Born To Be Mild

i've been travelling the last week, but i didn't miss anything, did i? still the same old, same old: same old faces, same old flanks, same old holes, same old inanity ..... travelling with two two-and-a-half year olds, for seven non-stop hours in a car, well .... it's about the same as reading the new york times or the washington post or the wall street journal or any of the other non-perforated rolls of toilet paper that pass for newspapers these days ....

gee, doctor pete; why would you say that? are you constipated? you seem .... i don't know .... kind of ..... tight and pinched and squeaky ....

well ..... i'm glad you asked, because here's what i'm talking about .....

last time i looked we were still engaged in an illegal and immoral occupation of a sovereign nation that seems to be kicking our butts and bleeding us dry, literally and figuratively ..... i seem to recall--albeit remotely--that we had .... ha ha .... i've got to laugh, i really do .... ha ha .... an election, in which the "american people" seemed to "send a message" that it was time to "get our asses" out of "iraq ......" and it seems that the response of our "government" was to .... ha ha ...... send more cannon fodder over ..... and .... ha ha ...... spend more money that we don't have but that the chinese are only to happy to lend to us .....

ha ha ......

boy, are we havin' fun yet?

ha ha .......

the level of "discourse" is actually lower than badwater, in death valley, which is--at 282 feet below sea level--the lowest point in the continental united states .... why would i say that? well, we've had a "republican presidential candidate debate" which consisted of deluded poseurs vying for the mantle of thomas torquemada rather than thomas jefferson; a new aspiring republican candidate's primary qualification for the presidency is that he is yet another actor, in a string of bad republican actors, who has played "authority figures" on television; our attorney general is another "bad actor," we've had a series of "scandals" which typify republican "presidencies," and the new york times today has an editorial that says it's okay to "believe in god" and "question evolution ....."

jesus h. fuck .....

and i'm not done yet .....

while questioning evolution and shimmying up to a loving god who will consign us all the flames of hell if we don't accept his unconditional love, we've got to "support the troops ...." i don't understand this at all .... perhaps one of the three people reading this can help me understand what this means, other than it greases george bush's asshole so's democrats can more easily clean the foul fecal folds of that festering poop-chute? with their tongues?

this is such a bizarre fuck-button that has amer'cans runnin' 'round like pavlov's poodles, poopin' theyselves 'n' slobb'rin ..... at the risk of repeating myself, "supporting the troops" has meant sending them off to a very hostile environment where they get killed or, worse, badly wounded and sent to walter reed; getting "the treatment" at walter reed; getting denied benefits; not getting body armor; not getting equipment; not getting training; halliburton giving them tainted food and water at exorbitant prices; teaching them how to kill civilians and torture people so they can enter a robust prison guard economy on their return to the states; extending their tours of duty; ignoring psychological and environmental hazards ..... yada yada yada yada ..... yada yada yada yada .....

giving king george more funding, giving our rosy red rat-pecker president more money doesn't mean "the troops" get more supplies or not; it just means that halliburton and boeing and raytheon and lockheed get more money ..... because they don't have enough ......

you want to "suport the troops?"

bring 'em home .....

on top of that we're doing the "illegal alien" thing .... jeez, my degrees are in psychology, so don't count on me to do the math and economics of having the labor force that makes your sizzler's salad bar a possibility ask for health care or education, but honest to god, i find the whole argument spurious and offensive, yet another barbed metal butt plug in lady liberty's ass, and just another way to legitimize america's traditional penchant for racism ......

so much for "give me your tired, your hungry, your poor ....." how 'bout givin' them the finger 'n' the tip of a cowby boot up their butt, while rupert murdoch cuts to the head of the line?

all the prisons we're building? why don't we cut to the end of the chase and "crack down" on criminals, and incarcerate our "press corpse" and all our "politicians ......"

oh ..... lobbyists, too ......

next: dr. pete still makes no sense

Dr. Pete;
"travelling with two two-and-a-half year olds, for seven non-stop hours in a car, well .... it's about the same" as reading the new york times or...."
I'm sure glad you said "it's about the same" as opposed to "it is the same".......as frustrating traveling non stop for 7 hours with 2 1/2 year old twins could get......they are curious,full of life, and innocent.............the news people are not only not curious, but they are way past the age of innocence. Given a choice I go with the twins!

"i seem to recall--albeit remotely--that we had .... ha ha .... i've got to laugh, i really do .... ha ha .... an election, in which the "american people" seemed to "send a message" that it was time to "get our asses" out of "iraq ....."
As you said it so well in January.....BUY PARTISAN! They've all been bought hook line and
sinker.

"spend more money that we don't have but that the chinese are only to happy to lend to us .....
ha ha ...... "
Ha Ha...when the Chinese start calling in the loans the fun will start!!! Good thing the Universities in the States have courses in Chinese!

"this is such a bizarre fuck-button that has amer'cans runnin' 'round like pavlov's poodles, poopin' theyselves 'n' slobb'rin ....."

Just the way they want it..........smart, well informed Americans = dangerous Americans.....

"you want to "suport the troops?"
bring 'em home ....."

The Europeans have been demonstrating yearly at the globalization conferences aka G8...the Italians have demonstrating 100,000 strong to prevent moving 2000 U.S. soldiers from Germany to Italian soil. They will be there on June 9th to greet Dubya................Seems like everyone but the Americans know what's going on (Dr. Pete excluded)...........anyways I think it's time for
a "Radio Free America" broadcast: of course not from American soil.........wouldn't want anyone broadcasting truth to be declared an "enemy combatant"

"next: dr. pete still makes no sense"
And I hope you do!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dr. Kanga, your observations and insights are accurate.

My opinion from day one has been that "Support the Troops" was a code slogan for support the cause for the war. If you carefully notice, the ideology from this incompetent, inept and corrupt administration has been based on metaphors and magical thinking. They use terms that instantly make any opposition the bad guy. How could anyone not support the troops or be "pro life"? They also have used repeated messaging, a tactic that worked well in Nazi germany in the late 30's. Magical thinking - we'll build a nation, we'll spread democracy, they'll greet us as liberators, the oil will pay for the war, they hate us for our freedom, we have to fight them over there so we dont have to fight them here, they'll follow us home and on and on. It's the makings of fairy tales, and a significant percentage of our citizens buy this shit. What a damn disgrace! We shouldn't be surprised of how the rest of the world views us now.

The 2000 election was bad enough, but what the hell were the people in this country thinking when they re-elected this buffoon? If they did a bit of research, you know the same amount of time they use to pick out their new television, they'd realize this guy was incompteent from day one. With every business and endeavor he had, he drove them into the ground. Sort of the Midas Touch in reverse - instead turning into shit. He has never understood the concept of cutting your losses and still doesn't.

Will the American public now realize that incompetence is very dangerous? An incompetent president hires incompetent people - Rice, Wolfowitz, Brown, Rumsfeld, etc. How many decades will it take to repair the damage this administration has done - politically, socially, environmentally and fiscally?

Can't agree more........
Our 9/11 'hero',Mayor Giuliani helped us with the false flag for this war so here is some info:

I dont know folks .Gee, do you think our country is controlled by crooks?

Here is some info on Giuliani's
Early life and education at least as it reads in Wikipedia. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rudy_Giuliani#Early_life_and_education

Giuliani was born in Brooklyn, New York to working-class parents Harold Angel Giuliani and Helen C. D'Avanzo, both children of Italian immigrants. The family was Roman Catholic and its extended members included police officers, firefighters, and criminals.[11] Harold Giuliani had trouble holding a job and had been convicted of felony assault and robbery and served time in Sing Sing prison;[12] after his release he served as a mafia enforcer for his brother-in-law Leo D'Avanzo, who ran an organized criminal loan sharking and gambling operation out of a restaurant in Brooklyn.[13]

In 1951, when Rudy Giuliani was seven, his family moved from Brooklyn to Garden City South on Long Island. There he attended a local Catholic school, St. Anne's.[14] Later, he commuted back to Brooklyn to attend Bishop Loughlin Memorial High School, graduating in 1961. He received College Board scores of 569 verbal and 504 math.[15] He went on to Manhattan College in Riverdale, The Bronx, graduating in 1965. He then attended New York University School of Law in Manhattan, graduating cum laude with a Juris Doctor in 1968.[16]
