Get Your Date With Bachmann

by Blue Bronc

Sometimes you get invites you want, sometimes you get invites that you never wanted, and then there are invites you share with others. This is one of those.
Michele wants to talk to you. Well maybe not exactly you, but one of the Romneyryan bots.

The goods below the escargot

Due to many things in my life I ended up on many Republican email lists. Some were from the RNC, a few were from opo research links, and some are by those who thought it would be maliciously fun to put my email address on the idiot lists.

Here is the body of the email that the subject line meshes with. There are no links, you should not have to endure the dirty feeling that these slimy bastards ooze.

A Deliberate Sadness

by Blue Bronc

The constant "9/11 and a one and a two and a 9/11" is the Republican dance. We are supposed to hate everyone who is not a white, male republican trying to return to those glorious days before the Civil War.

The media gleefully latches on to the Republican dance because they know there is money in it. Whoring for the Republicans is the best way to get the raw nerves touched. And raw nerves bring in advertisers. Along with most of the media owned by a handful of corporations.

This day is one of remembrance, not this political sado-masochistic dance that is reinforced by daily intoning by the talking heads. Our nation needs to break the cycle of grief, and especially forced grief. This is a deliberate sadness forced on us to keep us in the grief cycle. Never getting out of the loop. There is money and political power to be made by having a nation in constant mourning and grief.

9/11 is the day the Republicans see as the start of their glorious theocratic and corporate dictatorship. Hell, Bush the idiot floated out the idea of not holding elections if he felt it was not safe to do so. Since that day they have needed to keep Americans down and going down economically with a message of "we will keep you safe" all the while meaning "we will destroy you and your kind until you accept a theocratic dictatorship and live on breadcrumbs".

The constant, deliberate and intensifying attack on America by the Republicans has almost turned a proud country into a banana republic. We have a population "scared" into believing the crap fed them by the media and Republicans. This is a "deliberate sadness". This is what 9/11 means to me now.

Trust Us - It Won't Hurt You

by Blue Bronc

In the current "destroy America" world of the Republicans there is one sacred industry so radioactive to touch we are told it is critical to the future of our country and must be given free rein. The VA legislators have enjoyed their bribe of a vacation in France for this industry. They have no fear of it now and should be quite willing to give it everything that the Cooch has said is dirty.

The one part of the industry we look at is the very one the Republicans say "Trust us - it won't hurt you".

This article from out west is about Cotter, a company that is radioactive in many ways. HuffPost has the first of the articles regarding Cotter getting permission to dump 90,000 gallons of radioactive stuff in to a holding pond (never mind the pond leaks). This morning in a litigation happy Denver newspaper the article is how Cotter is requesting to be relieved of its requirement to measure the ph of the pond. Why you may ask? Due to the high level of radioactivity which is probably frying the employees.

Ah - the sweet sounds of BS coming from Republicans and the uranium industry. It won't hurt you.

Need Misdirection - Blame "illegals"

by Blue Bronc

Failed presidential candidateMcCainis claiming "illegal immigrants" for setting Arizona on fire. I guess this is similar to Brewer's claims of de-headings, but without the bodies. Although McCain probably has some reason to make this claim, perhaps running for president in 2012, the veracity is still to be determined.  Especially since the Forest Service says it is not true.

Thinking about this made me realize what a gift it is to have "illegal immigrants" around to blame problems on and distract from real problems.

30 Militants Killed . . .

by Blue Bronc

One of the Bush administration consistencies carried over by the Obama administration is there are always (or almost always) "30 militants killed" in whatever action is taking place in Iraq or Afghanistan.  This has been a staple of the war "reporting" since Rumsfeld dictated that the wars would be censored, including hiding those killed from the public.  At least Obama has loosened the fact that we have our brave young men and women being killed in these unending wars by allowing some remains returns to be shown.

The American public is being well shielded from the major action that is taking place in Afghanistan to a large degree (any possible reason the timing is during the Vancouver Olympics?).  There is some reporting, but nothing when compared to other wars and conflicts; the Viet Nam Conflict comes to my mind.
