Affordable Care Act stands

Trump loses. America wins. I’ll fill this out a little, the Supremes apparently have signed off on the DAPL being poised to poison the waters, Corps of Engineers pursuing the Keystone pipeline, and all this after a massive oil spill in North Dakota. Which was today announced that it was 3 times bigger than first reported. Hmmmm…. I wonder if North and South Dakota cops will whine and snivel about having to pay for cleaning up THAT mess. They keep saying they won. But it’s not over and we’ve got a long job ahead to fight them back into their cages. It’s warming up a bit, and it’s not just due to the known fact of anthropogenic global warming. It’s getting politically hot.


Ex Soldier murders older black ex soldier because he was black

And you’re god-damned right I’m going to say that Trump has more blood on his hands. He gave the Fascist white supremacists a green light to murder dark skinned people. What else could he expect from the Aryans? They’re not the best and the brightest, he knows it, and never stopped pandering to them. Make America Stupid Again. They’re living proof that white people are supreme. I don’t go around saying I’m better than them… but I do say they aren’t better than me. They need to drop that superiority bullshit and, klansmen, y’all can just line up and take turns helping yourselves to a Texas-sized all-you-can-eat-buffet of Kiss My Liberal Ass.


TSA detained former Deputy Chief of Police, where was Blue Lives Matters?

Oh, yeah, the guy has a “funny” name and his dad was born in Somalia. But they’re not actually profiling Negroes nor Mulattos nor people who “look Mex” or Arab or Iranian or any other hated species of Human Beings. The lies continuously flow. The TSA held him in an interrogation chamber, signs saying “Remain Seated”, locked doors… but they weren’t “detaining” him.  He, being a COP, knew damned well that it was detainment.  And knew the rules for detaining people.  I’m going to break out the story of how I know a young woman who held another woman’s arm to keep her from leaving, and served 5 years for kidnapping, in Texas. But the cops have nothing to fear on that. They never get charged no matter how far in the wrong they go.  For all I know the victim, Former Greenville Police Chief Hassan Aden, could easily be a complete dick. I’m bigoted in a way, I dislike uniform clothes, haircuts and attitudes. They take away part of the soul. Cops are never drafted into the police. Purely voluntary. But here, the TSA detained for 90 minutes AFTER they knew he was a Cop. So here’s the story. By the way, he was Second-to-Top Cop in Alexandria VA and top in Greenville North Carolina. A black version of Andy Taylor of Mayberry fame.                                                                                                                                      Former Greenville Police Chief Hassan Aden said he was detained at Kennedy Airport when he returned from a recent trip to Paris.

Intellitech College still recruiting students for really crappy jobs

It’s how we know the economy doesn’t actually exist in any meaningful form. I might have written much the same thing 9 years ago when the Banks took us into a Great Recession or Massive Market Adjustment by buying debt, bundling it, and selling the uncollectible debt as though it was cash. But Intellitech makes the commercial claim that you, too, might enter the exciting and great pay and all that shit about HVAC technicians. “Work in schools, industries, businesses, all of which have non-working air conditioning in the heat of summer and you’ll be melting into the tar up on the roof and/or working on the inside part which is so hot it makes Hell feel like Antarctica in the middle of winter.”  Like the Army recruiters. “come and die protecting the wealth of complete assholes who have individual bank accounts which outstrip the economies of the Third World countries you’ll be murdering the citizens thereof”.

Trump declares war on the Baldwins, like South Park movie?

Out of all the pure Crap the Drama Queen in Chief has on its plate, you know, dismantling health care, making sure no Plutocrat Captains of Industry have to bear the struggle of the EPA demanding they at least bury their toxic waste, taking personal ownership of Indian Lands or just the resources on those lands, canceling Meals on Wheels (sorry, grandma, you don’t get any food because Trump needs more guns and bullets to make him believe he’s a macho badass), putting out an open season-kill on sight license to assassinate anybody who has brown skin like in Olathe, you know, important shit like that… but that’s not his biggest problem. No sir, the hated infidel Alec Baldwin is mocking his Royal Pain In The Assness, and must be stopped! Waaahhh…. This would be funny if it wasn’t actually real. The president of about 30 percent of the people (and dropping) is actually contemplating punishing an actor for making fun of his hysterics.


Double Standard Oil

So some political hacks in the U.S. Government have sounded the alarm that Russian investors have gained the largest block of shares in Citgo oil. So, why the whining? These are the same outfit who demanded for generations that Russians become capitalist. There’s also the notion that has been promoted by many generations of United States based oil-heads that every drop of oil In The Entire World belongs to them. And there’s the notion that

Mother Earth in revolt? Etna erupting.

That would be an elegant method of countering anthropogenic global warming. A little bit of geo-genic global cooling.  Hey, quantum computing has a provision that all events play off against every other events simultaneously throughout the universe. The center of each unit of space, time, mass and energy is centered on every other center including the center of the universe itself. How does that work, you ask? Hell, I don’t know, just that the phenomenon is repeating itself. Since time is part of it, each iteration is simultaneous with it’s previous and latter iterations. People in India have been assured of this since the earliest of their writings. And they invented the Zero and the decimal notation 0 to 9 while the Roman Empire was pending. It’s something the Inquisition was particularly harsh in judging.     Given the theory and its many tentacles tendrils neural computations however we’ll wind up discussing it, maybe the global warming and die-offs of worms, bees, frogs, probably some protozoans and amoeba might be triggering a reaction from the middle of the earth. Of course we won’t be comfortable with how it works. Won’t have any bloody control of it anyway.


Dakotas owe their Mercenary Nat’l Guard and other Pigs $38 million

They want the federal government to pay for it. But, hey, they VOLUNTARY assaulted the Water Protectors, VOLUNTARILY tear gassed, beat with clubs, arrested on bogus charges, blew off a woman’s arm playing with their grenades, it was the decision of North and South Dakota to do all that, strictly for the profit of the richest bitches in America, including Donald Trump who CLAIMS to have divested from DAPL. Even pretending that he had, is an admission that it would be a conflict of interest to use executive power to put money in his own bank.

ICE and TSA racist scum still jacking with Muhammad Ali Jr

Same thing, yank him out of line, take him to an interrogation room, with armed guards and locked doors. That’s imprisonment, right? I know a woman in Texas who held the arm of another person to keep that person from leaving, and it was called Aggravated Assault and Aggravated Kidnapping. And spent 5 years in prison.    But hey, the pigs are endowed with privileges to do it to anybody they god-damn please, and beat or even kill the person if he or she even talks back. The TSA racists did as all racists do, said it wasn’t about unlawful punishment for what’s supposedly freedom of speech and religion. Or racial profiling. Oh, no, the PIGS are too squeaky clean to do anything like that, they’re just protecting his rights. I bet the Back the Badge and Blue Lives Matter Klan-associated Fascists who occasionally read this are screaming at their computer screens because somebody suggested that they’re not Pure and Righteous Angels sent from God Himself.

Here’s a neat Idea

OK it’s not neat. More like messy and sloppy. But it’s simple, really, in the new age of non-privacy. Read more »


This is a WTF? Moment

A kid dies of starvation, in America, I don’t know the details, just that the Local Responsible Journalists in that state really dropped the ball. Who, really, makes a comment on the underwear of the deceased Person, in the world-wide available headline? Here’s a picture of the headline. Only a part of it though. I did that bit.


Repoopycans feel TrumpDon’tCare is dead in the water

Imagine that. Cut money out of actually getting the poorest a little help with health care, something which would conceivably get people up and ready to work again, maybe in the Killing Machine ‘defense’ industry or maybe poisoning everybody else’s well with fracking and pipelines and steel mills and reopened coal mines. So ‘we’ can threaten every other political entity in the world, like North Korea. If President Kim was a measurable fraction of the crazy Washington says, he would have attacked South Korea a long time ago because they have missiles aimed at the North. Missiles, planes, artillery, oh yeah. And all in the service of South Korea’s puppet masters in Washington, many of whom keep screaming into any available microphone that they want to destroy North Korea. Nixon for instance. Well, he wasn’t as crazy as Reagan or Bush the Either or well, you know… the loofah-faced shit-gibbon. Nixon gave the orders for the Environmental Protection Administration. The Repoopycans never seem to mention that when they’re railing madly about how some fish in the Grand Canyon are blocking their godless-given right to dump their poison everywhere. And blame it all on Liberals. I can’t believe anything that starts with Nixon being “liberal”.    Meanwhile, even with the affordable care act, the limits put on it, (so the Empire can seize other peoples lands and assets, and if they refuse they get to kill a whole lot of people including American soldiers to convince the Other Countries to pay tribute to the Empire) are so extreme that it hasn’t met the goals of adequate health care and a lot of unnecessary pain continues.

Trump says he was ‘seeing things’

Ok, just all of these are about stuff that’s just wrong. The first is about the Drama Queen in Chief having a little bit of trouble with hallucinations. Maybe it’s the Ghost of The Obama Administration slipping him 20 mikes of acid in his energy drinks every day. People at the White House, DON’T LEAVE UNATTENDED FIREARMS AROUND HIM! He’ll be shooting imaginary leprechauns and pixies while screaming “always after me lucky charms! They’re tragically malicious” (shout out to St Paddy’s day which is tomorrow)

Houston voters told to ‘shut up’, Barton told “bitch, you work for us!”

Civil Rights and protection of all human rights aren’t a state issue and nobody in Texas god-damn better ever question the Republican Supremacy or they’ll be told to shut up. But the people said otherwise. The question involved Barton voting against protection of women from violence. It seems almost beyond reproach, in the vast majority of cases, men are larger than women. Given that most people don’t take martial arts (if you wish to dispute it, I would suggest cruising the lists of the Tae Kwon Do associations in Korea. See the proportion of American men vs American Women studying it. And while you’re looking, check on Michael “Savage” Weiner who claims to have a black belt in TKD.) When neither party is a student of self defense, the smaller person loses. I mean, I was 7th Kyub, which sounds impressive if you don’t speak Korean. You go from a white belt, no rank because you’re just starting, to being a yellow belt which is 8th Kyub, then 7th, then 6th, 1st is a red belt with one black stripe, then you get 1st Dan and the next step up is a black belt. But, yeah, a large man hitting a woman or a child is the usual setting for the crime. But Texas for some reason wants to keep up the macho bullshit. The bill would make it an aggravating circumstance for a man hitting a woman. Really, it’s rare for it to be a woman assaulting the big guys. There was a kid in my class, a 6 or 7 year old girl name Meztli. Meztli was almost to a red belt. She could have beaten me down and made it look easy. That’s training.  But hitting people is stupid anyway. That’s another thing you learn in TKD. It’s like that Cheech and Chong routine about “boot to the head”. This could be conceivably be a free advertisement for martial arts. But Barton,… well…

Preet Bharara fired for investigating Above The Law Trump

Not that I like prosecutors. They can all go to Hell with grenades up their butts, and probably will. They’ll prosecute the living dogshit out of poor people, but let a Rich Bitch commit all the crimes he wants. Under the “broken windows” doctrine the New York courts, and that’s state not just City and county… prosecuted to the maximum any misdemeanor alleged against poor people. They were, literally, prosecuting them for begging, stealing bread and sleeping under bridges. I can do my own version of Chanting and just call it Positive affirmations. The pigs and their fellow Wall Street owned minions, like the Army, Boy Scouts, schoolchildren, singers at the start and/or halftime of privatized “public” athletic events, they all chant. Just like a cult. They can do it, they insist that everybody else recite their bullshit, in unison, standing in a uniform stance, saluting with their hands on heart or on top of right eye. Look alike, speak alike, act alike, conform or else…. And any prosecutor in the nation will punish you or at least try to do it if you don’t stand up for the national anthem or say the pledge of allegiance. In New York there’s been incidents where the PIGS arrested, and beat while handcuffed people who didn’t worship the idols their Corporate Overlords demand we worship. The charge would be “disorderly conduct” and under the Broken Windows doctrine, that would be a year rotting in jail with the PIGS beating the fuck out of them. Our illustrious Prosecutor Dan May did the same thing.  So do the CSPD and the El Paso Co. Sheriffs department. It’s that way here, it’s a nationwide Fascist standard. But Donald Trump, who incites people to kill people he personally doesn’t like. Sometimes they carry out his hate-crime orders. He robs foreign people of millions of dollars, like the time he ripped off Gadafi, on real estate and rental deals.  He’s boasted about it in the past few months. And when the New Yorks approved the anti-peasant Broken Windows doctrine, he applauded it. But when the prosecutors start investing HIS crimes, he has them fired.

Hello…. Exxon loses lawsuit (in banker court) asking 1.4 billion from Venezuela

Like the massive oil company slapdown almost a century ago, in the 20s and 30s, in Mexico. They, like Exxon in Venezuela, went so far as attempted coups and sometimes completed assassinations, backed by U.S. Banks and Goverment entities, like the army, (no real difference in their chain of command, if you’re a soldier or sailor or airman or marine, you’re just a minion to them) in support of bringing back the Porfirio-Diaz corrupt Fascist Regime. At the time of the Mexican revolution led by Doroteo “Pancho Villa”Aranga, in the north and Emiliano Zapata in the south, Spain, Germany, Austria, Italy, Portugal and the U.S. had Fascist governments. You can replace the term “Banker Thieves” for “Fascist”, the terms are equivalent. There were many more. Most of the Balkans states, for instance.

St Paddy’s Day Massacre, deja vu all over again

Yeah. It’s approaching the tenth anniversary of the time the IRA took our money, gave us our permit, let us go to the second intersection and had the CSPD Goon Squad attack us, supposedly because we had banners protesting the Iraq invasion, occupation and subjugation. Oh, and the IRA also refused to support Mr Bush’s mass infanticide. A lot of people refused, world wide, but the Official Story was the Whole Damned World rose up to end the “tyranny” of Saddam Hussein. Which was of course a Heinous Lie and by now it’s enshrined into History Books where our next generation are told about the Heroism of George Bush and his Really Stupid Minions. So, on this anniversaire decimelle, Boston’s contingent of the IRA are preventing a group of War Veterans from marching, but just like the Fake Irish sponsors who turned the PIGS on us, they’re not doing it on the basis of opposition to a war the IRA opposed.
They’re doing it because the veterans are gay. To which I say, who really cares other than a bunch of closet cases who try to hide their own fears of being gay, by bashing others? But they’ll comfort themselves by lying to themselves and anybody stupid enough to listen. Oh, and by the way, about the History Books… The Project for the New American Century boasted in the mid 90s they would start a war of conquest where they would secure the oil fields in the Near East and Asia, especially Iran, and militarily and economically encircle China, India, Africa and Russia, and force the people of those countries to accept the Enlightened Rule of America, AND they projected that the occupation would last for 60 years, when anybody who remembered anything about Constitutional Law would be a small minority. The kids born after 9-11 are almost old enough to enlist in the Mightiest Army In History! Hooray!!
and the PNAC have been lying to them their entire lives.

The Drama-Queen-in-Chief, is he the commander-in-debt, bankrupt?

I published this elsewhere, on antiwar.com and Space 4 peace.Here’s some more… what if Trump is himself bankrupt… if his financial sector freinemies (that’s a corruption of friends and enemies
in case anybody is curious … but his professed hate of Wall Streetand the bankers, what if they have doubts of his ability to pay his loans… what if that’s the reason he’s scrounging big money projects
with a 100 day time limit… What if he’s overstretched… what if such a revelation of that would cause a bear market, and suddenly… what if they use their vast resources of a) a whole lot of pissed off ex-employees and suddenly jobless regulatory official and b) Beaucoup money to buy such agents to actually tap his phone calls… just, you know, protecting their hard earn.. uhmm, hard stolen money.
That kind of information would be quite well received to people who might lose billions apiece in a bear market. It would also explain the Congress –both houses –which are really a bunch of very rich elitists themselves, and are literally his co-signerson the debt which comes due in 50 days or so…
They, like Trump, have aloudly proclaimed disdain for bankers but they give the bankers a
butt-load of bread on a regular basis… What if they realize they won’t ever again get a huge windfall like the Real Estate Bailout….

Other than people shouting at each other, this is news

There’s a lady who gathered or rather “gatored” a following on twitter by dressing up a “pet” alligator in feminine attire. Ahem. You might remember Don Johnson of the TV show Miami Heat.
He did state, not on the tv show of course, that there is no such thing as a “tame” or “trained” alligator, that the most you could train them to do is try to take off your hand when you feed them, and that they don’t make good pets. Or any kind of pets for that matter. But as I said in the title, this is news. There was the Day Without A Woman rally downtown today, at the front porch of Shitty Hall. It’s a neat concept. I of course, gentleman that I truly am, didn’t mention the water sports issue that Mr Trump has, and was conveniently taken out of the MSM news soon after, even though it’s really the most entertaining of all his lovably wacked out antics. The only question I have and I might have gotten it from Samantha Bee, but there’s a huge question involved. The reports said “Donald Trump apparently has paid prostitutes to pee on him” and to my questing mind comes this retort to the report “WHAT? That can’t be real… Donald actually PAYING somebody for anything?” And there’s another wrongful use of the term “livid”. This time it’s supposedly Obama being “livid” over charges he tapped Donald. Fuck that. First, nobody has to dig for Donald’s secrets, because he can’t help but blurt out every thing he thinks he knows.

CIA Hacked, stars in the latest edition of wikileaks

Ha Ha. The CIA hires people of questionable morality, based on their ability and willingness to harm other people. Good to see some triple or quadruple agent did them a little bit of dirt. Maybe the Paranoid Drama Queen in Chief is right and somebody is intercepting his babbling on the phone. Caesar should mind his own household most of all.


The Rat bastard thieves think they’ve won

But they said that 15 years ago on an aircraft carrier off the coast of California. Their mentors said the same thing several hundred times in VietNam. Oh, yeah, I’m talking about Standing Rock, right? How could I forget this. The White Supremacist Government has been trying to wipe us out for 525 years.


Courting the Supremes.

They seem a little bit peeved with the Trump agenda, especially the part about putting the SCOTUS under the Executive Command. Maybe Il Douche didn’t take civics or at least not seriously when he was in the “elite” academy in which he spent his boyhood wishing he was somewhere else. Something about separation of powers between legislative/executive/judicial and the powers held by the states territories and Indian Reservations. A little bit of quality education would have been just what he needed. Anyhow, they delayed judgment on Standing Rock, means they sent a note saying they’re not going to just rubber stamp his every whim. Also they’re probably afraid that some of the people they fucked over in the past might know how to find their poorly guarded castles, and would hang them in their own trees by their own intestines, watched by their families and while they’re still alive.

So far… Prez taking a hit

My suggestion would be for him to “take a hit” by rolling or buying a Marley, ignite, place unlit end to mouth, inhale, repeat as necessary. Dude needs to chill. On the other hand, his New Executive Order is out concerning travel restrictions. Dialed it way back. Still stupid, but not as haughty and imperialist as the first. This time it’s down to No Visa applications from 6 nations. Existing visas to be honored. In other news, the Trump-Perry Spite fence aka el muro. The wall. Where it’s proposed, but not funded, to be built. Well within the state of Texas, some as much as 100 miles or 160 km from the river. Because of the topography of the Rio Bravo/Grande. It would not be feasible to put a wall, a fence, a house, in fact anything other than a boat, in a riparian system. Maybe a levee. A huge portion of the irrigation water in south texas is from Amistad Lake. A reservoir. A great big one. on the confluence of Rio Diablo, Rio Grande and where a previous lake, Lake Walk, which is engulfed by Amistad. Amistad means friendship in Spanish. They were building the lake when we left out of Del Rio/Laughlin AFB in 1968. The canyons in the
Bandolero movie, under water now. That low level of current most of the year carved out the canyons. It would be stupid to put structures in that. So, people in Del Rio, Laredo, Brownsville, McAllen, etc… will be on the wrong side of the wall.

Why the primal fear of sight and smell of human dead

This I sniped from several psychology and related disciplines articles years ago. And yes I’m going to hit it up with a bit of politics. The first time you smell a deceased human, you’ll know, instinctively know. It’s not like dead other mammals. Well, it is to a point. or if you see a corpse including skeletal remains. In the olden time, when humanity was more thinly dispersed, if you encountered a human body, your first instinct was to look around. Sharpens all your senses. Why? Because somebody or something killed this member of your own species. Something or somebody which or who might still be hanging around, and maybe it’s hungry, you don’t know, just that this is a hostile action. And humans are definitely a herd or pack animal. So much that we have a primal language all of our babies start experimentation when they’re like 9 months old. mama, papa pupu pipi wawa. The phenomenon is called onomotopaeia and it means “something that sounds exactly like what it describes”. I had a French teacher in High School who said she thought the word “murmuring” was about the most elegant word in any language. Anyway, if the deceased was not of your family band, that’s double. Strangers are rare in nomadic culture. By the time you can walk you’ve probably met everybody in a two hundred mile diameter. Probably a case of many cousins too… and who travels alone in tribal lands where he’s a stranger? Where are the rest of his band? These questions hit you all at one whiff. So how does Jonah make this political? All the times the U.S. Military have announced “final victory”.
They never had an absolute victory so maybe they can explain (if they move to another state, instead of the State of Denial) that ludicrous thought. Especially in our times. The VietNam non-war was called the Prime Time War because you would see people getting blown to heaven or hell on the TV news.
So, who else was watching? Humans are more hardwired to not surrender, especially to a carnivore. If they’ve seen their family member(s) slaughtered by a lion they’re not bloody likely to go up to that lion and sue for peace. Standing Rock, for instance.

A brief conversation at King Soopers back in November

Some kid (early twenties, maybe 30) saith unto me “What a day! We’ve got a president who isn’t a politician and legalized pot!” He seemed to be under the affluence of incohol but that doesn’t mean much. The important bit is that he had drank the koolaid. Giggled a little when I said Trump was going to sell him out on both counts. Now that Trump is ordering ummm.. Suggesting to his Cult that they assault and even kill immigrants, Muslims whether immigrant or not, Black Americans, the whole gamut.
And his Attorney General, “former” Klan booster Sessions, vows to use all the (Militarized) resources of the Police State to destroy the legalized pot. Mind, he shrieks “States Rights! STATES RIGHTS! GOD DAMN IT STATE RIGHTS!” when it comes to defiance of Voting Rights, or increases in the minimum wage, or even the existence of the minimum wage, abolishing public education (because Il Douche needs a base of people who are ignorant enough to believe his bullshit) and as Bush Jr said, “the bridge between religion-based hate crimes and State sponsored hate crimes” OK I paraphrased that last. And of course legalized marijuana. Doesn’t say boo (that’s a pun, kids, boo is an early nickname for marijuana) about moonshine. Of course that’s natural for a professional politician who tries to ride two horses at one time. In his career as a backwoods statesman, (that’s a southern expression roughly meaning “lying son of Satan”) he did a bit of herding cats. A huge portion of the Red States have some form of prohibition. Not of Slavery as in being owned by a corporate entity as in working on other peoples farms for free. But when and where and how much one could drink of Alcohol, with of course tobacco. So you get to be a slave of some really big corporations. Like Pete Coors who keeps running for office as “a common sense businessman” which is the tag-line for Trump. Coors is the biggest drug dealer in the world. And a good friend of Trump and Sessions.
