Headline: Reckless Congress ‘Declares War’ on Russia


 It should be a headline across the United (for now) States! 

But it's just a headline of Antiwar.com article

War with Russia, isn't that special... wonder what it means??

Fighting for Our Freedom vs. Rank Sexism

If my sinus/chest cold ever clears up I'll be telling a story of rank and institutionalized sexism on a website which hundreds of millions of people - even journalists! - actually think is semi-credible.  Just one more place where women must fight for our freedom.  Though compared to giant militarized patriarchal nation states, it's a nick on a gnat's knee...

Put cameras on the damned cops, already....

Another disgusting show of injustice by the racist US court system in finding the officer not prosecutable for the killing of Michael Brown.  The more one hears about the prosecutor's grand jury manipulations, the more disgusted one gets.  (Released documents here.) We need cameras on these cops' bodies so we don't have to take their word for what really happened any more. But of course, that's only the beginning of what we need to end racist and patriarchal oppression. See secession.net

Update:   Obviously, the video of Michael Brown's stepfather screaming "Burn this bitch down" expressed the frustration of millions of blacks after centuries of slavery followed by Jim Crow oppression followed by "Daddy State" oppression (we'll give government jobs to your sell outs and feed your poor kids if you stay out of our neighborhoods, don't marry our daughters, and let us kill or imprison enough of your adult males to keep you under our white supremacist control.) And of course the cops DO let them burn down their own neighborhoods and businesses in order to teach them a lesson.It happened in the 1960s and it happened in Ferguson. (In 1992 after Rodney King police acquittal, the cops weren't quite as much in control in Los Angeles; rioters burned down a lot of stores in half white neighborhoods, including the one I'd lived in a few years earlier.)

Bullets or missle brought down MH-17?

Geez, they only now are collecting the carcass of the Malaysian commercial airliner MH-17 that was shot down over the Ukraine in July, 2014.The Western media continues to scream that Ukrainian rebels armed with a Russian ground to air missile did it. Even Al-Jazeera just assumes it's a missile from Ukrainian rebels. Both the US and Russia are stonewalling/taking their time on handing over satellite and radar evidence. 

The RT video below presents the Russian view that it was 30 millimeter bullets from a Ukrainian fighter jet that shot down the plane. Most impressive is photographs of the very noticeable vapor trail such a missile would leave, video of Russians using such bullets to shoot into some old planes, comparison of the damage to that on MH-17, and eye witnesses who are sure they heard a plane.  There are a couple questionable assertions I didn't bother to check and there's a noticeable lack of some radar evidence presented last summer indicating an aircraft.

There's been lots of time since July to tamper with the evidence in the field; and there will be more opportunities once it gets into the hands of the Ukrainian government whose security apparatus has been infiltrated by Ukraine's Right Sector neofascists. Most infamously Andriy Parubiy who was a top security secretary from after the February coup to August 2014 when he mysteriously was driven from power. But now he's head of the People's Front party that just got 22% of the seats in Ukraine's Parliament. They have their own military council of which he's part.

Hope there are some honest people watching the evidence every minute. If there are they'll probably turn up dead in a field with a big fat round in their head. 

It's strange that with all the exposes about right-wing white power ultra-nationalist neo-fascist violent crazies threatening the US and Europe, when one like the Right Sector actually becomes prominent in a government, the US/NATO pretend it's not a factor. They can't admit even to themselves the possibility that a Right Sector leader/militant ordered or facilitated the shoot down of the plane to make Russia look bad and get US/NATO reinforcement.Or maybe they've figured it out and thus are keeping the Ukrainians at arms length, using them just as pawns in US/NATO plans to further crush Russia and it's many growing alliances worldwide.  

I hate power politics!!  But every now and then you have to exercise your mind and write about it.

It's a scary world we live in when people can shoot down a commercial plane and giant powers and their underlings can suppress evidence.  And these scary people still have lots of nukes and continue to bleed us dry.

"I Chose the Apple"

Been wanting to put something short and happy up, and this is it.  An almost 40 year old song of mine that still says it all!

New Zealand feminists fight sexism on Youtube

Doing some research on the vicious harassment of women online, done largely by sexually frustrated and emotionally disturbed males, especially jobless english footballers from lower middle class neighborhoods and asperger-afflicted americans in their mother's basements. Found this funny video reply to a Robin Thicke song/video I never heard of before. His words were nearly unintelligible but these women Law Students from the University of Auckland in New Zealand get their message across loud and clear.  I have a loose definition of feminist myself: any woman who refuses to put up with male bull in any part of her life.


Speaking of "castrating females" - this one just won a seat in the U.S. Senate!

Scariest Holloween movie...

Wandering the dials for good scary movies tonight when came across the scariest one I've seen this week. A Turner Classic Movies short between two old horror movies. But this is the one that will give me nightmares... Not the exact one below, but close enough.  Thousands of volunteers and hospitals that can be set up in four hours outside the blast zone. Americans must be prepared for the inevitable. Blah blah.  Of course today they intend to just spring that war on us. There's just too dang many of us anyway!
