Here’s a suggestion for real hope, change and responsibility:
– Ralph Waldo Emerson
Well Cricketeers, the dirty dem and filthy repub co-joined twins of the apocalypse are in fact THE MAJOR FALSE DICHOTOMY I speak of in this post. One of the worst choices the suckergencia™ makes is “between” those supposedly two “separate” parties.
SONOFABUSH! This is a false dichotomy because THERE ARE SEVERAL ADDITIONAL POSSIBLE CHOICES:
- Vote for and support third party candidates
- Vote for and support candidates without party affiliation
- Unfortunately, this is the choice made by at least 50% of the electorate in every election DON’T VOTE AT ALL!
FAGETABOWDIT! If voter turnout is less then 75% of the electorate come next election day this will be all the proof YOU need that those who don’t vote aren’t “satisfied with how our political economy is run, BUT IN FACT ARE DISSATISFIED with the dirty dem and filthy repub false dichotomy “choice!” This is the stark reality of the of the industrial strength ELECTORAL ANGST caused by yet another FALSE DICHOTOMY, this one sold by the corpoRATe media cartels with the adman’s expertise:
YOU can watch/read and believe/support EITHER a pro dirty dem OR pro filthy repub corpoRATe media outlet. Due to technological innovation the corpoRATe media cartels have lost SOME of their virtual monopoly on the press. There are now A ZILLION media outlets from which to chose. This blog is one of em. Much of the old media such as newspapers have hit economic hard times and that segment of the corpoRATe media is clearly in decline. Much has been made of this shift toward a more decentralized press. The power elite and their corpoRATe media cartels have rushed to create yet another false dichotomy to fill this power void:
You can watch/read and believe/support EITHER pro dirty dem OR pro filthy repub “serious, mainstream alternative media outlets” OR YOU are falling under the influence of the “lunatic fringe, radical, extreme, conspiracy theorist, etc.” alternative media outlets. How can ya tell the difference, at least according to the the ethically challenged yellow “journalists” in the employ of the corpoRATe media cartels?
The “serious, mainstream alternative media outlets” are represented on the corpoRATe teevee snooozzee™ by “bloggers” who then sell the dirty dem or filthy repub false dichotomy! That’s how a “blogger” gains acceptance into the private corpoRATe media club perhaps best (or is it worst?) represented by the corpoRATe owned and controlled sunday morn political chat pack™ or other corpoRATe media shows. Simply take part in the “main stream” farce of a “debate!”
All the false dichotomies I spoke of in this post are in yellow, in honor of the ethically challenged yellow “journalists” in the employ of the corpoRATe media cartels who bend over backwards to sell these destructive false dichotomies to the suckergencia™ and thereby insure the continued failure of our political economy!
stausQuobama and the rest of his cronies in washingtOOn, feckless appaRATchiks all, are trying to even reduce the main stream “choice” to but one. This is what shrinking the false dichotomy to one choice looks like:
By claiming that “both (so called) sides” took part in the farce, labamanostra intends to con YOU into believing YOU are getting the best result YOU can hope for. I’m sure you can see that I for one very much beg to differ! The new for shit wealth care, not really health care plan is worse then the old wealth care, not really health care plan! The new for shit disaster of a war is worse then the old disaster of a war. The new out of control military spending is worse then the old out of control military spending, etc.
The Telepathic Crickets™ on the ClapSotronics editorial board and I hope YOU choose to walk away from these non-choices and start choosing to think and act for yourself! WTF?!
We continue to insist that the criminal statusQUObama admin:
- Cut pork barrel military spending by 50%! FUCK the military industrial complex!
- Replace the failed “down payment plan” with universal single payer health care!
Here’s my FAVE endorsement for single payer universal national health care, from the neolib who now refuses to give it to us:
Let’s see, in the video statusQUObama had a step by step process to get a single payer health care plan:
- dems take back white house CHECK √
- dems take back senate CHECK √
- dems take back house o’reps CHECK √
- PAY UP BITCH! Mauhahahahahahahah
The ongoing ClapSotronics serving suggestion:
EAT THE FUCKING pig corpoRATe rich!
laBAMAnostra and laBUSHanostra agree:
- That the disaster of a war should continue indefinitely. laBAMAnostra has the same exit strategy as laBUSHanostra did, no exit strategy what so ever! The corpoRATe pigs agree the current war should be escalated and additional wars should be started whenever possible!
- That the waste, fraud, and abuse pork barrel spending on ever larger pentagon budgets should continue and money “should be no object” when it comes to the funding of military death and destruction! paygo my ass!
- That the thieving corpoRATe insurance companies (the rotten aig being only the tip of the corpoRATe iceberg in the insurance larceny business) should be able to continue to pocket almost half of our health care dollars via the waste fraud and abuse filled current “free market health care system.” This ripoff comes in the form of over the top corpoRATe insurer “administrative costs” and corpoRATe drug pusher profiteering even as the rest of us are badly served by their wealth care, NOT REALLY HEALTH CARE SYSTEM!
- That the wal-fare system (click this link to see how I defined the wal-fare system in an earlier post) started by the klinton klan co-presidents slick willy and hillary dillary doo (she a former walmart board member and both former co-presidents are now made members of laBAMAnostra) and made ever worse by the waste, fraud, and abuse pork barrel funding of so called “faith based” organizations should be able to continue to poverty pimp we poor folks into ever deeper poverty! Punitive policies that force us into slave labor, low wage “jobs” and sermons are no replacement for the basic human needs based system we should have!
- That the inherently dishonorable corpoRATe criminals should be allowed to continue to “self police” as the idiots in washingtOOn chant the tired deregulation mantra!
It’s time to put an end to deregulation and the kid glove wrist slap treatment they get by regulating the corpoRATeers and RICO statute CRIMINAL PROSECUTIONS OF THE corpoRATe THIEVES!
The scientifically impossible I do right away
The spiritually miraculous takes a bit longer
