Bogdan ‘The Cossack’ recommends some music, culture, and history…

My Dear Friend, Bogdan, asked me to link people here in the US with some Cossack music, culture, and history. Here it goes then:
 
Ой у полі верба – Oi u poli verba – Ukrainian cossack song of 17th century. Kind of like when rodeo meets the sea…
 
Thousands of Cossacks fights for Dombass – The History of Russia is repeated. NATO and its puppets meet defeat in Donbas…
 
The Cossack Rebellion 1648. This history is all rather intricate and complicated. Does the US government really want to defeat Russia that bad that it will actually continue foolishly leaping into the fire of Eastern European rivalries?


The sad fall of the Jewish religion into becoming a mainly political text for turning out neo fascist robots

‘It is hammered into us that the history of Jewry has been brought to an end and that Israel is its end point. Israel functions as an eraser of Jewish history, of memory, of languages, of traditions and of Jewish identities. Israeli politics is not only criminal against the Palestinian people. It claims to be the heir of Jewish history when it has misrepresented that history and betrayed it. Israel knowingly puts the Jews in danger wherever they find themselves. And it transforms them into robots summoned to justify the unjustifiable.’ –This is an excerpt from a great commentary found this weekend on the Counterpunch website at ‘The Avant-Garde of Islamophobia-Israel Against the Jews’


Does Putin have the flu? Is he on Mars with his new ‘love baby’? Or might there be a coup in progress in Russia?

The Western propaganda war machine needs its ‘hate doll’ to sell….. Oh my Satan! We have not heard from ‘Putler’ for more than a week! It hurts so very much, because Hillary and her emails is just so damn boring. Be sure to write about it, if perhaps you know where Vladimir is? We need to know so very damn bad….


Does your insurance insure nothing?

images-7What is the good of having ‘insurance’ that you cannot afford to use? I personally would say that it is basically just good for nothing except ripping you off, and so think others, as well as I do. Insurance where one cannot afford to pay the deductible is ‘insurance’ that does not actually insure. See Americans have insurance but can’t afford to use it.


75% of Denver cops’ cameras are left turned off

CopCameras
What are these criminals covering up? We might never know unless the Denver mayor changes the policies here. It’s costly in money to the city treasury and costly to human life not to have those cameras turned on. ‘Monitor: Denver cops failed to record many clashes with body cameras’


Co-pilots Dubya and Barack drone over to Selma to drone on

James Reeb You may or may not have noticed it, but the 50th anniversary of the attack in Selma Alabama, by the racist White police forces there, was remembered by those many politicians this weekend, who never would participate in the exact same sort of event if it were to be held today.
 
The lowlife lowlights of the 50th anniversary ceremony were Dubya Bush and Barack O’bomber, the Drone Bomber Sniper President in Office at this very moment. Let’s not review so much the silliness of their words as they droned on into the crowd, but let us instead remember one of the very many real heroes of their time, James Reeb, who sacrificed his life while supporting the REAL Civil Rights Movement… all just 50 years ago from this weekend.


It’s not Mothers Day- It’s International Women’s Day!

This headline from Montreal caught our attention today… ‘Women Unite Against Austerity Measures’
 
Well…. Why Not? Nobody should advocate prosperity for the banks and austerity for those who actually do the work instead of merely owning capital (stored up work done by other people). Women should and CAN lead the way against austerity, repression, and constant war making.


US militarism is on the increase, and so is American societal racism- First Look

AMERICAN-SNIPER-POSTERAmericans tend to see racism in terms of being solely a Black and White, White versus Black sort of issue. And since we no longer have an overt and blatant, separate but not very equal Apartheid State, White Americans tend to pat themselves on the back and then deny that much any racism actually still exists in US society. This mindset then goes on to blame Blacks for there still being huge problems in their communities. Whites have done their part to make equality supposedly happen say these Whites, and if US Blacks are worse off today, it is only because they are not as good and hard working as Whites mostly think that they themselves are.

Slam Bam, no thank you, Mam- the ‘flashbang’ bra holster bad idea

old_ladyThe gun fetishists are never at a loss, it seems, to come up with bad ideas when it comes to their sick love of guns. This one is guaranteed to cause more harm than good… FLASHBANG (BRA) HOLSTER: An Overview.


Ding Dong the Wicked Witch is Dead!

images-53What else can we really say here? This woman loved the military and hated the poor and she and Ronnie in the US as ruling class elite are responsible for making the mess the entire world still faces today. Thatcher’s policies have led us into a world where misery is proliferating non stop and her legacy is nothing more than riches for the super rich and poverty and austerity for the poor. What an evil witch!


Barbaric USA- our society is in love with Pentagon child abuse and the use of military terrorism- Fly the Flag!

images-52Afghan Children Reported Among Dead in U.S. Strike… Do any of your neighbors really even care? Sure, they like to pretend that they ‘support life’ and such, and that they are Christians… but do they really oppose the use of their government’s terrorism abroad? Very few really do oppose it we know.


How many Black and Hispanic men have been robbed of their lives by US cops and prosecutors?


Spread the morning after pill around the planet! Get out of the way, Obama!

Unknown-29A court ruling has overturned the US Obama Adminstrations’s, the Pope’s, and all the other Right Wing Christian groups’ legal restrictions blocking the increased use of the morning after pill inside the US. It will now be sold over the counter in the US and made more easily available to young teen women as well as older women.
 
Next trip out of the US to more restrictive countries, we urge you to take along several thousand of these pills with you and distribute them liberally to those that might need them. You might most probably help save a young woman’s life if you were to do so. And too bad the Democratic Party will go on and probably continue to try to sabotage better family planning rules with their friends, the religious Far Right. The Obama Administration is turning out to be the worst set of ‘Republicans’ we have had in the White House in the last decades. Egads… (See Obama Faces Choice on Morning-After Pill Limits)


Bill Clinton’s Haitian ‘aid’ campaigning was all a big fraud

How many times did Bill Clinton pose himself as wanting to save the US made impoverished Haiti? I lost count. Well now a study shows it was all a big fraud, with most of the so called US aid to Haiti going to US companies, and only 1% of it to Haitians themselves! Yes, that’s right. …just 1%! And the study also found that the biggest recipient of U.S. aid after the earthquake was Chemonics International, a for-profit international development company based in Washington, D.C., that has more than 4,800 employees. These are US corporate creeps posing as international saviours alongside their co-partners, The Pentagon. See Study Finds Haiti Aid Largely Went to US Groups


Obama is not politically correct and regrets it!

Kamala D. Harris___ Today in Wonderland USA, President Obama apologized to a woman for earlier calling her ‘hot’. However, she was then warned that if she continued to get upset about his male chauvinist sexism that he would have to send a drone to her house and take appropriate CIC action.

Democrats prepared to beat up on the elderly with their buddies, the Republicans

Unknown-36~~~ We could see this a long time coming… Obama ‘offering to cut US pensions’ for deficit deal …Time to kick both parties to the side and stop that ‘Kiss me I’m a liberal (Democrat) bullshit. In fact, it’s way past the time to have done so. Neither Democrat nor Republican come the next round of corporate ruling class (s)elections! Voting for these people is like putting a bullet to your head. This country can hardly be called a democracy at all.


Obama continues to occupy Korea with Pentagon troops as one part of multiple US proxy wars against Russia and China

WW1 and WW2 began because various (mainly European) capitalist powers began to battle each other over ownership and control over their multiple world wide colonies. Today, the US corporate world has their US government battling the newest capitalist powers, Russia and China, over who will control the world’s scattered and now rapidly dwindling natural resources.

Today’s class society (capitalism) alienates us all and creates a generalized unhappiness

Unknown-32 ~~~~~~ My favorite question for America’s hordes of Right Wingers is simply to ask them just what exactly are they defending so hard? They never ever come up with anything much coherent when asked this question and I have become to ask myself if they are so alienated from others and themselves to the point of not even being aware of it? Interestingly, today the alternet website published a great introspection of our generalized societal unhappiness which asked a similar question of us all. Why Are We All Ignoring Our Loneliness?

Prosecutors in the Blood Covered State of Colorado go for Blood to be extracted from the criminally insane

The Obama Administration- how coach plebeian they do travel! …NOT.

images-50 One of the most sadly comical aspects of the Obama Administration and the rather dense liberal types that put their hopes for future change in them, is how it is pretended that The Obamas are of, AND FOR, the people. And many brainwashed Americans even believe that!!!????? However, if so, why does this Administration’s bosses spend so much money like this when they just travel a night or two?
