Oh! If Neville Chamberlain were only alive today, he’d know what to do!

1. Power mad,legally elected oligarch seeking power under the guise of saving his country from further humiliation and economic disaster = Ditto, revenge for treaty of Versailles.
2. Nuclear capability = the rearming of Germany, against treaty dictates.
3. Olympics = olympics.
4. Fuck the homosexuals = fuck the jews (and gypsies and homosexuals).
5. Invasion of “former territory” with threats of much worse if the world interferes = ditto.
6. Pussy Riot = Book Burning.
7. Posturing, narcissistic delusional psycho personality = ditto.
8. Powerless puppet figurehead (Medvedev) = Kaiser.
9. No funny mustache = funny mustache.

Putin out the Olympic torch. How the Greeks invented culture, sports and homosexuality.

The Angry Aussie does an Ayn rant. Priceless.

I cannot imagine what kind of environmental circumstances lead people (some of them actually pretty bright) to embrace religion. It beggars my imagination. Ignorance may indeed be bliss, but I’d rather have a fucking BRAIN and live two hundred years with scabies, permanent jock itch and tinnitus than be someone who by some twist of fate is both an adult and truly believes in palpably absurd doctrines and fairy tales.

Lately I’ve been seeing more and more maroons actually proudly enunciate their respect for that miserable twisted little freak, Ayn Fucking Rand. Anyone over the age of 10 who can see ANY worth in her circular “reasoning” can only be excused as a case of early emotional abuse of undetermined nature. So the Angry Aussie is a breath of freaking fresh air. I particularly like the Alan Greenspan bit toward the end.

I do hope he has a rant about Scientology, that would be sweet.

Democracy Now:

“As President Bush tours Latin America, Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez spoke before tens of thousands at an anti-imperialist rally in Argentina of Friday. We broadcast excerpts of Chavez’s stinging attack on Bush who was in Uruguay, just thirty miles away across the River Plate. [includes rush transcript]”

(Last week in Washington, President Bush spoke before the US Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.)

PRESIDENT (sic) GEORGE W. BUSH:

“You know, not far from the White House, there’s a statue of the great liberator Simon Bolivar. He’s often compared to George Washington — Jorge W. Like Washington, he was a general who fought for the right of his people to govern themselves. Like Washington, he succeeded in defeating a much stronger colonial power. And like Washington, he belongs to all of us who love liberty. One Latin American diplomat had put it this way: “Neither Washington nor Bolivar was destined to have children of their own, so that we Americans might call ourselves their children.”

We are the sons and daughters of this struggle, and it is our mission to complete the revolution they began on our two continents. The millions across our hemisphere who every day suffer the degradations of poverty and hunger have a right to be impatient. And I’m going to make them this pledge: The goal of this great country, the goal of a country full of generous people, is an Americas where the dignity of every person is respected, where all find room at the table, and where opportunity reaches into every village and every home. By extending the blessings of liberty to the least among us, we will fulfill the destiny of this new world and set a shining example for others. Que Dios les bendiga.”

(Democracy Now):

“Today, we’re going to play an excerpt of one of Chavez’s speeches, this at the mass really in Buenos Aires on Friday. The Venezuelan president launched a stinging attack on Bush, who was in Uruguay, just thirty miles away across the River Plate (sic).”

PRESIDENT HUGO CHAVEZ: [translated]

“(…) Well, we nevertheless need to thank that little gentleman that’s visiting us, because if he were not here in South America, perhaps this event would not be so well-attended. We have organized this event to say no to the presence of the chief of the empire here in the heroic lands of South America.

The imperial little gentleman that’s visiting Latin America today said about seventy-two or forty-eight hours ago in one of his speeches, when he was announcing that he was leaving for Latin America, he compared Simon Bolivar to George Washington. In fact, he even said the ridiculous thing — and I can’t say it’s hypocrisy, because it is simply ridiculous, the most ridiculous thing he could say. He said, today we are all children of Washington and Bolivar. That is, he thinks that he is a son of Bolivar. What he is is a son of a — but I can’t say that word here.

So he has said — he has said — and you should listen to what he said here — he said that now is the time to finish the revolution that Washington and Bolivar commenced. How’s that for heresy? That is heresy and ignorance, because we have to remember — and I say this with all due respect to George Washington, who is historically one of the founding fathers of that country — but we must also remember the differences and how different George Washington and Simon Bolivar were, are and will always be.

George Washington won a war to gain the independence of the North American economic elite from the English empire, and when Washington died, or, rather, after his independence and after having been the president of the United States, after ordering the massacre of the indigenous peoples of North America, after defending slavery, he ended up being a very rich owner of slaves and of a plantation. He was a great landowner. That was George Washington.

Simon Bolivar, however, was born with a silver spoon, and at eight years old his parents died and he inherited a large fortune, together with his brothers, and he inherited haciendas and slaves. Simon Bolivar, when history led him — and as Karl Marx said, men can make history, but only as far as history allows us to do so — when history took Bolivar and made him the leader of the independence process in Venezuela, he made that process revolutionary. Simon Bolivar turned over all of his land. He freed all of his slaves, and he turned them into soldiers, and he brought them here. He brought them to Peru and Carabobo, and he worked together with the troops of San Martin to liberate this continent. That is Simon Bolivar.

And Simon Bolivar, having been born with that silver spoon in his mouth, when he died on the Caribbean coast of Colombia, when he died on December 17 in 1830, he was dressed with a shirt of someone else, because he had no clothes. Simon Bolivar is the leader of the revolution of this land. He is the leader of the social revolution, the people’s revolution, the historical revolution. George Washington has nothing — nothing — to do with this history.

It was in 1823 that James Monroe said, “America for the Americans.” And when I say this tonight, I say it because I want to remind you, my brothers of Argentina, of Venezuela and of America, that the presence of the President of the United States in South America represents all of that. He represents that Monroe Doctrine of America for the Americans. Well, we will have to tell him: North America for the North Americans and South America for the South Americans. This is our America. (…)”
