North Carolina “considers” compensation for Eugenics Law Victims? Fat Chance

From BBC News
“More than 60,000 Americans were sterilised, many against their will, as part of a eugenics movement that finished in 1979, aimed at keeping the poor and mentally ill from having children. Now, decades on, one state is considering compensation.”
2,900 victims still alive, but the State Legislators are quibbling over paying them because of “the Economy” which their own so-called “conservative” policies destroyed.
These would be the same Legislators who are working on drafting a liberty-destroying Racial Profile Law similar to the Arizona-Alabama-Georgia-whoever is next- “show your papers” law which will cost far more to implement, enforce and ultimately compensate the victims of Police Brutality which WILL result from such racist profiling.
Apparently the stated goal of the Eugenics movement didn’t get accomplished, because there are enough North Carolina residents who are Stupid enough to vote for such racist actions. Probably many of the same ones who voted to keep Eugenics going, it IS, after all, a darling notion of the Nazis, Klan and other TeaParty fellow travelers

Surprise, cop who murdered Oscar Grant set free already

But somebody who fights back, maybe stops the Killer Kop Klansman from murdering him, would still do a life sentence upon capture and conviction, for “aggravated Assault”.
Pigs get to kill anybody they please.
This right on the heels of Alabama, another Historically Racist State, being put on Minority Lockdown status with a Racial Profiling “show your papers” Law.
The punk-ass Minutemen and other Klan groups say it’s not racism, they lie about a lot of other stuff too, so no change there.
They’re not merely Racists, liars for saying their not Racists, but also Cowards because they’re afraid their racist actions might be rightfully perceived as the Racism it truly is.
So, next they’ll be able to demand of any person who isn’t Mr John Q LilyWhite to prove, to their irrational hate filled satisfaction, that he’s legally a citizen.
Or, they’ll just force him to the sidewalk, put a gun in his back and draw the trigger, and if anybody ever prosecutes them for it they’ll get the minimum sentence for “involuntary” MAN slaughter. Just like their Koward Kop Klansman in Oakland.

So, who’s policing the police?

This is one of those items that set my fuzz alarm off.
A British immigration official set his wife up, had her go on a trip to Pakistan, then used his position to put her on a Terror Watch and No-Fly list. For THREE YEARS.

UK immigration officer fired for putting wife on ‘no-fly’ list

Woman stuck for three years in Pakistan

Ever since anti-terrorist “no-fly” lists were implemented in the years following the 9/11 attacks, critics have aired concerns about people being unjustly denied the ability to fly, and about the prospect of government agents abusing the ability to ground travelers.

Now a revelation from the British government suggests those fears aren’t unfounded.

According to the Home Office, the department in charge of internal security in the UK, an immigration officer decided to get rid of his wife by placing her on a “no-fly” list.

The Daily Mirror reported that the officer’s wife traveled to Pakistan to visit relatives, but when she arrived at the airport to come home to Britain, she was told she could not board the plane and officials would not reveal why.

The woman ended up stranded in Pakistan for three years as a result, the Daily Mail reported.

“She obviously thought her husband, being an immigration officer, would be able to find out what was going on,” a source inside the immigration office told the Mirror. “Little did she know it was him who had put her on the list. By all accounts he then had the time of his life.”

What’s more, Home Office officials didn’t discover the fraudulent listing until the immigration agent, whom the British government didn’t name, was put up for promotion and a review of his work uncovered his wife’s name on a no-fly list.

The officer confessed to altering the list and was fired for “gross misconduct,” the Home Office stated.

He reportedly worked at the immigration bureau’s head office near London, where he was part of a group responsible for updating government security lists.

A Home Office spokesman said the British government takes all allegations of misconduct seriously.

“On the extremely rare occasions where this occurs, the strongest action is taken,” the spokesman said.
the story here…

Oh yeah, right. “in those rare incidents” uh-huh.

How ’bout amending that to “on those rare incidents when somebody gets caught abusing the No-check No Fly list system”.

Others famously on the No-Fly list including a little 6 year old girl (why do Right Wingers hate American little girls?) and Bea Arthur, and the guy who played H.R. Puffenstuff.
Two separate incidents where the “middle eastern terrorists” were American Hassidic Jews.
The standard right wing echo of “well, if they would just look more mainstream” …
Meaning, white, anglo-saxon, protestant…

And the bastards want to extend the same rules to bus and train riders.

Difference between College Recruiter and Army Recruiter again

So Maryland Public Schools have been administering the ASVAB tests to students wholesale, as in every kid takes the test. This is the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery. I suppose the Maryland Board of Education didn’t ask very many questions about Uncle Sugar giving them FREE testing materials and evaluations. What a “(Trojan)gift horse”. So the tests have an Opt-Out, option 8, which makes the test from the Army point of view anonymous. There was a loophole in the original agreement. Option 8 was not available. Until now. The Board of Education and the Maryland Legislature wised up a bit.
So the Recruiters were contacting the kids not only with the best scores, but for one Really Damn Important part of what the ASVAB measures… Suggestibility. The willingness to follow orders and be stupidly obedient. Clever, eh? The PentaGoons got a low cost database of the most vulnerable kids, the ones who could be most easily (mis)led to believe any lies the Recruiters give them.

And demonstrates areas where the Targeted CHILD can be most easily (mis)informed about “opportunities”. Where the recruiter knows the kid by name, phone number, school computer network chat and email usernames…

Stuff that Other Child Predators would be rightfully denied access to. “Oh, it’s ok, we’re not seducing the kids with sex or (illegal) drugs, we’re just convincing them to join the Murder Machine and kill other kids in other countries, or, if the Pentagon so chooses, this country as well” (all enemies, foreign and domestic
Think not? The United States Government especially the Army, UNTIL 1911 didn’t grant American Indians citizenship rights, (like being off the reservation without Military Permission, under pain of death, as “renegades”) Which gave the Army open season on any Indian, man woman or child, who didn’t obey the Martial Law imposed by the Conquerors. It’s the reason given for the Murder of Sitting Bull, and for the Little Ouachita Massacre.

My very favorite reason not to trust the Army aside, they’re given through the use of these ASVAB tests a BlackOps Psychological Warfare weapon to use against American KIDS.

Now, are we ready for a far darker side to this, darker even than the perverted seduction of children into the Business of Mass Murder?

It would also show which Children would be most likely to resist. The Database of potential dissidents suddenly grows larger.

Oh, and with the kids’ addresses, phone numbers, social security numbers, (so they can freeze their assets “in case of national emergency”) date of birth and with a few math tools like the statistics analyses used to identify potential al Qa’eda sympathizers in the “liberated” nations of Iraq, Afghanistan and everywhere else in the world.
Using those tools, they could figure out the highest probability of who the “terrorist” kids are and who their closest friends are. Same, in reverse, for the “good” kids, the ones most likely to be seduced.
Kind of an Online Predator Drone aimed directly at American Kids.

Talk about your basic “bringing the War home”.

How much would you care to bet that the Army sues the school board over this decision?

“Separating the Sheep from the Wolves in Afghanistan”

A more polite version of the “Human Shields” crap the Pentagon puts out. Oh, and IDF. And, let’s see, the VietMinh, North Korea, the Boxer Rebellion,Oh Here’s One, the Rebellion in the British Colonies on the eastern coast of North America a couple hundred years ago.
Translating Bullshit to English, using my patented Brother Jonah Pentagon to English dictionary, that comes out as

“We don’t know who the Hell we’re looking for or shooting at, but we’re going to tell you that we’re only killing Terrorists because we’re liars and we think you’re stupid”.

Fellow over to the The Rag Blog named Jonah Raskin used the premise.

My sister, and her husband, both Air Force Sergeants, related something that happened in Kurdistan, in the Northern No-Fly Zone a couple of years before the actual invas… ooops “Liberation, yeah, that’s the ticket..

A USAF Pilot blew away a flock of sheep and consequently a Kurdish Shepherd, maybe more, can’t be sure because the Pilot, with all his hi-tech imaging and targeting doodads and froo-frahs and zu-zus Couldn’t Tell The Difference between Humans and Sheep.

My Sergeant Sister and husband were LAUGHING about it. Ha ha ha, we murdered a person we were supposed to be protecting and think it’s goddamn hilarious!

The Pentagoons and later, George W Bush, made a statement that there were NO instances of USAF pilots firing on ground targets unless they were under attack from those “targets”.

Miss Sergeant made the mistake of telling ME this. OOPS. The joke was that the pilot was “Feeling kind of Sheepish because he was having a “Baaaaaddd day”.

They still, apparently, refuse to believe that Hell-Fire missiles and the Vulcan motorized 50 caliber Gatling guns then standard on their aircraft, which the Air Force boasts will kill everything within a certain zone, somehow didn’t kill the inevitable Kurdish Shepherd. Or Shepherds. They didn’t even mention that guy or those guys. They insist that no humans died in the attack, even though the whole premise of the narrative was that The Pilot Couldn’t Tell The Difference Between Humans And Sheep.

And that Domestic Sheep are never without their shepherds. We bred all the Wild Smart out of them about 40 centuries ago. They can’t even give birth without human intervention, they’re that damn dumb.

For the record, I know my sister from the day they brought me home from the hospital and she hit me with a toy because I wasn’t playing with her.

She might make mistakes but she doesn’t lie to me, especially not when boasting,

George Bush lies so consistently that there’s no possible way an intelligent rational sentient being could ever take anything he says as valid.

The Pentagon is even (gasp) Worse than Bush.

Jonah Raskin takes aim at the “American Innocence” where we can’t actually believe that people whose nations we’re invading and whose people we’re shooting would take offense at that, very strongly dislike the idea and, oh, the Inhumanity, Shoot Back.

There’s a quote from War and Peace, (Warning: the book was written by a Russian ANARCHIST and thus could get you profiled on an AmTrak train and you’ll spend a couple of weeks in jail or worse)

“Why, they’re shooting at me… ME, the one everybody LOVES!”
