demagoging

amazing how these tea party folks sound like they have just come off Fox news... these blokes can't think for themselves...
they are trained by this new Republicon think    tank to use the same sound bites in the brainwashed neocon way!

*will americans submit to these young nazis, the way the Germans sadly did?

I hear this hispanic bloke , a congressman from Texas... first of all he doesn't speak English as it's not his native language, but if it were not for the heavy accent, you would hear the same speach from Rush!
this bloke says demagoging (wrong way to use the word) , but you hear from every other neoconservative! I keep hearing this word from
the correct definition::
a leader who makes use of popular prejudices and false claims and promises in order to gain power (i suppose neocons believe this aboutObama)
most of these blokes that use the word don't even understand the correct definition!


2: a leader championing the cause of the common people in ancient times (where is our Gandalf?)


when will we become wise enough to not get brainwashed by these very powerful forces taking our govt hostage, the way Hitler took over the government??

WAR AND PEACE


Where's our Arwen to help save the middle earth?
I could be talking about this country or I could be talking about my family and the battles (non physical)
with the inlaws... it's about love and hate... cept with my family , the father loves the son and sometimes Mom...  the tea party is winning    and the in law Papa and Nana are winning...
as the ladies take my child off to a right wing baptist church... (that lends in the right wing religious thinking) ...if you are for taxes  you are excommunicated from our church!
money , power and the status quo so often wins out ...until,,,
REVOLUTION...
as it's happening all over the world ....
a class warfare...
I went outside for a little      herbal inspiration...and take another marker in our life as an individual  and as a citizen of a country that I no longer want me or my immediate family involved with...
I want to take my family far away and escape the lemmings" mad rush
family and close to a very drastic turning point in our government and economy is over...

I could be like the fiscally conservative repubs and in order for there to be a deal...
we all have to arrange spending cuts and no more taxes!
and so where is Gandalf t     to help us lead the tea party hobbits to spending money only on what is essential for our survival!!
so I'm glad Mccain mentioned hobbits...
(cept hobbits should be the demoocrats, but we have to find our Gandalf..and unfortunately, Obama, does not appear to be the metaphoric Gandalf....we liberals desperately need a Gandalf!)

Let the force be with you, Frodo!

I am still looking for my Gandalf, but I'm finding various positive forces in my life to help me through the challenging decisions in my life    ... as we seek our home in Hobbiton Beach going over the river to our mythical(?) heaven...(as Bilbo Baggins  left his long challenging life in middle earth while having  long term posession of the powerful ring..)     which made him invisible to everyone but the all powerful evil Sauron who could see him from thousands of miles away !)

"I am fully engaged with the president!"
said Leader Mcconnell!.....
If i take off my mask , you can see my true face.

My goal is to destroy America and then take over the world!
Trust me. we will not have a default!

The goal of the Neoconservative (newly formed repubs)

"Starving the beast" is a fiscal-political strategy of some American conservatives[1][2] to cut taxes, depriving the government of revenue that enables spending on social programs such as Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid, in an effort to create a fiscal budget crisis that would then force the federal government to reduce spending. The assumption is that the government would not spend beyond its means (taxes). History has shown, however, that the US government - "the beast" - has instead borrowed money to feed its continued growth resulting in ever increasing United States public debt rather than reductions in the size of government.


James M. Buchanan, a Nobel Prize-winning economist, helped develop the Fiscal Illusion hypothesis. It's obvious, he said, "borrowing allows spending to be made that will yield immediate political payoffs without the incurring of any immediate political cost."[3] In their book Democracy in Deficit (1977), Buchanan and Richard E. Wagner suggest that the complicated nature of the U.S. tax system causes fiscal illusion and results in greater public expenditure than would be the case in an idealized system in which everyone is aware in detail of what their share of the costs of government is.[4]

The tax cuts and deficit spending of former US President George W. Bush's administration, extended by Barack Obama, were attempts to "starve the beast." Bush said in 2001 "so we have the tax relief plan [...] that now provides a new kind -- a fiscal straightjacket for Congress. And that's good for the taxpayers, and it's incredibly positive news if you're worried about a federal government that has been growing at a dramatic pace over the past eight years and it has been."[5]

Former U.S. vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin expressly advocates the policy: "please [Congress], starve the beast, don't perpetuate the problem, don't fund the largesse, we need to cut taxes."[6] U.S. Senator Jon Kyl (R-AZ), a member of the Senate Finance Committee, states "you should never have to offset the cost of a deliberate decision to reduce tax rates on Americans."

Positive News!

what's the future gonna be like Daddy?
"CBS)  In the world of energy, the Holy Grail is a power source that's inexpensive and clean, with no emissions. Well over 100 start-ups in Silicon Valley are working on it, and one of them, Bloom Energy, is about to make public its invention: a little power plant-in-a-box they want to put literally in your backyard...."
http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2010/02/18/60minutes/main6221135.shtml
Here's how it works. The Bloom Box is actually full of modules that are about twice the size of your fist. Each module contains a fuel cell about as slim as a cracker. The fuel cell operates by oxygen flowing through one side--fuel on the other--resulting in a chemical reaction that creates electricity. One of these cells can power a light bulb. One module full of these cells can fuel an apartment; two can power the average-sized American home. It's a marvelous example of why space exploration and military spending are a GOOD thing, despite what those on the left may say--Sridhar, a former NASA advisor, originally designed this fuel cell thttp://greengopost.com/will-the-bloom-box-rock/o create oxygen for a potential space mission to Mars. After NASA scrapped that project, he re-engineered the
the cell, designing it to have oxygen flow into the cell and react with fuel....
My instinct tells me that if large firms, especially Wal-Mart, are investing in this technology, they are on to something. As I have always insisted, clean technology will only succeed if it is scalable and cost-effective. As more companies invest and Bloom Energy can bring the cost down, the potential for these boxes is huge. Remote villages off of the grid would have electricity. Utilities could purchase these for their substations. And since these boxes can work with any potential energy source, operating them off of America's natural gas reserves until alternative sources of energy become cheaper will wean us away from fossil fuels. Then you have the smart grid contraptions . . . we may be on to something!"

so many things that I want to say to you... as times flies by in an accelerating way forward to what appears to be the metaphoric cliffs in this country , we are currently living in...at this moment, I've epiphinized where I am ... forty years ago , I had no clue where I would be when I was Dad's age.. I didn't want to be like him, yet I see myself emulating him..
do u think they will grow up to be repubs and democrats..
and hate each other??...or can we give peace a chance?
 the difference is what I want to pass on to our continuing conciousness, Colin...
i teach him to feel comfortable in the water... and we connect and bond more than we have before ... and feel how he is so much a part of me
and my family ... when I see my mother's eyes and smile, when he smiles at me...
he already has it all, the love and affection of his huge extended family..
the epipeheny was discovering my true feelings as I understand myself and can use this knowledge for the benefit of our future conciousness..

our dysfunctional nation could be compared to our dysfunctional disintergrating families... I could easily see my family disintergrate as it did when Mom passed away... my older brother and I rarely visited (perhaps once a year)...
from what I've figured out about myself is that I'm a survivor and when I'm determined about something and want it so badly... I will try everything until it happens.. dreams can be realized... we look at things and then see the way they could be in the forseeable or even not so forseeable future...
and then we see ourselves and our family on the beach...
now I'm at another crossroads and I have to meet these challenges as I have before...
step by step, I have taken care of things with many difficult challenges in my path... and I have had to do it on my own or with the wonderful help of other who help me pursue my missions...
Daddy why does our tax money go for so many wars??
all i can think of sometimes, is Mom and Dad looking down on me as I evolve into a winner the way they believed in me when they watched me win swim races in high school...
we were a very strong family when we grew up...
America was the strongest nation when I was growing up in the 60's and my parents were still coming off the high of winning WW2... it was an idyllic time compared to the way  our country is now...

when we start wanting to do everything for our children to help them survive in this very angry world... perhaps we will be strong as the people who survived the depression and WW2?
a nation can only be as strong as the families are...

we lemmings will not fall over the cliff! its up to the president!...
don't u just love my bug eyes?
in the next week , we will see if this country will get out of this or start falling down the cliff... when I see the way people are now a days with scheisty dishonest business dealings and tea party fanatics wanting to let our country go in default!

uh   oh, we won't have a job when Gandalf runs out of money!

                                                            let's have a tea party where I can eat some tasy hobbits!

Thursday, July 28, 2011

ummm..who started the wars?? umm how much are these wars costing??

When will we hold these neonazis accountable for the damage to our country and others???
What happened to justice in the USA??
  Neocons knew they could blame democrats!
They have had a grand plan for destroying our country financially better than Hitler destroyed Germany..but the difference is that Germany came back and became a financial power... Germans were embarrassed/Shamed to be have been led into ruin by a psychotic,
and now I am embarrassed that Bush led our country down the tubes very quickly... I tell Aussies that I didn't vote for this idiot and knew we were getting into a mess when the republicons wanted to invade Iraq!

 Fox and the right wing media have succesfully distracted us from these stupid wars we started and are attempting to blame  Obama and democrats for the state we are in !!  Have we forgotten about the cost of these wars?\
Why dont we focus on getting us out of these needless wars for oils?
Instead of just focusing on the reason  why we are in this shape??

the audacity of the republiconmen party...
Herr Bush (the bloke whose granddad lent money to the nazis and calls himself Texan) started all these wars for oil with no question about the debt ceiling when we are being attacked by terrorists!.. and we find out like I thought ten years later, that going to Pakistan and finding Bin Laden would have saved our future generations trillions of dollars! For this reason, I want to not associate with most humans.. when my ancestors were cromagnons before civilization over 20k years ago, we might just get our gang of cavemen together and look in all the caves for this bloke who killed our tribe members... instead of going into his territory where he came from and killing half the tribe in the other valley!!
what cave is this criminal hiding in??
.......
"What was the result of the Administration of this “compassionate conservative” George W. Bush? It was the opposite. Just like Hitler, Bush did exactly the opposite of what he promised…i.e., he lied….although with no comparison whatsoever in the deadliness of results. (Although Bush did lie about the reasons for war and his actions did result in the deaths of about 250,000 up to maybe 750,000, and another 3,000 if you included his playing golf instead of taking a serious look at intelligence reports.) ......
But there the comparison ends. The large political forces, such as major pharmaceutical companies, big industrial companies, like Halliburton and Bechtel, and as we now know…Wall Street investment companies….control government rather a totalitarian government like the Nazis controlling them. Today it is all about financial power. These organization control the financial levers of power...
The Big Lie is alive and well today. The big lie now even comes from our legislators, like Senators Ensign, McConnell, McCain, Leiberman, Hatch, Sessions, Barrasso, and many others who call our progressive government Communist or Socialist or some other term that they find ways to make derogatory. They have all voted against a health care bill and supported lobbying efforts to insure that Americans must continue being looted and abused by the health insurance industry. They, plus a handful of Democratic Senators, also part of the conspiracy to leave health care in place as it is, have formed that ideological wall against progressive legislation. These are the remnants of the Bush Administration, ready and willing to do the bidding of the big corporations.
Even though the Bush Administration did not run the big corporations, they did not have to. They are already in collaboration with them on war, social policy, American wages, and…as we have seen from the remaining Neocons in Congress, 100% against healthcare for the people. They say that they are for it and produce a bill that simply takes care of pharmaceutical companies and protects doctors against any monetary loss for killing or maiming your parents, children, spouse…or you....
The policy of complete government control is the same, however. Get all your political friends…not just in your Party, but those within the Party who believe as you do…into powerful and subordinate positions. This is about controlling a country, not about concentration camps and wars. Although, we never did find out how far the Neocons would have gone. If you want to know how far they almost went, look up Presidential rule # 51 set up by George W. Bush in 2008. It created a dictatorship under certain conditions..
Once they had complete control of the Presidency, the Senate and the House, we do know some of the things they did. They did start a war on their own, convict a Democratic governor on trumped-up charges, indicted by a Bush U.S. Attorney and convicted by Bush nominated judges, in Alabama. They had a special CIA section that spied on Americans, and used their newly written Patriot act to check on your video store rentals and library records and librarians were not allowed to tell anyone under pain of federal imprisonment. They picked up American citizens off American streets and sent them abroad to Arab interrogation centers where they were tortured. That is easy to find. There were lawsuits against the government about it. It is public record. Does that sound like the Gestapo, a Nazi organization? .
Both the Neocons and Nazis controlled the media. The Nazis controlled radio stations and newspapers. Their mobs broke into newspapers and ransacked them, beat up editors and destroyed their presses. They took over radio and Dr. Goebbels made regular broadcasts accusing the opposition of treasonous activities, and attacking the Jews and Catholics. And there were no rebuttals.
Today, the former head of the Republican Party heads up a Right Wing Fox News Channel that attacks the President relentlessly every day. Rush Limbaugh from his Right Wing-backed commentaries on more than a thousand stations, syndicated by his bosses, Right Wing propaganda specialists like Michael Savage, Sean Hannity, Michael Reagan, Laura Ingraham and Bill O’Reilly, and hundreds more are paid by huge corporations to spew endless lies and distortions so that even flights of angels could never have the time or ability to counter all of them.
90%…90%…or more…of talk radio is exclusively Right Wing propaganda. The Nazis controlled radio by simply killing or jailing anyone who disagreed. The Neocons are doing it by buying off or threatening people who object within the media…with a very small few exceptions. There are well-funded Right Wing organizations like Heritage Foundation and the Cato Institute that make no pretense to being impartial. They work for big corporations to put out propaganda that supports privatization of Social Security or reductions in Medicare or more wars or anti-union messages.
That is their job. But who is to say that they wouldn’t do it with guns and dogs and police if they could. They work against the people buy sending out false information on health care on global warming on the economy and on our security. A radio commentator paid for in the tens of millions a year tells the most outlandish lies about virtually every progressive politician, and who is there to debate him…even though some of what he says must be obviously false to even the dumbest, least educated listener. Why is someone like Rush Limbaugh worth $400 million when he is not the first or even the second most popular host on radio in many markets? Who is paying the bill? And why?
The Nazis used mobs to get their points across in an emotional, non rational way. They would send mobs of ex-military goons, the S. A., to meetings to break them up and beat up the participants. In 2000, it is now known that the Neocons sent large numbers of people to Miami with the objective of disrupting the re-count of the popular vote.
This gave cover to the Supreme Court, who cut off the vote counting and with Justice Scalia making the deciding vote, appointed George. W. Bush as President. Later, too late to affect the outcome, the final vote count showed Gore to have been the winner. Hitler brokered his Chancellorship in much the same way, having a fire set that burned down the Capitol building to make his point.
As a matter of objectivity, it should be pointed out that Scalia’s son worked for the 2000 Republican campaign and that Scalia is a duck-hunting buddy of Dick Cheney whom his vote elected to the Vice Presidency.
The Nazis were book burners and had Nazi youth movements. The Neocons work to prohibit the teaching of science, Darwinian principles of anthropology, because it conflicts with Fundamentalist Christian “theology.” All those who are vehemently against global warming just happen to be from the oil producing states and are big recipients of oil industry money.
The Nazis favored and ultimately practiced sterilization of those it did not want to continue in society. The Neocons withheld foreign aid funds to any country using birth control measures that might help control population growth of over-populated, starving countries. The Neocons contolled the FDA. The FDA would not authorize the sale of the “Plan B” contraceptive, a pill that a woman could take within forty-eight hours of sexual activity and not become pregnant. It is not about eugenics. It is about appeasing the Right Wing Fundamentalist Ecumenical Christian fanatics who vote so heavily and contribute so much to the Party.
The Nazis packed the courts with Nazi Party members. This resulted in “legally” sending men and women to concentration camps for one of any number of generally trumped-up offenses broadly designated as “treasonous.” The Neocons had members of the Right Wing Federalist Society attorneys review the Neocon credentials of Justice Department lawyers and U.S. Attorney appointees. Over 150 law school graduates of one Right Wing religious college and another that was not even totally accredited were hired by the Neocons because of their belief in the Party. During the 2004 political campaign Karl Rove tried to have U.S. Attorneys appointed by the Bush Administration investigate some Democratic political candidates in public to discredit them. When nine refused, they were fired.
This could go on for thousands of more words. The fact is that the Right Wing of the Conservative Party has so many totalitarian similarities to the Nazis, that it is both dismaying and alarming. We may have barely escaped with our freedoms intact. We should never let these liars and fanatics come to power again. Republicans, yes, have a great tradition in this country, but these are not Republicans. These are Neocons, the new more moderate form of Nazi ideology. The comparison is simple. They, like the Nazis, want complete and total political control to benefit the big corporations and their religious and racist members. ......
scary!!!.... think about it , before it's too late folks!

Imagine the movies used to brainwash Nazis!~

Leni Riefenstahl made movies to demonstrate for    Herr Hitler the super aryan race...
now the republiconazis used this totally unrelated    movie clip to instill the congressmen into destroying our government as Nazis did when they                         had the Reichstag building destroyed in a similar fashion to the Two Towers!

"In a conference meeting on Tuesday, House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) showed a scene from the film in which Doug MacRay, a bank robber played by Ben Affleck, asks his friend to participate in a violent revenge attack. It was an odd note to sound during a debt ceiling debate -- and more than that, it was an unusual way of fostering unity among the ranks.

On Wednesday, Affleck -- who wrote and directed "The Town" -- said that he too found the whole scenario a touch bizarre. And in a statement his spokesperson provided to The Huffington Post, he suggested that Republicans use a different one of his movies next time they need to whip votes. "
Boehner and Mconnel need pies in their face    the way Rupert Murdoch had a pie in his face!


and speaking of good movies!  "Lord Of the Rings"
"
Have you heard that Frodo failied and the neocons have the ring?
" In speaking out on the matter on the Senate floor on Wednesday, McCain read from a Wall Street Journal editorial offering a critical assessment of how some members of the Republican party have approached the pressing fiscal issue. Here's an excerpt of the piece concerning Angle:
The idea seems to be that if the House GOP refuses to raise the debt ceiling, a default crisis or gradual government shutdown will ensue, and the public will turn en masse against . . . Barack Obama. The Republican House that failed to raise the debt ceiling would somehow escape all blame. Then Democrats would have no choice but to pass a balanced-budget amendment and reform entitlements, and the tea-party Hobbits could return to Middle Earth having defeated Mordor.

a love letter to our earth from a cromagnon (who's not sure if he wants to associate with humans!)

words can be so dangerous, fear instilling catalysts for action... positive or negative...
... we are at the brink of an economic lemming tumbling down the cliffs...
I want us to   succeed as a race but we have to totally change our way of thinking before there is Armegeddon....   and our own terms with our god...our philosphy of surviving each day
I think that        we need to make a 10 step method of survival!! not necessarily prioritized!
( ibetter hurry with the 10 steps before Papa wants his puter back!) (now im back on my puter with the thick long white streak down the middle!)



1. see our life as a chess match and we might just see the future!
2. start thinking at least 3 steps ahead of the possible future
3.  start thinking of the way our young think and what they want of their very dangerous future
...even if there is no armegeddon,, there will be a mass amount of homo sapiens running over the metaphoric cliffs!).... devote our precious free moments to be with our future and they will pass on your concience  over future generations!
4. tighten our belts and learn to live a Spartan life with few material goods ...(the less plactics and landfill space that we leave our desc endants the better!)
5. get outside and ride your bike to work (something that will be good for our future children)
6. do one little thing for another human without expecting a return (play it forward)
(i ll think of some more later

on another note, every moment with my son is precious...   it is hard to have control of my family when 2/3rds of it is in the clutches of the inlaws...
but it's  at least peaceful that the other rug rats are on a cruise, while I don't have to struggle to even play with my child...

When will Obama say no to these Repub Rapists of our economy??

"WASHINGTON — A few days ago, former President Bill Clinton identified a constitutional escape hatch should President Obama and Congress fail to come to terms on a deficit reduction plan before the government hits its borrowing ceiling.

On Friday, Mr. Obama rejected the idea, though not in categorical terms.
"I have talked to my lawyers,” Mr. Obama said. “They are not persuaded that that is a winning argument.”

Adding another element of uncertainty, and possible court battles, to the debate do not seem to appeal to the White House. And it is, in any event, not clear that the nation’s creditors would continue to lend money to the United States were the president to take unilateral action.

The provision in question, Section 4 of the amendment, was meant to ensure the payment of Union debts after the Civil War and to disavow Confederate ones. But it was written in broader terms.

“The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payments of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion,” the critical sentence says, “shall not be questioned.”

The Supreme Court has said in passing that those words have outlived the historical moment that gave rise to them.

“While this provision was undoubtedly inspired by the desire to put beyond question the obligations of the government issued during the Civil War,” Chief Justice Charles Evans Hughes wrote for the court in 1935, “its language indicates a broader connotation.”

In recent weeks, law professors have been trying to puzzle out the meaning and relevance of the provision. Some have joined Mr. Clinton in saying it allows Mr. Obama to ignore the debt ceiling. Others say it applies only to Congress and only to outright default on existing debts. Still others say the president may do what he wants in an emergency, with or without the authority of the 14th Amendment.

The words of the provision are in important ways quite vague. “Nobody would argue,” said Sanford Levinson, a law professor at the University of Texas, “that Section 4 is clear in its meaning, other than at the time everyone thought that the South, if they ever got back in control, would not pay Civil War debt.”

But Jack M. Balkin, a law professor at Yale, said it was possible to infer a broader principle.
“You’re not supposed to hold the validity of the public debt hostage to achieve political ends,” Mr. Balkin said. He added, though, that “Section 4 is a fail-safe that only comes into operation when everything else is exhausted.”

Mr. Obama’s statement largely dismissing the possibility of invoking the provision may have had a strategic element to it. A deficit reduction deal would seem to be more likely, after all, if both sides thought there was no alternative but economic chaos.

Mr. Obama’s reference to “a winning argument” suggested the likelihood that the courts would weigh in if he took unilateral action. But that is not certain.

“This is not a circumstance,” said Laurence H. Tribe, a law professor at Harvard, “in which the courts have any plausible point of entry.”
Professor Balkin agreed. “This is largely a political question,” he said. “It is unlikely courts would decide these questions.”
Some law professors have put forward possible legal claims that might overcome threshold requirements for lawsuits, like the one in which plaintiffs show that they have been directly injured and so have standing to sue. “It’s unthinkable,” Professor Tribe responded, “that the courts would allow a gimmicky lawsuit to proceed.”

The president, moreover, can move quickly, but court cases take time. “At the point at which the economy is melting down, who cares what the Supreme Court is going to say?” Professor Balkin said. “It’s the president’s duty to save the Republic.”
Another possible reaction to unilateral action from Mr. Obama is impeachment. Professor Tribe said that was “not politically a very plausible scenario.”
Professor Levinson was less certain. Impeachment by the House of Representatives “seems to me quite likely.” But, he added, “it is also literally unimaginable that the Senate would convict.”

A third possible response is what some law professors call “popular constitutionalism.” The meaning of the Constitution, these professors say, is in the end what the public believes it to be. The president and members of Congress may thus pay a political price for taking stands at odds with what the public understands to be their constitutional obligations.     "

On a good note, while our country is going bankrupt, I had a beautiful afternoon with my son taking him swimming at the very large Fairfield Bay swimming pool!
Colin refused to wear his floaties and wanted to swim without them. He practiced swimming underwater as he pushed off from the pool ladder into my arms!

Republicon terrorism!

"A major factor in how the United States wound up in hock to the tune of $14.3 trillion is the so-called Global War on Terror, the American jihad under which all causes have been subsumed, while niggling things like facts, the constitution and strategic objectives have been relegated to irrelevance. So it seems a tad ironic that as they attempt to square the books, the same Republicans who have so eagerly prosecuted the war on terror, running up huge deficits in the process, are now behaving like the enemies on which they have squandered so much blood and treasure: They are acting like terrorists.".....

When will americans become wise to the fact that we our economy and country are getting fucked? (excuse the French)
When will bush and repubs be held accountable for starting these wars that are bankrupting this country??  They raised the debt ceiling without any problems 7 tiumes because congress was duped into believing these wars for oil were necessary??  (or was congress in the poc kets of these oil barons who want to get oil a buck a barrel and sell it at outrageous prices??)
  If there was a draft and these congressmens kids were overseas in this mess, we would have been outta there already!
Will Bush/Cheney and his croneys ever be held accountable??

The squatter in my home would never be held accountable unless we took him to court for justice!

it's sure nice to finally have a little vindication from a person of authority!
 it's nice to see when see someone that has no consequences for his unprofessional behaviors and poor  BUSINESS ETHICS  , finally get chewed out by the judge!

next step is getting paid to make the improvements that the previous squatter should have done...
the judge suggested even going further when he saw the pictures of unfinished work that should have taken care of over a year ago!
Judge Judy couldn't have put  this bloke in his place any better!   Hallelujah! Praise the Lord for justice!

Fox News is just entertainment for right-wing rednecks

"Rupert Murdoch is emperor of the Fox News world empire.
I am glad that the public is now seeing that Fox News is just entertainment. For years just a few people knew that Fox News is entertainment. But now people are seeing that it is not focusing on the real stuff. If we could get rid of Fox News, life would get closer to making sense. Next we need to get rid of neo-cons. Just think about it, America was founded by democrats. Fox News bashes democrats and even supports republicans! When you compare CNN or MSNBC to Fox News you would see a difference. CNN focuses on fair game, Fox News just says something bad will happen when a democrat wins. But all we can say at Escape the Okie Zone's Escape Zone is that sometime in the future Fox News is going to come to a close or face a major downfall."

this is from a good friend from one of the next generations!... our future after our generation is gone or taking liquids from a nurse, before we eventually part this earth...at least as a thinking entity (unless there's another place for our souls.. God only knows!
I'm hoping that the downfall will come sooner than later.. it is scary that one person that runs this media conglomerate could have done so much damage to the world... Bush would never have been able to get by with stealing the elections twice... and this whole Republican movement to destroy the govt as we know it and put it into the hands of a few powerfully rich people@!

Garvald Inn- from the little village where my great grandfather grew up before migrating to Oz before the Civil War.
I am so happy that we were able to take a break from all the relatives and have my family back for a couple of days at the Lawrence Welk resort... and splash around a little in this Splash a torium with my family!
My son is becoming so much more confident in the water jumping into the deep water with his little floaties on his arms! I bought him goggles and he was discovering what it's like looking underwater!

"Cockeyed optimist"



want us to solve the budget crisis? stop the wars and give peace a chance!
it might actually work!!
one of my regular(?) readers perhaps did a search for "Cockeyed Optimist definition"
and for some reason this page showed up from over a year ago..time is flying by so rapidly..it just seemed a few months ago...
I need to look at where I was at at that point (after my home almost burned down) and then just look reflectively at where I'm at in my relationship, and how I seem to lose control of my family
 my son just becomes more and more attached to his best friend/cousin...
and I feel like I'm losing my connections with him...but then there are moments when I feel so close to him...
he wants to see me off everytime I even go bicycling...so I know he still loves me!
"this is the life that I have often envisioned...or possibly even dreamed of...
of course it's not the same or quite as good as this future utopian dream...

there are many obstacles to this simple life..it could even be a hippy (sans hair) life style with no cars in this little community..but alas, there is Hedges Ave., where one has more danger of getting run over on this one way street down Millionaires' beach, than being eaten by sharks...
(even the 10 foot one that caught a few waves with us the other day!)"

Why do the poor in the Okie Zone stubbornly vote Republicon?

"Orrin Hatch: The 'Poor' Should Do More To Shrink Debt, Not The Rich "
WASHINGTON -- Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) voted against beginning debate on a measure that would have the Senate declare the rich should share the pain of debt reduction Thursday, a day after arguing that it's the poor and middle class who need to do more.
Let them eat cake! get a job~!
"I hear how they're so caring for the poor and so forth," Hatch said in remarks on the Senate floor Wednesday, in reference to Democrats. "The poor need jobs! And they also need to share some of the responsibility."
Hatch's comments were aimed at a motion that passed 74 to 22 to start debating a non-binding resolution that says millionaires and billionaires should play a more meaningful role in reducing the nation's debt.
Just one Democrat, Sen. Ben Nelson (D-Neb.), voted against having the debate. Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.), who had previously called the resolution "rather pathetic," nevertheless voted to move ahead on it.
But it was Hatch whose remarks Wednesday raised the idea that the wealthy are already doing too much, even as the nation's effective tax rates are at modern lows since the Bush administration slashed rates in 2001 and 2003. In his view, it seems, the middle class and poor should be picking up the slack.
"The top 1 percent of the so-called wealthy pay 38 percent of all income tax. The top 10 percent are paying 70 percent of all income tax," Hatch said. "The top 50 percent pay somewhere near 98 percent of all income taxes. 51 percent don't pay anything," Hatch said, suggesting the payroll taxes that the poor and middle classes pay towards Social Security yields them an especially generous benefit.
"Democrats say they [the 51 percent] pay payroll taxes. Well, everybody does that because that's Social Security. They pay about one-third of what they're going to take out over the years in social security," Hatch railed. "Obamacare -- a family of four earning over $80,000 a year -- gets subsidies. Think about that. That's what we call the poor?"
Hatch hedged that the the poorest of the poor shouldn't have to pay taxes. But he was clear that people who qualify for subsidies because they can't afford things like health care should dig deeper.
"Now, we don't want the really poor people who are in poverty to have to pay income taxes," he said. "But 51% of all households. And that's going up, by the way, because of our friend down in the White House and his allies."

it is very sad that this poor state of Oklahoma stubbornly votes 2/3rds of their vote for the party that continues to be obviously for the very rich !
Why do they continue to exhibit this behavior?
Possible reasons?
1. Republican are all about the rights of the unborn child
(but who cares about the baby after its born..ie..many children in this state lack health care at health insurance won't cover children with preexisting conditions.
2. Republicans love guns.
3. Republicans love war as long as it's in a foreign country.
4.  Republicans hate gays. Being a homosexual is a sin and is unChristian!
5.  Fox news and Rush love Republicans and folks in Oklahoma love Fox News and Rush Limbaugh!
6. Republicons love being rich and the poor in this state would love to be rich!
7. The Daily Oklahoman tells people to vote for Republicons on front page editiorials, so they do!

I have to follow through with so many things in my life!
why worry, be happy! the best revenge!
for now, my focus should be about getting money back for the work that the builder refused to do , especially when I paid him a year ago!
along with staying in a nice home for free!
reminds me about another situation of getting f....cked but I'm not supposed to talk about it!
"The ammunition of the culture wars presently waging in America is words. George Santayana was not wrong when he noted "Words are weapons, and it is dangerous . . . to borrow them from the arsenal of the enemy." The Republican Party, aided and abetted by the powerful AM talk radio conservatives, has found the most useful and efficient word of all in its arsenal–the word "liberal." Call someone a liberal, and you are able to instantly invalidate everything that person says, and worse to invalidate that person. Call a person you don't agree with a liberal, and whatever evidence is brought to light in a reasonable discussion is reduced to meaninglessness. The word "liberal" is a word that is used to deflate any argument based on reason. It is a word used to shut down any dissent. It is a word with the intent to isolate, sublimate, scapegoat, and group so-called undesirables who do not "tow the line," and it is a political tactic used by the right to marginalize the politically and religiously moderate who do not necessarily agree with the prevailing opinions of the political far right, and religious far right. It is a word the minority right wing "culture warriors" use that has effectively controlled the largest voting population of America–the moderates. And the moderates, up to this point, have been powerless to effectively resist the constant barrage of attacks from AM talk radio conservative "shock jocks" like Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Glen Beck, Michael Savage, and Neil Boortz. The current use and meaning of the word "liberal" as used by all of these AM talk radio conservative talk jocks as well as Ann Coulter is now synonymous with the words "enemy of the state" and "traitor" (and unbelievably, the words Communist and Socialist, now linked erroneously with Democrats and "liberals" are back in full force as these twisted celebrity conservatives now wave the "Red Scare" flag that has been retired since McCarthy was publicly humiliated and since the Soviet Union fell). As reasonable and conscientious people wonder how this war began, and why the far right wishes to scapegoat those who do not agree with them, it behooves those who are possessed of an inquiring mind to know exactly how this one word continues to inflame, scapegoat and perpetuate the culture wars, and how this one word will drive us to the brink of civil war if reasonable voices do not prevail. Let us then investigate the etymology of this word "liberal."
To start, we will root this discussion in what the word "liberal" means from a political context. The Oxford Compact English Dictionary notes that the origin of the word comes from the Latin liberalis, meaning "generous, courteous, gentlemanly." The rest of the definition is as follows:
liberal (adj.) 1. Willing to respect and accept behaviour or opinions different from one's own. 2. (of a society, law, etc.) favourable to individual rights and freedoms. 3. (in politics) favouring individual liberty, free trade, and moderate reform.
The word liberal, from this definition, infers a benign person or group who tolerates all viewpoints. It is a word that supports capitalism, and free trade. It infers being educated, and being willing to be educated. It is not a word that is owned by any particular political group. Teddy Roosevelt was a Republican and a liberal, having made a priority of setting up the American national park system. Abraham Lincoln was a progressive, liberal Republican who died for freeing the slaves, and having to wage war with the South so that they would not be allowed to tear this United States apart.      "
You actually feel the hatred towards liberals in oklahoma , where it's a dirty word!
 and people here love Fox News and actually believe this station is telling the truth!

I have to keep an open mind about things and start saying to myself...
Hey maybe, we are blessed??
and then telling my wife, if I was a believer, I would believe our family is blessed...
my stepson has a chance to live with his basketball coach (who's an ex-navy seal)...
this would be the best thing for getting a little discipline , which has been lacking in his life
and of course , my life, except for my many summers of leading canoe trips through Algonquin Park in Ontario, Canada!

wow!!... another summer ground hog month.... with my usual challenges each summer with  our mutual anchor in the Okie Zone... and what to do??
 Ill build a shack right here with a place for my boat
cuz I was storing it in the garage until somebody sed I caint !
Charles wants me to live here... well for a little while,
while the squatter still keeps his refrigerators
in a hostile neighbors' garage....
so he comes by expecting to pick up his shit that he left on purpose and a cheap digital wall clock!
just curious to see his old home where he stayed for free...(so he does the bathroom
and kitchen (claiming it to be granite counters!)..and my friend pointed out to him that it was formica!)
fortunately,   a  reputable builder  actually helped me to clean up his mess and fix the 4 doors he fucked up and the unfinished bathrooms, cabinets and closets, noting again  his overall unprofessional work,
was there to bounce him off my property finally!
and it was funny to see him run off with his tail between his legs...seeing his Mark told him off about his poor unfinished work...
"How do you like the shoe being on the other foot?" 
my friend understood how difficult it was for me to even go inside my own home@! (when I wrote to say I wanted to see my home or show it to a prospective customer, he often refused my access unless a cop was present!)
Hey where can I find a lid for the toilet tank?
by the way, I got a great view at my  new place!
 So after being refused entrance, the squatter went next door and took a Dr. Pepper from one of his frigerators left behind next  door.!..
amazing how come folks can manipulate others so well! speaking of manipulating people (suckers),
he reminds me of the Jesus look alike from the Peace Corp, who temporarily took over the town of Tohatchi when I was teaching there!
....I'm slowly learning how to stay away from these socially manipulative scheisters! and how to pick them out before they get started in doing their damage!
 but I'm sure they'll have some barbecue for  this deposed   chairman of 83rd street...before picks up the frigs plugged into the neighbor's electricity....Imagine the monthly bill for 2 frigs running full blast in a 110 degree garage??? over a $100??
Buffy,what are we gonna do with our home?
and just think about the amount that he's paying a lawyer to avoid the 4800$ bill for the work that was not even started on the shed and guttering!
and to stay way beyond his welcome in my home
  not working or paying the money he owes!!
 The legal fees would have probably paid for a brand new 12 by 12 shed  built by a competent builder, who actually knows carpentry and how to fix doors and cabinets!

 I'm realizing how great it is for a friend to come in need, but from way out of the Okie Zone!        He and LA have been taking  care of my Buffy !  Buffy is with a beautiful family and she's so well loved!

Well I decided to try a new theme for this blog… Sometimes I’m amazed at all the posts that I’ve written over the years and comes up 2000s...
