"...it's not the training to be mean but the training to be kind that is used to keep us leashed best." ~ Black Dog Red

"In case you haven't recognized the trend: it proceeds action, dissent, speech." ~ davidly, on how wars get done

"...What sort of meager, unerotic existence must a man live to find himself moved to such ecstatic heights by the mundane sniping of a congressional budget fight. The fate of human existence does not hang in the balance. The gods are not arrayed on either side. Poseiden, earth-shaker, has regrettably set his sights on the poor fishermen of northern Japan and not on Washington, D.C. where his ire might do some good--I can think of no better spot for a little wetland reclamation project, if you know what I mean. The fight is neither revolution nor apocalypse; it is hardly even a fight. A lot of apparatchiks are moving a lot of phony numbers with more zeros than a century of soccer scores around, weaving a brittle chrysalis around a gross worm that, some time hence, will emerge, untransformed, still a worm." ~ IOZ

The Story Doesn't Matter

December 2010: "Al Qaeda" has never been weaker. Imperial Barack did it.

December 2009: "Al Qaeda" is a hundred dudes in hiding.

November, December 2010: "We will fight this band of evil brothers who have never been weaker, which means less than a hundred dudes, facing tens of thousands of the world's best equipped monsters of death delivery, but somehow managing to stay alive long enough to justify more soldiers, more defense contracts and more requisitions, at least through 2014."

December 2014: "The Taliban now controls one half of the world's opium supply, distributing it across the globe from bases in both Pakistan and Afghanistan. President [..............] has asked Congress to expand the AUMF, in order to give the military the tools necessary to pursue these terrorists..."

The same fear mongers that scribbled for W, are still scribbling for O.

BTW. Do you know how to get a hold of BDR?
When I go to his site a red DO NOT ENTER SITE malware banner comes up. Nocaptionneeded.com seems to be the problem.
Just thought he should know.

Since I too am trying to protect my family from death at the hands of the terrorists - intrepid though they are, our four cats aren't the best line of defense - I wonder how I can get some of that fat gubmint scratch. Ladies and gentlemen, the next Al-Qaeda #3 is on me.

Jack Crow said...

RZ - are you using the new link to BDR?


I don't get that warning - but it may just be a blind spot in my Norton package.

And yup - same corporate press, doing the same shilling.



Mimic this savvy cat:

ya, I just went over using your link and the same thing.
I use Kaspersky and I get these malware warnings. Chris Floyd had it for a while.
My site had it a few weeks back. In that case it said it was due to AmnestyUSA. I stayed off my own site for 24 hours, then it went away.

I will bet that it will never be due to FascistUSA. :-)

Jack Crow said...

Nor to NewYorkTimesUSA or CNNUsa...

Tao Dao Man said...

You will not see NYT or CNN on my Info zone list. :-)

BDR said...

RZ, thanks for the heads-up. I don't get the flag and I use Kaspersky. I wonder if it's because I link to Floyd - I get the same flag there you do.

Tao Dao Man said...

It is saying [[[nocaptionsneeded.com]]]is the culprit.

i will try your site again.

Tao Dao Man said...

The banner is still up.

BDR said...

I've no idea - I'm a tech dope. I'll ask some friends. Thanks again.
