Be bad

Thinking about balance today
yin / yang
life / death
male / female
hot / cold
rich / poor
good / evil
and how one can't exist without the other
and therein lies the way to rid the world of evil
be bad

Happy Memorial Day

Let's eat some weinies
and drink some beer
to the brave men and women
no longer here
They died in the streets
in fear and pain
for liberty's pipelines
and free shipping lanes
don't cry in your salad
or weep in your pie
our children were maimed
so our flag would still fly
they died for our morals
our god
and our moms
for the companies that make
the bullets and bombs
they died for our right
to have oil and gas
for our right to praise jesus
our right
to kick ass

Toto, I don't think we're in Kansas anymore.....

While reading the latest account of the fighting in Swat,
I was struck by this ...........

"The Taleban are still patrolling Mingora, and from where I am based, I can only see the army troops at the emerald mines.The sound of firing can be heard intermittently in various areas of Mingora." (here)

Emerald mines?
That was the first I had heard.
Odd that it hasn't been mentioned in the news.
The Paki's are tearing the place up, killing scores of civilians, supposedly with the intent of subduing the Taliban.
Seizing the mines seems like a wise thing to do if the Taliban are using the proceeds from the mines to finance their "new world order", and this is confirmed in another story found.....

Taliban Jihad against west funded by emeralds from Pakistan. (here)

Seems like that would make for interesting news, so why the silence about them?
And why did the Pakistan government shut them down really?
Know what I think?
The Taliban has been using them all along for funds, with the nod and approval from certain elements of the Pakistan government, namely the ISI.
And I'm not so sure about opium poppies funding them as well.
Karzai's brother was recently linked to drug smuggling and many of the warlords are also,
blaming the Taliban is good cover for the crooked ones running the show over there.

But that's all a sideshow to the goings on all across Pipelinistan.
Here's the skinny on all the latest, from one of the best journalists on the planet,
Pepe Escobar

Read it yeah, and then you'll see that the shenanigans over there aren't all about....

Dey got bling!

Very pretty birds.

Barack Obama – Mass Murderer

By Dan Spielberg

"The beginning of wisdom is to call things by their right names"
~ Chinese Proverb

May 13, 2009 "Lew Rockwell" -- If you are a poor, hapless Afghan civilian whose family's bodies were ripped apart by U.S. bombs, does it really make a difference to you if the air "strikes" were ordered by the Moron from Texas, George W Bush, or the Agent of Change, Barack Obama? I would think not. If you were a Pakistani civilian whose village had been bombed by the U.S. would your heart be comforted by the fact that the mad bombers have a new, young, hip "Commander-in-Chief" who makes funny jokes to all the stenographers known as "The Washington Press Corps"? I sincerely doubt that as well.

Barack Obama sold himself to the country as someone who would bring massive "change" to the policies of the U.S. government, but of course when it comes to the favorite activity of that cancerous organism, warring against wholly innocent civilian populations in foreign countries, there will be no change. In fact, even the pleas of the President of the supposedly free and democratic country of Afghanistan are meaningless in the face of the U.S. government's desire to enforce its will on as much of the Earth as possible. I wonder if Americans would feel like they lived in a "free democracy" if the U.S. was occupied by a foreign military power that regularly killed our people and refused to stop? A power that calls refraining from murder as fighting with "one hand tied behind our back" as White House "National Security" Advisor James Jones recently did? I am pretty sure they emphatically would NOT.

This morning's news brings more information to us of "Barry's" latest slaughter, with at least 8 people in Pakistan dead, none of whom ever hurt a single innocent American. If they had hurt any U.S. soldiers in the region, that, of course, is wholly a result of the imperialists in Washington invading the region in the first place. To kill someone for defending themselves against aggression is the definition of tyrannical is it not? Or is the U.S. Government so holy, so infallible and morally upright that any who defy it are to be disposed of, like so much human garbage? Is a country that claims to be Christian really ready to accept the blasphemous idea that the U.S. Government is above any laws, even those of the God that the majority of Americans claim to believe in?

The Chinese proverb that opens this piece is true in all times and places, so let's call Mr. Obama by his real names: Wall Street Stooge, Zionist lickspittle, National Socialist, liar and above all, mass murderer.

Where do these people come from?
Every single stinking President that's been, since I was born, has engaged in war with another country, starting with Eisenhower and none of those engagements could be legitimately justified.
So now we have Obomba, apparently coming from a long line of presidential clones, unless somehow they start out as human beings only to have their brains sucked out and replaced with a preprogrammed implant.

"An Afghan provincial police chief said Wednesday that investigations showed more than 100 "non-combatants" had been killed in US-led coalition air strikes in western Afghanistan.

I'm fed up.
I'm sick of waiting for change.
I'm hopeless.
I'm tired of having my leaders kill in my name.
I can't just shut up and let the guy keep it up without saying something.
Obomba sucks!
What the hell is he thinking?
It's OK to kill multitudes of people?
For what?
Bush sent the troops to Afghanistan on a pretense.
He was gonna get Osama.
But instead he bombed the fucking country back to the stone age,
killing thousands of innocent people,
and now Obomba is doing the same.
Oh, and he's sooooooo sorry.
If that be true then we'll hear no more news of innocents dying because of US.

AIPAC...shut the fuck up!

While I was being tackled by security guards at Washington's Convention Center during the AIPAC conference for unfurling a banner that asked "What about Gaza?," my heart was aching. I wasn't bothered so much by the burly guards who were yanking my arms behind by back and dragging me-along with 5 other CODEPINK members-out of the hall. They were doing their job.

What made my heart ache was the hatred I felt from the AIPAC staff who tore up the banner and slammed their hands across my mouth as I tried to yell out: "What about Gaza? What about the children?"

"Shut the f--- up. Shut the f--- up." one staffer yelled, red-faced and sweating as he ran beside me. "This is not the place to be saying that shit. Get the f--- out of here."

A bridge to .............the other side

Getting to the other side was becoming a pain in the ass because the footbridge I made had been knocked down during the "raging river" season. So I put it back up today but not before I had retrieved one of the 3 4"x6" x 16' timbers that had been washed downstream 200 or 300 feet by the raging river ( which is merely babbling this time of year.)
I knew where the timber was because I had located it on a hike about a week after it disappeared but was too lazy to deal with it.
But I couldn't find it.
Then I spotted it,........... under a tree.
This was pretty odd because the last time I saw it, it wasn't under a tree.
As a matter of fact , the last time I saw the tree, it wasn't on top of my piece of timber!
So the next time I saw that tree, it isn't going to be with my eyes.

This old oak tree, 60' tall with a trunk about 3' diameter, came crashing down yesterday. Landing across the creek bed and creating a snag that's gonna be serious trouble next rainy season if I don't get it outta there. Oy!
Pat had been hiking down there earlier in the morning and we're both very glad she wasn't there for the big fall.

Waiting in line at Graingers.......

So, I'm waiting in line at Graingers yesterday for a light bulb I need for a directory board that is being made for a local library.
The line was pretty long when I arrived but I'm next and then the redneck behind me gets his turn.
Sorry for the wait......I'll be right back!

Boy have I heard that before.

Yeah, kinda like "you're check's in the mail".

Or, "promises" from Obama

Whadda ya think about that gun bill?

Gun bill? Oh, the gun license bill! Doesn't bother me. I think they should be licensed.

Really? You know ever since Obama was elected, it's getting harder and harder to find ammunition. There's a shortage all over the country.

Me: Well from what I understand, that's because ever since Obama was elected, there's been on run on guns and ammo and the stores are getting cleaned out! And also, our troops are using thousands of rounds for each Iraqi they kill. That would naturally put a crimp on the supplies.

Well, I don't think guns should be licensed. Guns don't kill people, people kill people.

Cars don't kill people, people kill people, but you need a license to drive a car and guns are no less deadly. Have you read the bill?


I'm pretty certain , someday, somethings gonna come of this..........

Deep shit and getting deeper?

The US National debt as of today.

"China has cancelled Americas credit card"
So says US Congressman Mark Kirk.

"The Republican lawmaker said that China was justified in concerns about returns from finance giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, which were bailed out by the US government due to the financial crisis.

Kirk said he was the first member of Congress to tour the Bureau of Public Debt, which trades bonds, and was alarmed at how much debt was being bought by the US Federal Reserve due to absence of foreign investors." (Full story here)

This is not good considering how far in debt the US is, and having THE national bank printing new money to make up the difference is probably going to destroy the value of the dollar which in turn will prompt more foreign investors to seek new places to play.


The Christians are an odd bunch........

WASHINGTON (CNN) — The more often Americans go to church, the more likely they are to support the torture of suspected terrorists, according to a new analysis.

More than half of people who attend services at least once a week — 54 percent — said the use of torture against suspected terrorists is “often” or “sometimes” justified. Only 42 percent of people who “seldom or never” go to services agreed, according the analysis released Wednesday by the Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life.

White evangelical Protestants were the religious group most likely to say torture is often or sometimes justified — more than 6 in 10 supported it. People unaffiliated with any religious organization were least likely to back it. Only 4 in 10 of them did.

The analysis is based on a Pew Research Center survey of 742 American adults conducted April 14-21. It did not include analysis of groups other than white evangelicals, white non-Hispanic Catholics, white mainline Protestants, and the religiously unaffiliated, because the sample size was too small.
