Well, well

Some shit going down in the world right now, isn’t there. I’m sure you have heard of the Occupy Wall Street protest, which has been going on for, what, a month now? Seven hundred or so of the protesters were arrested Saturday after the NYPD herded them onto the bridge then trapped them there. Oh wait, sorry, that can’t be right. The NYPD wouldn’t tell people to march onto a bridge so traffic would be blocked in an attempt to turn the public against them, right? Another question is how long will the media continue to be a part of this? The New York Times first reported that the marchers were allowed onto the bridge and were then cut off by police. Twenty minutes later it appears word down from on high and the report was changed. Now the protesters marched out on the bridge and caused a showdown with police. See for yourself here. But just remember, the internet exists. Stuff like this can make you increasingly obsolete as a news source.

Let’s face it, people are getting good and pissed off. These companies, in bed with the government who gave them the deregulation they wanted, caused the whole fucking mess then went crying with their hands out. Oh sure, one or two were allowed to go bankrupt or put up for sale, but that just seems like it was done for appearances sake, doesn’t it? And now these same mammoth corporations who were begging for funds a short time ago are now posting record profits, getting massive tax refunds and yet barely pay any taxes. And if you don’t want to believe it, let Senator Bernie Sanders tell you. For example:  In 2009 Exxon Mobile made $19 billion in profits, paid no federal income taxes and took a $156 million rebate from the IRS. What about you? Do you get a refund when you pay no taxes? No? Why should they? The only wonder is why more people aren’t fucking pissed off and marching on Wall Street.

What else is going on? Oh yeah, Israel has its panties in a twist because Palestine is asking the UN for recognition as a state. Don’t know about you but I don’t see the big issue. They should be their own country. Course, one of the issues is they want the old two state borders, which would split Jerusalem in two. Israeli’s are saying, uh uh that’s our fucking city. Which I guess it is. But yeah, the Palestinians spent a lot of time there too. When you boil it down, this is just one big fucking family feud that makes the Hatfields and McCoys look like pussies. Although I don’t think this one started over a pig.

Anything else? Oh yeah. Nancy Grace, you flashed some fucking nipple. Wasn’t that great so shut up about it. Please let’s move on. Not like it was Hope Solo’s nipple. Another thing, I don’t give a rat’s ass about where Casey Anthony is or what she is doing. It’s over. Nothing to be done about it now. Find an actual story to report on.

I think that’s good for now. I’m going to go hug my son. It always helps get rid of these urges to build a Death Star.
