Red America remains a boss's country; some working people just live there.

Yep.

"The core responsibility assigned to governments in democracies is the public welfare, protecting the human birthright to basic needs: clean air, water, land, and a place to live, under equitable rules of access to all common property resources. It is astonishing to discover that major political efforts in democracies can be turned to undermining the core purpose of government, destroying the factual basis for fair and effective protection of essential common property resources of all to feed the financial interests of a few. These efforts, limiting scientific research on environment, denying the validity of settled facts and natural laws, are a shameful dance, far below acceptable or reputable political behavior. It can be treated not as a reasoned alternative, but scorned for what it is – simple thievery." —George M. Woodwell, Woods Hole Research Center founder

This thievery is not so astonishing when you discover that what we have here is a Fascist Oligarchy with a clever perception management pretense of "democracy".

One must know how to color one’s actions and to be a great liar and deceiver.  – Niccolo Machiavelli

The following is small part of long ranty screed I wrote back in 2016, after the Presidential (s)election. As I used to write on a form I was given, long ago, when I arrived at the doctor's office to get my annual required FAA Air Traffic Controller medical exam, NO CHANGE SINCE LAST REPORT:

The sad fact is that the US Government is now fully fascist and will proceed to ignore every clean air, soil and water regulation on behalf of the fossil fuel industry and other polluters from the pharmaceutical and chemical industries.

Also, the entire social contract that has been laboriously built up by people of good will since the time of FDR up to and including civil rights gains for people of color and healthcare for all Americans during the LBJ Administration will be deliberately and methodically destroyed piece by piece.

Every step in the dismembering of the social contract that will cause the unnecessary misery and the death of millions of Americans will be given an Orwellian label. For example, the Ryan plan to DEFUND the Affordable Care Act (i.e. Obamacare) is cynically called a "rescue", when in fact it is a death sentence. This nihilistic cynicism is part and parcel of the fascist regressive modus operandi now only slightly less prevalent in the Democratic Party wing of the duopoly as in the Republican in-your-face fascist wing.

More wealth transfer from the poor and middle class of all colors to the rich is what the Trump Administration is all about, as well as more pollution, more sickness, and more rampant racist brutality.

Plutocratic greed is destroying America. This will end VERY badly.

Fast forward to 2018 and the "Democratic" victory in the House of (Overwhelmingly Corporate) Representatives:

Nearly ZERO support for a GREEN NEW DEAL 👉CHECK



March 21, 2019 UPDATE:


April 11, 2020 COVID-19 Shock Doctrine Corporate Swag plus Pollutors Run Wild (in addition to Surly's post 👍 above) 👉 UPDATE:

The chaos will eventually end but life will not be the same. A system that is inherently antagonistic to human needs is unlikely to return the few public benefits we had left. Disaster capitalism is quite real.

The oligachy’s rule over government is obvious and can no longer be kept hidden. And they are really, really STUPID PEOPLE.
