Republicans Soil Themselves and Their Pants

Jack Abramoff, the Lobbyist to the stars of the RNC has pleaded guilty to ripping off Native Americans in order to funnel cash into the coffers of the Republicans. Abramoff cut a deal with prosecutors in order to reduce his sentence (coward) and it is expected that the scumbag will roll over on the Republicans whose poles he polished. He kept electronic records of his emails and text messages to these dirty politicians and personnaly their staff... and soon so will we.

I am hard on this administration and it's lack of morality, ethics, mercy, inteligence, and souls. I am therefore surprised to be applauding the Justice Department for it's continuingly superior performance, bravo. You guys are good.

Some have claimed (Fox News) this be a bipartisan scandal and I could honestly care less, if that were true, which we all doubt it is. None the less, any politician found to be dirty needs to be thrown off the face of the First world, the second too for that matter, into the murky underbelly of the Third World.

There they will spend the remainder of their lives contracting Polio and fearing the great Mosquito bringer of pain and death, as we will send them to this forsaken land without medicines. They will at point I assume the irony of their situation. they could have helped this land to irradicate these trivial but deadly diseases but did not, they were too busy stuffing their pockets and mouths.

Fare well, and watch out for Lions.

Bush is a Spy

It was reported this week by the NY Times that George W. Bush has ordered the NSA to spy on Americans... Duh. That is what the Patriot Act was for. What caught many Americans by surprise was that he ordered the NSA to spy, on them.

People like the idea of stopping terrorists but at what cost? How much are they willing to give up? The government lost the ability to spy on Americans in the 70s because of another scandal, Watergate. I have been telling everyone I speak to over the phone that conversations are recorded by the NSA since the Patriot Act was signed, maybe now they will believe it.

To quote Braveheart:
"They can take our lives but they will never take our freedom."

Soylent Green is People.

Every one of us who screams at the rain in the country, trying to make the average man listen, so that we might affect a change in this government, is asleep. We are blind to the fact that we have lost a war that we never knew was fought. America is not, and has never been a country, it is a lie.

We the same chances of altering a leopard's spots as we have changing this country. Bob Woodward an insider for the Bushanistas? But he brought down Nixon, didn't he?

No... HE did not. The country was not operating at full efficiency and some fat needed to be trimmed. Kennedy ring a bell? I don't know why he was killed, and neither do you because the records are sealed. Why is that?

Sealed in a Democracy?

Yes, in the United States of America.

But if we don't know all of the facts how can we cast an informed vote?

Exactly.

America's Founding Fathers, the slave owning right-wing of European utra-Christians so foul to be around that they were booted off of that continent, formed this government. And guess what they were all about? What their bag was, what they liked to do, and of course expected everyone else to follow?

It doesn't matter, they didn't invent this country. Corporations did, at least this incarnation of America.

This America is the third largest country in the world by population, and the largest consumers of well, everything in the world. We produce nothing but war which keeps the populous scared and buying, a formula even Pavlov would be proud of. We have semi-strong nationalistic feelings which keep us focused on the enemy, and we are always at war. Every news broadcast contains something to be afraid of, some new horror so foul that we must lock our doors to keep it out, and in doing so, lock ourselves in.

We live in a consumo-fascist state and there is no freedom granted that is not beneficial to the state. The fascists won this nation by assimilating thier ideals into the corporations and buying off the politicians in order to have them relax or refuse to enforce anti-monopoly laws. We the people never saw it coming because they bribed us too with cheap goods from Japan, then Taiwan, now China. They also promised victory over the hordes from the black or brown countries who practice a black or brown religion and hate white people. White people loved that one.

How do you beat corporate fascism with words and ideas they will not allow on thier airways or in thier print? They do after all own all media.

You don't, and that's why they've won the war. A coup if you will, in which the government didn't actually change. But it did happen didn't it? That is greatest trick they managed to pull. No one noticed. Maybe they were too busy shopping.

Special Prosecutor seeks new Grand Jury

Patrick J. Fitzgerald my man of the year was not too pleased with the revelation that former "All the President's Men" co-author Bob Woodward knew of Joseph Wilson's wife before anyone else in the media. The announcement was meant to help Scooter Libby escape prison on perjury, obstruction of justice, and 30 years worth of other crimes. It instead seems to have pissed off the one guy who can hold the White House accountable for it's crimes. A Grand Jury is a 2 year commitment by Fitzgerald to hound these guys until he finds out where all of the bodies are burried. I for one cannot wait to hear the White House spin this additional two years of anal probes as a victory for democracy.

Arnold Won't Be Back

Yesterday Californians voted down ALL of Governor Schwarzenegger's proposed amendments in the special election... ALL of them. It cost the state of California which is already in debt 40 million dollars to hold these elections. Special interests on both sides spent over 200 million dollars fighting each other, making this one of the most expensive elections in California history.

Four ballot initiatives were on the plate in case no one read them here are sections from each initiative that I find most disagreeable:

PROPOSITION 73 - WAITING PERIOD AND PARENTAL NOTIFICATION BEFORE TERMINATION OF MINOR'S PREGNANCY. INITIATIVE CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT.

Defines abortion as causing "death of the unborn child, a child conceived but not yet born."

PROPOSITION 74

PUBLIC SCHOOL TEACHERS. WAITING PERIOD FOR PERMANENT STATUS. DISMISSAL. INITIATIVE STATUTE.

Modifies the process by which school boards can dismiss a permanent teaching employee who receives two consecutive unsatisfactory performance evaluations.

PROPOSITION 75

PUBLIC EMPLOYEE UNION DUES. RESTRICTIONS ON POLITICAL CONTRIBUTIONS. EMPLOYEE CONSENT REQUIREMENT. INITIATIVE STATUTE.

Prohibits the use by public employee labor organizations of public employee dues or fees for political contributions except with the prior consent of individual public employees each year on a specified written form.

PROPOSITION 76

STATE SPENDING AND SCHOOL FUNDING LIMITS. INITIATIVE CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT.

Permits Governor, under specified circumstances, to reduce appropriations of Governor’s choosing, including employee compensation/state contracts.

Wow, the nerve of this guy.

The result, California said no to Arnold and the Republican Party, no to taking away a woman's right to choose, no to big pharmaceutical companies, and no to big energy.

The Governator said he wanted the tools to do the job, that he wanted to change our broken system. California voters gave him their answer, and I am sure he already possesses the needed tools for his next assignment, a suitcase and map so that he can leave the Governor's Mansion and return home in his giant SUV.

Sometimes Democracy has a way of biting you in the ass, doesn't it Arnold?

It's Beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Scooter Libby - Indicted
Carl Rove - Still Under investigation, still likely to be executed.
35% approval rating for Adolf - I mean GWB.
George W. Bush flies south for the winter during Duck Season (Argentina almost burned to the ground in protest.)
Democrats shut down the Senate - Because they can.
Being a Liberal when the crap hits the fan.... Priceless.

I was right Republicans are always wrong.

Let me be the first if not the only one to say that I am soooooo smart. I wrote in an earlier post that Judith Miller then serving what would turn out to be an 85 day incarceration for refusing to answer questions posed by a Special Prosecutor regarding her knowledge of the outing of a covert CIA agent did so not to protect her sources, but rather herself.

As it turns out, I was almost certainly correct. Her own paper the New York Times, is now posing the same question of their Pulitzer Prize winning reporter.

NY Times / Judith Miller

You will notice that I used the phrase "almost certainly" in my self-praising. It is a defect common to those who value empirical evidence, or put more plainly, don't buy in to the notion of a virgin birth. People like myself rarely have 100% certainty or state even the most commonly accepted "facts" as such.

It is however a fact that I was right to question her motives and now the mainstream media including her own paper are catching up.
