Ahmadinejad is a Closet Homosexual

Look at this: http://www.nytimes.com/2010/09/24/world/24nations.html?_r=1

I’ll bet that prick takes it up the ass from anything, including camels. How dare that scumbag claim to be talking for AMERICANS at the UN. Who the he’ll does he think he is? Not only is he a lying prick, but he is preaching from a pulpit he does not deserve to lick clean.

I am really sick and tired of the extremist getting all the press. Why is this asshole allowed to further incite fanaticism? Why do we allow this scum-of-the earth to even speak at the UN? He and the Iranian government are backwards, ignorant and dangerous. The people of Iran are the biggest victims, being held hostage to ancient and bigoted beliefs.

The worst thing we can do is give him and the Iranian government any credibility. They are the lowest form of animal – it’s too bad the US screwed up Iran so badly back in the 70’s. We would probably not be dealing with this now.

Pressure is Power

When the oil rig sank, outrage followed. The worldwide public outcry brought one of the most powerful corporations – ever in human history – to it’s knees. BP is the type of company that does not answer to governments, yet we eventually got unprecedented access to the facts, and in a few cases the actual truth. The outcry became political power as elected officials worldwide were forced to take action or face a hostile electorate.

The oil has stopped flowing. Billions of dollars have been guaranteed to clean up the mess. The people of the Gulf are (hopefully) going to be able tonreturn to their livelihoods soon. All this is happening SO THE PRESSURE WILL GO AWAY! The industry’s dirty laundry has never been so naked for the world to see.

We had the power – WE did. It did not matter what corporations made what deal with what government. For a short time all the money and power in the world could was at the mercy of the people. It was brilliant, spectacular even, to see the PEOPLE of the world unify to such a degree that BP was actually held accountable and could not squirm away.

Now the well is capped, and the corporate leaders and government officials are waiting for things to calm down so they can get back to their status quo. We cannot let that happen. We got a glimpse of the power of a unified world population. Screw the governments, screw the corporations, when WE decide to get up and make a stand, world leaders cower.

Unity of voice, and unrelenting pressure on the media and government is what got the well capped. We have seen the power of the people in this new interconnected world. If we can globally leverage this power we really can change the world.

Supreme Court Rulings and the Gulf oil spill

Filed under: Politics — therantingman @ 6:33 pm

Not that long ago the supreme court ruled that corporations have the same right to spend money on elections as people in America. This allows them to spend money on influencing elections and trying to change the laws to benefit – guess who – themselves.

Well, if they enjoy the same freedoms as Americans, then the leaders of these corporations should be accountable for their crimes, just like everyone else. If they want to be able to promote their needs directly to the American people, then they must be accountable to them.

The people responsible for the gulf oil spill are criminals. Period. They spend millions, tens of millions to insure that they have no regulations to follow. Then when this oil spill happens the people who made the decisions are out yachting. What is going on in this country? Are we so afraid of big corporations that we have given up?

The Republican Party is the most anti-American group in the U.S.

The Republican party is sitting in committees preventing any and all govt nominations. They feel that if they cannot govern then no one should. How bad is it? They recently did not oppose an NOAA appointee because they feared bad press as a result of the Gulf oil spill. So it takes the worst oil spill in history to get the Republicans to move? How ignorant and self-righteous can you be?

This is the most childish, irrational and damaging behavior I have seen, and has convinced me that the Republican party has no interest in protecting the Constitution or America, or even being a part of it. All they care about is winning and pushing their agenda on the American people. No interest in popular discourse or majority rule. If they can’t have it their way they will direct all their efforts to prevent others from running the country.

The Republican party leadership have gone way off track. I don’t even believe at they have any concern for the issues, only how the issues can be manipulated for their own goals. They cannot allow any Democrat to be successful because then they will be harder to beat in the next election.

Why is our government is all about winning elections? When we have so many problems to deal with, is it really rational to prevent people from trying to solve them? We know that these problems are only going to get worse, yet that doesn’t matter to them. This is all about arrogant white men who are willing to destroy our country from the inside so they won’t have to admit that their policies did not work.

Al Queda does not need to execute any more attacks in the US. The Republicans are doing exactly what he wanted – dismantling our economy and military with insane and embarrassing policy decisions.

Richard Shelby – THE LOWEST FORM OF POND SCUM!!!

Filed under: Politics — therantingman @ 12:35 pm
Tags: , ,

Richard Shelby has decided that the effective running of the US government is not as important as the pork projects he wants for his home state of Alabama. He is blocking ALL government appointees from the Obama administration with no justifiable reason. THIS is the problem with this country – people using the system for their own selfish gains instead of the good of the country. If we were able to remove the ability of ignorant childish cocksuckers like Richard Shelby then we could maybe get something done in America.

These are not men – they are childish girls who are so impotent that they cannot get their rocks off unless they have acquired some measure of power and used it to screw someone else. I’m sure when Mr. Shelby was a junior Senator he had to deal with an ignorant scumbag who stopped his legislation. So of course, turnabout is fair play, right?

Senator Shelby needs a message. The problem is that he does not listen to people, only power. So those folks in AL who think they have a friend in Washington? Think again. He will sell you out for a nickel and then kick you in the street.

We need to tell these pandering power-whores that the rules apply to them as well as everyone else.

Free America!!!! Eliminate Punditry NOW!!!!

Aren’t you sick and tired of being pushed to the extreme by the politicians and the media? Is this how we get things done in our own lives? Why is it that no one can get anything done unless they have beaten the opponent to a bloody pulp in public.

How does this lack of public discussions help anyone’s cause? Ask yourself that. We teach our children to share and work together. It is a common theme that people can come together and respect our differences while accomplishing our goals. That is what this country is supposed to be about, but if you believe that you are kidding yourself.

We will never be able to resolve the bigger issues of our world unless we can stop arguing with each other and start to work together.

And it does not matter if you are liberal or conservative if you are broke.

Rush – a Fat and Worthless Slug

Filed under: Politics — therantingman @ 1:29 pm
Tags: , , ,

Rush Limbaugh has done absolutely nothing for this country except destroy our faith in the media. I cannot understand why anyone is interested in his medical condition or the fact that he went to the hospital. The only concern I have is the fact that he walked out of the hospital under his own volition and not on a gurney with a toe tag.

Hearing him stand in front of people and tell them that our healthcare system is just fine truly disgusts me. It shows that he is truly out of touch with reality of the American people. There is no excuse for him and his lies and deceit. What Limbaugh is only interested in making Rush Limbaugh wealthy. He has absolutely no interest in the people who pay his salary or the country that allowed him to be successful.

I want to debate him. I am putting out an open letter to Mr. fat-ass that I will stand toe to toe with him and make him look like an intellectual moron because that is all that he is.

So what about it Mr. Limbaugh? I know you don’t have the guts, so I won’t expect a reply. The true mark of a coward is how well he hides.

Joe Lieberman is a Liar, a Cheat and a Selfish Pig

Filed under: Politics — therantingman @ 12:22 pm

Joe Lieberman has sunk to a new low. Now that he has realized his vote on health care is a swing vote he is playing it to the hilt. He THINKS that he has the power to kiss-ass and hand the conservatives what all the concessions they want. He must do this in order to save his career. It is clear now that his support in the polls and in CT is dropping like a stone.

Lieberman sickens me. He panders AND LIES to his constituents and does whatever he wants in Congress. People need to know that Joe Lieberman is looking out for himself only. He does not care about the people of America, let alone the people of CT.

There is not a shred of decency, honesty or civility lefty in Joe Lieberman. He sold out his constituents to continue his political career. Whatever good he has done in the past means nothing now. His influence is that of the corrupt establishment, intent on maintaining his status by standing on the backs of others.

Now the worthless pile of S**T is using what little political influence he has left to try and gut health care reform. He is doing this by threatening to filibuster the bill unless they make the changes HE wants. It is no surprise that his changes are EXACTLY what the Republicans want to remove from the bill as well. If that does not sound like collusion and corruption I don’t know what does.

There is a group attempting to organize an effort to remove Lieberman from his committee chair before the people of CT vote him out of office. The web site is http://www.liebermanmustgo.com. Please, PLEASE show your disgust even if you don’t live in CT. If we complain loud enough as a people then other elected officials will find it harder to get elected on lies and then vote for lobbyist causes.

Age Does not Equal Wisdom Anymore

Filed under: Politics — therantingman @ 2:38 pm

Until recently human survival was a VERY dicey thing everywhere around the world. Most children died while young, there were no usable medicines and the average life expectancy was around 40. To get to that age you had to be very strong, smart AND have a tremendous amount of luck.

Today anyone with access to modern medical care and knowledge can live to be well over 70. This includes people with physical and mental disabilities, as well as those who are just plain stupid.

Given this fact, it is no longer true that age equals wisdom. I know many people over 60 who have less wisdom than my pre-teens (they seem to lose it all at puberty, unfortunately). Despite this we still give deference to anyone who is wrinkled or has gray hair. Moreover, older people have a tendency to assume that they are entitled to the same respect that used to be bestowed on village elders and scholars. This allows the uneducated and stupid to join the ranks of our greatest thinkers by merely not dying. This makes no sense to me.

I hear many elderly discussing the problems of the world as if we had stopped progress 100 years ago. As a group they are incredibly selfish, primarily concerned with maintaining their personal comfort in their waning years even if that will hurt their country and the planet. Many of the elderly stubbornly adhere to old beliefs and practices even when they have been disproved and shown to be harmful to themselves and everyone else. I’m not talking about paying with a check at the grocery, either. Driving huge gas-guzzlers (when many should not be driving anyway), dismissing all conservation efforts and supporting conservative policies to make sure Medicare and their Social Security are still there are just a few of the issues I have (and don’t get me started on supermarket etiquette). It is not all seniors, but there are MANY whose gullibility and selfishness make them easily manipulated, and those doing the manipulating often are only using them for their votes.

Now I am not saying that Grandma wants to see her grandkids suffering in horrible economic and ecological conditions. But they seem to have this ability to ignore the potential consequences of our actions, and they cannot admit that their generation made mistakes that we have to fix. Until Obama we have regularly elected older people, and defer to them on policy when they are still in pre-cold war thinking.

Many of these people are the ones running the companies that spend so much money lobbying to prevent change in DC. We need to get the elderly influence under control in this country and stop treating every gray-haired person like a fount of wisdom, because most of them are not.

I’m Really Scared……

It seems that the Republican machine will stop at nothing to make sure that the changes we need to make to save this country never pass the halls of our government. They would rather us all die together than to admit for even a second that they could be wrong. This is not about doing the right thing anymore – it is about making sure that nothing other than the right-wing Republican extremist agenda is even considered, let alone voted on.

I used to think the Republican party has been acting like the spoiled kid at a party, yelling and screaming at the top of their lungs because they did not get their way. Now I feel it is much more sinister. I feel that this is an intentional effort by the Republican party to prevent real change. Then, the Republicans will use the lack of change as a weapon against them in the next election

The Republicans are not interested in governing; they are interested in TACTICS to remain in power. They do not care that these tactics are costing people jobs, inflating our debt and causing irreparable damage to our environment. Those are collateral damage, a necessary cost of making sure the Republicans stay in complete and total power over the US.

Unless someone who is sane can take hold of the leadership of the Republican party I am not sure what we can do. Even when Republicans are complaining about their own leadership the party just blasts propaganda at them until they shut up. This is not a problem we should be dealing with now. We have too many problems to be pissing away time fighting these ignorant and unnecessary battles.
