Beware of the Obama hype. What 'change' in America really means :: :: informazione dall'Iraq occupato :: news from occupied Iraq :: - it

"Yes, Obama’s election is historic, a symbol of great change to many. But it is equally true that the American elite has grown adept at using the black middle and management class. The courageous Martin Luther King recognised this when he linked the human rights of black Americans with the human rights of the Vietnamese, then being slaughtered by a liberal Democratic administration. And he was shot.

In striking contrast, a young black major serving in Vietnam, Colin Powell, was used to 'investigate' and whitewash the infamous My Lai massacre."

Palin's great because she gave me money.

O.K. here it is. I like Palin as a governor because she gave my family $4800.00 in additional rebates on the taxes the state collected on the oil that the f*&king oil companies made in obscene profits this year.

Yeah it's a drag that the rest of the country doesn't get a rebate on the mineral resources that are extracted from their states, but if you really don't like it... get up stand up!

You have no one to blame but your own suck up to the illusion that you might be a rich puke someday too.

" When I make a million dollars a year I don't want to have to pay 50% of my income to taxes."

Of course you don't you idiot! That's why millionaires hire accountants... THE LOOP HOLES!!!!

But I digress, Palin as a v.p. is insane. Dan Quayle would've made three times the potential president that Caribou Barbie would make.

And I say that as someone that wouldn't kick her out of bed for eating crackers... even if it was her dog.

Dissident Voice : Fernando Lugo Presidency Brings Hope in Paraguay

Dissident Voice : Fernando Lugo Presidency Brings Hope in Paraguay:

"That night I went to the free concert in front of the National Palace. The high point was the arrival of Chavez and Lugo, who took seats in the audience and eventually took the stage, not with speeches, but with poetry recitals and songs.

Chavez, of course, went first, reciting a long poem to Bolivar, “Por aqui
pasa,” by Venezuelan Alberto Torrealba. Chavez was accompanied by the quintet of Venezuelan singer and member of parliament, Cristobal Jimenez. Later, Chavez returned with President Lugo to sing a reggae version of Mercedes Sosa’s song, “Todo Cambia,” arranged by Lugo’s head of Security, Marcial Congo, a long-haired, bearded man who looked to be pushing sixty. The group accompanying them was led by rock musician Rolando Chaparro who had begun his set with a soulful rock guitar version of Paraguay’s National Anthem,"

Jeeze... I wish we could see an inauguration like this in the usa.

Palast - The House I Live In

Palast - The House I Live In:

"Howard Zinn, a shining historian on our hill, reminds us, 'It should be understood that the children of Iraq, of China, and of Africa, children everywhere in the world, have the same right to life as American children.'
Damn right, they do. That's what Jefferson meant by 'inalienable.'
And they won't get their rights to life and liberty from Osama's Caliphate of oil states or China's money-crazed 'Communism' nor half of Africa's neo-colonial presidential Draculas or the puppet princes installed today in Iraq by George Bush.
Bush is so far away from his refugee loser roots that he just doesn't get what it is to be American. So he steals the one thing that every American is handed off the boat: a chance. When they take away your Social Security and overtime and tell you sleeper cells are sleeping under your staircase, you don't take a chance, you lose your chance, and the land of opportunity becomes a landscape of fear and suspicion, an armed madhouse.
You want to say that George Bush is an evil sonovabitch? I'd go further: he's UN-AMERICAN."

Wanda’s arguments are generally correct, but she leaves out the fact that women are psychopaths as well as men, just in lesser numbers. Golda Mier? Margaret Thatcher? Eva Peron? Er, ahem, Hillary Clinton? Margaret Sanger? Further, women tend to engage
in non-violent psychopathy, having turned it almost into an art form. Regardless, the violent-prone like Gacy makes the papers, while the female conniver at the office or in politics who destroys her co-workers as she rises to the top is rarely, if ever, mentioned.

The better argument is that “civilization” as we know it is the result of the struggle between psychopaths and otherwise “normal” people. Unfortunately, in both business and government, it is the psychopaths who rise to power, regardless of sex.

The “Court History” of the U.S. is littered with psychopaths as both Presidents and “Captains of Industry”, and we are taught that they are heroes. The General who is the greatest butcher, the President who maneuvered us into war, the C.E.O. who built “THE CORPORATION” through destroying unions and competition - this we are taught to idealize, a role model.

What of the leader of fought for ongoing peace and prosperity? He is little but an afterthought, with little comment except what number he was on our grand list of leaders. It is the Butcher who we adore, who we genuflect to. The “Great Leader”, so we’ve been told. “The Good War.”

Read Loboweski’s “Political Ponerology” and Dr. Martha Stouts “The Paranoia Switch” and “The Sociopath Next Door”, as well as the works of Dr. Hare. Read Naomi Klein’s “The Shock Doctrine”. “They” control everything.

"A statewide Cronkite/Eight poll finds that only 38 percent of Arizona voters would vote for McCain. 28 percent said they would vote for Obama, and 34 percent were undecided. Choosing Hillary Clinton as his vice-presidential running mate could cost Barack Obama about 5 percentage points in the state, according to the poll."

Joe Bageant: Old Dogs and Hard Time

Joe Bageant: Old Dogs and Hard Time: "Governments and states exist to control people, and for no other reason. If justice is achieved somewhere in the process, it's an added bonus. But control above all else is necessary for modern civilization to exist. Population grows by the minute, increasing social pressure on humanity. More rules and more control are required to keep order. Order is defined as the way we think others should behave -- or imagine them to misbehave. We support the state's police machinery and massive incarceration of our fellow citizens, so long as they are being imprisoned for the right reasons. They should pay. Every action in a capitalist world must produce money. So they should pay in cash."

AxisofLogic/ Palestine

AxisofLogic/ Palestine: "Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter has said Israel holds at least 150 nuclear weapons, the first time a U.S. president has publicly acknowledged Israel's atomic arsenal.

Asked at a news conference at Wales's Hay literary festival on Sunday how a future U.S. president should deal with the Iranian nuclear threat, Carter put the risk in context by listing atomic weapons held globally.

'The U.S. has more more than 12,000 nuclear weapons, the Soviet Union (Russia) has about the same, Great Britain and France have several hundred, and Israel has 150 or more. We have a phalanx of enormous weaponry ... not only of enormous weaponry but of rockets to deliver those missiles on a pinpoint accuracy target,' he said, according to a transcript of his remarks."

All have internalized the corporate/state process so thoroughly they do not even know they are conditioned creatures of the larger machine they have created. Everybody is a patsy for the new corporate global social order of information and commodities -- the well-coiffed talking head on the TV screen, the grotesque delusional audience, and the candidates themselves. All play out their parts as good guys or bad guys or attractive meat puppets in a holographic projection of the hallucination itself called the news, which is presented as a description of reality, thereby reinforcing the hallucination itself."

Dissident Voice : From Kennedy to Obama: Liberalism’s Last Fling: "As their contest for the White House draws closer, watch how, regardless of the inevitable personal smears, Obama and McCain draw nearer to each other. They already concur on America’s divine right to control all before it. “We lead the world in battling immediate evils and promoting the ultimate good,” said Obama. “We must lead by building a 21st-century military . . . to advance the security of all people [emphasis added].” McCain agrees."

Dissident Voice : Media Shit Storms and Heartland Reality

Dissident Voice : Media Shit Storms and Heartland Reality:

"Let’s get to the nub of this thing here: Obama, Hillary and McCain are farting through silk while playing out their roles in our theatrical state’s false drama called presidential elections, while smug and media sanctioned pundits snark from the edge of the proscenium arc of politics, each hoping to draw enough attention to have his or her own proscenium in that national cathedral of the American consciousness — television.

Before too long this earth shaking “incident” will be drowned out by the accumulating noise of the election year. Then even the election’s hoopla will all be wiped away when Oprah Winfrey, in one of her ever grander spectacles of televised largess, gives away the city of Detroit to the sixth grade author of the most heart rending essay on black poverty."

McCain is a dick


McCain ran for the Republican nomination in the 2000 presidential election, but was defeated by another dick, George W. Bush. In the 2008 presidential cycle, McCain was joined in the race by a lazy dick, a Mormon dick, a evangelical dick, a libertarian former gynecologist dick and a dick named Giuliani. After the Mormon dick dropped out in February of 2008, McCain became the presumptive nominee.

Far from actually being a "maverick," the one word that would accurately describe his time in public life is: "asshole." That McCain was able to successfully make himself be thought of as a "maverick" says as much about the press as it does about McCain. That is, one cannot understand how McCain did this without also understanding the delicate psychology of the Washington D. C. press corps.

Most Washington journalists have a deeply internalized sense of self-loathing. They see themselves as cowardly, flaccid, ineffectual, impotent wimps. In this, they're not entirely wrong. They have always secretly admired the asshole jocks who used to push them around in high school. The journalists would console themselves with the soothing affirmation that the assholes were not as smart as they were. They were right, of course, but still, deep down the journalists secretly admired the assholes.

Along comes John McCain -- an asshole, but an asshole who is nice to them, an asshole who comes to back of the plane and jokes around with them and doesn't make them feel unmanly. Why, sometimes, it seemed as if McCain really liked them. A few years of this, and suddenly McCain's not a temperamental, dangerously unstable asshole, he's a "maverick."

But the self-esteem issues of the weakling press notwithstanding, McCain is, in fact, an asshole.
An asshole who wants to be the President of the United States. As an asshole senator, he the sort of guy who says things like:

• "Only an asshole would put a budget together like this!" (to New Mexico Republican Pete Dominici)

• "I'm calling you a fucking jerk!" (to Iowa Republican Senator Chuck Grassley)

• "Fuck you. I know more about this than anybody in the room." (To Texas Republican Senator John Cornyn)

This is why Senator Dominici said in 2000 that "I decided I didn't want this guy anywhere near a trigger." It is presumed by this he meant the nuclear trigger.

McCain is also the sort of guy who would tell the following joke:

Q: Why is Chelsea Clinton so ugly?

A: Her father is Janet Reno.

This is the sort of humor assholes find funny. When he told the joke, Chelsea Clinton was seventeen years old. Some say when you open an attack like this on the looks of someone who did not ask to be thrust into the public eye, you invite similar attacks in your own direction.

Accordingly, this is a photo of McCain's freakish-looking over-plastic-surgery'd wife Cindy:

Scroll down for the freak show

(click on the link above or imagine john mcain hisself in a wig) frogamundo

In speaking about whether he had ever witnessed McCain's notorious temper problem, former Pennsylvania Republican Senator Rick Santorum said, "I don't know anybody in the Senate who hasn't. Everybody has their McCain story."

And if America elects this temperamental, dangerously unstable, angry old asshole, America will have its own McCain story too.

We Are Wide - Eye Witness Reporting on Israel Palestine:

"'We're on a mission from God.'
Jake Blues/John Belushi

'Observe good faith and justice towards all nations; cultivate peace and harmony with all...and passionate attachments for others, should be excluded; and that, in place of them, just and amicable feelings towards all should be cultivated. The nation which indulges towards another a habitual hatred or a habitual fondness is in some degree a slave...a passionate attachment of one nation for another produces a variety of evils.'

10 things every adult should know

Sometimes it's hard to come up with a full-length, balls-to-the-wall rant, but a lot of "too long for Twitter, too short for a whole post" ideas float in and out of my head all the time. Here's 10 things every adult really ought to know, but a lot of people are apparently just too fucking stupid to figure out:

1. Having sex can cause pregnancy. This one seems too obvious to mention, but judging from the number of accidental children in the world, I thought it bore repeating. Nothing is 100% effective against pregnancy except abstinence, or the removal of your ovaries or testicles. (Incidentally, abortion is still legal in the US and most of Europe, just in case.)
2. If you cover your face with piercing jewelry, you may not be able to find a job. This also goes for doing weird things to your hair, and getting tattoos in conspicuous places. And for fuck's sake, don't give me any bullshit about "freedom of expression", you little dumbass. You go right ahead and express yourself all you want, but body modification is not a constitutionally protected belief system. They can't not hire you for being a Jew, but they certainly can not hire you for looking like a fucking freak. (caveat: I have both piercings and tattoos … nothing against tattoos, piercings or fucking freaks. Just don't whine about it when you're treated like one.)

No I did not write this but I've thought about these things at various points in my 50 years of travails... I mean travels.

BTW the fuckin' army is testing some ball busting super cannon up here and every time it goes off my whole house shakes, I'm at least 5 miles from the range. I just hope the jokers crack one of my windows so I can throw a fit. GOD BLESS AMERICA LAND THAT I LOVE....

How the U.S. Just Got Schooled by a 'Rag-Tag' Neighborhood Army in Iraq | War on Iraq | AlterNet

How the U.S. Just Got Schooled by a 'Rag-Tag' Neighborhood Army in Iraq | War on Iraq | AlterNet:

"If you want to know how not to think about Iraq, just start with anything ever said or imagined by Cheney or Bush. Our Commander in Chief declared a week ago when the Iraqi Army first marched into Basra, 'I would say this is a defining moment in the history of a free Iraq.' When the Iraqi Army fled a few days later, he suddenly got very quiet. But anybody could see how deluded the poor fucker is just by all the nonsense he managed to cram into that 15-word sentence. I mean, 'the history of a free Iraq'?"

Cheney says...bush says... does anyone really have to say anything more?

Company 'gives away' Southwest to Mexico

Company 'gives away' Southwest to Mexico: "Navarro said one could argue 'that while Mexico lost the war in 1848, it will probably win it in the 21st century, in terms of the numbers,' 'But that is not a reality based on what Mexico does, it's based on what this country does,' he insisted.

In a 1995 speech to Chicano activists, Navarro said demographic trends are leading to 'a transfer of power' to the ethnic Mexican community in the Southwest. He notes that most studies show that within the next 20 to 30 years Latinos will comprise more than 50 percent of the population of California. This fact, and other cultural and social developments, are opening the door for 'self-determination' and even 'the idea of an Aztlan,' he said in his speech."

Right on, I can't wait to visit Atzlan, the land that I love.

Factor military duty into criticism -- National Government, The White House, Lyndon Baines Johnson --

Factor military duty into criticism -- National Government, The White House, Lyndon Baines Johnson --

"While this young man was serving six years on active duty, Vice President Dick Cheney, who was born the same year as the Marine/sailor, received five deferments, four for being an undergraduate and graduate student and one for being a prospective father. Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, both five years younger than the African-American youth, used their student deferments to stay in college until 1968. Both then avoided going on active duty through family connections.

Who is the real patriot? The young man who interrupted his studies to serve his country for six years or our three political leaders who beat the system? Are the patriots the people who actually sacrifice something or those who merely talk about their love of the country?"

I don't even have to hear what the Rev said in his sermons to know that what he said is probably absolutely spot on. How can a black man in america not want god to damn it? Frankly I am rather disappointed in the big "O" for not standing up for his pastor more strongly...but then again in whitey land you gotta do what you gotta do to be a viable candidate.

Web of Debt - Today We're All Irish: Debt Serfdom Comes to America

Web of Debt - Today We're All Irish: Debt Serfdom Comes to America:

"In the American South (mainly New Orleans), the Irish lived in swamp land infested with disease. Here, Irish men were looked upon as actually lower than slaves. As one historian put it, if a plantation owner lost a slave, he lost an investment; if he lost a laborer, he could always get another. Because the Irish workers were plentiful and expendable, they were often sent in to do dangerous jobs for which the slave-owners were reluctant to send their valuable slaves.2"

Everyones Entitled to My Own Opinion - WCLT News, Newark Ohio

Everyones Entitled to My Own Opinion - WCLT News, Newark Ohio:

"McCain’s most horrendous loss occurred in 1967 on the USS Forrestal. Well, not horrendous for him. The starter motor switch on the A4E Skyhawk allowed fuel to pool in the engine. When the aircraft was “wet-started,” an impressive flame would shoot from the tail. It was one of the ways young hot-shots got their jollies. Investigators and survivors took the position that McCain deliberately wet-started to harass the F4 pilot directly behind him. The cook off launched an M34 Zuni rocket that tore through the Skyhawk’s fuel tank, released a thousand pound bomb, and ignited a fire that killed the pilot plus 167 men. Before the tally of dead and dying was complete, the son and grandson of admirals had been transferred to the USS Oriskany."

Hey an article by a real conservative who actually has a brain. He ends the article like this...

Are you a genuine social conservative? Do you believe in our wonderful Constitution? Are you opposed the Iraq War and its precursor strategies that have killed hundreds of thousands of innocents? Are you fiscally responsible? Do you truly understand the principles of republicanism? Do you believe in marital fidelity? Are you a supporter of free speech? I submit that if your answer to any of these questions is yes, you cannot vote for John McCain and retain your integrity. The lesser of 2 or 3 evils is still evil. In this case, not by a measurable amount.

Dissident Voice : One Bush Left Behind

Dissident Voice : One Bush Left Behind: "Here’s your question, class:

In his State of the Union, the President asked Congress for $300 million for poor kids in the inner city. As there are, officially, 15 million children in America living in poverty, how much is that per child? Correct! $20.

Here’s your second question. The President also demanded that Congress extend his tax cuts. The cost: $4.3 trillion over ten years. The big recipients are millionaires. And the number of millionaires happens, not coincidentally, to equal the number of poor kids, roughly 15 million of them. OK class: what is the cost of the tax cut per millionaire? That’s right, Richie, $287,000 apiece.

Mr. Bush said, “In neighborhoods across our country, there are boys and girls with dreams. And a decent education is their only hope of achieving them.”

So how much educational dreaming will $20 buy?"

Joe Bageant: Coffee, Consciousness and Revolution

Joe Bageant: Coffee, Consciousness and Revolution:

"Of course corporations and the state understand that you win by not going along with the program, but by exploiting those who do. Thus, wherever there is unquestioned obedience to mass behavior, there is power for the state over individual freedom and profits to be made by the few who understand the value of public obedience. Consequently, the natural cooperative social nature of ordinary people guarantees that there will always be despots, authoritarian states and the few exploiting the many."
