Practical Joke Gone Mad?

Who's The Crazy One Here?

Who’s The Crazy One Here?

The “clock boy” saga continues.

We’ve all heard about the kid who supposedly engineered a clock that looked exactly like a terrorist bomb and took it to school. After a couple of days, hearing more facts and seeing the “clock”, I was inclined to think the poor kid was probably being harassed at school because he looked like somebody from the middle east, and decided to hackle some feathers.

We’re talking about America in 2015 here. White Americans are terrified of dark skinned people from everywhere. It defines us – at least on the “news”. When the American media decided to make Charles Manson the face of the hippie movement in the sixties, I wanted to paint a picture of Manson on the back windshield of my Chevy Nova. That was just a thought I never carried out, but I did think about it.

Today, my first inclination is to side with everybody that the majority of congress wants us to fear. African Americans, Hispanics, old people, poor people, former felons, students, non-whites…

You know… potential voters!

So, I would be glad to see the facts come out. Was it a clock designed to look like a bomb, which caused a few of our leaders to come out in support of a brave kid who’d had enough bullying?

I’d like to think I would have done that as a fourteen year old, or a politician.

Cause some trouble; do no harm. :)


When Racism Died a Little in Utah

Villa Theatre in it's heyday

Villa Theater in it’s hey-day

I don’t know what it is about fried chicken restaurant chains and Salt Lake City, but we somehow played host to the birth of two popular ones last century. Obviously, Kentucky Fried Chicken is still around, but the other one, which was also opening outlets around the country is gone. I’ll get to that later.

I’m old enough to remember what the original KFC, which is still located at 3900 south State Street, looked like. It featured a very large painting of a butt naked child with the caption, “Come As You Are!” Probably something you wouldn’t see today.

The picture above is obviously not a chicken restaurant. It’s the facade of the old Villa Theatre, which was later changed into a rug outlet, at great expense, to keep the structure similar to what it was. The theater was actually pretty famous for it’s day and as late as 2001, was named on a list of ten great classic Theaters in the United States by USA today.

When I was six years old the Villa theater was showing “South Pacific”, and I remember very well how the songs from that movie were being played and sung all over town. The Creators of the play that the movie was based on ran into trouble because of a song in the play called “You’ve Got to Be Carefully Taught”, but demanded the famous anti-racism song be included in the production.

From Wikipedia:

Rodgers and Hammerstein risked the entire South Pacific venture in light of legislative challenges to its decency or supposed Communist agenda.


James Michener, upon whose stories South Pacific was based, recalled, “The authors replied stubbornly that this number represented why they had wanted to do this play, and that even if it meant the failure of the production, it was going to stay in.

Also from Wikipedia:

In 1958, the [Villa Theatre] became famous for showing a 10-month-long run of South Pacific, drawing Patrons from as far as Idaho and Nevada.

If I recall correctly, another great anti-racism movie, (West Side Story), played in Salt Lake for almost 2 Years. I always like to accentuate the good in my community because I’ve lived here all my life. After the Villa put up their huge Cinerama screen, which, at first, required three different synchronized projectors to play a film, I saw some great ones, including my favorite: “2001 A Space Odyssey”. I was buzzing with excitement after that one.

The Villa theatre was a place of wonder, but just down the street was the other national fried chicken chain that had it’s birth in Salt Lake.

My family had a get together and we were going through some very old pictures, when I saw something unbelievable.

Brawny, Brainy and Funny

The recent events in Ferguson have put a larger spotlight on racism then usual. I ran across this small portion of a 1971 interview with Muhammad Ali.

Ali is a special guy. He was arrogant to a fault, spit in the eye of the military industrial complex, denounced the power structure, religious leanings and bigotry of his country and is beloved by all.

This is why:


Children are Often Oppressed in Religious Households

“Children are often oppressed in religious households”; when I read that line in Mark Galli’s op-ed over the weekend, I literally stopped reading mid-sentence.  Here’s the whole passage:

But the fact that children are often oppressed in religious households suggests that there is indeed something in religion which tempts parents in this way. That temptation is the inherent human fascination with law and control. People become religious for many reasons, good and bad. One for many is that their lives are completely out of control morally and socially, and they see in religion a way to bring order to the chaos. Religion as inner police. Such adherents are attracted to religions, or denominations within religions, that accent discipline and obedience. This happens — surprisingly — even in Christianity.

Its Confirmed. The Republican Party (GOP) is Racist or Infested With Racists or Something

I think at this point, its pretty clear that racism is rampant in the GOP.  And I think it always was.  It just took a Black man becoming president to bring it back to the surface.


According to Michael Steel, former RNC chair, the Southern Strategy is alive and well.

I’m building a YouTube playlist for your convenience.

Make of This What You Will

I’d call it a turning point.

John Nichols and Thom Hartmann are very careful to not say something which isn’t true. I can only wish I had the time to do the same.

So you think if this beautiful young man had been carrying a gun instead of skittles and shot the white guy: he would have been given the same rights to a fair trial.

Come on! Get real!


Walks like a duck, talks like a duck, looks like a duck…

… must be a fish.

After all, it can’t be bigotry, ’cause they keep telling us how they aren’t!

The Conservative Political Action Conference, going on right now, will not include pro-equality Republican group GOProud, which was ousted after fury from religious right groups involved in the conference. But it did include white supremacists.

Marilyn Davenport: A Racist Teabagger From OC California.


Speaking of nameless cowards, there is one alleged “coward” in southern California we should be grateful to for exposing Marilyn Davenport, a Southern California Tea Party activist and member of the central committee of the Orange County Republican Party, as a racist teabagger.  Indeed, a teabagger to which all the majority of teabaggers might someday aspire were they honest enough to come out publicly and admit their true feelings why they resent President and First Lady Michelle Obama occupying the White House.

Here is a shot at Davenport’s handiwork:

Her explanation?

Oh, come on! Everybody who knows me knows that I am not a racist. It was a joke. I have friends who are black. Besides, I only sent it to a few people–mostly people I didn’t think would be upset by it.

But Marilyn apparently does not see her being labeled a racist a joking matter:

After this story was published, she sent another email to fellow California conservative activists. It demanded to know the identity of “the coward” who supplied [The Weekly] with a copy of her offensive email.

Nice joke, Marilyn!!  Oh, and thank you Jesus for this “coward.”

Rep. Gabrielle Giffords Shot; four to six others reported dead (updated)

According to MSNBC, Rep. Giffords was shot point blank in the head at a public event in Tucson.

There are few details at this point.

NPR and MSNBC are reporting the congresswoman is dead, as are six others.  The shooter is in custody.

UPDATE 12:50 p.m. – MSNBC is now reporting the congresswoman is in surgery – she’s not dead but she is very critical.


Meet the Greasy White Spineless Underbelly of America; the Racist, Pro-Gun, Tea Party Movement Goes to Washington…Almost

There is little more that needs to be said about the anti-“We, the people” pro-gun movement. It it all summed up in this video of Alabama Militia Leader Mike Vanderboegh. For the most part, the fanatic pro-gun crowd are cowards. Thats why they are so scared and that’s why almost no one showed up despite the free advertising provided courtesy of Fox News Scum.

Thanks to The Coalition to Stop Gun Violence for the video.

Signs reading “Which part of ‘shall not be infringed’ confuses you?” and bright orange stickers saying “Guns save lives” dotted the crowd at the Washington Monument. Across the Potomac River in Alexandria, former Alabama Minutemen leader Mike Vanderboegh told the crowd armed confrontation should be reserved only for instances of the government threatening people’s lives.

However, he said it might be justified if people face arrest for refusing to buy insurance under the health care reform package recently passed by Congress.

“If I know I’m not going to get a fair trial in federal court … I at least have the right to an unfair gunfight,” Vanderboegh said. Source

For those of you too young to remember, this is the nothing more than a newly branded Klu Klux Klan.

Where is Alan (Coward) Korwin?



“All them worthless Niggers that voted for that Nigger Obama.”

This is an actual voice mail received at Rep John Lewis‘ congressional office. The caller calls Obama and John Lewis “Nigger” a bunch of times. Is he a Tea “Partyer?” Sure sounds like one to me. But for the use of the “N”-word, the language and references are IDENTICAL to protest signs we see at KKK meetings Tea Party rallies.

Visit for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

Defenders of The Tea Party will argue that this caller does not represent them. The point is that the nature and origins (anti-Obama) of the Tea Party movement purposefully and UNAPOLOGETICALLY, appeals to and targets these kind of people, racists.

Classic example: Tea Party favorite for New York Governor, Carl Paladino refuses to apologize for racially charged comments. Why? Because HE KNOWS that racial rhetoric “appeals to the lowest instincts in man” and to “a mob mentality,” and the racist core of the Tea Party.

In other news today, Virginia’s Republican Governor Bob McDonnell has declared April to be “Confederate History Month,… McDonnell says that the Confederate history “should not be forgotten, but…remembered, [that its leaders] fought for their homes and communities and Commonwealth in a time very different than ours today.”

Everyone knows the subject of  “Confederate” means nothing more and nothing less than racism.  So why?

WHY would a politician deliberatly associate himself with racism? Answer, to appeal to racists voters.

And THIS is why The Tea Party cannot produce a platform much less a coherent reason for hating Obama because “you can’t say it out load,” unless hiding behind and phone.

“Teabonics:” A Failure of Public Education

“This is freaking hilarious! “Teabonics” – or the interesting ways that “Tea Party” activists spell things. It’s like they’re proud of being ignorant.” – Bryan Shot on Facebook
