What Is Buttigieg Trying To Say - In Fact IS Saying - Out On The West Coast



      Caught up on campaigning on the west coast and not appreciating his words will be read and appreciated by every registered voter nationwide. Sure and certain all Dems will appreciate him calling into question their affirmative support for Bernie?

      What does Buttigieg, who has been a mayor for eight years - think Bernie does day in and day out on behalf of the people. Sanders is too busy engaged working on domestic and foreign policy - not trying to blow up the nation - to care, I would imagine what you think about his daily workings as a US Senator. But heck - let's hear Buttigieg appreciate on a daily basis while Sanders is campaigning and proposing changes on the floor of the US Senate - how checked out reality Sanders is in all of our lives? With Trump as President - credit Sanders- he didn't wilt away. He didn't stop being a people's champion. Bernie has remaied HOPEFUL regarding change, the same kinds of change Obama opined about. Never abandoning any of that. That's why supporters flock to him. Not to blow up the nation.

      What does he think his supporters do every day - in between elections. We are not trumpsters - looking for angles and trying to take down the government. We are supporters of rights, protecters of the government - champions for the people. We are not the enemy, Buttigieg. We are registered Democrats whose membership in our party goes back for some of us - longer than you have been a registered voter, longer than you have been alive - literally. Whoa there, Pete. Is that how you intend to debate Sanders in a couple months? Good luck with that. Good luck with shutting up the free opinions of registered Democrats too. Millions of us in blue and red states who aren't agenda lead to hurt our nation - we actually do - want to fix it. Thanks but no thanks at the name calling, Pete. It's been real nice (and insightful) hearing from you.

      Election Meddling. Is American Rage And Angst Justified<:)?


          In this day and age of endless, obsessive and rancorous debate, and nervous breakdowns, occasioned by Russian interference in the America electoral process, a sane person inquires into similar behavior on the part of the U.S., wondering if US deserves to play the part of poor, innocent victim. Results of the inquiry, being previously well recorded, are sobering...

          The U.S. has a long and stunning history of attempting, sometimes subtly, sometimes violently, to influence foreign presidential elections. A 2016 study by Dov Levin* found that, among 938 global elections examined, the United States and Russia combined had involved themselves in about one out of nine (11%), 68% of those covertly. The same study found that "on average, an electoral intervention in favor of one side contesting the election will increase its vote share by about 3 percent," an effect large enough to have potentially changed the results in seven out of 14 U.S. presidential elections occurring after 1960. According to the study, the U.S. intervened in 81 foreign elections between 1946 and 2000, while the Soviet Union or Russia intervened in 36. A 2018 study by Levin found that the electoral interventions determined in "many cases" the identity of the winner. The study also found suggestive evidence that the interventions increased the risk of democratic breakdown in the targeted states.

          *Dov H. Levin. Assistant Professor, Department of Politics and Public Administration, The University of Hong Kong. Author: “A Vote for Freedom? The Effects of Partisan Electoral Interventions on Regime Type.” in the Journal of Conflict Resolution.
          September 7, 2016

          Bags of cash delivered to a Rome hotel for favored Italian candidates. Scandalous stories leaked to foreign newspapers to swing an election in Nicaragua. Millions of pamphlets, posters and stickers printed to defeat an incumbent in Serbia.

          The long arm of Vladimir Putin? Nah, just a small sample of the United States’ subversions of foreign elections.

          Anti-Russia, too? Sure. Aleksei Navalny (Russian lawyer, right-wing activist a few years older than Venezuelan Guaido), though arrested and jailed numerous times, this political opponent of Vladimir V. Putin, had received grants from the National Endowment for Democracy. In fact, an organization employing him received one $23,000 grant from the endowment in 2006, which he used to set up his anti-corruption foundation. Navalny, a Washington favorite, was found guilty in February of 2017 of embezzling $500,000 worth of timber from Russian state-owned timber company Kirovles while working as a volunteer. Prior to that, Navalny was convicted of defrauding $440,000 from a cosmetics company in 2014. Yet, despite all that, according to the New York Times, “Mr. Navalny is a charismatic anti-corruption campaigner "...............................

          And Putin. Is he a demon in 2016, or is he just exercising a bit of payback? God knows Washington has made life difficult for Russia in recent years, and never missed an opportunity to paint Putin in a bad light.

          Following is a short list of US interventions in other countrys' Democracies etc. as compiled by political scientist Levin.
          Even after the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991, the U.S. continued its interventions abroad, including elections in Israel, former Czechoslovakia, and again Russia in 1996, Levin found. Since 2000, the U.S. has attempted to sway elections in Ukraine (Paul Manafort, John McCain and John Kerry), Kenya, Lebanon, and Afghanistan, among others. Currently, Venezuela is the shining example of American attempt to vassalize a country whose Democracy doesn't meet the approval of Washington, i.e., a country who refuses Washington corporate unfettered access to its oil and gold. Without Russia and China, Venezuela would by now be in ruins, as are Syria and Yemen. Yemen. America has maintained military involvement in Yemen since 2003, 16 years and counting.


          This pretty map shows the results of a 2013 (pre-Trump) WIN/Gallup International survey asking people which country they felt was the greatest threat to world peace.

          According to the survey results:
          The US was the overwhelming choice (24% of respondents) for the country that represents the greatest threat to peace in the world today. This was followed by Pakistan (8%), China (6%), North Korea, Israel and Iran (5%).

          Respondents in Russia (54%), China (49%) and Bosnia (49%) were the most fearful of the US as a threat.

          Here's What To Know About The Easter Sunday Blasts In Sri Lanka


              Faux News is going to go all in with the "war on christianity". The comments on the articles are already whining about liberals and their alleged refusal to talk about Islamic extremism. Actually, they may be right about this issue because it seems to me that a lot of liberals have become apologists for Islam in their PC quests.

              Is it too soon to talk about the religious components here? Is it possible that these bombings are retaliation for New Zealand? I'm not going to go with the 'where was your god' memes, but it's obvious that thoughts and prayers haven't stopped any of the violence.

              Religion is the bane of enlightened civilization, both can't exist at the same time. I choose secular progressivism.

              What is known about the perpetrators?

              An official told AP that two of the blasts were suspected to have been carried out by suicide bombers. Nobody has stepped forward to claim responsibility. Defense Minister Ruwan Wijewardena, told the AP that seven suspects were in custody.

              News agency AFP says it has seen documents that show that Sri Lankan police have been on the alert for several days, fearing that suicide bombers from a local radical Muslim group, the National Thowheeth Jama’ath (NTJ) were targeting prominent churches.

              AFP also reported that Sri Lankan police seized a haul of explosives and detonators in January after arresting four men “from a newly formed radical Muslim group.”

              A number of Sri Lankan Muslims were known to have joined ISIS in Syria, according to Reuters.

              IQ Tests May Be Worthless! What Is The True Measure Of "Smartness"?


                  Being a card-carrying Mensan, I can claim a bit of knowledge about IQ and IQ tests. I'm also not too impressed by the concept. That said, in the area of Learning, which includes both academic and non-academic Learning, response to Teacher is the only metric worthy of investigation. Teacher? There is only one true teacher, it is called Life, and its method is Trial and Error. It has a toolbox consisting of the questions Who, What, Which "x", When, Where, How, and Why, and a range of dosages of reward (pleasure) and punishment (pain). No one person is smarter or less smart than any other person. What separates people one from another is

                  1. individuals' memory (ability and tendency to recall _____ ) and imagination, both imminently corrupted or enhanced by person-to-person association (human interaction);

                  2. individual usage of trial and error (choices and decisions);

                  3. individual recognition of and response to pleasure and pain (consequences of action/non-action).

                  There are people unable to feel pain (congenital analgesia); there are people addicted to pleasure -- each person exists somewhere along that continuum. Life is Carrot-and-Stick; Pleasure-and-Pain, then we die, just like all other "life forms". It couldn't be more simple.
