1. Why We Need a True Left Rather than the “D”-Party (Hedges & Street) ***
… one that starts organizing from the ground, allying with people in need, boosting them, and growing a political movement from there rather than bickering about a twittering corrupt president in a totally corrupt upper structure that he is a natural product of.

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.

Medicaid was created to help those who, because they are too handicapped or sick, cannot work and thus acquire health insurance through a job — or who at least cannot work and earn enough to purchase health coverage. Since we live in a country by now that is controlled by the ultra-rich and forced to shift ever more wealth from everybody else to the rich, Arkansas has recently turned Medicaid on its head, denying it to those who don’t meet newly created work requirements – kicking 12,000 people off the Affordable Care Act’s expansion of Medicaid. Furthermore there is a long list of states whose sociopathic governments formed by the money aristocracy are planning to do the same in addition to the five states already approved to do so by the Trump administration.

Note: I grew up during the tail end of the ‘golden age’ expecting a just and fair life. All I have had is a shitty life. Similarly to this man, I have wished all the time I had never been born.
