Category Archives: 2016 Olympics
The International Olympic Committee in a stunning display on the increasing prominence of the BRICs (Brazil, Russia, India, China) delivered a massive smackdown of the now obvious (to all but Murkans) illusionary American economic might of the Ponzi Wall Street machine when Chicago was eliminated from hosting the Olympics. This despite the Pope of Hope’s pilgrimage to Copenhagen, one of those damned Eurpoeen (sic) Socialist countries to pander for the awarding of the 2016 games to the Windy City where the inconvenience would totally fuck thousands of people trying to get to work for weeks like in Atlanta in 94….not that it matters, by then at the rate we are going thanks to the three headed monster of Geithner-Summers-Bernanke nobody will have fucking jobs anyway as the monthly unemployment figures (cooked as they are) only go up and Americans are on the road to serfdom and poverty.
Rio is as natural a choice as Bejing was, these are the emerging economic powers of the new century as American Capitalism and trickle down economics will in the next decade or so be as mocked and scorned as those who believed in the Earth being flat. It’s the denial of a greed crazed system, strangling on it’s own shit and the wide scale impoverishment that it tries to hide behind the 24/7 onslaught of bread and circuses that is piped into the living rooms of the stupidest fuckers on the planet and taken as gospel. The rest of the world is moving on while the U.S. ‘leadership’ continues to only be moved to save the fraudulent scum of the oligarchy and to ensure that the vampires on Wall Street will be allowed to continue to feed on us cattle. While more civilized countries see the writing on the wall and are passing regulations against market transactions that are as on the level as internet gaming the land of sloth, obesity and stupidity and our new idiot king are only manning the airpumps (and printing presses) to inflate the next bubble that will predictably burst with disastrous consequences.
And of course it’s business as usual with the Dittoheads, the Beckers and the rest of the rotten, mean-spirited, water carrying pigfuckers of the RepubliKKKan Nazi party with three cheers being given to the lastest black eye for America and that dirty commie Muslim nigger who had the audacity to usurp centuries of white supremacist power in Der Heimat. Paul Krugman writes about these assholes in today’s damned librul New York Times column:
“Cheers erupted” at the headquarters of the conservative Weekly Standard, according to a blog post by a member of the magazine’s staff, with the headline “Obama loses! Obama loses!” Rush Limbaugh declared himself “gleeful.” “World Rejects Obama,” gloated the Drudge Report. And so on.
So what did we learn from this moment? For one thing, we learned that the modern conservative movement, which dominates the modern Republican Party, has the emotional maturity of a bratty 13-year-old.
But more important, the episode illustrated an essential truth about the state of American politics: at this point, the guiding principle of one of our nation’s two great political parties is spite pure and simple. If Republicans think something might be good for the president, they’re against it — whether or not it’s good for America.
To be sure, while celebrating America’s rebuff by the Olympic Committee was puerile, it didn’t do any real harm. But the same principle of spite has determined Republican positions on more serious matters, with potentially serious consequences — in particular, in the debate over health care reform.
But Krugman sugarcoats it too much, the RepubliKKKans are anti-American to their very core, degenerate, cynical, fascist filth who have hijacked and destroyed this country for decades, the cherry on the top of their cake of shit was the Shock Doctrine writ large during the ruinous years of the Bush-Cheney-Rove Axis of Evil. Now, behind the lunatic fringe CNP onslaught and hero to millions of deadenders Glenn Beck they are whipping up the cretins and knuckledragging just plain mean rubbish of Peckerwood Nation about all sort of evil machinations of the enemy of the humanity Obama. Things like death camps, kill granny fear campaigns, imminent communism, alien DNA in H1N1 vaccinations, the AntiChrist crap yada yada yada…it’s all bullshit and these freaks buy into it hook, line and sinker while Beck’s bank account grows exponentially.
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, fascists and 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 soy sauce and water chestnuts and sell it to the Chinese as egg roll stuffing or something. Then 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 Lou Dobbs/Becker bottom feeders as chorizo sausage in their frozen breakfast burritos.
Anyway fuck the Olympics. I hate the goddamned Olympics, I always found them boring as watching paint dry or old people fuck but could actually tolerate them until the USA rolled out the Dream Team of NBA pros with huge contracts (endorsements that is) to kick the living fuck out of the poor bastards who would have to face down the likes of Michael Jordan and Magic Johnson in their prime. Crap, that is what the Olympics are to me, at least the winter games have hockey which is a redemptive quality.Who the fuck needs the Olympics anyway? Anymore it’s nothing more than a corporate showcase for their sweatshop manufactured shit, they might as well replace the rings in the logo with multi-colored Nike swooshes. And of course any sort of event of that scale in the USA would only be another justification for even more police state crackdowns, an LRAD in every city and more Darth Vader suited militarized ‘law enforcement’ personnel to beat down antiglobalization protesters.
So while not as particularly gleeful as the right wing scum and the Dittohead dopes I actually find it encouraging that the Pope of Hope was smacked down in Copenhagen, his magic spell that he is some sort of transformational figure doesn’t play quite as well outside of TV Nation. And let the ongoing job losses be a shot across Obama’s bow, his CHANGE is just more of the same bullshit lies that politicians are infamous for in American history. The politically savvy among us suspected that we had been had when Raht Emanueal, the most corrupt motherfucker in the Democratic party was his first announcement as the Chief of Staff aka Gatekeeper of Graft.
The Democrats are the new enemy now…..look at the Max Bacchaus bill to mandate the poor to pay insurance parasite at the threat of imprisonment, mix it in with the ongoing Wall Street love fest, Hell the CEO worship cult is back again, Newsweek is licking Jamie Dimon’s balls in their latest hagiography and of course the wars that never end. Obama is just LBJ without the social programs and in tying up this rant I must share this line from writer James Ellroy on Lyndon Baines Johnson that could describe the Pope of Hope as well….History will judge him as a tall man with big ears who needed wretched people to love him.
