Wow. Month's just about gone.
Sorry, guys. I just have no idea where the time went this month! And what a month it's been too! For three straight weeks now we've watched the Republican Party show just how divorced from reality they are as they keep talking about how imperative it is that they defeat that "Radical Socialist" Barack Obama, and yet have tried every trick in the book to make sure they don't nominate the one guy who would have a snowball's chance in hell of actually WINNING, because he's that dreaded word that all true Conservatives have been conditioned to break out in hives at the sound of: A MODERATE.
Don't get me wrong, Mitt Romney won't get MY vote or backing. But come on! Newt Gingrich?! One of the most despise politicians in American history?! Rick Santorum?! That fucking DOUCHEBAG?! Rick Perry...? Who's learned the hard way that the rest of America in not fucking TEXAS?! And after the revolving side show loonies - Michelle Bachmann, Herman Cain, Donald Trump... Who the hell IS John Huntsman anyway?!
But enough of that... I'd like you to take a listen to the following clip. It was from ~1986 IIRC, and it's both hilarious and depressing in it's relevance. L & G, the late, great George Carlin:
And here's another one. Great clip in it's own right, but the PICTURES the user put over it elevate it to BRILLIANCE:
That's right, Rush. A BIG, BROWN DICK!
Oh, and, uh... If SOPA and PIPA had there way? YouTube could be shut down over these clips. Great country we're living in, huh?
Couple of other things that caught my eye...
A few posts back, William found it appropriate to mock my calls for comprehensive sex education as a way of reducing abortions. well, here's an article that, while fairly stunning, shows, once again, that I'm right and Conservatives generally suck.
And there something else that I'd meant to post before the holidays, but I lost the link. It appears the Occupy movement isn't going away. Well... The Tea Party took over the House and all they managed to accomplish was to derail the economy with an artificial debt crisis and put more people out of work an out of home just as things were finally starting to turn around. Well done, cockmunchers. So I for one, would like to see what influence this new movement can have. Probably not as much - it lacks corporate sponsorship and media backing for one - but at least the article was BEGINNING to clarify the actual political agenda. Because that's really what's lacking here. WHAT DO THE WANT TO ACCOMPLISH?
And there are a few things that I think would make some pretty powerful, populist and scary (to the status quo) talking points. Two that I think REALLY should be at the top?
1) Overturn the decision in Citizens United, via Constitutional Amendment, if needed.
2) Strip Corporation of their "personhood" status.
The whole "no more bailouts" thing... Meh, not so much. That's Tea Party talk, and mostly the area of people who let their anger get in the way of better judgement. Bt ending corporate welfare via tax loopholes? No longer allowing corporation to write legislation? Ending for-profit prisons? Hey: There's some good political grist in this mill. Don't get me wrong, I'm under no illusions that it will WORK. But hey: You show me an OCCUPY Candidate?
And S/He'll have my vote!
Anyway, I realize this isn't all that deep, but I figured I'd drop in and post, so you'd all know I was still alive anyway.
