They Piss On Us And Don't Even Bother Anymore To Pretend It's Raining

They're really seem to enjoy getting in our faces these days. Sure, you'll always have slime dripping repug whores bought and sold by corporate interests or that douchebag governor up in Wisconsin waging war on unions. The unapologetic Bush mob crime spree. Total clowns like Palin or Huckabee, who despite trillion dollar wars and financial bus plunge, declares abortion to be his number one priority if elected president. No, we don't need to be reminded where the party of blood drenched, power mad sickos stands because they're usually right up front about it all. You won't find contrite in their dictionary. "You got a problem with that? Suck me."

Some say Obama was elected president because the people wanted change from the eight years of unbridled misery with the Bush mob. People say his administration was saddled with inherited problems and that in trying to muddle through them, well, mistakes are made. I sat that's utter bullshit. Obama and his crew were forced on us to seamlessly continue our shrieking free fall into the depths of corporatized ziofascist hell, that started with the rethugs and their masters' 9/11 false flag, pedal to the metal lollapallooza.

Only Obama was supposed to do it with a friendly flourish and a big toothy smile to make swallowing their agenda easier to do without vomiting. Rage against unrepentant GOP criminals last decade had to be diffused, enter the OBama Pressure Release Safety Valve Change Contraption, eerily identical to the Bush fascist machine but with a fresh coat of paint. This crew was placed in power to pretty up an unbroken continuation of the same old, same old. Cliches and rebranding ruled the day, you could smell the fresh mist of hope sanitizer in the air and the new bosses began furiously re arranging the deck chairs, all the while picking our pockets while we paid attention to the balloons.

But just like the morning on Black Tuesday it didn't take long at all to figure out something was pretty much fucked. For me it was like three or four months. That it was going to be Bush's third term with the potential to get far, far worse. Jeebus the list is long; the myriad insults and failures are breathtaking to behold for anyone who bought the change platform con job. At least I had the sense not to hold my breath waiting for some of that promised healing to kick in.

There is a slight bit of change, of a sort, I suppose. The Obama crew started to emulate the the other side of the coin in that they don't even bother to care any more about PR or image or reputation. The prez actually awarded a sickening mass murderer with a medal last week. The world watched as the US was the only veto at the security council at a vote to slap Israeli wrists over settlements.
But those things don't move the hoi polloi to anger as much as something the screaming chimps in Wingnutland are sputtering over. And in a way they have a point, although criticism about Bush doing the same thing lifted nary an eyebrow.

At his recent press conference, Obama began with some opening remarks:

Just like every family in America, the federal government has to do two things at once. It has to live within its means while still investing in the future. If you’re a family trying to cut back, you might skip going out to dinner, you might put off a vacation."

Once you become a rich bubble dweller you have to keep lengthening the separation and further remove yourself from reality. Obama seems so oblivious that after that press conference where he chided the great unwashed to skip a vacation to keep granny from eating cat food, he sends his family on a most excellent ski trip to Vail, Colorado, a month and a half after a ten day jaunt in Oahu. It's that sort of "let them eat cake" shit that's causing a few, um, problems in other countries.

You're getting good with that hammer guy. Obama has made it clear that both parties serve the same masters, and if you try to follow the 12 plus trillions he's doled out to the banks I think we can begin to see who exactly those masters are.
I'd heard the name Eustace Mullins for a couple decades,(usually preceded by the words "virulently antisemitic,)but only recently started reading him. His study of the Fed 60 some years ago is the most informative I've found, and even in his writing about the holocaust I've yet to find anything I would characterize as antisemitic. I've been pro-union all my life but they seem strangely uncritical of Obama's breaking virtually campaign promise he made and at this point they seem to be just another player in the Democratic party power

Don't mind at all, Shirlene. Nothing's proprietary on this site.

That article you shared is just staggering anon. The biggest monetary theft in human history courtesy of a burgeoning fascist police state.
