Shock and Awe, Oderint Dum Metuant and the term 1%

It finally occurred to me why I had so much difficulty with the term "1%" as applied to Banksters. It's a biker term. Someone in the late 50s, a motorcycle enthusiast magazine, had said "99 percent of all motorcycle riders are decent, honest law abiding citizens" (very true) and it was a response to a growing distrust of motorcyclists by the general public. Probably fed to the public by propaganda because the Wall Street types would make more money selling people cars than bikes. So a lot of the Sonny Barger types (he was president of the Hells Angels) took to tattooing "1%" on their forearms where it would be really prominent. Some undoubtedly were and are Billy. You know Billy, right? Billy the Badass? Some had never met Billy and others had met Billy and got their lunch money taken and sent home crying. Menacing glares and display of anger can be faked and your average citizen wouldn't be able to tell the difference. Me, I ride because I enjoy it, and to get from one place to another in a reasonable amount of time. Never gave a crap about the Leader of the Pack attitude. Although I heard

PA Homeland Security Chief: Burning Hate Flag = Terrorism

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. 19787

Obama breaks truth to widows: Miners died as Corporate Slaves, get used to it

Not really. He said they died in pursuit of a better life. But since the Coal Companies and other Corporate owners of West Virginia aren't going to actually invest anything in developing some other way for the people who live there to survive, and the people have not nearly enough opportunity to build their own enterprises, it IS a cycle of corporate slavery. 16258

“Energy (oil) ministers say 23 Trillion in investment needed” according to AP

--to find new sources of Oil and natural gas, of course. Strangely, that's about what my estimate of the cost of the recent 8 years worth of Federal Giveaways to the Oil Corporations would total. So, do the Oil Corporations REALLY need Welfare from all the governments of the world? Where would that much-ballihooed "Free Market" supremacy account for such a huge bailout to what's supposedly the single most profitable industry of the past century? To be honest, I didn't read past that shocking headline. I just DON'T need to ruin my day reading veiled threats (almost typo-ed "vealed" as in Fatted Calf) from the richest people on the planet about what will happen if they're not given the rest of the Planetary Treasury, the fealty of every son of Adam and a lien on the souls and service of our children for generations to come.
