The American Political Circus

As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following status update here, posted by Voluntaryist, Larken Rose, and originally shared it to my own wall, along with commentary…

Larken Rose: When people believe the circus that is paraded in front of them, they are constantly complaining about how one PARTY, or one POLITICIAN, did something nasty, evil, etc. And as long as the puppeteers can keep people thinking that way–instead of seeing it as THE RULING CLASS doing evil crap–then people will keep focusing on handing the power to some OTHER party or politician. And when they get their way, they will then make excuses when their “own” politician or political party does evil crap.

The end result is that almost everyone in the country bitches about the evil crap done by the ruling class, while at the same time VOTING for it and making EXCUSES for it. Meanwhile, the ONE ruling class, with all of its puppets (“right” and “left”), is laughing at all the dumbasses who keep falling for the game.

If you are a Trump supporter today, you’re the exact same kind of pathetic dupe that was cheering for Obama back when he was the Puppet in Chief doing evil crap. And your excuses and attempted rationalizations don’t change the fact that YOU helped to further move authoritarianism along by cheering for yet another puppet. You can either continue with the delusions and psychological denial, pretending that Trump is gonna save us all, or you can stop being a total dumbass, acknowledge that he is just another puppet, and stop acting as a useful idiot for the most evil people on the planet. Your choice.

My Commentary: What up, marionette?

A Little Moral Consistency, Please?

Bush administration torture memo author, John Yoo

John Yoo Thinks Presidents Can Legally Torture Children. Even He Has “Grave Concerns” About Donald Trump:

(Jon SchwarzIN A NEW YORK TIMES op-ed today, John Yoo wrote the following words: “even I have grave concerns about Mr. Trump’s uses of presidential power.”

That should get your attention, since Yoo, a fancy law professor at Berkeley, is best known for authoring much of the legal advice claiming the U.S. could legally engage in torture when he served in George W. Bush’s Justice Department.

In fact, Yoo believed this so fervently that in 2005 he said that a president can torture children if necessary, and there’s nothing that Congress or international law can do to stop him.

My Commentary: For those of us logically-and-morally-consistent enough for unbiased, independent, critical thinking, this has been a severe problem, provoking vocal outrage and protest, from Bush, to Obama, and on to Trump. For the lemmings among us… “Go Team Red (or Blue)!” “The other guy did it, too (or first)!”

Yes… Rest assured that those innocent human beings indefinitely detained at Guantanamo Bay, for years, without a trial, or any legitimate proof of guilt, while being tortured, sexually-abused, force-fed, and even murdered, all in your name, and with your tax dollars, take solace in the merits of your stellar reasoning. They glady embrace their complete lack of due process, and are eternally grateful for the American brand of “justice” you defend (or accept)…

Killary’s Rotten Gaddafi Comments Turned Into a Song!

Inspired by a comment I published on my Facebook post, “Corrupt, Pro-War, Corporate Puppet, Hillary, Primary-Rigging DNC, Capitulating, Shilling Sanders, Democratic Voters, and Professionally-Lying Mainstream Media Monopoly Deserve Full Blame for Democratic Election Loss,” I decided that it was worthy of its very own share upon my wall…

Hillary Clinton is Evil (Remix):

My Commentary: Oh, snap! Killary’s “we came, we saw, he died” sound byte was turned into a song! This is just perfect!

Never Forget: Life After the Khmer Rouge Genocide:
http://www.gq.com/story/cambodia-khmer-rouge-michael-paterniti

() Once upon a time—1975, actually, in Cambodia—there was a regime so evil that it created an antisociety where torture was currency and music, books, and love were abolished. This regime ruled for four years and murdered nearly 2 million of its citizens, a quarter of the population. The perversion was so extreme, the acts so savage, that three decades later, the country still finds itself reeling.
