Hatred and terrorism at the Social Security offices

I was there today about my pending SSI. We had a bit of a wait getting in, Security guards were letting in only a few at a time, after enough had left out. When I got in, 5 minutes before … Continue reading

Occupy chants

OCCUPIED DENVER- So we got a little bored with Saturday’s march, the white-bread marchers being kept to three chants, (99%, Democracy & Our Streets). Parade marshals insisted procession not overtake a fat woman in a wheelchair, preventing the march from … Continue reading

Ballot Caging and the real difference between D and R

The R’s don’t want people to vote. More people politically active, means they lose. Very simple. You might ask yourself Self, what’s the worst that could happen? What’s the difference between a D and an R? What real difference does … Continue reading

From last Friday’s action, some pictures, some linked commentary

The linked commentary isn’t about the bus lack-of-service, it’s to fellow local activist Loren Wirbel made a short documentary film just showing a FEW of the multi-gazillionaire “defense” plants around town. You know the ones, our Magnificently Superior Business Experts … Continue reading

News sources, MSM and the mouths of horses…

See, we constantly get told, on this site and any other site that opposes the wars and the occupations and such, that we’re listening to the “Liberal Mainstream Media”. Huh? The most frequently criticized “Liberal” media are as rabid a … Continue reading

Furkan Dogan was no Leon Klinghoffer, (nor Abu Abbas, ergo no press for him)

Interesting that when Palestinians hijack a passenger ship, and kill one person, it’s quite a different story than when the Israelis pirate a ship and kill nine, even when one is an American. We remember the Achille Lauro, and the … Continue reading

“Warrior” drops peacekeeping pretense

COLO. SPRINGS- Just down the street, all week, the Olympic Training Center hosts the Warrior Games, a Special Olympics for wounded vets. And there it is. Not injured peace- keepers, not disabled freedom-bringers, not usurpers of foreign lives and liberty … Continue reading

The face of the health insurance lobby

Nurse Ratched, to my imagination, was the most despised movie villainess of all time. She didn’t murder anyone, but by the sheer frigidity of her indifference, Nurse Ratched caused debilitating anxiety and heart-break. She’s my nominee for the face of … Continue reading

On the subject of remote kontrol killing

I occasionally raise this extremely bad example from its Undead Crypt. There is, to paraphrase the Tee Shirts, A Ranch in Texas that’s missing its ass-kicking, and I really should go back down there and help them find it. It … Continue reading

Falling onto the sky….

Hairy Christmas and a Hippie New Year. People popping off fireworks and the occasional firearm, making the poor stupid little dog next door bark insanely. Ok, headphones on, music, relaxing ahhhh… Anyhow, these are some of the jewelry pictures. So, … Continue reading

Verifying the Sarah Palin Chronicles

Sarah Palin is probably like most people, she’d rather her medical records remain confidential. Most of us resist even the indignity of taking a drug test to qualify for a job. But executive level positions require the insurance of a … Continue reading

Is Bush problem drinking still a secret?

We learned only after Roosevelt’s presidency that he had to be propped-up for photo-ops because FDR was otherwise confined to a wheelchair. The American public learned only after Ronald Reagan retired that he suffered from Alzhemers for most of his … Continue reading

A soldier gets home, walks into a bar…

Soldiers like to joke that they are more manly than war opponents. That would be correct if you accept the chief attribute of manly men being stupidity. Of course going off to war gives soldiers plenty of further attributes, or should I say, fewer? Continue reading

The Stiles Unit of Beaumont

The Stiles Unit of Beaumont… I actually worked there once… That’s where I saw torture being done on prisoners INSIDE THE US first hand. “Cadarell Freeman was to leave prison in September 2000. He had walked into prison, but now … Continue reading

Policing by America’s Reich

Last week it was news about a woman named Hope in New York, whose cousin had called the police because another cousin had sexually molested her. When the police came they ended up arresting the victim, taking her to jail, … Continue reading

Strong as steel and aircraft aluminum

Like Wonderbread before they were compelled to retract the false advertising claim, the Army builds healthy bodies 24 different ways. There are actually more permutations of disability defined by which limbs have been lost or paralyzed. If you think “healthy” … Continue reading

Dead, in concert, the King!

Strange title, grabs you. I get to that later on. What prompted me on this was a couple of days ago there was a statement from Steve Irwins widow, about the Death Tape being destroyed. There has been a lot … Continue reading

A Veterans Day wheelchair parade

This year’s Colorado Springs Veteran’s Day Parade falls on Veteran’s Day. The theme is “a nation at war, a community of support.” Doesn’t sound much to do with honoring veterans. Are we holding an active-duty support-the-war parade on honor-the-Veteran’s Day? … Continue reading

Support your local war memorial

Is this your way to show support for the troops? To keep their sacrifices unseen from their countrymen and their city? Why are you so quick to send them off, to fight a war on foreign soil, and so quick to hide the cost they’ve paid or will pay? Continue reading

Prizefight fixed

We are watching a prizefight. Bush is swaggering and staggering around with his arms in the air having declared himself winner before the bell has rung, as he’s done through every round. This time he’s looking deliriously vulnerable. He’s got … Continue reading

Veteran’s Day parade, part 1

I should say that I had never watched a veteran’s parade, I think. Wasn’t it supposed to be a parade of veterans? This was a parade of mostly active duty soldiers and soldiers-to-be. It was very disturbing. There was a … Continue reading

The army builds men

When our forces were amassing on the Iraqi border, a friend of mine lamented that a war in Iraq was going to mean a generation of amputee vets. She ‘d seen the Vietnam years and its casualties. I thought she … Continue reading
