Not This Shit Again 

Memo to America, or perhaps to the mainstream media, who insist on spoon-feeding us this crapola: Nothing celebrities do impact our lives in the slightest. None of them -- Paris, Britney, Lindsay, Phil Spector, OJ -- are news. It doesn't matter, and who the fuck cares?

And yet, over a decade after getting our faces rubbed in it, OJ is all over the news again. Conveniently, it's right after the Phil Spector trial grinds to a halt as the jury deadlocks. And right as the American public needs a juicy distraction from the Administration's attempt to start WW III via Iran. It's enough to make me think that OJ's mystery money is actually coming from the US Treasury, an annuity in exchange for his getting his face in the news whenever an inconvenient government truth needs to be swept under the rug.

Did OJ try to kidnap someone in order to recover stolen property? Who the fuck cares? Was he bailed out on a misdemeanor or held over for a felony? Who the fuck cares. Is he going to jail for life, or retiring to a golf course? WHO THE FUCK CARES?

What gets me is that the crimes, real or imagined, of people of dubious talent who are famous for being famous get more attention than the real crimes of the people entrusted with running this country. If the mainstream media spent one tenth the energy wasted on celebrity crap investigating the bullshit this Administration has fed us from day one, W and Company would have been impeached and imprisoned in April, 2003. There would be no endless quagmire in Iraq, and there would be no Terrorist Problem, because wiser heads would have turned this country away from the very behavior that breeds terrorists.

Memo to the American public: OJ isn't going to show up at your door with a machete, threatening you because you stole his stuff or banged his wife. The personal OJ threat to you is: Absolutely Zero. But... your children are being sent to war, your economy is being plundered, your schools are being ruined, and on and on and on, by the idiots in Washington who are not getting the scrutiny they should.

There's a metaphor for their behavior in all this OJ madness, too. Not five minutes after the possibility of charges were announced on TV, the Goldman family were also on TV, whining to get their hands on any and all of the so-called stolen OJ memorabilia involved. They proved themselves, in this moment, to not give a flying fuck about their dead son. Instead, they are nothing but fame whores and money grubbers. Fred Goldman is as evil as he claims OJ is, and the two of them deserve to just be locked away somewhere cold, dark and far away from TV cameras or public mention ever again.

And the American public deserves far, far more than what our news media has become -- the All Celebrity, All Gossip, All the Time Shitfest of the century. Again, OJ is not news. Demand that the real criminals be brought to justice.

Tuesday, September 04, 2007


By the way, I don't know whether anyone else has noticed -- I'm sure I'm not the only one... but September 11th this year is on a Tuesday. It's on a Tuesday for the first time since that most infamous of September Tuesdays in recent memory.

I point this out only because there have been all kinds of rumblings in the ether lately. The Administration wants war with Iran; a false-flag attack would be the way to make it happen. Or, from the opposite side, terrorists are big on repeat targets and anniversaries. Either way, it means that next Tuesday could be a very bad day.

But, if anything happens on that day, refuse to panic, refuse to fear, and remain vigilant. Question everything. If you happen to be near anything that happens, get out your video cameras and start recording and don't give the tape to anyone; publish online. If you're watching the news coverage, make note of every conjecture on the who, how and why, or the what's going to happen (or what did) and when. Become your own investigative committee in real time, the only time the information gathered really matters.

I hope, and I really don't think, anything is going to happen next Tuesday. But, if it does, we need to know two things. One, no one else is going to bother to look into the real story, so we'll have to do it ourselves, live as it's happening, then harp on every discrepancy and oddity endlessly. And Two, either the whole thing is a gigantic engineered event, created by our own government to justify another useless war, or all of the money and time spent eroding your Civil Liberties and creating a police state has been utterly useless against terrorism, and must end immediately. Either of those two scenarios tells us one truth: our entire elected and appointed apparatus, all three branches, need to be kicked out of office immediately, and replaced with the people of our chosing.

Here's to the sixth anniversary of 9/11 being just a pleasant late summer Tuesday, with memorials and remembrances. But most of all, as we remember the people we lost on that day in 2001, let us also remember everything that We the People have lost since then, as well. And let us do our damnedest to get it all back.

"They hit us because they hate our freedom" is the lie. Our government is taking our freedoms because "they" hit us is the truth. Don't let the real terrorists win.

Absolute Pieces of Shit 

Embattled Senator Larry Craig (R-ID) can't make up his mind about anything. First, he can't decide whether he's straight or gay. Now, he can't decide whether he should resign his Senate seat or not, pending the outcome of his lawyers' attempts to reverse his original guilty as hell plea in the case of Stallgate.

Well, Senator Craig, I've got news for you. There are no "do-overs." You publicly promised to resign as of September 30th, so that's it. Game over, get the hell out of office, then go away. The People of America have accepted your notice; don't let the doorknob hit you in the ass on the way out. Unless you're into that sort of thing.

On top of that, you pled guilty originally. Now that you've been caught with your hand in the nookie jar, you can't change your mind. And I'm sure you're the type of person who would scream the loudest if a person of color insisted, after pleading guilty, that they had been coerced by police. 'Cause you're a "law and order" kinda guy, right Larry? Just like you're a "family values" kinda guy -- meaning: "Law and order and family values for everyone else, but I'm gonna go suck some cock in the men's room."

But if you need any more evidence to prove that Larry Craig is an utter scumbag who doesn't deserve to breath the same air as the rest of us, one of his lawyers who is now trying to make with the fancy footwork to undo the guilty plea is... Billy Martin. That name might not sound familiar, but another of his current clients, who is also a gigantic piece of shit, is someone you've heard of.

Craig's attorney is also defending Michael Vick against the indefensible -- and Vick pled guilty as well. I can only wonder whether Martin is just experimenting with the magic vanishing plea on Craig, so that he can perfect his strategy, then pull it down the line with the much richer Vick. "But your honor, my client didn't know they were dogs..."

And Craig didn't know he was going to get a dick in his hand when he reached under the stall; felt no remorse until he got a policeman's business card instead. Yeah, right.

Craig, Vick, their lawyers -- and Arlen Specter (R-PA), who seems to be the one who planted the "unresign" idea in Craig's mind -- are all absolute total pieces of shit. They don't deserve positions of esteem and power. They just deserve to be swept down the bowl in a swirl of cleansing water, washed out to sea, and forgotten.

Resign, Craig. You screwed the pooch, now go.
