If you’ve been enjoying Bill in Exile then you should know that the only reason this blog exists is because of BIE Bill. I started it as a means of distracting him from his thoughts of suicide right after he was initially incarcerated in federal prison — and so any joy or mild entertainment garnered from what I’ve written, or any masturbatory assistance you may have realized from images posted here, has been largely because of BIE Bill.
So if you’ve got a few extra shekels lying around I’d urge you to hit his wish list and buy him some of the things he needs for his new home.
Plus, if you do, then I won’t have to.
Bill is a fucking idiot and didn’t know he was supposed to include his mailing address on his wish list when he set it up. I’m guessing he just figured you’d all be able to simply magic the stuff to him.
Soooooo, give him a little time to figure out how to add his mailing address and then you should be able to buy him shit.
“Watching this Iraq story unfold, all I can say is this: If this were not about my own country, my own kids and my own planet, I’d pop some popcorn, pull up a chair and pay good money just to see how this drama unfolds.”
Tom “The Mustache of Understanding” Friedman, writing in the NY Times on March 2nd, 2003 about the run-up to the invasion of Iraq.
Never forget what these vile, immoral monsters like Friedman once said as they enabled and fluffed the invasion from their safe sinecures — and that they’ve paid absolutely no price whatsoever for their depraved complicity in the crime against humanity that was the Iraq War.
Suck on that!
Here’s an incredible exchange that took place on Fox’s The Five between Fox News contributor Bob Beckel and Fox ambush specialist Jesse Watters.
Watters takes exception to the characterization of what happened to the Native American people of this continent as “extermination.”
Revel in the stoopid of Mr. Watters, if you will.
BECKEL: That’s right, this is way out of their area of expertise, but I will say this again, the English, the Europeans came over and threw the Indians off their land, exterminated them, threw them into reservations…
WATTERS: Exterminated!! (crosstalk) So let me get this straight Bob. America’s Founding Fathers, they came over here, colonized America and made it the great land that we are today. You’re saying they exterminated a whole race of people?
BECKEL: I see you must have been educated in Chicago…
WATTERS: You don’t really believe that, do you?
BECKEL: … because the Founding Fathers came here a hundred years after the Pilgrims came here.
WATTERS: The colonists, Bob and all the principles that came over on the Mayflower… freedom…
BECKEL: What do you think they did with the Indians? What do you think they did with them?
WATTERS: What do you think they did with who?
BECKEL: Those Indians that occupied that land.
WATTERS: They ate corn and they had Thanksgiving.
BECKEL: Oh, I see. They all did that. I guess they had turkey, a little stuffing…
WATTERS: And they dressed (inaudible) and they wrapped themselves around blankets. Yeah. And they sang kumbaya.
I think that for anyone with an education beyond the third grade it is pretty well established fact that the European immigrants who came over in the 16th, 17th, and 18th centuries made a pretty good job of intentionally exterminating as many Native Americans as possible.
Followed up of course by the United States Cavalry and their largely successful attempt at finishing the job off during the 19th century.
As the title of the post says — “It is known.”
The Massacre at Wounded Knee — December 29th, 1890.
The Oglala Lakota Sioux were attempting to turn in their rifles to the U.S. Army after willingly agreeing to disarm when the army opened fire on them, killing 300 men, women and children.
“Every time Dick Cheney laughs an angel gets stabbed in the dick.”
When I first saw this picture of a model modelling some rags I thought — “Holy shit! That’s Robert Strauman.” Who was a guy I dated for several months back in 1984 and before I discovered that he was a pathological liar and a thief among his other lovely character traits.
He was a foppish dandy, a fancy dresser and, if truth be told, a tad nellie — but he had a prodigious peen and was a surprisingly ferocious top.
I think a BIE reader who knew of him told me he may have died several years back — which probably means he tried to pull a grift on the wrong someone and they sent him swimming with the fishes.
I mention him in this post from 2008 here.
