While the citizens of the country await their shackles to corporate healthcare from the ruling class, the global game of power and corporate interests continues to play out around the globe. The rules of the game were set long before Obama became President and are as institutional to the ruling class as football is to Texas. The name of the game is to win, just as any game. Winning means staying at the top of the power rankings, the status of being number one and the treasures that follow. The United States, or rather those that are on the U.S. team, which includes many outside the U.S., has been number one since the end of World War II, almost 65 years.
We’ve reached the trillion dollar mark in defense and homeland security spending. One trillion dollars per year with no end in sight. Estimates of 1000 military bases worldwide with more being built as we speak. We have more nukes, more weapons, more ships, and more fighter jets than the rest of the world combined. We won. No one can touch us. So why can’t the game be over? Why can’t we start a new game?
Manifest Destiny was a policy of imperialistic expansion defended as necessary or benevolent. “Manifest Destiny was the 19th century belief that the United States was destined to expand across the North American continent, from the Atlantic seaboard to the Pacific Ocean. It was used by Democrats in the 1840s to justify the war with Mexico.”
“Manifest Destiny was always a general notion rather than a specific policy. The term combined a belief in expansionism with other popular ideas of the era, including American exceptionalism, Romantic nationalism, and a belief in the natural superiority of what was then called the “Anglo-Saxon race”.
Those beliefs or notions led to official government policies to commit genocide against the Native American peoples.
Fast forward 170 years. Manifest Destiny redux. The U.S. is still pretending to be a benevolent and necessary leader of the human race, spreading democracy and the ideals of liberty and justice for all. Westward expansion accomplished on it’s stolen continent, the expansion has gone north, south, east, and west. American interests of gold, pelts, and land have turned to interests in oil, natural gas, and corporate control.
Terrorists are still in the way, just as with the original Manifest Destiny. Native Americans were being portrayed as terrorists to the United States citizens well before the idea of Manifest Destiny was being espoused.
Geronimo surely had a different opinion as to who the real terrorists were.
The U.S. is and always has been an imperialist nation controlled by a ruling class. Since the end of the Cold War, the ruling class has had nearly free reign in expanding it’s global Manifest Destiny ambitions. Many millions of people have died or lived their lives in misery from the effects of U.S. imperialism. Those ambitions are at fever pitch in the year 2010.
This game won’t end. Not unless the American people put an end to it, which is highly unlikely. The game plan of the ruling class is the same as in 1840, and the reaction of the American people to the propaganda spread to support the actions of the ruling class is the same. The government says the terrorists are a danger to our way of life, which enables the ruling class to pursue their Manifest Destiny. Native Americans have paid the price for that. African American have paid the price. Iraqi’s, Afghani’s, Vietnamese, Koreans, Africans, Latin Americans, Eastern Europeans, all have paid the price for the Manifest Destiny of the United States of America.
I wish I could go back in time. If I had one opportunity, I’d go back to 1852 and land in Indianapolis, Indiana. I’d look up my Great (x5) Grandmother, Indiana Maxwell, and beg her to reconsider her plans to travel on that wagon train to Oregon City. I would tell her, “Grandma, we have to stop this now before it’s too late!” I’m not sure if she would understand. I know there were people back then that did understand. But as now, they are few and far between.

One of my favorate all time books and movies is Farenheit 451. Basically, the story follows Guy Montag, a fireman who burns books in a futuristic American city. In Montag’s world, firemen start fires rather than putting them out. The people in this society do not read books, enjoy nature, spend time by themselves, think independently, or have meaningful conversations. Instead, they drive very fast, watch excessive amounts of television on wall-size sets, and listen to the radio on “Seashell Radio” sets attached to their ears. Sounds familiar doesn’t it.
I couldn’t help but think of that book when I read that Cass Sunstein, the head of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, appointed by fearless leader President Obama, wants to ban conspiracy “theorizing”. This dude, a Jew from Harvard who taught at the U. of Chicago Law School, is calling for banning conspiracy “theorizing”. BANNING CONSPIRACY THEORIZING UNDER PENALITIES FROM THE GOVERNMENT! This guy was appointed by Obama, or rather Obama was instructed to appoint him.
“Sunstein also recommended the government send agents to infiltrate “extremists who supply conspiracy theories” to disrupt the efforts of the “extremists” to propagate their theories.”
I don’t think I can properly describe my anger at this information. Maybe I can. A Jew, one of the same people who control 95% of the mainstream media in western countries, a Harvard educated Skull and Bones affiliated bastard. Appointed by Obama as head of Information Control for the United States. A Zionist in control of America’s information regulations wants to come out and start banning anyone from talking about conspiracy theories and infiltrate private citizen groups to prevent the truth from coming out.
Fuck it. Ban me too. Obama is in bed with the Zionists and if it can’t be talked about, then get ready for book burning. If you can’t handle the truth, then don’t pretend you can.
Update: Good, GBCW.

Liz Cheney is a Racist.
I don’t mean to single out Liz Cheney, not that she doesn’t deserve it. She and her Dad are certainly not the only racists in this country. We have racists in every corner of our society. We have racists in every race. We have a wonderful melting pot of people from all over the world, with racists in every part of the pot.
Public support has always been necessary in this democratic society we live. Particularly with wars. Our government has always worked hard to insure support for its wars by appealing to the racist and fearful tendencies of the white people. Genocide against the Native Americans was carried out by painting them as “Savages”. They were uncivilized sub humans that were out to kill the white people and therefore, to be feared. Slavery was enacted and continued for hundreds of years by depicting blacks as savages. Ignorant savages, worthy only of the most menial tasks. The public viewed them as threats that had to be kept down lest they unleashed their savagery, and simple minded people who should be grateful for their provided tasks and meager subsistence. When the Native Americans tried to fight back, they were nothing but terrorists in the minds of the imperialist white nation. They had no rights in racist white America. The racism against those two races is still prevalent today.
For the past eight plus years, the United States has been waging a Global War on Terror (GWOT). Similar to the Native American attack on Albany, NY in 1704, the white man has used the occasion to force the gullible and racist public to accept its war on people of a different color. People that are different. Savages that must be annihilated before they kill the intelligent and superior white man, rape their women, and scalp their children.
Many now realize that most of the so called terrorists are acting in a manner similar to Native Americans from the 1600’s thru the 1800’s. They are fighting against an aggressor that threatens their existence. The same white aggressor that nearly pulled off a complete genocide of the Native American people over one hundred years ago. The same white aggressor that held other human beings as slaves in this country for over three hundred years.
To gain support for the racist GWOT, the general public has been told the same old story. We must fear. Those we are fighting against are savages whose only goal is to kill us. It doesn’t matter why they want to kill us. Only now, the white man is not the only racist. Support for the invasion and colonization or hegemonic control over the brown and black Muslim people crosses all racial boundaries. Not universally of course, but slavery and Native American genocide didn’t garner universal support either. The juxtaposition of of African Americans supporting attacks in Yemen, Somalia, and the actions of this country that assisted the near genocide in Darfur is overwhelming.
Approximately 60% of the people in this country favor racial profiling based on the GWOT. Considering the white race makes up about 65% of the population, and many whites do oppose racial profiling, the only conclusion is people of races who have themselves been subjugated by the white race are now supporting the white man’s racist drive for power.
Sure, Liz Cheney is a racist, as is her father. Harry Reid is a racist. President Obama is a racist. The majority of this country is racist. Anyone who supports this Global War on Terror is a RACIST. In a democracy, the majority rules, so we should change the name of this country to the United States of Racists.

Yemen. Who wants to bet there is more to Yemen than meets the eye? Come on, it’s easy money. Bet me!
Winner! A cupie doll to those who bet. I can’t give you anything better because, after all, it was an easy bet.
“The strategic significance of the region between Yemen and Somalia becomes the point of geopolitical interest. It is the site of Bab el-Mandab, one of what the US Government lists as seven strategic world oil shipping chokepoints. The US Government Energy Information Agency states that “closure of the Bab el-Mandab could keep tankers from the Persian Gulf from reaching the Suez Canal/Sumed pipeline complex, diverting them around the southern tip of Africa. The Strait of Bab el-Mandab is a chokepoint between the horn of Africa and the Middle East, and a strategic link between the Mediterranean Sea and Indian Ocean.”
But that’s not all folks:
“In addition to its geopolitical position as a major global oil transit chokepoint, Yemen is reported to hold some of the world’s greatest untapped oil reserves. Yemen’s Masila Basin and Shabwa Basin are reported by international oil companies to contain “world class discoveries.” France’s Total and several smaller international oil companies are engaged in developing Yemen’s oil production. Some fifteen years ago I was told in a private meeting with a well-informed Washington insider that Yemen contained “enough undeveloped oil to fill the oil demand of the entire world for the next fifty years.” Perhaps there is more to Washington’s recent Yemen concern than a rag-tag al Qaeda whose very existence as a global terror organization has been doubted by seasoned Islamic experts.”
Oh my, it is becoming all too predictable. I think if I was an imperialist, I would be amazed that those Al-Qaeda fellers keep popping up in the most opportune places. Well, maybe not, I suppose I would completely understand it, since I fucking would have engineered it!
Somalia. Black Hawk Down.
“The infamous Somalia military operation of 1993, popularly depicted in the Philadelphia Inquirer series (and subsequent Hollywood film) “Blackhawk Down,” was not a humanitarian mission, but an undeclared UN/US war launched by the George H.W. Bush adminstration, and inherited by the Clinton presidency. The operation was spearheaded by Deputy National Security Adviser Jonathan Howe (who remained in charge of the UN operation after Clinton took office), and approved by Colin Powell, then head of the Joint Chiefs.”
Why Somalia, such a poor country.
“As laid bare in the January 1993 report by Mark Fineman of the Los Angeles Times, “The Oil Factor in Somalia,” US oil companies, including Conoco, Amoco, Chevron and Phillips were positioned to exploit Somalia’s rich oil reserves during the reign of pro-US President Mohammed Siad Barre. These companies had secured billion-dollar concessions to explore and drill in large portions of the Somali countryside prior to the coup led by warlord Mohammed Farah Aidid that toppled Barre. The US Somalia envoy at the time was CIA operative Robert Oakley, a chief “counter-terrorism” officer during the George H.W. Bush presidency, and veteran of the Afghanistan and Iran-Contra operations of the 1980s. Conoco’s Mogadishu office housed the US embassy and military headquarters.”
Full Spectrum Dominance. Class. Class!! CLASS!!!
“Joint Vision 2020 addresses full-spectrum dominance across the range of conflicts from nuclear war to major theater wars to smaller-scale contingencies. It also addresses amorphous situations like peacekeeping and noncombat humanitarian relief. Key to U.S. dominance in any conflict will be what the chairman calls “decision superiority” — translating information superiority into better decisions arrived at and implemented faster than an enemy can react.”
Right now, I’m seeing Eddie Murphy impersonating Fred Rogers. “Can you say, Military Industrial Complex?” I don’t know, if I was Eddie Murphy, I’d like to think I would be very angry at the United States causing such death and destruction to those of my own color. Want proof?
Darfur. Genocide. Why?
“When Darfur does occasionally make the news — photographs of burned villages, charred corpses, malnourished children — it is presented without context. In truth, Darfur is part of a broader oil-driven crisis in northern Africa. An estimated 300 to 400 Darfurians are dying every day. Yet the message from our media is that we Americans are “helpless” to prevent this humanitarian tragedy, even as we gas up our SUVs with these people’s lives.”
Ah, we’re helpless alrighty. But at least it was Bush.
“In short, Sudan embodies a collision between a failed state and a failed energy policy. Increasingly, ours is a planet whose human population is devoted to extracting what it can, regardless of the human and environmental cost. The Bush energy policy, crafted by oil companies, is predicated on a far different future from the one any sane person would want his or her children to inherit — a desolate world that few Americans, cocooned by the media’s silence, are willing to imagine.”
Oh wait, maybe not. Obama seems to be proceeding down the same path. Courtesy of a mentally incompetent 23 year old Nigerian kid. I demand that every black person in this country be interrogated to see if they are indeed affiliated with Al Qaeda or not.

I have reached a personal turning point at the beginning of 2010, a year when I was young, I was certain I would meet George Jetson. I’ve been involved in political blogging for about two years now. Certainly not long compared to the impressive seven or so years some can claim, but enough to have brought me to my turning point. I’m a pretty quick study and in some ways this whole experience, among my life experiences, is similar to my dabbling with Christianity in my twenties. A couple years of that and I was also saying, “OK, I get it, what’s next?”
Why have I reached a turning point? I guess the number one reason would be effectiveness. I like to be effective in what I do and I don’t like to waste my time. I don’t need these blogs as a hobby or to feel part of a community. Life is too short. Reason number two is that I am just not into electoral politics. I’ve never campaigned for a candidate, donated money, or been involved in electoral politics in any way other than this brief interlude on the toobs. Since my anti-establishment days in the late sixties to early seventies, I just never bought into the system. Donating money in particular has always seemed sacreligious to me in a way, in how it acquiecses to that system. That isn’t going to change for me.
Life took over since those days and family and career prevented me from investing much time in politics. For those that denigrate the hippies for losing their mojo and joining the establishment, I can just say, the times were a changing after the Vietnam war. The pace of society and the machinations of the political propaganda system simply didn’t allow for another common rallying point after the war, other than the environment. As with many, I got married and had kids. What then were my choices? Go live in a commune and name my kids Moonbeam and Sunshine, or go ahead and get my piece of the American pie. I chose the pie, not that I don’t have regrets.
Then, American dream accomplished, kids grown and out of the house, I had time to check out politics on the internet. From Atari Pong to political blogging in the blink of an eye. Quite an interesting experience for sure, and certainly very educational. Not just from what I learned from other people, but how it instigated me to learn more on my own.

Man, the world is in pretty sorry shape right now. Most of the planet was extremely relieved to see Boy Bush leave office. Unfortunately, the after-effects are nowhere near complete. Now, with Obama continuing most of those bad things, I see a Bad Moon Rising.
Humans have talked about it for eons, but it hasn’t happened yet. But we are ever closer to the Eve of Destruction.
There is no more democracy, not at the national level. Welcome to the Machine.
I feel like I’m on a roller coaster some days. Frustration, anger, apathy, bewilderment. All in all though, I Won’t Back Down.
I’ve tried to be logical, patient, and nice. That doesn’t seem to help so it doesn’t matter what they say, I Don’t Care Anymore.
This country needs justice for the crimes committed against humanity and the people of this country. It is time to arrest them all and force them to Testify.
The lemmings are in the way. We’ll just have to run them over if they refuse to Question Authority.
Obama has proven he is just a tool for the oligarchy and their plans to steal, plunder and destroy whatever they can. It’s amazing some still think he can look into his hat and pull out a White Rabbit.
Forty years later, we’re still fighting for real Freedom. Ask any GLBT citizen.
Regardless, I will keep on keeping on, with a Little Help from my Friends.
Keep it hot man, Java Hot.

Initially, I was completely skeptical of this latest so called terrorist act by a 23 year old Nigerian. The whole thing smells like a local mushroom farm during springtime. The incident shook the entire western world with an immediate increase in airport security. Blame games started immediately between the Republicans and Democrats. The Republicans took the offensive and left many wondering why the democrats weren’t fighting back. There are even calls to attack Yemen, because that’s where he supposedly learned how to do the dirty deed.
Somewhat belatedly, the democrats and the administration are fighting back. Obama is taking a low key approach so as not to create fear in the public like Bush did. Calm, cool, and collected. Good thing to, because I’m tired of attaching a video of “Duck and Cover” in my essays.
From the Whitehouse Blog:
“To put it simply: this President is not interested in bellicose rhetoric, he is focused on action. Seven years of bellicose rhetoric failed to reduce the threat from al Qaeda and succeeded in dividing this country. And it seems strangely off-key now, at a time when our country is under attack, for the architect of those policies to be attacking the President.
There are numerous other such public statements that explicitly state we are at war. The difference is this: President Obama doesn’t need to beat his chest to prove it, and – unlike the last Administration – we are not at war with a tactic (“terrorism”), we at war with something that is tangible: al Qaeda and its violent extremist allies. And we will prosecute that war as long as the American people are endangered.”
Hear that? OUR COUNTRY IS UNDER ATTACK! WE ARE AT WAR! WE WILL PROSECUTE THAT WAR AS LONG AS THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ARE ENDANGERED! That’s a low key approach for ya.
The party faithful are very pleased with that. Take that Republicans! Leave the terror fighting to Obama! Eric Massa is a new hero for taking on Darth Vader. It’s the republicans fault dammit, because they didn’t do it right! Shit Dick, you wouldn’t know a terrorist from a hole in the ground.
I just don’t know. I’ve typed the word IMPERIALISM so many times in the last year that those letters are getting especially worn on my keyboard. I’ve talked about the oil and natural gas pipelines, heroin psyops and off the book money for the CIA and banks, permanent bases to achieve Full Spectrum Dominance, the uncanny ability of terrorists to be located right where the resources are.
I’ve said too many times to count: THE WAR ON TERROR IS BULLSHIT! To be clear, not because there aren’t any terrorists. Sure, there are terrorists, most created because of our own foreign policies of death and destruction. But that is not why we’re spending one trillion dollars per year on “national security”. It is not why we have 1000 military bases covering the entire planet. The terrorists are in the way of our imperialist mission.
People need to WAKE UP!
Now we have a back and forth between our political parties on who is the best terrorism fighter. Who is best at keeping the American people safe. An opening for the Nobel Peace Prize winner to show the world just what he said he would do. It undoubtedly delays any major public dissent against the military industrial complex for some time. Then we’ll do it again. And his supporters are eating it up, while who knows how many of them are worrying about paying rent.
So, Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab, at first I refused to acknowledge you as a terrorist. But by the mere act of trying to light your balls on fire, you’ve done more than most. So I’ll give you some credit, and call you The Accidental Terrorist. You belong in the Pantheon.

I was born to Norswegian parents a bit over a half century ago. I’ve had a fairly typical working to middle to working class life. I went to school in a working/middle class community where there were few minorities. That was during the sixties and early seventies. I was pretty successful in high school, particularly in sports. I became very good at basketball and baseball and achieved all-state honors in both. I was good enough to receive college scholarship offers in both sports, and accepted one where I could play both. My father was gone by that time. But I went to college and did well in basketball my freshman year. That was my first real experience with people of color. Half of the team was black, and although I had played against blacks before, I never had one as a teammate. But I still remember Jon, Buck, Michael, Robert and Joe. We were all 18 and 19 year old kids who played together and partied together, and became friends. Whites and blacks together, away from home, in a family environment of our own for five months. I loved it.

I should start by saying this essay focuses on money, not the number of US military lives spent or those of the Iraq and Afghanistan citizens, and not the horrendous cost to the nations of Iraq and Afghanistan. If I had my way, that would be the true cost and the ultimate reason to end the wars. But the American public has become so apathetic to the sins of war, it seems the only thing that may awaken them enough to stop the madness is to appeal to their greed.
The United States military, NATO, and it’s hired guns will be in the Middle East and Central Asia for at least ten more years. Regardless the promises made by Obama, or the SOFA agreement with Iraq, there is no way military forces will be out of, or even drawing down from, either country by the end of 2011. The counterinsurgency (COIN) efforts currently being deployed as ordered by CINC Obama and directed by Generals Petreaus, Odierno and McChyrstal in both countries are generally agreed upon by experts as tactics that could take decades.

Liberals can’t support war. They simply can’t, not if they want to call themselves liberals. They can call themselves Democrats or Progressives, but they can not think of themselves as liberals. It’s that simple. Liberalism is reserved for those humans that do not and can not accept war and killing as an option in modern geopolitics. I’ll say this now, if you support President Obama’s surge in Afghanistan, please, for the sake of all liberals, do not identify yourself with this ideology.
Now I know so called liberals have been associated with war from the gitgo. Cain thought he was a liberal and he went and killed his own brother for crying out loud. Fucking Cain, see what you did man?
Presidents Truman and Johnson proclaimed themselves liberal even though they ordered the killing of people around the world. Ya, some think they can be liberal but still proceed with the pursuit of power and wealth by extinguishing the lives of five year old kids.
Madeline Albright, former Secretary of State under Clinton, as well as Clinton himself, have been portrayed as liberal democrats. Is it possible a liberal can say something like this:
It boggles my mind, I don’t know about yours, that a person can be perceived as a liberal and say something like that.
Liberalism is a broad class of political philosophies that considers individual liberty and equality to be the most important political goals. Liberalism cannot be applied selectively. A liberal can’t be a liberal within the confines of U.S. policy while ignoring the individual liberty of people in other countries.
Within liberalism, there are various streams of thought which compete over the use of the term “liberal” and may propose very different policies, but they are generally united by their support for constitutional liberalism, which encompasses support for: freedom of thought and speech, limitations on the power of governments, the rule of law, an individual’s right to private property, and a transparent system of government. (Wikipedia)
“Individual rights and equality of opportunity”. I’ve always thought the greatest “right” and the most important “equality of opportunity”, was the right to live. What else matters if you don’t live? Particularly the right to live without governments, those we want to limit, dropping bombs and white phosphorus on peasant heads. Innocent civilians don’t cause wars. Arrogant, self righteous and greedy government officials cause wars. A true liberal is a the most compassionate of people, a truth and justice seeker.
Modern liberal thought originated in and influenced the politics of The Netherlands, the United Kingdom and France. The first modern liberal state was the United States of America, founded on the principle that “all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness; that to insure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. (Wikipedia)
The United States government has never upheld the principles of liberalism on which this country was founded. From slavery to Native American genocide to fascist regime changes in South America, and to the current imperialistic endeavors in Iraq, Afghanistan and the entire world, the U.S. government has shamed the ideals itself advocated.
There will always be liberal people. There are also those that prefer to believe they are liberal yet are actually no more so than some that prefer to think they are a Christian. They may think it’s so, but their actions speak differently. Many simply don’t get it. Perhaps true liberalism is going the way of true Christianity.
“We have nothing to fear but fear itself”. We all know that famous saying. Few heed it when it comes to those in foreign lands. Our fear justifies the killing of innocent women and children. Our fear justifies spraying 21,000,000 gallons of Agent Orange on South Vietnam citizens. Our fear justifies our continued use of White Phosphorus, Willy Pete, in Afghanistan. Our fear justifies spending a trillion dollars per year on “defense” while we ignore health care, infrastructure improvements, and homelessness. Our fear allows our government to torture and kill. Our fear causes too many to trust a government that has lied to its citizens from the beginning.
We need a liberal reawakening and it must come with the cessation of permanent war, and a hard line on what constitutes being a liberal. We must uphold liberal values, the same values our nation was founded on, for all people in all countries. A true liberal doesn’t distinguish between a five year old child in Seattle from one in Afghanistan. A true liberal seeks to rid themself of contradictions regarding how liberalism is applied in all aspects of their life. A true liberal has no fear except the fear of justice, liberty and equality denied. Becoming a true liberal requires effort. We must keep liberalism from dying. End U.S. Imperialism.

I’ve seen all these open letters lately, to the President, Michael Moore, you name it, and I wondered what it be like to get an open letter. It must be something to read a newspaper or a blog and see an open letter addressed to you for all to see. Since it’s highly unlikely someone will post an open letter to me in any media outlet, I thought I’d do it myself. Can’t really stop me now can ya, cuz if you’re reading this, I already did.
I know you’ve been depressed lately. It’s not hard to see for chrissakes. Moping around all day like you have forever to live. Well, you don’t. You’re getting old brother and you better stop and smell the roses before there are no more to smell.
I know it’s hard to go on with all this shit going on. Wars, homelessness and poverty, unemployment, the world going crazy. You’ve seen clearly how the two major parties differ only in approach, with the same overall agenda to maintain the plutarchy. Remember when you learned about a plutarchy? Shit, you had to look that up didn’t ya? When you found that term, first you looked up oligarchy:
“An oligarchy is a form of government in which power effectively rests with a small elite segment of society distinguished by royal, wealth, intellectual, family, military, or religious hegemony.”
Whoa! That was an eye opener. It certainly seemed to fit with exactly what this country has become, even though you now know it has always been that way.
Then you looked up plutocracy:
“Plutocracy is rule by the wealthy, or power provided by wealth.”
Well ya, that’s true, but maybe oligarchy is better. Then you came upon the combo term: plutarchy.
“The combination of both plutocracy and oligarchy is called plutarchy.”
Plutarcy! That was it and you knew it. Money controls shit, but so does religion and the military industrial complex. And that New World Order thing with the stuff about thirteen families and the Illuminati. The family part! It’s out there bro, but you know you can’t push it away. You aint built that way man. Truth is truth and that’s what you’re all about aint it?
So you decided on plutarcy and then became depressed. Like it was all too much to overcome. Fuck that. Just because the lemmings are flowing over the cliff, doesn’t mean there aren’t many more like you. Non lemmings. You know there are and you just need to keep focused on them. Fuck the lemmings. And just because of your realization that the plutarchocrats just may be too powerful to overcome, fuck that too. You’re better than that. Lemmings are lemmings for a reason. Because they have no power. They follow. You aren’t a follower. You’re a big, mean motherfucker. They’re useless and no factor in the overall battle. They aren’t your battle, the plutarchocrats are the target.
So I encourage you to stay in the game my brother. You have much to contribute and you know the truth. That’s the key. You know the truth. It doesn’t matter if you get your facts fucked up now and then, or if you have doubts because of what others may say. Trust your instincts! Keep learning and fighting the good fight. I’m here if you need me.
Keep on truckin man.

That’s what President Obama evidently said to Representative Pete DeFazio based on his voting against Obama’s legislation, including the stimulus bill, the climate change bill, and one of only two democrats to vote against the bank bailout. According to The Hill:
“DeFazio has emerged in recent months as one of the most vocal liberal critics of the Obama administration, blasting the president’s team for not getting tough enough with Wall Street. He’s also taken on his own party for failing to move left-leaning legislation through the Congress.”
According to reports, it appears this president and administration is just as, if not more, sensitive than the previous president and administration.
“Obama himself has taken notice. “Don’t think we’re not keeping score, brother,” Obama told DeFazio during a closed-door meeting of the House Democratic Caucus, according to members afterward.”
To President Obama:
Ya brother, go ahead and keep score. You and your sidekick Emanuel. It appears Emanuel may exhibit symptoms of a classic Napolean bully, only picking on those who he knows he can beat up. A little chickenshit who only spouts off his mouth when his big brother is standing behind him.
“But Emanuel, known for his blunt manner and ability to bend members of his party to his will, did not raise his voice with the Oregon Democrat. “Rahm does not yell at me,” DeFazio said, “because he knows that I yell back.”
Well, brother, I can call you brother can’t I? You can call me brother just as you called Representative DeFazio brother. I’ve always thought all men were created equal, which means to me that I only have to call you Mr. President out of respect, if I choose. Sometimes I do, but you brought the brother thing up. You and your sidekick want to keep score do ya. Kind of like Nixon’s “Enemies List”? Did you get some kind of presidential playbook? We know what that means, you don’t say it for nothing. It means you will get your revenge. It was, pardon my french, a fucking threat. You will do something about that DeFazio dude for having the audacity to vote against your bills. Of course I don’t believe you have the guts, pardon my french again, to do shit. To that I say, go back to high school, brother, if you want to play those games. Eleven dimensional chess my ass. That’s pure bullshit.
Obama, the brother dude, is on the verge of becoming one of the tragic figures in history. Every dig of the shovel is creating a bigger hole with which he will not be able to climb out of. It appears his overall maturity level is not in keeping with the important responsibilities he has been assigned. He has proven to be a caretaker of the system, one whose only goals are to retain power and feed the corporate, MIC and Wall Street cash cow for himself, his cronies, and his interests, and lie his ass off to do it. And if anyone gets in the way, he is keeping score.
Back to the President:
Well, brother, we’re keeping score as well. So far, you’re behind. It’s only the first quarter of the game though. But you’re far behind now. You have your Obamabots, but they’re dropping like flies. You will retain a low 20 percentile just as Bush did. And the real left, and I’m talking about the real left, not those that think they are left, forget it brother. They’re gone. You aint getting them back without some kind of Hail Mary pass now. I don’t think you have it in you for a comeback. I think you’re outta there in four years man. And deservedly so.
