This morning I noted that Detroit Int’l Airport has a Freedom Lounge with a sign says “Serving Those Who Serve Us.” It’s a special ‘military only’ lounge for the government’s war enforcers. They sure as heck don’t serve me because I don’t conduct the wars they “serve.” Surely the airport doesn’t have an entrepreneur’s lounge, [...]
This is from the greatest hits archive. This one must never be lost for future archeologists.
The hero killer for the state, Chris Kyle, America’s most admired sniper, was killed at a gun range. The New York Times reports: The police identified the gunman as Eddie Ray Routh, a 25-year-old veteran with a history of mental illness who had served in both Iraq and Afghanistan. The police offered no information about [...]
An authentic US Air Force unmanned aerial vehicle with display stand. The customer reviews are priceless. Well, that’s because this appears to be a “fake” Amazon page. Though one can barely navigate the waters between ‘real’ and ‘satire’ nowadays without fervent research.
If you didn’t sacrifice your children to die for the government-corporatocracy complex, then the least you can do is send the state your dough. Or so says a bunch of wealthy bastards who feel guilty for not dying for the state. This quote from the article is rather telling: Every successful business person in America “has [...]
The evil Napolitano (as opposed to the good one) speaks to Australians about why they should be aligned and supportive of the US military-industrial-surveillance-security complex. Reader Chris Bieber writes, “Mussolini said the same thing…only in Italian.”

Dorothy Rabinowitz of the War Street Journal is terrified at the thought of Ron Paul winning in Iowa and showcasing his influence on foreign policy to the masses. I always chuckle when I see the neocons comparing the peaceful and non-interventionist foreign policy that Ron Paul advocates to the warmongering, occupy-the-world foreign policy of … [...]
Eleven deaths in April, but six of those were called “non-hostile incidents.” Around 45,000 US soldiers still remain stationed in Iraq, and while they are primarily charged with training and equipping their local counterparts, they can return fire in self-defence and still take part in joint counter-terror operations with Iraqi forces. You see, it’s really [...]
I was at an art show recently in Detroit’s Cass Corridor district. I like these things because they draw a really eclectic-gritty city crowd, including the usual share of old-fangled leftists from the old Detroit Communist League and assorted labour interests. There was a very senior gentleman we came across, and most anyone with a [...]
