So, sometimes I get the response that Martin wasn’t a “saint”, works for me anyway, I ain’t a saint either. Never met one. What he did accomplish was to lead people to at least think about a lot of very important concepts. Like, Jesus most likely would not like the notion of killing, robbing, exploiting, enslaving, and other hateful activities against other people. People who were very young or not born when Brother Martin was slaughtered, supposedly by an independent person acting alone… you might not recall clearly a time when a person of color could be lynched for not getting off the sidewalk fast enough to avoid inconveniencing the so-called Master Race dude who was so afraid of dark people he, she or they would have a panic attack just because a dark person was in his immediate vicinity. Martin was a little more polite than myself when faced with such idiocy. My response is to tell those haters, which is a synonym for Persons Projecting Their Fears And Insecurity upon other people… is to tell them bluntly that if they were so afraid of non-Anglo/Northern European persons not being inferior to them, why the hell did they come over to a whole two continents, had to cross an ocean to get here, where the people who who were here thousands of years just happen to be generally darker than the Anglo types. And then forced immigration of people from yet another continent in order to do the hard work involved in building the Shining City On A Hill, and that’s a description much older than Reagan, think like 300 years…
They locked down the entire city of Boston. They identified two brothers who were Muslim as the bombers. One supposedly was shot to pieces but miraculously resurrected for the Show Trial. Much like the raid on the bin Laden compound, the secret burial, we just have to accept the word of the SEAL team. Except the FBI not long beforehand had posted a Most Wanted “age progression” picture which was actually the real face of a Spanish member of parliament. Wonder if they did the same thing with British MPs, eh? But the Fibbers said, once exposed, that they had no intelligence whatsoever that Usama was still alive, no verified sightings, no actual broadcasts, nothing, since 2002. So, when did they stop or start lying? Given that, how would we know that the two suspects in the Marathon Bombing were actually real? They lie to us, constantly, boast that they’ll lie to us at any time and there won’t be any evidence to prove or disprove any of it. It’s the MiniTru, Ministry of Truth from Nineteen Eighty-four. The very next week the Boston and Fibber Pigs were given a cloak for their apparent evildoing by a refinery/fertilizer company explosion in West, Texas which killed MURDERED 15 workers, as admitted by the corporate asswipes who actually recreated (on a smaller scale) another similar (same chemical) explosion in 1947 when a whole shipload of it burned and exploded in Texas City. The ammonia nitrate fertilizer which Christian terrorist McVeigh might not have actually done in Oklahoma City, same stuff.
The Trumpistas are getting a little bit pissy about their idol being mocked. There’s a fellow named Craig who has a List, pretty neat stuff but on the Free Speech page (Rants and Raves) any cellar-dweller punk can take down what’s been written. Of course, the author is free to re-submit the same thing and so might anybody who agrees with him/her. So once again a post about Mr Trump and his mindless minions claiming that a person (Republican but still a person) had an anti-Trump sign at a Trumpista Rally three days before the botched election, was somehow an assassination attempt…. Got flagged. And replaced with the following
Ok, so the punk bastard is, well, a punk bastard. yawn. He rips off people including foreign dignitaries (and no, the law is quite plain on this, you can’t steal or kill people just because you personally don’t like them), urges the lynching of people who have both served long prison time and got PROVEN NOT GUILTY, promises racially and religiously slanted deportations, imprisonments, etc… (crickets chirping, general bored silence) but his general asshole-ishness isn’t what is now controversial. He HIRED a couple of hookers to entertain him with water sports. allegedly …If you’re not really conscious of that term, get a computer you don’t care very much about and google it. After which you’ll have to wipe the drive,re-install your OS and even then you might get a bunch of Porn Spam Flooding. But come on, man, promoting murder and actually participating in fraud (in amounts with more zeroes after the first digit than my entire extended family have had in two years of wages), that ought to be more important indicators of his (for want of a better word) character than whatever gets his pathetic little teenie weenie stiff. And there’s plenty to suggest he has such a complex, like he’s always doing stuff like having other people build Towers and name them after him, a Huge Wall, etc etc… and hey, being a possessor of a baby penis isn’t enough to disqualify him from public office. … assuming it’s actually his and not …. well, you know… Sorry about that, I’ve known a few really lunatic acquaintances …
On a National Geographic Channel (bought up by FOX) episode about Area 51, one of the explanations of it’s super secret activities is that they (the Air Farts and the CIA.) tested Stealth aircraft starting with the U2 and testing maneuvers using purloined Soviet airplanes, and that it “saved countless lives in VietNam”. I call bullshit. The GI Resistance Movement saved a lot of lives by forcing the Mighty Corporate Government to (at least temporarily) negotiate with soldiers as Humans instead of Disposable Conscript Slave-Warrior Minions. All the maneuvers and carpet bombing and surveillance and intelligence gathering techniques prolonged the war, killing more GIs, not saving any lives, fighting for “freedom” and all the other John Wayne jingoistic imperial lies. VietNam didn’t start the literally God-Damned war. The power structure of the US so called Democracy did. The Empire Strikes First. By prolonging the war they, the Shadow Government in all its Inglorious Self-righteous actions killed 50,000 GIs just in that one conflict. And set the stage for every war since. And before, the US was set up as part of an invasive foreign empire which has murdered more Americans than all the nations who “we” attacked combined. The shit about Defending America, no, it wasn’t. Liberating America, no, it wasn’t. And then there are the people in the attacked nations. The civilians slaughtered by aerial bombardment, and the Native civilians who were targeted, just like the people of Dresden or Hiroshima or Hanoi or Baghdad in the aforementioned War On Everybody who dared to refuse to bow the knee before the Emperor du Jour. It adds up. Some of the estimates, 4 Million civilian casualties.1 1/2 Million Military casualties. That’s both sides. Or “all sides” . That’s a telling statistic. Three times as many civilian casualties than military. Munch on that. And if “we’ were fighting for freedom, and lost…. do your own math
Cognition. Chanting. Changing cognition using repetitive use of words. The title I pulled from one of those damned Supermarket Tabloid headlines about Alan Thicke. It’s a cheap way to express opinions which are actually accusations, yes? Partly. The publishers of the Stupid News publications are by and large degree holders, Liberal Arts for certain. That doesn’t have any connection to the term Politically Liberal. It means they study an array of disciplines as needed for their goals. In this instance, getting people attuned to believe anything they are told. Chanting the words aloud, or copying them verbatim, each repetition validates the former uses of that fact or factoid, the later doesn’t actually depend on fact any more than Liberal Arts would depend on Liberal Politics. Or the Defense Department having any clear and proven ties to actually defense. Like in the Orwellian dystopia Nineteen Eighty Four and the Animal Farm companion, NewSpeak, DoubleSpeak and DuckSpeak with the Ministry of Truth. AND the Capitalist Dystopia Brave New World by Aldous Huxley. Nuances in language can be used to mean the exact opposite of the original thought. If you use phonemes, homonyms, and really bad puns if done skillfully (like you might learn at a Creative Writing course of study) Repetition can be both perceptual and expressive, say, for instance, singing songs containing the conditioning the Big Pigs want you to believe. Or simply accept, consciously believing that its hu-wi, which is Cherokee for Hooey. And just subtly train your sub or unconscious mind to accept as harmless and having no effect.
Right makes might, not the other way around. It’s a milestone for a civilization becoming an empire, when the Emperor declares that having a large, expensive military at his enforcers makes him the rightful king of all the world. Both of the Bushes said it, as did Nixon and Reagan and Obama. It’s a falsehood which takes on a persona and life of it’s own. The seeds of the destruction of an empire are there at it’s birth.
Like Taylor or Tyler or Connor, just seems “trendy”, yes? Some of it comes off as major league cool and others just lame. and annoying. And it’s mostly an english language type device. Catholic kids have it all the way, until 1966 it was pretty much mandatory to name somebody first with the name of a Saint. In case you’re wondering why there are so many catholic women named Mary or Elizabeth (in Spanish that would be Maria and Isabel) reflects that the Church didn’t canonize as many women and a lot of them were born Catholic, so you wind up with (over many centuries) a large pool of people with a comparatively small pool of names. Then their familiar names, so you get a lot of people named for instance Maria Elena or Mary Elizabeth. Some others are Concepcion, events in the life of Jesus. There’s one person at least whose Saint Name was Circumcision A lot of my Mexican and Texas-born friends have sisters in the family who are separated by their familiar names. Mary Elena, Maria Dolores, Mary Magdelana. The guy most Texans refer to as General Santa Anna, that was his mother’s surname. He was Antonio Jose y Maria LOPEZ de Santa Ana. You get recognition of both sides of the family that way, instead of Mom losing her heritage just by marrying Dad.
Or just read it, since it’s text that’s probably the best way… Anyway, you don’t need to kiss the ass of the Capitalist Establishment which sent you to “liberate” people who just happened to have oil and other strategic minerals, fishing rights, for instance, ports-of-call, striking range to Other Targets that can be reached by drones, other missiles and light aircraft (as opposed to a B52 or ICBM coming over the pole). You don’t have to pretend for THEM anymore, you’re no longer under command, you can think and speak. You don’t have to tell people that you were fighting for our freedom. Freedom to Obey? Freedom to believe all the bullshit we’re told? Demand that the top 5% which would take in every punk in the Military Industrial Complex especially the Petroleum and other mineral extraction industries… demand that They provide all your health expenses. They’re the only ones who benefited by the Invasion and Occupation of VietRaqIstan which we know is also at the root of the Libyan and Syrian conflicts (you gotta love that term right? It skates the Pentagon and their Masters clean out from under the Geneva and Hague Conventions and other treaties entered into by the US government and ratified by congress, thus having the same weight of law as the articles of the Constitution according to articles 4 and 6 because it doesn’t make use of the word “war”.)
From an Air Force recruiters commercial, and it shows the raw futility of going into military bondage with some starry eyed ideas about what you want to accomplish. Because Military Organizations don’t give a fig about anything other than killing. It’s what they do. The commercial had a drone pilot and an armorer (that’s the title) who was cleaning a Vulcan motorized Gatling gun. Sure that’s going to liberate anybody. The “I wanted to touch the sky” is just an admission that the Air Force believe they’re the owners of the sky.
Although DAPL and their parent company Energy Transfer Partners still insist they’ll defy the Army Corps of Engineers who pulled their permit. There’s money, oh yes, lots of that and the closely tied Political Power Play. This is the first major defeat of the incoming Trump administration. They’re not taking it lightly.
So there’s a headline by a mainstream outlet that Billdo is upset that “the left” is eroding White Privilege. So, this is news? The punk ALWAYS spouts Aryan propaganda. He’s perhaps the smartest man on the Far Right Lunatic Fringe. OK not really. They don’t have very many intellectually evolved people.But he’s paid to present to Other Very Frightened White Males who are angry that other people, especially those with darker skin, don’t acknowledge their delusional fantasies of Supremacy. Making a headline out him saying something racist and just plain stupid is like having a reporter going around town recording farts. In short pointless. I know Billdo doesn’t listen to opposing voices, that’s another given. Undermining White Privilege or “authority” is a common complaint among the Klan. Because they’ve lived all their lives in fear of not being in charge. The ones to whom Billdo preaches his hate speech would be just as powerless and feeling somehow victimized, even if every government and social[ office was given to a White Male. They would still be nothing ass nobodies and still afraid. It’s why they have organizations like the Klan and the Heritage Foundation. They go to their meetings and get told that they are indeed powerful, and the rest of the world bows before them. Pure bullshit. And all their affirmations of superiority are empty. They obviously don’t believe them and Show It By Having To Repeat The Affirmations. Or have Bill O,Really? speak the affirmations to their longing ears. Very sad. Oh Well.
He gets the most prestigious political office in America and still bitches because some of us don’t actually worship him as the Chosen One. How many, you may ask. Well, I might answer, just off the top of my head and without putting the total to a calculator… the point spread between him and her on election day, 95% voted for either/or. Much of that, so it seems, and there won’t be any real statistic on it, although the figure usually is counted as 30% for each candidate, was actually a protest vote against the other. Because 5% of other voters had formally said “none of the above” although votes for the Greens are very important. At the very least they tell the BigPigs that they’re not as in control as they thought. There was a 1% difference between the Donald and the Hillary, in her favor. With the count, actual, was 3 million more for her. Which only counts for this calculation.
If the count is accurate, still not decided, then they were really less than a percentage point.
on account of it being the solstice. There’s bound to be one local. It is, how you say in zee eenglish, a very important big deal. There’s a paucity of listings on the internet, so I have to keep looking through every resource I have or can create. The ceremonies I know about involve the Iron Box and that’s out of the picture for me. There’s bound to be some at Standing Rock. But I don’t think I can make it there. So I have to keep combing for one really nearby. I could easily build an imnipi but it would be awful lonely and there’s a large communal structure of people who are the big part. One isn’t enough.
Aside from the fact he’s one of the owners of stock of many oil companies… How much stock, you ask?
Well, me answers, he on the board of directors of several. Just another bazillionaire who never worked a day in his life. One of the major investments he has is the Energy Transfer Partners. The ones who have vowed on tuesday to keep going even without their permits, at Standing Rock. My challenge is, for the Donald and the DickBerry put their own sorry asses on the line instead of “leading from behind the lines… very very far beyond the line. There’s a few people from Colorado Springs, professional trolls or maybe just amateurs, who have been stinking up the blogosphere with their racist bigotry and especially in support of the DAPL. They apparently don’t have jobs or social lives, maybe they ought to go up there as well. Instead, they’ll do what they always do, hide behind the fence and bark at the Big Dogs as they run past…
Apparently died of alcohol poisoning from the beer he was promoting, and is replaced by another moron who is willing to kill his own brain to sell corporate beer. An old fashioned ass kicking for all involved would be in order, but the whole hog conglomerate would just go right back to the trough, poisoning people and as a bonus get the people to pay The Corporation for the privilege of being slaughtered. It wouldn’t change anything and you’d just be really tired.
A short list of commercial suggestions for Christmas. War toys. Lots of them, GI Joe, toy guns, real guns, drones, War oriented video games, movies, those that don’t involve the direct murder that is the essence of war, stuff like Bad Santa, so they basically took Santa Claus or Satans Claws, a purely idolatrous metaphoric representation and replacement for Jesus, manufactured specifically to get people to buy a whole butt-load of useless shit and have the more gullible ones believe that Santa is an ancient tradition. Which isn’t the case, the poem by a newspaper editor was planned in advance to market toys.
Because I just heard the term “meteoric rise” again.
Trump’s nominee for Secretary of something or another important bureaucracy. And supports more wars. Trump gonna stop the wars WHEN? Not our lifetime, according to their schedule. This comes at a cost. So much for Fiscal Conservatives. They must mean “conserving the truth” by hiding it away where nobody can find it.There’s a tax return preparer ad that we’ll be seeing in a couple of weeks, ‘get your billions back, america’ and last (this) year had a representation of 4 billion dollars in hundred dollar bills. As drug dealers know, you could count money easier with a scale, assuming the bills are the same denomination. 10 kilograms of $100 bills is a million dollars. The depiction of somebody in any shady business displaying a briefcase allegedly containing multiple millions is pure crap. It’s well known but it’s an easy deal if people are trusting enough to allow a movie or commercial to warp their perceptions.
Well, it could be inspiring. The gossip newspapers, I think the one which said Queen Elizabeth had given the monarchy to Kate as in “will and kate” the ones who were about to be married soon, after his daddy and step mummy almost got their collective ass hauled out of their limo… yeah… Anyway aside from Merkins being somewhat foggy on what exactly goes on in British royal bullshit… like the reigning monarch doesn’t get to name his/her replacement. Parliament does. but that’s way beside the point and when I get close to a hundred words without saying anything at all about the main theme, well, I can’t bloody well be beside a point. No, brethren and sistren, this one is about Papa Fidel.
Supposedly he, on his deathbed, confessed to killing JFK. Which has a large amount of bullshit to it. Who would be at the deathbed to hear it and why would they share such a lurid lie with a “news” paper which even birds refuse to use as a cage liner. No “?” necessary. Besides, the Dallas police establishment were and still are the biggest suspects, angry because the Yankee Liberal was pushing for Civil Rights laws. And thought Johnson wasn’t going to sign the law.
They had a headline on I believe the Enquirer, one of Mr Trumps properties, that 54 Muslim “spies” were identified working at the CIA. Imagine that, the CIA has a lot of operations in the Muslim parts of the world, why wouldn’t they have Muslim employees or contractors? (with no notation of their nationalities, and it would be amazing if a country who is under the Imperial Yoke didn’t have some CIA recruitment among the population… and there’s malcontents in every group, they taught me that in the ROTC and later in the Air Farts.) Since the CIA has a security curtain on the Freedom of Information Act, something about national insecurity… we don’t have an accurate count of how many people are employed by the CIA but I would start my estimate at around a very large number, one that would swallow up the 54 Muslim “spies” working there. And “there” covers a ridiculously big area. Remember, the Empire feels they have the right to run every country in the world for their profit margin. O, I was supposed to say “for the safety of America” or some other stupid shit. That leads to another freaky little fact…
Where the Hell did they get that information and if it’s classified (want to find out? Call the CIA and ask them…) AND published in a large birdcage liner owned by the Incoming President who, by the way, has exactly NO political power yet… then somebody is involved in a little bit of treason, yes?
And all employees at the CIA could be classified as Spies. And their names and any other personal identifiers would be a different definition of classified.
I don’t think he’s doing it for any humanitarian or humane or even human reasons, but he’s first sold his huge amount of stock in the DAPL parent company, on Saturday, according to Yahoo news. AND Immigration with the DACA amnesty which the racist part of his agenda needed really badly. This afternoon. Mayhaps the ESPECIALLY the Standing Rock support showed just what kind of a battle he’s going to have on each of his First 100 Days Commandments. Hey, he published that shit with a sneer about “what are you going to do to stop it, Huh?” Well, this is how it’s happening. His pet Klansmen in NC backed their collective ass down with a quickness. Klavalkade? What Klavalkade? We don’t know nothing about no Klan parade… (especially after they showed up for their shit spectacle and there were about ten times as many opponents already there.)
Mass roundups of people already vetted they’re not criminals, and trust me on this, La Migra are VERY diligent in doing harm or otherwise displaying their power trip against any especially non-white immigrants. La Migra have a great deal of hatred for immigrants and they make no excuses. Shoot first and ask questions later? Hell to the no. They burn you down and there’s no investigation.
At the time the US was unofficially bombing the crap out of Empire of Japan troops and facilities under the false flag of a “mercenary volunteer air force” called the Flying Tigers. It’s the same agreement, different empire, the Italian-Spanish-Decommissioned Luftwaffe “volunteer” air force bombing the living dogshit out of places like Guernica and Ethiopia. The Japanese were scavenging the last remnants of the Chinese Empire, so were the British Empire and the US was officially neutral.
The German Navy had recently sank the USS Reuben James right off the coast of New Jersey, and the US Merchant Marine were taking many such hits all over the globe. But “we” were “neutral”. Hawaii had been claimed by the United States Empire in a rigged “revolution” against the legitimate government of Hawaii, actually a monarchy but, hey, it was THE MONARCHY OF THE PEOPLE OF HAWAII. The sugar and pineapple plantation merchants, Wall Street operating in a land they didn’t actually own, and the corporate sucks didn’t want to pay the taxes of that Foreign State. Just like the “liberation” of Panama from Colombia and Cuba and Puerto Rico and The Filipinos from Spain. Rigged coups disguised as the U.S. Benevolent Big Brother “protecting” the people of Hawaii and Pananama etc against “tyranny”.
The U.S. has been in that business since before there was a united states. Tennessee, the bad ol’ Natives like the Cherokee were taking a stand against Illegal Aliens like Daniel Boone and David Crockett’s family. They just up and decided they would break the “rebellious” Indians and their “silly ass treaties”. Yeah, Manifest Destiny, baby! With that they baptized their Imperialism, blame it all on God. And may God help us, They’re Still Doing The Exact Same Thing.
In a blinding flash of Corporate hubris, The Stated Reason For The Police Assaults against the Medicine Wheel gathering has been really two-faced, that they’re afraid for the health of the People in the cold and lack of sanitation facilities, while denying the People the water, housing and sanitation supplies THE PEOPLE PAID to have delivered, and spraying them with pepper-spray laced water cannons, blocking the roads for the people injured by the Pigs, unless they’re prisoners, and even then they’re denied adequate treatment… AND from the other side of their lying collective mouth, they say the PIGS are under attack. And, here’s the fun part… the statistics of injuries or other medical conditions are sealed. How HIPPA-critical. The PIGS accuse the Protectors of assaulting the PIGS but refuse Habeas Corpus. No evidence. Evidence is classified. The PIGS confiscate cameras and sound recording gear and Trump up charges of inciting to riot, trespassing etc, and blow a woman’s arm almost off. I still have to check the latest report on that. DAPL officials are screeching that it’s a political stunt by Obama that he Fucking Finally called off the National Guard.
They were celebrating the minority vote count “victory mandate” for Trump to Whiten America. Meanwhile Trump supporters including some of his potential cabinet have called for a law criminalizing anti-trump demonstrations. A statute like that would make it a felony to say or write anything against Der Fuhrer. Some skinhead pinhead kept harassing me for criticizing Trump’s relationship to the Klan and Skinheads who represent on Stormfront. Big woop-di-diddly-doo. Just another punk wannabee-terrorist.
Actually, the Klan is the most prolific Terrorist group in America, especially as they were the Confederacy, and one of their organizers, the one who said “save your Confederate money, the (white part of the)South will rise again!”, War Criminal Nathan Bedford-Forrest, especially…
