Open Letter to The Bastards @ Bugger™

Dear Buggering™ Bastards: When will spell checking be available again? Not that we really need it, but it's been a while & it never hurts to check one's work. Sincerely, Malignant "Chas." Bouffant Editor-in-Chief Just Another Blog (From L. A.)™

Not Much Happening

Nothing new or sucky to report, other than being awakened @ 0500 instead of 0600 @ the Armory today. We hope the 144th Field Artillery is called up & shipped to the other side of the world to die horrible deaths. Soon. Click to Sadly, No! from the bogroll [sic] & peruse Mister Leonard Pierce's reports from the Conservative Political Action Conference, under the rubric of "The Beast Is Red," if you need entertainment. (And who doesn't?)

The American Scene

More fun w/ mainiacs w/ guns ( Just Another Blog™ was one once, but the L. A. County Sheriff's Dep't. took our peashooter away) : Five Dead in Los Angeles:
The standoff began shortly after a man in Winnetka called 911 saying he had gunned down three relatives. It ended early Thursday -- more than eight hours later -- with a single round from a police sniper who killed the suspect as he emerged from his burning house firing a barrage of bullets. In between, two highly decorated Los Angeles Police Department officers were shot, one fatally.
Out in a blaze of glory after killing the rest of your family. Just how we wanted to do it. If you can't get a celebrity or politician, your family's the next best thing. And lighting your house on fire is a nice finishing touch. Speaking of politicians, we all know how horrid the gov't. is, w/ its parking tickets & other affronts to freedom. One man stood up for himself last night. Best part of this one? The shooter's brother thinks it's just fine:
Thornton's brother, Gerald, told local television station KMOV that he saw justification for the bloodshed. "My brother went to war tonight with the people and government that were putting torment and strife into his life, and he ended it," Gerald Thornton said. "I'm OK with it."
Hokey fuckin' smokes, what sort of family background/genetic deficiencies did these two have? Are there any more at home like them? Bear in mind that when it's Pres. Clinton or Pres. Obama, people like this will be coming out of the woodwork taking potshots at any gov't. figure in a last-ditch effort to stop the socialist menace. Meter maids beware! On the feminist front, we get this, hot off the presses this a. m.:
BATON ROUGE, La. -- A young woman killed two female students in a college classroom at a vocational college today, then killed herself, police said. The students apparently were shot in their seats in the second-floor classroom at Louisiana Technical College, Sgt. Don Kelly said.
Sisterhood is powerful. Three publicized acts of multiple-victim gun violence in This Great Nation of Ours™ in about 36 hrs. Keep the chain going America, it's bad luck if you break it.

Conservative Movement (No Poop Jokes, Damnit!!)

In our recent forays into the sad world of Right Wing Rant Radio, we've noticed many references to the "conservative movement," as in: "What's McCain done for the conservative movement?" or "McCain hasn't helped conservativism any." On the other hand (warts) "left" radio (other than Pacifica, which is just too serious for us) is not condemning anyone for being untrue to the "movement" or the like, though of course the two still-standing Senators are at least semi-liberal, if far from "progressive" or actually "left," in the sense of all other semi-democratic industrialized nations. But it would be awfully tough for RWRR hosts to come right out & ask, "What's McCain done lately to help corporations, increase the wealth of the wealthy, impose a fascist theocracy, & cater to the whims of paranoid pantswetters who sense a Muslim sleeper under every bed?" Other than his promise to stay in Iraq for 100 yrs. if that's what it takes, of course. So the reference is merely to "the movement," not its goals. Well kids, as long as you have a clique to belong to...

Loser Admits He's a Loser

It appears Mittens has quit (or "suspended" his campaign) & not a moment too soon. Any more of this "Democrats are going to surrender to terrorists" crap & it might have been time to apply a bit o' terror to Mormon boy. Hey, does this mean that the Mormon "Heavenly Father" doesn't exist? Or is powerless to affect events here on this planet (as opposed to the one he rules in outer space somewhere)? Wouldn't you think "Heavenly Pops" would want one of his boys running things here in America, where Jeezis made a special stop several hundred yrs. after his crucifixion & alleged revival? And where Jeezis will be returning to re-establish the Garden of Eden in Missouri or somewhere? Inquiring minds want to know, damnit!! Here's some bullshit (from the AP via MSNBC) from ol' Double Gitmo about "surrender:"
In a speech to the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington Thursday, Romney talked of Democratic candidates Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama retreating in Iraq and declaring defeat. He then told the crowd he disagrees with McCain on a number of issues, but that he'd given the matter a lot of thought and if he fought on all the way to the Republican convention, " I forestall the launch of a national campaign and frankly I'd be making it easier for Senator Clinton or Obama to win. Frankly, in this time of war, I simply cannot let my campaign be a part of aiding a surrender to terror." Romney added, "If this were only about me, I can go on. But its never been only about me. I entered this race... because I love America, and because I love America, in this time of war, I feel I now have to stand aside, for our party and for our country." The former Massachusetts Republican governor has been seriously trailing McCain in the delegate count since Super Tuesday. [Emphasis added.] Former Gov. Mike Huckabee, R-Ark., remains in the race but trails Romney in the delegate counts.
We're closer & closer to a McCain/Huckleberry ticket. Two spiteful assholes w/ thin skins (anger management issues, in other words). Oh, swell. We just can't have too many hateful dipshits running This Great Nation of Ours™, can we? P. S.: Romney, McCain, & their pants-pissing ilk have already "surrendered to terror," merely by whining about it all the time.

YouTubery

Internet friend "Sophia" from across the pond sends this YouTube thingy: http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=5fda4_wo6JI Alas, either we're just not familiar enough w/ Windows 2000 (And why should we be in 2008?) or the library has their devil-boxes set up oddly, but we can't get the YouTube image to appear. Indeed, please excuse the general (total) lack of pictures & other imagery of late. Though even if we could get images up, we haven't the time to search for l'image juste under the LAPL's time constraints.

Super Duper Fat Tuesday Mardi Gras Wrap-Up

Like, whut-everrr.

Vote Early, Vote Often!

Rudely awakened @ 0400, instead of the usual 0545, as the 144th Field Artillery's Armory had to be used as a polling place today. And, last night's dinner was a suckfest: turkey log, boiled carrots, undercooked new potatoes. Plus my piece of day-old bread, no doubt from a snooty Westside restaurant, was wheat (Blech!) w/ a mess of icky seed things in it! P. U. & hmpf! So fuck "democracy," & fuck all you morons who think you live in a democracy. Technically, it's a "democratic republic," more accurately it's a kleptocracy. Or simply a shithole, & the capital of hypocrisy. Of course, if you're stupid enough to believe what you were told in high school civics classes (It's not called "civics" any more, is it? That went out w/ "junior high school," if not before.) it may not be hypocrisy. What exactly is it called when the ruled are too ignorant/stupid to realize they're being ruled w/ lies? Everyday human existence? The natural state of afffairs? Reality? Whatever you call it, it sucks.

Will Not Be Missed

How do these assholes manage to live this long? Isn't the horror of their souls supposed to eat them like the cancers they are on the body politic? Above contemplations in response to the death of Nixon AgSec Earl Butz. (Heh-heh, he said "Butz.") From the regional fishwrapper (Now, by the way, owned by some real estate mogul rather than the Tribune Corp.):
He was forced to resign his Cabinet post in October 1976 after telling an obscene joke that was derogatory to blacks. The slur was overheard by John Dean, Nixon's former counsel who was jailed in the Watergate scandal, and Dean's report on it was published in Rolling Stone magazine.
And, especially for those of you too young to remember, here's the obscene joke that Sec. Butz told & the L. A. Times was too chicken to repeat. (We can't remember if "nigger" was used but the set up was that the only things African-American men were interested in were):
"Loose shoes, tight pussy & a warm place to shit."
Just loverly, innit? What exactly made Sec. Butz think that most Euro-American males weren't interested in the very same things? (Apparently wymyn weren't even on the Secretary's radar.) We know, as a currently homeless person, that a warm (& private) place to shit is paramount to our well-being. And nobody likes tight shoes. As a mentally ill person, our medication has removed our libido (just as well, really) so we can't comment on the other interest.

Awful Person of the Week

Due to various circumstances beyond our control (basketball & hockey games, wknd. infomercials, "best of" repeats of crap we've already heard) we've been listening to more right wing squawk radio than any sane person should. Jeezis H. Christ, those people are just plain nutz!! And filled w/ hate, rage, pain, & fear? Oh, you bet. Hokey Smokes!! So often they accuse the left (or what passes for it in our nation) of being hate-filled, yet you truly would not believe what issues from their mouths, much of it now directed at their own, as the recent rise of Sen. John McCain as the latest phoenix from the Party ashes seems to have set many of them off. This wk.'s "awful person" earned her designation when discussing Preacher Boy Hucklebuck, to whom she referred as a "malignant narcissist." A bit o' pop psychology from our weekly winner, Ms. Tammy Bruce, the self-hating (a bit o' pop psych from us, there) self-admitted lesbian who is a conservative mouthpiece. Per Ms. B., it's "all about Huckabee" because he won't get out of the race & throw his support to Mittens Romney, whose constant invocation of Ratbag Ronnie Reagan (a grown man who called his second wife "mommie," allegedly before the Alzheimer's Disease set in -- get out your psych texts for that one, kids) & whining that "Washington is broken" while conveniently forgetting to mention that his party broke it (Isn't that just what the Republicans want to do, break the gov't. so that it only works for their corporate welfare cronies?) seems to have made Mittens the new darling/last hope of the Party loudmouths. Not that we have anything positive to say about The Huckster, who does seem to have a pretty high opinion of himself, & is a deliberate obscurantist & ignoramus of the first water, but what politician is not a narcissist? Ever looked at Romney's hair, Tammy? And get this from Tammy's page:
Mitt Romney is a forward thinking individual who, through business, understands the importance of people, our impact and influence. His success is based not in contempt for people, but in working with them. Many, including myself, have worried that one of Romney's weaknesses is that he doesn't have a "romantic" backstory like McCain, but I was wrong. Romney does have perhaps the most romantic backstory--his is the only history made of helping other people gain success. Clinton and McCain have spent their lives celebrating themselves and using others to gain personal power.
Yep, leveraged buy-outs followed by lay-offs & re-selling companies for a huge fucking profit, the very definition of "understands the importance of people, our impact and influence." (Tammy writes well, too, another criterion for "awful person.") Certainly not one working stiff has been used to gain any wealth or power for ol' Mittens. By the way, we've heard Mittens described as a "self-made man." Sure, if pater was the head of American Motors, the governor of Michigan & a serious contender for the Republican presidential nomination until he made the mistake of telling the truth about Vietnam, anything you do is completely on your own. Dug ditches 50 hrs. a wk. to get himself through correspondence school, if we're not mistaken. Totally self-made. We feel sick, & our time runneth out. (So does yours.) Ciao 'til next time!!
