Let Them Eat War: Mr. Obama Joins the Club

The moment the first explosions rocked Libya I knew that Barack Obama had just locked down another four years in the White House. This was his initiation, his right of passage, just like laying in a mock coffin and sucking off upperclassmen in the Skull and Bones tomb. By definition every U.S. President is a war criminal and our very own proud owner of the Nobel Peace Prize finally has that most precious of things, a war that he can claim as his own. Not that Afghanistan and Iraq which continue to burn, bankrupt and morally pollute didn’t qualify Obama for the exalted title of war criminal in chief but they are really Bush’s wars, now the Pope of Hope has pissed his name into the snow. Of course there is all of the happy horseshit about the international seal of approval including that of the United Nations but ultimately is is more war for a nation that remains to become weary of such bloody and ultimately futile adventures. The national credit card was long ago maxed out on wars of choice, the monstrous sword of Damocles that is the national debt hangs over the heads of every American currently alive and whomever happens to be born here over the next fifty years but there is always more support for America’s favorite pastime – killing brown people.  
Eight years to the day after the abortion that was George W. Bush dialed up the attack on Iraq Mr.Obama took time off from his NCAA tournament bracket and green-lighted the attack on the devil Col. Gadhafi who like the earlier version of the “New Hitler”, Saddam Hussein is killing his own people. Now there is change that you can believe in! Never mind the blatant hypocrisy of not launching a similar attack in support of those seeking ‘democracy’ in Bahrain courtesy of our great friends in the House of Saud (the irony that 15 of the alleged 19 September 11th ‘hijackers came from Saudi Arabia is lost on the American sheeple) seeking to preserve their tyrannical and corrupt regime. Now that the warfare state has become the preeminent power in America, only nosing out the genocidal Wall Street speculators whose taste for rotting flesh that they can pick for their daily sustenance and who right now are in an orgy of mania on the level of hardened pederasts as they rut with each other in the commodities pits placing futures bets on crude. The D.J.I.A. (Dick Jammed In Ass) was up 178 points today despite the lack of positive real economic news that benefits the ordinary fucked-over schmuck who is now left to contemplate the coming of five-dollar a gallon gasoline and has yet to get a handle on the accompanying hyper-spike in food prices that will follow like a category five blast of an economic hurricane after the initial tidal surge. In a bit of news that I find both somewhat encouraging for a bizarre reason and terrifying the first signs of violence and rage connected to double digit food inflation manifested itself at a San Antonio, Texas area Taco Bell where a customer named Ricardo Jones went batshit over a price hike on his bag of Beefy Crunch Burritos and engaged in a potentially deadly standoff with local police after he fired an assault rifle at police. Such incidents are to be expected in a culture where gun violence is revered but somehow it seems to be crossing a line when an extra 3.50 tacked onto a bag of burritos could lead to a Heat style shootout with the blue boys.
Think that Obama is going to save you from the rapacious looter capitalist flesh-eaters? Think again, not only is the Pope of Hope now a real live War President but he got the message from the 2010 elections that anything other than boot-licking obedience to the banksters, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce outsourcing pimps and the rest of the corporate pigs will not be tolerated. Look for Obama to assume the traditional position for commander in chief when it comes to the finance oligarchs, assume the position of footstool and don’t ever think of fucking with them again and they will be very kind to his reelection campaign. Barry O. is assured of another term for his willingness to have all of America take a haircut so that the Wall Street casinos can have plenty of comp chips to gamble with. Not even Wall Street and the Chamber are insane enough to tolerate even in moments of amusement the possibility of a Sarah Palin presidency leaving the rapidly fading star of the scumbaggers to embark on some sort of world tour to pitch the virtues of entrenched American stupidity, gross ignorance and xenophobia, today’s stop will be in Israel where she will do Wasilla style crack-ho style lapdances for Bibi Netanyahu who likely only is going to spare the time wasted in bothering with her out of some sense of honor among thieves and a gift to his most reliable fifth-columnist William Kristol. Hell, Bibi entertained Fred Fucking Thompson in the run-up to the 2007-2008 GOP primaries so maybe hosting Palin is for sheer entertainment value, it has to be more exciting than trying to converse with a cadaver like that marble-mouthed lug of a bad actor.
CRUISE MISSILE LIBERALS LOVE WAR TOO!
The most disgusting thing of all regarding Obama and his wars, both in terms of military ordnance dropped on civilians and the ongoing war on civil liberties at home is just how down with it all that the liberals are with it all. Liberals, especially liberal Democrats LOVE war, as long as it can be wrapped up in some sort of a self-righteous humanitarian guise.The Libyan adventure gives them one that they can line up and salute for. It has been a long and sad regression on the ‘left’ since Rahm Emanuel and the conniving Democrats were able to successfully ostracize the anti-war movement back in the run-up to the Pelosi-Reid majority in 2006. Not only was impeachment of the Bushreich war criminals off the table but the law was laid down that any such criticism of the wars was taboo. Afghanistan was embraced by the Democrats as ‘the good war’ while the Iraq debacle was chained to Bush’s neck like an albatross. Cindy Sheehan was excommunicated after she served her purpose to the corrupt and cynical DLC/Corporatist Democrats, MoveOn.org was bitch-slapped after they dared to question the motivations of the great General Petraeus and the assemblage of sycophants and travelers the likes of Ariana Huffington, Cyber Stalin Markos Moulitsas Zuniga and their ilk all fell into line and for the sake of political (and lucrative career enhancing) expedience all learned how to just stop worrying and love the bomb. Obama was elected in a landslide, reneged on his implied promises to close Guantanamo Bay, restore accountability and the rule of law and draw the wars down and the useful idiots on the ‘left’ all got onboard. Whether it was the silence over matters that would have in years past had them screaming for Bush’s head on a pike or a rethinking of antiwar stances to now make supporting the obviously neocon ginned up Iran Green Revolution or biting on the bait of Time Magazine’s cover of the Afghan woman with her nose cut off (see above picture) the once pacifist ‘left’ became apologists for Obama’s murderous actions. Even Code Pink renounced their principles and whored out to the war machine once their guy had the keys.
And today as the bombs and cruise missiles continue to rain down on Libya there is more of the same sort of fatheaded liberal apologists, whether it be the insipid Bill Press who is on Sirius/XM morning drive time radio with the daily DNC talking points or the windbag Juan Cole on Antiwar.com Radio the support for this latest filthy, anti-constitutional attack on a country that didn’t do one goddamned thing to threaten America was as vomitous as it was definitive as to the true character of the state worshipping hypocrites that they are. Chris Hedges pegged the liberals dead on for the cheese-eaters that they have become, first in his savage and dead bang diatribe Liberals are Useless and later on in his book The Death of the Liberal Class. Hedges, who has come to be the moral voice of these most immoral and diseased of times hits it spot on again in his recent piece Power Concedes Nothing Without a Demand that speaks to the abject failure of American liberal institutions as they have been subverted with nary a whimper by a decades running coordinated and now unstoppable fascist/militarist element juggernaut:

The liberal class is discovering what happens when you tolerate the intolerant. Let hate speech pollute the airways. Let corporations buy up your courts and state and federal legislative bodies. Let the Christian religion be manipulated by charlatans to demonize Muslims, gays and intellectuals, discredit science and become a source of personal enrichment. Let unions wither under corporate assault. Let social services and public education be stripped of funding. Let Wall Street loot the national treasury with impunity. Let sleazy con artists use lies and deception to carry out unethical sting operations on tottering liberal institutions, and you roll out the welcome mat for fascism.

The liberal class has busied itself with the toothless pursuits of inclusiveness, multiculturalism, identity politics and tolerance—a word Martin Luther King never used—and forgotten about justice. It naively sought to placate ideological and corporate forces bent on the destruction of the democratic state. The liberal class, like the misguided democrats in the former Yugoslavia or the hapless aristocrats in the Weimar Republic, invited the wolf into the henhouse. The liberal class forgot that, as Karl Popper wrote in “The Open Society and Its Enemies,” “If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant, if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them.”
Why is it that there is never any money to find socially beneficial programs, education, the rebuilding of a crumbling infrastructure, renewable energy programs or anything that is useful to actual human beings in America but there is always money for war? This speaks to a deep cancer in our society, our precious green and camouflage clad ‘heroes’ have been glorified through movies, television shows, print media, toys and video games that worship war. Ike knew what the hell he was taking about when he warned of the rise of the Military Industrial Complex and the accompanying costs to a society that at the time was filled with wonderful capability, economic and scientific advantage and a gold plated reputation coming out of World War II that was only beginning to be tarnished by the rise of the CIA, the brutal public murder of President Kennedy and the subsequent Vietnam War. Something went terribly awry in America around the time of the JFK killing and the same institutional elements behind that coup d’etat are still calling the shots. All else is subservient to the agenda of the American war machine,
As if any more confirmation that Obama was just a lightweight version of  Lyndon Baines Johnson without the social programs was needed the attack on Libya makes any more argument on that one moot. Mr. Obama was nowhere to be seen in Madison during the mass protests that none of the corporate media deemed worthy of coverage, choosing instead to focus on created news like a few dozen or so geriatrics, losers and deluded and easily duped freaks flying Gadsen flags and wearing those faggy Revolutionary War style wigs and tri-color hats descending on town hall meetings to vent their frustration at the mythical death panels that in real life reside inside insurance claims departments. He will however be seen pimping his manhood over the ongoing attacks on Libyan civilians. Hey, Bill Clinton bombed the shit out of Belgrade and contributed to the starvation and misery of hundreds of thousands of Iraqi children with his bombings and sanctions, cruelty that his own Secretary of State Madeline Albright went on 60 Minutes to obscenely justify as acceptable.
I have to agree with Chris Hedges, Liberals ARE Useless….take my word for it, I ran with the pack for long enough before I was shunned as a leper for daring to say the obvious that if it was wrong under Bush, then it is also wrong under Obama. But being excommunicated from the world of the dueling cults of the jackass and the elephant is just fine with me. 
Meet the New Nazis, Same as the Old Nazis
The corporate media on Sunday sought to play on both the gullibility, the emotions and the misplaced sense of patriotism of the public when launching this bullshit biscuit into the lemming feeding trough. Gadhafi said the strikes were a confrontation between the Libyan people and “the new Nazis,” and promised “a long-drawn war.”
“You have proven to the world that you are not civilized, that you are terrorists — animals attacking a safe nation that did nothing against you,” Gadhafi said in a televised speech.
The Colonel might just be onto something there. The Homeland (formerly the USA) is currently engaged in an endless series of wars of conquest, employs a blitzkrieg style of attack strategy (shock and awe) in the initial attacks of target countries, is currently engaging in a campaign of ruthless persecution of a religious minority (the anti-Muslim hysteria), runs a gulag of secret prisons and torture facilities, has a government that not only spies on ordinary citizens but encourages them to spy on each other and rat out disloyal or bad citizen type behavior, employs a kangaroo court justice system in which ordinary citizens can be brought up on vague charges (terrorism) or just disappeared (the stripping of Habeas Corpus) and disappeared. All of this is facilitated by a pack of vicious thugs who worship state power (teabaggers and Christian Zionists) and was set into motion by a modern day Reichstag Fire (9/11). Then there is that magnificently efficient system of state propaganda in the corporate media that Herr Goebbels would have been proud of. In Der Heimat versus Hitler’s Nazi regime though at least the trains ran on time and the German infrastructure was the advanced envy of the world, so much that Eisenhower modeled the intrastate highway system after it. Today, in 2011 the roads are pocked with automobile chewing potholes and other defective surfaces, the bridges are crumbling and even when the government tries to do something to shore it up and look to the future as in the national high-speed rail initiatives American Nazi apparatchik in waiting like Florida Governor Rick Scott turns town the money in order to nurture the hatred of his own personal S.A. the teabaggers. Make no mistake, with the coming wave of hyperinflation and dollar devaluation there is going to be plenty of opportunity for the real goons to assert themselves after Obama’s piss-warm and utterly feckless regime which has failed to change anything falls and then the pogroms will begin.
When taking into consideration the OSS/CIA (Wall Street’s enforcement arm) post-WW II assimilation of thousands of Nazis, including serious war criminals into the service of American finance capitalism under the guise of waging the Cold War it’s apparent that the Third Reich didn’t really lose the war, it just changed venues.

Just my two cents

“A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world”

Albert Camus 

The long anticipated (at least by some) ferocious coordinated pushback against the ‘netroots’ by both DLC and GOP establishment forces began in earnest over the last couple of weeks. The blogosphere was specifically targeted by party line pundits from the drug addled champion of ‘values’ Rush Limbaugh to the DLC’s own shill Ed Schultz who loosed their condemnation. In a rare display of bipartisanship it was imperitive to impugn the credibility of one of the few remaining bastions of free speech that dares to sing in an off tone in relation to the rest of the madhouse choir. The mainstream media is our enduring national shame for it is a media overly obsessed with child killers like Andrea Yates, the mysterious Suri Cruise and in circling the wagons for talking point defenses of the right of Israel to lay waste to its neighbors using American-made bombs than engaging in serious investigative journalism or any sort of honest introspection over what has caused things to have gone so horribly wrong with this country in the first place. The citizens are in a funk , policy is set by sociopaths, crooks and amoral thugs, war is now spreading throughout the world and we as a nation have strayed so far off the course of acceptable moral behavior that the point of no return may be soon appearing on the horizon.

After a much needed although too very brief vacation, The Station is once again transmitting and we couldn’t have returned at a better time; especially now that the blogosphere itself is under siege and its very legitimacy is being called into question by charlatans and pimps. I personally have been attacked by right and left-wingers alike who are unified in both their ignorance as well as their savagery, their mutual hatred of any independent voice or thought is possibly the only thing that they have in common though they would be loathe to ever admit it. Of all the vitriolic denunciations, spam and hateful diatribes that stuffed my inbox the one that I particularly got a kick out of was from some pathetic right-wing loser’s website that was incredibly enough called I ♥ Ann Coulter. With a title like that there is no need for further explanation. I would be willing to bet that the guy’s ‘Godless’ cover shot of the harlot of hate has been adorned with a ‘pearl necklace’ on more than one occasion….hope that he spent the extra dough for the special commemorative laminated edition.

Additionally, my frequent usage of the term fascism to describe the rulers of our de facto one party government was called into question as to its legitimacy in describing modern domestic politics so please allow me the opportunity to present the very definition of ‘fascism’ taken directly from an authority on the English language – The Miriam Webster Dictionary:

Main Entry: fas·cism
Pronunciation: ‘fa-“shi-z&m also ‘fa-“si-
Function: noun
Etymology: Italian fascismo, from fascio bundle, fasces, group, from Latin fascis bundle & fasces fasces
Often capitalized : a political philosophy, movement, or regime (as that of the Fascisti) that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition.


I say that if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck then chances are that it truly is a fucking duck. What was omitted from this definition though was the union between the government and big business which gets it’s own definition in the dictionary under Corporatism:

Main Entry: cor·po·rat·ism
Pronunciation: ‘kor-p(&-)r&-“ti-z&m
Function: noun
: the organization of a society into industrial and professional corporations serving as organs of political representation and exercising control over persons and activities within their jurisdiction



Now depending on which reference that you use both of these are often combined under the blanket term Fascism which when you take into consideration each and every aspect of the system as it is in the era of George W. Bush’s America we are already there. The administration and it’s legal army is moving even as you read this to subvert the recent ruling of the high court in Hamdan v.Rumsfeld that for at least a fleeting moment slapped down the right of the U.S. executive branch to act as king and to imprision without trial and torture at will. The Bushists are also now moving to rewrite the rules to allow for the legitimizing of illegal wiretapping and surveillance of American citizens which will be approved usual by the rubberstamp Congress and if the language isn’t exactly to the liking of the Cheney master plan then Bush will just use another one of those signing statements that his goons are so fond of.

Once again, if it walks like a duck……..

The MSM and even most liberal bloggers are loathe to utter the dreaded ‘F word’ as a descriptive term but those who choose not to see that the lasting trend has been a slow and then post-9/11 more rapidly accelerating tract towards fascism then they are either plain dumb or in denial and more than likely a bit of both. I will however add that while it is fascism it is a softer version of it – at least for now but this could rapidly change if the neocons and their bellicose Zionist allies are able to successfully escalate the chaos in the Middle East into full blown regional and optimally civilizational war. If Dick Cheney and the neocons get their wish an early Christmas present will be a domestic terrorist attack that will allow the implementation of every Draconian, authoritarian aspect of the latest version of the USA PATRIOT Act. Then there will be a grand opening of the KBR Detention Camp franchise and time for the black vans to commence their pickup routes but that time the least of our worries will be attacks on the free speech zone of the blogosphere or quibbling over our definitions of fascism.

Besides, that’s not the point of this posting. Because we are back and we are badder than ever.

Our policy here is that we will NEVER endorse political candidates! This is not only our policy out of principle but also because of laws that could be invoked were any sort of preferential treatment might be misconstrued as free advertising. Our view is that we are far more concerned with the issues, the corruption of the entire fucking system and the sickening fact that relatively speaking most of the candidates are pretty much interchangeable when it really comes down to it. In order to survive to emerge from the filtering process to even be allowed to run for public office with a party sanction you have already been compromised. The DLC is known for conducting screenings so that only the most pro-corporate agenda potential candidates are able to emerge. We prefer to call a spade a spade and don’t engage in the practice of turd polishing or practicing porcine cosmetology. If we happen to attack some politicians or public figures more vehemently and viciously than others it is not because we find them to be shining examples of virtue, they just happen to be bigger whores with more vile clients than the others.

Besides, as far as endorsements are concerned there are plenty of blogs out there with no such qualms that engage in becoming involved in the actual political business. Many of them are the so-called ‘A List Blogs’ that like to believe that they carry a large degree of clout. Personally, I would prefer to keep a lower profile and not have to compromise my own sense of values or risk becoming contaminated by the taint of getting too close to the actual workers in the great Washington D.C. sausage factory. It is far better to fly low, not worry about self censorship or compromise and leave the politicking to those who truly have a taste for it. There are plenty of writers/activists who are far more enamored with attention, influence, some small degree of mainstream media acceptance and the possibility of occasionally being invited to lavish parties thrown by the ambitious where they can act like the pretentious bores that they are while trolling for pussy, munching on crudites and sucking down free booze that the world sure as hell doesn’t need another one.
Our sole purpose in life is to attack the system rigging bastards where they live and to expose the hypocrites and charlatans that have sold out American values, values that are based upon having a strong middle class and progressive social programs such as those championed by men like Franklin D. Roosevelt – now THERE was a Democrat! Without the desolation and desperation created by the job destroyers on Wall Street and their lackeys in the White House, Congress and the Pentagon there would be no bloodthirsty, Social Darwinist, fascist (there’s that fucking F-word again) menace laying waste to our country both within and outside of our borders. Now that the duplicitous pig-fuckers in the DLC have entered into an alliance with the Rovians and that other country that wags the dog while engaging in dispicable acts of violence against civilians as they wage war against their overflowing enemies list it’s time to throw down.
Howard Kurtz of the Washington Post’s latest column entitled ‘Liberals and Israel’ virtually screams that left leaning bloggers are not only cowardly by not engaging in debate about the overkill in Lebanon (Markos M. of Da Kos is specifically singled out for staying out of it) but also telegraphs the strategy of the soon to be unleashed barrage of accusations of anti-Semitism that will be used by both the Rovians and the Clintonites to smear progressives and The New Republic, that piece of shit neocon-lite rag is also making noises in launching personal attacks on netroots bloggers.
Of course here at the Station we are all too happy to call a spade a spade, know the difference between a Jewish person and the Israeli government, hate the very concept of ‘political correctness’ and are officially on record as saying that the politicians on both sides of the aisle of the whorehouse in Washington are not only in bed with Israeli lobby doing the nasty thing for the lifeblood of campaign support (financial and otherwise) but also ensuring that they get protection from the hordes of activists. The 400+ members of Congress who officially went on record to pledge their loyalty to a foreign government over their own are not only the most vile of traitors but their actions are enabling war crimes that further isolate this country from the rest of the world. Where is the outrage over the shipments of bombs that are being sent to Israel on the sly via the backdoor to drop on the poor women and children and others who happen to be in the wrong place at the wrong time? Where is the MSM coverage of this attrocity? Where is the DLC outrage? Who gives a rat’s ass about collateral damage!
We Do! And We Are Goddamned Proud Of It Too!

 

I will address this in my next posting but first a word on the DLC.
The Democratic Leadership Council is a bunch of feckless, despotism enabling, Israeli Lobby worshipping, corporate lackeys who are perfectly content to go down in flames over social wedge issues as long as the status quo can be maintained and the debate over fairness to the American worker doesn’t surface. We here at The Station are strictly Joe Six Pack type of guys and are fucking pissed that we are now having to drink cheap swill due to the fact that it costs more to gas up the car to drive to our shitty fucking jobs every day, to keep being gouged by the power pirates who have taken over the public utilities, to keep paying more to the racketeers of the insurance industry whose economic terrorism comes with the full blessing of their bought politicians and especially pissed at ignorant peckerwood morons and the lemming members of the Christo Fascist zombie brigade who continue to dissemble while ‘New Rome’ burns. We are among the millions who struggle to keep food on the table to feed our families and raise our children who are being turned into the future debt slaves that will be necessary to feed the financial industry. The children have bleak futures due to the looting and corruption of the special interests, they lack the skills to compete for increasingly scarce ‘good jobs’ due to the shitty education that is provided by a public school system beseiged by influential theocrats and privatizers.
Now the DLC and their acolytes puff up their chests and for the first fucking time in over five fucking years of hell goes into attack mode against the blogosphere. Where was this coordination and fire in your bellies while you let Bush and his rubberstamp fascist GOP Congress run fucking roughshod? Where were Hillary’s temple eunuchs while we were all getting whipped like cringing dogs by the bullies who run the circus who are the Chivas sipping, Lexus driving, Wall Street Journal reading, lobster bisque sucking elitists who call the shots in the ‘Class War’ that is the elephant in the living room in America in our fear drenched, Jesus juicing, new Gilded Age of the post 9/11 world where:
EVERYTHING IS DIFFERENT NOW!

 

The DLC is far worse than the existing tyrannical one-party rulership of the GOP and their smirking idiot king at 1600 Pennsylvania. They are worse because they represent the falsehood that there is such a thing as a true opposition party in this country. As a Marxist acquaintance once told me (not that I am a Marxist by any means, I believe in American capitalism although it needs to be strongly regulated to keep the greedballs from looting, raping and pillaging) that the parties as they exist today are nothing other than warring factions of the same corrupt capitalist system and he is absolutely correct. When you judge them by their deeds rather than their words and it becomes very apparent that this is so. When after all was the last time that the Democratic party actually stood for protecting labor which was the true left prior to the period when the think tanks were a dominant force and were able to successfully parlay the alleged statements of an unnamed Democrat in a Robert Novak column that anti-war Nixon opponent George McGovern stood for “Acid, Amnesty and Abortion”.
 

The DLC was born out of the Reagan years when the elitists latched onto the concept that it was easier to go along to get along and joined the anti-labor gang along with other so-called ‘Reagan Democrats’, other than a brief interlude of Republican Lite with the Ross Perot assisted serendipity of the Clinton administration it has been one long ongoing purgatory of being tarred as pro-abortion, pro-homosexual, anti-family and un-patriotic ever since then for the jackass party. By aligning themselves with the corporations and the wealthy on economic and trade issues they sold their souls to the company store along with millions of Americans who have been crushed by the war on labor and the plague of outsourcing.

They being the establishment DLC are a pox upon America and represent an impediment to the vital systemic reforms and ideological changes that are necessary for this nation to once again be a place where each and every citizen has an opportunity to realize their dreams. It is also imperative that our disastrous foreign policy misadventures be changed immediately so as to remove the animosity towards America that breeds terrorism and turns the lesser fortunate members of the world into nothing more than cheap slave labor with which to keep profits up for the treasonous looters of Wall Street and the ultra-rich elites who have stolen democracy from the people like the Grinch himself descended upon ‘Whoville’ to load up his sled with pilfered goods and abscond under the cover of darkness only these cheapjack fucks won’t be returning when they suddenly grow a heart.

In real life there are no fairy tale endings.
This isn’t a game for the squeamish.
As Clint Eastwood (A great American director whose recent movies are excellent and enduring pieces although he first had to pay his dues by playing Dirty Harry and similar cardboard cut out tough guy archetype roles for years) said in the classic ‘The Outlaw Josey Wales’:

“Now remember, things look bad and it looks like you’re not gonna make it, then you gotta get mean. I mean plumb, mad-dog mean. ‘Cause if you lose your head and you give up then you neither live nor win. That’s just the way it is.”

Josey Wales was a serious motherfucker and he won AND lived!

The Clintons are serious motherfuckers as are their partners The Bushes!

AIPAC and the Israeli Lobby are serious motherfuckers!

Dick Cheney, David Addington, Rummy and the neocons are serious motherfuckers!

The corporatists are serious motherfuckers!

The religious right are serious motherfuckers!

Karl Rove is a serious motherfucker!

And I am a serious motherfucker too!

The Question Is: ARE YOU?
