Funny: guy who gave felonious banks trillions warns public servants that social programs are expensive

Funny: guy who gave felonious banks trillions warns public servants that social programs are expensive

By Patrick Devlin In an apparent effort to highlight one of the reasons why Americans do not have universal health care, the federal minimum wage has not been raised in ten years and a vast majority of Americans live “paycheck to paycheck”, the fabulously spendy former president Barack Obama told a group(ie) meeting of recently elected Democrats that they should dream big, but watch the pennies, as they pursue fairness and equity for all Americans and robust environmental protection as legislators. With no obvious sense of irony, the former president, who presided over gifting private banking companies that are owned […]

Christian zealot, and US official, celebrates secret media mass

by Patrick Devlin American Secretary of State, Mufti Mike Pompeo, called a press briefing prior to his leaving on a spiritual/political/imperialist sojourn to the ‘land of the Bible’ this week, without calling upon America’s press outlets. Gothi Pompeo instead summoned a select group of the chosen to receive the good news about his plot for the spiritual and economic domination of foreign peoples and lands. The media Saltigue were brought to communion at the behest of Dastur Pompeo who determined to exile journalists who are scribes for our nation’s heathen publications, including the New York Times and the Washington Post.

Glass Ceilings, Maternal Instincts and Humanitarian War

Glass Ceilings,  Maternal Instincts and Humanitarian War

by Patrick Devlin I found out that we as a people (meaning Democratic party operatives) have finally broken through the glass ceiling with the nomination of Hillary Clinton to be their party’s candidate for president in 2016. And, we all know that America is woefully tardy when it comes to electing women candidates in primaries for presidential elections. Enlightened nations got the decades jump on the good ‘ol USA on this score – Golda Meir was the Prime Minister of Israel in the 1970’s, Margaret Thatcher was the Prime Minister of the UK in the 1980s and Angela Merkle is […]

30 percent is not a majority

30 percent is not a majority

by Patrick Devlin Only partisans ensnared by duopoly insist that there are only 2 choices in American elections. In 2012, 57 percent of American voters voted for president. Obama won 51 percent. Romney won 48 percent. That means the president was ‘elected’ by about 30 percent of American voters. It is not my fault that the status quo legacy parties have pursued a program to discourage voting reduce voter choice and stifle democracy in our country. Recall in the mentioned election, 2012, our presidential candidates chose to not debate about: imperial war and the cost of military industrialism, the failure […]

Won’t back down

Won’t back down

by Patrick Devlin The media has advised us that the real estate salesman candidate for president “won’t back down”. Not yesterday, today or for the foreseeable future. America’s casino condo king will continue to make bogus, bigoted and bizzaro statements – throwing red meat to the slack-jawed and sanctified, the bankrupt and bigoted – the foreclosed upon neo-fascisti. Even when news announcers take a firm tone, the real estate salesman candidate simply won’t back down. His legion of supporters remind that, speaking in generalities as he does and using dog-whistle coded language, the real estate salesman’s shtick doesn’t amount to […]

Universal soldiers and terrestrial body counts

Universal soldiers and terrestrial body counts

by Patrick Devlin When a terror event happens scared Americans, shaken from their consumer product induced coma, often begin demanding answers. After the inhuman and insane Paris attacks many citizens, perhaps overcome with fear and anger, demanded to know how faithful Muslims could have let the attacks happen and demanded that Muslim communities take responsibility for and apologize for the attacks. This strain of fetid group think was shown in all of its intricate bigotry, know-nothingness and apoplectic xenophobia on CNN as two of its talking head news announcers aggressively demanded an apology from a member of the Parisian Muslim […]

The Healing and Transformative Power of the Arts to Build Bridges of Peace

The Healing and Transformative Power of the Arts to Build Bridges of Peace

by Patrick Devlin As children were being incinerated by Awesome American Ordinance during the sultry days of last summer – while Americans fired up their Kindles on their beach vacations and Palestinians became kindling as Gaza burned, a group of Hollywood artists penned a letter of support for the imperial actions of our favorite recipient of military aid, Israel, noting that their “commitment to peace and justice” compelled them to promise to fully support the savage ethnic cleansing frenzy that IDF forces were daily raining on UN compounds, hospitals and schools. The signatories of the children bombing support letter made […]
