America’s 2017 Derangement Tour continued this week. Starting of with Kathy “PLEASE LOOK AT ME!” Griffith proving that Democrats can be as eliminationist as their fellow conservatives in the Republican Party. Faux Outrage was seen on all sides…
Meanwhile, in the center ring, Democrats are whipping up outrage over Trump’s declared intention to back out of the Paris Climate Accord. Of course, James Hansen, the man who first warned of of climate change calls the Paris Climate Accord, “A complete fraud, it’s just bullshit for them to say: ‘We’ll have a 2C warming target and then try to do a little better every five years.’ It’s just worthless words. There is no action, just promises. “ So maybe the outrage is a bit vaporous, if you weren’t worried that the PCA was fraudulent to begin with.
Across the Pond, Corbyn has some truly revolutionary ideas: ” ‘Alternative Models of Ownership’ makes the case, rarely heard today, that we can tackle the roots of economic injustice and inequality, not just manage their effects. Democratizing ownership can move the UK economy away from the short-termism of the rich, who profit from unproductive, low-wage work. Socialists have always sought a high-productivity economy, where common ownership translates productivity gains into less work, more leisure, and a better life — as Corbyn says — for the many, not the few.”
It’s so simple, only a right-winger could fail to understand it: Boost the minimum wage and you boost the economy from the bottom up. Armine Yalnizyan discusses the simple reasons raising the minimum wage kick-starts the economy, and examines the Ontario government’s proposal for a $15 minimum wage.
“Do you think we’re gathering compromising information on all of them right now or something? Have you all lost your senses over there?” Putin indirectly addresses the plutocrats’ Russian Derangement Syndrome. NBC tries to play gotcha games, but the old devil is to sly for that. Meanwhile, the Plutocratic Media has been forced to take note that everyone knows Seth Rich was the one who gave the DNC emails to Wikileaks, and move into full “media demonize” overdrive.
