Assholes: The Saudis. Any of them, all of them. I hate the Republicans’ submissive love of them. Let the get GOP be their submissives.
Uber Asshole: Sen. Jeff Sessions. Clearly, he has nothing positive to contribute to society. It’s time for him to go or, for that matter, “go”, in a Bill O’Reilly on Vitter sense. Just saying, interpret it as you will….
Fuck Goldman Sachs too. Anyone know what the speculators did that created any sort of broad financial health or wealth? Me neither. And if you can’t or won’t buy the “Rolling Stone” issue with the Taibbi piece on Goldman (and you should!), read it here.
And here is an asshole supporter of the speculation bubble.
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.
A religion of love doesn’t believe in forced conversions. You can have love or you can have violence. So at the end of the day, this is (among other things and hypocrisies), this is a religion that tals love but acts violence.
America’s favorite spiritual family, Fred Phelps’ Westboro Baptist Clan, came to Silverton, Oregon on Monday, November 24th, 2008, spreading the good news that God hates Silvertonians (having earlier visited Portland and Tigard to share the news that the lord cannot stand Portlanders and the country of Finland). The Mayor of Silverton (Stu Rasmussen) is transgender, and that ticks off the deity but good. Alas, the Lord had other commitments and could not deliver His condemnation in person: instead, He who is the One True God chose to delegate the job of sharing His bellicosity to one man and three young women from Kansas who had some free time. The God of the Israelites is one mysterious dude, and His hiring practices are opaque. He is nothing if not the King of “Go Figure.”
As part of God’s plan to splash wee-wee all over our national symbols, the good ladies of Westboro stood upon the flag of the United States, in a symbolic act believed to have something to do with wearing extremely patriotic shoes.
And in case you didn’t already know:
To their unmitigated shame, the Silvertonians responded by smiling and displaying their own signs…
A point is made:
A response was forthcoming:
It was grand fun while it lasted, but the Westboro Baptists had miles to go before they slept, they waved goodbye and off they schlepped…
and some say they heard Jesus, who most surely wept…
