Joe Bageant: AMERICA: Y UR PEEPS B SO DUM?

Directly or indirectly, they understand that the real function of American social institutions is to justify, rationalize and hide the true purpose of cultural behavior from the lumpenproletariat, and to shape that behavior to the benefit of the institution's members.

FULL EDITORIAL HERE-JOE BANGEANT.COM

But when Americans too poor to buy health care nevertheless vote to retain the corporate auction process, that is cultural stupidity.

Cultural ignorance dictates that the best way to stop foreign terrorists flying into the country is by humiliating American citizens flying out of the country. Go ahead, grope me, X-ray my dick and for god sake don't let anyone bring a large bottle of shampoo on board.

The WikiLeaks affair is surely seismic to those whose asses ride on the elite diplomatic intrigues. But in the big picture it will not change the way the top lizards in global politics, money and war have done business since the feudal age -- which is to say with arrogant disregard for the rest of us. Theirs is an ancient system of human dominance that only shifts names and methodologies over the centuries.

The advantages of light rail

Due to police action at E 122nd Avenue and Burnside, MAX trains are bypassing the E 122nd Ave station. Shuttle buses are carrying riders to that station from the E 102nd Ave and E 148th Ave stations. A warming bus is also on scene for evacuees involved in the police situation.
