Make The World Safer-Boycott & Sanction Israel

Today is the 1 year anniversary of Israel's attack on Gaza. The Zionists killed over 1300 trapped Palestinians. The only weapon that was not used was one of their 200 nuclear devices. It would have been used but Gaza is too near. In a related event a Nigerian man tried to blow up a Northwest Airline over Detroit. It would be a symbolic and lethal attack to an American airplane and its passengers because of the U.S. support of Israel.

Israel is not worth supporting. The country should be boycotted, sanctioned and Israeli investments should be avoided. The Zionists have been a caricature of uncivilized behavior long before the Nazis showed up and have only gotten worse over time.

Italy Comments On Government & Religion

Last week Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi was assaulted and suffered a broken nose. Yesterday Pope Benedict XVI was knocked down while leading religious services in St. Peter' Basilica. Both assailants were off the street individuals. Nothing points to an organization or a conspiracy behind the two attackers. All this added to the events in Iran where the government is seriously disconnected from its people and it looks like developing trend.

What's this all mean? On its face it looks like two deranged people exercising an anarchistic attitude. If these violent incidents continue and also spread to more countries then something deeper is at work. I.E. a revulsion against extremes and caricatures of power who are bigoted or consumed with only self interest.

If SFUSD Is The Face Of The Future, We're Doomed.

Last night, I tuned into the local TV feed of a San Francisco Unified School District Board meeting. It was certainly educational. But the Board didn't talk about education. It talked about a lack of diversity in SF classrooms. The acting chairwoman was bemaoaning the fact of an overwhelming majority of African-Americans, Hispanics and Somoans filling the desks (some of the 5th grader Somoans really fill the desks because of their obesity). Those three races in one classroom sounds like a diversity from hell. The African Americans would walk around the class while the Samoans would sleep and the Hispanics would be texting their  plans for their next holdup.

The attendance was sparse. This was inspite of free interpretors being offered at the meeting which included Arab, Vietnamese, Samoan, Russian, Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Spanish and Tagalog (Flipapino). Only 2 white guys addressed the Board and complained about their children being bussed across town to dangerous neighborhoods for schooling. They wanted to know why they couldn't use the schools in their neighbohoods. The Chair didn't answer that question.

Just another day in the SFUSD. Everybody talks but nobody listens.

Greece, Democracy & Standard & Poors

Standard & Poors reduced the credit rating of Greece's debt. Greece came up with the idea of democracy. They have never lived within their budget since that ancient time. They only deferred the bills. Now S&P is calling them out on their failed social scheme. Look for more riots but only during the work week. The sons and daughters of democracies cherish their weekends. 

We need a return to a work standard not a political standard.

Et Tu Berlusconi?

Prime Minister of Italy ,Silvio Berlusconi got a broken nose, split lip and broken teeth from a voter in Italy yesterday in the city of Milan. That was Berlusconi's home town. In these days of would be empires e.g. , al Qaida and the United States which are projecting their aspirations among the remains of former empires -Italy's Roman Empire being the most famous- the assault on Berlusconi is worth noting. 

A quick look of Berlusoni's history on Wikipedia involves about a 2-3  foot scroll down of mostly allegations of criminal conduct without convictions. The allegations range from collusion with the Mafia in assorted schemes through corruption and bribery of the police and judges to tax fraud and criminal accounting techniques. His personal moral rap sheet is another matter.

But Berlusconi on a number of occasion has used his postion as head of state to pass laws in Italy's paliament to protect himself from prosecution and conviction. In two or three court battles the proceedings were stopped  because of a statute of limitations law that was passed by his majority in parlaiment while the court was in session.

One can understand the frustration of Berlusconi's assailant. One can hardly understand why there was only one such incident in Berlusoni's long tenure. Anyway, Berlusconi got off a lot easier than former empire dreamers Julius Caesar and Benito Mussolini did. 

All empires dissolve because of corruption. There will always be corruption . But the best way to limit it is to have more power locally so the corruption can be accessed and stopped more quickly and easily. I predict that this physical voter activism towards deseriving unindicted criminal politicians  will gain more popularity. George W. Bush and Dick Cheney are on many short lists if opportunity provides an opening.

Tiger Woods: Barter Is Better Than Cash

All of Tiger Wood's earnings only enabled him to barter a physical transaction betwee the 10 and counting counter- barter women. Women continue to hold the trumps with their rumps and bumps.

"Change" In Washington

"Change" has indeed come to Washington. Obama's electioneering mantra has been fufilled. But the change is in fact the reality it's gotten worse in government. The wars are expanding, the deficits are exploding and the Congress has only enhanced their control over personal lives. What's to be done? Boycott Washington is the plan. Vote libertarian.

Power Brings Out The Best And The Worst In People

In 1964 Martin Luther King Jr. won the Nobel Peace Prize for his powerful, successful,  non-violent leading of the civil rights movement in America. In 2009 Barack Obama, who is the first Africa-American president, won the Nobel Peace Prize whilst expanding the Afghanistan war.

King, a minority, non-violent leader, set up the opportunity for Obama, a minority to become president. And what did the first minority president do? He took the unprecedented power and became like the majority of greedy presidents who project increasing arrogance. King would disapprove.

Why Poll Morons?

"Let's take a poll"is the age old semi-scientific standard for determining the validity of most any idea. "Garbage in garbage out"is an age old comment on "scientific and semi-scientific"tests.

A recent" The New York Times/CBS News Poll" found these two results among some of the answers.

QUESTION: Do you approve or disapprove of sending an additional 30,000 U.S. troops to Afghanistan in the coming months?

ANSWER: 51% Approved; 43% Disapproved; 6% No Opinion.

QUESTION: Do you think sending more U.S. troops to Afghanistan will make the U.S. safer from terrorism, less safe, or wil not affect the U.S.'s safety from terrorism?

ANSWER: 39% Safer; 8% Less Safe; 45% Will not Affect; 8% No Opinion.

In short, the results indicate that the majority think the troops should be sent but the majority also concludes that troops will fail.

I thought that the criminals and the morons in Congress were the basic problem. I was wrong. It obviously goes deeper than that.

P.S. Obama accepts Nobel Peace Prize simultaneouly with Marines leaving for Afghanistan.

P.P.S. Chaos will follow the human spiecies.

It's Getting To Be Too Much !

It may be obvious. It may be a little bit late to say it. But in America today, it's all getting to be too, too much for one person or one country to handle or enjoy. Whether it's two wars of choice or a golfer earning 100's of millions to hit a ball or convicted phychos being pardoned by serious presidential candidates from prison to kill 4 police officers etc., etc. it can't last. What's to do? Know your friends. Support them and your family and learn a skill that you can barter.

Why We're In Afghanistan

Finally Secretary of Defense Robert Gates made it clear why the U.S. is in Afghanistan. He was giving testimony to Congress as a follow up to Obama's order to send an additional 30,000 troops into the meat grinder . He said, " The U. S. must win in Afghanistan because the Taliban defeated the Soviet Union. They were the only other super power at the time some 20 years ago and if they [Taliban] defeat the United States now then they will win a great symbolic victory and become unstopable."

Consider that the old USSR was defeated because it was in a country that it shouldn't have been. Also the U.S. helped the Taliban defeat the Russians. Now we have traded postions with the Russians and the British before them and Ghengis Khan before them and Alexander The Great before them. The take away lesson is that empires don't work for long. In the end they have to go home. But people like Gates and Obama and all the criminals before who indulge in empire building get paid too much for mischief and more importantly never appear at the front lines to catch bullets.

And if the Taliban want to be foolish also then will be made to look like fools also if they show up in the U.S. For now the American effort in Afghanistan has only created more blowback to the foreign invaders.

The Maurice Clemons Story

The story of Maurice Clemons is too preposterous to be a book. Clemons could only achieve reality and credibility in everyday normal American life. This is the culture that we want to export to the world?
