This must be the same Ad firm T. Boone Pickins uses.

Two advertising geniuses come to help the Chevron executives plot to trick you into thinking they are going green when they are doing the exact opposite.

Bob Cesca, Host of the Bob and Elvis show, recently wrote an Op-Ed over at the Huffington Post that supports the reasoning behind the photo to the right; The goal is simple re-write history and scare the white people by manufacturing the racial boogie man. You know  “a guy who has a deep-seated hatred for white people or the white culture.”

And it works. So well, in fact, that it’s still actively used on AM talk radio and on Fox News Channel as a ratings-grabber, not to mention as a recruitment tool for the various tea party groups. If you can effectively convince the majority race that they’re being somehow victimized by the significantly smaller minority, you have a seriously powerful (and clearly immoral) psycho-weapon in your arsenal.

This year has to be some kind of high water mark for white antagonism against minorities, and evidence that the Republicans, along with the array of far-right apparatchiks, don’t really have a serious agenda for governing to sell or, for that matter, anything of value to say. And so they do this. They continue to tap into a mother lode of white majority self-pity and inchoate rage as a form of spackle over the gaping holes in their ridiculous policy arguments.

Bob Cesca is right, there are “gaping holes”; however the gaping holes are between the ears of …..well just watch the video.

I have a solution to all of this hateful rhetoric. The far right-wing, race baiting, tea- party attending, lap dogs should be required to wear shock collars and the critical thinking majority should control the remotes.

I just ran across some laugh out loud (LOL) facts about the family values, far right-wingnuts who are more interested in Tea Party’s than food banks, healthcare and home foreclosures. So without further delay.

You might be a Right-Wing Republican if: 

  • you’re for tax cuts for the rich because you actually believe that one day you’ll be rich.
  •  You might be a right-wing Repugnant, oops, I mean Republican, if you’re against abortion but don’t give a damn about those babies once they’re born.
  •  you try to make it complicated, but all Jesus was really saying was “Do unto others, as you would have them do unto you.”
  •  you think that (compared to you), a whiskey-guzzling, coke-sniffing, draft-dodging loser is the cream of the American crop and the best this country could offer up for President.
  • Abortion is murder, but killing the children in Iraq is liberating them

SNAP!

Want more words of Repugnant wisdom? There is more to be had at All Hat No Cattle.

Finally some important legislation

I have been reading Rob Brezsney (Free Will Astrology) for years. Today I ran across a great piece on him, in which he discusses his book Pronoia, being shot in the rear yet being lucky enough to have a 24 page poem “save his ass” and a “sacred totem” outside his bathroom window. If you don’t know him or his work, you should get to know him. I promise his horoscopes will leave you with that WTF, head-scratching feeling for hours. Consider mine for the coming week.

A reader calling herself Rebellioness collaborated with me to come up with five revolutionized approaches to the art of rebellion. I present them here for your use, as they identify the kinds of behavior that will be most nurturing for you to cultivate in the coming weeks. 1. Experimenting with uppity, mischievous optimism. 2. Invoking insurrectionary levels of wildly interesting generosity. 3. Indulging in an insolent refusal to be chronically fearful. 4. Pursuing a cheeky ambition to be as wide-awake as a dissident young messiah. 5. Bringing reckless levels of creative intelligence to all expressions of love.

See what I mean? But I do like the sound of  “experimenting with uppity, mischievous optimism” and hell who knows, I might just be good at it.
