Brimstone Corner of
30 May 2015
Think about FIFA, the
Internationale de Football Association,
and ask yourself why its corruption surprises anyone.
It’s sports, money ball, part of the
international institution that has couch potatoes suffering people like
Vick and Rice and Simpson and Brady for the sake of their ignorant
It’s normal humanity, worshiping mammon
by way of betting pools in bars, ordinary popular hypocrisy.
The question is why it’s
popular, and part of the answer is that identifying with “winners” is a
way of feeling better about our miserable selves, however cheap and
But another part is that mass media
take advantage of that cheapness and phoniness by promoting more of it
to help them sell advertising to other cheap phony beggars.
And the cheapness stops when they
deploy such ploys to foster wars in the name of religion.
Remember the Kingston Trio.
They, in the sixties, when other
folksingers were protesting war, protested a ploy to increase mass
transit revenue in Boston by assessing fares not only to ride but to
stop riding, and now Boston is capitalizing on that by naming its
electronic fare cards for that song.
Questions in that are how audacious
that is and how ignorant the people in that bastion of “liberalism” must
be to suffer it.
Justice rolling over
29 May 2015
United States media and
government financial pundits are saying that China’s capitalism they
call communism is failing now.
I own shares of MCDFX and BRSFX, a
mutual fund of large cap China stock and a mutual fund of small cap
United States stock, and so far this year my MCDFX investment has
appreciated at a rate that annualizes at nearly 75 percent while my
BRSFX investment has been stagnant.
But, of course, xenophobic “patriots”
denying the inevitability of global sharing will argue that China is
cheating by retaliating in kind against the xenophobes’ futile
Money-mongering works on the
sports model as sports work on the war model.
The Tea Party says it’s fiscally
conservative, but it promotes protectionism against other nations while
promoting free trade domestically, and it named itself for the Boston
The Boston Tea Party was a retaliation
against transoceanic protectionism.
It’s like Las Vegas trying to
keep poor black folks out of New Orleans’ French Quarter.

The Stolen Valor Act is
legislation the second President Bush signed to criminalize faking war
The Supreme Court declared it in
contravention of the First Amendment, and now we have Lindsey Graham
calling his having been an Air Force lawyer credentials for deciding to
put “boots on the ground,” earning himself not credentials but the swift
boat boot from presidential candidacy Coward Kerry earned.
But we can be sure that
Republicans who rationalize against him during the primary debates will
rationalize for him in the general election if he out rationalizes their
rationalization in the primary elections.
The whole mess is part of the media
nonsense that presents Putin’s sex life as relevant to world peace while
presenting Clinton’s sex life as irrelevant to anything.
Our mass media treat the film
The Interview as fact.
So consider the relevance of
Pickpocketing is ordinary on the Eiffel
Tower, and Africans congregate on the steps to the Basilica of the
Sacred Heart to charge tourists for admission to it, and tourists can
see the basilica from the tower.
Response to that, typical of the mass
media fictional farce, might be saying that Africans are in cahoots with
ISIS because the basilica’s towers resemble minarets of mosques.
Cashing in on common
27 May 2015
Pundits promoting the increase
to $15.00 per hour of the minimum wage in the City of Angels are saying
our economy needs it to give people money to spend on the economy.
Obviously that argues for paying Peter
to pay Paul to pay Peter to pay Paul to pay Peter, exactly the cycle
that created the “great recession” by letting people borrow cash they
couldn’t repay, piling mortgages onto credit cards and student loans.
I, a rational investor, have bought
four homes since 2001 and sold the first three for more than I paid.
I bought the first by a fixed rate
So I had cash for the rest.
Contrast that to the previous
owner of the home I now own.
In 2006 he paid $115,000 for it, and in
2012 he let it go into foreclosure while he owed more than $80,000 on
the mortgage, leaving me to buy it from the bank for $37,000 in 2013.
People say I’m lucky, but fact is that
any of them could do what I did, through remembering the sixth grade.
Lucky are the affluent people
arguing against basic arithmetic and simple semantics.
Hobby horse losers
26 May 2015
ISIS’ claim that it will use
funds from the oil it controls to buy a nuclear weapon from Pakistan is
one more indication that it’s a Mossad counter-intelligence operation.
And United States media and government
pundits have swallowed that hogwash and are spewing it onto Obama with a
fish hook they call Islam. The only entity whose interests driving
another wedge between the United States and Pakistan will serve is
The “revelations” of “bin
Laden’s bookshelf” are only more hogwash.
Pundits, the ones still ignoring
conspicuous evidence that bin Laden died of kidney failure long before
the Abbottabad hoax, are of course swallowing that hoax.
And they’re saying that the claim that
he had books about the United States and recommended attacking the
United States instead of Arab nations indicates a “fixation” with the
Any rational military strategist

Semites pit us against Arab Semites.

that Obama has swallowed neither the hook nor the hogwash.
And we could well pray that Lindsey
Graham, who has swallowed the hogwash and the hook and the line and the
sinker and is trying to sink the whole world with himself, not be
President of the United States.
He’s correct in saying we desperately
need to defeat ISIS, but he’s ignoring who ISIS obviously is, the
What aren’t we talking
25 May 2015
The FBI is now charging wacko
kids falling for Mossad’s ISIS counter-intelligence with “attempting to
provide material support to terrorists.”
One problem is the ability of proving
intent, and another is defining the terms “material” and “support,”
making the charge “virtually” meaningless.
Law in the land of the land of the free
is growing as goofy as the dufus diction of the ratings of the Motion
Picture Association of America.
Cackle Clinton, by dodging
questions, is setting herself up for a fall, because every question she
refrains from answering will be a weapon against her in the debates, and
she’s letting the volley of them grow into a barrage.
And that’s in addition to the facts
that people tend to fear the unknown and that she’s proven that she’s
inept at debating.
And supporting her already requires
ignorantly emulating her defiance of democracy.
Visiting Paris last year
reminded me of visiting Tangier a few years earlier, partly because the
primary language of both cities is French and partly because Tangier is
famous for thieves, and the Eiffel Tower’s public address system warned
its visitors of pickpockets.
And now United States mass media are
reporting that Eiffel Tower employees are striking for the welfare of
Here we only strike for our welfare.
Freakish fickle fate

Compare that romantic debacle to Jewish

Famous feminist Gloria Steinem
is one woman among many marching from South Korea to North Korea, across
the demilitarized zone between those two nations, for peace.
Many women’s rights activists are
fighting for the right to be as militant as men while those women are
marching against militancy.
Think about the word “distaff,”
referring to the female side of marriages, and hope for fewer sticks and
But, meanwhile, we have Heehaw Hillary, who stood by Bubba
Bill’s destroying the career of a female intern by failing to preside
over his own fly, seeking to preside over the government of the United
States, his job when he did it.
And they’re of the party of the Camelot Kennedys.
22 May 2015
Heehaw Hillary isn’t a
statesperson but plays one on TV.
Tuesday, responding to people pointing
out that she avoids questions, spent about five minutes replying to
about five questions.
One person asked her whether she
intends to continue associating with corrupt politicians, and she
replied that she has a lot of friends and intends to continue
associating with her old friends, essentially defining “cronyism.”
And another person pointed out State Department decisions
favoring people who contributed funds to the Clinton Foundation while
she was Secretary of State, and she replied to that by saying that she
wishes that the State Department would make her e-mails available to
Congress sooner than it is, raising the question of whether Mossad named
ISIS in honor of Bubba Bill’s questioning what is is.
Crosby, Stills and Nash, in the era during which Bubba
Bill said he smoked dope but didn’t inhale, recorded the song “Marrakech
Express” referring to charming cobras in the square, in the capital of
the first nation to accept that the United States are a nation.
21 May 2015
Media and government pundits who a few months ago said al
Qaeda and ISIS are rivals are now saying someone they say is an al Qaeda
leader is the person who most probably will replace the ISIS leader they
say Delta Force killed Friday.
And such pundits also say ISIS
is masterfully using “social media” to promote itself, while they ask
how ISIS can be so masterful, but ignore the obvious answer.
ISIS is a Mossad counter-intelligence
operation that has mass media masters from Spielberg to Zuckerberg on
And consider also Jane and Sidney and

Falling among thorns
20 May 2015
The Diaspora is the spread of
Judaism beyond the land Judaic people say God promised them.
When Muslims took that land from them,
many of them emigrated to Antwerp when it was Europe’s banking center,
and dominated its diamond trade.
When Nazis persecuted them in Antwerp,
many of them emigrated to the financial center of the United States,
where they continue to dominate Manhattan’s diamond trade.
Since then, much of Manhattan’s
diamond trade has moved from Wall Street uptown, near Times Square.
And Judaism is more evident there, in
what people all over Earth now call the Diamond District, than it is in
But Judaic worship of Mammon remains
prominent in both banking and commodities markets all over Earth.
The Qur’an directs worshiping
the god of Abraham but differs from the Torah in that it proscribes
The Torah proscribes coveting several
commodities but doesn’t list
or buying power.
But both the Qur’an and the Torah call
women a commodity.
The distaff side
19 May 2015
ISIS “oil emir” Abu Sayyaf said,
before U.S. Delta Force commandos killed him while trying to capture him
Friday, that Islam has never been a peaceful religion.
That assertion denies the Qur’an and
slanders Muhammad, and so it’s one more piece of evidence that ISIS is a
Mossad counter-intelligence operation, not an Islamic state.
Moreover, mass media are saying the
commandos captured his wife, for intelligence.
The Qur’an promotes protecting
women, and Muhammad’s wife set him up in her father’s international
trade business, but most U.S. pundits say Muslims say women are
The people who shot Malala didn’t do it
because she is a girl trying to learn but because they were men trying
not to learn.
Malala is Islamic while people like Abu
Sayyaf and Mossad and U.S. government and media pundits ignore Islam.
And the Torah says Israel has
been bellicose since before he left his mother’s womb.
And we should ask why, while Christians
are more than a third of humanity and call Jesus God and the prince of
peace and claim to believe in him, humanity is perpetually at war in the
name of God.
If the Gospels are correct, and “people
of faith” have faith as a grain of mustard seed, all the problems of
humanity are their own damned fault.
Fate and wind
18 May 2015
How can anyone claiming to
believe in Jesus promote “capital punishment?”
And how can anyone believing in eternal
life believe in death or call it a penalty?
And why did the Associated Press
telephone Tsarnaev’s father to tell him such people would kill him?
But religion is replete with
The Qur’an says that God is merciful
and condones killing only in self-defense, but in the two centuries
immediately following Muhammad’s delivering it Muslims rampaged from
Mecca to Austria, to kill for land as do Christians and Jews.
And consider the argument for war in
the Bhagavad Gita.
The Bhagavad Gita, the Hindu
song of God, says that we shouldn’t have a problem with killing, because
God eventually kills everyone, and creates some of us to help him.
Jesus called Pharisees like Saul of
Why did Christians crusade?
Dividing our houses
17 May 2015
Whether or not race is a factor
in culture, culture is a factor in raising children to be adults, and
the culture surrounding families may not be the culture of the family.
So we have European Americans joining
African American gangs and Islamic children joining Christian churches.
But that blending of cultures is
infrequent where we have ghettos.
The South African European
African government instigated civil war by forcing African Africans to
live in ghettos it called homelands.
They were like what the United States’
government calls reservations and what the Israeli government calls
But Africans had learned from Europeans
since their kidnapping and enslaving them.
Now, in the homeland three
religions call holy, the opposite of all that is true.
The United States promoted Israelis’
right to create a ghetto for themselves and call it a state.
So we have a civil war between the
people who live in that land but outside the ghetto and the people in
the ghetto with the United States supporting the ghetto people.
And are you a brute?

Obama is criticizing Fox News

If Obama’s criticism is irrational the

“My shoes?” a survivor of the
Amtrak 188 crash said, “They’re not my shoes.
A lady gave me her shoes.”
That showed her appreciation of a woman
who wished to help in any way she could and probably felt bad about
finding nothing more to do.
Now contrast that with the politicians
using that crash on their corridor of power to promote their grandiose
pretentions, and with other survivors of the crash, pandering self-pity.
Partisanship rots government,
and mass media pass it on to the people, rotting them.
We the people of the United States are
the wealthiest people on Earth while complaining more than any other
people on Earth.
And, while other people struggle to
solve their problems, we the people watch TV.
We’re heading the way of Rome.

The Torah says Israel’s aggression and greed began before
he left Rebekah’s womb.
A difference between Judaism and Islam is that the Torah
says God directed killing for land, while the Qur’an says God directed
killing only in defense against such as that, and that’s the difference
between crusading and jihad.
Truman descended from German
He declared Irgun terrorist, but later
he pushed the United Nations to declare Israel a nation with Irgun
leading it, after Begin led Irgun to bomb the King David Hotel.

14 May 2015
Blaming African Americans for
drug addiction is like blaming Cherokees for drunkenness.
And blaming Palestinians for trying to
defend themselves against Israelis is like blaming Apaches for trying to
defend themselves against European Americans.
The longest-lasting state-sponsored
effort at genocide is the one by the United States against the natives
of the continent European Americans named North America.
In New Orleans, in the French Quarter
in a bar whose attorney owner calls the Abbey, I met a drunken drug
addict Sioux prostitute.
We the people call her Suzy.
And the United States government
“gave” survivors of that genocide land for which European Americans
found no use and forced them to live in those refugee camps we call
And now the United States government is
“helping” them by letting them have gambling casinos and paying them to
store nuclear waste on those “reservations.”
And “liberal” European Americans ignore
all that in defense of abortion.
The European American who sold
me my ticket to see Mt. Rushmore recommended that next I see a national
park memorializing Custer.
I ignored his recommendation and drove
on to Sioux Falls before stopping for the night.
I saw no park for Sitting Bull.
13 May 2015
Football is why I left New
Orleans the last time.
The first time I left was to take care
of a family situation in Colorado, and the second time I left was
because I was having too much fun in the
joie de vivre of the French
Quarter, but the third time was because the corrupt politicians had sold
the Quarter to Las Vegas.
My main problem with Katrina was that
Las Vegas bought the Saints the Super Bowl to attract back gambling
A result was that the Quarter is
now mostly one big sports bar with poker machine, and a result of that
is the attrition of my friends, with their
joie de vivre.
Ruthie the Duck Lady died during one of
my absences, and Uncle Lionel and Coco Robicheaux died during my last
stay there, and no one’s replacing them.
And, when Coco died, the money
mongering creeps diverted his second line funeral away from the Quarter.
And Las Vegas “cleaned up”
Bourbon Street by replacing its strip joints with “gentlemen’s clubs.”
Before that, hardly anyone, neither
tourists nor residents, took Bourbon Street seriously, but now they
Tourists are killing prostitutes, and
taking their commercial degeneracy to bars off Bourbon Street, where

Burning the phoenix
12 May 2015
Sunday morning the American
Broadcast Company said on its show This Week that ISIS is using “social
media” to urge people to kill Americans “wherever you find them.”
The Qur’an proscribes killing humans
for any purpose other than defense of Muslims’ homes, and that phrase is
a reply to Islamic reluctance to kill in mosques, for any purpose.
But the craziest part of that ABC story
is in how few Americans would hear ISIS urging, if cable and broadcast
television networks didn’t tell them, calling it news.
“Find God’s match for you,” says
ChristianMingle.com on television, to suck cash from Christians and
But that’s little different from
selling “indulgences,” or from cash fat medieval people paying artists
to violate the Second Commandment by depicting them with saints and
paying priests to display those images in churches!
How Christian is honoring John, if he
had his mother beg Jesus for a throne, in heaven?
Look at the violation of the
Second Commandment on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel in the Vatican,
the fortress of the Roman Catholic Church of the Pharisee Saul of
Tarsus, the Roman Catholic Church.
Michelangelo didn’t depict God and Adam
extending middle fingers to each other.

The New England Patriots are
patriotic as the New Orleans Saints are saintly.
So a question patriotic or saintly
people might well ask is why anyone cares how full of wind a football
People who care are like those who hung
a Saints flag over the banner of the statue of Johanne of Domremy at the
French Market, as though Johanne’s banner didn’t display
fleurs de lis centuries before
football, to consider the lilies of the field.
Patriots might more
appropriately honor the United States’ independence from England than
call their homeland a new England.
And Don McLean should have learned the
purpose of a levee instead of complaining in his song “American Pie”
that one was dry.
Patriots eat apple pie as saints eat
Mark Twain said that Johanne of
Domremy, whom the Roman Catholic Church calls a saint after murdering
her for defending her homeland from a nation that calls her Joan, the
epitome of patriotism.
Fiction and focus
10 May 2015
Media and government pundits
continue to blame Islam for ISIS inspiring wackos, radicalizing already
radical people, etc.
The only difference between the nutcase
who emulated the Batman Joker character and murdered people in a movie
theatre and the nutcases emulating ISIS is that more ISIS emulation
exists because ISIS receives more media coverage.
Religion and ideology are irrelevant to
homicidal maniacs, and also irrelevant to yahoos who misrepresent the
Qur’an or the Bible, for any purpose.
And another example of media and
government pundits missing the point is CNN calling Bimbo Banfield’s
absurdity the Legal View.
Now she’s said that success of Marilyn
Mosby’s effort to prosecute the murderous police in Baltimore depends on
whether the knife Freddie Gray had in his pocket was legal.
She said that, if the knife
illegal, the police had “probable cause” to arrest him, ignoring the
question of whether they had probable cause to confront him when they
did, to chase him down and knock him down, to search and arrest him, to
The town where I most often

It’s also an illegal drug hub for three
states and has more bars per capita than any city I’ve visited outside
New Orleans and Las Vegas, and it lost 14% of its population between the
last two censuses, and 90% of its African American population.
And its City Council blocked placing a
homeless shelter with drug rehabilitation services in its bankrupt drug
hub central business district.
How can ISIS inspire
9 May 2015
One indication that the Pharisee
Saul of Tarsus was unrepentant and directed the writing of the Gospels
is the many instances in them of Jesus contradicting himself.
The most egregious example may be the
assertion that he said he came not to bring peace but to bring a sword
while his preaching turning the other cheek and healing the chief
priest’s servant’s ear and reprimanding Peter for cutting it with a
sword are more indicative of most of what the Gospels say he said.
Of course a problem with those
contradictions is that people can pick whatever agrees with their own

Imagine what Europeans must think of

Anyone in Europe can travel as freely

between Indian and Michigan while we call the French xenophobic.

expands the mind but waived extradition to let the United States’
narcotics attaché to Afghanistan return him to prison in California.

Why do Jews and Christians and Muslims kill?
The Qur’an calls liars losers, and it says that God will
punish hypocrites by burning them eternally after judging them on
judgment day, and so do the Gospels.
Consider that in the context of revelations of Roman
Catholic priests molesting children and Roman Catholic bishops covering
for the priests and Roman Catholic cardinals covering for the bishops
and Roman Catholic popes covering for the cardinals and hiding them in
And ask why Christians condemn jihad, while praising the
crusades and why United States coins violate the United States

Why are media and government
pundits calling Marilyn Mosby’s plea for peace a political rush to
She said that she heard the public
pleas for justice in return for peace, but she immediately followed that
by saying that she needed the public to provide peace, long enough for
her to deliver the justice!
Those media and government propaganda
pundits are ignoring the second part of that.
And why are media and government
pundits calling killing to avenge cartoons of Muhammad Islamic?
The Qur’an directs violence only in
defense against Muslims’ property!
And Muslims don’t draw cartoons of
Jesus or Moses.
That kind of punditry belongs in Las Vegas!

Bob Schieffer, on CBS’s Face the
Nation Sunday, said the United States have been trying to give African
Americans equal rights since being a nation.
Facts are that Washington and Jefferson
“owned” slaves, that the nearest thing to trying Washington did was
stipulating in his last will and testament that his slaves be free on
his wife’s death, and that the nearest thing to trying Jefferson did was
saying that eventually slaves would “rise from the dust.”
Washington’s wife freed his slaves
before her death, because she was afraid they would rise from the dust,
to kill her for their freedom.
Fortunate for the African
Americans trying to rise from the dust in Baltimore is that Al Sharpton
didn’t stir up much dust there as publicly as he ordinarily irreverently
He tried to upstage Baltimore’s female
African American mayor at a press conference after the riots, but during
them he left Representative Elijah Cummings to lead the outside
influence, relevantly and reverently and successfully.
He succeeded in not muddying the
suddenly rolling water.
But media and government pundits continue to waffle as did
Washington and Jefferson, as did the United States government when it
reneged on the promise of an acre of land and a mule to slaves the Civil
War freed, as they always have before and after Johnson signed the
Voting Rights Act for votes.

The Dao De Jing, the primary
scripture of Taoism, says that the worst misfortune is not knowing what
I know people, whose only income is
from social security, who have filled their homes with things for which
they have no use.
Most of it is junk, but they refuse to
throw it away, and I suspect that the reason is that they feel that
losing it would keep them less wealthy than billionaires owning houses
they nearly never use.
And racism is also in indirect
proportion to buying power.
The term “redneck” originated in
reference to European American farmers bending their necks to plowing
beneath the sun.
But now both European Americans and
African Americans use that term to refer to drunken racist European
Americans both also call white trash.
And same is true of illegal drug
use and other crime.
Of Earth’s half dozen most popular
religions, only Buddhists are less violent than Taoists, and Buddhists
have more buying power.
And they preach more.

The Fraternal Order of Police
added insult to injury by calling the indictment of the murderous
policed in Baltimore a rush to judgment.
No prosecutor has all the pertinent
facts before any trial, and no trial reveals all the pertinent facts,
but Marilyn Mosby knew enough.
What the FOE did was a more prejudicial
rush to judgment.
We should ask why police need a
union as we should ask why teachers need a union.
In Wisconsin teachers turned in
counterfeit sick slips to play hooky from their jobs after abdicating
their jobs by preaching their partisan opinions to students instead of
teaching them the facts we the people paid them to teach.
And those Baltimore police officers,
whether or not they did what the indictment says they did, abdicated
their official duty.
What Marilyn Mosby did was
precisely her job, and the only union prosecutors have is the political
unity that elected her to her job, unity that as easily can take it from

A half century ago, mass media
showed a picture of little Kim Phuk running naked among troops Lyndon
Johnson sent to Vietnam to kill what he called little yellow people,
with smoke rising from her village behind them.
Some people said that picture showed
the troops trying to help little Kim Phuk and the other children in the
picture while others said it showed the troops trying to do what Johnson
said he sent the troops to do.
What is shows is both, as media
pictures show both responsibility and racism, in Baltimore.
Mass media are showing a video
of the arrest of Freddie Gray, beginning with picking him up from the
ground beside a bicycle, not showing how he went to the ground.
Yesterday CNN aired an African American
nutcase saying the video shows police breaking Gray’s back by twisting
his leg after the video shows him limping after the police picked him up
from the ground.
The video shows how he received neither
But one thing no reasonable
person can deny is that the alliance between Crips and Bloods to
diminish the destruction shows that those two gangs are more like sports
teams than like armies.
They fight and sometimes kill each
other for fun, but know that peaceful people deserve a peaceful life,
and proved it.
And no one pays them.

We the people of the United States, falling for promotion
from our commercial mass media, feel sorry for Jack Kerouac and Elvis

and blame Mexicans for exporting Marijuana to us.
We the people of the United States buy and use the stuff.

The racist “religious right”
preaches family values.
But an African American term for
insulting one’s family is “playing the dozens,” because most value their
extended family, but insulting one’s mother is the worst.
Witness that kid in Baltimore, taking
those blows from his mother and leaving the riot to go home with her,
and her pointing out that his Facebook friends told him not to be “mad
at his mom” but to “give her a big hug.”
In the 1950’s most white folks
associated illegal drugs with jazz music and jazz music with African
White Jack Kerouac left a Columbia
University scholarship, to hang out with white people using illegal
drugs and raving about jazz music, and wrote about himself doing that.
He moved his mother from New Jersey to
a little white clapboard house he bought for her in Florida and died of
drug abuse it its bathroom.
And white Elvis Presley also
expressed extraordinary love for his mother, and he acknowledged his
debt to African American music, and he died much as Kerouac did.
And European Americans, from South
Boston destitution to Wall Street affluence, abuse illegal drugs and
brag about it.
And the percentage of African Americans
going to church every week is larger than that of European Americans

“If I ever get out of here,”
sang Bob Seeger in a rock song, “I’m going to Kathmandu.”
Seeger grew up in Detroit, and both
Detroit and New Orleans have far more African American inhabitants than
have other United States cities, and the population of both of those
cities is less than it was when Seeger first sang that song.
The European American “religious right”
