More than I had imagined….

In a previous post, I opined that a few major reasons for our expanding economic disaster, other than those which have been brought on by the constant bumbling of our moron president, are happening off camera, so that our unseen government could work to close off the entitlement programs that they are not able to touch otherwise because of public support. For example, should the budget be pissed away on an endless war in West Bumfucistan, or stuffed into the pockets of friends of, let’s say the (Bush Crime) family, well then, there’s just nothing available for all of those needy bastards, piss on them……

The trickle down theory made simple:

It’s just how gravity works, now do you get it? 
Some of the programs that they had been unable to get shut down in spite of years of trying include Social Security, Head Start Education, Food Stamps, Medicare (which Ronald Reagan saw as pure socialism), etc, etc. This is the sort of stuff that the mega rich have no need for and don’t want others to get, they feel that you can’t raise yourself higher than the crowd without pushing others down. Also, when you are able to keep the poor undereducated and in constant debt from medical bills and other financial trauma, then you can jerk them around forever. Or until they learn about the revolutions in France and Russia.

Well, another cause that I had completely overlooked has now become obvious to me. If they’re able to break the budgets of the individual states, there will then be a huge gain in the controls that can be placed by the feds on problematic (for the federal government) state level issues like medical marijuana use, equal voting requirements, worker safety, etc…. this done by using the threat of removal of federal funds from states that go against the fed’s grain on such issues. And the states have an almost uniform budget crunch going on now, what with the loss of taxes because of the economy. An infinite loop if you will.

Yep, this another work in progress, with more to be added soon. So, stop by a little later to read the thrilling non-conclusion to a problem that isn’t going away in our lifetime.

Here’s a link for this page should you like to forward it to either someone you care about, or perhaps someone you’d like to piss off, whichever one happens to apply:

I have some good / bad / worse news for you!

The good news?

You will not be going to serve in Iraq.

The bad?

You’ve been assigned to duty as a motorcycle officer in the next Bush motorcade.

The worse news?

You and your motorcycle are going to Iraq, and Condoleezza Rice will be riding on the back as you shuttle her around on her next mission seeking peace in a place that has never seen it before!

Going to need new underwear?

I’d be looking into Kevlar with a Depends liner.

News update

Just hot off the press, er.. make that fresh off the ‘net!

Another rat announces that he’s about to jump off the sinking ship of state.

The living Pillsbury dough boy, that walking waterbed known as Karl Rove, has announced that he’s leaving his un-elected office soon. Is this because he’s been outed?

Or maybe because he needs to spend some more time with his family? Or with his lawyer?

Here’s an advance question for his eventual (couldn’t be a day too soon for me) funeral:
Will he be buried face down so his friends will recognize him?

Added material early 8-15-07: Showing that Turdblossom will always be his butt boy, good ol’ W had this outpouring of emotion (thanks to Reuters.ca):

Bush, before heading with his friend of 34 years to start a two-week Texas vacation, said, “We’re still going to be friends … I’ll be on the road behind you here in a little bit.”

“On the road behind you” indeed.

Would that friend be on the Hershey Highway by chance?

Is Karl going to reacharound behind himself from now on?

All these questions and more to be dealt with in the near future.

4-25-07: A Day That Lives In Infamy, Like The Rest.

In a news report today, Gen. David H. Petraeus (it’s sort of a coincidence, but it rhymes with Betray Us), the commander in Iraq, still insists that everything is O.K. and the war effort is going well for us there. Somehow, nearly 20 percent of the population of America will continue to support the commander in chimp in whatever he says, goose stepping their way to 2008. I’m starting to lose hope of seeing Dubya frog marched out of the White House along with his partner, blood clot boy.

warcriminals

Marching in that same conga line, Republican Senator John McCain has formally launched his next US presidential campaign to nowhere. Long ago, I had some respect for him as a former prisoner of war who made it through several tough years, now I view him as either an updated “Manchurian Candidate” that has had his implanted orders start taking effect, or just another burnout political whore who felt the need to embrace the christian right wing and become the new leader of the Dubya base idiots. Either way, I wish him well and fast travel on his way to oblivion.

Still blooming in the news, our war heroes are shown to be just humans with slanted or fabricated news coverage made up to take the attention away from what a terrible decision it was to launch this war based on lies. Pat Tillman and Jessica Lynch are (so far) the featured pawns in this game, it’s long been known that Tillman was killed by friendly fire with the details obscured by fellow Rangers that were ordered to lie, the true story in the news today as his brother faced the press. And Lynch, caught up in a cover-up where the true story was whitewashed to hide what really happened, is finally trying to get the real story told.

Dick'sfingers

Sniff my fingers and you’ll find which one controls “W”

As the truth of these and other Bushwar problems continue to surface, I have to wonder if we will ever find out what keeps our resident (I still can’t call him president) in the very white house from being impeached. If nothing else, the videos shown today of his frantic dancing, if you will give him the benefit of the doubt as to what was going on, on a stage where with a lot of spastic movement it seems that he was trying to drum his way out of trouble, just off screen Laura glances at him with her resolution fading by the moment.

To those that live in the rest of the world, try to understand that most of us here in the U.S. are truly sorry. You have no idea exactly how very very sorry, but please forgive us for the next few years. I just hope that we can make it until then.

And, so it goes………..

Dubya Tee Eff???

At the risk of being called a racist and losing my radio show…. Hey, wait, I don’t have a radio show to lose, so no worries. Is anyone else catching the action that’s going on to keep the news occupied with anything other than what the powers that be are doing, in the middle East for example?
News flash: Don Imus is an asshole. He always was, this is not late breaking news to most people that have listened to his screed over the years, but now he’s the attention magnet. What he said was not nice to African Americans or woman, but it’s what he said, which I think is covered under Freedom Of Speech, if that’s still in what’s left of the Constitution of the USA. Now every wannabe asshole feels free to blow it way out of proportion so that they can grab their 15 minutes of fame. Sorry Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, somehow you became the unrequested speakers for blacks everywhere, take your problematic religion, and all of the problems it causes, somewhere else.

My take is simple, get over it, walk it off. There’ve been many far more terrible things said, and there will be even more in the future, stop letting words that people say drive everything, punish the people that do actual deeds. And by the way, Stevie Wonder had used most of that that reviled term in the lyrics of one of his songs that I think was about Duke Ellington, Count Basie, or some other ’30’s, ’40’s or ’50’s big band singer (sorry to not have more information, just not my musical interest), the line he sang went something like: “When I was a Nappy headed little boy…..”, and the term “Hoe’s” has for a long time been a part of comedy bits and rap / hip-hop lyrics that are used every day without notice.

And the Duke lacrosse team has been found not guilty after almost a year. They were tried in the press with, again, the same screaming Harpies looking for blood from some one, for something that now has been shown to have never happened. This, along with Mr. Blockhead and his Anna Nicole baby sure made good press though, it certainly took attention away from that little charming Latino, Alberto Gonzales. And those missing +/- 5 million eMails. And that cute butterball Rove. And the ongoing loss of civilian life around the world. And……. fill in the blank.

Today, we have to deal with a pile of Terrible news about the shootings in Virginia. Yes, this deserves some column inches in the paper for a day or so, and also some time on the airwaves as well. And so it goes, let’s move on and try to not make it anything but what it is, a nutcase went on a shooting spree and some people are dead. More Americans in the military die in Iraq / Afghanistan, Bumfuckistan, wherever in that part of the world every month to protect American Oil interests. Well over 3,000 so far, where’s the outcry?

Locally, a Los Angeles t.v. news show spent a lot of time reflecting on how something similar, but on a somewhat smaller scale, happened on a campus near here 31 years ago, and then the newsreader spent more time interviewing people at that school, most of whom were not even born at the time it occured, for their opinions on something that happened a continent away. The interesting thing now will be to see if “W”, in all his weepy sorrow that he expressed at the service in Virginia today, will now have said anything about making it even just a little more difficult for people to buy guns. What do you think?

A Non-Kosher / Halal Stop To Islamic Suicide Bombings?

A while ago I was reading one of the always brilliant and usually pee-in-your-pants funny editions of the Dilbert blog created by Scott Adams, and in that one he wrote about the feeding of the remains of murder victims to pigs done by lazy killers that didn’t want to have to clean up the blood, transport the body, dig the holes, etc….

Cleanup on aisle 3? I got you covered!!!

Well hey, if someone were to take the blown up remains of these suicide bombers and feed that mess to the hogs, and also shoot a video of the whole deal from the scrape up start to the flatulent finish, I’m thinking that there would be an immediate end to all of the ongoing martyr creation once it were to air on Al Jazzera.

Are we at aisle 3 yet?

Just how many of those 72 virgins do you suppose would still give a warm welcome to what’s been transformed into a steaming pile of hog shit to spend eternity with it?

Forget about those other 71 babes, I promise it’s just you and me

Would Allah put out his hand (even his left one?) to shake the non-halal hands or whatever other parts that may have survived the blast, once they’ve passed through several linear meters of menudo?

Do Allah’s messengers fly coach?
