Andrew Card Gets Proper “Honors” At UMass…

Posted by jeremiasx on May 26, 2007

Former Bush Chief of Staff Andrew Card found out what those in the days of yore must have felt when they had rotten tomatoes hurled at them by the masses. I hope he got a good dose.

The clip gets good about halfway through as a majority of the honors students and a number of faculty on stage join in the lambasting of this villainous viper. Enjoy.

We’re Using MORE Gas?!? Huh?

Posted by jeremiasx on May 22, 2007

Ok, which of you assholes out there is being a hog and driving MORE now that gas has risen by another 15 cents a gallon JUST OVER THE WEEKEND? Oh you say you aren’t driving more, but less now? Well that’s not what the oil companies are saying…check it out.

The oil companies are giving the following three reasons for increased gas prices.

  1. Refinery Outages
  2. Lower Fuel Imports
  3. Higher Consumption by Consumers

Ok…so we’ve all paid in an extra $20 BILLION dollars this year in added fuel costs, as a nation…what are they doing with all that extra money? Are they building refineries? Are they repairing existing facilities? What the hell is going on here?

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The jump in U.S. gasoline prices this year has so far drained consumers of an extra $20 billion, or about $146 for each passenger car in the country, the Government Accountability Office told Congress on Tuesday.

The national price for regular unleaded gasoline hit a record $3.22 a gallon this week, and is up $1.05 since the beginning of February, according to the Energy Department.

It makes me sick to think of all the money we are collectively being forced to turn over to these robber barons who are bending us over and making us like it. Somehow I don’t think that the present administration is going to do much about it. Enjoy the high gas. Suckers.

Scientists Gather To Blast Bush Administration…

Posted by jeremiasx on May 14, 2007

bushmicroscope.jpg

 

The Bush administration has interfered with the work of scientists to such a degree that they have rebuked his efforts in one of the strongest shows of patriotism and fervor for the truth that I have seen in many years. They gathered in a forum today in Washington to discuss the need for more protection for whistleblowers and to attempt to shine the light of accountability upon the villainy of the current and past administrations and its corporate cronies.

The collusion of the US Government and various industries (tobacco, health care, and many other various product industries) stretches the line between criminality and complacency to new limits from time to time, and some of the most celebrated cases were again brought out to tell us what we’ve known but not seemed willing to do much about for years. We’re all being duped and lied to and the current administration along with many in the past have set up the population to remain uninformed or misinformed about a variety of simple truths.

Historical allegations aside, I’m trying to remember a time when I ever heard of any type of serious interference on such a level throughout the scientific community, other than localized instances and even then usually dealing with well-known ethical issues or the government generally refusing to fund projects. Those effects were damaging enough to the pursuit of science, but to understand the scope of the current level of interference I think we should pay attention when we are told by credible academics and other notable members of the scientific community that over 450 climate scientists claimed there was a demonstrable interference with their work for obvious political reasons by the Bush administration. That is just ONE sector of the scientific community, and those numbers along with thousands of others from several agencies paint a grim picture of a government which is not acting in the interest of the people by suppressing and altering the truth. The Bush administration was the focus today, and the evidence overwhelmingly indicts them as meddling partisan dimwits who believe the scientific community is filled with pushovers and geeks who would quietly submit to its egregious and unsolicited influence.

In a free society, how can the truth be known if the truth can not be sought out without the manipulation of partisan political influence? In matters of public interest, when there is a compelling reason to do so (such as not allowing the live dissection of death row inmates…I know that’s preposterous but it illustrates my point while not being as “grey” as stem-cell research) only in those instances should the government interfere in ANY level of the scientific process.

The other factor alluded to by today’s participants, and I reiterate it because it is applicable to the lives of some of my friends…is a chilling effect when it comes to pursuing careers in the scientific disciplines. Imagine you are a recent graduate of a university with a science degree and an ambition to study the world and report newly discovered truths or evidences to your fellow man…if you are entering the job market in the next two years of the Bush reign of intellectual perversion and subversion what can you expect to encounter upon your quest? Maybe something like what’s happened to most of your contemporaries who make these continual allegations…grants being pulled without cause or notice, people with questionable academic credentials refuting your work for the sake of political commentary, or just getting completely shut down with ideologically misguided legislation or even simple signing statements by the Executive Branch…is this a viable milieu for the fostering of scientific progress? Who wants to grow up to be part of a phony political agenda as a puppet or a paid (or muted) mouthpiece in the scientific community instead of being allowed to pursue the dream of all those who dream of exploration, discovery, and innovation? The inherent danger is that the will of the government might supplant the necessity of discovery and the dissemination of truth with its own questionable agenda and that is unacceptable on any logical level in the context of education or scientific research.

I’ve traditionally imagined what a government-manipulated scientific community would look like as something distant such as in the times of the Inquisition or the repression of the schools in ancient Athens. There was obvious exertion of undue influence by the government in those eras upon the wills and characters which were involved in those times and instances…history accounts, indicts, and forewarns of all these mishaps and travesties… I never imagined such a repressive environment existing in my own time and generation. It’s like a bad Twilight Zone episode. Though we may sometimes be unaware of our destiny, it’s not hard to envision the consequences of allowing this type of evil to continue without rebuke and revolt. The scientists who gathered today to speak out against it are heroes.

Attorney-Gate Continues

Posted by jeremiasx on May 12, 2007

WELL…we’re into several months now of the scandal which has been dubbed “Attorney-Gate” by the majority of the blogosphere and MSM…and what do we know so far?

1. 8 U.S. Attorneys were fired in an unprecedented mid-term “Saturday Night Massacre” style by the Department of Justice, headed by former Bush counsel Alberto Gonzales.

2. In attempting to explain the misrepresentation of an interim appointment to Arkansas senator Mark Pryor, Alberto Gonzales and the higher-ups at the Justice Department lied to a member of Congress about their intentions for the placement of Tim Griffin, close friend and associate of Karl Rove. Mark Pryor has called Alberto Gonzales a liar on the floor of the U.S. Senate, a charge which Mr. Gonzales has denied vehemently, saying he did not “lie” but “misspoke.”

3. Attorney General Gonzales “misspoke” to the entire nation in a press conference that HE called to claim complete ignorance of the attorney firings, a charge which he now admits to, after reviewing the mountain of evidence which points to the fact that HE knew and OTHERS knew both in the White House and the DOJ that the attorney firings were going to cause, “political fallout.” Senator Arlen Specter called Gonzales to task and called him everything but a liar in a congressional inquiry.

4. Monica Goodling, graduate extraordinaire of Regent University, a right-wing college founded by Pat Robertson which ranks in the lowest tier of law schools yet boasts the highest number of Bush administration appointees, will be compelled to testify after being granted immunity by Congress and pleading the Fifth Amendment. (Presumably to prevent herself from being prosecuted for CRIMES in the firings or their cover-up.)

For those of you who haven’t kept track, it’s been an interesting play and there have been plenty of bombshells and resignations, but the ultimately guilty parties still walk around in the halls of power with impunity. C’est la vie.

I hope for a little more illumination and a little less bullshit in the coming week of the investigation. Let’s see if Goodling can deliver the goods on Gonzales. (I like that.)

Open Letter To My Congressman

Posted by jeremiasx on May 2, 2007

To The Honorable John Boozman,

George Bush has suggested sweeping changes the the 1978 FISA act that he CLAIMS will allow our national intelligence resources greater leverage and latitude in pursuing “terrorists” to “secure the homeland.” I strongly oppose this amendment to FISA…the administration of George Walker Bush has already proven itself UNWORTHY of the tools which were given to it to “fight terrorism.” The war on terror has largely been a farce (it’s a snazzy name for doing things we’ve been doing for years, coupled with a staunch militaristic nationalism that borders on overzealous neo-fascism.)

We have seen the FBI abuse National Security Letters, we’ve seen the NSA abuse wiretapping cases without operating through existing FISA laws (even though FISA turns virtually NO one down for a warrant) and it seems to most level-headed Americans that this Executive Branch has overstepped its authority and constitutional powers by a level which confounds reason and inspires great distrust by the common citizen against his own government. Was this an intentional outcome?

George Bush is a criminal and MUST BE IMPEACHED (I thank you for your response to my suggestion in my last correspondence, and though I know you’re probably walking that partisan line – at least you honored me with a response, and I appreciate that.) If you in Congress are hell-bent on allowing him to stay in power, then he must not be allowed to further subvert the civil liberties of our citizens by yet another attempt at shredding safeguards like FISA. If he is successful…if you allow this…there WILL be consequences. People are getting VERY fed up. I have written our Arkansas senators to let them know that they stand on the verge of losing the confidence of the American People if they can not stand up to this petty tyrant, and I’m going to extend that promise to you personally.

Congress needs to do it’s job…the upper echelon of society is doing well enough and the military-industrial complex is fat and happy, and the investors are doing cartwheels…now, so the legislature should turn it’s attention on how to help the other 90% of society… NOW…you’ve alienated the REST of the country, and WE are the majority. Some of us are NOT silent, and will not be. Justice shall be served. I swear by my own blood that I will not rest until the level of criminality that is pandemic within our current government apparatus is exposed to the masses and rectified by the same…that Truth and The People may prevail. (By the way, I always use nonviolent methods of expression so don’t worry about my fiery rhetoric…it’s harmless until people who listen to me decide they’ve all had enough of this game as well and refuse to operate within the due bounds of law…but I always suggest people obey the law, of course.)

Thank you for your service to the people of Arkansas and I thank you in advance for your defense of the principles which were clearly laid out in the Constitution of the United States of America. We The People deserve adequate representation, and that means that YOU will have to stand your ground against the Executive Branch to insure a reasonable expectation of privacy for all law-abiding US Citizens (which is the problem with the new “anti-terror laws” which devolve our society another step closer to a POLICE STATE…they allow too many transgressions upon the rights of the people without oversight or any type of NORMAL jurisprudence.)

I’m very concerned…we all should be.

Sincerely,

Jeremias X (real letter was signed with my real name, of course)
