Blame Bites (11/05/2012)

500 Former Generals, Admirals Announce Support for Romney In Powerful Full-Page Ad | The Blaze

Considering how Romney has promised never ever to cut defense spending, I can see why the Military Industrial Complex adores him.

Baltimore monitors all conversations on buses | Natural News

Oh, will the government just start ordering all Americans citizens to have microchips implanted into their brains and get it over with?! You guys aren’t fooling anyone. We all know you’re dying to do it. Enough with this flimsy surveillance and get on with the hardcore police state crap already!

Legalising marijuana in America could deal a huge blow to Mexico's drug traffickers | The Economist

Really? Legalizing Marijuana will take away the power than criminal drug lords have in the black market? No duh!

Obama Campaign Planning to Proclaim Early Victory to ‘Demoralize Romney Supporters’ | The Blaze

Isn’t it a cliché that the one who declares victory before the race is over the one who ends up losing?

Evangelist Claims 1.6 Million Christians Will Write in ‘Jesus Christ’ for President on Tuesday | The Blaze

As much as I believe that Jesus Christ would make for an excellent president, I would much rather people vote for either Gary Johnson or Jill Stein. The only good thing that will come from this is that we will have less theocrats voting for Romney.

Bill Maher Warns Romney Supporters: 'Black People Know Who You Are and They Will Come After You' | NewsBusters

This coming from the same ultra-douche who said that "the go-to rhetoric [of the right is] is, 'Wouldn't it be fun to kill the people we disagree with?'"

Savannah Guthrie: Hurricane Sandy Sent 'Seemingly From Above' to Help Obama Get Re-elected | NewsBusters

Good grief! The only thing more distasteful than claiming a hurricane which destroyed thousands of homes and lives was divine punishment is claiming that it was a divine endorsement of a political candidate.

WashPost Prints Lie of 'Never Been Political' Organizer of an Anti-Romney, Pro-PBS Subsidy March | NewsBusters

Sure. The rally created in response to Romney threatening to cut government funding to PBS (which would neither cut the deficit or harm Sesame Street) is totally not political in nature.

Sarah Palin: Romney 'Deserves A Chance To Lead' | Big Government

Wait, Palin is still relevant?

The S&M Election | Chris Hedges

"I learned at the age of 10, when I was shipped off to a New England boarding school where the hazing of younger boys was the principal form of recreation, that those who hunger for power are psychopathic bastards.…Those who revel in the ability to manipulate and destroy are demented and deformed individuals."

No surprise there. When you have an institution with the sole privilege of utilizing force and coercion on others, you end up attracting psychopaths seeking to use that privilege for their own selfish ends. Good people do not wish to use force and coercion. That’s why we rarely have good politicians.
