On The Origin of Leeks - 2

In the first episode of this series we talked about the ancient origin of leeks.

Oh those leeks, we discovered, are such good food for the people, but they are a poison for the elites, they are a risk to the warmonger, but above all they are for sure a perplexing problem to those vexed with the fog of nationalism that is founded on the exceptionalism of foolishness.

Those on the right, who feign "pragmatic constitutional understanding" when confronted with the Fourth Amendment, tend to say: "I have nothing to hide, so why should I care if 'they' search me or mine without a warrant ... I mean c'mon ... only criminals fear to be searched, besides it makes us safe and secure to give up the Fourth Amendment."

But those who officially preach that doctrine to the sleepy minions (e.g. T-Baggers) become hostile and vain when they are searched without a "warrant" by the CIA (Cosmic Intelligent Agents) of the people, and then have to "feast on leeks" when the rank lies and propaganda are exposed.

All of a sudden, they have no use for WiggyLeeks, the food of the common folk.

They become national security wonks all of a sudden when the tides turn upon them, failing to realize that a rogue government is not something that is safe and secure in the first place.

Why doesn't it occur to them that if those sworn not to do what they don't want out in the open didn't do those bad things they would have nothing to worry about?

Those who indoctrinated those lizard brain controlled minions tend to wilt like a leek in the desert without water when they have to endure violations of the principles of that "quaint writ" (Gonzales) because of the emergence of the truth about them.

Well, it is so close to thanksgiving time that we need to talk about that constitutional food of the people, the leeks of the people, from now until Pentagonia, Capitol of Bullshitistan is a democracy again.

After that we will celebrate the new era with some champagne and rejoicing while we sing "long live the leeks and long live the people".

As it turns out, a couple of media newspapers are leek eaters:
US embassy cables leak sparks global diplomatic crisis

• More than 250,000 dispatches reveal US foreign strategies
• Diplomats ordered to spy on allies as well as enemies
• Saudi king urged Washington to bomb Iran

"... cables date from 2007 or later — show American officials struggling with events whose outcomes are far from sure. To read through them is to become a global voyeur, immersed in the jawboning, inducements and penalties the United States wields in trying to have its way with a recalcitrant world."
(Guardian, see also NY Times). Now go out into the garden, pick some leeks, and "boil them cabbage down" (the Guardian has a download mechanism).

We must not DeLay the rights of the people, we must resist the robber barons and the criminally insane, so that we preserve at least a chance that we or our children can dwell in the next civilization.

The next post in this series is here, the previous post is here.


  1. Rep. King (R-Bullshitistan) came on Morning Joe to declare that he wants WikiLeaks to be declared a terrorist organization.

    But all the domestic spying on Americans without warrants is ok by him.

    Time to repeal the all the phony "patriot" acts that do what terrorists want to do: destroy the U.S. Constitution.

  2. I'm watching King on Today call for WikiLeaks to be classified as a Foreign Terrorist Organization as I speak. I expect we'll hear a lot more of this kind of stuff.

    Funny that a lowly PFC (E-3) in the Army could have downloaded all this stuff. The guy had almost certainly only been in for 2-3 years or less.

    Funny that for all the talk of how this risks American lives, no one is questioning stationing service members all over the world in the first place in support of questionable (read imperialistic) goals.

    Probably just coincidence that the "Christmas Tree Bomber" was caught just in time for the holiday season as a perfect illlustration of how at danger we all are and how thankful we should all be to have MOMCOM, DHS, and the Patriot Act out there "protecting our freedoms."

    I noticed that every football game this weekend made an ostentatious show of "respect for the troops." Nike's also come out with special "Pro Combat" uniforms that several teams wear, that go so far as to display a US flag a la US military uniforms. The marketing game here is obvious: Pro sports (especially football) = All-American values = American military troops = holidays = corporate values = holiday sales. Football's been making that pitch for years, but every year it gets a little more obvious.

  3. The very foundation of our House of Hegemony was legalized by the National Security Act which created the Secret Government Act in 1947. All this would be at risk, with the spill by WikiLeaks, if only...

    Really, folks, what we realize from this, other than a few scoundrels losing sleep, we finally get to state "the obvious" without being falsly acused of spreading conspiracy theories.

  4. Sounds like the full court press is about to start. Gonna be real interesting to see how all of this turns out. More Patriot Act type legislation for starters I'll bet, with or without some blatant end runs around current statutes to get at the perps.
