Amazing Pictures From A Year In The Life Of Barack Obama – Here Obama Prays with the “Circle of Protection Campaign” a group of religious leaders dedicated to preserving government protections for the poor. | Image: White House


Oh please. A group of multicolored, self-serving, constantly poor-washing trough feeders. If they care at all for the poor it is to rake off what benefits poor people can manage to accrue. And privatise as much as possible.  Ensure what used to be benefits assigned to individuals or families, instead, come directly to them.


Cons, would be a shorter description.

And Romney is no peach. I forget where now, but I read somewhere reliable he called the Elders of Zion (the Utah branch) to get permission to add to his big hulking failing health mess of a bill a tiny 50.00 payment toward abortion for the poorest in MA..

So, we get moaning and groaning and Jesus invoking proselytisers from the incumbant OR we get a hot phone on constant re-dial to the Mormon hierarchy before the other one does ANYTHING.

AND Wall Street with a hot poker up both of their rumps.  (Not that they mind!)

I think with either administration, the official WH “cheap gift” to no-account visitors one step up from a tour group should be red white and blue lube rather than specially boxed M & Ms.

I think with either administration, the official WH “cheap gift” to no-account visitors one step up from a tour group should be red white and blue lube rather than specially boxed M & Ms. – Mcat

With Neapolitan ice cream offered in a tricorn hat..
I envision a day when White House occupants = residents and “visitors” alike – could just be industrially conveyed right on thru the various lubrication,, topping, and accessory applications. Leg-breaking machine throughout the whole manufacture would necessarily handle the requisite bloody Gawdly genuflecting..

I still think we should be allowed to shoot them for free from like a viewing platform or something.. I mean you could regulate it, license and tax it as a revenue stream. 😉 😆
Maybe limit it to a seasonal thing.

that picture is something else … i bet jesus is rolling in his grave, lol. or maybe they’re praying to that picture above them (custer????)

marisacat - 1 January 2012

Maybe Jackson? Too thin for Teddy R? Do you think? Someone who relished riding (into war, would be my guess) They did not identify what room they meet in… so would be hard to find out for certain.

brian - 2 January 2012

looking closer, my guess would be teddy

marisacat - 2 January 2012

I think you are right… he probably was about that size in the Rough Rider era….

Here is a tidbit… I came upon it years ago, in the swell of some ‘gays in the mil’ debate in the country… Apparently when TR was charging up San Juan Hill (if I have that right?) one of the members of his cadre was a cross dresser. S/he would charge up the hill, charge into battle, in full female dress of the period. I think, but am not certain, that I got it from Gore Vidal.

3. ms_xeno - 1 January 2012

I need a god I can pray to for protection from the prayerful. :p

Madman in the Marketplace - 3 January 2012

I need a god who will punish the prayerful.

marisacat - 3 January 2012

That would work for me….

Hidden Agenda Behind “War on Terror”: The Conquest of Oil, Gas, Water and Vital Resources

by Pepe Escobar and Lars Schall


marisacat - 2 January 2012

oh thank you for that…

Bingo on this:

[S]o the Americans are saying: Okay, how do we re-organize the whole thing? The “War on Terror“ for all practical purposes is more or less over in the Pentagon way of seeing the world. Now it’s back to “Full Spectrum Dominance“ – we have to control the whole thing. So this means control of the Mediterranean Sea as a NATO lake, which was what they have implementated in Libya and now will try to implement in Syria; control the rest of Africa, sending troops to Uganda like Obama did a few weeks ago, which is not only Uganda but the heart of Central Africa, it’s Uganda, South Sudan, Central African Republic and Congo – lots of oil, lots of minerals, lots of rare earths as well, all extremely precious.

So the West has to be there and the U.S. has to be in control, forget about China. This means raving up AFRICOM, the African Command sitting in Stuttgart, Germany, and soon probably sitting in Benghazi, Libya.

I was talking to people from the European Union in Brussels a few days ago, some smart dissidents who don’t agree with what they are doing, and they told me off the record: Look, there is going to be a military base in Libya, this was the project right from the beginning.

There will not be a lot of European boots on the ground, it’s going to be Turkish, Qatari, UAE, those mercenaries that get trained by Blackwater – now Xe – in the United Arab Emirates, these people will be part of this base and it’s going to be the base that NATO and AFRICOM wanted in North African territory.

For me the number one answer to your question is this: the “War on Terror“ was a diversion that lasted more or less ten years. Now even the Pentagon, the CIA, the FBI, the National Security Agency, the Obama administration, everybody is saying out loud: “al-Qaeda is operationally ineffective” – these are their own words.

Virtually everybody is dead, apart from al-Zawahiri and the new guy that they have named to be their military commander, but I can’t even remember his name, they have a new one every week or so. Everybody is dead, they are not in Afghanistan anymore, they have a few trainers in the tribal areas in the Waziristans, they are ineffective in the rest of the world, though, of course, they are in power now in Tripoli because the West has used them. Those guys were trained in a military camp north of Kabul.

I was there in this place in early 2001, and I was told that they had a lot of Libyans there. And yes, these Libyans were the guys from the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, LIFG, and they were trained in this camp north of Kabul, it was very easy to go there. So now they are in Libya, the military commander of Tripoli, Abdelhakim Belhadj, with his cohorts, they are very well armed, very well trained, they will not go away, and these al-Qaeda-linked jihadis were used by the West with no second thoughts. . . . . .

Round and round we go… as long as the wars keep going, the arms dealers keep selling, all is fine and God is in his heaven.

marisacat - 2 January 2012

The stuff on Libya, Qatar and … Tehran is really fascinating…

He continues to dance around our involvement globally, everywhere we go, with refining and moving drugs. Be interesting to see how long he waits to come out for Slob. Which as much as he took the low path (near silence and support when he had to speak up) in 2008, I suspect he will again.

m - 3 January 2012

Drugs have replaced religion as the tool of conquest.

marisacat - 3 January 2012

oh that is a good way of putting it!

5. BooHooHooMan - 2 January 2012

And now to our War correspondents in Iowa –

Ed Schulz says Rick Santorum is headed in for the WIN. 😆
As does some hump he has on from the Des Moines Register.
Oh you know, Bullllllshit, but mildly entertaining.

Hmm. But the thing I found interesting is how they are talking now about Romney coming in THIRD.

Well, Good Luck to ALL of course, 😆 –
You know, Cheerio! Yip Yip and all that …

marisacat - 2 January 2012

Thankfully we will know soon enough.


BooHooHooMan - 3 January 2012

Methinks some expectations game memo went out,
Today, it’s Gene Robinson.

Santorum wins narrowly
By Eugene Robinson

It has me thinking, me, thinking, so, ya know, 😆 but this Santorum sod placements has the look, feel, and smell of Grade A-1 Primo Astrooooturf. LOL
Of the finest synthetic material available. .
It’s all such shit the whole thing.
Step right up..etc…

marisacat - 3 January 2012

Santorum is the stand-in for Palin, who, of course, they would luv to run against. They HAVE to rev up the Dem dumb clucks fears, somehow someway!

Personally Slob and Memsab scare me to death.

6. BooHooHooMan - 3 January 2012

Is this country great or what?
Winning hearts and minds everywhere!

Militant groups in Pakistan unite

Thank God for Obama, Hillary, and Panetta!
Brilliant! Way to go Team! Bush couldn’t do THAT!
What a Record!


marisacat - 3 January 2012

They should worry more (and I suspect they do) over the growing associations and interweave with China that Pakistan is speeding to solidify.

7. Madman in the Marketplace - 3 January 2012
marisacat - 3 January 2012

There should be more of it…. it happened out here, esp as notice of clsing 3-5 Oakland grammar schools came down this fall… and s o m e elements of the various teachers unions and groups did join with Occupy, as well as parents…

I hope it spreads…

Oh I agree… they put a tutu on Santorum and let him pirouette for a little while… it tamps down the loonatick evangels, they think they matter, more than just being a cog in the wheel of elections and exhorting… etc.

Then Santorum will be sent back to his abortion fields in PA.

11. BooHooHooMan - 3 January 2012

Newt shameless;y peddling his ass for Zionist money to liquidate Paul.

marisacat - 3 January 2012

Anything for a buck!!

12. ts - 3 January 2012

IOZ found this moving, and I agree. An erudite literary smackdown.


Well, each to his or her own tribalism, I suppose. It is pleasant to believe one’s society is more “enlightened” or “rational” than all others, and Pinker has every right to try to prove the point. He would be more convincing, though, if only the central claim of his book were not so entirely dependent upon a statistical fiction.

That is to say, yes, of course modern societies have reduced certain kinds of brutality, cruelty, and injustice. Modern technology makes it far easier to control crime. We have weapons both too terrifying to use in open combat and so precise that we can kill at great distances, without great armies, out of sight and mind. We have succeeded at reforming our own nations internally in ways that make them ever more comfortable, less threatening, and more complacent. Our prison system is barbaric, but not overtly sadistic, and our more draconian laws rarely inconvenience the affluent among us. We have learned to exploit the labor and resources of poorer peoples not by enslaving them, but merely by making them “beneficiaries” of globalization. The violence we commit is more hygienic, subtler, and less inconvenient than that committed by our forebears.

Even so, the numbers do not add up. Pinker’s method for assessing the relative ferocity of different centuries is to calculate the total of violent deaths not as an absolute quantity, but as a percentage of global population. But statistical comparisons like that are notoriously vacuous. Population sample sizes can vary by billions, but a single life remains a static sum, so the smaller the sample the larger the percentage each life represents. Obviously, though, a remote Inuit village of one hundred souls where someone gets killed in a fistfight is not twice as violent as a nation of 200 million that exterminates one million of its citizens. And even where the orders of magnitude are not quite so divergent, comparison on a global scale is useless, especially since over the past century modern medicine has reduced infant mortality and radically extended life spans nearly everywhere (meaning, for one thing, there are now far more persons too young or too old to fight). So Pinker’s assertion that a person would be thirty-five times more likely to be murdered in the Middle Ages than now is empirically meaningless.

In the end, what Pinker calls a “decline of violence” in modernity actually has been, in real body counts, a continual and extravagant increase in violence that has been outstripped by an even more exorbitant demographic explosion. Well, not to put too fine a point on it: So what? What on earth can he truly imagine that tells us about “progress” or “Enlightenment”—or about the past, the present, or the future? By all means, praise the modern world for what is good about it, but spare us the mythology.

marisacat - 3 January 2012

Pinker sounds like the people who tell us we don’t need this or that, but need that over there “because we are living longer now“. 😆 Only a few of us are.

Will Greece Leave the Euro?

One could hope, but…

Right from the start, this blog has taken the unpopular line that Greece would end up defaulting within the euro. This would be the worst possible outcome for Greece; it would also be pretty disastrous in terms of market confidence in the euro. But, to repeat, this was never about the economics. If it had been, we wouldn’t be in this mess.

marisacat - 4 January 2012

Euro Center seems to want to bash Greece. To death.

14. BooHooHooMan - 4 January 2012

😆 Catholic bishop of L.A.,with secret family, resigns

MAN! He must REALLY been into the Secret Santa thing!
Oh I see…. he was Auxilliary bishop. LOL.
With the ole auxilliary family, obviously.
But what do the kids say now?
May we still call you Father, Father?
Fuckin lunacy. EVERYWHERE. LOL.

marisacat - 4 January 2012

I saw too that some exalted bishop in Canada who admitted to an addiction to child porn (but would one merely be itinerant? Occasional? Wouldn’t that person BE addicted?) has been released from jail or probation or whatever. Hang him upside down! From Toe screws!!

It’s not going let up…. thanks for that, going to read.

Read it.. they had to struggle to get that arrest going. What a mess.

Madman in the Marketplace - 5 January 2012

these stories just make the city look like incompetent bullies …

marisacat - 5 January 2012

Since it was not the only stream of Occ events… I wonder. Sounds as tho it might be a very very efficient one tho. I have read that the Occ streaming, whoever did it, over usstream, actually had a higher viewership than many cable news shows…
