Politics & Economics (and how to deal with them)

1. Government Ads: Brainwashing the Public

A humor attempt dealing with our brainwash from the criminal overlords:

2. Current Economy (and Civil War Fear) Summarized

Current problems and worries:

3. Being Ethical (Hear, hear, liberals and cons!)

And as Chris Hedges accurately points out at the end of this short clip, cynicism is not enough.

4. Chris Hedges: The Politics of Cultural Despair

If only someone like him were our president.

Chris Hedges “The Politics of Cultural Despair” ~ mediasanctuary (Oct 18, 2020)

  • The corporatist root of the fake-Christian right (like of the Nazis back in former Germany) and the anti-Christ ideology of declaring the poor and abused people failed Christians who allegedly suffer not by violence from above but by lack of religious spirit: https://youtu.be/GxSN4ip_F6M?t=3160
  • One quick thought inspired by a segment: Mega Pastors prey rather than pray.
  • The need to stand up and the class decidedness of the people: https://youtu.be/GxSN4ip_F6M?t=5680

5. Growing Awareness vs Stubborn Blinders in the U.S.

6. Summary of Media Oligarchy

Capitalism And Monopolies: How Five Companies Control All US Media ~ Second Thought (Aug 28, 2020)

7. Minor Reforms Don’t Make Capitalism Good and Safe

Reforms like the New Deal always get rolled back as long as the corrupt power of hoarded big wealth and large inequality is not removed.

8. The People’s Party Talks Are Much Better than the Twin Party Debates

Forcing change the two criminally comfortable corrupt major parties see no reason to make for us, the suffering people. Understanding that voting outside the twin party tyranny is not wasting one’s vote; voting for the corrupt is. And other insights:

10. Latest National Call of the People’s Party

Not one of the most outstanding ones (kind of diluted, still here it is not to be left out of the weekend compilation for any who want to keep updated on the Political Party’s National Calls… and people have been waiting for Mike Gravel’s showing up). High points: Former senator Mike Gravel – nationally famous for his attempts to end the Vietnam War draft and for putting the Pentagon Papers into the public record in 1971 – showed up at this national call and promoted both this party and his proposal of ground level law making. Also hints about how to start talks with people not yet familiar with the People’s Party.

Affordable New Homes & Homesteads, Part 5

Reminder: While this blog mostly deals with societal (political and economic) issues, this series researches what we all can do individually (and in groups) to deal with our housing issues that tend to constrict our lives so much nowadays. While previous segments mostly dealt with more affordable (and even better) construction, the current look goes at wasting less money (that we working people lack) on already built houses. And, yes, listening to real estate profiteers can be painful, but learning their tricks may help you or me getting a reliable or even good roof over our heads.

11. The Process of Foreclosure Sales

Three different places to enter: pre-foreclosure (deal with the foreclosure-threatened person), foreclosure auction at the courthouse, post-foreclosure (e.g.: buying from the bank that wants to get rid of maintenance costs). I couldn’t understand the bit on “Subject-To” (how does the original mortgage person stay stuck in the mortgage when you bought the house from him?). OTOH, the hinted at HUD thing could be interesting (a research key word: “hud homestore”).

12. Bank-Owned Foreclosures Can be More Affordable

This money maker is a bit hard to understand. And only some of his tips and insights may help home-seekers. But there are some cost reducing hints: such as cash payments rather than loans and certain “closure” timing.

13. Evaluating Prices

(and remember: when offering cash, or for various other reasons, you can negotiate down prices… best always offer a price below what you feel willing to pay, so that up-negotiation on the other end doesn’t exceed your budget)
