Award-winning photographer David Slater had his camera hijacked by a crested black macaque in Indonesia, which took its own picture. The animal is extremely rare and endangered, which makes this big macaque attack picture all the more special.

Perhaps learning a lesson from the scolding we gave them in , the kkkristian child porn spammers ceased  to spam child porn and began spamming spurious advertising spam – still by the boatload, no less annoying, but at least they’ve gone from child porn to simple larceny and bunko scams. We don’t know if this is really an improvement on the list of Seven Deadly Sins, or whatever witchery they consult to determine meanness, pettiness and spite (or perhaps to learn it from), however it is slightly less offensive than outright sleaze, and far more tolerable than outright prostitution of the truly innocent. We remain unconvinced that these kkkristians are genuinely “holy” in any sense. Forgiveness and tolerance didn’t make it into their lexicon (lexicon being a hard word for them to pronounce, I suspect), and they have little, if any,  sense of charity.  Kkkristians are strictly old-school, fire and brimstone Old Testament wannabe prophets who firmly intend to kill all opposition in the name of their unholy god.  Contrary to their self-profession, Kkkristians are neither redeemable, nor salvageable, but rather doomed to wallow in their own crapulence.  In the split second it takes to delete their importunate silliness, we note that they are adamantly against climate change too, however their god seems unable to do much about it, since we also note that climate change is disastrously proceeding, their disbelief notwithstanding.  Oh, hey, now wait a minute, we think we get it! Their god is an ostrich!

Righteousness and militarism always combine in a corporatist dominated state. Someone always wants to be the "Boss of Everything."

Corporate Statism


William L. Shirer, Rise and Fall of the Third Reich.  Simon & Schuster.

“…Hitler organized a bunch of roughneck war veterans into ‘strong-arm’ squads…These uniformed rowdies… soon took to breaking up [meetings] of other parties.  Hitler told an audience, ‘The National Socialist Movement will in the future ruthlessly prevent – if necessary by force – all meetings or lectures that are likely to distract the minds of our fellow countrymen.’”

Frank Schaeffer, AlterNet: writer and author of Crazy for God: How I Grew Up As One Of The Elect, Helped Found The Religious Right, And Lived To Take All (Or Almost All) Of It Back.

Here’s the emerging American version of the fascist’s formula: combine millions of dollars of lobbyists’ money with embittered troublemakers who have a small army of not terribly bright white angry people (collected over decades through pro-life mass mailing networks) at their beck and call, ever ready to believe any myth or lie circulated by the semi literate and completely and routinely misinformed right wing Evangelical religious underground. Then put his little mob together with the insurance companies’ big bucks. That’s how it works — American Brown Shirts at the ready.  Republican leaders taking insurance industry money and organizing what amounts to roving bands of thugs not only need to be exposed but should also become absolute pariahs.

The Lobbyist-run Groups “Americans for Prosperity ” and “FreedomWorks” Dick Armey-Orchestrated Memo:

Here is a leaked excerpt from the folks organizing the intimidation campaign:

  • Artificially Inflate Your Numbers: “Spread out in the hall and try to be in the front half. The objective is to put the Rep on the defensive with your questions and follow-up. The Rep should be made to feel that a majority, and if not, a significant portion of at least the audience, opposes the socialist agenda of Washington.”
  • Be Disruptive Early And Often: “You need to rock-the-boat early in the Rep’s presentation, Watch for an opportunity to yell out and challenge the Rep’s statements early.”
  • Try To “Rattle Him,” Not Have An Intelligent Debate: “The goal is to rattle him, get him off his prepared script and agenda. If he says something outrageous, stand up and shout out and sit right back down. Look for these opportunities before he even takes questions.”

The “Scorched Earth Policy”

Dick Armey and company have been driven mad by their reversal, not just of political fortunes but of seeing that they’ve wasted their lives. They now know they were wrong about: the country, the free market, war for fun and profit, and what the American people really want. They made their best case and were rejected by the American people — and by history. Bush was their man and he turned out to be a fool. So now all the Republican gurus have left is what the defeated Germans of World War Two had: a scorched earth policy. If they can’t win then everyone must go down. Obama must fail! The country must fail!

No, I don’t believe that these people are about to take over the country. No, the sky is not falling. But the Republican Party is. It is now profoundly anti-American.

Put religion in its rightful place, not in the government. J. Legry, 2011.

If the marching morons of the western fundamentalist religious traditions stopped momentarily to exercise even the barest minimum of free individual thought, they would immediately realize that in structure, purpose and results, the forces they support fulfill the mission of their imagined Anti-Christ or its sectarian apocalyptic equivalent. One can argue that the fundamentalist marching morons are the people they themselves prophesied who follow the WRONG master, necessitating and aiding the Arch Fiend’s attack on all virtue and goodness in the world. The kkkristians are the armies of Satan, Shaitan, the bad guy. The fundamentalist marching morons are ignorant superstitious dupes who hurt other people at the direction of their sick as hell masters.
