Vital Info: “Sticky” Posts Now Listed Here [2/8/2017, rev. 5/26 and, again 6/19/2017]

Adjusted Title of this post:  Vital Info: “Sticky” Posts (Now Listed Here)   [2/8/2017, rev. 5/26/2017]

With its WordPress-generated, case-sensitive short-link ending “-5MQ” that would be: Vital Info: “Sticky” Posts (Now Listed Here)   [2/8/2017, adjusted 5/26/2017] {{INCLUDING THAT SHORT-LINK HELPS ME, THE BLOG ADMINISTRATOR (AND THE ONLY ONE POSTING HERE) KEEP LINKS ACCURATE AS I AM WRITING POSTS CLOSELY RELATED IN  SUBJECT MATTER SERIES, WHEN POSTS ARE REFERENCED, SPLIT, OR EXPANDED}}


The post’s former motto, displayed in top-right corner, has been obscured by the title once I upgraded the blog. I moved the former motto into the title (Site Identity) area, and changed the motto. It’s still not fully visible, so, for the record, here it is as of “Q1” 2017:

‘A Different Kind of Attention Develops Sound Judgment’ | ‘Suppose I’m Right Here?…’ (posted 3/23 & 3/5/2014).

 So, the blog motto clearly references two posts (no longer “sticky”) which demonstrate my practices (“A Different Kind of Attention“) and my basic question, based on those practices over now many years, “Suppose I’m Right Here?  What Would You Do When the Lights Go On?”  (Would it change your personal cause-focused social media behavior or “leisure time”?) If I’m right (and I typically link to supporting evidence and coherent connections between the various parts of it; if there is missing evidence or improper connections/assumptions others can see) what logical (even if seemingly impossible at first) changes should be made to major systems, infrastructures, and practices involving “business as usual” in the public sphere– which is in effect now a “public/private partnership” sphere?

If you (personally) are just not willing or able to make any significant changes to what you repeat, parrot, re-blog or even what you look into regularly, to better understand public/private financing, government statements, federal grants as distributed, the grantees, or the multitude of professional associations developed around basic governmental positions (National Governors Association, and MANY others others), then on what basis are you complaining about government practices?  These practices occur in the context of networks of nonprofit organizations which conference with each other and with membership, often out of sight or out of mind of the average citizen. ****

**** I keep encountering more of this type of nonprofit association, some which have existed for decades, others (such as the National Council on School Facilities) are recent creations. This post will explain, and list more:

Published without tags, about 13,500 words (including captions to its many images), Friday, June 16, 2017.

By the time you read this, if you’re still in denial about the extensive networks of private associations involving government officials on the board, or restricted to them as members (but — hey, let’s not reject some donations — not as sponsoring partners or “Associates”) and that while government at different levels continues to fund such entities, they aren’t exactly advertising the inter-relationships on gov’t websites, or the financials on the association websites — and that these associations operate in the private, nonprofit sector with intent to affect the government sector (at all levels) bypassing normal input from citizens — then please seek personal help.  Fast.  You’re cognitively disabled.

New professions and fields of practice (leading to the overuse of the word “practitioner”) are created through public institutions sometimes as an apparent consequence of these trade organizations.  When those in them and setting them up know more about the status of government entity financing than the citizens overall, where is the balance of power?
