[Editor’s note: “I looked through the list of keywords and a strong percentage of them are words that I’ve used in various posts on my site and others over the years, in articles both critical and in favor of governmental or business policy.

It would be difficult to write about politics, current events or publish a news story without the normal and casual use of most of these keywords. I can only conclude that we’ve arrived at a state of almost unimaginable paranoia and the country is finally, irredeemably insane.

If the US was a magazine I’d promptly cancel my subscription.”

Below the fold is a comma delimited list of the keywords from the 39-page “Analyst’s Desktop Binder.” Feel free to copy and paste them into your blog or use them as tags in your posts. You can also use them in family letters, grocery lists, birthday cards or anything you want to draw attention to.  Enjoy.  Bob Higgins] (more…)

Guernica

Today or yesterday is an anniversary of sorts, a day of commemoration, a day to reflect on what it is in man that dooms him to endless repetition of his mistakes.

Maybe it’s just a day to spit on the sidewalk, hitch up your pants and say, “same shit, different day” and let man worry about himself.

Sixty nine years ago Hitler and Mussolini decided that propping up their soul mate Francisco Franco would offer them a great opportunity to test out all the new high tech military hardware they had amassed.

This was bad news for a Basque city called Guernica and 1500 or 6000 or 16,000 of it’s inhabitants. The number is uncertain, record keeping tends to go out the window when the entire universe is a collage of blood and body parts. (more…)
