You fascist, loofah-faced, shit-gibbon!

When Donald Trump says he’s gotten no calls about the Dakota Access or Keystone XL pipelines saying “Apparently they’re not controversial” he’s trolling you. Making taunts with easily refutted falsehoods is the definition of trolling. But two billion smartphones can … Continue reading

Facebook’s Zuckerman sues neighbors to sell him their land in Hawaii

OK not as drastic as the US annexation of Hawaii, a sovereign nation, by a “response to abuse of U.S. business citizens” just like the annexation of Panama, Cuba, Puerto Rico, The Philippine Islands, the Portuguese and British occupation of … Continue reading

She thinks she’s above the law… pots and kettles?

I’m having a little issue with consumerism/marketing

As is everybody. I don’t watch TV very attentively. But it’s still there and a loving God in His infinite wisdom and mercy somehow neglected to give me earlids, so I can’t insulate myself from it and still remain in … Continue reading

Even the Pope doesn’t want Trump. Uh, who is more status quo than the Pope?

When is the last time the corporate media was on your side? The fact that every news pundit opposes Donald Trump’s candidacy should indicate the real threat his election bid poses to the powers that be. Consider too that you … Continue reading

“United For Global Change” is Madison Ave dilution of “Global Democracy” cry. Oct 15 not for Obameaningless change

UNITED FOR GLOBAL CHANGE certainly smacks of the meaningless slogan that swept President Hope to power. My guess is that this is Advertizer Omnicom’s contract PR redesign to subvert the worldwide Global Democracy movement sparked by Spain’s Indignant rebels and … Continue reading

From Syntagma Square to Wall Street, the people want their money back!

Will occupying the streets Sept 17, Oct 6 and 15 precipitate an American Fall?

“American Fall” would be a pun, yes. A pan-Arabian-like Spring causing the US anti-democracy to tumble, being the objective. The English riots have put a dark spin on what might be Middle America’s reception to popular uprising, but mark the … Continue reading
