If you are a cattle rancher and your ranch is not big enough to support your livestock you pay grazing fees… on public AND private land.

When someone makes an agreement for a specific number of heads and ends up with seven times the number without paying agreed grazing fees for more than twenty years, that makes you a deadbeat. It makes you a thief. And on this disputed grounds… Bundy’s livestock is trampling the endangered desert tortoise.

Hijacking keywords (freedom, liberty, tyranny, god, among others) to incite more freeloaders and their weapons to northern Nevada for the final confrontation with the feds. A bunch of fools helping a thief. A well armed militia. And these militias are headed to NV to shoot police. Yes… some of them are already there.

Bundy has his own land. If he doesn’t want to pay grazing fees, let him buy feed like other ranchers instead of stealing it from me. Can’t support your cattle by purchasing feed? SELL THE HERD like other ranchers do in a drought or other times of trouble. Herds are increased and decreased in size for a plethora of reasons.

This is not some new over-reaching government. This is not Obama‘s private army going after Bundy. It’s just rule of law.

Ranchers have willingly paid below market grazing fees for more than 100 years, Yet this douchebag is using people to start a militia with a bunch of haters. We all know how that will end.

Claiming federal action via Bureau of Land Management or law is unconstitutional is a perversion of the constitution and/or the first amendment. This is no great CONstitutional battle. It’s a bunch of uneducated and misinformed sheep who have no understanding of business or federal land or mining rights, or oil rights or any rights.

You don’t want to pay your taxes, you don’t want children in school. You want the hungry to die, you only want white people to vote, you don’t want to pay your own medical bills or buy insurance… frankly… you are not an american in spirit. You are a freeloader… all of you and all of them. Deadbeats!

An open letter to the people who hate Obama more than they love America

Hello world…

I take great pride in the accomplishment of keeping politics away from my facebook. Sometimes I just need to vent and hope and hope and hope, some people… some of my friends, will sit down and learn for themselves all of contemporary US history and not what you are told (repeatedly) by revisionists, entertainers on cable networks and terrestrial radio… all talking heads for commercial interests.

Many of you take a blog, just like mine… right here… this thing you are reading and reference it as gospel and newsworthy. Taking rhetorical quotes as factual. Taking one element of truth and creating a fantasy manuscript. This blog, my blog… is not news. It is opinion. My opinions is biased. Biased towards peace, love, happiness, coexistence, mindfulness, compassion among others. As I experience personal growth, my list of biases gets longer.

What I am writing here is biased and I’ll be the first to admit it. I dislike wing-nuts, but I do not hate them. I dislike ultra liberals, but I do not hate them. I dislike ultra conservatives, but I do not hate them. I dislike those in the so-called middle and their fabricated libertarianism, which is an abbreviation for freeloader, but still, I do not hate them, nor do I want to see them die on the side of the road, as they would watch you because of their self preservation/interest. I dislike anyone who hates. I dislike hate. I dislike the fact that innate hatred overpowers rational thought, but I don’t hate those who don’t think for themselves. I love all of you. I love having conversation with all of you, primarily so I can identify some of your character flaws that make you such a sucker… You are nothing but a heard of sheep.

I just happen to love people who do not follow strict party platforms. I love people who take each issue and vote based on fact or with their heart. I love people who vote for the greater good and not for the good of themselves. I love people who take action and do not only yell on the soap box. I love people who leave their gospel at home and vote as our founding fathers would want you to… with the absence of religious influence.

You follow and quote a fiction writer who creates an unrealistic hate filled world where it’s every man for himself. Ayn Rand… a jew… someone who many would just hate (not my word) if they knew just this simple fact of her religion. If they really knew the philosophy they follow is one that they actually know nothing about. I am John Galt is not I am Ayn Rand… in as much as The Book of Mormon (as dictated by aliens from outer space) is the same as The King James Bible (as written from rumor and innuendo by storytellers, generations after any possible eyewitness has been long deceased and before any other written word was penned). Do not argue with me about any of these books a) unless you have read them b) have them on a bookshelf or electronic device for reference. Knowledge is power and unfortunately, most people have no power. Not over their free will, their free thoughts or their freedumb.

An Open Letter to the People Who Hate Obama More Than They Love America.

 

Official photographic portrait of US President...

“I meet you all the time. You hate Obama. You hate gay people. You hate black people, immigrants, Muslims, labor unions, women who want the right to make choices concerning their bodies, you hate em all. You hate being called racist. You hate being called a bigot. Maybe if you talked about creating jobs more than you talk about why you hate gay people we wouldn’t call you bigots. Maybe if you talked about black people without automatically assuming they are on food stamps while demanding their birth certificates we wouldn’t call you racist. You hate socialism and social justice. You hate regulations and taxes and spending and the Government. You hate.

 

You like war. You like torture. You like Jesus. I don’t know how in the hell any of that is compatible, but no one ever accused you haters of being over-committed to ideological consistency. You like people who look like you or at least hate most of the things that you hate. You hate everything else.

 

Now, I know you profess to love our country and the founding fathers (unless you are reminded that they believed in the separation of church and state), but I need to remind you that America is NOT what Fox News says it is. America is a melting pot, it always has been. We are a multi-cultural amalgamation of all kinds of people, and yet you still demonize everyone who is not a rich, white, heterosexual christian male or his submissive and obedient wife.

 

You hate liberals, moderates, hell, anyone who disagrees with Conservative dogma as espoused by Fox News and Rush Limbaugh. You hate em.

 

U.S. Presidential flag, 1960-present (not usua...

U.S. Presidential flag, 1960-present (not usually called a “standard” in official U.S. government terminology). It is defined in Executive Order 10860. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

 

Well, here are the facts, Jack. If you hate the Government then you are unqualified to manage it. If you hate gay people more than you love America than you should take your own advice and get the hell out. There are several countries that are openly hostile to gay people, but they are full of brown people and you don’t like them much either from what I understand. It looks like you are screwed, but that’s not what I am here to tell you.

 

Now that you have thrown everything and the kitchen sink at President Obama and it still hasn’t worked you are panicking. Obama’s approval ratings are still near 50% despite your best efforts to undermine the economy and America’s recovery at every step you can. You tried to hold the American economy hostage to force America into default on its’ debts, debts that YOU rang up under Bush, so you could blame it on Obama and it failed. You’ve used the filibuster more than any other Congress ever, going so far as to vote against providing health care access to 9/11 first responders. You remember 9/11, don’t you, it’s that thing you used to lie us into a war in Iraq, and then when Obama killed Bin Laden and ended the war in Iraq you told people that he hates America and wants the troops to fail. You monsters. You hate Obama with a passion, despite the fact that he is a tax cutting, deficit reducing war President who undermines civil rights and delivers corporate friendly watered down reforms that benefit special interests just like a Republican. You call him a Kenyan. You call him a socialist. You dance with your hatred singing it proudly in the rain like it was a 1950’s musical.

Bush, Bill Clinton, and Jimmy Carter for a Meeting and Lunch at The White House. Photo taken in the Oval Office at The White House. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

 

Frankly, you disgust me. Your hatred nauseates me. Your bigotry offends me. Your racism revolts me.

 

Dear haters, I am openly questioning your patriotism.

 

I think you hate gays, Obama, black people, poor people, all of us, women, atheists and agnostics, Latinos, Muslims, Liberals, all of us, I think you hate every one who isn’t exactly like you, and I think you hate us more than you love your country.

 

I think you hate gay soldiers more than you want America to win its wars.

 

I don’t even think you want America to win wars, you just want America to have wars, never ending wars and the war profiteering it generates. You love that kind of spending, you love spending on faith based initiatives and abstinence based sex education (George Carlin would have loved that one), you love spending on subsidies for profitable oil corporations, you spend like drunken sailors when you are in the White House, but if it is a Democrat then suddenly you cheer when America doesn’t get the Olympics because it might make the black President look bad. But oooh you love your country, you say, and you want it back. Well listen here skippy, it isn’t your country, you don’t own it, it is our country, and America is NOT the religiously extremist Foxbots who hate science, elitist professors and having a vibrant and meaningful sex life with someone we love if Rick Santorum doesn’t approve of it. Rick Santorum isn’t running for America’s fucking high school dance chaperone, he should probably just shut the hell up about sex, but he can’t because he has nothing else to run on.

 

Republicans can NOT win on the issues. They’ve got NOTHING. All they have is a divide and conquer class war that pits ignorant racist and bigoted people against the rest of us in a meaningless battle of wedge issues and the already proven to fail George W. Bush agenda again of tax cuts for the rich, deregulation, privatization and war profiteering and nothing else, so all they can do is blame black people, gays the government, anybody and everyone else for their own failings. The party of personal responsibility, my ass.

 

But they love multi-national corporations, just ask a gay hating and racist religious extremist if they think Corporations are people and they will gladly agree, but if you ask them if gay people are people they aren’t so sure.

 

Dear haters, you are the cruel, heartless misinformed assholes who would sell America out to Haliburton in a heartbeat, you would rather pay ZERO taxes than you would see a newly born baby get access to quality health care, you cheer when we discuss denying health care to young people with preventable diseases, and you boo when we discuss the First Ladies plan to cut back on childhood obesity. You are a cross to carry and a flag to wrap yourself in away from being the people who Sinclair Lewis warned us about, but I guarantee that if Fox News told you to dress that way you would, because you are the same blind, ignorant and closed minded dunces who drove this country into a civil war years ago because you are bound to the notion that some men are more equal than others. In short, the reason I proudly wear my union army hat is because of seditious sell outs like you who constantly fuck over working class Americans so a foreign entrepreneur like Rupert Murdoch can get a bigger tax break. If corporations are people, they are neither American patriots nor capable of love. Just like you.

 

So stop wearing your hate with pride. Stop celebrating your anti-science, anti-math ignorance. Stop using code words to mask your bigotry like “family values”, especially when you hate my family and when you stand on the same stage as a guy who has had three marriages or if you share a seat in the Senate with a guy who cheated on his wife with hookers while wearing diapers. You should be ashamed. I know that you are just doing this to motivate your misinformed hate cult base because if they actually knew that your ideas will make them poorer than they are now, they would never vote for you. You are doing your best to impoverish your countrymen so rich people can get bigger tax breaks and you can keep on delivering corporate welfare to the special interests who have bribed you, and I am disgusted by the way you gleefully parade your hatred with aplomb. I don’t think you do love America. At least, not as much as you hate everyone in America who isn’t exactly like you.

 

You should think about that, and maybe get some help.

 

And for the record, I do not hate you. I am embarrassed by you and nauseated by your cruel and thoughtless behavior and your all consuming greed, but I do not hate you. I forgive you and I hope you can change someday, but I don’t hate you. You have enough hate in you for the rest of us as it is”.

No serious sociologist any longer believes that the voice of the people expresses any divine or specially wise and lofty idea. The voice of the people expresses the mind of the people, and that mind is made up for it by the group leaders in whom it believes and by those persons who understand the manipulation of public opinion. It is composed of inherited prejudices and symbols and clichés and verbal formulas supplied to them by the leaders.

Who are WE to judge someone for ONE invasion??? This post is not for an argument of political motivations or justifications on either side… This is purely finance. Citibank among others have significant exposure in Ukraine… well… fuck those banksters.

There’s no way to bash any specific politician or party or platform with the exception of one, but I like the way you can look at this and avoid party or platform labels… this is just “US” (you and me) in general. because all those labels and platforms are a fraud.

    If you are absolute and refuse to read, learn, understand, empathize, or even speak to who or what you demonize, how will you ever learn more about you… yourself, and cultivate deeper perception, awareness, comprehension into what you believe yourself? The things that have the most value when it comes to learning and understanding are exactly the things worth exploring and are worth reading, have the most value and, more accurately, those that challenge our convictions. Before you use a simple label for anything you question or take issue with, no matter what, you must be knowledgable enough to think for yourself and come to your own conclusion. Trust no one’s voice but your own, but before you judge others, make sure you have clean hands and use a purely factual challenge without any labels. It doesn’t matter if it is political, social, cultural or religious… the same mandate applies. [Marc Gilbert-Widmann January 29, 2014]

Yeah, about the test…

The test will measure whether you are an informed, engaged, and productive citizen of the world, and it will take place in schools and bars and hospitals and dorm rooms and in places of worship. You will be tested on first dates, in job interviews, while watching football, and while scrolling through your Twitter feed. The test will judge your ability to think about things other than celebrity marriages, whether you’ll be easily persuaded by empty political rhetoric, and whether you’ll be able to place your life and your community in a broader context. The test will last your entire life, and it will be comprised of the millions of decisions that, when taken together, will make your life yours. And everything, everything, will be on it.

…I know, right?”

“In a world as electronically connected as ours, other than shooting Bieber into the silent void of space (which the Geneva Convention lists as a war crime against space), there is nothing we can do to protect our children from the toxic effect this stunted Vanilla Ice has and will continue to have on our culture.

But that doesn’t mean we have to let him stay in our home.

Every day we deport those who come here with no agenda other than to work hard, keep their head down, pay taxes, raise a family, and pursue the American Dream in a noble and honorable way. But we’re housing this little pantywaist and his posse?

No justice, no peace.”

NO… says Marc. I am not a belieber in the bieber. Justin Bieber is a little spoiled douche that needs some tough lovin’ outside of protective custody in his Miami-Dade jail cell.

>”Don’t forget impairment starts with the first drink and driving impaired is a crime.”—National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) radio script, July 2003. (The message is clear: one drink and you are a criminal).  CLICK HERE for 7 government Public Service Announcements celebrating American Freedom Week

>”Promoting ‘responsible drinking and driving’ is like promoting ‘responsible drive-by shootings’.”—MADD’s Driven Magazine, Fall, 1997. (This was in their nationally distributed magazine.)

>”The only safe amount of alcohol when you are mixing driving and drinking is zero – double zeros, no alcohol,” says MADD’s Tina Pascoe. (They swear they are not for Prohibition.)

“Forget limits on BAC. It’s just not acceptable to drink and drive, period” – Madd President Wendy Hamilton. (And since we can’t eliminate driving, let’s eliminate drinking.)

>”…I had ceased my affiliation with M.A.D.D. when they would no longer allow me to say the name God or Jesus Christ when I spoke to people about the story of my daughter.”—Former MADD coordinator, Vicki Soles. (Must be the disturbing fact that Jesus drank wine.)

>“Last year, 24,000 nationwide lost their lives because of drunk drivers.”— Theresa McNeil, MADD spokeswoman on WXON-TV. (Misspoken again? The MADD message loud and clear: Already inflated Alcohol-related death numbers equal drunk driving deaths.) 

>Chief Justice William Rehnquist in 1990, “No one can seriously dispute the magnitude of the problem…drunken drivers cause an annual death toll of over 25,000.” –from the Supreme Court decision allowing sobriety checkpoints. (Alcohol-related deaths equal drunk driving deaths. Now where did he get that idea?)

> ”Once you’ve consumed your first drink, you’ve lost that ability to make a sound judgment.” —MADD Chapter President, Penny Wagner. (That explains a lot about our lawmakers.)

>”Drunk driving is one of the most frequently committed violent crimes in the United States, killing 16,653 people last year, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.”—Nationwide Insurance Poll press release, Dec, 2001. (They have also learned the art of misspeaking. Nationwide is a financial contributor to MADD and reaps 2-300% higher premiums from DUI arrestees.)

>“Education is important, but we’re to the point where almost everyone knows they shouldn’t drink and drive. The people who are still doing it are choosing to do it. The most effective way to deal with them is to arrest them.”  David Kelly, MADD, Virginia chapter. (All 80% of the population—and hurry up about it!)

>July, 03 NHTSA radio script: “Impairment starts with the first drink and driving impaired is a crime,”  “If you drive impaired you’ll get caught.” (MADD policy, government policy. Same people. The distinction blurs.)

>“Lowering the legal [arrest] standard will be a deterrent for light drinkers as well as heavy drinkers. There is no safe blood alcohol level, and for that reason, responsible drinking and driving means no drinking and driving.”—Catherine Prescott, former President, MADD. (They swear they are not for Prohibition, really.)

“Drunk driving is the most frequently committed crime in the nation today. DWI arrests in 1987 totaled an estimated 1,728,000, more than three times the total for all otherviolent crimes (murder, forcible rape, robbery and aggravated assault).”—MADD pamphlet. (Drunk driving=violent crime=rape, murder. Get the message.) 

>Drunk driving continues to be the most frequently committed violent crime. —MADD’s Wendy Hamilton, Nov 21, 2002. (To be violent, shouldn’t a crime always have a victim?)

>From the NHTSA: “Although every year 1.5 million impaired drivers are arrested, only one arrest is made for every 772 occurrences of driving under the influence of alcohol.” (That’s 1.158 Billion occurrences of violent, mostly victimless crimes every year! And 1,158,000,000 potential arrests each year. We need one BIG jail. Note also that drunk driving is now impaired driving.) 

“…we do not want to overlook the casual drinker. If you choose to drink, you should never drive. We will not tolerate drinking and driving-period.”—MADD President, Karolyn Nunnallee(They swear they are not for Prohibition, honest.)

>“Mr. Howarth, how many fatal accidents do cell phone users cause every year versus drunk drivers?”
“I have absolutely no idea, nor do I care.” 
— Brian Williams and MADD lobbyist Tom Howarth, MSNBC, March 4, 1998. (Cell phone use has been equated to a BAC of .10 (drunk). MADD supports cell phone use while driving, so you can report drunk drivers.)

“In El Salvador, a first offense results in execution by firing squad.”   In fact, an attorney from the Salvadoran Embassy phoned Chaloupka demanding that MADD stop lying about El Salvador’s driving laws.—Detroit News, 4-27-91. (Lucky we live here where it’s only jail, fine & license suspension.)

>”Good morning, I’m James Fell. I am a national board member for Mothers Against Drunk Driving and the Director of Traffic Safety and Enforcement Programs at the Pacific Institute for Research and Evaluation [PIRE]. Before joining PIRE, I spent 30 years at the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.” (MADD policy, government policy. Same people, same policy.)

MADD board member and PIRE researcher Robert Voas admitted, “Drivers in the .08 to .09 range often do not exhibit the blatant erratic driving of higher BAC offenders, so that the evidence for probable cause may not be present for stopping a vehicle.” (Note to MADD, “He forgot to say drunk drivers.” Perhaps we should call them closet drunks since they don’t exhibit any clues to their real identity. PIRE is responsible for many of the alcohol studies that MADD & the NHTSA use.)

>”In Fairfax County, Virginia the cops are arresting drunks — get this — in bars. That’s right. They are going into bars and dragging people outside to determine if they are drunk. And if they are, wham-bam, it’s into the slammer, Sam!” —Dec, 02. FOX news. (The Untouchables, Virginia style.)
MADD’s reaction to the news: “In our view, law enforcement is doing its job,” said Chuck Hurley, an official with the National Transportation Council and former national board member of Mothers Against Drunk Driving.  (MADD policy, government policy. Same people, same policy.) 

>“If .08% is good, .05% is better. That’s where we’re headed, it doesn’t mean that we should get there all at once. But ultimately it should be .02%.”—Steve Simon, Chairman, Minnesota State DUI Task Force (Why stop there?  “00” is such an easy number to remember.)

>“We may wind up in this country going to zero tolerance, period.”—U.S. Senator and MADD supporter Barbara Boxer (D-CA). (California always wants to be first.)

>”The National Crackdown is a partnership of criminal justice and traffic safety partners in all 50 States joining forces to catch impaired drivers and to lock them up.”—NHTSA, July, 2003 (Impaired drivers are the new violent criminals and police are now called traffic safety partners. The proposal is to stop 93 million drivers at sobriety checkpoints as soon as taxpayer funds are received. Look for a catchy label without the work checkpoint in it, maybe “Safe & Secure Streets Campaign”.)

>”Because of the heightened visibility checkpoints give to DWI law enforcement, they are especially valuable and effective as a general deterrent… If the public is aware the police will be conducting checkpoints… they drink less,” From a MADD speech.(Fear of the government and the police is a desirable thing, evidently.)

>“We cannot have the kind of country we want if people are afraid of those folks who are trying to protect them.” -President William Clinton.  (Unlike George Bush, Clinton was never arrested for drunk driving and his chauffeur doesn’t drink.)

>U.S. Transportation Secretary Norm Mineta said “If you drink and drive, you lose. Today we’re putting drunk drivers on notice: If we catch you drinking and driving, we will arrest you and prosecute you.” (Now drunk driving is a federal offense!)

>Last year 17,274 Americans lost their lives on our nation’s highways in alcohol-related fatal traffic crashes. This number constituted the first increase in drunk driving fatalities in a decade. Katherine P. Prescott, President, (MADD) Senate speech, May 7, 1997. (Here in the same paragraph is alcohol related equated to drunk driving. This in a speech to Congress.)

>”This compendium incorporates MADD ‘s position on each issue, sample laws, sample testimony or speeches, and other useful resource information“— NHTSA Zero Tolerance Underage Drinking website(To save money they could combine the NHTSA and MADD logos.)

>Paul Mulshine, Star-Ledger Staff, July 20, 2003—“[Quote by]…MADD president Wendy Hamilton in a Reuters article just prior to the July 4, (2003) weekend: “Last year, 18,000 people were killed in drunk driving crashes.” This not true, however. The MADD people admitted that when I phoned their Washington office.
“She may have been misquoted or she may have misspoken,” said spokesperson Stephanie Manning when I asked her about Hamilton’s statement. “The official line is to say ‘alcohol-related deaths.'”
I asked Hamilton if she knew exactly how many people were actually killed by drivers who were legally drunk in 2002. She said she didn’t, but she invited me to call the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration.
The NHTSA spokesman said he didn’t know either. But he was kind enough to point out that the “alcohol-related” category employed by Mothers Against Drunk Driving includes a great number of accidents in which the participants were either not drunk or not driving. If a car hits you as you walk across the street after having a glass of wine with dinner, for example, then the .01 blood-alcohol content in your corpse will be sufficient for NHTSA to classify your untimely demise as alcohol-related – even though the driver was totally sober…”  (Just an innocent misspoken statement, ala another president, named Nixon.)  CLICK HERE for the complete news article

Marc’s Thought of the Day 11 January 2014 – Target

SuperTarget logo, 2006–present.

SuperTarget logo, 2006–present. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

It was before Thanksgiving and it might have been before Halloween. I remember specifically the first Christmas commercial I saw this year was from Target. And I said to myself, “these bastards are opening on Thanksgiving” AND they push back the calendar used for Christmas advertising a bit farther.

I consciously said to myself, “I will no longer shop at Target”… At least last year… for ruining Thanksgiving for so many thousands of employees along with their families and for so many unsuspecting mis-guided shoppers and their families who for some imaginary fear of loss leave their family to camp out as if they were in the forest waiting for the door to open for a hand full of door-busters and everything else of mediocre value and not the lowest price of the year or ever. To be honest, the target is more appropriate at the gun range.

At this point, I think I spoke too loudly or my sphere of influence is a tad larger than I thought it was. I spoke ill of the company along with those who would cross the threshold into a demonic big box store that has always had a target on it’s back.

This attack and theft of credit card and/or other personally identifiable information as we are now being told which includes email address and more. This means that instead of just names and card numbers… we have pin #’s and cvv’s and other information which created complete identity theft. The impact is completely unknown at this point and now in the hands of banks, merchant processors and their payment gateways along with the card labels. The truth is we may never know the true impact of opening stores on Thanksgiving or if it has anything to do with the cyber-attack and theft of customer data.

This societal infraction by the board of director’s at Target has taken us one step closer to a permanent all year multi-holiday sale cycle including that fear of loss (again). Combine this with the permanent election cycle that never ends and news that is written and or fabricated to be fictional, entertaining and addictive while only “based” on fact. Every news outlet is responsible at some low level for this as they try to attract eye balls.

Is this payback? Do we have to wait until next Labor Day to see who is the first store to start a christmas ad campaign to see if this this type of theft is a social trend or attack or something bigger???

I should really get to the range and see if I can still hit the target with left hand (only), right hand (only), two handed left and two handed right… this is one big target. And you have to qualify by hitting the target by any means necessary.
