Today! Rocky Anderson to Accept Justice Party Nomination for President of the United States

 

 

Whether you love him or haven’t missed him at all the last few years, nobody takes our withering press to task or keeps up on the pulse of the American dilemma like Rocky Anderson.

Rocky will accept the nomination of the Justice Party for U.S. President at the Olpin Theater on the U of  U campus today at 1:00pm. (Google Map)

Come see the Justice Party born here in your own back yard. Someday you’ll be able to say you were there.

If you can’t make it (on such short notice), please show some love with small donation.

Go Rocky!

    I hope Rocky was watching when Willard (“Mitt”) Romney spoke in New Hampshire last Tuesday night. Most of what he said was false or misleading, but he did offer a succinct indictment of the Obama administration from the right-wing perspective.

    What is needed is an equally short and to the point progressive indictment of the Obama administration. We know Rocky will be honest, but can he be brief?

    There’s no doubt about it; being on the press’s good side is very important, but Rocky has attacked them relentlessly. They deserved every bit of his wrath and maybe people will finally realize how much Rocky stood up for them. The time is riper then ever for that to happen because the OWS movement can not be ignored and continues to educate and invigorate our poorly informed society.

    I’m not doing well financially but I’m sending him twenty bucks right now because he makes me proud to be from Utah!

    Well, Rocky made page B-6 of the local paper with his presidential nomination acceptance speech. They reported an audience of 50, and they had free pizza.

    With all due respect, I could gather a crowd of 50 people with free pizza at lunchtime on the U of U campus.

    Rocky will be dismissed as a fringe candidate just like every other third party candidate always is. Some have proved to be “fringier” than other, but they are always on the outside and ignored nonetheless. And the dismissing will come not only from the media and the entrenched political parties, but from their minions in the electorate who will invariably cry about the potential for “splitting the vote.” I have as much chance of becoming president as Rocky.

    Rico 2012! Free pizza for all.

    how I wish joe bageant were still here.

    this is from June, 2010:

    If nothing else though, in the process of building our own gilded rat cage, we have proven that old saw about democracy eventually leading to mediocrity to be true. Especially if you keep dumbing down all the rats. After all, Dan Quayle, Donald Trump and George W. Bush hold advanced degrees from top universities in law, finance and business. The head rats, our “leaders,” (if it is even possible to lead anybody anywhere inside a cage), have proven to be as mediocre and clueless as anyone else. Which is sort of proof we are a democracy, if we want to look at it that way. While it is a myth that virtually anybody can grow up to be president, we have demonstrated that nitwits have more than a fighting chance. During my 40 years writing media ass-wipe for the public, I have interviewed many of “The best of my generation”, and believe me; most of them were not much.

    Naturally, they believe they are far superior by virtue of having made it to an elevated point in the gilded cage, closer to the feed, water and sex. Because they believe it, and the media echoes their belief, hovering and quoting them, discussing their every brain fart, we tend to believe it too. Nothing shakes our belief, not even staring directly into the face of a congenital liar and nitwit like Sarah Palin, or a careening set of brainless balls like Donald Trump or a retarded jackal like George W. Bush. Americans are unable to explain why such people “rise to the top” in our country. We just accept that they do, and assume that America’s process of natural selection — survival of the wealthiest — is at work. These people are rich; therefore, they should run the country. God said so. It’s a uniquely American principal of governance, which in itself, makes the case for our stupidity.

    The fact that Donald Quayle spelled potato wrong wasn’t a good reason to write him off because the plural of potato is potatoe/s for some reason. The press always seems to go after things that don’t matter as opposed to the real meat – for some reason. Could it be that spelling potato wrong won’t get you in real trouble.

    Supporting PNAC should be up for consideration.
