Capital is a Treasonous offense.

So now Britain got “Shell”ed in their own territory waters and the once-proud Royal Navy is facing the same kind of humiliation handed to the once-proud U.S. Navy in OUR territorial waters. Our navy got bitch-slapped by the British, told to scurry off and mind their own affairs and let the Grown Ups handle the mess.
Turnabout being fair play, as Shakespeare said, but damn it the oceans don’t belong to any nation any more than they do to any group of arrogant oil company scheiss-kopfen. They don’t rightfully belong to the Human species either. As if the Big Pigs were going to Shell out any of the dividends to the rest of the world in the first second or last place.
I bet the Murdoch puke-meister is breathing a sigh of relief that something came along to divert attention from his manipulations.
No sense of even a little bit of gravedancing joy over it, though. The oceans provide the life of the planet, and destroying the food, water and air supply that supports the rest of us will destroy the Rich as well… but then, it’ll destroy the rest of us along with them.

Robot Workers

There’s a commercial for a well known insurance company that has a woman saying “To save money I enrolled my kids in a day care center run by robots”
 
And one for a hamburger chain which has a robot trying to eat one of their sandwiches “Machines can’t eat them, machines shouldn’t make them”. Noble sentiments that, but for the fact that an auto insurer and fellow earth-rapists like a Fast Food restaurant really aren’t doing much for humanity or the rest of the species on the planet either. Like self-checkout machines at stores. Designed to maximize profits by simply not paying humans. Some of them, like the ones at WalMart, go even further and bitch at you if you don’t scan or put money in fast enough. Service With A Snarl.

Meanwhile the WalMart franchise won yet another worker lawsuit where they fired a man who was hired to do another job, got sentenced to the Greeter Job but, he had suffered a stroke and could not raise the corners of his mouth in a smile so they fired him.

It’s a diseased system. Knowing it’s also a failing system is small comfort, because they’ll take the Real People down with them.

When a corporate entity says it puts workers first or customers first, the corporate lies through its inhuman teeth. It’s sad to see a very customer oriented industry going the way of total rudeness, both in hiring/firing the human beings who do exactly ALL of the work to put money into the bank accounts of the McCorporate McEmpire. And to the people who shop at their stores, pay good money to receive shitty service and shitty merchandise, with fewer and fewer choices of places to shop that aren’t wholly owned by the very tiny minority who own the vast majority of the wealth.

On the other hand, the Electronic Bitch robot checker actually DOES show the innate nastiness of the Corporate “person”.

Of course, it’s “crazy” or “stupid” to complain about such treatment, we know that because we have asinine comments posted from time to time praising the Capitalist system in the only way possible, not by cheering for any inherent goodness in the system (for there is none), but by making ad hominem attacks against any who dares to criticize.

Soylent Green is PEOPLE!

Glenn Beck going blind, yes, it IS paybacks… from himself to himself

Now, I do know that Macular Degeneration isn’t caused by lifestyle choices. Where HIS guilt in his own blindness is that the Corporations who FUND and ORGANIZE the TeaTards and also pay him more money a month than Real Construction Workers make in a LIFETIME of REAL work, to pose as a Working Class Citizen, have with the help of the Republican, Libertarian, and now Racist-ass Tea Parties, consistently blocked research into Macular Degeneration.
Consistently. The same way Ronald and Nancy Reagan blocked socially and politically any effective research into Alzheimers until Ronald was diagnosed. Their Accomplices at FOX “news” manipulation have funded the TeaTards at first “secretly”, an open secret but they denied it, until the Supremes, most notably Clarence “Uncle” Thomas, whose wife is a Corporate Lawyer Whore, decided that Corporations are better than and have more rights than us mere mortal peasants, and now the TeaTards have a little dilemma on their bloodstained hands… They’ve been outed by their Owners as being Corporate Whores.
Now, I don’t really want Glenn Beck to Go Blind. For one thing he’s going to suck up Medical Resources trying to buy his way out of it, even if the Macular Degeneration research were fully funded today it won’t save his eyes.
The punk-ass Bitch made a career out of Spiritual Blindness and while he probably DOES deserve blindness.. we the people really don’t deserve to have to listen to him make himself into a Pity-pot Martyr for years to come.

Much like Rush Limbaugh, when he had chest pains in Honolulu, and was kept for observation overnight. Longer actually. Then said he got no special treatment, ANYBODY with chest pains gets that treatment…

He neglected to mention “IN HAWAII”. Which has Socialized Medicine and has for 30 years. People in the full-on Corporate States like Texas and Colorado don’t get that kind of treatment, unless they’re Rich.

The TeaTards also don’t mention that all medical research is publicly funded, even through “private” donations. The Richest “generously” give to the foundations, BUT, they get the money back in Tax Breaks.
My, what Love and Charity! And of course, like our friend Bernie Herpin tried really hard to avoid saying, they have somebody blow a trumpet before them when they do their alms… on the public dime, and probably write off the expense of the trumpet player as a Business Expense. Such VICTIMS they are! Pay other peoples money to make themselves look good then pay MORE Tax-deductible Other Peoples money to make themselves out to be Christ-on-the-Cross if somebody happens to mention it.

Glenn Beck is expected to milk his “misfortune” to the tune of an eight digit pay raise on his Corporate Lie Show.

Meanwhile, a POOR person, a Real Worker, who starts going blind from M.D., or perhaps from workplace hazards, or from Environmental pollution, if he doesn’t have the Really Expensive Insurance he can’t afford on a REAL Workmans’ salary.. ALL of which Glenn Beck “blindly” opposes any remediation thereof… won’t even be diagnosed until far too late.

If the massive funding FOX is going to Hypocritically “give” at Corporate Welfare Tax-Break public expense, to the Macular Degeneration research, and actually DO find a cure or at least a Treatment, the Working Person I used as an example still won’t benefit.

Because Health Care is a Privilege of the parasite class.

Panama Banana say that three times real fast…

But there was a strike against the Government run Banana Industry which unlike the traditional “Banana Republic” isn’t a government owned by the Banana Industry. Close enough though, they’re bought and Paid (on long credit terms) for by American Fat-Cats who believed and their descendants still do that their money and American (not Rich) soldiers providing the Assassinations necessary to maintain that money entitles them to own the whole world. Especially those nations physically closest to our Arbitrarily assigned borders.
By the way, Corporate Warfare and Corporate Welfare are two of the key components of Fascism.
The government forces attempted to take the Union leaders prisoner, and killed two union members and wounded 120 others (by Government count) three of whom are in hospitals in comas. And under arrest. Probably for violently attacking a Police Billy Club or Gun Muzzle with their foreheads. Repeatedly throwing their heads under the stomping Jack-boots of the Police even after being handcuffed. The workers, Indigenous people mostly, (that’s code for “held in perpetual povertyslavery on the basis of Race” by the way) responded by taking 4 of the cops prisoner. Only the Right Wing code for that is “hostages”. One of the causes of the strike was the Puppet Government of Panama (guess which American Corporate Government holds the puppet strings) trying, of course not on American orders, that would be silly to contemplate… passed laws forbidding Union Activity especially strikes.

The government “graciously” suspended enforcement of the law, temporarily until they can find some way to get enough American gunboats and Marines into the country to put the Union down for good errr… I mean, find some way to Legally enforce it.

Panama wasn’t the Original “Banana Republic”, although it follows the model, have U.S. Corporations, backed by the Military, which they’ve exempted themselves from paying the bills thereof, incite a “revolution” in the country which doesn’t have strong laws to force the people to surrender their lands, resources, freedoms and especially their labor to the corporate Overlords. The “revolutionaries” run into resistance from the non-cooperative government, then call for the United States government to send soldiers to come and rescue them. It’s how the Republic of Texas was formed. How the U.S. took over Hawaii. Puerto Rico. Panama. Iraq….
How we got a third of the land area of the Republic of Mexico after our Former Puppet General Antonio Jose y Maria Lopez de Santa Ana didn’t provide quite the level of cooperation they had expected.

Why Panama was re-taken from the Former Puppet Dictator Manuel Noriega refused to cooperate with the Reagan-Bu’ush Regime, in yet another arranged Coup. Panama was taken from the Republic of Colombia in the exact same manner because Colombia was leaning toward allowing a French firm to build the Canal (which was going to be built regardless)

Noriega helped finance the Banana Republic attempted coup in Nicaragua allegedly by being a go-between for Oliver North and the Medellin cocaine growing and marketing industry. The part about the North connection is “erased” in the American Memory Hole OR WAS IT?

The original “Banana Republic” was Honduras. Honduras which has ONCE MORE been taken down in a Coup against a populist “dictator” who made the horrendously Anti-American decision that the labor and resources of the Nation of Honduras belongs to the PEOPLE of Honduras, and not to the American Corporate Overlords. The true and exact reason the U.S. government condemns the nations of Cuba and Venezuela as “rogue states” because they actually stand for the national interests of THEIR OWN nations rather than the Corporate Owners of the United States.

And anybody who resists Corporate Fascism anywhere in the world is declared under the still-in-effect Bu’ush Regime directives like the so-called “Patriot” act to be a Terrorist.

Would you sell your kid for 253 dollars?

That’s what the people of Bhopal India were told to do when the “compensation” was announced 24 years ago. That’s after 2 years of LawyerFights over Limited Liability and “Tort Reform”. The Reaganites including Ron Paul, the Dad-part of the Paul and Paul Father-son Hate Team, rather than celebrate the judgment of 12,400 rupees per each dead Indian, bitched and whined that it was Too Much.

The BAIL for the Guilty Parties, or at least the lower level Guilty parties, nine in all, one deceased and one “hiding” in a Country Club gated community on Long Island, was 25,000 rupees apiece. $502. For 25,000 counts of Murder. That’s three times the “official” count. The official count was 8000 initially and another 9000 since.
If Union Carbide wants to call that libel or slander, it would be up to them to prove it.

The Union Carbide Corporation, the truly guilty party, is not required to meet the responsibilities of a Real Human Citizen even though they have more “rights” than a real human citizen. Ron and Rand Paul and all the other Reaganite Corporate Sucks say Amen.

I was charged with possession of a knife that doesn’t fold up in Texas once, the bail for that was $800. The actual BOND for it was $2000. You know, that makes me feel especially hard core when my bond for merely carrying a knife was 4 times that for 25,000 counts of Capital Murder.

Incidentally, the BBC report only counts the initially killed, not those who have died subsequently. The clinic that Union Carbide opened to “treat the injured” closed about 12 years ago. The residues of that explosion and all the accumulated Union Carbide waste chemicals over the decades are still killing people. Sans the $253 payout per dead kid.

Maybe the criminals at British Petroleum will receive a stiffer payment. It would be next to impossible for the punishment to be lighter than that.
No, Really. Look up “impossible” in the dictionary and right next to it will be a picture of somebody getting a lighter slap on the wrist for a heinous crime.

But, after all, the economic victims of BP are (for now) mostly American citizens, a large part of them White and there’s even the damage to some of the Playground Beaches where the richest like to go, when their Very Important Jobs holding down their office chairs, keeping them from drifting off into space, become too wearisome and they need a break.

I figure one oil stained beach on a Private Island will fetch more in damages than 25,000 dead Indians.
