I’ve gone through a change. Transformed. Like menopause. Suddenly, the Republican Agenda makes sense to me. I’ve gone from liberal to vacuous.
Seriously. Work with me here.
Torture makes complete sense in the context of liberty and justice for all. Dick Cheney and his minions should not be investigated or prosecuted. They were merely doing their best. It’s hopeless silliness, not to mention unpatriotic, to pursue any form of persecution of these brave defenders of the American way. As American’s, we are better than everyone else, we don’t deserve the scrutiny. We are above it. God put us here to rule the world and he is on our side. Our unique responsibility is to rid the world of evil.
We are special. Jesus tells us so. The Bible tells us so.
Our qualifications are exclusive and divine. Christian Americans are The Chosen.
Republicans in particular.
Those who’ve failed to reach their fiscal potential are not my problem, my concern and certainly not my fault. Maybe God’s will is that they should be left behind. A kind of religious natural selection. Ha! Take that you atheist Darwin lovers. After all, God only helps those that help themselves. Christ has no use or patience for the weak or impaired, they are unable to do for themselves and are therefore worthless to the Holy Spirit. Never give a fish to a Democrat, teaching the worthless to fish is a waste of time. Some have been chosen and some have not. The Christian way and obviously what the Heavenly Father intended for the Christian nation of America.
The rich should be taxed minimally, if at all. Wealth drives the modern economy. They provide the largess for jobs and industry. They are the chosen. Thus, their generosity is evident and already in place. They do far more than the beggar or the homeless can or would.
I’ve come to loath the rotting toothed, stupid and desperate poor. God has not chosen riches for me but I shudder when I gaze upon the worthless because I know my tax dollars go to prolong their miserable lives. Poor but obese, they lack the sense to choose wholesome and nutritious food. They neither know nor care enough too seek proactive medicines or practices and I don’t doubt that’s all part of God’s plan. That these zombies are allowed to drain the money and resources of American society in general confuses me. God does work in mysterious ways.
I don’t hate them because God says not to.
America is the land of opportunity. Always has been. Those who’ve failed to take advantage of America’s vast and ripe system of free education and abundant possibility are simply beyond hope, especially once they pass the threshold of adulthood. I work, I have a job, so these greasy, dentally challenged trailer park dwellers, these weak and worthless veterans of our wars who can’t get it together and refuse to do for themselves, make me want to puke. Look at all the goddamn foreigners that take jobs as convenience store clerks or manual labor workers that take jobs from worthy Americans. Are these people less capable, less able than honest Americans? Maybe they are, maybe they’re not.
Falls under not my fucking problem. All I know is I’d much rather have my tax dollars go towards fighting the raghead terrorists than these wastes of God’s air. I see these people in wheelchairs sporting an oxygen tank in casinos and I just know my money is paying for them instead of keeping us safe from Satan’s Muslim evil doers. They should be euthanized like the diseased cat’s and dogs that make a mess of my trash and threaten neighborhood children with a cornucopia of malaise. Tics, fleas and ringworm.
Ever heard that expression “Kill ‘em all and lot God sort them out”? I’m down with that. I’m no judge and jury but get them off my block and out of my town.
Sometimes I think Hitler was more on the ball than he gets credit for. Everyone knows the Jews control the banks and the entire entertainment industry. You know “The Family” on C Street more or less agrees. He really was just looking to rid his country of Faggots, Gypsies, Jews and the ethnically impure. Hitler was a Christian too, you know. He had “The Ultimate Solution” and I think we could take a page or two from his playbook.
It’s a good dose of reality as opposed to the fascism and socialism pinko liberals try so hard to cram down our necks every fucking day.
See, they’re not patriots like me and you. They love niggers and spics and anyone who isn’t from the Mayflower like us. They are weak. They give money to all the dirty and lazy regardless of their color. Ask me for money on the street, I’ll tell you to get a job you piece of shit. They wander around pushing their stolen shopping carts full of stolen trash and I hate them. Their skin a map of rashes, their eyes bloodshot with their hands out and the cloud of foul stink they walk in. This instead of a job?
Fucking lazy if you ask me. No excuse.
Christ has blessed my soul with charity but these people have no will or desire and don’t deserve the fish I can afford. If they won’t die, better off behind bars at $30k a year because they are a menace. Know God or pay the price.
We should attack and punish those countries who threaten us. The future of the world depends on the triumph of Christianity over Islam. They’re heathens and there’s no chance of co-existing with a bunch of towel headed camel jockeys. Crude and uncivilized. We have nukes and they don’t. Time to use them. Negotiation is pointless. Turn their the desert into glass.
Take a breath.
I hope you understand that I’m kidding. I’ve painted a picture for you of what I hate. It is a caricature for sure. A broad stroke, the impetus, the catalyst, being a solid month of right wing talk radio and it’s blatant, overt dishonesty. Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh are simultaneously American icons and stains on America’s aspirations and her identity. What they do everyday is sick, irresponsible and evil. They and their ilk seek nothing more than to pollute our national discourse so egregiously as to rile the stupid and offend the thoughtful to the extent that they are actually paid handsomely for their treason. Shining examples of the worst of us. The physical manifestation of everything that is wrong with American society, patriotism and all our precious ideas.
They are paid handsomely to stir shit. Disgusting. I would swing on either one. I fucking hate these guys.
This blog is dedicated to Teddy Kennedy. Not perfect by any means, I understand his flaws better than you can know, a lion nonetheless. A champion of all those I’ve lampooned so harshly here. The dynasty has ended. It really is America’s loss.
His passing is poignant and symbolic. It was with JFK’s assassination that the modern era of brutal politics flooded us. The subsequent courage of LBJ and the assassinations of Robert Kennedy and Martin Luther King cemented the vulgar ugliness of right versus left in this once vital and proud nation. We have fallen from those heights. Those ideals and those hopes.
In so many ways, we are in the same place. A half African, half Caucasian man as President. We are back in that place more than you probably know. Round headed idiots showing up to Town hall meetings sporting loaded weaponry enough to slay everyone in front of them. Adolph fucking Hitler invoked over and over. There are so many children in America, both literally and figuratively. I worry so much that despite the election, we are forced to choose between a martyr or Superman.
It would be convenient and gratuitously exculpatory to pontificate here, but I’ll spare both you and me. Save this: Both John McCain and Orin Hatch disingenuously lamented the absence of Ted Kennedy from the health care debate in the last day or two, insinuating that his presence would have made a difference. Fucking pricks. Shame on you assholes. You and your ever shrinking party are beginning to trip over your own dicks in your own race for shamelessness.
Public option or bust.

More than a little pensive.
The citizens of Iran have a profoundly legitimate beef. One of the best kind. Noble and justified. An obviously rigged election. Blatant. Ridiculous. The turn out was over 120%. Bullshit is the given.
Tomorrow may inform us of eventual fate. The Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, deigned to wade in today on the Sabbath, by vehicle of his scheduled sermon. Just another day of worship. He was clear: Those who “take wrong measures which are harmful, they will be held accountable for all violence.” He called President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad “the absolute victor” in last week’s election…..” -CNN.com
I’m spooked. The difference between these human events and Tiananmen Square for example, is that despite the Iranian government’s game face and perseverant campaign to control information, this revolution just may be televised. Forgive my trite. I’m not here to obviate something so big and ripe. I fear what happens next. Both sides are more than aware that the entire world watches.
The chances of a fistfight are always multiplied by an audience. Always.
The Ayatollah didn’t merely draw a line in the sand. He came out with serious lumber. He tells the people of Iran that they are welcome to test his bat. He tells them it will be ugly. I’m really afraid of that. I think it’s quite likely. Man, I hope not. Did you know that Iran is arguably the most pro-American country in the entire region? These people are in trouble and I doubt they will walk away. There will be blood. There already has been.
Iranians are not pussies.
Our Man’s facility with it all has been pitch perfect. He understands that any movement in Iran perceived as being fomented or even endorsed by the US government is a guarantee it will sink under that weight. The asshat Republicans shouting jingoistic bullshit from the rooftops are posturing with lamentable irresponsibility. Man I hate these pricks. No compassion, zero sensibility, reckless abandon in pursuit of grandeur. Shut the fuck up.
Iran is a modern society. It has a vibrant and youthful population, progressive by regional standards. Amazingly, a huge chunk of them don’t hate us. Really.
My fear is that the Iranian people will suffer for whatever they do tomorrow. For years.
It is the covert option that most media fails to talk about. I’m afraid they will be picked off at random, regardless of participation, until, you know, morale improves. I don’t see tanks but I do see terror. For years. They know full well, both sides get it. Tomorrow is going to be interesting.
See, we’re all just citizens of the world. After the sun impregnates the horizon and the stars come out, the day is done and we are all the same. We really are all the same. I live in a big city so ethnic diversity is but a part of my coat of many colors. Whether your thing is prayer or the power of positive thinking, it’s time to do a little dance.
Wisdom, safety and support to the people of Iran.
And, um, fuck the Ayatollah.

Cable is out. Chose not to pay the bill.
What people fail to understand is that Obama cannot afford to even address this issue of guns, to do so would ignite an already hot pile of insanity. These fucks, these crazy zealots, are lying in a puddle of their own excrement waiting for Obama to utter the words “gun control”. It will be an excuse for them to snap.
Patient but dumb.
Wouldn’t be prudent.
Most of you are just stupid enough to not understand how dangerous you are. It really bugs me.
Sorry boys and girls. The issue of guns will see no play this season. Understandably so methinks.
Unless assholes keep shooting shit up. Give it a rest already. I refuse to to fear this.
I got comic books on the brain. I bought a thousand bags & boards and five long boxes the other day. For the last three days I’ve bagged and boarded. Surreal. Amazing nostalgia. I adore comic book art. My collection is perfectly preserved. Exactly the way I left it. Beat up books are still beat up books, but pristine ones are still pristine.
Crazy. I touch each one as I place it on a board and manuever it into a bag and I remember reading them, almost everyone of them stirs something in my head and there’s over a thousand. Damn. They were gathered with care as well as abandon. As I rember them, I understand they have informed me as much as they are going to.
They are everywhere in my apartment now. Leaning or stacked, grouped by title. Huge swaths of Ironman, Spiderman, The X-Men, Daredevil, Avengers, Fantastic Four……The Flash, Superman, Batman, The Justice League……….Star Trek, Adam 12, Richey Rich, Zoro and Archie……Boris Karloff, Ripley’s……….Swamp Thing, an assload of MAD magazines, Heavy Metal, Conan and Epic.
An amazing historical capsule. Late sixties to early eighties. The breadth and diversity of my collection affords me permission to brag and be proud because I was a child when I assembled it.
My folks are heros for packing them, storing them and delivering them to me when I bought my first house.
The way they smell and the way they look and my absolute romance with them when I barely had opinion about anything. I began to obsess when I was twelve. I was twelve.

Anyway, today Michele “We’re Running Out Of Rich People In This Country” Bachman (R-MN), by far the biggest assclown in the US House of Represenatives, gracelessly attempted to infer that flu epidemics somehow only occur under Democratic administrations. See if you can follow her logic:
“I find it interesting that it was back in the 1970s that the swine flu broke out then under another Democrat president Jimmy Carter…….” -Huffington Post
The Human Shitsmear had this to say:
“[E]verywhere Obama is spreading Obamaism, there is a deadly disease taking place, either in the TARP community or in the newspaper business … Obama goes to Mexico — they have an earthquake. Obama goes to Mexico — get pig flu,” -wowwowwow.com
Awesome. Do the math. You’ve got an evil humanitarian and Nobel Peace Prize winning philanthropist, and our current President, a nefarious community organizer and two, count ‘em two, outbreaks of flu related to pigs of all things. Oh, and, they’re both Democrats. I bet they used the same lab. It’s probably deep in the basement of some Red Cross shelter or maybe a Salvation Army thrift store.
Sheezus! That’s iron clad. A slam goddamn dunk! But wait. The original swine flu epidemic occured under Ford. I feel dizzy. I think I smell yellowcake uranium……my vision is clouded by pockmarks not unlike those littering the visage of George Tenet.
In late March 1976, President Gerald Ford emerged from a meeting with 27 health advisers with an ambitious request: “I am asking every man, woman and child in the country to get an inoculation this fall.” -dumpbachman.blogspot.com
It’s fair to say I love to loathe this woman. I adore her stupidity. I covet her retardation.
Why, just the other day she deigned to lecture Congress about Carbon Dioxide. She posited over and over that it’s a natural gas. She’s right about that but then so is the methane in my flatulence. What’s the point? She’s sure it can’t be bad for us because it’s from “nature”. She goes on to inform the esteemed deliberative body that there exists not a singly study proving this natural gas is harmful to humans. Five syllables Michele, asphyxiation.
She gives truth to the concept of failing upward:
In response to a question from host Chris Matthews, Bachmann said on the Oct. 17 show that she was “very concerned” that Obama “may have anti-American views” and that the news media should investigate the views of members of Congress. -Miami Herald
Then there’s Arlen Spector. Booya! I’ve always thought this guy to be inconsistent but obviously of his own mind. He confuses though not predictably. Maybe he actually has his own mind. Just can’t tell with these damn white collar tweekers.
Franken will get to sit and Spector makes sixty. A nice number. The Democrats, should they choose to act in concert, will have a majority immune to fillibuster. It’s something they rarely do regardless of whether they’re formidable or not. I’m not about a lockstep majority in the Senate but we need to be able to swing haymakers and roundhouses. Change won’t take unless we land some.
Homogeny is not a given among the jackasses.
Whatever. What these two stories point to is serious structural damage in the GOP. Take Mehgan McCain’s remarks:
“Karl Rove follows me on Twitter. That’s creepy, and ” Later, she wrote: “I can’t shake the fact that Karl Rove is following me-it can be creepy. So watch out.” and “Call it savvy marketing, but I find it disingenuous,” she said. “And it’s a bit weird to think his people-not even Rove himself-are following me.” -CNN
This thing will heat up. It will be a battle of the titans. Not so much between Democrats and Republicans but a contest between progressive and ignorant. Between smart and stupid if you will. Pro peace, pro choice, not fooled by creationism or abstinence, unafraid of gay people, tired of organized religion in our face rational humanists, versus desperately afraid war pigs that believe shit like Democrats are responsible for the fucking flu.
Guess who wins.

Bill O’Reilly, who’s likeness appears along side the definitions of both ‘hypocrite’ and ‘blowhard’ in the most reputable dictionaries, said in an interview today that he boycotts any film in which Sean Penn appears because of his political views. In the words of Snoop Dogg, “Fuck Bill O’Reilly”. And, “He’s a motherfuckin’ prick”. And, “Suck my dick”. And, “so I can kick his motherfuckin ass when the show is over with”.
I don’t really have anything to add here.
In other news, I thought it was pretty cool to hear that the CEO of GM, Rick Wagoner, was walking away at the behest of the Obama administration. That is, until I read the greedy bastard could tip the fuck out the door with as much as $20 million. Excuse me, there seems to be some sort of canker on my penis. Does this look infected to you? It’s like deja vu all over again.
Also, thirty thousand pythons as long as twenty feet are threatening to go forth, multiply and overrun Florida and there’s a million pounds of pistachios out there that will kill you in your bed.
The world is an increasingly perilous place and I’m almost out of pot again. It’s legal here in California as long as one suffers from a serious and/or chronic malaise like ingrown toenail, sebaceous cysts on one’s genitalia or say, brewer’s droop from drinking beer.
A prescription costs between a hundred and a hundred fifty bucks. My fridge is broke.
I watched a comic tonight on Comedy Central. Josh Blue. Self deprecating, brave, honest and very funny. He suffers from cerebral palsy. Walk a mile in another man’s shoes but never forget about the man with no feet.
I’m an agnostic. My position has more to do with the abject silliness of just about every organized religion on the planet, as opposed to some sort of soaring epiphany. Honestly, I owe my stake more to the vacuum of logic that exists in every dogma fomented by people of faith on up to, but not exclusively, the goddamn Pope.
YAOUNDE, Cameroon (March 17) – Pope Benedict XVI said condoms are not the answer to the AIDS epidemic in Africa and can make the problem worse, setting off criticism Tuesday as he began a weeklong trip to the continent where some 22 million people are living with HIV. -AOL news
Don’t lose sight of the fact they boink all the little boys and girls they want.
Good luck with that crap you pointy hatted pontiff. I’m not sorry to tell you that Catholicism just may be the most egregious and archaic “faith” practiced in America certainly, and under the world’s proscenium without a doubt. I will be as blunt as possible here. Catholicism encourages me to root for Satan. Catholics are fools. So are Baptists, Mormons, Anglicans, Protestants, Muslims and especially Evangelicals and Born Agains.
They are all petty children in the eyes of the universe.
My sincerest apologies if I left any one out.
Buddhism occurs to me to be the only discipline that bothers to address the existential nature and uniqueness of the human condition. I just can’t help but appreciate a fat guy with a shit eating grin in the context of all the other tragic and sometimes stigmatically bleeding religious icons.
Most of it is about guilt and non intellectually curious blind shithouse faith. What I mean to say is it’s spectacularly dumb.
You gonna eat that?
Drinks for my friends.
I can’t stand it. It just goes on and on.
Geniuses and Jack O’ Lanterns.
The issue is this.
The right tries so hard to call it murder. Ahem.
It is far more nuanced and organic than that. They only do black and white.
Mother Earth will ultimately decide the the fate of humankind. She will be fine. She will prosper. The Earth does not need us. All the Earth needs is the goddamn Sun. Last I heard, the sun is gonna be around awhile.
Earth may decide that humans are no longer compatible with her goals. Her ideals. No longer congruent with her plan for survival. In a time not far from now, The Earth might shrug us humans off. She might just heat up and burn us out.
If she does this, She’ll have decided we do more harm than good.
If she does this, She’ll have decided to save her life and that of all her other inhabitants.
Who can blame her?
Maybe we’ve been tolerated thus far because we advanced so rapidly. We emerged as a species so very capable. So bright and creative. We made art and beauty while either reaching out with compassion and concern to everyone, or raping, bombing and killing every civilization in sight.
We stormed her peaks, plunged her depths and polluted her lungs. She’s seen us kill on a scale that is both awesome and terrifying. In a mere few thousand years, we developed the ability to destroy just about every life she births and nurtures.
She is impressed. Not in a good way.
Earth doesn’t need your language. You need hers. It’s not as simple as humans not understanding. It’s as ugly as humans refusing to understand. Willfull ignorance.
Mother Earth may choose to abort us. It is certainly her right and obviously within her power.
The Earth is a Mother and it is her prerogative.
Men have no business passing laws governing a woman’s reproductive rights.
Any of you at this point desiring to invoke God should just shut the fuck up. My God is The Earth. In precisely the same way you do not wish to hear about my God, I’m not interested in hearing about yours. Fuck off. I think your’s is stupider by far, than mine.
It is my right to enter into a decision with a woman about our pregnancy as opposed to allowing a religion manufactured from convenience dictate our direction without regard to our lives.
The comedy is this. You that have so much faith, so much conviction that we are acting counter to the wishes of your God, why are you so unwilling to let your God decide?
Why are you so zealous as to kill doctors to prevent us from committing this “sin”? After all, your God will sort us out, wont he? If you believe so absolutely, what are you so worried about?
Is your faith so weak as to force a question about your God’s ability to keep us heathens in check? A question profound enough to force your hand to take it upon yourself? You will say that we imprison others in society who commit murder. We even murder them. I say your definition of murder is flawed and you’re not equipped to judge.
You do your cause no favors by vehemently opposing such basic science as evolution and stem cell research. You force the hands of us with a modicum of common sense to look at you as retarded. Overly enthusiastic, euphorically fanatical, idiots.
Isn’t it your God that would deny us access to Heaven for using condoms?
Some people are stupid enough to believe contraception is a “sin”. This in a time when the world has way too many humans. Some people are just fucking stupid.
Abortions will occur. With or without your consent. The rich will have them no matter what laws you’re able to pass. The poor will suffer. Ill equipped to even bring a baby to term. Unable to afford any prenatal care. From a practical perspective, I’m just looking to keep the coat hangers out of it.

This whole thing with this ‘sect’ of the LDA in Laredo Texas, serves as one or both of the above. Once again religion rears it’s misshapen countenance right here in America. Texas of all places. Utah, Colorado and Texas.
I’m just saying.
An entire belief system built around the idea that the rape of children by middle aged men is somehow not just permissable in God’s eyes, but an act that is holy. When the sons that are produced by these holy unions come of age, they are seen as competition and discarded.
Now, if that were the history or legacy of my church, I’d tip the fuck out the door.
Kind of ironic that they’ve been under investigation in our own country for four years while we’ve had prisoners in Gitmo for at least as long because someone smelled a little sulphur.
Yep, God works in mysterious ways.
All religion is filthy. Greedy. Self serving and far more concerned about preservation of the bureaucracy than any individual or group.
“Imagine there’s no heaven
It’s easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today…” -John Lennon
Since it’s inception, the concept of religion has served to explain things, phenomena, coincidence and injustice for which humanity has no other logical explanation. It used to be that religion WAS science. Since inception, religion in almost every form, has accomplished this with lies, corruption and egregious criminality.
It is a very clear and consistent pattern.
The further time marches, the more religion is beset by reason and intelligence.
Let us not dive headlong into the history of wars, genocides and tortures perpetrated in the name of someone’s God. That’s not a book, it’s an encyclopedia.
Religion is at the wheel in our politics no less than any Middle Eastern nation.
Tax the goddamn churches and hang that fucker Cardinal Mahoney for making a career out of protecting pedophile priests. How is that not worse than the LDS whack jobs?
The answer is!
The Catholics are filthy stinking rich.
The single most insidious problem in the world community is and always has been, that in most places, we are are raised with the imperative that in order to be whole and complete, we must worship a God.
I’m calling bullshit on that.
How about self reliance and personal accountability? I’m not the world’s best adjusted human, but it’s worked for me so far.
I’m not here to tell you there isn’t a God. If there is one, I doubt most of us can understand it, and I’m sure as fuck the religions I know aren’t even close. As long as we’re on the subject, not all churches are bad. If you attend to socialize and find ways to do positive things, good for you. Good people are most often the people who make doing the right thing a priority.
At the same time, when I meet an overly zealous man, I understand the chances of him being full of shit are more than good enough for me to bet on.

enough to flourish and achieve consciousness. It
is imperative that we stop our bickering and begin to
