And better than in the corporate accounting world, where a "write-off" actualy costs a company some money, writing off of spent, injured military personnel does not cost Bushliburton's army anything. That Fat Cats get fatter and the majority of us get the shaft in any number of ways, after all, we are only here to consume goods and pay taxes, so that the Fat Cats can increase profits and avoid taxes. Giving the shaft to our men and women that volunteered their lives in service to the rest of, to people who are true patriots, is despicable, criminal, immoral and in-human.

Comment on The Shafting Of Our Career-Soldiers by Dusty http://indefatigable-indolence.org/blog1/2007/03/23/the-shafting-of-our-career-soldiers/#comment-10535 Mon, 05 Nov 2007 20:29:30 +0000 http://indefatigable-indolence.org/blog1/2007/03/23/the-shafting-of-our-career-soldiers/#comment-10535 This story is maddening on every level. That hundreds of Federal Contractors can rape the American Taxpayer but our own military soldiers get nothing chaps my ass like you wouldn't believe. The newest figures for the 'cost' of the war are 10 times that of original estimates..well no kidding..look who is running the show? The 'costs' of course don't include the billions that will be needed to fix the injured..whether they are mentally or physically wounded. This story is maddening on every level.

And BushCo is very happy about that fact. The fuckwits might be morons..but they seem to know what will pass muster with the majority of American's. Sick sumbitches.

Comment on Ellen DeGeneres: Where Are You When Puerto Rican Mutts Need You? by Big Fella http://indefatigable-indolence.org/blog1/2007/10/18/ellen-degeneres-where-are-you-when-puerto-rican-mutts-need-you/#comment-10507 Sun, 04 Nov 2007 22:44:31 +0000 http://indefatigable-indolence.org/blog1/2007/10/18/ellen-degeneres-where-are-you-when-puerto-rican-mutts-need-you/#comment-10507 "The cavalier and negligent treatment of those who depend on us, be they animals, the poor, homeless, dispossessed, or handicapped." Out of sight, out of mind. We live in a society that has indiscriminately accepted the values of commerce, it is virtually programmed in to our psyches at home, in school, in some of our religious teachings, in business and the media. We are taught to consume, to strive for the acquisition of "stuff". Success in life is equated with acquisition and accumulation of financial wealth. The idea that as humans, as intelligent beings at the top of the food chain on this planet, we should show any concern or consideration of other beings, be they human or animal, or show concern or consideration of our natural physical environment, is squeezed from our consciousness by the relentless marketing messages delivered to us. Our leaders would rather have us all go shopping, feeding the economy, adding to the treasure that is being transferred from the many to the few. Don't worry about the downtrodden or disenfranchised, just keep consuming, keep contributing to the corporate bottom line. I have been steadily coming to the conclusion that the core values of this country are not democracy, but commerce, at all costs. “The cavalier and negligent treatment of those who depend on us, be they animals, the poor, homeless, dispossessed, or handicapped.”

Instead of abating, it is sticking with me, entering my dreams and affecting my mood. The actions of these people are indicative of a larger societal and global illness: The cavalier and negligent treatment of those who depend on us, be they animals, the poor, homeless, dispossessed, or handicapped.
