Flynn pleads out–things get ugly

    In April of 2015, I put up a post titled THE SEARCH FOR A MAN ON HORSEBACK. It discussed the fact that there was a yearning (identified by others) for someone to ride in, take command of the government and get rid of the ‘bad guys’, Constitution and law be damned. Little did […]

How to Stop the Empire in your living room!

I spent my Saturday performing in Zuccotti Park/Liberty Square, the place where OWS started some five years ago. The newest version of HOW TO STOP THE EMPIRE WHILE KEEPING YOUR DAY JOB kicked off around 1 PM and I had a decent crowd of people there to listen. I brought new material in on the […]

I’m thinking that maybe it would be a […]

The northern hemisphere is currently home to record temperatures all over Europe. England had the hottest July day on record on the First […]

Lies we tell ourselves about climate change

There’s an article I’ve been looking at recently from Resilience dot org, and it weighs in heavily against Liberals–yes LIBERALS–about  the issue of global warming. Resilience is the website put up by people who are in the Peak Oil movement. The theory of Peak Oil has taken an undeserved shellacking of late, what with presidential bromides about […]
