I am being facetious with the title, though Mike Gravel does make this claim on one particular point. A truly insightful, enlightening, well-informed interview. About a half hour, but well worth watching or listening as a podcast. Jimmy has a large fan base, because so many folks are realizing that they can't get the truth from the corrupt mainstream media, and often not even the progressive media. Jimmy sticks to his guns, is a stellar comedian, and works on a shoestring from his garage.

Last person I talked to about him was a guy riding up the chairlift at Powder Mountain. He was a 32-year-old just back from one of our insane wars, somehow out on an honorable discharge (that I don't recall the details of). He said he never listens to the news, except now he listens to Jimmy Dore (who recently pointed out, I'd say accurately, how Tucker Carlson of FOX News likely saved us from war with Iran, at least for the moment).

In my run for U.S. Senate against Utah's Orrin Hatch, I posted many progressive ideas and principles that I internalized over the years. I'm leaving that site up indefinitely, since it describes what I believe most members of our species truly (more...)

I featured this video on one of my FB pages and tweeted it extensively. Senator Gravel is an inspiring, rational, humane voice in the cacophony of ultra-nationalism, warmongering, and ignorance that is the soundtrack of our national conversion.

He's regarded as a cute old man, a political eccentric, perhaps comic relief to the "serious" discussions that go on in the real world. But what he has to say makes more sense and is more valuable than the aggregate of blustering blather from the chorus of idiots that constitutes our politico-pundit-propagandist cabal. If these folks had 1% of the brainpower and insights of Mike Gravel, they might be more than soylent green for our meat farms. However, I don't see much prospect for improvement there. So let's grind them up and feed them to the pigs.

Great. Now I can't get the memory of Charleton Heston to stop playing in my head ("Soylent Green is PEOPLE, IT'S PEOPLE!!") Damn you, John! :)

Some people are just meat. It's why they hold events called MEAT AND GREET. (Do I have that right?)
