Rip-off movie of the day “Warriors”

I think that's the title. Anyway, story line: Older brother runs away from home at age 16. Younger brother grows up resenting older brother. So far they got Cain and Abel kind of sideways, but the story isn't copyrighted in the first place and they put enough poetic license to it that we won't notice, right? Older brother is now some kind of Ultimate Fighting Championship champion. Younger brother hunts him down and challenges him to the Almost Ultimate Grudge Match. Warriors. See, it's shit like that which keeps me away from movie theaters. The last movie I watched during its opening run was South Park-- Bigger, longer, uncut. The first time I watched Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid all the way through was two years ago. I still haven't watched C.H.U.D.(Cannibalistic Humanoid Underground Dwellers) which has been available for a full 79% of my life. Buckets o' Blood, same thing. Although if I really wanted to spend 97 minutes of my life watching some mindless glorification of Murderous Evil might as well go whole hog, yes? Watch commercials for the Army, video games and SUVs.

So there were a couple of words I had to look up when I first heard this

I was a kid at the time. The rant-song was called "The Americans" and written by a Canadian. He was apparently pissed off because the United States, arguably the wealthiest nation on earth at the time, wasn't getting foreign aid from the poorest countries. Which, really, we WERE, in the form of Corporate Tribute from the Banana Republics, wholly owned by American business interests, supported at taxpayer expense by the Military who put down, past and present, any rebellions by the people who are "owned" by for instance fruit, coffee, cocaine (most of the worlds supply is actually legal, same with opium) cheap beef, and other commodity corporations, when the people of these "free" countries get tired of supporting our decadence. Which was one of the first words he objected to being used, "decadent and war-mongering". Apparently he felt that America was being libeled. The best defense against a charge of libel is if the comments are actually true, as in the case of just about everybody the dude bitched and whined about. Warmongering, for instance, the art of selling Death at a hefty profit. At the time "we" were bombing the living dogshit out of several countries against whom we had never actually declared war, for instance both of the Republics of VietNam. At taxpayer expense and, just like now, apparently frighteningly obvious profit of the "defense" industry. Decadence, you say? I sure do. Witness the "wedding planning" reception offered as entertainment/envy value on Good Morning America while Americans were being turned out of jobs and homes in the wake of Capitalist Greed Heads making money from selling bogus mortgage profit margins as though they were real cash. A suggested reception line, catered at a cost of 20 thousand dollars, more than a years pay at minimum wage, the minimum wage the Decadent Warmongers call "too extravagant", featuring chilled fruit and flowing molten chocolate. (produced in countries where the minimum wage is about a dollar a day, and enforced by U.S. government actions like Military intervention within those countries and Immigration Control here, make them thar peasant slaves stay on the plantation) The way it operates is you take a piece of chilled fruit on a skewer, and put it under the chocolate "waterfall" for a delicious, scrumptious chocolate coated treat! They also used the term "Decadent" to describe the experience. Did this Byron McGregor or Gordon Sinclair (there seems to be some confusion as to which whiny-ass Canuckistani wrote and performed the piece of shit) or their heirs ever object to THAT use of the word? He sniveled about a flood on the Yalu and Yang-tse rivers when he was a mere chilld, and Americans providing about the only foreign assistance at the time. That would be when the Flying Tigers, a Mercenary Air Force, were supporting General Chiang Kai-czek in an unofficially supported war against Japan and the Chinese Emperor. They were bombing, counting our official ally in that war Chairman Mao, far more Chinese citizens than Japanese. Disguised an paid in the form of

“conservative” Pentagon budget includes NASCAR

No, really, the "Conservative" TeaPotty and Republitards have voted to continue funding sponsorship of NASCAR teams as part of their "Recruitment" budget. Yep, get the kids into the Murder Machine any way they can. So-Called conservatives don't even care about their own kids. Much less anybody elses' kids. Hell, they see a kid and they reach for their AK 47. Why do Republican TeaTard Minutemen Klan Militia members Hate American Kids? Why do they hate the English language so much that they continue to call their greedy overfed herd of Hogs "conservative" when it's obvious they conserve absolutely NOTHING? Leaving alone "patriotism" and "freedom" and "morality" and "family values" and Christianity. Just a bunch of babykillers as far as I can see. Why don't the NASCAR drivers go into the military, seein' as how they're so all fired up about going to other countries, taking everything from the people and killing anybody who objects? (especially the kids, them Republicans sho' does love them some babykilling) Couldn't possibly be that they're not healthy enough, they brag all the time about being Professional Athletes. Then again, so does Rush Limbaugh's equally Chickenshit brother David. Guess they're as skilled at lying as they are at being Gutless Wonders.

Bush/Blair have a fall guy!

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. The defector, Rafid Ahmed Alwan al-Janabi, said in an interview with the Guardian that he had fabricated claims of mobile biological weapons and clandestine factories made to German intelligence officials throughout 2000. Former U.S. President George W. Bush and other high U.S. officials cited the threat posed by Iraqi biological weapons as justification for the U.S.-led invasion in 2003. No such weapons were found and years of political and sectarian bloodshed followed In Iraq, resulting in more than 100,000 mostly civilian deaths. "Maybe I was right, maybe I was not right," Janabi, codenamed "Curveball" by U.S. and German intelligence officials, told the newspaper. "I had a problem with the Saddam regime," he said. "I wanted to get rid of him and now I had this chance." The information from Janabi formed the basis of a 2003 speech by former U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell before the United Nations Security Council. The Guardian said Janabi had told a German official about mobile bioweapons trucks during 2000. The German secret service, the BND, which had identified Janabi as a Baghdad-based chemical engineer, approached him in March of that year and again in 2002 looking for inside information about Iraq. "They gave me this chance. I had the chance to fabricate something to topple the regime," Janabi said. "Believe me, there was no other way to bring about freedom to Iraq. There were no other possibilities." (Writing by Karolina Tagaris, editing by Chris Wilson) So in other words, they based their claims on the word of one man who had a hateful grudge against Saddam Hussein. Now, if they'd found one of Saddam's FRIENDS to testify against him that would have been enough evidence to launch an investigation. The Bush/Blair doctrine was that "if there's a 1% chance" they had a duty to launch the war, and destroy the economy of every country involved and kick the props out from under the rest of the global economy as well. How about THIS? Since a lot of the Leaders of the "externally induced coup" claim to be fundamentalist Christians or Zionist Jews or even Muslims, (Saudis, Jordan, Mubarak-the-ex-satrap-of-Egypt, Turkey...) why not do what Jewish/Christian/Sharia law commands, and judge the accusers by the same standards they used to make their judgments? A lot of people, even non-religious, know the saying, or at least part of it, "Judge not, lest ye also be judged..." and the rest of it "for by the same measure with which ye judge shalt thou

How long before the Extremist Rightwing Conspiracy theory?

Because FOX and their subsidiaries like the "Astroturf" TeaBags, employers of Professional and Amateur Liars on a massive scale, would have somebody within their ranks who would think it a good idea to spring the notion that the recent spate of Oil Well disasters were "rigged" not by the sheer STUPIDITY of the Oil Corporations and their Greedy minions, but are instead a sinister plot by Anarchists and Environmentalists in order to embarrass the Oil Corporations. Of course they wouldn't have proof or even Evidence, because their intended audience is really stupid to begin with. And there would be no way to gain any such evidence other than fabricating it, like they fabricated that "Kenyan birth certificate" a few months ago. Truth would not be on their side so they'll avoid anything resembling Truth. It's their way. It would also run counter to their argument if anybody on their side said this, so I'll say it: Those of us in the Environmentalist Left don't make money from shit like that. The Oil Corporations DO. The Anti-war Left doesn't make huge profits off Non-War, (although every war that ISN'T fought is a HUGE profit for everybody in the world, including us. Trickle Up economics) And the Oil Corporations, on the other make profits that are the worst kind of Obscenity from every war that IS fought. Since every good Conspiracy Theory, especially those that involve actual crimes, involves somebody making a profit.

Repeat these themes as a meditative mantra, or we off the Fairy…

A series of lies we're told to believe.   Freedom comes from economic security.Economic security comes from capitalism, but only if capitalism is unfettered by government intervention like Taxation... the tax funded military actions globally to secure capitalism are somehow not massive government intervention. Freedom isn't free, The Military services collective are a career path to financial security and social status. Unemployed veterans are bums, USO and Operation Home Front aren't proof that The Military isn't a self-sustaining enterprise. The sacrifices of the "troops" and their families are necessary to sustain Freedom. Freedom comes from economic security. Economic security comes from capitalism, but only if capitalism is unfettered by government intervention. Like Taxation. The Tax-funded military actions globally to secure capitalism are somehow not massive government intervention. If you keep chanting these things then everything will magically work out. Why not? Fox News does exactly that. And adds that if anybody disagrees it breaks the magic feel-good spell. But if every kid in the world claps his hands and says "I believe in Fairies" then Tinkerbell doesn't die.

Difference between College Recruiter and Army Recruiter again

So Maryland Public Schools have been administering the ASVAB tests to students wholesale, as in every kid takes the test. This is the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery. I suppose the Maryland Board of Education didn't ask very many questions about Uncle Sugar giving them FREE testing materials and evaluations. What a "(Trojan)gift horse". So the tests have an Opt-Out, option 8, which makes the test from the Army point of view anonymous. There was a loophole in the original agreement. Option 8 was not available. Until now. The Board of Education and the Maryland Legislature wised up a bit. So the Recruiters were contacting the kids not only with the best scores, but for one Really Damn Important part of what the ASVAB measures... Suggestibility. The willingness to follow orders and be stupidly obedient. Clever, eh? The PentaGoons got a low cost database of the most vulnerable kids, the ones who could be most easily (mis)led to believe any lies the Recruiters give them. And demonstrates areas where the Targeted CHILD can be most easily (mis)informed about "opportunities". Where the recruiter knows the kid by name, phone number, school computer network chat and email usernames... Stuff that Other Child Predators would be rightfully denied access to. "Oh, it's ok, we're not seducing the kids with sex or (illegal) drugs, we're just convincing them to join the Murder Machine and kill other kids in other countries, or, if the Pentagon so chooses, this country as well" (all enemies, foreign and domestic Think not? The United States Government especially the Army, UNTIL 1911 didn't grant American Indians citizenship rights, (like being off the reservation without Military Permission, under pain of death, as "renegades") Which gave the Army open season on any Indian, man woman or child, who didn't obey the Martial Law imposed by the Conquerors. It's the reason given for the Murder of Sitting Bull, and for the Little Ouachita Massacre. My very favorite reason not to trust the Army aside, they're given through the use of these ASVAB tests a BlackOps Psychological Warfare weapon to use against American KIDS. Now, are we ready for a far darker side to this, darker even than the perverted seduction of children into the Business of Mass Murder? It would also show which Children would be most likely to resist. The Database of potential dissidents suddenly grows larger. Oh, and with the kids' addresses, phone numbers, social security numbers, (so they can freeze their assets "in case of national emergency") date of birth and with a few math tools like the statistics analyses used to identify potential al Qa'eda sympathizers in the "liberated" nations of Iraq, Afghanistan and everywhere else in the world. Using those tools, they could figure out the highest probability of who the "terrorist" kids are and who their closest friends are. Same, in reverse, for the "good" kids, the ones most likely to be seduced. Kind of an Online Predator Drone aimed directly at American Kids. Talk about your basic "bringing the War home".
