5 August 2015. Some Home Truths About the Obama Family

00 obama family AMERICAS FIRST FAMILY 040815

______________________________

We all know the schmutz that the righties toss at President Obama and his family. Virtually all of it is bullshit of the very highest grade. No, I don’t agree with Obama’s foreign policy. Yes, I do think that Zbig and Hilly lead about him in warmongering. However, I’d rate all the attacks on his family as unfounded, scurrilous, and below the salt (and below the belt, too). His wife is NOT a transsexual… BHO was NOT born in Kenya… you’ve heard it all, your Fox News listening confrères broadcast it for all to hear.

Put a sock in it. The Obama family is far better than the Bushes or the Clintons were and are… there’s no Neil Bush and Silverado nor is there Cousin Billy and his overactive libido. Whatever the shortcomings of his foreign policy and neoliberal notions, Barack Obama is a decent person, an upright man, a loving husband and father, and a moral exemplar compared to the Bush and Clinton Clans.

That’s enough for him to pass muster at the Last Day. Can you say the same about yourself?

6 September 2014. Some of My Favourite Things… Joan Rivers is Dead… One Gutsy Lady

00 Joan Rivers. 06.09.14

______________________________

Today, Joan Rivers, a gutsy gal if there ever was such, died. She was strong, outspoken, and assertive… her humour was usually blunt, occasionally, offensively so, but in a good way… people offended by humour are usually taking themselves too seriously. Rivers wasn’t merely a strong person; she was a strong woman. She was brash, in-your-face, female but not ‘feminine’, and aggressively Jewish. She took the outsider position, standing up from that position to critique the strong and the powerful. Sure, she wasn’t always politically correct… Rivers not only used the word “tranny”, which many find offensive, but she used it (in 2014) to describe Michelle Obama, and then doubled down, defending herself with her usual gusto and attacking political correctness itself. For fifty years, she spoke truth to power, and managed to end with a punchline. Thank you, Joan. Rest in Chutzpah.

29 November 2011. The People of Wisconsin or Rush Limbaugh… Whom Do YOU Support?

In “God’s Country”, That Is, The USA

Yes, I know the source… however, let this be a lesson to you… NEVER despise truth, wherever it comes from, or whomever speaks it. If someone speaks the truth, they’re your friend, no matter what they believe. Believer, Unbeliever, Agnostic, or Sceptic… it doesn’t matter… the Truth is the Truth. Fight all those who spout hatred, no matter how “respectable”, “powerful”, “Christian”, or “learned” they may be. That’s the road to God’s Freedom. I’ll warn you, though… Freedom ain’t free, it has a price… are you willing to pay it?

Do note how the fat porcine capitalist in the lower left resembles Rush Limbaugh and how the false “Christ” in the upper left resembles the “Christ” of the American Religious Right. Don’t forget, Limbaugh called Michelle Obama “uppity”… and we all know what that means…

______________________________

We’ve all heard Rush Limbaugh’s racist comment about Michelle Obama. Click here if you haven’t heard of it. I’m not going to dwell on it… for the people of Wisconsin have given their answer to the Right’s hateful slobbering. Click here to read about the massive effort to “recall” Dropout Scott Walker. In fact, there are SIX recall petitions pending in Wisconsin, not merely the one against Dropout Scott. Thus, if you take Occupy Wall Street and the Wisconsin recall movement (which has already defeated some of the GOP scummers), things aren’t as rosy for the rightwing as the media would have you believe. In fact, the objective reality seems to show that many people have rejected the “Privatisation/Free Market” shibboleths of the Rabid Right. The Top Five Percent Affluent Effluent are jumpy… what do they know that we don’t? Perspirin’ minds not only wanna know, they want something done of it.

There’s hope for America yet…
