Obama: More Gray than Black or White


by Antenna Wilde

Ever since Obama’s speech on 3/18/08, one segment keeps ringing in my brain:

“I have brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews, uncles and cousins, of every race and every hue, scattered across three continents.”

Wow… even Eskimo? This guy is good; he’s genetically associated himself with every person on the planet—in just one sentence. I’m sure that nailed down the Siamese-twin and hermaphrodite vote as well. All he has to do is get those aliens from Area 54 registered, and he’s a shoe-in. I’d like to suggest the perfect running mate: Tiger Woods.

I’m kind of jealous, that’s all. I mean, I’m only English, Dutch, French and Scot (my Dad claims we’re Swedish too, but I think he just had a great vacation there). Maybe with the help of genetic engineering, I could infuse the rest of the races into my biological code—and throw in a dolphin, leopard and chimpanzee for posterity.

Obama, Clinton and McCain’s genealogies are here. Pretty weird, though interestingly enough, Obama has the most links to former presidents.

Now, if only we can get him to speak dolphin…

Obama: REAL Change?


As the race for the White House heats up, I write another cliche opener.

As these jaded fingers tap away at my weary keyboard, I wonder if Obama’s really got a chance at this thing. Look at what’s at stake; a mighty chunk of control over the most powerful corporation in the world—the U.S. government. And now that he’s a real threat, Billary has joined forces with the GOP to knife this guy into oblivion. Obama offers hope and change, or, a hope FOR change. Because that’s what we’re really doing, hoping things will change.

Now you may say, “But people are out there in the streets, fighting the good fight… fighting for change and not just hoping.” This is true, but look at Ron Paul. By all accounts, he had what it took to be a leading candidate (Yes, he’s a bit goofy, but barring that…) he raised the most $ of any Republican candidate; had a grass roots following based on populist views like nationalism, ending the war and cutting government into bite-sized morsels, and he supported the Constitution. Shocking. The media ignored him—of course—because it was in Daddy Warbuck’s best interest.

But then why does Obama get the coverage? He’s a well spoken figure of change with an interesting life story? Sure, there’s a story, but would he have been given the CHANCE to be a story if he wasn’t willing to play ball in the first place? What I like about him IS his inexperience. Because he’s that less likely to have turned to the Dark Side already. I know we all want something to believe in, but I don’t think Pfizer, Johnson& Johnson or General Electric are too worried. Or are they?

There’s two possibilities I see here, 1: Obama is full of it, nothing of real significance will change. 2: He’s serious about change, which means a) Diebold, Skull and Bones and the powers that be will “fix” election day and put McCain in there (if he’s still walking by then). b) he’ll be assassinated before he has a chance. c) he’ll be assassinated after he gets into office. d) Big Brother is monitoring this blog.

Let’s be honest, we can’t REALLY have change, that would be revolution… real revolution with mayhem in the streets: a full-blown police state (not just the regular wiretapping and email monitoring for insider profits). No friends, I mean “release the hounds” kind of police state, because if you think the military industrial complex is going to forget about 630 billion dollars a year, or that Disney won’t mind paying a fair tax rate on 31 billion dollars a year, or Goldman Sachs on their 90 billion a year; just take a vacation and don’t come back.

I’m for profit, but when a Washington insider like Goldman Sachs has a net income increase of 84% in a single quarter, (http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_qn4158/is_20050921/ai_n15361131) I’m reminded of what my Grandpa used to say, “Don’t piss on my head and tell me it’s raining.” And yeah, Goldman Sachs gives $ to Obama, Clinton and McCain. Somebody tell me it’s different… please?

Politicians are Corporate Bitches…and Monsanto is the Anti-Christ

…and Monsanto is the Anti-Christ

by Antenna Wilde

It has become increasing clear that very few—if any—mainstream news outlets are objective. The same could be said for any news outlet I suppose, everyone has a bias to a degree, but the whole POINT of journalism is to remain indifferent. The New York Times should not be endorsing anyone, simply reporting the facts as they arise. Same goes for the rest of ’em….

That is why the web is increasingly becoming the most important source of independent, unbiased news and information. Let’s hope “The Man” doesn’t gobble up every PING, search engine and re-direction there is (which, by the way, is happening with Fox “News” on WordPress). Otherwise, what seems unbiased will slowly become a mainstream FEED, which equals: JUST PLAIN CENSORED.

Take the case of Jane Akre and Steve Wilson, two Fox reporters in Tampa who, in 1997, were fired for refusing to revise a story regarding recombinant bovine growth hormone produced by Monsanto, a multi-billion dollar company that brought you such favorites as Agent Orange, “Terminator “seeds, and an ongoing series of heinous genetically altered chemical DUMPING right in your back yard.

Fox news bowed to pressure from Monsanto and fired the reporters who refused to alter the facts of the story. The reporters sued Fox—and won—but the decision was reversed on appeal. Why? According to Columbia Journalism Review, “Fox successfully appealed against judgment on the grounds that its First Amendment rights to freedom of speech and press protected it from such litigation, and that the FCC’s policy against distortion of news was not a sufficiently significant rule for its breach to invoke the whistleblower law.”

Which means, oddly enough, that Fox didn’t argue it HADN’T distorted the facts, rather, it’s argument was that The First Amendment gives them the RIGHT to present a “distortion of the news.” And they call it “Fair and Balanced.”

What is even scarier is the fact that a giant corporation like Fox won’t even mess with Monsanto who, one could argue, poses the biggest threat to the survival of the human race. Their genetically modified foods are unknowingly consumed daily by Americans (banned in every other first world country, by the way) have been shown to cause liver and kidney toxification in rats (then released for human consumption after a 90 day “test” period) and are cross-pollinating organic foods every time the wind blows.

Perhaps the most transparent indication that Monsanto is run by the Anti-Christ is, after this accidental pollination occurs, they sue the affected farmers for “patent infringement”. Hillarious! Of course this is all kept quiet by our Politicians (who receive PAC money and LOBBYING money from Monsanto) and the Media pundits who, as one can imagine, keep their mouths shut by stuffing them with ORGANIC FOOD.
