You Know I Am Right

From the comments in another thread:

For all the celebration of their culture, the Chinese apparently used a variety of foreign architects to spiff up for the Olympics, including Albert Speer, Jr. Haven’t noticed much press play for this.

Quite simply, there is no time allocated for the Chinese to be called Nazis right now. The Iranians were the Nazis for the previous six months, now the Russians are scheduled to be the Nazis until the elections in November. We will take a break from international Nazis during the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays and reserve the term for relatives, in-laws, people who re-gift, and secular humanists and the ACLU and anyone else Bill O’Reilly decides is an enemy of Christmas.

Maybe we can work the Chinese into the schedule sometimes in January. I will get with the Weekly Standard and find out.

    They were our bestest friends, up until they upstaged every Olympics we’ve ever undertaken. Now they’re back to the Evil Empire Mk. II.

    Wonder what it’ll take for the Iranians to regain their most-favored Nazi status. With old school necon attention diverted to the new shiny thing, it’ll take some fairly radical bullshit being generated by new schoolers to re-focus their attention.

    I for one am unafraid of any new Nazi-type menace. Should one arise, this proud nation will respond in the way that reflects its might: we will inundate them with bad mortgages and overpriced cups of coffee.

    OT: More good news. Pasadena-based Wescom Federal Credit Union is closing 20% of its branch offices due to continuing losses caused by borrowers’ inability to repay their loans. Wescom does not do mortgages. Personally, I think that repealing the ban on offshore drilling will fix this right up.

    Watch this, my friends. The nazifascists are outside the borders of the USA. Yuppers, my friends, there not here in the good ol’ USA. We good ‘Merkins bring democracy and liberty, even freedom, my friends, to all the rest of the nations on this planet. We, my friends, are the land of “the free and the home of the brave”.
    So, my friends, though some might try to tell you that the real fascists live in a magical place called DC, just don’t believe them. The USA is not a police state. We do not spy on citzens. It’s the “terrorists” over there that are taking or threatening to take your freedoms, my friends.
    That’s who you should fear. So, vote for me, my friends.

    I’m John McCain and I approved this message.

    Earlier this week I turned on Glenn Beck’s radio program to see what the latest lie is about Obama.

    I was pleasantly surprised to hear him rant angrily for about 5 minutes about all of the ways that OBAMA IS JUST LIKE HITLER. Obama is popular– just like Hitler. Germans like Obama– just like Hitler. Obama is charasmatic–just like Hitler. Obama makes people happy and excited when he talks– just like Hitler. Obama is a socialist– just like Hitler. It was so completely absurd that I couldn’t stop laughing. It’s quite possibly the most outrageous claim to date. I only hope they all start parroting it.

    You know the rightwingnuts are scared out of their minds when they’re claiming that the Dem nominee is JUST LIKE HITLER. I only wish Beck would talk about this on his tv program so that he can fully expose himself to be the completely ridiculous clown that he truly he is.

    See, Georgia has a place named Albany. So does NY. Heck, it’s the fuckin’ state capitol.
    So, by saying we are all “georgians”, it’s code to the folks that live in Albany, and if you live anywhere near that place, watch out for the Russkies to come down the Thruway and take over. Them thar Russofascists will be comin’ to getcha, dontcha know?

    And regarding those thar Oly-im-pic games over that in China, here are some pics from the scrapbook section labeled “memories”..or maybe “not”.

    I was searching for more “memories” and found this quote from Scott McClellan:

    “The media won’t let go of these ridiculous cocaine rumors,” McClellan heard Bush say in 1999. “You know, the truth is I honestly don’t remember whether I tried it or not. We had some pretty wild parties back in the day, and I just don’t remember.”

    I’ve always wondered why W didn’t just outright deny doing cocaine, as he seems to have no trouble lying in general. This is the first account I’ve read that makes some sense to me.

Wescom does not do mortgages. Personally, I think that repealing the ban on offshore drilling will fix this right up.

    This issues behind this merits its own topic. Wescom was founded by a group of Pacific Telephone workers. As late as 2002, it was flush with deposits: “Its core checking, savings and money-market deposits have increased 27.2 percent in the first six months of 2003,” according to a cached news story on the web.

    Wescom’s decline represents an issue that both the Democrats and Republicans dance around and which the Democrats should own: workers’ wages, net savings and capital assets are all in decline, even as the Republicans continue to make empty promises that their policies will bring prosperity to anyone other than their closest coporate cronies :

    Pasadena-based Wescom Credit Union, which saw four straight quarters of net losses, is closing 11 of its 55 branches, according to a statement from the company released Friday.

    It lost $28 million the last three months of 2007. It then lost $7.8 million the first quarter of this year. During April through June, Wescom lost only $3 million, according to the National Credit Union Administration.

    The McCain/Bush chest-thumping over evil Russia and the China-Nazi spectacle nonsense popping up in the media is little more than “bread and circus” distractions to lull conservatives into gentle complacency.

    Here are the facts. The alarms have been sounded. Godwin is dead, and John is wrong. The world can easily accommodate more Nazis. Billions and billions of Nazis, from here to eternity. Every diplomatic unpleasantness that doesn’t go the way we want it to is Munich 1938, and the Chinese are Nazis for making the prettier girl lip-synch the song the other girl with the better voice sang.

    Also, George Bush is a lush and the American press is filled with Nazis for not saying so.

    Real wages have been declining for years but there’s nothing so bad that a Republican can’t make it worse. McCain’s plan to tax health insurance is a perfect example. McCain’s “plan” would tax employer provided health insurance and then offer a tax deduction of $5000 per family or $2500 for an individual to pay for health insurance. That McCain’s bright idea would substantially raise the taxable income of everyone lucky enough to have employer provided health care breezes right on by the old dodderer. Ditto, that it’s a regressive tax on the middle class. Nor does it occur to the wizened Senator, who has had his health care provided by the government since the day he was born, that a family cannot purchase health care for $5000 per annum – an individual might get it for that but he or she would also have have to eat a substantial deductible.

    But McCain is a War Hero™ and he won’t raise your taxes so this one will be subject to the usual lack of scrutiny by the MSM. Have some barbecue.

    Note that Hitler’s favorite architect was Albert Speer, Sr. His son is also an architect, and is involved in the Beijing games. As far as I can tell, Speer, Junior, is not politically controversial.

    So the above quote is factual, not snark.

    Hmmm. Well, it’s been fun, but upon reflection I feel some clarification may be indicated. My point, assuming I had one, was:
    Classical Chinese architecture is magnificent.
    Though A. Speer, Jr. is presumably not a Nazi, a nation attempting to live down a totalitarian rep might have made a better PR choice.
    Many people, including the press and not excluding me, are easily distracted by shiny things.
