What they say & (possibly) believe
Recently I read about the chaos and poverty in Venezuela, and how their government seized
a popular electronics retail chain by force, the country’s equivalent of Best Buy. It was a blatant attempt to appease the poorest, least educated members of society with government-subsidized flatscreen TVs before a crucial election.
If only their people would see this for what it is! A nation with as much oil wealth as Venezuela could be paved with gold overnight if their petty, vindictive government would get out of the way and allow some semblance of a free market to take root.
Two paragraphs as silly/pathetically ignorant as have been typed in some time. (Minutes, certainly.)
How's that semblance of a free market working for these United Snakes, you dumb cluck? Why isn't that paving w/ gold thing happening
in oil-rich Texas, for example
? Oh look, not paved w/ gold, NOT EVEN FUCKING PAVED!
Amid financing challenges, the department announced seven weeks ago that it planned
to convert 83 miles of farm-to-market road in the heart of the oil-drilling boom to gravel, most of that in the Eagle Ford Shale. Following a public outcry, the agency issued a 60-day moratorium
on converting any roads. That has turned the end of October into a looming deadline for county officials hoping to find a way off the so-called gravel list. And as they consider options that include taking over the maintenance of the roads or soliciting donations from the energy sector, the officials say they are being punished for their region’s boom
This week’s meeting was the most visible part of a recent effort by transportation officials to explain their reasoning behind the plan in a clearer way. While the South Texas drilling boom has added billions of dollars to the state’s coffers, it has also badly damaged local infrastructure. Around the region, drivers must now navigate around and across yawning potholes, cracked asphalt and splintering shoulders. The department has struggled to maintain its farm-to-market roads, which were not designed to handle the weight of the thousands of heavy trucks that now regularly traverse rural communities like Cotulla to get to new wells.
Notice our emphases? Local officials have to consider begging for road repair funds from the same corporations that have damaged the roads.
The free market is literally devolving the transportation infrastructure, yet the blinded still sacrifice themselves & their farm-to-market roads to it.
You'd think a free market would serve them, but it's almost as if this free market is a malevolent entity interested only in profit, especially profit that returns to those already wallowing in
theft of surplus value.
What happened to those loudly shouted shibboleths responsibility & accountability? You break it, you own it, Swarovski figurines or public farm-to-market roads. That should be simple enough even for free market believers. If a corporation is indeed a person w/ all attendant rights, it should have to be personally responsible, right? Right? Hello, hello? This thing on?
But we haven't even started. (Nah, don't worry, more than half-over.) Those two throw-away paragraphs of 180° wrongness are not the real joke, pathetic as they were. What's really funny is they are part of a two-page (& possibly very serious
) "Impeach Obama" screed. W/ a 7 mins. & 5 secs. video. Love that eye of Sauron imagery. Cleee-ver.
This youthful ninny has objectively established his disconnection from reality, the material world, current events, & how things work, & clearly demonstrated he hasn't much grasp of cause & effect. So we're expected to read/watch/listen & believe that whatever horse-pucky he's typed & spewed about high crimes & misdemeanors will
free us of this troublesome colored fellow
reverse election results like magic? Can't get funnier than that.
All of Mr. Seaman's inane impeachment droning (haven't watched any, merely skimmed the DC idiocy) leads to one deflating question: WHERE IN THE NAME OF HELL WERE YOU FROM 2001 THROUGH 2009, MR. CONSTITUTION/FREE MARKET?
Another question would be, so what? Why is the current President suddenly responsible for everything non-Constitutional (And who died & made Mr. Seaman the Supreme fucking Court?) since Honest Abe suspended habeas corpus
And a third might be, if Obummer hasn't questioned or restrained the Nat'l. Security State (& he has indeed played right along, they all
do) why would it let him be impeached? Again we see the ancient enigma of the enemy who is a vicious would-be slavemaster, evil incarnate, yet just as Jesus is gawd & man at the same time, this Satanic overlord is also pathetic, weak & incompetent while managing to destroy all that is good & pure. (It is very difficult to keep up w/ this stuff.) Keeping it clear, because our typing sucks today: The Satanic overlord just mentioned is the N.S. State itself, which, J. Edgar Hoover-style, must certainly have all the poop it needs as to which members of Congress like to wear adult nappies, for example; information which could certainly influence votes on impeachment or anything the hell else, & no doubt has.
Sheesh, junior, by the time a 20-yr. old who hasn't yet bothered shaving wakes up to the whole shadow gov't. thing it's about 25 yrs. too late. (We are referring to ourself & our learning curve. Dunno what David Seaman's problem is.)
Now we're into oh for fucks' sakes territory
. Which would appear to be Los Angeles. Figures. Think Seaman knows Conor Friedersdorf? Are you streaming Rise every morning? When will everyone (else)'s fifteen mins. of self-appointed fame stop?
No longer true:
