Of course, the countries that will avoid charging this global price will also have the highest growth rates.

Rosa Luxemburg had it right: socialism or barbarism.

@Cassiodorus MicrosoftMatrix365(C)(TM) I can imagine it in my arteries already. "You will be eternally MicroTaxed and like it." UP THUMB(TM) cough cough ka-ching!

Glad to be old is how I feel right now. Nothing left in these dried up veins for the billogarchy to suck, just crazy talk that's I all I got. Good luck to the future. doh

@humphrey I am only quoting a bit of it.

https://www.reviewjournal.com/news/politics-and-government/nevada/whitme...

Three other progressives running alongside Whitmer captured four of the other officer positions during the election, which was held during a virtual meeting of the state party’s central committee. Whitmer received 248 votes to Segerblom’s 216 for the chair position.

Jacob Allen (first vice-chair), Dr. Zaffar Iqbal (second vice-chair) and Ahmed Ade (secretary) were also elected on Whitmer’s “progressive” slate. Lance Arberry (treasurer) was the lone winner for Segerblom’s “progressive unity” slate, defeating Howard Beckerman by two votes.

While Segerblom enjoyed support from prominent local, state and federal elected officials, Whitmer has spent years organizing and encouraging young progressives to serve on the very state central committee that elected her. She was endorsed by the state party’s Left Caucus, which she founded, and the local chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America.

The central committee, and the party itself, has grown younger and more progressive in the years since Sen. Bernie Sanders’ close 2016 defeat and clear 2020 victory in the state’s First in the West presidential caucuses. Whitmer and others worked to organize those Sanders’ volunteers and delegates into central committee members.

Sanders congratulated Whitmer in a statement Saturday evening.

No opening the doors early without informing people, then refusing to seat Bernie supporters when they show up at the appointed time?

This isn’t the Dem party I know and LoVe…

@humphrey @humphrey

but how is it a good idea to try to set up shop basically inside the enemy's house? Obviously, they know the house better than you (it's theirs), and they're the ones with the access to the bank accounts (and probably have their own crooked CPAs to move funds around as is most convenient). And if that's true in terms of almost half a mil being transferred out of the NV state party apparatus, what's it going to be like when it's a question of elections? Progressives would have to at least sweep the NV state government in order to control the state elections infrastructure (if it's anything like it is here in FL). Until that is done, it's going to continue to be the same old fight. If they control the elections apparatus, they can cheat.

It's not like the NV Democratic Party likely means anything to Reid et al, any more than the United States does. All such organizations and ideas ultimately are just dispensable conveniences that allow them to move money and votes around. Of course they'll just work around the organization.

EDIT: Maybe it would be enough for progressives to simply get the Governorship and Nev Sec of State. I don't know if the legislature could be a significant problem if the progs got the Nev Executive Branch.

I'm sure someone here offered that link before now, thanks. It's good for my head to review it every now and then, I made a copy for offline just in case I need it when the PissPiss hits this year. PSPS Public Safety Power Shutdown, they are annual events from here on out I think. hope not
OIC it is an archive.is link to Whole Earth Review, Spring 1995, thanks lotlizard? It's a good one.

Handy tips on how to behave at the death of the world

[...]
Eschew blandness. Eschew causing other's pain. We are all the target so wear bright colors and dance with those you love. Falling in love has always been a bit too much to apply to one person. Falling in love is appropriate for now, to love all these things which are about to leave. The rocks are watching, and the squirrels and the stars and the tired people in the street. If you love them, let them know, with grace and non-invasive extravagance. Care about the beings you care about in gorgeous and surprising ways. Color outside the lines. Practice random kindness and senseless acts of beauty. This is your last chance.

I have been on my "last chance" for twenty-six years since 1995. wonder not

whether it's dead from climate change or nuclear war, and "The Great Reset" isn't actually going to prevent either.
