This Is The Way It Works…

Let’s say for example, you win the lottery and spend a lot of money making television ads to promote your campaign as a candidate for the November 3, 2020 Election for U.S. Congress, and you don’t say much, just the usual “Hope” and “Change” and words that people fall for, and because you are dressed nicely and speak softly with a very slight sex appeal, you get elected.

Maybe you hire a professional voice dub-over, a person to speak in the commercials, and people think its your voice, but its not (did you notice Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez had the sexiest softest voice in the world in her radio commercials, and then she won the election and in real life she sounds like a hag with a sore throat?).

Well, O.K., so let’s imagine you win. Now what?

You go to Washington, D.C. and you are going to make marijuana LAWFUL and you are going to repeal every single stinking no good for nothing marijuana law. You are going to propose an Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, like ending alcoholic beverage prohibition, back when alcoholic beverages were actually illegal in the United States.

But then something terrible happens!

Speaker of the House, Nanny Pelosi, informs you that SHE is the Speaker of the House and SHE will assign YOU to whichever Committee SHE wants to assign you to.

Huh?

Where is the freedom of association guaranteed by the US Constitution? Why can’t you join any committee you want to join – like agriculture! Yeah, that’s the ticket – the Agriculture Committee! Make all plants legal!

Oh, but no, no, no, no, no, no! Speaker of the House, Nanny Pelosi will screech and scream at YOU if you DARE expect to join any committee you want to!

Then, guess what?

You might think you can go visit any committee hearing room you want to, but this is not so!  You would be kicked out on your ass!  The uppity close friends of Nanny Pelosi like to have THEIR hearing rooms in secret!

Why?

Why don’t you get any freedom of speech and freedom of association so you can do what you need to do to make marijuana LAWFUL?

Ah ha!

FOR EXAMPLE, if you are on a medical type committee, then the in-crowd in that committee room writes up a Bill to give the N.I.H., National Institute of Health, billions of tax dollars which the N.I.H. gives to researchers who patent their inventions of pharmaceutical drugs, and then they start their own new pharmaceutical corporations and then they give the members of the Congressional Committee “kick-backs” of political campaign contributions and their Lobbyists wine and dine them and give them very special favors.

Huh?

Isn’t that some kind of combination of bribery and money laundering and witch craft? Yeah, but no one complains because the committee hearings are in secret, and you can’t get in because Speaker of the House Nanny Pelosi has the lock and key to every room.

And so it goes, the U.S. Congress is the number one crime gang in the entire world. Guns, pharmaceutical drugs, weapons, bombs for sale to our “allies”! 

Yep, everything is all for sale with a nice kick-back to the very specially selected members of US Congress, who Nanny Pelosi picks to be in certain committee rooms, and then she gets HER kick-back, you better believe it! And YOU get assigned, by Nanny Pelosi, to the toilet paper committee!

So, WHAT DO WE DO ABOUT THIS? HOW DO WE CHANGE THE BULLSHIT GOING ON IN WASHINGTON, D.C. SO WE CAN MAKE MARIJUANA TRULY LAWFUL?  AND, restore our God-given Human Rights as well?

We must promote the alarming and shocking new idea that members of the US Congress should have equal rights.  The same as each other.  If they don’t have equal rights the same as each other, then the people in the States that they represent do NOT have equal representation! We must DEMAND that all of our elected US Senators and US Congressmen and US Congresswomen and US Congress, LGBT and US Congress-sexless people have EQUAL RIGHTS TO FREEDOM OF ASSOCIATION TO JOIN ANY COMMITTEE THEY WANT TO JOIN, AND TO ENTER ANY HEARING ROOM THEY WANT TO ENTER, AND FREEDOM OF SPEECH TO HAVE AN EQUAL TURN TO TALK ABOUT A SUBJECT.

THAT’S THE BOTTOM LINE.

American Capitalism is BROKEN and we need to fix it!

Image may contain: 1 person, smiling

American Capitalism is broken, and we need to fix it. What made our economy great, our country great, was a compromise many decades ago – Democratic Capitalism. A key part of that compromise was an agreement that we would all play by the same set of financial rules. One set of rules.

And it worked. Because we all played by the same set of rules, everyone had a chance to participate in our economy, and everybody had a chance to benefit from our economy. Until the 1980s’ the wealth our economy created was shared by everyone, wealthy, middle class and even the poor. Every income level got to participate in the benefits of capitalism. It was a rising tide that lifted all boats.

Since the 1980s’ the exact opposite has been true. Virtually all of the financial gains generated by our economy over the last 30 years, more than 21 trillion dollars in wealth, has gone almost exclusively to the very top, to the very wealthy. In the last three decades, the middle class and the poor have received only a tiny, tiny sliver the wealth created by our economy during that time.

This was NOT the natural result of capitalism. It happened because the Keepers of Capitalism allowed a second set of rules to be slipped into different parts of our economy that only benefitted a small part of our population. A second set of rules that allowed Corporate CEO salaries to go from 20 times workers wages to 300 times workers wages. A second set of rules that allows private equity funds to buy, strip and bankrupt healthy companies. A second set of rules that allow Wall Street to generate tens of billions of dollars in profits from selling and insuring things it doesn’t even own. A second set of rules that allows the very wealthy to avoid almost any scrutiny from the IRS.

We can fix all of these. We can fix the distortion that allowed CEO salaries to skyrocket. We can end the advantages of private equity. We can keep Wall Street from selling things it doesn’t own. We can make the IRS treat every taxpayer exactly the same. We can do it. We can get back to one set of rules for everybody. We can get back to an economy where EVERYBODY shares in the gains.

And we should do it, because capitalism actually works better if there is one set of rules for everybody.

Fixing American capitalism won’t be easy, because the people that are making all of the money don’t want the system to change. But we can do it. If we all work together, we can get back to one set of financial rules for everybody. We can get back to an economy where every American benefits. We can get back to Democratic Capitalism.

Jesse Ventura Considering Presidential Run

jesse ventura 2019

Jesse Ventura is considering running for President as an independent. “I have that voice in the back of my head that says to me, ‘if not to me, then who?'”

Ventura gave his first American TV interview in 3 years to “The Issue Is: with Elex Michaelson.” He says only a 3rd party candidate could truly unite our polarized country. When he was elected governor of Minnesota, Ventura said Donald J. Trump reached out to him & they were friends. Now, he’s not a fan of President Trump as commander in chief. “The first night of boot camp, there’s one person who will break down, wet their pants, cry for their mom…that’s Donald Trump.” Ventura talked about cannabis, climate change, wrestling, and more in this unedited, in depth interview.

What do you think?
