To the Point

There comes a time in every epoch when pragmatism simply evolves into extreme acquiescence and surrender to the forces of apathy and do-nothingness, a guarantor of the status quo in all of its easy, democratic criminality--its fortress of greed. You could line up all the pols in the U.S. in a straight row and examine them head to toe and not find a single man or woman capable of admitting, never mind ending, the corruption of their vocation--Buddy Dooley

Ghosts

Right before our eyes, we are seeing the transformation of single payer Bernie Sanders into public option Howard Dean.

During the 2016 Presidential campaign, Sanders took off like a rocket, fueled by the promise of a single payer, Medicare for All single payer system.--RM

Bernie Sanders takes the pragmatists' neoliberal bait--again.  The US is rife with industries that exploit people, none moreso than the health insurance and big pharma scams that control our healthcare system today.

I heard a congressman on NPR early one sleepy morning last week. He blamed American divisiveness on the Russians who poisoned our minds late last year.

The interviewer let it slide in silent agreement.

Among thieves, it is always the other guys' fault, you know?
