Freakonomics Wants to Take Politics Out of Politics

Sep
20

The NPR show, Freakonomics, thinks that the best way to improve our political system is to do away with our two political parties [link]. Yeah, right. Such a solution only makes sense if you totally ignore what each party stands for - which of course is what Freakonomics does.

I also admire the total lack of alternative opinions from maybe elected officials, etc. The party that passed Obama Care is not the same as the party that gave tax cuts to billionaires:

“The Affordable Care Act, also known as ObamaCare, was passed in 2010 with zero Republican votes in Congress. President Trump’s 2018 tax-reform bill? Zero Democratic votes.“

To ignore the obvious differing agendas suggests an obvious agenda on the part of Freakonomics.

Sep

Stopped by the striking nurses at UIC this afternoon. There were union groups on both the east and west campus but the majority were naturally on the west side near the medical center. They were nice enough to give me one of their 'SEIU 73' buttons! Great people!

NYTimes put out a pretty complementary article on how elections are managed in Massachusetts. They also included this interesting feature for tracking ballots online:

Ms. McReynolds also pointed to an online ballot tracking system that Massachusetts set up this year, which allowed voters to track the status of their ballots and allowed them to be proactive if any problems arose.

What America Needs

Sep
01

Great lecture given to current president by Mayor of Portland:

What America needs is for you to be stopped, so that we can come back together as one America while recognizing that we must demand that all people, black, brown, white, every color from every political persuasion, pull together and hold all people accountable in stopping racism and violence. We together are peaceful again under new leadership that reflects who we really are. We the people of this great nation.
