The Revolution Is Not Over (Continued)

The BBC reports from Egypt:

Egyptian protesters have stormed the headquarters of the secret police in Cairo, demanding that the organisation be dismantled.

It followed rumours that officials were destroying documents that could be used in court to prove human rights abuses.

On Friday, some 200 protesters stormed the agency's offices in Alexandria after police fired on protesters.

The abolition of the force has been a demand of protesters who ousted Hosni Mubarak as president in February.

WikiLeaks is tracking the fallout here. And here's my favorite tweet of the day: "Lol all my friends are inside state security hq reading through secret files."

    Inside the SS headquarters there was:

    1. A lavish very well equipped Gym and living rooms with comfy chairs and LCD screens
    2. Underground cells
    3. Huge stock of food and drinks
    4. Enormous amounts of shredded papers and documents
    5. Signs on the wall one of which said” trusting someone is the first step to being defeated” this is a rough translation to “الإطمئنان أول طريق الانهيار”
    6. Huge amounts of Tramadol pills ,Viagra pills and condoms
    7. Hand cuffs with pins that are to be inserted in the flesh ,some of which has blood on them
    8. Hooks in the ceiling of one of the rooms where people used to be hung on them
    9. A lot of other devices that I have no idea how they were used some of which looked like a keyboard with a joystick
    10. Electrifying devices
    11. Files about literally everyone from copies of CVs , lists of club members ,files with the names of college students or even people at the general assemblies of any entity be it a club , a company , a school or anything.

    The SS officers were hiding in locked rooms and they didn’t even let the army in until these rooms were forcefully opened by the people and a blood fest was in order.

    Huge amounts of Tramadol pills, Viagra pills and condoms

    Sounds awesome...wait, what would the secret police need that stuff for?

  • Lara Logan||

    I'm not sure what the Tramadol is for

  • db||

  • ||

    But not much of one.

  • Cambion||

    Speaking as someone who is on Tramadol right now, it's baby Vicodin. This makes me sad for the secret police, they can't be very good if all they can get is Tramadol.

    It does almost nothing for pain. Doctors in the US prescribe it when it looks too suspicious to give someone a big boy pain killer.

    this is where our sympathy should lie. Their SECRET POLICE can't even get decent pain meds.

  • Anderson Cooper||

    Condoms? The liars said they didn't have any!

  • db||

    Either a perk of the profession, or used in institutionalized rape of prisoners.

  • ||

    The rape had crossed my mind. But I don't get what the Tramadol has to do with rape.

  • db||

    Probably a separate use. I didn't find anything in the wiki article that indicated tramadol would be used for torture, but perhaps it could be used for easing prisoners' acute pain and/or to induce withdrawal symptoms that might give questioners a carrot to go with the sticks.

  • ||

    There is one thing: tramadol can cause a difficulty or inability to ejaculate in men, especially with higher doses. So combining it with the Viagra could have been used to prolong rapes.

    A somewhat related topic. Slate thinks that the solution to Sudan's problems is to stop drilling for oil so that everyone is equally poor again. Read this for an insight into liberals' souls.

    Be careful reading it. I think the stupid can actually infect your harddrive.

  • Cytotoxic||

    I played it safe and pulled out before brain cells started popping. So now, to avoid the thought that poor people and their governments are capable of killing other poor people, the liberal MO is to blame oil instead of guns. Because one's an inanimate solid and the other is an inanimate liquid, I suppose.

  • ||

    That is right. Before they found oil there, the Sudan was a peaceful place an actually the inspiration for the tribe in The Gods Must Be Crazy. It was just like that until the evil corporations showed up.

  • Voxpo||

    Well, Jonas Max Ferris said this on Fox Business last night: "I'm not so sure you want falling commodity prices. Look, that's the sign of a depression."

    Contrast with:
    "We observe that, when a product is plentiful, it sells at a low price; thus, the producer earns less. If all the producers are in this plight, they are all poverty-stricken; hence, it is abundance that ruins society. And, as every person holding a theory seeks to put it into practice, one sees in many countries the laws of man warring against the abundance of things." -Bastiat

  • MNG||

    Where to begin?

    First "Slate thinks that the solution to Sudan's problems is to stop drilling for oil"

    Actually, I guess you mean Dan Morrison's (the author's) position, because Slate has many different authors of various opinion's and stripes. Saying it must be Slate's opinion because he published there is like saying every Steve Chapman article published here is Reason's opinion. Secondly, after reading it I'm not even sure this is Dan Morrison's opinion or if he is just relaying the opinion of this cabinet official in Sudan. Thirdly, if this were Morrison's and the cabinet official's opinion how in the world do those two people provide an " insight into liberals' souls?" What does it mean to say this cabinet official in South Sudan is a "liberal?" And all I can find about Morrison is that he is the author of travelogue which recieved this blurb:

    The Black Nile is eye-opening, breath-taking, heart-pounding and, frankly, all the adventure I’m up for now. –Ellis Henican, Fox News Channel and Newsday

    Yeah, the voice of liberalism indeed!

    John wonders why I pester him. This kind of sloppy slop thinking is why.

  • DNS||

    As southern Sudan hurtles toward its July debut as the world's newest country, Adwok, a highly respected Cabinet minister who hails from southern Sudan's Upper Nile oil patch, has a simple plan to ensure his homeland's economic security: shut down the oil wells.

    This may sound like suicide to a less radical observer of Sudan, given the south's Stone Age poverty and its reliance on oil for 98 percent of its revenues. But to Adwok, the $10 billion of oil revenue that has kept south Sudan afloat in recent years has also made the region a model of corruption and inequality. He would destroy the economy to save it.

    "Cut the oil," he says, and he's serious. "It would be good for the country."

    MNG is Sudanese?

  • Jerry||

    How about they just make the drilling royalty free and protect property rights so that people negatively affected by the oil companies can get their environmental damages paid?

    How is Huckabee a hypocrite? Opposition to encouraging out of wedlock births is a longtime conservative chestnut, recently endorsed by Palin, Coulter and others. I've not heard of Huckabee having a kid out of wedlock so where does this charge of hypocrite come from?

    Well, as long as we're linking to teh STOOPID this morning, here's Froma Harpie...er, Harrop....positing that increasing taxes will "fix the economy".

    Enjoy...

    http://www.detnews.com/article.....he-economy

  • DNS||

    Social Security is now driving up deficits. Ohio Republican Sen. Rob Portman said that on "PBS NewsHour," noting, "This year, Social Security will pay out more than it brings in." True ... but. Like others intent on privatizing the program, Portman ignores the Social Security Trust Fund. For more than a quarter century, American workers have been paying extra taxes into the fund to cover this very situation. The fund's assets are invested in U.S. Treasury securities.

    Portman's claim is like parents saying that when they tap their college savings account to pay tuition that they couldn't afford with that year's earnings, they are spending money they don't have.

    Someone needs to inform this "journalist" that (a) there is no "trust fund", (b) there is this thing called reducing spending, and (c) her analogy is incorrect. Investing using SS IOU's to buy treasury bonds is simply writing more IOU's: the metaphorical college fund is more solvent and secure than the ponzi scheme that is SS.

    According to Drudge Michael Moore says America is not broke.

    Michael Moore and Tony apparently learned their economic analysis at the same school.

    According to somebody on some teevee show I was not paying very close attention to this morning, Moore apparently said recently the wealth of evil plutocratic rich people belongs to "society" and "society" should repossess said wealth and deliver it unto the deserving poor.

    Robin Hood was a limousine liberal, apparently.

  • J. Tull||

    Society, you're a woman.

  • ||

    Yeah, you first fat boy.

  • Tony||

    How dare liberals succeed in the marketplace. They don't deserve it, they believe in a slightly higher tax rate for millionaires!

  • ||

    If you think the government knows better what to do with your money than you do, you can send it to the treasury. The treasury does accept gifts. Any liberal who doesn't voluntarily send the full amount up to what he thinks the prope tax rate should be, is no different than someone who thinks we should go to war but won't volunteer or let his kids volunteer.

    Either live by your principls Tony or shut the fuck up. Don't sit around and spend millions and tell the rest of us working stiffs how the government doesn't get enough of our paychecks.

  • ||

    Think of it this way, at least 20% of the voters describe themselves as very liberal. That is around 40 million people. If everyone of them would voluntarily send in an extra 10K a year, that would be 400 billion extra in the treasury ever year. They could single handedly cut the deficit by over a fifth and take away the Tea Party's biggest complaint. If they would each send in an extra 5K to state and local governments, they could stop people like Scott Walker from killing the schools.

    Why won't they do this? Why won't they help their own cause? Most of them could afford 10 or 15K a year. And the millionairs like Moore could make up for the ones who couldn't.

  • ||

    Come on Tony, admit it, nothing you do with your money is more important than what the government could do with it. Who cares if selfish libertarians won't send in theirs? That doesn't change the fact that your money could be better spent by the government. Why prevent that good from happening just to prove a point to a bunch of selfish Libertarians?

  • MNG||

    I think the idea is that we had private charity to address many of our ills and it was found wanting. Government, funded by taxation, seems to provide much more resources to fix certain problems. Making it voluntary only gives people incentives not to pay as they will benefit from the programs even if they do not pay...But you knew that (well, should have known that).

  • ||

    Minge, in your goading of John you have picked up the bad habit of dropping rhetorical turds like this. Not to mention the equivocating, socratic badgering, and general semantic meandering to wear down your opponent...which speaks more of persistence than of intelligence.

    You always harp on us glibertards for our abhorrence to coercion, but that seems to be the first solution that you have for any problem. Charities can't help all of the needy as the government can(an assertion that I remain skeptical of): send out some jackbooted fatigue wearing troglodytes to 'collect' alms for the poor(and the army of govt bureaucrats needed to disperse these funds).

    Epistemically we cannot truly use the intentions of Moore, Tony, and others as part of our argument, because it's impossible to know really. But, when every issue calls for men in guns to become a proxy for enforcing the whims of the advocate I begin to think that maybe said advocate has a thing for the vicarious power that those men with guns bring.

  • Mr Whipple©®™||

    I think the idea is that we had private charity [government] to address many of our ills and it was found wanting.

    Government, funded by taxation, seems to provide much more resources to fix certain problems.

    Seems, is the operative word.

    Making it voluntary only gives people incentives not to pay as they will benefit from the programs even if they do not pay

    Who benefits? The people who choose not to pay? These programs should only benefit people who are unable to pay.

  • ||

    When is Moore going to give all that wealth he doesn't need to "society?" Otherwise, he's just another hypocrite.

  • MNG||

    Again, not sure why he is a hypocrite. His claim is not "all wealthy people should give up all the money they don't need" it is "people like me should pay more in taxes." By actually taking his time and working to make that happen politically I'd say he was being the opposite of a hypocrite.

  • ||

    Moore:

    They're sitting on the money, they're using it for their own -- they're putting it someplace else with no interest in helping you with your life, with that money. We've allowed them to take that. That's not theirs, that's a national resource, that's ours. We all have this -- we all benefit from this or we all suffer as a result of not having it,

    The easiest way to spot a scoundrel is the continuous use of "we" in all their arguments. "We" must do that, "we" own that, as long as "I" am the one leading the masses.

    These articles are brutal. The obsession with marriage is amazing. And the assumption that all women are as narcissistic and navel-gazing as she is.

    Mental health...you're doing it wrong.

    "I have a pedigree like an Arabian thoroughbred -- double Ivy League degrees in art history, the ability to speak in five languages, a resume full of prestigious jobs in the art world, a history of international travel that even Bruce Chatwin would gape at -- and it's come to the point that if a man doesn't immediately identify me as crazy, I question if he's even listening to me when I open my mouth."

    Ugh, men are not the only ones whose eyes glaze over when you speak.

    "Ugh, men are not the only ones whose eyes glaze over when you speak."

    Quite possibly true, and I don't have a spare 8 hours a day to worship the person making that statement.

    Does her expectation that her family will help her raise her child fall into a "free rider" problem? She sees her extended family as a bunch of people that will babysit her child for free. I'm wondering if she ever offered to help her friend or family out by taking their kids for a day or two.

    Do you know what men don't want? A lot of things that I really value about myself.

    Such as my total lack of a sense of humor and my vibrator.

    You can have my vibrator when you pry it from my cold, dead, and moist fingers

    "You're extraordinarily smart, and you're extraordinarily beautiful. You need a man who is either so strong that he can stand up to you, or so weak that you can walk all over him. I'm just a normal man. I'm not the man for you,'" [he said].

    As I was leaving, she said to me, with a great deal of kindness: "You're pretty, and you're smart. It's a curse. You'll have a lot of difficulty finding a man."

    Yeah, surely that's the problem. Wouldn't be the arrogance or misandry. People who would gloat about their two liberal arts degrees or the pedigree of their schooling are absolutely unbearable.

    I have bowed low to the Royal Saudi Family, so they will accede to my request to arm the Libyan rebels. I can return to the links -- jaunty golfer I am.

    Wow, great criticism. Full of things that are incredibly important, unlike Obama's retarded policy decisions.

    Squeal!

    This seems like a problem. Destroying files is not right.
