Edgar “Yip” Harburg - Stamp - 2005

A wildly playful writer who penned antic verse (and choice romantic lyrics) for the musicals Bloomer Girl, Finian's Rainbow, Jamaica, The Happiest Girl in the World, Darling of the Day, Flahooley and the film "The Wizard of Oz," Harburg (1896-1981) was also fiercely supportive of liberal social causes. 

His political feelings often seeped into his shows, offering views on slavery, freedom, women's suffrage, class, the arms race, war and more.*

Fans know that in addition to standards such as "Paper Moon," "April in Paris" and "How Are Things in Glocca Morra?" he wrote socially-potent lyrics for "When the Idle Poor Become the Idle Rich" (about class distinction, from Finian's Rainbow), "Leave de Atom Alone" (about nuclear arms, from Jamaica), "Napoleon" (about the fleeting fame of celebrities, tyrants and politicians, from Jamaica ), "The Eagle and Me" (the expression of a runaway slave in Bloomer Girl)….

Finian's Rainbow was the first Broadway show in which black and white performers danced together.

The Yip Harburg- Harold Arlen classic "Over the Rainbow" was named the number one film song of all time by the American Film Institute; in 2001 it was chosen as the greatest song of the 20th century in a Recording Industry Association of America/National Endowment for the Arts poll….

*Blacklisted in Hollywood and TV from 1950-1962.


Tell the Christmas Myth a Trillion Times

Tell the Christmas Myth a Trillion Times

Listening to commentators on church services or even news reporters stating things of the Christ Myth like “Jesus was born in Bethlehem” matter of factly, which of course these days is an off limits place full of Arabs in Israel etc.

There is the old Doctor Goebbel’s line about telling a lie often enough that the lie becomes the truth at least in a fascist state setup.

But standing back and being looked down by Ph.D.’s in Theology by the mere fact that I can read, the new testament in particular, and see the gaping holes in facts and timelines etc., and the Doctors of Divinity merely and or mildly presenting tolerance of me in the presence of vested education degrees. 

Sheepskins do not necessarily represent intelligence, merely the assets to sit in class for so many number of years and being a certificate of attendance as an actual substitute for learning.

The real tragedy I see this Christmas is how lukewarm real Christians give to the devotion and reverence that used to be given as the fear of being in the presence of a warlord god ready to strike non-conformists for the least infractions of the army rule book of Christianity set up by the Emperor-god Constantine in the fourth century of this common era as a means to glue together a falling apart Roman Empire.

That if the Christian myth has been told a trillion times over the centuries, the myth more likely to the young at Christmas has been told at least three trillion times around some kindergarten table in the repeating the stories of surrogates of fairy pervert pedophile elfs, like Santa, who sees you every day and everything you do. 

And you as a child get rewarded for conformity to the army manual myth of who or what the commander in chief says Christ is that day, week or month. Love this day and then go to holy war for centuries in the name of the Prince of Peace.

I think the perversion of the story of Jesus and his human golden rule teachings starts at Christmas and progresses until the Spring with the sado-masochist torture of Jesus in time to be merged with the Easter Bunny myth. The Santa Claus thing is an almost human story. The Easter Bunny is pure animus.

And the lovely little baby in a manger morphing into a bloody corpse on a cross as the only means of war that a warlord mean desert god says is the only means for the rabble to salvation, to be drafted into the Empire’s army to save the Empire and the Emperor etc. is a story that Mel Gibson took from the Anti-Semitic boutique designer gospel of John used in producing his movie blockbuster Passion of the Christ (myth). 


Birth of Jesus Entertainment - TV - 2015

Christmas Shows on TV – 2015

What struck me as weird as I watched the first few minutes of the midnight at Christmas mass at the Vatican was that 90% of the faithful were snapping pics of the very long procession of deadweight bishops, cardinals and of course Pope Francis. In my day such a procession would have produced a lot of crossing of one’s self and return to kneeling after a blessing of holy water.

They had some green Hispanic priest narrating or I should say reading boiler plate propaganda and in a few phrases of Spanish as the pope seemed to have to smoke the immense altar at St. Peter’s, smiting evil spirits to go away – quite ironic in the presense of the hundreds of bishops and cardinals in the front row – you know evil spirits and all that. The whole thing a contractual NBC/USCCB production of liberal eastern media reinforcing the party line of rule of elites in the United States.

Then I watched a few minutes of that drunk Timothy Dolan do his Ralph Kramden common vulgar man imitation in yellow robes, floating through the newly refurbished 180 million dollar St. Patrick’s Cathedral. Would have been cheaper to tear it down and rebuild it right instead of every 20-30 years trying to reinforce the inferior stone inside and outside, supplied by Tammany Hall btw, and spend more tens of millions to clean the architectural mess that only is made to look like a true gothic cathedral - illusion, delusion(?). 

And of course, once off the ground at arm's length inside St. Patrick’s, the real stone disappears and the plaster and paint over chicken wire surfaces mask the inferior workmanship of a large parish church being used as the seat of the very large evil fat-assed archbishop who would rather spend large volumes of money on cathedrals than keep parishes open for the faithful. ...

Cecil Rhodes being erased from Oxford - No longer PC in revised Educational History

The nineteenth century robber baron Cecil Rhodes who controlled Africa and dictated Africa foreign policy for the British Empire, gold, goods, exploited workers is being airbrushed out of Oxford per the morning Bloomberg News.  Flaming Cecil as they called him behind his back (don’t ask, don’t tell) is no longer PC at Oxford University where four statues of the once great man are being removed to warehouses for the moment. Rhodes scholars such as Bill Clinton will no doubt have to rewrite their resumes with a footnote of a Congressional Scholarship to Oxford? Something out of George Orwell's 1984 where the members of the party no longer in power and or alive are erased from official history. Oxford does not think that a real racist past of the university or country is conducive to minorities going into deep debt to get a sheepskin from just another college diploma factory in Britain.

Tax Free Bigotry Belt of New Wave Fascist Christianity Seeking Right to Discriminate on the Taxpayer’s Dime

Campus Pride Shame List - Rated XXX in Hate - Toxic to Humanity GOP Based KKKristianity Taught Here:

“Religion-based bigotry is careless and life-threatening,” said Shane Windmeyer, Executive Director of Campus Pride. “LGBTQ young people face high rates of harassment and violence, especially our trans youth and LGBTQ youth of color. The schools on this list have requested Title IX exemption based on religion-based bigotry targeting LGBQ and transgender people for no other purpose than to discriminate, expel and ban them from campus. It is shameful and wrong.”

Hope Hope Comedy Specials in Heaven

When I die and go straight to heaven, I am going to reserve some time there to watch the 10 DVDs of the Time-Life Bob Hope Collection of Bob Hope TV Specials on NBC.

I won’t have to pay 5 easy payments of $19.99 each because everything in Heaven is free just like the Democrats promise or so I am told.

And don’t forget the free 11th DVD of the Dean Martin Roasts.

As 98% of the people I see on the 30 minute long infomercial advertisement are already there in heaven and I can just look them up in person as well - that's why they call it heaven.

That and there is no point to watch them now at home – because as my millennial son says “Who is Bob Hope?” (That and what's a DVD?) LOL

Guns Guns Guns - Bat Shit Crazy in Tucson Arizona - Shoplifter shot in parking lot by customer packing a gun.

Customer follows alleged shoplifter out of store and shoots suspect.  SMH

I used to buy gas here in the nineties. So the idea that somebody would take the law into their own hands – that owning or holding a gun is somehow some sacred tome of righteousness is an offshoot of the worship of the vague right to hold arms in the Second Amendment and the NRA’s lobbying efforts to sell guns to fill fear needs created by the gun industry in America through evil twat’s like Susan and Wayne LaPierre – Roman Catholics in good standing in Great Falls, Virginia.

Below comments better than I can write.

TUCSON- A shoplifting suspect is in the hospital Sunday afternoon after a citizen shot him.

Around 2:30 p.m., the male suspect entered the Circle K near Grant Road and Oracle Road. Tucson Police believes he shoplifted then fled the scene.

A citizen followed after him. Both were involved in an altercation and the citizen shot the suspect.

The suspect was transported to Banner UMC with life threatening injuries.
