Coup 2000: What A Difference A Decade Makes

Matthew Norman (the Independent UK):  How did this wastrel ever find his way to the White House? It takes a certain minimal intelligence for the truly dim to have a notion of their own dimness, but this is denied George Bush. He has the self-awareness of a bison. And as if Dubya’s being a war [...]

Brand Obama

Sadly, facts have been anathema to the average American for as long as I’ve been alive. All that matters is that we’re allowed to believe “we’re number one.” No one can compete when it comes to self-delusion and belligerence, and our ignorance would be amusing were it not a threat to every life-form on the [...]

Yes, American enlistees swear an oath in God’s Name. Then again, so do Mafiosi. Nobody outside of that criminal fraternity considers it improper for a Mafia foot soldier to renounce his oath.

Shmemorial Day

Though I lost heart, long ago, and now have absolutely no expectation that Americans will do anything significant to rein in the government, military, and corporations which intend to fully enslave all of humanity, occasionally I am still moved to comment on our disconnect. So-called [self-professed] “liberal” and “progressive” bloggers annoy me the most, for [...]
