Retired

I am retired on Social Security Disability.
I spend much of my time listening on Radio/TV and Reading Progressive Information.

Poetry of Imperial Anarchy, cont.

Despairing of the freedom which beckoned upon illusory paths of profound experience, the familiar emptiness extends its reach window by window and eye to eye. The songs and fire have disappeared; in their stead is only emptiness. Every drama continues nonetheless, perhaps more hidden to the imaginary eye, but nonetheless there, if tucked away somewhere beyond the reach of the inquisitive, lost in the glow of a distant-set sun across from the landscape of buildings stretching across the crisp cityscape.

Why wasn't there public outrage over ObamaCare within the Democratic Party?

There are some who are never so bold

As to wear their pant legs uprolled

But they’d dare eat a peach

Go nude on the beach

But wait, hesitate, don’t act ‘til they’re told.

Last Call, San Francisco, AK

The news graphics clearly show that moving clockwise from Chile, the Ring of Fire is activated and the two last segments of the ring to be fulfilled are Alaska and San Francisco. In Indian language, that liquid mud called "pemiscot," direct from the eastern bootheel of Missouri, is creeping over Pacific coastlines as the power of water and soil show that Bechtel and Halliburton are as effective against Nature as little boys playing at damming up a creek.

Teamsters helping in Wisconsin

In light of what is happening in Wisconsin, Ohio, and Indiana, I feel we need some saber rattling from any union organization that has teeth. The Teamsters come to mind as most truck drivers are members and commercial pilots are too.

The Death of the Middle Class was by Design...

Even in the face of the so-called Recovery, poverty and inequality are getting worse in our country, and more wealth and power is flowing straight to the top. According to Paul Buchheit over at Alternet, this is the end result of winner-take-all capitalism, and this destruction of the working class has all been by design.
