On and on...
When the world gets especially depressing, as it is now, it is very hard for we chronic depressives to update our blogs. I guess it's time for more "short subjects."
Cliven Bundy and Donald Sterling
Two racists in the news, one a hero to Fox commentators and the other a recipient of awards from the NAACP, are a lot less depressing than some of the other shit going on.
Bundy has stolen over a million dollars in grazing fees from the American public over the past ten years, but because he's stolen it from the government, it was okay by Fox. When he started blowing off about how blacks would be better off in slavery, Fox thought it best to back off. Oops!
Sterling, who changed his name from Tokowitz, probably is a self-hating Jew as well as a racist. Well, who cares? It's just sports, after all, and the NBA has kicked him to the curb. It took a little too long for the NAACP to suspend his latest recognition after the shit hit the fan, but he'd given the group a hell of a lot of money. Gag me with a spoon.
John Kerry's use of the work "apartheid" was right as rain. All Mahmoud Abbas has to do is dissolve the Palestinian Authority, and leave Israel in total control. That would be apartheid, no matter what AIPAC has to say about it.
Honestly, I'm not sure why the Kiev "authorities" should have any more authority than than the pro-Russian "groups" in the east. Neither bunch was elected, and they're both occupying government buildings.
That is not to say that the Yanokovich kleptocrats were especially legitimate, given how they looted a couple of billion bucks from a country that didn't have it to spare. Well, money is money, and nothing else much matters.
