What’s wrong with privatizing public resources? Quite a lot, actually…

(Editor’s note: Some Colorado Springs councilmen don’t see anything wrong with leasing public assets for private profit. Is there anything wrong with that?)
 
Well, let’s see. The City Council is so top heavy with Real Estate Brokers including Princess Barbie Czeladtko, and Tim Leigh, and if they get their Fascist way fellow Realtor Steve Bach as “strong mayor” who all ran on money donated by people who favor privatizing ALL public lands, from the BLM lands to the Indian Reservations to the National Parks, National Forests and… city and county parks. How would they do that without a conflict of interest? It seems they’re throwing City Funds straight to their own businesses. Then there’s an Issue Princess Barbie and a few of her friends (if self-absolbed Princesses HAVE “friends”) blaming the drastic fall of real estate value on the visibility of poverty.

Specifically the No-Camping ordinance which further punishes homeless PEOPLE for being poor. In a sense actually Demonizes them, the way Princess Lisa went on a screed about “The Homeless” PEOPLE participating in a church Pizza Party at a downtown park. one that’s about three miles as the crow flies and four as the dog trots from prospect lake.

She denounced one person for being in Her Most Learned Snap Diagnosis “schizophrenic”. Something even REAL Doctors can’t do without days of testing done by multi-disciplinary experts working as a team.

It’s simply wonderful that we have such arrogant bigots on City Council yes?

The rest of her statement was truly fascist. She advocated that PEOPLE who have fewer dollars in their pockets should not be seen in public, and especially…

Wait for it…

Are you still waiting?

It’s Worth the Wait….

No really, it is…

Public Parks, such as Prospect Lake and Memorial Park.

Would the Colorado Springs Gestapo Department step up their already dictatorial and arbitrary denial of non-wealthy citizens to have the same access to Parks, Libraries and other PUBLIC places as the Princes and Princesses of the city?

Some of Princess Lisa’s allies in and out of City Government, going by names like Playsinsnow, Patchsi, Janis Heuberger, Beep-beep…

Have suggested without one word of protest from City Council, banning anybody who LOOKS homeless from City facilities.

Because, you see, “public” in their definition means only the Rich part of the “public” and the rest of us can simply eat their shit.

And they have this Capitalist Mythos which says that the Real Estate Crash was caused by the actions of people who cumulatively own a fraction of 1% of the wealth in this town or the nation or world as whole entities. Instead of by the actions of Greed-mongers such as those, like Real Estate Brokers, who bought and sold the idea that a finite resource, land, constantly rising in price, would bring THEM infinite wealth. Like Ponzi Schemes, Chain Letters and Pyramid businesses, it fell apart and took America down with them.

And now, many, including some on City Council, like Leigh and Princess Barbie, are blaming the poorest of the poor for causing it by being seen in public.

Screw that noise, buddy.

There’s already a FAILED restaurant directly across the street from Prospect Lake. Wouldn’t it make more sense to use facilities which already have, unlike a storage area,

Such things as a working Restaurant layout inside? And on their patio dining area as well.

What, the people who believe in the Power of Private Ownership don’t want to purchase that restaurant?

Then there’s, again, the Urban Renewal GentriFascists like Leigh and Czeladtko and Bach will persecute the working class people in this city for “getting too close to THEIR restaurant” by using other park facilities?

Because when your restaurant business idea falls on it’s face, as MOST restaurants do, the non-elite Elitist Pigs like Patchsi, Heuberger, Princess Lisa, etc, will blame the presense of Visible Poverty for THEIR failure. It’s a hallmark of the infantile Narcissist that they’ll blame their failure on the most convenient and most defenseless target available.

They’ll have the CSPig Department doing sweeps to remove “undesirables” from Our Own Property to protect the Delicate Sensibilities of all those Wealthy Captains of Capital and their sows and Piglets. Mustn’t actually SEE the blight the acquisition of their Wealth imposes on others. It might, as Princess Lisa pointed out about the pizza party at Acacia Park, cause some vague and undefined danger to the Children.

But only, of course, the Children of the Wealthy, our own kids can, like us, line up and receive a ration of Rich Folks Shit to eat.

What, are the Rich upset that a scion of Poverty can offer back an equal and, really, much more deserved, ration of scorn upon their Greedy Nasty Ways as the scions of Wealth heap upon US?

Tough. The only way you’ll force us to kneel before you, O Ye Rich, is to have paid minions like the Police do your fighting for you.

Yeah, you’re really “elite” there.

The “jobs” you’re going to bring are of course going to be Minimum Wage. Nice Try, Bozo, thinking you can buy us with another Work-your-self-into-a-lifetime-of-Debt “career” opportunity. I bet you or any other member of the council would never work at minimum Wage and haven’t since the time you were teenagers and your Minimum wage was supplemented by assistance from your parents. You would cite that it’s impossible to maintain your lifestyle on Minimum Wage. But the people who are POOR, we don’t deserve your lifestyle, because we’re not born to wealth like you and OUR kids don’t deserve the same opportunities as YOUR fat snot-nose Piglets because they were also not born to Wealth. Wealth accumulated from OUR labor into YOUR Rich pockets.

The “people” you’re going to draw, don’t you mean Rich Bitches like yourself? Oh, sure, we really NEED more Rich People pushing us out of the only homes we have and sneering at us that YOUR money, stolen from OUR labor, somehow makes US inferior to you.

You’re going to colonize an already populated area and say you’re bringing “people” in, what of those PEOPLE who are already HERE, punk?

Very Colonialist and Royalist to think that a region inhabited by poor people is essentially uninhabited. How will you do that without being an outright Racist Prick?

You’re like the literally God-damned Pilgrims coming to Massachussetts, getting rescued by the indians because they were

A. too stupid to even FIND Virginia
and
B. completely worthless as subsistence hunters and farmers…

And then having the extremist GALL within two generations to declare the People Who Were Already Here to be “non-people”. Called us a construct of the devil, demons assuming human form and without souls, and taking as justification that we’re not mentioned in Genesis.
(I originally wrote Leviticus, there’s another issue I use a lot that Chickens, the heart and soul of the Jewish diet, aren’t mentioned in Leviticus. My bad.)

The preacher who said Wrote those words for all to read, Cotten Mather, is the same one who made that ridiculous sermon about America being the New Jerusalem, a city on a hill. The ones your insidiously evil congenital Liar “leaders” use to convince the ignorant that America (meaning the wealthy, not the rest of us ‘peasants’ who can simply eat your shit) should run the entire world in the name of Enlightenment.

And those of us who live in the neighborhoods you covet, like Ahab coveted the vineyards in the portion of Jezreel, we can either conform, by becoming rich even though you’ve instituted so many barriers to that acquisition of wealth, or leave.

Leaving at the point of Police batons and guns and tasers and tear gas.

Which IS the threat of overwhelming force you use to get others to comply to your Imperial Will.

Recommendations for the Denver rally tomorrow…

Find out if Fox News is finally realizing that their shit ain’t flying as well as they thought it would and if they’ve decided to charter a fleet of Greyhounds to bus in TeaBags for the “grass roots” counter rally, sponsored by Fox and the other Koch-suckers.
Then have REAL grass- roots people infiltrate and get a free ride to the rally, courtesy of the Korporate Diktatorship.
Tweet and Facebook that around.
It’s easy to pretend to be a Bagger, just wear one of those stupid “don’t tread on me” caps, carry a confederate battle flag and a sign that says “No munky presdnent!” “Unoins are Socalist!”
Make sure you misspell every word longer than 5 letters or two syllables. Talk really loud about shooting some more liberals. You’ll fit right in. Oh, and don’t take a bath first. Make their bus ride as pleasant as possible.
The Koch-suckers are now trotting out all their “philanthropic” donations, including to PBS… Remind them that the only reason there’s any record of that is because they take every dime of every donation off their taxes. Meaning WE, the worker class, have to pay THEIR advertising budget simply by not cheating on OUR taxes.
Finally, Governor Scott Walker gave us a truly inspirational speech that’s better, more inflammatory for US (if we use it right) in a prank phone call where he thought he was talking to his Whore-Master and major funding source David Koch…. in which he blatantly admits his allegiance to the rich and against the Workers, threatens the opposition legislators with a baseball bat, … none of it actually illegal in itself, but if any Union MEMBER far less an organizer or other official, were to say the same things then the Koch-suckers would have the FBI investigating every single Union member on RICO charges. The “justice” department provides equal protection to Every (billionaire) Citizen. Some are more equal than others.
The transcript: and note the part about the New York Times Slanted Journalism, where they (printed the) interviews of “every stereotype blue collar worker”. They try to hide their contempt for working class people, except when they think they’re in private conversations with their Rich-Bitch corporate sponsors. Typical. And they call US “elitists”.

Walker: Hi; this is Scott Walker.

Murphy: Scott! David Koch. How are you?

Walker: Hey, David! I’m good. And yourself?

Murphy: I’m very well. I’m a little disheartened by the situation there, but, uh, what’s the latest?

Walker: Well, we’re actually hanging pretty tough. I mean, you know, amazingly there’s a much smaller group of protesters almost all of whom are in from other states today. The State Assembly is taking the bill up, getting it all the way to the last point it can be at where it’s unamendable. But they’re waiting to pass it until the Senate’s — the Senate Democrats, excuse me, the assembly Democrats have about a hundred amendments they’re going through. The state Senate still has the 14 members missing but what they’re doing today is bringing up all sorts of other nonfiscal items, many of which are things members in the Democratic side care about. And each day we’re going to ratchet it up a little bit. The Senate majority leader had a great plan he told about this morning — he told the Senate Democrats about and he’s going to announce it later today — and that is: The Senate organization committee is going to meet and pass a rule that says if you don’t show up for two consecutive days on a session day in the state Senate, the Senate chief clerk — it’s a little procedural thing here, but — can actually have your payroll stopped from being automatically deducted —

Murphy: Beautiful.

Walker: — into your checking account and instead, you still get a check, but the check has to be personally picked up and he’s instructing them — which we just loved — to lock them in their desk on the floor of the state Senate.

Murphy: Now you’re not talking to any of these Democrat bastards, are you?

Walker: Ah, I, there’s one guy that’s actually voted with me on a bunch of things I called on Saturday for about 45 minutes, mainly to tell him that while I appreciate his friendship and he’s worked with us on other things, to tell him I wasn’t going to budge.

Murphy: [Expletive] right!

Walker: Mainly because I thought he’s about the only reasonable one over there, I figured if I talked to him, he’d go back to the rest of the gang and say you know, I know Walker and he’s not budging.

Murphy: Now what’s his name again?

Walker: Uh, his name is Tim Cullen —

Murphy: All right, I’ll have to give that man a call.

Walker: Well, actually, in his case I wouldn’t call him and I’ll tell you why: He’s pretty reasonable but he’s not one of us. So I would let him be. I think he is in a position where he can maybe motivate that caucus. But he’s not an ally, he’s just a guy. He was in the Senate years ago, he was actually the Senate Democratic leader back in the ’80s and (former Gov.) Tommy Thompson hired him to be the head of Health and Human Services. He went into the private sector, made real money and became a little more open-minded, and last fall he got elected to the Senate seat he was in 25 years ago. And he’s kind of one of these guys who he really doesn’t care, he’s not there for political reasons, he’s just trying to get something done. So he’s good to reach out to for me, but he’s not a conservative, he’s just a pragmatist.

Murphy: Now who can we get to budge on this collective bargaining?

Walker: Well, I think in the end, a couple of things. One, if the, I think the paycheck will have an impact. Secondly, one of the things we’re looking at next, we’ll probably announce in the next day or two — we’ve been working with our Republican leaders in the Legislature — we’re still waiting on an opinion to see if the unions have been paying to put these guys up out of state. We think there’s at a minimum an ethics violation if not an outright felony.

Murphy: Well, they’re probably putting hobos in suits.

Walker: Yeah.

Murphy: That’s what we do. Sometimes.

Walker: I mean paying for the senators to be put up. I know they’re paying for these guys to be here — I mean, people can pay for protesters to come in and that’s not an ethics code, but, I mean, literally if the unions are paying the 14 senators, if they’re paying for their food, their lodging, anything like that, we believe at a minimum it’s an ethics code violation and it may very well be a felony, misconduct in office. Because see technically, it’s not just a political contribution, it is, if they’re being paid to keep them from doing their job, we think that there’s legally an obstruction of justice, but an obstruction of their ability to do their job, and we still got, the attorney general’s office is looking into it for us. So we’re trying about four or five different angles. Each day we crank up a little bit more pressure. The other thing is I’ve got layoff notices ready, we put out the at-risk notices, we’ll announce Thursday, they’ll go out early next week and we’ll probably get five to six thousand state workers will get at-risk notices for layoffs. We might ratchet that up a little bit too.

Murphy: Beautiful; beautiful. Gotta crush that union.

Walker: Well it’s one of those where in the end, and I’ve had not only Cullen — I’ve talked to him myself — I had three or four of my other business leader friends who know him over the years and just kind of pass the message on to these guys, if they think I’m caving, they’ve been asleep for the last eight years because I’ve taken on every major battle in Milwaukee County and won even in the county where I’m overwhelmingly overpowered politically and it’s because we don’t budge.

Murphy: [Expletive] right.

Walker: If you’re doing the right thing, you stay firm. And in this case, we say we’ll wait it out. If they want to start sacrificing thousands of public workers to be laid off, sooner or later there’s going to be pressure on these senators to come back.

Murphy: Beautiful.

Walker: We’re not compromising. The other thing we may do, ‘cause the senator I mentioned thinks that these guys, you’ve got a few of the radical ones who unfortunately one of them is the minority leader, but most the rest of them are just looking for a way to get out of this. And they’re scared out of their mind, they don’t know what it means. There’s a bunch of recalls up against them. They’d really like to just get up back here and get it over with. So the paycheck thing, some of the other things threatened them. I think collectively there’s enough going on and as long as they don’t think I’m going to cave, which again we have no interest in. An interesting idea that was brought up to me this morning by my chief of staff, we won’t do it until tomorrow is putting out an appeal to the Democrat leader that I would be willing to sit down and talk to him, the Assembly Democrat leader, plus the other two Republican leaders — talk, not negotiate and listen to what they have to say if they will in turn — but I’ll only do it if all 14 of them will come back and sit down in the state assembly. They can recess it to come back in the room to talk to me, but they all have to go back there. The reason is — we’re verifying it this afternoon — but legally, we believe, once they’ve gone into session, they don’t physically have to be there. If they’re actually in session for that day, and they take a recess, the 19 Senate Republicans could then go into action and they’d have a quorum because they started out that way. So we’re double checking that. If you heard that I was going to talk to them, that would be the only reason why. We would only do it if they came back to the Capitol with all 14 of them. My sense is hell, I’ll talk to them, if they want to yell at me for an hour, you know I’m used to that, I can deal with that, but I’m not negotiating.

Murphy: Bring a baseball bat. That’s what I’d do.

Walker: [Laughs] I have one in my office; you’d be happy with that. [Laughs] I have a Slugger with my name on it.

Murphy: Beautiful.

Walker: But in the end, this is, and I even pointed it out last night ‘cause I’m trying to keep out as many of the private unions as possible. I said, this is about the budget. This is about public sector unions. Hell, even FDR got is. There’s no place for the kind of, I mean, essentially you’re having taxpayers’ money being used to pay to lobby for spending more of taxpayers’ money. It’s absolutely ridiculous.

Murphy: Beautiful.

Walker: So this is ground zero, there’s no doubt about it. But I think for us, I just keep telling my, I call any, I tell the speaker, the Senate majority leader every night: Give me a list of people I need to call at home, shore ‘em up. The New York Times of all things, I don’t normally tell people to read The New York Times, but the front page of The New York Times has got a great story, one of these unbelievable moments of true journalism, what it’s supposed to be objective journalism. They got out of the Capitol and went down, one county south from the Capitol to Janesville, to Rock County, that’s where the General Motors plant once was. They moved out two years ago. The lead on this story is about a guy who was laid off two years ago, he’d been laid off twice by GM, who points out that everybody else in his town has had to sacrifice except for all these public employees, and it’s about damn time that they do and he supports me. And they had a bartender, and they had every stereotypical blue collar worker type they interviewed, and the only ones that weren’t with us were people who were either a public employee or married to a public employee. It’s an unbelievable story. So I went through and called a handful, a dozen or so lawmakers I worry about each day and said, “Every one of you should get that story printed out and send it to anyone giving you grief.”

Murphy: [Expletive] right! We, uh, we sent, uh, Andrew Breitbart down there.

Walker: Yeah.

Murphy: Yeah.

Walker: Good stuff.

Murphy: Yeah. He’s our man, you know.

Walker: Well it has been amazing to me, the massive amount of attention. I want to stay ahead, so every day I do a five o’clock press conference, tonight I’m actually doing a fireside chat, the state TV stations are picking up and I guess a bunch of the national ones too. And in the last couple of days when I do the TV shows, I’ve been going after Obama because he’s stuck his — although he’s backed off now — but he’s stuck his nose in here. And I said, they asked me what I thought about it, and I said the last time I checked, this guy’s got a much bigger budget deficit than we do, maybe he should worry about that and not stick his nose in Wisconsin’s business. We’ve had all the national shows, we were on Hannity (“The Sean Hannity Show”) last night, I did “Good Morning America” and “The Today Show” and all that sort of stuff, was on “Good Morning Joe” this morning. We’ve done Greta (“On The Record with Greta Van Susteren”). We’re going to keep getting our message out; Mark Levin (“The Mark Levin Show”) last night. And I gotta tell you, the response around the country has been phenomenal. I had Brian (Sadoval), the new Governor of Nevada, called me the last night he said — he was out in the Lincoln Day Circuit in the last two weekends — and he was kidding me, he’s new as well as me, he said, “Scott, don’t come to Nevada because I’d be afraid you beat me running for governor.” That’s all they want to talk about is what are you doing to help the governor of Wisconsin. I talk to Kasich every day, John’s gotta stand firm in Ohio. I think we could do the same thing with Vic Scott in Florida. I think, uh, (Rick) Snyder, if he got a little more support, probably could do that in Michigan. You start going down the list there’s a lot of us new governors that got elected to do something big.

Murphy: You’re the first domino.

Walker: Yep. This is our moment.

Murphy: Now what else could we do for you down there?

Walker: Well the biggest thing would be — and your guy on the ground (Americans For Prosperity President Tim Phillips) is probably seeing this, it would be well, two things. One, our members, originally the guy that got freaked out about all the bodies here — although I told him an interesting story, I was first elected county executive in Milwaukee of all places. First budget I put through was pretty bold, aggressive and the union went nuts on me and got all sorts of grief. But a couple of weeks later I’m at a Veterans Day parade and I’m going down the line and usually unless you’re a veteran or marching with a veterans’ group, politicians will get polite applause but nobody gets up. I come down the line, 40, 50 people in a row, hands up, thumbs up, you know cheering, screaming, yelling, “Way to go, hang in there, Walker.” And then after about 40, 50 people like that, there’s a guy flipping me off. This goes on 40, 50 [break in recording] … right thing, the people who know it’s right will cheer you, they’ll applaud you, they’ll run through a wall for you. And the people who don’t like you, they’re going to flip you off. But stop worrying about them because the other day there were 70,000 — probably two-thirds were against the bill, one-third were for — 70,000 people at the Capitol. All week there’s been fifteen to thirty thousand a day. But I remind all our lawmakers that there’s five and a half million people in this state. And just because a bunch of guys who can jump off of work because of their union work rules doesn’t mean the rest of the people in your district are with them. So the one thing in your question, the more groups that are encouraging people not just to show up but to call lawmakers and tell them to hang firm with the governor, the better. Because the more they get that assurance, the easier it is for them to vote yes. The other thing is more long term, and that is after this, you know the coming days and weeks and months ahead, particularly in some of these more swing areas, a lot of these guys are gonna need, they don’t actually need ads for them but they’re going to need a message put out reinforcing why this was a good thing to do for the economy and a good thing to do for the state. So the extent that that message is out over and over again is obviously a good thing.

Murphy: Right, right. We’ll back you any way we can. But what we were thinking about the crowd was, uh, was planting some troublemakers.

Walker: You know, well, the only problem with that — because we thought about that. The problem with — my only gut reaction to that would be, right now the lawmakers I’ve talked to have just completely had it with them. The public is not really fond of this. The teacher’s union did some polling and focus groups I think and found out that the public turned on them the minute they closed school down on them for a couple of days. The guys we’ve got left are largely from out of state and I keep dismissing it in all my press comments, saying ehh, they’re mostly from out of state. My only fear would be if there’s a ruckus caused is that would scare the public into thinking maybe the governor has to settle to avoid all these problems. You know, whereas I’ve said, hey, we can handle this, people can protest, this is Madison, you know, full of the ’60s liberals. Let ’em protest. It’s not going to affect us. And as long as we go back to our homes and the majority of people are telling us we’re doing the right thing, let ’em protest all they want. So that’s my gut reaction. I think it’s actually good if they’re constant, they’re noisy, but they’re quiet, nothing happens. Sooner or later the media stops finding them interesting.

Murphy: Well, not the liberal bastards on MSNBC.

Walker: Oh yeah, but who watches that? I mean I went on “Morning Joe” this morning. I like it because I just like being combative with those guys, but, uh. You know they’re off the deep end.

Murphy: Joe (Scarborough) — Joe’s a good guy. He’s one of us.

Walker: Yeah, he’s all right. He was fair to me. I mean, the rest of them were out there. Although I had fun, they had (New York Sen. Chuck) Schumer over from New York on ripping me, and then they had a little clip of a state senator hiding out ripping me, and it was almost too easy. I walked in, Joe asked me a question and I said, well, before I answer that, let me just point out the amazing irony of the fact that you’ve got a United States senator from New York, a senator who by the way is part of a team that can’t seem to balance the federal budget talking about my budget. At least he’s coming into work to talk about something, although it’s mine. And you’ve got one of these 14 state Senate Democrats who can’t even bother to show up and deal with the budget he’s elected to do something about. And uh, so that kind of tells you the whole story right there.

Murphy: Beautiful; beautiful. You gotta love that Mika Brzezinski (co-host of “Morning Joe”); she’s a real piece of [expletive].

Walker: Oh yeah. A couple weeks ago, I’d known Joe before, but I was having dinner with Jim Sensenbrenner when I came into D.C. for a day to do an event and we’d gone over to do the “The Greta Show” and had dinner with Congressman Sensenbrenner and right next to us was the two of them and their guest was [Obama’s Senior Adviser David] Axelrod. I came over, I introduced myself.

Murphy: That son of a [expletive]!

Walker: Yeah no kidding huh? Introduced myself and said I figured you probably knew who I was since your boss was campaigning against me but it’s always good to let them know you know what’s going on.

Murphy: Well, good; good. It’s good catching up with ya’.

Walker: Yeah, well thanks. This is an exciting time. This is, I told my cabinet, I had a dinner the Sunday uh, excuse me, Monday right after the sixth. Came home from the Super Bowl where the Packers won, that Monday night I had all my cabinet over to the residence for dinner, talked about what we were going to do, how we were going to do it, we’d already kind of built plans up but it was kind of the last hurrah before we dropped the bomb. And I stood up and I pulled out a picture of Ronald Reagan, and I said, you know, this may seem a little melodramatic, but 30 years ago Ronald Reagan, whose 100th birthday we just celebrated the day before, had one of the most defining moments of his political career, not just his presidency, when he fired the air traffic controllers. And I said, to me that moment was more important than just for labor relations or even the federal budget. That was the first crack in the Berlin Wall in the fall of Communism because from that point forward the Soviets and the Communists knew that Ronald Reagan wasn’t a pushover. And I said, this may not have as broad of world applications, but in Wisconsin’s history — little did I know how big it would be nationally — Wisconsin’s history, I said, this is our moment. This is our time to change the course of history, and this is why it’s so important that they were all there. I had a cabinet meeting this morning, I reminded them of that. I said, for those who thought I was being melodramatic, you now know it was purely putting it in the right context.

Murphy: [Laughs] Well, I tell you what, Scott: Once you crush these bastards I’ll fly you out to Cali (California) and really show you a good time.

Walker: All right, that would be outstanding. Thanks for all the support in helping us move the cause forward, and we appreciate it, and we’re doing it the just and right thing for the right reasons and it’s all about getting our freedoms back.

Murphy: Absolutely. And, you know, we have a little bit of a vested interest as well. [Laughs]

Walker: Well that’s just it, the bottom line is we’re gonna get the world moving here ’cause it’s the right thing to do.

Murphy: Alright then.

Walker: Thanks a million!

Murphy: Bye-bye!

Walker: Bye.

The Memorial Park Grenade and Drugs

The CS Fuzz Dept isn’t squeaking very loudly about the grenade they found at Prospect Lake a couple of days ago. There’s ways to make a booby trap from a hand grenade, take one and set it down, prop a rock onto it and set the rock on a small stick, so the rock will fall off if the stick is disturbed, lots of ways to make the stick fall out. Test the rig to make sure. assemble it and extract the safety pin then leave, and never go back. That doesn’t seem to be the case with the Lake Grenade. But it’s Apparently a U.S. Army hand grenade of which there are several types, standard enough in triggering style, weight and size of the device, many made by an Israeli based firm called LGB Ltd. The cops would have a database on who supplies them. NOW… Drugs.

The numbers are numbers of deaths attributed to various causes.,
Tobacco 435,000,
Diet/Lifestyle 365,000,
Alcohol 75,000,
Accidental exposure to toxins 55,000
ALL Illicit drugs, direct and indirect 17,000
Aspirin, Tylenol, Midol, Motrin 7000
Cannabis 0

Some results omitted, like prescription drugs. Homicide, Suicide and Gun Related deaths naturally overlap. But there’s Innkeeper laws that hold bartenders responsible if they allow an intoxicated patron to drive away.

There’s homicide laws that hold the supplier of the drugs responsible if the product causes the death of a user. Charge would be Murder actually. Somebody building a home-made grenade or gun would be charged with various wordings of Making an Infernal Device.

Manufacturers of small arms, hand grenades, rifles, pistols-Not liable. Tobacco manufacturers-not liable

Fat Food Restaurants who encourage patrons to eat more calories in one meal than they need in a week, and discourage walk-up or Bicycle up Business (try riding a bicycle in the Drive Thru lane at McToxins, they’ll call the pigs on you, and the Pigs will gladly serve their Corporate Masters) Not Liable. Prescription drug overdoses and accidental mis-dosing and toxicity, Bayer, Baxter, Abbott, Lilly, … not liable.

The manufacturer of the Prospect Lake Grenade… not liable.

The corporations who put out the small arms also put out propaganda designed to provoke, incite and prolong wars, mass murder actually, yet they’re not liable.

Their Propaganda Protectors at (worst offender, there are others) Fox HateSpeech Networks make sure they get to sell their Death Products AND create the market for them, uninterrupted by any silly little old laws like Thou Shalt Not Kill.

United States religious leaders can incite their followers to wars with impunity, tell their followers that the sixth commandment actually doesn’t include wars or death penalty, Because They Say So and if you question their holy word you’re an antichrist and a blasphemer. They tell their followers that if somebody dies while killing for them, in their Holy Crusade, that person goes immediately to Heaven to enjoy the blessings and adoration of God and all His host.

Somebody saying a mirror image of that same statement AGAINST the “crusaders” is judged as a terrorist and can be (according to the U.S.A.P.A.T.R.I.O.T.A.C.T. imprisoned for life or murdered based on the whim of a Military “justice” Tribunal or simply the command of the military leaders.

What wonderful wonderful wonderful leaders we have that they can make such decisions on our behalf and punish us if we don’t agree.

One law for the Corporate Rich and a regime of strict obedience imposed on everybody else.

And they call Liberals “elitists”.

Ed on Internet Radio “pressure points” about Princess Lisa.

I missed the live broadcast/podcast however to term it.
But the show has archives, AND, has a live call in number, it’s just long distance from here and not a toll-free number.
Just a personal take on it, but maybe Mz Czeladtko ought to get a different hairdo.
If I wanted a bunch of completely ridiculous spam flooding my email account I’d do it myself but there’s an online version, somewhere, of the “Dress Up Barbie” program, she could try out the new look OR ANY OF OUR READERS MIGHT… but put Carrie Fisher’s hairdo from Star Wars on her… Barbie also has a tiara to complete the Totally Cryptic And Nobody Would Understand It snark.

The “Business First” agenda completely leaves out Workers, because of course the Republican/TeaBag leaders assume that anybody who doesn’t own the business is too Stupid or Ignorant to have anything relevant to say.
We’re too stupid to notice that it was Corporate Decisions which caused not just the current crash, but every OTHER time Capitalism crashed… including when it took down the Roman Empire which was founded on and funded by the essence of Capital.
Next I’ll be treated to the Scorn Machine where I get called Marxist or Bolshevik, Bolshevik is simply the Russian word for “of the people” or Populist, maybe the “populist” TeaBag party would understand the significance of that comment, probably not because they’re typically dumber than dirt.

And, ladies, Marx has been consistently proved right, Adam Smith has consistently been proved Wrong.
You’d have to imagine it, because it’s invisible, but the Invisible Hand has given us the Invisible Finger-bird repeatedly and each time it gets worse for the workers, save for the one time the Workers got actual concessions made to us. The “marxist” Roosevelt programs.

It should be easy for the Wrong Wing to imagine things, their truly crackpot leaders have them imagining all kinds of things, from a Red under every bed to a Kenyan Birth Certificate.
Comparing them to Goebbels and Herr Schicklgrüber would be unfair to Hitler, because he was never as fruit-loops as any Glenn Beck-Nixon-John Birch Society theory.

Miz Lisa Czeladtko, drop the hell out of the race, M’kay?

You know, there’s not many options. Threatening police actions and lawsuits for people mocking your positions on civic issues, especially when you’re hoping to be in government power, to be honest, would put you right up there with Rivera and his adopted/anointed replacement Bach-door. And the rest of the Clown Parade that is, sadly, our City Government. You’ve worked at St Mary’s, cool. But a few hours a week doesn’t equal one single day of the nightmare Hell that IS Homelessness. And it surely doesn’t give you any moral authority to go putting down people who have to endure that Hell. Go back to the Country Club, m’kay? That guy you saw cursing in the park, Remember? Your instant diagnosis of schizophrenia… what if he isn’t “crazy” or in the case of real schizophrenia, suffering from a degenerative neurological disorder? Would it make any difference to you, personally? How much concern does that show for HIS welfare as opposed to worrying that children might see what illness or death or age or poverty looks like? I call that the Prince Siddhartha Syndrome. Before he became The Buddha.

I don’t know nor do I give a rat’s ass if you personally said that poor people should be banned from public parks, but some of your friends and political colleagues DID and your thundering silence about their massive Hate-Crime is enough for me to lump you in with them.

I live with Autism, maybe you could study that one for a while before you make the assumption that Autists are somehow inferior to “neuro-typicals” the way you obviously did with the Fellow Child of God you wanted to keep out of the park.

There’s been some truly radical talk from your backers in this race, lady. Talk about actually banning people from appearing in public places if they “look” homeless.

One of your accomplices, Janis Heuberger, suggested banning bicyclists from Acacia Park, saying “only the Homeless ride bicycles”.

Now, I WAS homeless for a while, til I got SSI for my broken to hell foot and leg, and of course the Autism. I suffer not so much from these conditions as from the biting scorn of people who think those conditions somehow make Them superior to me. I can perfectly empathize with the fellow at the Acacia Park Pizza Party, if I had people like YOU looking down on me for daring to be in a public place without your royal permission I’d probably feel an overwhelming urge to shout at you too.

And, I’d be in the right to do so. You did far worse to him with your whispers and sneers than any curses he could possibly have screamed at YOU, your highness.

Go back to your Barbie-doll Perfect Rich Bitch world and leave people alone. I’d sooner be in the company of somebody like the Park Hollerin’ fellow than with a stuck up wannabee Princess.

The Homeless PEOPLE you love to hate aren’t the reason for the city’s decline. Capitalism is, in all its inglorious manifestations. That fellow depicted in the statue in the intersection? He cursed the city of Colorado Springs by founding it based on Grand Theft – Everything. The ultimate real-estate baron. There’s not a square inch of downtown that wasn’t taken at gunpoint.

There’s another park downtown, Monument Park, maybe you’ve seen it? It’s a “monument’ to some White Boys who picked a fight with some Indians who were “off the reservation”. And LOST. Teenage racist punks.

But it’s called the Last Indian Massacre in Colorado.

Imagine that. Born in America and told where you can be or not to be. Kind of like telling the homeless PEOPLE that they’re not allowed to be seen downtown, that they must stay on the Homeless Reservation at Marian House or the New Hope Center.

But that’s the kind of “We’re ever so much better than YOU” horse-shit the Colorado Springs Establishment loves to promote. It gets tiresome. It’s a blight on America and we really don’t need to promote it further, now, do we? Your groomers/handlers Silly Clark and Jerry Bootlicher can go to hell and, probably will. Heimlicher wants to live a thousand miles away and still run Colorado Springs, Hell NO!

By the way, your Hunger Meters? The ones we’re supposed to drop coins in rather than give to people on the street? They’re offensive. Really. Jesus said to give, and not spare, and asking no questions. People would occasionally stop me on the street and hand me money. It never went for cigarettes and whiskey and Wild Wild Women. (actual title of a song, google it)

So I took a washer I found in the street, spit a huge loogie all over it and dropped it into one of your meters. So much for your desire to control all alms-giving in town. “Give to the poor, as long as the Wealthy manage the money and the people, for We are Better Than You.” What all else do you tell people, that if they hire somebody who is homeless that he shouldn’t be paid in money?

Or, seeing as your friends think that merely APPEARING to be homeless is just cause for discrimination…

I mean, it’s the next illogical step in your dominance agenda, yes? Go back to your DreamHouse, Barbie.

Questions for Ed and Herb Weinberg to ask Lisa Czeladtko

Herb Weinberg is a retired ABC News reporter. A link to Ed and Herb teleconferencing. Herb suggests taking a list of questions to ask, here’s a few of MINE:
 
Yeah, actually, there’s a cop shop right there at the park. Did she KNOW that the man swearing at the Uncle Wilber fountain was actually homeless, actually schizophrenic, or was she making a snap judgment? Usually it takes a team of behavioral specialists and a Neurologist and an Endocrinologist DAYS to diagnose schizophrenia.

Does she know for certain that he was there for the pizza or just happened to be there?

Does she intend to make the city parks off limits to people based on her Snap Judgments, or worse yet, on the judgment of Neighborhood Vigilantes? Who wouldn’t have all that wonderful educational background she boasts of, where she’s Super Psychiatrist and can judge somebody “guilty” of Schizophrenia based on a momentary observation, THOSE Vigilantes?

I’ve stopped at the same park while riding my bicycle across town to a doctors appointment, to rest a few moments.

I’m in the Autism Spectrum, does that mean I’m guilty of “being mentally unfit” to use public services like the Parks?

Did she make a similar snotty statement about the Deranged TeaBags when they use the same park to shout their screed that people who are poor and disabled should just F. Off And Die?

Or does their Economic Status make their murderous mental illness less dangerous, merely because they’re in a large menacing group?

Does she propose segregating Mentally Ill and other disabled people from “Normals” … “for the safety of the kids, of course” Making the park off limits to anybody who doesn’t pass her Arbitrary Inspections for mental, moral and above all, economic fitness?

If she doesn’t, why the Hell would she even mention it?

Does she propose an ordinance that people who she judges to be mentally unfit should refrain from speaking to the “Normals” at any time, unless they’re spoken to first, and then the only reply acceptable would start with an apology for DARING to offend by being seen by Her Royal Personage?

Our Elitist Friend Beep-beep and the Anti-po’ folk-unholy-Crusade

play in snow aka beep beep Who is leading or at least cheerleading the charge to keep bicyclists from Acacia Park. She wrote in a comment to the Indy that “only ‘the homeless’ have bicycles at Acacia Park”. Which is a huge crock of shit. The Indy didn’t publish it. I don’t know if the Elitist Corporate Suck replied to my answer to that, don’t care either. Fact is, I’ll have MY bicycle at Acacia Park on such occasions as I have to go to either my doctor or my LANDLADY’S doctor and the bus is for one reason or another not an option.
What the Bitch means is “People who make less money than she does, therefore aren’t worthy of the titles and privileges of Citizenship or even those normally accorded to people just for being born Human”. It was in response to the Colorado Springs Gestapo doing sweeps of people having bicycles at the park, which isn’t illegal, rather than people riding their bikes in the park, which is. Apparently, the CS Gestapo have decided that anybody who even LOOKS “homeless” is suspected of being a criminal. “Looking Homeless” of course in the arbitrary decision of the Elitist PIGS. Just like “Looking Mex” gets you stopped, harassed and threatened by the Racist Border Patrol and their equally cowardly and Racist Klan Auxiliary the “minutemen”. Even APPEARING to be Not A Member Of The Privileged Parasite Class is now a punishable offense.
Look poor, go to jail, eh, Janis? Elitist Bitch.

All in the name of Christianity too. I wonder if she’s forming Citizens Committees volunteering to patrol the streets looking for Poor People to harass, threaten or perhaps just beat up and then call the Pigs on us if we fight back, like the Minutemen do to people who “look Mex”.

Full of it, Steeped in it, Stepped in a big stinky pile of it…

The India Laptop slammed by tech sales reporter, because he can’t understand altruism, patriotism or any other motives other than profit. Now, the Capitalist Overlords use Altruistic and Patriotic sentiments as Sales Gimmicks and really, nothing more. Country means exactly the same to them as God, in other words, a way to skin gullible people for a quick buck. Celebrate Christmas, Easter, Seder, Kwanzaa, with a promotional sale. Dutch Boy sticking his finger in a dyke, image is now used to sell paint and (I think) donuts. And haircuts but we won’t go there.
The whole point of the article is that nobody does anything for any other living creature without expecting some reward. Except when Fox bankrolls the TeaParty with wall-to-wall 18 hours a day coverage at no cost. Yes, they’re so good to the American people.
But because the IndiaPad is designed, then unveiled, without marketing strategies like building the factories, (already in existence) training the workers (done that too) and having a half million of the devices ready for sale as soon as the hype period gets to such a frenzy that people are camping outside the Radio Shack or Best Buy for a first chance to buy one.
Such sad empty lives that their money could never fill.

Extolling Patriotism and self-sacrifice when praising a fallen soldier, for instance, so they can lure more unsuspecting fools into enlisting with their eyes all watery and choked up with the emotion. I get the same reaction. It’s a natural human reaction to toxic fumes and the stench of bullshit.

Bill Gates backs up the One-Laptop-per-Child initiative for a couple of reasons. One is it’s tax deductible in every country where he sells his crap. Second is he gets to use the project as a whipping boy, gleefully announcing each setback as positive proof that “Damn the little darkie kids, you need MY piece-of-slop operating system to make it work!” Which would mean the kids would have to spend a C-note apiece for just the software, and $35 an incident to get tech support if WHEN it breaks down.

The editors and backers of the Business Tech website could never understand a nation wanting to build its economy by bringing the poorest up FIRST and then having the money trickle up from there. Instead the kiddoes are supposed to have the money trickle down.
If, as the Capitalist propaganda chiefs assert, “A rising tide lifts all boats” why wouldn’t a rising tide rising from the BOTTOM also lift the Pleasure Yachts of the wealthy?
Don’t they believe their own story if it means the money doesn’t filter through their greedy hands and pockets, if they don’t take their cut FIRST?

The whole idea of Public Education escapes them, only a favored few should be allowed to even learn to Read and Write. Or have disposable income. Much like the very direct and no-bullshit Slave codes which forbade American slaves from learning to read or handle money.

That deal in Huckleberry Finn where Huck gave Jim a counterfeit quarter for a psychic reading? A fake coin for a fake prediction. But there’s more, even without the money being Counterfeit it would be illegal for Jim, a slave, to have money.

The slavers were at least honest enough to say (until the Emancipation Proclamation) that the poorest even having an education posed a security risk for their Corporate Plantation empire. Fast forward a century and a half and they don’t quite say it that way, even thought that’s the upshot of their arguments. They like to keep the public amused with demagogues who pose as “Man of the People” like Sarah, Sam-the-fake-plumber, not-really-Larry-the-actor-who-plays-a-cable-guy, Glenn Beck with his Work Shirts and jeans. About as real “working class” as they were real “war heroes”. They don’t want the people to realize that they’re being treated as disposable slaves who don’t deserve or need education. They need them just doped up enough to where they can incite them into Mob action against those durned old Liberal Elitists who think they can be educated.

The reasoning is the People won’t read the writing on the wall if they’re illiterate to begin with.

So the Government of India, whose one president was a Nuclear Scientist who rose through public education and publicly subsidized College as well from being working caste… is taking the steps to bring their boats to the water, drag them in and make the damn water lift the boats.

Over the objections of Western Corporate Slaves who pretend to be “free agents of a free market”.

It’s interesting, too, that the same argument was made for people like me never getting a modern computer, or that Linux operating system was doomed to fail.

BP SnotMuffin Hayward to be replaced by American Face.

Not the “First Church of Christ” videographer who does the extremely hilarious, poignant and heavily politicized youtubes. Just a CEO who will patch their “Image” problem by putting up a straw-man who “you’d like to have a beer with” type.
The first thought on MY automatically contrarian synaptic apparatus was “IMAGE” Problem? My God, they’ve poisoned the OCEAN, and they’re worried about Bad Publicity? What the HELL are those freaks thinking?

AP, who reported the Face Change Operation, earlier had expressed the notion that Hayward and by extension the entirely blameless BP corporation had been horribly maligned in the U.S. press because of “unfortunate gaffes” made by Hayward.
The HELL they say. The dude is and always will be the True Nature of Mega-Capital expressed in the single persona of One Truly Arrogant Elitist Prick. The “unintended” slurs he made against the American people are the Corporate Mantra about ALL people who aren’t Them.
To be bluntly honest about how he’s not very separate from the rest of the Parasite Class, there’s a Mayflower-Yankee slur that’s pretty all-inclusive, JNOKD as in “Mustn’t play with the Irish/Italian/Puerto Rican/Black/Generally Lower Class children, they’re Just Not OUR Kind, Dear”.

Snobbery is as important an element in the “upper” class level of Capitalism as actually having large amounts of mostly stolen money.

The Local Corporate Sucks who look down at “the Homeless” PEOPLE should realize that their “betters” in the Capitalist Caste System look down their long noses at them and place them so far below their own Exalted Social Elite Stratosphere that the difference would be like that between an ant and a termite.

Would this blatantly condescending publicity gesture wake them the Hell up?

Not bloody likely.
I can’t empirically state, as a certainty, a scientifically proven fact, that it would make any difference if the Elitists actually WERE better than anybody else. One of those things that would be impossible to determine, since their Elite status is purely in their own minds, and worse yet in the minds of their sycophantic Capitalist followers, worshipers, disciples and wannabees.

Doug Bruce on video mouthing off about “illiterate peasants”

When Rivera shot off his own foot saying something similar, at least he wasn't running for Mayor (can't, term limits)
To be fair, the “Illiterate Peasants” he was referencing weren’t the Bus Riding Public who incidentally are the Working Class who support him and the rest of the Parasite Class. They’re seasonal labor Farm Workers who quite literally feed his fat piggy ass and those of his Parasite Class comrades. The ones who, like him, feel that the bus service and the people who ride the bus to WORK, mostly, are extraneous and needn’t be considered. One attitude spills into the other and then back again.
“5000 Illiterate Peasants”, compared to your similar indictments of people riding the bus? When Mayor Rivera said something similar, the “illiterate peasants” with whom I was riding the bus and discussing this same issue (Before the Big Purge of bus service) were a retired lady, with really bad health problems that come from aging, and a SCHOOLTEACHER who is blind from birth. I personally can’t drive because of my neurological problems, similarly, from birth. Mayor Lyin’ el had said that only bums and winos ride the bus. You could tell right there that he wasn’t running for re-election.

Doug Bruce and his accomplices at “Citizens for Accountable Leadership” who aren’t “accountable” enough to put their Leaders Name (Doug Bruce) on their corporate letterhead even as a member of the board, are petitioning for a “strong executive mayoral city government”.

And it’s just a coincidence that Bruce, Former Prosecutor, is rumored to be wanting another run for Mayor.
Of COURSE it’s just a coincidence. Doug Bruce would never lie, unless of course he needs to lie or just wants to lie. Nor would any of his Accomplic errr I mean “Associates” yeah, that’s the ticket, Associates.

By the way, Doug, if somebody is reading this to you… I don’t like cops in any form, especially the Prosecutor type. I feel strongly that as a Prosecutor you would by default have covered many a crime committed “in the line of duty” by your fellow pigs.
Especially as you feel that certain Racist Urge to dismiss whole segments of the people who work to support your system as “Illiterate Peasants” the way you did the farm workers.

And, Brucie-baby, when I was riding the bus that day, Illiterate Peasant schoolteacher was on her way to work, Illiterate Peasant Senior Citizen lady was on her way from one of the Senior Centers which you’re in the process of closing, to her home. SHE was worried because your shadow-government was cutting Saturday bus service off at 5 PM on the route she rides from her home to Church on Saturday evenings. Correction, (damnation, only an ILLITERATE PEASANT could possibly make such an error… RODE the bus to her church services… because you and your Noble, Intellectually Superior Ilk managed to get Saturday bus services cut off completely.)

The third Illiterate Peasant, moi meme sui, who speaks three languages and has a larger English vocabulary than YOU do, was on my way to the doctors office. Many faux literati feel the urge to “incorrect” me on the use of “doctors” instead of “doctor’s” as the possessive of the noun “doctor” but that’s just an error. On their part.

Mr Bruce, I was going to get treatment for an on-the-job injury that has basically left me crippled. Yes, I’m one of those “Illiterate Peasants” who do or rather DID manual labor at slave wages under the Capitalist System you endorse so fervently. And by the way, I have in my extensive Work History actual Farm Labor. Something your porky sorry Parasite ass isn’t going to do unless you’re forced to do it.

The part which crippled me wasn’t the injury itself, severe though it was. No, it was the 14 YEARS of denial of health care by the Corporate Medical System which you also endorse, fervently.

Socialist Subsidized Medicaid saved my Left Foot.
Corporate health “care” protocols and policies completely destroyed my Right foot.

But, in your Fascist Corporate Welfare vision, that makes me a Bum and an “illiterate Peasant”. You say it to one of my comrades, or to 5000 of them, doesn’t matter, it works out the same for me. Your choice too, by the way, because you’ve made similar statements of solidarity with the Police State.

In a way, Mr Bruce, I can almost hope for you to succeed in your endeavours. That way you can further hasten the destruction of your system. Your policies harmed Capitalism much more than any Communist or Anarchist revolutionaries ever could.

I would endorse the further destruction of your system save for one thing… well, let’s call it 5000 things, actually people…. the Bus Riders and Other Working PEOPLE you dismissed as being “Illiterate Peasants”. And every other person of limited means who depends on at least a fragment of Civilization to survive, so they can look out for their own survival.

People like Heather, who unlike YOU or any of your friends, actually WORKS, she’s a waitress at a restaurant which stays open late, across town from our neighborhood. She depends, as does her husband and their three children, on the Bus System being an active running proposition.

In reality, Mr Bruce, so does EVERYBODY in town.
I know, you feel that the PEASANTS in the construction and manufacturing and service and agricultural sectors are disposable and you’d rather do without us. But you can’t, you see. Neither you nor any of your Elitist Pig Comrades possibly could survive.
Oh, I suppose you COULD, if you were to grab enough ambition from God only knows where, and learn how to do Physical Labor for your own benefit.

Funny how the “Elitists” really aren’t all that “Elite”.
Too bad your “elite” friend Nozolino isn’t actually going to be in a Real Penitentiary for your shared crimes. Then he could spout off about how much better he feels himself to be to Working Class people all day long… or really, only as long as it takes for him to piss off one of them, JUST ENOUGH for the Real Worker to decide to teach him a few Physical lessons on “superiority” and “elitist doctrine”.

He and you might just get such a lesson delivered on the Outside, though. And your Pig comrades in the C.S. Gestapo Department won’t be able to protect you. Nor will your “friend” with the closet homo-erotic Gun Fetish.

“yeah, get out of the car… bring your guns, we’ll take them too”.
Anger isn’t an entirely unproductive and useless emotion.

Sometimes it can be channeled to the end of removing useless Parasites like yourself from any position where you might Screw Up our society any more than you already have.

Tea-Potty successfully test-fire Dumb Bomb, counters “Smart Bombs” nicely.

Remember the infamous Speech boycotted by whole School Districts including D-11 locally? The Hoam Skule parents, aided and abetted by the Tea-Party, in turn organized and funded by Fox News, combined to convince themselves that Education Is Satanic.
Frightened Tea-Baggers kept their kids from hearing the Zombie-Brainwashing message that educational excellence is a good thing.
In doing so, they set up a series of events that has led to among other school districts the Kansas City MO ISD closing half their schools, school closings are the Drug of Choice for the “conservatives” because quite simply, the only way they can hold any kind of political power is to Keep the People Ignorant. They remind me of the “Gone Tertiary” mobs in the movie “Omega Man”, led by a former (until they burned down every radio and TV station as “evil”) Rush Limbaugh think-alike named Matthias. With their torches and robes, burning down schools, libraries, museums, any form of culture and education, chanting “Evil! Evil! Evil! Evil!”
BUT… there is a bright side to this. As painful as it seems, they’re tearing their own Empire down. Already, after 8 years of Bush junior and 12 years of the Reagan/Bush Regime breaking down American Public Education into a 12 year Political Indoctrination session for each kiddo, the Pentagoons report that American kids who they wanted to recruit into the Murder Machine, aren’t qualified for it anymore.

They’re too fat, too lazy and too damn dumb.

The Fox OUTRAGE! Nation has dumbed itself into a corner. They want world-wide power, but the people they were counting on doing their fighting for them, (Because let’s face it, the NeoCons ain’t ever going to fight for their own gain, they have always counted on Other People to be stupid enough to do it for them and always will) got the necessary Political Indoctrination, where they’re Stupid Enough to believe that they’d be “fighting for Freedom”…

But it came at a price, they’re also too stupid to operate advanced weaponry. And fat and lazy. This according to the Pentagon.

It’s a major OOPSIE!! moment for the Right WingNuts. And that damage was accomplished BEFORE the mass hysteria inflamed by the Fox Propagandists. “Evil! Evil! Evil! Evil! Evil! Evil! Evil! Evil! ” They’ll drag American War Technology so low that they’ll never again be beaten down by Small Third World Nations like North Korea, VietNam, and Somalia. Because they’ll be too stupid to find their way over there and wouldn’t have enough High-Tech weaponry to make them feel safe enough to start the wars in the first place.

No more being humiliated by Barefoot Armies.

Looking down on petty usefulness

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart died on this day in 1791 at the age of forty-five — allegedly at the hands of friend and fellow composer Antonio Salieri — while composing his final work, the Requiem. . .
Mozart-unfinished-Requiem 
If only everyone could feel the power
Of harmony like you! But no, for then
The world could not exist; no one would want
To spend time taking care of life’s low needs;
All would be given over to free art.
We are but few, we chosen, happy idlers
Who look disdainfully at petty usefulness
And form a priesthood serving only beauty.
Isn’t that so? But now I feel unwell. . . .

    -Mozart, moments before his death, in Aleksandr Pushkin’s play Mozart and Salieri.
