Bolivia may seem remote and unimportant to many Americans, but there is much to learn from its old and recent history marked by the same forces that ruin our American democracy and lives. The recent coup in Bolivia and the preceding history of the Bolivian grassroots movement and its critique of U.S. imperialism have therefore been intensely covered on this site. As mentioned before, to look up those past and all future reports, simply click this search link.
Here are the latest additions:

Great speech by and discussion with Chris Hedges, great conversation between Ralph Nader and Noam Chomsky, great economic and social insights from Richard Wolff, a great exposure of the surveillance capitalism turning us all into bots by Shoshana Zuboff interviewed by Amy Goodman, amazing new insights on Venezuela from Greg Palast interviewed by Jimmy Dore. Yanis Varoufakis speaking about the antidemocratic European cartel and the fight for liberty and justice in Europe. And there is more: such as the psychology of conservatives and progressives, the destruction of our social human bonds by capitalism, neoliberals beginning to recognize their faults, and updates on Net Neutrality and the media war.

Note: Over time these video weekend posts have grown to a very large size. For now they are shrinking since I am stuck in continued education costing me much time in an effort to resurrect a former career to rescue myself from sweatshops and precarious short-term/regular-un/and-frequent-under-employment. You still got hours of enlightening stuff to watch for your weekend, though, instead of pointless sports, bad entertainment, and cable propaganda “news”. Enjoy:
I. Great Chris Hedges Speech and Discussion

This year, as on some prior occasions, my family had no time and energy to prepare for a festive Christmas break. So we went to a grocery shortly before they all closed on Christmas Eve to buy some tasty tidbits and breads. One star among the latter was a French baguette. Sadly, it broke on the way to the cash register. We noticed it but decided to buy it anyway. It was somehow symbolic for my whole life to me. We decided to make its fracture harmless by eating it first, long before its fracture could dry it out. We even made good use of the fracture by doubling it over in our shopping bag that it otherwise wouldn’t have fit into. Bendable bread. Neat. Best thing since sliced bread perhaps. 😉
Making the best of all circumstances, good, bad, and horrible — that’s been my life. It seemed suitable to celebrate a family holiday that way. Oh, and isn’t Christ supposed to have broken some bread to feed the many? Continue reading “A Broken-Bread Christmas”

Consumerism is part of the yoke by which we are controlled, enslaved, and distracted from life’s priorities. We should use our holidays more for spending time with friends and family and less on barreling through stores and heaping giant loads of useless junk on everyone. That’s why I shared a critical consumerism documentary in last week’s Video Weekend.

1.) Great video clips. Hopefully you didn’t miss them!
2.) Great article: Yellow Vest Protests- Could We?
3.) Nice follow-up by Jimmy Dore:

Quote from the article: “We hear all the time that the US is the richest country on earth. Does it feel like that to you? Does it look like it when you hear of people dying because they cannot afford … medications? For proof, the media offers the stock market. Problem is, only a fraction of Americans actually have money in the stock market. Or a savings account. It’s hard to invest when you can barely pay rent and feed your family.”
The article suggest we are not ready yet in the U.S. ‘cause we are still too brainwashed, thinking that we are free, that mysterious market forces, immigrants, China, Russia, or personal failure is to blame for our pitiful situation. It’s a good read from a nurse (they see a lot of our misery, nurses do). I highly recommend it. Here is the link again.
As long as we keep letting ourselves be divided from above or believe the bullshit we are getting fed from above, we are paralyzed. The French seem to be ahead of us. Let’s move forward ourselves! Inform ourselves. Get a clue. Then act. And, yes, this here site can help you get informed. So better sign up for notifications of new posts.

Those of us old enough may remember the suspected Floridian election fraud giving G.W. Bush the White House in the year 2000 and again in 2004 (when other states lie Ohio joined the fraud, specifically using rigged voting machines). Then, two years ago, there was strong indication that Debbie Wasserman Schultz was reaffirmed in Florida’s Broward County through vote count tampering, and when her opponent Tim Canova asked for a recount or investigation, the Supervisor of Elections – Brenda Snipes – first stalled forever and eventually destroyed the ballots before they could be checked. (I call that destruction of evidence!) Therefore, this year Tim Canova decided to run outside the “Democratic” Party, so he couldn’t be cheated out of the race in the primaries again. Well, he may very well have been cheated in the November election. There are also Floridian voices asking for recounts and elections from other corners (both blue and red), such as the governor himself. Maybe, in this battle for victories, election fraud will finally be exposed? It’s high time that somewhere it gets exposed since it has been growing and growing (and gave us Trump instead of Sanders two years ago, if you ask me — and definitely not just in Florida). It might be Tim Canova’s shining historic moment if he can expose it in his county. I wish him plenty of success. Continue reading “Florida Fake Votes Flourishing”
