This rock could change the world if thrown through the right window

Time Magazine coverBy “power the world” does Time Magazine mean HEAT IT?! To a rolling boil? –How incredibly inane. This piece of rock’s jagged asymmetry (probably to differentiate it from a lump of coal – the other fossil fuel) and its other-earthly lighting, mean to suggest shale has a meteoric value. The disingenuous cover story, “why shale can solve the energy crisis”, is a curve ball pretending the problem is supply not demand, and FRACKING is the hero not the terminator. Let’s throw this projectile back like we would ordinary crowd control ordnance deployed to disorient waking masses. I think it’s fitting that Time has given its cover to a rock. In the hands of children it’s the bane of US and Israeli occupiers, it’s what defended Tahrir Square, and it will probably be the only sidearm we’ll be left to bear as our own occupiers try to forestall global revolution. But it’s enough.

Time Mag trio wants to stop violence. Whose? Lone psychos not sociopaths

OMG YES. OF COURSE. STOP THE VIOLENCE. Wait. By whose pinheaded definition? “Too many children are dying” exclaims Gabrielle Giffords! But looking into the eyes of these posterchild sociopaths, you know they’re only talking about domestic gun deaths, the collateral damage of our Western culture of violence. Time Magazine isn’t taking us yahoos to task on football, rape, enslavement and WAR. These three neo law-enforcers are not talking about American systemic acts of aggression, one Sandy Hook after the next behind the curtain of this theatrical “OUR children!” frenzy, the genocidal capitalist global war on people.

Yet a fourth term of Clintonism? Why US liberalism is bankrupt and without any bailout that would work for it

The Democratic Party has reduced our supposed US corporate financed and run ‘democracy’ down over the last quarter of a century down to whether we are all led by our throats to another 4 years of Country Bush and sons, or 4 more years of Slick Family Clinton, or not? That’s it. That’s what you get for ‘leadership’. You will be persuaded one way or the other by corporate advertising to choose Pepsi or Coke, depending on which image pulls your heart strings the most? Gurgle-Gurgle….. Gasp!!!!!! ‘Your Vote’ doesn’t really get counted when it is left to Pepsi and Coke to do the count.

So just how bankrupt is US liberalism? As bankrupt as those people they say they so totally oppose? Can’t be… can it? Let’s turn to the Time Magazine cover of this week and read its lead article behind the Slick Willy face and consider if that could actually be so? The title with Bill Clintons’ slimy mug and a globe in front of him is titled, ‘Five Ideas that are changing the world (for the better)’. After all, Slcik is now like Al Gore and Jimmy Carter, a Democrat liberals’ treasure trove of supposed brilliant insight! Don’t laugh. You know that this is just exactly how American liberals believe! So what are the ‘5 ideas’ that our genius Bill speaks there of?

Idea Number 1 of the 5 in his ‘ the case for optimism’ is … don’t laugh now!…. ‘PHONES MEAN FREEDOM’!!!! Hey, all that cell phone proliferation is increasing Freedom around the world! Yes, I kid you not… Cell phones are cheap so everybody now is holding one, maybe even juggling several of them in the air all at one time?!!!! Bill says that this is leading to the proliferation of Freedom.

Idea Number 2 of the 5 is that the world medical community is winning the fight against AIDS and by extension, all disease! ‘HEALTH COMMUNITIES PROSPER’ says Bill, and now sodas are kept out of public schools in the US!

Idea Number 3 of the 5 is GREEN ENERGY EQUALS GOOD BUSINESS! Brazil is now planning to NOT cut down its last remaining rain forests at the same velocity as before, even as it no longer has them left standing to cut down. Slick is ecstatic! And Germany has more ‘sun power energy’ being made! And small farmers of South Africa are ‘selling carbon credits on the world market’! O’ Hallelujah and PTL!

Idea Number 4 of 5 is WOMEN RULE! Left unsaid in Slick’s arguments on this one is that wife Hillary, the Pentagon whore, is ruling over us. Nuf said… Bill says women are running the show in Rwanda, too. Gag us for that…

Idea Number 5 of 5 is THE FIGHT FOR THE FUTURE IS NOW because Slick says enemies are now talking to each other, I guess thinking of how the Democratic Party hacks are chatting it up so with the Republican Party hacks. And thus ends this episode’s wisdom of one of US liberalism’s senior spokes-dudes. US liberalism really is now all bankrupt and we cannot bailout it out no matter how hard we might ALL try. People like Slick Willy will have to be shot right alongside of all the Dick Cheney’s of our country. That’s your vote that can count.

Time Magazine spites its face

This week’s cover of Time has to rank at their most scurrilous, a baldfaced attempt to evoke the iconic National Geographic cover, this time figuratively defaced. It’s Mona Lisa given a Howl; The Green Revolution’s “Neda” shot in the head, instead of the evocative-deficient not-in-your-face mortal wound elsewhere. If the Taliban cut off this young woman’s nose as a warning to others not to abandon their families, Time Magazine wants to broaden the extortion. Here’s “What Happens If We Leave Afghanistan.” But instead of counterspinning the Wikileaks’ Afghan War Logs, Time’s imagery reinforces the triumph of the leaked documents. This is the barbarity which will face the Afghans collaborators, those unmasked by the leaks, and those who might still be induced, in spite of the now certainty their confidence will be betrayed.

Time’s editors assure us that the young Afghan woman is safe from reprisal, held at an undisclosed location protected by armed guard. Do they take responsibility for her “If We Leave Afghanistan?” Time’s exploitation of this young Afghan is direct extortion.
