This is clearly an attack, a la Rockefeller, on those small, independent businesses. (Those items will remain available at retail outlets.) MCM p.s. The section on "what you can do" is blank.
Why, then, does the race-obsessive New York Times, and all the rest of "our free press," not talk about it? (Because it's not Hong Kong?) MCM
God bless the only US presidential candidate who's ever tried doing anything about our rotten voting system, or has even talked about it. (Bernie hasn't.) MCM
This trend—a mass demand for surgical mutilation—is not a sign of progress, nor is it in anyway "progressive" to embrace it, or promote it: on the contrary. On the one hand, it's a highly profitable trend for the medical-industrial complex, which makes millions off those surgeries, despite the copious evidence that they won't leave those who undergo them any happier, and that many will eventually regret them. Moreover, this is not a social justice issue, but one aspect of a public health emergency, whose recency should give us pause. Why has the number of teens identifying as "trangender" spiked 4000% over the last ten years (in the UK)? That sudden rise suggeststhat some environmental factor has affected sexual development—such as (for example) the use of atrazine, a pesticide that causes sexual abnormalities in frogs. When scientist Tyrone Hayes made that discovery, noting its possible ill effects on human beings, he was silenced by its maker, agribusiness giant Syngenta. (While banned in the EU, atrazine is used in the UK, although the government "controls" releases of the chemical, whatever that means.) On the 4000% spike in gender dysphoria: https://www1.cbn.com/cbnnews/us/2018/september/4-000-explosion-in-kids-identifying-as-transgender-docs-perform-double-mastectomies-on-healthy-teen-girls On the silencing of Tyrone Hayes: https://www.democracynow.org/2014/2/21/silencing_the_scientist_tyrone_hayes_on Far from treating this dysphoria epidemic as a public health concern, US elites are applauding it, and thereby pushing it—as in a bizarre new Sprite commercial thatpitches not that soda per se but breast-binding. (Scroll down.) Why on earth would Coca-Cola (Sprite's owner) pitch their product in that way? That's not a rhetoricalquestion. One last point: Both pieces linked here are from right-wing outlets: Breitbart and PJ Media. Despite such provenance, both articles are wholly sound—the first, from Breitbart, by Dr. Susan Berry, a highly reputable pediatrician at the University of Minnesota. That her piece is on Breitbart, and not in (say) the New York Times, surely tells us more about the "liberal media," and its tendency to idealize "genderdysphoria," than it does about the author's politics.

The one-child policy is evidently not the only way that state has sought to cull its population. MCM
The ongoing disaster that our social justice warriors, and Donald Trump's fierce base, don't talk about. MCM
Wise words for the faint of heart, from my friend the Swami Beyondananda (who'd sent me the link to the Jennifer Jaynes story). MCM
Thanks for picking this up.
The progressives’ unwillingness to confront “conspiracy theories” that happen tobe actual conspiracies leaves it to folks like the Health Ranger to pick up on, and has fueled the myth that somehow Trump will remedy these situations.
I mean “shitutations.” Below is something we got from Sayer Ji of Green Med. “Apocalypse” means lifting of the veils, and, as Swami says “the truth shall UPSET you free.” May it be so.
Why no outcry over this horrific treatment of Assange? That he's held under such conditions—orheld at all for making information publicly available (i.e., doing journalism)—and that there's nota peep about in "our free press," makes quite clear that it's more dangerous than ever just to tell the truth in the "free West." (Just imagine what we'd all be hearing if Assange were rotting in someprison under Putin, or in China.) MCM
Why no such movement in the US, where Amazon workers suffer no less than their European peers (who should be comrades)? On those forced to go right back to work after one employee dropped dead on the warehouse floor: https://nypost.com/2019/10/19/amazon-workers-forced-to-go-back-to-work-after-fellow-employee-dies-on-shift/ On the 911 calls from workers in an Amazon "colony of hell": https://www.thedailybeast.com/amazon-the-shocking-911-calls-from-inside-its-warehouses And from today's New York Times, an unusually good piece (by Scott Shane) on Amazon as master of all Baltimore: https://www.nytimes.com/2019/11/30/business/amazon-baltimore.html We need a push to break up Bezos' empire, and one grand boycott of his holdings. There have beenmoves against Whole Foods for very different reasons—for its supporting Drag Queen Story Hour, foradvertising on Breitbart, and now for Whole Foods Magazines naming Mitch McConnell "Person of the Year." So what if all those outraged liberals and conservatives joined forces to make Bezos feel the pain?Wouldn't that be something, in this fractured polity? MCM
Why no obit in the New York Times, or news of this in any major outlet? MCM
