War costs many times what Pentagon reported, Surprise.

We've been told, you know, that the total spending on the Wars Of Conquest in the Bananastans was "only" a Trillion dollars. For those who don't visualize numbers very well, that's a million times a million. Using the largest standard bill in U.S. Currency, the $100, it would take a suitcase to hold a million dollars, and it would weigh just over 22 pounds, ten kilograms. (Each bill weighs a gram, 10,000 bills... hey, people in the drug trade know that, it's easier to weigh a million dollars than count it. That shit from Scarface where they had a counting machine, pure fiction. Dope dealers use their scales for more than just weighing out the product.) Other estimates are 3.7 trillion. That's substantially more. Then there's more realistic estimates that range from 5 Trillion up to 8 Tera-bux. That would be from estimating the costs + "over-runs" like syphoning off a few million suitcases full of Benjamins, of construction projects given with no-bid contracts to companies like Halliburton, which has a lot of connections to the Bush Family and the former President of Vice, Richard "dickless" Cheney. But they wouldn't rip us off, no, not possible. I could barely type that snark-asm

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

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

Bush/Blair have a fall guy!

Iraqi Defector gave defective evidence deliberately, US/UK Defective Detectives failed to notice. See? The Bush, Blair and other governments who launched the blatantly profit-driven war weren't actually Lying to us in any way, oh, no... They were Misled by a bad ol' Iraqi. That makes all better, they weren't dishonest, just stupid. Dig that thar hole a little deeper boys... you'll dig your way out eventually... lying cowardly profit-hungry chickenshit pukes... LONDON (Reuters) An Iraqi defector made up claims that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction to help topple his government, Britain's Guardian newspaper reported on Wednesday. 22981

If “Security Firm” HBGary knows “high command” of Anonymous…

Why then weren't they contracted by the U.S. Dept of (in)Justice to find the sender of the email on the White House LAN, who gave Pooter Libby the information to help the BushTards punish Valerie Plame Wilson for not backing up their LIES about WMDs? Wouldn't the Capital Murders of 7000+ U.S. soldiers committed by the CheneyBush Kartel stir patriotic interest on the part of ANY of them? One of the Bush Lies was that they HAD initiated a thorough investigation into the Plame leak, but couldn't find anything. Yet Disney and other entertainment outlets can find not only the ORIGIN of a file transfer, but also the computer receiving the data, or so they claim on all of the billions of IP addresses on the Internet, but they can't find one person sending an email from a specific computer, at a specific time, from the White House which has a camera trained on every door, especially in a time of "heightened security"? On an extremely limited Local Area Network. 22725

Iran had ‘preconditions’ for nuclear talks, Great Powers miffed..

Actually Baroness Ashton and other "diplomats" said they were "disappointed". Baroness Ashton led a delegation from France, Germany, Russia, the UK, US and China, at the two-day talks. The international team had proposed a new version of a plan to keep Iranian enrichment within civilian-grade levels by having it send uranium abroad to be processed. But Western diplomatic sources have spoken of anger and frustration over Iran's behavior at the talks. But of course... Arrogantly demanding that one's own nation be accorded the same Sovereign Rights as any other is a privilege accorded to the Great Powers. "Simply EVERYBODY knows THAT, Dah-link" 22399

9/11 of course. What did you expect?

Thanks to Friend Tony for pointing out that people who don't believe the Official Story of 9/11 is actually valid, are so stupid that we don't merit being read, listened to or answered. This makes somewhere around a hundred times he's made this comment, after listening to or reading them. I guess it should be pointed out AGAIN some of the many reasons why the Official Story needs some serious questioning. One is the cult like nature of the Resistance Movement Against Questioning The Official High Priests Of 9/11. Such as the Congressionally appointed commission which was stacked top to bottom with people who reaped enormous profit from touting the official story. War Contractors top the list. Political Hacks whose only chance to survive is by groveling to the War Contractors and taking the bribes offered by said Daddy Warbucks types. Hacks like Bush, and Palin, and Daddy Warbucks types who are ALSO Political Hacks. Cheney, North, Rupert Murdoch and his cast and crew of Paid Professional Liars, which now includes Sarah Palin. 19752

News sources, MSM and the mouths of horses…

See, we constantly get told, on this site and any other site that opposes the wars and the occupations and such, that we're listening to the "Liberal Mainstream Media". Huh? The most frequently criticized "Liberal" media are as rabid a War-mongering Mob as Fox, they're just more polite about it. Sometimes more polite about it. The bullshit with the "Ground Zero Mosque" is being whipped up by the MSM CORPORATE whores just as much as the FOX corporate whores. With an insidious difference, they'll use weasel words rather than coming right out and saying "Hate Muslims! Hate Islam! The REAL 'Obsession' is our Hatred for all things Middle East!" like FOX does. Same with the Wounded Warrior bullshit the Pentagon tries to fill a swimming pool with, and then dump us in. The fault of causing all those wounds and deaths isn't in the Anti-War movement, it's in those who twist their own words to make it appear just, and righteous, to CONTINUE the wars and start others. Why would they do that? Money. 19488

Rebuilding the Temple of The Almighty Dollar… the WTC… capital as “god”

So they chose one that "gives the bird" to Heaven.   Nice Choice! If you believe that Money is the god of America, and that the Twin Towers were its Most Holy Temple. I heard a preacher once describe the 9/11 as being an attack against the basic tenets of Christianity ...except, Jesus spoke against capitalism. And the first church at Jerusalem was a commune. 15580

America Wins! Tea Party LOSES!

One of their congressional whiners, from Michigan: "The American people know you can't reduce health care costs by spending $1 trillion or raising taxes by more than one-half trillion dollars. The American people know that you cannot cut Medicare by over one-half trillion dollars without hurting seniors," said Rep. Dave Camp, R-Mich. (as though the lying hypocrite ever gave two shits about seniors or the deficit) "And, the American people know that you can't create an entirely new government entitlement program without exploding spending and the deficit." (unlike the current over ten trillion deficit with more to come from an "entitlement program" for the Oil and Coal corporations and the War Industry billioniares) 15541

You know how the Tea-baggers claim to give 3/4 of a Deceased Rat’s Rectum about Seniors?

Turns out one of their controllers, the Bush Administration pricks who are angling to get back into full power, meaning, first place at the trough, have been issuing bonds against Social Security surplus funds to finance Bush's (Cheney and Rove actually) Global War On The American Bank Account, without a squeak of pretended outrage from the Tea-Baggers. More proof that their agenda has more to do on the "Astroturf Roots" level with outrage that a Black man is President than anything substantial. Tea Party "patriots", are you listening? You're being played like a finely tuned harmonica on so many levels by the Rich Bitches who will discard your stupid collective arse as quickly as they discarded the disabled and other poor and now, the Older PEOPLE you stupid bastards claim to care so much about. 15520

Rove’s Book: “I regret that I didn’t LIE ENOUGH for Bush”

Actually his "regret" was that he didn't defend the indefensible strongly enough. Not that he went along with the LIES about WMDs even after they were demonstrated to be false, and continued to press the notion that "all (responsible) Intelligence agencies agreed" Except for Wilson and his wife Valerie Plame, who were outed by Rove and Bush because they couldn't actually refute the evidence the Wilsons presented, or for that matter such "liberals" as Colonel (USMC) Scott Ritter, who unlike Rove or Bush had actually BEEN to Iraq, actually investigated the WMDs claim, with other actual Experts, (unlike anybody within the Bush Administration, REAL experts) and the private for-hire and VERY right wing intelligence agency Strategic Forecasting. 15262

Richard Cheneys Pacemaker, in a bid to save all mankind…

Attempted to quit today. He's in the hospital. I know, I know, morgue would be better, but that'll happen eventually. According to a legend which I just made up on the spot, he actually had been taken to the morgue quite a few times over his Misspent Voyage in this Vale of Tears. He couldn't talk his way out of it, people wouldn't believe him when he said he was still alive. So he hired a doctor and attorney to accompany him everywhere, bars, whorehouses, opium dens, Baby-eating parties... and convince people that he was still alive. 14925

More Torture victims in progress

"Saving his life" Yeah Right. They're taking him to to a Torture Center, keep him alive long enough to waterboard him and send the videos to Torture Freak Propagandists, like our Local "Gunny" Bob Newman and Michelle Malkin so they can use them as Pig Porn. How 'bout it, "Gunny"? Like seeing a REAL man in pain? Semper Fi, punk. And it makes the Murderers look like Compassionate Heroes instead of the Violent Perverts they really are.

Pentagon Liars

The American people want to rally around a gang of liars. We have liars in the Bush Administration, liars talking CHANGE, liars in the top levels of almost our entire business sector, and liars above all else in the Pentagon. What is with the American people? 5577

Yoo who?

The Bush Administration, after years of lying, has finally admitted that it is using torture on POWs. This it is doing after all those years of MIA/ POW campaigning against Vietnam, who were supposedly holding in secret some of our noble US soldiers in hidden camps, way years after the war. That campaign by the Right Wing- Love our Troops crowd- was ludicrous, of course, since there never were any missing GIs left behind. 3163

Dick Cheney accidentally shoots Peru with shotgun

Innocent gaffe, or an insanely ignorant Vice President of the United States? You be the judge here? The people of Peru deserve better says Dick Cheney in a recent speech in Dallas about Hugo Chavez. Luckily he didn't have his shotgun with him at the time. The people of Peru wouldn't have been able to duck in time.
