While the president-elect is making cabinet appointments, careful to pick the best fox for every hen house, hopefully he won’t miss the obvious best choices. British Petrolium CEO to insure water quality at the EPA.
Remember when Sarah Palin gave her infamous 2008 Katie Couric interview? Palin’s disordered responses were so Miss Teen Carolina that Saturday Night Live writers didn’t have to wring out a parody. Instead Tina Fey brought down the house by repeating Palin’s folksy schtick verbatim. Essentially SNL added a laugh track. Every week the entire country tuned in to SNL in anticipation of Fey’s mimicry act. Eight years later Palin has come out of the wood paneling to endorse fellow freak Donald Trump. Immediately everyone is salivating for the SNL instant replay. Hmm.
He did it! Mitt Romney picked someone more low brow than Sarah Palin, and not just figuratively. Kleptocrat Representative Paul Ryan personifies the very definition of the idiom, Low Brow, coincidentally a eugenic measure of a diminutive frontal lobe, not unrelated to pea-brained under-evolvedness. Such a Frankenstinian VP pick for the GOP ticket, means our election stage managers are pulling out all stops to scare Democrats into the voting booths. That they keep having to make the Republican bogeyman ever bogeyer, could mean they anticipate enthusiasm for President Obama to reach new lows. What unspeakably unpopular move is coming from Goldman Sachs’ man in DC, dare we ask, that we’ll need Paul Ryan playing Goober Pyle Lugosi to frighten Americans back into Obama’s arms?
There is a widespread belief in liberal circles that John McCain aberrantly reduced American politics single handedly to a cartoon level of discourse through his selection of Sarah Palin as his running mate in 2008. However, this 2012 campaign shows that liberals give John McCain way more personal credit for destroying all rational bits of interchange in American politics than he actually deserves. The 2012 campaign shows that the idiocy of Sarah Palin was to be no actual aberration at all, but rather merely the announcement of the new American norm of the ‘political’ future FOR THE MASSES…. an Alice in Wonderland landscape that we will ALL be doomed to live constantly within the dark, deep, and dank hole of American culture itself.
Why would one person need three computers at the same College Library in D.C. to publish his pseudo-conservative bullshit? What, are the Right Wing that piss-poor they can’t afford separate IP addresses?
Of course, WhiteWaitSuperIorSure, if I wrote as consistently badly as you do I’d take measures to hide my Identity too.
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 wash those teats first, especially in a setup with a milking machine.
Ol’ boy was understandably not very happy with that. Wished the cows gone in fact. Grandpa asked him “what would you do for milk then?” and he said “Why, I’d just go to the store and buy it.” Enter NOAA and the National Weather Service. Both of them proposed to be cut by the “conservatives”.
Say it ain’t so, Joe. The USAToday chain actually crawling up to the bar and saying what everybody knew since the SuperCommittee was announced at the end of July? In other news Might-Makes-Right Wing former favorite (Hey, the RNC paid his back due child support, alimony and property taxes) Samuel Wurzlbach, the Fake Joe Fake Plumber, famous for lying, is running for congress. His former sponsor in crime, Sarah Palin, announced that she won’t run for president. Said “family considerations come first” which is a new concern for her. Probably has a lot to do with the majority of supporters of her running on either the Republican or Tea Party tickets were Democrats.
All in all a productive news day.
Yes, our old friends who took a billion dollar gift from America, paid no taxes…
Got us again. Seems they’re going to make the consumers pay for regulations which prevented them from unannounced and hidden fees.
The smug perfectly manicured bastard interviewed by NBC news said: “People should complain to their congressmen” because Congress told them they’re not allowed to steal (sometimes not allowed) from us and thus they “lost” MONEY THE THIEVING BASTARDS DIDN’T ALREADY HAVE, IT WAS STILL OUR MONEY AND THEY WERE PROHIBITED FROM STEALING IT.
Yes, by those calculations, anybody who buys a watchdog or installs a burglar alarm Owes The Burglars Compensation.
The Smiling Smug with the hands that never touched a shovel said “Well, somebody’s got to make up the cash, it’s just going to have to be the Consumers” .. Like he ever gave two shits about the well being of consumers. Watch as they give out another billion in year end bonus payments, and sneer at us Mere Peasants who dare to believe we shouldn’t be ripped off.
And they wonder why people throw airplanes at their buildings.
and somewhere in there a brief fantasy relationship with Yahoo as an internet service provider and a general screwing to the taxpayers of the City of Irving and Dallas county being thrown in… but I once more digress.
CenturyLink “absorbed” Qwest’s facilities, employees and corporate debts in a process called merger where all duplicated or “redundant” jobs on both sides of the merger were downsized. Meaning XXX number of real people lost their tech and service sector jobs. That’s the way it looks on any prospectus of any merged corporations, in order to convince people to invest more capital in those corporations.
In reality the jobs created would be debt collectors and repossession crews and foreclosure agents.
BUT that’s what they tell the Money People. Those of us who are in the Peasant Majority are told that we should welcome CenturyLink along with the massive tax breaks given on top of the ones they already enjoyed PLUS extras for “Job Creation” in our communities… we’re told that these massive layoffs is somehow an opportunity for those “downsized” out of having a living wage job to get a job with a company who has just laid off about 20 percent of their workforce by eliminating redundant positions.
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. Hmmm… I was told, as was everybody else in America, in Boy Scouts, at Church, in ROTC and later in the Air Force that the U.S. actions in VietNam were for the freedom of the PEOPLE in the R.V.N. Just like the lies told to justify the war in Libya. And Iraq. And Afghanistan. And Nicaragua. And Honduras. And insert the next several “dictatorships” which dare to put their own national interests above the Capitalist Powers.
That’s what I paid and, everybody who works for a “Slave Market” minimum wage Labor Contractor Service such as Labor Ready, Apprentice, Manpower, Kelly…
The “tax” is paid to a Non-Governmental Organization, and is paid before the Worker gets his check. I base the 83% figure on the fact that the workers are paid only 1/6th of what the Parasite Corporation gets for his “product”. Under the various manifestations of the “Right To Get Screwed At Work” law, the workers aren’t allowed to negotiate wages, working conditions, pensions or Insurance through the use of Collective Bargaining. We’re supposed, instead, to go hat-in-hand and beg the employer for a slight fraction more of what is actually owed us. On an individual basis and, under the RTW law, the employer can cut your wages just as quickly as he “gives” them to you.
They can take 5 times what we get, producing absolutely NOTHING themselves.
We’re not allowed to do what the Corporate Masters do, insist on a profit for our product. Nor, according to the laws as interpreted by their Tame Supreme Court, are we even allowed to break even. You can’t go to King Soopers or Safeway and buy a $3 loaf of bread for only a dollar, insisting that that’s all you’ll pay them. If you leave the dollar and take the loaf, they’ll call the Korporate Kontrolled Kops on you and have you arrested.
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 Michele Bachmann was a tax collector. Sarah Palin was an oil industry stooge. The media didn’t conjure these villainesses from whole or rare cloth. Most politicians are corporate functionaries before they bill the public to do it. If they haven’t dedicated their lives expressly to destroying the environment, the social fabric, your job and everyone’s quality of life, they’ve always understood your loss was somebody’s gain, and theirs. Know anyone like that around you? Practically everyone! That’s whose throats you need to wrap your fingers around. Shake the blinders off their eyes with good old-fashioned throttling. Shout them down. Shut them up. Shame and scorn them, the heartless, uninformed, apathetic pricks. Activism begins at the grassroots, pull those weeds from the roots.
The media sets up Bachmann and Palin as characters you love to hate, there for you to pillory in effigy. You can flame them with your wit, call for their heads, but ultimately their pulpits lay beyond your reach, from where they safely goad you at the media’s whim. Wake up. Bachmann and Palin are the effigies. Burning them accomplishes nothing. They’re the poster children rotten apples among the joe public rotten apples which fill the American barrel. Look around you. See all the clueless, amoral, self-serving opportunists? Time to drop the agree-to-disagree, polite society pretense. Take the gloves off and have at ’em.
The RetardiKlan wannabee president is allegedly upset over the song “Cop Killer”. Just in time for Pig Memorial Day, which is tomorrow.
Not upset over her demented followers blowing away Americans including a Judge, and of course children, nor upset over Cops handcuffing and then violently assaulting them for the so called ‘crime’ of “calling them names” like Chickenshit Pig Assholes. Or cops beating a prisoner, handcuffed and helpless and outnumbered at least 5 to one…Marvin Booker, to death in a jail cell in Denver, or cops forcing a REAL man, Oscar Grant, to lay on the ground then shooting him in the back for the ‘crime’ of being black without permission. Or shooting the 7 year old child Alyanna Jones then lying about the circumstances. (they shot her through the wall of her home according to the Pig-loving propaganda show filming them) and they get away with it because of all the really STUPID people, the Back The Badge MORONS who insist that everything a PIG does is legitimate even if it’s illegal.
People tell me that being beaten while handcuffed by the Coward Ass Pigs is “my own fault” because I shouldn’t have “talked back to them”.
These are the same people who will talk back to anybody they feel is helpless. Just too, you know, COWARDLY to talk back to anybody who is in a position of power. Then LIE right through their cop-cum stained teeth about how they “fight for freedom”.
They’ll say “I don’t agree with what you say, but I’ll defend to the death your right to say it… unless it’s somebody wearing a Uniform who’s denying your right to say it”.
I can predict that everybody who answers this with indignant rebukes and indignant defenses of the Pigs beating up and even killing people for talking back, is a pure and simple coward.
Sure, your military and police gave me “freedom of speech”. Freedom to say how wonderful they are but if I deviate from the script I can be punished, and y’all cowardly Back The Badge MORONS will bravely help the Mighty Pigs build their Blue Wall.
I mean, aside from your party lock step voting to cancel Medicare and Social Security for your own mommas as well as ours… nice to see your penchant for Human Sacrifice is still strong, except of course that you’re not going to actually sacrifice YOURSELVES.
But you know how y’all like to say, especially the Libertarian faction and TeaPotties? That you might not agree with what we say but you’ll fight to the death to defend our right to say it?
So, when Lauren Valle was stomped down for criticizing your hero Rand Paul, by three of his Koward Kentucky Komrades, with hundreds of other KKK disciples of “liberty” standing around to make sure nobody interrupted their sick sadistic fun and Rand Paul himself, nobly of course refusing to either “fight to the death” or even tell his chickenshit disciples to stop?
Yeah, that one. And of course Sarah Palin telling the people not to sit down and not to shut up while she was having the Police arrest people and violently drag them from her rally because they didn’t sit down or shut up?
Of course y’all didn’t even do anything to protest that, did you? I can understand that you’re AFRAID of your Komrades because, you know, when you get in your little ol’ Posse you can be pretty vicious.
But to stand up and LIE about how much you’ll risk to fight for “freedom” or “liberty” well…
Yo Mommas must have been so very proud of you.
Until you killed them and ate them….
Since she makes so much political hay over having sacrificed “her own” son to the Military Establishment, maybe she should have a short tutorial on the word Sacrifice.
First, stolen goods, stolen money and humans aren’t viewed as Clean for the Temple. Just like Caiphas couldn’t spend the thirty shekels, because it was the price of blood. Sarah Palin could not in any way OWN her son. He’s another separate human being. Not a possession.
He might consider himself a sacrifice (he’d be wrong) but it would be HIS blood offering, not hers.
Also he doesn’t seem to be dying for the atonement of anybody’s sin, if he DOES get his fascist face blown through the back of his skull it’ll be because he’s in a foreign country enslaving the people, taking their land and oil in the name of the corporations for whom Momma Grizzly does her whorin’. and one of them would get in a good shot while defending his country against Young Sgt Palin.
Not anything similar to a sacrifice.
Meaning that she LIED about being Momma Grizzly as easily as she lied about being a “fiscal conservative”.
The root word in “conservative” is “conserve” and the reason her being a liar is so relevant is that she’ll be HERE next month promoting other lying-ass Republican “conservatives” who conserve absolutely nothing. Steve Bach, for instance, Sally and Lisa the Princess Twins, Doug Bruce.
This is third hand, from politcususaDOTcom, because some of the more so-called conservative respondents to our comments are too damned lazy to follow a link. It’s a recurrent problem and printed in its entirety, same reason.
It’s part of the pattern of dishonesty that defines the entire right wing.
This morning, Malia Litman (owner of MaliaLitman’s “A Rebuttal to the Rogue” blog) alerted PoliticusUSA that she had uncovered a rather large lie Sarah Palin has been peddling to the American public. Read more »
Their Whoremasters like Sarah Palin and the rest of the DumFox crew still refuse to admit that they urge people to KILL (they have to have other people do it because they’re too frightened to murder people themselves). Usually it’s male wannabee hitmen like Jared Loughner, Jim Adkisson, von Brunn, Scott Roeder, Tim McVeigh, Terry Nichols, Erik Rudolf, Local Retard Gary Faulkner and the occasional physically female like Babykiller Shawna Forde, and they have a few other things in common.
They’re usually part of local cults, not exactly “lone wolf” like the Right Wing Hate Media claim. They usually go after people they consider weaklings. And they perceive their Fox News Whoremasters to be speaking literally when they rant and rave and foam at the mouth about a “War” against any form of Non-Fox Thought. Like Sarah Palin urging her demented Disciple Jared Loughner to murder 6 people in Tucson. Lou Dobbs urging Shawna Forde and her crew to Murder (yet another) nine year old American Child. If Gary Faulkner had succeeded in killing some Pakistan citizens, most likely including children, in his Rambo-inspired fantasy quest to take out the ALREADY DEAD Osama bin Laden, who among the Hate-Mongers would take the credit for sending yet another Hate-Filled Wannabee Holy Warrior/Crusader to MURDER HUMAN BEINGS for their political agenda?
The Freakin’ Bureau of Incompetence practically admitted that bin Laden is dead. They published a “wanted poster” that had Somebody Else As The Picture and said as their excuse that nobody has any verified pictures of Osama bin Laden since 2002. So how would the dumbass even know if the Fellow Child Of God who he would end up murdering was actually bin Laden?
So they “laid that myth to rest”, right?
Actually, no. The entire focus of Autism in re Toxic Metals got sidetracked onto vaccines with a mercury preservative. Which, some pointed out, CONTAINED FAR LESS MERCURY THAN THE AMOUNT PRESENTLY IN ENVIRONMENTAL SOURCES and that has to be emphasized because the ENVIRONMENTAL SOURCES somehow dropped out of the equation. Chemical industry, M.I. C., anybody? Like mercury released into the environment from metals refining, or perhaps from the manufacture AND USE of ammunition? Like the mercury fulminate, which is a water-soluble mercury compound, nitrated mercury, explosive, used as a detonator/primer compound.
When it burns, combusts explosively, does exactly what the product is designed to do, it kills one way quickly. Tosses a somewhat more massive chunk of metal in the general direction of a “target”. Meaning, in the case of Wars and Police actions, the primary intent of firearms, A Human Being Whose Life Is Considered To Be Worth Less Than The Life Of The Person Shooting At Him/Her.
When it burns that way, the mercury fulminate isn’t destroyed, it’s vaporized. If you took a two pound brick, broke it, smashed it, turned it into two pounds of dust, it’s still two pounds of the original components of the brick. It didn’t go away. If you dissolve it in water, not as completely as mercury fulminate does, it’s now polluting a larger mass of water and people, other animals and plants can now ingest it.
So, is the prevalence of documented Autism cases around military installations ONLY a result of more accurate reporting, more accurate testing available to Military Dependents?
It WAS described that way about the Vaccines connection. It minimizes the high probability of modern firearms, concentrated in Military Bases, firing ranges etc. being a cause.
Since a lot of the jackass political hacks who feel that more guns in schools will actually reduce school violence ALSO believe that they have the “original intent” of the founding fathers, the mythical group of Holy Men anointed by God Himself to dictate the course of American history and laws long after they died… Let’s hold them to their OWN original intent.
And killing other sea life. Can someone say “Andromeda Strain”? Omega Man. Dr Frankestein. Anybody? Bueller? Anybody?
Some of it is happening, apparently, because of the amounts of Corexant applied. But of course a powerful solvent which will make oil and water mix couldn’t possibly make mutations in something that has a reproductive cycle of say, an hour or two. Nor would any mutations from already laboratory mutated specimens of these microbes (actually single-celled plants) even remotely possibly be pumping out the non-laboratory-controlled mutations doubling every hour or so…
And the dead crabs, worms, starfish etc… being found in the affected area just have no relevance whatsoever. Couldn’t be, nope. Dr Mandy Joye
Of course, too, she’s just an “intellectual” who has studied Marine Biology for like 27 years of college and post graduate and doctorate. And of course the fact that she, unlike Rush Limbaugh or Bill O’Reilly or Sarah Palin or any of the board of directors at BP, actually HAS hands-on (robot hands, it’s a very deep subject…) experience up close and as personal s you can be in an ALVIN submarine… that still wouldn’t mean she’s not some Ivory Tower Prima-Donna unlike the assholes at Fox who get paid to sit at a microphone lying for the Big Oil Companies all day every day…
So, the DumFox leaders became so frightened of the hordes of non-white-anglo-saxons having the majority of the votes, if the representative districts were counted correctly, they thought of a brilliant (in their opinion) plan to skew the results of the census by getting the more ignorant of the White Anglo Saxon Protestant DumFox to boycott the Census, thereby giving them an excuse. Mind you, they’re still operating under the fiction that the Republican and Tea parties are somehow separate entities from each other and that NewsCorp is a separate entity from both. The most hard-core TeaBag morons know this, but prefer to lie about it.
Now, Bush’s anointed replacement as Governor of Texas, Tom DeLay and his ventriloquist dummy Rick GoodHair Perry, forced a redistricting 8 years early after the last census, to insure more Republican dominated districts. They did skew that census, really hard, by spreading a terroristic rumor in minority (but now combined MAJORITY) communities similar to the retarded ones they spread in the Redneck Hoam Skewl Ignorant communities with the current census. GoodHair and Co. ain’t barkin’ real loudly about redistricting almost a decade early this time. Instead, they’re going to make the motion that the Census be disregarded because they themselves broke it. Oh, yeah, that’s right, they’re still pretending that Fox News and Rush Limbaugh don’t actually work for them and Fox is saying they’re fair, balanced and have no agenda.
While she was speaking… she had a 71 year old Former CIA analyst BEATEN by Capitol Pigs for “heckling” her… not by screaming denunciations, but by quietly standing up and turning his back on her LIES. Like Sarah Palin having people beaten and arrested for not sitting down and not shutting up while she was lying HER ass off about “don’t sit down and don’t shut up” You must to sit quietly while the Fuhrer speaks, then applaud at appropriate moments! Alle Sieg HEIL!
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.
Jesus what a bore! Remember when SNL lampooned Sarah Palin’s first prime time TV interview by reenacting it verbatim? They could do that with Obama’ humorless addresses, I think it would make great theater, but the joke’s already abysmally old. Maybe we need a drinking game where everyone paying close attention could drink the moment President Obama mouthed a phrase that wasn’t a cliche or platitude. Alright, not a drinking game.
