hoopless commented on the blog post We Just Have to Take Holder’s Word That He Recused Himself From AP Case
Increasingly, I’m thinking the entire Obama administration should be replaced with a small electric appliance that generates a random series of farts and flashing lights.
Our victim-based society craves more places to “never forget”. Admiring soldiers whose noble service is squandered by our corrupt leaders….that’s our fuel. Perpetual war is our jobs program. All the kids who will be ground to bits in Syria, or Iran, or the next place….better find someplace to put them. Even the landfills are getting [...]
Name recognition, sure.
But to win that seat she would have to me MUCH more:
Disregard the turtle, get on with her life.

Man named after washing cycle,
Poop on work of guy named Michael.
Yes, drone wars are coming. People will shoot at them, resulting in new laws hastily passed. People will jam them, resulting in new drones to guard the first ones. At the same time, others will hack the data (local cops using “123″ for password). Many will prefer not being surveilled, and take measures to that [...]
“- and for what?”
Exactly, only a handful of people actually benefitted from this. They run energy companies and defense contractors. If you ponder how just a few could benefit from such an catastrophe….you have the very definition of evil.
Unfortunately, these are the people running our country. Either put up with it or perform a hard reset.
Be sure to keep an eye on my chimney as well-
I’m gonna burn a bunch of old socks and newspapers when I don’t care the least bit about this. You won’t have to wait long.
If the smoke is kinda greyish brown, it means I have lots of newspapers….

Promising to nuke Washington DC will arouse strong feelings, both for and against…here in this country.
Thank you for this excellent piece, I found it very thought provoking. It’s true, people are feeling increasingly powerless. Despite what the teevee tells them, they see the big thumb on the scale. They see hippie protesters dragged off and beaten while bankster criminals are called “job creators”. They pay more taxes than facebook, to [...]
I would offer a third possibility…
Every time a large asteroid unexpectedly streaks across the sky, we can keep our fingers crossed, hoping it’s headed right for the Capital Building.
hoopless commented on the blog post Restricting Drones Before Use of the Technology for Total Surveillance Becomes Normal
I have wondered if Americans will put up with the level of surveillance that Brits are used to. I think at some point, people will fight the cameras. A single bullet seems cheaper than a fixed camera. Easy to shoot out, takes 2 workers and a truck to replace. I can imagine drones being shot at by various paranoid persons. I see a conflict there, and once again our gun culture will come into play. How long until different types of drones are shooting it out over the park?

Repealing the authorization?…Ha!. Good one. The GWOT is basically the only jobs program we have. A handful of defense contractors are the giant toddlers sucking at Treasury’s sumptuous breast. They get really annoyed when the milk slows down, cry and scratch, even sometimes biting. Our “leaders” see no choice but to create wars to keep [...]

yet another perfect example of our distorted values and world view.
We are supposed to admire all that killin’ done over there, but be shocked that he was killed in such a manner here…?
I’ve seen them both…
People that just go around being total assholes, and…
People that swear they are doing “God’s work”.
Difficult distinction. Often harder to spot a toupee’
hoopless commented on the blog post As Gun Safety Debate Heats Up, Danger in Trying to Solve Wrong Problem
Don’t underestimate the newsmedia’s role in this, I think they share a significant part of the blame.
The breathless, non-stop coverage, the trolling all the usual social media troughs, talking to friends and neighbors, and finally the pictures of the victims…It is all twisted infotainment served up by a diseased and useless mainstream media.
They are fulfilling a promise to disturbed individuals….immortality, becoming part of the twisted fabric of our time. People ignored you before, no longer….
hoopless commented on the blog post “You furnish the pictures and I’ll furnish the war.”
For the third year in a row, I purchased NOTHING. Not a single thing, absolutely zero cents added to some wretched total. I hope this movement catches on, “Buy Nothing Friday”.
A small thing, but I’m canceling out a single idiot waiting in line somewhere…
hoopless commented on the blog post Petraeus Affair Shows Dominant Power of Government Surveillance State
It’s a quandary…
I believe that if I sat down at my home computer and started doing google searches for “how to build a dirty bomb”, or “how to poison the most people easily”, soon there would be a knock at my door….
The interesting part is that were that NOT the case, some people would complain and ask “How could this happen? Someone should be paying attention, this whole disaster could have been averted…”
I think we want to have it both ways: Be shocked when we are surveilled, but expect such surveillance to magically avert daily tragedies.

Steven Colbert summed it up well:
Should Senator Mourdock find himself out of a job, he shouldn’t fret…It’s what God intended.
hoopless commented on the blog post Transit Closures Cause Transportation Nightmare in New York City
You alter the very world you live on with machines of convenience, never heading the warnings.
Now with a vivid demonstration of your folly, you start to talk about “solutions”…and one of those solutions is…building a big wall around NYC.
Pathetic indeed. Go ahead, build your stupid wall. Like children at the beach, your wall will not slow the angry ocean you have cultivated.
