From the VOMITORIUM
Warning: Some may find this post offensive…read at your own risk….and BTW….you were warned!
I wrote this post days ago and saved it as a draft with the hope that I would not need to post it….but this whole photo thing has gone from ludicrous to down right f*cking absurd….so my decision was made for me…..
I find all this a bit irksome that a news story is driven by pea brain ass wads and that includes the mainstream media as well as bloggers……..E-f*cking-nough!
Personally, I am weary of all this back and forth of a NON-STORY! It is being driven by morons that are so afraid that their 15 minutes will fade and they will become just another insignificant, worthless lump of shit!!
For almost a week now there has been raging debate on whether the Prez should release the photos of OBL dead…..Some say it is a neglect of the “mission” to Not release them…..and others say that it makes no difference…he is dead…the end of it!
You would think that being told by the admin that OBL has been killed would be enough….but NOOOOO……no matter what this Prez does he is wrong or lying or what ever the extreme pundits want to call it……but let me ask…if GW had said he had been killed would we be having this conversation? Be honest! You know DAMN well we would not!
OK, one more time and then it is said! Prez says he was killed……Clinton says he is dead…….Gates said he was shot….Panetta say he is no more…..and finally, AQ has issued a statement on his death…..AQ admits OBL is DEAD! (insert news flash here)…..ERGO OBL IS DEAD! (Surprise!)
Now if that is NOT enough for you then I say find someone to prove he is still alive…..he is an idea…..Let Andrew Breitbart and his little weasel f*cker that thinks he is a filmmaker go to the area and get some “real” photos of OBL walking around…….we know that will NOT happen because 1–he is a coward and 2-…..thinking…..there is NO 2, 1 pretty much sums it up…..
This story is over…only pencil dick ass wipes want this to continue…..it helps drive the news away from the dismal crap their cronies are doing in the Congress…the people that these frauds address are the lowest denominator of Americans….those that still cannot accept a black man as the president of their country…..
Get over it! The murdering bastard is dead! You may not like it…..but there is the truth…..maybe Mr. Breitbart can prove me wrong…….(raucous laughter ensues)……
Note: There are times when I cannot try to be civil….I regret that I sink to this level…..just cannot help it….. If you were offended too bad……you were warned!
Middle East Desk
While you sleeping or celebrating Mom’s Day or just arguing on the validity of OBL’s death….there is an occurrence in the Middle East that might be good news for those who HATE Iran…..that little dude, Ahmadinejad, the Pres of Iran, seems to be a bit of hot water with the ruling clerics….
The much maligned Al-Jazeera is reporting….
A dramatic feud at the highest level of Iran’s government appears to be intensifying, with speculation that president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad may be preparing to resign.
The speculation stems from a political dispute between Ahmadinejad and the country’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.
Ahmadinejad sacked the country’s intelligence chief, Heydar Moslehi last month, in a move that Khamenei quickly overruled, reinstating Moslehi.
Following the move, the president effectively went absent without leave, skipping cabinet meetings for 10 days in anger over the reinstatement.
Al Jazeera’s Dorsa Jabbari, reporting from the Iranian capital, Tehran on Sunday, said the president’s decision to skip cabinet meetings is unprecedented in the country, where the supreme leader wields more power than the president and appoints military leaders and the council that passes laws.
“There was a lot of criticism from different camps in this country about his behaviour. He was … accused of allegedly defying the supreme leader, [which is] equivalent to defying God in this country,” she said.
Now this could be a good thing……he could be replaced with a more reform minded person….or it could be even worse…….this story is a good one for us people that enjoy the new found importance of the Middle East….something besides the price of oil….that is……more to come….keep reading…..
College of Political Knowledge
Weekend is over…back to the grind…….
I try to help people understand what is going on in American politics and the world…….I recently wrote a post entitled “argumentum ad populum….basically it is if you say something long enough it becomes true….type of thinking…..read it for yourself….
It explains the rhetoric on the cable news channels……I got to thinking about a logic class I took about a billion years ago and another phenom came to mind…..argumentum ad hominem…..
In logic, the argumentum ad hominem is typically described as having the following form:
- A makes claim B.
- There is something objectionable about A.
- Therefore, claim B is false.
There are three basic forms of argumentum ad hominem:
- Ad hominem abusive; also called argumentum ad personam. Instead of attacking an assertion, the argument attacks the person who made the assertion.
- Ad hominem circumstantial: Instead of attacking an assertion, the attacker points to the relationship between the person making the assertion and the person’s circumstances.
Ad hominem tu quoque: Literally translated as, “at the person, you too,” this could be called the “hypocrisy” argument. In this form of attack, one argues that the person does not practice what he or she preaches.
Now think about any news that you may listen to on a daily basis…..does any of it sound anything like what I described? Then think about the political talking points….if you look closely they follow this line of thinking almost every time….
As much as I would like to think of myself as “fair and balanced”…I do succumb to this from time to time….I think all writers and analysts do….it is part of the beast of analysis…..ALL TV analysts are guilty of this…regardless of which side of the political spectrum one stands…..
We as consumers of the news, must know these things and learn to look for the truth in ALL political statements….it may be there or it may be a total fabrication of the facts…if we do not search of the truth then we are destined to make totally irrational decisions about the governance of our nation….and we are seeing just how disastrous this could be……we are making decisions based on total untrue and falsified data….it is in its infancy right now….but the beast is growing rapidly and if not exposed to the cleansing light of truth….then all will be lost and this democracy will exist NO MORE!
