Trump's @$$oul Affirmative Action Plan

In keeping with Trump's @$$oul Affirmative Action Plan to fill top spots:

One of OUR planet's premier @$$ouls, your next secretary of state?

EXCERPT: "The (climate change) fear factor that people want to throw out there to say 'We just have to stop this,' I do not accept."

Fear? Of course! Why would anyone in a low lying coastal plain fear a rising tide? Why would anyone surviving on barely arable land fear an expanding desert? Why would anyone dependent on glacial melt water for drinking and irrigating their crops fear the permanent and complete melting of the mountain glaciers they've depended on for time immemorial? They'll simply adapt.

To My 3rd Party Voting Friends - Vote Hillary!

So, basically, you’re saying “A Trump Presidency is okay with me.”  Because one of two people is going to win this election: Hillary or Trump.  One of those two, nobody else.  And even if Trump wins BY 1 VOTE, he still takes ALL this state’s electoral votes.  Which is NOT okay.  But here’s 4 GREAT REASONS to vote for Hillary:

  1. Hillary believes that climate change is real and will work urgently to stop and reverse it rather than hand our children a ruined ecosphere.
  2. Hillary believes that we deserve a good national healthcare system (ACA) and will work to improve it rather than dismantle it.
  3. Hillary believes in a strong fully funded Social Security system, rather than one given to Wall Street to gamble with.
  4. Hillary believes that corporations are NOT people, and will appoint Supreme Court justices that will overturn Citizen’s United.

There are dozens of other great reasons to support Hillary for the Presidency, but if none of them matter to you (and if it doesn’t matter to you who Bernie Sanders is supporting), then by all means, cast your vote for someone else and help Trump win.  Even if it’s only by 1 VOTE.  But I HOPE that you’ll join me and vote for HILLARY.  Please.

Your Puritanical "Principles", More Important that the Planet?

I keep seeing posts from some of you liberals, progressives, lefties out there, trying to convince yourselves and your friends that because of some vague atrocity supposedly committed by Hillary Clinton, your principals prevent you from voting for her, so you're going to vote third party in vane.

Make no mistake it IS your vote to cast as you see fit. But if you believe that this election is about You and Your Principles you are most sadly mistaken. You are engaged in a Narcissism of Truly Trumpian proportions.

This election is about your family, your friends, your community, your country and your planet. But mostly, this election is about your children and the children of all those that surround you.

There are many issues in the balance, but I'll pick just one to be brief, the most critical one, Climate Change. Trumpenstein will destroy any efforts to stem the tide of global warming and it's getting late people, closing in on too late for our children's future. The fate of the planet literally hangs in the balance. 2016 was the first year ever that atmospheric carbon dioxide didn't fall below 400 ppm in the month of September. And if the methane frozen in the arctic and beneath the oceans starts to thaw, it's game over, welcome to Venus II, may you and your "principles" enjoy your brief stay.

So ask yourself, do you really think that your Puritanical "Principles" are more important than our Planet? Because that, my friends, would display an outlook of asstounding self-centrism and heedless inconsideration. We're all depending on you being better than that.

Patriot or Nationalist?

If you're like me, you consider yourself to be a Patriot. If you're not like me you might still consider yourself to be a Patriot, but maybe you're not. Maybe you're just a Nationalist.
A patriot is like a good parent. Good parents love their children unconditionally, but they have no illusions that their children are perfect. They have no problem with disciplining their children or having others to appropriately call their children to account when they've done wrong. Because good parents want their children to be the best people they can be.
A nationalist is like a bad parent. Bad parents love their children unconditionally. And they may have no illusions that their children are perfect or have a problem with disciplining them. But they go ape shit if anyone calls their children to account when they've done wrong. Because "What? Not my Child!" Unevolved and Totally Tribal!
I saw this when I had to take one of my kids to the police station over a stupid prank for which, thankfully, they were caught. The officer laid out the charges and then asked if he had the right party, to which we both answered "yes". The officer was clearly surprised at this. I thought that was a shame and very revealing.
Nationalism is Racism's just as dangerous, but surficially less revolting cousin. Subjects dared not criticize Nazi Germany. Subjects dare not criticize China or Russia or North Korea! But Citizens of America should never feel subjugated! Oh, and by the way, there are many patriots who suffered for our freedom. But only a fool would die for an F’ing Flag.
So Colin Kaepernick, in a way that hurts no one (even Packer fans), calls out America for its racist wrongs. Wrongs that it has made great progress on and should be proud of, but on which it OBVIOUSLY still has a long way to go. Like good parents, Patriots understand / tolerate that. Like bad parents, Nationalists go ape shit on the interwebs!

Be a patriot, don't go FaceFook Apie!

To the Trumpladyte Go the Spoils?

The Trumpladyte has said repeatedly that:
We should have taken Iraq's oil
to the winner goes the spoils

That is an ignorant insult to America and her greatest generation!

The Trumpladyte has said repeatedly that:
We should have taken Iraq's oil
to the winner goes the spoils

That is an ignorant insult to America and her greatest generation!

When the allies won WWII and the United States emerged ascendant, did we conquer and dominate the lands we held like the Soviet Empire did? Did we plunder treasure from the lands previously held by the fascists and the Japanese imperialists that were now under our control?


That is EXACTLY what was expected, because that was what has been done throughout the human history of warfare, first you Rape and then you Pillage. The Tom Hanks movie Monuments Men provides a historical account of this. As we were trying to save Europe's art treasures that were plundered by the Nazis, many Europeans at first refused to collaborate because they assumed we would do what the Germans and everyone before them did, pillage and take the treasure back to the U.S. But we didn't!

If there is any legitimate claim to American Exceptionalism this is it! Instead of claiming the spoils of war as the spoiled little Trumpster has exhorted, America instituted the Marshall Plan by which we helped rebuild countries devastated by the war including the aggressors West Germany, Italy and Japan. UNPRECIDENTED!

Of course the Trumpladyte is vacuous when it comes the details on any of his so called "plans", so we'll never know just how he thinks we would have taken Iraq's oil or how much more American blood and treasure would have been required for adding this theft on to the Debacle in Iraqle (a war the donald was for before he was against). But it would have been Huuuuuuge as we would not just be fighting ISIS, but all Iraqi's and people from across the middle east for gross imperialist pillagry.

This is only one small sample of why this man, with the emotional maturity of a fourth grader, who has pillaged the wealth of other American's to build his gambling den empire it totally unfit to be America's president. If we elect this scam artist, we will not only be justly feared and a global laughing stock, we will lose all legitimacy to lead the world forward as we have for decades. With a would be dictator in charge, who loves Vladimer Putin and his "leadership", America would be unexceptional. Just another plundering power in a long line of pathetic plutocracies. In nominating the Trumpster the Republicon Party has proven thay it's finally gone over the edge and lost its mind. Let's prove that America as a whole has not lost hers as well.

History's Trickling Echoes

"We told them the wealth would trickle down!"
I woke up last night and couldn't get back to sleep, so I did what I always do, read a book. Currently, I'm reading Poland, a historical novel by James Michener and I came upon an unexpected, but very interesting passage (pp 219-20), as follows:

Very rich people-in all nations-can be divided into two catagories; those with brains and those without. Those with brains make a great effort to hold on to every penny they have while preaching to the general population that freedom and dignity and patriotism are possible only under their protection; in this way they elicit the support of the very people they hold in subjection. the magnates of Poland used this tactic brilliantly, preaching loudly; "The most insignificant member of the gentry with one horse and sword is the equal of the most powerful magnate in his castle," while at the same time depriving landless gentry of almost all rights and treating them with contempt. The peasant was kept happy by being assured that it was the magnate who defended Christianinty. The townsman, who was allowed no rights whatsoever, was reminded: "It is the magnate who protects your freedom and your shop." And all were told repeatedly: "If the magnate is left free to accumulate his great wealth, you can be sure that some of it will sift down to you.

They're the "Suckers" and so are we!

Sounding of the Last Trump? -The Donald as Commander-In-Chief!!

Trump Wants You to Hand Him the Button!
Donald Trump is Far More Dangerous than I had ever imagined!

David Cay Johnston, a Pulitzer Prize winning author and investigative reporter has known Trump personally for 30 years and has written a new book about Donald, who he is, what he's done and who his allies are. There is NO WAY this vindictive man, who's personal motto is "Get revenge" should be commander-in-chief of America's Military.

The mainstream media has fallen down on their responsibility to inform the American people about who Donald Trump really is!

Trump has no emapthy or compassion for anyone, having cut off his own medically fragile infant nephew from healthcare over a family dispute.

Trump is a hypocrite having imported illegal polish immigrants to demolish a building for slave wages under harsh and unsafe working conditions then tried stiff for their wages, which is Trump Standard Operating Procedure.

Trump is not a successful businesman, but a fraud and a con man. His "university" was a complete scam and he has made a career of ripping off small businesses workers who provided him goods and services.

He has ties to the New York Mob, latin American drug dealers and the russian mafia.

There's SO much more. Anyone who is unwilling to consider the information provided by Mr. Johnston doesn't need Trump to build another wall, there's already one between one's mind and the truth. On the other hand, knowing this information and still voting for Trump would be one of the most irresponsible things for our country and our planet that a person could ever do!

Judges Rule Republicons Party of Racists!

EXCERPT NORTH CAROLINA: “The new provisions target African Americans with almost surgical precision” and “impose cures for problems that did not exist,” Judge Diana Gribbon Motz wrote for the panel. “Thus the asserted justifications cannot and do not conceal the State’s true motivation

And in The Badgered State:

EXCERPT WISCONSIN: “The evidence in this case casts doubt on the notion that voter ID laws foster integrity and confidence,” Peterson wrote. “The Wisconsin experience demonstrates that a preoccupation with mostly phantom election fraud leads to real incidents of disenfranchisement, which undermine rather than enhance confidence in elections, particularly in minority communities. To put it bluntly, Wisconsin’s strict version of voter ID law is a cure worse than the disease.”

This is what happens when you think it's a good idea to let corporations have a private legislature in the fascist American Legislative Council (fALEC) and vote in Secret on Laws to SCREW & RULE US ALL!

WWWalker Backs Off Corporatization of Badgered State Seniors! (for now)

She sure looks scared. She SHOULD BE!

Today the Wrong Way Walker Mis-Administration backed off the for-profit takeover of the Badgered State's senior citizens. In a surprise move this morning WWWalker's DHS Secretary Kitty Rhoades informed rulemakers in the WMC legislature that proposed changes to Wiscossippi's long-term care program were being withdrawn.

Da Gubnah in fealty to his profiteering corporatist overlords inserted this change into the budget last year. This particular scheme would have eliminated a highly successful and popular program serving 55,000 disabled and frail elderly in the once great great state of Wisconsin, who are eligible and have long-term care needs. The program helps those served remain in the community and avoid institutionalization. They get to hire, train and fire their own care providers, people who may perform personal care and hygiene services, cooking, cleaning, nursing. This gives them the freedom and choice (things Republicons purport to believe in) to manage their own lives and in many cases to hold jobs! But don't take my word for it, consider the opinion of an expert in the field.

So this development begs the question; why did the money god worshipper Scooter put the interests of our senior and disabled citizens and neighbors over those of his feudal lords? It is certainly NOT because he's had a Road to Damascus Revelation that he should do the right for the most vulnerable among us or that he suddenly cares about the People of Wisconsin. He cares only about one person, Scott Walker and his power-lust. It's time to use our right-to-know law and submit a freedom of Information request (the system his "Majesty" and little lord Robin of Vos tried to destroy last summer, earning the Coveted BAP Forked Tongue & Fangs Award) and find out what's Really Going Round in WWWalker's Gearbox!

WWWalker's Repeated Injuries and Usurpations

The unanimous Declaration of the thinking people of the Badgered State:
When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident that the once great state of Wisconsin is populated by ignorant rubes who support ill-willed @$$ouls!

The history of the present Gubnah of the Badgered State, Wrong Way Walker is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over this $tate by monied intersts. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

1. Asbestos Lawsuits – 2013 Act 154 – Restricts the legal options available to victims of asbestos-related injuries who seek compensation from companies that used asbestos.
2. Zombie Homes – 2015 Act 376 – Makes it more difficult for communities to rid their neighborhoods of abandoned homes by extending the time that lenders have to decide whether to sell foreclosed, abandoned property from the current five weeks, to one year.
3. Lead in Paint – 2015 Act 55 – Changes the definition of “lead-bearing paint” to allow greater amounts of lead in paint before the paint is legally considered lead paint. This law also forbids the state Department of Health Services from redefining lead paint in the future in order to conform to stricter guidelines issued by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
4. Lead Paint Inspections – 2015 Act 122 – Reduces state lead paint inspection and testing requirements.
5. Lead Paint Liability – 2013 Act 20 – Exempts lead paint manufacturers from future products liability lawsuits.
6. Payday Loan Regulations – 2011 Act 32 – Reduces payday loan regulations intended to protect consumers from predatory loan practices.

WWWalker Couldn't Manage a Popsicle Stand

Wrong Way Walker has shown that he CANNOT MANAGE ANYTHING!

From his Secret Server Staff as Milw Co Exec, to the Corrections Dept and beyond and especially the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) the guy is completely incompetent. And THAT is a compliment, because it assumes he's not just utterly corrupt.

The guy is a great career politician and an very affective cog for his ideological masters, but it's clear that he lacks the managerial skills to run a popsicle stand.

Wrong Way Walker - Starving the UW Beast

What more evidence does one need that so called "conservatives" are tearing down the democratic institutions that our forebearers lovingly built for us Americans?

Money god Worshippers of the "all knowing' free-market are assaulting the walls of the temples of knowledge that led to America's ascendancy in the 20th century, in an attempt to sweep away knowledge and bend all will to the service of their idols, power and the almighty dollar.

Wrong Way Walker's assualt on our universities and the Wisconsin Idea wasn't his notion. It rose from his Koch Ho toolishness, reigned down on him from on high by his ideological masters, like dollars from heaven, by those who would starve us all of thought and "bless" us with their "truths".

Yeah "truths": Free Markets, Fairies and Frog Princes. @$$ouls!

Yours Truly,

No No, the Koch Ho has no Mojo

I'm a like Packer, pay no attention to WWWeasel behind the Curtain!
After Tuesday's spring election Wrong Way Walker went on GOPropaganda radio WTMJ, claimed to have his mojo back, compared himself to Packers QBs Rodgers and Favre, and said Trump's comments about the Badgered State were like coming into Lambeau and taking a whack at the legendary QBs. WWWRONG! Tons of Wisconsinites would give their left arm to take a whack at WWWalker!

WWWalker has a lot nerve to falsely compare himself to the Packers or anyone on the ther People's Team. The Packers are the one thing left that still unites the Badgered State after the errant reign of the Great Divider. Remember, it was the day after the Pack won the Superbowl that Scooter told his minions that he was going to "drop the bomb" on us all. Act 10 followed shortly, rudely ended the celebration and gashed a giant schism through our collectively cheesy soul.

Furthermore, the Packers are successful and their quarterbacks are strong leaders, men of goodwill and well loved by all for perennially being at the top of their league. Whereas WWWalker is only liked by the enraptured Republicon base. He's not a leader but an ill-willed scapegoating divider and his rule has left the dairyland sucking hind teat by most measures when it comes to midwestern states and the nation as a whole.

I was actually in an elevator with the Gubnah at Lambeau Field last fall. He was headed to his corporatist sponsored sky box, we to our seats with the people, where he dares not tread! A Packer's safe to do a Lambeau Leap, but Scotty would get torn to shreds.

And finally the People's Team, owned by the folks (not a plutocrat's squad) are a Triumph of Socialistic Capitalism, while WWWalker's Wiscossippi is model failure of corporate rule in our fading republic.

Gubnah Walker, I'm not from here anymore, but I still love the Pack. You on the other hand, can just DROP DEAD! @$$oul.

Yours Truly,

Voter Fraud CONspiracy Theory Obliterated in 25 Shots of Logic!

CONgressman Glenn Grothman better be careful in truth-telling about the Hidden Republicon Agenda (they ALWAYS have a hidden agenda!) or he'll get "Trumped" by the GOPster Establishment. Glenn, didn't you get the memo that the ugly planks of GOPlatform, like race-based voter supression must be covered by a thin vaneer at all times?!

When asked if either Trump or Cruz could win in November Grothman (R-Badgeredland) replied; "I think Hillary Clinton is about the weakest candidate the Democrats have ever put up. And now we have photo ID, and I think photo ID is going to make a little bit of a difference as well,"

I'm sure Grothman and the GOPsters are busy walking this back with the claim that he meant that reducing voter fraud (which of course we're to assume that only democrats and specifically brown democrats commit) will help the good (white) voters of the GOP. But voter fraud is Virtually Non-Existent, therefore ONLY suppression of the Right of Democrats to vote in America can possibly provide a margin large enough to tip an election to the Republicon TRAITORS to the Republic.

Where's the proof you say? And just how feverishly foolhardy does one need to be to swallow this Wild CONspiracy Theory? Well Mr. owl, let's find out!

If you believe that:

1) You're important and special enough that it might be your personal vote, out of millions, that might be cancelled, and that justifies putting road blocks in front of tens of thousands of your fellow citizens right to cast their vote, you might be FEVRish!

2) Every election year brown people travel all over your state casting multiple fraudulent votes for democrats, you might be Foolish Enough to Vote Republiconish.

3) Would be fraudsters are capable of pulling off this feat undetected and never getting caught, you might be Foolish Enough to Vote Republiconish.

4) It's possible to coordinate getting all the forged documents necessary for all these people to register at the polls you might be Foolish Enough to Vote Republiconish.

5) Would be fraudsters never run into poll workers who know they don't live at the addresses they attempting to use, you might be Foolish Enough to Vote Republiconish.

6) Would be fraudsters never try to vote under the name of someone who has already voted, you might be Foolish Enough to Vote Republiconish.

7) The actual voter never shows up later to find that someone has already voted in their name, you might be Foolish Enough to Vote Republiconish  (FEVRish).

8) The fraudsters never run into poll workers who know the real voter in whose name they're attempting to vote, you might be FEVRish.

9) Lots of people would break the law and risk a felony conviction with no chance of direct personal gain to get a job for someone they don't even know personally, you might be FEVRish.

10) Lots of people would go to all this trouble and risk with no way of knowing if their effort is even needed to win or if it will be enough to be successful, you might be FEVRish.

11) Such a wide spread and complicated conspiracy would never get infiltrated, you might be FEVRish.

12) Such a wide spread conspiracy would be able to maintain operational secrecy and never have anyone squawk, you might be FEVRish.

13) A few people who vote while on probation or parole constitutes wide spread fraud or a threat to election integrity, you might be FEVRish.

14) A few people voting while on probation or parole would be identified and stopped by voter ID, you might be FEVRish.

15) Everyone lives like you do and has or needs a drivers license or photo ID, you might be FEVRish.

16) Getting to the DMV to get a photo ID  is easily done by the working poor without a car, you might be FEVRish.

17) DMVs have are open during convenient hours and are located nearby people with available public transportation all over your state, you might be FEVRish.

18) People who traditionally vote at rates lower than the the general population would be motivated to incur the expense, hassle and risk to engage in a wide spread conspiracy to commit fraud every election day, you might be FEVRish.

19) The the reason Republicon Party has never offered a reward for the exposure of vote fraud conspiracies is because they just don't have the money, you might be FEVRish.

20) The Republicon Party wouldn't trumpet the news all over the media if in fact they were ever able to catch the supposed perpetrators and expose this massive scheme, you might be FEVRish.

21) Brown people who are transported to the polls in church vans must not be legitimate voters, you might be FEVRish .

22) The Republicon Party leadership actually believes the wild conspiracy theory that they're foisting on you, you might be FEVRish.

23) Photo ID is about election integrity and not voter suppression, you're definitely FEVRish.

24) Would be imaginary fraudsters never try to vote using an address that doesn't exist and thus get caught, you might be

25) Interfering with the right of citizens to legitimately cast their vote isn't just down right Un-American, UN-Patriotic, TRAIRTOUS, you're a complete moron!

Wisconsin Manufaturer's & Commerce Court, Inc.

The conversion to the Wisconsin Extreme Manufacturer's & Commerce Court (WEMCC) is now nearly complete. I've now lost all confidence in the rationality, independent thinking ability and goodwill of voters in the Badgered state. With the election of the unqualified, injudicious, insincere, in-the pocket and down-right nasty person, Becky Bradley to what was once one of the most respected state supreme courts in the country, it has now become nothing but a political hacktivist joke and wholly owned subsidiary of the state chamber of commerce. It's bad enough that we've got Prosser the Strangler and the ethically bereft Gableman & Zeigler and the political usurper Roggensach, now we've got Wrong Way Walker's hand puppet on the bench and he's in up to his elbow. Honestly, I think the two remaining reasonable, unpurchased Justices should just resign and remove any inkling of the presumption that blind, impartial and non-political decisions will be forthcoming from WMC's priestly-robed shills! We are witnessing the rapid and rabid destruction of the institutions of our democracy that our forebearers handed down to us in what was once proudly one of the best states in the whole country, but is now sucking hind tit. Me? I may have to live in this shitty state. But I'm not from here anymore.

Get Cruzified!

Get Cruzified!

Vote for Ted Cruz!

If you want to be Ruled by a Dominionist Theocrat who means to control the seven mountains of society (Religion, Family, Eduction, Government, Media, Arts & Entertainment, Business) and anoint Christian “kings” to preside over an “end-time transfer of wealth” from the wicked to the righteous.

Get Cruzified, Hallelujah!

Trumpenstein is truculent and boomingly scary. Cruz is calm and quietly just as scary, if not more. and honestly the best thing that can be said about Kasich is that he's not crazy like the other two and he's slightly less awful and divisive than Wrong Way Walker, Gubnah of the Badgered State (former republic of Wisconsin.

According to the dominionists Bushyboy was believed to be the first of the Regents who would rule America until the Christ's return. As a country we still have not recovered physically, emotionally or economically from his fiasco at the ship of state's tiller. Well, their baaaaaaaaack.

Honestly, is there any more clear and present danger to our life, liberty and pursuit of happiness than today's off the rails Republicon Party!?

Not familiar with the dominionist movement? There's much lovers of liberty know. Read more and start learning here!

Go "CLICK" Yourself!

So it's no longer just an inference, Berning "Liberals" are now LITERALLY sharing GOPster talking points about Dems. What's next, accusations of SOSHULIST from the the Hillarites!? Unfortunately, recent experience tells me Yes. Serously people? Dennis Miller? Couldn't you at least find someone who is a comedian who could make your point with a scrap of satire and a hint of humor? This guy hasn't said anything remotely funny since it was written on a cue card for him to read in gthe last millenium! This clown (oops wrong word, clowns can be funny) is only still somebody because the Republicons think they have a comic on their side. As ussual, they're half right, he IS on their side. So are you really going to tool yourself out to carry his GOPollution for him through the Facefook Click-n-Share mode of prefab Gandabyte dissemination, passing his his sorry @$$oul shtuff around the interwebs? What do you suppose his goal is? Stay home, don't vote. Or perhaps, Trump or Cruz, come on in the koolaid's fine! If you're going to be a tool for spreading GOPropaganda, at least make it fun. Go find a GOPundit spreading the GOPsel with creativity, cleverness and humor! . . . Oh . . . right . . . there isn't one. So I have this to "Share". Put your thumb out, put your finger to your temple and go . . . "CLICK" yourself!

Abby Normal for President!

Republicons who are upset by Trump, but have been listening to AM Hate Radio, mainlining the FuxSnooze cable or, more recently, playing the Gandabyte Click'n-Share Facefook game have no one but themselves and their cynical propaganda promoting party leaders to blame. The Trumpenstein Monster with its Abby Normal brain is only saying out loud on the presidential campaign trail before the nation and the world what has been insinuated between the lines by the GOPropagandists for more than two decades now, ever since Rush "El Snortbo" Limbaugh and the cacophony of his copy-cat cohort have been polluting the public airwaves. And THAT is what's pissing off the Republicon Establishment about the monster of their own creation. It's not his racism or his mysogynistic disrespect for women that has them upset. It's not the painting of muslims as evil America haters who need to be banned and put on a black list, his ludicrous threat to round up 11 million people in the middle of the night and deport them, his support for torture or his saber rattling. It's certainly not his blatantly bigoted Obama Birther BS that bothers them, they were quietly bolstered by that. It's that he expresses all of these horrible values right out loud instead of using the GOPster approved dog-whistle code language to encourage the very same values without coming right out and saying it, which would thankfully be considered impolite in the America of today. GOPocrites! Any good American should know that propaganda has no place in our democracy. That kind of garbage is for fascist and communist totalitarian regimes, not decent republics. But the Republicon establishment has whole-heartedly embraced the use of propaganda and has been using it's manipulative powers to dumb down and whip up their base for years and the chickens with their heads off are coming home to roost! They have mettled with the primal forces of demogoguery and they will Atone! Now this definitely falls into the be careful what you wish for catagory. But I'm rooting for the Trumpenstein Monster to win the GOP nomination and then, in a mindless rage, in keeping with his partuclar idium, turn and strangle his would-be masters, today's repugnant republicon party. Maybe something decent will once again rise from it's ashes. As for those Republicons who are not upset, but rather in authoritarian awe of the towering Trumpenstein and his 4th grade level blowhard cult of personality, for now all I can do is shake my head in dismayed amusement at these people who are supposed to be my fellow Americans, have every right to be angry, but no real clue about why and at who.

What if Someone Did this to You?

What would you say if someone did this to a company you owned or worked at?

Suppose a powerful company that your company provides goods or services to comes to you and says "we're not prepared to pay the prices you've been charging anymore. We're going to pay you $X,XXX.xx per unit." You look at their figure and reply "that's below my cost of production. The cost of the building that houses my operations, the energy required to keeps things going, the transportation costs, the necessary materials all add up to more than that, how am I supposed to do that?"

Them: "We don't care, that's what we're willing to pay, make up the difference from your other customers."

You: "That's unfair and unsustainable!

Them: "If you don't like it we'll get somebody else."

Wouldn't you be outraged? Yes! Who would consider that to be an ethical business practice? Nobody! If people of goodwill heard about a business operating that way, wouldn't they be aghast and upset? Of course!

So why is it O.K. in America for Deadbeat Companies to do that to real people by not paying a living wage and/or denying full time work so that healthcare and other benefits can be withheld and then forcing taxpayers to pickup the tab because the situation for these workers and their families is unsustainable?

It's not O.K. And if this is what constitutes "Family Values" in America, we're in deep trouble both morally and economically and it's going to get much deeper.

And this is another subject all together, but another thing that is totally outrageous is that some of these big corporations take the "profits" that they earn in this way off shore so they don't have to pay taxes in America for work that was done in America. Then they come back later and buy treasury bills, because it's the safest investment in the world, and that means that poor saps like us, who Don't get the write the tax code are paying them interest on their tax free "investment". @$$ouls!

This oligarchy is so @$#%ed up in so many ways!

America - A Failing Society

Is a $0.80 cheaper Big Mac worth the price of living in the failed society we are creating here in America?

Fast food workers in Denmark make at least $20 an hour. If you want people to support themselves (and who doesn't?), you have to pay them a living wage. It's really not complicated math.

If a business can't pay workers enough for them to meet their needs, then it's really not a viable business model. It's a Dead Beat Business and it should cease to exist rather than allowing the owners and customers to continue to benefit from the misery and degradation of the workers, their families and their neighborhoods and to continue to outsource the costs to taxpayers and society in the form of public assistance and social instability.

EXCERPT: “We have to acknowledge it’s more expensive to operate,” said Mr. Drescher. “But we can still make money out of it — and McDonald’s does, too. Otherwise, it wouldn’t be in Denmark.”

He noted proudly that a full-time Burger King employee made enough to live on. “The company doesn’t get as much profit, but the profit is shared a little differently,” he said.

“We don’t want there to be a big difference between the richest and poorest, because poor people would just get really poor,” Mr. Drescher added. “We don’t want people living on the streets. If that happens, we consider that we as a society have failed.” END

Alexis de Tocqueville said “America is great because she is good. If America ceases to be good, America will cease to be great.”

Can a system of national "moral values" that condones allowing people to work full time and not be able to meet the basic needs for themselves and their families be considered good? Great? Successful? Or are we just being conned?

Pall Ryand to Trumpenstein --

-- How dare you deploy blatant racism!? Don't you KKKnow that this supporting GOPlatform plank must be covered by a thin vaneer at all times?

On Stuper Tuesday, Pall Ryand again witnessing the self created peril today's Republicon Party is in (due to The Donald's blatant racism, not the subtle, thinly veiled GOP approved variety), once more lashed out at their Trumpenstein Monster, though he dared not speak its name; “If a person wants to be the nominee of the Republican Party, there can be no evasion and no games. They must reject any group or cause that is built on bigotry. This party does not prey on people’s prejudices. We appeal to their highest ideals. This is the party of Lincoln.”

Well there goes Lyin' Ryan. All five of those sentences in his plea for mercy from the object of their creation are blatant lies! "no evasion and no games"? It's their standard operating procedure (GOP-SOP). "Built on bigotry/does not prey on people's prejudices" From Nixon's Southern Strategy to Reagan's Welfare Queen, States Rights mantra to GOPropaganda media tactics and way beyond, it's been a major supporting member of their platform for decades, albeit hidden beneath a thin veneer of what they would call "political correctness" although Americans of goodwill today think of it simply as Polite Decency. "appeal to their highest ideals"? The GOPsters appeal to people's lowest, most negative motives, Fear, Insecurity, Tribalism and Ego (I was born white male and middle class and Depite ALL Odds rose to become white, male and middle class, unlike Those people).

So it's amusing to watch folks like Pall squirm when no matter how empty and ludicrous his pontifications are the Republicon Cult-of-Personality, Authoritarian Worshipping Base they've created still cries "Mein Trumpf!

Republicons, you have mettled with the primal forces of democracy! And you . . . will . . . atone.

Blow Dart Concealed Carry Now!

Two tourists struck by blow darts on Golden Gate Bridge

Look out folks, The Badgered State needs concealed carry blow dart legislation now. Everbody knows that the only thing that can stop a bad man with a blow dart is a good man with a blow dart!

Unless of course he uses the element of surprise, then your only option is to mutter "Holy Dartanian Batman" as you slip into unconsciousness.

Be afraid, be very afraid!

Scalia: Robed Reactionary Rationalizer

It's a very good thing that Republicons wear tiny little lapel flags to remind us all about their "patriotism", because otherwise how would we know? Scalia is being lauded as a defender of the Constitution (even though he believed it's dead), but let's remember him for what he really was, A Robed Reactionary Rationalizer.

In ordering flags to fly at half mast Wrong Way Walker produced the following standard Republicon Hero, Patriot, American blah blah Bull Shit: “Justice Scalia was a patriot and a hero of American legal jurisprudence.  A lion of the justice system, he stood for the letter of the law and did not allow politics of the day to sway his dedication to the constitutional role of the judiciary.  Justice Scalia served our country with honor and distinction.

As a believer in the Divine Right of Kings, Scalia was NONE of Those Things!

God's Justice and Ours by Antonin Scalia - EXCERPT: "St. Paul had this to say (I am quoting, as you might expect, the King James version):

Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation. For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? Do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same: for he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil. Wherefore ye must needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake. (Romans 13:1-5)

This is not the Old Testament, I emphasize, but St. Paul. One can understand his words as referring only to lawfully constituted authority, or even only to lawfully constituted authority that rules justly. But the core of his message is that government—however you want to limit that concept—derives its moral authority from God. It is the “minister of God” with powers to “revenge,” to “execute wrath,”

So in his decision on a matter of American LAW, Scalia cites not only a religious text, but one from a man who never met the founder of that religion, and whose "authority" is derived soley from a supposed meeting between him and God, alone and in the middle of a desert!

Now juxtapose Scalia's form of legal "Reasoning" with what the founders of our Republic wrote about the source of Governmental Authority in the Preamble to our Constituion:

"We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."

I'm sure Scalia also had one of those little lapel pins tucked up somewhare under his preistly robes, but he was no patriot, because he didn't even unsterstand what the word is supposed to be to an American!

Nor was he a "lion of the justice system" who served "with distinction and honor". One need only look at his disgusting pretzel logic in his attempt to rationalize that Bushyboy's use of torture did not violate the Constitutional prohibition on Cruel and Inhuman Punishment, because, and I quote; "Has anybody ever referred to torture as punishment? I don't think so."

So in my estimation, Scalia did America a huge favor in passing off at a "Hunting" camp in Texas last saturday. The only remaining question is, Was Cheney there with his Scotch and his Shotgun?

No to Necci this Tuesday!

I received this piece of garbage in the mail this week. I don't have time sit in on court cases, so I don't know much about the "judgment" of the people in our Walworth County Criminal Injustice System. I bet I'm not alone in that.

But this mailer was disturbing in so many ways, as follows:

  • All the convicts pictured are men of color in a 96% white county. Coincidence? No RACIST!
  • Necci thinks we don't have any white Crooks? Please!
  • As District Attorney his job was to convict the guilty and ONLY the guilty.
  • As a judge his job would be to preside over the fair trial of the accused. Fairness, NOT Convictions, Remember this is still America!
  • Therefore, his prosecution of Colored Ciminals as DA has no bearing on him being a Judge!
This man's mailer is Racist. It's inflammatory. But mostly, it's a reflection of His Ethical and Moral Terpitude


This man is not fit to judge fudge, let alone Humans Being American Citizens!

Say No to Necci!

Repeatedly Laughable Cult of Con "Arguments"

There are number of arguments that you'll hear repeated repeatedly by the indoctrinants of the Cult of Con. I say repeated, because you'll hear them so often from different Cons in different places that you know they didn't think them up themselves. Rather they were inculcated with them by their ideological minders. Yet they'll obediently drool them out when the subject arrises like Pavlov's dogs and then wag their tails like they're such clever boys. "Look what I did, look what I did!"

And you know they got it from the GOPropagandists on FuxSnooze, Wingnut Radio or the ContraWebs, because they are not capable of coming up with these types of somewhat clever excursions around the truth on their own. They don't possess the type of creative or critical thinking skills necessary. And the proof is in the pudding!

Because the ease with which one can can expose the gapping logical flaws in these arguments makes it more than obvious that the rote repeater did not or could not give the matter any real Conserious Sideration.

I can think of two of these so called "arguments" off the top of my head, yet there are surely dozens of them.

1) The first one you hear all the time is how our urban centers have are perenially run by Democrats and they have certain problems, unemployment, poverty, crime, etc. The Correlation is Causation mistake that is unquestioningly accepted by the Cult of Con indoctrinant and that you're supposed to unthinkly nod your head to as well, is that these adverse conditions are caused by the local government and that it's the fault of the Democrats in charge.

The truth of course is that the conditions in question are the result of non-governmental as well as national governmental forces like White Flight, Segregation, Racism (subtle and overt), Lack of Good Jobs and Economic Opportunities, redlining, racial exclusion from the GI Bill and federal loan assistance, etc. And of course the question of why on earth urban minorities would ever vote for a Republicon Party whose attitudes and policies are completely at odds with their own self-interests, never even crosses the "minds" of these regurgitators.

2)  Another common logical sieve spouted forth by the inculcated is the notion that reasonable gun control measures on a national level couldn't work, because Connecticutt, Chicago (pick your city or state) has strict gun control laws and yet just look at the gun violence there.

Here we see the gross logical apples and oranges error of comparing a city or state, with no control whatsoever of who or what crosses it's borders, with a nation state that not only has customs and immigration controls, but also the ability to regulate what is manufactured within it's borders. Like Machine Guns. None of those abilities apply to local political entities and yet the wingnut can't see for a moment the utter destruction coming their way, by presenting such a flawed, prefab argument to a liberal in possession of critical thinking skills.

And so they get crushed. And then they're hurt and either run away with their tales between their legs or start name calling. And who do they blame for their failure? Why the liberal of course. Because it couldn't possibly be the masters of propaganda that feed their fears, stroke their egos and fill their brains with such lies and mush in the first place!

Yes, it's fricken funny, yes it's entertaining, but in the end it's also really quite sad. Wake up Cons, you're being manipulated!

If one must lie to advance one's thoughts, one's thoughts are not advanced.
