Quote of the Day

MOMCOM is an acronym we use to symbolize the Military Oil Media Complex, because the old descriptions, such as "Military Industrial Complex (MIC)", leave out what the U.S. Department of Energy calls "the lifeblood of America’s economy" - oil, and also leave out the mouthpiece of power - the media (BTW, it is not the free press).

I agree, and I also suggest making it MOMCCOM - an extra "C" for Congressional. Not only does Congress primarily do the bidding of these huge conglomerates, but its members use their positions of public trust to enrich themselves; not only while its members are designated *lawmakers*, but for the rest of their lives. And they do it all while using very generous benefits which are paid for by you and I. As long as they live. Do you have benefits like that?

"Do you have benefits like that?"

Benefits? I have none. Zero. Nada. Zilch.

Yes, I'm living the American dream...

By the way, I think it should be called BOMMCCOM (Banking-Oil-Military-Media-Congressional Complex).

Wow, I agree - that's great! More inclusive and accurate, definitely.

I"m not sure which is worse, the Military or Wall Street/Fed Love Affair.

Now it seems the banksters and fucksters on Wall Street spent all of our tax "gifts", didn't get enough for their financial orgasmic pleasures so Ben wants to give them more!

Yet we're supposed to vote for the guy who could put a stop to this right now...but won't? And we all know if the other ass is elected it'll be worse?

Do most of Bush's ilk still work for Obama?

So do we drown in 10 feet of water or 100?
