RANT on my feelings about USA being destroyed by Republican Neo-Con Fascists

I'm reposting this here just so my RANT can be preserved on my BLOG.  I think this RANT had some gems in it -- capable of getting me lynched my really crazy Christians who believe in 'punishing the heretic' (the same idiots that don't understand that Jesus was a heretic in his lifetime!!!   Morons!).  And these people are the ones that so fear Islam -- they don't see their own extreme religiosity (which conveniently ignores the 10 Commandments) as ignorant, regressive, primitive.  Oh well.
Hey!  I haven't started my 'official' rant yet!  (That was all pre-RANT rant.)

My cousin posted the following on Facebook (very innocently):
"Let's all just tell eachother how we really feel. That would be fun."

So I ranted (@4am):
I feel that the USA is being destroyed by Republican Neo-Con Fascists, many of whom are White Aryan neo-Nazis. Their main goal is to take the wealth from public hands & put it in the hands of a few white families: many of whom believe they are God's chosen, the 'Visible Elect', and that when Armageddon comes, the fact that they gather so much stuff (ie stealing the wealth from the masses) earns them a really nice cloud in Heaven. (Or perhaps they know they'll burn in Hell, which I think most of them fear b/c of the bad things they do to steal all the stuff.)

THIS is quite disturbing: that you can't argue rationally with people who believe in Armageddon & Judgement Day about Global Warming (they don't care b/c Armageddon), Women's Rights (b/c they believe Jesus said all sperm is holy?), Gay Rights (b/c they think Soddom & Gomorah is about gays -- but it had far more to do w/not treating visitors well & rape & so on), or stopping war against non-Christians (again Armageddon).

The main problem, IMO, is that people allow the Roman Catholic Church (who blocked it's members from reading the Bible, put people to death for 'Heresy' & wouldn't translate the Bible from Latin until the Protestants translated it independently) to misinterpret a very influential book about a famous Jew & continue a cult which doesn't understand anything about Judaism, or even that the specific Jew they think was God actually practiced JUDAISM, not Christianity.

Last point -- Christians are constantly preaching about 'the Anti-Christ', someone/something that completely misinterprets Jesus' message & does all kinds of harm. Hey! Look! It's right there in front of us, namely Pat Buchanan, Newt Gingrich, Bush Jr, etc etc.

The 'Double Speak' (from '1984' by Orwell) has been perfected by this group. Bush said it best, 'We have to kill all the terrorists b/c they hate our freedom.' And then the USA invaded Iraq & killed ~ 150k innocent people (and destabilized 13million people), and is currently killing innocents (including many children) in Afghanistan using unmanned planes firing Hellfire Missiles into groups of civilians -- "to stop terrorism".

So is that enough about how I feel? Not sure it helps much.

Dear President Obama & fellow Dem's,

The President is very myopic thinking bipartisanship is realistic. He is ignoring many things, namely that the working class is under attack -- bc of bailing out fraudulent 'Private Sector Banks' (with public funds) while keeping a war and a tax break & allowing (public) States to be crushed under an artificially created debt burden (made by fraudulent banks).

This is completely backwards!

I support the President taking a fighting stance (as he did briefly during the beginning of his Presidency and certainly during the elections), and saying "NO, we will not do these despicable things" which the Republicans propose.

No one can argue that Republicans are seeking bipartisanship, so why should the Democrats lead with conciliation to a neo-fascist threat which seeks to bankrupt the USA's working classes?

This is class warfare. It would be wonderful if President Obama would say so. Minnesota is the first battle in a class war seeking to cripple the Democracy of the USA & opening us up to rule by decree.

President Obama, I urge you to *completely* give up your conciliatory approach and be clear that this is a battle. You are not leading the opposition regardless, so lead your supporters, take a strong position to protect LABOR RIGHTS and stop the special treatment for Corporations!!

Thanks - rekzkarz.com (Green Tea Party Democrat)

iPhone 4 - a very good device, but not perfect

Copy of a comment I posted in re:
Today In IOS blog

I had iPhone 3 & now iPhone 4. I feel it's an upgrade, particularly in *speed* (main flaw of iPhone 3), but I wouldn't harsh the commentary (news article) so extremely.
My first corp smartphone was a b/w blackberry w/great email. Battery lasted 7 days w/heavy use. My iPhone battery may last 1 day w/o recharging. My gf's iPhone 3 (I gave her mine) may last 2 bc she's a light user.
iPhone is my fav smartphone so far (had Treo, Blackberry, & Android 1.0). But it is not perfect by any means.
I chuckle w/people's hatred of AT&T & love of Verizon: all phone co's are bloated bureaucracies w/little reason not to overbill & under-service. (Another testimony to capitalism's myth of competition generating 'best of breed'.) my 3-4 yes w/Verizon included regular incorrect bills, a mischarge of $250 for texts, and a far higher rate than AT&T's monthly bill -- for a Treo w/far lower internet usability than my iPhone now.
So, while I tell folks that iPhone 4 is *the slickest computer* I've ever owned, it is not perfect.
Main flaws IMO include:
AppStore 'iron grip' over apps, locked down OS (so I can't disable or modify dictionary for flawed autocorrect -- why does 'me' get replaced w/'mr'?!?!), no simple option to have a small keyboard w/buttons instead of LCD KB (on Blackberry my touch-typing rate was fast. On iPhone, I can't type OK finally -- but not comparable speed.), 'sandboxing' of apps blocks a lot of basic info-sharing (music, files, etc) & requires redundancy or copying, and IMO a major flaw: app purchases w/o previews, very hard to get refunds, & general Appstore navigation *sucks*. Actually, if I'm going to point out flaws, let me rip iTunes a new one: iTunes acting as a 'gateway' for iPhone interaction reminds me of AOL being a gateway to Internet. As a Mac & Windows user, I was surprised when I was *required* to install a bloated iTunes on my PC to sync, that iTunes always has components running in the background, always attempts to re-do my file structures, and often will not let me sync the phone until I update iTunes (& recently required me to update QuickTime & overwrite my purchased QuickTime Pro). So I'd like Apple to open iPhone file structure and not require me to use iTunes for anything.
But to re-state: this is an amazing smartphone. W/a few essential apps (for me incl Dropbox, Evernote, Filer, TapForms, QuickOffice, AppShopper, Tune-In Radio, NetFlicks, CraigsPro+, etc) + awesome built-ins like email, safari, & calendar, it is the best I've used so far.
+ thanks to Google, my contacts stay sync'd wirelessly & my Calendar stays sync'd. Wireless sync (w/o the insult of a 'MobileMe' extra fee) seems essential. And I'm sure glad I got an iPhone *after* copy/paste was implemented & I'm glad Apple added multitasking as well (altho if u donthave iPhone 4 u r screwed there -- which is another frequent apple flaw IMO; screwing early buyers).
I am a fan -- but I'm not a brainwashed 'Apple-nationalist' like so many folks.
