A Good Man died on Easter...Ruben Carter was the American Dream

By RF Schatten

A kid raised in the streets of Paterson, NJ…in trouble throughout his youth…rising up against all the adversity, and against all odds…and becoming a very talented Boxer, with a good future, in and outside the ring. Then one night, his dreams came to an abrupt end, and his American Nightmare began. The ugly truth of Racism managed to destroy a promising career…but not his mind or his life.

“You can chain me, you can torture me, you can even destroy this body, but you will never imprison my mind” ~~ Gandhi

The Hurricane became an eloquent and beautiful Writer, a Motivational Speaker, an Advocate for Prison Reform, Executive Director of the “Association in Defense of the Wrongly Convicted”, an International Human Rights Activist…and received 2 Honorary Law Degrees…from York University in Canada, and Griffith University in Australia.
He was an Icon and a symbol to many, and an inspiration to a whole new generation. And isn’t that what the American Dream is all about?? Is not just about monetary success…but, about much more!!
As Denzell Washington said; “He lost 7,300 days of his life…but he’s all love”…Ruben really achieved that Dream!!

Much has changed since 1966…yet, so little has really changed. On the upside…there’s a serious determination in American Society, today…within the vast majority of our Country, to cast aside our Social Ills…and learn to live with one another. But you’ll always have those…till all these grown men, ever rise above hate…who will continue to be a scorn on Society.

The fact, that there ‘is’ a Public Outcry in today’s awareness of Racism; the determination, the education, the understanding…using Common Sense and Reason…could be part to Ruben “Hurricane” Carter’s Legacy…he brought us real Public awareness. RIP, Hurricane!!

The GOP is now the all-time defender of Women's Equal Rights...yeah!! whatever

By RF Schatten

Oh!! how times change!!…you can’t hide your true self inside the Political Arena anymore, your life is exposed for the world to see…in living color and high definition…every word, every action, every facial expression. You can Bullshit that sector of the population that’s susceptible to propaganda misinformation…but you can’t Bullshit, the more than ¾ of the population who thinks, they’re all full of it!!

The GOP…who is trying to re-invent themselves as the “New Republican Party”…apparently, are trying to get away from their “Equal Pay for Women??…Are you crazy???” mentality. So, what does the Party of Old, Rich, White Conservatives…with no idea about women, except whatever their wives tell them …spread the good word about the GOP Woman?? Rep. Marsha Blackburn is there…to fight for your Rights!!

 Your not going to find too many Republican Women, speaking out against Women Rights. Though, it’s not surprising that Blackburn spoke up. She loves Women!! She was once quoted saying; “Women don’t want Equal Pay Laws”…and voted against the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act…she’s all for Women and Equal Pay for Women!! That’s why she never votes in their behalves. Marsha Blackburn is a “Professional” Politician with a Degree in Home Economics. All the jobs she’s ever held after College are Political…she’s ambitious, and will vote partisan for the cause…to achieve whatever goal matters at the time, and whatever her goals are.

I give her credit…but with all due respect…with a BS in Home EC, it’s more than just being a nice smart person…where are the credentials to be a member of such committee, as The Energy and Commerce Committee?? and Subcommittees on Healthcare, Commerce Manufacturing and Trading?? She’s there to give her loyal Conservative Vote for the GOP, nothing else…and build up her long term GOP Resume.

The Republican Party is, and has long been…the Leaders in Women Equal Rights???
Hey!! at least they’re trying to believe that…give them credit. They’re a long way from re-branding themselves…after all, it’s hard to change habits. In their world…a Woman is a threat to the Masculinity of the White Power Broker…that’s, what it all comes down to with the GOP. These people have a passion for Hawks…not Doves. They don’t want to lose that power, they have…American Machismo.
They won’t give up, without a battle…but, they’ll waste a lot of $$$ and at the end…still lose

Conservative White America takes Credit for the end of Slavery

By RF Schatten

Christians and the Constitution freed the Slaves?? With all due respect to the Headmaster of Bull at the Heritage Foundation...neither Christians nor the Constitution, freed the slaves...it was an “Executive Order”, called the Emancipation Proclamation and signed by a Religious Skeptic President. It wasn't till conventional wisdom, hit those early Politicos right over the head, that they passed the 13th Amendment, a couple of years later...sounds familiar??

By the way...the Federal Government consists of 3 Branches: the Executive, the Legislative, and the Judicial. The President signed the Executive Order, Congress wrote
and passed the 13th Amendment legislation...and yes!! It was the Federal Government, who freed the Slaves!!


There is a reason why there’s those, who believe we should “de-emphasize” the importance of Education. They're masters in political gibberish...in deceiving, misleading, and down right lying. Use Religious Zealotry to fight your battles in the name of “God”, naturally...and keep Ignorance, alive. Use the “fight” for the defense of Morality, and Family Values as an excuse to become an Immoral human being...just keep that Illusion and Ignorance going. Look at their latest Promo Video...trying to recruit Minorities and Women, to the “New” Party...by offering everything they oppose. An Uneducated and Ignorant population is their primary goal. 
If it can't be achieved, David and Charlie Koch won't get to play in their new White Play House.

The GOP, the Tea Party, the Heritage Foundation, Cato Institute (aka) Koch Brothers, Citizens United (aka) Koch Brothers, Americans for Prosperity (aka) Koch Brothers, and every other right wing organization...Koch Brothers related or not...have one thing in common; They thoroughly enjoy speaking done to people, showing their arrogance,
showing their insolence, their impudence towards those less fortunate.

Really good Christian people!! so Godly!!...and specially their Humility....unbelievable!! They'll be in the wrong side of History, lose, and blame everyone but themselves...and then...these good Christians, will all burn in Hell!!

You have the Constitutional Right to be Stupid

By RF Schatten



“The saddest aspect of Life right now is, that Science gathers Knowledge faster than Society gathers Wisdom” ~~ Isaac Asimov



Aaron Miller, is the latest example of why the Republican Party, has become the Party of the Stupids...a Party that advocates the lowering of Educational standards...which means, advocating Ignorance. They may not truly believe they're doing it...but they are!!
In his defense, yes!! He can home-school his daughter, all he wants...but Science remains part of his state's Educational Requirements.
Now, this man wants to get elected to Congress, and pass legislation to stop the teaching of “Science” in the American Classrooms...and it's not all just about “Evolution”. He's really going to get far with that!!...but the Climate Deniers, Anti-environmentalists, Flat Earth believers, Social Conservative Anti-evolution aficionados, and all the Tea Drinking
crowd...will love it!!
It's curious to see Science Deniers use the Internet and TV, both brainchilds of Science...to push their agenda, and convince people that Science doesn't exist.

My question is; why does anyone want their Child to be Stupid??
Science, is the Latin for “Knowledge”. Every single solitary thing you know, that you have learned, that you've experienced and thought about, throughout your lifetime...including what you have learned from your parents...all of it, is derived from all the different bodies of Science...Physical, Social, Formal, Applied, Interdisciplinary, Life,
and Philosophy.

Where is the common sense, that says people do not need to be Educated?? There are quite a few that would prefer the Ignorance for themselves and their kids...those who prefer to live back in the beginning, roughing it out as people of the land...the common
clay of the new west. There are others who simply, rather find a cave...and stay there till some Spiritual Revelation shows them the light, out.

Mr. Miller just represents what people like him believe. And it's more than just the “Bible”, they want to impose all their beliefs on their kids...don't let them think for themselves, like the Texas School Systems believes about Critical Thinking.

And they will fail, again!! as everyone else has done throughout History!!...as Penn Physics Professor David Balamuth said; “You can't limit people's desire to understand the way the world works”

New Party??...Same Faces!!



By RF Schatten

Come one, come all...join the “New” Republican Party!! With all the bad publicity, and negative ratings in demographics, the Republicans are having their politically dysfunctional PR staff, set up a new Promotional Campaign, to attract the masses. It's called “The New Republican Party”...without anything new!!


“If you believe that the economy should be driven from the bottom up and not the top
down from Washington, then you're a New Republican!!”...never mind, that the people telling you that, are Supply Side Economics believers. Never seen it “trickle up”!!
“If you believe that every parent ought to be able to choose their child's school,
you're a New Republican”...so join us, from the Inner Cities and demand the right to go to better suburban schools...if you can't afford it...we'll find plenty of Vouchers for you!!
Yes!! we need all of you, to join and help us fight against all your rights...we need
minorities and Blacks to fight for Voter Suppression, the 1% can't do it alone!!
Women!! be a true “New Republican”, and help us fight that War against you...we can't do it without you.


Do I have to go on??...or do you get the point?? And the GOP believes this garbage is
going to sell??They might!! After a disastrous run as Chairman, and a Party in total disarray...they bought Reince Priebus' BS, and re-elected him!!


It's really hard for a Political Party, to attract members...if the members they are trying to attract, are the ones the party is trying to defeat!! All the Promos for the “New Party” are programmed to attract Ignorance...the ones who truly believe in the “Principles of the New Republican Party” and those, are already there...they like to drink Tea. Fools will always follow whatever foolishness they can find, but the rest of the Country won't buy the Promo!!


Until the GOP truly embrace Immigrants and Immigration Issues, until they genuinely embrace Blacks, the Gay Community, Women, Hispanics and all other Ethnic Groups, the Youth, the Elderly...and all their issues!!...Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, now Obamacare...and stop their; War on Women, Anti-Gay attacks, Anti-Environmental
Attacks, and embrace a multi-denominational Society, where all Religions have the same Equal Rights. This is not just a Christian Nation...we're a Multi-Denominational Nation.

Until all that occurs...don't expect the “New Republican Party” to be too “new”...and don't expect a sudden rush of people to join.

GOP to NOAA: Don't Study the Weather...just Predict!!

By RF Schatten


Unbelievable!! The US House of Rep. passes a Bill, to Require U.S. Government Weather
Agencies to focus more on “predicting” Storms, and less on “Climate Studies”?? With all do respect, to all the Stupids... “you are stupid”!!

Without Climate Studies on Weather Patterns and Conditions, how are you going
to; 1) Find out what causes those patterns and/or conditions to occur.
2) Determine what can be done. 3) Formulate a plan on how we can resolve
the eminent situation...with that in mind...how the hell are you going to make 'accurate' predictions?!?! Accuracy depends on the person's knowledge of the subject. Climate Studies 'is' essential, if you want to make accurate predictions on the weather!!

Whether you shift funds from Climate Change Research to Severe Weather Forecasting
Research...it's all the same structure and mechanics of Weather research, it works for the better good...once you know what causes what...you'll be able to make better and faster forecasts and predictions. Duh!!!

Now, from Science and other serious matters...again, to our standard, everyday Lunacy. We've had Science deniers forever...at least today, they are required to be a little more
civil. Back in those days, people like Galileo, Vesalius, Copernicus, Kepler, and Sir Isaac Newton, were called “Heretics”.

During the Inquisitions...those wonderful exhibitions of Christianity...at least
107 Catholics, 3 from Eastern Orthodoxies, 1 Calvinist, and 4 others from assorted countries...were Executed. I'm so full of joy, that I live in a much more, civilized world...though, there's some who yearn for those days, right now!!

Someone once said; “The Bible is a mysterious document intentionally written in a style difficult to interpret and contextualize” Santayana said; “The Bible is Literature,
not Dogma”. Religious Fanaticism will live forever, so will Political and Religious Charlatans...and no!! Barack Obama was not the cause for Hurricane Sandy!!

We're in the 21st Century, already...in modern society, common sense always prevails...but, God forbid, if it doesn't!! Then buy a lot of suntan lotion, if it gets Hot...or get plenty of supplies, stock them away, and crawl under a rock...if the next Ice Age
arrives.

Obamacare: Success vs. Excuses and Misinformation

By RF Schatten



Every Social Program started in this country, had skeptics and critics...and now they all
use, all those benefits they criticize so much. If you don't like Medicare or Social Security, don't use them...if you have the $$$, more power to you...but leave those less fortunate, alone.

A Little Story...a true story. Back in the 70s, while working in South Central LA, at
Martin Luther King Jr....way before the scandals in the 2000s...around 1am at night, I received a call on 2 drive-thru gunshot victims, coming in. Mother and Son...the mom had a .32 bullet lodged between ventricles...I did open-heart massage...when CPR is
impossible, you cut the ribcage and cut to the chase...she was conscious the entire time!! crying out... “don't let my son die!!” What the human spirit is capable of. She died in surgery, but next door...the son...whose status condition was “Grave”...made it,
after 3 months of hard work in his part...and ours.
A sad, happy...and courageous, tale. Mom dies, Son struggles for 3 months to
survive, and walks out of the Hospital.

Epilogue of the Tale: A year later, he comes in to visit us. This was way back, and 1000s of patients, later...I honestly can't remember his name, but I sure can remember his face...and specially, his mom's. He was a good young man, respectable home...not rich, not even close...his mom was a hotel maid, his dad was deceased. He worked fast food, and didn't have much of an insurance plan. This man, had both his Hospital Bill and his Mom's....the thousands and thousands of dollars, this kid owed...and he paid it off!! within the year, by selling most of what he owned and his home...the only thing his mom left him. The man gave up all he had!! all the personal family memories, his dreams, a
home...that could have been part of his future!! Why?? He didn't want to owe anyone anything!!
Just because you’re poor, doesn't mean...you don't have Moral Character, as Rick Santorum and Rand Paul, both have so arrogantly suggested.

Now, he wouldn't have had to do all that, if Affordable Care was around then.
Something is wrong, when Medical Insurance, becomes a more important issue, than the people being Insured.

You can talk all you want, about the Pros and the Cons...Affordable Healthcare is here to
stay...and it should be embraced by all. It will make this, a much healthier Nation in the long run...and it's the moral and compassionate thing to do!! $$ issues?? The rest of the world, has survived 'their' Obamacare...so will we!!

The Acceptance of Obamacare...even Republicans get Sick

By RF Schatten



Why do Republicans sure hate the ACA??...after a lot of careful research, the only possible conclusion is...because Obama passed it!! “We don't need Obamacare, our system is already the best in the world!!” USA#1!! USA#1!!


Of course, if Mitt Romney would have won, no one would be complaining...they would've just change the name to Romneycare, and say it was his plan after all.
The rest of the world looks at us, and laughs, as we fight about the virtues of semi-Socialized Medicine, versus America's unique Capitalistic system of Medicine...theirs, are all socialized. Hassles?? There are hassles everywhere in the world...it's part of life...but you learn to live with it.

Who has the best care in the world?? Since the last survey done by the World Health Organization, the best Quality of Medicine practiced, belongs to?? USA#1!! USA#1!! Sorry folks, the best quality medicine goes to...France #1!! France #1!! OK, then it's USA #2?? Nope!! The next 9...in pecking order, following France are...Italy, San Marino, Andorra, Malta, Singapore, Spain, Oman, Austria, and Japan. Well, how about the USA?? Ah, yes...the old Red, White, and Blue is #37!! Yes, #37...just behind Costa Rica, and just ahead of another medical and science metropolis...Slovenia!!

Why is it, that Republicans don't want affordable healthcare, for those less fortunate??...obviously, it will improve the overall quality of life in this country...that's a no brainer. The American Medical Association, the last bastion of Medical Conservatism, approved the plan...the Pharmaceutical Industry, has embraced it...and the Insurance Industry, has too. Over 6 million already enrolled, and Red State Governors in Arizona, Kentucky, Ohio, and among others...are spewing the great deals and savings, their states are getting.

So why keep on hammering on the ACA?? It's more than obvious, that anyone, below what they consider to be their standards in Class...is not in their personal agenda...and not necessarily, just this issue. Their total Arrogance, their Insolence, their Impudence, and their total lack of Humility...it's the Republican way. 

America, home of the Greatest Health System ever invented by man...we need to stop patronizing ourselves. We 'are' a great country, with some great Medicine, but don't brag...it's tacky...we're still #37

The Mad Man joins Dirty Harry, in GOP's "Skip Invitation" List

By RF Schatten



Deep in the Heart of Texas, the Stars at Night may be Big and Bright…but, to one former shining semi-Rock Star…his glow is quickly dimming. Ted Nugent; well known mediocre Rock Star, fanatical Gun Rights troll, self proclaimed Racist, who says; “All men are not created equal”, and well noted sadistic “Animal Killer”…was given a good size
severance, just for staying away!!…in the words of Dandy Don; “Turn out
the lights, the party’s over!!”

Maybe Texas Republicans, are using…god forbid…Critical Thinking. When members of
the state’s clown representation…Ted Cruz and Rick Perry…both came out against the
Whackmaster, the GOP community began to have second thoughts…wrong idea for the
4th of July…not this year, too sensitive in this political season. In a rare moment of common sense, they realized that they preferred paying him off, and not being embarrassed publicly…than to listen to yet another rendition, of Terrible Ted singing
“Cat Scratch Fever”.

Theodore Anthony Nugent, is an icon for all that is ignorant in America, and the darling Hero of the Tea Party, a conflicting character whose “anti stances” are contradictory, to the way he lived…once saying, very hypocritically and sarcastically, what he had to do, to avoid the draft; “I’d rather shit myself, than fighting for my Country…since I’m Pro War…I’ll send other people to do the job for me” PS: He did shit in his pants, among other just as disgusting things…to get his draft deferment. And he was proud of what he did, as
he told the Detroit Free Press in 1990. What a great patriotic American!!

Yea!! he’s crazy, he’s a lunatic, he’s a despicable and terribly disrespectful piece of garbage…and even, when the GOP thinks he’s nuts, and don’t want his face seen anywhere, within 100 miles from an event…he’s still goes home with $16,000, for just
being an Asshole.

Loser vs. Loser: The Battle for Cook County's Republican Voters

By RF Schatten

 America!! What a Country!! It’s primary season, and our favorite Political Reality Show, is back: “America’s Next Clown”. Who will this week’s winner be??
Yes!! it’s Chicago, where both sides can argue till hell freezes over, on who runs more corrupt, scandalous, or just plain, looney political campaigns…that said…this one, ranks as major comedy chat sound bytes, among Political Satirists and Late Night Talk Hosts.
A Republican primary race between 2…count them…2 major head cases. One has court orders, that he’s fighting, to attend anger management classes and undergo a mental health assessment. The other, belongs in the Cookie Factory, since she’s a few cookies short…even the Illinois GOP, disavowed her!!
And the winner is?? The batshit with the few cookies short, that the Republicans are running as far away as if she were a Leper.
Atanus wants to run against the leading Progressive in the US Congress, Rep. Jan Schakowsky, this November. Her name alone, has brought attention to the fact…that as another blogger, very well mentioned…the name Atanus, is an Anagram for; “As a Nut”. And yes, it does tell you a lot about this lady. Her battle is today’s typical Tea Flavored hodge-pudge of Religion, Social Conservative mores, and Ignorance.
It’s Common Sense, Progress, and moving forward vs. moving back into the Caves with the “Croods”.
If the Croods think they’re in the Stone Age, wait till the Tea Party moves in…in the words of “Grug”: “there goes the neighborhood!!”

American Citizens are the Weirdest in the World?? No!!!…well?? at least just a Little

By RF Schatten

In a recent study, Anthropologists have determined that American Citizens, are the “Weirdest” in the World!! I’m surprised that it’s taken this long, for scholars to figure this out.

We live in a Dysfunctional Society…we’re a melting pot of Races, Ethnicity, and Religions…and all of their Cultures. And when you start intermingling all those Cultures, with all those Races, Ethnic Groups, and Religions…what do you expect, is going to happen?? Yes!! we ‘are’ Weird, so what?? We ‘are’ the wretched refuse, that the world discarded, and now, all want to do business with.
America is not perfect, no one is…and to those who believe we are, always been, or should be…we never have been!! Even our “Founding Fathers” weren’t perfect…Jefferson was a Philanderer, plus fathered a good portion of the Slave population in Virginia. Ben Franklin, aside from his distinguished public life, was also known for some of his eccentricities…they kept telling him to “go fly a kite”…he did, and look at what came out of it?? The rumors of Alexander Hamilton’s gay relationships, Patrick Henry’s male chauvinism, that kept his wife chained up in the basement…what can I say, Americans have been Weird since all those Weird people, founded this wonderful Weird Nation.

We’re anything but perfect…we complain about Government, but, so many today wish that it
fails…just because, they don’t personally like the guy in charge?? Europe and the rest of the world, thinks Americans are totally nuts!! And yes, we are nuts…look at our US Political arena, today!!
The study suggests that the cognition of an American, is not just different from other Western cultures, but somehow, “malformed” or “twisted”. How twisted or malformed?? I’ll leave that up to you.
You know these Anthropologists can’t be all wrong…look at this country, everywhere…Weirdness is flourishing, gushing out all around us.

Weirdness?? We ‘are’ the product of a broken Dysfunctional Society…but that isn’t always bad, it makes you think. The study says; “Weird minds are also more analytic, possessing the tendency to telescope in on an object of interest, rather than understanding that object in the context of what is around it”. I’ve been “Weird” all my life…nice to know, I’m considered the norm, these days.

Samuel Adams makes a “Major Pro-Gay Move”…because it’s good for business!!

By RF Schatten
 

St Paddy’s Day 2014 – City Mayors Walsh in Boston, and De Blasio in New York, are boycotting their respective parades. With Gay Veterans and other LGBT Groups not allowed to participate, now, sponsors are pulling out…an embarrassment for the Parades??? In a political year…yes! And politics has played a part…but, it’s also a signal of our overall public acceptance,

It’s not all Politics, we’re literally seeing our Society changing, almost in front of our eyes.
Before all the Kudos are said…remember, Boston Beer '‘was’ participating in the St. Patrick’s Day Parade…until City Cafe, dropped Sam Adams from their delivery route…and that followed with a string of Gay Bars in the Boston area…and that’s not good for business and their American Dollar.
 

We’re in a new century, life just continues to progress and evolve. The American business supports Gay Rights, because they believe in the cause, or because is best for business…either way, Gays, are generally accepted, with any biases that one might personally have…kept to themselves. That’s how America managed to survive Civil Rights, and all the transformations in this Nation since the 1960s, in our Society…people remaining civil with each other…until, the aroma of Tea started polluting the air.

Oh!! Happy Days!! James Bowman would fit perfectly, as a Slave Owner!!...a kind Slave Owner, because he believes in "Contended Slaves"!!
This character happens to be a Movie and Culture Critic!!...and for the American Spectator!! who else??
He's a Social Christian Conservative, who not only echos every single word, from all of today's Political Looney Tunes...but, he's also a critic of the Roman Catholic Church, and the way "they" interpret the Bible..what the hell does the Vatican know? He also believes that the Pope, along with Barack Obama are part of a world conspiracy, for the Muslim Brotherhood to take ultimate power, and make America an Islamic State.

George Carlin; gone...but his Words will stay forever

By RF Schatten

To some people, George Carlin was just a comedian...to almost an entire generation...he was much more, he was an Observer of Life...a Commentator, a Storyteller about Society, our Culture, our Religious Believes, and our Education...particularly the use of words, in the English Language.

When speaking in meetings or conferences about Religion, Politics, and Society...there's one person all Academics bring up either because of his theories, observations, and/or quotes...

Carlin was Roman Catholic...and a big critic of the Church...but, I bet he and Pope Francis, would have gotten along, marvelously!!
