For a generation, the Old White Guy establishment has been stoking fears of the monster under our bed (people of color, mexicans stealing your jobs, arabs, etc).
As it turns out, the monster was in our government, banks and energy companies. It ate our retirement and home values while pointing the same finger at people who did nothing wrong. It gave us perpetual war, rotting infrastructure and minimal prospects for a decent future.
The monster wears a suit, has perfect hair, and never answers a question. We were not afraid of the real monster.
8 years in, and things are looking (really really) bad for people who elected those Democrats.
If only I could send this sandwich back….

Democrap….Republicon….really, what’s the difference?
It’s all kabuki, the Deep State does not hold elections. Just go watch TV.
….Wakes up (yawn), big stretch, scratches tummy…
Lets see, it’s thursday….wonder who we’re bombing today?…..
Perpetual war since what, 2003? I’m proud (not) to be an amurican
Hillary waiting for her turn, can’t hardly wait to do some bombing, preferably with “lazers”…
PS, my vote counts
War is our jobs program,
Armaments our economic stimulus,
Jet fuel the sweet nectar we squeeze from Mother Earth.
Work, Consume, Obey
I always think a big contributor to this, receiving not nearly enough scorn, our Corporate Media. I felt this starting back in the 90′s. Wondering about the media obsession with distractions, missing white girls, Michael Jackson, etc. All the real things going on, they wouldn’t speak of them. And they seemed to be cooperating. It [...]

I’m basking in the Hope and Change.
I chuckled this morning when I heard on the radio that protesters had thrown urine on police in Ferguson.
…You can beat us, spray us with tear gas and rubber bullets, detain us for hours without charges, shout obscenities while pointing guns in our faces…
But we can still throw our pee-pees on you….And boy do they STINK!
(In my Jimmy Cagney voice) Take that copper!….Spa-Lash!!
PS-Stop Resisting ;-)

So much for “fighting them over there so we don’t have to fight them here…” How ironic.
I’m more afraid of cops than terrorists.
It also shows our incredible hypocrisy…
As if we would allow some other country to roam our airspace, randomly assassinating “terrorists”. Perhaps “captialists”, gasp!

It’s hard to know the extent of the problem, since depressed people don’t go around sharing their feelings. Like an iceberg, you mostly can’t see it because….
I had/have the same struggle, medication has helped, but it’s still there, waiting. I look back at some of the drastic things I was pondering a couple of years ago. Hanging by a thread, I worried what would become of my pet. But then fate dealt me a very kind gesture. I have a good job, but without it, the line separating me from “them” would disappear. Our new economy would be the final push.
People are walking among us, on a thin beam of daily existence, with a pit below. They are invisible, and won’t ask for help. I don’t have any answers, I just know there are a lot of them.
If only healthcare.gov was a 20 year old male, he could rectify this problem with a couple of hellfire missiles. That seems to be his hammer of choice. Empty platitudes not particularly useful here.
Meet today’s version of the WPA. Instead of building things here, we destroy them elsewhere. Keeps young men from drinking and getting into trouble.

I’m wondering if our own Pravda will have the same fixation with nipples, missing white girls, and marital infidelity? I’m looking forward to less Paula Dean and more State of the Republic.

Right on time….here come the lawyers. Things will get even more f*cked up now, which is not totally surprising.

Photo is perfect and opportune, I was wondering how he can do that.

I vividly remember watching that video. I was at work, had been reading about the incident, but would not usually watch video at work. It was very upsetting, and I turned a corner that day. Watching the van being loaded with wounded, knowing there were children inside…as parent I watched in horror not knowing what [...]
