Occupy Solidarity

It's time to take back our Democracy and Freedom of Speech.  The United States is no longer a true Democracy, it is now a Plutocracy.  You either care about it, or you don't. 

Start educating yourself on the topics, issues, and groups that have been at the core of eroding our Democracy and Free Speech.  Start fighting back, before there is nothing left for you to defend and fight for.

You owe it to yourself, your children, the ones you love, and to your Country to stand up, be counted and make  your voice heard.  You have a moral, ethical, and humanitarian responsibility to make America and the world a better place, and to stop all the lies, and constant bullshit (you know, the statue of the bull outside the New York Stock Exchange Building).

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of

"The notion that a radical is one who hates his country is naive and usually idiotic.  He is more likely one who likes his country more than the rest of us, and is therefore more disturbed than the rest of us when he sees it debauched.  He is not a bad citizen turning to crime, he is a good citizen, driven to despair."
-H. L. Mencken

Mass Media Misrepresenting the Occupy Movement

So, the things you've heard about Occupy have been negative?  They are a bunch of dirty hippies who need to take a shower and then get a job!  They don't have a message.  They don't have a message worth hearing.  They are the 99%, ......the 99% of what?  They are just a bunch of radicals and they don't represent me.

Well, the mainstream, corporate owned media hasn't been telling you the truth.  That's because they are backed by big Corporate money sponsors, and they've sold out to that money.....instead of the unvarnished truth.  You've been duped by the mainstream media.

This video represents a cross section of people who are a part of the Occupy Movement and exactly what they believe in and stand for.  They gathered from across the nation and met in Solidarity for the Iowa Caucus.  They want true justice across the board, and you don't reduce all of these issues to just one simple minded slogan that you paste on some damn bumper sticker slogan.....like all of the Politicians do.  All of these issues are inter linked and all of them must be addressed in a true democracy!

The Cancer of Syria Must Be Eradicated

Psychopath Assad of Syria Must Go

March 8, 2012
by R.L.L.

Assad of Syria must be eradicated.  This is the 21st Century, and there is no appetite for dictators anywhere on the globe.  Communication is fast and goes global.  The news about injustice travels within seconds all around the globe now.  There are very few dark corners left for the scum of the earth to hide in any more.

Assad is not a leader.  A true leader doesn't lead by intimidation, fear, and murder.  Only psychopaths do that.  Assad has, and continues to murder men, women, children, and babies.

Assad is a punk.  Assad is a coward.  Assad is a cancer upon the earth.  A few people in his close circle, including some military, have abandoned him.  The others that continue to stand by him are nothing more than cowards, and additional spots of cancer that need to be eradicated along with Assad.

Nobody of any worth will lose sleep over Assad if someone parks a bullet in his diseased brain.  Live as a psychopath, and die as a psychopath!

Good riddance to Assad the Psychopath!  It's only a matter of time Assad, when the world will be rid of you!  The sooner, the better!

Egyptian Military is Perfect Example of Thugs at Work

Egyptian Military Uses Sadistic,
Physical Brutality Against
 Protesting Females

The Egyptian Military is not a friend, nor a defender of the people.  The following video is all the proof needed to reject any idea of allowing the Egyptian Military to represent the Egyptian people in their quest for Freedom, and a more democratic society.  Only fools and jackasses would not fight back against such brutality.

All human beings have the right to defend themselves from acts of barbarity.  Being a Martyr only gets you dead.  In order to defend yourself, there comes a time when you must fight fire with fire.  A bully is a bully, no matter what form they come in or what country they reside in.

Bullies only respect one thing......when you stand up to them and fight back!  If you don't, they will continue brutalizing you, and eventually kill you.  You must have the courage to put all bullies out of circulation.  If anyone tells you otherwise, it's pure bullshit!

Called for by Occupy Oakland

San Diego........LA........Oakland........Portland........Tacoma........Seattle
........and others.

In solidarity with the struggles of Longshoreman against EGT and Port Truckers against Goldman Sachs.

Marine Veteran Scott Olsen will join the IVAW Bay Area Chapter to march with the 99% in Oakland, CA...the city whose militarized Police critically injured him.

Do you want to try it a second time Oakland Police Department, or any other PD?  Do you want to risk it?  Are you ready to show the world more of your brutality?  Who do you serve?  We already know who you serve.  You serve your corporately owned and corrupted masters, and you have no honor or credibility of any kind.  We already know which organizations and people got together behind the scenes, on a national level, to coordinate the attacks and raids.

What's your next move?  Will the military be called out, and what do you think the final outcome of that would be?  Will a new law be invoked to label American protesters as "terrorists", so that your corrupted masters can lock them up indefinitely?  Good luck with that.

What do you think the history books will write about you?  Have you ever read a history book?  Probably not.  In your mind, your only "following orders."  You should read up on "only following orders" in a few history books and find out what they have to say about people like you.  It's not very flattering.  And that alone, shows your ignorance as a human being living in the 21st Century.  There is no acceptable excuse for your ignorance.  Ignorance is not an excuse.  It's a "Cop" out.

Congratulations to Occupy Oakland Protesters
for Successful Port Blockade!

Occupy Oakland successfully closed down the Port for a second time!  On Dec. 12th, you once again showed the 1%, and the historically brutal Oakland PD, that you mean business......and that it's no longer going to be "business as usual".  They have been put on notice.

Thanks to Spencer for spotting and recording the Riot Police ahead of time.  But it didn't go too good for you Riot Cops, did it?  You were way outnumbered.  How come you didn't attack this time?  What do you think changed for you?  You should be questioning your Corporate Masters about this.  You were all dressed up, with no where to go.  You just looked like the silly bunch of goons that you are.  Once again, you were way overdressed for the party.  But hey, thanks for the laughs you provided to us observers.  You silly little storm troopers!

Do you think the presence of Marine Veteran Scott Olsen being there, as promised, had anything to do with your Corporate Masters not giving you the orders to go in and end the protest, and open up that Port?  Do you think your Corporate Masters backed off because they couldn't risk the negative publicity and backlash that all of you would suffer if you injured Marine Veteran Scott Olsen a second time?

Maybe you Riot Cops should go tear gas your Corporate Masters, for making you look so foolish doing their dirty work for them.

Did you notice that Time Magazine named the Person of the Year as "The Protester"?  They didn't name you Riot Cops nor your Corporate Masters as the "Person of the Year".  If you and your Corporate Masters are in the right, then why did Time Magazine not name you?  Why do you think that is?  You'd better start asking yourself if you're in the right line of work, and on the right side of history.

Check out what Dr. Arthur Chen of Oakland had to say in the Time Magazine about Occupy Oakland.  I suppose you Riot Cops, and your Corporate Masters would like to label him as a dirty hippie too ha?

UCare Pushes Thousands of the Disabled and Poor into UCare Without Express Consent

Ucare has been trying to drum up more business for themselves for some time.  They tried by sending out glossy advertisements designed to entice you into thinking they had a fantastic HMO that you should join.  But of course they didn't provide any useful details to prove how they had anything better for you than what you already have with your current medical providers.  They provided a postage paid postcard for you to mail to them before they would give you any actual details of their UCare HMO......and a box they would like you to put a check mark in, giving them permission "for a sales person to call me."  And the postcard address was marked ATTN SALES.

Duhhhhh, what does that tell you?  It doesn't take a genius to figure out they are trying to drum up more business because they love and want the extra income since this program is paid by the State and Federal government.

Like the majority of people, you just throw it out with the rest of the junk mail.  Sure as in the hell don't want another sales person calling you, do you?  And if your basically satisfied with your current health providers, why would you want to upset and disrupt your current medical care?  You wouldn't.  If your current providers aren't working out for you, fine, check and see if UCare would be better for your particular situation.  No problem.  If your content with what you have, throw the UCare HMO sales crap away.

But......and it's a big but......

The UCare advertising obviously didn't drum up the new amount of business they wanted.  UCare had lobbyists working for them, and the lobbyists went to work on the Minnesota State legislature.  And we all know the kind of crap lobbyists pull and do to us.  And one of the UCare lobbyists is Joel Ulland, and his phone number is 612-676-3245, just in case you'd like to give him a piece of your mind.  Be forewarned, he's silver tongued and will try to charm you right out of your anger.....that's what he's paid to do....he's a lobbyist.

So here's how it works.......here's how the deception was perpetrated

Remember all the outcries and push back from the public against Facebook because of some of its less than above board practices?  You know, the sneaky way you'd have to deliberately 'Opt Out' of allowing them to do whatever they want with information about you, to third parties when you don't want them doing that.  That pisses people off.  Common sense tells you that the correct way to do things is for companies to ask for your permission....not just do whatever the hell they want to do to you, and then after they've already done it, you are forced to tell them that you 'Opt Out' of allowing them to screw you over one way or another, or they get to keep right on doing it.  The damage has already been done.  Now your trying to play the catch up game to stop a continuance and future misuse of your privacy and other things.

Remember, UCare is trying to sell you something.  They receive big sums of money from the government if they can get you to become their customer.  They want that money above everything else.  Money, money, money.  The direct marketing sales post card they sent you, didn't work.  So they sent their lobbyists in to work on the Minnesota State Legislature and they cut a deal, and what a deal they got!

They were able to automatically enroll thousands of the Disabled and poor people into their UCare Medicaid program, and you had to 'Opt Out' if you didn't want to be forced into their HMO program........very much like the tactics of Facebook.  And now people are going through hell trying to 'Opt Out' of the program, and get their original health providers back in place.  Heads need to roll because of this.

It's wrong.  It's deceptive.  Just think of the scams you'd be signed up for if you had to 'Opt Out' of everything in life!  You'd be paying for sets of Encyclopedias you never intended to buy, vacuum cleaners, new cars, magazine subscriptions, cell phone contracts, rental agreements, and the list goes on to infinity.  You'd be pissed off because some damn lobbyists rubbed elbows with your state legislatures to make it legal for them to do that to you.  You'd be grabbing your pitch forks and torches and making the responsible parties pay the price of hell.

A lot of the people responsible for this should automatically be 'Opted Out' of their jobs!

.........stay tuned, more to come soon!

Read this article by Donna Smith on how the Health Care System is using a scam called various things like "Health and Wellness" programs to rake in tons of money, when they really don't care about addressing your real life medical needs.

Outrageous Footage of Minneapolis Cop Physically Pushing Unarmed Protester With Squad Car!

Patrol car being used to physically push protester Devin Wynn

If a citizen were driving his/her car, and a pedestrian stood in front of your car on purpose, what would be the sensible thing to do?  Well, one would think about putting the car in REVERSE and backing up, NOT keep the car in DRIVE and simply push the person in front of your vehicle.  That would clearly be an assault with a deadly weapon.  Hopefully, you wouldn't be retarded enough to purposely use your car to PUSH the person out of your way.

What about a trained Police Officer?  Watch what this Pig does in a similar situation in Minneapolis, MN, during a protest against a foreclosed home.

"If you stand for nothing, you fall for anything."

Minnesota Companies Parking Billions of Dollars in Offshore Bank Accounts

The Securities and Exchange Commission has documents showing that three Minnesota companies have approximately $15.2 Billion Dollars in profits, sitting in offshore Bank accounts.

Medtronic (Fridley, MN)
$7.22 Billion Dollars Parked in Offshore Bank Account

Medtronic is the world's largest medical device company.  They are readily known as a producer of Pacemaker/Defibrillators inserted into the upper chest cavity of heart failure patients........and they are also known for a continued string of lawsuits against them, and a history of placing profits above patients and the community they constantly profess to be serving!

May 2012
Medtronic will lay off 2,000 employees.....Medtronic will pay $85 Million Dollars to end Shareholder Lawsuit

What's Going On?

In 2008 the U.S. Department of Justice served Medtronic a subpoena as they investigated the charges against Medtronic for practicing off-label uses, and illegal marketing of their InFuse bone repair product.  The use of InFuse in neck surgeries can, and in some cases has lead to problems swallowing, breathing, and speaking in patients.  And in some ot those cases required additional surgeries.

In 2008, the Minneapolis Firefighters Relief Association filed a lawsuit against Medtronic for false and misleading public statements about InFuse.  The Firefighters group manages pension funds for Minneapolis Firefighters and their families.

In 2011 a medical journal charged that Medtronic downplayed the side effects associated with InFuse, including a condition that can cause infertility in men.  The medical journal also pointed to the fact that the medical studies of InFuse were carried out by consultants paid by Medtronic.

An Ongoing History of Problems and Lack of Quality Control with Medtronic Medical Products

In 2007 Medtronic was forced to recall it's Sprint Fidelis product, a group of flexible wires or leads, that connect a defibrillator to the interior of the heart.  They were failing at an alarming rate, causing unnecessary shocks, or failing to deliver a shock when needed; in which either situation can prove to be lethal to the heart patient.

Continuing studies since the recall, (disputed by Medtronic), strongly suggests that the failure rate of already- implanted Sprint Fidelis leads has been increasing exponentially!

$5.60 Billion Dollars Parked in Offshore Bank Account
General Mills
$2.40 Billion Dollars Parked in Offshore Bank Account

This is just the tip of the iceberg.  I have minimized my reporting of this situation to you on purpose.  In total there is actually about $2 Trillion Dollars in profits sitting in offshore Banks accounts by other major companies that are sure to surprise you.


Into The Fire
Into The Fire

Our neutral, peaceful, neighbor Canada.  Mainstream news media in the United States hasn't been showing us what's been going on in Canada.  Can you afford to remain in the dark?  Do you really want to hide your head in the sand.......if your a coward you will.  And then let yourself fall into shock the day you witness for yourself what has already been happening in the United States.

Canada is an example of the Police State that you didn't even know was going on.  It's already been replicating itself in the United States while you were asleep and in a state of denial.  It's been happening in Oakland, Seattle, NYC, and other major US cities.  And your mainstream media has been negligent in reporting this news to you, in the depth and scope that a free press is obligated to do.  Our corrupt Congress no longer represents true Democracy.

Your Civil Rights are being trashed, and most of you don't even realize it.  But you will.  And you'll have yourself to blame for that.  One way or another, you'll be swept up in it, whether you like it or not.  The lines are already being drawn as to what side of history you'll be on.

Police (Pigs) Sadistically Pepper Spray UC Davis Students

UPDATE: NOV. 21, 2011: Police Chief and two other officers put on administrative leave

The saying that, if you put lipstick on a Pig, it's still a Pig, sure does hold true.  Here's another video that proves it again!  Mindless Pigs taking their orders from the corrupted commanders above them.

It's truly amazing that these ass wipe Pigs haven't learned the lessons from the past.  They obviously were never taught anything about history, and what eventually happens when you continue to torture your citizens who have every legal right to do what they are doing.

These kind of cops are on the wrong side of history, and so far, the majority of Cops have their heads so far up their ass holes that they will never see the light of day.  Screw them!

Cops (Pigs) Viciously Beat Berkeley Students

For young people their comes a time of realization that the Police are not always nice, and they are not your friend.  There are times, when the Police become the PIGS.  They become the Pigs when they use overly excessive force against unarmed people.  An example of when they earn the name of Pigs, is when they beat unarmed, young female and male students alike.

The Pigs beat unarmed Berkeley students.  The Pigs really enjoy using their "coporate" batons to carry out corporal punishment.

Public Schools Are a Mess
Schools Are Killing Creativity

People have been bitching about the fact that our students are rapidly falling behind in the quality of education they receive, when compared to other countries.  Our schools seem to be lousy at teaching, and providing our children with what other countries are doing for their kids.  Well, the adults in the USA, the administrators of our schools, are pretty much a bunch of dumb shits, and they've been dumb shits for decades.  Nothing new there.

The administrators fall into the category of, "the masses are asses." They follow the same failing practices that have gone on before them, and they wonder why our schools are so boring for students. Schools don't have to be boring you jackasses!  But they are boring because so many school administrators are plain out dullards.

And you are dullards because your failing our young people.  And that earns you the title of dullard.

Moyers & Company

The humorist Andy Borowitz says it would be nice to spend billions on schools and roads,
but right now that money is desperately needed for political ads.  Sure enough, our political
class is wallowing in cash, most of it going to your local TV stations.  Last week, NBC
reported that total spending on ads by both sides in the presidential race had surpassed
$600 million: $318.5 million for Team Romney, $287.2 million for Team Obama.

And get this: More than half of all that money for ads has been spent in just three swing
states – Florida, Ohio and Virginia.  What's more, huge sums – not only for ads but for
get-out-the-vote efforts like mailings and robocalls -- are going into House and Senate
races in the fight to control Congress.

Altogether, three billion dollars in campaign cash have been raised so far, and a projected
$6 billion by the election, less than seven weeks away.  It's not just that we're being hit by
swarms of ads thicker than locusts.  What's truly frightening is that we don't know who's
really paying for them.

Letters Expose Koch Brothers

The brothers Charles and David Koch own and operate several oil refineries in a number of states, including the one in Rosemount, Minnesota.  They are also the company behind well known brands such as, Stainmaster Carpet, Dixi Cups, Brawny Paper Towels, Lycra Fibers, and Georgia - Pacific Lumber.

David Koch started the neutral - sounding group Americans for Prosperity Foundation, which has been linked to the Tea Party, and training them to use talking points for Tea Party Activists to use.  The Koch brothers do this in a covert manner in order to further their own Corporate agenda.  They do it behind the scenes by using the angry rhetoric of the Tea Party to push their own greedy corporate interests.

BP - The Worst Enviromental Disaster In History Caused By Placing Profits Over Safety

BP Disaster History

An incredible investigation into the systemic failure of BP management to place profits over safety and human life.  BP already had a very bad track record before the Gulf Coast Deepwater Horizon oil spill.

At their Texas City oil refinery it was typical for them to have a fire every week, and finally, in 2005 there was a horrific explosion and fire that killed 15 people, and injured another 170 people.

In 2006, on the north slope in Alaska they had an oil spill of 260,000 gallons from a pipeline that management had been told that the lines were going to break.  Much of the infrastructure at the Alaska site was built to only last until 1987, at which time they were supposed to be pulled out and replaced.  But they never did this, and they continued to run everything to predictable failure all for profit motives.

Then their Thunderhorse facility toppled over into the water due to a number of valves installed backwards.  Once again, due to a rush to making profits.

By 2010 they had over 100 rigs in the Gulf Coast region, and they received generous subsidies and limited penalties if something went wrong.

The laws had no teeth over these type of companies, and because of this, BP was able to be a repeat offender over and over again.

The Deepwater Horizon oil rig was dubbed "The Well From Hell" by employees working there.  The explosion and fire of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig killed 11 people, and injured another 17 people.

BP is also infamous for pressuring injured people to sign gag orders that force them not to be able to speak against the company in any way, or the people will not be fairly compensated for their losses.  This is a very typical tactic of many corporations, and BP is an excellent example of a bottom feeder entity.

Robert Reich is a well respected economist who tells it like it really is.  Republicans can't stand him because he tells the truth the way it really is......which Republicans hate because they believe in fairy tales, big business, deregulation of financial institutions, no universal health care, wars for profit, and God.....but only their god, because to them there is only one correct religion.  And when someone is educated with a college degree, they put the label of being an elitist on them, but it's hypocritical of them because they sure do like to send all of their children off to college.

Hillary Clinton Wants to be President.  What a Shock Ha?  NOT!

Queen Hillary

Hillary and her baggage

Editorial by R.L.

So Hillary Clinton wants to be the next President?  Who'd have guessed it?  Stop the press, and print up the new headlines for all of America to be shocked when they hear the paper boy on the corner yelling, "Read All About It, Read All About It, Hillary Clinton announces she's running for President!"  Yawn.  Borrrrrrrring.  More lost revenues for the already failing newspapers around the country.  Ever wonder why they lose money?  There are lots of reason, but one of them is acting like this would be some kind of news to yell out at the top of your lungs. Another carnival side show huckster.

Here we go again.  Hillary Clinton for President.  Just another rat brained politician.  Her ambitions for life became painfully obvious when she didn't kick her no good cheating husband, Bill, to the curb for his sexual affair, and his lies about it, with the politically star struck young female that he fooled around with in the White House.

Bill had a lot more political connections and clout than Hillary had, and has on her own.  She needed him for her own selfish political career.  Who are these people?  What mud swamp are they born in?

The major problem with Hillary is that she comes with more baggage than we would like her to be carrying....namely, her husband Bill!  If she became the next President, then we'd have that creep of a husband of hers living in the White House with her.  Once is enough!  These are the two most power hungry couple we've seen in a long time.

Why We Won't Truly Win the Iraq War


"Peace cannot be kept by force; it can only be achieved by understanding."
Albert Einstein

"Bush and Bin Laden are really on the same side: the side of faith and violence against the side of reason and discussion.  Both have implacable faith that they are right and the other is evil.  Each believes that when he dies he is going to heaven.  Each believes that if he could kill the other, his path to paradise in the next world would be even swifter.  The delusional "next world" is welcome to both of them.  This world would be a much better place without either of them. "
Richard Dawkins

Editorial by R.L.

The United States won't win this war.  It's not winnable for many reasons.  First of all we didn't start off on the moral high ground to win this war.  Bush straight out lied about Iraq having Weapons of Mass Destruction as the major reason to launch his war against Iraq.

The disgraceful torture practices exposed at Abu Ghraib Prison didn't do anything positive to endear us to the rest of the world, to ourselves, nor any of our enemies, or future enemies.  And with Bush's continued belief that the use of torture is appropriate under certain circumstances, only serves as an example to the rest of the world that we are not as civilized as we profess to be.

Bush and his administration allowed torture!  Think about that.  If Bush is such a christian man, as he claims to be, does he also think that if Jesus were sitting across from him, that Jesus would agree to using torture on his enemies?  If not, then how can Bush truly justify torture.....and profess himself to be a "born again christian?"

Another aspect of this war is that it has developed in to a bunch religious fanatics waging war against each other.  The Christians declare that you can't get into heaven unless you believe in Jesus Christ, and that he was the son of God, and so you are doomed to an eternity in hell if you do not accept this.  The people of the Muslim faith are well aware of the Christian beliefs, and of course resent such proclamations.  Some radical Muslims believe that if they become a martyr they will be rewarded with seventeen virgins (others say seventy two virgins) when they get into heaven.  Who dreams up all these whacky ideas?  It's the age long battle cry of "my God is the real god, the only god, yours isn't.....your a sinner.....your an infidel."

Did you know only one third of the world is composed of Christianity, and the remaining two thirds of the world is made up of Muslims and all of the other religions of the world?  Christianity is in the minority, not the majority.

Iraq is such a mess, that it may be advisable to have troops of Psychiatrists tending to the overwhelming needs of the population. They're needed to address the left over effects of a brutal dictator, and the Post Traumatic Stress Disorder from all the bloodshed, kidnappings, bombings, and generations of pent up grudges between all the different groups and factions of people.

This is an expensive war.  It's costing the taxpayers over $200 million dollars per day!  Are you satisfied with the results?

President Bush Gives "Surge" Speech on January 10, 2007

Liars and more liars

Editorial by R.L

Well, the stumble bum was at it again!  He still can't get through a speech without sounding like he has a wad of gum in the way of his tongue.  Ladies and Gentleman, he's going to send an additional
surge of 21,500 troops in to Iraq.  17,000 of them will be in Baghdad.  A surge?  What the hell is that?  It's supposed to hold Baghdad together.  BULL!

I'll tell you what this surge REALLY is.  Once again it's a losing proposition and strategy by Bush and his administration.  It's a cover for what is really going on.  Britain announced they are going to pull out 3,000 of their troops.  And look at all the other countries that have already pulled troops out over time, which just leaves more and more gapping holes in the number of our own military personnel over in Iraq.  So, this isn't extra military personnel in the form of a powerful surge that Bush is sending over there.  It's a fill up and plug the hole in the number of reduced military support from other countries.  We're not getting stronger, we are definitely getting weaker!  End of story.

Bush is fond of claiming that he has a plan, and that the people who disagree with him don't offer any plans of their own to address this war.  Lots of people are sick of hearing this defense from Bush.  The bottom line is that Bush got us in to this mess, through all of his lies, and he needs to take full responsibility in undoing the tremendous damage, and future damage he has brought upon America.  Bush is like a delinquent child.  He gets himself in to trouble, and then when he's caught he just spews out more lies and digs his hole deeper.  It's like a neighbor who gets in to trouble with the law and ends up in jail.  You tell him he shouldn't have done what he did, and should not have lied in court, and maybe he could have averted being sent to jail.  He continues to give you double talk, and instead of going straight, he'd like you to do his jail time for him.  And in effect, that's what our country and military people are doing....paying for his lies....and paying with their lives...that's too high of a cost!

Bush Appointed Mike Brown to Fema and You Trust Bush to Run, and Win a War?
Your Out of Your Mind!

FEMA is a Joke

The Quack Mike Brown
Editorial by R.L.

Remember Hurricane Katrina?  Remember Bush appearing on television, standing next to Brown and telling Brown that he was doing a great job?  Yeah, dumb and dumber.  Lies and more lies.  Bush should have been impeached a long time ago!

Bush appointed Mike Brown to the position of Deputy Chief of FEMA in January 2003.  Mike Brown was just another, in a long list, of unqualified Bush cronies!  Want proof that Brown was unqualified?  Okay.

The last job Brown held before being appointed by Bush to the FEMA position was as the head of an Arabian Horse Association.  Outrageous isn't it?  Now there's a hell of a job qualification for you to get a Federal job ha?  What a jump up the job ladder.  How many breaks have you had like that?  None?
Guess you don't have the right kind of connections....or you don't embellish and lie enough.

A 2001 White House press release said Brown had worked for the city of Edmund, Oklahoma from 1975 to 1978.  It said his job was "overseeing the emergency services division."  Not the truth, because Claudia Deakins,  head of public relations for the city of Edmond, said that Brown was an "assistant to the city manager from 1977 to 1980, not a manager himself, and had no authority over other employees. The assistant is more like an intern. Department heads did not report to him."

Hmmm, sounds a lot like college kid job doesn't it?

Then there's a legal web site called FindLaw.com provided by lawyers or their offices.  There's a section for you to list your "Honors and Awards", and Brown wrote: "Outstanding Political Science Professor, Central State University". 
Again, that's just not true!  Charles Johnson, the News Bureau Director in the University Relations office at the University of Central Oklahoma (formerly known as Central State University), said that  Brown "wasn't a professor here, he was only a student here.  He may have been an adjunct instructor, but that title is very different from that of "professor."

Hmmm, are you noticing a pattern going on here with Brown?

Concerning Katrina, Brown also committed perjury when he testified under oath about his handling the hurricane response.  Brown testified that Louisiana Gov. Blanco’s August 27th request to the President for a federal emergency declaration excluded Orleans, Jefferson and Plaquerines parishes.

The true facts were that Blanco had requested the President to declare a disaster in “all the southeastern parishes,” which includes Orleans, Jefferson and Plaquerines.

You voted for Bush?  What were you thinking?  Were you thinking?


Editorial by R.L.

If you did vote for George W. Bush at any time, shame on you!  What were you thinking?  Were you thinking?  You'll be very hard pressed to prove that you are capable of thinking.  Critical thinking wasn't required when looking over this loser.  Common sense thinking was required, and you failed miserably!

Lots of people were quoted as saying they'd feel comfortable sitting down and drinking a beer with him.  That's one of your criteria for selecting a President?  Why don't you just run down to your local tavern and pick your most friendly beer chugalugger and promote him/her for all your Presidential candidates then?  Sadly, there are probably plenty of you that would!

Being able to speak and pronounce words and sentences somewhat fluently, does not appear to be of much importance to you either.  The man flubbed up so many words when speaking he was and is a laughing stock for every late night television comedian, and for everyone else around the work place water cooler.

You already knew his dad was a huge disappointment.  Remember the "read my lips" statement?  Why did you presume that his son would be any better than his father?  Are you truly that gullible?  Obviously, yes.

Maybe what sold you on Bush #2 was his being "born again statements".  Oh great!  Now we have this religious hard head who's led us into what is in many ways a religious war in the twenty first century.  Thanks a lot!

It is rumored that Harriet Miers learned her application of cosmetics from Alice Cooper, and the band members of KISS.  Whatever, who wants those spooky eyes staring down at them from the bench......or from anywhere for that matter.

We already knew Bush was mentally challenged, but now there appears to be strong, circumstantial evidence that he's visually challenged.

Bush had stated that Miers was the "most qualified" person to sit on the US Supreme court seat.  Oh no!  Mr. Bush, does that mean that anyone else will be second fiddle?  We have no other better choices?  You said she was the most qualified?  The most?  The Best?  Whatever shall we do now?  You're frightening us President Bush!  Save us from ourselves!

Current Story Line:  Some US Military Troops Appear to Use Arnold Schwarzenegger School Yard Language
News Source:

An Australian TV station aired incriminating footage of  US soldiers stationed in Afghanistan burning Taleban corpses.  The footage also shows other troops taunting the residents of a nearby village because they believed that the village was harboring the Taleban.

The troops alleged taunting message that was piped through speakers to the village was: "You are too scared to retrieve their bodies - this just proves you are the lady boys we always believed you to be."

Lady Boys?  Doesn't this smack strongly of Arnold Schwarzenegger's name calling using the phrase of "Girlie-Men"?

You have to ask yourself what in the hell is going on here?  Are these people totally NUTS?  Another proud day for America ha?  That sure helps us out with some kind of a moral high ground doesn't it?

The footage describes the scene where two Taleban fighters corpses were laid out facing Mecca and then being burned in what the reporter, John Martinkus, explains as a "deliberate desecration of Muslim beliefs".

The Islamic tradition requires that bodies be washed, prayed for, wrapped in white cloth, and then burned within 24 hours.

The soldiers had also yelled out through the speakers to the village: "Attention Taleban you are cowardly dogs.  You allowed your fighters to be laid down facing West and burnt."

The footage was taken in the village of Gonbaz located outside the southern city of Kandahar by the Australian cameraman Stephen DuPont.  He was embedded with a US forces unit.
