don't worry, be happy

Skynet loves you and has your best interests in mind.

one definition of insanity

...you keep doing the same thing over expecting a different result.

But who am I kidding? A lot of people made, and continue to make, a pile of money off the last collapse.

if they didn't exist, the bank$ters would have to bankroll 'em

the Black Bloc

...The presence of Black Bloc anarchists—so named because they dress in black, obscure their faces, move as a unified mass, seek physical confrontations with police and destroy property—is a gift from heaven to the security and surveillance state. The Occupy encampments in various cities were shut down precisely because they were nonviolent. They were shut down because the state realized the potential of their broad appeal even to those within the systems of power. They were shut down because they articulated a truth about our economic and political system that cut across political and cultural lines. And they were shut down because they were places mothers and fathers with strollers felt safe.

Black Bloc adherents detest those of us on the organized left and seek, quite consciously, to take away our tools of empowerment. They confuse acts of petty vandalism and a repellent cynicism with revolution. The real enemies, they argue, are not the corporate capitalists, but their collaborators among the unions, workers’ movements, radical intellectuals, environmental activists and populist movements such as the Zapatistas. Any group that seeks to rebuild social structures, especially through nonviolent acts of civil disobedience, rather than physically destroy, becomes, in the eyes of Black Bloc anarchists, the enemy. Black Bloc anarchists spend most of their fury not on the architects of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) or globalism, but on those, such as the Zapatistas, who respond to the problem. It is a grotesque inversion of value systems.

Because Black Bloc anarchists do not believe in organization, indeed oppose all organized movements, they ensure their own powerlessness...

Fortunately for Wall Street, it seems likely the Company already has.

masters of the obvious

The government has lied to everyone to keep money rolling into the Endless War machine?

Ya think? But I guess to be a lie you have to actually believe it in the first place.


some needs to tell the Editors likely the silence speaks volumes

Answer: It's like Military Intelligence

Question: what is a "pro-life liberal"?

I thought all liberals are pro-life by definition.

Open to new behavior or opinions and willing to discard traditional values.

Planned parenthood and contraception are life affirming and hence pro-life.

But do not think 'pro-life" means what some think it means. Apparently it means mindlessly consuming all resources in a blind genetic rush towards a Malthusian catastrophe. You know, like a third nuclear World War over food, water, and fossil fuels.

Now that's something the Church understands.

getting the cash train rolling

This may not just be noise to placate the Democratic base. Now that Wall Street's backing Mittens the Laureate might view raising the possibility of future prosecution as a way to get the bank$ters more invested in his re-election.
