You think I am a fool but you are a greater fool than I am.
– Sitting Bull
Helicopter Ben Bernanke spoke Wednesday at the first press conference in history conducted by the high priest of the temple of moneychangers formally known as the Federal Reserve. Mr. Green Shoots as usual was dapper with his costly suit and professorial clipped beard, the lighting reflecting off of his bald head and shooting off in waves of positivity porn thanks to well rehearsed talking points sprinkled with focus group tested terms such as “headwinds”, designed to put a sunny side up sheen on the former Time Man of the Year’s message. Bernanke’s wondrous Quantitative Easing 2 (QE2) program as is not obvious to anyone except idiots, cynical politicians and top level finance industry scoundrels has been an abject disaster when it comes to anything other than destroying the value of the dollar, driving a huge spike in gas and food prices and igniting waves of global unrest.
And I guess that I just don’t know
– Lou Reed, Heroin
Zombie Banks, Zombie Jesus – In the aftermath of Easter, the Fed and King Ben have administered the kiss of the sweet, sweet spike into the vein of the banking monstrosity with dog whistle language that QE3 will soon be coming. After the afternoon’s regurgitation of balderdash that was so lame as to make a George W. Bush presser seem as a gem like fountain of rare and exalted truths the markets did what any junkie does when the next fix arrives. Stocks and the winner’s circle that is the DJIA (Dick Jammed In Ass) hit a multi-year high while the dollar continues to collapse showing the complete erosion of reality based economics as compared to the crack ho economy for which Chairman Ben is both pusher and pimp. The finance oligarchy mugwump Bernanke was lobbed softballs repeatedly and one gets the feeling that the entire charade was scripted from the get go. For an example of the utterly incomprehensible nature of Bernanke’s answers get a load of this one:
“While it’s very, very important for us to try to help the economy create jobs and to support the recovery, I think every central banker understands that keeping inflation low and stable is absolutely essential to a successful economy”
Keeping inflation low? It is obvious that he hasn’t been to the fucking grocery store lately or for that matter a gas station. The very fact that energy and food costs are omitted from core inflation stats would in any sort of educated society trigger the bullshit detectors immediately, unfortunately we here in America don’t live in one. That the Fed press conference is being hailed as indicative of a new era of openness speaks of both the dire state of idiocy, willful blindness and ineptitude that has taken hold over the past thirty years and gradually grown into a voracious and incurable form of crotch rot fungus. Bernanke, like Atlas shrugged, downplaying the rotten future for jobseekers, such a shameful and woebegone situation that there were reportedly around 938,000 applicants turned away from McJobs during the trumpeted hiring spring spree for Mickey D’s. What Dear Chairman in his innate arrogance and maniacal certitude did was dance around and run out the clock, leave the heavy lifting about the rancid state of the American economy to a guy like Wal-Mart CEO Mike Duke who dared to utter the unthinkable and that the shoppers at his florescent discount emporiums for ever more expensive Chinese goods are GASP – running out of money!
OK, So Now Fucking Prove It’s Real Goddammit!: In a stunning, beautifully timed and theretofore unannounced move on Wednesday morning the White House released the official version of Barack Obama’s birth certificate. That giant sucking sound that was heard in the aftermath was the asshole of the Donald doing an extended puckering. Of course though it will never be enough for the low grade half-wits that are the birthers, the teabaggers and the cynical assholes seeking to profit off of their idiocy. Rather than just let the entire fucking circus die, the corporate media of course spins reality on its head in order to suck in ratings, hey this is Murka. MSNBC led with the story of the ridiculous ass clown publisher of the borderline retard gazette otherwise known as World Net Daily claiming that Obama was not born in the USA, Farrah, who sports a nifty dirty sanchez mustache in his bio pic justifiably has his panties in a wad because of the obvious hit on sales for his upcoming slimefest book. Farrah, like Trump is obviously in it all for the money and I guess that Glenn Beck got out while the getting was good having extracted millions of dollars from morons to fund his phony populist schtick as well as his plush digs in tony New Canaan, Connecticut. This being America, a land where P.T. Barnum once famously observed “there’s a sucker born every minute”, H.L. Mencken nailed as “nobody ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American people” and W.C. Fields chipped in with his words of advice to the Farrahs, Becks and Trumps to “never wisen up a chump”. So while Obushma presented the paper the Republicans and neocon schemers were already well into their next step, LIE. The Adolf Hitler maxim of the big lie continues to be the gift that keeps on giving to right-wing scum like Frank Luntz and the rest of the degenerate pigfuckers who sure as shit didn’t need fucking experiments on lab rats to determine that the pea brain of the average scumbagger is as pliable as a wad of play doh shaped into a pocket pussy just waiting to be impregnated with the seeds of the next whopper.
Let’s get one thing straight though, I am no defender of Obama but rather than invent silly fantasies to peddle to pathological bigots, brokedick losers and retrogressive bible whackers there are more than enough REAL legitimate beefs with the man and his fascist lite agenda. Obama has not met one serious Bush criminal policy that his administration hasn’t defended, tinkered with an made it worse or condoned by refusing to overturn. A series of campaign promises quickly became nullified when the parties were over and the majority of voters went back into their four year cycle of hibernation. The rottenness of the Obama administration began with the appointment of the ill-mannered, borderline psychotic and crooked little pit viper Rahm Emanuel and went from there into dragging back Clinton era ghouls and Robert Rubin Wall Street scam artists, retaining Bush Secretary of War Robert Gates and reappointing the deranged Bernanke. He had the pustulent anti-gay pig Rick Warren give the invocation at the inaugural, played kissy face with arch war criminal Bibi Netanyahu, reneged on closing Gitmo, I do however live in the reality based world and am not a racist, read books and am possessed of a deep sense of skepticism so I am not susceptible to the routine dog and pony shows that the fascist Republicans have trafficked in ever since Nixon’s Southern Strategy.
Horses-assus Interruptus: Donald Trump’s Hawaii Pakololo patrol was scooped on the million dollar paper chase for Barry O’s birth certificate. The Donald, whose presidential hopes sustained a devastating hit amidships when his keystone issue was blown out of the water best call back his ace investigators who had descended upon the Hawaiian Islands like a swarm of maggots over a piece of rotting meat, why continue to pour money into an obviously failed venture. Not that politics is anything like the man with the hairdo that looks like a skin graft from the ass of a baboon can equate to his gig as a real estate mogul but one would think that a man with a history of bankruptcies an failed ventures would appreciate the concept of cutting his losses. Despite the dead-enders who wouldn’t be satisfied of the proof of Obama’s birth were they to have a fucking video of the event the release of the certificate pretty much relegates this to the fringes once the initial corrupt media followup is swallowed whole by the coming royal wedding saturation coverage.
It is going to be interesting in seeing the evolution of the birth certificate issue, so much time, money and effort has been spent in this obvious smear campaign (a good amount of it coming from our special friends over in Israel I suspect) to slyly capitalize on traditional American ‘nigger hating’ racism. From the get to the entire operation has been constructed to foment suspicion against Obama and to paint him as some sort of an alien, an Islamic terrorist supporting plant, a cunning Kenyan anti-colonialist, a Manchurian style deep cover Commie bent on destroying the American capitalist system (Lloyd Blankfein and the boys over at Goldman Sachs must have really pissed themselves laughing over that one) and the entire narrative pandered to those who are the dumbest among us, the peckerwood trailer trash who just can’t accept a black man as being elected to the presidency. An early diversion for the birther bullshit is being embarked upon by journalist Wayne Madsen, a man whose work I have extreme reservations about who has been slumming around on the Alex Jones show and talking about how he is having to leave the country under a vague and secretive death threat by the Obama government. Madsen is pushing that there is a CIA connection to Obama and his parents now that the birth certificate issue has been debunked once and for all to anyone with a smidgen of sanity. Not that Madsen isn’t totally full of horseshit but I could buy the CIA angle, especially with the CIA being nothing more than Wall Street’s Gestapo and Obama by his actions has done nothing but serve the interests of Wall Street. This is something that the Big O has been quite adept at and let’s face it, the CIA has had a hand in the destiny of the U.S. Presidency ever since they colluded with other criminals and ruthlessly anti-American capitalist elements to blow half of John F. Kennedy’s head off in Dealey Plaza back in 63. For a synopsis of CIA malevolence check out this post from my old buddy Len Hart over at The Existentialist Cowboy on How the CIA created a Ruling Corporate Overclass In America.
It would be too easy and flippant to say that the last few days worth of biblical devastation of the American south, notably the asshole of civilization Alabama is God’s punishment on peckerwood nation for their sins against mankind as a result of their stupidity, bigotry and raw hatred … but why the fuck not? Hey you chicken fried motherfuckers, just how many of you are going to turn down that big gubmint disaster relief money from dat dere Kenyan Nigga in the WHITE House tomorrow?
Just my two cents
Just my two cents over the morning cup o’ joe
A nation that destroys its systems of education, degrades its public information, guts its public libraries and turns its airwaves into vehicles for cheap, mindless amusement becomes deaf, dumb and blind. It prizes test scores above critical thinking and literacy. It celebrates rote vocational training and the singular, amoral skill of making money. It churns out stunted human products, lacking the capacity and vocabulary to challenge the assumptions and structures of the corporate state. It funnels them into a caste system of drones and systems managers. It transforms a democratic state into a feudal system of corporate masters and serfs.Teachers, their unions under attack, are becoming as replaceable as minimum-wage employees at Burger King. We spurn real teachers—those with the capacity to inspire children to think, those who help the young discover their gifts and potential—and replace them with instructors who teach to narrow, standardized tests. These instructors obey. They teach children to obey. And that is the point. The No Child Left Behind program, modeled on the “Texas Miracle,” is a fraud. It worked no better than our deregulated financial system. But when you shut out debate these dead ideas are self-perpetuating.
Passing bubble tests celebrates and rewards a peculiar form of analytical intelligence. This kind of intelligence is prized by money managers and corporations. They don’t want employees to ask uncomfortable questions or examine existing structures and assumptions. They want them to serve the system. These tests produce men and women who are just literate and numerate enough to perform basic functions and service jobs. The tests elevate those with the financial means to prepare for them. They reward those who obey the rules, memorize the formulas and pay deference to authority. Rebels, artists, independent thinkers, eccentrics and iconoclasts—those who march to the beat of their own drum—are weeded out.
—-The demonizing of teachers is another public relations feint, a way for corporations to deflect attention from the theft of some $17 billion in wages, savings and earnings among American workers and a landscape where one in six workers is without employment. The speculators on Wall Street looted the U.S. Treasury. They stymied any kind of regulation. They have avoided criminal charges. They are stripping basic social services. And now they are demanding to run our schools and universities.“Not only have the reformers removed poverty as a factor, they’ve removed students’ aptitude and motivation as factors,” said this teacher, who is in a teachers union. “They seem to believe that students are something like plants where you just add water and place them in the sun of your teaching and everything blooms. This is a fantasy that insults both student and teacher. The reformers have come up with a variety of insidious schemes pushed as steps to professionalize the profession of teaching. As they are all businessmen who know nothing of the field, it goes without saying that you do not do this by giving teachers autonomy and respect. They use merit pay in which teachers whose students do well on bubble tests will receive more money and teachers whose students do not do so well on bubble tests will receive less money. Of course, the only way this could conceivably be fair is to have an identical group of students in each class—an impossibility. The real purposes of merit pay are to divide teachers against themselves as they scramble for the brighter and more motivated students and to further institutionalize the idiot notion of standardized tests. There is a certain diabolical intelligence at work in both of these.”
They don’t want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking… They don’t want well informed, well educated people capable of critical thinking. They’re not interested in that . . . that doesn’t help them. That’s against their interests. That’s right. … … They don’t want people who are smart enough to sit around a kitchen table and think about how badly they’re getting fucked by a system that threw them overboard thirty fucking years ago. … … They don’t want that! You know what they want? They want obedient workers . . . Obedient workers, people who are just smart enough to run the machines and do the paperwork. … And just dumb enough to passively accept all these increasingly shitty jobs with the lower pay, the longer hours, the reduced benefits, the end of overtime and vanishing pension that disappears the minute you go to collect it,
The dumbing down of America was essential for the hostile corporate takeover, the banishment of critical thinking skills and a knowledge of history, true history that is, had to be stifled. Creativity and questioning of idiotic people and policies are not things that are desired in the corporate state and no dissent is brooked let alone tolerated. Today’s average office settings are top down authoritarian entities where a group identity that is far more akin to classical Stalinist communism rather than the grand capitalism that they trumpet is the norm. Asking questions is denounced as heresy or gasp…”negative thinking” and the poor souls packed into cubicles slightly smaller than the cells at Gitmo are policed with ruthless efficiency by networks of finks, stooges and goons straight out of Solzhenitzen’s Gulag Archipelago. Any violation of the corporate thought police is the cause for scorn from one’s co-inhabitants of cubicle hell, ostracism and in situations with psychotic mid-level straw bosses lead to collective punishment and eventually exile. These people are the lucky ones in corporate Amerika because at least they have jobs in air-conditioned settings, the less fortunate who have been culled out at an earlier production stage in the educational process end up as harangued Wal-Mart clerks, prison guards, manual toilers and food service workers. It’s the ownership society and the snorting porkers who run it own all of our asses, high-rolling, four-flushing pigs like Donald Trump. The prototypical ugly American is now rocketing to the top of the polls largely due to his brazen I’m an asshole and proud of it! attitude, his pandering to the dumbest motherfuckers on the planet who are the racist birthers and scumbaggers and having a hit show on the tee-vee to boot! Only in America, a land where one now evolves into a grunting cave person over time, bred to worship their rich masters always at the expense of themselves and the closer their understanding to the primitive concept of “God’s will” the better. While the Germans aspired to the perfect Aryan Übermensch 21st Century Americans are blessedly ignorant, filled with primal hatred and fear and devolving by the minute thanks to the electronic dreck vomited forth from their televisions. It is truly eugenics American style.
One step closer to the end of the world. The one-two combo of corporate greed and organized religion apparently proved to be too much for reason, sanity and compassion.
Atlas Yawned, Jesus Wept: The high priestess of the religion of “fuck you I got mine” who is novelist and cult leader Ayn Rand has always been a driving force for the destroyers of economies and the anal raping of the working class. Rand, who emigrated to America from her native Russia suffered from a delusional worldview resulting from her families experience during the rise of communism during the revolution days. Rather than learning a valuable lesson from the oppressive thugs who rose to power and then murdered with impunity and stole whatever the hell they wanted to all under the guise of a corrupt ideology instead became some sort of intellectual prophet of a ridiculous school of thought called objectivism which can be boiled down into bumper sticker simplicity as FUCK THE POOR. Rand worked her way up by writing screenplays and eventually novels which took on an increasingly political theme that demonized the state and basic human cooperation and decency which endeared her to the sort of high-rolling assholes that wrecked the country and while waging class war under the battle flag of free market capitalism they are nothing more than the parasites, looters and moochers that Rand condemned. Rand hit it big with her novel The Fountainhead in which the selfish prick hero Howard Roark waged battle and triumphed over an evil socialist system, although the book was rejected by twelve publishers it as all dreck does eventually finds a sucker, usually a self-interested one. The book was published and Rand was well on her way to becoming a cultural icon with a cause celebre. While Rand is often praised as a libertarian idol by selfish dolts it was prominent libertarian thinker Murray N. Rothbard who wrote on The Sociology of the Ayn Rand Cult, the glassy-eyed members would go on to use the work of Rand to justify the strip-mining of American society through removing the regulatory restraints on financial sociopaths whose crony capitalism is far closer to textbook style fascism than the cynical individuality that Rand often invoked.
An article from Mother Jones magazine pegs the goddess of greed dead on, the piece is entitled And the Rand Played On states that:
Rand’s particular genius has always been her ability to turn upside down traditional hierarchies and recast the wealthy, the talented, and the powerful as the oppressed. This topsy-turvy philosophy has echoed through the blame-the-victim ranting of CNBC host Rick Santelli and the tax-day tea parties. In this world, it is not possible to admit that the rich and the Republicans may have been undone by their own greed and cluelessness.
Greenspan’s rise is instead a tale of a gerbilish mirror-gazer who flattered and bullshitted his way up the Matterhorn of American power and then, once he got to the top, feverishly jacked himself off to the attentions of Wall Street for twenty consecutive years – in the process laying the intellectual foundation for a generation of orgiastic greed and overconsumption and turning the Federal Reserve into a permanent bailout mechanism for the super-rich.
Greenspan met Rand in the early fifties after leaving Columbia, attending meetings at Rand’s apartment with a circle of like-minded intellectual jerk-offs who called themselves by the ridiculous name of “The Collective” and who provided Greenspan with the desired forum for social ascent.
Rand’s magnum opus of bullshit was the massive tome Atlas Shrugged, a 1,200 + page hunk of rancid tripe and sanctimonious garbage so incredibly boring that I was never able to finish the damned thing and I am well accustomed to plowing through tedious volumes of writing. Hell…I couldn’t stand it after the first couple of hundred pages, it is not only as large as a phone book but as entertaining as well. Rand wrote it while holed up in her New York digs jacked up on amphetamines which could explain the length of her screed. The plot is based on the wealthy being portrayed as social victims and seeking out a cultish figure named John Galt as though he is the messiah who can deliver them absolution for their self-centered, sociopathic natures and justification for their throwing a tantrum and withdrawing their ‘gifts’ from a society that doesn’t deserve them primarily because they are not turned into demigods like Donald Trump. Galt has bolted from a society that he like all snobs see no common interest in being good citizens of despite such concepts as basic human decency and morality. Rand uses a climactic speech from Galt that runs from 60-75 pages long depending on the edition as the centerpiece for Shrugged which is very nicely summed up by Taibbi as:
Rand’s book Atlas Shrugged, for instance, remains a towering monument to humanity’s capacity for unrestrained self-pity – it’s a bizarre and incredibly long-winded piece of aristocratic paranoia in which a group of Randian supermen decide to break off from the rest of society and form a pure free-market utopia, and naturally the parasitic lower classes immediately drown in their own laziness and ineptitude
The book fairly gushes with the resentment these poor “Atlases” (they are shouldering the burdens of the whole world!) feel toward those who try to use “moral guilt” to make them share their wealth. In the climatic scene the Randian hero John Galt sounds off in defense of self-interest and attacks the notion of self-sacrifice as a worthy human ideal in a speech that lasts seventy-five pages.
It goes without saying that only a person possessing a mathematically inexpressible level of humorless self-importance would subject anyone to a seventy-five page speach about anything. Hell, even Jesus Christ barely cracked two pages with the Sermon on the Mount. Rand/Galt manages it, however, and this speech lays the foundation of objectivism, a term that was probably chosen because “greedism” isn’t catchy enough.”
Amen! The oligarchy has Rand down and is currently in the process of propagandizing the costumed idiots that are the teabaggers into adopting Randian philosophy in promoting the filthy Republican 2012 budget and the destruction of Medicare and Social Security in order to give more tax cuts to the “Atlases”. There has been a recent campaign by the front group for tax chiselers, Dick Armey’s Orwellian named Freedom Works to promote a low-budget film adaptation of Atlas Shrugged using a guerilla marketing campaign designed to circumvent the librul [sic] media and mobilize their mouth-breathing brownshirts to bully theater chains into showing the flick. How effective the introduction of the real Rand into a disorganized, anti-intellectual, semi-literate gaggle of angry rabble whose fourth grade level reading skills are challenged by the ghost written books of Glenn Beck is unknown. The movie has gotten for the most part poor reviews outside of the normal neocon propaganda organs thus reason for the end run around the traditional marketing methods that would normally promote such epics. It is all just more of the same crap though, there will likely be many meetup groups in which selective portions of Rand’s book will be spoonfed to the lemmings much like the constitution was after the GOP co-opted the movement. It’s going to be just like bible study groups where the peaceful and humane messages of Jesus Christ are twisted like inflatable balloon animals into justification for prejudice, servitude, war-mongering and idolatry of the money changers and since so many of the scumbaggers overlap between the churches of false prophets it should be at least marginally successful. Sales of Atlas Shrugged will surely skyrocket although I suspect the majority of those buying will be bored to death after a few dozen pages and simply park it in a place where it can be easily observed by fellow miscreants and travelers.
Regarding Ayn Rand, I will give the devil her due for one thing – she was a devout atheist who allegedly once admonished the iconic neoconservative propagandist William F. Buckley by telling him that “you are too intelligent to belive in God.” That the teabaggers and right-wing freaks in general have latched onto Rand’s rapacious looter theology while they pound their bibles and caterwaul about the evils of liberalism, altruism and scientific advancement is just another example of both their hypocrisy and their imbecility. But the fascists are relentless, well-funded and with Ayn Rand and God on their side are determined to once and for all overthrow the system and the secret Muslim in the White House who doesn’t have a birth certificate. There are no shortage of con-artists, grifters, liars, cheats and flim-flammers who don’t understand the great political benefit of having millions of easily hoodwinked and malleable useful idiots at their disposal which is why a guy like Donald Trump has such appeal. In the end of course we all lose but there is no shortage of nincompoops and jackasses who are happy to wage war against phantom menaces and have no problem whatsoever in putting their children to bed at night cold and hungry as long as they can stick it to the enemy du jour that is rolled out by the plutocrats who depend on their remaining ignorant as an insurance policy.
Really, in the end what it all boils down to is people who base their entire lives and form their belief systems based on one book should not only be ignored but should be shunned like lepers. Whether that one holy book happens to be The Bible, Atlas Shrugged or even Gray’s Sports Almanac for that matter it makes no difference, given man’s capacity for learning and the availability of information if one just gets the fuck off of the couch and turns off the television people who live in an impenetrable bubble of willful ignorance that limits their worldview to the delusions of primitives, madmen, snake oil salesmen (or women) and money grubbers is a misfit. Why is it that in our creeping empire of idiocy that such simpletons and bags of shit bursting at the seams with false morality and certitude are accepted as rational people? It is only in the doomed and dying former land of plenty that rationality could be perversely turned upside down and idiocy worshipped.
As Leonard Cohen once proclaimed, I have seen the future and it’s murder….
Just my two cents
– H.L. Mencken
It is exactly as I predicted. The gaggle of angry Americans suffering from collective insanity, willful ignorance and a raw and seething fury over the audacity of a black man being elected President are being thrown under the bus by their cynical Republican saviors. It was always ludicrous to the nth degree that the assclowns, haters, perverts, greedballs and rubber fetus crowd of the Republican base could hope that a re-branding along with the hijacking of a libertarian based pro-American values movement would end up as anything but a mockery. The other day when a few hundred (a generous count from eyewitnesses accounts) pasty white fat old people, a pack of costumed loons dressed up like Captain America or in the ridiculous colonial American garb gathered in the rain to listen to the rancid Rand Paul and moonbat Michelle Bachmann wail in ginned up outrage outside of Congress that the movement had truly jumped the shark. While the majority of the cretins don’t get it yet they are as radioactive as Fukashima and as they have slowly evolved into a gross parody of themselves the only aspiring politicians still attracted to the lamentable overly hyped Astroturf uprising are egomaniacs and charlatans like newly minted champion of the Birthers that is the aggravating and slimy parasite named Donald Trump. I can hardly wait until next year when the greatest freak show on the planet will descend upon the Tampa Bay area when the Republican National Convention comes to town. It’s gonna be the biggest magnet for the deranged this area has seen since the great angry hordes descended on Pinellas Park to gang rape the brain dead living corpse that was Terri Schiavo.
The teabaggers never would have been taken seriously to begin with were not the establishment plutocrats enamored with the idea of fielding their very own Sturmabteilung to bully, intimidate, harangue and mislead as they acted to put the post-Bush disgraced GOP back into power. The Dick Armey of Darkness was an Operation Gladio style stay-behind network to sabotage any meaningful effort at systemic reform that would potentially rollback fascist right-wing gains of the past three decades. With a corrupt media spinning ever increasingly insane demand by the scumbaggers into a wag the dog style of populist uprising the useful idiots served their purpose in returning Republicans to power in 2010. The big assists must be given to not only corporate propaganda organs like Murdoch’s Wall Street Journal, in which NO serious challenge to the power structure would ever be referred to in such reverence as the tea party but to the raw cynicism and gross fecklessness of the Obama administration which alienated the traditional Democratic party base and kept them home in droves on election day. Now that the Koch Brothers have their hand picked governors in place in numerous states where whatever remains of the regulatory structure and social safety net will be destroyed with extreme prejudice the buffoonish teabaggers are going to understand exactly what happens when such a collection of vicious goons lose their usefulness to the party leadership – just think Night of the Long Knives.
I happen to actually know several of the suckers who suddenly, after years of George W. Bush racking up the national credit card with not a peep became shrieking, talking point spewing deficit hawks, howling about how Barack Obama’s wee wee isn’t circumcised which proved he was a secret Muslim/Commie out to send forth his militant black army ACORN to enslave the good ole white working folks. They began to harp on the Kenyan anti-colonialist worldview of Obama, raved about death panels, unions and did their damned level best to pour as much money into Glenn Beck’s bank account by buying his ghostwritten tripe that subsidizes his millionaire faux populism. When I asked one about how could he possibly compare and contrast the reputed Kenyan anti-colonialism of Obama with the anti-colonial worldview of the Founding Fathers that they so like to selectively quote he got that thousand yard stare and quickly changed the subject to George Soros. One has to have somewhat of a sick sense of humor to remain sane in this rotting empire these days, were those who actually subscribed to the horseshit peddled by the Koch Brothers network of think tanks, extreme radical Christian domination of the churches and are convinced that we are engaged in a steel cage death match crusade to halt the coming of Sharia law and the Islamic caliphate not legion they would be easier to dismiss. Now that they are being peeled off of the Republican elephant’s ass like blood-sucking leeches they are only going to become more desperate. How long will it be until some freak Christian group or militia sets off a mass casualty attack here in the USA? Of course it isn’t terrorism if the white people do it, like the white supremacist yahoo who left a backpack bomb along a Martin Luther King day parade route in Spokane . The enablers of the angry white army who benefit from using them as droogs sure has zero interest in examining the threat of domestic white terrorism. But Herr Liebermann and the Irish Republican Army supporting turd Peter King preside from on high against the hated scapegoated Muslims.
Never have I seen such a credulous collection of saps in my lifetime. The teabaggers will believe anything which they hear from the payroll propagandists, haters, fifth-columnists and demonic false prophet preachers with their slime campaigns out to paint Obama as an anti-American at best and the Antichrist himself at worst. Now this may seem sick but I have this twisted little fantasy, I wish that Obama did have a huge nefarious conspiracy to rid America once and for all of Raptureheads, Teabaggers, Deathers, red state fascists and assorted outher dumbasses. I would love it if he had the balls to just give the order to round up and relocate these vicious swine to some sort of reeducation camps, if they could be saved great, do the necessary lobotomies and send them back into society to pick beans and clean toilets, the jobs that after all ‘Americans just won’t do’ according to the talking points. And if not just march them into an industrial sized Soylent Green style meatgrinder and puree their asses up into a fine pulp (omitting the children from their dead-ender loser parents of course whose removal from their lives would free them from a lifetime of willful ignorance and bible study) mix it with plenty of bean sprouts, soy sauce and water chestnuts and sell it to the Chinese as egg roll stuffing or something. Baby Trig and his football shaped head could be auctioned off on EBay to some degenarate high rolling Asian cocksuckers like the ones in Faces of Death who revel in eating fresh monkey brains directly out of the poor creature’s skull. Sadly, given the pathological nature of American corporations to trade shit and shinola back and forth it would all likely end up as 2.99 per pound sausage on a stick at your local big blue smiley Wal-Mart superstore. Christ only knows what sort of raw agricultural waste and human sewage ends up being made into coleslaw at their delis. Just don’t gas them in the camps, it may spoil the flavor of their diseased flesh that could otherwise be passed off to the Meskin’ hating Becker bottom feeders as chorizo sausage in their frozen breakfast burritos.
Of course the sheer hypocrisy has contributed much to the downfall of the teabaggers, while howling and dancing around like a bunch of buffoons waving their Gadsen flags about the evils of the deficit, the needed purity rituals to take their country back and the growth of big government they are truly full of shit. Were the teabaggers concerned about big government and the deficit they would surely call for the immediate end of the imperialism of the Military Industrial Corporate Complex which these diseased, death worshipping bumpkins just adore, hell, carpet bombing sand niggers is nearly as good as NASCAR. The big government that they denounce with bogus passion that is only outwardly projected self-loathing (deservedly) is just fine with them as long as it consists of a gargantuan police state apparatus that they can one use to round up gays, libruls [sic], Muslims and illegal immigrants. A police state that has a high tech capability to allow the bible thumping prudes and ignoramuses to spy on the private behavior of others, and the more that it is about sex the better because with the crowd there is nothing that has more clarity than the two ideas of the vengeful bloodthirsty omnipotent God and that poking Mr. Wiggly into the dirty place isn’t anything that Jesus would approve of. Which just doesn’t seem so outrageous to them when it is pederast priests and pedophile preachers doing the poking. The lack of outrage towards Wall Street also defines the scumbagger schmucks, were they anything less than the malleable dolts and dupes that they always have been they would be marching with pitchforks and torches towards the swanky headquarters of Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, Citi and Bank of America and storming the barricades of the corrupt high-rolling swine responsible for the economic collapse. It is a strange dichotomy that the dumb bastards regularly rail against teachers and their weakened unions but have zero qualms about the oligarchy grinding their bones to make their bread but you just can’t put lipstick on a pig or polish a turd, the Tea Party is what it is, the dregs of American society and the product of the war against the public education system. I really makes one wonder whether the early 20th Century elite just may have been onto something when they championed eugenics (yes, Hitler actually got a good deal of his ideas from the USA) and sterilization to keep the mentally inferior from reproducing. In retrospect, just how many of these fucking flag-waving borderline retards would have been born had that idea gotten more traction in it’s time?
I will be watching with much interest to see if the Republican dog is wagged by the Tea Party tail will have the gonads to actually shut down the government this week. The orange man John Boehner is feeling the heat as the angry army is getting more restive by the day that there hasn’t been legislation to make Obama cough up his birth certificate and is backed into a corner now. Any capitulation would potentially doom this career hack and allow an ambitious little pit viper like Eric Cantor to harness the uncontrollable monster of the cultural populist uprising that has been fed by the Kochs and their ilk. The latest jagoff to overstate his importance is some nitwit from Wisconsin named Paul Ryan who yesterday rolled out a budget proposal to cut over 4 trillion from big gubmint spending over the next decade. Of course military spending is ok as are tax cuts for the rich but anything that helps the poor is of course under the ax. Ryan, like so many of these other right-wing pigfuckers looks amazingly like a Nazi, just check out some old WWII footage and you will notice that there is an amazing resemblance between nearly all of these dipshits and their historical predecessors, just slap a Colonel Klink hat on Ryan and he’d fit right in. The GOP budget, with the typical Orwellian sounding name The Path to Prosperity is being touted by the moneychanger’s gospel that is Murdoch’s Wall Street Journal, then again so was the Tea Party and all of the other frauds.
Me, I say shut it down too. Let these pasty fat haters practice what they preach and not receive their medicare and social security checks, see how popular that the Beckers find that one. Boehner, Ryan and their ilk may find out very quickly that the Tea Party platform can be easily converted into a gallows.
Just my two cents over the morning cup o’ joe
Barack promised change — and sure enough, things changed for the worse
It was with immense sadness that I discovered that Joe Bageant had succumbed to cancer and departed this mortal coil the weekend prior to last. I was a huge fan of Joe’s, his writings, especially in recent years as the obvious decline and fall of America into fascist third world status accelerated were poetic, mournful, darkly funny and dead on. He will be missed, as Hunter S. Thompson once wrote, “the tribe is smaller by one, the circle is one link shorter and the enemy jacks up the odds by just a little bit more”.
