2032: Good Luck to the Crew

In the year of our lord twenty thirty
Elections have gotten down and dirty
But the people have risen and chosen wisely
Which is why we’re attacked, in fact, precisely

Tulsi Gabbard and VP Jill Stein
After 8 years of Trump it was water to wine
They started to bring the USA back to sanity
Every step of the way sabatogued by Sean Hannity

The waters ran red, the sky she ran brown
No bee pollination no grass on the ground
No herds on the plains, no super-speed trains
Trump and his inbreds took all of our gains

The Democrats were too soft, the Republicans too hard
They had little substance, their policies lard
The women took over they pulled it off well
It didn’t take long ’till we climbed back from hell

Now though another election was looming
War drums within our own country were booming
Jets had gone rogue, overhead they were zooming
And out of the shadows came orcs they’d been grooming

Here came the brotherhood to challenge the motherhood
Swat teams from bad dreams oppressing the neighborhood

Militarization brought on Polarization with nary a free speech zone left in our nation

The firemen, fishermen, foundrymen, soldiermen
Hated the hippies and all they were better then

Surrounded the whitehouse with no need for speakers
And only one mission- to wipe out the leakers

The place was on fire, the moment was dire
The whitehouse turned into a funeral pyre

We landed a chopper sent by the resistance
Got Tulsi and Jill buckled in by insistance

We flew them away to the cave of John Connor
Seconds before they would both be a goner

And now it’s election day twenty thirty Two
There’s no more that Tulsi and Jill Stein can do

With term limits here It’s been left up to you
The place is surrounded- good luck to the crew!

Rock the Ballot Box

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

Fear the Bern -Election Update III

Election 2016 Update III

Election 2016 Update III

Fear the Bern

(Election 2016 Update III)

Exit polls revealed many democratic voters arrived at their polling places and immediately re-registered republican for 5 years in order to vote against Donald Trump. Such was their fear. Or was it a clever tactic by the right wing Hillary Rodham Clinton campaign, whose answer to the Bernie Sanders ‘yes we can’ insurgency is a hopeless, ‘no we can’t.’ In either case, it didn’t work.

The election and nominations are not yet a foregone conclusion, but the question still remains, ‘is the Donald Trump candidacy a ruse thought out by Karl Rove, Dick Cheney and other architects of a New American Century, meant to scare daylights out of democrats driving even progressives toward Hillary Rodham Clinton? If so, it is a ruse that has gotten way out of their control. ‘The Donald’ as it were, probably was all for team ball at the start- until the low IQ of dumbed-down America hoisted him up on their shoulders like Atahualpa. And once you taste the power of the throne, you never go back, even if back means being a reality show billionaire-on-paper.

And wither the idealistic Sanders campaign? Mostly dazed and confused this post-primary election Wednesday morning, as centrist democrats voted their fears and went with Monsanto lawyer, war monger, fracking and bank advocate Hillary Clinton. And don’t forget she brings back the cigar-wielding William Jefferson Clinton, and 30 years of entrenched quasi-right political machinery. Rest easy, America.

As sane people watch on in horror, biblical floods, storms, droughts, tornadoes, sea level rise, fracking-induced earthquakes have their way with the land sea and atmosphere with nary a United States Presidential candidate mentioning the environment as an issue except of course, Bernie Sanders and Green candidate Jill Stein. So the quandary before sane Americans is, what to do; where to go from here?’

That is where I may be of help.

1. Green Party: Stay the course and vote for one of our own qualified and altruistic candidates. Remember, the Greens have a huge advantage- our party is *international and *we don’t take corporate money.

2. Republicans: As ye sow, so shall ye reap. You created Donald Trump, and soon you may be licking his bootstraps in the latest version of 1939 National Socialism and then in hell forever after.

3. Progressive Democrats: Continue to feel the Bern. Full speed ahead and dam the torpedoes. The democrats will never change as long as they know you will still vote for them. Here is your chance to send them a message they will never forget- WRITE IN BERNIE SANDERS. If someone tells you about the ‘sore loser’ laws in some states where write ins won’t be counted, well who cares? It’s better than endorsing the oil-war, big pharma, log-the-last-forest status quo. Tell them to take their super delegates and shove them where the sun don’t shine.

4. Center-right Hillary Democrats: See #2.

State of the Union 2016

– by Joey Racano

Good evening ladies and gentlemen, members of the press, and friends around the world. We all know why I am here, but let me tell you why you are here with me. Because you are a problem solver, rather than a blame thrower, because you thirst not only for knowledge, but for truth, which is in short supply in the world of politics and policy.

The world has never been more volatile, the future more uncertain. But the issues have never been more clear cut and their answers never more handy for those with the courage to reach out for them, and each other. So thank you for reaching out alongside me, for a better world and a better way.

It’s no secret that American pop culture is steeped in the flashy, gimmicky world of entertainment and bling. But we can’tsolve the problem of trillion dollar oil wars and the hurricanes of loss they bring, by raising children on violent video games with names like Warcraft, Call of Duty, and Boom Beach.

Nor can we solve the problem of Syrian refugees by bombing the sovereign nation they are fleeing.

And we can’t solve the problem of terror by tightening borders rather than improving our foreign policy.

Changing the world isn’t going to be easy, but it is going to be necessary.

And such change is even more difficult stemming from the fact that we have been hampered right out of the starting gate by stolen presidential elections, energy policies written by oil companies whose effect on the Gulf of Mexico has been anything but shrimp and who now pour methane by the cubic mile into our very neighborhoods at Porter Ranch.

Air Quality Control Districts have to be sued for siding with fossil fuel polluters.

Porter Ranch is still operating as thousands of families flee their homes in California.

A group of armed terrorists can occupy an Oregon Wildlife Refuge on behalf of a fringe group of ranchers loggers and miners, while peaceful occupy wall street demonstrators were forcibly removed from public parks. This all shows the stranglehold fossil fuel has on the throat of America.

Many will cringe when confronted by just how far it’s gone.

Recently, some 160 people were killed in a terrorist attack at a concert hall in Paris France. Was this simply an astounding coincidence, happening at the same time a string of music concerts was to begin around the world on every continent, all aimed at bringing public attention to the Paris Climate Summit the following week, with Pope Francis himself directing a billion christians to kick the fossil fuel habit?

After all, climate action of this magnitude is surely viewed by the CIA as a threat to the oil economy, and so a threat to the national security of the United States.

With names like Elton John, Bon Jovi and many others, the concerts were to be simulcast for 24 hours from Sydney, Paris, Rio, New York, Bejiing and elsewhere, and yet, because of the timing of the terror attack in Paris, all talk of the climate was supplanted in the news by all things terroristic.

To this day, we have heard little to nothing about the summit, the climate, or the concerts. The news has instead been a steady parade of killings, turbines, carbines and calls for gun control. This is a public relations gambit called ‘transference’, and I believe those fossil fuel industries and their CIA bodyguards played more than a supporting role.

As possibly the world’s only candidate -or even person- who is both a card carrying member of PETA and of the NRA, I know that disarming the public must never be allowed without disarming the military, the police, the CIA, FBI, National Guard, DHS, and the Clive Bundy hole-in-the-wall gang first.

If we maintain our second amendment right, we stand a chance of maintain everything else. Don’t give in to fear, don’t give in to fossil fuel, and don’t give in to false prophets who try to Trump the privacy, freedom and diversity all Americans hold dear.

Thank you for your time, bless you all, and please take a good look at the candidates this time ’round. Something’s Berning and I think it’s something good.

Good night.

State of the Union Address 2015
-by Joseph Racano

Thank you.

I thank you very much and now I ask that you please be seated.

2015 and its predecessor were amazing years in history as is well known by all who shared them, not only in our great nation but those having done so in countries abroad as well.

We watched live-wire jetliners vanish without a trace, banksters being rescued and genocidal dogmatics elevated to sainthood. In America, we endured the offhand propensity for poorly trained and rarely prosecuted law enforcement personnel to address racial tensions with the barrel of their service revolvers.

We continue to label people ‘aliens’, though they come from the same planet we do.

Perhaps it would be wise for us to envision what might come next if indeed we were all made to speak the same language. The next step could be to all wear the same shoes, wear the same ties, drive the same cars, and even hold the same opinions. In Paris, proponents of such extreme monoculture recently attempted to silence freedom of expression and diversity with terror tactics. In a sign of our troubled times, authorities then handed instant victory to these terrorists by immediately arresting scores of people afterward who voiced any support for their cause, however misguided their tactics.

Ask yourself, what is the fate for those who choose not to be Charlie Hebdo? A dragonfly-sized drone on the windowsill, eavesdropping on their morning coffee, or maybe a larger one dropping bombs on their wedding reception? It is no longer enough to agree to disagree. We must be willing to defend those with whom we disagree, and do so without fear of being labeled an enemy combatant.

In Guantanamo, a long-held prisoner has written a soon-to-be-released book about his time in that shameful, still open American torture chamber. It has been heavily redacted. One wonders if he will go on a book tour after being tortured in prison, and will his torturer Dick Cheney go to prison after completing his book tour.

With the republicans now firmly in control of the United State Senate, and their democratic counterparts keeping them there by disenfranchising their own voter base, it is unlikely a new world paradigm is on the horizon to replace the new world order.

And without that paradigm, America, along with the rest of the world, can only continue our slide into the abyss of a not-so-brave new world, one without glaciers, fresh air, truth, or freedom.

Thank you and have a good evening!
