    An idea – get a website where everyone wanting a third party can sign. Anyone worried about viability will be able to see all the tens of millions willing to vote. Put a basic policy list on there to make it clear. Then put put forward presidential and candidates for every congress seat available. Publicise this!

      Cancel all debt. After this total disruption, it’s time to 0 out the debt and everyone can start over. It’s been done before after certain crises and it worked. It will kickstart the economy. Since debt is the way the rich get richer, we need a clean slate and level playing field. The Jamie Dimons of the rich boy’s club will have to suck it up and tighten their belts.

    I wonder if Obama found the “comfortable shoes” he left on Branson’s private island so he can join us on the strike? Oh wait, they’re on Oprah’s yacht and she’s hiding out in the middle of the ocean. He may not be able to get them back in time to help. Damn, maybe next time….

    I have thought about this throughout the year. Jimmy you are absolutely right. We can’t do it. We can’t pretend that the shift of the powerful means they can tip. Do we have enough power to tip it? I don’t know. But if Cenk joined us and we Third-partied this system, I think we could get power. If my sisters-in-law, all white and college-educated suburban of the three of us supported Sanders. There’s way more than we thought. And we are a lot madder than we were before they held voters over the fire and dared him to let us all due if he didn’t drop out.
    The failure of the stimulus has pissed off more. We had enough to scare them into joining together to defeat us.
    Would Sanders stop being so whipped puppy and come back to us or do we go to Tulsi? Crystal?
    Strike like your life is going to be snuffed out by the rich…. Because it will be. Nature has rebounded and we will all be so shocked to see that we, too, can recover from the war we have waged against ourselves for 20 years. Strike while the other side is immobile because their reason for being, the president, has muddled up so much that they can’t respond….. And I don’t mean only the Rs. Ds are as distracted. Let’s go! Bull Moose all the way. The third party, Independents already have the me and the mascots and the majority of the voters!
    We will miss the best opportunity in our lifetimes. They won’t let themselves be caught out like this again. Contact tracing with our cell phone system is supposed to keep us from getting sick, but if that were true than why do contract tracing when without testing it is expensive and useless. Ask yourself why die hard capitalists would jump so fast to cell phone-based contact tracing given it’s cost and uselessness without testing. I’ll wait.😷😷😷 in quarantine.

      You’re saying, “IF this happens, we can…. Or IF that happens we can…”
      Why wait? These are all the excuses that the middle class use to keep themselves safe. When you stop expecting someone else to do something, you will finally be mad enough to do something yourself.
      Go read Dr Gene Sharp beginning with From Dictatorship to Democracy.
      Fighting back is scary, but he said that fear breeds submission, and that you have to get over it to be effective. Our society has many ways to keep us in fear: fear the germs on your kitchen counters; fear your food: cholesterol, expiration date, and germs; fear the bugs in your back yard and *buy* a spray; fear what people will say… All these keep you in submission.
      Break free!

    Personally – got fired for trying to work from home when lockdown announced but boss said no. She let other workers who supported their family as sole income owners leave employment a week early. I filed a whistleblower claim with OSHA as I believed going in was dangerous and there was certainly no reason. As an attorney, I can make calls and write stuff from my home. I had moved two weeks prior from CO to PA for this position. Now I am locked down without employment, all money I had spent on getting out here, no support group, 1200 for all expenses and dependent on the kindness of politicians.

    I’m in this union, https://www.ufcw21.org/

    It’s the largest grocery/retail workers union in Washington state. I’ve been listening to their conference calls the past month and they haven’t once mentioned a strike. Maybe you can help?

    I work at a busy grocery store in metropolitan Seattle. We don’t feel safe at all. The company is clearly not doing enough (limiting customers, making us wear masks, etc.).

      Then you need to talk to your rep and look at other strategies. If you don’t have a rep at your workplace YOU are it, you can’t be passive. Have you contacted or tried contacting the people involved in the calls?? If they are unresponsive, talk to other workmates plus workers at other stores to try and get things moving in the direction you all (majority) agree upon.

      If that fails you need to look at moving/forming a new union. This isn’t easy none of it is but the current system is already extremely hostile to you, you have to push back asking someone else to do it is a road to failure. That said you do need to ask for help from those around you if they are unwilling in the current climate then then dystopia that has been put upon other countries by the US is coming home harder then many are used.

    An fascinating dialogue is worth comment. I feel that you need to write extra on this topic, it may not be a taboo topic but typically persons are not sufficient to speak on such topics. To the next. Cheers

    Extinction Rebellion Tucson is leading a citywide general strike that will be on the first of each month for as long as people can strike for. Can I send the fliers we made to The Jimmy Dore Show so people can print/distribute in their communities? They have been made by us using input from multiple activist groups.

    Jimmy Dore and friends are my heroes, and inspire me to be as heroic as I would like to be. Also the yellow vests in France. I bought one and I wear it constantly.

    For someone that’s no good at organizing, you’re doing a fine job! Now if only those protesting to open up the beaches would realize they got screwed on the stimulus and join us 🙁

    Yo, been trying to get #BoycottAmazonTuesdays going on the twitter since Feb, but im just a dude agitating for justice and not getting much traction. Its a good idea, revolving, sustained Big box strikes.
    #BoycottAmazonTuesdays
    #BoycottHomeDepotSaturdays
    #BoycottWalmartMondays ,etc.

    Love some help, doing what I can to fight the man.

    Per mainstream news on May 15th, workers at a Ralph’s store in Los Angeles’s Koreatown went out on strike to protest Kroeger’s (Ralph’s parent company) retraction of the $2 per hour “heros pay” that Ralph’s workers had been receiving.

    As a customer of a different Ralph’s store not that far away, I commented about this action to 2 employees. There was more than passing interest.

    At the Lomita Post Office on Narbonne Ave., I observed an extremely unsafe condition where tiny plexiglass barriers had been erected, but they were off to the side of where customers and employees conducted transactions. I commented to the worker who expressed fear of the situation but also hopelessness. “We’ve raised it with the postmaster here but he won’t listen to us. Will you call him please?”

    My point is that people other than the overwhelmed and desperate workers can and should get involved. Talk to the employees who are serving you. Agitate a bit. Offer support for any action they and their co-workers might want to take. Ask how you can help. Offer to make contact with employees with similar interest at other stores of the same type. Exchange phone numbers so you can follow up.

    My point is that just because you are not directly effected, it does not mean that you can’t help to facilitate some rebellion. Think of yourself as an organizer. . . and be one!
