Another FOX brainwash session

They're reporting the mine collapse in China as being a failure of the Communist economic system, and just not pointing out that it's CAPITALIST deregulation that caused it, just like the mine collapses in New Zealand, Chile, Peru, West Virginia.... and the Deepwater Horizon oil rig in the Gulf Oil spill Massive Petroleum Hemorrhage were caused by the POP principle. Profits Over People. The difference is that in China the Death Penalty applies to murder by Corporation. The CEO of the Chinese mine is likely to become an unwilling organ donor. Don L Blankenship, the Retired CEO of Massey Energy, who created 29 job openings with one (predictable AND predicted) reaction to defiance of existing regulations, will continue to be a multi-millionaire and will continue to donate to Right Wing Causes like, loosening regulations even further... so he can KILL more miners, Oil workers, factory workers, construction workers, farm workers, unlike himself REAL workers, and feast on the proceeds of their life and death. Those who like myself are merely crippled by their policies will be discarded, jailed, treated as psychotics and criminals and, if the plans of Blankenship and his allies, and their political appointees, to buy the entire governance

Capital = Job creation, as explained by CenturyLink formerly Qwest formerly SW Bell

and somewhere in there a brief fantasy relationship with Yahoo as an internet service provider and a general screwing to the taxpayers of the City of Irving and Dallas county being thrown in... but I once more digress. CenturyLink "absorbed" Qwest's facilities, employees and corporate debts in a process called merger where all duplicated or "redundant" jobs on both sides of the merger were downsized. Meaning XXX number of real people lost their tech and service sector jobs. That's the way it looks on any prospectus of any merged corporations, in order to convince people to invest more capital in those corporations. In reality the jobs created would be debt collectors and repossession crews and foreclosure agents. BUT that's what they tell the Money People. Those of us who are in the Peasant Majority are told that we should welcome CenturyLink along with the massive tax breaks given on top of the ones they already enjoyed PLUS extras for "Job Creation" in our communities... we're told that these massive layoffs is somehow an opportunity for those "downsized" out of having a living wage job to get a job with a company who has just laid off about 20 percent of their workforce

“as long as it keeps us safe”

Today the big story is that it's September 9th. Whoop di diddly doo. Also, there was an alert which caused Washing Tundy Sea and New Dork to be, how shall I say it, under no-rights martial law. And they got at least one FumDuck to say "I don't mind as long as it keeps people safe". The tip on which they were operating has still so far yielded no identification of the three terrorists who are allegedly right now allegedly stalking the streets of America waiting to blow people up. This sounds like a case of "If we can't get a REAL terror threat, we'll invent one and hope enough Americans are too stupid to catch on." While a real threat manifested itself, the Terrorist Hunt over the past decade has bankrupted America chasing shadows and allowed the infrastructure to rot and Corporations to poison, break down and just basically destroy America in the pursuit of their god the Dollar Bill. They even call it "The Almighty". To the point that a simple error blacked out San Diego and a few other choice locations for 12 hours. So, where are all these Right Wing FumDucks standing on the issue of Government Measures Which

It’s official. We’re screwed.

I didn't want to post anything about this, not here, guess it's my Irish part of my heritage not wanting to speak the name of the devil. But the reactors in Japan are now officially out of control. What makes it official is that Obama made an official emergency statement that there was no official emergency.   The dude can't do what Bush or Reagan did, look us straight in the eye and tell the most outrageous lies. He had to include a little informercial for the Nuclear Industry at home too, and clean coal. Said that the American nuke plants were given a clean bill of health... by the same Nuclear Regulatory agencies that were gutted for the past three decades by Reagan, Bush the not quite as stupid and The Chimp. Which were the part of the same Nuclear Experts team which declared the Japanese reactors safe.

Happy 18th Re-Birthday, to me…

It was 18 years ago last Friday that I woke up as a healthy, badly underpaid and moderately radicalized minimum wage Construction Laborer and 5 minutes before quiting and pay time (they didn't pay me either) was reborn as a badly disabled, even worse paid and definitely Radicalized Ex-Construction worker. The De-Regulated Fully Privatized, Right To Work but No Right To Health Care Corporate Regime that I'm supposed to not even TRY to vote against next week, "Defeat is Inevitable, Resistance is Futile, You will be assimilated" attitude has cost me the use of my feet. In case any of the Tea-bag or Republican Mainstream or other Right Wing Extremist groups wonder why anybody would vote against their "Freedom to Conform and Obey" platform, that's not a complete answer but it's a Really Damned Good Start. Had there been fully socialized health care in America for the past 18 years my right foot would not have died and it would have saved almost a quarter of a million dollars in my case alone. Shove that up your Fiscal "conservative" ummm... left nostril, o ye Stupid Ones, and then line up and take turns kissing my ..errr... right foot. The one
