Bravo! A Spectacular Performance by Hannah Roemhild – Operatic Virtuoso by Oscar Wallace

Hannah RoemhildWe would love to congratulate Hannah Roemhild on a spectacular operatic performance yesterday at the Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida (There is a marker on the Iwahai Map at Mar a Lago where you can hear a bit about this property). Ms. Roemhild showed great courage and a remarkable resilience as she was hailed with bullets from police and secret service agents. Her ‘Dance Atop the SUV’ was perhaps the most memorable moment of the night but the repeated and surprising power of ‘Smashing the Checkpoints’ left everyone stunned. Prior to the finale, she drove the utterly smashed and bullet scarred SUV to the airport where she showed that a daughter’s duty to her mother is more powerful than ugly nationalist acts – she picked up her mother at the airport before the drama finished. Her powerful performance ended with a show stopping rendition of ‘Surrender at the Inn’ that literally brought down the law.

For those who are unfamiliar – Ms. Roemhild is a the founding genius behind ‘Hannah Supranah’ and is rumored to have studied radical philosophy with Oscar Wallace at Western Connecticut University.

Personally, we find it funny that the media is talking about her big anti-Trump stance based on two social media posts from 2017 – one of which simply said “Not my President” and another that showed that remarkably, Donald Trump looks very similar to Donald Duck upside down. Personally, we also think that dancing on top of an SUV should not be a crime and that smashing a civilian’s car window should not be acceptable action from police unless there is a clear and present danger.

Frankly, this looks like the start of pogroms designed to dis-empower, imprison, and limit the liberty of critics of the antichrist.
You heard it here first.

Manifesto of a Cultural Terrorist by Oscar Wallace

We highly recommend that you read the Manifesto of Peopolism

Be sure to follow and join this conversation on Twitter and Facebook.

The Netflix show Messiah has drawn a lot of attention to this document and the pseudo-fictional identity of Oscar Wallace. It’s one of those ‘this is a work of fiction’ moments that really isn’t. I’ll keep digging for it – so far this is what I have found – I will add more as I find more – please add any interesting bits you find in the comments and on Twitter. You will likely find these reflections on Sept 11, 2001, a regulated society, societal responsibility of the individual, and authority in an anarchist society of interest as well.

Update: We think it’s highly probable that Professor Wallace left several voicemarkers on the Iwahai voice map – among them the ones on the White House in Washington D.C, and Mar a Lago in Florida.


The Manifesto of a Cultural Terrorist by Oscar Wallace

The squeaky wheel gets the grease, or so it is said. Though, in some cases, the squeaky wheel inspires just enough annoyance and loss of sleep that it brings the victim to an epiphany – an idea that might not otherwise seem worthwhile, rational or possible. It may be that the role of violence and fear in terrorism has been vastly over rated by those who use it. Terrorism, after all, is simply a course of political action where no other means is available. Yes, violence is one means – but not a very good one because as the Buddha said – there is no cure for violence except an act of love – and in our world – acts of love are nearly never adjudicated, legislated, or ordered. So, violence, as we have seen countless times simply begets more violence – and those who have the most power usually have the ability to enact the greatest violence leading to spirals of genocide like we’ve seen burst out in Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, and elsewhere. Make no mistake – these are acts of genocide. The bombing and starving of a million Iraqi children is not ‘peace keeping’. We see that which you worship and we despise it.

There is no such thing as an absence of worshiping. Everybody worships. The atheist worships their life. The deist worships their god. The capitalist worships their power. The masses worship their masters. The only choice we get is what to worship. The most compelling reason for choosing some sort of god or spiritual-type thing to worship is that anything else you worship will eat you alive. If you worship money and things, if they are where you tap real meaning in life, then you will never have enough, never feel you have enough. It’s the truth. Worship your own body and beauty and sexual allure and you will always feel ugly, and when time and age start showing, you will die a million deaths before they finally plant you. On one level, we all know this stuff already – it’s been codified as myths, proverbs, clichés, bromides, epigrams, parables: the skeleton of every great story. The trick is keeping the truth up front in daily consciousness. We believe that the sacred cows must be slaughtered.

However, our goal here is not to rationalize violent terrorism. Our goal is to present an alternative: Cultural Terrorism. I am a cultural terrorist and thus far – no one has died because of my acts – nor do I expect anyone to. I certainly hope that no life is lost in the pursuit of a better world.. Cultural Terrorism does not kill people, it simply confuses them and causes them to consider ideas that might not otherwise seem worthwhile, rational or possible.

A terrorist who hijacks an airplane or plants a bomb in a crowded shopping center apparently doesn’t care who gets hurt as long as they achieve their aim. That innocent people are turned into bloody corpses or maimed for life is not a concern. The cultural terrorist is no different. The cultural terrorist, an assassin of the future, an executioner of obscene morality. Cultural terrorism, an attitude, a state of mind – not a set of values to be dogmatically followed. Cultural terrorism is a celebration of the power of the individual to affect the future from the present.

Our aim is to pollute the minds of the public, to sow the seeds of sanity into an insane society. The victims are of all ages – everybody from the cradle to the grave – and we aim to liberate them. Man cannot bear too much reality and as a result of this the cultural terrorist is in the business of providing a reality attack. An over exposure of reality that brings down the curtain- the dirt behind the day dream. No subject is taboo, all must be exposed. No one is sacred. Everybody as well as everything should feel the wrath of the cultural terrorist. The object of cultural terrorism is to exploit situations and people in order to cause a change that no one sees coming. Our aim is to make war upon the concepts and foundations of civilization itself. We will tear into the heart of all that is considered normal but which is truly foul. We are the white blood cells that would painfully destroy bio-toxins even if it destroys our host culture. We are working to erase the conforming instinct. To prevent humanity from ever acting with a lemming’s will.

The cultural terrorist’s weapons are a digital media, film, video, audio cassettes, music, photocopiers, printed words, pictures – any media whatsoever is acceptable as long as it achieves the objective. We are little concerned how much our material appeals to the very lowest of emotions, or how much the material twists and pollutes controlled minds. We believe nothing is impossible, there is no god stopping us, there is no morality compelling us, so we manipulate our environment to its fullest extent. Plagiarism is not only acceptable it is preferred. We believe that you should not be afraid to steal from anyone and that property itself is an affront. Our way is that of the liar and trash receptor. We know that the bigger the lie the better the chance of people believing it but also know that small lies sometimes carry a heavy load. Undercover communication is the enemy of crime not politics.

Elaborate safeguards may be placed at airports to separate would-be terrorists from their weapons. But we, the cultural terrorists are free to distribute our soul confusing information to whom and where we choose. The cultural terrorist is neither benevolent nor evil. Pull the wool over your own eyes in a call to arms. We feel vehemently that an active role of participation should be taken in this struggle by people already interested in this form of warfare. The cultural terrorist is involved in every act of revolutionary suicide while protesting the conditions of an inhuman world. Cultural terrorism is the antidote to this society and our thought-bombs will tear open wounds that may never again heal. Tomorrow belongs to us. Confusion as a weapon. Confusion as the word.

Confusion sparks the need to question. Confusion calling the adrenaline to flow, the blood rush and the life force to sit up and take a break while the soul of present civilization floods. Confusion making us question everything in search of (un)sense. Everything deserves to be probed into. Indulging in whatever subjects we are attracted to. Making our lives more interesting while stripping false meaning from the lives of those surrounding us. No subject holds a taboo. Unrecognizable confusion superimposed on boring reality.

We stand everywhere and nowhere. We wade in cool rivers and do forced marches through waves of dogshit. We provide the tickets for a mindfuck to oblivion … A disjointed, chaotic and rapidly decaying globe is our target. Gladly we take our part in the ejaculation of war in a heedless way. Ours is a wide open mouth sucking the balls of a busty woman. Ours is a wide open gut-wound wrapped around a throbbing shaft of capitalism. Ours is the shitting of the junk food you line up to consume. This stink and defiance of dead unicorns wrapped in bloody blankets protesting too much free candy and not enough mescaline. We face backwards to fuck off from “peer group pressure”. No attempt is made to conform, no attempt to speak explanation or confront truth nor power in the manufactured words that decry consent. Their words and our actions. We fight against those who would control our minds and our bodies, we offer hope to those born into chattel information slavery, and we offer our bodies as the bullets that will destroy your mental infrastructure. In this our weapons are our very lives.

We smash and we run but only to smash and run. We leave the capitalist control systems unable to conduct business and yet uninjured but totally useless. We remain uninjured and leave the looting for those who don’t know any better, stuff is a burden we do not need for fulfillment.

Scary Arab Clowns here

For the record, we, the Scary Arab Clowns think Vago (Chris) is out of his mind too. We think he is twice as scary as us and thus we continue to pretend we are keeping him hostage out of fear for our sanity and lives. There is no telling what this lunatic will do next, in truth he has kidnapped us and forces us to pretend we have kidnapped him. It is all very confusing….to us and no doubt to you.
Thank you for your wonderful compliment on our grammar and vocabulary. We work harder than other clowns to be proficient in your language.
As to what we think you should do in America…by all means you should let the banks fail. Did you know that there is a real estate boom in Iraq right now? Trust us, the banks there failed miserably. They used to have a different currency. While we understand that chaos is not desirable, the truth is that your society has been being exploited and manipulated by bankers and thieves.
And did you know that sometimes you get fed what they think you want rather than what you really want or need? A good example of that is the laptop industry
We hate to be the ones to break it to you America, but your experiment has failed. It took a few wrong turns and now you are not the beacon of democracy you think you are, the inspiration to the world, or the leading edge of the future of the human race.
You are ensnared in a materialistic culture that focuses on the wrong things. Look to your Native American Churches, look to those practicing radical simplicity. We know, that you, like us, seek happiness and fulfillment in this life.
You might be amazed to know that those who have lest in this world are among the most satisfied and that even among those with most, there are those who also find satisfaction. Buddha told you this: Desire leads to suffering. What you need to consider further however is what the desire is and where it comes from. Desire comes from an empty spot in your being. If you think about it, you will rationally know that this cannot be filled with the material things of this world. Better hair, nicer car, more, bigger, and better security on any level cannot fill this void…
Jesus told you to give to God that which is his and to give to Ceasar that which is his…wise words. Ceasar can take material from you but when you give to God, your harvest increases.
The Prophet (peace be upon him) said “Acquire knowledge, it enables its professor to distinguish right from wrong; it lights the way to heaven. It is our friend in the desert, our company in solitude and companion when friendless. It guides us to happiness, it sustains us in misery, it is an ornament amongst friends and an armour against enemies.”
So yes, let your banks fail and learn that which can never be taken away. Plant food, ride bicycles, share with each other, and life will be good.
Oh, and by the way, we, the scary arab clowns, think your guns are very idiotic. It’s like growing poison in your garden.

The Bad News…and the Good News

There are two sides to every coin. Every good spawns an evil and every evil spawns a good. Not to mention, if you take the long view of things, black and white, good and evil…tend to become less distinct.
For example: The bad news is that 80+ people died in Mumbai attacks today. There really is no good side to that, however, it is good news that we have reached a point again where 80 people in a non-U.S/European country dying violently is worth the U.S. media noting. Not too long ago, this would have hardly gotten a mention. Think about that for a second and tell me if I am wrong.
On a different black and white note, I heard a couple of homeless guys talking earlier today at a bus stop and one of them asked the other how many black friends he had (the asker was black, the respondent was whitish), the whitish guy said some definite number. I don’t remember what it was, but the important thing is that I realized that if I were asked a question like that, I wouldn’t even know how to answer it. I’ve never counted my friends in terms of color or religion or gender or any other similar way. It would be easier to answer how many republican friends I have or how many friends that are missing fingers…anyway, it just struck me as a strange thing to ask and a stranger thing to have an answer to. is someone black if their dad was black or if they are from New Guinea or if they are Aboriginal? I have no idea. Maybe the easier question is how many bigots am I friends with…easy answer is none if I can help it.
And in response to the bombings in Mumbai, let me just say that the terrorists just made a huge mistake. India is not a country to fuck around with.

Update on Anarchist RNC welcoming Committee

Personally, I think they should have dressed up like Native Americans, broken into a warehouse and stolen tea, and turned the rivers into a giant tea party. Although, I do like the idea of throwing marbles into the street too. This is why discussing even ridiculous things is no longer safe in America.

ST. PAUL (Reuters) – Anarchists discussed kidnapping delegates and practiced throwing Molotov cocktails to disrupt the Republican National Convention, according to court documents released on Wednesday.
Eight people, described as leaders of the “RNC Welcoming Committee,” an anarchist group, were charged with felony riot, which carries up to a five-year prison sentence as St. Paul courts processed the 300 people arrested in protests during the presidential nominating convention’s first two days.
Separately, U.S. authorities said they had charged a 23-year-old from the state of Michigan with possessing Molotov cocktails, which they said he had planned to use to cut off power at the convention hall.
The documents painted a chilling picture of the plans behind Monday’s unrest, when a few hundred black-clad protesters smashed store windows and threw rocks and bottles at police, marring an otherwise peaceful antiwar march in the Minnesota capital.
“We have watched as a few lawless people tried to overshadow the peaceful protests and the exercise of free-speech rights by thousands of law abiding citizens,” Ramsey County Attorney Susan Gaertner said at a news conference.
Over the course of a year before the convention, the self-described anarchists appealed to like-minded groups in more than 67 cities and met several times to hash out plans, according to the charges.
A separate affidavit from undercover agents who infiltrated the group said members had discussed stretching chains across a nearby highway, kidnapping delegates and disrupting the convention with burning tires, urine and feces, and explosives including Molotov cocktails.
Other plans included posing as workers or volunteers to sneak into the convention hall and block its outside air intake vent. They discussed using street puppets to hide weapons, and throwing marbles to trip up police horses and pedestrians, the affidavit said.
Gaertner said her office had charged 16 adults and 5 juveniles with felonies ranging from destruction of property to obstruction of legal process.
Felony charges were dismissed against 27 of those who had been arrested, which Gaertner said was a function of the difficulty of building a case given the chaos of the confrontations. Another 47 were charged with lesser gross misdemeanor crimes, St. Paul city attorney John Choi said.
Roughly 20 of those arrested had refused to give their real names, Choi said.
More protests are expected on Thursday, when John McCain will accept the Republican nomination for the November 4 election.

Carter's warning, Prices rising, and Bin Laden's driver.

If you enjoy conspiracy talk, you certainly know about the warning that Dwight Eisenhauer gave regarding the military industrial complex. A lesser known warning came from Jimmy Carter about the dangers of energy consumption.

Check this out from Drudge:

“The energy crisis is real. It is worldwide. It is a clear and present danger to our nation. These are facts and we simply must face them.” — Jimmy Carter, July 15, 1979
History has born Carter to be dead on.
In that same speech Carter proposed a cap on foreign oil imports and an ambitious conservation plan that included a 48-mile-per-gallon fuel efficiency standard for cars.
If that amount of savings was going on, United States would have no need to import a drop of oil from the Middle East

In the United States, donsumer prices were 5% higher than a year ago and rose 1.1% on a monthly basis, the Labor Department said yesterday. Energy prices were the main driver of price growth, and were 6.6% higher in June as the cost of petrol, natural gas and heating oil increased. As a result, the average weekly wages, after adjusting for inflation, fell by 0.9% in June – the biggest monthly decline in 24 years.
How does that feel? At least now you know you aren’t imagining it. I didn’t have the right tool to fix a flat on my moped recently and when I took it to the mechanic today it turns out he had raised the price of labor since two weeks ago when I talked to him. Cost then, $60 to repair the flat and put a new tire and tube on the bike. Cost now, right around $80. When I asked him why the price had gone up so much he told me that his prices had gone up because his expenses have gone up. I still feel like I’m being gouged but I had just pushed the damn thing a couple of miles to get it there. For the extra $20 I would have bought the god damn tool I needed. I’ll admit it though, I didn’t want to push it all the way back home. It’s more than the cost to replace a tire on a fucking car though! At least it gets 100 mpg.

In any event, I wouldn’t have thought twice about spending that $20 on a couple of drinks or a decent bottle of wine, so I let it go…mostly. I think I’ll be investing in some tools soon though.
Have you ever heard of Hawaiian Shave Ice? Well, now you can get Martian Shave Ice. The new Nasa lander is scraping ice from the surface of the red planet. So far the only flavor is dirt.
The stock market wizards keep pulling new tricks from their hats to keep stocks above the 11,000 mark. This is a psychological move since many investors now look at a drop below 11k as indicating with certainty that we are in a recession. I have no idea how they managed to get the cost of oil to drop with these bizarre rumours that the soured economy is lessening demand. You would think people would be conserving…but really, the big spenders in energy consumption haven’t slowed all that much. It’s all smoke and mirrors and despite the disdain I feel for the magicians tricking us, I tip my hat to them for pulling it off again. How long can they hold on?
The smoke and mirrors are good, no doubt, but see how it makes you feel to read about Osama Bin Laden’s driver giving testimony. The terror suspect is accused of conspiring with al Qaeda and providing material support for terror because he served as bin Laden’s $200-a-month driver and occasional bodyguard. Conviction could carry life imprisonment.

At this point I should admit that while was driving for a limousine service, several of my charges were war criminals within the Bush administration. I was not happy about the situation but I needed the job so I shuttled them back and forth from five diamond hotels to the U.S. Pacific Command (PacCom) for meetings with other big wigs. I know, shame on me for providing material support to Bush and his cronies. Funny that with all their security they either didn’t know or didn’t care that I was even then running a blog called Terror Suspect.

Banning the homeless, stealing coffee beans, Japanese suicide, Russian enemas, and ecoterror.


Honolulu council member Rod Tam has introduced a bill that would ban sleeping or lying down at bus stops. I think this is a great idea. Bus stops should be for bus riders. And they should look like this:

The problem with letting the homeless use bus stops as shelter is that it discourages other folks from riding the bus because not only do they sleep there, they shit and piss nearby, they leave their garbage (often their belongings), and they scare the hell out of timid commuters who might otherwise leave their cars at home.
We have enough cars on Oahu to circle the island 8.5 times if lined up end to end. That’s a lot of fucking cars. Way too many.
Tam is a controversial guy, either ignorant or naive depending on who you listen to. Recently he used the term ‘wet backs’ to describe hispanics, he claimed it was only because he was naive about the origin of the term…as odd as it sounds, that’s possible here in Hawaii. Local culture is pretty different from North America and sometimes folks here are pretty clueless about the political correct way of doing things. By nature, Hawaii is not a politically correct place. There is along history of people mercilessly making fun of each other here and nothing is off limits, not ethnicity, not gender, not deformities, not even sexual preference. All that is changing though.

Elsewhere in Hawaii someone stole half a ton of green coffee beans from Kailua-Kona. Big Island police are looking for 24-year-old Donimic Brooks, who is believed to be involved in the heist of the green coffee beans. My suggestion is look for the guy with the giant mug of coffee that he can’t hold without spilling.
Over in the other part of Hawaii, that we call Japan, there is an epidemic of the elderly killing themselves. I think it’s a good idea. The Japanese are sensible people. Always have been except for that idea about bombing Pearl Harbor.

And, those not so sensible Russians have unveiled a monument to the enema.

Tehy love to make statues in Russia, if not Lenin than an enema bulb. Lovely nurses though…they almost make it seem appealing.
Not so enjoyable is the conviction of Briana Waters, 32, of Oakland, Calif., in Tacoma (fair city of my birth). She was an Evergreen State College student who acted as a lookout in 2001 when others set fire to the Center for Urban Horticulture in Seattle. The Earth Liberation Front claimed responsibility, saying that researchers there were genetically modifying poplar trees.

Severed feet and suicidal skydive instructors

Canadian cops are baffled and rightly creeped out as a fifth human foot has washed up in Southwestern Canada. If you or a loved one is missing a foot, please let the Mounties in Vancouver know ASAP.

Police were close-lipped about the type of shoe encasing the fifth foot, its size and its gender — but did reveal that it is the first left foot to be found.
The other four were all right feet encased in running shoes, and beginning last August they washed up on area islands, said Annie Linteau of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, Canada’s national police force.

A little south in Ashland, Oregon, Jen Moss, known as “The Naked Lady” is raising controversy with her plans to be in Ashland’s Fourth of July parade free and independent of all clothing but a hemp G-string.

Even further south, here is a beautiful piece of vandalism. Hats off to the genius who put a picture of a sailor over the ‘sub’ in submarine.

And, just in case anyone thinks there is nothing else in San Francisco besides same sex weddings, don’t forget about the hipsters.

And of course there are always the dogs in wigs.

Here is what I think a suicidal sky dive instructor’s stream of consciousness might sound like:

Maybe I shouldn’t pull the cord. Nah. That’s crazy. I would never do that. Somewhat disturbing to think about what it would be like to do it though. It wouldn’t really be hard. I mean, it wouldn’t haunt me because I would be dead. Right? I mean, that’s what it is.
But to not pull the cord. The strength it will take to not pull the ripcord. To not choose life at the last moment. There really can’t be much more difficult than that. I have my doubts about whether I could really do it.
Fuck, I’m late. Fuck it, today will be my 1000th dive. Cool. Shit. Gotta go. I’m sick of working. Sick of having to be anywhere.
It’s a cool job though. I do have that going. I’ve got to be there, but it’s pretty cool. I just hate strapping myself to strangers and pretending to feel the thrill of their first airplane jump as if it is my first time too. Fuck. This all used to seem so cool.

This was penned after I took my first skydive. I was strapped to a guy who told me it was his 1000th dive. He didn’t seem very keen on living. We jumped out of the plane after the other skydivers and we landed first. As they pulled their ripcords we plummeted past them one after the other.

Michael Moore on why he is voting for Obama

This letter comes from Moores website at michaelmoore.com. The best part of it is that the Clintons brought Jeremiah Wright to the White House for spiritual counseling. Why haven’t we heard about that before? Is it because they are white? Personally, I think black people have more than enough reason to be pissed and they weren’t the only people in America that were glad to see anyone try to knock us to our senses. It’s just a shame it didn’t work. It knocked whatever sense we had left right out of us.

My Vote’s for Obama (if I could vote) …by Michael Moore
Friends,
I don’t get to vote for President this primary season. I live in Michigan. The party leaders (both here and in D.C.) couldn’t get their act together, and thus our votes will not be counted.
So, if you live in Pennsylvania, can you do me a favor? Will you please cast my vote — and yours — on Tuesday for Senator Barack Obama?
I haven’t spoken publicly ’til now as to who I would vote for, primarily for two reasons: 1) Who cares?; and 2) I (and most people I know) don’t give a rat’s ass whose name is on the ballot in November, as long as there’s a picture of JFK and FDR riding a donkey at the top of the ballot, and the word “Democratic” next to the candidate’s name.
Seriously, I know so many people who don’t care if the name under the Big “D” is Dancer, Prancer, Clinton or Blitzen. It can be Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Barry Obama or the Dalai Lama.
Well, that sounded good last year, but over the past two months, the actions and words of Hillary Clinton have gone from being merely disappointing to downright disgusting. I guess the debate last week was the final straw. I’ve watched Senator Clinton and her husband play this game of appealing to the worst side of white people, but last Wednesday, when she hurled the name “Farrakhan” out of nowhere, well that’s when the silly season came to an early end for me. She said the “F” word to scare white people, pure and simple. Of course, Obama has no connection to Farrakhan. But, according to Senator Clinton, Obama’s pastor does — AND the “church bulletin” once included a Los Angeles Times op-ed from some guy with Hamas! No, not the church bulletin!
This sleazy attempt to smear Obama was brilliantly explained the following night by Stephen Colbert. He pointed out that if Obama is supported by Ted Kennedy, who is Catholic, and the Catholic Church is led by a Pope who was in the Hitler Youth, that can mean only one thing: OBAMA LOVES HITLER!
Yes, Senator Clinton, that’s how you sounded. Like you were nuts. Like you were a bigot stoking the fires of stupidity. How sad that I would ever have to write those words about you. You have devoted your life to good causes and good deeds. And now to throw it all away for an office you can’t win unless you smear the black man so much that the superdelegates cry “Uncle (Tom)” and give it all to you.
But that can’t happen. You cast your die when you voted to start this bloody war. When you did that you were like Moses who lost it for a moment and, because of that, was prohibited from entering the Promised Land.
How sad for a country that wanted to see the first woman elected to the White House. That day will come — but it won’t be you. We’ll have to wait for the current Democratic governor of Kansas to run in 2016 (you read it here first!).
There are those who say Obama isn’t ready, or he’s voted wrong on this or that. But that’s looking at the trees and not the forest. What we are witnessing is not just a candidate but a profound, massive public movement for change. My endorsement is more for Obama The Movement than it is for Obama the candidate.
That is not to take anything away from this exceptional man. But what’s going on is bigger than him at this point, and that’s a good thing for the country. Because, when he wins in November, that Obama Movement is going to have to stay alert and active. Corporate America is not going to give up their hold on our government just because we say so. President Obama is going to need a nation of millions to stand behind him.
I know some of you will say, ‘Mike, what have the Democrats done to deserve our vote?’ That’s a damn good question. In November of ’06, the country loudly sent a message that we wanted the war to end. Yet the Democrats have done nothing. So why should we be so eager to line up happily behind them?
I’ll tell you why. Because I can’t stand one more friggin’ minute of this administration and the permanent, irreversible damage it has done to our people and to this world. I’m almost at the point where I don’t care if the Democrats don’t have a backbone or a kneebone or a thought in their dizzy little heads. Just as long as their name ain’t “Bush” and the word “Republican” is not beside theirs on the ballot, then that’s good enough for me.
I, like the majority of Americans, have been pummeled senseless for 8 long years. That’s why I will join millions of citizens and stagger into the voting booth come November, like a boxer in the 12th round, all bloodied and bruised with one eye swollen shut, looking for the only thing that matters — that big “D” on the ballot.
Don’t get me wrong. I lost my rose-colored glasses a long time ago.
It’s foolish to see the Democrats as anything but a nicer version of a party that exists to do the bidding of the corporate elite in this country. Any endorsement of a Democrat must be done with this acknowledgement and a hope that one day we will have a party that’ll represent the people first, and laws that allow that party an equal voice.
Finally, I want to say a word about the basic decency I have seen in Mr. Obama. Mrs. Clinton continues to throw the Rev. Wright up in his face as part of her mission to keep stoking the fears of White America. Every time she does this I shout at the TV, “Say it, Obama! Say that when she and her husband were having marital difficulties regarding Monica Lewinsky, who did she and Bill bring to the White House for ‘spiritual counseling?’ THE REVEREND JEREMIAH WRIGHT!”
But no, Obama won’t throw that at her. It wouldn’t be right. It wouldn’t be decent. She’s been through enough hurt. And so he remains silent and takes the mud she throws in his face.
That’s why the crowds who come to see him are so large. That’s why he’ll take us down a more decent path. That’s why I would vote for him if Michigan were allowed to have an election.
But the question I keep hearing is… ‘can he win? Can he win in November?’ In the distance we hear the siren of the death train called the Straight Talk Express. We know it’s possible to hear the words “President McCain” on January 20th. We know there are still many Americans who will never vote for a black man. Hillary knows it, too. She’s counting on it.
Pennsylvania, the state that gave birth to this great country, has a chance to set things right. It has not had a moment to shine like this since 1787 when our Constitution was written there. In that Constitution, they wrote that a black man or woman was only “three fifths” human. On Tuesday, the good people of Pennsylvania have a chance for redemption.
Yours,
Michael Moore

DUBAI (Reuters) – Osama bin Laden urged Palestinians on Thursday to use “iron and fire” to end an Israeli blockade of Gaza, in a recording after the Vatican rejected accusations by the al Qaeda chief of a “new crusade.”
In an audiotape broadcast by the Qatar-based Al Jazeera satellite channel on Thursday, bin Laden urged Muslims to keep up the struggle against U.S. forces in Iraq as a path to “liberating Palestine.” The tape was released around the fifth anniversary of the U.S. invasion of Iraq.
