Gullible Travels

Posted by Mickey Z on 05/03 at 04:49 AM
  1. The headlines state, ‘the world is a safer place’..., except if you’re poor, a minority member, a women, a child, a teenager, a worker, a senior citizen, a thinker, still have blood flowing through your veins and live on planet earth, for there is still plenty of bombing to do, profits to make, lies to speak.

    Just think if this crap lingers until memorial day, fourth of july. This will be the summer in hell. Senator Susan Collins, who is evidence that even a dead frog can be a politician, stated, ‘we still have reason to be fearful and must be on our watch’. I guess this another tip, we will continue bombing the hell out of the planet with as many different lies as there are bombs. As long as there something to cheer, since, I think sports are losing their excitement.

  2. The froth of nationalism can’t divert the tide of collapse. (Captcha finally misses with ‘maybe’)

    Posting on various news sites is bleak, with responses ranging from “Don’t be such a communist loser” to “Our murderous policy protects even those who don’t want blood on their hands.”

    It didn’t take a single day for the G to deny withdrawing troops from anywhere. Someone should round up the streetcorner cheering sections and put them on a transport to Kandahar. Especially the frat boys - it’s never too soon to prevent another president.

    $3 trillion Q: does this mean a name has finally been taken off the Eye of Sauron Watch List?

  3. Hi Mickey, Joe, Zen, and all…

    Today is my mother’s 100th birthday. Unfortunately she only made it to 97.

    About Bin Laden...think about how many laws were broken to bring one man down and think about his ‘crime’. He spoke out against the USA slaughter of 500,000 Iraqi children. I remember the tape Bin Laden made (For those here, the one book Bin Laden mentioned was our friend, Bill Blum’s. That endorsement got Bill an appearance on a few TV programs.) The US policy of assassination is a crime. The torture that supposedly led to his location is a crime. The violation of the sovereignty of Pakistan is a crime...on and on.  Anybody wonder why Bin Laden was not arrested and put on Trial. The answer is obvious. The USA crimes would make anything Bin Laden did pale by comparison. So much for the Rule of law.

  4. Has the question come up about the stories stating Bin Laden died in 2000 or before?

    I read this twice, last time around 2006. I certainly won’t believe any ‘head-lines’.

  5. Joe, I’d take that as evidence of people willing to believe anything as long as its not from the government. Can’t blame them, but its poor logic.

    RMJ: Democracy Now covered this minor development - “Murderer kills murderer.”

    I work in /the village shop, and get a good look at the papers whether I want to or not. The right wing press say he was killed ‘resisting’. The right wing press say he died ‘cowering’. I wish to master the art of simultaneously resisting and cowering; a part of my masterplan to become lord of the absurd. ("A-ha! Your Tiger Claw style is no match for my Cowering Mouse!")

    This from Salon; the whole ‘human shield’ story stank to high heaven anyway - such an obvious part of The Narrative of the cowardly oriental terrorist. I’m literally stunned with boredom that it turns out to be bullshit.

  6. LA Times on OBL’s last moments:

    A surrender was possible only if the assault force could be sure the terrorist leader didn’t have a bomb hidden under his clothing, officials say in a new account of the raid.

    ....because people generally spend time at home wearing suicide vests???

  7. I wonder if they buried his suicide vest at sea, too.

    P.S. Thinking of you and yours, RMJ.

  8. Ooo, I need political advice!!! We have elections tomorrow. I have the choice between the Conservative Party, candidate or the Liberal Democrat party candidate. We have a coalition Conservative-Liberal Democrat Government.

    The Liberal Democrat Deputy PM said to the Conservative PM (just after a joint interview) “We need to find somethnig to disagree about, we just keep agreeing on everything” [roughly word for word if memory serves]..he didn’t realise a camera crew was close by.

    This kind of Democracy brings a tear to my eye.

    captcha is on form: ill.

  9. All the headlines I’m seeing are still based upon the assumption the obl story is true, that he was found still alive somewhere on this planet.

    There are so many events that the everyday joe, like myself, can’t prove or disprove. Since this information came from the degenerates in d.c., I will assume it is bullshit and feel no obligation to disprove their bullshit. If their story is not bullshit..., so what!

    1600-2011, murder, poverty, slavery, imposition of hypocritical religions, more wars, more murder, inequality, discrimination, hatred, destruction of natural resources and life support systems, all of this insanity simply repeats itself and had nothing to do with someone living elsewhere in bogeyman land.

    Now what, the slaughter of millions of people, and life support systems on other countries are ‘worth it’, are destroyed and some stupid quiz show host announces to the nation, we got him.

    Once again the suffering of other people everywhere is displaced while everyone jumps on this ‘story’.

    The wire above the playpen, with all those colorful spinning toys. Spin the blue one, watch his eyes as the cute bird spins round and round. Now, spin the yellow one, see how easily he forgets the blue one. Now, spin all of them, see how he becomes uncertain, he can’t focus.

    All those memories and since politicians can’t think, they resort to their shallow memories, resort to past ideas, that were never good ideas, repeat, regress into the stone ages, applaud the idea. Reader misinterprets what a great teacher meant by ‘intentional suffering’ and feels what politics has imposed should be accepted. Intentional suffering meant, the individual must look at himself and make effort to transcend who they are and become who they really are. The self-observer won’t like what he sees, what he has allowed himself to become, if he makes effort as opposed to marching in place in quick sand.

  10. Excellent post, Mickey - and excellent comments from Joe of Maine, Rosemarie, Zen Prole, Mew, subgenius and Rick.  Of course the world has not become a safer place, is all I want to say today!

    Best wishes to all of you,

  11. Good information about gullible travels

  12. now if someone could only find Dick Cheney…

    what if there was a way to measure how many deaths an individual has caused?  Obombya is bad enough, but people like Dick Cheney, that were in influencial positions in government for decades...making deadly decision after deadly decision… If it were possible to measure, that would create my Ten Most Wanted list.

  13. Joe #9, “murder, poverty, slavery, imposition of hypocritical religions, more wars, more murder, inequality, discrimination, hatred, destruction of natural resources and life support systems”...perhaps the other planets in our solar system aren’t inhabited because nobody wants to be near us!

  14. Rick 13, I don’t know if anyone lives on other planets.

    I don’t like living with us.

  15. Hello everyone and it’s always good to “see” JOS. I’m sorry if this blog was down for a bit. Not sure why.

    Anyway, a new post will be up soon.
