Just like Ft Worth and Here and other Lynch ‘Law’ locales…

Sort of like here and Ft Worth.. not really.. the “sort of like” statement softens the hard truth. Our mayor here, Suthers, was the Gestapo Uberfuhrer aka Attorney General of Colorado and made damned sure the PIGS never get punished for their crimes, especially murders of “fleeing suspects” and prisoners. Coward scum killed Michael Marshall, an mentally ill inmate who was killed in November 2015 by Denver Sheriff Dept and John Walter in 2014 in Fremont County murdered by Sheriff Officers Corporal Maas and Hudspeth and Sgt Greene with the help of the Correctional Health “care” corporation and Fremont County paramedics… and the Attorney General’s office. Marvin Booker in a jail office because he came out of his cell without putting on his shower shoes. Fucking pigs, in all cases. If your loved one dies in a jail in any state but especially Colorado, you can bet a thousand percent of your ass that the Pigs Did It, Deliberately and for the purpose of pure Powertripping. And Suthers made it easy for them. There’s a pattern of the Cop Establishment paying PUBLIC MONEY, to buy off the Pig ass-holes so they never get charged of a crime. If a PIG gets killed the Sheeple canonize the PIG as though he was a saint.


Veterans Affairs budget on CSPAN right now.

They’re temporarily raising funding, but Rep Phil Roe R Tennessee is talking cutting (redirecting) Appeals. Meaning anybody who is screwed by the Privatization Dr Roe also advocates, doesn’t get an appeal.  Then there’s the Really Big Dead Elephant Stinking Up The Parlor…. Stop the Fucking Wars and the rest will fall into place. Rep. Tim Walz D Minnesota is questioning the numbers. 4 billion emergency funds and a 20 Billion shortfall. Some more repetitious advice from ME… Stop the Fucking Wars. None of the wars being fought right now, the 800 U.S. offshore Military Bases, not one penny of it is actually defending America.

Alternate title: How do I get outta this Micky Mouse Outfit…

Lost Angels Times reported on a gang problem at Disneyland. No, really. Social Clubs, hard-core Disney fanatics with annual passes, roaming around wearing biker style colors. Rumble Jackets. Like Hell’s Angels, Bandidos, Sons of Silence only… Well, you have to see it to believe it… I thought they were grinning me. Yuppies Drool!


and then there’s this…

Hackernoon  reports that there is now the global deficit (debt)  currently well over $233 Terabux (for those inexperienced with my particular one-man patois, that’s a Trillion Dollars. The U.S. budget is allegedly 1 trillion.) estimated 270 terabux. According to Bloomberg. Which has one feature I don’t. People can’t just go on the Bloomberg sites and troll. I don’t have the imagination to think up shit like this. For the further record, just in case the rabid credit consumers, investors and such, “credit”  which should be called “debit” is really overstated. And debit as in “debit card” which means money you actually have, is denigrated as undesirable. One ‘credit’ investment firm runs commercials with the tag line “don’t get mad, just invest the money you don’t have into our treasure horde” essentially saying anybody who doesn’t get on board is envious. And no, that’s not the same as Jealous. Jealous means you believe somebody is macking on your stash. Envious means you’re macking on somebody else’s stash.  I give free english lessons for those bigots and racists who say everybody has to learn english but don’t do it themselves. You’re Welcome. Anyhow, there’s another very respected Capital Thief bank claiming a trillion dollars in assets, mostly because they got their own collective ass bailed out during the last crash. The people who lost everything by investing in their scam didn’t get the bailout. Just the billionaire bigpigs, like Trump. Just one example. Scared yet? Read on… Read more »


Russian team banned, go to Seoul and get to compete anyway

I guess the Team USA feel the only way they can win is if the Russians don’t compete. Here’s my take.Awwww… ‘merican athletes don’t get the competition eliminated so they’ll have to actually earn any victory. Team USA, you can do your gig better than I do. Not that I give three quarters of a fat rat’s left testicle, it’s GAMES. If you ever do something worthwhile in life, something that actually makes a difference to the world or the U.S. … Remember summer games 1972? I do. The U.S. basketball team lost by a couple of points to the Russians in what the Team Crybaby U.S.A. say was a bad call from the referees, so they as a team refused to take the Silver medal and still do. Get over yourselves, REAL pro basketball teams have the same thing every week. They don’t spend the next 45 years whining about it. Grow Up already. I’m going to put this on the NotMyTribe blog here in Colorado Springs.

another nazi pig bites the dust

As Homer put it. El Paso County Concentration Camp guard got his head blown off. Too bad. He looks like one of the Pigs who beat me up while I was handcuffed. But since they ALL look alike, and they make their appearance as close to each other as possible, so their victims can’t  readily identify their attackers. Sure sign of Fascism. Pigs don’t like the designation, too bad. They did it to themselves. They don’t protect anybody except their billionaire Masters. When they beat somebody down, they tell you they’re better than you, but since they have to do their violent crimes in a GANG, have to hide behind an anonymous badge and clothes and their Fellow PIGS, just like the Gestapo, they prove to their victims what vicious nasty chickenshit punks they (the PIGS) truly are. Their Masters pat them on the head and congratulate them for their “Courage”. Yeah, PIGS, lick those Bankster boots. You’re just uniformed Slaves yourself. May your recently deceased buddy will greet you at the entrance of Hell.


and the stocks go down, as the floods go up…

Infrastructure on the coasts, gone. Bull Market, stampeding down the path, leaving their droppings… everywhere… for those who don’t recognize the Sunday School song, “the rains come down and the floods go up
and the house on the Rock stays put”
alternating with
“and the house on the sand falls down!”
Infrastructure on the middle, in the mountains, terminally fucked. What next? For the answers to these questions, tune in next week for the next episode of Dope.


Something to resist and how to do it…

The Air Farts and Army and really all the ‘services’ have a shortfall in the longwar plans. For a couple of years after the conquest/invasion/liberation of the Iraq and Afghan peoples, those deployed or on U.S. bases doesn’t matter, reserve or National Guard as well, who had finished their enlistment contract Only The Fucks In The White House And Pentagon and Congress invoked a clause that they can keep you in the Military for the rest of your life if the ‘mission’ needed you. So they were a) ramping up the recruiting and b)red-lining discharges. Now, many will ask, as they often do “Jonah, what the Hell are you talking about?”

“Trump calls for unity” in SOTU

Yeah. Fascist dogma is all about unity. Every dictator in the world demanded or still demands that the entire population agree with him and offer(ed) incentives like an “enemy” nation “threatening” him and his host country, and of course offers the incentive of “Or get put in jail or killed” option. Usually makes the people conform to dress and conduct codes like


Travel Channel blatant revelation of Jefferson intent to commit genocide

Don Wildman had on the notoriously jingoistic U.S. propaganda “travel channel” and “history channel” did a segment of Mysteries of the Museum show, “Bigger is Better” about Jefferson saving America’s reputation by sending a dead moose to France, to convince Europeans to illegally immigrate to the U.S. without the permission of Native Americans so the “empty” continent could be populated. Bitch, there were millions of Americans beyond the borders of the U.S. They’re called “Indians”. Don Wildman never once in his narrative mentioned that in his Propaganda Lie. He declared Jefferson’s actions as ‘heroic’. This was the SAME Jefferson, president, author of a document stating both equality of all men, and declaring that Slaves who were liberated by the British and Native Americans who kept their treaties, mutually, with the British who hired Native Tribes to fight with their army, to be mutinous and murderers. Doesn’t mention that Jefferson was screwing his slaves, no consent needed. Or the Native Tribes who fought alongside the so-called “patriots”. Nope, he had to demonize any non-white person in the entire North American continent.

RIP Ursula K LeGuin, who wrote “The Lathe of Heaven” and more…

You’d have to read Lathe of Heaven to understand my admiration. It was the first time I ever saw the term Oneirophobia, the fear of dreams. She accidentally introduced me to “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?” (Philip K Dick) because (the bane of library workers) somebody had put “sheep’ on the wrong shelf. It’s why libraries have signs everywhere reminding people not to re-shelve the books because it’s close to inevitable you’ll do it WRONG. So I got two psychedelic experience masterpieces in one short move.

Your Recruiter lied to you so you left, You’re Right!

“when anybody asks what you did to change the world, you’ll answer ‘I Became A Soldier’ ” BULLSHIT! Men have been soldiers of Emperors murdering anybody who did not bow before their Empire until the Empire went broke and some other empire took it’s place… for thousands of years and millions of dead soldiers and civilian. The Recruiters don’t for some reason emphasize the point.”When problems (with people not bowing down to the Emper__ eh, you know the rest) arise for Our Country which we have to pay to own any of it, except the ‘problems’ are caused by the Empire sending the slave-soldiers to the other countries because the citizens of those countries don’t bow down and worsh… you know the rest. You’re not going to change the world by using the same tactics and the same reasons as always. Your team has been steadily getting your collective ass shot off for 16 years against people who aren’t technically or economically advanced. Your government needs to quit doing stupid shit like that. They can’t be your leaders if you refuse to follow.

Shutdown leaves intact subsidized Death but not Life

Military and cops will be killing anybody who opposes them, here and Over There, unimpeded. The bombs from so high up the victims can’t see the planes and the planes will be over the horizon by the time the bombs hit… and the Military will say that no civilians or kids were killed, but when asked who exactly WAS killed, they’ll say they don’t actually know… So, how do you know who you Did Not murder, if you don’t know which ones you DID? Mutually Exclusive data, that. Try analyzing it on a computer. The cops and prison and jail guards will still be paid…. paid to brutally attack and often KILL people on the street and in cells, put 8 bullets in somebody’s back like the Bossier City pigs did to Marquise Hudspeth or beat somebody to death for not wearing shower shoes in the day room, like Marvin Booker or asking for actual medical care at the Cañon City “Justice Center” Jail/slash/Torture Chamber like John Walter.

Micky D and the dying gasps of decadence and materialism

They teamed up, you see.. McDonalds and Disney and other lesser demigods of Pop Culture. Mattel. Coca Cola… Teach the kids to embrace buying more than they can afford, destroy economies and ecology alike, celebrate greed, waste, … and the imminent death of the world. Destroy or subjugate other cultures to bow to the mass-produced ‘culture’ we’re told by the Masters to say is “American”. When the snubs and insults don’t do the trick, send in the Marines.

I could preach about this for days, nay… weeks

The merchant class must be spooked, they’re trotting out the St Patrick’s Day doo-dads fru-fru and trinkets. For those who know their way round a calendar, that’s more than two months away. Nuff said.


This from the range war Clive Bundy incited


Ambushed PIG had contact with the dude who shot him.

(Updated Three Times. Fascists are Stupid.) But of course. People don’t hate the PIG scum without having the hate beaten into them while handcuffed and helpless. The “good citizens’ who never had a bad experience with the Police are those who lick the Police Boots. They accept being slaves and demand that all others bow down and worship THEIR Masters. The Pigs themselves were trained to suck up to their “superiors” and so on.  A retrograde to the old poem Great fleas have smaller fleas upon their backs to bite ’em And little fleas still lesser fleas and so ad infinitum.  But those of us who have been arrested for Talking Back or even beaten for  Talking Back, for the heinous crime of Not Worshiping them as gods, and especially who have seen their fellow resistance to tyranny, fascism and state-sanctioned MURDERS , well, Murdered. Like John Walter who was arrested and held in Fremont County without a hearing or a charge, and they beat him to death because he went into withdrawals from his prescribed BY REAL DOCTORS unlike the Jailhouse Quacks, and Marvin Booker who was arrested in Denver for preaching on a street corner, was subsequently called from his cell at 3 A.M. and exited the cell without putting on shower shoes, so the deputies beat him to death. Not one single PIG, a cop or judge or prosecutor in Colorado charged the murderers of John Walter or Booker with any crime. NONE. Let one of their PIG Comrades get what was due him, and  they rally not only their fellow cops but civilians to to help themselves to a Rage and Hate Demonstration. Soldiers, Bikers, Boy Scouts, chanting their message of Universal Assimilation and Obedience. Like Mussolini or Hitler or Stalin or any Non-American dictators with their rallies. American Dictators, especially the low level dictators like the Sheriff of any county and his minions, well, they’re exempt from criticism. The REAL Man who blew the cop to HELL where he belongs, they’re described as vicious cowards. By the La Gente Buena “good citizens” who praised the PIG as a hero. Well, your ‘hero’ most likely beat the MAN who got his revenge.  While he was handcuffed and with the cop’s comrades holding him down. That’s what they do and how they do it. And all the PUKES who always support the pigs and chant the American version of “if you’ve done nothing wrong, why should you fear the KGB, Comrade?” So lie to your selves, your friends, your children, it won’t make any difference. Your Hero got what he deserved.

Rotten food

I’ve seen several dozen commercials for restaurants which advertise “decadent” food choices. AHEM!! Maybe teaching Latin was a good idea, Greek too, because  you might want to understand what your doctor tells you, especially if you have a dietary related illness. Decadent is Latin for “decayed”. Rotten. Ave Caesar.


Slumlords (like the punk who’s evicting 2 disabled elders in winter) get a tax rebate

This is from a Business section on yahoo. Slumlords get a double dip. The tenants do not. Even though the property taxes are paid by the tenants as part of our rent. Some of the Far Right Scum who infest Wall Street, the Pentagon and Congress and of course the White House are rejoicing. They have as part of their agenda Restricting Voting Rights to landowners. If you think the vote means nothing, consider the fact that the power-thieves are introducing legislation, every session of congress and every state legislature for as long as I’ve been alive, to strip tenants of their vote. These penny pinching bastards would never pay money on that scale for that long if they thought the vote wasn’t important. OK I have difficulty making the image fit, maybe it’s my own computer resolution. So I’ll type the text in the image. Title “IRS: Property Taxes deductible if assessed and paid in 2017” and the body of it is Then renters should get the same deduction, because the right wing myth that renters don’t pay (property) taxes ignores the FACT that the landowner gets the money to pay his/her property taxes from the rent. Stupid Trump and his even stupider minions are bringing that lie about renters not paying not paying taxes into electoral politics. Demanding that only property owners should be allowed to vote. Idiots, the lot of them.

Piddling while Rome Burns..

The past few days were a treasure trove of golden nougats spat from the mouth of the Emperor. And his supporters screech “Fake News” at every one. One is his hoof-in-mouth masterpiece that all Haitians have AIDS. And that was his excuse for a new round of anti-immigrant hate crimes. His followers want blood. My solution to that is to swap real estate on a acre per acre basis, with Haiti, the other side of their island as well, Puerto Rico, and some basically deserted islands off the coast of Cuba. That way they’ll have nobody darker skinned than themselves to look at and we won’t have to listen to them bitching about people who aren’t just like them. Of course they’d probably slaughter each other but, hey, no big loss, eh?


Not all Jews are Zionists, but all the people in Guatemala are under a puppet government

Trump is trumpeting that the Puppet Dictatorship of Guatemala, THE original Banana Republic as there was a lawsuit in U.S. “fair and impartial” courts as to which of two large fruit companies (american) owned Guatemala. So he told his servile subordinate to back his play in Israel. I don’t know the name of the president of the ‘sovereign’ nation of Guatemala. He might as well be named “Americas Lapdog”.


I’m calling bullshit in the so-called ‘failed christmas day attack’

It has all the hallmarks of more Pig propaganda. Like the Millennium Plot, remember that? The supposed “terrorist” supposedly was making Mercury Fulminate in Canada and bringing it back to the U.S. to use as primers for bombs. You can BUY mercury fulminate in America, ready to use caps of it, designed and manufactured and marketed as primers.Any gun shop that sells Reloading Supplies. The Government lied to us THEN, and I  believe they’re doing it NOW. Cops at every level are exactly like that. There’s not a cop in the world who wouldn’t file false charges if it fits their agenda.


Open Letter To Mayor Suthers and other pond scum elitists

I emailed this to him as well.

You’re a lying Nazi Bitch just like every rich-bitch claimant who decides (s)he is a “civic leader”. You and your arrogant elitist associates (none of you have actual friends, just as you have no conscience)don’t do anything to relieve the burdens your wealthy country club put on the “lower” class and you sic your cowardly slave-police on us whenever we disagree with your high and mighty decisions.

Right wing Shitwads rejoicing over lynching of ISIS Prisoners of War

The Puppet Dictatorship in Iraq are “giving them fair trials” lasting an average of 20 minutes each and then hanging them immediately. The Alt-Lite Keyboard Warriors are giving each other hand jobs in celebration, just like they do whenever a Cop puts a bullet in a Black back and then says the murdered person was threatening him. In fact, I bet the Cops are rejoicing that the Army is testing out wholesale lynching and since it already happens here, maybe they want to expand it. I bet every cop or Back The Badge aka Blast The Black enthusiasts are getting out their ropes. Every Cop and every Judge in Colorado Springs is a proud accomplice in that.


So ‘they’ think there is proof that King Arthur ruled in Scotland…

Like, whip-di-diddly doo… I mean, fake news on the hoof. What difference does one long-dead despotic asshole being from one end of the Island of Great Britain or another or if he’s simply a fictional character who is somehow a Celtic Messiah? He’s still dead, his kingdom collapsed while he was (supposedly) still alive and the most charitable bio of him held that he was a a bastard in the classic meaning, banged his sister Morgana and got all pissy because his best friend banged his old lady. And the earliest mention of him in history was by a monk named Geoffery of Monmouth who wrote it down 600 years after the story took place. Then there’s that Messianic twist. Born to be king, seriously? Come the hell on. That type of thinking has plagued mankind at least as long as there were people who could write about what happened. There might have been ‘good’ kings somewhere in history but there are a lot of The Other Kind and that is the actual norm. It’s living (alleged) proof that the whole nasty business should have been scrapped in the time of Nimrod. Uther Pendragon is alleged to be a refugee from a civil war in what’s now Syria and Turkey. He was like mint jelly and a sprig of parsley (On The Lamb) and no, I’m not taking it seriously. The best the narrative has done is to demonstrate that English Civilization is an oxymoron. The people who believe it, take it seriously and otherwise make a huge collective pest of themselves. They put in the bit about Mary Magdalene and the son of Jesus winding up in Glastonbury or Southern France or whatever local Hereditary Dictatorship. Sounds like the Founding Fathers bullshit we get oh so much of it thrown our way if we disagree with certain rat bastards right here at home. They know who they are…
