Lest we forget who was running the country on this terrible day of remembrance

It was an unintelligent incompetent disengaged rich man’s idiot son who was fraudulently elected President and who then started a fraudulent war with the wrong country. His Vice President’s company was then given unfair unopposed government contracts to supply American troops with food and other services making obscene profits after 10 years of war.

Neither that President or his Vice President can leave their own country safely any more as the International Court at the Hague wants to arrest them as war criminals for causing the deaths of hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians.

The country is still attempting to recover from this completely horrifying situation both mentally physically and fiscally.

Members of the same party that brought us 911 and its horrific aftermath, which continues, to this very day have hampered that recovery.

Today is a day after the current President, who abhors violence and war, has been forced to become part of more violence and war brought on by the administration from hell lead by corporate crooks liars and championed by an entire imitation news network owned by an Australian and a Saudi Prince.

This is not bulsh*t folks these are the facts!

George W Bush and Dick Cheney were in charge of the country when the country was attacked. They remained in charge of the country until they so f*cked it up that the country actually decided to elect a smart and very cool DEMOCRAT to try to fix those 10 years of utter destruction under a REPUBLICAN regime.

Now it appears that Americans have not learned the lesson of the Bush Cheney Obscenity as polls show that the party that so screwed them up is going to get back control of both Houses of Government.

Will we be facing the further obscenity of nasty vindictive racist Mitch McConnell and useless John Bohner running this country?

These are men who are threatening another government shut down and the destruction of Social Security and Medicare…and who knows what other stuff they’ve got to keep the Koch Brothers happy.

I don’t know about you but I just don’t get it unless they’re putting cool aid in the water systems.



I am a member of the Producers, Writers and Directors Caucus a prestigious organization that reveres creativity and assists many young film makers in completing their freshman projects. It has been a pleasure to be involved in helping to give back to the industry that I have worked in for 40 plus years.

Yesterday the pleasure turned to displeasure and in a big way. It has to do with the coming FCC vote on Net Neutrality.

It has to do with a small but well organized group of right wing assholes within the steering committee duping the rest of the membership with a series of highly suspect manipulations and deceits and causing a couched and corporate friendly letter to be written to the FCC on behalf of the Caucus. It was rammed through without sufficient debate amongst the majority of the Caucus members. The press has got a hold of it and now appears to be the official philosophy the Caucus.

It is both anti creative and pro business in its intent. This is totally the wrong message that the majority of us members want the Caucus to be known for.

At the Caucus lunch yesterday many of the membership revolted and asked for the FCC letter to be rescinded and a new and more neutral pro creative friendly position taken. This was met with overkill right wing gobbledygook and disdain, anger and snarling disregard for any point of view other than their narrow framed doctrinaire bullshit. Their arrogant words and their attitude were a microcosm of what is happening in this whole country.

Quite frankly I was sickened by the whole experience as we were witnessing our own weakness for failing to be on top of this serious assault on the free Internet. We allowed these dedicated smart and ruthless Visigoths to come in and take over our best intentions regarding the creative community and turn us into a snarling pack of divisive rabid dogs attacking each other.

If you have to “defend creativity” in a place that is supposed to “defend creativity” then something is radically wrong, wrong wrong !

We need to pay more attention before its too late

Power is with the people who “get smart” so help us Don Adams and Mel Brooks.

Don’t know about you guys but there’s something not quite right about this sudden rise to power of ISIS. Where the hell did they come from?

A well organized small group of very dedicated religious fanatics.


ISIS is a splinter group but they have strange pajama like uniforms and now they’re totally equipped with US weapons!!…Hardy seems possible.

Did we train the Iraq army so well with so much money that at the first sign of trouble they just dropped their weapons and ran away? Again we didn’t see this coming?

All that training,,all those weapons and then abject cowardice and instant defeat…weird…strange…And so unexpected.

ISIS is a gang of killer fanatics with some kind of ridiculous credo that an imaginary MALE barbarian God made up for them. This includes beheadings, rape of young girls and slavery all good in the eyes of this fake MALE Muslim God. They’re like a teenage gang running amok in a civilized society. Who leads them? Where are their generals and political spokespeople?

Guys in hoods who are hoods!!

But wait a minute we in the West were becoming complacent as Obama wound down our involvement in the Bush era wars. We didn’t have anyone to hate so we didn’t need all those weapons and aircraft and stuff so much right?

What would get us off our duffs?

It would have to be something really horrendous or we’d just want to watch another episode of Kim’s ass quivering with the desire to shop

How’s about HD versions of innocent Americans being beheaded?..

That ought to force Obama back into a war footing!

Just saying!!


It seems possible the GOP might revisit Mitt Romney as their Presidential candidate again and this means the GOP is even more bonkers than we thought! America would be mad to vote for this weak opportunistic rich guy who changes his policies in mid sentence if  it means appeasing any number of social or political groups.


His wife Queen Ann thinks grocery shopping is when Mitt is looking to buy shares in Albert son’s. Her Majesty is either breeding Arabian horses or many military avoiding sons.

The Tea Party  however is asking for somebody more to their liking they like Ted Cruz  Joel Osteen , Ted Nugent or Cliven Bundy.

It was clear last time that Mitt is a pathological liar almost equal to Putin but without incompetent missile operators.

Mitt is a glove puppet for corporate America. The ideal candidate for the REPUBLICAN dream of owning all of America and invading and occupying CALIFORNIA. Big business wants to play Monopoly with the World but they need nuclear weapons in the hands of a subservient suit. Mitt has SS written all over him.

The GOP roster of acceptable candidates is so weak there’s a rumor that Sarah Palin is contemplating a run they say she’s been up late with a map so she can remember all 51 states.

This country in the hands of  Mitt, Rand, Marco, Ted, Rick, is however moot as most of us know who ever gets elected the country is really in the hands of RUPERT MURDOCH.

The writing is on the wall we may all be standing in front of it if the mid terms take down the Democratic Senate. If the country is complacent enough to allow a low turn voter out , the results will be catastrophic for our fragile and vulnerable DEMOCRACY.

It will signal a wiping out of all the slow gains being made in the five-year recovery of the nations economy.

The monies well spent by the Koch Brothers and their subsidiaries on the people they get elected will be paid off in legislating such draconian measures aimed at the middle class that there will be  a social and economical massacre.

There’s a recent article that more or less sums up the mood of the country at this particular time. It is ugly and it is revengeful and it revolves around “the haves”  being able, with all their money and power, to persuade the disgruntled and the scared white majority in this country that they need to gather themselves together and rid the country of what the propaganda machine  calls the “anti Americans.”

Who are these anti Americans? It’s everybody that isn’t them. They are the born again Christians and in their eyes they are the rightful heirs to the leadership and ownership of their country.

You don’t have to look to far to see them, they ‘re entrenched in the armed forces with their hands on America’s weaponry. They are in the police forces across the country. We know they’re in Congress and the Senate and they own major businesses too.


They have been told this by their pastors and by their undying blind faith in the Bible.

The real elite however, known to the people not fooled by a bunch of hopeless bullshit, are The Koch Brothers and the rest of the business machinery called “corporate America.”  When the time comes they will rule the puppet Christian empire.


The “take over” gang doesn’t have that singularly most important cog that would turn America into their FASCIST AUTHORITARIAN DICATORSHIP…

They don’t have a Hitler. You need a Hitler to enthrall the masses and to have them follow you blindly over the cliff while being untouchable and invincipal.

The Russians have a imitation Hitler right now a “bare chest would be NAPLOEON” and they’re falling all over him.

Folks Putin is no Hitler. He can move tanks and missiles but he can’t move huge crowds

America (some say ) would be vulnerable to a star quality charismatic religious and political celebrity oriented figure right now. Somebody who would speak the jingoistic execptionalism flag waving JESUS crap and sound sincere and squeaky clean. Luckily there is no such animal at this time and to tell you how hard up the Right is…they’re actually thinking of Mitt Romney as their flag bearer again.

Charisma and Mitt never met.

The Koch Brothers we hear are holding coast-to-coast Fuhrer auditions.






In the city of Detroit, we’re seeing another version of the upcoming Fascist threat to America. We may have to get used to this if the American people are foolish enough to actually vote the Fascists into power.

This is not some crazy out there rhetoric, please!

This “one party” rule mentality has begun to grip certain States in the Union and not just in the South, where this week some police in Florida were revealed to be members of the KKK. (Some surprise we don’t think)

The Detroit story however is horrible and extremely hard to believe.

There is no DEMOCRACY currently in that city.

A single non-elected politician named Kevin is running the city’s utilities department. This single individual is in cahoots with big business and big business wants to privatize the city’s water supply.  Yep “privatize water!!”

So this single individual called Kevin, who has all this power, has been assigned to find a way to do this by making mischief.

We humans cannot exist without water and yet the Fascist regime in this major city has begun to turn off the water to the homes of thousands of the most vulnerable and poorest of it’s residents for not paying their water bills.

Firstly, international human rights are being violated here. In some cases no warnings were given to families who were not overdue. But these people just don’t have the money or the resources to fight this cruelty in the courts. They have no hope and no running water.

It’s a fact that babies are getting sick and the older people are suffering and its seems like  the local GOP Fascists want to see them just die off.

It is so desperate the United Nations is actually investigating this human tragedy and the Canadians are trucking massive amounts of clean drinking water across the border. How shameful is this for America?

We are witnessing the depth of the heartless corporate way of dealing with our health, our social standing and our dignity. Starting at the bottom by setting out to destroy the will of the people to fight back…but these corpo-crooks will not stop at the weak and helpless….oh no…they will find ways to cut off the supply of Democracy to all of us…the way they’re trying to cut off the water in Detroit.


They don’t want dissension they want subservience.

They are the royalists from the 16th Century. Their idea of a successful society is they rule from gated communities in Bel Aire and we work for them and live in squalor in Cleveland.

They are the great brain washers and they want to own the water so they can wash away our way of life because they know we cannot live without it.

So forget about the war on religion, the war on women, the war on gay marriage, the war on intellect, the war on science, the war on immigration, the war on health care, the war on Rachel Maddow and even the war on climate change.

The next Great War we’ll all be fighting is the war on water…and do we want fries with that?




As the 5 Roman Catholic stacked Supreme Court judges defy the constitution they’re supposed to be upholding this week the question we are asking is: “Are we facing the dangerous reality of a radical right-wing Christian take over of this country?

There’s a massive general dislike of the majority SCOTUS decision in the Hobby Lobby contraception decision. A decision giving religious owned businesses the right to dictate what their female employees may or may not to with their bodies.

Around the World, for as long as men and women found solace in the ritualistic peace and promise of a religion that counters the thought of the finality of passing, organized religion had reneged on that imaginary promise big time!

Instead “so called faith” in the hands of us mere mortals has been used by so many twisted ideologies and exploited by the con artists for the purpose of just plain making money at the expense of the fearful and the ignorant.

And of course all of this is at the detriment of the really simple holy messages of purity and love that are supposed to be at the core of any deeply felt goodness in people seeking solace.

The tragedy is in the cynical interpretations of many leaders in the various religions that make up this World of disparate peoples.

Currently hideous examples of these interpretations are causing unheard of cruel sectarian violence and are overwhelming the Middle East in Syria, Iraq, Israel and Palestine.

The atrocities being committed in the name of religion by the various Sunni and Shia sects plus the myriad of the splinter groups are beyond belief as are the actions of the supposedly civilized Syrian Government.

All this horror in the name of Allah? But how can Allah takes sides?

Each day at some time all the warring factions stop fighting and face Mecca and pray for victory on their terms. All of these terms cannot be what Allah wants, so what’s a prophet to do?

Perhaps Allah is saying, “Okay until one side kills off the other side, Allah will continue to sit this one out as Allah has done for 1,500 years”.

What about back home?

Right now in these United States we are faced with many different garden varieties of Christianity. This is a young society and so it hasn’t had 1,500 years of secular hate going for it.  Oh it got pretty hateful during the Civil War when Christians fought other Christians and both prayed for victory and then burnt each other’s churches down.

It continued when the Christians committed mass genocide on the Native American tribes from one end of the country to the other where, in the name of their God, they butchered men, women and children who, to their way of thinking, were Godless heathens. This was of course what the natives thought of the Christians also.

It stayed hateful when the White Christians continued to burn down the Black Christian churches and burn white crosses on green lawns and hung black Christians and bombed and killed black Christian children…so nobody’s perfect!

Has this wonderful country learned anything from all of this religious death and destruction going on then and right now worldwide?

Did we learn anything from occupying a country deeply divided into Muslim factions that hate each other?

How could we Christians do this when we are so divided in our own religious believes?

This country was not capable of understanding the nuances and deeply felt beliefs of a complicated Muslim people.

How arrogant and ignorant were the Bush crowd when they went into Iraq thinking they were liberators. They sewed the seeds of the current Armageddon by being completely clueless to centuries old deeply rooted religious prejudices. Strangely, this was kept in check by a cruel but smart dictator. Of course we had to kill him.

Now how far will the reckoning go to curb the rise of this religious fervor here at home?

We may be facing a crisis we don’t even know about although from various corners of enlightenment comments lately have been making a possible wake up call happen.

Face it, the Christian faith is as screwed up as all the others. There are good Christians and there are fanatical lunatics who worship some sort of Jesus and God made up for their own radical purposes.

Do most Christians want to worship a gentle man who preached peace and love for all human beings and pets…a humble carpenter, a healer and who only wanted to have a few beers with the boys…or do they want a Jesus who will return to Earth carrying an assault weapon so he can smite the evil enemy of the people and finally establish a moral government working only on the laws already written in the Bible?

Sounds pretty far fetched don’t it?

But there are radical forces in the Tea Party politicians in Congress.

There are dangerous Dominionist forces in our military all the way up to the Pentagon.

These are single minded dedicated people with one purpose in mind. The complete take over of Government and the forming of a Christian nation.

Too far out far you…couldn’t happen?

So tell us, right out of the blue over there in the Middle East where the hell did this well equipped massive Islamic religious army suddenly come from that might overrun the entire US backed government in Baghdad and form an Islamic government ready to impose an abhorrent form of crazy discipline on a long suffering public.

Did Allah take sides?

Does the Roman Catholic Church majority in the Supreme Court of the United States have God on its side?

Stay tuned, we’re in for a rocky ride and we might have to save the country.




Recently Hillary Clinton was quoted as saying the Bible is her favorite book. To many thinking people this might seem a moment for the reality police to arrest Mrs. C for public pandering.

We all know how important it is to be an “over the top Christian” right now.

There are incidents of the increasing hysteria all over the media, in Washington politics and States controlled by insane fake religious freak governors who may be faking it or not…but needing that core end of times freaky voting block.

Religious freaks making legislation so they can stick medical instruments up women’s private parts in the name of Biblical quotes that don’t exist.

Religious freaks that want to protect life until it “is” life and then not help the life once it “is” life by providing government health care, education and adequate nutrition to keep that life alive and well!

Yes this is “the theater of the absurd” of the 21st CENTURY.

The Right-Wing and the Christian extremist own this title…


The rest of us have a front row seat to watch it unfold.

“The Jesus as a warrior” cult is here to stay. It is in the armed militias, it is in the armed churches and it is in the US Military.

Don’t get it wrong however, this is only a small virulent dedicated branch of a religion, but then again, so is the crazy murderous ISIS in Iraq and they’re lopping off heads and massacring their own people indiscriminately right now.

Things are unfolding in Washington at an increased rate where at a Congressional hearing recently, the representative of the Lunatic Fringe branch of Right Wing Christian Insanity inane Louie Gohmert, was somehow allowed to quote a Biblical passage. He asked a witness who just happened to be a centrist pastor if he believes “JESUS is Lord and Savior.” This unconstitutional ignorant harassing crap went unchallenged by any Democrat on this said committee meaning that like Hillary, all current politicians are scared shitless of being called “anti religious” or Atheist or gay, or vegetarian.

Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal making a red meat speech to a Christian convention recently predicted a “Christian revolution” to take over Washington. He painted Liberals as non-believers and dangerous to the ways of moral Christianity.

This speech (if read in context) should be getting little weirdo Bobby thrown into a dank cell with no chance of a fair trial for 10 years. As we know this is the usual American punishment for somebody who like Bobby fits the description of a Muslim terrorist but is actually a right-wing Christian terrorist.

 THE THEATER OF THE ABSURD…we are definitely in it.

“Holy Take-Over Batman!”

This is a fact and its getting weirder and more dangerous every day…This sounds like a movie idea doesn’t it?

Maybe it is!

How about this as a scenario for an action movie?


Tim Burlington is a young cadet. He is accepted into the Air Force and arrives full of patriotic pride in Colorado Springs, Colorado. In flashback scenes we see his father is an Air Force vet who served honorably flying transports in and out of Vietnam.

He hooks up with Allan Miller a Jewish cadet whose grandparents were Holocaust survivors and whose loving and protective parents were against him being in the military.

“Allan we wanted you should be a lawyer or at least a dentist, but all that flying and jetting around its gonna be very noisy!”

The two cadets become close buds immediately and almost as soon as they settle in they are confronted by about half a dozen squeaky clean cadets with a kind of blank staring look, like an older version of “Children of the Corn”.

“We’re here to ask you to take Jesus as your personal savior”

“If you want to make it in this man’s Air Force you’d be wise to think about this.”

Tim wants to tell them to fuck off and Allan sort of laughs and tells them Jewish people don’t have to do that because Jesus wasn’t into elitism and personal ego trips.

These very white guys and gals can’t see any humor in this. In fact they seem almost devoid of any depth of character.

As the process of their training gets underway, the two new recruits become acutely aware of the fact that there are any number of these blank staring religious fanatics in the ranks and even more disturbingly, in the officer’s ranks as well.

At mess, they’re asked to join hands in a prayer thanking the Lord Jesus for scrambled eggs. They stifle their laughter not wanting to disturb the atmosphere but at the same time this unexpected intrusion is creeping them out and this is only the first week there.

In a series of ever increasingly ominous encounters they realize they may be the only cadets in their wing that are not seemingly mindless robotic religious airmen and air-women figures.

One night there is a mandatory screening of Mel Gibson’s “The Passion of Christ” during the screening Allan’s sensibilities are on edge. He gets up and leaves. Tim goes with him.

As they leave the other recruits accuse them of being “Christ Haters” and threaten them.

Later that night Allan is attacked by several men and women dressed in long white robes and big bad Tim rescues him from what might have been a fatal blow by smashing one of the robed figures with a rifle butt.

The next day at mess it’s easy to see the havoc that Tim caused amongst the Children of the Corn.

Lt. Gen. Mark Hendry the commander of the academy orders Tim and Allan to report to his office.

They can lay this shit on him.

To their amazement even he seems to be in this conspiracy.

“It would be better for the both of you to understand what’s going on in this great nation of ours, so you can conform with the new direction we’re planning to take this country.”

The two cadets remain silent as this is their superior officer and their careers are apparently on the line.

Hendry rants on: “These part-time Christians and damned Atheists are ripping the moral fiber of our Christian society apart and we, as the faithful, are not going to stand for it!

The guys are aghast!

“In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ I plan to take back this country and I will create a new World order in the name of God Almighty!”

The recruits using every bit of their joint will power to tell Hendry they totally understand his wild-eyed arbitrary command for them to join the Christian military and fight for a return to moral values.

As the depth of Hendry’s lunacy starts to dawn on Tim and Allan they have to find out how far it’s gone, how far up it goes and what they can do to stop it. Can one crazy lunatic actually start a World War in the name of religion…again?

Just then there’s a light at the end of the tunnel.

A female cadet, Sandy Crowley sends them a note wanting to meet secretly.

There are eyes everywhere even though the guys are now telling the fanatics that they’re on board. The three meet in an aircraft maintenance room late at night.

Sandy says she is like them. She’s as frightened as they are.

But is she a mole? Is she someone sent to find out if they’ve really turned? They’re not sure until she tells them the following facts.

“Some units of the United States Air Force are now being infiltrated by the Fundamentalist Dominionist Christians and they hold very violent and extreme views.

They are very well organized and powerful but not so strong that they could take over just yet.

But Hendry is impatient and he doesn’t want to wait. He’s planning to fly a stealth bomber to Russia and Peking and nuke the crap out of them starting a World War that will bring forth the second coming of Christ.

In his mind, in the total confusion that will follow, God will make him the leader of a Universal Christian government that will solve all the World’s problems. In his insanity he believes that through a World War, he will be solely responsible for paving the way for the return of Jesus.

Unfortunately while counting on the Lord, Hendry forgot about Tim, Allan and Sandy, who in a series of exciting action scenes burst out of the academy and make their way to a place where they can warn the still loyal military of the United States of the clear and present danger at hand.

Hendry meanwhile plans his flight of destiny.

Special Forces capture him as he kneels in front of his nuclear-armed Stealth Bomber for his final prayer.


The loyalist US government troops fight a spectacular pitch battle with Hendry’s fanatical followers and capture and intern them.

Government leaders talk to the captured Dominionists, telling them that no longer will any particular religious philosophy be touted over another, and that the constitutional guarantee of the separation of church and state will be strictly adhered to from here on out.

The President is briefed on the progress of these talks and he’s told the progress is good.

The President decorates Tim, Allan and Sandy.

Sandy quits the Air Force and goes into politics

In the last scene however we see the unrepentant Dominionist POW’s convincing some of the more receptive guards that if they allow them to escape, Jesus will anoint them when the rapture comes and He will bring them with Him to the kingdom of heaven.

There is one guard standing away from the crowd who looks directly into the camera and says: “Bullshit!”

The closing music strikes up a rousing rendition of “Onward Christian Soldiers” done as a rap anthem.
