While I'm at it...

The news that Paul Ryan likes Rage Against the Machine but not for their lyrics is like saying you like pornography but not for the fucking. Unless he was singing along imagining 'fuck you, I won't do what you tell me' was the new slogan for corporate America, this guy is an idiot. My mood just gets worse and worse today... I know you can like a band's sound but not their lyrics but c'mon, Rage Against the Machine?! It's pretty hard to ignore someone barking revolutionary slogans at you for an hour. Tom Morello's rebuttal is here and interesting to note the Republicans have just released his tax returns showing he pays fuck all tax even though he earns shitloads of money. What. A. Surprise. I'm logging off the Net for a few days before my brain explodes...



  1. While I certainly don't disagree, and I don't want to depress you, it's worse than all that. If you care about the US President, the goings are grim- You've got Barry Obama on one side- corporate shill for Goldman Sachs, warmonger, dopewarrior, and ( for a positive note!) political hack. You have his running mate Joe Biden, a crass plagarist who sold out the only decent and workable plan to peacefully get us out of the middle east so's he could run with Obama. The opposition is Mitt Romney, cultist in the cult of his father, failed venture capitalist, but successful corporate looter, warmonger, Mormon ( so he'll be a dopewarrior, too) sexist, racist, elitist bastard. You've got his running mate Paul Ryan who's Sarah Palin in an Eddie Munster wig. I think it's safe to say we're fucked in terms of a president. Fortunately those aren't the only terms. I'm much more concerned with local politics. I think that's the only salvation left in the US. Also, the internet gives me hope- I've seen and talked to so many good people on the "interwebs" that I've come to almost worship the technology. So, do what you need to get your head right, shake it off, and I'll be glad to "see" you when you get back.
