Turn Off Your TV and Read the 99% Deficit Proposal

The last thing the corporate kings want is for you to understand that the Occupy movement actually does have a clue, and that there are many easily workable solutions to the problems we face in this country. This is because these solutions eliminate the one percent's ability to keep raping the rest of us.

Occupy Wall Street Spells it Out

We've been hearing it from all corners of the corporate establishment media, parroted far and wide by an army of clueless apologists: The Occupy Wall Street movement is one without a clear direction or purpose. It's just a bunch of crazy Liberals with nothing better to do; bored college kids taking to the streets to vent their misguided angst, joined by some aging hippies trying desperately to recapture their Woodstock mojo.

Of course, the truly misguided ones are the talking heads – their moral vision obscured by dollar signs, Nielsen ratings and a debilitating fear of authority – and all their dedicated zombie box followers, who willingly accept being told how to think instead of thinking for themselves...

Not Just Another Day of Protest

Posted in Uncategorized by johnperry on October 4th, 2011

The occupation of Freedom Plaza will not be some “radical left uprising,” as many pretenders will no doubt try to characterize it. It will include people from all political persuasions, as does the Occupy Wall Street movement. People with many differences to be sure, but united in the understanding that a corrupt government will not fix itself, and united in the understanding that, as in the famous words of Frederick Douglass, power concedes nothing without a demand.

We Are All Troy Davis

Seven of nine witnesses against him had recanted their testimony. Another man had reportedly confessed to the crime. At the very least there was enough doubt raised to grant him a new trial, but it never happened. The long, racist arm of southern "justice" had made its decision. Clearly, they couldn't bare the thought of a black man walking free, even if he was innocent. Clearly, the thought of a little more work to ensure true justice never occurred to them. Clearly, they're far too shallow to understand that regardless of the color of our skin, we all bleed red.

Social Security: The Easy Fix

Posted in Uncategorized by johnperry on September 20th, 2011

Most of us can grasp the concept of helping out the ones who came before us as they reach retirement, because, of course, the day will come when we are the retirees. This is the simple logic behind our Social Security system. The ones working today support the retirees who did the same for their elders, and so on. It doesn't take much to see through the people who spend all their time trashing this great American idea . You just need to be willing to look honestly.

The Official 9/11 Myth Turns 10

Posted in Uncategorized by johnperry on September 7th, 2011

We've heard time and time again over the past 10 years from many in government that 9/11 happened because “terrorists hate our freedoms.” It's an incredibly simplistic characterization of the alleged motivation behind the crime of the century, but let's just take it at face value for a minute. The terrorists hate our freedoms, so we have to fight a “Global War on Terror” to defend those freedoms – another mantra, by the way, that we've heard endlessly repeated over the past decade – the soldiers are “fighting for our freedoms.” How then can it possibly make sense to appease the terrorists by adopting legislation and policy that weakens those freedoms?

9/11: Still No Justice

Posted in Uncategorized by johnperry on September 7th, 2011

Let us never tolerate outrageous conspiracy theories concerning the attacks of September the 11th. Malicious lies that attempt to shift the blame away from the terrorists themselves; away from the guilty.” - George W. Bush at the United Nations, 11/10/01

Two months after 9/11 the gaping wound in our collective psyche was still fresh. Most of the world was still struggling with the unprecedented enormity of the attacks, acting on the natural desire to come together to find solace and try to make sense of it all. The time was right to cynically parlay that instinctive unity into the widely held belief that any discourse that doesn't adhere strictly to the official storyline is an “outrageous conspiracy theory.”

Healthcare No-Brainer

Posted in Uncategorized by johnperry on June 2nd, 2011

There is an easy answer. It's just that the talking heads, the politicians and the corporate pimps who own all of them don't want to talk about it because it puts people before profit. The answer is single payer, universal healthcare.
