“If the Republican Party can run the nation for eight years and then have a national convention and not invite Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Colin Powell, Karl Rove and Tom Delay, you’re not a political movement, you’re the Witness Protection Program. Because let’s be real. If you’re trying to sell what the Republican Party can do for you, it’s best not to remind people of what its recent fuck-ups actually did TO YOU, especially during hurricane season”

The Beatles

I've long loved two songs from the 'Yellow Submarine' album that seem quite obscure....'Northern Song' and  
'It's All Too Much', both written primarily by George Harrison. The second link is to the end of the movie and 'It's All Too Much'. Enjoy!

I usually think that calling woman a cunt is in poor taste

....but not in this situation. What a cunt.

http://www.latimes.com/business/money/la-fi-mo-richest-woman-20120830,0,3323996.story

While helping my 82 year old wonderful neighbor Theresa with her gardens today I was reminded that, while I've had a great many really cool Christians of differing "brands" in my life over the years, those that self identify as Catholic seem to be the most Christ-like and accepting. I bought this house in November of 1998 when I still lived in Denver, and Theresa and her now-deceased husband Bill, who was the Deacon for MacDill AFB for many years, knowing that I am a pot-smoking homosexual, immediately gave me the keys to their house and I gave them mine. When I'd be in Denver and a storm would knock out the power, Bill would go into my house and reset all the outlet lamp timers. When I moved in to my home in 2002 I'd care for their dog Ginger, get the mail etc, turn on the porch light, etc. when they would travel. Bill had dementia for 6 years and Theresa could call me at 11 PM with me fully "altered" and playing my music full blast and I would immediately be grounded/not high and go into their home to assist her as he "acted out" until we could reassure him and get him calmed down. Since Bill died a few years ago I've been helping her out around the house and yard, and as always she calls to give me leftovers (Bill hated leftovers and I am a garbage gut tightwad who LOVES to be fed!) Other Catholics in my life, plus Methodists, have been similar blessings. Least Christ-like and scariest by FAR have been the "Born Again" Christians who usually "found Jesus" after hitting absolute bottom with alcohol, drugs, gambling, etc....hardly a "rational" intellectual conversion but instead one born of raw "end-of-my-rope" desperation. I know that Catholicism as a social force has a horrid history (Crusades, Spanish Inquisition, slaughter of native Americans, silence as Nazis slaughtered Jews etc.) but as individual friends and neighbors most Catholics have been wonderful to know, with their showing NONE of the crass shameful materialism as demonstrated by the Pope and the Vatican, nor the shrill judgementalism of "Born Again" Christians I've had the misfortune to know.

They Lied About Iraq, They Are Lying About Iran

I so hope that young people stop enlisting in the Empire's army that has nothing to do with "defending America" but everything to do with enriching the 1%. And I pray that people already IN the Empire's armed services will refuse orders WHEN an attack on Iran is ordered. How sad that when I was a child I believed I lived in the land of the "Good Guys" that the world looked up to, only to realize at 58 that this country is the  global epicenter of suffering and death caused by wars of choice for profit, that we are feared and hated instead, and for ample reasons.

Does a day go by when Israeli Zionism does not commit an international crime?

Yet Israel, like any bully confronted, plays "victim". I am so embarrassed by the fact that I was a knee jerk supporter of Israel until the spring of 2001 when I FINALLY set aside my brainwashing and looked at the core issue of UN Resolution 242, which Israel has ignored and defied since 1967, aided by US vetoes and vast funding. Zionism's bizarre belief that they can just TAKE land inhabited by others for 20 centuries because their invisible version of the Flying Spaghetti Monster supposedly gave it to them millenia ago sure is convenient, and inherently amoral.

Why are Bush and Cheney NOT facing war crimes charges?

There are pics of deformed babies born in Fallujah, where the US used banned white phosphorus and uranium weapons against a town that had NO tanks, MUCH worse than these. I hope I live to see the entire Bush cabal face justice for their vast crimes against the US and humanity.

9-11 was an inside job

When Building 7 collapsed, then SOMEHOW the next day photos and names of all the hijackers were broadcast, and the claim that Atta's passport was SOMEHOW found in the debris, I was filled with suspicion about what we were being told. In my life history I have the systemic government lies about the "Gulf Of Tonkin" incidents used to expand the Vietnam War....count me as a "conspiracy whack job". The 1% know no limits.

      Last Night

Last night
the breeze through my bedroom window
was cool and carried distant train song,
and the scent of leaves  bruised by frost.
The sheets were crisp against my neck.
I studied moon shadows on the wall.

I heard a bobwhite
cry out in the autumn dark.....
if that moment could have been held
it would be gem,
be lense.

Soon I dreamed of the black lip of a midnight tide
moonlit and creeping inland;
a scent of wet algae and
stars......
the metallic taste of mystery.

I dreamed of a moonlit glass train,
the transparent cars roaring past me
just as the first snow of the year began.

There was no smoke,
no whistle of heat and steam,
only the smile of the waving engineer
and the gleam of clear wheels on steel.

John Starnes  1986

The original 'War of the Worlds' movie

This icon came out the year I was born, 1953, and as an older child I loved it, and the manta ray crafts and their cool ray gun sounds were, along with dinosaurs and space ships, were among my most fun obsessions then. I am so glad I checked YouTube....the infamous battle scene that dazzled me for years during rare broadcasts in TV back then (WAY pre-VHS and DVD!) is there in hi-res!. Enjoy

Cool flying wing!

My paper flying wing planes in Denver always had winglets that drooped down...if I made them tilt up in the usual position, the planes would invariably porpoise! I'm reviving an RC foam plane project begun by me and a former friend who turned me onto this affordable approach, a healthy legacy of our relationship, by using three carbon fiber fishing pole tips to use to both strengthen the wings and also to join them to the foam lifting body glider that will house the battery, with the motor THIS time mounted on the rear. I love this jet-powered flying wing! Amazing that jet engines can be so tiny!

The 1% Is Again Trying To Make Americans "Want" To Attack A Country, This Time Iran

http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article30422.htm

Refuse to "Serve"!!

"The feudal barons of the Middle Ages, the economic predecessors of the capitalists of our day, declared all wars. And their miserable serfs fought all the battles. The poor, ignorant serfs had been taught to revere their masters; to believe that when their masters declared war upon one another, it was their patriotic duty to fall upon one another and to cut one another's throats for the profit and glory of the lords and barons who held them in contempt. And that is war in a nutshell. The master class has always declared the wars; the subject class has always fought the battles. The master class has had all to gain and nothing to lose, while the subject class has had nothing to gain and all to lose-especially their lives."

What Astonishing Hypocrisy!

As if the U.S. acts to "stabilize" governments there and elsewhere! This country never STOPS destabilizing governments all around the world, even democracies like Iran was before the CIA toppled it in 1953 to install the Shah. How does Panetta look himself in the mirror each day?

I Love This Post On A New Sites About Panetta's Freudian Slip....

“I think the pressure of the sanctions, the diplomatic pressures from everywhere, Europe, the United States, elsewhere, it’s working to put pressure on them,”

Working to put "pressure on them" for what, not having a nuclear weapons program?  Does this fucking douchebag really still expect us to believe that we are morally above other nations.  We fucking nuked Japan!  We run dozens of secret torture prisons.  We invaded two (three, four, five?) sovereign countries based on a web of lies and greed and killed hundreds of thousands of people.  What the fuck did Iran do?
