Beck and his mob want an America of the pre civil rights movement.

I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
~Martin Luther King, Jr.

I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia, the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit together at the table of brotherhood.
~Martin Luther King, Jr.


Martin Luther King's rally on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial is now being parodied by the shill Glenn Beck. Martin Luther King's legacy has grown and become a symbol to millions of Americans and Beck's action is a mockery of the civil right struggle of black Americans. As someone who lived through those times there is a clear difference between Glenn Beck and MLK. MLK is a national hero and a giant who helped change the course of a nation as opposed to Beck who is a fraud, and would if he could minimize the accomplishments of the civil right movement of the sixties. But he cannot succeed, because anyone with any real intelligence can see him for what he is, an opportunist, fraud and small man of little character. He cannot diminish the accomplishment of great men no matter how he tries. He will have an attendance at his rally but not for the right reasons. They will not be there to fight for equal rights, for social justice or for common decency, no they will be there to fight for their twisted vision of their America and America that MLK opposed, an America that he fought against. They want an America that was everything MLK wanted to change. Beck and his mob want an America of the pre civil rights movement. They better get over it because it isn't ever going to happen. If they want to see rallies and a true American revolution try turning back the gains of the sixties, try turning back the gains of the civil rights movement, try turning back the gains made by all minority groups in America, just TRY, because if they did they would see such a ground swell of indignation that they would run for cover and hide in the dark.

he is closer to the Klu Klux Klan in his subtle but palatable racism

All things that move between the quiet poles Shall be at my command: emperors and kings Are but obeyed in their several provinces, Nor can they raise the wind, or rend the clouds; But his dominion that exceeds in this Stretcheth as far as doth the mind of man; A sound magician is a demi-god.

-Marlowe, Christopher
c.1592 Doctor Faustus (published1604), act1, sc.1.



Glenn Beck has planned a rally for August 28th on the Anniversary of the "I have a Dream" speech and rally by Martin Luther King at the same location, The Lincoln Memorial, in Washington D.C. The rally is a Take Back America and honor the heroes, in truth it is for Glenn Beck own twisted ego. Glenn beck is a demigod for the Tea Party and extreme Right. The insensitivity and contempt Beck has for black Americans and other minorities is magnified by the his hubris. This buffoon sees himself as the paragon of American values but in truth he is closer to the Klu Klux Klan in his subtle but palatable racism. Sarah Palin will be one of the speakers and she will talk about her brand America; an intolerant, homophobic, non inclusionary, born again and racist America
This is a white man rally, all red necks welcome. If you hate Obama, doesn't matter why, you are welcome, if you hate our government you are welcome, if you hate gays or oppose equal rights for gays you are welcome, if you want to round up all 12 million illegal aliens and throw them out of the country you are welcome, if you believe in the rapture you are welcome, if you hate muslims you are welcome, if you don't believe a black man should be president you are welcome, if you believe Sharron Angle and Michelle Bachmann are brilliant you are welcome, if you believe that all liberal and progressive Democrats in congress are evil and enemies of America and should be shot you are VERY welcome.
Where did I leave my jack I gotta get there, yea really. Not surprisingly civil rights groups are opposed to Beck's rally, "Civil rights groups have expressed outrage. Marc Morial, president of the National Urban League, told CBS News it was "insulting" to King's legacy." Beck's rally is if anything in poor taste but then again Beck has never been accused of having good taste. He panders to the haters, the poorly educated and those who lack human compassion for mankind. The man is a disgrace. His rally is a affront to all decent Americans.

Republican Lies

"All truths are easy to understand once they are discovered; the point is to discover them."

~Galileo Galilei


This was too good not to reprint. Sometimes the truth will trump a lie. That is what this is about. The Republicans and their shills FOX have been lying about the expiration of the Bush tax cuts. Screaming that it will tax the middle class but the truth is it will hit to top 2% of wealthy Americans. Sorry Jerry. Jerry is a friend who feels that it is directly effecting him and maybe it does but, hey get over it. Read on and learn the truth.

"Republican Lies On The Bush Tax Cuts

posted by HOWARD GLECKMAN

The story goes that when Lyndon Johnson was losing his first congressional election he put out the word that his opponent was having sex with barnyard animals. An aide innocently warned Johnson that this wasn’t true. “Make the SOB deny it,” LBJ was said to have replied.

If you go to the Website of House Ways & Means Republicans, you will see this:

countdown-tax-hikes.jpg

Meanwhile, Fox Business is running a graphic that includes another one of these ominous digital clocks, this time counting down to what it calls “the largest tax hike ever.”

largest-tax-hike.jpg

All this drama is about the coming expiration of the Bush tax cuts, of course. But what else do these two allegations have in common? They are both utterly untrue.

To start, not a single important Democrat favors letting all the Bush tax cuts expire at the end of the year, as the Ways & Means Republicans allege. Ever since his campaign for president, Barack Obama has vowed not to raise taxes for anyone making $200,000 or less—a pledge I wish he had never made, but one he has nonetheless kept. His 2011 budget explicitly calls for extending nearly all of those tax cuts (except for the highest-earning 3 percent of taxpayers). Finance Committee chairman Max Baucus (D-MT), Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid (D-NV), House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Ways & Means Committee chairman Sandy Levin (D-MI) all favor continuing the tax cuts, at least for the middle class. Relative to current law, this would cut taxes by $3 trillion over 10 years. So to say that “on Jan. 1, 2011, Democrats will drop a $3.8 trillion tax increase on American small businesses and families” is–not to put too fine a point on it–a lie." Reprint from Business in The Beltway

Shit they don't want you to think about.

Roland Haas CIA assassin found dead of a gun shot wound

“True heroism is remarkably sober, very undramatic. It is not the urge to surpass all others at whatever cost, but the urge to serve others at whatever cost.
~Arthur Ashe


Death of an American hero. Roland Haas, CIA assassin, found dead of a gun shot wound. Roland Haas worked for the CIA as a contract assassin for over thirty years and chronicled some of his life in his book Enter The Past Tense: My Secret Life as a CIA Assassin. While the government makes no comment or admits any knowledge of Haas' past relationship the book reveals an unknown world of assassinations.
"A fatal shooting that took place August 21st, Saturday night on Forest Circle, just off Shenandoah Boulevard near Highway 34 East, has been ruled accidental, say Coweta County authorities. The victim, Roland W. Haas, 58, suffered a single gunshot to his right leg, which ruptured his femoral artery, according to Major James Yarbrough of the Coweta County Sheriff's Office." Times-Herald.com
We may never know the truth about Roland Hass' death and we know that the government won't tell. Considering what he did and what he knew and has yet to tell, I imagine that there is sigh of relief among certain government types. Anyone who thinks that the United States does not assassinate it's enemies is naive. We do it with drones, with hit squads, with proxy agents and with CIA assassins like Haas. The United States of America has a lot of enemies who would stop at nothing to destroy America and "would dance with glee" at the death of thousands of Americans. Men like Haas are inevitable and necessary. Unfortunately for some, sometimes the time comes when they no longer serve any use. It may be that Haas had reached that point. As a result of his book he may have become expendable. Considering his life and exposure his death is a true mystery. We give medals to soldiers in uniform but not to the clandestine fighters like Haas. He is also an American hero and deserves the honor we reserve for all of our heros.

Less we forget. We have enemies.

Great article.

Roland Haas was a gentle, caring, hard-working, extremely intelligent human being. He was my boss 25 years ago in Germany, and he and his wife Marilyn became close friends to me and my family. He was loved and will be sorely missed.

Roland Haas was a remarkable man. A true HERO. A selfless patriot. Always.

I only met Roland Haas a few times at World Gym in Peachtree City. He was obviously a very interesting character. I only recently read his book and wanted to somehow get to know he and Marilyn better. What a shock to read of his death. I really hope that Coweta County investigates this with all diligence. Many clues have to be there if they look at them as clearing the name of one of their own. Please be persistent in letting the TRUTH come out. I for one believe Roland was everything he claimed to be and more. Otherwise, take it from a previous veteran, he would not have help the position he held at Ft. McPherson............

vulgarity is war and injustice

"History is not, of course, a cookbook offering pretested recipes. It teaches by analogy, not by maxims."
~Henry Kissinger


I have been criticized by some for my use of certain expletives, expletives one does not use in good company. It has been said to me that I can express myself better without them and that it is vulgar. Maybe they are right but to me vulgarity is war and injustice, that is real vulgarity not my choice of language. The illegal war in Iraq begun by the Bush administration to look for weapons of mass destruction and to free the people of Iraq from the iron grip of Saddam and give them freedom is a vulgarity. Well we saw what that got us. We took our eye off the ball so to speak and now have a wider, more deadlier war in Afghanistan.
Did we win in Iraq? There is no winning. We invaded, destroyed the Iraq army, but created a quagmire that is still threatening to blow up into a civil war. Now that we are done there it is anybody's bet on the future of Iraq.
Afghanistan is another mess resulting from the failed policies of the Bush administration. When does it end and how will it end. Afghanistan has now become a war we should have finished with a long time ago. We seem not to have learned the lessons of Viet Nam or for that matter the lessons of history. When we leave Afghanistan it won't be soon enough for some and it will be too early for others. No one will be completely happy but for the families of our military who serve in harms way it will be okay. They will get their loved ones back. America warriors will come home. And the next time they have to go in harms way in defense of the nation lets pray it be for a just cause under enlightened leadership.

Wow, I feel good again

"The American right wing is achieving its long-term goal of becoming the nation's thought police. They are realizing this goal through the timeless practices of extremists (be they on the right or the left, religious or secular), which are intimidation, slander and harassment. In the past several months, conservative outbursts have ruined the careers of journalists, most of whom were of the political center, but who were indiscreet enough to say something that ran counter to the right's version of political correctness."
~By Lawrence Davidson, Reader Supported News


I haven't written my blog very often for a few weeks. More to the fact for more than a month I have written it sporadically. Part of the reason is that is was tired of the news and the constant flow of shit you hear. The injustice, the stupidity and the frivolous coverage of what should be on the back page of a newspaper, being prime time. I find more and more I have to look at the BBC website to get real world news.
But another reason that I was not writing was I am spending a lot more time training and have taken up Iaido practice with a passion. Iaido is the practice of the Japanese katana Samurai sword. That and my Karate, Aikido, wights and cardio in the gym was not leaving me a lot of free time to devote to writing. I have finally got a handle on it, at least I think so. I expect to be able to write more regularly. Not that many people read this blog or that it makes a difference. But I guess it makes a difference to me, even if I am that lone voice in the wilderness raging against the night.
Sometimes I think the issues are just overwhelming and the assholes out there are getting away with murder and I mean murder. They preach their version of reality and people believe it. Well meaning people believe the special interest and act against their own self interest. Weather it is global climate change, health care, net neutrality, illegal aliens, foreclosures, gay rights, the right of a woman to choose, the war, tax cuts for the rich, corporate welfare and the list goes on. The Right is on the side of the corporation which is opposed to the rights of the people. The Liberals and Progressives fight for these issues while the people are lied too by the Right and fed sound bites and like mushrooms kept in the dark. All they hear is that the Left wants to take away their guns, raise their taxes and allow gays to marry. It become tiresome, and I think even a caped crusader would get exhausted fighting against the tide of shit pushed by the Right.
Hey, but I'm back and will push back and call it like it is. It is time that those fucking assholes on the Right get called on it and shown to be the scum bags that they are. FOX, Rush, Hannity, Beck et al., Fuck You! Wow, I feel good again. Got to get stuff off my chest, not good to hold shit in.
