The Complete History of Adam Panflick is becoming a Kindle series

Amazon.com: The Complete History of Adam Panflick Book One eBook: Stephen C. Rose: Kindle Store:

'via Blog this'

And it is free at this point to Kindle Prime users. This is a reasonable way to do a serious work of memoir-fiction if you, like me, have little taste for the itinerant life of an author wed to a publisher. I like people but I long ago learned to detest such procedures. And if you do the math the financial return as a Kindle writer is sufficiently good to make it competitive with the trade market, quite apart from the problem of getting a serious work published these days. And in point of fact I fully expect that this will one day be a book with covers, whether created commercially or self-published. Even if you don't download it you can take a look - as the image below suggests. Actually it may be a film as well. Or something like that. Since we don't know, really, what's coming.

Give the man (that would be Romney) 100 points. Subtract one point for the number of times Romney has lied about President Obama. When you get to zero collect your Free Romney Amnesia Coupon. Walk to precinct on election day. Vote for our dear President. If you remember Romney for more than a week, you need help beyond my capacity to deliver.

Our Government Should Lead in Becoming an Open Book

Why Are There So Many Leak Prosecutions? | Secrecy News:

'via Blog this'

Secrecy is the apple in the Eden of governance. Eat it and everything nearby eventually dies. Secrecy enables fear to become the free weapon of the powerful. It is the essence of our past history. Secrecy is the aphrodisiac of being on top of things. It gains followers. Disciples. Jesus was parlayed into being Lord of a church he never wanted to create by the attribution of secrecy to him. And yet it was a lie. The powerful are never bothered by the Wests and McCarthys because they are mere flies around the sweet smelling glue that imbeds secrecy. Everything becomes a secret eventually. It is sick, nauseating, deleterious, harmful, evil. Evil is what kills before the time. There are secrets of commission and secrets of omission. The holders of the keys heed not words such as these. They see their authors as fools or little children. I will take the latter designation but not the former. I have consorted with the powerful. They are like you and me. The biggest truths are not secret. Any child knows them. Eyes that see through perfidy detect them on the other side of the curtains erected by the secrecy-keepers. What does not tolerate leads to death. What does not help leads to death. What does not grant to all the rights vouchsafed to all leads to death. What makes an idol of power and of power's brother secrecy beings death on as sure as those whose bodies fill the ground of Iraq. Is it mercy or perversity that enables those who have knowingly killed for secrecy and its false premises to sleep well at night? America should become the first open book nation. Open the vaults. Live with the consequences of what any child can see..

The No Accountability for Attack Ads Thing is A Media Smoke Screen


The notion that Citizen's United means there is no accountability 
for the perps of horrendous attacks
translates into predominant media silence about
the known sources of attack ads
It's a smoke screen
We will know that an attack ad came from this or that Super PAC

It takes a scintilla of effort to determine who attacks come from
Media should flag the Super PACs 

There is a higher justice to which these sad operations are accountable
There is also justice we the people can apply
Votes yes but also
we should keep an account of attack ads 
For every 1K the perps spend
we will unearth one nauseated grass roots Republican
to create a video of alienation
from the lynch party these Super PAC Koch Rove folk are attempting 

This could be the year when attack comes back to bite the attackers

If the Court cannot be just
the people can

Ah Wal-Mart We Barely Knew Thee

At Wal-Mart in Mexico, a Bribe Inquiry Silenced - NYTimes.com:

'via Blog this'

But now the NY Times has bared a lesson that ought to tell us all
that cover-ups are just as likely in the halls of corporations
as in  governments
and that is why all other things being equal we should honor whistle-blowers
not  excepting the likes of Bradley Manning

Tell me who should be behind bars
the Wal-Mart execs who in substantial numbers
deep-sixed a massive bribery action
or Bradley Manning who merely flagged  the banality of
our dying military
our dying spend it all in order to spend more stupidity
and so forth

If you say spare one
I say spare the other

A Pulitzer for this longest consecutive story you will ever read
in the NYT

Let there be more

Mildred Purse: "Anything Cheney subscribes to is deleterious to our global economic future"

U.S. Markets Set to Stumble - WSJ.com:


Unfortunately the entire world economy save for those of Capri and Mackinac Island are substantially doomed. We live wrong. We are not meant to be spread out. There can be no healthy sprawl-onomics. There can be no healthy car-onomics. There can be no healthy oil-onomics. There can be no war-onomics. You can simplify this by the Law of Cheney. Anything Cheney subscribes to is deleterious to our global economic future. I shall have more to say, no doubt. Oh, the reason why these economies are the problem? They are not economical..
