A Man Named Cenk

There once was a man named Cenk, Progressive, strong, I mean the man was a tank. He started a show in a really, small space, he took that show and put hypocrisy in its place. Out of the internet, he rose to television screens, where he told them to put up or shut up, the guests thought he was mean.

They Occupied Wallstreet, cheered the Sanders campaign, the Justice Democrats were born, uncorrupt and unchained. They were laughed at and looked down upon by the establishment reign. But, #WeThePeople thought differently it was time for a change. These are still early years with more battles in the war, can they be won? I say Of Course!

The Movie Brazil (1985) And What It Got Right

#ThursdayThoughts While watching The Young Turks segment today regarding the treatment of workers at Amazon, I was reminded of the movie classic, Brazil (1985), directed and co-written by Terry Gilliam. The film centers on Sam Lowry, a man trying to find a woman who appears in his dreams while he is working in a mind-numbing job and living in a small apartment, set in a consumer-driven dystopian world in which there is an over-reliance on poorly maintained (and rather whimsical) machines. Brazil’s satire of bureaucratic, totalitarian government is reminiscent of George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four.

Thinking about the movie with today’s realities and concerns that so many of us face, healthcare, workers rights/treatment, criminal reform and governments monitoring their civilians. Pair that with our always-on, connected lives, moving closer to an ever automated future. Seems a pretty accurate portrait of today. If you’ve never seen it or even if you have, check it out.

Age Of Progressivism In The United States

I had an epiphany last night. It started when Bernie said that he would more than likely have a younger, female running mate. So, I thought of Tulsi or some other strong progressive woman, maybe Nina? Anyway, that would mean whoever that woman is, she would have an opportunity to be in the White House for nearly a generation, 12-16 years and that would be huge. That being said, I’d have no problems with replacing Bernie with Elizabeth in that scenario. And even though Bernie & Elizabeth would be the progressive “dream team” and awesome, the length of time having  Progressives in office would end up being a net loss, due to both of their ages. And they say we’re not “pragmatic”, I think the above demonstrates, pragmatism🤔.#YearOfThePeople2020 #MARGPhoto by Lina Trochez on Unsplash

2020 The Year Of The People!

2020 The Year Of The People

Building upon the “Blue Wave” during the 2018 United States mid-term elections, Progressives all around the country will continue to stand up to the corruption that’s infected our government and Representatives. With the #GreenNewDeal and #MedicareForAll polling at record levels with the majority of Americans, Progressives are cued up to make 2020 the year of the people. #YearOfThePeople2020
