01) We Cannot Pretend that Capitalism is the Only Way (w/guest Richard Wolff)

“Dr. Richard Wolff joins Thom Hartmann, suggesting that “the ultimate criteria for an economic system is whether or not it works for the vast majority of the people” Our system isn’t working and yet, we debate all aspects of our lives, why not debate our economic systems?”

Bernie Sanders Cites “Corruption” as Reason for Wall Street Deregulation Push…

01) Bernie Sanders Cites “Corruption” as Reason for Wall Street Deregulation Push

“In an interview with Anderson Cooper, Bernie Sanders explained why Republicans are so anxious to quickly deregulate Wall Street: corruption. Additionally, he explained how this is being done while other, more important issues are getting ignored. As usual, Bernie Sanders was right on the money, but he needed to more clearly emphasize the role Senate Democrats have been playing in this latest push to deregulate Wall Street as well.”

They’re Coming to Take It Away?…

Date: March 17, 2018

“They’re Coming to Take It Away.”

…That pretty much sums up what the zealots of this world do, to the disenfranchised.

…Legal freedoms…Gone!…

…Safe options…Gone!…

…Peaceful existence…Gone!…

…Public voice…Gone!…

…Political representation…Gone!…

…Right to defend yourself…Gone!…

…And now [actually, for many years] they want the ability of a MAP openly imparting thoughts upon any part of the general population to be stripped away, also?

This is truly the ugliest, most abusive manifestation of zealotry.

There is something I have no rational or moral need to apologize for…yet some zealots have taken it upon themselves to obsess over…because, apparently, they have nothing of real use to apply their lives too…

I have an interest, and find satisfaction, in exploring both theoretical and real world historical, human sexual culture.

Anyone not liking that is not forced to partake…which concludes the issue, from my perspective.

In addition…I don’t need the permission of paranoid bigots, to undertake this venture.

I find a great deal of personal life meaning in it, as do some others…This is the only justification I need.

So many, with their slogans and talking points, are culture shocked by MAPs who discuss the world as it truly exists, without apology.

…Those sorts need to take the time, to get their own heads into the real world…and stop living by dogmas, ignorance and hostile intolerance.

Stephen Hawking’s Stunningly Brilliant & Moral Legacy…

Date: March 18, 2018

01) Stephen Hawking’s Stunningly Brilliant & Moral Legacy

“Stephen Hawking once proclaimed he had gathered experimental evidence that time travel is not possible. The experiment? A party for time travelers he hosted in 2009. But he didn’t send out the invitation until the party was over. I sat there a long time, but no one came, he explained in the documentary Into the Universe. It must be proof time travel is not possible: What self-respecting time traveler could resist the chance to drink champagne with the famed physicist?

Hawking died Wednesday (coincidentally on Albert Einstein’s birthday and Pi Day), at the age of 76 at his home in Cambridge, England. He was a genius but also playful, with an extraordinary ability to bring science to the masses and spark a sense of wonder in us all…


Females [Even Young Ones] Do Sexually Assault…

Date: March 16, 2018

01) Boys Often Don’t Recognize When They’ve Been Sexually Assaulted

“I’ve spent the last seven years interviewing high-school and college students about sex and emotional intimacy — the last year-and-a-half talking exclusively to boys. Of course, we discussed sexual violation. I’d assumed, at least for heterosexual boys, that we’d talk about what they thought it meant to get consent from a girl, how they’d define assault. What surprised me was how often the boys brought up their own experience of unwanted sex: encounters in which girls did not respect “no” or, as with Dylan, took advantage of them when they were drunk.

I want to be clear: Girls bear the brunt — both physically and psychologically — of sexual harassment, assault, and rape, but they’re not its exclusive targets. Middle- and high-school-aged boys report being the victims of dating violence, including physical abuse, at rates similar to girls. In a 2015 study, 43 percent of high-school and college boys said they’d been the victim of some form of sexual coercion — verbal, physical, substance-related — and 95 percent said the aggressors were girls. And large-scale surveys of college students — including the 21,000 who participated in the Online College Social Life Survey and the 9,616 involved in Columbia University’s Sexual Health Initiative to Foster Transformation — have found that roughly one in eight men have experienced something that meets the criteria for sexual assault; in over 80 percent of those cases, one study found, the perpetrators were female.

43% of high-school & college boys said they’d been the victim of sexual coercion — and 95% said the aggressors were girls.

Roughly one in eight men have experienced sexual assault; in over 80% of those cases, the perpetrators were female.”

Putting aside the possible loose definitions of “assault” that can come into play here…

…I’ve never understood why males were seen as the primary sexual aggressors…

…In my experience, females have been every bit as aggressive…if not more so.

Some of them really love having sex…and decide that you are going to be with them, well before it’s even been spoken of.

01) Fundamentalists Say Stephen Hawking Isn’t An Atheist Anymore

“With the death of the brilliant theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking, you knew there would be religious people eager to use the tragedy to promote their own beliefs. What’s surprising is that it’s not just random trolls doing it…


Elizabeth Warren: I’m Not Running For President…

01) Elizabeth Warren: I’m Not Running For President

“Sen. Elizabeth Warren says she isn’t running for president in 2020.
“I am not running for president in 2020,” Warren told CNN’s Jim Acosta on Saturday.
Warren, a Massachusetts Democrat and staunch critic of President Donald Trump, made the statement in an interview for CNN’s “State of the Union.”
Acosta also asked if she gets upset when President Donald Trump refers to her as “Pocahontas.”

“It’s about my family’s story. Because my family’s story is deeply a part of me and a part of my brothers,” Warren said. “It’s what we learned from our parents. It’s what we learned from our grandparents. It’s what we learned from our aunts and uncles.
