Name a Prison for him

E-mail Print PDF

Capitalism shouldn’t be confused with business or anything else that’s good for you.

Simply put, capitalism is the buying and selling of someone else’s business, whether it’s the looting of companies by the Leveraged Buyout Specialists at Bain Capital, or the monopolization of a particular commodity by the likes of Enron. A capitalist by definition does not create, does not produce, and does not contribute to anything but his or her own bottom line.

Capitalism is about the use of capital to one’s own advantage while taking what other people have produced, and nothing else. It’s not about workers vs. employers except that capitalism demands the exploitation of workers because there’s profit to be had there. That's not different from the profits made in war or any natural disaster when capitalists are allowed to take advantage of the situation.

Seeing Sunspots with Blurred Vision

E-mail Print PDF

In summer, around campfires, warming against the night chill, it is easy to stretch one's lower back in the flickering light, and look upward, launching one's higher mind, into the clouds of stars.

It is an always stunning notion -- looking up into the skies and into the view of stars, is gazing back in time, participating in time travel.  That light took a long time to get here, but it went the top end of the speed limit, the whole way, as fast as light can go.

Kookoo for Cocoa Puffs

E-mail Print PDF

Trying to follow the slow-motion demise of The U.S. of A. has turned me into Jo-Jo the idiot circus boy after being given an exploding cigar laced with a low grade nerve gas. It’s hard to make sense out of things when my neurons are winking out one by one like cheap Christmas tree lights. It’s a bad acid trip on every level I can think of.

On one hand we have a complete fraud as a president. While campaigning he presented himself as a force of change, but after being elected only changed things for the worse. Unless of course you’re talking about the members of the moneyed class. For those guys he did everything they asked him to except stop being a black guy.

Petroleum Economics 0.001

E-mail Print PDF

The right wing talking heads who serve the 0.001 are screaming about Obama betraying the country by killing the Keystone XL Pipeline project in order to pander to his liberal base. Liberals who are so crazed by this pipeline issue as to allow Romney to become President over it, will not support Obama anyway. They will not support him, either because of other issues, or because they believe he will simply approve Keystone the day after the election, regardless of the consequences.. His weasel words  - used in order to appear centrist on the issue - give them good reason to think this, but I'll bet 10,000 Romney’s that this pipeline is dead as long as Obama is President.

When the Cheshire Romney Fades Away, Only the Creepy Smile Remains

E-mail Print PDF

What is it that’s so creepy about Willard? It’s because Romney gets a certain look on his face when he thinks he’s said something overwhelmingly clever; it’s like he expects a certain reward. You see this a lot with right wingers; it’s something hardwired into their brains.  It’s occurred to me where I first saw this: his expression looks just like the one the old WB animators would put on the faces of the two human characters that Bugs Bunny always encountered stranded on the desert island. It’s when the one castaway would look at the other and see him as a pork chop; it’s insatiable hunger, barely contained anticipation and utter madness all rolled into one facial expression.

Semper Fi: "First, to Kill Someone, You Must Dehumanize Him..."

E-mail Print PDF

A letter from Alex Robenson to Mike Malloy:

OK, first I thought, and I very hastily wrote: "Nice one, the Semper Fi bunch, pissing on the dead Taliban, doncha think? Idiots. Semper Fi my entire ass." And, I then continued:

Quiet Rooms

E-mail Print PDF

A new Pew Research study came out this past week that focused on how the Americans view of class warfare has changed over the past two years. The numbers showed a dramatic shift toward more awareness of the inequality between economic classes, and this cut across all political demographics. Most notably, the change occurred without regard to party affiliation, with the greatest increase occurring among independent voters. That sentiment rose more than half, going from 45% to 68%.  The mumber among  Democrats increased 18 points to 74%, and even Republicans awareness of the rift increased 17 points to 55%.

These numbers don’t indicate why any of the respondents responded as they did.  It’s possible that the Republican and independent numbers reflect the perspectives of some who see a conflict, but view the rich as the victims in this class struggle, despite the lap of luxury in which their “suffering” takes place.
