"And Hillary was right, "women's rights are human rights."

My question is why would any woman, particularly in the USA give up her human RIGHT to be able to choose the direction or path HER life may take. Roe vs. Wade, I'm looking at you and the women Justices that sit on SCOTUS"

The Youngbloods - 1967 'Get Together'



Come on People Now, Smile on Your Brother’: The Making of ‘Get Together’ - WSJ https://www.wsj.com/articles/come-on-people-now-smile-on-your-brother-the-making-of-get-together-11591721529

The Youngbloods were an American rock band consisting of Jesse Colin Young (vocals, bass), Jerry Corbitt (guitar), Lowell "Banana" Levinger (guitar and electric piano), and Joe Bauer (drums). Despite receiving critical acclaim, they never achieved widespread popularity. Their only U.S. Top 40 entry was Chet Powers' "Get Together"



Love is but a song we sing
Fear's the way we die
You can make the mountains ring
Or make the angels cry
Though the bird is on the wing
And you may not know why

Come on, people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another right now

Some may come and some may go
He will surely pass
When the one that left us here
Returns for us at last
We are but a moment's sunlight
Fading in the grass

Come on, people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another right now

How can MEDIA "write these articles without the words "foreign," "organized crime," or "money laund"

It shocks me how one can write these articles without the words "foreign," "organized crime," or "money laundering" even once.
If you write something like "Some people familiar with financial issue prosecutions say many suspects do not want to go to prison," that's not helpful.

"The question is *whose money is laundered through Trump's buildings.* And we mostly know who. THAT'S why they won't flip.


And one of the reasons a foreign-owned Mobster ended up in the White House is that the U.S. media kept reframing every story so that the foreign intelligence and transnational organized crime were cropped out.

Well. It's still the real story. Some of us will tell it."

"The GOP's 60 year War on the News Media was a resounding success.

It/they were right to fear the money and power of The Preachers & Plutocrats, which included several of the small bunch who own/ed large parts of the MSM.

Producers & reporters knew very well which stories might advance their careers and which might kill them.

One of those stories to avoid was talking about exactly the false, hypocritical "neutrality", which meant "Don't stir up the Right"

Things changed only as maintaining the pretense cost more than haltingly adding Reality"

Pres Biden Opposed to letting the federal gasoline tax rise at the rate of inflation to fund infrast

The White House made clear Friday that President Joe Biden was opposed to letting the federal gasoline tax rise at the rate of inflation to help pay for an infrastructure package that a bipartisan group of 21 senators is trying to craft.

The gas tax increase was part of an early package that called for $579 billion in new spending on roads, bridges, rail and public transit.
It’s unclear if it will make the final cut and the White House seems intent on making sure it doesn’t.

“After the extraordinarily hard times that ordinary Americans endured in 2020 — job losses, shrinking incomes, squeezed budgets — he is simply not going to allow Congress to raise taxes on those who suffered the most.”

The federal gas tax stands at 18.4 cents a gallon and has not increased since 1993. It helps pay for highways and mass transit programs around the country.
Congress has traditionally relied on the user-pay principle to pay for road and bridge work, but is increasingly relying on general funds to accomplish that task.
Lawmakers from both parties are wary of attack ads accusing them of supporting a hike in gas prices.

Oregon Sen. Ron Wyden, the Democratic chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, said that indexing the gas tax to inflation was a nonstarter for him.

“It’s another hit on working people,” Wyden said.

Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, said a gas tax hike is a “Republican thing.”

The Delta Variant Could Create "Two Americas" Of COVID, Experts Warn

The Delta Variant Could Create “Two Americas” Of COVID, Experts Warn

If you are fully vaccinated, you are most likely to be safe. But in parts of the US where few people have gotten COVID vaccine shots, the Delta variant could trigger renewed deadly surges.

Experts say we may be about to see the emergence of “two Americas” of COVID:


One with high rates of vaccination where the Delta coronavirus variant poses little threat, and the other with low levels of vaccination that will be vulnerable to renewed deadly surges.
That divide is driven in large part by partisan politics, with vaccination rates highest in liberal cities and lowest in conservative strongholds
across the Deep South and in rural areas across the nation.

“I call it two COVID nations,” Peter Hotez, a vaccine researcher at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, told BuzzFeed News.

SNIP
According to a CBS News/YouGov poll published this week, only 52% of Republicans said they were partially or fully vaccinated, and 29% said they have no intention of getting a vaccine. Among Democrats, 77% said they were already vaccinated, and just 5% said they weren’t intending to get the shots.

Vaccine rollout data at the county level also shows a strong relationship to voting in the 2020 presidential election.

Somehow we have to break this idea that allegiance to conservatism and the Republican Party has to do with not getting vaccinated,” Hotez said. “It’s really troubling.”

The Flood Waters of Crimea.. they're swimming after the boss's boat!!

This is just weird.

"A state of emergency is in Russian annexed Crimea including the city of Kerch. Whole streets are submerged in water in parts of the city.
In this video, Sergey Aksenov, the head of Crimea, is on a boat while employees of the Ministry of Emergency had to swim behind
