Grayson may be voted out now, but Ron Paul joins ranks with Barney Frank to keep the bipartisan fires burning.  Say what you want to about Ron Paul, but he reaches across the aisle more than most Republicans.

The American Fear Industry has always been doubleplusgood.

Global warming deniers better watch out.  Science might not be giving up it’s lunch money much longer.

First they came for the BitTorrent sites and I said nothing, for I was only a mere blogger. 

The US wrongly arrests and “interrogates” an innocent German citizen.  And then threatens Germany to mind it’s place and stay out of it.  There’s no room for Integrity in a war of Truthiness.

Holy shit!  I think I just found the asscrack of the internet.  Seriously, this has got to be the most racist thing in existence.  Lots of Neocons and Rush Limbaugh fans there though.  Hmmmmm.

Latest Wikileaks release shows the US government has been trying to collect DNA, iris scans, and fingerprints from various world leaders.  Don’t worry citizen.  They’ve already had yours for years.

More TSA crap.  Woman is treated like a suicide bomber over breast milk.

It appears that National Opt-out Day may have worked after all.  Just not like it was expected to.

Somehow, we didn’t get bombed back to the stone age by terrorists.  Even though the TSA opted to rope off many of it’s scanners and used non-groping methods of pat downs.  Imagine that!

News Corp. hires North Korean web developers.  So a Taliban endorsing Saudi prince as a #2 investor just wasn’t enough for them.  Meanwhile “Real ‘Murika” believes and believes and believes.

Kenya’s prime minister wants the world to know that he really doesn’t understand jack shit about homosexuality.  Oh, and he want to hunt down and prosecute homosexuals.  This is bound to cause some cognitive dissonance with the Birther crowd.

I really liked this video.

Israeli soldiers demoted for using a Palestinian child as a human shield.

The TSA asks that you please don’t participate in scanning boycotts while travelling this holiday season, as it would cause monumental delays and prove to be an extremely effective method of protest.

Stripping down to avoid delays with the TSA doesn’t work. 

Deepak Chopra travels with Obama to India to sell more TSA scanners.  Sorry for the sketchy info on this so far, but it does appear to be true.  It even got mention on Democracy Now.  And no, it’s not THAT Deepak Chopra!

The Simpsons sticks it to Fox News.

When being a Bluedog becomes an ongoing Republican strategy.

Fox News flaunts T&A in order to gain viewers.  Someone please give Republicans some real porn so they’ll quit mixing it with news.

What better way to launch a fake news network than with an anchor from a fake news network.

This GOP representative is one creepy-assed bastard.  I need a shower now.  And a restraining order, just in case.

Remember that old saying, “Better to be pissed off than pissed on.”?  Well, this guy got both.

Obama invites American’s to bask in their freedoms with a quick groping from a uniformed stranger.   I guess we should be thankful he’s not the Pope.

And now for something completely different.

When I get my treatments I can sometimes get pretty damned strange.  High dose intravenous steroids combined with the antibodies of over 20,000 strangers does weird things to my brainpan.  I have been known to suffer from strange musings, fits of senseless giggling, fits of useless bitching, and even mild hallucinations during these times.

Below is an example of some of the strange, sideways, thoughts I get when I’m recovering from treatments.  I’m going to post this picture and see if anyone can decipher it.  I’ll post the answer after a couple days or whenever someone figures it out.  It may be difficult, or it may be quite easy.  I’m in no condition to speculate on that since I made it and it makes perfect sense to me at the moment (in my altered state of perception).

We all knew it would eventually come to this.  The TSA is now patting down children.  Big Brother is a pedophile.

Obama’s oppressive TSA security regime just came out and said “Fuck all y’all!”.  Real ‘Murikans somehow don’t have a problem with this.

Oh, but wait!  I guess Real ‘Murikans finally DO have a  problem with the TSA after all..  Now that they’re messing with our troops.

To top it all off, Ron Paul has a problem with the TSA too.  Grab your popcorn.  This might get good.

Florida airport opts out of TSA screening and opts in for private security instead.  Attention Tea Partiers!  The Free Market bandwagon of freedomy freedomness is now boarding.  Break out the tea bags and Jazzy scooters and I’ll be right there with you on this one.

There’s money to be had when you’re forcing backscatter x-ray scanners on the populace.

Good news everybody! The TSA won’t grope you or scan you if you’re sporting a gigantic Boehner.

Fuck the TSA!

35,000 images saved from TSA strip search scanners have been leaked.  It’s a good thing they kept their promise about not saving any of those pictures.

A followup to the blogger that refused to be scanned or have his genitals fondled by the TSA.  Watch as the TSA tries to put Newspeak to work and weasel out of it all.

You know, I’d think the Tea Partiers would be up in arms over the shit that “Obama’s Big Gubment TSA” has been doing to the rights of American citizens.  Of course that’s expecting them to think for themselves without prodding from their astroturfing masters.  Where’s a horde of Real Libertarians when you need them?

 If you’re flying on Nov. 24th and haven’t had any action lately, you can always take part in the National Opt-out Protest.  By opting out of a digital strip search, you’re guaranteed a thorough genital groping from a stranger.  I encourage anyone undergoing the “enhanced pat-down procedure” to moan loudly and quiver the entire time.

More Reasons to hate the TSA. 

Reason TV gives us a vision of the future of air travel:

Speaking of radiation dangers, cell phones still cause cancer.  We just don’t worry about it anymore.

Republicans have assured a foreign power that they’ll keep the uppity black man and his administration in their place.  Nice to know they’re working with foreign powers to undermine our government.  Didn’t they call that kind of thing “Treason” back in the good ole days?

The Tea Partiers think they have free will and influence.  Isn’t that cute?

Fox Nation hates Sitting Bull.  In all fairness, he kinda got in the way of all that “White Culture” that makes Real ‘Murika so great.

Proof that America’s leading export is now Weapons-Grade Stupidity.  Many thanks to Lady B for sharing this tale of horror with me.  

I don’t know if this is real or not, but it could explain this country’s steadfast march into The New Dark Ages.

 Finally.  A Republican candidate that embodies the concerns of Real ‘Murikans!  I think it’s safe to say this guy is pro “White Culture”.

Newly elected Republican candidate that railed against “Obamacare” gets pissed over having to wait for his government supplied healthcare and even bitches that he can’t buy into some sort of public option in the meantime.  You might want to hold onto this one for when he goes on Fox News bitching about the freeloading peasants that demand a public option.

Regret is one hell of an emotion.

OK.  So I just saw this in a bulletin.  It was peppered with much of the same paranoia that accompanies a lot of the “False flag forwarded emails” that always seem to piss me off.  So I went to Open Congress and looked at the summary for this bill and I don’t see anything spooky about it.  It looks to me like this bill will give the FDA the ability to crawl up the asses of some of the corporations that habitually poison people.  But then I could be a total dumbass.  It happens quite regularly.

Below is the bulletin:

******************************************

(NaturalNews) Senate Bill 510, the Food Safety Modernization Act, has been called “the most dangerous bill in the history of the United States of America.” It would grant the U.S. government new authority over the public’s right to grow, trade and transport any foods. This would give Big brother the power to regulate the tomato plants in your backyard. It would grant them the power to arrest and imprison people selling cucumbers at farmer’s markets. It would criminalize the transporting of organic produce if you don’t comply with the authoritarian rules of the federal government.
“It will become the most offensive authority against the cultivation, trade and consumption of food and agricultural products of one’s choice. It will be unconstitutional and contrary to natural law or, if you like, the will of God.” – Dr. Shiv Chopra, Canada Health whistleblower (http://shivchopra.com/?page_id=2)
This tyrannical law puts all food production (yes, even food produced in your own garden) under the authority of the Department of Homeland Security. Yep — the very same people running the TSA and its naked body scanner / passenger groping programs.
This law would also give the U.S. government the power to arrest any backyard food producer as a felon (a “smuggler”) for merely growing lettuce and selling it at a local farmer’s market.
It also sells out U.S. sovereignty over our own food supply by ceding to the authority of both the World Trade Organization (WTO) and Codex Alimentarius.
It would criminalize seed saving (http://foodfreedom.wordpress.com/20…), turning backyard gardeners who save heirloom seeds into common criminals. This is obviously designed to give corporations like Monsanto a monopoly over seeds.
It would create an unreasonable paperwork burden that would put small food producers out of business, resulting in more power over the food supply shifting to large multinational corporations.
I encourage you to read more about this dangerous bill at the Food Freedom blog on WordPress: http://foodfreedom.wordpress.com/20…
Watch this excellent video on NaturalNews.TV which explains S.510 in more detail:

Take action now or lose your right to grow your own foodSign this petition at Citizens for Health:
http://www.citizens.org/?page_id=2312
Do it today! This is really important.
In addition, the Cornucopia Institute recently sent out an urgent call-to-action email containing the following information: (http://www.cornucopia.org/2010/11/a…)
How to protest Senate Bill 510
1) Go to Congress.org and type in your zip code in the box in the upper right hand corner.
2) Click on your Senator’s name, and then on the contact tab for their phone number. You can also call the Capitol Switchboard and ask to be directly connected to your Senator’s office: 202-224-3121.
3) Once connected ask to speak to the legislative staff person responsible for agriculture. If they are unavailable leave a voice mail message. Be sure to include your name and phone number.
Give them this message in support of the “Tester Amendment” which would exempt small farms from S.510:
“I am a constituent of Senator___________. I ask that he/she support the Tester Amendment to the food safety bill. The Tester Amendment will exempt the safest, small, owner-operator farms and food facilities and farmers who direct market their products to consumers, stores or restaurants. Food safety legislation should not create inappropriate and costly regulatory barriers to family farms and the growing healthy food movement in the drive to crack down on corporate bad actors. Please support the Tester Amendment and market opportunities for small and mid-sized family farms, and small food processing facilities.”
You may also wish to explain that you oppose the Food Safety Modernization Act in its entirety, and it is a destructive, freedom-crushing law that will destroy the future of food in America.
Remember, America has already lost control over its money supply to the Federal Reserve (nearly a hundred years ago). America has lost its health due to the medical industry and its profit-from-sickness agenda. Now we may lose our right to grow our own food and save our own seeds if Senate Bill 510 passes.
This is a dangerous, tyrannical law that would thrust the American people into an age of darkness and malnutrition. It would criminalize many of the very people growing our food and turn food production into yet another corporate monopoly.
Please take the time right now to contact your U.S. Senator and voice your strong opposition to this bill.

***************************************************

It sounds pretty scary, doesn’t it?  I can’t help but think this could be a ploy by Tea Baggers (and their Republican overlords) to keep the FDA out of their free market ability to maximize profits.   Since this is being pushed by Natural News, I’m also inclined to believe some foreign companies that normally export food to the US might be behind this paranoia as well.

If anyone out there has info on this or feels like giving it a glance, please tell me what your opinion is on the whole thing.  I may be missing something.
