Thread: "Climate Change Is Happening Now – A Carbon Price Must Follow", by James Hansen.

that point of view is just insane! Is it Not?

It's trade, not the deficit that fucks us first. With a deficit they have our increasingly worthless money but we have the real goods. We can abrogate the debt at any time. However our brain dead politicians and population will honor debt, though we [who are about to die] starve to death. Given that reality I agree that trade, which exports goods raising domestic prices, and the deficit are insane.

Scary Shit = The PBS News Hour on 4/19/2018 - said that the trade deficit is good for the USA and that includes foreign countries like CHINA owning our debt! http://www.pbs.org/video/the-argument-for-a-u-s-trade-deficit-with-china-1524181803/

Now call me stupid - but that point of view is just insane! Is it Not?

people always have choices

WTFU! We live in an oligarchy! It's owned by Wall St. Billionaires. We pretend we have choices in meaningful free democratic elections. And let's not forget that "Citizens United" opened the door to foreign money buying in to Amerikan "Democracy." So the conservative Supreme Court is complicit and in collusion with Russia's, China's et al's conquest of our nation.

people always have choices you can choose to stand on the sidelines or vote for a lost cause and let people like trump win or you can try to stop him. People who refuse to step up and make a choice to stop people like Trump are as bad or even worse in many ways than those that actively support him.

Oh - but it is! CorpoRAT Health Services = understaffed underpaid & working toxic amounts of overtime to get the most profit out for the executive staff and shareholders

key word: "intrinsically" the corporate conditions are extrinsic to the provision of medicine. I said that administration can be thrown in the FIRE. And putting out the FIRE remains the top priority. It is deserving of all our attention at this time. Spread the word. Cross post this thread and hope it goes viral.

Healthcare provision is target 2 for me. At least it's a useful service that's not intrinsically parasitic

Oh - but it is! CorpoRAT Health Services = understaffed underpaid & working toxic amounts of overtime to get the most profit out for the executive staff and shareholders. Patients charged an arm and a leg for services where insurance might not cover one single penny of the stay or the procedure(s). Just sayin - do they really need to charge $1,000.00 or more per day ($1,000.00 is super cheap and unheard of) just for a bed?

The ACA needs fixing/improvement and insurance provider's as well as care provider's are very much in need of reform/change!

Healthcare provision is target 2 for me. At least it's a useful service that's not intrinsically parasitic like the FIRE sector, which includes healthcare insurance and administration.

a coordinated attack on some specific target

Insurance is as good a place to start as anywhere/anything else (what is wrong in this for profit business is akin to what is wrong in "ALL" for profit business's) .

The ACA needs fixing/improvement and insurance provider's as well as care provider's are very much in need of reform/change!

In ALL it's a matter of follow the money = where is it going? Into care? Or into the pockets of the wealthy few who are the tapeworms in all business's (for profit as well as nonprofit).

While greed is the general source, I think we should start to erode the systemic abuse by a coordinated attack on some specific target. I suggested insurers' lies.

Community is the answer!

As a member of this community (USA).

To address this failing society (greed being the disease that is killing us).

The general population has got to band together and demand our government (s) represent the BEST interests of ALL !

In that regard

This is some of my thoughts that I share out on social media directed to various individuals who are in seats of power as well as sharing these thoughts to the general population (my community):

A reply to Tom Perez (he's worried) -

You should be worried!

Yeah the republican office holders are pure poison to the general Public - BUT - the democrats in office are getting more like those toxic republican office holders every year every election cycle.

SO - YEAH = You Should Be Worried!

Who will people (the public) put into office NEXT ? If the differences between pure toxic republicans and the less toxic democrats keeps shrinking?

The DNC really screwed itself when it screwed the PUBLIC by SCREWING Bernie Sanders and his whole campaign platform WHICH WAS FOR THE BEST INTERESTS OF THE GENERAL PUBLIC and tried to shove another of the Wealthy Few (sHillary Rotten Lip-service Campaign Stealing Clinton) down our throats!

YEAH = You Should Be ABSOLUTELY Worried!

All of You (democrat office holders) SHOULD be banding together to forward Bernie Sanders's whole 2016 campaign - That is of course = WORKING FOR THE BEST INTERESTS OF THE GENERAL POPULATION AND SO THE "WHOLE" OF THE USA !

But for all intents and purposes - it looks like to the general population (and that view of the public's is REAL) THAT the DNC is UNWILLING to band together to stop catering to the wealthy few (and their own pockets) and actually serve the BEST INTERESTS of EVERYONE !

So yeah - you got a lot of work ahead of you that needs to be done RIGHT NOW (not tomorrow or the day after or kick the can further down the road.......) - if you want to win a Growing PUBLIC support!

Insurance Scam

It's all a scam - car home life health . . . etc etc etc . . . insurance

The basic cause of inflation has been, is and always will be the dead weight at the very top of any for profit business be they an owner or the executive management or investors (leaches after initial investment has been repaid) share holders (major share holders - as they are the ones who the company needs to please with ever soaring returns).

Limits need to be placed to stop run away inflation caused by the need for increased profits to put in the pockets of the very few who do nothing to deserve the increases or any profit from the business what so ever!

Rus China's attitude regarding refugees was: http://www.newsweek.com/china-will-not-accept-syria-refugees-return-home-629499

How many Syrian refugees did Rus China accept? Guess.

Normally, the U.S. takes in many refugees year after year but just look at what we've gotten in our White House now. I don't know whether Rustia has cracked our 2016 Election because Mueller's investigation continues. However, Cambridge Analytica certainly had a hand in helping to put the bullshit there. I think that Rustia somehow funded Cambridge Analytica. The way our bullshit bends to favor Rustia undercutting his far more professional staffers is a very strong indication that Rustia probably holds a leash on the bullshit. Hillary would probably have admitted more refugees into the U.S. than bullshit because she had proposed a no-fly zone in northern Syria. However, Rustia's airforce was already there. Having U.S. fighter jets there bossing around in the sky could easily provoke a dogfight with the Rustian aircraft. It seems that clashes between the U.S. and Rustia are unavoidable in Syria because they are allied on opposing sides there.

I cheered when Pootin went into Syria bigtime and gave him the title "Pootin the Great." All he had done since then was wreaking havoc and creating human waves of misery sloshing towards Europe. ( Why not Africa, Rustia, or Rus China? Isn't it obvious? ) I understood gradually that he and Assad were aerial-bombing the Syrian civilians to turn them into refugees ( or endless anti-regime freedom fighters including ISIL which has Assad as its chief recruiter, and Syria into rubble ) for destabilizing the E.U. which he succeeded by causing Brexit. The U.K. allowed refugees to bring their families over later ( rather rare in the E.U. but it's more humane ) and it was doing well economically with jobs and good pay and benefits. Pootin was Not trying to stabilize the situation in Syria at all. I was wrong about his intentions and duly disappointed.

The U.K. was handling the refugees better by interviewing them in the refugee camps rather than having them take the very perilous voyage to get to the U.K. themselves. Germany was very generous and mostly welcoming to the refugees so I certainly appreciate Germany's stepping up to help although I would have preferred better screening and interviewing onsite, more similar to what the U.K. had done. Germany was a novice at taking in so many refugees at once so it should generally be excused for any bumbling.

Aerial-bombings by Assad and Pootin replenished with many aggrieved civilians the many groups of anti-regime/anti-coalition fighters. Just read how many different groups are involved here in the U.S./Rustia clash. Wars are just burning fires. We know how to control and prevent or extinguish fires: fuels, oxidants, and ignitions. Automobile engineers got the control of fire down to a fine art using fuel pumps, oxygen sensors, spark plugs, electronic fuel injection, ceramic-coated aluminum engines, etc. We can learn from them. Get people well-fed well-fucked ( but NOT producing a population explosion! All well-off countries don't suffer from population explosion so yeah, necessary are the contraceptive pills, barrier and rhythm methods, cunnilingus, fellatio, intercrural, pornography, masturbation, sex dolls serving Homo/Robo (gynoids/androids) Integration, or gay { Spartan warriors whom so many Fascists aspire to were probably gay similar to the carbon atoms in diamonds each forming up to and mostly FOUR! extremely strong bonds in the gayest mineral of all } and lesbian sex in the more individualistic and imaginative countries or draconian birth control methods such as forced abortions, genital mutilations, honored killings, stonings, or infanticides in the more fascist countries ) and wars die down. Biologists phrase it as food and sex, just a bit more politely than I.

Machiavelli wrote "The Prince" targeted for Lorenzo to use but Lorenzo earned "il magnifico" for his title without adhering to Machiavellian methods. It showed that fascist-style control is NOT absolutely necessary to achieving the desirable ends. "Firm on purpose; pliant on means," suffices. Lorenzo can rightfully be named as the Godfather of the Renaissance which catapulted the brutish infighting very divided and superstitious Medieval Europe to global wealth, dominance, and power. At Reykjavik, Reagan and Gorbachev together "shot down thousands of nuclear-tipped ICBMs" (the firm purpose) without later deploying the Star-Wars Defense (a pliant means). Alzheimer's earnest grand vision came true without going through a devastating nuclear war. It wasn't a dream. It's peace in our time.

Libya, Yemen, and Syria were all ignited by ( anthropogenic in my take ) climate change and exhaustion of oil revenue in Yemen's case. The attack on U.S.S. Cole pre-saged 9/11 attacks by nearly a year while Bush-it was campaigning on the U.S. leaving the troublesome countries to their own device. The total klutzes of the Bush-it regime created much suffering for many countries for decades already. One cannot withdraw unilaterally ever without having something else replacing the U.S. support. We NEVER do that to any building unless we are tearing it down. Yeah, I still remember our withdrawing support from Afghanistan only to have Al-Qaeda coming back out with a vengeance on 9/11/2001. Invading Iraq and firing its army personnel made the U.S. "penile Chainies" rich with Iraqi oil beyond our wildest dreams! We also told our enemies there when we would be drawing down our troops and be completely out of Iraq, smart weren't we?

None of these decades-long wars in Afghanistan and Iraq would have occurred were the U.S. earnest in building the Amero-Eurasian Empire and occupied the new accretions. The U.S. occupations of Germany and Japan had gone very well so it could be done with U.S. knowhow. Our problem was not being colonial or imperialistic enough so everyone criticizes us for the disastrous aftermaths. Withdrawal of troops after winning a war has been a rare practice amongst other nations. If the regional powers cannot or would not stabilize the war-torn aftermaths, the U.S. should just occupy them indefinitely by ourselves for the welfare of our posterity.

Gentlemen, we've done it before, in Japan -- we can rebuild him. We have the technology. We can make his bigger, stronger, faster...

Yeah, we should start a "well-fed well-fucked" Party to save the World from wars!

We only live once.
