What a Jerk

My letter to Matthews and MSNBC:

I just want to say that Chris Matthews' conduct including both his choice of questions and commentary regarding Dennis Kucinich and UFOs was despicable. Looking at Matthews, I honestly don't see what your network seems to see as talent. He comes off as buffoonish and stupid more times than not, and last night was no exception. It seemed to me as though he viewed his purpose as, how to make the candidates look foolish, especially in the cases of Kucinich and Richardson. I would have expected such behavior from Bill O'Reilly, Sean Hannity, or any of the other spewers from Faux News, but not from representatives of NBC, which I assume still views itself as a legitimate news network.

h/t to JP for the suggestion to write as well as the email addresses.

Now Hear This

All you pencil dicked boys with man sized dreams. Or is it pencil dicked wannabe men with boyish dreams?

Fuck it.

One of the things that's frustrated the shit out of me since day one with my blog is: How many ways/times can you say the same thing? ie Bush.

Fuck this idea of "bush bashing." There is no such thing. I criticize Reagan for his notions of Government not being able to solve problems when Government IS the problem, but the thing is that in the case of Dubya, Reagan was right: He (dubya) IS THE problem. Without him... we would not have runaway deficits. Without him... we would not have of cowboys and Indians being played out with real lives and live ammo with real casualties..Operation Hammer and Anvil..Operation Plymouth Rock..Operation Lightning..Operation Stinky Linky Log...Oops... that was leaked by a Secret Service guy standing guard outside the shitter. Bashing implies lying; making shit up. When you talk about the cesspool of corruption that Dub has brought about, well, where is the "bashing?"


So easy to get side tracked... hard to stay focussed. Back to the dreamers... These guys for starters:

Elliott Abrams Gary Bauer William J. Bennett Jeb Bush

Dick Cheney Eliot A. Cohen Midge Decter Paula Dobriansky Steve Forbes

Aaron Friedberg Francis Fukuyama Frank Gaffney Fred C. Ikle

Donald Kagan
Zalmay Khalilzad I. Lewis Libby Norman Podhoretz

Dan Quayle
Peter W. Rodman Stephen P. Rosen Henry S. Rowen

Donald Rumsfeld
Vin Weber George Weigel Paul Wolfowitz

Oooh sorry I didn't realize there were some women in there. Whatever you signers of the PNAC statement of Reaganite policy of...Moral clarity...

Iran is T-O-T-A-L-L-Y within their rights to want and pursue a nuke. Why?


If Dubya was not such a warmongerer, There would be no threat to Iran. And no need for them to pursue defensive nukes.

There would be NO Iraq War and no threat of an Iran War if it were not for Dubya. Period.

The question we should be asking is not, Why does Iran want a Nuke? The question should be, Can we assure Iran that W will be gone and soon they will be safe?

Jesus Wept

Pete Stark has apologized.

And emboldened the Terrorist-in-Chief.

Who the fuck can people of conscience turn to?

Is there someone...? anyone...? out there with more than just the semblance of a spine?

JP presents a better rant than I could, even if I wasn't so utterly flabbergasted.

The Full Monty

Here's Pete Stark's full speech to the House from the other day.

"...The truth is the Preznit just likes to blow things up..."

When are people going to realize that Bush isn't just a rube or a moron, but that he's really cruel, petty and heartless.

h/t to Crooks and Liars for the trail to the video.

My Nominee for Best Person in the World is...

Democratic Representative Pete Stark of California. Why? After the Republicunts failed to come to their senses in sufficient numbers to over ride Dubya's veto of S-Chip, Stark slammed them for funding a war with money that doesn't exist, and sending kids to Iraq to get killed for the Preznit's amusement.

Shortly after this, house minority leader John Boner, demanded Stark apologize. In a "Fuck You" to Boner, Stark said he has no respect for either the commander-in-chief or the Chickenhawks in Congress who vote to deny kids health care.

So sue me if the quotes aren't accurate; this is getting a lot of play on the Teevee and I'm sure will be on the tubes by morning. The thing is, I hope Stark stands by his words, as he has so far. I agree with him whole-heartedly: I DO believe the Iraq war is a source of amusement for Dubya. I've referred to it as Bush's Little Weenie War, as in the thought of it gave him a stiffy.

Fuck everyone who thinks Petey crossed some line with his statements. You Go Guy. Give 'em hell.

Come on... You KNEW They'd Do it

The Fucks News boys and girls just cannot stand that Al Gore won another prize. This time it's not just the rabidly anti-American Hollywood elite that seems to think he's done something worthwhile. No, this time it's the crazies from the Nobel committee. Or as Sean Vanity was so astute to point out the other night, the same retards who also honored Yassir Arafat and Mikhail Gorbachev.

You knew.

I know you did and don't even fuckin' try to tell me you didn't.

Congratulations Mr Gore. You've done more as the best President we never had to try to bring the world together than the worst Preznit we never elected Could ever dream of doing through his "Death, Bombs, Greed, Graft, Corruption and Destruction for Democracy" program.

BTW... I even noticed Billy krystal(meth) talk about war with Iran without that crazy assed grin he usually wears as he's pontificating.

A Few Corrections Are in Order

As some may know, I've been largely absent -- both reading and writing -- the past few weeks. It's weird: I get a mention on Crooks and Liars that boosts my hits through the roof, and then go poof. Oh well. Ten hours, seven days a week... sleeping with my head on the keyboard gets real old, real fast. I had the last two weekends off which helps, but...

Physically I've just gone to shit these past two years. First it was knee surgery in September '05, then I blew out a disk in February '06, and since May '07 I've been dealing with Carpal Tunnel symptoms, which leads me to my first correction: D-Cup over at Politits had a Birthday and I failed to congratulate her. Or would she rather we mourn? Congrats Babe; live long and prosper. She also mentioned me as one of her BlogHotties; a mention which greatly flatters me, Thank You, Sweety, and said I was back from surgery. Maybe I wasn't clear when I mentioned it first, but said Carpal Tunnel surgery has yet to happen. I don't know when said surgery will happen. Back in May when I first filed a Worker's Comp claim, it seemed a no-brainer.

Five Fuckin' months. OK, I don't write all that often on state/local shit (no real reason for that, I just don't), but there's a ballot measure coming up in WA: Referendum 67. Insurance companies versus trial lawyers versus people versus... It's not perfect (never is), but supposedly it balances out a law on the books that protects insurance companies from fraudulent claims, by providing people to sue for up to triple damages when insurance companies deny/delay payment on legitimate claims. Or something like that. I hear and read shit about frivolous law suits and such, but the one that gets me is the mantra: This will cause insurance rates to rise, to which I say resoundingly: BULL FUCKING SHIT! This, among other things, is what causes rates to rise:

For about a month now, I've been waiting for an approval from some organization called Qualis. These assholes have been contracted by the state to... well... you read about it here. So in a nutshell, my doc sends all my info over to them, they look at it and then decide that I can, or cannot, have surgery. How long should this effort to streamline things take? My doc said two weeks; she also said they seem to be behind. Well after two and a half weeks, the wife calls Qualis, and they say thay have no info on me. Sooo... my doc sends the shit again. A week later? Qualis tells my wife AGAIN that they don't have my shit. Now the lady at my Doc's office is pissed; Qualis is basically calling her a liar; anybody'd be pissed. Well FINALLY a few days later some bitch (and I say bitch, because according to Ms Thing who answered the phone, bitch is exactly what she was) calls and says they have my shit and will review it.

So how does this incompetence raise rates? DUH... because the state forks over tax dollars to a parasitic organization that exists to fill a need that never existed before they invented themselves to play fairy godmother. In the meantime, schmucks like me have to sit around feeling like we have our fingers stuck in a wall socket. Oh looky here.... they have,

"Web-Based Utilization Review via iEXCHANGE
A browser-based application that uses a secure Internet connection to allow healthcare providers to submit utilization review requests."

WOW!!! Impressive.

Privatization = Parasitism

Now I can't remember my other corrections. Shit.

BTW... Was I clear? I have yet to hear if Qualis has approved my surgery.

If ANY of this Shit Surprises You...

You ARE a fucking idiot.

Blackwater shoots indiscriminately and slaughters innocent civilians.
Congress calls for investigation, has hearings and hears lies.
Blackwater CEO steals his nameplate afterwards.
Iraqi government... the SOVEREIGN Iraqi govt (cuzz we made 'em that way) demands Blackwater's removal from country.
Iraqi Govt's demands ignored.
Bush Shit white house says demands for contractor oversite would create "intolerable condition."

NYTimes exposes leak of secret memo concocted by Abu Gonzalez allowing torture.
Dana Perino repeats past lies about how "We don't torture."
Dubya repeats past lies about how "We don't torture."
Congress calls for hearings, bless their hearts.
Hearings will result in more lies and amnesia.

Bush vetos SCHIP bill.

h/t to Firestarter5 for this one:
Anderson's orders, and the orders of 1,161 other Minnesota guard members, were written for 729 days.

Had they been written for 730 days, just one day more, the soldiers would receive those benefits to pay for school.

"Which would be allowing the soldiers an extra $500 to $800 a month," Anderson said.

Make no mistake folks, NO mistake was made. This is how George "Congress needs to get me more Blackwater money" Bush supports the troops. This is the True Repug vision of the GI Bill:
Bill the poor fuckers for their gear, their ammo, the shit they fail to bring back - for any reason - and while we're at it let's bill them for the medical care they already have to wait far to long to even apply for much less get.

If you voted for GWBush, you voted for a fuckstain who wishes to do nothing but destroy this country. If you voted for him twice, you are yourself a fuckstain.
