Again, Why Shouldn’t I be Out of My Mind for 14 August 2009

Life is odd, never even. — Me

What does the Times have to do with promotion of healthcare reform? Regrettably, essentially nothing.Tell that to the proto-fascistic anti-American crazies — not that they’ll let a fact dissuade them from their hate radio and TV beliefs. (Remember: Walt Disney is finally essentially a fascist, just like the 60s delusions.)

Did I misread this maybe? The AP wants to build a news aggregator? Aren’t they dead-set against aggregators?

New boss same as the old boss indeed; different administration, our leaders still hate their troops and vets.

Fucking Rove: He did it. Here’s the proof (for those who believe in proof). Again, who did he help elect with his scummy tactics that made the world a better place? or even prevent the election of someone truly awful? Yeah, me neither…. So where’s the indictment?

Asshole redux: Niall Ferguson: If something is not meant racist but clearly can be interpreted as racist, how can one claim it racist just because it’s read that way? Simpler: Whether or not meant as a racist comment, it clearly could have been and was perceived as a racist statement. Be a man instead of a glib asshole (notwithstanding that’s how you made your wealth) and just take responsibility without the imbecilic whining. Can he now be sent back to his country? Please?

Assholes: Investors Business Daily. What is with the modern conservative? Completely unable to acknowledge mistakes notwithstanding, you know, facts and reality?

Thank you, Barack Obama: Thanks to your policies, wealth is growing even more concentrated amongst the nation’s wealthiest 0.01%. I’m no economist so cannot explain why but sffice to say that in a real-world sense, that is not a good thing. Not that he’s doing so well getting us, you know, genuine healthcare reform. Actually, he’s probably going to prevent real reform for another few decades…. Here‘s his latest surrender of an element of reform. It’s like the only thing keeping the GOP alive is his giving them legitimacy by caving to them all the time….

Oh, look, Professor K has a draft for the obit for the Obama administration!

Attention, Sarah Palin: The insurers don’t need no socialistic death panels; they’re doing great killing people without help.

CNBC also incited the teabagging proto-fascists to violence at town halls. Another journalistic source we can well afford to lose.

Asshole: And a great disappointment: John Edwards. Of course, it’s candy-ass to expect a pol to actually be a mensch — it’s mutually exclusive. But still.

Asshole: Timmy Geithner, lying front for the speculation bubble.

Asshole or cretin or what? USA Today dietitian recommends eating crap.

Scumbags: Marriott.

Scumbag: Whole Foods’ CEO. Just part of a pattern, here’s the latest: No need for “Obamacare”, just buy your stuff at his stores, it’s all the healthcare reform you need.

Too late, New York Times, you have already don’t enough damage. (See? I insult them and send them business! How can one complain?)

Oh, no, Bernie cheated on Ruth??

You do know that cheap is bad, it’s inexpensive that’s bad. The latter costs less than the former.

God, is there anything scarier than east Asian TV?

Whatever happened to Bruce Jenner? How did he end up with the kreepiest Kadashian?

This woman scares me!!!
This woman scares me!!!

Now if you want something less scary, like naked supermodels, look here.

Why So Happy? Out of My Mind for 12 August 2009

Assholes: Know-nothing pimps of torture.

Mexico: Really, the corruption permeates all levels of its society, doesn’t it? All levels.

What do we have? A statistical recovery?

The world’s greatest healthcare system: The the fee schedules are insane.

Cretins: The wingnuts, in the midst of an economic meltdown caused by an overly free market that cares solely for speculation, worries instead about affordable health insurance that actually covers stuff. The classic fear in a democracy: Ignoramuses riled up by demagogues (and “pundits”).

She’s so presidential…:

Karl Rove: Guilty! (But deep in our hearts, we knew it.)

That waterslide viddie? Faked!

You go, GM! Company’s first real innovation in decades!

What necessity mothers…:

Clearly, people used to have too much free time....
Clearly, people used to have too much free time....

What I’d love for my garage doors….

Wow! Rich drug dealers attract really hot girlfriends!
Wow! Rich drug dealers attract really hot girlfriends!

How Can One Not be Out of My Mind for 10 August 2009

Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.- – Buddha

When I said last fall some silliness about America being freed, liberated, I was at best exaggerating, certainly speaking prematurely and proven wrong by numerous subsequent acts by the current administration. I apologize for unjustified enthusiasm.

Some dope reporter thinks Philly’s two papers are case studies of the apparent or perceived or believed “last stand” of journalism. His mendacity is demonstrated by the use of the terms “journalistic worthiness” and “lenders”, the latter without any awareness of what an awful, destructive roles the lenders play, the destruction their foolish borrowers set into play. The journo’s hero is the same shithead who thinks it’s good for his paper to hire John Yoo. More knowledgeable (factually speaking) people fully know Yoo has nothing to say that is worth paying for. Too, in my opinion, “journalism”, in the broad sense, is safe. The papers, by and by, are committing suicide by their refusal to provide anything of importance to their readers, to wit, accurate, important news, analysis of any depth. (The newsmagazines are doing the same but moreso.) However, for the minute to minute crap, the web and cable are as fine as they want to be; the infrastructure is fully in place. As for depth, there are magazines — “Infinite Debt”, anyone? — and books which, by and by, are not suffering  and stand to gain from the dailies’ downfall. Snap quiz: If we lose this dope, we have lost what, if anything?

And here’s another prime example of the Big Media failing us on a major story. Listen, the media’s failings are pretty much the rule, not the exception.

Speaking of health insurance coverage or lack thereof: Big Journo has a vested interests  — financial ties — to the insurers so of course objectivity, reporting, facts — all to be ignored, thereby establishing the societal necessity of these assholes. The story is here.

Speaking of media mendacity: There are the poor, the middle-class and the only class whose pain matters to Big Media: Multi-millionaires and those wealthier. Again, journalism like this is essential to…? Not many people, really.

Again, the GOP hates programs that work. And that’s the most lucid they get; most of the time, they’re crazy like this: The insurers’ heads should be consulted on reform since they’re experts? Yeah, experts at wrongfully denying coverage, mis-managing both healthcare as well as their own bloated bureacracies and  the necessity for providers to bloat up their staffs, not to mention bankrupting providers. Flash: Our system works despite these assholes, not because of them, and that’s why, I’m sure, Obama feels a need to get more unearned wealth to them.

How it works, the really short version:

How are the big banks moving back into black? By stealing your money via bailout moneys and increased fees. And I’m sure this is fine with the Administration because surely the banks have spread more than sufficient wealth around to ensure that they will be free to do what they want at our expense. And what’s really amazing, to me, is that the GOP is even worse!

Liar: Will Smith.

Palm Pre? Sounded too good to be true? That’s because the corporate hype wasn’t supported by reality. The truth is here.

“Recovery” is a pretty fungible concept. Our “recovery” includes banks hemorhaging but appearing profitable, job losses slowing to a very limited degree. To me, recovery means an economy at least where it was a year or two ago, personal wealth-wise or, better, functional in a post-New Deal sort of way, lightly policed and controlled. Using the word “recovery” in any other way is just a lie.

Another fungible word: “Profit”. To me, a company’s one profitable quarter doesn’t make it profitable where its losses up to that point are a quantum or three greater than the minuscule profit. Here‘s an example. Simply, a single profitable quarter does not a profitable company make. (And in our example, this company is far from being in the black.)

Can we get rid of these America-hating idiots and scumbags? Please?

How Can One Rest? Out of My Mind for 9 August 2009

Atrios’ contributor is wrong about the health insurance reform, as is Atrios himself. Of course the insurers were against the bill initially. But why be against now that they got it gutted of all meaningful reform? They’re getting a windfall with all this people-will-be-required-to-be-insured nonsense, no robust public option, and a bunch of toothless requirements, the violation of which will result in meaningless wrist-slapping. The only reason they’ll keep fighting is that Obama is a clear pussy who can still be whipped some more. The insurers have essentially won’t, but they can still win bigger. Here, though, Atrios has a better description of what’s coming: neither reform nor an improvement. And here‘s the long version of the insurers’ victory. Thank God we have a deliriously popular leader and majorities in Congress. If we hadn’t…. Assholes.

This is how health insurance reform should be covered. The fact that it’s so unusual is, to say the least, damning.

Obama to the middle class: Drop dead.

Crap like this would be tacky even in a tabloid or on a cable news channel. Thank you, New York Times, for this display of your high standards and proof of Big Journalism’s obsession with dishonesty and proving its irrelevance. But then, Pinch Schulzberger never let anything like principle interfere with a helping a bud at the Times’ expense.

Sick fucks: The Teabaggers and their ilk. Indefensible. More of the same sickness here. So’s this asshole/congressman. And here‘s another worthless piece of life. Actually, here’s a different, cleaner, more accurate word for these assholes and sickos: Terrorists.

How does this happen? The mendacity (*koff koff*) of Big Journalism.

Times’ scoop: Paulson made policy for Goldman. If it wasn’t in the Times, I wouldn’t believe it…. Seriously, I wonder whether any of the editors at the Times follows news from any source but the Times.

Election 2012; Obama’s platform: “You have no alternative but me”. Actually, unlike Clinton, Obama’s predecessor was historically awful and his survivors are pretty clearly deranged with nothing to even appear to offer. Maybe Frank Rich put it best: Obama punked us (not that we had any choice).

Not only is our society about as racist as ever, ditto for sexism. Take away Big Business’ realization that crumbs of acceptance are necessary for business — non-whites and women actually buy pretty much the same stuff as white men, non-whites and women have talent and skills sometimes superior to white men — you’d be left with precious little progress over the years.

How did Ensign get ratted out? Was it by a fellow wacko? With friends like those….

Scoop! The Truth about President McCain Revealed! Out of My Mind for 6 August 2009

Power, n.: The only narcotic regulated by the SEC instead of the FDA. — /.

(Yes, I acknowledge the irony between that video and the nest item. I’m not the MSM, I recognize irony but….)

Must be a joke: CNBC’s rating’s tank unless the market’s tanking. That is so not true yet some asshole got paid for spewing that line of shit. Another little piece of the MSM obsoletes itself and loses a little audience. And isn’t that a pisser? Big Journalism’s sense of entitlement?

CNN: No balls to report, not even enough balls to run this:

Big Journalism fucking up on health insurance reform. We’re not surprised are we?

Reminder: Anyone who supported Clarence Thomas who says Sotomayor is unqualified is a partisan liar, prima facie unfit for leadership, a cancer on the commonweal.

(Speaking of) Douchebags: “Blue Dogs”. Yeah, yeah, you knew that too, but maybe not why.

Query: Again, why does the MSM give any publicity to people like these? In the context of the commonweal, they’re sociopaths.

Sarkozy’s France stinks, fatally.

Looks like MySpace is for losers, from Murdoch on down….

Killed because of his internet addiction. Yipes!

Not every fiat is stupid and pointless even if it seems so.

Ask me, most old people get really stupid when they hit old age, refusing to be open to anything, acting like two year olds except they’re adults. Then there’s this guy:

You too can be born in Kenya, like President McCain was — and here’s the proof:

Out of My Mind for 5 August 2009

Freed! From a couple of months imprisoned in North Korea: Comrade-journos (whih is to say real, non-MSM journos) Laura Ling and Euna Lee. (More here.)

Big Pharma’s deadly fraud: The story and the proof.

Sub-cretinous idiots with too much time on their hands and no sense; read about them and their stupidity here.

A tiny bit of justice: Creationist owner of creationist amusement park busted for tax fraud; him and Al Cap[one…. He would have paid his taxes, it’s just that God told him not to….

The shame that is modern journalism: a pathological refusal to deal in facts and accuracy, everything must be undercut to the point of meaninglessness. Maybe the MSM’s infected by this pathology…? And here’s another, related example of their inherent corruption and deliberate dishonesty.

America: It ain’t what it used to be (which I of course credit to what I call the Raygun counter-revolution*.) We’re ever more subsumed which is to say we’re ever more losing freedom…. (*For every revolution, there’s an equally powerful counter-revolution of one sort or another.)

What makes ours the World’s Greatest Healthcare System!

The GOP believes there’s no problem for which tax cuts aren’t the solution. Bad idea (you knew that but here’s proof.) Republicans: Only good if you hate America.

Cretinous scumbag: Orly Taitz. Can’t someone please shut her up since the MSM seems to find her newsworthy? And if you don’t believe she’s utter garbage, here’s proof.

Murderous Christian scumbag? Blackwater founder Erik Prince.

So, the next Mac OS has more pre-orders on Amazon than Win7. What I wonder: What percentage of PC owners buy upgrades as opposed to just getting them with new hardware as compared to Mac owners.

This is cool! (Warning: Site takes forever to load.)

Out of My Mind for 4 August 2009

Why we’re doomed: $100,000,000.00 in lobbying $$$ to doom or corrupt or, I should say, pervert health reform. Much more on the slow (and inexcuseable) death of true reform here.

I don’t know what kind of idiot she is: Kay Bailey Hutchinson and, maybe, the most insane campasign website ever. I dunno, maybe she wants to be the new Palin…?

Asshole and cretin: Prodigy wingnut and the Times’ new loony, Ross Douthat.

Assholes and scumbags: The GOP was for Medicare rationing until it became opposed to a non-existent plan for Medicare rationing.

Wow, does Obama actually give a shit about this country?? If so, where’s the proof, other than lip?

Asshole: President John Sidney McCain III. Again. Clearly a cunt, hence his selection of Palin.

So we couldn’t trust GE to screw around with news coverage after all. What a surprise…. Corporate journalism: who needs it?

Asshole: Rush Limbaugh. Of course.

Oooh, Obama has a Kenyan birth certificate! Watch and learn:

Sick fuck savages: The wingnuts. They’re all crazed, aren’t they?

The nightmare that is the Florida housing market, a tribute to the bubble. (How come Obama doesn’t want that bubble re-inflated?)

Hell on earth.

Hack parking meters, park for free??

Experiment on yourself.

Micro$oft innovation: closed open standards. Innovating crap….

Was Tenenbaum a putz?

(About that last video.)

(More about that last video here.)

(About that last video here.)

Personally, I don’t believe he has nuts to hit or, at least, is so easy a target…:

Does this make you horny?
