The Individual States of America

Where are we? I mean where are “we”, as in the together “we”.  The united we stand “we”.  And yes, the collective (shock) “we”.  The “Out of many, one” WE. Where the Fuck are WE?  Does that word even have meaning any more, besides the derogatory?  Besides the disgust of

Meander

Bill had lived on the street for 3 years now. It had been difficult at first.  But then like any new skill, he acclimated, learned the rules, and survived.  Not prospered.  No one can proper when you’re relegated to barely surviving outside of society.  He learned.  He survived.  He lived.

Oh come the F on. This is beyond bad comedy.

Ok, so I’m reading It Is Impossible to Keep Up With All the Economic Cluelessness (http://my.shadowproof.wpengine.com/dakine01/2011/06/13/it-is-impossible-to-keep-up-with-all-the-economic-cluelessness/) and I’m thinking WTF, how can they even say this shite? My blood pressure is definitely higher after having read that.  I took a few breaks.  There’s only so much I can take in

Are we attacking Iran in September???

Well are we?  Does anyone know?  Things like this, ie. a massive war against Iran (not a push-over), don’t happen overnight without people knowing about it. So I’m reading Dagan, Ofer and Israel’s Growing Iran Credibility Gap , http://www.juancole.com/2011/06/dagan-ofer-and-israels-growing-iran-credibility-gap.html, and it’s got me worried.  Not because it’s some crazy tale,

Nixon, the “gift” that keeps on giving … and now Ailes

So I’m perusing Rolling Stones, since they are one of the few outfits left that do any real journalism these days, and I come across this … How Roger Ailes Built the Fox News Fear Factory -The onetime Nixon operative has created the most profitable propaganda machine in history. Inside

Am I Missing Something?

This is a comment I wrote for Daveparts’ Part of the Plan (http://my.shadowproof.wpengine.com/daveparts/2011/05/26/part-of-the-plan/). I was wondering if anybody had any answers or ideas about this so I’m tossing it out there. (And please be gentle, this is only my third time.) Seems like the whole world is going insane. Nothing
