“Here in Asia, defending honor is everything,” said a CNN reporter.
He was in South Korea talking about the Sony Studios hacking and
saying Kim Jong Un might be defending his honor.
One problem with what that reporter said is that it’s as absurdly
prejudicial as saying all black people can tap dance, and another
problem is that it prejudges that Koreans did the hacking, and not
Japanese trying to promote the film.
And CNN pundit Jim Sciutto said the school shooting in Pakistan Tuesday
was an example of the “sick calculus” of Muslims.
Sciutto’s calculus is as sick as saying that all Roman Catholics
molest children, and he also spoke of the Afghan Taliban and the
Pakistani Taliban as though they’re one organization, although the
Afghan Taliban denounced the school shooting.
The Taliban originated as a reaction against the Soviet Union’s
invasion of Afghanistan and didn’t spread to Pakistan until the United
States invaded Afghanistan and treated the Taliban as though it were the
same as al Qaeda.
The likelihood of Sony being behind Guardians of Peace may not be as
probable as the likelihood of Mossad being behind ISIS.
But, in a world where the word “intelligence” often refers to
people “outsmarting” other people by lying to them, it’s no more extreme
than accusing Lee Harvey Oswald of doing something no reasonable person
thinks he could have done.
And it’s all possible because we the people like simple answers.

Wholesale media anti-Islamic propaganda is grotesquely out of joint.
Now U.S. mass news media are saying media reporting of ISIS
“inspired” that Iranian Australian to kill his wife and publicly expose
his genitals before ISIS existed.
And Australia’s Prime Minister said that wacko’s wacko behavior
was “politically motivated.”
Next will we say that Cosby’s behavior was because he’s African American
and that the reason African Americans behave that way is that many
Africans are Islamic? Will
we say Tina Turner moved to Germany and called the German language the
mother tongue because she’s an Islamic Nazi deserving what Ike did to
her? Will we say kids
killing their classmates in the United States are Islamic and inspired
today’s terror in Pakistan?
CNN’s pundit former Assistant Director of the FBI Tom Fuentes said
Monday that ISIS behaves the way it does to inspire “lone wolfs” like
that nut case in Australia.
And another CNN pundit predicted that ISIS will claim responsibility for
that killing because it behaves as insanely as he did.
ISIS might if it’s a Mossad operation.
Frittering and twittering
17 December 2014
Attitudes toward history can be weird.
Coldwater has an opera house a guy built in 1882 in emulation of
the Louvre courtyard. The
construction of the Louvre was in the sixteenth century, but local
“historians” say the architectural style of the opera house is “Second
French Empire,” although the second French empire was in the nineteenth
century and ended more than a decade before the construction of the
Nineteenth century French architects emulated the Renaissance, but the
opera house resembles the Louvre particularly, not the Renaissance
generally. It’s little like
saying that people who say “yadayadayada” are Hindus.
“Yadayadayada” approximates Sanskrit for “whatever.”
But the part I don’t understand is why giving humanity easy access to
the World Wide Web hasn’t rid humanity of provincialism.
16 December 2014
ISIS has the military strength of about two infantry divisions.
It has no air force, and its political strength is far less than
was the Vichy governing of France during World War II, and popular
support of the Vichy government was nearly zero.
Yet media and government pundits in the United States, a nation
with many infantry divisions and the most powerful air force on earth,
call ISIS formidable and ratify its claim to be a state.
Part of the reason for the success of ISIS is that mass media exaggerate
to profit by sensationalism, and part of the reason is that government
officials we elect exaggerate problems, to exaggerate our need to
reelect them. And CIA
torture is partly because we humans disprove our claim to be superior to
dumb animals by unreasonably running our yaps.
General Hayden competes with Saint Paul’s pharisaically
So none of that is new. In
1431, nineteen-year-old Johanne of Domremy defeated all efforts of a
court of about sixty clergy of the Roman Clergy to convict her of
heresy, by answering their absurd questions matter-of-factly.
But they arranged to burn her at the stake without convicting
her. We humans consistently
demonstrate how inhumane we are.
They did it by more unreasonable rationalization.
Wealth and weirdness
15 December 2014
Racism and sexism are the blind trying to blind the not so blind.
In the United States, most racism is against people who were
slaves in the United States, but resentment of the Chinese
out-capitalizing U.S. capitalism is another example.
And so was the United States Department of Defense not only
trying to capitalize Vietnam but also organizing Vietnamese prostitution
and sending troops to Bangkok for more if it and calling it R&R.
Regarding Bill Cosby, maybe next we’ll repeat what J. Edgar Hoover said
about Martin Luther King, Jr.
Hoover, besides calling King a communist, cited his extramarital
behavior as an example of Africans rooting like rabbits.
But Cosby’s capital hid him.
Muslims might point out that the Solomon said that money is the answer
And times for aggrandizing vanity
14 December 2014
Solomon, wisely or not, preached that nothing’s new.
Cosby’s still a scumbag, and ISIS is still terrorizing Syria and
Iraq, and the CIA is still calling disinformation intelligence, and
racism remains rampant in the land of the free, and pundits still mealy
mouth. And, meanwhile, the
mass news media are calling the mealy mouthing breaking news.
Concerning Cosby a pundit asked a victim how she felt about being a
black woman complaining about a black man.
No one would ask a white woman how she felt about complaining
about a white man. We
seriously need to get a grip.
The whole human tragicomedy reminds me of London’s skyline since London
added the London Eye to Big Ben.
13 December 2014
Johanne of Domremy, whom humans weirdly call Joan of Arc, indicated the
futility of torture when the ecclesiastical court accusing her of heresy
threatened to put her on the rack.
She said that she might say anything under torture but that she
would say later that she said it only because she was under torture.
In the six centuries since then our human reason apparently
hasn’t risen to the plain sense of a nineteen-year-old girl.
And seventeen-year-old Malala, who received her Nobel Peace Prize this
week, further demonstrated that.
An Islamic woman founded Earth’s oldest university, but
Christians say educating women isn’t Islamic, and so do Muslims.
Malala is Islamic.
And the Ten Commandments accord more with Islam than with Judaism.
Asking and telling
12 December 2014
Diane Feinstein pointed out to Wolf Blitzer that media reporting of the
CIA torcher report is an example of media terrorizing by exaggerating to
ignoring Feinstein’s also saying that neither Bush nor Powell knew of
any torcher beyond waterboarding, responded by asking Feinstein whether
she was calling the current CIA director a liar.
Feinstein showed that she, long of the “liberal” political party,
can be reasonable. Blitzer
showed that he, long of the “liberal” media, can be absurd.
Blitzer’s question, besides being an example of what she said media do,
implied either that he thinks no one can make an honest mistake or that
she thinks that. And, also
on the day of that interview, CNN reporters called
Black Hawk Down and
Zero Dark Thirty CIA operations.
Misrepresenting Hollywood fiction as CIA fact is not an honest
But questions I have are how the covert torturers slipped through the
CIA’s recruiting process and why the Defense Department drafted overt
homosexuals for Vietnam.
11 December 2014
One difference between the civil rights protests now and those a half
century ago is the number of young white people standing beside black
people. In the sixties white
kids were too busy protesting against the war in Vietnam to pay much
attention to the struggles of African Americans trying to get the
government to act on the Civil Rights Act and the Voting Rights Act.
Then they had cause to protest for their own civil rights.
But no large scale civil rights movement ever arose for the aborigines
of this continent who still suffer at the hands of the government.
Most of them live in poverty on their reservations where they eke
out their living by providing gambling to white folks or by storing
nuclear waste for the government.
The nearest thing to protesting for them that white folks are
doing now is complaining that the capital calls its football team
We humans tend to try to put ourselves ahead of our neighbors, and one
reason few us the people protested against the Trail of Tears the party
of Jefferson Davis instigated long before the Civil War may be that the
most massive media were newspapers, while now we watch war live on TV.
But that’s also the reason troublemakers are making trouble for
the people protesting lawfully now.
TV shows where they can make trouble.
10 December 2014
Rush Limbaugh, before calling the United States government a regime,
said Eric Holder called police an occupying force.
Nancy Snyderman has made a career of capitalizing on
misrepresenting herself as a martyr to events of her own life and
furthered that with her response to complaints of her sensationalizing
Ebola while showing by her behavior that she didn’t believe her
sensationalism. We need
Snyderman and Limbaugh, while misrepresenting from opposite ends of U.S.
partisanship, have three things in common.
Both promote themselves at the expense of the rest of us, and
both have promoted prescription pain killers by their behavior, and both
do it through mass media.
Mass media make terrorism possible.
And now media pundits are promoting the nonsense that terrorists are
likely to terrorize in response to a partisan rant against the CIA.
That assumes that terrorists terrorizing against the United
States government believe in it.
Think about it.
Preaching against Ecclesiastes
9 December 2014
Eric Garner’s namesake daughter said that murdering her father wasn’t a
racism problem but a police problem.
Part of the problem is that police generally are people who think
that physical force is essential to peace, but the main part of the
problem again conspicuous in the Unites States is that police apply that
physical force mostly against African Americans, and that’s a fact.
And the paramedic was also white.
Bill de Blasio and others offering training as a solution to
unreasonable police force are ignoring that police inflicting it have
already received training instructing them not to.
De Blasio’s wife is African American, but he’s a member of the
party of the Jefferson Davis, and his mealy mouthing supports the choke
hold Tea Party mad hatters are applying to the party of Abraham Lincoln.
And it’s all under the media’s lights and in no way new.
The word “ignorance” doesn’t refer to stupidity but to ignoring.
Media and government pundits aren’t ignoring that police and
paramedics aren’t too stupid to understand training, but they’re
ignoring that police and paramedics have received training but ignored
it, to kill Eric Garner. And
most of those ignorant pundits hold academic degrees from universities
that compromise academics standards to sell violent sports.
Beggars and buggers and burgers
8 December 2014
I worked for Saint Francis House, the Boston homeless shelter where Mark
Wahlberg’s brother Jim with a Saint Francis tattoo on the back of his
neck was a substance abuse counselor while moonlighting in a porno shop,
when the shelter used donations for diversity training to cover for
racism on the part of its executive management before giving me three
months’ severance pay to go away and stop complaining about such.
The most substantial difference between the Wahlberg brothers and other
South Boston drug addict punks is that Mark’s clever enough to profit
from his lack of conscience.
Now he’s asking a court in the “cradle of liberty” to pardon him for
beating a guy’s eye out. And
his PR people are saying his professional acting has earned the pardon.
That’s the logic of the Cosby victim who said the reason she didn’t
complain about his raping her was that she didn’t wish to undercut the
hypocrisy of his media presence.
Those people rob any sucker any way they can.
And we buy their Wahlbergers.
Black holes and sun spots
7 December 2014
CBS said on its Evening News that the “grand jury” process is
“enshrined” in the constitution.
The word “grand” is nowhere in the constitution, not in
conjunction with the word “jury,” or anywhere else.
But the main problem with that assertion is that media can get
away with such misrepresentation because we the people of the United
States are about as likely to read our Constitution as Christians are to
read their Bible.
Another example of the problem of punditry is that Cosby was a role
model by using the mass media to promote his hypocritical punditry, and
one of the women accusing him said the reason she didn’t report his
assault earlier was that she didn’t want to interfere with his
hypocritical message, because his lies were positively idealistic.
And we’re too busy idealizing Derek Jeter to point out the shirt
on the cop murdering Eric Garner.
We enshrine racism and sexism and nationalism and sectarianism and any
other kind of bigotry that incites us to violence.
I was in a bar in Tangier a few years ago, and the bartender in
that Islamic nation that was the first nation to recognize the United
States as a nation was mocking how Muslims pray, as his customers
laughed. The one thing we
humans have in common is our ability to fictionalize fault in anyone but
Bias and bigotry
6 December 2014
Fox News’ Greg Gutfeld said the cause of the murder of Eric Garner was
taxes on tobacco. And Fox
News’ Greta Van Susteren said the cause of the murder was that the
police ignored Garner’s saying he couldn’t breathe.
Both of them were blowing smoke.
But the Bible says that the last supper of Jesus celebrated the
Passover. The Bible also
says that Jesus said that tying a millstone to a person’s neck and
throwing him into an ocean would be better for him than that he harm a
child. And the Passover
celebrates God’s killing all the firstborn children of all the Egyptians
as though all the Egyptians and their children were guilty of what the
The Bible also says both that God is not a respecter of persons and that
the Israelites are his chosen people.
The New Testament says that gentiles can go to heaven if they
repent and believe in Jesus. But
the Old Testament says Jews can kill them anyway.
Barnum and baloney
5 December 2014
Media and government pundits are alleging that a woman the Lebanese
government arrested a few days ago may have been a wife of the man they
allege leads ISIS and may have helped him do that.
The Bible alleges that linguistic difference began with the tower
of Babel, while history says that tower was a ziggurat Mesopotamians
built in Babylon, around the time the Bible says Abraham’s descendants
were captive there. And history
says that Isis was the Egyptian goddess of motherhood, and that
Canaanite shepherds ruled Egypt between pharaohs, allegedly at about the
time of Abraham.
Anyway, it’s all political, as is that media and government pundits and
pollsters are alleging that Republican Party is alleging that Ben Carson
is the front runner for candidacy to be the next Republican President of
the United States. Medical
doctor Carson stands as much chance of election to Presidency in 2016 as
pizza magnate Cain stood in 2004.
The circumlocutious race to the next Presidency has begun.
History of those races during the current millennium suggests that
Heehaw Hillary and Mormon Mitt will again race but lose, but it also
suggests that the Tea Party will undercut anyone as rational as Jeb
Bush, to keep copping out the American dream.
Better a millstone
4 December 2014
St. Louis’ NFL team stepped aside from violence long enough to protest
against police violence, and St. Louis responded to that by protesting
against those football players, and an NBC pundit suggested that the
police sue the NFL. And now
the police department that murdered Michael Brown in St. Louis suburb
Ferguson has said it may charge Brown’s stepfather with inciting a riot
by expressing his anger at the murder of his stepson by calling for
burning Ferguson down.
It all gets crazier and crazier.
Another NFL player, one with a Harvard degree, demonstrated rare
responsibility by taking his eight year old son to a press conference to
show off the kid’s mathematical ability.
The kid showed his ability to multiple numbers in the ninety’s in
his head, and the father nearly forgot to thank his audience as he and
his son left the podium, and turned back with a thank you.
But a news reporter, as though many adults could do what the kid
did, said that what was amazing was that the kid’s but eight, and no one
asked why the father wasn’t doing something useful, with his Harvard
Note that the white policeman who murdered an African American by
choking him to death, for waving his arms and asking the police why they
were detaining him, was in a football jersey.
Violence is entertainment, and mass news media thrive on it, and
another question is why they don’t take responsibility for fostering it
while another is why no one accuses them of inciting rioting.
And government pundits do the same and often become media pundits
after relinquishing their government power to incite people.
The American dream
3 December 2014
Anchoring ABC’s This Week this Sunday, Martha Raddatz said we should
move on from Ferguson, but she didn’t say to where we should move.
We’ve moved from the Civil War to the Montgomery bus boycott to
the Civil Rights Act and the Voting Rights act without leaving behavior
like Wilson’s behind.
Etymologically the word “competition” means walking together while we
use it to refer to moving ahead of everyone else.
We have Janay Rice supporting Ray to support her life as a wife of an
NFL player aside from suffering from the violence that’s essential to
football. We buy football
tickets and elect to our government people who say the reason
immigration reform is necessary is that we’re turning away computer
experts who could make our lives easier.
A more important reason immigration reform is necessary is to be
fair to people who feed us.
As picking cotton to clothe others was when slaves did it, picking
strawberries to feed others is backbreaking work “illegal aliens” do,
and slaves had less of a chance of starving or freezing to death than do
“illegal aliens.” New
legislation is no more likely to move us from Ferguson to the American
dream than old legislation has.
The only solution to humanity’s being what we call inhumane is
that we develop a conscience.
Cold killing hands
2 December 2014
A Fox News “anchor”, interviewing a PTSD veteran and someone claiming to
cure him by taking him hunting and fishing, said that other PTSD
therapists say the appropriate approach is to have the patient relive
the trauma until he inures himself to it.
The pundit said the two approaches are the extreme opposites of
each other, but the main trauma causing the stress is guilt from
killing, and killing is inherent to hunting and fishing.
And the pundit also, after calling hunting and fishing Zen, said
Ray Rice’s offense was “violating the NFL’s policy against domestic
And think what the Obama lynch mob anchors.
Now, after complaining that Obama is spending too much time on
vacation and fundraising and golf to manage his administration, it’s
calling him a micromanager.
And Jewish Senator Chuck Schumer, who has called Hillamneycare the main
success of his administration, now says Obama paid too much attention to
Hillamneycare and not enough to defending Israel.
Meanwhile pundits are saying Ferguson protestors in V for Vendetta masks
are plagiarizing Occupy Wall Street, as though the Wall Street
protesters weren’t plagiarizing the Hollywood movie, which is about the
1 December 2014
A Fox News pundit on its show OUT# on Thanksgiving added a reason to
call the show outnumbered.
She said, arguing for saying “merry Christmas” instead of “happy
holidays,” that 51% of the people on her Christmas card list are Jewish.
Since she’s a U.S. mass media employee, while fewer than a
quarter of a percent of humans are Jews, that’s an indication of how
disproportionately Judaism controls our mass media.
And, on Black Friday, CNN announced the reprieve of violent Ray Rice.
Like Moses and Joshua, humanity is irrationally greedy and
violent, and proof of that is forgiving the violence of football players
because it entertains us.
And that’s also a media function, and NBC’s Bryan Williams said the term
“Black Friday,” which originated in “the city of brotherly love” the
year of the Civil Rights Act, has always been with us.
An example of the ignorance of history mass media promote both as
fiction and as news is the Hollywood “classic”
The Ten Commandments.
That movie, the year of the Montgomery bus boycott, ignored the
fact that Egypt’s pyramids are more than a millennium older than Moses
to depict Israelite slaves building them.
Now CNN, to defend Darren Wilson, is airing Uncle Toms and Aunt
30 November 2014
Fox News, on Thanksgiving, promoted the Wounded Warrior Project.
Fox News promotes itself as being conservative capitalist, but
the Wounded Warrior Project’s financial statement indicate that most of
its budget goes to promoting itself, and that nearly all of the rest of
it goes to counseling groups.
Conserving capitalism like that consumes funds we the people
could invest in concrete productivity.
But a more flagrant scam is the International Federation of Christians
and Jews. That’s the
organization airing the TV commercials soliciting donations for the poor
Jews in Israel. Jews are
stereotypically fiscally efficient, and Israel is more of a welfare
state than any nation on earth, and that organization’s financial
statements say that all of its expenditures go to other fundraising
organizations. The purpose
of laws requiring publishing financial statements is clarity.
IFCJ’s financial statements only obfuscate.
Part of the problem is that few people look at the financial statements
of organizations they voluntarily fund, and part of that problem is that
trying to do that is likely to take the donor into labyrinthine layers
of other organizations’ financial statements.
That’s somewhat true of the Wounded Warrior Project financial
statements and flagrantly true of those of the International Federation
of Christians and Jews.
29 November 2014
Why do TV news reporters confuse people visiting their families for
Thanksgiving with Little Red Riding Hood surviving a walk through woods
to save her grandmother from a wolf?
Why, more than a century after Susan B. Anthony won the First
Amendment for women, are female TV news reporters reporting in spike
heels? Why did a
psychiatrist, whom Fox News ostensibly aired for her “expertise,” call
prejudice confirmation bias?
Look at the career of George Stephanopoulos with the American
Broadcasting Company. After
serving Clinton in the Whitehouse, he replaced Sam Donaldson and Cokie
Roberts as anchor of ABC’s This Week when it drew more powerful guests
than any other TV show. But,
from that, he followed in the footsteps Soapy Diane Sawyer to replace
her as anchor of ABC’s soapy Good Morning America when Sawyer began
anchoring ABC’s World News Tonight in soap.
Now Sawyer groupie David Muir is soaping World News Tonight.
And Stephanopoulos is choking on soap.
Let’s try to imagine what Susan B. Anthony and Rosa Parks would think of
Sarah Jessica Parker and Oprah.
Women’s liberation has shifted from suffrage to abortion, from
the right to participate in the First Amendment to the right to be as
irresponsible as men. But
Cackle Clinton might be the main indication of the problem, calling
accepting flowers from a little girl in Bosnia dodging sniper fire,
standing in pant suits by her man.
Truth and freedom
28 November 2014
Trials in courts of the United States are between two sides.
A grand jury proceeding is a prosecutor arguing or not arguing
effectively or ineffectively for or against his side.
What happened in Ferguson was like Saddam Hussein determining
whether or not to try Uday and Qusay.
A constitutional lawyer would not say the concept of double
jeopardy would apply to such.
Let’s ask why our mass media aren’t pointing that out.
ABC’s George Stephanopoulos interviewed Wilson as congenially as the
prosecutor did. And a Fox News
reporter, the morning after the second night of rioting in response to
the grand jury decision, correctly said that people in Ferguson would
regard that interview as they do the grand jury decision.
But that reporter also said that a Ferguson policeman grabbed a
protester kneeling with her hands in the air “by the scruff of her neck
as you would a kitten.”
Maybe he and Wilson would do that to a kitten.
Maybe Stephanopoulos wouldn’t, and maybe his motive for cutting Wilson
slack was from a wish to stop the violence in Ferguson, but the only way
to stop the violence in Ferguson or anywhere else is to stop the
bigotry. And the only way to
stop bigotry is to stop hypocrisy and look facts straight in the face
and bring them to light plainly and simply.
Yet, weirdly, the “religious right” ignores the Bible saying
Jesus told us that.
27 November 2014
Media are reporting the resignation of Hagel and the rapes at the
University of Virginia as they’re reporting the murder and riots in
Ferguson. They’re offering
unreasonable arguments for and against all of it while ignoring the
fundamental problem. The
fundamental problem is that yapping humans are more violent than are
That 48-hour warning that prosecutor promised in Ferguson was strategic
propaganda. If he kept that
promise, either no one told any protesters or the mass news media, or
the media were in cahoots with the police to incite riots to try to use
them as excuses for what Wilson did.
Either way, the grand jury declared hunting season open on
African America, and media reporters are telling us burning a liquor
store is worse than murder.
One piece of insanity in the reporting of Hagel’s resignation is the
claim that he knows nothing about strategy because he wasn’t an officer.
On the ground, he saw results of orders of officers, and he saw
in the United States Congress how tactics can undercut strategy.
Jessica Lynch knows more about war than does Leon Panetta.
26 November 2014
I recognize that Bill Cosby is a degenerate scumbag, but I don’t
understand why Roman Polanski didn’t similarly hit the fan, when he
directed Tess of the Durbervilles.
I think the black female Fox News pundit who said Cosby was the
most powerful man in Hollywood should change her name to Oprah.
And male black CNN pundits prove themselves to be Uncle Toms in
regard to Ferguson and immigration and other bigotry.
CNN consistently proves itself untrustworthy on issues ranging from
world politics to consumer protection.
The day the pundit said Cosby had been the most powerful man in
Hollywood, CNN promoted a company charging $4.00 for deferring UPS and
FedEx and USPS deliveries to it for delivery after ordinary business
hours, as thought that promotion were news.
UPS and FedEx and USPS permit pickup at their locations after
ordinary working hours. That
service costs the consumer considerably less than $4.00.
Moreover, CNN is now emulating MSNBC and Fox News emulation of the
National Enquirer approach to
news, airing sensationalist stories as though they’re historical
documentaries. That’s not
new in broadcast television, with ABC making Diane Sawyer its evening
news anchor, and moving its This Week anchor to Sawyer’s soapy morning
slot. But CNN’s promise at
its founding was to deliver only important relevance.
Means unhappily necessary
25 November 2014
In 1955, when Rosa Parks sat down on that bus in Montgomery and refused
to give up her black seat to a white man, Nixon was the name of both the
head of the Montgomery chapter of the National Association for the
Advancement of Colored People and the Vice President of the United
States. Raymond Parks,
Rosa’s Husband, was a member of an organization raising funds for the
defense of the Scottsboro Boys and hosted meetings of the group in their
home while Rosa was secretary to the NAACP chapter.
All of us, like Malcolm X, should wonder how one of those Nixons
received his name.
Obama’s immigration order isn’t extraordinary.
The Emancipation Proclamation was an executive order.
William Henry Harrison, whose Presidency was the shortest, issued
the fewest executive orders.
Franklin Delano Roosevelt, whose Presidency was the longest, issued the
Compare Obama’s immigration order to Netanyahu’s ordering demolition of
homes and saying it deters suicide.

China doesn’t have many immigrants, and neither did I see any tourists
from the United States in the 2 ½ weeks I spent traveling across China a
few years ago, but neither did I see any smog.
My main reason for going there was that the Tao Te Ching seems to me to
be more consistent than any other religious scripture, but I found
people in China to hurry as much as people in New York, making me wonder
where were all the Taoists.
But I also wondered where all the Christians were while I sat alone on
the Mount of Beatitudes.
Everywhere I go I find generalizations not fitting actuality.
Prejudice is nonsense.
Faith in fraud
23 November 2014
“A quitter never wins, and a winner never quits,” don’t say voters in
Ferguson or New Orleans.
After the Long/Edwards legacy sent New Orleans’ last African Mayor to
prison for participating in its corruption, the people of New Orleans
voted a white skinhead to sit in his seat, although most of them are
black. The problem in New
Orleans, like the problem in Ferguson, is that the black majority has
quit believing in voting.
And the “liberal” media aren’t helping.
One of the many factors Ferguson and Sanford have in common is
the media reporting of police propaganda.
Regarding both Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown, police made no
claims that they injured the patrolmen who murdered them until the court
process began, and then they claimed severe injuries not evident in
photographs they released to the media immediately following the
In Ferguson, as the grand jury’s decision approached, firearm sales
increased. CNN reported that
but didn’t report or raise the question of what race bought most of the
weapons, and CNN hired as a legal pundit the attorney who orchestrated
the acquittal of the murderer of Trayvon Martin, and aired his opinion
on Michael Brown immediately after reporting the increase in firearm
sales. Yet we the people

Chong, of Cheech and Chong, said on Fox News’ show Out# that what
Jonathan Gruber said about Hillamneycare typifies politicians.
Whether or not Chong is correct, doing that is easy because
neither politicians nor we the people they represent take the time to
read bills as extensive as is Hillamneycare, and Gruber’s assertion says
mainly that he’s seeking Republican employment.
None of it is particular to Obama.
Chong also said that, if we had no national borders, we wouldn’t have
immigration problems. That’s obvious, as obvious as that sports are an
example of the tendency of humanity toward violent discrimination for
the fun of it, but Chong also said that marijuana has caused no death by
motor vehicle. We don’t know
that, because we don’t test for tetrahydrocannabinol after motor vehicle
accidents, as we do for alcohol.
We run our yaps. We say
we’re superior to dumb animals by being able to reason, and we use
“dumb” as a synonym for “stupid,” but none of that is reasonable.
Dumb animals kill less than humans do and don’t kill for fun but
only for food or defense.
Consider the phrase “pure as the driven snow” we use to praise what we
desecrate. We humans kill each other for wealth and kill ourselves by
wasting our wealth.
Sheep and shysters

Why is CNN saying that North Koreans worship Kim Jong -un?
Every person everywhere rules his own mind to the extent of being
able to decide not to generalize as CNN pundits do!
Most people understand the concept of a silent majority and the
hope anyone can have for rebellion.
English colonists rebelled against English colonization as Indian Hindus
rebelled against English colonization as Indian Muslims rebelled against
Hindu rule following Gandhi’s rebellion and created Pakistan and
Bangladesh after Russians and Chinese rebelled against monarchies before
people rebelled against the successors of those monarchies.
Someday shall we the people of the United States rebel against the
propaganda the news network we most trust spews contrary to what’s
obvious to us? We might need
to rebel against commercial drug companies first!
They have too many of us trying to be all Advil.
Literacy and lunacy
20 November 2014
Peter Kassig’s parents thanked “one god of many names” for their son.
Israeli claims to worship the God of Abraham and Isaac and Jacob
imply polytheism by suggesting that others have other gods.
And Judaism dissociates itself from descendants of Abraham and
