He cares

The Bush junta was asked
about
just what
they were doing
for
Black people.

The President is looking
forward
to
visiting
Africa
was their
earnest response.

Paper says today
that the
African jaunt
is
being
postponed.
Iraq is heating up.
And
the
President
wants to stay close to home.

Seems that Bush
would
rather
make war
(blood lust -oil lust)
and
not
go to Africa
after all.

So much poverty
and
an
AIDS epidemic.
Where's the fun?
Where is the action?

Premature Fascism


Maybe 700 people
from
mostly Moslem places
of
the
heart ache,
were
arrested
yesterday
in
LA.
Handcuffed
stuffed into cattle-car-like rooms,
(It's a movie town -- remember Schindler's List?)
they were reporting to the INS,
they had some
easy to fix
technical violations
and
they were deported
to
Arizona.

Their
families
their
friends
went into the LA streets
by the thousands
screaming
the
truth.
"My father is law abiding
and
terrorists would never report
to
the
INS."

And the excellent
Ramona Ripson
of
the
ACLU
pointed out that
even
Iranian Jews
were being stuffed
into
those
racist cells.

They are letting them out
today.
It was an act
of
premature fascism.
Bad PR.
Better to wait
till
a
war
or another act
of
terror
before the last roundup.

Then Declare Martial Law

Next time
they
will also
deport
the
demonstrators.

-----
American Samoa
which
is
as much part of America as Los Angeles
banned
any one
of
Middle Eastern origin
(Arab rein)
from entering
their
Island
of
paradise.

American Samoa
just lifted the ban
because
a
Congressman complained
the he was of
Lebanese
roots
and
that
he
could not go to Samoa.

Premature fascism strikes again!

Maybe
next time
they will
also
stuff that Congressman
in
a
slow train
to
Arizona.

Trent is gone.
His
Lott
in
life.

Bye Trent,
Hello hypocrite!

Retro?


Most Americans
think
Bush
has not made his case
for
war.

Some ask why aren't more people
in
the
streets
protesting?

Todd Gitlin
Ellen Goodman
blame the current antiwar movement
for
being
a
retro
60's
retread.

The
60's slogans
are
too
simplistic for now.

Saddam is no Ho
and
Americans
(however mistakenly)
blame Saddam
for
9/11.

They
want a movement
with
complex
(if boring)
slogans.

I'm different.
I'm
amazed
that so many are demonstrating
against a war
with
Iraq.
Because the war hasn't started.
Because there is no draft.
Because the climate is so repressive.
Go back
to
1964
when there was a war
when there was a draft
when the country was much more hang loose.
And
you'll find that the largest antiwar demo
was
6,000 strong
in
NYC!
We get more than that in Portland
NOW!

By all means
hurt a tyrant's feelings,
Say Saddam Sucks
Say it loud
but don't run down what we've done
and
don't
tell George Bush
that we
are
pushover
has-been
relics.
He's supposed to be scared
and
cautious
of
the
Vietnam Syndrome.
Remember
that's
us.

Utopian


I
went
to
a gathering
of
Jews & Moslems.
The
group
has been meeting
for
quite some time.
It's very sociable
and
warm.
People are on the level
and
dinner is always served.

Last night
an
Israeli
and a
Palestinian
offered
six points
for
peace.
A
practical
give and take
compromise
solution
to
the
conflict.
Two states.
Share Jerusalem.
Oppose terrorism.
Not fight over the Temple Mount.
(Who wants priests and animal sacrifice anyway?)

Everybody liked it.
How could they not?
In
a
mad
fanatical
world,
reasonable compromise
is
revolutionary
and a
relief.


Everyone was glad,
its nice to agree
with people
you
like.
(And the food was great.)

But
I came away
with
ghosts
of
cynicism
screaming
at me.

"Shmuck,"
they
declared.
Don't you know
that
bloodthirsty warriors
and
terrorists
have
marked the cards
while
loading the dice?

They are rounding up Arabs
in the
USA
They are planning
a
war with Iraq.
They bomb
synagogues
and
sky scrapers
and
hotels.

There will
be
no peace.
Demons
of
death
would be
way too
bored.
And where is
the profit?
And where is
the power?

But said I,
it
doesn't cost me anything
to
be
an unrealistic
utopian
of
hope.

To actually stand for something good.

Why
should
I
be
an
undertaker
in the
graveyard
of
civilization?

Trent is nuts.

Did you see
Trent on the tube?
He was interviewed
on
the
Black network.
He was asking for forgiveness.

He is going bonkers.
The guy
has
been
split from his center.
Cut off from
white support
(He revealed their secret code.)
and
never having
Black,
he's
running like a mad dog
in
the
flaming jungles
of
his
burning brain.
Telling
Black people
that
his
voting record
is
not
an
accurate indication
of his
actions
or
feelings
because
his
favorite color
is
now
Off-Whitey
and
he once hired
a
Black person.

Has he cracked?
Split in two?
Trent the racist, see how he votes.
Trent the neo-intergrationist,
see how he feels.

The
next stage
of
Trent's
madness
will find him
on the streets
of
Harlem,
beating a drum
and
shouting
Malcolm X's autobiography
at
subway commuters.

A Loving Spoonful

Zal Yanovsky's
magic guitar
once played
in a
magic band
at
a
magic time.

Today's
NY Times
obituary
says
Zal
dropped dead
at
57
the owner
of
a
successful
restaurant
and
a
bakery.

Do you still
believe
in
magic?

Bagel haters


Anti-Semites that love
Israel?

The
world is a dream
in
the
mind
of
madness.
Nothing makes sense.

Desire
not
logic
is the cut
and
paste
of connection.

Why did many Jews
love
Billy Graham
till they heard
the
secret Nixon tapes
and
knew
he
hated them?
Because
Billy
is pro-Israel.
And so are
all
the
Christian Zionists
who
when they say
Israel
always say
"we."

These Christians hate Jews
and
believe
sure
as
shooting
that
God will
destroy
them
and
make the world
100%
white bread eating
Pat Boone loving
and
totally
Christian.

They've been tipped
on the
divine double cross.
First God again sets the Jews up in Israel.
And then he sets
the Arabs against them.

But False antichrist messiahs
will come along
and
preach
peace
between the cousins,
because
Jews
and
Arabs
come from the same family.

But there has to be a war
where everybody is destroyed
except
the
bagel haters.

Jews
and
Arabs
getting along
isn't in
God's dictionary.

The Christians must urge the Jews to fight.
(Onward Jewish soldiers.)
No compromise on Jerusalem.
No compromise on settlements.
No compromise on refugees.

White bread and mayonnaise
will fight
to the last Jew.
(And then convert him.)


Many sophisticated
world weary
Commentary
reading
Jews
fall for this con.
They
really
want
their 2000 year old inquisitional persecutors
to now
love
them.
A regular Hollywood happy ending
to
the
Holocaust.


My grandmother
off
the
boat
from
Minsk,
without a word of English,
a regular green horn she was,
would have sniffed
these goyim out
in
ten seconds flat.
She had only one question.
Are they good for the Jews?

Jail House Bully

North Korea
is
really
developing
weapons of
vast
badness.
And they have
nothing of value
to
steal.
No oil.
Nothing but starvation.
But
they could blowup
South Korea
which has
tons of
American investments
and
massive
American military presence.
The N.K.s
are
dangerous crazies.
No point giving them
a
hard
time.

Iraq
has
something
worth
stealing.
Iraq
has
tons of delicious
oil.
But no weapons
of
endless
evil.
Iraq is a pushover.
Certainly we
must
attack
Iraq.

When I was serving a prison sentence
in
1969
for opposing
war
racism
and
boredom,
I
observed the skilled behavior
of
jail house
bullies.
They knew exactly
who to
pick-on
and
who
to leave alone.
They acquired
their skills
on the streets
of
Oakland.

Where did Bush learn this game?
At
Yale?
Or
at his
father's
knee?
