The two symbols of the Republican Party: an elephant, and a big fat white guy who is threatened by change. — Seth MacFarlane And the third is the huge bribe….
Hatred does not cease through hatred at any time. Hatred ceases through love. This is an unalterable law. – Buddha
Men use thought only to justify their wrong doings, and speech only to conceal their thoughts. — Voltaire
Haiti: Not an issue, by and by, that terribly obsesses me but still needs a little addressing. First, a great deal of the reason it’s such a dysfunctional nation: The double penetration, as it were of abusive racist imperialism then having its nascent finances destroyed by the imperial powers including the good old USA. And here’s where I may have lost it for the last time re the Big Media: Why in fuck’s name do any of them feel any need to give any exposure to the sick mutterings of Pat Robertson? If you ain’t condemning his disgusting bullshit in the strongest terms (and they don’t since he’s not a liberal but a Christofascist), you don’t give him any exposure. And if you want to know what’s really going on down there, start here.
And if you do want to help, start here and/or here. And here’s Doctor Without Borders doing what few do: bringing fast relief. And give them some money — one of the precious few charities that actually do anything worth shit. And here’s something else: if every corporation does this, well, it’s a whole lotta crumbs of good.
Speaking of the crime against Christianity (such as it is), watch him get smacked around a little:
Damn him and all the idiots who give him any credibility. Shameless:
“Something happened a long time ago in Haiti, and the people might not want to talk about it. They were under the heel of the French…and they got together and swore a pact to the devil. They said ‘We will serve you, if you will get us free from the French.’ True story. And so the devil said, ‘Okay, it’s a deal.’ And they kicked the French out — the Haitians revolted and got themselves free. But ever since they have been cursed by one thing after the other…They need to have and we need to pray for them a great turning to God. And out of this tragedy I’m optimistic something good may come…”
— Pat Robertson
Essential reading. Essential, if you believe in knowledge….
Did I say recently that the elite media traffics in a whole bunch of absolute lies and bullshit, which is to say they’re all inherently unreliable?
Speaking of which, a whole bunch of bullshitting cocksuckers who denied a housing bubble right up to the meltdown. Incredibly, the wingnuts are disproportionately prominent on the list… wonder why….
Taibbi was right about Goldman… only took months for the media elite to confirm, so who needs them?
“Market research showed us that younger Canadians and women were very very unlikely to ever buy a magazine called The Beaver no matter what it’s about,” says editor-in-chief Mark Reid. “For whatever reasons, they are turned off by the name.” The magazine has been renamed Canada’s History. Link.
Is this another a story the Times got wrong?
What to fear: more oppression, more loss of freedom…. It’s scary, it’s real and this is no fundraising fearmongering — it’s coming. Count on it. The bad guys won at last….
Assholes: Jamie Dimon and Lloyd Blankfein.
National security may have been threatened as a result of this but at least someone made some money and that’s what counts.
Sad, sad, sad (if true, I mean, presumption of innocence and all…).
There is no hope and here’s proof….
Wow! Nexus-One: For the price of an iPhone, I can get a miserable experience. And lousy tech support. And if I buy an unlocked phone, I can pay $300 more than it’s cost. (Yes, Google’s entitled to some profit and distribution costs. But 200%??) Actually, maybe it’s not so super after all…. Did I say not so super? And the T-Mobile 3G sucks. There’s a limit to the knowledge Schmidt was able to steal (not evilly, of course) while on Apple’s board….
How beezarre! A haunted testicle!?
This isn’t evil??
Beloved indeed; one can assume the people know what the media elite cannot say: Beloved Leader deserves no little credit for America’s sorry state:
This beautiful in so many ways:
