Sick Vick Is Free

Posted in Society on May 23rd, 2009

Michael Vick - Herpes infected, dog killing ghetto thugMichael “Sick” Vick, the subhuman ghetto thug famous for both athleticism and the torture, mutilation, and murder of countless dog at his Bad Newz Kennels dogfighting arena, was released from federal prison Thursday, May 20, 2009. He is on furlough and has returned to his Virginia home.

Sick Vick, due to his celebrity status, served a mere 19 months in a federal minimum security facility and escaped all VA state prison time for his unfathomably disgusting, pernicious, and subhuman crimes. He is currently on parole and is due for full release on from federal custody on July 20,  2009, and then faces three more years of supervised probation.

The arrogant piece of filth hopes afterward to resume his NFL career!

One can only hope that one or more people ensure that Vick’s deranged fantasies never come true. It should rot in poverty and anonymity until it finally betters the Earth by dying and removing it’s stench and disease from the human society it lurks within.

Hopefully such a future, a future without hope for Sick Vick, will come about by lawful means. Hopefully the NFL will not debase itself so much as to allow some like Vick ever put on a uniform again.

If, through greed or coercive racial pressures, such a legally arrived at future cannot be, then I must hope and pray to Morrígu that some right-thinking Americans render this creature physically incapable of playing any sport – or mocking humanity by looking actual people in eye or walking on two legs.

Memorial Day

Yes, these brave men and women who put themselves in harm’s way for the sake of kith and kin, for the sake of clan and country, and for the sake of freedom and security for all those who sheltered behind them, needed no motivational posters, no rousing speeches, no brash fanfares. They sacrificed themselves on the altar of blood because duty demanded it; all the pomp and splendor was but trapping for those left behind.

Review, friends – troops long past review,
All to fate a weight of pains and dollars.
Their spirit’s wear our silver collars.

Review, friends – troops long past review:
Each a dot of time without pretense or guile.
With them passes the lure of fortune.

Review, friends – troops long past review.
When our time ends on its rictus smile,
We’ll pass the lure of fortune.

— Gurney Halleck
Frank Herbert’s Dune

These fallen soldiers are long past review, their arms and accouterments moldering in the earth, yet there they stand in perfect formation. Massed in their ranks, battalion after battalion, in neat rows set out in now peaceful fields, they fulfill their final duty.

So do not review them, these men and women who earned a warrior’s peace. Present yourself to them instead for review. The fallen do not need our thanksgiving or our praise, but we, for the sake of our souls, need to thank and praise them – and to remember.

Obama Motors?

Posted in Politics on May 20th, 2009

How could President Obama make sure that he and his administration achieve their agenda for the American automotive industry’s restructuring? While his government now “owns” major interests in GM and Chrysler, they’re both still technically private companies that can set their own policies.

The easy answer is for Obama and his government is to use American tax dollars to start a new automobile manufacturer and buy out the remaining healthy assets of GM and/or Chrysler. Apparently that is what he is planning on doing!

President Obama's new GM - Government Motors
Driving America To The Edge…And Beyond

Many Americans feared that the Automobile Bail-Out would lead to nationalization of the Americans auto industry. In response to those fears, the Liberals heaped scorn upon the concerned. Sadly for America, it looks like we were right to be afraid. Welcome to Obama Motors.

NEW YORK, May 19 (Reuters) – General Motors Corp’s (GM.N) plan for a bankruptcy filing involves a quick sale of the company’s healthy assets to a new company initially owned by the U.S. government, a source familiar with the situation said on Tuesday.

Supposedly it’s GM’s plan, but it’s Obama and his Liberals who have the money – our money – that GM needs to survive – so who’s deciding what going happen? The government under Obama, that’s who. America has already heard about how Obama and his team are controlling the Chrysler pseudo-bankruptcy.

Of course this new company – Obama Motors? Government Motors? USSA Auto? – won’t be wholly owned by the US government. They’ll be splitting it with the UAW, but the government will likely hold the majority of control.

The government’s plans include giving stakes in the new company to GM’s union and bondholders, although the ownership structure of the company is still being negotiated, said the source who is familiar with the company’s plans.

The board of the new company would be established with the tacit approval of the government. Fritz Henderson, who took the helm of GM earlier this year after the government pushed out Rick Wagoner, would likely head the new company, the source said.

There’s not that much else to say on this topic other than this is a very bad thing for America and it is very likely to come to pass.
