Hello Dear Readers. My my, its been a while since my last post. How about something thoroughly soul crushing?
Our Supreme Court has gone against the grain and showed us the appointment of Roberts and Alito won’t always lead to pro-corporate rulings by issuing a fucking ridiculous pro-corporate ruling: Exxon needn’t pay up for its oil spill, HAHA ALASKANS YOU DUMB FUCKERS. Seriously they might as well have individually slapped every Alaskan. Though Palin would still be shouting “thank you sir, you may drill another!”.
Barack Obama has decided he needs to do more to live up to his campaign promises of promote transparency and delivering change we can believe in by doing the exact fucking opposite. This shit deserves to be quoted:
only through leaks that we tend to learn of the incompetence and fuckery of the government. When stories surface that show how various government agencies are screwing the pooch, the only correct course of action is to fix the fuckups, not punish those who made the fuckups public.
Prosecuting, nay, persecuting whistleblowers is an anti-freedom, anti-transparency move.
Great move oh Hope inspiring one.
Finally let’s have a look see at the economic writing on the wall. Will the middle class thrive into the future? Will we realize that asking the middle class and poor to suffer to support the gambling habits of the ultra rich is not only unsustainable but utterly unjust, and rise up to at least make a fucking peep? Nope. Now click the shit out of this link and read the whole article. Come back when you are done. I’ll be waiting.
Holy shit, right?
So that’s our glorious new world. To keep from plunging into utter despair I will leave out the current economic/environmental disaster known as BP, the gaping holes in our government that let the oil spill through, the fact that a larger rig with safety violations galore (operated by BP as well) is being allowed to keep running, the massive displays of racism in Arizona, etc etc.
We live in interesting times.
