John Roberts Is Running For President!


John Roberts' swing-vote for Obamacare is a godsend for Republicans, who really don't want to campaign with five reactionary Supreme Court Justices who overthrew the Congress, and it isn't exactly good news for Obama, who now has to run with a "healthcare reform" bill that even a gung-ho shill for the Democrats like Markos Moulitsas once called "a piece of shit."

Meanwhile all around the idiot blogosphere progressives discover in Roberts a "secret centrist," and his legal résumé is sure to wow an electorate that elected Obama on the basis of not much more than his election as "the first black president of the Harvard Law Review" and a stack of empty promises.

Legal experts will wheeze and stutter over 200 pages of Supreme legal prattle that could prove or disprove almost anything, and it won't occur to many of them that every word of it was designed to promote the personal ambition of John Glover Roberts, who now towers above all other potential Republican candidates for 2016, as if by accident! As if by magic!

As if by law!

Are you made out of macaroons?
Can you sing all the verses of Auld Lang Syne?
Are you really worth saving?

Are you really worth saving, my friend?
Are you really worth saving again and again and again?

Capitalism in India: 5,000,000 Infant Deaths Per Year

"Newborn Deaths Expose India’s Low Health Budget," screams the headline at IPS, but behind those godawful statistics, an even more miserable reality is thinly concealed.

"A report released Jun. 13 by the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) as part of the ‘Countdown to 2015’ initiative placed India’s IMR rate slightly higher at 48 per 1,000 live births. The initiative tracks country-level progress in reducing maternal, newborn and child mortality and involves various partners."

"According to the UNICEF report, Pakistan has an IMR of 70 per 1,000 live births, followed by India with 47, Nepal with 41, Bangladesh with 38 and Sri Lanka with 26."

“In India, the IMR is 47 per 1,000 live births, which translates into 1.25 million infant deaths per year,” Azad said.

So the figure of 1,250,000 Infant deaths per year was based on infant mortality estimated at 47 or 48 per 1000 live births, but in one of the very few hospitals where records were actually examined, G.B. Pant Hospital in Srinagar, summer capital of the state of Kashmir and Jammu...

"Citing the hospital’s records, the report said the facility had witnessed 981 infant deaths in 2010 and 985 in 2011, averaging a high 20 percent mortality – twice the accepted rate for state-run hospitals in India."

20 percent mortality! That's 200 dead infants per 1000 live births!

So when the ridiculously understaffed Indian health service concentrates its meager resources on actually counting dead infants, the real figures for infant mortality in India rise to four times the "official" figures, and instead of 1,250,000, the real total is probably in the neighborhood of...

5,000,000 infant deaths per year in India, that miserable shit-hole of globalized capital.

Tata India

Is the American model of corporate capitalism unique?

Think about it!

And here's a tool to think with, from the great Arundhati Roy!

Tata India!

‎"If moral purity is the criteria for stone-throwing, then the only people
who qualify are those who have been silenced already."

"Oprah came. She said she loved India! It made us proud!"

Shiva Pumpkin

We share millions of genes with a pumpkin!
I'm the suntan of millions of suns!

Welcome to my nutshell!

Shall we sing a duet?
You can borrow my tonsils!

It's the same old song...

God turns into a pumpkin.
Pumpkin turns into God.

We share millions of genes with a pumpkin!
I'm the suntan of millions of suns!

I hired a hog to sodomize Mitt Romney.
Same hog sodomizes Barack Obama!

"What the heck are you doing," I scream!
"I didn't hire you to sodomize Barack Obama!"

"I'm sorry," says the hog,
"But once you start sodomizing spokesmodels,
it's hard to stop."

So here we go again!

Same hog sodomizes Ashton Kutcher!
Same hog sodomizes George W. Bush!
Same hog sodomizes Michael Jordan!
Same hog sodomizes the corpse of Ronald Reagan!

Monthly Unemployment Non-Story


The table and graph above lay out the most basic description of
US employment and unemployment for the last ten years.

What percentage of able-bodied Americans over the age of 16 have a job?

In October 2009 that stat hit a plateau at 58.5%, and it never bounced
up or down more than three tenths of one percent from then to now.

58.5% in October 2009
58.5% in November 2009
58.2% in December 2009
58.5% in January 2010
58.5% in February 2010
58.5% in March 2010
58.5% in March 2011
58.5% in March 2012

58.4% in April 2012
58.6% in May 2012

And that's the non-story of US employment and unemployment
month after month after month.



Raise the western seaboard!
Compress the ocean!

All the turtles are coming home!

Are they coming home from a faraway nebula
or a bar in Malibu?

Were they waylaid by kisses?
Will the angels confess?

They created our world,
then they wove her a dark blue dress.
