    Yeow. Y’mean Pat PissPants Leahy, who “kept his powder dry” on the Judiciary Committee and who greased in Alito and Roberts? PissPants, who sponsored SOPA and got his ass handed to him by Aaaron Swartz and a remarkable coalition of DFHs and technos? Or Peter Welch, who’s the 47th wealthiest man in Congress, and whose [...]

    Uhhhh…. snark, right?

    Gumby gets what Gumby wants. Full stop. Waiting for progressive Gumby to appear has become as shameful as climate change denyin’.

    Just sayin’.

    Exactly so. Americans have lost the experience of self-determination. It begins in K-12, then solidifies in the workplace. The triumph of 20th Century fascism is intentionally masked by materialism, careerism, and consumerism, and no less so among educated, self-professed progressives. Advertising IS propaganda, kids,and the more you long to look like the actors in cutesy [...]

  • I suppose we should all thank Sen. Pat Leahy (D-Vichy) for keeping our sacred powder dry on both ScrotLito and RoboRoberts.

    The analogy of a high school student council on perpetual bended knee to the superior might of the Admin is, of course, sadly apt. Same kind of smarmy characters–hey, Suck Schumer, this text’s for U, asshole–as a bad HS bromance.

    Nasty, nasty joke on history. Sure to be ending badly when the cheap goods run out.

    Neither VT PR nor NH PR took on DN! when listener surveys revealed a strong interest in the show. “Too controversial”, was how VPR put it. In the meantime, the local family-owned radio station, WDEV, not only airs DN!, but has four hours daily of local affairs call-in programming that beats PR right out of [...]

    X3. Dr. King had more contempt for, and distrust of, the phony liberals. In the end, when their quiche latte brunch is disturbed by the threat of too much equality, they run squealing for the loving embrace of their corporate masters. The Roman Senate in the days of Julius, indeed.

    Goldman Sachs, stealing our country and Willie Suttoning the globe! Hell, let’s call UBL a CIA plant used to fire a warning shot across GS’s bows, only for his handlers to discover that the Goldman gang DOES in fact, run things around here, like Dickhead Durbin said…Blowback? The GS claque quietly arranges wars of aggression, and epire building, done like slightly more sophisticated Nazis on steroids, as a main course.

    Drone Killer Prez is a living embodiment of this theory. Can’t be perceived as “soft” on teh manufactured brownz terror. Or “soft” on your traditional base of minorities, women, and working people. By your actions are you known–our punditry and political employees enable and comfort the rich criminalistic sociopaths, the weapons-building faceless cohort,the militant screaming [...]

  • DD–That was me, yelling at the radio. “Bernanke!!!??? Chastising banks for sitting on the trillions of dollars HE enthusiastically shoveled their way ‘to foam the runway’???!!!! Why not have actually attached some conditions to those trillions of OURS, ya douchebag thief-helper?

    Oh. Right. The system works fine. For them. Why change? A little PR window-dressing, some faux finger-wagging, and poof! It’s all good.

    That Legacy(TM) is getting a right good buffing, you betcha!

    Yeah. Make that old motorcycles. Ix-nay on the Insolent Chariot-kays (h/t to Vance Packard) Another corporate-sponsored addiction.

  • Yeah. Rall’s series graphically points up how Amerikan proggies self-censor/negotiate/appease/concede themselves right out of relevance and effectiveness. The galaxy of non-profit organizations were created here in large part to corral potential dissidents out of radical militancy, where their intelligence and dissatisfaction were so effective. In short, give ‘em money and some security, to keep ‘em [...]

    Yeah, the avalanche of American collapse is really picking up steam now. The crowd sees the wires in the Punch and Judy show, though I wonder where they still find all those screamin’ idjits at the campaign fooferaws. I think the CU squad is using 2012 as a fine-tuning dry run. Their cash is truly [...]

    Answer me this, Obama apologist douchebags: How in the sparkle pony fuck does a sitting president NOT get to forbid torture as unofficial American state policy? Or NOT direct his Justice Department to investigate without fear or favor crimes committed by financiers(see Kennedy, Robert, on dealing with LCN)? Or bringing to prosecution, to the full extent of the law, those responsible for documented illegalities surrounding the BP spill? Or NOT using a back door coalition of international interests to topple Qaddafi, in violation of both US and international law?

    On which president’s watch is the suspension of rule of law not just OK, but GRRRRRREAT? Why, a Democratic president’s, of course!

    You’ll get the fucking you deserve,no doubt about that, cheerleaders. The rest of us, with our intentional communities, sustainability, real conservationism, underground economy, and neighbor-helping hippy-ass sparkle pony-ing will also get the fucking you deserve.

    For the record? Dr. King was a way better human being than me or just about all of you. And he sayeth, conscience, not expedience. So stick it, parochial twerps.
