About this Blog

The Loose Nukes is an attempt (by people who should probably be under 24 hour supervised psychiatric care) to bring attention to somewhat serious issues like nuclear weapons, militarism and other seemingly random, unrelated issues through vain attempts at social satire and other futile gestures of total contempt for a fading empire that continues to employ nuclear weapons, the ultimate instruments of an erectile dysfunctional national security state, as instruments of foreign policy. OK, you probably get the idea by now. We are obsessed by run-on sentences, peace and justice, having fun, and don't know when to quit. At any rate, we don't think nuclear weapons are a very good idea, and are most definitely unhealthy for living things. We also think the folks running this Empire should just get over it.

And now the NOT SO FINE PRINT: Read further at your own risk... and remember, DON'T PANIC; this is all SATIRE at its worst (or best, depending on one's mental state)! And some of the stuff in here is even true!!!

No room for Drones in this Dream

Dear Friends, 

I spent my day with approximately 7000 fellow resident's of the World House (in Seattle, Washington) celebrating the birth (and incredibly full life) of a great peacemaker and possibly the greatest prophetic voice of modern times.  I have hesitated to share this visual as I do not want to be disrespectful in any way.  That being said, the contrasts between these two people are staggering.  For President Obama to invoke Martin Luther King Jr. in any way after the past four years is unconscionable.  To earn that Nobel Peace Prize President Obama needs to start living out the words he speaks; otherwise it is merely empty rhetoric.

Happy Birthday Dr. King.  We will hold Obama's feet to the proverbial fire.  He will either live up to his promises (such as those in his famous Prague speech on nuclear weapons) or get burned.  We will uphold the rich legacy you left for us.  We are in it for the long haul.

There is certainly no room for drones in Dr. King's dream!

In Peace and Toward a Just and Peaceful (Nuclear Free) World,
