I am finding it increasingly difficult to cull even some disgust at the current state of affairs in this country.  Is it shock or just a nervous, uneasy feeling in the bowels and in fact the apprehension of nothing but shit to come?

“In this case the hostage was the American people, and I was not willing to see them get harmed,”-President Barack Obama, November 2010
Obama lost the audacity of hope back in November of last year when he effectively eliminated $238 billion dollars in revenue by extending Bush-era tax breaks for the top 2% of earners making over $250,000 a year.
In all truth the die was cast two years before that when the 2nd, 6th and 19th biggest contributors to Obama’s Presidential campaign were Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan Chase&Co. and Morgan Stanley respectively

His statement to  the press yesterday touched on the “the worst recession of our lifetimes” and the potential loss of one million jobs or less than one half percent of growth to our jacked-up economy if Congress can’t get it together.
He also had some words about the 30 Americans shot down in Afghanistan over the weekend. 
To put all this in perspective, take a look at the salaries of Navy Seals and you’ll see what the Center for Economic and Policy Research was talking about in May:
This means that they[Wall Street] make almost twice as much in a day as a Navy Seal earns in a year.”

I don’t know where, why, or what woodwork these Rightwing nutters are coming out of but it’s clear they want to roll this country back to the good old days before FDR. 
They harken back to Reagan who not only waged a War on Drugs, but a War On the Poor, the Mentally Unstable, and the Unionized Working Class on the dark day of August 5th, 1981
I can’t take it anymore.  It’s becoming increasingly difficult to stomach the way this wretched New Century is running down.  I’ll put it to you country simple, in language that even Michelle Bachman can understand:  if you live in a town in New Hampshire or South Carolina and Rick Perry comes a knockin you must run that maggot down.

“But the trouble is, they’re so mobile.  You clear them out and they pop up somewhere else.”-Police Inspector in Catford England, yesterday
Look to London if you need inspiration.  The news coming down wire of the 3 day outrage of rioting and looting on the streets of London underscores the most important issue of our time.  That issue is Net Neutrality.  Just ask Penny Red. She was one of the few sympathetic voices on the rioters in Lewisham, Croydon, Peckham and at Chalk Farm just down the road from her apartment where she wrote yesterday.

There’s a torch burning.  We either pick it up or cough up the 125 grand we’ll need to buy our citizenship and begin a new life on some dirty beach in the Caribbean.  Good luck brother.  The State ain’t gonna let you go that easy.  The United States of America will probably stick you with 10 years of back taxes before it recognizes your expatriation, whether you’re behind this trillion-dollar Christian jihad or not.

I don’t know but I been told
hard to run with the weight of gold.-The Greatful Dead

See you on the island, punkrocker.
