Meet the New Boss, Same as the Old Boss
Mike Wasdin 2004-11-09 17:00
I guess the best way to sum things up is with the classic line from the Who's 'Won't Get Fooled Again,' only we were fooled again! Not really fooled, more like coerced, scared and lied to. Just as I thought, the Boogeyman came out just before the S-election and the sheople acted as I knew they would. I was actually surprised that Saddam did not make a guest appearance thanking Bush for freeing...
The People Have Spoken
Mike Wasdin 2004-11-08 17:00
The real wonder should not be how a fascist like Bush beat out a socialist like Kerry, but instead the mindset of the people. The people have spoken! Or at least 51% of 55% percent have, anyway. Democracy has proven once again that it is nothing more than nine wolves and a sheep voting on what's for dinner. I keep hearing people say that 'the people have spoken.' But have they really? It has...
And the Winner Is....
Mike Wasdin 2004-10-31 17:00
Who cares? I know the loser is going to be us! Well here we are, it's selection eve night, and the sheep have either made their pilgrimage or will shortly. As they stand in line waiting their turn to stumble into the voting booth and select their next master, I can't help but think how lucky I am to be one of the ones who will have the right to complain no matter what the outcome. In the...
Oh That; Don"t Even Worry About That!
Mike Wasdin 2004-10-28 16:00
One of my favorite movies is Pulp Fiction, and one of my favorite scenes from the movie is the one at Jimmy's house, just after Marvin's head is blown off. Jules and Vincent are at Jimmy's house, and Jules is trying to smooth Jimmy over for bringing a dead body to his house. Jimmy is not buying the bullshit and gets mad about the dead guy in his garage. Just then Jules looks at Jimmy and he says...
Four More Years
Mike Wasdin 2004-10-26 16:00
Four more years! That's what Bush says he needs to take care of all of our problems, just four more years. Of course the sheep have not thought to question what about the first four years? This would require a thought process, which the sheep do not have. He has 'big plans' for this country in the next four years, and he needs our help to achieve them. If only we would give him four more years,...
Fear and Loathing in America
Mike Wasdin 2004-10-25 16:00
Are you scared shitless yet? Well you should be, or at least that's what both Republicrats want you to be. While watching and reading the news the last few weeks, I have noticed that one thing is incessantly being hurled at us, TERROR! I think the lyrics to Green Day's 'American Idiot' sums it up best: 'Welcome to a new kind of tension, all across the alienation, everything isn't meant to be...
Slaves of the State
Mike Wasdin 2004-10-21 16:00
Webster defines property as '1a: A quality or trait belonging and especially peculiar to an individual or thing. 2a: Something owned or possessed. 2b: The exclusive right to possess, enjoy, and dispose of a thing. 2c: Something to which a person or business has a legal title.' Most people do not realize it, but they are nothing more than the property of the State. A property owner has the...
Fuck You, I Won't Do What You Tell Me!
Mike Wasdin 2004-10-21 00:00
Damn, I love that song! Killing In The Name Of, by Rage Against The Machine. Every time I hear it, my blood starts pumping, my foot starts stomping and I get a 10-inch hard on, (okay, so maybe I'm extrapolating with the hard on a bit) and I am ready for a revolution! It's time for the gloves to come off, no more Mr. Nice Guy! I am tired of picking nice little ways of expressing my feelings...
My Name Is Spartacus
Mike Wasdin 2004-10-19 16:00
It will not be the governing class alone that will react in horror to the prospect of an American slave insurrection; the sheep would be equally frightened at the thought of having to think for themselves. Whatever the objections of men dispossessed by the State, they would find it unthinkable to involve themselves with rebellious slaves. Spartacus was said to be an enigma, a freeborn...
Dumb and Dumber
Mike Wasdin 2004-10-18 16:00
Labels can indeed be interesting and funny things. Since I have become politically vocal over the last few years, I have been called many things. Conservatives consider me to be a Liberal, and Liberals a Conservative. Republicrats, not being able to conceive of anything outside their sheepish little world of Republican/Democrat mantras, cannot imagine that there may be other more rational and...
The God Meme
Mike Wasdin 2004-10-07 16:00
The enemy has nukes, and oh yes they are quite insane! No, not the Muslim terrorist wack job fundamentalists, I am describing the Christian terrorist wack job fundamentalists in The White House. The Zionists and the Muslim terrorists are equally guilty, but unequally armed. The great Bush Armageddon will be a nuclear war, because America has them, Israel has them, and soon the Muslims will have...
Bread and Circuses
Mike Wasdin 2004-10-05 16:00
Bread and circuses became the method that the ruling class of ancient Rome used to maintain their power and control of the people. This method kept their sheep fat and happy, even as they fleeced them and sent them off to plunder the free world. The circuses have changed from the gladiator contests live in the coliseum, to the...
Men of Metal
Mike Wasdin 2004-09-28 16:00
There is an old Japanese sword maker's saying, 'The best steel is made in the hottest fire.' The steel forged by these craftsmen is the finest in the world, for not only did they use the hottest fire, they also folded the steel over itself, and hammered it numerous times, quenching it in oil each time to ensure its high carbon content, and stress to create a superior weapon. Creating character...
Blind Patriotism
Mike Wasdin 2004-09-28 00:00
Patriotism is defined as, 'a feeling of love and devotion to one's own homeland.' (Patria: The land of one's fathers.) It seems that this definition has fallen by the wayside and been replaced by blind devotion to one's leaders ("America, right or wrong," "America, love it or leave it" or "You are either with us or against us.') Might may bring success in war, but it does not make the stronger...
God Is Laughing at You
Mike Wasdin 2004-09-26 16:00
When writing my last article 'The Gods Must Be Crazy,' I knew I would come under attack for daring to assault the sacred cow of religion, but I never could have imagined what proof people would present as evidence to my being wrong. Most of the responses were quite affable, which I found very surprising. The only explanation to this that I could conceive is, Anarchist-Theists are a hell of a lot...
The Gods Must Be Crazy
Mike Wasdin 2004-09-20 16:00
Okay, I should go ahead and get this out of the way right now, I am an atheist, and damn proud of it! In fact, I wear that like a badge of honor. I really don't care what someone else might think; nor do I care what someone else wants to believe in, Superman, Big Foot, Little Green Men, or Gods for that matter. I just don't want government telling me that I must believe in fairy tales as well....
Friends Don't Let Friends Vote!
Mike Wasdin 2004-09-19 16:00
We have all heard the mantra before: "If you don't vote, you can't complain." Well I disagree, I think it's just the opposite: "If you vote, you can't complain." By voting, you are legitimizing the system. You are giving your stamp of approval that you will accept the outcome because you agreed to it. If it does not turn out like you had hoped, you have no right to complain,...
I See Brain Dead People
Mike Wasdin 2004-09-15 16:00
I remember years ago, going to the movie theater and watching a movie entitled 'The Sixth Sense.' In the movie there was a young boy who was able to see dead people. At the time I remember thinking how eerie that would be, but did not give it much more thought. In the movie, the dead were able to make contact with the boy and it was very frightening for him. Try as he may, he could not escape the...
Confessions of a Sadomasochist
Mike Wasdin 2004-09-13 16:00
I must confess something: I am a bit of a sadomasochist. No, nothing of the twisted sexual nature, but twisted just the same. I am ashamed to admit it, but I spend a large portion of my free time in political chat rooms. My friends think I need therapy, and to be honest, I can't say that I disagree. I belong to several dozen of these groups, all of them varying in different political brainwashed...
Words Scribbled on Parchment
Mike Wasdin 2004-09-09 16:00
While reading some of the e-mail responses from my last article Enemy of the State, one thing became abundantly apparent. Some people still don't get it! Although the majority of responses were positive, there were still some who believed that mere words scribbled on parchment would somehow save them. Somehow the problem is we just can't get the Government Leviathan to adhere to the Constitution...
Enemy of the State
Mike Wasdin 2004-09-06 16:00
Why would a middle class white boy grow up to be an enemy of the State? That's a question I have asked myself for years. It was not always the case. I grew up like most people, waving the flag and brainlessly regurgitating the mantra that is the Pledge of Allegiance. There was a time when I believed the United States had the world's envy and presented the standard other countries desperately...

Fuck the Government
Mike Wasdin 2004-11-19 01:00
Throughout history there have been many great quotes by many great people, but one of my favorites has to be the one by Abbie Hoffman. When asked why he used the F-word so much, his response was, 'If I could not say fuck, how would I be able to say fuck the government?' No truer words were ever spoken! There was a time in this country when people had a great distrust in government; dissent was...
It's That Time of Year Again
Mike Wasdin 2010-07-04 03:00
By Mike Wasdin.   Exclusive to STR   The Faux of July is once again making its annual pilgrimage into the hearts and brain dead minds of all good patriotic Amerikans. As it approaches my email box has become flooded with the usual brain dead messages sent by “sheeple” from Sea to Shining Sea. One that grabbed my attention recently was a little gem about the Pledge of...
