Terry Maketa gets free pass on his crimes, just like every other pig EXCEPT…

...except for the piggies who had their cases tried in the Street Court. And got their ticket to Hell expedited. Soon or prolonged, they all go to Hell. I don't have to do anything to them, they gather their arrogance, murders and other crimes to their nasty little hearts, each day becoming more of a harsh burden, the weight of it makes their existence more onerous and as they're taking their last gasps of air, they know they are bound for their date with Satan. There will be their Satanic Chaplains Ed Maxwell, Donna Mills, Bill Winter, Gino Geraci, Jerome Nixon, Larry and Jan Loser, Robert Ofee, Manny Hays, Bob Paige, Bill Payton, Tim Shaffer, Carl Nelson II, all of them. any of  them, comforting the Pig's family with lies about how noble daddy or grandpa was and they're certainly in heaven and  they, the chaplains, are going to Hell with all the other piggies. Maketa and the paid-off "prosecutors" and judges will join their comrades in Hell, soon or many years from now. Maketa is a member of the local Minutemen militia, bunch of coward racist scum, the lot of them, used his badge to give the MM punks access to the police training facilities, had "his" deputies act as hit men by beating and sometimes killing prisoners at "his" jail. Publicly funded private "pleasure dungeon" just like his chickenshit butt buddy Arpaio in Phoenix. Corruption like that... Then during the Black Forest wildfire four years ago, he had the firefighters concentrate on HIS property and let his neighbors, who are supposedly "protected" by his department, well, their properties were left to burn. So yesterday his fellow Ku Klux Klowns at the El Paso Kounty Kangaroo Kourts once again let him get away with felonies. Pigs of a feather.

Fukishima aka Japan’s Chenyobl… and what does it mean for Colorado?

Well, it's heating up. With the easiest way to measure and describe "radiation" : Heat. Temperature. Caloric Index. Right now it's at the level to actually light concrete on fire. I was going to subtitle The Japan Syndrome but that whole China Syndrome schtick is outdated by several decades. Melt a hole through to China, yeah. So I restrained myself from including it. There's amerikkka's very own ticking time bomb right outside of Dallas. At Glen Rose. You might say, as I sometimes do when I forget to use quantum logic, you know, the core of any unit of mass, time, space and energy being at the same place at the same time (it just seems redundant) and to mangle a line from Huxley, everything belongs to everything else. But I digress. The fastest shorcut not involving quantum theory is there are no significant mountains between here and there. The Rolling Hills, the exact name thereof, is where the reactor is, at Comanche Peak. If you go southwest you have Ranger Peak, the highest geologic feature in Texas east of the Pecos and named after the Texas Rangers, cops not baseball, had an incident with the Comanches in which for a change didn't involve getting the Rangers slaughtered. They're not as bad-ass as they portray themselves. And that's not in the way. The Llano Estacado, "Staked Plains" but they're no barrier. Maybe for riding a horse or walking, but for airborne fallout, nah. And Comanche Peak has started experiencing seismic events. This was discussed when several events happened, Haiti, Fukishima, Deepwater Horizon,and the Upper Big Branch Corporate Mass Murder of 29 miners. All of which, including the Comanche Peak reactor, have ties to Halliburton, Bush and Donald Trump, the Koch family and the Corporate Big Pigs are talking much smack about releasing all of these bastards from the fetters of "unwarranted safety regulations" including and especially for the Fracking companies... who apparently broke the substrate in North Central Texas to the point there is measurable and sometimes palpable (no need to get out your dictionary it's "able to be felt by the human body") earthquake activity all over North Texas. Which the Frackers say is impossible. They simply have to lie. And their Big Pig comrades like Trump and Don Blankenship and Bush and Cheney and Perry and Doug Lamborn and basically their entire rat-bastard families tell us that it's none of our business and included in the proposed destruction of all regulatory measures, they'll have police and courts prosecuting and imprisoning citizens who dare ask for details of what is done to our water, air, basic ability to walk outside without getting radiation poisoning... Just like they've been doing, essentially, only now it's on the way to being official. We'll be prosecuted for exposing or trying to expose THEIR crimes. They all try to act all "tough" and "macho" about it but they're essentially coward bitches who hide behind the Peasant Army and the fascist police and courts. The richest bitches

Because phreak Google, that’s why

I'm going to redo my operating system on my mobiles. Change it to Kali Linux  They'll still work as far as the phone company is concerned. Google has become megalomaniac on us. They act like they god-damn invented the internet, and have first dibs on every bit of data -- every datum would be more accurate. They're the ultimate snoops. Any measure of privacy flew out the Windows (had to pun that, sorry) years ago. In order to use the Android OS on my devices I would have to pay Google. Maybe not directly, but in bandwidth which is paid in my internet provider and the phone provider. Every time I take my phone out of airplane mode, Google has more than one "essential app" to update. Fuck that. Essential to whom, exactly?  I don't use Google + or youtube ultra-fantastic-consume-don't ask,  just consume, we'll tell you what to consume and at what price consume consume resistance is futile you must be assimilated. It's the "soft" Capitalist Dictatorship of Brave New World. I don't use their products, but they get root access to all my communications devices and according to the phone manufacturers, rooting my own phone would void my non-existent warranty. Google has joined the ranks of those who can Line up and take turns helping yourself to a Texas sized all-you-can-eat buffet of Kiss my Liberal Ass.  In an advanced and enlightened society it would be legal to hunt them. Compliance is futile, I will NOT be assimilated. The Android network makes it easier to communicate between Android devices, and all others must bow before that and wait their turn, humbly, with all servitude. Like a Masonic handshake. You might have read about the lawsuit by the "justice" department to force Apple to comply with them in putting spyware and a root-level password for them to listen into any conversation, anywhere in the world, regardless of in which political /territorial imperative the devices are sold or used. Fuck that shit. Did you notice something unsettling in all that? They didn't file a similar lawsuit against Google or Microsoft. By the United States federales. The FBI is claiming jurisdiction over the entire world,and Google and Microsoft have bowed down and sworn fealty to the Beast. There are 99 million results for "ceo of Google". If you extrapolate that to only ten persons per website that comes out to more people than there are in the entire world. And yes, a lot of people are calling it a manifestation of Antichrist. It's the global police state, served up on a platform you pay to implement. The CEO of Google, Sundar Pichai, is about impossible to contact at all. Like any kind of customer support at Google. There's a discussion on Google called fuck google  at the Orwellian named YouTube Help Forum. youtube@googleproductforums.com  It's a laugh a minute. There are a few Google cultists replying to the mass of curses tossed at youtube in particular but google in general. They claim to be volunteers. All

Deportation and Ethnic Cleansing

That should be "deportation IS ethnic cleansing" and it shouldn't even be on the agenda in "the land of the free" like the lying song says. Nay, verily. But it is. The part about deporting anybody who is awaiting citizenship for even traffic violations has been kicked around, and really should be kicked out. It is in it's entirety Racism. When people who chant loudly about deporting "aliens" the first image they put in each others stupid little pointy head is "Mexican". Which to them means anybody who has a spanish surname and dark skin. Even the Native Americans who were bought and sold back and forth between Spain and French in what was later known as the Louisiana Purchase. When the U.S. racist government, at the time presided over by slave holding Plantation Aristocrats, it got the name Louisiana Purchase but there wasn't any clear boundaries. This goes with my post that Zeb Pike was an Illegal Alien.  European kings who had never set foot in America sold Euro-American dictators not only the land, but the people on the land.    And sped up the already official policy of deporting Americans based on our ancestry. And religion. A lot of the ethnic cleansing take-america-back-to-the-1840s racist movement circles around Religion. Muslims of course, and to the Hate Party that means stereotyped Arabic persons and American Black Muslims. Once the Hate Party gets past the current eulogies for Muhammad Ali, who they considered a traitor while he was alive, "They" are going to jump right back into the "Deport All Muslims" sinkhole they dug for themselves. The deportations began long ago. After "french and indian war" victories by the British and their allies, much more complex than I just wrote but an order of magnitude more complex than the Hate Party describe it... And before a group of exiled British Aristocrats like Washington and Jefferson, deported from England for not being the "right kind of christians" declared independence from their Parent Corporation, maybe y'all have heard of that... But in this inter-Regnum inter-bellum period the English overlords started deporting Native Americans. Who were graciously granted by King George Hanover and King George Washington the prizilege of moving their entire nations to the Ohio. Even this wasn't enough for the colonists. Oh, hell no! They made it a condition "intolerable" in the Declaration of Independence, along with the abolitionist movement in England. Their parent corporation. Oh, the Horror! Not being allowed to set up plantations on Indian land (ahem... that's every square inch of America, y'all) and having their Human Property taken away from them, must have given the Plantation Aristocrats night terrors. Daniel Boone, perhaps unintentionally, set up an incursion into the Ohio Territories, the Indian Nation. He's considered quite the hero for breaking the treaties before the ink was dried. If Davy Crockett, who many Americans can't tell the difference between him and Mr Boone, actually was born on a mountaintop in Tennessee, the greenest state in the land of the free and all that other

And Korea…. being rolled over by a new empire

Alternative Title, Why there actually IS a Communist half of Korea. Probably more than half now. They didn't change their language or identity for centuries under the rule of Chinese and Japanese emperors. It is a very big feeling of pride and nobody should ever forget it. So what does our Empire do?  For one, they're running whole villages of farmers off their ancestral lands, the ones built up literally from swamp into productive farmland by their ancestors and themselves, as it's an ongoing process. They Worked For Their Land. Not the US Government or even the Seoul Government. And now, in the name of "Freedom", the US military are stripping the land from the people who made the land. It's not the first time, God knows. The whole American Empire has been built on stolen land. From the first successful english colony at Plymouth, which they named after a port in the country which basically ran them off. The very first "free" Market Capitalist theft in America, the first Corporate Thieves. Or technically, the first English capitalist thieves. Not good at any kind of labor, especially farming, and they used their seeds to make beer the first summer they were here. Then the stupid bastards almost starved, they were rescued by a thousands of years old neighboring Socialist economic bloc rescued their shiny white english buttocks, Then they had a massive feast to celebrate, which the Socialist Neighbors actually catered, after which the english said, hey, good grub, thanks for saving us, now Get Off Our Land. It's been that way every since. Some of them, like the Heritage Foundation, are actually proud of that shit. They got the land seizures subsidized and got the land for little or no money out of their own pockets. We've got one such land thief made into an Idol at the corner of Platte and Nevada. Not really AT the intersection, IN the intersection Credited with "creating" Colorado Springs. Our Father who is art in the intersetion. You can't adequately see to make a left turn onto or off Nevada or Platte. People have died from trying. That's the level of Hatred for Native Americans or (Remember the Koreans? I do) Korean natives and their cultures. Their Non-White Non-English much more civilized cultures.   The Anglo establishment in The US, a tiny minority even for White Americans, have a doctrine called Dominionism or Manifest Destiny which teaches that they, The English Episcopalians, (doesn't help to be Generic  White or Generic Christian, most whites and Christians in America are not invited) are Annointed By God to control not just America but the entire world. WTF? I grew up attached to that culture. And I never got un-astonished (I'm from Texas, we make up words a lot) by how fucking arrogant they are. In the Korean situation, the Seoul government has sold itself entirely to the Dominionist Empire. There were in the link repeated Here, a probable 10,000 "free" Korean cops and soldiers clearing out two ancient villages to make

US has Duty to protect against Domestic White Sex Slavers

Beat the drums, play the pipes, fire up the drones, we have a new target. This one I get to choose. Barbara Nimri Aziz. published on Global Research has an article (see link) that starts with the propaganda about the Incubator Babies, one of the lies told in the buildup to GulfWarz One, Operation Deceptive Storm and goes to Syrian and Iraqi ISIS as being purveyors of sex slaves.  And of course only Muslim men ever practice such a thing, right? No such thing could ever happen here in AmeriKKKa, right? Not by people, surely, with names like Al or Harry or other western good ol' boy WASP nominally Christians, right? So let's have drone strikes against New Braunfels Texas or Reno Nevada or any other sovereign entity that shelters these dirty dogs. Come on, lads, let's go rescue the ladies in the U.S. of A.... Here in the Homeland. Let's wipe out the cities and suburbs harboring the "christian" sex slave owners. And not just those Funny quasi-christian cults like LDS or SDA,  living in compounds out in the bundoks, where there aren't any impartial witnesses, just the BATF and FBI agents word against conveniently dead from Suicide By Cop, let's get the Catholics, Methodists, Baptists... The witnesses could go before Congress, just like the suspiciously Non-Educated Arab women who, with no school permitted to them but they speak very fluent English, like the daughter of a Kuwaiti diplomat who hadn't been to Kuwait since her early childhood but somehow became a Kuwaiti Neo-Natal nurse overnight, and "saw" Iraqi soldiers throw preemie babies on the floor and stomp on them. Come on, boys, we have to back up the propaganda, legitimize the war effort, why not make the war actually equal on all fronts, eh? Fetch out the torture freaks and burn their towns to the ground? Israel did it to Israelites as recorded in the book of Judges. Not just killing off their kinfolk in the tribe of Benjamin but, when there were only a couple thousand Benjamite men fighting a guerrilla resistance in the desert, they repented of their evil in almost erasing a whole tribe of their own people, the Judges decreed that a city, Jabesh of Gilead, should be destroyed and all males (cough cough ahem including babies) and any women who were not virgins should be put to the sword BECAUSE THEY WEREN'T FERVENTLY AGAINST THEIR BENJAMITE COUSINS AND THIS WAS AN EARLY RECORDED INSTANCE OF "IF YOU'RE NOT WITH US YOU MUST BE AGAINST US" and by the way, this IS in the Bible book of Judges chapter 21. Verse 12 says only 400 young virgins were spared. To be given as brides for the soldiers of Benjamin. and y'all know we can't criticize the Modern State of Israel or their ancestors at all ever. So I won't. But if it's good enough for Israel it must be good enough for America. Especially as Our Noble And Righteous Leaders have used the excuse to kill a whole lot

Juneteenth whiteout on Fox News

Lots of blather about it being Fathers Day but not a word about Juneteenth.          Imagine that if you will... crap about what to do if your dad is deployed. Tie into Independence Day movie sequel and Army recruiters. Nothing about Juneteenth. All the other stations at least gave it a mention but Fox, hell no. Even the notorious Gazette had a story.  

Tom Jefferson, Founding Father and Serial Rapist

Hu-wi. That's Cherokee for "hu-wi". The Silly Season is on us.  Every election year we get bombarded ("we" defined as anybody trying to get information to process and mold our separate opinions) by something called The Expressed Original Intent of The Founding Fathers, with both the Founding Fathers and any coherent shared-by-all-or-even-most Americans beliefs at the time of the revolution being as elusive as the majick unicorn who bears the faerie who guards the Holy Grail. And almost as easy to catch.          One opinion artist put the number of F.F. persons as 3 (THREE) being Ben Franklin, G. Washington and T. Jefferson. Out of the 4 million humans counted in the first U.S. Census. Three. Two of whom were slaveowners. Franklin didn't have slaves, Washington didn't write in his diary every or any instance of screwing his slaves but Jefferson did, at least on one particular victim. The "serial" part is the long term multiple times the self-made bastard abused one victim in particular, Sally Hemings, aged 14 at the time of the first assault. He would have gotten a life sentence for it today. This muddies the pool of Founding Fathers and the interpretation of just any of the Divine Precepts by which, according to some, every act of the US and state governments must be measured.       In shorter terms, bullshit. A great steaming pile equal to or greater  than =/> the annual output of the Great State of Texas. For all or even any of the Original Intents of the Foun... eh, whatever to be relevant or even known or opined by modern Americans, every psychic wannabee in the world would have to (coordinated with all the others) hold daily seance sessions. Which would be a more productive use of their time than the usual activities. Recap: Slavery being a hot issue at the time with more than any two or even few interpretations of what constitutes slavery being as elusive as the Majick Unicorn and all the rest of my snarky first paragraph, and that only one issue on which the so-called founding fathers violently disagreed.  See Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr Duel on wiki or google. I'm not going to make a link on that. Except for a mental link, free for the taking by any and all. You're welcome. To finish out the beginnings of that paragraph, slavery was just one of the Original Intent bullshit questions we're supposed to answer by just grabbing the answer out of the æphemera or maybe just your momma's rectal orifice, voting rights, (originally denied to 90% of Americans at the time), conscription, definition of Common Defense, public welfare, citizenship issues great and small... And we're supposed to make election of quote "our" quote "leaders" based on that. Aaron Burr and Jefferson would be in prison for life if they were majickly reincarnated and pulled their bullshit crimes today. And that's just the start. Another number, contested of course, approximately 80,000 free white Militia and Continental Army at the most At One Time in the revolution,

I could have done the agent-provocateur thing on Orlando

Probably would have talked myself into believing it was right, too. I could have become a poseur, which is French and derogatory, means a cheap actor, and it's easy to pronounce, just say "poser" and there you have it. I could go to a mixed forum and say that, sure, the guy thought to be the gunner in Orlando might have "confessed" or boasted over a cell phone to 9-1-1 that he was doing it for Isis. (maybe he did it as a jilted suitor of one or more of the fellows on the dance floor, or one of the ladies, but the Isis thing is the official story and they're sticking to it)  and say "but hey, the homo crowd deserved it." I could pick any of a long list of homophobic organizations, usually religio-affiliated. The Klan for instance. Rouse a few rebels. Draw out a little extra heat to pour onto Mediterranean Ethnic types.   And the sad truth is, nobody really has offered proof that the shooter was Isis affiliated.  So far. Leads to a whole herd of waddiffs... Waddiff they have pegged the right shooter but the wrong motive? Waddiff that was a deliberate ploy on his part? Waddiff he was instructed by a party unknown to do it, for the personal satisfaction of that party? I like the word party because it can be singular or plural at the discretion of the reader. Waddiff the motive of such a party was politico-religious but for a far different philosophy than ISIS? There is a suspicion, never actually proved nor disproved, that Marinus van der Lubbe was a gullible fellow and the Nazis wired him up to do it. "wired somebody up" is a gang term for this kind of action. Waddiff the war party did it to convince skeptics to join in his-her-their Holy War (another ubiquitous word, doesn't say WHICH version of Holy War) and vote for or against a politician in the upcoming elections? There is a great big pile of money involved for investors in the war. Historically they have been like the Bush crime family, selling arms and other supplies to all sides in any given conflict. While not committing themselves to personal danger by enlisting, or if one of Their Demon Spawn got caught in the Draft, they would make sure he had a cozy stateside duty station. At that point it's all gravy for Wall Street in general. Some of the investors ARE (or were, this has gone on far more than one lifetime, they were doing it in the Crusades too) generals and admirals. Poindexter-Secord-North leaps to mind. How much do you think they're vested in this particular conflict? And this could be recycled for a long series of "particular conflicts".  In WW2, certain groups (cough cough wink nudge we know who that might be, eh?) there was a certain American family who were selling guns, ships, cloth for uniforms, commodities etc to for instance the Royal Navy of the British Empire AND to

Seriously, ‘Pocohantas’?

Both major parties are throwing the election. Look for somebody to come riding in on a white horse declaring himself a messiah. In other news, 15 minutes of nationwide airtime about Las Vegas and football, in combination. Beer and circuses. 15 minutes of coast-to-coast is a big deal for what is a really trivial story, another town wishing to spend stolen money to subsidize a group of pampered millionaires who are paid to run around on a field chasing a ball. And their psycho fans. To distract people from thinking about the impending fall of their empire, and keep them from thinking long enough to question the wars.   The emperor diddles while Nova Roma burns.

How do you know it’s summer in Louisiana?

Two ways, one is that you walk out and the heat and humidity knock you down and kick all the will to live right out of you... or there's a combo of hurricane and poorly maintained infrastructure which  makes people float face down in the French Quarter. Sorry for a) using somebody else's commercial and b) coming out with such a dark intro into Climate Change. Not really. I'm not sorry. But you notice the people who tell us it's not climate change but instead a "slight weather adjustment" also use the term "Market Correction" when they really mean a crash so bad it has the feel of a Biblical famine? But of course, anthropogenic climate change is just a myth. Just look at Pike's Peak. Notice something there? No ice cap. Nope, none.  And it's not even summer yet.  

But Little Johnnie can’t read? Why?

I'm starting this with the documented statistic that half of the adults in Tarrant County Texas are functionally illiterate.  Yes, one of the three most heavily populated counties in the state, and 50% would not be able to clearly read and comprehend these two sentences. Meanwhile, back at the ranch and Allen and McKinney school districts are paying more than 60 MILLION dollars apiece to build high (schools? nay, verily) school football stadiums. Got to have Temples to worship the oblong ball. Never mind the concurrent and consequent price paid by people being ignorant as the day is long. But, hey, they's jus po' folk and everybody knows po' folk ain't got no need for book learnin' and such. It's the epitome of the "Texas Miracle" ex-Governors Bush and Perry boast so loudly as their major contribution to society. Here's a little bit of information from CBS News about it, with more links. You know, football is more important than people actually being able to read. It's not just Texas, Colorado is turning in that direction as well. Witness the hysteria about the Super Bowl twice in the past three years, starring the Donkos. Two and a half years ago I was parading around with a ladle and a 55 gallon drum of HaterAde (figuratively) but the first 5 minutes of the game convinced me to give the fans a break from me mocking their silly-ass obsession. I'm surprised that Doug Lamborn didn't have a Congressional Investigation into that. Dismayed, that is. It would be a huge comparison to the rubber-stamp Congressional Investigations into the illegal wars, torture and widespread police brutality incidents. And rip-off oil company and banking deals. Why not? Because so many Americans can't read due in large part to the culture of Entertainment rather than Education. Bread and Circus... The Empire is spiralling down to the depths of Hell and the ones who are profiting from it, throw distractions at the peasants. My brother lives within spitting distance of the Cowboys arena in Arlington. Which the PEOPLE of Arlington are subsidizing.        If the Free Market Champions who own the profits of the Cowboys can't afford to invest their own money in "their" team maybe they should get off the Corporate Welfare gravy train. My family, none of them rich, are required to pay extra taxes so pampered millionaires can prance around chasing a ball on a very expensive lawn. Why don't the Tea Party and the Doug brothers, Lamborn and Bruce, and other tax warriors pick up on that? Maybe for the same reason the number of Tax Refugee multi-millionaire Warmongers who infest our neck of the woods aren't being audited by these Fearless Watchdogs of the Public Purse. Because it's cheaper and faster to rig elections and bribe government officials than to do anything to make the world better. I'll end this the same way it started. 50% of the voters in Tarrant Co Texas wouldn't be able to read a single sentence of this, and the rich bitch

A K A Pork sandwich… killer pigs on a roll…

El Paso County SD /CSPD and paramedics murdered another one, Erica Klag, age 40 and arrested for failing to appear on a traffic ticket. Gave her the Death Penalty ad hoc for having a seizure.  The Para's said she wasn't having a seizure. The pigs put her in a holding cell in restraints, where she went into cardiac arrest. Jail so-called "medical" staff responded and sent her to Memorial where she died. These "Medical" staff are employees of Correctional Health Care Inc, the Triple Lie, as they correct nothing and give no care and have no idea what Health is. The same group of sorry sell out rat bastards who assisted in the torture and murder of John Walter two years ago. I bet that all the "health care" and Ku Klux Kops had a massive orgasm when they learned that they had killed another one.  Sick perverted sadists. They get sexually aroused by the use of force,  That's why they became cops in the first place. Their Nazi mommas taught them to be like that.  

I’m having a little issue with consumerism/marketing

As is everybody. I don't watch TV very attentively. But it's still there and a loving God in His infinite wisdom and mercy somehow neglected to give me earlids, so I can't insulate myself from it and still remain in modern society. Who in the world now has not seen that lizard representation of an insurance company? Just for instance. They're branding us. and that's their exact word for it. When I was a kid branding was usually an exclusive term about livestock. Branding a calf is your way of declaring ownership. My short time working at an advertising company, just doing the trained monkey work, like putting cans of soda on doors in the midst of the Cola Wars of the 1980s (we had a contract with a very large conglomerate which among other other things involved a streetcorner table exhibit with cans of two competing brands of soda called "Take the BLEEEP Challenge") changed my perspective away from Madison avenue which I never saw and Wall Street which I also never saw... See, that soda pop promotion was the one time in the company's history in which the workers were required to wear advertising. And the rest of the time we were forbidden. Concert Tee Shirt? Sports Team Logo? Unpaid advertising. The company was PAID to advertise, right down to those of us who put grocery store weekly ads on doors. You might love the team or band a whole lot, but the fact is that shirt is YOU paying THEM to work for them in their advertising campaign. In most jobs it's the other way around, you get paid for your work. Even in sub-minimum wage contract work. How about a national or local Don't Work For Free Day, wherein each participant refuses to wear advertising (and yeah, that includes shirts and pants with a tag or even a large print of the manufacturers name on them). Take it further, don't talk about your favorite band or TV show or sports team (which is really revenue generating entertainment, not an actual contest of skill) or supporting the Army or any other Corporate Government entity. Try, for just one day. Fat chance any corporate information (buy our products) medium or media will let anybody know it's happening. (buy our products damn it) This is an example of the struggle of actual social activism, writ small. So the seeds are planted. Let's see if anything grows, other than the corporate weeds.

Corporate personhood: unintended consequences

yes/no: are corporations persons? Are Corporations composed of shareholders? Do Corporations act on behalf and with the explicit consent of the shareholders? Has the corporation, with said consent, used any consideration of value including the intellectual property of the corporate officers or of salaried employees or contractors ever made statements supporting the Death Penalty or joined as paying members any organization supporting the Death Penalty? Do they accept without question the definitions of Capital crimes including giving false testimony which results in the death of another human being, killing for money, treason? Of the shareholders holding a majority of the stocks bonds or other assets of the corporation, do ANY have stocks in Advertising AND firearms corporations AND Data/Software Corporations which publish movies or video games glorifying violence? Do any of the corporate Persons advocate the notion that firearms are necessary for self defense? Have any of the corporate persons made statements advocating lenience in the cases of persons condemned to death as accessories to capital murder, such as the "getaway driver"? Does the corporation support acts of retaliation against the perpetrators of 9/11? Does the Corporation support such acts even against nations which were NOT the perpetrators, such as Iraq, Iran, Palestine, Afghanistan? Combine the answers with facts such as Advertising for guns, like SUV ads, are directed to people who feel powerless and victimized, that firearms are used by Americans in either accidental or intentional homicides which are NOT self defense many times more than any adjudicated cases of Self Defense, that the violent movies and video games teach that killing is not only acceptable but fun, and NewsCorp and its subsidiaries such as FOX News and the Republican and Tea Parties are guilty of many more capital murders Every Year than the number of victims of the WTC attacks.

Ballot Caging and the real difference between D and R

The R's don't want people to vote. More people politically active, means they lose. Very simple. You might ask yourself Self, what's the worst that could happen? What's the difference between a D and an R? What real difference does it make if large groups of people are disenfranchised? Why not ask the R's? I mean, they're the ones who spend lots of effort making sure people don't vote, right? Like County Clerk Williams and his lapdog Kathryn Young making sure people who didn't vote in Nov can't vote in Apr. Mr Williams was elected in a mudslide last anointed High Priest of Republican Vote Suppression, and made sure as many people as possible couldn't vote. It's his "official" job to do the opposite, but since he only represents Republican Voters the Official Version went out the window. One of the things his term-limited former fuhrer Bob Balink (doesn't that sound a lot like a Quayle?) did was move the Polling Place on the Westside, a strong Democratic district, across the Great Barrier Highway, to a warehouse district as far removed from a bus stop as you can get in this town, the only way you could get to it is up two streets, 21st street and Busch, UP A STEEP HILL with no sidewalks. Does that sound much to you like they actually wanted for instance DISABLED people to vote, especially when they were trying to rig the election in favor of people who want DISABLED Americans to just curl up and die? Hmmmm... How many people who have no difficulty walking actually go by their polling place weeks or days early to make sure that nobody sneaked away with their polling place, which WAS conveniently located in the middle of the population center of the West Side and a short block away from a bus stop? Miss Johnnie and I didn't find out until election day in the afternoon. Fortunately at that point we had just gotten a car. I would have a great deal of difficulty navigating up that hill, Miss Johnnie would never have made it, somebody in a wheelchair would never have made it... somebody just getting off work, going to the West Middle School location and discovering the neat little signs that Boob Balink had put up saying "Ha ha, we SCREWED you out of an opportunity to vote, too bad so sad, you should have been born rich like the only people I represent were!" Elections are held in April and November. Many people unfamiliar to Colorado Springs wouldn't know that there is a strong statistical chance of SNOW in April and definitely in November.

Bibi is NOT Israel, revisited.

The Israeli Knesset is debating a bill proposed by David Rotem of the extreme right Yisrael Beiteinu party that would require all Israeli citizens to swear loyalty to Israel as a “Jewish and democratic state.” This bill is targeted at increasing pressure on the twenty percent of Israelis who are Palestinian citizens while forcing the ultra Orthodox Jewish minority who reject the legitimacy of any state not based on Jewish biblical law to accept Zionism. If passed in its proposed form, citizens unwilling to take the loyalty oath would be at risk of losing citizenship I wrote an article about a year ago, I think, titled "Bibi is NOT Israel!" but the title was in Hebrew. The Modern State of Israel uses Judaism the way George Bush uses Christianity, a prop, only that and nothing more, quoth the Raving, nevermore.. and yeah, I deliberately mangled the line from Poe. Zionism is at most a sect of Judaism, so in fact are any Christian sects. In fact, when Judah split off from Israel while Solomon lay dying, it was done on a sectarian level equal to England and the Vatican. Bibi courts some reactionary extremists who are pushing him as a Jewish Pope, who would imagine? Other than the Zionist faction is more secular than sectarian... And the absence of a "Unified Judaism" doesn't seem to have wiped out Judah in the past 3500 years, so why the new Anti-Semitic actions from people claiming to represent Israel, the people, in the form of Israel the state? Bibi can no more claim to represent Judaism than the Pope could. Either the people or the faith. When I looked up the Hebrew spelling of the last post, that Bibi is not Israel, I also tried and gave up after a few moments (I had a headache, the soup was boiling over, the dog ate my homework, whatever) but I stumbled across some sectarian Messianic as in "Jewish to Christian Convert" website claiming that Netanyahu is a Messianic name. Which could be and probably is exploited in Israeli politics when dealing with people who are sectarian. This is like the term "under God" being placed into the Pledge of Allegiance to try to overcome LEGITIMATE sectarian concerns, by Christian Groups and JEWISH groups, over the Idolatrous worship of the State embodied in the rest of the pledge. These groups are, now, commonly dismissed as being "Not REAL Christians" by the same groups, like the TeaBags and RepubliKlan Party as being "Not REAL Americans". Arbitrarily because we don't share the Fascist Agenda so common in such groups. Or Plutocratic. The way of saluting the flag during the Pledge was changed at the same time, due to political expediency, from the Roman Right-hand-extended forward salute, known as the Bellamy Salute, to the Roman hand-over-heart salute, equally a salute to the power of the state, worshiped as a god. The other two are a (now) Military Salute and one used when invoking the name of any god while taking an oath, all

Contrasting the Libertarians with UFPJ

The Democratic Party-tied, United For Peace and Justice (the largest beginning of a kernel of a national US antiwar coalition), has been a disaster for those wanting truly to mobilize antiwar sentiment in the US. So has the Democratic Party-tied organization, MoveOn. Meanwhile, the remnants of the old leadership of the US antiwar movement during the Vietnam Era continue to busy themselves talking in Marxist tongues and contemplating their own navels at Louis Proyect's do-nothing site, Marxmail. But what about the Libertarians? Check out John Walsh's commentary, 'Shaming the Official Antiwar Movement'.

Raul Castro’s daughter blasts homophobia

I thought that this news item was of note, so here it is in full. Walter Lippmann's website is worth visiting, too. See below... Tony Raul Castro's daughter blasts homophobia Havana, May 21 (EFE).- The daughter of acting Cuban President Raul Castro spoke out in favor of tolerance and against gay-bashing on the occasion of the International Day against Homophobia. "The communications media have a big responsibility in the education of the public, in developing a culture of respect for people due to their sexual identity and sexual orientation," said Mariela Castro, the head of the National Sex Education Center, in remarks broadcast Sunday by state television. Castro attended an unusual film-debate held in the "23 y 12" hall in Havana, where organizers showed the U.S. film "Boys Don't Cry," which tells a story based on real events of the difficulties, discrimination and violence to which a young transsexual woman was subjected. "Starting with the advances we have had on these matters in our country, it's that we (are) trying to better visualize the goal of this international - and in this case national - day," said the sexologist. Castro said that "homophobia and transphobia still exist in the world in a very strong, very cruel, very distriminatory way against homosexual, transsexual and transgender people in a general sense and, above all, as a result of ignorance." The government of Fidel Castro, who provisionally handed over power to younger brother Raul last July after undergoing major surgery, has in the past displayed marked intolerance for homosexuals, imprisoning gays and quarantining AIDS sufferers. The National Sex Education Center, a teaching, research and assistance institution created in 1989, has proposed in the Cuban legislature a bill to legally recognize the sex changes undergone by transsexuals, at the same time it has been pushing for some time an awareness campaign in the state-controlled media. The International Day against Homophobia was begun on May 17, 2005, a decade after the World Health Organization removed homosexuality from its list of mental illnesses. Thirteen years after its first showing in movie theaters on the island, on May 5, Cubans watched the first broadcast on local television of the 1993 film "Fresa y chocolate" (Strawberry and Chocolate), an allegory against intolerance and discrimination against homosexuals. Recently, Cuban TV also showed "La mujer de mi hermano" (My Brother's Wife), which also deals with the theme of homosexuality.
