Best President Ever

All people of African Heritage in the USA were burdeoned, by law, as being classified as sub-human throughout the USA at the birth of our country.
The first person to arise from that desolate plot to the leadership of our country must be the best we can offer.

All of Human Philosophy and Spirituality in one Prayer-

Dear God in Heaven,
Hallowed be thy name.
Thy Kingdom come thy Will be done,
on Earth as it is in Heaven.
Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.
Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil...
For thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory, forever and ever amen.

The USA Can Change

When the United States of America was founded we were the most democratic nation in the history of the world. Change.
When we ended slavery we were the first major power on earth to do so. Change.
When the USA gave voting rights to all races and sexes, we were first. Change.
The USA has had ups and downs but has always led the way.
After our tragedy of aggression in the Iraq War we elected the first president of a world power of African decent. And this president ran on one issue, CHANGE.
And the USA has changed.
And we will continue to do so and we will continue to better ourselves and better the world through change.

The Demise of the Good Cop. An American Tragedy

The tragedy is that since the Drug War started under President Nixon the police have been forced, by law, to enforce laws that the general public despises because they lead to massive prison sentences for non-violent crimes.
And too, after the massive tax cuts for the rich under President Reagan the Police have been forced to become 'Revenue Generators' arresting people for small traffic infractions and charging many times more in fines than ever before.
This has lead to Police being hated and in turn hating the populace they 'serve'. That leads to a situation where only anti-social/mean people are the main ones attracted to police work...and we see the results. 
I have spoken with many southern Black folks of my age (60) who remember things as I do, which is, that despite our progress on race laws, the end result of our drug laws and our 'Police as revenue officers' has made life harder and more violent for all of us.
In 1972 the Prison Population in the USA was 300,000. In 2014 it reached 2,300,000. While our population increased 50% our prison population increased 666%!

Halophytes save California!

The answer to drought is to use plants that grow with saltwater. These can be decorative or grown as crops for biofuels. California should start building a saltwater irrigation system and plant these plants in the desert. If enough square miles of desert are greened in this fashion it could even lead to the creation of rain storms in the desert as the saltwater is evaporated into the atmosphere and desalinated into rain.

Fox Fakes Birgdahl Story

Shoddy reporting this AM about the Birgdahl swap...Have reporters forgotten that no one is guilty until they have a fair trial? Neither Birgdahl or those traded for him have had a trial. And the 5 from Guantanimo who were traded had been held for 12 years without trial which is against international law, and Birgdahl was a POW for 5 years. Tragic how Fox Fakes the news.

Republican Treason Israeli Spys

READ ALL ABOUT IT! Netanyahu had to know and should be impeached along with any American lawmakers who knew they were illegally accessing top secret information.
Washington Post-Israel obtained sensitive information about the nuclear talks between Iran and the United States and turned it over to members of Congress, the Wall Street Journal is reporting. The insider details came from “confidential” briefings from U.S. officials as well as from “informants, diplomatic contacts in Europe and eavesdropping,” the paper said.
Citing “current and former officials,” the paper said the “spying operation was part of a broader campaign by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s government to penetrate the negotiations and then help build a case against the emerging terms of the deal.”
The Journal, in its Tuesday edition, reported the “espionage” did not concern the White House “as much as Israel’s sharing of inside information with U.S. lawmakers and others to drain support” for a possible deal with Iran to rein in Tehran’s nuclear program in exchange for easing of international sanctions.
The White House learned of the operation, the paper reported, when U.S. intelligence agencies “intercepted communications among Israeli officials that carried details the U.S. believed could have come only from access to the confidential talks, officials briefed on the matter said.”
Israel denied the charges, according to the Journal, which quoted a “senior official” in Netanyahu’s office calling the allegations “utterly false.”
But the Journal said its story was based on interviews with “more than a dozen” officials, including Israeli diplomats, intelligence officials and lawmakers.

No Respect for the USA From Israel!

I am so sick of this bullying and self rightousness from an Israeli people who have no GRATITUDE or RESPECT for the countless thousands of Americans who died to save the Jewish people! I almost wish that Netanyahu would be stupid enough to attack Iran, in which case much of Israel would be destroyed, but finally the UN would take over governing the Holy Lands in place of the Jewish Fascists in charge now. Just in the same manner that some victims of abuse turn into abusers themselves, so has the Israeli government adopted Nazi tactics. Tragic.

Will israel follow Netanyahu to its grave?

Iran could easily wipe Israel off the map right now if they wanted to. Many people are clueless about military strategies and capabilities. There is no Iron Dome over Israel that could stop even half of any potential missile or jet attacks from Iran. This equation leaves out the fact that Iraq and Syria and Jordan and Libya and Egypt would all join in against Israel if Netayahu attacks Iran.

If Netanyahu attacks Iran the world will watch Israel burn.


Israel is trying to start WWII by starting a war with Iran, because psychotic Zionists and Fundamentalist Christians believe it is necessary for their WORLD DOMINATION. BYE BYE ISRAEL!

The Night I Saw the Sex Pistols in San Antonio-1978 Randy's Rodeo

I was a 20 year old 'news junkie' and flailing student and future Track athlete at Schreiner Jr. College in Kerrville TX.

For about ten days I saw stories about 'The Sex Pistols' on the nightly national news having riotous shows in England. Then one day, as I'm listening to the main Rock Station from San Antonio I hear an ad saying...'The Sex Pistols are playing Randy's Rodeo $2.50 at the door.'
That is a fact, that was the ad and that is what they charged at the door to a 2000 plus Country Dancehall to see the Sex Pistols 'Play'/Defend themselves.

I had one friend in Kerrville Texas (60 miles from San Antonio) who 'might' go to this show with me and I wanted some back-up for this operation. Brian Falteen was and is a hard assed Liberal Tough guy (see Hunter S Thompson) who I'd met in Theater Class and who emulated Elton John in his piano virtuosity....I thought 'OK'.

"The Sex Pistols are nothing more than sewer rats with guitars" said BF as he entered my car and we set off for the long drive to the big city and the redneck showdown. Oh shit I thought when he said that and I was right. All the way there he said that same quote..."The Sex Pistols are nothing more than sewer rats with guitars".

When we entered the parking lot to the big 'kicker dancing' joint, it was packed. And it was all trucks with shotguns hanging in the back windshields. We went in and it was the same. Angry Drunk Cowboys. I honestly thought I would  see somebody shot that night. Thankfully I did not.

My 'companion/enemy/friend Brian Falteen began gathering up 'empties' into a pile which he would later throw at Sid Vicious and subsequently be booted from the club and famously interviewed by People magazine.

After the riot, not a show but a riot as the crowd was at the door leaving...johnny Rotten came out on to the stage alone and clenching bills in his hand and said "We got your two fifty we got your texas two fifty!

Brian and i had a nice QUIET ride home.
