SOCIALISM IN THE USA? CAPITALISM PLUS!

Bill Maher waved off concerns about socialism as a creeping threat in America and pointed to its potential to improve quality of life for citizens nationwide, dubbing it "capitalism plus."

On Friday night’s episode of HBO’s "Real Time with Bill Maher," the host appeared alongside a screenshot of Fox News host Tucker Carlson near the words "The cost of socialism," similar to the dire reports that often appear on the network to condemn policies deemed "far-left."

Maher waved off the warnings, asking: "If socialism is such a one-way ticket to becoming the nightmare of Venezuela, then why do all the happiest countries in the world embrace it?"

The host was referring to the countries ranked highest in the 2019 World Happiness Report including Finland, Denmark, and Norway, which are all "socialism-friendly." The United States was ranked 19th, despite low unemployment and crime rates.

Instead of socialism replacing capitalism, Maher said socialism’s influence in addition to capitalism could ease crushing economic pressures like healthcare.

"The right has a hard time understanding the concept that we don’t want ‘long lines for bread’ socialism," Maher said. "We want ‘you don’t have to win the lotto to afford brain surgery’ socialism."

Pointing to the countries ranked happiest, as captured by a number of factors including resident satisfaction and well-being, Maher said greater economic ease creates more room for a happier life.

"Happiness isn’t only about what you have, it’s also what you don’t have to worry about," he added. "Turns out, freedom from the fear of ending up in a tent below the overpass is a really great freedom. It’s called peace of mind."

Addressing the repellant nature of the word "socialism," Maher said, "let’s call it Capitalism Plus."

Concerns over socialism have remerged in recent years as high-profile Democrats including Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez openly identified as Democratic socialists, which stoked responses from conservative media that harken back to fears rooted in the Cold War-era threat to American ideals from the Soviet Union.

What is the Belt and Road Initiative?

China’s massive Belt and Road Initiative has proved controversial in many Western capitals which view it as a means to spread Chinese influence abroad and saddle countries with unsustainable debt. “This obviously shows a lack of objectivity and fair understanding of the Belt and Road initiative. It is a misunderstanding, misjudgment and is even prejudiced,” wrote Yang Jiechi, a former foreign minister and ambassador to Washington.

Cranes stand at a construction site by a Chinese company in Colombo, Sri Lanka. China has never forced debt upon participants of its new Silk Road project as “prejudiced” critics have suggested, the country’s top diplomat said on Saturday in a strongly worded defense of a key policy platform of Chinese President Xi Jinping.

Xi’s Belt and Road Initiative, as it is formally called, envisions rebuilding the old Silk Road to connect China with Asia, Europe and beyond with massive infrastructure spending.

But it has proved controversial in many Western capitals, particularly Washington, which views it as merely a means to spread Chinese influence abroad and saddle countries with unsustainable debt through non-transparent projects.

The United States has been particularly critical of Italy’s decision to sign up to the plan this month, during Xi’s visit to Rome, the first for a G7 nation.

Speaking to the ruling Communist Party’s official People’s Daily, Yang Jiechi, who runs the party’s foreign affairs committee, said he had noted that some in the international community believed this was a geopolitical tool and would only bring debt traps for participating countries.

“This obviously shows a lack of objectivity and fair understanding of the Belt and Road initiative. It is a misunderstanding, misjudgment and is even prejudiced,” wrote Yang, a former foreign minister and ambassador to Washington.

China has stressed many times that the Belt and Road is to promote joint development, he added.

“The Belt and Road is open, inclusive and transparent. It does not play little geopolitical games. It does not engage in the exclusion of exclusive small circles.”

Yang noted that many countries, companies and ordinary people participating in the Belt and Road project had “publicly refuted rumors” about it being a debt trap.

Belt and Road projects, from their selection to their financing, go through careful risk assessments and the initiative’s principles stress sustainable development, he said.

“For cooperative partners who have debt difficulties, China’s principle is to appropriately resolve this through friendly
consultations, and has never pushed or forced debt” on anyone, Yang added.

To date no participating country has faced a debt crisis — to the contrary many countries have been able to escape the “no development trap”, he wrote.

China will hold its second Belt and Road summit in Beijing in late April.

Yang said almost 40 foreign leaders would take part, but did not name them. Some of China’s closest allies have already confirmed they will come, including Russian President Vladimir Putin, Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan, Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte and Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen.

Best Essential Oils for Asthma

You can help asthma with essential oils of LavenderLemonEucalyptusPeppermintBergamotFrankincense, and Breathe Clearly Essential Oil Blend.*

Lavender, one of the best for asthma attacks, can even be used during an attack. Inhaling steam or the scent will help to open airways and reduce inflammation, while also relaxing lung spasms.*

Lemon and Peppermint are also effective oils to use during an attack. Lemon even helps dissipate any panic due to its relaxing properties. Using lemon regularly will also help reduce asthma attacks. Peppermint can help with a headache or nausea that accompanies an attack.*

Bergamot is ideal for preventing asthma attacks. Rub on the bottoms of feet to avoid stress or a triggered attack.*

Frankincense is also helpful in preventing attacks.*

A great option for those with asthma is to get a massage with essential oils.* Use a carrier oil such as jojoba, grapeseed, or almond, and add a few drops of essential oils into the carrier oil. Massage the mixed oil over the upper back. Start with lavender and then use eucalyptus.

Also, try to find out what’s triggering your asthma. If it’s allergies, then lavender, peppermint, or lemon are good choices.* If it’s exercise, peppermint will help to keep your passageways open.*

Experiment slowly and carefully, and figure out what works best for you, your asthma, and your body.

Breathe Clearly Essential Oil Blend

Though many use the Breathe Clearly Essential Oil Blend for congestion and colds, it is also effective against asthma attacks.* Breathe Clearly contains Eucalyptus (a decongestant), Lime (clears the mind and has antiseptic properties), Lavender (relaxes air passages), and Pine (increases circulation).

Read here for more information about essential oils and how they may help support asthma symptoms.*
