All boats rise in a rising tide? Really?

Wealth is a zero-sum game. Thus, all boats in an economic environment don’t rise with the tide. Some are swamped and sink. We now have the most grotesque levels of wealth inequality in history, both in the United States and across the globe. Continue reading

The Politics of Panic and Puerile Propaganda

Every day I scan the pages and websites of main stream media and nowhere can I find a discussion of truly critical issues, much less a serious attempt to address them with cogent, creative, promising solutions. This should be shocking but it’s not. It’s the new normal. Continue reading

Success Story! Black Man Beats The Odds

Here is an inspiring success story! Our first black president beat the odds and the scourge of systemic racism and got his just reward. Just look at these photos of the opulent $5.3 million mansion President Obama will move his family into after Donald Trump takes the oath of office. Granted, not every African-American experienced such dramatic improvement in their fortunes over the past eight years. But like they always say … you can’t win them all. Continue reading

Hillary Clinton is the choice of the masters to run the country and start World War III. The election is irrelevant. Vote for Jill Stein. You have nothing to lose. It’ll feel good. Continue reading

Why Donald Trump is not as horrible as Hillary Clinton … and why you should vote for Jill Stein.

Vote for Jill Stein! If that ends up electing Donald Trump, so be it. He’s a buffoon and will accomplish nothing. He doesn’t know his way around Washington DC and will be totally isolated. If Hillary gets elected, we will end up in a major war. She knows her way around the nation’s capital and is supported by Wall Street, the big banks, the multinational corporations, the MIC, and worst of all, the neocon-infested government and media organizations. These folks know only four things: War, profit, more war, more profit. Yes, Hillary may end up being the nation’s first female president. But she’ll also end up being the nation’s last president. Continue reading

I didn’t throw my vote away!

My absentee ballot arrived today. In less time than it takes for Bruce Willis to comb his hair, I made my choice. A vote is too precious to waste on criminals and narcissists. My ballot is on its way back to the United States of America. Continue reading

Paying For The Peace Dividend

Be as skeptical as you want, paying for the Peace Dividend with a major realignment of our priorities and tax law, is the easy part. Fighting off the barrage of pseudo-scholarly neoliberal propaganda will be the challenge. The autocrats who now being criminally enriched by the current regime of crony capitalism and pay-for-play politics will battle this with every dirty trick they can come up with. Truth and fairness are on our side. We must not waver. We can pay for this. We can do this! Continue reading

There were over 28,000 Prince deaths last year.

America is being medicated into a stupor. Television is a drug of sorts but that’s another topic. Kids of all ages are being medicated, painkillers and psychotropics (anti-depressants, anti-psychotics) are promoted with the same abandon as fast food, Pokemon Go and lingerie. We have a War on Drugs which is a running joke, an FDA in the pockets of Big Pharma, a 15-year war in Afghanistan which revived its poppy production and the country is now responsible for 90% of the world’s heroin. In the U.S., addiction is skyrocketing, deaths by overdose are skyrocketing, abuse of prescription drugs is skyrocketing, Big Pharma profits are skyrocketing. Isn’t there something wrong with this picture? Continue reading

Just Making A Buck

America is the biggest arms exporter in the world. We sell some of the most efficient killing equipment ever manufactured, the most lethal and devastating weaponry in the history of the world. Then we wonder why there’s so much death and destruction as wars break out, as jihadists seek revenge, as terrorists inflict their homicidal and genocidal agenda on anyone that gets in their way. It’s beyond ridiculous. It’s like a person jumping into a lake and wondering why he’s wet. We reap what we sow. Continue reading
