A Salon Tribute to HST

Read it here.

HST On the State of the Nation

"The American nation is in the worst condition I can remember in my
lifetime, and our prospects for the immediate future are even worse. I
am surprised and embarrassed to be a part of the first American
generation to leave the country in far worse shape than it was when we
first came into it. Our highway system is crumbling, our police are
dishonest, our children are poor, our vaunted Social Security, once the
envy of the world, has been looted and neglected and destroyed by the
same gang of ignorant greed-crazed bastards who brought us Vietnam,
Afghanistan, the disastrous Gaza Strip and ignominious defeat all over
the world. The Stock Market will never come back, our Armies will never
again be No. 1, and our children will drink filthy water for the rest
of our lives. The Bush family must be very proud of themselves today,
but I am not. Big Darkness, soon come. Take my word for it."

"The utter collapse of this profoundly criminal Bush conspiracy will
come none too soon for people like me, or it may already be too late.
The massive plundering of the U.S. Treasury and all its resources has
been almost on a scale that is criminally insane, and has literally
destroyed the lives of millions of American people and American
families. Exactly. You and me, sport -- we are the ones who are going
to suffer, and suffer massively. This is going to be just like the Book
of Revelation said it was going to be -- the end of the world as we
knew it."

"They get control of the U.S. economy, their friends get rich. These
are not philosopher-kings we're talking about. These are politicians.
It's a very sleazy way of using the system. One of the problems today
is that what's going on today is not as complex as it seems. The
Pentagon just asked for another $14 billion more in the budget, and
it's already $28 billion. That's one sector of the economy that's not
down the tubes. So, some people are getting rich off of this. It's the
oligarchy. I believe the Republicans have never thought that democracy
was anything but a tribal myth. The GOP is the party of capital. It's
pretty basic. And it may have something to do with the deterioration of
educational system in this country. I don't think Bush has the
slightest intention or concern about educating the public.... Who
does vote for these dishonest shitheads? They are the racists and hate
mongers among us -- they are the Ku Klux Klan.

I piss down the throats of these Nazis."
