5 Nov 2020 – Well, it’s over. Not the election. The capitalist democracy. However biased it was towards the rich and hostile to the poor and minorities, the capitalist democracy offered the possibility of incremental and piecemeal reform. Now it is a corpse. $1.51 billion for the Biden campaign and $1.57 billion for the Trump campaign — to make us think there are choices. There are not. The empty jousting between a bloviating Trump and a verbally impaired Joe Biden is designed to mask the truth. The oligarchs always win. The people always lose. It does not matter who sits in the White House. America is a failed state.

Released from prison, he was tossed onto the street, without financial resources and, because of fines and fees imposed on him by the court system, $7,000 of debt. He ended up broke in a homeless shelter in Newark–filthy, infested with lice and bedbugs.
