hackworth1 commented on the blog post Elizabeth Warren Responds To Third Way Attack By Asking Wall Street To Disclose Ties
Eliz. Warren is a warmonger who happens to have said some good things before and is saying some good things now.
How can she walk back her support for the GWOT? Can’t be done.
She’s kinda like the Campaign-mode Obama.

You can spot the Fox News coached right wing Christian Zealots this time of year with their gregarious and sarcastic Merry Christmas salutations.
I usually reply in kind – shouting Merry Christmas, you focking luddite.

The Labour Party represents labor, of course.
It does not represent the Security Surveillance Police State. It represents the interests of working people, common citizens and their right to privacy.
Except that is all bollocks.

First mid term wipe out of Democrats was orchestrated by Obama and his embrace of Republicans.
Recall that Voter self-identification as Republican was under 30 percent at its nadir.
Obama strengthened his enemies, gave them water when they were choking and gave them head at the table.

Interviewer: I like the state to look up my arsehole. Why don’t you?
Very astute. Are you saying that Putin’s antigay rhetoric and policies make him politically appealing to Islam? If so, is that Putin’s motivation for being a gay basher? Notwithstanding the above (concurrent with?) do you expect a signficant leftward movement in Islam in a generation? If so will that be soon enough to avoid the [...]
“My” priest (closeted gay) is still intent on beating on gays and abortion clinics and maintaining the most conservative dogma – regardless of this new hippie pope.
This guy was waxing Socialistic and look what happened to him:

Six members of the Walton family appear on the Forbes 400 list of the wealthiest Americans. Christy Walton, widow of the late John Walton, leads the clan at No. 6 with a net worth of $25.3 billion as of March 2012. She is also the richest woman in the world for the seventh year in [...]
During Eisenhower’s presidency the effective tax rate on the exceedingly rich was what, 96%?
To clarify. The tax was progressive and tiered. Nobody paid 96 percent on their overall total income.
Interestingly, Fox News and Limbaugh blame Kennedy for the Eisenhower Income Tax Rates (which are considered to be the highest rates in modern times).
Ergo, the wingnuts say that Kennedy made the highest income tax rates.
I’m all for spending, but I think we are learning (God, I hope so) that throwing money at the exact same people that wrecked the American and world economy will not fix the American and world economy.
Inasmuch as we among the proletariat make this realization and recognize the simple and obvious truth in it, our leaders do not and will not – or pretend to know not. They “don’t get it” for two main reasons:
1. The contributions they make now in butressing the status quo will make them very wealthy in the near future.
2. If they don’t play ball, they end up like JFK (and everyone – guided by the MSM – will believe it was the fickle finger of fate).
Interesting recent development wrt Libertarian/Teabagger Brigade taking up the JFK conspiracy mantle. This unholy alliance is (as they are led) based on JFK’s support of the 1st Ammendment. That they set aside their relentless State’s Rights credo and racism, to do this is an amazing contortion, but contortions is what they do. As a result, [...]

hackworth1 commented on the blog post White House Photographers Protest Most Control Freak Presidential Administration Ever
“The Press” should not be surprised by the scripted bullshit it helped to standardize. “The Press” photographed Dubya in a flight suit on an Aircraft Carrier off Catalina Island, staging the position of the ship so as to appear to be out to sea. Then it photographed the “Mission Accomplished” Banner and helped in “crafting” the message that the war in Iraq had ended.
That was over a decade ago.
When you participate in a fraud, you end up participating in a fraud. Hope they like the cocktail weenies and “the access”.

Bananas Holder is a pillar of moral virtue. The die was cast when Holder defended United Fruit Company against the workers it poisoned and gunned down in cold blood.
That was Hotel Heiress, Leona Helmsley.
Like Martha Stewart, she was made an example of by the PTB. Once in a while they throw one of their own to the wolves.
The Free Market is a sham, of course. That The Market is a centerpiece of Neolib Doctrine makes the whole thing – Neoliberalism – a sham.
The Market is corrupt and corrupted from top to bottom. The invisible hand (of the Free Market) is mythological. Is it not?
