Right Bak at Cha (a chat among friends)

And so the dialogue goes something like this --
Not-so-silent Rollah (NR): hey Mr. Positive, it's me, the pessimist. Remember how I was saying America is an empire in decline and all that? Scroll around our blog, it's got good stuff. Obama may be the smartest guy to be elected Prez. ever, but how smart can he be if he can't get re-elected against this loser crop? We're still in agreement that ending wars might help, right? Whole lotta deficit crap to waste a trillion dollars now and then, but aside from all that, you are welcome to comment. How about something like a quick 'how-to' guide, some steps that we the people can take right now, to help ourselves and a few of our fellow citizens? Leadership is accountability my friend, but you know that. Vancouver: the new Malibu.

"Paul Revered", long-time friend, hopeful new contributor (PR): This was sent to me today on facebook. Now is the moment to change the country. Now is the time to change the system. Now is the time to wake up the masses to the fact that they have lost the class war. The average American is earning less and and can look forward to spending more on everything from gas to water. You heard me... because people are conserving water, like the water companies told us too, we have to pay more because their revenues are down and they cannot afford to deliver water.

NR: I admire your platitudes, but they're a tad vague, n'est ce pas? How are you changing the system? How are you waking up the masses? I haven't had a raise in 5 yrs, in some of my peak earning years as well. What action can I take right now, Mr. Now? How can I help?  Re: the article, my take-away in 2 words: "making things" - the US doesn't make anything anymore. Income disparity is at an all-time high, but 1 of the 2 major political parties is morally bankrupt, sometimes outright racist, and opposed to a guy who's about as progressive as a corporate centrist can be. Reagan was not transformative b/c he was the best politician (he wasn't even a good one); he was considered transformative b/c he sold his generation a bill of goods. Court, meet Ball.

J's 'blue' period

When J speaks, we post.  Play along at home: put an 'H' (for HIGHpocrisy) in the post if you spot something -- 

"I hate to admit it, because I have always prided myself in being a pretty positive person, but I think I have officially sunk to the depths of “Club Cynicism”. I am so tired of the endless suppository of Fox News horse hooey that is routinely torpedoed up the rectums of the mindless idiots that keep bending over for more. Torn and bleeding, these mental midgets continue to wrap themselves in the American Flag and scream about the dangers of socialism and entitlements, gobbling up the heaping tubs of steamy excrement shoveled into their eager mouths by people who really don’t give two shits if these morons instantaneously combusted and disappeared forever. [H]

Worse still are the people who have the power to affect change and can’t manage to summon the intellectual capacity to take on this nonsense. The arguments being made by the GOP are so dishonest and transparent, yet the Dems are at a complete loss to expose them for the malignant cancer they are. This is why the first commandment of the members of C2 is “Distrust All Politicians”. The only thing to conclude is that they are ALL THE SAME. All they care about is getting re-elected and staying in power. And another thing that gets me is this whole idea that politicians are “public servants”. That’s another load of crap. Fat budgets, huge staffs and cushy hours are light years away from the definition of “public service”. Politicians make more money than teachers…….and work far less!

Nope….there is NOTHING we can do but wait for what is sure to be a “Financial Rapture” of enormous proportions that will create a tipping point for drastic change. Maybe the US dollar is no longer the financial currency of the world and it is substituted with the yuan? When Americans’ investments become worth only a fraction of the value their owners calculated them to be…….that is when the revolution will begin and there will be sufficient critical mass for real, meaningful and lasting change. But for now my friends, I am convinced it will get much worse before it ever has a chance to get better again."

abbott & costello?

J, what is with these NY jews of mine, first Spitzer and now Weiner?  Spitzer-Weiner, the jokes write themselves.  He better not resign.  More BS, more shiny objects that push the Batshade Queen out of the spotlight, but only fleetingly.  "Losing one from our team is not the same as losing one from theirs!" -- Paul Revere

Lost my head(er)

Why is this even in any way, shape or form, under the heading of "analysis"?  Facts do not enter her mindset, her alternate reality.  Otherwise, she wouldn't be queen of the batshade.  Facts are for losers, the lamestream media.  Here's a better reality check, something we said here long before O'Donnell: she wants money and fame, but without having to work for either.  That is not presidential, that is Fox.  She can't handle the truth, that is also Fox.  Pity me, pity me, pity me.  As long as she can keep milking the cash cow, she will keep pretending to run.  End of story.
