Fun With Race!

How racist is this Intel ad?

Six cloned black sprinters (they indicate speed, get it?) surround a white man who is centered above them so that it appears they are bowing to him/rowing a slave ship.

Intel, give your marketing department a raise for tapping into the (not-so) subconscious racism of corporate America.
I bet your boss just ordered Intel Core 2 Duo processors and sprinter's blocks for the whole damn office.

- Also for consideration, is it racist to set Resident Evil 5 in Africa where a white protagonist has to mow down hordes of infected African zombies?

I can see the Al Sharpton getting up in arms already but on that one I have to say nay. if CJ from Grand Theft Auto IV can murder Californians of all colors at will I say let that fight go and save the energy for this next issue.

- ABC's upcoming show "Cavemen."
The pilot leaked to the intertubes (download the .torrent file here) and "Sweet antebellum south Batman!" is that shit racist.

If you've seen the Geico commercial you may think you know what's coming but you really don't.

The whole show is really just a thin guise to tell the most hackneyed black jokes you can possibly drudge up on network television. Replace "Cavemen" with "nigger" in any of the show's jokes and you have the show's premise laid out for you.

The show stars 3 "cavemen" who fit the 3 categories of

1) Unaware minority
2) Angry radical "Free Mumia" type minority
3) I-Just-Wanna-Fit-In minority

The caveman who is trying to fit in has a white girlfriend whose parents don't accept her relationship and the whole pilot episode involves them trying to attend the white girlfriend's rich parents BBQ without embarrassing their friend.

One joke refers to reclaiming the word Cro-Magnon as a term of endearment (cough, cough **N-Word debate** cough cough.)

Another joke involves a white girl at the BBQ who wants to fuck one of the caveman's friends because she thinks it will be pretty wild and freaky.

There is also a scene where the completely unaware friend, who is a great dancer, leads the white folk on a magical dance-along at the end of the show.

The jokes go on and on expect they don't actually make you laugh. And the backlash is already brewing.

This is building up to be a modern-day "Bamboozled."

ABC has a shitstorm in the works if they air this show as is. If they are smart they will take the L on this garbage and scrap whatever they've produced thus far.
If you're going to make an racial allegory at least be funny.

Snitch of the Week: 7/22 - 7/28 (Everyone)

I'm doing a list because there is no way I can pick just one.
Snitching has enveloped the zeitgeist.

I'm partial on giving the Snitch of the Week crown to Lindsay Lohan but the comp is so tight that any of these people could take it home.

Sometimes the Interwebs Scare Me

Can anyone tell me what the fuck a Tay Zonday is and why he has nearly 2 million views on YouTube?

I know this video is old in Internet time but I've been processing it and I've only become more confused... and a little bit frightened.

This guy got more buzz in two weeks with "Chocolate Rain" than any of the garbage singles 50 cent dropped this summer.

Seriously I don't get it.
He looks like he could be a 13 year old boy or one of Snoop's girlfriends from the Wire.

Can someone educate me?

Fun with Science!

(Click to enlarge)

This would be funnier it weren't so true.
With professors receiving death threats for teaching evolution while Fox and CBS refuse to show a condom commercial because it highlighted pregnancy prevention (yet they make billions from shows with non-stop sex) we are slowing competing with the Middle East for most anti-reality based region in the world.

I'm sure India and China are loving our march back to the Dark Ages. At this anti-science pace Americans will all be procuring scrap metal for our Chinese robotic masters by 2020.

Tighten up your Mandarin.

Fiddy vs Kanye vs 9/11

I never thought I'd reach a point in my life where I'd be cheering for Kanye, but Fiddy has truly embraced his self-proclaimed stride as the George Bush of rap and now that Kanye and Fiddy's albums will both be dropping on 9/11, I hope Kanye somehow manages to outsell 50 and end his career.

It's sad how quickly went from beloved street underdog with "How to Rob..." to the boring special ed analogy raps of "Amusement Park."

This uncut interview with 50 at Spin magazine is actually pretty incredible and gives a pretty honest look at his vulnerability after being shot and the fact that he's intelligent until the interviewer and Fiddy go into a room with Fiddy's weed-carriers and devolves into the rich-boy bully shtick that's worn terribly thin. It's sad because the beginning of the interview shows he's smarter than what comes below.


  • What about the MCs -- Chamillionaire, Ghostface Killah, Master P -- who have said that they're not going to curse in their music anymore, in response to the post-Imus outcry?
    None of those people sell records.

    Chamillionaire sold more than a million records.
    Let him go sell gospel records, if he's so fuckin' righteous. I can write around the curses if I want to, but you can't tell me to write around the curses. First of all, there's a clean version of the record available, anyway, if people don't want to hear that content. This is adult entertainment. Why is pornography legal? Wouldn't you say that the women who do pornography are hos? They get paid $1,000 to fuck on tape. You understand? And we can't say 'ho'? And who's the leading consumer for pussy on a tape? Middle-aged white men.

    The peanut gallery: "White men, yeah. They buy all of it. They're spending way more."

He also states that music cannot be good unless it sells.

  • Yeah, it's hard to imagine Ghostface is going to stop cursing, especially considering his last couple of records.

    The peanut gallery: "Nobody even cares what he does." "Who's listening to him, anyway?" "That was the '90s, B. Kids don't even know Ghostface anymore." "The streets are different now," says Yayo. "Guys like Ghostface don't matter. They don't. They had a run, but it's over."

    But can't he just make a great record, even if it doesn't sell, and we can appreciate it as listeners, as hip-hop fans?
    No, because a great record is embraced and enjoyed by the public. And it's played in cars and clubs.

    What if it sells a couple hundred thousand copies, isn't that valid? Or does it have to sell millions for you to take it seriously?
    In my camp, a couple hundred thousand records is a failure. From my perspective, if I sell 200,000 copies, after selling 12 million records, it's considered terrible.

    But maybe he's trying to make a different kind of record?
    What, the kind people don't buy?

    No, one with incredible, detailed storytelling that's moving and powerful, and isn't dependent on some obvious hook.
    Look, I understand all that. But if you're on a major record label, and he [Ghostface] is, and you sell a couple hundred thousand records, that was a failure. Your fuckin' photos and videos aren't recouped with 200,000 copies sold.

By that logic all popular music is good, all top-selling books are art and the highest grossing movies are the true classics.

Bad Boys 2 > Donnie Darko
Pearl Harbor > Waking Life

Thanks for the heads up Curtis.

Meanwhile, Kanye is ready for that ass (pause) on September 11th.
This may be the first year where people might actually be allowed to enjoy September 11th. Unless Guiliani links Curtis and Kanye to 9/11.

In the meanwhile, Chamillionaire's new Mixtape Messiah 3 is better than the last 42 albums G-Unit put out.

Snitch of the Week: 7/15 - 7/21 (FEMA Trailers)

I was going to choose The Nation as the Snitch of the Week for their incredible story on the Vietnam levels of civilian cruelty that US soldiers are engaging in in Iraq, but as long as Bush keeps blowing up steam pipes in NYC to keep everyone jittery (peep the story of the made-up terrorist), while he destroys the U.S. military, I will always have fuel for another post.
Just look at the stories that are coming out of there,
Instead I am going with this story about FEMA hiding the fact that their trailers were leaking formaldehyde. No wonder they were giving those shits away so easily.

"You want Federal money to rebuild your house? How about you just take this trailer and leave the windows closed. Thanks!"

From the article,

  • One man in Slidell, La., was found dead in his trailer on June 27, 2006, after complaining about the formaldehyde fumes. In a conference call about the death, 28 officials from six agencies recommended that the circumstances be investigated and trailer air quality be subjected to independent testing. But FEMA lawyers rejected the suggestions, with one, Adrian Sevier, cautioning that further investigation not approved by lawyers "could seriously undermine the Agency's position" in litigation.

FEMA's almost as toxic to black people as number one coon on my list, Sharpe James who I wrote about before.

  • Mr. James maintains that he is innocent of all the federal charges and will have his day in court. But some of the explanations he has offered up border on the preposterous. Take, for example, his trip to a beachfront resort in the Dominican Republic, for which federal prosecutors say he billed the city $1,440. Mr. James claims he wanted to see if the tropical gardens could be replicated at the train station in Newark...

    ...While presiding over a city where a third of the population lives in poverty, “He wasn’t even willing to pay $10 out of his own pocket to buy a movie ticket — he made the taxpayers do it.”

For exposing more FEMA retardation and inadequacy, the FEMA employees who spoke out are the Snitch(es) of the Week.

Fuck the Emmys, Yet Again

(Here we go again)

All awards shows suck, I know. It's all about behind the scenes favoritism and bandwagon following. But I still get pissed every year when they announce the same 5 fucking Emmy nominees over and over. The only good thing about the Emmys is the fact that Conan O'Brien is a great host.

Dear Emmy voters,

  • Stop blowing "House."
  • Stop blowing "Monk."
  • Stop blowing "24."
  • "Boston Legal" is garbage. Grey's Anatomy is garbage.
  • No one from "Heroes" deserves an Emmy nomination for acting. The acting is the worse part of that show.
  • The little kids from The Wire can outact about 99% of the nominees.

Time Magazine is riding with me on this one.
Here is the list of who was nominated and who should have won off the top of my head.

Best Series, Drama

'Boston Legal'
'Grey's Anatomy'
'The Sopranos'

The best 5 dramas are really:

"The Wire"
"The Shield"
"Friday Night Lights"
"The Sopranos"
Maybe "House"

The best 5 comedies are really:

"It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia"
"30 Rock"
"The Office"

The real best five actors are:

Vic Mackey "The Shield"
Tony Soprano "The Sopranos"
Dexter "Dexter"
Coach Taylor "Friday Night Lights"
Hugh Laurie "House"
Any of the four children from "The Wire"

I could go on but who really cares?
It's sad that "The Wire" doesn't get any attention whatsoever but it's true to the show's theme. Why take the time to watch and recognize a non-sexy, careful and intelligent examination of black inner city anomie when you could just watch a bunch of rich slutty doctors whine about life to slow acoustic music.

Fun With the College Republicans

See if you can stomach this video.

Warning: It contains lines like "Think of the 40 million aborted babies. We wouldn't need Mexican immigrants if those babies were still alive."

One day these people may run your country or your state. Some people in the video already do.
Bonus points if you can identify the next Dubya in the making.

Accidental Racism Strikes Again...

(Bumpin' too much Biggie Smalls)

I love stories like this,

  • The longtime chairman of the Roger Williams University board admitted Monday that he had used the N-word during a board meeting, saying it "kind of slipped out."

    "I apologized for that," Ralph Papitto said in an interview on WPRO-AM. "What else can I do? Kill myself?"

    Papitto, 80, who stepped down this month after nearly 40 years on the board, admitted he used the racial slur at a May meeting of the school's board of trustees. He had been discussing the difficulty of finding blacks and other minority members to serve on the 16-member board, which at the time included 14 white men and two women.

    Barbara Roberts, then a board member, said Papitto became irate when he discussed pressures to make the board more diverse, at one point using the slur to refer to black candidates.

So let me see,

Old Fat White Man: How's the search for black board members going?
Board member: Still pretty slow.
Old Fat White Man: Goddamn niggers!
Board members: ...uh...

This is my favorite part,
  • Papitto has given the school at least $7 million, and his name is on the law school, the only one in Rhode Island.

    He said he had never used the term before.

    "The first time I heard it was on television and then rap music or something," Papitto told WPRO.

This 80 year old man, born in 1927 in Rhode Island (which is famous for its love of Negroes) first heard the word "nigger" in rap music.

Can I buy the Brooklyn Bridge with that?

Snitch of the Week: 7/8 - 7/14 (Firefighters Against Giuliani)

(Stay classy New Jersey)

It was pretty funny that Miss New Jersey had to snitch on herself after someone threatened to out her (not all that) slutty Facebook pictures to the NJ pageant people.

- And it was hilarious in a very pathetic way that the jig who drove the other two jigs that shot two cops in NY at a traffic stop was busted because a greasy fingerprint on a fried chicken box. (Good looks Ohsokool.) Stereotypes are funny because they're true.

  • Career criminal Dexter Bostick was one arrest away from a mandatory life sentence and had nothing to lose when he blasted two city cops at point-blank range in a desperate bid for freedom, sources said yesterday.

    But he couldn't run away from evidence that tied him to the crime, including a greasy fingerprint on a box of fried chicken that led cops to one of his alleged accomplices.

    The man, a small-time crook from Queens, confessed and pinned the gunplay on Bostick and another man.

- But the real Snitch of the Week goes to the Firefighter's Union who blew Giuliani's shit the fuck up with their point by point video about what a joke this transvestite's 9/11 hero image is.

I'm gunning for you Rudy.

China = Gulliest Country Ever

(Wishing he worked for FEMA)

America is now realizing that the "Made In China" label that keeps the shit we buy so cheap isn't really worth it when the Chinese have swarms of rats in their farms, are putting anti-freeze ingredients into cough medicine and resin into pet food.

So what does China do to restore Western faith in its unregulated products after these scandals?
They execute a health official who was took bribes.

  • China executed its former top food and drug regulator today for taking bribes to approve untested medicine as Beijing scrambled to show that it is serious about improving the safety of Chinese products.

Damn, China.
I bet every lazy half-assed bureaucrat sat up in his chair when they read that story.

- The NAACP symbolically buried the N word in Detroit earlier this week.

That's funny because I realistically buried the NAACP years ago. What a sad irrelevant group they have become.
And this procession was lead by Detroit's joke ass coon of a mayor, Kwame Kilpatrick.
  • "Today we're not just burying the N-word, we're taking it out of our spirit," said Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick. "We gather burying all the things that go with the N-word. We have to bury the 'pimps' and the 'hos' that go with it."

Give me a fucking break.

  • "This was the greatest child that racism ever birthed," the Rev. Otis Moss III, assistant pastor at Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago, said in his eulogy.

Yea, that whole lynching thing? Much easier to deal with than a word.
Meanwhile, the city of Detroit burned in the background.

- Bush's pimp hand is strong. Congress subpoenaed his lawyer/cleaning lady Harriet Miers (Seriously, what does she do?) and Bush responded with a prompt "Ho, sit down."

  • President Bush ordered former counsel Harriet Miers to defy a congressional summons, even as a second former aide told a Senate panel Wednesday she knew of no involvement by Bush in the dismissals of eight federal prosecutors.

Even if she is convicted of contempt of court by Congress Bush will just pardon her.
Checks and balances for the win!!!

- And in the Department of What the Fuck, a religious bookseller was struck by lightning and put into a coma.
Who knew that God reads Vonnegut?

Snitch of the Week: 7/1 - 7/7 (Austin Mob Snitches)

Apparently the mob that murdered the passenger of a car that struck a small boy in Austin, Texas wasn't really a mob. A good turn of events, because this story kind of disturbed me when it first came out.

  • Morales, a 40-year-old house painter, died after being attacked while coming to the defense of his co-worker Victor Medel, who struck a young boy with his car while dropping Morales off at the Booker T. Washington housing complex on Thompson Street near Rosewood Avenue in East Austin.

    His death drew worldwide media attention after police initially connected it to a crowd from a nearby Juneteenth celebration. City officials later reduced the number of people in the area and said the attack was not connected to the festival at Rosewood Park.

It turns out it was some dumb-ass jig boxer. I guess that's better than a mob of people murdering a stranger in America in 2007. Although it's debatable how much a part of America Texas really is.

To the five people who stepped up and snitched on this moron, which included some of his friends,

  • "The affidavit includes summaries of statements given by five people who said they witnessed the beating. Willie Warren, 20; Charles Bernard Davis, 23; and Brandon Cleveland, 18, all told police that they were in a car with Colvin before the beating."

You are the Snitch of the Week.

Black People Lose

(Roy Pearson Jr., making Clarence Thomas look like Thurgood Marshall)

If white people win then it's clear that someone else has to take the short.

I'm going to point out two quick cases where black people by no fault other than their own went out of the way to ensure their loss and make things worse for everyone else.

The first case is worth all the ridicule you can throw upon it.
Y'all should know the name Roy. L Pearson Jr.
This joke of a Negro is/was an administrative judge who sued an Asian dry-cleaning company for $67 million initially and settled on a $54 million for losing a pair of his pants. Yea, a $50+ million lawsuit for a $10.50 cleaning job on a pair of pants. God Bless America.

This dumb bastard then rejected $12,000 to settle the case before it went to trial.

From the trial page on Wikipedia,

  • Among his requests were $500,000 in attorney's fees, $2 million for "discomfort, inconvenience, and mental distress", and $15,000, which he claimed would be the cost to rent a car every weekend to drive to another dry cleaning service. The remaining $51.5 million would be used to help similarly dissatisfied D.C. consumers sue businesses. Pearson also re-focused his lawsuit from the missing pants to window signs for "Satisfaction Guaranteed" and "Same Day Service" that have since been removed. Pearson claimed the signs represented fraud on the part of the Chungs. The Chungs' lawyer, Christopher Manning, alleged that the signs could only be considered fraud if a reasonable person would be misled by them, and that a reasonable person would not see the signs as an unconditional promise.

    On June 12, 2007, the trial began. Pearson broke down in tears during an explanation about his frustration after losing his pants, and a short recess had to be declared.

    On June 25, 2007, the trial ended with District of Columbia Superior Court Judge Judith Bartnoff ruling in favor of the dry cleaners, and awarding them court costs of about $1,000. A motion to recover the Chungs' tens of thousands of dollars in attorney fees will be considered later. Pearson has stated that he will appeal.

This Negro was crying in court over a Goddamn pair of pants.
Clarence Thomas and Roy Pearson, shitting on the black male in law.


This next case is a little less amusing. It involves Cory Booker, the mayor of Newark and the pathetic slavery-era understanding of race black people still cling to.

Quick rundown.

In 2006 light-skinned Negro Cory Booker replaced dark-skinned Negro Sharpe James, a crooked ass Wire style politician as Newark's mayor after losing to him in 2002.

The 2002 race between them was as ugly as it gets and Sharpe James used every ugly racial trick he could think of to herd the black sheep to get his 53% victory.

Peep some of Sharpe James tactics,

  • Sharpe James ran on a platform emphasizing his experience relative to the youthful Booker, utilizing the slogan "the Real Deal." He also used racially divisive rhetoric, saying to the Star Ledger of his opponent (who is black) "You have to learn to be African American and we don't have time to train you." James was also shown in Street Fight insinuating that Mr. Booker is Jewish (Mr. Booker is a devout Christian), a Republican (Mr. Booker is a lifelong Democrat), and allegedly a homosexual.

So Sharpe played off of black anti-Semitism, homophobia and light-skinned resentment. The black trifecta.

And guess what else?
After Booker took office, he found out the books were all fucked up from Sharpe and then in September 2006, The Star-Ledger reported that James is being investigated for spending city money on personal entertainment, including trips to Brazil and Florida.
In June 2007, The Star-Ledger and other newspapers reported that James had received a target letter from the U.S. Attorney for the District of New Jersey, informing James that he is the target of a federal investigation and inviting him to testify before a grand jury prior to their vote on whether or not to issue an indictment against him.

Now the vultures from Sharpe's administration are trying to create as toxic as an environment as possible to undermine Booker's term as mayor (NYTimes article here) because he is hiring people who aren't black and aren't from Newark. You know, because the black people from Newark were doing such a great job under the last mayor.

They are even building up a petition for a recall election. Mind you, there was no word of a recall when Sharpe was taking city-funded trips to Brazil.

I don't know shit about Jersey and it's history but I'm riding with Booker on this one

A) Because I'm light-skinned
B) Because this same shit happened in Detroit when the Negro zombies re-elected Kwame Kilpatrick over the light-skinned challenger in 2005.

Apparently Cory Booker is friends with Oprah and her wifey Gayle. Maybe she get the Black Crusaders to take out Pearson and Sharpe's old supporters at the same time.

Bill Clinton Needs To STFU

(Look smart, stay quiet)

First off, I hope y'all enjoyed the 4th.

I know she did. Even the most freedom hating liberal has to appreciate the fireworks and some good BBQ chicken.

Anyway, back to business. Apparently the Clintons feel it is appropriate to criticize Bush's semi-pardon of Scooter Libby (Check this flashback on Bush.) There is no Democrat less capable of criticizing Bush on this issue than Bill Clinton.

Peep the list of pardons Bill granted on his last day as President. (Wikipedia page)
Here are some of the highlights from the letter A alone,

ALTSCHUL, Bernice Ruth Sherman Village, California Conspiracy to commit money laundering
ANDERSON, Joe, Jr. Grove Hill, Alabama Income tax evasion
ANDERSON, William Sterling Spartanburg, South Carolina Conspiracy to defraud a federally insured financial institution, false statements to a federally insured financial institution, wire fraud

I'm sure Clinton's list of pardons had some worthy cases in it but I'd bet that most of it was bullshit. Granted, we don't know what Bush's last day pardon list will look like but as of July 2007, Clinton has no basis to open his mouth.

I know black people are contractually obligated to love Bill Clinton, and his legacy is only magnified by the abject failure of Bush in regards to Katrina and the overall country, but the shadow of Clinton's carelessness and hubris is partially responsible for the backlash Gore received in 2000 (even though Gore still won) and for the constant explanation and backtracking Democrats have to enagage in with regards to Clinton's shady non-blowjob related activities.

This bullshit tit-for-tat is why a Bush or a Clinton never needs to be in office again. I'm not equating Clinton's 8 years to Bush's 8 years in office. God knows the two are not equivalent, but the book needs to be closed on the politrix of those two politics families.

Hilary Clinton should hold down her job as Junior Senator of NY and Bill should continue his work as a philanthropist private citizen to atone for his domestic and international failures (Rwanda) as president.

Let someone else hold the reigns.

People Named Scooter Don't Go To Jail

(Did I mention that white people win?)

I didn't think Bush would be dumb enough to drop Scooter Libby's sentence.
That's what I get for doubting the stupidity of this man.

Here is Bush's official statement,

  • WHEREAS Lewis Libby was convicted in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia in the case United States v. Libby, Crim. No. 05-394 (RBW), for which a sentence of 30 months' imprisonment, 2 years' supervised release, a fine of $250,000, and a special assessment of $400 was imposed on June 22, 2007;

    NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the United States of America, pursuant to my powers under Article II, Section 2, of the Constitution, do hereby commute the prison terms imposed by the sentence upon the said Lewis Libby to expire immediately, leaving intact and in effect the two-year term of supervised release, with all its conditions, and all other components of the sentence.

    IN WITNESS THEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this second day of July, in the year of our Lord two thousand and seven, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and thirty-first.

I don't care about the legal minutiae of the case, Scooter Libby was connected with a White House movement to leak the identity of a government agent whose husband spoke out against the Iraq war intelligence.

Libby was complicit in a traitorous act.
Apparently 30 months is too harsh of a penalty for treason.

However, there was nothing harsh in the sentences of the Negroes Governor Bush let fry, despite the fact that their lawyers fell asleep during their trials or showed up to court drunk and on cocaine.

  • "The Chicago Tribune published a compelling report on an investigation of all 131 death cases in Governor Bush's time. It made chilling reading.

    In one-third of those cases, the report showed, the lawyer who represented the death penalty defendant at trial or on appeal had been or was later disbarred or otherwise sanctioned. In 40 cases the lawyers presented no evidence at all or only one witness at the sentencing phase of the trial."

George Bush for Justice!

More than outrage or any other emotion, I am insulted.
There is no respect for even those of the most miniscule intellect.

  • George Bush can talk about justice while overseeing the slaughter of hundreds of men who got worse lawyers than terrorism suspects.

  • Cheney can seriously claim that the Vice President's office is not in the Executive Branch and have people debate that shit.

  • Scalia can use TV show characters as a justification for torture and sit on the Supreme Court.

As my boy from college said,

"Piss down my back and tell me it's raining."

Most Americans are still looking for the umbrella.

Snitch of the Week: 6/24 - 6/30 (CIA Family Jewels)

Self snitching keeps things simple for me.

The CIA released a document called the Family Jewels that documents all of their classified illegal activities from the 50s to the 70s.
Full document here.
Sadly we'll all be dead by the time the CIA releases the documents covering all the illegal shit carried out under the Bush empire.

Reading through this shit is kind amazing, especially when you realize that the #1 classified item is STILL blanked out.

What the fuck could still need classification after 50 years?
I don't even think I want to know...

The most interesting items that were made public are,

  • The use of the mafia to attempt to assassinate Castro.
  • Funding of behavior modification research and experiments on "unwitting" U.S. citizens
  • Opening of mail from 1969 to 1972 of letters to and from PR China
  • Opening of mail from 1953 to 1973 of letters to and from the Soviet Union (including letters associated with actress Jane Fonda)
  • Break-in at the home of a former CIA employee.

The list goes on...

Anyone who dismisses massive government conspiracies as foolish paranoia needs to peep the CIA's mid century game. I can only imagine how much worse the CIA has gotten since the Iran-Contra scandal days of Reagan and the happy-fun torture time of Bush.

If you want a brief glimpse of the new age Illuminati peep the bio of the Information Awareness Office. Scary shit.

Let's not forget that we have begun arming Sunni groups in Iraq that have previously attacked U.S. troops.

  • "The US high command this month gave permission to its officers on the ground to negotiate arms deals with local leaders. Arms, ammunition, body armour and other equipment, as well as cash, pick-up trucks and fuel, have already been handed over in return for promises to turn on al-Qaida and not attack US troops."

Hey crazy Muslims, if we give you free guns do you promise to not kill us and aim at Al-Qaida instead?

That sounds like a fucking winner of a strategy.

If only we had a previous case to study and determine if we can trust insurgents with weapons after they do our bidding...

Oh wait, we do. It's called Operation Cyclone (what an apt name) from when the U.S. funded terrorists in order to defeat Russia. Then we left and they took the same training and weapons and blew up the World Trade Center.

Anyone remember that?
Yea, me neither.

For pointing out the sad amnesiac circle that is American foreign policy, the CIA is the Snitch of the Week.

Snitch of the Week: 6/17 - 6/23 (Branded Snitch)

(Not a fan of Start Snitching)

Good looking to everyone who pointed this story out to me, although it was damn near impossible to miss.

Apparently Arizona is the gulliest place in the world because last week a woman had the word "snitch" branded to her face as retaliation for helping police in a domestic violence case.
  • "The brand singed into her flesh during a June 13 attack is 4 to 6 inches long and stretches across her left cheek from lip to earlobe, Mesa police Sgt. Chuck Trapani said Friday.

I don't know if she would helped the police out if she knew what was going to happen to her but a face branding a la Armadillo earns you Snitch of the Week.
