Another Slow Rush to Judgment

E-mail Print PDF

Once again, Republican party opinion leader Rush Limbaugh leads the way for all who lend him their ears -- you'd have to, of course.  He's deaf from all the drugs that he took.  To get back at us for his lapse in judgment, his slow-catching-on, he's been lashing our ears all along, trying to blow them out on us, too.  He's been showing the party faithful how to be virtuous, how to be courageous, how to verbally lash a young woman.  Finally, he hit an uncallused part of our ears, got a reaction -- we are suddenly surprised.

Ol' Rush has been banking fortunes out of shoveling crap into our ears for some time.  We give him permission to do so every time we turn on the radio, invite him in for a while.  He's at home money-grubbing, spewing lies, and whipping out racist slurs, but Rush is flexible. He's added a new skill:  Skinning a young woman alive, using only sharpened words.  Quite a demonic resume you have there, Rush.  Happy with your list of achievements?  He laughs us off, of course, all the way to the bank.

Springtime for Grassroots Boycotts

E-mail Print PDF

A battle over Irish agrarian tenants' rights 132 years ago, in 1880, contributed a valuable concept to the world, adding a noble word into the language, from an ignoble affair: Boycott.  It would surface again, 90 years later, strongly so, with Cesar Chavez in the 1970s, in nonviolent protests once galvanizing and unifying farm workers.

Chavez's birthday is coming up, by the way, March 31st, and is celebrated and observed in a handful of states.  It is one more good and fine day worthy of keeping alive in the hearts of everyday working people.  But, as you know, we have no need of more superficial treatments of giants who have walked once in our land, no more special, red-lettered holidays to be fluttered and fizzled about, no more days to be frittered away selling us more merch, or more kitsch, without any of us ever knowing why it's This-or-That Day.

Radio Rope-a-Dope Rush

E-mail Print PDF

"Prostitute" and "slut," new low-blows for Rush Limbaugh, leveled at a female student.  Now we know how low you can go, Limbo.  Now we know how tone deaf a millionaire radio lummox can be -- although, to be fair, Rush blew out his hearing long ago from drug abuse:  Had to get implants to use as his substitute ears, while earning millions making sounds.  That should help you understand his negative ability in clear thinking and in making good, capable judgments.

Now, a wake-up call has been clocked straight at Rush, with two sleep-products providers breaking the nightmare of advertising on his show.  You should call up and visit Sleep Train and Sleep Number, thank them profusely for starting a mini-ripple of standing up for sanity, for voting against this pinheaded prattler's program of hate-mongering, deception, and lies.  With any decent luck, and, with plain decency, other advertisers will also flee, sink this tempest in his own teapot, this Tea Party collaborator.

Are We There Yet?

E-mail Print PDF

Are we there yet? Our / journey's been two centuries / and more - seems longer.

Our tales were once told / by common folk, smart and plain. / They honored this land.

2 or 3 trillion / Soc-Sec bucks shiver, are gone. / Who is lying more?

How? The vault was locked! / Reassurances, like wine, / flow down hill, down line.

Occupy marchers / call our minds back to this task: / Remember People!

Show Us Where It Says That - Part 2

E-mail Print PDF

The problem with paying attention to your surroundings is that, sooner or later, you're going to want it all to start making sense.  We are pattern-seekers, we humans, and love amazing ourselves with patterns and meanings we can conjure and overlay, making sense of all we see.

The process is on autopilot, works right in our heads -- even if the pattern perceived is arbitrary, unreal, fabricated, made up whole cloth, created from lies, brewed from bad brain chemicals, slipped in by hypnosis, installed via mental illness, or sent running in by nightmare.
