Occupy Congress? Who is that really keeping occupied? You.

A number of my friends want to OCCUPY CONGRESS. Jan 17 Opening Day. I suppose every day might be appropriate to read our representatives the riot act, but doesn't such an action perpetuate the delusion that our legislators ever listen? Proponents, Dems typically, argue "well, it's the only system we got." They say that about elections, about incumbents, and about Capitalism. Well, ours are the only lives we have too. Why piss them away on old assumptions, which have delivered us from absolutely nothing? A corporate-trust, inherited-wealth hierarchy is designed to outpace ordinary lifespans. Occupy Congress? Who is that really keeping occupied?

I know where Congressman Lamborn is – because no one is telling OR asking. Re: media blackout on junkets to Israel

Calls to Doug Lamborn's office inquiring as to his whereabouts produces this charade: "Um, I don't know. Let me ask. They don't know. I'm not certain who would know. Could you hold please?" And we never get an answer. That his office won't say, coupled with the media's strange incuriosity, points to a self-enforced news moratorium on where a fifth of US congress is spending the August recess: as guests of Israel and the most powerful DC lobby. It's been reported that a record 81 members are on an all-expense-paid junket to Israel, but their identities are a closely guarded secret. The US TV audience can be let to see their representatives give standing ovations to the Israeli prime minister, but visit Israel? The media blackout would have you think there's something wrong with that. 26929

Springs congressman Doug Lamborn tells citizens he answers to private propertied constituents not to public

COLORADO SPRINGS- Local citizens have had plenty to protest with Congressman Doug "Obama is a Tar-Baby" Lamborn, so now the Tea Party bigot has put up a sign, NO PROTESTING. Lamborn declined to meet with community leaders from the NAACP on Monday, or Move-On organizers on Wednesday. Are you in Colorado Congressional District Five? Well, you may neither SOLICIT a meeting with your government representative, nor LOITER hoping to wait him out. Politicians like Lamborn who want to shove undemocratic corrupt legislation down people's throats, and spout deeply offensive racist rhetoric out of sheer stupidity, have to hide where constituents can't reach them. 26325

Tea-Party Skulks decide to ramp up their terrorism…

Only, like the jackals they truly are, they did drive-by windowbreakinsgs and split before anybody could fight them. Guess it's a Republican thing, you know, institutionalized cowardice. Their Skulk "leaders" at DumFox Noose Nutwerx are "fighting a war against Liberals" the same way they "fought" in the VietNam War, which they universally supported, just, you know, not with their own personal presence. Beck and Limbaugh and Malkin and O'Reilly, Ted "I shit my pants and didn't shower for a month to play crazy in order to not go to the VietNam War I supported" Nugent, doing their Same Old Tired Ass ChickenHawk routine, urging OTHER PEOPLE to commit the crimes they're just too yellow to commit themselves. 15556

Act Blue is not going to stop Joe Wilson

Progressive websites are raising money to defeat GOP Tourette's poster child Joe Wilson in the next election. Is it going to work? No. You can't stop populist assholes like Wilson, or Vitter, or Delay, or Gingrich, or Lieberman, can you? Incumbent embarrassments have legions of loyal constituents. That's who you have to stop. If you want to stop Wilson you have to insist the South Carolina prosecutor's office isn't dropping charges of domestic violence, disorderly conduct, child truancy, poaching, littering, lying about sales use tax, and loitering at nursing homes trying to register voters. Shroud that crowd in red tape and Joe Wilson's base will head for the hills.

Obama presidential address to Congress addressed to dueling teleprompters

Have you noticed that Obama rarely looks forward when he speaks, not even by a fraction of 45 degrees? I think this censored camera shot which gives viewers President Obama’s point of view, the perspective exposes his complete reliance on the teleprompters. That’s why Obama turns his head completely from side to side, never facing forward, never appearing to address the majority of the audience who must obviously be in front of him. Anyway, it’s just an observation, but the mannerism has spoiled me for watching Obama make speeches, and I particularly question his use of the teleprompters for his press conference appearance.

Rod Blagojevich a Great American Hero

Deposed Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich earns my nomination for great American hero. What hyperbolic laurels would fit a loudmouth buffoon? Be fair. Blagojevich brought the media spotlight to an overlooked exploit of American political cronyism: a governor's solitary prerogative to appoint national legislators. Alright, Blago didn't mean to. But if the little Dutch boy had stuck his Rod Blagojevich into the dike, instead of his finger, would the little pervert be any less a hero? 6536
