Here It Is

What we need to preserve for future historians. Not a major event, but what really symbolizes much of the past five years. Right here. There will be history classes in colleges fifty years from now centered on this event and how we saw it through our various filters of reality.

"My family and I are deeply sorry for all that Vice President Cheney and his family have had to go through this week." Okay, I can see not being pissed, saying it was all an accident. "Gosh, ol' Dick was just a lil' too eager to get his bird," you know, something like that. But saying, ""My family and I are deeply sorry for all that Vice President Cheney and his family have had to go through this week" -- What the fuck? Did they have this guy on a potent mix of morphine and other drugs for the past week as they gently drilled him on how awful this has been for the Vice President?


A Very Special SwaG! Valentine

I love you! I love you! I love you, anyhooow... I ... Don't!... Care... If... You... Don't... Want... Me! I'm YOUR'S! Right now!


Ouch! Hey -- You Peppered Me!

Here's a spot with continuous round-up of the Deadeye Dick mystery. 200 pellets embedded in the skin, some are not being removed by the doctors. Discussion with Rove about 90 minutes after the incident. Deputy turned away by Secret Service that night -- see, there were arrangements for police interview the next morning, not that night.

Are You Ready To Step Behind The Looking Glass?

Dick Cheney, then [assistant] White House Chief of Staff to President Ford...was the reason my family had travelled to Wyoming where I endured yet another form of brutality - his version of "A Most Dangerous Game," or human hunting.... Dick Cheney had an apparent addiction to the "thrill of the sport." He appeared obsessed with playing A Most Dangerous Game as a means of traumatizing mind control victims, as well as to satisfy his own perverse sexual kinks.

Found here, from the 1995 book Trance-Formation of America, the autobiography of a victim of government mind control.

Fuck the Safe Zone! The bourbon tells me to spin around and get that mughafugan BIRD behind me!


Your safe zone-of-fire is that area or direction in which you can safely fire a shot. It is "down range" at a shooting facility. In the field it is that mental image you draw in your mind with every step you take. BE SURE YOU KNOW WHERE YOUR COMPANIONS ARE AT ALL TIMES. Never swing your gun or bow out of your safe zone-of-fire. Know the safe carries when there are persons to your sides, in front of, or behind you. IF IN DOUBT, NEVER TAKE A SHOT. When hunting, wear daylight fluorescent orange so you can be seen from a distance or in heavy cover.

Found here. Also, the injured party who apparently was sneaking around behind Cheney was wearing hunter's orange.

I Say He Was Drunk

More analysis of the Deadeye Dick incident.

Why did it take almost a day for the story to get out? Why was it the land-owner who talked? Was the administration going to keep it secret?

Was Cheney drunk? That's my theory.


I realize that, after a long break in the ranting, when I read about Bush, I'm Buddy Rich when I fly off the handle.

Cheney Shoots Man

By now you've heard the news about Dead-Eye Dick. What's interesting is that the story is so squirrelly that it can be analyzed like the Kennedy Assassination. Not that there is something more than just a clumsy hunting accident, but there's a mystery here...
Things can get chaotic and excited when a bunch of birds (I'll just try, as a blanket matter, not to use the jargon) come into range or rise up. But if you don't shoot outside that safe fire zone, then everyone should be safe.

Now, if you read the description provided by Katharine Armstrong, the Bush-Cheney fundraiser on whose 'ranch' this happened, what she seems to describe is this: The birds 'flush'. Cheney picks out a bird and starts following it. In the process he basically wheels around doing a 180. So he's spun around and is now firing backwards relative to the direction he had been facing. And Whittington was just, for whatever reason, where Cheney didn't expect him to be.

There's a weirdness here because Cheney obviously committed the grave sin of safe hunting -- he pulled the trigger while pointing the gun towards a human. But this Armstrong swears it was the victim's fault for not alerting Cheney that he was behind him. Then Mary Matalin (Cheney staff member and civil rights expert) chimes in, "The vice president was concerned. He felt badly, obviously. On the other hand, he was not careless or incautious or violate any of the [rules]. He didn't do anything he wasn't supposed to do."

Our Vice President Richard Cheney is incapable of error. Carry on.


WIDR Week Still On

At least for another day. Thanks to all who came out to the big Dance Party. You had your freak on, even when I descended into "Ballroom Blitz" and "Iron Man." Or maybe because.

You can still give, and become a supporter of the Rebel Radio Forces.

But Imagine If The Shit He Was Doing Worked

We all would love our Glorious Leader.

New York Times says:

We can't think of a president who has gone to the American people more often than George W. Bush has to ask them to forget about things like democracy, judicial process and the balance of powers — and just trust him. We also can't think of a president who has deserved that trust less.

This has been a central flaw of Mr. Bush's presidency for a long time. But last week produced a flood of evidence that vividly drove home the point.

And they list out the stuff... domestic spying, prison camps, a war we didn't need. But that's that liberal NYT. What about the conservatives who all love him? Bob Barr, conservative, points out to a conservative audience that conservatives believe in leaders who obey the rule of law.

"Do we truly remain a society that believes that . . . every president must abide by the law of this country?" he posed. "I, as a conservative, say yes. I hope you as conservatives say yes."

But nobody said anything in the deathly quiet audience. Barr merited only polite applause when he finished, and one man, Richard Sorcinelli, booed him loudly. "I can't believe I'm in a conservative hall listening to him say [Bush] is off course trying to defend the United States," Sorcinelli fumed.

Conservatives are now authoritarian, or more specific, Bushitarian.

Is This The Year?

The year when everyone realizes that Bush is an incompetent, dishonest, asshole?

I hope so. Here's the latest on Katrina and the assholes who did nothing to help a drowning city in chaos. Report from Republican-led House slams ... the Republican administration!

The 600-plus-page report lays primary fault with the passive reaction and misjudgments of top Bush aides, singling out Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff, the Homeland Security Operations Center and the White House Homeland Security Council, according to a 60-page summary of the document obtained by The Washington Post. Regarding Bush, the report found that "earlier presidential involvement could have speeded the response" because he alone could have cut through all bureaucratic resistance.

You all remember what Bush was doing at the time. Hanging out with country stars and playing his new guitar. If he were only able to go to NOLA and let the people know that "nobody knew the levees would break."

What a rotten asshole.


Feel the Love

I thank the listeners who pledged $589.10 during SwaG! Wednesday, and that doesn't include the guy who emailed that he bought me for $100 before the show. As of yesterday, WIDR made $6,021. Keep it coming. Support free, independent, noncommercial radio. Don't forget, WIDR Dance Party, tonight, Kraftbrau. I, Bat Guano, should be spinnin' around midnight.



"I believe the common denominator of the universe is not harmony, but chaos, hostility and murder."

Werner Herzog knows what's what. That's why when he's shot during an interview, he just shrugs it off.

Also, if you follow the link, you will learn that he recently pulled Joaquin Phoenix out of a car wreck.

You know what this means. Herzog is Superman.


You've Got Nothing to Hide, Right?

And you have utmost confidence that a huge system that scans for patterns and keywords, filters interesting results to human eyes and ears, won't become a big screw-up or be abused? And you are confident that this system doesn't need judicial or legislative oversight? And that it's needed because it's catching terrorists who want to kill us?

Well, it hasn't caught any terrorists. And it turns up less than 10 suspected individuals a year that have enough real "probable cause" wafting off of them that the government can get real warrants for legitimate old-fashioined wire taps -- only 10? Maybe Bush should lean on these NSA people, nab more for intensive spying. How embarrassing can it be to have this huge system turning up nothing -- like the effort to find proof of WMDs in Iraq, maybe they should start looking for the results they want, in spite of the facts they're finding...

Anyway, here's the latest summary. Including the news that Bush and Gonzales are liars.


An Early Valentine

What may be the most heart-felt love song of all times.
