As for Southern Heritage the flag above is the actual rebel flag as adopted by the Confederate Congress in 1861. The crossed flag used by the Klan, and white hate groups is another matter. That has to go forever period.

If they wish I suggest  the "Heritage" folks should fly the flag above. It's historically accurate, and doesn't have an overt history of use by hate groups. This I think would be a reasonable compromise. They can fly this over Confederate graves, and memorials if they choose. The other which is actually the rebel Naval Jack which was issued in a yellow, and later red background field is gone.

Gone! Period, and Amen.

I have "Southern Heritage" too. My Dads folks are from Mississippi, and the gulf Coast. We like the 'real' Stars, and Stripes just fine thanks.

Btw the South changed their original flag in 1863 because it caused confusion in the smoke of battle. See Union Cavalry, and Battle flag below. Embarrassing episodes resulted in the melee.

"Historical Foot Note"

When I was a kid in high school, just 16 I went to the "Village" This because I had been warned there were "perverts" there.

It seemed the place to be.

I remember seeing the actual "Stonewall Inn". I couldn't go in because you had to be 21. What a host of missed opportunities to be gleefully molested.

Well that would "come" later. 

I looked in the window, and except for a Transvestite, the 'first' I ever saw. It seemed like any other bar. Yeah I been in bars. *My dear Uncle Louie took me to have a look.

Part of my "Education" into the real world.

Anyway how could I know that two, and a half years later it would be a "Cultural Ground Zero". 

So unlike the Zillions that "claim" to have been there I actually was. Just a bit early is all.

*Stop me if you've heard this one.

It was my good ol' Uncle Louie who was really my mom's uncle, but ya know. It was Uncle to whom I first came out to as  Queer Pervert Maniac. Like in any "Coming Out" moment it was full of fear..even terror. Remember this was 1966 I was about 15, and my world was a nightmare.

Uncle was the only one that had always been honest with me about the world. I was always able to confide in him. Mind you he was one tough guy. 

He literally ran away with a circus as a kid. He did what a generation of early 20th century boys dreamed of doing.  ...came back alive too.

He went to sea traveled saw the world.  'Was in the Merchant Marine Navy during WW2. Uncle was actually torpedoed in the Atlantic survived, and came home to work in the Brooklyn Navy Yard.

Which was his profession when I with great trepidation went to his house with my "Great Secret". I remember sitting down with him in his kitchen. He lit up a "Chesterfield", and asked me what was wrong.

He could see that I was freaked out so he was very concerned.  I remember he said "...there's nothing you can tell me that I haven't seen or done myself"...whadda guy. He reassured me it'd be okay just tell him what happened.

Well I did.

He hit the roof.

He bleeping did, but not for the reasons you'd think. He said, get this it's 1966, and he said to my confession of dreams of sucking boy cock till the *radioactive cows came home.

He said...


"I thought you got a girl Pregnant!"

He went on Uncle did...

"You tell me you're a Sissy?!" "I know that, we 'All' know that. We saw that when you was a little boy!"

"I thought this was about something important. I thought you get a girl pregnant."   

No bleeping lie this is how it happened. My gawd what a family. Good thing I didn't tell him I thought I could fly. That's one thing he might not have seen or done.

Like all my stories they're "Docudramas". I left out some stuff, and polished others, but this is basically how it went down,...the whole damned family knew the whole time. I mean what with my siblings intercepting Queer porn that I'd sent away for, and such...being caught trying on Moms stuff when i was 11 didn't help.

So yeah an open a secret as Liberace was gay.

Good grief.

I should write a damned book.

*(...about them "radioactive cows". It was only in the mid-1960's that they finally stopped testing them "H-Fucking-Bombs" out west.) 

(Bleeping morons.)

(Me, and them of my generation have "Strontium 90" in our bones behind that madness. '...them cows didn't do too good either.) 

Stay tuned.

I remember during my years on the "Air" how I used to 'Plead' for Peace, and Kindness. At least sometimes. My cynical pissed off self would often show up as well as some will recall. I feel like "Pleading" again, but with an edge of the self interested pissed off bleep I have.

So finally I combine my multiple selves.

A huge chunk of our world is busy butchering itself. Even while the very ground under their feet is poisoned drying out, and rotting away.

My solution or my naive hopes expressed on this page of a fantasy brave valiant United Nations, or American Army going in to clean out Isis's Clock!

"Boots Finally on the bleeping Ground!"

Something politically not possible or desired by the major powers. Is just that my "fantasy".
Isis, and the other assorted deranged movements, and parties are here to stay. Unless we address the reasons they came about. Poverty injustice, and the general Geo-political set-up we now have.
The mad religious or ideological forces live, and breath the corrosion of what our world is now. Blowing them up wouldn't much fun as that would be. A week later we'd be facing the "Sons of Isis" even crazier that their daddies.

So here's another naive fantasy.

Give these lunatics a reason to go on other than those mythical "72 Virgins". I mean if those hoards of unemployed uneducated horny young men had an alternative to wet dreams of a personal eternal Sexcapade. One only achieved after one of our drones blasts them to greasy bits.

If they had something good they could get,...without getting vaporized. Odds are no mullah could talk them into tying bombs to their chests.

Human nature is human nature especially for broke horny guys.

My current fantasy is a "Marshall Plan" for all the countries that we just kicked the shit out of. It pretty much worked in Europe after WW2. This because we learned the lesson of WW1. You leave your former enemies starving in the streets you'll be fighting their kids in 20 years,...and we did.

The mess we created over the last 100 years or so in the Middle-East will be with us forever if we don't finally recognize this. Well when I say "we" I mean the West generally. Actually it's mostly our pals the Brits that hold the bag on the Middle-East.

All the terror, and bloody mayhem out there can honestly, and correctly be laid at the feet of the Crown.

Yeah we were part of it...the damned French too. However the Brits are guilty as bleeping charged...Google that history it's all there. They drew the maps. They rigged the elections. They paid off the right big shots. They took the oil.

So Feed'em Educate them Build them Back up.

Basically everything we didn't do in the last 15 years of stunning short sighted murderous stupidity.
Google the old Marshal Plan for the fine details it's all bleeping there.

Sure we can't do exactly the same thing. We'd have to "tweak" the shit out of it all over the place. However as for them guys chopping off heads. If they had a job a home food a motor bike or Chevy cable high speed connection, and pizza we'd all be sleeping a lot easier around here.

You got a better idea let me know.

Stay tuned.

"No Boots on the Ground"

The Islamic State group hanged two youths Monday after accusing them of eating during daylight hours in the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan, the Syrian Observatory of Human Rights said.

"Residents of the village of Mayadeen in Deir Ezzor province reported that IS hanged from a crossbar two boys aged aged 15, and 17 near the HQ of the Hissba", the jihadist police, Observatory chief Rami Abdel Rahman told AFP.

"The children have been suspended by ropes from a pole since noon, and they were still there in the late evening," he said.

"Apparently, they were caught eating."

A placard was attached to the bodies reading "They broke the fast with no religious justification".

Throughout the month of Ramadan, which began on Thursday, believers abstain from eating, drinking, smoking and having sex from dawn until sunset.

IS, which controls swathes of territory across Syria and Iraq where it has created a self-proclaimed "caliphate", advocates an extreme view of the application of Islamic law, or sharia.

The jihadists do not hesitate to impose brutal punishments including beheadings, stonings, floggings and crucifixions.

 (Agence France‑Presse)


It's like it's WW2, and I'm listening to the BBC report Nazi atrocities in Poland...Europe, and Russia generally. 

It seems so strange to me. As you know I was born just after WW2.  When I was hatched, and little the Holocaust was as close to us historically as Bush or Obama's first election. Think of that...pretty close.

So as you can imagine all this has an especially emotional effect for those of my generation. We never thought such would ever happen again. When I was little my folks made sure I knew, and understood what those terrible times meant.

However those things 'did' happen again. Cambodia The Balkans Sudan on, and on.

Just as during that last era of convulsed murderous madness. The person on the street on the whole doesn't know or care much about it. People in the "safe" parts of the world have their own problems. Also all that killing stuff is far away, and none of their business.

However it 'is' their business. It's the "business" of all of us.

I say again, "...History will not be kind to us."

Stay Tuned.

"Kick Butt!", a nice way.

 The Vatican announced Wednesday that it had brokered a treaty with the "state of Palestine," upsetting Israeli advocates and propelling Pope Francis into the heart of yet another geopolitical fray.

The treaty is expected to be signed "in the near future," the Vatican said. Mahmoud Abbas, president of the Palestinian Authority, is scheduled to visit Pope Francis on Saturday, the day before the church canonizes two Palestinian nuns.

The treaty is thought to mark the first time the Holy See has formally recognized Palestinian statehood in a legal document. Vatican policy, however, has long held that a two-state solution is the best road to peace in the Holy Land. The Vatican has referred to Palestine as a state since November 2012, when the United Nations voted to recognize it as a nonmember observer state.

According to Palestinian officials, as many as 135 states now recognize Palestine as a state.

Few political leaders have the moral authority and popular appeal of Pope Francis.
While the Vatican commended the mid-level diplomats who hammered out the agreement. Wednesday's announcement seems sure to polish the Pope's image as a one-man United Nations, confidently wading into turbulent political waters and unafraid of upsetting the status quo.


Well there he goes again doing something the rest of the world should have done generations ago. Of course Israel is pissed as hell. Them morons like shit just the way it is. So do the butchers in Isis.

Peace would ruin business for the both of them.

Anyway the Pope saying he's "Jake" with the "Two State" solution, and formally recognizing Palestine makes the rest of them look like the blood stained shits they are.

I just hope the old guy has some well armed heat he can trust around him. I mean him saying nice stuff about the poor is one thing, but now he's messing with the Big Boy's toys.

Them guys don't got no sense of humor about that sort of thing.

Well good luck Padre, and keep kicking butt!

"We've Moved Ahead,...a Little"

"Amazing Grace"

'This' is the Obama that I first Loved.


Well the "Supremes" went, and did it. Now 'Everybody' can get Divorced! It only took about 40 years. 170 more or less if you count from when Sexual Freedom was first discussed. That by assorted poets artists radicals weirdos, and mystics.

I was never the Marrying kind myself. Though came close once or marrying a lady. ...long story.

Though not much into it given the examples I witnessed over time. Still if ya wants it you should have it. I never saw the problem.

I mean what with folks holding onto their Bibles like they was life rafts in a sea full of pissed off Sharks. Doing that, and belting out hateful curses on folks that just wanna get hitched...hey com'on.
It's not like I'm gonna marry your son, on the other hand if he's sweet can cook, and would put up with me...well.

'But hey get over it.

 Sez my ex-hero Obama, "...“Today,” he said, “we can say, in no uncertain terms, that we have made our union a little more perfect.”

Okay I go along with the guy at least on this.

Mind you I'm old school. An early 70's Unreformed Queer Radical type. Marriage really wasn't what we was after. In fact we wanted to overthrow the whole Shebang. 'But that's revolutions for you...ya never know how they'll turn out.

Ask any Cuban.

Looking forward to "Queer Divorce Court" coming to daytime TV real soon.

Anyway Congrats to the folks that fought so hard for this, and a "Whoopee!" for the extension of more Freedom. ...which is always a 'Good' thing.

"Yes thank you I'll have another slice of that yummy "Queer Marriage Cake" please."

 Sez da Preacher:

"Lord Smite Down these Wicked Ones in the Name of the Gushing Blood of da Lamb!!"

Sez da Lawd:

"Will you Shut Up!" " have some Cake."

"Yanks Would Vote Commie!"

 A new Gallup poll shows that 47 percent of Americans would consider voting for a socialist candidate. Gallup has been polling Americans on their voting preferences for candidates of different backgrounds since 1937, but this year was the first time they inquired about socialism.

When broken down on party lines, a socialist candidate would earn the consideration of 59 percent of Democrats, 49 percent of Independents, and only 26 percent of Republicans. .

This poll comes less than two months after Bernie Sanders announced his candidacy, becoming the first self-described socialist (with at least a decent chance of winning) to do so in more than a decade.
Advocates for Sanders argue that the Gallup poll is misleading for a number of reasons.

While Americans may disapprove of a socialist candidate, they strongly support policies that Sanders stands for.

Fifty-two percent support a redistribution of wealth through heavily taxing the rich, for example—the highest number that Gallup has seen since first asking that question in 1940. And 63 percent of Americans believe that the current distribution of wealth in the US is unfair.

 Part of the reason for this dissonance is confusion among the America population as to what the word “socialism” even means. Many often associate it with the authoritarian Communism of the Soviet Union instead of the social democracies of modern-day Scandinavian countries, which Sanders strongly backs.

Even though the number of voters who say they would consider voting for a socialist candidate is below an outright majority, the fact that the number of Americans who 'would' consider voting for a socialist is at 47 percent, in a country with a long history of vicious red-baiting, seems to suggest that Americans aren’t as afraid of the word “socialist” as many on the Right would like them to be.

"From the Daily Red Commie Gulag"

(...aka "In These Times")



Oh Glory-oskies!! At last the dawn of a True Workers Paradise right here in the "Land of the Not as Free as they Used to Be".

Now I can start up that Arm-Band business I've always dreamed of. That, and organize "Block-Watch Committees" to root out reactionaries amongst my so-called neighbors.

Ah, but we get ahead of ourselves. First we must go to the Library, and perform a "Peoples Arrest" of the staff. Then "Convince" them to tell us where all the Reactionary books, and DVD's are.

The People,...and their Rightful Leaders, Triumph at Last!

Stay Tuned Comrade,...or Else!

"But Wait There's More"

 Islamic State militants have decided to organize a Quran memorization contest during Ramadan, the holy month in Islam. The reward for contest winners will be sex slaves.

The Da'wa and Mosques Department in Al-Baraka province in Syria will use women as prizes. The practice of giving away humans as prizes is called “sibya.” The contest was announced at the start of the Islamic holy month on June 19.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported in 2014 that 300 Yazidi girls had been captured in Iraq. The U.K.-based monitoring group said that the girls had been sold to ISIS militants in Syria for $1,000.

The Clarion Project has translated the advertisement of the contest that asks ISIS “soldiers” to take part in it. Interested candidates are asked to contact the imams of four mosques for registration. The mosques are the Mosque of Abu Musab el-Zarqawi, the Mosque of Osama Bin Laden, the Mosque of Abu Bakr el-Sadiq and the Mosque of el-Taqwa.

The prizes of the contest will be awarded on the first day of Eid el-Fitr. A slave girl will be awarded to each of the first three winners. Those in fourth to 10th place will be awarded cash prizes. The holder of the fourth position will be awarded $462 (100,000 Syrian lira).

According to the Clarion Project’s national security analyst Ryan Mauro, ISIS wants to portray that it follows the true form of Islam. “The contest and its underlying competition demonstrate that fighters are studying the Koran, and that ISIS is not affected by international condemnation,” Fox News quoted  Mauro as saying.

"No Boots On the Ground"

Them Isis guys are going to town on new ways to murder folks. Now it's not just for their whacked out religion it's for the fun of it.

Oh sure they're still doing the chop-chop!

Over the weekend they beheaded another bunch of Christians...this time their kids too.

However now they're trying out some new tricks. Tying plastic strip explosives around their victims necks, and setting them off all at once.

That, and putting people in cages then lowering them into a pool...while filming them drowning with underwater cameras. Hanging them upside down, and lowering victims into acid.

This sounds like there's a gang of teenaged terror freaks sitting around eating pizza'n just making this evil shit up, and then doing it.

It's a Sadists Paradise in Isis-Land.

As usual in history...the Armenia Genocide the European Holocaust Rwanda Cambodia Sudan etc., and all of the little genocides nobody pays attention to. You know a village here a border town or tribe there.

Nobody does shit.

Certainly we can expect nothing from our hero "No boots on the Ground Obama". The Europeans? The Russians? The next World Empire the Chinese....are you fucking kidding.

Any of these guys even thinking about taking out Isis would make a good "SNL" comedy routine.

So if there's an Iraqi or Syrian "Anne Frank" waiting for rescue she is well, and truly fucked!

"Hey do ya self a favor kid."

"If you're hiding in a high-rise...jump!"  Believe me you'd be doing yourself a favor considering what them maniacs have in store for you.

The whole selfish lot of us 'WILL" be 'JUDGED' by what we won't do. Rather than what the frigging evil 'are' doing. ...or something like that.

"Remember","...No Boots on the Ground".


Sweet Dreams.

The Storm is still deciding how big it wants to be. Anyway I went out to the store before it gets too crazy. The wind died down, but the TV sez we're really in for it.

That's a relief.

Whenever these guys say that it means nothing is going to happen. So I'm setting about making dinner. A nice sloppy Beef Stew.

Sorry Mrs. Cow, no really I am.

I'm just Hungry is all.

So Beef Stew. Well actually beef short rib stew. I didn't wear my walking glasses again, and picked that out by mistake. So I have to cut the bone away. that, and spice it up toss in assorted veggies, and whatever is laying around from before.

You ever notice how all that weird nasty crap you got hanging around ends up tasting swell after you dump it into a cooking stew.  Um,...okay sometimes.

Anyhow I just slopped the whole mess into the Crock Pot Cooker, and it should be almost like food in an hour or so.

Meanwhile back to watching "Chappie" a neat flick about a police robot that becomes Self Aware. It's funny scary sad interesting, and generally cool. Get the Blue-ray or DVD. It's worth it. 

 Stay Tuned.


 Severe storms will bring the threat of damaging winds and flooding downpours as they push to the coastal areas of the Northeast through Tuesday evening.

Millions of people from Maine to West Virginia and Virginia should monitor the weather as cold front swinging into the region sparks severe storms.


Usually I ignore this sort of "Weather Scare Porn". However what with the mentioned winds about to blow out my windows at the moment I've, at least in this case, reconsidered my position.


Stay Tuned,...if you can. 

"Holy Shit!"

 TURIN, Italy — People who manufacture weapons or invest in weapons industries are hypocrites if they call themselves Christian, Pope Francis said on Sunday.
Francis issued his toughest condemnation to date of the weapons industry at a rally of thousands of young people at the end of the first day of his trip to the Italian city of Turin.

"If you trust only men you have lost," he told the young people in a long, rambling talk about war, trust and politics after putting aside his prepared address.

"It makes me think of ... people, managers, businessmen who call themselves Christian and they manufacture weapons. That leads to a bit a distrust, doesn't it?" he said to applause.
He also criticized those who invest in weapons industries, saying "duplicity is the currency of today 

... they say one thing and do another."

Francis also built on comments he has made in the past about events during the first and second world wars.

He spoke of the "tragedy of the Shoah," using the Hebrew term for the Holocaust.

"The great powers had the pictures of the railway lines that brought the trains to the concentration camps like Auschwitz to kill Jews, Christians, homosexuals, everybody. Why didn't they bomb (the railway lines)?"

Discussing World War One, he spoke of "the great tragedy of Armenia" but did not use the word "genocide."
Francis sparked a diplomatic row in April calling the massacre of up to 1.5 million Armenians 100 years ago "the first genocide of the 20th century," prompting Turkey to recall its ambassador to the Vatican.

I know some of my Comrades here don't like this guy on principal. Mostly because they feel he either didn't do anything or not enough during the U.S. sponsored Argentine "Dirty War".

Well I like'em.

This cat is up there with John the XXIII who did what the Church would not, as many Jews, and others from the Death Camps during WW2. This when he was just a priest.

Pope Francis actually sez stuff that could get him offed. A tradition in the Church. You know how the Curia shows up to say how, "...his holiness has sadly pasted away in his "sleep".

A bunch of Popes went that route back in the day when they stepped on the wrong toes.

Aw ya knows how complicated this is for me. What with my being a former good "Katlick" boy'n all. Never mind my problems with religion it's crimes, and my screwed up faith. This guy is above, and beyond that noise.

Hey this Joker's the Real Fuck'n Deal!

This here is the first Pope since John XXIII that I believe I could personally speak to about all my shit, and he'd hear me out with a full Heart.

Com'on Comrades the elections of both John XXIII, and Francis,...who btw doesn't use numbers after his name. These two guys showed up at the right historic moments. Heck what's that if not some Mighty Hocus Pocus or just an old fashioned Miracle.

Here's our Hero going to work on the Subway. The G-ddess operates in seriously weird ways.

"Sky Clad"

I'm getting into my summer habits. Basically all the windows shut both air conditioners on "high", and lots of iced tea. The Humidity has socked in pretty good so don't expect me to go anywhere in the long steamy daylight hours.

Well sure I'll be doing ice cream runs sometimes, and maybe the now, and then stupid summer movie. Otherwise I'll see you in late September when the temps go down to about 85f.

Btw if I were 12 or so I'd skinny dippy with my pals like in the dangerous images below. My Dad, and Uncles told me that's what they did down South when they were kids.

I remember they told me this to allay my fears when I found out that the pool at my day-camp was nude swimming.  "Sky Clad" as the Neo-Pagans calls it. It was supposed to be healthy. 

Well that or the councilors has certain interests. 

I didn't mind that really, even in those faraway times us kids joked about such. It's just that for me it was a seriously embarrassing thing.  I got over it in the first five minutes as my Dad said I would.  

See it's one thing if you're the only kid standing there with your damned schlong hanging out, and entirely another if you're in a gang of 20 lads so deported.

Anyway happy Summer to you dear comrades.

" Oh Ancient Rite of Skinny Dipping"

Okay here's something happy to cheer us up after a week of witnessing Racist Murders, and hearing it's the End of the World,...again. 

Young lads above "Skinny Dipping", and reminding us of the era when our kids were safe most anywhere in or out of their shorts.

That, and the brilliant, and funny "Air Swimming Ballet" by a bunch of 5th graders. It's cute, and funny as hell.

Heck I feel just like this old Chevy. Well actually it's a model of a I think '53 or so Chevy made up to look old, and beat.

Still there I am.

Be back tonight I dinner now. Yes yet another Chicken stew...I just loves it. Granted it's rough on the chicken, but in the larger scheme of things I'm sure she understands.

Despite the grand extinction were living in, see post below, ya still as to eat,...when one remembers. 

The above is pretty much the way I cook it. I slice cutlets into little chunks put in olive oil assorted veggies some spices. I dump it all into the 'Crock Pot'...excuse the expression.

I wander away for a while. Then like magic or an ambiguous spell dinner is served! That plus non-sugar ice tea, and I'm ready to go.

Stay tuned.

"It Gets Worse"

 Close to half of all living species on the Earth could disappear by the end of this century, and humans will be the cause.
This is  the sixth mass extinction — a loss of life that could rival the die-out that caused the dinosaurs to disappear 65 millions years ago after an asteroid hit the planet.  

This time, though, we’re the asteroid.

At least that's the finding of a recent study in the journal Science Advances.
The study found that animals are disappearing about 100 times faster than they used to and, ironically,  humans could be among the first to go for good.

Not since the age of the dinosaurs ended 66 million years ago has the planet been losing species at this rapid a rate, said a study led by experts at Stanford University, Princeton University and the University of California, Berkeley.

The research, which comes on the heels of another similar study done last year, "shows without any significant doubt that we are now entering the sixth great mass extinction event," said co-author Paul Ehrlich, a Stanford University professor of biology.
"There are examples of species all over the world that are essentially the walking dead," Ehrlich said.
Humans may be one of them.

"If it is allowed to continue, life would take many millions of years to recover."

"We are deciding," Kolbert writes, "without quite meaning to, which evolutionary pathways will remain open and which will forever be closed.

No other creature has ever managed this, and it will, unfortunately, be our most enduring legacy."


Holy Fucking Shit.

Well there it is folks!  We are truly, and absolutely Fucked. A few posts below I rant about how the youngsters of today having only famine war, and rising oceans for a future.

Turns out I was too optimistic.

The poor uneducated superstitious obese drive-by shooters don't even 'have' a bad future. 

They have 'NO' Future.

Hell this is like finding out that a bleeping big Comet the size of G-d's balls is about to hit us.  Shit with news like this it only seems reasonable to go nuts tear everything the fuck down get shit-faced on booze drugs, and un-safe sex till the cows come home!

Which btw they never will because they'll be ex-fucking-tinct like the rest of us.

What a relief it's all ending, and soon too! 

I can't decide which felony to commit first. Oh so many crimes so little time.
