Get Well Soon Jimmy!

Jimmy Carter: One of the finest men of the 20th Century and one of the most honest men to ever hold the office of President of the United States.

I'm proud that I voted for him twice.

We would have been so much better off had Reagan NOT been elected president. It started a downward spiral of hate and greed that has nearly sunk the United States of America.


Jimmy is outta the hospital and has gone to Washington for a "private meeting.
At 86 yrs old and one day out of the hospital for a "viral infection" he's running around like a diplomat. Go President Carter!
WooHoo. . . clap, clap, clap, whistle, cheer.

Christian Republican extremism - Michigan style

I really am a constitutionalist. I've read and studied the Constitution of the United States like every good citizen ought to. Afterall, we are a constitutional republic in this country and I believe we are one of, if not the most successful experiments in government ever undertaken. The Constitution of the United States will live far beyond the life of our country as a model of how a huge mass of different types of people can live together freely and in some sense of order.
So whenever anyone and no matter whoever it is exercises their constitutional rights to free speech and any other freedom outlined in our great constitution, I'm ready to defend their right to do so. I really believe in the ACLU and their efforts to protect EVERYONE'S civil liberties.
But ya know, when some stupid dumb fuck dick wad like this insane crazed homophobic dip shit exercises his constitutional rights to put forth his agenda of hate, narrow minded, bigoted, extremist right wing spew, I just want to go knock the living shit outta the moron and cram his manifesto down his angry puke filled throat while having him bent over the hood of his Ford Escort and ass fucked by twelve big fat ugly leather clad gay bar rejects until his ass is nothing but a mangled, shredded bloody mess.

State attorney launches bizarre Internet war on openly gay college student
By Liz Goodwin

Here's a curious test case for any public servant pondering a sideline as an online political activist. An assistant state attorney general for Michigan has created a blog devoted to discrediting the University of Michigan's student body president, who is openly gay.
Assistant Attorney General Andrew Shirvell has called student Chris Armstrong a "pervert" and "Satan's representative" on his blog, and admits to protesting outside the 21-year-old's home. He scours Armstrong's Facebook page and Armstrong's friends' Facebook pages and posts defaced photos of Armstrong on his site. . .
He continued: "I've protested outside of his house, yes. ... I'm a Christian citizen exercising my First Amendment rights."

See, not all bazaar Christian Republicans nut cases are in WV.

Crazy right wing extremism and paranoia

I got this from a "Guns Alert" e-mail. . .

ALERT: Your right to own a firearm is hanging on by a thread! In it’s most ambitious effort yet, the UN and the Obama regime are working together to pass the Arms Trade Treaty to control and/or ban ALL PRIVATELY OWNED FIREARMS! The anti-gun nuts are holding secret meetings to craft a slew of uber-restrictive gun laws known as the Arms Trade Treaty. This Progressive backed treaty could become international law as soon as 2012. The globalist gun agenda wants to disarm the world one gun at a time! Take action NOW to protect YOUR GUNS!

Not only do these morons believe that the UN has some measure of control in the United States of America, but they believe that we are on the verge of being disarmed by the UN. . . our right are "hanging by a thread!"
How fucking stupid can stupid get?
I've been a citizen of this country all my life. My ancestry here goes back to the 17th Century. In my lifetime and my father's lifetime, my rights as a gun owner, hunter, defender of my property, etc., have NEVER ONCE been infringed. I have the same cache of guns my father had and more. I have a gun my g'father owned.
What the fuck is the matter with these NRA gun nut whacked out freaks?

This little gem from the mouth of the republican senate candidate from Delaware.

Evolution is a myth," O'Donnell said, starting to explain her position before Maher interrupted.
"Evolution is a myth?" he asked. "Have you ever looked at a monkey?"
"Well then why aren't they, why aren't monkeys still evolving into humans?" O'Donnell responded.

Yes folks, we have simple minded morons running a legitimate candidates for seats in the United States Senate.
PEople like this used to be relegated to third party cadidacy or write in campaigns. Geez, they make Lyndon LaRouch look mainstream.

WTF behavior of Newt teabagger Gingrich

Gingrich: President Exhibits ‘Kenyan, Anticolonial Behavior’
Newt Gingrich said this weekend that President Obama exhibited “Kenyan, anticolonial behavior,” an observation that drew angry if puzzled responses from Democrats and questions about Mr. Gingrich’s meaning and motivation.

Mr. Gingrich, who is mulling a bid for the Republican presidential nomination in 2012, made the comments to National Review Online. He was quoted by the conservative Web site as saying: “What if [Obama] is so outside our comprehension, that only if you understand Kenyan, anticolonial behavior, can you begin to piece together [his actions]? That is the most accurate, predictive model for his behavior.”

Earth to Newt Gingrich: When did "anti-colonial" become a bad thing in America?

Do we consider the founding fathers to have been wrong? Was their rally against colonial domination a negative thing?!

WTF is this guy talking about?

We consider the greatest anti-colonialist of the 20th Century, Mahatma Gandhi, to have been one of the greatest men of the 20th Century.

Was Martin Luther King not an anti-colonialist?

See, this is the problem with these right wing extremists. They really don't know what the fuck they are talking about. They don't understand American history, the Constitution of the United States, the roots and policy of American freedom and other basic American institutions, values and ways of life.

These people would be better served if they all went off and lived on some island somewhere where they could just make up lame brained rules on a daily basis and change them every week as whatever they're thinking at the time dictates.
They are totally THAT fucked up.

And YOU. Yes, YOU who are considering voting for any of these stupid fucking moronic dip shits! You are just as stupid as they are. You obviously don't understand basic American values, constitutional rights and freedoms. You are not patriotic. You are a dumb fuck anit-American buffoon.

The continuing saga of Hollyweird addiction

AP Source: Lohan fails court-ordered drug test
By ANTHONY McCARTNEY, AP Entertainment Writer – 2 hrs 56 mins ago
LOS ANGELES – Lindsay Lohan has failed a court-ordered drug and alcohol screening test and could face a probation violation that might throw her back in jail.

Do we really care? Obviously we do.
I feel sorry for this poor pitiful creature who just can't stay clean and sober. I know how hard that is for someone suffering from addiction. I hope she has her moment of clarity and gets it before she dies.
That said; aren't we all just a little bit sick of the Hollywood sickies? I mean, come on, Linsey Lohan, Jouquin Pheonix, Britney Spears, Paris Hilton and sad sorry piles of other celebrity messes saturate the news media on a daily basis. ENOUGH! We know that you dumb fucks are no better than the rest of us dumb fucks. That means a whole bunch of you are going to be mental basket cases. I don't want to see the mental basket cases who inhabit my world paraded before me in living color and I sure as hell don't want to see these Hollywood celebrity dip shits in a parade of psychotics.
The difference between the mental basket cases in my world and those in the Hollyweird world is that the ones in my world have a lot less resources at their disposal to get themselves propped up and on the mend. Sure, in the end they'll all be relying on the same 12 step programs to maintain their sanity, but up front, there's a lot less hope for those with limited resources.
How bout we shed some light on what the real evils of substance abuse are for the average person and the causes of addiction instead of the gross voyeuristic nonsense that we have to endure day in and day out from the press.
Naaaaw, that wouldn't sell..

What is happening here?

Should we be concerned?

Tea party favorite O'Donnell wins in Delaware
AP – 5 mins ago

WASHINGTON – Virtually unknown a month ago, Christine O'Donnell of Delaware rode a surge of support from tea party activists to victory in the Republican Senate primary Tuesday night, dealing yet another setback to the GOP establishment in a campaign season full of them. A second upstart led for the GOP nomination in New Hampshire.

This is getting a little disconcerting. We've got a bunch of radical right wing extremists who seem set to assume positions of power in our country. I can't help but be reminded of Germany in the very early 30s.

Record poverty levels - who will get blamed?

Record gains for US poverty with elections looming

By HOPE YEN and LIZ SIDOTI, Associated Press Writers Hope Yen And Liz Sidoti, Associated Press Writers

WASHINGTON – The number of people in the U.S. who are in poverty is on track for a record increase on President Barack Obama's watch, with the ranks of working-age poor approaching 1960s levels that led to the national war on poverty.

Census figures for 2009 — the recession-ravaged first year of the Democrat's presidency — are to be released in the coming week, and demographers expect grim findings.

It's unfortunate timing for Obama and his party just seven weeks before important elections when control of Congress is at stake. The anticipated poverty rate increase — from 13.2 percent to about 15 percent — would be another blow to Democrats struggling to persuade voters to keep them in power.

The question is, will the real story be told? Will the democrats insist that the real story be told?
Will the story go back to Reagan's policy of corporate pandering? Will the nation discuss the process where millions and millions of jobs were wholesaled off shore to where the cheap labor was? Will the discussion proceed to discussion the consequences of unchecked corporate monopolization, hostile takeovers, etc. that removed millions of jobs from middle class workers? Twentyfive years ago people were worried that the middle class was being destroyed by the mega corporations that were beginning to dominate the scene. We said that all this movement off shore and the dissolution of smaller companies into conglomerates was a bad thing for the American worker.
Welcome to the 21st Century. It has all come to pass as a result of republican policies that have dominated the political scene for the past 30 years.

Now, who is going to be blamed for these numbers? And isn't odd that these numbers have crept up on us to all of a sudden be released like a bolt of lightning that no one knew about before?
Yes folks, the republicans will turn this all into a story of how, since the democrats and that president of theirs took over two years ago, the country has gone to hell in a handbasket. That is the story you'll get from Fox News and that is the story that the dumb fuck ignorant proles will believe.
Is it really worth fighting for anymore in this country? Are there better places to be?

Islamic "controversy" and 9-11 pandering

9/11 events go on in shadow of Islam controversies
AP – 11 mins ago

NEW YORK – A day of mourning for nearly 3,000 Sept. 11 victims began with moments of silence and tears near ground zero, as observers braced for protests over a mosque planned blocks away on what is usually an anniversary free of politics.

What a big load of stinking shit.

There is only a controversy because the media has made it so. The Islamic center is located two NYC blocks away from "ground zero." I am getting tired of the media whipping the ignorant proles into a frenzy.

Then you have the grief whores. . . these are people who are constantly throwing around the "Remember 9-11" bullshit along with waving their little tear soaked American flags. If you weren't there, if nobody you know was killed there, if you were not directly effected by the events of 9-11 and you're still going around 9 years late getting all emotional and tore up over those events then you are probably a psychotic grief junkie.

My WTC story:
I remember when I was a teenager catching a bus into the city and making my way out to Staten Island to hook up with a pretty little blond girl I'd met in summer camp. I ended up walking down the medium of the highway that runs along the river in lower Manhattan while trying to get down to the Staten Island ferry (yea, I was a country bumpkin trying to make my way through the maze of NYC without having a clue about public transportation, etc.). I remember looking up at the double towered monstrosity they were building that seemed to loom directly over me a reach infinitely into the sky. The tops were covered in yellow plastic. It was an incredible sight for a 16 yr old hick from upstate. As I was looking up I got dizzy and almost fell backwards into the speeding traffic on the four lane highway. . . that scared the hell outta me. Every time I ever went to NYC after that I'd gaze at those towers in wonder and amazement and think about the awesome perspective I had on them that day.

As I watched them crumble on Sept. 11, 2001 I wept. I wept because I felt the horror of watching all those people die. I knew right then that thousands of people were dying before my eyes. I wept because those immense breath taking icons of American civilization were crumbling before my eyes. I didn't just weep, I cried hard. I cried out loud with my face buried in my hands. It was one of the most horrifying things I ever witnessed.

I've moved on from that moment of grief and shock a looooong time ago. I don't use it to inspire hate within me for some ethnic group. I don't use it to justify the terrible misdeeds done by my country.
If you're still waving the flag and sporting your "remember 9-11" tee shirt, that's all you're doing is playing some dumb fuck pitiful role. You're a sorry ass grief monkey. Get over it, move on and do some thing positive for your country instead of living in the past and building a collective resentment that will eventually destroy us all. . . yes, the collective hate and resentment of something totally irrelevant like that will destroy our country. You aren't patriots. You're a bunch of sorry assed dip shits who have no idea what patriotism or Americanism really means.
Fuck all of you.

Corporate irresponsibility

Now here's an article that defines corporate culture of the 21st Century.
"Take no responsibility. Assess blame and place it upon others."

These piece of shit corpo-fascist pricks will NEVER take the responsibility they should. Decent human beings accept responsibility for the wrongs they do. They admit theirpast wrongs, make ammends and go on. Not these corporate mother fuckers. They are not decent human beings. They are nothing but greed driven and profit controlled. They will do whatever it takes wherever they have to do it to protect the next quarter's bottom line.
These are not decent human beings. They are piece of shit corporate entities. They will use their power, might and money to convince YOU that they are doing the public good and they are so very sorry about the Gulf oil spill, "BUT IT'S NOT OUR FAULT!"
Now everyone buy our oil and pay no attention to the environmental catastrophe that has befallen the Gulf of Mexico. Forget about those thousands of people whose lives have been shattered.

Somebody would be in jail if our government wasn't a co-conspirator in this inhuman recreant mess.

BP: Multiple companies, teams contributed to spill
Harry R. Weber, Michael Kunzelman And Dina Cappiello, Associated Press Writers – 33 mins ago

NEW ORLEANS – Oil giant BP PLC said in an internal report released Wednesday before a key piece of evidence has been analyzed that multiple companies and work teams contributed to the massive Gulf of Mexico spill that fouled waters and shorelines for months.

In its 193-page report posted on its website Wednesday, the British company describes the incident as an accident that arose from a complex and interlinked series of mechanical failures, human judgments, engineering design, operational implementation and team interfaces.

BP spread the blame around, and even was critical of its own workers' conduct, but it defended the design of its well and it was careful in its assessments. It already faces hundreds of lawsuits and billions of dollars of liabilities. In public hearings, it had already tried to shift some of the blame to rig owner Transocean Ltd. and cement contractor Halliburton. BP was leasing the rig from Transocean and owned the well that blew out.

And here's a great tactic for shirking all corporate responsibility in a corporate tragedy: Stand there like a 5 year old in front of the horrible mess and shrug your shoulders and say "gee, I don't know what happened."

Massey official 'mystified' by mine disaster
By Ken Ward Jr.
Staff writer

CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Massey Energy officials said Monday that safety checks revealed no methane buildup or ventilation problems at the company's Upper Big Branch Mine just prior to the explosion that killed 29 miners three weeks ago.

"There was no evidence of a dangerous condition," said Massey board member Stanley C. Suboleski. "I'm mystified at what occurred at the mine on April 5."

Maybe we should put this scumbag along with the rest of his backwoods moron coal company executive buddies into a room full of methane gas and then ignite a spark. No, that would be too quick for these murdering shit piles.

Oh the bitter irony. . .

OK, Jimi Hendrix used the same line in Stone Free. Does that mean that President Obama ripped it from him? Hardly. . . uh, FUCKING hardly.

Read the way it went down and Jimi Hendrix's lyric below. . .

Obama channels Hendrix on critics: ‘They talk about me like a dog’
By Holly Bailey - Tue Sep 7, 12:10 pm ET

Has President Obama been listening to a lot of Jimi Hendrix lately? With just under two months to go before Election Day, Obama kicked off the fall campaign season Monday with an aggressive speech targeting Republicans. But it was an off-script moment in the speech that's attracted the most attention, as Obama accused his GOP critics of talking about him "like a dog."

"Some powerful interests who had been dominating the agenda in Washington for a very long time -- and they're not always happy with me -- they talk about me like a dog. That's not in my prepared remarks, but it's true," Obama said during a speech at Wisconsin's Laborfest on Monday.

Though Obama didn't acknowledge it, the line was a verbatim quote from "Stone Free," the first song Hendrix wrote after moving to England in 1966. "They talk about me like a dog," the song says. "Talkin about the clothes I wear. But they don't realize they're the ones who's square."

Let's consider; In hip culture, meaning anyone who has been the slightest bit cool in the past 35 yrs, "talk about me (her, him, them, it) like a dog" is fairly common usage. I believe I learned it back in the mid 70s from a group of Black people I spent a lot of time hanging out with. "woman talked about me like I was some kinda dog" would have been a common of hand thing to hear.
Being disrespected verbally is being talked to like a dog.
So, the irony is that while these stupid fucks want to make an issue out of nothing (oh, believe me, they will before this is all over) the truth is, "they don't realize they're the ones who's square."

I'm getting so tired of this nonsense.

The politics of infrastructure

Obama calling for more infrastructure spending
By JULIE PACE, Associated Press Writer Julie Pace, Associated Press Writer – 9 mins ago

WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama is asking Congress to approve at least $50 billion in long-term investments in the nation's roads, railways and runways in a pre-election effort to show he's trying to stimulate the sputtering economy.

Infrastructure is what makes or breaks us economically. Our infrastructure is tetering on the brink of collapse. We will soon have a plaque of bridge collapses, accidents caused by highways breaking apart, airport closings, etc.

Fuck "economic stimulus" excuses, tell it like it is and just do it!!!!

Another Gulf oil rig explosion

Let's hope and pray this one doesn't turn out to be like the last.

Gulf oil rig explodes off La. coast
By The Associated Press

GRAND ISLE, La. -- An offshore oil rig exploded in the Gulf of Mexico on Thursday, west of the site of the April blast that caused the massive oil spill.

A commercial helicopter company reported the blast around 9:30 a.m. CDT Thursday, Coast Guard Petty Officer Casey Ranel said. Seven helicopters, two airplanes and four boats were en route to the site, about 80 miles south of Vermilion Bay along the central Louisiana coast.

Just because it wasn't "producing" doesn't mean it isn't capable of gushing oil.

When will America get tired of corporation ruining our land, air and waters with impunity?
