THE FAR RIGHT NEFARIOUS AGENDA

Just what have the newly minted Tea Party/Republicans been up to since they were sworn in? Well, one glaring thing is their desire to “take over” a women’s uterus. Do they wish to see all women return to the state of being barefoot and pregnant? What is this absurdity of trying to redefine “rape” or “incest?” What is this attempt to deny a woman, dying from a pregnancy gone wrong, medical care..to have her turned out into the streets? Have these people gone stark raving mad? This seems like a self-fufilling prophecy. Just this summer, the Tea Party bemoaned “Sharia law in America.” THEY are the one’s re-branding it and taking it as their own. They do want religious rule in America, only you’ve got to be a Christian or there is no place at the table. The only people that they want to see have equal rights appear to be heterosexual white males.

I suggest to you that Caucasians in America took a look around and saw that they were not reproducing at the same rates as “minorities.” Then (with a black man in the White House) a fevered push on immigration, guns flying off the shelves, a rise in racist militias, talk of succession & a waxing nostalgic about the Southern Confederacy & the Civil War. (replete with a big ole Scarlett O’Hara bash)

I further suggest to you that the flagrant disrespect towards the POTUS, especially the carrying of open fire arms at an event where he was speaking & the Arizona shooting all stem from the same irrational fear. The fear is of a “colored planet.” We all know that only liberals can tolerate justice and equality for all. Since the President of the United States is obliged to help shape the world, they just have got to get a Republican white man back in there or our country is going straight to perdition! Little matter if Republicans ruined the world’s economy. Now, somehow, Obama did it! No, what he did was win the Presidency fair and square!

It does not matter what President Obama says or does. They have got to take the power back come hell or high water. It doesn’t matter if pregnant women die in the streets, it does not matter how many Hispanics they have to push into the sea, it does not matter how many sick people die, it doesn’t matter how many homeless freeze to death, it doesn’t matter who risks life & limb fighting in wars. It does not matter who gets hurt in this tug of war for power. The only thing that matters is who wins- it is certainly not about fiscal discipline.

Last time that I checked, the Republicans in the Congress couldn’t count the votes prior to taking a vote on the Patriot Act. By the way, the Patriot Act will help protect from foreign & domestic terrorists. Which one of you will be the next to volunteer to be gunned down because nobody knew that a POCKET OF EVIL was fomenting nearby? Tea Party/GOP/bipolar conservative movements, kiss my ass!

WINTER’S CLAW

Winter’s claw
tears at the melancholy nature.

Soot-branches
are ragged, uninvited guests.

Winter’s full moon
denies love’s ample bosoms.

Winter’s night;
the dark gift stealing meadows.

Obsidian-cold
mounts marble grave-stones.

CANNIBAL MOTHER

CANNIBAL MOTHER

Your tail sweeps & lashes, gathering the children
you once suckled. It was you who caused the world
to see their beauty & magnificence because of the

justice embodied by your celebrated statue of liberty.

They were proud of their mother, who was hailed
throughout the earth. Your laws were righteous.
Your children fought wars to protect you, cannibal
mother. Their sweat spilled while tilling your grounds.

Little did they know, that you would seek out each
wounded child for a bloody sacrifice at the altar of
your new, strangely-twisted, lethal, grinding-jaws

Virtue departed as your lips parted to shred your own
children. Surely, you had tricked them into thinking
themselves safe from your newly carniverous appetites.

What do you have to show for your once opened arms &
suckled breast? You have sunk to the ground, with scales
like the leviathan; a Biblical creature of fear and loathing.

Skies cry in torrents for you, cannibal mother. None else
will. All the world watches as you cannibalize yourself. No
civilized society can chew up & swallow their own progeny.

Now, your fierce, scaled children slither reptilian-like upon

your grounds, and you are no longer a beacon of light to the
world. You will not take your blood-thirst to another planet.
Higher intelligence withstands you. You are considered a virus,

now, cannibal mother. You are not welcome anywhere else.

RACE REACTION POST 11/04/08

It is doubtful whether or not McCain or Palin know what will be the aftermath of their “great racial divide.” Sarah Palin, who seems unfamiliar with cultures other than white and Eskimo, has succeeded in kicking up a brutal, underlying spirit of division, hatred; perhaps even murder. In Nashville,  during the Belmont debate, a black man was shot three times (with a BB gun) after being stalked by a “skin-head,” for wearing an Obama t-shirt.  One of these bullets hit his face. He survived. What McCain and Palin might not know is that for decades the Aryan Nation and white supremists have been waiting for a “race war.” I am sure that they feel that the time has come with Obama’s bid for presidency, and the excitement of the minority vote.  Here in Nashville, a black youth, proudly wearing an Obama t-shirt was told by an older Southern white man, ” take off that shirt, boy, there is never gonna be a black man as president.”

Do the Republican candidates, in their desperate attempts to keep a sinking ticket afloat, realize what they have unleashed? Sarah Palin has tapped into the ugliest spirit of hatred and murder that we have seen since the Civil Rights movement. She stepped out of the pages in time and laid a line of division, from which we will all have to heal. Now, should Obama win, how many of these people, who are running to buy guns, are  homocidal? The Obama assasination plot was hatched here in Tennessee. The freedoms that we seek in our privacy cannot be realized because of all of the screw-ball-racist-would-be-assassins that have been stirred up.

How much will it cost the Secret Service to protect a President Obama and his family? Conversly, black people will go ballistic if they feel that the election was stolen from Obama by McCain-Palin. How rabid, we do not know. Some of the young people who are voting for the first time have grown up on a diet of “gangsta rap,” and also have lived this lifestyle. They have invested themselves and their identities into Senator Obama. Who will take this away from them? Not this time, not without an incalculable blacklash.

At the McCain campaign rallies, where the attendees are John McCain’s “fellow prisoners,” we see and hear the virulent “shot-gun” politics which have its attendees with blood in their eyes. The effects of McCain-Palin tapping into the “lesser angels” of the people is something that the nation will have to deal with for a long time. This campaign itself has been very long. The Clinton camp went through the grieving process for awhile before joining with Obama for a unified Democratic party. How long will it take the McCain-Palinites to recover from defeat?

I say defeat because Senator John McCain always talks about fighting. All the time. Hmmm… Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, unattended. His anger is legendary and ugly. He should receive psychological help. Would anyone be able to survive being a POW for five years without Post Traumatic Stress Disorder? So, the fearless leader of the Republican ticket needs therapy. His side-kick, Governor Sarah Palin needs ethnic diversity sensitivity training. Her star will fade. She is not worthy of it. Talk about a polarizing figure. She’s not worthy to tie Senator Hiliary Clinton’s shoes, let alone finish shattering that glass ceiling!

If anything violent happens to Barack Obama, a civil war will ensue. There will be no winners here. Should the Republicans have a hard time moving on, the fringe element that Sarah Palin plays so well to, are capable of violence in the name of God. I have heard repeatedly that these people believe that Obama is the antichrist. I suggest that they reference the Bible carefully. They have no idea what they are talking about. Perhaps, we were not concerned enough when the disturbed young lady carved a “B” into her own face and made a false police report. This is a throw back to when a white  woman who alleged rape at a black man’s hands, resulted in a lynching. Sometimes, it was something as simple as an “uppity’ glance her way.

Why has Sarah Palin been allowed to tap into the ugliest hatred in a country where racism bubbles heatedly under the shallow ground? Why didn’t Senator McCain understand the fury that she had unleashed? There will be backlashes on both sides of this great divide. As I live and breathe, the paradigm shift in America is here and no amount of hate or violence will stop its momentum. The days of putting fear into black voters, in order to keep them away from the polls, are over. The days of throw everything including the “kitchen-sink” campaigning are over. The days of unbridled, unpenalized bigotry are over.

Republicans, step lightly. I advise you to do everything within your power to keep President Obama alive and well… The nation must heal on so many levels, and we are ill-prepared for the possible chaos of the race reaction post November 4th, just as we were when the levees broke in New Orleans during hurricane Katrina.

RACISM REINVENTS HERSELF

Racism no longer spends her time
Washing the blood-soaked spots
From her maudlin dress.
She no longer wears her Puritan
Bonnet of pride out in public.
She has had to reinvent herself
In order to survive in this
Politically correct world;
Where with one touch of the
Remote control, all eyes are watching.

Now, when in public, she is an
Advertisement for the latest dental
Bleaching breakthroughs; her smile
Reveals perfectly even white teeth.
One would never suspect the cannibalistic
Orgy that takes place at her supper table.
There, she feasts upon the flesh of men,
Remarking on their relative inferiority based
Upon the taste that their DNA  provides to
Her seasoned tastebuds and palate.

Racism has changed her vocal patterns
And speech.  She no longer speaks the
Language that reveals the continued
Narrowness of her focus.  She no longer
Prattles on about her “God-given” right
To destroy the lives of others in order
To fill her never satisfied coffers.
Because… all ears are listening.

When the doors are closed, and she is
Alone, she lets down her tangled hair,
Damp from midnight meetings with
Marsh monsters.  We never get to see
Her skeleton body; skinless and soulless.
Alone, she sits in all of her splendor,
As the ruling skeleton of death.

She tells her grandchildren to continue
In her legacy of pride and arrogance.
Her grandchildren have learned her
Tactics well; they can spew out racial
Slurs as well as their grandma, and will
Do so, at the slightest hint that they
May not be superior, after all.

Every now and again, her zealous followers
Will be seen presiding over the
Beatings, and tauntings of the random
Victims of her long-lingering ire.
Yet, she still attends church.  She attends one of
Those churches that are less concerned with
The conditions of a man’s soul,  but are
More concerned with the weight of the offering
Plate as it is passed around.  Her purse is full of
The money from the exploitation of others.

In order to maintain the appearance of her
Latest reinvented self, she will measure from
Her treasury some funds back to the less
Fortunate, of their own money.  Money
Stolen from the systematic exploitation and
Rape of others based on the propagation of lies.
She remains prideful and powerful.  She controls
Boardrooms and financial institutions without
Having to put in the usual public appearances.

She throws her head back and lets go of a
Full-bellied laugh when words like “quotas” and
“reparations” are bandied about.  She has no
Intention of ever giving up her lavish lifestyle.
Yes, she has made for herself an opulent lifestyle,
From the bones of dead men.  She never apologizes
For the hideousness of her old appearance.
She successfully redirects all watching eyes
To her newer look. Deluded, and intoxicated
With the power from ill-gotten gain,
She believes that the whole world
Who watches is deceived… still.

SARAH PALIN IS STILL A MISTAKE

Sarah Palin is still a mistake. There will be ample time for full disclosure when the war declared by the self-proclaimed “mavericks” upon the media ensues. The media will do its homework and the adage, “there’s no fool like an old fool” will take on a new relevance come November 4th, 2008. I would advise members of the McCain camp to beware of being involved in any cover-ups. For you shall be exposed. Do not fall upon the sword for the party, or for the individuals. Do not delay or block legal investigations or proceedings. It will not serve you well.

Delivering a caustic speech, which arouses the nearly-dead, does not mean that the John McCain choice was a good one. On the contrary, Sarah Palin has some more skeletons in her closet. The McCain camp will spend their time putting out the Palin fires, but there will still be the smoke. There will be a reckoning, but not the kind that the Republican religious right is looking for. Do you remember when Focus On The Family asked the good Christians to pray for an “abundant rain, torrential rain, urban-and-small-stream- flood-advisory rain” on Obama’s big day to indicate God’s displeasure with him? Well, it looks as if the rain was a little late and consequently the Republican convention was a little late starting. The rains came and are still coming.

Perhaps people and businesses in the hit areas should send Focus On The Family a bill for damages ensued by practicing this type of prayer. Do you realize how God feels about those who pray amiss? He is not an addled, old man who missed His mark. He chose not to answer these prayers because it dishonored the blood of the martyr, Reverend Martin Luther King Jr, whose “I Have A Dream” speech was delivered forty-five years ago on that same day. It stood as a sign of a fufulled prophecy. God still holds the blood of the martyrs sacred, however, it was Senator John McCain who withstood a Martin Luther King Jr. holiday in Arizona for many, many years. Do mean spirited, hateful, right-wing zealots really believe that someone sitting in a church (in a small town in Alaska) whose preacher tells them that to not vote for Bush would doom them to hell, is capable of being one-heart-beat-away from a nuclear devise? Independent thinkers, the undecided and the indifferent, do not be seduced by this Trojan horse. Do not allow lethargy or apathy, or scales upon your eyes to allow you to relax your defiant stance against four more years. Just stand, then vote. We SHALL be victorious!

McCAIN: THE PROPHET OF GLOOM

No, this post is not about the Edwards affair. Anyone of character and sensitivity will let the throat-cutters have that one.  Although, I do sometimes wonder whatever happened to the pretty, blonde lobbyist that Senator John McCain has been linked with? I am posting to talk about these prophetic words from John McCain on August 4th, 2008, …”Russia is regressing…” Hey, wasn’t that just five days ago? Wasn’t the world made aware of a blow-up between Georgia and Russia less than two days ago?  Well, the answer is still oil!! In my last post, I said that it would not surprise me if the Republicans manipulated a war to put McCain over. And so it is… Georgia (backed by U.S. muscle -also is an exit way for oil by-passing Iran) is in the middle of fresh declaration of WAR!!!  Magic McCain swung into full military command- an immediate meeting of the U.N Security council, blah, blah, blah-is there anything more frightening to the elderly?  Did it ever occur to anyone that McCain had the heads up? I mean, he is in the tank for the administration, no matter what “Maverick” rumors are circulated.  I was wrong. I thought that it would be an a direct Iran affair, not an indirect Iran affair. John McCain is obtuse. In no way could he have  forseen anything but a few well deserved and well needed snoozes. This whole matter reeks of meddling. Georgia is crying for the U.S. to stand with them while Putin and Bush stroll side by side in Beijing? What’s wrong with this picture?
