Happy New Life!

bs-happy-new-life

For many of us, each Happy New Year turns into yet another Crappy Old Year. Who or what is to blame? We are trained to blame ourselves, but are you, or am I, really guilty of causing economic crashes or sudden health crises, mass lay-offs, and the like? Are we the creators of a profit-driven health insurance system that refuses to cover millions and covers many others only incompletely, so that the majority of American bankruptcies result from health crises? Are we really to be blamed for not being rich when our society is formed like a wealth pyramid with an impoverished broad base and a tall wealthy spire that rises many miles above the rest of the pyramid, all the way into outer space?

Question: Are We Ready for Our Own Yellow Vests Revolution?

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:

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for The Jimmy Dore Show , and the title: “Why French Protestors Have 70% Approval From Citizens”)

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.

Wow! Is this Real? Is the Revolution Starting Now?

vlad-tchompalov-219130-unsplash-scaled-down

Gee… All I heard in the mainstream media was that stingy French people are raving in the street like little children over gas prices. Now things are slipping through that suggest something much, much bigger, something of truly HUGE import for every American and every human being alive!

Three brief videos capture it well. Here is the first clip, a street interview recorded in France:

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for WeAreChange and the title: “Total Media Blackout! Paris Is Far Worse Than They Will Tell You!”)

Really captivating quote from this Frenchman in the street (slightly edited for clarity): “Don’t go for wishful thinking. Go for looking behind things, because it’s very clear that that’s what they (the oligarchs) want from us. They want us to go for wishful thinking so at the end of the line we are divided because we are not clear on what really is happening.”

So, is the people’s revolution which so many of us have been yearning for just around the corner? Is it already happening in France, with France as the model for the rest of the world? Can it happen without a people’s party or a well-structured people’s agenda? Is France spearheading the turning point? Let’s hear some more:

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for Jamarl Thomas and the title: “Richard Wolff | Masterfully Explains France’s Yellow Vest Movement”)

So, if the understanding and vision of the people is still insufficient to bring about the change we need, at least the momentum seems to have arrived, and the reaching out across traditional divides seems to be starting, at least in France for now, but perhaps unavoidably across the globe, including here in our beloved United States where we traditionally congratulate ourselves for our 18th century revolution which clearly didn’t go far enough, doing away with kings but not the robber barons. So, maybe we will live to see the final step sooner than we thought…

To conclude this little piece, I want to share one more short video. This one is from an American commenting exactly how I feel and think. I haven’t encountered him before, so I don’t know if I agree with him otherwise, but he really speaks for me in this brief video clip, and perhaps for you, too?

QuickyPinion: The Orange Distraction

I was sent a cartoon where a family sits happily around a dinner table. Then someone speaks one word – “Trump” – and instantly a violent brawl erupts. My comment:

Trump is a dumb topic neither addressing our underlying problems nor their solutions – which is why the establishment keeps dangling him in front of us.

As a topic he also divides us which likewise aids the ‘elite’. (better follow Beanstock’s World and other smart outlets such as I repeatedly link to from here for deeper thoughts and brighter visions)

Political Video Weekend 11-17-2018, Part B (Truly Far-Reaching Deepest Insights from Chris Hedges)

Nobody should miss this one: a sequel to yesterday’s Video Weekend and a really precious two hour talk by investigative journalist and articulate activist Chris Hedges that reveals a LOT, really a lot! Since most of us can only make time to listen to such a long speech on weekends – if we are even lucky enough to get weekends off from our ever worsening wage slavery, that is – I am sharing it today as part B of this video weekend. This speech that goes over so many things really deserves a special place.

 

XVII. Deep Insights

… delivered by Chris Hedges (incl. the pending giant economic crash and likely billionaire-financed rise of Nazi-America):

Florida Fake Votes Flourishing

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”
