The Little Jazz Baby

Good day, readers!  I have a huge announcement just in time for Christmas!  My new blog, The Little Jazz Baby, is now open for business and looking for readers and subscribers!

Jazz Baby

If you love old jazz, art, fashion, silent film, and the 1920s in general, this blog is for you.  And for those of you who have missed the weekly feature Silent Star Saturday on this blog, it’s making a comeback on The Little Jazz Baby, so stay tuned, folks!  I promised you (repeatedly :p) that this was coming, and now it is here.

Please, please, please drop by and tell me what I am doing wrong and what I am doing right.  I really appreciate feedback from you guys.  You’re the best readers ever.  I’ve missed you!

Coming Soon On the New Blog

  • Silent Star Saturday (as promised over and over again for the past several months)
  • Special offers/giveaways/promotions  I am still in the planning stages on this one, folks.  I am planning on perhaps featuring one star for the whole month and giving away memorabilia related to that star.  And I am looking for anyone who would like to have their projects promoted.
  • Jazz Age art, music, fashion, and more Posts and resources for all things related to the 1920s.  This could even include modern things that have a Jazz Age flair to them…good, bad, or indifferent.

If you have any suggestions or questions, please feel free to get a hold of me at any time and left me know what’s up.

America, Will You Please Stop Celebrating Genocide?

I know that this is going to make me look rather Anti-American, but I do not care.  This country has celebrated genocide and slavery for far too long.  It needs to stop now.

We prop up dictators for decades and then decide that we are against them for whatever reason several decades later.  When we want to sever ties, we enter their countries and bomb so-called military targets that wind up being full of innocent civilians, many of them children.   Those of us back home are peddled the BS line that military action was necessary to save American lives.

Better them than us, right?

As I sit here and type the media is busy trying to get us to support possible wars with Syria and Iran.   It does not matter who wins the election next month, one or the other will go beg Congress to declare war.  I hope I am wrong, kids, but I have a sneaking suspicion that I am right.  Trouble has been brewing for a while now and our so-called representatives will lie to our faces (again) to get us to support dropping bombs on people.

And when we aren’t at war with foreign countries, we support state-sponsored executions of people who, more often than not, have not committed murder.  Don’t you think it would be fair to know that the people we are putting on death row are people who are actually guilty of the crimes they have been accused of committing?

This country, this continent, has always had a bad habit of executing innocent people.  Just take what we are celebrating today as proof of that.  We are celebrating the life of a power-crazy genocidal maniac who exterminated an entire race of peaceful people.

Christopher Columbus was no hero, ladies and gentlemen.  He and the Spaniards destroyed countless human lives because they wanted land and gold.  The people who were already living on the land that now belongs to Haiti and the Dominican Republic were beaten, raped, enslaved, and killed because of greed.  And all this was done in God’s name, by the way.  Christopher Columbus and the rest of these savage beasts fancied themselves “Christians.”

And we celebrate this genocide every year without fail, and look at indigenous peoples here like they are crazy when they go out to protest.

America, let us please forget Christopher Columbus the hero of the seas and remember Christopher Columbus the killer of natives.  We should instead celebrate the culture he found so inferior and fought so hard to get rid of, don’t you agree?
