Need I say that one of my male friends sent this on to me? Nevertheless… it’s a gas! THANK YOU! The original caption was, “A photographer will die of old age waiting to get another shot like this one. When a male can’t stand it any more! Priceless shot!” Well, guys… just remember… we don’t get mad… we get EVEN…

THIS is the sort of world that the Republican Party wants… it wants to oppress working people in the Third World to line their pockets (just as they support repressive “Right to Work” laws in the USA). Where did the money from the Republican “tax cuts” go? It went to “outsourcing”. Instead of investing in this country, the fatcats put their money into compliant Third World kleptocracies. The local bully boys brutalised the local work force… until the people could take it no more and they revolted. That’s one of the major reasons why the recent disturbances in the Middle East took place. Can you see why America is hated and the target of terrorists? To end terrorism, we should end the GOP tax cuts to the rich, end our support of dictatorships, and end the outsourcing of American industry (through a reasonable tax policy that would tax domestic investment much less than income from foreign sources)… then, we wouldn’t be seen as oppressors and the supporters of dictators. Shall we do it? I’m NOT holding my breath, kids…

The Patriot Act won’t keep us secure if the USA uses force (either directly or through its proxies) in order to prop up repressive juntas throughout the Third World in order to line greedy businessmen’s pockets. It’s quite that simple…

Georgian MRLs firing indiscriminately at civilian targets in South Ossetia. The MRL is an area weapon, to use it against inhabited civilian neighbourhoods is questionable, at best. Brave guys, weren’t they?

The Georgian aggression was approved by the US Republican Party (and by the Wilsonian interventionist faction amongst the Democrats)… indeed, both John McCain and Randall Schneuermann (his foreign policy advisor) received money from the Saakashvili junta to act as their lobbyists in Washington. If you vote for the Republican Party, you vote for a Party that approves of firing rockets indiscriminately into civilian neighbourhoods and of sneak attacks on one’s neighbours. Bush et al didn’t even offer a toothless censure of Saakashvili for his aggression. Certainly, it puts a new spin on “The War on Terror” and the so-called Patriot Act, doesn’t it?

America has become an ugly country… it’s time for us to return to the Social Market domestic policies of the New Deal and to forgo all foreign military adventurism (by slashing “defence” spending to an absolute minimum)… it does nothing but kill the best of our youth and impoverish our country… all to line the pockets of uncaring and selfish fatcat oligarchs. Let’s stop supporting and egging on tyrants such as Saakashvili…
