Nader the Hater, see you Later... 

You knew Nader was going to enter the race. Paid by the Rove committee to fool Green Party folks from voting ABB, he will try to squeeze the 3-5% margin needed to get "W" "re"-elected.

Nader stood for "consumer rights" when the rest of the country was addressing racism, feminism, classism and other crushing issues. He never took a stand on any of these. In fact, he stands for nothing. But the millions he will get paid by Rove for entering the race are hard to turn down.

Anyone voting for Nader is voting for someone worse than "W". He is a "W" apologist, a "W" prion, and a phony. He is also transparent. Don't be so gullible.

p.s. If this reads like a rant, check out this Salon.com commentary.

Bush the Prion 

Well, thanks to Loopie, we've all been logged out, though not blogged out, for a few days. Thanks for changing the password without notice, Loops.

On to the follow-on...Bush the prion.
Last week we reviewed systems that contain the means of their own destruction...from prions to the immune system, complex systems have just too many parts to not have a few unprotected backdoors. In fact, every cell in the body (that contains DNA, that is--1/5 of your body's cells are nucleus-free red blood cells) has DNA to program its own self-destruction sequence...a process called apoptosis that is behind the neuronal death that carves out memories.

Why is Bush a prion? Not just for the obvious reason that he's a destructive, nasty, hateful little piece of protein. No, rather for the influence he has on the intellectually indolent and the motivationally reactive.

If you, like most of America, were blissfully unaware of the impact of the US policies on the rest of the world before 9/11, and it took you by surprise, you are likely to still be that way. And you are an amorphous, ineffectual little piece of protein floating around in the synaptic sludge that is US culture. When an instigator like Bush comes along, his little prion shape reforms you into a prion, and a chain reaction occurs, reshaping (or alternatively giving shape to) you amorphous hebetudinous pack of somnambulists. Wake up, take your own shape. A prion is powerless if it cannot find a weak chain to give its shape to.

Bush is a prion, he represents a ludicrously small sample of US society, somewhere between 1-5% of us. Unless you're in that sample--and beware the revolution if you are--you should see Bush for the prion he is. Excise him from your synapses. All he does is reinforce bad memories and lead to Mad human disease....

Sometimes you just have to steal! 

Here's something via Corrente via Sisyphus Shrugged:

A recession is when your neighbor loses his job.

A depression is when you lose your job.

A recovery is when Mr. Bush loses his job.

I cannot think of a better slogan that captures the spirit of resourcing* Bush.

*IBM speak for firing.


*Note: I am in a minimalist frame of mind until further notice. My brain has not recovered yet from Bushitis.
