The oppressor, blind to the brutality and injustice meted out to sustain dominance and prosperity, escalates the levels of force employed to protect privilege. The crimes of the oppressor are seen among the elite as the administering of justice—law and order, the war on terror, the natural law of globalization, the right granted by privilege and power to shape and govern the world. The oppressor cannot see the West’s false humanism. The oppressor cannot, as James Baldwin wrote, understand that our “history has no moral justification, and the West has no moral authority.” The oppressor, able to speak only in the language of force and increasingly lashing out like a wounded animal, will be consumed in the inferno.
“People who shut their eyes to reality simply invite their own destruction,” Baldwin wrote,“and anyone who insists on remaining in a state of innocence long after that innocence is dead turns himself into a monster.

The Ballad of George W. Bush.
Come and listen to a story bout a boy named Bush,
His IQ was zero, and his head was up his tush.
He drank like a fish while he drove all about,
But that didn't matter 'cuz his daddy bailed him out.
DUI that is. Criminal record cover-up.
Well the first thing you know little George goes to Yale.
He can't spell his name but they never let him fail.
He spends all his time hangin' out with student folk
and that's when he learns how to snort a line of coke.
Blow that is. White gold. Nose candy.
The next thing you know there's a war in Vietnam.
Kin folks say, "George, stay at home with Mom."
Let the common folk get maimed and scarred,
We'll buy you a spot in the Texas Air Guard.
Cushy, that is. Country clubs. Nose Candy.
Twenty years later George gets a little bored,
He trades in the booze, says that Jesus is his Lord.
He said," Now the White House is the place I wanna be,"
So he called his daddy's friends and they called the GOP.
Gun owners, that is. Falwell, Jesse Helms.
Come November 7 2000 the election ran late.
Kin Folk said "Jeb give the boy your state!"
Don't let those colored folks get into the polls.
So they put up barricades so they couldn't punch their holes.
Chads that is. Duval County, Miami Dade.
Before the votes were counted Five Supremes stepped
in,
Told all the voters,"Hey, we want George to win."
Stop counting votes!" was their solemn inocation,
And that's how George finally got his coronation.
Rigged that is, illegitimate. No moral authority.
THE BUSH/CHENEY HALIBURTONS!

No, actually the fact that they use condoms means they would vouch for their mistake, since they just misusded condoms, thats all, if the teen is raised a child to have many talks, starting at 6, instead of having to have that talk at 6, but instead they were raised to understand their responsibility, they wouldn't have sex and would instead have no excuse to make this, "mistake". You don't have the talk with your teenager when he turns 13, you start when he's much younger, while it may be a tough run to opt out of birth control at first, parents will just have to stick by, but in the long run it will help much more. Teenagers are given less responsiblilty with these birth control methods being sticked in their as excuses, and especially as abortion being the excuse.
Seriously, you would talk to a 6 year old child about sex? I don't think so. Condoms are not vouching for a mistake; it is helping to prevent one. A mistake that could result in hardship, expense and ruined lives. It's a different world. There are much more people in it. Resources are dwindling. Yes, people do need to take responsibility for there actions, and that is the parents role. No parent can predict what their child will do. All they can do is educate that child to the best of their ability and teach them what one moment of passion can do. It's important for a parent to gain that child's trust so that if that child feels out of control, he can feel secure in confiding with that parent/parents. Most teens will not abstain from sex, but there will be some who will. The point is, the option should be there for them. It's the only way to help reduce teen pregnancies. It seems that some kids are getting the idea of how teen pregnancy can ruin their lives, but these are kids who very likely had common sense to begin with. Unfortunately, many do not. I'm not advocating teen sex in any way. I'm just saying that simply telling a teen not to, isn't going to work for most kids. It's like when Nancy Reagan said, "Just say no to drugs.", which didn't work. You can raise a child well and with all of the best intentions, but the fact is, that hasn't stopped teens from having sex. I agree though that it happens more in homes where good parenting is lacking. I would rather my teen have access to condoms, then have him/her afraid to come to me for guidance or help, particularly when it's too late.

For my part I am not going to return my home to the provider. I paid for it, it's mine not the governments. My kids can decide what to do with it. My investments are mine, again the kids will decide how they will be used, not the government. My assets are mine and will not be returned to the provider. Of course the government will tax theshit out those assets but in your world, the world of the taker that is as it should be.

I had more faith in the intelligence of the American public than I should have. I figured that there was absolutely no way the majority of the voters would ignore the fact that Lord Obama is second only to Jimmy Carter in his handling of the economy. The numbers don't lie-- look at the unemployment rate, the debt, on and on and on.
I thought the majority wouldn't ignore his embarassing behavior with foreign affairs, standing up the Israeli prime minister, the Benghazi debacle.
I thought people would look at his infatuation with movie stars, rap singers, etc. partying at the White House, Moochelle flying 60 of her closest friends on our dime to Spain for a week of frolick in the sand and be a bit annoyed.
But I was wrong. The majority, like you, are in it for the free stuff. Women were convinced to vote for him so they could get free (paid for by an Evil Rich Guy) birth control pills and save $9/month. Families everywhere were bought with free (paid for by an Evil Rich Guy) school breakfasts, lunches and dinners. Let the party continue.
It's really rather pathetic. What will it take to persuade you parasites that WORKING IS GOOD. I guess when the last Evil Rich Guy is tapped out, the well runs dry, and the Free Stuff isn't available, you'll burn tires in the street and whine like they do in Greece, Spain and elsewhere.
Whatever happens, you own it. In four more years the unemployment rate is still around 10% and the debt is in the tens of trillions, YOU VOTED FOR IT.
Congratulations.
All you who voted for obama, you own it, when shit starts to really hit the fan, obamacare and it's inclusion of existing conditions such as, idiocy will not be covered, because their might not be any money left or people might find a way to pass legislation to rid of this costly, job killing venture.

The presidential election exposed the liberal class as a corpse. It fights for nothing. It stands for nothing. It is a useless appendage to the corporate state. It exists not to make possible incremental or piecemeal reform, as it originally did in a functional capitalist democracy; instead it has devolved into an instrument of personal vanity, burnishing the hollow morality of its adherents. Liberals, by voting for Barack Obama, betrayed the core values they use to define themselves—the rule of law, the safeguarding of civil liberties, the protection of unions, the preservation of social welfare programs, environmental accords, financial regulation, a defiance of unjust war and torture, and the abolition of drone wars. The liberal class clung desperately during the long nightmare of this political campaign to one or two issues, such as protecting a woman’s right to choose and gender equality, to justify its complicity in a monstrous evil. This moral fragmentation—using an isolated act of justice to define one’s self while ignoring the vast corporate assault on the nation and the ecosystem along with the pre-emptive violence of the imperial state—is moral and political capitulation. It fails to confront the evil we have become.
“The American Dream has run out of gas,” wrote the novelist J.G. Ballard.“The car has stopped. It no longer supplies the world with its images, its dreams, its fantasies. No more. It’s over. It supplies the world with its nightmares now.…”
Liberals have assured us that after the election they will build a movement to hold the president accountable—although how or when or what this movement will look like they cannot say. They didn’t hold him accountable during his first term. They won’t during his second. They have played their appointed roles in the bankrupt political theater that passes for electoral politics. They have wrung their hands, sung like a Greek chorus about the evils of the perfidious opponent, assured us that there is no other viable option, and now they will exit the stage. They will carp and whine in the wings until they are trotted out again to assume their role in the next political propaganda campaign of disempowerment and fear. They will, in the meantime, become the butt of ridicule and derision by the very politicians they supported.
Of course it fights for something. It fights for human rights, it stands for human rights. It's about trying to banish human suffering, protecting the environment, caring for the sick and the elderly, about access to affordable healthcare that many don't even have because the high cost of healthcare is beyond their reach. It shouldn't have to be that way. Greed is the number one reason our economy was ruined first by Bush and his administration. Their cause wasn't with the average American citizens. Much of our manufacturing went overseas at that time and illegal immigration ran rampant for the purpose of cheap labor. If New York got rid of all the illegals, that state would shut down.

Remember the eruption in Washington State well. We were lucky only had a couple of inches of ash, other areas got up up 6 inches of the stuff. The ash fallout was so great that in mid afternoon it was so dark with headlights you could not see a block.

Now that the entertainment is over – now that the world’s longest sporting event is finally over for FOX and CNN, Americans will have to go back to the day-to-day lives they managed to avoid during this latest Presidential election.
The reality bites once again, that in 2012, America remains more divided than ever in terms of wealth, in terms of values, in terms of Prozac, and in terms of tribal identity politics.
Romney seemed liked Wall Street’s ideal President, but he wasn’t ruthless enough it seems. You have to really want the power. Mitt put on a good show, but played too soft to actually win.
Obama proved that he was worthy of the banking elite’s endorsement four years ago. Remember when Obama left the campaign trail with his dancing partner John McCain in 2008, to help to spearhead the bankers’ takeover of the White House in 2008 (Bush Jr was fishing at the time), pushing through Democratic support for the first banker bailout? Obama had to do it because the Wall Street banking elite ‘made him’ in terms of his candidacy, and they could also break him too. Obama’s family connections with the Geithners didn’t hurt either, nor did Soros’ love of Obama. He proved that he could follow orders.
Obama’s campaign strap line this year was “FORWARD”, an interesting choice of word, blunt and brutal – one straight out of Mao Se Tung’s China, or Stalin’s Russia. Is this a hint of things to come?
America has never been so divided as it is today in 2012
Over a million signatures from 47 states to secede so far. Florida is #5 with the most signatures.

I associate the word "forward" with Custer's last stand and his last word.

Interesting the other context.

Oh, I don't know - I've read every post so far, and while they don't have a patch on 'THE DEBIL' for salaciousness, they rival his/hers in relevance.

I say keep it coming - it's some of the most intelligent prose I've found here so far - but unless he/she is ad-libbing, it might be a good idea to cite the original source.
