In a comment on my recent post Pelosi, Schumer & the DNC: Their Time Machine Is Stuck In the Past, JoelDanWalls posted the following:

It’ll be a lot easier to take your arguments seriously when you quit reserving your ire and contempt for the people who are trying to stop the GOP from destroying what remains of the American republic.

I started a reply, and it grew.

Here it is.

Read on.
It would be a lot easier to “take [my] arguments seriously” if you realized that my ire and contempt are bipartisan in nature. I reserve them for the people who are presently destroying what remains of the American republic and doing a damned good destruction job on the environment of the earth while they are at it. Democrats and Republicans.

For example. (Only one of many possible examples…total, bipartisan, monetarily-enforced corporate control of the government being the most serious.):

War.

Have you any idea of the amount of pollution that is spewed out by the militaries of this world.? Even in peacetime, if such a thing actually exists today?

The U.S military is the worst of all of them.

Check it out, loyal Democrat. Check out what happened when Obama had a Democratic House and Senate during the first two years of his first term. (See below for the sickening details.)

A vote for war…war often waged under totally false pretenses as were the Iraq, Vietnam and Korean debacles…is a vote against the environment. A vote for massively overfunding the military, a vote for allowing the military industrial complex to vastly overcharge on second-rate goods, a vote for allowing the intelligence system to wage secret wars all over the world? They are all votes against the environment. A compromise with warmakers in the name of “pragmatic politics?” Same same.

When the environment of the entire earth is at stake? The phrase “World War” takes on a whole new meaning.

War on the Earth!!!


Bet on it.

P.S. I got your “Peace President.” Right here!!! Facts, not fictions…and the following is just a list of U.S. overt military actions 2009-2010. As bloated as is the U.S. intelligence/Special Forces/private military contractors system, I do not believe that anybody could succeed in making a complete list of its skullduggery. Not in any year.

An old beatnik joke:

A beatnik type never stops snapping his fingers unless he’s asleep. Eventually he’s arrested for disturbing the peace at some movie theater. They take him in for questioning and decide he must be crazy, so they bring in a psychiatrist to interview him.


Psychiatrist: Why do you insist on continuing to snap your fingers?


Beatnik: I’m keeping the elephants away.


Psychiatrist: That’s ridiculous!!! There are no elephants around here.


Beatnik: Yes indeed. From your lips to God’s ears. It’s working very well, isn’t it.


Like dat.
