Freedom from Corporatocracy

@bexarkat: taken from where I live, the name Béjar is of pre-Roman origin. The original form was Bigerra and is said to mean "place of the beehives." "Béjar" could be an adaption from the Spanish word abeja, which means "bee." An older spelling of the city's name is Béxar.

The rapid gentrification of Austin, especially East of I35, is primarily due to a bill […]

Then […]

A new idea for PotUS elections

For the last 16years, I have run Green Party “primaries” in Texas, from the precinct level to the State level, and participated as a voting delegate to the national presidential nominating convention.  During those years, we started with IRV (instant runoff voting), and experimented with numerous other methods, mostly for multi-seat elections, and presidential nominations.

Ending White Supremacy, a convo of ideas

Racism has made a swift comeback to the fore of society.  It is no longer hidden in shadows, something only “ignorant hillbillies” do, etc., since desegregation and affirmative action. Obviously those regulations were facades of fixes. Our institutions are based in racist, sexist, ableist, etc. policies that must be dismantled, not merely regulated. (And undoing […]

ppl who believe you want genocide of a people because you support BDS of an apartheid state

“Just get it over and kill all the Jews once and for all.” She* said, to my shock and horror. “yikes!!” i replied. “Isn’t that what you want?? Jew are evil and Palestinians are victims? True?”, was the reply. my retort: the thought offends my ethics. “evil” is subjectively loaded to herd the population controlled […]
