Of course it was the 7th cavalry at Nogun Ri

Even the rightest wing-est extremist in Texas don’t hold a candle to Some Colorado Wingnuts, the ones who call Natives “prairie niggers” or “wagon burners”, especially when any negative reviews of the Seventh Cavalry massacres. Like Wounded knee, a vengeance quest for Custer and a bunch of his homicidal lunatic troopers got their own asses sent to Hell. And before that, at the Little Ouachita, murdering men, women and children at a mostly Cheyenne winter encampment. Must not criticize heroic asswipes like Custer. Oh, that song they adopted, Garryowen, that’s about a really rowdy  custom (performed by the lads of Garryowen, a town in Ireland) of getting drunk and beating up on cops. Anyhoo, I got this from Wiki because it’s easy. Sue me. It’s about another massacre and why the people of Korea aren’t as enthusiastic about the U.S. Big Brother as the South Korean Government. Hint: it’s because the corrupt U.S. Government pays the S. Korean Puppet Government to pretend to like us.

Michael Reagan, ‘christian’ adherent of Sha’aria.

Specifically women’s clothing. Yes, dear readers, Right Wingnut Trolls have crawled out of their nests to condemn women who wear pants. Or dresses that aren’t “conservative” enough. They have women evicted from airplanes for wearing slacks. Michael Reagan said that women who wear make-up and try to look attractive JUST LIKE THEIR MALE COUNTERPARTS, like, say, Bill O’Reilly who is kind of a toad right from the start.. and in defense of Mr O’Reilly. Said that women in say, television broadcasting, that’s the ticket, go to work not for purposes of such mundane blasè stuff like, paying the rent, feeding herself and family, maybe have nice things instead of wearing rags or whatever. No, Mr Reagan sets us straight on that. Women actually working are doing it to entice their bosses. That’s the rapists’ favorite excuse for their behavior. I had a neighbor in Ft Worth long ago, Mrs. Stark. 97 years old. One day somebody broke into her home, beat her face in with a hammer and then raped her. She died a few days later. She was cranky, yes, heavily into the mores of society when she came of age in 1900. We had a really stupid bassett hound, who would howl a lot (moral of that: Hounds don’t fit in with city life) and would dig under the fence to visit the other yards in the neighborhood, and leave her poops and peeps on Other People’s Lawns. Mrs Stark, a retired teacher, would get dressed in Sunday-go-to-meeting clothes, write us a letter of complaint and walk right past our house to get to the mail collection box two blocks away to mail it to us.  Can any of these “conservatives” actually match that? Why, Hell no. They would rather put a label of Whore on any woman who dares to be brutally assaulted, and that’s what rape is, an act of violence… interchangeably, and go to work with Mr Reagan and his comrade-in-crime Bill O’Reilly. Or live in her home at the age of 97.

According to ACLU, sanctions on Sanctuary cites denied, Sanctimonious Right Wing Whining

Come the Heaven on… the loudest animated sphincters flapping their yaps against Sanctuary Cities are supposedly Christian and Jewish. Who play the Bible card in every debate. George W. Stupid did that shit. Did we ever get to conquer Iraq and Iran and Afghanistan like he supposedly was commanded by God to do? No, we did not. He himself didn’t do a damn thing besides barking orders and trying to look like a warrior. Just like Trump. But here’s the thing, and apparently nobody on the Right Fringe has noticed, Sanctuary Cities is a Biblical law. I mean, these self styled “tough guys” use the Old Testament to justify killing, torture, and robbing widows and orphans, and never once speak of the laws of Mercy. If any of you feeble minded souls who I am supposed to comfort, (St Paul, look it up)you’ll have to wait your turn. It’s a matter of priority. Gee, say I, what should I do today, console the killers and torturers and those who rob widows and orphans, tell them “Good Boy!” etcetera or do I just try to keep them from murder, torture and robbery? Hmmmm… it might take me a long time to deci…. oops I’ve decided. Grow up, and start taking the responsibility for the consequences of wars YOU started.

Gorsuch made his first hearing… to KILL human beings

Just like every Judge, Cop and Prosecutor in the world, he gets sexually aroused by death and pain. It’s the real reason any of them become PIGS in the first place. I bet the majority judges jacked each other off and they’ll do it again when they watch the executions. They’ll probably bring in their children and grandchildren to watch. Just like the deputies at CJC and other local prisons do when they beat people to death, they take videos of it so they can enjoy it again and again. Maybe they bring in their moms and do them while watching the videos. Sick sadistic scum. And their nasty little piglets too.

Who needs water? We can drink oil!

So Energy Transfer Partners has a little trouble. Millions of gallons of petroleum and petroleum products flowing into the rivers… Damn, who could predict such an event?

Why golfers wear goofy clothes and other nonsense

They wear gaudy and mismatched clothes so you can easily find their bodies after a lightning strike. The largest occurrence of lightning deaths are on golf courses, yet every set of clubs contains an umbrella. That makes a whole lot of sense, doesn’t it? Stand out in a thunderstorm with a metal rod in your hands? This has nothing to do with the Masters and Colonial golf extravaganzas which I think are soon to be, and if they aren’t then who cares anyway. But the God-awful stupid looking clothes, I call them Dork Suits, are done in screaming colors and patterns and they’re not found in nature. Perfect for spotting the bodies of dead rich idiots before they start to rot, and you wouldn’t want that to happen, right? But this isn’t about Golf, really. Millionaires running around on grassy fields chasing each others’ balls, like every pro sport, BORING. Then there’s the continual freak show in Washing Tundy Sea, just as stupid but this could affect your life, maybe even end it. Jefferson Sessions has once more done a ventriloquist act where his ass actually spoke, this time saying something really stupid about how does a Judge on a “island in the middle of the pacific” could hold up his precious fascist Travel Ban for racial and religious harassment. The island being a U.S. state made up of islands, similar to Alabama in conglomerate size and the methods of taking the lands from Native people. It’s called Hawaii. His mastery of geography is surpassed only by his mastery of socially acceptable behavior. He can’t, simply, for the life of him, figure out why it’s not legal to hang people without a trial based on the people being lynched, like those denied visas, simply because they are of a different skin tone or religious persuasion. Thus is the Cult of the Donald. If it were only one stupid redneck animated penis, it would be unbearable. But there’s more. oh God there’s more. Their whole Cult is chock full of stupid and/or purely evil persons.

AARP: George W Bush Celebrates “our” Vets.

Where to begin? First, I’m not theirs, or yours, or his. Especially when the possessive “his” is G W. There’s the bit about him getting a Champagne Duty Station in Texas while hundreds of thousands of Real Americans were drafted, with no chance of doing their time in the National Guard, and still he deserted his station. And for some reason his discharge papers say “honorable”. Back again. I had to scream for a minute or two. Then there’s the not one but TWO Sovereign Nations attacked and partially conquered, in defiance of the wording of his own daddy’s Bush Doctrine. it’s ok, Daddy did the same shit. The literally countless dead from that, hell, for a while we weren’t given even a close estimate of how many U.S. military were killed and wounded. The number is still blurred by Agent Orange and Depleted Uranium, and asbestos, bet he would, if he somehow became literate, he would be angry that somebody remembers that asbestos.. Here’s my deal, everybody who makes money from wars foreign or domestic (The Standing Rock tribe are considered “U.S. Domestic” when the thieves in Washing Tundy Sea find it convenient, but the tribes are sovereign) or who promotes war should be compelled to buy his own equipment and pay for his own support system and take his happy ass over to the countries he demands be bombed. No backup or subsidies except from their comrades. Wounded Warrior Project? Force Bush and his family, Cheney, the Kochs, Trump, Romney, to pay the entire bank accounts of them and their families, it’s blood money, make the ones who took the blood pay for it. And assume that any ‘enemy’ persons should be counted as Civilians because the Bush-Romney’s of the world and our little corner thereof, simply lied about the numbers of the ‘enemy’ who were killed, wounded or fought against the invaders. Take care of vets instead of praising us. And the easiest way to do that is to refrain from starting new wars and generating new Vets.

There was on the front page, top of the page, in the Gag-zette

A picture of a blackhawk helicopter taking off. What about just take a picture of a bus pulling off from the curb or somebody crossing a street? This is of course the Gag-zette whose management went bankrupt but the Independent, a free paper made a profit, consistently. Imagine, a publication given away free makes more money than a for-pay rag.

Pence says patience is up with N. Korea

Pence isn’t going to attack anybody.. That’s for Peasants in the working class. The Leisure Class like Pence and Trump never go to war. So far North Korean government hasn’t done anything that was already done by the Elitist U.S. Government including the Pentagon. Mike Punkce and Donald Chump will stand up proudly, in Washington, and boast of what They Did. They’ll pick a fight for other people to finish, just like always.

No shrill screams to deport White Conservatives after another shooting? How could that be?

The right wingnuts are already getting uppity about the alleged “persecution” of white conservatives. They got that from their …president… who has a tantrum every time anybody doesn’t bow and worship him. A sheriff in Ohio has suggested using the MOAB to kill drug “offenders”.  Like Pete Coors, the single largest drug profiteer in the world. Alcohol is a drug, and deadly. REAL deadly. The sheriff probably had a bottle of the the Devil’s Koolaid in his trotter. For those not familiar with animal husbandry, a pig’s hoof is called a trotter. Damn, I hate having to explain a joke. But the hypocrisy rises relative to the hypocrite’s level of racism and self righteousness.

Trump says he can’t be sued for inciting violence

Maybe, but he could be prosecuted as an accomplice in every anti-american attack he incited. Like if the  Kansas Attorney General would grow a conscience and instead of prosecuting teachers for saying the world is older than 6000 years, prosecute Trump in the killing of Srinivas Kuchibhotla and assault w/ deadly weapon w/ serious bodily injury against Alok Madasani and Ian Grillot. He incited it, he needs to be a man for the first time in his life and face the strongest and harshest punishment as prescribed by Kansas statutes. Fair is fair, he still bitches about the Central Park 5 aren’t rotting in jail for a crime they didn’t commit. And his support for New York prosecutions for misdemeanors like begging, stealing bread and sleeping under bridges. The statute used is called “broken windows” and demands the highest level of punishment. He cheered it when it was poor people being prosecuted, the Elitist Bitch and the Elitist bitches in the NYPD and the prosecutors, also Elitist Bitches are still at it… except when a racist ex-GI stabbed to death a homeless man in NYC, Timothy Caughman. Mayor Bill de Blasio said the killing is a hate crime, is racism, but only the Fascist punk who drew the sword is being prosecuted. Why is that? Trump had his hand in that too. He encourages Racist assaults. The way his idiot Cult Disciples interpret his call to commit violence is the Voice of God commanding them to do it.  But the cops, judges and prosecutors, all of them Pig Assholes, they’re not prosecuting the vicious accomplice to MURDER and he is left free. Why not, Piggies? Too busy licking Trumps shoes?

Yahoo News comments about Racist pending attack on N. Korea

Which they deny is racist or fascist of course of course. Like Mr Ed’s last words were famously “a corpse is a corpse, of course of course” at the risk of me beating a dead horse. I responded to a couple of really misguided posts yesterday, one of which I had to sleep on it before further evaluation. Some dumb arse who supports bombing Pyongyan said it was necessary to do so because Kim is quote “a fat slant-eyed gook”. Of course that would also refer to any of Trumps foes or friends in the region as well. And I know from experience that the most arrogant bigoted Fascists, the ones who believe that North Korea needs to be “put in their place” actually believe that Asians should bow down to il Douche Trump the same way as the mentally and morally impaired Right WingNuts like the Klan and anybody else who was stupid enough to support or vote for him. Fortunately, and I never get tired of pointing it out, they’re a minority. And while and at the same time in a repetitively redundant kind of way, they insist they’re NOT religious, racial and politically racist Boitches who are too cowardly to fight their own battles and too stupid to find the recruiting office

Copelands Trump the Antichrist

Mayhaps that’s misleading. Kenneth and Gloria Copeland don’t say that Trump is antichrist. In fact they said any Christians who don’t support Trump are antichrist.  Amazingly, the Satanists have their own divisions, maybe not as stark as the Southern Baptists vs. The Catholic Mainstream vs. Opus Dei vs. LDS, but the ones I encountered on 6 June 1986 laid it out the same as the Copelands, only from a different perspective. It was on a Friday, there was a full Moon and Reagan was acting the ass, as usual, and I went to a party to see if I could score some acid. Which I did not accomplish. The party goers were actually having a religious event. By the way, June 6th of 86 was interpreted as 6-6-6. They had been doing a bunch of acid for a couple of weeks. Not anything new. To bring in a spoiler alert, Trump is said BY HIS SUPPORTERS to recreate the political IMAGE of Reagan. That’s Important and I’ll tell you why. Like Reagan, he boasts of having control of “the Mightiest military in history”, he believes himself to be therefore Annointed by God to rule the entire world (Just ask the Copelands, they performed the ceremony) and thinks of himself as invincible.

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.
