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 of the world for their own profit, if those plans come to fruit then I and ever other like me will also die of our injuries.
It’s a big issue in the Occupy Wall Street and Occupy Main Street movement. The Chinese had an epiphany more than a century ago when the Emperor Pu Yi demonstrated his willingness to sell China to the same Corporate Interests who are running Wall Street and Washington DC and Denver and Colorado Springs today.
And FOX News celebrates and promotes Corporate Fascism and promotes Blankenship as a Hero.
So I had to go to an SSI hearing today, and there was a big screen in the lobby of the Bank building where the Social Security Administrative Law office is. DumFox Noose blaring, the president of TeaParty Express whining and sniveling about an allegation that somebody on the left made a violent reference to the TeaBags. Mind you, these are the same group who, even before they started calling themselves their current name, incited acts of violence which were carried out against Americans in many places, such as the Universalist Church in Knoxville, where Adkisson tried to open fire on the AMERICAN kids in the congregation, the Flores family home in Arivaca AZ where their Minuteman Comrades slaughtered amongst others a 9 year old AMERICAN girl, their Comrade Laughner opening fire on a congresswoman, a judge and among others a 9 year old AMERICAN girl…The Holocaust Museum, same thing, taking aim at the AMERICAN children… there’s a clear pattern there. Not just the babykilling and attempted babykilling, but these “targets” were identified, over and over and over and over again by their Fox Noose and other Hate Speech outlets. Then the “unaffiliated crazed lone wolf social misfit” comrades opened fire on them and left their shooters’ manifestos pointing out that they were doing these deeds because the Haters at Fox told them to do it.
And they never seem to run out of Lone Wolf Social Misfit Lunatics either. Got themselves an endless supply…
There’s a Bumper sticker out that says “My ancestors immigrated LEGALLY.” Horse Shit. The only way that would be true is if Might Makes Right were an actual legal concept. The German takeover of Europe in the 30s and early 40s would be totally justified under the same doctrine that every square inch of American Soil under European dominion is “Legal”.
I’ve got Irish ancestors who came over with Lord Baltimore. Scots who got kicked out of Scotland to the penal colonies in Georgia. French who got kicked out of Acadia (now called Nova Scotia) when the British took over the management of Canada. Nobody in all of that asked ANY American permission to come over, plant the flag of whatever rinky-dinky king who kicked their asses out of Europe and just take over, and shoot anybody who objected and didn’t manage to get in the first shot.
One theory of Indian migration has it that the Creek Nations, Muscogee, Cherokee, Choctaw, Chikasha and Seminole, (more like swamp nations) who make up presumably all of my non-white ancestors, came from Central America about 1200 years ago.
So, the questions are, did you have an ancestor on the Mayflower? And if you did, who cares? The Pilgrims had their troubles in Europe, true, and sailed west about three days ahead of the lynch mob.
That’s hardly a declaration from God that they were entitled to establish an English Empire, though. The Massaquoit Indians made peace with them, taught them how to fish, hunt, farm… tried to teach them how to bathe regularly but they had some sort of English superstition so it didn’t catch on for a very long time.
In return, the English settlers gave them a couple of Thanksgiving dinners and an eviction notice.
Not exactly “legal immigration”.
There’s a Joan Baez song with the lyrics:
“just take what you need and leave the rest
but they never should have Taken, the very best…”
With the Mayflower Compact they took not only the “very best” they took every damn thing else as well.
I have this technique I learned a long time ago involving a half-brick or some similar sized object and a variation on baseball pitching. I’m not a professional at it or for that matter the most skilled individual at doing it.
What will happen, sir, is you’ll be all cocky and feeling a little less like a frightened little boy, or maybe not, a full auto security blanket really doesn’t cure cowardice….
And somebody is going to pop from behind a wall or a tree right behind and tear the back of your mufu skull off with one throw. Then he’ll have your rifle,, all those expensive clips full of expensive ammo (a couple of 30 round banana clips, fully loaded, could conceivably cost more than the rifle itself) and he or she is already a far more skilled warrior than your loser-ass militia buddies.
Just, you know, sayin’ is all.
Good luck with your corporate sponsored Ass-roots “revolution”.
By the time the real warrior is searching your cooling remains for more ammo, money, etc… you won’t be needing any of it anyway.
But somebody who fights back, maybe stops the Killer Kop Klansman from murdering him, would still do a life sentence upon capture and conviction, for “aggravated Assault”.
Pigs get to kill anybody they please.
This right on the heels of Alabama, another Historically Racist State, being put on Minority Lockdown status with a Racial Profiling “show your papers” Law.
The punk-ass Minutemen and other Klan groups say it’s not racism, they lie about a lot of other stuff too, so no change there.
They’re not merely Racists, liars for saying their not Racists, but also Cowards because they’re afraid their racist actions might be rightfully perceived as the Racism it truly is.
So, next they’ll be able to demand of any person who isn’t Mr John Q LilyWhite to prove, to their irrational hate filled satisfaction, that he’s legally a citizen.
Or, they’ll just force him to the sidewalk, put a gun in his back and draw the trigger, and if anybody ever prosecutes them for it they’ll get the minimum sentence for “involuntary” MAN slaughter. Just like their Koward Kop Klansman in Oakland.
Way to slant a headline! “State initiatives to stem immigration fizzle in the face of Federal inaction.” How about reporting it like this?
“Racist State Legislators, in the face of opposition from Mainstream Americans, who would be the REAL targets of their Racial Profiling initiatives, even with massive funding from Nazi organizations like News Corp and Freedom Corporation (Channel 5 news, the Gazette…) and their Corporate Overlords, despite Nazi-Klan related heavily subsidized “grass roots” organizations such as the TeaParty and Minutemen, with all that expensive and highly organized firepower, still failed to force their Racist Agenda on the states the same way they FAILED to do so on the Federal Government” Oooh, I bet that stings. When you call yourselves non-racist but want to profile people, most of whom are United States Citizens, based on their appearance of belonging to heavily stereotyped and demonized ethnic, social or religious groups?
In a measure not just skirting state constitution, but directly contravening it, the Anti-Workers Rights law was published Friday. Not even bothering anymore to hide their vicious agenda to deprive workers of freedom.
The only “right” workers will have is to work. At whatever wage the Big Pig Parasite Class decides is enough for them to survive on, even if it’s far less than what it costs US to produce our labor.
The Greedy-ass Rich Bitch corporate overlords would refuse to make less than a 20% annual profit, yet WE, the workers who put the money in THEIR pockets to begin with, are not allowed to decide what a fair profit for OUR labor, OUR product, would be.
Nor even to decide for ourselves what “breaking even” would be, THEIR thieving Corporate Accountants and Corporate Attorneys will tell us and if we object, what?
The traditional method for them to punish workers for being so “uppity” as to think of ourselves as Human Beings with rights, is to order THEIR Pigs to arrest us and THEIR so-called “justice” system to Imprison us, forcing US to work for THEIR corporations without any pay. If we object any further, they have THEIR Torture-freak “corrections” officers murder us behind walls, conveniently where the only witnesses will be Their Fellow Pigs.
Just a coincidence, then, that the PIG governor of Wisconsin exempted cops and “corrections” Slaves from bargaining limitations? Until he can figure a way to screw them as well.
Eat the Rich. We’ve fed the porky bastards long enough, it’s time for them to start feeding US.
Their Whoremasters like Sarah Palin and the rest of the DumFox crew still refuse to admit that they urge people to KILL (they have to have other people do it because they’re too frightened to murder people themselves). Usually it’s male wannabee hitmen like Jared Loughner, Jim Adkisson, von Brunn, Scott Roeder, Tim McVeigh, Terry Nichols, Erik Rudolf, Local Retard Gary Faulkner and the occasional physically female like Babykiller Shawna Forde, and they have a few other things in common.
They’re usually part of local cults, not exactly “lone wolf” like the Right Wing Hate Media claim. They usually go after people they consider weaklings. And they perceive their Fox News Whoremasters to be speaking literally when they rant and rave and foam at the mouth about a “War” against any form of Non-Fox Thought. Like Sarah Palin urging her demented Disciple Jared Loughner to murder 6 people in Tucson. Lou Dobbs urging Shawna Forde and her crew to Murder (yet another) nine year old American Child. If Gary Faulkner had succeeded in killing some Pakistan citizens, most likely including children, in his Rambo-inspired fantasy quest to take out the ALREADY DEAD Osama bin Laden, who among the Hate-Mongers would take the credit for sending yet another Hate-Filled Wannabee Holy Warrior/Crusader to MURDER HUMAN BEINGS for their political agenda?
The Freakin’ Bureau of Incompetence practically admitted that bin Laden is dead. They published a “wanted poster” that had Somebody Else As The Picture and said as their excuse that nobody has any verified pictures of Osama bin Laden since 2002. So how would the dumbass even know if the Fellow Child Of God who he would end up murdering was actually bin Laden?
The R’s don’t want people to vote. More people politically active, means they lose. Very simple.
While she was speaking… she had a 71 year old Former CIA analyst BEATEN by Capitol Pigs for “heckling” her… not by screaming denunciations, but by quietly standing up and turning his back on her LIES. Like Sarah Palin having people beaten and arrested for not sitting down and not shutting up while she was lying HER ass off about “don’t sit down and don’t shut up” You must to sit quietly while the Fuhrer speaks, then applaud at appropriate moments! Alle Sieg HEIL!
The first to come to trial over the murder of Raul and Briseña Flores.
Briseña was 9 years old. Begged for her fathers life, then her own… IN ENGLISH. Yeah, Minute-pukes, Tea-Potties, she was an American child. Shawna Forde, the leader of the merry band of murderers, her hearing began yesterday.
The FBI reported that some of her companions had actually dropped a dime on her, BEFORE the Flores double-murder. About her plans to fund her Hate Group, just one of a web of Hate Groups in the American “conservative” movement, through robbery and murder. The Freakin’ Bureaucratic Idiots didn’t believe such piffle. Until Briseña was murdered, pleading for her life and those of her parents. Why do the Right Wing hate American Children? Really children in general, they’re the one group that suffers most in any war.
Maybe they, themselves, had unhappy childhoods and want to pass the abuse along.
This story is from the Yakima Herald: “YAKIMA, Wash. — Wyatt McNulty was listening to country music and waiting for a friend in the parking lot of the Social Security Administration building Monday morning when the magazine popped out of the gun concealed in his waistband.” OK, that’s the setup. For clarity, here’s a synopsis of the story. So, the gun he says he keeps unloaded but had a clip in it, he drops the clip.. then reloads…In front of a Federal Building. He’s “like, what the heck?” that people would be frightened by a redneck, listening to Country Music in a pickup and packing
unloaded heat at a Federal Building… or why anybody would call in armed reinforcements when they observe somebody popping a clip into an automatic weapon… Hello? Don’t the words Waco, Oklahoma City, Tucson, Lone Wolf “misfits” conjure up ANY images, any thoughts in that massive airspace between your brain and your ears?
No, really, the ex-dictator is back. Maybe he’s hoping to steal some more, only this time there’s no Haitian money to take.
Perhaps from the international aid to Haiti? Negotiate a deal for a U.S. air base perhaps? Of course in the middle of a rigged election where, just like in Afghanistan and Iraq, there are U.S. soldiers at the polls with machine guns to
make sure nobody votes for an unapproved candidate. keep order.
And what of his private goon-squad “police” Les Tontons Macoutes? (French for eater of fools, a boogieman figure)
Just when you thought that ALL the roaches had crawled out of their cracks in the wall on this…
Now, what do you suppose would happen if another group, say a more left-leaning group, wanted to give the American Child the Right Wing murdered an Honor Guard? Showed up to give like Military Honors to Christina Green, age 9, in a non-intrusive ceremony, with a 21-gun salute (actually, 7 rifles fired simultaneously three times) And let’s then say that one of the Honor Guard became so Unhinged at the massive hatred spewing from the Godless Lips of Pastor Phred? And, as soldiers often do, takes aim….
A couple of linked together “patriot” and “minutemen” websites said “Mexicans launch missile off California coast.”
Nice racist touch, there, Bubbas!
They weren’t accusing the government of Mexico, either, just “mexicans” as in “anybody with swarthy skin and a Spanish surname/accent” This mirrors Lou Dobbs preposterous statements on the same websites and similar ones, that “mexicans” had shot his house while he wasn’t home, no witnesses, and no suspects. If they don’t know who if anybody did it, how would he know it was “mexicans”? There’s a lot of people who don’t like his racist bullshit. Cops aren’t investigating it as a shooting, just a “report”.
Then there’s the notion that Obama rigged the missile launch “accident” as part of a Socialist plot to disarm. Yeah, right.
First, O Stupid ones, Obama couldn’t pass for Socialist even compared to Republicans. Or some hippie peacenik, I mean, come the hell on, military spending and hostilities have INCREASED, which should delight the ChickenHawk squadron no end, but apparently not.
The only accurate observation they’ve made so far is that he’s darker skinned than Bush. Gee, nothing racist about that.
Then, there’s the “North Korean Submarine” angle, which would make sense, American warships have been test firing missiles in “international” waters just off the coasts of China and N. Korea, but only in a non-provocative way. If it WAS then what the Hell special right do the DumFoxer chumps have to get their knickers in a knot about some other Sovereign Nation running a missile test in international waters.
We have a far greater right to resist either the Minutemen or the actually Deputized Racists like Sheriff Arpaio or the Border Patrol, with force of deadly arms if necessary, simply because they have already demonstrated their willingness to assault, either through arrest and then beating us (while we’re bound and caged, Arpaio’s favorite way of “fighting”) all the way up to outright Murder as in the case of the Flores Family, including 9 year old AMERICAN child Briseña, which their heroes in the Minutemen and Border Patrol and Arizona State Police and even a recent candidate for Governor of Colorado, Tancredo, are trying to help the murderers justify by claiming that Raul Flores, who is already dead and can’t answer any of the charges, was “suspected” of being involved in drugs.
When Tony posted nearly three years ago (!) about how shocking conditions in Haiti had become, it was a magnet for people saying the starving kids pictures (from Medicins sans frontiers, internationally respected medical aid agency, just not so much here in America) were recycled pictures from Ethiopia 3, 2 and one decade ago.
Then when that was refuted, and before they raised that Stupid Response again, the people of Haiti were blamed for their own misfortunes. As though their LEADERS had actually been empowered by popular vote instead of installed, against the expressed will of the People, by and for the profit of American Corporate Hegemony. Alternating with French Hegemony until the AmeriCorp bought out the French.
We broke it, we supposedly bought it, right? That’s the one of the irRationale for staying in Iraq and Afghanistan.
(rationale is both plural and single, I checked, you didn’t, kiss off) Of course, it’s not the American Corporations who are Paying the bills “we” ran up by breaking all the pottery, although they seem to be getting quite a lot of public funding to manipulate the Public Army and the Public intelligence community and the public “rebuilding” campaign, which mostly consists of taking very expensive videos and photographs of Other People moving the shards around.
Much the same way they’re paid to watch and take pictures while other people bury the Dead “shards” in Haiti. Through public funding for their private “efforts”.
It instead leeches off Tax-supported Publicly paid enterprises like the Army and Police agencies, not coincidentally the only agencies they want to be continued to have Public Funding…Allow the wealthiest to not pay taxes on money they obtained through blatantly aggressive Government Interventions in the so-called “free” markets by using publicly funded Soldiers to take over any of the competing trade partnerships aka “Sovereign Nations” by extreme violence or the threat thereof.
… and the “U.S.” Chamber of Commerce is opposed to Undocumented Workers unless they can really exploit them heavily, and use their presence to exploit the OTHER American Workers, Why then has the Chamber been accepting and funneling into congressional races HUGE amounts of campaign contributions from Corporations in Bahrain, Turkey, Israel (of course) Saudi Arabia, China (both), Japan, South Korea, VietNam, India, Thailand, The U.A.E., Egypt, Russia, and just anywhere else in the world that Corporate “leaders” like WalMart and Halliburton and McDonalds can exploit the workers, at a cost of American jobs,
Contributions to Fascist Freaks like Ken Buck, Tom Tancredo, Dan Maes, Owen Hill, Pete Lee, all of the Foreign Job-Sucking Corporate Cash being used to buy expensively designed, printed and mailed flyers, campaign tours, radio and television attack ads and legions of chirpy phone bank “Volunteers” who will assure us that it’s Democrats, and ONLY Democrats, who caused the Republican Wall Street Bankers, the Corporate Insurance Death Panels, and of course Offshoring of American Jobs, twisted their Republican Corporate Whore Arms to use all these tools to build a Corporate Fascism in American and foreign politics and to crash the economy of the world, America, and Colorado. These are the same smarmy Corporate sucks who screamed loudly their FOX news propagated OUTRAGE! when the New York Times gave a discount to MoveOn.org on a newspaper advertisement critical of George W Bush.
And also said repeatedly, loudly, ANGRILY, that any criticism of George W Bush in the media would be a de-facto contribution to the Democratic National Committee. What a bunch of Lying Hypocritical Pukes.
Nothing new there.
Why is Lou Dobbs considered an “expert” on Immigration, but not Colbert? Now they’re barking because Colbert testified in Congress as an “expert witness”. And say that his only expertise was that he’s a “Celebrity” Say whut? The problem they’re having with his expertise isn’t the shock to the senses that your first day of Field Labor is to ANYBODY. (It’s why the Founding Fathers “hired” slaves to do it for them, because let’s face it, if George Washington or Madison or Jefferson had to go out and cut their own damn tobacco and sugar cane (cotton wasn’t a cash crop until later) they would have starved. Labor built the fortunes of the “Founding Fathers” the same way Labor builds the fortunes of the Capitalists today.) But they’re claiming that his “expert” status was somehow due to his status as a Celebrity. So, what now, do they stop listening to that stupid John Wayne Record about how honorable it is to join the Army, travel to exotic places, meet interesting people, and Kill Them?
That’s right, folks, according to the PA Homeland Security Privatized Terror Alert System, National Burn The Confederate Flag Day, a protest against the TeaTard Racist “patriot” party, is an act of Terrorism. Meanwhile the TeaTards inciting Mosque Burning, Scripture Burning, Assaults and even Murders on behalf of their Racial Purist Agenda, doesn’t raise a red “flag” with the Private Pig Group.
Are going to go to… people who already work for the oil companies and the Military Industrial Complex. The (God this is a stupid term) Surge in employment is of the trickle down variety. Like the ghost of Reagan pissing on us in death the way he did in life.
Let’s dissect the Oil Jobs, yes? They’ve got a bunch of unemployed oil people. Fewer and fewer wells, more and more people who have experience and tenure, no need for Halliburton or BP to train people locally. We’ll get jobs like More McDonalds, or Workin’ at the Car Wash Blues, oh, and the oil and Military Industrial folks will bring their families so a portion of the New Jobs will be eaten up by them.
Then there’s what they’ll be DOING. In the early 70s they tried this same shit, there were about a third as many people in the area, and still a water crisis. Since the Springs area feeds the watersheds that provide water to every where west of the Mississippi, that’s a huge responsibility. Every drop of rain that falls here is already claimed a year or more in advance.
The Shale Oil extraction process takes up a lot of fresh water. huge amounts. More than is actually available even without the water demands of the local population. Which is a lot more people now. So they’re going to bring in more people, add fewer jobs than they take up, and less water.
The ones pushing this political boondoggle, this government giveaway, yet another one…
Halliburton and BP.
With a courtesy tip o’ the fedora to somebody who calls himself “israel fucking rules” (what is that, a neo-nazi porn site, telling us how to have sex Israeli style? You know, their sex rules…) Dudes, I know you can’t read really fast so I’ll write this really slowly.
Warmongering is a very bad thing. Israel does Warmongering. That means, and I am sure you didn’t learn this in the Hoam Skewl books, they sell war. Literally. Not every Israeli and really not even most. We know this because we weren’t Hoam Skewled. We learned such Intelekshul stuff like Math. I was going to write Mathematics but y’all are only semi-literate so I had to shorten it. The Leader of the Israeli branch of the Bank of Blood Money, Benjamin Netanyahu, who also has Messianic dreams, didn’t get even 30% of the vote in their last elections and had to team up with other Right Wing Freak candidates to get a bigger Minority than the other Minority coalitions. For those of our visitors who are Hoam Skewled, that means he personally got less than three out of every ten votes. I had to keep it under ten because otherwise you would have to take off your boots to figure it out.
But of course it’s not “racist” to give known Klan-affiliated PIG groups like the Arizona cops the power to arrest people who can’t produce proof of citizenship, based solely on the appearance of the people being arrested. The Border Patrol has harrassed me on several occasions, sometimes at Gunpoint, for the “crime” of “looking mex” but of course, the Racist Arizona (and soon, the Racist Colorado) Pigs would somehow forbear from arresting people for “looking mex”, even though the ordinance specifically states that they can do so any time their Piggy little hearts desire.
Even though they’ve been given a license and a mandate to do exactly Racial and Ethnic profiling. “Play nice with your new gun, son, and don’t go shooting up the neighborhood like you did last time.”
