  1. Your opportunist aversion to formulating alternative policy for workers to respond to makes this kind of thing look like pathological sectarianism or even worse racism. Whatever it is it won’t be attracting anybody to Marxism.

  2. Agreed, this is poorly done. If you want to make an argument about imperialism and capitalism, do that, this just wastes time.

  3. I don’t mind. For me it symbolizes my disappointment with Obama’s policies. Guantanamo still active, public freedoms still being trampled upon, media industry destroying privacy, TSA still doing its thing, etc.
    It should have gone so much better …

  4. I think the first US President to have the intestinal perfidy to decree that he’s judge, jury & executioner of every human being on the planet — whose abolished 800 years of civilized jurisprudence by putting the final nail into the coffin of the Great Writ of Habeas Corpus (Google Eric Holder’s recent speech at Northwestern University) — deserves plenty of shit smeared on his face — but on the other hand it’s true we have a responsibility to educate the masses why the first Black President amounts to the same as the first Clarence Thomas, Condoleeza Rice or Colin Powell.

    It’s a historical & sociological fact that non-white peoples have never been susceptible to Red Baiting. Thus it would be a damned shame should some Black youth who maybe at 18 voted for Obama in ’08 and who3 years later just got violated walking down the street in an arbitrary search & humiliated by some Brooklyn cops, who then turned to say some of the later writings of Malcolm X, and then decided to research Marxism as an answer for why his people have been so historically oppressed, and then to find this blog, as it might easily be taken out of context, looking at first glance like so many other reactionary sites full of degenerate crackers & right wing fukwads.

    I laughed at the picture & appreciate the humor…. I’m just saying.

  5. And just to balance it out a bit – yes I’m very disappointed with Obama – but it just may be that he can’t accomplish much in the current gruesome political climate:

  6. This is a truly disgusting, in fact emetic, image. Congratulations.

    No matter what wins the so-called election, things not only can but certainly will get catastrophically worse for the 99% after the next election–and this directly as a result of the fraudulent “mandate” and the “compromises” descending therefrom. This is the reality for which America, and therefore the world, must prepare.

    If you aren’t puking your guts out, you should be. Unless, of course, you’re past the puking stage.

    The test of that is to pull your head back over the gunwhales and take a good look at the other stinking assholes in the boat with you. If you don’t heave then–and they don’t decide to kill you–you may be ready to die in a revolution.

    In the end, it all comes down to body odor, excrement, rotting flesh, and shit-assed Yuppie whoremongers going goo goo goo over their revolting fucking pets.

    Funny since he’s one of the biggest reasons for “the current gruesome political climate” insofar as he bolsters the political strength of the 1% that he serves at every chance he gets.

    The first big vote he made in the Illinois Senate was to vote on the side of credit card companies & big banks to revamp the nation’s bankruptcy laws against the 99%.

    The lucky one percenters paid Obama back by bankrolling his Presidential campaign.

    He ran on a platform of escalating the war in Afghanistan (he kept that promise) so now amidst a great depression he squanders $2 billion per week torturing & slaughtering some of the poorest people on earth and enriches the 1% who make up the war profiteering business, you know, parasites like Halliburton, all the weapons makers, and of course the oil monopolies who charge the Pentagon $400 per gallon for every drop of fuel used in that neverending criminal war with a mission that nobody in the government can define: http://thehill.com/homenews/administration/63407-400gallon-gas-another-cost-of-war-in-afghanistan-

    He lied to underwater homeowners that he’d help them but never really lifted a finger.

    He greenlighted Bush’s $3/4 trillion bank bailout which was the largest transference of wealth from the 99% to the 1% in human history.

    He’s gone out of his way to shield the bankers & stock market swindlers that caused the crash from any prosecution.

    He’s prosecuted more Whistleblowers than all the other presidents in our lifetimes combined, creating a climate of fear for anybody who wishes to expose corporate malfeasance which is rampant.

    He let BP call all the important shots during the Gulf Oil spill disaster which has been swept under the rug by the commercial press.

    He’s murdered the last vestiges of civil liberties & due process under constitutional law by decreeing he’s the judge, jury & executioner of every living soul on the planet.

    So as you can see he’s actually managed to accomplish a helluva lot…. for the 1%.

  8. I forgot to add that he also allowed the insurance companies to write their own health care reform legislation and then pawned that garbage off on the public as some sort of progressive victory, even though over 75% of the public would have backed him in a fight for a single payer option, meaning that regardless of the “political climate” his instincts are to serve the 1%.

    The ruling class no doubt pinch themselves every morning, still unable to believe how lucky they were to successfully engineer Obama’s election.

    Only with the help of duped liberals & earstwhile progressives will he manage to win another term.

  9. Glen Day’s link is a bastion of Alex Jone’s type Truthers, Birthers, Tea Baggers, and Illuminati mongers, that is, they’re Obama voters turned inside out.
