The Return Of Slavery

Damnesty. Life Takes ViZa. Whatever you call it, it's a secret agreement agreed upon behind closed doors; by officials who hold dual citizenship - officials whose companies have offices in Dubai, Kazakhstan, and who knows where else.

A cabinet level Secretary of Homeland Security who does not swear allegiance to the United States alone.

For now, everyone in America should watch the first half-hour of "The Handmaid's Tale", "Fortress", and THE STAND... if you still have rental money.


As before, so today.

"One wonders what Bush & Co. are setting up with the new Presidential Directive. What if, heaven forbid, some sort of catastrophic event were to occur just before the 2008 election? Bush could use this directive to suspend the election. This administration has gone to great lengths to remain in Iraq. It has built huge permanent military bases and pushed to privatize Iraq's oil. Bush and Cheney may be unwilling to relinquish power to a successor administration."

Marjorie Cohn

Even if it's Fred?

Saw Colbert mention throwing illegal aliens into a border fence made of jails last night. You were way ahead of him.

Colbert's a GENIUS and one of the reasons I'm proud to be an American.

BUT, if you can't trust NASA...

As for Duncan... I once read a short story about German teenagers drinking Absinthe in order to trip around Berlin during Hitler's rise to power. One night they end up at a brown shirt rally and as blitzed as he is, the main character; stunned by the waves of evil coming off Hitler (is this the Trip, or is THIS the TRIP?), and not knowing how true the vibe is (it WAS the 30's), decides to let the Cosmos deal with it. Felt JUST LIKE THAT when I found myself 5 feet away from Hunter as part of Lori Saldaña's victory party in 2006.

Never drank Absinthe, but when I had the vision of a border-long detention wall that doubled as a prison for unfortunates from either side, I knew who to name it after.
Duncan Hunter had already provided the reasons why.

Except for the Aliens, who are above the laws because they write them...

& waiting?

Two REMARKABLE moments have slapped me upside the head since your last comment. First, I was listening to George Knapp (C2C's best host) when someone called in and suggested that aliens were responsible for the Mayan calendar, the Long Count, AND it's end date of 12/21/2012.


Then Knapp stated the obvious. THAT HE'D NEVER HEARD THAT BEFORE. To his credit, he gave what, by definition, was a totally original thought - perhaps the first one since NOory began trying to tie whatever his guests were saying to Sitchin - its due, and congratulated his listener (was that you?) for contributing such a stunner to the program.

What was stunning (sorry Richard) was the realization that the OFFICIAL response would have been - has been - radically different when the suggestion was that aliens designed The Bible Code, or better yet, The Bible itself.

Yellow Book is more than David Carradine's current .com meal ticket.

Second. As I was starting this reply, I heard the words "Congressman Duncan Hunter" issuing from a local newscast behind me, and when I looked, IT WAS HIS SON. In what looked like the same suit I'd seen from three feet away. I had already told the Romney boys that maybe they should pay heed to this bit of Vietnam-era wisdom: "Like father, like son, like hell!", and I know exactly what to say to Hunter the younger.

But first, you should know that once, hitchiking up PCH - a dead ringer for Kwai Chang Caine - David Carradine pulled out from the health food store across from Alice's, paused as I stuck out my thumb, then floored his yellow Ferrari on the way to wherever Barbara Hershey was.

I forgave him.

As my father forgave me for burning my draft card, making the FBI show up on my Grandmother's doorstep with 'United States vs Michael Sterling' documents, and finally forcing him to admit the awful truth about Richard Nixon.

I think it was Steve Allen (Genius) who had a show where he talked to great men of history that begged the question "Who would YOU choose?" I would pass on Jesus and go straight to my father. Just to see him again, and apologize not for any of my actions, but for words said in anger, frustration. Anything I might have said that was rude, disrespectful, or may have hurt his feelings in any way. Those, I will tell any son who still has his father, are the words that count.

I will, however, close with a quote from a father-figure & grown son if ever there was one: “Unthinking obedience by young males to older males is the most highly prized of all conditioned reflexes within human, and hominid, societies.”THINK ABOUT IT. But count to 10 next time.
