The Ballad of Ira Hayes - Johnny Cash

Misty LynnThe Ballad of Ira Hayes by Johnny Cash

Published on May 28, 2015
 I was looking up information on Ira Hayes for a project when I found this song by Johnny Cash. I felt immediately and deeply uncomfortable - is this any way to talk about a national hero? It seemed exceedingly dishonorable to discuss Ira's service hand-in-hand with his alcoholism, and to reify a mainstream narrative about Indigenous men (that they are commonly drunk; that it is acceptable to call a serviceman and veteran Drunken "Name" if they are Indian). At the same time, I was intrigued by the way Johnny captured some of the nuances of Ira's story. Being uncomfortable with this song and the narrative representation of Ira Hayes, I decided to spend more time with it. I have no love for war, and I'm not traditionally "patriotic" except that i am proud to be American Indian and I believe we must honor our veterans. So this video is a tribute to a complex man, with a complex song, by another complex man.

Four Strange Fractal Postcards

Share your strangest news with your weirdest friends... with help from my latest anomalistic art...

Strange Object
This fractal nebula-like object has some very strange linear features at it's center, which are of interest to scientists. The interest for most will be the fascinating region at the top. What is it, we wonder? Is there life there?

The Fold
The Fold is one of the strangest objects in outer space. A sheet of energetic plasma has folded in on itself. Scientists don't know what to make of it.

Greenie, Close Up!
A zoomed in look at The Green Anomaly, which is a fanciful fractal rendition of a strange and energetic nebula-like area deep in outer space. Very deep.

Purple Anomaly
The Purple Anomaly is a fanciful fractal rendition of a strange, energetic nebula-like region located far out into the depths of outer space.

Zero Tolerance for Peace At Drone Convention.

This little demonstration at a meeting of murderers shows exactly what the political dirtbags and military industrial complex think of human life.

Well, I don't think much of their lives, either, especially the pompous prick known as “Representative” Dana Rohrabacher of California, shown refusing to do his sworn duty near the end.

The Congressional Unmanned Systems Caucus (better known as the Drone Caucus) led by US Congressman Buck McKeon (R-CA) hosted a drone convention in the Rayburn Congressional building in Washington DC on September 21, 2011. The convention was a showcase display of glorified killing machines that have reshaped the entire notion of warfare, and CODEPINK had no choice but to take action and remind those at the convention what important information they were missing.

We should, at best, lock these people up. Every damn one of them.

Here is a snippet from Zen-Havens article,
At Drone Convention, Zero Tolerance for Peace

By Medea Benjamin

When are we, as a nation, going to have a frank discussion about drones and remote-controlled killing?

One might think that such a dialogue could take place when thousands of people come together, once a year, at the gathering of the Association of Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI). Wrong.

But AUVSI, the lobby group for the drone industry, brooked no dissent at its August 6-9 Las Vegas Convention. When I, as author of a new book Drone Warfare: Killing by Remote Control, tried to rent a room at the Convention Center to give a presentation on my book, AUVSI vetoed my request.

When I tried to register as a journalist, I was told that I did not meet their criteria, but they refused to say what that criteria was. And after registering online as a normal participant and paying the $200 fee, when I appeared to get my badge I was yanked off the line, surrounded by police, and told I would be arrested if I set foot in the Convention Center during the duration of the gathering.

Keep reading here, it gets worse.

Bear Baiting - South Carolina’s Shame

To all South Carolina crackers... fuck you. Got it? Sick, depraved sub human crap, you all are.

Uploaded by  on Aug 24, 2010
 Bear baiting, also known as "bear baying" by some, is a cruel spectator event where participants release their dogs to attack a tethered, captive bear, who has had her claws and some of her teeth cut off, leaving her defenseless.

Outlaw Bear Baiting in South Carolina!  http://www.causes.com/causes/40328-wspa-put-an-end-to-bear-baiting/actions/1668713
To: Nikki Haley, South Carolina Governor and the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources

Defenseless bears have no rights and are attacked for the cruel pleasure of spectators. Bear baiting needs to be stopped. We demand that South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley outlaw and criminalize bear baiting in the state to put an end to this practice.

Bear baiting (also called bear baying) pits a declawed and defanged bear which is chained to a stake against hunting dogs that bark and bit at it while hundreds of people watch. Spectators consider this event entertainment and hunters consider this as a training regimen for their animals. As countries around the world ban events such as bullfighting and cockfighting, Pakistan and South Carolina (USA), are two remaining places that haven't criminalized the practice. Sign the petition today to help put an end to this "sport".

Which CEO made $5 million stealing your kid's lunch money?

Published on  Jul 19, 2012 by 
ALEC is working to ensure that public education dollars get diverted to private profits. Their approach is working -- for them. Not so much for the students who pay the price in the form of a subpar education and poor performance.

So disgusting. I am especially horrified to see that my state, Connecticut, has accepted this utter garbage.

If only the revolution would start...
