Politics of Fear

The U.S. government is spying on Americans for “national security purposes”. They say they are looking for Americans trying to help, fund and arm al-Qaeda terrorists. If true, then the only thing keeping John McCain and Lindsay Graham from being droned was efforts of Rand Paul to make sure you can’t drone Americans on U.S. soil. The wacko bird saved Maverick’s life. Have fun in Syria Johnny.

Okay

I’m going to make this short since my battery is getting low. We are all okay. That’s the good news. The bad news is we are without power and we got hit. Our front porch has collapsed and it caused the living room ceiling to collapse as well. The barn is totally destroyed, most of the trees are either damaged or destroyed. The oil well that you usually see in my photos is severely damaged and the power high line in the wheat field behind it is gone.

To the guy on Twitter that hoped I died in a tornado today, you almost got your wish. Better luck next time.

A One Party System

The problem with the GOP isn’t so called “infighting”, the problem is that Democrats think government should do everything and the GOP is lead by Republicans that think everything Democrats want done can be achieved at 80% of the cost. That’s not opposition, that’s just a discount. #tcot #tlot

How One Well-Connected Pseudonymous Twitter Spread Fake News About Hurricane Sandy

by Andrew Kaczynski

The twitter user @comfortablysmug is one of a handful of pseudonymous Manhattan professionals who keep their widely-followed Twitter voices separate from their careers. His bio describes him as “My Interests: Finance, Gin, Politics, Books, Food, Fine Clothing, Meeting Strangers #Mitt2012” and links to a Romney campaign donation page of the sort that credits bundlers for the cash they’ve brought in.

His 6,000 followers include political and business reporters, and he’ll occasionally tweet of getting a drink with Business Insider’s Joe Wiesenthal; once with BuzzFeed editor Ben Smith. 

And in the chaos around Hurricane Sandy, he veered into new territory: Trying to trick his media followers, and their followers and readers in turn, with fake news. He reported, falsely, on a total blackout in Manhattan, on a flood on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange, and other things that didn’t happen.

Two of his tweets garnered more than 500 retweets. One drew a rebuke from ConEd’s official Twitter account.

Twitter’s self-correction mechanism — rebukes and rebuttals from knowledgeable sources — shut down each rumor, but not until at least one, the flood claim, had bled widely into the television media. 

@comfortablysmug didn’t respond immediately to an inquiry, via Twitter direct message, as to his motives.

Speaking Truth to Power?

Liberals like to brag about “speaking truth to power” but it’s different in other countries than the US.  In Putin’s version of Tsarist Russia a punk band named Pussy Riot spoke truth to power by telling the truth about Putin and got sent to the gulag for 2 years.  Meanwhile Code Pink dresses up as vaginas to “speak truth to power” by telling Congress they are slightly less socialist then they like and will spend the next 2 months following the campaigns, one of which they will proudly vote for. Yes, Code Pink, you really are just a bunch of big vaginas.

I just filmed a video “Microburst.” on #viddy http://viddy.it/OSxTh8

Movie Idea: John Roberts: Constitution Hunter

A time traveling Emo Justice John Roberts goes back in time to declare Acts of Parliament valid and tells Patriots that the Declaratory Act (The American Colonies Act of 1766)  will one day give American Colonists a National Health Service and make him popular and beloved by people in the future (our present). so he can attend cocktail parties. The movie ends with a time traveling James Madison, using a time machine built by Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson removes Emo John Roberts from the time line and maroon him 63 million years in the past as an asteroid approaches Earth.

The problem with the GOP today is the same it was back in the 1970s. The GOP Establishment is more Democrat Lite than Republican. They want to do everything the Democrats want to do but claim they can do it at 80% of the cost. #tcot #tlot
