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 without becoming violently ill.
“The debt crisis has been a game changer in terms of defense spending,” said Laura Peterson, a national security analyst at Taxpayers for Common Sense, a nonpartisan budget watchdog. “It used to be that asking how much the wars cost was unpatriotic. The attitude going into the war is you spend whatever you cost. Now maybe asking is more patriotic.”
How was that funded without raising taxes? Bonds.

Bonds which pay 10% annually. Which means the interest is going to exactly match the principal this coming quarter.
So that makes the cost to the taxpayers exactly twice what it would have cost with a pay-as-you-go system. Because the Rich Bitches like CheneyBush aren’t going to let the American People get out of our obligation to line their pockets. And they’re not going to tax their Rich Bitch Buddies either, they’ve already made that point clear. Instead they’re going to blame the poorest people, those of us who control less than 1% of the total wealth, for their own little Oopsie moment, and tax us accordingly. Cut Momma’s Social Security. Slash pay and benefits so we’ll have less raw income with which to pay more money than all of us collectively won’t see in several lifetimes of Minimum Slavery.
Those of us “Lucky Duckies” who don’t make enough money to pay income tax.

It seems that every time Class Warfare rears its ugly head, the guns are pointed at the Working class and away from the Parasite Class.

It’s worth noting that within a year the first use of a machine gun (different from a Gatling gun) by the United States Army was against U.S. civilians at the Ludlow Massacre, and IWW organizer Joe Hill was blown away at Salt Lake City by a firing squad.

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.

So they’ll treat our skills as just another commodity, one which we were supposed to take money away from paying our rent, medical care and other bills to buy that commodity so we could sell THAT, too, at a price far below what it cost us to produce it.

Palin and Bachmann and the rest of the TeaPubliKlan Party chose to be somewhat higher paid slaves (whores, actually) for the Oil Lobby. And make the claim that they have the authority to sell US to their whore-masters. And our children and grandchildren. It’s not any consolation but they sold their own kids and grandkids to their corporate masters too.
Soylent Green Is PEOPLE!

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.

The net effect is we’re paying the corporations for the privilege of being their slaves.

Then the stoopit bastard said, many times, that he could and would secede from the United States. Groovy, GoodHair, tres groovie. You can catch the bus to Guatemala or some other banana republic any time you want.

One thing, the three other times Texas actually seceded, 1821 from Spain, 1836 from Mexico and 1861 from the United States the cause was an exaggerated view of Property Rights, and the constitutional prohibition against removing (amongst other things) property without due process. Only the “property” they were talking about was owning the lives and labor of human beings.

Funny thing about that clause, so Noble a Cause when the Confederacy of Dunces pulled that shit…

Now, the PEOPLE they were so worried about no longer being allowed to unlawfully remove their liberty from said PEOPLE, without any more than a pretense of Due Process, before they were born and for the duration of their lives and their childrens lives, well, they’re no longer considered property.

If Ricky the Republitard actually wanted to take Texas out of the Union, it would have to be a UNANIMOUS vote by every person in the state.

To forcibly evict any dissidents from Texas would deprive them of their freedoms and their property without due process.

Gentlemen and Ladies of Colour in Texas are now the majority, and, it’s our family history, we know how “kindly” and with what measure of respect for their rights our ancestors were treated the last three secession sessions.

Maybe his retarded ass should go door-to-door in South Oak Cliff soliciting votes for his Return To The Glory of the (slave plantation) Old South campaign.

And of course kiss some huge military installations goodbye, which was his next trick to balance the Texas Budget. Fat chance.

So now he’s hoping to follow the footsteps of his Thief Mentor GWBush, go to Washing Tundy Sea in order to pull of similar robbery of the U.S. treasury. Why settle for comparatively Petty Theft crimes when they could go straight for the jugular?

But the fact that the Moron, along with similarly morally challenged freaks who make up the “leadership” pool of the RepubliKlan and TeaPotty candidates, actually has a chance of being offered up as a serious candidate for the office of the President of The United States, leads me to conclude that they’re a sideshow distraction.

In circus parlance, “Send in the clowns” meant they had to clean up a particularly untidy mess in one part of the show, so they would darken the area around the dead trapeze artists, or lions contentedly feasting on their suddenly former trainer, bring up the spotlight on another area of the floor and “send in the clowns” to divert attention.

There’s another saying, “I wouldn’t follow him into a whorehouse if he was paying”.

Such as any of the Morally Challenged Congenital Liars the RNC is trotting out as their candidate field.

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.

The defector, Rafid Ahmed Alwan al-Janabi, said in an interview with the Guardian that he had fabricated claims of mobile biological weapons and clandestine factories made to German intelligence officials throughout 2000.

Former U.S. President George W. Bush and other high U.S. officials cited the threat posed by Iraqi biological weapons as justification for the U.S.-led invasion in 2003.

No such weapons were found and years of political and sectarian bloodshed followed In Iraq, resulting in more than 100,000 mostly civilian deaths.

“Maybe I was right, maybe I was not right,” Janabi, codenamed “Curveball” by U.S. and German intelligence officials, told the newspaper.

“I had a problem with the Saddam regime,” he said. “I wanted to get rid of him and now I had this chance.”

The information from Janabi formed the basis of a 2003 speech by former U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell before the United Nations Security Council.

The Guardian said Janabi had told a German official about mobile bioweapons trucks during 2000.

The German secret service, the BND, which had identified Janabi as a Baghdad-based chemical engineer, approached him in March of that year and again in 2002 looking for inside information about Iraq.

“They gave me this chance. I had the chance to fabricate something to topple the regime,” Janabi said.

“Believe me, there was no other way to bring about freedom to Iraq. There were no other possibilities.”

(Writing by Karolina Tagaris, editing by Chris Wilson)

So in other words, they based their claims on the word of one man who had a hateful grudge against Saddam Hussein. Now, if they’d found one of Saddam’s FRIENDS to testify against him that would have been enough evidence to launch an investigation.

The Bush/Blair doctrine was that “if there’s a 1% chance” they had a duty to launch the war, and destroy the economy of every country involved and kick the props out from under the rest of the global economy as well.

How about THIS? Since a lot of the Leaders of the “externally induced coup” claim to be fundamentalist Christians or Zionist Jews or even Muslims, (Saudis, Jordan, Mubarak-the-ex-satrap-of-Egypt, Turkey…) why not do what Jewish/Christian/Sharia law commands, and judge the accusers by the same standards they used to make their judgments?

A lot of people, even non-religious, know the saying, or at least part of it, “Judge not, lest ye also be judged…” and the rest of it “for by the same measure with which ye judge shalt thou also be judged”

How ’bout it, Bush apologists? Colorado Springs Christian Schools, you up for some good ol’ Biblical Judging? Is there a 1% chance that Bush/Blair/Cheney were deliberately lying and deliberately provoked the wars for the profits of the Oil Corporations who they represent far above the representation of the rest of the citizens of America and Britain?
C’mon, folks, They Set The Measure For The Judgment.

The Bible says that if you perjure yourself, “bear false witness against thy neighbor”, you know, one of God’s Top Ten list? then you bear the punishment that resulted by your false witness 7 times over.

Now, I’m not the killin’ sort, but remember, GW set the standard. How about find 7 Bush supporters for every 1 Iraqi killed and 2 Bush supporters for every American or Koalition of the Killing soldier killed (they count for less because so many are Bush supporters themselves) and line them all up in front of a belt fed water cooled machine gun with a deep deep trench behind them? Bush and 6 other hanged for the death of Saddam and 7 apiece for the other lynch-mob Iraqi puppet dictatorship “Justice” system victims. Sound good?

WHAT? No? but but but… y’all were so very eager to send other people over there to kill up a mess of them thar Eye-rackies based on a much harsher measure of judgment… what do you mean you don’t support the Biblical Judgment you impose on others?

Are you the ones who skip over Levitican laws about eating shrimp or blood sacrifice but not the ones about homosexuality and anything else you can twist around to make yourselves feel good about killing Other People to “fulfill the commandment”?

Shame, brethren and sistren, SHAME!

How about them AMERICAN WMDs? Even the ones alleged to be in Saddams possession were American, British, French and German made… America has more of every class of WMD than the rest of the world combined, does that mean that any nations in the world, especially since Bush/Blair launched their unjustified invasion of foreign nations, thus placing US in the same class of criminal conspiracy as alleged against Saddam Hussein and al Qa’eda, could theoretically form their own “Koalition of the Killing” and just invade us and kill up a mess of Americans?

Why not? You claim to speak for every American or even every Christian American, as though you had the authority from God to do so, Right? The essence of Dominionism.

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.

Since WHEN? Isn’t HBGary one of the firms contracted by not only the Dept of (in)Justice but also Homeland (in)Security and the Department of Remote Controlled Assassinations “Defense”?

Why do I suspect that the alleged hack attack on their website by “anonymous” is a Marinus van der Lubbe type of setup to convict without trial the persons HBGary and their whoremasters at DoJ and DoD had already targeted?

This is sick. On a day when the British are considering taking the first steps toward an Extraordinary Rendition to Guantanamo Torture Center of Wikileaks founder Assange, and BBC is reporting the “hack” against HBGary as though it’s an established fact, Beating the ol’ War Drum against Freedom, once more…

The Empire is going DOWN in Egypt, in Yemen, in Tunisia, in Jordan, it’s spilling over into Iraq where the BushCheneyObama appointed President for Life of Iraq, Nouri al Maliki, has been frightened into stating he’ll give up his Imperial Backed Satrap-in-Perpetuity role in three years. (gives him and the Empire time to change their tune if things turn around for them, perhaps?)

NONE of these made the top twenty. Instead people are fixing their gaze on the Bread and Circuses Imperial Games.

The closest thing to any interest in what the Evil Empire is doing is some commercial involving Darth Vader. And Ms Aguilera not singing the National Anthem right. Of course the Racist Pricks who make up the American Right Wing will blame that on her Spanish surname and I’ll bet that none of them can actually sing the entire song.

That’s THEIR level of so-called “patriotism”. Drown out the FACT that their murder spree at home and abroad, like the Baby-killing Drone Strikes which, according to the USAF only kill “Militants” are actually killing more civilians and especially Children than they are “militants”.

Drown it out with racist inspired chants of “she can’t sing the National Anthem!” Ahem.

/rant

anyway… back to REAL NEWS, m’kay? Wikileaks is under real attack for publishing data such as the USAF admitting in what they THOUGHT were “internal” communications that they don’t know Who the Fuck They’re Killing in more than half of their Literally God-damned air strikes. But they claim to know that the only people they’ve killed were Militants.

Wikileaks founder Assange is being held on drummed up charges in anticipation of the WarPigs being able to kill him.

The WarPigs are actively seeking people who don’t bow down, lick their boots and refrain from mentioning the Truth that counters their LIES. A REAL Criminal is coming to Colorado Springs to receive a Hero’s Medal for his acts of treachery, lies, murder, theft, conquest… all in the name of God. The Imperial Vassal States are in open rebellion against the Empire, the Empire has bugger all they can actually do about it, and people worry about a football game instead.

The “barbarians” aren’t at the gates, they’re firmly ensconced in the seat of Imperial Power. And they obviously fully intend to destroy everything they possibly can on their way down to Hell. And they’ll do it in the name of God and of Freedom.

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”

So the Baroness is pissed. GOOD.

The Royals got snubbed by Peasants.

GOOD.

Apparently, unilateral demands should only come from the Empire.

Only, since World War One they’ve shied away from being called that.

One of the reasons for the British Crown starting the war was the same with King George V as it was with Elizabeth II, Iranian oil for the Empire. And Iraqi.

Only it was under Turkish control at the time, and had to be taken away from Turkish control by force of arms. Arms carried in the arms of Peasants who had to be conscripted or cajoled into doing Their Masters’ bidding.

So they invented a lie, of course. Happens all the time in Diplomatic Circles, as Wikileaks has recently revealed. Just like Gueen Bess 2 cheerily signing on to the BushBlairCheneyCo. lies about WMDs both in Iraq and Iran, King George V jumped at a chance to pit “his” Imperial Army against those of his cousins in a gigantic game of Risk where the pawns actually scream, bleed and die when gassed, shot or bombed.

By telling the Suckers errr “Loyal Subjects Patriots that they, as subjects and property of an Emperor, were to fight Imperialism.

“That small nations would have the same rights as the the Great Powers.” What a crock of Lying Pig Shit.

The Emperors made out like the murdering bandits they were then and still are today.

The peasants filled millions of graves. Same as always.

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.

Then there are people who have only one purpose, one drive to continue life… Hatred. People like Pamela Geller. There’s some crossover with the War Contractors and Political Hacks on that score as well, Michelle Malkin leaps to mind.

The biggest thing about any and all of these people who either demand that we not question Their Sacred 9/11 Gospel of Hate, lest they brand us as Non-Americans. Which, you know, when enough of the Anti-American Terrorists like the re-branded Ku Klux Klowns of the Tea Party catch somebody whom they’ve declared to be “Not a REAL American” out alone and helpless, extra heavy on the helpless, they can get really vicious. Killing Vicious.

Alternated with mocking anybody who questions them or points out their dangerous behavior problems, like Murder, Arson, Aggravated Assault… those type of things, must be “stupid” or “Crazy” or some other version of “not able to think rationally nor intelligently”.

And all this from people who either consistently Lie about just anything they open their cake-holes to spew, deliberately and with full knowledge that they’re lying, or the Disciples of their 9/11 Official Story Cult, apparently some of them unable to tell that the most blatant lies are in fact lies,… but most of them too Morally Chickenshit, lacking the courage to face those Lies and call them Lies.

The proponents of the 9/11 Official Gospel also told us that there were Training Camps in Afghanistan, camps which, after almost 9 years of continuous occupation by United States and allied armies, have never actually been found.

The million pounds of Nerve Gas supposedly in Iraq.
Supposedly moved around an urban population center, Baghdad, by underpaid, underfed, undereducated, undertrained and badly demoralized Teenage Conscripts who had no training in handling Nerve gas, often only a half-hour ahead of U.N. Weapons Inspectors… without one single accident.
The United States, which has more stockpiled Nuclear, Biological and Chemical weapons than the rest of the world combined, stores “our” Nerve Gas in climate controlled, heavily guarded, monitored, stationary locations. They don’t move the shit around, ever. And there are still leaks, accidents, sometimes fatal.

I’ll have to remind the deliberately Slow types that these wonderful Disinformation Packages were provided by the same Lying Sources who back up the Official Myth about 9/11.

These same sources tell us, constantly, that Osama bin Laden, hiding in a cave somewhere, is directing world-wide terror plots. They offer us recordings of what’s reported to be his voice. Which were questioned by other people with considerable expertise in voice analysis. They’re just not the Officially Approved experts.

That stamp of Not Officially Approved means, to the simplest and most churlish of the Cult of the 9/11 Official Gospel, that they must be either Stupid or Crazy.
Again, sources, sources, sources.

The Officially Approved Experts, while acknowledging that Osama bin Laden hasn’t actually been seen for 8 and a half years, therefore they have no actual pictures of him freshly taken, created with what they SAID was sophisticated FBI Approved Expert Age Progression Analysis. Aided by computer software, a Picture of somebody they claimed was Osama. But instead was a photoshopped picture of a Spanish Politician. One who, just by mere coincidence, mind you Opposed the wars.
Which throws into question every case the FBI has “solved” using this non-existent Age Progression Technology.

There have been, from the same sources from which springs the Official 9/11 Gospel, prosecutions of people who could not possibly be guilty, including a group of street people in Miami who, though penniless, offered to blow up the Sears Tower, blow up “the dam at Lake Toronto” wherever the Hell that is and thus flood downtown Chicago. And to travel the country putting poison in Salt Shakers at diners. That prosecution was “successful”.

And the same liars who told us that, told us the Official Gospel of 9/11. The faked bomb plots, resolved in the nick of time by the brave, dedicated and above all Not Professional Liars in the Police State Appparati whose jobs would be in jeopardy if Americans don’t believe their story line.

Lie after Constant Lie, and we’re supposed to believe their version of events or be judged as Stupid and Crazy.

The Korporate Backers of the TeaParty/Ku Klux Klown Hate Group have made money exploiting the hatred generated by the constant Muslim Bashing to slow implementation of what eventually has to be done, Public Option Medicare for Everybody.

In doing so, they’ve killed 120 Americans a day, more every month than were killed at 911. And that being only those Americans who could afford Private Health Insurance, and were denied Health Care anyway. Many more die uncounted because we don’t get to even see the Primary Care. Not diagnosed BEFORE death and certainly not diagnosed AFTER. Scrape the body off the sidewalk and a Police PIG “doctor” Coroner signs the paper end of story period.

That makes them Murders many times over and above the numbers of Americans killed on 9/11.

They, too, insist on the Official Gospel of 9/11 being believed, along with all the Corollary Lying about WMDs, Osama bin Laden, whatever Lies it takes to keep their wars going and sucking America dry.

Including the paid professional Liars at Fox networks. Two of whom I know have been paid more than a billion dollars apiece to turn chickenshit into chicken soup on FOX, over the years.

But we’re “crazy” for pointing that up as well.

Where the Sheep-like Idiots who believe every word spewed out of their lying mouths, regardless of how false, hey, they’re Smart and have good common sense. Four legs good, two legs Baaaaaaaadddddd!

And the notion that they obviously enjoy the violence committed against their Fellow Americans is “crazy” too.

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.

What did you think, that the Corporate Press would cut the throats of their Pigs who lay the Golden Turds? Of course they won’t. People who were recently in the Military Establishment have a little bit of an excuse. Not much but some. It’s called Stockholm Syndrome. “Jonah, from whose rectal orifice did you pull that one?” but, straight from the Horses’ Mouths is more like it. Stockholms is well documented because the United States Military uses it to defend against confessions made by U.S. POWs. In every non-declared war in my lifetime, the only POWs treated as such by the U.S. military were those held prisoner by the people the U.S. soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines attacked, in their own countries, without a declaration of war.
Like McCain. VietMinh “cong” soldiers were handed over to the Saigon Govt troops for torture and execution, not as POWs, but as criminals.
Fairly typical, Bush demanded that any American soldiers taken prisoner by the resistance groups in the nations of Iraq and Afghanistan be “treated humanely under the terms of the Geneva and Hague Conventions” while denying any such treatment to the prisoners captured and tortured and killed by OUR soldiers.

So here’s how Stockholm’s works. It’s a principle of Pavlovian Conditioning. Like when Dr Pavlov trained his dogs to slobber every time he rang a bell.
In the Chinese prison camps during the Korean War, the SAME techniques used to train those dogs, and to train the U.S. soldiers and really those of every established military in the world, were called “brainwashing”.
Who says so? The U.S. Army

When we write of War Crimes committed by the U.S. Army, our sources certainly aren’t the Tame Media. They’re the often conflicting reports issued by the Army and… from the soldiers themselves.

The recently discharged soldiers, well, they’re still hopped up on the Industrial Strength Koolaid administered by the Army. In-their-face confrontations against the lies they were told so often is a good therapy for that.

It also helps that the Army pushes so hard to wash the brains that many of the soldiers reach a threshold where they’ll not go further. It’s worse in this war than any other we’ve had, because now the Army has psychiatry and drugs to help them keep pushing the soldiers past the limit.

You can tell the recently discharged soldiers because they’ll be all foaming at the mouth denouncing their comrades, their fellow soldiers, who have passed the critical milestones on the road back to reality. Their treatments of two, Max Cleland who lost three limbs and almost half his body weight as a result of a mortar shell. And Ron Kovic, born on the Fourth of July.

Celebrated as Heroes as long as they were willing to play the role of Token Cripple for the military “I’m proud to have lost limb and function in VietNam fightin’ for Freedom (freedom to comply, conform and obey) and the Murkin Way!”
Like Sgt Popavitch and his eye.

Some people manage, through a lifetime of drug abuse, like alcoholism, and pure hatred, to keep that spirit until they die. Others go crazy. Get physical problems from trying to internalize the PTSD that kill them. A heart attack at 40, systemic failure that’s more normal in a 70 year old happening in their mid-30s.

The solution offered by the military and their “toughie” supporters? Ridicule their comrades who were wounded every bit as bad as Cleland and Kovic and Popavitch as “weaklings”, and usually the ones who come to this website screaming and bitching about how badly WE are disrespecting wounded people.

Straight from the mouths of horses.

When confronted by logic, as in, where is their Defense of Freedom when it comes to Americans who disagree with them, they start chanting slogans.

Typical of brainwashing victims. When they’re confronted with the Ultimate, where were their protests when Kovic and Cleland were crucified in the Right Wing “liberal” MSM, when Kovic was dragged from his wheelchair by pro-war PIGS for daring to protest, where was their outrage against THAT treatment of wounded warriors?

When they start chanting that only those who went to war are qualified to speak on the subject, unless the ones who speak against their former masters contradict what the Former Masters have to say… in which case being dragged from a wheelchair is considered “justice”.

Sometimes the therapy works and the Pavlov Dogs of War are freed from their internalized psychological chains.

Sometimes, like with War Profiteers Ollie North and “Gunny” Bob Newman, it never worked.

It’s always worth the gamble, though.

Silly Palin praises fallen Medal of Honor marine, but fails to note a couple things

One is that the actions he was taking, along with his comrades, when he won the medal, were War Crimes. The use of Military Force to compel people to obey his Terrorist Government. Civilian People. Making War against CIVILIANS.

The other thing Mrs Palin neglected to mention is that neither she nor her Accomplices in the Bush and now Obama administration, and their Oil Company puppetmasters, gave two shits more about the life of the Marine or any of his 6000+ fellow soldiers who were slaughtered in the act of their commissions of War Crimes, than she or her Accomplices care about the Civilians who were either enslaved or Murdered at their command. She makes money from every soldier who dies, and every one of their victims who dies or is imprisoned as well.
If her OWN son gets his stupid head blown off, she’ll make money from that as well, AND use his death to make herself “look good”. Typical Warmongering Money-worshipper.

The Dollar Bill is their god. They even call it “The Almighty”. It only makes it that much more blasphemous when they go to church and pretend that the atrocities they commit are done for Jesus or any other name of Jehovah.

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.

And, yes, it DOES look like four curled knuckles with an outstretched middle finger.

OOOOOOOO…. I bet that makes bin Laden shake in his sandals!

But my thought was, since the place is literally a grave to begin with, why not just pour a concrete slab 4 stories high and have the names of the Known Dead written on it as a tombstone? Maybe write the names of the thousands of Americans and Hundreds of Thousands of Afghans and Iraqis and Pakistanis etc etc etc that were slaughtered in an orgy of Hate, which funneled the treasury of the United States into the pockets of Bush and Cheney, who were extremely likely suspects in the destruction of the Towers in the first place. They made out like, well, the despicable Sneak Thief Cowards that they truly are.

Does anybody else find it intriguing that there were no high-level Finance or Trade ministers actually in the buildings at the time, on a Tuesday morning in the late summer? Or how about the Pentagon, top heavy with Colonels and Generals, (naval Captains and Admirals…) but not a single general dies in the attack? Or the fourth plane, supposedly going after the White House, when George coWard Bush had let it be known a couple of weeks in advance that he wasn’t going to be there?

By the way, if they’re looking to insult folks from the Arabian peninsula, the “sign of the fig” would be more appropriate.

But the ones who want to “wave the bloody shirt” to keep the BushWarz going (and putting more money into the pockets of the Corporate Elite) wouldn’t recognize that anyway.

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)

You see, the Daddy WarBucks DeathMongers and their partners in the Oil Industry, they’re entitled to take any oil resources in any country they want, tax free (on their part) and the American People are obligated not only to do their fighting for them, we have to pay for their Wars of Conquest as well.

As for their so-called concern for “Seniors” their party has sucked Medicare and Social Security funds dry to fund THEIR War. They’ve repeatedly robbed Social Security trust funds for the past three decades and campaigned not only against any increases in health care to the older Americans who rely on it, but against the very institution of Medicare in the first place. Rush Limbaugh vowed two weeks ago that he would leave the country if it passed… Wow, you think for once he’ll keep his word? Bye, Rush, nice seeing you(r back as you’re leaving) and don’t you worry none, if them thare Costa Rican Peasants ever rebel against you and your equally Fat Retarded Friends, you know you can always count on your Dittoheads to come and fight for you, just like you and your Fat-ass retarded brother did in Vietna… ooops… Never Mind. When left for the ChickenHawks to do anything like that, you’re screwed.

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.

While you’re out there with your signs tonight, in Colorado, in Washington, screaming about how those of us who aren’t Rich simply DESERVE to die, the Rich Bitch Corporations who are funding and organizing your “grass roots” movement are raping America one public trust at a time.

Congratulations, your Corporate Masters have bought you. And by extension hope to buy the rest of us as well, for the small price of Everything We and You actually had. That’s right, Stupid Tea Party, you’re selling yourself for worse than nothing, you’re actually PAYING for your chains of Slavery.

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.

All these “liberals” who have their GPS units in their cars reprogrammed so that they can get anywhere making only Right Turns, (so it seems) and the (death death KILL Them ALL! bwaahaaahaa) prosecutor and primary supplier for the California Death House, Vincent Bugliosi, who is about ten degrees to the right of Vlad the Impaler.

These are NOT peaceniks by anybody’s standards. And, none of them, not a single one, in any way a supporter of or fan of Saddam Hussein.

The sad part of it, Rove’s Book is going to be served to the Right Wing Morons who make up the rank and file of the Republican Party, and they’ll eat it up and ask for seconds.
The dipshits who believe that really, any day now, you’ll see, the million pounds of nerve gas is going to be found in a super secret underground laboratory in a hollowed out volcano under the Tigris river…
And that Osama bin Laden is going to be there too.

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.

Between his uncanny Zombie-like appearance and his penchant for dishonesty, people would simply disbelieve him each time he said he wasn’t dead.

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

cheneyThe 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?

You cannot build a great country always rallying around liars like this. I am not about to single out the military by pointing out that they are liars. They certainly aren’t the only liars around in our country at all. But what are we to make of how they lied about the people they threw into Guantanamo to torture without end? Judge orders release of 5 terror suspects at Gitmo These people didn’t do anything, and the military didn’t give a damn, they just wanted some POWs to torture! Never mind that many if not most of them were in fact civilians. The Pentagon Liars didn’t care!

Of course, the military tends to lie to a lot of people a lot of the time. They like to lie to high school seniors, they like to lie to those they plan to make grunts for the meat grinder. They lie about exposure to toxic elements, they lie about the dangers of forced vaccinations, they lie about radioactive exposure to the lower ranking pawns, they lie about their military bases being GREEN. The Pentagon Liars lie just about everything. They lied about Gulf War Syndrome’ all to keep from accepting blame for the harm the military does.

The military doesn’t build character, it destroys it. It makes of us all a giant nation of liars. Our entire sense of national worth has been transformed by these Pentagon Liars into one based on fire power and the lies that are always made to use it on others. We have had the US turned into a giant lie, all by the Pentagon Liars and the government liars that are their supreme commanders. We no longer run the government, the government runs us, and the supreme lie of them all is that we are some how a functioning democracy. This is what Pentagon Liars are all about… their LIES to keep others marching to keep others in place.

One of the most pathetic lies by men permeated, inbedded by their support for the Pentagon Liars is the one that has most of them always blaming all that is bad on something they call BIG GOVERMENT. How ironic that these BIG GOVERNMENT pawns are the ones that seem to often line up most to complain about the dangers of BIG GOVERNMENT??? Like Duh??? You’re part of it, Military People! Support Our Troops bullshit! You’re talking supporting BIG GOVERNMENT and the Pentagon Liars. You’re supporting maintiaining your own sense of special entitlement.

Yes, let those men go. There is no reason to support these Pentagon Liars in their holding men outside of all law and against it, and then destroying them. Shame on you, Pentagon Liars! You’re holding the innocents hostage. Shame on you! You take orders without questioning them and then want to be worshiped as some sort of big heroes for doing such. You want us to lie for you, too!

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.

But now that they have winked and us and admitted what liars they are, the Bush Administration has set us up a fall guy by the name of John Yoo to take the heat over torture. What a crock of shit! We know that all of you in the Bush Administration, plus hundreds upon hundreds of top Democrats,too, were all involved in approving torture use on the prisoners held by US military forces. Who is this Yoo you want us to go after? He is a nobody. Here is what the LA Times has to say about the issue- Which came first: memos or torture?

Why should John Yoo be taking the blame for people like Dick Cheney and Dubya? He is not even a Donald Rumsfield, or Condy Rice, not to mention all the generals who are in charge of the actual ongoing abuse of these many times innocent men and even children. Yoo, in short, is a yodel.

But behind all this game playing are the Democrats. Yoo is a play target for these DP politicians so complicit with carrying out the policies and activities of the Republican Party. Shame on you Democrats, for letting the Republicans get away with using torture on people, as you idly sat by and pretended to be mildly opposed to what they were doing. You are liars, too, and on a scale equal to the Republicans. Until we get rid of both you squads of creeps, this country is going nowhere good but fast.

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.
