Tell the children the truth: Corporate greed trumps their quality of life

Digby over at Hullabaloo pretty much sums it up in regard to the Gulf oil spill catastrophe.

This is all good for the wingnuts who care more about their fucking Hummers than they do about wildlife anyway. And for BP it's perfect: if the fish and the animals can just die quietly in the marshes and sink to the bottom of the ocean it's much better for their PR strategy.

...A few years back the snotty Villager question of the day was "what do we tell the children?" about oral sex during the Monica Lewinsky scandal. It turned out that the kids either already new or didn't really need any details.

This, I think is different. What are people telling their kids?

Tell your children the truth.

Teabagger Genesis . . . The Most Sordid Story Ever Told . . .

Fascinating and depressing mini-documentary.

Max Blumenthal goes inside the Tea Party from Ram Bam on Vimeo.

These hard core Teabaggers truly are pathetically out of their fucking minds. There really is no kinder, gentler way to put it.

It's almost as if every vestige of every memory in their tiny lizard brains of the years 2000 - 2008 has been completely erased by some magic, CTRL+ALT+DEL function. They have no memories whatsoever of who it was that controlled all three branches of the U.S. government for 6 of those 8 years (care to guess?) and therefore who the fuck it was that indisputably got America to this point of national economic ruin and foreign policy folly.

With that single, uncomplicated observation in mind, I cannot help but think therefore, that the majority of these Teabagging whiners are simply nothing more than sad, hateful, fearful, ignorant putzes who are just royally pissed that the Darkie beat the kindly old white guy and his white Barbie doll, fundamentalist Christian sidekick and is now living with his Darkie family in the "White" House.

I would like for me to be definitively proven wrong in that thinking, but somehow I doubt that will occur.


The Hezbollahs are coming!! The Hezbollahs are coming!! AHHHHHHHHHH !!!!!!

Rep. Sue Myrick (R-NC) presses DHS Secretary Napolitano for more surveillance of Hezbollah operations along the US Mexico border.

Hezbollah?? Invading the U.S. from Mexico?? Really? Love how all of Myrick's sources are preceded by indeterminate adjectives -- "some former officials", "some authorities", "many experts" . . . blah, blah, blah.

This loon Myrick truly is representative of the deranged Teabagger types that now own and control the GOP lock, stock and barrel.


The Hanniturd . . . stringing the rubes along by their nose rings

Sean Hannity is to "news" and "journalism" what a side order of maggot infested dog shit would be on a magnificently prepared plate of Filet Mignon from a 4 star dining establishment.

Sean Hannity deceptively edited comments President Obama made during a 2007 Senate hearing to falsely accuse Obama of "attacking General [David] Petraeus." In fact, in comments cropped out of the video, Obama made clear his criticism was directed at President Bush and was "not a criticism" of Petraeus.

Just saying . . .

No - we are not No. 1 . . . period

(Reuters) - Americans spend twice as much as residents of other developed countries on healthcare, but get lower quality, less efficiency and have the least equitable system, according to a report released on Wednesday.

Yet to hear the Teabaggers and the know nothing bobble heads on Fox News and AM hate radio tell it - America has the greatest health care system on the face of the planet and nobody else comes near our greatness.

I've stated it before, but it's worth repeating -- it truly is an arduous task debating people who are so willfully and childishly ignorant of the truth and who have no qualms about just outright lying to advance their destructive agendas.

America's two-tiered justice system hard at work . . .

Some things just never change, that's just the way it is.

Steal a loaf of bread - go straight to jail - do not pass GO!, do not collect $200.

Steal millions and ruin the lives of many, eh - not so bad. Take your slap on the wrist and just bide your time until your black robed saviors come to the rescue and set you free amongst the "little people" to plunder once again.

What a fucked up world we live in.


Why do Republicans hate American workers?

REPUBLICANS JUST DON'T LIKE THE UNEMPLOYED, CONT'D.... The evidence continues to pile up to suggest Republican lawmakers and candidates actively dislike -- on a personal level -- those who've lost their jobs in the recession.... This fits into a larger pattern for the party. One GOP congressman recently compared the unemployed to "hobos." In the House, GOP lawmakers tried to eliminate a successful jobs program. Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) actually started pushing a measure to require the unemployed to take mandatory drug tests in exchange for benefits. Kentucky's Rand Paul wants the jobless to quit their bellyaching and "get back to work."

You know what I would love to see? I'd give my right arm to see Orrin Hatch, Rand Paul and the rest of these gutless GOP assholes go to Evansville, Indiana, stand outside the Whirlpool plant that is (but will no longer be) the lifeblood of that American city and call these people "hobos" and "bellyachers" and "drug addicts." Then in my dream of dreams, those Whirlpool workers who have been told the livelihoods and lives of they and their families are being tossed aside for corporate greed would grab the GOP pricks in mob form, dunk them in vats of hot, bubbly tar, toss them onto a pile of chicken feathers, hog tie them to a railroad tie and summarily escort them to the city limits and dump their mean-spirited, worthless prick asses in an abandoned coal pit.

I can dream, can't I??
