Pot Calls Kettle, Uh, Red?

The Prez gave his State of the Dis-Union speech this week, said some nice things, etc., had the usual crowd yeah-ing, and the other usual crowd spitting milk out of their noses. Alito looked as though he'd been stuck with a lemon-drop martini into his right eye, some Repugnicant gov gave the usual tainted-bromide response, and therein revealed the truth of the entire matter. No surprise, really. I mean, we all know damn well the Repugs cannot abide that colored guy messin' up their White Guy House, no surprise. But when they lay it out as a bald-faced truth about their , uh, thinking? on this topic, well, just a breath of pig swill, ain't it?

Every time I hear the likes of John-boy Boehnhead spit out stuff like "whenever the President wants to stop being partisan, we are ready to work with him." To do a disservice to the late great Jimi Hendrix, excuse me while I kiss the toilet. Just when have the Repugnicants ever even TRIED to be bi-partisan? Certainly not since the colored guy assumed their precious seat of power, that's for sure. Maybe its the word, what do you think? "Bi" partisan? I mean, these bozitos will screw anything with money, but if they have to actually ADMIT they could be a partner in solving this nation's woes, well, their acute homophobia kicks in. Wouldn't do to have their constituents think they were "gettin' cozy with the guys" now, would it?

Come on, people! This is the problem with extreme ideologies: screw the other guy while cloaking yourself in the mantle of righteousness. I see no substantial difference between the Far Wrong in this country and the Taliban. Both refuse to rest until all apostates are "converted" or eliminated, whether by bullet or ballot, as long as the "unbelievers" get the hell out of the way. Extremists are only different from each other in the type and degree of weaponry, with no real difference in motive or sense of God on their side and the devil to the rest of you.

People, we are ALL in deep doo here. And whatever your political stripes, the effect of the current disastrous state of the union is such that Repugs and Demoncrats, so-called In-depends, agnostics, and anarchists are all going down with the ship. Only the rich are staying somewhat above water. So why is it, that someone like John and Jane middle America, up to their throats in debt, fear and loathing, still allow themselves to fall for one set of political promises after another without EVER considering how the consequences, intended or otherwise, are going to make things even worse for them than it's already been for the past eight or none years? Face it - no politician makes a promise they can ever really keep. Even those who are candid about the reality have little power. Obstructionist on both sides of the aisle prevent anything from happening that doesn't benefit their rich and corporate butt-buddies, while simultaneously depriving the rest of us with anything resembling a fair deal.

I recently read a comment on some other blog, can't recall where it was or who said it, but the thought is what counts, eh? The posted offered an excellent idea - as long as the corporations keep buying politicians, we are always the ones getting screwed. Therefore, stop voting for any incumbent, except those who can prove they have taken NO corporate bribes, funding, etc., until the corporations start to realize they won't have the same guy/gal from one election cycle to the next, and start to see they are wasting their bribes. Lets turn over the slate in every election - Fed, state, and local - except for those who can show, with complete transparency, they only accept campaign donations of say, $500 or less from any given contributor, and none at all from any corporation. Throw all the other bums out. Will we lose some good and otherwise honest people? Sure. But since the Suckdream Court essentially gave the Government over to the corporatsnaktions, this is essentially the only real power we the people have left. So why not, as they say, get a little excersize?

Between the ineffectiveness of the Demoncrats, and the arrogance and intransigence of the Repugnicants, the idea of the Prez, of whatever stripe, actually getting things fixed in this country is as absurd as saying there will finally be individual jet-packs available for you and me, fifty years after they were promised by Popular Science. Hell, we don't even have jet-powered skateboards yet!

So, we have two choices: sit down, shut up, and spend every last dollar on crap you don't need, or stand up, make noise, and put your money where your mouth is.

Don't you think its time to send the Extremes packing?

You Want The Truth? We All Have Problems, But There Are Some Whose Troubles Seem Beyond The Pale

An article on the front page of today's NY Times, Cultural Riches Turn to Rubble in Haiti Quake, mentions one Paul Jude Camelot, who is an artist in that ravaged nation. He lost all his artwork, but worse, he lost all the fingers on both hands. Now, I don't know about you, but I am going to do whatever I can to help this fella. First, I intend to raise money to help him get treatment, and also to help him get back to his art. Unlike Pat Robertson, I know the difference between Christian charity and bullshit masquerading as holy jabber.

So, I am asking my one or two readers to send this blog to at least five other people, and ask them to do the same. I want you all to dig deep, five or ten bucks (come on, you can part with that much, I know it - ain't ONE of us whose got less than this fella) and I am going to seed the fund with $100.00 If you can match that amount, your name and photo (if you want, not if you don't) will be put here on the front page of the endoftheworldetc and you will be lauded and praised for all time (or, until the Internet collapses, but that won't be MY fault.) 

The fund will be set up with An international arts organization (Still working to get this finalized, I'll update by tomorrow), who will use funds collected to a) have devices called opposers made for Mr. Camelot's hands, so that he can grasp and hold everyday objects - cup, fork, pen - as well as his paintbrushes; and b) get funds directly to Mr. Camelot, and to the school he was attending, the Ecole Nationale des Arts. Help me help him and his fellow students (those who have survived) get back their educational opportunity, and help Haiti get back a bit of its cultural treasures. The arts, contrary to the insane claims of the anti-arts Far Wrong of the Pat Robertson/Jerry Falwell ilk, are often the one thing that can lift people's hope, and if what we are seeing of the disaster in Haiti is even the smallest portion of what has occurred, as I strongly suspect, then these people need all the hope they can get.  

So, what's it gonna be? Here is one thing to think about, even those out there who believe it cannot happen to them - it can happen to you. Earthquakes, tornadoes, floods, fires, etc., they happen to people all over the world, yes, Virginia, even here in America. One day, you may find yourself in similar circumstances. Where do you think help is gonna come from? 

Only from people who are generous and caring. 

That's you, isn't it?

Oh, Great. Now the Crows Are Gonna Poop on Everything!

Ever notice how some species get all in a huff when they don't get their way? And then when they DO get their way, they are still in some version of a huff? Or how some creatures just can't help but wallow in their own self-aggrandizement? (Sorry - I know it's a bit early for the big words, but I need to get them out of the way early in the day, ya dig?) Anyhoo - the Repugnicants are in full fluff over their twin wins - another Brownie scout, and the latest hit record from the Supremes, wherein their fat cat corporate lap dancers can spew their zillions all over the landscape helping the Far Wrong further drill its nasty little dental drill into the brains of every citizen, without restriction. 'Course, so can the other side, but we know where the biggest trough is and whose allowed at its swill.

And will they be even a wee bit magnanimous in their victory dance? Does the Pope s**t in the woods? Can a bear do a passing imitation of Grover Cleavland at the Ice Capades? Come on - why even bother trying to answer the question, eh,  Bubba? Nah,their gonna rub everyone's face in this stinkin' pile for the entire foreseeable future. Just like they do every day. Big surprise.

But lets not tell them about the price of hubris, what say? 'Cause every time the bozitos fly too close to their own golden sphincters,  well,  lets just say it all won't come off in the wash. It is the one true rule of success - eventually, you gonna fall on your ass in front of the world, especially if you keep waving your arms in self-congratulation. In fact, allow Notumbus Bumbus to make a little prediction here: The Far Wrong are gonna think these two wins mean ultimate victory for their warped crusade to crowd-surf on the heads of everyone and everything they despise (boy, THAT was an easy prediction), and, in their wet-dream of absolute victory, they will unleash their own McCarthy Moment. And I'd say this should be happening right around the next election, where they hope to crush all hope for any real future for the America most of the people want to see flourish.

Now,  I will be the first to admit (no, not to a sexual perversity that will make me lose in my next race to the poorhouse) that this seems an easy prediction. After all, we know how the Far Wrong's butt-boys, like O'Really and Glenny-poo, Hammity and Coult 45, like to open mouth, insert anus. And how their fav fatboy Limbarfer will spew his face off till the cows come home,  get milked,  then return to the field for some more methane spewing. But this time, the hubris will shine most supreme from within the actual elected Far Wrong Frat Party itself, swollen with tumescent pride, and voila! there goes the weasels, doin' the full backpedal. Remember how much the Far Wrong just LOVED the John-boy Edwards debacle? And how every time one of the Repugnicants got caught with their own diddle-and-fiddle "issues"? Remember how well their Teflon worked?

Well, I predict a similar punking, and this time,  that non-stick cooking utensil is gonna make the yolk stick so bad, they won't even be able to get it off with a bucket of Brillo. Because now that all the gloves are off with the corporate donors and all, even THEY won't want to back a candidate with too much smutty stuff on their hands. Because - you know what's coming, right? - corporations are interested in one thing, and one thing only - their money. Can you say "boycott?" Yes, Virginia,many people can. And as they are the one's upon whom the corporations depend for their money, I predict a renewal of the use of, and the success of, the time-honored tradition of money talking, bullshit walking. And let me be even more specific - the perp on the Repugnicant side will be from the Senate. That's right - the House of Cards.

And as we get closer to that Very Special Time,election season, Notumbus Bumbus will be even more specific. You might want to start telling people you read it here first. Call it,  The Pudge report. Yep, as in Masked Pudge (come on, work with me here!)

'Nuff said!

A Wee Vacation, Really, That's All It Was

No, no, no - there is no truth to the rumors circulating all over the Web-o-sphere that Notumbus Bumbus was abducted by aliens loyal to She-Rah Pail-In and whisked off to a tea party for Repugnican wife beaters. He was actually taken to a tea party for the Moose Queen herself, but he managed to escape before Her Big Speech. I mean, who wants to be subject to that form of torture!

Actually, he just went on his first vacation in ten years, only to be washed out by the storm of the century still in progress along the entire Western Edge of Civilization. Can you say "power outages?" Can you say "but I thought YOU brought the inflatable?" Needless to say, (so I won't) it was a complete wash-out. Couldn't find a latte joint to save my wife, er, life. Heh.

And while I'm gone, all hell breaks loose. Wouldn't ya know it? The complete collapse of an entire infrastructure, lives lost, money down the drain, images of horror seared into our eyeballs, pundits gone beyond their usual bonkers states, and feelings of hopeless helplessness. I mean, how the HELL could those Demoncrats EVER think Coakley had the ability to win? And THEN, there was the on-going tragedy that is Haiti.

Before the world could barely react, the Far Wrong's Postal Boy, Limbugger, was already spewing on all things humanitarian directed at those "poor black folk" to the South of Amuricah. This Total Dickwad told the world how using the links,  LINKS, dammit, to organizations such as the Red Cross and Doctors without Borders, posted on the White House web site, was to be giving your money to Obama. Which, as we all know, is merely code for "black folks everywhere." Now, we know Limpburger is a racist asshole, so its not really THAT surprising. But we also know there are literally 1.5 million people (yes, despite Limpdicker's spewing, they ARE people,) completely homeless, without food, water, shelter etc., and despite what the Far Wrongoids fervently believe, that THEY are the Elect and Chosen, and therefor exempt from intelligence and common humanity, and superior to all other life forms, especially those of inferior colors, these PEOPLE deserve a little "Christian" charity. And when these Far Wrongoids rant about their "Christian" superiority and favor in the "Eyes of the Lord," I just gotta puke.

These are the same jokers who patted themselves on the back over that "Good job, Brownie" jerkwad in regards to Katrina, and the African American citizens of New Orleans who got "left behind." And how it was all, "God's punishment" for the City's "sinful ways." I think its well past time for these evil Evangelical ass-wipes to actually READ the so-called "good book" they claim to get their superiority and validation from. But then, they would have to face the harsh facts that it is in fact themselves who need "saving" from their own vomit covered hearts.

Oh, boo-hoo! Is that, once again, too over-the-top for you? Tough nuts! The Far Wrong appears bent on destroying the democratic ideals of this country just to get their own way, and piss on anyone who tries to say there might be something repugnant about the Repugnicants. Well there is,and I will keep saying so until there emerges from the Far Wrong's swamp of nastiness and actually remembers what "conservative" actually means, and has the spine to stand up to these teabaggers and fever-brained spewers of hate and act in the best interests of democracy, instead of bowing and scraping to the nut-jobs claiming the mantle of their "party." (more like a Yale fraternity kegger on steroids, if you ask me, and yeah, you didn't, but there it is.)

As for Haiti, here are the same links found on the White House web site, so I can get the money (right.)


Now, really. Does that look like you are giving money to Obama?  If it does, then I suggest you will be happy with the CURRENT quality of Amurican health care. Good luck with that, bozito!

As for me, I gave what I could to Oxfam, who have been doing the good work out there in countless countries around the world for decades. And never ONCE asked what color anyone was. They just get clean water to the thirsty. More of those "liberal elites," for sure. You think Limbwhacker would give so much as a CUP of water to a thirsty person of color? Boy, do I have a Bridge to Nowhere for you!

Dig deep, and give.You gots lots, so give lots. (Did YOU eat today? Do you have a roof over your head? See?You gots lots!)

Who knows - one day, it might be YOUR ass in a sling - hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, financial meltdowns, what have you, and then, wouldn't you like to know the difference between generosity, and Rush Limpbarfer?

The Repugnicants Show their (Truer) Colors - Screw You, Poor People!

Well, can't say this is very surprising, given the can't do-won't do attitude from the Far Wrongoids this past year. But still, this is really a new low in an otherwise belly-dragging group of troglodytes. It seems they now are demanding that all Repugnant legislators not only vote against the health care (insurance protection) bill before Congress, but now they are being told they have to work to repeal the law should it pass. The so-called "Club for Growth (their name means, "we will grow whatever we want, wherever we want, and however we want, and if you get in our way, we'll use our Club on your sorry-assed head") is demanding politicians "take the pledge", which is not some way of them promising to keep their wood florors shiny. No, it means do what we tell you to do, or we'll sic our teabaggers on you, and run you out of office.

So there it is, people. The Far Wrong have no interest at all in helping the "people" they claim to represent. All they really want is to divide the country, to keep anything good from happening to anybody except them and their friends. No surprise - they not only have an acute failure of imagination, but a complete abscess of a moral compass. They claim to be Christians?

What a cynical joke.

You want to see this country go the way of a third-world country? These folks can get the job done for you!


Haiti: The Forgotten Country

Sometimes it takes a real disaster to make people remember who their neighbors are. The last time most Americans recall that little island to the south of the U.S. was all those boat people trying to get to somewhere nicer than their perpetually devastated country, many dying in the process, or being turned back by the Coast Guard (and THEN dying.) Its hard not to watch the scenes coming out of Port au Prince right now without thinking about Katrina, but I am sure this President will do the job right this time. No more of that "Good job, Brownie" crap.

Living in an earthquake zone myself, I see in this disaster an abject lesson in preparation and laws pertaining to building codes, and enforcement thereof. Haiti is the slapped-down neighbor of their wealthy "betters," in the Dominican Republic. Seems when the wealthy get tired of their uppity former slaves, the beast solution is to sequester them in their own "enclave," call it a country, and thus be done with any further responsibility. I know a few folks in white sheets kinda envy that solution, but too bad they had to settle for "real change." Not that anything has changed all that much.

Anyway, I suspect there will be the usual snipes from the Far Wrong set in the days ahead, despite their claims to being "christians." Which would just be business as usual, of course. I wonder when Dicky-poo Cheney will spew up next. Probably say something to the effect that Prez Obama "doesn't get security" for wasting troops and money in a country without oil, or some such. Oh, you think I've gone too far? Well, time will tell. (Actually took less than 24 hours! See this.)

As for me, I am donating to the Red Cross and Oxfam, and urge all real Americans to do the same. $5.00, $10.00, $20.00, or more if you can. This is going to be a hard and costly venture, and given our history, I don't think its out of line to say this may be an opportunity for the U.S. to repair its international image to a high degree. For those who could give a fig about our international image, allow me to remind you of a few basic facts (yep, facts. You can check them out for yourself, if you think I'm just jerking you around, OK?)

Where does most of the goods you like to buy everyday come from? How 'bout that oil? Or your cars? Steel? Fruit in winter months? I could go on, but then you'd get upset, and we don't want that, do we? Fact one: our ability to compete in the global market for goods and raw materials is directly impacted by how we are perceived by the world community. Fact two: our security at home and abroad are directly impacted by how we are perceived, especially by countries we are trying to help shed extremist elements in their countries, and those same elements from attacking us. Starting to get the picture?

I hope so, for all our sakes.

By the way, did anyone notice who the first foreign government was who had people landing in Port au Prince with rescue personnel and supplies? Hint: they wore red jumpsuits, and carried a large flag. Give up?


Hows that for us "leading the world?"

Dig deep and give large. Never know when you'll pray for a return favor.

Daredevil Dems Dumb Down Derring-Do, Drop Dumbell on Own Feet. Duh!

Today's object of ire - Demoncrats. These folks are the world champeen of smackin' theyselves up aside they own heads, and then looking surprised with one of those "where the hell did THAT come from" looks on their duplicitous little faces. Here they have themselves a nice majority, not a big one, mind you, but still, they have victory in their grasp. So what do they do? Exactly what they ALWAYS do - they make another grand snatch at defeat. Seems no matter what lands on their doorstep, they just HAVE to trip over it.

Case in point - health care reform, er, sorry, insurance welfare. Lets see - the Repugnants keep slamming the car door on their silly little fingers, and what do these jokers do? They keep sticking them back in the same door. I dunno, maybe they have some kind of  S &amp M thing going here, who knows. Keep their coalition together to see this ugly puppy through to the finish line? Nah. Keep at least SOME of their promises to the folks what brung 'em to the dance so  they have a reasonable shot at going to the summer cotillion in 2010? Nah. Take the offensive against all the Far Wrong drivel and vitriol, lies and fear talk, so maybe they can show these baloney babies up for what they REALLY are? Hell, no!

Yeah, seems the Democruds just have some deep and abiding need to lose, again and again and again. See, wheelin' and dealin' and dickerin' over the niceties of horsetrading is all well and good. Unless, of course, your opening bid is to flop over on your back and ask the other side to please kick you, hard, and of course they can have what they want. Just how the hell do they expect to get any respect at all, whether from their opponents, or from their constituents? I guess a hundred swats on the fanny from a ping-pong paddle makes them feel like theys representin', or something.

Look, at this point, this so-called health-care reform is shaping up to be nothing more than a lock-down sure thing for the insurance companies, an option I swore was going to be the doing of the Repugnicans, given their long, languid sleaze dance with the Big Corporate Masters they've been sucking at the teats of for decades now. So I have to admit, this one took Notumbus completely by surprise. Seems the shill is on the other foot, now.

And just take a look at their bedfellows - Move On, etc. Urging Obama supporters to give the Prez his "victory" without once applying basic skeptical analysis to the language being foisted on the unwashed masses. Hell, it all but tells us they aim to give the insurance company's carte blanche over the entire country, with fewer safeguards than we have NOW! Why is this so hard to follow for these bozitos? Are they going on the simplistic notion that if Obama says it must be done now, then it must be "all good"? Or are they convinced of their own "specialness" for being on the "righteous" side of history? Well, that often IS the rationale of the Left Overs.

People, here's a little item you might want to mull over the next time you are stuck on the toilet for a while. Do you REALLY think, for even one minute, that the Repugnicans and the Demoncrats, by whatever standard you care to apply, are thinking they are helping YOU and ME with this serious boondoggle? Do you really think they will actually "rein in" those greedy bastards in the insurance (protection rackets) industry? You do??!!

I guess those sugar pills work just as well as the real thing,eh?

Where the hell is my Scotch?

Too Big To Fail? Sorry, Wrong Question...

Lately I've been thinking about this strange analysis of the so-called financial meltdown of the past year or so, where the excuse to bail-out banks and private-sector financial institutions was they were "too big to fail." Of course, most folks bought this BS hook, line, and stinker. Those who railed against it said bailing the bozitos out of their own greed-wrought mess completely undermined the entire idea of free enterprise, where the right to suceed is accompanied by the possibility to fail. If you or I did what these jerk-wads did (by the way - its called "gambling," except with other people's money) we'd either be in jail, or bankrupt. And it would in fact be the right outcome, in most such instances - if you play the game, and lose, that's one thing. If you game the game, on the other hand, well,  you get shot out of a cannon into a brick wall, with only yourself to blame.

But I have come to an entirely different conclusion about all this crap. These jerks weren't "too big to fail." In fact, they are too big to succeed. "What?" you say? Clearly they succeeded - look how they took all our money while posting some of their biggest profits ever! How is that not success?

Look, say you hold some shares of AIG. You turn on the news one day to learn this company has played the market for a fool, but then had all its own markers in the game pulled by their own lenders. Remember, they've done this stupid-ass deed with YOUR money. Which, sorry Charlie, is now worth squat. AI effin G, as only one huge example, has essentially squandered not only said shareholders dollars, but far more importantly, they've essentially pissed on said shareholder's trust, and belief in the system itself. By any measure I can find on the concept of success, this represents a failure of gargantuan proportions. Are they still in business? Yes, Virginia, they are. Are they still rapaciously ripping off the consumer? Yes, Virginia, they most certainly are. Will their stock recover? Oh, hell yes (See P.T. Barnum.)

But the truth is, AIG is a complete failure, as are the other greed-hounds who built this house of credit cards while telling everyone everything was peachy. They have undermined the central thesis of free-market capitalism, which holds that the market itself will determine who should survive, based on such fairy tales as price, quality, speed to market, efficiency, etc. Central to these elements is the notion that every business has both the opportunity to succeed, and the potential to fail. And when failure occurs, others will rush in to take the market. And this is the fairy tale we have all bought into, until now.

These banks and financial houses are in fact too big to succeed. That they needed bailing out from the taxpaying people of this nation is the surest sign of failure - they have NOT survived due to their own hard work and ingenuity - they have survived because they lied and cheated and then got the government to help them scare the holy crap out of the populace, who by then were so freaked they couldn't tell the truth from the lie.

And the truth is, we bought the lie.

We were told this was necessary to prevent a further collapse, a world-wide depression. So what happened? 10% + unemployment is a sign of the success of that plan? Millions of foreclosures is a sign of success? For the bloody fools we call economists, the depression was averted. But for the millions out of work, out of homes, and out of trust, the depression is not only here in force, it keeps looking like its going to become a permanent fixture of the much-vaunted American Dream.

So you tell me - how are these robber-barons doing? If success is measured only by the Machiavellian standard of "I got mine, too bad for you," well, they have certainly succeeded. But if its by the standard set by that Dream, where hard work and honesty will bring success, well...

Hume Fumes That Woods Headed to Tombs, Bombs Completely

Brit Hume, you are a seriously sick salamander - slimy and cold to the touch, with a brain that has spent waaaaaaayyyyyy too much time under a rock. Just where do you get off insinuating your religion is better than anyone else's? Sure, you work for FOXY NotNews, and sure, you have a big head, and, well sure, you THINK you are a jihadournalist, but we all know what you really are - a dick-head. The only good thing you've done to date is to make once and for all clear that the Far Wrongoids you spew for are in fact engaged in a Crusade - for the heartless and mindless.

I know many Buddhists who, on their worst day, have more integrity in their stool samples than you and that little Party of God you spew with has in their entire medulla oblongatas. As for your "brand" of Christianity, lets get something clear right now - you are shilling for the Brand, not the supposed message that supposedly "informs" it, as it is quite clear you and your moose ilk could give a royal crap about said message. All you really care about is marching to the Armageddon you all so fervently desire. Please, then, have your own personal barbecue, and let the rest of us alone and in peace.

Alas, that is unlikely to happen. This is due to the fact that you Far Wrongoids are so full of yourself (along with seriously huge quantities of elephant dung) that you are oblivious to the desires of everyone else at the party who wish you would just hurry up and pass out so they can resume their civilized conversation.

Oh, have I gone and gone too far? Boo-hoo, shame on me. I have no right at all to be angry at people who have appointed themselves my and everyone else's "better" in this life. Yea and verily I say unto you, do as I say, and not as I do. When am I going to get that into my thick skull?


Here's the facts as I see them (jeeze, ain't that implied by its bein' me whats sayin' it?) Each of us is born by accident. That is, we don't choose the parents, the country, the environment, etc., etc. We just show up, and all the crap is already in progress, and being shoved down our throats before we even know its not all food thats being shoved. And by the time we figure that out, we've either succumbed to the crapola, and joined in the shoveling, or we've begun the arduous process of trying to shovel our way out, and into a better vision of life-as-it-might-be. Course, then the crap shovelers tell us we are "living in a fantasy land." Or some other such crap (they get all this stuff at the same store, ya see, and that's why it all looks and smells the same. No imagination, these crap shovelers.)

So we dig, and dig, and one day see that things like religion, political beliefs, and most social concepts are really nothing more than belief systems some people have developed and been successful at selling to others to enable themselves to control their own way through this life. And among all of these belief systems, one finally emerges that tells us, Hey, all this crap is just an illusion, something we have slapped together in the belief any one of these things will shield us from the dark, from the bad people, from hunger and want, etc. Oh, and by the way, it is the very illusory beliefs we hold onto and promulgate that cause nearly all the suffering humans experience. And that INCLUDES deifying the cat what founded this idea.

Which, in the face of all the hatred spewed for millennia by other religions and belief systems, is a real breath of fresh air. Because, now listen up, kids, it DOES NOT claim to be a religion, it DOES NOT claim to be "the way," and it DOES NOT try to proselytize, to shove the crap down anyone's throat. Wow. What a concept.

And we still have to tolerate the likes of Inhuman Hume trying to sell the idea that Tiger should renounce his "religion," which is in fact NOT a religion, and join up with the Pod People on the Far Wrong, and then "all will be forgiven." There is a long tradition in so-called Christianity that warns of hubris, of elevating one's self above the "gods." Seems Hume is tempting fate within his own belief system, if'n ya asks me, boyo!

One more thing before I get off my high horse and walk again through the crap we all must walk through - who the hell gave Hume, and his sorry ilk, the right to tell ANYBODY they will be "forgiven"? Which, by clear extension, means they believe they also have the right to judge. I seem to remember something the cat they claim was the founder of their cult reportedly said. Something to the effect of, "judge not, lest ye be judged."

OOh, Brit. You are in suuuucchhhh trouble!

As for Tiger - admit it, Hume - yer just jealous. He's got waaayyy more wood than you ever will, baby!

And What Does Pop Culture Have In Common With Yogurt?

Now, I'll be the first to admit there may be nothing to the rumor, but I can't help but share the feeling best expressed by a character in a Hans Johst play, and popularized by Hermann Goering, "whenever I hear the word "culture", I reach for my gun." But to clarify - MY concern with people who talk "culture" is NOT with culture itself, but with those who pervert the entire idea of culture by selling the lie theirs IS the only culture, or at least, the only one with any true legitimacy. The Far Wrong, lets face it people, think moose hunting is high culture, superseded only by the successful hunting of abortion providers. But I digress (as if that should matter.)

The Royal Nut Jobs on the Far Wrong have been attempting to sell fear and lies for decades, so we really shouldn't be surprised by such el-crapola. Stll, one cannot help but feel the world will be better served if these bozitos would just attain collective laryngitis simultaneously. Its like this: Colbert = satire = funny; Beck = hate = not funny. Funny = culture; not funny = boring, which rhymes with Goering. Figure it out fer yerself, mein freund.

Of course, there is that special sort of "intellectual culture" the Far Wrong-o's like to spew, er, espouse. These toad men like to claim various aspects of science are somehow still in "controversy." They want people to debate the "controversy" of evolution; the "controversy" of global warming. They insist that "most Americans" are against abortion, conveniently ignoring poll after poll showing the real majority of Americans are against the abolition of the right to abortion. They believe that saying something in a certain way, over and over and over, at 140 decibels, makes it so, but this is merely their on-going lie, not just to the rest of the population, but to their own children, as well. Yeah, that's what Jesus would do, ain't it? Lie?

And fear? Boy, have these cretins really "got" Jesus' message, haven't they?

Truth, people? Lies and fear violate the primary commandment they tell us their "Lord" handed down - Thou shall not steal. Lies steal truth; fear steals trust and honor; murder steals existence.

The Far Wrong has been engaged in wholesale theft for decades, and trying to con everyone into believing they are more patriotic than the rest of us.

I got one thing to say to these bottom feeders:
