Corps, Gov’t, Police & Provos…

When was the last time you heard of a terrorist conspiracy case that did not include a police agent or a paid “confidential informant” (CI), and wasn’t the result of a “sting operation”?

The latest such FBI-police op in the news is that of the so-called Cleveland Six (which also conveniently targets that city’s Occupy movement). No doubt their intent. more…

MAYDAY Celebrations!

Tuesday, May 1st, 2012, will be a special cause for the 99% to rally across America in celebration of International Workers’ Day. By all means, Google your own location for what’s happening where.

For Detroit, where this site is home, feel free to join workers, women, immigrants and the rights of democracy for all to assemble, march and rally at the locations and time most convenient for you: more…

A Good Beginning? A Chain of 100 Corporatists at the Bottom of the Ocean…

Here’s a few wild ideas that came to mind while I was waiting for the cell door to open over the past 20-plus years. Of course,

little did I realize that the free-world itself was becoming another level of minimum security.

After I got out, Detroit friends held a Welcome Home party for me. Perhaps I should have welcomed y’all to MY world… more…

Corporatists & Their Infantile Allies…

Ultra-right insanity works for the ruling elite because division, disruption and dissuasion is their game. For the ultra “left,” it’s a fool’s errand…or worse…

As I witness another go-around in the revolutionary struggle, I have this sinking feeling of Yogi’s inimitably stated, déjà vu, all over again. more…

Georgia, Johannesburg & Jerusalem…

In October of ’59, I and a black friend sat down at an Augusta, Georgia, lunch-counter. We were both 17, from NYC, Army radio school students stationed at Ft. Gordon, Georgia, and out on our first pass in our new uniforms.

Bibi Netanyahu: American educated...

We stopped at a department store and ordered an ice cream soda. We didn’t have a clue…

Several minutes passed before the manager came over, leaned over the counter and said, “We don’t serve niggers!” Turning to me, he added, “And we don’t serve nigger-lovers! Now, git!” more…

Layin’ in the Cut…

There’s a saying we often use in prison, “Layin’ in the cut.” It describes a situation where one quietly awaits further time and opportunity for “payback.”

I’ve witnessed the American gulag become the largest prison system on earth…and a corporate model for future society. Welcome to my world… more…

Commentary: Political Consciousness…

When I was first asked for my opinion of the Occupy Wall Street (OWS) movement last October, I responded that the most significant factor was their central issue of 99% vs. 1%, and that this was, objectively, an anti-capitalist call.

She replied that she didn’t think that the OWS movement was making such a lofty statement nor that such would development.

“We’ll see,” I said, but also thought, That’s the difference between subjective and objective analysis. more…

2012: Diagnosis & Prescription for Revolution; A New Year’s Tale…

Perhaps there’s some truth to the saying that it takes one to know one…that bank robbers, thieves and fraudsters tend to sense their own.

Either some phenomenal synchronicity or sensory recognition process is going on in Wall Street and other financial centers, or the system itself is a criminal enterprise to begin with and attracts like-minded conspirators. My money’s on the latter. more…

Detroit as Bellwether…

A bellwether (often misspelled bellweather) is used in language and literature to indicate a future trend. It’s derived from old English for a castrated ram (a wether) that leads a flock of sheep with a bell hung from its neck.

As a 20+ yr veteran of America’s gulag, perhaps I’m somewhat more sensitive to such indications…

For the purpose of this article, it also indicates the stalking horses of wealthy patrons, such as, Republican governors Rick Scott of Florida, Scott Walker of Wisconsin, John Kasich of Ohio, Chris Christie of New Jersey and Rick Snyder of Michigan (frustrated losers in every other area of their thwarted lives, despite corporate-media propaganda). more…

Occupy Valley Forge…

Once again, due to health issues (sciatica and degenerative arthritis of the lower back and left leg)), I have to apologize for failing to post my regular articles on this site for the past month. Fortunately, I have VA/Medicare coverage and hope to be up and running normally soon. Meanwhile, I’ll do my best to address certain commentary on topical events that I find informative and of potential interest to y’all…

Coming projections...

I’m sure most everyone is following the news related to the awakening of popular protests across the nation, indeed, around the world in the form of numerous “occupations.” In the US, that process started in NYC (Wall Street), September 17th. more…
