SANTA’S BOZO OF THE YEAR FOR 2015!

Dec/ 15, 2026  By Jack Jodell.  

My computer is still down, and I continue to care for my infirm 93 year old father, but today I stole away to my public library to make this posting. I will hopefully return tregularly sometime after first of the year.

Santa was very disappointed at the caliber of the 2016 GOP presidential contenders, so he almost decided to forego naming a Bpzo of the Year this year. But in the end, he finally decided to give the award to the biggest, most smug trump..bombastic Bozo in the history of this award: DONALD TRUMP. This bellicose Chump is so off the wall with his arrogance, conceit, and insulting, racist, nonsensical policy platforms that Santa has decided to stick him in solitary confinement for one solid year. That’s right, Donald: for one full year, NOBODY will be able to hear you speak, and no reporters will come by to interview you… AWWWW – if only this could really come true!

THIS CONSERVATIVE CONGRESS IS WAY OFF BASE!

Oct.8, 2015  By Jack Jodell.

The graphic at bottom, taken from a recent Democratic Underground.com blog, illustrates perfectly how misdirected our Tea Party-infested, Republican Party-controlled Congress’s priorities are. It also shows why this destructive and woefully misguided party must be stripped of Congressional control and prevented from occupying the White House after the 2016 elections. They have had control of Congress since January, 2011, and have done nothing to benefit the lives of ordinary working Americans – they have been on the wrong side of every issue, have obstructed all efforts to pass good, beneficial, and sorely-needed legislation like gun safety measures and infrastructure repair, and have failed to stem the tide of both our growing wealth disparity crisis and climate change. Instead, their priorities have included over 50 meaningless votes to repeal the Affordable Care Act, running time-wasting and wholly non-productive Benghazi and Clinton email investigations, attempting to enact ridiculous voter-suppression laws, scheming to pass further unneeded tax cuts for the wealthy (while simultaneously trying to increase spending for an already over-bloated military/industrial complex), and opposing any and all efforts to pass even one further gun-safety measure.  They (along with equally misguided corporatist Democrats) have even voted NO TPPSTOP TPPin favor of giving the HORRIBLE Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement “fast track” status, meaning that it must be adopted without congressional debate on any of uts provisions by a mere up or down vote! How any party that claims to be so protective of our national security can turn around and be so cavalier about the very real possibility of foreign corporations obtaining the power to sue this country and overturn any of its laws which may possibly threaten that corporation’s future anticipated profits is WAY off base!  These time and money-wasting bandits do not deserve congressional power any longer! Look at this below and then resolve to throw these bastards out of office in November of 2016!     

GOP NONSENSE

Think about it, friends: are you getting your money’s worth (at roughly $175,000 per Congressperson per year) out of this Tea Party-infested, Republican Party-controlled Congress? Certainly NOT! :-(

Why John Boehner Tripped and Fell

Oct. 5, 2015   By Jack Jodell (in association with BURR DEMING of Fair And UNbalanced.Com – see my Blogroll in the lower right – hand column). 

Greetings to all of you on this first Monday of October! It has been an incredible past 12 days, with the Pope visiting our country and gently spanking the Tea Party-infested, reactionary Republicans for their errant bawling bonerstands on immigration, the military/industrial complex, climate change, and ignoring and exploiting the poor while further enriching the wealthy. But the biggest shocker was John Boehner’s surprising announcement that he was resigning as Speaker of the House and will be leaving Congress altogether at the end of this month. His announcement immediately led to pundit speculation as to how and why this occurred.

YOGIIn today’s post, our podcaster extraordinaire BURR DEMING analyzes this shocking development and draws upon the wisdom of the late great New York Yankees catcher Yogi Berra to reach an amazingly simple yet very true conclusion. You will be amazed by this.

BURR!

 

Burr tells us, “Pundits and politicians argue about John Boehner’s success or failure. Pretty much all of them have uit wrong…”

THE POPE HITS IT OUTTA THE PARK!

Oct. 1. 2015  By Jack Jodell.  

POPE“If politics must truly be at the service of the human person, it follows that it cannot be a slave to the economy and finance. Politics is, instead, an expression of our compelling need to live as one, in order to build as one the greatest common good: that of a community which sacrifices particular interests in order to share, in justice and peace, its goods, its interests, its social life. I do not underestimate the difficulty that this involves, but I encourage you in this effort.”
Pope Francis – 

“All of us benefit from remembering our past. A people which remembers does not repeat past errors; instead, it looks with confidence to the challenges of the present and the future…”
– Pope Francis –  

“The International Financial Agencies should care for the sustainable development of countries and should ensure that they are not subjected to oppressive lending systems which, far from promoting progress, subject people to mechanisms which generate greater poverty, exclusion and dependence.”
– Pope Francis –  

“The work of the United Nations, according to the principles set forth in the preamble and the first articles of its founding charter, can be seen as the development and promotion of the rule of law, based on the realisation that justice is an essential condition for achieving the ideal of universal fraternity. In this context, it is helpful to recall that the limitation of power is an idea implicit in the concept of law itself. To give to each his own, to cite the classic definition of justice, means that no human individual or group can consider itself absolute, permitted to bypass the dignity and the rights of other individuals or their social groupings.”
– Pope Francis –      

Pope Francis ” The effective distribution of power (political, economic, defence-related, technological, etc.) among a plurality of subjects, and the creation of a juridical system for regulating claims and interests, are one concrete way of limiting power. Yet today’s world presents us with many false rights and – at the same time – broad sectors which are vulnerable, victims of power badly exercised: for example, the natural environment and the vast ranks of the excluded. These sectors are closely interconnected and made increasingly fragile by dominant political and economic relationships. That is why their rights must be forcefully affirmed, by working to protect the environment and by putting an end to exclusion.”  
– Pope Francis –

“First, it must be stated that a true “right of the environment” does exist, for two reasons. First, because we human beings are part of the environment. We live in communion with it, since the environment itself entails ethical limits which human activity must acknowledge and respect. Man, for all his remarkable gifts, which “are signs of a uniqueness which transcends the spheres of physics and biology” (Laudato Si’, 81), is at the same time a part of these spheres. He possesses a body shaped by physical, chemical and biological elements, and can only survive and develop if the ecological environment is favourable. Any harm done to the environment, therefore, is harm done to humanity.

Second, because every creature, particularly a living creature, has an intrinsic value, in its existence, its life, its beauty and its interdependence with other creatures. We Christians, together with the other monotheistic religions, believe that the universe is the fruit of a loving decision by the Creator, who permits man respectfully to use creation for the good of his fellow men and for the glory of the Creator; he is not authorised to abuse it, much less to destroy it. In all religions, the environment is a fundamental good.”
– Pope Francis –  

francis issuing“The misuse and destruction of the environment are also accompanied by a relentless process of exclusion. In effect, a selfish and boundless thirst for power and material prosperity leads both to the misuse of available natural resources and to the exclusion of the weak and disadvantaged, either because they are differently abled (handicapped), or because they lack adequate information and technical expertise, or are incapable of decisive political action.

Economic and social exclusion is a complete denial of human fraternity and a grave offence against human rights and the environment. The poorest are those who suffer most from such offences, for three serious reasons: they are cast off by society, forced to live off what is discarded and suffer unjustly from the abuse of the environment. They are part of today’s widespread and quietly growing ‘culture of waste’.

The dramatic reality this whole situation of exclusion and inequality, with its evident effects, has led me, in union with the entire Christian people and many others, to take stock of my grave responsibility in this regard and to speak out, together with all those who are seeking urgently-needed and effective solutions. The adoption of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development at the World Summit, which opens today, is an important sign of hope. I am similarly confident that the Paris Conference on Climatic Change will secure fundamental and effective agreements.”
– Pope Francis –  

“Our world demands of all government leaders a will which is effective, practical and constant, concrete steps and immediate measures for preserving and improving the natural environment and thus putting an end as quickly as possible to the phenomenon of social and economic exclusion, with its baneful consequences: human trafficking, the marketing of human organs and tissues, the sexual exploitation of boys and girls, slave labour, including prostitution, the drug and weapons trade, terrorism and international organised crime. Such is the magnitude of these situations and their toll in innocent lives, that we must avoid every temptation to fall into a declarationist nominalism which would assuage our consciences. We need to ensure that our institutions are truly effective in the struggle against all these scourges.

The number and complexity of the problems require that we possess technical instruments of verification. But this involves two risks. We can rest content with the bureaucratic exercise of drawing up long lists of good proposals – goals, objectives and statistical indicators – or we can think that a single theoretical and aprioristic solution will provide an answer to all the challenges.   

It must never be forgotten that political and economic activity is only effective when it is understood as a prudential activity, guided by a perennial concept of justice and constantly conscious of the fact that, above and beyond our plans and programmes, we are dealing with real men and women who live, struggle and suffer, and are often forced to live in great poverty, deprived of all rights.

To enable these real men and women to escape from extreme poverty, we must allow them to be dignified agents of their own destiny. Integral human development and the full exercise of human dignity cannot be imposed. They must be built up and allowed to unfold for each individual, for every family, in communion with others, and in a right relationship with all those areas in which human social life develops – friends, communities, towns and cities, schools, businesses and unions, provinces, nations, etc…”  
– Pope Francis –

FRANCIS 3My faith in Pope Francis was renewed when I heard him address Congress a few short days ago. It was even strengthened, and grew exponentially, when I heard him address the whole world through the United Nations the very next day. This is a most remarkable man who has great intellect and reasoning power. He speaks truth and concern for the entire planet. This is a genuine man, who is not compromised in the least by greedy special interests or paranoid ideologues. Regardless of the flak certain very cynical and deluded  far-right pundits have given him, his words and concerns ring true and should be listened to by all. He has proven himself to be a very astute observer of human activities and behavior, and his judgments and pronouncements in most areas are sound and should be followed. Long live Pope Francis, and may his influence inside and outside of the Catholic Church continue to grow!

Base Hatred and Conservatives

Sept. 28, 2015    By Jack Jodell (in association with BURR DEMING of Fair And UNbalanced.Com – see my Blogroll in the lower right – hand column).

Happy last Monday of the month, everybody.  The modern-day, Tea Party-infested reactionary Republican Party is seemingly obsessed with conspiracy theories. From Benghazi to Hillary’s emails, from the Iran nuclear agreement to the Affordable Care Act to climate change, they see many a conspiracy where none actually exists. This has always been the case with conservatives, who tend to be somewhat paranoid by nature. In the early 1950s, they saw nonexistent communists under every bed; 50 years later they were seeing radical Islamic terrorists  everywhere, even at baseball stadiums.

In today’s podcast, our podcaster extraordinaire  Burr Deming examines this propensity of conservatives, and takes us back to 1972 and the shooting of conservative presidential candidate George Wallace to illustrate how dirty tricks Republican President Dick Nixon and his cohorts deliberately tried to pin the shooting on followers of prominent liberal Democrats. Nixon knew that if he succeeded in his phony politicization of this horrible shooting, he would cynically eventually benefit at the polls. You know: a classic case of the ends justifying the means. Just as today’s conservatives are attempting to do with nearly every political issue. Burr makes a quite valid comparison between then and now…

BURR!

In Burr’s own words, Our species has always faced the temptation of drawing lines of hatred. We have often changed our vision of those on the other side of those lines from that of human beings into that of abstractions, into ‘them.’ It is the logic embraced by much of what has come to be called ‘the base’…the logic of blood. We know they would kill us, because we would kill them.  

So we must get rid of them first.”

GREAT WORDS FROM A PAIR I TRULY ADMIRE!

Sept. 24, 2015  By Jack Jodell (with text mainly from an email sent me by a man I greatly admire).

FRANCISPope Francis spoke brilliantly at the White House and later before his U.S. Bishops yesterday, and will address Congress today. So far, he has spoken of fairness, economic and environmental justice, co..on sense, and common decency. I will offer a review of his visit here soon, at a later date. He is definitely  one of today’s public figures whom I admire the very most. But a few days before his visit, I received an email from another gentleman which I am reprinting for you below. His identity will be revealed at the end of that email. I am amazed at how two very different men of different faiths can actually be relating virtually much the same message!  

Dated Saturday, Sept. 18, 2015, the email read as follows:
“…
Earlier this week I spoke at Liberty University. For those of you who do not know, Liberty University is a deeply religious institution. It is a school which tries to understand the meaning of morality and the words of the Bible, within the context of a very complicated modern world. It was founded by the Reverend Jerry Falwell, and the vast majority of people at Liberty strongly disagree with me, and perhaps you, about abortion, marriage equality, and other issues.

You might be asking yourself, ‘Why on earth would __________ go there?’  It is a fair question within the context of our modern politics.

I spoke at Liberty University because I believe that it is important for those with different views in our country to engage in civil discourse – not just to shout at each other or make fun of each other.

It is very easy for those in politics to talk to those who agree with us – and I do that every day. It is harder, but not less important, to try and communicate with those who do not agree with us and see where, if possible, we can find common ground. In other words, to reach out of our zone of comfort.  

The message I gave at Liberty University is that the moral choice is to fight income inequality, and that the just thing to do is to work to make our society more fair. Below are some of my remarks to Liberty from the video above, but I think it is important to share them with you here as well so that you can share with others how I approach these issues.

I am far, far from a perfect human being, but I am motivated by a vision which exists in all of the great religions – Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Buddhism and others – and which is so beautifully and clearly stated in Matthew 7:12. ‘So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the prophets.’ The Golden Rule. Do to others what you would have them do to you. Not very complicated.

I told the crowd at Liberty University that I understand that issues such as abortion and gay marriage are very important to them, and that we disagree on those issues. I get that. But there are other issues out there that are of enormous consequence to our country and the world and that maybe, just maybe, we don’t disagree on them. And maybe, just maybe, we can work together in trying to resolve them.

Amos 5:24, ‘But let justice roll on like a river, righteousness like a never-failing stream!’

Justice. Treating others the way we would like to be treated. Treating all people with dignity and respect.

It would, I think, be hard for anyone in that room where I spoke to make the case that the United States today is a ‘just’ society or anything resembling a just society.

In America today there is massive injustice in terms of income and wealth inequality. Injustice is rampant. We live in the wealthiest country in the history of the world but most Americans don’t know that because almost all of that wealth and income is going to the top one percent. We are living at a time where a handful of people have wealth beyond comprehension – huge yachts, jet planes, tens of billions of dollars, more money than they could spend in a thousand lifetimes. But at the same time, millions of people are struggling to feed their families or put a roof over their heads or find the money to go to a doctor.

When we talk about morality and when we talk about justice, we have to understand that there is no justice when the top one-tenth of one percent own almost as much wealth as the bottom 90 percent. There is no justice when all over this country people are working long hours for abysmally low wages, $7.25 an hour or $8 an hour, while 58 percent of all new income being created today goes to the top one percent.

There is no justice when, in recent years, we have seen a proliferation of millionaires and billionaires while, at the same time, the United States has the highest rate of childhood poverty in the industrialized world. How can we talk about morality when we turn our backs on the children of this country? Twenty percent of the children in this country live in poverty and that includes 40 percent of African American children. There is no justice when, in the wealthiest country in the history of the world, children in our country go to bed hungry.

There is no justice when the 15 wealthiest people in this country saw their wealth increase by $170 billion dollars in the last two years. That is more wealth, acquired in a two-year period, than is owned by the bottom 130 million Americans. And while the very rich become much richer, millions of families have no savings at all and struggle every week just to stay alive economically, and the elderly and disabled wonder how they stay warm in the winter. That is not justice. That is a rigged economy designed by the wealthiest people in this country to benefit the wealthiest people in this country at the expense of everyone else.

There is no justice when thousands of people in America die each year because they don’t have health insurance and don’t get to a doctor when they should, or when elderly people are forced to choose between food or medicine because our citizens pay the highest prices in the world for prescription drugs. That is not justice. That is not morality. That is simply an indication that we are the only major country on earth that does not guarantee health care for all as a right.

There is no justice when low-income and working-class mothers are forced to separate from their babies one or two weeks after birth and go back to work because we are the only major country on earth that does not have a paid family and medical leave policy. That is not justice. That is an attack on family values that everyone should be appalled at.

There is no justice in our country when youth unemployment exists at tragic levels – with 51 percent of African American high school kids unemployed or underemployed. No. We apparently do not have the funds to provide jobs or educational opportunities for our young people but we sure do have the money to throw them into jails. Today, the United States has more people in jail than any other country on earth, and many are serving time in inhumane conditions. That is not justice. That is the destruction of human life.

I am not a theologian or an expert on the Bible or a Catholic. I am just a U.S. senator from the small state of Vermont. But I agree with Pope Francis when he says: ‘The current financial crisis… originated in a profound human crisis: the denial of the primacy of the human person! We have created new idols. The worship of the ancient golden calf has returned in a new and ruthless guise in the idolatry of money and the dictatorship of an impersonal economy lacking a truly human purpose.’

He also states: ‘There is a need for financial reform along ethical lines that would produce in its turn an economic reform to benefit everyone. Money has to serve, not to rule.’

In his view, and I agree with him, we are living in a nation and in a world which worships the acquisition of money and great wealth, but which turns its back on those in need. And that must end. We need to move toward an economy which works for all, and not just the few.

Throughout human history there has been endless discussion and debate about the meaning of justice and the meaning of morality. I hope that by getting out of my comfort zone and speaking with the students at Liberty University that I can be a part of a dialogue with people who might not agree with us. I hope that some of them conclude that if we strive toward morality and toward justice, that it is imperative that we have the courage to stand with the poor and working people of our country.

In solidarity,

Bernie Sanders”
