America is a vomitous cesspool

holly shit, we're fucked.
America is a vomitous cesspool
America is a vomitous cesspool
Fascinating...the Eugene Register Guard had a picture of Saxby Chambliss on the front cover today. Anybody else remember a few months ago when he told the Georgia State Sherriff's association that the best way they could fight terror would be to stop every arab at the state line and tell them to get lost?
inside we saw a picture of Ed Rendell, former mayor of philly who oversaw the firebombing of the MOVE house and 60 other low income black dwellings because one group decided to grow their own food, wear dreadlocks and get off the electrical grid. he's now governor of the whole state of penn.
nice pic of gordon smith, who's pushing plans to privatize the us water supply and sell it off to a giant french corporation who will no doubt turn our water system into one much like south africa's: where water will only come out of your tap if your pre-paid card has $$ on it, otherwise sorry sucker!

what the fuck is going on? i don't believe in this whole goddamned system, but how could the majority of those who do ask to be ruled by such vile, racist, fascist people? i swear, i think america must be inhabited by a twisted mass of hatefilled, ignorant fuckheads who want the world to go down the shitter and hope they'll stay on top in the meantime.

it really makes me want to punch the next straightlaced, clean-cut christian i see right in the face.

Actually Ed Rendell was not the mayor during the horrible MOVE bombing. That was Wilson Goode who thankfully was not elected for anything last evening.

Can you (or anyone) please explain how we're really any more fucked than we were on Nov 4? Yes, the fuckers are still in power, but did anyone expect the election to change that?

Save your energy for when things really do go to shit; you'll need it and I'm guessing we don't have much time.

Folks, the situation exists in your heads - an election won't change shit, psilocybin or dimethyltriptamine on the other hand........
In short the problem relates more to an evolutionary one as opposed to a revolutionary one. All One.
Think for yourself elections won't solve shit my friends, there are no friends anywhere, there are no enemies anywhere.
