Politics of Hate

Warning: This will be a rant.

Everyday here in America shows another round of insanity that seems utterly improbable to occur. And yet it does.

Everyday the corruption becomes more entrenched, the populace more tortuously obedient and ignorant, and the world slowly dying.

Everyday creates a new bud of hatred for the system and a new blooming of resignation to the system.

Scott Beigel was my friend


Scott Beigel was a teacher. A cross country coach. A counselor. A son. A brother. A man soon to be married.

He died a hero for his actions Wednesday afternoon at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, where he taught geography and coached cross country.

Scott Beigel was also a childhood friend.

What Russiagate Conspiracy Theorists are Risking

The Russiagate conspiracy theorists - and yes, it is a conspiracy theory to argue Russia used cyber attacks to interfere in the 2016 election without producing clear factual evidence of said interference - have made the claim that Russia committed an act of cyberwar against the United States. They are demanding the US retaliate, beginning with economic sanctions. Unfortunately, that is not the only potential option going forward. Nukes are now on the table.

Just how insane is our Syrian policy?

The global war on terror has redefined what constitutes failure.
At one time sending kids to die in a generation-long quagmire without end in a narcostate would unquestionably constitute failure.
That is the situation in Afghanistan today, but no one in politics or the news media bothers to point out the obvious.
The bar for foreign policy failure has been lowered to a back-breaking limbo champion level.

Are Progressives Democratic Party Imperialists?

Are progressives democrats? And since it's a fact that the Democratic party, not just the "corporate democrats" and not just the "democratic party establishment", THE democratic party officially FULLY SUPPORTS U.S. imperialism, are progressives also imperialist warmongers?

HILARITY ALERT: Moon of Alabama Explains What the Indicted Russian Trolls Were Really Doing

While the MSM has been going bonkers in outrage over the dastardly attack on American democracy committed by 13 Russians — the tacit understanding being that they were operating on orders from Putin’s government — German analyst Moon of Alabama has calmly explained what these Russians were really up to:

The Weekly Watch

In Order to Form a More Perfect Oligarchy

If we are an Empire, who is the Emperor? There isn't one. It's a cabal. A cabal of billionaires and CEO's...integrated vertically and horizontally...united by profit...banks and money supply, the war machine, fossil fuels, big pharma and health insurance, food and seed production, congress and the courts...all while holding the big media megaphone...with tentacles reaching around the globe and into our local city, county, and state power structure. But the pressing issue of the day...and seemingly everyday...is what will T-rump tweet as the world burns?


In These Times We Could Use More Positive Stories of Those Challenging The System, Something The Media NEVER Touches (Especially When It Involves Socialism Taking Root In The Populace)

Hey there folks. Haven't had much time to get anything together here for a while, though I have loads of drafts sitting around. And don't anticipate that changing much for the near future, with this middle-aged father taking over full-time duties for two babies come the end of March.

(The ‘land of the free’?): PHOTOS: Since Standing Rock, 56 Bills Have Been Introduced in 30 States to Restrict Protests

Say goodbye to your right to free speech. Say goodbye to your right to protest, or even speak out. Our ‘representatives’ that we elect and pay to be OUR voice are going to make sure that we go to jail (and more) if we get all uppity and even dare trying speaking up for ourselves.

By no stretch of the imagination can this be justified.
