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

Autism and Mercury

So they "laid that myth to rest", right? Actually, no. The entire focus of Autism in re Toxic Metals got sidetracked onto vaccines with a mercury preservative. Which, some pointed out, CONTAINED FAR LESS MERCURY THAN THE AMOUNT PRESENTLY IN ENVIRONMENTAL SOURCES and that has to be emphasized because the ENVIRONMENTAL SOURCES somehow dropped out of the equation. Chemical industry, M.I. C., anybody? Like mercury released into the environment from metals refining, or perhaps from the manufacture AND USE of ammunition? Like the mercury fulminate, which is a water-soluble mercury compound, nitrated mercury, explosive, used as a detonator/primer compound. When it burns, combusts explosively, does exactly what the product is designed to do, it kills one way quickly. Tosses a somewhat more massive chunk of metal in the general direction of a "target". Meaning, in the case of Wars and Police actions, the primary intent of firearms, A Human Being Whose Life Is Considered To Be Worth Less Than The Life Of The Person Shooting At Him/Her. When it burns that way, the mercury fulminate isn't destroyed, it's vaporized. If you took a two pound brick, broke it, smashed it, turned it into two pounds of dust, it's still two pounds of

Child victims of American desperation

I like this last picture of Shaniya Davis, taken it appears, on the ordinary occasion of a new cellphone camera. The five-year-old's body was just recovered by North Carolina police. Her mother Antoinette Davis, 25, has been arrested on charges of selling her daughter into prostitution. 11702

Chenega and Pentagon Tomahawk cruise missile penetration of the US Native American community

Most of us know about how the Pentagon has people like Generals Colin Powell and Ricardo Sanchez on board for its penetration into the Black and Hispanic populations. Nothing too new about trying to buy off and corrupt America's minority communities by holding out the military's 'socialism' for soldiers program here. Get some Blacks and Browns on board the racist US foreign policy of pummelling Black and Brown people abroad, while offering crumbs to the minority ethnic communities inside the US. Hold up a general or two high (even a president perhaps!) to try to convince these minority communities to participate eagerly into being co-opted by the military. But... 5599

Support ‘Our’ Troops?

Let's say it up front and bluntly. The often heard litany that we must support the troops is really Code for those who say we must continue to support the entire Pentagon-founded corporate welfare system that the rich use to appropriate all for themselves from the wealth of our national society. 2249

Tom Warren- GreenGo pimp for the Pentagon

Tom Warren feigns being a folksy, bearded, hippy ranger-ranch type, and is the perfect Pentagon GreenGo pimp to be in charge of the public's manipulation by the military to put Fort Carson expansion into place in Pinion Canyon. 2090

Call out Alliant Techsystems & CACI too

Other military industries complicit in war crimes in Iraq have offices in Colorado Springs at Academy and Fountain Blvds.   ATK Alliant Techsystems is the leading supplier of Depleted Uranium, which is poisoning the Iraqi populace as well as our soldiers. Ft Carson vets who father children with birth defects will know whom they can hold responsible.   Likewise, CACI International provides "security solutions" to our boys overseas. Celebrated, ie leaked, examples were the torture methods employed at Abu Ghraib.   To be fair, abuses at Abu Ghraib were also administered by Colorado Springs neighbor TITAN CORP, now L-3 Communications Titan Group.   Isn't it amazing that so many culprits of Iraq atrocities are represented in Colorado Springs, at ACADEMY AND FOUNTAIN?! Our visit on Tuesday will be straight into the midst of these callous profiteers.

This September 11 in Colorado Springs

All THEIR plans for continued warfare are predicated on the US as being some sort of grand victim in the world, but it is not. Once the Christian Right Wing claimed that their persecution of Jewish people around the globe was based on their perception that Jews had killed Christ. Now, they substitute Muslims for Jews, and claim that persecution of Muslims is due to Muslims having attacked the World Trade Towers on September 11, 2001. 1805

COS military-industrial complex HQ

Almost all of the defense industry giants earning the largest profits in this war on terror have offices in Colorado Springs. Here's a cluster at the intersection of Academy and Fountain Blvds:     Lockheed Martin, 1150 Academy Park Loop #1     Boeing, 1330 Inverness #2     Northrop Grumman, 1330 Inverness #3     General Dynamics, 1330 Inverness #4     Raytheon, 1330 Inverness     #5     Mitre, 1155 Academy Park Loop     Intecon, 1050 South Academy Boulevard and the ill-reported Iraq War opportunists:     Alliant Techsystems, 1250 Academy Park Loop (depleted uranium)     BAE Systems, 1150 Academy Park Loop (armor)     CACI International, 1250 Academy Park Loop (Abu Ghraib)     L-3 Communications TITAN Group, 1150 Academy Park Loop (Abu Ghraib)

Your dad is going to die of cancer

It's just been reported that the children of soldiers serving in Iraq and Afghanistan are more likely to suffer child abuse. Is this finding not terrible enough for their parents to take heed and refuse to to be ordered there?   All soldiers going to Iraq and Afghanistan doom themselves to exposure to Depleted Uranium. Does it give anyone pause that they are dooming themselves and their families to certain ill-health? They're not making a selfless sacrifice, they're sacrificing their kids. 1526

Where are the offices of those cluster bomb makers?

Israel has a unique defense offered up about the 1,000,000 cluster bombs it spread all over Southern Lebanon. It says that they had to use more dangerous US-made cluster bombs than Israel makes itself due to budgetary and accounting problems. Why? Because $3 billion in US aid is given only to repurchase US made weaponry, so Israel was forced to buy 'inferior' bombs more likely not to explode on impact, but more dangerous to civilians that might pick them up later. Some excuse, right? Blame the US for making you drop bad bombs! But just what American company is making this stuff anyway, and where are their offices at? Try Alliant Techsystems aka AKT, located at 1251 Academy Park Loop #200, Colorado Springs, CO, 80910, (719) 550-0255.   PS- They also are fine makers of depleted uranium weaponry.

Colorado Springs IQ ranking

This weekend's Gazette reported that Colorado Springs ranked 16th among America's brainiest cities.   Although that may not be saying much in light of the US intelligence quotient these days, I still find the story hard to believe. 312

Support the troops

Supporting the troops? What is that?! I don't SUPPORT OUR TROOPS! What a laugh! As the slogan goes: better to support the troops by bringing the troops home! I don't support what the troops are doing. I don't support that they've been put in harm's way. I don't support that they are putting thousands of others in harm's way. 36
