All other activities here have been suspended while I monitor the major terror attack happening in Mumbai, India.

Thanks to everyone on Twitter for sharing!

Twitter has been ahead of American TV from the start.

My sympathies to all the victims of this horrible attack.

I Vow You Bastards Will HANG!

New York pets hit by credit crunch

All you greedy sociopaths, I will witness your hangings.

All you bastard NYC landlords who disallow pets, the same goes for you.

Before we ever indulge in our self-destruction, I’ll make sure we purge ourselves of your kind!

Tempers flare at pumps; Easley says gas coming

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Lines crawled out into the streets leading up to the Exxon gas station on Pineville-Matthews Road on Thursday morning, as it was one of the few stations in Charlotte with fuel.

Exxon actually hired security guards to help with the lines.

Emphasis added by me.

And most importantly:

There were also reports of tempers flaring at the pumps. NewsChannel 36 reporters saw a fight break out at one station after someone cut in line.

Emphasis added by me.

These people are not hungry. They are not homeless. They don’t have the terror of where to find their next meal or where to sleep. They have money, they have jobs, they have homes, they have food, they have possessions that still have value.

Yet they cannot manage themselves in a reasonable manner during a time of temporary frustration.

And all of you laugh at my portrait of human behavior during a time of open-ended and nationwide frustration?

This post is a Sticky. It will remain here until the alleged bailout by Congress has been approved.

Update, Friday October 3, 2008:

For new posts, scroll down to the next one.

I’ve seen posts elsewhere by people stating they’d rather see the collapse of the entire economic system instead of having the current alleged bailout go through. They believe they could live through the consequences of that.

They are so wrong.

Get Depression 1.0 out of your head right now.

We are not that people. We are not that population.

A collapse on the scale we are in danger of right now is unprecedented in all of human history. There is absolutely nothing else to compare it to. This is a strange land we have never before visited.

I’m going to take you through a tour of this possible future. I intend to scare the living shit out of you in doing so. I do it not of out some perverse glee. I do it to try to wake all of you up to the very real and probable calamity ahead.

Woman Brutally Attacked by Gestapo Storm Troopers at DNC- Unedited Version

I’ll wait until your head is bashed in by an out-of-control over-steroided costumed muscleman.

Because it’s only then that you’ll understand the extent of the outrage being perpetrated against all of us.

Oh, and when your head is bashed in? I hope it’s done in the compleat Nazi way they’ve done other heads: blocking the view of all possible witnesses so no lawsuit can ever occur and no charges of brutality can ever be pressed.

Welcome to post-America America.

The Photos NYPD Tried To Stop

September 3, 2008

Photos taken Wednesday September 2, 2008 on Satan Island with the Philips crapcam:

See the tow truck on right?

Apparently this van came loose from it …

… and rolled alllll the way down the hill …

… until it met this car …

… and did all this damage.

Now when I took this final picture, you can see the cop coming into frame at right. He actually made body contact with me and told me to “Keep walking.” A real Nazi attitude. Let me repeat: He made physical contact with me. Assault.

There are many other ways he could have handled this. But he chose to be a Nazi. So instead of these photos being all private like, here they are.

NYPD, teach your troopers how to handle the law-abiding public.

This is still America.

And if none of you like that, get the fuck out of this country!

I hate Nazis!

Former police inspector arrested after confronting gang who threatened to kill him

A retired police officer, who bravely challenged yobs when a beer can was thrown at his car late at night, was horrified to be later arrested himself and thrown in a cell.

Former Inspector Paul Lawson, 52, intended to make a citizen’s arrest, but sensibly backed down when the youths surrounding him threatened to kill him and smash up his vehicle.

He reported the incident in Morpeth to two police officers on patrol in the area, but they refused to take action.

One of the gang later claimed to have been assaulted by Mr Lawson and this time Northumbria Police did intervene.

Really, it’s getting like Bizarro World over there.

Why aren’t the officers who refused to take action up on charges of dereliction of duty?

And this guy, he just begs to be fired:

Chief Inspector John Barnes, of the Northumbria Police, refused to comment on the incident, adding: ‘Anyone who feels unhappy with the way they have been treated by Northumbria Police can always make use of our official complaints procedure.’

Oh the saboteurs. The saboteurs are right in front of us.

Thomas Frank’s Indictment Of Conservatism

Hang around with grassroots conservative voters in Kansas, and in the main you will find them to be honest, hardworking people.

But put conservatism in charge of the state, and it behaves very differently. Now the “values” that rightist politicians eulogize on the stump disappear, and in their place we can discern an entirely different set of priorities—priorities that reveal more about the unchanging historical essence of American conservatism than do its fleeting campaigns against gay marriage or secular humanism. Conservative’s leaders laugh off the idea of the public interest as airy-fairy nonsense; they caution against bringing top-notch talent into government service; they declare war on public workers. They have made a cult of outsourcing and privatizing, they have wrecked established federal operations because they disagree with them, and they have deliberately piled up an Everest of debt in order to force the government into crisis. The ruination they have wrought has been thorough; it has been a professional job.

Emphasis added by me.

How much more evidence needs to be piled up?

The voters in this country are like the Germans who lived next to the death camps and claimed ignorance of what was happening behind the barbed wire and gun towers.

When it all falls — and it will, because it is inevitable, because they have sabotaged it to fall! — how many morons will go on killing sprees murdering the scapegoats they’ve been taught to blame over the past three decades?

While the saboteurs laugh behind their gates and Blackwater guards!

A Mission From God. Which God?!

Bush: God told me to invade Iraq

President George Bush has claimed he was told by God to invade Iraq and attack Osama bin Laden’s stronghold of Afghanistan as part of a divine mission to bring peace to the Middle East, security for Israel, and a state for the Palestinians.

The President made the assertion during his first meeting with Palestinian leaders in June 2003, according to a BBC series which will be broadcast this month.

The revelation comes after Mr Bush launched an impassioned attack yesterday in Washington on Islamic militants, likening their ideology to that of Communism, and accusing them of seeking to “enslave whole nations” and set up a radical Islamic empire “that spans from Spain to Indonesia”. In the programme Elusive Peace: Israel and the Arabs, which starts on Monday, the former Palestinian foreign minister Nabil Shaath says Mr Bush told him and Mahmoud Abbas, former prime minister and now Palestinian President: “I’m driven with a mission from God. God would tell me, ‘George, go and fight those terrorists in Afghanistan.’ And I did, and then God would tell me, ‘George go and end the tyranny in Iraq,’ and I did.”

And “now again”, Mr Bush is quoted as telling the two, “I feel God’s words coming to me: ‘Go get the Palestinians their state and get the Israelis their security, and get peace in the Middle East.’ And by God, I’m gonna do it.”

Emphasis added by me.

We have someone leading this country who thinks he is fulfilling Biblical prophecy!

I think if he was asked to swear on the Bible if he said this and admitted that he did, there would be grounds for removal from office due to insanity.

What the hell is the Congress waiting for? A sign from God?!

The Day Everything Changed Forever

May 7, 2008

I’ll let the Internet Archive speak for itself:

This collection contains television news programs recorded live from around September 11, 2001 by the non-profit Television Archive to help patrons research this important part of United States history. These materials were available on the site from October 11, 2001 through 2003.

These recordings are from ABC, BBC, CBS, CNN, Fox, and NBC.

Since it would have been impossible for me to see all three major TV networks simultaneously, I was curious about two things from that day:

1) What was airing when the first plane hit

2) What the initial reports looked like



Sarah Ferguson was discussing weight loss when the first plane hit.


Charlie Gibson and Diane Sawyer announced the news.

This was the first image from ABC:




Bryant Gumbel was discussing food when the first plane hit.

CBS went to a Special Report:



Bryant Gumbel reported the news.

This was the first image from CBS:



The network was in local commercial time when the first plane hit.

When the Today Show returned from another ad break later …


… Katie Couric and Matt Lauer reported the news.

This was the first image from NBC:


It never gets easier to look at.
