tour going badly

Yay, Putin!

a guess



Bernie’s timing is impeccable as always

and while pundits and outsiders 💩 on the D party, people feel differently – funny “election” this

This needs to be front and center no matter what else he is blabbing afterwards. Operative words WHITE and HUMILIATED


and Bree Newsome decodes this  for us

and here’s an entire talk against “identity politics” a darling RWNJ talking point

and this is where he came from – that red island in the ocean of blue who voted for Hillary


after refusing – again- to join the Democratic party, Bernie keeps lecturing us

and also

to be sure, “fixation with diversity” is attacked frol alt left abd alt right


It’s not that complicated, Slate: white supremacists are the bad guys and their allies too – no matter how famous – another “racehorse” coverage – like the election

Here’s wonderful Debra and Kurt

Here’s another privileged dunderhead Paltrow – excited by it all

Ironic, huh?

an interesting observation


and the planet began to heal?

This McCain commercial recals it best (ht WMCB at the Confluence)

I guess he forgot to specify that the slowing down of the oceans would be accomplished by replacing the water with oil.

Here’s Philippe Cousteau on it

“I could cut my leg off, I could cut my arm off, I could gouge my eye out, I’d still probably survive, but not very well,” Cousteau said. “And that’s what we’re doing to our oceans.”

Pointing to massive annual dead zones off the U.S. coast, Cousteau explained that our oceans are past their tipping point:

Heck of a job, Oprecious!

For added fun, use this map to compare the size of the spill to your home town. Here’s mine. Can you spot NYC?

Just as we didn’t know that the cleaning of the beeches in LA would be done by BP hired tmps for Obama’s photo ops

“The level of cleanup and cooperation we’ve gotten from BP in the past is in no way consistent to the effort shown on the island today,” Roberts said by telephone. “As soon as the president left, they were immediately put back on the buses and sent home.”

Reminds me of the good old days when Ceausescu was touring farmers’ markets and truckloads of  merchandise were preceding him, moving the same potatoes and carrots from market to market.

I always wondered then who was supposed to be fooled by this trick.

Later, I found out: not the Ceausescus, as later, when visiting Macy’s in New York she told him: “I bet they loaded all this just before we came”

More details from Obama’s Ceausescu moment

Roberts said that since oil started coming ashore in Grand Isle last week, no more than a dozen workers hired by BP have been seen on the beaches in the area, until Friday when the president arrived.”I’ve heard estimates of 300-500 people there today,” Roberts said. “They were given T-shirts and pants and handed a shovel and taken to the beach.”

“So, just to be clear, there are allegations this was just a dog and pony show for the president. So you’re saying this was nothing more than a sheer coincidence that the president shows up and all the workers come out in force on the same day?” asked WDSU I-Team reporter Travers Mackel.”Yes, absolutely a sheer coincidence,” said BP contractor Donald Nalty.

and yeah, it was BP putting on a show for Obama. Just like Macy’s.

Except here’s the ad for hiring those people, and it’s not from BP, it’s a local government page

Ashland Services, LLC needs 500 workers to assist with the oil spill cleanup in Grand Isle. Recruitment is taking place today, Thursday, May 27, 2010 only at 7528 Main Street (old unemployment office).

Workers will be paid $12.00 per hour and are expected to work 14 hour days 7 days a week. Transportation to Grand Isle, breakfast and lunch will be provided daily. All required safety gear will be provided by Ashland Services, LLC.

So, yeah, I’ll remember the moment the planet started bleeding to death when Obama authorized off-shore drilling.

I’ll akso remember how when he was grandstanding about suspending permits and six months moratoriums in the presser meant to show he cared about oil kill, they were lifting the ban on shallow water drilling. Check the date on that: it’s May 27.


Oh, and Malia, Daddy didn’t plug the hole just yet. But he’s certainly trying hard  to make it so we think he did.

This is a testament to Obama’s identity politics.

As John Smart pointed out

Make no bones about it: Obama is the Left’s McCarthy. The personality that subsumes all the ugliest elements of the base -in this case, identity politics, self righteousness, and condescension – and brings them to the forefront. He did not tell the Left their principles were right. He told them THEY were right. After years of right wing radio screeching and demonization the hypnotism was complete and devastating. In Obama’s trance they obliterated themselves.

So, now B0bots can be happy with wars, the Heritage Foundation HCR and coastline drilling, teacher firings and  Social Security privatization because, after all, they are better than the other guys. They must be, their Messiah told them so.

It was not long ago when some complained that their world is nothing else but reacting to “tea baggers”

I Remember when DU Rocked ! Now we just Watch Tea Baggers and Whine.

So when W’s favorite distraction – “terra” comes along – they find themselves wishing that can pin it on their enemies:

So the NYC would-be-bomber was White and in his 40s

I’m gonna be really pissed if I find out this guy has teabag connections.

You know I spent 8 years protesting the Bush administration and not ONCE did anyone ever use any form of lethal violence to get our point out to the public. And yet Teabaggers are suggesting using guns to solve problems, shooting up innocent people and flying planes into buildings. SO what happens – they get massive media coverage as some sort of force to reckon with in the United States.

If it turns out a teabagger was involved with this bombing, I hope our government cracks down on this organization as the racist hate group that they are.

Raise your hand if you really believe the poster would be POd is the bomber was a “teabagger”.

One of the most fervent, no questions asked Obama apologists wonders

3. Why is it everyone suspects Muslims and never the right wing terrorists?

seems to me domestically the right wing terror attacks are far more likely than Muslim ones.

and someone ironically named “no hypocrisy” offers

16. Criticize me for racial profiling, but I think that description fits a Teabagger.

And another thinks it had to be a “teabagger” as they are ignorant as they are evil (the spelling and punctuation are superior as it’s from a B0bot)

23. But one thing that leads you to think tea bag

is that the plan for the bomb was so stupid and non peforming. Every thing the tea bags do is ignorant look at their signs.

Oh, the humanity! Someone will be disappointed.

In all  fairness, I think back in 2001, freepers also wanted “libs” to be guilty for 9.11. In fact, Poppy Bush said a few things about a Taliban sympathizer who came from California – from those  hot tubbers” from Marin County. And piled on by way of  apology “I am sorry if I hit a nerve”

But. silly as I was then, I thought…sigh … we were better than that. Yeah, guilty.

Oh, well, I’ll just stick with: my principles are better than that. And there’s nobody in power upholding them.


When the actual news is finally posted

Times Square bomb suspect nabbed at airport-Pakistani-born U.S. citizen attempting to fly to Dubai

someone who may have or may have not read my entry asks

10. Be honest now…

How many of you people here secretly wish this was a Tea Party protester?

Be honest.

while another, oblivious of the thread I quoted before retorts

12. My secret wish is that idiocy like this is not posted on DU

Welcome to DU!

and some are probably alerting the mods even as I capture this – I expect .10 to disappear soon

LOL. “you people here”?

Spectator to the American Experiment, with season tickets on the 49th yardline.
129. Nice catch.

19. Be honest now…

how many of you people there were afraid he would be a Tea Party crazy?

.and some find some way of being right, whatever it takes

118. And who says he is not a tea-bagger?

if he is a fundamentalist he for sure is or sympathize with tea baggers

A few are honest

06. I wish they would have found a McCain/Palin bumper sticker

On the damn thing!
108. Or a ‘W’ sticker

one guy is half honest

135. Yes, there would be some

satisfaction in that and given the obvious incompetence involved, it wasn’t an unreasonable idea.

But we really don’t need right wingers blowing shit up. The country is badly divided now.

while another admits defeat at the loss of political football

109. Reight (sic) wing nuts are going to have a field day with this.

as opposed to B0bots who would have soberly mourned a different outcome.

Updating with the excellent essay from the Big Pink

Absolute failure on the part of those who allowed Faisal Shahzad to jump through the immigration hurdles and become a naturalized American citizen about a year ago. Decent people have difficulties and intrusive humiliations thrust upon them to legally immigrate to this country but a murderous demon is awarded much coveted citizenship status. But a self-confessed, trained in Pakistan on bomb making terrorist, is allowed to become an American citizen.
