The newest country to enter the world is called Lakota, which happens to be a well known Native American tribe. They have recently renounced their citizenship with the United States and have decided that the treaties their people signed with the white man are “worthless words on worthless paper.” They used this as a starting point for creating their own country within a country. The Lakota say the treaties have been “repeatedly violated in order to steal our culture, our land and our ability to maintain our way of life.” Withdrawing from the treaties was entirely legal, the Lakota said.
The Lakota have also been getting around to the embassies of as many countries as possible in order to meet and greet and to let them know about this new emerging country. I am extremely interested in seeing just how well this new fledgling country does in getting started and also how the United States will deal, react and treat them. The Lakota say that they have 33 treaties with the U.S. who have not lived by any of them. They are saying that they would like to LIVE not just survive, crawl and become mascots for the white mans sports teams. I can understand as I too wish the black community could live not just survive.
They will issue their own passports, driver’s licenses and the living in this country will be tax free for anyone who decides to live there as long as they renounce their American citizenship. It took the Lakota 33 years to get the ball rolling with enough of their own people’s support just to get their own declaration of independence from the U.S. They said that it takes at least that long in order to combat years of colonialism. This new fledgling country will include parts of Nebraska, South & North Dakota, Wyoming and Montana.
Interestingly enough Russia has decided to put into action the process in which they can now recognize the new Lakota government. This is in response to the U.S. help with Bosnia Putin declared “two can play this game.” He also says that the Lakota Sioux Natives are in the best position to succeed seeing as they have never accepted payment for their lands that the U.S. has taken estimated at more than a billion dollars. This will give the Lakota people the needed recognition which will probably lead to even more recognition leading to the annexation being complete and them probably regaining their land.
I have yet to see this story on any news outlet and am extremely interested in the United States’ position and how they plan to deal with this situation. This could potentially be a serious thorn in their side if the Lakota are successful in gaining control of the land encompassing all of the states listed above. Thus making it so that the people who choose not to become a citizen of Lakota or give up their American citizenship will be forced to do a mass move out or maybe be put onto reservations which would be poetic justice. What happens when people start choosing to live in Lakota, will the government want to get retribution on those people if they decide to come back to the U.S.? There are so many questions surrounding how they will operate within the U.S. yet outside of it.
Will America wage war against them? This is the tribe that defeated General Custer, all though we know that this is a far cry from the army of today with all the high tech weaponry. I doubt anything will come of it. The Lakota government will continue to be an unrecognized state. Look at Palestine, even Vatican City has more recognition than them. So this tells you exactly what chances the Lakota has of winning over most nations in the UN who are either fiercely loyal to the U.S or afraid enough to not cross them. It is safe to say that barring the Lakota make any serious waves; the U.S. won’t even raise an eyebrow in regards to anything they do.

Well I guess the importing; outsourcing pain has come home to roost so to speak. Recalls of our children’s toys are on the rise. It seems that toys coming in from China are tainted to say the least. Lead had been the big worry but now your kids might be ingesting the date rape drug GHB. What’s next we will have an influx of wonder woman dolls that are the heroin instead of heroine. The only people we have to blame are ourselves for allowing our lawmakers to sanction exporting all of our manufacturing to China and elsewhere.
Yet this is not a phenomenon that will happen over and over since we are in such a consumer driven society. We are out buying our children every little bobble that catches their eye. Never has society as a whole been so seduced by materialism. And it is this materialism that is making our kids sick, brain damaged and dead. The amount of name brand garbage that is pushed on kids from the moment they are old enough to set eyes on the television numbers in the millions. From Dora the Explorer to Elmo, our kids are bombarded like being in a game of dodge ball.
All I see and hear from magazines and mothering shows is everything that you need to buy for your baby, child, pre-teen, teen and young adult. I receive a popular baby magazine and one of the feature stories is baby must haves. It is just a large advertisement for all the unnecessary items that all the different companies are pushing. Yet the one thing that you don’t see is stories that feature items made in the US because that would be few.
The latest toy recall is the Aqua Dots which allows kids to stick dots together using water making fun shapes and pictures. Well it seems that if the kid ingests the Aqua Dots they will turn into GHB through a weird chemical reaction in the body. The children that have ingested these have either gone into a coma or died. The list for these recalled toys is probably longer than Santa Claus’s list. There are all manners of toys on the list from baby beds due to lead to older kids building sets.
Is our relationship with the Chinese toy manufacturers more important than our children that our own government won’t shut this obvious hazardous situation down? Because it seems to me that these companies who have their manufacturing going on over seas should be getting fined. But, I have always felt that if a company wants to bypass American workers so they can go cheap and dangerous they should be fined to bring that crap back into the country. I understand that this is extremely controversial but we are effectively un-employing American’s in order to maximize profits.

Duane Chapman also known as Dog the Bounty Hunter apologized for the repeated use of the dreaded N word in a tirade that was sent to the National Enquirer. He was taped urging his son to dump his Black girlfriend worrying that she would spill the beans on him and his firm’s use of the N word to whom else but the National Enquirer. He now comes out and apologizes for the whole shebang. People should take his apology with a grain of salt and know that from the crap he said, he is not at all sorry, just sorry that his stupid ass got caught!
I am no longer shocked by anything that these racists say or do anymore. There is an ever growing trend in the media right now to talk about racism and how horrible it is, yet these media conglomerations and their parent companies are just more of the problems that subjugate Blacks with their hiring practices and promotion of bigoted racists. Dog didn’t promote himself up the television ladder nor did people such as Michael Richards, Don Imus or Ann Coulter plus whomever else you can name in the media. How can anyone be naïve enough to not realize that this type of behavior has been going on since we were dragged here in chains? It has not been limited to entertainment, we have scientist, doctors and presidents, and in fact it is in all facets of our government.
Duane the dog talks about how he has the utmost respect for Blacks. Uh huh, that is why he calls us all niggers, yep right. So then I guess Hitler only had the utmost respect for Jews when he referred to them as Kikes and decided to put them in concentration camps. Why is it that as soon as the racist is ousted and caught in the act they act as if the people that they are subjugating are somehow being held in high regard? This is absurd! What will happen after this, the answer is nothing of course. Dog will of course continue his show and if not you will have a bunch of White people to run to his defense and cry freedom of speech etc., then find a way to get him reinstated. They will do just what they did with that racist Don Imus, yet again showing their blatant disdain for Blacks and the subjugation that they themselves are helping to propagate.
What else can be said about what is happening, actually what has been happening forever in this country? We are divided and will continue to be so as long as one set of people holds all the power all the while subjugating the ones who don’t. But, until the subjugated wake up and realize “hey, I’m being subjugated over here” nothing will really be done about it. It is just like in the times of slavery, half the people will always see things the slave master’s way and you still here the same rhetoric out of our Black brothers and sisters, “we can’t leave massa, where we gone go that’s better than this?” Well it seems we will never know until we all wake up work together to get there.

As I am watching CNN all I can think about is why OJ Simpson doesn’t just go hide in a cave somewhere. Maybe he can hide out with Bin Laden it seems no one can find him and that would be exactly what the doctor ordered. I am just sick to death of seeing, hearing and just knowing anything about this idiot. He is becoming as bumbling and stupid as Homer Simpson, I wonder if they are related. But, at least Homer has some redeeming qualities.
Well anyway the story goes that OJ somehow knew that these fellows were staying in the Palace Station Casino, who had some memorabilia of his that included his Hall of Fame certificate and a picture of the running back with J. Edgar Hoover. He went there with some guys he just met at a wedding reception cocktail party to go and take what he says was his. The room had a few collectors in it including Alfred Beardsley who had testified in OJ’s civil trial. Mr. Beardsley said that the story is pretty much as OJ tells it except there were guns in which Simpson said, “I didn’t see anybody with any guns.”
Is this guy for real? He knows damn well that after he didn’t get convicted of allegedly murdering his wife and waiter Ron Goldman that the public, police, the victims families and hell only knows who else would love to see this bumbling idiot in prison, jail or even dead. He just continues to put himself in the weirdest and stupidest situations I have ever seen. By the way he acts you would think he was a 15 year old teenager who doesn’t have much life experience and continues to make bad judgments. A friend says that he continues to want to be a player totally involved in the high life even though those days are done. There he is on all the news programs cheesing for all to see just like a big ole stupid looking joker. He has come out with a stupid book that people are saying sounds like a confession hidden behind a “what if.”
Now I don’t proclaim to know whether this idiot did any of the things that he is accused of from murder to robbery but I do know that his stupidity makes my skin crawl. I can only take stupidity in small doses which I get plenty of just from daily life. OJ is constantly giving me a stupid overload. All I can say is please OJ I need a break from your idiotic behavior, its bad enough that I still have Paris, Brittany, Nicole and Lindsay. For whatever reason it is easier for me to ignore those idiots’ antics but OJ, there is just something about that man that makes it hard to deal with. I think it’s the fact that he used the Black communities hope for him by pathetically pandering to our sense of racial solidarity during his trial and no sooner than he got off he went right back to the stupidity that got him in that situation.
So please OJ for the love of whatever just leave us all alone and keep to your self. Find a personal brain like Bush so that you won’t have to ever do any thinking which at this time doesn’t really seem to be a problem.

Ben Stein is in the news today making comments in support for Senator Craig. He states “Senator Craig has been the victim of a police lynching. A party that believes in individual rights should be rallying to his defense, not making him walk the plank.” Now I am a fully on board when someone is “really” being abused by the police, but come on, Lynching! That is so condescending to the thousands of Black men who were lynched in the name of racial hatred. I am appalled that Mr. Stein feels it is appropriate to use a term that was born out of horrible circumstances to describe something so freaking trivial. Next Ben will swear that the poor Senators who he feels are being unfairly judged by their obvious unsuitable behavior are now victims of some undercover gay senator holocaust or maybe genocide. Please Ben your killing me.
Then to say “a party that believes in individual rights… What fantasy land are Ben and Senator Craig living in that he was a victim of anything other than his closeted man lust. The Republican Party doesn’t care for anyone’s individual rights; well maybe that of big business, but if they did why then, do we have so many Black men such as Sean Bell being gun down by the police in a hail of fifty bullets. Now that is what I call a police lynching and where was the Republican Party to protect these victims who are the constituents under their supposed protection. What reason does the Republican Party as well as the Democrats get behind for these blatant cases of “real” lynching, well it was due to “contagious shooting,” yep that crap actually flies with them. Maybe this is why the government took so long to get around to doing something about the people who were suffering after hurricane Katrina. They were too busy trolling around in men’s restrooms and parks or underage chat rooms.
I don’t understand Ben Stein’s grievance he says “Here’s the deal: Senator Craig went into a men’s room at the Twin Cities airport. He entered a lavatory stall. He tapped his foot. He may or may not have reached his hand down under the lavatory partition to pick up a piece of paper or to make a signal. That’s it. That’s the whole thing. There was no sex act of any kind.” Well I don’t think that cops are supposed to engage in a sex act with the perpetrator in order to ascertain that he should be arrested for “soliciting” sex from the officer. I think it is the soliciting part that gives that fact away; which from what “my” dictionary says is to ask somebody for something or to offer sex for money. Now he did a combination of the two.
Ben also states that “If a police officer can wreck a man’s career over this trifle, then we might as well not have a Constitution or a Bill of Rights.” Uh, what? For one thing this statement would assume that the police officer knew that the man in the other stall was Senator Craig and he then put his Machiavellian plan into the works grabbing the Senator and so began to put the screws in. Then you also have to wonder if this cop was so gung ho on screwing up the man’s career why then didn’t he run this information right to the press after the arrest? Wouldn’t that do more to ruin his career than to sit back in the shadows doing his job (and I am no fan of cops) and let the newspaper come upon the information two months later.
Wow, that cop was really hell bent on getting Craig alright. Come on Ben, I mean when Sean Bell was killed the cop claims they made eye contact and that was enough for him to know that Sean knew that he was a cop. Now if that was this officers story that he looked at him and somehow knew that the Senator wanted sex, I would be right there with you guys, but he went through a whole ritual of how you approach someone for a gay tryst. I mean would you come to a guy’s rescue that saw a lady on the street, walks up to her and says hey pssst, then pulls out a twenty dollar bill and waives it at her. She pulls out a badge and waives it at him. Would Mr. Stein claim that this man should be left alone since there wasn’t any sexual contact? Now Ben is this a modern day lynching of that poor man who is probably going to lose his wife, family, job, a gob of money and maybe his freedom? I think not, she didn’t force him to solicit, so I guess he, you and definitely Senator Craig should do what you always want everyone else to do and take responsibility for your own actions.
