OK this is conclusive evidence the Right Wing will bark at ANYTHING

I looked on Yahoo about the eclipse. It’s true. The Trump Zombies were complaining about the eclipse and blaming Barack Obama. This is stupid of cosmic proportions. It’s official, the Stormfront Base for the Republican temporary victory, have completely lost their minds. I wondered, many times, would these emotionally stunted undereducated rednecks actually blame the Vast Liberal Conspiracy if it doesn’t rain or if it does rain, if the sun comes up in the east, if just any event far beyond the control of anybody or all of humanity collectively, these titty baby candy-ass professional complainers will find fault, not on the part of God or more importantly their social structure, of course. Maybe it’s that they themselves create their unhappiness over anything they don’t control? BLASPHEMY! Off with my head!
There’s another possibility. Maybe the trolls are actually bots programmed to respond to any writing on any subject.


At last a reasoned response in the Statues issue…

It’s a little bit flawed but it works. Robert E Lee could have made a few statements for Abolition and since he was wildly popular in the south it might have stopped the secessionists in their tracks. So I have a habit of posting my viewpoint on many forums. Like yahoo news. The New Confederacy is well represented there, usually very incoherent and really, on behalf of my white relatives, they should shut up and stop embarrassing everybody else who happens to be of the same complexion. And they bitch, whine and snivel that somehow yahoo is silencing and censoring them. I can’t tell… I guess some people see enemies everywhere. But this cat was a little more educated and less hate filled (I hope) and he responded to one of my posts.

So, what were they doing at the synagogue?

The nazi “protesters” in Charlotte, you know. They and their ridiculous president keep saying they were only ‘defending’ themselves when one of their Storm Troopers rammed a car into a crowd. Only defending themselves waving around assault rifles. So why did they also besiege the Synagogue, during shabbat services? What’s their excuse for that? I know that some can’t separate the government of Israel from Judaism, Jewish ethnicity and for that matter Crusaders. Let’s for fairness appearance add in whatever fringe movement within Islam, Zen, Buddhism, Tao, the 7 million gods of India (I have no idea about the exact number nor did the British author who first published it)…. But the nazi marchers went after a Synagogue which wasn’t part of their announced itinerary. And that wasn’t the only discrepancy of their post-hate crime explanation/slash/excuse.

Trump to anti-racism People: Fuck Off And Die

The Punk In Chief is considering pardoning Joe Arpaio. After a long investigation and proof, not just evidence, that he targeted darker skinned people for traffic stops and kangaroo court detentions, especially with his personal fetish for dressing male prisoners in pink panties, which would be a sex offense if a civilian did it. If a civilian so much as prevents another person to leave, restraining another person in any way, it’s kidnapping. Making the person perform degrading actions is an aggravating circumstance. Like forcing people to work for his corporate masters/accomplices and of course sexual harassment which doesn’t just border on rape, that’s a border he has no conscience about blowing past at 90 miles an hour. If he needs somebody to help him resolve his fetish for pink panties there are bars in Phoenix where he would probably get somebody to force him to wear pink panties. Instead he chooses to use government resources and abuse of power to beat down other human beings and essentially rape them. The Pig establishment, the kangaroo kourts at every level of “law enforcement”, actually took action to the civil rights abuse, a slap on the wrist for a much reduced charge. But he and fellow titty-baby Trump feel even that is too much. Neither of them could commit their crimes without a lot of backup, from racist retards like Back The Badge, the various Police unions and equally cowardly prosecutors, judges and congress”men”. This on the heels of Trump waffling about condemning the Nazi rally in Charlottesville. He’s been praising them with faint damns. To twist the words of The Bard. He tried to pull a fast one by condemning the people who opposed the blatant assault, terrorist threats and pure racism. Make no mistake, Joe Arpaio and his ilk, (Like Terry Maketa and Congress’man’ Doug Lamborn) are terrorists. They attempt to frighten people, to change social, religious and governmental institutions. Terrorism. al Qa’eda was never so prolific in promoting terrorism. That, and their sheep-like and probably sheep-raping supporters LIE to portray their actions as anything less than Terrorism. They’re criminals and should be treated as such.


Trump says he’s sorry we don’t condemn the storm troopers he sicced on us.

I made the title kind of sidewise because that’s what his condemnation of “all sides” looks and sounds.
Klansmen are the longest-running Terrorist group in America. Their Leaders, like Robert E Lee, were too cowardly to stand up for the rights of all humans, even slaves, to freedom. Lee didn’t denounce the Klan, didn’t denounce the slave codes which allowed the lazy plantation aristocrats to rape or even kill their ‘property’ laws prohibiting the slaves from being paid for their labor or to learn to read and write. They attacked schools first of all, and churches. Why? Because they were too lazy to learn anything. The Klan prey upon the fears of ignorant whites to this day, and their terrorism target saturday was another school, a University. Trump condemned the people who opposed that terrorism attempt right along with the terrorists. The terrorists who backed his election. The ones he quietly denied being his base. He lied then and he’s lying now.


The nazi terrorists are whining about nobody backing down to their threats.

Blaming everybody but themselves.  Pity the racist coward klansmen? Your organization is the most pervasive terrorist group in American history. Not only did your leaders, including Robert E Lee, have 300 thousand Union AMERICAN soldiers and 200 thousand Confederate AMERICAN soldiers slaughtered outright in an effort to keep Human Beings, AMERICAN human beings, in slavery forever. Your Klan founder Bedford-Forrest had prisoners of war slaughtered because of the color of their skin,at Ft Pillow MS who were fighting for their own freedom. You aren’t smart, moral or brave enough to allow freedom and equality and at this rally you wanted to terrorize people to keep supporting your hatred and terrorism forever. The People you chose to terrorize didn’t back down to your threats so you think of yourselves as victims. Grow up, grow some testicles, learn some manners and stop trying to threaten anybody who don’t agree with you. Stop being stupid.

Supremacists get resistance and then get violent, and still lose.

The stupid bastards actually thought that nobody would dare talk back to them.  Ever noticed the biggest mouthed elitists aren’t actually elite? They were marching against a school, college actually, just like always they go against education first.


Things to do for the Supremacist parade in Virginia

take pictures of the license plates. The cops already are doing that. Maybe steal their list. Maybe steal is the wrong term as we paid for it in the first damn place. Get a subscription to a information site, like spokeo. Trace their tags. Give all the addresses to criminals,  doesn’t much matter which races, who can go to their houses and steal everything they own, especially the watch dogs. To take a watch dog, you put sleeping pill powder in a squeeze bottle of butter. Squirt it on the dog where it would be easy to lick it off. The dog has an instinct to do exactly that. Take pictures of the purloined dogs and put up posters all over their neighborhoods. Saying “I’m retarded and somebody stole my guns, computer and watch dog while I was at a big Klan Rally to prove whites are superior. Come to my house and take everything that’s left because I’m stupid”


Necrocracy

The ‘conservatives’ who conserve nothing more than their own wealth, all of it gotten at public expense, keep hammering on about the ‘expressed original intent of the so-called founding so-called fathers’ and not one of these experts in the Founding Fathers has come forward with a list of even 100 of these Extremely Important Rotting Corpses. So I’ll assume they only include George Washington, John Adams, John Q Adams (an hereditary dictator, according to the Slave Owners Faction, largely because he opposed slavery) Vice President Aaron Burr who murdered Hamilton, in a duel, and got away with it because they were both aristocrats, and of course Tommy Paine and Tommy Jefferson. As you can check for yourself, these cats were heavily weighted to Slavery as A Divine Right, and every son-of-a-bitch one of them got their property and financial gain by Government Largess, first from the Kings of England, France, Holland, Spain and Prussia, and then they took over the management of the Corporate Welfare scheme in a ‘revolution’ which benefited the Rich and impoverished the already poor. The first ‘free election’ for president was settled by 43,782 ‘popular’ votes, all of them White Aristocrats. out of a population more than 4 million according to the first census. Let’s see, 4,000,000 divided by 100… = 40,000 so the landslide vote was roughly 1.1 percent of the entire population. In a crazy sideshow, the Slaves were actually counted as votes toward the final Electoral Votes, but at 60% of each person who was not legally a person. But according to mostly Republicans And OTHER Fascist parties, we are to be governed at the whim of just under 44,000 ghosts of whom only a tiny fraction of that are actually recognized as Founders.

Got a spam email from England, ‘open enrollment in Trump Care’

Somebody is being very presumptious…


Some pigs in Bed-Stuy NY got refused service at donut shop, fascists boo-hoo about it

Yeah. Pig loving ‘conservative’ coward whores are hoping the pigs retaliate at a traffic shop so they can jack off to the video. Pigs of a feather still can’t fly. Or commit some act of honor or courage. They talk much stupid about an unarmed clerk standing his ground (or her ground) against heavily armed state-sponsored terrorists and torture fanciers, who have a reputation for murdering citizens who don’t bow down and kiss the PIGS’ jackboots.


so called conservatives willing to take credit for mosque bombing

Because they’re morons and living proof that there’s a right-wing chain of command wherein they’re told to do such atrocity. That and they’re true coward punks. If there had been any violent people worshiping at the mosque the chickenshit punk who tossed the bomb wouldn’t have gone near it. Even with a squad backing him up. That’s their level of ‘courage’.


Dueling Headlines, Racist Arpaio found guilty, ICE held citizen 3 years and refuse to compensate.

And they say they don’t have a racist agenda or that  Trump and Arpaio and all the Minutemen Scum are affiliated with the Klan, Skinheads and Nazis. Bunch of lying bitches. They lied about their agenda when they attacked me in 1986 in El Paso too. Nothing new there. Border Patrol/ICE have ALWAYS been a publicly subsized private enforcement arm of the Supremacists. ICE is counter-suing for rent on their Torture Center cell they graciously allowed the victim, and the prison slop they fed him. The El Paso CJC is one of the Concentration Camps which does the daily dirty work for their ICE masters. Our own beloved Klan minion Maketa should have been prosecuted for his racist crap many years ago. Instead the Wonderful ‘justice’ community here let him go and go and the only thing they’re prosecuting him for doing was hogging resources for his own property during a forest fire, thus letting his rich-bitch neighbors to Burn, baby, Burn.


even the politicians are acting all kinds of up…

Governor Christie of New Jersey decides to get up in the grill of another spectator at a baseball game. With his bodyguards in tow. Because the guy talked back to him. OMG. The guy he attacked just laughed at him. Apparently Christie hadn’t had his nap and probably had a load in his diaper. His responsible adults got him to back his stupid ass down. End of story? Well, no. The Right Wingnuts are trying to have him canonized and nominating him for a Cabinet seat, where he could be in the presence of his lord Trump. Where does the stupidity end?


People used to be ashamed of racism.

Until the Idiots decided that being nice to people and recognizing their common humanity was “politically correct”. Politeness and at least an attempt at being correct, those are admirable and noble goals, yes? Until the advertising divisions of many corporations, like FOX  for instance, conditioned the least educated and most simple minded Socially Retarded Animated Sphincters on the planet, Republicans, and their nasty little piglets, that it’ ok to actually hit other people. And they act shocked when, after decades of Lone Wolf Shooting Spree idiots, THEIR own spawn, somebody on the Left shot at Congressional Republicans. I’m tempted to say boo-to the hoo hoo hoo. I’m not going to call them nasty names even though the crybaby dumbshit pinhead skinhead Retardicans deserve it. Not from fear, but just because I’m smarter than them and as such I have a social duty to not lower myself to their level. Besides, lowering my IQ and social responsibility that drastically would mean I would need to use a lot of really dangerous drugs and it might become permanent. Their recipe for hate is like (but not exactly) making bread. Instead of flour, yeast, water, shortening and sugar they use rotted faeces.  They stir it up, add in some hate speech their stupid mommas taught them, then shape it with their already bloodstained and filthy bare hands, but I’m not (—WARNING!! REALLY BAD PUN ALERT!!—) going to do that. I don’t knead your shit.


north dakota terrorism incident at WalMart over parking spot.

A white lady in Fargo N Dakota got into an argument over a parking spot with three Somali-AMERICAN women. She told them “we’re gonna kill all of you” and the Trumpista Cult is on it like stink on shit. They’re calling for the death of anybody who disagrees with them as being terrorism and treason. I’m not going to pander to the right wing hate squads and their bigotry. I’m not going to buy into the MYTH surrounding the so-called founding so-called fathers like Serial Rapists Washington and Jefferson and Madison (raping the slaves is a privilege slaveholders have always cherished) being the sole arbiters of what church we must attend, and if you want a religious dictatorship in America you’ll have a Church State and its exact conjoined twin is you’ll have a State Church . Every imported religious congregation in America was kicked out of its former kingdom because they angered the king. EVERY… ONE… OF… Them. People who can’t tell the difference between Presbyterian from Lutheran from Episcopalian (and there were huge wars fought in good old White Supremacist Europe for CENTURIES over those tiny differences) do not have some God given ‘right’ to tell me what church should rule over all others. I’m certainly not going to obey your commands to Hate Human beings because of their faith or ancestry or any of your other reasons to Hate people. Trump doesn’t run my life. I’m sorry for you and will pray for you if that’s what rules YOUR life. A Parking dispute turns into a Jihadi Attack by those who are mentally conditioned to see Jihad everywhere they look. You’ve allowed other people to tell you who you’re required to hate. That’s too bad. IF the three women who were threatened with DEATH by the other woman actually WERE Jihadim the women would have killed her. Maybe. The fact that they didn’t respond to the hate speech with violence is really obvious but not for people who are conditioned to hate. Guess what? If there was no Jew or Muslim or Atheist in America you would be fighting your fellow Christians. You do ANYWAY, and if Trump or his Cult say they don’t I’ll laugh in your stupid face and dare you to do something about it. The Pilgrims and Puritans were both kicked out by the Kings James and Charles whatever their numbers Because They Did Not Conform To The Episcopalian Church, which was a punishable offense in England up till the late 1800s. It’s called Non-Conformism and that’s where we get the term

Kill your wife, blame the victim, post on yahoo. Maybe not in that order

I admit, sometimes I write comments on other websites, notably Yahoo News. Huffington Post put up a couple of articles, one saying that most homicides (women) are committed in Domestic Violence. Pure statistics. And the second is like unto the first, 56% of women killed were shot. Firearms. Death by Bullet, you know the one. Again that’s a pure statistic. On the first one, just before I posted, there were ten in a row Troll Comments to the effect that Women are evil greedy abusive and need to be killed, some advocating that the true cause of the killings were because women have equality instead of being handmaids and property of their husbands. I shit you not. Some even used scripture to justify it. Some of the screen names of the so-called ‘men’ I’ve seen before, trashing Muslims for having a set of laws which allow a husband to beat or kill his wife. Or Wives, and don’t get freaky about Muslim polygamy as we’re one state over from Utah which was founded by polygamists, and nothing in Leviticus which prohibits a man from having several wives. And Leviticus has a statute which grants parents the ‘right’ to kill their kids. So it’s hypocrisy on the hoof. The ones who advocated Divorce by Assassination told horror stories about abusive women, and sometimes a woman kills a man, and that most divorces are filed by women. Imagine that, a woman being such a bitch that she won’t stay in a relationship with a guy who considers Killing His Wife to be justified. Where do we get these chumps anyway? Is there a special ranch in West Texas where they raise them? The second is much like the first, only it was condemned, and Huffington Post along with it, as  being anti-gun propaganda. Oh, yeah, that’s unconstitutional, don’t you know, to point out that so many women killed by handguns and so many goofy-ass punks advocating shooting their wives, and using God to justify it, oh my, how Treasonous and anybody saying otherwise is TYRANNY! How much do you want to bet these assholes vote a straight Republican ticket unless there’s a more hate-filled racist cultic party puts up a candidate…like the Tea Party?


Drama Queen in Chief just declared himself Autocrat.

Meaning he’s said he can and will pardon himself and his family for the crimes he said were never committed. And here I was thinking Nixon was the craziest president in my lifetime.There’s an esoteric medical term for his condition, let me see if I can get it right … “Crazy as a shithouse rat and probably dangerous”


Police body cameras reveal Colorado Springs law enforcement used arrests to infiltrate a student socialist group.


COLORADO SPRINGS, COLORADO- Police body worn camera footage accidentally discovered to defendants in the March 26, 2017, protest cases, has revealed a mysterious side story at the Colorado Springs Socialists’ “March Against Imperialism”. At that march, six participants were cited for marching in the street. Meanwhile, a curious seventh was detained, driven off, but not cited. CSPD Officer Krueger’s body-cam recorded what happened and more.

I sincerely hope Nicaragua beats the fuck out of the U.S. Soccer team

Because so many “patriots” think that a game played by children would prove one or another political/slash/economic system to be better than any other. Like the “Miracle On Ice” hockey victory of the doped up US team over the USSR somehow proves publicly subsidized Privately Owned Capital to be better than any other. We’re “free” to worship the yankee dollar, aka Mammon, and those who have more of the yankee Mammon dollar are of course better than anybody else, even though it’s been obtained by the Anybody Else killing babies in foreign and local wars and the Elitist punks on Wall Street don’t get their pretty little hands soiled by direct labor or direct combat. That’s why a loving Mammon in his glory and mercy gave ‘us’ peasants to do it for ‘us’. Or ‘our’ corporate masters.. of course, by the same token, the USSR Basketball team must have proven that Communism was the better system. And there’s the known fact that Nicaragua was violently attacked, you know, with murder and other mayhem and destruction, by Reagan and other Fascist Scum going all the way back to when the Spanish Inquisition claimed all of America.  Oh, and about that Fall of Communism…. the Fascists are expecting all Americans except those who actually had their own Bankster pockets lined with blood money to pay the interest on the bonds the Fascists floated in the name of Everybody… for generations to come. It seems Capital can’t survive on its own merits. By the way… the US 1972 basketball team…

Could Marshal Petain have actually been Resistance?

I mean, I know he and DeGaulle had serious differences, but DeGaulle wasn’t exactly a liberal or progressive, wouldn’t fit in with hippies, you know? Fascists like Hitler, Mussolini, Quisling, their counterparts in Spain, Greece and Portugal, there were plenty of them, they don’t like each other. The proverb ‘the enemy of my enemy must be my friend” really doesn’t hold up under scrutiny. By the way, this is something that would sound neat-o if read After A Night With no Sleep. But I’ll continue. Dunkirk is in the movie theater downtown now.  But back to Petain. What if his “surrender” was a sham? For one thing, the French army etc didn’t have to  spend the war in a POW camp. or surrender their arms. So maybe it’s not so much capitulation as cold-blooded opportunism. Dude was a vicious fascist prick, like trump only smarter, and actually introduced himself as a fascist. I get a severe case of the red-ass when really stupid people talk smack about the french being serial surrender-monkeys. They ran England for 700 years approximately, And Austria, which has a rep for being really belligerent. English wasn’t the court and private language for the aristocracy until George the 4th. Prior to the French taking over their island the Saxons (Germans) for 500 approximate years ran the place. The current Queen was only a couple of reigns away from having the surname Saxe-Goetheburg, because the English king Edward the however-the-hell his number changed it in anticipation of having a war with Germany, and needed an English connection for his family so people wouldn’t lynch him. It seems the English royalty at least were the real surrender-monkeys.    And the dumbshits who keep up the insults against the French are angry because the French aren’t (usually) capitulating to ‘our’ Fascist government, and they don’t want to seem childish and petulant about it. Of course, they do anyway, they can’t overcome their reputation as crybabies.


The Fed’s Janet Yellen says economy healthy enough for usurers to start bleeding it again

That’s essentially what the Federal Reserve does, it monitors public wealth to regulate how much surplus production can be skimmed off the top. Usually all of it. But someone has to determine how much that is to prevent the banking vampires from sucking the public to death.


Irish people hitting Irish people, as usual


Maybe it will reverse anthropogenic global warming

‘it’ being the caldera that is the monstrous geo- zit that sits under Yellowstone constantly threatening to blow off a freak of a lot of steam. And other shit.There was a 5.8 earthquake right on or right next to it this morning. Oops it’s just after midnight now so YESTERDAY morning. The smug Trump followers who were rejoicing that Donald took the wolves, grizzly bears and buffalo off the protected list. They’re angry that they weren’t allowed to finish up the job started around the Civil War, when such wise and noble individuals (who murdered children) as Chivington, Custer, Palmer, Carson, Cody et al decided it would be a smart idea to get rid of the Natives by destroying the ecologic systems such as shooting all the buffalo, etc. Which led to the Dust Bowl, massive famine (another word for economic meltdown) wherein U.S. population was slanted to rural areas and STILL people were going hungry. Economy and Ecology are related terms, funny how that happens with a truly structured language like Greek. But ecology means the science of the kitchen and economy means the funding for the kitchen. Notice that it has a lot to do with food. Now, I’m slowing down on my caloric intake since I had a brush with the precursors for diabetes . But I still likes my vittles. I suppose, just a thought, maybe everybody else in the world is in favor of not starving. Oh, here’s another little problem, even if Old Faithful doesn’t participate in a full scale eruption, you know what else is up near there? Guess… Montana, Canada, The Dakotas … you know, the ones blessed with the DAPL and Keystone pipelines, a blessing we were forced at gunpoint, literally, to accept. Also Minot N.D. which has a Missile Base. When I was in the Air Farts it was the second largest stockpile of nukes, right behind Carswell AFB on the outskirts of Ft Worth. Then there are an ungodly array of chemical and biological weapons repositories. Like the one on the outskirts of Pueblo. Maybe my friends were right and the earth is consciously getting rid of us. Or committing suicide. Or both. Bottom line is we’ve been tossed into the trash by the richest, so they could have more shiny rocks to play with.
