Disability movement is ‘part of the global working class’

Posted by Collectivist
"It has been 30 years since passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act.  I was born in 1996 so I grew up under it, and the word that comes first to mind when I think about the ADA is access.   I was lucky to have a wonderful advocacy team in school, but when I graduated and moved into the wider world, having experiences and talking to other disabled folks, I discovered how rare that is.   Like many disabled people I am unemployed.     The blind community alone faces a 75% unemployment rate.   Like many folks, especially during this time period, I receive government benefits.    It’s not enough to live on and a little too much to die.   It seems we have the right to accessibility, but not the access itself.   If you have more than $2,000 and are on Social Security, they can cut you off.     Yet things like accessible equipment, health care and paying for necessary services are expensive — not to mention rent, bills and food.  Many disabled folks are trapped…

Letter to the editor: The Democrat operating system is satanism

Image
The revered apostle of the Democrat Party is Saul Alinsky who dedicated his book, “Rules for Radicals” to Lucifer. Alinskyism is subtle Bolshevik Communism but also calls for fraud, deceit, slander, false propaganda, immoral tactics to gain power. Alinsky motto, “Don’t shoot until we have the power." There is no vision of the future, just tear down existing social structures and remove Constitutional protections. Every city and state that Democrats control have become cesspits of poverty and crime. California, Los Angeles, Seattle, Chicago, etc. The Democrat platform for 2020 is a package of immoral and financial fraud designed to put the coffin nails in what was the United States — two of which are discussed below.
The Democrat’s high sacrament is abortion. Abortion anytime after conception is against God’s will. Democrat supported baby slaughter houses, such as Planned Parenthood, encourage late term abortions and even post birth abortions, even though modern science provides th…

Bryant has already spent nearly 23 years in prison for the crime. Paul J. Richards/AFP via Getty Images A Louisiana man will continue to spend his life in prison for stealing a pair of hedge clippers, after the state's Supreme Court denied his request to review a lower court's sentence.Fair Wayne Bryant was convicted in 1997 of stealing the hedge clippers.

Weather experts issue most threatening hurricane forecast yet

The 2020 Atlantic hurricane season is racking up storms at breakneck speed. To date, the season is about two weeks ahead of record pace and it's only one third of the way through. On Wednesday, the news became more concerning as the research team at Colorado State University (CSU) — the standard bearer for seasonal forecasts — released the most dire forecast in their 37-year history. Labeling the 2020 hurricane season "extremely active," the team is now predicting 24 named storms, including 12 total hurricanes and 5 major hurricanes — each figure about double that of a normal season. If the forecast proves accurate, 2020 would be the second most active Atlantic hurricane season, behind only the record-shattering 2005 season which brought Hurricanes Katrina and Wilma. Only 21 storm names are allotted each year because the letters Q, U, X, Y and Z are not u…

Who are you?

Identity… we all have one. It’s the personal foundation around which we tend to live out our lives.It occupies a central part of our being. True, it can change with time and circumstances, but as Paul McCartney penned in a great song, and I so agree, “We always come back to the songs we were singing, at any particular time.” Rather profound, IMO. So how do people basically tend to see themselves?Well, many see themselves, their identity, as mostly reflected in, for some examples, their ethnicity, their race, their sexual orientation, their religions association, their academic achievements, their political standing, their social standing, their health choices, their occupation, etc.Many facets can and do make up who we each are.It’s true that we are not any one single thing. But it’s also true that we are, first and foremost, certain specific things.That’s where I’m going with this OP.I want to know what you see as the current foundations in your life, at this moment in time.As John De…
