The Republican Obama

Today is Thursday, 31 January 2013.

As I've noted many times, whatever their differences on domestic policy, many Republicans and Democrats become indistinguishable on foreign policy.
Consider the case of ex-CIA officer John C. Kiriakou.  He was just sentenced to 30 months in Federal prison for the "crime" of disclosing the name of a covert officer who was conducting torture (waterboarding).

Nixon and Reagan smile from Hell at Obama.

This type of judicial persecution is appropriate only under dictatorships.

Obama:  which side are you on?

Get Repaired!

Today is Tuesday, 29 January 2013.

"The Boy Scouts [of America] would not, under any circumstances, dictate a position to units, members or parents.  This would mean that there would no longer be any national policy regarding sexual orientation, and the chartered organizations which oversee and deliver Scouting would accept membership and select leaders consistent with each organization's mission, principles, or religious beliefs."

In plain words: the national organization won't tell you to be homophobic bigots, but if you wish to be same, it's your business and not ours.  (Wink wink.)

Or:  the national organization won't tell you to discriminate against niggers, spicks, gooks, etc., but if you wish to do so, it's your business and not ours.  (Wink wink.)

Or:  the national organization won't tell you to hate the Christ-murdering kikes, but if you wish to do so, it's your business and not ours.  (Wink wink.)

The Boy Scouts of America is a nonprofit organization.  If it wishes to promote bigotry, hatred, and violence, well, they seem to be shielded by the First Amendment.  However, let them pay their own way on their highway to Hell.

The South Shall Rise Again!

Today is Saturday, 26 January 2013.

Two Oklahoma Republican legislators have filed bills in the state Legislature, which would "nullify" the Affordable Care Act, and send any U.S. government official who tried to enforce it to prison for up to five years.

"Nullification" is a spurious legal fiction concocted by Senator John C. Calhoun of South Carolina and others in 1832, during a tariff bill tiff.  The doctrine imagines that each of the several states , when it pleases its fancy, is in fact not part of the USA, but a sovereign foreign country, which can therefore hold any Federal law null and void.  The truth is that the independence of the several states ended forever in 1789, when the Constitution took effect, and said states were subsumed into the Union.  Further attempts to extend nullification (and the equal falsehood of "state's rights") were put paid by the Civil War.

One could easily argue that the filing of such bills constitutes an attempt to overthrow the USA, and that the prepetrators should be severely punished.

I can only imagine:  a) these legislators scored 5% on American history tests, b) they know they're pumping bullshit, but it's just willie-waving in anticipation of the next election, or c) they are "barking mad."

They should be nullified.

Damn Yankees!

Today remains Thursday, 24 January 2013.

I meant, of course, "Damn Republican Virginians!"

State Senator Henry L. Marsh III attended the Inauguration.  The Confederate Republicans took the opportunity to slip through gerrymandered election districts, designed to dilute the voting power of Blacks.

After the Civil War, Democrats were divided:  the Northern wing was more liberal and anti-racist, while the Southern wing was reactionary, racist, and plantation-minded.  Then in 1964, Lyndon Johnson broke the power of Southern Democrats, and the Republican Party was captured by the reactionary, plantation-minded Barry Goldwater.  And so have the Republicans remained since.

It is said that consistency is the hobgoblin of small minds.  In the works of Plantation Republicans, consistency is pure evil.

(For more:  today's The New York Times, "Redistricting in Virginia Hurts Blacks, Democrats Say" [a typical wishy-washy headline] by Trip Gabriel.)
Perversion at the American Family Association

Today is Thursday, 24 January 2013.

The Director of Issues Analysis at the American Family Association, Bryan Fischer, condemns homosexuality.

The Director of Issues Analysis at the American Family Association, Bryan Fischer, condemns homosexuality.

"Sodomy, the kind of sexual activity homosexuals engage in, that was a felony offence in America, for the first 200 years plus of our existence."

The enslavement, murder, and rape of Blacks by whites was widely accepted as god-given for the first 74 years of our American existence. 

How many Black slaves to own, murder, and rape, does Bryan-boy wish to own?

Today remains Tuesday, 22 January 2013.

Today is the 40th anniversary of the decision in Roe v. Wade.

The essence of Roe:  in the case of choice, women's reproductive systems do not belong to the State, nor by implication to various "religious" or "philosophical" fractions.

(It's instructive of the male sexual fascism endemic to this country, that no court has ever even contemplated that such a decision should be necessary for male reproductive systems.)

To put it crudely, rejection of Roe means that women's crotches belong to the State, and therefore women should be required to be, body and soul, slaves of the male fascist State.

This must be absolutely rejected.


Today is Tuesday, 22 January 2013.

The nerve of Obama. Makes an Inaugural address proclaiming his goals, not those of the Republican Party.  Does he think he beat Mitt Romney or something?  Doesn't he know, "to the loser belong the spoils, if the loser is a Republican"?

Uppity, uppity, uppity.

Lance the Boil

Today is Saturday, 19 January 2013.

"Some will rob you with a six-gun, and some with a fountain pen."  (Woody Guthrie)

Lance Armstrong chose a bicycle.

The Lancer had no discernible skills other than riding a bicycle fast, but not noticeably faster than others.  However, he wanted to be rich.  Filthy wealthy.

So, the Lancer created a criminal conspiracy to enhance his performance with drugs, thus cheating others of the trophies, trophy monies, and endor$ement deal$ which rightfully belonging to others.

Now, the Lancer's peddling false remorse for sympathy.  That he donated millions to charity is immaterial, merely tax-deductible.

The Lancer should be thrown out on the street, naked and homeless and penniless, with nothing to his name but his diseased ego, and an empty coffee cup for begging.

We're Number One!

Today remains Wednesday, 16 January 2013.

"A Trail of Bullet Casings Leads From Africa's Wars Back to Iran" screams the front-page, above-the-fold headline in The New York Times of Saturday last.  (article by C.J. Chivers)

Somehow forgets to mention that the world's largest arms dealer is ...the USA!

We're Number One!  (In exporting death.)
Targeting the First Daughters

Today remains Wednesday, 16 January 2013.

Yesterday, the NRA again graced the airwaves with filth.

In a new ad, the Big Swingin' Members of the NRA violated the First Daughters. 

"Are the president's kids more important than yours?  Then why is he so skeptical about putting armed security in our schools when his kids are protected by armed guards at their schools?"

Um ... just a guess ... because the First Daughters are known to be under active threat from people who own guns, courtesy of the NRA?

NRA subtext:  let the little colored bitches fend for themselves.
My Apologies

Today is Wednesday, 16 January 2013.

Thanks to some kind of AT%T snafu, I haven't been receiving comments.  So, until I resolve this, I'll be reading MoB several times a day to see responses.

My apologies.  I'm always interested in your thoughts, whether I agree with them or not.

Why Cain Really Slew Able

Today is Sunday, 13 January 2013.

Seems that Cain, after a hard day's work farming, was staying up all night, every night, playing the then-hot video game, Grand Theft Donkey.  Gorging on the video violence got Cain so stoked, that he invited his brother to take a walk.  And, when they reached the fields, Cain rose up against his brother Able and slew him.

Before bloody mass purges, Roman emperors regularly watched episodes of I, Claudius.

Einstein was inspired to invent "E=mc squared" after drowning himself in The Godfather Trilogy.

Before the Great Purges, Stalin burned himself out watching Hollywood gangster movies, particularly those including James Cagney.

The Holocaust was the result of Hitler's mad distaste for the sexually-licentious films of the Jewess, Mae West.

The list could go on and on.


As have been all mighty nations, the USA was and is a great proponent of ultra-violence, from the attempted extermination of Native Americans, through Hiroshima, Nagasaki, Vietnam, and beyond.

To divert the responsibility and blame for Columbine, Newtown, and etc., to video games, movies, and televised news is absurd and evil.

As H. Rap Brown observed, "Violence is as American as cherry pie."

Spit in God's Face?

Today is Thursday, 10 January 2013.

Some ten years ago, when the product of choice being sold by "evangelist" Louie Giglio was homophobic hatred, he was fond of broadcasting Leviticus 19.13: "If a man lies with a man as he would with a woman, it is an abomination.  Both shall be executed."

Yet I can find no indication anywhere on the InterWeb that Giglio obeyed what he claimed that God had ordered him to do.

Why did he refuse to honour what he claimed was the will of God, and, for all intents and purposes, spit in God's face?

Cowardice?  Willed disobedience?  Cash is cash?  Or was he "simply" dishonouring God by attributing a lie to Him?

I report, you decide.

Whether Giglio actually meant to incite hatred and encourage violence, yea, murder of homosexuals, or was "simply" out to make $$$, the Inauguration is well rid of him. I suggest that Obama's team do a better job of vetting.

A Spectre Is Haunting...

Today is Saturday, 5 January 2013.
One of the most important factors in the so-called "Immigration Debate" is, as it were, the unmentioned and ignored 800-pound gorilla in the room:  the bad consciences haunting many white folks.

America was founded on the hope of genocide, of the complete extermination of Native Americans.  Honkies were forced, through lack of sufficient technologies, to settle for ethnic cleansing sufficient to conquer.

Then kidnapping of Blacks for slavery: meaning mass murder, mass theft, mass rape, and mass pedophilia.

Then we have "kikes", and the filthy, stupid, and perpetually-drunken Irish and Italian Papists.  Then, the "gooks" (from "goo-goos") and "slopes" of the conquest of the Philippines.

You get the idea.

Come clean, honkies: you really want to let them all in, and exploit them all to death.

"It's a good thing."

Take Out the Trash

Today is Thursday, 3 January 2013.
The New York Post called it “Hillary Clinton’s Head Fake.”
Former US UN spokesman Richard “I’m soooo clever” Grenell twitted:  “Help!  I’ve fallen and I can’t testify about Benghazi!”
Extreme-right Fox "News" ("All distortion, all the time") shill Charles Krauthammer said Clinton had “acute Benghazi allergy".

Disgraced ex-Congressman Allen West said:  "I'm not a doctor --- but it seems as though the Secretary of State has come down with a case of Benghazi flu."
The Museum of the Bourgeois awards each and all their ilk a complimentary fatal blood clot.  No charge.  Please use sooner rather than later.

In Words of One Syllable or Less

Today is Tuesday, 1 January 2013.
Personally, I find it nearly impossible to believe that a majority of House Republicans believe the garbage they push concerning the national debt.
In case I’m wrong, I’ll use words of one syllable or less to explain it to them; perhaps their mommies can interpret.
Imagine family with one child, and an average middle-middle class income.  Imagine that junior owes a friend $10, which is all he owes anyone at the moment.  So, his equivalent of the national debt is $10.  Junior’s parents owe (mortgage, car payments, credit cards, etc.) $150,000.  Therefore, the debt of junior’s parents exceeds his by a factor of 15,000 times.
The parental debt exceeds the child’s debt by an enormous order of magnitude.  What makes this debt sustainable for the parents is access to future resources with which to pay it off, which the child doesn’t have.
The current US national debt is just short of $1.5 trillion.  A truly humongous order of magnitude greater than that of our imaginary family.
The crucial difference is that national governments have resources available beyond anything available to a family, no matter how rich it is.  For one thing, nation-states such as the US can fund deficit spending though the sales of government bonds.  For another, nation-states print money.  This can be abused, but… when foreign nations and nationals are willing to buy US bonds with a negative interest rate?  (When was the last time someone PAID YOU, to grant them the privilege of loaning you money?)
The Markets Have Spoken, and you House Repubs always claim that markets are the final arbiter.  Listen!
Why do you hate the American people so much, to throw them off the financial cliff?  (The latter would probably not be as bad as these Repubs claim, but, were it so, they’d want to be throwing anyway.)
Let the House Republicans be cursed.  May the plagues descend upon them.
