Too many Democrats have THIN SKINS

True progressives need to be fighters who relish the battle for justice,
and expect it to be uphill.


Schultz sounds like she was never really with us.

On most stations (which are owned by mega-corps like Comcast, Clear Channel, etc) it IS an agenda

Agreed.

The agenda is set at the highest levels.

Limbaugh was subsidized in his early years. Others are not subsidized. Why was he?

Because he served a corporate agenda.



Obvious cui bono.

Do more dishonest institutions than BIG CORPORATIONS exist in our society?

Typical mega-corporation, swimming in a sea of crony-capitalism...


You have to wonder what our elites are REALLY thinking...

When the media they own and control goes the "Full-Monty" on fear regarding a number of issues (Putin,ISIS, Ebola)
with terrorism leading the way.

This video brilliantly de-constructs the nauseating, but ominous phoniness of these so-called "authorities",
who are payed damn good money to LIE to us and manipulate our fears in our own mass-media.

Don't mean come off as a conspiracy-theorist, but thinking about the cui bono here
is a bit scary, to be honest.

Are We The People being set up?
And if so, for what?

I can't help thinking...

Nothing would stop a populist surge (based largely on economic issues), and feared by the elites,
like a big, shiny new war.


Know what I'm tryin' to say?

FOX ain't serving ISIS (directly), they are serving the Neocons

A solid block of FOX talking heads (blockheads? ) are well-known Neocons (WM Kristol, Krauthammer, etc).
The link between Fox and Neocons is inescapable and iron-clad.

The Neocons and US War-industry/MIC have the same goal as ISIS----Vast WAR, involving the whole world.
Yup.

They want it for different reasons---ISIS, apparently for some insane messianic vision (they are clearly
baiting many nations, 1-at-a-time), while
the Neocons/MIC want it for for $$$$ and global dominance (Project for The New American Century, etc).
Also, war is the best way to control those troublesome dissidents (an old fascist method).

Ultimately, both ISIS and US Corporate Militarists want the same thing.


See?
You can serve 2 masters.

I can understand folks with "mixed feelings" about Snowden, who at least acknowledge...

...How frikkin' indispensable the disclosures are to a so-called "free-society".

Nobody has to LIKE Snowden.

But what he DID, he did for The People (against scary, vengeful elites, with the full-force of corporate media on their side).

I guess some folks just can't think of the world in such complex terms,
and need everything to be black or white.
Then, they know for sure.



US role in Ukraine crisis is not an innocent one

Says William Pfaff, who will likely become
worse-than-Hitler in about another 5-minutes.



Nobody says Putin is a teddy-bear, or that Russia isn't still depressingly primitive in the area
of Gay rights (as is much of the world, sadly, which includes some red state areas in the US).
Basically, Russia is an Oligarchy, like we are in danger of becoming, and rather quickly, too.

But on the issue of Ukraine, America & Europe are not squeaky-clean, by a long-shot.


Pfaff:

He has written about this before, but I'm sure all neocons will insist he is lying or delirious.

To those willing and able to see nuance, and irony, this is not all black & white ---- But it is
for neocons and those who desire war.

How about polls on ISSUES?

Examples:
Do you prefer:
Public Schools or Privatized Charter Schools run for-profit on Public Fund$?
Hillary prefers Privatized Charter Schools.


Do you favor TPP, secretly negotiated and fast-tracked, as currently proposed??
Hillary does.

Do you think Wall St bankers who break the law are untouchable by US Justice,
and "too rich too jail", and do you want a president with a clear "pro-Wall St" bias?
Hillary does, and she's got that bias.

Do you support unconditional backing of Israel and adherence to AIPAC,
no matter how extreme and aggressive their policies may be?
Hillary does.

Do you display a definite hawkish, NEOCON-tilt in your foreign-policy orientation?
Hillary does.

Do you support NSA meta-data spying on ALL Americans?
Hillary does.

Do you support hard-line continuation of America's Drug War?
Hillary does.

Did YOU see yourself as poor, less than ten years before having a net worth of 100-million dollars?
Hillary did.

We can do better.



People who KNOW they are dishonest and WRONG cannot abide criticism

Ayn Rand knew deep down inside she was a phony and a hack.

She was far too weak and flimsy a thinker to withstand any counter-argument or disagreement with her
pathetic excuse for a "philosophy".

Ayn Rand is a joke, taken seriously only by the ignorant, or willfully deceptive.

I am 63, and this is not the America I voted for or ever wanted

I was the beneficiary of a great birth year---circa 1950s----A better, fairer (with all its injustices) era of American history,
due to The new Deal and a more liberal era of the country (watch some of the western shows from the
late 50s/early 60s for some of the flavor of that popular liberalism--Fine liberal values on display in many episodes of
Have Gun Will Travel, Bonanza, Gunsmoke, etc etc). Very different from today---because it was a different era.


With all it's problems,
It was a far better America, with far more level playing field, than it is today.

Back in the late 70s and 80s I could see cynical change coming, and voted against Reagan both times, and I oppose all corporatists (both Dem and GOP) as should all freedom-loving (and opportunity-loving) Americans.

But in 2014, amazingly, the country is still
being re-made by THEM, not by people who feel as I do.

The New Deal is being totally rolled-back, as was forecast and seen by some folks way back in the 80s.

This economy has been partly made by the Clintons, and by Obama's bows to banks and corporations,
as well as by the GOP corporatists themselves. All those in power who made their deal with The Devil of American Big Business (and those who were susceptable to their dishonest sales pitches) were part of the cause of our present troubles.


Progressive political REFORM is the answer.

But America isn't listening.

Instead we are continuing to drive very fast in the opposite direction.


As pitiful as it may seem,
I sincerely, and with an aching heart,
apologize to you for all the members of my generation who voted for
the garbage-America we are getting now.

I am so sorry.




And for the perpe-traitors, I have only...
