I suspect that, as a thin “black” man, he isn’t very attractive to many. In an age when the rich, sexy, and powerful get the most attention, his skin color or ethnicity probably keep many folks from ever listening to him. Furthermore, his English grammar sometimes slips (unfortunately that’s true for many Americans nowadays). And, yet, I find it shocking that he doesn’t have more viewers on Youtube, because – quite frankly – some of the most brilliant political commentaries I have heard are from this man: Jamarl Thomas. Just as I believe that I should have more readers to spread good sense, he should have more viewers — in spades! Continue reading

Maybe you just heard? Obama finally acceded to so many of us pleading and finally commuted the whopping 35 year sentence (more than most murderers and rapists get) of Chelsea Manning, one of our nation’s greatest whistleblowers. Manning is the one who allowed us to learn of the mistreatment of unlawfully detained people and the callous murdering of civilians (including reporters and good Samaritans) which parts of our military committed in Irak and elsewhere. These are things we should know about, shouldn’t we? Continue reading

Friends, as I have been busy explaining all year, the “Democratic” and Republican party are like the two arms of the establishment. Both work for the oligarchs (the robber billionaires and their mighty minions, the big banks and corporations), and we should break them both. The “Democratic” Party is a closer goal since Bernie Sanders’ populist upset and a rising Green Party which has gained enough support for us to move it into play (even if this election’s election fraud apparently made a point in reducing its permitted and counted votes to an alleged mere 1% — and, yes, as I have also been trying to explain, the better cheater “wins” our elections until we clean them up).
Anyway, as the news from TYT clearly show, it was – once again – the establishment which won the dog-and-pony show we get every four years. Watch:
As I have proposed in Seven Strategies against the System, we really must tackle our systemic corruption on a broad front.

So huge has corruption become in our society, that I can’t help but worry we may no longer be faced only by corrupt politicians who rig elections and serve unscrupulous billionaires while being aided by a propaganda press. A trembling voice in my mind bugs me about other, more dark and dire elements who have been witnessing our society’s decline into corruption, the very dark and murky water in which they have always swum. What’s to keep them from getting their seat at the table of obscene, ill-gotten wealth? … In other words, what have the thugs been up to?
