Facism Comes in Many Guises - Watch for it...

I have become more and more aware of this group of people who call themselves Antifa. I actually know someone I suspect may be a member, and at the very least espouses their mindset. I felt like ranting, but then I came across this YouTube post by Mouthy Budda that said everything I felt. So I thought I'd share.

A Message of Hope...


What a fucking hell hole we have been dragged into by the ignorant frustrated mobs who have chosen to ignore every fucking clue, that the man they have chosen to place into the highest office of the land, is an ego-maniacal fuck, more suited to ruling a dictatorship than a republic.
For those of you who voted for him, I hope I can eat my words in four years.

I hope in four years time that this man turns out to be the savior of the middle class. I hope that he delivers on that promise like no other before him.

I hope that he doesn't RAPE this country like the vulnerable bitch I'm sure he considers her to be.

I hope that what ever damage he causes to this great country and the relationship we have with others, can be healed after he's gone.

I hope that those of you responsible for this pending disaster, remember that your votes made this happen. I hope in four years you can see through the bull shit propaganda that is going to fly in the face of reality, why he and the party that backed him couldn't deliver on any of their promises to you.

I hope to every deity dreamt by man, that he doesn't take us to war. I hope like hell, that in four years time, America's last use of the most destructive power ever created by man, is still a fleeting memory of World War II.

I hope that the Worlds environment can suffer the effects of an America without an effective Environmental Protection Agency. I hope that oil pipelines soon to resume being built, somehow beat the odds of inevitability, and don't pollute our precious water resources.

I hope that the very worst of what I expect to happen in the time this aberration is in office, doesn't come to fruition. I hope that if it does....those of you who voted for him recognize your culpability, and that it shames you.

I hope that four years from now I can be wrong again, and if I'm not...that I can forgive those of you responsible.

Wrong or right, I wish everyone the best, and that we all survive the next four years.

So Very Pleased...

I can't begin to tell you how happy I am that we managed to avoid having Mitt Romney as our next President. 

So I'll simply preface by saying that the best man who ran - won.

Our second greatest triumph as a nation is a new female senator from Massachusetts, Elizabeth Warren. 

Warren is a person of great conviction, who truly understands that check's and balances are a requirement for any society who's economy embraces capitalism. She understands the importance of maintaining our membership in the world economy, but never forgetting our roots, the place we call home, and the need to maintain our ability to self sustain in any crisis.

She understands the risk of capitalist extremism, and recognizes it's scattered footprints, the result of which gave us The Great Recession.

Warren captured my attention when she uttered this statement (later butchered by Obama)...

"There is nobody in this country who got rich on his own – nobody. ... You moved your goods to market on the roads the rest of us paid for; you hired workers the rest of us paid to educate; you were safe in your factory because of police forces and fire forces that the rest of us paid for. You didn't have to worry that marauding bands would come and seize everything at your factory, and hire someone to protect against this, because of the work the rest of us did. Now look, you built a factory and it turned into something terrific, or a great idea. God bless – keep a big hunk of it. But part of the underlying social contract is, you take a hunk of that and pay forward for the next kid who comes along."

If you cannot see the basic and fundamental truth behind that statement, then you have crossed a line into full tilt ignorance of reality, and probably make all of your decisions about politics based upon what FOX "News" spins as "Fair and balanced reporting".

To you I say, do your self and everyone else in this country a favor. If there is any shred of doubt in your mind about what extreme conservative - gone so far to the right that they cannot drive in a straight line, republicans have fed you...try detox. Begin a cleanse routine, stop watching Fox "News" and start watching any other source of national media.

Try reading, there are a lot of great sources on the Internet for you to choose from. Finally, and this will be both difficult and painful for you to do... try tuning into a progressive talk show. 

I say painful, because it will be for those of you who've so heavily consumed from the great TEA POT. Every conditioned response in you will scream, "LIES all LIES!" Just do it, force yourselves to, hell if you don't agree with them, call them up! They love to illuminate those living in the dark.

I said difficult, because truth has a tendency to be suppressed by those with most of the money. So try is what you must, when attempting to tune one of these stations. If you cannot find on the dial, listen to them via your computers or your smart phones. Good luck with that.

In closing...

We are a society, we live together in a sea of other, races, creeds, religions, and politics. We are social by nature, we interact, we connect, our children play together, go to school together. In order to sustain this society, we must maintain a balance of all things.

We must remember that by default, as citizens of this country, we have sworn ourselves to that social contract that Warren spoke of.
