Video Weekend 11-04-2017 (7 + 1 Videos)

This weekend’s mix of enlightening videos, starring Jimmy Dore, Chris Hedges, and David Graeber, focuses primarily on two topics: government (despotism vs democracy) and the economy:

Note: Somehow the announcement of this posting failed to go out yesterday. I have therefore just added one very entertaining video at the end here instead of making a new post out of it. It’s big fun! Skip to it if you watched the others yesterday.

 

I. “Democratic” Party Reform not Working (Jimmy Dore):

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Tulsi Gabbard Rips The DNC – Demands Change”)

Maybe Tulsi should dress in her uniform when she gives speeches. (and also stop being so polite)

 

II. The hill of the shining beacon has caved in (Jimmy Dore):

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “CIA Whistleblower Reveals CIA Still Torturing – Here’s How“)

 

III. The Silencing of Truth, Justice, and The People (Chris Hedges):

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “On Contact: The Silencing of the Left with Robert Scheer”)

The thing to realize for a lot of folks who have been raised to hate the “left” and self-identify as the “right” is that when you are against billionaire money in politics and for the needs and wishes of the people, you are actually “left” by the standard definition. The establishment has played a trick on you reversing the definitions of political labels, turning them on their heads, so that we, the people, fight each other over self identification, hating the other group for being our opposite when, for the most part, they are actually the same. So, if we can’t agree on the meanings of these labels, let’s drop them – they are only words, after all – and unite around the actual issues on which most of us agree, like a fair economy and functioning democracy where we all can have a good living and a voice in our public affairs.

Quote: “Everybody out there has a story of abuse.” So… maybe we should all become more willing to accept the grievances of others and commit to help one another?

 

IV. Ideal vs real vs underestimated economic inequality (in case I haven’t shared this before):

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “The collapse of the american dream – This will scare you”)

 

V. Money is not our limit (David Graeber):

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “David Graeber: debt and what the government doesn’t want you to know | Comment is Free”)

 

VI. When the rich make the tax rules to their benefit, it creates gross inequality:

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Were Not Broke – The Corporate Tax Cheats of America”)

 

VII. A final word of reason — Voter’s Leverage — This is how democracy works:

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Democratic Civil War! A Struggle We Must Win“)

 

VIII. HEHEHE:

Jimmy Dore at his finest as a comedian, giving us an ironic parody of disgusting MSM behavior:

Remembering the November Election with Lewis Black

I dug this up. It’s still funny (and fitting):

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Lewis Black on Donald Trump and Election”)

… except for him dismissing Hillary’s criminal acts (example her arms deals and regime change acts). Maybe he’s getting old. Not sure. I haven’t watched him in years since The Daily Show lost traction.

Three Wishes for Trump

New Mr. President, can we have three wishes? How about investigating 911 and all living former presidents for crimes of corruption (including the Clinton Foundation)? How about putting powerful controls on the CIA without getting yourself assassinated? How about investigating and fighting all forms of election rigging and theft in the U.S. (including the gerrymandering and the “Interstate Voter Registration Crosscheck” program which helped you become president, plus the theft of the primaries from Bernie Sanders)? Are these still only three wishes, or did I go over the maximum already? Continue reading
