Of course it was the 7th cavalry at Nogun Ri

Even the rightest wing-est extremist in Texas don’t hold a candle to Some Colorado Wingnuts, the ones who call Natives “prairie niggers” or “wagon burners”, especially when any negative reviews of the Seventh Cavalry massacres. Like Wounded knee, a vengeance … Continue reading

Wounded Warrior project, hear this:

I wanted to invent…

From an Air Force recruiters commercial, and it shows the raw futility of going into military bondage with some starry eyed ideas about what you want to accomplish. Because Military Organizations don’t give a fig about anything other than killing. … Continue reading

General Wall Street Mad-Dog

Trump’s nominee for Secretary of something or another important bureaucracy. And supports more wars. Trump gonna stop the wars WHEN? Not our lifetime, according to their schedule. This comes at a cost. So much for Fiscal Conservatives. They must mean … Continue reading

Agent Orange Blues

Recently Monsanto did for Bayer what Dupont and Dow had done to Monsanto and each other in a massive flustercluck. Passed the ball. Can’t play on one field anymore so they take the ball to another stadium. That’s a horrible … Continue reading

Obama calls for allegedly “proportional” retaliations for ALLEGED hacking of Election.

Let’s get this clear. Pots and Kettles. The US has meddled in or outright overturned elections so many times even people who are paid to sit at desks monitoring and counting them can’t keep up. Bolivia: a coup by Luis … Continue reading

Not sabre rattling, not a surprise and didn’t start in October.

The war mongers, the ones who make money from the death of others, aren’t rattling sabres. They’re already bombing Syria, Libya, Iraq, every damn day. And it’s been going on for a while. The sham “election” in which we’re told … Continue reading

Outside Agitators, anybody care to bet?

There’s more to the story than a southern Sheriff saying (I was going to write it in redneck patois, but it didn’t work) “our nigras were perfectly happy with segregation until all these Outside Agitators come down stirring things up.” … Continue reading

This is my only-one-cup-of-coffee morning rant.

Independence Day

Not quite the July 4th holiday. More like the commercial hit movie of that name about an Alien Invasion being repulsed, from 1996. For those unable to do simple math, that’s 20 years ago. So The Army (which army? you … Continue reading
