H/t to ChrisM my MP3Angel for the news and commentary audio files.

[After the commentary there will be a short grammar lesson intended to illustrate, in so many ways, the situation the American public is in... This tutorial IS NOT safe for work. But do remember to use this lesson... Practice it loudly and proudly whenever possible.]

Speaking of Semantics... A concise recent history of how words and concepts get 'twisted' to suit the needs of warmongers
"My basic problem with the R2P (Responsibility To Protect) approach is that it downplays the role of geopolitics in the diplomacy of both decisions to intervene and to not intervene.

By hiding this fundamental element in the decision process behind a screen of moralizing language talking of R2P rather than humanitarian intervention invites misunderstanding, as well as encourages imperial ambitions."

Read "Can Humanitarian Intervention ever be Humanitarian?" by professor Richard Falk, Albert G. Milbank Professor Emeritus of International Law at Princeton University and Visiting Distinguished Professor in Global and International Studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara [Here]
» This sort of thing has become a 'trend' (MUCH more in the commentary)- For the third week in a row someone has attacked the US embassy compound in Kabul. This time they managed to attack the CIA Station (ie. CIA HQ) with an inside attack by a plumber who'd come to make repairs.

From the Afpak Channel @ Foreign Policy
One American was killed and another wounded Sunday night when an Afghan employed by the U.S. government opened fire on the grounds of what is believed to be the CIA's headquarters in Kabul, housed in the former Ariana Hotel (Post, WSJ, BBC, NYT, Times, AP, Tel, Guardian, McClatchy, AFP, CNN, ABC, Reuters). The attacker was shot dead after nearly 10 minutes of gunfire and a small explosion in the compound, an annex to the U.S. embassy that is the largest overseas CIA station in the world and one of the most secure areas in Kabul.

Officials say they are still unsure of the gunman's motivation for opening fire (NYT, Guardian). The L.A. Times reports on how the recent string of high-profile attacks in Kabul have rattled the city's residents (LAT). [In Full (with links)]
It should be noted that most of the 'residents' in Kabul now days are either foreign to the region (soldiers, mercs, intel officers, 'business'), or are expats who can afford the security teams and blast walls. The areas being attacked ARE NOT areas that typically contain what remains of Kabul's indigenous working and poor Afghan population.

» The Saudi government, in the wake of the 'Arab Spring' revolts, has condescendingly, begrudgingly decided to allow women to vote and run for office in municipal elections... of which there have only been two.. In the NEXT election, which will happen at some yet-to-be-known date in the future. No decision yet on whether the wild women of Saudi Arabia will be allowed to drive an automobile (As a matter of fact the Saudi authorities are about to put a woman on trial for driving), but it is telling that after last year's cash payoff to all Saudi citizens in an attempt to calm them during the turmoil in Egypt, Tunisia, and elsewhere, the Saudi government still felt this measure was necessary.

» Where IS the United Nations? President Saleh has returned to Yemen and on the first day he was back government forces attacked a crowd of 10,000 people in the capital who were not happy about his return. At least forty eight people were killed.

» A straw poll was held at the conservative PAC conference in Orlando Florida over the weekend and Herman Cain, the "Pizza King" wound up winning 37% of the vote with Mitt Romney and Rick Perry trailing by about 15 points.

» President Obama stopped in the Seattle Washington and San Francisco Bay area yesterday. He will hold a "cyber-town hall meeting" today at 11am. Later he's off to San Diego, and Los Angeles, where he'll be at a "House of Blues" (a blues night club) fundraising event. Apropos for the state of the average American's financial situation at the moment.

» FEMA will be officially broke on Wednesday and the next step will PROBABLY be an attempt by Senate Democrats to put together a disaster relief funding plan, with a budget deadline, and concurrent draconian budget cuts, looming aboput five days away.


Have you ever noticed the people who call for "limited government" are the first people to call the city if your grass gets too long?

That's because they're really Fascists... Just like the

This is Razer Raygun saying 'Happy Motoring America...' Enjoy it while you can.


(And PLEASE try to keep your government from killing all the dusky natives!)
