And speaking of narcissistic personality disorder

And lack of empathy, and sociopaths, carnacki at Skippy's place works Doctor Freud's ol' purloined letter routine--mental fucktitude so obvious it's hidden in plain sight:

Read aWol's quote again: "You know, nobody likes to see innocent people die. Nobody wants to turn on their TV on a daily basis and see havoc wrought by terrorists."

What he does not say is "Nobody wants innocent people to die."

What is it, demonic forces seize control of their bodies, call the front desk, and force them to put porn on their credit cards? What is it with these guys? Read below the fold...

Market fundamentalism on health care

Bush cuts loose with another one:

The initiative underscores Bush's belief that the nation's health-care system would be more efficient if consumers could shop for the best care at the best price, administration officials say. "The fact is, if you have excellent information about quality, about service and about price, people make good decisions," Bush said during a roundtable here to discuss the initiative.

It's only words: Cut out the "Cut and run".

Words can be pesky little things. They can express love, hate, and anything in-between. A single word can cause, in certain circumstances, death, or worse. And words can tell a story, not just in the presence of a narrative, but by their very use. Read below the fold...

Pray For the Restoration and Revival of Our Otherwise Late Great State

Below is the text of an e-mail I received regarding legislation before the California Assembly, followed by my response. I have had quite enough of this absolute nonsense, and though I suspect the sender will remove me from the mailing list, I hit reply all and let anybody who cared know my thoughts on this subject. Fundamentalism is, in my opinion, anathema to the teachings of Jesus, and is anathema to the workings of the human heart. It must be faced down wherever it rears its ugly head, and bitch-slapped back to the bitter, scabrous womb of its unholy birth. Read below the fold...

Net Neutrality News of the Day


I had a conversation recently with a woman who works for an ad firm specializing in internet ads. She says, wait for it, that no one in her company knows or is talking about the threat to net neutrality. Heard the same from a family member that works for a company that would be wiped out if Steven's Tubes bill passes. So this is uplifting to read about:

How a "devoted" Democrat really behaves

Paul Hackett via Kossack dday:

[Chris] Matthews tried to trip [Hackett] up at the end [of the Hardball segment] by referencing Sherrod Brown, saying "shouldn't that be you out there," but Hackett was having none of it. "Go give some money to Sherrod Brown, he's a great guy and I support him in becoming the next Senator from Ohio."

That's what a "devoted" Democrat does; gets behind the Democratic Party nominee. Read below the fold...

Israeli government rapes, bribes, steals while troops lack equipment, training, water

Jeebus, no wonder the Lebanon thing was such a Clusterfuck for the Olmert government. It looks like these guys had their minds on other things:

Israeli President's home raided as police examine rape claim
[1] Israeli police have raided the official residence of President Moshe Katsav and taken away computers and documents in connection with sexual harassment allegations.

Brits to stay in Iraq "indefinitely." What about us?


A force of around 4,000 British troops will stay behind in Iraq for an indefinite period, even after all provinces controlled by the UK are handed over to the Baghdad government in nine months' time, senior defence sources said yesterday.

The soldiers will be positioned at a base in Basra ready to act to "protect the investment" made by US and British forces in the country, it was disclosed.

I should get serious and post about Iran

But why should I help the Republicans roll out another product before a midterm?

All this CW about the Dems should have this policy or that policy just makes me yawn.

The situation is so screwed up, and the disinformation so pervasive, that there's simply no way we can tell what's going on--and if we try, we're just going to get played anyhow. More Lucy with the football. Read below the fold...
