“It’s a Sad Day for Many of Us”: Bernie Delegates Boo Sanders After Endorsing Clinton

*We can argue endlessly about how to vote, but what I want to know is what the fuck are we gonna do once the election’s done?

All this unstinting praise for Madame Mayhem sticks viscerally in my craw, when I think of the death and destruction she’s wreaked here and around the globe.

Will all those who choose The Lesser Evil ™ work from day one of her reign to ensure the evil emanating from the Oval Office is the absolute least it can be?

If my vote would put Trump’s slimy sphincter on the Presidential Potty, I’d let out a primal scream as I cast my ballot for Her Travesty

But it won’t, and thus I won’t.

What I will do is try to tell the unvarnished truth about whomever is leading us into the abyss, and what I can to avert that all but certain fate.

Regardless, Hedges “wins”, hands down

And regardless, come November

Beyond Panic and Punishment: Brock Turner and the Left Response to Sexual Violence
A familiar and narrow framework has crowded out any consideration of how we can address sexual violence without reanimating calls for harsh sentences
by Sarah Cate

*Cate’s argument is well reasoned, and while I understand her perspective on the consequences of recalling Persky, for me this wasn’t an example of a case where a judge imposed a lesser sentence in the interest of fairness, but did so because he identified on a race, class and gender basis with the defendant.

He protected his own.

Recalling him may well have a deleterious impact on the inclination of judges to indeed seek fairness in sentencing, and that must be resisted, but to my mind Persky’s decision had nothing to do with that quest.

Decision fatigue can lead to poor choices of what to buy and eat
What strategies do you use to stay focused?

Nutrition Action

*Eating real food and seeing and feeling the benefits of doing so is a powerful impetus to avoid poor choices.

The increased energy and mental capacity I’ve experienced as a result of the changes I’ve made dissuade me from ever going back to the crap I used to consume.

Focus on progress, not perfection. These habits took years to form, and they won’t be overcome overnight. You might be surprised, though, at how quickly you develop new ones when you begin to feel and look better.

And I can testify that real food tastes real good. You don’t have to be a cordon bleu chef to whup some tasty grub. Some imagination is all that’s required.

Dr. Lawrence Brown and TRNN executive producer Eddie Conway say the protests and conversations around police brutality aren’t just about systemic solutions, but the real and immediate pain

*A different world would have a different role for “policing”, which
was created to oppress, not protect, the populace, especially the
“other”. It “evolved” from the slave patrols, and serves the same
function in the present day.

Individual sociopaths are mere symptoms of a sociopathic system. Even
if every one was charged, tried and convicted for their crimes, more
would follow in their blood stained shoes.

Like the capitalism it serves and protects, no amount of “reform” will
alter its basic nature.

Just as we have to reimagine economic relationships, we have to
reenvision the concept of “law enforcement”.

No number of consent decrees will achieve that goal.

The Illusion of Security
by Robert C. Koehler

*A “lack of training” doesn’t excuse a lack of humanity, but who engenders that sociopathy?

It is a conscious decision by those in power, designed to perpetuate their positions.

Accountability exists at all levels, but responsibility is reserved for the rules makers.

Until they are brought into the dock, there will be no true justice.

Will a Tax on Sugary Drinks Lead to Better Choices?
by Ty Bollinger

*I don’t see a simple solution to this, but I believe it starts with education and listening to the folks most affected.

Give people the facts about this poison, and how their purveyors place profit over the pain it causes. Then solicit their views on how best to confront this crime.

The attitude of “This is for your own good”, without engaging those affected in the determination of how that good is achieved, is disrespectful and ultimately self defeating to the goal of healthier lives.

For many, sugar is an addiction, and it will be very difficult to kick that habit. It’s vital that any policy prioritize early education to prevent this scourge from consuming yet another generation, as well as sensitive strategies for breaking its hold on those already in its grasp.

Any plan must be developed by all those with a stake in the outcome, or the problem will not be solved.
