DOUCHEBAG OF THE WEEK: CAPTAIN LEE JOON-SEOK

This has been astounding week for people doing things that ultimately they should have known better. It crossed generational lines, continents and race in such a spectacular way that I can only surmise that the human race is doomed if people like this can someone exist in mass numbers and survive. Their stupidity is quite literally killing us. Let us see some really good runner ups.


1)Michael F. Egan III- According to this failed actor, Bryan Singer allegedly raped him during a gay party when he was 15. Sexual assault is a horrific thing and I have met way too many women, and even a few men, who have experienced this first hand and the trauma it causes. In many of these cases, they were not reported because they lacked any proof said assault occurred. And that is exactly why I have such a hard time with this case. First off, it happened in 1999 which is far too long to decide to press charges. We have statutes of limitations for a reason and this is exactly why. Why wait so long to come forward? Now in his defense, one of the people at these parties for the openly gay Singer, had a man, Marc Collins Rector (wow what an perfect last name) who was convicted of underage sex and is also named in the suit. According to reports, Egan and his mother went to the FBI in 2000 who investigated and found no evidence of said crime. Also, Singer was NOT named a suspect at the time, a fact that really hurts Egan's case. This kind of behavior appears to have some truth to it within Hollywood and the government, both of which have had many allegations against them of child sex abuse, but the facts seem to say this may be about money rather than reality.

2)Frazier Glenn Cross/ Frazier Glenn Miller- Another loon with a gun decided to kill Jews in Kansas City and proceeded to shoot three innocent people. Hilariously, even though he was outside a Jewish Community Center and a Jewish Retirement Home, Cross actually managed not to kill any Jews at all, but two Methodists and a Roman Catholic. Oops. This waste of space can go to death row knowing he was a failure at everything in his life, including his assassinations. This ass spent his entire life hating Jewish people, belonged to many white supremacists groups over the decades, ran for the Senate last year and is now going to spend what little time he has left behind bars. Good.


3)ADL- On the opposite end of the spectrum, these douchebags may be trying to start WW3 for unknown reasons. Anonymous has released email information that the ADL was responsible for the now debunked "Jewish registration" leaflets that were handed out in Ukraine last week. Anonymous also released information about a proposed attack on Melitopol Airport on May 10th that never happened which means either the information was wrong, or the fact the attack was known before hand caused it to be scrapped. The fact remains that the ADL may be trying to accomplish false flag operations that could end mankind. Swell.

4)Generation Wuss- This generation had a spectacular week of ineptitude with many, many instances of them doing things that at the very least would get them arrested stat or, at worst, shot full of holes by a trigger happy police force that has a tendency to shoot first and ask questions later. An unnamed Dutch teen thought it would be so funny to tweet a bomb threat to American Airlines. She wrote "Hello my name’s Ibrahim and I’m from Afghanistan," Sarah wrote Sunday. "I’m part of Al Qaida and on June 1st I’m gonna do something really big bye" Of course, the airlines wrote back that the FBI was being informed because they have to take these things seriously. In response to this, dozens of other parroted her tweets with one bomb threat after the other. I hope you like the FBI coming to your home guys because these guys have NO sense of humor. The king of douchebags this week was without a doubt though, Kevin "Kayvon" Edson, a 25 year old lunatic who though it would be great fun to dress in a black beekeeper outfit, with a backpack, barefoot, screaming "Boston Strong," as he approached the Finish Line where crowd's of people were. When confronted by the police and demanding to know what he had in his backpack, he said "a rice cooker." It is stunning he wasn't shot there and then. If this had been NYC he would have been filled so fill of holes you could have seen through him. That and the forty innocent bystanders that would have been struck as those guys can't hit the broad side of a barn. Instead he was taken into custody, his rice cooker filled with confetti. His mom says he has a mental illness which is the only explanation for what a dumb, almost fatal, stunt this was.


5)US Airways- This week in a shocking bit of incompetence, the airline published a NSFW photo of a woman with a toy plane jammed into a place you wouldn't normally find such an object. Worse, the photo was sent in response to a customer complaint as in, "You can take your complaint and shove it right where we are showing you." Wow, and you thought the airline losing your luggage was bad. This did lead to some very funny Twitter responses like, "I see you've found Flight 370," and "You are now free to move about the cabin."

6)Meagan Huntsman- Over the past decade this insane women hid her pregnancies (meaning she must be real fat), gave birth in secret, and then proceeded to murder each and every infant. Seven times this occurred and was only found out when a family member was cleaning out her garage when he came across the mummified infants. Ick!


7)Cable Companies- According to Reddit founder, Alexis Ohanian, cable companies are ready to start exploiting the end of net neutrality and begin raising rates and limiting content. The Tea Party and Republicans have been all over this as against net neutrality as in their minds, government regulations are stifling business. What is actually happening is since they do not have ANY regulations, they are going to screw us over hard and change the internet as we know it, possibly charging a tier like rate and slowing down connections to any website that doesn't pay them for the privilege of better service. They are a monopoly thanks to Joe "Droopy" Lieberman's deregulation bill a decade ago which has done nothing but raise prices and lower quality. Thanks Joe for being a corporatist. Your service in Congress will not be missed. I wish you'd take the lunatic wing of the GOP with you.



8)Bryan Fischer- This ass and director of Issues Analysis for the fundamentalist American Family Association said this week that poor people needed to “kiss the ground” beneath the richest 1 percent of Americans. He went on to blame Obama for using the IRS to go after the 1% which is not only not true, it also proves this jerk doesn't have a lick of common sense. He went to say this:

The top 1 percent are funding 30 percent of the government!” the radio host explained. “So, rather than the poor, the low income and the middle class being resentful of these people, they should be kissing the ground on which they walk!”
 “Who’s paying for the EBT cards? Who’s paying for food stamps? Who’s paying for the women and infant children program? Who’s paying for subsidized housing? Who’s paying for Medicaid? It is the top 1 percent,” he continued.

“So, they ought to be given ticker-tape parades once a week in all of our major cities to thank them for funding welfare for everybody.”

Fischer went on to say that it was a “myth” that Americans had a right to so-called “entitlements” or earned government benefits.

“Every bit of this is the involuntary transfer of wealth,” he remarked. “That makes us a socialist country. This is Marxism on display.”

First off, while he is right that only the top ranges pay taxes, it is the top 10% not 1%, and the richest among us pay NO taxes as they stash trillions away in offshore accounts. And I hate to break it to him but every country has socialist ideas that work just fine. Every insurance policy on Earth is based on socialism. The fire department, police and teachers are socialism in action. Is he really so stupid to think we don't need any of that? What he is asking for is anarchy the likes of which was brilliantly parodied on "Family Guy," when Peter joins the Tea Party, eliminates all forms of government and then watches the town go to hell in a handbasket when everything stops working. I know what Fischer can kiss on me and it is NOT my feet.


9)General Mills- In a true douchebag move, anyone who "likes" this company on Facebook or downloads a coupon from their website, forever gives up any right to sue regardless of criminal intent from said company. So let me get this straight, just because I like one of your products, you've hidden legalese into the "consent" content that prevents me from getting restitution even if you intentionally poison me? Fuck off comes to mind. I would suggest everyone unfriend these assholes immediately, lest that food poisoning you get leave you with nothing more than a huge hospital bill.


10)Captain Lee Joon-seok- For some unknown reason, this dick decided this week to emulate the captain of the Italian ship, the Concordia, with far more lethal results. First, he let an inexperienced third mate pilot the ship alone in dangerous waters, capsized the ferry by moving the boat too quickly, then told everyone to stay below decks as he and his crew fled to safety. Hundreds are feared dead as many drowned unable to get out. Guess who has been arrested just like the Italian Concordia Captain? What is tremendously odd is that this happened during the week of April 15th-21st where history shows a preponderance of death and destruction throughout history. Even odder, many involve teens or children. Waco, the OKC bombing, the BP oil spill and the Columbine shootings all happened in this time period, and continues with this tragic ferry accident. I have heard rumors that these are the feast days of Baal, who likes child sacrifice, but have never been able to confirm it. Either way, this is one of the deadliest weeks of the year, every year and Captain Lee Joon-seok is indeed douchebag of the week. And just perhaps, Baal as well.

“We’re now in a position where cable companies — because they’re basically oligopolies, right? — because there’s only a handful of them, want to break (net neutrality), Ohanian said. “They don’t want the Internet to be flat; they want it to look like your cable. They want you to have a basic package, right? Where you get Bing search for free, because they’ve made a deal with Microsoft. If you want Google, it’s an extra $10 a month, but it’s a really good search engine, so you’ll pay for it, right?”

A LOOK AT THE FOUR GENERATIONAL GAPS AND FURTHER PROOF WE ARE SO SCREWED.

I want the Millennials, who I not so affectionately call Generation Wuss, know that I am stereotyping your group as I know for a fact many of you out there are doing something about change. The problem is, most of you aren't. And this isn't just your group failing the system. We all are at this point. Let us take a look at all four generations and see what the have to offer and what they are completely oblivious to.


The Greatest Generation grew up during the Depression and WW2. They saw real hardship, sacrifice and death the likes of which haven't been seen since. They grew up with a father who went to work, or maybe not if it was in the 1930's, and a mother who stayed home with the kids. They oversaw the rise of the biggest middle class the world had ever seen, America was prosperous and, for the most part, happy. However, since those grand old days, this group has turned into some of the most bitter, racist, Republican bastards still breathing. This is the group that votes against their own interests on a daily basis as the GOP's party platform routinely wants to eliminate Social Security and Medicare, a program 90% of them rely on. That is stupid. It would be like voting against food or clean air. Oh wait, they vote against that too as Republican anti-regulation nonsense is poisoning us regularly. These are the regular Fox News viewers and the most-ill informed individuals alive today. Talk Radio exists to placate them and they eat it up and believe every word of it. Their generation does not have the same degree of mistrust in government and media that the rest of us have as, when they were young, that level of deception did not exist yet. It does now and these old farts are ill equipped to deal with it.

Then comes the worst generation of all, the Baby Boomers. When they first got started, growing up in the 50's and early 60's, which was a very good time to be a kid, they had the whole world in front of them. Again, they had a dad who went to work and made a very good salary, enough for a house in the suburbs, a new car and vacations, which came into vogue in this era. Mom stayed home. As they got older, they stood up to authority, massed in great numbers and helped end an unjust, illegal war. That is how protest is done as some people died for what they believed in, something today's youth seems to have no courage to do. But then the Boomers sold out to large corporations where, instead of promoting a fairness for all, changed business into a Darwinian free for all which eviscerated the middle class and led to every problem we are having today. The made lots of money and figured out ways to hide it, not pay taxes, steal from everyone and everything and then blame everyone but themselves for the issues they created. The men of this generation are overwhelmingly Republican while the women lean more to the left. If you were black in this generation you were the first generation to have a chance to land a good job, a milestone thanks to LBJ in one of his better moments. The Baby Boomers ruined this country for the rest of us and it looks like it will never be fixed. However, this generation still has an independent streak and will stand up to authority if challenged.


Then there is my generation, Generation X. We grew up in the 70's and 80's which again wasn't that bad. School shootings were not seen yet in any kind of huge numbers, childhood was fun, Dad went to work and, eventually so did women, a turning point in American history. Feminism drove women into the workforce. What it didn't do was allow women who DID NOT want work that option. The glut of workers who suddenly entered the workforce diluted the pay scale to levels that have not risen since. Why would employers pay top dollar for someone when they can always find someone to work for less? With millions of new employees, salaries dropped and stayed there. I know this sounds misogynistic, and would never say women should be barefoot and pregnant, but there were consequences to this new idea and the end results have been terrible. When I was eight, my mom went back to work. I spent my days in the library, which wasn't such a bad thing as I was a genius who learned to read at age 2. I read everything I could in the library for the years I spent there, a fact which is why I am so smart today. But I digress. The point of this is, kids started to grow up without any parents, and while I turned out okay, studies show many other didn't. Without supervision, my generation started getting into real trouble as crime spiked, partly in response to this but mostly due to the crack epidemic. We were fools who believed in the American dream, most likely the last. We went to college, got good jobs and thought we would be okay if we kept our heads down and didn't bitch too much. We were such idiots. We all got laid off in the Great Recession of 2009, our 401k's dragged us down even further and then found out there were no good jobs left to get. Almost every single person who has been laid off since 2008, had not found a job any where near what they used to get paid. Worse, there is no end in sight to this pay drought which is literally killing the middle class now. We should have fought back harder against the rising tide of idiocy, but we didn't and that is our greatest failure.

Lastly, there is the Millennials. They are growing up in a huge cloud of poison, radiation, tainted water, and foul air. They are being raised in a culture of death, pornography and other hazards that no generation has ever seen. They have neither a mom or a dad at home because my generation is too busy working fifteen jobs to notice. They are going to go to a college that will guarantee them nothing except a mortgage size debt and no way to pay it off until they long dead. Most will never be able to afford a house, or even a new car at this rate. They are technologically savvy in a way few previous generations are. They are also wholly self absorbed, single minded and have apparently bowed to authority in signs of submission rarely seen in youth. The police state has indoctrinated them to NOT rebel, less they get arrested and any future at that point is destroyed. The problem with this is, soon it won't matter as the rich will have the power and their future will be destroyed regardless. Sometimes you have to rebel, no matter what the costs and today's youth has to get on the ball and start mass protests again, only this time have demands, a leadership and the willingness to get shot if need be. I write this column knowing that sooner or later I may piss off the wrong person or organization and then you will be reading about my "suicide" in the local paper.


However, some Millennials are going about this the right way by suing places to get their way. Now when that uppity bitch from New Jersey sued her parents for not paying for college, that is Generation Wuss in action. The opposite is the suit against Northwestern College to treat their athletes like a union. That is smart and devious and I love it. College athletes should be paid for their time considering the billions of dollars being made and the fact that some of these guys are going hungry without adequate housing says a lot about how slave like some of these guys really are. Another lawsuit is one that intends to end unpaid internships which is great because corporations have turned what should be valuable work experience, into literally using them as unpaid employees, doing things someone making money should be doing. It may not be a mass protest demanding the resignation of the entire Supreme Court (hint, hint) but it's a start. Millennials are our last hope. If they don't stand up and fight against the tyranny that is becoming rampant, then we really will be a oligarchy with no hope, no future, no nothing but slavery. Your choice young people. Choose wisely as the rest of us are depending on you.

THE BUNDY RANCH DEBATE, GENERATION WUSS AND OTHER SIGNS OF ABJECT INSANITY FROM THE LEFT.

Normally I side with the left over the right on many issues, other than gun control. But lately, the left, and the youngest generation in particular, seems to have lost their minds. I mean that quite literally in some cases as there have been numerous attempts at seeing which idiot can get arrested first and serve the longest sentence.


Let us start with the whole Bundy ranch debate, which because it is filled with the usual brand of right wing loons, like Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh and the like, have been automatically branded as more Tea Party nonsense that is just not worth listening too. That is exactly the wrong approach to take though. Just because someone is wrong 90% of the time, doesn't mean they are wrong all the time. This is one of those rare cases when they actually have a story. I know that for every bullshit scandal like the IRS, Obamacare or Benghazi nonsense, there is a genuine story in cases like this, Fast and Furious and Obama's questionable diplomacy skills lately. They just get lost in the white noise of the GOP crazy machine.

There are tons of left wing sites proclaiming that the Bundy Ranch sage is nothing more than Tea Party lunatics that don't want to pay taxes. However, they are failing to see the big picture here. First, the BLM didn't need to go in a guns blazing, attack dogs at the ready, snipers on the hill scenario. Instead, they could do what has always been done in tax disputes which is use the IRS to crush Bundy with tax liens, fines and other ways they have destroyed people in the past. Why the gung ho, military style bravado then? This is a message, pure and simple that mess with the feds and you will be shot. This is why you no longer live in a democracy when the Federal Government is no longer even following their own laws.


The Homestead of Act and the Constitution also provide some cover for the Bundy Ranch, as what this appears to be is nothing more than a blatant land grab by the BLM, something they are doing with increasing frequency. Thirty years ago, the BLM stole 140 acres from a Texas rancher for which he received nothing in return. How is that legal for ANY reason. Word is they are seeking 90,000 more acres for which local ranchers will again get nothing in return. If the government said they were taking your house, giving you nothing for it, and will then give it to some Chinese couple, would you let them? How about if they said you could stay in your house that you own completely, but would have to pay taxes on it double what your neighbor pays just cause? Of course not. But that is what is happening right now with this land and the left is all but cheering for it because Bundy doesn't happen to be a San Francisco hipster.

As for those that stood up the government outside the Bundy ranch, 16 have been arrested for "domestic terrorism" which is terribly ironic as it is the Federal Government acting like thugs and not vice versa and are being held without bail. This is from Before It's News:

"Federal agent Paul Horner, a 14-year veteran of the force, spoke with National Report by phone and had this to say:  “Under direct orders from the FBI and the DOJ, on behalf of the BLM, we have infiltrated the crowd with armed undercover agents.  The agents are collecting intel and coordinating that information with drones that are also overseeing the disturbance.  In addition, we have positively identified approximately 85% of the crowd and are running background checks for previous violations, warrants, etc.  License plate numbers of protesters are being collected and entered into the national database as well.  These right-wing extremists pose a serious threat to the safety of the operation and we have orders to make arrests and confiscate firearms.”

Don Campbell, a participant in the protest stated, ”I haven’t seen anything like it in my life.  The protesters seem to have been minding their business and those agents did not appear to be local guys.”  When asked to describe the victims, Mr. Campbell replied “two of them were middle-aged ladies and one of them appeared to be a teenage boy.  The other three were heavier set middle-aged white men.”  According to Campbell, the officers were taking turns ridiculing the victims and at one point even pepper-sprayed two of the older men before placing them in flex-tie restraints and escorting them to nearby squad cars.  Don referred to the scene as “modern-day fascism” and suggested the officers may have been federal agents sent directly from the Obama Administration in an attempt to silence opposition.

This is the new America where protest is banned, free speech is bought and paid for by the corporations, and your vote doesn't matter anymore.  If you don't believe we live in oligarchy, with all the facts that we do, then the left is no better than the right in lunacy and stupidity as they are selling us out just as fast as the Tea Party.


Speaking of lunatic behavior, Generation Wuss hit an all time low with several instances of the most suicidal behavior I have ever witnessed. Earlier this week, an unnamed teen girl thought it would be HILARIOUS to tweet a bomb threat to American Airlines. Needless to say, someone has been arrested and now faces serious charges. So did that detract from her contemporaries from doing the same thing? Hell no, dozens followed lemming like by tweeting similar threats to various airlines. These threats are taken VERY seriously and people have done real jail time for them in the past, such as the Facebook teen who posted he was going to shoot up a school. He got several years in prison for that. These idiots are looking at the same thing, which means their future is dead as no one with a criminal record for anything anymore can find a job in today's hyper-sensitive culture.



The Grand Poobah of Morons took place this week when an allegedly mentally unstable teen thought it would be a fun idea to dress in a black beekeeper outfit during the Boston Marathon Memorial yesterday, screaming at the top of his lungs before throwing a black back pack into the middle of the street. It is only because Boston police are NOT the trigger happy loons of LA or NYC that this ass is still breathing. Right now he is at the Bridgewater mental institution for the insane where he will probably be for some time.

The point of all of this is is that the left is becoming just as unstable as the right and until we realize that the government is using that against us, to keep us divided, from seeing the truth that we under the thumb of the super rich, nothing will change and we actually get worse. Let us come together and realize that corporations run the show and all the blame on the government is no better than blaming Ronald McDonald for a bad hamburger. The rich run the show. It's time to make that gravy train stop by whatever peaceful means we can. We are running out of time before violence will be our only solution and that will most likely end badly for everyone.

LAND GRABS, PRIVATE PRISONS, RAIDS ON INNOCENT PEOPLE AND OTHER SIGNS YOU LIVE IN A OLIGARCHY

If you were paying attention this week, past all the distractions that seem to pass with greater frequency like spree shootings/stabbings, war drums with some far-off place that few seem to be able to find on a world map, and of course what ever celebrity garbage they can throw at us, some pretty important stuff took place. It was not mentioned on any newscast or reported in any major newspaper, beyond locally. But it proved that not only do you NO longer live in a free society, some of you out there are waking up to that fact and standing up for yourselves. If we could only get Generation Wuss to join in.


Let's start with this tidbit, which will appear in the academic journal Perspectives on Politics this Fall. The study definitively finds out what I have been saying for some time now: The US is no longer a democracy, but an oligarchy, which by definition is hugely corrupt and now no longer governed one wit by you or me. The rich hold all the cards and we don't even have a seat at the table.
Congratulations America, due to your inability to think for yourselves, to let yourself be walked around by people whose interests were not your own, this country is now toast. Mozle Tov.

Here's a quote from it:

“Despite the seemingly strong empirical support in previous studies for theories of majoritarian democracy, our analyses suggest that majorities of the American public actually have little influence over the policies our government adopts. Americans do enjoy many features central to democratic governance, such as regular elections, freedom of speech and association, and a widespread (if still contested) franchise. But, America's claims to being a democratic society are seriously threatened” by the findings in this, the first-ever comprehensive scientific study of the subject, which shows that there is instead “the nearly total failure of ‘median voter’ and other Majoritarian Electoral Democracy theories [of America]. When the preferences of economic elites and the stands of organized interest groups are controlled for, the preferences of the average American appear to have only a minuscule, near-zero, statistically non-significant impact upon public policy.”

The authors go on to say their data is almost certainly under-representative of how much power the rich and corporations actually have, which is not a good thing at all. In other words, no matter how bad you think things are, they are actually much, much worse. We are now officially no better than Russia or China. Our elections are shams and the government is under complete control by the rich. Want proof?


The BLM standoff has fizzled for the moment, thanks to brave men and women who put their lives on the line for what is right. There needs to be more people like that and less of the OWS crowd that decided protesting wasn't worth their time and have retreated to snarky comments on left wing websites which did not fare well over this whole scenario. The BLM has vowed to continue, but they will wait until things die down for a round 2. I suspect, next time though, there may be even more people trying their best to stop this. This is how civil wars start and word in the military is that this kind of stuff will not fly with them. However, with private armies available, like Blackwater, US troops may get marginalized by paid for storm troopers. If that sounds out there, understand that every day, the government, and thus corporations, are getting more and more power. At some point, they are going to come down like a hammer on us, for security reasons or for the children, or some equally outlandish bullshit, then people like you and me will disappear into some black prison never to be seen again.

It's already happening right now. Private prisons are buying up politicians, like Arizona state rep John Kavanagh, who recently added $900,000 to the state budget for a private prison just cause the $45 million they are already getting wasn't enough. Arizona is one of four states, them plus VA, OK and LA, to guarantee 95-100% occupancy rates. How do guarantee filling up a prison you ask? Put people in there who don't belong. The poor, the mentally challenged and of course, drug users.


Also innocent people are going to jail more and more often. One such woman of IL, Angela Kirkland found herself in trouble when she had the audacity to shop a store that sold, wait for it, gardening supplies. The DEA saw her leave with a small bag of goods for her garden, decided it was for drugs, staked her out, found "drug" material in her garbage, and said her electrical bill was "too high" so they raided her place in full SWAT attire at 5 am only to find nothing more than a few grams of pot and no grow room. Oops. Another man got the same treatment because a "lack of drug evidence" found in his garbage was evidence of him hiding his drug grow clippings. REALLY? Yet both of these people went through the ringer for no reason and a blatant disregard for the Constitution.

In Dallas, the cops are saying filming police is a major safety hazard, as we all know that police are always on their best behavior at all times, filmed or not. Oh wait, they are cracking skulls and asking questions later. Nevermind the fact the Supreme Court ruled in 2012 that filming police is fine, these assholes know better. Tape is the only thing getting justice and the fact the boys in blue whine about it makes me want to puke. Albuquerque residents are demanding the resignation of the mayor and chief of police after the DOJ said the local police were indeed executing people, so some departments are getting a wake up call.


The long and the short of this is that our government is no longer our own, It something that has been planned from before most of us were ever born and has now come to fruition. It has it's hands in everything from the deaths of JFK, RFK, and MLK, the Gulf of Tonkin, Waco, OKC, and 9/11 to name just a few. They have all the power because we let them take it. And chances are, no matter what we do, fight, not fight, the end result is going to be very, very ugly. Most revolutions happen far too late to fight off the inevitable. I fear we have waited WAY too long to say anything. There is no right vs. left, no black vs. white anymore. It's the super rich versus the rest of us. Wake up people. The house is burning and chances are good we are all about to become super crispy.

DOUCHEBAG OF THE WEEK: THE BLM

It's about freaking time America but some of you actually stood up to the federal government and made them back down. Way to go dudes! I would also like to point out that this standoff was almost wholly Baby Boomers and Generation X standing up for their rights, while Generation Wuss was too busy snarking about it being "overblown" on left wing media outlets and ignored completely but the MSM. But a win is a win and I'll take it anyway I can get it. Let's see those runner ups.


1)John Kerry- I will admit I voted for John Kerry and hated myself for it every minute since. At the time, I just hated Bush WAY more and would have voted for a dead squirrel over that dick any day. My sources have told me he is an arrogant jerk who never knows when to stop talking. So who better to irate world powers than a guy like that? One of the worst Secretaries of State of all time (which if combined with Eric Holder and the, on her way out, Kathleen Sibelius, Obama has picked some real doozies for office) is trying to hold together the Israeli/Palestinian peace accords, somehow unaware that this is NOT possible. First rule of diplomacy in two warring states is that you can't make peace with people who want you dead. The Israelis are not going back to pre-1967 borders without concessions by the Palestinians. The Palestinians are not going to recognize Israel unless they get the right to return which is NEVER going to happen. Stalemate. End of any deal. Start with that and work you way smaller not vice versa or you will always hit that brick wall and, then, it's game over. The peace process is done and Kerry as always makes us look like idiots.

2)Eric Holder- Speaking of idiots, Holder got testy with Congress this week and snapped at resident Congressional idiot, Louis Golmert, for having the audacity to ask him questions. Holder is being threatened with contempt again for not giving Congress what they asked for, which Holder has used Presidential privilege several times to NOT comply. Holder's DOJ finally released their finding that the Albuquerque Police Department is out of control and violating the Constitutional rights of the locals. About time numnuts.


3)Kathleen Sibelius- The person mostly responsible for the website debacle still plaguing Obamacare seven months later is stepping down, because she likes leaving things half finished apparently. Most likely she was being forced out before the 2014 elections as her position has been an unmitigated disaster and would be lightning rod for GOP ads. Good bye and good riddance. Can you take Obama and Holder with you please?

4)Paul Ryan-Just so you didn't think that this was a rag on the president and democrats only comes this fool who has put out his latest budget which is STILL a carbon copy of the same budget the country roundly hated in 2012. That's some insanity. He still wants to kill Medicare, SS has been taken out for now but you know they are just itching to get to that cash cow as well, and of course, huge tax breaks for the rich and powerful, paid for by eliminating programs for the poor. That is the modern GOP, for the rich, about the rich and only the rich.


5)Alex Hribal- This 16 year old douche thought it would be awesome to bring two knives from home and go on a stabbing spree in his high school. Dozens were injured but, luckily, no one died. I am guessing mental illness and bullying took place but, either way, this kid will never see the light of day again. Enjoy prison loser.

6)Robert Corchado- The ex-con is about to go prison forever. This California native has been in and out of prison eight times over the last few decades. But after the accidental death of a very cute four year old girl, he'll be lucky to see parole by the time he is ninety. Corchado rammed into the back of another car causing that car to careen into a pre-school, where several were injured and one little girl died. He fled the scene. Seems douchebag can't drive for shit either as he was being investigated for a similar incident in December of last year. His face was EVEREYWHERE and he turned himself in, realizing that the gig was up. You and above Alex should be pen pals. You're both going to have  a lot of time to kill.


7)Anne Green- This "actress" was under contract to appear in the Skinamax show Femme Fatales, which is soft core porn. Green refused on set to do what she was contractually obligated to do (get naked) and left. Later she sued for being "bullied" into doing the nude scenes. Cinemax is countersuing for $85,000 for breach on contract. I've seen Hollywood contracts. Hell, I've written a few. They are very detailed. For this idiot to claim she had no idea that nude scenes were going to happen either makes her incredibly stupid or this whole thing was some devious plot for an equally idiotic lawsuit. Either way, she's screwed and will have a hard time getting work from here on. Way to ruin your career moron.

8)Allison Ernst- For some unknown reason, this woman decided to throw a shoe at Hillary Clinton as she was giving a speech. It barely missed her as secret service agents ushered her away. She was later released but still faces up to a year in jail. I was waiting for the word Benghazi to appear at some point, and am a little disappointed it didn't.


9)John Rowland- I hate John Rowland with the fire of a thousand suns. His corruption destroyed the state of CT to such an extent I don't know if it will ever recover. He blackmailed corporations into giving them millions of dollars before he would allow them to break ground anywhere. It is the number one reason the Adrians' Landing project went nowhere for over twenty years. I tried to get a movie studio built at the old Jai Lai building, and at the same time, Dee Snyder of Twisted Sister was trying to get a heavy metal museum going. Both of us hit brick walls when money was demanded up front, some $4 million which seemed to be the going rate as Aetna ponied up said funds to build something I don't remember anymore. When Rowland was arrested for corruption, color me not surprised. Now this fucking asshole of extraordinary proportions has been arrested again this time for seven counts of campaign finance fraud. Seems he was working under the table for a buddy of his running for office. Not wanting to be tied to the campaign, as the Rowland name is synonymous with douchebag, the money was funneled hush hush through a nursing home. If found guilty, he can expect a long sentence in federal prison due to his record. If there is a God, please, please, please, send him somewhere where I know someone in there with him. I would love for him to be someone's bitch for once.


10)The Media- In the following story I will take more about the BLM, Harry Reid and what occurred at the Bundy ranch. If you don't know what I am talking about, thank your MSM which did everything they could to NOT report a major story and proves that you no longer live in a free state with a media that reports the news. As a matter of fact, CNN just announced they will be doing LESS news now as Anthony Bourdain and Morgan Spurlock shows are just the start of Jeff "how in the hell dose this guy still have a job" Zucker, current CEO of CNN. Considering all CNN talks about is the missing plane still, even though no new news has appeared in weeks, it's still 24/7 Flight 370. Fox is no better, especially after an anchor mistakenly said NAACP instead of NCAA, a Freudian slip methinks. The left wing media outlets, like Media Matters, blasted sites like mine and Drudge Report for making mountains out of molehills in the Bundy ranch standoff, but the reality was, something important was going on, and everything the government was telling us was a lie. And we proved it. If it wasn't for alternative media, this may have gone done much worse than what actually happened. But we prevailed and the MSM can suck it.


11)The BLM- The Bureau of Land Management stepped in it big time this week when they attempted to steal land and cattle from local rancher Cliven Bundy. They showed up with helicopters, snipers, tanks, and attack dogs. They beat people for no reason, declared spots "Free Speech Areas," which of course were miles away from what the BLM was doing and arrested anyone for filming in areas they were said not to, tazed a pregnant woman, and attacked protestors who they said were being aggressive, even though video shows the opposite. But the people not only didn't back down, they stood up the government. Armed cowboys broke ranks and rescued the cattle, which had been taken from their dying calves. If you do something like this, don't do it during calf season morons. The BLM was forced to stand down, noticing that there was a good chance of this going south fast, and no matter how it turned out, the BLM were going to be the bad guys here. They did everything they could to stop this info from getting out, including shutting down local cell phone towers but the "signal can't be stopped, Mal." Media sites like this made sure you heard about it while the MSM slept. It turns out that the whole garbage about the land being environmentally protected for desert tortoise was far from the truth. The Feds killed hundreds of these little guys because they ran out of funding. Brilliant. Also, Harry Reid has been tied to fracking rights for oil companies and a huge deal with China to provide solar panels for that area have been brought up by these kind of sites as well. That is why money in politics suck as corporations told Reid "we want that land" and he used the BLM to try to get it. Welcome to fascist America. It's here to stay but thanks to the brave people who stood up to the BLM, maybe not so easy to control. So congratulations BLM, you are indeed douchebag of the week .

CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER IS ONE OF THE BEST MOVIES OF THE YEAR AND A CAUTIONARY TALE OF THINGS TO COME

When I was working as a professional movie reviewer, one of my first reviews was V For Vendetta. I raved about it, calling a subversive masterpiece that was going to resonate with many world wide. My peers called me a fool, that the film was a minor blip on the radar that would be quickly forgotten. Time travel nine years in the future and Guy Fawkes masks can be found at every protest no matter where on then globe it is. That is a powerful film.


Captain America: the Winter Soldier is on par with that film. It is a masterpiece of filmmaking and story telling combined with kick ass action and Scarlet Johansson in a tight leather outfit (or Chris Evans in tight, tight shirts if you swing that way). It is everything that films should be and usually aren't due to studio influence. This movie not only tells a mass audience a real life parable about why we should be questioning authority, it also shakes up the Marvel Universe in such a way that future films and the awesome TV series, Marvel Agents of SHIELD, will never be the same. I rarely walk out of a movie as happy and excited as I was with this one. It is a must see for everyone.

I will try to keep spoilers to a minimum and minor but if you don't want to know about certain plot points stop reading now and come back after you've seen the picture. I'll wait.

Captain America is back and starts the film taking a hijacked ship from Algerian pirates by brutalizing anyone who gets in his way. His shield is just as much a weapon as a defensive object here, bashing people in painful ways and even killing some who are trying to do the same to him. I am a little tried of the idea that super heroes never kill, and this film shows Captain America as a truly heroic figure that only kills when he has to. But when he does, OUCH!


After the big battle, with Black Widow's help, he tries to adapt to modern life. He meets up with Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie) in a very funny jogging sequence and their friendship eventually leads to him being the Falcon. No red spandex here and the way he flies is due to a military backpack that sprouts wings, which looks very cool in action.

Nick Fury starts to suspect something is very wrong within SHIELD, but before he can do anything about it, he is viciously attacked by unknown attackers and the Winter Soldier. He makes it to Captain America's apartment where he explains all that has happens so far. From here loyalties shift, several characters die or get arrested and SHIELD is destroyed from within by HYDRA. One such death caused my girlfriend and I to laugh due to the latest episode of Robot Chicken. Those that have seen both will get the reference to this movie and Batman at a funeral.

The movie is essentially a true story about how fascism has waited to pounce once again. Hydra, and the real life Nazis, tried to force fascism on us. Hell, in 1936 the rich and powerful tried to stage a fascist coup against FDR which blew up in their face when Smedley Butler, their hand picked successor, wanted no part of the scheme and ratted them out to Congress. Here, HYDRA has brainwashed the world into accepting Fascism for their own good, just like the rest of the world has done. We keep hearing how we need more security to protect ourselves from terrorists, when they are the ones making sure that said terrorists exist in the first place, just like HYDRA. In this film, the first people targeted by the new death star they have built are all the free thinkers and troublemakers that any new government would want offed first, like Maria Hill, Tony Stark, Bruce Banner and Dr. Strange. How different is that from what would happen if "terrorists" started using car bombs nationwide and every Muslim had to be imprisoned because of it, then anyone who bitched about it on a blog and so on?


Our rights are rapidly disappearing. Just ask the ranchers out in NV who are being told they are filming in anti-first amendment zones. These areas exist only in a totalitarian society and have no place in the US except in extreme situations like outside abortion clinics. And even they are not told to stand eight miles away in a barbed wire fenced off area to express their opinion. This movie is a cautionary tale of what we should all fear. Go see it today.

Five stars out of five stars

UPDATED:ARMED STANDOFF IN NEVADA, SCHOOL STABBING IN PA AND THE GOVERNMENT'S INVOLVEMENT IN BOTH

UPDATE 4/10- Militia groups have started to arrive in solidarity with the under siege Bundy family, a story that still is not getting wide spread coverage. The governor has spoken up as being against this land grab by the Feds and even the local sheriff is weighing getting involved. New research also destroys the Federal governments claim that this all about the Desert Tortoise. Their care facility was recently shut down for the endangered species and dozens of animals were killed, rather than find other homes for. Way to protect an endangered species, guys. Also, the land that they so desperately say is for protection is being sold to oil companies for fracking rights which no sane person can say is better than cattle grazing. This is again all about money and the Feds and the stormtroopers are the muscle for corporations to get their way regardless of the people they crush. Welcome to the new America. You voted for it.


As this is being a written, a standoff between environmentalists and a Nevada rancher is happening causing an armed response by the Federal Government. Now while I would normally side with the environmentalists, in this case I am not so sure. Regardless of that fact though, the armed guards are acting like the stormtrooper thugs we have come to expect from our government, no matter who is in  charge.


Cliven Bundy owns a ranch that dates back to the 1870's. He raises cattle. On that same area of ground is the protected species, the desert tortoise. In 1993, the federal government said he could no longer use some of him land for grazing to protect and his herd needed to be thinned. If the government had only taken say 20 acres, I would be fine with that. But they took 186,000 acres or 1200 square miles. That is a lot of land to take for anything. Bundy has tried every legal means possible and eventually, in a brave move, started not paying his taxes on it, as American's used to before they became spineless and weak. As a result, the feds came down like a hammer and started removing trespassing cows. Here where it gets frightening.

Cliven and his family were filming all of this across the street when the Nazis decided they didn't like that and proceeded to beat his son, Dave half to death, arresting him for obstruction and then released him the next day. Now Bundy says his ranch is under constant surveillance from snipers and armed troops.

The maddening part about any of this is the fact that oddly, many of these stories simply won't come up for me. A lot of these appear blocked. Whether that is due to some problem on my end or an effort by the government to stop the distribution of this story remains to be seen. If none of this appears in any newspaper or media outlet tonight, you'll have your answer. The lesson for all of this is that, if you exert your rights today, the government will crush you, which is why no protests of any sort have happened since the destruction of OWS.


While this is going on, some deranged teen stabbed at least 20 people in a school in PA. While all are expected to live, at least three are in critical condition and proves the fact that guns are not needed to cause mayhem. And while some will point out that no one died, a knife attack in China a few months back killed dozens. Guns don't always kill either, but they are much more lethal. The fact remains that we have more spree killings than anywhere else in the world. Why? It couldn't be the fact that we work everyone, students, employees, old people, to death could it? Naaaaa!

Eric Holder's response to all of this is to "brainwash" people into giving up their guns while saying maybe we should have a bracelet that only allows the user to fire it, not caring that such a device would price the gun out of existence or that it could allow then government to put a "kill switch" in said devices if they wanted. Imagine armed guards coming to take you away while your gun doesn't work.


There is even some evidence that the government is working on mind control devices. Technology exists today that beams microwaves in the form of music directly into your brain. That same tech could be used to project something far less fun. It could also lead to ways to change people's thoughts even. Fun.

The government is out of control and few are worried about it. You will be if those alleged death camps ever get opened.
