Captioned Article (The Federalist)
It’s technically not racism, because the only people who are discriminated against are white.
Last week, President Biden signed the American Rescue Plan Act into law. The bill, comprised of $1.9 trillion in the name of “COVID relief.”
What most don’t know about this bill, however, is the small provision known as “Section 1005” that authorizes the secretary of agriculture to make payments of 100 to 120 percent of the “outstanding indebtedness of socially disadvantaged farmers.” Under this provision, those included in the socially disadvantaged category are American Indians, Alaskan Natives, Asians, Blacks, Native Hawaiians, Pacific Islanders, and Hispanics.
Putting aside all of the Washington jargon that makes little sense outside of a committee hearing room, this provision—specifically written into the American Rescue Plan by Democrats—pushes a blurred vision of so-called “social equity” by providing relief for farmers based on the color of their skin. Rather than offering much needed relief to all farmers, Sec. 1005 prioritizes race, just as it would ethnicity, sex, or any other factor.

A Discussion of your Betters
(The Bell) It’s in interesting article, worth a read. The Republic was replaced by an oligarchy and I find it odd that Americans still discuss, “our democracy”. That ship sailed.
You have no meaningful choice. As George Carlin, patron saint of calling out neoliberal bullshit, RIP, put it:
“Americans are led to feel free through the exercise of meaningless choices. There are only two political parties. There is a reduction of the number of media companies. Banking has been reduced to only a handful of banks. Oil companies. These are important, and you’re given very little choice…. You know what your freedom of choice in America is? Paper or plastic.”
High society is “a big club – and you ain’t in it.”
Final Thought: Intelligence guided by experience tells us the establishment and deep state will never change on its own. If the first nine eggs have proved to be rotten, don’t be thinking you’re going to be making an omelet out of the tenth.
