In another dazzling display of
culturally entrenched racism against the First Peoples of Turtle
Island Ted Nugent called us “Unclean vermin” who “don’t
qualify as people.” He went on to say that there is a lunatic
fringe of hateful, rotten, dishonest people that hate happy,
successful people. Wow. Then there’s wannabe president Michele
Bachman who has a great idea for the Central American children, who
seek refuge and a new, better life than their war-torn homicidal
country’s can give them. Put them in labor camps says Bachman, then
they learn American, work and everybody wins. *choke* SNORT! What?
In the case of Nugent I am the first
person to speak up for freedom of speech but that works both ways
Teddy boy. You are a vile, stinking, poisonous mass of diarrhea, a
hypocritical blowhard who was very willing to take money from unclean
vermin who don’t qualify as people. Well money talks but so do
disgusting jerks. ‘Nuff about that cesspool of hatred.
Now for Mrs. Bachman; just when I
think she can’t possibly say nor do anything to top her already
despicable actions she does it again. History would truly repeat
itself were this inhuman scheme come to be. Indian boarding schools
and the inexplicable horrors that happened to children away from
their families are still very much a part of our culture, one we are
trying desperately to change. The U.S. agenda to wipe us out
completely failed so they killed the Indian to save the man. We were
being trained in white man ways to enter indentured servitude and
supposed to be grateful for it. Now Bachman would impose that on
thousands more little brown children.
I can’t imagine the horrors they
have already endured before they got to the border which, thanks to
Gov. Rick Perry will be lined with Texas National Guard bristling
with body armor and heavy weapons against small, weak, hungry
children most of whom were lucky thus far not to die in the desert.
My heart explodes with angry love wondering how the children’s
parents could send them away so young. Then I remember it’s the
U.S. Drug wars that are responsible for the endless violence that is
daily life for them. It is with desperate love that those kids came
to be here; their families want what we all want, a better life for
our children. It’s that simple only it has been made out to be a
crisis of made up magnitude.
Minnesota’s wolves have under attack
since the DNR lifted their Endangered Species status in 2012. I
believe special interest groups have funded this bill with the intent
to develop natural resources (destruction!) and they can’t do that
when there are endangered species in the area they want to scourge
for limited resources. Iron sulfide mining, tar oil sands and
pipelines all want access through wolf territories and they want it
now. Well, I am a part of a small, fringe lunatic community who most
emphatically DOES NOT want them to be happy.
This year the Minnesota DNR has upped
the licenses to 3800; 300 more than last year. They keep calling it a
‘harvest’ which to me similar to ‘friendly fire’ in that its
words used to disguise the blatant horrible truth. Wolves and
military people are being murdered. One more thing, stop that story
of the two wolves because it perpetrates the myth of wolves being
capable of being evil and they are not. Wolves are family-oriented
intelligent animals who have more right to be here than any of us.
I’m going to put my name in for the wolf hunt lottery. Of course I
won’t use it but I hope to stop anyone else using it. It’s all I
have right now, until I get up and out of my armchair activism and
spring into action. In the meantime I will continue writing. Love
your dog? Save a wolf.
I saw some smoke signals that Jim
Northrup, beloved columnist, author, poet, playwright, artist,
Vietnam Veteran and just a plain great man has written his last
column of Fond du Lac Follies. I always smile when I see him
and always will but I won’t miss him as much as yooz might cuz he’s
in my short Indian neck of the woods. Chii Miigwech Mr. Northrup for
your stories and humor … see you at the Risky Raccoon & Kasino?
I’ll buy you that bingo packet no one ever did. Word.
Well I’ve had some good adventures
and most of them involved eating and the natural result of having et.
It will have to wait until next month though, I used up all my column
space ranting and raving again so yooz will just have to hold it.
Heehee! Buns don’t fail me now!!!
