About Me

Gee - my profile info didn't migrate from the old DU I guess? The main thing - 90% refers to the maximum allowable percentage of nitromethane fuel permitted in modern NHRA Top Fuel and Funny cars. Which is what makes current "nostalgia nitro" so cool - you can still "tip the can" and run straight nitro, if you want to. I'm an aging northeast liberal with an overdeveloped justice gland. OUR INSTITUTIONS ARE INFESTED WITH GREEDY AND CORRUPT SOCIOPATHS

Plenty more where this came from, fellow DU'ers.

Frank Zappa explains the "liberal media bias" trick

And this clip is from the mid 80's. "Nice trick".

The well worn "liberal media bias" has served Conservative Corporate Propagandists for DECADES now.
If you repeat a big lie long enough it becomes true.



Yet another example of my good taste in life long hero's. He had all this stuff figured out in High School!

Anything, any time, any place, for any reason at all.

To paraphrase my life long hero Frank Zappa.

Oh just to hell with it all. A rude off color disrespectful and perhaps sporadically unfunny WHCD is EXACTLY WHAT'S CALLED FOR in these our-president-is-wrecking-everything so badly we're all going to enjoy incinerating-extincting THE ENTIRE PLANET in short order.

These times are really THE END OF THE WORLD AS WE KNOW IT so who the hell cares about some DESERVEDLY HURT FEELINGS based on the mere words of a comedian brave enough to do a 2006 COLBERT-WHCS less funny and meaner than the COURAGEOUS PATRIOT Colbert did back then?

Republicans deserve everything (what's left of) polite society has to throw at them.

rat f**king

Have we learned NOTHING from the pernicious brainiacs spawned in the nixon white house? your roves, atwaters, stones, ailes, murdochs, mercers, bannons, breitbarts, limbaughs, rathers, putin's, cohen-kohns, etc etc. etc.

set your critical thinking caps to ELEVEN! It's going to be a bumpy ride and THE PLANET can not tolerate another loss of the magnitude of THE GREAT AL FRANKEN!

He was smart enough. He was honorable enough. He was self assured enough, and dammit, he did it from the heart for the basic democracy tenants that were the foundation of our FORMERLY GREAT nation.

Won't get fooled again........and again...............and again.................and again................and again.

republics do entrapment and personal destruction. because it works. witness o'keefe's most recent bogus moore accuser washington post "sting". well, that didnt work out so well, but he did the deed destroying acorn.

doesn't leannes association with hannity and stone seem exactly like an o'keefe plan? the same entrapment over and over.....And isn't there a pot of corrupt cash waiting to reward leanne, like the way o'keefe gets fucking millions of dollars donated to his non-profit?

why do not the senate dems calling for his head practice basic principles of democracy - like due process? get the investigation going. put leanne under oath.

its like senate dems believe in burning witches or human sacrifice? stoning on the town green. it's like the dems are content with being only 20% less cruel and despicable than republics!

dems, you fools, you cant negotiate with republics. they have no sense of basic human decency!

AHCA coverage Rachel 5/4. The most jaw dropping part for me

That seems to have escaped the mass consciousness, which is understandable given we are overwhelmed standing in the hurricane eye of a greed/cruelty-based form of governing, and I feel it warrents an audience numbering in the hundreds of millions.

She had on Johnathan Gruber, an economist that helped create Romneycare and Obamcare. Intelligent, articulate, and rather young looking for a tv expert.

The MONEY QUOTE:

Gruber: "I think, Rachel, and I'm not an expert historically, I think this is one of the largest redistributions from poor to rich in one bill we've ever seen."

Rachel: ".........OK................well.............that's hard to hear............."

Shakespearean tragedy

he's gotten all he wants in life by being a selfish, greedy, unethical, bullying, amoral, lying, swindling grifter. I grew up on LI and he was on howard stern for decades, talking about all the dirty stuff howard likes.

Forty years of getting away with all the sleaze and swindling will blow up in his face. This russian treasonous traitorous collusion with the enemy by all the repub swamp dwellers will make watergate look like a much smaller worst constitutional crisis in our history.

The fall will be spectacular and nerve wracking for all the disaster capitalism and great depression misery it will inflict on the world.

If we avoid thermonuclear armageddon it will be a win for us all. There's gonna be schadenfreude parties all over the place once the repub convictions get rolling! Russians controlling the USA by proven KGB tactics is one big fucking elephant in the room.

These times call for many more PROFILES IN COURAGE

This is no longer about the feather bedding and self serving corruption of our elected officials. It is about whether Americans in the present will continue to strive for the highest ideals for Democracy of our Founding Fathers.

Or will we slide into NAKED RUSSIAN CONTROLLED KLEPTOCRACY?

We are drowning in the rape of everything great America used to stand for.

Angela - we yield the planet to you. Be KIND to us. Be GOOD to us!

To all our career pols - you're secure and set for life with everything you could want for, thanks to all of us electing you repeatedly. Could you maybe return the favor now and stand for Democracy? You know, like actually practice the Oath you took to UPHOLD THE CONSTITUTION? You could go down in history as a good person, instead of historic damnation for letting our cherished values burn - kill the families of terrorists, indeed! That is not greatness and given the chance, George Washington would kill #45 with his bare hands.

RESIST!

Frank Zappa's many warnings of the threat of RELIGIOUS THEOCRACY

Google the lyrics if FZ's music is not appealing to you. Really. In the context of our current Republican Party, collectively less honorable and more mean than Mussolini, Stalin and Hitler combined, consider the beauty of a PRESIDENT PENCE. The RR is creeping me out in a trigger a civil war and blood in the streets and false flag terror attacks martial law first they came for the jews kind of way.

Here's two MANDATORY youtubes for Trump, for the love of God!

I'm a 62 year old boomer. I remember the Cuban missile crisis. I remember MAD. Sadly, I remember the fall of the Berlin Wall in the early 90's and the hopes of the world eliminating the grotesque nuclear stockpile, which the world has been doing since then. And the hopes of friendship with our newly democratized Cold War Foe.

UNTIL NOW

These two video's are what this fool put back on the planet's table! The work of the devil himself, I tell you! This man is, in Frank Zappa's song title words, a TREACHEROUS CRETIN! The world will end simply on the massive stupidity and mental illness of this single human being. And fuck his place in history. No humans left alive = no fucking recorded history for a few billion years.
