Stein got a little over 1% of the vote nationally in 2016 and if the Democrats couldn't nominate someone that could overcome that small percentage and beat the ridiculous game show host that entered the race on a lark, no wonder they and you pathetic sycophants are searching everywhere for an answer that doesn't point a laser focus right back on them.

The U.S. has long invaded and provoked weaker countries like Afghanistan and Iraq which have little hope of retaliating but nonetheless use what resources they have to fight off U.S. imperialism. However, provoking Russia in places like Syria and Ukraine seems to be the height of arrogance and stupidity on the part of the U.S.

In combination with #RiseUpOctober against police murder and brutality, a call has been issued for non-violent civil disobedience to shut down Rikers Island. Why am I participating?

I am speaking of the recent news item that Hillary Clinton will announce her candidacy for POTUS (President of the United States) on Sunday, April 12. First of all, no one should be surprised, and secondly, all liberal-progressives should (but most won't) vigorously oppose this person.

This is something that I don't want to revisit--I never want to relive the worst experience of my life. However, with the 11th anniversary of my son's death in Iraq on 04/04/04 approaching and the new "blockbuster" infecting movie screens around the world, I really must get this off of my chest.
SHARE Monday, May 27, 2013 "Just think about it...where would we be? My Memorial Day Reflections
This is my Memorial Day reflection.
Today, finds Tour de Peace, and me, in Greenville, Il...we are on a figurative downhill ride to WashedUp, DeCeit now.
It's been a wonderful experience, so far, and I am including a recap in this newsletter.
I won't ever say, "Happy Memorial Day," because war is nothing to celebrate, ever.
Have a great day, and week.
Love & Peace

After the recent tragedy in Sandy Hook, Ct, the predictable blather became the recycled "debate" about "gun control." However, I think the discussion needs to be around "War Control." Besides saving millions of lives, while the Pentagon just received over 600 billion of your tax dollars and needs to be shoved over the Fiscal Cliff, pushing War Control could also save OUR Social Safety Nets...

If we want to have any success as movements and people, we need to realize that there are forces loyal to the Democratic Party that glom on to people and movements to steer what could be actually affective towards electoral politics, usually in favor of the Democrats on the Liberal side of the political spectrum.

Did Obama just forget about the heavily fortified 104-acre US Embassy in Baghdad that employs 3,000, or the enormous US consulates in Basra and Erbil, that will eventually employ about another 3,000 people -- or the thousands of paid mercenaries that will remain after the end of this year?

The Constitutional Lawyer turned POTUS is committing atrocities against peace, justice and human rights at a pace that Bush and Cheney only dreamed possible. If Obama can't have one of us arrested or executed on his orders, then he will gladly diagnose our principled questioning as a mental disorder.

All I do know for sure is that this Empire is the Empire of Death--and to call someone who questions the fables, a "Deather" is just blatant demonization and a reactionary response to fortify the fraud.

Here we live in a country where the government has no legitimate right to rule over us! If the Congress can abrogate the Bill of Rights and its enumerated power (Article I, Sect 8, Clause 11) to declare war, then it has abrogated itself!

Sick to the death of the devious, mislabeled instrument of mass repression and tyranny, the "Patriot" Act, short for Eternal Patriarchy Act? Then why not explore the antithesis of this canard, what Cindy Sheehan calls the Matriot Act.

Emperor Obama, and Emperor Bush before him, were installed in their positions by the same institutions that installed Mubarak and Karzai. The difference is, with our complicit media, many of us still firmly believe in the illusion of political "choice."

Arriving in London on November 5th, Guy Fawkes Day, reminded me that the robber barrons are still in power. The recent mid-term elections proved that people are tired and frightened and see the government as a disease.
