It’s just another day in The Land of Corporate Dictatorship on ‘election day’

--- The American people will have wasted another one of our days in The Land of Corporate Dictatorship. Yes, 'your' USA is run by the collective Walmarts, Bank of Americas, KFCs, Lockheeds, and et al Corporation that makes up our nobility, Serf People. Have a Nice Day if you can then? Tomorrow perhaps we can collectively do a little bit better than this passivity that consumes us all as we allow Big Business to consume Planet Earth.

Recent rally against Monsanto and a little not-so-very-recent

At a recent rally in Downtown Colorado Springs... Mark made some good points about Monsanto. Here's some more. You remember, as do I, how exactly Monsanto got busted back in the late 70s with the Paraquat Pot? Paraquat is one of their signature lines of "weed" killers, herbicides, such as Agent Orange and Roundup. The company li(n)e is and was that there was no evidence that soldiers exposed directly to Agent Orange had (significantly) higher incidence of cancer than soldiers not exposed to it. Denial because they were being sued. Well, other herbicides they make, RoundUp and Paraquat, contain the same type of chemical, not the active ingredient, but a side-product of the chemical reactions to manufacture the "goodies". A class of chemicals called Dioxins. Their harmful nature ranges from damn that's freakin' scary to OhMyGod we've kicked open the doors of Hell and those are esoteric chemical-talk terms. If you don't recognise them then you're not a chemist. At the high end of the spectrum is where the product was burned. As in, soldiers usually on punishment detail raking up the dead plants and burning them. Monsanto didn't out themselves, nor did the Army. The DEA did instead, by publishing a warning that they had been spraying Paraquat JUST LIKE AGENT ORANGE and J.L.A.O, if you inhaled the burning product it could cause you to die and cited an Army Agent Orange study. The one the Army and Monsanto and Dow and Dupont were denying ever existed. So, the Army stopped using Agent Orange. Big deal, they still use the other chemicals that have that same nasty little add-on, the part they can't get rid of without destroying the goodies, the Dioxins. Now how much would you pay? Monsanto and the U.S. (taxpayers) government paid a settlement in 1983 that equalled about a weeks worth of hospitalization for each veteran who was diagnosed before then. NONE for anybody diagnosed afterward and certainly none for the South VietNamese, Filipino, Thai or other allies who were also sprayed with the shit. They sprayed it around U.S. bases so the native vegetation wouldn't be so overgrown that people could walk right up to the fence. They Still Do. Then there's the Monsanto and Philip Morris, RJ Reynolds connection, tobacco bred to be resistant to A.O. or more specifically, RoundUp. Yep, there was a video article on the NOVA television program in 1990 describing Genetically Modified Organisms and of course, Monsanto was the star of the show. One of their projects was with Big Tobacco growing successively more resistant plants. See, with the herbicides, they only work when the plant is above ground, sprouted. After the cash crop, in this case tobacco, WHICH IS TYPICALLY USED BY LIGHTING IT ON FIRE and inhaling the toxic smoke, has sprouted, no more Agent Ora RoundUp. So they have to kill the weeds before the cash crop sprouts. Doesn't, however, kill the seeds of the weeds like the farmer needs. But at the end of the show, there were tobacco plants being sprayed

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

If foreign citizens aren’t allowed to vote

... 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. When Pete Lee, Owen Hill, Ken Buck, Douglas Bruce, Dan Maes, Tom Tancredo, any of their Fox News and Hate-speech Radio pukes get to talking about how they're concerned about the well being of the working people in America they're lying through their fat, porky Corporate Fed faces. Not a single one of them would lift a single manicured delicate dainty effete Elitist finger to do REAL work himself, nor would they lift a finger to help REAL workers any more than they would REAL Soldiers or REAL anybody of any version of Workers who they pretend to be. Same-ass Lame-ass thing goes for their Tea Party Corporate Funded and Corporate Organized Astroturf "grassroots" lying cowardly supporters. When you hear the words "American Crossroads" on the radio or TV attack ads, remember that's an organization run by and stolen from by Karl Rove, the Fat Piggish Lying ChickenHawk PUKE who helped Cheney and Bush lie us into two incredibly expensive wars, the SAME wars which have bankrupted America. And the rest of the world too. I mentioned "Stolen from" because Karl Rove is the kind of thief who steals just to stay in practice. It's important to note: NONE of these shitbuzzards are actually Pathological Liars, naturals at the game. They went to school specifically to train themselves to be Professional Liars. Pathological liars and Kleptomaniacs are insane, and it's reflected in the unbelievable extravagance of

The Census and Original Intent of the Founding Aristocrats

Since we have a lot of loudmouth Know-it-all know-nothings running their collective head, in chorus, paid by the richest men in America to cement the notion of an American Aristocracy based on personal wealth, Who tell us every hour of every day that they, and ONLY They, know the original intent of a group of arbitrarily assigned White Aristocrats they call the "Founding Fathers", a group which includes up to ... actually less than, 100 of the richest men in America. Out of the 3,929,326 MEN and only MEN counted in the first census in 1790. Never mind that even the very tiny INSIGNIFICANT representative sample they define as the "Founding Fathers" never unanimously agreed on any single issue, and that John Adams, one of the Richest of the bunch, granted himself arbitrary powers in a definition of the Sedition Acts to jail people who disagreed with his personal agenda. Or that there wasn't a Majority Consensus on the Bill of Rights, which wasn't included in the Original Constitution. Or that of those 3,929,326 MEN more than half weren't allowed to VOTE for who got to represent them... No Taxation without representation? How about "No REPRESENTATIVE DICTATORSHIP without Representation"? Their "original intent" is considered irrelevant by the Pompous Ass Pseudo-Intellectuals who are trying to force their Elitist (just not actually "elite") agenda on the rest of us. What of the OTHERS who had to bear the burdens of the conflicted and contradictory mandates from the Tiny Minority Even Of The Landed Aristocracy who are arbitrarily assigned the title "Founding Fathers" but not only weren't given the Vote, they weren't even COUNTED. Women, Children, Bonded (slavery through debt) and people Born Slaves weren't counted. Nor were the Native Americans in the territories claimed by the White Aristocratic Tiny Minority. Actually, slaves were counted as "Property" not as human population. Wonderful group of Role Models you Right Wing Extremists have there. In 1860 American Indians were counted, but only those who had "renounced" tribal affiliations, and of course, the sovereignty CONSTITUTIONALLY defined by Treaty (Article VI) which was recognized on paper but virtually never at gunpoint. Nor were these Americans who had given up their tribal rights accorded any citizenship rights until 1911, more than a half century later. The United States in 1790 consisted of the 13 original states and the territories that later became the states of Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin, Maine, Vermont, Kentucky, Tennessee, and Alabama. Notice that save for Maine and Vermont, (two French words actually) the other territories have American Indian names. There's a reason for that. Actually "Indiana" was designated as an entirely Indian territory, hence the name. Then number of American Indians IN WHAT WAS THE UNITED STATES at the time was far greater than the number of those Americans counted as "citizens" and a HUGE difference between their population and the fewer than 100 Rich Bitches who are said to be the Last and Only deciders of American Law. So, are we to join their Rush to turn

Transit Authority “Let them Eat Cake” meeting Oct 11

Public meeting that was scheduled for this past Monday, 27 Sep 2010, postponed until Monday after next, the 11th of October. Strong-arm Mayor Rivera and his Puppet Council are pushing to sever Front Range Express, thus ending any chance of a Regional transportation system, along with the Ute Pass bus service, welcomed by so many in the Back Range because it gives the people as far away as Divide, or really any place like Florissant or Cripple Creek or Guffey a chance to park the gas guzzlers and make the trip down 24 the RIGHT way. The Rich folk don't seem to care because they can always hop into their Corporate Welfare Subsidized Cars and drive to Denver or Divide, threaten anybody who dares to share their Own Personal Road with them and deduct the money spent, including gas, maintenance and even the cost of their vehicles as "Business Expenses", leaving the rest of us to pay for their luxury. Way to GO, Rich Bitches! I'm certain that Janis Beep-beep, Mayor Rivera, Bernie Herpin and the other Thieves who prey on the tax base like that, will of course honor the soldiers they send to foreign lands to suppress the price of gasoline and ensure that those Naughty Nationalists in OTHER nations don't develop any perilous notions like the idea that they can offer their resources to whoever they choose, rather than giving it to the US and British oil companies at the prices the U.S. and British Oil Companies want to pay. They'll honor them by laying wreaths at the national cemeteries, on designated holidays, get plenty of free advertising in the way of Right Wing Media reports on how very "patriotic" they are, and they'll charge the costs of the wreaths and the costs of transporting them to the cemeteries and memorials from their taxes as "charitable deductions". Meanwhile they're talking about cutting off the bus service at 1:00 PM and ending the Front Range Express and Ute Pass bus services. All the (other peoples) money they would have to otherwise pay for bus maintenance and operations, thus would be in places and situations where it would be easier for them to steal it. Their meeting where Rivera and his accomplices are expected to once more tell us to eat sh.. errr "cake" and die, is October 11th and will of course be during regular working hours, therefore those of us Bus Riding Peasants who are hanging on to our gainful employment will be excluded from the meeting. If they're true to form it will be at 2 PM and you'll have to check your torches and pitchforks at the door and go through security checkpoints to gain the privilege of City Council sneering at you in person.
