The English have their own Trump
His name is Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson (AKA Boris or BOJO).
He’s a former journalist who has served as Prime Minister of the UK and Leader of the Conservative Party since 2019.
On October 3 the Vermont Workers’ Center will hold a March for Medicaid in Bellows Falls. This is part of a national week of action coordinated by the Workers’ Center and the Nonviolent Medicaid Army, a growing national force fighting for universal healthcare and all economic and social rights for poor and working class people. The campaign is calling on Governor Scott to protect Medicaid by cutting the state’s contract with OneCare, a for-profit company siphoning off millions in Medicaid funding that should be spent on people’s healthcare, and to make good on Vermont’s commitment to universal healthcare as enacted in Act 48.
Just when it looked as though the current political climate in this country could not get any worse, events unfolded that have pushed us closer to unprecedented constitutional and human crises. Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a Supreme Court justice who changed the world for the better, has passed on. Her legacy will last for generations and life will be better for many Americans years after her death.
But the Republican politicians in Washington want to shorten the mourning period and act quickly to move the court as far to the right as they can. They have vowed to place a Trump appointee as quickly as possible and, because our government no longer serves the people, the minority viewpoint will prevail and the court will tilt to the right for too many years.
The polls so-far don’t look too good for Trump’s re-election.
His ego will not accept a defeat. He WILL go to extreme measures to prevent this.
One extreme measure might be a war.

Time once again to notice little things around town. It’s the easy add-a-comment diary designed so you can just jot a sentence or two rather than write entire paragraphs or stories. Simple!
To get you started:
Renaissance Antiques has a sign saying it is closing.
Amy’s Bakery has a sign saying it is for sale.
The West River water level is very very low.
The Fish & Chips parklet seems larger than the actual restaurant. And what a huge sign!
Noting the history of the child genocide in Yemen as only one example of America’s genocidal foreign policy and cruel criminal media managed political distraction away from compassionate public interest, article seeks to awaken enough of a feeling of outrage to promote public demand for a halt of what is the ongoing murder of a massive amount of children.
