Scuttlebutt Wrap-up

February 15 2008

"No, I don't like what you got me hanging from."
--"Pretty Noose," Soundgarden

  • No, MIM did not say anything about Mousnonya and the youtube controversy. We are far, far behind in evaluating the old Art Minister's work, though we notice the great energy. We now move to MIM Lite and so we mean no offense to Mousnonya in particular in not having evaluated the youtube struggles.

  • Gorbachev: "I have 1/32 or 1/64 or some portion of Native blood, but no one will ever know it. I mean I will never accept a scholarship or job by using that."
    Audience: [Nothing.]
    Gorbachev: [Nothing.]

  • MIM only suspended new offensive operations five days ago, but already there have been setbacks in five countries.

  • Hey, Mike, is calling the PCP "dismal," "brutal" and the equivalent of the military regime in Peru "progressive"? Just wondering. Maybe we should investigate more carefully?

  • Astrological shell game: one shell has a concrete plan and could be Marxist. One shell has no concrete analysis, just a world party idea in favor of the plan. Another shell has no concrete analysis, just a world party idea opposed to the one concrete plan being discussed.

    The masses are going to have a hard time figuring out all the difficulties. There is Wang Ming and Trotskyist line blocking the way. "There is no Marxism that is not concrete."

  • Healthy babies, my ass.

  • The pundits are going to be happy with the three presidential candidates left with a chance. There will be a cleansing of the past image, no matter what. The only question is how. All three candidates represent some attempt to get the intellectuals back on imperialism's side.

  • Thank god for MIM Lite so we do not have to talk to anymore Liberal intellectuals. What an awful document this is really. "No investigation, no right to speak,"--Mao

    Translation: shut the fuck up if you don't know anything--difficult concept for spontaneous crackertopians.

  • In-your-face-attacker-for-the-first-time: Getting the cancellation of a merit-based scholarship of one and only one minority group in the Big Ten universities plus the University of Chicago is not a "persynal problem."

  • Hey, we do not stab in the back. We are accountable.
