Last Chance, Punk!

By mike flugennockThursday - September 21st, 2017Categories: Trumpism, war and peace

If you caught any of the Trumpster’s speech at the UN this past week, you’ll know that pretty much the only thing missing was him banging his shoe on the podium and yelling “we will bury you!”.

A fake war threat juiced up with sick-ass lies, a tinhorn enemy made out to be all-powerful, repeatedly screamed claims about weapons of mass destruction, bellicose threats at the UN… jeez, just when did we hear this last time, kids? Don’t everybody jump up at once…

Capitalism Works Best When Left Alone

At the Capitol Hill Teabaggers’ Rally this past July 4th, I spotted more than a few signs saying “Capitalism Works Best When Left Alone”, and it got me thinking, what vast new entrepreneurial opportunities have been denied owing to government regulations and petty tyrannies such as the Clean Water Act, The Pure Food And Drug Act, or the Glass-Steagall Act…?

Nuclear Threat

By mike flugennockThursday - June 8th, 2006Categories: Bushit, Middle East, war and peace

I saw on the morning news the footage of the first successful synthesis of uranium by the Iranians. I saw a scientist holding up this little capsule of radioactive gas with this theatrically triumphant attitude. As I heard the pundits clucking on TV, I reminded myself, “OK, Iran’s finally gone nuclear, but who’s the real nuclear threat in the Middle East?” Every time I asked myself this, I kept coming up with the same answer:


BIG HINT: it begins with an “I”, ends with an “L”, and has “S-R-A-E” in the middle. Has anyone else noticed how the US Press and the State are shitting themselves over Iran finally managing to produce some crummy-assed smidgen of enriched uranium, while failing to point out that Israel has enough nukes to make a ring of craters around itself?

Let’s take a calm, close look, here. On the one hand, we have a nation that’s just now reached the Pinky And The Brain stage of nuclear development; on the other, a nation with at least 200 functional nuclear weapons of various types — most of which were supplied by the USA — on standby, ready to light the place up. Those of us out here who aren’t profoundly retarded can see who the real nuclear threat is here, and would really appreciate it if the US Media would quit jerking us around.
