    NOT the mainstream neo-McCarthyist media…some intelligent discussions:

    ‘Derangement syndrome’

    https://www.rt.com/shows/crosstalk/434994-trump-mainstream-media-derangement/

    “Do the corporate mainstream media fuel America’s cultural wars? Do they magnify political differences? It would seem so. How else could it be that the only topic that is discussed and argued over is Donald Trump? Are journalists infected with Trump Derangement Syndrome?

    CrossTalking with Rob Taub, Lionel, and Patrick Henningsen.”

    …and Stacy and Max:

    https://www.rt.com/shows/keiser-report/434884-episode-max-keiser-1261/

    “In this episode of the Keiser Report, Max and Stacy discuss the radical shift in party allegiance along income and education lines that the 2016 election brought to the fore: Republicans are now the party of the working class and the Democrats the party of the rich, reversing a decades long voting pattern. What does this mean for the 2018 midterms and beyond?

    In the second half, Max interviews Karl Denninger of Market-Ticker.org about why a trade war is needed and how it can be won. They also discuss the latest news on the deep double digit falls in social media stock prices.”

    4 year old news report, but a sign of our over dependence on synthetic materials, including plastics, for items we use for so much, clothing, shopping, packaging, housing and what else there is to be used:

    A newer report of equal concern:https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2018/mar/15/microplastics-found-in-more-than-90-of-bottled-water-study-says

    We have plastic and synthetics everywhere, tiny plastic particles fill the oceans and more, and so we debate about some alleged ‘crypto fascists’ like Southern and Molyneux, but fail to address what humanity needs to address right now, besides of climate change and endless other issues.

    What a joke humanity has become, a sick joke.

    Time to face and resolve the REAL challenges:
    https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2018/mar/12/microplastic-pollution-in-oceans-is-far-greater-than-thought-say-scientists

    All we get is talk, talk, talk, farts and burps, and nobody fronting anything, that needs to be done, with this government, same as the last one, and probably the next one.
