In my November issue of National Defense (I am a life member of National Defense Industrial Association), an article mentioned that two ocean-going freight ships are lost at sea EVERY WEEK in the oceans around the world ! ! ! That is approximately 104 ships sink every year due to storms and other calamities. Another article on the internet says that 100,000 shipping containers are lost at sea every year! That is amazing!

I am a life member of National Defense Industrial Association, and in the September issue was an article on the new F-35 Joint Strike Fighter that was developed recently. The Marine Corps is buying several hundred of these, and our U.S. Air Force is buying several thousand of these to replace the "aging" F-16.

I question the validity of the U.S. Marine Corps buying such aircraft to replace the Harrier Jump Jet (vertical take-off and landing jet fighter) which aircraft I can understand; the the intent of the Harrier Jump Jet was to be able to directly support combat troops without requiring a runway. It seems to me that our U.S. Navy and U.S. Air Force can supply the fighter aircraft necessary to support the U.S. Marine Corps. If the U.S. Marine Corps wishes to render the Jump Jet obsolete or designate it aged for retirement, then wouldn't attack helicopters do just as well with support from U.S. Navy fighters?

The New Jerk Times often publishes crap like this! It is an extreme stretch of the imagination to even suggest that artificial intelligence (which is an oxymoron) borrowed anything from evolution! Artificial intelligence is the product of human ingenuity to use technology to replace human workers and to effect fantasy games which mimic, if not corrupt human awareness and activities. Technology is the enemy to human employment, and is the enemy to human Democracy by eliminating we humans in our being interfaces with events and knowledge. In short, so-called artificial intelligence, which is purely data-mechanical, makes human existence become obsolete.

Apparently there really are people of integrity in our State of Maine:
Turner LP management has announced that they are no longer delivering propane to Trump supporters who voted for Trump. I do not know how they know who voted for Trump, the election system is not set up that way, but then that is WCLZ news for you, that's what WCLZ said!

At any rate that would not be a commercially-viable method of doing business in Maine, which is a state more prone to anarchist mentality than to Democracy mentality, but the management of Turner LP would be exercising genuine social responsibility in conducting such commercial exclusion, since Trump conducted himself in the 2016 election campaigns in the same manner as Adolf Hitler did.

Genocidal President Assad proves to the world that he is a genocidal liar. And Putin's Russia supports this evil regime in the same way that Putin's Russia invaded Georgia and Ukraine and murdered the Chechnya freedom movement demonstrators. President Assad has ample influence from Israel's Asad and Mosad infiltrations of Syria, and from Russian designs on controlling the 'middle'-East by using Syria for its surrogate instigator of turmoil and instability.

Tucker Carlson is the epitome of a propagandizing saboteur of rationality and truth. Carlson's diatribe is exactly the corrupted mentality of Trump and his supporters which is to ignore factual truth and to create aggressive assertions to argument bully (a.k.a. portray) critics of trump as being as bad as Trump himself without admitting the truth that Trump is a blatant lying propagandist.

This terrible crime to humanity is a documentary of what Israel has been doing to the Palestinian indigenous people for the past seventy years as a nation; Israel was created by England in 1946 and the newly-formed United Nations was propagandized by US President Harold Truman to approve Israel as a nation in 1948 even though the UN has ABSOLUTELY NO POWER OR AUTHORITY to create or approve of nation creating ! Note the beauty of the former urban city of Gaza before it was destroyed by Israeli mortars, rockets and bombs at night when civilians would be at home asleep! This is a true crime to humanity and Israel like any criminal officially says that the UN has NO AUTHORITY over Israel as a nation!

Back in September I received an undated newsletter from someone whose relative I am acquainted with, so I will not name this person. I also noticed the printed postage mark said Bangor, when the district served by this individual is way south of there, his district is of Augusta, China, Oakland, Sidney and Vassalboro.

NEWSLETTER INTENT
The legislative newsletter appeared to be innocent of political motivation in a legal wording format, but actually it concealed important issues to deceive effect and legality from the public's understanding. Thus, the newsletter was biased. There is a lot of lip-service in almost all political newsletters, as a matter of fact, so this was actually a polite subversion!

DRUG DEALING INVASION
The newsletter praised the State hiring ten new Drug Enforcement Agency agents, a good move, but heralded peer support centers, which as I have already disclosed in my previous book review, peer support-mentality centers seldom work.

TAX REFORM
Republifascists the nation-over have propagandized about tax cuts to business, and this newsletter did so by calling it "relief" for commercial interests including wood harvesting businesses ! ! ! The paper industry and construction industry have devastated the natural old growth forests so that the entire ecology has changed radically, and the quest for virgin old-growth forest has nearly come to an end outside of national and state forest preserves ! Additionally the public prejudice toward internet has come close to destroying the publishing business, as publishing has fallen to the use of electronic medium, so the Maine State government wants to eliminate tax charges on the wood harvesting business! Where is the image in real life that Maine today is The Pine Tree State ? ? ?

In addition, the newsletter heralds the State legislature for "conforming Maine's tax code to the federal code", something I have mandated for some time in all states. But these changes appear to be written in favor of multinational corporations, not to the public or to family-owned businesses! In addition to this, the newsletter makes mention about "Maine's growing demographic crisis wherein Maine's population is aging faster than the national norm and younger people are leaving Maine for employment. That is not what I see, in fact I feel Maine is becoming a suburb of Bahston ! ! ! ! So the newsletter advocates attracting investment that welcomes technology and as people ignore so happily, I will say again that if you support technology then you support the elimination of employment, since eliminating employees is the entire goal of what technology does ! ! ! !

WELFARE REFORM
The newsletter celebrates the so-called Welfare Reform legislation that was recently enacted, but this reform is a Red-Herring. Rather than specifying that welfare can only be used for essential sustenance commodities, this law is an adversarial assault on citizenship ! Welfare benefits already exclude toothpaste and mouthwash!

CITIZEN GUN RIGHTS
If anyone properly looks at the poorly written words of the Second Amendment, the Second Amendment applies to citizens within an official militia serving to protect the organized public good and safety, the Second Amendment never specified any universal citizen gun ownership rights in general public application ! ! ! The Second Amendment never specified gun ownership for hunting purposes! There was an issue that occurred in Maine about shooting ranges already being used which were challenged by municipalities; the new legislation prohibits municipal ordinances which restrict or terminate shooting activities that have already occurred on a regular basis. Now, what if developers create urban sprawl which becomes a hazard for being in close proximity to a shooting range, or in which new neighbors complain about gun range noise?

PROTECTING MAINE FIRST RESPONDERS
This legislative enactment was purely mentally immature and emotional. The legislation first of all needs to define what is an officer. It then should exemplify who an officer is, such as police and fire line personnel, EMT supervisors and lifeguard supervisors, so forth. Then it must specify protections as well as obligations and restrictions for officers and personnel in clear concise wording.

When I was a transit bus driver in Orange County California, it was required by Orange County Transit District that all transit supervisors must pass the police academy and then are sworn in as county deputy sheriffs ! ! ! The only difference between a line deputy sheriff and an OCTD transit supervisor is that a line deputy wears a khaki shirt with black tie and badge and a transit supervisor wears a white shirt with black tie and badge, and the line deputy sheriff's car with light bar and shotgun in the front window says on the trunk "Deputy Sheriff". The transit supervisor's car with light bar and shotgun in the front window says on the trunk "Transit Supervisor". I would like to praise my former supervisors that they never showed any egocentric pride or superiority over their being sworn officers, they were very professional and congenial, and, there was never a deputy or supervisor more than five minutes from any transit bus if law support was required.

GREENHOUSE GAS TAX REBATE TO BUSINESSES
This legislation is a travesty! This tax legislation amounts to a rebate of the taxes that were intended to fund programs aimed at reducing or curtailing ozone-depleting pollution! In other words, a more clear phrasing of this is that it is a loophole to evade addressing Global Warming, which is a critical issue! This legislation is typical commercial communism of business interfering with Democracy, a trade-mark mentality of Republicans!

ANTI-CAUCUS LEGISLATION IN MAINE
I celebrate this legislation! A caucus should be illegal in any political election from the federal level to the local level, because caucuses are a political machine action and activity that superimposes itself over the public will. Only a Primary gives the citizens the right to vote, as the caucus is a committee which is separate and above the public realm.

EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES FOR STUDENTS
There are no educational opportunities for students -- anywhere in our USA! The colleges and universities nation-wide since the 1990s have been transformed into technological trade schools by being turned over to commercial interests, such that even medical doctors are now blue collar worker scientific technicians and telemarketers for the $30-TRILLION (p)harmaceutical industry!

The day of academic disciplines of study has long been forced into the past, due to indoctrinating education being commercialized and privatized at the State level even in the public sector! The (p)harmaceutical industry's contributions are so great to the public education sector that the (p)harmaceutical industry literally controls the academic departments and operates university research programs! Rue the thought of medicine actually curing people at the expense of all that revenue the (p)harmaceutical industry would lose!

This is pseudo-"politics" in Maine, which as I have been saying for the past decade-and-a-half, "the Republicans are the bank robbers and the Democrats are the look-outs and get-away-drivers," and Democracy of and by the people has been forfeited because no nation in the world has the least right for its population to be so stupid and gullible as is the population in our USA!" -- Libris Fidelis
