About Me

I am a Brit. I am a working class child of the troubles in Belfast who now lives a life of privilege. I am an anti-racist, progressive monster for truth. If I fail in being that monster, call me out....

It only took a decade...


January 2010 Olbermann Special Comment - soooo accurate a decade later.

Today, the Supreme Court, of Chief Justice John Roberts, in a decision that might actually have more dire implications than "Dred Scott v Sandford," declared that because of the alchemy of its 19th Century predecessors in deciding that corporations had all the rights of people, any restrictions on how these corporate-beings spend their money on political advertising, are unconstitutional.

In short, the first amendment free speech for persons which went into affect in 1791, applies to corporations, which were not recognized as the equivalents of persons until 1886. In short, there are now no checks on the ability of corporations or unions or other giant aggregations of power to decide our elections.

None. They can spend all the money they want. And if they can spend all the money they want sooner, rather than later they will implant the legislators of their choice in every office from President to head of the Visiting Nurse Service. ... Micheal Moore

A bought president and a paid for supreme court and it only took ten years.

Boris Johnson in Intensive Care

His symptoms have worsened and he has been moved to ICU in case he needs a ventilator. I would not wish this on my worst enemy and I have real concerns that Raab who will be his de facto stand in will be right wing authoritarian on steroids if he has to take control. That is who he is. This is serious chaps. I think the mortality rate is about 40% from ICU in Italy...

Even his very best would be wholly inadequate...

just sayin'

This so did not age well...

Heh, Dr Death has found a new home in the WH

BREAKING: psychotic orange clown discovered roaming the sewers of Washington DCj..


BREAKING: psychotic orange clown discovered roaming the sewers of Washington DC luring Coronavirus infected people in, with promises of curing them with #Hydroxychloroquine.


Reports today that not only is Boris in hospital but he is on oxygen...

I wish the man no harm, of course. But one has to ask how that herd immunity concept is working out for him?

By comparison Nixon was just a garden variety Eisenhower Republican with slight persecution complex

All of this and Trump does not drink... which may have been a small mitigation in Nixons rages. Angry drunk be very male pale and stale after all. Trump does not need those two martini's to cause global panic. He can be that insane sober.

It is just a different kind of death cult

Remember when ISIS was rampaging around the middle east and while the right wing were blaming their actions on the fact, they were Muslims, the rest of us knew that they were a bloody horrific murder death cult? Well, turn it on its head a bit and this same shit is happening right now in America. ISIS felt that they owned their population, to do with what they will, it is very clear that the republican party with Trump at the helm believes the exact same thing.

We are witness to Trump being at his very worst when even his very best would be wholly inadequate. The republican party is enabling this ineptitude because at heart they demonstrably believe that the deaths of the ordinary do not matter if it tampers with their power and profit. This has never been as clearly on display as through this crisis. They believe that they have agency over everyone, that they get to decide how much risk is acceptable when people are literally drowning in their lungs. They get to decide not to send ventilators where they are needed. They get to decide that essential public health services should be sacrificed to tax cuts for the rich. They get to charge people for tests / healthcare. They get to offer an incredibly shoddy federal response, which is much cheaper than a co-ordinated response. I could go on, but you get the drift. If anyone wants to tell me that does not make them a death cult, well I have a bridge I can sell them. Death cult indeed.

An essential business you say?

Heh. Not only are they businesses who should pay tax, if they stay open during this crisis they are also death cults...

Has there has ever been a person more full of shit than Trump in the history of the world?

Hitler, Stalin and Mussolini. Maybe they beat him? But after than I am struggling cause of ring a ding ding nazi death cult full of shit Trump is a fucking outrageous danger.
