Welcome to America: There’s Gotta Be Something Better Than This Crap

This was my MLA Final Project for Graduate School in Humanities at St. Edward's University in Austin, TX!!! The goal is to eventually turn this into a full theatrical stage production.

In this online presentation, I focus on social justice and equality, and I cover the present unbalanced state of the American economy. I also explore the effects that capitalism and corporate greed have on the United States from an underprivileged, impoverished and homeless perspective, and promote a more community oriented socialist approach as an alternative. This is an interactive multimedia pr

US government moves to end daily COVID-19 death reporting by hospitals 01/21/2022

US government moves to end daily COVID-19 death reporting by hospitals

On February 2nd, hospitals will no longer be required to report COVID deaths directly to the federal government, and such data will depend on state governments, which are themselves moving to shut down reporting.

There is no public health justification for the limiting of data reporting in the midst of a raging pandemic that is currently setting records for infections and hospitalizations. And just like under the Trump administration, the efforts by the federal and state governments to limit reporting on COVID-19 is driven by political agendas to cover up the number of infections and deaths.

US government moves to end daily COVID-19 death reporting by hospitals The US federal government will no longer require hospitals to report the number of people who die from COVID-19 every day, according to new guidelines from the US Department of Health and Human services.

His farewell speech has many Americans fearful of the future.

What's wrong is now right, and what's right is now wrong. This world as we know it, especially in America, is getting to a place of darkness. It can be so dark at times that very few people have the light to navigate through what is really happening. Many folks get caught up in the rhetoric of the messages being sent out, and become like robots, following along blindly.

Could The Next Blackout Be More Deadly Than Katrina? 01/20/2022

Could The Next Blackout Be More Deadly Than Katrina?

With Climate Change making temperatures more extreme each year, like we recently saw in the great Texas freeze and the Northwest heatwave, large-scale power outages become a matter of life and death. In 2003, a few transmission lines went down in Ohio leading to cascading failures across the Northeast and over 50 million people losing power. This event points toward critical vulnerabilities in our aging power grid. Could a power grid failure during an extreme weather event be the most deadly weather disaster in US history? And what can we do to prevent this kind of catastrophic blackout? Watch this video to find out.

In fact, the internet is breathing new life into ideas that have been doing the rounds – sometimes causing mass murder – for centuries. In this episode of Truth Hurts, Bupé Bhima takes a look at how today’s biggest conspiracy movements are just recycling the same old, evil lies.

FDA faces legal challenge over COVID-19 approval data, report says 01/10/2022

FDA faces legal challenge over COVID-19 approval data, report says

Public Health and Medical Professionals for Transparency sued the FDA under a Freedom of Information Act and seeks more than 400,000 additional pages about the approval process, Reuters reported. The FDA has offered to release 12,000 pages by the end of January, and "a minimum" of 500 pages a month going forward, which the group said could mean that it may be 2097 before all documents are made public, the report said.

Aaron Siri, the lawyer representing the plaintiffs, posted on his Substack that it is "dystopian for the government to give Pfizer billions, mandate Americans to take its product, prohibit Americans from suing for harm, but yet refuse to let Americans see the data underlying its licensure."

In this online presentation, I focus on social justice and equality, and I cover the present unbalanced state of the American economy. I also explore the effects that capitalism and corporate greed have on the United States from an underprivileged, impoverished and homeless perspective, and promote a more community oriented socialist approach as an alternative. This is an interactive multimedia project, which involves community participation.

This is an open forum and it was originally for research purposes. The project requires that genuine participants “Like” this page and post thoughtful messages on the topics, leave insightful comments or provide suggestions about the current state of the U.S. economy – racism, oppression, unemployment, low wages, poverty, homelessness, health care, the government, viable solutions to the economic problems, etc. So please get involved in the conversation! Let's keep the movement going... Thanks!
