The Ways of our Lives…….

The election is over and no one is surprised or even excited about the outcome.  We already knew Obama was the pre-selected winner regardless of how anyone supposedly voted.  It is ironic that Republican voters are now feeling the anger that Democratic voters felt when they watched the 2000 and 2004 elections rigged for Bush the Dolt.  Apparently, vote fraud is ok if you are on the right, but quite hard to endure when it comes from the left. No matter, walking into the voting booth was an exercise in futility…..we already knew Obama would get four more years.  That was the plan and it was the plan all along and nothing, not even your votes, was going to change that. The scripted stage shows we call debates revealed nothing of any real interest to the public.  The absolute silence from Romney on subjects such as:

The TSA molestation of travelers,

The coming UN Small Arms Treaty meant to by-pass the 2nd Amendment,

The LOST treaty which will cede all of our rights on the open seas,

The growing police state here in the US,

The unconstitutional NDAA,

Ending the Czars offices which were unlawfully created, and,

Not one hint of the mountain of executive orders, written not as president of the United States, but issued as Chief Executive of the corporation operating as “The USA, a.k.a. The United States of America”.

Ultimately, this is what both men were fighting over…….who would be the new Chief Executive of the Corporate United States. More

Vote all you want: The flight plan doesn’t change

Vote all you want, the flight plan does not change no matter who wins.  We got us a big election coming up and of course the country is dividing itself right down the middle at least in some areas. For most of us out here this coming election means nothing.  The usual arguments over whether we are flying headlong into socialism or, if we are in fact in the throws of fascism seem to have lost their appeal.  Most have realized that whether socialism or fascism the end result is the same; a ruling class and the rest of us servants.  It just depends on which sales pitch appeals to you. For most of us, we have had it with the snake oil politicians and their ever changing sales pitch’s.

Fascism, the overtaking of government by corporations, is hidden behind euphoric,  glorious terms;  Free markets, free trade, globalism and the world economy.  Most who subscribe to this pitch appear to be fearful of being cut out of the action, maybe not getting a piece of the global pie or at least a piece as big as they thought they should get.  Socialism, the plan for the common people, will see many fall never to rise again.

In 2010, even many hard-core Republicans were relieved to see the end of the Bush/Cheney neo-cons and the unending assaults on freedom and our rights.  Eight years of what was, in my opinion, the most treacherous, murderous, pathologically evil cabal that had seized control of our country, was finally over.  What we were to find out was that it would only be continued under the new president, and taken so much further.

The election of Obama gave the country its first sense of hope after eight years of massive walls of lies, deceit, manipulation and some of the most corrupt individuals to ever find their way into our government.  We replaced the neo-cons with Obama/Biden.  We should have listened more closely to that victory speech, but we didn’t.  We were too relieved, too hopeful and far too enthralled with this new president and the promises made; promises we thought meant a return to liberty, to integrity and honor.  We should have listened more closely and not allowed our emotions to cloud our critical thinking.

Fundamentally changing

Obama asked in his acceptance speech if we were ready to join him in fundamentally changing our country.  What did we think he meant?  Did any one of us think to ask….fundamentally change it how? More

Political conventions: A collection of guppies and suckers

GOP = Guppies on Parade

The GOP convention was like watching a room full of guppies; their mouths opening and closing, them swimming about mindlessly totally unaware of what what was going on right in front of them.  Their “convention” absolutely rigged against them, their speakers regurgitating the neo-con party lines.  The growing dictatorshipsepitome of the evening was the appearance of Condoleeza Rice, lynchpin of the Bush/Cheney crime syndicate that caused catastrophic attacks on our constitution and that started at least two wars of aggression and which began the wholesale sell-off of our national assets to foreign investors and governments.

The appearance of Rice, an undoubted signal that the neo-cons were going to return, should have cleared the room.  Any sensible person would have run for cover.  Any one who has a memory longer than a few days ago……would have cringed at the appearance of this woman, who claims to be a Christian, who helped twist and contort the privileges of the office of the president, who knowingly lied about WMD in Iraq, who used her office to oppress the people of the United States at every possible opportunity, who fully supported the corruption that was rampant in the Bush/Cheney crime syndicate….this woman was a featured speaker for the GOP.

Is anyone really wondering what is in store for us if Romney/Ryan wins the election?  More

Tea party women attend “Angry white Women of the Tea Party” lecture

Tea Partiers attended the “Angry white Women of the Tea Party” lecture in the People’s Republic of Berkeley, Ca. Yesterday

Here we were, Tea Party members, third row front and center at the Freight and Salvage Theatre in Berkeley, waiting for the lecture to begin. Our speaker was Ruth Rosen: feminist, liberal progressive, author, columnist and all around women’s liberation chronicler.  This diminutive figure in a dress and matching pink scarf was introduced with all her college letters, literary successes and public writings.

We had come to hear her lecture on “The Tea Party and Angry White Women”.  I braced myself for what was to come, as did the other members who had found out about the lecture. Ruth Rosen did not disappoint.   She began her diatribe by saying that the women of the Tea Party were racist and xenophobic.  The crowd nodded and ate it up. I could feel my blood pressure rising. How dare she label us like this? She has no idea who we are or how we feel.

I kept my mouth shut.

It was all I could do to stay seated and the lecture had only just started. She continued, “Women of the Tea Party are angry. Angry because we are being held back by our husbands and marginalized, ignored and side lined by the GOP.” She also stated a woman joins the Tea Party because either her husband belongs or someone in her family belongs, and/or it serves as a way for these women to obtain a career they never could have otherwise.

The GOP party of God ….Not so much!

 My morning coffee and subsequent conversations with the guys about world affairs eventually came round to the recent primaries and the fact that it appears the fringe lunatics on the right, those who spout scripture at the drop of a hat, those who have immersed themselves in mad-made dogmas that they claim to be words from God, are ruling the political asylum…at least in South Carolina.  Even Georgia looks to be set to launch serial philanderer,

The Ten Amendments: An open letter from God to Republicans

consummate liar, pathologically immoral and unethical, Newty Gingrich one step closer to the GOP nomination.  To see this bloated, flaccid miserable man set up as the golden boy for the party that claims a higher morality and Christian family values, is an affront to anyone of true faith.  This could not be more indicative of the true amoral character of the GOP.  In fact, the only way this could be worse is if Newty was married to or philandering with “Man” Coulter.

So …….what happened to all the God talk?  What happened to doing God’s work?  What happened to speaking with/to God and looking for messages only your heart can hear?  How is it that the Party of God is pulling out all the stops to nominate one of the most morally repugnant, notoriously unethical and personally vacant individuals to (dis)grace the political stage?  More

So….I’m drinking my morning coffee and waiting for the cribbage games to start at my usual morning hangout and I’m watching some news channel that is trying to convince viewers that Gingrich is leading the GOP charge for the White house and I’m thinking to myself….. this is a set up. 

With most of the Republican party appalled at the thought of Gingrich as a candidate, and now with the addition of Donald Trump as his side kick, no one can take this seriously.  I’m also thinking we could turn this into a reality show series.  Forget Jersey Shore…..we got “Newty and The Donald” buffoon show.  More

No One Is to Blame for Anything

By FRANK RICH

Published: April 10, 2010

“I was right 70 percent of the time, but I was wrong 30 percent of the time,” said Alan Greenspan as he testified last week on Capitol Hill. Greenspan — a k a the Oracle during his 18-year-plus tenure as Fed chairman — could not have more vividly illustrated how and why geniuses of his stature were out to lunch while Wall Street imploded. No doubt he applied his full brain power to that 70-30 calculation. But the big picture eludes him. If the captain of the Titanic followed the Greenspan model, he could claim he was on course at least 70 percent of the time too. More
