Doomed, More Doomed and Maybe Terminally Doomed

Can you find inflation amongst these numbers? You could, if you were a blind, lying pol whoring for Big Finance.

Deficits had nothing to do with the Global Economic Meltdown. And here’s the current problem.

Never liked this right wing meme that no one could figure out anything with a leak. The latest riff is here and like them all, horseshit.

The Raygun revolution’s fraudulent economy — a house of cards that’s finally collapsed with nothing to replace it. (Link.)

President Palin cannot hunt, she can only lie about it. And that’s why the Republican party is the party for her. And just in case you had any doubts how disgusting that retard Kate Gosselin is, you can say goodbye to them. And here’s more.

Exactly:

The Oklahoma Daily has a well-written editorial about the current state of airport security. Though the subject has overly-commented on, this article is well worth the read. Quoting: “The risk of a terrorist attack is so infinitesimal and its impact so relatively insignificant that it doesn’t make rational sense to accept the suspension of liberty for the sake of avoiding a statistical anomaly. There’s no purpose in security if it debases the very life it intends to protect, yet the forced choice one has to make between privacy and travel does just that. If you want to travel, you have a choice between low-tech fondling or high-tech pornography; the choice, therefore, to relegate your fundamental rights in exchange for a plane ticket. Not only does this paradigm presume that one’s right to privacy is variable contingent on the government’s discretion and only respected in places that the government doesn’t care to look — but it also ignores that the fundamental right to travel has consistently been upheld by the Supreme Court. If we have both the right to privacy and the right to travel, then TSA’s newest procedures cannot conceivably be considered legal. The TSA’s regulations blatantly compromise the former at the expense of the latter, and as time goes on we will soon forget what it meant to have those rights.” (Link.)

Almost enough already....
