Greatest Movie I never wanted to watch - Fight Club

I do not want to blog about KO today.
The greatest movie I never wanted to watch is "Fight Club".
When it came out it looked like a steroid and testosterone,
underground boxing movie. Well it sorta is, but it is so much more.
Little did I know it was one of the greatest counter culture,
zen, philosophical movies about transforming your life EVER.
Having gone through such a transformation a few years earlier,
I really related to the movie,  I just watched the movie again recently.
There are so many great quotes from the movie, I could write all day.

Howard Stern calls Palin by her true name

"You want to vomit from her" "I don't know how any one would want to see this woman become President." Howard Stern takes Sarah Palin to task for making the AZ shootings all about HER victimization. Gabby got shot but they called Sarah names!! Warning! Howard uses Howard language..I don't like the word either...but he's right on. He praised President Obama for his speech, and explains how sickened he was by Palins video response. "She put crosshairs on a map with representatives names on it. Who does that?"

Message for Christian Conservatives Jeremiah 22:13 - 22:18

I was reading the old testament today and thought this passage applied to the G.O.P. who got their huge unjustified tax cuts and now seek to repeal HCR. Proof again the the Christian Right DOES NOT KNOW NOR FOLLOW SCRIPTURE.

Jeremiah 22:13 - 22:18
13 Woe to him who builds his house by unrighteousness,
and his upper rooms by injustice;
who makes his neighbors work for nothing,
and does not give them their wages;
14 who says, ‘I will build myself a spacious house
with large upper rooms’,
and who cuts out windows for it,
panelling it with cedar,
and painting it with vermilion.
15 Are you a king
because you compete in cedar?
Did not your father eat and drink
and do justice and righteousness?
Then it was well with him.
16 He judged the cause of the poor and needy;
then it was well.
Is not this to know me?
says the Lord.
17 But your eyes and heart
are only on your dishonest gain,
for shedding innocent blood,
and for practicing oppression and violence.

A letter from Alan Grayson

I received this email from Former Congressmen Alan Grayson. He is missed, as one of the only Dems with any balls.

Gabby Was Right, Palin Is Wrong
Dear Raymond,

When I opened my web browser yesterday, at yahoo.com, there was Sarah Palin, smiling at me.
“Oh, God,” I said to myself, “what has she done now?”
The headline was “Palin Defends ‘Blood Libel’”. That’s interesting, I thought. What else might Palin be defending? Cannibalism, maybe?
Well, it turned out to be a report on Palin’s disjointed remarks on Sean Hannity’s show, regarding the shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. I then watched the report. Let me summarize it for you:
Palin: I am so misunderstood.
Hannity: I am so misunderstood.
Palin: I am so misunderstood.

Real Gangstas - Jasiri X

Tony Soprano, Michael Corleone, Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre - Not real Gangstas
Ben Bernake, Bill Gates, Henry Paulson, Tim Geithner - Real Gangstas
Jasiri X and George Carlin speak truth to power. What I referred to in an
earlier post as "raptivism" is perhaps better described as
"Cognitive Hip-Hop" Here's a dose of reality for you.
It's called "Organized Crime" for a reason. They are well organized.
"It's called the American Dream because you'd have to be asleep to believe it" George Carlin

Pentagon trys to turn Kings dream into a nightmare

Pentagon officials try to pervert Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s message.
They try to say Dr. King would approve of our endless War.
He would not, anymore than Jesus would, or Ghandi.
War is a direct attack on the poor of our own Nation.
Today is not just a day off.
Go on YouTube and listen to his speeches.
More relevant today than ever.
A true Christian, a true believer, and a true man of God.
Don't take my word for it. Watch the video.

The Dirty Fucking Hippies WERE RIGHT!

On twitter and to my face I have been called a homosexual, a loser, a scumbag, a commie, a socialist, a treehugger, and my favorite:
A dirty fucking hippie.
As if any of these slurs bothers me. They don't. In fact the last one I wear as a badge of honor. Because we were right. Peace and Love. I don't know who made this video, but may God bless you. Say it with me:
The Dirty Fucking Hippies WERE RIGHT! We told you so...

Surveyor Symbols and Blood Libel

Update: original image removed due to overwhelming readership requests. New image by Gary Larson is used with out permission. I had created an image. I was not advocating violence. It was in response to the Team Palin statement that the cross hairs on Sarah Palin's map, were surveyor symbols when her own tweets refered to them as targets. Congresswoman Gifford spoke out about these crosshairs after the healthcare vote, when her offices were vandalized. Whoopi Goldberg warned that what ever happened as a result of this map would be on the G.O.P.'s hands. The "don't retreat, reload" rhetoric. Yesterday the Blood Libel thing, (Sarah claims attacks from the left are a blood libel) when Congresswoman Gifford is Jewish. I pray for this woman that she will get off facebook and twitter and read the Word of God she claims to worship. Earlier in the week Barbara Walters said she felt sorry for Sarah Palin. The Twitterverse (myself included) was outraged at Walters. But now I feel compassion for Sarah Palin. I see a pattern much like G.W. Bush's. Whenever she speaks, is interviewed, tweets or posts to facebook it is almost always without proper research or understanding. She mangles sentences, statements and individual words. The pattern began as soon as she came onto the political scene. From Katie Couric's interview, to the VP debates,
(I mean she made Joe Biden look brilliant),
to her most recent video about the AZ shootings.
She's not mean, she's not racist, and most important, she's not responsible.
The Shooter Jared Loughner is. Sarah Palin is however, a poor decision maker, tasteless, tactless, ignorant, and unapologetic. In other words stupid.
And you can't fix stupid.
P.S.
If you the reader are inspired by the above picture
to do anything stupid..... light a fart.
H/T to Mojo Nixon and RC.

Stephen Colbert on being a Christian nation


It is my firm belief that Christian Conservatives, have neither read the bible nor know Jesus. (Ayn Rand yes, Jesus, not so much.) I could point to scriptural verse after verse showing how God and Jesus feel about the greedy. Stephen Colbert and Merle Haggard (covering Woody Guthrie) will explain. Funny you never hear about Christian Socialists.
Have a Blessed Sunday

Jasiri X - Republican Woman: Can we relate? Yes we can!

I'm an old white rocker from the 'burbs of NJ. Tony Soprano country.
My Mom and siblings are Brooklynites, Dad's side from Long Island.
Me, the baby was raised in suburbia.
The phrase "Keep it real" comes to mind.
I have never lived in the city.
I love most music but Hip-Hop has for the most part eluded me.
I don't want to read the Jay-Z dictionary.
I am what I am and I don't want to sound like Michael Steele.
MC's I have liked are generally East Coasters from Queens or Brooklyn.
I could understand them. I like Snoop even though I've never been to Cali let alone Compton. But I could understand him and he used to sample Funkadelic and Parliament who I love. But I couldn't relate.
There was no message for me.
Raps about guns, pimping, and gangsterism, (despite my being Sicilian),
had no meaning for me. I was not raised on the mean streets.
Rock & Roll during the Vietnam era was full of political awareness
that few contemporary bands possess.
Which brings me to Jasiri X. Rapitivist Extraordinaire.
The first song I heard (What if the Tea Party was Black?) was like a political blog commentary with a funky beat. His rhyming skills and "flow" are extraordinary. He observed that our media treatment of The Black Panthers and The Tea Party has an unfair dualism. This I could relate to!! One is considered subversive and the other (Ha) "Patriotic". His latest "Jasiri Xtra" can be viewed at His youtube channel here. Jasiri is intelligent, eloquent, humorous and does not suffer Republican fools lightly.
He is accessible.
I wish him the utmost musical success. When and if he branches out,
I hope it's not a fragrance or clothing line.
I would support his run for Congress.
Maybe he's just stating the obvious:
Republican women are crazy biatches.
"Republican Woman" was nominated by the
Pennsylvanian Progressive Summit for Video of the Year.
Watch the video below and then vote here.
Jasiri, Thanks for sampling "The Guess Who" and not Lenny Kravitz.

2010 -The year we lost contact

Well 2010 is over, and I say good riddance.
Sadly 2010 was NOT they year we made contact.
2010 was the year I spent busting my ass in school at age 49 to get a 100%.
In a field with no jobs, I have had one interview in a year. So fuck 2010.
As we look to the future, we ponder the past year. Arthur C. Clark got it wrong.
Who better to tell us where we have been and where we are going than Tom Tomorrow. His cartoon retrospective of 2010's wacky politics summed it up better than I could. Perhaps do the credo action alert or pick up Tom's new childrens book "The very silly mayor".
