Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Afghanistan but Were Afraid to Ask

Holy. Shit.

The traffic for this site is off the chain right now, so it may not load. Be patient or try again, today, tomorrow, the next day.

It doesn't matter when but you should read it. And then realize why our troops should come home.

Now.

Dear President Obama: You Do Not Stand Alone

Dear President Obama,

So, yesterday was not such a good day. The GOP rallied up their troops over at FOX, they got some underdog soldier named Breitbart to fire a volley, that unfortunately, would have fallen well short of your castle walls, had all your frontline soldiers not blinked and scattered.

And I see you...this solitary figure....standing up on top of the castle, watching the volley fall well short of the castle, but all the figures in front of you, running, scattering, fearful...and for an instant you can't help but wonder: Is this all I have to work with?

The answer is no. Just turn around for one instant and you'll see. The rest of us are behind you. In great numbers. Many of us just waiting to push forward, defend and shore up the scattered troops in front.

Make no mistake, this is a battle. Use us. We are here. To fight the good fight, to blog, to talk, to counter and if necessary, burn FOX News to the ground.

But you have to stand with us. And you cannot blink. You have to believe that we won't fall for GOP nonsense. You must believe that the liberal cause is a good one. And you can't keep charting this middle of the road course because sir, everyone knows, the middle of the road is where you get run over by both sides.

But the left side of the road, is ready, willing and waiting for you to lead - and we will march - but you have to be willing to say the word - That the Tea Party has long passed it's 15 minute expiration date. That Van Jones and Shirley Sherrod didn't deserve what they got. That ACORN will be rebuilt and refunded.

That you can no longer be made to be ashamed of being black and President.

No more blinking sir. And know that we're behind you. We voted for you and make no mistake - we will kick ass for you.

Just say the word.

You do not stand alone.

Fuck You Drew Curtis

Got banned from FARK today for pointing out that a lot of white people on FARK are racists. Mainly because their site members posted typically racist ass pictures in one of their Photoshop contests.

White people on FARK are allowed to post anything they want about black people whatsoever short of the N" word which doesn't get them banned, it's merely filtered.

People who point out that this policy is racist get banned. Drew Curtis, like most unenlightened white people, couldn't care less. He's a cowardly racist & misogynist who, like Seth McFarlane of Family Game fame, thinks rape jokes are funny.

So, a big FUCK YOU to Drew Curtis of Fark and second FUCK YOU in general to Seth McFarlane.

It never ceases to amaze me how white people reward their own for being racist and anti-woman.

Burn FOX to the Ground

Before I get to the fact that worthless FOX News needs to be reduced to ashes, I'm going to deal with my own first.

How many other black folks has Obama "distanced" himself from, wrongly, in order to save face?

How many more black people or organizations is Barack Obama willing to allow the right wing machine to destroy "for the greater good"?

How long until we burn the FOX News building to the ground?

If you're not hip, to what happened in the latest fiasco where FOX is spinning the narrative that "black people are more racist than white people" and how the Obama White House fell for it, hook, line and sinker, check it out here.

Our former Commander in Chief said it less eloquently. "Fool me once, shame on you? Me? Fool me once....can't get fooled again."

I'm going to put this smack dab in the lap of whoever is handling Obama's press and right now, they're going it about the wrong way and they look like punks.

From Rev. Wright, to Van Jones, to ACORN and now Shirley Sherrod, Obama is showing that he's willing to cut loose anbody and anything that looks like a "brown people" problem. He may alienate his supposedly "independent" white voters by their disillusion at his not being a magic negro, but the pereception of his black voters is going to quickly become that Obama doesn't want any problems with black folks. We are to stay in line as long he's president and if we don't, he'll drop us like a bad habit.

This too much mirrors the GOP and their "problem" with Michael Steele, and is too close to the Tea Baggers who want anyone that's not white to either get out of the country or "stay in their place". If Obama thinks black folks are going to vote for him by default, he needs to look at what happened to Ken Blackwell in Ohio when he ran for governor.

Obama got punk'd on this one, but he's been fooled too many times now and it makes for a sad view of our commander in chief, huddled in the oval office afraid of being associated with black people. I hate to break it to you Mr. President. You're black. You checked the box on your census already. Deal with it. If Bush can tell Brownie he was doing a "heckuva job", then you can put Shirley Sherrod back on the payroll. That would be a good start. Just admit the mistake AND WHY! It will be a healthy way to talk about race, just quit dodging it already and put it out there. Remember how you handled things at the GOP swap meet in Boston? Hell yeah. Bring out that guy again. We NEED that guy.

All that being said, I'm sick of FOX News controlling the narrative and honestly, I'm ready to head to New York and burn that sucka down. If you really want to start the revolution, it's time to get out in front of that damn building and flush those bastards out. Briebart, O'Reilly, Beck, Hannity and all the rest. Hang the bastards in effigy and keep up the pressure until they recant this bullshit publicly. I want 'em screaming uncle and I want them all fired. Forget going after their sponsors, I want to seem them out of a job. Period.

We need to put the Radical back in front of Left and make these people afraid again. Don't Tread On US.

Boehner, You Orange Inglorious B******


And so, I'm not the only one who's sick of John Boehner's bullshit. It seems the idea of him becoming Speaker of the House is so effing distasteful that some folks are sponsoring a billboard out in West Chester to point out that he's spending more time drinking and playing golf than he is doing whatever the hell he's supposed to be doing as a Congressperson.

So my promise is this: Once the billboard goes up, I will make a daily pilgramage to the billboard and do a dance under the sign for as long as it stays up.

Yep, I hate this Inglorious B****** that much.

This is one promise I intend to keep.
