If it walks like a bigot, squawks like a bigot . . . . .

While this sorry excuse for a human asshole Russell Pearce has a constitutional right to say whatever the fuck is on his small mind ---





--- folks like me also have that same right to point out that Pearce is fond of mingling with racist, Neo-Nazi skinheads ---


Visit msnbc.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy




So keep that in mind when you think about the true motivation behind his driving the Arizona immigration law forward. It speaks volumes.

A Small Fraction of a Man

Saturday 13 November 2010

by: William Rivers Pitt, t r u t h o u t | Op-Ed


George W. Bush was all over my television this past week, all over the newspapers, and the feelings inspired by his sudden reappearance are almost beyond my capacity to describe. There was the story about his hearty approval of waterboarding. There was the story that had him contemplating dropping Dick Cheney from the administration. There was the story that had him describing himself as a "dissenter" on the Iraq invasion. He did interviews, and excerpts of his new book dribbled out, and it was all too much to endure.

This is the guy, I thought to myself when I saw his face or heard his voice. This is the guy.

This is the guy who took a massive Clinton administration budget surplus and gave it away to his friends at the top of the tax bracket, a move that laid the groundwork for our current economic calamity.

This is the guy who breezed past a pointed warning about Osama bin Laden, terrorism and airplanes on August 6, 2001, because he was on vacation and couldn't be bothered.

This is the guy who parlayed that massive failure into a constant goad of fear to be wielded with impunity against the people he purported to lead. Plastic sheeting and duct tape, anthrax under your pillow, and of course, weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.

This is the guy who, not even a month after the Towers came down, looked into a television camera and said, "We need to counter the shockwave of the evildoer by having individual rate cuts accelerated and by thinking about tax rebates."

Oh yes, this is the guy who stood before the American people in January of 2003 and proclaimed that Iraq was in possession of 26,000 liters of anthrax, 38,000 liters of botulinum toxin, 500 tons of sarin, mustard and VX gas, mobile biological weapons labs, uranium from Niger for use in a "robust" nuclear weapons programs, and that Iraq enjoyed connections to al Qaeda that led directly to the attacks of September 11.

This was the guy who presided over the outing of a deep-cover CIA agent after her husband had the temerity to call him a liar in the public prints. That agent was running a network for the purpose of thwarting any person or group that might try to deliver weapons of mass destruction to terrorists.

This is the guy who strutted like a bantam rooster under a banner reading "Mission Accomplished," bragging about the end of a war that was to grind on for seven more years, and grinds on even to this day, and tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow.

This is the guy who said "Bring it on" and put a target on the backs of tens of thousands of US troops. This is the guy who is personally responsible for the death and injury of hundreds of thousands of innocent human beings. The body count from his administration is breathtaking in size and scope.

This is the guy who allowed the intelligence services of this nation to violate the Constitutional rights of its citizens in a way never seen before.

This is the guy who turned the entire world against America after that same world embraced us so completely after September 11. World leaders could not stand to be in the same room with him, and openly mocked him, thus humiliating us all.

This is the guy who literally fiddled while Hurricane Katrina devoured the city of New Orleans.

This guy actually said he considered dropping Cheney from the administration? It would be comic if it were not so pointedly fraudulent. Cheney ran the government, ran roughshod over every right he found meddlesome, and Bush sat by and let him do it with that same simpering smirk on his face.

This is the guy who set stem cell research back more than a decade because of his overarching fealty to "snowflake babies" over living, breathing, suffering people.

This is the guy who unleashed all the horrors of the torture chamber because the lawyers said it was OK. If the president does it, it's not illegal, right? Nixon came up with that line, but this is the guy who took it farther than it has ever been taken before.

This is the guy, and now he's back on my television again, and it makes me want to eat my own teeth. I endured him for eight long, brutal years, and have often thought since that no matter how bad things get - and they have, indeed, gotten pretty damned bad - I don't have to endure his face or his voice or his abject serial failures anymore.

But now he's back, and it is like returning to a nightmare.

I don't know what this George W. Bush Reputation Rehabilitation Tour will actually accomplish in the end. The same 20% of the country that kept his approval ratings from slipping into single digits - said group now being known as the "Tea Party" - will go out and buy his book. They will lap up his mealy-mouthed pabulum like cats into the cream, and some of our "mainstream" commentators will try to shoehorn the idea that he is missed into the national conversation.

He is not. George W. Bush was, and likely will forever be, the single worst American president in the nation's history. To outstrip his remarkable record of failure, criminality and disgrace, a future president will have to personally cause the Earth to crash into the sun.

All I can do for now is avoid the TV, stay away from the newspapers, and pray to God on High that this small fraction of a man will soon retreat back into the ignominy from which he has emerged. There is no salvaging him, and thanks to him, there may be no salvaging America in his aftermath.

We are all children of this bastard fool now. The least he can do is stay in the shadows where he belongs, while we toil and sweat to repair what he wrought.

Devastatingly spot fucking on. And if your average American wasn't so enamored with style over substance, this prick, along with Cheney, would be sitting in a docket in The Hague right now being grilled by war crimes prosecutors.

Democracy! U.S. Election 2000 Style!



Well -- you have to admit -- our attempt at nation building has satisfied one major goal -- American style election rigging.

By RAHIM FAIEZ and DEB RIECHMANN, Associated Press Rahim Faiez And Deb Riechmann, Associated Press – 36 mins ago

KABUL, Afghanistan – The Afghan election commission said Thursday that it had opened an investigation into allegations that a top government official pressured an election worker to rig the results of the parliamentary ballot in western Afghanistan....

....The Afghan election commission said it had received an audio recording of a more than 20-minute telephone call purportedly between an election worker in Kabul and Ismail Khan, the Afghan minister of energy of water and the former powerful governor of Herat province in western Afghanistan.

The recording, first broadcast on Afghan television and obtained Thursday by The Associated Press, is the latest allegation of fraud in the Sept. 18 parliamentary election and one of the first pieces of evidence that high-level government officials may have tried to fix results.

Sure makes me feel good about that $190 million we're spending every day over there. Money well spent.


----k

Everything's big in Texas - Especially the Lies...



George W. Bush's memoir has only been out a few days and already high level officials in two of the governments of countries who have been considered staunch allies in the Global War on Terror are calling Bush a liar:

[The British]
British officials said today there was no evidence to support claims by George Bush, the former US president, that information extracted by "waterboarding" saved British lives by foiling attacks on Heathrow airport and Canary Wharf. In his memoirs, Bush said the practice – condemned by Downing Street as torture – was used in CIA interrogations of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the alleged mastermind of the 9/11 attacks on the US.

[The Germans]Former German Chancellor Gerhard Schröder has said that ex-US President George W. Bush is not telling the truth in his memoirs, released on Tuesday. Schröder said he never offered his unconditional support for Bush's aggressive policy against Iraq.


My conservative friends worship the ground Bush walks on -- without for a moment contemplating the sad fact that they are the only ones who are of the belief that the man has so much as a shred of character and integrity in him.

And the circus clowns are ready for showtime!



Welcome to shooting watermelons in the back yard [part 2].

Let the subpoenas begin. Expect a wave of investigations targeting the Obama White House. Benjamin Sarlin looks at the likely probes, from the BP spill to the Sestak deal.

One of the biggest consequences of the 1994 Republican Revolution was the wave of investigations the new GOP majority carried out against the White House, culminating in President Clinton's impeachment. Now that the 2010 midterm elections are over, many Democrats and progressive commentators are concerned the same fate will befall President Obama, given the intensity of conservative loathing for his administration.

Oh joy! I'm on pins and needles. I cannot wait for the non-stop, televised hearings investigating how Obama's Muslim, Kenyan parents managed to put a phony advertisement in a Honolulu newspaper in 1961 announcing his birth in a local hospital, then get a white family from Kansas (including a WWII vet) to raise him as their own -- all with the evil, planned foresight of one day ensuring he was elected President of the United States with the sole purpose of imposing Sharia law on all Americans. The excitement of such a pending spectacle is nothing short of titillating.

Beck joins Limbaugh's call to punish Americans who voted for Democrats...

Hot on the heels of Limpballs declaration the day before yesterday that Americans who cast votes for Democrats hate their country, today, post-election, we have the resident Fox News carnival barker Glenn Beck stating that because California and Nevada voters decided to vote for Democrats that those two states should be excommunicated from the union.

Remember folks -- these statements are coming from people who proclaim the loudest that they represent and are the "real" Americans and that anyone who disagrees with them is not a "real" American.

This is why I fight them. And yesterday's election results notwithstanding, I will continue to fight them. The Limbaughs and the Becks of the world are making a direct assault on the core principles of democracy and if they are successful it becomes just a matter of time before America joins the ignominious ranks of the world's foremost banana Republics.

Oh my . . . . Tweety done dood it now . . . Lol!

While I am loathe to promote any views by Chris "Tweety" Matthews, this one was simply too good to pass up. And the fact that Tweety agrees with my assessment of the current level of right wing political thuggery in the previous post is additional motivation for me to set aside my intense dislike of the toad and give him a pat on the head.

This is sure to cause some right-wingnut cranial cavities to explode:





The wingnuts hate having a mirror held up to them like this from major media figures. Frankly, I can't think of a better way for the mainstream media to regain my trust than by just fucking telling the truth about the Teabaggers, regardless of how loud they scream.

Tweety gets a cracker.

Democracy: Jack Booted Thug Style


WASHINGTON -- This election season, a man was arrested for hitting a protester at a rally for Washington GOP Senate candidate Dino Rossi, a man stomped on the head of a woman at a campaign event for Kentucky GOP Senate candidate Rand Paul, local police wrestled to the ground a Democratic man at an event for Rep. Eric Cantor (R), Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-Ariz.) received suspicious powder to his office, biker supporters of Florida GOP congressional candidate Allen West harassed a Democratic tracker and Alaska GOP Senate candidate Joe Miller's private security force handcuffed and detained a reporter.

And all that was in just the past two weeks.

Because that is what fascist bullies do. The brown shirts of 1930's Germany demonstrated to the world how very easy it was to whip up hysteria and fear in the masses during uncertain and convulsive economic periods and convince people to put their faith in political leaders who in saner, economically stable times couldn't be elected small town dog catchers.

I see two potentially dangerous scenarios occurring here after the elections are over. First, if the Teabaggers fail to get their more odious candidates (Angle, Paul, O'Donnell, Paladino, Miller, etc.) elected and also fail to wrest control of Congress from the Democrats, watch how quickly the threats of, and actual instances of, political violence escalate. Throw in some good old fashioned southern strategy racism (nigger and illegal beaner voting fraud accusations), and you have the perfect recipe for the makings of another Oklahoma City bombing realistically coming to pass.

The other scenario is that Teabagger candidates win it all and take control of both the Senate and the House. They undoubtedly will be emboldened to storm Congress and attempt to shove every one of their destructively lunatic proposals down the throat of the Democrats. The Democrats, true to form, will cave-in like a Chilean copper mine. If Obama resists with his veto pen, The Teabaggers, now with congressional subpoena power, will then get busily to work manufacturing faux scandals out of thin air in an attempt to put the finishing touches on destroying the popularly elected President and quite likely will even go so far as attempting to begin impeachment proceedings against Obama just because they are extremist fuckheads and they can. And that folks will just be the beginning of the fun.

The Dems do deserve to lose seats - no doubt. And Obama needs to have the fear of the prospect of an even more right-wing Congress put in him -- if anything to nudge him back towards his promise of fighting against the fuckers (big banks, Wall Street crooks, neo-con war mongerers, etc.) who got this country into this mess to begin with, and stand shoulder to shoulder with the hard working, decent and fair-minded people of this country who want to see America succeed in the best interest of the most people possible.

However - putting the Sharron Angles and Rand Pauls of the world in power will accomplish nothing other than destroying any hope of such progress occurring and will undoubtedly accelerate the downward spiral of America into the ugly reality of an oligarchic/plutocratic/theocratic cesspool -- which is also known as "Banana Republicanism."

I am hoping (and hopefully not beyond hope) that the majority of Americans still retain some semblance of sanity and will reject the more extremist candidates and views of the Teabaggers on Nov. 2 and give this country a chance to move forward - even if it's only that that forward movement can only be done one excruciating baby step at a time.

No he didn't! Did he??

Amazing. And the right wingers and Teabaggers will crow in agreement and back-slap each other in self-righteous smugness and claim that it's true because everyone knows that it was all the evil Clinton's fault.

Former President George W. Bush signaled on Thursday that he sees not reforming Social Security as his greatest failure from the eight years he served in the White House, the Chicago Tribune reports. In 2005, the president unsuccessfully tried to partially privatize Social Security.

The unpopular Republican leader made the suggestion while speaking at a trade conference in the Windy City, where he discussed his legacy and also offered a glimpse into what readers can expect from his forthcoming memoir, Decision Points.

"I would like to be remembered as a guy who had a set of priorities, and was willing to live by those priorities," explained Bush. "In terms of accomplishments, my biggest accomplishment is that I kept the country safe amidst a real danger."


I'm literally left speechless by that underlined quote.

I guess, based on the clear reading of that statement, that this minor, insignificant episode apparently doesn't count:





While it's true the average American has the attention span and memory skills of a fruit fly - how anyone can possibly give Bush and Cheney a free pass when it comes to 9/11 is light years beyond my modest human ability to comprehend. And the astonishing fact that Bush appears to be giving himself a free pass with that mind-bogglingly untrue statement simply leaves me tempted to believe that it must be nothing more than a sad, sick and twisted hoax of some sort.

Teabaggers: Destroying the Constitution to Save It . . . Yeah - makes no sense to me either



Interesting article about the propensity of the Teabaggers to stake claim as the righteous and sole defenders of the U.S. Constitution.

This excerpt summed it all up for me quite nicely:

The Tea Partiers belong to a different tradition—a tradition of divisive fundamentalism. Like other fundamentalists, they seek refuge from the complexity and confusion of modern life in the comforting embrace of an authoritarian scripture and the imagined past it supposedly represents. Like other fundamentalists, they see in their good book only what they want to see: confirmation of their preexisting beliefs. Like other fundamentalists, they don’t sweat the details, and they ignore all ambiguities. And like other fundamentalists, they make enemies or evildoers of those who disagree with their doctrine. In the 1930s, the American Liberty League opposed FDR’s New Deal by flogging its version of the Constitution with what historian Frederick Rudolph once described as “a worshipful intensity.” In the 1960s, the John Birch Society imagined a vast communist conspiracy in similar terms. In 1992 conservative activists formed what came to be known as the Constitution Party—Sharron Angle was once a member—in order to “restore American jurisprudence to its Biblical foundations and to limit the federal government to its Constitutional boundaries.” Today, Angle asserts that “separation of church and state is an unconstitutional doctrine,” and Palin claims that “the Constitution…essentially acknowledg[es] that our unalienable rights…come from God.” The point is always the same: to suggest that the Constitution, like the Bible, decrees what’s right and wrong (rather than what’s legal and illegal), and to insist that only the fundamentalists and their ilk can access its truths. We are moral, you are not; we represent America, you do not. Theirs is the rallying cry of culture war.

If you have been following the short-lived existence of the teabagger movement as I have been, (since it's inception which was about -oh- a week after Obama was sworn in), you'll understand the thrust of this article completely. And once you see what these people are all about and who is funding them and the ideology that is being promoted by that funding, you should be very afraid for the future of democracy in this country. And if you don't speak out now, your voice will be the last I want to hear when it's too late.

An ode to bartcop . . . . .



Around 10 years ago, on the heels of the GOP impeachment witchhunt of Bill Clinton and subsequent rigged election of George W. Bush, I started to turn away from the traditional media and embrace alternative views and sources of news on the internet.

At that time I had no clue what a "blogger" was, nor did I have any inkling that I would one day become one myself. Nevertheless, as I surfed the web in those depressing days, anxiously trying to find political viewpoints other than the full of shit pap I was getting from the mainstream print, television and radio news, I ran across a couple of blogs called Media Whores Online! (MWO) and bartcop.com. MWO went away (mysteriously?) after a couple of years, but bartcop soldiered on - giving voice and empowerment to we liberals who were forsaken and wandering the political media wilderness.

I remember distinctly one of the very first posts I ever read on bartcop was bart's The Myth of the "liberal" media rant. It was sweet music to this forlorn liberal's eyes and ears to see someone express in writing every thing I always knew, but never heard anyone dare say, about the state of the media in America.

I was smitten.

10 years later I still have that bartcop page bookmarked in my various web browsers, even though I have probably gone through a dozen computers during that time. It is a Picassoesque masterpiece, and the fact that Keith Olbermann recently gave kudos to this inimitable bartcop screed on his MSNBC show, underscores the importance of it's content and the relevance that it has to what is going on in America today.

Therefore - as a one-fingered (stated with liberal brotherhood in mind) salute and with much deference I offer this revised, updated version as a symbol to bartcop of this one reader's devotion to the man and his modest, albeit noble, mission statement:

WELCOME TO BARTCOP.COM: A modem, a smart mouth and the truth

Bart - please forgive me for taking liberties with your proprietary material. It is done to honor your contribution to the good side of the cause - nothing more, nothing less.

And without further adieu -- here is my updated version of bartcop's The Myth of the "liberal" media:

The Myth of the "liberal" media:

Let's do a "what if" so I can make a point. I think it's a good one.
I think it's so good, I'd like to hear from anyone who disagrees.

What if a show like ABC's Nightline did a "hatchet job" on Sarah Palin? It wouldn't have to really be a hatchet job, but any honest appraisal of that idiot's qualifications would prove conclusively that she's a non-thinking, out of touch extremist - and that's all. But honestly - what would happen if Nightline did a deliberately unflattering, mean-spirited portrait of Palin?

I'll tell you what would happen:

Rush Limbaugh would spend days on his radio show saying it wasn't true and offer hours of rebuttal as to why Nightline was lying.

Bill O'Reilly would spend at least two hours on both his radio and television shows saying it wasn't true and offer rebuttal as to why Nightline was lying.

Sean Hannity would spend at least two hours on both his radio and television shows, saying it wasn't true and offer rebuttal as to why Nightline was lying.

saying it wasn't true and offer rebuttal as to why Nightline was lying.

Juan Williams and Mara Liason would cower like the phony liberals they are saying it wasn't true and offer rebuttal as to why Nightline was lying.

John McLaughlin would spend at least an hour on his syndicated show saying it wasn't true and offer rebuttal as to why Nightline was lying.

Chris Matthews would spend at least an hour on his show, with his hand in his lap, drooling over Palin and saying it wasn't true and offer rebuttal as to why Nightline was lying.

G. Gordon Liddy would spend at least three hours on his radio show
saying it wasn't true and offer rebuttal as to why Nightline was lying.

Fox and Friends would spend at least an hour on their morning show saying it wasn't true and offer rebuttal as to why Nightline was lying.

Michael Medved would spend at least an hour on his radio show
saying it wasn't true and offer rebuttal as to why Nightline was lying.

Sam and Cokie would spend at least an hour on This Week
saying it wasn't true and offer rebuttal as to why Nightline was lying.

Good Morning America with George Stephanopoulos would spend all morning swearing that it wasn't true, and offering rebuttals as to why Nightline was lying.

Bob Schieffer would spend at least an hour on his show
saying it wasn't true and offer rebuttal as to why Nightline was lying.

David Gregory would spend at least an hour on Meet the Press
saying it wasn't true and offer rebuttal as to why Nightline was lying.

Dennis Prager would spend at least an hour on his radio show
saying it wasn't true and offer rebuttal as to why Nightline was lying.

Michael Reagan would spend at least an hour on his radio show
saying it wasn't true and offer rebuttal as to why Nightline was lying.

Larry Elder would spend at least an hour on his radio show
saying it wasn't true and offer rebuttal as to why Nightline was lying.

Mike Gallagher would spend at least an hour on his radio show
saying it wasn't true and offer rebuttal as to why Nightline was lying.

Oliver North would spend at least an hour on his radio show
saying it wasn't true and offer rebuttal as to why Nightline was lying.

Larry Kudlow would spend at least an hour on his CNBC show giving shitty financial advice and saying it wasn't true and offer rebuttal as to why Nightline was lying.

Michael Savage would spend at least an hour on his radio show curb stomping puppies and saying it wasn't true and offer rebuttal as to why Nightline was lying.

Ann Coulter would spend at least an hour on whatever Fox News show she could get her suspiciously masculine adam's apple on saying it wasn't true and offer rebuttal as to why Nightline was lying.

Still with me? We're close to the end...

Brian Williams would spend at least an hour on his news show
saying it wasn't true and offer rebuttal as to why Nightline was lying.

Katie Couric would spend at least an hour on her news show
saying it wasn't true and offer rebuttal as to why Nightline was lying.

Andrea Mitchell would spend at least an hour on her news show
saying it wasn't true and offer rebuttal as to why Nightline was lying.

Wolf Blitzer would spend at least an hour on The Situation Room saying it wasn't true and offer rebuttal as to why Nightline was lying.

Candy Crowley would spend at least an hour on The State of the Union saying it wasn't true and offer rebuttal as to why Nightline was lying.

Bill Schneider and Candy Crowley would do an hour special on CNN
saying it wasn't true, and offering rebuttal as to why Nightline was lying.

John Stossel would have an hour long special on Fox: "Is lying OK for liberals?"

Howard Kurtz would write a column and spend 30 minutes on Reliable Sources asking if the media wasn't being too hard on a simple, decent, down-to-earth hockey mom.

CNN would re-hire Rick Sanchez, make him apologize to the Jews, then let him spend an hour on his new/old show offering rebuttal as to why Nightline is lying.

Armstrong Williams would accept a $240,000 under the table payment to promote legislation that is designed to ensure that Congress never, ever again takes up debate on The Fairness Doctrine.

Newt Gingrich would start a PAC by exhorting donors to fund his television and lecture appearances to offer rebuttals as to why Nightline is lying.

Andrew Breitbart would publish a deceitfully edited video of some of his hired thugs posing as reporters and purportedly getting Nightline producers to admit they were lying and every mainstream media outlet would play it without rebuttal or question.

Michelle Malkin would write a book condemning Nightline.
Dinesh D'Souza would write a book condemning Nightline
Ann Coulter would write a book condemning Nightline.
Charles Krauthammer would write a book condemning Nightline.
Kathleen Parker would write a book condemning Nightline.
Laura Ingraham would write a book condemning Nightline.
Peggy Noonan would write a book condemning Nightline.
Andrew Sullivan would write a book condemning Nightline.
Ross Douthat would write a book condemning Nightline.
Jonah Goldberg would write a book condemning Nightline.
Glenn Beck would write a sappy soft porn fiction novel with a storyline condemning Nightline.

Every single regional AM radio station would put their 24x7 right wing, screeching talking heads to work on their talk shows offering rebuttal after rebuttal after rebuttal as to why Nightline is lying.

Karl Rove, Dick Armey and Glenn Beck, funded by millions of unreported dollars from Texas oil billionaires, will form a 3rd political party which they claim is motivated only by patriotism and love of the constitution, call themselves the Tea Party, field extremist, fundamentalist nutcase candidates and convince Idiocracy Americans to vote for these lying, fascist fuckers entirely against their own economic interests and they would cow the execs at ABC to have Nightline removed from the air.

OK, we're going to call the above "Exhibit A."

Now, everyone on that list has done at least a dozen hit pieces on a major Democrat.

My question is ---- Where is "Exhibit B?"

When all of those conservative hacks and media outlets attack Democrats, who in the mainstream media does the rebuttal for the Democrat?

Even you sloth-brained right wingers have to admit that nobody on that list has fucking EVER - EVUH! defended a fabricated lie against a Democrat.

There is no "Exhibit B," because there are so few liberal/progressive voices on television and radio. The closest you can get is Keith Olbermann and Rachel Maddow on MSNBC and Bill Maher for a few months out of the year on HBO. But, undeniably, there is barely a liberal whisper on television or radio, because the fact of the fucking matter is that most of the public airwaves airtime is hogged up by DOZENS & DOZENS of bloviating, lying, right-wing, misinforming, apologist shows whose sole livelihood is making shit up about and smearing liberals and Democrats -- and always cowardly un-rebutted!

I am unflinchingly confident that you conservative zombies cannot offer a truthful explanation to this mind-numbingly obvious, eyeball melting double standard.


Many thanks for doing what you do bart and keep that big, beautiful, fucking mean ass, Knuckledrag USA hammer pounding.

The World as seen thru Turdblossom Colored Glasses . . .


Just try and believe that Karl "Turdblossom" Rove actually wrote this dreck chronicling the meanness of this year's political ads by Democrats against their GOP opponents:

"Personal attacks generally don't work unless they're seen as fair, credible and pertinent. Voters must think the character shortcomings are both persistent and relevant. If not, the assaults will fail, even backfire."

That is smug hypocrisy on a level, that up until now, was probably considered unfathomably attainable to most cognitively thinking humans.

And it's only fitting that a steaming pile of scribbled horseshit like that appear in a Rupert Murdoch owned rag.

Pledge your loyalty to the Fatherland or lose your liberty!!


Miss. judge jails attorney for not reciting pledge

By HOLBROOK MOHR and ADRIAN SAINZ (AP) – 22 minutes ago

TUPELO, Miss. — When a Mississippi judge entered a courtroom and asked everyone to stand for the Pledge of Allegiance, an attorney with a reputation for fighting free speech battles stayed silent as everyone else recited the patriotic oath. The lawyer was jailed.

Didn't Americans fight a world war, sacrificing hundreds of thousands of our bravest, against a mega-maniacal tyrant who, under the threat of violence or imprisonment, forced his people to openly worship and recite pledges to himself and his thug government?

Is this where the United States is headed?

This judge is unfit for the office he holds - pure and simple. The U.S. Supreme court ruled in 1943 that it was unconstitutional for school children to be forced to recite the pledge of allegiance or salute the flag. That free speech principle has not been in credible dispute for nearly 70 years.

How much you want to wager that the Teabaggers come down overwhelmingly on the side of the judge in this case? Myopically overlooking of course, their own visceral hatred for the current government and the man and political party leading it and the revulsion they would feel having it loudly pointed out to them that the President is the freely elected leader of the United States of America and their pledge of allegiance to the United States is equal to a pledge of allegiance to the commander in chief? That would tie their panties in a knot wouldn't it?

It is nothing short of absolutely fucking mind-boggling to hear of something like this occurring at this stage of this country's history.

The Human Race: Sheep blithely meandering their way to slaughter . . .



From: Andy Soos, ENN
Published September 17, 2010 02:37 PM
2010: A Hot Year Indeed


Weather is always an easy topic of conversation. The first eight months of 2010 tied the same period in 1998 for the warmest combined land and ocean surface temperature
on record worldwide. Meanwhile, the June—August summer was the second warmest on record globally after 1998, and last month was the third warmest August on record. Separately, last month’s global average land surface temperature was the second warmest on record for August, while the global ocean surface temperature tied with 1997 as the sixth warmest for August.

The monthly analysis from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric administration (NOAA) National Climatic Data Center, which is based on records going back to 1880, has supplied the following weather/temperature highlights for 2010.


To me the global climate change debate can be summed up in an uncomplicated analogy I heard made awhile back.

The analogy is -- if your child who's been suffering terrible migraines is diagnosed with a brain tumor who are you going to trust - the 100 neurosurgeons who are recommending removal of the benign tumor because they are all in agreement that it will kill your child if left untreated --- OR --- your local Fox News watching pharmacist who is telling you to go home, give the suffering child some Children's Tylenol and don't worry about it - because it will go away on it's own?

That's pretty much the scenario when it comes to the debate between the world's most reputable climate scientists and the right-wing armchair "scientists" over the issue of global warming and the question of whether or not human industrial activities are contributing factors.

Cutting to the chase and simply put - I will trust the majority opinion, which is being advanced by dedicated, non profit motivated scientists, in a heartbeat, over the screeching right wing baboons and the glorified t.v. weathermen that the oil & gas industries underhandedly employ to pollute the dialog with their easily disprovable, Fred Flintstone-like counter arguments.

In a fucking heartbeat.

Grayson bitch slaps Taliban Dan . . . and shows rest of Dems what courage and standing up for one's convictions means

This is what I admire about Florida Congressman Alan Grayson. He's not at all afraid to go for the jugular when it comes to tangling with right wing conservatives and is not the least intimidated by the GOP thugs and their cadre of media ratfuckers.





It's not pretty, and in fact is a bit ruthless. But considering the type of people Grayson is dealing with - it makes all the sense in the world.

As a result, I consider Congressman Grayson one of only a handful of Democrats that I would consider donating my hard earned money to at this point in time.

The Legacy of Selfish Politics . . .




This is the American Dream future life for which the free market economy can do no wrong, deregulate everything, Teatard crowd has in store for all of us:

Flight for survival
Toxic emissions force family to leave home
By Brandon Evans | Published Thursday, September 23, 2010

Her husband and her 7-year-old daughter, Emma, felt sick as well.

"My daughter began having severe nosebleeds," she said. "She'd wake me up at 6 a.m., crying, covered in blood."

Emma was just diagnosed with asthma. She'd never had any respiratory problems. Emma also started breaking out in rashes and having stomach problems.

Bob also suffered from nosebleeds.

"I'm 50 years old and probably haven't had more than three or four nosebleeds in my entire lifetime," Bob said. "All of a sudden I'm getting them three times a week. It was odd."

"I hired someone to do water and air sampling at the home," she said. "The methane level in my daughter's room was at asphyxiation levels. And it was barely lower than what it was outside our home."

She showed the results to her doctor, who told her to leave her home within 48 hours.

"The doctor told me right then," she said, pausing as her voice cracked and a tear streamed across her left cheek, "I had to move immediately. Because if I did not, we would have to spend more time and money on hospitalization, on chemotherapy and morticians for my whole family."

On Saturday, Aug. 28, the Parrs said goodbye to their formerly idyllic home and moved into Bob's office in Denton. They don't know how long they'll have to stay.

"What we are going through is one of the worst things a family could have to go through," she said. "Having to leave this house and explain to my 7-year-old daughter that we've been run out of our house."

Bob and Lisa Parr aren't the sickly type. Bob built his home in 2001. He's enjoyed a long career in stone masonry and raising cattle. His home reflects the rugged, outdoor lifestyle he enjoys. Walls bear the trophies of big-game hunting in the wilds of Alaska. Black bear, mountain lions and elk are mounted on high wooden walls.

"We love it here," Lisa said while sitting in a wooden rocking chair on the back porch and gripping her husband's hand. "We're secluded, private. We just wanted to be left alone, and we've been run out of our house. It's not right. What's even more not right is we thought TCEQ would come out and help us - they would clean up this mess.

"We've had no help. We have someone who is contaminating our air. It has affected our cattle. We've lost pets. We've lost chickens. We're all sick, and we've gotten no help," she said. "I want them to fix it so we can come home. I just want to come home."


At some point you have to stand up and say enough is enough.

This country isn't being ruined by Health Care Reform advocates who believe all Americans deserve to have access to affordable care.

It is not being ruined by those who demand accountability from politicians who employ lies to lead us into unnecessary wars, then pass the bill onto our children and grandchildren.

It is not being ruined by those who believe hard working, play by the rules Americans living on Main Street deserve just as much, if not more, of a fair chance at realizing the American Dream as the reckless, selfish gamblers living on Wall Street do.

And it most definitely is not being ruined by those who believe that strong government oversight of ruthless and greed-oriented corporations does the most good for the most people.

No - America is in fact being slowly ruined by everyone who is against all of those ideals. Just ask the Parr family from that Texas story how big of fans they are now of energy industry deregulation. And this is not an isolated story. This horror is playing itself out in communities all over this country on a daily basis.

An argument could be made that this is not a political issue as it could equally effect citizens of any party. I disagree. The people who are zealously pushing to let big corporations and big industry, such as the energy industry, pursue their rapacious business goals without any government interference or any accountability are primarily Republican and now, as an extension, primarily Teabagger. That is a fact.

So basically it comes down to who do you trust more to ensure your children and grandchildren have better futures and live better lives than you? I've chosen which side I am on -- how about you?

Trash politics at its most malodorous . . .



Not to be outdone in the Teabagger Loony Tunes department --

NY GOP governor hopeful sends trash-scented flier

The Associated Press
Published: Thursday, Sep. 16, 2010 - 9:56 am
Last Modified: Thursday, Sep. 16, 2010 - 2:26 pm

ALBANY, N.Y. -- Something stinks in about 200,000 mailboxes around New York - a flier from the new Republican nominee for governor.

A garbage-scented mailing by nominee Carl Paladino features the photos of seven Democrats, six of whom have been investigated and two who have resigned in scandal in the past four years.

"Something STINKS in Albany," the mailer says. Paladino spokesman Michael Caputo told The Associated Press on Thursday that the mailer is scented with a "landfill" odor.

He says the smell will get worse the longer it is exposed, just like Albany.


These are the "serious" people that the Teabaggers believe are going to lead America out of the crisis of it's current economic implosion and and put us back on the road to super power glory.

Matthew Norman: From the US comes a nasty whiff

Wednesday, 15 September 2010


The misfortunes of others being the greatest solace in gloomy, scary times, God bless the United States of America! However alarming the fiscal situation over here, however nerve-jangling the anticipation of the forthcoming Spending Review and its impact of industrial relations, however wretched the prospect of the low level civil unrest that follows the scapegoating of the deprived by the wealthy, glancing across the Atlantic cannot fail to raise the spirits.

Exactly what is unfolding there remains hard to identify even for those better placed by geography, experience and intellect than your columnist. But even at this remove it is apparent that America is suffering some kind of paranoid psychotic episode.....

>
>

.....Watching the Tea Party crush centrist Republicans in race after race regardless of the damage this will do the GOP in November, noting the fanaticism at the rallies headlined by Palin and Beck, and recalling from his own childhood the power of crazed but charismatic rhetoric over a middle class grown poor and confused in Wehrmacht Germany, Noam Chomsky sniffs fascism on the breeze.

If that sounds hysterical, please God that it is. But something dark and hateful is stirring in America, and it seems certain to grow as long as unemployment and poverty persist. On Inauguration Day some 20 months ago it felt almost like a curse not to be American. Today it feels quite a blessing to be British.

If the Brits are starting to get queasy about what's going on here in the states, you just know that there's something both extraordinary and unsettling taking place.

Wow! This Teabagger Christine O'Donnell is crazier than a sack of rabid weasels. Check out the excerpt from this stem-cell research debate she had on O'Reilly's show in 2007:

O'DONNELL: Bill, if we — if we approach this complicated bioethic issue with our heads in the sand, the other end is in the air.

O'REILLY: My head isn't the sand, Christine. I have the biggest head in the world. There isn't enough sand on the beach in Hawaii for my head to be in there.

O'DONNELL:
My point is, we're approaching this issue with the other end in the air.

O'REILLY: No, no, no. Hold it.

O'DONNELL: By their own admission...

O'REILLY:
No.

O'DONNELL: ... these groups admitted that the report that said, "Hey, yay, we cloned a monkey. Now we're using this to start cloning humans." We have to keep...

O'REILLY: Let them admit anything they want. But they won't do that here in the United States unless all craziness is going on.

O'DONNELL: They are — they are doing that here in the United States. American scientific companies are cross-breeding humans and animals and coming up with mice with fully functioning human brains. So they're already into this experiment.


It bears repeating:

O'DONNELL: They are — they are doing that here in the United States. American scientific companies are cross-breeding humans and animals and coming up with mice with fully functioning human brains. So they're already into this experiment.

FUCKING LOL!! Is it just me or does that ridiculous statement make you think someone perhaps had taken too many bong hits and watched way too many Saturday morning cartoons prior to that interview?:




Yet these are the types of lunatic buffoons that the Tea Party asshats are trying to foist upon us all. If this shit doesn't scare you, then all I can say is don't fucking blame me when these crazy bastards take whatever vestiges remain of this country's international credibility, economic power, and democracy and jettison it all in favor of a full blown, theocratic, banana republic system of government.

There will be [more] blood . . .



This is the very real legacy of the hateful rhetoric of Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Bill O'Reilly, AM hate radio and Rupert Murdoch's hand-picked team of lie spewing stormtroopers -- also known as Fox News:

OAKLAND, CA (KGO) -- There is new information about a man charged for a shoot-out with the highway patrol on 580 in Oakland in July. The man says he hoped to start a revolution by killing liberal activists and ABC7 obtained tapes of a jailhouse interview with Byron Williams.

http://abclocal.go.com/kgo/video?id=7670497


It really is just a matter of time before the right wing media screechers have even more innocent blood on their hands. I say "even more" because they already do have innocent blood on their hands:

On July 27, 2008, a politically motivated fatal shooting took place at the Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Church in Knoxville, Tennessee, United States. Motivated by a desire to kill liberals and Democrats, gunman Jim David Adkisson fired a shotgun at members of the congregation during a youth performance of a musical, killing two people and wounding seven others. ...

Adkisson's manifesto stated that he intended to keep shooting until police arrived and expected to be killed by police. Adkisson had a waist satchel with more ammunition, totaling 76 shells of #4 shot. The following books were found in Adkisson's home during a police search:

* Liberalism is a Mental Disorder by radio talk show host Michael Savage

* Let Freedom Ring: Winning the War of Liberty over Liberalism by talk show host Sean Hannity

* The O'Reilly Factor: The Good, the Bad, and the Completely Ridiculous in American Life by television talk show host Bill O'Reilly

In his manifesto, Adkisson also included the Democratic members of the House and Senate, and the 100 People Who Are Screwing Up America of conservative author Bernard Goldberg in his list of wished-for targets.


It was just pure luck that law enforcement intercepted Byron Williams before he had a chance to implement his terrorist attack on the ACLU and The Tides Foundation. But at some point, that luck is going to run out and death and destruction will come at the hands of a fellow American - who by any fair definition of the word - is a terrorist. And my only hope is that those right wing media fuckheads who are egging on the Tim McVeigh wannabes and exhorting them to take matters into their own hands will be held fully accountable when their words lead to violence and the death of innocent Americans.

OMFG [part deux] . . . .

Well, it appears I may have spoken too soon about Christine O'Donnell being the penultimate batshit insane Teabagger candidate. Ladies and gentlemen -- I give you New York Teabagger candidate for Governor - Carl Paladino:





It seems would be Governor Paladino has quite an interesting history of unethical behavior -- the type which nobody would give a shit about if he was applying for a job as a Brooklyn garbage man, but are nothing short of horrific for a candidate for the top executive position of the state of New York. I cannot even fathom a Democrat running for Congress or Governor, having done and said some of the things this jackass has and getting anywhere near being elected to a position of major political power.

Which simply bolsters my contention that the teabaggers are not only batshit insane, they're major league fucking hypocrites.

"Fair and Balanced"? Ummm ... still no.

Of course -- because like I've been screaming at the top of my lungs for years -- Fox is not a legitimate "news" channel nor is it or has it ever been "fair and balanced." For the umpteenth time -- you want me to shut my mouth about Fox -- no problem -- have Rupert Murdoch change their name from Fox News to The GOP Propaganda channel and shit-can the cockamamie "fair and balanced" mantra.

Military Rocks for Christ
From Chris Rodda at Talk TwoAction.org


On May 13, 2010, about eighty soldiers, stationed at Fort Eustis while attending a training course, were punished for opting out of attending one of these Christian concerts. The headliner at this concert was a Christian rock band called BarlowGirl, a band that describes itself as taking “an aggressive, almost warrior-like stance when it comes to spreading the gospel and serving God.”

Any doubt that this was an evangelical Christian event was cleared up by the Army post’s newspaper, the Fort Eustis Wheel, which ran an article after the concert that began:

“Following the Apostle Paul’s message to the Ephesians in the Bible, Christian rock music’s edgy, all-girl band BarlowGirl brought the armor of God to the warriors and families of Fort Eustis during another installment of the Commanding General’s Spiritual Fitness Concert Series May 13 at Jacobs Theater.”

The father of the three Barlow sisters who make up the band was also quoted in the article, saying, “We really believe that to be a Christian in today’s world, you have to be a warrior, and we feel very blessed and privileged that God has given us the tool to deliver His message and arm His army.”


This is the kind of shit that scares me just as much if not more than anything Bin Laden and his box cutter wielding thugs can do to us.

They Are Expendable?? . . .



By Mike Baker
Associated Press Writer / August 31, 2010



RALEIGH, N.C.—The system that automatically awards disability benefits to some veterans because of concerns about Agent Orange seems contrary to efforts to control federal spending, the Republican co-chairman of President Barack Obama's deficit commission said Tuesday.

Former Wyoming Sen. Alan Simpson's comments came a day after The Associated Press reported that diabetes has become the most frequently compensated ailment among Vietnam veterans, even though decades of research has failed to find more than a possible link between the defoliant Agent Orange and diabetes.

"The irony (is) that the veterans who saved this country are now, in a way, not helping us to save the country in this fiscal mess," said Simpson, an Army veteran who was once chairman of the Senate Veterans' Affairs Committee.

Umm - no Mr. Simpson. You are dead fucking wrong. It wasn't Vietnam Veterans who got this country into "this fiscal mess" we're in. It was assholes like you, like George W. Bush and Dick Cheney and 12 out of 14 years of Republican rule of Congress and the Executive branch. And I'll even go so far as to hang a good portion of that mantle of blame around the necks of quite a few cowardly Democrats too just to spread the blame around.

Costly, unpaid for tax cuts that went primarily to the wealthiest of Americans at a time that we were embroiled in two ill-advised wars on two separate fronts followed by an economic collapse brought on by the greed and hubris of the Wall Street thugs and bankers is what got us into "this fiscal mess." For you or anyone else to propose that we burden American Veterans in need of medical care to clean up the shit pile mess left behind by politicians, greedy corporations, and Wall Street con men, by cutting the very benefits they fought and bled for, is one of the most sickeningly offensive things I've heard in a very long time and it infuriates me beyond description.

If Alan Simpson were standing here in front of me right now, I'd tell him to go fuck himself with Dick Cheney's cold, withered, liver-spot covered penis. No -- really I would.

Idiocracy . . .

You know -- I don't deny that most, if not all, of these people believe sincerely in the things that they state in these interviews.

That sincerity in and of itself is not a bad thing and it is not what concerns me.

My problem is with the thought process behind their thinking and the poisonous effect which external influences such as Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Fox News, fundamentalist Christianity, etc., have had on that critical process.

Honestly -- how can you watch this video clip and NOT be of the belief that something is terribly, frighteningly, darkly wrong with this picture?:





The idea of mandating that voters pass a standard IQ and civics test before being allowed to vote doesn't sound so unreasonable after watching something like that. Really it doesn't.

Buy Gold from my Sponsor -- and the Lord will bless thee . . . [snicker]

This is what truly frightens me about the Teabaggers.

Glenn Beck is the most highly regarded individual among Tea Party supporters of the people we tested. He scores an extraordinarily high 75 percent warm rating, 57 percent very warm.

This affinity for Beck came through very clearly in the focus groups. The only news source that participants said they could trust was Fox. Glenn Beck, Bill O’Reilly, and Sean Hannity were cited as people who “are not afraid to tell it like it is” and support their arguments with solid facts. Beck was undoubtedly the hero in these groups. Participants consider him an “educator” (in contrast to the popular Rush Limbaugh who is an “entertainer”) who teaches people history and puts himself at risk because he exposes the truth. In the words of a woman in Ft. Lauderdale, “I would trust my life in his hands.”

Other comments are just as laudatory:
"I like the way he’s trying to get back to the basics of the Constitution of the United States because I think that’s where our government is losing focus. They’re trying to change the Constitution or somehow twist it…"

"He brings out facts… And he actually shows the people saying the things. It’s not like just sound bites. It’s not chopped and really edited. And he is scary because every time I watch the show, which is pretty much every day, my heart feels…and I feel like I want to do something."

"I’m frightened for him… Because of the things that he says. I think that he is stepping on some big toes."

"He really does his research and he really lays it out to you well; a good professor."

I mean really --- come the fuck on! If, after listening to the following clip, you still are of the belief that Glenn Beck IS NOT full of shit and IS NOT just cynically manipulating your fearful, impressionable little brain for fun and personal profit --- well --- I cannot state that I sympathize with you in any way shape or form if the Beckerheads of the world some day worm their way to power and plunge the whole fucking country into a headlong, empire collapsing free for all:





All the more reason for me to believe that this paleolithic, group-think mindset, which is prevalent amongst the Teabagger crowd and that puts someone of Glenn Beck's vapidity and manipulative charlatanism on such a lofty pedestal, is something that needs to be monitored with a healthy measure of suspicious vigilance.
