Occupying the GMO Candidates

Alright, gang, time for a double-header! Occupy Monsanto yesterday visited the national headquarters of the GOP and the Democrats on Capitol Hill with a little classic biohazard street theater. Visitors called on GOP nominee Barack Romney to deal with the issue of the revolving door between Monsanto and the government, and called on Democratic incumbent Mitt Obama to keep his ‘08 campaign promises on GMO food labeling.

5 minutes, 40 seconds.

I Am The 47%

By mike flugennockSaturday - September 22nd, 2012Categories: Party Animals, elections, media, right wingnuts

By this time, I trust most of you have seen the infamous Mitt Romney video in which he writes off 47% of the voters — especially those of you who watch MSNBC, who’s been replaying it over and over so many goddamn’ times it’s turned into pornographic wallpaper. The ironic thing is that Mittens got it right, but for the wrong reasons.

While it’s certainly true that at least 47% of voters will vote for Obummer no matter what, it won’t be because of the reasons that Mittens cites — decent healthcare and housing, and such. They’ll vote for Obummer in spite of his picking up where Bush left off — in spite of Obummer’s continuing assaults on civil liberties, his attempts to dismantle Social Security and Medicare, his continued mass murder of civilians overseas, and his bailouts of bankers and Wall Street.

No Liberal in this country has to worry about his home being bombed by drones, or being snatched off the street and indefinitely detained because of any threatening dissident activities, or about the lack of a pension or decent health insurance — so, Liberal America can ignore Obummer’s massive crimes at home and abroad and concentrate on your typical standard-issue affluent Liberal issues, such as gay marriage and abortion rights… and, yes, they’ll vote for Obummer, no matter what.

Blankness You Can Believe In!

By mike flugennockFriday - April 6th, 2012Categories: Obamarama, Party Animals, elections, media

Remember back during the ‘08 Presidential Freak Circus, when everybody was talking about how Obama was a “blank slate” where his acolytes could project any ideas they had about who they thought Obama was (regardless of what he actually was)? What do you mean, “no, me neither”? C’mon, gang…

Well, aaaaanyway… I’d almost forgotten about that “Obama is a blank slate” business myself, until a couple of weeks or so ago, when one of “Mittens” Romney’s key campaign advisors mentioned that the Romney campaign and his conservative principles were like an Etch-A-Sketch, and that you “…can kind of shake it up and restart all over again.”

So, yeah… Obama’s a blank slate you can put anything on that you want and then erase it, and Romney’s like an Etch-A-Sketch that you can… well, put anything on that you want and then erase it.

Jeezus, I just love the spectacle of American Democracy.
