Greetings from Calico Blackie!
As usual, our politicians are busy playing the “I’m less of a dick than the other guy” game rather than addressing real issues.
I guess it’s easier that way.
Both political parties conveniently forget about the skeletons in their closets in a rush to paint each other out to be crooks.
All this shows us is they’re all crooked up and bought off and we’ll be stuck once again in November with making a choice between Al Capone or Bugsy Siegel.
Remember, back in the 20th Century, Al Capone ran Chicago and Bugsy Sigel was the kingpin in Las Vegas, Nevada.
But, just like it is today, the REAL gangster power was centered in New York City. Oh, Al and Bugsy were powerful men, but ultimately, they answered to The Godfather in New York, just like the powerful men in Washington, DC today have to answer to their Godfather in New York on Wall Street.
Anyway, back to the “I’m less of a dick than the other guy” idea…
Check out this story:
Romney Adviser: “Obama will say anything to keep job”
“A top adviser to presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney said Sunday that recent allegations coming from rivals in President Barack Obama’s campaign were debasing the office of the presidency.”
“Speaking on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Romney senior adviser Ed Gillespie said the GOP candidate scheduled five interviews with major broadcasters on Friday to clear his name, after an Obama campaign official suggested he had committed a felony by listing himself as CEO of Bain Capital when he no longer carried leadership responsibilities at the private equity firm.”
Remember the crimefighter Eliot Ness? He helped Chicagoans rid themselves of Al Capone by busting Capone for tax evasion.
Well, it seems as if nothing has changed and our cities are still fighting gangsters. Did you see this story?
Goldman Sachs fires back at Reno in bond battle
RENO, Nev. (AP) – “Attorneys for Goldman Sachs and Co. say the city of Reno shouldn’t seek millions of dollars in damages from the bank through arbitration and needs to go through federal courts.”
“The Reno Gazette-Journal reports the court filing comes after the city filed a claim with the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority in February. It sought arbitration against Goldman Sachs over $210 million in bonds the city issued with the bank’s help.”
“The special Auction Rate Securities market the bonds were issued on seized up in 2008 after big banks stopped supporting it.”
“Reno now must pay 15% interest on the bonds plus millions in fees on debt it issued for an events center and railroad project.”
“Goldman Sachs argues the city’s only trying arbitration to circumvent a statute of limitations.”
The gangsters never really care who they screw, as long as they get the money. Nothing new with that.
They don’t care about our country, our cities or We, the People.
It’s all about the money.
So, while we’re getting robbed by the banksters and our politicians are fighting over who is the bigger dick, what is new with “Occupy”?
They’re still fighting the good fight.
From Occupy LA:
“Words can’t even explain what down town Los Angeles was subjected to last night. It all started with some sidewalk chalk.”
“Prior to artwalk we had has 11 arrests in two weeks for chalking, and near 20 in the past month. Last night there were 11 arrests for chalking. The only person arrested from occupy was the first person who was arrested for chalking.”
“LAPD responded to the chalk with 60+ officers. Some people who were arrested for chalking last night did it in spite of watching others get grabbed around them. They were not occupiers, but they could see the tyranny and were not going to stand for it.”
“As the arrests grew, so did the police presence. As the police presence grew so did the crowd around them of angry bystanders who had seen people being arrested for chalking on the sidewalk, or who had themselves been shoved by the very aggressive police.”
“The main stream media is blaming occupy, saying LAPD was standing off with occupiers.”
“That is false.”
“In fact, many occupiers left after the first arrest, and headed to a fund raiser we were holding nearby.”
“The people who were attacked by LAPD at artwalk were just the residents and visitors of Los Angeles.”
“Around 9:40 PM LAPD mobilized around 150 officers at 5th and Spring Streets. By then there were only a few occupiers, mostly media such as myself, and hundreds of angry LA residents.”

And, while some cops were busy beating down dangerous chalk-armed citizens of this country, what else was keeping the cops busy in Southern California?
From The Orange County Register:
Revelers bare bottoms at trains while deputies watch
“Though smaller in numbers and more subdued – likely due to constant police presence – the revelers who turned out to bare their bottoms at passing trains Saturday still seemed to take delight in partaking in the annual ritual.”
“The Mooning of the Amtrak, an event in which celebrants line up with their backs to the railroad tracks parallel to Camino Capistrano and then expose their rear ends as trains roll by, drew about 30 participants showing their backsides to train passengers at any given time.”
“Saturday’s crowds were sharply down from the thousands that turned out in past years.”
“In 2008, the event swelled to close to 10,000. Police shut it down that year after witnessing public sex acts as well as urination and defecation. The following year, with new ordinances and more law enforcement, attendance dropped to about 1,000. Crowds have declined since.:
Calico Blackie says:
Oh no! Not that! We can’t have thousands of people congregating in one place having fun. They might urinate and defecate and ENGAGE IN SEX ACTS, and you know the cops and their masters NEVER do things like that!
Put a stop to it now.
The story continues with:
“Local lore states that this famously unofficial event was born when a patron at Mugs Away Saloon, situated on Camino Capistrano about 50 yards from the tracks, vowed to buy a drink for anyone who’d cross the street and moon a train.”
Calico Blackie says:
Good thing there weren’t any “Occupiers” there. The cops would have shot an awful lot of rubber bullets at those bare asses. And who knows, maybe the occupiers might have even urinated a bit! THE HORROR!
I suspect the real reason the cops originally cracked down on people who showed their ass to Amtrak was because the “powers that be” can’t stand to see their slaves getting a little vicarious enjoyment out of life.
We’re not here to have fun. We’re here to make money for the banksters. Those same banksters and politicians that gathered for their annual “love-in” at Bohemian Grove this past week.
But, it was ok. There may have been “sex acts” but there was no urination or defecation among the guests for an entire week, because they’re all full of shit.
Bohemian Grove fuels protests
“A small group of protesters turned out over the weekend to protest Bohemian Grove. They are a small group but their charges are hefty. They blame the government for everything, from crime to conspiracy, but often have trouble getting along themselves.”
“Those who stood guard at the gates of Bohemian Grove had high hopes – that those attending the all-men’s retreat would pay attention to their concerns.”
“I am here at the Bohemian Grove event to protest against militarism and against imperialism,” said Charles Sullivan, a protester.”
“What’s happening here behind me at this place and others like it, decisions are being made that affect all of us, yet the people in there answer to none of us,” said protester Brian Hall.”
“Certainly they came to the right place as far as trying to reach the rich and powerful.”
“The more than 100-year-old annual conference has been attended by everyone from Dick Cheney, Newt Gingrich, Henry Kissinger and most male members of the Bush family.”
“Bohemian Grove is located on the outskirts of the tiny California town of Monte Rio and for more than 30 years protesters have also been coming thru here to have their messages heard outside the gate.”

Speaking of men’s entertainment and butts…
It was announced yesterday that Jennifer Lopez (J-Lo) will be leaving American Idol.
I guess she’s leaving it all behind her.
I mean, she’s alright, but is this really more important than the fact we’re seeing our freedom slip away at the hands of the banksters and their bought-off cronies in Washington, DC?
Is American Idol really more important than the fact our police are willing to shoot citizens with rubber bullets because they exercised their First Amendment rights?
OF COURSE NOT! Most people know that, but they feel powerless to do anything about it. Either that, or they’re content to go along for the ride and see what “shakes out.”
Well, unless you’re a bankster, take heart because we are coming in ever increasing numbers.
With every layoff…..
With every broken campaign promise…..
With every middle class family made homeless…..
OUR NUMBERS ARE GROWING.
Whether you support the Occupiers or not, remember…
We’re on YOUR side. The PEOPLE’S side.
LET’S TALK AND UNITE!
OCCUPY WALL STREET
TAKE BACK THE PARK
TAKE BACK OUR COUNTRY FROM THE BANKSTERS
