ONGOING THOUGHTS!

Aug. 27, 2015  By Jack Jodell.

I have had several recurrent and ongoing thoughts I will share with you in this brief post, along with some very relevant quotes I have picked up recently.  

Our woefully unproductive Congress should give all of us in the 99% MAJORITY an immediate MASSIVE tax refund for all the time and the  millions of taxpayer dollars they have WASTED on non-productive and worthless committee hearings and investigations which have been held during the past two sessions. These exhibits of blatantly partisan grandstanding have yielded absolutely nothing of any value whatsoever.

Here’s an idea: we should fine every single Congressperson $1,000 for each day they only put in 3 or 4 days (instead of the normal 5 which has been the standard for working people for decades) while Congress is officially in sMUD RYANsession. I don’t care whether it would take a presidential executive order to achieve this, but something MUST be done to ensure that Congress is no longer a group of slackers getting paid $175,000 or more annually for working 9nly part-time! The money should be turned over to the U.S. Treasury to increase funding for Social Security benefits and for Medicare. This 3 day work week is an absolute insult to all business owners and to every worker in this country, and it must come to a screeching halt! Let’s see these phony deficit hawks like Paul Ryan object to THAT!

 There are those, particularly in the Tea Party-infested, now reactionary Republican Party, who insist that our government be run like a business.  Of course, those of us living in the real world know how absurd a notion that is. For, as an anonymous caller to the Stephanie Miller show I saw back on Aprilfree speech 6 noted so perfectly, “Business USES people to make money. Government uses MONEY to help PEOPLE.”  Those who want to continually cut government spending and make everyone but billionaires to live on a forced austerity budget (like the notorious reactionary Paul Ryan has been trying to implement) are equally ridiculous and wrong in their belief. As noted progressive radio commentator THOMand FREE SPEECH TV show host Thom Hartmann has observed quite often, “Never in the history of the world has anyone cut their way to prosperity!” Still, there are millions of fools who believe that austerity budgets are the only way to go. We’ll nrver convince these morons, so we’ll just have to ccept P.T. Barnum’s adage that “there’s a sucker born every minute.” Poor imbeciles- it’s really too bad that they are being allowed to make so many people’s lives so miserable!

As I view the list of prospective candidates for President in 2016 from all parties, especially those with any real chance of winning, I see absolutely NONE in the Republican Party and very few worth voting for in the Democratic Party. While Martin O’Malley holds a few attractive positions, I BIDENdon’t believe he has a snowball’s chance in hell of surviving the primary season and winning the general election. I don’t even consider Jim Webb or Lincoln Chafee to have any viability at all. That leaves only Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, or Bernie Sanders as potential Democratic winners. While I like Biden in many areas, I think he is joining the fray far too late and would never HILLARY R 1be able to overcome the following already built by his rivals. As for Clinton, she has already amassed a formidable stockpile of funds, but I really don’t believe she can extricate herself from her ties with Wall Street enough to really deliver for the 99% MAJORITY who desprtately needs help. Not only that, but she is always seemingly swimming in tidal waves of negative controversy. I have no doubt that she would be fully capable for the job, and recognize how important it would be for us to finally elect a woman President, but I still believe BERNIE SANDERSSANDERS would be best for the overwhelming majority of the country. He has proposed fabulous and much-needed projrcts to rebuild our crumbling infrastructure and has also proposed a very fair and sensible overhaul of our tax system. Both plans would stimulate our economy, produce greatly needed, good-paying jobs, and would reverse the horrible wealth disparity which has risen steadily since the 1980s. THAT is what America needs right now and heading into the future, so THAT is why Bernie Sanders remains my choice for President in 2016!

Begging Forgiveness for Punishing the Innocent

Aug. 24, 2015  By Jack Jodell (in association with BURR DEMING of FAIR AND UNBALANCED.COM – see my Blohroll at bottom right hand column).

Happy start of the new week, readers! In today’s gem, our podcaster exraordinaire BURR DEMING gives us a valuable lesson in personal character – and reflects upon some who displayed it – and one who didn’t.     

BURR!In Burr’s own words, “Policy is the key part of government. Policy determines what works and what doesn’t, who benefits and who is left behind, who pays and who doesn’t…

I like policy. I like those who study policy. I wish those in charge of policy would exhibit more interest in the effectiveness of policy, in the impact of policy on actual people…

My interest in policy vanishes when life, death, and punishmentare abusively handled.”

MEET…THE REFUSERS!

Aug. 20, 2015  By Jack Jodell.  

HIPPIESWhen I first came of age culturally, back in the mid-1960s, nonconformity, protest, and rebellion were the order of the day for us in the emerging youth counteculture. From long hair on men, to bell bottom pants, to flowered shirts, to beads, to granny glasses, to U.S. flag patches sewn onto our jeans, to tie-dyed tee shirts – if it was wild, shocking, and different, it was definitely IN! Music was an essential part of my life (and still is to this day). Beat, rhythm, and melody were vital, but a song’s MESSAGE (lyrical content) was definitely the most important component of all. This was true of every genre in those days, from folk ballads to country, from driving rock to soul to pop. Protest music laden with anti-war and civil rights themes was really the rage for a DYLANlong time, and it was evident in songs written and/or performed by Bob Dylan; Peter, Paul, and Mary; Joan BEATLESBaez; Judy Collins; Joni Mitchell; The Beatles; The Rolling Stones; The Kinks; The Doors; Buffalo Springfield; The Turtles; The Supremes; Stevie Wonder; The SUPREMESTemptations; Neil Yong; Sonny and Cher; Arlo Guthrie; The Who; Country Joe and the Fish; and literally dozens of others. It was the birth of a new counterculture, and what an exciting time to be alive!

Protest music tended to recede once the Vietnam War ended. In its place came disco, funk,  southern-based redneck rock, heavy metal, reggae, techmo, smooth jazz, hip-uop, and other genres. But protest music hasn’t entirely disappeared. A new generation of dedicated idealists has now taken up the cause and is once more pumping out wild, dynamic, driving, and relevant  tunes. One example would be Rooftop Revolutionaries. Another one that I will focus on here and now is called  The Refusers.

The REFUSERS
Meet The Refusers, everyone.They are a high-energy rock band which originated after founder Michael Belkin suddenly lost his infant daughter Lyla only hours after she had been vaccinated.  The band hails from Seattle, REFUSERS 4WA and consists of Belkin, who plays guitar and sings lead, his son Sebastian, who handles percussion, Kevin Blackwood on drums, Steve Newton on bass and vocals, plus Joey Walbaum on keyboards. They  became activists soon after the young girl’s death, having experienced refusal by the doctors and other medical REFUSERS 3and pharmaceutical personnel to accept that the vaccination  may have been a factor, or even the cause, in her death. The band formed and recorded a song they called “Stole My Baby Away” to commemorate young Lyla’s passing. In an attempt to not only entertain others, but also to educate them and hopefully spur them on to become activists, too, they released w etream of other songs. Using a blend of rock, funk, and even a bit of reggae, and most with catchy REFUSERS 2melodies and great hooks, they have  recorded numerous other “alternative” and progressive-themed tunes. Some notable titles include “Vaccine Gestapo”, “Too Big To Fail”, “First Do No Harm”, “Unavoidably Unsafe”, “Get Your Mandates Out Of MREFUSERS 1y Body”, plus many more.  This is not a band out to make a quick buck and then disappear. As dedicated activists, they are doing their best, one set of ears at a time, to alert and educate the public about the evils of corruption: governmental, economic, $cientific, and otherwise. They take aim at greedy corporations which peddle dangerous GMOs, Wall Street, big banks, as well as big Pharma and the bought-out, conservative medical establishment. “This ain’t no corporate weasel-rock,” says founder and lead singer Micheal Belkin. He is absolutely correct.    

This group has just released a new song they call “NSA KGB”. The video I saw for it has every member of the band holding up an Edward Snowden mask in front of their faces through the entire song.  You can hear this fabulous effort by going to http://www.therefusers.com/   

I have included this song’s lyrics below:    

Hero Traitor Hero Traitor
He’s a hero not a traitor, hero not a traitor
Hero not a traitor, he’s a hero not a traitor
hero not a traitor, he’s a hero not a traitor

They listen in on the phone
When you’re by yourself you’re not alone
They read your email, tap your phone
Invite themselves into your home

NSA They’re a bunch of voyeurs
KGB spy on the innocent
Freedom destroyers

Freedom Freedom Freedom!

Hero Traitor Hero Traitor
He’s a hero not a traitor, hero not a traitor
Hero not a traitor, he’s a hero not a traitor
Hero not a traitor, he’s a hero not a traitor
Only part of government that ever really listens
Only part of government that ever really listens
Only part of government that ever really listens
Only part of government that ever really listens
Only part of government that ever really listens
Only part of government that ever really listens
Only part of government that ever really listens
Only part of government that ever really listens!

Edward Snowden spilled the beans
They’re scanning you baby on their screens
Every word’s recorded behind the scenes
Ain’t no secrets from the KGB

NSA They’re a bunch of voyeurs
KGB spy on the innocent
Freedom destroyers

Freedom Freedom Freedom!

Hero Traitor Hero Traitor
He’s a hero not a traitor, hero not a traitor
He’s a hero not a traitor, he’s a hero not a traitor
Hero not a traitor, he’s a hero not a traitor
Only part of government that ever really listens
Only part of government that ever really listens
Only part of government that ever really listens
Only part of government that ever really listens
Hero Traitor Hero Traitor
He’s a hero not a traitor, hero not a traitor
Hero not a traitor, he’s a hero not a traitor
Hero not a traitor, he’s a hero not a traitor
Only part of government that ever really listens
Only part of government that ever really listens
Only part of government that ever really listens
Only part of government that ever really listens!

Talk about totally relevant, in-your-face protest music – THIS more than fits the bill! While I may disagree with their stance on vaccination, I DO understand and appreciate all that has led them to take it.  The uncaring and flippant attitude expressed by my late mother’s hospitalist before her death in 2010 opened my eyes to the severe flaws in our medical system, plus I really like this band’s spunk and their activism. In this song at least, I’m with them all the way. For I do agree that Snowden is a hero, and that our NSA has gone way over the top in paranoia. It has robbed us of our privacy and freedom, and more closely resembles the old oppressive Soviet KGB than it does one of our own supposedly “free” government’s agencies!

I urge The Refusers to keep up their unique brand of protest music, and I hope its popularity will spread like WILDFIRE!

Barack Insane Obama Diagnosed on Fox

Aug, 17, 2010  By Jack Jodell (in association with BURR DEMING of FAIR AND UNBALANCED.COM – see my Blohroll at bottom right hand column).

Happy start of the new week! This Monday, our podcaster extraordinaire, the incomparable Burr Deming, gives us a little lesson dating back to 1964 on how and why it is unfair and unwise for political pundits to cast judgment on the mental health of public figures, as one publication had done back then to Barry Goldwater. He calls out the ignorantly condescending Ben Stein for having done that recently on Fox “News” – this time to President Obama.  

BURR!As Burr tells it, in 1964, “…Psychiatric professionals had no business making a clinical judgment about a national figure with whom they had never had any personal contact. Those few who answered were clearly making a political statement in the guise of a diagnosis….[Today], Psychiatric specialists wisely keep from speculating on the hardliners in Iran and in the United States. Obsession and paranoia seem to occupy the ragged edge of modern conservative mentality. Whatever clinical terms might apply, were a personal examination ever [to] occur, the detachment from reality seems apparent to the non-professional layperson.

The outrage from liberals in 1964 was vocal and lasting. You do not diagnose mental illness in a public figure from a distance.

The outrage from conservatives in 2015? It is the sound of one hand clapping. It is the silent tree falling in the forest, heard by no-one.”

MEET THE 2016 REPUBLICAN CLOWNS! (Part Six in a Series)

Aug. 15, 2015  By Jack Jodell.

The Republican Party, infested as it currently is with extremists, reactionaries, and government-hating Tea Party kooks, has been, for many months now,  filling its group of prospective candidates for  the White House  with wackos, much as it did in 2012.  As so many potential candidates are swelling its ranks, this is no longer a clown car – as I once described it – but has turned into ( as political commentator and comedienne Stephanie Miller has begun to call it, amusingly)  “the Republican Douche Canoe.” But whether a car or a canoe, it is surely poised to capsize into the Potomac long before it ever comes even close to the White House! In this post, I resume the intermittent series which features the declared and / or desiring wannabe GOP candidates who will be making a bid for the presidency in 2016. Never in our entire history have we been so besieged with so many undeserving, unqualified, and unfit candidates for this most important of positions. Today’s focus will be on the envious and equally unqualified younger brother of the worst former Republican President in history: John Ellis Bush, otherwise known as JEB!

stupid georgepapa bIf you thought that older brother George W. was an incompetent. intellectually lazy, a pushover for the greediest oil companies and defense contractors, and an easily misled ignorant war criminal who deserves trial and imprisonment – you would be 100% correct. If you thought his father, George H.W. was also a pushover for greedy oil companies and defense contractors – you would also be 100% correct. So why in the hell should anyone even think of electing a third Bush to the presidency?

jebby boyHe may be slightly better educated  and somewhat more articulate than his older brother, but Jebby boy is cut from the exact same mold as his bro and poppy: inherited wealth which has no understanding of or true compassion for those who are poor or lack great wealth. These are just trust-funders through and through, who don’t give a damn about everyday working people. They are far more interested in courting billionaires and economic power brokers than they are in studying and then responding to the very real needs of average workers.

out of touch jebBecause he has led such a cushy life, Jebby boy is completely clueless about how ordinary Americans live or the struggles they face. He opposes raising the minimum wage, and instead thinks that Americans should work longer hours to make more money. The fool is so clueless he doesn’t realize that, even with overtime figured in, there just aren’t enough hours in a day (or even a week) to turn a paltry $7.25 per hour into a livable wage! Pampered trust-funders like he have NO empathy for others, and that is why he can so easily dismiss needed funding for women’s health issues as if those tallies were mere meaningless, abstract numbers. And that is also why he feels he can ignore the very relevant warnings about the excesses of capitalism recently given by Pope Francis by ignorantly and callously saying “…I don’t get economic policy from my bishops or cardinals or my pope.” Who from, then, Jebby boy? Yo’ daddy, or yo’ crooked older brother? God forbid!

DUH JEBTry as he may, this Bush just can’t seem to extricate himself from having BUSH as his last name. It has been awkward seeing him repeatedly having to walk back statements he has made defending his war criminal brother’s dismal presidency. Plus, his credibility was damaged when he insisted that “I am my own man” on foreign policy (even though it was revealed that he is relying on his brother’s “expertise” as well as others from his brother’s administration like Michael Mukasey, Tom Ridge, Michael Chertoff, Porter Goss, Paul Wolowitz, Michael Hayden, and many more, ad nauseum for further input). Jebby boy was even a charter member (along with DICK Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld)) of the notorious Project for a New American Century, which was advocating war with Syria, Iraq, and Iran way back in 1998! To top it all off, the New York Times was just reported that Jebby boy would not rule ot enhanced interrogation techniques (including waterboarding) were he to become President. “I’m not ruling anything in or out, he told questioning reporters in Iowa last Thursday. (We all recall how war criminals DICK Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld coined that disgusting euphemism in a revolting attempt to minimize the favt that the U.S. was using torture during the Iraq War….

FLUSTED JEBBYNo, Jebby boy, you simply don’t have what it takes to be President. We can’t help that you envy W and your dad for having attained the presidency. And we’ll be damned if we’ll elect yet another Bush to that high office! Your demeanor is much too dull and uninspiring to lead the country, and both your economic and foreign policy beliefs are far too derivative to justify implementing them again. They are a recipe for dismal failure. So please, buzz off  and leave us alone!

WHERE THE REPUBLICAN DEBATERS SOLD US SHORT!

Ayg. 12, 2015  By Jack Jodell.  

The Republican 2016 White House hopefuls held two debates last week. One was for those who polled the least in public opinion polls, and the other was for the 10 who pulled the most. Neither category yielded a suitable candidate, to the surprise of but a few 9f us living in the real world. 

Republican presidential candidates arrive on stage for the Republican presidential debate on August 6, 2015 at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio. From left are: New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie; Florida Sen. Marco Rubio; retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson; Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker; real estate magnate Donald Trump; former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush; former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee; Texas Sen. Ted Cruz; Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul; and Ohio Gov. John Kasich. AFP PHOTO / MANDEL NGAN (Photo credit should read MANDEL NGAN/AFP/Getty Images)

 These candidates neither understand, nor do they even care about, the most pressing issues facing the overwhelming majority of voters today. While Fox “News” commentators did their best to try and convince us they were asking “tough” questions, that effort was belied by the fact that they never once asked about the most vitally important topics. No, in their zeal to portray themselves as probing, relevant journalists (which neither Chris Wallace, Megyn Kelly, nor Bret Baier really are), they failed to ask about each candidate’s proposals to repair and renew our crumbling infrastructure; or how to restore a vibrant and growing middle class; or how to control the ever-rising cost of higher education, which is currently enriching banks while turning our young students into debt slaves; or how to combat the very real threat of climate change; or how to stop and even reverse our rapidly-rising disparity in wealth; or how to restore the civil liberties we have lost under both Presidents Bush and Obama; or how to curtail the power and influence of the military/industrial complex GOP President Dwight Eisenhower warned us about way back in 1961; or  how we should be concentrating on campaign finance reform; or how  we will deal with the growing threat of nuclear contamination from the huge amount of radiation still leaking into the North Pacific from the damaged Fukushima reactor in Japan; or how to prevent the next oil drilling disaster in the Arctic or elsewhere; or how to solve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict; or how to stop murderous police activity bring directed against blacks and Hispanics; (and what their opinion was about Black Lives Matter);  or how to turn our energy consumption away from fossil fuels and toward other new, sustainable forms of energy that are safer and less damaging to our environment?

These are but a few of the many topics these candidates could have, and really should have, been asked to address. Because they weren’t, though, the candidates never did so.  By substituting eoftball questions dealing with other, far less vital issues, Fox “News” and the debaters themselves sold us miserably short. For this reason, NONE of them will have my support or my vote!  

HOPE

 

Remarkably enough, though, most of those pressing issues are being met head-on by candidate BERNIE SANDERS. That is why HE will have both my support and my vote for President in 2016! See for yourself by going to https://berniesanders.com/issues/.  Here is a man who has consistently campaigned on these common sense and fair themes for his entire 30+ year career in public life. He can definitely be trusted and is truly deserving of our support!

Why Can’t Debates Ever Settle Abortion?

Aug. 10, 2015  By Jack Jodell (in association with BURR DEMING of FAIR AND UNBALANCED.COM – see my Blogroll in the lower right hand column).

Happy start of the new week, everybody!  Our podcaster extraordinaire, the very gifted Burr Deming, presents us today with a most thought-provoking effort dealing with conservative and liberal viewpoints on abortion. As you will see and hear from this effort, he clearly understands both positions.

BURR!
In his own words, Burr says,
On abortion, I understand the position of my conservative friends. I’m fairly sure they don’t comprehend mine…I’m unsure whether my conservative friends accept that I understand their arguments without accepting them. They seem to see their own views as so compelling that any difference must, just has to be, a result either of ignorance or of pure evil. Discussion wavers between endless, ever-so-patient, repetition and vehement passion…”
