Anonymous Koch Brothers Supporter Attacks This Cultural Christian’s Religious Freedom




Any long term reading of this blog has a sense of who and what I am about. I am A-religionist – without religion and or dogma in any formal sense. In other words, my place of worship of the divine is not listed in any “yellow pages” (an obsolete term?).

Following this blog you will know how I have painstakingly tried to deprogram myself from twelve years of Roman Catholic brainwashing from my youth.

As a tangent to that, I have been very active in blogging about the secret buggering cult of the RC priesthood and especially that of my native Philly and all the recent four archbishops there and their ambitions first, rather than truth and justice.

BTW the parish I grew up in and the high school there are now defunct. They are in the inner city and the RC church in Philly no longer seems to administer to the poor in terms of material or spiritual needs, that is if you have a zero balance in your check books or a poor credit rating on the new Global Corporate (Dehumanized) Spreadsheet.

Another of my support blog articles are for the civil rights of the LGBT community and their struggle for basic human freedom and human rights in the United States. This in solidarity with friends and family members over the years that have not had these basic rights.

Aside for my religious beliefs and or non-beliefs, the essence of my spiritual and or soulful sense is expressed here especially when the new right wing GOP “Christian” religion with it hate and bigotry and economic inequality are touted on the public stage by public figures and or their stooges – touted as something Jesus taught – which he did not.

This Cultural Christian tries to adhere the basic notion of the Love thy Neighbor and try to Care for you Neighbor teachings of Jesus who IMHO was only human in a supreme evolutionary sense but definitely not a divine being and unlike the Emperor /god /saint /general Constantine, the founder of the Roman Pagan Army “Christian” Faith.

Also, in this blog, I have illustrated other faiths as part of trying to piece together the pieces of the puzzle of a new global culture emerging in a new global town square sphere of cultural consensus.

So, I was mildly annoyed yesterday when someone hiding behind the “anonymous” label attacks me for my simple asking of the question – “What is the Koch Brothers religion?” – it is a question that is not be found on the Internet – an idea and or fact vetted out of the equation of discussion with John Birch shadowy Cult Figures who peddle right wing influence in this country to the detriment of the common good IMO.

So if commenter 7, “Anonymous 3:05 PM” from December 29, does wants to man up or woman up and put their name on their slurs against my practice of both First Amendment Rights of free speech and religious freedom, so be it. 

But can you imagine the impact on American History if phrases like “Give me liberty or give me death!” were in the final analysis attributed only to “AnonymousVA1775” – LOL

I woke up this morning remembering the slimy shot for Anon305 which brings me to the fact that I have checked this before and with my “What religion is the Koch Brothers?” article I have close to six thousand hits and it does not (strangely, oddly) show up on my top ten blog items of all time.




I know that Google which I believe controls my blog stats is always changing around the so-called screening algorithm that decides what gets choice place on Google Searches. I did not know that perhaps sensitive comments about John Birch Cult Leaders could be buried in terms of stats and not appear on blog stats published to me by Google???




…between my Pat Roberson white trash Green Bean Holiday Casserole Recipe and Quaker Cross – A Symbol For Compassion blog articles listed as 6320 and 5759 hits respectively on that inaccurate Google Top Ten Blog all-time list sent to me everyday.

Italian Governors Cuomo (NY) and Christie (NJ) Vow to Protect Corruption and Cronyism at NY-NJ Port Authority


Pro-Corruption I-talian Governors Christie of New Jersey and Andrew Cuomo of New York


The governors of New York and New Jersey, defying the unanimous votes of both their Legislatures, on Saturday rejected a bill aimed at curbing political interference and patronage at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, more than a year after lane closings on the George Washington Bridge set off a scandal that looms over the agency to this day. 

Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo of New York, a Democrat, announced the veto of the bill just hours before a midnight deadline and in the face of an almost unheard-of bipartisan support. 

Because the authority is governed by both New York and New Jersey, approval is needed by both legislatures to make changes in its structure and operations, on Saturday night, the anger at the governors’ rejection of the bill was felt on both sides of the Hudson River.

“It’s appalling and disappointing,” said Assemblywoman Valerie Vainieri Huttle, a Democrat of Bergen County, N.J., who sponsored the bill in Trenton. “Today’s actions clearly demonstrate both governors want to continue the same old scandalous problems at the Port Authority.”

Canadian Born out of Wedlock (bastard) of the Year 2014 - Ted Cruz





Which leaves us with the question – Was Ted’s Mom legally married to Rafael Cruz Sr. on December 22, 1970?

How long was Eleanor Darragh Wilson in Canada prior to Ted’s birth?

Was the reason for a quick trip to Calgary the means to get what looks like a legitimate birth certificate.

Anglos and Hispanics have entirely different points of view on legitimacy. Being born out of wedlock is more an English common law term that recognizes DNA connection but probably denies a claim on the father’s estates and titles etc.


That in many Hispanic cultures, if your supposed biological father puts his name on your birth certificate, you have a father (period.).  

GOP Bugger (Bugeye) of the Year 2014 – Mitch McConnell




Hide your Kids, dogs and cats…and turtles too!



McConnell delivered a red meat speech to the conservative activists, pummeling President Obama and Democrats for having done “next to nothing for the little guy,” failing working families, and flaunting the Constitution.

“The president of the United States is treating our Constitution worse than a placemat at Denny’s,” McConnell said.

He ended with a pledge to live up to conservatives’ expectations if he is re-elected to the Senate and the Republicans take control of the chamber.

“If I’m given the opportunity to lead the U.S. Senate next year, I won’t let you down,” McConnell said.


Falling Down Drunk of the Year 2014 – John Boehner (Used Car Salesman)






John Boehner and his tea party cohorts buoyed by the billions of dollars from the Koch brothers and the worst Supreme Court decision in history (or 2nd worst) are on the brink of shutting the great American experiment in self-government down. They no longer have to depend on you for campaign money and we already know that voting machines are very open to hacking. This has been proven over and over. Throw in laws aimed at stopping Democrats from voting and districts so gerrymandered that they almost can’t lose and you have a group that has no reason to do what voters want, because they really barely need them.

FOX NEWS Baltimore Manufactures “Kill A Cop” Incitement on Rupert Murdock, Roger Ailes Racist Propaganda Network






What you are hearing there is a protester in Washington, D.C. shout the following chant:

We can't stop!

We won't stop!

'til killer cops are in cell blocks!

Turned into this racist incitement to violence:


We can't stop!

We won't stop!

So kill a cop!

By cutting away from the video mid-chant, FOX's segment paints protestors as explicitly calling for the murder of police. They've depicted a non-violent protest about accountability for police brutality as a bloodthirsty mob.

Splainin Staten Island to a Stranger – Eric Garner’s Turf

Eric Garner Death Site - Bay Street
Google Street Map


It is hard sometimes to explain Staten Island to strangers. The area where Eric Garner was brought down to keep the streets clean of poor people selling loosie cigarettes or joints is a seedy area about three blocks from the Staten Island Ferry and Borough Hall.

Downtown Staten Island if you can call it that is a bunch of public buildings, small businesses, a Technical High School, an academic High School, courts, all up against the side of a hill, small mountain, steep as any street in San Francisco.

It is an area of high foot traffic during the day from those various high schools and courts. The Ferry building itself is a major transportation hub, the primary one, and second to that is first stop away from that transportation hub to areas south and west along Bay Street, the main coastal road to the Verrazano Bridge and Victory Blvd (the old Philadelphia Pike) - where Eric Garner was hanging out in his local free lance business activities.

Eric Garner was hanging around a seedy urban strip mall with hair dressing shops, fast food, Gypsy Cab Co., etc. and the center of activity across the Tompkinsville Park.  

This used to be the center of an old forgotten Victorian era town when Staten Island was still mostly farmland and small burb towns until 1964 and the opening of the Verrazano Bridge.  Even though looking seedy and having the feeling of a slum, the average house in this neighborhood, probably an old wood frame shingled house is $400-500K among the many apartment buildings. Location. Location. Location.

Across the park is the local Welfare and Food Stamp Office for the Borough in an old car dealership building on Bay Street.

Victory Blvd. Off Bay Street - Tomkinsville Park - Bus Stop
Google Street Map

A whole lot of activity during the day all about. And a lot of police in police cars patrolling from the nearby 20th Precinct Building on Richmond Terrace – same street – Bay street with Borough Hall (local City Hall - Marriage Licenses, building permits etc.) at the Ferry Terminal the dividing line on that main coastal road on the North Shore of Staten Island.  

An area you might walk through if you want to, safe enough, but after 5 PM you don’t want to walk around the area.

A lot of police and firemen live in Staten Island. No indictment was possible on this Police home turf in their burbs and $700K+ houses beyond this coastal slum town by the Ferry.

Pan Around per Google from Eric Garner’s run in with the former mayor’s policy to sweep all poor people off the streets from 9 to 5 in this local hub of public buildings and government functions.

Bishop Robert Finn Got Raw Deal in Corrupt Missouri State Grand Jury Maze?




I begin to realize why the Vatican has stood by their man in Kansas City Missouri on charges of failure to report suspected child abuse by his personal friend Father Ratigan.

Apparently the sheeple in the Kansas City Diocese also understand how corrupt a local Missouri Grand Jury can get when its members are picked by experts in personalities and types. Not to mention ethnic names that might indicate whether a Juror is a Catholic or Protestant etc. And of course these days the “none of the above” atheists, agnostics and secularists populate the juror’s pool. 

Bishop Finn was no doubt indicted on heartland anti-Catholic sentiment with that likely heavy Protestant and “other” type of Grand Juror placed there by the local prosecutor.

So when some ambitious prosecutor from the white burb part of a Missouri County wants to convict a sitting Roman Catholic Bishop on some piddling child abuse misdemeanors as an example, it is no big deal to indict anyone on any trumped up charges or not indict a favored native (white) son, as in the recent St. Louis County Prosecutor Robert McColloch’s long, long, long term probe into the innocence of a Ferguson Missouri cop Darren Wilson ( which was a forgone conclusion – wink – nod ).

Spoon feeding jurors and evading questions from the jury if the Supreme Court can trump some obsolete fugitive slave type shoot to kill law is otay okay.  That and picking a white nine panel and black three grand jury with a requirement of 9 votes to indict and or not to indict. No sweat. So sweat indeed Bobby and Kathi and Sheila.


Bishop Finn will not doubt be moving up to rank of archbishop soon, that is no doubt in the works. Just a matter of time. God’s laws are certainly superior to man-made and easily manipulated secular law as in Missouri.

No Rush to Grand Jury Judgment Under Bob McColloch’s Instructions to Incompetent Dream Team Kathi Lynn Alizadeh and Sheila Whirley


McColloch - Wilson - Brown - Ferguson Missouri


They took their time and even quoted obsolete struck down by the U.S. Supreme Court statutes that give cops a license to kill especially if perps are unarmed and fleeing. McColloch’s predicted months long probe ending up even being many hours late when the Grand Jury had supposedly already finished on Monday.

Missouri’s obsolete statute presented to the Grand Jury sounded more like something out of Jim Crow or the pre-Civil War Fugitive Slave laws protecting the property of plantation owners of Missouri – as pointed out by Lawrence O’Donnell on MSNBC last night.

Blacks at best in Missouri can only get 3/5 entitlement to any law, past or present, on the books there. Less if McColloch & Co. are orchestrating an intentionally mismanaged, botched hack job on protecting Male White Entitlement in this old borderline slave state. 


The steamy evening, with a temperature of 84 and 72 percent humidity at 8 p.m., took its toll on the early energy level. Adding to the discomfort was a heavy thunderstorm passing through.
A pair of protesters supporting Officer Darren Wilson walked along West Florissant shortly before the rain struck. Many in the crowd shouted at them, and police quickly removed them by squad car.
Another protester, Mubarack Sulamann, traveled from Memphis to Ferguson to peddle T-shirts that read “Justice for Mike Brown.” The cost? $10.
The first of two marches in Clayton was held in the morning as the grand jury commenced its work. But County Prosecutor Bob McCulloch warned that it won’t finish its task any time soon, despite numerous calls by protesters and some public officials for speedy action.
“Our target date is, hopefully, by the middle of October,” McCulloch said. “I certainly understand the concern, but we won’t rush it through. In the long run people, at least a majority of people, will appreciate the thoroughness.”
Grand juries work in secret. The grand jury meets in his office behind secure doors in the County Justice Center, across South Central Avenue Carondelet Avenue from the St. Louis County Courthouse. Reporters have no ability to see anyone entering or leaving the grand jury room, or how they get to McCulloch’s office from outside the building.
Handling the case before the grand jury are assistant prosecutors Sheila Whirley, who is black, and Kathi Alizadeh, who is white. Alizadeh, with 27 years experience, is the regular homicide prosecutor. Whirley has the grand jury assignment and 18 years experience.
McCulloch declined to discuss any evidence, but elaborated upon his decision not to rush the investigation.
“Some people say we are rushing to judgment and others say we are dragging it out,” he said. “We will do this as expeditiously as possible, but certainly not in any haphazard manner.”
As for October, he said, “It could be longer than that, or shorter than that. I doubt any sooner than that.”
Outside the Justice Center, about 50 protesters marched and chanted in the 7800 block of Carondelet Avenue. One held a sign saying, “Recuse McCulloch.”

The only tense moment was when Pattie Canter of Clayton walked to the protest area carrying a sign saying, “My family and friends support Officer Wilson and the police.”

A. G. POWELL Bicycle Patent No. 452,649. Patented May 19,1891.




The Wheel and Cycling Trade Review 21 Nov. 1890



A book called THE INDUSTRIES OF PENNSYLVANIA, published circa 1882, on p.126, contains the following passage:

"David Pettit & Co., Ornamental Iron Works, Nos. 1130 & 1132 Ridge Ave. One of the most important manufacturing establishments in this city and which has by the excellent character of its production become well known throughout the city, is the Ornamental Iron Works of David Pettit & Co., which were originally established ten years ago by Hanson & Kirk, who conducted the business until 1876, when the firm became Hanson & Pettit.

In Nov., 1879, Mr. Frank Pettit became a member of the firm, and since then the firm transacts business under the title of David Pettit & Co.  September, 1880, the business which had formerly been carried on at Twelfth and Willow streets, was removed to the establishment formerly occupied by Robert Wood& Co.  The works are divided into several departments, each of which is provided with all the latest improved machinery, appliances and tools, driven by steam power, and furnishing employment to a number of skilled workmen.  

The productions consist of all kinds of Ornamental Iron Work, Statuary, Fountains, Chairs, and settees for Lawns, Stable Fixtures, Weather Vanes, and Hitching-posts, Staircases, etc.-a specialty being made of Railings for Cemeteries. 

A distinguishing feature of the work being the rich, elegant and unique designs, most of which are original with the firm.

A large business is conducted by the firm, as they are constantly
originating new designs which meet the popular tastes, and are largely in demand all through the country, Canada, the West Indies and other points.

The members of the firm are David Pettit and Frank Pettit, natives of Salem, N.J., who bring to bear upon the business sound judgment and rare business ability. This establishment is one of the leading representative manufacturers of this special line of goods in the city."

The Shunning of Bill Cosby in America – Reasserting White Cultural Standards in the Media?




Perhaps this current mess with Bill Cosby is a mistake. Or PC has caught up to the past when there pretty much were no rules when it came to sex and or sexuality in America.

I seem to think that social networking among other things takes a lot of shared ignorance out of the closet so to speak and shed some light on matters in a modern global capacity.

That sins like masturbation on the Church list, mortal sins mind you, that they are pretty much considered body function anymore and not sinful but just something normal in the life of the man beast race that remains half ape and is still half imagining the other half is angel. Which is why the guys in dresses at the Vatican don't have a clue about anything sexual - still preaching from the same old everything is a sin textbook as genuinely "moral" - yeah right.

Getting back to Cosby. I always thought he was a grade A phony. If you look at the old “I Spy” detective shows where he was a so-called breakthrough part for an African American on prime time TV in the mid-1960s. The show was on at 10 P.M. when school children were supposed to be already off to bed in Beaver Cleaver white America. 

If you see these old shows, they are poorly written and full of a lot of direct and veiled sadistic violence. Not good fare for mom and pop watching them. But then again few choices then for three TV channel America.

I remember a show with Cosby being a gym teacher which actually fit in with his Temple U degree in Philly for P/E.

Over and above his moderate visual success on TV was his dirty comedy records which to many was his real source of income.

I remember around 1971 when he was on the David Frost show making a big deal about retiring from Show Business and going off to Massachusetts to get his PhD in education. Why? Because he wanted to be an outstanding model for his race and in education etc. PR PR PR  BS BS BS Whatever became of his academic career? But the bait and switch entertainment marketing scam worked well to create demand so well that Frank Sinatra, a has been night club singer retired two or three times before his many comebacks. Whatever.

Then there was that bizarre Cosby fantasy show of a successful Harlem Doctor and his cute black middle class gentrified family that it was somehow successful even though I had no desire to watch it. I knew black people and I knew Harlem and the last place any successful black people I knew in New York - they did not want to live and or work in Harlem.

Which kind of leaves us now with the present and all these bimbos coming out of the woodwork wanting an out of court settlement from a filthy rich black entertainer who for better or worse has not managed his private tastes too well. Or these women, groupies in their younger days or whatever never heard the adage that in getting ahead in Show Business is the same as in Wall Street – it is not who you know, it is who you blow to get ahead in life.

I have often thought that the death of the hypocritical White Town Square standards in America was the start of the culture wars in the 1980s forward to establish those old standards that were pretty much set by the local town newspaper owned by the local white establishment.

That when someone like Madonna came onto the scene with her skank nouveau marketing model, that the old white standard bearers, the newspapers and national TV media could not shame her or shun her or make an example of her slutty appeal to the rising younger female buying demographic market.

That now with six corporations controlling the top tier (1%) of the information and tech pyramid, I look at this current Bill Cosby sideshow with mild disinterest but realize that Cosby is collateral damage of sorts of the six year plus Fox News TV and Limbaugh radio hate campaign against Obama and trying to reassert the old white standards in the obsolete in a global town square sense, of the old American Town Square. The white GOP’s Neanderthal base is going to lynch this guy, in virtual-osity, in the social media. 

So much for doing their Ted Cruz - Joe Wilson style of protecting our white women in the burbs from “those people”. That Rafael Cruz courtesy of the Heritage Foundation endorsement of Cuban white hatred of all blacks including black cubans - and Joe Wilson's "You Lie" white trash talk to the WH Nigger from the inbred crowd in South Carolina has a butterfly affect on the all Racist Revival of the old loser Confederate States even in a global age of tech and information movement. 

I say this because today, even the casino in Arizona run by the Tohono O'odham Indian nation outside Tucson is cancelling Bill Cosby’s scheduled performance in February. That the nation that sells tobacco and liquor untaxed by the Feds and caters to gambling addicts are pimps of sorts or good capitalist businessmen depending on your POV – but the point is that they feel comfortable enough in judging Bill Cosby in the social media maelstrom that eats and chews ppl out faster than whatever.

The media sucks. 

Good luck Bill in your virtual retirement as an ideal model of whatever it was that you were in your fifteen hours of fame.

George Washington –Typical Lazy White Farmer - Living Off the Welfare of His Slaves




I am amazed how it took George Washington and 2,000 slaves on his plantation to make a comfortable middle class living for himself and his wife and her two brats from a previous marriage.

The History Channel shows how George raised sheep for wool and had an untaxed by the gubmint, largest whiskey still in America and as if he did all the dirty grunt work to eek out a comfortable living for his lazy white ass and his lazy white wife and lazy white children. Mansion (Plantation) trash.

The adage about how slaves, blacks, African Americans are so lazy over the centuries covers the truth of from 1620 onward of the lazy white fucks of Virginia and the South and parts North who all lived on the sweat, pain and agony of the black man, woman and their children and children's children.


As for being a good general, Washington was too lazy and or just too white (wink, nod) to surrender to the British. Too dumb to know when he lost?

And most importantly of all did not want to pay his bills in London for all the luxury items exported to Mount Vernon. Deadbeat founding father. 

And too lazy to work - living on the welfare of his slaves.

Muslim Prayer Service at National Cathedral Washington DC – Friday November 14


photo: Guardian UK


The monotheistic religionists like the Episcopalians are way ahead of the curve in sharing church property with other faiths. It is a diverse country last I heard.



Planners had said they hoped Friday’s service at the historic cathedral would foster more understanding and acceptance between Christians and Muslims around the world.

The prominent Episcopal cathedral often hosts national events, such as presidential funerals, and has hosted Muslims at various interfaith services in the past. But planners say this is the first time the cathedral has invited Muslims to lead their own prayers there, which they call a “powerful symbolic gesture”.

As the service continued, Rizwan Jacka of Islamic Society of North America called the cathedral a house of prayer for all people.

Starbucks Joins Monsanto’s Suit to Queer Up Food Labeling Law in Vermont





The legendary rocker announced that he's boycotting Starbucks over the coffee monolith's alleged involvement in a lawsuit in Vermont regarding the labeling of genetically modified ingredients.

"I used to line up and get my latte everyday, but yesterday was my last one," Young wrote on his website earlier this week. "Starbucks has teamed up with Monsanto to sue Vermont, and stop accurate food labeling."


Young's referring to a law Vermont passed last spring that will require food labels to specify whether they're made with genetically modified ingredients by July 1, 2016.

New Ted Cruz Coloring Book Falsely Depicts Him as Right Handed - Out or Still a Closet Leftie?






There is no shame in being left handed. Long gone are the days of left handed people being verbally abused as using the (Left Hand) “hand of Satan”.

Or is the comic book / coloring book image a false bearded one since it prominently displays his ring finger on the left hand, implying right handedness. Watch on right wrist - another leftie indicator.

This, when in fact the ring finger he uses is on his right hand in real life (in photos) indicating left handedness - (a closet leftie perhaps? - with all these false depictions and in the minds of little children no less - shame shame).

Coded image of just another bible belt redneck “false messiah”?


…the firebrand Republican senator from Texas is depicted as a kid-friendly “passionate fighter for limited government.”

This week, the publisher released a new eight-page supplement to the original children’s book. It’s titled “Ted Saves America” and includes images of the tea-party darling flying like Superman and riding an eagle.
