This is what Ukrainians did in Volyn, Poland in 1943. This is the type of people Obama is supporting now. You do the math.

US Fascism began in 1980 in earnest, and has not abated since.  Wake up folks.  92 countries attacked since World War II, and for what?  Profit, that’s for what.

Here’s what the Ukrainians who were supporting the Stepan Bandera Fascist government are capable of.  Not all Ukrainians supported that government.  But the new 2014  “government” smells a lot alike.  This type of thing was repeated in Odessa May 2, 2014 with support of the USA.

And here is how one of the Kiev  Junta leadership Yatsenuk was “greeted” in Germany.  Yet the USA insists on backing these brutal thugs.  If ethnic cleansing of Russians continues in Eastern Ukraine, Putin may react.  If he reacts, what has amounted to a creeping World War Three may break out in earnest.  Oh NOOOOOOOOOO!

Please send this one out via, or put the long URL on your facebook wall.  This one is quite important.
Americans just don’t quite understand the level of brutality of the people President Obama is backing these days.  Add the Ukraine thugs to being on the WRONG side in Syria, and expanding Bush’s war into Pakistan, increasing Drone air strikes by thousands of percents, and you have a man who was lying to us when he said he was going to bring the troops home.
Should Putin react to the wholesale ethnic cleansing of Russians in Odessa, Crimea, etc. in eastern Ukraine, then Obama has committed to backing the rebelious Junta that stole power in Kiev.
Of course Russian Natural Gas MUST FLOW THROUGH western Ukraine in order to reach Europe, which gets 40% of its natural gas from Russia.  Should any disruption in this flow occur, Russia is poorer (hence in a fighting mood) and Europe is well nigh obliterated by super hi natural gas prices.  The USA which is clearly overstocked with natural gas will also see prices fly sky high.  And, Like in Iraq, JP Morgan and others will jack the price of natural gas on the NY Merchantile exchange for their own profits, while melting down what remains of the USA middle class via escalating fuel and heating costs.  Note the USA doe NOT count oil and other feuls along with FOOD prices in their tally of the annual inflation rate.  Now how absurd is that?  How many Americans get by with no car and no heat?

Anyone who thinks that Kiev burning DURING the Sochi Winter Olympics was a mere coincidence doesn’t follow the CIA very well,  Nor Nato Secret Services.  Plenty of evidence suggests outside players are continuing the bloodshed in Kiev, while genuine bloodthirsty Ukrainians (not all Ukrainians are nuts, let’s separate the sinners from the innocent here) are maurading, and murdering in Odessa, Crimea, and other parts of eastern Ukraine that are Russian enclaves.  It’s Genocide in slow motion just as Slobo Milosovic’s attacks on Muslims were meant to be complete.  But in many ways he was also goaded and forced to react in a war that was ALSO cooked up by western spies.  The evidence for this is overwhelming.  30,000+ died in NATO and USA air strikes in Belgrade, and how many of those were “enemy combatants?”  We also coated bombs with uranium and bombed Serbia’s once-rich agricultural lands so that food from that region is no longer acceptable, and uh, Serbia had once fed all of Yugoslavia, and beyond.

OK the Slavic world has had a lot of things brewing for centuries, this is true, but with the natural gas pipeline in play, and the USA clearly backing the Junta (Remember when Bush and Condy Rize also Backed Pervez Musharraf, AFTER HE LOST A DEMOCRATIC ELECTION to Asif Ali Zardari  the replacement for Benazir Bhutto who was assassinated in a bombing on 27 December 2007.  Even though Musharraf could not beat a last-minute replacement, He seized power and Bush and Rice BACKED HIM.  Wow how undemocratic can you get?   Muneer Malick, of the Supreme Court Legal society in Pakistan used to stand on top of buildings with a Nullhorn shouting down Musharraf, until he was poisoned.  At that he still sent out YOUTUBE videos while deathly ill.  He survived.  Long may you live, friend.

Well let’s See, how about selecting known Drug lord Hamid Karzai as president of Afghanistan?  Parliamentarian Malali Joya stood repeatedly to read charges against Karzai until she was thrown out of Parliament illegally and had at least 5 assassination attempts on her life.  Karzai is such a puppet he recently did this:

NEW DELHI: Even as India has stopped short of blaming any Pakistan-based terrorist group for the attack on its consulate in Heart last Friday, Afghanistan President Hamid Karzai has blamed the Lashkar-e-Taiba for the strike that was foiled by Afghan security forces and Indian paramilitary forces. Karzai, who met Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Delhi on Tuesday, claimed that the Afghanistan government had received information from a Western intelligence agency that the attackers belonged to the LeT.

Remember, Obama pledged to bring the troops home before the 2008 election?  HA, all they did was move over to Pakistan, where, Ostensibly, the last part of the Afghan oil pipeline must run to circumvent Iran and deliver to tankers in the Indian Ocean.  WAKE UP FOLKS!

All in favor of fracking and the Keystone Pipeline please take a bus home and sell your car(s).

Manhattan Mambo

Manhattan Mambo

Rain, mist, Rain.
Synthetic awnings cast water bombs
That splash between nose and lenses.
It’s a hike to Chelsea from Koreaville.
You duck into a pay-by-weight
Kimchi shop to fuel up for the
Twelve block trek.

Art at Whitehall, art on every floor,
Art by appointment only, art as
Video, art as manhole cover, art
as “Hello-my-name-is” tags, art
From Kansas, a Korean lady who glues
The outside frills of name badges in rows
Ten across and 300 high, quite derivative.

Seated, pooped, twelve-dollar park.
But what a relief to have been in the art.
You drive back to Carolina, land of crafts,
See Boston galleries showing gray,
Young wine merchants taking chances on
The stuff they hang in galleries. You have
The time to paint, but don’t today.

Heat, sun, heat.
Twenty five years of painting. One huge
Pile waiting to be stored, maybe framed,
Maybe dipsy-dumpstered, maybe sold off
The wall of Port City Java. To be amazed
By art, to laugh in the face of art. To paint:
The last refuge, last thread, last breath.

The Falls

The Falls

Broken fender, twig in line
And light blue sky with trees.
Green on blue and mountain fine
With warmth upon my knees.

Summer sun at winter time,
Snow still on the ground.
The place is set for water-mime
So I listen for the sound.

The sound is one of Bash Bish Falls
And now I tend to stare.
Everflowing echo calls
Of water in the air.

It makes me think of trees gone by
And people never seen.
It shouldn’t, but it makes me cry
To think of where I’ve been.

Now I sit with tears on face,
Knowing all the glory.
Now I sit without a trace
Of how to tell the story.

The Springs

The Springs

Let’s go down to the springs,
We can watch the dogwoods grow.
Let’s go down and watch things,
Get up right now, let’s go!

The water will be running,
We certainly won’t miss that.
Today you do look stunning,
Let’s go down and chat.

There’s something I want to tell you
There’s something I want to say:
Now we’re a nation of two
Starting this very day.

So, let’s go down to the springs
We can watch the dogwood grow.
We’ll hear the bird that sings:
There’s one thing that I know.

When we go down to the springs
We’ll see if two can be one.
We’ll avoid the things that sting
And catch a little sun.

The thing that I have found
Is a love for only you.
My heart will always pound
When I enter our nation of two.

Multi-national corporate power

Welcome to a rant about the many loopholes that lead to tax advantages for corporations that earn money in the USA, claim the money was earned elsewhere and then never repatriate the money. This means they never have to pay taxes on their profits. Meanwhile rich folks have had their taxes cut three times and in big chunks while we run up budget deficits and a national debt that is approaching $20,000,000,000,000. !

Massive military budgets and new wars add to this problem while making the same 16 defense contractors rich over and over again.
Meanwhile cuts to food stamps, meals on wheels, education and social ssecurity are the type if austerity measures literally starving our poor.

Some states have found themselves in budget crises of their own. It is at this level that education is being privatized via charter schools that are themselves often dysfunctional and almost ALWAYS with right wing conservative bullshit religious mumbo jumbo classes that fly in the face of what Jesus said, like “Do Unto Others, ”  but works well to robotize our kids toward careers as factory workers or managers. This is assured by standardized testing rigged toward rich children who attend private schools thus creating a massive private school industry such as we see in South Korea.

The entire system, our entire lives, are at the mercy of those who clawed their way to the top (who knows how). Some say the feudal lords were better to their serfs than the pittance the wage slaves are paid today. Others say this will mean the end of capitalism, but how? The owners of the means of production also control the governments and the armies. Juntas do not often work and when they do, lawlessness often results.

The solution is small and medium size farms to grow our own food in order to stop feeding this huge, ugly machine. But most land is full of gmos now AND owned by large Shri- business.

If you know a path on which we can take Billy Bragg’s “Great Leap Forward” please comment with it.  Thanks, Doug

Six PM, 25 December, 2001

It is her birthday, still she works
The wok, offering noodles, broccoli,
Special home-baked Christmas cookies
Brought to the table in a plaid tin.

Ruskin, home of the traveling tomato,
Plays host to a broad cross-section
Of Christmas diners. No Tet here. An
Eight-pack multi-generation family walks in.

Spanish and Chinese attempt to communicate
In English. Three couples in a row
Pick up take out. Over 60, loneliness
Screams from behind steaming plastic lenses.

Intermingled fortunes make her wonder
What the next customer will want.
You can’t believe everything you eat,
But we know crunchy veggies cleanse.

The dog and the dragon do not always get along.
She says thank you so much as she accepts
A three-song CD gift from a strange man,
Now done eating, looking to make a call.

Hard working Spanish-speaking revelers
Eat Chinese for Christmas dinner. She
Points to a pay phone, so the dog and dragon
Talk, then drive away from the vacant mall.
