Gaming the refs ...

The Rethugs know people are wise to them. What to do? Cheat:

The feds say there’s “ample circumstantial evidence” that the redistricting maps signed by Texas Gov. Rick Perry had the effect and intent of limiting the voting power of Hispanic voters. But what’s the evidence exactly? Let’s take a look.

To yesterday's post and Fixer's earlier one:

Business Insider (!!!)

Marines around the world are outraged by the injuries inflicted by police on Scott Olsen at Tuesday's Occupy Oakland protests. Olsen is in a medically-induced coma after getting hit in the head by a police projectile.

This man is not alone. In the five hours since the thread went up there have been over 600 comments.

Here's an email from the man in the picture.

Dear Mr. Johnson,

My name is Jay C Gentile, and I'm the man in the picture on BI's front page. I'm sure you're a busy man so I'll try to keep my words to a minimum. I was wondering if you, as a journalist, and with the resources at your disposal, could tell me a reliable place where I can find updates about Scott Olsen's condition. "Occupy Wallstreet" movement aside, Marines share a bond that escapes the boundaries of the English language. I'd like to be able to "check up" on this young man, my brother, and keep up with his condition.

Thank you very much,

Semper Fidelis
-Jay C. Gentile

No worries, young man. This is a big deal and you'll hear. It ain't going away no matter how much Oakland PD would like it to.

Note to OPD: Marines are always on duty protecting this country, even long after their active duty. You can't tell them from civilians until it's too late and then you will pay. Best not to unnecessarily fuck with citizens lest you fuck with a Marine by mistake.

And yes, every last Jarhead in the country is pissed off over this and rightly so. Somewhere in this land there's a 100-year-old Marine Mail Guard who tore his walker to shreds when he heard about this. He'll survey it for a new one and OPD better watch out.

NYPD really does that!


High-ranking NYPD inspector transferred to Staten Island command after 'Occupy Wall Street' pepper spray incident

There are lots of TV shows about New York cops. Whenever one of NY's finest fucks up on one of them, they get threatened with a transfer to Outer Mongolia Staten Island. It's really true! Heh.

There's another island that would have been better.

In yer dreams...

Headline at BuzzFlash:

Rick Perry May Dodge Future GOP Debates Because He Can't Debate His Way Out Of a Paper Sack. Romney May Follow Suit. Upside: No More GOP Debates.

Nice thought! Not a chance. The GOP would never pass up a chance to make average Americans miserable. It's what they do, it's who they are.

Why the SEC Won’t Hunt Big Dogs

I knew the answer when I saw the headline: because Big Dogs bite. Hard.

Pro Publica

This is a matter of will and leadership. Its chairwoman, Mary L. Schapiro, while deserving credit for pushing investigations of structured investments, is sending the signal that she does not want to lose. Her agency is meekly willing to get token settlements when the situation calls for Old Testament justice.

Someday, the S.E.C. will have to go up against a top executive who has resources to fight, and who was too sophisticated to put anything rash in writing. This seems to be our fate: our bankers took reckless risks, but our regulators take none.

As any old streetfighter can tell you, you gotta bring some to get some. Seems like the SEC ain't got none.

Note to Hermie

Herman Cain Denies That Palestinian People Exist

Dude, it's obvious that you're doubling down on the crazy to try to get out of this mess you created and then stepped in deeper than you could have ever imagined, but on the surface you're going about it the wrong way. The whackos in the Dead End Quarter fuckin' love it! You underestimated their stupidity, didn't you? Screwed yerself good! Heh. If you want to get out now you need to say something sane.

You damn near did it with your first stance on abortion which I understood perfectly - you are personally against it but it's a woman's right to choose - but then you muddied it all up. That might yet work, though.

Then there's your TV ad. Brilliant on all counts! That was the absolutely creepiest thing I've seen! Your little death-grin at the end is a masterpiece! Plus, it's comedy gold and so will be seen by many, many normal voters.

You can't just drop out because you don't want to be seen as a quitter.

It has become obvious to me that you are really a far-thinking man. You're a big favorite amongst the idiots who vote in Repug primaries and the writing on the wall, misspelled as it is, says you might just win the primary and the nomination even though the Repug power people have already chosen Willard, but that might fall through.

You, like Willard, are already running for the general election. You know the relatively sane American voters will never, ever, make a know-nothing egocentric arrogant SOB like you President. Not again. We remember the Chimp.

Sleep well, my brother. We'll fix this mess for you. You will get your 11th-hour reprieve from a job you don't want and aren't qualified for on election day if it comes to that.

And what flavor ...

Would that be?

Wah-wah-wah ...

Oh noez, they can't cut stuff we want!!!!1!!!eleventy!

Happy Birthday!

The second most beautiful New Yorker is celebrating a birthday today.

The New Colossus

Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
"Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she
With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

Emma Lazarus, 1883

Happy 125th, baby! Still looking good.

Our Eventual Dance Partners

This is a follow-up to yesterday's post. As I was going to get my mail I noticed this lovely papier-mâché (literally, "chewed paper". Yuck.) sculpture in front of the Art Junkie across the street from the Post Office. Today I took my camera.

The sculpture depicts La Catrina (The Elegant Lady) and her male counterpart El Catrin (The Dandy) flanking a Sacred Heart of Jesus in anticipation of Dia de los Muertos.

The thing damn near but doesn't quite block the sidewalk. I will assume they take it in at night. Several people, tourists probably, stopped to look at it during the five minutes I was there.

Click to embiggen

Below is our horny sculptress Ursula working on another Sacred Heart in honor of her grandparents. This is just off our town's main intersection which you can see in the background.

She told me that our local school board put the kibosh on any Dia de los Muertos references in our schools (which have a large Latino enrollment) because they don't think death should be glorified.


Somebody should tell those Anglo idiots that the Meskins don't glorify death, they accept it as part of life and like to celebrate the day with their ancestors. Family time, like in "Hey! Let's put out some goat tacos for Tio Pepito! He's been gone a long time and would probly like one!".

To be fair, I hear some school districts are doing the same thing with Halloween because it offends some fundies. I couldn't care less what fundies think but they're on a lot of school boards, to the detriment of schools and kids learning actual stuff.

BTW, I normally don't get carried away with skull/skeleton/death symbolism and can't stand the way they're normally presented by bikers and phony militarists who use 'em to try and scare people into thinking they're badasses cheating death. You can't cheat death, it wins every time. I did like Ghost Rider though. Heh.

For a coupla days a year, though, I dig the shit out of the Mexican use of the symbols. Makes a helluva lot more sense than Halloween if you ask me.

Inspector: $6.6 billion allegedly stolen in Iraq has been found

Raw Story

While it was thought to have gone missing, an earlier SIGIR report said the funds were not accounted for due to the “weaknesses” of the Pentagon’s management and control mechanisms for their oversight.

Turns out, SIGIR now says the funds were actually being held by the Central Bank of Iraq, where they belonged.

Yeah, uh-huh, and I got this lovely bridge across the East River for ya cheap...

Officials in the Bush administration had hoped the massive pallets of cash would help calm Iraq’s civilian population following the chaotic and violent invasion and toppling of Saddam.

Rumor has it, and I know because I'm starting it, that they're gonna pallet the moolah back up and drop it on Zucotti Park to try and calm America's civilian population. I like the idea - that much cash'll get the Wall St. types outta their ivory towers - greed trumps common sense - and the protesters can get their hands on 'em. Heh.

Investigators said in 2005 that Bush officials apparently neglected to put procedures in place to track the money or hold recipients accountable for its proper applications.

Those fuckers weren't smart enough to throw a beer bash in a brewery. Sure fucked this country up though.

What it's become ...

Dr. Krugman, short and sweet:


Many members of the commentariat don’t want to face up to the fact that this is what American politics has become; they cling to the notion that there are gentlemanly elder statesmen on the right who would come to the fore if only Obama said the right words. But the fact is that nobody on that side of the political spectrum wants to or can make deals with the Islamic atheist anti-military warmonger in the White House.


The Tally ...

From the war in Iraq:


8 years, 260 days since Secretary of State Colin Powell presented evidence of Saddam Hussein’s biological weapons program

8 years, 215 days since the March 20, 2003 invasion of Iraq

8 years, 175 days since President George W. Bush’s “Mission Accomplished” speech on the USS Abraham Lincoln

4,479 U.S. military fatalities

30,182 U.S. military injuries

468 contractor fatalities

103,142 – 112,708 documented civilian deaths

2.8 million internally displaced Iraqis

$806 billion in federal funding for the Iraq War through FY2011

$3 – $5 trillion in total economic cost to the United States of the Iraq war according to economist Joseph E. Stiglitz and Linda J. Blimes

$60 billion in U.S. expenditures lost to waste and fraud in Iraq and Afghanistan since 2001

0 weapons of mass destruction found in Iraq

Thanks to TGUAR for the link.

If you're making ...

$174,000/year and claim you're struggling, you're doing something very wrong, or you're lying:

The House Majority PAC — a fundraising machine charged with boosting Democratic numbers in Congress — is pushing polling today suggesting saying you struggle on the $174,000 taxpayers pay you for being in the House isn’t exactly the right move if you want to keep your job.


The polling comes from this greedy, deluded asshole bitching about his congressional salary:


At a town hall meeting in Polk County, Wisconsin earlier this year, Rep. Sean Duffy (R-WI) was asked whether he’d vote to cut his $174,000 annual salary. Duffy sort of hedged, and went on to talk about how $174,000 really isn’t that much for his family of seven to live on. Then he went on to say he supports cutting compensation for all public employees, along the lines of what Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) has proposed for the Badger State.


I got news for this clown. I got neighbors who, combined, make less than $40K/year and manage to support their families. That's struggling. They manage to feed and clothe their kids, pay the rent, and keep the car running so they can get to their 2 or 3 shit jobs at WalMart or Home Depot, or any other place that exploits them.

I'm sick of these overpaid assholes screaming about how "we have to tighten our belts" and "cut government spending" yet not a one of them has volunteered to give back any of their wages or benefits (taxpayer funded, I might add), that they all demand the rest of us should give up, in support of the cause.

Fuck them. Fuck them all.

¡Viva La Catrina!

With my favorite holiday Dia de los Muertos about to kick off the holiday season, I think this is most appropriate. By the way, if you decorate your house to the nines with a DdlM theme, mostly grinning Mexican-looking skulls and skeletons, it keeps the trick-or-treaters away. Ya gotta take it all down pretty quick or the Meskin kids'll show up the next day.


"Catrina has come to symbolize not only El Día de los Muertos and the Mexican willingness to laugh at death itself, but originally catrina was an elegant or well-dressed woman, so it refers to rich people," de la Torre said. "Death brings this neutralizing force; everyone is equal in the end. Sometimes people have to be reminded." (my em)

A word to the wise. Like that'll help:

Concentration of fantastic wealth in the hands of the privileged few brewed discontent in the hearts of the suffering many, leading to the 1910 rebellion that toppled Diaz in 1911 and became the Mexican Revolution.

How d'ya say "BOHICA" in Spanish? Heh. OWS, anyone?

I've often wondered why people do the terrible things to other people they have to do to gain wealth and power. Perhaps they need to be reminded once in a while that they're just going to end up dead like everyone else and none of it will matter.

You have to make a living of course, and it's nice to get ahead, but the earthly plane doesn't last all that long compared to eternity. I just like to have fun and, spiritually, work on my karma in case it matters later.

Montford Point Marines

Thanks to The Montford Point Marine Museum.


Also watch this video.

Congress does something right for a change.


The House on Tuesday approved awarding the congressional gold medal to the first black Marines for their service during World War II in the face of discrimination.

They're known as the Montford Point Marines after the segregated North Carolina camp where they underwent training. That training began after President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1941 signed an executive order opening the Marine Corps to African Americans.

Marine Commandant Gen. James Amos expressed his support for the medal, saying in a letter to lawmakers that the Montford Point Marines "served with distinction in three of the bloodiest battles in the Pacific -- Saipan, Iwo Jima, and Okinawa," "defended a society that enjoyed freedoms they did not share" and "contributed, in large measure, to President Truman's decision to order the desegregation of the Armed Forces in 1948.''

The resolution was approved, 422-0, with four Montford Point Marines in the gallery for the vote.

Rep. Corrine Brown (D-Fla.), the bill's chief sponsor, called it a "long overdue'' recognition.

Similar legislation is pending in the Senate, where it has bipartisan support. About 20,000 African American Marines received training at Montford Point between 1942 and 1949.

Other recipients of the congressional gold medal, the nation's highest civilian honor, include the Tuskegee Airmen, Japanese American World War II veterans, Rosa Parks, the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and Walt Disney.

Walt Disney? I didn't know he was discriminated against or locked up in a concentration camp! Live and learn...

Semper Fi to The Montford Point Marines, my ebony-hued older brethren. At least you got this belated recognition before you were all gone. Pretty fast for Congress.

The Colbert BDump

Colbert's take on Cain's video. Funny.

Notable lines:

"...America's never seen a candidate like Herman Cain."

True enough. Not without a wagonload of snake oil plainly visible we haven't.

“Well, Hermie, I’m flattered,” Colbert said. “Because clearly Cain is basing a lot of his campaign on my book, in that his campaign is mostly about selling his book.”

Also, the rictus that passes for Hermie's smile creeps me out. Shudder.

Magical seashells of fun and horror

If it's Wednesday it's Morford on a philosophical bent.

So here is my humble advice in this nautilus-deprived world: Do not be one of those people. Do not succumb to the boring hellpit of teeming misery. It's just too easy. Care deeply, love messily, handle your own karma like an awestruck child handles a pile of wet clay. As the mystics remind us again and again, it's the only thing that ever seems to work.

Okay then.

Sanction torture, get a free lawyer


U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Jay S. Bybee accepted more than $3.2 million in free legal services from a Los Angeles-based firm to fight allegations of ethics violations for providing the Bush administration legal justification to use harsh interrogation tactics that critics called torture, his financial disclosure reports reveal.

Bybee was named to the powerful Western appeals court by President George W. Bush two years after he wrote legal memos condoning waterboarding and other harsh interrogation tactics in his role as head of the Justice Department's Office of Legal Counsel. Since his legal guidance on "enhanced interrogation" was disclosed three years ago, Bybee has weathered protesters accusing him of war crimes and has defeated calls for prosecution and threatened disciplinary sanctions.

The Chimp put him on the "notoriously" correct-thinking 9th Circuit to try and right-wing it up a little.

In my heart I know the 4th largest law firm in the world isn't giving $3.2 mil to anybody. They're billing someone and I'd like to know who it is. Cheney maybe. If any one of the bastards who says torture is OK goes down for it, they all do.

Hoping people will forget about it by then...

Pat Robertson: GOP Base Is Becoming Too Extreme

Mediaite, with video if you can stand it.

Those people in the Republican primary have got to lay off of this stuff. They’re forcing their leaders, the front runners, into positions that will mean they lose the general election. Now whether this did it to Cain, I don’t know, but nevertheless, you know, you appeal to the narrow base and they’ll applaud the daylights out of what you’re saying, and then you hit the general election and they say “no way” and then the Democrat, whoever it is, is going to just play these statements to the hilt. They’ve got to stop this! It’s just so counterproductive!

Well. If they want to lose, this is the game for losers.

It's not that they're too extreme. I'm sure the old fool believes all that shit, but in a rare moment of lucidity he realizes they will lose because of it.

Note to Pat: They're all lying anyway. If there were enough of your sheeple to vote 'em in, they'd just shit on 'em like they've always done and work for Big Biz like they're paid to do.

And some cops ...

Are getting it:

ALBANY -- In a tense battle of wills, state troopers and Albany police held off making arrests of dozens of protesters near the Capitol over the weekend even as Albany's mayor, under pressure from Gov. Andrew Cuomo's administration, had urged his police chief to enforce a city curfew.


Royal Governor Il Cuomo II doesn't like it when the riff-raff shows up at his front door. He's fine with letting the little troll Mayor Bloomberg deal with it in NYC but when it migrates a couple hundred miles north, it becomes a problem. The real problem is, Il Cuomo is just as beholden to Wall Street as the Republicans are.

Great thanks to our pal Lambert for the link.

To get yer ass blown away. Go ahead and try to enter my house without a warrant:

The Tennessee chapter of the ACLU is suing Immigration and Customs Enforcement over an alleged warrantless raid on an apartment complex housing people suspected of being illegal immigrants, during which an officer reportedly said “we don’t need a warrant, we’re ICE.”


I'll rephrase: "If you don't have a warrant, you're dead."

Just another example of police bullying people who can't fight back. Just like pepper-spraying women and beating on kids down on Wall St. You didn't see 'em fucking with any of the vets down there didja? Of course not because they'd have their nightsticks shoved up their ass and be eating their meals through a straw.

Time to take the heavy weaponry and body armor away from the cops. Let them feel a little vulnerable and maybe their methods might improve.

Noel Gallagher, one-half of the warring brothers who led the rock band Oasis to chart glory, was named a Q icon. But he said that award did not come close to rivaling his joy when his favorite soccer team, Manchester City, smashed crosstown rival Manchester United 6-1 on Sunday.

Lifting the Hood Off Rick Perry: Was His Family In The Ku Klux Klan?

"No jobs for anyone until Obama's gone!"

From a 'must read' by William Rivers Pitt:

"Despicable" is not a muscular enough word to describe this sad catastrophe of a document. Leaving aside all the gibberish about global socialist conspiracies and Obama's dictatorial tyranny - truly, all that is simply too stupid to reckon with - what we have here is a far-right activist group demanding that millions of unemployed people be denied gainful employment for no other reason than the Tea Party does not like the president.

No jobs for anyone until Obama is gone. Got it? The suffering being endured by so many Americans in the aftermath of the very economic policies championed in this declaration have no bearing on the present. Screw you, screw me, screw everyone, until these people have their way. If even one person in America heeds this call and refuses to hire anyone in need of a job, that will be a disaster of enormous proportions, for it will stand as the clearest indication yet that we are not our brother's keeper, that we are a cruel and selfish people, that we are hopeless possibly beyond all redemption.

This declaration is fishwrap, and I devoutly hope it is treated as such by anyone unfortunate enough to be confronted with it. It is the strongest signal yet that people like this Melissa Brookstone and her Tea Party friends - indeed, anyone who thinks the above declaration is a good idea - must be kept as far out of political power as can be managed within the boundaries of the law.

The Teabaggers are deluded to the point that they actually think everybody agrees with them. I'm glad this 'bagette actually went public with this, which McConnell and other Repugs in Congress subscribe to but wouldn't dare say out loud..

Oh. the irony...

"Beyond redemption ..."

Benen quotes former Ambassador to the UN John Danforth:


"If Dick Lugar," Danforth said, "having served five terms in the U.S. Senate and being the most respected person in the Senate and the leading authority on foreign policy, is seriously challenged by anybody in the Republican Party, we have gone so far overboard that we are beyond redemption."


Steve goes on to say that the Rethugs are throwing Lugar under the bus in favor of a tea bag right wing nutjob.

I tell ya, one of the best things the Occupy movement is doing is getting a lot of people to 're-look' at their political choices. I know a few right-leaning independents (people who voted for the Chimp twice but think the Teabaggers are nuts) who say that the Rethugs have finally gone over the edge and there's no way they're gonna vote for 'em. They've been looking at the local news (the Occupy Wall St. folks are on every night because whatever they do affects traffic here) and they're hearing what these folks are saying and they see themselves but for one medical emergency or the loss of their job.

Like I said, anecdotal, but I have a pretty good felling the fence-sitters are waking up.

Wearing My Debate Fatigues

Will Durst with a funny and long (for him, not for you) take on the retarded panderfest called the GOP "debates".

Time to sound the alarm on an ominous political epidemic sweeping the nation today. A feverish America finds itself larynx deep in the throes of a severe case of debate fatigue. As evidenced by the most recent gathering of GOP candidates in Nevada, which by any unofficial tally should count as the 367th debate in the past four months with about 519 to go before an actual nominee is grudgingly settled upon.

[...] Mirroring the emotions of their constituents, the candidates are starting to get on each other’s nerves like somebody else’s disco music pinning the red in a bathroom with stainless steel walls.

I have torn bathrooms apart with my bare hands for less...

...and Newt Gingrich may have scuttled his entire campaign by vowing, as nominee, to engage President Obama in a series of seven three- hour long debates. Smooth move. Like telling a man with heartburn you plan on serving nothing but jalapeno burritos for dinner the next two weeks. And the sour cream has curdled. Plenty of Tabasco, though.

Ah, such a 'morning after' should only be Neutie's...

Luckily for everybody, the next debate is more than three weeks hence. Plenty of time to grab some air and arrange a few photo- ops in stately poses such as handing out Halloween candy and voting. Not forgetting the most important presidential business of all, begging for more money. Power ties off. Knee pads on.

Plenty more. Enjoy.
