Pissing on the Post-Born: The Third-Worlding of America

It's not about outsourcing jobs, it's about in-sourcing poverty and pollution. Taking some of that poverty and pollution from the Third World, where they've been hoarding it, and bringing it all back home. (No offense meant to the Third World, where No Blood for Hubris and family lived happily for many years).

Just as Bubble Boy has worked so hard on the hard work of cutting taxes for the wealthiest of the wealthy, the middle class finds itself pancaked down into and onto the lower classes, and they onto the lowest classes, as American society becomes completely re-structured by dualism: US vs. THEM, HAVES vs. HAVE-NOTS. It's so much easier to remember this way, is it not?

We have girly-man pundits like George Will letting us know that the days of union wages are all over, and that the days of health benefits are all over, and that the days of retirement plans are all over, and we had all just better suck it up right now. (George himself is not on the having to suck it up list, however; this is because he possesses the divine virtue of: funds.).

Then we have yappy black-heart neo-cons intent on building Alaskan bridges to nowhere while cutting back on the already feeble benefits available via Medicare and Medicaid. Well, they spin, this is how we're going to pay for Katrina! We'll cap benefits, and then when the poorest of the poor and sickest of the sick actually croak, we'll save money. We can rob Peter to pay Paul, it's all in the Bible!

Yes, and we can cut back on armor for our troops, and cut back on treatment for the PTSD the troops acquired via their engagement in battle--in a war that was started basically because the sophomoric black-heart neo-cons wanted to start a war. They got away with that one. So far.

They've gotten away, so far, with hurtling America into Abu Ghraib moral bankruptcy thanks to psychopath sadist Rumsfeld and his minions Miller and Sanchez and Gonzalez. whilst simultaneously hurtling America into total fiscal bankruptcy.

I'd like to see this stop. part of me would like to see them all pissing their lives away in Gitmo (the other part of me tells me not to think like that).

But even that, delicious as it may seem, will not put our Humpty-Dumpty Post-Fall America back together again.

Looks like it's Dust-Bowl time. Looks like the mighty America has fallen. How will we ever repair the damage done to us by the black-heart neo-cons and their criminal hubris?

How ever did we come to be ruled by the criminally incompetent, the morally dead?

Forget about Drownie, try Karen Hughes' latest moronism: time after time, even AFTER she had been corrected, she overstated Saddam Hussein's war crimes by a factor of two hundred and ninety-five THOUSAND. OK, sure, that's not as bad as giving the imprimatur to torture like Yoo and Gonzalez and Rummy, but still, how can we tolerate having persons in authority who believe that facts are fictionizable?

The neo-con answer to global warming is--white out the offending paragraph. Their answer to problems with affirmative action is--delete the offending information. Their answer to problems with their lies to sell the Iraq war is--shoot the messenger by outing his wife. Venal is as venal does.

Similarly, stupid is as stupid does--our president is not only the hyper-insulated, dimwitted Bubble Boy, but also the plastic spastic Bobblehead Boy who can't put together a simple declarative sentence, whose feeble mind holds zero facts while clinging for dear life to a passel of sappy platitudes--on a good day.

How stupid can you be and keep on getting away with it?

Why, for these people, is stupidity acceptable?

Who got away with making brightness a bad thing?

Why, why are we ruled by these awful people, awful people like Wolfowitz, spit on their own combs and then spread their own spittle over their heads? (Literally and metaphorically.)

Feh.

To whom it may concern: a horrible blogger bug has struck, I will be losing all my links and tweakings. It will be some days before I will be able to reconstruct same. Forewarned is forearmed?

Man, you make it hard to keep the faith sometimes. Look, all of your blogs seem to be about men. There are women in this country, on this Internet and damn it, trying to fight this war.

Second, it's a huge mistake to keep calling Bush stupid. He isn't, they aren't, they have damn near dismantled this country in less than six years. That isn't the work of stupid people or simply a result of gullible people. That is planning for thirty years, huge amounts of money and time and patience.

Bush is smart enough and I'll be taking him and his minions very seriously in the fall elections.
