36 Gigabucks in fraud? Dig harder or dig in another place…

Cause there's a much more massive gap between what was reported to us as the cost of the war as late as oh. let me see... Last Week, where the cost of the War on An Amorphous Emotion Peopled By Shadowy Dark Skinned People In Far Corners of The Empire was "set" at being somewhere more than a Trillion dollars.... and the amount that doesn't seem to be accounted for. Which is estimated at between 5 and 8 trillion. How does 8 Trillion anything just up and piss-a-deer? I published an analogy of what a trillion dead mosquitoes would look like in one place, it would be a hill of mosquito meat about as tall as the Capitol Dome. Perhaps one reason the money is "unaccounted" is because the accountants work for the Thieves. Such as one Richard Cheney, who recently as in a couple of days ago did another interview on NBC. Regarding him being not responsible for the massacre of the poor known as the "response to Hurricane Katrina". Irresponsible? yes. NOT responsible? Hell to the no. His company, Halliburton, from which he didn't divest at all when he became the President of Vice, took the greatest share of the funds sent into the Magic Hole Which Makes Money Disappear. Using no-bid contracts administered by... Vice President Richard Cheney. Halliburton, by the way, is a company organized strictly for theft. It's what they do and they're very good at it. I know using the word "good" while describing that particular nest of snakes (my appologies to real snakes and other reptiles) makes it Instant Oxymoron, but that's one of the gaping holes in the Modern English Language. They have sucked America dry and built themselves a private island resort off the coast of Dubai, UAE. Let's break momentarily from Trashing The Trash, in other words talking smack about the thieves, and remind our audience what the term Trillion means as opposed to Billion. When you multiply anything by a thousand, that's when the name changes. "Mil" as in million means "a thousand" and in that case means a thousand times a thousand. A Billion is a thousand times a Million. A Trillion is a 1,000 x 1,000, x 1,000 x 1,000. A thousand times a billion, A MILLION millions. Bill Gates had at one time 80 billion dollars in his personal stash, that's less than 1% of a trillion. And approximately 5 trillion is missing. The largest circulating bill in U.S. currency is the $100. Each weighs a gram. It takes ten kilograms of $100 bills to make a million dollars, and that's the smallest physical pile of currency that would possibly make a million dollars. It wouldn't be like in the movies where somebody carries a briefcase full of money and it's valued, for the sake of poetic license, as ten million bucks. Not so. Ten million would weigh about what I do, 220 pounds. You would need a suitcase so big you would have to check it at the airport, not carry on luggage,

The Tsar, his Sow & their Nasty Piglets “sainted”

Were declared Saints in the Russian Orthodox Church at their births on the basis of where and to whom they were born. Other "saints" in their family were murdered by yet other "saints" in order for the Former to be supplanted by the Latter. The manner of the deaths of the Tsar, his Sow and their Nasty Piglets is somehow seen to justify their crimes and the crimes of their friends, family and their Hired Thug Cossacks. Even though their deaths mirrored the deaths they imposed on the Workers of Russia. The ones they literally OWNED. Their Cossacks had enacted the Tsar's Death Scene countless times before, dragged the peasants from their slave-quarters and murdered them, man, woman and child, often beating them to death with whips and clubs. "Peasants" meaning, property, Old French for "of the land" same as the Spanish/Italian "paisano", when the land was sold or inherited, so were the Peasants. "Uncounted" literally, because their lives from birth to death were merely the Property of the Rich. The Saintly Tsar and his Sow and their Demon Spawn piglets were repaid in exactly the same coin with which they "rewarded" their chattel-slaves for their lifetimes of enforced service. They were in fact repaid far less than they dished out. They weren't robbed, raped, brutalized and worked to death in the fields and mines and later foundries of a conceited band of Murderers and Thieves who had the blessing of the Russian Orthodox CHURCH on all their misdeeds. A Free Ticket to Heaven no matter how Satanic the nature of their lives. The Disney movie "Anastasia" celebrated the life of one of his Demon Spawn piglets, a Fairy Tale existence where the lovely and of course, Saintly Anastasia and her family had everything they wanted, the servants of the Fairy Tale Family of Saints never depicted with their shirts off, to display the scars from the whips. Her cousins at the Royal Balls, in their splendid uniforms, never showing the horrors of life for the conscript peasant Soldiers they OWNED and sent, by the hundreds, thousands, millions, to their deaths in wars where they slaughtered Other Peasants to seize the resources needed to support the Fairy Tale world of the Tsar, his Sow and their Piglets. The movies, there were quite a few, revolved around the notion that Anastasia had escaped. She died along with her family, got the repayment in the same coin with which they paid their Chattel-slave Property. It would have been the exact coin if they had been worked almost to death in the fields and mines and foundries, then dragged from their homes and shot for being "uppity". But the Russian Orthodox Church insists they're saints.

Russian Airport reaction: From the reactionaries.

Which in their customary thought processes, comes out as confusion. For a long while they've been vacillating, our Dearest Redneck Leaders that is. They praise the Putin-Medvedev-KGB response to the theatre hostage situation, where they killed civilians to get at the terrorists, then a school with the same methods, same results... In response to REAL Caucasians who formerly had, until being rolled over by the Russians under the Tsars and kept a part of Russia under the Soviets and still are, much like the much booed Soviet takeover in Afghanistan which mirrors the Current NATO takeover, Where "our" current enemies were THEIR enemies... they had been sovereign nations. Then the Right Wing Reactionaries condemn the Russian government for being simultaneously too lenient and too hard-line. WTF? How Hard-Core Repressive Does One Have To Be To Satisfy These Jackasses? This attack occurred in the waiting area where people were queued up waiting to be poked, prodded, stripped, x-rayed and fondled by the Russian equivalent of TSA. So what next, what levels of "security" will suffice? a buffer zone around the buffer zone? Having to hire extra uniformed thugs to staff the new protocol and the buffer zones that will expand ever outward around them? A perpetually replicating concentric circle, what happens when the borders of the safety zone collide with the borders of other safety zones, do the uniformed thugs declare inter-agency war on each other? All that extra staffing, they'll need to hire extra Security Screen personnel to do background checks on the New Hires. And of course constantly monitor them. Spies to keep track of the other spies. If I were to write a computer program that does the same thing it would take all the space in each infected computer in a matter of hours. Trillions of bytes of replicated, duplicated effort. And this in the post-Capitalist economy wherein Ponzi Capitalism crashed and burned. Again. Perhaps in its final death throes. You on the Capitalist side of the argument, you can't afford the security measures that would make your stolen gold and stolen oil safe. You don't have enough money and guess what? Your usual method of securing extra capital, Conquest? ain't going to work either because you've already stolen all the money in the world. There's nothing left for you to steal. Now for the REALLY sad part. Remember World War One? Well, unless you're about a hundred and twenty years old you probably don't. But World War One was BEFORE there were any socialist economies active. All the belligerent parties were Capitalists who banked in the same system. And they ran into essentially the same problem, all the resources were locked into either your own account, or those of competing corporations nations. No new capital to sustain the unsustainable. Money borrowed from people who had in turn borrowed. No principal left, just an upward spiral of increasing interest. What are Bloated Capitalist Big-pigs to do in such a scenario? Exactly what they did in 1914, mobilize their hordes of Peasants to march off and slaughter

Violent fight, unholy sight, Machine gun fire lights the night…

screams of the wounded men, writhing in pain. Details work day and night burying the slain.. all their murders done in Christ's Holy Name, Jesus looks down, and He weeps... Jesus looks down and He weeps. Ok, so that story bugs me every year, they tell it ad nauseum, about the British and Germans taking a couple of hours break from slaughtering each other, in the name of God, at the battle of the Somme. From the German trenches comes the melody "Stillich Nacht, Heilig nacht" Then some Tommies in their trenches start singing it in English, more Germans and more Englischers join in... An impromptu Christmas party just congeals in the middle of No Man's Land. They sing songs, exchange gifts, show pictures of their families to one another... And then go right back to slaughtering each other. As you may have guessed, it's time for my annual Christmas on War uncelebration. I go to fetch my e-mail, there's a flash animation of a black Jeep SUK involved in a battle, a dual advertisement because they're also hawking a video "game" called Call of Duty - BlackOps. where the mission apparently is to go in and assassinate as many locals as possible and kidnap their leaders to take them to a CIA dungeon for torture. It's made into a Triple Offense because they're hawking the SUV and the game, As Christmas Presents Happy birthday to the Prince of Peace. Other war toys and Murder Fantasy movies and video games dominate the Must-have list for the Red-suit Elf and his flying reindeer to bring to your kids. The money changers have bought out the Temple and have reduced Christ to just another sales gimmick. What next, have that lizard from the car insurance commercial lying in a manger? and the DumFox Noose Nutwerx is still piling on their bullshit about a "War on Christmas". While following the marketing trend of having soldiers, in foreign countries to kill the citizens of those lands and take the resources of those lands, send "home" video Christmas greetings from Outer VietRaquiStan, as part of the heartwarming Christmas commercials showing people engaged in Traditional Christmas activities like unwrapping the Monster-Huge Screen TeeVee and other gifts too expensive for the regular American to buy. Merry freakin' Cashmas Christless Crassness

While the rest of the world celebrates Armistice Day…

We have Veterans Day, or, as I like to put it, "your recruiter lied to you and society used your entire childhood to condition you to accept that, so to make up for getting screwed like that we'll have a postal holiday and a parade for you". Just, you know, don't actually expect those benefits they promised you BEFORE you signed the enlistment or induction papers, and try to keep in mind as every politician with access to a microphone is praising your decision to "serve the country", that the renaming of the day as Veterans Day was a deliberate ploy to try to ease the sting of the use of United States soldiers, led by Doug McArthur, Dwight Eisenhower and Patton, to fire on an encampment, daily parade and daily petition to President Hoover to actually honor the promised benefits to Spanish War and World War 1 veterans. Instead Hoover gave their pensions to Investment Bankers, like his party and their TeaBag affiliates are promising to do AGAIN, only now they've got Social Security to give to the Investment Bankers along with them. They've also got enough RepubliFascists who ran under the false flag of Democracy selling your benefits to the Banksters under the equally false flag of "Bipartisanship". But, you're supposed, under the agenda set by these Thieving Murdering Bastards, to remember your fallen comrades... instead of remembering your LIVING Comrades, and yourselves, and your families, who are getting bent over the Proverbial Sink and preparing to be ass-raped by the Thieves once again.

Of thee I Billy Sing

OK, so that was the stupidest title. But the real story is even more stupid.   Australian TV producers were casting for a TeleDocumentary TV series "The Legend of Billy Sing" about a Chinese-Australian soldier who is lauded as a hero of Gallipoli. One of the Stupidest military campaigns in history, and that says much. Billy Sing was called the "Suvla Assassin" because he was apparently single-handedly responsible for the deaths of 200 Turkish soldiers. Imagine an Australian version of Sgt York, (every time I see some of this jingoistic crap I think of the film that didn't-quite-star-John Lennon, he had a supporting role, "How I Won The War".) but instead of Sgt Alvin York being portrayed by whoever the hell played him he was played and cast as say, an English or French or whoever Recent Immigrant instead of a hillbilly from the Cumberland Gap, imagine how well that would play in Tennessee. So, Billy Sing, cultural folk hero to all Chinese-Australians, in the Television Drama, is being cast and played not as an Asian, but as a Caucasian. Read the quote from the director: The director, Geoff Davis, actually picked his son, Josh, to play the role, and defended the decision by saying that he could not find a 60-year-old Chinese actor to play Billy Sing's father SAY WHAT? How far did that freak peckerhead peckerwood look? Even in MEXICO you could find Ethnic Chinese neighborhoods. Far less Australia, which shares a large stretch of ocean with China. If nothing else, he could have gone to Goddamn Hong Kong, the Chinese answer to Hollywood, and I bet he would have found thousands of 60-year old Chinese actors with the necessary screen credentials AND probably a better command of the Queens English than he has. And since it's Chinese Australians, what, did all the Chinese Australians sign some kind of pact to just freakin' disappear before turning 60? The dude is playing Nannie Nannie Boo Boo Stick your head in Doo Doo with every non-white Australian. "Hey, guys, we realize your culture was extant and fully developed, socially, economically, scientifically and even had a Written Language and advanced mathematics, back before the English stopped painting themselves blue, and lighting their hair on fire when they went into battle, naked... But gosh-darn it, we need a Hero from OUR much superior Culture. Not that we think YOURS is inferior, mind you, it's just that, well, we're racially and culturally better than you". I'm not a big fan of Jingoism rally-round-the-flag-boys Military Propaganda, and if Winston Churchill had been half the Gentleman he pretended to be, he wouldn't have taken a Field Officers command subsequent to resigning from the Flag Rank he had held, but instead written a note to his wife, stuck his service revolver in his mouth and Done The Proper Thing. Because it was HIS stupid idea to jump the Turks in Gallipoli. but the Band, played Waltzing Matilda As we stopped, to bury our slain We buried ours and the Turks, buried theirs. Then we started all over

Saint Paddy’s Day Massacre… with a slice of Turkey on the side.

There's also Turkey. "Model Democracy" of the Muslim world according to the Pentagoons and the Terror-State Department. Shaped and molded with American Taxpayer dollars since the end of World War One. My brother-in-law the Air Force Sergeant lets slip a little more than the Air Force would be comfortable divulging, but hey, they used to sell tee-shirts and bumper stickers at the BX saying "Peace is our profession --Killing is our Hobby."(Everything after the dash is an add on, the motto is that of Strategic Air Command, {defunct} which is now split into Space Command, Bomber Command and Missile Command... The ones with the nukes) and the ever-popular "we are here to win your hearts and minds (actual mission statement courtesy of General Westmoreland) ... Or just burn down your God-Damn huts." But one of the things that he let cross his lips, as he was trying desperately to berate me for my Anarchist "A" on my beret, "You know what they do to people like you in Turkey? (yeah, bro, they kill us in the streets and jail us and torture us on drummed up charges the same way they do here) "I watched as a the Turkish cops just blew one away" (meaning, they not only had him outgunned but outnumbered, Real Brave Men, they are...) and dragged his body away" (While a group of American "service"Men who were allegedly Protecting Freedom in Turkey stood guard and BY THEIR VERY PRESENCE ENABLED THE TURKISH PIGS TO MURDER A CITIZEN FOR EXERCISING FREE SPEECH) But they're fighting for "freedom". The lying sons-of-bitches don't fight for freedom there, they damn sure ain't going to fight for that freedom here either. Like the St Paddy's Day Massacre. Where they took an Anti-Imperialist Holiday and turned it into into an orgy of Imperialistic Mutual Congratulations and elevated the Military to the level of Christ on the Cross. Turkey figures into that as well, there was an incident not long after the (suppressed) St Patrick's Celebration in Ireland, before then it was a vassal state to the English, being forced to pay reparations to the English for the cost to the Imperial Crown to conquer them in the first place. And to pay the Crown for the cost of occupying Ireland and murdering the Irish subjects. Calling British subjects "citizens" is a misnomer, they're living in a Monarchy where the Top Bitch got her job by being born. But there's a Turkish island, Gallipoli. The Crown, represented by Winston Churchill, used the Colonial Conscripts from Australia, New Zealand, and IRELAND in what was and still is the most costly and brutal failed Amphibious Assault, ever. "That Small nations might be free" April 25, 1915. To show how successful this monstrous waste of human lives was/is, Gallipoli is still Turkish. And the Turkish government is making a "Killing" selling ANZAC Day tours of the battlefields. This was one of the breaking points of British and by extension American Imperialism in Ireland. A short 5 weeks after the Irish were forbidden to wear green or march in any parade

Christian on Christian Crime Spree, ongoing…

The nationalities of those identified as the hijackers on 9/11... 15 Saudis, 2 UAE, one Lebanese and one Egyptian, all of them U.S. allies in the wars against Iraq and Afghanistan. U.S. and Allied Casualties on D-Day, D-Day, 2499 Verified American dead, 10,000 ALLIED soldiers. Fox (Ministry of Propaganda) puts total at 4000 and as high as 9000. Killed by the "Christian" cultures of Italy and Germany. That doesnt count the French Civilians killed by actions of both sides, nor the Christian Italians and Germans killed by the Christian British, French, Canadian, U.S., Polish, Dutch, Norwegian, Danish, Belgian, just to name the major players. None of the 9/11 hijackers were either Iraqi or Afghan. Saying that a coalition of Saudis attacking the U.S. justifies attacking two countries that Are Not Saudi Arabia would be like saying D-Day justifies an attack on Mexico. Or England. Yet the Right Wing BabyKillers still play the 9/11 card and expect us to eat it up and ask for seconds. Save room for dessert, because it's really sweet. The vast majority of wars in which Christianity as a State Religion was a factor, were wars against Other Christian Nations or Christian subjects of the Same Nation. That includes the infamous Crusades. Our Favorite Mercenaries, admired by Blackwater/Xe as being the epitome of Christian Warriors, Les Chevaliers Templars, Indicted by their Fellow Christians from the Catholic Church for murdering and kidnapping Other Crusaders and that notation was only made because they ran afoul of the French king and his Pet Pope. Richard Couer d'Leon, the "Black Knight" from Ivanhoe and Robin Hood legend, King by right of conquest of England (though he spoke no English) kidnapped twice and killed once by his Fellow Crusaders. And that's just the high-profile case. Seems the Christian Nobility were neither. Christian.. Noble... not a chance. After LOSING their very fat collective Arse to the Turks and Arabs they turned their focus more inward, and just started slaughtering (mostly) Christian subjects in their own kingdoms and those of the neighboring kings. By the logic implied by the 9/11 chanting Murderers, or at least inferred by me, the Christian Blood shed by Christian Warriors over the past 20 centuries means only one thing... That Christianity should enter into a Jihad to wipe ourselves out as an embarrassment to the name of God. Actually, we already do.

Question of Nationalism v. Imperialism …again

EU officials not allowing Washington to monitor their economic transactions, Washington upset. So, does Washington allow the EU or Mexico or Cuba or Iran or who-the-hell-ever a similar privilege of monitoring United States bank transactions? Nationalism that doesn't grant equal sovereign rights to every nation isn't nationalism, it's Imperialism. That's the stated British Empires propaganda excuse for The Great War. While and at the same time they were doing to Ireland, India, China, Kenya. etc etc etc etc etc precisely what the King's Cousin the Hapsburg Emperor of Austria and Hungary was doing to Serbia. "Down from the trees, and onto your knees" White Man's Burden, Our Fledgling Civilization is better than yours, which was thriving when our ancestors were living in mud huts. (Hitler actually told Himmler that about his constant harping on Aryan Supremacy, his personal tastes ran more toward Rome) Speaking of Rome, the "Oderint Dum Metuant" policy that Bush made our official foreign relations Nightmare seems to be raising its ugly head once again. I was hoping, ever the optimist, that the hubris of the Bu'ush Regime would end when the Bu'ush Regime ended. Apparently not. There was absolutely NOTHING about the Bush administration or their annointed Replacement Palin/McAncient that indicates a moral or especially Intellectual superiority that they could use to justify their claim to having a right, indeed, a DUTY, to run the rest of the world. The Right wing can, and do, claim a tit-for-tat same-back-at-you about Presidents Obama and Clinton.
