April 7th, Let Us All Set Colorado Springs on Fire!

-- Local selections are coming up, and we shall see an obscenity take place once again as local Colorado Springs ...ugh.. 'pragmatists' move into inaction in mass. YES! -We know their game plan here, as it will be 'voting for the supposed lesser of 2 evils' time once again for America's most clueless political lemmings. The Democratic Party morons who always call themselves 'liberals' and 'progressives' will be voting for who they see as the lesser of evils in our beloved Fort Springs. And who will that be? LMAO at their idiocy.... It will be for a registered Republican! It's just so very very ironic really.... 42164

Springs Democrats hope democracy loses to State Senator John Morse

COLORADO SPRINGS, CO- International news headlines read "G-20 Summit Overshadowed by Syrian Crisis" but not in Colorado Springs! Here every politically active Democrat was working to defeat a recall of state senate leader John Morse, a democrat though barely. Morse is a duly elected, if unlikely, representative of conservative El Paso County, being assailed by a mutinous GOP majority angered by his stewarding of gun control legislation. The NRA has backed a blitzkrieg recall campaign, aided by local Republican officials and judges who connived election parameters designed to coax a recall victory. But who's on the side of right, presumably with the people? 39354

Democrats prepared to beat up on the elderly with their buddies, the Republicans

~~~ We could see this a long time coming... Obama 'offering to cut US pensions' for deficit deal ...Time to kick both parties to the side and stop that 'Kiss me I'm a liberal (Democrat) bullshit. In fact, it's way past the time to have done so. Neither Democrat nor Republican come the next round of corporate ruling class (s)elections! Voting for these people is like putting a bullet to your head. This country can hardly be called a democracy at all.

Just another normal day in USA-run Dictatorship Honduras

Yesterday was a selection day in the USA-run coup made Honduras. Top Honduran parties chose presidential candidates ....But what did the day really look like though? See Death Squads, Swastikas and "Medieval Methods" of Torture Honduras Post-Coup Elections by CHARLES HINTON for a better glimpse of life in Tegucigalpa, the Honduran capital.

Young people have abandoned any HOPE for CHANGE about Obama

Obama's 'pragmatic' reactionary values has lost him the enthusiasm that the youth once showed for him. As a result he might just lose to a complete loser of a candidate that the Republicans stuck themselves with. Incredible that such a creep as Mitt Romney might soon be in charge of the Empire.... an Empire that borders on the psychotic now. America where the only value given by 'our leaders' is to the dollar sign... Not that it matters any, about the national presidential election, since the Democrats and Republicans work hand in hand together against the American people anyway. We would have to get rid of both these rotten corporate groupings to get rid of either party for good. It's just Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum on the see-saw as it is now. See: Obama looks to young voters, many of whom seem uninspired. Most young voters, like those in the battleground state of Colorado, back Obama, but fewer of them seem inclined to cast ballots compared with 2008.

The road to victory in Venezuela! Comparing Chavez to Obama…

Here is a post electoral review of the Chavez campaign leading up to his reelection earlier this month in Venezuela: Venezuela, camino a la Victoria. Oct/2012 And now, a look at the sad campaign of Barack Obama here in the US: First Presidential Debate: Obama vs. Romney. Democracy really does not exist in the US, does it?

There was nothing much on that mail-in ballot we got

Last night we filled in our mail-in ballots, and there was nothing much there at all. Many of the 'races' to vote on we just left blank because all the candidates paying their money to run were only Right Winger party candidates. Election races all bought by money make for basically very empty ballots without any real meaning to them. I wondered whether it was worth putting 65 cents on the envelopes to mail them in? I'm still debating in my mind that big question. This isn't really democracy, is it?

The Mitt Romney Campaign versus Honey Boo Boo

Mitt Romney is kind of the Honey Boo Boo of the American ruling class, so lets put the two shows up against each other and judge who will win the election by how long each and every registered voter can watch episodes of the 2 respective shows? Democrats will probably all watch Honey Boo Boo for far far longer than they will be able to tolerate watching Mitt Romney commercials. Republicans will most probably watch Honey Boo Boo only a couple of seconds until they head over to the other TV with Fox News reports about how cute Mitt and family are. From this scientific basis of this 'poll', we should be able to predict who will be winner of the US elections! Go to Honey Boo Boo Land to watch endless episodes of this program sandwiched in between commercials. Go to Fox News to see endless episodes of the Mitt Romney Show sandwiched and marketed as football commentaries, bad programming, and commercials for Mitt Romney. Now.... how much of each (Boo Boo vs Romney) could you tolerate? Cast your vote, Americans! Mitt vs Boo Boo?

Chavez has double-digit lead going into Venezuela’s election this Sunday

Yes, Hugo Chavez is still popular in Venezuela precisely because conditions have improved during his time in office. The US corporate media is calling it 'a close race' despite the polls mainly showing quite the contrary? Why? Because the pro US government opposition to Chavez plans to scream fraud no matter how bad they actually lose, and the US and international corporate and government backers of regime change in Venezuela want to verbally back up the Right Wing's hysteria no matter what? Why wouldn't Hugo Chavez be ahead in the race? His opponent is even more creepy and slimy than Mitt Romney is here in the US, while Chavez is no Barack Obomber. Venezuelan President Hugo Chvez on the election trail. He is expected to win again, but has pledged to abide by the popular vote.

US puppet in Georgia gets dumped from power

Remember Mikheil Saakashvili, US puppet guy in Georgia who decided to war it out with the Russians with John McCain and other of that USA Empire ilk cheering him on? He just got dumped out of office by the people of Georgia, who did not take too kindly to him bankrupting his country by going to war for the US Empire. Not that the guy who is replacing him might be any great shakes either... Winner of Georgian election to visit US first Read more here: ..Plus, the people of Georgia still have to put up with another year of Saakashvili still remaining in office.

Yet a fourth term of Clintonism? Why US liberalism is bankrupt and without any bailout that would work for it

The Democratic Party has reduced our supposed US corporate financed and run 'democracy' down over the last quarter of a century down to whether we are all led by our throats to another 4 years of Country Bush and sons, or 4 more years of Slick Family Clinton, or not? That's it. That's what you get for 'leadership'. You will be persuaded one way or the other by corporate advertising to choose Pepsi or Coke, depending on which image pulls your heart strings the most? Gurgle-Gurgle..... Gasp!!!!!! 'Your Vote' doesn't really get counted when it is left to Pepsi and Coke to do the count. 37140

Americans are feeling increasingly pessimistic about their future says Poll

'When it comes to the economy, half of Americans in a new poll say it won't matter much whether Barack Obama or Mitt Romney wins.'   Well sure it makes no difference which of these two parties wins. Both of their 'candidates' are from the same corporatocracy misleadership that rules over the American people in a most undemocratic manner. The sad thing about it, is that if the poll had asked these same 50% of people polled, they would probably all have said they were living in a democracy. However, in a true democracy it does make a difference who wins unlike with our US ruling class selections every four years. When Americans wake up and understand that we have no democracy in this corporate dictatorship, only then can this country begin to move towards changing our conditions. Not until then. A lesser of two evils mindset is simply not going to get the job done. See Poll: Election winner won't affect economy much.

Will Egyptian military dictatorship say now their candidate won the election?

First the Egyptian military brokered a deal with the Muslim Brotherhood, where the Left candidate was pushed off and out of the runoff. The Muslim Brotherhood seemed to think that they were then going to be allowed to SHARE power with the US-made military monster that has ruled Egypt for decades, hiding the generals' rule behind Mubarak, the now dying ex-dictator. 34772

Mega Agro-industry US style has helped destroy Mexico’s countryside and led to ‘Drug War’ battlefield deaths

US style mega- corporate agriculture has been pushed onto Mexico rural area for decades now, and as a result tens of millions upon tens of millions of Mexicans have been left destitute in areas that once flourished with small agricultural towns. The rural poverty is much more severe than what these policies led to in rural USA, which certainly also were left devastated in many cases. Where to turn to to make a living? 34614

How much does Occupy not believe in elections? Enough to boycott them?

Pundits, even friendlies, are infecting the Occupy Movement with direction-waylaying cynicism, so I'll tell you what I think Occupy should do next. Never mind the usual grievances, leave those to existing advocacy groups, although they do benefit from Occu-proding obviously. No matter what you think Occupy Wall Street's core issue was, by definition OWS asserted our system of governance was broken, our regime is not responsive, not representative, and immovable by the conventional permitted mechanisms. So right now, which bankrupt democratic mechanism is being paraded before us, taunting a debunking from Occupy? We've been paying it lip service already: the fraud of our electoral process. Isn't it time Occupy said DON'T VOTE? Don't dignify Election 2012 with your buy-in, undignify it with a vote of no confidence. I don't mean merely not vote, let's Get Out The No Vote! Now wouldn't that separate the men from the Dems! 34662

Despair sets in in Egypt

The Obama Administration and the Egyptian military have brokered a deal with the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, and all is despair with the Egyptian population as their revolution in process has now seemingly been subverted. A supposed 'Arab Spring' has been turned into an 'Arab Fall', as the US government hopes to push the Arab people internationally back into yet another continuation of a US run 'Arab Winter', where the Israeli Jewish Apratheid State and US and Western Imperialism run the region and deplete the area of its oil.

Dueling election rallies in Venezuela

The world corporate media claims that Hugo Chavez's opponent for the October presidential election had hundreds of thousands of people rally for their candidate on Sunday. I even saw one report claim that it was a rally of 1,000,000 people against Chavez. But the same media is basically staying quiet about the rally one day later of Chavez supporters, where it is said in reports that only 'thousands attended' and that Chavez looked 'swollen' and still sick. However no matter how many rallied for who though, what remains is that Chavez is far ahead of his competitor according to the polls. It seems that even a still sickly Chavez is preferred by the majority of the poorer portion of the population in Venezuela over a healthy and obnoxious, 39 y/o pretty boy of the upper middle class candidate, the Seorito Henrique Capriles.

Wisconsin election close, but no cigar, if there was a cigar

The recall defeat in Wisconsin brings to mind Emma Goldman's famous adage: "If voting changed anything, they'd make it illegal." Now we'll never know if a Democrat majority in Madison would have behaved any different than a herd of Republicans. I doubt it. Activists are patting themselves on the back for their partial success, saying the effort was worth it, which is the usual consolation for losers, and ignores the fact that many of Wisconsin's present Democratic Party legislators already betray their constituents. Here's another quote, by a Japanese engineering professor I had in college who used to say in broken English: "You build bridge. It fall down. No partial credit." Imagine what he'd have thought of a bridge to nowhere.

So-called Free Market Capitalism doesn’t pay its bills

It instead leeches off Tax-supported Publicly paid enterprises like the Army and Police agencies, not coincidentally the only agencies they want to be continued to have Public Funding...Allow the wealthiest to not pay taxes on money they obtained through blatantly aggressive Government Interventions in the so-called "free" markets by using publicly funded Soldiers to take over any of the competing trade partnerships aka "Sovereign Nations" by extreme violence or the threat thereof. 20222

Refudiating the misunderestimation of Sarah Palin

Even my Democrat friends are tired of apologizing for their party. They can point to nothing they and Obama have accomplished that's reason enough to rally for Democrats in November, EXCEPT the specter of Sarah Palin. Ya think? --because I don't. There may be American voters who prefer to elect a president they can drink a beer with, but in the feminine that's going to be a Budweiser Girl. My apologies to feminists, but Bush's dumbfuck shtick from the mouth of a woman comes across as a shrew. Palin's invention of "refudiate" is no funnier than a common Bushism. It's a sign her writers think they can crib the Bush playbook, but this time for a bogeyman, I think they misunderestimate the American public.

Howard Zinn, historian of mainstream

"If you work through the existing structures you are going to be corrupted. By working through a political system that poisons the atmosphere, even the progressive organizations, you can see it even now in the US, where people on the Left are all caught in the electoral campaign and get into fierce arguments about should we support this third party candidate or that third party candidate. This is a sort of little piece of evidence that suggests that when you get into working through electoral politics you begin to corrupt your ideals. So I think a way to behave is to think not in terms of representative government, not in terms of voting, not in terms of electoral politics, but thinking in terms of organizing social movements, organizing in the work place, organizing in the neighborhood, organizing collectives that can become strong enough to eventually take over first to become strong enough to resist what has been done to them by authority, and second, later, to become strong enough to actually take over the institutions." --Howard Zinn, Anarchist, in 2008 AK Press interview 14126

Another Made-in-USA fake elections day for an occupied country

US elites never seem to get tired of their fake election days. Today, it was nonstop coverage of their Afghan elections on National Imperialist Radio, (otherwise known as NPR). I call these elections fake because they are run by an imperialist occupying force that doesn't even have the ability to speak the native tongue, let alone have any valid reason for occupying Afghanistan. The yakity yaks on NPR and other corporate channels don't have even the slightest clue of what's going on, yet in their doting coverage of these fake elections made for the US-made Hellistan it was nonstop pretense otherwise. 8450

Republican Party of El Salvador to lose its throne this Sunday

The Republican Party of El Salvador (ARENA), just like the Republican Party of the US, is a party of the death squads. As such, they have ruled for 20 years after inheriting the defeat of the Salvadoran Revolution by the US government. See about their coming loss of throne in this Sunday's elections.
