Day 382:

Gun Control Or Shut the Fuck Up!

I think Marc Ruffalo said it best “Prayers without accordant action are silent lies told to oneself, heard by no God, amounting to nothing.”

Ban Bump Stocks
Ban Assault Rifles
Ban Supressors
Ban High Capacity Magazines
Universal Registry for guns
Universal Background Checks
Universal Health Care (including mental health)
Limit how many guns you can buy a year
Make a 3 month waiting period for guns
No one convicted of a felony can own a gun
No one convicted of domestic abuse can own a gun
No one adjudicated mentally unfit can own a gun
No more gun show loop hole
Strict licencing requirements including mandatory training, trigger locks and gun safes to own a gun
No one under the age of 21 can own a gun
End ban on gun research

Gun control now, or shut the fuck up!

Day 368:

Hold Corporate Democrats Responsible

Elected representatives, especially those that have been in office a very long time, have a lot to be held accountable for. You cant do one good thing and have it make up for all the bad stuff you have done.

Go to opensecrets.org and take a look at Pelosi’s donors. Sure one of those big companies might have given her money once just to see what would happen, but when they gave her that money over and over and over it was because they were getting a good return on their investment. You can’t allow the government to be taken over by big money, because they will only work for big money.

Nancy Pelosi gave a great speech, and stood up and was counted on the correct side of history…this time. But day in and day out she is eroding the foundation of our democracy by funneling millions of dollars of corporate money to the democrats in the house.

Her voting record reflects the influence of this money, they keep giving it to her because they know it works…so no I don’t think our job is to pat our rep’s on the head and tell them when they have done a good job, its to hold them responsible for EVERY action they take on our behalf, and to kick them out when they have a track record of not doing what they should.

Day 366:

Smash And Grab

The mega rich got that way by taking other peoples money.  They didn’t earn it through hard work

Bill Gates didn’t get to be that rich by working really hard at a job. He got that rich by taking some of his workers money, or some of your money, or some of the kids in china stamping out computer chips all day for pennies money.  He took it from the environment by having e-waste dumped in China rather than paying for it here.  An environmental commons that we all pay for, but he abused for free.

At every stage of the process he took some of the money that someone else should have earned, either by moving the job to a place with no labor or environmental laws, or by using his already vast wealth to pressure people into giving him discounts, either on products or taxes.  Or by simply hiding them overseas so that he gets all the benefits of the system we have set up here (strong rule of law, good educated workers, good infrastructure, etc), without actually paying for any of it.

No one “earns” 100 billion dollars. If a fair wage is say $25 an hour for labor try to work out how many hours bill gates would have to work to get 100 billion.  (ps.  Thats 4 billion hours, or just over 456,621 years, roughly 2.5 times the age of the entire human species)

The government could just break up Apple or Microsoft, or Amazon tomorrow, call them a monopoly, call them illegal tax dodgers, the government is not helpless against these companies.

We are not helpless before the oligarchs, but they would sure like us to believe that we are.

Go read a book about FDR, or see how some other countries manage their economies. There have been and continue to be better versions of things than what we have here. We don’t even have to think up new systems, only copy others that work better than ours. Or hell even go back to the way things used to be here.

I am pretty distressed by how many weak willed, give up before they try, people there are in this world.

Don’t bow down to our  oligarchs, even the benevolent ones are putting us in chains through their  existence.

TAX THE RICH!  Build a society that works for everyone, not just the 1%.

Day 354:

Oligarchs Are Not Looking Out For You

I read this article, and all I could think was.

The problem with all this is that Amazon has no interest in human prosperity, only profit.

They will eventually get a system that messes up so little that it wont matter, and then they can fire almost everyone and just have a purely robotic work force.

This would be fine if the government was taxing them heavily and using that money to provide a UBI or some other sort of social benefit.

But they wont, they will lobby the government to lower their taxes, and allow them to keep all their money. The end result being the division of those who own capital (in the form of robots) and those who don’t.

Those who don’t wont matter, and those who do will reign over all others.

Its a nasty brutal future that doesn’t have to exist, and is only perpetuated by greed. Amazon represents the worst of this drive, constantly optimizing for profit over human good.

Jeff Bezoz, Bill Gates, and Warren buffet, three people, are worth as much as 50% of Americans right now, and its only going to get worse.

Call up your senator and tell them you want to live in a future where robots do all the work, and everyone shares in the spoils. Not a world where a couple of all powerful oligarchs treat the rest of us like so much human garbage. We don’t have to allow this to happen to us, we can stop it now before it becomes unstoppable.

Ps. One easy thing you can do is not shop at this panopticon of a nightmare store.
