Random Thoughts


Time to catch up on the various events. Concerning the occupation. The radical right has converted to the things that use to work, proving again that they have no ability to think out of the box. It's 24/7 fear and loathing. How many people have now figured out that terror attacks will not destroy us any more than McVeigh or the twin towers. Yet they pull out the old fear chestnut again. They quickly condemned John Edwards for saying that the GWOT was little more than a bumper sticker and not a strategy. Notice they didn't take the time to explain why Edwards was wrong. They just gave a response similar to "you all want to die" or "you don't understand the threat we are facing". The radical right refuses to understand or accept the fact that their plan, if their is one, has been a failure of historic proportions. They fail to understand or accept the fact that someone else may have a different way to go about it. If you are against them or their loser tactics they just puff their chests and say you don't get it or you want us all to die. They pretend or honestly believe that they are far more aware of what is happening than their political opponents and that is why you should only trust them. If you tell them about your plans or ideas they argue for a bit and the next day they are back to saying nobody else has a plan. The right will justify their fear with the thought that the bad guys may get ahold of a nuclear weapon. If that is their fear it would be far smarter and far less deadly to spend the big portion of that 500b we have spent on gathering up loose nukes. An idea proffered by many a Democrat for some time now. If they are going to follow us wherever we go maybe we should go someplace closer to us and far more distant from them so they would have to spend big money shipping arms and equipment. We are making it easy for them and hard for us right now. Of course then we would have to beef up our security at home and they don't seem to want to focus on that unless its about stopping Mexicans. We need a national emergency plan for alternative energy not in ten year but RIGHT NOW, let me repeat that, RIGHT NOW. A national effort combining government, business, media, citizens, conservation et al. We need to be able to say screw you and your oil too. Oh wait, nobody has a plan but them so I had better quit having one.

As noted above, the attorneys scandal is an attempt to steal the election and more proof of lackeys and sycophants, not the best person for the job, proliferating our government. At the top of each agency is someone who is opposed to anything the agency does. They then fill it with yes people. How can a person who doesn't believe in what their agency does do anything but tear it to the ground. Which is exactly their goal. Remember these are the people that hated government and thought it had far too much power before 2000. While they have not succeeded in giving us less expensive or less government and government intrusion in our lives they have certainly succeeded in making it ineffective and the slave of big business.

I honestly have no where near enough information to evaluate the immigration bill. Actually much of congress is in the same boat at this time. Surprise, Surprise, the only ones who seem to know it all is Rushs Robots and Hattitys horseshitters. There is no way, but they puff their chest and pretend and the sheeple eat it up without a thought. I am opposed to unconditional amnesty and opposed to letting the law breakers be allowed in before people that have been following the law and waiting. I'm for making the illegals go back and take their place in line. I am for making far fewer people eligible. If it appears my position more closely matches that of the Republicans, you are right. Occasionally strange things happen. Unfortunately I think the whys between me and the Republicans are quite different. Sorry wingnuts but it appears to me you are doing it in large measure because of racism. Why do I think this? Look at how the rank and file on conservative blogs argue it. The illegals commit crimes, the illegals are dangerous(more fearmongering) and on and on. While it may be true that they are involved in crimes why must they use that as their primary point? Because they are racists. They almost as an afterthought talk about jobs for Americans. How unamerican is it to say "jobs Americans won't do"? I can think of few things more insulting. Even the illegals would be doing it for free if the big business oligarchy could find a way to make it happen. Americans will gladly do, and use to do, most of those jobs but they refuse to be a slave or get screwed by big business. Now big business has found a way to say f you to the American worker. We all know they are just a bunch of lazy bastards on welfare, right? Talk about hating America!

Well, that is enough for now. I am sure you guys can comment on this. Go for it.

Baa baa Bush sheep, have you any brains?...guess not!
Why the algebra/geometry? Don'tcha understand that neither is applicable to most things in REAL life? LOL
Yeah yeah, we needed an alternative energy plan years and years ago but the oil companies won't make any money off that-right? The guest worker program is just so they can legally drive down wages instead of illegally hiring illegals to do work Americans CAN'T get hired for cuz they won't work for slave wages under horrible conditions. The Cheney/Bush Badministration are backed by racists even if it does have Condi, Gonzales, etc. working for it.
The Rovemonster is a master at propaganda like Goering was. It's getting more like "1984" all the time. The mainstream media is complicit and whenever I see tvs in public places tuned into the news it's almost always Faux News. Local bookstores in my area prominently display books by Coulter (gag), Hannity, Limbaugh, etc. and never books by Ivins, Hightower, or God forbid Michael Moore.
Carter's book, "Our Endangered Values" ought to be displayed in every library and bookstore in the country. It ought to be read on tv/radio, too. I just read the chapter on our endangered civil liberties, The UNPatriotic Act, and prisoner abuse. Among other things:
The Red Cross visited 6 out of 25 US prisons and registered 107 detainees under the age of 18, some as young as 8 yrs old. Children are being tortured as well as adults. It is estimated that 70-90% of the detainees held at Abu Ghraib were held by mistake. Many people are imprisoned without access to counsel, without being charged, and with no evidence against them for long periods of time just because they happen to be Muslim and were unlucky enough to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. On top of it all, we are shipping many prisoners to Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, etc. where torture is allowed. Some prisoners have had their arms partially boiled. Two prisoners were boiled to death. Even if they were terrorists, which I doubt, this is inhuman. It's demonic in fact and we are Americans, dam* it. Americans are supposed to be above this. We are supposed to defend the helpless and stop these kind of attrocities-right?
But not since Cheney, etc. who have no use for the Geneva Convention Accords-right?
Bush, Gonzales, and Rumsfeld need to be impeached and tried for war crimes right alongside Cheney. Duhbya is a dim bulb but not that dim. If you look at his history of
DWIs, crooked business deals, and even being AWOL from TANG he has symptoms of anti-social personality disorder. I think Bush probably has some human feelings, but I don't think Cheney does. I think he just might be a sociopath like Amon Goeth, Mengele, and all the other Nazis who tortured Jews, etc. and committed genocide. He is purely evil as far as I am concerned. What's next for America, after they suspend elections, that is? Maybe the camps for Muslims, gays, feminists, abortionists and the other folks Pat Robertson says are partially responsible for 9/11. Also, everyone else that dares to disagree with Cheney and Company-right? Scary scary thought.

I'm personally glad for the pics. Brightens up the place. We all need some off-the-wall humor once in a while.

It's nice to lighten up here and there, rather than just inundate with the heavies consistently. When being inundated with the heavies all the time, one starts feeling the weight big time. It's why I had quit posting here for so long. I just got tired of it all. From both sides.

Besides, it's something different for once here.
