The system lied… same as always…

The orientation for Jury selection banged on and on about the so-called ‘fact’ that the Revolution was fought and every subsequent Imperial as well, to give us the right to trial by jury. Bullshit. Also the “patriotism” of Americans taking … Continue reading

nine-eleven-zero-one, Corporate Pirates got hit

This started as a reply to a comment about the NFL and other Corporate Thieves ripping off America and demanding we show homage to their empire. Above and beyond the money the sports fanatics pay for their really stupid entertainment. … Continue reading

a slight correction on the earlier post.

OK so I lost a neat little correction. So here I go rebuilding it. The hot dog thing was a 100th anniversary of the hot dog maker and their annual eating contest. Still worthless, stupid… still gluttony in the name … Continue reading

Lady Gaga performance at half-time deemed Satanic

I didn’t watch the show. As far as I know it was some show about fooz-ball or something like that, a bunch of millionaires getting paid to run around on the grass hitting each other and chasing balls. And it’s … Continue reading

How do you stay in touch with a loved one halfway across the world

This is raw bullshit of the highest order. It incorporates the theme that the U.S. Global Police State is actually “fighting for our freedom” or for that matter, just drop the possessive and say it’s fighting for freedom. Then it … Continue reading

Nostril Dumb-ass joins anti-Russian chorus

No, really. There’s a large body of Pro-Exeptionalism propaganda on the Smithsonian and Nat Geo and Discovery and Science Channels… all of whom had a respectable reputation until they were bought out by Rupert Murdoch. One show yesterday (never watch … Continue reading

So called “patriots day” 911

 Means I get to pick up your lost or blew-off-your-antenna because-you-don’t-know flag-etiquette-and-put-a-87-cent-walmart-flag-on your-motor-vehicle and you’re about as smart as you are a “real” patriot.

Iwo Jima, the Veterans of Foreign Wars and Memorial Day

What’s happy about the Fourth of July?

AYFKM? Even “have a nice day” has more credibility, or have a holiday that’s happy. Should our national day of flag waving, specifically OUR celebration of patriotism as citizens of an ever broadening, ever more savage repressive empire, remind us … Continue reading

More on the Anti-Muslim, Anti-Jewish, Anti-Christian 9/11 memorial hate-fest

American Flag DIY

When’s the next flag-waving fest? Will it be the anniversary of 9/11? We missed July 4th, but maybe the next tea party will do. How about a concession booth where we sell modified little American flags, or upgrade theirs for … Continue reading

Operation Home Front = fake patriotism

Enough already. If you “support” the troops or the war, then why don’t you actually “support” them? Dig down deep and pay your God-damn taxes to fund it. Can’t afford the war under the current Tax Scheme? Too GOD-DAMNED BAD. … Continue reading

“My Country right or wrong” guarantees country always Wrong.

Because it gives the warmonger faction a free pass to do whatever they wish with a built in automatic “patriotic” support. Wrap political bullshit with “The Flag” and all you get is a filthy smelly flag. The same with the … Continue reading

Republicans slit their own throats.

Ok, not literally although that WOULD be an entertaining prospect. The Republicans in Congress are dropping like a jet-propelled rock in popularity and why? Because they declared War on Obama last spring. The issue that triggered it wasn’t Health Care, … Continue reading

Why “unquestioning belief” is not Faith.

Either in religion or “patriotism”. There’s a Catholic book called “The Lives of the Saints” (actually an encyclopedia of Saints, quite a few volumes) And one argument that got dug out of the repository concerning a trial for Heresy, wherein … Continue reading
