After six years, still getting robo-calls from Marriot Hotels.
They're like herpes.

@earthling1 to where I'm at on this day of celebrating revolution. Maybe I'm trying to figure out why I can't just be a fucking normal person and vote for their duopoly like they tell me to and think how they want me to think. I had to go all the way back to Ireland and Norway, now it makes sense.

as independence from tyranny and yet considering revolution now, a real revolution, not the fake one back then, is largely met with ridicule, even scorn. Part of how we've been trained and conditioned to reject anything the deciders have decided we must do. It's like 9/11 or the JFK murder, the deciders have decided we must not talk about 9/11 or the JFK murder. So we don't.

It's the decoder rings that have gone bad.
Can't read mine anymore.

Regardless of the path in life I chose, I realize it's always forward, never straight.

…if it was at all disruptive to the status quo and started changing public consciousness. WE didn't militarize our local police departments for nothing.

Back then, we revolted for self-determination. WE don't believe in that anymore. Just ask the Crimeans or the ethnic Russian majority population of East Ukraine. They'll tell you. WE didn't install a NeoNazi government there, for nothing.

What do you mean by "a real revolution?"

@Pluto's Republic For most it wasn't independence, it was just a change in who ruled them. The human race has never truly confronted the issue of rule by the rich or wealthy.

@Big Al were using the guillotine. And the Russians when they overthrew the Czar.

The Romanov Solution.
It strikes abject fear in the aristocracy.

The New York Times prints an interview with Chomsky. His writing is right in step with CC99, right down to the shenanigans of the Clinton team to stop Bernie.

He says our two greatest dangers from the Trump regime are climate change and nuclear conflict.

So, the same as the Clinton regime? Still wondering how many Jill Stein votes were flipped...

Psychopathy is not a political position, whether labeled 'conservatism', 'centrism' or 'left'.

A tin labeled 'coffee' may be a can of worms or pathology identified by a lack of empathy/willingness to harm others to achieve personal desires.

@MarilynW

He says our two greatest dangers from the Trump regime are climate change and nuclear conflict.

Any different with Clinton? Though Trump is against use of reason on climate.

We may not have much time left to f**k around. It really sucks that these people can destroy us all. Big error in our organization.

I am afraid we will not make it.
boy oh boy.

You would have noticed that he called the "Democrats" Republicans.

It's easy to "shoot from the hip" when you don't really see the target.

about reforming dem party than many c99ers.

refers to the "success of Sanders campaign" as the most important event of election year.
say the dem party "can be rebuilt as a progressive force".

many here would say that the crushing of Sanders movement by the Party was the take-away lesson.

my original comment was snark,really. Furthermore Chomsky never says clinton would have been better on foreign poicy.

don't see your point really.
by the way I don't find a "dems are repubs" quote.
