Is it legal for Congress to #default on the US #NationalDebt? It depends on who you ask. There are a ton of good legal arguments for and against, so perhaps it comes down to what the (degraded, corrupt, illegitimate, partisan) #SupremeCourt says?…

In those terms, it seems like the game is over. #Biden should just surrender, hand the most extreme wing of the (degraded, corrupt, illegitimate, authoritarian) #GOP everything, even if doing so will push Biden's approval rating lower, dangerously close to the next election.

The Story of Race is a Story of Labor. In fact, most Europeans colonized North America for land and economic opportunities, not for religious freedom. There was no concept of race at that time. People identified by country of origin not by skin color. #WhiteSavior doc thread 🧵:
In 1676, enslaved Africans joined with European indentured servants in a large rebellion against the colonial government in Virginia. #WhiteSavior
Alarmed by the natural alliance between the indentured and enslaved, the ruling class passed a series of laws that segregated and permanently enslaved those of African descent, while also giving their European counterparts new rights and status. #WhiteSavior

I still believe that our country would not be in the current state of division had HRC won the presidency in ‘08. Conservative backlash against a Black #POTUS fueled the rise of #FormerGuy and pushed #TodaysGOP to out themselves as The #AmericanNaziParty. That said, he is still
the best #POTUS we’ve had during my lifetime! @BillClinton is definitely a strong runner-up, and I believe @HillaryClinton may well have been the best #POTUS since #FDR and his astonishing #NewDeal which, had he lived to fully implement, might very well have accelerated

Por tener perspectiva, en el último siglo EE UU ha sobrevivido a presidentes que fueron forzados a dimitir por mentir: Nixon, que además se presentó prometiendo cerrar la guerra de Vietnam (veníamos desastre LBJ), y lo que hizo fue intensificar la contienda.
Y para mí no es el peor: #Wilson fue presidente siendo miembro del KKK (hablamos del s.XX), es también el presidente de la Ley Seca que fue un acicate estúpido al contrabando, las mafias y la violencia en todo el país. Un desastre también en lo int. (idealista sin ideales).
Curiosamente el presidente más proto-fascista de USA es uno de los más admirados (con un relato histórico mejor construido): #Roosevelt. Un populista demagogo, ganó las elecciones por el buen uso del Twitter de su época: la radio; luego incumplió todo lo que prometió.

#BlackWeek der politischen Sprache. Und des Entwendens. Hier historisch und doch aktuell und frisch verhashtagged aus der trend onlinezeitung zum ä Green New Deal Green:

Konflikt bei #SMA
Kein #NewDeal für #ZeitarbeiterInnen

von Peter Lenz
Im September 2011 feierte die Firma „SMA Solar Technology“ 30jähriges Firmenjubiläum. Fast wie bei #Apple ranken sich Legenden um ihre Entstehung. Elektrotechnik-Studenten gründeten eine Firma, die sich auf die Herstellung von Wechselrichtern für Solaranlagen
spezialisiert, die - vereinfacht gesagt - Solar-Gleichstrom für Wechselstromnetze verfügbar machen. SMA hat in den letzten Jahren bemerkenswerte Umsatz- und Profitsprünge gemacht. Ein Vorsteuergewinn von über 27% liegt noch über Ackermanns 25%-Träume hinaus.

So the race has now been called for Biden, and it looks like that call will hold. Many Trump supporters believe that Biden's victory was due to massive fraud/malfeasance, and that's possible - some stuff does seem quite dodgy, and there's certainly...
...been a lack of transparency.

The spectacle that we've seen over the past several days has been, as @ggreenwald puts it, an utter disgrace:

Banana republic stuff!

There's no good reason why the richest & most powerful country in the world shouldn't... able to count its votes in a timely and transparent way that EVERYONE can trust and have faith in - regardless of whether or not THEIR SIDE is winning.

And you can bet that millions of Biden voters would be screaming that it wasn't legit now too, if Trump were winning!

New death tax revealed for Queensland: Clive Palmer

The Palaszczuk Government was discussing a new death tax to be imposed on Queenslanders if returned to power.

The Qld Labor Govt would justify the new tax to combat its $120bn debt blowout.

Under a returned Labor Govt, we will see family assets taken by the state. Our children & grandchildren will have assets chiselled out from them after hard efforts and endeavours of those before them
“I stood with Sir Joh Bjelke-Petersen when he abolished the death tax in Queensland and we saw the immediate wealth created for the state when people from Victoria and New South Wales fled the Labor states for Queensland.

The #GreatDepression and Roosevelt’s #NewDeal are very precious historical treasures, of enduring significance to future generations as to avoid great depressions, carry out relief programs,reinvigorate economy &implement reforms.Key measures for the current crisis may include:
1. Maintaining credit growth and preventing deflation are cure for avoiding severe depression. The excessive tightening of credit led to the Great Depression, which ended following the restoration of credit, and economy could not recover from the Great Depression without help.

People trying to draw analogies with the #GreatDepression, wartime, or 70s stagflation are missing the point IMHO 1/x
GD was a ‘sudden-stop’ shock which ended the credit-boom lending to Weimar as the Young Plan looked in jeopardy. Made worse by politics (war debts, etc), #protectionism (Smoot-Hawley), Hoover call to maintain wage-rates, #FX chaos (esp. when Brits left #gold standard) 2/x
The initial slump & ‘secondary (financial vicious cycle) depression’ then perpetuated by #NewDeal boondoggle vote-buying, #FDR capriciousness, & Brain Trust cranks. This was much more a post-#GFC parallel than today’s #ContaminoBay #lockdown 3/x
