American Samizdat

Tuesday, February 19, 2008. *

Let's be honest. Those anonymous vids are both scary and inspired. They also seem to spark real action. I guess it would be asking too much for the Green Party to pull something off like that. I also think they're comics fans. Aren't there two comics allusions...the "be wary" phrase comes from "V for Vendetta" and the cut down one and ten will replace it seems to be taken from the mantra of Hydra: "Cut off one arm and two will replace it." Hydra was the main nemesis of Shield, at least when Steranko drew it. The Internets is the modern counterculture. Don't let anybody tell you different. (One question for anonymous, who is legion: why stop at scientology? Why not Mormonism or the pope or thoroughly evil republicans? Just a thought....)

Speaking of the Green Party, what the fuck is wrong with the Green Party? They're planning on running a candidate against Mike Doyle, arguably the most progressive congressman in the state (look at his record.). If they do really well they won't win but they could tip the race to the hideous republican, which is the reality of the winner take all system. Are they planning on ever contesting a mayor's race again? If they had attacked the last Pittsburgh's mayor's race with funding and, you know, a candidate, I just think they would have gotten a lot of support. I don't understand their strategy. Why can't they raise money from small donors? What is their strategy? Annoying and quixotic presidential runs only?. Related: Did you know that there are other third parties out there? I didn't. Until yesterday. Let's all read about the Working Families Party and The United States Labor Party, not to be confused with wacko Lyndon Larouche's Labor Party, probably a psyop to discredit a decent labor party.

(And thanks to Klintron for this one:)
