Beware the Backlash Yet to Come
by Saab Lofton

"[Pat Buchanan's article entitled 'In the Long Run, Is the GOP Dead?'] is a fatalistic prediction that the GOP [Grand Ole Party or the Republican Party] is doomed because it can't promise enough free lunches for the inexorably rising percentage of non-white voters."
--Matt Taibbi, Rolling Stone Magazine

... I prefer the term Freedom Lunches myself ...

"How we would be reacting if Iraqi commandos landed at George W. Bush's compound, assassinated him and dumped his body in the Atlantic? Uncontroversially, his crimes vastly exceed bin Laden's ..."
--Professor Noam Chomsky

We the people were expected to react like Pavlov's dog and squeal like groupies simply because Osama bin Laden was executed in order to avenge the deaths of 9-11, but I say thee NAY! So three thousand people died that day -- so the fuck what ..?

Oh, Bomb A Country, Part II
by Saab Lofton

"The Senate approved $91 billion in funding for the wars in Afghanistan, Iraq and Pakistan yesterday [May 21st, 2009] ... The no-strings-attached legislation comes as a deep disappointment to progressive members of Congress, as well as to anti-war voters, many of whom hoped the Obama administration would mark a significant break with Bush-style war funding."
--Maya Schenwar, truthout.org, May 22nd, 2009

by Saab Lofton

"Money is a terrible thing. Why do people work at jobs in Star Trek? Why does someone become a baker? Because the family is going to starve to death? No. People become bakers because certain people love the smell of things baking."
--Gene Roddenberry, from Yvonne Fern's book, The Last Conversation

The Real Welfare Cheats
by Saab Lofton

"Probably the worst part of the S&L bailout is the message it sends to high-flying con men. It says, 'Plunder all you want. As long as your political connections are solid, you'll get to keep the money and probably won't suffer more than a slap on the wrist.' (Charles Keating only went to jail because his abuses were so extreme; he was the exception, not the rule.)"

Beware of False Prophets
by Saab Lofton

In the comics, Spider-Man's superheroic career was often hindered by the libel of J. Jonah Jameson's Daily Bugle, and boy, can I relate -- be it online stalkers or right-wing hate mail, my reputation has taken more hits than a crack pipe, and as D.J. Casey Kasem would say, the hits just keep on comin' ..!

They Keep Us Safe And Free

Xerxes: There will be no glory in your sacrifice. I will erase even the memory of Sparta from the histories. Every piece of Greek parchment shall be burned and every Greek historian and every scribe shall have their eyes put out and their tongues cut from their mouths. Why, uttering the very name of Sparta or Leonidas will be punishable by death. The world will never know you existed at all!

Obama, Where Art Thou?
by Saab Lofton

"Obama will not fulfill that potential for change unless he is enveloped by a social movement, which is angry enough, powerful enough, insistent enough, that he fills his abstract phrases about change with some real content."
--Professor Howard Zinn, author of A People's History of the United States

"Politicians are like weather vanes; our job is to make the wind blow."
