Protecting Us From the "Terrorist Adversary"

_________________________

If anyone out there still doesn't believe we are in an Orwellian Ultra-Fatherland War-Without-End nightmare check out the title of House Resolution 861 that passed smoothly yesterday:

Declaring that the United States will prevail in the Global War on Terror, the struggle to protect freedom from the terrorist adversary

Oh, what bold leadership! No national healthcare for the most prosperous nation in history.

The Gulf Coast still, in many places, resembles something Godzilla stomped through, while many insurance companies are refusing to pay what they owe.

The minimum wage is stagnant at $5.15 an hour and this, this shit is the best our government can do with their time.

But we will prevail in our war against the "terrorist adversary".

Whoever the hell that may be at any given time.

not only refusing to pay, but soon refusing to offer insurances - yes, the companies KNOW the true enemy, know that it's name is not "terrorist"...

"There is estimated to be a one in three chance that New Orleans will be hit again [in 2006], and insurers as far north as New York are reluctant to provide cover for the storm damage." (Widening tropics 'will drive deserts into Europe')

and not only the companies know what's far more dangerous than some poor little guys insanely hoping to kill someone else while escaping their own lives of humility, inferiority and weakness

(from the link above) "Jeb Bush - the Governor of Florida and the brother of the President - met some of the scientists who had conducted the research, saying that he found their information "compelling"." - an alpa-ape smells what's dangerous for his power - and it is NOT the terrorists...

happy denial, America!

btw: the title of the link above is "original-Independent", the title of the reprint is "Growing tropics push deserts into densely populated zones"

In this extract from his forthcoming memoirs, Kurt Vonnegut is horrified by the hypocrisy in contemporary US politics:

Custodians of Chaos

great text - wow, that guy can write...

but it's scaring how unscaring it is to read his words of frustration and despair - it's fact now...

"Like my distinct betters Einstein and Twain, I now give up on people, too. I am a veteran of the second world war and I have to say this is not the first time I have surrendered to a pitiless war machine.

My last words? "Life is no way to treat an animal, not even a mouse.""

"... the struggle to protect freedom from the terrorist adversary" ==== How tragic that, just like in Vietnam, those 'Hawks' apparently feel the need to "destroy the village in order to save it". Is it any wonder that the rest of the world -- including even our nominal allies -- increasingly realizes how utterly degenerate and brazenly Nazi-like this country's leadership has become?: How US Hid the Suicide Secrets of Guantanamo [The Guardian / UK] ==== After three inmates killed themselves, the Pentagon declared the suicides an act of 'asymmetric warfare', banned the media and went on a PR offensive. But as despair grows within the camp, so too does outrage mount at its brutal and secretive regime ...
