Instant Karma – John Lennon
In the wake of today’s Boston Massacre… ‘May we all shine on‘…! *g*
What’s on your mind tonite…?
Hey, CT. Sad day. Thoughts: I wish we’d get the f*k out of the middle east. And I wish we’d deal with the teahadists and survivalists…. by being all that we could be. Whatever………..
My thoughts, young, white male, ex-military (knows how to make an effective bomb), missing a body part or two.
PS: I failed propaganda 101.
Aloha, Dearie…! This is blowback, with disaffected Vets, spearheading the Patriotic charge…! 8-(
Nobody Told Me…
Eggs-actly, tuez…! 8-(
Whoever did this not only knows how to make a bomb that maims and doesn’t kill, but can hide one.
And our “security state” is a complete farce. But we know that.
Interesting. You think this was a ‘lone wolf’ whackadoodle just going for broke? Boy, that’s really sad for the people who died or lost limbs.
I don’t mean to be awful, but why don’t they ever take out the real bad guys?
This wasn’t a ‘lone wolf’ attack…! I will stop far short of calling it a ‘false flag’, but, we seem to have taken our eye off the ball, of late…!
…Since 2000, the number of hate groups has increased by 67 percent. This surge has been fueled by anger and fear over the nation’s ailing economy, an influx of non-white immigrants, and the diminishing white majority, as symbolized by the election of the nation’s first African-American president.
These factors also are feeding a powerful resurgence of the antigovernment “Patriot” movement, which in the 1990s led to a string of domestic terrorist plots, including the Oklahoma City bombing. The number of Patriot groups, including armed militias, has grown 813 percent since of the Obama was elected – from 149 in 2008 to 1,360 in 2012.
This growth in extremism has been aided by mainstream media figures and politicians who have used their platforms to legitimize false propaganda about immigrants and other minorities and spread the kind of paranoid conspiracy theories on which militia groups thrive.
We have thousands of veterans who realize they are victims. Sooner or later, they are bound to strike back.
Thanks to the MSM, they don’t know who the real bad guys are. Do you really think any of them think to take out the Kochs, Jamie Dimon, that Mozila guy from Countrywide, etc? Or any number of think tanks?
On edit: Or hell, Greenspan, Bernanke, Reagan, the Chicago School of Econ, the Austrian School of econ?
Happiness is a Warm Gun…
Good evening CT and everyone. I rarely am awake late anymore it seems and have been waaay remiss at lln.
One thing I have come to since the last massacre in our town is not to speculate or participate in trying to point any fingers at these times. I have noticed a lot of posts on FB about the wedding we bombed today in Afghanistan. . .and the bombings today in Baghdad. People are making the connection and no one is jumping all over them, so I think the consciousness about all suffering is growing. Our suffering is not exceptional, and that is so clear.
Someone just put this link on FB, interesting.
Former medic: “more like Baghdad and Bombay than Boston”…
Aloha, quiet here tonight.
Sick people with bombs,our government is full of them. Our working class hero’s occupy,and are driven away,beaten,arrested.
That it is, bg…! *sigh*
Thanks for the nice song, Tuttle. When you choose ” Steel and Glass ” as your lead in, I’ll be quite impressed. Of course, on the the other hand, it might be too rich a mix for some folks. Ah, such is life in America.
Aloha, homeroid…! No doubt…! Working Class Hero…
Aloha, wynota…! Steel and Glass…
Bad news: one of the Bush daughters gave birth today. They’ve reproduced.
This afternoon i could not listen to the radio while driving my cab. So i played everything of John Lennon. What a coinkydink. Great minds and all that. Actually my first incling was Pink Floyd.
Aloha, bw…! Certainly disturbing to see another Shrub generation…!
Did not see that,was it OK did it choke on the spoon.
Really. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.
I think it would have been bigger news if it had. I’m sure it was a silver spoon, though.
*heh* I was thinking of some Floyd too, but, Lennon still must be heard in all this sheer insanity…!
Just nod peeps…! 8-(
Well, folks, Y’all may not agree with me in many of my liberal, leftist views…! But, I certainly harbor no ill will, I just call it like I see it in my informed(or otherwise) opinion…!
Stand By Me… Please…!
I’m fixing to post a hard hitting MENA post in the morrow, I hope y’all will read it…!
I shall bid y’all a fond adieu for the evening…! Mahalo…!
Happy Christmas (War Is Over)…
