QE for dogs--great idea!!! Approximately 60 million dogs, so Daddy Bernanke could send each dog $8,333.33 for his 1/2 trillion dollar QE3 program. Damn better than buying non-performing MBS from the banks. Instead of stealing from the public on behalf of his employers, he would help man's best friend.

Hope and Change.  Dope is Lame!

Love the Telepromter in Chief with his Jive Turkey Rooster Strut up to the Podium to deliver the pre-prepared message.  Did me screen fall down? Oh my!. Dunno whats tuh do?

No Justice, under the Dept of J.  No prosecutions for the corruption of W. Street.

MJK would be ashamed of BHZero.  Barack after the Lebanon barracks? Or barack after baroke after your Admin?  Hussein after Sodom Mr. Hussein, finger puppet middle east?

Or Obama after Osama, enemy nummer won?, militant cleric in holy garb, breaking down towelers?

Shame that yeomen, craftsmen, hardmen, those who pretend to make something of nothing can no longer do in this Obamanation.

Planters, miners, harvesters, and doers all!   Hear ye, hear ye.  We are crushed, made thin extract of an obaminable system, what wine of wrathfull grape?

That a birth, birthplace, certificate of arrival to the planet, cannot be absolutely verified.  Obaminable.

But those that hoist tea to the sea, against the wishes of the exploiter partee!

Would that everyman could act with full capacity without the extractive class tearing away most of the endeavour.

Bow down, submit, allow yourself to be the harvestable product.   Welcome to U.S. Vespucci.   Takers claw about to destroy what little remains of the productive class.

Drink the bitter dreg unto the bitterest end.

"For in the hand of the Lord there is a cup. The punishment of the wicked is prepared, God himself holds it in readiness; he has collected and concocted woes most dread, and in the chalice of his wrath he holds it. They scoffed his feast of love; they shall be dragged to his table of justice, and made to drink their due deserts.

And the wine is red. The retribution is terrible, it is blood for blood, foaming vengeance for foaming malice. The very colour of divine wrath is terrible; what must the taste be?

It is full of mixture. Spices of anger, justice, and incensed mercy are there. Their misdeeds, their blasphemies, their persecutions have strengthened the liquor as with potent drugs;

"Mingled, strong, and mantling high;

Behold the wrath divine."

OK nmewn, that is sufficient evidence of psychological torture that you have endured, now it is public domain.  Good preparation for when they come to take you away ;-)

And I love it that the dumbed down campaign avoids the build it/fix it part.  You didn't do that either, neither did they.

Buck stops with YOU!

{poor bastard union guys as well, they don't control their progressive "leaders."  I gotta' find the soiund of the thug union executive talking about progressive-->communist.  All a power grab of epic proportions.}

dont know how to say thank you anymore so I won't

all I can say is this is probably better than we deserve and were really lucky to have a guy like you on our side banzai


every single day you skewer the increasingly bullshit ridden zeitgeist with poniards made of pure mind laser - I dont know how you do it, but i and so many others are really grateful that you do :)


no real way to quantify it, but we have need now more than ever of such things - brilliant art like this that not only attacks the enemy, which cuts and cuts through with a single stroke, but also shows us that it can be fun, that we can Enjoy Ourselves and derive pleasure from the fight...


how do i express how important it is that we are able to Delight in attacking tyranny? how crucial it is that it be more than mere work, how essential that we are able to tar and feather, pillory, and otherwise openly insult our enemies with a genuine smile?


you taught us how to love the journey towards freedom


you cast rays of pure sunshine onto a dark path that we all must tread

Thank you to you and all. Keep on trucking ;-)

Have a great Labor Day!

What Ayn Rand Taught Paul Ryan
By Michael Kinsley 2012-08-21T22:30:06Z

“I grew up reading Ayn Rand, and it taught me quite a bit about who I am and what my value systems are and what my beliefs are. It’s inspired me so much that it’s required reading in my office for all my interns and my staff.”

-- U.S. Representative Paul Ryan, Republican vice presidential candidate, in a 2005 speech


.......Ryan thought back on the humiliating “job interview” he had allowed himself to be subjected to before being chosen as Romney’s vice president. Did he have any pregnant, unmarried daughters? Could he see Russia from his living room window?

Worst of all was the probing of his attitude about federal programs such as Medicare and Social Security. His attitude? His attitude was that all of these programs were for pathetic losers. Romney had agreed with him, but said they should keep this opinion under their hats. Ryan had obliged, only long enough to make it through the election. And he despised himself for this. But he did it, and it worked, and the Romney-Ryan team was elected. And now he kept nothing under his hat.

In fact, he didn’t have a hat, or any other article of clothing. Clothing was for weaklings.

It was the opening session of the Senate, Vice President Paul Ryan presiding. The House leadership also was present. Below him he could see and hear so-called leaders of his own party pleading with him to get off the desk and sit in a chair like a normal human being -- or at least put on some clothes, for God’s sake. He cringed inwardly at having to listen to such advice from the likes of Mitch McConnell and John Boehner. ...............

"Let Them Beat Rand"


PS: Is that Alan Greenspan, spanking Alisa Rosenbaum for her ideological impurity?

I believe that's Rom Mittney beating her skinny ass!

Cortez the Killer's picture

Americans have been deluding themselves for over 50 years.  "Labor" is no different from any other commodity.  When scarce the price paid increases; when abundant expect less.

Once the rest of the world came on line it was inevitable that the price paid for American labor would decrease.  And it has a lot further to go.

Maybe Ayn Rand was right; the difference between man and the beasts is his ability to use his brain and to reason.  Brute force is grist for the mill.  Those who use their brain are the true 1%ers.

I am on to you's picture

Your wrong Cortez,man Is a Beast, even the lowest dumb kind,who destroy his own inviroment,and laughing at it:And yes,I said that!

Oh, Cortez;  How I revere your daring and commitment.  The name Hernan should be given to the children of Mexico.  You were a great and saintly killer.  They don't make men like you any more.

Oh for nostaglic propaganda's sake:

See the USA in your Chevrolet 
America is asking you to call 
Drive your Chevrolet through the USA 
America's the greatest land of all 

On a highway, or a road along the levy 
Performance is sweeter, nothing can beat her 
Life is completer in a Chevy 

So make a date today to see the USA
And see it in your Chevrolet

Traveling East, Travelling West
Wherever you go Chevy service is best
Southward or North, near place or far
There's a Chevrolet dealer for your Chevrolet car

So make a date today to see the USA
And see it in your Chevrolet.

Biden proud of Government Motors and losing over 4,000 of our young men and women to go after looney jihadists in a desert.

Doubt Mittens and the Repubs would be any different, they showed their stripes in the bailouts of 2008.

"American Frankenstein" is perfect; Dimon and Blankfein pulling the levers and applying the juice.

"Start the revolution without me" indeed.

Kudos WB7.

Profound stuff, WB ...

Canada has the same September 'Labour Day' as the Americans, I believe ... following the scheme to try and separate workers in North America from the original workers' holiday, May Day ...

Actually an originally American day, but now US regime propaganda tries to sideline 1 May as a 'Communist holiday', even though May Day celebrates the worker uprising in Chicago, Illinois, USA, dating from 1 May 1886 -

A time of American events of worker dissent which, after some American workers became martyrs to the oligarchs, led to great advances in worker rights not only in America, but around the world.

US leaders made the September 'Labour Day' - Americanised 'Labor Day' - to try to make workers less revolutionary in their commemorations.

But God willing there will be a new America ... where the American worker can have their freedoms and rights back, and reclaim that heritage of the original American 'Labour Day' ... Sadly, it may cost the blood of American workers yet further before this is all over
