It's not about being liberal or conservative anymore y'all. That is a hype offered by the fascist whores who want to confuse the people with lies while they turn this country into an aristocratic police state. Some people will say anything to attain power and money. There is no such thing as the Liberal Media, but the Corporate media is very real.

A brief review of the last 3 weeks

It amazes me that this is from the Morning Joe, which is the most Conservative of Mainstream outlets. When Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski (daughter of the Jimmy Carter's National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski ) are hammering down, you know you have crossed the moral equivalent of common sense.

Thank you Mika and Joe.

Today's event at my high school

A truck was stationed outside of my high school this morning. A man and his older son were stationed with their vehicles back to back, a jeep and a truck. On the back of the truck was an improvised wooden structure draped with a white bedsheet upon which their was a statement that called a student at the high school “a liar”. I will not state the student’s name.

I approached the area and spoke with the father immediately, asking him, “Do you realize you are harassing a minor?”

The man, quite seriously defended himself by saying that he has “first amendment rights”, and that his vehicle was his own “private property”. I told him that “harassing a minor” pre-empts those other rights, and that as far as his first amendment free speech rights are concerned, “you can’t yell fire in a theater” or “call people vicious demeaning words simply because you have free speech”.

At that point the man broke down and admitted to me that he was angry because the parents of the student hit his vehicle in a recent automobile accident, and were refusing to pay. I didn’t get into the nitty gritty of these matters, but I said that I “understood” because last year some mother fucker actually ran into my car and then decided to blame me. I said that “some people are assholes but you don’t have to stoop to their level. You are better than that. Aren’t you better than that.”

Then I reminded him that the police were going to come and he was probably going to be in a lot of trouble. In fact, I said that the only reason the Pacifica police aren’t here is because they were having a staff meeting. I said that “I am just trying to do you a favor man” and that the only thing he is really gonna do is “cause a whole lot of commotion on the last day of school. Aren’t you better than that?”

That appeared to be the winning argument. The man took the construction down and then left the premises.

I find that you have to respect the reasons why people do things when you approach them and explain to them why it is actually in their best interest to reconsider. In this case the man was reasonable. He actually has a student at Terra Nova.

Financial distress causes people to make poor choices because their emotions get the best of them. All of us are equally vulnerable to this phenomenon.

The Office of Management and Budget

"Mick" Mulvaney is a good ole boy from the deep south who has sold his integrity to the larger vulgar forces of destruction, learning this truth when he was a lawyer from 1992 to 1997, connecting with wealthy patrons who needed his services in the courts. Welcome to the modern world.

David Stockman held this position for Ronald Reagan from 1981 to 1985.

The Rational National youtube channel

I just ran across this youtube millenial video news commentary called The Rational National. Click here for the channel.

I just watched a very cleanly edited rant evolved around the attempted smear of Jeremy Corbyn based upon what a parsed editorial comment said on a magazine he wrote for 30 something years ago.

I know right? Weak. Very weak. But that's the currency these people use to take down legitimate spokespersons for the people.

In case you don't know, Jeremy Corbin is running against Theresa May in a General election in the UK that is on the 8th of June.

As is mentioned in the youtube video below, the fucking pathetic US press made hay out of the usage of the word "rape" in something Bernie Sander's wrote back in 1972 when he wrote an essay about gender ambiguity. To be more precise, the comment concerned the substance of how some women actually fantasize about being raped, a comment which is not condoning or saying rape is acceptable. It's just stating the truth. A very small segment of the female population actually do fantasize about being taken by a man in a playful but rough manner. That's why fur enhanced handcuffs are sold. Saying this in no way indicates I or anyone else deserves the actually vicious act of criminal behavior. It's just simply saying that sometimes consenting adults have a desire to indulge in kinky sexual activity. There is no intention of doing harm or hurting other people for psychotic or sociopathic ends.

But alas, if you can't attack the ideas, and baring the lack of systematic ongoing behavior, you have to find some reason to attack the person.

Again, if you can't attack the ideas, you have to find some reason to attack the person.

Oh how I wish we had a Parliamentary system. When the governing party fails a vote, they have to have a new election. If that happened here, we would be re-voting for the President after the first AHCA repeal that failed. Which is why that demented proportion of our elite love this system of government. It is easily manipulated by dispersed wealthy, and can be clogged up by the intricate court system, because in the end it relies upon imperfect humans who will decide the cases and make the interpretations of what is falsely always called "blind" justice.

Justice is not blind. Those lawyers, those prosecutors, defense attorneys and judges see quite well what is going on, and sometimes they also see who it is that will provide for them the best long term employment prospects. Anyone who has paid attention to history, and sees without ideological eyes, can see this quite clearly. You think the current Supreme Court is ideological. Whoa man, look up the justices who tried the Dred Scott case. Look up the justices who decided corporations were people back in the latter 1880's and early 1890's based upon a comment of a rather obscure clerk concerning a railroad corporations taxation on property. Waving the bloody shirt was a sure fire way to stir up the masses by the corporate stooges who ran the various state governments and Congress during the post civil war era up until perhaps the 1890's when the populists began to take over state governments in droves.

The usage of bias, innuendo, and human prejudice is nothing new. You should read the screeds in the urban newspapers about the "radicalism" of William Jennings Bryant that ultimately led to the destruction of the farmer's revolt and the election of William McKinley -- and the Spanish-American War, with all of the aftermath.

Defining Deviancy Downward

This is Robert Reich, former secretary of Labor for President Clinton from 1993 to 1997. Click here for a wikipedia biography.

He has an interesting biography, according to the wikipedia source

From 1973 to 1974 he served as law clerk to Judge Frank M. Coffin, Chief Judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit, and from 1974 to 1976 was Assistant to the U.S. Solicitor General, Robert Bork. In 1977, President Jimmy Carter appointed him Director of the Policy Planning Staff at the Federal Trade Commission.

Wait. What? He was an assistant to Robert Bork during the Ford administration after Nixon resigned?

Keith is a beast

Keith speaking about the pathetic Fox news and Sean Hannity falsely smearing the Democrats on the death of a man who was murdered in a robbery. Fucking assholes.

And then came Sean Hannity. I have mentioned before that I used to know him. I used to work in a radio studio adjoining his a New York City and that he marveled to me about how seriously people took what he said and how anybody thought it was anything more than a job to him and how they would expect that he hated me when I would slam him when in fact the publicity would increase his ratings and he said with a laugh all he cared about were his ratings.

Mitch McConnell

If you want to do a google on this corrupt pathetic bastard, Click here and then Click here for just one in a copious selection of how pathetically corrupt and unpatriotic this Senator from Kentucky truly is.

I mean just look at this frowning scowling face below. Isn't that creepy? If you can read faces, this face says all you need.

He looks like he's sad about the path he has lead to this point in his life if you ask me. I imagine the thought processes this man makes on a regular basis. For example:

McConnell: "I am so sorry cruel world, but I have compromised my values in exchange for money for so long that I no longer connect with reality, and so when I consistently do anti-democratic, anti-American actions, I have to frown, because I am extremely sad about the devastation I consistently do to both my integrity and my soul."

Maybe I am wrong. Maybe.

The Declaration of Independence in Song

This is the 5th dimension released in 1970. One year after I was born.

When I was in 6th grade, my history teacher had his class memorize and sing this song to a record that he would play in his classroom and have us all stand and sing. Every single student. We would all stand up at the end of almost every single day in the 2nd semester next to each other singing this song. All of us still live to this day with this memorized in our head as a result.

Thank you Mr. Chapman.
