Empire, formerly known as the United States of America, has little reason to become a home for the 99%. The inhabitants of Empire are hopelessly mired in the distractions being fed them, too lazy to take it upon themselves to do anything about the bullshit the government is foisting upon …Continue Reading
I’m watching the death of the Democratic Party happen in slow motion. In fact, it’s happening way too slowly. We the people could help the process along by walking away from the party. Lord knows, the Democrats surely do not deserve anybody’s loyalty at this stage of the pitiful game. …Continue Reading
It is not just the Democrats who haven’t learned a thing. Those being drawn like moths to a flame haven’t learned much either.Continue Reading
“Reform will come and only come through the building of mass movements and alternative centers of power that can overthrow – let me repeat that word for Homeland Security – overthrow the corporate state. If we fail to sever these chains, we will become like many who did not rise …Continue Reading
It has been a long eight years under the Obama regime. He is now officially a lame duck, and it’s time to look back on the cult of personality that surrounds the Obama family. It is also time to look at the guy’s record. It simply doesn’t square with all …Continue Reading
This post was inspired by one simple act. It was inspired by a quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers who chose not to stand up during the National Anthem. With that one simple act of civil disobedience, the Internet exploded. Americans, with their usual chest-banging American exceptionalism attitude, were out …Continue Reading
Oh, boo fucking hoo on the Democratic Party. They’re worried. Yep. Rumor has it that Democratic Party operatives are worried about what kind of “image” it might project or what kind of “message” it might send about Hillary Clinton when the Clinton Global Initiative hosts its yearly playground of political …Continue Reading
I wasn’t going to blog today. Nope. I was going to sleep because waking up at 1:30 a.m. to deliver newspapers is torture. And being someone unable to sleep during the day makes it that much more difficult. So, instead, I’m writing. And I’m writing because I am sufficiently pissed …Continue Reading
“I won’t tell you who to vote for and if I ever do, don’t listen to me.” -Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) By any stretch of the imagination, this has been an ugly primary season. I cannot find one redeeming feature of this experience, except for the candidacy of Senator Bernie …Continue Reading
“Most Americans are taught in school that fascism is a ruthless one party dictatorship, the most popular example being Nazi Germany. This is a misconception. Fascism is a political economy, not merely a political system that existed in one moment of history. Fascism, as defined by Black revolutionary and assassinated …Continue Reading
I spend a lot of time on Facebook. Ever since Hillary Clinton was formally installed this past week, I’ve seen a pretty steady stream from the Clintonistas about how we either have to, Unite behind the Democratic Party and Hillary Clinton in order to save America from Donald Trump, or …Continue Reading
“A cult of personality arises when an individual uses mass media, propaganda, or other methods to create an idealized, heroic, and at times worshipful image, often through unquestioning flattery and praise.” I have literally a ton-shit of material I want to devote this blog to over the next, say, five years…give …Continue Reading
Below is the content of a letter I wrote and sent to Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Chairwoman of the DNC, with a cc to Amy Dacey, CEO of the DNC. May 19, 2016 Dear Chairwoman Schultz: You could consider this a wake-up call, although I highly doubt that you …Continue Reading
If you haven’t yet figured out that the permanently corrupt establishment Democrats, their boot-licking billionaire sponsors, and the corporate-owned lamestream media are trying to deep six the Sanders revolution, you need to wake up and Occupy Reality. I spend a lot of time on Facebook these days, and I don’t …Continue Reading
Part Two: I Will Not Vote For Hillary Clinton in 2016, and I Am Done With the Democratic Party. Here’s Why.
I’m back on part two of my article on Hillary Clinton, and why I will not support her if she is the nominated candidate for the Democratic Party. In this part, I will also explain my rejection of the Democratic Party after years of being a loyal member. Hillary Clinton …Continue Reading
As you can see, I have not written on this blog since 2014, and that’s because I’ve been totally politically disenfranchised throughout Barack Obama’s two terms. Simply put, Obama was the ultimate establishment politician. As a candidate on the hunt, he was an eloquent speaker espousing populist and progressive positions …Continue Reading
I turned sixty years old in February, and I’ve been voting for a very long time. Through all my political voting years, I’ve never voted anything but Democrat. I simply do not vote Republican. The fact that I am a lesbian prevents me from doing so. That’s the double whammy …Continue Reading
And now, it’s time for another episode of “The Good. The Bad. And the Ugly.” It is proudly brought to you by the American political establishment, in conjunction with the pack of moronic fuckwits who enable it (and we can include the American people in that mix). Warren continues to …Continue Reading
The perfect storm of events came together over the past few weeks that made me come out of the closet on the issue of 9-11. Yes, that 9-11. First, Phillip Marshall, who wrote The Big Bamboozle: 9-11 and the War on Terror (highly recommended reading) was found dead, along with …Continue Reading
We live in Zombie America. There are Zombies on both sides: We have Republican Zombies. These are the people who want to eat the middle class and the poor. The we have Zombies on the other side of the aisle. These are the Zombies who get rabid when people (like …Continue Reading
Oh, it’s time for another edition of The Good. The Bad. And the Ugly. Funny, there’s always more of The Bad. And the Ugly. Such is the state of American politics. Proving that she’s very, very good Elizabeth Warren, the freshman Senator from Massachusetts, is living up to her …Continue Reading
I’ve been totally flabbergasted with this nation’s response to the prospect of meaningful gun control legislation in the wake of the Sandy Hook massacre. I thought I’d seen and heard just about everything in my lifetime. Boy, was I wrong. The bullshit that’s been flying around the airwaves and in …Continue Reading
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog. Here’s an excerpt: 4,329 films were submitted to the 2012 Cannes Film Festival. This blog had 33,000 views in 2012. If each view were a film, this blog would power 8 Film Festivals Click here to see …Continue Reading
Or the column formerly called “The Weekly Ying and Yang.” I’ve decided to take a different approach, primarily because I no longer write that column weekly. And also because there’s far more “yang” than “ying.” Therefore, I believe that the new title gives me more flexibility in both frequency and …Continue Reading
Ah, yes. My diatribe on the “moral high ground” has awoken the sleeping giant known as my good friend Ivan Hentschel. This is a good thing because I’ve been trying to get Ivan to send me a post for about two years. I knew sooner or later I’d piss him …Continue Reading
Part Two of America the Immoral took me longer than I anticipated to put together. Better late than never. Here you have it. The continued war on women is immoral at its very core. Apparently the GOP didn’t get the message sent by women this past November, in spite of …Continue Reading
Don’t misread the headline. It doesn’t say “America the Immortal.” It does indeed say “America the Immoral.” As a political junkie, I spend a lot of time rooting around, digging up information, and generally keeping myself informed of the day-to-day events going on in America and abroad. We still have …Continue Reading
We’re a couple of days removed from the Newtown Massacre, and it is no less horrifying today than it was Friday. As a follow-up, I have posted on my Scribd site a PDF file of the NRA brochure that I mentioned in yesterday’s article on the Sandy Hook Elementary School. …Continue Reading
We’ve had yet another mass murder with guns, this time in Newtown, Connecticut. I know. I’ve heard all the laments. “Things like this don’t happen here.” Newtown is described as an “idyllic community.” I have, and this is no lie, no less than thirty posts on my Facebook timeline asking …Continue Reading
Yeah, I know. That’s an overused phrase. I was thinking of using The More Things Change, The More They Stay the Same, but that’s overused too. And, frankly, I feel as though I sound like a broken record. However, there’s no way around this damned post. I’m going to spend …Continue Reading
Before I finish my post-election article, I am putting the text of an open letter to the GOP here. Please feel free to use portions of this letter to write to your GOP elected officials no matter where you are. Our message must be heard over the next four years, …Continue Reading
It’s Wednesday, November 7, and I’m officially breathing a sigh of relief. I went to bed last night knowing gleefully that the only thing Mitt Romney is president of is the Wicked Losers Club. Yep. If you’re from Massachusetts, things almost couldn’t be any better. Elizabeth Warren is officially Senator …Continue Reading

"Reform will come and only come through the building of mass movements and alternative centers of power that can overthrow -- let me repeat that word for Homeland Security -- overthrow the corporate state. If we fail to sever these chains, we will become like many who did not rise up in time to save their civil society's human chattel. This means we too must defy the law and engage in civil disobedience."
