One, in every one hundred and ten kids, is born with Autism, now. Those families bankrupt themselves, struggling to get their kids a good education, agonizing over the cruel expectation that they be institutionalized. Most all parents of Autistic kids get divorced. The doctors and media are clearly, in cahoots with the big-pharma vaccine-makers, insisting the vaccines, have nothing to do with it. This insanely venal and fully nefarious, rightwing tool in Florida, Gov. Rick Scott, has immediately cut all funding to people with Downs Syndrome, Autism, etc., and probably wants to exterminate them all in the secret FEMA camps. He looks like a deranged clown, but he is a dangerous predator. This guy is evil like Dick Cheney, evil like Scrooge, like Mister Burns, like Old Scratch. It's bad enough, that unscrupulous, for-profit, insurance companies, and big corporations, operate all the regulatory agencies. Now, these nazi governors are slashing all social-services, with the help of the deceptive and complicit, Republic-rats, like Obama. Pumping all that Mercury and metal into tiny bodies is supposed to be good for them. It's hard not to hate an all-out, insistent hate-monger, like Ann Coulter, who goes on TV, and tells people that radiation is good for them. The phony Dem in the White House bought the neo-cons time, to expand their world-domination agenda, and to build more jails, and death-camps, like Gitmo. Deep down, I knew during Obama's campaign, that something was fishy, about this no-name Senator rising so quickly, out of nowhere, 'all his campaign speeches as carefully contrived, focus-grouped, choreographed, and saturation-marketed as a Garth Brooks performance. On the same night Obama gave his latest teleprompted, pro-war speech about bombing another brown-skinned nation for oil, to an unbelievably gullible population, Bush Senior, was seated amidst the other living former presidents, while Garth Brooks sang Bill Withers "Lean On Me", with a gospel choir, and they all did some public relations back-slappin' about the Bush and Clinton charities, and Bill Clinton talked about how sweet Bush Senior is. What a guy. He still can't recall what he was doing the day Kennedy was killed. They've been doing this media tour, revising history, claiming thry all did a good job supplying New Orleans, and Haiti with humanitarian-aid, after the disasters. Senior stayed seated, while all the others would rise in standing ovations. The capo dei capi ...on the throne.
The great investigative journalist, Jeremy Scahill, says the newest bullshit war, on Libya, was just the usual shootin' fish in a barrel--the "cruise missile liberals" of the Obama administration, needed a fifth war to satiate their military industrial complex bosses, and distract the masses from the collapsed economy-all the chain stores that are going out of business, B. Dalton, Borders, Quiznos, Movie Gallery, Blockbuster, etc. etc.; the ongoing cover-up of B.P./Halliburton's eco-crimes in the Gulf; and all these the big corporations-like Koch Industries, Blackwater, and G.E., who can hire lobbyists to pen all the model-legislation, but pay no taxes, etc. He calls Quadaffi "low hanging fruit". Nader, Napolitano, Kucinich, Ventura, Ellsberg, Chomsky, Sheehan, Ann Wright, and many others, are all agreeing that Obama is seamlessly continuing Bush/Cheney war crimes. PFC Bradley Manning is still being treated like a Muslim, by his State Department captors, under Obama. TV programmed Americans would rather discuss Snooki, the Situation, Gary Busey, and Meatloaf, on "The Apprentice". No wonder Donald Trump thinks he's got as good a shot, as anybody, in the next election-cycle...especially since Obama shattered all that hope for change. Dr. Cornel West calls Obama, "A puppet of the oligarchs". Kucinich says, "impeachable". Nader straight-up says, "continuing war crimes". What does Jello Biafra say? I dunno, he's been blacklisted by the big-media, and one of his band mates says he "doesn't do e-mail", but he released an album called, "The Audacity Of Hype", so one suspects he saw through the Brand Obama marketing-hoax before some of the rest of us. Obama asserts he has the authority to imprison someone for life, even if a jury finds them innocent of any crime. China does not have the audacity to assert anything quite that fascist.
Many folks don't even recognize how identical Obama is to Bush. It's all a big greasy wheel of extortion, covert operations, and public relations. If the Koch brothers bus two hundred employees somewhere to "protest" health care, there is 'round-the-clock media coverage, first, by FOX, but all the rest, promptly follow. It's called Astro-Turfing. These fascists can pay big, million dollar, public relations firms, to maximize publicity on all the corporate networks. If two thousand, real grass-roots, working people, show up to protest the Koch manufactured tea party conspiracy to undermine collective bargaining, not one big media outlet covers it. When Nader and Ellsberg attend massive anti-war rallies, not one big media outlet mentions it. When Koch toadie, Scott Walker, appoints the drunken, uneducated son of one of his biggest, tax dodging, rightwing-donors to head a regulatory agency in Wisconsin, the big media ignores it. The "Madison Movement" is tirelessly organizing, door to door, to recall, and expell, these criminal Koch co-conspirators in Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio, Florida, and coming soon to your state, but the bad guys still own and operate the big-media and the actual voting apparatus, and election fixing is no problem with the Diebold (changed their brand name to Premiere) voting machines, used to throw the second Bush (s)election, so keep your electric eye on Bradblog, that's Bradbog dot com, to stay up to date about rightwing vote tampering. We have to quit voting for either wing of the dominant war party, and all do our part, to expose the crooks, in the shadows, running the government. Bradley Manning is STILL being isolated and humiliated, under Obama/Gates/Clinton. These are insincere, inhumane, corporatist, war hawks, who continue to ignore, eviscerate, and undermine the Geneva Conventions, and the Constitution. People worry about voting for "American Idol" distraction-puppets. The whole war on terror is nothing but theater. The latest rich, fascist, NY mayor's outlawed "smoking outdoors". Nucleur radiation, chem trails, and unchecked pollution from deregulated industries is cool, but not smoking. Outdoors. We got thirty million Americans working minimum wage jobs, and one of these Koch industries funded loonies-Jamie Radtke, possible GOP Senate candidate from Virginia, is trying to abolish minimum wage, wants to create something called, "a training wage". Once they kill the unions and criminalize dissent, why not? All the ex-punks I know, who got diplomas, would be cool with that. That lambskin debt is proof of their moral superiority, to the working poor, doncha know? The middle-class is apathetic, in-debt, imperiled, and self-obsessed. The media-class is embedded, permanently "in the pocket" of the intelligence agencies and military industrial complex. The White House is owned by Wall St. lobbyists and the global elite. Congress is owned by lobbyists and the Global elite. All the rightwing cares about is more war, and tax cuts for the top one percent, and slashing of all government aid to the poor, education, and infrastructure. Halliburton's building more secret jails. JSOC, the black op's, and private mercenaries are expanding into more nations. No one talks about the brutal occupation of Gaza. Obama is bombing Libya, Gates promises to stay in Iraq forever, Hillary wants to attack Iran. They're using laser "heat guns" in Afghanistan. The cops indiscriminately taser men, women, and children, each and everyday, IN AMERICA, and who's your lobbyist? Fascist pigs in San Francisco, the "entertainment commission", are trying to require night clubs to keep a photographic register of every patron who ever passes through the door, to record a copy of their photo I.D.! I can't make this shit up. TSA pervs grope children for the amusement of their CIA bosses. These are dark, darker, darkening times.
Sinead O'Connor, possibly the most talented artist of her generation is widely despised in corporate-conditioned America, because she speaks her mind, she tells the truth about child abuse, police brutality, and the Vatican's complicity with the church sanctioned molestation of Catholic youth. The last voice the U.S. had that was maybe half as courageous, was probably Tupac Shakur, the Godson of Nikki Giovanni, whose assassination was mysteriously never solved by the LAPD. Where did all our punk rockers go? There's the country singer, Steve Earle. There's the impossibly marginalized, JELLO BIAFRA-the government's favorite whipping boy of the eighties. Who else, among us, is even speaking out? We got a fraud Prez quietly presiding over the biggest redistribution of wealth, ever; X-ray vans nuking us in our very streets and own homes; Round the clock monitoring of all our electronic communications, with no warrants....TSA goons with their dangerous radiation and Obama approved molestations; ZERO debate about ending these trillion dollar multiple wars of occupation for hegemony and, yes, it's still all about oil, and to further enslave nations in austerity debt, after bankrupting them, by the global elite, like they already have in both Ireland, and Greece. We got the hard-right Supreme Court, and billionaires like the Kochs, paying crooks to outlaw unions, outlaw dissent. The consolidated media continues to legitimize/justify/glamorize police state abuse, and torture. Some still believe this nation is a democracy. It's actually a nation of hopelessly miseducated, cable propaganda brainwashed, prescription pilled-out, video game playing, Target shopping, inmates. Visit war is a crime dot org. Fire John Yoo Dot Org. Code Pink.
OH YEAH---and if you ever get a chance to purchase a used copy of Sinead's VHS home concert-video from the eighties, prepare to be awed, by her dancing, her voice, her beauty, her soul. She was prettier than Natalie Portman, and sang like an angel, and had the astonishing swashbuckler, ANTMUSIC maestro, Marco Pirroni on lead guitar! I "youtube" Sinead sometimes, and empathize with her pain and confusion. The establishment has convinced her she has a chemical imbalance and must be subdued with pills. I think she's just a true believer, who values human rights, and opposes might-makes-right violence, authoriatarian perversion, and merciless tyranny. Remember when dumbfuck cows booed her off stage, for being a lightnin' rod, at a Bob Dylan tribute? Kristofferson wrote a lovely tribute to her called, "Sister Sinead". Sinead scares Americans, because she has soul and guts. Speaks the truth. I love the Irish! 'Been listening to her reggae gospel album recorded by Sly and Robbie at Tuff Gong Studios in Kingston, Jamiaca. You should, too.
