Get out the Vote - November 4

Hey man, respect and everything for believing in what you do, but if youre anti capitilist my blog is going to piss you off. I am about as capitilist as it gets. Voluntaryist is how I identify but damn private organizations are the key to the future

These private organizations are destroying the planet and enslaving humanity for their imaginary gain. And I understand. I’m a libertarian.. the government should do the bare minimum. But scarcity is necessary for a capitalist system. There is no sustainability. It will make the planet uninhabitable and before that create a huge wealth gap in the world. We live in a world where 34,000 children a day die because of poverty while the 50 richest people in the world can end poverty 4 times over. 

Ok…. sources for those stats?? Also in the us its the government who are passing the laws that are squeezing the middle class.

globalissues.org/articles/715/today-21000-children-died-around-the-world

Oh, only 21,000 died. Daily. My bad.

www.forbes.com/billionaires

Top 10 richest people in the world = $519,800,000,000

50th richest person in the world = $18,000,000,000

Do the math.

Also, who controls the government? Who pays for the candidates campaigns? Big business. It’s like a beauty pageant. Big business sponsors their favorite runner, and then act as if we have a say in it. 

Yeah, now imagine if their was no one to control that had the final say??? People will not work for a company that fucks them. People will work for a company thar benefits them. say, if more than a few corporations were controlling what happened in congress, maybe something would actually happen there

Also that link only talks abour billionaires and their income HOW DOES THAT PROVE YOUR POINT YOURE AN IDIOT

Fincas, dude. Fincas. 

Read about the capitalism run amok in Central and South America. Without any sort of regulation, you can pay pennies for work being done. On top of that, if you control enough of the market, you can also dictate where the few meager dollars made can be spent - back on the finca with it’s self-operated stores and booze! Not to mention, with little to no regulation there’s no such thing as “human rights”. So you can be dousing your workers with chemicals that may be known to induce cancer, like the DDT which is still used in Guatemala that was used widely in the US but ultimately outlawed in the US by the 1970s. Who did that? The EPA. 

This would also mean that things like sexual harassment and other human rights violation complaints go nowhere. They don’t exist. So why not just get another job? What if there are no more jobs in town? Lack of regulation means monopolies are more than possible. You make it sound like anyone can just get the capital to start up a new business. Can that be a reality when the wealth is centralized in a singular location?

What I don’t understand, and I’m open to discussing the subject, is how exactly is “the government squeezing the middle class”? If anything, when jobs are allowed to be shipped over seas to avoid taxation, there’s a bit of a chicken-or-the-egg going on. If there were no taxes, would these companies still stay in the US? If so, how would their corporate structure help the anybody outside of its company? How many companies are altruistic? If it isn’t a lucrative act, will anyone take it on? 

I’m not saying capitalism is bad. It spawns a lot of progress. But to not have anything monitoring its progress, a lot of shit can go down in a minimal amount of time. Especially when most people are so short-sighted they don’t care what kind of disaster can follow their actions.

As someone in the fishing industry, you should know that the regulation of fisheries is a necessity for a renewable resource. Look at how horribly overfished the east coast is. Look at how the Chinooks have been taking a big hit lately. Without the state and feds monitoring their progress and numbers (not to mention the potential for companies to pollute their ecosystem), it might take generations for the salmon to bounce back - if they can.

The government is the closest thing we have to altruism. it can become corrupt, just like any other entity, but at least in theory there’s a potential for choosing who we get to represent us and how - which is a lot more than you can say for most corporations - unless you happen to own a piece of the pie. But maybe that’s the problem with our current government - too many corporations are allowed to get their hands into the cookie jar. And then you blame the government for its shitty (greedy) behavior instead of the actual culprit.

 An Okvik ivory figure,
St. Laurence Island, Northwest Coast, circa 200 B.C. - 100 A.D.
This figure is a fine example of the Okvik culture, which flourished between 250 B.C. and 100 A.D. on St. Lawrence Island. Objects made by the Okvik were first discovered by the island’s inhabitants in the 1920s, and then again in the 1930s during excavation work. They are considered to be the masterpieces of the region’s pre-historic art.

Knecht says that most sites in the Lower 48 provide just ‘stones and bones’, but at the Araliq site they get, “Things like utensils that people used in their daily lives. We get bentwood bowls and scoops. We get ul’us with the handles still on them. We get grass baskets for example, complete grass baskets and woven mats. We’re getting things like weapons and kayak parts, masks and artwork, things that you normally just see in museums. And these all date from between about 1400 and 1600 AD.”

And hundreds of hair samples Knecht says, likely clippings from haircuts were also preserved at the site. Some of those clippings contributed to the study of indigenous Alaskans that was featured in the journal, Science, this summer.

“We contributed about 33 hair samples to the study and I think that’s more than any of the sites were able to produce. Just because of the extraordinary preservation here,” Knecht said.

Nemo 33 by John Beernaerts, 2004

The world’s deepest indoor swimming pool is located in Brussels, Belgium. Its maximum depth is 34.5 meters, 113 feet, and contains 2.5 million liters of non-chlorinated, highly filtered spring water maintained at 30°C/86°F. The pool holds several simulated underwater caves at a 10 meter, 33 feet, depth level. There are also numerous underwater windows installed into several of the pool’s caves in order to allow outside visitors to look into the pool at various depths. The complex was designed by Belgian diving expert John Beernaerts as a multi-purpose diving instruction, recreational, and film production facility.

Take. Me.

Birch polypore (Piptoporus betulinus)
This is a good maybe even one of the best medical mushroom to know. Especially if you you enjoy long hikes.

It is used for all sorts of things. I use it for cuts during hikes. It is kind of like a natural bandaid, but were It shines is in dealing with foot damage, blisters, cuts, cracks and scrapes. It’s rubbery and spongy consistency allows it to work as padding and it is a antiseptic/anti-inflammatory. It cools and gets rid of redness better then anything else I have tried. It is fairly common here, and it is easy to use just cut a sliver (plaster) take off your boots and socks and slid it in. I get moisture crakes all the time and using neosporin on toes just gives me squishy toes, and hurts more then helps. A couple slivers under my toes fixes me right up and feels good too. It seem to speed up healing, and I have been told it stops scarring, but have not used it for that. As far as I am concerned what it does for my feet is more then enough to make it a important mushroom, but it is also used in tea as a tonic, cleanser and immune booster etc.. The Ice man had it on him, and people speculate on what he used it for.

Metapodial Pathology

I’m helping pack up the zooarchaeological collection at my school. We don’t have too much in the way of pathologies, but today I found this caribou metapodial. It appears the animal may have suffered an ugly break, but was able to heal the bone long before death. The sulcus on the posterior face of the metapodial includes abnormal plumbing with small foramena that could have allowed for a unique blood flow passage created during the healing process.
