The Labour leader is facing a no confidence vote over his "lacklustre" campaign for a remain vote. He vowed to fight off any leadership challenges, and told one activist who heckled him as he attended a Pride march in London: "I did all I could."Attended a homosexual march. Self-explanatory sentence if you know the obvious facts. Obvious facts: Brexit succeeded BECAUSE Labour voters got out and voted. Labour voters made the difference. REAL Labour voters. Union men. Working men. Former coal miners. Former steel workers. Men who had good jobs before globalization. And in Britain, globalization mainly means EU. Corbyn has NOTHING to do with those union men. He has EVERYTHING to do with Globalism and Gaia and Die-Versity and Trans Things and Homosexual Pride. His utterances on economics are jumbled and confused. Conservatives accuse him of being Marxist, but he's got Marx all wrong, just as Bernie does. Here's a couple paragraphs from the 1977 SOVIET Constitution.
The state exercises control over the measure of labour and of consumption in accordance with the principle of socialism: "From each according to his ability, to each according to his work". It fixes the rate of taxation on taxable income. Socially useful work and its results determine a person's status in society. By combining material and moral incentives and encouraging innovation and a creative attitude to work, the state helps transform labour into the prime vital need of every Soviet citizen.To each according to his WORK, not his NEEDS or ves GENDER FLUID. Doesn't sound like Freestuff. Doesn't sound like Homosexual Pride or Die-Versity. Sounds just like Graybill. Sounds like the proper and correct CIVILIZED damping of natural inequality. Status in society is determined by the results of your work, not by your attractiveness or the precious metals in your name. Labour voters in England and Populist voters elsewhere remember a time when our system approached that ideal without having it in the Constitution. We know it's possible because it HAPPENED. Things that HAPPEN are possible by definition. = = = = = Sidenote: It's fun to watch the Express changing its headline and picture as more and more Labor MPs pull out of Corbyn's shadow cabinet. Since he doesn't have the sense to resign, the party is seceding from him. Especially wonderful since the mutiny is a contest to see who can be most ANTI-LABOUR. Corbyn wasn't ANTI-LABOUR enough for his assistants, so they're trying to kick him out and find an even more ANTI-LABOUR leader for Labour.
Polistra was named after the original townsite of Manhattan (the one in Kansas). When I was growing up in Manhattan, I spent a lot of time exploring by foot, bike, and car. I discovered the ruins of an old mill along Wildcat Creek, and decided (inaccurately) that it was the remains of the original site of Polistra. Accurate or not, I've always liked the name, with its echoes of Poland (an under-appreciated friend of freedom) and stars. ==== The title icon is explained here. ==== Switchover: This 2007 entry marks a sharp change in worldview from neocon to pure populist. ===== The long illustrated story of Polistra's Dream is a time-travel fable, attempting to answer the dangerous revision of New Deal history propagated by Amity Shlaes. The Dream has 8 episodes, linked in a chain from the first. This entry explains the Shlaes connection.
