There are times one should not encourage despots, must stand against them; this is one of those times. To vote for a republican one should have millions in the bank, for a working person to vote for the criminals, that makes you an accessory after the fact. To vote for a democrat you must be into S&M. The only rational thing to do is vote third party or sit out the election by writing your name in all or part of the voting form. Time is running out and we must take very strong positions.

I could write a long article but you all know the reasons I am calling for a complete boycott of this election in November. I know that the republicans may take over the House of Repression and/or the Roman Senate but hell, they are all corrupted so let's split up the power and let them fight each other for the approval of the Corporate State.

We are at a four way fork in the road, take the wrong turn and our form of life will cease. Take the sad road and your children and their children will pay for your passivity. Stop on the road and you will be run over, we must pick the correct road to travel, there is no more grace time remaining; you must choose.

Meetings, phone calls, signing petitions, Saturday protests, (parades) or asking politicians to please pay attention is now a waste of time and resources---time is up.

You need to get off your asses and the safety of your home and get into the streets and scream as loud as you can. It is better to go down fighting than asking Sen. Merkley or Sen. Wyden to help us in the Middle East when they take money from the representatives of the Israeli government, (AIPAC.)

It is a waste of time, money and people power to march around DC on a Saturday and hope the corporate media will cover it. It would have been something to see if the unions would bring in the 18 wheelers and slow up traffic and cause some inconvenience to the member of Congress, say on Friday afternoon, when the rats are leaving the city.

Note: Funny line from Patty!

After writing this rant, said to my partner in this journey of life, "I don't think this is going to endear me to many people."

"Joe, you don't have that many friends left anyway." said Patty with a smile.

Short Bio I was born in Brooklyn, New York in May of 1942. My first memory was the wonderful block parties that celebrated the end of WW2. I don't remember much but it was exciting and I could see how joyous people could be during a major (more...)
