I've wondered about that ...

Many times. How people can make that leap, how they can put their morality aside in favor of ideology or money or both. Aside from the BP shills who are obviously paid to support the company line, there are those who find a bright spot in all this, even the worst case scenario.

Athenae goes off while sitting in for Tbogg:


WHAT THE FUCK IS THAT? I mean it, what is that, you fucking moral dyslexic? You’re basically cheering on the possible implosion of an entire ocean because it will remedy "infantile optimism" of "post-JFK America?" What the fuck does that even mean? I just … I’m … What in the blue hell has to happen inside your brain that makes writing that okay?

What kind of insulated, sheltered, non-reality reality do you have to be swimming around in that you can sit there and say that the killing of an ENTIRE OCEAN and the destruction of an ENTIRE THIRD OF THE DAMN COUNTRY’S ECONOMY would be okay because hey, then everybody will realize that Nixon was right and fuck Cambodia anyway and hippies smell?


I believe that to be a conservative, not just an uninformed, FOX "news"-watching prole but part of the Machine, you have to abdicate any right you have to a soul.
