Rand Paul and the US political myth about the existence of an antiwar US Conservative Republican

Rand Paul, like his dad, Ron Paul, has built his stature up with the constant myth amongst so many US gullibles, that he is supposedly somehow Mr. Antiwar! But it is all skin deep this picture of what Hard Right Rand is really about. This Business Insider report Inside Rand Paul’s Overnight Transformation Into A Pro-Israel Defense Hawk kind of spills the beans about this prospective Republican candidate for President next election time. Rand Paul is no more antiwar than Barack Obama and his cabinet are. To believe that he might be so is akin to believing in the Tooth Fairy.

So, “White Rule”, “Wait wait”, “Your Superior” and “I’m Not sure” are apparently the same troll

Why would one person need three computers at the same College Library in D.C. to publish his pseudo-conservative bullshit? What, are the Right Wing that piss-poor they can’t afford separate IP addresses?
Of course, WhiteWaitSuperIorSure, if I wrote as consistently badly as you do I’d take measures to hide my Identity too.

A mother’s day message for the RepubliKlan

I mean, aside from your party lock step voting to cancel Medicare and Social Security for your own mommas as well as ours… nice to see your penchant for Human Sacrifice is still strong, except of course that you’re not going to actually sacrifice YOURSELVES.
But you know how y’all like to say, especially the Libertarian faction and TeaPotties? That you might not agree with what we say but you’ll fight to the death to defend our right to say it?
So, when Lauren Valle was stomped down for criticizing your hero Rand Paul, by three of his Koward Kentucky Komrades, with hundreds of other KKK disciples of “liberty” standing around to make sure nobody interrupted their sick sadistic fun and Rand Paul himself, nobly of course refusing to either “fight to the death” or even tell his chickenshit disciples to stop?
Yeah, that one. And of course Sarah Palin telling the people not to sit down and not to shut up while she was having the Police arrest people and violently drag them from her rally because they didn’t sit down or shut up?
Of course y’all didn’t even do anything to protest that, did you? I can understand that you’re AFRAID of your Komrades because, you know, when you get in your little ol’ Posse you can be pretty vicious.
But to stand up and LIE about how much you’ll risk to fight for “freedom” or “liberty” well…
Yo Mommas must have been so very proud of you.
Until you killed them and ate them….

Ballot Caging and the real difference between D and R

The R’s don’t want people to vote. More people politically active, means they lose. Very simple.

You might ask yourself

Self, what’s the worst that could happen?

What’s the difference between a D and an R?

What real difference does it make if large groups of

people are disenfranchised?

Why not ask the R’s?

I mean, they’re the ones who spend lots of effort making sure people don’t vote, right?
Like County Clerk Williams and his lapdog Kathryn Young making sure people who didn’t vote in Nov can’t vote in Apr. Mr Williams was elected in a mudslide last anointed High Priest of Republican Vote Suppression, and made sure as many people as possible couldn’t vote.
It’s his “official” job to do the opposite, but since he only represents Republican Voters the Official Version went out the window.
One of the things his term-limited former fuhrer Bob Balink (doesn’t that sound a lot like a Quayle?) did was move the Polling Place on the Westside, a strong Democratic district, across the Great Barrier Highway, to a warehouse district as far removed from a bus stop as you can get in this town, the only way you could get to it is up two streets, 21st street and Busch, UP A STEEP HILL with no sidewalks. Does that sound much to you like they actually wanted for instance DISABLED people to vote, especially when they were trying to rig the election in favor of people who want DISABLED Americans to just curl up and die? Hmmmm…
How many people who have no difficulty walking actually go by their polling place weeks or days early to make sure that nobody sneaked away with their polling place, which WAS conveniently located in the middle of the population center of the West Side and a short block away from a bus stop?

Miss Johnnie and I didn’t find out until election day in the afternoon. Fortunately at that point we had just gotten a car. I would have a great deal of difficulty navigating up that hill, Miss Johnnie would never have made it, somebody in a wheelchair would never have made it… somebody just getting off work, going to the West Middle School location and discovering the neat little signs that Boob Balink had put up saying “Ha ha, we SCREWED you out of an opportunity to vote, too bad so sad, you should have been born rich like the only people I represent were!”

Elections are held in April and November. Many people unfamiliar to Colorado Springs wouldn’t know that there is a strong statistical chance of SNOW in April and definitely in November. Can you imagine trying to get up that hill in the snow, especially with the usual weekday traffic of Redneck Ignorant Asshole Republicans driving by in their SUVs thinking that having a gas guzzler entitles them to every square inch of the road, every drop of oil in the world and every drop of blood from the people who object and the soldiers ordered to put down those “insurgents”? They’re the ones who think Disabled Americans don’t deserve to live in the first place. Their crackwhore mommas taught them that.

So now, if you missed your shot at voting in November, Bob-alongs’ appointed Heir to the Throne Williams and his lap-dog sellout Kathryn Young, get to suppress your vote once more by simply refusing to provide you with a ballot.

But, say some, marking a D instead of an R or simply not voting altogether, what could possibly go wrong with that?

Yeah, contrary to the whining and sniveling and pure racist hate speech the Tea Potty shrieks out about Obama, he did in fact continue Mr Bush’s Crime Spree,

But think… what if there had been no war for Mr Obama to take over the management thereof?

The West Side rejected the Tea Party Murderous Hate Freaks in November.
Even WITH the RepubliKlan repression and vote suppression (unofficial of course, but officially they didn’t arrange the murders of the Kennedy’s, Martin L King, 6 people in Tucson, Two people in Arivaca Arizona, Bill Sparkman in Kentucky, two more AMERICANS in Knoxville, the shooting at the Holocaust Museum… or the beating of Lauren Valle by Klan members for the benefit and amusement of Rand Paul)

Hillary Free speech part two

While she was speaking… she had a 71 year old Former CIA analyst BEATEN by Capitol Pigs for “heckling” her… not by screaming denunciations, but by quietly standing up and turning his back on her LIES. Like Sarah Palin having people beaten and arrested for not sitting down and not shutting up while she was lying HER ass off about “don’t sit down and don’t shut up” You must to sit quietly while the Fuhrer speaks, then applaud at appropriate moments! Alle Sieg HEIL!

The Police, as always, happy to jump people they consider weak and helpless.

When they go looking for victims of their brutal cowardice, they have a hiring preference for those who are elderly, handicapped or Children

Julian Assange is being vilified, now, under orders from Ms Hillary, as “not a Journalist”. Not your mere personal insult, it’s a charge led by her old enemies/friends at FOX news, their screed being that “Commoners” such as for instance, ME, shouldn’t be allowed First Amendment Protection for words published on the Internet, the reasoning bing that it’s written, not speech, but not “Press” because we’re not an established News outlet. While they can pump up their Ignorant Audience with lies, and goad them through hatred into doing senseless acts of violence against “liberal terrorist traitors” like Rand Paul ordering his goons to beat down Lauren Valle for “heckling” him. or Jared Loughner slaughtering yet another 9 year old American child in Arizona.

The Right Wing Thugs who did that to Ms Valle demanded SHE apologize to THEM. For what? Smearing their smoothly polished Jackboots with her blood? See a pattern here?

The ones shouting the loudest about “Freedom” are the worst hypocrites, a PIG Pantheon that includes virtually every elected or appointed public official in America, Most times it’s done in Jail Cells, or the back of a patrol car, far from any civilian witness. Like what they’re doing with Bradley Manning.

The Pentagon makes a huge propaganda gain by calling him a “weakling” but they always have a 5-man PIG crew of MPs to move him, shackled and drugged.

That’s the way the Hypocrite Cowards know how to fight.

What will they do next, murder him the way they did Crazy Horse, shackled hand and foot, then bayoneted in the kidney, literally stabbed in the back, for “trying to escape”?

Their Pig hypocrisy is nothing new and pervades their system from top to bottom and all points in between.

The Wikipedia page for one of my references has an annotation on it that it might not be “Objective” enough, because it states the obvious that the MinuteCoward “American Defense” racist militia did the murder.

Shawna Forde, the leader of the group, was found guilty yesterday of the murder, her accomplices are awaiting trial. This in spite of the Arizona Police attempting to minimalize the crime by saying that Raul Flores, father of 9 year old Brisenia, was a “suspected” drug dealer. The Pigs rallied behind their Racist Comrades, as usual.

A thuggish murder of Queen’s English

Christine O’Donnell is being audited on her campaign spending, as well she should. She made a devil’s deal, sold the remaining fragments of her soul on a bet that she could become a Congress-critter. The Korporate Kampaign-fund Kartel fronted her undisclosed amounts of bread. But she didn’t follow their rules. There’s a quotation from Shakespeare, from the funeral of Falstaff “this huge hill of flesh, this breaker of horses backs, … he was never, yet, a breaker of promises, he will give the devil his due.” She’s not given the devil his due. Devil says, look, all you have to do is occasionally chant “9-11!” or “Tax and Spend Liberals” and we’ll do the rest, for lack-of-gods-sake don’t try to write your own speeches or ad lib anything, because you’re a moron.” Did she listen? No, she did NOT listen. There’s another quotation from a drill sergeant, “it’s impossible for the ears and the mouth to work at the same time, you’re either listening or running your head.”

Woman couldn’t possibly shut the hell up long enough to listen. So, now she’s being audited on her spending. And says it’s Thug Tactics

This from a woman who is paired up with a party that has as a big plank in its platform “English Only”. As in using government power and other publicly owned resources to compel people to only speak English in public places, commerce, and in the wildest dreams of the Extremists who are pushing it, in private conversations in the home. (Because supposedly raising a child in a multilingual environment (even though people who actually study linguistics say otherwise) have difficulty learning the English language in school.)

Now, English is my first language. I’m not an accomplished Linguist yet, that takes fluency in at least 5 languages. But I am adept in English. And I can positively say that the Tea Party, of whom Ms O’Donnell is a member, really don’t speak English. They rail against Public Education for a reason, several more sinister reasons but the one I laugh about the most is because they don’t want Public School elementary students outshining their own Hoam Skewel and Private Academy students.

And they’re not really good at speaking English. Or writing English. Before the squealing whines of “Elitism!” come cascading from the Far Right, I should point out that it’s THEIR elitist notion that teaching and learning and speaking and writing Only One Language is somehow superior to being able to speak and read and write several.

Because the English language, and the English RACE, are ever so superior to the Peasants who make up the rest of the world.

Now, Thug, Thuggish, Thuggery, all stem from not an English word but an Urdu word, for a cult in India and Pakistan who sacrifice randomly selected people to their gods.

Investigations into ones financial malfeasance (alleged) aren’t “thug tactics”.

Let’s see if, in the interest of education, we can provide Ms O’Donnell and her Demented Demonic Disciples with a few examples of Thug-like behavior, Strangling victims from behind in the crowded marketplaces of the Indus Valley.

Ok, so that’s pretty specific, there are some other behaviors that have taken on the name Thug Tactics

Let’s see now, how about a politician being asked questions about who is financing that politician and the political party represented thereby, Not Thug Tactics. When the supporters of that politician seize the questioner, hold her down and stomp on her face… THUGS.

The customary way of describing the incident, not ordered by Ms O’Donnell but by her close friend and fellow Tea Party THUG Rand Paul, was that it was a three-on-one assault. That fails to take into account the large crowd of Other Tea Party THUGS who were standing around making sure nobody interrupted their comrades’ fun.

Fellow Tea-Party “rock star” Don Blankenship using hired goons to back him up, as he assaulted a reporter asking (still unresolved) questions about his MURDER of 29 coal miners through maintaining an unsafe work environment. Or, as he probably chuckles to his accomplices “created 29 job openings” ha ha ha…

THUG tactics. But then, mine operators have a very long history of using Thug Tactics and hired goon squads to “negotiate” with workers. Nothing to see, citizen, keep moving, nothing to see…

Sarah Palin, fellow “rock star” of the Thug Party errr I mean “Tea” Party, yeah, that’s the ticket…

Stands on a stage telling her Demented Disciples “don’t sit down and don’t shut up!” and simultaneously having Publicly Funded Police Goon Squads violently drag people out of Her Royal Presence for daring to not sit down nor to shut up.

THUG TACTICS.

Since apparently Ms O’Donnell actually DID piss away her Masters’ money, yeah, she needs to be audited on it. So do her Masters. And the rest of the Political Prostitutes who took their money.

Boehner says “Mandate to Kill the Disabled! Hooray!”

So, what was the first thing the Korporate Kash Klub putting on their agenda today? Destroy any hope of actual Health Care.
Why don’t the Republicans take out their 2nd Amendment Specials and just shoot any disabled people they see on the street? It’s not because they don’t want to hurt us. They showed that at every one of their TeaBag rallies, with their willingness to KILL 120 Americans every single day, and that’s just those of us who had Corporate Health Insurance. The rest of us die undiagnosed and uncounted. Miss Johnnie got a quote on health “insurance” yesterday, 485 dollars a month at the lowest, and that’s with a $5k Deductible. That’s three weeks pay at minimum wage, the Minimum Wage the Right Wing want to abolish in favor of paying us an even smaller fraction of what it costs us to work for their profit.
So if it’s not an unwillingness to kill us, then the reason they don’t do it directly is really obvious. They’re too God-damned YELLOW. Any speeches they want to make about compassion or not wanting to hurt the cripples, are bullshit. It’s trying to make themselves look good while they’re (temporarily, until they can do it somewhere out of the public eye) backing their shit down.
The Rand Paul action last Monday, where they ganged up on Ms Lauren Valle for DARING to question His Royal Highness about the Korporate Kash Klub backing he receives.
There were Kentucky COPS there watching, but were the coward bastards immediately arrested? Nope. Pigs take up for Other Pigs. It’s typical behavior for their Cowardly Sort.
They made a big issue of Terri Schiavo, said they had offered to pay her long term care forever, but those of us who aren’t rich or aren’t ripe for being a Public Example of their Fake Charity, like Martha Jamie Helton Brown, we’re simply told to fuck off and die.

Mrs Brown was denied health care the same way Boehner wants to continue denying health care, forever, and his Tea Party backers are cheering at the prospect of Killing More Americans.
They sure do love them some American-killin’.
It’s why they took automatic weapons to their Hate Rallies, they were hoping for yet another excuse to Kill Americans.

Fundamentalists might heed a Catholic, or not

But some will be swayed by people who only speak English, and that not much goodly, (bad joke and I’d have to go to a seance and ask Shakespeare if it’s actually grammatically correct, which leads to==>>) but will insist that Shakespearean/Jacobite English mistranslates “Thou Shalt Not Kill” when the original Hebrew grammar translates as “Thou Shalt Not MURDER”, that killing human beings on ones own initiative is Very Bad, Wicked, Naughty and (rightfully at that) considered “murder” and a crime, sin and a flaw in the basic working of the Human Soul.
Whereas doing it at the command of the King (basically because somebody else told you to do it and you’re too weak-minded to question his authority to demand such actions) is actually ordained by God as being righteous.
Thus somebody who also doesn’t speak any language other than English, and that poorly, like the fire-non-fighters from Tennessee recently made “Conservative” icons, can also insist that since the Shakespeare/King James English translated Ancient Hebrew badly, BECAUSE SOMEBODY ELSE WHO SPEAKS NEITHER jACOBITE ENGLISH NOR ANCIENT HEBREW TOLD HIM SO AND HE’S TOO WEAK MINDED TO QUESTION THAT PERSONS INTERPRETATION OF TWO LANGUAGES WHICH THAT PERSON DOES NOT SPEAK, WRITE OR ACTUALLY READ…

permits him to commit Arson-by-default by refusing to extinguish a potentially fatal home fire even though he had the equipment, training and a job which gives him the actual duty to extinguish potentially fatal home fires.

Also support executions and wars as being valid because Other People with government jobs said so.

Libertarian me-first values exemplified by face-stomping teabag Brownshirts

Move over RNC Kicker, Rand Paul preemptive-linebackers Tim Profitt and cohort Mike Pezzano have been identified as the “lead stomper” and protester-wrangler of yesterday’s face-stomping video. MoveOn activist Lauren Valle was holding a sign meant to highlight Kentucky senate candidate Paul’s corporate fealty when she was tackled to the ground by the teabag duo. Profitt’s index finger pronounced, as he stepped off atop her head, that he meant the girl to read his Tea Party button literally: Don’t Tread on ME.

Maybe now is not the time to wonder if George Orwell has yet been wrong about anything. “If you want a vision of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face – forever.”

Muslim Mommas never cry and other heinous lies

What got me started on this offering was a TV show on at midnight, only lasted (from my perspective, because the channel got changed quickly) for about two minutes. The show was about 9/11 survivors. One of them said “That’s the difference between America and everybody else… in America when there’s great tragedy and danger people band together and help each other out”. So that means the only people on the entire surface of the planet where people actually have Human Feelings is in America, and everybody else is incapable of actual humanity. Subhumans in other words. Nothing Racist about that? No Religious bigotry either, like when a Muslim preacher orating at a funeral says the deceased is in Paradise, that’s supposedly cold-hearted brainwashing and encouraging the other members of the congregation to do suicide bombings.

When a sold-out Christian Priest, military OR civilian, says that a fallen American soldier is in Heaven, that’s of course not anything to do with glorifying the war that killed the soldier or saying that the cause was just, and righteous, and ordained by God, is it?

Especially when so many of these Sold-out Priests actually DO come right out and say that their version of Jihad/Crusade really IS just, righteous, ordained by God… A “Holy” War in other words.

The Anti-Islam Pro-Holy War Media break out a doll allegedly given to Palestinian kids with bombs, guns, swords and other knives, with a faction-specific headscarf identifying the doll as being Hamas.

and of course, like the funerary eulogy, is “brainwashing the kids to become suicide bombers” while the U.S. version thereof, pictured here, is NOT brainwashing the kids to be Fighter Pilots, Bomber Pilots, Drone Manipulators, Marines, Soldiers and Seamen who use large numbers of heavily armed comrades and high tech weaponry to Kill People using guns, bombs, knives and torture techniques applied to handcuffed prisoners… because, of course, the High-Tech weaponry makes the notion of a Suicide Bomber unnecessary.

If other people who don’t have access to a Drone that can be launched from a heavily guarded air force base and controlled by some Coward Punk Uniformed Child sitting at a desk at an air base in Nebraska, use the more “hands on” approach to delivering their ordinance, then THEY are the cowardly ones, right?

Teaching uniformed children to use weapons and military techniques and tactics is of course a strictly un-American concept, because we would NEVER do that, including not teaching our kids to use the same skills they would need to manipulate Drone Robot Bombs into the living space of other Human Beings with the purpose of Killing The Other Human Beings, by remote control…

No, that’s the province of Other People.

When an American Child is killed violently, usually the violence either accidental or deliberate occurs in America.

Since by most counts the U.S. majority is White and Christian, that means that the majority of both Victims and Victors would be Christian Whites.

Unless you have the silly-ass notion that American Christian Whites don’t ever commit violent crimes.

Until the insertion, forcibly, of the Killer Kristian Krusade into Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Iraq, most violent contact between people in the regions would by default be by other Iraqi, Afghan or Pakistani citizens. “Killing their own people” is the screeching denunciation launched against every Muslim on the planet by Professional Lying Crybabies, like the Pentagon Media Liaisons and their largely unacknowledged Killer Kreep Komrades at FOX and AP and BBC “news” Outlets.

So where is the outcry, whither the screams of loud lamentation, over American White Christians in America “killing their own people”?

Oh, that’s right, it’s all from the “discredited” Radical Left. And of course disproved, even though the facts are obvious, simply because a Leftist writes about it.

And of course wouldn’t reflect on the patent dishonesty or Moral Cowardice of the Radical Right.

Nor would their myths that AFDC, Food Assistance and Medicaid go mostly to Black Americans, when the fact is that White Americans, simply being in the majority, depend more heavily on these “entitlement” programs.

Since RICH Americans are in the tiniest minority and people living below the poverty line are the Vast Majority.

“Average” income and “Median” income don’t mean “half the people in the country make that much or above”.

That would take some Algebra, true, but it’s basic algebra. Anybody who plays checkers or dominoes or any card game knows the basic math to work out that 85% of the wealth being controlled by 5% of the population means there’s 95% of the population would control only 15% of the wealth. In order for a middle class to even exist would mean that the “underclass” those of us “subhumans” who don’t make anywhere near Median Income, is the true Majority.

But it’s only Racial, religious and ethnic minorities who have Public Assistance. Which counts for less than half the Federal Budget. According to the Hate-Mongers.

They also have a myth that Federal Prisoners get food stamp and AFDC benefits. Ronald Reagan, GHW Bush and Newt Gingrich made a campaign issue of it, and actually won. So did “libertarian hero” Ron ‘not really a racist but i play one on TV’ Paul.

And the REAL Welfare Payout, to the “defense” Contractors, is more than half the budget, and going to a tiny minority of the people in the country.

The ones who fund the Hate-Speech Demagogues like Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck and Ron Paul to tell us that Black and Hispanic people on public assistance is what’s breaking the budget.

And incite more Racially Motivated Wars, too, so they can keep their “defense” industry sponsors’ snouts firmly in the trough.

And if Americans of any ethnic, religious, racial or political subculture, get killed in the process, that of course isn’t Anti-American violence, because of course, the Tea Party and other Ku Klux Klown groups have reserved for themselves the right to say who is or is not a “Real” American. People of Ethnic, Religious or Political Difference to the Tea Party “mainstream” need not apply.

Glenn Beck might go blind— Karma?

Oh well, at least he has his millions in Blood Money gotten for being a Professional Liar on Fox. That will pay for adaptive technologies, therapy, training in how to survive with a disability… you know, the kind of stuff he and his fellow TeaBag ASSHOLES have tried to keep OTHER disabled people from having any chance of obtaining.
The Slash-and-burn approach to Health Care funding that reached a fever pitch during the Reagan/Bush/Bush junior Regime. The kind of funding cuts and service cuts Ron Paul endorsed, fought for, loudly and proudly boasted of accomplishing. Kick the cripple when he’s down, eh, Mr Paul, Mr Beck, Mr and Mrs TeaBag?
The kind of Denial of Basic Health Care that killed Martha.

Don’t think, Mr and Mrs TeaBag, Mr Beck, Mr Paul and your entire party, that I’ll ever forget that. Every time I see your Fat Smug Smarmy faces chanting about how people who are poor and disabled, poor because of our disabilities, how we don’t deserve to live. That we should basically Curl up and DIE. Which is what happened with Martha…. Every time you smug smarmy pricks get together and condemn the Disabled to such a fate and say that GOD tells you to do it, I remember Martha and her final days and hours. I remember how the therapies that were in place, available but only to those who have money, the therapies that could have saved her life or made it somewhat more bearable, at the very least, were DENIED to her.

I remember that every time one of your Brainwashed Zombie supporters tells me that “well, at least you have equal treatment in the Emergency Room” or “The Liberals LIE when they say that Poor and Disabled Americans don’t have equal access to health care” when I know better. When Rush Limbaugh came close to telling the truth about his Emergency Room Care in Hawaii… and then said that everybody gets that kind of care. Sure they do, Rush… In HAWAII which has full on socialized health care that IS available to everybody.
You left that part out, didn’t you, Rush? And your Fellow Hate Freaks who equate surviving with disabilities to a Sin. Fellow Hate Freaks like Glenn Beck.

Mrs Palin, so Smug and “I’m a good mom” with her son, oh how difficult it must be for you, having to raise a child with all the amenities and comforts and above all Access To Proper Health Care that you and your fellow TeaBags seek to DENY to other mothers and children who aren’t as Rich as you.
Such a kind and Christian lot, you are.

All that steam you worked up over a Health Care bill that might just stanch the Rapidly increasing Money Hemorrhage and save Health Care, instead of allowing your Fellow Corporate Thieves to take away every bit of that, and still charge us everything WE have for it…

Why not get angry about the ten-to-a-hundred times MORE money being spent on your Conquest of the world, or rather, your FAILED conquests?

Mr Beck, I know a man who is blinded from a bullet to the head in one of the Wars you and your bloodthirsty crew of draft-dodging Propagandists make money from promoting.

I pity you for the trials you’re about to face. Not enough, though, to give you a sympathy vote. You, or your literally God-Damned DoucheBag Party.

You make money from preaching denial of health care, the same way you make money from preaching and enabling the wars. You make money, in short, on the shed blood of the victims of both the War, and the victims of Denial of Health Care. Your money has blood on it that will never wash out.

Would you sell your kid for 253 dollars?

That’s what the people of Bhopal India were told to do when the “compensation” was announced 24 years ago. That’s after 2 years of LawyerFights over Limited Liability and “Tort Reform”. The Reaganites including Ron Paul, the Dad-part of the Paul and Paul Father-son Hate Team, rather than celebrate the judgment of 12,400 rupees per each dead Indian, bitched and whined that it was Too Much.

The BAIL for the Guilty Parties, or at least the lower level Guilty parties, nine in all, one deceased and one “hiding” in a Country Club gated community on Long Island, was 25,000 rupees apiece. $502. For 25,000 counts of Murder. That’s three times the “official” count. The official count was 8000 initially and another 9000 since.
If Union Carbide wants to call that libel or slander, it would be up to them to prove it.

The Union Carbide Corporation, the truly guilty party, is not required to meet the responsibilities of a Real Human Citizen even though they have more “rights” than a real human citizen. Ron and Rand Paul and all the other Reaganite Corporate Sucks say Amen.

I was charged with possession of a knife that doesn’t fold up in Texas once, the bail for that was $800. The actual BOND for it was $2000. You know, that makes me feel especially hard core when my bond for merely carrying a knife was 4 times that for 25,000 counts of Capital Murder.

Incidentally, the BBC report only counts the initially killed, not those who have died subsequently. The clinic that Union Carbide opened to “treat the injured” closed about 12 years ago. The residues of that explosion and all the accumulated Union Carbide waste chemicals over the decades are still killing people. Sans the $253 payout per dead kid.

Maybe the criminals at British Petroleum will receive a stiffer payment. It would be next to impossible for the punishment to be lighter than that.
No, Really. Look up “impossible” in the dictionary and right next to it will be a picture of somebody getting a lighter slap on the wrist for a heinous crime.

But, after all, the economic victims of BP are (for now) mostly American citizens, a large part of them White and there’s even the damage to some of the Playground Beaches where the richest like to go, when their Very Important Jobs holding down their office chairs, keeping them from drifting off into space, become too wearisome and they need a break.

I figure one oil stained beach on a Private Island will fetch more in damages than 25,000 dead Indians.

Rand Paul is a straw man, a scary one. Chicken Littles are tilting at scarecrow

Progressive voices are a-twitter about keeping tea party buffoon Rand Paul in ascendance. The joke I suppose is that he makes the Democrats look good. Obviously you need to look to further rightist extremes to keep that up. Laughs at Sarah Palin’s expense only enhanced her shadow. It got Obama elected, holding voters at “change we can believe in” as opposed to the change we needed. Boogie-persons Palin and Paul are not only straw man opponents, they’re scarecrows.
