I’d be willing to bet every sturnii that I have that your run of the mill, non fact checking, “No true Scotsman,” white, conservative over the age of 50 would grow beet red in the face if you asked them what they think of Jerad Miller and Amanda Miller this morning. Curiously, noted conservative forums have grown very silent about the gun violence murder of two Las Vegas Police officers on Sunday.To cover this case, as a journalist meant that I had to wait for as many details about the couple to be confirmed before writing anything about their murderous ammosexual anti-government rampage. Mercifully, only three people died at their cowardly hands the ultimate tragedy for the families of the victims. What I do get from the events that unfolded midday in Las Vegas, Nevada is that this young white couple opened a door into the minds of the “victimized” white conservative and what these people think. Their burning hatred for government rules and regulations, that for the first time in American history rip open the protective veneer of their unearned privilege and expose them to the carnivorous sink or swim ethics of capitalism, are naked and on public display for all of Terra to see. And of course, Jim Hoft got it wrong, horribly wrong.

The truth of the matter is my job is very easy this morning; all I have to do is report what is known and verified. Unlike conservative bloggers and forum posters to write this story I don;t have to make wild assumptions or create lies out of whole cloth. Jerad Miller and Amanda Miller are anti-government “patriots” who said things that the majority of blog commenters at Breitbart would agree with. This couple did things that many of the commenters at Mark Edward Noonan’s BlogsforVictory have said they wanted to do for quite some time. It shatters the notions that conservatives are anti-government citizens who will have to be pushed to violence. Destroyed is the conservative ideal, tragically, that a concealed carry permit will save your life and make you a hero in such a scenario. In the end old world thinking, a male dominated notion of how society operates, got the man in the Wal-Mart killed. A brief scanning of Men in Black [See the clip posted above for clarification] might have saved that guy’s life and made him get the heck out of the store or better start with Amanda Miller and then turn his all powerful weapon Jerad. Having a gun means nothing if you aren’t going to clear your head of the bullshit that this group is harmless and that gender isn’t capable of “x”. But enough of that this guy will have Eternity to ponder the “what the fucks” of what happened to him in a flash of gunpowder. And so nobody goes there, this isn’t a false flag operation brought to you by the Obama Administration, but it might be the start of death panels. And no this isn’t the time to change the subject to what some black person in Chicago did this past weekend with a gun, because guns are still the problem.

Here’s a snippet from Jerad’s TEA Party inspired manifesto:

We can hope for peace. We must, however, prepare for war. We face an enemy that is not only well funded, but who believe they fight for freedom and justice. Those of us who know the truth and dare speak it, know that the enemy we face are indeed our brothers. Even though they share the same masters as we all do. They fail to recognize the chains that bind them. To stop this oppression, I fear, can only be accomplished with bloodshed. May the best men of our beloved nation stand and fight tyranny, without fear and without regret. May we stand proud as free men instead of kneeling as slaves. May we offer our children a free and just world with our blood, sweat and tears as payment. Let our wives and lovers take vengeance upon our enemies in our absence. We cannot fail in this endeavor of Liberty, if we do we risk leaving our orphaned children to the will of tyrants. We, cannot with good conscience leave this fight to our children, because the longer we wait, our enemies become better equipped and recruit more mercenaries of death, willing to do a tyrants bidding without question. I know you are fearful, as am I. We certainly stand before a great and powerful enemy. I, however would rather die fighting for freedom, than live on my knees as a slave. Let it be known to our children’s children that free men stood fast before a tyrants wrath and were found victorious because we stood together. That we all cast aside our petty differences and united under the banner of Liberty and Truth. May future generations look back upon this time in history with awe and gratitude, for our courage to face tyranny, so that they could live happy and free.

Now does any of that shit sound familiar???

hindsight 2237
In Hindsight
Conservative America you now own what lives in the Souls of more than half of those who claim your ideology. Personally, I’d rather be associated with the disabled, single mothers on Food Stamps, elderly citizens trying to maintain their dignity, Latinos, Blacks, Gays, Lesbians, Tansgender people and anyone else who wants to live in a diverse and inclusive society than people who think their religion and their guns are going to save them both on Terra and in the Afterlife. Conservatives, butt hurt by how obviously one of them this couple was, will deny any of the glaring and consistent connections to their causes the Millers had. Their wanting to live by the Constitution, their joining the “fight” in Bunkerville, NV to support Cliven Bundy, their joyous praise of themselves being willing to die for future generations. Yeah, check, check and check. This sounds like Neocon and Retired Spook and Jeremiah all rolled up into two pasty skinned bigoted and angry pair of failures who preferred to die than to live. Are these the death throes of conservatism in America? Probably not. But what I do think this is is a trend toward people who have nothing who need to find someone anyone to blame for their failure. It’s not the imagined thought police of the US DOJ that will do the most harm to anti-government conservatives it is the fact that these people cannot rationally think for themselves.

Pax Terra!

I ask a lot of questions in my job and no one can ever say that I am not opinionated. I am an unapologetic Progressive/Socialist. I think women should rule Terra for the next 500 just so they can formulate a plan to fix all the ills that men have done in the first 6000 years of civilization. I believe no child on Terra should ever go to bed hungry, thirsty or in fear that someone will come to their home and take them away. My beliefs motivate me to attempt great things every day but in the great scheme of thing I have no idea really if I have the right answers. Like everyone else I just know what makes me feel good–in the present. I say all of this begging a question, “Why can’t there be peace on Terra?” That’s a question lawyers, politicians, doctors, priests, rabbis, imams, the blind, the lazy, the rich, the poor, men, women and children have been asking since time immemorial. I still look for some clue to the answer to that nagging question everyday. This morning I got a fleeting glimpse of the shadow of the answer as is escaped out a window on the Internet from a young woman Tempest Adore:

This was originally meant to be a Facebook status, but I got so into it, and 6 pages is a bit too much to post on Facebook. Honestly, I haven’t read over it, I just wrote it and posted it. I also started to falter towards the end, my mindset seemed to have changed, so I might go back and edit. And it’s not complete, I stopped mid-sentence, so I have to add the ending.

Seriously, what is going on with the world lately? America especially. I have witnessed more racism, homophobia, religious intolerance, bigotry, hypocrisy, and just plain ignorance and hate more lately than ever. We are all people.

When it comes to homophobia.. gay, straight, bi, trans, pan, poly, whatever: we’re all looking for love. Where we find it shouldn’t matter to anyone else who isn’t directly involved. It does NOT affect you, STOP affecting them. If you don’t like it, don’t engage in it. Don’t gawk at it. If you go to an art store and don’t like one of the paintings, do you FIGHT to have it removed? No, you move on and let others who think and see differently enjoy it. Love is Love. In a world full of war and hate and violence and despair, we should be promoting and fighting for EVERY kind of love, instead of fighting against it and causing more anguish.

When it comes to race.. we’re all fucking human. I understand being patriotic, but EVERY race has done amazing world-changing things; EVERY race has done horrible, evil things; EVERY race is just trying to live, the same as every OTHER race, just in their own way. Who cares?!

When it comes to religion.. faith can be a very powerful thing that saves lives and helps people find themselves and be at peace with themselves. However, faith is personal. EVERYONE’s faith is different, even if you share the same religious beliefs. If people are at peace with themselves, that is all that matters. Just because they don’t believe the same as you, or the same way that you do, does not make them wrong. We only have so many years to live; let people do it their own way. THEIR afterlife is not YOUR concern. And, even if by some chance one specific religion is right and all the others ARE wrong, let those people find that out themselves. I’m sorry if this offends anyone, but I do not believe ANY god would turn someone away simply because they lived their life believing in their own way, finding their own faith. There are SO MANY different religions, they ARE NOT and should NEVER BE law. No matter WHAT, it is never OK to force your views on others, and make them live their lives YOUR way. Nor is it OK to hate them, or shun them, or disrespect them, simply because they are finding their happiness a different way than you.

When it comes to bigotry.. everything I’ve said above applies. If everyone were the same, we would not have come this far. And honestly, if you have so much hate, or fear, or sadness inside of you (which you must to be so disapproving), maybe you should take a step back and realize that those people ARE happy, why aren’t you? What are you missing from your own life that you’re trying to fill by controlling, judging, or sabotaging others’?

As for the hypocrisy.. seriously? No one is perfect. And the main point of this, NO ONE IS THE SAME. You cannot blame someone for making the same mistakes you have. Even if you made them in different ways. We all sin, and no one sin is greater than any other, mainly because no one person is greater than any other. The world, and life, is not simple; it is not black and white; it is not meant to be simply right or wrong. Life itself is a gray area. Don’t justify your sin and disparage another’s, because everyone has different reasons and thoughts and beliefs and feelings. What is right for you may not be right for another. You can not forgive yourself without in turn forgiving others.
 
 

By far this is the best explanation of a path to real happiness that I have ever come across. It has brightened my day and it is early here on the East Coast of the United States as I wrap up my vacation in DC. So today I, while among the Living, will share the love. You never know I might be the guy who buys you a cold drink on a day when it’s going to be a sweltering 100 plus degrees out. Or I might just be the guy who thanks you and listens while we ride on the Metro. Either way from what tempest Adore has written I understand that love is more than desire it is a willingness to give up a little of yourself to learn about another.

Pax Terra!

CHECKERS-MATE: HOW MITT ROMNEY’S FEAR OF RELEASING TAXES RESONATES BACK TO 1952

Posted in 2012 US ELECTION, CHECKERS SPEECH, POLITICS with tags , , on 20/09/2012 by sarahbloch

I begin with a video that is a linking to the present election from sixty years ago:

That speech given in the depths of the Red Scare age of 1952 was an attempt to save the political career of a man Richard M Nixon from one of the two possible scandals that could destory him. In this case it was fiscal malfeasance in a political campaign. The only other thing that could take you down in that age was a sexual scandal. Nixon, history bears, out was more interested in money and power than the ever open doors of sex that power could swing wide.

A full generation later Nixon would come before the American people again and offer this after damaging the GOP brand and the Office of the President nearly irreparably:

The GOP without Ronald Reagan would have been a dead party. My partner in crime Fred Schwartz thinks that Reagan’s ascendancy was simply a brief moment of remission before the full cancer of patriotic tribalism that is manifest in the form of the far Right and the TEA Party today set in for the kill. President Clinton will be hailed in the coming decades by historians as both the savior and the euthanizer of the GOP as it exists today.

The Clinton eight years showed the Right what a center-Left President could actually do. The Right still stuck on the arcane notions of race, gender and foreign policy of the early 20th Century was in full rictus by 1999. A new millennium was coming and though they were not prepared they were given a gift of Al Gore to run against in 2000. While they could not unite their base and excite them with their policy they could enjoy the hard work of the Clinton Administration which had wiped out the deficit and paved a smooth road for the US economy to roll down for many years to come.

Then came the blowback of 9/11. It gave the Right in power in Washington a golden opportunity; a credit card with no limits that they could use to fight the sort of unlimited and unchecked war against an enemy that couldn’t raise nation state level materiel to fight back and was seen as less than human, because of their actions, by neoconservatives and the American public. Islam, with all that funny looking Arabic script and flags and rock throwing and odd holidays was utterly foreign to Americans and remained so after the World Trade Center buildings collapsed. Now they were more than the “Other” they were the “Anti-Christian Enemy Other”; bigger even than a Soviet Union of the past and its nuclear and communist double threat. It was said in the halls of power many years before the disaster of intelligence in the late summer of 2001, “You can convert an atheist with fear, you can only convert a Muslim with a bomb.”

The neoconservative path taken in Iraq cost the GOP its future but it assured its present from 2001 until 2009. Never were the American people any fearful or kind to one another than between 12 September 2001 and 1 November 2001. The holidays of that year were solemn confirmations of American patriotism; the Super Bowl, number thirty-six, played in the winter of 2002 inside the Louisiana Superdome, was a festival of neoconservative patriotism that would have made Leni Riefenstahl weep with pride. By the summer of 2004 the American people were sick of lies and sick of war but tradition and convention could not allow the change of captains in the midst of a storm. There never were any weapons of mass destruction at Saddam Hussein’s fingertips in iraq, but this didn’t matter. War was necessary to the neoconservative goals at the time so the most powerful military on Terra was used as a political tool.

A new enemy spawn in the womb of American capitalism would begin the inevitable decline and fall of conservatism in America. On 15 September 2008 the global economy was on the brink of total collpase due to the paralysis of the credit markets. Many conservative pundits have opined in the past four years that a wide range of issues caused the collapse and none of them including the debunked canard regarding the Community Reinvestment Act were responsible. The markets neared collapse for the same reason a gambler out of control at the craps table loses all their money–the belief that they can get it all back with one more roll of the dice. Greed as fictional character Gordon Gecko said in the film Wall Street, was good.

Now you find yourselves in a new America. An America that despite setbacks, crimes against its own people, unnecessary wars fought for profit and power and the denial of civil rights to many because of race, gender, and sexual preference is still closer to the dream of Robert Kennedy and Martin Luther King than it ever has been. This is tue despite the exposure of bigotry being alive and well in the minds of millions of white Americans who wonder where their golden age of the 1950s went. Gone are the strict social conventions of 1952. Gone are the snickering deputies with hoses and dogs. Gone are the bonuses for one race because of their open bigotry to another. The golden age of hate has been replaced with the 24 hour news cycle and today you are in the first years of the golden age of wireless. Freedom in America, the concept of being able to chart your own path, is literally within the grasp of more diverse groups than ever. Once unquestionable monoliths of power like the government, the church and even big time college football programs have all been tainted by scandal. The once most marginalized group of people in America, African-Americans, have seen one of their own rise to the very office that Nixon was willing to violate the law to keep. Conservatives fighting the dark specter with the scythe that comes for them are marhsalling all their breath and strength to make one last desperate attempt to hold back an impossibly large and energized tide.

Today you have a choice that harkens back to the speech given this week 60 years ago by the man who nearly destroyed the presidency. Mitt Romney has given Americans a glimpse into his character that was never seen in Nixon. Romney, a man born of humble parents who did take the help the government offered to become a thriving success, now holds those who wish to have that American dream in contempt. I have no doubt that if America were fully run as a corporation intended to turn a profit vice helping its citizens to thrive Mitt Romney would be the de facto choice. However, I feel that Romney’s lack of character, that centimeter of ambition that makes him reach a meter too far is what makes his ambition for the office too great to make him fit for it. Had the GOP candidate for the office of president two months ago allowed sunshine to disinfect whatever was in his income tax returns from the early part of the last decade and turned away from the pandering to the far Right he would have, after the initial shock, brought enough disaffected Democrats and Independents into his camp and the knowledge that Obama would lose would have brought the far Right bigots who hide behind a veneer of Christian belief to the polls in droves.

The doubling down on bigotry and negative campaigning coupled with Romney’s choice of Paul Ryan as his running mate is the final poison delivered into the collapsing veins of a dying GOP. Romney will fail in his bid. He will fail not because he wants the power too much but that he does not have any ideology that drives his campaign to understand that the center is what must be listened to for any person to rise to America’s highest office and his defeat will be the declaration of the time and date of the death of the GOP– 6 November 2012 22h 35m EDT.
