light weight, low cost, and ease of use compared to traditional copper piping.

However, polybutylene plumbing has since been banned (not sure if in every state), and homeowners tend to be advised to have their home re-piped as soon as possible if they still have Quest pipes running through their home. Polybutylene pipes have failed in the past without warning, flooding homes. I hear that there was a class action lawsuit over Quest Pipes and that home insurance companies have started declining to cover homes which have Quest pipes running through the walls. What plumbing to replace them with, I don’t yet know.

14. Off-Market Properties

Five ways to find off-market houses to buy:

How To Find Cheap Houses in 2020 ~ Morning Invest (Mar 3, 2019)

Tax liens = especially cheap houses

pennies on the dollar, tax… auctions (and a hint at them being doable +- online), the 1st Tuesday every month, redemption period (e.g. 6 months, and 25% interest received if the purchase is revoked)

Life Tips

15. Clip-on Flip Reading Glasses

Something I invented in my head years ago as a better alternative to those hugely expensive, view-narrowing, world-wave-spinning, head-twisting, neck-stiffing “varifocal” (progressive) glasses and hard-to-use adjustable-lens glasses and vision-blocking bifocal glasses were flippable reading lenses (magnifying lenses for reading or computer screens or hand work) to be attached to one’s longer-distance prescription glasses made from single-vision lenses. Doing a search, I now discovered that others have invented them, too, and are producing them. Yeah! 🙂 This video gives a hint:

Clip on Flip up Readers ~ DebSpecs.com (2015)

Which product line might be the good, which bad, I don’t know. In part this will require personal reseach based on one’s personal desires, anyway.
