belched without apology

Let me get this straight:  so, given that BLM and USFS have parallel interests differently parceled out bureaucratically/systemically, and given they have divergent land management strategies -- then, that divergence would cause a BLM person to "leak" USFS land management practice details in order to palliate some kind of bureaucratic jealousy? 

This theme of skulldiggers being jealous over excavation tool one-upsmanship is laughable.  Exactly where do spook interests diverge, when compared to the interests of individual citizens?

Chet, isn't this the angle BroTarzie, Whore of MENSA was trying to run a few months back?

Yes, definitely MENSA's finest hoooer.

diane! and I'm tough! said...

OMIGOD. You are SOOOOOOOO in love with Tarzie. And for good reason. Tarzie is heroically gay, and that gives him great insights which are more than a little indebted to Fred deBoer's wisdom. The twittersphere is where all smart people put their energies now, and you're just jealous that you don't have as many twitter followers as Tarzie.

Did you see Greenwald giving Maher a smackdown? That's what Tarzie would do to you if you ever both appeared before a camera in a debate-oriented discussion.

The internecine warfare surrounding domestic surveillance is real. Only a naive fool would discount its real-world effects. I agree with diane, you are jealous that we're fixing real problems over on twitter, while your reactionary outlook has you stuck in this 20th century medium.

What do you expect from a homophobic bigot misogynist reactionary teap artier Randite sociopath Bircher? Wisdom? He wouldn't even know which kind of shoes to wear at a Black Tie affair.

You can always identify a Marxist lefty by his refusenik status where Glenn Greenwald and Edward Snowden are concerned. Only a Baby Lenin would refuse to believe our generation's greatest whistleblowers. Technology will save us, and eyes-everywhere will let the free market take precedence in American commerce & business. Which will lead to a more luxurious life. Which will let us live longer, healthier lives in greater comfort. While we find a way to colonize the moon.

This is the sort of shit those Zossenites used to ...uh... satirize ...cough cough.... Real wonk-tank comedy hour stuff. The serious commenters know that bureaucratic bulldogs pissing in each other's turf is the essence of why we don't have a better America. The urinary aromas are distinct. Ask any dog.

Paul Behrer said...

I agree with Karl -- total bullshit BlogTrust wankery. Tribalist morons who think they have the key to the unobtainium gate which protects The Eternal Leftist Utopia from such bothersome people as anyone who doesn't worship Marx, Chomsky, Engels, and other luminaries of The Lefte Banke. Real insider beta. Nobody could ever make something from whole cloth and attribute it to "anonymous sources disclosing under condition of anonymity". Anonymous is a real person with serious insider advantage that you faux critics can't understand -- so you mock it!

You are not welcome at my blog.

Fred le Boor said...

Nor at my blog.

Catam Otsceaux said...

Had you read my blog per se and understood its importance to the discursive praxis, you would have been welcome at my blog.

It's true that I'm back at it, after taking 3 months off to read Oxy's entries and familiarize myself with his analysis and observations, but temper them to preserve my lingering Donkey Tattoo -- Cardiac Location and further buff and polish my notion of government officials being incompetent and stupid. They have to be incompetent and stupid to work from a different game plan than I would use. Only a repthuglican or DINO would disagree with me.

A bruise is a dangerous thing, and when a GP tells me his ideas surrounding an etiological framework he never uses, I worry. A hematoma is far more serious a condition than what you civilians and others not in the industry would mis-label stupidly and simply as a "bruise." Furthermore, public education is under attack and I think you should agree with me when I say that our public schools are excellent places whose only flaw is having been reframed and redirected by a Repthuglican agenda derived from Corporate. No teacher should speak out against his/her employer, that would be impolite and might ruffle the wrong bird's feathers. If you work in a bad bureaucracy, you shouldn't try to fix it. You should find a scapegoat other and blame him/her/it.

Jack Crow said...

That's the praxis. Well said.

Eeny Huelsh said...

I give you a lot to unpack with every essay I write. It's because I'm so brilliant and, like a poet, each of my words contains a multitude of insights. This is why I've long been a red dwarf in the Noble Blogger solar system.

My stature is so much higher now as compared to two years ago. Richard Seymour may even link to me on occasion!

Hyman Mittleman Lohmann said...

Harper Lee may have talked about killing a mockingbird, but what about a murder of crows?

Jack Crow said...

Lohmann, or whatever you're calling yourself this week to cause inflammation of my haemorrhoids: you are not welcome at my blog. No matter which name I blog under, you are not welcome there. This is my standard policy for people who don't use trigger warnings and who are obvious Bircher reactionary teap artier misogynist racist bigot homophobe Randite libertariann teatard sociopath rapists.

Ironic that the Crowbar doesn't even know what people call a grouping of corvids. But typical he'd fly off the handle and get redfaced angry, spittle-casting belligerent, and ironic again that it would be at the appearance (in his mental landscape) of some projected grouping of traits he pretends to have discerned through letters, spaces and punctuation marks while never meeting in-person the individual who typed out those letters, spaces and punctuation marks. After all, he's got 13 degrees and has been a Top Man in His Field in each of the 37 different Fields where he yoked up and pulled a tilling blade.

Harold Caidagh said...

It's like Hugo Schwyzer, Leo Buscaglia and David Graeber rolled into a single Internet Construct. Celebrate him now.

Don't forget Chomsky Lite. Those cut-and-paste-from-academic-ish-source "insights" prove he's got a powerful eidetic memory.
