Voter Purging in New Mexico?

As a high school teacher, I usually spend part of my summer traveling. To my surprise, when I returned to the Navajo Reservation, where I live and work, in early August of this year, I found an innocuous-looking, paper postcard in my held mail bundle. The postcard came from my local county clerk's office in Gallup, N.M. It was marked as Official Election Mail. Fortunately, I didn't toss it in the trashcan as junk mail. If I had, I would have gone to my local, voting center on Nov.

Slippery Pence—The Guy With the Shovel Following the Elephant

This guy is as oily Donald and has a full time cleaning the road after Trump has walked past. He can’t answer a question with deflecting, distorting or reflexively flipping to an attack on Clinton. Even if you didn’t know anything about the issues, the slick con man dodge that Pence displays in any question about Trump or the campaign sleaze consultants comes across like yesterday’s fish garbage.

Labor Day!

The corpse media obviously will not make a peep in favor of workers/labor.....Bernie spoke out briefly and forced the fascists to echo the truth, but we are still in a state of "media" controlled by those who stand to loose billions if the truth of wealth concentration becomes known by voters. Thom does a hell of a job getting the truth out, but his reach is limited.

The HIDDEN WAR on AMERICANS from WITHIN

In 2016 forty million Americans are so poor they are forced to endure the indignity of living on food stamps to the howls being labeled ' moochers' by the US media. Americans live in a country that is the world leader in wealth disparity. In the last 30 years since the creation of 'Reaganism', America has become a caste system of a small number of very wealthy 'haves' and an ever growingly larger number poor 'have nots'. Americas seniors for the most part live in poverty, with their poverty level pensions constantly under threat.

Colin Kaepernick’s Lederhosen: A.K.A. Pig’s Feet

Most know that the Black slave was abused in a myriad of ways. Few, however, pay much attention to the more esoteric, if you will, forms of abuse. One of these more esoteric forms of abuse was, believe it or not, in the diet of these kidnapped and enslaved individuals. And though I really am fighting the urge to get further in the weeds on that issue, I must save it for another time for that is not the point of this piece; but I did need to mention it. Essentially, the slave was given the discards or offal from whatever livestock existed.

Pig’s feet was one of them.

Is God Female / PMS / Menstruating?

We All clearly know and understand there is NO such thing as man-made "climate change". Could all these bizarre weather anomalies this past week (Earthquakes in Italy, August hail in Colorado Springs, land fall hurricanes in Florida…) simply be the result of God’s menstrual (or Pre-Menstrual) activity..? Could this prove God is a woman?

I don't know how else to explain why our God would treat us this way unless she is some kind of flaky chick with some sort of bad PMS who has simply had it with mankind and our behavior around the world.

AMERICA and Japanese UNIT 731

' For 40 years, the horrific activities of "Unit 731" remained one the most closely guarded secrets of World War II. It was not until 1984 that Japan acknowledged what it had long denied - vile experiments on humans conducted by the unit in preparation for germ warfare.

SINGLE PAYER Health Care

My response to blogger 'Ou812'

The average health care premiums per year for a family of four in the United States is in excess of $14, 500.00 , plus additional costs such as co-pays and deductibles. None of these charges exist in Canada.

‘Chicken Little Donald’ Returns With No Pesos – The Don Choked in Mexico

Reports of Chicken Little’s departure from Mexico confirms that pallets of pesos were not loaded onto his aircraft. So much for paying for the wall—not even a down payment! Not ONE stinkin’ peso. In the exit joint appearance (no questions allowed) Chicken Little looked like a whipped puppy. No macho man statements; no up-yours attitude. He totally choked. Reminds you of a few people who you may have met in your life who were big talkers as long as their posse was there in force?

The RACIST third verse of the STAR SPANGLED BANNER

"And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
That the havoc of war and the battle's confusion,
A home and a country, should leave us no more?
Their blood has washed out their foul footsteps' pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight, or the gloom of the grave:
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave,
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave"

Francis Scott Key's "The Star-Spangled Banner,"

It's NEVER going to CHANGE

America's governments can't really do anything positive or progressive , they're to busy chasing money (bribes) from the corporate moneymen , i think in America these shysters are euphemistically called 'lobbyists', when in reality its nothing short of legalized bribery. The rich establishment who own all the wealth and corporations, use this as a method of controlling government , 'every government'.

To the White Privileged and Those Who Deny It

Today Thom Hartmann had a caller that mentioned a work by Peggy McIntosh, entitled “White Privilege: Unpacking the Invisible Knapsack”. I wish I could remember the caller’s name, for he has exposed me to something that has truly had an impact upon me. I hope that he reads this and if he does I want to say to him: Sir, thank you.

Here are the main elements of her work:

“I was taught to see racism only in individual acts of meanness,

not in invisible systems conferring dominance on my group”
