Thanks to you readers who contacted me, wondering when I will post again. Well, ‘ere I am. Let’s see if I can catch up in just one article. What’s been going on…
SkeptiSys on his break
1. Tiger Woods has been attacked mercilessly by the government (Disney) for having consensual sex with White women. And for dominating a previously all White sport. Yes this is repeat news from 1912 – see Jack Johnson, Boxing champion.
2. The Obama/Exxon administration manages to be considered ‘left’ and ‘liberal’ despite:
a) nominating 2 right-wing corporate loyalists to be U.S. Supreme Court Justices. In fact, most of Obama’s position choices are right wing corporatists, many of whom served under Bush
b) turning over multiple trillions of dollars from the people to large banks that caused a depression, auto and gas industries that caused global warming, military companies that have committed murder, fraud, and the Iraq fiasco, and the Insurance industries that have caused our medical and disaster recovery to be the worst in civilization.
c) blocking all investigations into war crimes committed under the Bush administration, which itself is a War Crime.
d) Protecting large telecommunications companies that committed crimes by spying and wiretapping American citizens then sharing the private info.
e) Increasing the already sick military budget and escalating wars, resulting in well over one million civilians dead – many are women and children. Somewhere during this, Obama receives Nobel Peace Price from obviously stoned Nobel panel.
f) Declaring the President can order the assassination of any American citizen without oversight.
g) resisting all humane health options (single payer or public option) to assure record profits by scummy health insurance companies.
h) increasing the prison rate, poverty rate… and on, and on, and on.
Somehow the ‘media’ has defined ‘left’ and ‘liberal’ to include Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr, John Lennon, and Hitler. Take that Propaganda, old mother Russia!
3. The Catholic Church, obviously upset that they have lost their crown as Most Evil Institution to Islamic Fundamentalism - makes a comeback with their ‘we rape children’ advertisement campaign.
Here is Pat Condell with his unique view on the Catholic Church:
As an aside, did you notice that you are considered by pollsters to be voting based on ‘morals’, if you vote for a candidate that hates Gays, but not if you vote for a political candidate because you hate killing and rape by military and religious wackos? In this weird culture,to be more ‘moral’ means having more hate and bigotry.
I guess that is enough to get out of my hiatus. As always, be skeptical of everything, and make a joke out of everything. Peace and love!
