A Warning From Frank Herbert

A warning from the brilliant author Frank Herbert about following the greed-induced insanity of Capitalism: “You cannot go on forever stealing what you need without regard to those who come after.” Yes, it’s insane to gamble the existence of the entire species simply because you figure you’ll be dead before the consequences of your actions […]

The Megalomanaical Miscreant? Misogynistic Madman? Monstrous Maniac?

I came up with a silly word game and it was so much fun I decided to post the result. I wrote something about the U.S.’s glorious leader and tried to use as many words as possible that start with the same letter. This is what I came up with: A matrix of misused, moronic […]

Happy New Year! Who Was The Radical MLK? by The Anti-Social Socialist

The world of the corporate executive in the U.S.: a “booming” stock market; “strong” economic growth; “America” (their version) is great again; an inordinate effect on elections – uh, make that selections; companies that destroy the environment while diverting billions of dollars from the working class to the parasitic class (like Chevron, Halliburton, Kinder Morgan, […]

Who Actually Believes America and Its Flagrant Attempts To Corner Iran? by Finian Cunningham + Vijay Prashad: Where Are the Skeptics? + Wilkerson: US Further Isolates Itself

I know this post is a bit late, but I fear that the rabidly relentless conditioning of U.S. citizens to believe that the U.S. ever has good intentions when it comes to foreign affairs is still amazingly effective. Even educated people seem to lose a few dozen points in their IQ when it comes to […]

Just Because No One Is Looking Over Your Shoulder It Doesn’t Mean No One Is Watching

While I was happy that my ban from WordPress was done after almost four months, it appears that, for the moment, some sites are more difficult for me to engage than others. I wonder if other WordPress bloggers experience this. I saw a post by Uprootedpalestinian’s Blog titled “Belfast councillors vote against sending rep on […]

There Are No Children In War

There is currently a second attempt, in both the House and Senate, to pass legislation protecting the human rights of children in an occupied country under siege by an aggressive military force. The following is about the first attempt: Co-Sponsors of H.R.4391 – Promoting Human Rights by Ending Israeli Military Detention of Palestinian Children Act […]

Don’t Do It by Ralph Nader

This is potentially one of the most dangerous foreign policy issues facing the United States today. It scares me to see how many people are able to ignore the extreme danger of the insanely provocative behavior exhibited by the Imbecile-In-Chief. We are encouraging a new wave of terrorist attacks against civilians who are innocent of […]

SPAM Isn’t Just Nasty Meat In A Can Anymore

I’ve written lately about having serious problems with online access and with the use of my old iPad. The problems didn’t happen all at once, they slowly crept up the way the loss of civil rights and decency have crept up on the people of the U.S. I decided that planned obsolescence is the reason […]

What Are We Protecting?

I was waiting for someone outside Madison Square Garden one day and there was a lot of pedestrian traffic along Seventh Ave. Of course, this is a busy area and there’s often a lot of activity, but this seemed different, especially when I noticed a lot of police – and a lot of police with […]

Obedience

This is what happens when you obey: And this is what happens when you don’t obey: Any questions?
