“A Rush To Irrelevance!”

The rant against women was a new low in Rushbo radiology.

There’s nothing more disgusting than to listen to the misogynistic rants of a fat bigoted drug addict. But Rush Limbaugh’s recent series of rants, calling Georgetown law student a ‘slut’ and a ‘whore,’ are not only disturbing, but low even for him!

His attack on Sandra Fluke, the brave young woman who was refused the opportunity to testify by an uncaring, and basically ignorant, Representative Darrell Issa, (R-CA49) in the hearing he held on contraception, was not only uninformed, but incendiary.

Limbaugh is, indeed, a pimple on America’s ass.

“Siege in Oakland’s Ogawa Plaza”

This article was accepted on The Huffington Post on 11/17. To read it on the HuffPost click on the link.

****************************

Three weeks ago a peaceful Occupy protest was disrupted by the Oakland Police!

On that Tuesday night Oakland and neighboring police departments turned Frank Ogawa Plaza into a war zone.

More than 300 officers from the Oakland Police Department and 18 local departments, in full battle gear, surrounded Frank Ogawa Plaza prepared to evict 100 people from the Occupy site.

Oakland PD, in a press release, cited health and safety concerns as reasons for removing the protesters. It was to be closed for cleaning and vector control then reopened to the people.

So, why were they dressed in riot gear when what they needed was HazMat gear?

“An UnTea Party Revolution”

New article has been posted on The Huffington Post. Read it on HuffPost by clicking on the link.

****************************************

Stop the revolution, I want to get off!

Revolution is nigh and this time it’s not the product of the misguided anger of the Tea Party!

This one is ‘real.’ Not manufactured. A protest the right loves to hate.

Armed with legitimate complaints, too many to count, people — ignored by an uncaring Congress — have taken their concerns to the street.

It started with the occupation of Wall Street, spread to more than 100 cities throughout the United States, then to cities all over the world.

Is this a populist movement?

“It’s All Greek To Me”

This article was posted on The Huffington Post on Monday, 10/17/11. To view it on HuffPost click on the link.

********************************

The Greek Parliament agreed on new austerity measures to avoid sovereign default.

As the European Union, the International Monetary Fund, and European Banks grapple with a plan to avoid the collapse of Greece, and the potential domino affect on Portugal, Ireland, Spain, and Italy, the social unrest in Greece grows.

Austerity measures imposed by the ECB are deep and damaging to the Greek people, striking at the most vulnerable citizens; sparking huge protests in the cradle of democracy.

The problems in Greece and Southern European countries are microcosms of a problem throughout the world; financial destruction caused by a greedy, protected, unregulated banking system.

But, the anger and unrest are not confined to the socialistic states of Europe.

It is happening globally and the thirty year move to a Plutocratic Oligarchy is propagating class warfare.

“Defining Occupy Wall Street”

The right-wing attempts to define the Occupy Wall Street movement!

Maybe the Occupy movement — rapidly spreading to a city near you — defies explanation. But the one thing that can be said, unequivocally, is that it grows daily fueled by the growing frustration at the decline of this great nation and the number of egregious issues that must be addressed.

It is an unrest and dissatisfaction of a Congress that is not listening to the many while supporting the few; a Congress that has been deaf to the voice of justice and fairness.

They are the cadre of hard-working Americans disenfranchised by the system and declaring the causes, individually and collectively, which impel them to express their grievances. And, like the Opressions listed by our 56 signators of the Declaration of Independence, those grievances and usurpations are listed below for all to see and understand, conceding that these will not be the sum of their grievances.
