Must Be Nice......

No wonder the people in Congress (who get LIFE TIME pensions and free health care from serving just ONE term) can, with no detectable empathy, propose deep cuts in social services to the citizenry they wrest taxes from "to help cut the deficit" while expanding the already obscene military "defense" budget that expands Empire vs. actually defending our nation. Check out the link below about our "public servants" in Congress and the family budgets they struggle to live within.

They make these proposals as millions of Americans do their best to be frugal, including gardening at home and joining community gardens to try to insure their families eat in these very difficult times. Since this is no longer a democratic republic but an oligarchy that has no moral qualms about sending our children off to their wars of choice for profit (while steadfastly avoiding the military service for them and theirs that they tell us is an "honor") while robbing and imprisoning us ( the "Land of The Free" has just 5% of the world's population but 25% of the prison population) perhaps it is time to take note of the "Arab Spring" and get their undivided attention.

 I bet they'd take note if next spring ALL middle class and lower class Americans "forget" to file their tax returns, or if we all withdrew all our funds from our bank accounts and stashed the cash safely, or if we discouraged our children from joining the military services that have VERY little to do with "protecting our freedoms" and that instead create vast numbers of "terrorists" around the world by making unprovoked land grabbing invasions and regime change possible.....George Bush did not personally invade Iraq.....hundreds of thousands of obedient US soldiers did. The shockingly amoral criminals of the Bush regime, instead of facing trials at home and abroad and justice and possible prison time WITH that 25%, instead got even richer plus book deals and taxpayer-provided lifetime pensions and "socialist" health care plans none of us could ever dream of. But heaven help the American caught enjoying the simple safe pleasures of the cannabis plant that our Founding Fathers enjoyed. (yup, Google it and read their personal letters).

I can only imagine how Thomas Jefferson and George Washington and Ben Franklin and more would be heartbroken if they could see how their brave dream has become a nightmare for hundreds of millions of people around the world, including here at home. More and more it seems to me that the time has come to emulate the non-violent social actions of Gandhi, Lennon and King before we lose our nation forever to a soulless, conscienceless, and incredibly spoiled plutocracy that seems virtually psychopathic in its lack of empathy for the people they govern and affect around Planet Earth.

I recently saw a quote I love although I forget who said it.....

"Garden as if your life depended on it, because it does".

My First Car

...was a 1957 Plymouth Belvedere that looked very much like this 1958 Plymouth. Cool push button transmission. It was the car I left home in in1972, leaving Tampa for Albuquerque. It overheated once in the desert but otherwise it was a gem. Like a fool I sold it to a guy who ended up driving if off a cliff just to see it crash...he and his buddy jumped out at the last minute. It's name was 'Blueh' as I had painted it blue with a brush and deep blue enamel paint...and my highschool friend Sally Newkirk always called it "Blueh" with the "h" added for effect. Before I left home I painted a giant white star on the trunk, glued a HUGE magazine photo of a movie star's lips (Liv Ulman?) to the inside of a side back window, then pulled out the back seat to make a mini-livingspace in back. Somewhere I have a pic of 'Blueh"....I should find and scan and post it. John

What Next.....Rape Victms Pay Their Rapists?

Is this guy fucking serious?!! The U.S. SUPPORTED SADDAM all those years...then decimated  the country under Bush, with over 1 million people dead.....and they should "pay us back" with cash?! I say waterboard this clown on some "reality show"  and send it straight to the people of Iraq as our first installment of payback to THEM. John

An e-mail to a local friend who said that the "Liberal Media" (yeah the same one instrumental to the Bush Regime lying America into TWO wars of choice for profit) goes after Sarah Palin etc. like a pitbull but ignores the transgressions of "left leaning" public figures. John

"Slip of the tongue is one thing.....being grossly informed is another. Sarah had to be informed that Africa is a continent not a country. She did not have a CLUE as to the substance of Paul Revere's ride. When she stated in that ludicrous "Creation Science" museum that the fossil on display (human footprint inside dino track) that this showed that the Earth was 4,000 years old and that humans lived with dinosaurs, she had to be informed those "fossils" have been being made in the area by locals for many years who sell them roadside to tourists. I watched her rant on and on on Fox News, over and over, that "Iraq can't be allowed to have nuclear weapons"..... not one Fox talking head asked "do you mean IRAN?". Or that recent Conservative, who in a lengthy talk told people that when they see "Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness" in the Constitution to keep reading;  he had to be informed that is in The Declaration of Independence. There is no excuse for such ignorance in people who habitually condescend to Liberals like me who actually make it a priority to be informed vs. parroting talk show hosts. Sarah has no substance...if she looked like Helen Thomas she'd still be in Wasilla running their formerly in the black budget even deeper into the red despite all the "Socialist" pork barrel money she got. I normally hate sexual insults, but time and again two phrases pop into mind when she tries to "enlighten America"......."bimbo" and "dumb c_ _t". I will never forgive McCain for unleashing her on America...but hey she is perfect for "Bread and Circuses" as the fabric of the nation continues the unravelling the Bush Regime willfully began.

As to the Liberal media ignoring Liberal fuck ups...they sure went after Clinton and Weiner for sex stuff, or the Obama birth certificate scam, Minister Wright, Pretty Boy John's affair, etc.

"An American Police State was inevitable once Americans let "their" government get away with 9/11. Americans are too gullible, too uneducated, and too jingoistic to remain a free people. As the Nazi leader Herman Goering said, "The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. Tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the peace-makers for lack of patriotism and for exposing the country to danger.

This is precisely what the Bush and Obama regimes have done. Americans, as a free people no longer exist."
