How the Amalgamation of EvilCorps and State That is Our Ruling Class…

…plan to devour you and yours when their insatiable greed for power and wealth burns through the present bailout strategies. Don’t imagine that the sin of greed produces sanity.  Those who think the rich and powerful can’t be bought are not in touch with reality.  The rich and powerful have been bought already.  That is [Read More...]

Dear Tom: The Answer, Alas, is Yes

Under our current lawless regime our God King has an absolute, self-granted Executive 007 that can be exercised against any human being on planet Earth, citizen or not. No US law restrains him. Only custom and political expediency–in other words, what he can get away with before somebody stops him–pose barriers. Now that the legal [Read More...]

And the Left (and Right) Were Mostly Fine with This

Sure, the Right got on board a bit when it started trending on Twitter and seemed to be becoming A Thing.  But had Paul not filibustered, there would have been few ripples.  Our Ruling Class *likes* the accrual of despotic power and they don’t like or trust you.  For most of them, you are no [Read More...]

The Biggest Enemies of the United States

The Rand Paul filibuster has been immensely clarifying.  Any member of our Ruling Class who opposes him on this point is an enemy of the United States of America. That includes most of our Ruling Class on both sides of the aisle, as well as the Wall Street Journal and Alternet.  Some righties and lefties [Read More...]

Meanwhile, out on the Left…

David Sirota at Salon does battle with the tribalists of his tribe, who won’t support Rand Paul’s stand for bloody obvious sound principle–that the President does not have the right to secretly order your murder–because he is a ritually impure Republican. Most of my readers are conservatives, so I spend a lot of my time [Read More...]

Avatars of Thing That Used to be Conservativism Attack Actual Conservatism

Well that didn’t take long.  Tom McDonald notes on his FB page about the political whoring of John McCain and Lindsey Graham as they pull out the long knives to deal with Rand Paul’s uppity protest against our Ruling Class and the Corporatist Police State they service: Rand Paul has finally forced the issue of [Read More...]

Golly, Who Could have Predicted This?

Colbert Explains the Sequester

I remember when people kept telling me that voting for these feckless twits was “realistic”. Good times. Good times. [Read more...]

Sober Realism

It turns out the US has an “infinite amount of money“, but also that we, who have about 135-145 million workers stand to lose “170 million jobs“. Oh, and a man who has authorized himself to order the murder of anybody on planet earth he chooses–in secret and with zero accountability–is not a dictator or [Read More...]

Thing that Used to Be Conservatism Cheers for Despotism

In our current state of political discourse, the idea of thinking before reacting is getting rarer and rarer.  The Thing that Used to be Conservatism, being almost entire a creature of the Conservative Infotainment Complex, seems to never give much thought to its positions these days beyond, “Does this have a chance of ginning up [Read More...]

The Ruling Class of the United States of America

…taking care of its heroic soldiers in the manner that the rich and powerful have cared for their slaves for centuries: The Air Force has some bad news for the pilots of its F-22 Raptor stealth fighters: Your planes are going to make you feel crappy and there’s not much anyone can do about it.

Pelosi: Congressional Pay Cut Would Undermine the Dignity of my Job meanwhile… As VA struggles, delays and errors greet returning warriors… The dignity of Nancy Pelosi’s job should be cleaning toilets in Afghanistan until every one of the people she sends into harm’s way while keeping on sub-poverty wages is brought home.  Every dime she [Read More...]
