Random notes, or Things that will get my attention if I ever return to blogging.

Random notes:

In the past few days I've seen lots of post from people about honoring those who have served and those who never came back.
Spare me your cheap grace.
Veterans benefits have been systematically reduced over the past few years. Congress has done little or nothing to help the tens of thousands of veterans who have come back with all sorts of physical and mental conditions. Veterans are dying because they can't get the healthcare they need. Over 100,000 veterans deal with homelessness and addiction without any help.
How can we have homeless veterans in this country when there is vacant housing all over the place?
Do something about that. Vote against politicians who vote against veterans. Make this a topic of discussion in political forums and when talking to your representatives. Demand change.
Sure, it's great to honor veterans, but that does NOTHING for the homeless, addicted, sick and hungry veterans who live in this country.
It is THE national shame.


Racism is alive and obvious.  Those who claim otherwise are fucking morons. . . and probably racist pricks.

Only unions will save the working and middle class.  Only voters will save unions when they decide to quit giving all our resources to the ultra rich and guzzling the lies the corporatists force down their throats.

The homophobes are going to go down in history the same as the southern bigots of the 50s and 60s.

Fuck you and your confederate flag.  Go fly your symbol of racism, slavery and treason somewhere else, you backwoods ignorant POS.

Help those who need help.

Blow me, I'm not Irish



. . . so I probably don't have some skanky green stuff growing from my testicles. That happens ya know to idiots who spend all their free time sitting on bar stools singing stupid tribal songs and partaking in alcoholic drinking.

What the fuck gives with these potato eating corned beef gobbling fucktards? I mean, who the fuck cares if you're Irish? Nobody but your fellow drunken mick buddies. We all know why you dress in green. . . to camouflage the puke you get all over yourself when you drink yourself sick like the white trash slobs that you are.

So now we have to tolerate that once per year drink fest where every light weight weenie old enough to buy a drink goes out claiming to be Irish and getting shit faced. Another amature night on the town, but this time with green beer and donuts.

So who was this "St. Patrick" besides some Irish mackerel snapper? This guy has been around for hundreds of years. Irishmen and their freckled skank hos all over the world worship this mick patron once every year. Guess what, his only claim to fame is that he "drove the snakes out of Ireland. Oh good, is that why Ireland is a rat infested shit hole? There were probably never any snakes in Ireland, hence the assumption that it was always a rat infested shit hole, but St. Patrick was a typically drunken Irish sot who thought he saw snakes and you know how easily talked into anything Irishmen are. . . at least, I assume they're the same as those speckled Irish women.

And what's with all you neo-Irish-American yuppies naming your kids dumbass shit like Seamus, Caleb and Connor? Yea, sounds like a good idea when you're 25, et up with yourself and drinking every night at the corner Irish shit hole for your social fix, but remember, this kid is someday going to have to deal with real people in the real world and when he says in his NY or Atlanta accent, "hi my name is Liam," people are going to crack up spontaneously in their face. Do you want your kid humiliated on a daily basis throughout his life?

So all you Irish wankers; STFU! Assimilate for god's sake. It's been over 100 years since your pitiful starving potato eating ancestors crawled ashore in North America begging for a mouthful of anything. Get over yourselves. You got nuthin.

Oh, and here's a good one. The Amurkin Irish want to make St. Patrick's Day a national holiday. I don't think so, morons. You gotta come up with someone better than a hallucinagenic drunken Irishman before you get a national holiday. You want to put some mythological snake charmer up there with Lincoln, Washington and King? Uh huh. Like that's gonna happen.

What else do you have to offer? Irish food? BWAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! On that basis, India, Thailand, China, Mexico, Japan, about anywhere else but Ireland has a better chance of getting a national holiday in the USA. Go stew ya up some meat and potatoes.

Maybe an inspiring liberation movement would convince us there is some merit in an Irish national holiday. HAR! Nope, the Irish simply killed a whole bunch of their fellow citizens over a period of a decade or so and then caved back in to British dominance. And we thought the IRA was such a bunch of toughies.

It's bad enough that every year around March 17th, everything turns puke green. I think we'll pass on any further adoration of a useless excersise in self abuse and ignorance.

Happy St. Patrick Day. Come on by and I'll give you a kiss for being Irish.

Same Old Song and Dance

Hey, remember we elected the GenX liberal dude who had all that Hope and Change up his sleeve?  Man he sure sounded good, looked good and made a shit load of promises.  I believed him.  Hell yea.  How could you not?
When was that?  2008?  WTF happened?  We're still occupying other countries and our soldiers are still killing and being killed.  We spent hundreds of billions on corporate welfare in the biggest corporate give-away in the history of the world.  Did anyone ever sit down and figure out how much of all that went into the pockets of the ultra rich?  Naw, I guess we didn't really have to.  It wouldn't be broadcast anyway.  I'm sure it wouldn't interest, anybody, outside of a small circle of friends.
Meqnwhile there is this big push to cut the measly benefits to the poor and keep our antiquated and expensive healthcare system that only serves the privileged.

Dadadaaaaa dadadaa
Dadadaaaaa dadadaa
Meet the new boss
Dadadaaa
Same as the old boss
Dadadaaa
Da da da da dadadaaaaaaaa

It's the same old story, just a different decade with different players from a different generation.

Back and forth, back and forth.

The problem is that the old adage "the rich get richer and the poor get poorer" is very real now and it's killing us.  These motherfuckers are truly hoarding the monetary resources of our nation.
I recently read that the Walton family who own Wal-Mart have as much money as the bottom 40% of the population.  Whaaaaaa?  A single handful of family members who own a single company have more money that 40% of the entire population?!?!

Consider this:
The top 1% earned 20% of the total income in the nation in 2012.
Worse than that:
Since 2009, the top 1% received 95% of all income gains.

What kind of wimpy lemming types are we to allow that to happen?
Why isn't there fighting in the streets?
Why aren't we defending our children's futures?
What exactly are our moral values that we would allow these elitist arrogant fucks to fuck us over like this?

New material, same old motivation level

So much new good material.  I should probably come back to this again.

Why I Never Post These Days

Gee it's kinda boring making political statements when your party is in control and the other party is doing such a good job of self destructing.

Thanksgiving Message

Hello my friends. 
Here in America it's Thanksgiving. It's a time for families to gather, be grateful for their fortune, however large or small it may be, and feast. We should enjoy our family and celebrate our personal triumphs and tragedies. 

It should also be a time to reflect upon what has happened between today and when people from Europe first set foot upon this great land. If you are of European descent, it's not YOUR fault that our ancestors raped, pillaged, stole and committed genocide against the native population, but it is your responsibility to recognize and be aware of what transpired before we came to be here. In that awareness, perhaps we can recognize the ongoing oppression perpetrated by those who find themselves in positions of authority and rule. We can recognize and speak out against the third world conditions to which many Native American people have been relegated. 

Sometimes, it only takes one person to speak up and voice concern when injustice occurs. A single voice raised with or against another single voice can sometimes make a difference. If we are grateful for what we have, and humbly accept our good fortune, we can also be a voice for reason and justice.

So be happy on this day of thanks and celebrate family, friends and good fortune, but never ever forget the past, for those who do, are doomed to repeat it with all its horrors.


Bedagi (Big Thunder) late 19th century.
Wabanaki Algonquin writer

Give us hearts to understand;
Never to take from creation's beauty more than we give;
never to destroy wantonly for the furtherance of greed;

Never to deny to give our hands for the building of earth's beauty;
never to take from her what we cannot use.

Give us hearts to understand
That to destroy earth's music is to create confusion;
that to wreck her appearance is to blind us to beauty;

That to callously pollute her fragrance is to make a house of stench;
that as we care for her she will care for us.

We have forgotten who we are.
We have sought only our own security.
We have exploited simply for our own ends.
We have distorted our knowledge.
We have abused our power.

Great Spirit, whose dry lands thirst,
Help us to find the way to refresh your lands.
Great Spirit, whose waters are choked with debris and pollution,
help us to find the way to cleanse your waters.

Great Spirit, whose beautiful earth grows ugly with misuse,
help us to find the way to restore beauty to your handiwork.
Great Spirit, whose creatures are being destroyed, help us to find a way to replenish them.

Great Spirit, whose gifts to us are being lost in selfishness and corruption,
help us to find the way to restore our humanity.

Oh, Great Spirit, whose voice I hear in the wind, whose breath gives life to the world,
hear me; I need your strength and wisdom. May I walk in Beauty.

Anybody but Obama? Is that it?

REPUBLICANS!  PLEASE! Tell me; what's your plan?
I've been hearing all these terrible things about Obama and how he has done such an awful job and how we MUST get him out, but I have not heard a word about what YOUR plan might be.   I've also not heard a single word about what republicans (McCain and Palin) would have done different.  Nothing, nada, crickets and all that.
Is that all you've got is Obama bashing and just a really bad need to get Mr. Obama out of the WHITE House?  What is it about him that makes you guys so angry?  Why do you seem single mind in your efforts to simply get him out with anyone but him?
Very strange and unprecedented in my political experience.
