Do Progressives Have A Future in 2011?

I do think the progressives do have some hope ONLY if we unite. United we stand, divided we fall. The last election is a clear example of fracturing we cannot afford to have. It wasn't all big money spent to stop someone of color in the White House. Many of the Dems and independents leaning left were like spoiled children who should now be impressed with what our president has done despite all the uphill battles with both the GOPee and his own party.

I'm very impressed with my president and while I disagree with him sometimes, I support him 100%. If progressives had stuck with him last month instead of staying home b!tching, Dems would not be lamenting losing their seats in Congress!

Despite all of this bickering and useless complaining about what was perceived as slow change, this president has accomplished more than any other president! And for ALL the people, and not just CERTAIN people, unlike his predecessor, whose oligarchy nearly destroyed this country.

Let's not forget Mr. Obama had to deal with catastrophic economic conditions where the banks just raped the financial system. Sure, that system has been broken for a long time, but change is a gradual process. Give the man a chance! Stop complaining about his not being progressive enough and start helping change become reality.

As Ghandi said, "Be the change you want to see in the world." Obama's campaign was Yes WE Can. I am hard pressed to find much of the WE, especially when looking at how many nutballs made it into office in November. Those same wack-a-doos will be running Congress! So, if things get unraveled in January, which they will, progressives have themselves to blame for not being a unified machine for change. Bernie Sanders, in his Bernibuster or Filibernie 8 and half hour rant did more for progressive change than the entire movement!

So, instead of just hope, we need to DO something. Do not let the narrow minded, racist fools that call themselves the Grand Old, take this proverbial car over the cliff!

Now, was that clear, or should I break out a crayon and draw you guys a picture? Oh, I'm sorry, the children ate those as the average age of the homeless is now NINE!

Open Letter to My Senator for the Lame Duck Session

Dear Senator Casey,

Please, sir, when you begin the lame duck session on Wednesday, do not allow the Bush tax cuts for the very rich to persist. We as a working people, the backbone of American society and the evaporating middle class, cannot afford 700 billion to fill the caviar bowls of Mitch McConnell and John Boehner.

It is of paramount importance that Congress create the conditions for job growth, extension of unemployment insurance benefits to the now needy segment of our society, and to bringing to justice the criminals running the Wall Street banks who got us in this Depression 2.0 in the first place.

Republicans have consistently asked Americans to fight wars that their favored contractors like Blackwater, Halliburton and others make money on, taking American lives and American working class money while doing it. This must stop.

Any sane person who checks the actual FACTS will conclude that the disparity between rich and poor is at its highest in history. The middle class is disappearing at an alarming rate, replaced by subsistence workers who once thought they could realize the American dream of owning their own home and being able to afford paying for it.

Instead of that, we have an average homeless age of 9 years old. That is unforgivable. While the rich keep getting richer and farming their so-called job creation to other countries, many of which hate America, the American worker is being held hostage.

President Obama has not been given enough time to repair the enormous damage done by the Bush oligarchy. It's supposed to be "Yes WE Can," not "Let HIM do it and in a very short time."

PLEASE help the working class and do not give in to the powerful. They only got that way because the perceived weak portion of our society let them.

I've been for the working person all my life and have never seen such depraved political and social upheaval on this scale. It needs to stop. We need to pursue the original concept of change. Not go back to the dark ages that we have now.

FIGHT FOR US. Without the working class, America will fall. United we stand, divided we fall. At present, we are divided. I think you know what happens next.

Your help is greatly appreciated.

Sincerely and with respect,

My answer to the Pee Farty ... er ... Tea Party Primary Wins

When will America finally wake up? The Grand Oiled Pustules are not, have never been and never will be for the working people of this nation. I've been a progressive for 38 years and have seen ZERO progress under their tutelage, although I kinda liked Ronald Reagan, who today would be considered a communist by the present conservative standard.

Now, they are so divisive and obviously can't stand the idea of a person of color in the presidency, so they will fight to keep the rich rich, the poor poor, and to evaporate the middle class. This policy is undertaken to solidify their goal of creating a nation of serfs under their idea of a state religion and to take the meager money we earn and gamble with it like they did during the Bush Oligarchy. Sure I am venting here and waxing a little satirical, but all you have to do is check the facts, something that journalists seem to have forgotten how to do.

If the GOPPERS take the Congress in November and the White House in 2012, it will be indeed apocalyptic. It'll make the world of Road Warrior real, only Mel Gibson will probably go back to Australia as it will be too rightist even for him.

And to the people of my hometown of Buffalo, New York -- WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU SMOKING? Electing a psycho porn purveyor to the GOP Governor's Primary? A racist pig like that, who doesn't even deny sending mass emails to supporters with bestiality porn and other unspeakable crap? Not to mention (but I will) that for somebody who hates government, he sure makes money off renting office space to them. At the very least, he's a SPAMMER. At the very best, he's a dangerous psycho pervert who should be in jail.

Feh, I guess I'm the only prick on this rock who isn't drunk out of their mind.

New Yorkers, if you elect this dolt as governor, you deserve what you get. The same sentiment for the other Pee Farty - if you elect them to office, don't come crying to me when you lose your social security, medicare, medicaid, VA bennies and anything else government does for ya, 'cause all that will be gone like all your jobs...which they sent to China I might add.

Peace and peas, lovies.

The REAL reason Terry Jones wants to burn holy books.

...and it's not to pay for a decent trim of his stupid mustache.

But it is about MONEY.


The Tea Party is uniquely silent about this, especially since forming a state religion, their narrow view of Christianity, which hardly includes Christ, but does include a lot of bigotry. is one of the main tenets of their agenda.

Yet the progressive base just keeps sitting on their dead asses, waiting for pundits to tell them that they are going to lose the November election.

Yes, America, we are now officially in Civil War 2.0.  Only it ain't civil.  It IS another CRUSADES, however, with an even more backward bunch of hypocrites running the show.

So, if you want to stop the hate, GET INVOLVED.  Spread some love, especially to your favorite public officials running against these Pee Farty assholes in November.

I'm just sayin'.

By the way, Terry Jones?

I hope your ass gets shipped over to Afghanafrickenstan soon, either by accident or by someone's sense of humor and a nice big wooden box on a Cargo Plane, you piece of shit.

If any soldiers get killed because of Terry Jones, I hope the parents send him a picture of the body...uncensored.

To all the bigots like Terry Jones - have a big cool glass of KISS MY ASS!

Are you guys pronouncing "Muslim", 'must lynch'?

Guess I had too much to drink over the holiday as I woke up this morning to the news about some "Christian" group burning Korans or Qurans or however you spell it on Sept. 11. Did somebody pass a bill saying we now have a state religion or did somebody just pass a lot of gas? C'mon, humans, get a GRIP. Jesus never burnt anybody's stuff. Before inciting hate and riots, ask yourself, "What would Jesus do?"

and that's not all...

Some a-hole emails me this picture of a store sign in TX saying a reportedly Muslim owned store was closing because of Imam Ali's sacrifice and then tells me the guy flew one of the planes into the WTC. Trouble is, the guy died over 1300 years ago. WRONG Ali. CHECK YOUR FACTS before inciting a riot, k?

Open Letter To The President on Alan Simpson

I still love ya, Mr. President, but you really should consider getting rid of Alan Simpson from your deficit squad. His comments about people on Social Security, who, by the way PAID into it all their lives, are a bit ironic, to say the least. As a progressive it seems counterproductive to have someone REGRESSIVE on your team, doesn't it?

Also, if you want to continue what you started, you need to energize your base much stronger than you have. You may get some inspiration from watching Cenk Uyger on MS-NBC. His "take no prisoners" approach to the party of No is a methodology you need to deploy. That is, if you still want to make this all work.

Thanks, however, for your dedication to what's right, even though you've tried to be everything to everyone. I think you see by now, that it's just not possible to please everyone. Follow your heart. That's the secret of life. Have a wonderful holiday and keep on keeping on.

Quantum Quips #6: Snooki's new 'do! Jacking Your Caddy and more!


All I can say about this member of MENSA is "at least she didn't have that big old storage shed on her head this time, but apparently the Progressive Insurance lady jacked it."


Is Robin Meade and that crazy weather guy Bob Van Dillen from Jersey in the morning make apocalyptic news seem fun.  Also, Robin is an awesome singer and most pleasing to the eye test.


The news this morning says that some of the rich, who claim to be too busy to find love, are paying up to a half million dollars to find somebody to love at these high end matchmaking services, mainly to avoid gold diggers. 

Mel Gibson's ears just perked up.  I'm thinking he probably met Oksana on myspace and we all know what happened next.


The legend in his own mind took out a full page ad to thank his fans in Akron, yet was dead silent about Cleveland.  I suppose he still might be a little miffed about Cleveland essentially burning him in effigy.


This from a "person" wanting to ban the Spanish language and yet, in her hypocritical stupor, uses the word "cojones."  Maybe Obeezy should just say, "funny you say that, as just the other day they were slapping you in the ass." 

Seriously, though, this arrogant little bitch should have a big cup of shut the fuck up.  Or maybe two.  And by the way, she gives new meaning to the word, "honky" as that shrill voice sounds like a witch scraping her uncut fingers against a blackboard making all the dogs within a light year start baying at the moon.  Or is it mooning at the bay? 

Anyhizzle for shizzle, I do wish she would just go back to pretending to be a housewife and a half term governor so our ears will stop bleeding.


I am no fan of religions, but I haven't forgotten that this country was founded on religious freedom and even freedom from religion.  Looks like most folks have forgotten their history as they rant about the proposed building of a mosque near Ground Zero in NYC.  I may not like the idea, but I would fight for the right for such a thing to be built and many Americans have given their lives for protecting that right.  Maybe it's time to find what we have in common instead of looking at our differences.  I'm just sayin'.


Which indicates it just might be wise to hide your sweet ride and just leave your 4 cylinder boxey POS out in the street.

And that's all the hubbub, bub.
This has been the Quantum Mechanic®, your favorite hypercube, messing around with quarks so you won't have to.

Quantum Quips #5: Justin Bieber's Writing A Memoir??!!

Quantum Quips #5 - Justin Bieber writing a memoir?!

Current mood:chairman of the bored stiff


I'm going to try to avoid politics this time as it just makes me all Mel Gibson-y and I really don't want to stress what's left of my little black heart.


A memoir? Who is he, Ghandi? He can sing, I grant you that, but hells bells, all this attention to celebrities as if they were Gods is about as useful to society as a 57 megaton hydrogen bomb. In other words, get a frickin' life. And Biebs, old sod, you're just a singer, not God's gift to mankind. If indeed you were the gift, I'd sure as hell hate to see the punishment.

Remember when folks like Nelson Mandella, Bishop Desmond Tutu, Mother Teresa actually were thought of as celebs? Now, we have singers, jailbirds, narcissistic athletes [cough] Lebron and the like. C'mon, America, find your heroes in folks who actually DO SOMETHING for society. Oy and vay.


Fixing the HDTV, I had the sci-fi channel on to test audio and there's a movie about a shark attacking a big passenger plane in mid-air.

Give. Me. A. Frickin'. Break.

Syfy™, or whatever you want to call yourselves this year, did you actually PAY somebody for that script? I could write better material drunk and after two consecutive lobotomies. Oy and vay, again.

BTW, the shark in the movie is called Megalodon.  Hmmm...sounds like a mafia boss who has had way too many pizzas.  Oy and double vay.


...and your winnings will be paid in Propofol.  "When it's proper to fall, try Propofol!" Honestly, anybody who would actually spend their hard-earned or even stolen cash on an online casino has got to be brain dead or at least lobotomized. The shills who put out such a thing should be strung up by their thumbs and then shot in front of a public firing squad. What's next, shares in the Brooklyn Bridge?  Cheesits H. Crispness™.


The press made this into as important a story as when Wikileaks leaked those supposedly classified documents. It seems that our society and our media are obsessed with 1. criminal stupidity or just 2. plain stupidity.

I care about her doing anything about as much as I care about how many blades of grass are on my neighbor's lawn after my imaginary dog pee'd on it. In other words, I don't give a shit to the level that two train cars of Ex-Lax would not help™.

Get a life, people, these people are not celebrities. Celebrities are folks like Mahatma Ghandi, Mikail Gorbachev, or Nelson Mandela, who just had a birthday and the news barely mentioned him.

Peace and peas, ya'll™.

Quantum Quips #4: Jersey Shore, Whores & More!

Current mood: Still Feeling Mel Gibson-y
Category: News and Politics

All this hoopla for Chelsea Clinton's $5 million wedding, flaunting it in the face of the poor. Honestly, she couldn't have had it in a small church with just the family? It's not like that marriage would last more than a week anyway. Sends a bad message considering the shape this country is in. It's the same message all the rich have to say, "screw you."


His new word is one that I heartily agree with: Breitbart.  For those of you living under a rock the past week or so, it's the name of a right wing blogger, Andrew Breitbart, who single-handedly frightened the Obama Administration into firing Shirley Sherrod by posting a video he edited to make it look like she was spouting racist dogma at a NAACP rally.  Breitbart refuses to apologize for what he did, despite the fact that this woman's life was turned upside down.  If I had a baseball bat handy, an aluminum one (for the nice sound it makes), I would test it out on this asshole.  So, from now on, if you fuck somebody over or ruin somebody's life, you will be forever referred to as a "Breitbart."  Not exactly bright, but certainly bart and maybe even fart.  Oh, and Andrew?  Have a big glass of kiss my ass!

Of course, the no votes come from the Party of No since they are owned by the corporations that pushed for the supreme court decision to let special interests literally buy elections and politicians.  What else is new?  If you are for campaign finance reform, let your feelings come out at the polls this November.  I know I will.  It will be a cold, cold day in Death Valley in August before I ever would vote for a Republican unless of course I was lobotomized, twice, and had near alcohol poisoning from drinking a boat full of Tequila.  Oh, and speaking of Mexicans...


Yeah, the Ay-Zee is going to become the DMZ after that.   There's a lot I love about Arizona, including the Ecotality Company, a progressive Green company which designs fuel cells and electric vehicles. I even liked the pre-Maverick, pre-Tea Party sucking John McCain.  Sadly, however, he has gone nuts like everybody else in Arizona's government.  Folks keep complaining about illegals stealing jobs, when 99.9% of the jobs the illegals do those same folks wouldn't be caught dead doing---you know, PHYSICAL LABOR.  Remember that shit?  Like changing diapers for rich bitches' babies, gardening for rich bitches, cleaning bathrooms for rich bitches, cleaning rich bitches who can't clean I need to go on?  Keep in mind, you red neck lily white assholes who complain about Mexicans, this country was founded by immigrants.  Granted those same immigrants weren't as TAN, but immigrants they were.


Bell, California is a working class community mainly made up of immigrants who at best make about 30 grand a year.  Despite that, City officials are paying themselves up to 800 thousand a year, all the while doubling the cost for city services.  Are you fucking kidding me?  Thankfully, the city folk found out about it and are taking action.  The proper action, however, is to put these bastards in jail.  This is another sign that people just don't give a shit about one another.  They would rather fiddle while Rome burns and grab whatever money they can.  Absolute power corrupts absolutely.  Yep, that's true, especially in Bell, Calif.  Remind me never to go there.


33 BILLION and change.  You can bet your bottom dollar that a very, very, very, very, very, very [did I say very?] small percentage of that will actually go to the soldiers on the ground or even in the air.  Most of that money will end up in the pockets of those private contractors building shit that only rich Arabs will be able to rent, a good chunk will go to the Pakistani Intelligence Service's hands while they plot to kill us and the rest will end up in Karzai's drug lord's purses.  I think it's time we say, enough is enough and say to Karzai and Co., "it's been real, it just hasn't been real fun."  The president is just being Bush Light (no, not the beer) by continuing the travesty that is Afghan-Nam.  BRING OUR BOYS AND GIRLS HOME---NOW!!!

and finally,


You know you're in trouble as a country when the cast of Jersey Shore rings the opening bell at the NYSE.  Looking for some, not to smoke...just to hang myself.

Peace and peas,

Gooooood mornin', Afghan-nam!!

Current mood:I'm feeling Mel Gibsony today
Category: News and Politics
I had a reasonably quiet weekend...just a couple of tornadoes, flood warnings and shit like that, nothing to get all nervous about.

Then I turn on the news this morning, which was a mistake, and all hell has broken loose over some supposedly classified info being released on wikileaks.  First of all, if it's on the internet, you really can't take whatever is said to the bank, unless you are some asshole named Andrew  Apparently that schmuck seems to have control over the White House for some reason.  They seem to fear him and take whatever he says as gospel, even to the point of firing someone based solely on his delusions.  And here I thought Glenn Beck had taken over the world.  Somebody needs to change their dealer as some weird shit is being smoked by all involved.

But I digress...

As Strother Martin aptly put it in the legendary film, Cool Hand Luke, "what we got here is a FAILURE to communicate."

We apparently live in a world where the internet and the bloggers therein seem to control what leaders do these days.  Some allegedly classified shit gets published on wikileaks and then the New York Times puts out an article and all of a sudden it's the Pentagon Papers all over again.

First of all, are you fucking kidding me?  Do you really think that the intelligence community is that stupid that they are going to let sensitive shit get put on a website?  Granted, the Intelligence Community seems to have become too big for its britches by hiring outside of itself and giving top secret clearances to people who shouldn't even have clearances to the bathroom, but still, it seems just a little ridiculous to me.

Everybody and his dog's brother's cousin knew that Pakistan was helping the Taliban. Everybody knows that contractors make gazillions of our tax dollars in both Iraq and  Wikileaks isn't exactly blowing that big of a whistle.  People just haven't been paying attention until the story broke it all in one lump sum today. 

Afghanifuckinistan is a lost cause.  Here we are, continuing the Bush doctrine of going into a country, claiming that we're going after "enemies," when it's really about natural resources, like oil for instance, and how certain corporations can gain some secret stashes of said resources, all while stealing our tax money and breaking the middle class down to such a degree that they no longer can stand up on their feet, let alone fight in an election.

After seeing some footage Rachel Maddow came back with on where our tax dollars have been going in that shitty ass dustbowl of a country, it just solidifies the fact that we are throwing away American lives and all our money on a corrupt Afghan government and just pissing off the natives to the point where they feel more comfortable with the Taliban.  That sure as shit doesn't say much for the Afghan government or us as its supporters, does it? 

How many despots do we have to prop up before somebody in government says, "enough!"  How many American soldiers must die in order to put more caviar on the gold laden tables of the Halliburton moneychangers?  We spend 7 billion bucks a month on this godawful war and what do we have to show for it?

Well, let me count the ways.  The average age of the homeless in our country is 9.  Nine, I said.  Children going hungry in our own country.  Yet we have spent 1 trillion dollars in a decade long war that has accomplished DICK.  We might have done better by just throwing that money on a big pile, lighting it and warming ourselves come winter time.

You are not going to like my Afghanistan exit strategy, but here it is.  1.  Kick Karzai and his posse out.  2.  Tell Pakistan to either put up or shut up and by the way, stop playing both sides, 3. Surge and then purge, scorched earth if necessary (I'd just nuke 'em, but then that's me), and 4.  Get our soldiers back home.

Needless to say, but I'm just a little sick of corporations running these wars and now taking hold of our intelligence community.  We've seen the travesty that is privatization...from the Gulf Oil Spill to Blackwater to you name it, they'll fuck it up.  We need, as a nation, to sweep our own doorstep for a change.  It's like anything else in life, if you don't have your own shit together, how the hell is anyone or anything else going to get fixed?!

Anyway, I've ranted long enough.  I hope, though I don't have much faith left, that we can start rebuilding our society and our nation instead of spending money we don't have trying to screw around with some other society that wants us to mind our own business.

Peace, love and rockets...

Shirley Sherrod: "Take This Job And Shove It!"

The administration, in their fear of Glenn Beck (did I somehow wake up in another universe where idiots now rule the airwaves?) decided to pull the plug on Shirley Sherrod, a USDA official without checking the facts of what she really said and going along with propagandists as opposed to reality. This action was shameful, and certainly embarrassing for the administration.

For those of you who were living under a rock, Ms. Sherrod was fired because of some carefully edited statements she made at a conference which were altered to make it appear she was being racist. The video, which was promoted by the right wing media, does the same thing as that notorious ACORN video did, ruin something to further a cause. Ms. Sherrod, I might add, is black and idiots like Glenn Beck are accusing the Obama Administration and the president himself of favoring blacks over whites.

Chalk one up for the 'Repubelickans' again. Oh and by the way, the Tea Party IS racist, plain and simple. Where were they before a black president came into power? Where were they when Clinton was in office? Where were they when Bush bailed out the big banks at the end of his term?

It's like anything else in this society, you can do all kinds of good, but that one bad thing will sink your ass faster than a ton of lead tied to your leg in the middle of the Gulf Oil Spill.


The president should publicly apologize to Ms. Sherrod and fire the asswipe who fired her. This debacle hopefully will serve as a hard lesson not to trust the media for all your facts.

This event shows that the administration is so worried about Fox News and their reputation with white voters, that they would actually fire somebody without even checking with that person first. Not very swift. Did anybody in the White House pay attention to the phrase "look before you leap?" I think not.

Ever since B-Rock Obeezy became commander in chief, all hell has broken loose in race relations in this country, most importantly that the true colors, so to speak, of those who do not want someone of color to win, are so apparent that people in power are not thinking very clearly, from the NAACP to the Pee Farty [Tea Party]. Fear should not rule anyone in a leadership position.

And why is Glenn Beck such a big deal to the White House? If anyone takes that dill weed hypocrite windbag seriously, they are 1. drunk, 2. catatonic, 3. taking the wrong medication, 4. have a diseased mind, or 5. all of the above.

If you as a leader believe you are doing the right thing for the American People, who gives a rat's ass what anybody thinks? The Right Wing are just waiting for the chance to win back their control over the government so they can continue to line their pockets and keep the working people down and out, so they can band-aid the economy and let someone else pay for it...again. The rich get richer, the poor get poorer. If the Grand Oiled Pustules had their way, which they probably will come November, we'd go back to life as it was in the 1950's. "Let them eat cake" indeed.

If I were Shirley Sherrod, I'd just say to the USDA Czar: "Take this job and shove it."

Peace and peas, y'all...

Apocalypso - Weird-Ass Wednesday Low Hang Lohan Edition!


First of all, DO NOT send me any event invitations, spam comments or emails - they will be deleted, so you would be wasting not only your time, which I assume has value to you, but mine, which is even more valuable.  I realize Myspace® is mainly a place to huckster your music or whatever, but if you must do it, there's the bulletin or status window.  Leave my email and comment block out of it.  Once in a great while I let a comment through for whatever reason.  I might be in a good mood, which is rare, or there might be a personal message just to me, which is even more rare. 

Out of nearly 5,000 "friends," I hear from less than a dozen on a "friendly" basis.  Social networking?  It's more like anti-social networking, if you ask me.  If I were to die tomorrow, it would be months or even years before 99.9999% of my so-called network would even notice. 

Trust me, people, the folks in the animated movie, Wall-E, who spend all their time glued to the screen and no time talking to one another, are US today, let alone 700 years in the future.


I thought I could get through another week without ranting about something in the news, but so much crap has hit the fan, it just wouldn't be right to let it go by without a bitch-slap, even if only by blog.  Granted life is just experience to obtain an education of the physical and we shouldn't take it so seriously, but I suppose I'm still stuck in that self-important menagerie of actually giving a damn about the outside world from time to time.


I could complain a little about the hot weather, but when I think about all the animals suffocating along the Gulf Coast because of our collective greed, I really have no business bitching about how the heat is making me dizzy.  In fact, I have to take responsibility for all the bullshit in the world.  We all have to.

We just HAD to have our 3 cars including humongous SUVs to get us from point A to point B instead of either taking a bus or saying, "fuck it, I'm just going to walk."

We just HAD to spend a dollar to save a quarter, which explains why we're not driving around in more electrics and hybrids.

We just HAD to keep funneling money to the energy companies instead of taking out a loan to put Solar on our roofs, even though the IRS gives tax breaks for that.

We just HAD to keep buying cigarettes at $5 a pack instead of feeding the baby.

We just HAD to buy a lottery ticket like we do every day instead of using that money toward paying bills.

Do I have to go on?

We probably ought to get our fucking act together, hmmmm?  I'm the first to admit, I'm just as much a prick as anybody else...I just notice my prickishness more.  And, no, I don't give a shit that prickishness is not a word.  Do I LOOK like I do?  Because if I do, somebody needs to break out the dark glasses and start reading braille, 'cause your eyes are fucked. 


I thought it was way over the top the way the news media paid so much attention to the Tiger Woods scandal, but here they are going nuts over people like Lindsay Lohan and Lebron James as if they are religious icons.  Mothers Teresa, they are not.  Motherfuckers, maybe.

Lindsay Lohan getting 90 days in the Hoosegow is nothing considering her last stint, all of 84 minutes behind bars, did not seem to have any effect on her behavior.  If anything, lenience just made her all that more arrogant, thinking doing time was just for losers like her fans.  Ya know, Lindsay, coming in to court with elaborate nail jobs including "fuck you" written on the nail of the middle finger on each hand isn't exactly the best way to convince a judge to take pity on your ass. 

What she should have done, in a perfect world, is stand up and say, "yes, judge, I deserve that sentence because of my attitude and my behavior, thank you for your generosity in passing this sentence."  Of course, this isn't a perfect world and she is the typical celeb who thinks 1. that her shit don't stink and 2. she is above the law.  Her upcoming role of playing Linda Lovelace certainly should come as no surprise to thinking folks around the world.  Do I have to say it?  She SUCKS...and in more ways than one, apparently.

Lebron James does know how to bounce a basketball, apparently, but for the news media to give him an hour to announce what team he has chosen to link up with is ridiculous...emphasis on the "DIC." 

Fuck these so-called celebs.  They are no better than any of us.  They just happen to have access to the money.  To celebs and wannabe celebs who think they are special, have a big glass of KISS MY ASS!


The alleged female running against Harry Reid in the Nevada senatorial election compares herself, in interviews, to Abraham Lincoln.  First of all, no Republican alive could ever, even piling all of them together, hope to be as forthright and decent as Abraham Lincoln.  By today's standards, Ronald Reagan would be considered a communist by these Neo-McCarthyist Pee Farty self-centered pustules.  Pee Farty is my nomenclature for Tea Party, by the way, in case you had not read my previous rants.

But I digress...

The idiot in question is the mind-numbed Sharron Angle, running on the Pee Farty ticket against democrat Harry Reid in Nevada.  Lord help us all if for some odd reason this person were to win that election.  Why?  Her stand on the issues is so horrendous, she has to sue the media to prevent them from calling attention to it.  Some of her asinine beliefs, as outlined in a Huffington Post article, include abolishing Social Security and Medicare, to deregulate the oil industry, pushing for Scientology based saunas and massages in Nevada prisons, thinks it's wrong for both parents to hold jobs simultaneously, says that abortion causes breast cancer, is a proponent of modern-day prohibition, embraces the ultra right-wing Oath Keepers, who advocate the overthrow of the government, is for the abolition of the Education Dept., Dept. of Energy and the IRS code. 

The only thing I might, after two consecutive lobotomies, agree somewhat with is both parents working simultaneously so that children are taken care of by baby  In today's fucked up economy, however, just to pay your mortgage, you pretty much have to have both parents working.  After all, we have to maintain those CEO salaries (300 times the average worker, by the way) and keep the big banks going so they can continue to rape us.

The rest of Angle's bullshit is just plain sick.  I am making somewhat of a big deal out of this particular race because it's involving Harry Reid, a key player in the progressive movement and of course the Senate Majority leader.  What gets me wondering is how people have become so polarized since Obama became president.  Sure, we know most whites are prejudiced in some way, but jeez.  It's as if his presidency has opened the door for extremists to gain a foothold on American politics.

So if you think we got rid of the Nazis in World War II, think again!  Angle is just the tip of the iceberg.  Other Republicans with the same or worse views and/or intentions are winning primaries and races all over the map.  Remember the Ronald Reagan Republicans?  I think Arnold Schwarzenegger is probably the only Republican with any sanity left...and that's not saying too much about the rest of the Goppers.

It will be a cold, cold day in Death Valley before I decide to move permanently to Blue Diamond if Angle wins this Senate seat.  If voters are that nuts in Nevada, I'm thinking all those atomic bomb tests must have screwed up the collective DNA in that state.  This story of course, and you knew this was coming, leads to my assessment of what happened with the vote on canceling unemployment benefits for hundreds of thousands of Americans unable to find work...


Having voted down the unemployment benefits extension claiming it was doing catastrophic damage to the deficit is just another way of diverting more cash into their own personal coffers.  I say to unemployed workers now having to lose their homes and rob banks to feed their children, REMEMBER THIS in November. 

Even if I had two consecutive lobotomies and ingested a vat full of Valium®, I still would hang myself before I would ever consider the idea of becoming a Republican.  I've been a Socialist most of my life and I will die a Socialist.  As a Socialist, I might add, this nation is nowhere near to anything resembling socialism, unlike what pund-idiots like Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh would have you believe.  While tenuous, we are still a democracy.  Glenn Beck, by the way, claims we are not a democracy, but a republic.  Yeah, republic this, Beck, you Jackmormon asshole.  The sad fact is that you don't get anywhere in politics unless you have lots of money.

Guess Rush and Glenn will shit their pants if I divert some of that movie money I have been promised into a progressive political movement.

And with that, I bid you adieu...for now.

Keep it in your pants while you dance, homies G.

Apocalypso - Terrible Tuesday Tarballs Edition: Boots On The Ground


I haven't been blogging too much lately, simply because it's much more fun to just stay away from the news and just immerse myself in the things I actually have control over and want to be involved with, like setting up a film company and making movies or just watching them. However, there are times when I just want to break out a baseball bat and go to town on injustice. The Gulf Oil Spill is just so horrific, I can't stay silent about it for very long and I think it helps to rant a little to let off some steam.

I have always been a follower of these universal constants in business, the KISS Principle [Keep It Simple, Stupid] and the IIABDFI Principle [IF It Ain't Broke, Don't Fix It]. In the case of Be Pee and their Dirty Debacle, I say simply use that old Eminent Domain and take them over and seize their assets [without doing harm to their workers]. Next, deploy the military and accept offers from other countries to solve both the catastrophic leak and the damage to the Gulf Coast and GET IT DONE!

The President has a lot on his plate, to be sure, but the Gulf Oil Spill should be the number one thing to deal with right now. He tends to try to be the nice guy all the time and in this case, such a posture is not useful. Instead of just talking about "ass kicking," he needs to actually do it. I may take some heat for saying this, but Be Pee has essentially committed an act of war against America and this whole catastrophe has to be treated as such. Whether it was intended or not, the result is that life is being destroyed on an almost immeasurable scale and it needs to be dealt with, harshly.

Yes, we need oil (you'd be surprised at how many products we use that are petroleum based---like say, plastic), but we have plenty of sources for it here on land. This Drill Baby Drill mentality, pushed along of late by people like Hayley Barbour, governor of Mississippi, who has tried to minimize the devastation simply because he's in the pocket of the big oil companies, is like shooting our collective selves in the foot while buying new shoes.

We need, as a nation, to find alternative sources of energy and product resources. We throw away so much stuff (more than any other nation) that can be recycled, so perhaps some mandatory laws need to be passed to convert our refuse. Aside from that, this oil spill is certainly a wake up call about our bad habits, like say having 3 cars in the driveway and using one or all of them to drive two blocks to get a bottled water or a six dollar latte!


Let's face it, we only seem to appreciate something when it is taken away. And seeing the Gulf Coast destroyed, especially the defenseless animals, certainly has me looking into living more Green. People should start investing in Green Industry, too, as the spill has soured, in more ways than one, America's love for oil.

All I know is, if I was a Pelican right now, I'd be beating the pee out of Be Pee executives with my beak.

Suck my tarballs, Be Pee!


It's been said that this dim bulb, Alvin Greene, an unemployed, mentally challenged sex offender, was a Republican plant and that's how he won the primary. I am no fan of Republicans in any sense of the word, but even I know that's bollocks. Despite having no appreciable campaign or funding and being a bit slow on the uptake, Greene won over Vic Rawl obviously because of some kind of technical failure of the voting machines. I can't imagine thousands of folks just saying, "aw, fuck it" and choosing Greene over Rawl, who has a lot of credentials. Come on, people! Either somebody screwed around with the machines, or some shit is seriously broken. Obviously, a recount needs to be done along with stepping up the investigation of the manufacturers of these voting machines.


This piece of white trash, who's killed at least two women [possibly a great many more] has admitted to killing at least one of them, is apparently not satisfied with his appointed attorneys and is going through them like laundry...or female victims. All I can say is that I hope somebody, like maybe one of the parents of his victims shoots his ass so I don't have to hear about it on the news every five minutes.


There, I said it, and you know that I'm right. The cold 911 call, the pulling of the plug after one day on the life sustaining machines despite his will stating 15 days, the shilling of herself to reporters, the fight with his parents over his I have to go on? She stands as a reminder to me that 1. It will be a cold, cold day in Death Valley in the middle of August before I ever consider getting married again, 2. My will will be amended to state that vultures fighting over my estate will be shot.


Last year it was "vetted" and this year it's "boots on the ground." If I hear one more pundit or media flunky or wannabe official say "boots on the ground" I will personally place my right boot in their ass! Hard!

...and that's all the hubbub, bub.

Apocalypso - Terrible Tuesday Tarballs Edition: Wayward Hayward


It's estimated that 35 million barrels of oil has spilled into the Gulf Of Mexico in the 50 days since Be Pee killed 11 of their own people in an explosion that reminds one of the Massey Energy mine debacle that killed 25 miners shortly before.

BP or Be Pee as I call them are criminally and ultimately responsible for the loss of life of not only those 11 oil riggers, but of the loss of life and livelihood in the Gulf Coast communities forever damaged by this spill, which is the largest of its kind in United States history.

The United States, however, is also responsible for this mess because of it's obsession with cars to keep up with the Joneses and its subsequent Jones for fossil fuel. A need for something that's dead, hence the term fossil, is bound to lead to drama, and the result will be staring us in the face for decades to come.

And all Tony Hayward, CEO of BP, can do is shill his company and it's rather lame and ineffectual band-aid approach to cleaning up their mess. I see ads all day long claiming how sorry they are for this situation. Tell that to all the wildlife destroyed by Be Pee greed. Tell that to the shrimpers and fishermen in Louisiana who will have to be retrained since their livelihood has gone the way of the dinosaur. How ironic, since it was the dinosaur who provided the carcass that ended up as oil after its death millions of years ago.

The President, bless his heart, was quoted as saying that he needed to know "whose ass to kick." Um, B-Rock? It is, has always been, and will always be, Be Pee. How you can kick their ass is to seize their assets and redistribute them to the Gulf states. The idiot Grand Old Pustule party of knob polishers can do nothing but call this spill "Obama's Katrina." Whoop-de-frickin'-do. I don't see any of you coming up with ideas, especially since folks like Haley Barbour can do nothing but minimize the damage done simply because the oil companies contributed $30 million to his election coffers.

When officials have to turn to Hollywood, namely James Cameron and Kevin Costner, for ideas, something is wrong with this picture, in more ways than one!

In conclusion, we need to wean ourselves from the Oil Companies' teat if we are ever going to progress beyond the primitive way we extract resources for energy. In other words, we need to go from the color of shit (not chocolate as Barbour would call it) to the color of Green and in a hurry.

Oh and by the way, Mr. Hayward? I do hope you get your life back...AFTER you clean every single pelican affected by your spill. In the meantime...have a big cool glass of Kiss My Ass!

Is the President Too Cool for America?

As I've observed for the past year, people are pissed at the president, mainly over the oil spill since it's on the minds of the public right now. It's funny, though, most of those same people who are pissed the most are white and working.

I think the big issue now is the fact that the president is perceived as aloof and distant from the emotions of the American public, especially those suffering in the Gulf States affected by the catastrophic oil spill. In other words, Obama is not pissed enough.

Cool heads prevail, though, right? Do we need another knee jerk president like George W? In this instant gratification society, you're pretty much damned if you do and damned if you don't, especially if you happen to be, you know I am going to say it, black.

That's the real issue here. Just like Jimmy Carter pointed out many months ago, people just can't get past the fact that an intelligent black man is running the country.

When George W. was in office, the vitriol was nowhere near as bitter and even hateful as it is now. People in this country are so angry at each other and so polarized, you'd think there was something wacky in the water, or tea or whatever they're drinking.

My suggestion is to take a tranq, people. The guy is at least making an's a link [below] to a list of 111 accomplishments, which, at this writing, is still incomplete:

Facebook List of President Obama's Accomplishments

So, if you're looking for him to just step up to the microphone and say,

"Yo, Be Pee are greedy motherfuckers who have effectively ruined the lives of every man, woman, child and animal on or near the Gulf Coast and I am going to kick their sorry asses into the middle of next week!"

Well, probably not, unless somebody slips him a LOT of Vodka and Red Bull. But I said it for him. I still like the guy, I think he does care, and he is doing stuff for working folks in this country. If that makes me a target, well, good. Bring it on!

Still....could ya just growl a little, B-Rock?

Have a great weekend, y'all!

Be cool, be nobody's fool and don't dismiss the bliss.

Apocalypso - Thrilling Drilling Shilling Thursday Edition!


Well, only a month and a half and Be Pee still haven't a clue on how to stop the oil spill that is the worst such disaster ever. If I didn't know better, I'd think somebody has it in for Louisiana. I don't have too much more to say about this issue other than to quote a line from Princess Leia in Star Wars: A New Hope...

"You had a plan for getting in here. Did you have a plan for getting out?"


I always giggle at this guy's name because it sounds more like "Nuttin', yahoo!"

But I digress.

The attack by Israeli commandos was an epic fail politically as folks around the world only look at the surface of the issues at hand. Israel is surrounded by people who want to kill them, so their actions, prompted by fear - a useless emotion that pretty much universally controls human behavior around the world, are viewed as "Israel is just being a big bully."

Enemies of Israel are eating up the press coverage. Wouldn't it be cool, though, if somehow Israel would step up to the plate and allow the creation of a Palestinian state? Unfortunately, though, it's not going to happen in your lifetime, let alone mine. Too much money to be made from hate.


SYDNEY (Reuters) – An Australian kookaburra bird is undergoing personal training after growing too fat to fly because she ate too many sausages.
The kookaburra got into trouble with her weight when residents at a Sydney park began feeding her sausages at barbecues.

The porky kookaburra weighed in at 565 grams (1.2 pounds), nearly 40 percent heavier than a normal adult bird, rendering her so unfit she couldn't fly.

"Out in the wild she'd eat a whole small animal such as a mouse or skink, but butcher's sausages are just too much of a good thing," said Gemma Watkinson, Sydney's Taronga Zoo wildlife hospital nurse.

Poor little fuzzy! Isn't she cute? The thing is, as much as we love feeding the animals, it just goes back to the fact that when one starts messing with nature, things get a little dodgy. I got a kick out of this story because I love birds and because I am glad that people cared enough to help that bird.

Speaking of birds, I challenge anyone to get through an 11 minute episode of the Penguins of Madagascar with a straight face. That is without a doubt the funniest cartoon I have ever seen. If you don't at least giggle watching these cute little paramilitary penguins, you're already dead! The half hour show features two uncut episodes and is usually on at different times on Nick, but I have often found stereo versions of the show at 5 PM EST on Nicktoons.

Apocalypso - Thrilling Drilling Thursday Edition!


SEOUL, South Korea (AP) – North Korea, accused of waging the deadliest attack on the South Korean military since the Korean War, flatly denied sinking a warship Thursday and warned that retaliation would mean "all-out war."

Evidence presented Thursday to prove North Korea fired a torpedo that sank a South Korean ship was fabricated by Seoul, North Korean naval spokesman Col. Pak In Ho told broadcaster APTN in an exclusive interview in Pyongyang.

He warned that any move to sanction or strike North Korea would be met with force.

"If (South Korea) tries to deal any retaliation or punishment, or if they try sanctions or a strike on us .... we will answer to this with all-out war," he told APTN.

An international team of civilian and military investigators declared earlier in Seoul that a North Korean submarine fired a homing torpedo at the Cheonan on March 26, ripping the 1,200-ton ship in two.

Fifty-eight sailors were rescued, but 46 died — South Korea's worst military disaster since a truce ended the three-year Korean War in 1953.

President Lee Myung-bak vowed to take "resolute countermeasures" and called an emergency security meeting for Friday.

Holey Gloves! While I think this is just some sabre rattling on the part of cash-strapped North Korea, it will not surprise me if we're involved in still another war, which, of course, will be motivated more about money than saving anybody. Kim Jong sure be Illin these days. Maybe he's channeling Napolean...or Ryan Seacrest.


Baby can now take a dump in style. First of all, I am confuzzled as to how "take a dump" got into the Lexicon. Don't you actually give it? Sort of like, "giving a shit" or "not giving a shit?" It's bad enough Kiwis, Ozzies and Brits are unable to understand us, let alone space aliens.

But I digress.

When I saw this Huggies Denim Diapers story on MS-NBC today (talk about product placement...and I am), I had to laugh. Not just at the way Huggies are shilling their product by making it newsworthy to save on ad money, but at the entire idea of something clearly and utterly disposable (used diapers are not exactly a collector's item unless perhaps they had belonged to and were worn by, say, Megan Fox) is made into a premium. These trendy diapers are only available in June and July and after that...gone like a clean Gulf Coast.

I am wondering if oil was the source material in some way for these as then that would bring the ire out of irony. So, this summer, your baby can take a dump in style - OR - you can get some cloth diapers, a bucket filled with water and bleach to soak them, and go green at the same time by washing them in COLD water. Can you imagine the BILLIONS of dumped in and dumped in the dump diapers there are in this country? If we were to collect all of them, I am sure the methane alone would power New York City and Los Angeles into the next century.

Yep, I've devoted way, way too much time on this story...but if I dissuaded someone from using disposable diapers for a day or even for good, it was worth it.


Well, it would seem most Americans, if you go by the polls, actually support the Arinazi...oops...Arizona Anti-Immigrant bill. As America swings so far to the right that Hitler's bones are rattling, one has to wonder what the results are going to be and whether the backlash against folks of a brownish tint will lead to the Second Civil War. Hmmm, the First Civil War was also about people of color.

When I think of it, it reminds me a little of Star Trek TOS (you know, classic Trek with Shatner and Nimoy) where two alien races were fighting each other over their color differences. Both aliens were striped black and white, so Kirk was a little confused as to why they hated each other over color when they appeared to be identical. Then one of the aliens said, in so many words, "he's black on the right side and I'm black on the left side." The episode did not have a happy ending, and neither will the brewing hate mongering, much of which comes from supporters of the Tea Party, 99% of which are affluent, older white folks. Hmmm, can you see a pattern here?

Maybe we should be a little more like really young children, who are less inclined to hate someone over such temporal and petty things like color, creed, sex, religion, economic or social status. Whether white folks like it or not, America is a melting pot of many colors, creeds, religions, economic and social status. I am thinking that some of those getting nervous are reading statistics that say by 2050, people of color will outnumber whites.

The bottom line is a universal constant - we are all souls experiencing the physical body and regardless of the color of our shell, the soul is universal and we are all one and the same. While I wanted to hang myself every time the cartoon "Care Bears" would come on, I get what the message generally said, which was pretty much "Let's all get along" or even "We are one."

I am the first to admit that I have a hard time with this concept, especially since I have been conditioned to become part of this polarized world. As I make often failed attempts at getting rid of self importance, the aspect of existence that causes drama, I find myself veering a little more toward Universal Soul. I'll tell you something, though, when you embrace "nobodyness" over "somebodyness," you'll get a lot closer to what you perceive as God. Noticing this is a first step, but boy, the rest is a hurdle! Maybe I need to put up a big sign in my office - "Judge Not, Lest Ye Not Be Judged."

For now, though, I'm having fun making fun of this temporal world.

Peace, y'all!

Be cool, be nobody's fool and don't dismiss the bliss™

Apocalypso - Weird-Ass Wednesday WD-40 Edition!

Titillating Tough Titty Tidbits


Just as I was getting a handle on a voice impression of Arlen Specter, Joe Sestak kicks his ass!  Sestak, a former Admiral in the Navy, won the Pennsylvania Democratic primary for the upcoming Senate election.  It's not only a clear sign of anti-incumbent fever, but it's time for Arlen to hang it up.  Besides, Arlen, bless his heart, can't seem to remember whether to thank Republicans or Democrats when he's at a rally.


A Trillion Dollars so far spent in Afghanistan - a useless war, while 17% of people in this country remain out of work, an oil slick well beyond the size of my ass ruins the Gulf Coast, and the Pee Farty (Tea Party for you noobs) complains about all the stuff BIG GOVERNMENT is taking away from them. Stuff that exists only in their deluded minds.  That Trillion dollars could have gone to fund Medicare for everyone, boost education, and provide small business loans to create and maintain jobs.  Typical humanity - they'll spend a quarter to save a nickel.  Of course, with inflation, it's more like spending a dollar to save a penny.


Rima Fakih, the first Arab-American to win the Miss USA pageant is at the center of a Fox News fueled conspiracy theory that she won because the chick from Oklahoma was pro-Papers Please (The Arizona Anti-Immigrant Law for you noobs).  Also, folks are pulling their hair out over some pics of Rima doing some pole dancing.  After laughing at these two news stories for a few minutes, I have to just say this: Get A Frickin' Life.  Rima won fair and square and besides, it's a beauty pageant!  It's not rocket science!  She is cute, though, and quite frankly, more aptly represents the true diversity of Americans.


The Gulf Coast is slicker than snot on a doorknob and Be Pee (British Petroleum for you noobs) is still scratching themselves wondering how to stop the underwater gusher in the environmental epic fail of the century.  Since the Mineral Management Service and the Oil Companies pretty much are strange bedfellows in this matter, one can only wonder how many other drill/spill situations are waiting for us.  All I know is that I no longer drive, use public transport whenever I can, and plan to completely go Solar within the next year or so.  After all, I get mad as the Hulk, might as well go Green like him, too.  It's funny that we're doing this "drill, baby, drill" thing offshore when there's plenty of oil right here on land.  Ever hear of the Bakken Formation?  Here's an article about it. 

Anyhizzle for shizzle™, I'm thinking that "I'm feeling like the Gulf Coast," might just as well become part of our lexicon, with this visual representation:



NBC Universal cancels HEROES yet renews STARGATE UNIVERSE!  Man, I need to find out what drugs the executives in programming are on as I want some of that!  SGU sucks so hard that not even light can escape that black hole.  While HEROES had become over complicated and had way too many characters coming and going or dying or coming back to life, it still had Hayden Panettiere (she's the Whoo in Whoo Hoo!) and generally good writing and acting.  I am hoping Heroes showrunner Tim Kring will convince the network to resolve unfinished storylines with a HEROES movie by 2011. 

I have tried to like STARGATE UNIVERSE, but it's so NOT Stargate-y!  It's like the producers of that show smoked some bad weed and thought, "hey, let's have a soap opera in space just like Battlestar Galactica, only even more depressing and for 12 year olds who don't get laid!" 

The last episode was so bad, I could only get through about 30 seconds of the prologue before just switching to Rachel Maddow for the rest of the hour.  I do love you, Rachel, but sometimes, I just gotta get some Sci Fi on Friday Nights! 

Don't get me wrong, I love NBC Universal, but they have made some really bad decisions, aside from renaming the Sci Fi Channel, SY FY. 

It's like I have always said, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it!"


As Solamaine, the omnipotent singer in my screenplay of the same name would say, "It really doesn't matter, and in a split nanosecond, you won't even BE matter."

Be cool, be nobody's fool and don't dismiss the bliss™
