Operation: Love Reunited

Awww, how sweet... A volunteer group of professional photographers taking pictures of the "warriors" and their families as they go off to fight "for our freedom". Anybody catch the tone yet? A sickly sweet family scene with a father in the Air Force being deployed, leaving behind his young son and his wife, 6 months preggers with his next son, whose birth he's going to miss because he's going to be Blowing Other Young Mothers and Children and Their Families Apart with high explosives. So he's playing toy soldiers with his son, that's right, go ahead and teach your kid to be more cannon fodder/Imperial Storm Trooper in the endless war started by Billionaires to stuff their bank accounts with more blood money, and they'll tell your kid that it's all about "freedom" and "protecting America" and other lies. "When I grow up I'm going to be a merciless butcher of Human Beings just like Daddy!" 29336

The Puppet-Masters and their pet Turkey, double-dealing.

They condemn those of us in America who rebel against their fascist Corporate leadership and presumption of ownership of every aspect of our lives, calling it "Freedom" while their Pig-Slaves break our heads with clubs and plastic bullets. And in the case of Oscar Grant, lead and copper bullets. While cheering rebellions in countries which have denied "deprived" the Poor Little Rich Boys like Halliburton, Exxon-Mobil, British Petroleum, Royal Dutch, Shell, "stolen" their claim to have Corporate Control over their ports and their oil. And they actually finance and organize the so-called "spontaneous" rebellions like in Libya and now, Syria. Never mind they're also paying Other Peoples Money And Lives to put down REAL grass roots movements in Iraq and Afghanistan and Yemen... And Turkey. Turkey is now paying back their Corporate Overlords for the U.S. and NATO PUBLICLY FUNDED Terror War against the Kurds and Albania. The Slave-Caliph Recep Tayyip Erdogan condemns Syria for responding violently to violent attacks while continuing to suppress, with the help of his Puppet Masters in London and Washington, the Kurdish People actually having a right to life. Lick them Pentagon Boots, "caliph" Erdogan. They're your masters and you are their dog. Just like the New

Cain being charged on sex, but not the Murder and Robbery and Slavery

He's paid to support War, it's the base of Capital. Now they've got some sex accusations brought to bring him down. As heinous as rape is, or the statutory rape of an employee or job candidate as a condition of being hired... There's the literally countless murders of civilians including children done to support the lavish lifestyle of the Corporate Class. It would pale in comparison to even one such wanton murder. It's drinking from the same fount, though, War, Slavery, Prostitution, Rape... but so far there's a thunderous silence booming from the Right over any and all of those issues. To raise the issue that War is equivalent to any of the other crimes, or even a solid foundation to mask and enable them, has been political suicide since the time of the Athenians. The beating of War drums awakens and energizes people who only vote on emotion, and Capital is subsidized by War. It cannot survive without war, it's not a self-sustaining system as the "Invisible Hand Free Market" proponents claim. 29070

Homunculus Again

This time in Mississippi. The laws attempted by State Senator Bobby Franklin of Georgia would have made even wearing a condom into Capital Murder, and would place burden of proof that a woman wasn't using contraception including the Infamous Trojan, squarely on that woman. Now Mississippi citizens are displaying a similar level of ignorance with a similar quagmire (or is it tar baby?) of a law. If a woman who is married or known by the community to be sexually active, and not bearing children, would have to prove to the courts that she wasn't practicing contraception. Mississippi is right behind Texas in the percentage of people getting food assistance and AFDC. Just, you know, incidentally and by the way. And is scheduling cuts in public health care, so women would have to prove they're not deliberately remaining childless at their own expense. It's just so very wonderful to see my fellow "christians" behaving with so much compassion. It would if strictly enforced make War illegal because War Causes Miscarriage which is medically termed Spontaneous Abortion. However, an Aerial Bombardment would make in NOT spontaneous but externally induced, and since the U.S. Air Force and the RAF demonstrated that in world war two

Almost forgot to title this one about a Traitor Iraqi “hero” in Colorado Springs

It's illegal for SOME Private Citizens to keep people in torture dungeons, but not for Halliburton, Exxon-Mobil, Blackwater etc on whose behalf a young Iraqi TRAITOR turned in his own family several years ago to the American Puppet Regime. Now the little puke is 19 and is still being hailed as a hero by the Colorado Springs War-Pig Establishment such as KOAA New 5 and the Gazette. And how is the American War Regime different from Saddam Hussein? For one thing, they actually HAVE weapons of mass destruction, more of all three major classes, Biological, Chemical and Nuclear, than all the rest of the world combined. So when PIGS like the recent attackers in Oakland and Atlanta go off on "their own citizens" as though we were THEIR "own" property, right? beating down, using toxic gas, plastic bullets that break bones, the coward torture freaks are actually Protected by the U.S. Government. Like the Army, CIA, Blackwater, other publicly funded Private Torture Services, they get paid to get their little sexual giggles from torturing people. Like the father of the Scum Coward Little Bitch Traitor. I wonder if the Military Police who sponsor him show him pictures of them torturing

Police attack Occupy Oakland and Occupy Atlanta

Not so good news from Atlanta and Oakland where popo busted up the occupation with tear gas and swinging clubs. This in spite of the fact that no violent acts or threats of violence had come from the occupiers. I'll preface this next statement, because some on the MightMakesRight Wing don't have very good reading skills, Tear Gas is sometimes lethal just as Nerve Gas(es) are not universally lethal, many people have died from tear gas and many people have survived being gassed with The Other. It's not a question of whether Tear Gas is lethal but a mere question of relative lethality. Much like the difference between being shot with a .38 special and being shot with a 12 gauge shotgun and that relative to being shot several times with a belt fed machine gun. The Oakland PIGS, famous for hiring a white supremacist from the former Rhodesia who subsequently MURDERED an American Black Man, Oscar Grant, by shooting Mr Grant in the back while he was laying on the concrete.... Then let him get away with that murder through a deliberately botched investigation (Blue Wall)... 28792

In the spirit of AIM, entrepreneurship and Our Father Who is Art, in the Intersection

One of the Idolatrous Statues downtown is of Gen Winfield Scott. The placard reads that he was an entrepreneur, a "self made" millionaire. Bullshit. I was wondering where I had heard the name before. He was the officer in charge of the Cherokee Removal. He got his money and his land grants at the point of the rifles and bayonets of the Publicly Paid Soldiers he commanded, same as the Horses Ass on the Horses Back in the middle of the intersection of Platte and Nevada. All their land and railroad wheeling and dealing was Subsidized Corporate Welfare and the point needs to be stressed more often. Especially as the Wall Street class warfare heats up and the Perpetual Whiners in the Ruling (for now) Class about how they worked hard to get control of the economy of the world grows ever louder and more shrill. The Warrior Class is drawn from the ranks of the Other Slaves. Those of the Pentagoons who think they "clawed their way to the top", the vast majority are like Robert E. Lee, who graduated West Point and nobody supposedly gave him any preferential treatment because his Grandpa was the first commandant. Or John McCain

Obama sez: “The nation of Libya now belongs to OUR oil companies”

Actually he said "to the Libyan people". They're also saying not a single (American and therefore more important than any Libyans) life was lost. Yet another mass murder for profit. Meanwhile, Libya had been the main contributor of humanitarian aid to Africa whereas the AMERICAN "aid" has largely been in the form of weapons, killing, let them starve, take all their raw materials, and kill anybody who objects. The funding for the Libyan aid came from Libyan oil, nationalized and the REAL reason for the attacks on Libya over the past 4 decades. Can't have any nation own the resources of that nation, that would be socialism and capitalism can't survive unless they violently stomp out any other economic model. Capital is NOT a self sustaining system, it has to be subsidized, at public expense, with war and other forms of Murder. Capitalism takes more public money than socialism ever could and gives it to arrogant rich Socially Retarded Animated Sphincters like the Koch Brothers. Now that the oil is going to be given, more corporate welfare, to BP and Exxon and Shell, where is the aid money to Africa going to come from? Sure as Hell isn't going to be from the Oil Companies. They only

Sacred Cows and scapegoating the Almighty (dollar)

I mentioned that the terms Sacred Cow and Scapegoat are used completely opposite their original meanings in the American Vernacular. And it goes well with my usual contention that people who demand that everybody speak English should, for conscience sake, actually learn to speak it themselves. "sacred cows" aren't something safe from sacrifice, like the cattle in India, who aren't actually worshipped but are instead considered honored citizens, they're the cattle designated to be sacrificed in the Jewish Temple. The "scapegoat" was a goat designated by the priesthood of the same Temple (originally Tabernacle) to have all the sins of the people laid on him, in the form of the priests laying hands on him.... and then set free, bearing the sins of the people away. If that sounds like needless mumbo jumbo consider: the standard at the time of Moses was to make a HUMAN (usually child) sacrifice. Ol' Moe suddenly looks more like a liberal, don't he? Oft the sounds fall upon mine ears "If those stupid Hindus would just kill their Sacred Cows nobody would be hungry" Not so. In order to support a beef centered diet like we've got now in America, they would have to do what

You get your weather forecast at the grocery store DUH!

My Grandpa, 27 year veteran of the Army, was also a staunch Democrat mostly because of Roosevelt and his emergency actions to stop the Depression from destroying America. As bad as it was, it could have gone worse. I know a lot of our (ahem)"conservative" readers, those who drew the assignment of trolling the weblog today, are screaming at their monitors right now just from that. Now, don't y'all worry none, boys, you'll get more to holler about presently. He was in the Civilian Conservation Corps, the ones who at public expense did the necessary work to keep the Heartland from turning into a desert, and cleaned up other little "mistakes" visited on the ecosystem by Mechanized American Mercantilism. That's my nouveau mot du jour. Grandpa was assigned on a dairy farm. With a bunch of others, one of whom was from some city and had apparently never become acquainted with farm life. And who complained about caring for, cleaning and milking the cows. Since cattle lay belly down to sleep at night, often in their own feces, you can't just lead Bossy to the barn, slap a bucket under her and starting pulling teats. Hell to the No Sir. You have to

“as long as it keeps us safe”

Today the big story is that it's September 9th. Whoop di diddly doo. Also, there was an alert which caused Washing Tundy Sea and New Dork to be, how shall I say it, under no-rights martial law. And they got at least one FumDuck to say "I don't mind as long as it keeps people safe". The tip on which they were operating has still so far yielded no identification of the three terrorists who are allegedly right now allegedly stalking the streets of America waiting to blow people up. This sounds like a case of "If we can't get a REAL terror threat, we'll invent one and hope enough Americans are too stupid to catch on." While a real threat manifested itself, the Terrorist Hunt over the past decade has bankrupted America chasing shadows and allowed the infrastructure to rot and Corporations to poison, break down and just basically destroy America in the pursuit of their god the Dollar Bill. They even call it "The Almighty". To the point that a simple error blacked out San Diego and a few other choice locations for 12 hours. So, where are all these Right Wing FumDucks standing on the issue of Government Measures Which

Homeland Insecurity Budget Report: My prediction: More Government Terrorism

Homeland Security and their associates such as the Military, Police and privateers like Blackwater Xe are the REAL Terrorists, who have robbed America blind and then stole the seeing-eye dog. Using in typical extortionist manner, threats from Other Gangs to shake us down, "You don't pay us the protection racket money, we won't be able to keep the Others from shaking you down". It's called "selling a hog". They'll say we're "safer" from foreign attack but need more money to be poured down their insatiable gullets in order to "stay ahead of" people who as described in other Might-Makes-Right Wing propaganda are so "inferior" that they couldn't possibly be a threat. They'll try to insert racist fears, more profiling of darker skinned people with funny names. And of course dismiss any accusations of "racism" as being paranoid. Crazy, in other words. Anglo Terrorists like the Minutemen and Tea Party "patriots" have killed more Americans than Spanish, Black, Indians, Muslims, Arabs... Not just with their Direct Actions where they gun down "liberals" or "mixcans" like they did in Arizona, Tennessee, other places... But with indirect murders such as slashing all safety and environmental regulations, at the request of their Billionaire Masters, poisoning our water and air and ground,

Spank a Vet with a warm fuzzy Attaboy

For those who think that the Peace people dishonor the veterans, think a bit on what the most prominent campaigns has to offer in the way of humiliation. One of the "new and improved" corporate motivational methods is called "peer recognition" because research showed that workers don't want to actually be, you know, adequately paid for our labor which enriches our bosses and impoverishes us. No, we want the empowerment of "recognition" for our good deeds. Say (and this happens far too often to be hypothetical) you have an innovation that saves your company many times your annual salary. What does the boss do to reward you?   First he patents your innovation and declares it corporate intellectual property, then gives you an award ceremony where he more or less pats your head and tells you "Attaboy!" which those English speakers who own dogs might recognize. There's even an award letter, usually hand-written by your supervisor, saying "Attaboy!" and sometimes a Warm Fuzzy, which is a recognition pin that looks kind of like a piece of pocket lint or a dust-bunny from under a desk. How special, right? Your peers get to recognize that your contribution made the boss wealthier and as

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

Another military victory where the Poor “socialized” their blood for Capitalism

Tripoli, the site of the FIRST U.S. Military engagement to prop up capitalism, is apparently fallen, not to economic "free" market forces, but to the Armed Forces. In a book titled "Liberty Reclaimed", often described as the libertarian bible, the statement is made and reiterated "the only substantial difference between the Soviet Union and the United States isn't one of raw political power or the freedom of the subjects but one of economic policy."   So, when the Military claimed and still claim that they were and are fighting for freedom, they're lying. Just as the Pentagon and their contractors lie about Agent Orange, which killed Miss Johnnie's husband and a countless number of others. Countless because the Pentagon, bowing to their Corporate Masters, denied for more than a decade that Agent Orange actually causes human death. They also have recently claimed in a lawsuit that locks out the people of VietNam from any lawsuits that the people of the Republic of VietNam (Saigon government) sprayed with A.O. (and lots of other Military hardware sold at massive profits by the Corporations who now claim a moral exemption to taxation) were enemy combatants thus not eligible for compensation for their kids being killed.

An 83% Payroll Tax, on the Workers and paid directly to the Corporations

That's what I paid and, everybody who works for a "Slave Market" minimum wage Labor Contractor Service such as Labor Ready, Apprentice, Manpower, Kelly... The "tax" is paid to a Non-Governmental Organization, and is paid before the Worker gets his check. I base the 83% figure on the fact that the workers are paid only 1/6th of what the Parasite Corporation gets for his "product". Under the various manifestations of the "Right To Get Screwed At Work" law, the workers aren't allowed to negotiate wages, working conditions, pensions or Insurance through the use of Collective Bargaining. We're supposed, instead, to go hat-in-hand and beg the employer for a slight fraction more of what is actually owed us. On an individual basis and, under the RTW law, the employer can cut your wages just as quickly as he "gives" them to you. They can take 5 times what we get, producing absolutely NOTHING themselves. We're not allowed to do what the Corporate Masters do, insist on a profit for our product. Nor, according to the laws as interpreted by their Tame Supreme Court, are we even allowed to break even. You can't go to King Soopers or Safeway and buy a $3

The shocking part about the AI PACkers… Listen up, Lamborn fans…

It's not the blatant anti-Semitism involved in wanting to set Israel up as a target for near-total destruction, it's not their arrogance in making money supplying the means, the money, weapons, propaganda, anti-social gospel of indifference, answering the question of Cain "am I my brothers keeper" with a resounding NO, warmongering on every level... setting all the preconditions for an apocalyptic global destruction, the one they make money predicting... predicting the ride of the Horsemen and grooming their horses for them at the same time... No, the really shockingly delusional part about it is their overwhelmingly conceited belief that Everybody Else on the planet would be so stupid that we wouldn't notice that. We're supposed to not notice that they're warning of destruction, and sowing the economic seeds of that destruction daily, using the monetary policies that will ensure famines, ensure that natural disasters will have a far greater human scope than would be possible otherwise. Huge concentrations of people on the edge of recurrent natural disasters, kept there for the profit of a very few. Mass indoctrination of Hate, to keep the unnatural disasters of War going. All traced back to a very tiny minority whose faith is in no God or

War costs many times what Pentagon reported, Surprise.

We've been told, you know, that the total spending on the Wars Of Conquest in the Bananastans was "only" a Trillion dollars. For those who don't visualize numbers very well, that's a million times a million. Using the largest standard bill in U.S. Currency, the $100, it would take a suitcase to hold a million dollars, and it would weigh just over 22 pounds, ten kilograms. (Each bill weighs a gram, 10,000 bills... hey, people in the drug trade know that, it's easier to weigh a million dollars than count it. That shit from Scarface where they had a counting machine, pure fiction. Dope dealers use their scales for more than just weighing out the product.) Other estimates are 3.7 trillion. That's substantially more. Then there's more realistic estimates that range from 5 Trillion up to 8 Tera-bux. That would be from estimating the costs + "over-runs" like syphoning off a few million suitcases full of Benjamins, of construction projects given with no-bid contracts to companies like Halliburton, which has a lot of connections to the Bush Family and the former President of Vice, Richard "dickless" Cheney. But they wouldn't rip us off, no, not possible. I could barely type that snark-asm

BP can’t find skilled workers. DUH!

As part of the international cabal sabotaging public education, workers rights, environmental and workplace safety, and making sure the Courts are fully privatized and thus Not Going To Ever Grant Equal Protection Under The Law.   Oh, that's right, we, the workers, who control less than a fifth of the wealth of the world, are allowed to buy judges too. Mighty gracious of them to "give" us such a right. The law, in its majestic equality, forbids rich and poor alike from begging, stealing bread and sleeping under bridges. 26440

The Afghanda…. U.S. Paternalism with a touch of Manifest Destiny.

President Obama made much glowing talk about all the "help" that "we're giving" Afghanistan, building roads for the use of "our" military transports, schools where "we" get to teach their kids to be Corporate Slaves just like the kids in Amerika. A centralized Police State government which is under "our" control. The wonderful security enjoyed by prisoners everywhere. Rescuing the Afghans from having to make decisions based on their needs rather than "our" corporate needs. But, of course, "we" didn't bomb them into rubble and then bomb the rubble and invade and control and kill any who "we" can't control for the Glowing Purpose Mr Obama praised so highly, to help the Afghan people in any way. 24977

Wikileaks- US State Dept ties Haitian aid to acceptance of wage slavery

When the outgoing Haitian Govt insisted on the whopping huge $5 a DAY minimum wage instead of the three dollars a day being offered by the Corporate-owned U.S.A.I.D., their pet sellouts at State Dept, which has been trying to put a stranglehold on who does or does not do business with Haiti since, like, Forever, endorsed a U.S.A.I.D. report that Haiti wasn't as badly harmed by the earthquake and thus, the Haitian people owe the aid money back. Welcome to the Global Plantation. I wonders, yes I does, how much Gov Scott Walker, Rep Paul Ryan, Gov LePage of Maine, Rick GoodHair of Texas, The Chambers of Commerce, and their Local Anti-worker ToolsTrained Monkeys like Paige, Patchsi, Janis Heuberger, Jeff Crank, Malkin, Tancredo, and the entire City Council, the Mayor and County Commissioners have in their own personal stock portfolios on this? Slavery by low wage and high debt IS their main way of doing business. How about it, anti-Union anti-Working Class PUNKS? Sound off on how morally superior and righteous you are in defense of Slavery.

George Bush trusted and funded the Pakistan Military…

Even though they killed far more citizens of Pakistan than all resistance groups combined even if you count in the Chair Force Office Warriors with their drone strikes as Insurgent actions rather than Propping up the Pakistani Puppet. So, little recent (like, this morning) revelations that the compound taken out by the Navy SEALs was on a Pakistan Military Base, one thought being that our relationship with their Army should be re-evaluated. How honest and in depth is that revelation going to be? The Chimpleton and his not-as-stupid father had lots of contracts in oil-field construction and maintenance given to the bin Laden family, administered no doubt by Halliburton KBR. Their tame puppet military was given carte blanche to slaughter "their own" people, much like Saddam Hussein was given a similar license until his oil franchise invaded the Corporate Domain of another U.S. owned "sovereign" Puppet Dictator. The way the U.S. Army was given Carte Blanche to take out "their own people" if they happened to wear dark skin and have Native Tribal affiliations. The compound was described a few times as being a multi-million dollar affair. That would be big money anywhere, but in a country known for (American) Corporate Wage Slavery

Sarah Palin and the Republican Lie of “sacrifice”

Since she makes so much political hay over having sacrificed "her own" son to the Military Establishment, maybe she should have a short tutorial on the word Sacrifice. First, stolen goods, stolen money and humans aren't viewed as Clean for the Temple. Just like Caiphas couldn't spend the thirty shekels, because it was the price of blood. Sarah Palin could not in any way OWN her son. He's another separate human being. Not a possession. He might consider himself a sacrifice (he'd be wrong) but it would be HIS blood offering, not hers. Also he doesn't seem to be dying for the atonement of anybody's sin, if he DOES get his fascist face blown through the back of his skull it'll be because he's in a foreign country enslaving the people, taking their land and oil in the name of the corporations for whom Momma Grizzly does her whorin'. and one of them would get in a good shot while defending his country against Young Sgt Palin. Not anything similar to a sacrifice. 23771

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

Crime and Punishment and The CSCS Baby Killing Award

Tony wrote a piece about the ambiguous nature of prosecution in America, a DA can decline to prosecute anybody, or so it seeeeeeeems and somebody felt it amusing to write in offering to have sex with him. On the other hand, this month a Mass Murderer is coming to Colorado Springs with warrants for his arrest on war crimes... And the CSPD are going to protect him as usual and the "Christian" leaders are going to give his coward ass a medal, and the District Attorney is going to stand ready to prosecute anybody who disrupts the disgusting worship of Babykilling. And any so-called "Impartial" Judge in the state will join right in and "impartially" find him guilty before the "Impartial" hearing starts, and if the fellow is REALLY unfortunate he'll have to depend on the "Public Pretender" defense attorney who actually works for the same prosecution/police state the Judge and cops and District Attorney work for. The same Power Cartel who, under the leadership of such coward scumsuckers as George Bush and Sarah Palin and with the support of the Blasphemers at Colorado Springs Christian School and many others, also make war on people whose nations aren't legally under their control, like Iraq.
