This administration, the last administration, surely the next administration that can be "elected" by the American populace will LIE to your face. 

They will shit on your food and tell you they have added nutritional value. 

They will piss in your bed and tell you they have warmed it for you. 

Good is bad and bad is good. 

They will talk and say nothing of any worth.

For once I agree with chumbawamba.

Why are we sitting around letting niggers take over the world? The Whites need to get together again and reassert control. We are dooming ourselves by tying our future to these low-IQ pre-humans, but judging from the junks on chumbawamba's comment most of the White population has already become completely brainwashed. Even Abraham Lincoln wanted to move the Blacks out of the country ( ), as of course did President Monroe with the creation of Liberia.

Based on what you say,  what might we expect from you if you were ever to obtain power? You illustrate why "power" must always exist on the leach of a free market. Otherwise your kind will scorch the earth before we can put you "out of business".

A black, or a white, or a Christian, or a Muslim, or a Jew, or any other race or creed of person is to be treated as a "man" if they behave as a man.  And in turn, only a man/woman who respects other's lives, liberty, and property is worthy of the title "man", for it is all "men" who have equality of rights, but those who act as beasts are the adversaries of men. Learn what is yours and learn what is not yours.

I had to take some time off to deal with all the ungodly niggers that were polluting my life, including credit card companies, IRS, cops, etc.  And I got booted because I called Marla a cunt.

Tyler let me back on because page views bring ad impressions which equals revenues.  People like to read my comments and I enjoy writing them, and I tend to be rather outspoken so it generates a lot of page views.  I like the trade off because it gives me a forum in which I feel comfortable spewing off over all the the things that piss me off on a daily basis.  Zero Hedge is my release.  Sometimes you are the benefactor of my wisdom, and other times you are the unfortunate recipient of my vitriol.  And you love it.  At least a goodly number of you do.

Yeah, in some cases it has become a schtick.  Because I have fun with it.  But not with nigger.  No, nigger is a more serious thing.  I am very careful whom I call a nigger.  It's a magical word.  It's a special word.  It's a special word for special people, those people being niggers.

I reject your current understand of the word just as I have already rebuked my former understanding of it.  I am now exorcising it in public.  I am beating the soul out of it and will imbue it with a new one.  I am re-purposing an obsolete word and fashioning a new and even more critical meaning for it.  It is now the word we shall use to describe those who fill our lives with their utterly selfish and disgustingly mendacious venality.  The people at all levels who do nothing but put obstacles in our way on the natural path of truth and justice.  And these are not just cliche words I use.  This is what we all strive for, is it not?  Truth and Justice?  We all want truth and justice, for ourselves and others.  If you don't, well then you're a nigger.  That about sums it up.

The cop who forced my neighbor in handcuffs to a psyche ward for overnight observation because she purportedly made a comment about wanting to "end it all" in a dispute with her mother that subsequently stuck her with a $20,000 bill, that's a nigger.

The person that is all about freedom and equality and human rights and donates to humanitarian causes but then begrudges the Palestinians the right to live in their own fucking country on their own fucking land in their own fucking homes, that my friends is a nigger.

The banker who uses his corrupt connections to force the American people to fund his own bailout then nickel and dimes them to death with overdraft fees and other bullshit usury, now that's a nigger.

The leader that can't tell his people the truth even as their lives hang in the balance because he would lose face, that's a nigger.

And the president that unilaterally and un-Constitutionally declares war on another nation and then commits people, equipment and money towards bombing that country and murdering civilians there in my name is a fucking nigger. PERIOD FULL STOP END OF STORY.  Do you got that?  Do you fucking understand?  Am I making myself perfectly fucking clear now?

Nigger is as nigger does, god damn it!  Why are you fucking getting angry with me?

It is one thing to want others to become emotionally involved so they might think, and it is  another thing to goad others into not thinking and behaving like beasts.  Now depending on how I choose to view your words I can understand method as opposed to madness. However, are you willing to alienate those who don't relate like you for reasons you can stay comfortable with?

I can hold a mirror up to you (and of course to myself), but it is you who must look into that mirror.  Life is short, and there are all kinds of folks.  Maybe where you come from you are expressing friendly, warm hearted discourse and you appreciate a good harmless "brawl" powered by emotions, and then again maybe not. Time is valuable so why do you want to do the dance?

Chumba, my friend, I can see where you're coming from. I learned long ago that "niggers come in all colors". The problem I see here is that you're trying to defuse a bomb and use it for a flower pot. As a white Southerner, I am proud of my heritage, yet I will not fly the battle flag, as it is too emotionally charged to allow people to move past their initial reaction to its appearance - hence, I fly the first national flag, which people generally don't recognize and which leads to a history lesson. If your opening statement is offensive, folks will tune out the rest of your message, no matter the content. I would suggest a different perjorative, perhaps taken from another language.

Nope, that would be a sell-out to a sell-out society.  You will be subjected to that word and it will be countless in number and you will be inured from it or you will go insane trying to avoid it.

Everyone always talks about how we are in a post-racial society and yet the evidence always destroys that silly little argument.  Case in point: this thread.

The problem here, really, is that I dare play with fire and somehow don't get burned by it.  And it pisses you off.  That is a control issue that you must address within yourself.

Crows are smarter than most birds and can also live for decades. Eagles on the other hand suffer from optical processing requirements that crowd out their grey matter. I've watched on several occasions a bald eagle try to steal a fish midair from the osprey that caught it. Touchingly apropos for our mascot. The best part is that the osprey usually just drops the dead fish back into the water and waits for the eagle to leave before catching another one.

Chumba has made some good points and I prefer to read his longer posts that elaborate on an idea rather than flame-for-flame.

chumbawamba's picture

I believe our friend zeroman intended to write "...than to run with the turkeys".  Which is appropriate to your allusion, because Benjamin Franklin would've preferred the turkey to be our (American) national fowl because of numerous admirable qualities:

For my own part I wish the Bald Eagle had not been chosen the Representative of our Country. He is a Bird of bad moral Character. He does not get his Living honestly. You may have seen him perched on some dead Tree near the River, where, too lazy to fish for himself, he watches the Labour of the Fishing Hawk; and when that diligent Bird has at length taken a Fish, and is bearing it to his Nest for the Support of his Mate and young Ones, the Bald Eagle pursues him and takes it from him.

With all this Injustice, he is never in good Case but like those among Men who live by Sharping & Robbing he is generally poor and often very lousy. Besides he is a rank Coward: The little King Bird not bigger than a Sparrow attacks him boldly and drives him out of the District. He is therefore by no means a proper Emblem for the brave and honest Cincinnati of America who have driven all the King birds from our Country.

I am on this account not displeased that the Figure is not known as a Bald Eagle, but looks more like a Turkey. For the Truth the Turkey is in Comparison a much more respectable Bird, and withal a true original Native of America . . . He is besides, though a little vain & silly, a Bird of Courage, and would not hesitate to attack a Grenadier of the British Guards who should presume to invade his Farm Yard with a red Coat on.

The venerable Mr. Franklin was wrong on one account: it turns out the Eagle is in fact the more appropriate foul to represent America.

I love crows.  Perhaps my favorite bird.  They're fun to watch and hang out with.

@ Chum:


Crows are also predators of opportunity, and will not hesitate to attack and kill those who are very weak and defenseless. They are beasts and not men.   Now if we wish to talk about people, should the weak and defenseless be allowed to "mature" or should they be the prey of the cunning and merciless? Who's side do you choose in such an issue - life or death? Do you prefer the joys of a fulfilled life that all may partake of, or the pleasures of the predatory (which will, in time be reflected back at themselves in this universe - as everything eventually returns to its source, believe it or not)? And if you do not wish to view yourself as predator why the "crow"?

if you're using the word the way I think--I can dig it. I went to high school in the early 50's in L.A. When that term was used even then, even in L.A. it was a no-no. When a black dude called another black dude who was a total punk he was referred to as a Nigger. And when you were tight with the black guys they understood what you were saying--there was no "honky" word then and it still doesn't carry the contempt now that "nigger" does.

So yea, in that sense, Bammie is a "Nigger", a punk ass black man.     Milestones

You, sir, are a gentleman and a scholar.

I, too, went to school in L.A., but in the 1970s and 1980s.  We had bussing, and so I got to be around the blacks from south central and the hispanics from east L.A.  If I'd realized what was really going on back then--if I'd had the capacity to know--I would have really appreciated the opportunity more.  It was a reviled policy by many, especially racists who didn't want their pure white children to be tarnished by them dirty blackies and spics, but in hindsight, for all its improper social engineering aspects, I believe it was a positive influence on my life.

But yeah, you nailed it, of course.  Too bad more people don't get it.

Since it was such a valuable lesson to you, do you think everyone else should have their nose rubbed in your version of the "solution"? If so, then I will offer you this:

I also had similar "opportunities" all though not in LA and it was back when the blacks were tearing up up places because MLK, who stood for peace, got blown away and I was the big white, quite kid who would not join gangs.  You can choose "eye for an eye" or you can attempt to understand and grow and rejoice in the growth of others.  Where are you, and where do you want to be a long time from now?

Hugh G Rection, I'd like to expand on "bullshit" if you'll permit, and also if you won't.

Basically the only discernible principle I see as to whether Obama will verbally or otherwise support the overthrow of a foreign government is ONLY when:

A)  Said government is not (or no longer is) rabidly anti western.

B)  See A.

This fits Dinesh D'Sousa's argument, that Obama's agenda is precisely as Obama himself stated in his TWO auto biographies, published while he was "present" in jobs the unions and political bosses of Illinois voted him into.   What agenda?     Obama's principal peave is a "rage" against colonialism as seen by his father and his father's ilk.   Note the little tip in the title "Dreams from My Father", referring to the philandering marxist loser extraordinaire and absent donor of the sperm that made this man.    Mom raised little Barack to worship the man though he was never present, and then his lefty grandparents took over at some point.

Mubarak got it in the ass from the Bamster because he and his regimes were paid allies of the United States.    Ali in Tunisia, ditto.    Achmadinnerjacket in Iran is all good because he not only hates America and hates Israel but wages war against us pretty goddamned openly.   No words of encouragement for the sophisticated persian (i.e. not arab) people protesting massively in Iran.    Assad in Syria gets a pass because that regime is also rabidly and actively anti-american, and a slave state to Iran.     The cedar revolution got crushed on Obama's watch for the same reasons:  Hezbollah, the Party of God, is as anti-american and anti-western as one can conceive, short of the fictional totalitarian Borg or maybe insanely murderous Pol Pot.

But Quadaffy of Libya is a bad guy no?   Well, if you pay attention to the back pages of the US monodailies, it turns out Khquadafi' gave up his nuclear arms development program, out of the frickin' blue, shortly after the coalition of the willing went in to Iraq for the 23 reasons given by the W administration.   And came clean about Lockerbie.   And started playing nice with all sorts of western oil and other companies looking to make dough.   I.E. he stopped being anti-western and anti-american so much.   In Obama's worldview, Gaddafi crossed a line.

All the horseshit from Obama about Gaddafi killing his countrymen is as nothing compared to the atrocities of Saddam and his charming sons, the mullahs of Iran, or the chinless opthomologist running Syria.    Obama is all about getting power to use it to take down ("fundamentally transform" is Obama's formulation) the object of his hate, the western world itself, including the USA.    His psychotic deficit spending, unworkable health care plan, lawless behavior, nutjob appointees, massive military adventuring in shitholes like Afghanistan, strategic arms giveaways, bypasses of Congress to submit the US to the UN, are all part and parcel, and so is this.

The NWO/Illuminati are pulling his strings (I think they have an emergent hive mind without an organizer, but that's another story).  They often choose narcissistic puppets with easy psychological buttons and personal bugbears, because this gives them plausible deniability later.  See, for example, Bush, Bernake and Obama.  Anyway, America has fucked up the puppetmasters' plans for world domination multiple times and now they mean to destroy us once and for all.  That's why we are being fucked in so many different ways by so many different institutions.  It takes thousands of puppets to pull this off but the president has more influence than most, which is why the NWO always makes sure they control both candidates in an election. 

So, they are stealing anything they can, rotting our minds with drivel, tricking us into endless wars, making us sick, crippling our manufacturing and enterpreneurial spirit, rewarding parasitism and sociopathy, turning our houses into ruins and our food into engine-destroying ethanol, etc, etc.  Perhaps more importantly, they are making the entire world hate us and mistrust us for a very long time.  Every dictator now sees that those who play along with us (Saddam, Khadaffi, Mubarak, next Saleh) can be thrown under the bus while those who undermine our interests (Iran, N. Korea, Bin Laden) go unpunished.

Next step:  Invade Saudi Arabia based on a secretly encouraged Islamist revolution and false flag attack, thus ensuring that terrorism continues forever and all despots know what happens to America's "friends".  It's Illuminati Revenge Herpes- the gift that keeps on giving!  If you think we are seen as hypocrites, looters and backstabbers now, just wait.  Soon the Romans a good reputation in comparison.

I agree with your observations but would add that he "paid" for the crimes Obama now wages war on him when Reagan bombeded his tent killing his child,  in  response to the Germany bombing and paid retribution behind the airliner bomb.  As stated, he then entered into an truce with Bush giving up WMD and began providing info.  Which kinda made him a quasi ally.  Essentially, the US has invaded a non hostile country much the same way Hitler did  Poland.  Remember when it first started Gadaffi said Al Queda was behind it and the media spun it like he was a nut.  Now it comes out he was right.

OK, so someone else in the world, the horseman in this case, agrees with me that Gaddafi, in the Obama view, has become if not pro-western then at least compliant, bought and paid for by the west....which makes Gaddafi an enemy of Obama's core anti-western ideals.   Bombing isn't invading though.    My guess is Obama will be OK with an islamonutter takeover of Libya, which would go faster without our boots on the ground.    That's the outcome we are going to get in Egypt in a disturbingly short span of time.

Observations by Truth Provider:

Here is the deal about Libya.

First Syria.

1)      Has been subverting and meddling in Iraq since the beginning of the war there.
2)      Supports and supplies Hezballah (a terrorist organization) in Lebanon despite UN Res. 1701
3)      Supports and supplies Hamas (a terrorist organization) in Gaza.
4)      Cooperates with Iran.
5)      Long history of violence against its own citizens. In 1982 Hafez Asad the father murdered between 17,000 and 40,000 thousands in the Syrian city of Hama to quell a revolt.
6)      6) in the last few days Bashar Asad killed some 150 demonstrators in several Syrian cities.
7)      Syria is of no economic interest to the west.
8)      Political institutions exist for regime change.


1)      Stopped its nuclear program.
2)      Paid compensation to the families of the Lockerby Pan Am 103 victims.
3)      No military threat to America and the west.
4)      Major petroleum supplier to the west.
5)      Rebels are disorganized. Tribal warfare. No political institutions to take over.
6)      Strong presence of Al-Qaeda in the country.

Yes, my friends, Kadaffi is a madman, a terrible dictator, a goofball, call him any name you wish, but there are many cruel and crazy dictators around the globe who pose a much more serious threat to the west's interests.

If President Obama's reason (pretext?) for attacking Kadaffi and Libya was to protect the rebels and save lives, why are we not attacking Syria? Iran? Yemen? Congo? North Korea? Etc. etc.

So, when you listen tonight to the President's speech, do not be swept away by his usual spins. We have already listened to several contradictory statements from his administration and himself.

Also, do not listen to NPR's comments with its usual bias in support of whatever the President does.
