Damn, Damn, Damn - I have a grave aversion to Slavery

I swore I was going to have nice anxiety free day. After looking at the tone of today’s posting I see that ain’t gonna happen. So. . . in the memory of my dear departed ancestors, please let us remember AMERICA spent the majority of its time as slave society. As Lambert has so delightfully informed us there are C-130s ready to take you to the detention center nearest you and set you to work in a civilian inmate labor program . Read below the fold...

The Death of QWERTY - Protein coding and interface


A shift in perception – a shift in interface. Finally, scientist are learning that large, complex data structures (DNA, computer data) are best perceived by their patterns. We have better evolved systems of pattern recognition than our eyes and the linear processing associated with syllogistic reasoning. Soon the autistics will be doing our data processing,hooked up directly to supercomputers like Blue Brain. Its all in the interface. Scientist are using music to code for proteins.

35,000 in Secret Prisons

I'm at the Center for American Progress, listening to Sid Blumenthal and Glenn Greenwald talk about the Imperial Presidency, and one thing is important enough for me to want to live blog. Sid says that Wilkerson, Powell's old chief of staff, believes that the correct number of victims in secret Bush prisons is 35,000, only %5 of which "may" have to do with terrorism. More than twice what I thought, and hardly any to do with the "war on terror."

Wake up America, it's getting closer. Read below the fold...

Get Out The Vote, Neocon Style #5

A Stay the Course Production

Quotes from the film Dead End:

Aw, what chance have they got against all this? They gotta fight for a place to play, fight for a little extra somethin' to eat, fight for everything. They get used to fightin'. "Enemies of society" it says in the papers... why not? What've they got to be so friendly about?

Sebastian Mallaby teabags WaPo management

Our Seb, yesterday. Let's pass by his Beltway-standard pissing and moaning about the polarization of American politics--making one's way to the cocktail weenie table is so unpleasant lately. You never know who you'll run into! Ain't it awful?--and make our way, as few before us have, to the end of his column, where we find this gem: Read below the fold...

Look! Up in the sky! Barack Obama!

Evil media empires seek to distract right-thinking Dems from focusing on the 2006 mid-terms.

So fucking transparent, isn't it?

These are the guys who spent a year chattering about Al Gore and the ginned up "earth tones" story in election 2000. And now they're swooning over Barack Obama. That should tell you something, right?

Not that Barack isn't just a new, and very pretty face. Read below the fold...

We have always been at war with Oceania!

Dan Bartlett: "It's never been a stay the course strategy." But check the videos and the transcript.

This is blatant, even for the Republicans.

It really does go deeper than lying, doesn't it?

Christmas Isn't That Far Away...

And you know some hard-working bloggers who have such low and dreadful taste that they really, really deserve this. (Not any of us of course. We are saints who eschew money and want any spare change you have lying about to go to non-R candidates who need it. We're talking about those other guys here, the ones who suck.) But now we present...From ebay Read below the fold...

Just Plain Tired

We Americans are so fat. So soft, so lazy, so pathetic. This isn't meant to be a "we suck" post, but here in DC, as I run my ass up and down three flights of stairs six or sixteen times a day moving in, I can't help but think of this woman. I have power, electricity, potable water, flushing toilets, an internet connection (dial up for a while), DVDs to entertain me as I load up the closets and put away my shoes, decor, food and drink in the fridge...the list of luxuries goes on and on.

Republican social engineering in Iraq

Is anyone surprised that the Iraq War turned out the way that it did for the Iraqis? (We knew the Republicans would Fuck up the war; what we couldn't imagine was the grand scale on which they were able to fuck up the peace. Now we know. It's like Katrina. Except a lot worse.)
