    The price of bullshit is going up faster than the price of gold or oil.
    No doubt Uhbama’s is on the Chicago Commodities Exchange.

    At least Sarah’s words are worth listening to.

    I’d like a refund for teh precedent’s words I’ve had to hear.

    Speaking of Sarah, Netflix has this new movie called Iron Sky. She plays the President in it. Too bad the actress who played her couldn’t do a better impression of her, but it was good enough.

    It’s a space comedy with Moon Naxis in it. It’s kinda hard to essplain, but’s quite funny. Some great dialog in there, and it’s one of those movies that’s mocks bits of other movies. I love those!

    Also, this film was financed purely over the internets tubes. I remember seeing a short trailer for it 7 or 8 years ago. They just built a website and axed for donations. I never thought they’d raise that much money and make it (this not a low budget film), but they did.

    Fellow Comrades,
    We are now in the era of pound the shit out of everyone in the media that gives The Emperor a hard time. We are seeing in living color (wake up please) what Barry and the rest of the left has been frothing to do.

    Alinsky: Scroll down to “Tactics” #13 13. Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it. In conflict tactics there are certain rules that [should be regarded] as universalities. One is that the opposition must be singled out as the target and ‘frozen.’…
    “…any target can always say, ‘Why do you center on me when there are others to blame as well?’ When your ‘freeze the target,’ you disregard these [rational but distracting] arguments…. Then, as you zero in and freeze your target and carry out your attack, all the ‘others’ come out of the woodwork very soon. They become visible by their support of the target…’
    “One acts decisively only in the conviction that all the angels are on one side and all the devils on the other.” (pps.127-134)

    So Conservatives are safe. Eh?

    And to think with John ing Kerry, Chuck Hagel and Brennan in charge of the security of this country, what could go wrong. The 4 Horseman of the Foreign Policy Apocalypse.

    Time to watch this on a Daily basis and counteract all the Propaganda!
    the most dynamic 180 seconds we could ever use to beat these bastards. Words are also subtitled

    Are you ready for a war?

    $522.88 per word? I assume that is a leading indicator of historic inflation. Going to be keeping an eye on the price of bread …

    I’ve been waiting for someone to mention what it cost the tax payer for his ego to get it’s daily fix of adoration.

    CRAP! I just realized that defunct Newsweak magazine took me to the fuckin cleaners. I wrote a 1000 word article which they published and they paid me $1000.00 dollars. ONE. DOLLAR. A. WORD! (…easy math, even HOG could calculate, ifn he had a piece ah paper an a pencil—with a eraser…)

    An OBoBo charges $522.88 cents, a word, greater than half of which were “Lie Words”!
