Look here: Hysterical headline over story that… doesn’t support the head and in fact is contra to the head. Another example of Big Journalism’s effort to make itself inessential, irrelevant. If they’re successful, they clearly won’t be missed when they go the way of the Pony Express…..
A thought: J.P. Morgan got his chance to save Wall Street and capitalism because there was no public sector to do the job. But what’s scarier about his one-man rescue operation is the mentality: Is there a Master of the Universe who would the same thing? I ask because there is no sign of such a person let alone the mentality from which such a person would arise.
Read how Obama is reinflating the speculation bubble because, you know, it does so much more good for the economy than conservative fiscal policies and planning for the long term. I’m sure his failure is due at least in part to his fetish for bipartisanship. By all means, let the destroyers control reform of their abuses. Criminals get punished; no reason the same should not be done to the GOP destroyers.
Again, was there fraud in the pre-rigged Iranian election? For that matter, since it was already rigged, why the surprise? And do the neocons and other nutjobs who stole our not-terribly-rigged election 2000 be the ones to cry about any of this? (Last question was rhetorical.)
The quoted letter here is so pathological; it proves the complete lack of value to the public discourse of the wingnuts. Anyone who feels a need to go bipartisan with them… well, needs an immediate intervention.
What makes me sad: If I was a wingnut and this guy was part of the liberal conspiracy, I could say he someone should just kill him. But I’m not and he certainly isn’t, so I can’t (though if it happened…) 😦
Bitch of the day. That she is, though, actually does not make what Mark Sanford did any less wrong. (Note that I’m a liberal and as such have no problem with the cheating, it’s the hypocrisy. And while I sort of agree with this, it merely explains the wingnut position but does not change mine.)
The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, nor to worry about the future, but to live the present moment wisely and earnestly. — Buddha
So he confesses and cries like a baby. Where’s the taking any responsibility? Apologizing for lying on so profound a level, for the dishonesty? It’s like there’s not a single GOP pol with anything remotely like true honor and this asshole was nowhere being the exception. To put it politely, he was a posturing piece of garbage. But that goes back to when he was screwing his puta behind all our backs. An awful little man.
Why are facilities associated with rightist organizations and the such never bombed or attacked but lefty facilities such as abortion clinics and the offices of diversity organizations are? What’s that say about the right? That the lefties fail to incite their followers like Rush and O’Reilly do theirs? Is this some sort of proof that the wingnuts are truly sick, that they only condemn the violence after they successfully incite it? And Professor K got this right: The wingnuts will rise again, sure as Obama will re-inflate the speculation bubble. (And he’s right about this too but his periodic optimism hasn’t helped.)
Michael Jackson’s death means little to me — I mean, my world, already spinning at an accelerated rate, didn’t stop for his death (slowed a little bit momentarily for Farrah’s though) — but I do hope he’s finally at peace, His life, at the end of the day, must have been a troubled one, particularly the last five or ten years when he went from supremely talented musician and performer to gossip industry freak show.
I totally can’t figure out whether this is worth sharing….
