When Marathon Became Snickers

Oh dear Lord, these are ugly times, and we would do well not to forget. Blair is sending 650 "poor Limey suckers" off to their doom in order to disprove recent comments by John Kerry concerning this bogus "Coalition of The Willing" who’ve been slaughtering Iraqis like pigs for am awful long time now. So.

If Bush gets back in, within a less than a year 30 states will ban abortion. Welcome back coathanger, little sister bouncing on her elder’s belly, life threatening backstreet butchery, mangles babies all over.

If I hear another person tell me there is no difference between the Republican and Democratic candidates, I may have to kill them.

In 1993, Bill Clinton lifted a ban on abortions in the army, (first imposed by Regan in ’88) which, crushingly, was reinstated two years later by Congress. As it is, the only exemptions from the ban come if the "servicewoman" in question can prove the pregnancy to be life threatening, or that she has been raped.

1,012 American servicewomen were raped in 2003.

Countless more are routinely coerced into sex with senior officers quite regularly.

I mean, what else would you expect them to do? Rape is what being a man is about.

Did you hear the one about Nixon’s "Vietnam Veterans For A Just Peace" trying to stomp John Kerry back in the 60s? How Nixon was positioning Vietnam Vet John O’Neill to head the thing? O’Neill being the crazed freak heading those Swiftboat Veterans For Truth. Oh yes. Ho ho ho. Nothing ever changes.

It is this sort of realization which leads many of us to opt out of any kind of struggle, debate, or even thought on the Matters. Why give a shit if the same evil swine will be pulling the same swine tricks to keep them and their swine rich pals in power? One of Kerry’s chief advisers is the side-swapped creator of the ingenious "War On Drugs". He’s a Zionist. KRS-One says "Voting in a corrupt society adds more corruption," reasoning that "America has to commit suicide if the world is to be a better place."

Which could be true, to an extent, but I think America just needs to realize what it is, and has been doing for so long. Just like us. We invented that shit. We were the Grand Daddies of Imperial Evil!

In the eighties, a chocolate bar going under the name of "Marathon" changed its name to that of its US counterpart, "Snickers". Talk to any Britisher about the eighties, and that will inevitably come into the conversation. People spaz out about that, to this very day, as if the event involved actual murder and only happened last week.

This is hugely significant, I now realize. That was a symbol. The world was not ours anymore.

For as long as anyone could remember, the United Kingdom, or, in actuality, England, had ruled the globe, had been running things. It was our culture that others adopted. And now, things were different, and how different they were, and were to become, was plain for all to see, in eight letters printed on a shiny piece pf plastic wrapped around some fucking chocolate.

And now the Guardian thinks it can help get Bush out by having its readers write patronizing letters to inhabitants of swing states. And Americans who live here write quite erroneous drivel about how Anti-American attitudes in this country are actually rooted in anti-Semitism. HAHAHAHA! I read Julie Burchill saying something similar last year, and didn’t take it very seriously, as she is naturally inclined to being an ass, but this Carol Gould person actually seems to believe the poisonous crap she writes. This whole notion that if you object to Israel’s treatment of the Palestinians (for that is the root of so much of this, pretend otherwise or not) then you are an ANTI SEMITE and your opinion is invalid and RACIST is about as foolish as notions get.

Right, I could go on for a while here, but I need to make songs.

Oh, check this - Bush on a proposed draft: "My opponent seems to be willing to say almost anything he thinks will benefit him politically. After standing on the stage, after the debates, I made it very plain we will not have an all-volunteer army."

Ho ho ho.
