    This year is nearly over and what a year it was. I thought 2020 was bad but 2021 was quite the encore. For me it was hard, no, impossible most of the time to walk the Eightfold Path. Right Speech was the hardest. I cannot keep my mouth shut when I see humans acting like dicks to other sentient beings and that goes double for humans who are supposed to have our best interests at heart. I am talking about our elected officials. This year has been an eye opener for me. The ones who are supposed to be impartial when it comes to reporting the news have helped spread misinformation, fear, division and outright censorship of any type of robust dialogue. In the 66 years that I have been alive, I have not witnessed such divisiveness since the late 60s. This time it's worse, much worse. The good thing is that the veil of deception is being lifted. The “owners of this country” (as George Carlin liked to say) are no longer hiding their behavior. They are crooked. They are greedy. They will do whatever it takes to get what they want. How many times have we heard both parties say we need money out of politics? We need term limits. And blah, blah, blah. Nothing gets done. Nothing changes. They play good cop (the dems) vs bad cop (the repubs) but they are both cops. It's one big scam and we are the mark. All of us. This is why I am angry. One of my college professors told us decades ago, “Media doesn’t tell us what to think, they tell us what to think about.” I think they now do both. Look at social media. Look how easy it is to get humans to tweet and/or repost information that has not been researched or verified? Social media makes it easier to control opinions. Censorship is alive and well in 2021. Tweet or post something that goes against the establishment's narrative and get a “time-out” or banned altogether. I am against censorship. Period. I recently found this Monty Python clip which reminded me of how humans on social media are today. https://youtu.be/yp_l5ntikaU In the 90s I attended a school board meeting in a city where there was a large population of ultra conservative Christians. They wanted the book. “Where the Sidewalk Ends”, written by Shel Silverstein, banned from the school library. Why? They didn’t like his poems and stories. Especially about the little girl witch Halloween story, and (get this) he looked like the devil. I had not witnessed such craziness in my adult life. These parents were really freaked out about a kid's book. In the end, the book stayed but I am willing to bet any copies mysteriously disappeared before the school year was over. What is happening now reminds me of those crazy parents and how the elected officials with the help of mainstream media are fueling the fires. Keeping us divided. Common sense has all but disappeared. There hardly is anyone stopping to think and asking questions. It shocks me. I used to write for an online progressive blog until last September. I questioned the mandates. I did my research. I included articles from (at least back then) reliable resources who exposed companies track records. Companies who were in charge of our health. I was called a Trumper. How the Hell someone came up with that conclusion after reading my article is beyond me. I wanted to write a follow up which included information about private support groups where people who were harmed by the you-know-what could go. The editor said no. Not only was I now considered a Trumper, but an anti-vaxxer. None of his arguments made sense. The funny thing is that we met during the Occupy Movement. He considers himself to be progressive except when it comes to thinking for himself. So this brings me back to my original thought. It is harder for me to walk the Eightfold Path. I think some things cannot be hugged out. They require vigorous debate that includes evidence to support one's opinions or in this case, mandates. Our system is clearly broken. We keep voting in the same old humans who are greedy. They have learned to tell people what they want to hear and as soon as they are sworn, it is business as usual. In 2008, I volunteered at a campaign office to help get Obama elected. I believed his promises. I believed in his vision. Then he took office and he turned out to be like the rest of them. He was not as bad, but he followed orders from the ones who own this country. Now I am with George Carlin. I will remain cynical until I see change. Meaningful change.

    LOL bruh are you serious?

    The Fake News Washington Post posted this headline and article

    Putting all politics aside (left or right), this claim is just laughable.

    Wow. Just wow.  #WashingtonCOMpost

    I need to stop reading sites like Instagram and the head-empty vapid nonsense there, because it turns me into a grouch who wants to rant about how absolutely fuckstupid some people are.

    I have to keep reminding myself that this is not what normal people push and society is not like this offline. That people in these online spaces say such stupid shit and create these offensive faux-oppression because they're privileged and are hijacking real issues that real people face offline.

    Still pisses me off, though.

    #monetising anti-science is already annoying but knowing they push this to impressionable kids on social media is obnoxious #it's a racist and anti-feminist death cult skinwalking as 'progressive' #if it ever becomes mainstream in actuality we are so fucked lmfao it's the leftist version of flat earthers

    is it wrong for me to be uncomfortable with blacktober artists changing canonically asian characters to black?

    #i understand why they do it but i also don’t #because ​it’s not the same as editing a white character #because you’re taking the very little representation asians have in mainstream western media #it’s counterproductive isn’t it? #opinions and commentary #please educate me if i’m wrong

    Be Courageous: You Know More Than You Think

    Be Courageous: You Know More Than You Think

    Recently, a friend sent a response to my last posting on the Kyle Rittenhouse affair. My article had argued that the mainstream media (MSM) revealed its laziness, bias, and mendacity by misrepresenting the facts of Rittenhouse’s actions as well as of his trial. In doing so, it led the public to believe that Rittenhouse lived in an Illinois location far distant from Kenosha Wisconsin, that he had…

    This woman is so strong sharing her story. Signal boost to stay aware of what could happen.. we need to speak up and stand out ground over our rights and freedom. “You feel like you’re in prison. You feel like you’re doing something wrong.”

    I’ve read the text of a few of these laws, and while in the short term they’ve allowed bookburners and racists to get their foot in the door on education (which social media should be talking about more), yeah.

    The “debate” around “CRT,” the media needs to start calling it what it is, adults trying to censor what information kids have access to. It’s censorship and moral policing by regressive suburbanites. We have parents on tape and in print saying “I don’t want my kids learning about MLK” and the news is like 54% of white people say they don’t want kids to learn about the history of racism hurdy dur they’re so racist Fox News is pulling quotes from mediocre opinion pieces we’ve published to show how antiracists are crazy we in no way are responsible for stoking political division in this race-to-the-bottom of political content.

    “Look at how crazy the other guys are! Ignore the neo-nazi we can’t make money from stuff you get for free on social media. Isn’t this country in decline, has irreparable damage been done? We can’t make money from in depth pieces on policies and organizations that cause real change, but we can sell doom and gloom to cultivate a sense of helplessness and hopelessness to keep you doomscrolling. Ignore the hypocrisy from elected officials, except when the other guy does it. Ignore the mass dissatisfaction from parents over COVID closures and their kids falling behind, and how the Right is capitalizing on it by giving them a punching bag. We sell the story, can’t milk a cow you slaughter for its meat. Why get down to bones of issues!”

    Sidenote: moms an elementary school teacher, a good one, a her bosses keep asking her to get certified to work with the extra crazy not-allowed-to-hold-pencils-unsupervised level good, they do teach “CRT” schools, not the CRT the Blue Team News talks about the stupid-level CRT the Red Team News talks about, the dumb time-wasting kind where everyone’s asked to confess their racism and the instructional material is written by someone who obviously hasn’t worked work with children. The dumb kind Blue Team News sells merch for.

    In the wake of the post-TrayvonTamir post-2016 “racial reckoning” a cottage industry (and industry standard) popped up to cater to the demand placed on schools and other institutions to demonstrate their civic engagement. Renaming buildings and paying someone to host a professional development seminar is a great fig leaf that doesn’t actually do anything.

    Does the Red Team get blame for fanning culture war flames and manufacturing a moral panic? Yes. But it was good politics, from the Team that let’s neo nazis and the KKK sit with them, and convinced your crazy uncle a book about gender and sexuality is part of a Marxist conspiracy to infiltrate America. And Blue Team is serving its own monetary interests by making the story about Red Team News, and not try to appeal to and dissect the nerve they struck and why it has voter traction. Which lets neo nazis get their foot in the door and normalizes their participation in American politics. One thinks its okay to have white supremacists at the table, and the other is okay with sitting next to a table where there’s a guy wearing KKK robes.

    GOD i miss talking about books

    #i run two bookselling businesses in two different countries #you would think i got to talk about books #but how do i explain it #it's... different #when you're trying to sell a book to a customer #and have to take into account things like professionalism and mainstream taste #and (in the case of the bookselling biz in malaysia) whether or not the person is probably okay with gay stuff or not #i was scrolling thru a dating app earlier and first of all i know. i know #but everyone's bios here are either 'uhuhu hmu if you're dtf 😏' #or 'i'm into femmes just want a cute hot gf with long hair' #and i'm like #listen pal #all i want is to sit down with someone at a cafe or sth #and talk for eight hours about how much i love natalie diaz's poetry #or how in the dream house is a brilliant experiment in form #or the wlw subtext in like 90% of literature written by women in the 19th century #not just books actually now that i think about it #i just miss talking about media in general #the new dune is fucking amazing and i have critiques but by god i love it!!! #i've always hc'ed kate bishop as mixed race asian so casting hailee steinfeld in the disney+ series was yet another letdown #in a string of disappointments that the mcu has been for me ever since aou!!! #i want to listen for eight hours too #about whatever your latest hyperfixation or interest is #just #banging my head against a wall for lack of intellectual conversation and stimulation i guess
