Now, The Eve of Destruction

“Don’t you understand what I’m tryin’ to say
Can’t you feel the fears I’m feelin’ today?
If the button is pushed, there’s no runnin’ away
There’ll be no one to save with the world in a grave
Take a look around you boy, it’s bound to scare you boy

“And you tell me
Over and over and over again my friend
Ah, you don’t believe
We’re on the eve of destruction”

What This Country Needs: Truth in Political Advertising Laws

Going forward from the most disgusting election campaigns in the lifetime of most living Americans, and quite possibly ever since the establishment of our nation, there are many possible fixes that could get us back on track as the world leader in human rights, democratic principles and protection of the downtrodden, needy and subservient peoples of less developed nations. But most of all, those fixes need to be implemented here, in the US, or our own future could be a bleak as that disgusting confidence man of the ages d trump says the country is now. While a total overhaul of campaign finance laws is vitally needed, taking ALL private money out of elections with all elections publicly financed with candidates put on equal footing regardless of wealth or fundraising prowess, and while some method of shortening election campaigns to a reasonable time period such as occurs

in countries like the United Kingdom should also be an election reform goal, perhaps the most important reform is a consummate, pervasive, federal and state reform effort to require total, absolute TRUTH in ALL campaign advertising.

If they wanted to do it, states could implement it and if they wanted to do it, Congress could do it on a federal level. It would take four elements, and each would have to be absolutely required by law, with significant, overpowering sanctions for breeches. Continue reading

The KKK Then, and Especially trump’s KKK NOW

My father’s family emigrated from Eastern Europe in the very early 1900s, locating in the Boston, MA area. His parents, aunts, uncles and cousins all lived in Boston and a few surrounding communities into the 1930s. My father was among the first to leave, in 1932, traveling by himself across country at the age of 16, eventually relocating to Los Angeles. Over the next few years most of his family members made a similar journey, including his parents and sister.

trumpCrusader endorsement for presidentBut a few years earlier, one small group of his family made a different move, from Boston to a small town in Missouri. They had planned to start a new life there, but their dreams were soon crushed, their faith in humanity along with it, and the health and well-being of some of them also permanently destroyed. In that small Missouri town, there was one group that was the government, that was the law, and that controlled who prospered and who feared for their life every waking moment. That group was the Ku Klux Klan. And they did not want Jews in their community.

Instead of living in that small Missouri town for generations, they stayed only a few painful weeks. The KKK did not just intimidate, the KKK did not just use epithets, the KKK did not just use symbols of hatred, the KKK physically attacked their new Jewish neighbors, causing painful and permanent injuries, Continue reading

Those gop Govs are Doing Real Well

It never ceases to amaze me how millions of voters can consistently vote against their own best interests when it comes to electing the people who pass the laws they must live with in their daily lives, and who like and support politicians while despising the policies they pass into law. Of the 50 states, currently 31 have republican governors. and almost without exception, they are despised and vilified by a majority of their constituents, but somehow they get re-elected, and if not, another younger, richer and most extreme republican takes their place.

A recent study in the news this week has listed the most hated and disapproved governors in the US, and to no surprise, of the 15 most disliked governors, 12 are republicans.

Among that top 15, you have mindless nincompoops like Oklahoma’s Mary Fallin who twiddles her Koch-Brothers thumbs while her state has seen pervasive and restricted fracking increase earthquakes in the state from, well, NEVER, to oh, HUNDREDS of 3.0 and above per year. You have philanders like Alabama’s Robert Bentley whose affair with a

state-paid “advisor” is under investigation for numerous ethical and financial violation. You have Rick Snyder of Michigan who Continue reading

How Many Deplorables Does It Take….

Why did the Deplorables cross the road? trump told them it would make them rich and keep the Muslims out of Merika.

How many Deplorables have graduated from trump University? None – trump University did not accept Confederate money for the tuition.

How many Deplorables does it take to screw in a light bulb? Doesn’t matter – none of them have electricity.

How many Deplorables received mortgages from trump Mortgage Company? None – trump Mortgage only made loans on real estate and did not loan money on house trailers.

How many Deplorables eat trump steaks or drink trump Vodka? None – both are priced too high to buy with food stamps.

How many Deplorables wear hats? None, you cannot put a hat on over your hood.

How many Deplorables actually work for trump? That’s a trick question as trump only employees foreign workers who cannot vote in the USA. Continue reading

Progressives: Don’t Drink the Jill Stein KoolAid

There is a strong movement to co-opt Bernie Sanders supporters and other Progressives to the jill stein Green Party camp. DO NOT BE FOOLED – many of her values and her beliefs are anathema to true Progressive beliefs and to Bernie supporters.

A lot can been seen about stein by her pick for vice president, Ajamu Baraka, and what he has said about Bernie, who Baraka has called a Racist, an Imperialist, and a supporter of Saudi Arabian Terrorism:

“For Bernie and his supporters, the mischief that the Saudi government and private individuals have been engaged in across the region financing groups like ISIS wasn’t dirty enough

“This is the world that a President Sanders promises—continued war crimes from the sky with drone strikes and Saudi led terror in support of the Western imperial project…”

Stein has produced an onslaught of vile criticism against Hillary Clinton, rivaling that of trump, Continue reading

How trump Has Divided America

There is now no question that American has been divided into two categories of people, on one hand those who are clear thinking, who look beyond the rhetoric and search out the truth, and on the other hand those who believe the liturgy of lies continually spewed forth by the biggest con man in modern world history, whose descent into narcissism, likely paranoia and insanity, and who now apparently also has become delusional, has made a mockery of the 2016 presidential election process.

It was back at the beginning of the primary process when former candidate carly fiorina described a disgusting but non-existent video she alleged condemned Planned Parenthood. It did damage, remember the mass shooting at a Planned Parenthood office not too long thereafter, but the truth then became part of her rapid decline and exposure as yet another pretender who could only find success through deceit. Perhaps it was this

incident that led trump to the belief that his campaign of outrageous lies could be stimulated to greater heights by describing other non-existent videos, which he has now done on at least two occasions - first the phony description of “thousands of Muslims in New Jersey” cheering the destruction of the World Trade Center, and now the airplane loaded with cash transporting $400 M to Iran.

Or does he actually believe these things? Is the trump ALSO delusional? Continue reading

trump’s Fast Descent into Insanity

Insanity – “Mental illness of such a severe nature that a person cannot distinguish fantasy from reality, cannot conduct her/his affairs due to psychosis, or is subject to uncontrollable impulsive behavior.” (

Or, “1. A deranged state of the mind usually occurring as a specific disorder (as schizophrenia);
2. Such unsoundness of mind or lack of understanding as prevents one from having the mental capacity required by law to enter into a particular relationship, status, or transaction or as removes one from criminal or civil responsibility;
3a Extreme folly or unreasonableness;
3b Something utterly foolish or unreasonable” from

And of course: Paranoia – “a mental condition characterized by delusions of persecution, unwarranted jealousy, or exaggerated self-importance, typically elaborated into an organized system. It may be an aspect of chronic personality disorder, of drug abuse, or of a serious condition such as schizophrenia in which the person loses touch with reality.”

Or, 1. A psychosis characterized by systematized delusions of persecution or grandeur usually without hallucinations;
2. A tendency on the part of an individual or group toward excessive or irrational suspiciousness and distrustfulness of others, also from

Or, finally, “Paranoia is an unfounded or exaggerated distrust of others, sometimes reaching delusional proportions. Paranoid individuals constantly suspect the motives of those around them, and believe that certain individuals, or people in general, are ‘out to get them.’” from

It seems like almost daily some person of note chimes in with a public statement that “donald trump is insane” or that “donald trump is insane to say ….. [add in whatever latest rant or idea he has espoused]”. The press has reported such pronouncements Continue reading

Scapegoats and Wristbands in the GOP’s America

An unmistakable similarity of donald trumps’ presidential campaign and of the campaign that brought adolph hitler to power and that then fueled the rise of nazism through Europe was the reliance on scapegoats, the pervasive assumption, hammered home at every available opportunity, that “we are great, but for” those within who seek to destroy us, those among us who have their own selfish self-interests who when allowed to exist in our society, have for their personal benefit and for the betterment only of their own group

caused us, and will continue to cause us, great harm.

Once the appropriate scapegoat population had been named, the next step in both instances was to call for their elimination. hitler focused primarily on the Jews, be he was no less clear in his ostracizing of and calls for elimination of Gypsies, homosexuals, Jehovah's Witnesses, the
disabled, and other groups that detained the prosperity of Germany and the position of his “master race” as the leader of the world.

With trump, the path has been eerily similar, Continue reading
