USA Denial: Gun Violence, Climate Change & Life-saving Medical Treatment – TREMR Staff Pick & OpEdNews.com Headline

Posted on

Until we stop yielding rational thinking to Corporatism’s mental programming, dismantling government to expedite nation collapsing, we will continually allow the few who choose to be blind, to diminish the vision of those who in their hearts know:  America’s future recedes each time we elect puppets of people whose post New Deal plan is to never bestow power in a government willing to lift Corporatism’s Middle Class customers, working poor surfs and discarded masses yearning to breathe free of food stamps, lead water pipes, and homelessness.

Notwithstanding twenty children and six adults gunned down in a pre-Christmas mass shooting, ignoring never again, El Paso, Dayton and Odessa, Texas lawmakers have now made it easier to increase our numbers:  more than 2,300 people have been killed and almost 8,400 have been wounded, in mass shootings and since 20 January 2017, more than eighty-three people have been killed and 512 wounded in America’s AR-15 addiction.

There is no America the Beautiful in a Senate Majority leader who denies any attempt for our Senate to vote on any of the reasonable gun violence prevention laws, passed by the House.

No sense of a, Land of the Free, when fearing to be in public;

No justice for, one person one vote, when betrayed by Conservative citizens responsible for the integrity of their States’ voting machines;

No government of, by and for the people, when electing party over country;

No Homeland Security, when living in a country without a real president; in a time of daily distribution of repetitious nonsense from a reality show host pretending to be president, atop an acting administration with a supporting cast scripted by misinformation – all aided and abetted by a corporate clan’s excrement on Edward R. Murrow example.

Unless we believe the globe’s greatest manipulators of mega wealth and governments, are as short-sighted as a VP hiding in the wings, a Senate Majority Leader liberally stacking our judicial system with Reactionary Conservatives and the glitter gathering Trump family trusting, they can take it all with them – care about us, perhaps we should give some thought regarding what market manipulators of political parties, plan for the rest of us, as they shore up their offshore stash, investing millions in deserting earth for Mars, in a technological age where robots can fulfill most human activities.

Most living in America are doing the best they can to keep up, stay ahead and save each other from, Grim Reaper Conservatism, but being raised to believe real men don’t ask for help – hearts, minds and hands full of NRA faux constitutional love – some succumb to the mental illness of easier accessibility to inflict, An American Tragedy, camouflaged in religion and patriotism.

Liberal ideals were the foundation of America’s, we hold these truths, and historically, Liberals have repeatedly restored our economy, Middle Class, Homeland Security and Justice for All, after Conservatives endangered them:

  • Hoover Depression to FDR’s New Deal
  • Eisenhower’s Cold War to JFK’s New Frontier
  • Reagan’s Trickle Down to Clinton’s surplus
  • Bush/Cheney Great Recession to Obama’s Economic Recovery

Now, GOP Trump bleeds American life with Trade Wars, Tariffs and ignoring, The Guns of August, his neglect, incompetence and laundered money potentially paints America’s oil slicked economy, blood red.

Yet, Trump/Pence didn’t create the GOP.  It created them.

Even before the Democratic Party produced Abigail Spanberger, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders, who wisely assessed, If the Environment were a Bank, it would have been saved already – it was championed by Eleanor Roosevelt whose contributions to gender and racial equality became the torch that lit America’s path forward, and nominated our first woman ever, for the presidency of the United States.

Yet, we still follow those fighting the last war, building neighborhoods for pre-Climate Change reality and enabling Conservative Republican puppets of the NRA to drown America in its own movie goers’, shoppers’ and children’s blood.

Where will we stand at last, after Brits reject their Brexit Trump, Putin’s full-filled hopes for Americans never tiring of shooting each other and a world fearing we might fail to eject our Russian made Court Jester?

What will America be after Americans ignore the increasing numbers of farmers, cyber bullied teens and Opioid suicides?

How can a, Home of the Brave, not consider the blinding and deafening maze of Trump media coverage, cover for Conservatives placing a higher value on Big Pharma, NRA and the Trump Organization, than American lives?

Can America be The Land of the Free if Americans don’t stand between the evil of Trump’s 33 Day Deportation Notice to Death and its targets for extinction?

With coffee chats in bookstores, libraries and walking dogs, often strangers reawaken civility, heal cell addiction and rejuvenate curiosity for more inclusive connection.

Question How We Bring Home What’s Been Lost? – TREMR Staff Pick – OpEdNews.com Headline

Posted on

Who taught us to focus more on rude, crude posturing, instead of distinguishing ourselves as everyday heroes sans headlines?

What will it take to shift from problem fascination to solution focusing?

When will we divorce bewildering bellowing, marry wisdom that permeates time out, and rebirth the family value of peaceful assembly?

Where, in a, land of the free, does being a patriot award the freedom to belittle with abject name calling or the liberty to assign angry adjectives to nouns of diversity?

Why do we increasingly flock like sheep to baa at behest of blah blah of over consumerism, over-zealous zealots and over-aged politicians, pimping redundancy of wolves in sheep’s clothing as, the new world order for, the natural order of things:  keeping women in their place, children seen but not heard, LGBTQ, Muslims and Mexicans banned from real citizenship – and, the South shall rise again, for real?

How can we turn a blind eye to the consequential discrepancy between an NRA Mea Culpa projecting the fault of its internal morality hemorrhage, as victim of North aggression?

Who can overlook the hourly pretension of media hyperbole accelerating Fourth Estate demise partnering with the pomposity of a pretender-in-Chief tweeting unsubstantiated, slings and arrows of outrageous fortune?

What about, Democratic Socialists so irritates conservatives’ anti-inclusive short-sighted militia itch, and exposes anti-American, lock and load threat to Trump’s damaging horde and damaged objectives alike – both struggling for very different Americas in a racist presidential swamp – deposited in an inequitable economic bog?

Where is Trump/Pence sting, when those who so love the world, love it enough to save all life upon it?  Hate, as a Right Wing required acquired taste, is only a digestible family value in hearts manipulated into harboring it.

Why it is that the two thirds of these United States for whom, the natural order of things, has evolved – from Civil War mutating into Jim Crow Laws which emboldened Ku Klux Klan and, ultimately, a reality show invasion of all levels of American government – still settles for rerun of maniacal McCarthyism scare tactics?

How can we not now vote, no matter how tattered our elections and political parties, to resurrect from Trump ashes a Good Samaritan patriotism that is honor bound to elect champions inspired by a duty-bound electorate demanding an all-inclusive American Dream?

While banning Muslims, spreading presidential manure on less fortunate countries, restricting marriage licenses, gunning down each other in schools, workplaces and places of worship – we fail our Definite Major Purpose:  to, as stewards, preserve, protect and defend earth and all life upon it.

How then, do we Emerge from Slave Bible, Green Book and Faith Movies through FDR, JFK, MLK – to AOC, a ratified ERA and incorruptible DOJ?

Stand tall and deliver on the promises we’ve preached:  colorblind justice, individual eradication of sexual harassment, gender bias, racial bigotry and the religious hypocrisy of insulting Biblical lessons like, love thy neighbor as thyself, with the asterisk:  as long as my neighbor looks and thinks as I do.

Who remembers what America can do when we look for miracles in each other?

What contributions can’t rainbows mingling with LGBTQ, people of color and descendants of immigrants make to the American Dream?

When will we stop demanding Change, but voting for those who can’t yet fathom, there are more things in heaven and earth than are dreamt of in a Conservative Republican’s philosophy?

Where is home for a third of Americans who reject the abundant potential of an in-depth foundation of democratic miracles?

Why do we forget we didn’t have a cure for Tuberculosis, Smallpox, Polio, Mumps, Measles, Chickenpox and the Flu – until we did:  so, what’s next, Climate Injustice.

How can America find its way home through the aftermath of Trump confirming, What is Past is Prologue:  allowing our Gettysburg Address to define each of us to all of us.

To the degree, as country and individual, we discover, and digest the direct line of America’s ascending homegrown tyranny in our nation’s trajectory through Nixon’s Watergate, Reagan’s Trickle Down, Bush/Cheney’s Great Recession, we will understand how we were bathed in the racism, sexism, religious hypocrisy and white supremacist prep for Trump/Pence.

When, if not Tuesday 3 November 2020, will we progress from our sea to shining sea troubles, and by opposing Barr/Stephen Moore/Mnuchin/McConnell/Pence/Trump vainglory mirage, end their reigning weight on our backs?

The freeing truth that hurts most is, ignorance is not bliss, denial is the Opioid of cowards and change is terrifying – but progressing forward anyway, is the courage of unsung heroes – for without the valiant, humanity and its planetary home are doomed.

So now, let us invite the wisdom that comes from investigation, making We the People, affirmation, to never again tolerate what we ourselves have wrought.
