mgloraine commented on the diary post Tim DeChristopher Interview – Climate Change Is The Context of Our Times by Dennis Trainor Jr.
Not likely. Pollution billionaires own and control every government in the world today and they consider divine-right plutocracy to be the natural order of things. Why would their descendents feel any differently?
What’s this guy complaining about? The SCOTUS already gave him the go-ahead to buy as many politicians as he can afford. The problem with these fascist fat-cats is that they are not content to be obscenely wealthy. They are not happy unless everyone else is living in abject poverty. It is not enough for them to own several congress-people. They must also see to it that all non-billionaires are disenfranchised.
But we already know this. My real question is: why are the idiotic notions of sociopathic nincompoops with money reported with slavish devotion by the news media? What makes this guy’s stupid ideas newsworthy?
mgloraine commented on the blog post 2.3 Million Strong Petition Opposing Obama Budget Dropped Off At White House
Doesn’t matter if there were 300 million signatures on the petition. 0bama works for the .01 percent, and they want to steal every penny from Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid in order to make themselves richer at the expense of working tax-payers. 0bama supports that idea 1000%.
If 0bama could execute Manning today, he would do so. This kid is going to spend his life in prison for being a whistle-blower. Another 0bama legacy.
mgloraine commented on the blog post Why A Tax Hike Today Won’t Be a Tax Hike Tomorrow: a New Baseline
These technicalities only matter in the minds of Democrats. Republicans will have the same objectives tomorrow as they do today and have had since 1980: to destroy the US government, to loot the economy for their own enrichment, and to impoverish and enslave all non-billionaire Americans. It is a serious mistake to regard the GOP as a political party when they are in fact a criminal gang. 0bama and the Dems in Congress refuse to acknowledge this, however, and are very eager to give away all of Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, unemployment insurance, food stamps, school lunches, etc., in the hope of getting a cut of the loot from their corporate bosses. There is no way to oppose the fascist Republican takeover when the Vichy Democrats are so completely committed to helping them obliterate the last vestiges of government of, by, and for the People.
I wish I believed that Obama et al. were poised to do the right thing for the environment and those of us who inhabit it. But I don’t. The fossil-fuel pushers will wave their magic checkbooks and every American politician, including Obama, will do their bidding, just as they always have.
mgloraine commented on the blog post Gang of Eight Discusses Six-Month Punt for Fiscal Cliff
0bama will have his god-damned “Grand Bargain”, literally at all costs. It will be our Democratic “Hope” and “Change” president who will kill Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid in exchange for…what? Kick-backs from fat-cats. Ther prosperity of a nation doesn’t count when personal wealth is the true objective.
mgloraine commented on the diary post DNC Platform Change Vote Was Predetermined On Teleprompter, Delegate Voting Was Merely For Show by TheCallUp.
Oh, I see, “both sides do it”! So it must be okay to ignore the will of the people when fat-cats’ money is at stake, right? Obama and Romney BOTH want American citizens to be subservient to the ideology of Netanyahu and the Likudniks, because the American tax dollars which are given away to Israel [...]

So this means I can kidnap and torture my own enemies and it’s all hunkey-dorey?? Cool!! I’ve got a list…
mgloraine commented on the diary post Post Office Shock Doctrine: The Road to Privatization by wendydavis.
Reagan, Bush, Clinton, Bush, Obama; the Enemies of American democracy, and the agents of plutocratic, sociopathic, extremism. The American postal service is written into our Constitution, but if there’s no identifiable ultra-right-wing fat-cat making a profit from some activity, then the Constitution doesn’t count to our politicians, including (perhaps especially) 0bama and his henchmen. Constitution [...]
mgloraine commented on the blog post Medical Marijuana Rescheduling to Go Before D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals
Common sense and scientific evidence don’t count for anything in our political “system”. The outcome will be determined by which deep-pocketed lobbyists have paid off the judges. Hint: there are no lobbyists representing medical marijuana patients.
mgloraine commented on the blog post Glenn Greenwald on Challenging the Surveillance State
What can be done? The US government has more Gestapos than we even know about. The FBI, CIA, NSA, DEA, DHS, DIA, and several corporations working as contractors (Blackwater, DynCorp, etc.) keep all Americans under surveillance at all times. We are merely serfs in a corporate-fascist police state, and if we get out of line, we can be dragged off to a government dungeon to be tortured to death, or just summarily executed as “suspected terrorists”. How do we fight that? Re-elect 0bama? Ha! 0bama has expanded the power of those Gestapos more than his idol Dick Cheney ever did. Appeal to Congress? The Supreme Court? I would laugh, but it’s really not funny. American politicians are the most corrupt gangsters on Earth.
I guess it’s important to know how bad things have gotten in this country, but it would be helpful if there were some sort of plan for fixing the situation. I can’t think of one short of a revolution.
Strictly personal opinion, of course, but Chris Hayes is worth watching on both Saturday AND Sunday. Possibly the best, or perhaps the only good weekend jabber-fest going. Not the “usual suspects” week after week.

USA = Police State
This is the way 0bama wants it.

Too bad our votes DON’T count, when it’s Republicans counting the votes.
mgloraine commented on the blog post Obama Still Silent on Civil Rights Activists Dying in Bahrain
0bama doesn’t care about civil rights in America; why would he care about civil rights in Bahrain?
0bamaCo’s only concerns about Bahrain are whether the ruling oligarchs will continue to buy our products, like tear gas, armored personnel carriers, etc. Panetta and Betrayus have some weaponized drones standing by to obliterate any of the locals who don’t clap loud enough for the oligarchs. Anything for a buck, and screw the little people.
The US government hates democracy and loves dictators who crush populist movements wherever they may arise. The global 99% are aware of this. They don’t “hate us for our freedoms”, they hate us for destroying THEIR freedoms by supporting their autocrats.
0bama doesn’t care, as long as he and his pals are getting paid.
The entire trial is nothing but kabuki. 0bama already declared Manning guilty. He will probably spend the rest of his life in prison as an example to all other potential whistle-blowers.
That’s the way it works now: if the Decider suspects you, your life is forfeit.
“…The government could have chosen policies that would have protected the middle class…” There are no big-money lobbyists representing the middle class since the labor unions have been crushed or marginalized. Congress and the White House only respond to offers of money or the threat of that money being withheld or delivered to their political opponents. [...]
mgloraine commented on the blog post Boehner Maneuvers for Conference Committee on Transportation Bill
“…69 Democrats, including leadership figures James Clyburn and John Larson, voted for the bill…”
Pollutocrats own Congress. 0bama won’t veto anything; they own him, too. Democrats pretend to be concerned about working Americans, women’s rights, the environment, etc. That’s just their schtick. No amount of toxic sludge or carcinogenic filth in the air or water supply will prevent them from taking the lobbyist’s bribes, just like their Republican pals.
Our national motto shouldn’t be “In God We Trust”, it should be “Anything For A Buck”.
mgloraine commented on the blog post US Soldier Blows Whistle on Photos of Troops Posing with Corpses in Afghanistan
…A “criminal investigation” into the photos has been launched…
That means the military will be investigating the guy who provided the photos to the LA Times, NOT the people appearing in the photos. The “crime” which will be punished is the whistle-blowing, not the atrocities committed by the troops in the field.
