Proprietary truths and proprieties.

Manifest destinies must ensure the former become the latter.

Transparency? The liar-in-chief very first executive order 1/21/09 sealed his entire past life. No vetting was ever done.

A wise man has said, "Better to be 2 years early than 10 minutes too late".

The Top 4 have no assets listed in my name. Protect yourself.

The phrase "criminal enterprise" keeps going through my mind.

The pressure of meeting timelines is no doubt at times difficult with FOIA requests, but the untenable [cough/hack/choke]claim that it took 6 days for the e-mail to arrive demonstrates how bAnal the daily practice of lying is. No doubt they gave the same serious consideration before checking the box on the denial of request form.  Socialism American Style... and we used to feel so superior to the USSR.

Laws are for little people.

So very frustrating.

Basically, Americans are getting to the point that we don't trust anyone/thing anymore. Even once revered institutions like schools and hospitals and the military are not admired or trusted. Do we even trust farmers or ranchers now?  Doctors, nurses and teachers?  Auto workers, scientists, cyberbuilders.   Add police, lumberjacks, and postal service.  Especially insurance employees, banks, real estate affiliates, lawyers, and elected officials.

Who do you trust?  Your parent, spouse, child, neighbor, soldier.  That's where we start.

Oh, I'm sorry, I wasn't listening.  What paper work?  Must have been misplaced. Oh, he no longer works here.  Let me transfer you.  That's being handled in a different department.  Let me transfer you.  That department was absorbed into the other department when the departments were discontinued and transferred to the other department.  There is no such agency.  Let me transfer you.  I'm sorry, you have a wrong number.  Oh, we don't recognize that authority here.  Let me transfer you to my supervisor.  The operator can help you.  He was general counsel when that subject was placed under seal and his records are not accessible.  Maybe Attorney General Ashcroft can help you.  No, we don't have his birth certificate.  You'll either need to step into the body scanner or be felt up by that old smelly perv in the uniform, take your pick.  Don't call here again.  I know where you live, asshole.  That JimBillyBob Oscar?  Shoot I went to school with him.  Whaddya want him for?  Let me transfer you.  Sorry, but the court order does not require us to comply.  Not on your national security, asshole.  Fuck you.  Well, I'll have to pass this along to my supervisor, but she's been transferred to the Madigascar embassy for a while.  Who?  Never heard of it.  The law doesn't apply here.  You'll have to fill in these seventy three forms in triplicate, no blue ink or number 2 pencil, no hanging chads.  They're not here.  Fuck you, sir.  Please leave a message at the tone.  The mailbox is full.

It would be nice to think that we are not all pissing in the wind; unfortunately we are until a catastrophic event occurs.  But at least this is a good site to vent.
