wow! you guys HAVE To see this video...
it is a BRILLIANT, AMAZING example of propaganda vs one guy speaking the TRUTH and being made fun of.

this guy looks like a FORTUNE TELLER and all the other panelists look like hyenas, in retrospect, don't they??!!

i have seen a LOT of things relatively like this (ron paul, et al) but this is just totally stunning :)

do watch!

i, sir, am not amused...

at the macy's "rick roll"...

when they warn ya its not a rick roll...

i am also NOT amused with the lipsyncing...

i could've possibly been amused with the lip syncing if it were not announced.

i have seen people were actually impressed with it...i am not one.

those people must be drunk

(this blog hsa 4567 views. make a wish!)

For John Dillinger
In hope he is still alive
Thanksgiving Day, November 28, 1986

Thanks for the wild turkey and the Passenger Pigeons, destined to be shit out through wholesome American guts

thanks for a Continent to despoil and poison —

thanks for Indians to provide a modicum of challenge and danger —

thanks for vast herds of bison to kill and skin, leaving the carcass to rot —

thanks for bounties on wolves and coyotes —

thanks for the AMERICAN DREAM to vulgarize and falsify until the bare lies shine through —

thanks for the KKK, for nigger-killing lawmen feeling their notches, for decent church-going women with their mean, pinched, bitter, evil faces —

thanks for "Kill a Queer for Christ" stickers —

thanks for laboratory AIDS —

thanks for Prohibition and the War Against Drugs —

thanks for a country where nobody is allowed to mind his own business —

thanks for a nation of finks — yes, thanks for all the memories... all right, let's see your arms... you always were a headache and you always were a bore —

thanks for the last and greatest betrayal of the last and greatest of human dreams.
