TSA/Airport Intrusion Just the Tip of the Wedge

 (click pic to embiggen)

Ben Franklin would be appalled.

If you spend any part of your life on-line, traveling, working, recreating, using public facilities, receiving health-care, government services, patronizing commercial establishments, raising/educating children, let alone writing congressmen, senators, presidents, newspapers, blogging and so much else, you come under ever increasing scrutiny.

The scans can view your calls, texts, tweets, URLs, home, car, workplace, body and more.

And at least five of the "great" minds on the Supreme Court think this is just dandy.

Our freedom is slowly being eroded in exchange for a false sense of security.

The rich get richer and the poor kids keep marching off to war.

Bin Laden must be laughing his ass off.  One rotten little man in a cave (compound, whatever) changing an entire society from half a globe away to prove his god has the bigger dick.

And we fall for it.

This is all so reminiscent of the Fall of Rome that it's scary.

And meanwhile we cook the planet just to keep things "edgy". Sheesh.

Lester Maddox - Teabaggin' in 1965


Is this the original teabagger?

Handy checklist:
     1)  Hates Democratic President (y)
     2)  Hates Socialism (y)
     3)  Hates Communism (y)
     4)  Supports Racist (y)
     5)  Supports Moneyed Elite (y)
     6)  Supports Unfettered Capitalism (y)
     7)  Supports Discrimination (y)
     8)  American Exceptionalist (y)
     9)  Misspelled Sign (n)
    10) Fat and poorly dressed (n)

Forty-five years ago and he scores eight out of ten.

Seriously, how big are the differences between this racist cracker and the average Fox News viewer?

I remember Lester Maddox as one of the most despicable men of the time and the resemblance to the "patriots" poisoning our political landscape today is inescapable.  The tree hasn't fallen too far from the nut.

The Concern of Our Betters


Not too far fetched if you ask me. From Bluntcard.

Anyone earning less than $250K/yr who votes Rethuglican doesn't even begin to grasp the principle of enlightened self-interest.

If we "give the keys back" to these assholes expect this (from Crooks and Liars):

"Rep. Lynn Westmoreland (R-GA) has no problem shutting down the VA in order to pursue this ridiculous Republican government shut-down strategy [...]

Yep, the most vulnerable Americans will really get nailed on this. Seniors on Social Security and Medicare, families on Medicaid, veterans who need medical attention. All so the Republicans can suck up to Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck. Psychotic."

Plenty of money for wars and upper-class tax breaks but not a farthing for thee or me.

And they believe that they are our betters.  Fuckers.

Math is a Religion?!? Calvin and Hobbes





I can't tell you how much I miss Calvin and Hobbes.  It always reminded me what it was like to live life with a child's wonder and imagination. I hope Calvin didn't grow up to become a cynical, disillusioned Wall Street corporate greed monger.  Or a priest.

Catch you later.....

(Edit) Or a Teabagger.

Fox News Fans




This is how you get the "folks" to vote against their own self-interest.

I think the TEA in Tea Party must stand for Terrible Educational Achievement.

Secret Service, Yoo Hoo, Over Here!



This sort of thing is disgusting. I sincerely fear one of these nut jobs is going to do something truly horrendous. I lived through the assassinations of President Kennedy, RFK and Martin Luther King. To wish or hope for such a thing is beyond treason. It's inhuman and evil.

To associate such sentiments with the Star of David is especially disgusting.


This is an abuse of free speech just as much as yelling "Fire!" in a crowded theatre. It should earn a visit from the Secret Service PDQ.

Who's Laughing Now?


And they want to put him on Mount Rushmore?!?!?!?

We're still counting up the damage.


African-Americans only wanted loose shoes, good sex and a warm place to go to the bathroom?

Facts are stupid things?

Pollution from trees kills more people than pollution from automobiles?

Just say no?

The Average American's attention-span is dangerously shortened by rank self interest.

They really do get the government they deserve. Fools.
