Dog Killing Bastards Terrorize Americans

This video has been around for a while but I just heard about it. Killing dogs is a great way to terrorize the populace, cause it's like killing peoples' kids! As the man's reaction shows when he realizes they killed his two dogs, a caged pit bull and a corgie. And it's perfectly legal. Cops serving the search warrant found a tiny bit of marijuana. Thank heavens for Youtube! It makes cops know that they can't always kill in secret. (No wonder they are trying to outlaw citizens filming them.)

I remember when my a dog lover friend of mine and I went to see one of the Waco movies. When they showed the bodies of the six dead dogs in the yard, he had a screaming fit, yelling "Dog killers! Dog killers!" Americans do love their pups!

Gen. Petreaus Mass Killings & 2012 Election

Fred Branfman at Antiwar.com writes in Mass Assassinations Lie at the Heart of America's Military Strategy in the Muslim World Those responsible for it, primarily General Petraeus, are recklessly seeking short-term tactical advantage while making an enormous long-term strategic error that could lead to countless American deaths in the years and decades to come. General Petraeus must be replaced, and the U.S. military's policy of direct and mass assassination of Muslims ended. I agree. But let's also try him for war crimes so there's no chance he'll run for president in 2012 and bring mass killings to American soil. A "Waco" a day. Watching CSPAN's coverage of Glen Beck's Honor-a-thon (honor meaning kill as many Muslims and Mexicans as you can and be proud of it) at the Lincoln Memorial, I can only think Petraeus is the kind of fascist some of these people would like to be president of the "world's greatest military power." Wikipedia says he denies such ambitions as of March 2010. Just in case? President Obama put him in charge of Afghanistan in June 2010, making it difficult for him to desert his troops to run for President. But it means more practice in mass assassination in case the 58 year old decides to run in 2016.

The larger lesson of transcendence of the false icons of God and State is expressed in my 1977 song "Flowers and Stones" which contrasts 3rd chakra power and control issues to higher chakra creativity, love and higher consciousness.

Not A Victory - Iraq, Afghanistan, Iran

Turned on MSNBC for a change last week and caught live footage of the last American combat vehicles (allegedly) leaving Iraq. I was hit by a flood of memories of the trauma of the September 11th attacks being an excuse for war against others, the fear of escalation to a larger war, the day after day organizing of or attending of peace protests, watching the freaking neocons lie about the reasons for war day after day on cable television, seeing Iraq torn apart by conflicts among Iraqis resulting from the U.S. invasion, seeing tens of thousands of innocents killed.

And it's not over yet. Ariel Sharon said "Iran's next" way back in 2002 and the neocons and Israel have been pushing for the United States to attack it ever since. The scares come and the scares go - and back they come again. Now the U.S. congress is backing such an attack and Obama hardly resists it. He - or his handler Rahm Emanuel - may see it as a way to distract people from economic troubles and press down the government boot even harder. I wrote my song "Not A Victory" in 1999 as a march tune for the "Not a Victory" parade peace activists in Washington DC held after the end of the 1999 US/NATO attacks on Serbia. I proposed the title of the parade which then inspired the song.

"Pink Prison" - rock music video

This is a song I wrote in 1976 after visiting the pink painted bathroom (with its pink window bars) of a well known NYC rocker hangout. Kick ass feminist song. I should have gotten it to the RUNAWAYS back then. It would have been a rock classic by now. But crying over spilt milk is not my style.

Is this insect happy??

Is it "anthropomorphisation" to say that this insect looks happy? There's no doubt a dog can be happy. And I've see happy hamsters. So why not the insect? If the goal of universal consciousness is self-actualization and ultimately happiness, why not start at the lowest level of organization where it can create awareness and feelings? And the insect actually is a fairly high level of organization, compared to, say amoebas. I really have to catch up with what scientists are saying the same thing, since there were some say similar things 15 years ago (whose names I've forgotten), so there must be more today.

Free Staters Play at Porc Fest

The Free State Project is a bunch of libertarians, some of them secessionists, who are trying to get 20,000 libertarians to move to New Hampshire. More than 10,000 have pledged to move there and more than 800 have done so since 1973! Seven hundred attended their 2010 annual festival. N.H. is a bit too cold for me, but glad others are creating a great community with the wonderful goal of increasing liberty within one small state.

"Breakdown of Nations" music video

Summer time, and the heck with reality... Here's another one of my songs. Dedicate to Leopold Kohr, of course.
