Some time ago I came across this on the internet:
The English are feeling the pinch in relation to recent terrorist threats and have therefore raised their security level from “Miffed” to “Peeved.” Soon, though, security levels may be raised yet again to “Irritated” or even “A Bit Cross.” The English have not been “A Bit Cross” since the blitz in 1940 when tea supplies nearly ran out. Terrorists have been re-categorized from “Tiresome” to “A Bloody Nuisance.” The last time the British issued a “Bloody Nuisance” warning level was in 1588, when threatened by the Spanish Armada.
Republicans: Now I am a bit cross.
I understand the war on productive working people; it’s about greed; you think it is a zero-sum game: if I have it, you don’t. We can at least have a conversation about the economics and what is best for society vs. your pocket.
When it comes to the war on women, there is no basis for such a conversation. Your activities are driven by terror of what women could do if they had power. It doesn’t matter whether the attack on Planned Parenthood was a bargaining pawn or a real belief; either way you are evil and a waste of oxygen.
I will not rest until this war is won and you are sniveling in the corner with the other 3-year olds about how you think Mommy isn’t being fair.
"The world is a rigged game"
Matt Taibbi at Rolling Stone: “Word has leaked out that the London-based firm ICAP, the world’s largest broker of interest-rate swaps, is being investigated by American authorities for behavior that sounds eerily reminiscent of the Libor mess. Regulators are looking into whether or not a small group of brokers at ICAP may have worked with up to 15 of the world’s largest banks to manipulate ISDAfix, a benchmark number used around the world to calculate the prices of interest-rate swaps.”
On winning and values
So, right-wingers, you want a society where families are stable, where everybody looks like you and shares your Christian faith, and where the government pretty much stays out of your business? It’s not in some Randian fantasy, it’s right here in the USA.
