Taking His Lessons from the Big Boys

November 22, 2006

But this turd muncher is all small time.

He does have a gift!

He’s in charge of providing housing for low-income residents, but he’s also driving a new Hummer sport utility vehicle. It was paid for with your tax money.

Not exactly a talent, per se. So, is stealing from taxpayers a natural or acquired skill?

Kurt Creager even trots out Katrina preparedness in his defense.

“A lesson we learned from Hurricane Katrina: you have to be prepared. You hope something doesn’t happen, but as a property manager, we have to be prepared.”

But my favorite quote of the day:

“We’re in positive cash flow. I’d say we’re healthier than General Motors and Ford Motors combined. Frankly, the issue has to do with accounting rules.”

Hmm, let’s see:

(-1) + (-1) = (-2)

Voila! It all makes sense!

The transpareny on this guy is set at about 1.

He’s a Brownie in the making. Put him in charge of FEMA!

(Take a close look at the picture. What are the odds he’s got a ponytail?)

When the armed insurgents attack your house and break down your door, if you are a 92-year old woman, what can you do?

Use the shotgun your grandaughter gave you.

If you’re part of a narcotics team executing¬†a¬†night-time raid on a suspected drug den, make fucking sure you have the right house.

Can’t wait to see if they give these assholes officers a medal.

Checks and Balances are Vital

Because if the FBI decides it needs a scapegoat and you’re convenient, you might end up like one of these four men.

Of course, official covert action is nothing new. There has always been evidence that there was CIA ‘involvement’ in the JFK and RFK assassinations, it’s just been ignored.

Chicken Little

If the prevailing beliefs about Peak Oil, which oil men like Clueless and Self-Dealing, et al possibly use as their basis for the invasion of Iraq and everything they do to support it- such as eroding civil liberties (this single minded pursuit of giving oil importance above everything else, humans and their rights included)- prove to have a false premise (after all, these scares have been with us before, and time and again we fall for it), then they’re going to have a lot to answer for.

And their answer better not be ‘whoopsy!

As this article explains, the faulty analysis used in determining reserves makes erroneous assumptions which compromise the conclusion.

Those who believe a peak is imminent tend to consider only proven remaining reserves of conventional oil, which they currently estimate at about 1.2 trillion barrels. In the view of many petroleum geologists, this is a pessimistic estimate because it excludes the enormous contribution likely from probable and possible resources, those yet to be found, and plays down the importance of unconventional reserves in the Canadian oil sands, the Orinoco tar belt, oil shale and GTL projects. CERA believes the global inventory is some 4.8 trillion barrels, of which about 1.08 trillion barrels have been produced, leaving 3.72 trillion conventional and unconventional barrels, an order of magnitude that will allow productive capacity to continue to expand well into this century.

Considering that our current pump woes have more to do with tight supply and not an actual shortage of crude, then if it isn’t clear to you that you’re being legally ripped off then you are full of shit.

Sorry if the truth hurts.

When Second Bananas go bad.

More proof that there are no second acts in American Life? You be da judge.

Considering that, what’s the chance this was just a publicity stunt to try and revive his moribund career?

Nah, I’m getting too cynical.

And after you watch that, watch this:
