‘Politics is distasteful…..’

Check it out. It might change your view of a few things….


Unity 08!

August 26, 2008

From my ‘progressive’ acquaintances, can’t call ’em friends anymore friends hang with ya even if they think you are wrong., on facebook I read and hear about how fabulous the Dem Convention in Colorado is going. I understand the weather is great and that Michelle Obama gave a good speech. Swell.

Here’s a slightly different look:

‘Get over it loser!’ Is a phrase Clinton supporters are apt to hear in the streets….

I’ve gotta tell ya folks, that is not how you build bridges, win over Hillary’s supporters and re-unite a party.  But that’s the kind of thing Hillary’s folks are hearing from BHO’s crowd in Denver this week, and the only way that’s going to stop is if The Chosen One takes the lead and tells them to knock it off’.

Check out the rest. Me? I’ll have a lot more to say later. I’m busy with computer construction and marketing. One thing I will be talking a lot about, as I find it interesting, is the tremendous similarity between how Obamacans, some Hillaristas and yer median RedStater act and think. One thing that Obama’s candidacy has made crystal clear for those with eyes to see is that politics can be a great leveler. The real question is….

Why the level is so low.


Do You Ever Wonder Why the Roads in Your Town are Turning into Gravel?

August 17, 2008

Wonder no more. It’s because ‘some people’ are not paying their fair share of the cost of government. Otherwise known as taxes. I know this story has been in the corporatist press but I thought this post:

Based on IRS records, a recent GAO report indicates that many corporations claimed to owe $0 in U.S. taxes from 1998 – 2005: roughly 28%-53% of large foreign-controlled and 23%-38% of large U.S.-controlled corporations. [The GAO considers a "large" corporation one with at least $250 million in assets or $50 million in gross receipts.

From NoQuarter had a lot more detail and so link to it.

There is a growing opportunity for those of us who are economically literate, a tiny minority, to take back the high ground in the never ending debate about taxes, government and what should be done by same. The ‘conservative’ shills who’ve been preaching the Friedman Lunacy for decades are gob-smacked that the ‘trickle down’ theory has at last been proved to be the utter bullshit that it is. There is a desperate air of ‘now what do we do…’  as the third artificial bubble of ‘asset building’, housing, pops following  the dot.com bubble and ‘financialization’ coming from the morons such as Greenspan who’ve been ‘supervising ‘ our economy. As Ol’ Shakespeare opined, ‘The truth will out…’ and now folks are waking up to the realization that while their real income has declined every year since Nixon under the Republican fantasy machine corporations and very wealthy individuals merely extract whatever amounts of cash they need from the U.S. Treasury, that’s us Homer, in the form of  taxes not paid.

This report points a finger at why you, yeah you Homer, ‘can’t’ have healthcare, good schools, well-maintained roads, safe food and on and on…. The next time some low-info fool tells you, ‘Oh, we can’t afford that…’ about some needed social program tell them the following:

‘Of course we can afford that. If corporations and the uber-rich would pay their fair share of taxes instead of bribing Congress to give them a free pass we’d’ have plenty of money to take care of the real, immediate needs of our society.’

And if they start bloviating tell them this:

‘Surely you are not advocating that some, particularly those best able to pay, should be excused from their social obligation to pay their fair share of the costs they helped create are you?’

More on how your are being screwed solely because you are NOT rich in future posts.

steal…

seize…

arrogate…

Hmmmm…. I don’t see fair, just, proper…. Above all, the one word I don’t see because what was done, in secret, is not…is not unless you are in the grip of a dangerous delusion….

Democratic!

….no matter what Howie or Donna or Kos or Bowers or Kid Oakland or anybody else says or does what was done in that meeting was as un-American as antithetical to my value system, to the values this nation was built on as anything the Communists, the Nazis or any of the other heinous scum we had smash to survive ever asserted.

600,000 voters not just disenfranchised!

Fuck no, their votes, votes they cast for Clinton, were stolen.

As I’ve said many a time Sinclair Lewis made no assertion about which side that figure, ‘….wrapped in a flag and carrying a cross…’ was coming from. At this moment  it would be hard to argue that it’s coming from anywhere but the left.

Fortunately, no matter what Obama, Howie, Miss Nancy, Donna and the rest of the corrupt knot of toads which squats in our Party can treat the GE like they have the primary. Such utter contempt would not go down with the ‘bitter, clinging masses…’

Frankly, I’ve never been so ashamed of my fellow citizens in my life. Not even during the Vietnam occupation did I feel like this. One million Iraqi dead….

And Democrats cannot find a better candidate than ‘The One’ Miss Nancy and the Knot of Toads on the Hill have in ‘selecting not electing’ Senator Obama, who, to remark on just one of the truly stupid things he’s done lately, feels it more important to play golf than address the nation about Russia’s rending of Georgia.

A faithful ally being dismembered and the man has to make his tee time.

Disgusting.

And to anyone I’ve called out by name here or who disagrees with my assertion here I’ve only got one question for ya?

Just one….

What if that was your vote Howie and Donna stole?

What then fellow ‘progressives’?

What then?


Sometimes it really does only take one picture….And this is it for me.

Howie, Donna, Miss Nancy, Senator Obama,  ‘Fittin’ Harry Reid, Rahm ‘The Rabbit’ Emmanuel, Senators Schumer, Kerry, Kennedy, there is someone on the phone for you.

Sez it’s very urgent!

Yeah, something about don’t forget to pick up your ‘bag’.

No guesses as to what it’s stuffed with.

Your government for sale to…

Well, whoever wants to buy.


‘Rope the Sun’

June 28, 2008

Yep, while Senator Obama as lining up like a good lil’ trooper to sign off on Cheney’s Energy Bill….

‘Cheney’s Energy Bill….’

Man that just sounds wrong does it not? ‘Cheney ‘s’ ‘Energy’ ‘Bill’. Huh….Yeah, according to the Big Men of the ‘Sphere Kos, Marshall and Bowers if’n Barry does it or is for in, for no matter how short a time, why then it must be ‘progressive’. Have I got that right ‘BoneHead’ Bowers?

Oh…goody…

Where was I? Oh, yeah a sustainable society, something we don’t have. Something nobody really gives a f$%k about even though they’re always talking about it. Someone better get serious soon. The Japanese are dead serious about it. See, they don’t have a lot of desert which is a central resource America is ‘rich’ in and which Scientific American’s The Grand Solar Plan takes advantage of to produce all of our electricity needs, including converting every car to plug in, by 2050. Cost, $420 Billion. Sound outrageous? Read the article at the end below.

Nope, no desert but plenty of Sci-Fi and lots of Outer Space. The Japanese take advantage of both in:

‘Rope the Sun, Suzuki-san!’

Kakuda, Japan—In a recent spin-off of the classic Japanese animated series Mobile Suit Gundam, the depletion of fossil fuels has forced humanity to turn to space-based solar power generation as
global conflicts rage over energy shortages. The sci-fi saga is set in the year 2307, but even now real Japanese scientists are working on the hardware needed to realize orbital generators as a form of clean,
renewable energy, with plans to complete a prototype in about 20 years.The concept of solar panels beaming down energy from space has long been pondered—and long been dismissed as too costly and impractical. But in
