TBGO: Early Morning Bulletins, All Day

The Koch Club

The template for this kind of "oligarchic activism" is laid out to perfection in the "Powell Memorandum," an action plan for Conservaturd forces to "overwhelm" the radical egalitarianism of the 'counter-culture' of the '60s and '70s.
It was composed by (then corpoRat Atty, but soon to be SCROTE Justice) Lewis Powell.
To give you some flavor of the man, his relative and namesake was executed for his part in the Lincoln assassination in 1865.

atheists monument
Woody's making book on how long it will be before the "rationalist" monument is defiled or damaged.
"Less than a month" is my bet.
Btw: It's not a monument to "atheism." It is a monument to reason, reality, and rationality and sanity.
None of which are characteristics of "faith."

 Woody agreez: When yer "allies" are forced to acknowledge that YOU'RE spying on 'em, it's a little "Inconvenient." For EVERYBODY!
But not surprising. And not "novel."
Every "nation" in the world, to the extent that it can, conducts espionage on every OTHER "nation" in the world.
It would be stupid NOT to, not to mention a sign of incompetence/misfeasance.
Everybody in every govt. on the PLANET already KNEW the US was spying on 'em, just as WE knew they were spying on us.
Military, civilian, corpoRat "intel" is a--I'm tempted to say "the"--currency of international relations.
This is a ginned-up crisis, people. Get OVER it. It's been going on FOR EVER! You have to be terminally naive to believe otherwise, or to take such painful umbrage at the plain fact.

Woody truly pities them:
America's 'Christians": The world's first and ONLY "persecuted religious Majority."

It's not too great an exaggeration to say that Prescott Bush was the personal banker of the Bund.
"...(D)ocuments, many of which were only declassified last year, show that even after America had entered the war and when there was already significant information about the Nazis' plans and policies, he worked for and profited from companies closely involved with the very German businesses that financed Hitler's rise to power. It has also been suggested that the money he made from these dealings helped to establish the Bush family fortune and set up its political dynasty." --

Life begins with the breath of life. It shows up within about the first 500 words of the Bible.
Gen. 2:7: "Then the LORD God formed man of dust from the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being."
Pretty unambiguous.
Breathing is the key. Life begins with your first inhalation (says nothing about 'olding it, though).
Case closed.

Woody doesn't trust ANY PART of this whole NSA/"Snowden"/Greenwald narrative worth a runny shit.
It's all FAR too contrived. It's like some kind of "reality tv" show. I have said all along that I detect something like the cold, dead hand of Andrew Breitbart on the whole proceeding.
It seems to me a sign of either 1) desperation or 2) complicity that Greenwald would demean himself by an appearance on Faux Noiz.

Woody sez: Now THERE'S a monument to reason, rationality (rat-ionality?) and sanity I can support!

Woody'z all, like, what the FUCK?
Charter Schools --indeed, education in general, anymore--are a business, first, over and above ANYTHING else.
Schooling/education/pedagogy/learning: all are secondary to corpoRat "profit" points.
Whodafuck DIDN'T know that by now?
If this is news to ya, probly ya oughta turn in yer drivers' license cuz yer too fucking dumb to operate dangerous machinery.

What Woody wonderz is:
Just how long do the residents of these states--like Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, North (and South) Carolina, etc--where citizens' liberties and rights have been radically curtailed, think it will take to restore what they have lost?
I think the answer is: a fucking LIFETIME.
Rights/liberties, once shorn by the Masters, very SELDOM return; almost never in the form in which they were removed, and ALWAYS weaker...
And just how long will it be before the lowing cattle in the proletariat figure it out?

HEIGH-HO, Selenium!

Woody thinks the NPR question is idiotic.
The movie--the 'legend'--is entirely dependent on stereotypes.
Pretty much, that's all it COULD be.
Cuz for the record:
Historically, the Texas Rangers' primary responsibilities consisted almost entirely in killing "Indians" and Mexicans.
All that thwarting the "bad WHITE guy," and saving the ranch, chasing white rustlers, shit like that?
Mostly didn't happen.

Is His Relatively High Melanin Level Responsible For The Relatively Low Rate of Prez. LowBar's Congressional Success?
Oh, yeah, Woody sez: It DEFINITELY is.
Racial animus is not the ONLY factor, but a MAJOR one.
Accounting for probably half of his (and our national) difficulties. They may deny it, but the rhetoric of the Tea-baggers locates them squarely at the high (or low, depending) end in a continuum of racial antagonism against people of color. You saw it plainly in the ACA debate: Raw "racism" is on display when the more prosperous Majority is willing to--indeed, activates for--a deprivation of some smaller account if it prevents those whom the Majority despises from enjoying any benefit at all. It's textbook.
The only perceptible difference between this guy and the last five or six is the melanin content of the genome.
Anyone who doubts it should surrender their drivers' license and return any weapons they own, because they pose a serious, non-trivial danger to non-STOOOOOPIT people around them...
