Students Take it Lying Down

Arm the Students

The leaders work for the breeders
The army works for the smarmy
The Navy ain’t gonna save me
The National Guard will come down hard

Kids look up your world is dying
Time to fight and stop the crying
You’re so caught up in getting laid
You’re not aware you’re being played

The Air Force is a force for chemtrails
Mass graves swallow conservationists entrails
Absent is a gentile discourse
To stand and fight your only recourse

Forests leveled Constitution beveled
Bill of Rights once great disheveled
Politics is no solution when you’re drowning in pollution
Learn what revolution means:demand your own AR-15’s

The Odd (but true) Story of when Space X met Alien Blueship

by joey racano

(garble*phhhhffffitt

!- pop! Crack-scratch*)

“Captain we’re getting a transmission”

“Very well, engage the translation dilectitrodes and put it on the monitors main screen”

“Aye Captain.”

1gsjs864t2csjk winwencn (bzzzt) j bikwhjebecubveqcthen we can (frrritzz) have a conversation, over” We repeat, come in Earthlings, we are very interested in the red car you sent out yesterday, over.”

“Alien Blueship, this is Captain Corbett of the Space X Heavy Rocket, reading you loud and clear. We hope you understand the vehicle does 0-60 in 1.9 Earthseconds, over.”

“Captain Corbet, this is Z-Rell, Supreme Commander of Alien Blueship, we are very concerned about the changing chemical makeup of your planet’s atmosphere, over.”

“Yes Z-Rell we are pumping the ocean and atmosphere full of CO2, but these electric cars are a first big step toward righting our sinking ship. This was the only way we could overcome the censorship of the oil companies and get the word out to you.”

“Well done Captain, and our regards to Elon Musk, Blueship over and out!”

Alien Blueship

‘Alien Blueship
Please check out our new ship
Ain’t she somethin’ purty
Electric engine clean not dirty

Alien Spaceship
Moving at a fast clip
Our planet’s the Titanic
Note the sign: ‘Don’t Panic!’

Enter Elon’s people
Waking up the sheeple
Things a little hectic
Changing oil to electric

We believe that you know
We have a closing window
The President don’t think so
We had to do it solo

Election 2016 (System is Broken)

by joey racano

The system is broken
The nuts have awoken
Led by a comb-over out of Hoboken

Call him ‘the Donald’, but he’s not a duck
Now stand by for post election Mack truck

Hillary’s cheating, no way she’s beating
All think back fondly, your freedom is fleeting

Avoid Brownshirt rallies with body count tally’s
Leftist-progressives do not walk down alleys

Shooting black kids, climate doubles
Cops who kill don’t get in trouble

Then there’s Ted Cruz to give you the blues
Meetings held at evangelical zoos

Arizona non starter, elections made harder
It’s time for observers like President Carter

No paper trail when you’ve got electronic
Add executable files as a tonic

Here comes the future, the Children of Men
Don’t learn from the past and it rises again

Super delegates, vanishing ungulates
Corporate takeover agency regulates

Hanging chad, breaking bad
Far right Obama the first black we’ve had

Shooting wolves in Idaho
Drownings at Guantanamo

Surf in feces, de-list species
Trick or treat anthrax in Reeses

Heartless Cheney, dead Scalia
See ya wouldn’t wanna be ya

Foreclosed homes in half the nation
Banks refunded, take vacation

Bernie Sanders, people’s choice
The anti-Trump our only voice

All the rest are nuts or hacks
Clinton paid by Goldman-Sachs

Drop your jocks and grab your socks
I’ll meet you at the ballot box

Take Back the Coastal Act

Canned for Protecting the Coast

Take Back the Coastal Act by joey racano

(special to EarthSourceMedia)

In the last year, the California Coastal Commission has made bold moves to protect the dwindling coast of California and in doing so, made some powerful enemies. For instance, the commission resisted allowing Shell and Exxon from drilling and fracking on Banning Ranch, last large open coastal marsh in Orange County. They stopped Pacific Gas and Electric from blasting whales with seismic air canons at the Diablo Canyon Nuclear Power Plant in San Luis Obispo County. And probably the biggest shot heard ’round the world was their ruling to forbid the captive breeding of orcas at Seaworld San Diego as a condition of approval for bigger tanks.

These powerful business interests, who see the coast as a profit center to be plundered, have struck back, forcing the Commission to remove their own Dr. Charles Lester, no longer the Executive Director as of yesterday. Lester, hand-picked by the late great Peter Douglas, was favored 890-2 by speakers at the meeting in Morro Bay this past Wednesday, but the vote still went against him, 7-5.

Now the call is out demanding Governor of California Jerry Brown to remove and replace his Coastal Commission appointees, (Effie Turnbull, Erik Howell, Martha McClure, and *Wendy Mitchell, who is a lobbyist for PG&E), all 4 having voted for Lester’s ouster in spite of enormous public opposition.

With the petition demanding the removal of the Brown appointees only 24 hours old, the balance is the same- so far, 207-1 to have them removed and the commission’s integrity and independence restored.

Here is your chance to weigh in:

Terra Attacks

Forced off the Air

Forced off the Air

Terra Attacks

The Pope has arrived as Saint Francis of Assisi
So has the gunfire on Avenue des Champs-Élysées
But who could have done these most hideous acts
The press has gone viral without all the facts

The news of the world is now 24 seven
200 dead, just a dozen to heaven
And who of all people got knocked of the air
It looks like Al Gore once again, it ain’t fair

The climate spectacular set to begin
Exxon and Mobil to court for their sin
Greenland is melting much faster than thought
We can’t let this build said big oil, distraught

What would it take to take over the airwaves
How many innocents sent to their early graves
Hire the mercenaries ten million each
When they are done meet the sub at the beach

Too many billions at stake in the game
Elton, Bon Jovi all using their fame
Bringing the climate awareness we fear
Leading to Paris December this year

Never mind polar bears, we’re the endangered
Who’s gonna pay for our jets and Road Rangers
We can’t let that concert go world-wide as planned
Go shoot up Paris and one of the band

Seaworld Sanitarium

Wednesday, October 14th, 2015
dead orca

dead orca

Seaworld Sanitarium

French Riviera never really cared
about a whale named Valentin
French Riviera never was prepared
against the storm that did him in

Halfway ‘round the world San Diego Seaworld
wanted to build bigger tanks
Couldn’t care less about Antibes muddy mess
and soon doomed to join their ranks

A Sting-ray has stung his last
Muddy bay approaching fast
Sea Turtle, Sand Shark
Lights out, darkened park

Complacency is what we’ve got
Orcas in the parking lot
Sea Lions you can’t see
Waters of turbidity

Stop the madness shut them down
Mighty orca’s not your clown
Marineland, Seaquarium
Seaworld Sanitarium

Write a letter, demonstrate
Stand outside of Seaworld’s gate
Their time is coming, they will fall
Free the orcas, free them all

joey racano

The drama continues to unfold in Antibes France, at Marineland, largest marine park in Europe. The park owners ignored the warning in 2011 when they were hit by a major flood, and re-built the park, even adding new buildings that served to funnel the storm surge waters in from the ocean when the hurricane hit last week. The entire park was inundated, with 90% mortality being reported by activists fighting their way around a total press blackout.

http://m.nicematin.com/…/deces-de-lorque-valentin-a-marinel…

Wilkie and Keijo in 2014:

Valentin has already died in a tank of filth and mud, and now there are unconfirmed reports that keijo has died as well, with Wilkie’s condition deteriorating. According to french activists, the crane pictured was rented and is being used to move the orca bodies to a secret location for low-key necropsies.

Obviously this was a preventable tragedy, and a crime against nature, and it has grave implications for the Seaworld tank expansion in San Diego. How could Seaworld San Diego protect their captive orcas from such a storm driven surge? The answer is simple- they couldn’t.

Stand by for updates.

RIP Valentin, Freya, Keijo

From today a brand new start
Don’t make dolphins come to you
See them in the ocean blue

Fish Head Stew

Sneaky Sperm Whale

Sneaky Sperm Whale

Fish Head Stew

Everybody cry for the stripper of the sea
Feeling so entitled to his fishing industry
Now he has to find another way to stay afloat
Rightful owner started fishing underneath his boat

How did all the codfish ever just belong to you?
Stripping bare the ocean isn’t very nice to do
Now the rightful owners come to make you pay your due
Please enjoy the fish heads, maybe you can make a stew!

Everybody cry for the fishing nets and gear
Whales are bending hooks and it’s increasing every year
50 tonnes of whale and they’re coming here to teach
Notice all the sea lions up starving on the beach

Everybody cry for the empty-handed kid
Fishing out the oceans leaving jellyfish and squid
You can make a chowder from the bait that’s in your pail
School is now in session and your teacher is a whale!

The Fish, the Fry and the Whale

Sunday, January 25th, 2015
Free the Orcas!

Free the Orcas!

The Fish the Fry and the Whale

The fish, the fry and the whale
Fortunes entwined at the tail
Heartless captivity slammed
River of sadness be dammed

The tiniest fish is the smelt
Incredible fate she’s been dealt
Endowed by the courts with great powers
To heal watersheds within hours

For NOAA, the message is clear
Move boldly ahead without fear
Give the Endangered priority
And resident orcas seniority

Seventy Eight are what’s left
After four decades of theft
Tell whale prisons run by pathetics
We need Lolitas genetics!

NOAA must not be complacent
Restore the Columbia Basin
The watershed needs King Chinook
And the sea needs the orcas you took!

joey racano

Everything NOAA needs to know to make this decision is right here in black and white: Lolita must go free.

“Supreme Court leaves in place a longstanding ruling that the Endangered Species Act requires federal agencies to consider the preservation of all endangered species their highest priority.”

Thousands March for Lolita in Miami, Elsewhere

Sunday, January 18th, 2015
Thousands March on Miami Seaquarium

Thousands March on Miami Seaquarium

Thousands Rise for Freedom

‘Freedom, let your sweet bell ring
Orcas haven’t done a thing
Only fools would want to cage
The greatest predator of our age’

joey racano

“Lolita is a southern Orca who was captured 44 years ago in Puget Sound. She is part of an endangered species that is in vital need of naturally reproducing. January 17 is a day when humans will meet near her holding tank to demand that she be returned to her waters where her genes will help the species recover. She is an intelligent, social, family oriented animal who has been calling to her family for decades. It is time to reunite her with her family. It is the kind and humane thing to do.”
-David Georgi, professor emeritus

Marches were also held in Seattle, Las Vegas, San Diego, Colorado and in London, all demanding freedom for orcas and for and end to the slaughter of dolphins at Tajji, Japan.
