Laffs and Surprises; Out of My Mind for 18 August 2009

I agree with that vile piece of garbage, Ted Nugent about this — but then, I would.

Another newspaper that won’t be missed. This is inexcuseable editorial ineptitude.

Actually, by and by, U.S. papers are pretty crappy. Read here what’s better, and what they should be.

I did declare meaningful healthcare reform dead, didn’t I? Obama did too! So who cares now whether it passes? The final bill will be garbage and probably will make things worse, certainly not better. After all, pretty much all that will be left will be compulsory coverage. That is, more people will be allowed to pay premiums to the insurers so they can be denied necessary coverage. It takes a sick mind to consider that reform, sick or a lying sacking of shit. Thank God, Barack Obama is president! And Mr. President, thank you and the MSM for reinvigorating the GOP: now needed more than ever. Assholes. Had the traitors on the ropes…. It was great giving a mandate to a Dem president so he could let GOPers and rightist Dems call the shots….

The public option: Back from the dead or did the House fail to get the news of its death?

Professor Krugman has his little obit for healthcare reform here. I only beg to differ on his point that Team Obama failed to comprehend the importance to progressives of a public option. Until proven otherwise, I believe, Obama personally doesn’t care. All he cares about is re-election and leaving office wealthy and lionized. Fool me once…. Attention, Mr. President: That’s one lousy reason to be president. The only way you’ll get re-elected is McCain/Palin redux because you’ll have a series of inexcuseable failures and the nation will be in the midst of the second dip of a W-shaped recession, thanks to your efforts.

This might be nice: The lack of a public option will may doom Obamacare.

This does worry me: How will the leftist journalism and bloggery  survive?

Wingnuts: Delusional. Liberals: Droning in denial. (And another example is here. You know, the market for bullshit has, like, eclipsed the old market for truth….)

The perverse genius of Niall Ferguson: Slammed for writing lead paragraphs can be interpreted by readers as racist, he bleats about his proof that the allusion was not a racist one wrong. His focus is, ultimately, on proving he isn’t a racist nor was the writing meant to be racist. Completely ignored is main issue: How did readers perceive the writing at issue. Ferguson deliberately ignores that to distract with his being. Well, I’m sorry, writings are, well, rad; a reader does not investigate the writer to double-check his intent and mentality, etc., as they read. It is this deep stupidity that is one of the things I so hate about the modern conservative. Or more simply, he is utterly dishonest, full of shit. As Professor K says, the turd is simply a poseur. Given his dishonesty, his intellectualism is shallow and false. Professor K provides an example of his shallowness, his willingness to substitute glibness for, you know, actual knowledge. Perhaps he can be sent back to his country….

Jeb Bush had his own bubble.

Proof that the wingnuts hate America.

Hotter than Palin (to me, at least).

Incredible! Most companies that back-dates did not get caught!

Let’s get justice for a genius driven to death by haters.

How to get high: Snort your money. Really. A possible explanation for the mania on Wall Street — it’s not just greed??

Let’s mangle us some English!

Now for a little topical humor for the young people (and young at heart):

I love this song, perfect Reggae-ish beat for the heat and sweetly melancholic lyrics:

Short (Monday) And Sour (Understandably): Out of My Mind for 17 August 2009

An opinion should be the result of thought, not a substitute for it. — Jef Mallett

This one’s for Obama (see below):

An insincere and evil friend is more to be feared than a wild beast; a wild beast may wound your body, but an evil friend will wound your mind. — Buddha

There are two types of people in this world, good and bad. The good sleep better, but the bad seem to enjoy the waking hours much more. — Woody Allen

Damn straight, this makes me sick: The victory of “No”, the triumph of lies — the liars won:

DEAD:

HEALTHCARE REFORM

(Try and get re-elected now, Obama: Friend of the GOP! Actually, the defeat starts in 2010. I must say, it’s an absolute tragedy that a deliriously popular president with majorities in both houses can’t do anything of substance. Not that the Big Media with their relentless, irresponsible repetition of GOP lies helped. Well, I suppose a rerun of 1996 is better than a repeat of 2000….)

The next governor of New Jersey knows all about corruption. He’s got the experience, every step of the way….

(About the video here.)

I want this, or at least a chance to play with one:

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.

Briefly Out of My Mind for 7 August 2009

We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started, and know the place for the first time. — T.S. Eliot

To me, it looks like what remains of the health insurance reform will exclude any limits on reckless denials of treatments. Without reform of that a public option, I’d choose bankruptcy court as my insurer, that and my local ER. And this is so depressing, almost as depressing as the fact that resulting bill will fall short, only question being How Sshort?

Does this mean smokers (like, say, Barack Obama) are schizophrenics??

Asshole and traitor (long overdue, here): Karl Rove. Note to Big Media: Being a person who accomplished absolutely no good ever in his life and did great harm to this nation does not mean you owe him any publicity.

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.)

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

Does this make you horny?

I Hear the Drums of Doom…. Out of My Mind for 2 August 2009

Everyone wants results, but no one is willing to do what it takes to get them. — Dirty Harry (This should be sufficient proof that this is not a knee-jerk bleeding heart liberal blog.)

It is better to practice a little than to talk a lot. — Muso Kokushi

Hey, it's the story of my life!
Hey, it's the story of my life!

Goodbye, Detroit....
Goodbye, Detroit....

We’re fucked: Geithner thinks the biggest problem facing the economy and holding back a full recovery: the growing deficit. In other words, the speculation bubble must be reinflated. And clearly, Obama is fine with this.

All America manufactures in significant amounts: Weapons. I suppose this is a direct result of all them Republican policies meant to restore pride in America…. (Actually, it’s worse than that.)

Bizarre! Fewer deaths in Iraq since the handover?? Of course, it’s getting deadlier for our troops in Afghanistan….

Let me see if I’m clear: People are required to buy health insurance, with no meaningful public option and toothless so-called reforms of the private carriers? What am I missing? It looks like an utter piece of shit. Or, more politely, a windfall for the insurers and, well, an utter absence of, you know, reform. Another mystery: Why do the Big Media feel any obligation to defend our dysfunctional healthcare system and, for that matter, the antipathy towards the same public sector involvement the other major capitalist states offer so, you know, we can compete? And has Obama threatened to veto anything without a legitimate public option? Of course not, and that’s why there’ll be no reform, just an insurer windfall bill, just an exacerbation of all of the problem with the current system…. The best opportunity we’ll see, pissed away by a lazy leader…. Of course, getting re-elected is the most important thing to him, not doing anything for the voters. Re-election gets him a payoff bigger than Clinton’s. Now if he instead gets Jimmy Cartered….

(More info regarding that video is here.)

Matt Taibbi wrote an obit for genuine health insurance reform. Short version: Significant majority + popular president + desperate need + overwhelming public support = failure to act. But then, this is the same leadership who believes that all that is needed for economic recovery is to reinflate the speculation bubble. They are so wrong; if they were right, the economy wouldn’t have collapsed in the first place. Meanwhile, this congressman suffers a hallucination regarding a proper system.

Fuck corporate and corporatist news. Who needs it? Greenwald explains via the latest failing.

Gee, the Tennenbaum case looks like it was majorly fucked. This is how it should have gone down (and resulting in a verdict in favor of the defendant).

Asshole cunt. Mitch Albom, a walking crime against humanity. I fucking hate people who feel the wealthy pay too much in taxes. Fact: Not in this country they don’t. (Now, beliefs are something else again.) And then the same fuckers believe those without can’t possibly pay too much in taxes.

A flacid explanation how the Times fails. Hey, Clark, five editors screwing up? Maybe editorial is dumb, lazy and overstaffed and, for that matter, the publisher and his beloved editor in chief have no clue what’s going on? Inexcuseable.

Our leaders got a toothless promise to do good from a bunch of mortgage companies that destroyed the housing market and a big chunk of the economy. When you read how thay all failed to perform, remember that they promised and keep supporting Obama because he got them to promise.

Assholes: Lobbyists (okay, the officials that whore for them).

Osama Bin Laden really was America’s BFF right up til 9/11. And thank you, Ronnie Raygun for all you did to empower OBL, etc.!

How California failed:

Here’s my thought of the day: All the bad stuff happening? All proof of what happens when you stop being concerned with the long term.

Really, why can’t one support conservative values while cheating on one’s wife with prostitutes? After all, hypocrisy, imbecility, deliberate lying — aren’t those modern conservative values?

Reader’s Digest believes a joke about a woman beaten to death with a golf club is suitable.

I like this: “Defeatocrats”:

Meanwhile, the GOP got a new theme song.

Flash: It’s the white people that are oppressed and the victims of racism. The proof is here.

Proof that Christ is not the son of God nor himself the Christian God. Sorry, Goys.

My Day of Rest, Such as it is; Out of My Mind for 1 August 2009

He who finds a thought that enables him to obtain a slightly deeper glimpse into the eternal secrets of nature has been given great grace. — Albert Einstein

Amazing! A record company takes advantage of illegal use of a song not sue the infringers but to use the infringement for selling the song — and succeeds wildly! (More here.) Again, infringement does no significant harm — anymore than free listens on radio or TV — and can actually increase sales. Someday, the recording industry may yet rediscover reality and give up its senseless, trouble-making beliefs….

Assholes and cretins: Apparently, the majority of don’t accept that Obama was born in the U.S.

Assholes and scumbags: East Hampton won’t expand its library’s children’s room for fear of poor children (from where?) using it.

Lying cocksucker: Rush Limbo: Threatens to move out of New York, still there. Please, Rush, leave our city, please!

See how dead racism is.

Obama does something right. Not terribly important like, I don’t know, stopping rampant, economy-destroying Wall Street speculation, but something…. Me, I personally would expect better from the Antichrist….

The public option: Dead again?

Actually, it’s worse over there.

The corporatist lawyers, how do they justify grossly disproportionate damages? Someone illegally downloads an album: $15.00 saved by the downloader yet an award of $80,000.00 is justifiable how? The corporatist lawyers have no problem with that but if an individual is, oh, say, crippled or killed by medical mistake or incompetence and seeks compensation through the court system, that bothers them. How do they justify that?

Another great American heard from.

What is the purpose of this? Why do the Big Media think that they can attract an audience by doing everything except what they’re supposed to do?

Is inciting a deliberate killing legal? And isn’t fair to report about the inciter?

Loving married couple of the day: read about themif you dare!
