Nothing in the past few decades has eroded America’s credibility, its standing in the world, its capacity to go to war, like the war in Iraq. We expended billions upon billions of dollars and thousands of human lives in pursuit of showing off how tough we were, and the result was a disaster.

In the 2008 U.S. presidential campaign, candidates Representatives Ron Paul and Dennis Kucinich, then-Senator Barack Obama (Now President of the United States), Senators Chris Dodd, Hillary Clinton and Mike Gravel were some of the most outspoken critics of the Iraq War. Other than the Pauls, who are right about this like a stopped clock (and wrong about pretty much everything else), and are libertarians, not Republicans, has any Republican ever expressed regret for support Bush and Cheney’s illegal war of aggression? That slimy little weasel Lindsey Graham and John “bomb bomb bomb, bomb bomb Iraq” McCain (or is that John “stupid enough to pick Sara Freakin’ Palin as his running mate” McCain) are saying Putin’s doing his thing because “Obama’s too soft” on … something. Foreign policy, maybe? Whatever, as long as the certifiably insane GOP/Teabagger party isn’t to blame. For a situation that we have no control over…

Keeping Republicans out of the White House, permanently, really does matter.

But frankly, their “base” is so bug-fuck nuts, now, that anyone who could win a TeabaggerOP primary couldn’t win a general election, so we got that going for us, which is nice.

I think about McCain/Palin finishing their second term, and Palin being in line to be the next POTUS and my mind wobbles…

These greedy fuckers are keeping cumstains like Rand(y) Paul and Mike(y) Lee in office almost single-handedly. People gotta stop believing the hateful lies they spew (like, fer example, giving all of our money to 2 extraordinarily wealthy spoiled inherited wealth rich kids is somehow magically going to create jobs in this country).

Honestly, on some days I think these 2 fuckers, all by themselves, are worse for the country than the entire GOP (and the GOP’s idiot supporters).

US the biggest threat to world peace in 2013 – poll

The US has been voted as the most significant threat to world peace in a survey across 68 different countries. Anti-American sentiment was not only recorded in antagonistic countries, but also in many allied NATO partners like Turkey and Greece. A global survey conducted by the Worldwide Independent Network and Gallup at the end of 2013 revealed strong animosity towards the US’s role as the world’s policeman. Citizens across over 60 nations were asked: “Which country do you think is the greatest threat to peace in the world today?”

The US topped the list, with 24 percent of people believing America to be the biggest danger to peace. Pakistan came second, with 8 percent of the vote and was closely followed by China with 6 percent. Afghanistan, Iran, Israel and North Korea came in joint fourth place with 5 percent of the vote.

The threat from the US was rated most highly in the Middle East and North Africa, those areas most recently affected by American military intervention. Moreover, the survey showed that even Americans regard their country as a potential threat with 13 percent of them voting the US could disrupt global status quo. Latin America expressed mixed feelings towards its northerly neighbor, with Peru, Brazil and Argentina all flagging the US as the most dangerous country.

Sounds about right. Using our military to protect the interests of oil companies and the wealthy is never going to win us a bunch of friends, and the GOP threatening to crash the global economy every few months just adds (real) insult to (real) injury. We’ve got to find a way to crash public opinion about all the RW crap Faux Noose (and plenty of others) is selling them.

The filthiest fact is that Congress wants to cut the food benefit to hungry Americans, almost half of them children, so that money can keep flowing to the top.

Link

The ongoing, current class war began under Reagan, who the GOP’s sycophants have nominated for everything from a fifth head on Mt. Rushmore to having his know-nothing head memorialized on a coin. I vomit in my mouth a little whenever I fly in or out of “Reagan National” airport.

It probably began when he pushed “trickle down economics” on us, based on the laughable (and thoroughly disproven) “Laffer Curve”, but a case could be made that it was when he began the ongoing destruction of unions by firing the striking air-traffic controllers. Maybe they’re tied…

“Trickle down”, called “voodoo economics” by the sire of Bush the dim, has been tried twice and it’s failed MISERABLY both times, most recently lending a a helping hand to the worst recession in our nation’s history, by cutting taxes on the wealthy (read “war profiteers” here and you won’t be too far out of line) at the same time Cheney talked his smirking chimp of a boss into launching not one, but two, count ‘em, two unfunded wars. (Aside, I still remember John Thune as a new Senator telling Tim Russert how “easy” it is to keep the budget balanced when fighting two unfunded wars: “Just take them off the books.” This is what passes for GOP “leadership”).

Make no mistake, the war continues to this day. Unless you make something on the order of a Bazillion dollars a year, it’s a war on YOU. And if we don’t work together to fight back, we will lose this war (if it hasn’t already been lost).

Do you remember/know of the Overton Window? It’s time to embrace “wealth redistribution” as what made America great, in the past.

I support a 90% tax rate for individual incomes over $1,000,000.00/yr. Steep inheritance tax on estates over $5,000,000.00, to stop the Walton-like handing down of power (like a monarchy) in this capitalist society.

You should, too.

…when the voters are so mentally deficient?

Poll: Louisiana GOPers Unsure If Katrina Response Was Obama’s Fault

A significant chunk of Louisiana Republicans evidently believe that President Barack Obama is to blame for the poor response to the hurricane that ravaged their state more than three years before he took office.

Honestly, how can “the greatest country in the history of the world”(TM) continue to be synonymous with “America” when the people who elect “our” representatives insist that it is their right to vote based on such stupidity? This is willful stupidity on the scale of the sores board.

…that even conservatives bug-fuck nuts right wingers should be willing acknowledge is that the Federal government can afford to bankrupt anyone it wants to, in addition to using “meta data” to prosecute those who don’t go along with what we now know is a secret agenda.

Only One Big Telecom CEO Refused To Cave To The NSA … And He’s Been In Jail For 4 Years

Nacchio alleged that the government stopped offering the company lucrative contracts after Qwest refused to cooperate with a National Security Agency surveillance program in February 2001.

NO ONE should be OK with this.

Lobby Congress NOW! Repeal the so-called “Patriot Act” and the AUMF!

I was at work, so when she asked for me by name my first question was “may I ask who’s calling?” I’ve been getting a lot of “spam” calls, lately, so I wanted to know who I was talking to before I launched into a profanity laced tirade.

“This is (I don’t remember) from (the Democratic something or other).”

I brightened. “Oh, hi”, I said, adding “Can we make this quick? I’m at work.” If my change in tone didn’t tell her that we have the same goals, I don’t know what else I could have done or said. Clearly, she knew I was someone who had donated before, and wanted me to do so, again.

“I’ll try to be quick”, she assured me, then said something along the lines of “Will you join us in standing on the dead bodies of dead children to support an agenda we had the day BEFORE the (abominable) killings in Newtown?”

I said “I’m sorry, but this is one thing I don’t stand with the Democrats on. We have too many other problems; continuing long term unemployment, the economy, things that affect people every minute of every day.” That’s as near as I can get to a verbatim transcript without a recording.

I added “We’ve had a vote. It’s time to move on.”

She was polite. She said something like “OK” before I said “I’m going to let you go.”

Yeah, I know, who cares, but here’s the interesting part.

An hour or two later I was talking to a co-worker in DC, arguably the most liberal city in America, who thinks he’s more liberal than I am. I told him this same story.

He replied, “I told my parents the same thing last week! They couldn’t believe I felt that way.” He thinks he’s more liberal than I am, and he thinks his parents are more liberal than he is. He agreed with me, BTW.

I can’t read the liberal blogs, any more. I don’t think I’m a baby killer. At least, I’ve never killed one, even by accident. I don’t think I’m the guy who wants boyfriends to murder their girlfriends, the way I’m accused of being on liberal blogs, EVERY DAY. I’m not in love with guns. At least, I’ve never fucked one, or masturbated thinking about one, or even had one in bed with me when I made love to a real live human being, so it’s not a “fetish” for me, as I’m accused of being some kind of pervert, EVERY SINGLE GODDAMNED DAY.

I don’t know the answer. “Liberals” aren’t my allies. I know that. Ron and Rand Paul sure as fuck aren’t my allies (Rand, the little baby, recently came out in favor of using drones to kill liquor store robbers as they leave the store, fercrhissakes.) And it’ll be a cold day in hell when I agree with a Republican on ANYTHING else.

But I know (for sure) that as long as “my side” continues to push this losing issue in spite of all the REAL problems this country faces, I’m going to be on the outside looking in. Virtually EVERYONE hates me for my point of view.

I know this. This isn’t conjecture.

I don’t know who my allies are, any more. Some days I feel like the last sane man in the universe.

And “pro-gun” people will vote, while anti-(drones, chained CPI, “not using the bully pulpit enough”, etc.) people won’t, so we’re move even further to the right on everything else.

P.S.-her politeness spoke volumes to me. Mostly, that she’s getting so many sycophantic responses that toe the “stand on the bodies of children to further the gun-grabbing agenda” party line that I wasn’t worth trying to get a few bucks for “the cause”.

If it’s not obvious, I’m really disgusted with politics, right now.

I don’t really have time to code all 4 sites (twice), so I’m not going to make this site dark, but I support this:

Anonymous Calls For Internet Blackout On April 22 To Protest CISPA

We are going dark on MONDAY April 22nd at 6 AM GMT for 24 hours to protest your illogical and terrorizing bill against the Internet itself. Even with the whole Internet crying out to stop this BILL, the US House of Representatives failed to do so blinded by lobbyist’s money and cum in your eyes. So we will take action ourselves and open your eyes. Every popular/mainstream websites will be black until you, Mr. DronObama promise us to use your VETO power to stop this bill at Senate. Take this as a protest or a warning, as you wish. One thing is for certain, neither you or anyone else in this world can control the Internet, so don’t even try.

That’s starting at 11PM Sunday night, East coast time, so I won’t be posting from 11P tonight until 11P Monday night.

Ya’all are free to do whatever you want.

I’ll respond to whatever needs responding to outside those hours.
