Rolling Stone/Matt Taibbi: Obama sold out to Wall Street

“There’s no other way to say it: Barack Obama, a once-in-a-generation political talent whose graceful conquest of America’s racial dragons en route to the White House inspired the entire world, has for some reason allowed his presidency to be hijacked by sniveling, low-rent shitheads.”

After being elected, Obama basically gave everyone from his “change” campaign dead end jobs. All the important posts went to insiders from the same financial giants, that through “bailout” laws now have been granted free money every time and no matter how badly they fuck up themselves and the system.

If you’re not easily tricked into reading longer articles, have a look at the video summary. Taibbi‘s recent writing is highly recommended reading, his style is very readable and entertaining but maintains a striking contrast to the usual correct, bullshit-plagued financial and political reporting.

I have nothing against art on LSD blotters, but putting Obama’s face everywhere is getting plain creepy.

Instead keep playing that one note whoah it tastes like a laser show.

Republicans and the triumph of unreason in a post-Obama USA

“Something strange has happened in America in the nine months since Barack Obama was elected. It has best been summarised by the comedian Bill Maher: “The Democrats have moved to the right, and the Republicans have moved to a mental hospital.””

Carlos Santana wishes Obama would legalize pot

“During his online town hall on March 26, Obama fielded [the most asked] question [in an official “ask-the-president”-forum] about whether legalization of the illicit drug would help pull the nation out of recession. Obama said he didn’t think it was good economic policy, and also joked: “I don’t know what this says about the online audience.”
