Blood Money

Which one is the biggest destroyer of health? “Everyone knows” it’s smoking. Beware of what everyone knows; which depends on what everyone is told by media blitzes. Does the media ever lie in response to pressure from advertisers, government agendas and moral panics? Does a bear poop in the woods? In the 1950s, smoking was … Continue reading

One Day as a Lion

‘It is better to live one day as a lion than 100 years as a sheep.’ said Benito Mussolini, and all the fascists cheered. Hell yes. King of the Beasts versus a mild-mannered follower. Predator vs. prey. I’m sure Mussolini, like all fascists, meant a male lion, too. Masculine dominance, Romans (or Germans or Americans) First. And … Continue reading

The Deadliest Threat to a Nation

Those in power like to divert our attention away from their corruption to an outside enemy. You can see why. If we have our panties in a bunch over ‘outside agitators’ we close ranks and support those in power. News: China is massing troops on the Mexican border! Us: Save us, President Skanky! Skanky: Fear … Continue reading

So What is Democracy?

We love the word “democracy,” which literally means rule by the demos, the common people of a city-state. That was the original meaning, but meanings change gradually and now it means a government in which the views of the common people are considered in the decision-making process. Where does that take place? It took place … Continue reading

Who Killed JFK?

Who Killed JFK? The scab that has grown over the JFK assassination is still oozing. The major news media still insists it was the lone gunman, Lee Harvey Oswald. I hope you know this is a bald-faced lie. The Warren Commission was a whitewash. The 1976 House Select Committee on Assassinations concluded that JFK’s death … Continue reading

No, Greed Ain’t Good

A famous passage describing Goldman Sachs as vampire squids plunging their blood funnel wherever they smell money is brilliant. But it’s bigger than Goldman Sachs, though that is their corporate culture and qualification for promotion. This passage actually describes any amoral sociopath’s lust for loot. Greed is one of the primary motives for murder. Take … Continue reading

UK: We Want Our Empire Back!

I like to watch British shows and its interesting how CLASS is still such a big deal. If it’s a crime show, they report on the class of the criminal and are “Oh, so shocked” if an upper class person does something nasty. They haven’t gotten over the idea that blueblood=goodness, as if gentry weren’t … Continue reading

Our Prime Directive

Look, let’s get down to where the rubber meets the road. Like all living creatures on our little blue planet, human beings want, above all, to stay alive. We insist on it. We try to eat right, exercise, button our seat belts, go to the doctor and avoid creepy strangers. Since humans are social beings, … Continue reading

Ideas that propel history

History is Propaganda with footnotes.-Je’ I’ve been watching the History of Western Civilization. Often such documentaries make me cuss mentally because they are so full of propaganda, but this series is not too bad. The speaker has a dry sense of humor and he said burning people at the stake for ideas is evil, but then … Continue reading

Kim Davis: State vs. Conscience

A woman in Kentucky, a government employee, refused to issue a marriage license to a gay couple, citing her religious belief as the reason. This has caused quite a storm, with people lamenting the sorry state of America, which some say is turning into a theocracy. The connection between state power and religion is long … Continue reading
