» The Old Guard Puts Its Trust in Money as it Faithfully Serves Mammon

I could go into mind-numbing detail on this aspect right here .. where economics is used as the weapon-of-choice by those who value money above all else.

The Worship of Mammon

Here is an image of a supplicant petitioning Mammon for money.

» A Bizarre and Disturbing Interview with Prosperity Preacher by Inside Edition

Speaking of the generation that worships money .. check out this bizarre and disturbing interview of so-called Prosperity preacher and televangelist Ken Copeland (82) by Lisa Guerrero for Inside Edition (3 May 2019).

Prosperity televangelist Ken Copeland being interviewed by Lisa Guerrero for Inside Edition (3 May 2019)

Wow .. check out the look in his eyes here. I wonder what Kyle thinks of this interview. I wonder what Ana thinks.

Note that this section about Lisa's interview with this prosperity preacher grew large enough that I moved it to its own page .. see here » Peddling an Adulterated Version of God's Message for Profit (6 June 2019).

» When the Values of the Older Generation Clash with Those of the Younger Generation

Perhaps I will delve into these discussions more later .. about people who worship money. But now is not the time for that.

Simply note here that » this means war .. economic war. The shit is on .. in a big way. Game on.

It's a War of Values. Old values vs New values.

Charlotte Alter knows what I am talking about (21 March 2019).

Charlotte Alter speaks to the factors behind AOC's authentic voice (21 March 2019)

Beautiful work, Charlotte. Most impressive. Much respect. Kudos to you.

You see exactly where people's true values lie in times like this. (This kind of thing gives me a total boner.)

» The Old Guard (the Past) vs the New Wave (the Future)

Note here that Nancy Pelosi is 79 years old (born in 1940).

Nancy Pelosi responds testily to a question about AOC's victory over Joe Crowley

How many more years do you reckon that she has left to live here in America?

» You Are Not Going to Solve 21st Century Problems with 20th Century Thinking

The next highest-ranking democrat after Pelosi, Steny Hoyer, the House majority leader, is even older than Pelosi.

House majority leader Steny Hoyer (born 1939)

He was born in 1939. He will be 80 in a couple of months.

You ancient fuckers need to retire and go home. You should make like Dubya and take up painting as a hobby.

Or maybe do a little gardening. Grow some roses. A thousand-piece puzzle or two should keep you busy for however many years you happen to have left to live.

At 80 years old, you already have one foot in the grave. So you might want to take some time to make peace with your Maker.

You can't say that I didnt try to warn you.

Havent you octogenarians fucked-up the country enough? Your values suck.

I bet that Eric Swalwell agrees with me here.

California Rep Eric Swalwell calls on Joe Biden to Pass-the-Torch to a new generation of Americans (27 June 2019)

The Skimm girls are sweet on Swalwell.

theSkimm girls, Carly and Danielle, are secretly democrats (28 June 2019)

(Try saying that five times fast.)

You are not going to solve Twenty-First century problems with Twentieth century thinking .. with a Twentieth century mindset.

I wonder where Joe Biden would happen to fall on this list of oldest U.S. presidents (at the time of their inauguration).

Oldest U.S. presidents at time of their inauguration (by Jennifer Rosenberg, 25 May 2019)

(This is exactly what got us into this mess.)

The folks at the Intercept and Naomi Klein and Molly Crabapple all know what I am talking about.

The Intercept and Naomi Klein present a message from the future with AOC (17 April 2019)

Contrast Pelosi with AOC, who is 29 (born in 1989).

AOC the Phenom, Time magazine cover story by Charlotte Alter (21 March 2019)

You dont need to consult any actuarial tables to see that AOC will still be alive and living here long after Nancy Pelosi has become food for worms.

Fifty years represents two generations worth of time passing.

The generational revolt of the 60's occurring in the early part of the 21st century (9 April 2019)

In other words, Nancy Pelosi represents the past, while AOC represents the future. (Moses knows what I am talking about.)

Charlotte Alter knows what I am talking about (21 March 2019).

'Change Is Closer Than We Think.' Inside the Unlikely Rise of AOC by Charlotte Alter (21 March 2019)

The establishment seems more interested in protecting their own wealthy interests than those of Us-the-People or future generations.

This is why I feel that the youth vote should be weighted more heavily than the geriatric vote .. because they will be living with the consequences of the decisions made by government officials long after people like Nancy Pelosi are dead-n-gone.

It is only too obvious why the generation that is passing away is not very concerned with setting up the next generation of Americans for success.

» Interesting Commentary on the Rift Created by the Generational Divide (Pelosi vs AOC)

There is an interesting commentary here (15 April 2019) on the Majority Report of an interview that Lesley Stahl did with Nancy Pelosi for 60 Minutes.

Lesley Stahl interviews Nancy Pelosi for 60 Minutes, Sam Seder comments (15 April 2019)

.. where Lesley Stahl is calling bullshit to Nancy's face on Pelosi's attempt to minimize and downplay the widening rift caused by the generational fracturing of the Democratic party (29 vs 79).

Speaking of the past and the future...

Results of 2016 Democratic primaries and caucuses among voters under 30 (at t=4:30)

Hillary (age 71) and the entrenched Democratic establishment does NOT represent the future .. and this is why they can go fuck themselves .. the sooner the better.

It's just a matter of time now. Dont say you werent warned.

» AOC the Centrist Advocates for Policies that Benefit the Broad Majority of Citizens

AOC and her like are simply trying to move the national pendulum back to the levels of inequality that we had 40 years ago.

This is why Nick Hanauer calls AOC a "centrist" (at t=6:20) ..

Billionaire Nick Hanauer says AOC is the true Centrist because she advocates for policies that benefit the broad majority of citizens, unlike Howard Schultz (30 Jan 2019)

.. because her policies are designed to benefit the broad majority of citizens .. and not just a handful of super-rich Billionaires .. who already have more money than they know what to do with.

I wonder what Krugman thinks of this.

A similar portion of the American people also feel that the Carried Interest tax loophole should be eliminated.

So why does it keep existing year after year? .. despite politicians all claiming publicly that it should be eliminated .. in order to make the tax laws less accommodating to the super-wealthy.

Go ahead and take a wild guess.

At t=8:00 she provides part of the reasoning and rationale behind her opinion and why she feels this way.

She makes this statement to Ta-Nehisi Coates, who is a leading educated voice representing the black experience in America. He is the guy who wrote the piece titled » I'm Not Black, I'm Kanye (7 May 2018).

» On the Cusp of a New Political Epoch

Michelle writes here (15 Feb 2019):

If we are in fact on the cusp of a new political epoch, then a sweeping, idealistic plan for social transformation is not a wild fantasy but a practical necessity.

Where she references Yale political scientist Stephen Skowronek's concept of "political time." Food for thought.
