Crazy is as Crazy does

Everything went bat shit crazy today in America.

Michele Bachmann
, Congressional skank from Minnesota unleashed a cornucopia of retards on Washington DC. She told the throng of lobotomy candidates to storm the congressional halls and "scare" their representatives.

Fortunately, half were so old (most on socialized medicine called Medicare) they could not make it up the steps. The rest were too stupid to find the building and ended up rolling in the grass and sniffing each others anuses.

Still a few were mentally and physically capable of getting themselves arrested outside of Nancy Pelosi's office. Threatening a member of Congress is always a good thing to put on one's job application. Shows you play well with others.

Like all Tea Bag events there was no end to the number of offensive, combative, and racist signs and chants.

Sadly, this was not the top story in the new Insane America. Major Nidal Malik Hasan, a military psychiatrist walked into Fort Hood's Soldier Readiness Center and emptied two hand guns into his fellow soldiers. So far 13 soldiers are dead and many are wounded. Hasan is said to be wounded but still alive.

The details are very sketchy at this point (several hours after the event) and I'm sure you're are already aware of the tragedy so there's no point in rehashing it here.

But here's what I think is happening. We're going crazy. After eight years of George W. Rat Turd and Dick Smacker Cheney, Americans have completely lost any connection to how normal people are supposed to act. I would call it mass aberrant behavior, but aberrant behavior is stuff that happens outside of social norms. I can't think of anything .. anymore that's considered outside of the acceptable.

An old treatment (and still used today) for cancer is ingesting arsenic. The theory being that cancer cells are weaker and less resistant than normal cells. So, you give just enough poison to kill the cancer cells but leave the normal cells alive.

I think something similar is happening to us. You can see it - right? The damaged people, the weak minded, socially inept, emotionally disabled are starting to unravel. This is the start to a much bigger problem.

The question is - what is the poison that killing our society?

It is Sunday night - well really it is Monday morning, even with the time change. But who cares? This post is just a hodgepodge of stuff to flush down the political toilet before the week begins. So, if you're ready here it goes:


"It hasn't been a great year for democracy in Africa" - Reed Brody, an officer at Human Rights Watch, on the Mo Ibrahim Foundation's decision not to award its annual 5 million dollar prize for good governance to any African government. - source

Yes, Africa is sucking ass right now. There are Zimbabwe Conflict Diamonds, Egyptian Trash Pigs, Somali Pirates, Red Cross Kidnapped in Sudan, Guinea Blood, and Chad Kills Aid And this is just today's news.

I know Africa is big - I mean really big, but it seems like the whole continent has gone down the crapper. Africa has all it needs to be healthy and wealthy. When will Africa finally free itself from the chains of colonization or corporations?

Soccer - South American Style

Soccer players are leaving South America faster than Tony Tirado can say, "Goooooooal". Who could blame them? A couple of weeks ago and entire soccer team from Columbia was kidnapped and killed.

Robinho a Brazilian soccer star had just signed a contract with Real Madrid when his mother was kidnapped by armed thugs and held for ransom. Robinho reportedly paid $83,000 for his mother's release.

Grafite's, another soccer player from Brazil, mother was kidnapped soon after the abduction of Robinho's mother.

Argentinian player, Juan Roman Riquelme's brother was kidnapped in 2004 and held for 24 hours until the ransom was paid by the family.

Kidnappings and armed robbery against soccer players is rampant all across South America and Mexico. Soccer players are packing up their balls and families and moving to Europe and England where it's safer and more profitable.


"I'm not a racist. I just don't believe in mixing the races that way" - Keith Bardwell, justice of the peace in Tangipahoa Parish, Louisiana, explaining why he refused to marry of mixed race couple.

If a person feels obligated to say they're not a racists, chances are they're a racist. It's just that simple.

Other Stuff

There is no such thing as money.

The real trouble starts when China starts getting involved in Kashmir.

If Hamid Karzai was in Vegas he'd be the front man for a mob run casino.
