The United Suckers of America!

The sad truth on an MSNBC message board. "UP with Chris Hayes":

Obama Signs Bill to Extend Warrantless Wiretapping
President Obama has signed into law an extension of the federal government’s sweeping powers to conduct warrantless wiretapping. The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act allows for the monitoring of domestic phone calls and emails as long as one of the parties in the communication is outside the United States. The controversial program was set to expire at the end of 2012 but has now been renewed for another five years.

7 Aid Workers Shot Dead in Pakistan
Seven aid workers have been shot dead in Pakistan in what appears to be the latest case of militants targeting health-related groups. Last month, at least nine volunteers with a polio vaccination drive were killed across Pakistan. Opposition to health efforts has spread after the CIA used a fake vaccination program to help find Osama bin Laden. Five of the workers killed in Tuesday’s attack were young women who worked as educators. The remaining two were health workers.

Report: Iraqi Civilian Deaths Rise in "Low-Level War"
A new tally shows the number of civilians killed in Iraq rose in 2012 for the first time in three years. The British-based group, Iraq Body Count, says about 4,500 civilians were killed in violence last year. The group said in a statement: "The latest evidence suggests that the country remains in a state of low-level war little changed since early 2009." Iraq Body Count’s figure is more than twice the number given by Iraqi officials who claim violence is actually dropping. On Monday, at least 23 people were killed and 87 wounded in a series of attacks across Iraq.

U.S. Drone Strikes Kill Taliban Leader, 14 Others in Pakistan
U.S. drone strikes have killed 15 people in Pakistan, including a Taliban commander, according to officials there. Maulvi Nazir was killed along with several other people in a strike in South Waziristan Wednesday night. A second strike this morning in North Waziristan killed at least four people.

Obama Signs Renewal of Controversial Defense Act
President Obama has signed a renewal of the controversial National Defense Authorization Act, or NDAA. The law has drawn widespread criticism for last year’s provision allowing the United States to detain suspects anywhere in the world without charge or trial. A group of journalists, activists and scholars — including Chris Hedges and Noam Chomsky — have challenged the Obama administration over that statute in a case currently before a federal appeals court. The 2013 version effectively blocks the Obama administration from closing Guantánamo Bay by barring the use of funds for construction on facilities that could be used for prisoner transfers. There are currently 166 prisoners held at Guantánamo; 86 of them have been cleared for release. President Obama signed the renewal despite his objections to the Guantánamo provision, following promises to close the detention center. In a statement, he said: "I have approved this annual defense authorization legislation, as I have in previous years, because it authorizes essential support for service members and their families, renews vital national security programs, and helps ensure that the United States will continue to have the strongest military in the world."

Yemen: Drone Strike Kills 3 Suspected Militants in Area Devastated by Prior Strike
In Yemen, a U.S. drone strike has killed three suspected al-Qaeda militants, including a local commander. Thursday’s attack occurred in an area devastated by a previous strike that killed 11 people, including three children. Last month the United States admitted for the first time it had carried out the September attack in Rada after the Yemeni government initially tried to claim credit. According to the Washington Post, militants in surrounding areas have gained more recruits for their fight against the U.S.-backed Yemeni government since that attack occurred.

Obama Disputes Limits on Gitmo Prisoner Transfers in NDAA
The White House has released a statement attached by President Obama to the controversial National Defense Authorization Act that disputes the law’s restrictions on transferring prisoners out of Guantánamo. Obama signed the NDAA despite opposing the limits on prisoner transfers. In the statement, Obama claimed he has constitutional power to override those restrictions. Obama made a similar claim when he signed last year’s version of the bill but has still not delivered on promises to close Guantánamo.

Hi Dorothea from Germany;
Very good rundown of how the Obama/Biden administration hasn't strayed from the Status Quo. I would have included a very strong worded tidbit on how Obama/Biden/Holder gave a free pass to those greed stricken, American Psychos on Wall Street. Mark my words more damning evidence is going to leak for the American PEOPLE about such GOP Pimp Houses such as Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan/Chase.

I'm convinced any President just gives in to the fact that "it is what it is". The US government is going to do whatever it takes to keep the rich, powerful, well-connected, war profiteering @$$holes in the extravagant lifestyles they've grown accustomed to. They are a vain, greedy, vicious, corrupt people who buy our politicians for about the same price of high class prostitutes. Democrats don't have the courage to take on the warped system because people on the left side of the political spectrum are a fickle bunch who let them down in 2010. Liberals, Progressives, Independents don't have the ciones to do what it takes to achieve REAL change. AMERICANS HAVEN'T SUFFERED ENOUGH YET!  fucking pussies

ME? I'm doing what I can while waiting for the Class War to end. (lol) organize, Organize, ORGANIZE!

As far as the rest goes...
Oliver Stone has his reality, you have yours and I have mine, guess who right? Only GOD knows, right? (lol)
Did Hollywood make movie "300" so young American men would get pumped up enough to volunteer to fight a Persian enemy in Iraq?
My reality, for instance, is I'm 100% positive the root of all America's problems are those useful, degenerate morons who vote for Republicans. Y'know those retards who put Obama eating watermelon statues in the front yard or protest at soldiers funerals because of DADT.
Sheep being led to slaughter by those greed stricken power mad silver spoon trust fund babies who almost took down our economy.  

HEY, Oliver Stone, call me (LOL) 
I've got one hell of a script where I live out all my revolutionary, Class War revenge  fantasies through an ethics professor, some Italian-American hoods & Native-American warriors. Oohhh my, how they extract revenge on the evil aristocrats. It's a wonderful American road trip where evil robber barons and economic royalists get chopped...

Republican/Conservative is the NEW "nigger"

Ok I got that out, let me post what I came for: I got words for Hayes and the other MSNBC anchors.
Teachable moment, HA that’s a good one. COME ON, bulls**t the viewers with the Trillion dollar coin instead of getting to the root of our nations economic woes.
A) what happens to the money once our government gets their hands on it. FOLLOW THE MONEY. Just the 8 years of Bush/Cheney is enough to keep viewers interested for decades
B) identify the serious misallocations of wealth and resources, remedy it and hold those responsible for waste fraud, abuse, war profiteering, scandal and the corporate crime wave.
Listening to you fools talk about your trillion dollar bulls**t is almost unbearable. I think I’ll turn you off and listen to a Thom Hartmann or Mike Malloy stream or maybe watch some old video of “Countdown with Keith Olbermann” and dream about the days when journalists/news anchors actually DID THEIR JOB!

 MSNBC with your patented opinion mill has lost it’s appeal and now just makes me ill. ( I do like Rachel Maddow but the rest is getting old)  I want to see some in-depth investigative reports on  B) you f***’n pussies

Jeez, I turn on the TV and you’re even more fluff than yesterday Steroids, baseball, WOW! Yea let’s get Congress to waste our tax dollars debating steroids and baseball because a bunch of  news people do fluff stories instead of covering the vital stories of the day.  Maybe Congress and the news media should be worried about other drug stories that go beyond a few millionaire sports figures.

How about this? I wonder if Senator McConnell, the Pentagon/DOD cares so many of their Veterans are addicted to LEGAL pharmaceuticals and pain killers  (isn’t former 1st Lady Barbara Bush a majority stockholder in several pharmaceutical companies?) Hhhmmmm… Or that pill pushers are preying on the wives and kids of soldiers serving oversees?

 Oh look you started out today’s program allowing Mike Huckabee (and the other highly paid puppets from the Republican propaganda machine) to divert MSNBC from the REAL news of the day.  Yes, that’s what the AMERICAN PUBLIC NEEDS TO KNOW! The women count in his cabinet?  Yes MSNBC, let a chuckling fool like Huckabee steer the debate with the premise that Republicans are better for women than the Obama/Biden Administration. COME ON? I missed it but did any of you guest experts ask the question,
Is the President is a male chauvinist pig?”
I don’t know if you geniuses at MSNBC noticed but FOX Spin… aaahhhh I mean, News is playing you people for fools. They do this BS all the time and you guys fall for it over and over.  They put out some degenerate low grade thought process or babbling idiot premise an d then MSNBC hosts fall all over each other making fun or tearing down the Conservative wacko BS. AND THAT’S ALL IT IS BULLS**T! Diverting resources, revenue and PRECIOUS broadcast airtime AWAY from the ANYONE doing in-depth investigative reports on the vital issues or Corporate Crime wave or war profiteers or ETC.

GOOD JOB 4TH ESTATE, I’m going to make sure the news media from 1984 - 2013 goes down in history as the biggest bunch of cocktail party loving, ladder climbing sell-outs in the history of USA
