Undeniable Scientific Proof…

…that it’s possible to be both a pussy and a dick at the same time.

Just like George W

Ft Collins PIG slams young woman on her face while laughing maniacally.

Cops and Back The Badge Morons across America are celebrating their ‘victory’ just like their nazi gestapo mommas taught them, by mutual masturbation. They become sexually aroused by exercising power and the more helpless the victim the more they enjoy it. Coward scum, the whole lot of them.


Mitch McConnell wants Romney to run for Congress

Oh goody. Another draft-dodging war profiteer to slap around. “Gee, I wish i was with you boys, getting my ass shot off in the rice paddies, jungles and the mean streets of Saigon but I had this little old LDS missions duty and couldn’t be drafted, and I’m going to assume y’all are really stupid enough to not notice that a Draft Exemption isn’t a barrier to enlistment”. Oh, Come The Hell On…My brother in law is LDS and did his missions on base. And went to VietNam. And how many of those names on the wall, you know the Wall, right? The Wall you pretend to honor every Veterans Day or Memorial Day? That Wall…  How many of the guys behind the names are also listed in their religious preferences on their dogtags as “LDS”? You know, it’s not that difficult to check. I don’t belittle draft resisters because they put their freedom and their lives on the line, they had courage. They don’t get up on a podium at least twice a year and tell actual Veterans that stupid whimpering lie about wanting to be like them. Point being, start to making with the honesty, ok? Unlike Hillary or Al Gore you actually did take a landslide ass-whuppin’ in the polls.


So I was reminiscing about the Bus Pamphlets

the ones with arabic songs and poetry left on city bus seats and bus stops, I believe in Atlanta. Got to remember a few things written down ten years ago, ah, the bad old days. But the new/old lynch mob mentality in America smolders for a while, catches a breeze or the comments of a really racist pig of a president to blow the flames into life again… How many Shoney’s Incidents or murders of dark skinned people because they “look like Iranians” (Olathe) or are black (New York City) or were dark of complexion and in a city aroused with hatred and get a Kangaroo Court trial, get exonerated and still have a jackass puke like Trump advocating you should be lynched anyway, (New York again) and all the other Hate crimes in between are committed or incited before the actions get called Hate Crimes like they really are? How many times can the Hate Speech presidency turn its head and pretend it just can not see, see that the flames are being fanned by people in extremely high office, like for instance the White House, that these actions are deliberately being incited for the political gain of Trump and his unholy disciples?

Other than Bannon being sacked and Donald Dumb’s son in law going to Iraq

There’s an Air Force Academy commercial… of course there is. And true to their evil nature, the recruiters are promising something that is not real. The young lady in the recruiter’s lie fest says “sure I could become a pilot, or a shitload of other crap options” one of which is “Rhodes Scholar” which is a fat pathetic lie. See, if you’re a cadet at any academy it’s ROTC. Reserve Officers Training Corps. At the college level, you’re a member of the Armed Forces. Enlisted into the military. Very simple. It means you took the Oath to uphold and defend the constitution of (but not the nation itself) the United Fascist Police State. And to obey orders. That one is basic as well.You do what you’re told to do and be what They Tell You To Be. The “Rhodes Scholar” trip is off your plate until your enlistment is up. It’s a scholarship that you cash in at Oxford University in England.  Just another trick Recruiters pull. See, the Recruiters are paid a bonus for every idealistic Teenager who they get to sign his/her life away. There were so many ‘patriotic’ enlistments after 9-11, they felt they were going to avenge the nation on its enemies. Except they were told they have no choice in why they do anything other than Thou Shalt Follow Every Order. No sentimentalism past that part where you put your right paw up in the air and swear to Follow Orders. If, for instance, the 9-11 attack was really the actions of al Qa’eda then going to Iraq would not be in any way vengeance against al Qa’eda. Saddam had a fatwah against him by bin Laden. Likewise for a lot of the people in Afghanistan never saw an airplane until a bunch of U.S. warplanes started dropping bombs on them. Especially if you believe the Taliban had absolute censorship over the entire country.

CMA again.

I used to listen to Country Music almost exclusively. But how many ways can you sing about your cousin marrying your brother instead of you? I lost all respect for the CMAs when Billy Ray Cyrus got one for Achey breaky heart. That was before he sold his kid to Disney, where childhood goes to die. That of course really sealed my standard response to the whole scene..


critical analysis 101

See if you can spot the first logical break in the Enquirer tabloid  headline… “US ON HIGH ALERT! Trump’s Family In Danger! Terrorists Stole Laptop With The Plans For All His Homes!” … Let us analyze it backward. You can have a lot of houses but really one home. All of them, on one laptop? Which Terrorists, and how do you know the laptop was actually stolen? If Terrorists were that close and had that much access to his property, why mess around stealing a laptop? A REAL terrorist would have just taken his shot at Trump immediately. Why wouldn’t he just stay at the damn White House which despite having the same basic layout since it was rebuilt in 1813, people haven’t ripped their way in and just “off” the punks in the house? If the U.S. was on high alert, somebody else must have reported it. Surely a respected Fake News Outlet like the enquirer would electrify the news cycle with a revelation like that, right? But here’s the first logical break… The Enquirer published the story. Simple, yes?


Drudge says Congress is ‘sabotaging’ Trump

Because every good fascist knows that we all must bow down and worship him and help him build a New All-White America and for all of us peasants never to question his Royal Orders. And this is the Congress Trump and Matt Drudge thought was intimidated and docile and would be able to do nothing to resist il Douche.  3 Million More People voted for Hillary, and there’s another 8  million who didn’t vote for either. He Does Not Have A Mandate Nor A Landslide.


headlines –Trump being sued for inciting attacks at rally, judge did not dismiss it.

That would be ALL his statements. The dude incites his minions to be rabid fanatics who attack other Americans for simply not supporting the Thief in Command. Also blanket condemnation of all foreign nationals, immigrants, Blacks, Indians, “mexicans” and by that I mean people who have lived in the occupied territories of Texas, Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, Utah, Nevada… for thousands of years. Geronimo leaps to mind, he was born a citizen of Mexico, given a Spanish name (Geronimo is the spanish way to say Saint Jerome.) Just a point of reference, the descendants of Mexican citizens who were living in the approximately 1/3 of Mexico that was surrendered as restitution for a war started by the U.S. And Gays, and Muslims, and anybody else he feels are marginalized enough to be “easy targets”.So he’s being sued. If for instance somebody like ME went around inciting riots it would be a quick conviction and a long prison term.Wealth hath its privilege.


Piss off the warmongers a little…

This will make some Marines very angry. Tough. Their new recruitment add says ‘protecting freedom by battles won’. Does that mean their first overseas engagement at Tripoli where they a)didn’t overturn the government of the Barbary Coast b)took casualties c) they used Berber and Dervish mercenary troops who did most the fighting… sounds like a loss to me… then there was VietNam, that was a major defeat, but supposedly Americans are still free and that’s counter to the theme ‘killing mostly civilians in foreign countries keeps America free…’      And the stated reason for using WMDs on Japanese civilians, specifically Hiroshima and Nagasaki, was the Japanese had inflicted horrifying casualties on the Marines the entire time they engaged. Essentially they were badass enough to maul the living dogshit in each and all of the island hopping campaign. Yeah, that’s real victory.  Given the pattern of wars not fully won, meaning “all of the wars” we’ll have endless war which will last , well, forever… with no clear victory in any of them, but supposedly we’re only free from their SUCCESSFUL victory. Since none of the military actions have actually finished anything, they must be waiting for those hoped for but never attained victories to pay out, at least ONCE, before they graciously allow us to have that freedom…

yahoo news might delete this from their site

It’s about a FUX News commentary about the so called ‘Freedom’ Caucus whose only difference from the Trump Doctrine is they believe his medical care slashing agende is ‘not enough’. doesn’t take away even more REAL right to life in order to finance more wars.     The Chickenpoop in Chief threatening to ‘fight’? People in his economic class, and the ‘class’ of the Mostly White All Rich Congress don’t have any real grasp of the term “fight”. People from the 99% or for that matter the 85% (check it out, Wall Street Journal boasted of that stat when Reagan was the Thief in Command) the ones whose cumulative wealth is less than the top 5%… we’re the ones who will be called upon to do the actual violence, the actual baby-killing. Maybe the Skull and Bones Wall Street non-elite elitists have freshly killed kids flown in from the slaughter zones to be served as appetizers at their Jackal’s Feasts. They might as well.

Trump and his posse plan to raise funds by selling “federal assets”

But Trump and Perry in particular have a notion that Indian lands belong to the Federal Government. Just what do they believe will happen when the Tribes respond with violence instead of peace? Maybe I should write that a little more clearly. We got the federal okey-dokey long ago, along with dual citizenship, to keep firearms. And on the Rez it’s up to the tribal government what one may or not possess or carry around, at least within the confines of the Rez. A lot of it is for defense against really large, hungry wildlife who have a history of eating people. But some, you know, is for invasive species like pigs. There was a little dust up several decades ago, you might have heard of it, at a place called Wounded Knee. The Lakota in the 70s had to give the Army the full-metal jacket version of the upraised middle finger. While Natives don’t make up the majority of veterans, Veterans are a very large proportion of the people.  Uncle Stupid gave a lot of guys a short vacation from the Rez, the inner cities and podunk redneck towns. They called it the draft, and as of now it’s the economic draft. You don’t quite know how big a mistake to join until you’re already joined. Just a little ol’ thang, don’cha know. The experience is kind of a pissoff when it comes down to it, and they chase down and imprison you for leaving early. Unless you’re rich like George Bush. But he’s not in this equation.

What a huge crock of shit… Baby Killers beware, you’re being outed

There’s a ‘science’ channel show, a celebration of the ‘success’ of the Earth-Killers, “Modern Marvels” starring the Cowboys stadium in Arlington Texas.  They started out with “in 2009 the Dallas Cowboys decided it was time for a new home”. Bullshit like this you only get in Texas. Grade AAA Premium. The REAL STORY is the Cowboys got their expensive collective ass evicted from Irving Texas because they’re a drag on the economy. Make a large mess and never clean up behind themselves. So you know right away the owners of the Cowboys. they ‘re in the Coal/Fracking/Oil/Mineral Extraction industry,  Which puts them into yet another league. The Babykillers. The ones who are killing their babies and ours with shit like the artificially constructed poison mesa right across Highway 24 AND very importantly the now chemically sterilized (by the poison mesa among other evil constructs) Fountain Creek. The conduit for Death Water to reach its ugly way down to the Gulf of Mexico. The Mesa on which some not ignorant, not stupid, not in any way able to plead Diminished Capacity when they reach the final judgment “developers” built half-million-to-start McMansions. Hey, at least they’re most immediately helping very rich assholes to commit suicide. But also the innocents, the children and pets who are exposed to the toxins.

Joseph “Spicer” Goebbels Demands that reporters at his daily propaganda session must conform

Says it all, really. Fascism on the hoof. Their other other creepy weird-o spokes troll Doug Lamborn is probably going to have a Town Meeting to support his Masters, and how much you want to bet he’s going to have the Long-time Fascist El Paso Co Sheriff’s Department try to suppress any dissent or even awkward questions? And the National Antisocial Party hard core supporters call themselves by the Orwellian lie “Freedom Caucasians oops I mean Caucus”, as totalitarian as it gets.


Spicer says no connection between Administration Hate Speech and Hate Crimes.

This shit writes itself. It includes the worn to a nub rhetoric about liberal hyperbole. Look for il Douche to jump on that  bandwagon. He’ll have some kind of blarney about him being a victim and perhaps it was us ultra-inclusivists  doing the murders as an Agent Provocateurs campaign. Kind of like all those alleged lynchings were really just show-off suicidal negroes, who tied their hands behind their backs, hoisted themselves in a noose and set themselves on fire just to make White Supremacists look guilty.


Entertainment — DickBerry is demanding a recount of “stolen” student council election at Texas A&M

Because the guy who lost the election was the scion of a prominent Trump $upporter. Money can’t buy everything, dude, get over it. Also the winner who “stole” the election is gay. Which offends Perry because he’s very sensitive about who is having sex with other adults. So he dropped all his official duties of hiding further American strategic arms agreement violations. Maybe we’re selling nerve gas or nukes to some third world Hereditary Dictator like Queen Elizabeth 2. And dismantling all the safety and environmental laws which would mean his comrades in the oily business won’t have to clean up their big nasty mess. It does have a sinister side, though.            One of the biggest money makers A&M has is ROTC. This ain’t the JROTC you know and loathe from high school. No sir. This is actually being in the army reserves. You might, if your age is =/> than mine, remember the theme “Pigs Off Campus!” Technically it’s an agricultural college. But there’s the militarization and, this is important…. Trump is their Commander in Chief. So, will DickBerry pull the punk ass move of getting his stepdaddy Donald to clean up his mess? (again)


Affordable Care Act stands, And Standing Rock tribe vindicated by oil spill

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. Read more »


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.
