Microsoft Games Sell Right Wing Political Ads

If you play free games from the Microsoft Store, you’ll be familiar with the AD bar as well as the occasional pop-up ad.  I regularly play “The Backgammon” game.

Today, this popped up:



This is offensive.  Not only does it advertise getting from a slanted political view, it’s advertising to get news from known Hate Speech and Racist groups.

This is all thanks to the age of Trump, where we’ve legitimized hate speech, assault weapons’ murderers, and openly, legally, bribing our politicians and allowing violations of the law to pass while we arrest and violate the rights of people who smoke a joint or have brownish skin.

I sent Microsoft Feedback through that stupid and useless “Feedback Hub”.  I included the above screenshot and told them I object to a political ad that promotes Hate Speech.

Think they’ll listen?

Only if millions –millions– send the same complaint.  I should add that if two Right Wing asshats send in a complaint, it gets seen to.

What the fuck is wrong with this picture?


Treat People With Respect & Things May Change in a Hundred Years

Have you ever noticed the horrible stacking of ‘box’ apartment homes in Mexico, Central America, South America, certain portions of Southern Europe?  In movies, you see the stacked housing units in places like Brazil.

Ever noticed the bleak boxes that make up “affordable housing” apartment complexes, also known as Projects in some cities?

Ever here about “slum lords”?  They rent low-cost housing.  They don’t make repairs until the city or state forces them to.  They allow vermin like rats/mice or insects like cockroaches infest these buildings.

Many of these housing units contain lead paint that hasn’t been removed.  This sort of thing also exists in veterans’ temporary housing and rehab housing.  The effects of such things are detrimental to the health of the occupants.  The money isn’t provided to repair the contamination.

Ever asked why all that exists?

This is how the poor are treated by the rich.  The “rich” don’t have to be overly rich, either.  They can be middle class or upper middle class.

The poor are treated with contempt.

The poor can’t rise above their station because the society that has the poor ensures they can’t.  When someone rises above that lowly station, it’s an anomaly.  It doesn’t happen because they worked hard and stayed out of trouble.  It happened because they got lucky.  That’s all.  Lucky.  They ran into the right people.

When you treat the poor like vermin, they’ll behave like vermin.  They’ll treat you and everyone else, regardless of station, with cynical dislike.  They need help.  They need protection.  Their kids will form gangs out of that need.

IF a society smartens up and treats everyone equally, pays everyone equally, and shows the poor a modicum of respect, then things change for the better.  If you tear down the shanty towns and rebuild them, giving the poor good homes and livable jobs, their behavior will change.  There are some who’ll stay trapped in their ‘poor’ mindset and will trample on whatever nice thing you give them.  One must understand that the rich do the same, but for a different reason:  Because they can.

If you treat people with respect, you’ll get respect in return, and things will change.  It won’t happen overnight or even within a few years or maybe even a generation.  But we have to start doing it.  The rich need to be forced to treat everyone the same.  The poor need to be given a chance.

We won’t get rid of stereotypes, racism, sexism, and other forms of hatred until we treat everyone with respect.  Unfortunately, the powerful will not cede their supremacy without a fight and so many people will die without decent housing, food, and healthcare.  Which is what the poor always need as much as everyone else but are forced to live with scraps.

We have to do something about this and one way, if you’ll pardon the political here, is to elect people with spine and ethics.  Sadly, 98% of our elected officials don’t have the latter and those that do lack a spine.  Progressive views are the way to a brighter future for everyone, not just the rich.

Let’s start by treating everyone with respect–but please, be rational about it.

No, you don’t have to treat a wannabe Nazi with respect.  You can treat them with a figurative kick the pants.

You don’t have to treat a fascist with respect.

You don’t have to treat someone who views women as less than human with respect.

You see the thread I’m going with.

Treat a person with respect, they’ll give it back.  If they’re rational, of course.  This doesn’t apply to psychopaths because they don’t know rational or respect.  And it should go without saying that rational also doesn’t apply to the Trump voter.

Stop acting so goddamn surprised when famous people are exposed as predators

Sexual Harassment.  It’s as old as Patriarchy.  As old as prostitution.  You know that.  And you were quite happy to ignore it.

  • If you’re a woman who’s shocked by the revelations that have been exposed over the last two years, you have willingly turned a blind eye.
  • If you’re a man, and you don’t understand what these women are complaining about, you’re part of the problem.

Think this is a recent development?  You haven’t been paying attention *on purpose*.  Why?  Not your fault, for the most part.  Why not?  Who’s to blame?  We are.  For allowing men to prey on women with not just a blind eye, but social Acceptance.

A. Casting couch.  The “famous” Hollywood problem that no one does anything about.

B. Secretary harassment.  Example: the secretary in the film “9 to 5”.  The famous acts by millions of bosses that no one does anything about.

C. Catcalls.  The famous acts by men in groups (and indoctrinated women, if they are with them) who fall sway, on purpose, to the pack mentality.

D. Marital Rape.

E. Second-class citizen.

F. The Dirty Old Man isn’t arrested.  Ex-judge Roy Moore anyone?

Until 1988’s The Accused, which purposely pointed out the horrendous treatment of a rape victim by the judicial system, law enforcement, and public opinion, proper criminal treatment of rape was minimized.

Despite advancement in the recognition of rape as a serious crime, it is still treated with minimization and disregard.  Rape as a felony isn’t a federal statute, nor is there a mandatory sentence under certain requirements.  It’s left up to individual prosecutors in every single jurisdiction and the majority of rapists won’t see a day in prison.  Rape is so minimized and dismissed that it’s trotted out as an excuse for snot-nosed, over-priced, over-protective parents to cry about if their “baby girl” has had sex.  The boyfriend is attacked and thrown in jail.  When something truly horrific happens, they don’t know what to do.

  • A girl is raped by her uncle and no one does a goddamn thing.  It’s just kept in the family and treated as an unfortunate event.  The man is dangerous, but he’s considered family.  Meanwhile, the girl (or boy) suffers. Rape isn’t sex.
  • Sexual intercourse and oral/physical contact is used as a weapon for the purposes of sexual sadism, sexual intimidation, sexual coercion, and sexual blackmail.  When a male offender doesn’t have a penis, he’ll use whatever is at hand.  Rape isn’t sex.
  • When the Buddhists of Burma rape Muslim women, or when the slave patrols of the south raped black women, or when Muslim men rape Muslim women, or when husbands rape their wives, it isn’t as an act of “getting off”.  It’s sadism used as punishment.  Rape isn’t sex.
  • Gay rape is even more condoned and minimized thanks to society’s brainwashing against homosexuality. It has nothing to do with being gay. Rape is not sex.

This recent outrage over the light sentence of a rich boy’s criminality is an example of society’s condonation.  The outrage was superficial and not taken seriously because the rape wasn’t brutal and didn’t result in the woman’s death.  No serious action was taken in response.  The judge said he didn’t want to ruin the poor boy’s future.  The woman, on the other hand?  Fuck her.  Public opinion isn’t a proper legal tactic for a prosecutor, and it never should be, but when a judge awards a perpetrator a light sentence because the boy is a) rich, and b) white, we have a huge problem.  And it’s ignored.  Further, the rape of this woman was dismissed by a large portion of society, and specifically, by the news media.


Because harassers (including stalkers), rapists, molesters, and those who beat up women on an hourly basis don’t consider it a crime.

Rape kits are treated with less priority than a polygraph, and the latter isn’t even accepted (officially) in a court of law.

The following is a list of industry award centers that routinely condone harassment, assault, and rape:

The Academy of Arts and Sciences

Hollywood Foreign Press (Golden Globes)

Screen Actors Guild

The British Academy Film Awards

and other industry centers.

They have failed to give recognition of exceptional work to films like The Accused because the subject matter is common place.

Many, many people abuse their power.  It’s as ordinary, and accepted, as an abusive husband or a President of the United States.

When the offender holds the highest position of the country, or sits on the highest court, why isn’t the country outraged?

Because it’s COMMON.  There are famous men out there who are still lauded because: Rape is not important enough to condemn them.  Examples:  Kobe Bryant and Mike Tyson.  They aren’t the exception.  They are the rule.

So don’t act all outraged when Kevin Spacey or Russell Simmons or any other favorite persona is accused and they’re immediately ostracized for a while before they’re forgiven.

Well, except for Kevin Spacey (gay) or Russell Simmons (black).  And therein lies a whole other kettle of condonement.

Our “Civic Culture” Is Sick of Obama and the DNC Establishment Horror Show

Mr. Obama’s article at Politico, the hack site that never gives all the facts:

Obama, opening his foundation’s first summit, calls for fixing civic culture

He said:

“What we need to do is think about our civic culture, because what’s wrong with our politics is a reflection of something that’s wrong with the civic culture, not just in the United States but around the world.”

No. You’re playing party politics and catering to the establishment corruption. OUR “civic culture” is sick of it. OUR “civic culture” has had enough of the lies, the pandering, the lobbyists, and the legalized briberies.

We didn’t get Clinton elected because she was a BAD candidate. Her egotistical approach to campaigning for the job was “I deserve it”.  She acted like the job’s hers because she’s running and because she lost eight years prior to a 44-year old professor of law so this time, it’s her job.  It’s such a narrow tunnel-visioned approach to campaigning.  She’s not only corrupt, she gave us the middle finger.  Like the following:

She avoided us and the press for 8 months of the election cycle. She went around giving paid speeches instead.  She altogether refused to tell us WHY she was running.  “I’m With Her”, or that other slogan that I can’t even remember because it was so lame-ass, was a bomb waiting to go off.  She was supposed to be this smart person and she lost.  NOT because people voted for Stein or Johnson.  That’s a pathetic excuse to blame the voters instead of looking at yourself to see what it was that they didn’t like.  It’s like that crap with Gore v Bush in 2000.  The DNC is still fuming over that.  Gore actually did win.  BUT.  He would have won a lot more if he had adopted the Progressive platform and not gone further Right.  Sure, he was for the environment, but you can’t be “for the environment” and cater to the corporations’ tax dodging and annihilations of said environment.

So along comes Obama and he basically says the voters are to blame for Donald Trump.

People, please listen up.  “Civic Culture” is a euphemism for voter turnout.  We are to blame.  No.  Clinton is to blame.  The DNC leadership is to blame.

We. Are. Sick. Of. The. Establishment. Corruption.

You, Obama, and the rest of that lot?  You don’t do what we tell you to do.  You treat us as if we’re children acting up.  Only when we put a knife to our throats (Trump) do you sit up and take notice and ask what the hell went wrong.  YOU went wrong.

Mr. Obama.  The DNC got lazy.  They turned into GOP Lite.  They went Right instead of Left and they are in Congress for one reason only:  padding their wallet.  Only the Progressives who have to call themselves Democrats in order to get backing from the DNC care about us.  You don’t.  You started up wars we had no business getting involved in.  You should have apologized to the entire Muslim world for our arrogance and war crimes, but instead, you increased military contractors and our Zero Policy presence in the Middle East, Africa, Europe, Indonesia, and Asia.

Why don’t you use your time to tell everyone the truth?  Because you won’t get paid for all those lies you tell in those $quarter-million-dollar speeches.

You booted out Latinos for no good goddamn reason.  “Only the criminals” was a lie.  Trump has ICE outdoing your heinous deeds because you gave him the blueprints.  You went after whistleblowers because they exposed the criminals.  You killed the messenger.

Let’s make a comparison.

Men and women betray our country and they get a slap on the wrist, a stern talking to.  But “leakers” and “whistleblowers” get put in prison for exposing the war crimes we’ve been committing.  So they’re arrested and thrown in a dungeon or they’re forced to go on the run.  They exposed what you were ILLEGALLY doing so they had to pay.

We The People are sick of the lies that have torpedoed our bank accounts and livelihoods over the last 40 years, and all because we bought into the lies you fed us.  We are SICK of you, Clinton, and the DNC’s favoritism for the corrupt.

Progressive want to purge your kind out of government.  And for that, the new establishment hack leader of the DNC purged all Progressive democrats from leadership positions in the DNC.

That’s a message.  And we’re not gonna take it., people.  Go support.

I fell for your bullshit, Mr. Obama.  I voted for you.  Twice.  The second time was because I absolutely HATE Mitt Romney and every single Republican out there.  He wanted to cut Social Security!  They all do.

And so did YOU.  The ONLY reason you didn’t get your cuts was due to the GOP’s plan of non-governing, refusing to do anything you wanted to do.

Voting for them is signing our death warrant.  But now voting for establishment democrats like you means the same thing, but in a nicer package.  Establishment Dems make speeches, tell us what we want to hear, and then they do the opposite.  Kamala Harris is just like you.  She was a Big Pharma lobbyist.  That’s enough to disqualify her from office.

I’m sick it.  I’m sick of you.  Buh-bye, asshole.  Go sit the fuck down and shut the fuck up.

History Lesson: Las Vegas Wasn’t the Worst in US History

Las Vegas was not the worst mass killing in American history: A history lesson

Many have argued this week and in the past that events like the Colfax Massacre and Wounded Knee are seen as separate because, within American history, the deaths of Native Americans and African Americans have not been seen the same as the deaths of white people — and that failing to specify “modern” history while talking about events like Las Vegas only underscores that idea by implying that earlier shootings don’t count.

What the news outlets should have said was that this was the worst recorded massacre by a single individual.

Worst Massacres, with more than one shooter, non-war.  The reason isn’t given because it doesn’t matter; these murders were against the law:

May 31-June 1, 1921:  Greenwood Community, Tulsa, Oklahoma.  Coined The Tulsa Race Riot by White historians

Victims:   300 African-Americans

Shooter:  White Mob


December 29, 1890:  Pine Ridge Agency (reservation) at Wounded Knee Creek

Victims:  200+ Lakota Native Americans

Shooter:  US Cavalry


April 13, 1873, Easter Sunday:  Colfax, Louisiana.  The Colfax Massacre(Whites in 1950 renamed it the Colfax Riots in order to dismiss it)

Victims:  150 African Americans

Shooter:  White “Southern Democrats” (Democrats were modern-day Republicans and the switch came during the 60s Civil Rights Era in what has been coined “the Southern Strategy”)


November 29, 1864:  Sand Creek, Colorado (the Sand Creek Massacre)

Victims:  70-163 Cheyenne and Arapaho (dead and dying)

Shooter:  Colorado volunteers under the command of Col. John Chivington


May 15, 1850:  Clear Lake, Lake County, California.  The Bloody Island Massacre

Victims:  150-200 Pomo Native Americans

Shooter:  1st Dragoons Regiment of the U.S. Army, under the command of Lieutenants Nathaniel Lyon and J.W. Davison


(BTW, I’m White)


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.
