Memorial Day Rant to Fox News & Tea Party

Interesting how the children, and now grandchildren, of folk who'd have not a pot to piss in were in not for the WPA, GI Bill, FHA, farm subsidies, interstate hwy and military base construction/contracting, mining on federal land, repeal of Glass-Steagall, federal student loan guarantees...even Medicare & Social Security...complain how "Big Government" is ruining America?

Interesting how so many of WWII's "Greatest Generation" were responsible for racist terror, murder, intrasigence, intolerance not just in the South but across this nation? Pretty much mimmicking the red scares, race riots/lynching and paranoia of their hero doughboy fathers from WWI. And the children/grandchildren now deal with the aftermath.

Interesting how this same group of heroes were responsible for birthing the mass-produced-throw-away-drill baby drill culture and economy that is sucking this ole Earth dry and nastying it up? And the children/grandchildren now deal with the aftermath.

Just interesting, that's all...

Wow. I wonder who is actually paying for these government programs? It must be government workers who get paid and then pay their taxes and thus pay themselves.


Do viewers of MSNBC all have "solar cars" and windmills upon their houses?

I always trip off of the Tea Baggers I see here in Tampa.These same fools protesting big government are all probably getting Social Security checks and have government subsidized medical care as well.

Furthermore the folks around the corner from me living in the Million dollar homes with private docks probably have much more to be concerned about when it comes to Obama's fiscal policies. Yet they aren't the ones out there protesting with the stupid signs and such.

Maybe its because they spent an entire career seeing those words on their pay stub saying: "FICA" for their Social Security and "Medicare Wages" for their Medicare and have the audacity to get back what they paid in? Not that they had an option to "opt out".

You suggest that THEY have a problem with "Obama's policies". I wonder if YOU have a problem with this nation's financial condition - regardless of whom is president.

We need a real revolution in this Country!

Yes! Find out about the Movement for Revolution in this country by participating in a dynamic “Put Revolution on the Map” web-a-thon on Sunday, August 8, 2010 from 4PM to 10PM EST.

This web-a-thon is both a fundraiser and a means to introduce people to "The Revolution We Need... The Leadership We Have" Campaign; and the leader of the movement, Bob Avakian, a tremendous revolutionary leader and thinker.

We are at www.revolutiononthemapwebcast.blogspot.com

On June 20, several hundred people participated in the campaign's first webathon. 160 people donated and we surpassed the goal. $10,048 has been raised with almost $1,000 in pledges yet to come in. This was a success and showed the potential of "giving people the means to become part of this revolutionary movement, and organizing into this movement everyone who wants to make a contribution to it, who wants to work and fight, to struggle and sacrifice, not to keep this nightmare of a world going as it is but to bring a better world into being." [From Message and Call. www.revcom.us/a/171/statement-en.html]

We are aiming to raise $12,000 by getting to a larger body of new people to check out the web-a-thon and the movement behind it. Find out about this!

There is also a Facebook GROUP page: “Put Revolution on the Map.” The Facebook EVENT page is Put Revolution On The Map" #2: $12,000 Fund Drive Web-a-thon.”

By God, your right. There WAS a lot of heroism in the Greatest Generation and I don't want to denigrate the great good that they did. But I am a half generation behind them and I confess that I was oblivious to the Racism tolerated and promoted by those "innocents" of the 40s. It wasn't until 1957 when I was drafted into the army that I made a friend of a Black Man from New York that I experienced first hand what had been "normal" for centuries. I was shocked. I was appalled. I was guilty. Guilty of igorance and indifference. As is 90% of white America. What opened my eyes was a simple thing. My friend and I were transferred from our basic training camp at Fort Ord California to Fort Bliss in El Paso,Texas. We travelled by commercial air together. When we landed and entered the airport terminal, I needed to use the toilet facilities. What I saw then has lived with me ever since. There were three (3) doors. Marked: White Men; White Women and "Colored". Not even Colored Men and Colored Women, just Colored! My friend, having encountere racism in New York was still angered and embarrassed. But it was I who was more angered and more embarrassed, for it was MY race that put up those doors. Sadly, some 53 years later, those doors are still there. You can't see them, but they are there. And You know what? I have no idea how to change that.
