Prochoice? Procowardice..

by cdreid

A known Terrorist named Scott Roeder recently murdered a man he hated. That mans name was Tiller and he performed late term abortions. That he performed late term abortions is irrelevant. He could have performed root canals or beaten puppies, it is irrelevant. This was a murder. So we all crank up dailykos to see the outragefest. We see people screaming that all prolifers are evil. We see people screaming to end free speech. People screaming to brand Operation Rescue terrorists.

You're all cowards

Victims and their punishment

by cdreid

This is a diary about Chronic Lyme Disease. Merely stating those three words in a row will have some Kossacks foaming at the mouth strangely enough. Its also called Post Lyme Disease Syndrome and calling it that somehow makes it less offensive.

The plain truth is though that a significant percentage of people suffer from this ailment and the american medical establishment (as opposed to medical practitioners) would like you to shut up and ignore them.

Why  should this concern you? Because according to at least one doctor Lyme disease is the fastest spreading disease after HIV.

Dear brown people

by cdreid

and to a lesser extent poor people.

We'd like to explain to you why we Can Not possibly prosecute George Bush and Dick Cheney for war crimes.

You see, in America we have a finely tuned judicial system. And we've spent hundreds of years tweaking every facet of that system to protect the right people

Enough BS : Barack it's time to lead

by cdreid

(note: i just drove 750 miles straight on little sleep so please bear this in mind re spelling and well.. general writing skill. I hope this gets the point across and calls us to Some kind of Sane action to stop this roller coaster ride through the right wing looking glass)

 We've all been watching the corporate media this week. Either wondering how badly they would misrepresent what is really going on with this disaster, or wondering what the rest of america is thinking. We werent disappointed. The media is currently spinning this crisis as caused by sub prime mortgages.That flatly is not true
 
  In fact faux and the republicans have been trying to spin this as the fault of .. wait for it.. minority borrowers. Despite the fact that minorities revieved a miniscule percentage of those loans. In reality this was caused by the complete removal of financial regulation. Our financial regulation system is currently voluntary.

Only Barack Obama can do this.

Over the last few days we've been subject to the latest use of the Shock Doctrine by the Bush administration. The plan this time is to launch yet another corrupt war. On the american worker.

And it worked.

We have the Democratic party aligning with George W. Bush. (Just in case the Onion had at least ONE potential headline left) to push a plan to force the american worker to pay for open corruption and incompetance on wall street.

Bernie Sanders isnt standing for it.

I shouldnt admit this on a national blog. But yes.. i have super duper double secret hacks on the NSA's quadruple top double top special secret listening devices on the gop. These quadrisensitive uberphonic earhorn 3 models caught every word uttered after Obamas speech. The transcripts are in and we're sharing them with YOU!

And to start things off.

Lets just stop

by cdreid

I have been vehemently anti-DLC since they first exposed what they really were. When Bill Clinton was elected and began pushing thinly veiled Republican policies i spent many a night screaming at the tv as the media pushed republican ideals from both parties. By his second term i had all but given up on america. At least until the blogosphere brought us together and gave us a place to coordinate and fight back.

Thats' why when Hillary ran against the first democrat in my lifetime who spoke exactly the message i had been waiting for my entire life it became literally a battle of good vs evil. Hillary and her "nuke Iran" speech before the far right AIPAC vs John Edwards and his Fight for the Working classes.

My fellow democrats

by cdreid

Dailykos and the left blogosphere has gotten pretty bloody lately. The candidate wars this year have turned, at this point, more vociferous than they've ever been. Many of you are disheartened. Sickened. Literally dread seeing the comments or diaries on dailykos, mydd, atrios or whatever left blog some days. You want peace. You want us all to get along. You want us to come to understanding through discussion and polite factual debate.

That is never going to happen. On the day that does happen we are no a free people.

Why you should switch to John Edwards

by cdreid

This diary is a presentation of why i support John Edwards and why i believe you should too. It contains no attacks on other candidates and it would be preferable if none of the comments did either. The purpose is not to gore anyones horse.

John Edwards is fighting against the corrupt oligarchy that rules this nation. He has taken a brave stand and gotten astonishingly far despite rabid msm and dc opposition to his message. He is doing not what the consultants of all stripes urge but rather what we've alwayd demanded. If we cannot support that then all our words, our demands, our righteous proclamations have been meaningless

They looked hungry

by cdreid

Driving home from a shooting spree tonight i saw something that has become common in america. Looking for photographic opportunities in rainy overcast weather isnt easy. You tend to wrack your brain for places long forgotten. For ideas that arent commonly done. Coming up the offramp to go home it would have been easy to miss the man and woman on the side with a sign. In the growing cold they were huddled by the railing, covered in multiple layers of dark clothes to fight the oncoming winter.

They are the people we ignore. The people we put effort into making disappear. They have signs usually. Stranded. Hungry. Will work for food. The right wing media teaches us carefully about them. That they are all lazy. Alchoholics. Drug dependant. That helping them hurts them. They'll just use it to get more drugs.. More alchohol.. more whatever. They are poor and homeless. That proves they are inferior. Beyond help. Its' all their fault.

This is a diary about Questions. A diary that doesnt offer solutions. A diary that asks for a Diagnoses rather than prescribing a cure.

   We've all become used to living in Bizarro world. You are unamerican if you believe the president shouldnt be able to violate the constitution and the law at will. You are amoral if you do not support the torture of innocents. You are a traitor to everything the world war two vets fought for if you do not support secret death camps run by the american military and intelligence agencies. You are a commie if you do not support a large unaccountable mercenary army. You are against the troops if you do not turn a blind eye to the Rampant corruption in iraq. You are an enemy of your country if you point note that the only requirement to get a contract in Iraq or be appointed to a position of power is being a republican.

   But worse than all that is the ultimate irony. If you are a democrat who supports the Impeachment of the Republcanpresident and vice president for a list of crmes too numerous to name you are an enemy of the democratic party

Why you should vote NOT Hillary

by cdreid

We are in the most important political battle of the century. Our government is so rampantly corrupt that the public and documented disappearance of 12 billion dollars passes with barely a fuss. When Iraq is buying arms from China apparently because US provided arms were sold to 'insurgents'. When the US supports torture and runs death camps, and concentration camps in the US and around the world. When Corporations are the only "citizens" that matter.  When their corporate contrbutions not only determine who is elected, but who runs. When they write the laws.

And we are being told, once again, to hold our nose and vote for the lesser evil.
