Does Halloween Disrespect Our Troops?


During late October shopping, it's surely cruel to hear "Nice costume!" if a disabled or disfigured veteran. Many tens of thousands of American military returned home as casualties.

The ongoing US Global War on Terror keeps American soldiers posted in Syria, Niger, Afghanistan, Germany, Somalia, Japan, Israel, Korea, Estonia, Yemen, etc., etc... Candidate Trump promised Stateside redeployment of our troops. Until then, America should get serious -- Honor our walking wounded!

Dimwit Brexit

Dimwit Brexit    by Genki

Hail Britannia!
Imperial whore
"The bitch who will go it alone."
Enjoy strutting away
From the dull Eurozone
Gobbling bangers & chips with a scone.

Hail Britannia!
So cloudy & grey
Independently wealthy maybe?
But our leaders are dolts
Boris acts like a baby
Distinguished by rank snobbery.

Hail Britannia!
Diana has gone
The wisest still laugh at themselves.
Still the man in the street
Keeps his master's conceit
As our countryfolk boot out all elves.

Hail Britannia!
Many options erased.
Now we choose life in Grimsby or Leeds
For A Place in the Sun
Watch a telly re-run
Let us pray isolation succeeds!

Did Weinstein see The Trump Scripts?

The rumored "Trump Scripts" were perhaps seen by alleged casting-couch Lothario Harvey Weinstein, or even shopped-around as a possible film idea. A heap of justifiable trouble has now befallen the powerful film producer. (Even close friend Hillary Clinton is quoted as being "shocked and appalled" - link)... Wag that Dog!

The Trump Scripts, if they exist, are approximately 1500 soap-opera style vignettes now being released one-by-one on an nearly daily basis throughout the Trump presidency. (Monday's headline: "Ivana's First Lady claim slammed by Melania!"; Tuesday: "Trump challenges Rex Tillerson to IQ test"). The Trump Scripts are meant to provoke and entertain, while deflecting public attention from the dismemberment of government by the far-right Republican administration of US President Donald Trump.

FAQ Columbus

FAQ Columbus       by Genki

Columbus sailed the ocean blue
The trip brought pain & insult too.

They labeled each non-Christian "savage"
Deceit permitted, homes to ravage

Resources stolen, corruptly "borrowed"
Aggressive theft & murder followed.

Intruders curse our native cultures
Condoned indifference, unclean vultures

As parasites they multiply
Still occupy and terrify

Let's push Accountability
Break silence of conspiracy

Discover crimes Columbus triggered!
And where the Founding Fathers figured

Resolving violence from those vermin
Recalls a reconciliation sermon

Resist extractive financiers!
Who'd sell our skin for souvenirs.

We're taught perverted history
"The New World" -- prior, mystery.

Communities which now rebounded
Can't celebrate the mess he founded

The victims still seek crime review
Since fourteen hundred ninety-two.

Nobel for ICAN - Japan says "I Can't"

ICAN, the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons, has won the 2017 Nobel Peace Prize, after helping to usher in a new consensus, including the United Nations Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons adopted last July (text here).

Unfortunately, Japan has not yet become party to the treaty. Well-prior to the question of signing on, Prime Minister Shinzō Abe's government even boycotted deliberations (as did Brit PM Theresa May & toadying Australia). The people of Japan are strongly anti-nuclear, but they've become a neutered pet poodle alongside the heavily nuclear-armed USA.

Instead of using experience and wisdom, and developing the goodwill of global Japanese activists, Abe's party has officially shut-down discussion (link).

This Nobel Prize draws attention to the fact Abe's at war with his own people, telling thousands of Japanese atomic bomb victims (被爆者 "hibakusha") their suffering is unreasonable & selfish.

Until the people of Japan stand up against their right-wing masters, we must regrettably say they deserve our pity -- and our disgust.

PR Always

Pres. Trump dedicated today's lunch to the Puerto Rican people.
"Most Ricans are doing terrifically well. Great!"

Run Lee Run

Former President Lee Myung-bak 이명박 of South Korea may soon be running again.

Not running for political office... Running from Justice & the Law.

Lee has been linked to illegal activities by Korea's National Intelligence Service (NIS, 국가정보원) throughout his administration. (Here's one recent link to further information)

Wealthy politicians often argue (link) the nation now needs unity in the face of foreign adversity. But accountability is essential to reconciliation; criminality without disgrace is dangerously malignant.

The best strategy before things become too heated is that President Lee accepts a foreign professor's post to keep him away from further trouble...

Lee w/ Won Sei-hoon (원세훈; when Won was Lee's NIS Director)

America Won

Last election, Trump won a public servant job.

He acts as if he'd won America. Trump acts as if every person, critter, and all the lands are now his, property of Trump, wholly open for exploitation by Trump and his creepy family.

Somebody must please tell this shithead, very clearly, he's not our owner, he is not our boss. Trump is our employee. ... and he ain't doing well.

Wicked BoJo Amiss

UK Foreign Minister Boris Johnson, a.k.a. 'BoJo the Toff'
  • wealthy public servant and self-deprecating boob
  • serving-up the British to corporate greed & Americanism
  • could such a clownish send-up truly be dangerous?
  • bad (horribly bumbling) with maths
  • BoJo's savaging of Britain will last a century!
