"The action I am taking is no more than a radical measure to hasten the explosion of truth and justice. I have but one passion: to enlighten those who have been kept in the dark, in the name of humanity which has suffered so much and is entitled to happiness. My fiery protest is simply the cry of my very soul. Let them dare, then, to bring me before a court of law and let the enquiry take place in broad daylight!" - Emile Zola, J'accuse! (1898) -

Official Response to Troopergate Findings Continues to Confound Reality, Basic Logic




I’m very, very pleased to be cleared of any legal wrongdoing, any hint of of any kind of unethical activity.

But, um, no you weren’t. The very first finding of the report is that you violated state law. Seriously. It’s on page 8. Anyone can go and read it. I mean, Jesus Christ. This is downright stunning.


Of all the lies of this campaign season–and there have been plenty of whoppers–this has to be the most brazen. Imagine Bill Clinton, back in 1998, being impeached, and then holding a press conference to tell America that he was relieved that Congress had elected not to impeach him.


This is 2+2=5 territory. The fact that a major party presidential campaign even thinks that they can say this sort of thing and still have a chance at winning an election is evidence of a profoundly unhealthy democracy.


This Makes more sense!


A little boy goes to his dad and asks, 'What is Politics?'

Dad says, 'Well son, let me try to explain it this way:

I am the head of the family, so call me The President.

Your mother is the administrator of the money, so we call her the Government.

We are here to take care of your needs, so we will call you the People.

The nanny, we will consider her the Working Class.

And your baby brother, we will call him the Future.

Now think about that and see if it makes sense.'

So the little boy goes off to bed thinking about what Dad has said.

Later that night, he hears his baby brother crying, so he gets up to check on him.

He finds that the baby has severely soiled his diaper.

So the little boy goes to his parents' room and finds his mother asleep. 

Not wanting to wake her, he goes to the nanny's room. Finding the door locked, he peeks in the keyhole and sees his father in bed with the nanny.

He gives up and goes back to bed.

The next morning, the little boy says to his father, 'Dad, I think I understand the concept of politics now.'

The father says, 'Good, son, tell me in your own words what you think politics is all about.'

The little boy replies, 'The President is screwing the Working Class while  The Government is sound asleep & The People  are being ignored and the Future is in deep shit.
