Is this the end of humanity? Are we truly at a breaking point in our maturity? Things seem so hectic and fast paced now. The world seems to be rushing towards the brink of destruction. Yet I feel like this is just a phase. Growing Pains! This is what evolution looks like. From the rise of White Nationalism in America (that has truly always been there) to the resistance against globalization (which is ultimate inevitable), the world is changing. Power is being displaced. Women and those who have been previously labeled as minorities are rising up and claiming their piece of the proverbial pie. Continue reading 40 Seasons and counting! PT.1
In 1980 the Republicans retook power with Ronald Regan-an actor-and they turned back the clock on everything that Carter had tried to accomplish. They used his name throughout the eighties to keep the Democrats at bay and by just invoking it they made them cower and kowtow to their bullshit. They widened the gulf between the rich and the poor and did everything they could to destroy the middle class. The Republicans used the falsehood of fiscal conservatism to mask their religious right agenda and roll America back to some false nineteen-fifty’s ideal where women and minorities knew their place. Continue reading The Brink of Insanity!
We are faced with the cold hard facts that we the people do not control policy, which is unless you are one of the people who control or help control Wall Street. This does not bother me in one bit. It’s not news. The right-wings new found love of conspiracy theories is old hat to a few of us. We have long since known many of these new populist are discovering. Continue reading The Hard Bigotry of High expectation
Last nights protest turned violent long after I left, until then it was peaceful and calm. There was almost a celebratory mood throughout. Though I was disappointed most of the self-appointed spokesmen for the community spent more time urging the crowd to remain peaceful than talking about what we were there for. There was a lot of self-aggrandizing spoken word bull crap, but at least people are getting out. And yet again it would not have made MSNBC had not been for those few who decided to mill around afterwards and smash some window. Continue reading Another Wednesday-Another Riot!
I’ve been thinking of how I was going to end this. The most important election cycle of my life (to date), has been filled with the most blogs I have ever written or posted (to date). I have followed each and every up and down, twist and turn for the last eighteen months. It has been serious at times, humorous at others. I have had my doubts and fears, and moments of joy and pride. I have debated the merits of Hillary Clinton and John McCain versus our next President Barack Obama. I have argued and admired with others. I have delved into this process far more than even I would have thought. It is no small event.The historic nature is of course the draw. The possibility and symbolism of a black U.S. president is no small feat. Continue reading Change or Die!
It was no accident that John McCain chose a complete unknown as his running mate.They seek to present themselves as a clean slate, but they are not. They seek to roll back abortion rights to zero. By McCain’s own words tonight he seeks to end welfare, and make sure that you will never get health care in your life. He will make sure that this country stays in a perpetual state of war and even tonight threatened to renew the cold war. I’m literally bursting at the seams with anger. If these mother-fuckers win I am strapping on guns and taking it to the streets. In the words of MC Search; “This is not a game people!” Continue reading John McCain makes smoking crack look like a smart choice.
I’m sitting here at my desk playing spider Solitaire and listening to MSNBC in the back ground. As you know the Republican National Conference is going on and it’s an even bigger joke than anyone could fictionalize. These idiots keep spitting out the exact same lines over and over again no matter what the question. It’s starting to look like Dubbya is the smartest one in that party. These vie bastards who have done everything in the last eight years to destroy this country and disregard the constitution, alienate our allies and spread war and death across the globe.
