18th CENTURY MILITIAS and MUSKETS explode in 21st CENTURY AMERICA Lest we forget, the opinions and decisions of the American populace outrank those of the President of the United States, the Congress of the United States and the United States Supreme Court. By the way, although sometimes it seems to be an exception, that outranked grouping includes the National Rifle Association. The Second Amendment of the Bill of Rights prohibits restrictions upon the possession of firearms by the general ...

V.A. WILL ARISE FROM PHOENIX Because of a plethora of administrative ? important, not medical ? acts of incompetency and possible crookery at the Phoenix, Arizona Veterans Administration Medical Center, the entire Department of Veterans Affairs ? both administrative and medical facilities ? quite unfairly and maliciously are being maligned, tainted, tarnished and tarred! The alleged management- malpractices and possible criminal activity emanating from Phoenix and other similarly charged V ...

UNITED STATES

of

THE ?LA-LA-LA?

 

?La-la-la, we can?t hear you,? is the refrain constantly repeated by the true power in this nation ? the best-heeled, the big bucks. That is the way it was in 1776, and that is the way it is today. All that business about free and equal people governing themselves has been pure farce from the start. Just ask the White men without property; ask the women of all stripes; ask the original landlords of this part of the world; ask the special immigrants from the ...

THE CROSS of sequoia

 

Chris Christie ? ?Christ??

It seems Chris Christie was destined for crucifixion.

Under ordinary circumstances, that would be a moot point.

There is not a tree extant capable of supporting such heft.

But, in Christie?s case, nature anticipated him.

The giant sequoia tree seems to have been designed to bear someone of Chris Christie?s avoirdupois.

Ordinarily, in crucifixions, each condemned has his own cross.

In Chris Christie?s case, however, although fruitlessly he attempt ...

doth

GULLIVERNOR SNARE

 

The boneheadedly stupid bridge caper ? perpetrated upon the citizens of New Jersey and New York -- is beginning to expose a seam of degradation that surely will put the kibosh on Governor Christie?s heretofore bright, shining future.

 

Although Governor Christie had the reputation of a crusading United States Attorney, ridding New Jersey of political corruption, he seems to have contracted a similar disease with which those he formerly prose ...

?METHINKS THE GUV

DOTH PROTEST TOO MUCH?

 

Shakespeare would salivate over the Jersey mess. Governor Chris Christie?s marathon news conference was an attempt by the besieged governor to clothe himself in angel?s garb, complete with harp and wings ? a most unholy and ridiculous get-up for the porcine politician. In the end, as we shall see, the governor will find himself with no clothes at all.

 

During the week of 9/11, last year, for four days, the New Jersey end of the George Washingto ...

?Now the New Year reviving old Desires.
The thoughtful Soul to Solitude retires,
Where the White Hand Of Moses on the Bough
Puts out, and Jesus from the Ground suspires.?

 

From: The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam

 

 

As continually we shed our moth-eaten cloak of racism, which tends to obscure the origin and fact of our racial admixture ? as we enter the fifthteenth year of this new millennium ? it is interesting to note the number of media and political celebrities who have been and ar ...

THAT AIN?T DYNASTY -- ? DUCK !!!?

 

What?s the big deal? At least Phil Robertson?s views on sexuality are universal and all-inclusive. What?s being lost in all the controversy, though, is his strangely localized concept of what it was like to be an African American in Apartheid America.

 

Robertson?s views on Black Folk   are wistful, 19 th century Stephen Foster:

 

Young folks roll on the little cabin floor,

?Tis summer, the darkies are gay. (Not necessarily)

The corn top?s ripe and ...

Subject: Curtis / Explaining My Super-Sensitivity

 

Many of us humans detest color-based racism. Those of us who are devoid of noticeable epidermal melanin find it personally difficult to ...
