Look Who’s Joined At The Hip

Why, if it’s not Kym Kemp and Hank Sims. Why doesn’t this surprise me? Is it true what they used to say, “Birds of a feather always flock together”?

I was checking my Reader Blogs and saw a new post by Eric Kirk. When I got to his blog I found this:

To Sacramento for the Busses!

January 14, 2012 in Uncategorized | by 

On January 24.  Kym has the details.

The link, Kym has the details, to my surprise went here, to the Lost Coast Outpost website:

Southern Humboldt Takes a Field Trip to Sacramento

Kym Kemp / Yesterday @ 10:17 p.m. /

Well, I can certainly see that Kym wrote this article, so I went to  her web site, Readheaded Blackbelt and look at what I found – A complete knockoff of the Lost Coast Outpost. What really caught my attention is when I thought to leave a comment on Kym’s blog and got down to the bottom of the page and found out that my normal login was not available and happened to see this:

Contact: mskymkemp@gmail.com. © 2011 Lost Coast Communications.

So it is with some lament that we say, it’s been a trip, Kym.

How Did I Miss This Blog?

TLC’S Place

Here is what he says about his blog:

If life were meant to be boring, we would all be living in Disneyland and eating paste. But we chose otherwise. Enjoy and participate actively in this temporary escapade we call “life”. Adventures are not meant to be spent lounging at the side of the road. –TLC

The comment that he posted  Thursday, June 30, 2011, has been my mantra my whole life:

Silence

“Your silence gives consent.”
–Plato (429-347 BC)

When all of you brilliant individuals choose to ignore and exclude Joe Blow’s observations and comments, guess what? You AFFIRM everything he says. A joke on all of you that I’ve known for thousands of years.

The Substance of a Twittering Democrat

leave a comment »

The Joe Blow Report came to a towering decision this week, wrote a specific comment to see if the decision was justified – it was, so now we move on. From the beginning of this blog our interests were directed locally. Since our roots are in Southern Humboldt we concentrated on blogs originating there. For example three come to mind, (1)Ernie Branscomb (a punk I went to school with – [my school-time opinion of him] – it hasn’t changed in 50 years), (2) Kym Kemp and (3)Eric Kirk. Kym was conversational and seemed open-minded – turns out she’s not, and the Great Kirk, a Garberville celebrity. Go there, check them out. Each has an interesting and informative website. They also have a rather faithful and diversified list of followers. Each are an absolute authority on all matters relevant to themselves. Think not? Just question them or make a critical comment on something they assert, and they’ll straighten you out in a heartbeat. If they don’t, just be patient some of their adoring fans will. Of course, afterwards if you are lucky, you’ll believe that you just managed to escape a lynching.

Between the three blogs and the select people that regularly made comments on these blogs it was easy to get a pretty good cross-section on the thinking and status quo of the local SoHum community. Each of these three people are unique in their own way. Their writings vary with their ages and experience in life. What they believe and how they approach life is clearly evident. In time I was able to ascertain that all three possessed one equalizing quality: The all believe they are of the elite class of Americans. They’re really only wannabes, but that doesn’t slow them up when it comes to talking down to those that challenge their make-believe status.

Not only are they wannabes, they are not very decent to anyone that’s not a groupie. They all open their blogs to anyone wanting to join in on the conversations they post, but when they don’t want to acknowledge a specifically directed question or comment offered to them, they just look down their respective arrogant elitist noses and ignore you. Doing that in public is simply RUDE. It is also indecent, demeaning and derogatory. What bloggers that do this don’t realize is what they are saying about themselves. It is how they are defined, or define themselves, as wannabe little elite gods. It doesn’t take the other participants long to pickup on what’s going on and join in on the circle-jerk.

All they have to do if they don’t want to talk to someone is simply tell them, “you’re not welcome on this blog.” But then, that would require them to lower themselves to the “sub-human” level, and then they’d be admitting to everyone that, in their heart of hearts, they’re really not “wannabes.” When you accuse someone of being a second class citizen and then treat them like some pariah, you certainly can’t expect that bully to be decent, now can you? So, why would they listen to anything you have say? They won’t and they don’t. The fact is, they try to use what you say against you every time.

When I think of these people I am reminded of the first time I read the Charles Dickens’ novel, The Tale of Two Cities. I think this is what’s happening in America. These wannabe Aristocrats will be worse then the real Power Elites by the time this mess shakes itself all out. By then I don’t think it will matter. They’re already doing a pretty good job. They’ve got their “mock” guillotine working pretty darn good too – you either agree to their unsubstantiated, unproven and unsupported opinions telling you what to believe and think or – off with your head.   Read the rest of this entry »

Beginning of the End for Social Security

leave a comment »

The following is an excerpt from an interview on Democracy Now Thursday, December 16, 2010 with Representative Rush Holt. Here he explains in simple understandable language how the enemies of the American people finally win the war.

Here’s the link for the complete interview:

REP. RUSH HOLT: But you heard the President say, well, in a compromise, we have to sacrifice some things we care about. I’m not willing to sacrifice Social Security. And I’m concerned that this does real damage, does violence, to the rationale for Social Security. Apart from what it does to the financing of Social Security, which can be made up in future years, it does, I think, irreparable damage to the very idea of Social Security. It puts Social Security on the table as a bargaining chip along with the alternative minimum tax, the debate over whether the Bush tax cuts should end at $250,000 or a million dollars income, and with business expensing and estate tax rate. In other words, it’s just a bargaining chip, it’s just another item. And, you know, ever since 1935, Social Security has had its enemies, but it has withstood those enemies because of really the ingenious, the shrewd rationale that FDR assigned to Social Security. And this undermines that. It makes Social Security just another program, not—it does away with the idea that Treasury funds, that general funds, are not fed in to Social Security to support it. And I think a year or two in the future, the political support for Social Security will just unravel.

QUESTION: […] Obviously, every working American will next year see, for one year, their pay—this is a sizable reduction in what they have to pay out in Social Security taxes. So then, at the end of next year, as you’re beginning a presidential election year, the Obama administration will be forced to having to increase those taxes again or may end up bending to Republican pressures to begin creating private retirement accounts as part of that two percent return, and something that Obama’s own economic adviser, Austan Goolsbee, has often advocated. Do you have any concerns about that? What will happen at the end of this one-year period?

REP. RUSH HOLT: Well, in January 2012, workers—under this proposal, under this scheme, workers would see their take-home pay go down. I’m not sure who wants to be responsible for that. So, this is called a one-year change. And any lost revenue will be replenished from the general fund, and then the tax rates would be restored to the full 6.2 percent in 2012. I’m not so sure. I mean, it—but my point is, even if you lose that revenue for one, two or three years, it could be made up. But the damage done to the idea, the political underpinning of Social Security, will be, I’m afraid, irreparable.

By the time of this posting tax bill will already be signed – the beginning of the end. On Yahoo News: Bill preventing big tax hikes heads to Obama Fri.

Obama Signs (Republican) Tax Deal, Hails Bipartisan Effort to Grow Jobs

and calls it “COMPROMISE.” I wonder how he defines surrender.

Just Deserts for Israel

leave a comment »

I recently visited Eric Kirk’s SoHum Parlance II blog where he posted, what I thought, was a rather interesting and timely article written by a guest, Bruce Brady called Whoot! Whoot!

Eric deserves just credit for posting a thoughtful and serious discussion about a subject that touches everyone, whether they like it or not. When it comes to that, he does a pretty good job.

Eric and his blog, in my book, are atypical of the many serious and concerned people in this community. Anyone that tries to stay abreast of what’s going on locally, nationally and internationally has good reason to be concerned if not really worried. Mostly, because there is so much cross-purpose misinformation and they don’t think, even if they had the truth, they’d know what to do about it. Voting doesn’t seem to work, because it really doesn’t matter who or what political party affiliation is voted into office they are all essentially the same. They seem to follow a hidden agenda no matter what the majority of the people want. Demonstrations, sit-ins, write-ins, petitions, or whatever other “action” you can dream up consistent with the so-called Gandhi philosophy of “non-violent” protests seems to work. The thing you hear all the time is, “If we can just get our message out. Once the people see what’s going on, they’ll make “them” change.”

I mentioned Eric’s Whoot! Whoot! post because when you consider the commentary, it is a really good example of the kind of thinking, or rather NON-THINKING, and arbitrary and mindless beliefs I run into all the time.  Endless discussions about, mostly nonsensical, conjecture you’d swear came from God Almighty himself – or is it herself?

Never any workable solution – that’s the problem. There is a workable solution. It is a solution anyone can do. In fact, it is a solution that works best when everyone does. Here is an example of one that does work:

Besieging Israel’s siege

“In just a few years the Palestinian campaign to boycott Israeli goods has become truly global”

This is a very timely article about the BDS movement published in recently published in the Guardian:

The movement for boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) against Israel was launched in 2005, a year after the international court of justice had found Israel’s wall and colonies built on occupied Palestinian territory illegal. Over 170 Palestinian political parties, unions, mass movements and NGOs endorsed the movement, which is led by the BNC, a coalition of civil society organisations.

This is what I call the essence of Mahatma Gandhi’s teachings that are consistent with one another: Truth and Non-cooperation, NOT non-violence which conflicts with his understanding of Truth and love.

The Face of War

The Face of Peace

What I’ve learned the 6 decades is that if you want peace then you must first be peaceable. Living in a constant state of self-defense is the same as living in a constant state of war. Israel’s history from the beginning is war. War for the singular purpose of getting all nation states to agree with them, the Zionist Jew, that they have the legitimate right to exist. Whereas everyone that refuses to yield to them does not. If the Jews want recognition as a prerequisite, the they can recognize the Palestinians legitimate right to exist with the same rights and duties and Israel claims. Israel treats the Palestinian people, primarily, as illegitimate, sewer-scum dogs (bastards and bitches) then embargoes them like a legitimate state. The land the Jews occupy belongs to another people. It’s time those people laid claim to that land and enforce their rightful, legal ownership – start acting like the legitimate people they are.

It is also about time the Jews recognize this reality and do what they can to seek peace with these people and stop using the Hamas and Hezbollah as excuses to continue trying to justify their criminal existence. That is while they still can.

The latest from Israel is consistent with their war face. Here’s the latest from Haaretz:

Israel to UN: Lebanon Gaza-bound flotilla could affect regional security

Lebanon aid ship Miriam to set sail to Gaza Sunday; Israel’s UN ambassador says ships linked to Hezbollah, Israel reserves the right to defend itself.”

Why is it that ONLY Israel has “the right to defend itself”? What makes them so special?

Just in from The Jerusalem Post:

‘Next flotilla will be stopped’

By JPOST.COM STAFF
06/19/2010 01:32

Israel tells the UN Lebanese flotilla will not be allowed into Gaza.”

Just posted – Israel’s whores fall right in line:

British government warns against flotilla participation

By HERB KEINON
06/18/2010 05:19

Israel approves of UK’s move.”  The article concludes:

“One Israeli Foreign Ministry official said that statements such as these were significant because they make it clear that the governments that issue the advisories view the attempt to break the blockade as negative, and hint that those who insist on taking part in the flotillas should not later come to their home governments looking for support.”

Here is where the Jews demeaning, judgmental attitude blinds them. People that participate in these flotillas are doing so exactly BECAUSE their governments DO NOT support them. Without a government to fight the Jews don’t know what to do. So they look for terrorists out of terrorist eyes.

When the Right To Self-Defense is a License to Be Murdered

leave a comment »

[Update below]

Beware the rampant propaganda defending the indefensible!

This is the latest developments from Reuters: “Turkey calls for punishment of Israel for killings

For over 60 years the Jews have murdered the Palestinian people with impunity. Why? Because sick American religious fundamentalist are their primary complicit backers and supporters. The United States government decided the Jews had a legal right to grab and take by force of arms land that did not belong to them and justify their actions, supported and protected by America and other complicit state governments, by trying to get everyone to agree that they had the legitimate right. Their conduct within these past decades proves that the nation of Israel is nothing more than a mob of thugs and wanton, butchering bullies; a rogue illegitimate people.

By their own words they are condemned as reported in The Christian Science Monitor: “Condemnation across Europe after Israel raid on Freedom Flotilla

Mr. Moisi says the attacks play into a campaign to delegitimize Israel, but adds that “the main actor in the campaign is the Israeli government itself …. Israelis need to rethink dramatically what they are doing, but the problem is that what they are doing is very much who they are. The killings yesterday at sea didn’t make sense in international terms. But in Israel, in political terms, it did make sense.” [Emphasis added]

Why does it make sense to murder unarmed civilian people? Because that is exactly the kind of sick animals these people admittedly demonstrate themselves to be.

It’s time to stop supporting all illegitimate thug bully governments. When you cooperate with their existence you become responsible for their actions. I, personally, may not be able to directly do anything Israel’s criminal actions, but I certainly can do something about those that I know support and enable them. They define themselves as illegitimate without any right to enforce their criminal behavior on others and must be treated accordingly. It starts with enforcing your own personal boycott.

America’s sickness: “We’re the only one’s that believe them” – Probably because Obama and his thug government were complicit.

Rep. Anthony Weiner: “No matter what, “the U.S. should stand up for Israel” – Maybe Weiner and the U.S. should stand up for the truth and enforce the law.

More examples of the poison and sickness: “Navy raid clear act of self-defense

US declines to apportion blame after Israeli raid

When all else fails, point the finger, call someone a terrorist and then murder him or her. The latest from the Jerusalem Post: IDF: Global Jihad on flotilla :: Israel concerned next flotilla will be accompanied by Turkish Navy

I watched this exchange on MSNBC with Eliot Spitzer: “Talking about Israel with Eliot Spitzer on MSNBC” – Spitzer and his guests were spewing pure Israeli propaganda uninterrupted and unchallenged. It’s time to STOP cooperating with these liars. Note who their advertisers are and send them an email. Time to give these thug bums a dose of their own medicine.

[UPDATE :: Wednesday, June 2, 2010]

Israel has put all the Palestinians into a prison – in modern times it’s called a concentration camp. Take a look for yourself: Line of Separation

In 2002, Israel began constructing a 456-mile barrier to separate it from nearly all the Palestinian population of the West Bank. Click on the map below for a detailed look at the barrier system.
