Labor Rally In Austin commemorated Fallen Workers

While the "grass roots" TeaBags and their Billionaire Masters were bitching about how badly victimized they think they are if they have to pay workers an adequate wage or compensation for their injuries... or deaths.

For those who think Disabled Workers complain too much about how we’re cast out by society, these are mock coffins carried to commemorate the ones who are now forever silent and can no longer complain about how deregulated workplaces, Union Busting TeaParty “heroes” like Don Blankenship and Scott Walker are literally killing us.
The one killed every two and a half days statistic doesn’t even touch the statistics about wages and health care and other compensation for our work, being cut off because the Koch-suckers in the Tea Party…

Decided that their Bosses, the ones who funded and organized their “grass Astroturf roots” fake revolution are being “victimized” if they get a 4.9 point gain on their investments instead of a 5, and blaming the workers for demanding a fair wage and living standards. We’re not allowed to demand a profit for selling OUR products and service, OUR labor, or even to be paid what it costs us to produce it… for THEM to enjoy.
The TeaBags barely have time to turn from eating the flesh of our babies (figuratively) (ok, literally) long enough to tell us that we’re “bums” for not wanting to support their Parasite Class.

It doesn’t reflect the workers seriously injured, every day, because in Texas, and soon the rest of the nation, “job killing” safety regulations and environmental regulations will be rolled back, even eliminated. The public lands? Hah! fully privatized, or soon will be. The Lazy God-Damned Republican parasites in Ohio voted not only to silence the workers but also to seize the public lands, even the state parks, deny the public access to them while they destroy them to extract every last drop of oil and lump of coal from “their’ domain.

 

 

 

 

Tennessee Firefighters watch house burn down

This is what we can expect when Mayor Lyin’ Hell Rivera and his cronies privatize city services like the thieving bitches are going to tell us at next Monday’s budget announcement.
One of the fire-non-fighters said that it’s an example of “robust Christianity, rather than that sappy effeminate version of Christianity where people help each other”. Well, you KNOW that got my blood pumping. First off, the guy came off as being really insecure about his own masculinity. And rather than coming out of his closet, he tries to “drag” Jesus in with him.
Let’s take it a notch further. Why not have the police be on a for-pay basis? Anybody who can’t afford police protection, too bad so sad. Make it even better, have fully privatized “police” auxiliary groups like the Minutemen patrol, and people who DON’T pay up, well, they must have something to hide, so let’s just drag them down to the court, which of course will be a pay-for-play proposition too, can’t afford an attorney? Too bad, you should have planned ahead and been born rich.

And if bad people dress up like the Private “police” and just break into your house and rob you at gunpoint, then the Real Minutemen Private “police” will investigate, if you pay their fee. What’s that? The Bad Wicked Naughty “pretend” private police took all your money so you can’t pay that fee? Awww… too bad, maybe we can get Glenn Beck or his Zombie followers to lecture you about Christianity. For a fee of course.

Which brings it back to the Other Side, the nonsensical non-secular non sequitur about Jesus telling the closet case Mucho Macho “christian” to torch the place errr Watch it burn to “teach the punk a lesson about paying up”.

(By the way, that’s Rural Tennessee, means the guy whose house they Burned Down errr… watched it burn down, was probably their cousin.)

See, the anonymous Rich Man from the Lazarus parable, he wasn’t in Hell for having no compassion on Lazarus, O good Heavens No!

He was in Hell for being effeminate and not calling the cops and locking his dumpster to keep that bum Lazarus from eating a free meal.

And the Samaritan, helping that fellow who got robbed and beaten and left laying in the ditch, he should have just gone right up to the fellow, kicked him in the face and told him it was his own fault for not hiring the local Minutemen to guard him. Then walk away laughing.

And that Jesus dude, What The Hell?

DYING for people who couldn’t possibly pay Him? Damn, He must have been a really effeminate sissy-boy. Probably had long hair and didn’t wear pants either. Or boots. Bet He had sandals or something sissy like that.

The ConservaTards like Glenn TeaTard Beck and Ms Stupid Sarah are all on the side of the Redneck Assholes who watched one of their cousins get burned out of his house.
From Macho Christian Values.

But that’s what we’re going to have if Mayor Rivera, Doug Bruce and all the others who want to use the “invisible hand” of the free market to take away any kind of Equal Protection from the Poor, and only their Very Rich Parasite Class Cronies will have any kind of city services.

Capital in Action, minimum wage.

Just heard a commercial for a “rent to own” place. One where the payments on a laptop computer totaled two and a half grand for a 450 dollar machine.
A 700 dollar (at the high end price) refrigerator, 159 bux a month for two years, 3816 dollars.
That’s a 400% markup.
So, what’s the Big Deal about Minimum Wage? Why shouldn’t those of us who rent out our labor have to do it not at a profit, not even at a “break-even” rate, but below the actual cost for us to produce our labor? If I were to walk into the Rent-to-own place and demand to only pay $700 for the $700 refrigerator, would I be legitimately allowed to walk out the door, (with a rented dolly and rented pickup of course) with the refrigerator? How about if I only offered $500? Surely he could survive on $20 a month for 2 years.
No? What if I got some Publicly Paid Goons to force him to negotiate on my terms, the way Capital always does when they’re confronted with the silly-ass demands of Labor that the Workers actually be paid an adequate wage?
See, every time this question gets put to the Capitalists, they come off with a duplicate of Squealers Speech from Animal Farm about how the duties of Leadership are so much more strenuous than the duties of Followers that the Pig Leaders deserve, nay, NEED, to have the windfall apples, the milk and to sleep in the farmhouse.

I “trot” that one out a lot because Capitalists seem to believe they own the story. Also the Corporate Welfare aspect of them using the publicly funded police and army to negotiate their coercive labor deals for them.

And to coerce suppliers of the raw materials, like foreign nations who produce Oil, minerals and even produce the Produce (like vegetables, coffee, bananas…)
And then have the balls to say that they worked for their money, and don’t owe the workers anything.

Why, we should be so proud to work for them that we’ll pay them for the privilege.. oh, wait, we already do.

From last Friday’s action, some pictures, some linked commentary

The linked commentary isn’t about the bus lack-of-service, it’s to fellow local activist Loren Wirbel made a short documentary film just showing a FEW of the multi-gazillionaire “defense” plants around town. You know the ones, our Magnificently Superior Business Experts at City Hall made the command decision for us to give them Tax Exemptions that would make Reagan blush, to draw them to a Strategic Location where they were going to come anyway. So they get local services on the local dime far disproportionately to what they actually paid for. It’s bad enough that We The People have to subsidize Corporate Welfare Cheats like Lockheed but they’re also Corporate Warfare Daddy Warbucks types who make their money from other people DYING.
Deathmongers getting a free ride from our Wise and Noble and Ever So Much Better that us City Hall. The rest of us paid our fare, but we don’t get the ride. That’s not fair.
By the way, that last line isn’t complaining, it’s telling the Ayn Rand worshipers that they’re complete Liars when they say stupid shit like they’re actually a Free Market where everybody has a chance. Lying… Cowardly… PUKES. A swarm of Parasitic Slugs in search of a bag of salt.

A LOT of canes and wheelchairs, and a few burnout refugees-from-the-70s Ahem..

Cyrus of course.

Just some of our friends. Notice the preponderance of canes and wheelchairs.
There’s a reason for this, it’s because the other people who depend on the buses were at their jobs waiting their turn to be injured then disposed of.
Timing of the event has to be when buses are running, it’s a Catch-22 of massive proportions.
The bus service abruptly cuts off at shift change.

If you’ll notice, the Bus Service people had their Q&A session scheduled for the middle of the afternoon as well. Intentionally? Orders from Above? Eh.
One of the people who uses the bus to go to and only occasionally FROM work, said “Hey, they didn’t even actually pay attention to the badly disabled, how are they going to handle the Working Poor?”

How indeed. Republicans and Ayn Rand “libertarians” tend to take the short view when it comes to Workers and our rights. If it isn’t happening to them personally, immediately, they just don’t see it happening. If they personally aren’t staring down the barrel of the gun, they’ll simply say “Gun? What gun? I don’t see any gun… nothing to see here, citizens, keep moving, nothing to see..”

Reid asks: Why would Hispanics Vote GOP, GOOPers upset

Like, Jews voting for Hitler. Seriously, it’s THAT obvious. The GOOPers actually are getting all bent out of shape because somebody pointed out that
a) They’ve made official oppression of dark-skinned people a Platform Priority Plank ever since the only Good Republican was assassinated at Ford’s Theater in 1865.
b) A lot of us swarthy folk have actually noticed that fact and
c) Calling people Racists for noticing that their Get Outta Our Party! “big tent” has a “No Coloreds” sign at the door, and the only bilingual sign on the tent is at the back door and says Servants Entrance, is kind of Stupid.
OK so it’s REALLY Stupid.
They gun a man down, actually make him lay down on the concrete face down, THEN shoot him, Oscar Grant in Oakland California, the GOOP notice only that people of color say that it’s a racist crime, and the GOOP do as they always do, and Back The Badge, say that the Colored Fellow deserved to be shot for talking back to Uniformed StormTrooper Thugs who believe and state that they’re “The Law” in their own persons. Rex est Lex, animata et loquens

The phrase is Latin and means, “The King IS the Law, breathing and speaking”

They’ll criticize any “Lefty Elitist” who actually knows the phrase without noticing that the Bush Administration “good ol’ boys” resurrected the phrase to describe their own policies.
I’ll probably be called a Pseudo Intellectual again. See, it’s a matter of Words for them.

When their Might Makes Right “Let them hate us as long as they FEAR us” Shock and Awe policies, both foreign and domestic, was stated by one Gaius Julius Caesar II, known by his Latin nickname for Bootsie, “little boots” Caligula. And his second cousin Nero… Confronted by that, and that it was their own Elitist “intellectuals” in the PNAC who started calling their policy Oderint dum Metuant they get all huffy and try to talk their way out of it, with what they consider insults. They won’t say “Faux Intellectuel” because it’s French and they HATE French People so they pretty much have to invent combinations of words, also called “lying” by those who know Engish, they got burned publicly a few times saying just “intellectual” which means literally “intelligent and educated” (Only the GOOP could consider that an insult).

They keep bouncing these words and catch-phrases around, trying desperately to make one stick so the people they call “The Great Unwashed” when they’re not trying to get them to elect their Faux Intellectuel non-Elite elitist Racist collective Arse back into office. Trying to impress the Working class with phrases like “working class” without mentioning that it would mean that they, themselves, would be automatically the Non-Working class. Social Parasites in other words.

What’s tragic is that they’ve gotten quite a few of the TeaBags to buy into it. Now they believe they’re going to get Blacks and Hispanics to forget that they’re pushing a national law that singles out people who “look” Illegal for special harassment.
They say that handcuffing, imprisoning or even exerting Terrorist Powers over another human being isn’t “punishment” even though it’s codified in Domestic Abuse laws as “Assault.” And when an OTHER “rogue state” does the same thing it’s called Dictatorship and Tyranny. And when elements of what they do to “civil” prisoners here in America, when done to American soldiers held as POWs, is called “Brainwashing” and “Torture” and other assorted nasty war crimes.
And make demands that any Americans captured in foreign lands while breaking the laws of those lands, like John McCain during the illegal bombing of Hanoi, be treated humanely and under the Geneva Convention.
People arrested BY those Americans, like every person at Guantanamo and other Torture Centers, are classified as “unlawful combatants” and denied any such Geneva Convention protections. So are “civil” Prisoners right here in the United States. Where, if the GOOPers get their nasty way, being brown of skin, or accented of speech, will be a punishable-without-trial “offense”

But Hispanics and Blacks and Civil Liberties minded individuals of ANY so-called “race” are supposed to blow that off as not being Racist and that anybody who DOES mention it is hysterical, or delusional, or paranoid or some other version of the word “insane”.

But that’s not Racist or Elitist in any kind of way. Noticing it and reporting it is what’s “elitist and racist”. We have the word of several Elitist Hate Speech liberal arts majors who are employed, at an annual salary of more than a Construction worker makes in a lifetime of REAL work, to pretend to be “just common working folks”.

Rush Limbaugh, Sarah Palin, Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck, you know the ones.

Every bit as much “Real Workers” as Ronald Reagan or John Wayne or George Bush were “Real Cowboys” or “Real Soldiers”.

But they’re going to lecture those of who actually ARE working class on how we’re supposed to act and speak and write.

And whine and snivel about “Liberal Hate Speech”.

No sale. Ain’t buyin’ y’alls hog. Sell it to somebody else. Maybe to that “Exclusive White Gentlemen’s Club” you call a Party.
They were dumb enough to buy that shit about how they’re so much better than everybody else.

Doug Bruce on video mouthing off about “illiterate peasants”

When Rivera shot off his own foot saying something similar, at least he wasn't running for Mayor (can't, term limits)
To be fair, the “Illiterate Peasants” he was referencing weren’t the Bus Riding Public who incidentally are the Working Class who support him and the rest of the Parasite Class. They’re seasonal labor Farm Workers who quite literally feed his fat piggy ass and those of his Parasite Class comrades. The ones who, like him, feel that the bus service and the people who ride the bus to WORK, mostly, are extraneous and needn’t be considered. One attitude spills into the other and then back again.
“5000 Illiterate Peasants”, compared to your similar indictments of people riding the bus? When Mayor Rivera said something similar, the “illiterate peasants” with whom I was riding the bus and discussing this same issue (Before the Big Purge of bus service) were a retired lady, with really bad health problems that come from aging, and a SCHOOLTEACHER who is blind from birth. I personally can’t drive because of my neurological problems, similarly, from birth. Mayor Lyin’ el had said that only bums and winos ride the bus. You could tell right there that he wasn’t running for re-election.

Doug Bruce and his accomplices at “Citizens for Accountable Leadership” who aren’t “accountable” enough to put their Leaders Name (Doug Bruce) on their corporate letterhead even as a member of the board, are petitioning for a “strong executive mayoral city government”.

And it’s just a coincidence that Bruce, Former Prosecutor, is rumored to be wanting another run for Mayor.
Of COURSE it’s just a coincidence. Doug Bruce would never lie, unless of course he needs to lie or just wants to lie. Nor would any of his Accomplic errr I mean “Associates” yeah, that’s the ticket, Associates.

By the way, Doug, if somebody is reading this to you… I don’t like cops in any form, especially the Prosecutor type. I feel strongly that as a Prosecutor you would by default have covered many a crime committed “in the line of duty” by your fellow pigs.
Especially as you feel that certain Racist Urge to dismiss whole segments of the people who work to support your system as “Illiterate Peasants” the way you did the farm workers.

And, Brucie-baby, when I was riding the bus that day, Illiterate Peasant schoolteacher was on her way to work, Illiterate Peasant Senior Citizen lady was on her way from one of the Senior Centers which you’re in the process of closing, to her home. SHE was worried because your shadow-government was cutting Saturday bus service off at 5 PM on the route she rides from her home to Church on Saturday evenings. Correction, (damnation, only an ILLITERATE PEASANT could possibly make such an error… RODE the bus to her church services… because you and your Noble, Intellectually Superior Ilk managed to get Saturday bus services cut off completely.)

The third Illiterate Peasant, moi meme sui, who speaks three languages and has a larger English vocabulary than YOU do, was on my way to the doctors office. Many faux literati feel the urge to “incorrect” me on the use of “doctors” instead of “doctor’s” as the possessive of the noun “doctor” but that’s just an error. On their part.

Mr Bruce, I was going to get treatment for an on-the-job injury that has basically left me crippled. Yes, I’m one of those “Illiterate Peasants” who do or rather DID manual labor at slave wages under the Capitalist System you endorse so fervently. And by the way, I have in my extensive Work History actual Farm Labor. Something your porky sorry Parasite ass isn’t going to do unless you’re forced to do it.

The part which crippled me wasn’t the injury itself, severe though it was. No, it was the 14 YEARS of denial of health care by the Corporate Medical System which you also endorse, fervently.

Socialist Subsidized Medicaid saved my Left Foot.
Corporate health “care” protocols and policies completely destroyed my Right foot.

But, in your Fascist Corporate Welfare vision, that makes me a Bum and an “illiterate Peasant”. You say it to one of my comrades, or to 5000 of them, doesn’t matter, it works out the same for me. Your choice too, by the way, because you’ve made similar statements of solidarity with the Police State.

In a way, Mr Bruce, I can almost hope for you to succeed in your endeavours. That way you can further hasten the destruction of your system. Your policies harmed Capitalism much more than any Communist or Anarchist revolutionaries ever could.

I would endorse the further destruction of your system save for one thing… well, let’s call it 5000 things, actually people…. the Bus Riders and Other Working PEOPLE you dismissed as being “Illiterate Peasants”. And every other person of limited means who depends on at least a fragment of Civilization to survive, so they can look out for their own survival.

People like Heather, who unlike YOU or any of your friends, actually WORKS, she’s a waitress at a restaurant which stays open late, across town from our neighborhood. She depends, as does her husband and their three children, on the Bus System being an active running proposition.

In reality, Mr Bruce, so does EVERYBODY in town.
I know, you feel that the PEASANTS in the construction and manufacturing and service and agricultural sectors are disposable and you’d rather do without us. But you can’t, you see. Neither you nor any of your Elitist Pig Comrades possibly could survive.
Oh, I suppose you COULD, if you were to grab enough ambition from God only knows where, and learn how to do Physical Labor for your own benefit.

Funny how the “Elitists” really aren’t all that “Elite”.
Too bad your “elite” friend Nozolino isn’t actually going to be in a Real Penitentiary for your shared crimes. Then he could spout off about how much better he feels himself to be to Working Class people all day long… or really, only as long as it takes for him to piss off one of them, JUST ENOUGH for the Real Worker to decide to teach him a few Physical lessons on “superiority” and “elitist doctrine”.

He and you might just get such a lesson delivered on the Outside, though. And your Pig comrades in the C.S. Gestapo Department won’t be able to protect you. Nor will your “friend” with the closet homo-erotic Gun Fetish.

“yeah, get out of the car… bring your guns, we’ll take them too”.
Anger isn’t an entirely unproductive and useless emotion.

Sometimes it can be channeled to the end of removing useless Parasites like yourself from any position where you might Screw Up our society any more than you already have.

“What would taxing the predatory oil, gas and coal companies mean to YOU?”

If they had asked the question honestly…. But they didn’t and don’t. By the way, that means the aforementioned Predatory Oil, Gas and Coal companies are still fighting, with the full blessings of Washington Insiders, any regulation on their practices or repayment of the debts they owe.
 
In a laughable smear against anybody who stands in the way of their Rape of the ecology and economy of the entire world, they have one Highly Trained Goof-Ball barking like a good little slave-doggy about the “Washington insiders” who are allegedly not deep in Oil Company pockets. I guess, you know, that buying the air time for these commercials over the past 5 years or so of this particularly sleazy campaign, was less expensive than actually reforming their industries. It paid off big for Exxon, which didn’t pay a dime of income tax last year on BILLIONS of dollars of mostly Taxpayer Subsidized profits.

Oh, who am I kidding, they owe ALL their profits to government intervention and deliberate stifling, at the Government level, of any kind of Sane, Reasonable and technologically sound alternatives to their slash-and-burn economic model.

Not giving the Rich Pigs even MORE welfare and special advantages would be “Socialism” and “Marxist-Leninist Bolshevik Redistribution of Wealth”

Meanwhile, the Working Class, hammered by bills on the wars that benefit only the Rich, hammered by an economy so broken by the economic model of Predatory Capitalism that they can’t afford to keep their homes, lose any job security they thought they had, including the all-important Health Care benefits, Hammered by anti-Union Anti-Worker use of Government Force, paid by those Americans who actually PAY taxes, unlike, say, Halliburton KBR or Exxon Mobil, literally being forced to work at Slave Wages which don’t even cover the cost for us to Produce Our Labor…

And then hounded by the new class of Vagrancy Laws that make debt by individuals a Crime, make homelessness a Crime, make joblessness a Crime…

The TeaBags and other Loyal Lap-dog types aren’t going to bark one squeak of protest over such an arrangement. They sure do scream like they’re being eviscerated, slowly, with a broken pair of nail clippers, if any restrictions on Corporate Predation or any payment demanded by the People from the Corporate Predators of the monstrous debt THEY owe is even quietly proposed.

“Get Government off our (Corporate Masters’) backs!” they whine.

Even though their Corporate Masters are on OUR backs, literally supported by OUR labor…

But you’ll never hear a TeaBag saying something like “Get the Corporate Welfare Government and Heavily Bribed Police, Judicial, and Legislative Government Enforcers off the backs of the Workers!”
