277. There IS a solution, matter WHAT the Status Quo naysayers ^above^ insist,
there IS a solution,
and it has been given to us by our neighbors to the south.

The Bolivarian Reforms sweeping across South & Central America are nothing short of (near) bloodless revolutions.
They have taken their governments BACK from the hands of the predatory Oligarchs.

"The worst enemy of humanity is U.S. capitalism. That is what provokes uprisings like our own, a rebellion against a system, against a neoliberal model, which is the representation of a savage capitalism. If the entire world doesn't acknowledge this reality, that nation states are not providing even minimally for health, education and nourishment, then each day the most fundamental human rights are being violated."
----Bolivian Reform President Evo Morales

FDR said much the same thing in 1944 with his Economic Bill of Rights.
Bolivian President Evo Morales sounds more like FDR than anyone in the current Democratic Party Leadership.

The "change" in Latin America gives me "hope" for The World.
Unfortunately, things will get worse here before they get better,
so hunker down for a while.
It IS coming.

When the Working Class & The Poor realize we have more in common with each other
than we have in common with the Leadership of BOTH Political parties,
we can have "change".

As long as our RICH politicians and their friends in the Media can keep the National Debate
focused between the bookends of the Fool's Choice between the two established Political parties,
the charade will continue.

If the Debt Ceiling Disaster Capitalism Kabuki does nothing else,
and the Social Safety Net is further dismantled
along with Already Paid For "trimming" of Social Security & Medicare,
it will bring us one step closer.

VIVA Democracy!
I pray we get some here soon.
Until then, I'll be growing my own food.
