Rip Hunter

(2 pm. – promoted by ek hornbeck)

Gonzo journalism. If anyone personified it it was Hunter Thompson, he liked guns, rock and roll, drugs and honesty. Heh. 75 laying in the grave and laughing his ass off at all of us above the dirt.

You want to understand Gonzo go here and find something to post. I actually am impressed by that because any mention of the man is locked down at least it is from my computer.


Buy the ticket, take the ride.

I feel the same way about disco as I do about herpes.

In a closed society where everybody’s guilty, the only crime is getting caught. In a world of thieves, the only final sin is stupidity.

The Edge… there is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over.

When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.

You better take care of me Lord, if you don’t you’re gonna have me on your hands.

    Publishers are notoriously slothful about numbers, unless they’re attached to dollar signs – unlike journalists, quarterbacks, and felony criminal defendants who tend to be keenly aware of numbers at all times.

    The press is a gang of cruel faggots.  Journalism is not a profession or a trade.  It is a cheap catch-all for fuckoffs and misfits – a false doorway to the backside of life, a filthy piss-ridden little hole nailed off by the building inspector, but just deep enough for a wino to curl up from the sidewalk and masturbate like a chimp in a zoo-cage.

    I have spent half my life trying to get away from journalism, but I am still mired in it – a low trade and a habit worse than heroin, a strange seedy world full of misfits and drunkards and failures.  The business is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs.  There’s also a negative side.

    Objective journalism is one of the main reasons American politics has been allowed to be so corrupt for so long.  You can’t be objective about W.

    Politics is the art of controlling your environment.  That is one of the key things I learned in these years, and I learned it the hard way.  Anybody who thinks that ‘it doesn’t matter who’s President’ has never been Drafted and sent off to fight and die in a vicious, stupid War on the other side of the World – or been beaten and gassed by Police for trespassing on public property – or been hounded by the IRS for purely political reasons – or locked up in a New York City Jail with a broken nose and no phone access and twelve perverts wanting to stomp your ass in the shower.  That is when it matters who is President or Governor or Police Chief.  That is when you will wish you had voted.

    It is hard to ignore the prima facie dumbness that got us bogged down in this nasty war in the first place.  This is not going to be like Daddy’s War, old sport.  He actually won, and he still got run out of the White House nine months later…  The whole thing sucks.  It was wrong from the start, and it is getting wronger by the hour.

    We have become a Nazi monster in the eyes of the whole world, a nation of bullies and bastards who would rather kill than live peacefully.  We are not just Whores for power and oil, but killer whores with hate and fear in our hearts.  We are human scum, and that is how history will judge us. No redeeming social value.  Just whores.  Get out of our way, or we’ll kill you.  Who does vote for these dishonest shitheads?  Who among us can be happy and proud of having all this innocent blood on our hands?  Who are these swine?  These flag-sucking half-wits who get fleeced and fooled by stupid little rich kids like George Bush?  They are the same ones who wanted to have Muhammad Ali locked up for refusing to kill gooks.  They speak for all that is cruel and stupid and vicious in the American character.  They are the racists and hate mongers among us; they are the Ku Klux Klan.  I piss down the throats of these Nazis.  And I am too old to worry about whether they like it or not.  Fuck them.

    What the hell is going on here? How could this once-proud nation have changed so much, so drastically, in only a little more than six years.  In what seems like the blink of an eye, this George Bush has brought us from a prosperous nation at peace to a broke nation at war.

    We are turning into a nation of whimpering slaves to Fear – fear of war, fear of poverty, fear of random terrorism, fear of getting down-sized or fired because of the plunging economy, fear of getting evicted for bad debts, or suddenly getting locked up in a military detention camp on vague charges of being a Terrorist sympathizer.

    Not even the foulest atrocities of Adolf Hitler ever shocked me so badly as these Abu Ghraib photographs did.  I have been in this business a long time and I have seen many staggering things, but this one is over the line.  Now I am really ashamed to carry an American passport.

    I take no pleasure in being Right in my dark predictions about the fate of our military intervention in the heart of the Muslim world.  It is immensely depressing to me.  Nobody likes to be betting against the Home team.

    The Rumsfeld-Cheney axis has self-destructed right in front of our eyes, along with the once-proud Perle-Wolfowitz bund that is turning to wax.  They somehow managed to blow it all, like a gang of kids on a looting spree, between January and July, or even less.  It is genuinely incredible.  The U.S. Treasury is empty, we are losing that stupid, fraudulent chickencrap War in Iraq, and every country in the world except a handful of Corrupt Brits despises us.  We are losers, and that is the one unforgiveable sin in America.

    The utter collapse of this Profoundly criminal Bush conspiracy will come none too soon for people like me…  The massive plundering of the U.S. Treasury and all its resources has been almost on a scale that is criminally insane, and has literally destroyed the lives of millions of American people and American families.  Exactly.  You and me, sport – we are the ones who are going to suffer, and suffer massively.  This is going to be just like the Book of Revelation said it was going to be – the end of the world as we knew it.
