More UFO silly and Joan Arc is one closer step to dead.

You would think people had enough of silly little UFO’s, I look around and I see it isn’t so....




__________________________________________________________________________


On this day in 1431, Joan was asked by the militant inquisitor:

Will you refer yourself to the church....

Joan: Concerning what you ask I will refer myself to the Church militant, provided that it does not command me to do anything impossible.

I call this impossible—that I should revoke the things which I have said and done, as they are set down in this trial, concerning the visions and revelations which I have said that I had from God.  Not for anything will I revoke them.  And what our Lord has caused and commanded me to do, and shall command, I will not cease from doing for any man living. And it would be impossible for me to revoke them.  And in case the Church wished to make me do something else, contrary to the commandment which I say God has given me, not for anything would I do it.

Inquisitor: If the Church militant tells you that your revelations are illusions or diabolical things or superstitions or evil things, will you refer yourself to the Church in respect to them.

Joan: I will refer myself to our Lord, whose bidding I shall always do.  And I know that what is recorded in my trial came to pass at my Lord’s bidding,it would have been impossible for me to do otherwise.

Inquisitor: Do you believe that you are subject to the Church which is on earth, that is, to our holy father the Pope, the cardinals, archbishops, bishops, and other prelates of the Church?

Joan: Yes—our Lord first served.

Inquisitor: Have you a command from your voices not to submit yourself to the Church....

Joan: What I answer is not whatever comes into my head. What I answer is what is at their command.   They do not command me not to obey the Church, our Lord first served!

Friday

Good Fridays and bad eyesight.

I am amazed daily at how gullible people are everyday.    They believe millionaire politicians -- about 80 percent, most of the them -- who's main purpose in government is to protect their fortunes and the fortunes of others in the same tax bracket, yet, they tell you they are going to get government off of your back by making it smaller when in reality they are just making it which will soon be serving you for dinner.

I guess I shouldn't be so amazed, that's the way it is, always has been, and always will be.  Someone with the gift-of-gab tells you what you want to hear and you obey.  Take for example this day (March 30th) in 1750.  John Taylor had a successful business with such passed clients as King George II and the pope -- who else could afford a doctor back then, or today for that matter?

Taylor in his Sunday Shirt
Back to my story: Taylor, who had adopted the title "Ophthalmiater Royal," rode from town to town in a carriage emblazoned with painted eyeballs, made grandiose speeches before gathered crowds at each surgery, and left a long trail of blinded people in his wake.  One of them was Johann Sebastian Bach.

The great composer had long suffered poor eyesight, but as his condition worsened, he had the misfortune of meeting the itinerant Taylor, who had just arrived in Leipzig to great fanfare.  On March 30, 1750, the celebrity oculist plunged his sharpened instruments into the musical genius's eyes.  Then he applied a healing poultice of pigeon's blood, pulverized salt, and just a dash of mercury.  After several days, Bach could no longer see.  Four months later Bach was dead, and just as we are blinded by the tax-cuts for the rich, smaller government for the poor, and a global Corporation to control it all,  eight years after Bach's eye-sight was taking away, Handel requested the same treatment and too went blind.

Don't bat an eye, my friend, the illusion has been going on forever, take for instance on this day in the great year of our lord, 1218, in England: King Henry III proclaims the Yellow Badge Edict, under which every Jew older than seven must wear a yellow identifying badge.  (And you thought it started in Germany the Nazis.)

Then on this day in 1533, the protestant faith is created by Henry VIII so he can divorce his first of five wives and still get into heaven.  

On this day in 1581, Pope Gregory XIII forbids Catholics to use Jewish doctors.
 _______________________________________________________________________________

Finally, on this Good Friday, I'll leave you with the entry from Klemperer's "I Will Bear Witness" journal from 1945 in Berlin Germany:

     Today we heard the military bulletin at five, as we were drinking coffee....  The speaker formulated thus: "If we resist, we have the possibility of continuing to live; if we capitulate, we shall certainly die.  Because not only the Bolshevists want to exterminate us, but the Anglo-Americans want to do so, too, behind both is the Jewish will to destroy."  

This said after the Germans had murdered millions of Jews in the gas chamber.   

People, if you continue to tolerate the racial hate of today, we will become Nazis Germany of tomorrow, with or without our eyes.

Hmmmmm, I think I meant "I's" not "eyes."

 



Monday

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.


Saturday

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.

Thursday

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:





Wednesday

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?


Trump?


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?

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.


Monday


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

Tesla Roadster in Space!
