It's time to claim our Peace Dividend

It's time to claim our Peace Dividend

We need to beat swords into plowshares.

We need to beat swords into plowshares.

A program for real change...

What we need is a "21st Century Full Employment Act for Peace and Prosperity" which would make it a mandatory requirement that the president and Congress attain and maintain full employment.

Big Bird and racist dirty birds

Public Radio in their fund-raising makes the same claims as Fox News about being "fair" and "balanced."

However, I find it very interesting that National Public Radio and Minnesota Public Radio give all kinds of coverage to the racists and bigots in their challenges against Affirmative Action but not one single story has been done about the struggles of people demanding that Affirmative Action be enforced.

Three examples here in Minnesota:

The Bemidji Regional Event Center (now called the Sanford Center) where Bemidji and Beltrami County officials actually told Native Americans to stay on the reservations.


The building of the new Viking Stadium where Democratic Governor Mark Dayton has ignored all demands to enforce Affirmative Action.


The huge new bridge that is going to be built over the St. Croix River where Democratic Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton is working in league with Republican Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker to ignore the enforcement of Affirmative Action.

Another thing; we see where this racist challenge to Affirmative Action in Texas has become a major issue yet not one single member of the Mainstream Media including NPR and MPR will pose questions to the presidential candidates or any other candidates regarding their views on Affirmative Action (Federal Executive Order Number 11246).

I find it amazing we have a focus on Big Bird by the MainStream Media but don't know where any of the candidates stand when it comes to enforcing Affirmative Action.

Could it be that the MainStream Media and the political process in this country are dominated by a bunch Wall Street serving racist dirty birds?

The face of an Obama sock puppet...

Barack Obama, the original Matchstick Man (a con artist), has his army of sock puppets working the Mainstream Media and the Internet:

sock puppet:

An account made on an internet message board, by a person who already has an account, for the purpose of posting more-or-less anonymously.

sock puppet:

A fake personality, usually a 'friend' or 'sister,' created by a drama queen/king for the sake of defending him/herself against others in an online forum.

Someone who might be an actual person but behaves like the above, defending someone who really deserves no defense.

sock puppet:

Used to describe a person who has no original thoughts, opinions, or ideas of his/her own. Instead they regurgitate the "party-line" or talking points of others; usually of their particular political party or candidate.

Perhaps we should bestow some kind of award for "Obama sock puppet of the week."

Something like, the "Dumb Donkey Sock Puppet Award."

I should point out that not everyone, nor even most, people who support and will vote for Obama are sock puppets--- they are victims of Obama and his team (many very well paid--- some volunteers) of sock puppets.

Perhaps some creative artist or cartoonist could create an illustration of a sock puppet using an old sock on Obama's hand?

Maybe we could even get one of the sweatshops in Haiti enabled by Bill Clinton's philanthropic foundation and enforced by U.N. troops to produce sock puppets real cheap?

We could donate the proceeds from the sales of these Cholera laden sock puppets produced in the free enterprise zones of Haiti to George Lakoff for free distribution of his books to expand Obama's army of sock puppets.

In fact, let me present the first "Dumb Donkey Sock Puppet Award" to the grand-daddy of all Obama sock puppets: George Lakoff; for making hundreds of thousands of dollars peddling his new book supplementing "Don't Think Of An Elephant"--- "The Little Blue Book: The Essential Guide to Thinking and Talking Democratic."
