Gun ownership does nothing to protect Freedom- So stop spreading the big lie that it does, Right Wingers!

The biggest lie of the Right Wingers in our country is that their gun ownership somehow is protecting Freedom and Liberty. Of course, this lie is straight corollary with the dullard jingoist notion that US governmental militarism and the bloated US military are supposedly together protecting 'our' Freedom and Liberty, when that is certainly not the case. The contrary! However, the ditto brained Right Wingers seem to think that if they repeat their lies often enough, some how the evidence will back them up. However, countries like Iraq, Saudi Arabia, and Yemen have high personal amounts of gun ownership and quantity of guns around, too. Are they living in Freedom? Who could claim that? Freedom and Liberty are related by Peace and Economic and Social Security, nothing of which we in the US have that much of these days.

The irony of seeing a wage slave dressed up as the Statue of Liberty

...Every year at this time we see a motley crew of bedraggled lower echelon wage slaves forced to be circus clowns in the name of what???? 'LIBERTY'? I don't think so! It simply would be more dignified and more real about how these poor unfortunate souls must actually feel if they were dressed up in giant fried chicken suits instead, wouldn't it? YES, only in the US do we get slaves dressed up as Statues of Liberty! To associate LIBERTY with the private company called Liberty Tax Services or US society is totally insane. Probably half these poor types are one step from sleeping in the streets and begging outside of Walmarts... I feel so sorry for them, and how they actually have come to represent wage slavery USA more than any real thing called LIBERTY. There is no way I'd ever use this so-called 'Liberty Tax' service at all.

Man arrested in Cambridgeshire England for planning to shout at Royals

Not "shoot" as in physically harm people, if you count Royals as actual people, but to speak in a loud voice. The Cambridge PIGS have held him without bail to prevent the "Rebirth of Ostentatious Wealth" ha-ha, we got Ours, too bad about yours, which we took from you and that's how we got 'ours' in the first place" let-them-eat-cake Publicly Funded Welfare for the richest family on the Planet, from being "disrupted" Her Majesty's Police Forces are traitors to their class just like any of the other Lackeys who lick the Royal Boots. So are the Crown Courts. Just like ours cops right here in the so-called "Land of the Free"... Free to obey, free to grovel to the ostentatious displays of the wealth of thieves and murderers. That's 20 MILLION pounds, the most expensive wedding on record. All of it on the public dimesixpence while the House of Lords, none of whom earned their titles, strip bread from the mouths of children, medicine from the ill and the very right to raise your voice from anybody who would protest. The professional Lackeys who were invited to the wedding raised THEIR voices in protest against the rights of the People. Apparently shouting is only allowed if it's in support of the Very Rich Rulers, like what the retarded-ass TeaBags do here. Raise your voice AGAINST them and their leaders will have you dragged from their presence by the Publicly Funded Police like Sarah Palin did while proclaiming that nobody should sit down or shut up. Unless they "heckled" Her Royal Majesty of course. Or Rand Paul having his Koward Kentucky Komrade tea-bag THUG patrol, three of them, attack a woman, Lauren Valle, for heckling him, while hundreds of other Tea Bag Koward Kentucky Komrades stood around to make sure nobody interefered with their fun. And still say they only stand for Freedom. Just a reminder that they pretend to be Revolutionaries against the same family that had Charlie Veitch imprisoned without bail not for exercising his free speech, but PLANNING to exercise his Free Speech, guaranteed in a bill of rights centuries older than our own. Our own Bill of Rights, incidentally, was rejected by a majority of the so-called "Founding Fathers" who the TeaTards idolize and fantasize fellating them. Just, you know, sayin' is all. There isn't a single one of the TeaTards who issued so much as a squeak of protest at the St Paddie's Day Massacre nor at another Freedom of The People Peaceably To Assemble rally which the Colorado Springs Gestapo violently suppressed at the start of Operation Iraqi Freedom To Obey and Fellate George Bush. They don't stand for Freedom and never once did. I saw one the other day wearing his retard-hat with the snake-flag on it, and on his tee-shirt saying Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death The last time I had seen his retarded ass was when he was cheering for the Colorado Springs PIG department beating up on mostly elderly and disabled people. Yeah, real Heroic that you'll

Could it be, Olbermann fired by FOX?

Since the following chain of logic is true, very possible and knowing the "ethical" standards of the American CorporaFascist Empire therefore very probable. Quote:November 05, 2010 12:14 PM What Role Did Comcast Play in Keith Olbermann's Suspension?--UPDATED By karoli There is a double standard at work with regard to Keith Olbermann's suspension, not only between other personalities appearing on MSNBC as commentators, but also at the very top level of the food chain. Comcast now owns MSNBC after their acquisition was completed earlier this year, despite protestations from many of us. A look at campaign finance disclosures for several organizations shows that Phil Anschutz, chairman of Comcast major shareholder and content partner with Comcast, donated large sums of money to the First Amendment Alliance, (How very Orwellian, have we wound back the clock to "1984"? Does the Legal Staff for the "First Amendment Alliance work only for the Rich? What a foolish question, of course they won't defend anybody else's freedom of speech -Jonah) one of the largest outside groups targeting Democrats in the 2010 midterm elections. The Anschutz Corporation, wholly owned by Phil Anschutz, gave $50,000 on 9/24/2010 to the First Amendment Alliance. The two candidates targeted by the First Amendment Alliance? Jack Conway and Michael Bennet. Keith Olbermann gave to Jack Conway's campaign along with Raul Grijalva and Gabrielle Giffords. In addition, the Anschutz family donated $169,900 to Republican candidates and committees during the 2010 election cycle, according to Open Secrets. Additionally, Comcast Corporation has contributed $125,000 to the Republican Governors' Association in the 2010 cycle (as of 9/30/2010). There's been a lot of chatter about MSNBC policy, and whether Olbermann should have gotten advance approval for his donations to Jack Conway, Raul Grijalva(Targeted, literally, by the Neo-Nazi group "the Minutemen" for taking a stand against their Racist anti-Immigrant policies, they fired shots at his office and have repeatedly threatened him, along with Murdering the American Child Briseña Flores in her home because her surname is Spanish) and Gabrielle Giffords on October 28th. The policy I've seen reads like this: NBC and MSNBC TV require permission of the president of NBC News. (MSNBC.com is a joint venture of NBC Universal and Microsoft.) "Anyone working for NBC News who takes part in civic or other outside activities may find that these activities jeopardize his or her standing as an impartial journalist As opposed to an "entertainer" edit by Jonah because they may create the appearance of a conflict of interest. But not Corporate donations nor the contributions from the Elitist Scum who effectively ARE the corporation- Jonah Such activities may include participation in or contributions to political campaigns or groups that espouse controversial positions. (even though Mr Olbermann made huge sums of Profits for MSNBC by celebrating or opposing very controversial positions) You should (but not "Must" -Jonah) report any such potential conflicts in advance to, and obtain prior approval of, the President of NBC News or his designee." (who insist they have no such moral obligations, far less legal -Jonah) That language clearly says "should" and not "must". Further, anyone

Where’s the independence on Independence Day?

The Fourth of July is celebrated as America's 'Independence Day' but where's the independence? Sure, you're free to get drunk, barbecue up some meat product on the grill, shoot fireworks off dangerously, and run your mouth about why one just supposedly has to vote for McCain or Obama, BUT... Yes, but where's the independence in Independence Day? If you have low expectations don't worry about it OK? But some of us do think about it some and we're still working on obtaining Independence for ourselves, our families, and our communities. There's really little to celebrate yet. Look, Independence Day was a flawed day from the very beginning, and just like our many other very flawed national holidays like 'Columbus Day, Thanksgiving, etc., it just lacks real substance big time. Can't you sense that? The Fourth of July is just a very shallow celebration, with the flag waving and all. Americans do not have independence. No, we have no more independence than a group of serfs under the King once did. We are merely blinder and more ignorant than the serfs were, it seems. We live in a top down authoritarian society, and our lives are ordered around to the most minuscule detail. The not so hidden hand of authoritarianism is everywhere, and it tells us how to think, and what to do. Many of the more daft of us don't see it much though. We're too busy earning the bread, shopping for bread, and shitting to notice how society is actually arranged. We don't quite know why so many of us are miserable? We see the guns, we see the orders, we see the lack of respect, but many of us just can't seem to figure anything out. So some go to church, some take dope, some just smoke their cigarettes. Some sell Mary Kay, some sell real estate, some sell Amway, or do Ebay. Some play the lottery, some play Bingo, some shoplift for their gambling instead. Indian Casino anybody? All this supposedly is a sign of liberty and independence, according to the pundits! Watch TV, play public radio on KRCC... you'll see what I am saying. They'll do their puff pieces about the Fourth. But seriously? Where's the independence on Independence Day? I don't see it. It's just not there.
