American Participation in Political Labeling

Mort Sahl would start his stand-up by showing a chart of Left, Right, and Center of the political spectrum saying that we needed the correct nomenclature to describe the politics of people. The U.S. has always seen its politics through this lens and as Mort Sahl fractured each column into more nuanced columns he admitted that you could continue to do this on-and-on.

With access to the World Wide-Web developers of political commentary are flooding and saturating the internet with blogs, videos, podcasts, and etc. That’s a good thing (as I explained in my last post). With all these broadcasts there seems to continue to be a distinction that we as voters must continue to perceive our politics as Left and Right, that self-determined individuals cannot unite on issues that interest them without the favor or endorsement of one of the two parties that represent the whole country is inconceivable or, to put it kindly; ignorant (naive at best).

There are bloggers that have seen through the veneer of restrictive sectarian labels and to the humanity that unites us all, they write with the hope that our humanity will coalesce us together over common rivals and issues that threaten us all. However, decades have divided us and these labels have entrenched into our culture, society, politics, education, and our minds; an analogous minefield.

When a blogger, vlogger or any developer ventures into politics they need to beware that other pundits will look to criticize and scrutinize what they write, and the way they write it. Pick your battles. Think about the outcome of your writing, will it be misinterpreted? Will there be a fallout? Mort Sahl understood his audience and spoke to it effectively, although I think his commentary was a bit shallow and was a response to the narrative of the time (i.e. Stalin was a “leftist”), he was less concerned about the consequence of such comments, because they were already wildly promoted.

No matter what extreme or radicalization of Left or Right, or Center we identify ourselves with, we all share our humanity. Maybe not all the same priorities.

I don’t wait for people to agree or promote my views, values, or beliefs, there are some people you can’t get through to, but, those issues and problems I’m concerned with I know will strike at the humanity and the things that those people value and that they may eventually come around (like some have with the ACA). As an individual I would not deny those people I disagree with the positive or gainful dividends of the things I promote or value. I do hope that through education that we can teach or demonstrate the thinking that results in benefits to them, their families, the community, and effectively the world.

Why Freedom of Speech is Important

In this era of Trump and right-wing extremism those that feel empowered to stand for their values seek to affect a positive change in the world. We all have a definition of what that is and, some of us agree and some of don’t. In their wisdom the founding fathers established the first amendment to enshrine free speech and the freedom of the press as the vanguard of liberty and justice. Though George Washington had issues with the press and, Thomas Jefferson encouraged James Madison to “…take up your pen, select the most striking heresies , and cut him to pieces in the face of the public.” against Alexander Hamilton and his Federalist; the founding fathers were not as amiable as we were led to believe. As early as 1797 John Adams and the Federalists controlled Congress, they believed they were the government and that no one should publicly criticize them (sound familiar?), and so, events led them in 1798 to pass a series of laws one of them being the Sedition Act; it’s provisions directly aimed at those who spoke out against the Federalist. Washington would go on to say (and I like this quote) “If freedom of speech is taken away, then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.”

Fredrick Douglas said “Power concedes nothing without a struggle.” and as John Lewis said “The press is supposed to serve as a check on the government.” Right now we are seeing an attack on the public’s access to broadcasting forums such as, Net Neutrality, communities lack print access for individual opinions, and with 51% of Americans claiming the television as their primary source for news and information the attack on local public access television continues. Whatever the role looks like, writer, singer, director, blogger, or vlogger, free speech is the material to a social-evolution.

Some developers of alternative media beg the question ‘Should critics cause discourse or only comment and inform us of it?’ I don’t think it matters. Artists have challenged our social norms, and this continues to today. Leo Tolstoy said “Art is a human activity consisting in this, that one man consciously by means of certain external signs, hands on to others feelings he has lived through…”. Developers wether they are bloggers, bloggers, and etc. are communicating their human experiences, in the times we are living in we should learn to listen and find merits that can lift us all to greater plateaus.

Whistle-blower Julian Assange is quoted “What annoys me the most is when people abuse their power and abuse innocents.” his goal, bring down the firewall between the Neo-liberal power and ordinary people. He currently has asylum at Ecuadorian embassy in London, self-imprisonment without being able to explore the city. President John F. Kennedy would defend this struggle by saying “Our press was protected by the First Amendment…to inform, to arouse, to reflect, to state our dangers and our opportunities, to indicate our crises and our choices, to lead, mold, educate and sometimes even anger public opinion.”

Developers should not have to adhere to a sense of commercialism, industrialism, activism or advocacy. The purpose of communication is to represent thoughts, feelings, opinions. We may not always like what people have to say or how they say it but, at the end of the day, we should appreciate that those things can be said. In a different parts of the world, and in different time periods the right of freedom of speech was a luxury given to the few. Today tolerance (and patience) will get us much further to attaining that “more perfect union” the founding fathers wrote of.

Time For Regime Change In Saudi Arabia

https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/0/0d/Flag_of_Saudi_Arabia.svg/1280px-Flag_of_Saudi_Arabia.svg.png

By Joseph Ballin 5/21/2017 10:37 AM EST

Make no mistake, it is not a coincidence that the same day Trump went off to Saudi Arabia to sign a 110 billion dollar arms deal with them, along with talks about establishing a Sunni “NATO”, he bombed Assad’s forces in Syria. You could say in a lot of ways David Frum was right about the axis of evil, except for the part of the axis being Iraq, Iran, and North Korea. The axis of evil is the United States, Israel, and Saudi Arabia, with the United Kingdom acting as America’s lieutenant.

In order to understand America’s slavish relationship with Saudi Arabia you need to know the history behind it. One of the most interesting facts about Saudi Arabia’s history is that of all of the lands conquered by European, American, Turkish, and Japanese colonialists, the middle part of Saudi Arabia was never colonized. So this area of Saudi Arabia, called Nejd, which avoided largely falling under foreign control, saw the birth in the 18th century of a revivalist movement called Wahhabism.

Flash forward to the 20th century. Starting in 1902, the House of Saud is waging a war to throw the Ottomans out of Arabia. The House of Saud and British struck a deal with each other. Saudis would get control of the holy cities from the Ottomans, in exchange the British would colonize the rest of the middle east. The foreign policy goal of the British and later Americans in the middle east is crushing secular Arab nationalism and socialism in favor of supporting conservative Islamists. The only exception to this rule was Islamic Republic of Iran, only because their country is Shia Islam. The reason for this was because America, the British, and Saudis knew that if the entire Arab world united under into a single giant super state that nationalized the oil for themselves, threw out the imperialists, and united all Arabs regardless of religious belief would mean that they couldn’t exploit the middle east anymore.

Fast forward to 2017, Trump is giving a massive speech today in Saudi Arabia about unavailing a Sunni “NATO” for the middle east. The one core thing connecting all of Trump’s cabinet picks was their hate of Islam and Iran. My predictions about Trump’s foreign policy was that he would largely continue Obama’s foreign policy of Syria, bogging down Syrian, Russia, Hezbollah and others fighting in Syria while America finds ways of undermining, but not ripping up the Iran deal. The one thing in Syria he has done that Obama didn’t was attacking Assad, showing he is even more in bed with the neocons than even Obama. You see this already with the recent sanctions on Iran, along with the travel ban. Fascist Trump is clearly preparing for a war with Iran and for good reason. He’s facing impeachment and his approval ratings are the lowest of any president ever polled.

However I still think the same events happening now would have also happened under a Hillary Clinton presidency, at least in foreign policy. The one key factor about US presidencies is that no matter what changes, relations with Israel and Saudi Arabia never change. That is the true deep state. Until the Saudi AIPAC control over US foreign policy is crushed forever we can never hope of any real change.

Dear Liberals: Obama has Already Enacted Trump’s Policies

After watching the Republican National Convention, self-righteous liberal punditry are up in arms in their faux outrage over Trump.  Of course, their faux outrage rings hollow when we realize that every thing that Trump has been suggesting, we have been doing it as far as I can remember.  Trump is merely open about it. Trump is not a monster that will rise upon America.  He is America personified.   If you are not outraged about actions, please don’t be outraged about words.  You are merely angry because you can’t ignore it any longer.

Banning Immigrants
Bombing Families..
More Protections for Cops

 

 

Trump is a mirror America!  Don’t like what you see? Good!  This is what the world has been seeing for the past 50 years.  Enjoy!

Ben the republican black man, lives in Maryland,
no longer does he chase his mom with a hammer in in his hand,
A famous brain surgeon, he has a blessed life,
no longer tries to stab his friend with a friggin knife

Ben the republican black man, runs for president,
No government experience, but don’t say that he can’t!
Ben, the republican black man, kinda like Herman Cain
Ben is more soft spoken, yet Ben is more insane,

Ben was asked if he was ruthless enough to do the deed
Of slaughtering innocent children, Ben, said, yes indeed!
Bombs Ben orders will inflict death and pain and strife
Yet Ben said the unborn fetus shall have the right to life,

Ben the republican black man, runs for president,
No government experience, but don’t say that he can’t!
A famous brain surgeon, he has a blessed life,
no longer tries to stab his friend with a friggin knife
