|Why, Unite the Many, Defeat the Few? It is our country, dammit!
by Hollis Stewart
The challenges facing our nation today call upon us to work together as a people to project the best of the values of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. It is time
that we stop the use of the US Military as a mercenary group to further private, not public, narrow corporate business interests in other countries while declaring this
misuse of military force as in the "national interest". Our military should be used only for legitimate national interests --- the defense of the nation --- and not the
cockamamie occupation of other countries in order to allow our oil corporations to steal the wealth of the occupied and thereby deny their peoples the resources
they need to develop their own nations and move to peace and prosperity in the world.
The preamble of the Constitution of the United States commits the government to provide for the American people with these words:
provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our
Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."
have been allowed to modify economic practices to their benefit while endangering the homes of families unable to cope with debt.
The wealthy have profited off the backs of the common Americans and amassed undreamed of wealth for their personal use while health, education, and the general welfare of the
population has been endangered. It is the duty of a nation to provide through a government for the common needs of the people: education, health, housing,
nourishment, i.e. the general welfare and this function requires that taxes be raised to pay the costs. At one time, not many years ago, the majority of taxes were paid
by corporations and the wealthy but the government, responding to the non-constitutional 4th branch of government, THE LOBBYISTS OF THE PRIVATE
INTERESTS, have changed the tax structure so that the burden has been transferred to the middle income and working people of the country.
Consequently when there is not "sufficient" tax revenues then services to the poor and working people are cut --- not the subsidies to the rich including the use of the military to guard their private
interests. And it should be noted that the cost of the military is threatening to bankrupt the nation --- not the social services such as social security, medicare, and the like, no the military which
produces nothing but consumes tremendous national resources.
THERE IS AN ANSWER: ORGANIZE OURSELVES TO TAKE THE GOVERNMENT AWAY FROM THE RICH AND POWERFUL AND RETURN IT TO THE DUTIES PRESCRIBED BY THE
CONSTITUTION AND THE BILL OF RIGHTS. IF THE RICH AND POWERFUL HAVE TAKEN THE GOVERNMENT THEN THEY ARE AN OCCUPIER, A FOREIGN AND STRANGE ENTITY AND IN
THE WORDS OF THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE,
POLITICAL BANDS WHICH HAVE CONNECTED THEM WITH ANOTHER, AND TO ASSUME AMONG THE POWERS
OF THE EARTH, THE SEPARATE AND EQUAL STATION TO WHICH THE LAWS OF NATURE AND OF NATURE'S
GOD ENTITLE THEM, A DECENT RESPECT FOR THE OPINIONS OF MANKIND REQUIRES THAT THEY SHOULD
DECLARE THE CAUSES WHICH IMPEL THEM TO THE SEPARATION."
This is our cause: to restore our government by the people, for the people. We must take back our country so that we, our children, and
their children can enjoy the fruits of liberty and justice for all and not be forced to live under the Iron Heel (see the wonderful book of that
name by one of our best authors, Jack London) of the oligarchy. If not you and I, who? Good old JL deserves criticism for his narrow
minded racial/racist views but other than that he was pretty savy.
|As Americans we don't owe any
politician anything. They work for
citizens: Build pressure to make the
Medicare program into Medicare4All
--- a program to cover every resident
of the USA with medical care. Then
our corporations can compete with
foreign countries in which
government programs provide
medical care for their citizens and
the foreign corporations aren'
saddled with that expense.
This isn't rocket science it is good

|Friends: Recently I camped down along the Mexican
Border and while there took a look at the Ugly,
Disgusting, apartheid fence that we are building along
the border to keep the Mexicans out. I remember when
the Berlin Wall came down as a symbol of freedom and
now we and Israel are building walls --- whoa, what is
that all about? Why not a border wall with Canada: Oh,
right, Canadians are considered to be "white" and they
are all right. Here are some pictures I took of this God
awful border fence that the Bushites built to curry favor
with the right wing racist xenophobes. The only thing
equally stupid with this fence is the xenophobic law
called SB1070 passed in Arizona. I grew up in Arizona
and I know most Arizonians aren't as ignorant, racist, and
illiterate as the governor they elected and re-elected. It
is the nincompoops in Phoenix who have never been
able to find their rectum with both hands free and a
flash light who cause the problems for Arizona.

Since the collapse of 2007-2008 articles in the LA

probably never be regained as more production

|A little about "patriotism" also called "nationalism". A lot of commentators spout off about how we are Americans and that we are all in this
economic mess together. They preach this so that you and I won't questions the fact that the government hands out a few trillion dollars to
the rich, new figures released in September 2011 show the big banks got bailed out to the tune of $12.3Trillion while we didn't get squat. Oh
a Trillion looks like this $1,000,000,000,000 (a thousand billion) see, so when they give away multiples of trillions it is a lot of our taxes.
PATRIOTISM IS NOTHING BUT SAND IN YOUR EYES TO MAKE YOU DUMB DOWN AND BELIEVE IDIOTIC DRIVEL FROM POLITICIANS
AND MILITARY OFFICERS WHO DO NOTHING BUT TAKE YOUR MONEY AND KILL YOUR CHILDREN. When was the last time you heard
of the children of the President, of Senators, of Congress persons dying for their country. No, you didn't and you won't. Hell, even Mubarak

social safety net? Simple, It's the
those who make money off the deaths of our
young Americans and profit from the wars and the
tax policies of the GOP from the time of Reagan
that are taking us down.
The attack on older citizens is just more divide and

reproductive rights. Are GOP men all impotent and believe that the only power/salvation they have smashing women under their
thumb or perhaps they believe in the Reich policy for women of küche (kitchen), schlatzimmer (bedroom), kinderzimmer (children's
bedroom - the kinder(garten)), hauserbeit (housework --- slaves to the male), and pregnant (schwanzen) for the super race.

|11/30/15: In an effort to solve the insoluble problems of Capital the US and its western allies are
attempting again to change history by attacking the oil countries of the middle east. Capital has
reached its limits and now in a world that is becoming a closed system for constant expansion the
wealthy are attempting to maintain their control through impoverishing the working peoples of the
advanced countries by pushing the race to the bottom -- of course this has it's own problem because
if the better paid working class, the so called middle class, are pushed down in wages then who is
going to buy all the crap produced through labor? Well, if wages are pushed lower in the advanced
countries then some of their product may sell in the poorer countries but that is an end game too
since the foreign workers will be kept at much lower levels so some cheap goods are available to be
sent back to the more advanced countries in an effort to deceive working people that Capital still
works. Notice how the economists, the government, and the spokespersons for big business keep
harping on the supposed fact that capital(ism) is the only system and that there are no alternatives.
Well think about this: What if different communities of people demanded that they set the standard
and the amount of materials produced instead of corporations: i.e. The market were really
determined by the people who would consume. And as part of this the people demanded that
everything be built to last like the stuff shipped into space that lasts for years in one heck of a
hostile environment instead of falling apart after a short time: planned obsolescence. Yes, this
would knock down the unending market fed by vanity but it would slow or stop the piles of trash that
are the accumulated throw away consumer goods that waste resources and despoil the earth with
trash. And once the community decided what they wanted produced to meet their needs then the
production system now run by cooperatives or workers associations produced only what was
needed and at the highest standards. Then the distribution of products would be handled through
community or cooperative owned distribution systems for the good of human kind instead of for
profit. In other word we get away from a system where working people asses need, plan, and
produce in a way that values human beings instead of operating to amass profits and wealth for a
few at the top?
11-5-2015: PREDICTABLY RUSSIA HAS RESPONDED TO US ATTEMPTS TO IMPOSE HEGEMONY
OVER THE MIDDLE EAST BY BRINGING FORCES INTO SYRIA. OF COURSE THE MILITARY
THINKERS IN D.C. HAVE CONVINCED OBAMA TO BEGIN TO MOVE FORCES INTO PLACE TO
TROUBLE THE RUSSIANS JUST AS HE IS DOING THE SAME IN THE EAST SEA IN A PISSING
MATCH WITH CHINA. OUR NATION DOESN'T SEEM TO WANT TO RECOGNIZE THAT OTHER
NATIONS HAVE DIFFERENT AGENDAS AND SEE NO REASON TO PLEASE THE US. THREATS
DIRECTED AT NATIONS WITH NUCLEAR WEAPONS IS A STRATEGY OF STUPIDITY, NOT
STRENGTH AND INTELLIGENCE.
8-26-15: Syria: The US backed rebels who used poison gas against civilians and tried to blame it on
the government are losing allies after they have used mustard gas again this month, August 2015.
The US is having trouble continuing to back them since their coalition includes Al Qaeda and others
that the US has denounced as "terrorists".
8-26-2015: US hegemony is falling on its butt. In the Ukraine the puppet regime that we installed
has stalled in its tracks as the corruption of the oligarchs is destroying any credibility that the junta
could claim. The Ukraine government listened to US Ambassador Nuland when she told the fascists
and NAZI lovers to attempt to genocide Russians living in the East.
The US continues to try to force Russia to bend to US will through the use of sanctions and war
games on Russia's borders. Now Russia is holding their own war games in concert with China and
Russia is also beefing up their air force, their intercontinental missiles, their general war weaponry
and their nuclear arms and have let it be known that they will use their strength if they are attacked.
Messing with Russia is not the same as messing with some fifth rate regional power but a nuclear
armed highly developed nation. A nuclear war will leave no one as a winner. Kiss your children's
and your grand children's asses goodbye -- because after nuclear war cockroaches, rats, and others
will rule the world.
Some times one must wonder: Does the US act so belligerently because the US has not been
invaded by a foreign power since the War of 1812 and lacks active memory of the tragedy of world
war? It is easy to be all swaggering and belligerent when you believe that the casualties won't come
home but with nuclear armed missiles the war will come home. Only a few nukes exploding in
places around the planet: US, Russia, Western Europe, China, and Australia and the blasts plus
radiation will cause terror way beyond the capability of ISIL. Low level officers and politicians get
promoted when higher level officers or politicos die or retire and war offers a big chance for
promotions so guess why they favor war and think you and I are expendable.
2-17-2015: Latest thoughts on the mess in the middle east. We have managed to screw up in
Afghanistan, Iraq, Yemen, Syria, Egypt, Libya and we are doing the same interfering and supporting
Nazis in Ukraine . In Syria we are now confronted with fighting the forces that were supposedly our
allies just a few months ago.
1-4-2015: Well fellow Americans, here it is 2015 and our make believe leader in Washington goes
about stirring up bad foreign relations with Russia, China, DRK, and so many more places in order
to divert attention from his lack of production of anything useful at home. One of the few useful
achievements would be Obama care but it is a steer when it comes to propagating real medical care
for the American people after he bowed to the Insurance companies, Wall Street and the Big Banks.
Now we are told he is going to push his agenda in his last two years without a majority in either
house because he wasted time on sidling up to the GOP.
That is why I believe we need a new left party that will fight for the people of the country and screw
the Banksters, Insurance companies, Wall Street thieves and the rest of the creeps that are stealing
our freedom, our wealth, and our nation of humanity and caring.
Farcical elections were just held in the Western part of the Ukraine, the area under Fascist control
and now they hope to move forward into NATO and get missiles on their land aimed at Russia.

12-4-13: The new Vatican resident, and I don't think in the pope is the hope, has spoken out against
the fetters of capitalism/consumerism in a manner uncharacteristic of the last few popes. He seems
to have some understanding that the greed and hoarding of those at the top of the economic ladder
doesn't trickle down and trickle down theory isn't working cause there ain't no trickle, and that is a
10-8-2013: In Vietnam the loss of General Giap was mourned across the country. One US media
outlet, the NYT, had an article with really stupid observations. For instance they said that no military
leader would have allowed so many people to die. This observation was credited to the late General
Westmoreland, one of the people who directed the war and killed millions of civilians using chemical
weapons, napalm and other assorted heinous and genocidal weapons. Showing his ignorance and
stupidity and that of the US military he thought that the Vietnamese would give up and surrender.
10-5-3013: Yesterday it was announced in Hanoi that General Vo Nguyen Giap had passed away at
102 years of age. General Giap led the Vietnamese armed forces for several decades when they
defeated the French (that were backed by the US) and then the US invasion in the American War [FYI
this name is the one used by the Vietnamese and is directed toward the war policy of the US
government and not the US people. Ho Chi Minh taught constantly that the US people were not an
enemy of VN. Most of the people in the US called this the Indo-China or Vietnam War.]. The US
forces were ushered into Vietnam by a puppet fascist government installed by the US and its allies in
the Vatican after the defeat of France. General Giap advocated People's War, a strategy that
depended on organizing the entire nation against outside invaders and with resistance from top to
bottom. In response the US used terror tactics of Agent Orange, chemical warfare, bombing dikes
flooding foodstuffs, carpet bombing. white phosphorous and napalm as well as special operations
spec-ops, tactics of genocide. If you don't know about the meaning of special ops find out.
9-11-13: Russia has stepped in to save the rears of Obama and Kerry who shot their mouths off and
have been trying to recover some credibility with everyone around on the chemical weapons in
Syria. The US will try to get back at Russia and Putin.
Of course the readers of my rant have the right to their own opinion but whomever agrees that
corporations are people and the money being spent is just free speech and is not expected by the
spenders to achieve their political goals then I would like to know why they believe that the rich and
powerful would flush their riches down the toilet, i.e. spend their money without the thought that it
would achieve their goals.
