A blood soaked Arthur IS RISING

Gonzo journalism and fiction is a tricky mix.... Welcome to my razor's edge.


I am an elf in the attic making mind toys with sharp edges; an educated writer who gets good reviews, who you can read for free in the rough form of first drafts on the web, or purchase in a book form.
The best soldier does not attack. The superior fighter succeeds without violence. The greatest conqueror wins without struggle. The most successful manager leads without dictating. This is intelligent non aggressiveness. This is called the mastery of men.


Welcome to you, I am John Scott Ridgway, Novelist, Poet, Blogger, Radio and TV writer and actor... five books, also paint in oils and acrylics. I am poet warrior of sorts, a non violent radical, personally, though understanding of those who choose other paths IN THE EIGHTY PLUS COUNTRIES AT LAST COUNT THAT came in this blog ...

The predicted revolutions in the USA and around the would are going to

be violent in the next twenty years, is what the CIA says. I want them to stay peaceful, which is the only way to win this struggle between haves and have nots. They have more guns, we have more people,, and they include the mothers and sisters and brothers of the people they will ask to fight us.... I think they underestimate the police.

NEVER ACCEPT APPEASEMENT OVER JUSTICE. By any means necessary is the reality. . . the USA can be spared stupid wars, but other countries. . . need different solutions. . .

The number of Countries that have come in to have a look at this blog humbles me. Thank you very much.



PROFESSIONALS, HOPEFULLY, like the police, military, etc...

understanding that violence is sometimes needed

does not mean I like anything about the sound

of fists hitting faces

Boxing is too much for me

make me feel like I am watching

dog fights with toothless pitbulls

"I am an artist first, and a politician second," as John Lennon said.

My intentions are to stop the violence from entering into

revolutionary wars

the CIA


will break out in the next twenty years all over the

world, including here...

But Ill tell ya,

if there is not some redistribution of

wealth here there and everywhere




My intentions is to keep these protests peaceful

so we can win

without bloodshed

Total War for Total Peace

Never incites violence

or destroys property

you should be able

to go to protests with strollers and babies

parents feeling as safe as the police

Now, poetry...

I am too far out into the battlefield to retreat. This CHARGE is win or die...


A blood soaked Arthur has risen

be aware

be very aware

total war
for total peace
is being fought

THERE will be many ways to die
and only one to live
give and give and give
until the worlds downtrodden and oppressed
can begin to forgive
before things get bloody and ruthless
My Peace sign shot full of holes
and my reason ignored
drowned out by the roar of machine guns

You cannot break the golden rule
all the time and not expect
consequences from nature

we will fight for our right to thrive as well
we do not accept your sentence
to poverty so you can earn more
by shipping the factory off to China

nothing this mindgame in america can do to us
can destroy this thing inside that yearns for freedom
enough to die in the name of JUSTICE
generation after generation
from time

No more hyper-reality FOR US. We have already spent too long in an oasis of belief where nothing is wrong, folks... Now, we must face this was all a mirage... and try like hell to get out of this desert... or resolve ourself to the fact that we will leave our children to starve in the barren sands.

There are better ways to defeat an enemy than an outright fight, especially if you are vastly outnumbered, like the Elite. MSM PSY-WAR allows them to control our actions through our thoughts, and basically stop our FORCE from activating. I am not saying we should fight just because we can win, I am just saying we should fight before we lose, if no other option is left us.... because a world is at stake.

  • You are a spark in dry timber, stopped from becoming a roaring flame
    They SET UP LAWS THAT ALLOW THEM TO STEAL. MURDER. BRAINWASH THEIR CRITICS. We must begin to feel challenged now to stop them. Or WE WILL LOSE EVERYTHING. PERIOD. THE SKY, OTHER SPECIES, OUR WATER... OUR MINDS. No more hyper-reality for us... too long in that oasis where nothing is wrong folks... we must face this is all a mirage.
    • OUR LACK OF RESOLVE TO CHANGE OUR WORLD MUST PUZZLE THE GODS THEMSELVES.... how can we be this collectively dum? And if we are....then the brains will be looked to as potential saviors.... when all too often they are just psocyo-paths and stooges and scared folks under the gun who are ALLOWED to CON EVERYONE... FOR THE GOOD OF A

A cruel slap woke me to the PAIN
at the moment of birth;
My first cry was NO
buried in unintelligible screams.
I am a man now.
Now I catch your hand and break all the fingers.

the promise

You must be whoever the enemy fears the least
or fears the most.

No other position is saf

da general

Welcome to the spark that inflames TOTAL WAR FOR TOTAL PEACE.

I am too far out into the battlefield to retreat. This CHARGE is win or die...

THE ELVES ATTIC is stories, poetry, essay's, peculiar events in my life . . . oil painting, articles.

Your patience for bearing with me on my first drafts is a much appreciated kindness. Your worldwide interest is my muse . . .Lately I have been writing a book called Gangsta General x, about a revolutionary in the USA, who is fighting to keep the revolt peaceful as things spin out of control in the states after a famine gets the populace hungry enough to change their society once and for all....

HOW TO USE THIS BLOG: There is a black and white jukebox in the right column that you can shut off, or find songs on.... To listen to the COMEDY SKITS FROM THE SHOW PEACE AND PIPEDREAMS... turn off the black jukebox, and turn on the Green one. I play Moon Bong Haze and Jesus...

I have five majors, five books, two tv shows, a radio show, 76 countries at last count on this site alone, and over a million online readers to my credit. I can't thank any of you enough for all of your help and encouragement over the years; the favors and aide that has been offered me, the trust in my leadership... you are all SACRED TO ME ... even you folks I tend to hate.


Thank you.

There is a revolt going on, folks..... I could order fighting in the streets today. I could order people to kiill themselves and others. I have done it before, and I will do it again if I need to. You probably don't believe me. That's what we are counting on.

Yes, I started this bit of my psy-war campaign with the line WE ARE REVOLTING... and then thought better of it. I am telling the truth here, though.... back in the bad old days that got me thrown in jail.

You can recruit some pretty useful characters in a jail stay.....eh, I use every opportunity I run into. lol Get 'em John. I'm out again. This just made me chuckle, you know the chuckle, I'm sure. Like I've said in the past, during my uncontrollable ranting days, the government doesn't have full rights to psyops....they just have more drive...we'll get there.

I started this at 44, and that became a code number we used... why did the young girl break into a skyscraper downtown, go up to the 44th floor and kill herself two years ago? Why did a student go into neiu antrho class, the exact class that I described in my writing, and kill a bunch of students and himself? Why did all the flights suddenly getcancelled in 2007? Why am I presently surrounded by the second largest private army in the world? Why did Bush, Obama and Clinton and the pope curry my favor? Why did the english get pissed at me and put out a commercial about someone 'dissing' the queen when I went after the old bitch? I am one of the rightful heirs to the thrown of England and it pisses me off that a bunch of selfish Germans run the thing. I would have given all of that money away long ago. Period. Making the people pay for her upkeep when she is the richest woman on earth is not the kind of Royalty that I come from. Nobless Oblige is not in her limited volcabulary -- wasn't mentioned in Machiavelli's Prince, I guess.

Am I kidding around, making up a character to play on the web, the actor/writer preparing a cosmology for my radio show, a separate universe of truth from which I will be broadcasting? NO.

I could list a lot more... a professional wrestler, killed himself and his children, telling them God would take them in heaven, and the press reported the drugs he was on that were driving him crazy, and my new shrink had me on the same shit... this same week a stranger in the street gave me a pdr.... I got off it and all the psychological problems that had been effecting my life since the start of the radio show went away. Someone is fighting back against me, of course. A lot of people in Intelligence work with me. When I said nuke japan a few weeks ago, an alert went out on military channels that nukes had been launched on Japan... they blamed it on china, but damn, I have friends and we are ready to make this a better world, from the shadows, where the real shit goes down.

Consider the IRA and their non-violent, more legitimate front party. I am the front party, though I refuse to really go be some public figure. I prefer to let other people take the glory. One day I wrote in my blog, I VOTE FOR ISSUES, NOT POLITICIANS. Back during the campaign for president, and Bono was on TV the next day on a white back ground, quoting me without attribution. After I hear Stewart yelling out my name on his show, after I wrote that when everyone knows my name, we will shout it from the mountain tops... I had no idea such a thing would actually happen. I thought I was still fairly unknown. The next day I wrote something about that song, secret agent man, and quoted that being exposed would get him killed, and inferred basically, that I had to be like a spy, and they too... to revolt. They shut up about my name. Oh, the same night as stewart, Gwyneth Paltrow came on tv, talking about me, and saying she smoked weed on her set. I was very big about getting weed legalized, and knew the cops would be wathing me for weed since I was doing a pot show, and I had wrote in my blog, ANYBODY COMES AFTER ME FOR MY WEED, WE ARE GOING TO HAVE A PROBLEM.. BIG FUCKING PROBLEM.

I am too honest for their company, but I have told them, I will help you, but I will not pretend that I have to lie to the american people. I think Intelligence needs to represent the morals of the people. And that means open up what we do. Not everyone agrees with me. The only time I find myself reluctant to disperse info. is when I got someone out of jail...

I do a lot of stuff I am not proud of Jude.  Sometimes I wonder if I am wrong to refuse to hear their secrets, which they would tell me I sign a loyalty oath.  They came to me and told me not to write any books, just to write them in my head, and then I would no need to write them down.  Some huge fucker.  He said I should write children's books.  Interestingly enough, one night a few weeks before, I had been bitching in my apartment to my girlfriend about all the  shit that the gov. was doing to us, and got all pissed and said I was just going to quit writing, or only write children's books.   And they really came after my ass.  I challanged them.  Started a show about weed and wrote in my blog and said on the show, THEY COME AFTER MY WEED AND WE ARE GOING TO HAVE ONE OF THOSE BIG FUCKING PROBLEMS.   They know I run in radical circles and have the support of a good number in the military , including generals.  McCrystal is an expert on the same form of warfare that I am, and Obama is basically right now fighting a war I helped lay out.   I helped Bush and Cheney, too.  Enouraged the average soldiers to kill with my comedy, and on a televised USO that they did.  As my serial killer character, Johnny Pain, who originally brought me fame among those who have to learn to laugh at killing, and put off the crying until afterwards, when they suffer post traumatic stress.  You would not believe the security they keep around me.  They moved a lot of people out of my neighborhood, etc... and let me know about it.  Four attempts have been made on my life.  The Arabs hate me for what I have said.  I wrote a joke the soldiers loved and put up everywhere, about passing a Fatwa that goats asses had to be covered, because now they turned himon as much as little boys and women (who they keep covered)... and since I often offer them my support, as well, and they monitored me and contacted me because i am so against an iranian war that they consider me an ally (My fame started right with a poem that had the first line.... Not one drop of Persian Blood, then went on to list our sins in that vicinity).  So I am no amatuer at  this....  what do you think, would I be better off going over to their side and working within, or keeping my independence, and my vow that everyone should know what is being done in their name?  I kind of have the best of both worlds now.  They keep secrets from me, but follow my lead none the less.  For awhile, someone was trying to bust me, fbi, for the deaths and stuff our campaign caused (not at my behest, by any means, which is why they found no smoking gun, though a one guy, a communist from la, had his long hair pulled out by hand as they tortured him looking for connections to me... he was able to contact me when I walked around the deep south side where no whites usually do... since the blacks have been with me from the beginning, since I studied under a panther and work with Jessie Jakson and father Phleiger, their local champions in these parts, they have tended to be my best allies.  Them and spies.  Obama claims he is working with me... his speach writer uses my lines, as I told him to.   I flirt with fame with the radio show, and am famous here, but the cops are great.... at the height of everyone knowing what I looked like, they followed me everywhere, and just kind of steered people away from me who were asking for a lot of my time (and checked id's from asians around me, and targeting them in my hood because the guy I studied mi under was also a communist --- I am not.  I would like to see a real democracy, and capitalism like it should be, without explotation, and open to all.... not just the rich few, or those who are willing to work themselves to be like the rich few... and for what, more beads?    Fuck heads.  Money is power which is why I am going ahead with writing a script for the characters from my radio show, even though I know the mob will make a little money off the deal.... they owned the radio show.  If it will make me a few millions, every penny will buy a bullet in some parts of the world.

Big Love...

I  know he ain't perfect, but who is? This is a good deal. Thank you Pres. Obama for caring enough to save these people from disaster. BP needs to be held responsible. My God, can you imagine this happening under a Republican's watch? They would be on the oil companies side all the way -- hell, our last vice president owned part of the company that made the fucking device that broke, after lowering the environmental standards needed. Cheney can be personally tied to this disaster.... that evil, satan sucking fucker. I salute Obama.... though a cynical voice in the back of my mind keeps me from supporting the guy, just a few things he does. Not stopping the Patriot Act, like Jude Chemello wrote, really was a stunner to me. That is a criminal document. I have to say, I am surprised he has taken the war up a notch, but hunting down people who are planning to terrorize us all over the globe is hard to argue against really. I mean, kill those bastards already and let us build a ...

 He jumps on the wagon to help the Flotilla, yet he played Rush Limbaugh's wedding, who supports that slaughter. A nazi propagandist. This man has no honor. Period. You would expect better from an artist with words that mean so much to many, but he is just a stupid ass hole... another stupid, selfish ass hole.

In this article is a long list of Iraqi civilians killed by al queda for working for the americans. These people fight dirty, that is for sure... this is Shiite and Sunni violence, that the American presence is not enough to stop. People who say pull out now, do not understand that we might end up with a slaughter in our wake... and that would just be about the worst way to end this war. This is not Vietnam, where the rumors of people getting killed when Ho Chi Min freed his country from the latest invaders (they have not lost a war in a thousand years) were just that, mostly.... these people will die. The Iraqi population has been traumatized by Saddam and the Iranian war. We should not expect them to act all perfect all of sudden. Sorry to write this, sorry to think it... peace is won only through war, with some people, because peace requires justice, which in this country, too, is becoming a rare commodity.

Saw a sign on the El train today saying the average age a Child Is Forced into prostitution is 13. They showed a picture of a young girl trying to ward someone off with an expression of fear and knowledge it was coming anyways was well displayed, striking photo that showed her open hand in the foreground, lookinng large, and then her smaller face behind it... sadness. I heard a con say, a real one, gang banger with what he said were two tits, the code for liking both coke and heroin, told me that the only thing he would turn someone in for was raping a child... I am not that hardcore; murderers, robbers, pick pockets, etc... I jump on those fuckers and want them pushed, because crime has hurt me in the past and these are the same kind of fuckers that did it. I responded to this admission from the gang banger by saying that I liked cops, and had caught criminals....he said, don't say that too loud in here... we were in cook country at the

Oh my fucking God... this is just... it is all going to die. Die. Every Animal in the gulf.... we really did it this time. And if they cannot plug this up, we are going to get something called oil rain, which is predicted already by russia where they think the entire continent will be destroyed, after a report for the their president offered the prediction of oil rain... which kills right down to the microbe, especially when mixed the Kill Whatever that shit was that the sprayed on the oil is factored in --- very lethal stuff, that makes it easier for the oil to rise up into the clouds. This will get so much worse before it gets better. BP should be bankrupted and owned by us now.

 BP apparently rejected advice of a subcontractor, Halliburton Inc., in preparing for a cementing job to close up the well. BP rejected Halliburton's recommendation to use 21 "centralizers" to make sure the casing ran down the center of the well bore. Instead, BP used six centralizers.
In an e-mail on April 16, a BP official involved in the decision explained: "It will take 10 hours to install them. I do not like this." Later that day, another official recognized the risks of proceeding with insufficient centralizers but commented: "who cares, it's done, end of story, will probably be fine."

"ethnic Kyrgyz men had sexually assaulted and beaten more than 10 Uzbek women and girls, including some pregnant women, and children as young as 12, on a single street during the rampages that erupted last week." And that is the tip of the iceberg. This is why I say only war will bring peace with some people. I would like to see the special forces in there helping them. I am sure they would like to go fight a good battle for a change.... where they would be recognized as heroes, instead of getting rocks thrown at them... as long as they don't try to stay and steal the mineral and oil rights.... hint, hint, hint...

STEALING FROM THE NATIVE AMERICANS... COME ON TERMINATOR -- this is a sin against the environment, and breaks yet more tribal treaties. Too bad there are not enough of them left to take to the war path... 96% died when the new world folk came. If they were not shot, they were often deliberately given diseases. Can you imagine that happening now? 4% left and invaders taking almost all of your land. I apologize, once again, for being an American.

This site has some great research on various medical experiments. You can take sides, or just watch the new humans being developed before your eyes. From the Super Soldier research will come the new humans.... why not? I want genetically engineered kids. If I could only trust them to make them ethical... unfortunately, ethics are the first thing they try to tear out of soldiers. Thank God he has not made this possible.

Every fucking artist I know would be in jail over this one, including my girlfriend, who lost a high paying job thanks to Goldman Sachs and the Stock Market Thieves, and could not keep up.... so we said, fuck it... now they try to jail her, and they are going to have to bring in a swat team or two, I assure you. I will kill everyone who comes for her. I am not kidding. In fact, I would fucking go down there with bombs and my biker buddies and free her, no matter who goes down.The powers that be got theres for fucking with me before.... I doubt they will do it again.... and the chicago cops love me, and would pull guns on anyone who comes after me, too. They already have a few times.We should be in the streets over this. Whatever judge ordered this needs to covertly attacked... a hint to my spy buddies. NO VIOLENCE.

 This dolphin came up to these distressed whales, who kept getting stranded on sand bars. They were about to put them to sleep... a dolphin came up and started chattering, the whales called back, then followed the dolphin around the sand bar. They can speak to each other. We so under-estimate what we are letting people hunt...

This actually offended some idiot, who uses the name rainbow, which should tell you something... I blocked her. the world is so horrifying that you have to have some laughs, and bitter laughs are better than none.

They know we are coming because we warn them every day.... be careful in what you say.

 Hey, those of you who steal from a needy public....one of your kind killed himself on exposure. And we are coming after you now, demanding open gov. So.... take this guys lead, you know who you are, and maybe God will take mercy on you for doing the right thing, making a statement for the people you have ripped off all your life, the environment your lifestyle kills along with the people, of course... and then maybe you won't end up in the flames you are headed into right this very fucking second. Good bye.

 I really want to shove my dick into her mouth to shut her up. Or a couple other places... the problems start when cheerleaders stop moaning and start talking....

Okay, time to pull the plug on this one ... he has been brain dead too long... loss of oxygen to the old thinking skills and all that. The right to pull the plug will be auctioned off to feed hungry children. Bids are already in the millions!!!

 Amazing. I can understand their anger, but let's not bring innocent, or even not so innocent, cops into this. The innocent die in operations like this, and they backfire politically. I do admire their balls.... but a full front on attack is merely going to kill the grunts, and leave the evil they protect unscathed. A pulitzer prize winner did a study showing one out of four people are employed protecting the wealth of the top 4%. These are the people who die in these sort of operations. A lot of Arizona law enforcement is totally against this law. If you are going after a real target, like a judge or a politician, as an MI guy, I would say get a long range rifle and a scope, sit about a mile back, pop off a round, and live free to fight another day. Not that I would do that, nor should I think anyone should. There are just better ways....

Doesn't shock me at all.... a selfish man risks destroying the environment to make a few bucks... and he was voted in. Let's hope they vote his ass out. Or better yet, cover him in toxic oil. Cheney approved this drilling, so we cannot trust them at all... his company Haliburton, made the dam part that broke... we need to re-examine all deep well drilling off the shore, obviously....

This election stealer has no right to tell the American people anything. He is trying to clean up the Bush name... too late, the truth is out and you people are going down in history as criminals, traitors, and the creators of the largest environmental disaster in history, not to mention the largest war. The blood on the Bushes hands .... my god, we could drown them all in it... and we should all recognize they splashed it on our hands, too. SHUT UP JEB BUSH... YOU ARE DISGRACED... AND WILL NEVER BE ABSOLVED BECAUSE YOU WILL NOT ADMIT YOUR SINS AND ASK FOR FORGIVENESS.

Yes, pay the people teaching our college students next to nothing, then fire them when they try to organize to gain the wages other schools who have a union are paying... the union has gotten a bad rap. Sometimes deserved, but still... together we can win, alone they fire us. This is the lesson here, folks. Collective action comes hard for Americans, who are raised on the myth of the individual,yet we are merely a small part of an eco-sphere, and it is all inter-related. Allowing a few powerful individuals to dictate the lifestyles of 90% of the population can only be turned around by organizing into groups.

 "The New Deal sought to rearrange the relationship—formed in the Gilded Age of the late-nineteenth century—between the government, the Forgotten Man, and the Captain of Industry. With the help of an economic crisis, Franklin D. Roosevelt convinced Americans that government intervention was necessary to curb the Captain of Industry’s greed and irresponsibility..." Christopher Malone.

Right NOW in the United States, and most countries, only the financially elite, and those who are willing to give them rim jobs on occasion, can afford to run for office. Even the number of names needed on petitions to hit the ballet is costly. So we end up being run not by the wisest men in society, say the Steven Hawkins and Amy Goodman's and Michael Moore's, we end up with the Bushes. Campaign finance reform would allow the most qualified to run, the brilliant professors and young soldiers with opinions outside the norm. Career politicians will fight this, more than likely, with guns if they have to. Yet... this is a lynchpin in becoming a true Democracy again.

One thing I studied i school was how biased most media reporting is. Geared toward the rich... what they do is interview the head of the Company, or their professional pr person, but they never interview the head of the unions, just get a sound bite, at best, from someone who is marching. The study we studied on this was from Denmark, and is on what is considered a very liberal, government run station. Here in the states it is much worse -- the owners of the newspapers wish they could fire their own unions, so they do not give them a chance. This was in Dr. Sarah Hoaglands' class at neiu. I recommend her as highly as ... I possibly can. We do not agree on everything, but she knows shit almost no other person on the planet does.... about Wittgenstein, the most important philosopher of the last century, for me.

Amy Goodman is not one of those reporters by the way... here she is doing it right....

This life is a sliver of time in immortality, and will be just another memory in eternity when we return to spirit... kind of like how unreal high school becomes once you are out and an adult.

They are getting ready to overturn a ban on murdering a species with a larger vocabulary than most humans; did you read about the dolphin talking to the whales who were beached, and about to be put to sleep this week? The dolphin led them out of a series of sand bars and saved their lives. God only knows how many are going to die as a result of the oil pouring out of the Gulf... who are these people, and who cut out their hearts?

The Russian President is meeting with ours today. A report given to Mendeven (sp.) said that oil rain will destroy North America. Wonder if they will be discussing that? Or just trying to keep a lid on everything, like they are, so people will not panic? If half of what the Russian Report says is true, life as we know it is over. I am not usually an alarmist, and I HOPE I AM TOTALLY WRONG. But.. well... all we can do is wait and see.

right-wing spokesmen characterized hauling BP before Congress as "Stalinist" (Rush Limbaugh), the "Salem witch trials" (Glenn Beck), and "Inca ritual slaughter" (Charles Krauthammer). Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., denounced Obama's "redistribution of wealth fund," and Rep. Tom Price, R-Ga., his "Chicago-style political shakedown." Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour worried aloud about BP's bottom line." Yet, he got 20 billion, plus 100 million to pay workers. Who do these 'pundits' work for? They just want controversy, a plot for their us versus them script.

 Japan, Norway and Iceland just made THE PSYCHO KILLER'S SHIT LIST.... a book of mine which is, sort of, explained in that title. Boycott them. Piss on them. Hate them for being murderers of species with larger vocabularies than our own. This is outrageous. Business does not deserve to win this battle over justice. No justice, no peace. Where are they kids protesting in these countries?

Uhm, is BP ponying up on this one, I wonder? Or hiring mercenaries to keep the journalists away from the food stamp offices, perhaps? Seems to have worked pretty well for the oil washing up; got the government to enforce a no fly zone to hide their sins.... or keep us from panic.

 Now that is cool...

Women's rights activists are celebrating - but the woman, believed to be in her 20s, is now facing prison and a public lashing after the officer was hospitalised for the attack.

Not that lashing part... the fighting back part. These morality enforces would think twice if say, one of ten of these women started packing heat. The cops would suddenly 'stop noticing' such things... and the religious fanatics among them would go down. The only downside is the lashes part.... and the prison part. Better just to change the laws, so people are free to follow whatever religion they want. Religious freedom is a requirement of justice... and justice is a requirement for peace.

In the United States, we have been given a choice, by the actions of our politicians, between private armies, or a draft. I wish peace was another option on the table... until it is, this is our choice. The Draft would turn everyone against the war like that. So... they hire vets to fight for huge salaries; the same vets we all praised when they were active duty. So, Xe or a Draft? You know what you will take....

 " In November 2009, a BBC poll found that 63 percent of Americans felt that capitalism in its current form wasn’t working for them. What if the Social Forum crowd claimed to represent that 63 percent — and then some?" FOX TRUMPETS ABOUT THE tea party and ignores a much larger event. Oh, that liberal media.

"There can be no sustainability at any level unless we have a strong, active, and engaged labor movement," he said. "If [those who created the current economic crisis] can weaken or erode the labor movement, then their next step is the social justice movements. And their next step is total dominance of their ideology."

I am smoking weed all damn day then... and this time, I have a reason. A protest. I wish Tom Cruise was here so I could blow some smoke in his face... better yet, just send me Katie and we'll do some bongs and discuss being 'naughty.'

In 2007, at a North American leaders’ conference in Montebello, Quebec, police dressed as demonstrators were filmed carrying rocks and agitating amongst the crowd to join them in violent acts. (See Canada: Police agent-provocateurs unmasked at Montebello summit protests.) And in 2001 at the Genoa, Italy, G8 conference, police agents were discovered to have instigated violence during protests.These facts, however, did not prevent the leader of the Toronto Police Association, Mark McCormick, from demanding Ryan’s resignation from the presidency of the OFL for “defaming the police”.

'We talked to workers who had been told by BP that they didn’t need respirators. Apparently, they’re concerned about poor media images of people wearing respirators and rubber gloves and starting, quote, “hysteria.”

 You people do realize that half the time I am playing my character Johnny Pain, the serial killer, on facebook, right? The character that millions have read and know me as from my blogs? I mean, I am here, too... but the violent rhetoric is joke, an expression of frustration.... I get so sick of saying that in court when you fucks get me connected with something.....

John Scott Ridgway If this Witch takes our pot, booze and porn... but leaves me my gun? I will promptly put it to my temple and fire. After first taking out her extended family, of course. Just kidding. You people do realize that half the time I am playing my character Johnny Pain, the serial killer, on facebook, right? The character that millions have read and know me as from my blogs? I mean, I am here, too... but the violent rhetoric is joke, an expression of frustration....

I watch schools of scared fish on the net/ they just swim this way or that/ following whoever happens to be swimming first/ hoping like hell they can avoid the sharks with no guarantees at all ever

At 2500 dollars a minute, we could buy time on Pakistani TV's Rush Limbaugh's -- who actively call for our death at the hands of the Taliban, and show average americans going about their day, free of devil horns and pithforks, etc... just human beings their politicians use in an us versus them to keep their particular elite the elite... whether they are in churches, mansions, or... both.

I watched this happen live: six helicopters crashed in the Iranian desert during an aborted attempt to rescue american hostages. It was the middle of the night, this was happening, and they were showing it practically live on CNN. I could not believe they would let this be filmed, shown, etc... live. Later, I realized that Carter's presidency was being sabotaged. That was all that made sense to me. No one seemed to ever agree with me, and a journalism professor shot me down over the whole thing... had books on his shelf proving other. Now, here it is, 25 years later and I right. Then we found out Reagan shipped our enemies some missiles so they would hold onto the hostages until after the election, to insure Carter would lose. The country has gone downhill ever since. A CIA coup of sorts.... this is why we need more oversite. The watched ones must become the watchers.

Thank you Supreme Court for striking down our hand gun ban and all the fresh blood in our streets. Thank you for the toddlers the police will cover in sheets and carry out to their cruisers. Thank you for all the guns the gang bangers will now be able to get from just about anyone on the block. Thank you for taking drunken domestic disputes and making them much more dangerous for our police officers. Thank you for the drunken mayhem outside of bars. The dead bouncers, cab drivers, and countless others that have statistically been proven to die when HAND guns are legalized.... oh, sure,just a few deaths you say, have to break a few eggs to make an omelet. They told they same thing to Humpty Dumpty. Get a shotgun to protect your house if you have to. Evolve, dammit!!

"A coalition of international Jewish organizations sympathetic to the Palestinians will send a flotilla to Gaza to try to break Israel’s blockade of the Hamas-run strip."

Here is what I love to see. An answer to the racists who forget that this conflict, like all of them, is between those who seek justice, and those who seek predatory land grabs.

 "Do you know who was the first person in Christian history to be executed for blasphemy? Jesus. "You have heard the blasphemy. What do you think?" says the high priest at Jesus's trial according in Mark's gospel. "They all condemned him as deserving to die." My Jesus would just laugh along, probably... but the dude is a hot head, so... I guess I would tread lightly, but why not? Comedy shows always have to be centered on 'lovable characters,' no matter how obnoxious they may act at times. I do a comedic Christ, and am anxious to hear someone else's take. Mine is unique enough that I am not worried about anyone stealing him... to controversial for all those tiny balled tv writers.

People have finally realized that his religion does stuff like, oh, taking the passports from people and forcing them to work 16 plus hours a day on their ships for nothing more than the bucks it takes to buy more books by L Ron. In our secular age, movie stars take on the place if icons, whether they deserve it or want it, and Tom Cruise is using his fame to con people. He is as much a victim as others who get caught in the mental trap of a cult (I studied them in school and know, they get people you would never think, simply because most people are not on the look out for such activities because they seem like a myth -- they are not; anyone can be brain washed).

I am sorry he has chose to use his art as a weapon like this, but as long as he does I will not pay one dime to go to a movie he is in, let alone watch a movie he stars in. I can no longer distance the look of his face from the very, very destructive cult he propagates.

  Why are we massing commandos and a flotilla of massive Naval Death Machines near Iran? Why are the Iranians rushing troops to their northern boarder. IF THIS WAR STARTS.... WAR ITSELF WILL WIN. THERE WILL BE NO STOPPING THE RUSH OF CHRISTIANS AND JEWS AGAINST MUSLIMS... THIS IS INSANITY. We will do a lot more destruction here than a nuclear bomb can. They have enough fire power there now to level Iran, Syria, and whoever else gets in their way. THE AMERICAN PEOPLE DO NOT WANT THIS WAR..... Leave the Iranians Alone. We will pay for this not just in losing our ability to retire, take care of our sick, pay our teachers, police and firefighters.... we will pay for this here, with civilian blood, because this will spread. Attacking 3 muslim countries at once will send them all the message JIHAD IS ON. We need to bring in the peacemakers and back these soldiers off. One spark sets off ww3? No.... no.... no....

"Raising the issue anew allows Obama to mollify his Latino supporters. But it also puts Republicans in a tough spot. Neither party can afford to write off a Latino community whose influence is growing." The rising Latino voting block that the Republican's once enjoyed has been eroded by their immigration policy. Obama is brilliant to get this topic going again BEFORE THE NEXT ELECTION. The Republicans will have to choose between the nuts at the Tea Parties, or the Hispanics in their districts who actually vote there in numbers that can toss their ass out, if not now, certainly in ten years.... NOW IS THE TIME TO GIVE OUR COUNTRY BACK TO THE PHILOSOPHY OF TAKING THE HUMBLED, POOR, AND ALL THAT stuff the French wrote on The Statue of Liberty.... Boarders mean little --- people mean more... very simple equation. I see these guys riding ice cream bikes at the beach, some in their sixties... humble, hard working people. I prefer their smiles and friendliness to the asshole haters w...

".... But have you noticed that when it comes to actual policy, he keeps racking up the wins? This week it was financial-regulatory reform. One can argue about whether the bill the Senate passed will truly change the way Wall Street operates, but off the top of your head, can you name a more significant piece of progressive legislation signed by either of the last two Democratic presidents? Neither can I. And that goes for Obama’s stimulus package and his health-care reform as well. All of which means that, legislatively at least, Obama has exceeded in 18 months what Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter achieved in a combined 12 years." I still have hope, and though he does not always get what he wants, he moves us in the right direction when he has a choice. Let's not hate everything he does... remember, a republican would have given bp 120 billion....
