Arrogance is Fascism

We live in what might be considered the most distasteful and darkest times of American history; save 400 years of slavery and the abject brutal discrimination of anyone of “color”. The Shrub legacy had already been defined in the first two years of his presidency, and continues to the nth degree in the three years that has followed. It is incredulous to many that the blatant disregard for liberty and human life is so widely accepted in the wake of the September 11th attacks on the U.S continues unabated- the ease that trifles such as the tens of thousands of Iraqi deaths and the continuous kidnapping, torture and assassination of non-combatants in the war against “terror” are totally disregarded in the name of “freedom” and “safety”. And that is just speaking of acts committed by the U.S. side; not even considering the “insurgency”.

We have to acknowledge, although you wont find nary a mention in all mainstream and even in many of the alternative presses; that the willingness to shoot, kill or maim anyone deemed as a “possible threat” is an acceptable practice and is being carried out with “extreme prejudice.”

what do they fear?

Current mood: amused

I just found out, persons from europe are being blocked from view the www.georgewbush.com web site– a friend of mine from slovenia found out today and found this article.. http://www.dmeurope.com/default.asp?ArticleID=4075

Perhaps they are afraid of… well shit. i cant think of a single reason they’d ban anyone. Unless they weren’t first vetted pledging an oath of undying support for Shrub. and what use do the RNC and Shrub have for the europeans anyway? Smelly liberal lot of cheese eaters. The plus side, the more they close themselves off, the better chance we have of them just dissappearing. Ya know?

at what point does it just get too fucking ridiculous?

Current mood: Mother-fuckin’ ripshit violent

It’s just too much- forget the fact that estimates now say over 100,000 Iraqis have been killed, that innocent aid workers are being kidnapped and beheaded, that the incredible self serving greed got us into all this in the first place- forget all that. I expect government to lie, cheat, steal. Look at Clinton the great middle-of-the-roader. Yeah- he’s light years better than the current administration, but he passed many policies that fucked with the environment, supported big business over social policy, etc.

But you know- as much as I hate the Neocons and their Reaganite legacy,e ven after they bought the supreme court so they could win- i never ever EVER expected they would go so low as to hire people that throw out ballots, try to change election laws at the minute to screw the vote, employ intimidation and threats to keep people from voting, do every vile possible thing to subvert the democratic process. This goes way beyond Florida in 2000. This isn’t Sierra Leon. This isn’t El Salvador. This is AMERICA. I am so fucking offended. I’m no pollyanna- after years of political activism in college and beyond trying to push for justice globally and help save the people of the world- I realized that these people mostly don’t want to be saved. I kept fighting anyway. It was the right thing to do. I know that we do not live in a representative democracy. If we did, Gore would have won and the electoral college would not exist. I’ve read Howard Zinn. I understand the fallacy of freedom and liberty for all and how our country is set up to benefit the wealthy by keeping a large middle class in the middle to keep the poor from rioting.
I’m no fucking Pollyanna.
But, for all the flag thumping, bible humping, rhetoric dumping; I still had a belief that these people at some core level believed in the United States and the governmental structure that our founders set up. I can even extend myself enough to even think that some of them think they are right and are not only out for greed and white christian supremacy. I have once again been proven wrong and once again my ability to have any faith in anything has been bashed into a bloody pulp.
I get emotional when I vote. Really. i walk into a polling booth and I feel a rush of blood through my body, my cock stiffens, my heart rate increases and tears well in my eyes. It’s so important to me. It’s so intrinsic to the very basic precepts of a free society. It’s the only thing I hold dearly from the laws of men that has any meaning and worth. The right to vote is America. Without, even the lie of what we stand for is meaningless.
I am so sick with anger, i want to spit and spit and spit.

I am so sick with anger, i can’t feel anything.

I am so sick with anger.

I feel so sick.

The American Jihad

The American Jihad

In one of his video appearances, Osama Bin Laden invited the world of Islam to rise up against the western world. The Bush administration has apparently decided to meet this challenge. Some even question if they made this decision prior to September 11th, 2001.

While the campaign in Afghanistan was at first questionable, it actually did accomplish several positive things (disrupting Al-Qeda, forcing Pakistan and India into a tense peace) with a minimal loss of innocent lives. Sadly, the promises to support and rebuild the country after the ‘war” have largely gone unfulfilled; Kabul remains in ruins and the country is still fraught with violence and desperation while War Lords slowly resume control of areas pockets of the country and the opium trade was set back on track.

The saddest aspect of the US response to the September 11th attacks was the unprecedented opportunity to create something positive out of the horrific events of that day. The world, in response, was aghast at the mass murder that took place in New York and Washington D.C. that morning. Even long-time sworn enemies of the US demonstrated support and sent condolences. But instead of taking this momentum begat from global outrage at terrorist violence and murder of innocent non-combatant citizens and creating a world-wide forum of unity against such acts, the Bush administration pulled out the Bush I-era Wolfowitz document and almost immediately used it to polarize the world. “You are with us or you are against us,” said Bush II.
