Countering Anti-Abortion Protesters

We who are ambivalent or Pro-Choice HAVE TO get off our asses and COUNTER-PROTEST.

We have to SCREAM this back to them:

NO it is NOT murder!

YOU are violating the rights of your fellow citizens!

YOU are violating the health and welfare of children by ignoring them after they’re born!

YOU are an accessory to murder by ignoring homeless, hungry, and sick children!

YOU are accessory to murder by ignoring the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children!

Hillary Clinton’s Blame Game

Let’s rewind to 2015, when she announced she was running. What did she do after that?

  1. Avoided the press until July 2016.
  2. Gave paid speeches.
  3. Avoided the public (doing campaign stops) until mid-2016.
  4. Sent surrogates around to stump for her instead of doing it herself.

She basically said, “You have no choice but to vote for me because I deserve it.”

We heard about paid speeches to Hollywood elite. To bankers. To insurance company execs. We asked see the transcripts. She said, “Fuck You”, in her own “I don’t talk to the press” way. Bernie asked to see them. Oh hell no.

Her surrogates, which included pundits on every single mainstream media outlet (network TV and cable news, plus paper and online newspapers like the NYT, Washington Post, LA Times, Chicago Tribune) had a field day with Bernie Sanders, inventing condescending crap like “Bernie Bros” and calling his Democratic Socialist views “communist”.  The Washington Post ran *11* negative articles on Bernie Sanders in *one* day.  Their corporate bias was so severe it was ugly.

Not ONCE did they stump for her on the issues.  Not once did they talk about her platform.  Or question it.  All they did was dump on Sanders and the Republican party.

When she DID show up to speak, the press fell all over themselves to get to talk to her. She ignored them.

When Trump became the nominee, what did she do then?  Nothing.  It was the same game she played with Sanders: dump on Trump (in Trump’s case, it was his daily lies, insults, slander, and offensive sexist baiting) while blaming the Republicans in general for simply being Republicans (not explaining what they did and why their platform screws people over).

Meanwhile, never once did she talk about Why she was running.  What was the goal?  What did she want?  All we got was rhetoric about “I’m not Trump” and this idiotic “I’m With Her” slogan that meant nothing.

Michelle and Barack Obama stumped for her during the Fall of 2016. Why not earlier? Why not more fervently? Because by that time, they didn’t believe in her any more than we did.

I kept asking myself, “Where is she?  Why doesn’t she talk to the people she *expects* to vote for her?”

Her rich white privilege was stuffed down our throats while she simply sat back and waited for the primaries to be over and to appear like a queen (just as Don Sr appeared like a king) at the Democratic Convention.  Her speech, by that point, merely echoed the establishment talking points.

Not once did she talk to the people about the things that matter.  The erosion of the Middle Class thanks to Reagan’s tax cuts.  The stagnation of the minimum wage.  The second-leading cause of bankruptcy:  healthcare.  The war on education.

But it’s our fault she lost.  It’s Bernie’s.

Do You Object to Athletes Sitting During the Anthem?

Exactly WTF are YOU doing during the playing of the anthem?

1. At home, sitting on your ass.
2. In the stands, talking, scratching your balls.
3. At the game, buying beer.
4. Driving. Why don’t you pull over and stand outside your car with your hand over your heart?
5. Shopping. Eating. Shitting.

Doing anything but standing with your hand over your heart listening to a song written by a pro-slavery racist sonofabitch.  Why isn’t the anthem played in its entirety? Because you’ll quickly see that it’s a pro-war, pro-slavery song.

Why don’t y’all stop whatever you’re doing every single time the anthem is playing, in every single game, at whatever arena they’re playing at?

Take a moment and ask why the goddamn anthem is being played at a sporting event. THIS is what’s known as indoctrination.

L Ron Hubbard and Donald J Trump are Personality Twins

I was listening to this psychologist who determined that Hubbard was a malignant narcissist, which is partially defined as a person who aggressively attacks someone who criticizes them or tells them what to do.

If you think about it, compare the two men, it’s like they share the same soul.

Hated and evaded the press.

Hated the government.

Considered the IRS the enemy.

Hated exercise.

Had libertarian ideas but was more extreme in individuality.

Vehemently racist.

He evaded taxes.

Had everyone investigated.

Made shit up and turned it into a philosophy that he sold to people.

He was Trump’s spiritual daddy.

NKorea isn’t serious. Calm the F*ck Down, Trump

There’s this thing called the DMZ (demilitarized zone) that separates North and South.  We have infantry companies who man our side 24/7, 365.  They are armed with some fearsome weapons (I’ve seen and heard them).  The M61 Vulcan was one of them, last I knew. (yes, I know, it’s typically in aircraft, but trust me, its most likely still there, or its upgrade)

We’re not just at the DMZ.  Spread throughout South Korea are several bases, some close to the DMZ.  They’ve been parked there since the end of the Korean War.  We also have a large Navy there.  Whenever the military, en masse, conducts training exercises, the leader of NK will throw a fit because he feels he’s supposed to throw a fit.  “They’re conducting exercises designed to attack me!  How dare they!”

POINT:  If Kim wants to start a war, all he has to do is march across the DMZ.  If Kim wants to shoot a missile at us, all he has to do is fire it into South Korea.  But he won’t.  Why?  Because he’s not serious.  Period.  He’s all bluster and prissy tantrum-throwing.  JUST.  LIKE.  TRUMP.

Consider where Guam is.  Then consider where South Korea is.  Any questions?

So c’mon, @realdonaldtrump, you stupid shit. Find your head, pull it out of your ass, listen to McMaster, and go sit the fuck down and shut the fuck up.

Anti-Single Payer Controls the Narrative in the News By Way of Lies and Subterfuge

Y’all have probably heard by now about the tragic case of UK baby Charlie Gard. His parents sought an experimental treatment for their son’s brain in order to keep him alive and the Gov’t said no. It went to the UK Supreme Court and they too said no.

Now, those people who are paid by the health insurance industry to keep single-payer from becoming law all use this case as an example of why government shouldn’t be involved in health care.

Even CNN’s Jake Tapper framed the question about Gard’s case to industry-bribed Chuck Schumer as a case of gov’t being the wrong place to run health care.

THIS IS PURPOSELY MISLEADING BULLSHIT.

What they fail to tell you are the details of the case and why the government refused to allow the treatment. (treatment would not improve the life of the infant)

The reason they fail to tell you and instead play this game to fool you is because they’re all bought and sold by the insurance industry, who won’t make a lot of profit under Single Payer.

American Terrorism

Truthdig’s Paul Street: The United States and the Crucifixion of Yemen

“I do not share other world citizens’ willingness to pardon ordinary Americans from responsibility for U.S. government crimes, both direct and indirect, around the world and in Yemen. The real story of what the U.S. is doing globally is readily available for those willing to look beyond “mainstream” sources and doctrine. Most Americans remain willfully ignorant of terrible transgressions regularly committed in their name by Uncle Sam and his allies and clients abroad.

“This ugly indifference extends even to many on the nominal left, including Bernie Sanders fans who gave unconditional support to Sanders even after he told a peace activist in Iowa City in 2015 that the Saudis “are going to have to get their hands dirty” in the U.S-led “war on [of] terror.”

““For Bernie and his supporters,” 2016 Green Party vice presidential candidate Ajamu Baraka wrote two years ago in an essay titled “The Yemen Tragedy and the Crisis of the American Left,” “the mischief that the Saudi government and private individuals have been engaged in across the region financing groups like [Islamic State] wasn’t dirty enough.”

“Neither, apparently, was Riyadh’s U.S.-equipped campaign to bomb Yemen back to the 19th century—a campaign that has turned Yemen into a shameful humanitarian disaster of epic proportions.””

He’s right.  We are guilty.  All of us.  We let this happen through our apathy and our willful ignorance.

You can’t continue to wear rose-colored glasses when viewing our own history (past and currently making) and still call yourself an American. We have to stop our government’s continuing campaign of terror on the world at large. WE are the terrorists who have spawned other terrorist groups in retaliation for what we’ve done.

We were all so shocked by 9/11.  We’re thinking, “Why did they do this to us? What did we do to deserve this?”

THIS:  We have ignored what our government has been doing for a few centuries, and with our access to information for the last 80 years, we have no excuse.  We’ve been willing to accept lies and misinformation, all because we’ve been spoon-fed “patriotism” by our leaders whose sole mission is to rob us blind while they yell “squirrel” and point to carefully selected blame games.

We can’t afford to ignore our government’s war crimes and war-mongering behavior anymore.  We can’t.  If we continue on this road, we’re complicit in all war crimes our military and intelligence agencies commit in our name.

“The United States has killed, maimed, displaced and otherwise harmed an astonishing number of people in its 241-year record of murder and mayhem—including more than 20 million killed in 37 nations since 1945.”

Here ya go, Presidents (except Jimmy Carter), Congress, FBI, CIA, NSA, etc. One more goddamn fucking word about Russian meddling and the American people should kick your duplicitous, corrupted, evil asses.  Woodrow Wilson invaded Russia during their revolution because he hated communism, and began a campaign of interventionism, calling the action White Russian.  This action was the source of the upcoming Cold War and our rivalry with Russia.  We interfered in their elections, and Americans have been ignorant of this fact thanks to the government being in charge of the making of our history books.

This blatantly racist bastard (he held a private viewing of the hideous White Supremacist film “Birth of a Nation” and personally re-activated the KKK) was responsible for the murder of civilians in Haiti, the Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Guatamala, Honduras, and other nations, thanks to his interference in their democratically-elected governments.  Why did he do this?  His belief that we were superior and had the right.  We aren’t and we never did.

“Hiroshima (146,000 killed with a single bomb—what President Harry Truman called “the greatest thing in history”) and Nagasaki (80,000): The arch-criminal atom bombings were unnecessary and savagely carried out even though the U.S. high command knew Japan was defeated and ready to accept U.S. surrender terms.”

What you should know, fellow Americans, is that dropping bombs on Japan was NOT due to winning the war or trying to stop more bloodshed (choke on that stupidity for a sec). It was to send a clear message to *Moscow*. All our military commanders told Truman it was unnecessary but he ignored them. The fucker should have been hung for war crimes.

We have to put a stop to this terrorism by our government, ladies and gentlemen.  We have no right to interfere with other nations, never mind declaring non-wars on their peoples.  No right whatsoever.
