Stars and Stripes

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket!  On a glorious Thursday morning here in Osterville, I bid you a fair adieu.  The sun was out in full force this morning at Dowses Beach, the birds outnumbering the people, thus far, and cool temperatures begging me to get in my boat and sail…  On the eve of July 4th week end, I thought I might offer some truth to the mud regarding our great country and how a few corporations are hell bent on destroying it.  Our friend Sharron “Angle” appeared on the “Rachel Maddow Show” yesterday, taped, in an interview from the great state of Nevada where she is running against Harry Reid, the current Senator and House leader.  The interview needs to be transcribed, in English, although I’m not sure what language she was speaking, and thus quoted, verbatim, so that it can be seen in full transparent glory, a revelation of sorts for anyone who may still have sleepies in their eyes as to the TRUTH of the content of the puppets flooding the docket for upcoming congressional and senate races up for grabs in the fall.  This is the first real interview, with a real reporter who asks real questions, as opposed to the softballs offered by “fair and balanced” FOX NEWS, since a reporter followed Angle out to the parking lot asking questions about what she really meant when she uttered the threatening words, “second amendment remedies.”  Or, as lead muppet John, “Billy Bob,” Boehner (R-OH), the leader of the House minority, stated in his recent interview with the Pittsburgh Tribune Review, proving his ignorance on the issues when he responded to a question about the moratorium on deep water drilling with, “they don’t need to stop all the drilling.”  Boehner went on to say in this interview, and I must quote him, “The democrats are snuffing out the America that I grew up in…right now, we’ve got more Americans engaged in their government than at any time in our history.  There’s a political rebellion brewing, and I don’t think we have seen anything like it since 1776.”  Billy Bob making a real honest to goodness threat, implying that if you don’t give us what we want, “we will blow your head off!”  Is that what you are implying Mr. Boehner and Ms. “Angle”?  Again, let’s go to the video tape! Without further adieu, here is the interview, word for word, hosted by the Dean of Nevada journalism on his program, “Face to Face”, Mr. Jon Ralston.  And Action! Jon:  “I’d like to clear up some of the issues, we’re going to start with social security, and show you an interview done by KNPR before the elections (primaries)… Ms. Angle on social security:  “Whenever I say privatize, I don’t mean governmental privatization.  I mean actual free market privatization.  There is a place where you can present your idea and you say we’re going to privatize over a period of years.  Help me out there.  What is a period of years?  That you think we should have?  Those are the things that are up for grabs.  Now are we going to privatize?  That is not up for grabs.  The idea of privatization and getting out of medicare and social security is not up for grabs.”  Jon:  “So that’s what you said before the primary…last Friday you said, this…  Angle:  “I’m here to save social security, we have to get someone who understands (not her) the salvation of social security is to lock the lock box (by putting it into the crooked hands of “free market” banks) keeping the government from raiding it (not true), as well as put some real money in there, not IOU’s.”  Jon:  “OK, you have to explain, this seems like a contradiction in terms.”  Angle:  “No, I don’t think so, you know we have seniors who are on social security, who paid into a social security lock box and figured there would be money in that lock box for retirement as they go forward and we know that the lock box has been raided (Bush/Cheney) and pillaged by Harry Reid and his cronies in Washington (classic projection and falsehood) so all that is left is IOU’s so I…”  Jon:  “That is just not true, there is plenty of money in the social security.  I just read a report by the Trustees that indicated that it IS funded to the year 2039.  Taking it out of the lock box and throwing it into the “free market” (crooked Wall Street) without any governmental regulations is what you are talking about.”  Angle:  “I didn’t say that, the money in the lock box needs to stay in the lock box, for senior citizens (nice talking point) and I disagree with you (because I was lied to by my corporate masters, don’t yell at me, I’m just a stooge) I think there is no money in those lock boxes, I think they are all IOU’s, but going forward (another memorized talking point) we know that it is not going to be available to younger workers, and we need (for our own bankrolls) them to personalize (bend over for the “free market”) and that’s kind of an expanded way to say you can do it, in a privatized manner or you can do it (clearly she has an acute insight into the situation) like they did through the federal government you know through Harry Reid’s employees here, which is a personalized account that does not allow the government to come in and raid the lock box (third time for that talking point, she needs to spread them out a little, she sounds mentally challenged) and that’s really what all of us should have, something we can count on (except the poor of course, they can go f#$k themselves).”  Jon:  “You’re saying that lock box more than Al Gore ever did.  The point is, you want to throw this into the private sector to rule.  Now if that had been in force, the “sharron angle plan”, if that had been in force a couple of years ago, millions of seniors would have lost all their money.”  Angle:  “No, that is not true.”  Jon:  “Of course it IS!”  Angle:  “No, it isn’t because, as we go “go forward” (talking point courtesy to word doctors.com) with this thing of personalizing those accounts (by draining them) I’m not the only one who feels this way (we know) so do (my evil corporate masters and the mean old men in Washington D.C. who, to be quite frank with you, scare me a little bit) we all…  Paul Ryan has his road map (a bank heist of the aging population) that he feels this way (I speak English not good so), yeah, somehow we need to offer younger employees (repeated talking point number two, for the third time) some kind of, really, something that everyone admits is not going to be around in 27 years.”  Jon:  “Let’s talk about jobs, here’s what you recently said, “people ask me, what are you going to do to develop jobs in your state, well, that’s not my job as a U.S. Senator, to bring industry to the state, that’s the lieutenant Governors job, that’s your state Senator’s job, the Assemblyman’s job, that’s your secretary of state’s job (my job is to “play” Senator and vote with the party line, that is the corporate line) to make a climate here in this state, ya’ll come!”   Jon:  “yeah, I can understand that, yet here is how you blame Harry Reid for not bringing jobs to Nevada…”  previous interview with Angle as she states, “Harry Reid has been water boarding (paging Dr. Freud) our economy with high unemployment, with foreclosure rates, even to the point where to Obama whisperers (did Robert Redford sign off on that clear breach of royalties) agreed with Harry Reid that if you come to Las Vegas you’re coming on a junket.  What really matters to Nevadans is they need jobs, they need to know they can stay in their home (although I could not care less about that, but don’t quote me on that one).  Jon:  “Here again, you want it both ways, it’s not the job of a U.S. Senator to create jobs, but then you blame Harry Reid for not creating jobs.  Angle:  “Certainly, certainly the job of the U.S. Senator is to create a clomate (not a misspelling, she said the word “clomate”) that will be conducive to creating jobs which means lower taxes and less government regulation (congrats, Angle, you just nailed two talking points in one sentence), but Harry Reid has been doing is putting “forward” (she just loves the word “forward”, I think it’s her favorite talking point “word”) those policies that actually put more regulation (another fav) on business (talking point number 3-hat trick) Obamacare for one has put in so many regulations now that they are having to choose, and they’re choosing that they cannot provide jobs (I think she needs her clarity medication), so what has happened, as what he has been the point, remember that the President can only propose, Harry Reid has disposed of all this legislation, the stimulus, that supposed to keep unemployment down, below 8 percent (talking point #4, you go girl), well now, it is over 14 percent, and we’re deeper in debt, so really I lay that all at Harry Reid’s footstep, because he has been the one…”  Jon:  “Harry Reid has created all kinds of jobs, don’t you read the papers? You are not going to give him any credit for that?”  Angle:  “no, not really.”  and cut, print and wrap this one up for posterity’s sake and put a bow on it. This is the “party of hell no” and to get the full taste of the stupidity, greed, fear mongering and general ugliness of this group who are in the eternal grip of their corporate overlords, can make one physically sick to the stomach.  Your threats to our nation, real physical threats, that you play off as just another metaphor, are shameful, dangerous and irresponsible, not to mention criminal.  As millions of barrels of crude oil sit in the sub-surface of the Gulf, in tiny microcarbon globs that one cannot see with the naked eye, all by bp design, through the banned substance called corexit 3500, (that was and is mixed in with the gushing out of control oil at the source) with the purpose being to make the oil “appear” as if it were not as bad as IT IS, delaying the effort to truly tackle this monumental disaster and crime to the environment we ALL LIVE IN is no longer a laughing matter.  The p.o.h.n. is a group of men, mostly, who care nothing for facts, and live their pathetic lives under the rule of a corporate code, modus operandi, PROFIT OVER PEOPLE!  Sing it loud you crazy rightwingnut savages…in the end, what will be YOUR LEGACY?       GOD’S SPEED to the GULF! and all of the people, sea creatures, BROWN PELICANS and marsh lands therein… Have a nice Thursday folks!  Peace~M
