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.

Capital = Job creation, as explained by CenturyLink formerly Qwest formerly SW Bell

and somewhere in there a brief fantasy relationship with Yahoo as an internet service provider and a general screwing to the taxpayers of the City of Irving and Dallas county being thrown in... but I once more digress. CenturyLink "absorbed" Qwest's facilities, employees and corporate debts in a process called merger where all duplicated or "redundant" jobs on both sides of the merger were downsized. Meaning XXX number of real people lost their tech and service sector jobs. That's the way it looks on any prospectus of any merged corporations, in order to convince people to invest more capital in those corporations. In reality the jobs created would be debt collectors and repossession crews and foreclosure agents. BUT that's what they tell the Money People. Those of us who are in the Peasant Majority are told that we should welcome CenturyLink along with the massive tax breaks given on top of the ones they already enjoyed PLUS extras for "Job Creation" in our communities... we're told that these massive layoffs is somehow an opportunity for those "downsized" out of having a living wage job to get a job with a company who has just laid off about 20 percent of their workforce by eliminating redundant positions. Firing people in other words. But "job creation" is their story, and they're stickin' to it. So when you hear a politician proclaim that his policies of deregulation and wage-cutting and tax breaks for the richest actually created jobs, now you know why it is that a lot of people have decided that he's just full of shit all the way up to the nose and it keeps leaking out of his mouth. Other questions for them would be, since Union Membership is under 20% of the workers now, for thirty years the right to organize, join or even mention the word "Unions" anywhere on or off the job has been slashed, safety health and environmental regulations slashed, the remaining shreds of those regulations routinely ignored, and the workers' right to legal redress of grievances limited under "Tort Reform" plus the lowest tax rate since the last Great Depression, hasn't created any "new jobs" for us even though the Corporations have had their way granted to them on a silver charger for 3 straight decades. But you'll only get half of the first part of the question asked when the TeaBag and RepubliKlan Morons shout you down.

Sarah Palin and the Republican Lie of “sacrifice”

Since she makes so much political hay over having sacrificed "her own" son to the Military Establishment, maybe she should have a short tutorial on the word Sacrifice. First, stolen goods, stolen money and humans aren't viewed as Clean for the Temple. Just like Caiphas couldn't spend the thirty shekels, because it was the price of blood. Sarah Palin could not in any way OWN her son. He's another separate human being. Not a possession. He might consider himself a sacrifice (he'd be wrong) but it would be HIS blood offering, not hers. Also he doesn't seem to be dying for the atonement of anybody's sin, if he DOES get his fascist face blown through the back of his skull it'll be because he's in a foreign country enslaving the people, taking their land and oil in the name of the corporations for whom Momma Grizzly does her whorin'. and one of them would get in a good shot while defending his country against Young Sgt Palin. Not anything similar to a sacrifice. A sacrifice is to make one Holy. Not to make one a simple grubby little cowardly murderer. But it goes right along with the Capitalist Theme, that the Captains of Industry should be allowed the full fruits of something other people built or did. Mrs Palin and the rest of them can say that they "sacrificed" their own kids to the Killing Machine, but they, like the Captains of Industry, who never put their own hand to the plough, never take up the sword to commit their own murders, and take whatever gain or sick emotional credit for the actions of others. They are a disgusting and slimy lot. No wonder the local business and civic and social "leaders" look up to them, especially those who pretend to be ministers of God. Her "sacrifice" of her son, or more truthfully the people murdered by her son, mirrors all their vainglorious actions.

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

Glenn Beck going blind, yes, it IS paybacks… from himself to himself

Now, I do know that Macular Degeneration isn't caused by lifestyle choices. Where HIS guilt in his own blindness is that the Corporations who FUND and ORGANIZE the TeaTards and also pay him more money a month than Real Construction Workers make in a LIFETIME of REAL work, to pose as a Working Class Citizen, have with the help of the Republican, Libertarian, and now Racist-ass Tea Parties, consistently blocked research into Macular Degeneration. Consistently. The same way Ronald and Nancy Reagan blocked socially and politically any effective research into Alzheimers until Ronald was diagnosed. Their Accomplices at FOX "news" manipulation have funded the TeaTards at first "secretly", an open secret but they denied it, until the Supremes, most notably Clarence "Uncle" Thomas, whose wife is a Corporate Lawyer Whore, decided that Corporations are better than and have more rights than us mere mortal peasants, and now the TeaTards have a little dilemma on their bloodstained hands... They've been outed by their Owners as being Corporate Whores. Now, I don't really want Glenn Beck to Go Blind. For one thing he's going to suck up Medical Resources trying to buy his way out of it, even if the Macular Degeneration research were fully funded today it won't save his eyes. The punk-ass Bitch made a career out of Spiritual Blindness and while he probably DOES deserve blindness.. we the people really don't deserve to have to listen to him make himself into a Pity-pot Martyr for years to come. Much like Rush Limbaugh, when he had chest pains in Honolulu, and was kept for observation overnight. Longer actually. Then said he got no special treatment, ANYBODY with chest pains gets that treatment... He neglected to mention "IN HAWAII". Which has Socialized Medicine and has for 30 years. People in the full-on Corporate States like Texas and Colorado don't get that kind of treatment, unless they're Rich. The TeaTards also don't mention that all medical research is publicly funded, even through "private" donations. The Richest "generously" give to the foundations, BUT, they get the money back in Tax Breaks. My, what Love and Charity! And of course, like our friend Bernie Herpin tried really hard to avoid saying, they have somebody blow a trumpet before them when they do their alms... on the public dime, and probably write off the expense of the trumpet player as a Business Expense. Such VICTIMS they are! Pay other peoples money to make themselves look good then pay MORE Tax-deductible Other Peoples money to make themselves out to be Christ-on-the-Cross if somebody happens to mention it. Glenn Beck is expected to milk his "misfortune" to the tune of an eight digit pay raise on his Corporate Lie Show. Meanwhile, a POOR person, a Real Worker, who starts going blind from M.D., or perhaps from workplace hazards, or from Environmental pollution, if he doesn't have the Really Expensive Insurance he can't afford on a REAL Workmans' salary.. ALL of which Glenn Beck "blindly" opposes any remediation thereof... won't even be diagnosed until far too late. If
