Barack vs. The Oligarchy : Deal or No Deal?

22 April 08, The Almost Daily Binx, San Jose, CA, by Binx101

PA Primary Underway in America’s Family-rooms

“Abandon any thoughts that this is democracy in action.”

While it is assumed that only the popular vote statewide will reign accurate today, American homes will be lit up with the glow of TV’s carrying the coverage from a variety of sources.  Sports analogies ad nauseum will be hoisted as commentary and in-depth analysis will challenge consciousness.  Yet, the simple approach will be denied since “More = Wins  / Less = Loses” is not the vehicle that will inspire folks to buy a plethora of products that drive Corporate news profits.

While not a hard and fast rule – some info-tainers will use hockey allegory and others will make comparisons via baseball.  It’s all in the demographics provided by the analysts that no-one sees inside the infotainment HQ.  But, make no mistake – this is not about the USA, this is about the US currency that is the ultimate object drawing your viewership.  Abandon any thoughts that this is Democracy in action.  That will wait until after the election and will be relegated to the heady pages of the not so profitable periodicals, Web-life and Congressional reports.  A few radio outlets can be added to the list, but with very few exceptions – they are mostly entertainment and focus on listener consensus, lest they cannot survive.  Yes, there are exceptions but they are very limited.

The Power is Not in the Electorate

“coalition-of-the-shilling.”

What ???  Unfortunately this is, for the most part, true.  The power is in the hands of the Oligarchs that essentially tell the electorate how to vote.  How to cast their ballot based on political operatives that influence the community, churches and the above-mentioned smorgasbord of media outlets.

Take ABC the during last weeks faux-debate of the Democratic opponents.  By now, any interested American with an Internet connection or a TV knows there is considerable criticism of the manner in which the debate was handled.  Our own words on the subject can be found <here.>

After the article was written it was learned that the question that George Stephanopoulos posed to Barack Obama about Mr. Ayers was actually part of the list of talking points that were provided to Right Wing Activist Promoted – Sean Hannity – a Fox News info-tainer.  Hannity is known for his promotion of Right Wing extremism and his close relationship with Rush Limbaugh, Anne Coulter and a variety of the coalition-of-the-shilling.  Careful examination will reveal to anyone with the time that this is a widely deployed practice.  The talking points are unmistakable and reformed “Republican Conservative Hit-man” David Brock, routinely tracks the major disinformation of the American public at Media Matters.

You know that phrase, The Most Trusted Name in News?  Forget it for now.  It has deteriorated into oblivion since it was first flown as a flag – and we helped it with a collective fixation on ourselves.

The Power is in the Power

“…self importance is the fulcrum that political charlatans use to leverage their doctrine.”

It is political operatives (now reformed David Brock tells us) that move elections by moving people’s minds in a carefully plotted direction over a period of time.

It is brainwashing.

It is programming.

It is an American political reality.

It is as difficult to detect as a dose of arsenic in an almond flavored liqueur.

Many Americans obsessed with achieving social status, whether locally among a small rural crowd or in larger economically aggressive circles, are perfect subjects.  Why else, would any responsibly minded individual spend 50K on an SUV to negotiate the parking lot of the mall, that averages 13 miles to the gallon, in an era when energy, carbon foot-print and green initiatives abound.  It is because self importance is the fulcrum that political charlatans use to leverage their doctrine.

And the Power is the Oligarchy

“… the Nation has never been less secure, including the final months of the Revolutionary War.

A hand full of people are actually controlling the game.  Even after proving that the Ohio and Florida elections were essentially rigged in the 2000; even though miscreants such as Rep. Peter King -R, NY on a drunken tear described that “others” would see to the “counting” and declared a Republican win long before polls closed.  Follow his career and the careers of long list of political operatives with marching orders in Congress.  Parties that “we” the American people empowered with thoughtless votes because someone bought us a pulled pork sandwich, or got the zoning board to change a long-standing ruling that favored us, or got a friend’s friend’s friend’s son into Annapolis or West Point.  Great guy that Pete King !

Create a need and fill the gap.  We’re very simple. We say things that are truly indicative of the oldest social rules of society.  You scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours – the mainstay of simpleton compromise.  The mainstay of political compromise. An unusually dangerous practice when a Nation is in peril, a currency is in terrible danger of further devaluation; and the Nation has never been less secure, and that includes the final months of the Revolutionary War.

Hillary Clinton Endorsed by the Man That Paid 24 Million to Destroy Her???

“What experience?  Certainly not being the President’s wife.”

Perhaps it’s all just coincidence or perhaps she agreed to pardon George Bush for war crimes that are certain to be charged; or perhaps it’s just a matter of magnanimously letting bygones-be-bygones; but, doesn’t it ring particularly peculiar that Richard Mellon Scaithe (you want to see power? – try to find a picture of him – go ahead, use the google !! )- the known financial backer of the “War on the Clintons” including Whitewater, Foster, Hubbell and the “intern,” felt compelled to give her a listen ???  Did you read  his interview as he expressed that he sorta-kinda was impressed by her??  As though one meeting with his board around a table was all it took to undo a decade and half of vitriol and warfare ???  (For anyone unconvinced of the dark workings afoot – we’ll be offering a series of $100 NYC bridges and  $25 Rolex watches for sale soon on our website, and forwarding the profits to offset health care expenses for the uninsured)

It would be hard to conceive that Hillary Clinton believes that the residents of Pennsylvania are so collectively stupid that they wouldn’t suspect something of on unsavory alliance.  Yet, the Corporate Media is with few exceptions – silent on the matter.  All fist pumping aside – wasn’t it a tad suspicious when Hillary Clinton began articulating that John McCain’s experience was superior to Barack Obama??  Yet to date, not one corporate media outlet has demanded that the Clinton campaign provide data relying to her repeated claims of experience.  What experience?  Certainly not being the President’s wife.  If that were a benchmark, wouldn’t the Republicans have been more encouraged to run Laura Bush instead of McCain, who is clearly out of his mind and in the pocket of Oligarchy’s Founders Club?

The Oligarchy Antidote – Americas Youth and their Revolutionary Spirit

“A pusillanimous pipsqueak of atomic proportions that appeared in a Cameo on a TV show that depicts his style of leadership. Deal or No Deal…”

There is truly on one thing our Nation can count on right now and that is to have faith in the youth of our Country.  A youth that is not so lazy and marred.  A youth that respectfully marches off to war, even when they don’t understand. Alas, many more didn’t march off to war and among this youth our Nation will rely to grab control of a runaway train.  They’ll seek the counsel of wisdom and experience from a dwindling yet less graft susceptible bench of experience in order to help temper our collective anger; and, to tamp our disgust at our appointed President.   Disgust at his utter disregard for the many crises he’s caused around the globe, dutifully following the orders of his handlers, defiantly wearing a smirk of incomprehension as though it were a handle-bar mustache.  Proud to defy our eyes and ears; George W. Bush describes a beautiful landscape while we stare in grief at the wreckage in his wake.

A pusillanimous pipsqueak of atomic proportions that appeared in a Cameo on  a TV show that depicts his style of leadership. Deal or No Deal, missing all but the neanderthal shrugging, raised eyebrow and indiscernible breathy utterance that traditionally follows in succession near feeding time.

Much more of our youth has witnessed the mind boggling performance of the Oligarchy’s latest virtuoso, and we trust they can see the difference between smoke and mirrors, and a chance to bring America to a rehab with public service, volunteerism and reasoned discourse; as well as, abolishing the “voodoo economics” that Ronald Reagan sold us with the same lack of understanding and unbridled enthusiasm as he sold us Borax when he hosted a TV series.   A time when theatre goers rejected him yet the Oligarchs mustered the resources to support his rise as Goverenor so they could appoint him as President while the voters went through the motions.

White House Gambling : A Terminal Legacy

– 9 April 08, The Almost Daily Binx, San Jose, CA; by Binx101

Averaging Down

“… limit the down-side risk, even if a security drops in value like stone…”

Anyone that has ever made a living in the equities markets understands the term – Averaging Down.  From a strictly pragmatic perspective, it makes sense on paper.  That is to say, if you have a holding in a stock, and the price goes down, your average price of ownership will be lower if you buy more at lower prices.  This may be a sound investment approach, however, it presupposes some very important details; simply stated, one must be confident that the security in long-term is in general good health, and will return to higher prices over a period of time that is suitable to the investor, fund or trust.

It gets a little more risky, when the money that one uses to ‘buy’ the security is in actuality, borrowed. However, the consummate professional will mitigate that risk by using an ‘options’ strategy (remember that word-options) as an insurance of sorts on the overall value.  That is to say, it is very possible to limit the down-side risk, even if a security drops in value like stone off a cliff.  Conversely, the upside is also limited when using these tools.   In the options markets these tools are referred to as straddles and spreads.

Brand Loyalty – Averaging Down America

“… a partnership of considerable criminal activity and fiduciary negligence…”

However, averaging-down, became a practice that assisted in the market crash of the late eighties and again in the ‘dot.com bubble bursting’ in 2000 that sired a Recession.  It was aided by an exuberant investing public; largely unsophisticated in the capital markets. and preyed upon by an industry that used Average-Down as a war cry to unload empty promises and essentially fleece the personal holdings of millions of people around the Globe.  What distinguished these times from any other times are the tremendous number of predatory investment firms that were unloading their falsely inflated holdings into the hands of individual investors.

Do you remember seeing scores of large investment firms folding during that time?   No you don’t.  But we’ll bet you remember thousands of stories of personal fortunes gone up in smoke; blamed on the ‘bubble’ – but it was not a bubble at all. It was a partnership of considerable criminal activity and fiduciary negligence by the stalwarts of the investment community, that was compounded by an ineffective Clinton Administration SEC in the late ’90’s; and, further compounded by the Bush re-fitting of the SEC by installing former industry professionals throughout American government that all had ties to the Casino.

The introduction of ‘interested’ parties has essentially circumvented the cornerstone Securities Acts following the Great Depression, that were put in place to prevent precisely what has happened in the sub-prime mortgage debacle.  The industry operatives actually created new products, not covered under the acts and placed them in Real-Estate Investment Trusts, Limited Partnerships and other Money Market transactions  are not particularly visible until there is a disaster in the market.  This is a highly abbreviated explanation but we sure you get the point.  Just think of all those ‘who-done-it’ movies’ where someone gets suspicious and checks the hospital bed only to find the patient is gone and carefully placed pillows and blankets have been fooling the guard.

The Money Machine – Transferring American Assets

” … lobbyists posing as a great deal of the Republican legislature.”

Just imagine now that the most successful harvesters of the dozen or so years preceding 2000 got together and picked our next President.  He would have to be fluent in English, but not competent in its use. He would need to be a desperate chronic failure in order that a groundswell of disgruntled Americans would see the personification of the American Dream.  That is to say, that even a sub-average guy, with bad manners and a tawdry past could be President. But … he would have to have an ostensible pedigree. Enter, Gov. George W. Bush in a cloud of dust that would soon be revealed as the power brokers of energy, banking and warfare.

Of course the great illusion, notwithstanding, our precious Nation has been in the hands of those that cut-their-teeth on fleecing the American people in the investment markets and energy markets, and now had unprecedented access to the machine that prints the money.  The only price to pay was to hoist an essentially empty suit and pose him as the American President.  Not unlike the movie ‘Dave,’ we actually have had no leadership other than a committee of investment bankers that are building a web of tunnels to the money machine before they appear to leave town, and their expanded roster of lobbyists posing as a great deal of the Republican legislature.

But maybe even worse, that have taken the hard earned money of the American taxpayer and converted it into personal wealth of no particular domain other than their own.  The converted assets have been cached in Dubai, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and other points that the bloodhounds would not be unable to track.

Caveat Emptor

“… as they camouflage the wreckage they will leave the next President …”

From our perspective the American public needs to be degaussed; that is to say, the polarity that was manufactured by the Casino at the White House needs to neutralized, in such a way that a dialog can actually occur and our lawmakers can once again become lawmakers instead of hawkers for the bus tours to the Casino.

The first step though is coming to a belief that we have all contributed in some way to permitting this incredible force of impostors and charlatans to fleece our Treasury, Invalidate our Military, spend and ruin American and Iraqi lives like demented Roman Gods and cause most of the world to view the US as a hegemonic and ruthless homestead of dangerous compulsive gamblers on one of the greatest losing streaks in modern history.  We must take some of the blame and petition our leaders, watch them closely, remain involved and take the reigns of a form of government in lieu of the Constitutional Principles that so many Americans have given their lives to preserve.

Americans are divided, largely because of steady diet of misdirection and misinformation.  The American Press, now a Corporate-For-Profit privatized source of information is very likely not to bite the hand that feeds it.  We consider the result that free enterprise has had on the press as tantamount to the Iron Curtain.

It will take a great amount of American spirit and personal reflection to get our friends and neighbors once again confident in our system.  The current race for the Democratic nomination and ultimately the race for president while healthy, is not always particularly helpful, inasmuch as the race has served to distract us from the current confounding acts of the Administration as they camouflage the wreckage they will leave the next President of the United States.

Next President : Holistic Leader, No Gambling the Public Trust

“… inspire repair to what has become the road lest traveled.”

We believe there is every possibility that the next American President will preside over the greatest period of reconstruction since FDR.  Our next President better very well speak of Hope and Public Service and be inspirational.  We Americans need to shed our selfishness and rampant consumerism; our insatiable appetites for ego stroking and status; and return to a time of values that are based in liberty, freedom and equality. Where we didn’t need labels and memberships designed to create a caste system of the ‘haves’ and ‘have-mores’ that have been convinced that one political party wants them to be prosperous and the other wants to take their wealth away.  That one political party has a brand on Patriotism and the other party is somehow un-American.

Let us face that the arguments between conservatives and liberals has been fabricated by third parties that are neither and have distracted the American conscience while they have looted the treasury.  At some point we accept we are in this together and the only way to avoid further disillusionment is to rise above the confines of our egos and false fact.  We have no need for idols, we need to elect a fine manager that can assemble, with particular scrutiny, a group of patriots to inspire repair to what has become the road lest traveled.

We believe that American People, need to start speaking for themselves and not be irrelevant quotes on the lips of politicians that have wrapped pork products in the dashed hopes and countless tax dollars of American patriots.  We need to see the draped coffins of our military dead so that the Americans face the full version of reality, not the edited version we’ve become accustomed.  And, we must care – care for our Nation not just the interior of our new car, or whether our neighbor is mowing his lawn at 7 AM.  We need to care about Americans health and welfare.  We need to care as much for living children as we do for unborn fetuses.  We need to focus on the many things we share – and break the habit of specious argument, exaggerated threats and unabashed lying that George W. Bush and his handlers have purposelly addicted the US electorate.

Doing good things for our neighbors, both foreign and domestic, is the balm that always healed America.

Cheese S. Rice: Bush Administration Lord and Saviour

-3 April 08, The Almost Daily Binx, San Jose, CA; by Binx101

The christians (small ‘c’)

“… special kind of military industrial complex with religion bringing us a Cheese S. that speaks directly to demented world leaders …”

From where in Cheese’s name did they come?  Apparently they came right from under our nose where they were mixing it up with actual Christians that were so eager to serve,  they dove deep into their shallow pockets in order that others could thrive better than they themselves could survive.  Indeed, a union of great sacrifice, determination and the faith-filled good intentions of average hard working American Christians were shanghaied by the small ‘c’ christians as they mixed a special kind of military industrial complex with religion bringing us a Cheese S. that speaks directly to demented world leaders and instructs them to attack other sovereign Nations with other fist pumping american (small ‘a’) christians cheering them on and attributing all world disorder to Liberal (big ‘L’) Communist (big ‘C’) sympathizers.

Foolishness

  “No fooling.”

However, the christians’ focus remained on the magical collection basket and how easy the Christians made it look.  Cheese S. Rice!!!  It is almost fool-proof.  That is to say the plan requires a continuous abundance of fools, previously fooled; and, without fooling around, the fools lead other fools to assist in keeping the foolish from fouling up the foolishness.  No fooling.

How it Works

“… it is referred to as Cheese’s Will.”

Things that are clearly explainable by invoking the rule book – are called ‘Teachings’.  If it is not explained in the rule book but still requires understanding it is referred to as ‘Having Faith’.  If it does not immediately increase the bottom line of the christian Corporation it is called ‘Dogma.’  However, when opportunities arise to increase the net worth of the christian Corporation and its board of directors – it is referred to as ‘Cheese’s Will.’

How Crude !

“… an abundance of disgruntled imbeciles.”

More simply stated, the christians, (as opposed to Christians) have managed to secularize a Deity that rules over the World currency and oil.  While the term  ‘secularized Deity’ may appear to be an oxymoron, it is our observation that the entire christian process is very heavily reliant on an abundance of disgruntled imbeciles. Again, we feel compelled to remind the reader that we are referring to the christians, and not Christians, albeit there is some similiarity in tactics.

John McCain: “… I Don’t Care What Anybody Says!”

25 Mar 08, San Jose, CA, The Almost Daily Binx, by Binx101

NEO CON Talking Points

” …lacks in statesmanship he compensates with a frightening loyalty …”

mccainbagdhad.jpg

… And my Democrat opponents who want to pull out of Iraq refuse to understand what’s being said and what’s happening _ and that is the central battleground is Iraq in this struggle against radical Islamic extremism,” said John McCain;  just as the US Death Toll in Iraq passed the 4,000 dead mark.

Indeed, John McCain is one tough talking hombre – and that is precisely what his supporters want to hear him say.  What he lacks in statesmanship he compensates with a225px-william_kristol.jpg frightening loyalty to a “Stay-the-Course” credo adopted by the Bush administration in the worst management of our Nation’s affairs in World History.  Just ask William Krystol, the Neo Con man about town, that has been very Right, but not correct on any political observation since he was dubbed “Dan Quayle’s Brain.”

Continuously pushing the Islamic extremist line in an effort to garner support from his ilk of American, John McCain further drives world opinion  as the antithesis of America’s former greatness.  He may be even less “statesman-like” than George W. Bush, if that’s at all possible.

We’re Succeeding in Iraq?

“… world peace … seeing the United States as a haven for mentally deranged leaders … dark ages.”

jm1.jpg

This leaves little doubt that John McCain has taken the loyalty oath to the NEO CON empire.  Some of the American public desperate to prove that the U.S. invasion of  Iraq  was actually a response to the pleas of Iraqis to topple the dictator Saddam Hussein; this continuous eroding acid rain of misinformation has crept into the American understanding and pockets of U.S. citizens actually have adopted the propoganda in the same manner as McCain, in order to assuage the terrible guilt.

The kind of terrible guilt that drives unconscionable blindness to inhumane conditions that our Nation has actually produced in the Nation, dispossessing tens of thousands of otherwise peaceful Iraqi Jews, Christians and Muslims.  A haunting of the reality that the United States’ antagonistic meddling in the region has done little to aid a peace process since the end of World War II and much to keep the pot boiling.

Our first step towards world peace will be when the rest of the world stops seeing the United States as a haven for mentally deranged leaders with the potential of plunging the marionette.jpgbalance of the globe into the dark ages.

John McCain is just another stage character in the political puppet cast that Americans have been buying as legitimate leadership, instead of the political theatrical farce it has become.

John McCain: Liar, Lunatic or Lamprey

20 Mar 08, San Jose, CA; The Almost Daily Binx; by Binx101

McCain Conflates Insurgents and Al Quaeda

In a stunning series of misstatements, lapses in reality or purposeful conflation of competing violent forces, John McCain has been regularly misinforming anyone who will lmccaintux.jpgisten, about the facts on the ground in Iraq.  Simply stated – he just makes stuff up.  Chaperoned by Lindsay Graham and Joe Lieberman, McCain repeatedly has been making misstatements about actual facts to the amazement of his detractors and the chagrin of his supporters for nearly four years since he first hugged George Bush, made up with Jerry Falwell and broke loaves with Pat Robertson. However, his penchant for malapropism and his unique and somewhat disconnected style has seemed to heighten since he accepted the endorsement of the Catholic hating and Race baiting porcine preacher, Pastor John Hagee.

Neo Con Broadcast Flotilla: Search and Rescue

The Ultra-conservative story telling newsies have been exercising their free speech with Naval precision and have created a gale force wind to power what appears to a right wing spokes-model regatta in order to elevate the diminutive McCain to honorary Admiral of regatta.jpgthe Neo Con Navy.

The corporate news media has given him so much coverage on his recent trip to Iraq, Israel and the UK, that we at The Almost Daily Binx have deduced that this was a campaign strategy that actually permitted McCain to use public funds in order to keep him in the news while the Democratic slugfest gets uglier.  All in all, not a bad strategy, playing by the rules.  Kudo’s for McCain’s ingenious use of life-support.

The Sucking Fish

That’s how a lamprey feeds.  It’s known as the sucking fish.  Some don’t even think that the jawless creature should even should be considered, in a traditional  sense, a true fish.   We feel the same way about lamprey.jpgJohn McCain.  He’s not actually a people’s candidate, he’s more like the candidate that is most likely to continue the policies and prop up the protagonists of the current Supreme Court appointed President.

We think he’s very much the land version of this distinct fish.  His recent reversal on torture was without question a lamprey defining moment.  His recent series of … untruths … about the devastation in Iraq, and his callous disregard for life in the region and his expressionless recital of invertabrate William Krystol’s talking points is further evidence of a fish that isn’t really a fish.

The King of Iraq: “… Good to be back …”

-17 Mar 08, The Almost Daily Binx, San Jose, CA; by Binx1o1

The King’s New Clothes and Old Advisers

 “… Financial  Adviser – Haleeb Ehrton …”

austincheney1.jpgCompleting a meeting with Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, His Highness King Pin, father of modern Iraq, described delight in what he views as ‘phenomenal’ changes and ‘dramatic improvements in security.  Then, without assistance, he walked among the people while he quietly spoke in tongues to a higher power.   The King also conferred with his Chief Financial Adviser – Haleeb Ehrton and his Chief War Adviser  Balak Wutah.  “So, so very good to be back”  He was greeted by throngs of US Military who immediately covered him in Kevlar warming attire so he wouldn’t be chilled.

 

 Joined by Beltway Magi

“… and Prince Olderndirt …”

The King’s visit was preceded by a completely coincidental visit to the area of his threestooges1.jpg adopted sons, all Princes, otherwise known as the Beltway Magi. Prince Indy, Prince Hokey, and Prince Olderndirt have come home in order to buy photographs, or sell photographs or some type of opportunity having to do with photography.  Reports remain unclear.

King Pin says, “Heckuva Job”

“… he could hardly recognize the place …”

Security measures were elevated and current violence reduced ‘5 bombs-a-day’ to ‘0 bombs-a-day’ in the Green Zone in honor of the King’s visit and the super-surprise visit of the 71 year old Prince Olderndirt, looking over investments that he expects to be viable for the next 100 years. Hokey and Indie are visiting in order to buy rugs.

King Pin, also known in the West simply as – Dick – commended the contractors and military alike for their bravery and hard work.  Fox News reported him saying he could hardly recognize the place.  A sentiment most often expressed by native Iraqis on a regular basis.

John McCain: Owned by the NeoCon Empire

15 Mar 08, The Almost Daily Binx, San Jose, CA – by Binx101

McCain Town Hall Meeting – Set Ups

“… Strawman dialogue currently under development at NeoCon hate laboratories …”

The NeoCon extreme right is going to start with their own version of  the ‘Kitchen Sink’. mccain-passing-the-buck.jpg For example – John McCain’s meeting in Pennsylvania  – fears that al Qaeda or another extremist group might attempt spectacular attacks in Iraq to try to tilt the U.S. election against him.  This was in response to an obviously planted question in Springfield, PA, regarding whether or not McCain is concerned about foriegn extremists helping get Democrats elected in the US.  Yes… read it again …. that’s what we wrote.

American’s better get used to this type of new Strawman dialogue currently under development at NeoCon hate laboratories all over the US.  This is only the beginning.  We haven’t even gotten to the actual contest … this is just the warm-ups.

McCain – Unfit for Presidency

“A combat pilot and a descendant of a long line of distinguished Naval heroes notwithstanding, we think John McCain is demonstrably unfit to be President.”

John McCain vociferously contested US use of torture, but then, as if out of the blue, changed his tune and voted against the torture ban.  Why?

The answer isn’t complicated at all.  In fact, its very simple.  John McCain has written in his own memoir and has been endlessly quoted about his personal experience, having broken warningmccain.jpgunder torture.  But alas, he’s also been very clear in repeated statements that torture does not work.  Okay then, which is it?

Our vote is that McCain is Mad.  Not Mad as in angry, not Mad as in Mad Magazine … no were thinking of  Mad as  in the Tin Foil Hat denomination. He’s a man of extremes.  Black or White.  ON or OFF.  Hot or Cold. Angry or Smiling. And subject to change his mind at the drop of hat, but more likely at the drop of check or endorsement.

We should be very afraid of a McCain presidency.  If one thinks that George W. Bush was the perfect front man for NeoCon masters – he’s a total amateur next to this genuine war survivor – who has actually done the things that Bush imagines he’s done himself.  He’s been in command.  A combat pilot and a descendant of a long line of distinguished Naval heroes notwithstanding, we think John McCain is demonstrably unfit to be President.

He’s changed his opinions with reckless abandon.  Can you imagine anything more clearly representative of dementia than John McCain, a tortured prisonerjm.jpg of war,  reversing himself and embracing torture as a viable tool of Democracy.  We can’t.  Further, we think its the big tip-off that the man has gone totally mad.

We’re not fooled by set-up Town Hall questions or an enthusiastic group of Neanderthals that think that we should occupy Iraq for the next 100 years.  Sorry – thanks for your service – but with all due respect – take a seat.
