…God doesn’t think she’s Bill Gates

a PSA: Green candidate Howie Hawkins has a running mate


Via email from his campaign yesterday:

As our movement continues to gain traction, we came to realize a few things:

  1. The evidence speaks for itself. People have grown tired of having their needs ignored by a corrupt establishment and are rallying to the Green Party to help build a fair and sustainable future for our country.
  2. The issues that our campaign is championing truly are the issues that resonate most with the American people. The support that we have received and the stories that you have shared with us only solidify that this movement towards an Ecosocialist Green New Deal is exactly what the country needs to navigate these trying times in our history.
  3. It was time to announce a running mate for Vice President.
    The ideal running mate had to be someone with experience on the front-lines of these issues. They had to be someone with the ability to communicate with language and conviction that others can understand and believe. Fortunately, she answered the call!

The title is a column from Pepe Escobar, strategic-culture.org, May 5, 2020 (Creative Commons w/ attribution) (h/t: open-thread commenters at MoA) Please consider this by way of a PSA, as my grasp of the subject is minimal.

A new, radical paradigm shift is in progress. The U.S. economy may shrink as much as 40% in the first semester of 2020. China, already the world’s largest economy by PPP for a few years now, may soon become the world’s largest economy even in exchange rate terms.

today is the 50th commemoration of the Kent State Massacre

Some background from my life:

I went to Kent State as an early admissions high school student in 1967 and 1968, where I stood in vigils against the war as we were photographed us from the roof a building next to the student union.  We were a sure we had FBI files, but who knows? Paranoia strikes deep…

In 1968 I went to CU, Boulder, and when Nixon’s secret bombing of Cambodia was announced, at about noon the streets exploded with furious protestors: a motley crew, which included men and women in suits who’d walked off their jobs.  The rage was palpable: fists punching the air, chants of various kinds.  We marched to the city/county building, but to what effect?  None, really, save maybe a photo-op?  Later a Student Strike was called, and some of us later occupied a few seemingly relevant buildings (admin?; I’ve forgotten), but no one seemed to care.  No arrests, no notice, no nothing.  We all went home just before dawn feelin’ a bit let down, maybe even…silly.
