Out of My Mind for 13 August 2009

Picture 33

Killers: The health insurance industry. How else are you going to make obscene profits?

Exposed! The truth about healthcare reform!

Assholes and scumbags: Niall Ferguson and the assholes at the Financial Times who publishes odious shit like this:

President Barack Obama reminds me of Felix the Cat. One of the best-loved cartoon characters of the 1920s, Felix was not only black. He was also very, very lucky. And that pretty much sums up the 44th president of the US …

Of course: FT is foreign so just might not have sufficiently elevated taste so as to recognize how stupidly offensive it is. Then, too, editors don’t really edit very much anymore, by and by, specially for a superstar like Professor Ferguson, who all get a pass until the media shitstorm. As for the writer, Professor F has made his fortune by being able to twist any fact or reality into something the gives support to establishment positions based in fact on utter bullshit. He gives them a false intellectual sheen. Professor K has a review of the column the quote above opens.

Assholes, cretins and traitors: The barbaric imbeciles who use town halls for violence and disruption and the organizations that control them. Again, these people’s contribution to the well being of the American society is, at most, insignificant. In the macroeconomic sense, they barely pay their way, as it were, if at all, so, well, fuck them. They’re proto-fascist, anti-democracy and freedom, and deliberately completely ignorant so who needs them? Doubt me? Here‘s how wilfully stupid and ignorant they are. And they maintain their stupidity and ignorance by rely on assholes like this guy.

What a deal! Buy a Pre and Palm spies on you!

Assholes: The MPAA one-ups the RIAA: They want to punish you without bothering with any legal silliness. A system of law is so 20th century, not at all what’s needed in what the corporatists want this country to be, a banana republic.

Gee, the banks haven’t gotten rid of all them toxic assets. They’ve instead lied about them and ignored them but they’re still there. Watch! The better to re-inflate the speculation bubble which brought the country a golden age of widespread, broadly-distributed, long-term wealth. Not.

Speaking of which, watch this too.

Hey! The wingnuts’ death panels already exist — and the private, capitalist, non-socialist health insurers have them. Watch here!

Douchebag: She didn’t only play one named for herself, she is one.
