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.

Wisconsin election close, but no cigar, if there was a cigar

The recall defeat in Wisconsin brings to mind Emma Goldman’s famous adage: “If voting changed anything, they’d make it illegal.”
Now we’ll never know if a Democrat majority in Madison would have behaved any different than a herd of Republicans. I doubt it. Activists are patting themselves on the back for their partial success, saying the effort was worth it, which is the usual consolation for losers, and ignores the fact that many of Wisconsin’s present Democratic Party legislators already betray their constituents. Here’s another quote, by a Japanese engineering professor I had in college who used to say in broken English: “You build bridge. It fall down. No partial credit.” Imagine what he’d have thought of a bridge to nowhere.
