I have a blog that I use to post items that are connected to the Progressive Movement and about how we can educate ourselves about how dangerous religious delusion is.

Legalize Marijuana

This is a short blog that has a big message to the traitors of the GOP and especially to the elf we all can easily hate–Jeff Sessions.

 Legalizing Weed In The USA is a win-win situation and that is exactly why the traitors of the Libertarianism Is The Religion Of Psychopaths that have taken over our government through the efforts of Stop the Koch Brothers. They are true Libertarians and the GOP is owned by them. Proof of how and why is in this fantastic book, “Democracy In Chains”–by Nancy MacLean.
A book that should be mandatory reading to graduate from high school.
There are thousands of uses for hemp and marijuana that big paper producers (there’s the Koch’s again) and big pharmaceutical companies don’t want us to have because it will impede their ability to accumulate insane wealth, and the billionaire Koch’s are against it because it will hinder their ability to pollute the planet and gain more wealth than ‘god’–if he actually existed–he doesn’t.
My religion is: I’m against anything that ruins this one and only planet we have and allows the minority (think .01?% here) to accumulate more wealth than they could use in 20 generations. Greed is at the root of this evil agenda and the Koch’s are at the helm.

I stand with equality, fairness in our courts, planet earth, and majority rule.


The Attack on our Democracy

How the Koch Brothers are changing our government

Now that the Koch Brothers have [almost] achieved their dream of the wealthy and corporations controlling every aspect of our government — and have control of the [former] GOP — now completely overtaken by the Libertarian wing of said party they [the Koch’s] have upheld since the early 70’s, we are becoming their [brand] of utopia where the goals are to have limited government interference in their affairs and their ability to amass fortunes that are so vast that it allows them to become the installers of the plutocratic/theocratic government they have coveted their entire lives.

They probably lean more to the plutocratic side rather than the theocratic side. I highly doubt that either of them is devoutly religious, much like “Don the Con” that has been [illegally in my estimation] conveniently installed as their “puppet in chief”.

Their goal of dividing the country by calling people “moochers” [if they rely on any government program like Medicare, Social Security, public schools, good infrastructure and a fair and honest judicial system and more], from the makers like them, is at the doorstep.

They divide us by naming us either as “makers or takers”– the makers, of course, are the class that owes nothing to the “takers” that are only interested in sucking off the government teat. What a load of bullshit! Without the men and women that work daily at jobs that produce the very wealth they enjoy, they would not have any wealth at all.

So by dividing the voters in this manner, they accomplish the notion that all would be good for everyone if they leave the “important” decisions to them — thus the return by this administration to the [grossly failed] policies of the Reagan era — trickle down theory, as evidenced by the recent enormous tax cut that helps the wealthy only.

This gross tax cut adds [est. 1.5 trillion in the next 10 years] to our huge debt and relies on the working class to pay it off while they sit back and laugh all the way to their offshore bank accounts.

This division is the method they use — they have so far successfully convinced about 40% of the population to vote for their puppet GOP candidates, even though by doing so, they are voting against their own best interests. So if you have wondered as to how they get people, that are otherwise intelligent and thoughtful, to vote this way, this is at the very root of that dilemma.

We can stop this coup — no exaggeration — by voting out the puppets of the GOP and the handful of Blue Dog Democrats and taking our future back from this oligarchy.

We must do this to stop this assault on our Democracy and return the government back to being what the founding fathers intended–a government of the people, by the people and for the people.

Remember; it’s not the government that needs changing, it’s the people the voters elect that need to be changed.

Vote blue only.

If you’d like more insight on this subject and are willing to see the truth–I suggest you get the book– “Democracy in Chains” by Nancy MacLean. It explains it in greater detail than I can in this blog.

The (Fascist) Oligarchy of America

I’ll keep this brief and very general.

Privatization of everything. Bleed the poor dry. The wealthy control everything. Private charter schools for re-segregation, also no oversight so religion (Christian only — sorry all others) can be again instituted — public schools neglected, especially in the inner-cities to keep those youth dumb — so they have to resort to illegal activities to survive and that in turn gives the private prison (modern-day slavery) system plenty of new “blood”.

Then move on to toll roads, private police forces (like one southern state has already approved with the evangelicals there), private fire departments (no doubt soon to come), and so on.

It is the Koch Brothers Libertarian dream, come true.

This movement must be stopped by any means necessary or fascism, tainted by (fake-ass) Christianity will turn America into the Libertarian/Fascist States of (what used to be a democracy/republic) America.

These are very dangerous times for free thinkers, the educated that still have empathy and all other fair-minded individuals that still believe in a government of the people, for the people and by the people.

I’m deeply concerned about the future of our country and this is just an attempt to start a conversation — to hopefully open a few eyes to the imminent danger to, not only this country [United States] but in other countries all over this planet.

Thanks for reading.

Trump, a week to remember (regret?)

This has been a year a lot of us would like to forget.

Let’s take a look at the week of January 20 through January 27, 2017….

  1. The inauguration crowd that he bragged was the biggest ever (it wasn’t, it was only about one half of the crowd size of Barack Obama’s in 2009) was the first lie that will have to be recorded in the annals of history. In his inaugural address Trump said, and I quote, “This American carnage stops right here and right now”….. funny thing is, crime has been on the decline for the last 25 years. A FACT that he would now classify as “fake news”.
  2. The firing of Sally Yates because she wouldn’t bow down to him (mainly) and the warning of her, former President Obama and others about Flynn and his connections that are suspicious at best and criminal on their face in, what later will become obvious. White House counsel, Donald McGahn remains clueless.
  3. His first attempt at a Muslim ban from seven Middle Eastern countries that have not killed a single American (while allowing other countries in that region that have actually killed Americans to be exempt)… That triggered protests in airports in New York, Chicago, San Francisco and Seattle because of this hypocrisy, (even some with valid “green cards” were banned).
  4. The result of which causes his low approval rating (less than 35%) and it makes him the fastest president (a term I regret I am forced to use) to ever reach such lows.
  5. One thing he did do was get an unfit person, Neil Gorsuch, appointed, with the help of a Republican majority, to the SCOTUS. There’ll be more on this in the coming year as the 2018 court session begins since there are many controversial decisions on the docket.
  6. Then there are his worst excesses. Rewriting immigration laws. Building a ridiculous and unneeded wall on the U.S./Mexico border. And last but not least, his budding but about to be excessive attacks on the Freedom of the Press.                        That is all for now, but his first week was certainly a preview of what we now can see was to come. Not good.

Religion is a form of slavery that hides in plain sight.

Until a vast majority of people gain some common sense and realize that religion, as guide for modern day living…. is nonsense, and is dangerous.
Religious based “laws”, especially in many governments world wide, has gained excessive influence in the last 50 years (or so) and as a result the freedoms and equal rights of billions of planet earth’s inhabitants has been getting worst, not better.
Cause? Religion.
Right here in the USA we are facing a fascist regime like hasn’t been seen since the 30’s and Adolph Hitler.
This is a serious problem. It goes beyond our borders and affects human rights and world peace in many ways…. ways that could be vastly improved with a complete separation of all religion and all governments.
There is no doubt, by this writer, that making and using secular laws and leaving the religious crap to the delusional world, would make this a better place to live.
It’s way past time that we take religion off this pedestal of too much respect and immunity to criticism. It relies on this willful ignorance and undue respect to succeed. It calls any challenge to its dogma a word, blasphemy, that was only invented to protect the impossible and unbelievable that ALL religion is. That word is nothing but a crutch.
I think that the extraordinary claims made in all religious text calls for extraordinary evidence…. and since there is NONE…. it deserves as much exposure of its lies as possible, and also deserves criticism for the impossible stories (not to mention all the misogyny, murder, ethnic cleansing [racist roots] etc.) as is needed to challenge its core beliefs.
Until religion has no unnecessary governmental influence, and laws are made that enhance human rights and freedom (to an exacting rational and proven degree), we will not see the progress we need to see on this (one and only) planet we are super lucky to have…… changes that will save millions of lives and protect human rights in the future.

We already lost too much in the way of progress and science in the original Dark Ages and without some positive action, we are headed for another one.

We may not burn people at the stake, or charge scientists with blasphemy and stretch them until their joints separate on a “rack” but it will work the same, if only with more subtlety.
