Soon I Shall Tell You





Speaking of Politicians…

We know what American politicians love best – WAR. These maniacs see everything as a YOU AGAINST ME proposition. War on Poverty… War on Drugs… War on a Virus… Mostly war against some nation with a GDP far less than the monetary value of the bombs dropped on them, blowing them up so we can have a sense of “victory”. Politicians know that using WAR is a war to quash dissent. People question the loyalty, patriotism, even the SANITY of anyone who asks WHY ARE WE DOING THIS?
What a deadly way to live! Here is a book I believe EVERYONE should read! It tells, bluntly, who we as a nation are AND WHY WE HAVE GONE TO WAR almost non-stop since we began as a nation!

FROM MOJO BROS. PUBLISHING: Two-Time Medal of Honor recipient Maj. Gen. Smedley D. Butler’s famous essay on the horrors and futility of war – now in a facsimile edition. Peeling away the patriotic veneer used to win support for war, Butler tells why we go to war, who is behind it and who profits.
This book contains a FACSIMILE of the 1935 original. And more!
In the 1930s, a cabal of Wall Street businessmen, alarmed by what President Franklin D. Roosevelt was doing to spur the economy, planned to remove FDR. The plan – known as The Business Plot – called for rallying disaffected WW1 Veterans under a military leader who could unite them. That man, these plotters thought, was the retired Maj. Gen. Butler. They tried to win Butler to their cause with a promise of making him the a national dictator. They could not have been more mistaken! This book has a section showing Butler’s role in revealing this treasonous plot.
In an ALL-NEW forward, we tell the story of those times and – for the first time ever! – present recently declassified documents from Smedley Butler’s FBI file!


Decoding The Cult Of Thunberg

September 23, 2019

Ok. We need to differentiate between
CRITICISM and ATTACK.

So many people see a child and right away their BULLSHIT DETECTOR goes on the fritz. Well, pay attention, because today we’re getting heaps of manipulative bullshit from the child Greta Thunberg. The people who handle her have clearly seen to it that she is EXTREMELY WELL TRAINED in the art of deflecting criticism. With that in mind, I shall dissect her cheap rhetorical ploys.
Overall, Thunberg has been well-coached in the use of TWO FALLACIES OF LOGIC:

1) She opens her speeches with the fallacy of logic called POISONING THE WELL – by denouncing in advance anyone who takes a critical look at her, as A HATER.

2) Then, after characterizing all who dare question her as mean old adults, Thunberg employs the fallacy of logic called AD MISERICORDIAM. She does this by first saying, with voice quivering, “I’m JUST a child!” – an odd statement for a normal 16-year old. After that, Thunberg recites a list all her supposed infirmities: Asperger’s Syndrome… ADHD… OCD… Eating Disorders… High-Functioning Autism… and this winner: SELECTIVE MUTISM.
With Selective  Mutism, Thunberg suddenly loses the ability to speak to anyone outside her family. How convenient that she gets stricken with this “condition” whenever she is asked serious questions that challenge her narrative.

It’s all typical DEMAGOGUE bullshit, and if the gullible people who fall for it ever heard an adult speaking like this – someone like, say, oh, Donald Trump – they would denounce the speaker in a New York minute. Because they would listen critically.

People have fallen for this routine over and over.

Bana Alamed, the manufactured child savior of Syria, comes to mind.

As does the doe-eyed child who called herself Nayirah.

kuwaiti-nurse-nayirah-gives-a-fabricated-testimony-to-the-congressional-human-rights-caucus-us-congress-washington-dc-10-october-1990

Claiming to be a nurse from Kuwait, Nayirah went before the Congressional Human Rights Caucus on October 10, 1990, during the run-up to the Iraq Invasion. There, this child delivered completely fabricated testimony about Iraqi soldiers wrenching new-born babies from incubators (children again!) to die in agony on a cold hospital floor. Millions of Americans uncritically swallowed up that patent nonsense, and as a result thousands of people died and uncounted more were maimed and/or left destitute in a pointless war. This child’s parents (she is the daughter of Saud Al-Sabah, then the Kuwaiti ambassador to the United States) in conjunction with script writers from the American PR firm Hill & Knowlton, turned this girl into a war criminal at the age of 15. Those who fell for it are equally complicit. And to this day, nearly 30 years later people keep falling for this tactic.

More recently, starting in 2014, we saw the horrific case of Devonte Hart and the rest of the children in his “extended family”.

Devonte Hart hug

At the age of 12, Hart’s popularity peaked when he was photographed doling out hugs in the streets of Portland, OR, at a protest over the lack of an indictment in the notorious Ferguson, MO shooting case. At the time, I told people who fell for this obvious baloney that it was all a set up. Looking at many photos, more than that one famous one, showed it was clearly a manipulated event. For pointing this out, I was denounced as, you guessed it, a Hater and a Racist.

180328212418-hart-family-exlarge-169

Needless to say, I heard no apologies from those credulous people later, in 2018, when the whole sordid story came out. It turned out that a pair of heartless adults who acted as parents had used Devonte and a bevy of adopted kids to carve out a career for themselves by expertly shuttling the children from one public tragedy to another, all in the name of “Social Justice.” At each location, Jennifer and Sarah Hart would fabricate media glurge in the form of sappy, but reassuring, “interracial” Kumbaya photo-ops complete with tears and hugs. This scam came to an abrupt end when the manipulative women who had amassed this politically correct minority “family”… brutally killed all the children in a gruesome murder/suicide. Reporters investigating the family – only after the murders – uncovered more than a decade of abuses committed by Jennifer and Sarah Hart.

Hart Mugshot

Sarah Hart’s mug shot December 27, 2010, arrested for misdemeanor domestic assault and malicious punishment of a child.

The children, it emerged, were routinely beaten and starved when not on display to serve the whims of the adults. Why didn’t reporters investigate the family before this hideous ending? After all, records existed documenting the assaults on the children by the two women. The whole story was there for anyone to see. IF they bothered to look. So why did the story not come out in the press until it was too late? Because of… The Children. Anyone who dared to apply critical thinking to the obviously fishy situation prior to the mass murder was immediately denounced as a racist and a child-hater. See the pattern? It’s about squelching thought and discussion.

The immediate public acceptance of anything, no matter how idiotic, that issues forth from the mouth of a pint-sized Charlie McCarthy IS PRECISELY WHY the people controlling Thunberg have gone out of their way to use a child for their purposes. Children, properly trained, act as shields for their controllers as surely as the National Rifle Association provides cover for politicians. Children inhibit open and frank conversation, and conversation of any sort is the last thing a demagogue wants.

Judging from the jaw-dropping admiration children inspire, they are granted immunity from criticism – after all, they’re so cute. And honest. And far too many adults swallow it without giving what these children say a moment of critical thought.

That’s why this game pops up again and again and again. After “The Angry Greta Thunberg Show” has run its course, and it will as surely as you can say “David Hogg” or “Emma Gonzalez,” we shall undoubtedly be treated to another seemingly precocious pubescent pipsqueak filling the void with a Life-Or-Death message. In terms of marketing, having a malleable child deliver the pitch is the next best thing to finding a puppy that speaks. Woof Woof, y’all…

Paper Moon


With Thunberg, once again, FEAR gets trotted out – and once again through a child – so that you and I will get manipulated into UNCRITICALLY ACCEPTING a line of BULLSHIT that is used to sell us things we do not need. In this case, any product labeled GREEN. It’s the same way people not that long ago fell for OATBRAN in everything – and before that CHLOROPHYLL. Buy GREEN or… we will all die!!!
This kind of marketing works, especially when marketeers use children to pitch the horrors facing us. That technique, especially invoking THE CHILDREN, is an old –  dare I say VENERABLE? – technique. Why? Because… it works. Here is a perfect example of the way a swindling demagogue manipulates people through fear. Note the many appeals to the heart, from patriotism, history, morality, fear and… THE CHILDREN.

The more you know about THE MERCHANTS OF FEAR and their methods, the less likely you are to fall for their line of bullshit. Here is a book, written 100 years ago, that explains this. I have written the introductory material for a new version.

THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT BOOKS EVER PUBLISHED! And now, thanks to MOJO BROS. CLASSIC EDITIONS, it is back again. And considering the state of the world today, it is here just in time.

EXTRACT FROM AN AMAZON REVIEW:

Please, everybody! Grab up a copy of UNMASKING FEAR! and read it!
Why? This book explains in crystal clarity HOW and WHY unconscionable individuals and organizations saturate others with FEAR every single day, which tactic is not new, it’s been going on as long as people have been thieves and hungry to steal the freedom and goods of others. This book was penned in 1919, and while the clothing styles have changed, the innards remain the same!
We are barraged with FEAR TACTICS daily by those who eagerly take money out of our pockets; usurp the freedom from our lives and keep us as slaves by clouding our thoughts with FEAR. In 1919, Lloyd Kenyon Jones framed his arguments against the rules of early twentieth century organized religions, and how they frightened many away from independent thinking by threats of devils and hellfire, but hypocritically altered their policies when parishioners backed away. Was God wrong when the Church said that anesthesia was the ‘work of the devil,’ and if so, why did God change his mind? I would ask in 2018, are all of the Catholic people who went to hell for eating meat on Friday stuck down there forever, even though the meat thing is no longer considered a sin, or did somebody make a mistake? Or, perhaps . . . eat a steak..?

GREEN is the Color of MONEY

February 26, 2019

I write this for all the people frightened of… CLIMATE CHANGE.

When Global Warming scares you, I mean REALLY scares you… congratulations! You have been well-primed and now… you are ready for the plucking.

People in FEAR have turned themselves into an easy mark for those people selling us a stockpile of useless products and reams of bad legislation – all because they will promote these things as “GREEN” and “good for the environment.

Leading this charge to manipulate us, we find one Michael Rubens Bloomberg – an elderly single man who portrays himself as an “environmentalist” while maintaining SIX homes on TWO continents and listing his hobby as… HELICOPTER FLYING. He also zips around the globe in a private jet just to get away for the weekend. Does this sound to you like a person who has any concerns whatsoever about his carbon footprint? Does he sound like a person who really gives a shit about the environment? Should this man be lecturing us? Hell, Bloomberg cannot even pronounce the word “environment,” saying instead: “en-vie-er-min.” Yet Bloomberg will spend hundreds of millions of dollars to tell YOU how to live and who YOU must vote for in order to “save the planet.”

“Environmentalist” Bloomberg Dumping Pollution Into The Air and Wasting Fuel To Enjoy His HOBBY

Don’t fall for this bullshit.

Don’t act like a sap; a tool of these rich people.

Allow me to drop some reality on you:

Anything we do to fight off climate change will only make things worse.

We caused climate change. We cannot “fight” it. Everything wrong with the planet today began as somebody’s brilliant idea to improve the world.
It never works out. Ever.

We have almost 8 billion people on the planet, nearly all of whom live in opposition to nature. THAT caused climate change. In order to live in the style which most of us call “comfort,” a style that ignores the natural cycles of the planet, we have spewed untold tons of pollutants into the air and the water. This will never get fixed by those same 8 billion people who caused it. Basic Rule: Everything we do to improve things ALWAYS makes things worse. History shows this with crystal clarity. Yet of all sublunary creatures, only we Human Beings insist on “improving” the planet. As if the planet needed our help! If that doesn’t define delusional and egotistical, what does? And that very delusion created all the problems we now face. How can the minds that did this to us and to the planet seriously expect to correct it?

Let’s face it: With the current situation, we see nothing less than planet getting rid of a major threat. By threat, I mean we meddlesome, intrusive HUMAN BEINGS.

Humans can do absolutely nothing to repair the imbalance we caused in the biosphere… unless we get into harmony with the planet. Good luck with that! It gets dark at night? You live in the dark till morning. You want to travel 2,000 miles? Prepare yourself for a monumental trek. Get hot in the summer and cold in the winter. No more pernicious, destructive tommyrot about “conquering nature” or “taming the wilderness.”

But we know this will never happen. Modern humans will not drop everything and live in harmony with the environment like the Kalahari Bushmen or the few remaining unsullied tribal communities in the Brazilian Jungle. Yet nothing short of that will work. Not buying a hybrid car… not building a massive transcontinental railroad network (making the required steel will alone result in horrendous environmental damage)… definitely not putting more nuclear power plants on line… none of that will help.

The FEAR now implanted in people comes from nothing more than marketing hype.

Yes, this FEAR comes from marketing, deliberately, callously, and cold-heartedly devised to scare us into buying useless things at best, toxic things at worst.

You want to do some good? Ignore the hype and concentrate on local projects and goals that you can make workable. You have a factory where you live that spews poisons into the air and/or water? Go after them. You see black smoke pouring out of an apartment building’s chimney? Go after them. Do the small things like that, things at which you can succeed, and you will make real change. Do the possible. Don’t dissipate your energies on some chimera about “saving the planet.” Saving the planet? I cannot think of a more perfect example of grandiose thinking, which psychiatrists list as a prime symptom of narcissistic personality disorder.

Let go of the FEAR.

This FEAR provides nothing more than a gigantic distraction. Because of the fear, people worry needlessly about the unattainable and ignore the practical. All while getting beaten up by rich people with something to sell us.

I for one will not be lectured on the need to conserve water by some rich schmuck with four swimming pools.

I will not be scolded over the need to cut back on fossil fuel use by an etiolated, schoolmarmish billionaire who takes a helicopter to go just 30 miles from Manhattan to Westchester.

I will not be harangued about the evils of take-out Styrofoam containers by some mollycoddled trust-fund baby who dines on Maine lobster flown to her mansion that morning on a private jet.

Spending your hard-earned money on GREEN shower-heads and GREEN light-bulbs and GREEN automobiles and “LOW CARBON” shampoo and “ECO-FRIENDLY” remote controls for your energy-eating electronic gadgets (Yes, there is such a thing) won’t put the slightest dent in the situation. But that’s the name of the game. Get us all in FEAR over the environment and then slap GREEN or LOW CARBON on useless things to buy. So many people fall for this bushwa that news reports call GREEN products and GREEN MARKETING a “growth industry.”

Flashback To An Earlier Marketing Craze

Buying these products does nothing more than provide a simulacrum of alleviating the problem. It adds up to nothing more than feel-good poppycock; puffery designed purely to separate us from our money while providing the illusion of taking beneficial action. Marketers spend billions getting us to think that buying those baubles and gimcracks from them allows us to do a good thing. This is a shuck, achieved with flimflam and deception. A con game. In short, it is pure Madison Avenue. Remember back in the 1980s when the advertisers relentlessly hawked OAT BRAN – exploiting the FEAR of fatal heart attacks? Everything had OAT BRAN in it – until the craze was proven baseless. Oat bran… same as today’s GREEN-this and GREEN-that. Only now instead of your heart, they throw the whole damn planet at you. Marketers can always find something to pull of their hats to scare us into spending money… Exploiting FEAR is their sole job. Let go of this fear and you kick the pins out from under their scam. Until the next Oat Bran comes along.

Don’t. Be. A. Chump.

Men! Are you LICENSED TO CARRY? 

Yes, we all agree that Sexual Harassment of women is a very real thing that must be stemmed. But now Sexual Harassment has become a euphemism for rape. And we get such idiocy as this comment from NYC Mayor Bill deBlasio: Let me be clear, every single person who has the courage to come forward with a sexuaharassment complaint deserves to be believed.” No investigation? No trial? No questioning of the complaining witness? Allegations are now taken as fact simply because the alleger has… a vagina? That is the sign of a Witch Hunt, men, and now we see open season on The Pernicious Pale Penis People. Everything bad… is YOUR fault.
Sooner or later, some poor schnook is going to be attacked for… carrying a concealed penis in his pants. You know that’s coming.  So men: why be at risk of getting charged with carrying a concealed penis? To forestall such lunacy, here’s the OFFICIAL CONCEALED CARRY PENIS PERMIT! The permit will fit in your wallet, so don’t EXPOSE YOURSELF to trouble! Never leave home without it… the card, that is.

Gullible People, Rise Up!

January 29, 2017
The 19 month election was a fear-con. We were given nothing but NAZI! FASCIST! WE’RE GONNA DIE! over and over.
People were scared and angry.
People are still scared and angry.
Angry, frightened people are very easy to con.
For instance, how many of us believed the story that Trump’s travel ban excluded nations he does business with?
His ban only mentions one nation: SYRIA. The others are “nations of concern” as listed in a law signed by Pres. Obama.
Remember the protest when that happened?
Neither do I.
You may wish to educate yourself HERE
screen-shot-2017-01-29-at-6-46-13-pm
But fear and anger is what led people to buy, without question, the fake story about Trump’s business interests. As if he really has any!
Fooling people by making them scared and angry is such an old technique that there was a Broadway show about exactly this technique.
So if you believed that Trump specifically named 7 countries and excluded those he does business with, then you were played as easily as the corn-fed jays in Iowa.

The Upside Of Conservative Cruelty…

September 23, 2013

Is there really an upside to the republicans cutting food stamps and trying to make health insurance unaffordable to the average worker? There sure is! It puts the lie to any conservative claim that America is a Christian nation. Christians feed the poor and heal the sick. Early Christians are the first organized communists as well. It is in the very bible the followers of the rabbi Jesus claim to read (but like RICK SANTORUM, never have and never will):

Acts of the Apostles, Chapter 4

32 All the believers were one in heart and mind. No one claimed that any of their possessions was their own, but they shared everything they had. 33 With great power the apostles continued to testify to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus. And God’s grace was so powerfully at work in them all 34 that there were no needy persons among them. For from time to time those who owned land or houses sold them, brought the money from the sales 35 and put it at the apostles’ feet, and it was distributed to anyone who had need.

— Hmmm Sounds like redistribution of wealth to me. Was it voluntary? Nope. One couple who held back on their possessions was killed… by GOD.

ananias_sapphira-633x764

Next Chapter:

Acts 5 Ananias and Sapphira

5 Now a man named Ananias, together with his wife Sapphira, also sold a piece of property. 2 With his wife’s full knowledge he kept back part of the money for himself, but brought the rest and put it at the apostles’ feet.

3 Then Peter said, “Ananias, how is it that Satan has so filled your heart that you have lied to the Holy Spirit and have kept for yourself some of the money you received for the land? 4 Didn’t it belong to you before it was sold? And after it was sold, wasn’t the money at your disposal? What made you think of doing such a thing? You have not lied just to human beings but to God.”

 5 When Ananias heard this, he fell down and died. And great fear seized all who heard what had happened. 6 Then some young men came forward, wrapped up his body, and carried him out and buried him.

 7 About three hours later his wife came in, not knowing what had happened. 8 Peter asked her, “Tell me, is this the price you and Ananias got for the land?”

“Yes,” she said, “that is the price.”

9 Peter said to her, “How could you conspire to test the Spirit of the Lord? Listen! The feet of the men who buried your husband are at the door, and they will carry you out also.”

 10 At that moment she fell down at his feet and died. Then the young men came in and, finding her dead, carried her out and buried her beside her husband. 11 Great fear seized the whole church and all who heard about these events.

In short, good Christians are communists who believe that people should help others and not have private property. Period. There is no way around this. All the Bloombergs and FOX “news” talking heads cannot argue that one away. Thus America is most decidedly NOT in any way shape or form a Christian nation. So shut the fuck up about it.

Something To Consider…

April 17, 2013

NYPD - New York's Finest - Pepper Sprays Innocent By-Standers Out of FEAR of Occupy Movement.  Perhaps A Tad Less Fixation On Legal Protest And More On Terrorism? Hmmmmm?

NYPD – New York’s Finest – Pepper Sprays Innocent By-Standers Out of FEAR of Occupy Movement. Perhaps A Tad Less Fixation On Legal Protest And More On Terrorism? Hmmmmm?

Perhaps if American law enforcement had not needlessly squandered millions of dollars and countless man-hours spying on and infiltrating the peaceful Occupy movement, or stopping and frisking innocent citizens by the millions, they would have freed up their finite resources to pay attention to those who are truly dangerous. And then perhaps law enforcement could have prevented the Boston attack.

But OCCUPY and young Black men scare the crap out of the richest Americans so that was where the money went. More’s the pity. And the shame.

LATE NEWS: Manhattan DA will NOT prosecute this violent man. So far the only punishment for Fat Tony Baloney is… he lost 10 vacation days. Wow…

All I Will Say About “Sequestration”

March 1, 2013

american-police-state

All I will say about the “sequestration” of funds:
What we have been hearing: Teachers fired! Police laid off! Prisoners released! Air Traffic Controllers Fired! Meat Inspectors Fired! VA hospitals closing!
What we SHOULD be hearing: People who monitor your phone calls FIRED! Warrantless Wire Tap Program SUSPENDED! People who look at surveillance camera output LAID OFF! Undercover informers in Church, Temple, Mosque and Occupy Movement LET GO!
Why does the ax only fall on services we like? How about chopping away at the police state?

People Who Chase Wealth PISS AWAY THEIR LIVES!

September 7, 2012

There is something fundamentally pathetic about people who dedicate their lives to amassing wealth. And those people KNOW IT. Remember when Ted Turner gave a billion dollars to the United Nations? He didn’t do it because it was a good thing to do, or because it was a way to help people. He stated at the time, that he did it because he knew if he gave away a billion dollars he would not be in the running to be the richest person in the world. He said the urge to be richer than anyone else was perverting everything in his life. Good point. Personally, I think the old adage should be reversed: we should ask, “If you’re so smart, then how come you’re rich?” It takes a particularly shallow mind to think that money and owning things is the goal of life. Look at Romney, for example. Or Bloomberg. They each have over six domiciles. I did not use the word “homes” because anyone with that number of places to live HAS NO HOME. These foolish, foolish people have rendered themselves HOMELESS in their pursuit of possessions. And again, they know it. When his policies are questioned, Bloomberg has been known to snap at reporters, “My Plan B is better than your Plan A!” What the hell does that mean? It means that when he feels threatened, all he has to fall back on is telling you that he is richer than you are. But he has no idea of a person so satisfied with life that he or she DOESN’T NEED A GODDAMN “PLAN B.” All he has is this wealth that he can never spend but he is compelled to add to nevertheless. It is a sickness well portrayed in such classics of our culture as Citizen Kane. For in the final analysis, can we ever really own anything? All the rich can do is gather things together for the people who will fight over them when they have died. And in the end, when they draw their last breath, here is what people like Romney and Bloomberg and the execrable Dick Cheney or the vile Rupert Murdoch will be thinking: “This CAN’T be happening to me! I have too much money!” But it will happen to them. And then, they will reap the Karma they have so diligently and so ignorantly chosen to sow. And you know something? They may find in that hard, cruel life to come the very happiness that eluded them this time around as they chased THINGS rather than embraced life. The poor, miserable fools…

Now… why on earth would you want to vote for people like this? People with no sense of reality when it comes to life? People who value things above people? Why would you want to give these misguided people power over your existence? Is that wise?

Mayor Hates Happy Hour!

May 17, 2012

When it suits his political purposes, New York City’s Mayor Bloomberg touts the small business as the backbone of our economy. He sings their praises. But how does Bloomberg treat small businesses? Like crap. He daily sends out squads of nitpicking bureaucrats to hit them with fines for the most arcane so-called violations. Every year our small businesses fork out hundreds of thousands in penalties for such infractions as having a vendor’s license in the pocket and not hanging around the neck (that’s a thousand bucks right there), or maybe an inspector noted a fly in a restaurant. Or a truck is making a delivery so it gets whacked with a fine for standing there. The list is endless. Bloomberg has already gone on record as saying the NYPD is his personal army. Clearly he feels that way about all the agencies which exist to SERVE THE PEOPLE.

Now ask this: How does Bloomberg treat BIG businesses? Every year he doles out hundreds of millions of dollars in corporate welfare to companies like Fresh Direct and others who say that without this baksheesh they would leave the City. It’s all a game Bloomberg plays on behalf of the super-wealthy at the expense of hardworking small business operators. With that mentality in mind, we note with little surprise that Mayor Bloomberg is again exploring ways to destroy New York City’s vibrant nightlife, which is nothing if not a collection of small businesses. Bloomberg failed some years ago to move the bars’ traditional 4:30 closing time up by several hours. Now MSNBC, among other outlets, reports that he wants to eliminate Happy Hours, wherein us working folk take some time to celebrate the end of the workday with a discounted libation or two. And of course, Happy Hour is a boon for all bars and restaurants, pulling millions into the economy and keeping these businesses healthy. When the crass mayor goes to a restaurant, reports show that he loudly orders the most expensive wine on the list, regardless of the food served. But should you are I want a reduced price shooter, nothing doing. That, friends, is real class-warfare.

Bloomberg is apparently intent on remaking the city to cure his own peculiar vices. The man pours salt on everything he eats, so he talks about banning salt from restaurant tables. He shovels bags of crappy snacks into his face during meetings, so he decides to ban hydrogenated oils (replacing them with the equally lethal Tropical oils). He is a reformed smoker, so he attacks smoking – soon to push a ban on all smoking in all apartment buildings, the privacy of your own home. Drinking holds an equally special place for Bloomberg. As has been reported in the media, Bloomberg is wont to drink so much wine with dinner that he blacks out (see NY Daily News, Saturday, February 26th, 2005). The man has a bizarre habit of seeing in others the very traits he considers repulsive in himself… So naturally Bloomberg, the man who drinks too much, wants to shut down our local bars, starting with his Happy Hour Ban. It won’t work any better than did Prohibition, which sent the nation on a 13 year drinking binge. But like all Out-of-Town reformers, he will try. Why he is doing this, well we leave that to the psychiatrists he so clearly needs.

Listen: Over the last 11 years as mayor, Bloomberg has evinced the greatest disdain for The People since Marie Antoinette. We need to show him that in spite of his power-hungry presumptions, Bloomberg is not the Queen of New York City. When the elections come around next year, he will either try to run again – he already used his billions to flout the Term-Limit laws last election – or he will stand aside and run a puppet like Raymond Kelly or Christine Quinn. He is already playing these two against each other in the media to make them fall in line with his grandiose schemes. What’s the answer? Oust the little sonovabitch! Do not let him or one of his flunkies get into office or the city will be no better than a small town north of Peoria. Is that what you want? It’s what Bloomberg wants. Mull that over the next time you reach across the bar for a bit of liquid refreshment after work.

All we want is to send Bloomberg back to Baltimore after the next election… Let New York City be New York City.

Of course, the picture above is presented in the spirit of fun. There are MANY profound differences between Michael Bloomberg and the late Carrie Nation. For instance, Ms. Nation was 6 feet tall…

George Carlin Tells It Like It REALLY Is…

August 1, 2010

CATCH IT WHILE YOU CAN…

Let’s see how long this stays on YouTube…
