      So you approach Muslims, talk them into taking part in “terror” plots, then announce you’ve caught a terrorist. Why, it’s just like the drug war: The U.S.  Justice Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) have targeted American Muslims in abusive counterterrorism “sting operations” based on religious and ethnic identity, Human Rights Watch an […]

    • If China is with you, you are not isolated in the world
      The shooting down of Malaysian Airlines MH17 has led to a vituperative barrage in the Western media (and social media), blaming Russia.  This barrage has been fomented, in large part, by the White House, which has been relentless. Many act as if Russia is horribly in the wrong, isolated, and alone. China’s Xinhua wrote this: [...]

Who cares??

 

If you’re going to build a 90,000 sq ft home, don’t make it look like the Bellagio.
It’s tacky.

So Mitt goes to a fundraiser and tells his donors just what they want to hear.  47% of Americans are lazy, parasites.

In 2008, Obama went to a fundraiser and told his donors just what they wanted to hear. A lot of voters are stupid, gun totin’, knuckle draggers.

You know what this tells me?

Big money donors don’t know squat about what it’s like to live in America without a trust fund and a portfolio of hedge fund investments.  AND they tend to judge books by their covers and their mamas didn’t raise them right.

In other words, these people, and their candidates, have nothing to do with me.

You can elect whoever you want in 2012.  There will be some people who will tell you that picking a specific presidential candidate makes a difference.  Based on how they talk to their donors, I don’t see it that way.  I don’t like either of these people and how they talk to their donors doesn’t phase me in the least.  Last year, I was paying more than enough in taxes to keep a family of four above the poverty line.  This year, I make below the poverty line in income.  So, in a year, I’ve gone from 25 years of responsibility as a drug designer of cancer therapies to a deadbeat, indistinguishable from the trailer trash, high school dropout without teeth who thinks Jerry Springer has high-falutin’ guests.

I think we have the donors to thank for that.

I’ve got more important things to worry about than how clueless a bunch of rich people are.  Their day is coming when they have taken the last bit of value off the top of the mountain and their whole reason for being is suddenly meaningless.  Maybe after that, they’ll realize that they’ve got a problem.

But that is not my concern right now.  And, frankly, I don’t really give a damn.
