“Suspected” Illegal Immigrants shoot and wound AZ Deputy over “suspected” bales of Marijuana.

Only thing missing, several things actually, are the bales of Marijuana and the suspects. The only thing tying immigration and Smuggling to his shooting is his testimony.
And, really, Pigs LIE. They lie even when they don’t have to lie. But any time they fire a shot, for whatever the real reason is, they’ll LIE about the person at whom they’re shooting. Happens, so it seems, every damn day. They lie to cover their guilt when they arrest somebody for the non-crime of talking back to them. They Lie to cover their use of tasers, beatings while the inmate is handcuffed, and the jailhouse “Suicides” which are quite often the actions of Killer Kops. They have accomplices who regularly accept anything that spews forth from their Lying Pig Snouts. Judges, Prosecutors, the jail doctors (themselves deputized Kops who aren’t going to ever testify against their fellow PIGS.) and the Coroner, also a Pig who won’t testify against his fellow Pigs.
But even lacking anything beyond the word of the PIG, Fox News and all the “Back the Badge ” MORONS who infest this nation are going to chant that it WAS Illegal Aliens, that it WAS marijuana smuggling… Because that’s their level of intelligence. Or lack thereof.

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.

The Horatio Alger and Ragged Dick rags-to-riches stories were Bullshit when they were first published, and still are today. The Mine Workers union song popularized by “Tennessee” Ernie Ford, 16 Tons, says it more realistically.

“you load 16 tons
what do ya get?
Another day older
and deeper in debt
St Peter don’cha call me
cause I can’t go
I owe my soul
to the Company Store.”

The same people who lobby hard against Unions and fair wages, lobby for “Tort Reform” meaning a Landlord’s Lien not only on your possessions, should you default on your lease, but a period of bond-service, debt slavery, should you default.

The Mining corporations, in particular, used this as a way of keeping the workers docile.

The Company Store, just that, the only way you could get groceries or clothing or any other necessities of life was to purchase them from a commissary owned by the Company. Your lodgings were also owned by the Company. A rigged system where you always owed the Boss for the privilege of working for him.

Paid less than you’re forced to spend to survive. Try to leave and you get a warrant for your arrest under the Fugitive Laws, have the equivalent of Dog the Bounty Hunter chasing you down, putting you into the County Prison to work out your debt. In a county that’s owned by, you guessed it, your Loving Employer.

America is sliding backward into that quagmire of Corporate Dictatorship. The saddest part, many of the miners and their families actually eat that crap up with a spoon, the Corporate Lies that they’re working for a better future and for their freedom, and that of their children.

It’s a shameful thing for ONE political party to pay homage to that Blatant Lie. For ALL of the three largest political parties in America, Democratic, Republican, and Tea Parties, to pander to that meaningless CRAP is beyond shameful.

Maybe he simply misspoke, and was off by one letter, they were working for a bItter life.
