The brainwashing of Americans is breathtaking

Since the inception of the USA it has been engaged in the abuse and all out war against others.
Whether it be the Native Americans, slavery, attacks on the third world to extract natural resources, and of course the middle east.

But yet somehow many many Americans believe we are the "victims".
Bottom line is, and the cold hard truth is, our lifestyles here are at the expense of the poor.

"The rich man's living is the poor man's Hell" - Peter Tosh

In this country right now

We have white males (mostly) who open carry their weapons and advocate against our government with some advocating a violent overthrow.

Now imagine for a moment a darker skinned group doing this be they Muslim, African American, or others.

What would the tolerance level be then?


Oh but we've moved past racism in this country.

VA can't afford drug for veterans suffering (dying)


This is outrageous. These veterans were infected by our government and now our government, and the drug company, are turning their backs.
To top it off it was our tax dollars that helped develop this life saving drug which costs $1,400 to make.
The manufacturer Gilead is charging $84,000 for treatment. $42,000 for the VA yet the VA says it has treated just 35,000 of the estimated 250,000 infected vets. All others are on hold.

So we can develop this drug with government money (our taxes), give these vets HepC via blood transfusions and vaccines, but then when it's time to save their lives it's too expensive?

This is so fucked up.
I'm livid.

Bernie Sanders-Ronald Reagan Talk Same Thing

Bernie regarding Hillary on the issue differences between them

Jake Tapper: You also talk about taking on the billionaire class. And you’ve said to Hillary Clinton you’re not sure whether or not she will take on the billionaire class. Give us some specifics where you think you would, and she might not.

Bernie Sanders: I think that the business model of Wall Street is fraud. And I think these guys drove us into the worst economic down turn in the modern history of America. And I think they’re at it again. I believe when you have so few banks with so much power you have to not only re-establish Glass–Steagall Act but you’ve got to break them up. That is not Hillary Clinton’s position. I believe that our trade policies with NAFTA, CAFTA, PNTR with China have been a disaster. I am helping to lead the effort against the Trans-Pacific Partnership. That is not Hillary Clinton’s position. I believe, along with Pope Francis, and almost all scientists, that climate change is threatening this planet in horrendous ways and that we have to be aggressive in transforming our energy system away from fossil fuel, and defeat, and defeat the Keystone pipeline, that is not Hillary Clinton’s position. I believe that as opposed to my Republican colleagues who want to cut Social Security, I believe we should expand Social Security by lifting the cap on taxable income. That’s not Hillary Clinton’s position. I believe that we’ve got to raise the minimum wage over a period of several years to $15 an hour. Not Hillary Clinton’s position. I voted against the war in Iraq. Hillary Clinton voted for it.

So clear.
You know where he stands.

What is a Democratic Socialist?

The stark differences



http://usuncut.com/news/this-meme-reveals-the-stark-difference-between-bernie-and-hillary/

Because Bernie cares!

And he's not afraid to call the sonzabitches out for the greedy pigs that they are. Oh the Repubs will wrap themselves in the flag but the good Senator from Vermont will be the one busy working for we the people.

Last year Bernie fighting for our vets:

Senate blocks Dems' bill boosting vets' benefits

"I personally, I have to say this honestly, have a hard time understanding how anyone could vote for tax breaks for billionaires, for millionaires, for large corporations and then say we don't have the resources to protect our veterans," said Sanders, the measure's chief author.

Democrats noted that more than two dozen veterans groups supported the legislation. But Republicans said they still favor helping veterans while also wanting to be prudent about federal spending.

Decentralized green energy

I favor increasing rebates and tax incentives for the home owner to install rooftop solar/PV and stay away from pouring huge tax dollars into more centralized power production.

Decentralized energy is better for the economy, it spreads the wealth, better for the environment, creates far more good paying jobs than centralized power, and liberates the people from their ever increasing energy bills.

What's stopping this?
The special interests in the privatized energy sector?

On edit: When I say "stopping" for instance the California rebate is no longer and frankly the subsidies could be a lot more in my opinion.

What A Shaman Sees In A Mental Hospital

I experienced what is described in this article when I was a young man. They kept telling me I was sick but I knew different inside.

The Shamanic View of Mental Illness

In the shamanic view, mental illness signals “the birth of a healer,” explains Malidoma Patrice Somé. Thus, mental disorders are spiritual emergencies, spiritual crises, and need to be regarded as such to aid the healer in being born.

What those in the West view as mental illness, the Dagara people regard as “good news from the other world.” The person going through the crisis has been chosen as a medium for a message to the community that needs to be communicated from the spirit realm. “Mental disorder, behavioral disorder of all kinds, signal the fact that two obviously incompatible energies have merged into the same field,” says Dr. Somé. These disturbances result when the person does not get assistance in dealing with the presence of the energy from the spirit realm.
