wake up (part 2)

While America obsessed about Brittany's shaved head, Bush offered a budget that offers $32.7 billion in tax cuts to the Wal-Mart family alone, while cutting $28 billion from Medicaid.

"Now, after she shaved her head in a bizarre episode that culminates a months-long saga of controversial behavior, it's the question being asked by her fans, her foes and the general public: What was she thinking?"-- Bald and Broken: Inside Britney's Shaved Head, Sheila Marikar,, Feb. 19

What was she thinking? How about nothing? How about who gives a shit? How's that for an answer, Sheila Marikar of ABC news, you pinhead?

The Bush budget is an amazing document. It would be hard to imagine a document that more clearly articulates the priorities of our current political elite.

Not only does it make many of Bush's tax cuts permanent, but it envisions a complete repeal of the Estate Tax, which mainly affects only those who are in the top two-tenths of the top one percent of the richest people in this country.

The proposed savings from the cuts over the next decade are about $442 billion, or just slightly less than the amount of the annual defense budget (minus Iraq war expenses).

But what's interesting about these cuts are how Bush plans to pay for them.

If the Estate Tax were to be repealed completely, the estimated savings to just one family -- the Walton family, the heirs to the Wal-Mart fortune -- would be about $32.7 billion dollars over the next ten years.

The proposed reductions to Medicaid over the same time frame? $28 billion.

Or how about this: if the Estate Tax goes, the heirs to the Mars candy corporation -- some of the world's evilest scumbags, incidentally, routinely ripped by human rights organizations for trafficking in child labor to work cocoa farms in places like Cote D'Ivoire --

if the estate tax goes, those assholes will receive about $11.7 billion in tax breaks.

That's more than three times the amount Bush wants to cut from the VA budget ($3.4 billion) over the same time period.

The family of former Exxon/Mobil CEO Lee Raymond, who received a $400 million retirement package, would receive about $164 million in tax breaks.

Compare that to the Commodity Supplemental Food Program, which Bush proposes be completely eliminated, at a savings of $108 million over ten years.

The program sent one bag of groceries per month to 480,000 seniors, mothers and newborn children.

Here's the thing about the system of news coverage we have today.

If the Walton family, or Lee Raymond, or the heirs to the Mars fortune actually needed the news media to work better than it does now, believe me, it would work better.

But they have no such need, because the system is working just fine for them as is.

The people it's failing are the rest of us, and most of the rest of us, apparently, would rather sniff Anna Nicole Smith's corpse or watch Britney Spears hump a fire hydrant than find out what our tax dollars are actually paying for.

Shit, when you think about it that way, why not steal from us?

People that dumb don't deserve to have money.

wake up (part 1)

frankenstein's disbeliefs

humanist values


rep. michele bachmann (R-MN) is an idiot

she's so dumb she can't even lie about iran's involvement in iraq

from think progress:

"Iran is the trouble maker, trying to tip over apple carts all over Baghdad right now because they want America to pull out. And do you know why? It’s because they’ve already decided that they’re going to partition Iraq.

And half of Iraq, the western, northern portion of Iraq, is going to be called…. the Iraq State of Islam, something like that. And I’m sorry, I don’t have the official name, but it’s meant to be the training ground for the terrorists. There’s already an agreement made.

They are going to get half of Iraq and that is going to be a terrorist safe haven zone where they can go ahead and bring about more terrorist attacks in the Middle East region and then to come against the United States because we are their avowed enemy. "

how can public servants lie like that without accountability?

maybe she's working for someone greater than the american people?

This supreme bitch beat out a good prog candidate with lies, whispers and lots of Neoslut money.She appeared in a church service, for God’s sake, (no pun intended), informing the congregation that a vote against her is voting for terrorism.Any bets on the IRS checking out that churches nonprofit status?This is the same piece of work that wouldn’t let go of the Chimp’s shoulder after his SOTUA. Secret Service was 4-5 seconds from escorting her little white ass out of the building.I’m from MN & completely embarrased to have her in the House.The only good thing I can imagine happening, (See pic above), is her giving Bush a blowjob so we can impeach his ass.

happy Vday from dr.evil

i scooter libby:

roses are red

violets are blue,

if i go to jail

you're gonna go too.

harry whittington:

remember when you shot me in the face

well down here in texas, when i go anyplace

they say there goes the guy dick cheney shot in the face.

wolf blitzer:

it's true i crossed the line

but let's save the drama for the thespians,

your daughter had a baby

and that baby will be raised by queers.

unnecessary roughness

death after life

personally i don't care what happens after i die

and i'm not going to waste my life preparing for it

i don't understand where it is that people want to go?

i don't see anywhere remotely close that could sustain life

life is a brief and fragile existence on earth itself

for argument's sake, let say we all go somewhere

if you go somewhere with lots of people, who's in charge?

are millions of people controlled by an invisible force like the god we know and love?

or does god have a body?

if he does, then there must also be hundreds of thousands of beings appointed by god to control everyone

so that people don't take advantage of the system

people are inherently self-centered,

and any system is corruptible and prone to manipulation

so what's going to stop people from being greedy in heaven?

do they know any different if they were selfish and greedy their entire lives on earth?

so why waste time now wondering and worrying?

enjoy life here on earth, the life you know you get

and if you get another one, figure out the sytem and you're golden

and i know you're all smart enough to do that :)

now i know what you're saying

i shouldn't bother thinking about heaven because i'm going somewhere else

i have the same issues with hell

i guess it's somewhere underground?

how do you get there?

and if you did get there, do you have a body?

if i went somewhere and i had a body that was essentially fire resistant

i might be somewhat stoked

i love watching flames flicker

if there are millions of people in hell

there is the same likelihood that the system will be corrupt

even more likely, with all the evil living there

so why waste time worrying about it now

enjoy this life, and figure the next one out when you have to

i bet it will take less than one day to get up to speed

i wonder what heaven might look like?

i'm sorry

i just can't imagine heaven being more beautiful than earth

when i die

i will be content to reflect on all the beauty i experienced during my life

watch your back

only to say things

they are too cowardly to say for themselves
