"Earth Days," A PBS/"American Experience" Production

On Earth Day, it is good to watch this almost 2-hour documentary for the perspective.
PBS's show "Earth Days" (, first shown in 2010, ironically appeared just 12 days before the catastrophic blow-out of the BP/Macando deep-water/deep-plate well in the Gulf of Mexico.

Mostly it presents pretty much an iron-clad indictment of the "best minds of corpoRat America" as being, in fact, a pack of venal, self-aggrandizing, clueless/deluded fucktards and predatory capitalist ideologues. In the first 30 seconds of the later "convo" segment, they bring on the CEO of Duke Power who praises this "industry" for 'working with' environmentalists, and host Ray Suarez just grins and glad-hands the fucker and truckles becomingly.


Watch Earth Days on PBS. See more from American Experience.

The American Myth Machine And It's Disquiets

"The national "myth" elevates, exaggerates and aggrandizes the people's own self-regard." Bingo! No small addition to which was accomplished with much fanciful fanfare and grateful tears in Jan, 2009, when "we" inaugurated the "First Black American President," thereby reifying yet another mythic, egalitarian trope constituent of the"American dream": Anyone can grow up to be president!

WWH Citizens' Dispatch, March 31, 2012: God Damm 'Em

The Constitution forbids any "religious" test for aspirants for public office.

I always thought that it forbade requiring any particular "religious" affiliation as a qualification for office...

But now I wonder: Why couldn't we PROHIBIT those 'religious' folks with leadership roles in their "churches" from BEING ELECTED to public office, since their FIRST loyalty will NEVER be the State, but ALWAYS to their fucking "gods?" They CANNOT serve botrh "god" and "mammon"; it's the plainest KIND of conflict of interest.
