06-24-2006 Greeting Earth Citizens. Lately I've been a bit depressed and can't seem to shake it despite herbal teas and extensive meditation. So today I hope to purge all my bummers by highlighting the issues that have been upsetting me. To balance the ying with the yang, I'll follow up by listing a few encouraging victories in the advancement of the Progressive/Liberal cause.

Bummer: Rove was not indicted. All Free Thinkers were very hopeful that this would be our shining opportunity to thoroughly undermine the President. But all our work was for naught and the public disgrace that we so fervently hoped for alluded us. We should have known that the courts would fail to produce true justice, just as it failed when it sentenced a gentle author of Childrens' books to death, one Tookie Williams.

Bummer: Religious intollerance. Our culture continues to disrepect the religion of Islam through belittling cartoons of their Prophet, Mohammed. How can Americans be such morons as to not realise that disrespect serves only to worsen the situation. It sickens me every time I hear some meat eating, Faux Newz watching, red-stater flipantly use an inflammatory term like "Islamofascist." If Americans think that anything productive can come from demeaning an entire people with childish name calling, then Americans are complete imbeciles. Perhaps it's time to take a que from some more advanced European nations and adopt some anti-hate speech laws so we can put this sort of ugly thing to an end.

Bummer: murder. George W. Bush and his S.S. henchmen were celebrating the murder of Zarqawi. What type of sick depraved animal would celebrate death? These types of people must be stopped at all costs. Pic above is a screen shot taken from al-Jezeera network on sattelite channel 4426. Gert and I watched a moving documentary last night that highlighted the resourcefulness and dedication of this man. It's like my favorite commedian, Bill Maher, said: "We have been the cowards, lobbing cruise missiles from 2,000 miles away. That's cowardly. Staying in the airplane when it hits the building, say what you want about it, it's not cowardly."

Bummer: Bush spin. Bush gestapo agents find a mere 500 shells with neurotoxin warheads. Predictibly, he's trying to use this to support his silly claim that Saddam was an aggressor. What evidence is there that Saddam would have ever used those shells? Did it ever occur to people that he had those shells for defensive purposes? Duh!? But as usual, Bush uses political spin in an attempt to make Saddam look like some sort of dangerous power hungry aggressor. Ridiculous.

Phewww....that felt good to get that mess off my chest. Now, on with the uplifting victories.
(Side note: currently listening to "Joe Hill" perfomed by Joan Baez & Jeffrey Shurtleff.)

Thumbs up: Massachusetts for it's progressive new educational policy of reading gay themed fairy tales to second graders. As expected, some close minded, bigoted parents objected to this and are in the process of filing a frivolous law suit. Click here for the latest. But there is no doubt that a new dawn is rising where we Progressive Liberals redifine tired old traditions like marriage. When you consider the positive cultural changes brought about by our people in the Sexual Revolution of the late 60's, we now look forward to even more extreme changes with the Gender Revolution. Remember, trying to label behaviour as "right" or "wrong" only leads to conflict.

Thumbs up: to Student Insurgent, the University of Oregon’s student-run Marxist/Anarchist publication. Despite national pressure from moronic right-wing red-staters, they held their ground for the cause of free speech. GOOD FOR YOU! A bonus is the hilarity of the cartoons that caused such a fuss amongst all the superstitious jesus myth believers. I especially enjoyed the one on the front page. HAHA VERY FUNNY. I bought extra copies for the other volunteers down at Planned Parenthood. It was a big hit. Gert and I could hardly catch our breath we were laughing so hard. Take a hint right-wing red-staters: free speech is here to stay! And if you don't like it, then TOO BAD! Check out the great cartoons by clicking here!

Thumbs up: Cindy Sheehan! Gert and I have been riveted to sattelite channel 2501, Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's coverage of Ms. Sheehan's arrival to support those brave deserters from the U.S. military. I'm so proud of Cindy making amends for Casey Sheehan, her dead son, terrible mistakes in judgement. You see, not only did Casey Sheehan make the mistake of voluntarily enlisting in the U.S. military, but he purposely reenlisted when the U.S. illegaly went to war with Iraq. Cindy Sheehan has managed to turn this around and use those ignomonious actions of her dead son to further our cause of truth! Furthmore, she did this despite the rest of Casey's family disavowing Cindy's message and claiming that it doesn't represent Casey's beliefs! Very progressive Cindy! You go girl!

Thumbs up: to Gert! My loving wife will star in a one woman, grass-roots production of The Vigina Monologues. The play will be held right here in our back yard. All proceeds will go to Crystal Gail Mangum, the victim of the horrific gang rape by white members of the Duke Lacrosse team. Gert's been diligently praticing her lines with me all week and I know the show will be a resounding success!

We've invited the local members of the National Organization of People for Eliminating Nescience In Sexuality (N.O.P.E.N.I.S.), as honored guests for their recent achievements in victims' research. Their innovative questionnaires utilizes deep hypnosis techniques to help women uncover repressed memories and describe their harrowing ordeals. Their new data indicates that nearly 40% of all women have been sexually assaulted by a male family member.

Welp, that does it for now. Once again it's time to rotate the soy cultures. Please excuse this abreviated post but I've been feeling a bit lethargic as my body acclimates from my old vegan diet, to my new 100% zegan diet.

06-21-06: Greetings fellow Earth Citizens. Welcome all Free Thinkers and those in need of healing.

In today's post I hope to educate those that have been lied to by the propaganda machine of the United States. Many Americans beliefs are shaped by the xenophobic twistings of the Bush/Cheney agents of deceit. But we liberals are a bit smarter than most Americans, and we know where to get the real story.

We are are well aware that the media within our country is heavily censored to protect the illegal Bush oil regime (except for the brave people of Air America, of course). Gert and I have gone to great lengths to find free and honest news coverage from diverse international sources. Thanks to several satellite dishes mounted all over the side of our home, a short-wave radio, and the extensive periodical subscription list down at the UC Berkeley freedom library, we've been able to stay abreast of the heinous atrocities committed by the U.S.A capitalistic war machine.

Last night on channel 2989, we saw an revealing story from the Turkish news agency, Anatolia. They have PROOF that the 9-11 "terrorist attacks" were in fact a conspiracy organized by the Bush/Capitalist/Christian forces of oppression! Here's just a small excerpt of the points made by that insightful report:


The secretly planned demolition by explosives of building 7, just hours after the collapse of the twin towers, is now a matter of fact. The "planes" that struck the twin towers did no structural damage to building 7. There has NEVER been a recorded incident where a steel framed building collapsed from even a serious fire, and the fires in building 7 were very limited after the "attack". Video shows the collapse beginning with the roof penthouse, even though the fires were only on a few of the lower floors. These were undoubtedly arson fires, as the debris falling from the twin towers would have only set fire to the roof and upper floors. A deliberate, pre-planned explosive demolition is the ONLY explanation for the collapse of this building. Not surprising, the 9-11 Commission completely ignores this damning evidence in it's white-washed report.

After the show we did a quick google search to find the evidence the documentary spoke of. Here's what we found:

Later on channel 3302, we found an interesting exposee by Venpres, the Venezuela news agency, on the nature of neocon capitalism. Here's some highlights:

When George Bush and other greedy capitalists speak of spreading freedom to the world you must realize that they do not mean freedom in the sense that most of us understand it. We must read between the lines to see that they are speaking from the perverted, warped, sadistic language of capitalism. By freedom they do not mean a true democracy or the liberation of the oppressed. They mean the unfettered access to international markets through the use strong-arm tactics of military and economic forces. The majority of the world defines freedom in human terms. Greedy capitalists conceive of freedom in terms of corporate profits, access to trade markets, and absolute dictatorial rule to support their filthy financial interests. This is the face of the United States today, and how greedy capitalists view fair trade as it relates to human rights.

Not only did capitalism give birth to the idea of selfish corporations, it endowed them, with all of the rights of personhood and none of the social responsibility of actual citizens. The idea of corporate personhood has to be one of the most twisted and bizarre creations ever produced by western culture. The corporate culture of the USA is evil, it is a sociopathic monster, and it has wrecked destruction wherever its monstrous tread has touched free peoples.

This is Bush's vision of the future for the Venezuelan people. Recently, Venezuela had to offer an emergency shipment of oil to the United States to keep tens of thousands of it's elderly from freezing to death. One need only look at the wretched conditions his own poor citizens must endure under his tyranical rule to know that he is a force for evil and must be resisted.


We had so much hope during the 60's for building a compassionate tomorrow. How could we let our country come to this?! I actually burst into tears of shame during this show. Gurt wrapped her ample loving arms around me to comfort me. Slowly, my sobs abated and I was resolute to let the world know that not all Americans are evil. In fact, many of us stand shoulder to shoulder with those resisting the evil, torturing, greedy, war machinery of this administration.

Greetings and well met. I am Dr. Bruce Balmer-Cohen, Phd, Dipl. ABT. This is the first step on what I hope to be a spiritually enriching journey. I have dedicated my life to helping people to embrace freedom through unconditional acceptance and understanding. This wonderful new electronic media will enable me to connect with other Free Thinkers, and also allow me to heal those that have been emotionally damaged by the bondage that is traditional western culture.

This is Mz. Gertrude Balmer-Cohen. She is my love, my life partner, my muse. Gert has known me since 1981, way back when I was an undergrad at UC Berkeley. Back then I was just an insecure shy kid with a stuttering problem and had no understanding of the world. Through Gert's firm guidance, I have become a confident man of the world who's not affraid to express his emotions.

This is my life, my joy, my legacy. This is my son, Che. Che's a grad student at Mills College studying multi-cultural awareness and sensitivity in education. I consider him a real "chip off the old block," and is most likely sired by me.

Welp, that's it for introductions. I'm off with Gert for another pro-choice rally down at the park. I'll post soon.
