This repulsion driven resurgence of civic engagement is so 2002, sorry.

If we can credit the proto simian president George W. Bush with one good thing, his mediocrity did re-engage the electorate. Not enough of it, nor with satisfactory haste, but eventually Bush's misdeeds repulsed enough Americans to elect the first black president. They hoped he would jail the Bush cabal and restore peace, but that didn't happen. Instead the Bush wars carried on and Barack Obama started his own, also redoubling attacks on the American people, the middle class, immigrants, domestic jobs, Main Street, the environment, and paradoxically, the lives of black men. Equality, justice, civil society, continued to be degraded. The wave of youthful activists who saw their black Abraham Lincoln unmask himself to be a Herbert Hoover, disengaged from politics in disgust. While the widespread revulsion to Donald Trump appears to surpass record tolerance levels, in reality, the alarm and incredulity are not unfamiliar. Once again public despair is being channeled toward the voting booth, as if elections, and midterms, and the same old candidates, and the same stump speeches, will finally yield deliverance. We can hope that we're quicker studies this time round, prepared to give Donald the boot after just one term, but in truth, that was the plan with Dubya. It seemed so inconceivable that the Trumpian Bush could win a second term, that when he did, Americans felt they owed the world an apology for the error. Remember the 2004 SORRY EVERYBODY campaign? That election's democratic challenger turned out to be a ringer, which exasperated voters who were certain that anybody-but-Bush was in the bag. Midterm elections, whether they succeeded in sweeping Congress or not, provided negligible representative fortification against corporate predation. Not 2002, 2006, 2010, nor 2014. So why is the delusion so persistent? This time round, I dare not be such a killjoy to suggest Trump will not be stymied in 2018 or dislodged in 2020, but I can't see a people friendlier legislature nor any presidential replacement on the horizon that won't capitulate like John Kerry. This weekend's women's marches and protest signs were cathartic and inspiring, and the vigor always feels promising, but People, we're following the same piper! Throw the bastards out, etc! Si Se Puede! Trump Bush!

Five former leaders of the free world say YOU should pay for disaster relief

THAT'S RIGHT. Five US ex-presidents, so-called most powerful men in the world, who each did their most to expropriate the public wealth for the super rich, who denied you healthcare, job security, infrastructure, a clean environment, even peace, every last POTUS son of a bitch, now think the rescue of America's refinery capitol should be at your expense. Never mind that your taxes will already pay to rebuild Houston. These still-shilling salesmen-in-chief want whatever extra they can squeeze out of the American little person in the name of Christian Charity.

Dubya Bush sings The Battle Hymn of the Republic like he’s dancing on John Brown’s grave.

"He captured Harper's Ferry with his nineteen men so true. He frightened old Virginia till she trembled through and through. They hung him for a traitor, they themselves the traitor crew. But his soul goes marching on! -- Glory, glory, hallelujah...   It wasn't the Lord who trampled out slavery. It was abolitionist John Brown. The song which roused Union forces as they marched in the Civil War was JOHN BROWN'S BODY. The lyrics were retooled by Julia Ward Howe as "Mine eyes have seen the glory", rededicated to God, because Osawatomie John Brown was a domestic terrorist don't you know. Former president George W. Bush may have been drunk as he danced on the somber occasion of the memorial to the Dallas police killed by modern avenger Micah Johnson. But Dubya, alone among the traitor crew, let us see the true spirit of mockery that Howe's makeover propaganda represents. Servicemen gave their lives for an honorable cause while their rulers converted their anthem, an appreciation for a true moral example, into praise for entrenched higher authority. Today our leaders let fellow unrepentant war criminals bite their thumbs at us fools. The old abolitionist's unquenched passion should haunt us still, if we weren't robbed of his memory: "John Brown's body lies a-mouldering in his grave--" John Brown's body lies a-mouldering in his grave. John Brown's body lies a-mouldering in his grave. John Brown's body lies a-mouldering in his grave. His soul goes marching on! Those are the Goddamn lyrics.

Ask the candidates: who, as president, vows to jail Obama, Clinton and Bush?

If Americans really want to differentiate which presidential candidate represents change, a good question would be, which will prosecute America's celebrity war criminals? Who, among them, will jail past leaders guilty of crimes against humanity? Obama 2008 didn't do it. President Obama didn't even close Guantanamo, end torture, or disarm drones. By failing to curb Pax America's wars of aggression, Obama too should now stand in the docket. Wasn't it hoped, as Bush and Cheney helivac'd from the White House, that Obama's "change" meant calling that chopper back for a return to accountability? At minimum, superficially? Justice didn't happen, Obama didn't want to look back, and the villains remain to foul the political discourse as foils to perpetuate high crimes and to normalize the forgiving of greater trespasses. Is American exceptionalism fathomless? ISIS hasn't grown out of the terrible twos yet already John Kerry wants to charge it with genocide; not to haul ISIS perps before the Hague --extrajudicial assassination by drone circumvents that-- but because genocide law holds that those who do not condemn it are its accessories. How far does culpability reach among our active enablers of war crimes? It extends into our pool of candidates certainly, but how far? Does Senator Bernie Sanders, at one edge, consider himself an accessory to the crimes of past and current administrations? It's possible Sanders voted against the wars, interventions and regime changes, but will he prosecute those who did not? Donald Trump stands on the periphery as well, avaritic criminality is not alas a purview of the International Criminal Court, but he does seem an unlikely candidate for honoring the rule of law let alone conscience. Still, would it hurt to ask? An independent party candidate might have the only acceptable answer. Who, as president, will honor humanity's highest laws? Who will hold state terrorists accountable?

Inspired by Lance Armstrong confession, dope George W. Bush comes clean on Iraq WMDs

Lance Armstrong appeared on Oprah Winfrey's Confessional TV franchise to admit he doped and lied. If Oprah polled her television audience for who should be next episode's guest star, it might have to be Manti Te'o explaining that his dead fake internet girlfriend was a beard. Imagine the ratings if Oprah could book ex-dope-in-chief George W. Bush minus his minder Dick Cheney. Iraq's fake WMDs would be the least of it.

Lance Armstrong setback for Team America, retroactive, so totally unfair

You can see why Lance Armstrong fans are upset. Even President Obama is satisfied not to look back, why should the sports-doping authority? Lance Armstrong beat their drug tests fair and square, what right have they to retest his blood and urine samples, based on the probable cause of mounting witness testimonies, and now that superior tests can detect his workarounds? IF Team America ever cheated, it was fair and square. All our ducks in a row. If US proof of Saddam Hussein's Weapons of Mass Destruction turned out to be fabricated, it was fabricated to the standards required by veracity tests of the time. No fair revisiting spilt lives. If Barack Obama took the USADA's lead, he could rid American politics of all the Neocon cheats who still dominate the airwaves today. If Obama wanted to get lying, cheating, or taking unfair advantage out of the system. But breaking the rules, international law for example, the disproportionate use of force being a cherished national specialty, is the American Way.

After ten years, Bush has insight into lesson of 9/11: Evil is real. Evil and courage. Two. Two lessons of 9/11…

Did you hear what George Bush said at the dedication of the memorial to the passengers of Flight 93? Apparently he said "One of the lessons of 9/11 is that evil is real, and so is courage." Two lessons, I mean. I'm not sure I could have handled seeing a group of people not throwing their shoes at Bush as he pretended to expound on a lesson, let alone about what's real. George, the truth is, your audience obviously doesn't understand the half of this lesson, how truly evil the perpetrators possibly were, they still can't conceive it. As to courage, I don't mean to diminish the heroism of the first responders, who show tremendous bravery every day, but for the slain of September 11th, their courage was not something new. The police and firemen who rushed into the stairwells of the WTC had no inkling it was going to come down. A building like that never had before. Planes have flown into the tallest skyscrapers, flames have engulfed entire buildings, but steel structures have never fallen. So the rescuers were their usual courageous, but the only lesson of that day, was that the world around them, and its physics, would turn out to be not what it seemed. Bush was almost certainly reflecting how 9/11 schooled him on courage, a trait whose reality would have been news to him.

Spank a Vet with a warm fuzzy Attaboy

For those who think that the Peace people dishonor the veterans, think a bit on what the most prominent campaigns has to offer in the way of humiliation. One of the "new and improved" corporate motivational methods is called "peer recognition" because research showed that workers don't want to actually be, you know, adequately paid for our labor which enriches our bosses and impoverishes us. No, we want the empowerment of "recognition" for our good deeds. Say (and this happens far too often to be hypothetical) you have an innovation that saves your company many times your annual salary. What does the boss do to reward you?   First he patents your innovation and declares it corporate intellectual property, then gives you an award ceremony where he more or less pats your head and tells you "Attaboy!" which those English speakers who own dogs might recognize. There's even an award letter, usually hand-written by your supervisor, saying "Attaboy!" and sometimes a Warm Fuzzy, which is a recognition pin that looks kind of like a piece of pocket lint or a dust-bunny from under a desk. How special, right? Your peers get to recognize that your contribution made the boss wealthier and as a reward you get treated like a dog in front of God and everybody. In the Military, the ultimate enforcement arm of the Corporate Empire, you get something called a "medal" or a "service ribbon" and there's even a medal for not getting arrested for a year. Seriously. This type of manipulative behavior is as old as the idea of organized military. A pay and benefits raise would be a lot more meaningful than a piece of brass or maybe silver with a recycling value of maybe a buck. But gosh darn it, that would be Too Expensive. So the Corporates, the sole beneficiaries of Military Action, get to go even further with the "Thank A Vet" campaign, they get their publicly subsidized (corporate welfare) non-employees to do a really dangerous job, people who are being robbed of THEIR essential rights and freedoms in the name of making Americans (or at least their corporate owners) Free (to take all the resources of the subjugated nations and kill anybody who resists) tend to fight back. Throw airplanes at "our" buildings and such. Add in that the equipment the military uses, at great public expense and huge private profits to the Corporates, is usually dangerous in itself. Take Depleted Uranium, (please) which makes a steel shell more massive in less space. Those of you who understand ballistics would appreciate that and those who don't, study it. It's simple Newtonian physics. With a titanium tip and an explosive charge it can go through any armor. "Terror" groups who are targeted by, say, American or British tanks realize this and if they can obtain an intact round (one that didn't get smashed or exploded) will re-load it and send it back. The uranium, the heaviest naturally occurring element, has value especially in small pieces to be

36 Gigabucks in fraud? Dig harder or dig in another place…

Cause there's a much more massive gap between what was reported to us as the cost of the war as late as oh. let me see... Last Week, where the cost of the War on An Amorphous Emotion Peopled By Shadowy Dark Skinned People In Far Corners of The Empire was "set" at being somewhere more than a Trillion dollars.... and the amount that doesn't seem to be accounted for. Which is estimated at between 5 and 8 trillion. How does 8 Trillion anything just up and piss-a-deer? I published an analogy of what a trillion dead mosquitoes would look like in one place, it would be a hill of mosquito meat about as tall as the Capitol Dome. Perhaps one reason the money is "unaccounted" is because the accountants work for the Thieves. Such as one Richard Cheney, who recently as in a couple of days ago did another interview on NBC. Regarding him being not responsible for the massacre of the poor known as the "response to Hurricane Katrina". Irresponsible? yes. NOT responsible? Hell to the no. His company, Halliburton, from which he didn't divest at all when he became the President of Vice, took the greatest share of the funds sent into the Magic Hole Which Makes Money Disappear. Using no-bid contracts administered by... Vice President Richard Cheney. Halliburton, by the way, is a company organized strictly for theft. It's what they do and they're very good at it. I know using the word "good" while describing that particular nest of snakes (my appologies to real snakes and other reptiles) makes it Instant Oxymoron, but that's one of the gaping holes in the Modern English Language. They have sucked America dry and built themselves a private island resort off the coast of Dubai, UAE. Let's break momentarily from Trashing The Trash, in other words talking smack about the thieves, and remind our audience what the term Trillion means as opposed to Billion. When you multiply anything by a thousand, that's when the name changes. "Mil" as in million means "a thousand" and in that case means a thousand times a thousand. A Billion is a thousand times a Million. A Trillion is a 1,000 x 1,000, x 1,000 x 1,000. A thousand times a billion, A MILLION millions. Bill Gates had at one time 80 billion dollars in his personal stash, that's less than 1% of a trillion. And approximately 5 trillion is missing. The largest circulating bill in U.S. currency is the $100. Each weighs a gram. It takes ten kilograms of $100 bills to make a million dollars, and that's the smallest physical pile of currency that would possibly make a million dollars. It wouldn't be like in the movies where somebody carries a briefcase full of money and it's valued, for the sake of poetic license, as ten million bucks. Not so. Ten million would weigh about what I do, 220 pounds. You would need a suitcase so big you would have to check it at the airport, not carry on luggage,

Things to De-Celebrate this National Hate Week

Which is a smack to the back of the head to all those who told us in 1984 that the Police State setup from the BOOK of the same name couldn't possibly happen in America because it was all about Socialist Dystopia and nobody, no not ever, could set up a CAPITALIST dictatorship. God, they're stupid.   But here's what the post 9/11 "patriotism" has gotten us. Eight years of a moron for president, an evil moron but a moron. His crew of more intelligent evil people used the occasion to make it unpatriotic to question their plans to deregulate American industries. We've seen a 9/11 worth of dead Americans every single month due to denial of Health Care. We've seen pollution that al Qa'eda could only hope to inflict on any one small town, done daily and across the nation. We've seen our national surplus turned upside down, and many multiples of the amount of that surplus in debt, due to the Wars started by the aforementioned Moron in response to 9/11. The badly misnamed USA PATRIOT Act is being invoked against Julian Assange and Wikileaks in response to their telling the TRUTH about 9/11 and the aforementioned wars, the moron who started them and the morons who still follow his leadership even though it's destroyed what used to be America. Those Morons have banded together into Right Wing Terrorist Groups such as the TeaParty, Minutemen and other "patriotic" front-ends for the Ku Klux Klan. They'll be flying plenty of the Hate Flag. By Tea-Klan MORONS such as this couple who made their Wedding into a Hate-fest. Yep, that's right, they're celebrating their wedding with symbols of Starting A Racist War which killed half a million Americans in order to keep according to the 1860 census 3,950,528 Americans in perpetual bondage based on the color of their skin. To deny AMERICANS the rights to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness spoken of, ever so nobly, in a revered document written by a Slaveowner. So much for the "original intent", Jefferson spoke of Liberty in one paper then wrote whole books demonizing Black Americans and condemning them to slavery. You find that a lot in the "original intent" doctrine espoused by those who want to return America to an official slave nation. Emboldened by the level of pure ignorant and racist Hatred engendered by 9/11. So, De-Celebrate it by burning the Racist Flag. And, not just those of us who are of Darker Skin, or mixed "race". Every WHITE person in the world has a stake in this as well, a huge stake because it will only be by the WHITES rejecting the label the Racist PurkMeisters like the Tea-Klan want to place on All White People. They would have me and thee and she and he and we and everybody in the whole world believe that all white people are as stupid, ignorant and hate filled as they are. So I'm calling on the so-called "white race" to step up and redeem and reclaim the dignity

Christians versus Lyin-Heart medal

Starting with REAL Christian values, as preached by Christ.   Sojourners, whose mailing list led me here...(aside from me taking the long way home due to road work, thus stumbling on to Camp Casey) and other Christian groups, some of the names surprised me, have entered the budget battle with T.V. and radio ads, some in Boehner's home district, denouncing a budget plan which beats down the needy for the sole benefit of the Greedy... and urging the Rabid-Ass Wingnutz to actually do the works that Jesus told us.  or just quit taking His name in vain.  NOW, Cowboy!  Man up and do it! Then there's Colorado Springs "Christian" School, who gathered the richest and most vicious oppressors of the Poor, to give the "Lion Heart" medal... to a Chickenshit Chicken Hawk whose Daddy's Money kept his worthless arse out of Vietnam. Who performed Satanic rituals using the bones of an American Hero, who unlike ANY of the Bush Klan, actually DID fight for America, was a prisoner of war, died in a Military concentration camp, and Grandpa Prescott Bush and some of his fellow overly pampered buddies robbed his grave, out of U.S. Army cemetery, at the Ft. Sill, Oklahoma concentration camp. His birth-name I'm not privileged to know, none of his tribe ever told me.  He was born in what's now New Mexico, and like most Indians had a name given by the magistrates of the conquerors.  Like Russell Means, Ward Churchill, Leonard Peltier, George Guess (his Tsa-la-gi name is "Sikawi") and Jonah Brown. The man whose bones they use in their freakish Satanic rituals, died with the Spanish name Geronimo. (St. Jerome) The Colorado Springs Overly wealthy "Christian" establishment worship the cowardly, arrogant, war criminal THIEF, using an award named for yet another murdering scum war criminal "Christian", Richard Coeur de Leon. They bow down to him calling him a "Christian Warrior" although he's neither, and sacrificing their children to advance his agenda. Many, but not all, in the Jewish community are likewise bowing down to the wannabee AntiChrist. Again, I call on them, Repent, or stop using God's name in vain.  You who are Christian take His Name, in the most literal sense possible.  As Paul said, by adoption into His house, the way an adopted child takes the name of his new family... And as John the Revelator said, by marriage, the Church as Bride of Christ. You owe it to Him to bring forth works meet for Repentance. If your Right hand is busy doing evil, left hand grabbing up the money from it, your mouth boasting of the evil you do and mocking those who reproach you for it... What then do you have left to do the work of God? "Thou shalt not bear false witness" doesn't have and escape clause, like "unless you want-covet the lil wealth of another nation like Iraq, Mexico or Venezuela and need WMD type of lying excuse". And where, in "Love thy neighbor" or "Thou shalt not kill" does it say anything about killing people while robbing their country, or killing

Sarah Palin mouthing off with more racist crap

So, who is surprised by that? Anyway, she now believes that she has some kind of say over who can or cannot be a guest at the White House. This time in response to a Rapper. The AP (Arrogant Propaganda) News has it that "Obamas defending having a rapper as guest" WTF? There's not a damn thing to defend. It's THEIR freakin' house, until President Obama leaves office. Simple Sarah hasn't got a God-Damn thing to say in the matter. Hell, George Bush entertained Murdering War Criminals like Cheney and Ollie North. Reagan too. Hell, Bush even had HER arrogant racist bitch ass at the White House. And the SUBJECT? A Negro singer. Wait a minute... how is that NOT racist again? Reagan had Stevie Wonder and Ray Charles as guests. People on whom Mrs. Palin depends for politico-religious opinions, like Pat Robertson, are only slightly less Klan-like in their attitude since the 60s... That crap about the Vodun connection to the Haitian earthquake, he used to say that about Ray Charles' music. ALL Rock, Blues, Jazz, Swing... supposedly to lure White Kids into the Negro Lifestyle of drugs, wild sex... and voodoo. It's looking like the RepubliKlan Party IS going to try to win the election with only White votes. Think not? I've heard, not just in my lifetime but actually in the past decade, Rock music described as "Nigger Music". Mrs Palin didn't seem to have any objections to Pat Robertson's Racist Bitch Ass being in the White House as a guest. She really needs to get a tighter grip on reality and Obama needs to refuse to apologize or even answer to her or her Racist Freak supporters.

Bin Laden was right, but you knew this already, America is a Godless nation

Lawless and Godless. My stomach has been in a knot all day. I remember feeling this way when we executed Saddam Hussein, by all accounts a brutal despot. We tried him in a kangaroo court, without even the courage to make the audio or transcript public, because he would have ratted us out. Then we had him summarily hung. Now I've no great objection to regicide, I favor it actually when imposed by public coup. At the hands of foreign invaders it's victor's justice, and probably deliberately criminal to humiliate the conquered. Last night a US special forces hunt and kill team shot the unarmed Osama bin Laden and others, in a fire-fight whose casualty ratio was that of a firing squad. Bin Laden's body was immediately disposed the way we taught Argentine and Chilean death squads to do it, disappeared out over the sea. Gone, just like those famous shoes that offended George the Wretched Bush, vaporized in post-incident explosives tests it was said, not kept by any Princeton grad as talisman keepsakes, like for example the bones of Chief Geronimo, the famed Native American resistance leader whose grave was robbed by elder alum Prescott Bush to provide the skull and crossbones for which the secretive society was named. Oddly, the operation to assassinate bin Laden was called "GERONIMO." That, or we named the mission after an expression that means, as far as I remember, "here goes nothing!" Usually shouted as you were leaping somewhere. Regardless it's an incredibly insensitive subject to invoke as you're intending to assassinate a later era's most significant resistance leader. When we decide to take out Subcommandante Marcos, are we going to name it Operation Bin Laden? And don't pretend someone doesn't want dibs on his pipe. We're told we disposed of bin Laden's body to prevent the forces of evil, aka Islam, from creating a shrine. But are Muslims the only people who worship at a shrine? I'm inclined to believe a whole other denomination of people attribute something mythic to a hero's remains, more perhaps even than his mere followers. Now I wouldn't put it past America's spooks to wring those shoes of the sweat of the wearer who summoned the courage to have a go at Bush, which no one before or since, neither prizefighter nor pope, has dared to do. Likewise, I'd think even your average incurious scientist could get a grant to scan the heart and brain of a man worth half a billion dollars yet renounced a life of luxury to dedicate his life to fight the godless Soviet invaders, and later, the most sinister, most profane dragon which has so far destroyed or enslaved everything in its fiery wake. What distinguishes this fluke DNA and how can we eradicate its traces so that Capitalism isn't jeopardized by a recurrence? But that's looking at this from the scientific side. That's right, less than the extra-judicial lynching, I am most disturbed by President Obama's decision to officially dispose of bin Laden's body.

Another Katrina looms, exposed by leaks

But not Wiki leaks. Nay, what is leaking is a supposedly inspected and approved levee in Missouri. Much like the bridge falling into the Mississippi in Minnesota three short years ago, much like the Cimarron street bridge over Fountain Creek/Monument Creek confluence and the Union Pacific railroad tracks which ferry the looted coal southward to Galveston, to be put on ships to China ...every 30 minutes during the day and every 20 at night, Big Ol' Hairy-scary chunk of bridge falling on the creek. It would have got more press if it had delayed those strategic shipments of coal. Same problem. Unmaintained infrastructure. Hey, the Romans built a lot of things from concrete too, like the Colosseum which has stood 1940 years in more or less bad condition for most of that time. The difference being that they DID manage a little maintenance over the centuries. Every now and then you have to make actual repairs not patches. The cause of all these bridges falling, levees rupturing? The people who benefit the most from the existence of a city to service their deepwater ports in Southern Louisiana, for instance, or the roads in Minnesota or even good ol' Colorado Springs, don't feel they owe anything to maintain the source of their un-earned and undeserved wealth. So levees up and down the watersheds in the South and elsewhere are being pounded and hurricane season is just starting. So what if they lose St Louis, for instance, Chattanooga, Memphis, Mobile? The Rich Bitches will be evecuated out to their other properties, and the poor people will be evacuated to a Stadium converted to a concentration camp, they'll shoot a few of the malcontents who don't like that arrangement, call it "Gods Own Urban Renewal Project" again and once the waters have receded they'l have bulldozers remove the homes of those inconvenient Peasants. Pat Robertson wil mumble about how the people dispossessed or murdered actually brought the catastrophe upon themselves. Then spend another week having his political comrades clean up his statements. The rich will have the land of the peasants and clean up their docks and factories enough to get started back in the wage-slavery industries, with a generous Government Grant bought politically on the images of all the non-Rich people who won't get any help. Doug Bruce keeps coming up with Tax The Poorest schemes like "hey, we can completely eliminate the Tax Burden of the rich by simply not paying the bills! And lower the wages of the poor too, Yay for Me!" The results have so far been virtually raw sewage dumped into the Arkansas River wathershed through Fountain Creek so everybody downstream from us can either pony up THEIR money to filter OUR pollution or literally eat shit and die. In the No Tax No Fee mentality, it's perfectly legal, Moral and even Commanded By God to literally poison your neighbors well. They get money off of it so there's obviously no problem.. Of course to fit that last one in they

…While their Political Servants are pushing austerity for the Working Class

But not for their Political Backers, who bailed out their industry at public expense, a pair of Rich-Bitch Investment Bankers from New York took a joyride in a taxi to Las Vegas and Los Angeles "on a whim". Take that, Peasants! We're cutting off your grandma's Social Security and your pension and your rights to bargain for a fair wage and decent working conditions, but we get to make a bold statement of the Divine Rights of Wealthy Assholes! And have the BBC report it as a Serious News Story!!! How Elitist of us! Maybe they'll pick up George Bush, John McCain, Boehner, Scott Walker, our own Doug Lamborn, and Richard Cheney on the way back and fellate them, in gratitude for them using Corporate Welfare public funds to bail them out when they and their sorry ilk trashed the economy for everybody else in the world. Alle Sieg Heil am das UberMenschen Rich Bitches! And by the way, y'all can line up and take turns helping yourselves to a Texas size all-you-can-eat buffet of Kiss My Liberal Ass.

Bob Holmes said he cares for Homeless PEOPLE

...but that homeless women breed like rabbits. And while I wasn't there at the rally at UCCS or however the hell they put it, it strikes me that it's incredibly unlikely that he used the PEOPLE noun to modify the "homeless" adjective. I've noticed a tendency among the Repub/Tea Potty "leaders" here to forget that part. So, Bob, it's like this bubba. Seriously. Your Pomar Foundation welcomed George W into town for a Blasphemy Session yesterday. Guess you're a supporter of his policies, yes? See, he and Your Party don't just kill people with bullets and bombs. Although I suspect that's your prefered method. No, they also kill people by manipulating economic systems to favor a very few wealthy at the expense of a very huge large humongous outrageously big majority of the people, many of whom suffer from such diseases of Society as a result thereof, as Homelessness. Your Heroic Lion-Heart Bush made and indeed, as a consultant still makes, for instance Mexico into a nightmare state. His puppet dictators there have, at the insistence of YOUR Right Wing fellow-travelers, destroyed Mexico's economy using the same techniques they're applying to the economy of the United States today. The fast answer is that the devastation Capitalism has wrought in Mexico in the past two decades has brought infant mortality up to American Standards. Seems with all that Socialized Medicine they were leaders in the hemisphere in Infant Survival rates. The U.S. has had a third world rate for a while and, thanks to the policies being visited on us by YOUR party, it's going to get worse. So, Bob, all those extra babies caused by among other things YOUR party's War on Contraception, it'll balance out by your War on Health Care manifesting itself by killing off a substantial percentage of those babies. I know you'll get comfort from that. Fewer scions of the Poor who will outshine your Demon Spawn in education thus shaming you when they realize you were lying about Poor people being inferior. Take, for instance, Mexico. In Latin America Mexico was a major star because they had a revolutionary system that outlasted the Soviet Union. PEMEX, Petroleo Mexico, the state-owned Oil industry, paid for among other things food subsidies and medical and dental and educational programs that put America quite frankly to shame. But, Capitalism can't survive without Universal Participation so something had to be done. All those U.S. and U.K. trillion dollar corporations, eating their own intestines over the thought that Mexican "PEASANTS" were denying them Their Sacred Right To Own Everything, Especially Shit They Don't Own like sovereign nations. Something had to be done! Those Bad Ol' Socialists were denying you the privilege of running other nations as though they were divisions of your Diseased Corporate System! HOW DARE THEY!?!!! Mexico had a higher rate of literacy than the United States, still does because you can't actually take away an education once it's been achieved, and your Privatize Everything bullshit artists have succeeded in trashing American Public

Operation Iraqi Freedom To Say And Do Exactly What They’re Told

Apparently the Imperialists weren't lying when they said they were bringing American-style "freedoms" In Bahrain and in Iraq... where the Iraqi Puppet Government PIGS have used American style Police Tactics to break up demonstrations, including, with the United States "Freedom" Army standing ready to back them up if the Peasants took the upper hand, simply slaughtering protestors. Something the Colorado Springs Gestapo knows full well, beating and arresting peaceful marchers (mostly elderly and disabled) in the St Patricks Day Parade 2007 "Protesters took to the streets of Iraq again today, demanding the same reforms that have become common cause across the Arab world. But while most nations have chosen violence or empty promises (both of which the Maliki government has dabbled in) to answer these demands, Iraq is also taking a very American idea. On Wednesday the government announced a ban on protests in the capital city of Baghdad, saying that street vendors had complained it was hurting business. The answer was to sequester protesters into specially designated free speech zones. The US began using “free speech areas” to move political dissent away from public view, nominally for security reasons, and became extremely common starting in 2004, when both major party conventions herded protesters into cages that were officially acceptable areas in which to protest. The notion of doing so in Baghdad was mocked by protesters, who insisted that herding them all into soccer stadiums was absurd. Protesters continued to march in the streets instead, and no reports indicate any protesters showed up at the stadiums." The Puppet al Maliki knows how to dance when the Imperial Storm Troopers pull his strings. And the soldiers, airmen, marines and sailors who say they're fighting for OUR freedom there or anywhere else are still lying, as are any of their political allies. One of the slaughters of demonstrators in Iraq happened very recently, when the War-Pigs were applauding demonstrations in Libya and Syria, but, again, having U.S. military standing by in Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and of course, Iraq, to make sure the Peasants didn't get too "uppity" and actually TAKE the "freedom" the U.S. Politicians lie so smoothly and say they've "given" to the region. Meanwhile, Bradley Manning languishes in the Torture Dungeons at Quantico for telling the Truth which those same politicians dare not speak. Hillary Rodham-Clinton, Imperialist that she insists she isn't, said that Iran was "meddling" in the pro-democracy movements. Oh, my! How DARE the Iranian people feel concern for something happening in their back yard! Especially since the Puppet Hereditary Dictators in Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Bahrain, and Kuwait are ROYALTY to and the Iranian government is composed of "Peasants". Yeah, piggoes, some "freedom" you're exporting. Gotta admit, though, the beat downs, arrests, torture and murders THEY commit with YOUR backing, are exactly the same as how you treat American Dissidents. For once you Pig Bastards weren't actually Lying.

Jesus Springs welcomes fugitive Bush

After seeing Colorado College gush over a whitewashed CIA murderer, I'm not in any mood to watch local Christian groupies applaud George War-criminal Bush. The plan for Saturday at the Broadmoor is to pummel the arrogant creep with shoes, ceremoniously of course, and probably in effigy. We'll have a Bush impersonator, a little monkey in a suit strutting about with impunity. And it appeals to me more that we not land any hits, so we'll have Junior ducking this shoe and that, taunting us with his sick hehehe. And won't that reflect reality? Justice frustrated by a snickering good ol' boy. Except, is there outrage left for Bush? I know I hardly feel it anymore. It's Obama dissembling about torture and dropping the bombs now. Here's the list of embarrassing local businesses and idiotri welcoming George Bush to Colorado Springs, they're even giving him an award, apparently he's an inspiration to charter school students: Colorado Springs Christian Schools Steve Schuck Dick Saunders, Saunders Construction El Pomar Foundation Pete & Jackie Kuyper Sonya Camarco, LPL Financial Dewhirst & Dolven, Attorneys Bob & Kelly McGrath Dr. Ron & Renee Rains Interim Healthcare Clear Ink Foundation Colorado Custom Decks Dr. Mike & Kathy Hall Mateos Salon & Day Spa Dar Howard Envision Investment Group Dave & Lynda Bjorklund First Western Trust Bank Scott & Beth Bugosh Richard King Brown Freedom Financial Services The Milestone Group Clear View Properties The Sonchar Family Joseph & Melissa Hornsey Ken & Rae Driscoll Rick & Margaret Brown David & Gloria Neuder Todd Pickle Lee & Mickey Bolin Seelye Group Ltd.

Autism and Mercury

So they "laid that myth to rest", right? Actually, no. The entire focus of Autism in re Toxic Metals got sidetracked onto vaccines with a mercury preservative. Which, some pointed out, CONTAINED FAR LESS MERCURY THAN THE AMOUNT PRESENTLY IN ENVIRONMENTAL SOURCES and that has to be emphasized because the ENVIRONMENTAL SOURCES somehow dropped out of the equation. Chemical industry, M.I. C., anybody? Like mercury released into the environment from metals refining, or perhaps from the manufacture AND USE of ammunition? Like the mercury fulminate, which is a water-soluble mercury compound, nitrated mercury, explosive, used as a detonator/primer compound. When it burns, combusts explosively, does exactly what the product is designed to do, it kills one way quickly. Tosses a somewhat more massive chunk of metal in the general direction of a "target". Meaning, in the case of Wars and Police actions, the primary intent of firearms, A Human Being Whose Life Is Considered To Be Worth Less Than The Life Of The Person Shooting At Him/Her. When it burns that way, the mercury fulminate isn't destroyed, it's vaporized. If you took a two pound brick, broke it, smashed it, turned it into two pounds of dust, it's still two pounds of the original components of the brick. It didn't go away. If you dissolve it in water, not as completely as mercury fulminate does, it's now polluting a larger mass of water and people, other animals and plants can now ingest it. So, is the prevalence of documented Autism cases around military installations ONLY a result of more accurate reporting, more accurate testing available to Military Dependents? It WAS described that way about the Vaccines connection. It minimizes the high probability of modern firearms, concentrated in Military Bases, firing ranges etc. being a cause. Just like the "higher reporting and diagnosis level" was put forth about military dependents and the use of Vaccines. Also in ammunition are other metals, copper and lead being significant. Would YOU willingly drink water with copper sulfate dissolved into it? Seriously, would you? Before you answer consider this information about the use of Copper Sulfate in pesticides. Military bases use shitloads of Pesticides. "Shitload" is an esoteric eco-science term which, if you don't recognize its validity you're probably not an eco-scientist. Military bases kill native vegetation, insects, mammals, birds... yeah, birds. Birds cause extreme damage to military aircraft and also are the hosts for lice and fleas which are in turn the hosts for some really deadly diseases like Leishmaniasis Donovani, caused by a flagellate paramecium that's freaking huge by germ standards, a half-micron long. So they poison the whole place. That's what Agent Orange is, a weed-killer. The part of Agent Orange that causes human deaths due to absolute devastation of the endocrine system, isn't even the active ingredient, it's a dioxin, a chemical that is produced along with the active ingredient but which they can't remove from the finished product without destroying the finished product. Can't do that, now can we? Human lives are cheaper and worth less

THEY can’t afford feudal serfdom any more than US

Meaning the Corporates. Like Bush and Walker. They've sunk their assets and their asses into the credit economy deep. They broke it and expect US to make all the concessions so they can salvage enough of the system to support their luxury lifestyle. It's gone, gone gone...   They'll have real estate without tenants or maintenance, cars without gas or drivers, WideScreen MegaUltra-3D televisions without electricity or audiences. roads that nobody could drive on even if they DID have cars and gas, and no way to pay the Working Class people they've hired to guard their palaces. Their "liquid" assets are phantoms, Credit Cards, Mortgages, car loans. Bush is scheduled to ride his ass into town on what, Palm Sunday, Good Friday? I'll have to check the date. Into a town they look upon as being the New Jerusalem, to be lauded by the New Priesthood at the New Temple to their god Mammon. Blasphemy, yes. It is. And I'm sure they are aware of it. Gov Walker is actually from here, you know. They scheduled the "Lion's Heart" award ceremony before Scott Walkers Putsch, although that was probably coordinated too, Maybe Sir Scott of Walker was going to present King George with the head of American Labor on a silver charger. OK so the Royalist and religious metaphors overlap a lot and I, for one, can't help the fact that their corporate church and corporate state are built on contradictions. But I'm placing my bet that Scott Walker is on the scheduled Evenings Entertainment. Mene, mene, tekel upharsim Mene, Mene, tekel peres

Bolton (reportedly) renews call to Bomb Iran.

As ChickenHawk Supreme, he's done so many times in the past... Called for OTHER people to do the deed. My suggestion for all these "kill in the name of God" Religious Terrorists like Bolton, Bush, Prince, Cheney, Palin etc... strap some dynamite vests on and parachute out over Teheran and do it your Own God-Damn Stupid Self. Pay for it with "your" own money too, you stole that to begin with, took it literally off the dead bodies of your victims, both American and "foreign", as though God really gives two shits about the nationality of either murderers or murder victims. NeoCons are such pukes.

Render unto Obama the peace symbol that is Obama’s

I've always cherished the peace symbol button I wear on my coat lapel, lovingly decorated for me with rhinestones. But I see what it has become, a broach. Time to take it off, not because it's grandmotherly, it's pure and simple outrée. PEACE: Yeah, who doesn't want peace --so what? That the peace symbol has become ubiquitous would have been something to celebrate only a couple years ago when it marked you as an obstinate hippie or wannabe malcontent. Today peace means Pax Obamana: WORLD PEACE imposed by imperial drone, PEACE KEEPING by occupation. The PEACE OF MIND come of military security. The PEACE AND QUIET absent of conscience, PEACEFULLY free of dissonant free speech. When George Bush said he would bring corporate malfeasance into compliance with the law, we thought he would reform their lawbreaking, instead Bush meant he'd change the law. Obama promised peace, the war = peace incarnation, and he intends to bring us into compliance.

The War, on illiteracy. High School Seniors unable to pass ASVAB tests.

So the predicted backlash of BushCoNomics War on Education is coming out. "Throwing money at" education was deemed inefficient and ineffective. Making sure that schools which were struggling to educate the next generation of Coolies and Cannon Fodder for the Corporate machine, not performing well enough, were to be cut off from federal funding, leaving the Corporate Compassion of the local business, be it Massey Energy or GM or Martin-Marietta, or Tidewater Oil, Or The Army... to pick up the slack.It was to be a National Implementation of "The Texas Model" pushed by George, Jeb and Neil Bush. Twelve years of this Noble Experiment by (first) two states which have a standardized statewide curriculum, set by the governor of each state, the governors happened to be sons of a bi.. err Ex-President, yeah, that's the ticket, and have another brother who sells textbooks. It's just a coincidence that the "Educational Resources" provider McGraw-Hill publishing, for whom Neil works as a salesFreak poured millions of dollars into the state campaigns of George and Jeb, and George's Anointed Successor Rick Goodhair, who in turn used their positions to buy school textbooks for EVERY FREAKIN' SCHOOL DISTRICT in their two very large states. No conspiracy there, no sir! And poured more millions into the National "no child left behind" campaign, which also (just a coincidence, mind you, nothing to see here citizens, keep moving, nothing to see) purchased, with the even larger Federal budget, even more of their products. Products designed not to make children more educated in "elitist" disciplines like arts, music, THINKING LOGICALLY but to better prepare them for McWalMart Jobs and of course being infantrymen, to serve the Rich and kill other soldiers and other workers who don't cooperate with the Agenda of the Very Rich. Like having enough non-Rich people able to pass the ASVAB tests and join the Army and spill their own blood for the Rich so the Rich don't have to spill THEIR own blood. Nothing that would prepare them to take what very slim chance for social and economic advancement was (allegedly) available through diligence, hard work and Educational Achievement. Accusations of this policy being remarkably similar to the Old South Slave Codes which forbade the Slaves from learning to read, and provided Capital Punishment for any person who TAUGHT a slave to read, or the Post-Civil War terrorist actions of the Ku Klux Klan and similar groups to suppress education, (teachers and schools were the largest groups attacked by Klan terrorists) is of course Silly Liberal Elitist "conspiracy theory" and in itself Racist. (the Klan and their related groups like The Heritage Foundation, Tea Party, and Minutemen are of course not racist... just ask one, he'll tell you "We're not racists, that's a damn Commie Pinko Propaganda statement spread by them Liberal Nigger lovin' queer Jew-boys, and we all know how much THEY lie!") So the magic is, the wonderful gift they gave themselves and by extension, the rest of the world, that after 12 years of NCLB being the law of
