So why the fuck hasn't the world beaten a path to my door?
Posted by Fred W at 2:03 AM
And so do you.
But, unfortunately, many of you don't realize it.
And that has made all the difference.

WTF ever happened to bloggy apps that allowed us to pile on when we found MOST RIGHTEOUS TRUTH out thereTM?
How can I echo the bold, righteous words of my brothers like A SILBER if you don't let me link to them?
I am terribly put out. And you can quote me.

WHAT IS IT GOOD FOR?
Uh... absolutely big bucks for the Masters of WarTM that pull the strings of their Washingtonian marionettes. Raytheon! O! Raytheon! How many millions per kill did'ja make for the recent fusillade of Tomahawks in our newest and bestest war for FreedomTM and PeaceTM and Good Shit Like ThatTM in Libya? Even if ya kill't nobody, how much did'ja make? And even if ya kil't only women and children an' suckling babies, how much did'ja make? What will the quarterly report say? Will the shareholders weep or rejoice? And if they weep, will it be for the slaughter of innocents or for the loss of earnings? And if they rejoice - well, how can any human being with at least a shard of their soul left stand with those who rejoice in the death of innocents?
Never underestimate the depravity of humankind when real money is on the line.

But, gentle readers, you surely know by now that no such deal with God is in the offing.
So, what do we do - those of us with a soul inside this carcass we call a body- to stop this inhumanity (much of which is happily wrought by our "exceptional" nation)?
WITHHOLD YOUR SUPPORT.
NO donations to Dems, those traitorous, sociopathic scumbags.
NO political action on behalf of ANY Democrat.
LIGHT CANDLES in support of the DEATH of every single mother-fucking tea-bagging, hypocritical republican on the face of God's green earth... but pray for the souls of all who are yet within the reach of God's grace...
I jest, but I wish I didn't.
If you ain't pissed, you ain't awake.

I'd make a deal with God
And I'd get him to swap our places
(You'd) be runnin' from the man
(You'd) be runnin' from all hope
(You'd) be runnin' to that building
With no hope at all...

Ah, how Leni Riefenstahl would laugh!
First they came for the white collar unions
And I said nothing because, although I sported a white collar, I wasn't in a union
Then they came for the skilled workers and their unions
And I said nothing, cause, I was, like, not a UAW member, y'know?
Then they came for the ILGWU
And I said nothing, because, hey! I ain't a woman, and garments are for fags, no?
Then they came for the public sector employees
And I said nothing, 'cause those lazy bastards get paid more than I do! WTF up widdat?
Then they came for the burger flippers at MacDonalds
And I said nothing, 'cause who cares how little them burger flippers get paid, long as we get our Big Macs, eh?
Then they came for me
And I was too fucking fat and lazy to be moved... so they shot my sorry ass.

...different and a bit cynical.
While there is no doubt that DADT repeal is a hard-fought victory, I can't help but wonder why, given the usual right-wing obstructionism encountered by the forces of "progress," the bill managed to pass. I find it hard to believe that the virulent homophobes in Congress suddenly sprouted bleeding hearts and were thus moved to do the right thing. Could it be that the military-industrial-security-financial complex finally realized that "full spectrum dominance" requires as many bodies as they can get their claws on?
LGBT Americans can now die openly fighting criminal wars launched on false pretenses. But they still can't get married.
You should too.

"Bethink Yourselves!": An Ancient Voice Raised Against Modern Evil
Bradley Manning is a US citizen, yet he has been kept for months in solitary confinement under conditions that we would call torture if an enemy were responsible for such treatment. All without being tried or convicted of anything. All because he blew the whistle on America's war crimes.
The man is a hero who deserves our gratitude, admiration, and support.

And the landmark reads, "Hell, this way."
It is perhaps appropriate that Shailagh Murray, aka the Devil Incarnate, shares the byline.

Having lost all hope of accomplishing anything worthwhile through the various overlord-approved outlets for non-threatening political action, I have decided that returning to this blog is essential for my continued sanity. What little there is left of it.

Eric Arthur Blair*, where are you now that we need you?
I just received the following email from OFA:
Fred --The only relationship the 2,074 page disaster called the "Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act" (or whatever they're calling it today; in any case it's H.R. 3590) bears to "reform" is that it's the kind of school these corrupt bastards in the Senate should be forced to "attend." Oh, and they should take President "Hope and Change" with them. Call my Senators and ask them to help what? "Ring in reform?!?" Ring this, motherfuckers!
If we don't pass health reform, millions of Americans will be trapped in a broken status quo, unable to pay their bills or see a doctor when they need one.
More and more employers will drop coverage for employees. And Medicare and Medicaid will blow a hole through our budget.
There's too much at stake to not get this done. That's why OFA supporters have made 849,856 calls to Congress in support of health reform since August.
And that's why today, with the Senate locked in last-minute negotiations, our goal is to hit one million calls.
Can you help? Please call your senators now and help us "ring in reform." Then click here to let us know you called.
It's quite clear that our Democrat-controlled Congress (a wholly owned subsidiary of [fill in the name of a Fortune 500 company - any one will do]) has finally gotten to where it wanted to go all along: so far up corporate America's ass that it can see Dick Armey's feet. The pitched battle between the two parties was all for show, nothing more than drama and posturing to gin up political passion and bring in the Benjamins. How our luckless (D) leaders must envy their (R) counterparts! The (R)s flaunt their egomania and their base laps it up; the (D)s, on the other hand, must fake humility and pretend to be concerned for the hoi polloi**.
What really depresses me, however, is not the all-too predictable behavior of our self-interested elected officials. It's the prospect that, in spite of the fact that the HCR bill is little more than a thinly disguised giveaway to the for-profit health insurance monopolies, OFA will no doubt hit its one million call goal. And that, not all that long ago, I would have been one of the 150,144 that got them there.
*That would be the name what George Orwell's mum and da gave 'im.
**Speaking of pleonasms, yes, I realize that translates to "the the many."

...that's a pleonasm.

Glenn Greenwald - Salon.com
In remarks about domestic security threats, Rep. Sue Myrick of Charlotte said, "Look at who runs all the convenience stores across the country". . .We have not yet invented suitable language to do such stupidity justice.
Myrick’s comments came during a speech to the conservative Heritage Foundation last week about what she called Americans’ lack of readiness to deal with future terrorist attacks. During a question-and-answer session, she spoke about danger within the country.
"You know, and this can be misconstrued, but honest to goodness (husband) Ed and I for years, for 20 years, have been saying, 'You know, look at who runs all the convenience stores across the country.' Every little town you go into, you know?" . . .
