About Me

Gee - my profile info didn't migrate from the old DU I guess? The main thing - 90% refers to the maximum allowable percentage of nitromethane fuel permitted in modern NHRA Top Fuel and Funny cars. Which is what makes current "nostalgia nitro" so cool - you can still "tip the can" and run straight nitro, if you want to. I'm an aging northeast liberal with an overdeveloped justice gland. OUR INSTITUTIONS ARE INFESTED WITH GREEDY AND CORRUPT SOCIOPATHS

I'm not that partisan

I prefer aspiring to the higher principals they taught me our country was based on, back in my 1960 to 1972 public school days.

We have become everything they taught us was bad about communist Russia in those times. Who knew that 40 years later we would allow our country to take the form of communist Russia, totalitarian police state wise.

Sure, they aren't using this infrastructure in earnest, YET, but why the hell do they keep building it?

They also taught us that it's illegal for real good reasons to never use the military against it's own citizens. Boy has that changed.

I've never wavered in my revulsion to all the extra constitutional stuff the Obama admin has done not the least of which is to carry on with the Unconstitutional GWB train wreck of democracy policies.

I am repelled by the if Obama violated the Constitution it's OK because he's one of us memes.

Larry Summers? WTF? Why should I like that stupid plutocratic weasel just because Obama seems to? At least Elizabeth Warren and Alan Grayson are still fighting for progressive values in earnest.

Your fears are well grounded

In basic logic, facts and mathematics.

The chances of my own government wrecking my life are about 100,000% greater than my being a victim of a terrorist attack.

I AM NOT AFRAID OF TERRORISTS

Rationally, there's a whole lot of other stuff that's going to get me before a terrorist attack. Hell, I'm overweight. That alone has got a tremendously higher probability of killing me than a fucking terrorist! Yet I still find myself going through the Burger King drive through now and then.

As I've seen Thom Hartmann quoted here, more Americans die in bathroom accidents each year than died in the 9-11 attacks. Where oh where are our government total safety awareness surveillance programs for the death traps that are modern American bathrooms?

I demand NSA operated helicopter drones hover outside my bathrooms 24/7 to monitor any potential dangerous activity happening inside my bathrooms!

After all, all our elected officials took an oath to keep us safe!
