Being Busy Does Not Excuse Me From Giving A Shout Out

If for some fucking reason you have not been clicking that little mouse ya have on Jill's place, Y'all ain't quite paying attention.

Get ya a beer, a cheap cut of meat off the grill and go read what she has to say.

There is a reason the lady has over one million page views and I am so indebted to her for linking to my little rant hole so many times I can't count, it's a a serious piece from someone who is right in the middle of the slaughter of the Middle Class and actually see's what the fuck is happening, that I want every fucking person with a Blog to go read it and anyone who doesn't have a fucking Blog to tell every one they know by mouth about it.
Have a close up of the dying of Middle America and go ahead and vote for some stupid fucking Teabagger.

This is one tiny little snip of a very well put piece, very well put,

I've spent all of my adult years in the Age of Corporatism. I graduated high school into the first Arab oil embargo and graduated college with a degree in sociology into the second one. I started out in a retail management training program that was the catch-all for liberal arts majors at the time. But at least I was graduating into a society that hadn't yet been completely taken over by greed. That happened later, after Ronald Reagan took office, and while I myself have done well, our society hasn't. Oh sure, we have gewgaws and toys and electronics and two flat-screen TVs and 200 channels of nothing you'd want to watch on TV. People have pulled their kids out of school for Caribbean vacations paid for on home equity loans and people in Section 8 housing have smart phones. All of this is cited as examples by Republicans of how well off we are. But are we? And what about tomorrow?

Tomorrow is going to be the same as it was yesterday and I think she nails it pretty well.
Like I said, put this lady on your Go To list.

Is It Just Me, Or Does HuffPo Suck Even More Now?

Being an info /news junkie, I try to surf around to see what is the most current news.
The Washington Post shot themselves in the foot a few years ago and I will still occasionally stop by but HuffPo seems to have jumped off a fucking cliff lately.


Hippo's mating?

7 myths about making coffee?

The Most Nutitious Ice Creams?

 Really?

There are some some decent stories and news but I keep waiting to see Bat Boy on the front page.

I am going to do something here that I really haven't done before but I am going to ask you for your own opinion instead of me giving you mine.

Where do think is your best news source?

Where do you go to get your information that shapes your opinions on world events, politics, economic news or just plain old day to day news? One thing that really pisses me off about what we get to see and hear about what is happening is what they don't report on and let me tell you now, that that is a lot.

I go to FARK every day just because their headlines are funny and there are always off beat weird news items. Not because of serious journalism, it is a nice break from the doom and gloom.

The usual suspects after that are the LAT and the NYT and more than a few sites right there on my Blogroll.
I am only one guy with so much face time available to me for surfing the web.
TPM is a left leaning political site I try to visit once in a while but Live Leak and Black Listed News are good for things you won't see from the MSM. Shit, even Al Jazeera has more about world events than anything we get to see here. Let's not forget the BBC either.
I will be completely up front here and tell you outright that the only time I watch Fox News is when I can't avoid it.
They have been documented to be outright fucking lying so many times that they have been completely discredited as a news organization with an ounce of objectivity.

So, there it is, just a partial list, I want to know where YOU go to get legitimate news that helps you form your opinions on just what the fuck is really going on in this fucked up world.

I Can't Fucking Wait

Fucking idiots.

Every motherfucking one of them involved in this manufactured crisis.


It's Friday night, they will either come up with some fucked up mess of a Goddamn fucking half measure and declare themselves American heroes or they will stay true to form and shit the bed and roll around in it and wake up pointing fingers at everyone else.

I really don't know what anyone else thinks about this fucking goat rodeo but there ain't one single cocksucking, moneygrubbing motherfucker that is in office at 11:15 P.M. on July 29th of the year of 2011 that is going to get one vote from me come election time.
As a matter of fact, after having voted every year since I was able in 19 fucking 80, all I see is it is a complete waste of my time because I can't give the dirty sonsabitches hundreds of thousands or millions of very soon to be worthless fucking dollars.
Knock yerselves out trying to find one decent sonofabitch worth voting for, the ones already in office will squeeze their balls or tits unrellentingly, doing the bidding of their big money masters.


Don't think for one fucking second that I am not going to call out their bullshit, I pay my fucking dues and every one of those jack asses is fair game.

Sunshine is quite the disinfectant and this country stinks to high heaven of rotten stinking sickness.

Remember, something about all enemies, foreign and domestic.

Heavy on the domestic lately.

Somebody needs to turn those Jack Booted Thugs at the DHS loose on those fucking assholes in Congress.

Bonus points for every "enhanced body cavity search".

Shit, we could save money and claim it under Medicare.

Sure Is Quiet Around Here.

Yeah, I know.

Been pretty busy and like a fucking dumbass, I left the charger for my little laptop at  Nasty Girls, so I have had to seriously restrict my time online.

This really sucks because I am currently enjoying free WIFI.

Shit happens.

Hopefully I will be able to do some catching up this weekend.

Let me tell you how much I have been jonesing because I am an info junkie, I had to spend a buck twenty five two days in a row to buy the local dead tree version of the news.

Major suck!


The only saving grace of that is the fucking comics.


Dead tree news is by definition, day old news.


I don't buy day old bread and I hate having to pay good money for day old news.


I know, I'm not normal and  I don't ever want to be called that.

Thanks fer stopping by.

Have summa this,

This is what Bobby Jendell said  he didn't want to pay for volcano monoriting

Fucking idiot.

Relax For A Fucking Minute

 This is good, trust me.

Just so ya know, I always thought Steve Winwood was just a keyboard guy.

Oh, Fuck, no.

The guy is apparently a guitar master as well and this video had me with my jaw hanging open.

One more thing before we all kick back and watch an awesome performance.
Can I just say I fucking LOVE back up singers?



And yes dear, I'm looking at you, Suzanne.

Yet Another Great Post By Someone Else

Here is the difference between the America I grew up in and the Amerika that came into existence back in my early twenties.

Courtesy of Larry at I Painted My Fridge Red,

A Diary from  Brooklynbadboy  over at The Great Orange Satan puts it out there  there  so well.

The best part is that it was posted a year ago.

John Boenher's America.

It's amazing the talent and heartfelt thoughts that you can find by clicking through someone elses Blogroll, I'm telling ya. That is how I found Larry and this excellent diary.

Hard to argue against the cold hard truth too.

Cocksuckers like Boehner have no fucking clue.

Another Great Post By Someone Else

I have been trying to find something to jump start my creative juices and have been left cold and dry so I decided to put some links up to some other authors.

Some you would not necessarily think I would link to maybe but worthy of a read in my opinion.
You can't always be right about anything and sometimes taking a look at alternative viewpoints will give you a new perspective.

In this case, I think Sgt. Jarhead did a masterful job.

It really isn't political in an us VS. them way in regards to any one political party, it is more US, VS. THEM, as in all of us, getting dumbed down by the PTB for centuries and how it affects us all in these trying times.

An excellent essay in my opinion.

Please take a few moments to go read this, it is well worth your time.

Well said sir.

Responsiblities Of Those Living In A Police State

We all do, we all hate it and we all want it to go away.
It isn't.

Recognize that and learn how to deal with it.

These are some links to Claire Wolfe over at Backwoods Home Magazine and her thoughts on the matter.

Take the time to go read all four installments and leave your comments there, she deserves it and all I will do is go on another useless rant.

1st installment.

2nd Installment.


3rd Installment.

Have Some Faux News Motherfucker

This just cracks my ass up.

The world leader in bullshit news, who just happens to be embroiled in a multi national scandal that threatens to topple the entire global news network, just got punked by a bunch of hackers.

One day after the whistle blower who ignited this firestorm was found dead, the hackers known as Lulzec just pounded  one of Rupert Murdoch's news outlets with a phony  front page claiming Rupert himself was found dead.

The Sun wasn't really there.

If there was ever a dirty sonofabitch who had that shit coming, it was him.

I don't normally condone hacking in any way shape or form but good on you fuckers, he needs to get a slap in the cocksucker, hard.

The Current Debt Ceiling Negotiations Explained In Under Forty Five Seconds

Notice the Main Stream Media doing their part off to the right.



It's all fucking Kabuki at this point.

Mitch "The Chin" McConnell and his brilliant cave in plan today proves this point without question.

They aren't the least bit serious, yet.

Guess Who Just Blinked In The Debt Reduction Negotiations

That's right, John Fucking Boehner.

“Despite good-faith efforts to find common ground, the White House will not pursue a bigger debt reduction agreement without tax hikes. I believe the best approach may be to focus on producing a smaller measure, based on the cuts identified in the Biden-led negotiations, that still meets our call for spending reforms and cuts greater than the amount of any debt limit increase.”

Let me clarify that for you, the republicans know damn good and well that tax hikes are not being taken off the table and now they are going into reconcilliation mode.

Well damn, color me surprised, not.

Fucking assholes.

Hey, when they go in shooting for the moon and demanding unrealistic concessions, get them, and are still not happy?

Fuck you.

Go to bed and you are not getting dinner you spoiled little fucking brats.
Now is the time to get out the switch and start whipping their asses until they scream for mercy.

Rotten fucking bastards were all too willing to let our government default on the debt that THEIR fucking party saddled us with and when it comes down to the perspective of just who is going to wind up with a flaming bag of dog shit in their hand if that actually happened,, they fucking blinked.

The official policy of our government is that we do not negotiate with terrorists.
As far as I am concerned, the Republican party most certainly falls under that category by definition.

So, now that Cantor, Boehner and the rest of their ilk have been holding our country hostage over these budget talks and someone finally clued them in to what might actually happened if we default, my money is on some fucking asshole in the banking industry finally putting some facts in front of their asses and pointing out some of the probable consequences if that were to actually happen.

This time, it wouldn't be just the poor and middle class who would be getting an uninvited finger up the ass and God forbid the rich should contribute to the cause, which is exactly why Boehner got trotted out for some negotiating finally.

Fuck you very much, peckerhead.

The Future Is Here

No, I'm not talking about this,


Flying cars, meh, that is so yesterday.
No, I am talking about this,



How fucking cool is that?!
If you can imagine it and can get it on a computer, that thing can make it.
The possibilities are endless.
Have a rare antique part that no one makes anymore?
Clean it up, have it scanned and presto changeO, there ya go, a plastic replica that can be used to make a mold for a new casting.

That thing is off the charts cool.

H/T my friend Suzanne and my Cousin Tom who both sent me a link to the video within two minutes of each other.

Senator Inhofe Is A Dangerous Motherfucker.

I'm not just talking about his retarded right wing political views either.

It is well known that he is a backwards assed ignorant fucking cracker, his denial of Global Warming is legendary.
He probably thinks the sun revolves around a flat earth too. Ignorant fuck.

No, I am talking real life, danger to the public kind of shit here and the glaringly obvious truth that laws are for little people .

Inhofe "Scared The Crap Out Of" Airport Workers

FAA: Senator intentionally landed on closed runway


This happened last October.


Shortly after Inhofe landed, Sidney Boyd, who was supervising construction on the closed runway, called the FAA to report that Inhofe’s plane, a twin-engine six-seater, initially touched down on the runway and then “'sky hopped' over the six vehicles and personnel working on the runway, and then landed.”
During the call, which was recorded by the FAA, Boyd said Inhofe’s antics “scared the crap out of” workers, adding that the Cessna “damn near hit” a red truck. Referring to the vehicle’s driver, Boyd added, “I think he actually wet his britches, he was scared to death. I mean, hell, he started trying to head for the side of the runway. The pilot could see him, or he should have been able to, he was right on him.”
Boyd also said that Inhofe showed little contrition following the close call. “He come over here and started being like, 'What the hell is this? I was supposed to have unlimited airspace.'”

snip
My emphasis.

Even better;

In a bid to avoid “legal enforcement action,” Inhofe, who has a commercial pilot’s license, agreed to “complete a program of remedial training,” according to an FAA letter sent in January to Inhofe, a third-term Republican senator from Oklahoma.

My bold.

Instead of having his license yanked and facing criminally negligent and reckless endangerment  charges, they pussed out and made him take some fucking remedial fucking rules of the road while flying lessons kind of lame assed shit.

I call Bullshit in a big motherfucking way.

Oh, it gets even better. Take a gander at this fucking horseshit, he has enough balls to go after the FAA for inconveniencing his highness.

Sen. James Inhofe (R-OK) is pushing a bill that would protect pilots from "agency overreach" by the Federal Aviation Administration, in response to his own experience at the mercy of the FAA after he "scared the crap out of" airport workers last year when he landed his Cessna on a closed runway.
"I was never fully appreciative of the feeling of desperation until it happened to me," he said.

Yeah, after ya fucking near killed an entire construction crew and hop scotched over SIX fucking vehicles while trying to land at an obviously closed runway.

Cry me a fucking river you pretentious fucking asshole.

Jesus Christ, his sense of entitlement is off the charts.

Saving the best for last, feast your eyes on the most blatant case of out right ass kissing in recent memory,



AOPA president, Craig Fuller said his group, "applauds Senator Inhofe" for introducing the legislation and "giving the aviation community much greater certainty about the process of enforcing the regulations by which we fly." Fuller added, "we look forward to working with Senator Inhofe" in support of the bill. EAA president Rod Hightower said, "This bill addresses several inequalities that hamper the ability of aviators to even obtain the necessary information to defend themselves." EAA added its gratitude to the 24 Senators who stood in support of the bill. Said Hightower, EAA "is strongly supportive" of the bill "and urges its members to rally behind the measure." 

I seriously want to puke in my shoes after reading that.

I also want to see Inhofe involuntarily retired at the first opportunity.

The self righteous motherfucker almost killed a whole construction crew because he believes he can do whatever the fuck he wants, when he wants.

That he got off with literally a slap on the wrist should be enough to infuriate the good folks at the FAA but oh fuck no, someone got their arm twisted real good and off he goes.

Remember, laws are for little people, just in case you had forgotten.

What A Surprise

I can actually write a post without a single curse word.

Please, give me a break.

Sorry to burst any bubbles but I can actually articulate my musings without the need for expletives when I so desire.

I have to admit it isn't near as fun but I thought maybe something a little different was called for on the Fourth.

No one need worry that I am going to get all highbrow here but it was nice to actually put something together for a change that had a little depth to it without resorting to calling anyone a serial fellatio artist, even though plenty of those who I mentioned are most definitely dirty rotten male children of female dogs if you catch my drift.

Anyway, thanks fer stopping by.

The Fourth of July

Once again we have managed to survive another year since the anniversary of the Declaration of our Independence from Mother England was announced.

Today, we struggle to recognize what has become of such a remarkable struggle for our independence.

Our Bill of Rights has been gutted and our government regularly conducts business in direct violation of the Constitution that each and every public servant has sworn to uphold.

Illegal search and seizure is an everyday occurrence thousands of times a day.

We are not secure in our effects and papers, our very own government illegally spies on it's own citizens with impunity and complete confidence that there will be no legal ramifications.

Our Supreme Court of the land has given Carte Blanche to the business interests in this country when it comes to host of issues critical to the election of our representatives clear to and including allowing corporations with unlimited funds to spend those unlimited funds to literally buy legislation and the politicians who craft them with impunity.

Those same politicians are now sitting on their hands as we find the housing crisis is rife with fraudulent mortgages and millions of these fraudulent mortgages have thrown into question just who actually owns the title to these homes and people are being thrown out in the street.

Yet there is no rush to investigate and prosecute this criminal activity.


None.

Just as no one is currently sitting in a prison cell over the massive fraud and manipulation of our banking industry which nearly collapsed the entire world economy.

Our economy is in shambles and our elected officials are now playing a dangerous game of chicken over raising our debt ceiling, for the first time in our history, they are willing to completely destroy our fragile economy for political reasons.

Unemployment is still over nine percent and wages have stagnated for the last forty years, unless you happen to be in the top one percentile, which control twenty five percent of the assets in this country.

I sincerely hope everyone reading this has reasons to celebrate this day and gets to spend some quality time with friends and relatives.
BBQ is the order of the day for millions of Americans and the requisite fireworks display later this evening.

Our American Revolution is but a distant memory but we still have much work to do to right the wrongs that have come to dominate our existence as the greatest country on the planet.

I have been ranting and railing about the injustices I perceive to be thrust upon us by the very people who are supposed to have our best interests at heart for the last six years and I will not let these domestic atrocities go unnoticed and unspoken as long as I am able.

I am proud to say that there are hundreds of thousands, even millions of my fellow Americans that feel the same and call out misdeeds when they are exposed.

Accountability is a word that needs to be stressed repeatedly until it becomes a mantra.

The avarice and greed running rampant in our hallowed halls needs to be rooted out and exterminated if we are to survive as a viable country lest we become a nation of serfs doing the bidding of a select few who control who and what we see, hear, eat and drink and how we communicate amongst ourselves.

Have a safe and Happy Fourth folks.

Gadhafi Talking Shit, Again.

Apparently the miserable fuck is feeling the heat of hundreds of air strikes we have been pounding him with. It's not bad enough he is now wanted by the Hague for war crimes against his own countrymen, now he is threatening Europe.

Get a fucking clue dude.

- A defiant Moammar Gadhafi threatened Friday to carry out attacks in Europe against "homes, offices, families," unless NATO halts its campaign of airstrikes against his regime in Libya.
The Libyan leader, sought by the International Criminal Court for brutally crushing an uprising against him, delivered the warning in an audio message played to thousands of supporters gathered in the main square of the capital Tripoli.

snip


"These people (the Libyans) are able to one day take this battle ... to Europe, to target your homes, offices, families, which would become legitimate military targets, like you have targeted our homes," he said.
"We can decide to treat you in a similar way," he said of the Europeans. "If we decide to, we are able to move to Europe like locusts, like bees. We advise you to retreat before you are dealt a disaster."

You do that, there buster.

If and when any of your fervent followers get back, you won't be there to welcome them home as heroes.

It's a matter of time until his government collapses and he high tails it the fuck out of there just like Bumarak did in Egypt. His days of saber rattling are coming to an end, there are just too many forces aligned against him.

What will become of  Lybia after his timely departure is yet to be seen but it is a pretty sure bet that he has pretty much shot his wad.

All I can say is that it is about fucking time.
His sorry ass should have been yanked off the world stage twenty fucking years ago.
