2015 Political Preview

What is Happening

I’m so tired of seeing all the ‘best of 2014’ crap being regurgitated through the blogosphere I decided to move things in the other direction.

Fascist Pigs

9/11 brought state sponsored terrorism to New York where it took hold.

Police Work Slowdown

You can currently see the effects of the disease in the actions of today NYPD, whose work slowdown is nothing if not a terrorist threat aimed directly at those whose taxes fund these extorters.

State sponsored terrorism isn’t only for foreign enemies to use against us.  We’ve become pretty adept at inflicting it upon ourselves!  Rudy cheers!

Capitalist Pigs

Dozens of Moms will be “accidentally” shot by their kids, though only a small percentage at WalMart by their babies, so please continue to shop with confidence.  MABB  (Mothers Against Ballistic Babies)….anyone?

Undercover Footage of Over the Counter carnage

Walmart has a very visible onsite armory complete with stores of ammunition usually located very near the hardware department! This could be handy in case of open insurrections (or Zombie Uprisings)

).Assault Rifles at Walmart

“Break Glass in Case of Emergency” is an unspoken motto among Walmart’s Sunday morning sniper rifle shoppers.

Rant of the Day

Urban Decay

I feel compelled into offering a long form analysis of the current state of affairs in the US. Bear with me as you will usually see my comments fit well within 140 characters. Nature of the beast….LOL. To wit:

The situation is more dire than most people realize. The public is forced to focus on distractions served up by the corporate controlled media (no offense to the memory of Trayvon, but in the overall scale of issues that need to be addressed, the coverage given is nothing less than a carnival show).

It’s endemic. There’s statistically much less crime (Steven Pinker has the stats) these days but significantly more coverage of crime in the media. Not that these diversionary media clown shows are restricted to crime “journalism”. No indeed. Pick a subject that can easily be broken down using scientific evidence. The media will find a way to give “equal time” to some plastic haired lunatic flat-earth leaning nut job with the appropriate fake smile and rhetorical flair.

In the meantime, the transfer of wealth from the many to the few continues to accelerate even after the US banks “collapsed” as a result of their overzealous self regulation and return to the banking practices circa 1890, (a point at which we are still mired, no offense to Elizabeth Warren. Heaven knows she’s trying). Banks are giving something like 2% “return” on your money while simultaneously charging 30% interest on credit. Sounds fair.

Healthcare costs were already off the charts when I bailed out of the US several years ago. It isn’t gonna matter how much you pay for insurance or who is paying it so long as we allow immoral profiteering off our sick, elderly and dying. And let’s be blunt here. It’s outright highway robbery on a scale unseen in human history. The suffering and misery imposed by the US healthcare system is shameful to me as an American and as a human, but that’s just because even though I’m a devout and militant atheist, I stand firm in my Christian values. It’s what my momma raised me in.

Something’s gotta give sooner than later in the US. If it doesn’t then America will be like any other South American country where the rich are forced to live behind walls. That’ll work for plenty of the idiots I left America to get away from but not for me. The stink of the ghetto and the desperation of the deprived always manage to breach the walls which is not the way I wanna live my life. If I thought there would or could be a peaceful, political way to diffuse the powder keg that will ultimately explode, I would not be so pessimistic. We’re still spending money we don’t have on military expeditions we should never have started while simultaneously making it harder for poor people to either abort or feed their babies. I quote the immortal words from a popular song:

Who is to blame in what country? Never can get to the One.
Dealing in multiplication but they still can’t feed everyone.

Enjoy.

Wall Street Versus the Euro

Wanna know why Wall Street is so keen on killing the Euro?

You can’t sell below cost in the Eurozone countries just to run your competition our of business, even if you have a billion dollars to give it a go.  Helps to level the playing field.  Gives the small guys half a chance to compete with the bigger players.

From this.

Enjoy.

Republican Pawn Stars

Here is a tip for all of you that will help you understand the Republican plans for gutting our social security and healthcare system through the use of their “voucher” programs.  The best example I can think of for explaining their motives draws on the increasing proliferation of “pawnshop reality programming”, which is apparently a huge hit with the low information sector of the American body politic.

Like many desperate out-of-luck gamblers (laid off workers), the Republican Pawn Stars are tempting the hungry populace with what amounts to a gift certificate for a Chick-Fil-A sandwich in exchange for the worthless old antiques (life,liberty..) meticulously collected and preserved by their ancestors.

The only thing missing from the Republican Pawn Star vocabulary is the excited exhalation of an eager pawn broker, who encourages many a desperate client into a bad deal with the appeal of “CASH MONEY-HUNDRED DOLLAR BILLS!“.

Walk away. You can get a better deal on E-bay.  Remember, the devil never offers you a fair deal when attempting to buy your soul, and the Republicans are as close to the devil incarnate as you are ever likely to see.

Enjoy.

The Headless Beast

Romney is sticking to the lie that he had nothing to do with Bain Capital management after 1999.  Simple question for the press.  Who was managing Bain Capital after 1999?  It is called journalism.  I don’t get paid to do it which probably explains why I am so much better at it than the pros.

Enjoy.
