Variations On a Theme: D.S. al finé

IF I were to sit down and think about it hard enough… I’ll bet I could come up with a list of at least 100 reasons why I cannot vote for anyone running as a Republican this fall. Chief among them, the delegitimization of the Office of President of the United States.

Because of that, they delegitimize the continued relevance of their own Political Party… so I will vote accordingly.

On the flip side of that, right now I can’t seem to come up with a list of 10 reasons why I should vote FOR the Democratic Party. Yes, the GOP is running on NO national agenda, other than to OPPOSE. Their dog whistles have now become blow horns. They champion causes that disturb the MAJORITY of Americans and they slow any attempt to further the causes of Social Justice and Equality, even as their party holds a MINORITY in Congress.

The Democrats can’t protect a Woman’s Right to CHOOSE. The Democrats can’t protect our Right to VOTE. A Police Officer murdered a man with his knee while he had his HANDS in his pockets… yet the Democratic Party can’t pass a Justice Reform Bill that has that man’s name on it.

ONE PARTY is doing everything they can to roll back the clock, denying us that More Perfect Union, while the OTHER PARTY can’t seem to tie their OWN SHOES. And when they lose this fall, they’ll say it’s all OUR fault… THE VOTERS.

I guess they’ll have to spend more MONEY on “voter education” next time around.

I have no desire to vote FOR the Democratic Party. They have NO AGENDA. No message. No unifying principle that defines who they are… other than pleasing their DONORS at all cost… and yet somehow they say, it’s not THEIR fault.

It’s the VOTERS’ fault. 

Yes, it is the voters’ fault… because we’ve allowed this BS to go on for way too long. The charade is UP. The jig is OVER… the “BIG LIE” walks hand-in-hand with the “BIG GRIFT” and we are ALL being taken for a RIDE.

The Democratic Party has become the Neville Chamberlain to the Republican Party’s Adolph Hitler. The President continues to seek bipartisan solutions to problems caused by the OTHER PARTY… while the other party won’t even recognize him as the legitimate President of the United States.

And why do we feel like it’s all our fault? WE VOTED! Just like they told us to.

But it always seems just out of reach… ‘Not this election, but the NEXT! Next time, with YOUR HELP… your financial support… we’ll get this DONE!

… tick tock tick tock…

Time passes, and the narrative rolls along.

The conversation moves on, and the crisis de jure dominates the front page. War. Terrorism. Climate change. Inflation. Jobs. Jobs. Jobs…

Same as it ever was. Same as it ever was.

The People haven’t moved on… the Politicians have. Leaving in their wake a mountain of DEBT. A heaping PILE of unfinished business and unresolved problems, many of which they’ve raised MONEY on while they were in office.

Don’t talk to me about being a PRO-CHOICE party if you can’t pass a bill protecting a Woman’s Right to Choose. If the ACA can continue to STAND because it’s seen as Congress exercising its power to levy TAXES, then there must be a legislative path forward that will secure the support of all 50 Democratic Senators.

Yet one Senator still stands opposed.

And NO ONE seems surprised! He’s just doing what his “constituents” want him to do. He works for the people he represents… THE DONORS.

This isn’t a story of US vs THEM. This is a story of preparedness. This is a story of an inability to anticipate the consequences of enforcement of rules and regulations. This is a story about the real-life impact bad government has on ALL our lives.

This is a story demonstrating how incompetent our government has become, as they can’t even get the SIMPLE THINGS right.

It’s as if we must TEACH our government how to WALK all over again.

I can SEE the problem, just as clearly as everyone else. We’re stuck with no alternatives. BOTH parties contributed to this crisis… and it’s not as if this crisis couldn’t have been anticipated.

It was the Federal Government that enforced the law, shutting down that producer. It was the Federal Government that failed to anticipate the downstream impact of shutting down only ONE PRODUCER… knowing that they produce 1/3 of our domestic supply of formula.

And it was the Federal Government that crafted the legislation, that turned a BLIND EYE to the rise of a monopolistic takeover of our FOOD SUPPLY.

From the FIELD to the TABLE. Every aspect of our agricultural industries, from production to logistics has been SLIMMED DOWN. Cutting the FAT. Leaving more meat on the BONE at the end of the day… for less mouths.

All we have to do is read the news and everyone can SEE it. It should have been a Presidential priority from DAY ONEWhere’s the Democratic Party? Where’s the party that supposedly represents our FARMERS… the GOP?

IF we assume that our legislators work for the DONORS, then it is clear that they are getting exactly what they want.

One party is BEHOLDEN to the DONORS while the OTHER party is hesitant to ACT, because it might scare away their DONORS… and that’s why nothing gets done.

They can’t FUNDRAISE on a problem that’s already been SOLVED.

Our two-party system is now BROKEN, and the parties will not seek to reform themselves. They continue to thrive on the dysfunction. They’ve become masters of the GAME they’ve created… and the losers of past political contests become the LEADERS of their party.

And so now we’ve come ‘round FULL CIRCLE. It was the ultimate catalyst that drove me to start my political endeavor back in February 2018, and the crisis continues to this day… unchanged.

And it’s all like variations on a theme… I swear I’ve heard this song before. The People demand it with their VOTE, but after the election the conversation starts to change.

The answers we seek as a Nation can be found… but only if we stand UNITED. As EQUALS. MY rights are not secure unless YOUR rights are secure. My Liberty is not secure unless your Liberty is secure as well…

And right now, neither Political Party is doing what’s necessary to secure our Democracy.

That needs to change.

The Will of The People

EFDB0385-FD63-41A5-A938-3097EF36AFDC

The recently leaked draft opinion in the case of  ‘Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health’, shows us that the rights of Women and Girls are not seen as Equal to those of Men by a majority of the Justices on our Supreme Court.

Their rights are transient. They’re subject to the whims of whomever holds office at any particular time, and they can be given or taken away as those officials see fit. There is no protection or guarantee. The author of that draft opinion sees women as merely a vessel, unworthy of Equal Standing under law.

Below is a copy of the email I sent this evening to President Joe Biden, asking him to call for the publication of the 28th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States.

None of us will truly be FREE… until all of us are.

With respect,

Mr. President… where are you? Talk about a legislative grand-slam! Right now, at your discretion… with your say so, we can begin celebrating the 28th Amendment to our Constitution!

How long must Equality wait?

Talk about monumental… that’s Walt Disney at the gates of Disney World right there! Open arms and silly hats for everyone.

It’s the realization of the core principle our Nation was founded upon… that we are ALL created Equal. Let there be NO DOUBT!

What President worth a damn wouldn’t want to see the fireworks display they’d put on for something like that? What President seeking RE-ELECTION in the 21st Century wouldn’t want to do all that they could to ensure Equality reigned supreme.

I won’t take up much of your time Sir, but I was reminded today of the relationship between Martin Luther King Jr. and John F. Kennedy; and how when History came calling… President Kennedy had no choice but to embrace it. One step closer to Equality, one step closer to realizing that Dream.

The fight for Civil Rights had to move forward. There was no more time for delay. He knew he had to start that process… if only they had what YOU have at your fingertips today.

OPINIONS. Everyone has one, you know the old saying… the ones that smell the worst are usually dropped by a lawyer. I’m surprised D.C. doesn’t smell more like Dodge City.

Two years ago, 38 of the 50 United States voted to ratify the 28th Amendment to the Constitution, recognizing Equality for Women and Girls. The requirements have been met.

“The time is always right to do the right thing…” and there is no better time to ACT than today. 76% of the States have spoken.

Listen to The People, Sir… let History sort out the rest.

On behalf of the 38 States that have voted for ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment… for the sake of every woman in this country; Mr. President, call for the publication of the 28th Amendment. Let Equality be the Law of this Land.

Now, and for all time.

The Cornerstone of Peace

In 1995, the Okinawa government erected a memorial monument named the Cornerstone of Peace in Mabuni, the site of the last fighting in southeastern Okinawa. The memorial lists all the known names of those who died in the battle, civilian and military, Japanese and foreign. As of June 2008, it contains 240,734 names including 382 Koreans.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Okinawa

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Downfall

The decision made by the United States of America to use the first nuclear weapon in a time of war… was made out of an intense desire for PEACE.

It wasn’t used to start a war. It wasn’t used to liberate another country. It wasn’t used in an act of aggression against a foreign country in an attempt to take away their land.

The Pacific Campaign that played out through the summer of 1945 proved to be some of the most horrific battles of the entirety of the Second World War. The People of the Empire of the Rising Sun demonstrated how far they were willing to go to secure their victory… and it would be at all costs.

Okinawa comes to mind. Where women and children took their own lives… rather than risk surrender to the advancing Allied Forces.

Millions of men, women, and children. ARMED. In defense of the Japanese Homeland. The invasion would have taken the lives of millions of American soldiers, as well as millions of Japanese civilians.

CF635C03-B5B0-4846-BF74-A15F36183F78https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Downfall 

That theoretical invasion of the Japanese mainland would have taken the lives of Russian soldiers as well. The participation of the Soviet Union in that strategy would have been essential to its success, just as it was in ending the European Conflict.

2D165A53-C0DE-45AB-B095-8A72BCB0D6C2A2A9FFD8-1ACA-4580-ACFF-E0AD8669ACC7https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soviet_invasion_of_Manchuria

Allied in a war, where we fought side-by-side with the Soviet Union. Engaged in a struggle, where we fought UNITED, in defense of modern civilization. Against Nazism and everything that resembles it. Against aggression… against true evil.

The United States and Russia. UNITED. Fighting together in a struggle for the survival of HUMANITY.

Three-quarters of a century later… our nations are not the same as they once were. These are not the countries our grandparents once knew, and nor should they be. That’s one of the lessons we’ve learned from that war. Things MUST change… or we will continue to suffer through the SAME THINGS.

Their country is not the same…

B823B4A4-C6D6-45C3-9D64-D43E287EBF83https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iraq_War

With time our values and ideals have CHANGED. We no longer see things as they once were. But no matter how many decades have passed, there is ONE overarching principle that will never change:

The People of the United States of America will never support or defend anyone aligned with the ideals of the Nazi Party.

Those organizations we’ve helped to develop and continue to support to this day, would never support or defend anyone aligned with the ideals of the Nazi Party.

The People of the United States of America STILL BELIEVE in the commitments established at the close of the Second World War, and we hold them as sacrosanct in furtherance of our foreign diplomacy.

I may be but ONE, but I know I speak for the MAJORITY when I say… we will not support any leader who has shown themselves to be in any way, a supporter of the ideals of the Nazi Party.

Once they’ve shown themselves to be, they are OUTCAST. Those values are not the values of a people who yearn to LIVE FREE. The Pursuit of Life, Liberty, and Happiness, as laid out in our Founding Documents, is unattainable under the rule of any leader adhering to the beliefs of the Nazi Party.

And the Armed Forces of the United States of America will continue to STAND READY to defeat those ideals… wherever they arise.

Just as they were in August of 1945.

A war, into which we were pulled kicking and screaming… we did not seek to start that conflict. We sought the means to bring it to an end.

To secure PEACE. Not just for ourselves… but for the Soviet Union as well. For ALL Humanity. For all of HISTORY, as it will be written for generations to come.

That chapter has now been written. Our great-grandchildren will learn of our struggles and see that our Alliance stood for Just Principles… for all time.

Today, we write what comes NEXT in that story.
Chapter and verse… it is ours to decide.

The People of the Russian Federation must know… they must be made to understand. In this moment, The United States will NOT utilize our first-strike capabilities. We decided long ago, that’s not what those weapons should be used for… they are a deterrent to war.

The United States of America will never START a Nuclear War…

… because we know how it would end.

The only winning move is… NOT to play.

I believe The People of the Russian Federation feel the SAME WAY…
Regardless of what their leaders might say.

That’s always been the biggest problem with embracing nuclear energy production… what do we do with all that WASTE? Thousands of tons of radioactive nuclear fuel sits cooling in spent fuel pools in every nuclear power facility across the globe. For thousands of years that fuel will be highly radioactive… where will it go? What will we do with it?

We can bury it. We can forget it. We can ignore it. But no matter what we decide to do with it, it will continue to cost us money… for centuries to come.

Thousands of tons of highly radioactive spent nuclear fuel… with nowhere to go. No one wants it… ‘not in MY backyard!’ No one has a permanent plan for it… so why not recycle some of it? Make some more useful fuel out of it and save some money in the process. No one seems to want it. I doubt anyone would mind if it just… disappeared.

One man’s TRASH is another man’s TREASURE.

It’s called ‘closing the loop’ on the nuclear fuel cycle. Instead of disposing of all that waste, some of it can be recycled and used again in a nuclear reactor. Not in the BOMBS, though. That requires the highly enriched material. The TOP SHELF supply… the GOOD STUFF.

And that GOOD STUFF is in short supply. Only a handful of locations on earth can produce highly enriched, weapons-grade nuclear material. Those nations who currently have a stockpile want to save all they can for use in their nuclear arsenals.

They wouldn’t want to go and waste the ‘good stuff’ on a single-use rocket engine… especially if they plan on making a lot of them.

When there’s short supply and high demand, someone has to find a new supply. Someone will find a way. If there’s money to be made, someone will make it… and TRILLIONS of dollars will motivate people to do, just about anything.

Yes, it may be ‘Rocket Science’… but it’s as easy to understand as the phrase ‘FOLLOW THE MONEY’.

They can see the writing on the WALL. They’re living in a dying petrostate. Oil is going the way of the dinosaur and they want a piece of the FUTURE. But, in essence… Nuclear Fission is energy of the PAST. Its time is UP.

We are currently working to unleash the Power of the SUN. And as it turns out… that energy is SAFER and CLEANER than anything we’ve ever seen before.

The Nuclear Age is now a relic of the PAST…

… and we will be dealing with the fallout of that era for many years into the future.

And what will they find when they get there? It’s already been widely reported that the Russian soldiers destroyed radiological monitoring stations around the site. They even dug trenches in the highly radioactive exclusion zone and then tracked that radioactive dirt back inside the facility, contaminating parts of the building that were already clean… what else did they do while they were there?

They have no respect for International Laws. They have no respect for the Ukrainians whose territory they’ve invaded. They don’t adhere to standards or follow established protocols to ensure safety…

We must brace ourselves and be prepared to find the worst-case scenario inside that building. The inspectors from the IAEA might get there… and find nothing at all.

What would be our response then.

There cannot be any appeasement. There must not be any appeasement… because there will never be any appeasement.

Vladimir Putin must withdraw all Russian forces from the entirety of Ukraine. These actions should not be rewarded in any way.

We do so at our own peril.

At Our Discretion

When the Law comes for me… I have no choice but to comply. There are no negotiations on the terms of my surrender. There is no ‘privilege’ that I could invoke that would deter an Officer of the Law. They simply ASSERT their authority, and I go where they tell me… advising me that I have the right to remain SILENT.

I have no choice but to comply.

It’s not that I don’t have OPTIONS… I just don’t have the MONEY required to exercise those options. I don’t have the funds necessary to secure legal counsel on retainer. I don’t have the legal connections or established rapport that would lead the Department to exercise prosecutorial discretion on my behalf.

They retain the right to do this to us all.

A system that favors those with MONEY over those WITHOUT. How much time and effort would be necessary, to transform that system into one that’s EMPOWERED by those with money… to go after those without.

One might say… that time has already arrived.

Amazon, here we come.” —President Joe Biden

Bluster and bravado haven’t worked when it comes to swaying the opinions of billionaires, hell-bent on total domination… my guess is, it won’t work out well for us in the future.

Amazon isn’t the culprit. They have legal teams that work every day to ensure they are following the LAW. The law… as written, by our Elected Officials.

What good does it do us to attack companies who are following the law, when we can just change the law and ensure stricter enforcement of laws that already exist.

Every part of our Legislative Branch is now BROKEN. Every aspect of it needs to be examined, and it’s been that way for YEARS. ‘But that’s just the way it is in DC…’ so why would anyone want it to CHANGE?

Why would anyone even want to TRY? Considering the depth of the problem and the SIZE of the reforms required. Attempting something so massive could endanger the Constitution itself  if we were to even try…

It seems to me, we’ve already reached that point if we do not ACT.

We must convince the naysayers. ‘We, The People…’ comes FIRST.

Without them, there is no ‘… United’.

It is now abundantly clear… the perception of what we have, and what it is we actually do have are two totally different things. We may be divided in PRACTICE, but we are not divided in PRINCIPLE. We do not stand divided.

The People of the United States of America are being divided… and it’s being done intentionally so.

Instead of focusing on the root of our problems, we’re laying blame at the feet of the other POLITICAL PARTY. Pointing fingers instead of finding common ground. We need to stop listening to talking heads and start SPEAKING OUT for ourselves.

Every one of us wants to “Stop Abortion”… but criminalizing a Medical Procedure will not stop abortions from happening.

My father once told me, ‘If you outlaw GUNS, only OUTLAWS will own GUNS.’

If we outlaw abortion, only “outlaws” will have access to abortion services… those with the financial means to do so. Those who can travel. Those who can afford to take time off from work… those who can have the nanny take care of the kids for the weekend.

LIVES are at stake. The lives of children AND the lives of the women who are forced to carry an unwanted pregnancy.

This subject demands CLARITY.

We must ask ourselves, what is it we are trying to accomplish? Are we trying to SAVE LIVES… or are we simply trying to deny the fundamental Human Rights of HALF of our society?

Because we already know how to save the lives of the unborn.

We ensure women have access to everything necessary to ensure a healthy and successful pregnancy. And until that day comes, when a woman CHOOSES to become a mother… they are a Human Being seeking Medical Care.

There should be no government-sponsored “Death Panels” involved in making our healthcare decisions… period.

If we let them dictate to us when it is we are ALLOWED to have a child,

We give them the legal precedent to tell us when it is we CANNOT.

There are NO LAWS restricting any aspect of my reproductive rights.
It should be the SAME for every American Citizen.
EQUALLY.

“The sacred defense of the Reproductive Liberty of ALL People being Our Common Duty, the Right of a Woman to Choose shall be protected.”

We need a CLEAN BREAK. We need a FRESH START. We need to find a way forward without ignoring the harm that has been done. We can go on about punishing everyone who has lived their lives adhering to false premises… being taught falsehoods as TRUTH, when in reality they were really LIES…

Or, we can forge a new understanding… reestablish what it is our Constitution actually means. ‘THIS is what we once believed… as a society, as a PEOPLE. But now those beliefs are NO MORE.’

We choose to CLARIFY what it is we stand FOR…

“… with Liberty and Justice for ALL.”

Is that what we STILL believe?

Then let us ensure that there is NO DOUBT.
