Sooooo muchneed to be writing about here and so little time to do it all. Until then, here’s other stuff people have writing and news that happened over the past week or so.

 

Meh. I had decided to bullet point this and now the formatting is a bit wonky, but I don’t have time to fix it right now. Apologies.

  1. I feel as if you simply channeled my collected thoughts (via your collection lol) in this post!! Everything. More than I knew: Revutionary Proletarian Militant. I’d been searching for this label and am so glad to know it’s out there. Thank you thank you for reaffirming the belief that We The People en masse hold an entirely different idea for our country’s future. We must wrest it from the plutocracy (being nice here) at the ballot box and stand up and be heard starting now, everywhere we can, or be ourselves the tired, poor, wretched refuse, homeless, yearning to be free in America.

  2. In the area I live in we have two choices for grocery stores. One is a save up to 40% store which carries some brand names. The produce isn’t always that good—you have to eat it right away—and some of the off brands are just really bad in taste. However, overall it is good. They reduce items like bagged spinach and salads and meats when they are getting close to the expiration date, which makes it more affordable to prepare a healthy meal. The other store—-very clean, everything you need is there….but so expensive. I was told that items like almond milk, soy milks, and other grocery items that would not be everyday purchases for alot of us, are DUMPED down the drain!!! when they start to reach the expiration date. A relative of mine lives in an area where a group of volunteers goes around to the grocery stores and collects items that are getting ready to expire and donates them to the local food pantries. So low income families can reap the benefits of almond milk, organic food, and even much needed supplements. If a store considers something a loss—why not donate it instead of dumping it down the drain? Most foods are good for awhile beyond the expiration date anyway. Such a waste in this country. Other countries that see this go on and are appalled. There definitely needs to be change in the supermarkets.

  3. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied
    on the video to make your point. You clearly know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just
    posting videos to your blog when you could be giving us something
    informative to read?
