Waldo Canyon Wildfire gives Colorado Springs a front range seat to war zone movie set, says Governor Hickenlooper


COLORADO SPRINGS- Governor Hickenlooper made the remark after touring the Waldo Canyon Fire by helicopter. After touching down on the grounds of Coronado High School, cleared mid-press-conference because it fell in the freshly designated evacuation area, the governor said the wildfire resembled the movie set of a military invasion. Predictably the media clipped his observation to just “movie set”, adding the fire chief’s “epic” and “historic”. President Obama is expected to visit the disaster zone on Friday. I wonder if he’ll match our governor’s candor. He is certainly in the position to say whether our present horror is any match for the devastation unleashed by our invasions. Perhaps he can tell us the fire’s equivalency in drone strikes. Is 100 homes a week’s worth? If President Obama wanted to be partisan about it (pretending his Democratic Party was the antiwar party) he might suggest that conservative war-mongering, race-baiting, climate-denying Colorado Springs had this front range seat coming. Unless sentimentally doused in prayer-sharing reverence, our local disaster, with Governor Hickenlooper’s unedited comment, could be an empathy-learning moment.

They set themselves up for this…

MMMMM… my favorite dish… Chickenhawk Supreme. So we spent the 1970s and ’80s enduring some truly nauseating propaganda flicks, mostly on the order of “We could have won VietNam, if only” and a long string of excuses that even though the country was bombed repeatedly, one accounting of it is that there was more aerial bombardment of VietNam (south, not that it matters, we weren’t at war with either the south or the north) than was used on Japan in World War 2.
I can’t vouch for that but we sure are paying a lot of money, still, for all the expended ordnance… even with that “our hands were tied and we couldn’t do all the damage we wanted to do” say WHUUUTT? But we didn’t unleash Steven Seagal or Sly Stallone or John Wayne or Ah-nuld Governater or Walker, Texas Ranger on them.

And of course the Red Dawn farce, (still gets replayed on Cable TV) (no, really, people with enough IQ to work a remote control actually WATCH that crap… voluntarily) and in anticipation of our eventual losses in MesoAmerica, (Grenada has once again voted itself Marxist, Cuba is still Marxist, Castro is still alive, Daniel Ortega is still in government office in Nicaragua, and the only Government Leaders who were killed or imprisoned were “our” allies, like Manny Noriega and the Medellin Cartel bosses…)
Now Fox, the Roosting Place of so much of America’s Finest flock of ChickenHawk, is remaking the 1985 movie “Commando” And announced it on the anniversary of the Fall of Saigon. Coincidence?

Perhaps to create and recreate the delusional illusion that America Really Won in VietNam, MesoAmerica, and now, Iraq and Afghanistan. Since delusions of Victory are all they have to sell, can one really blame them?
Well, Hell yes, I can! These FreakTards have been, and their ideological Fellow Travelers spanning nearly 6 1/2 decades as well, pushing war after undeclared war on the rest of the World in the name of Uncle Sugar and for the benefit of their Corporate Whoremasters ever since the final day of World War 2, SHAME!

There hasn’t been a single declaration of War by the Congress of the United States since December of 1941. There also hasn’t been a single day gone by that a shot was not fired in anger by at least one American soldier acting under orders. Not a single day without American war-mongering.

They compound their aggressively Evil Agenda by refusing, themselves, to participate in the wars they create and prolong. And refuse, to a “man”, to pay a fair share of their so-called “earnings”, the Blood Money they obtain from promoting having Other Human Beings Murdered, in taxes. Billionaires like Rush Limbaugh and Rupert Murdoch and Bill O’Reilly, lesser “stars” like Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity, who don’t make as much as O’Reilly and Limbaugh, (yet) Still take home more pay in a year than a construction WORKER could ever hope to make in a couple of decades of Real Work.

What would be an appropriate amount of money for ass-hats such as these fine fellows to pay? ALL of it. Every penny, and then be forced to work serving the people who are maimed or widowed or orphaned by their Outrageous Lying Pro-War Propaganda. Restitution for their entire lives.

It would be the first and only honorable thing any of them ever did in his misspent life.
