      The non-abaya clad woman is a yellow badge, most likely a third country national contractor.

      On second thought, and on a lighter note(pun intended), just read the article at the link Peter posted on twitter.


      So, State releases a human rights report covering the entire planet, but doesn’t include the US.

      I guess that picture of blowing bubbles pretty much sums it up. Perfect. Just fucking perfect. If hubris were mountains, the USG and State would equal Mt Everest x infinity +1

      Ya know, considering the Physics community now pretty much confirms our Universe is but one of an infinity of Parallel Universes, I’m convinced that sometime in 2001, I was sucked into a wormhole and emerged in a Parallel Universe where the Nazi’s won, but the Swastika was replaced with an American Eagle. Yesireeebob. I’m absolutely convinced. Thank you Physics. Not.

      Given our current state of reality makes the Twilight Zone look like a visit to Disneyland, I submit we’ve transcended to another dimension. Want proof? Consider this last sentence in this article.

      The booming business of drones. (sighing)

      I need a fucking lobotomy.

      And then there’s this…
      quote:”One(Raytheon) email stated, “Perfect Citizen is Big Brother.”

      and this..
      and this..

      REAL ID.
      Forget the lobotomy. Give me a goddamn..nevermind.

      Well folks. We’ve arrived. There’s nothing left but sadness.

      ps. The day this becomes reality is the day human beings no longer exist. And were pretty damn close to that day. They will never barcode or insert a chip in me..EVER.


      Betrayal Trauma anyone?

      ps, when I clicked on that link, some kind of Google “bar” appeared at the bottom of the screen where my Task bar is. Off to the left, within the “bar”, another box appeared with a large Stop Sign image, with the text.. “WARNING” on it’s face, and the following text next to it…
      Something big is going to happen in America within the next 180 days.”
      Does anyone else get that bar? Or ever seen one like it?
      god what I’d give to post jpgs here.

      My agency does this stuff too, right down to the bubbles. Gotta love US foreign policy. It’s either contractors jamming M-4’s into your temple or overweight women blowing bubbles with the natives. I don’t think in the annals of imperial occupation-type-stuff, there’s ever been a regime like the Americans where you have Woody Allen meets The Rock vying for control over a multi-thousand year old civilization that doesn’t give a shit about us. God bless Trey Parker and Matt Stone. They get it.

      If she were a political officer, this would actually be a productive use of her time.

      They say a picture is worth a thousand words like the one of the blowing bubble brains, but some words speak volumes. Here’s Matt Taibbi’s words on the Great Deception:

      “It was all a lie – one of the biggest and most elaborate falsehoods ever sold to the American people. We were told that the taxpayer was stepping in – only temporarily, mind you – to prop up the economy and save the world from financial catastrophe. What we actually ended up doing was the exact opposite: committing American taxpayers to permanent, blind support of an ungovernable, unregulatable, hyperconcentrated new financial system that exacerbates the greed and inequality that caused the crash, and forces Wall Street banks like Goldman Sachs and Citigroup to increase risk rather than reduce it. The result is one of those deals where one wrong decision early on blossoms into a lush nightmare of unintended consequences. We thought we were just letting a friend crash at the house for a few days; we ended up with a family of hillbillies who moved in forever, sleeping nine to a bed and building a meth lab on the front lawn.”

      Speaking of the power of words, some bird brains don’t like tweets:

      Nice post Rich.

      But wait till pond scum Feinstein unleashes her gun-ban legislation. It will re-define unintended consequences.

      ps, speaking of bird brains, and on a lighter note, behold monumental stupidity at its finest. From the “you can’t make this stuff up” file….

      A sense of humor as deft and daft as Peter’s — well-done.

      Rich’s selection analogizing bankers to terminal couch-occupying hillbillies is quite good. It would hold up for anyone/thing we prop up (i.e., our new Arab Friends, etc. etc.)
