1/ As the tsunami around the Trump clan engulfs them, us masses need to begin to focus not on their futures, but on our own. Today, the Catherine Austin Fitts interview awaken an insight about why misanthropes dominate Congress instead of retiring to spend their ill-gotten gains.
2/ Why does the #duopoly continue to keep company with the bankers, continue to reward the offal of political advisors, continue to act like they have no constituencies outside of elections? Why? @TheSolariReport suggests they have been promised something money can't buy.

1/ Here in the #TwitterSphere, a deluge of toxic noise often prevents us from seeing what's right in our face. #TheAssault on @jimmy_dore, for example. #TheThing I missed was the focus on his #anger.
2/ I missed it b/c it was familiar. #ADOS are constant victims of similar assault for justified anger. We get killed by cops, discipline in schools for expressing our JUSTIFIED anger. Americans should be extremely angry right now. Like Jimmy, I find that truly perplexing.

1/ I awoke this afternoon with the thought that #Remorse is too often associated with compassion and conscience. Even psychopaths can have remorse...for evil failures or inaction. So, I decided to look it up...in the dictionary. 2/ If you noticed that I said "this afternoon" it's because in winter my body clock gets turned on its head. It started after midnight this year as we crossed the time divide into the 1st day. I have not adjusted it w/melatonin, as I'm on a very productive ride at the moment.

Back on @SceneOnRadio listening to Episode 5 of Season 3 Men. The topic is #sexism in the workplace. How bad is it? If you have not listened to this podcast series before, you should give it a hearing.
The question of how bad sexism is in the workplace has been answered. It's bad in every aspect. The workplace in the US is a minefield operating within a culture of intolerance and inherent male privilege. #MustListen

If you are wondering what you can do to keep youngsters busy during this extended vacay, how about working with them to learn #Linux, an OpenSource [free] operating system with lots of other awesome free software for kids AND their parents for personal and professional growth. /1
Linux is not a single system, but a host of other "flavors" built upon the original Linux kernel. Two of the most popular for "newbies" has to be @Ubuntu and @Linux_Mint. I use both systems. In fact, today I'm configuring a new generation AMD4 computer w/ a Ryzen processor. /2

This has been going on for decades. I have been uprooted by eminent domain on 2 occasions. Interstate construction from one end of the country to the other uprooted BIPOC communities in every state. #ModelCities partly a real estate scheme to take prime land from BIPOC. 1/
2/ Gentrification has been financed beginning with Reagan with funds directed towards the national security state. Israelis, Pakistanis, Saudis have taken these funds and bought houses, built mini-malls, anchored by unified gas stations/convenience stores/laundrymats.

1/ Today, I lost a favorite tool, a #foodchopper that was used for preparing nutrients for my #compost. I found it at a yard sale for $1. Ever try to replace a friend w/such low maintenance. It ain't e-z. #SuchIsLife In looking for another, I'm going to share some sage advice.
2/ 1st, this is what one looks like, but I'm not spending this much for a tool used to recycle waste from my kitchen. No, I plan to use this one for my own food and retire another to the compost team. The key is the number of offset blades. You want 3, not 2 as my old one did.

1/ Today, a day before the mid-terms, I'm thinking of my grandmother. As a young boy, one of my most vivid memories was attending my grandmother's funeral, standing between my mother and father.
2/ More people than I had ever seen in church or anywhere else other than a parade attended, white and black, SRO, overflow, watching through windows. I could not believe that so many ppl loved my grandmother as I did.
