No Wonder Belief Is So Strong - This Is A Nicely Done Delusion

Note To John McCain and America

Advocating a "surge" in Afghanistan does not mean support for a "surge" in Iraq. Note to McCain- Bin Laden is still not in Iraq but along the Afghan/Pakistan border.

Withdrawing our troops from Iraq doesn't mean we "lost" anything.
Note to McCain- when you kill their ruler and take his castle, you'v won. Saddam is dead and his palace is our new embassy.

I'm sorry the best you could do was a wiener hut in Ohio while America's future was speaking to the world from Berlin. That is where your leader, George W. Bush has taken you, your party and the ideas you represent.

The rest of us aren't buying it anymore. Sorry. When you speak I hear the buzz of insects. Please stop.

The age of corporate welfare is over. Take heed. Change is coming and you aren't going to like it. You've pushed America to the wall and we're biting back now.

We will solve our own energy problems without big Oil, if that's what it will take as you've now made it affordable to develop alternate and renewable sources of energy.

We will not allow you to drill off our coasts, just because. And we will not allow you to manipulate us with the price of gas to change that.

There is enough oil in shale rock to change the planet, there is no need to take a chance on destroying our coastline and the delicate ecosystem of the ocean when we have an alternative. And we won't tolerate being manipulated.

Government, remember, we own you. Not vice versa. And it is the government that owns the shale oil. It's time to tell government what we want.

This government has failed us. It is time to rebuild governmnet with service to the many as its goal. Service to the few is not working so well anymore.

The problem with trickle down economics is that you assume we are happy with a trickle. You are wrong.

Get ready for a new day.

Wake up America. The shale oil is yours, not "theirs."

Maybe it's time for the government to compete with private industry to produce what we need to meet our energy needs. Private industry has failed us.

One Million Names On The Terrorist Watch List

Wow! Just what is it going to take to outrage the average American?

My God, while they were worrying Billy might actually marry Bob the rest of us were getting fucked.

Seems like their politics of fear is coming after us one by one.

Just what more needs to be said?


No wonder the Nazis got away with the Holocaust. We are a country of douche bag conservative, tobacco chewing, nascar racing hicks whose idea of higher education is 3 credits at community college after being rejected by the University of Phoenix.

What's it going to take to dismantle this freakshow? The 2nd Amendment?

I'm buying a gun today.

The Republican Party Is A Terrorist Organization And Has To Be Shut Down

Ronald Reagan - Junk Market Stock Market Crash of 1987

George Bush the First and John McCain - Savings and Loan Crisis

George Bush the W - Just Look Around

Phil Gramm - we are a nation of whiners. Yup, Mr. Gramm, you're right. And now it's time to take action. You are guilty of helping create the Enron mess as well as this one. I believe in personal responsibility. You need to be in jail.

George W Bush - you need to be in jail.

Dick Cheney - you need to be in jail.

Donald Rumsfeld - you need to be in jail.

Condoleeza Rice - you need a real job and a makeover.

It's a shame it's against the law to tar and feather these people.

Let the run on the banks begin. Hope you like Ramen.

An Open Letter To Lou Dobbs

Rather than singing the same songs to the same choir night after night why don't you put your money where your mouth is and do something that may help change this country instead of just whining about it? What I mean is we have a solution to not just the oil crisis but the ability to render oil besotten tyrants impotent. It's called oil shale and we have, in just a few states, more than five times what the saudis have. Congress passed an act in 1910 allocating these fields to the federal government to develop. Exxon was there until they pulled out in 1982.

What wasn't profitable at $25-40 a barrel is mind numbingly simple at $147. Just the threat of bringing this supply to the market might create some relief, perhaps down to a level where it's not profitable to produce. But no one is talking about this. And you, with the loudest mouth and highest criticism of anyone with whom you don't agree should have jumped on this...but you were too busy engaginig in self promotion to actually make the "best news team on the planet" actually do their jobs. By the way? If "the best news team on the planet" had been doing their jobs for the last eight years we might not be in the sorry state we're in. So how about doing some homework and presenting some solutions instead of trying to sell books and xenophic ideas?

U.S. oil shale reserves in the USA total 1.5 trillion barrels of oil – more than five times the reserves of Saudi Arabia. What was once prohibitively too expensive to produce when oil from the Middle East was $25 – 40 a barrel is now ridiculously cheap.

Shell seems to care. Exxon doesn’t. Exxon shut down its Colony Oil Shale project in May of 1982. Imagine having so much oil we could tell the assholes of the world to go fuck themselves. The entire geopolitical landscape would change.

Most of our shale reserves are under the control of the U.S. government since a Congressional act in 1910, the Pickett Act, authorized President Taft to set aside oil bearing land in California and Wyoming as fuel sources for the Navy. From 1910 to 1925 the Navy developed the Naval Petroleum and Oil Shale Reserves Program and it became official in 1927. Roosevelt expanded the program in 1942 as we mobilized for WWII.

So where do we stand today? Maybe it’s time to make Congress earn their paychecks.

Why Nuke Teheran?

How many of us stop to think about the majority of humans on our planet and how they live? While we debate the merits of American Idol and celebrate the cult of ego masquerading as cable news entertainment in many parts of the world consists of rummaging through the garbage dump on the outskirts of town and news is what your mother tells you is important that day. While we celebrate in a kaleidoscope of ways, the delusion of our lives and how they’re reflected in our broadcast images we don’t think about the hundreds of millions of humans without clean water to drink. We’ve spent a hundred years reinforcing that delusion, why change now?

The fact that most of our own people think the Flintstones are a documentary, the earth is less than 10,000 years old and that we were created by a designer shows how dangerous our lives have really become. Especially when there’s a country that not only wants to kill us but has told us so, told us how, told us when and told us why. And we attacked the country next door.

Chicken Little only gets one chance to get it right. W got it wrong. Now when we are going to have to respond to the danger Iran wants to become, how able will we to make the right decision? That nation is going to have to be delivered a reality check because they are insane. They believe the 12th Imam has been hiding since the 13th century and will reappear in the third year of chaos to bring about the end of the world as we know it. They’re dangerous whack jobs as opposed to the other whack jobs on the planet who base their actions on pleasing the figments of twisted imaginations.

This cannot end well.

I Can't Define Smarmy But Know It To See It

The very picture of desire. One can only guess at what he's talking about. But why guess? One meme he's become a regular at injecting into the national discourse is the idea that we might lose the war in Iraq when Obama becomes president. And what follows is that since losing is wrong, our losing the war would be wrong. But he's an ass and most of us know it.

So for those who have forgotten the issue, let's revisit the whole Iraq thing. OK?

We won the war. Got that red voters? Even your leader told us so when he proclaimed, "Mission Accomplished." But I call winning when a country invades, takes your castle, kills your king and takes your treasure. I believe we did that. Except the treasure thing. We've never been a country that cared much about treasure. Probably because we give ours away.

Anyway, for those who are trying to confuse the American people as they try to vote for change. We won the war. We are losing the peace.

And, like Vietnam, it is once again the fault of politicians and not the soldiers.
And John McCain should know that.

So if your going to spin, please do so in time with the music, otherwise you end up looking like that guy above.

Will The Real Jesus Stand Up

Whether your vision of Jesus is the more traditional imaginary one of the soulful face with long hair, beard and expecting eyes,



the more accurate picture of him as a real man of his time, place and culture.



We have the Book of Matthew, the Book of Mark, the Book of Luke and the Book of John, plus scads of other works apocryphal, anecdotal, etc. BUT

there is NO Book of Jesus.

Why is that?

Why did the most influential man on the planet leave nothing but hearsay behind?

And if something sounds stupid it generally isn't true.

So it's probably not true that Jesus left no written works behind.

That means whatever was left behind was destroyed.

The ramifications are truly staggering.

Is This The Next President Of Colombia ?

Welcome Back From Captivity - Ingrid Betancourt, former Presidential Candidate when kidnapped by FARC.

You know what to do now.

Will Bush Close Guantanamo?

Only if he want to get rid of all the evidence before Obama becomes President.
