Infos Want to Be Free: A Proposal

It’s been noted on several occasions that due to attacks on blogs and the former website, some important points made in the past are no longer posted. But infos want to be free and those of us that want infos to be able to exist in their natural… Read full post »

The 'War' on Words

We’ve looked at how careless use of faulty definitions have contributed to the regression of not only the language but also the political dialog. The speculation here is that they are related. Perhaps the most notable example is the use of the word “terror” to describe pretty… Read full post »

Way back in November 2012 the Dems were handed an opportunity they may never see again. A clear victory on economic policy at the very least and an endorsement of many other progressive causes as well.

At the time it was noted here that the GOP might… Read full post »

The mainstream media has suffered through a number of embarrassments lately, not the least of which was the shoddy reporting by CNN that required several retractions before an official press conference set the record straight on who was arrested in the Boston bombing and when. But the… Read full post »

L.A. Top Cops: Bad Actors

The sleaze factor that pervades L.A. County law enforcement continues to be on public display even as your humble blogger re-posts (unpopular?) descriptive accounts about how it functions. I have stated in no uncertain terms that my allegations against Steve Cooley can be reduced to running a… Read full post »

Dying For Dollars: LOL

The use of the language has deteriorated to the extent it has actually become an impediment to communication. I don’t know the reason, the use of text language one of the theories I’ve heard, but the lack of concise meaning has become a plague on social discourse.

Allow me to… Read full post »

'Fix the Debt' GOP Droppings

In the previous blog several news sources confirmed that many corporate entities are something less than patriotic, socially-conscious “job creators”. The Facebook example is the most recent and well-documented but there are many other corporate parasites enjoying the same favoritism to t… Read full post »

America Losing Its Luster

Europeans seem to have awakened to the fact that austerity is just another scam being perpetrated against them by the banks. They have made it clear to their governments, usually in large street gatherings, that they don’t like the idea of being deprived of basic services because… Read full post »

Parasites Defined: Bank Scum Rules

In the last blog the term “parasite” was used to describe the actual function of the banking sector. Some might consider that harsh, a bit of an exaggeration perhaps, but remember that the banks produce nothing. They start off lending printed money which they don’t actually earn;… Read full post »

Keynes v. Rand: Epic Battle

The antipathy directed at elected officials resulted in historically low polling numbers during the 2012 campaign season. Unfortunately, the election hasn’t done much to assuage the mood of voters.

What has the $7 billion in spending during the last election cycle actually accomplished? No… Read full post »

"Where Are Our Customers?"

For all the hyperbole and angst that accompanied the budget cuts, there are very few that will actually suffer. The vast majority of Americans will remain immune from actual hardships as they have been since the 2008 meltdown. Very few will actually “tighten their belts” in any… Read full post »

How "Garbage Cans" Cause Poverty

It appears a correction may be in order regarding John Boehner, specifically the prediction here that he would quit within six months. The term quit was supposed to include resign under pressure, but the calculation is probably inaccurate for a very simple reason that escaped me at… Read full post »

Conservative Agenda May Benefit U.S.

The GOP meltdown is in full progress. While mainstream news organizations have specialized in avoidance, creating news vacuums, the GOP crazies continue to push their brand of zaniness in full public view whenever they get the chance making it difficult to ignore. Fortunately there’s a rath… Read full post »

Warmongering and the Economy

The election raised hopes that reforms were on the way, i.e. new banking oversight and enforcement, some attention to the widening gap between rich and poor, and maybe some restraint as far as invasions that haven’t produced the desired results.

Meanwhile, the “military-industrial compl… Read full post »

Mali: Here We Go Again

If you put aside the intermittent melodramas caused by the existence of a “debt ceiling” the political turmoil these days seems to be all about security. As trillions of dollars thrown at agencies and programs tasked to assuring security turned into debt, they became part of the fiscal pr… Read full post »

Return of the 'Chickenhawks'

The bombing has begun, this time in Mali escalating the war and bringing even more violence. The French airstrikes showed once again that these attacks are anything but precise. It didn’t take long for reports of civilian casualties to spread, but after watching some video it’s no wonder.… Read full post »

GOP Face Plant: Precursor to Extinction

It appears the Sandy Hook tragedy will be the topic of debate for the foreseeable future, even pushing aside the “fiscal cliff” drama which is really just an accounting squabble. (The Treasury is already printing money to pay off bond holders so what’s the problem as long as there&r… Read full post »

Guns, Big Pharma and American Priorities

Another mass shooting and America is once again wallowing in grief and confusion which is not conducive to rational discussion.

Mike Huckabee and the religious right-eous blamed America for rejecting God in the schools, perhaps the most ludicrous commentary so far. God was never banned anywhere, n… Read full post »

Early Retirement for Obama?

So the President threw in the towel in the first debate, and the angst and consternation from the left has been palpable. Some have questioned whether he actually wants a second term. Can’t argue with that view too much, because if I were in the same position I’d be content to… Read full post »

In many previous blogs I pointed out that blatant hijacking of all Internet-based services has been a constant, and that none of my accounts is even accessible for various reasons. Hostile ISP’s were the most common, but when I found a “neutral” source I was quickly escorted off the… Read full post »

CIA: Don't Bother Asking

The set-up for these observation was the blog entitled “CIA: It’s a Secret” which you can read at this link. To make the point it might be easier to take a look back at what happens when rogue agencies function beyond civilian or international law, accountable only to… Read full post »

The CIA: "It's a Secret

In the last political blog, I tried to convey that America cannot possibly control of lot of what goes on in the world, and unfortunately pundits, religious zealots, politicos, anyone with an agenda and a pie-hole seems to think that not only do they know what’s going on in faraway places,… Read full post »

Cops v. Journalist: No Bullshit Zone

Dear Cops:

I understand why you had to get rid of the 106 blogs that described cop bullshit. Cop logic doesn’t allow for simple statements of fact, rebuttals, court processes, audio that disproves phony “conversations” by stalkers, unedited video, or the fact the fact that after… Read full post »

Cops v. Journalist: GlobalRev.Org Hijack

For those that didn’t get a chance to read the articles that were removed, actually stolen, by GreenGeeks.com, we’ve been handed a rather inclusive example of the descriptive accounts. The fundamental premise of cop bullshit is false attribution, often accomplished by way of impersona… Read full post »

"Don't Give Up On Libya"

I find it both contemptible and unsurprising that right-wingers here pounced on the developments in Libya as nothing more than a political device of expediency. The know-nothings, the “Fox and Friends” crowd, seized the opportunity they perceived when U.S. Ambassador to Libya and three ot… Read full post »
