Gag-zette has “comments disabled for this story”

Maybe it’s because people who are god-damned sick and tired of the Gazette taking the Right Wing stance of always giving the Pigs a blanket amnesty for any crimes they commit.  Typical wingnut behavior. Nothing to see, citizen, nothing to see. The story now is that they took him to a hospital. Probably after beating him to death. “Him” being Jeremy Thompson.     And the people who have learned, through many many many many Deaths In Custody and the typical coverup efforts would demand the Gazette and all other LameStream Media outlets actually grow a set and actually ask real questions rather than just covering up for their darling pigs.

To those true patriots who demand accountability from non-elected bureaucracies like the police state in all it’s inglorious manifestations, I say thank you. If a prisoner, even in self defense, even if it’s accidental like getting bodily fluids on a PIG while the PIG and his PIG Comrades are beating him down, always while he’s handcuffed or similarly restrained. The way their nazi mommas taught them to fight… but I do digress…

If the person makes contact with the cops, even in self defense, the PIG system will have him charged with Assault on a “peace” Officer and will try their mightiest to give him a life sentence.  Shit, the lying Kolorado Kangaroo Kourts system will prosecute the victims of police violence even if no semblance of an assault occurred. The Gazette will report faithfully to their PigMaster’s script, Back The Badge, always give the police benefit of the doubt. And they’ll always do exactly the opposite for the victims of brutality. We the People must Obey and Grovel at the feet of the police. Alle Sieg Heil am Der Amerikanisch Gestapo!

 

 

The News Corporation blackout continues…

Not just Rupert Murdoch’s share of it either, the MSM is covering #occupywallstreet with a blanket of silence. Everytime Sarah Palin farts there’s ten cameras recording the event and all the reporters volunteer to tongue wash her rectal orifice.
It’s fascism at its essence, right down to the “free” press fawning over the Police State brutal suppression of the voice of the people at (wall) street-level. And receiving direct tax-paid subsidies to the Corporations including their “free” press mouthpieces. The MSM shrieks on the command of their Overlords and keeps silent on command. Like our Local Fascist media, KOAA, the Gazette, other “Freedom” Corp “news” outlets… with their parent corporation in bankruptcy for the past three years and still they’re being bailed out, at whose expense? Since their corporate partners don’t seem eager to actually buy their debt from them, who’s paying their bills, and doing it secretly? Is it the GWOT Department of Lies, the ones set up in late 2001 to spread disinformation to the press and squash legitimate news with silence?

Apparently the FOX news and “freedom” corp Trolls are getting the word.

Pressure Points Radio on homelessness

Pressure Points Radio is show in New York City. Today’s broadcast, which unfortunately I missed, included Our Little Slice of Hell errr Parrot Dice damn that was a bad joke. Ed hasn’t posted it to youtube yet, his youtube channel is PikesPeakOcean. So, a quick run-through of the basics, for those who just stumbled onto NMT. People being homeless is problem enough, for the people themselves, and when the City, like New York, Orlando, Colorado Springs… falls into the hands of Stuck Up Social Elitists, which isn’t even near the category of “socialists” who decide to punish the Gentlemen of Limited Means by making their lives even MORE difficult, like making it illegal for them to even exist as Human Beings, the mainstream press and even the Right Wing Lunatic Core like DumFox Noose take the story directly from the Lying Mouths of the Stuck Up Social Elitists and they start a mutual masturbation type event where they build each other up as somehow “heroic” for Tackling the “Homeless Problem”.

The Police Establishment will of course get involved in order to try to polish THEIR image and plus get more funding and power for their Gang of Uniformed Thugs.

There ARE media, such as Pressure Points Radio, and youtube channels like PikesPeakOcean and our own Beloved Not My Tribe who will challenge the Official Story and instead take sides with the Human Beings who are demonized with the non-human title “Homeless Problem”.

So more will be forthcoming as soon as they email me back with a link to the archive of todays show.

AP says “In face of Federal inaction on Immigration”…

Way to slant a headline! “State initiatives to stem immigration fizzle in the face of Federal inaction.” How about reporting it like this?
“Racist State Legislators, in the face of opposition from Mainstream Americans, who would be the REAL targets of their Racial Profiling initiatives, even with massive funding from Nazi organizations like News Corp and Freedom Corporation (Channel 5 news, the Gazette…) and their Corporate Overlords, despite Nazi-Klan related heavily subsidized “grass roots” organizations such as the TeaParty and Minutemen, with all that expensive and highly organized firepower, still failed to force their Racist Agenda on the states the same way they FAILED to do so on the Federal Government” Oooh, I bet that stings. When you call yourselves non-racist but want to profile people, most of whom are United States Citizens, based on their appearance of belonging to heavily stereotyped and demonized ethnic, social or religious groups?

You can say all you wish, Michelle Malkin, Sheriff Joe, Tancredo, Palin, Jan Brewer, all y’all Racist Freaks, that you don’t racially profile people, but when you’re trying to push that outrageous lie on any of the MILLIONS of Americans you’ve already profiled, like myself, we’ll call you the Liars you truly are.

When La Migra and local police organizations confronted Me, personally, with violent threats of sudden murder, pointing MACHINE GUNS at me, for the so-called “crime” of looking Mex or in one case looking Arabic in the words of the Officially Non-Racist officers “like a sand-nigger”, and then coward bitches like Malkin and Tancredo saying that doesn’t go Far Enough? Bitches, you LOST that argument. Calling me stupid or crazy for presenting the evidence, as your Lunatic Moron Minions have, repeatedly, (because that’s your only defense against the Truth, as always) didn’t stop MILLIONS of Americans from recognizing the same truth I’ve recognized and reported for so long.

TeaBags, RepubliKlan, Minutemen, your policies are and always were Racist and, since you apply them primarily against AMERICANS that makes you Anti-American Terrorists.

Y’all can line up and take turns helping yourseves to a Texas-size all you can eat buffet of Kiss my Dark-skinned Liberal Ass.

Y vuestros Mamas Tambien, putos.

Oh Come THE HELL ON! Get Your Damn Story Straight, SEALs!

First they said that Usama had “died like a coward” throwing a woman at the SEALs as a “human shield” and The Denver Post and the GagZette and every other Blood-thirsty “news” Propaganda agency in the country bought it, ate it up like a scoop of ice cream. NOW, typical of Cop behavior when they blow away an unarmed suspect, the PIGS are saying they thought he was going for a weapon.
Which is it? Did he have both hands full of Female Human Shield or was he going for a gun You Lying Sons Of Bitches? This isn’t your average midnight Terror Police Raid, this one has hanging on it all the idiotic War Drum Beating about taking over Pakistan in addition to the two unwinnable wars you already have going. Iraq still isn’t ruled by the Iraqi people, they still have the Puppet Nouri al Maliki using U.S. Soldiers to keep the Iraqi people from storming his castle. The Warmongering Profit-hungry GreedPigs are still raking in the do-re-mi over that and other actions they can sell the Weapons of Conquest to “Mission Accomplish”.
How much fatter must we allow the Daddy Warbuck Hogs to get?

The Navy and anybody else in the loop have been changing their stories more often than changing partners at a square dance. A regular Snake Orgy of tangled lies.

Operation Chaos Backfired (also the TeaTard action in Wisconsin)

So, the DumFox leaders became so frightened of the hordes of non-white-anglo-saxons having the majority of the votes, if the representative districts were counted correctly, they thought of a brilliant (in their opinion) plan to skew the results of the census by getting the more ignorant of the White Anglo Saxon Protestant DumFox to boycott the Census, thereby giving them an excuse. Mind you, they’re still operating under the fiction that the Republican and Tea parties are somehow separate entities from each other and that NewsCorp is a separate entity from both. The most hard-core TeaBag morons know this, but prefer to lie about it.
Now, Bush’s anointed replacement as Governor of Texas, Tom DeLay and his ventriloquist dummy Rick GoodHair Perry, forced a redistricting 8 years early after the last census, to insure more Republican dominated districts. They did skew that census, really hard, by spreading a terroristic rumor in minority (but now combined MAJORITY) communities similar to the retarded ones they spread in the Redneck Hoam Skewl Ignorant communities with the current census. GoodHair and Co. ain’t barkin’ real loudly about redistricting almost a decade early this time. Instead, they’re going to make the motion that the Census be disregarded because they themselves broke it. Oh, yeah, that’s right, they’re still pretending that Fox News and Rush Limbaugh don’t actually work for them and Fox is saying they’re fair, balanced and have no agenda.

They’re using the same flawed interpretation of The Pottery Barn Rule “you broke it you bought it” that they used when they “suddenly realized” that their wars against the people of Iraq and Afghanistan were destroying their nations.
OOPSIE..

Problem with that is, the rule they cite isn’t “you broke it, you can now force other people to pay for it AND force them to pay to fix it and then you can have it for the small price of breaking it”.
With the Retardican “justices” on the Supreme Court, like Scalia and Clarence “uncle” Thomas, loyal like only really stupid people can be, subservient to the Korporate Klan Kartel, they might have a chance to get it “legally” approved.

But that assumes that the victims of their crimes, the American people, will tolerate it and meekly submit.
And the stupid bastards often make statements wondering why people would throw airplanes at their Temples to their god Mammon.
“Why don’t those peasants simply agree with our assessment of them as being Inferior Beings, and bow before our (non-elitist non-Racist) White Supremacy?”

Apparently, too, they couldn’t get enough TeaBags and other White Wing Freaks (but only in a non-racist non-elitist sense of White Supremacy)
to actually go and face the very angry Union workers who they’re trying to screw through legislation. Maybe they suddenly pulled their heads out of their collective Arse and realized that they miscalculated how far their Astroturf roots don’t really go.

Maybe DumFox News didn’t plan ahead and rent a fleet of Greyhounds to bus them in.
Or D) all of the above.

Hillary Free speech part two

While she was speaking… she had a 71 year old Former CIA analyst BEATEN by Capitol Pigs for “heckling” her… not by screaming denunciations, but by quietly standing up and turning his back on her LIES. Like Sarah Palin having people beaten and arrested for not sitting down and not shutting up while she was lying HER ass off about “don’t sit down and don’t shut up” You must to sit quietly while the Fuhrer speaks, then applaud at appropriate moments! Alle Sieg HEIL!

The Police, as always, happy to jump people they consider weak and helpless.

When they go looking for victims of their brutal cowardice, they have a hiring preference for those who are elderly, handicapped or Children

Julian Assange is being vilified, now, under orders from Ms Hillary, as “not a Journalist”. Not your mere personal insult, it’s a charge led by her old enemies/friends at FOX news, their screed being that “Commoners” such as for instance, ME, shouldn’t be allowed First Amendment Protection for words published on the Internet, the reasoning bing that it’s written, not speech, but not “Press” because we’re not an established News outlet. While they can pump up their Ignorant Audience with lies, and goad them through hatred into doing senseless acts of violence against “liberal terrorist traitors” like Rand Paul ordering his goons to beat down Lauren Valle for “heckling” him. or Jared Loughner slaughtering yet another 9 year old American child in Arizona.

The Right Wing Thugs who did that to Ms Valle demanded SHE apologize to THEM. For what? Smearing their smoothly polished Jackboots with her blood? See a pattern here?

The ones shouting the loudest about “Freedom” are the worst hypocrites, a PIG Pantheon that includes virtually every elected or appointed public official in America, Most times it’s done in Jail Cells, or the back of a patrol car, far from any civilian witness. Like what they’re doing with Bradley Manning.

The Pentagon makes a huge propaganda gain by calling him a “weakling” but they always have a 5-man PIG crew of MPs to move him, shackled and drugged.

That’s the way the Hypocrite Cowards know how to fight.

What will they do next, murder him the way they did Crazy Horse, shackled hand and foot, then bayoneted in the kidney, literally stabbed in the back, for “trying to escape”?

Their Pig hypocrisy is nothing new and pervades their system from top to bottom and all points in between.

The Wikipedia page for one of my references has an annotation on it that it might not be “Objective” enough, because it states the obvious that the MinuteCoward “American Defense” racist militia did the murder.

Shawna Forde, the leader of the group, was found guilty yesterday of the murder, her accomplices are awaiting trial. This in spite of the Arizona Police attempting to minimalize the crime by saying that Raul Flores, father of 9 year old Brisenia, was a “suspected” drug dealer. The Pigs rallied behind their Racist Comrades, as usual.

Flag pin betrayal

Of course you know I would just never unleash a vicious attack like mocking a fake-patriot or faux-elitist move like wrapping ones bullshit in either the flag or the cross. Just have to point out that the flag lapel pin, the one Republicans bitched and whined so much about Democrats not wearing, the one Lisa Czeladtko is wearing in the picture chosen by Gag-Zette writer Daniel Chacon when “calling out” Ed over his Free Speech opposing a political candidate. Not that The Gag-zette (Colorado Springs Gazette, “Freedom” Communications”) has ever so much as given a mild tsk-tsk’ing to violent attacks on Free Speech in Colorado Springs, usually instigated by City Council or persons very close to them.St Paddies Day 2007 leaps to my mind. Or to Fake Patriotism. You’ll notice, if you’re observant, that the “flag” in question has 7 stripes and 18 stars.

It’s a sign of the depths of rabble rousing the “elitists” will plumb when wanting to silence any opposition to their agenda as “unpatriotic” and Anti-Christ.

“Calling out” by the way, is in Colorado and other Western states, a challenge to physical violence. Usually issued by a heavily armed Coward who is so sure of victory that he assumes he can force the other person to apologize for saying anything.

Then go get drunk with his redneck comrades. Might makes right, Oderint dum Metuant “let them hate us as long as they fear us”.

Maybe Chacon should more carefully consider HIS choice of words. That way he wouldn’t leave himself open to Attacks errr… criticism that lumps him in with the likes of Caligula, King Charles II of England and George W. Bush.

So the Rich Pigs are afraid their piglets will see what poverty looks like, instead of, as Ms Lisa Siddhattha suggests, hiding the poverty from the delicate eyes of the Piglets?

Lest they see the human price of their own opulent lifestyle.

Actually, her ties to Developers, like the Flag Pin, betray her true agenda.

According to the Developer Religion, evidenced by the Real Estate Developer who “founded” Colorado Springs, the idolatrous statue of whom sits in the meddle of the intersection at the Northwest corner of Acacia Park,

According to their money worship Cult of Mammon, the sight of poverty in CS would drive down real estate prices. Therefore they wouldn’t have enough blood-money profits from selling their stolen-at-gunpoint land.

One of their High Priestesses, Janis Heuberger, wrote in her blog that Bicycles should be banned from acacia Park, because “only the Homeless” ride bicycles. There were further suggestions by one of her sycophantic supporters that people who LOOK homeless should be banned from city parks.
Imagine that, the “non-elitists” as they style themselves, seeking to impose a conformist dress code on the citizens of Colorado Springs. To protect their profit margin. And even ban an economical, non-wasteful and healthy form of transportation. Unless you drive a gas-guzzler you’re not welcome in Colorado Springs. Nothing elitist about that, No Sir!

And failing to admit that it was Real Estate Developers who in one fell swoop crashed the economy, providing the pin that burst the bubble of Capitalism, turning millions of Americans into potentially homeless PEOPLE. (notice that, Chacon, Czeladtko, Heuberger? Those of us who speak the English Language know that “homeless” is an adjective, not a noun. “the homeless” should properly include the human title PEOPLE)

Ms Lisa and Ms Heuberger and Chacon might have their sycophants answer this by saying that I’m lumping all of them together. No, messieurs et mesdames, YOU lump yourselves together. Frequently.

Shocking Gag-Zette Headline!

Poverty spread in County since 2000.
Oh My. The Gagzette is now recognizing that there are actual poor people in the city.And County.
That’s the shocking part of the news.
For those who aren’t in Colorado Springs, and don’t know, that would sound like they’ve got their heads buried so far up their colons that they just didn’t actually realize, well… that’s part of it but not the whole story. The whole story is their journalistic commedy act is like Fox Lite and they steadfastly deny that the same market forces that concentrate the vast majority of the wealth into the hands of a tiny minority of the people, would just by a bizarre co-inky dink mean that the wealth is snatched from the hands of those who are subsequently labeled “The Poor” and “The Workforce” and “those scurvy beggardly welfare bums”. Adam Smith with his “Invisible Hand” crap strikes again.
Oh, and it happened during the reign of Emperor George the 2nd, aka the Chimpleton. Whose first act as president was to cut taxes for the richest, eliminated some corporate tax debt, cut regulatory “excesses” like the half measures which were designed to keep the Rich Bitch vermin from poisoning our land, water, air and food. The Supply Side his own daddy once called “Voodoo economics”.

But of course the GROWTH of poverty during this “free” market utopian experiment, couldn’t possibly have been caused by it. Nope.

Tea Party Tax Revolt ignorance-mongers rally their usual Republican supporters

COLORADO SPRINGS- The corporate media led by Fox News, local talk radio led by KVOR, and the Gazette editorial page itself, herded their red sheep into Acacia Park today for lunch-time speeches full of hate, ignorance, and good old-fashioned unapologetic self-interest. They didn’t understand my sign, but knew enough to scowl.
Bunch of Republican dim wits who blame their troubles on the poor

Gazette representative Maria St. Louis-Sanchez was live-blogging the event, sitting on the ground beside the stage, which gave her an appropriate lack of perspective for the coverage she intended. For example, this online exchange:

12:33 [Comment From Guest] Is it basically an all white gathering?

12:34 Tough to tell. There seems to be a good mix of people here.

Oh my goodness. The crowd was ALL WHITE! With the lonely exception of deposed-councilman Ed Jones, who delighted the crowd when he proclaimed he was not an African American, he was an American, and derided those critics who would call him an “Uncle Tom.” The crowd cheered Jones, there were even chants exhorting him to run for governor. But if this had been nightfall, and one depression earlier, this is the mob that would have lynched him.

And I’m inclined to imagine that had Jones been Hispanic American, judging from the anti-immigrant rhetoric, they would have jumped him in broad daylight today.

tax day tea party white male

Richard Randall

These were ugly Americans, led by their representative uglies, hate-radio DJ Richard Randall, representative Doug “Porky” Lamborn, the illiterate Quixote Douglas Bruce and business-homophobe Ed Bircham. All pure archetypes of disgruntled white males.

The demographics in my estimation were all white, mostly male, with ugly carved into everyone’s faces from years of being disagreeable and bitter. And a plentiful predominance of pasty obesity.

Disaproval

Ted Haggard is less shifty than New Life Church

COLORADO SPRINGS- Ted Haggard’s inconvenient sex life surfaces again! And this time the scandal is all New Life’s. Ted Haggard’s PR talk show onslaught to remake his image has prompted an altar boy to go public. But it seems this violates an agreement the young man made with New Life in the aftermath of the Haggard prostitute meth-habit scandal.

According to the Colorado Springs Gazette, New Life Church leader Brady “Boyd said the church reached a legal settlement to pay the man for counseling and college tuition, with one condition being that none of the parties involved discuss the matter publicly.”

First let’s clarify what New Life has failed to make clear. The young man was in his “early twenties” when he approached the church about the relations between he and Haggard. According to Boyd, the “inappropriate, consensual sexual relationship” had gone on for “a long period of time.” The church denies that the young man might have been a minor when it began.

Second, according to a letter sent to its congregation members as a result of the new revelations, New Life Church admits now that it has “received reports of a number of incidents of inappropriate behavior.”

In light of Ted Haggard trying to repaint himself as a victim in an HBO documetary, and on Oprah Winfrey, and an upcoming Larry King Live, the New Life ex-volunteer now wants to go public with his story.

While the church told the public, and its congregation, that Haggard’s impropriety did not extend beyond the Denver prostitute, it looks like New Life Church deliberately kept this story under wraps, despite an “overwhelming pool of evidence” to indicate otherwise. In the face of the hush-up coming to light, their official response is even more duplicitous.

“It wasn’t at all a settlement to make him be quiet or not tell his story,” Boyd said. “Our desire was to help him. Here was a young man who wanted to get on with his life. We considered it more compassionate assistance – certainly not hush money. I know that’s what everyone will want to say because that’s the most salacious thing to say, but that’s not at all what it was.”

An agreement to keep quiet appears to have been what New Life Church thought “it was.” Asked whether the church will pursue legal procedures against the young man, Boyd replied:

“We have legal standing to do that, but not the desire to.”

Ft Carson shredding casualty records

pfc-albert-nelson-document-shredded
IS THE US-ARMY-BEDMATE-GAZETTE GOING TO REPORT THIS STORY? Salon Magazine was leaked helmet-cam video showing the 2006 deaths of two US soldiers in Ramadi, by friendly fire, which the US Army is still attributing to Iraqi insurgents. Within hours of breaking the story, soldiers working in Fort Carson offices were ordered to shred the documents relating to the slain PFCs. Fortunately Salon was leaked this development as well.

Watch the video. Pay no heed to the warnings of graphic violence and profanity. What the tape reveals is the inanity of all the soldiers’ conduct. First, a very imprudent peek through a window at a US tank, which more than likely prompted the tank to fire. As a result, the helmet wearer is knocked to the floor, a soldier on the floor above is wounded (and dies), and another on the roof is killed. What followed was discussion about whether the tank had fired the single round, countered by the commanding officer repeating that the official attribution would be mortar fire until a report proved otherwise. Despite that fact that all the soldiers coming up to the commander are reporting that the tank had fired, and he tells them “I agree with you–.” Also, during the entire sequence no other shot is heard.

It will be interesting to see what Fort Carson intended to accomplish by shredding the records of PFCs Albert Nelson and Roger Suarez. In particular because some of the documents were spirited aside and sent to Salon. Was the Army intending to produce revised versions to support their official report of the soldiers deaths?

El Paso County resists blue trend how?

Two articles caught my eye in this morning’s Gazette, and I’d like to thank the editors for putting them side by side. The first lauded El Paso County’s strong Republican push-back to the Obama landslide, the other illuminated Clerk and Recorder Bob Balink’s dubiously legal measures at the EPC polling stations. Do the Gazette editors think, as I, that one of these stories could have a bearing on the other?

The first article was written with the partisanship we’re used to from the Gazette. In face of this election’s “blue tsunami,” El Paso County remained high and dry. Can we read this any other way than meaning “safe” and Republican (red), in the face of the Obama danger? The article detailed how El Paso County voted against the prevailing tide. Even the Democratic candidates who won elsewhere were “stomped” here. Stomped –like cockroaches?

The adjacent article was about the Clerk and Recorder. It reported that on election day, the media had been banned from the local polling places. This measure was in defiance of common practice and, the question was raised, even election law. Apparently, lawsuits may follow.

Mention was also made of Balink’s attempt to intimidate Colorado College students.

Did the media ban mask inappropriate election worker activity? Had the CC letter deterred student voters?

The article did not mention a yet-to-be investigated story, the mysterious fire alarm at Centennial Hall, a half hour after voting closed. Everyone had to leave the building. By the way, the fire alarm tactic is a recurring theme if you’ve watched video reports of past election irregularities, in this new age of the self-deputized citizen poll watcher.

Centennial Hall was not only the main poll station downtown, and the chief early voting location, it was the central office into which all the El Paso County precincts reported their election results. Might there be a story here?

The article also didn’t address why in El Paso County, paper ballots were not permitted for early voters. Only Diebold touch-screen machines were available for the early birds, who one might guess would have been the most activated of the new wave.

The Colorado Springs Gazette favorably headlines local Communist Party activity in our fair city!

This is, as all presidential election years are, a circus year of American comedy at its best! I mean, we got a gift from John McCain of his female Dan Quail, Sarah Pale In town even! Still, imagine my surprise to see today’s edition of our Far Right Wing daily paper (The Gagzette) with a prominent headline for our city’s only active Communist Party member, gus hall Vivian! She’s been the deliverer of the Communist Party’s national newspaper around town for years now (and a reporter for that paper, too!), but apparently our Gazette ‘reporters’, ‘editors’, and ‘newsmen’ are unaware of that!????? Go figure?

They probably are aware though, that Barack Obama is a Big Bad American Communist? I mean, we are dealing with world class geniuses over that at Freedom Communications, Inc… lol. I hope that they do not now inform the national crowd about Barack Obama’s connections to Colorado Spring’s Communist Movement, now that they are getting the real scoop about my friend Vivian, the CP reporter and paper deliverer?

OK, here’s the link to the Gazette’s pro- Communist Party activity, though you have to buy the paper’s hard copy to get the full effect, as their website really doesn’t give a good idea of how much they actually headlined their pro-CP coverage. I’ll be laughing through the next year over this one, you can bet on that! Campaigners on different sides, but have same passion

Go Vivian! I love you even if you are an evil commie! Give me a call so we can get together some! I’m not surprised that you are pushing for Obama.

Could it be that the Colorado Springs Gazette’s editors are Lenin’s useful idiots? For more about the American Communist Party, go to The Gus Hall Fan Club website …I know that our local paper would want you to do that! Go useful idiot team at our local Gagzette! Good work! I’m still not voting for Barack Obama though.

In other news…

The Gag-zette is going whole hog trying to get people to read their Noose-Pooper. I was going to say their Toilet Paper but there’s a fairly entertaining and even more informative underground paper in town with that name, The Toilet Paper.

The Gag is almost to the point of paying people to read it.

It’s painfully embarrassing to watch. They’ve lost all sense of dignity and self esteem.

Of course, you knew, didn’t you, that a newspaper which has as part of its official editorial policy, the notion that Freedom means the duty to do what you’re told to do when you’re told to do it… Ain’t gonna last forever.

The Independent, which gives its paper away free, and only once a week, is making more money than the Zette. How very humiliating that must be!

The mellow waters of the Springs

tap waterLast week the Gazette reported that Colorado Springs had been found to have methadone and Valium in our tap water, making us one mellow city indeed. Drugs found in Springs water This news was reported in the Denver papers, too, but nobody mentioned where the drugs were coming from?

You probably thought it was coming from drug addicts in their private castles, right? Well… wrong. And don’t look for investigative reporting from the local papers to correct your lack of info either. From the national AP we learn from where these drugs were most likely released into our tap water, and it may surprise you, or not? Tons of Drugs Dumped Into Wastewater

The drugs probably came into the Colorado Springs water supply by way of the local hospitals, Penrose and Memorial? Hey, they wanted the waters to be mellow in the Springs! Don’t grow old waiting for The Gazette to do some follow up reporting on this one. It most likely just won’t happen…

US Christians stay mum about Hindu violence against Christians in India

For months now there have been Hindu attacks on India’s Christian communities but America’s Christians remain silent about their cohorts abroad just as they previously have remained silent about Jewish attacks on Christian communities in the Middle East. Orissa mob attacks police station

Christian Rightists in America are too busy trying to whip up an anti-Muslim hysteria in the US to be distracted by the antics of India, which is a country they want to use in their Holy Crusades. Besides, who really cares about the lower castes of India anyway? Certainly not American Christians who support a caste system just about everywhere, with American Christians to be located exactly as the top caste. Christian America has kept entirely quiet about this violence in India, a violence they used to cry about when India was a more ‘non-aligned’ country (more aligned with the evil communist Soviet Union, say..) .

Speaking of how crazy the American Christian community can get, did anybody notice The Colorado Springs Gazette editorial today? No? … lol… Well it railed and ranted against what they declared was an atheist who wanted to behead 2 people for merely being Christians! I kid you not! They called the gun toting neighbor who knocked out one eye of the drunk (for that’s all this fight was really about, a drunk acting out) a ‘hero’, since he had guns! Oh Whooptee Doo!

Yes, it seems that with Sarah Palin now in the act nationwide, that the Right Wing Christian community thinks its time once again for their rampaging loonieness to prevail big time? God save us from your followers, PLEASE. And God save us from The Gazette’s editorial nutiness, too.

And, God, you might notice that some of your good people are getting the shit kicked out of them in India? Oh so what? It’s forward march to kill some more Muslims time, is it not? God is great! America is God! Forward Christian soldiers!

OBSESSION: anti-Islamic documentary is 2006 Zionist election year propaganda

Gazette insert
COLORADO SPRINGS- If you’re not going to watch the propaganda on CNN/FOX/”24″ they’ll bring it to you! Inserted in this morning’s Gazette was OBSESSION: RADICAL ISLAM’S WAR AGAINST THE WEST, a DVD distributed by The Clarion Fund and promoted by Alan Dershowitz. Why a free copy of a 2006 crockumentary now? This “non-partisan organization devoted to educating the public about national security issues” wants us to check out www.radicalislam.org because “it’s our responsibility to ensure we can all make an informed vote in November.” And the DVD insert went to newspapers in SWING STATES!

Obsession posterThe DVD wrapper features a blurb by Michael Medved, the pro-war Zionist cloaked as mild-mannered film critic. Says Medved, “Obsession is one of the most powerful, expertly crafted and undeniably important films I’ve seen this year…” No mention that the year was 2006, and the made-for-a-previous-US-election quasi-documentary has already been widely debunked as racist propaganda. An executive producer of “24” intones: “… required viewing for everyone.”

Oh, and of course Edmund Burke’s helpful nudge: “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.”

Bad enough that this insert went to the Gazette’s 100k readership, it also went out with the newspapers below. This is more than the FREEDOM COMMUNICATION chain, it includes the NYT and the WSJ.

Do you detect a Swing-State pattern where Colorado, Florida, Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Virginia predominate?

I’ve got a few documentaries to recommend for everyone. In particular Colorado Springs. First, how about FOR THE BIBLE TELLS ME SO about the means American Fundamentalist Churches sow division and hatred between peoples. Its climax is set in the Springs, but no local commercial movie theater will dare screen the film. It did visit Colorado College, so we’ll have more to report on the film and its director later.


FOR THE BIBLE TELLS ME SO -Trailer

Next, a recent investigation into the forces moving behind the sensationalizing of NINE/ELEVEN. It’s called FABLED ENEMIES and you can view it online.FABLED ENEMIES
 

Also online is an investigation of the tragedy of the USS Liberty, an American Navy surveillance ship that had the misfortune to witness the Israeli preemptive attack on Egypt in 1967. LOSS OF LIBERTY recounts how Israeli jets were forced to attack the Americans to cover their tracks, killing 34 sailors and wounding 171, and the US administration had to cover-up the incident because it was determined to keep portraying Israel as America’s ally.LOSS OF LIBERTY
 

In the good judgment of the cops

‘Sign here on this ticket for speeding and failure to wear a seat belt (of course!). The bad news is that you have to go to court on this one.’ Thus spoke the cop as the woman sped toward her escape from being raped! In the good judgment of the cops one cannot depend, this case in point.

From our favorite paper, The Gagzette… Woman says traffic cop ignored her claim of rape This story has the ring of truth to it, as anybody stopped by the ticket-writing happy CS PD before surely can sense.

The Gazette stalethinkers

GazetteCOLORADO SPRINGS- The comical Gazette editorial staff today ranted against the Colorado Springs area’s atheist community in a headliner opinion piece, where the stalethinkers of The Gazette pedantically explained in their Bible Talk editorial opinion column ‘why rude guests are not welcome’.

The highlight of this comic strip was the stalethinker writer claiming that the atheists were ‘rude’ just from calling themselves ‘freethinkers’. That hurts their Christian feelings…booh-hoo-hoo… bring out the red, white, and blue hankies now. They claimed that ‘a few atheists have their panties in a twist again’ unlike the ever so courteous Gazette stalethinkers!

The stalethinkers base all their beliefs, they would have us believe…lol, because they are not free enough in their thinking to not follow the Bible all the time (but not so literally since they love killing so much). They believe in a stalethinking brand of Christianity that says the rich are God’s Chosen Ones, because they can freely and stalely kick the poor around all the time. Not to mention blow them up, shoot them down, and waterboard them at will.

I love these stalethinker farts from The Gazette! They called me up recently (3 weeks ago) and said that my subscription had expired several months ago, whereupon I replied let it be so! I’m still getting the staleness though? What should I do, tell them that I shall sue them unless they pay me for delivery to my house of their rag? I feel like I am ecologically personally destroying the planet by allowing this stalemate to continue. Adverts for Kohls, Safeway, Kroger, and Albertsons be damned! I don’t got religion like the stalethinkers at The Gazette do!

Tattoos and Ayn Rand Thought

gazette.jpg ———– The Gazette editorialist got out his little Ayn Rand ‘Atlas Shrugged’ book last Monday, waved it in the air, and pronounced it a good thing that El Paso County (Big Bad Government!) was no longer going to inspect tattoo parlors in the area. This is the same nut case at the paper that is all ‘for the troops’. Well, who does he think goes to many of these tattoo parlors? Well, it is the troops, Sir.

The Gazette is run my a bunch of sad sack ideologues who are always against Big Government, except when Big, Big, BIG GOVERNMENT is destroying somebody else’s country and making Big, Big, BIG BUSINESS a killing in tax payer paid government contracts. But when it comes to protecting the troops from getting AIDS or Hepatitis at the tattoo parlor, well The Gazette is against the County checking out the sanitation there! Sick. See below…

SELF-POLICING TATTOO JOINTS
Don’t involve county in body art

You walk into Bob’s Tattoos seeking service. You want a bone through your nose and the Virgin Mary etched into your arm. Something’s not right. You’re struck by the stench of kitty litter and other strange smells. You’re introduced to 300-pound Bob, the parlor’s founding partner and managing artist. Bob wears a grubby muscle shirt and Dolfin shorts to show off his own tattoos. They don’t look so good, but that’s OK because Bob explains he got them in prison, and not at Bob’s Tattoos. What do you do?

A. Look for a certificate from the county that says Bob’s OK to pierce your nose and jam ink into your skin.

B. Leave, and do some research. Speak with multiple peers with good body art, and ask them which parlors do it best. Find a reputable shop, check it through the Better Business Bureau, and then personally assess the risks.

Unless you’re ultra brave, the correct answer is “B.” After all, even Bob’s Tattoos could look good on the day of a county inspection. And even a once-good tattoo business can go downhill after getting a stamp of approval from the county.

The right tattoo on the right part of the right person can be a fine thing. But good, safe results aren’t something the county can or should try to ensure. If ever there were an activity in which the buyer must beware, it’s the business of shopping for body art.

The mere fact that so-called painful cuts to El Paso County’s budget involve the elimination of tattoo parlor inspections indicates fiscal excess. The health department has no legitimate reason for spending nearly $30,000 annually to inspect tattoo parlors.

It’s not in question that dirty body art tools can lead to infection and disease. But nobody is required to commission a tattoo, and the majority of citizens never do. It’s a risk anyone can easily avoid by simply choosing against body art. Those who do seek tattoos and such ought to be responsible for assessing the risks themselves. The tattoo-free public shouldn’t be forced to subsidize needless, private, elective bodily expressions.

The county’s Board of Health plans to vote Wednesday on whether to permanently eliminate inspections, and most certainly they should. Tattoo artists are organizing to converge on the meeting, however, urging the county to maintain inspections.

The fact that responsible tattoo parlors favor county inspections isn’t surprising. An approval certificate is like a valuable reward for good, clean practices. The inspection requirement creates a layer of bureaucracy that serves as a hurdle to entry. It dissuades cheap, startup fly-by-night operators from wanting to set up shop and compete. It also eases concerns of customers who might otherwise ask lots of questions or chicken out of getting tattooed.

Tattoo artists, however, don’t need government to give them a useful stamp of approval. Reputations speak for themselves, and stamps of approval are best obtained through private associations of professionals. Free publications that sell advertising, for example, pay private auditing associations to verify circulations. Without the audit, it’s hard to compete. Lawyers join private associations, such as the American Bar Association, that enforce standards on members and offer assurances to customers. Good tattoo artists, if they wish to separate themselves from the riffraff, need to form a credible organization that sells a stamp of approval to those who qualify.

No stamp of approval, however, should weigh in too heavily when it comes to letting someone inject ink beneath your skin. Few transactions require more personal information and diligence than the purchase of a tattoo. Good, safe tattoos aren’t something the county can or should guarantee. Nothing can replace the ages old advice: Buyer beware. Besides, tattoos are free-spirited expressions of individuality. Don’t involve the county in what’s otherwise a solid act of rebellion.

Community should learn to welcome immigrants

Imagine my surprise today, to open up The Gazette and see the Metro section of the paper with a column by opinion writer Barry Noreen titled “Community should learn to welcome immigrants.” I have read this paper for two years now and had not yet found any commentary by its opinion writers that I agreed with 100%. And here it was at last!

Noreen spotlighted the efforts of Megumi Nakamura and others in the community to befriend immigrants coming into the US, rather than to persecute them. Reminds me kind of the All- American holiday Thanksgiving even, where American immigrants made an annual meal to thank those that were kind and gave them assistance. For Megumi, everyday should be Thanksgiving American style, rather than persecution American style with ICE, which is the new name La Migra has given to itself.

One thing missing from the commentary though, was any thought that most immigrants are fleeing from countries that our own US government has Big Time helped mess up. Fact is, our own government is all over the world right now, messing up the lives of other peoples. It has been this way for decades now, too. So we should try to stop allowing government officials to do that so that maybe we would have less poor people entering our US Borders looking for a new life, for their families and their kids. And we should learn to welcome those that do enter meantime.

Barry Noreen, thank you for being brave and bucking the Far Right trend over at The Gazette. It was a brave thing to have written the column the way you did. Thanks.

SUV sales crash, oil up, GM on verge of going under

I just put a bumper sticker on my car that states simply that ‘America needs an oil change’. That’s code for America needs a policy change on energy issues, which won’t be easy, because the US is still run by THE STUPIDS.

Take our press full of dimwit papers like our own local Colorado Springs Gazette. At the Gazette, they are still into denial about Global Warming, climate change,, and declining world energy supplies. They are sill pushing for unrestricted suburban sprawl, unrestricted Pentagon-military-industrial welfare, and maximum consumerism. ‘What crisis?’ is their motto, which is reminiscent of Alfred E. Newman’s line ‘What me worry?’ Reading the Gazette is a little like reading Mad Magazine, except they’re not joking and really believe the madness they push!

Meanwhile, nobody can unload their lead balloons, the SUVs of America. Detroit is going under (I know that we thought it already was under, but..) big time, and all THE STUPIDS can do is plan a war against Iran! What geniuses they are!

America needs an Oily Dick change, but is the new one of Oily Barack going to be much better? America stands by with their thumbs up their butts hoping so, but the future looks grim, since THE STUPIDS are still running the entire show. That would be the business men.

Pro-militarism Gazette puff pieces have helped endanger GI lives

The Colorado Springs Gazette is always promoting military contractors and pushing for more warfare to keep that weapons industry moving, and has done this hiding behind the great pretense that they supposedly only care about American troops. That’s their big lie and many readers fall for it.

But let us look for a moment at KBR, one of those war profiteers that The Gazette has done puff pieces in their paper for previously in the not so distant past. KBR is in the press now once again for their company policy of having deliberately exposed American soldiers to toxic chemicals that are deadly fatal. See The Boston Globes recent article titled Witnesses link chemical to ill US soldiers

So cut back to The Gazette’s puff piece for KBR titled WORKING FAR FROM HOME By the way, KBR is actually the name of Halliburton these days, the company Dick Cheney came from. Notice how The Gazette puffed for these guys in 2001 like they were God’s gift to America. We in Colorado Springs need to expose the lying propaganda of The Gazette, and point out how it helped expose American soldiers to deadly poisons. What a sorry ass newspaper!

Protesters forget thinking cap stamina

COLORADO SPRINGS- Such an unfortunate characterization of the J&P.
Gazette reported 5/29/2008- WAR PROTESTERS BAIL EARLY
In the Gazette coverage of the Air Force Academy graduation, the paper featured this teaser on the front page: “War protesters bail early.” The article on page 8 began: “Air Force Academy cadets apparently are made of sterner stuff.” We can’t deny “while the cadets and their families sat through the early morning fog and drizzle, war protesters left rather than wait for the late-arriving President Bush,” but Springs activists rarely show anything but tenacity in making their point. Why would they leave early and give the media such a predictable pot shot? Do we chalk it up exclusively to our antagonistic local daily newspaper?

While it might be unfair to compare the brawn of military officers to that of septuagenarian activists, I fear this was a test of brains, and the space cadets came out on top.

The AFA had announced that President Bush was expected at 9am. His motorcade not having turned up by then prompted diverse deductions: he might have sneaked through another entrance, he might have choppered in, or he might have been called away to emergency affairs of state. Activists might also have become discouraged by the diminishing flow of cars into the event. A lack of passersby is the surest way to take the wind out of a protester’s banner. But the number of incoming having petered to nil would have been the giveaway to Bush’s impending arrival.

A presidential motorcade along an interstate has few escape routes, and so cannot begin before all vehicles have been cleared from its course. Escorts block all on-ramps over 30 minutes before to ensure the procession will encounter nothing to threaten its pace. That the AFA gates were advertised as open to attendees until 9:30am puts to lie the suggestion that Bush was expected by nine. The path would not have been unencumbered until the later time. Indeed police did not begin emptying the interstate until after nine. The motorcade sped into the North Gate by 9:45. Bush was not due to speak until eleven.

Did the protesters lose heart and/or heat? I think what the participants forfeited was thinking for themselves. Through the PPJPC, activists let the AFA relegate demonstrations to the minimally visible North Gate, and they let the AFA misinform them about Bush’s ETA. Compound this to the lukewarm organizing effort and contradictory announcements of the action plans. It’s hard to see how the J&P could have done worse if they’d tried. Low turnout, TV interviews of unprepared interviewees, and the rag-tag bunch ultimately offering the Gazette a pithy swipe at their capitulated spirit.

These are otherwise very determined activists. Usually their self-sacrifice does not include their very mission.

Protesters miss late-arriving Bush

Air Force Academy cadets apparently are made of sterner stuff than anti-war protesters.

While the cadets and their families sat through the early morning fog and drizzle, anti-war protesters left rather than wait for a late-arriving President Bush.

By the time Bush, whose motorcade was behind schedule, passed through the North Gate, a solitary protester – carrying a sign reading, “War is not the answer” and flashing a peace symbol – was all that remained of a band of 20 people who planned to greet the president.

The rest cleared out amid slate-gray skies before the president pulled past the gate at 9:45 p.m., 45 minutes after his scheduled arrival.

South of the academy, five other protesters stood on a hillside overlooking Interstate 25 near the Fillmore exit and unfurled a cryptic message.

Their 50-foot long banner read, “Mene Mene Tekel Upharsin,” an Aramaic phrase meaning, “It has been counted and counted, weighed and divided.”

The biblical figure Daniel interpreted the so-called “writing on the wall” as a judgment against the king Belshazaar, determining that his acts had been weighed and found deficient and that his kingdom would be divided.

“We wanted to speak to him in a language he purports to listen to, which is the Bible,” said Eric Verlo. “It was a great location for the motorcade to see us.”
