You get your weather forecast at the grocery store DUH!

My Grandpa, 27 year veteran of the Army, was also a staunch Democrat mostly because of Roosevelt and his emergency actions to stop the Depression from destroying America. As bad as it was, it could have gone worse. I know a lot of our (ahem)"conservative" readers, those who drew the assignment of trolling the weblog today, are screaming at their monitors right now just from that. Now, don't y'all worry none, boys, you'll get more to holler about presently. He was in the Civilian Conservation Corps, the ones who at public expense did the necessary work to keep the Heartland from turning into a desert, and cleaned up other little "mistakes" visited on the ecosystem by Mechanized American Mercantilism. That's my nouveau mot du jour. Grandpa was assigned on a dairy farm. With a bunch of others, one of whom was from some city and had apparently never become acquainted with farm life. And who complained about caring for, cleaning and milking the cows. Since cattle lay belly down to sleep at night, often in their own feces, you can't just lead Bossy to the barn, slap a bucket under her and starting pulling teats. Hell to the No Sir. You have to

Vote for Me, or Pogo gets it between the eyes…

In another episode of the RNC deliberately throwing the 2012 elections, Bush administrations pointing fingers at each other over the Katrina non-handling. Instead of blaming everybody but themselves. Rick GoodHair told the VFW that he would send more Working Class people into harms way with pre-emptive strikes against anybody who is profiled as MAYBE becoming a terrorist threat sometime in the vague future. AND, Bachmann came out in favor of drilling for oil in the Everglades. So it's not exactly Okefenokee, the place where Pogo lived. Through the medium of a cartoon of course.

Another military victory where the Poor “socialized” their blood for Capitalism

Tripoli, the site of the FIRST U.S. Military engagement to prop up capitalism, is apparently fallen, not to economic "free" market forces, but to the Armed Forces. In a book titled "Liberty Reclaimed", often described as the libertarian bible, the statement is made and reiterated "the only substantial difference between the Soviet Union and the United States isn't one of raw political power or the freedom of the subjects but one of economic policy."   So, when the Military claimed and still claim that they were and are fighting for freedom, they're lying. Just as the Pentagon and their contractors lie about Agent Orange, which killed Miss Johnnie's husband and a countless number of others. Countless because the Pentagon, bowing to their Corporate Masters, denied for more than a decade that Agent Orange actually causes human death. They also have recently claimed in a lawsuit that locks out the people of VietNam from any lawsuits that the people of the Republic of VietNam (Saigon government) sprayed with A.O. (and lots of other Military hardware sold at massive profits by the Corporations who now claim a moral exemption to taxation) were enemy combatants thus not eligible for compensation for their kids being killed.

BP can’t find skilled workers. DUH!

As part of the international cabal sabotaging public education, workers rights, environmental and workplace safety, and making sure the Courts are fully privatized and thus Not Going To Ever Grant Equal Protection Under The Law.   Oh, that's right, we, the workers, who control less than a fifth of the wealth of the world, are allowed to buy judges too. Mighty gracious of them to "give" us such a right. The law, in its majestic equality, forbids rich and poor alike from begging, stealing bread and sleeping under bridges. 26440

Jim Bowie’s Noble Gesture of freeing his servant Sam

At the Alamo during the Texas Land Grab Disguised As A Revolution while he was waiting to be overrun and killed.   Mighty "white" of him but, hey, the manumission papers were a useless formality. One of the excuses used for stirring up the revolution was "deprivation of property rights" meaning that General Antonio Jose y Maria Lopez de Santa Ana had, through the enforcement of the Guerrero Proclamation, emancipation papers for anybody in Mexico (including, legally, San Antonio) who was held as a slave. This wasn't done as a slap in the face for the white Anglo colonists, who hadn't (yet) become quite the pestilence they would later be. 26438

Rick GoodHair, latest actor in the insane RNC puppet show

Aside from the constant pain in my destroyed feet ankle and left knee being a minute by minute reminder of the "Texas Miracle" economic program... There's the fact that the Reddest of the Red States are net debtors to the Federal Government they claim to despise. Corporate Warfare Welfare being the worst offender but also the massive amount of people who are eligible for food stamps (such as it is) AFDC and utilities assistance even though they're working two jobs at slave wages. Keep the workers broke, in debt, and if they're broken on the job, like myself, we're told that we should have squeezed insurance money and "down time" money out of the wage which isn't enough to pay our bills. 26377
