More Collateral Damage Brought To You By The “War On Drugs”…

This AP article via Yahoo caught my attention for many reasons, but what ultimately led me me to respond was this infuriating quote –

“People light up a joint, and they have no idea the amount of environmental damage associated with it,” said Cicely Muldoon, deputy regional director of the Pacific West Region of the National Park Service.

Oh really, Cicely?  You know, that’s particularly hilarious coming from a representative of the very same government whose disastrous agricultural policies are directly responsible for the Dead Zone the size of New Jersey in the Gulf of Mexico.

It’s clearly not only fossil fuel companies and other massive corporations engaging in greenwashing these days, it also appears that the US government is now trying to sell its failed “War on Drugs” as a green issue.  The fact is that growing operations in our national parks are disastrous, but at the same time we should also consider the fact that they only exist due to equally disastrous government policy.

Christopher Columbus & His Crimes Against Humanity

Christopher Columbus:

The Christian Crusades had ended in 1291, the Black Death had been deliberately blamed on innocent Jews who said what their Christian torturers forced them to, that they poisoned water wells, causing the Black Death.  

Who Really Pals Around With Terrorists?

Five weeks before I was born, a handful of blocks away from my parents’ apartment on Conneticut Avenue in Northwest Washington D.C., terrorists detonated a car bomb.  The bomb killed Chilean national Orlando Letelier and his assistant, American Ronni Moffitt.  This act of terrorism was a part of Operation Condor, a campaign of political repression carried out jointly by the military and intelligence services of eight South American nations, which took place with support by the United States.  No one is certain of the total number of victims of the campaign, but all estimates confirm that thousands were killed.

G8/G7 What Did I miss An Illuminati Memo or Something?

Note in the “news”, the lamestream media, people are talking about the G7.  Now when I last checked the globalist assholes frequently were touting the G8 and even including the EU and calling it the G9.


So much for the stellar “accomplishments” of douchebags seeking undeveloped countries to point the financial houses of the western world at for “investments”.

Now did the decadence of the western world soo piss off Russia that they are now casually not mentioning Russia in “the lists” of “global” “superpowers”?  Is it a blatant “we really fucked up this time” admission of, well, we really fucked up this time.


As in NOT to include Russia.

Well when globalist assholes fight amongst themselves I take that as a good sign.  A sign of real opposition somewhere in the world to the truth of what is really happening.  Another opinion of life, life outside of the propaganda control matrix that is the English speaking corporate media.  I do so miss my Russian boss and our conversations about the American control matrix.  He is so right, even years ago to have said,”Now I have lived in two “socialist” countries.  Yes the word “socialist” in this context needs an entire book to fully explain in it’s total meaning.  

John Lewis On McCain/Palin Rallies, Race and Violence

From Politico:

As one who was a victim of violence and hate during the height of the Civil Rights Movement, I am deeply disturbed by the negative tone of the McCain-Palin campaign.  What I am seeing reminds me too much of another destructive period in American history.  Sen. McCain and Gov. Palin are sowing the seeds of hatred and division, and there is no need for this hostility in our political discourse.

During another period, in the not too distant past, there was a governor of the state of Alabama named George Wallace who also became a presidential candidate.  George Wallace never threw a bomb.  He never fired a gun, but he created the climate and the conditions that encouraged vicious attacks against innocent Americans who were simply trying to exercise their constitutional rights.  Because of this atmosphere of hate, four little girls were killed on Sunday morning when a church was bombed in Birmingham, Alabama.

As public figures with the power to influence and persuade, Sen. McCain and Gov. Palin are playing with fire, and if they are not careful, that fire will consume us all.  They are playing a very dangerous game that disregards the value of the political process and cheapens our entire democracy.  We can do better.  The American people deserve better.

Young People and Voting

Every now and then I get a glimpse of how all of this new technology is changing politics and the innovative ways that young people are getting engaged in the process. Here’s an example of a powerful youtube message crafted by and for the next generation of leaders.

From the youtube description:

This video is a call to the American millennial generation, and the rest of the country, to speak now with our vote, so that our silence will not echo for generations to come. The “Citizen’s Cry” makers are targeting the millennial generation specifically because less than 50% of them have ever voted in a presidential election. The youth vote of America is of unprecedented importance today; this is a vital audience that needs to be reached. Our responsibility to vote is our greatest opportunity for change. It is crucial for all generations, creeds and colors to take action.
