Best Presidental Quote EVER

Better than Nixon saying (as Vice President) "you won't have Dick Nixon around anymore" Of course he lied. Later he said "I am not a crook!" Again, he perjured. 53251

Territorial Manifest Destiny Triumphalism strikes yet again.

Celebrating for Territory Days, (courtesy of the free hand-out paper that's everywhere on the West Side) the "Heroic" Colonel Chivington, the one who led the Babykilling attempted genocide at Sand Creek. How earlier at Glorieta he had Defeated General Silsby (Texas Militia) and how those bad ol' Arapaho and Cheyenne bottling off the trails in and out of Denver... and contentedly mooing about how the Utes, on the other hand, being "good Indians" and not joining the Resistance to their Genocidal occupation and robbery. Yeah, pat old Chief Ouray on his long gone head and tell him what good "boy" he was. 24350

Give the Black Hills back to the Lakota

Close down the strip-mine gold operation in Deadwood, stop maintaining the blasphemous idols carved onto Mount Rushmore, stop maintaining the Custer National Monument, let them rot into the Earth. They poison the very heart of the Earth Mother, Wakan Tonka. That means not "Great Spirit" like it's usually translated, but The Great Buffalo. The Lakota and other "sioux" tribes, and other Northern Plains tribes hold the Black Hills to be exactly that Heart. It's said that from satellite images the Black Hills look like a massive bison heart. That might be a Rorshacht test, an inkblot or a cloud that you can project onto, or a seance where the medium will tell you, or rather, you'll tell him/her exactly what you wanted to hear. Maybe, but it sure does look like a bison heart. Mount Rushmore and the Gold and now, coal mining operations are literally carving the still beating heart of the Earth. The Earth screams at us to stop, but the Big Money men don't listen. 23636

Hubris, thy name is Gazette

Maybe it's because the American-born Yemeni cleric Anwar al-Awlaki is in fact born American, but his statement that there should be Retaliatory killings of American Civilians fits so very well with the American killings of Afghan, Pakistani, VietNamese, Korean, ... Mexican, Native American, Guatemalan, Chilean, Bolivian, Colombian, Grenadan, Salvadoran, Chinese, Iraqi, Honduran, Libyan, Venezuelan, Nicaraguan, just really any-old-an civilians whose governments happened to stand in the way of U.S. Corporate Interests. But what makes the Colorado Springs Gag-Zette stand out is their work-up for this weekend, with the celebration of Territory Days, where they'll be celebrating the exploits of such Baby-killing anti-civilian warriors as Kit Carson, Chivington and General Palmer. What FUN that is! 17349
