  1. I never thought I’d live to see the day when I actually agreed with something that Dick “I love the smell of death in the morning” Cheney said but I think he’s right about another 9/11 happening. I believe it will happen and it will be worse than before. With all of the unguarded uranium laying around, all of the countries that hate our guts and are more than happy to sell nuclear weapons and/or information to the highest bidder (can you say North Korea, Iran), I’m terrified to think that the next attack will be a “dirty” bomb. I’m even more terrified to think that the attack will happen in more than one city. But on the other hand, any terrorist group doesn’t have to do anything to us. We’re doing a great job in destroying ourselves. All they have to do is sit back and watch us tear ourselves apart and they don’t have lift a finger. “Their world is full of Maple Streets. And we’ll go from one to the other and let them destroy themselves. One to the other….one to the other…one to the other.” Sad but so true.

  1. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/07/18/benjamin-netanyahu-palest_n_5598997.html Netanyahu isn’t going to stop until every Palestinian man, woman and child is dead. He is the Israeli version of Dick Cheney. Twin sons of different mothers but the same evil father. It’s hard to believe that I was so supportive of Israel when I was in high school. I believed in them so much that I wore the Israeli flag on the Levi jacket that I wore to school everyday. In my eyes back then Israel could do no wrong. They were the good guys. They had the right to exist and fuck the Palestinians. Now, if I could, I would go fight for the Palestinians but I’m too poor to travel to the other side of the world and I’m too busted up (arthritis and a mangled rotator cuff) to help them. Israel reminds me of a neighborhood bully. He runs around pushing and shoving the other children. He kicks them, punches them and hurts them anyway he can. He steals from them and if they cry, he kicks them and says “This is MY neighborhood! Everything belongs to ME!” When the tormented children get together and chase him, ready to kick the shit out of him, he runs home, hides behind his older, bigger, stronger brother and sticks his tongue out at the angry mob and says “You can’t do anything to me! If you do, my brother will get ALL of you!” Someday the mob of angry, tormented children will surge forward and all hell will break loose in the neighborhood.

  2. The Green Shadow Cabinet recently published some starting points for ending Israel’s terrorism. The US should:

    1) Call on Israel to end military operations in the West Bank and Gaza. Threaten to cut off diplomatic ties if Israel doesn’t comply.
    2) Call on all groups in Palestine to respect and match the cessation of Israeli military operations.
    3) Stop using its (the US’s) UN veto to provide immunity for Israeli breaches of international war crimes.
    4) Support Palestinian membership in international institutions, including the International Criminal Court (ICC). The US also must recognize and join the ICC.
    5) End US military aid to Israel in compliance with the 1961 Foreign Assistance Act prohibiting aid to nations that have acquired or transferred nuclear materials outside of the non-proliferation treaty.
    6) Demand that Egypt open the Gaza border to humanitarian supplies and trade.
    7) Have the Office of Foreign Assets Control identify effective economic sanctions to be leveled if Israel doesn’t end its military occupation.

    The Green Shadow Cabinet says: “These are first steps, and will not achieve an end to the occupation, nor will it end all violence. However, it is vital first step for the U.S. [to] end its policy of backing the occupation, and obstructing peace efforts, and immediately stop the Israeli attack on Gaza.

  3. Growing up, I was very supportive of the country in which I
    live… That began to fade rapidly in the early 60s, ending
    on the 22nd of November, 1963. Contempt set in huge four years
    later when I was ordered to be trained to go overseas to kill
    people I did not even know. People that had done nothing to
    us, just like forty-some years later. Keep your damn flags,
    plastic Chinese-made car ribbons and political parties. But
    do wake me when the United States starts to live up to it’s
    founding principles and treats ALL people with respect and
    dignity. And if you want to proclaim your Christianity, try
    acting Christ-like.

  4. Hey guys, pay attention to the mainstream news reports on the Malaysian airliner shot down over Eastern Ukraine. What I’m hearing are matter-of-fact statements from our government, delivered by the lapdog corporate media, that they have proof positive that the Russian rebels fired the kill shot. This conclusion coming before any investigation has even been under way.
    I’m smelling a rat big time. We’ve got to watch who benefits from this incident.
    Ah, war is so profitable. And I do love the smell of napalm in the morning.

  5. Bad news folks…
    With the several big stories occupying the media lately,
    this one almost slipped past. Friday the Obama administration
    authorized exploration of offshore oil along the east coast
    all the way from Florida to Delaware. Seabed mapping to be
    done by firing sonic waves up to a hundred times louder than
    a jet engine. So much for the (remaining) sea life. Even worse,
    will be the extraction of fossil fuel, accelerating the killing
    of life by pollution and global warming. Lots of money to be made
    in our own extinction. Is it worth it? Drill Obama, Drill, you
    corporatist fraud. We’ve been dead since 1963- we just haven’t
    dropped over… yet. btw- Jesus isn’t coming back. Why should he?

  6. Denny…….You know of anybody else who still wants to defend this cocksucker as some kind of goddamned liberal? That is, aside from the typical sheeple who have carried the water for this hack for 6 years now. Bill Press, Stephanie Miller, etc. Why don’t they hold the same standard to Obama that they did Dimson Bush? They would have barbequed Bush for doing that, and he would deserve it. Their reaction to Obama would be like “Oh, well, I don’t think he should do that”, or some other weak, wimpy bullshit like that. Sometimes these people piss me off more than assholes like Limbaugh and Sean KKKlannity.

  7. Thank you mike for a single sane voice in this huge insane wilderness.
    Although, you lament the poor and defenseless Palestinian, you have to consider the following:
    a) in the USA, if you open the door of a household by mistake, the owner can shoot and kill you without any consequence. The Palestinian are paying in blood for the peaceful Islam their parents practiced when their houses were bulldozed on top of their families one by one.
    b)
    http://nation.time.com/2013/04/02/costly-flight-hours/
    Visit this site and see the cost of air force flights which ranges from $ 2,000 to $ 80,000 per hour. Add the cost of the bombs the cost doubles. Multiply 4 hours flight by 2 times expense by 2000 air raids by $ 40,000, and the ten times expense of moving 100,000 ground forces, these poor guys inflict tens of billions of dollars into the pocket books of unsuspected Americans like you in a matter of days.

  8. I should correct the first sentence to :
    “Visit this site and see the cost of air force flights which ranges from $ 20,000 to $ 80,000 per hour.”

Massive wildfires in Washington, illegal districts in Florida, gun deaths in Oregon outnumber car accident fatalities, another Malaysian flight down, this time via missile strike over Ukraine, Israel announces a ground invasion of Gaza, and Huckabee leads the polls of GOP presidential contenders.   Whew – doesn’t get much worse than that.

  1. It’s really pissing me off that Americans are screaming “Look at those fucking Russians! They shot down the Malaysian airplane! Those goddamn commies!” Even Ed Schultz is acting like our shit doesn’t stink. He hasn’t mentioned yet that the US Navy shot down an Iranian commercial airplane in 1988 killing everyone on board. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iran_Air_Flight_655 I plan on sending that self-righteous, pompous bastard the link to that article. He’ll probably ignore it but I don’t give a shit.

  2. I only think this, which shows I know nothing. Nothing is as it appears. My guide to these murky times.

Welcome To America

            For the most part, US citizens have no idea why there is – and continues to be – an unrelenting surge of refugees at our southern border. The ignorance is so pervasive it is easily turned into the right wing political scam (and vote getting device) we are nowContinue Reading

  1. Thanks, Mike, for being one of the few white guys speaking out on behalf of women and children, who are, in most areas of the planet, barely second class “citizens”. Every year I keep thinking, gosh, can I possibly become MORE ashamed of being an American? And every year the answer is “Yes”. To imagine what next evil deed will be done by U.S. Inc. is unfathomable, but the wicked seem to have an endless supply of malevolence. And note how closely that word resembles male violence.

    The only possible way I can accept this sort of thing is IF all these women and children were Cheney-like in a previous life. Not great consolation, eh.

President Obama is standing firm, for once, and making good on a promise. He won’t cave on this one, no siree. The President is adamant – poor immigrant women and children will be immediately deported to the #1 murder capitol of the world. Yup, he’s proving that he, too, can be a decider. The firstContinue Reading

  1. So President Not Sure once again fails to stand up for what is right. How does this creep sleep at night? Who in the hell is this guy? It’s making me ill even to see his visage, or hear his hollow speech. I’m headed outside to split some logs, just to release my fury. Is anyone else dreading the 2016 election season? Just more empty promises and lies – business as usual.

  2. How would President Romney have handled this situation?
    Helped find family members to take them in? Deported them?
    Don’t think so. He might have, though, put them to work in
    our few remaining factories, built high fences surrounding
    them to “keep people out” and made them earn their fare back
    to wherever.

    Since they are trying to escape(and what sane person could
    blame them)from gangs, guns, poverty, unemployment and
    political craziness, why’d they come HERE?

  3. I will just skip any comment on the President. Once again, my heart is broken. I am going to say this about the protesters. People who have that degree of hatred inside of them, for poor bedraggled people who have done nothing to them, are out and out mentally ill. I know a psychiatrist, more than one, who simply states that blind hatred, and acting on that hatred, is not an innate human quality, but is clearly a hallmark of mental illness. I can only agree with this statement because I do not know how else to handle it.

  4. Would these poor, desperate, frightened people be sent back their native countries if they were white and spoke English? I seriously doubt it. How are these refugees reacting when they realize that they’re being sent back to the hell that they left? Are they freaking out? Are they screaming in terror and disbelief? Zeus should throw 100,000,000,000 lighting bolts at this fucking country. We deserve to blasted out of existence by an asteroid. The Limp Bizkit song “Break Stuff” pretty much describes how I feel right now. I’m so pissed but not surprised. “Give me your tired, your poor,
    Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
    The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
    Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me.” Those words are empty. They mean nothing. I am completely, totally and utterly disgusted.

  5. Another proud moment as Obama charters a plane to return victims of violence to Honduras.

    Another moment of shame. I’d like to see something, this side of Shock Doctrine, that actually explains our moral debt to these people and millions more; living and dead. Anyone familiar w/the ‘School of the Americas’ at Ft. Benning, GA? The policies of the USA, for over 100 yrs., in Latin America, on behalf of Corp. America, was and is a legacy of murder, theft on a grand scale. Our governments, Democrats and Republicans, spent much effort and blood, innocent blood, to strip the people of these countries of everything from all of their natural resources to their very lives; leaving corruption and a husk of what had once been their homes. Where else can they turn? Where else should they turn? And, why are lawyers not advocating for the human rights of the dispossessed? Apparently, we are still very comfortable w/Genocide…

  1. Got a pretty easy answer, Kathy.
    On the seventh day He rested (went fishin’) and left the
    back door open. In walked stupid and it’s been down hill
    ever since. Faith: It’s kinda like two-inch putty… It
    fills a lot of big gaps.

  2. I hate to think that people in the rest of the world think that all americans are as stupid as Louis Gohmert. What a dumb motherfucker!

  3. Ya’ gotta admit, ole’ Goob is good for a few laughs. I mean the photo alone suffices – it’s priceless. Kinda makes me miss Don Knotts. Ah, Mayberry – ‘the end of the innocence.’

  4. Has anyone noticed the barrage of brain-dead right wing callers bothering Stephanie Miller, Tom Hartman and Jeff Santos in the past week or so? Although I’ve begged these folks to follow Mike’s example and simply don’t put these a-holes on the air there seems to be no escaping the World Net Daily/Fox News mouth breathers from calling. Of course, poor Alan Colmes cannot escape them as he’s on Fox Radio. Tom’s “conversation” with clueless christianist Bill Keller last week was some amazing radio realizing there are actually people that clueless walking among us.

  5. Astute observation, Paula. My bad- she writes most of
    the posts and she is also the one wearing the hats.

  6. On Fri July 11, 2014 program Mike mentioned a truthout .org article about Monsanto high exposure to liability for damages from Roundup glyphosate because of kidney disease epidemic. I hope the liability isn’t preempted for USA sufferers of kidney disease because of sec 735 “Monsanto protection act” of 2013 continuing resolution to avoid a government shutdown. Repeal the Monsanto protection act in future budget bills.

  1. BREAKING NEWS:

    Afghanistan to audit every vote cast in their recent presidential
    runoff election. “Every single ballot that was cast will be audited,
    all eight million of them,” said Sect. of State John Kerry, who had
    brokered the deal. Yes, the same John Kerry that prematurely hoisted
    the white flag to GW Bush in THEIR presidential election! WOW !!!

  2. House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Michael McCaul (R-Texas) said Sunday that it was “heartbreaking” to see unaccompanied immigrant children held at border detention centers, but also that some of the older children “looked like a threat.” What he really meant was “They’re poor brown people that don’t speak good English. They scare me.”

The Long, Hot Summer

Regardless of the claims made by Neocon Luddites, global climate change is a very real thing. The good news is there are specific measures that can be taken to reduce the rate of climate disruption, if not reverse, the current and future damage from decades of barely-regulated fossil fuel consumption, among other toxins. But theContinue Reading

  1. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/07/10/ronald-lee-haskell_n_5573858.html “Ronald Lee Haskell’s second amendment rights are more important that his family’s right to live!” Wayne LaPierre. Ronnie will make plenty of friends in prison when they find out that he murdered 4 little kids. The other prisoners will be more than happy to show him how much they hate child killers. The Aryan Brotherhood isn’t going to protect him either. They might kill him before anybody else gets the chance.

  2. Wow, I had an advanced math class in high school w/Brad Snell (Who Killed the Electric Car). I was wildly jealous as he had total recall (not, which I’ve learned, an entirely a good thing — who wants to remember the bad stuff, eh?)

    But it just goes to show, our inner self, our youngSTAR knowledge is NOT to be discarded carelessly.

    Peeps, try something small — a few seeds or one tomato plant. When the bad times arrive, you’ll have a head start. And SAVE ALL YOUR SEEDS!

  3. In Kathy’s blog above, the New York Times says: ” . . . by midcentury 60% of our electrical power will come from nuclear sources.” This to me is an arrogant & most dangerous prospect. They are in denial about what has already transpired at sights connected to nuclear power plants around the world. And they still don’t know what to do with the radioactive waste. Here in Ohio, I am sandwiched between to nuke plants.

    It suggests to me that the NY Times is just a gatekeeper for the status quo. Anyone who even implies that these things are safe has got to have a hidden agenda.

  4. Imagine, if you can, the vast amount of American emissions
    that would be cut if the right wingers and religious crazies
    would just ‘Shut the Fuck Up’, even for a day.

    Dot, respectfully, while I never have given a thought as to
    what you eat, I must admit to picturing the scene that would
    follow should you ever get clocked by an airborne fish flying
    through the air at Pikes Fish Market. I can see you hitting
    the floor yelling, “FISH! FISH! MOTHERFUCKING FISH!!!!

  5. Denny, You’re right. I would yell “MOTHERFUCKING FISH!” then I would get off of the floor and scream “WHO THE FUCK HIT ME WITH THAT GODDAMN FISH?!” When I do go to Pike Place Market, I avoid the Pike Place Fish Market. There’s always a shitload of tourists hanging around watching fish being thrown all over the goddamn place. I know that if I did get smacked by a fish, somebody’s ass would get kicked across the parking lot. I do love the market though. Lots of goodies and cool stuff to buy. You could spend the whole day taste testing the different yummies that are available. :D Good way to spend the day. :D

  6. We are QUICKLY running out of time, and water!

    From an article by James Nash:

    Lake Mead, the man-made reservoir that supplies 90 percent of the water for 2 million people in the Las Vegas area, has been reduced by drought to the lowest level since it was filled in 1937, according to the federal government.

    The lake, now at 39 percent of capacity, has been dropping since 2012, according to U.S. Bureau of Reclamation data, as much of the western U.S. has suffered the most serious drought in decades. The shortfall is endangering water supplies to the residents and 43 million annual visitors to the driest metropolitan area in the country.

  7. More drought news:

    SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) – Regulators in drought-stricken California are proposing stringent new conservation measures to limit outdoor water use, including fines of up to $500 a day for using a hose without a shut-off nozzle.

    The most populous U.S. state is suffering its third year of drought and in January Governor Jerry Brown declared a drought emergency, allowing the state to request federal aid.

  8. Being from Los Angeles, I have now decided to cut back 75 percent on my lawn watering, and I am looking in to probably getting my lawns (what is remaining of them) with a combination of gravel-scape and synthetic lawns. That way I will not use ANY water for my lawns, as well as cut down my maintenance of the yards to almost zero.

    I’m telling you all, this drought situation is getting ultimately serious out here in the West!

    Take notes, everybody….this is about adapting…in order just to survive!

  9. Person,
    If you want to go “Synthetic” try filling your
    former grasslands with political campaign signs.

  10. Good wakeup column, Kathy–wish every Amurrican was forced to read it. But half of them probably wouldn’t even let its message get past the optical nerve connecting the eyeball to the brain

  11. Catching up on last night’s podcast with my morning coffee. Just chiming in to say I completely agree about the democratic party, which sold out its liberal base long ago.

    And I have no illusions about Hillary. She is a neocon and a corporatist (strong ties to Monsanto, just for starters). Unfortunately she has also been “anointed” for 2016. I’ve seen some of her supporters get very defensive out on the Internets and claim that people hold her to a higher standard because she’s a woman. While that may be true for some, and while I’m quite sure we’re going to be forced to endure the most hateful sexist rhetoric from the right wing during the elections, I don’t hold Hillary to a higher standard because of her gender. I hold her to a higher standard because she puts a “D” after her name.

    Anyway it doesn’t matter because the national elections are a beauty pageant these days, offering Americans nothing but the illusion of choice.

    I sincerely agree with Mike about focusing on local elections. The system is rotting from the top, but maybe there’s still hope for local governance. It’s not much, but it seems to be all we have at the moment.

  12. Also, dovetailing off last night’s discussion about the de-funding of public schools… charter schools are a total scam — a grift — funneling public funds into private coffers. The money is not used for the benefit of the kids or the local community, it gets vacuumed upward to administrators, who answer to no one, because charters are mostly unregulated (which illustrates the problem with all privatization).

    And very often, these administrators have criminal backgrounds (a feature, not a bug).

    The following article in the Hartford Courant illustrates the rampant corruption in the charter system:

One Response to Equal Protection?

  1. Child Evangelism Fellowship is running the same religious wedge issue distraction, in a midterm election year before the last 2 years of a term-limited President, from the pocketbook economic issues to improve the ever harder lives of the working families that they have already ran back east from Portland in Maryland in 2006. 2006 was another midterm election year leading to the last 2 years of a term-limited President. That election turned out well for anti- Republicans but corporatism from CU v FEC and McCutcheon vs FEC ad buys and grinding economic struggle to ‘earn a living’ and less net neutrality, and state 2011 gerrymandering, may have weakened peoples’ civic knowledge beyond the action point to vote out Republicans and corporatist Democrats and elect people who see past the wedge issues and focus on ending neoliberal economics and neoconservative foreign policies.
