Poster boy for sleeping America

June 18, 2010

While you were asleep- or working hard trying to get ahead- this fucktard’s been living the life of Riley. Ten years on full disability, and he’s only 42.

Yet he runs marathons.

No joke. I wish it was. [ New Jersey Watchdog ]

But maybe I’m just secretly jealous.


Black Oily Swan

May 29, 2010

A man-made disaster of epic proportions, I think we better start getting used to the idea that the leak currently hemorrhaging oil deep in the Gulf of Mexico may never be plugged.

I know it's a pelican

I expect that soon BP will throw up their hands and simply walk away. Taking a page from the Wit and Wisdom of Lloyd Blankfein, BP will announce “We did our best, this tragedy is now in the hands of God.” And of course the Gov will “take charge” of the disaster, and the money of course will come out of your pocket.

There will be no recourse for We the People. Just like Wall Street,  the Oilcos have engineered the law so that they will be untouchable.

Up to this point, BP has presented what in this age of centrally controlled media looks like a good faith effort. In fact it appears to cynics like me that every move they make is only to cover their ass. Corporate controlled media will make the case for their cronies offering the valuable assistance of helping form public opinion. Expect the slant from Faux Nooze(tm) et al along the lines of “If this is the Good Lord”s will, what you going to do?”

Obama will continue as an ineffectual figurehead who will make the right noises to keep the tongue clicking to a minimum. Meanwhile he will continue to reward Corporate America with the riches they so deserve. He might even get re-elected.


Meanwhile, Louisiana continues to get treated like a prison bitch.


Campaign to cut Soc Sec and Medicare Benefits Part Two

May 12, 2010

They’re gonna pull out all the stops and steam roll right over each and everyone of you.

Just thought you would like to know.


No soup for you

May 10, 2010

The MSM has successfully done .gov’s dirty work for lo these many years. Their valuable assistance? Framing the debate (aka “true lies”). Through their controlled channels, anything the kleptocrats don’t want to get through, doesn’t. Alternative voices with better solutions that would benefit taxpayers never even have a chance to get on camera.

Obamacare was framed for the benefit the insurance companies and big pharma. Invasion of Iraq and Afghanistan were framed to benefit military contractors and oilcos. TARP was to save capitalism (heh, well your 401k, but actually banker bonuses).

This past weekend’s ECB bailout (I dub it TARP Deux: We have a Bazooka II) is a reaction to keeping the entire worldwide economy from going tilt. Not exactly a positive purpose- borrowing money to pay off bad debts just can’t be good for anyone, ultimately. But the market doesn’t seem think so, for now.

Next up: entitlement programs.

The entitlement program debate is- haven’t you heard?– that Soc Sec and Medicare are going broke. Soon. So, good people of these United States, you’re going to have to cut back your expectations because obviously the ONLY solution is to cut these programs back. Or maybe eliminate them entirely.

Oh and by the way, .gov fully intends to confiscate your 401k and IRA too, in order to pay out what they can. It’s okay if you have to eat dog food (hey, aren’t you a patriot?), but why should retired .gov employees have to suffer like you, after having sacrificed a chance to make it rich in the private sector in order to toil in the public sector.

This video does a nice job of revealing how they operate, it is kind of an inside look at how kleptocrats and their cronies work in tandem to rob you.


Now that’s what you call Quality Leadership(tm)

April 27, 2010

This is the sort of arrogance evidenced when  military leadership can hold the audience hostage (I use audience instead of reporters as these indoctrinated hacks long ago gave up their objectivity and integrity in order to rub their dicks and clits against their fave political hack’s slacks) to tell really stupid and intelligence-insulting jokes.

What I call:  hubris. Much in evidence. If I were more adept at video editing, I could do a reel.


“When a nation practices evil, there is no way that it is going to be blessed in the long run. The truth is that we have become a nation that is dripping with corruption and wickedness from the top to the bottom. Unless this fundamentally changes, not even the most perfect political policies in the world are going to do us any good. In the end, you always reap what you sow. The day of reckoning for the U.S. is nigh.” -Anonymous

“What I say is that I never had a real job,” Turbo Timmeh joked.

“TurboTax” Timmy [ Shitener ] Geithner has worked in government his whole life. Before becoming Treasury secretary, he was president of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, which is a government job but is closely associated with Wall Street. The New York Fed president is selected by a board of private sector bankers and other private sector officials but has to be approved by the Federal Reserve Board in Washington. Almost all of the New York Fed’s profits get turned over to the U.S. government.

Untouchable in America means something else

February 27, 2010

Yes, as the Washington Post reports, the United States government announced today that there will be no penalties whatsoever for the lawyers who were ordered by their superiors, George Bush and Dick Cheney, to write memos “justifying” the tortures that Bush and Cheney wanted to unleash upon captives held indefinitely without charges, without evidence, without trial, without rights.

Dick Cheney has openly confessed to instructing his pathetic little minions, his nasty little modern-day Vyshinksys, John Yoo and Jay Bybee, to write the scraps of paper of twisted legalese meant to pre-emptively exonerate the top officials of the United States government for the unambiguously criminal actions they were to inflict upon their uncharged, untried prisoners — some of whom had actually been purchased, like slaves, from traffickers in human bodies — around the world. Cheney boasts openly of supporting and facilitating torture techniques — such as waterboarding — which have historically been prosecuted as high crimes by American authorities, and are, in fact, capital crimes under the laws of the United States today.

But on Friday, February 19, 2010, the administration of President Barack Obama declared that not only will it not prosecute the avowed and boastful perpetrators and accomplices of the capital crime of torture, it will not impose even the mildest of administrative or professional reprimands upon them. For the foulest of tortures, reaching even to murder, the government of the United States will do nothing: no investigation, no prosecution, no penalty.

I have run out of words to describe how vile this is. The mind recoils against fully comprehending the moral depravity of our leaders — and the reeking stench of their pious hypocrisy.
