What, To The Amerikkkan Slave, Is YOUR 4th Of July? – Frederick Douglass

Fuck you! And fuck YOUR 4th of July, you filthy, depraved, debased, white-assed motherfuckers!

What, to the American slave, is your 4th of July? I answer; a day that reveals to him, more than all other days in the year, the gross injustice and cruelty to which he is the constant victim. To him, your celebration is a sham; your boasted liberty, an unholy license; your national greatness, swelling vanity; your sounds of rejoicing are empty and heartless; your denunciation of tyrants, brass fronted impudence; your shouts of liberty and equality, hollow mockery; your prayers and hymns, your sermons and thanksgivings, with all your religious parade and solemnity, are, to Him, mere bombast, fraud, deception, impiety, and hypocrisy-a thin veil to cover up crimes which would disgrace a nation of savages. There is not a nation on the earth guilty of practices more shocking and bloody than are the people of the United States, at this very hour.

Go where you may, search where you will, roam through all the monarchies and despotisms of the Old World, travel through South America, search out every abuse, and when you have found the last, lay your facts by the side of the everyday practices of this nation, and you will say with me, that, for revolting barbarity and shameless hypocrisy, America reigns without a rival.

Take the American slave-trade, which we are told by the papers, is especially prosperous just now. Ex-Senator Benton tells us that the price of men was never higher than now. He mentions the fact to show that slavery is in no danger. This trade is one of the peculiarities of American institutions. It is carried on in all the large towns and cities in one-half of this confederacy; and millions are pocketed every year by dealers in this horrid traffic. In several states this trade is a chief source of wealth. It is called (in contradistinction to the foreign slave-trade) “the internal slave-trade.” It is, probably, called so, too, in order to divert from it the horror with which the foreign slave-trade is contemplated. That trade has long since been denounced by this government as piracy. It has been denounced with burning words from the high places of the nation as an execrable traffic. To arrest it, to put an end to it, this nation keeps a squadron, at immense cost, on the coast of Africa. Everywhere, in this country, it is safe to speak of this foreign slave-trade as a most inhuman traffic, opposed alike to the Jaws of God and of man. The duty to extirpate and destroy it, is admitted even by our doctors of divinity. In order to put an end to it, some of these last have consented that their colored brethren (nominally free) should leave this country, and establish them selves on the western coast of Africa! It is, however, a notable fact that, while so much execration is poured out by Americans upon all those engaged in the foreign slave-trade, the men engaged in the slave-trade between the states pass with out condemnation, and their business is deemed honorable.

Your 4th of July is nothing! You sit somewhere waving a flag that has the blood of over a billion innocent people on it all because the premise for this country is based on a lie; a goddamn vicious lie! A country stolen from the Indians by SLAVE HOLDERS; vile white parasites that roamed the earth in search of continents to suck dry, people to enslave and make a profit off of and then turn around and tell bald faced lies about what was done, what is being done. Make claims that slavery ended by getting people to celebrate some Juneteenth bullshit when slavery only morphed into the FOR PROFIT PRISON INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX. No amendment ended slavery and you lying white trash parasites know this! And yet you pat yourselves on your goddamn depraved backs and laud one another all day and night about how fucking humanitarian and benevolent you are when you couldn’t even get next to those words without bursting into flames, you goddamn lousy hypocrites.

And this bears repeating!

Go where you may, search where you will, roam through all the monarchies and despotisms of the Old World, travel through South America, search out every abuse, and when you have found the last, lay your facts by the side of the everyday practices of this nation, and you will say with me, that, for revolting barbarity and shameless hypocrisy, America reigns without a rival.

“Revolting barbarity and shameless hypocrisy” is exactly what you white-assed motherfuckers are celebrating today! Take your goddamn bullshit and shove it up your pale white wide open assholes; all you sick and twisted, depraved, debased creatures. Me? Celebrate my continued enslavement at YOUR hands? Not fucking EVER! I spit on YOUR flag! I refuse to sing YOUR national anthem and I refuse to pledge allegiance to a goddamn rag that you fucking shits have raised in the name of theft, enslavement, brutality, torture, war, shackles, chains, destruction and death and that is why your shit is getting fucked up now because ALL the vicious and atrocious shit you’ve done and are still doing is coming home to roost all up your ass! California just experienced a 6.4 earthquake. Alaska is baking and is on fire. There is an alert over volcanic activity in Hawaii and pretty soon, there will be reports that more and worse happenings are taking place at Yellowstone. Your planting season is almost over and the majority of farmers couldn’t even plant half a field, much less enough to keep capitalism running smoothly. What’s not burning up is flooding and we have debased whites to thank for that shit and that is why you are going to reap the vicious and vile shit that you have sown. Yes indeed, celebrate the fact that as you celebrate, your shit is about to get fucked up, big time and there is not a goddamn thing that you can do to stop it. Your credit cards won’t save you. Your bloated bank accounts won’t save you. Your FICO score won’t save you. Nothing is going to save you because you debased shits, not a one of you is worth saving! You are now screeching about climate change and global warming and yet, you are still driving SUVs to the goddamn store and firing up the AC because it is hot as hell outside thanks to your white ass putting all of this shit into play. And now you want everyone else to have issues because of the shit you caused while you feel that you should get off scot-free. Well, that ain’t gonna fucking happen. You depraved white shits are going to be the first to get your shit, fried, toasted, oven roasted, flooded, lightning struck and some more shit because you have made damn sure that people who look like me have nothing to lose. So who the fuck is going to do the losing? Your fucking filthy white ass, that’s who. But you’re so damn stupid, you’re out celebrating the fact that your ass is about to get fucked up! Good! Don’t bother trying to see it coming because there will be NOT a goddamn thing that you can do about what’s coming for your sick, twisted white ass! I am going to love to see you get your fucking due!

So enjoy this day because the next fireworks display, I guarantee you are NOT going to get a thrill out of them! So eat your shit you call hot dogs. Sit back and enjoy a child’s sport on a baseball field. Kick back with a beer, but remember this, your good times are at an end! No amount of the shit you’ve stolen from others, no amount of the shit you’ve acquired off the backs of my ancestors is going to continue to cushion your vile, worthless white ass from what’s coming for you! Your time is up, you filthy pieces of shit! And I don’t mind going out just as long as I know that there is no way in hell that ANY white-assed motherfucker is going to be allowed to continue sucking air. And newsfuckingflash, your white debased ass is NOT going to escape the shit that you’ve got coming to you by you taking your depraved ass to Mars or the Moon or any damn where else. This is it for your ass! You ain’t going no goddamn where in an attempt to escape YOUR fate! HA! I’m laughing at you filthy white-assed motherfuckers! No one is buying your fake ass “you are humanitarian and benevolent” bullshit! TV ain’t enough these days to keep even the brain dead from knowing what your vile asses are up to. Ain’t nobody thinking about the whores and whoremongers of Hollywood. We don’t give a shit for your awards shows for your ability to act. That’s all you do anyway, is act; act like you’re fucking doing the world a favor as you fuck us over. We are awake, many of us as to how foul you white-assed motherfuckers are! And we are laughing at YOU! Every single time I see your white ass wailing because your shit’s been flooded out, I fucking laugh! Every single time I saw pictures of the Kilauea volcano’s lava flowing through your neighborhoods, covering YOUR shit you’d stolen from others, I laughed. When I saw the Midwest flooded out just a couple of weeks ago, I laughed. When I saw the wildfires in Paradise, CA, and elsewhere, I laughed. You own every goddamn thing and so you are the ones who are going to lose every goddamn thing and that is why I can laugh, that is why I get to laugh.

I didn’t go all around the world stealing everything that wasn’t nailed down. I didn’t go all around the world stealing and enslaving people. I didn’t go all around the world bombing people and destroying their countries. I didn’t go all around the world fucking people up while thinking that the shit I’ve done would never come home to roost all up my ass. That’s what you fucking debased whites did and are still doing. But your time is SO goddamn up, it ain’t even funny! So go ahead, celebrate while you still can because soon, you won’t even be able to do that much.

“What to the American slave is your 4th of July?” A day that celebrates the whites revolting barbarity and shameless hypocrisy, which America has always and will always reign without a rival! Fuck YOU Amerikkka and you whites know that I am saying, “Fuck YOU!” Now chow down on that, fucking leeches!

Your Ass Is Too Good For That Rag!

Black girl, you have known such brutality
from the slave fields to Jim Crow.
And yet they expect you to celebrate
what for you has been a hard row to hoe.

You are to display that racist American flag
and watch it wave over land you have tilled.
You have watched your mother and your father
work harder because they were unskilled.

Go sit outside and watch the fireworks display.
Put a couple of hot dogs on the grill.
Don’t forget to eat some apple pie
and then head for the baseball field.

Forget about all the horrors
that this nation has heaped upon you.
Don’t think of all the innocent people
who were killed by this red, white and blue.

Remember what this nation stands for.
And that brutality is sown in the flag.
They have watered down the truth of its history.
And your ass is too good for that rag!

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! I Simply Cannot Stop Laughing! BWAHAHAHAHAHA!

The scenes out of flood ravaged Amerikkka and the hand wringing ALL across Amerikkka these days has me literally rolling across the floor laughing and some more shit! Take a look at the new adventures in snorkeling.

No need to go to the Bahamas to go snorkeling, just put on your gear and head to the basement! HAHAHAHAHAHA!! I’m loving it!

Now MSN titled this one, ‘Horrible scenes:’ More rain threatens areas swamped by record floods in Central, Southern USA

There ain’t a goddamn thing horrible about that! Those people have THE best setup. How many of us can just put on snorkeling gear and dive in our basement as fish float around us even if we cannot really see them that well since the water is all brown? I suggest using a really high beam light to see the wonders of the rivers as you enjoy your snorkeling adventure right inside your homes. I mean, they do tell us to make the best of  ‘any’ situation and so, snorkeling would be a wonderful way to spend the day with family and friends especially seeing as there is no electricity since the outlets are all flooded.

Why spend so much time packing for a trip to the Bahamas or to Jamaica when you can experience much of what you intend on experiencing in those places, right at home? No need to pack a bunch of bikinis and swim trunks, flip flops and other beach attire. You don’t need to purchase a plane ticket or worry about airport shuttles and Customs officials, passports and crowded beaches. No one is going to ‘crowd’ you out in your own basement. That’s the joy of having lakefront property. If ever the lake overflows and decides that it wants to take up residence in your basement, you know how like the whites decided to ‘gentrify’ areas and take them over that were originally inhabited by Black people, why all you need do is grab your bikini, your snorkeling gear and get to enjoying you a nice dive.

No need to get to sniffling about the situation like this dude did.

In North Little Rock, which sits across the river from the capital city, officials went door-to-door Saturday to urge residents in about 150 homes near the river to consider leaving.

“We’ve lived here for 12 years. Never been like this,” said Larry Campbell as he packed up his belongings of his North Little Rock home into the back of a truck, according to KTHT-TV in Little Rock. “It’s tough. It’s really tough.”

“You have to just make a decision because you’re going to lose everything,” Campbell said as he choked back tears.

In Missouri, the swollen Missouri and Mississippi Rivers forced hundreds of roads to close and inundated homes and businesses.

In St. Louis, several hotels crowded with visitors for the Stanley Cup Final and Cardinals-Cubs baseball games were left without hot water Sunday after too much water overwhelmed a pump station.

Larry Campbell should not be “choking back tears” since he is the cause of climate change, global warming or whatever you want to call it. Larry Campbell is the reason why he is “choking back tears” because he is one of those whites who think that they are always right. Driving big trucks like Larry Campbell is using to haul his precious possessions to higher ground is why Larry Campbell and many more Larry Campbells are going to be “choking back tears.” Yeah! Choke back those tears because those who look like you set this shit in motion and now you are choking back tears over the loss of what is SO goddamn important to you; fucking possessions. Because those possessions of whites are THE essence of what they are; their status symbol. Nothing else matters. That’s why Larry Campbell is “choking back tears.” But is he even giving a thought that the reason behind his need to “choke back tears” is because he has to drive a damn big ass truck?! He has to have a big, huge, gigantic house sitting right beside the river that takes so goddamn much electricity to power, it ain’t even funny. He has every device to make his life easy that anyone could imagine. And to drag all that useless shit back to his McMansion sits a big, huge, gigantic truck  that is the cause of why the storm systems we are experiencing are much more powerful and more frequent than they have ever been. And if you  take a look at the map of the U.S. as it pertains to flooded areas, you will find that there are, indeed, many, many, many Larry Campbells out there “choking back tears.”

And once again, thanks to Trump’s campaign slogan, “Make AmeriKKKa Great Again!” Amerikkka is looking SO great when it comes to flash floods, flash flood warnings and watches ALL across this SO great looking AmeriKKKA!

To those of you around the world who read this blog, pretty soon now, you won’t have to worry about this sorry ass shithole fucking with you because it’ll be underwater. We shall ALL have drowned and even though congress has just passed a Disaster Relief Bill, you can bet your sweet ass that it is too little, too late! This Titanic is sinking like a stone. When whites start “choking back tears” because they have to throw a few items of ‘value’ in the back of a truck, shit ain’t so ‘great’. When whites can go snorkeling in the basement of their homes, shit ain’t so ‘great’. When whites lakefront homes are now “In The Lake Homes,” shit ain’t so ‘great’. These motherfuckers are over here wailing, moaning and screeching to ALL and sundry! This shit ain’t supposed  to happen to them. This shit is for everyone else to deal with because whites were supposed to have seen to it that only the Maoris of New Zealand got fucked up, that the Aborigines of Australia got fucked up, that the Indians, indigenous to this fucked up country they named AmeriKKKa would get fucked up, that the Polynesian people would get fucked up and they did, by the whites. But you see, the whites never imagined in their wildest dreams that they were just too dumb to see that what they had put into play, the world over, would eventually get around to fucking up their skank asses!

You see, that shit was not supposed to happen because where the fuck are they going to go? Back to the moon? The never went there in the first goddamn place. To Mars? Fuck if your white ass is going to make it to Mars or any damn where else to turn it into the cesspool you’ve turned this planet into what with your toxic EVERY goddamn thing from food  to weed killer to atomic weapons to medicine and your so-called technological advances. Where the fuck have they gotten you? Whatever the whites produce is going to be destroyed, in fact, it IS being destroyed and they ain’t hardly happy about that. But I am, hence the title of this blog! I am loving it!

“Mother Nature, keep doing YOUR thing!”

That was suppose to pass for a levee? No wonder it was breached! HAHAHAHAHA!!

It is quite apparent that the whites attempts at keeping Mother Nature ‘in check’ is NOT working! And another round goes to Mother Nature! LMAO!!!!!!! Arkansas, you got a breach!!! HAHAHAHAHA!! I had swore off champagne, but this is totally ‘toast’ worthy, especially when whites are “choking back tears” as they fill their pickup trucks with their precious possessions that mean more to them than life itself! Pack motherfuckers! Pack! “Where you gonna go when the river comes for you?” Mother Nature wants to gentrify the whites shit in order to bring in water. LMAO!!!! Damn! I cannot wait until the hurricanes hit! I gotta stop because I’ve got just too many tears of laughter in my eyes! What comes around, goes around!! Now get ta steppin’!

 

 

 

Thanks To ‘Whites’ Bringing Us Climate Change, Black Folks, It Is Time To Get Back To A Sense Of Community

The headlines out today do not bode well for mass food production thanks to climate change or global warming or whatever you want to call it, which was brought to us via the whites, who also came up with the not so bright idea of mass food production seeing as how food recalls are in the news daily. The headlines are about farmers who are impotent as a direct result of climate change since the recent historic flooding events in the Midwest has ground planting to a halt, as well as the delivery of products via the Mississippi River.

Midwest farmers in limbo as flooding halts shipping along Mississippi River

The Mississippi River is the key shipping artery for agriculture, inputs to manufacturing, chemicals, energy products, construction and building materials that are used domestically and for export to the world market through the Gulf of Mexico.

But there’s not much water traffic this spring season due to historic flooding from snow melt and rain in America’s heartland. Record-breaking rainfall has caused flooding along the Mississippi River and as a result, the river is basically closed for business.

So thanks to Mother Nature fucking white folks shit up since they are no damn good anyway, food prices are soaring and that is a good thing since this should drive many folks to go back to planting community gardens and fending for themselves. We were much healthier when we grew our own food because what happened when food became mass produced? GMO shit! Roundup, which contains a known carcinogen, is sprayed every damn where to stop a goddamn weed from growing when in my childhood, we merely bent our backs over the fields of vegetables and pulled the weeds up by the root, weekly and we didn’t suffer for it. We received much needed Vitamin D from the sun while getting great exercise and healthy foods. Mass food production destroyed all of that. And now look at us; morbidly obese couch potatoes who stare down at a damn phone while munching down on garbage passing for food that was delivered by Uber. Seriously???!!!

But since we don’t have the sense god gave a goat, Mother Nature to the rescue AGAIN!!! I hope Mother Nature continues to, essentially, ground capitalism to a halt and MAKE people get up off their obese ass and plant their own vegetables. Look up from those goddamn phones and realize what is truly important and newsflash! What’s NOT important is all your fucking Apps on that goddamn smartphone that’s taken the place of your damn brain. And so since farmers are “in limbo,” they are going to stay in limbo because climate change ain’t going nowhere. So that means, either get up off your big ass and plant your own vegetables or head to the store with your $25 in food stamps since the Trump Administration has cut the hell out of food stamp benefits and then dig deep inside your pockets or purses and get to shoveling money across the counter to pay for the massive increase in prices for garbage that shouldn’t even be served to a cockroach, Trump supporters since many of you are still devoted to that lump of orange clay that’s not giving a damn about your plight.

You can sit somewhere on your stupid ass and pretend that this is all just going to right itself and things will be back to normal in no time flat all you want, but the writing is on the wall for all to see; climate change is here to stay and things are only going to get worse from here. Don’t believe it? Here is some more bad news for those of you who are not into farming for yourselves or doing much of anything else for yourselves, for that matter.

The Hurricane Season Prediction for 2019 Is Similar to Last Year. That’s Bad News

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is predicting a “near-normal” hurricane season in 2019, with between two and four major hurricanes expected. However, only two major hurricanes hit in 2018, but both made direct strikes on the United States, causing billions of dollars in damage and claiming dozens of lives.

Gerry Bell, NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center lead hurricane forecaster, emphasized Thursday that communities should take the hurricane season seriously because, as 2018 showed, even an average number of storms can cause significant damage.

So don’t even think about ignoring the truth in that climate change is here to stay since all you need do is go to Panama City Beach, Florida or Mexico Beach, Florida which was reduced to rubble to see for yourself. And those who still ‘live’ in Panama City Beach are to this very day, in tents waiting on funds from the Trump Administration. The mayor of Panama City Beach, Florida has stated that he has been to Washington three times to beg for more funding to clean up the debris left behind by last year’s hurricanes and he says that all he got for his efforts was the sound of crickets chirping. Meanwhile, people are sitting all up in tents provided to them by a more fortunate resident of Panama Beach, Florida and the pictures included in this blog are mostly from her ‘tent city’. The people who ‘camp’ there all say that they would not have any place to go if this woman had not opened her backyard up to them and equipped it with shower facilities, electricity and the other necessities of life. This is exactly what I mean, Black folks, in that we need to get back to community involvement which means doing exactly what this white is doing for other whites. In the pictures, you will notice that not one Black person is depicted. Even disasters cannot bridge the divide between Black people and whites.

The vast majority of homes that are occupied by Black people are owned by whites and those include apartment buildings and so what do we really have to lose when it comes to seeing whites’ shit get fucked up? That’s their shit and nine times out of ten, the house or apartment is a slum and so while we are trying to get our act together and go back to the basics, the same applies with housing other Black people in your area; helping them find suitable housing. Collaboration is the key. Keeping the lines of communication open is the key. Realizing that we are all we have is the key. What is happening is real. What is happening is fucked up but it had to happen because there was no other way to turn the tide. This is Mother Nature’s way of saying to the whites, “You ain’t ALL that! I CAN and WILL fuck YOU and YOUR shit up! And don’t even think I’m playing with your debased ass!” Mother Nature is insisting on grinding the whites’ capitalism shit to a halt! She is fed up with those parasites fucking up her planet and she is doing something about it. Expect more and worse shit to come. And so the only thing I can do is attempt to get you to prepare for what is to come.

Hurricane season is here now. So enjoy the pictures by Vice News that showcase the fact that those who were impacted by last years hurricanes are still adversely impacted today despite having screeched and wailed to their ‘white god’ Donald Trump that they need some funds. They are being referred to as “The Forgotten People” and there will be many more ‘forgotten people’ joining them. So don’t say that you weren’t warned because that would be a lie!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

With historic flooding in the Midwest and hurricane season upon us, it’s about to get even uglier than this and so just like those who are Trump’s rabid base in the Florida Panhandle are being ignored by their ‘white god’, Donald Trump, so are the farmers in the Midwest and Trump’s other supporters who applaud his racist rhetoric, bigotry, misogyny and stupidity. You reap what you sow and so getta reaping!

Monsanto Squares Off With Man Dying of Cancer in Roundup Trial

The ‘Dead Man Sitting’ in the forefront is of course, the sick appearing descendant of slaves who is suing Monsanto claiming Roundup caused his cancer, which it did.

This poor man’s doctors did not even think he would live long enough to testify in court as to what caused his illness.

Lee Johnson’s doctors didn’t think he’d live long enough to testify in court that exposure to Monsanto Co.’s Roundup weed killer caused his deadly cancer.

But the 46-year-old is now first in line to go to trial against the agrochemical giant among thousands of people across the U.S. who blame its herbicide for their disease.

As groundskeeper for the school district in Benicia, California, about 40 miles east of San Francisco, Johnson mixed and sprayed hundreds of gallons of Roundup. He was diagnosed with cancer in 2014, and in July, after chemotherapy and other treatment, his oncologist gave him six months to live.

Monsanto is the same company that developed Agent Orange used in Vietnam to destroy forest cover and crops and since the U.S. Government initially denied the fact that Agent Orange caused health problems in U.S. Servicemen in Vietnam, why would Monsanto acknowledge that Roundup, which is also an herbicide, would cause health problems in human, animal and plant life?

What chemicals are in Agent Orange and what are their effects?

Agent Orange is an herbicide and defoliant chemical, one of the tactical use Rainbow Herbicides. It is widely known for its use by the U.S. military as part of its herbicidal warfare program, Operation Ranch Hand, during the Vietnam War from 1961 to 1971. It is a mixture of equal parts of two herbicides, 2,4,5-T and 2,4-D. In addition to its damaging environmental effects, the chemical has caused major health problems for many individuals who were exposed.

Two of the most common effects of Agent Orange are Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma and prostate cancer.

 

This bears repeating. Two of the most common effects of Agent Orange are Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma and prostate cancer.

The man in the above picture who is fighting Monsanto, has Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. Go figure! Agent Orange causes Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma and was developed by the same makers of Roundup. Coincidence? He as well as others are fighting for justice as well as for their very lives against the Monsanto Corporation who are the makers of Roundup, a weed killer in the same family as Agent Orange. Roundup is an herbicide that contains glyphosphate, a chemical that kills any plant it is applied to, including lawn and garden plants. Monsanto’s argument is that glyphosate has been tested and been found safe for humans despite the fact that it kills plant life. How different from plant life is human life when humans consume plants? Life is life; plant or human, it makes no difference. If plant life can be killed by a chemical then so can human life. Some of the same components can be found in both plant and human life.

Humans And Plants Share Common Regulatory Pathway

In findings that some might find reminiscent of science fiction, scientists at the Scripps Research Institute have shown for the first time that humans and plants share a common pathogen recognition pathway as part of their innate immune systems. The data could help shed fresh light on how pathogen recognition proteins function and the role they play in certain chronic inflammatory diseases.

Studies have shown that Monsanto’s Roundup is extremely toxic:

  • Two key problems caused by glyphosate in the diet are nutritional deficiencies, especially minerals, and systemic toxicity

  • Glyphosate is possibly “the most important factor in the development of multiple chronic diseases and conditions that have become prevalent in Westernized societies,” according to researchers

  • Your gut bacteria are a key component of glyphosate’s mechanism of harm, as microbes have the pathway used by glyphosate to kill weeds

  • Glyphosate causes extreme disruption of microbes’ functions and lifecycles. What’s worse, glyphosate preferentially affects beneficial bacteria, allowing pathogens to overgrow

  • Two key problems in autism unrelated to the brain yet clearly associated with the condition are both linked with glyphosate exposure: gut dysbiosis, and disrupted sulfur metabolism/impaired sulfate transport

There is a common connection alright. Humans and plants share a common pathogen recognition pathway as part of their innate immune systems.  Glyphosate preferentially affects beneficial bacteria, allowing pathogens to overgrow. Now if that does not make a case for Monsanto’s Roundup killing both plants and humans, I don’t know what will. Every life form on this planet has some sort of connection. We all share commonalities and to think that a chemical that kills plants will not harm humans is absolutely ludicrous. How scientists and lawyers and others who work for companies like Monsanto can ‘live’ with their lies is just beyond me when they know of the dangers of the chemicals in Monsanto products, but will deny the dangers exist for money and profit.

Anything that is living is obviously capable of suffering and that would include plants as well as humans and to make products available that cause plants to shrivel and die and humans to shrivel and die as well, should have long since been taken off the market. It is no coincidence that so many people who used Roundup are now suffering from debilitating diseases and are dying from them. Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma is not a mere kidney stone. It is a deadly disease and the makers of Roundup should pay dearly for causing such suffering. It is way past time to hold corporations accountable for the damage they cause to those who live on this planet. Too bad there is no one to fight for the plants that suffer and die thanks to Roundup.

Furthermore, of course Monsanto’s lying slew of paid whores would say that glyphosate is safe. Does anybody believe that Monsanto would hire people to state that a product they are trying to sell is detrimental to human life? Monsanto claims that it has done extensive research on Roundup and that there are no indications that Roundup is harmful to humans. Bullshit! Let my Black ass go work at Monsanto, do some research on Roundup and speak with my supervisor about some findings that are contrary to other ‘scientists’ at Monsanto who have categorically denied any allegations that Roundup causes serious health issues in humans and I would be fired and escorted out so fast, I’d not be able to collect my personal belongings from my desk.

And if Roundup is compatible with humans, why has it been banned in Germany, France and Switzerland, Sri Lanka, Columbia, El Salvador, Russia, The Netherlands, Mexico and several other countries due to its toxic impact? It has been banned because it is deadly to humans, but America’s rulers don’t give a shit for her citizens and Americans don’t even give a shit for themselves for why else do they put up with this shit? To be sick with cancer is not a fucking joke! Ask anyone who has ever had it or who is battling it now! And for those who have been told that they are in remission, let’s clear one thing up right now, remission don’t mean shit because cancer ALWAYS comes back and when it does, it comes back with a vengeance and no amount of chemo or anything else can stop it from killing your ass! That shit does not play with your ass! Not a bit of it! No one deserves a cancer diagnosis and for some shit for brains ‘scientists’ who work FOR Monsanto to claim that Roundup has no ill effects on humans is just beyond the end of enough. But ask yourself this. Do you honestly think that those ‘scientists’ who work FOR Monsanto are handling Roundup without protection? If you do, I have some beachfront property for sale in Death Valley, California. Americans! I know you’re lining up to buy it! You’re just that damn simple and stupid!

“Monsanto, pay those poor sick ass people that you caused to sicken in the first damn place! Americans, grow some damn balls and at the very least, place calls to your no-good politicians to do what other countries who care about their citizens have done; banned Monsanto products! That’s the very least you apathetic and complacent, distracted and brain dead cretins could do!”

 

 

 

 

Man pulls gun on neighbor in Hawaii and screams, “Get Off My Fucked Up Piece Of Paradise!”

Weary from the ongoing flow of lava from the Kilauea volcano, 61-year-old John Hubbard, went berserk and pulled a gun on a neighbor and fired several shots as the lava flow is getting hotter, more fluid, and faster, covering about six football fields an hour. During the four-week crisis, molten rock has spread across four-and-a-half square miles of the Big Island – more than three times the area of New York’s Central Park causing tensions to rise among those in the affected areas who have chosen to remain in their homes despite officials insisting that they evacuate as the spreading lava has the potential to cutoff their only remaining escape route.

From looking at the video, it would seem that things are heating up in Hawaii in more ways than one. Sixty-one year old Hubbard is seen in the video pointing a gun and shooting at or near another man who seems to be trying to explain to him that he lives just down the road, but outraged over the lack of ‘paradise-like’ conditions, Hubbard is having none of it. Fortunately for his other neighbors, Hubbard has been arrested and accused of opening fire and allegedly assaulting a neighbor.

Hawaii’s police department has long been trying to urge residents of this area to leave due to the rapid approach of lava and if incidents like this one continue, the police will have an easier time of getting these people to leave by merely arresting them. And from what I can tell from the video, there has been not one Hawaii Native yet to kick up a fuss and get to shooting, however, whites seem to have no problem shooting it out as the going gets tough, hence the reason they flocked to Hawaii in the first place; to experience ‘paradise’. Who would have thought that ‘paradise’ came with its own issues? How is it even possible that whites should be inconvenienced by a volcano erupting and spilling massive amounts of lava thus covering their homes, vacation rentals and hindering their ability to traverse the terrain around an active volcano?

This island, Honolulu, Hawaii, was touted as ‘paradise’ and by god, ‘paradise’, it should be! What need has ‘paradise’ for an active volcano spilling lava, cooling and then forming massive molten rock walls with lava still flowing between them? It is just too much for whites to take and so it is no wonder that, as usual, guns are the answer to solve the problem of fury over volcanic eruptions. Homelessness is something for the Native Hawaiians to have to deal with, not the whites who usurped the rights of the Native Hawaiians, rendered them homeless and who are now shooting it out amongst each other over ‘Paradise Lost’.

It matters not where whites eventually end up, the solution to every single one of their ‘problems’, ‘inconveniences’ and volcanic eruptions, is to grab a gun and shoot the ‘problem’ or ‘inconvenience’ or volcanic eruption away. I would not be surprised if they did indeed, try to take a gun to the fast moving lava in an effort to cause the flow to cease and desist so that they can, once again, relax on the lanai with a refreshing, alcoholic beverage in hand, while their housekeeper, Native Hawaiian, of course, is busy cleaning up after them. Is that not what happens everywhere white people wash up? Ecuador, Costa Rica, Belize, Panama, Aruba, The Bahamas, Antigua and Barbuda and the list is endless? Make use of the natives as cooks, maids, gardeners and housekeepers? That ‘cheap’ labor thing, you know.

I wonder where the whites will take themselves to next after they lose their homes in Hawaii thanks in part to Kilauea? Just stay put and do not expose innocent people to your penchant for guns, violence and exploitation of the natives of other lands. Haven’t they already put up with more than enough from you?

And lastly, the image of the white man holding a gun on another white man is indicative of their nature. Forever the warring type with an inability to even get along with those who look like them, much less others. But people have the nerve to wonder why others would consider it a favor if whites did not show their faces on their land bringing with them such as this. I don’t wonder. I pity the natives of every island nation or country that was colonized by the likes of these aberrations who desecrate the native peoples and their land and then claim superiority. If only what is pictured below was coming after your white ass! If only!

AGAIN…….IF ONLY!

Just Go Outside!

Look at this beauty!

I am always pissing and moaning, whining and wailing, but look at the view I have. This is taken while picnicking by the lake today. Isn't it beautiful?
I am always pissing and moaning, whining and wailing, but look at the view I have. This is taken while picnicking by the lake today. Isn’t it beautiful?
Wonderfully cloudy and windy, but still, a gorgeous day!
Wonderfully cloudy and windy, but still, a gorgeous day!
Just lovely! And so relaxing!
Just lovely! And so relaxing!
Sunny and cloudy at the same time. But still, so beautiful!
Sunny and cloudy at the same time. But still, so beautiful!

 

A hint of blue breaking through the cloud cover!

A little more clouds, a little less blue, but the trees don't care! So, why should I?
A little more clouds, a little less blue, but the trees don’t care! So, why should I?

 

Who could not love that view?
Who could not love that view?

 

Gorgeous! Gorgeous!
Gorgeous! Gorgeous!

 

A bit of green, blue and white! What a combination of nature!
A bit of green, blue and white! What a combination of nature!

 

More green with a wee bit of blue and white!

Awesome!
Awesome!
I am blessed!
I am blessed!

 

 

I wrote a little poem of just my observations, so this is raw because today, I like it raw!

 

Nature, Bring Me Down To Earth!

 

Her serene and wild beauty soothes me to my soul.

She’s the mother of all things and she never grows old.

She doesn’t let war and radiation completely wear her down.

And though she is mistreated, you’ll never see her frown.

Her clouds still roll across the sky and the birds still peck for worms.

Man thinks that he can tame her, but he lives here on her terms.

She speaks to me and she tells me to find some peace and tranquility.

And that happiness can be found, it’s not an impossibility.

She exhorts me to come and enjoy what she has to offer.

She is fiercely protective of her children, so please, don’t cross her.

She surrounds you everyday with open loving arms.

You don’t need to stay angry, just surrender to her charms.

“Hark The Hypocrites Do Sing!”

hark the hypocrites

 

– sing to the tune of “Hark the Herald Angels Sing.”

Hark the hypocrites do sing!
Glory to the news they bring
Bombs on earth and missiles too
Aimed at me and aimed at you
Peace on earth is but a dream
Can’t you hear the people scream?
Watch the bombs light up the skies
Listen to the children’s cries
And the Christians doth proclaim
Christ was born and that’s so lame
There they sit with pants unzipped
I don’t want to see them stripped
Lambs aren’t in the manger fold
They are waiting to be sold
Lamb chops on the menu here
Wash them down with ice cold beer
Kiss your mother who is drunk
Daddy dear is in a funk
He didn’t get a penis pump
Where’s a cliff for him to jump?
Uncle Jack is in rehab
His herpes has formed a scab

Hark the hypocrites do sing
Glory to the new crack wing!
You will overdose again
When you do, just say, “Amen!”
We so love the holidays,
refugees are in a daze
Drones have struck the innocent
Brag about the cash you’ve spent
Christmas comes but once a year
Hark the hypocrites, you hear!
Glory to the bottom line.
Now throw out this dead ole pine
Bring me whiskey on the rocks
Time to ride some big ole cocks
Hark the hypocrites do sing!
Glory to your fake ass king!

And if you didn’t know, I’ll be more than happy to clue you in. Your fake ass king is M-O-N-E-Y!

I am SO in the Christmas spirit this year, I just cannot help myself. Bombs are being dropped in distant lands. Drones are killing innocent people. But for one day, we will put all of that aside. We will, for one day, express our love for our family and friends and associates. We will gift them all that credit cards can buy. This is how we show our devotion and love; with gifts. We don’t show our love by worrying about the conditions of third-world sweatshops and the people who ‘slave’ in them. We don’t care that people are suffering so bad, that they would rather commit suicide than continue on. We carelessly head to the mall and shop until we drop; shoving that piece of plastic across the counter and out the door, we go. But we are so thoughtful and kind and decent. We then head to the supermarket and thoughtlessly pick the choicest piece of butchered cow or pig or lamb and we get someone to cook that up for us; rare, medium rare or well done. Stock the liquor cabinet. Are all the mixers shelved and ready? Oh look at the beautiful tree. It was beautiful when it was in its natural state, but now, it has been chopped and kept ‘green’ by some polluted ass faucet water; that is until this is all over and then, “Throw it away!”

In all actuality, this planet should “Throw us away!” I wish to hell it would. With our fake ass moaning over climate change; we cut down more trees to have signs printed calling for climate change reform when we are instrumental in the death of this planet by the cutting down of more and more trees for those very signs. Sigh! The ‘human’ race is a disgrace to this planet and to the innocent animals that occupy it and who are at the mercy of the merciless. How can we claim to be merciful when we are shedding tears because our father or brother or sister is overseas, suited up in military gear ready to kill someone they don’t even know and for what? Room and board? Some food stamps? Glory? Honor? One thing I can say is that we cannot lose honor because we never had any to begin with. Now, we’re all just meaningless filth; pretending to be do-gooders and concerned creatures. Shove it! Your so-called ‘loved one’ would not be in Iraq or Afghanistan or Syria if we did not have that killer instinct that drives us. Love does not drive us for if it did, we would not condone the killing of others and claim that it is honorable. What the fuck are YOU celebrating this Christmas? Especially those of you who go on and on about ‘climate change’. Those of you who go on and on about the untold miseries that other people are dealing with while you go on and on about how wonderful and kind you are that you hashtagged some solidarity with the ‘unfortunates’. You did your part when you displayed some colors in a flag over your Facebook photo. Oh wow! Now shit yourself because you did GOOD!

Maybe I am Miss goddamn humbug! But at least, I am honest about the fact that I am just another worthless so-called ‘human’. But one thing about me, I’m NO hypocrite! So, enjoy your ‘holiday’. And I sincerely hope that that pig you’ll eat, deposits itself on your ass!

Cars And Boats And Gold Don’t Matter!

car boat gold

When I’m gone, I’ll miss the sunrise
that can’t warm the coldest grave.
When I’m gone, I’ll miss the ocean.
I’ll not ride another wave.

When I’m gone, I’ll miss the flowers
that I never smelled anyway.
I just took them all for granted
and now, they bloom while I decay.

When I’m gone, I’ll miss the love
that I never did return.
I was too busy earning money
and your love, yes I did spurn.

When I’m gone, who will miss me?
Will my boss for whom I’ve worked?
And will my children come to see me
after they’ve covered me up with dirt?

Before I am gone, I must realize
what is important and what is not.
It’s time to love and smell the flowers
before they lower me in my plot.

Never think that there’s tomorrow.
for it may never come.
Cars and boats and gold don’t matter
when for you, death beats the drum.

Every now and then, I try and take time out from posting about all of the horrors that we are besieged with every day; whether it be from genocide, wars, poverty, inhumanity, racism, hate, materialism and I could go on and on. Think of all the people that set out yesterday, heading to their jobs or to school or wherever and think of all the people that you see, staring down at a phone while walking into you or into a pole. Think of the people that lust and never love. Think of all the people that are busily attempting to amass a fortune and yet, have no idea what it is like to sit down and simply breathe and know what it is to love and to be loved. Think of all those people that have dropped dead and they really had no idea what was really important.

There is nothing so important on the screen of a phone because if it is, why just a few decades ago, were we having no problem in not having a phone everywhere we go? Now, it is unthinkable to even walk around the house without knowing where the smartphone is. It is unthinkable for many to stand outside for a few moments and look up at the sky if you don’t live near a park. It is unthinkable for many to remember that there is more to life than expensive cars, boats, big houses and bulging pockets. When we lost sight of this, we lost a lot. And I for one, don’t think we will ever get that back. More’s the pity. But I post this anyway. Maybe, someone can recall a time before smartphones with apps told us how to live, what to eat, where to shop and who to ‘like’.

I Have A Purpose!

hope

When I just want to turn out the lights,
and shut the door and sleep,
I know that things have gotten to me,
And all I seem to do is weep.

But I pick myself up off the ground,
and I look towards the sky.
Though winter is here for awhile,
all the birds will not simply die.

I feel such hopelessness and anger,
and when all I want to do is quit,
I see the sun poke through the clouds,
and it’s not so dark from where I sit.

Life will never be all rosy.
Nor will it always treat me kind.
But I must not forget why I’m here.
I have a purpose to which I’ve been blind.

If a gift has been given to me,
and if what I say is true,
then I have a responsibility,
to keep trying to get through to you.

You may never get the message.
But I’ll keep trying all the same.
And if one day, I make a difference,
then I’ll be glad, I lit the flame.

Look Up From Your Phone!

images7HVFMFYN

If you ever look up from your phone,
there’s a world of beauty to see.
It’s not found on a screen of apps,
just look up at the leaves on a tree.

You say life is always passing you by.
Where the years have gone, you don’t know.
Have you ever stopped to consider,
that it’s because you are missing the show?
