Zodiac Killer and a message to Neo Nazis

 On this day in 1968, the Zodiac Killer murdered his first victim.  To celebrate, he sent the following message to the newspapers:

I like killing people because it is so much fun it is more fun than killing wild game in the forest because man is the most dangerous animal of all to kill something gives me the most thrilling experience it is even better than getting your rocks off with a girl the best part of it is that when I die I will be reborn in paradise and (all the people) I have killed will become my slaves I will not give you my name because you will try to slow me down or stop my collecting of slaves for my afterlife.

The Zodiac Killer continued to write letters and murders he took credit for continued to add up until 1971, when he sent his last message:  Me = 37, SFPD = 0.   There were no more murders after that and the man behind these murders remains a mystery.


Steve Bannon
It's gotten real ugly boys-and-girls -- if you haven't noticed.   What appears to be the problem is we're getting taken advantage of by the 1% on one end as our social services and security net collapses around us while the rich-get-richer -- not to mention using our tax payments to bailout their investments and pile up US debt on unfunded oil wars -- the George Bush War still has never been paid for, remember, there was a tax-cut with that increased spending, a play right out of Ronald Reagan's Play Book:   run up the debt and blame it on the social problems.  

That's right, they're grabbing up all the marbles and blaming you for the theft.  But I'm not talking about the 1% today, I'm talking about the lower 1%, the Steve Bannon White Supremacist.   Do you know they all joke about the N tax (I don't use that word even in jest).  They really have convinced themselves unfunded oil wars and government bailouts for wealthy investors isn't the problem; in their minds the problem is the blacks (they use the N word) and the N... Tax, and when it isn't the blacks, it's the Hispanics, Arabs, Jews, you name it. 

Not funny anymore. 
Killer of 17 in school shooting and admitted White Supremacist
In today's news Youtube admits it has a Neo-Nazi problem.  And why's that?   Because the small percentage of low self-esteem white people are polluting the blogs -- like this one -- with crazy talk -- like this one.   This is why I write against them -- along with the religious fakes keeping us from enlightenment.    Someone needs to be a voice of reason.   My god, do they really think they can have an all white world?   WTF, they never have or never will.   It is a decease.   A Jerry Seinfeld TV remake. 

Let's say they do get their all-white world back, then what?  We know what, they would start pointing fingers at the Italians, Irish, and Polish.   Remember all those jokes?  I'm 57 and I do.   Let's see, there were the Waps and The Polocks and Irish drunk jokes.  Most of these White Punks On Hate today don't remember that. They don't realize that we all need to get along or we all sink with the ship.  That simple.
Inside they know they aren't going to have an all-white world anymore and I guess it is killing them. They need to find a reason for why they hate themselves and so project this hate on people who look different.  The truth is, society norms have come to repossess the trailer and they're holding to the carpet for dear life. 

Finally, I wish there was a way we could give them their white world.  Maybe a State.   Shit the whole South again if they want.   Within a few years they would be eating each other for not being White Enough.   It's an incurable disease they have and I for one, will not go down with them.  

That's all I have to say on this, and, well, everyone in the country should learn English.   That way idiots like Donald Trump wouldn't get elected. 


Yeah, no more unions.

On this day in 1834, England figured out how to handle its workers requesting fair treatment from the 1%: they shipped them to the penal colony in Australia.  That's right,  six agricultural laborers from the English town of Tolpubble in Dorset were sentenced to seven years of imprisonment.  Their leader, George Loveless, wanted to create a union to give them greater bargaining strength with landowners.  The laborers lived in desperate poverty on wages of nine shillings a week.   Yes, they were working in poverty.   Not too different from most people today.  It might not be you, but it is someone you see everyday: maybe that hairdresser, they fast-food counter person, or that security guard given a gun to protect your apartment complex.  It's bad today, only there are no more islands to send us to for punishment, now, we stand on street corners begging for quarters.   Yes, this is your conscious speaking ass-whole:  do something, get off your doughnut.   Pay attention, soon it will be you... unless, that is, you are one of them.  But then, why would you be reading this. 

Ironically enough, on this day in 1948, The Taft-Hartley Law was invoked for the first time.  Workers in the Atomic Trades and Labor Council could not walk off their jobs at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory until a "cooling off" period of 80 days had passed (allowing their 1% leaders to find their replacements while pretending to negotiate terms).

Fast forward to today where the Supreme Court is hearing the "Fair Share" practices where workers are forced to pay union fees.   Now, this may sound un-Amercian to force workers to pay for union fees, but the fact is if you don't the unions won't exist.   Why?   The companies will hire people on the bases they agree not to pay the union fees.    Now, my mother worked under a union in Detroit and every week complained about the $30 dollars they took out, especially since the unions weren't doing anything for woman at the time, and so she worked beside men making a third of their pay.   So, I grew up not appreciating the unions; however, without them we would never have gotten an 8 hour work day -- which more and more people are losing today.   Conversely, we wouldn't have paid-holidays, healthcare benefits, and be working beside children.    That is what the unions gave us:  a middle class.   And once the Supreme Court votes away the "fair share" provision, the remaining unions, mostly city workers at this time, will go the route of the auto unions and pilot unions:  gone.   Or worse, as reported in HuffPost, Pilots on Food Stamps to make ends meets.   What?   In America!  Yeah, no shit, Sherlock, sit back, have another donut, don't concern yourself with it, your flight to Cancun is probably safe.  
 So, I end this post by saying I'm glad the unions will be gone soon: then we can get on with our revolution against the 1% by blocking their tollways and jamming their gated locks on their private neighborhoods so they have to deal with us, because, soon the imbalance will be so noticeable they will be effected too.    
For those of you who don't believe workers rights are being destroyed so the 1% can add a few more cars to their collections and coins in a Swiss bank, are fooling yourself.   When the bottom falls out it falls out for all of us.  When the rich don't pay their share, we all suffer.   I have a friend now who works for a major department store, I won't mention their name because it might affect my trips to the mall because I park by the Dillard entrance to my mall and have to enter through that door.   Anyways, she sells cosmetics, she has too, she left an abusive relationship and so has to pay her rent, food, etc, and that jobs does get her closer to making ends meet than the fast-food options.   The problem is, she works slave hour, slave rules, and has no say.  For instance, they don't allow them to bring coffee to their counters, nor do they give them a break on Sundays.   They also don't five them chairs to sit in, and here is the kicker, they really don't give them days off.  The few days she gets off she has some-kind of training to go too.   Then, her job is threatened daily for not making enough sells, when, the mall is so empty you could fire an AK14 through it and not hit anyone -- fortunate for her,  that is probably why no one has.  
So there you have it, take it or leave it: enjoy your red-white-and-blue sprinkles on your donuts.   This doesn't concern you, now does it.

St. Patrick's Day, "Muckrackers," and Marx.

The first St. Patrick's Day Parade was held on this day in New York in 1762 by Irish soldiers serving in the British soldiers serving in the British army.  Early Irish settlers to the American colonies, many of whom were indentured servants, brought the Irish tradition of celebrating St. Patrick's feast day to America.  And what a feast day it was, from his journal writing in 1865, the Pennsylvania-born sergeant in the Irish Brigade, recounts:

St. Patrick's Day in the morning, and it is a fine morning, weather beautiful.  This is the day of the "Irish Brigade Jubilee"....  At ten O'clock the horses and riders came in...and arranged themselves in line, and then the word was given and away they go.  Some went over the hurdles and ditches, some flew the track and ran through the crowd of soldiers.  A sergeant of the 69th New York was trampled to death and half a dozen others badly wounded.  The Ambulance was hauling dead and wounded away all day.  The second round the Black Stallion of the Dutch Col fell over a hurdle and broke his neck and both arms of the Colonel.  They sent the Colonel to the Hospital, rolled the dead horse out of the way and went ahead as if nothing had happened.  Corporal Chisholm and myself sit in the Head Quarters carriage of General Meade on top of the hill four hundred yards away and we was hardly safe there, as one horse flew the track and nearly run through the carriage we sit in...On they went, horses flying the track, running over the spectators, faffing over the hurdles, into the ditches, breaking arms, legs, etc.  We soon got tired and came back to camp.  Never did I ever see such a crazy time.  I  will have to alter my mind if I ever go to see another Irish fair.


Oddly enough, on this day in 1883, the inventor of the word "capitalism" and arguably the world's most influential economist, Karl Marx, is buried in London's Highgate Cemetery.  The grave was virtually unmarked (a monument stands there now), and fewer than 20 people attended.  Not to fear though, in the true spirit of Marx himself, on this day in 1906, the term muckraking journalist is coined by President Theodore Roosevelt in a speech to the Gridiron Club in Washington.  The origin was ironic.  Speaking against sensationalist "yellow journalism," Roosevelt borrowed the term from John Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress ("the Man with the Muckrake...who could look no way but downward"). However, "muckraker" soon became the nickname of great journalists who exposed the miserable abuses of the top 1 percent: forced child labor, predatory finance, marketing of unsafe food and drugs... etc.

Tax Cut: Less infrastructure.

What their tax cuts gets you:

Less infrastructure.

Don't worry, they'll fix it with a tollway.

Have another doughnut.

Here's what it looked like before.

Here's what you look like with that doughnut in your mouth:

What happened to my country?

Speaking of the 1 percent, there is a petition going around to have Betsy DeVos resign.  Remember her?  She's the Secretary of Education who's soul purpose in life is to de-fund public schools.   She hates everything they stand for.   They scare her because the people going to public schools don't always live in gated communities, feel bad about themselves because they are of color, and/or, sometimes wear Hijabs.

Okay, that's a little harsh, I know.  Maybe it is just the Jesus thing.  You know, as I said a few days ago she wants every-one to be home schooled so they are brained wash -- as I was -- to fear the Capitalist God!   More precisely, the Creation Myth thing that public schools only teach when forced too, and then, as "a Theory!"  -- Run for your life, it's the school of Satan! -- So they actually believe.

News for you boys-and-girls, I've changed my views, I think we should be able to teach Creationism as a fact, along with the Native American's "Turtle on the Back" story, and of course, the "Ancient Astronaut theory."   Why not: the Nazca el astronauta thinks so:

Is this how it ends?

Thawing Permafrost Will Release Deadly Pathogens That Have Been Locked Away for Thousands of Years

Ancient germs from Climate Change


Thawing permafrost in the Arctic is one more way climate change will directly affect humans. As that permafrost melts, it could unleash potentially deadly pathogens. The potentially deadly pathogens hiding there are often dubbed “zombie diseases.” 

Is this how it ends people?  Or, is it the way Mother Earth heals herself from our maggot existence of eating and pissing on everything in sight?

Something needs to be done.  Anyone in their right mind knows we can't keep populating like we are without some huge negative affect. 

In my brief existence, we have gone from four Billion to seven billion.  That's fifty years.  Also in my life, I know people in high places have tried to reverse this.  The Conservatives give us wars and the liberals wants us to stop having babies.  On the very dark side was the Mad Scientist working for the NWO (New World Order), gave us Aids.  Aids might have worked but then the nuts realized a lot of good conservative people were in that group.  Son's and daughter of the elite!  Dick Satan Chaney's daughter for one.  But I digress.  

There's not enough food to feed the world now and that's why there is so much starvation.  But you don't care, now do you: you have your Crispy Cream and a decent paycheck, and heck, Football season is right around the corner.  Why think about it. 


On a brighter note, arming teachers with weapons isn't our biggest problem today, apparently, feeding puppies to turtles is!  True story:

Middle-School Science Teacher Investigated After Accusation He Fed Puppy to Turtle in Class


Fortunately for us, Donald Trump is finally admitting he is lying?  No, really, and yet, you do nothing but read stupid blogs like this.

Why Trump’s admission that he made stuff up to Justin Trudeau is particularly bad

  In a fundraising speech Wednesday, President Trump admitted once and for all that he just makes stuff up. The man who has racked up more than 2,000 false and misleading claims as president said he insisted to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau that United States runs a trade deficit with Canada — despite having “no idea” whether that was actually the case. (Surprise! It's not.)

Could this be the start of something big?  A reporter in China rolls her eyes at the Auto Speak words from their national press who were asking Fox-News like questions to a Republican:  It was a rare puncturing of the artifice surrounding the widely watched, intentionally dull National People’s Congress. The carefully choreographed event, at which top leaders make speeches and delegates rubber-stamp new policy, lends a veneer of democracy to China’s autocratic system of governance. This year, it has drawn heightened attention for a constitutional amendment that abolished term limits for President Xi Jinping.

What if more reporters started doing this.  Reporters in Russia when Putin tells another lie, or Washing DC when Trump makes fun of someone with a handicap.

Oh what a world it would be.

Just imagine:

So, what do you think of Putin?


At last, truth!


In other news, first there were no fish, then a few days ago this massive thing-of-a-fish washing ashore in Australia.   It was said to be 330 pounds.  
Okay, stuff like this happens all-the-time, but then a few days later, in Australia, this 68 year-old woman catches another monster fish weighing in at 130 pounds while fishing!
What's going on down-under?

No talk of impeachment here folks.

On this day in 1858, for the first time in U.S. history, the impeachment trial of an American president, Andrew (Tennessee) Johnson, begins in the Senate.   As with today, the majority of the politicians were self-serving henchmen led by greed and revenge.  Abraham Lincoln had just been assassinated and Andrew Johnson had been appointed to the office of presidency.   The Civil War was over.  The South had lost.  Johnson, following in Lincoln's footsteps, wanted to pardon the Southerners, forgive, forget, and move on.   The majority of the Senate and Congress wanted the South to pay.   That was the basis of the impeachment process, which, Andrew escaped by a single vote. 

One hundred years later, another Johnson would become president after Kennedy was assassinated for similar reason as Lincoln: trying to do the peoples will in a country who doesn't believe the majority's will should be respected, only the elite Senator and Congressmen and woman, who know what is best for the country.  In 1858, the power elite felt that the South needed to pay their debt or their would be chaos and another war, in 1963, the power elite felt that Kennedy's willingness to work with Russia and his hesitation to escalate the Vietnam war, was a threat to the USA. 

In both cases, the power elite were wrong, much as they are today with their Tax Cuts and War Spending.   Only, there are no heroes left to assassinate, their power is too strong and we are too weak. 

On a brighter note, today's power elite, the Republican Congress and Senate have come to the conclusion that Donald Trump didn't benefit from the Russian interference with the last presidential election.  

Boy,  I feel better already!

Also on this day, oddly enough, in 1964, less than a four months after he murdered Lee Harvey Oswald for the assassination of President Kennedy -- yeah, right -- Jack Rudy is found guilty of murder and sentenced to the electric chair.   Can you say: swept under the rug, boys and girls? 

And in today's Orwellian Watch: More Wars and Rumors of Wars.

March 12: Nazi round two(?)

From the Dairy of Victor Klemperer, titled "I Will Bear Witness" -- Victor Klemperer was Jewish but not sent to a camp because of his military record and Aryan wife.

March 12, Sunday Morning, 1944.

...Foreman Hartwig, a man in his late sixties, quite emaciated, ailing, became friendly as I helped him with the labeling.  (The same ceremony every morning.  The foreman has to deliver the previous day's production, piled up on the tables, to the forwarding department.  He identifies the individual commissions according to the order notes, fetches the appropriate labels, brushes paste on them out of a pot, whereupon a girl usually sticks them on the boxes.  There is a tremendous shortage of workers; I produce little at the machine, so for the moment I am the paste girl.  So Hartwig asked about my former profession.  Then he said: "The Jews may be to blame for something, but that is not right...There will be nothing good anymore for us old people..."  

"Foreman, I'm not allowed to say anything to that, I must not make any complaints, it could cost me my head."  

"I know...I'm not allowed to talk to you either--but what good can the war bring us now?  My youngest is in Italy, he was in Africa first, my older boy is in the far north..."  

"Were you in the First World War, Foreman?"  

After that we told each other about lice, rats, hospital train, etc.  


On this day in 1945, Anne Frank, the German Jewish girl whose famous diary describes her family's two years of hiding in the Netherlands, dies at the age of 15 in the Nazi concentration camp of Bergen Belsen. 


And still, Holocaust deniers such as  Steve Bannon (guilty by associating with Marine Le Pen since he keeps avoiding the question directly).

National Front party leader Marine Le Pen, right, and former White House strategist Steve Bannon hold a press conference at the party congress in the northern French city of Lille, Saturday, March 10, 2018. Steve Bannon has given a big boost to French far right leader Marine Le Pen, telling a cheering crowd at a congress of her National Front party that "history is on our side." (Photo: AP)

Superman Cartoon Attaching Nicola Tesla.

In 1941, cartoonist Max Fleischer was given a task: create a "Mad Scientist" in the image of Nicola Tesla so the average American will see him as the evil Socialist he is for wanting to create free energy for all.   This is the first of those cartoons. 

And that, boys and girls, is how the greedy capitalist have kept you on your knees sniffing for tidbits of democracy on the ground in the form of consumerism.   You don't a democracy, only the Corporations do... ha, ha, ha ha (evil, sinister laugh -- as you will see is this Superman Cartoon).

You saw it here first folks.

Warning: Don't Eat Slugs!

The mother of an Australian rugby player who was paralyzed after swallowing a slug on a dare is fighting back after the government significantly cut his benefits for medical care.
Sam Ballard, then 19, ate a garden slug at a 2010 party that everyone at first thought was harmless, but later caused the teen to become paralyzed and unable to communicate or care for himself, the Herald Sun reports.

The slug carried a rare infection called angiostrongyliasis, also known as rat lungworm. Slugs acquire the parasite when they ingest feces from already-infected rats, the CDC reports.
The agency even notes that some "have gotten infected by swallowing snails/slugs 'on a dare.'"
The infection caused Ballard to fall into a coma for over a year, according to the Herald Sun.

Researchers at Purdue University believe that the red Tesla Roadster Elon Musk launched into space in February could be "the largest load of earthly bacteria to ever enter space."

Wait, Elon Musk launched a car into space?

That's right sports fans, on February 6th of this year of our Lord, the boys and girls at SpaceX made a public launch for you and me to see!  Oh my!  And what a feast, the car launched into outer-space included a mannequin spaceman named "Starman" after the famous David Bowie song while Bowie's "Life on Mars" blasted in the background of the Roadster's intergalactic road trip.

And, get this: The Roadster is loaded with Earth's orgasm going nowhere?

Yeah, right, they just spent millions of dollars to send Earth orgasm nowhere.

I'm not buying it.

A few months ago I told you about the secret Space X craft made to fly in space for years called the  X-37B. I also went on to tell you that I believe it was designed for the elite (most wealthy and white, most notably: Donald Trump and Valdemar Putin) who are ready to take their family and money to a new planet while we all suffocate on the poised planet they are leaving behind.

They know this planet can't take much more of their greedy ways, and so instead of solving the true problems on this planet, they -- along with the Secret Space program -- have found a new one.

Could this be where the Earth orgasms are heading?

Wouldn't you like to know?

Think about it?   With all this new White Supremacy, of which Trump and Putin are definitely followers of, it's not too crazy to think in their plans an all white world, they have to be looking elsewhere.   Obviously they know we're not going to sit back and let them doing the Nazi gas chamber thing again... are we?

So what is the solution?   Save This Planet, stop letting greed destroy it.  Do something!

There's a starman waiting in the sky
He'd like to come and meet us
But he thinks he'd blow our minds

So Nikolas Cruz confesses to murdering 17 students and teachers at the school he was expelled from.   It's not even news anymore that some zit-faced kid who owns an assault weapon (this case legally), gets his name out of the book of mediocrity by shooting up a school.   The country will morn for a few days, but come next Monday, everything will be back to normal and the NRA will not be called out for why a 19 year old needs an AR-15, a .223-caliber rifle, the same gun used in the 2012 Sandy Hook school shooting as well as most of the other senseless murders.   The A$ 15 is the civilian version of the M16, the military weapon used to fight for freedom by the US Marines since 1983.

So a kid who can't walk into a bar and order a beer can purchase a deadly weapon made for nothing else but killing.

On a brighter note...

There is no brighter note.

February 14th in a second.

Valentine's Day, the Feast of Saint Valentine, patron saint of lovers.  According to legend, a bishop named Valentine conducted weddings for Roman soldiers against an order of Claudius II, who had forbidden them to marry.  After being condemned to death, Valentine cured the judge's daughter of blindness and then sent her a letter signed "your Valentine."

Speaking of healing, on this day in 1967, Dr Walter Turnbull who had began a small boys choir at Harlem's Ephesus Church while teaching at the New York City schools, led his kids to their first choir.  "Music is very magical, able to transform children with no more than lint in their pockets and honey in their throats into grand performers on the world stage, " he said, he did, he did.

In Camelot on this day, first lady Jacqueline Kennedy hosts the first televised tour of the White House.  On this same day, President John F. Kennedy authorizes American troops in Vietnam to return fire. 

In the late afternoon of Feb. 14, 1968 - Valentine's Day - Lindell glanced at his squad leader, Corporal Dennis Fleming. They shouted a warning to each other and dug their fingers into the ground, hoping for the impossible, trying to somehow burrow themselves out of harm's way.

The explosion sucked the air from Lindell's lungs, and the intense wave of searing heat that accompanied the bursting mortar round made those oppressively humid Midwestern summers that always enveloped his hometown of Wautoma, Wis., seem like an ocean breeze. 

"It felt like I got smashed in the chest with a sledge hammer," Lindell recalled, 40 years later. "I couldn't catch my breath. I was numb all over. I couldn't move. I just flopped around, like a fish out of water. My ears were ringing."

Happy V Day People, try to keep your sticks on the ice.

An American says she fell asleep with a  headache — and woke up with a British accent

Monday, February 12, 2018


This video is about racism and how ridiculous it really is when you think of it.  I mean, what happens when the Aliens come and we realize we are living in a very blessed time where we are all one spicy, species. and  that these were the good-old-days on planet Earth, but because of these Racist who choose to see different colors instead of the beautiful garden of eve we've been given, we are really blowing it down here.  Unfortunately, it will take the other species to point this out to us; let's hope they don't eat us.

Ah, February 11th, the two-pillars of faith.  On this day in 1937, the American auto workers won a major victory when General Motors signed the first union contract in the U.S.  The agreement came after a 44-day sit-down strike at the Fisher Body plant in Flint, Michigan.  This victory for the people created a middle-class in the USA.   The true demise of this win for the middle-class came to an end on this day too in 1975 when Margaret Thatcher became the first woman to led a British conservative party.   From day one she privatized England's welfare state and the divide between rich and poor have grown to an extreme since.  But you don't want to hear about this do you, you're doing okay with a decent paycheck so f*&k the rest.   Why for art thou?

Some idea may be formed of the scarcity of food in this city from the fact that, while my youngest daughter was in the kitchen today, a young rat came out of its hole and seemed to beg for something to eat; she held out some bread, which it ate from her hand, and seemed grateful.  Several others soon appeared and were as tame as kittens.  Perhaps we shall have to eat them!

                                                                                  -- John Beauchamp Jones February 11th, 1863. 

February 11, 1693
While the General Court discussed the bounty on wolves, Lydia and Sarah Dustin, Elizabeth Coleson, and Sarah Cole (all of them acquitted on the charge of witchcraft) were transferred from Boston to the Cambridge jail until their fines could be paid. 

Finally,  on this day in 2014, more proof the wealthy know we are idiots:  A massive natural gas explosion in Green County, Pennsylvania, literally rocked the earth and caused an intense, five-day inferno.  No worries, though.  Oil giant Chevron, owner of the fracking well that caused it, found a way to make it right with those neighbors immediately impacted by the blast: Free pizza!  One hundred gift certificates -- "Special Combo Only" -- were mailed with a nice note form Chevron -- a gesture, blogger Will Bunch of the Philadelphia daily News noted, that might as well have read:  The Chevron Guarantee: Our well won't explode...or your pizza free."
