" Of all forms of tyranny the least attractive and the most vulgar is the tyranny of mere wealth, the tyranny of plutocracy " - John Pierpont Morgan
Our sick sad fuck of an used, abused & oh so confused obscurantist circus was just voted in. It promises to give America what it deserves !
Now what will that be ?
More racism, more religious bigotry sanctioned laws, more anti-gay shit, more wall street shananigans, more war profiters & child chewing monsters to keep the economy chuging along or just more of the efin' SAME since CHANGE is on the up&up ;)
White House,Pentagon, State Department, FBI, CIA, etc. may have differences of style, but all of them have the same and well defined and known objective: the defense of the economic and geopolitical interests of its Global Elite. It is not a matter of a president: fat, skinny, dumb or bright, black or white. It is a matter of a system. The capitalist system in its higher level: Imperialism.
" The U.S. Treasury is empty, we are losing that stupid, fraudulent chickencrap war in Iraq, and every country in the world except a handful of corrupt Brits despises us. We are losers, and that is the one unforgivable sin in America.
"Beyond that, we have lost the respect of the world and lost two disastrous wars in three years. Afghanistan is lost, Iraq is a permanent war zone, our national economy is crashing all around us, the Pentagon's ‘war strategy’ has failed miserably, nobody has any money to spend, and our once-mighty U.S. America is paralyzed by mutinies in Iraq and even Fort Bragg.
"The American nation is in the worst condition I can remember in my lifetime, and our prospects for the immediate future are even worse. I am surprised and embarrassed to be a part of the first American generation to leave the country in far worse shape than it was when we first came into it. Our highway system is crumbling, our police are dishonest, our children are poor, our vaunted Social Security, once the envy of the world, has been looted and neglected and destroyed by the same gang of ignorant greed-crazed bastards who brought us Vietnam, Afghanistan, the disastrous Gaza Strip and ignominious defeat all over the world. The stock market will never come back, our armies will never again be No. 1.
We have become a monster in the eyes of the whole world – a nation of bullies and bastards who would rather kill than live peacefully. We are not just whores for power and oil, but killer whores with hate and fear in our hearts. We are human scum, and that is how history will judge us… No redeeming social value. Just whores. Get out of our way, or we’ll kill you." – Hunter S. Thompson
"We are watching a poorly staged rendition of Wag the Dog , interpreted for the morbidly stupid and performed by the criminally insane." - Jules Carlysle
What was lost
See ya all on DEAD END STREET ;)
"How to get people to vote against their interests and to really think against their interests is very clever. It's the cleverest ruling class that I have ever come across in history. It's been 200 years at it. It's superb." - Gore Vidal
Its here that the American dream decided it liked the taste of the vomit it was chocking on. Just rolled over on its back and screamed for more drugs. it didn't die. - Warren Ellis

NO MORE CONVENIENT COINCIDENCES
By Gordon Duff STAFF WRITER/Senior Editor
After the Christmas bombing fiasco in Detroit, prettymuch everyone is talking about new body scanners and more torture and terrorism against decent law abiding airline passengers. Are we saying a word about the Dutch who lied to us about the terrorist's passport or the Israelis, yes, let's admit who they really are, whose airport security companies only seem to protect El Al planes and nothing else? No more terrorist "walk arounds" or hidden box cutters on planes. We aren't buying it anymore. We have had one coincidence too many.
Do we talk about folks like Michael Chertoff, the creator of our totally broken system of phony counter terrorism when he headed Homeland Security with its spying on everyone BUT terrorists. Chertoff, is the guy who now is out selling radioactive scanners to fix the problems caused by his own incompetence. He is going to make tens of millions off his own utter incompetence, or what we hope is incompetence. Does anyone really think we can stay ahead of the human mind with gadgets operated by illiterates, incompetents and, at times, terrorist sympathizers?
I would hate to start putting together a pattern of money grubbing companies, "fly by night" Cheney/Rove demagogues and the worldwide network of Israelis who seem to have their hands in both ends of every disaster and come up with an inescapable conclusion: If terrorism weren't so damned convenient, useful and profitable for everyone but the victims and the supposed terrorists, the two groups that get blown to hell, we might not have terrorism at all.
You don't have to be a genius to see a con, not one this lame.
The next time an "expert," be it a retired spy, self proclaimed counter-terrorist consultant or one of the robotic Pentagon morons or, worse yet, the especially despicable gang at Family Security Matters, the GOP front group that fills my mailbox with childish "terrorist under the bed" stories intermingled with "vote for my thieving friend" and "send us more money so we can keep lying" messages, sticks its head up, it might be time to consider a Jihad here at home.
Time to call a halt to all of it.
I'm sorry. I am not buying any of it anymore. I'm not buyin 9/11 and Rumsfeld telling me, "I didn't know there were terrorists, it was a big surprise to all of us," or every Air Force plane in the US suddenly breaking at the same time.
I am not buying the, "We're sorry about lying to all of you about Saddam and his WMD's but we needed to steal his oil and it only killed 5000 or so kids, most of them not all that important anyway."
I am not buying the "Let's bomb and invade Iran though there is even less proof Iran has a weapons program than Saddam. There hasn't been a credible word about Iran, only the usual harping from the Murdock/Israeli press and the folks who want a chance at stealing Iran's oil too.
We knew the oil from Iraq, the oil Americans were bled to death paying for, was stolen from the people of Iraq. If a crime works once, why not try it again. Iran, expect a visit, we are coming to save you from yourselves. Start digging graves for your children, our oil tankers are on their way.
Then we come to the "whatever" in Afghanistan. I won't call it a war. War needs an enemy and some sort of objective. Our only objective is to "surge." Can't we do that here at home? It has kind of an indecent sound if you think about it.
I'm not buying the surge. Nobody is, but a few are pretending to, mostly because they are so addicted to constantly lying that they don't know how to stop. The entire idea behind our strategy is based on smoke, mirrors and horse manure. "Yes, the warlike Pashtun tribes are waiting with open arms for us to start handing out Ipods and Laptops. Nothing brings out love in a fanatical Jihadist like a bit of Steve Miller Band."

Tony Blair was told Saddam Hussein may not have been able to use his chemical weapons ten days before war was declared, the Iraq Inquiry was told today.
The second day of public hearings heard the Foreign Office had no evidence Saddam was trying to supply chemical or biological weapons to terrorists.
Despite the warnings, however, Tony Blair told the Commons Saddam did have chemical and biological weapons when he made the case for war on the eve of the invasion in March 2003.
Subsequently, it was found Saddam did not have any weapons of mass destruction, having failed to rebuild his programmes following the first Gulf War.

A former diplomat at the centre of events in the run-up to the Iraq war revealed yesterday that the government has a "paper trail" that could reveal new information about the legality of the invasion.
Carne Ross, who was a first secretary at the United Nations in New York for the Foreign Office until 2004, told MPs: "A lot of facts about the run-up to this war have yet to come to light which should come to light and which the public deserves to know." There were also assessments by the joint intelligence committee which had not been disclosed, Ross told the Commons public administration select committee.
He told the inquiry that the intelligence made it "very clear" that Saddam Hussein did not pose a significant threat to the UK, as was being claimed at the time by ministers, and that tougher enforcement of sanctions could have brought his regime down.A former diplomat at the centre of events in the run-up to the Iraq war revealed... more
The Michigan Earth Keeper Initiative promotes interfaith environment projects and America's top Muslim Imam brought just that message to Marquette, MI
Imam Hassan Qazwini, head of the Islamic Center of America, spoke on Oct. 22, 2008 at the Lutheran Campus Ministry (LCM) Lothlórien House in Marquette.
Northern Michigan University (NMU) Health & Nutrition Professor Mohey Mowafy of Marquette introduced Imam Hassan Qazwini:
Imam Hassan Qazwini:
Quoting the Qur’an, Imam Hassan Qazwini said:
Corruption (Mischief) has appeared on land and sea because of (the meed) that the hands of men have earned, that (Allah) may give them a taste of some of their deeds: in order that they may turn back (from Evil).
“Corruption has appeared on the sea and on the land due to what the man did - or what the man does.”
Meaning that God created this very beautiful, splendid planet. And he gave it to us as a gift. But he asked us not to corrupt it, not to ruin it, not to destroy it.
Did you know that in this country, we only form five percent of the world’s population, but we consume 25 percent of the world’s energy. This means that I am taking my own share - yet I am taking the share of five other people in this world. I am using my own share plus the share that belongs to five other people - I am consuming.
It means that I am stepping over my limits. And I am doing such injustice to the environment. I am selfish. I want to enjoy myself. I don’t care about the environment. I don’t care about others. I want to use everything for my own benefit only.
Many of you love hunting. How many of you hunt?
Answering the Imam’s question, reporter Greg Peterson says “I am growing my beard (for deer season) right now.”
Imam Hassan Qazwini:
Hunting is a hobby that many people love to do. In Islam, my religion, two people can hunt only.
A hunter - meaning whose career is hunting, someone who makes a living out of hunting.
And the second one: A man who is wandering the desert or the woods. And he got so hungry, and he could not find anything to eat, he went and he hunted something. He ate. That’s fine.
But for someone to do it as a hobby - it’s prohibited (in Islam).
Because God allowed me, permitted me as a human being, he gave me the right to take the life of an innocent animal only when I need it. When I need to fill my stomach. When I am hungry. Or when I need to make a living because I have to make a living.
But for me to go out and enjoy myself with the cost of killing an innocent animal - God says: ‘Here your freedom is over.’ You can not take the life of an innocent animal simply because you wanted to enjoy yourself. Simply because you wanted to have some fun.
You may tell me: “I am not going to waste it.”
I know, but what was my incentive when I hunted this animal. My incentive was to enjoy myself not because I was hungry. My point that I am trying to say is this: That God want this equilibrium to be kept and to be preserved.
We Muslims refrain from eating so many kind of fish - the kind of fish that does not have scale on the skin - we cannot eat. Why?
Because we know that if we are allowed to eat everything in the ocean then the balance the equilibrium in the ocean will be upset.
Therefor - not only my well-being - the well-being of the environment will be in danger.
So the bottom line is - that Islam is one of the religions that emphasizes protecting the environment.
You can use from the environment as much as you need - not as much as you enjoy.

America's top Muslim Imam brought that message to Marquette, MI on Oct. 22, 2008 at the Lutheran Campus Ministry (LCM) Lothlórien House.
Imam Hassan Qazwini, head of the Islamic Center of America, says all religions, people are basically the same.
Northern Michigan University (NMU) Professor Mohey Mowafy introduced the Imam:
Imam Hassan Qazwini:
“I was born in Iraq (1964) in a city called Karbala. It’s a holy city in Iraq. After that I went to Kuwait and then to Iran. (studied in Iran). In 1992 I came to the United States.
Up until I came to the United States in 1992, I knew there were Christians in Iraq but I never had any interaction with Christians. I never had any interaction with Jews in Iraq. I lived my own inner world. In Karbala, everybody is Muslim. There were Christians, there were Jews and obviously other denominations in Iraq, but I lived my own inner world. In Karbala, everybody is Muslim, so I really did not have any interaction beyond my little world.
It was in the United States when I have my first encounter with non-Muslims.”
Imam Qazwini told a story about riding in a car with his brother in California and stopping into a busy Christian church - and discovering that all religions believe the concept of love.
He said to Muslims - Jesus is as respected and revered as Mohammad.
Imam Qazwini said all religions and peoples basically “hold the same values - the same beliefs.”
“We passed by a church in a city called West Covina. So I see a church, it was Sunday, it was a church and the parking lot was full. Probably there was over 300 to 400 cars. So I asked my brother ‘What was going on here?’ He said the pastor is giving a sermon.”
“He said ‘Are you sure you really want to go inside the church?’
I said ‘Yes.’ He said “What do you do?’ I said ‘Come on, I’m not going to covert to Christianity. What’s going on here?” (laughter) I said ‘I have a chance to see what does the pastor have to say when he speaks to this congregation.’
“And I listened ...”
“All I heard him talking about was love. Jesus loving you. You love Jesus. And about the concept of love. So as he’s talking I am listening.”
“I said to myself ‘Look, in our religion we also talk about love.”
“Muslims believe that God has 99 names. And one of his names is Al-Wadud. And Al-Wadud is “The Loving One.”
“I said to myself ‘Look almost everything he is talking about is there in my religion.’ And how similar we look. And for every word he says quoting Jesus. I have a word to quote from Mohammad. As Muslims, Jesus to us - he is a prophet as well. He is as respected as Mohammad and as revered as Mohammad because we Muslims believe there are five superior messengers - Mohammad, Jesus, Moses, Noah and Abraham.”
“So we place Jesus almost in the same place - or status - as we place Mohammad.”
“In my mind as I am listening (to the Christian pastor) These words he was uttering are resonating in my mind. And reflecting my own faith system.”
“When we do not see each other, when we do not interact with each other. We think of each other - that we are weird. I think you are weird. You may think that I am weird. You may thing that I harbor some very weird thoughts. I could be a very weird person. I could be someone who does not think like you think. And probably I would have the same thought about you.”
“But when we meet, and we mingle, and we exchange thoughts, we find how striking our similarities are.”
Be Muslims, Christians, Jews or what else - non-denominational - basically we hold the same values - the same beliefs. And we worship God with different tongues and different languages and different styles - but the direction is the same.”
