GOP Overtly Turned Against the Will of the People

Started by Ruth Anthony-Gardner. Last reply by Grinning Cat Dec 13, 2020. 8 Replies

In actively trying to subvert the results of the election, the GOP has shown unapologetically that aside from power, what they want above all else is the ability to tax the American people without actually having to represent them. ... a dangerous…Continue

Just another shooting in the day to day routine.....sigh......

Comment was by Stephen Brodie on May 25, 2021 at 5:02pm

If this type of shooting had happened here in the UK and it was shown on TV there would be a total clamour from the British people to have even tougher gun laws. But in the US silence from its politicians.

US states oppose ‘unjust’ plan to shield Sackler wealth in opioid settlement

Twenty-four states object to bankruptcy proposal for Sacklers to settle lawsuits by paying $4.3bn but family would keep about $7bn

Nearly half of US states have joined growing opposition to a highly unusual bankruptcy plan that would protect the wealth of the Sackler family after it made billions of dollars from selling the drug that kickstarted the US opioid epidemic.

Attorneys general of 24 states, members of Congress, municipalities and victims’ families object to the proposal for the Sacklers to forfeit ownership of Purdue Pharma, the manufacturer of the powerful prescription painkiller OxyContin, and surrender part of their immense fortune in return for immunity from further litigation over their part in a drug epidemic that has claimed more than 500,000 lives.

I have a vague understanding of one of the reasons why they do vote against their own interest.
That being  the 10,000 odd years that the parasites of society have been spruiking bull-dust and balderdash to protect  their positions in their societies otherwise the masses would have ripped their throats out and returned to a fairer societal structure.

The hierarchical structure of our society is what will ultimately destroy our society for there are to many fault lines. This pandemic and the financial meltdowns that have occurred within the last 15 years  have illuminated those fault lines had anyone been bothered to be observant.

I can only understand it when I think of my downtrodden mother; such a total victim of husband, policy and religion that she would NEVER consider her own ideas - if she had any. She could only unthinkingly repeat what the men in power told her to say. I guess more people live like that, but I still hope they become extinct.

Boggling is right.

Comment was by Stephen Brodie on May 9, 2021 at 11:13pm

We actually had working-class people say that they voted Tory because they are fed up with the elites. The mind boggles.

Comment was by Stephen Brodie on May 9, 2021 at 11:06pm

If I were to live a thousand years I'll never understand how downtrodden working-class people can vote against their own self-interest by voting for a person like Borass and a party like the Tories. They've been in power for the last 12 years and I actually heard people they couldn't vote Labour because of what they've done to the country. Talk about ignorance.

Comment was by Joan Denoo on May 6, 2021 at 3:02am

Sounds like the British voted in a bad leader as did we! I hope they find a new leader with skills of management personnel.
