Will Malaysia Cause the Truth to Come Out about Flight MH17?

Remember the downing of the Malaysia Boeing 777 jet MH17 over Ukraine? I can understand those that don't, alot of shit has happened since July 17th.

It was obvious from the start that it wasn't the separatists that shot it down. All you had to do was listen to Obama and Kerry and reverse their lies, not to mention the entire ruling class/state media. .

Propaganda Alert, Mainstream Corporate Media - ISIS. BEWARE!!

Just take a look at the mainstream corporate media and how it's reporting about ISIS. Just take a look at who is saying we should go after ISIS. People like John McCain, John Bolton, Rick Perry, Bill Kristol and the neocons, Fox News. The mainstream corporate media lies and the neocons are NOT humanitarians! It's not like Obama and his brand of imperialists are humanitarians either but people should know for damn sure that the neocons don't have any interest in saving people's lives. Does that not tell you something?!!!

Say No to War with Russia

I'm seeing alot of writers in the alternative media warn of a possible WWIII with Russia which could include the use of nuclear weapons.  The most likely scenario would be the U.S./NATO imperialist war machine conducting a false flag operation while blaming Russia, then unleashing a preemptive first strike at Russia in accordance with established Pentagon plans for a preemptive first strike nuclear attack on Russia.

glorifying war is a sin

I have several old friends who turned into rwnjs. One of them, who never had a political thought in his head, married into republican money and now he is one. He disowned me when he found out I wasn't, and we were once best friends (we hitchhiked across country together when we were teenagers). Another of them is a staunchly pro-military rw christian who served in the navy decades ago and still can't get the martial music out of her head. She hasn't disowned me but is mystified why I don't see everything in the same simplistic terms that she does. It's all very simple to her.

She has included me on her mailing list and is in the habit of blasting the list with rightwing spam. We have had issues with it over the years. I resent being sent such mindless crap and have explained that to her...to no avail. I still get blasted with it. I know, I should just not open the email...but I can't help myself. That she keeps sending me this stuff, knowing full well how I feel about it, pisses me off. We've been over all this quite a few times as I have tried valiantly to make her see that Jesus wouldn't approve of all the killing.

The Neverending American War on the World

The fun never stops. The revenge for 9/11 will continue for this century. Perhaps it will be another Hundred Years War.

In a Senate hearing today, a Pentagon Special Operations Chief told Senators that the war OF terror will continue for at least 10 to 20 more years and more likely decades, it was confirmed it has no geographic limit including this country, i.e., it truly is global, the AUMF from 2001 is the authorization for all of it, it can include people not even born yet and it includes associated forces of Al Qaeda, i.e., anyone the Pentagon or CIA think is remotely affiliated with the terrorist group created by the CIA. In the hearing, John McCain was incredulous that the Pentagon took such a broad view and said “None of us” who voted for the law in 2001 “could have envisioned [granting] authority [to strike] in Yemen and Somalia.”

Boston: The Unraveling and a Plea for the Healing of Our Society

I find it hard to write about anything after this happened. Boston is a great city I had the pleasure to visit in a field trip in 2006 while I was in school. There was so much life in that city and there still is despite this attack. It's still affected me even though I don't live there because of that fond memory. Senseless acts of violence like this shouldn't happen. It's hard enough just to get by.

I feel a sense of panic and uneasiness as if the fabric of society is breaking and it is; all the record inequality fueling human breakdown; the wars; the bombing of other countries fueling human breakdown. Human breakdown is caused by those that show indifference to their state of being thus breaking down barriers of sanity that keeps one non violent and functioning. Nothing excuses these actions whatsoever and I don't care about the reasoning of whoever did this; it’s despicable and abhorrent act of violence that killed a child and 2 other human beings and more than 170 were injured many permanently disabled.

That being said, we can try to change the society that breeds these types of people and actions instead of enabling the void. That's what protects people from terrorism and acts of violence in the aggregate. It may have been impossible to stop this incident, and not all can be prevented. However, given the overall breakdown of society and the marginal extremes that causes within the minds of the population, I have to think every one of our problems contributed to it. Every few months there is either a shooting or something like this. That's why I talk of the unraveling of society.

Sunday April 7, 2013: Best of Up With Chris Hayes Tweets

Well this is the last best of before Steve Kornacki takes over for Chris. He will either do all right or I will become a thorn in his side, specifically if it's like the Cycle which is God Awful. I don't want to see Toure or anyone else on #Uppers.

First off, Alexis Goldstein was robbed of the best of #Uppers segments. She should have been featured prominently, because she is one of the best ever to appear on the show. I hope she still appears on the show with Steve Kornacki.

Saturday March 30, 2013: Best of Up with Chris Hayes Tweets

This weekend was the best of #Uppers from Chris Hayes's excellent statement calling out liberal hypocrisy on drones to where he covered the #mintthecoin move the White House refused like a bunch of losers, because they wanted to play make believe so they could go after SS like they are doing now. Stephanie Kelton aka @deficitowl was on that show and was great. I also got a RT from the producer of #Uppers when I mentioned her being on the show and how I pushed for that so I think we will be seeing he again which is good.
