This really is horrifying. I just don’t understand why they would pass a law making it basically illegal to talk about this in Japan. Don’t most of the citizens already know? I kinda understand why they don’t really talk about it much over here. It’s probably like a common courtesy sort of arrangement, basically one [...]
erik commented on the blog post Poll: Americans No Longer Believe In American Dream
One must wonder if this apparent connection between Saudi Arabia and 9/11 might explain President Obama’s decision not to attack Syria? Obviously Saudi Arabia and Quatar both were hoping to have Assad taken out so as to allow them to subvert Putin’s ability to monopolize supplying Europe with NG.
Everything looked like a go, but then suddenly President Obama changed his mind. Could it be that some delayed info processing occurred at the NSA (they likely have a backlog, especially on older collections) that revealed the Saudi connection to 9/11?
Inquiring minds would like to know. Perhaps this will be the ‘October surprise’ that President Obama can unleash just in time to shift the sands next year (if all else fails of course). If the American people learn that the bush regime coddled the Saudi’s even after they helped the ‘terrorist’ attack us on 9/11, many Americans would likely refuse to support republiturds, thereby insuring our victory!
One thing is certain…….9/11 still remains curious to many persons and having the full story released could prove to be a real game changer right?
“Do not mock a pain you have not endured. Imagine being on the Red team and being forced to twist your mind into pretzels every day”.
I sympathize with those in the movement who experience the angst presently infecting our perceptions. The FACT is though the American people WILL NOT allow the extremist teabag filth to crush this nation in the manner they have poor Europe.
The bottom line is that the majority of the general population votes for a combination of economics and social issues. On both these fields of battle we now own the flag and for this reason our final victory is assured.
We must bear in mind the FACT that we now live in a globalized world. 2014 will be a year of astonishing economic progress. Japan, Venezuela, Argentina, and other less well known nations have recently began to enact truly brilliant economic initiatives that will ignite the global economy during 2014. The spill over effects are certain to lift all boats and propel our forces to victory.
The assaults of koch sisters propaganda will be rendered useless against the FACTS of prosperity brought forth from the coming tsunami of growth emanating from these nations who’ve rejected the shackles of austerity and undertaken bold measures of economic sensibility.
WE SHALL PREVAIL!!!
I’m not sweating this. Somehow we almost always end up doing just fine, and that’s even with the corporate owned ‘news’ constantly spewing absurd propaganda against us, trying like crazy to get teabagger republiturds into power so they can screw America.
We’ve got to remember that most Americans are dumber than cat crap. By the time next November rolls around Obamacare will have settled in as just being normal, the economy will be at full tilt, and we can always count on the republiturds to step in their own poo.
Polls really don’t matter until a few weeks out.
I appreciate that you inject some sense into this thread. Bashing Obamacare may be all the rage right now, but all this mean spiritedness isn’t going to help our cause in November 2014. The typical voter is dumber than a box of rocks and by promoting all these negatives we risk forming an opinion that may very well lead to reduced turn-out.
Obamacare is the law now and like it or not we need to support this law in order to move FORWARD.
erik commented on the blog post Ron Paul Thinks His Son Will Run for President in 2016
This freak show doesn’t stand a chance. His moron racist old man couldn’t even make it through the republiturd primary. Anyone who thinks gold is money and even more extreme, that Austrian ‘economics’ is gunna fly is flat-out batsh^t lunatic deranged.
Even the Neo-cons won’t touch this POS. Of course the corporate ‘news’ will gleefully push this extremist teabag sewage slug like the second coming of old ronnie boy, but the American people will crap this sociopath out the door faster than a spoiled taco.
Having this maniac carry the flag for team red is just the gift we need.
Hillary will wipe the floor with his mop headed poo sack.
erik commented on the blog post Volcker Rule Approved By FDIC, Federal Reserve, And SEC
It’s about time Goldman Sachs takes a good kick in the sack. I was delighted when JPM got slapped around but the squid is basically capitalism central and by forcing them to stop reaping billions by speculation. This may prove to be a far more significant move than many presently consider it to be.
The next step will be to attack the other primary dealer banks who essentially launder $$$$$$$$$ by buying up Treasuries then dumping them with the Fed for a tidy little profit! These vile inside players basically get their money for nothing, park it as ‘reserves’ then rip us all off by collecting interest!
If we force them to invest the money into the economy instead the benifits to the general population would be enough to finally get out of this nasty rut and begin moving FORWARD!!
That is an excellent point, one I had not previously considered. Are you by chance aware of any ‘studies’ that might provide a correlation between the abysmally low pay of law enforcement officers and these outlier, seemingly rogue departments such as we apparently see here with L.A county?
I’m inclined to suspect also that inadequate Federal funding may be playing a key role as well. Has the ‘sequester’ (austerity) played a role in this?
This sort of information is indeed somewhat disturbing. Seems to me the solution is to empower the Federal Family so as to reduce the ability of the teabagger extreme right to gain a monopoly over the use of force. Having local law enforcement gangs run amok in such troubling ways certainly adds weight to the credibility of Progressivism. Were the Central government sufficiently powerful, such violations against social justice could be stamped out for good.
This situation ought to be of great concern to those citizens who fall victim to the perverse allure of Libertardarianism. Were the Federal Family successfully reduced in size and scope, all local law enforcement organizations would become essentially just criminal gangs established to ‘muscle’ for crime lords ruling over anarchist domains.
Kinda like feudal times, almost tribal.
Someone ought to contact the department of justice about this troubling situation.
I’m now not only sick………….Disturbed as well.
erik commented on the blog post Countries Remain Opposed to Some of More Extreme US Proposals in TPP Negotiations, According to WikiLeaks
I haven’t really paid much attention to this TPP business. It does sound like some of the features might not be ideal. It seems to me that people are a bit quick to blame President Obama though. The FACT is that he has assigned people to negotiate this for him and he is NOT personally involved.
I’ve noticed lately that a hole lot of the comments on FD sound much like the teabag creeps at work, it’s ridiculous to actually think the guy is aware of every little detail of what the Federal Family is up to at all times. The job of the President is to hire people to manage the various departments and initiatives and whatnot, it isn’t to micro manage all the details. The FACT is that President Obama is trying very hard and not everyone is willing to cooperate.
Another thing to keep in mind is that the NSA gathers LOTS of data. Even on important people. How do we know if maybe they even monitor negotiators, judges, even Congress people? Just because it seems pretty far fetched doesn’t eliminate the possibility. Maybe they get info or set people up and then blackmail them into just doing what the extreme right wants to do in order to help out the millionaires and billionaires?
Who knows, but the FACT is that blaming it all on President Obama isn’t very helpful and it makes people sound mean spirited.
I’ve never much cared for Rahm. I see him more as an opportunist than a true Progressivist. The fact that he was let go pretty much tells the story. President Obama is extremely loyal to those he actually trust and to have this POS jump ship reveals that a determination was made that he was not trustworthy.
So I get it that many of us on the left feel concerned about the propaganda stream presently flowing against the ACA. Even I’ll admit that so far most ‘people’ don’t seem to realize the benefits and President Obama’s underlings haven’t done what could be called a “heck of a job” fighting against the tide of misconceptions.
The FACT is though that over 100,000 people now have health insurance due to the passage of this historic and unprecedented law. The web site is vastly improved and getting better daily. The corporate ‘news’ can’t keep spinning these facts as a negative forever. Eventually a sufficient number of enrollies will accumulate and we will have what in economics is referred to as a ‘virtuous cycle’. As more and more members of the general population discover that their friends, neighbors, and family members have affordable, high quality healthcare, but they themselves do not, suddenly millions will rush FORWARD to harvest the untold benefits of this vital program. I’ll wager that President Obama, clever ‘long game’ player he has proven himself to be, intentionally allowed for the initial roll-out to be less than optimal so as to place egg upon the smirking faces of his critics just prior to the critical November 2014 elections. Imagine the humiliation which awaits the sewage spewing talking sphincters of faux ‘news’ when in say, September 2014, millions and millions of new enrollies begin excitedly clamoring to vote for the one party which truly stands for the less fortunate in our society?
It’s almost game over now for the teabag extreme right. The day of reckoning approaches and what we complain about today (the ACA) is in FACT a trap set to spring upon our enemies. A trap they don’t even realize has been set!
Blaming President Obama isn’t the answer. Did President Obama design this deplorable dystopia? NO!!! He has been trying to fix it but unfortunately the forces of the teabag extreme right have been subverting his efforts now for over five damn years! President Obama is up against a terrible foe, a foe hundreds of years in the making and ‘people’ like you refuse to acknowledge his efforts to combat this foe based on five years of history!
Choose your enemies more carefully. The FACT is that President Obama has laid the groundwork for transformation. The effects of his plans may not be immediately apparent, however future citizens shall know them well.
Do you need help in focusing on the REAL enemy?
A teabagger I’m familiar with at work (unfortunately) sent me the following link this morning. I began looking at it. After about two minutes, I filled my britches in a fit of all consuming fury and a rage so intense as to provoke projectile vomiting.
This is our enemy…….
This vile assault against the general population ought to provoke a general uprising. The question is however, will it? The obvious answer is yes, however I fear that President Obama’s magnificent efforts to heal the American economy may have the unintended consequence of suppressing revolutionary change. On the surface, having our unemployment situation so dramatically improved from when he first assumed power appears to be nearly miraculous, and a clear indication that his various initiatives to promote progress have benefited the vast majority of those inhabiting the space within our homelands borders.
A more keen consideration however reveals the dark side of success; The hard fought achievement of economic progress bestowed upon the general population reduces the political impetus required to fuel action in addressing teabaggist assaults against fundamental decency.
As Progressives, we are now faced with the dilemma of how to sufficiently agitate for change (or in this case against change?) within an environment where the typical citizen now understands his or her own personal situation to be one of relative comfort? A problem we face today is one of general comfort, comfort that births complacency and apathy. The general population has grown accustomed to the spoils of effective and successful Federal Family benevolence. With an unemployment rate now hovering at a mere 7%, the number of citizens harmed by this vile, mean spirited, and in most cases racist proposal to deny the less fortunate much needed financial assistance will likely become manifest due simply to the small number of citizens affected.
Our only hope now is in the fact that the Federal Reserve may very well ‘taper’ soon. I believe this may in fact be President Obama (the chess players) ace in the hole. A December ‘taper’ will collapse the economy, send the unemployment rate skyrocketing upward, instigating widespread panic and anger. This panic and anger would nicely segue into ACTION! Action that can be channeled directly into a fury which shall propel us to victory in these critical upcoming elections of November 2014!
Take heart all, realize that even in such seemingly hopeless times as these we face, our leader has a plan, and it is a good plan. A plan to move us FORWARD to victory!
It’s heartening to see people find the courage to stand up for what they believe in and take to the streets. This story does however cause me some bitter sadness in so far as it reminds me of the ‘occupy wall street’ protest here in our nation. It’s truly devastating that the teabaggers seized our [...]
And this is precisely why we must assist President Obama by removing all teabaggist enemies of progress from the house come November 2014. The anti- Federal Family teabaggist despise our leader and have prevented him from helping us go FORWARD. Besides, kicking out the teabaggers will be a real kick in the sack to the [...]
This makes me SICK! The fact that Google tries to play both sides of the coin, both supporting anti-government forces and the NSA really makes me SICK and proves that they don’t care who’s side they are on as long as they score a buck!!
Pisses me off.
The premise of this ‘diary’ is far more darkly amusing than all but a very few persons have the ability (willingness? courage?) to recognize.
Far more is “disappeared” than merely Snowden/NSA material.
Life in the cave is far different indeed than life outside.
erik commented on the blog post Health, Not Age, Is What Matters for the ACA Risk Pools
Well on the surface at least what you say is true and sensible. Having ‘government’ pay for ‘healthcare’ within such an insanely corrupt and SICKENINGLY twisted system though truly makes ZERO sense at all. What you propose is in actual practice merely the ‘government’ stealing in order to support a vile and downright evil pharmaceutical based corporate crime syndicate coupled with a hellishly disgusting and similarly corrupt ‘food’ system (MONSANTO).
Adding layers of fraud at this point only encourages more fraud.
North Korea at least is somewhat more transparent.
The prison we live in is actually worse because not only is the population that much greater, making the collective nature of the crime even more damaging to humanity in magnitude, the level of sophistication merely confirms the capacity for evil enabled by the absurd consolidation of power that centralized authority permits.
Well, we all know the true cause of this misery. The Federal Family is engaged in a fierce battle against the republiturds and their vile, deranged quest to increase poverty, promote divisiveness within the general population, and to otherwise thwart Federal Family initiatives to ensure that appropriate levels of social justice be made manifest. Central [...]

It truly baffles the mind to reflect upon the horrifying lack of concern most ‘people’ show for the savage realities of climate change.
