Halloween Poll

My last poll was about at what point do you turn to cannibalism, it was evenly divided for waiting until lunchtime, waiting until all food supplies ran out, and never. Nobody thought it was a good idea to start early and take a bite out of the nearest passenger as soon as the plane lands.

Hopefully you will never find yourself in this situation but if you reach a point where you think cannibalism is your only means of survival, or if you think your fellow passengers might turn to cannibalism. Ask the stewardess you can have one of those bags of peanuts. Being the sole survivor of a 35 minute delay is a major social faux-pas.

On to our next poll:

A law firm, that specializes in robo-signing Foreclosures, had all their employees dress up as Hobos to mock the people they kicked out onto the street. To get back at them this Halloween people could dress up as the things that scare the top 1% the most. Which costume do you think is the scariest to them?

Illegal Campers.

The city of Oakland sent over 100 police armed with tear gas and flash grenades to clear out protesters they accused of “Illegal Camping”. Dozens were wounded and an Iraqi Veteran suffered a concussion. Judging the intensity of the response, Illegal Camping must be as big a fear to the 1% as Godzilla is to the Japanese.


Not to get off on a tangent, but in a lawsuit I am in, the Plaintiffs lawyer, James P Dady (502) 587-5400, (I can give out his number as he is too much of a coward to return his phone calls) asked this brilliant question:

The computations by which the principal balance claimed by Plaintiff were computed are accurate as detailed on the statements of account attached hereto as Exhibit “A”.

Needless to say Exhibit “A” had no math.

I've seen a trend on comments where people defending the current inequality call math a, “condescending tone”. Mostly because the current economic policies can't be defended against simple math.


A large part of the 2008 Meltdown was because the major banks pumped up the derivatives market to $75 Trillion, 1.5 times the Global Domestic Product. Now they are at it again. Bank of America is gambling their customers accounts on derivatives they say are worth the same as the Earth's GDP. Altogether the major banks have leveraged the derivatives market to be 3 times the Net Worth of the planet Earth.

If the investments pay more than 3 times the Net Worth of the Planet everything is okay, if not... well nobody really knows what a crash that big means, it's never happened before.

They believe that money has nothing to do with reality. Unfortunately every time someone bets against reality, Reality wins.

So, which costume is the scariest to the 1%

Illegal Campers

Shut-up Stupid Sunday: Science Reporting

Dr. X said, “On Earth an object falls at 32 feet per second squared.”

The Dr. X part of that sentence is unnecessary. But in the MSM it is always reported that way.

Tested scientific theories are not opinions, I would say they were facts but a theory is more than just a fact. That an object falls in gravity is a fact. The Newtonian Physics, is a theory that predicts how fast an object will fall. The Theory of Relativity shows why it falls that way.

So to anyone in the MSM who reports on science, I say, “Shut-up Stupid. It is nice to give scientist quotes, but quoting them saying the results of a tested theory gives the impression that it is opinion when it is not. Everyone is can have a valid opinion, but only one set of facts is true.”

A book by any other name.

When does a book by an other name, not smell as sweet.

By Darrell B. Nelson author of I KILLED THE MAN THAT WASN'T THERE


One of the things the Occupy Wall St. movement is protesting is the House and Senate blocking Obama's job bill. A bill which would give local governments like Oakland money to pay their police force.

The police force that the Occupiers want the Government to pay was ordered to attack them.

Cannibalism Poll

Last week I asked how the fed's decision to monitor Social Media in order to muzzle opposition to their policies would effect your use of Social Media. In a two to one ratio people said they didn't give a damn. The others plan on criticizing current economic policies more aggressively.

The simple truth is too many people are hurt by our current economic policies, 90% of America are really hurt by them and 9% would do better under a worker friendly economic policy. So it is impossible to silence all the critics.

On to the next poll:

Cannibalism is taboo in society. For good reasons. If you do decide to become a cannibal here is a quick guide on starting out.

However, in some situations it can be excused. Like if your plane goes down in the Andes and rescue is impossible for months. The question is how long do you wait. Here is what happens to less experienced cannibals:

So the question for today is when do you turn to Cannibalism:

As soon as the plane stops.

Wait until Lunchtime.

Wait until all other food sources are gone.


Like always you can vote on the upper left hand corner of the page.

Shut-up Stupid Sunday: Defending Mitt Romney

I've long believed that it is stupid to hate a whole group of people, because if you get to know them as individuals you can find so many better reasons to hate them. So if someone comes under attack from bigots for being a minority, no matter how much I might hate the person, I feel I need to speak out.

Mitt Romney is a Mormon, the other Republican candidates have been asked if they feel Mormons are Christians. The answer should be, “Who cares.”

Here's a little fact that the members of “God's Own Party” might get embarrassed about, half of Republican Presidents over the last century belonged to faiths that most present Republicans wouldn't consider to be “Christian”.

Taft was a Unitarian, if you scroll through the comments on this blog you will see how modern Republicans feel about Unitarians.

Hoover was a Quaker, another religion that rejects the Trinity, all the attacks on Unitarians apply to Quakers. Except they have been associated with oatmeal for some reason.

Dwight D Eisenhower was Mennonite when elected.

Nixon was a Quaker.

So in the 20th century, four of the eight Republican Presidents belonged to faiths that some feel aren't Christian.

Going further back the first Republican President, Lincoln, was an atheist before he got into politics. As President he did include “God” in his speeches, but historians have pointed out that even while pointing at the bible he didn't say “Jesus”.

He was followed by Andrew Johnson, who had no religious affiliation.

So as to the question if a person that is part of a faith that isn't considered Christian can be a Republican President history shows they can.

As far as the bigger question; does a President's faith matter for the job of President? I really don't see how it does.

Religions focus on the individual. As an individual not killing someone else is a good thing. That vow has to go out the door as President.

Only one President in the last century never had orders to kill enemies carried out, Jimmy Carter. He did order the assault on the Embassy in Iran, but that was stopped by a sandstorm. So even he tried to break the commandment, Thou shall not kill.

You can pick apart all the commandments and teaching in the bible and easily show those things that might make a great individual would make a lousy President.

So to all those who are attacking Mitt Romney's religion, I say, “Shut-up Stupid, Which religion that Romney belongs to is totally unimportant to his running for President. What is important is that he is a bought and paid for employee of the financial elite, who will destroy what little remains of the American middle class, so that the top 1% of the international bankers who own 40% of the world's wealth can carve into the 17% that the bottom 90% have for a few extra bucks. What religion he belongs to doesn't matter, his agenda is to turn the United States into a third world country owned by the international financial elite.”

Change the World

I want a national holiday to honor those who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world. Because they are the ones that end up doing it.

My viewers have picked “Change the World Day” as the name. And it is fitting.

New Poll:

The Federal Reserve has announced that they will be monitoring Social Media: Blogs, Facebook, Twitter and so forth to see peoples reactions to their policies. I guess they don't feel people have been letting them know their feelings about the Fed's policies:

Maybe this picture will help:

The real reason they are monitoring Social Media is to find the most vocal protesters and find ways to shut them up. Know the fed will be monitoring you, will you:

Stop using Social Media

Not give a damn

Be more aggressive

Shut-up Stupid Sunday: Citibank and Bank of America

In New York two dozen Citibank customers tried to close their accounts at the same time and Citibank had them arrested for trespassing.

In California two women who were part of Occupy Santa Cruz went into a Bank of America branch to close their accounts and the manager threatened to have them arrested, they were not allowed to close their accounts.

When an organization charges people money to avoid a problem that the organization sets up it is called racketeering. Citibank and Bank of America charge their customers fees. By having them arrested for trying to close their accounts and avoid these fees they are engaging in racketeering.

Besides the fact that what Citibank and Bank of America did was illegal (hopefully lawsuits will be filed) it shows exactly why the 99% are protesting. The 99% movement is a response to the Banks feeling they own the government. Telling the police to arrest people for closing their accounts shows that the Banks feel that the police work for them not the people. The fact that the customers were arrested shows they are right.

I have made my views on Bank of America clear: I pile upon the Bank of America the sum of all the general rage and hate felt by my whole race from Adam down; and if my chest were a mortar, I would burst my hot heart’s shell upon it. To the last I grapple with thee; from hell’s heart I stab at thee; for hate’s sake I spit my last breath at thee. Sink all coffins and all hearses to one common pool! and since neither can be mine, let me then tow to pieces, while still chasing thee, though tied to thee, thou damned bank!

I thought they couldn't hit any new lows. I was wrong.

Citibank and Bank of America have shown that they do in fact own the government and now they striking down all who dare oppose them.

For thirty years the banks have played on mankind's darker nature, preying on the citizens while turning people against each other. Shrinking the wages of the middle class while pointing the finger at those least fortunate among society. Crashing the economy and blaming the victims. Those who opposed them are dealt with by the very people who are supposed to protect the weak. That has been the plan.

So to Citibank, Bank of America, and all the other banks that will use the power of the government to arrest those who oppose them, I say, “Shut-up Stupid. For all your planning and scheming to oppress the American people, for all your belief that you can steal peoples houses and arrest people who dare not do business with you, For all your years of theft and bribery that makes you believe you are untouchable, you forgot one element! Humanity! Any plan, any organization, any system that fails to take into account the dignity and worth of every individual, well that plan is doomed to fail. We are the 99% arrest one of us and two more will step in to take their place.”

Crazy Poll

"Towards thee I roll, thou all-destroying but unconquering whale; to the last I grapple with thee; from hell’s heart I stab at thee; for hate’s sake I spit my last breath at thee. Sink all coffins and all hearses to one common pool! and since neither can be mine, let me then tow to pieces, while still chasing thee, though tied to thee, thou damned whale! Thus, I give up the spear!"

In my last poll Melville won. So when the time comes that your mortal enemy has outwitted your plans to unfurl your vengeance and you feel death's icy grip upon your soul. Just pull up your ebook of Moby Dick, or your paper copy, and read any line that relates to obsession or revenge. Which is any line after “Just call me Ishmael”.

Although if your final words were “Just call me Ishmael” it would leave your mortal enemy baffled and unable to savor victory.

On to the next poll:

Yesterday was Columbus Day, and after seeing all the furniture store ads saying that you can, “Discover a New World of Savings!” I thought about all the people who have had holidays in their honor. Add to that Steve Jobs passed away last week which reminded me off my favorite Apple ad quote:

Here’s to the crazy ones. The rebels. The troublemakers. The ones who see things differently. While some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do.

Those two things gave me an idea. Absolutely everyone who has a holiday named after them could be called crazy. Columbus was crazy to believe the map he bought could take him around the world. Washington was crazy to think he could defeat the most powerful military in the world. MLK was crazy to believe that equality could be won through non-violent resistance.

They were the crazy ones, and they changed the world.

But there simply aren't enough days in the year to honor all the crazies. The people who look at the world and say, “I can better.” The people that when someone says something can't be done, look over their shoulder and say, “Watch me!”

Call me crazy, but I believe the people who believe that “good enough” is never, enough deserve recognition.

Those crazy fools that don't think the world can be better, they know it can.

Those who look at half a glass of water, and fill it the rest of the way.

We need a National Crazy Day!

Here are some ideas as to the name for that day.

Different Day.

Loony Love Day.

Not Good Enough Day.

Change the World Day.

If you have an idea for what this day should be called leave it in the comments and I'll add it to the poll.

Shut-up Stupid Sunday: Mocking the 99%

“First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.” Gandhi.

The Occupy Wall St movement has now gotten past its first phase. It has grown so big that it can't be ignored.

So it is on to the mocking/fighting phase.

Erin Burnett, former CNBC Wall St. correspondent or “Money Honey” used her new show on CNN to mock the 99%, saying, “Seriously” about a million times as she “reported” that the protesters have no specific demands.

Seriously, Erin? The signs saying, “Ban OTC Derivatives Trading” aren't specific enough? As former “Money Honey” do you expect us to believe you are too dumb to know that the OTC Derivatives played a huge part of the financial meltdown and Banning them isn't a specific course of action?

Seriously, Erin? The signs saying, “Restore the Glass-Steagall Act” isn't specific? The people who have been robbed by the banks know that from 1933 to 1980 when the Act was in place the top 1% weren't allowed to rob people with no recourse. While the act was in place the middle class saw its greatest gains, after the Act was repealed the middle class has been losing ground.

Seriously, Erin? You expect us to believe that in all the years you spent covering Wall St as CNBC's “Money Honey” you didn't learn what these financial terms meant? Seriously?

Eric Cantor (R-VA) called the 99%, “mobs” and “Some in this town have actually condoned the pitting of Americans against Americans”. After fighting tooth and nail to try and get the congress to continue DOMA which no lawyer will touch as it is blatantly discriminating against one group of Americans, you have the gall to worry about pitting Americans against Americans?

Herman Cain said the unemployed only have themselves to blame if they are not rich. The fact that for the last decade there has been no net increase in jobs and the financial meltdown in 2008 destroyed millions of jobs has nothing to do with it?

Then there are the political pundits that say the protesters don't know what they are talking about by wanting Wall St to be better regulated, and say that deregulation is the answer. It worked for the middle class so well over the last 30 years by decreasing middle class wages we just need to do more of it.

So to everyone in the Media that mocks us 99% of Americans, I say, “Shut-up Stupid, confronting real anger over reality with fake stupidity and denial shows you aren't doing the wrong thing because you are so stupid, if you were they wouldn't allow you out on the streets, it shows you are bought and paid for by the people who have been stealing from us 99% of Americans. Stop pretending to be stupid and that fair and balanced means the stupidest rantings have a greater say than intelligent discourse.”

Shut-up Stupid Sunday: Occupy Wall St Coverage

For two weeks now thousands of protesters have camped out at Liberty Park to protest (what else would protesters do) this country being ruled by Bankers, who have no loyalty to this country.

For the first week it was ignored in the MSM and the protesters were arrested under silly laws, like it is illegal in New York to wear a mask to a demonstration, even if you wear it on the back of your head.

When the crowd didn't leave after a week, one police officer Anthony “Tony Baloney” Bologna started doing walk-by pepperspraying of the protesters that were roped in to designated areas and the protests finally got media attention.

I need to mention this was one officer out of 3,400. His actions reflect badly on the other 3,399 officers that are doing their job.

There have been over 800 arrests of demonstrators, not one arrest of the bankers that crashed the economy.

Very few have covered why the demonstrators are there.

A lot of them are recent grads, entering the job market with $80,000 to $100,000 in student debt and if they do land a job they will be paying a larger percentage of their income in taxes than the bankers who hold their loans.

Some of them like having a post office, and are protesting the government bailing out the banks to a tune of over $3 trillion while the post office is begging for money because a law signed by Bush states that they have to fund their retirees fully for 75 years into the future.

Some have lost their homes from robo-forclosures.

One thing they all have in common is they believe in this country, and aren't going to sit by as the wages for 99% of Americans drop like a stone and basic services are being cut so the top 0.1% can enjoy record earning.

What little attention these demonstrators have gotten in the media doesn't show that they are there to protest the injustice of making 99% of citizens pay for the greed and crimes of the top 0.1%.

If they reported on why the demonstrators were there, others might see their point and join them.

So to the MSM, I say, “This is a NEWS event, your job as reporters is to cover the NEWS and let the viewer see what the story is about. The story is why the demonstrators are there. Cover that!”
