Long Weekend Train Blogging

I'm riding the rails outta here, off to the West and Adventure! Okay, probably not so much. But at least I won't be at work.

This Be The Day, Buckos

Avast! Today be the day, buckoes, that landlubbers across the seven seas be thinkin' to pick up some pirate jargon and toss it around like a keg o' black powder. These scurvy codswallops have no respect for our cruel mistress, the sea. No, they'll be keelhauled at the first sign o piracy. I think i'll string the lot of 'em up the mizzenmast, and use their corpses for me mainsail.

An Ideology of Hope?

Matt Lauer, Katie Couric's (former) resident bootlicker, is talking to the president this morning. Bush has said we're fighting an 'ideology of hate' with an 'ideology of hope'. That sounds good, but are we actually doing that? As I see it, Bush's ideology of hope means everyone bends knee to Jebus Christ, whether they want to or not. This 'ideology of hope' is dog-whistle rhetoric to evoke the Jebus to his base, and sound good to people who aren't thinking enough. Bush is going to cram Hope down your throat, right after he blows up your house and family. Oh, and he's going to give away your country to his friends and you can buy it back someday if you can afford it.

Forcing Jesus is an ideology of hate. We're fighting an ideology of hate with an ideology of hate and greed.

On a related note, I have a question to ask the president: "Mr. President, some have suggested you're too stupid to hold a pair of scissors, let alone the highest elected office in America. To your credit, I don't quite believe them, but I would like to know whether your ultimate goal as so-called Unitary Executive is to sell off the country piece by piece to corporate conglomerates, shredding our liberties in the process, or rather to shred the Constitution and institute Mosaic law as interpreted by christian terrorists and turn this country into what Margaret Atwood called the Republic of Gilead?

I'm just curious about his answer, is all. Two masters, yadda yadda.

Matt Lauer is talking with Ted Koppel this morning about the tradeoffs between security and personal liberty. There's just one problem, Matt: We didn't trade liberty for security (and we all know what our favorite Founding Father Benjamin Franklin said about that), Matt, we gave up the Constitution so our Chimperor could throw money down a rat hole. Yes, a rat hole, hiding behind which are his corporate cronies, raking it in.

ABC's Propaganda

I have heard almost enough about the ABC whore-out to the right-wing as I want to. The only other news in this vein I want to see is that they've decided not to air it. After Jon Benet Cover-fire, I want the televised media to refocus on the ruling that our Executive Branch has taken the Constitution and ate it, shat it out, fed that shit to us, made us shit it out, and then made us eat the shit that we just shit out.
