Leaving behind a treacherous government now addicted to perpetual war, its limitlessly greedy and power-lusting masters, as well as the retarded albeit smirky Republicans and their evermore clonish Democrat colleagues, a braindead electorate incapable of recognizing its own best interests, the hypocritical Christians who '"support our troops," and the tiresome, sloganeering and feckless activist-hobbyists, as well as those who profit from their plastic morality -- I now repair to my Jungle Home amidst the giant palmettos on a dirt road running east from the Gulf coast that neither the US Mail nor school buses dare assay, and there to gain the more decent and trustworthy company of the indigenous sand tortoises and rattlesnakes.

It started thirty years ago under a Republican president with little more than attitude and platitudes between his eyebrows and his pompadour, a posturing class "B" actor somehow engineered into the most powerful position in the world, served by an obeisant electorate who should have known better but performed to the ringmaster's cue. And over the next thirty years the house that Roosevelt built comes a-tumblin' down.

The lamentable common cop-out is that anger accomplishes nothing. This of course is beyond nonsense -- it is pandering to plastic morality in its most obeisant and moronic form. Anger is not only beneficial to worthy causes but the necessary stimulus to correction of institutionalized abuse.
SHARE Monday, August 1, 2011 The Lesser-Evil Choice Invites Self-Defeat
Isn't lesser-evil a sucker's ploy? Rather than to cop-out, why not stand up for something actually good, something that reflects our values? We have them, values that is, don't we?
SHARE Thursday, March 3, 2011 Indignity Testing
The news headline read: "Passengers Searched After Exiting Train." The public's reaction to this ranged from "Oh. well" to "What possible purpose could that serve?" But indeed, intrusive searching of citizens AFTER they get OFF a train DOES have a purpose.

Who are the enemies of Peace, the American People and Humanity? Pogo knew: "We have met the enemy and he is us."
SHARE Sunday, January 23, 2011 Bipartisan Disaster Pending
There is a now faint Voice escaping from the narrowing crack between the blatherings of America's two major political representations, a whispering that America is headed for a nightmare of profound proportions.
SHARE Thursday, January 20, 2011 Be Afraid
What's it to be in the face of the next inevitable treacherous initiative of the war masters? Again to join in lustily to "Support Our Troops," or to rise in sufficiently large numbers and stubborn resolve to prevent the carnage otherwise to follow. Would even having the good sense simply to be afraid in fact help us to band together in common cause in sufficient numbers to muster the determination to put down the treachery?
SHARE Friday, January 14, 2011 That Hopey-Changey Thing
Despite criticism to the contrary, Obama did not campaign on a platform of "Hope and Change." It seems that we heard what we wanted to hear, and stumbled on that little old middle word: "AND." What he actually said was: "Hope FOR change". And, hey, now that we finally got the message, we're really hoping as hard as we can.

It is high time to open our eyes and ears to the propaganda of both major political parties, to stop the lies, the wars and dominance of the greed interests, to get beyond the "lesser-evil choice," and to move on to a government that truly represents the best interests of the American people and human decency.
