“Dissent is what rescues democracy from a quiet death behind closed doors.”–Lewis H. Lapham. The year 2011 will bring Americans a larger and more intrusive police state, more unemployment and home foreclosures, no economic recovery, more disregard by the US government of US law, international law, the Constitution, and truth, more suspicion and distrust from allies, more hostility from the rest of the world, and new heights of media sycophancy. 2011 is shaping up as the terminal year for American democracy. As 2011 dawns, public discourse in America has the country primed for a fascist dictatorship.
political correctness strikes again chalk one up to the bogus war righteous indignation or outright exploitation forever gaming, conniving scheming for advantage yet truly being lower than that which you champion yes you are retarded Sarah in the truest sense of the word its dictionary definition forever slowing impeding the progress of mankind may you someday attain the semblance of humanity that your unfortunate progeny acquired on the day of his birth
the health care debate is making us weary It's incessant drone is getting dreary while the political hacks try and settle the score the nation nodded it was nearly napping suddenly there came a crapping a smell as if a diaper was unwrapping unwrapping on the chamber floor tis merely a Republican we muttered crapping on our chamber floor only this and nothing more
ah distinctly now we remember back in that bleakest of December when each and every single member took a crap upon the floor eagerly we thought well tomorrow vainly how we hid our sorrow from our hopes we had to borrow anything to help squelch the sorrow for that rare and radiant beauty whom the angels called before Universal Health Care Nameless now and forever more Quoth the Senate Nevermore
echolalia: Psychiatry: the tendency to repeat mechanically words just spoken by another person: can occur in cases of brain damage, mental retardation, and schizophrenia
Yep, there is a word for that so next time you hear a tea bagger or an idiotic conservative republican speak you now know the clinical definition of their disorder. Feel free to use it in a sentence like:
"Hey buddy, I see you still suffer from echolalia why don't you go and rent some original thoughts."or "Your echolalia is really annoying plus you smell bad have you showered lately." or... Well you get my drift have fun and enjoy this most useful of words. I know I will.
the art of repetition is how they get things done the simple minded idiots don't know when they are one
you can see them proudly just turn on your TV they are the moronic idiots that live amongst you and me
they might be your neighbor or the guy just down the street they are simply just repeating Rush Limbaugh's reddest meat
the problem with these people what makes them who they are is the lack of cogitation they really lower the bar
Obama is in a world of hurt the democrats have screwed the pooch and you have to wonder is this by design? Have the corporate powers taken over this completely, between Obama's failures and the recent SCOTUS ruling I see no hope for this country and I mean no hope. It is all down hill from here. I may have to dust off my copy of 1984 this shit seems Orwellian. We are sliding towards the abyss, and nothing can stop this rapid descent. This article is a must read and pretty much explains the current state of affairs in this country and the debacle that is the executive branch. I so want to think that Obama miscalculated that he will rise to the occasion become the champion for the little guy. There is not one shred of evidence to support this assertion in fact quite the contrary he has abandoned the very people who got him elected. This ship can not be steered we are rudderless and quickly approaching the shoals of benighted misfortune. Everyone better don a life vest we are gonna need it.
When you see a picture of this magnitude and then you hear or read about the things Rush Limbaugh is saying you realize one thing this world is fucking crazy. And in the back of my mind I keep hearing Marlon Brando from Apocalypse Now saying over and over again "The Horror, The Horror".
I sent the following to Angelides bogus Commission and I recommend that everyone else do the same this is the link to write them a nasty gram express your self in anyway possible but we need to be heard.
simple simon met a pieman shit where did my money go said the pieman to simple simon doesn't anybody know?
Come on! I can not understand the incompetence and absolute lack of integrity on behalf of this commission. Do you or don't you have subpoena power? Why not use it to your advantage grill these bastards over and over again. Cross question them get them to lie, which they will have to do, this conspiracy is way too vast to keep hidden. Does this commission have any teeth? I knew you could not nor maybe you shouldn't be Pecora, but based on what I saw today why are you wasting your time and ours? It is a pathetic, shameful, travesty an utter mockery of justice and an outright abdication of your authority. I certainly hope you ramp it up, hey why not pick people at random off the street to question these guys you might even find someone with a set of balls. I knew when Pelosi said she was going to appoint a Pecora type commission to investigate this debacle it would lead no where and based on today's performance not only is it going no where it has been there and back nothing and I mean nothing will be accomplished. Sadly maybe this whole thing is compromised money talks and boy based on today the BS walks all the way to the bank. Thanks for nothing!! P.S. We are watching you and history is a mean judge. Good Luck you're gonna need it!!
The hearings (Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission) that I have been waiting for are about to commence in the halls of congress. The big question is will they accomplish anything? I have my doubts but at least something is being done and that is a start. It will be an uphill battle and Phil Angelides has some big shoes to fill if he wants to rival Ferdinand Pecora, but that being said, we ,that is the USA, has to rally around this man in order to figure out the tangled web that is Wall Street and the inscrutable causes for the economic meltdown.
"Do not force others, including children, by any means whatsoever, to adopt your views, whether by authority, threat, money, propaganda, or even education. However, through compassionate dialogue, help others renounce fanaticism and narrow-mindedness". This statement is a fundamental tenet of Buddhist philosophy and it would appear to be axiomatic. I can not imagine a more poignant statement. Such an indictment against our christian society and the prevailing attitudes that currently consume our country. The overt brainwashing needed to compel the next generation of christian soldiers, is a never ending process akin to the scouring of mountains by the forces of erosion and wind. Without this constant barrage the notions of heaven, hell, sin and salvation would be only so much detritus in the never ending onslaught of a commercialized society,
If this shit doesn't bother you then nothing will. Frankly one of the scariest things I have read in a while, the actual blueprint for the dumbing down of the American people, perpetrated under the guise of conservative and religious beliefs. Well the American people do deserve a comeuppance and based on this article we are going to get one. The stupidity of the Christian Right, is a never ending source of amusement, but now I can find no humor in this article, or in the actions of this vile group of conspirators. This article shows clearly the necessity, for separation of church and state, these repellent individuals have no right to deny the children of this country from receiving accurate and viable textbooks.
