The sweltering summer of betrayal just continued unabated, the grand scheme of the insurance industry and it’s bought and paid for lackeys in Congress enters the next phase. The August recess was always the time for the Battle of the Bulge of the usurers and schemers against any sort of meaningful health care reform. The stall tactics were ensured by the traitor Blue Dogs and the slimy and thoroughly corrupt Max Baucus from mighty Montana with all of it’s electoral clout, once the bill was pushed into the fall it was time to send out the goons.
Of course I refer to the town hall disruptions and the angry mobs who have been sent forth from their bund halls to poison any sort of reasonable discourse just as surely as the SA did in 1930’s era Germany. And it’s working too, of course the corporatist media does it’s part in portraying the beserkers as just citizens who are fed up with mounting debts (strange that they were nowhere to be found when Bush had the national credit card) and are out in true American fashion dissenting. This of course is bullshit, while there are a number of really disenfranchised and scared people showing up it is the agent provacateurs sent forth by phony Astroturf organizations and hotheads riled up by the fanatic Glenn Beck who are infiltrating and mixing in with the legitimate protesters. Now again, I emphasize that there was absolutely NO such sort of organized ‘protests’ against the Bushreich but hey, when the money is going to fund ChristoNazi outfits like Blackwater to kill the sand niggers to many of the mouthbreathers and haters it’s money well spent even if their grandkids kids will be going to bed cold and hungry for their present foolishness.
The biggest disconnect among Americans on social programs is that they themselves actually have benefitted from gubmint aid and I dare any of the red baiters to be true to their convictions (HAH!) and just refuse to collect Medicare and Social Security but that won’t happen. The red state fascists invoke Jesus Christ, probably the biggest long haired, librul, socialist troublemaker of the past two millenium yet ignore his preaching of compassion for the poor and his warnings of false prophets and hypocrisy. When in the fuck did Dick Armey last wash the feet of a beggar and you can be goddamned sure that Jesus wouldn’t own a gun were he to return today. The REAL Jesus, not the bastardized version worshipped by town hall trogs and their RepubliKKKan consorts was the one who chased the moneychangers out of the temple and not vice versa. Note that in regards to moneychangers that I just stumbled across the following link out on Reuters that there is yet another fleecing of taxpayers afoot
, this time to prop up the toilet paper ‘assets’ of the bonus baby banks for their rapidly deteriorating commercial property portfolios. Any sort of seriously fucked over Americans should be grabbing their pitchforks and making a beeline for the office of Treasury Secretary and Wall Street protector Timothy Geithner’s office over this one becaus it’s gonna do far more harm to them than the bitter pill of a national health care plan that competes with insurance goliaths. Then to really get down to it all it’s not the looters at the Treasury and the Fed that are the problem, it’s the ‘nigger’ in the White House.
No matter what I personally think of Barack Obama’s abysmal failings to this point, largely the result of compromising, rolling over and playing footstool to Wall Street pigs and engaging in silly assed staged farces like the ‘beer summit’ the man is facing a king hell toxic stew of roiling racism in this country. The demagogues who serve as a protection racket for the oligarchy and the blood barters in the Military Industrial Complex are crafting their propaganda to capitalize on his skin color and with every invocation of reverse racism there are tens of thousands of Bruce Pardos and George Sodinis out there just getting more unstable, like wet sticks of dynamite and one of these days very soon one or more of them are going to show up at a town hall meeting or even better in the eyes of the white supremacist Palinist movement take a shot at Obama. There is already a report of firearms being carried into one of these gatherings
in Tennessee (a land where William Jennings Bryan still is as popular as Jesus and Jack Daniels) and with the slow boiling pot of economic collapse (someone is killing and eating pet horses here in Florida
) many more of the flotsam and jetsam of American looter capitalism are reaching the breaking point.
You can count on the deranged instigators like Glenn Beck to continue to egg them on until the day comes when there will be blood.
Just my two cents over the mornin’ cup o’ joe
