    Unhappy Neocons

    Might not be “neo” anymore…always will be CONs.

    Been thinking about them a lot lately, with Donny Rumsfeld and Colin Powell being recalled to whatever pit of hell they slipped out of…pretty sure American “history” ain’t teaching our kids enough about these demons.

    I am constantly thinking about how great this world is without them (and some fucking Medal “winner” Rush Limbaugh), am a little nervous their history will be whitewashed like everything else over here.

    Anyways, I am watching Sunday Night (American) football, where CONdi Rice is sitting with the Indianapolis Colt’s owner (who’s a real piece of shit in his own right) in San Fransisco…and the fucking commentators cannot stop blowing her…and everyone in the NFL that’s ever talked to her. It’s sickening

    Dubya enjoying Ellen blowing him, and getting a whole whitewashing of his history…and Big Dick Cheney apparently living forever, somehow in the shadows now, it makes me lose any hope. We are so fucked. I really hate this empire (sad emoji)

    History ain't teaching our kids anything that might make them feel bad. This would include false flags leading to war, lies and genocide, slavery, racism and more!

    Fun times with the ignorance being pushed and teachers being fired for teaching difficult subjects.

    Ignorance of the populace is one major step towards fascism.

    Reagan said that facts are stupid.

    Gingrich said to repeat lies over and over so folks would believe, that's how you get votes and power.

    Bush practiced what Colbert named "truthiness".

    Right-wing radio has played fast and loose with he truth since Limbaugh.

    Trump didn't believe in truth. He didn't know how to do anything other than lie and bullshit.

    We've been blithely going down the road of ignorance throughout my adult life.



    Clinton openly lied, got caught and got impeached. He didn't get away with it.

    Or did he?

    Folks say Trump got away with his open law-breaking because he wasn't convicted. Seems he'd been getting away with openly breaking the law for decades.

    Which part is that on the road to fascism?

    I was a kid when these fucks we’re getting pardoned for Iran-contra and covering it up.

    One of the stupid click-baity social media posts asks “what is the first news story you can remember”

    My instinct was Challenger explosion, since we got to watch it on the tv at school, but that was an actual event.

    First news story I remember was announcement of Operation Desert storm. Traumatized from losing so friends to Vietnam, with my dad almost guaranteed to have his number come up the last month of the draft…my mom was crying from fear that I was gonna grow into a kid forced to fight in a pointless war. I was 14

    I recon we been on the road before that, before Nixon…maybe even before Gulf of Tonkin. The “military industrial complex” speech was not a warning, it was describing the state of our government at the time. We been a little bit fascist since probably before then…looks like there’s little hope we go barreling headfirst into cheering it on
