From back thread:

Of course it was. She was recruited.

I've seen this "she was recruited" statement a few times but never looked into it. Can anyone recommend a good link with info?

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — The California Legislature voted Monday to tax people who refuse to buy health insurance, bringing back a key part of former President Barack Obama’s health care law in the country’s most populous state after it was eliminated by Republicans in Congress.

If I lived in California this might make me think twice about continuing with democrat legislators.

Henry,

I'll let the the Democratic media spin the results. Let them pick the winners and losers. Seems only fair to me, they are all paid from the same sources.

Republicans should ignore the debate and not comment on it.

Let the Democrats seethe when their favorite candidate gets dissed in the media. Good for unity.

I think that is what is the most distressing and puzzling about Kavanaugh. During the hearings and especially at the end when he survived, I was thinking, "Well, if anything good could come from all of this, it should indelibly imprint in his soul what the left is like and embolden him to rule the right way." Ha! Instead, it seems he is intent on proving that the left was wrong about him and he will make many rulings that they support. Has there ever been a Supreme Court Justice who surprised us the opposite way? Who was approved as a liberal but once seated, began to vote with the conservatives?

When you say #cancelstudentdebt, you’re saying a minority of people who had the advantage of obtaining a degree should have their debt paid off by hardworking taxpayers, 2/3 of whom don’t have degrees themselves, or already paid their own student debt off.

This is immoral.

The market makes us do those things we don't want to do but need to; like get a degree in a discipline that actually has jobs with which to pay off student loans.
God makes us do things we don't want to do as well, like not covet our neighbors [fill in the blank].
Both of those things prevent perpetual children from existing.

Ig @ 9:41

Totally agree. But the thing is, we have had a government, and a media and a pop culture that has been pushing those childish alternatives 24/7/365 for several decades.

Obviously, yes, people can and do make better choices, as we see on JOM, for example. But the reality is, the majority of people will be more influenced by whatever social pressures are out there.

I really don't blame people who have been brainwashed for 12 years in crappy government schools for making terrible decisions when that's what they've been constantly encouraged to do.

I blame entirely the people who have encouraged those decisions to produce precisely what we have now - millions of people who are struggling with massive debt that prevents them from buying home, cars, etc, and makes them feel helpless and victimized and unable to achieve anything without the hand of government. That was the goal all along, to make succeeding generations incapable of any real independence or self-sufficency.

And at the same time, all that money has gone to support ever more bureaucrats to make the brainwashing ever worse.

So, yes, cancel the debt, and take the money from the colleges to do it. Blow up the whole damn system. Make the schools bleed, make them fire all the Deans of Diversity and Inclusion, make them shut down the grievance studies departments, shutter the Department of Education.

Jim,

Here is an overview of how AOC got elected:

https://www.quora.com/How-did-Alexandria-Ocasio-Cortez-win-her-election

MissMarple2

This article was posted by Devin Nunes, so I have to conclude that Kelly's assumptions in this are true.

https://amgreatness.com/2019/06/24/the-steele-dossier-has-been-discredited-is-the-ic-report-next/

The Infamous Ignatz

And that is the bottom line, no? Truth.
It is the fundamental lie of collectivism that there is such a thing as a free lunch or that you can make your neighbor pay for your lunch indefinitely.
It's also a lie that you can covet your neighbor's house, wife, car, et al and you will have them. What you will have instead is war.

As usual you can find the answer, the truth, in the bible. The fool says in his heart there is no God and the result is each man does what is right in his own eyes. The result? They gave up their freedom of the period of the judges in pursuit of a king to rule over them because what was right in their own eyes led to chaos and dissipation.

The truth as Paul noted is those who don't work, don't eat and the wages of sin is death. The free market which best channels human nature to please our fellow man in order to make a voluntary and mutually beneficial deal with him is the natural outgrowth of Western Civilization which sprang forth in many ways from one verse; there is now neither Jew nor Greek, bond nor free, male nor female in Christ Jesus.
From that springs the notions of the fundamental right to life, equal rights before the law and that if we want peace and a society of adults, man should be the servant of God and the state should be the servant of man.

He was released?

Holy cow. Well so far these are civil not criminal offenses so I guess I get it.

Jane,he was released on the drunk driving charge in CT. I'm still not clear on why he wasn't detained in NH Friday night. The Mass. State Police arrested him and found the (alleged) heroin. They brought him back up to NH for arraignment. There should be more details later. Several truckers with CDLs called Howie Carr yesterday explaining different regulations. He was hauling an empty flatbed trailer on the 2500 Dodge. Another unanswered question is did he have a CDL? The transport company he works for has several violations involving drugged and /or drunk drivers.

Iran leadership doesn’t understand the words “nice” or “compassion,” they never have. Sadly, the thing they do understand is Strength and Power, and the USA is by far the most powerful Military Force in the world, with 1.5 Trillion Dollars invested over the last two years alone..

....The wonderful Iranian people are suffering, and for no reason at all. Their leadership spends all of its money on Terror, and little on anything else. The U.S. has not forgotten Iran’s use of IED’s & EFP’s (bombs), which killed 2000 Americans, and wounded many more...

....Iran’s very ignorant and insulting statement, put out today, only shows that they do not understand reality. Any attack by Iran on anything American will be met with great and overwhelming force. In some areas, overwhelming will mean obliteration. No more John Kerry & Obama!

Anyone need a new conspiracy to chase?

Why is it that every time Donald Trump gets together with Xi Jinping, someone gets busted on a sanctions violation? I'm not privy to the inner workings of our cops and spooks, so I'm just asking. While Trump and Xi sat down to dinner at the November 2018 Group of 20 meeting in Argentina, the chief financial officer of Huawei was arrested in a Vancouver airport transit lounge. Now that Trump and Xi are meeting again next week at the Osaka Group of 20 meeting, there are reports of a contempt-of-court order against Chinese banks for violation of North Korea sanctions. This has caused more than a flutter, as I report this morning at Asia Times.

"System Change, Not Climate Change"?

As an ecosocialist, I am a staunch advocate for the eradication of global capitalism, which I view as the main driver of anthropogenic climate change.1 Many climate activists continue to be reluctant to identify capitalism as the “elephant in the room,” thinking that doing so will alienate many mainstream progressives. Within the Australian context where I operate, some climate activists will even engage in “red-baiting” of ecosocialists within the movement. As the Australian Greens have tried to mainstream themselves, they have likewise made life for ecosocialists and ecoanarchists within the party very uncomfortable.

Nevertheless, I believe that climate activists need to advance alternatives to capitalism, not just tweaks like the adoption of renewables, electric cars, and carbon pricing. We anthropologists understand that social systems do not last forever. European feudalism persisted for some 900 years but gradually evolved into capitalism, which over the course of 500 years evolved into a world system. Many scholars and activists argue that the world tried socialism and it failed, as was illustrated by the collapse of the Soviet bloc and the emergence authoritarian regimes such as Maoist China, North Korea, and Pol Pot Cambodia. These efforts to construct socialism failed for a variety of historical and social-structural, internal and external, factors. Now, socialism needs to be re-envisioned for the twenty-first century, an effort underway in various quarters, including among those developing the notion of ecosocialism. We need to transcend speaking of “postcapitalism” without clearly envisioning what should be next.

Whatever we term the next system—ecosocialism, ecoanarchism, postcapitalism, global democracy, Great Transition—the more crucial question is how we go from A to B, from capitalism to whatever we may wish to term B. Needed are radical transitional system-challenging reforms, such as new left parties; steep emissions taxes at sites of production; public ownership of the means of production; increased social equality; stabilization of global population; broadened democratic structures; meaningful work and shorter work week; a steady-state global economy; energy efficiency, renewable energy sources, appropriate technology, and green jobs; public transportation; sustainable food production and forestry; postconsumerism; sustainable trade; and eco- and community-friendly settlement patterns. The transitional steps provide loose guidelines, not a blueprint, for shifting human societies toward a more socially just, democratic, and environmentally sustainable system that can return the planet to a safer climate. Constructing an alternative to global capitalism is the ultimate climate mitigation strategy, even though it will not be achieved anytime soon, if indeed ever. Along the way, of course, many of the more modest objectives promoted by the climate movement would be part of a transition to an alternative world system, one that will be manifested in different ways in different countries.

“System Change, Not Climate Change”?

There are many calls for systems change, but few people actually reflect on what a system is, who defines systems, what the boundaries are, and so on. If we take a generic Google definition of a system as “a set of things working together as parts of a mechanism or an interconnecting network; a complex whole,” it becomes clear that systems are relationships, and climate change is essentially a relationship problem. It is about how we relate to ourselves, each other, other species, the environment, and the future. Relationships are often expressed through power, politics, interests, etc. However, at the end of the day, if we buy into the mechanistic metaphor and see systems as a collection of separate parts, we will perpetuate the perspective that we are separate from each other and “the system,” and we will “fight it” rather than relate to it differently.

The Enlightenment paradigm is killing us, and science itself may have to transform to meet the climate challenge—this includes the social sciences. Personally, I have been fascinated with the development of a quantum social science that brings subjectivity, agency, consciousness, and intention into our understanding of structural and systemic change. Classical science tells us that the future is a choice, but also that we have no free will. My current project on “quantum social change” has led me to explore the implications of different interpretations of quantum physics for climate change responses, both metaphorically and meaningfully. To approach the relationships between individual change, collective change, and systems change through a different paradigm can have a profound influence on the narratives and stories that we tell ourselves.

A social movement informed by the Enlightenment paradigm is likely to limit our collective capacity for social change. Indeed, allowing people to be the subjects of their own lives (as Paolo Freire emphasized), rather than reducing them to objects to be changed, can unleash powerful energy for social change. There is no lack of knowledge about the solutions to climate change, but they are unlikely to be realized at scale without activating both personal and political agency.

By the way, the GTI link talks about all the Dem 2020 candidates being on board with this agenda.

NONE of the scientific stuff I was receiving had any of that. The entire global warming thing appeared almost out of nowhere.

JIB,

Last time I was in London, which I think was last fall, I was absolutely shocked at the diversity. Never saw anything like it on my many trips before.

I suspect it's only gotten bigger.

The Infamous Ignatz

--When I was in college and then working for the coal company, all of the literature pointed toward a coming period of global cooling and what could be done to mitigate it.--

That's because for forty years we had a cooling period and before that we had a forty year hot spell. Since the last cooling trend we've had a forty year warm cycle. Now it appears that cycle may be ending too.
It's almost like there's some kind of a pattern or something.

Something else I've never seen mentioned anywhere though I'm sure it has been. They adjust the early 20th century as having been warm but much less warm than now, even though the raw data show it to be at least as warm as now, and they claim the hottest five years on records are in the last few years.
If we really are hotter than ever why is it the world record for heat is still 1913 in Death Valley?
