They once bore the shackles damning them to relatively level footing with normal citizens, but no more.

Navigating the web of lies and hoaxes seeded against Venezuela’s Government (tags)
VHeadline en Español News Editor Jesus Nery Barrios writes: Continuing our cyber crusade, navigating the web of lies and hoaxes seeded against Venezuela’s Bolivarian Government, President Hugo Chavez and its brave people in the mainstream media, and to show readers the other side of the coin, allowing them to achieve some balance in the information they receive and to arrive at their own conclusions, we find yet another oft-reiterated topic concerning the land of Simon Bolivar, Luis Aparicio and Jacinto Convit (the Venezuelan physician who discovered a vaccine for leprosy).

Random Thoughts (tags)
Help! The "special interests" are attacking me! (tags)
Will all you please help me? I'm being attacked by all these "special interests" who think the state should pay for their services. The nerve of them. Do these "special interests" really think that California is their personal piggy bank? My billionaire friends don't want to pay higher taxes to pay for these "special interests"! They worked hard to earn their billions of dollars. They deserve tax relief to buy more yachts, mansions, and fancy cars. All these "special interests" will do is squander all of their money. Help me take back Sacramento from these "special interests" so the billionaires who put me where I am today won't have to pay more taxes so the state can spend, spend, spend!

Don't worry, be happy (tags)
There are a multitude of mixed messages being dispersed to the public by U.S. ministers of propaganda. The American people were encouraged, immediately after 9/11, to hang flags to show their patriotic love for their country, and to honor those who tragically lost their lives. Grieve, go home and grieve ... but not for too long. You must show the terrorists that they didn't get to us, so go out and live your lives the way you did before. Spend money!
Give Lefty Money. See Lefty Whine. (tags)
You can't even give some people money without them complaining. Take these liberals for instance. Do you suppose they're crying because they're really upset, or is this just politics talking for them? I mean it's their money, right? Perhaps they should give the checks to charity? Perhaps they could endorse over their "ill gotten gains" to me? I'd be okay with that!

On the subject of so-called "Trust Fund Kids" (tags)
I've noticed that some of the right-wingers and Bush lovers who post on IMC -- most notably those with nothing of substance to say -- are fond of using the term "Trust Fund Kids" as a pejorative to somehow diminish the contributions of those whose financial circumstances are anywhere above the poverty level. Let's dispel some of the "popular" misconceptions.
