Wading through the Static

You too can look ten years younger – in 60 minutes no less! Tha’s righ’, REDUCE wrinkles, REDUCE crow’s feet, REDUCE laugh lines! Your gun turret mounted Toyota Yaris can get something like 40 miles per gallon in the city AND with its 50 caliber machine gun, trips to the drive thru have never been FASTER…As if all the static on the net and snow of television weren’t enough…Condoleezza warns against Armenia Bill, a bill that declares the massacre of 1.5 million Armenians to be genocide…Turkey, of course disputes the claim [like 1.5 million Armenians just dropped dead from the ‘chaos and confusion’ of the collapsing Ottoman Empire during WWI] and the guys in System of A Down must be tugging furiously at their elaborate goatees and cursing Rice for not being more granular. What could you expect from a country named after a bird that drowns in the rain from looking up during a storm?

Just another example of imperialism and the power of the military industrial complex sweeping unsightly ‘dust’ under the atrocity carpet, where ghosts of Darfur await release, 800,000 dead Iraqi civilians from the illegal invasion await justice and Americans prep for the x-mas buying season. This little capitalist piggy laments; It’ll be a tight year dear…might not be able to get Jimmy that new X-Box 360…poor little Sally won’t be getting that iPod Touch…we’ve got this foreclosure that is inevitable and it looks like the guys down in the factory are going to walk off the job again cause all of our parts that were made in China have been recalled…it’s a rough existence to be middle class and brown/black/yellow/mostly white Dear, yes – rough indeed. The new Radiohead will be in my inbox this morning…tha’s nice honey, burn a couple copies for the carpool group….
