Captain Oblivious Rides Again

A high-speed drag race. A faulty hood latch. The driver’s view is blocked, and the gaping maw of certain death opens to quench its eternal hunger for blood and souls.

Hurtling through the space-time continuum, warping the laws of physics, a hero arrives in the nick of time.

In possession of unlimited mental powers yet untested, Captain Oblivious wrests the will of the power steering from the speeding vehicle. He laughs in the face of danger. “Ha, ha, ha,” muses Our Hero, as he maneuvers the machine away from peril and toward the relative safety of the raceway’s emergency sand trap.

Unbeknownst to Our Hero, the driver has already panicked. The driver screams as he jams on the brake pedal with both feet, and Captain Oblivious is thrown off at high velocity. Like a watermelon seed pinched between forefinger and thumb, Captain Oblivious is spit from the universe at the speed of whatever. The car slides to a safe stop in the sand.

With his mind swept clean of the memory of recent events, Captain Oblivious finds himself squatting naked in the vapor-ridden 10th dimension, fuzzily pondering The Overnight Open Thread.

    Barrett Brown is a shameless self promoter cut from the same cloth as P.T. Barnum, IMO. Of course that is his perogotive, but at the end of a day it’s all about Barrett. This group Anonymous is useful to him at the moment, and at the moment it ceases to be so he will move on to his next project. All of his talk about ‘human liberty’ leaves me colder than an Icelandic cod.

    When it comes to spreading liberty in the Arab Muslim world, they have a completely different culture than ours.

    We came to liberty from Judeo-Christian values. Arab Muslims come from a culture of tribalism.

    Yeah, they wanted out from under Mubarak in Egypt -- but they’re perfectly willing to have their hands and heads chopped off by the Muslim Brotherhood instead.

    They aren’t looking for REAL freedom -- they just want to tell their current dictators to take a hike so that they can submit to Islamist dictators instead.

    It’s not America’s fault that they aren’t part of the western world’s Judeo-Christian culture.

    AFP -- Arab League chief Amr Mussa said on Sunday the organisation will ask the UN Security Council to impose a no-fly zone over Gaza, which Israel has pounded with air strikes in response to rocket fire.

    Somewhere, Samantha Power is smiling: http://www.france24.com/en/20110410-arab-league-amr-mussa-appeal-no-fly-zone-gaza-israel-air-strikes-libya-un-palestine

    Hey Eliana, what are your thoughts on the potential fall of the Assad regime? What’s the buzz on the street over there?


  27. Eliana
    27 | April 11, 2011 12:16 am

    As for Bush’s “Operation Iraqi Freedom” -- I know what the main point of this was and I still agree with it.

    Saddam-wannabees were waiting in the wings to be the new mega-billionaires who would use Iraq’s $400+ billion per year in oil revenues in their fight against the west.

    Bush wanted the country to use the money for Iraqis instead.

    Osama bin Laden only needed half a million dollars to perpetrate 9/11 -- imagine what terrorists could do with $400+ billion per year.

    If the oil rich countries spent their money on their own people rather than becoming mega-billionaires while their people suffer -- they wouldn’t spend so much of their time seething.

    Bush was trying to turn the money into something for the people so that the local thugs wouldn’t take Saddam’s place.

    @ MrPaulRevere:
    I will second that. When I said the interview was lame, it was BB to whom I was referring. Rodan did a fine job, but BB is such a twit, he got tiresome to listen to. But Rodan did us a service by having him on, because it made crystal clear what BB is, so we don’t have to waste any more of our time on him.

    @ MrPaulRevere:

    Assad and his crime family are such horribly bad people while being courted heavily by the likes of John Kerry -- I don’t think the “monster we know is preferable to the monster we don’t know” situation applies to Syria.

    It seems people are hoping he will fall because he’s already doing some of the worst things that a Syrian leader could possibly do.

    The Muslim Brotherhood wouldn’t be worse than Assad, IMO.


  32. 32 | April 11, 2011 12:19 am

    @ Rodan:
    No, Libertarians believe in limited government. Anarchists are the farthest to the right in the political spectrum in that they advocate the complete absence of government, i.e., no law. Lawless.

    @ Rodan:

    You do a great job on the radio show!

    BB’s accent was difficult for some of us to understand, but then you came right back clear as a bell with your Queens accent!!

    Seriously!

    Much of what I understood in the early part of the show was only due to your response to what he’d said.

    Later, it got easier to understand him -- but then it slipped again to where it was tough to understand him.

    You are always understandable.

    Anarchists are neither right nor left, although they can be either.

    A one-dimensional figure like a line is too limited to properly represent all forms of political alignment.

    True anarchists are not really even in the same plane as that line. But some so-called “anarchists” tilt towards one end of the line or the other, or are used by movements that are part of the classic line. E.G. your “Black Bloc” anarchists that riot at the various G8 meetings, are in fact tools of International Communism, even if they don’t admit it.

    A comment on a website that’s quoting Obama’s people as saying that Trump has a ZERO percent chance of being hired by the American people as president in 2012:

    They keep try to dismiss the birth certificate issue, but it will NEVER go away. Show us your bc obama.. and while you’re at it. How about showing us your college sat scores and records and your passport. Did you flunk out of Occidental? Were you registered as a foreign aid student? Did you ever attend Columbia University where no one knew who you were? Were you a drug currier in Pakistan? Is that why you had to change your name from Barry Soretoro to Barack Obama? IS that also why you left NYC to get a social security number that belonged to another dead young person??

    Who the heck are ya Obama? Regardless who you are, George Soros helped you get elected so you can usher in the NWO.

    Obama’s not going to slink away from questions being raised by Trump (questions that should have been answered four years ago).

    I see your argument, but I disagree. As tools they are tools of the left. The far left is communism, dictatorship, total governmental control. The opposite is no governmental control and no rule of law, i.e., anarchy. Anarchists claim to be for freedom, but by definition, they enable the exact opposite.

    Obama’s people are also doing the “yay, PLEASE nominate Trump so that we can beat the crap out of him in 2012″ that they’ve been saying about Palin since Obama won in 2008.

    Trump is personable while disassembling Obama.

    I don’t think Obama has any idea how much damage Trump can do to him (and will do if he runs for president).

    He’s a viable candidate, too.

    We have a president who came from nowhere and ran for president after two years of barely participating as a US Senator. We still don’t know who he is but he raised a billion dollars to run for president.

    The American people have known Trump for decades.

    If Obama can be elected out of nowhere, Trump can be elected.

    Hmmm, file this one serious under “Things that make you go Hmmm”

    The memo that ‘proves aliens landed at Roswell’… released online by the FBI

    A bizarre memo that appears to prove that aliens did land in New Mexico prior to 1950 has been published by the FBI.

    The bureau has made thousands of files available in a new online resource called The Vault.

    Among them is a memo to the director from Guy Hottel, the special agent in charge of the Washington field office in 1950.

    In the memo, whose subject line is ‘Flying Saucers’, Agent Hottel reveals that an Air Force investigator had stated that ‘three so-called flying saucers had been recovered in New Mexico’.

    The investigator gave the information to a special agent, he said. The FBI has censored both the agent and the investigator’s identity.

    Agent Hottel went on to write: ‘They were described as being circular in shape with raised centers, approximately 50 feet in diameter.

    Each one was occupied by three bodies of human shape but only 3 feet tall,’ he stated.

    The bodies were ‘dressed in a metallic cloth of a very fine texture. Each body was bandaged in a manner similar to the blackout suits used by speed flyers and test pilots.’
    Was it true? An image allegedly showing one of the aliens that were autopsied at Roswell in 1947

    Was it true? An image allegedly showing one of the aliens that were autopsied at Roswell in 1947

    He said that the informant, whose identity was censored in the memo, claimed the saucers had been found in New Mexico ‘due to the fact that the Government has a very high-powered radar set-up in that area and it is believed the radar interferes with teh controlling mechanism of the saucers’.

    He then stated that the special agent did not attempt to investigate further.

    The release of the secret memo is likely to fuel conspiracy theorists’ claims of a government cover-up.

    The town of Roswell in New Mexico became infamous after reports that a flying saucer had crashed in the desert near a military base there on or around July 2, 1947.

    The bodies of aliens were said to have been recovered and autopsied by the U.S. military, but American authorities allegedly covered the incident up

    Good Morning Blogmocracy! Today is another glorious day in the Reign of Emperor Barack Hussein I, Pasha of the United States and Defender of the Faith Ummah! There are 575 Days Until the 2012 Presidential Election! Well, Obama came out swinging on his Budget. I don’t know all the numbers (probably as fake as the ones in the ObamaCare debate that had ObamaCare saving billions of dollars), but he is going for the thing that is most popular with Democrats: raising taxes. Don’t believe the Democrats when they say they are only raising taxes on the “wealthy”. What they mean isn’t the uber-rich like themselves. Thye mean the upper middle class; the people who could become wealthy. It won’t generate that much revenue, but it will hit small businesses that file as individuals. That is Obama’s real target, even more than the upper middle class. He wants those nasty small businesses to just go away. You can’t unionize a shop with four employees, so it is no good to the Democrats. In other joyous news, they have another ‘Roadmap’ to Peace in the Middle East. If nothing told you the Libyan Civil War was going to be a long, drawn out affair, that should.

    It will be interesting to see where this goes. The author of the piece echos my sentiments on the subject:

    I’m all for tough sentences for violent criminals in general, and criminals guilty of gun violence in particular. But once a criminal has served his or her sentence, they should have all their Constitutional rights restored. Yes, this includes child molesters and other sex offenders. Wait! If these deranged criminals are too dangerous to place in society—and I believe they are—they should be sentenced to life in prison without parole or worse. But this idea of creating two classes of citizens—one with full rights and one without—is profoundly un-American.

    Indeed.

    I like rap.

    I didn’t appreciate it fully until I’d heard a couple of Hebrew rap songs. Now I kinda like rap overall.

    Hebrew rap is funny because it’s very easy to rhyme things in Hebrew since the whole language is based on verb roots that have common prefixes, in-fixes and suffixes (patterns that show the common tenses and genders of different verb roots).

    Verb roots share a lot of suffixes so it means that a lot of Hebrew words rhyme with other Hebrew words.

    The Hebrew rap rhythm really gets into it with all the rhyming going on. It’s very catchy.

    The intergalactic visitors might like us as a species if they heard Hebrew rap first. :-)


  97. 97 | April 11, 2011 6:10 am

    Rap is nothing more that recycled “Beat Poetry” from the 40s and 50s. And it sucked back then, too.

    One thing is certain -- whatever it is, it isn’t music. Even a didgeredo (SP?) has two notes.

    Well, I just listened to my favorite Hebrew rap song and I can’t stop smiling.

    There’s something to be said for it -- depending on how it’s done, I guess.

    The leader singer is kinda talking but the other people in the group sing their responses. In any case, it’s a really cool song.

    Sure is early out this morning. The forecast didn’t say anything about that. Rap reminds me of those jump rope songs the girls used to “sing” while jumping rope. In my view, a key element of music is melody. Rap has no melody so it isn’t music. Ranting and chanting but not music.

    U.S. Authorities Can’t Really Fault Al-Qaeda For Deadly Bombing Of Carnival Cruise Ship

    ‘Those Things Represent Everything That’s Wrong With America,’ Officials Say

    WASHINGTON—Following Monday’s deadly terrorist attack on a Carnival Cruise Line ship, U.S. officials have had difficulty issuing a stern condemnation of the incident, saying that while any act of terrorism is inexcusable, they couldn’t completely blame al-Qaeda for wanting to blow up what is essentially a giant, floating symbol of everything that is truly god-awful about America.

    The ship, a 15-deck, $740 million vessel that slowly traveled up and down the Atlantic Ocean while its passengers continuously ate and drank—referred to by Carnival as a “fun ship”—was destroyed in an act U.S. authorities have said is “not completely senseless” and “actually makes a pretty solid point about American excess run amuck.”

    “Terrorism is a crime against humanity for which there can never be any justification,” Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano told reporters. “But then again, so is a 130,000-ton boat with an indoor ice skating rink, 24-hour buffet access, and a dance club called the Caliente Lounge. To condemn al-Qaeda outright for this attack would be to ignore the fact that, well, you can’t really argue with them on this one…..

    @ MikeA:

    My own thinking on the issue has undergone a change as the Left have been more and more brazen about their support for, lust for actually, the act of abortion. Pro-choice, but choice to do what? As we saw with Sarah Palin, make the wrong choice and the Left will castigate you for not killing your baby. I would de-federalize the issue, though, and make it a State and local thing like other forms of homicide. In that I am less an absolutist than my opposite numbers.

    Cold Civil War update. I don’t agree with all the things stated in this article, but I think it is interesting that the Idea that we are as divided as we have been since the last Civil War is becomming more prevalent. Their is an anti-Christian bent to the article that isn’t surprising, considering the source. I would note that Abolition was an exclusively religious movement, explicitly so. In that sense religion may have contributed to the war, but would one really wish Abolitionist sentiment hadn’t grown and triumphed? Really?

    the Engine of recovery is slowing down

    Drivers Start to Cut Back on Gas as Prices Rise

    With the price of gas above $3.50 a gallon in all but one state, there are signs that Americans are cutting back on driving, reversing a steady increase in demand for fuel as the economy improves.

    Gas sales have fallen for five straight weeks, the first time that has happened since November, according to MasterCard SpendingPulse, which tracks spending at 140,000 service stations nationwide.

    Before the decline, demand was increasing for two months. Some analysts had expected the trend to continue because the economic recovery is picking up, adding 216,000 jobs in March.

    “More people are going to work,” said John Gamel, director of gasoline research for MasterCard. “That means more people are driving and they should be buying more gas.”

    Instead, about 70 percent of the nation’s major gas-station chains say sales have fallen, according to a March survey by the Oil Price Information Service. More than half reported a drop of 3 percent or more — the sharpest since the summer of 2008, when gas soared past $4 a gallon

    Washington is busy anointing winners and losers in the 11th hour spending deal struck late Friday to avert government shutdown, but meanwhile the staffs of the House and Senate appropriations committees are busy at work negotiating the fine print

    The agreement was on overall funding levels and some of the more controversial policy riders,” said Jennifer Hing, spokeswoman for House Appropriations Committee Chairman Hal Rogers, “the rest of the policy riders and funding levels for individual programs are still under negotiation.”

    Since this is the overnight thread I can’t be OT, can i ? ;-)

    I’m so sorry to have missed the blogmocracy radio-show yesterday. Since the show isn’t yet in the archive I can only refer to what I’ve read about BB and know about Anonymous.

    BB have you already renounced your US-American citizenship ? You can’t call yourself an anarchist while holding a citizenship, this would be inconsistent with the idea of anarchism and of course I don’t have to tell you that you can’t be an anarchist on one level of the society but not another one. There is no part-time anarchism.

    One here on the thread called you an idealist. No, honey, you’re not an idealist you’re what is called in sociology or economy “a free rider.” To live on other peoples expense is NOT anarchism, not on an economical basis, not on the basis of ethics and not on the basis of intellectual property.

    First: most of the time you live on the expense of your family and your friends. This wouldn’t be a problem (of course it is problem with the idea of anarchism) if you wouldn’t violate

    Second: ethics. Remember the little stories from your mother and your teacher about justice ? (Most mothers/teachers could tell similar stories about their children/students and justice ;-) nothing special about this). You intentionally let this stories be told to show what an idealistic person you are. I say bullsh*t. Rules are only made for others not for you. This is your credo. You do remember the story about your girlfriend who let you live in her apartment for months without pay but with only one rule: don’t have sex in my bed with other women. You violated this rule immediately and if this weren’t enough you made money out of this and humiliated this hard working woman in public by publishing the story in a magazine. Let me be clear: you’re not an anarchist on an ethical level but an unprincipled person without a clue what anarchism means. This leads me to

    Third: everyone familiar with “Anonymous” knows that there is no such person as a “spokesperson” for Anonymous. That some members on the lowest level of “Anonymous” applaud you for “explaining what Anonymous” allegedly is, doesn’t make you a spokesperson for the group. Btw.: a “spokesperson” would contradict their self-conception and image. You’re again a free rider on the intellectual concept of “Anonymous”. You use the group to make you more popular and to make money out of it. This is only self-promotion and has nothing to do with anarchism.

    Now let us speak about anarchism: there are three main groups of anarchism: libertarian anarchism, traditional anarchism and neo-anarchism (the generation of the 1968′s). Every kind of this groups is splintered into a lot of under-groups. But there is one common thing to every kind of anarchism: it leads to corporatism and it is hard work. Yes, my dear, you read correct: hard work. You claim to be a more “right wing anarchist” so I suppose you’re more leaning to the kind of “libertarian anarchism”. As a libertarian anarchist you’ve to be unprincipled, brutal and without any ethics (I suppose you’ve read Hobbes’s Leviathan, have you ?) and ok, this would fit for you but there is a but, a big but: you’ve to be aware that there are much more people out in the society who are indeed poor and weak but who will join another to fight you! They will fight you 24/7 and soon you’ll be looking for like minded people and out of a sudden you’re in a corporation. The second way would be to make treaties with the majority of the weak and poor and look what happens: anarchism is gone b’cause who will guarantee the compliance of the treaty ? So you need a state, my friend, which has the authority to guarantee the compliance of the treaty.

    We know for sure that the second main group doesn’t work. At least one of these groups worked for a limited time under very special circumstances: the Kibbuz. Yes, there are still Kibbuzim in Israel but they are now economically based on capitalism even if the members are politically left of the Merezt-party. And, honey, I really don’t see you hard working 10 hours a day 6 days a week while after your work-shift is done you work additional hours for the community. But even those Kibbuzim are dependent on the government for building streets, providing health care, security etc.

    Hm, maybe you prefer the third group, the “autonomous” anarchists ? Most of these groups are not only violent but also deeply anti-Semitic and anti-USA. If it wouldn’t be so sad it would be funny to see how the “autonomous” fight neo-Nazis in the streets but march together with them if it goes against Israel or if it goes for the support of sadistic murderers and dictators like Saddam Hussein. Not to mention that they too live on the expense of house owners whose houses they have occupied and/or of social welfare. And, my dear, to be honest: you’re to old to join these groups.

    Now lets have a closer look how anarchistic the group “Anonymous” is. To cut a long story short: the group is neither in its structure nor in its goals anarchistic. A handful of anonymous people on the top of the group decide anonymous who or what is the next target. This is not anarchism but one of the worst forms of elitism. To demand from a government extorsively to release a minister b’cause they don’t like the way he handles the fight against child pornography is a criminal behavior against the people of this country (Australia). This is dictatorship in its ugliest form. I don’t claim that every cyber attack is done by “Anonymous” but “Anonymous” is the role model for cyber vandalism. To claim that “Anonymous” played a prominent role in the Arab uprising against their dictatorships is hilarious. Most of these people don’t even know that such a group exists and most of this middle aged demonstrators (and they were the main supporting group) didn’t even have access to computers. Not b’cause they couldn’t afford one but b’cause of the lack of infrastructure. To be clear: the internet (facebook, twitter, youtube) was a tool for not the source of the revolutions in the ME. And they were a small tool compared to the experiences those people made on a daily basis in their lifes.

    Honey, do us all a favor: stop telling us how wonderful anarchism is, it isn’t. Stop telling us how wonderful the group “Anonymous” is, it isn’t. The world is already a mess we don’t need more of it. And please, please !, stop promoting yourself as the white knight in the shiny knight’s armor of idealism. You’re at best a freeloader of questionable ideologies and cyber vandalism and cyber extortion respectively.

    I’m just glad someone in Europe is arguing against this:

    Not everyone in Europe was happy with the visit. One local newspaper in Germany wrote that it is a “lie” that Judea and Samaria exists and that in reality it is the “West Bank” of Palestine. In Cologne, where Jews have lived since the 4th century and where the entire community was slaughtered in the First Crusade, the city’s mayor called the visitors “unwelcome guests.”

    just a thought to make you smile on a monday morning

    If Wisconsin Is the Rule… Obama Will Lose 12 States He Won in 2008

    In the 2008 election Obama took Wisconsin by 13.9% of the vote.

    In the 2010 election Republicans took several Wisconsin state offices in a wave election.

    In the April 2011 election the conservative candidate Justice David Prosser won the supreme court position by .5% of the vote despite the nuclear firestorm the left hurled at him.

    If Wisconsin is a sign… Obama will lose 12 states in 2012 that he won in 2008.
