kafka commented on the blog post Right Wing’s Latest Target: Poor Children Who Need Food
Poor children just need the “mental and emotional drive” to stop being poor?
Well sure, and don’t forget they need wealthier parents, too. I mean, if they had any brains, they would have been more careful about choosing their parents.

comprehensive immigration reform
AKA more cheap labor for Wall Street (which wrote the bill) and more poorly educated voters for neoliberal Democratic whores to jerk around.
kafka commented on the blog post In Wake Of Ferguson Protests White House Will Review Militarization Of Police Programs
It’ll be like the phony baloney bs “reviews” of NSA, etc. Nice when you can be your own judge and jury.
In fact, even the identities of the people tortured are redacted. Really? Why would the government care if we know the names of the people we brutalized?
Because knowing who they are would humanize them. Dehumanizing certain people is the first step to getting the sheep to accept what “our” government is doing to [...]
kafka commented on the diary post 15,000 March Across Staten Island to Protest Eric Garner’s Murder by Police by wendydavis.
Unbelievable somebody could die that way at the hands of the police. Am I the only one who thinks the police are becoming more violent because of the sanctioning of torture and murder that’s been a part of our Great War on Terror(tm)?
So well put.
2 corporate whores running against each other. Why wouldn’t it be close?
Of course another reason women left the workforce is that many households back then didn’t need 2 breadwinners. Today many do, and still can’t make ends meed.
Unfortunately, my plan was dashed when Hill hit the stage early for the very staged “interview”, and what was frighteningly revealed to my weary eyes was a vision of our future for the next eight years
And so there’s no mistake about what that future is: “The Ready for Hillary fundraising team includes scores of President [...]
Iraq War III
Makes perfect sense.

kafka commented on the diary post Ebola outbreak is “moving faster than our efforts to control it.” WHO Director-General by spocko.
“The State Department did not name the two individuals, nor indicate where they will be taken, saying only that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention was facilitating their transfer on a non-commercial flight and and would maintain strict isolation upon arrival in the United States.”
Sounds like the Feds making the decision.

kafka commented on the blog post In No-Fly List Lawsuit by American Muslims, DOJ Argues ‘No Constitutional Right Not to Become an Informant’
With no accountability for decisions because the government reflexively invokes terrorism, national security and the “state secrets privilege” to stifle lawsuits, there is not much in the way of violating a persons’ rights that the government cannot get away with
Absolutely correct. Constitutional rights can be taken away by the government invoking the magic words. What now?
kafka commented on the blog post No Labels Document Shows Politics As Usual Strategy
…a group backed by Big Business wants a Congress controlled by Republicans so the Democrat in the White House will cut more pro-Big Business deals.
Actually Big Business doesn’t care which party controls Congress. They just want whores. Landrieu (D-LA) makes the grade:

kafka commented on the blog post Democrats Are Practically Begging for Obama to be Impeached
When you have gotten to a point where the political incentives would actually favor a party for indirectly trying to get their own President impeached, you have to start questioning if there is something wrong with the structure of your democracy
Yes, it’s just a ploy for $$$. But don’t worry about “the structure of your democracy. It’s not a democracy, and it sure as hell isn’t yours.

The Obama administration does not care if investigative journalism is collateral damage
It’s not “collateral damage”. It’s a prime target.
kafka commented on the blog post FISA Court Judges Signing Off On NSA Surveillance Programs Invest In Verizon Stock
Sounds like a great investment to me. Through the end of 2012, 33,949 warrant requests for electronic surveillance submitted to the FISA “court”, only 11 were denied. Even Stalin didn’t have a rubber stamp that big.
