New York State Lawmakers Give Themselves A Pay Raise…

All politicians salary should be limited to half of the average lowest level income of the population…

This should be law.

…Then we’ll see how they exist on starvation, poverty wages…and see how quickly they’ll develop an interest in raising income of the masses.

…But, then…

Most of these people already come from wealth and privilege, and/or they’ve become wealthy through capitalism or crime…or they have a major corporation supporting them, with a reward job waiting for them…They have alternative sources of income…Most of these “law makers” likely don’t even need their government income…

…Maybe people of a certain wealth should just be barred from holding government office…

That’s unconstitutional…but you know what?…That would be one beginning step in the right direction…Just completely flush all of the wealth out of the system…Have the common people writing and passing [and repealing] the laws.

…Let only the people who suffer the harshest brunt, make and enforce the rules…

…We’d actually end up with meaningful, humane laws, crafted by people who actually give a shit about the state of things.

Bloodthirsty War “Experts” Say Ukraine War Is A Bargain…

“In a recent piece published by the Center for European Policy Analysis, economist Timothy Ash makes the case that the mere $100 billion the United States has spent (so far) on the Ukraine War has been totally worth it, mere “peanuts” actually, if the objective of the war is to destroy the Russian economy and to debilitate its military while sacrificing few, if any, American soldiers’ lives. The human cost of the war, whether to the Ukrainian people, the Russian people, the people in the rest of Europe or the Americans whose tax dollars are NOT being spent to solve domestic problems, doesn’t seem to factor in for Ash.

Jimmy and Revolutionary Black Network’s Nick Cruse discuss this blinkered, some might say sociopathic, view of the pros and cons of war.”

Doesn’t that mean it would likewise “cost peanuts”, to end homelessness, provide a universal basic income and universal healthcare in the USA?

Why is there so much bellyaching in congress, over the “peanuts” that would be spent on these things?

…Lying Scumbags!

“Musical elitism is a vast topic that touches on class & classism, gatekeeping, education, snobbery, wealth, privilege, classical music, aspiration, historical legacy and popular culture. In this video I take a broad look at all of these.

Chapters:
00:00 – Intro
05:22 – Ancient China & Confucius
09:21 – The Secret Power of Music
11:51 – The Sex Pistols
15:46 – Mozart

I’ve never thought of Kenny G as being Jazz. I just considered him to be a contemporary instrumental artist.

“What if you could walk way faster without trying any harder? Moonwalkers basically put an electric moving sidewalk right under your feet. WIRED’s Brent Rose has some questions: Are they real? Are they safe? Are they actually any good? Brent goes inside Shift Robotics’s research and development lab to get some answers.”

Are you Homophobic?…

“Please answer honestly, and no picking bad answers as a joke!

Note for those saying that discussions should be disabled: People are allowed to have opinions, and civil discussion is healthy for developing one’s own thought process. Truly homophobic statements purely for the sake of stirring the pot will be deleted, but real discussions, even heated ones, are allowed to happen.”

“You are not homophobic.
You love and support the LGBTQ+ community in every way, and there is not a single homophobic bone in your body!”

…There you go!

TWITTER Was The One Lying About Covid And Smearing Truth-Tellers!…

Date: December 28, 2022

“The latest release in the so-called “Twitter Files” information dump has revealed the incredibly close relationship between the United States government and the social media platform as the two worked together (at the government’s insistence) to censor not just misinformation about COVID but also pretty much any information that conflicted with the official state narrative, true or not. Among the many Twitter users to get caught up in this public-private web was Martin Kulldorff, a former professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School.

Jimmy and Revolutionary Black Network’s Nick Cruse discuss all the ways the government and Twitter conspired to censor users who diverged from the party line on COVID.”

Elon Spanks Dem Congressman For Lying About COVID On Twitter…

“California Democratic Congressman Ted Lieu admits he would love to be able to censor his opponents on social media if it weren’t for that pesky first amendment. Yet he doesn’t need to worry about being censored himself, even though he was recently exposed for spreading misinformation about the efficacy of COVID vaccinations, specifically on children. Hey, being in Congress and lying for the benefit of the pharmaceutical industry has its perks!

Jimmy and Revolutionary Black Network’s Nick Cruse discuss the consequences some face for spreading what’s labeled “misinformation” on social media whether the information is accurate or not.”

TikTok Psychic Uses Idaho Murders to Falsely Accuse Professor – Ashley Guillard Case Analysis…

“This video answers the question: Can I analyze case of Ashley Guillard? She is a TikTok psychic at the center of a lawsuit due to false claims she made about the 2022 Moscow, Idaho quadruple murder case.”

Good definition of defamation.

Be careful what you express…or at least how you express it…especially if it implies something about someone else.
