Dupnik Strikes a Nerve

The Sheriff of Pima County, Arizona which includes Tucson verbalized what many people in this country have thought for some time now. To quote him as completely as possible:

"I think the vitriolic rhetoric that we hear day in and day out from people in the radio business and some people in the TV business and what (we) see on TV and how our youngsters are being raised, that this has not become the nice United States of America that most of us grew up in. And I think it's time that we do the soul-searching," Sheriff Clarence Dupnik

Offer Something (part 2)

Not long after that a group of canvassers including me, some of the best in our organization, gathered together. Some were disenchanted with our group, others felt it was time to move on for other reasons. The desire was to form a new canvassing group. Most felt that we had the talent to do it.

Offer Something (Part 1)

We should think about offering something.

Poem to Hugh Heffer

To Me You're Just a Play Boy

Dear Heffer, you pollute my ark,
Were I a dog, I'd poo your park.

You've made me ill from whence a teen,
Hence please get off my tv screen.

Pole dance is so faux pas false-
Foxes do the pas de valse.

We'll remember you for what?
Getting girls to show their butt.

The autopsy shall make it plain,
"Between his legs, they found his brain."

development of right wing political thought since fascism

The development of right wing (class based coercive-authoritarian/heirarchical) political thought since fascism can be understood in reference to the difference between the merger of corporations and the state as witnessed in the time of Mussollini and the new relationship between the latter categories in the United States today. The former was recounted by Mussollini as the result of financiers seeking rescue from the government.

Standard Pennz-Oil 1/11/1911

I have re-typed the following article from a January 11, 1911 edition of Oshkosh Daily Northwestern which in its antique form, is rather hard on the eyes:

"TAKE UP STANDARD OIL

With all sincerity,… NRA you can SHOVE IT!

My heart goes out to the families of the victims in the recent shooting in Tucson.

Media ceos

Thom - you asked what media CEOs will choose, going forward from the shootings in AZ, profits or patriotism.

They will choose profits, of course.

American business operates and exists entirely outside the realm of society and social responsibility. To quote Margaret Thatcher, "There is no such thing as society; there are only individuals in competition." (Paraphrase) CEOs have only one responsibility - to make more money for their shareholders and/or owners.

Wow, Thom, what a great day!

We are so proud of you. From the moment I saw you on F and F's this morning, I felt hope for us. Thank you for punching through! Wow, it's unbelievable watching you make a difference. I think you should lead. Anyone else think so? Ha Ha No violence, please. Thanks.

"Arizona Shooting Tragedy!" - (a somber) "What Now" Cartoon

The angry my way or the highway rhetoric fans the flames of violence. Targeting opponents with militaristic jargon or gun sights on a map is just plain wrong. Scaring the populace that people who don't think they way you think are about to bring an end to the America you know, and it's your patriotic duty to do something about it is frightening. We are a good people, and better than this angry rhetoric.

left of center political cartoons

you should be ashamed

Using the death of a child for political gain.ur no better then fox news!!!

right wigged talkers

Shouting "FIRE" in a crowed theater is oft cited as the limit of free speech. The insane right is not shouting "fire" their shouting "Start a fire". And when the seats start giong up in flames they somehow don't make the connection.

A call for accountability as Guantanamo enters its 10th year

[Note: The following letter was sent to 83 of the 93 United States Attorneys today, which is the ninth anniversary of the first prisoners arriving at Guantanamo Bay Detention Camp. Witness Against Torture and other groups will be demonstrating about Guantanamo and related issues in Washington, D.C., over the next 12 days.]

Perfecting Being Bullied...the left reacts as usual

Well, it has taken about three days before the left has collapsed in its own fears and begun blaming itself for the murders conducted by a nutcase informed by the right wing. This has nothing to do with THE BULLIES.

It has everything to do with THE BULLIED!

Olberman cancels "Worst Person in the World", the knee-jerk-liberal-lefty scardycats react by again falling for the trap also set by the right wing by calling for "gun control" for everyone thus helping ensure that the right will get millions and millions of more votes in 2012.

It’s Time for Bill O’Reilly to Get Real about White Privilege

It’s time for white America to get real about white privilege. Last night, Bill O’Reilly came from back vacation early to host a special edition of “The Factor”, one that he said would “tell the truth” about what’s going on in Ferguson, Missouri.
