President Obama celebrates 4th of July in true Neo American spirit, rewarding foreign mercenaries for their service

Remember Rome's soldier citizens? American forces now augment their numbers by recruiting foreign legionnaires with the promise of US citizenship. President Obama reportedly spent the Fourth of July in the company of soldiers for hire, hired to commit American war crimes with the advantage that if killed, they wouldn't be tallied as American casualties. On the plus side, this batch also evaded being caught red handed committing war crimes, but ultimately the public does not know what it takes to earn that final prize, behaving like Americans or outwitting Americans.

How come Pottery Barn rules don’t apply to Haiti?

When Tony posted nearly three years ago (!) about how shocking conditions in Haiti had become, it was a magnet for people saying the starving kids pictures (from Medicins sans frontiers, internationally respected medical aid agency, just not so much here in America) were recycled pictures from Ethiopia 3, 2 and one decade ago. Then when that was refuted, and before they raised that Stupid Response again, the people of Haiti were blamed for their own misfortunes. As though their LEADERS had actually been empowered by popular vote instead of installed, against the expressed will of the People, by and for the profit of American Corporate Hegemony. Alternating with French Hegemony until the AmeriCorp bought out the French. We broke it, we supposedly bought it, right? That's the one of the irRationale for staying in Iraq and Afghanistan. (rationale is both plural and single, I checked, you didn't, kiss off) Of course, it's not the American Corporations who are Paying the bills "we" ran up by breaking all the pottery, although they seem to be getting quite a lot of public funding to manipulate the Public Army and the Public intelligence community and the public "rebuilding" campaign, which mostly consists of taking very expensive videos and photographs of Other People moving the shards around. Much the same way they're paid to watch and take pictures while other people bury the Dead "shards" in Haiti. Through public funding for their private "efforts". Some have seen fit to criticize my frequent use of Capitalization and italics and bold type and ComBinatiOns Of tHem but some people need a little help finding juicy nuggets amidst the kibble. Both are Nourishing Mind Food but the juicy bits are more fun. Sometimes. Some of the people have difficulty seeing, which is a condition with which I can easily relate. Others are just kind of inured to reading and hearing Bullshit from the likes of Glenn Beck and need a little help finding emphasis in NORMAL thoughts. It's not that Glenn Beck is mentally defective, it's what he's paid to say, in the Corporate anticipation of the Audience being mentally defective. In a way, though, the situation in Ethiopia and Haiti is the same case, revisited. "Conservative" (their own code word for Racist Right Wing Extremists) Pundits insist that black people are incapable of governing themselves so it's up to the Great White Father in Washington to guide and assist and let's face it, outright Rule Over the poor little darkie savages. But Ethiopia has for several occasions been the richest nation on earth and in cumulative time they managed to do it for longer than the Americas have actually experienced European Rule. Intermittently because the times Ethiopia has been devastatingly poor have been periods of colonial rule. Like the Romans exacting tribute from them, and in the past couple of centuries European and European-American Corporate Rule turning Their nation into Our plantation. Same with Haiti. When the U.S. went to war with Hawaii and deposed their "tyrannical"

How to discuss the “mosque rule” at the Powwow… Suggestions?

The Powwow will be September 25 at Rock Ledge Ranch, "technically" according to the West Side Pioneer, local newsletter, a part of the Garden of the Gods. Which is a sacred site for American Indians. The same people who put this really offensive sign up at Bancroft Park that Old Colorado City was the first "permanent settlement" in the region. Meaning, the First Permanent WHITE Settlement. By the way, there's a town bordering Ft Worth called White Settlement. Name says it all, too. You can get arrested for the crime of "Being, while Black or Brown" but I digress. Neglects the fact that even the Anasazi had settlements throughout the region, most within 300 miles of here. People in our International audience might not think that's close, but in the Western United States, that's known as "right around the corner". Even the migrant tribes had their regular spots that they "migrated" to every year. Much like Rich Folks who have a summer home in the Hamptons and a winter play-house in Vail or Aspen and the beach house in Nassau, and the long term lease on that chateau in Monte Carlo. Only not exactly on a "at whim" basis. But the Garden of the Gods, and the Medicine Wheel at Standing Bear Butte, indeed the entire Black Hills, and Hueco Tanks, and The Iowa Bluffs, all have gotten the status of being places where people can worship freely in the past 32 years. The American Indian Religious Freedom Act was passed in 1978. What Custer was trying to break up at Little Bighorn was a RELIGIOUS GATHERING. A "punitive" expedition because several of the Tribes met on grounds the U.S. Government flatly refused to recognize as neutral. They assigned each tribe a reservation and told them to stay on those reservations. The gathering at Little Bighorn was to make medicine against a white folks encroachment on not only Reservation Land, but holy ground, at Deadwood. By the way, if you buy "Black Hills Gold" you're buying into the murder of the Black Hills, which are regarded as the Heart of the World. It goes beyond the example of the Mount Rushmore statues being like breaking into the Vatican and carving your name on all the walls. There was a Colorado Statute that forbade, on pain of DEATH, practicing the American Indian rituals. The Garden of the Gods is ringed by interloping "private" properties which were built in defiance of the treaties establishing it as a religious site. One of them built by General William Jackson Palmer, Real Estate Thief and Corporate Welfare Recipient Extraordinaire. His idolatrous statue is parked in the middle of the intersection of Platte and Nevada right by Acacia Park. The "good christian" City Leaders who considered and still consider the Indian rituals to be satanic have no problem at all with breaking the commandment about Graven Images and Idolatry when it comes to worship of Murderous Thieves like Palmer and Custer. What's that you said, Jonah? STILL oppose the Religious Freedom of

DumFox Noose beating the Racist Anti- Immigrant Drum, what a surprise.

But of course it's not "racist" to give known Klan-affiliated PIG groups like the Arizona cops the power to arrest people who can't produce proof of citizenship, based solely on the appearance of the people being arrested. The Border Patrol has harrassed me on several occasions, sometimes at Gunpoint, for the "crime" of "looking mex" but of course, the Racist Arizona (and soon, the Racist Colorado) Pigs would somehow forbear from arresting people for "looking mex", even though the ordinance specifically states that they can do so any time their Piggy little hearts desire. One time, not long before 9/11, I was at my brother's apartment in Texas, setting up some computers, when the neighbors called 9-1-1 because a swarthy individual was in the neighborhood. (me) The (of course, non-racist) Texas PIGS showed up at my brothers door, and demanded Identification from me. Yes, people, the PIGS actually took seriously a 9-1-1 call where the "emergency" was the presence of somebody who isn't blonde and blue eyed. I closed the door on their Racist collective ass. One of them said I "looked like Saddam Hussein". People, my picture is up here on the top left panel. I don't even look like Saddam Hussein to BLIND people. But, under the Arizona Racist Statute, that refusal to cooperate with their unlawful order for me to identify myself On My Brother's Private Lease, would quite likely get me killed. And, since I would LAWFULLY defend myself, it would probably get a pig killed too. AND, that leaves alone the notion that the Minuteman Racist Pukes also feel THEY have granted themselves police powers to arrest, detain and even KILL people they suspect of being undocumented residents, and that they have, apparently with the full blessings of the State of Arizona, murdered people, in particular the nine-year-old AMERICAN Child Briseña Flores and her father Raul. Those who read this and want to object to the term "American" being applied to Americans who have Spanish names and swarthy complexions, you Ku Klux Kids kan just piss up a rope and suck the wet end. You pukes will NEVER have the right or the authority to judge whether Anybody is "American". I do support the Democratic challenge to that "law". If the Republican Party ever did anything that wasn't mean-spirited, hateful or Corporate Welfare perhaps I would support such an action without regard to party. They don't so I won't. They also are trying to pass a national law that anybody who doesn't have a "valid" birth certificate, to be independently and arbitrarily determined by the Racist National Committee, that person would not be allowed to hold public office. That would include having a job sweeping the parking lot at City Hall or working on a road crew, just from the way it's worded. They're still spitting fire about Obama getting 21,000,000 more votes than Racist McCain and his equally or more so Racist running mate, a 70 MILLION vote rejection of their Racist Policy. I've never claimed

To GOL! or not to GOL! that was the question.

How would it have been played out in the press had the Team America gone on to at least a higher level of victory? We've already suffered through an anti-Immigrant slam against major league baseball, with all the appropriate "OUTRAGE! (copyright 1993-2010 Fox News Networks)" about Major League players getting visas and work permits when immigrating from Cuba and (gasp!) Mexico. Not any rage against any favoritism but the fact that people PEOPLE from Cuba and Mexico were given work permits in the first place. How dare they let more of THEM infiltrate America! Not much crying about the "patriotic" symbolism of some of our best baseball players being from places like Costa Rica. So how would it play out that a team built on the skills of Immigrants took the U.S. to a World Cup win? More to the non-point, how will it play out with the loss? Will immigration be blamed or praised? I should remind here, and probably should have much earlier, that somewhere near half, plus or minus a few points, of my own ancestors were immigrants. And that many of the "immigrants" who are taking so much heat from the Racists are actually Native Americans, kicked back and forth even in pre-Columbian times by that old devil Imperialism. Now defined more by arbitrary political boundaries than by any REAL considerations. My sister was born in England, off base and at home, rather than on "U.S. Soil" at the Mendenhall RAFB hospital. U.S. Soil could be and has been defined as ships flying the United States Flag. The El Paso County (Texas) Hospital District is about a mile and a half north of the Rio Grande, people born there are Citizens of the U.S. regardless of the citizenship of their parents, if an "All American" mother gives birth in a different hospital on the Mexican side of the bridge, the kid is automatically a U.S. citizen because his parents were. The first case scenario scares living Hell out of the Racists, and they complain about it bitterly. The second case scenario is accepted by them as being a matter of Divine Rights possessed by a narrowly defined group of descendants of Immigrants who happen to have English surnames and somewhat lighter skin tones. An "American" citizen couple with the surname Smith would experience less Racist bullcrap getting their kids citizenship determined than an American family whose ancestors were in Texas for thousands of years longer than the Smiths were, but have the surname Gonzalez. But of course, it's not racist. The Racist Anti-Immigrant Lunatic Fringe insist on that point. In the recent election cycle, Barack Obama was and still is questioned about his citizenship. Someway, somehow, an American who would have been an American citizen no matter what simply because his mother was a citizen, was involved in an elaborate plot to make it appear as though he had been born in Hawaii. A point of citizenship that would only make a rat's ass worth of difference if

Puerto Rico Birth certificates cancelled, Citizens Forced To Prove Citizenship.

Is it any coincidence that this is aimed at the single largest concentration of non-Anglo CITIZENS in America? Yet the racist pricks in the Minutemen and other anti-"immigrant" Hate Groups, orchestrated by Fox News, deny any racist intent. Just like Joe Arpaio and Sarah Palin and John McCain deny their own blatant Racism in these matters. Bunch of Lying Pukes, can't even muster the courage to state their beliefs and intents openly. Who's next on their Klan-affiliate Hit List? The Chiricahua, Mescalero, Lipan and Jicarilla Apache, and other Native Tribes who have triple citizenship, in the U.S., their own Tribal nations and Mexico? Perhaps the Northern Cheyenne, Blackfoot, Crow, Sioux, Mohawk? For the same reason. Not "national security" as proclaimed by the Hate Freaks. But White insecurity. Fear the Brown... Fear fear fear... and disguise your actions as Courage. It was early this spring that an acclaimed (white) local historian called the Ethnic Cleansing Genocide that occurred locally as a "Counter-insurgency" and compared it to the conquest of Iraq and Afghanistan. Imagine that, the Invaders calling the natives Rebels for refusing to bow the knee to their Mighty Great White Father. "Down from the trees, and onto your knees!" This is just another case of "We're gonna teach those Wogs to respect their betters!" Their label of it as being Immigration reform doesn't fit. We're not seeing Immigrants, illegal or otherwise, being Racially Profiled Here. We're seeing PEOPLE, Born as citizens of the United States, being stripped of their citizenship and forced to prove to Racially Motivated political hacks that they're "pure" enough to get their citizenship back.

An Idea whose time has come…

Seriously, since the NeoCons still insist that we have Hegemony over the entire known Universe, a religious belief that we are so much better than the rest of the world that we owe it to them to run their countries for them... then why not grant each person in each Conque errr... "Liberated" country full United States Citizenship? My soon-to-be brother in law is Tongan by birth, he very seldom goes TO Tonga and was raised in Hawaii from the time he was about a year old. Homeland Security cleared him soon after 9/11, he had a job at DFW loading meals onto flights for AA. One time some Fearful Freak Redneck got all nine-eleven nine-eleven nine-eleven stupid about a Large Dark-skinned fellow being on the plane with his Obviously Non-Racist Arse. Stupid fears, held by stupid people. So he was going to marry my sister last week. Cool, eh? But I.C.E. has to have the last word on everything, he didn't have his ORIGINAL Birth Certificate, so the Frightened Ones wouldn't let them get their marriage license until he proves (apparently with something more than the huge file that the Frightened Feds keep on every "foreign national", even and especially those who grew up here) that he is who he says he is. I mean, come the hell on, they've got hair samples (do you think for a moment that a Racist and Fascist Totalitarian Police State wouldn't have that? think not? Welcome to the REAL world, check your delusions at the door upon entrance) fingerprints, biometrics, iris scans, etc etc etc... as well as a dossier of his entire life history, but he can't get his ID card updated without proving who he is without his Original Birth Certificate. One of Miss Johnnies sons was born on Guam, but they didn't make it to the Air Force Base hospital so he wasn't on U.S. soil. Even though the U.S. Military runs Guam any way they see fit, but only in the Proper Neo-Colonialist Manner, they only beat the Wogs three times a week. How Very Civilized of them. So he's a citizen, both his parents including his dad who died from Agent Orange in service to the USAF, were citizens, but there's still that Birth Certificate bullshit. My other sister, Audrey, same way, born at home off base in London... Citizen, but not "native". And, has trouble getting her Drivers License renewed because of that Original Birth Certificate. Which is purest bullshit, just like the manufactured FAKE scandal about President Obama's Birth Certificate. Guam and Tonga were added to the "not really conquered vassal possessions even though we treat them as such" list through the Wondrous agency of World War 2. And kept in such bondage by the U.S. Military "needing" the bases in THEIR countries in order to maintain our delusion of Masters over sea and land. "We goddamn OWN the world, so we NEED those bases to keep the Peasant Natives from thinking they own their own countries!" Audrey was born
