Not Just "Oops"

In England nine days ago, 250 cops stormed the home of two suspected terrorists. The cops said they had strong reason to believe there were chemical weapons. Yeah, right. They can believe whatever they want. I can believe there are pink elephants dancing on the dark side of the moon.

Turns out a stupid racist neighbor of theirs cried wolf.

But of course. This war is on terror! Yeah, right (again.) It’s on Muslims. The talking heads insist it’s a war on radical Islamists while showing you pictures of Muslims. What’s the difference in how they look? There is no difference. But they show you the pictures. That’s how they get you.

That’s how they get the public all nervous about Arabs. White people everywhere are ready to snap at a moment’s notice. If you’re an Arab and you sneeze wrong, you just might get shot. And that’s what happened at Forest Gate 9 days ago.

Torch My Ride for the Troops!

Gotta love this. “Rotisserie arson” is on the rise due to rising blood-I-mean-gas prices. That’s where you hire someone to torch your gas guzzler, tell the insurance company it was an accident, collect the cash, and go buy a hybrid. I think everybody should do it.

Meanwhile, the insurance companies get to use it as an excuse for increasing the premiums. How convenient. Everybody’s raping everybody else.

War is hell. Think about the death and the mayhem in Iraq and elsewhere. Think about how the oil companies are doing great as a result. Think about the fraudulent price gouging.

Now think about all the flaming SUVs. Death and mayhem, flaming SUVs. Death and mayhem, flaming SUVs.

See the connection?

I’m just waiting for the TVs to burn. Then we’ll know we’re winning the war.

A Chance to Speak with World Trade Center Landlord Larry Silverstein

Would you like to ask Larry Silverstein a few questions about his role in the 9/11 attacks?

This Wednesday is your chance. He is the scheduled keynote speaker for the 26th Annual BuildersNY trade show at the famed Jacob Javits center in New York City at 9:00 a.m. sharp in room 1A04. Just bring a few gutsy friends, synchronize your watches, and then scatter and pretend like you don’t know each other. Make sure you are dressed nicely, and don’t bring anything that could be perceived as a weapon. Wait until he has been talking long enough to quiet the audience (two minutes ought to do it) and then begin the interrogation. Be sure to bring scripted questions, such as:

How should one go about preparing a tall office building for controlled demolition without any of the tenants knowing about it?

Can you offer any advice on making money from fraudulent insurance claims?

How well do you know Marvin Bush?

And so on. You will definitely get kicked out after about 60 seconds, and maybe even arrested and charged with criminal disorderly conduct. The point of this exercise would be to remind Larry Silverstein that the crime family to whom he is beholden is the least of his worries. He has 300 million Americans to fear.

Gitmo Letters and Suicides; Congress Approves Iraq Permanency; Social Networks Compromised

The mainstream media services ain’t all bad. Here’s today’s news, hot off the server:

1. Knight Ridder reports 10,000 letters, including numerous habeas corpus petitions, from Guantanamo Bay detainees to U.S. lawmakers are being withheld by the U.S. military.

2. New York Times reports three suicides at Guantanamo.

3. Reuters reports Congress is officially, if tacitly, approving permanent military bases in Iraq.

4. New Scientist, a magazine aimed mostly at science professionals, reveals that Friendster and MySpace are the National Security Agency’s latest arenas in which to spy on Americans.

(Note: MySpace is owned by Rupert Murdoch by way of state propaganda machine Fox News. Friendster is headed by a former NBC executive, which is owned by General Electric, a defense contractor.)

All this stuff connects. It’s all part of the same story.
