Ron Paul, Libertarian Texas-sized Turkey, repeats his mantra that ‘government cannot protect us from all possible harm’ post Aurora theater massacre

............. I was wondering just what was over on the ronpaul.com web site as the lIbertarian Texas-sized Turkey heads into the Republican convention and just days after the Aurora theater shootings. So what's he got to say about the gun driven bloodshed that occurred once again here in Colorado? Why it's his same ol' mantra as always... 'Government can't help us ...Government Cannot Protect Us From All Possible Harm'! There's some truth to that, but Ron Paul, aren't you being a whole lot disingenuous here? Government damn well sure can protect us ALL from lots of damn bad things, and that's what we all really want government to mainly do, even if you are just too stupid as to actually think that we shouldn't! Ron Paul does think that the military and police should be created by the government to supposedly PROTECT us, don't you, you Republican Texas Turkey? He's got no problem with that, and fund fund fund the cops and soldiers with their guns guns guns is OK OK OK with Ron Paul here! Not any problem at all for this miserable Libertarian ideologue. But come the government passing regulations to protect the environment, the elderly, the sick, the unemployed, the destitute, the small children of the USA, Ron Paul gets all indignant and starts his same ol' Libertarian Turkey mantra all over once again... that 'Government Cannot Protect Us From All Possible Harm yada yada'. And so that pertains to gun controls, too. If we want to all own nukes at home, we shouldn't be kept from doing that because the 'Government Cannot Protect Us From All Possible Harm yada yada'. OK, that's enough about this lame brain Ron Paul. Just thinking about what big ZEROs this guy and his Libertarian Movement buddies are gets me ill in the stomach. They ain't for Freedom and Liberty for common folk. All they care about is the business community when you get down to the nitty gritty of it. Me, I say the business community can go fuck off! Nothing about Liberty and Freedom in the world ahead will be supported by the US small and wanna-be capitalist types. I can even quite easily imagine that Holmes, the Aurora theater shooter, thought of himself somewhat as a 'Libertarian' type of guy. Be aware of when Libertarians go mad! Nothing like A Stupid to really screw things up BIG. Can't wait to see this Big Stupid Ron Paul endorsing Mitt Romney when push comes to shove. What a clown! What a turkey! (Note*** The turkey image at the head of this commentary was pulled from a Libertarian site where they had it as they made fun of Obama for being a 'turkey'. Notice the Afro? hahaha... That's upper middle class Libertarian 'humor' for you...

Not much of a surprise at all- The CIA is arming Syrian terrorists according to the New York Times

Hey we knew that already! Report: CIA aids in funneling arms to Syrian rebels. According to The New York Times, the CIA is helping to vet Syrian rebel groups for arms shipments paid for by Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar. Well what did all the Lefty liberal humanitarian imperialists think? That the US was all uninvolved in the arming of the Syrian Right Wing opposition to Assad? It was nothing more than a spontaneous rebellion against a bad guy? Talk about being stupidly naive and with heads stuck in holes in the sand full of Stalinist style bullshit being dropped! (Here we can talk most especially about one 'unrepentant' doctrinaire marxist moron', Louis Proyect, who is a left over US Trotskyist- exSWPer blend- now tied to the unknown in the US, Australian Green Left Weekly crowd through his censored and rather closed off New York City based discussion list- See Latest 100 messages from Marxism list Proyect is the shining example of what a humanitarian imperialist acts like.) This inability of so many on the US Left to recognize the opening battle ground of the coming US-Israeli military attack against Iran is appalling. Where is the US antiwar movement anyway? Did the US Left and liberal community forget to even try to build one? RightWinger Ron Paul provides more leadership there than the US Socialist Left and Democrats seems to be able to manage! Sad.... His latest speech denouncing the US MILITARY interventionism against the Syrian government was spot on compared to what many marxist numbskulls can come up with. When Will We Attack Syria? by Rep. Ron Paul, June 20, 2012 The Left in the US never fails to amaze one at just how out of contact with reality it can be!

Ron Paul and Ralph Nader: the ‘Ayn Rand of Fox News’ connection – SICKO!

So just who calls himself 'the Ayn Rand of Fox News' and loves Milton Friedman? A guy named Andrew Napolitano does, and he, according to the Ron Paul website itself, was voted by Ron Paulers overwhelming as their favorite choice to be Ron Paul's vice presidential running mate! Go to http://www.ronpaul.com/ and see it for yourself. But now just where does Ralph Nader come into this sad mix? It seems that Ralph Nader has been pushing not even for a return into the Democratic Party as a Democrat to run in opposition to Barack Obama, as he did earlier on in the presidential race. Instead, he has been busy pushing for Ron Paul's Republican Party candidacy! In a recent issue of Time Magazine, he was seen telling the reader that Ron Paul was one of the world's 100 most influential people! SICKO! I wonder if the people of China and India know how important Ron Paul is? I wonder if Mexicans do? Is Ralph Nader catching some sort of dementia in his golden years? Inquiring minds would like to know... One of the most 100 influential people inthe world? EGADS! Spare us this nonsense, Ralph. And how soon will it now be that Ron Paul completely rolls himself into the Mitt Romney for President push? Two Party dictatroship turns the whole selection day show into a circus and our US First folk into just so many saddening clowns. What would it take for us to turn the US into a real democracy? Why it would take us! And it would take us giving up on this charade of being a two party only society. Apparently this is something Ralph Nader has gotten kind of mixed up about.... Go figure?

Near success of delegates for Ron Paul exposes electoral college as rigged

I want to give Ron Paul supporters their due. By their determination to advance their Republican candidate by hook or by crook, Team Ron Paul's self-deputized delegates have exposed the US electoral college nomination process to be fixed. Isn't it interesting how far Republican state party chairmen have been willing to go to stop even the slightest encroachment on candidate Mitt Romney's presumptive convention backing? May the best man win is the ethos they preach, but it seems the furthest from what they will allow. Of course this learning moment will be lost on Ron Paul's army of halfwits, just clever enough to outmaneuver the average rival Republicans, but dumb enough in the first place to fall for their "Dr. Paul". Don't you just love it, their reverence for a PhD, from mostly stunted males claiming post-grad (of associate degrees) studies in "The Austrian School" of economics? They're gun nuts and bombastic proponents of folk-wisdom libertarian nationalism, no surprises there, and so we can't even congratulate them on debunking the apple-pie objectivity of America's electoral level playing field, because it will go to their head and their craniums are pit bull small.

British National Front fascists like both Marine Le Pen, the French fascist leader, and Ron Paul.

It's really no surprise here, but the British National Front fascists like both Ron Paul and Marine Le Pen. We should ask ourselves just why that is. See the National Front's web site... Marine Le Pen & Ron Paul. It was thought that the dangers of the Far Right had been completely eliminated because of the horrors it caused the world in World War 2. Think again and be very aware, as the world capitalist economic crisis worsens and worsens and worsens... We live in dangerous times once again.

UltraLeftism fails to revitalize May Day in America, or to revitalize the Occupy Movement either

Pity the poor Occupy Movement, as Establishment liberal types, Ron Paul Right Wingers, and now Ultraleftists all try out the shortcomings of their own models of disorganization and find them all to be totally lacking. Yesterday on May Day the UltraLeftists had their turn to further disorganize Occupy, as they called for a 'general strike' with their own subjective desires as the only 'force' actually desiring to go into any battle. The result? Nobody but the Black Bloc really had 'a good time', ...plus a few riot cops with their Darth Vader inspired weoponry in hand. Here's the problem, Gents of the UltraLeft. To actually build a real General Strike you have to patiently organize The People and not just call a 'strike' all alone in your own pitifully small name. Do that alone, and you will hardly even get out a respectfully numbered May Day 'celebration'. People will simply ignore you and go about their personal business. You will have organized nothing. Like it or not, UltraLefts, but the general body politic has decided to sit out YET another selection year of the ruling class, and to massively and passively watch the results once again of this charade. It will take more than your mere bravado to move them into any gear other than their passivity. The 'general stike' of Colorado could be seen in Denver Occupy, as one of the local Colorado Springs' Ron Paulers, 'Joel', did his usual incoherent jig on the live feed. Message? 'God Bless America'... Pity the poor Occupy Movement with 'organizers' such as 'Joel' and the young and stupid 'Black Bloc nincompoops as so-called 'leaders'. What a silly circus the Occupy Movement has now degenerated itself into. The masses are not yet moving and will not be moved behind a 'movement' that declares itself to be leaderless.

‘Oath Keepers’ fascist organizers inside US military and police forces strongly favor Ron Paul candidacy …What a surprise!

'Oath Keepers' is an effort of the American Far Right to organize more cops and military into a blatantly fascist organization that is dedicated to fighting 'domestic enemies' of the US capitalist Empire. To the US Far Right, that would include just about anybody other than themselves. And who do they increasingly openly support for President? Why it's Ron Paul, who else? We began to run into these 'Oath Keeper' creeper types in local Occupy Colorado Springs, as Right Winger Ron Libertarian types began to take an increasingly hostile and threatening attitude against local Leftists who they wanted to run out of Occupy altogether. These local militarized Right Wing peons began increasingly to link up with more hard core Right Wing figures, both locally like 'Red, White, and Blue' failed businessman, Jim Cross, and also nationally with infamous Right Wing thugs such as Glenn Beck and reporters from his national blog called 'The Blaze', which they then used to launch a national witch hunt against myself for supposedly disparaging US soldiers.... Poor Babies. They must supposedly be protected by American Right Wingers from Lefties such as BIG BAD me. TROOPS KILL KIDS! Oh YES they really do! And some want me shut up for mentioning it, because they hate FREE SPEECH when it's actually exercised and doesn't agree with their own stupid opinions and ideas. Despite having my last name in hand and launching a national conservative campaign of hate against me and my family, not once did Glenn Beck's national reporter for The Blaze ever make the slightest effort to hear my side of the story against the slanders of these local Right Wing misfits and petty thugs inside Occupy Colorado Springs. Where's the commitment to TRUTH, Beck? Oh...? You are not in anyway committed to telling the truth about anything, are you? You're just committed to harassing the Left... that's all. Occupy Colorado Springs became more and more divided between us leaning Leftward, and those who left the local Occupy to campaign openly for Ron Paul. So here it is about the 'Oath Keeper' organizing for Ron Paul, ALL THIS in spite of OAF Keeper supposedly being all 'non-partisan' and sweet like. They're not non-partisan at all, but simply a collection of Far Right Wingers latched onto the American National Security State... See Veterans And Troops Support Ron Paul and see what I mean about how these thugs are tied together with Ron Paul and his cronies. Not pretty at all. Too bad so many in Occupy Colorado Springs were already organized into Right Wing circles. That's the real reason Occupy Colorado Springs basically has gone into a deep funk.

Goodbye, Dear Two Party Establishment rif-raf!

This week has been a particularly bad one for the most publicly popular TWO in the Two Party Establishment rif-raf, Ron Paul and Dennis the not much of a menace to The Powerful Kucinich. Kucinich lost his congressional seat and Ron Paul had a not so super 'Super Tuesday'. Oh well, Guys. Maybe next, Ruling Class Establishment Selection for you two? or perhaps not... YAWN.

The Republicratic Party’s two fake ‘Peace’ candidates, Ron Paul & Obama

Have Americans ever been so deluded before? At the last Occupy Colorado Springs activity I was at, person after person came up to me as I held a sign saying PEACE and informed me all knowingly that 'The War' was now all over with. When I replied to them that it surely was not, they shook their heads with disgust that I should be so ignorant as to think that! And even as the US is at war with much of the world and preparing for new 'interventions' in multiple places, many of the American public seemingly believe that the Republicrats are presenting them with 2 outstanding and shining Peace candidates for the presidency. Have we all fallen down the rabbit hole into Alice's Wonderland? I begin to wonder? Here is the New York Times trying to pull the wool over our eyes with this story about Obomber, The supposed Peace President in his starring role... Obama Warns Against ‘Loose Talk of War’ , as if by talking out of both sides of his mouth at once, that somehow can make him Super Peace Man while the Republican opposition mainly rattle their wannabe collective sabers! But the Republicans have their fake-o Peace guy, too, and he is the Love Business, Ayn Randite from Texas called Ron Paul. Ron, per his Vote Me website is claiming to represent the Tea Party much better than Rick Santorum is... SUPPORTING SANTORUM MEANS REJECTING THE TEA PARTY, as if anybody in their not Right Winger mind would ever believe that the Tea Party is pro Peace? He, too, talks out of both sides of his mouth, just like Barack. Too damn weird that so many Americans continue to see Ron Paul, grand saviour of the Tea Party Movement, as being an 'antiwar' sort of guy! But they do! They really do. Unbelievable delusion, is it not? Here is more from the vote Ron Paul website... 'Kathleen Miller, wife of popular former Tea Party U.S. Senate candidate, “proudly” stands with Paul- ANCHORAGE, Alaska 2012 Republican Presidential candidate Ron Paul was endorsed today by Kathleen Miller, wife of Joe Miller, a popular Tea Party Republican nominee for U.S. Senate in the state of Alaska during the 2010 election.' What a strange Peace Now guy this Ron Paul must be? Here he is once again per his web site... 'In Congress, Ron Paul voted to authorize military force to hunt down Osama bin Laden and authored legislation to specifically target terrorist leaders and bring them to justice.' So he backed those drones that have been killing innocent people as often as not, in foreign countries though it is against international law! He backs those drones that have killed multiple innocent enough children, and did it while preparing to run as the Tea bagger version of the Peace candidate! How can so many Americans buy this kool

Colorados’s Libertarian tax evader crusader, Doug Bruce, heads off for jail

Denver American Civil Liberties Union lawyer failed to keep Libertarian tax cheat and slum lord, Doug Bruce, from deservedly heading into jail for 6 months for his tax evasion. Doug Bruce is the Libertarian big time ideologue now famous for authoring the TABOR Amendment legislation, which has helped demolish the quality of public education in this state among the many other negative consequences of this backward looking and reactionary bill. So perhaps Doug Bruce will be now better able to campaign among fellow inmates for Libertarian Republican Ron Paul 2012 from his new home in the prison cell? And be sure to keep that toilet clean, Doug! It's good manners, Prison Dude. Thinking about Doug a bit more, a citizen should be able to see that electing fellow Libertarian Ron Paul president would be about as negative a thing a country could ever do. It would be like putting Doug Bruce into the governor's seat instead of putting him in prison cell where he definitely does belong. Got to pay some taxes, Libertarians, because we need government but we need a better one than we got, or that you reactionaries would ever help arrange us to get. Sorry, Bruce, but a government has the right to raise funds in order to implement social programs even if you Libertarians have trouble seeing it due to your excessive love of Big Business interests. Pay your taxes and stop whining, Bruce.

Is Ron Paul really against supporting more US government war making?

Many desperate citizens have this round of corporate Presidential selectioning, taken to supporting Ron Paul and his Libertarian backed campaign in hopes of finding some avenue forward to changing the sorry state of current US politics. We think that a very mistaken idea, as Ron Paul in no way seems to be even slightly anti-Pentagon militarism, let alone an advocate for decent domestic policy changes. In fact, his domestic policy positions are truly horrifying, and advocate for doing away with public schools and social security and not the Police State, the prison camps, and excessive US BIG government military presence seen across the globe. The following is some of what Ron Paul has himself posted on his own web site and it should give people hoping to change America for the better some very real reason to pause and think a wee bit more, before they find themselves rushing in madly with support for this Texas based Right Winger. Unfortunately, like the crazy drive to support Barack Obama 4 years ago, many lost American souls just seem simply to want to self delude themselves as much as they possibly can, while trying to find some politician saint or other to worship. Dead end city though! Ron Paul would be a total disaster for the US if he were to get selected. Please stop and think some, before you cast your vote for this guy! From ronpaul.con ---Ronald Reagan: "Ron Paul is one of the outstanding leaders fighting for a stronger national defense. As a former Air Force officer, he knows well the needs of our armed forces, and he always puts them first. We need to keep him fighting for our country."--- Pardon? Why would any real advocate of change away from the current American government's war mongering be putting up an endorsement by now deceased, ex US President war monger Ronnie Raygun on his own website? Doesn't that seem strange if you think this guy as being something of an anti US government war making guy? Let's read still more from Ron Paul's own web site... ---Ron Paul is a proud Air Force veteran. He served as a flight surgeon in the U.S. Air Force from 1963 to 1965 and then in the U.S. Air National Guard from 1965 to 1968. During his military service Ron Paul spent time on the ground in Iran, Pakistan, South Korea, Turkey, Ethiopia and other countries. Ron Paul is very popular with the military. He receives more donations from active duty military personnel than all other Republican candidates combined.--- Well whoopee, Ron! Sounds like there is one big government program you are certainly behind, and that is the Pentagon's. Did you enjoy your personal part in the US military occupations' of other peoples countries? Seems as if you did... Ron Paul definitely wants us all to know

Tea Partying with the Freak Brothers

Whew! These Occupy posts are far more difficult to pry from myself than their predecessors; the hands-on mechanics of putting the earlier stuff into practice in the present world, amongst the isolated pools of individuated consciousness we humans represent, each with his or her own vision of the whole, has been at the very least disorienting. I've lately revived an old motto i swiped from the good people at Oat Willie's down in Austin, Texas: Onward Through the Fog! How odd is it that i've recently connected with some folks that hark back to that place in ways that are deeply surreal. Oat Willie's and Fat Freddie will seem to be completely out of place in this bit, in which i mean to address the notion of cooperation amongst disparate factions, but not permanently i hope. By the end of this post, i hope to connect Occupy, The Tea Party, disparate passions, and yes, Hippies. It will be necessary to engage in some relatively surreal thinking. Last night on a new Facebook page, "UNITE: OCCUPY," (cap lock and all), i got into a conversation about this stuff started by a guy that asked whether anyone thought a joint event between Occupiers and Tea Partiers might be possible. Sure, i said, our Colorado Springs group had lots of Tea Partiers among its earliest enthusiasts, and although many have pulled away, there still exists a close association with many that veer sharply toward the Te Party camp, especially among Ron Paul supporters. The common ground Occupy shares with the Tea Party, at least t a grass root level, is substantial. There can be no doubt of the equally substantial differences. I suspect that it would take some pretty serious ideological barnstorming to bring the two camps together, but nothing prevents the groups from at least tentative discussion to find commonalities. Tonight our Occupy group staged a talk by Tea Party stalwart, Constitutionalist Mike Holler. Mike seemed for all appearances to be an earnest and well-versed supporter of Constitutional "fundamentalism," if you will. He peppered his talk with lots of my favorite quotes from my favorite founding fathers. He got a little testy about the revisionist history his kids bring home from college early on--perhaps indicative of one point of separation between Occupiers and Tea Partiers. Some of those are important. Occupy is international, where the Tea Party can display degrees of jingoism. I, personally, respect the earnest efforts of our Enlightenment founders, but recognize that they were flawed, and aver that their document was dated by racist, sexist, and elitist provisions and thinking that they might be excused from by noting their temporal milieu. We don't have the same luxury. Occupy is legitimately grass root, supported by sweat and blood more than funded, where TP is, or at least became very quickly corporately funded "astroturf," disingenuously proffering libertarian ideals as a smoke screen for corporate license to plunder. Occupiers are in my experience far more diverse than Tea Partiers. Socialist and Anarchist Occupiers

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

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

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.

Ron Paul’s rabble of the Right

The Ron Paul Show is liking watching H. Ross Perot Part Deux... or make that Part Duh. He held a huge parting rally outside the Republican Party Convention last week in Minnesota, and look who all came! Ron Paul draws more people and more excitement than John McCain's show across town -- but he also attracts some scary "old friends." And here is yet more commentary about this Right Wing rabble... Behind The Curtain Of Ron Paul's Disciples After Ron Paul, who will become the new heir to the H. Ross Perot crowd? Right Wing populism in the US attracts a creepy crowd.
