Welcome back, and……….

Yeah, me neither.

The true pity is that almost all of our high end politicians are or were lawyers, and incarceration is a byproduct of many of these people plying their trade (I know, plying sounds like “Lying”, sort of like how “Lawyers” sounds like “Liars”).

Compare and Contrast….

Has anyone else noticed that the price of gas as Bush is leaving office is nearing the price it was when he was appointed (some may say anointed) president in 2000?

It seems he will leave office with at least that one factor of American life returned to the way it was when he started, everything else has more or less gone down the toilet. 

Good riddance to him and his nuclear and extended crime family, and may he someday learn to pronounce nuclear.

McCain Palin 2008

Buh Bye to all of Y’all in Southern America!!!!!

Sarah, whatever else happens, don’t let the swinging “Lower 48’s” hit you in the ass on your way out.

And please stop by Nebraska on your trip back home ya know, have a look around to see if you maybe forgot that you dumped off Trig there by, ya know what I mean, “accident”, Ya Bitch ya.  Sorry, maybe that should have been “You Betcha”.

From all us “Outsiders“, as you Alaskan welfare cheats like to call the taxpayers in “Real America” that send you your welfare checks each month, be sure to enjoy that bridge to nowhere of yours, while you’re so busy driving on the road to nowhere.

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:

On Top of Hillary? Baby it’s cold up there…..

Hold on, that frost bitten place I was thinking of is actually Mt. Everest, and Edmund Hillary was the name of one of the first white climbers. Or something like that.

It’s just a joke, don’t start Tenzing up about it, Norgay.

Sorry, sometimes these puns write themselves.

In the primaries, the only thing Hillary Clinton ever had working in her favor was the possession a vagina, the one that got her votes from some democrats that had wanted a change and saw it only being possible with a woman in office. 

That vagina is all that Hillary had in common with other women, being the ultimate political hack she is she pushed it around (so to speak). Who else would have lived with world wide humiliation in exchange for getting a shot at the white house.

Hillary also received votes from DINOS, democrats in name only. Joe Lieberman (on the right in the photo above) was one of those that just wanted to screw up the democratic party. A true and detailed story of how that walking bag of crap was able to go from a co-star role on “Alf” all the way up to the V.P. slot on the democratic ticket, where he was able to sink Al Gore, would sure make a great book.

Well, seen a photo of Max Wright and Joe Lieberman in the same room? 

She also got a huge lift from true republicans that crossed party lines to vote in the democratic primary where they could. These rethuglicans are beyond deathly afraid that Obama will get elected, and they saw this as a chance to derail him during the primary election without even saying the republican election time mantra of “9-11”

If they had done the same to Bill Clinton, one might call it cock blocking.

Hey, I just did.

So now, it seems to me that Hillary’s got to be put out to pasture before doing any more damage, but who will put the bell on that vagina, errr… let’s make that on any one of her necks?

Republicans find a new use for gays…

No, I’m not talking about toe tapping meetings in restrooms, I’m talking about getting out the vote.

There’s nothing like a hot button issue launched just before the elections to rouse the knuckle dragging hard drinking gun toting unemployed pin headed bottom feeders to the voting booth, Herr Karl Rove taught them that simple truth years ago.

Cogito non, Ergo Bush…

Now, we find that a republican judge in California will allow (some might say drag) the gay folk “out” to get married, creating a perfect storm that will bring out the hesitant right wing old farts that would otherwise skip this election, as most are not happy to hold their collective noses and vote for John McFlipflop, even out there in those Seizure World retirement homes.

All this is, of course, just the precursor for the real hit, the infamous “October Surprise” that Bush has hinted that the country should be getting ready for during past few days.

Just my take, as always double your money back if not satisfied……

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.

The Boogieman Returneth

Taking a brief break from my crapping on some of the weasel like talent that has crapped on me and so many others over the years, has anyone else become aware of the very strong drumbeat that is going on now, pushing a return to the cold war?

Perhaps the coming end of the Bush and Putin runs of power, who I think are two sides of the same coin, has created a need to have someone to flaunt as a boogie man, a current and present danger, maybe even enough to prevent elections that have very predictable results? Google “Anti-missile”, “SDI”, or “Star Wars like missile shield” and see what’s happening of note.

Every day it seems that there is some sort of a story or two on the ‘net about some (Hang on Donald with the comb over, your turn is coming) trumped up event or situation from our side or theirs (does anyone know the name of the Russian Karl Rove?), moving both of our countries away from a peaceful detent, and revving up the military industrial complex monster machine once again.

And one more time, we the Sheeple are asked to just bend over and grab our ankles.

I’m just asking………

Hey, did you hear this?

Next week I’m doing an interactive video about speeding up the process within a company. The imaginary company created to use as an example is a call center for tech advice for cameras, but it could be anything.

In real life, it most likely would be located somewhere in India, but that’s another story.

The interesting part is what I’ve learned from reading the script for this project, that while I always thought I was listening to what the other person was saying, what I was really doing was waiting for my turn to speak and seem brilliant, not actually paying much attention to the content of what was spoken.

I had learned this lesson years ago when I took a coaching course from a guy named Paul Roth at his Coaching Exchange in Westwood, CA. The Coaching Exchange’s logo is CEX, which a Russian speaking person would pronounce as SEX, but that’s a story for another day. As I learned,Paul is a true genius, a guy who for whatever reason wanted to help people at the expense of his own financial betterment. This concept was one of the best things I got out of the class, and also one of the first things I forgot about as I moved on with my life. So it goes.

What I found was that you can’t use information that is given to you if you choose not to really listen to it. You need to take in each word and the examine the context of it as it’s given to you.

Try this: The next time someone speaks to you on a subject you know nothing about, really try and see if you can come away with a new feeling about that subject, or maybe take something from the talk and use it in an unrelated area of your life. Once you do this, you may find that an answer to something that you have had on your mind for a while will appear in the conversation, and this is true even if when it’s about an unrelated subject.

You have questions, others have answers, it’s just a matter of matching them up.

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………..
