A Nation of Relentless Savagery

We kill efficiently. We kill without remorse. We kill without hesitation. In 2016, the final year in office for our Nobel Peace Prize president, the U.S. dropped 26,171 bombs on seven countries, none of which have attacked America, none of which we are officially at war with. History will judge the U.S. as Martin Luther King, Jr. did in his historic address: “The greatest purveyor of violence in the world …” When you file your return on April 15th, recall that this is where a nice chunk of your tax dollars went last year.

Making AMERICANS Great Again!

America will become great again when Americans are great again. Americans will be great again when the impediments to individual potential are removed, and each person has the opportunity and resources available to them to participate and contribute as full and active citizens in an open, receptive, and appreciative society.

What? Are You Crazy?

What was crazy last year sometimes becomes the new normal this year. That is the source for hope that the citizens of the U.S. can get their country back on track to serve the interests of all Americans, not just the rich and powerful. Failure is guaranteed if we don’t keep our minds open to new ideas and fresh narratives. This coming year, with the inevitable crash of the economy and even more wars, we will face unprecedented challenges. Desperate times call for desperate measures. Continue reading

Take it to the streets!

Effective street protests are no longer possible. Even Micah White, one of the founders of OWS, has declared that things have changed and we need to find different mechanisms for demanding reform. 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

War On Terror = More Terrorism and More War = More Terrorism and More War = . . .

We can talk and talk, cite all sorts of statistics, construct marvelous narratives, collect anecdotes, offer incisive and powerful analysis. But sometimes a few charts says it far better than any amount of verbiage. These charts say all that needs to be said. Continue reading

The fix is in … Hillary will win … vote for Jill Stein!

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

It’s Not Hillary’s Physical Health That’s The Issue . . . It’s Her Mental Health!

Despite a lot of speculation about Hillary Clinton’s physical health, based on her own bizarre behavior and evident fragility, to my mind the real issue is not her physical health but her mental health. There is an overwhelming amount of solid evidence that she is a sociopath of the first order, which translates to: Given the magnitude of the office of President, Hillary Clinton is an existential threat to the human race and should not be in any position of power, much less the presidency.
