Rafe Pilgrim, after "a life largely wasted on hard honest work," found himself a jungle of turkey oak, scrub pine and giant palmettos up a dirt road running east of Crystal River, Florida, which neither school busses nor the U.S. Postal Service dare to assay. Sharing a house of his own design with Spanky the cat, Darla a pit bull, and a foundling of mysterious breed named Alfalfa -- all collectively known as Our Gang -- he spends his time "productively: writing poetry, working for peace, and gazing at the sky."

A Veteran Confesses Although many yet blindly deny the past dozen years of treachery, many others now see it more clearly, but there has been no effort of sufficient magnitude -- including mine -- to take a credible stand against it.

Political Decency, America's Masters, and the "Traitor" Edward Snowden Americans choose -- one way or another -- the kind of government we get, whether by refusing our attention, defaulting to ignorance, or in embracing charlatans indentured to the cabal of greed and lust for power now in charge -- or by opening our eyes, grasping the reality, and braving the risks, difficulties and hard work required to actually gain and maintain the ideals of our earliest schooling.

Debt Crisis Propaganda and the Obvious Economic and Moral Solutions Debt Crisis Propaganda and the Obvious Economic and Moral Solutions . We are told that exceeding the Debt Ceiling is the problem, and that all federal programs must be prudently reduced, especially Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, environmental, etc, but no mention of the costs of America's military atrocities in the Middle East nor the support of the Weapons Industry and the monster Security apparatus.

Norway's 911. And the Reaction? The latest casualty report of the massacre in Norway stands at 92. Our hearts go out to this beautiful frigid country. One can only hope that Norwegians will react to their catastrophe more sensibly, humanely, honestly and morally than has been the American experience.

Wanted: Decent Straight-Talking President There's a petition kicking around the WEB to support Senator Bernie Sanders for president in 2012. What a rocket shot! We'd no longer be faced with the two-headed snake of the Hopey-Changey rhetorician versus the Party of Privilege.

Demopublicans or Republicrats? Americans have been betrayed by the charade of a two-party system ascending for the past thirty years, with our government (un)progressively and treacherously managing America for the benefit of the privileged. It's past time for a change, change not possible under the conjoined forces of the Democrats and Republicans.

Crime and (No) Punishment? Prevention is the Issue. Civilized people, a decent people, examine and punish as warranted, NOT because crime has been committed, but to prevent more crime to be committed. We are now at perhaps our history's most critical juncture of this perspective.

Addressing Eleven Years of War, Lies, and Bipartisan Corruption America's political leadership is bipartisanly corrupt and indentured to powerful moneyed interests. It is time for correction, the only issue being what means will be employed.

Democrats: Beware the Loss of the "Lesser-Evil" Choice It seems that the labor movement is catching on to the "lesser-evil" copout. The Dems may need to exercise some integrity (Wow!) now to convince voters that they'llactually stand by them once they pull the Dem lever.

"Lesser-Evil" is Too Evil -- An Entrapment We Must Trash Americans desperately need to grasp the notion that it is possible, if enough of us can muster the insight and integrity, to get beyond the bipartisan proposition that our choice is limited to one of only two parties, that "third parties always fail," and that we'll be the more damned if we do not support the "lesser-evil" choice.

Civilization in Reverse, History Going Backwards It is beyond understanding, past comprehension how Americans can tolerate our wretched warring, greed-driven, treacherous government. Will we awaken soon enough to employ a political solution, or await the necessity employed by our founders, that of revolution?

Humanity or Nuclear Holocaust: Do We Have the Courage and the Moral Intelligence to Choose? One would think that the very concept of nuclear weapons and the two hideous examples of their use 64 years ago would have at least scared the world into preventing their existence. But no, the hellish game proceeds, with the American cowboy ever antsy by the gate of the Nuclear OK Corral should anyone dare to offend him.

It's voiced intentions -- it claims -- are nothing more than to replace a corrupt House of Representatives consisting of indentured politicians by decent, honest, non-partisan, everyday citizens.

High Time for a Real Victory over the War of Lies and Government Indecency The War of Lies now incredibly moves into its ninth year. Actions by the peace movement in protest -- some quite heroic -- have in reality had no consequence in stopping the treachery. It is high time for the peace movement to get beyond its organizationitis and unite in common cause to make a real difference. It is high time for this war to be stopped.

Who Are Our Masters? There are the ongoing wars 8,000 miles from our coastline. 5,500 of our soldiers thus far killed, and over a million indigenous people slaughtered. We have an economic depression with people forced to leave their homes while trillions of our treasure are gifted to the professional and moral failures who caused it. Who is in charge here? Who are our Masters?

Torture Now Good ! Today's Washington Post, under the banner line "How a Detainee Became an Asset," tells us that thanks to waterboarding and other "enhanced techniques," Khalid Sheik Mohammed is now fully cooperating, giving lectures in English as well as chalk talks to his fellow detainees, and has asked for a bible to study in his cell.

Eight Years of Snazzy Signs, Nifty Slogans and Weekend Vigils Doesn't Hack It. My good and honorable friend, a dedicated and hard working advocate for peace and decent governance, for years a weekly demonstrator and pamphleteer, now is bent upon further exposing the 9-11 treachery with the idea that it will finally spark the citizens to demand peace and decent governance. This is my response to his conviction.

The Rewards for Speaking Truth to Power Colonel Timothy Reese, a senior American military advisor in Iraq, deserves the nation's respect and gratitude for recently advising his "superiors" to expeditiously pull out of Iraq as a continued presence there would serve no benefit. Then somehow his report was leaked to the media. We can but surmise how Colonel Reese will be rewarded for his courage and integrity.

License for Slaughter, Charter for Treachery Americans now know we were lied into war, and yet we allow the war to continue. We know our government employed torture, but have not insisted that the torturers and their directors answer for their atrocities. And we rightly sense that generally our recent and current government does not represent the best interests of the people. It is high time we change this sorry state of affairs and move on to decent governance.

Progress in the Despicability of Weapons Systems For awhile it appeared that all the war-makers had to do was to develop more powerful weapons systems than their potential adversaries. With the development of the armed Drone, however, a weapon which placed no soldier's life at risk, there emerged serious vulnerability to homefront propaganda.

Confessions of an Old Soldier The never-ending treacherous wars, the torture, the trashing of our Bill of Rights, the dominance of the weapons makers and big money interests, and generally the growing misrepresentation of the best interests of the citizens by our government – have all ganged up on me personally as a disgrace to the uniform I wore proudly for nine years.

A Toxic Plan for Toxic Waste? The "Public Private Investment Program" works like this: The Treasury provides capital for new investment funds, matched with investments from private investors such as hedge funds. The funds can magnify their returns--and scale of borrowing--by borrowing money from the FDIC and Federal Reserve. Do you think this is a good idea?
