IT'S MAGIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh Shit!!! You're all wondering!!!! Two posts in a month!!!! Must be something alarming!!! Well it is! In fact it's something so alarming that even a jaded and disgusted follower of the Bush Administration such as myself was flabergasted by it!!!

Now! Let's take a look at all the important issues that need addressing in America today:

First and foremost is the War in Iraq, which has turned into a huge boondogle of epic proportions! WE listened to President Pork Pies lies, and WE bought his line of shit hook, line, and sinker! The result is one royal fuck up! We've lost any credabillity we ever had internationally, and evry day finds us deeper and deeper in a quagmire we may never get out of! All because The Great Shrub and his "Coalition of the Drilling" had a hard-on for Suddam Husein that you could hunt with! What do we have to show for it? Hundreds of thousands of Iraqis, and nearly 3000 of our troops lay dead! Tens of thousands of our young soldiers are Physically, mentaly, and emotionaly scarred for life for the glory of Haliburton, and the magisty of Exon Mobile! Unfortunatly, WE are going to have to bring closure to this debacle, and WE are paying for it!

This brings us to issue number two: The ridiculously rising price of motor fuel in America has hard working people suffering and oil companies showing obcenely HUGE profits! All the while smuggly sitting on their golden thrones telling us all to get over it! Of course, fat profits mean fat donations to Republican coffers for Bush and Company, assuring any meningful legislation concerning energy will get shot down in flames!

Speaking of those Republican coffers, Let's discuss the third issue: Members of the Republican lead Senate and House of Representatives are lined up drooling at the trough for sweet deals and soft money form the K Street Consortium! So many "Quid pro quote" deals are handed out to, and from fat cat lobbysts, that it hardly gets reported as news any more! One reason for this is because the media is firmly in the hands of Big Business and has a vested interest in keeping these deals quiet! Sleasy below the board deals, fat no bid contracts for multinational companies that prominent figures in government just happen to own huge blocks of stocks in, and shady shenanigans of all sorts are comitted openly and arogantly by lawmakers who think that We the People are all idiots! It's government "For the money, of the money, and by the money!" and nobody seems to get it!

This brings us to the fourthn issue: The economy! I hate to tell youn this, but the Economy of The United States is in DEEP SHIT!!!!! The G4 index isn't even posted any more, and the US Mint has printing presses running night and day, churning out trillions of dollars to prop up President Pork Pie's house of smoke and mirrors! The figures on Wall Street are nothing more than blatant lies and wishfull thinking! The whole nasty mess ids going to go into a death spiral that will make the Crash of '29 look like a minor inconvenience! I'm talking about the Enron incedent happening 75% of publicly traded companies across the board! Got stocks and bonds? SELL THEM NOW!!!!! BUY GOLD NOW!!!! Look at the price of gold! That's the surest economic test there is! The price of gold has skyrocketted against the dollar! It's the only currency that will have any value at all in America within a few years if we keep going like we're going now! In fact it may already be too late! Want t0o see where we're heading? Look at the USSR in the '90s! That;'s what happens when you fight a war you can't win with money you don't have!

On monday June 5 2006 The united States Senate, lead by The Republican Party began a session in an election year. Of all these pressing issues which could destroy this country what do yow thinkm they chose as their primary agenda for this session? A devisive gay marrige ammenment that had not a snowball's chance of Hell in passing comitee, much less making it onto the Senate floor for a real vote! In fact It couldn't even pass muster to even be debated! Even the pundits had to admit that it was all just slight if hand! A nice little piece of misdirection while the rabbit was placed in the hat! A little bait and switch to push the real issues real Americans are facing every day behind the velvet curtain, allowing the Great Magician and his attendants made their grand exit, while the theater burns down around the audiences ears! So enraged by the devicive drivel presented by President Pork Pie, and awed were they by the rich spectacle of TomKat Cruise, Angelina's baby, and American Idol, that they never smelled the smoke or saw the flames untill it was too late!

Don't think it can happen here? Well guess what! It happened in Egypt! It happened in Britain! It happened in Persia! It happened in The USSR! And it's happening here! Read your history!

Stoney,

One of your best posts my man. It is so true that the people of this country are having their attention directed away from the real issues, the real problems, the stuff that is going to have a really big impact on people. But that is how history reads. So sad. By the time that most of the people realize that something is really really very bad wrong, it will be too late to do anything about it. Shit, it's been too late for 30 years now.

If you can find it, take a look at Betty Bowers review of Ann Coulter's new book. It is beautiful.

Right on, Stoney!! The unnerving thing about comparing the collapse of the Soviet Union and it's effects on the people there with our compatriots, is that in the USSR, the people were living in state-owned housing and were not thrown out when they had no money for rent. Over here, when the house of cards falls, people are laid off, gas is $5 a gallon, a loaf of bread costs $5, and people can't pay either their house payments or their rent, one of the only segments of the populace working steady will be those serving eviction notices. Maybe people will be able to live in the parking lots of the empty Walmart stores when the goods disappear because the price of oil has gone so high that it makes importing them too expensive and nobody has any money to buy them anyway. All those second home McMansions would make good communes if bands of armed homeless people decide to commandeer them. Maybe all those Mexican housekeepers and landscapers will take pity on their anglo former employers and teach them how to grow some fucking food.
Personally, I'd like to see Tom DeLay, Rumsfeld, and Karl Rove as valets carrying the bags of the Chinese tourists here to scout out potential investment properties, but those assholes probably have it all covered with some compound on a beach in the Bahamas or something.
For those who can't afford gold as a hedge on inflation, perhaps simpler items of trade, like cans of coffee, bags of sugar, tampons, diapers, cigarettes, or other commodities that will be scarce due to the shipping problems could be stockpiled and used for barter.
Hold on tight, it's going to be a wild ride! Maybe we'll have a circle of travel trailers, like the old wagon trains, and sit around a campfire at night and pass a bowl around and tell new stories of how it's gonna be. That would be kinda neat...till the "rustlers" showed up.

Murph,

Thanks! I appreciate it!

I certainly will check out Mrs. Betty Bower's review! And let me say that the intrepid Ms. Bowers, by her very reading of that foul missive has proven herself to be a lady of incredible intestinal fortitude, and an unusually strong stomach! It was all I could do to keep my breakfast down at the very sight of Ann Coulter's picture on the jacket! To actually open the book and read the fruit of Ms. Coulter's poison pen would be more venom than my dangerously stressed mind could take!

I did, however, write my own feelings about this book, gleaned from the snippets of information flyting fast and furious concerning this losely-called book! It is in the tardy hands of Blogspot now, and will be posted here as soon as Blogspot discovers it's existance. (Whenever that is!) It took them nearly a week to discover "Wierd Shit, Wild Shit", but this post popped up as soon as I published it! The one I published today will probably show up this week some time.

Freeacre,

Busses are better than travel trailers and are easier to back up! Plus you can get one in pretty good shape for about $1500 dollars. A lttle quarter inch boiler plate will armor it enough to turn anything below a high caliber rifle round and give sufficient defence about the "rustlers"

As a man schooled in the ways of warfare, I'm not very concerned about "rustlers"! These individuals are most likely to pick on a target with less defence than anything I would put together! Give me a welder and a little junk, and I will build such vehicles that will send the "Rustlers" rustelling off in another direction!

Throughout recorded time, and probably since the end of the Neolithic Age, there have been three kinds of people in the world, the High, the Middle, and the Low.
The aims of these three groups are entirely irreconcilable. The aim of the High is to remain where they are. The aim of the Middle is to change places with the High. The aim of the Low, when they have an aim -- for it is an abiding characteristic of the Low that they are too much crushed by drudgery to be more than intermittently conscious of anything outside their daily lives -- is to abolish all distinctions and create a society in which all men shall be equal

Well!! I'm not here to be on anybody's side! I DON'T like George W. Bush and I will NOT call the bastard president! I'll call him President Pork Pie, but that is about as close as it gets! I'm not here to comfort the afflicted, but to afflict the comfortable! I learned a long time ago, that if you can make somebody laugh and think at the same time, they'll learn something! I'm trying to teach the American Public that there is another point of view out there, beside the Right Wing's This country's on a greased chute to Hell with Bush as it's Captain! I for one will not sit idley by while he drives the land that I love into the ground! This is my gift to this country. Maybe it's a little crude at times, maybe, it's a little rude at times! But in my world, rude and crude works! I'll post what I damn well please here and invite people to post comments the same way! Rant all you want!! I do! Freedom of Speech is the order of the day here! Like it? Let me know! Don't like it? Let me know! Silence me? AIN'T GONNA HAPPEN! So welcome one and all to STONEY'S RAGE!! It's all for America! I don't make a dime off it! And I won't have it any other way!
