I have long sought The Man behind the curtain.
I believe I have found them, before you get all widgety and judgmental. I must remind those of faith, they demand tolerance of "belief".
Americans are, however, under siege. A class war has raged since the beginning of humanity.

Most of us have enjoyed Frank Capra's Christmas classic It's
A Wonderful Life.
I just re-watched Capra's Mr. Smith Goes to Washington.
Capra appears to be utilizing his propaganda skills, honed in his pro-American/anti-Nazi films to promote socialism.
In Mr. Smith Goes to Washington Jimmy Stewart… Read full post »
I've decided I want a beautiful, sweet, rich, intellectual
philanthropist as my "match".
In return I'll provide: I'll provide~~~~~what the hell will I provide?

Capitalism is nothing more than a tool.
No better, no worse than any other tool. A gun is as good or as bad as the man using it.
The classic western Shane included a man of self-restraint, self-regulation, level headed logic.
Today, Shane is as common as pixies, or common… Read full post »
In response to: Taxes and Fairness 8/24/11
"Soak the rich"? "Labeling" (employing a negative connotation) is "in the air" (and on the air) in these days of sound bite news.
The wealthiest top 10% of taxpayers provide 70% of tax revenue. That seems a little low, considering they own in excess of 83%… Read full post »
~~~ The Reagan Years Begin
1980 was the year we needed Ronald Reagan to save us from the communists. We were suffering through the Iran hostage crisis under Carter's watch. Carter's rescue attempt ended with helicopters crashing in the desert. Our confidence was low.
The hostages were immediately relea… Read full post »
For years I felt the loss of Ronald Reagan. As though the Ronald Reagan, I lived through no longer existed.
He was being ripped from my memory. Only to be replaced by a new
and improved (or ruined, depending on perspective) version.
The memory of those 8 years blurred as history… Read full post »
I am fully aware this is an exercise in futility, since
supply-side economics is not so much an economic
system as it is a belief system. Belief systems are not bothered by
Their only requirement is that you believe.

As America bumbles toward default, the people charged with solving the problem act like spoiled children in a sandbox.
Appearing genuinely stunned when one side offers the other a toy
in compromise, then scream they don't want that toy.

So, I learned some new debating techniques last night.
A seemingly jovial fellow, went all Glenn Beck Berserko on me last night.
It started innocently enough, with my normal sarcastically cynical greeting.
I should've sensed things were about to go astray when he disparaged my lot in life. Telling me h… Read full post »
When one picks a side, they have chosen to defend that party's platform for better or worse.
For if their party is exposed as lying d-bags, they become d-bags by association.
Now, it's my assertion that both political parties are chock full of self-c…
-Ball-Sack Dragging In Toilet Water
Here we are, drowning in evidence that many of the people in charge are gluttonous fucktards.
In their world, there is never enough. They deserve it all. There's a sucker born every millisecond.
In their world there is no such thing as "too big to fail".

A rather harsh critic of his own work, he was somewhat less than
pleased with his latest effort.
He reached for the cords of the computer and yanked them out. Marching the computer through his wine haze to the dumpster. Copies and disks followed to their fitting end.
He'd done a service to… Read full post »
He opened the door and there she was, soaking wet and

Rain dripping off her nose.
"I'm here for the memory."

"Yes Pooh. There's no chance for us, other than the memory."

Men sit around and discuss beautiful women. No secret there.
There are men that love freckles or brunettes and blondes or redheads. Men that love olive skin or smiles that light up rooms... This is not so rare as when inner beauty matches or exceeds outer beauty... Then, you can only… Read full post »
Fire-Crotches: Burning Bushes of the 21st Century?
We've all heard George W. Bush proclaim "God, spoke to me." Is it a coincidence God once again spoke through a Bush? We think not.
Is it possible fire-crotches, such as Lindsay Lohan's, are the inst…

Texas Stadium, where the Giants are about to face the Rangers.
Where George W. Bush ran the club into the ground and pocketed a
buttload of money on the sweet new stadium deal. Yes, a buttload,
that's why he always wears baggy pants.
In this scene the Giants are playing a completely… Read full post »

Most of us drive around bad areas of town. Hell,
ghettos don't even exist anymore. The
politically correct term "urban areas" cleaned
everything up with the ease.
Our minds also drive around bad areas. Areas devoid of hope are not pleasant to visit in reality or the subconscious. Easier to avoid than… Read full post »
Being a paranoid delusional American idiot is not easy these days.
Having witnessed the conspiracy that lead to our economic demise
and subsequent bailout of the guilty, it's hard to not to feel
surrounded by conspiracies.
I don't know why I have these nightmares, it's irrelevant I guess.
