• Spring Break in Karachi, Pakistan!

    Woooooooooooooo! It’s soon Spring Break ya’all, so get ready to party. And what better way to get it on than to travel overseas on a university exchange program. Need ‘da dinero for party essentials? How about one million sequester-free free dollars courtesy of your Department of State?

    While you might have to leave the bikini at home in exchange for a head scarf, your Department of State is celebrating the upcoming Federal government sequester-driven furloughs by offering one million dollars of American tax money to any four-year college or university in the U. S. willing to establish a cooperative agreement with the University of Karachi in Public Policy and Public Administration.

    All you need do is setup some “collaborative research, curriculum development, and faculty and student exchanges. Faculty exchange programs of one semester and graduate student exchange programs of one month are preferred by the University of Karachi.”

    The tender does not say, but it is likely that collaborative research on nuclear topics is discouraged. It is good to know that the University of Karachi does already have some academic affiliations, including with the Pakistani Army School of Ordinance, Malir Cantt., Karachi in the subject area of “Explosive Chemistry.” (page 4, item 7). One wonders if the State Department read any of the fine print on the University’s own web site?

    Now the State Department does not feel the need to lay out in detail exactly why a million dollars of your tax money should be spent setting up a collaborative arrangement between some U.S. school and a Pakistani school, but we can assume the goals are vague and unfocused, you know, blah blah brotherhood of man and world peace.

    Even More

    But before you regurgitate breakfast over the one million bucks above, take a look at another tender from your State Department. This one is titled “Afghanistan Is Getting Better, Website and Story Corps” and offers $250,000 of sequester-proof tax dollars to someone who can “create and design a stand-alone website or dedicated channel on YouTube.com that allows individuals from within Afghanistan and across the globe to upload short personally recorded videos describing why and how the individual is contributing to the betterment of Afghanistan and/or the ways in which the Afghanistan of today has provided opportunities that didn’t exist before, and offering messages of hope for the country’s future.”

    Now in some forms of reality that might be called simple propaganda; however, in the new world of your State Department, it is known as “social media” and “public diplomacy.” Orwell would be proud.

      Ok,I can’t resist. My bad.

      Still trying to prop up the Empire by buying votes of confidence. Priceless.

      So would Larry Flint. Obscene notwithstanding
      these fuckers never cease to amaze me. You could literally post a video of Kerry getting buttfucked by Obama with both of them in military uniforms, with a banner overhead saying “Fucking for Empire”..and America would shrug. Nothing is too obscene nor ridiculous to qualify as “diplomacy” these days. DoS videos are living proof. But this one takes the cake. $1mil dollars. Fuck. Sequester joke of the day.

      So the rumors are true the State Department will be renamed the Ministry of Propaganda.

      Certainly the inevitable consequence of drone-bombing American college dormitories can’t be an entirely bad thing.

      Pitch- ass pounding is apparently a way of social engagement for many in Middle Eastern countries. So Kerry had better be careful.

      Hey guys, speaking of the so called “sequester”, did any one see Obominations statement calling for..ahem..a “caucus of common sense”.

      BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

      Priceless.

      More transmissions from the Parallel Universe of Neuron Free Skull Cavities. I submit, these escapees from Barnum and Baily couldn’t identify “common sense” if they were dipped in Common Sense musk and paraded in field of Common Sense doing a freaking Common Sense mating dance.
      The only caucus these pond scum imbeciles could muster is a caucus of Blatant Liars.

      If anything, these clowns are addicted to Synthetic Lobotomy Serum, brain sucking alien parasites notwithstanding.

      Carry on.

      Careful? Hahahahahahahahaha..on the contrary, he’ll “fit” right in. Hahahahahahaha!

      After his initiation of being buttfucked by the Supreme Court, I’d submit he LIKED it.

      I was refraining from posting this until I saw PVB has allowed so many above comments about sodomy – which is in fact a perfect symbol of the American Empire…

      …in light of which, I shall go ahead and post this (NOT SAFE FOR WORK!) metaphor about Emperor Obama and all of his bitches of any and all “genders”, both somatic and symbolic, real and unreal, all of the American President’s bitches:

      Geez! My reference to ass pounding was a joking comment about Kerry finding himself in a strange land where healthy heterosexual bonding is hardly the norm and needing to be on guard. Where you have perversely paternalistic religious governmental control males rarely develop normally.

      “a strange land where healthy heterosexual bonding is hardly the norm and needing to be on guard”

      That would be Washington DC.

      @JPoole,

      And, of course, that “perversely paternalistic religio[n]” guides so much of the United States and the world, is it any wonder we all can’t just get along? “My daddy’s better than your daddy,” ad infinitum.

      And when the “males rarely develop normally,” so it goes with the females, forever and ever, amen. Hence the nirvana imagined by the gunnies, a nation in which all will be packing against all … a continual state of personal and state warfare.

      Mr. Bauer’s “24”, “NCIS”, et. al, have been preparing the masses for this eventuality.
