The Mega Corporation Election Circus is Over...For Awhile

Street-level Republicans are happy... just as they were in 1994, when pretty much the same thing happened in the mid-term elections. Since then, after Corporate Clinton completed his gig, we've had Bush & Obama...SSDD. Starting with Reagan and Thatcher, Neoliberals and Neoliberalism have prevailed to this very day.

Election 2014 - Final Thoughts

My being undecided, "independent", non-partisan is something of a glib inside joke in certain political circles, but as I stood in the voting kiosk yesterday, I paused, truly not sure what I was going to do.Unlike ridiculous Allison Grimes, I will not keep what I did a secret. Show More Summary

Final Thoughts For The Last 24 Hours

Not so random thoughts for your last day of election madness. My standard response to everyone who has asked me over the past three weeks, "It's gonna be close" Republicans are surging.

Elections, the Oligarchy, and Pointlessness in the USA

For decades and decades, "voting" in national elections in the USA has been largely pointless. Here's why.1. Most all national candidates are selected, groomed, and financed by the Oligarchy...regardless of political party. Should some...Show More Summary

Republicans Will Lose By Winning

Republicans are going to win and it is the worst thing that can happen to them. Although polls show Michelle Nunn and Jason Carter continue to keep David Perdue and Nathan Deal within their grasp, as happens with most elections in Georgia, after a brief high water mark for Democrats, the trends are shifting towards the Republicans.

The Emperor is not Wearing any Clothes

By "The Emperor", I'm referring not only to our President, but also to the U.S. Treasury, the Fed Reserve, the Justice Department in general, the NSA, The FBI, the SEC, the CIA, and the Pentagon. Without too much effort, I also could include the U.S. Show More Summary

The Obama Administration Violates the First Amendment

In an earlier post, I related the story of Frontline's piece, "The United States of Secrets"... truly a MUST-SEE film for anyone who loves Liberty. This past Sunday, 60 Minutes essentially re-told a portion of that same piece in a story entitled, "The War on Leaks". Show More Summary

Libertarian for Bobby Shriver

Obama's Wars = NeoCon, Kabuki Theater

On Democracy Now!, Jeremy Scahill (author of the NYT bestseller, Dirty Wars) described Obama's drone wars as "Kabuki Theater". He implicitly referred to the Iraqi-Syrian ISIS War as the same.

Obama, George Orwell, Propaganda, and War

If I didn't know better, I'd say that Barack Obama is channeling the spirit of George Orwell. Remember Orwell's classic, 1984? That book easily could be re-issued with the title, 2014. In the dystopian 1984, we have "doublethink", the power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one's mind simultaneously... Show More Summary

Obama's Latest War Propaganda

On 60 Minutes this past Sunday, Our President essentially said this (paraphrased) about the current ISIS war: it's not really a war; instead, it's counter-terrorism. The unmitigated gall of the man finally has surpassed that of Dubya Bush & Dick Cheney...which I didn't think was possible. Show More Summary

Obama's Lies Increase in Size and Number it weren't so tragic, it would be absolutely comical.1. A President decides that he alone can launch a war.2. Problem: The Constitution says otherwise.3. Show More Summary

Obama Should be Impeached for...

violating the Constitution and his Oath to preserve, protect, and defend it. Finally, a Law Professor and the editorial board of the NYT agree with my assessment of the Constitution. At least now someone does... publicly. So, why aren't the Repubs all over this? Probably because they want the same illegal power that Obama has. Show More Summary

Fanatics, Oligarchs, Propaganda, and What's Really Important

Below is my Reply to a friend's email & an article he attached. Another attempt to paint all Muslims as terrorists. Mohammed was warlike because when Islam was founded, polytheistic beliefs reigned supreme at the time in that region of Arabia, & their adherents all attacked Muslims...attempting to run them out of the region or kill them.
