Those statues they’re taking down honored REBELS. Let that sink in.

If we're really aiming to discredit historic personages who faught for slavery we've got a lot more statues to take down. The Alamo first responders come to mind. Boone, Crockett, and gang delivered the Texas territories from Mexico which had abolished slavery there. Gringo Texas land grabbers needed slaves for their intended plantations. And we can go back to the colonial declarers of independance, who resented taxation without representation. What was England trying to foist on America without representation? ABOLITION OF SLAVERY. The statues being taken down in New Orleans are no doubt going to rich collectors to decorate vast private gardens. There the statues wil definitely be appreciated for overt racist and segregationist themes. In the historic town centers where those monuments belong, those statues celebrate REBELS. Let that sink in. Before the victors chose the title "Civil War" for their prerogative to write the history, it was called the War of Rebellion. When Honest Abe heard the news about your fall, The folks thought he'd call a great victory ball. But he asked the band to play the song "Dixie" For you Johnny Reb and all that you believe. 'Cause you fought all the way, Johny Reb, Johnny Reb. Yeah, you fought all the way, Johnny Reb. That's what those statues are about, you Freedom-Fries munching knee-jerks!

Whose flag opposes the anti-slavery stipulations in the TPP trade treaty?

We're demonizing the Civil War era Confederate Battleflag for defending slavery while the victorious DC regime profits by slavery and protects it still. Team Stars and Stripes opposes amendments to the Trans Pacific Partnership agreement that would prohibit signatory nations from exploiting slave labor. The Rebel flag stood for slavery, the US flag stands for it.

The New Slave Ships Have Arrived

The year was 1960, and there was only one men’s prison in Colorado at that time, located at Canon City. There was a women’s prison that sat next to the men’s prison. There were three small satellites off the main prison: the ranch, dairy farm and garden. And there was the young men’s reformatory at Buena Vista, for a total of three prisons. In 1960 the population figures for Colorado was nearly two million people, in 2010 it was a little over five million; In a span of fifty years Colorado gained three million people. In 1960, it took 3 prisons to confine the convicts of two million people living in Colorado. By 2006 there were 30 prisons in Colorado, while adding only three million people to the population. Hold on here a minute; something doesn't add up: 2 million people needed 3 prisons, now 5 million people need 30 prisons?! It would be safe to assume that this growth in population were of people about to commit a crime, judging from the growth of new prisons compared to the population growth. That’s quite a growth from 3 prisons to 30 prisons in 26 years; but then we didn’t have the “Prison Industrial Complex” in those years; Corporation private prisons. Their motto should read “If there are no prisoners; there is no profit” If you and your family were out on a Sunday drive in 1960 and happen to drive by “Old Max” on Hi-way 50, you would have noticed a sign in front of the prison that advertised “Visitors Welcome” the sign went on to tell you that you could enter the prison for fifty cents on a guided tour at certain hours. This fifty cents was to go into a prisoner burial fund, for indigent convicts who died while imprisoned. They would then be buried in a pauper grave yard and sentence was complete due to death. A few years later these tours were discontinued for fear that the prisoners might take the tourist hostage, also the Prison Administration had decided that it was better not to let the taxpayer see the condition of the prison they were paying for. My wife and I decided to take the tour. I had the feeling of a rat in the trap when the large steel door slammed shut behind us. After taking only a few steps, we left behind a warm sunny day and stepped into a dark gray world. The doom and gloom seemed to lurk at every corner, the guards in their towers, stared down at the tour, rifles at ready. We had the feeling that this tour, was a bad idea. There was a guard about 70 years old who served as our tour guide, he wore a guard's uniform and walked backwards as he pointed out the finer attractions of the prison; like the hole or the gas chamber. We were not allowed to go into these building as the old guard explained; we could

John Kerry tells Africa its greatest resource was & will always be slavery

With the developed empire still wildly exploiting Africa's vast natural resources and pillaging the wealth of its peoples, US Secretary of State John Kerry had the temerity to pretend that the dark continent's most precious resource is its untapped labor. Globalization means Western Civ doesn't have to ship slaves to labor intensive ventures across oceans. Now debt slaves can serve world bank masters in sweatshops and maquiadores and plantations situated in their own prison states.

Fast Food Forward!

A working wage for those working in the fast food industry is a righteous cause to struggle to get! There is now a strike of fast food workers underway being led by Fast Food Forward that is seeking a change to this modern day fast food factory slavery that has come to symbolize all that's wrong with the US. Support them. See Fast-food workers in NYC flex their muscle for better pay for more about their strike.

Collaborators, rats and pigs

I found this unsigned flier in Denver, a collage of the American eagle, globe in mouth, and Stars & Stripes over US misdeeds, clockwise from top left: race lynching, branding slaves, blindfolded Iraqi detainees, combatant corpse desecration, Hiroshima, torture of Viet Cong, My Lai, Columbus' mass burning of Taíno Indians, Filipino insurgents executed in trenches, the gruesome trophy pic, etc, framing this succinct condemnation: "The US military, intelligence operatives, and police are traitors to humanity. Those who work with them, those who friend them, and those who sleep with them are collaborators. They are rats and pigs."

The Puppet-Masters and their pet Turkey, double-dealing.

They condemn those of us in America who rebel against their fascist Corporate leadership and presumption of ownership of every aspect of our lives, calling it "Freedom" while their Pig-Slaves break our heads with clubs and plastic bullets. And in the case of Oscar Grant, lead and copper bullets. While cheering rebellions in countries which have denied "deprived" the Poor Little Rich Boys like Halliburton, Exxon-Mobil, British Petroleum, Royal Dutch, Shell, "stolen" their claim to have Corporate Control over their ports and their oil. And they actually finance and organize the so-called "spontaneous" rebellions like in Libya and now, Syria. Never mind they're also paying Other Peoples Money And Lives to put down REAL grass roots movements in Iraq and Afghanistan and Yemen... And Turkey. Turkey is now paying back their Corporate Overlords for the U.S. and NATO PUBLICLY FUNDED Terror War against the Kurds and Albania. The Slave-Caliph Recep Tayyip Erdogan condemns Syria for responding violently to violent attacks while continuing to suppress, with the help of his Puppet Masters in London and Washington, the Kurdish People actually having a right to life. Lick them Pentagon Boots, "caliph" Erdogan. They're your masters and you are their dog. Just like the New Puppet Regime in Libya, and the somewhat more established Puppet Regimes in Tel Aviv, Kabul, and Baghdad. Be the little whipped hound for racist bastards who call you "ragheads" and "sand-niggers" and "muzzle monkeys". You might wear golden chains and a gold collar, but they're still a collar and chain. Just like the Oakland, Denver, Colorado Springs and New York Police departments violently suppressing freedom here, in the very homeland of your puppet-masters and, at their bidding.

Cain being charged on sex, but not the Murder and Robbery and Slavery

He's paid to support War, it's the base of Capital. Now they've got some sex accusations brought to bring him down. As heinous as rape is, or the statutory rape of an employee or job candidate as a condition of being hired... There's the literally countless murders of civilians including children done to support the lavish lifestyle of the Corporate Class. It would pale in comparison to even one such wanton murder. It's drinking from the same fount, though, War, Slavery, Prostitution, Rape... but so far there's a thunderous silence booming from the Right over any and all of those issues. To raise the issue that War is equivalent to any of the other crimes, or even a solid foundation to mask and enable them, has been political suicide since the time of the Athenians. The beating of War drums awakens and energizes people who only vote on emotion, and Capital is subsidized by War. It cannot survive without war, it's not a self-sustaining system as the "Invisible Hand Free Market" proponents claim. To take away another persons freedoms, rights or properties by force is called Robbery, yet that's what Capital does by renaming "robbery" as "regime change", declaring whole nations to be "outlaws" or "rogues" because they don't allow Corporate ownership of their national holdings. Just how DID "our" oil get under THEIR sand? Capitalists like Cain, and McCain, other persons who are paid to champion and advance the so-called self-supporting "free" market, are collecting welfare on a massive scale. They LIE by renaming conquest as liberation, Servile knee-jerk enforced "patriotism" as Freedom, using the word Nationalism to justify taking away the national sovereignty of everybody else. They embroil themselves in the Organized Crime that IS Corporate Rule. But to come out and SAY it, means you'll never be elected anywhere and you'll never get the privilege of being one of the Corporate Slaves. Not a bad trade off.

Niemand ist hoffnungsloser versklavt als jene, die fälschlicherweise glauben, frei zu sein. – Uh, it’s Goethe

You might as well quote Goethe in the original German, so tentatively does his meaning translate to the common conformist. For the lower brow: without the red pill, how can you know it will deliver you? This message was spotted among this weekend's Wall Street Occupiers: "None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free."

An 83% Payroll Tax, on the Workers and paid directly to the Corporations

That's what I paid and, everybody who works for a "Slave Market" minimum wage Labor Contractor Service such as Labor Ready, Apprentice, Manpower, Kelly... The "tax" is paid to a Non-Governmental Organization, and is paid before the Worker gets his check. I base the 83% figure on the fact that the workers are paid only 1/6th of what the Parasite Corporation gets for his "product". Under the various manifestations of the "Right To Get Screwed At Work" law, the workers aren't allowed to negotiate wages, working conditions, pensions or Insurance through the use of Collective Bargaining. We're supposed, instead, to go hat-in-hand and beg the employer for a slight fraction more of what is actually owed us. On an individual basis and, under the RTW law, the employer can cut your wages just as quickly as he "gives" them to you. They can take 5 times what we get, producing absolutely NOTHING themselves. We're not allowed to do what the Corporate Masters do, insist on a profit for our product. Nor, according to the laws as interpreted by their Tame Supreme Court, are we even allowed to break even. You can't go to King Soopers or Safeway and buy a $3 loaf of bread for only a dollar, insisting that that's all you'll pay them. If you leave the dollar and take the loaf, they'll call the Korporate Kontrolled Kops on you and have you arrested. And they call their TeaParty stooges, most of them the Stupid members of the Working Class, to defend their Corporate Masters from the "theft" of paying income tax. They have the government at every level in their service, coercing workers around the world to accept Slave Wages, at public expense, so every dime in their bark accounts is a Direct Government Subsidy. If the "peasants" rebel, like in Honduras, the U.S. Military will intervene, and ALWAYS on behalf of the Corporate Masters. Like their Death Squadsjust did "Gunmen have shot dead farm workers' leader Secundino Ruiz in Honduras." Gunmen paid and protected by the Pentagonistas. Whenever a soldier tells me how "lucky" I am to be here in America rather in the Banana Republics he was deployed to, TO MAKE SURE CONDITIONS NEVER CHANGE THERE, AND TO BACK UP THE GOON SQUADS OF HIS AND THEIR CORPORATE MASTERS I think of this. But, hey, TeaBags, other RepubliKlan sucks, be proud! You're trying your best to make sure your own families have to live under the same slavery. And it's only acknowledged as theft when the Corporations are required to pay a fraction of what they've stolen back to the people who stole it for them.

The Wondrous Tale of Brer Lamborn, Brer FOX & Obama the Tar Baby. Uncle Remus and Racism in Colorado Springs.

COLORADO SPRINGS- If US Rep. Doug Lamborn (R-CO) remembered one thing from the Uncle Remus stories, it was not to touch that Tar Baby! You know, the one Brer Rabbit mistook for a cute black infant who would not tip his hat to his better. Or was that a Porch-Monkey? Colorado's 5th District is unclear about the distinction if the local media and Fox News are to be believed. Either term refers to a poor person whose sticky problems become your "quagmire" if you ignore your natural prejudice to their skin color and you let them touch you. Can a representative of bigots be bothered to know if a racial slur is offensive? According to Lamborn, he can't. More important, the congressman reiterates --as he professes his apology to people taking umbrage at racism he hadn't intended to express-- is: NOT TO TOUCH THAT OBAMA!   To be clear, Doug Lamborn hasn't apologized to his constituents, he's only claimed to have sent President Obama a letter, assuring all that Obama, the black untouchable, will have the grace to forgive him as "a man of character".   And so this Uncle Remus tale simply goes on... The story so far Lamborn calls black US president a Tar-Baby, public outrage ensues, Gazette newspaper lends support to Lamborn's excuse that Tar-Baby wasn't used in racist sense. Protests held by NAACP, community groups and local progressives, all which Lamborn refuses to meet. Lamborn office erects sign NO PROTESTS. ACT II: Lamborn office calls for his supporters to rally, presumably under the "no protest" sign. His office issues a press release: AP, Fox News, national and statewide outlets report before the fact that LAMBORN SUPPORTERS RALLY. Huffpo and Springs activists scramble to get images of said protest sanctioned despite "no protest" sign, find none. Local TV station KOAA which had depicted rally with a photo, hours before it was alleged to happen, omitted to mention photo was from file, conveniently unfocused and likely of a past year election event. With every shenanigan, the theme resounds: the Colorado Springs establishment supports what Doug Lamborn said about Obama being a Tar Baby. Racism in Colorado Springs No one is in denial about the unsavory support behind Doug Lamborn. So does Colorado Springs support his bigotry? Does the Tea Party shit in Acacia Park? You should see those clan gatherings, you can't find a parking space for blocks, then it's a sea of hate-filled white faces, with Doug Lamborn right there up front. The comment section of every local media blog overflows with indignation that "Tar-Baby" is being construed to be racist. Commentators assert their preference for Freedom of Speech over Political Correctness. BTW, Colorado Springs is as segregated as Chicago, with black neighborhoods, churches and schools. Many lives never cross the path of another of different ethnicity, so we're blameless actually when we conclude there's no racism here. Except toward Hispanics, grouped conveniently with illegal immigrants, who don't count, by definition, according to our favorite definition: legality. Same as used to apply to slaves. The

Jim Bowie’s Noble Gesture of freeing his servant Sam

At the Alamo during the Texas Land Grab Disguised As A Revolution while he was waiting to be overrun and killed.   Mighty "white" of him but, hey, the manumission papers were a useless formality. One of the excuses used for stirring up the revolution was "deprivation of property rights" meaning that General Antonio Jose y Maria Lopez de Santa Ana had, through the enforcement of the Guerrero Proclamation, emancipation papers for anybody in Mexico (including, legally, San Antonio) who was held as a slave. This wasn't done as a slap in the face for the white Anglo colonists, who hadn't (yet) become quite the pestilence they would later be. Instead it freed up the Indian and Mestizo slaves owned by the Spanish overlords. The Mexican Emancipation Proclamation predated the U.S. one by about 4 decades. Not exactly a "backwards and ignorant" nation. So Sam was already technically free. Three slaves were known to be at the Battle of the Alamo; a boy named John was killed, while William B. Travis's slave Joe and James Bowie's slave Sam survived to be freed by the Mexican Army (from wikipedia) What got me thinking about it is Rick GoodHair Perry announcing his candidacy. Not just any Jackass Retardican, he's one of those currently celebrating the 150th (sesquicentennial) anniversary of the founding of the Confederacy and the start of a four year campaign in which a half million Americans were murdered by other Americans over the States' "right" to systematically deprive Americans of their liberty. But of course to hear the various Confederate Heritage groups lie through their bloodstained teeth, it wasn't actually about Slavery... just the states' "rights" to maintain slavery, and also they smoothly lie that it wasn't about Racial Hatred, even though the Americans they were holding as slaves happened to be of a much darker skin color. Slavery, in the Rick Perry-Republican-TeaBag DoubleSpeak, is an act of love. And, it's not like Perry actually believes the lies he tells. His FOLLOWERS, however, are exactly that STUPID that they do. Massive underfunding of Public Education shown in all it's glorious wonder. Look for the Texas Ignorance Campaign to spread across AmeriKKKa oh, wait, it already has, never mind! The RepubliKlan Party hates public education because Public Ignorance is their one power base. Just look at the Morons in Iowa and the Racist Lunatic they just selected in their straw poll.

Corporate Supreme Court backed Mall-Wart in Anti-Worker decision

Again. How much did it cost the Walton Empire to have the Supremes sing for them? I should shut up about that, I guess, I could be theoretically held in Contempt of Corporation. WalMart could sue ME for definition of character. Their pet monkeys at the Supreme Court would back them up on it. Nothing new there. Get back to work, Slave! Slaves have no rights that the WalMart Empire or the Supreme Court have to acknowledge! If you're not a Billion Dollar Corporation the U.S. Senate, House of "representatives", President and especially not the Police, Courts, or Military don't represent your broke ass. Tote that barge, lift that bale or however the song goes. Don't forget to say thank you to your Prison Work Gang Overseers errr I mean, Police and Military as you head away from the work area and toward your sleeping quarters at Gulag Walmart. Use that 2 1/2% employee discount that will be given to you in the next "fair and impartial" Court Decision to purchase a cheap flag and cheaper Magnetic Yellow Ribbon at $1.88 apiece instead of $1.93, plus tax, cause you'll pay taxes but your Owners "employers" don't. Remember, they gave you the freedom to be exploited by the Rich Bitches. Freedom is defined by your Slave Owners.

Wikileaks- US State Dept ties Haitian aid to acceptance of wage slavery

When the outgoing Haitian Govt insisted on the whopping huge $5 a DAY minimum wage instead of the three dollars a day being offered by the Corporate-owned U.S.A.I.D., their pet sellouts at State Dept, which has been trying to put a stranglehold on who does or does not do business with Haiti since, like, Forever, endorsed a U.S.A.I.D. report that Haiti wasn't as badly harmed by the earthquake and thus, the Haitian people owe the aid money back. Welcome to the Global Plantation. I wonders, yes I does, how much Gov Scott Walker, Rep Paul Ryan, Gov LePage of Maine, Rick GoodHair of Texas, The Chambers of Commerce, and their Local Anti-worker ToolsTrained Monkeys like Paige, Patchsi, Janis Heuberger, Jeff Crank, Malkin, Tancredo, and the entire City Council, the Mayor and County Commissioners have in their own personal stock portfolios on this? Slavery by low wage and high debt IS their main way of doing business. How about it, anti-Union anti-Working Class PUNKS? Sound off on how morally superior and righteous you are in defense of Slavery.

Shit I learned in school

...because, really, I DO believe there's a deliberate sabotage of Public Education being done simply by handing a "liberal" program over to be administered by "conservatives". In 7th grade in Texas you're taught Texas History. Some of it would be almost unrecognizable from a Yankee point of view. For instance, we were taught that the Civil War wasn't about slavery, it was about State's Rights. State's Rights to spend civic money and exercise military and police powers to enforce slavery. We were also told, and I have reason to believe that it's gotten worse, we were told that the Slaves were well treated, given decent food and housing, and Medical Care. Happy Days on de ol' Plantation wif all de Darkies singin' and happy and de Massa jes' lubbin all of dem! O, de sun shines bright on my old Kentucky home it's summer and the darkies are gay... You smile and laugh and sing because the Massah would beat you and maybe have you killed if you indicated any dissatisfaction with the arrangement. It's that simple. The Slaves were all Happy and Content and Well Treated... so why do the Corporate Slaveholders of the Modern Plantation, the ones who advance this bald-face lie about how good slaves had it, refuse to provide health care and good nutrition and housing for their Debt-slaves? Is it only profitable to provide a decent standard of living if you outright OWN the workers? They don't make too much comment about how these Happy, Contented Slaves all smilin' and singin' and the Good Massah lubbin' every one of dem... why they would be forbidden to take any outside employment in their spare time, to perhaps earn enough money to buy their freedom? The Prison System uses a similar tactic to keep its slaves from escaping, if you're caught with money you're punished. Likewise the Slaves were forbidden Education, even so much as to teach a slave to read was punishable by death. And to BE that slave? Thus are the scions of the Debt Slaves treated now, public education being snatched away from our kids and allocated only to the children of the Merchant master class. And health care and nutrition... look to the TeaTards with their anger and hatred toward people who actually receive health care, which the TeaTard Hate Freak leaders say only the Wealthy deserve. Of course they will LIE and say they're only looking out for States Rights.... Corporate State rights to hold people in slavery. And threatening a new Civil War in which they'll kill a lot of Americans to keep things that way. Them Corporate Slaveowners sho' does love them the idea of Killing Americans. Why I believe the Texas History Textbooks are being slanted more to the right... Rick "GoodHair" Perry, fascist dictator of Texas, said the older textbooks were too Liberal WTF? And in Texas the Governor determines the curriculum for the schools in the entire state. So look for even MORE brainwashed morons who will grow up thinking that keeping human beings in bondage and Killing PEOPLE

Ms Czeladtko, temper temper…

Threatening people with police action for making fun of you? That's not the actions of somebody who isn't Fascist. Especially when the most pointed barbs were about your sneering condemnation of people you consider inferior because of their economic status. Apparently, making the arbitrary decision that people who are so desperately poor that they're actually not able to find housing... are "insane".. That's a little over the top, don't you see? Saying further that anybody who even LOOKS homeless should be banned from parks and other publicly funded places and services, "to protect the children" was really just God-damned stupid. Also hateful. Vicious. And displays the attitude that PikesPeakOcean and JCP1800 lampooned so thoroughly. You've sent out a clear message that you're intending to represent the Rich more "equally" than the Poor. And that was before you pulled the Typical Colorado Springs Establishment stunt of threatening dissidents with police actions. Publicly. Shoot, even the cops are usually smarter than that, announcing publicly beforehand that they intend to violently repress dissidents. Does your paid boyfriend Chacon of the Gazette have the power to spin this? Sorry, Chacon, but don't you wish, ever, that you worked as a REAL journalist for a REAL newspaper that has things like Ethical Standards? No wonder their parent corporation is in bankruptcy. It's almost superfluous to point out that the "leaders" of the Colorado Springs Establishment are morally challenged. Unfortunately there are some people in town who Just Don't Get It. They get the Gazette instead. Being openly in favor of the "Give More Money to the Rich and everything will work better for everybody" Politico-economic structure, the one which has consistently tanked, time after time after time, leaving more people in poverty each time, pretty much seals the deal. Why not just work as a Paid Lobbyist for the Very Rich? Oh, that's right, you're running for office HERE. My bad.

Tripoli and the Original Intent of the Founding Great White Fathers.

You know the first line of the Marine Corps Hymn, ends with "to the shores of Tripoli" So, why, exactly, was Tripoli so important? Well, since American Capitalism was and still is heavily dependent on goods and services produced by Slavery, an important slave-shipping region like the Barbary Coast (North Africa from western Egypt to the Gibraltar Straits) was the "Raw Material" source for American, British and French Capitalism. Slaves. Human cargo. The Bush family and the Harvard trust and the Yale trust got simultaneously Fantastically Wealthy through the 'necessary evil'.   Capital can only work if the Richest make other HUMAN BEINGS poorer. The "rising tide lifts all boats" bullshit is simply that. In a system of finite resources, and there is no resource which isn't... the Rich can only gain and maintain their wealth at the expense of everybody else. Just as with Roman Capitalism, the foundation of that wealth has to come from conquest. The "free" market = the Slave Market. The Barbary Pirates as they're usually called in American History also made huge amounts of money selling captive Africans to White European-stock Americans like Washington, Hamilton, Jefferson. Those who didn't own slaves, benefited by transporting, selling and providing the "seed money" Capital to the Slave Industry. They rode the whip-shredded backs of African slaves to "freedom" and wealth. For a short while the Barbary Coast slave traders worked it in both directions. Not that the American and British and French "christian" Slavers were averse to white people being enslaved, heck no. They had plenty of white slaves themselves, just held in bond through chains of debt. Get the Suckers to believe that if they work really hard for really low wages and then turn around and re-invest part of their meager fortune into the Corporations of Their Masters, like a 401-k plan, and they too might become wealthy. It was a lie then and a lie now. But the "pirates" perhaps by mistake sold some of the Aristocrats into slavery. OOPS. So, the Marines were sent in. Actually, the Marines lost. It would be considered humiliating, if they couldn't spin it somehow. While they were busily trying to arrange a coup-d'etat, which failed, The "pirates" renegotiated their supply contract with the American envoys, with a clause that they should refrain from taking White Aristocrats as slaves. So the Marines, to save face, have to say that their machinations, which failed, and cost Marine lives, must have frightened the "pirates" into compliance. When instead it was just (slave) business as usual. A miscommunication between divisions of essentially the Same Corporate Entity. Nothing to see here, SLAVE Citizen, keep moving, get the Hell back to work, nothing to see...

To the so called “Conservatives”: Merry God-Damn Free Market!

You know how the Adam Smith/Reagan/Ayn Rand brainwashed disciples preach that "A rising tide lifts all boats". What they don't mention is the Rich have it rigged so their Wage Slaves can't afford a God-Damn boat. They'll also get some Really Stupid Morons like the TeaBags and any other non-wealthy person Retarded enough to do their bidding, tell the rest of the working class that there actually IS opportunity if only we save enough money from our slave-wage jobs to invest, we'll get a whole $50 a week from our 401k if we work ourselves to death putting millions of times that much in the pockets of the Rich Bitches. All y'all who say otherwise, boy Howdy! The professional liars who work for the Filthy Rich Pigs sure got YOU! Problem is you bastards are too God-Damn DUMB to know it. You'll even voluntarily go to other countries and kill other working class people so your Rich Masters can rob them the same way they rob YOUR dumb asses. They'll even tell you you're fighting for "freedom" and that you're giving the people you're slaughtering an "opportunity" and "civilization" Yeah, you're giving them the opportunity and freedom to be good little Civilized Slaves who don't talk back.just like your retarded slave ass, and your children who you're selling into the same slavery.Or if they don't accept that "opportunity" you'll kill them. In a "civilized" manner of course. And their kids. What's up with the babykilling, you realize that once you slaughter some kids' families right in front of them they'll hate you forever? Worried that once they get big enough to pick up a gun they'll blow your Slave-Soldier sons and daughters to Hell, to join you? That's what your Leaders say. There's a quote that's attributed to Custer, and Chivington, and Sherman, "Nits make lice". The reason it's attributed to so many is your Leaders echo each other. A LOT. That's another point with you Stupid so-called "conservatives". You're too damned retarded to come up with your own sayings, so you repeat shit your leaders tell you to chant. Support the troops, back the badge, My country right or wrong, love or leave it, Four legs good, two legs baaaaaaaaddddd.... And if you don't go overseas to murder civilians to keep the others from questioning the so-called "authority" of your Rich Bitch Masters, you can get a similar job as a Police Officer right here. Lick them Rich Folks boots, BOY! Slurrrrrp slurrrrppp slurrrpppppppppp! You stupid bastards sho' does love you some bootlickin'. I know because you keep insisting that I join you for a feast of Rich Folks' shoe polish. Sometimes threatening or even on occasion committing acts of violence in order to try to get me to join you in your slavery. Jokes on you, your Rich Bitch masters aren't going to allow YOU to be anything more than their servants. Your kids and grandkids too.

So-called Free Market Capitalism doesn’t pay its bills

It instead leeches off Tax-supported Publicly paid enterprises like the Army and Police agencies, not coincidentally the only agencies they want to be continued to have Public Funding...Allow the wealthiest to not pay taxes on money they obtained through blatantly aggressive Government Interventions in the so-called "free" markets by using publicly funded Soldiers to take over any of the competing trade partnerships aka "Sovereign Nations" by extreme violence or the threat thereof. The Ayn Rand worshipers wouldn't be able to obtain the agricultural and mineral riches of MesoAmerica by their own machinations, even were they willing (unlike the huge majority of their favorite Mouthpieces like Reagan, Bush, John Wayne, Limbaugh, Coulter, Malkin, O'Reilly, Beck etc ... chickenhawks on parade) to use their OWN physical presence and risk their OWN worthless parasitic lives to do so. Their "superior" Invisible Hand of the "free" market wasn't in any way capable to take over even ONE nation, even the Stone-age technology nations they much more than decimated (decimated means taking only ten percent off, and the slaughter left alive more like 7%, more than NINE TIMES mere decimation) first through disease and then through violence using "superior" technologies against, again, Stone Age peoples. The Pilgrims and Puritans they worship as being Godlike Beings had Publicly Funded armies and navies behind them when they conquered the Northeastern U.S., not exactly Daniel Boone Striding Alone Into The Wilderness... (he was slightly more than a century later and even he, brave though he might have been, had the British Army backing him up. Even if they weren't sharing his camp) All that Publicly funded conquest is the basis for American Wealth but even the Rich White-boy so-called "Founding Fathers" weren't willing to pay the rent on the Soldiers and Equipment used to gain their financial base. They're not willing to pay the workers and even their own Corporate Partners who provide the construction and maintenance of the infrastructure, dams, water treatment, roads, that they would need to continue gaining their wealth. With "no new taxes" but plenty of new construction, at Public Expense and the most immediate benefit from that construction going to the "no taxes" manipulators and their mouthpieces like Doug Bruce and Tom Tancredo they say, literally, "We want you to sell us your labor, and your materiel, for a minuscule fraction of what it costs you to produce it, and if you don't give us what we want we'll have the Publicly Paid tax-supported Army and Police force you to comply, just like they did and still do in all the other Conquered Territories which pay THEIR tributes into our 'free' Market system" They're treating American workers the way they've treated the forced-labor of every "lesser" economy in the World, again, using the Fascist "freedom fighters" in the Police and Military, private and public to force us to comply the same way the "Operation Iraqi Freedom" PIGS force the Iraqi people to comply with their Corporate Whore-lords. Again, just like the Tea-Bag and other Right Wing Terrorist Extremists,

The Census and Original Intent of the Founding Aristocrats

Since we have a lot of loudmouth Know-it-all know-nothings running their collective head, in chorus, paid by the richest men in America to cement the notion of an American Aristocracy based on personal wealth, Who tell us every hour of every day that they, and ONLY They, know the original intent of a group of arbitrarily assigned White Aristocrats they call the "Founding Fathers", a group which includes up to ... actually less than, 100 of the richest men in America. Out of the 3,929,326 MEN and only MEN counted in the first census in 1790. Never mind that even the very tiny INSIGNIFICANT representative sample they define as the "Founding Fathers" never unanimously agreed on any single issue, and that John Adams, one of the Richest of the bunch, granted himself arbitrary powers in a definition of the Sedition Acts to jail people who disagreed with his personal agenda. Or that there wasn't a Majority Consensus on the Bill of Rights, which wasn't included in the Original Constitution. Or that of those 3,929,326 MEN more than half weren't allowed to VOTE for who got to represent them... No Taxation without representation? How about "No REPRESENTATIVE DICTATORSHIP without Representation"? Their "original intent" is considered irrelevant by the Pompous Ass Pseudo-Intellectuals who are trying to force their Elitist (just not actually "elite") agenda on the rest of us. What of the OTHERS who had to bear the burdens of the conflicted and contradictory mandates from the Tiny Minority Even Of The Landed Aristocracy who are arbitrarily assigned the title "Founding Fathers" but not only weren't given the Vote, they weren't even COUNTED. Women, Children, Bonded (slavery through debt) and people Born Slaves weren't counted. Nor were the Native Americans in the territories claimed by the White Aristocratic Tiny Minority. Actually, slaves were counted as "Property" not as human population. Wonderful group of Role Models you Right Wing Extremists have there. In 1860 American Indians were counted, but only those who had "renounced" tribal affiliations, and of course, the sovereignty CONSTITUTIONALLY defined by Treaty (Article VI) which was recognized on paper but virtually never at gunpoint. Nor were these Americans who had given up their tribal rights accorded any citizenship rights until 1911, more than a half century later. The United States in 1790 consisted of the 13 original states and the territories that later became the states of Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin, Maine, Vermont, Kentucky, Tennessee, and Alabama. Notice that save for Maine and Vermont, (two French words actually) the other territories have American Indian names. There's a reason for that. Actually "Indiana" was designated as an entirely Indian territory, hence the name. Then number of American Indians IN WHAT WAS THE UNITED STATES at the time was far greater than the number of those Americans counted as "citizens" and a HUGE difference between their population and the fewer than 100 Rich Bitches who are said to be the Last and Only deciders of American Law. So, are we to join their Rush to turn

Celebrity Leaders of the Anti-Peasant Crusade

Why is Lou Dobbs considered an "expert" on Immigration, but not Colbert? Now they're barking because Colbert testified in Congress as an "expert witness". And say that his only expertise was that he's a "Celebrity" Say whut? The problem they're having with his expertise isn't the shock to the senses that your first day of Field Labor is to ANYBODY. (It's why the Founding Fathers "hired" slaves to do it for them, because let's face it, if George Washington or Madison or Jefferson had to go out and cut their own damn tobacco and sugar cane (cotton wasn't a cash crop until later) they would have starved. Labor built the fortunes of the "Founding Fathers" the same way Labor builds the fortunes of the Capitalists today.) But they're claiming that his "expert" status was somehow due to his status as a Celebrity. So, what now, do they stop listening to that stupid John Wayne Record about how honorable it is to join the Army, travel to exotic places, meet interesting people, and Kill Them? Since John Wayne's only expertise on war and military was that he portrayed Soldiers in some of his movies. Same with Ronald Reagan, George W, Romney, Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Ted Nugent, Ann Coulter, Michelle Malkin, Tom Tancredo, Bill O'Reilly, Rudi Giuliani, Lou Dobbs... The only experiences they had as "warriors" is that they dodged the draft and sent other people to kill and die in their stead. And they have an equivalent level of expertise in Immigration, Constitutional Law, Religion, Terrorism, or any of the other "Celebrity Expertise" they tout, and yes, even instruct the Right Wing Lunatic members of Congress on those subjects. Ted Nugent boasted that he "beat the draft" by shitting on himself then not bathing for a month before his Draft Board examination. Convinced the doctors he was crazy. Instead of just being a chickenshit. Now he supports all Wars and dares people to disagree with him. Kind of the same way Sarah Palin told people not to sit down or shut up, unless they "heckled" her, then she had Government police paid by Tax Money to enforce for her and violently remove anybody who dared to speak against her. Ted Nugent would do that same thing if you tried to take up his challenge at one of HIS hate rallies. Even though he's prancing around the stage, like the silly bitch he truly is, with an allegedly fully loaded machine gun. He'd still have somebody else do his fighting for him. But not a whimper from the Right Wing Noise Factory about HIS use of a "celebrity status" to tout their bullshit for them. Rudi Giuliani is a typical Pig, former prosecutor, like local Celebrities Ken Buck and Doug Bruce, meaning they stood in court, hiding behind their PIG comrades to make sure nobody gets "uppity" with them, and talk like they're "Tough Guys". Chickenshits and Pigs, Chickenhawks all. Giuliani is touted as an "Expert" in Terrorism because

Ron Kovic, Private Nation and the mystique of the Token Cripple

Because I get the same kind of crap in lower doses than Kovic and Max Cleland did and still do. When you become disabled at work you're supposed to be grateful for any crust of bread thrown your way, and condemned as a whiner if you point out the guilt of the parties who brought you to that state. With war veterans it's worse. Ron Kovic and Max Cleland were "just fine" in the eyes of the Pentagon, until they started opposing the war, then they were and still are demonized. The Pentagoons, while Cleland was fighting to survive, leaving 3 of his limbs on the cutting room floor, (mixed metaphor there, cutting room is about films) his commanders were filling out paperwork exonerating themselves from any blame for what they had done to him. Like Kovic, and Private Nation, and John Kerry, and Flight Lt Joseph "Country" MacDonald, he was treated with the military equivalent of Honor as long as he consented to be the Token. The Warrior returning and still supporting a lost war. Touching, Heartwarming, (heartburn) but once they chose to speak out, save for Private Nation, they were the darlings of every parade, supporting sending even MORE young people off to kill other people in other lands, other mother's sons... except for Private Nation. Who was Private Nation, you ask? He was one of my ancestors. He, too, fought for the losing side, a hundred years earlier. Late in the war, the Civil one... hence, he wasn't fighting to kill and die in Foreign Lands... he took a Minie ball upside his temple, tore off a chunk of his skull. Surgeon told him, "Private, that's going to kill you eventually" and sure enough, 80 years later, it did. But he was a Confederate. He was fighting for the "states' rights" cause. You know the one, the States' Right to deny Liberty or even the definition of Humanity to HUMAN BEINGS based solely on the shade of their skins, and to deny them that Liberty before they were even born. And to use State Funds and State Police Powers to ensure that they remained in Slavery. In short, he was fighting not for States' Rights, but for States' WRONGS. In VietNam, and now Iraq and Afghanistan, the Slave Owners live off premises, but it's still the same concept. Still sending in the Private Nation and the Ron Kovic of the modern age. And if you get pieces of you blown off, you're supposed to accept it, be rolled around in the parades like a Good Little Cripple, patted on the head and sternly warned not to say anything at all against the regime. If Gunnery Sgt Nick Popavitch, proudly supporting the military that cost his eye and, really, their honor and his... If he ever stands up and says it's wrong he won't be their Tame Token Cripple anymore, and can expect His Comrades will turn on him like a pack of starving wolves on a pork chop. That's

Between Iraq and a Hard Place, Slave Labor + Corporate Welfare = Warfare

Since all available national resources are being called in to fight what's the worst unnatural disaster and getting worse, to smite us in a long while, it pays to recognize one huge fact. The equally Corporate Welfare To The Oil Industry wars against Afghan and Iraqi people (for Corporate Profit-not "freedom") and the beneficiaries of this hastily pulled in Public Largesse, an Oil Corporation, BP, which presumably has more corporate money available than the entire U.S. Government does, is "big-assing" us on the subject of actually having to eventually repay the U.S. and State governments... Like Exxon-Valdez being blamed on the actions of one employee, who was imprisoned, and saddled further with a debt that's in the hundred billion dollar range, leaving the Creditors to twist in the wind (Exxon to fishermen: don't blame us, we ain't paying you a thing, F.O.A.D.) It pays, however little, to realize that the main reason for the lack of Federal Funding is the Corporate Welfare given to several of the Largest and Wealthiest entities in THE FRACKIN' WORLD, MON!!! including the very expensive for actual taxpaying citizens, as opposed to Tax-Dodging Corporate "citizens", Wars of Conquest which benefit exactly Whom? Why, the same Oil Companies, like BP, who are expecting the underfunded Federal Government to clean up their little oopsie. And are already filing briefs countering the expected bill coming their way. How very DARE those Peasants demand that we pay for the damage we do? They're also deploying Texas and Louisiana Inmate Unpaid Slave Laborers to fight the damage. Sweet, eh? The ultimate use of Slavery for the benefit of the Ultimate Slave Corporations. If there's any payment made to the Texas Department of Criminal Justice, or the Louisiana counterparts, the Slaves ain't gonna get any of it, not an extra bean on their plates. Same as always.

Obama breaks truth to widows: Miners died as Corporate Slaves, get used to it

Not really. He said they died in pursuit of a better life. But since the Coal Companies and other Corporate owners of West Virginia aren't going to actually invest anything in developing some other way for the people who live there to survive, and the people have not nearly enough opportunity to build their own enterprises, it IS a cycle of corporate slavery. The Horatio Alger and Ragged Dick rags-to-riches stories were Bullshit when they were first published, and still are today. The Mine Workers union song popularized by "Tennessee" Ernie Ford, 16 Tons, says it more realistically. "you load 16 tons what do ya get? Another day older and deeper in debt St Peter don'cha call me cause I can't go I owe my soul to the Company Store." The same people who lobby hard against Unions and fair wages, lobby for "Tort Reform" meaning a Landlord's Lien not only on your possessions, should you default on your lease, but a period of bond-service, debt slavery, should you default. The Mining corporations, in particular, used this as a way of keeping the workers docile. The Company Store, just that, the only way you could get groceries or clothing or any other necessities of life was to purchase them from a commissary owned by the Company. Your lodgings were also owned by the Company. A rigged system where you always owed the Boss for the privilege of working for him. Paid less than you're forced to spend to survive. Try to leave and you get a warrant for your arrest under the Fugitive Laws, have the equivalent of Dog the Bounty Hunter chasing you down, putting you into the County Prison to work out your debt. In a county that's owned by, you guessed it, your Loving Employer. America is sliding backward into that quagmire of Corporate Dictatorship. The saddest part, many of the miners and their families actually eat that crap up with a spoon, the Corporate Lies that they're working for a better future and for their freedom, and that of their children. It's a shameful thing for ONE political party to pay homage to that Blatant Lie. For ALL of the three largest political parties in America, Democratic, Republican, and Tea Parties, to pander to that meaningless CRAP is beyond shameful. Maybe he simply misspoke, and was off by one letter, they were working for a bItter life.

Hysterical Revisionist Virginia Tea Party attempts another test of Anti-Smart Bomb Strategy, EPIC FAIL!

As we approach the Sesquicentennial (150 years) of the Civil War (massive contradiction in terms) the Commonwealth of Virginia attempted to pass off a "Confederate History Month" with no mention whatsodamnever of slavery. Even with decades of attempting to show that display of the Confederate Southern Cross battle flag (not an official confederate national flag, incidentally) is somehow not a symbol of Racism.   (These colors don't run... A God-Damn thing.) The slogan "Not Hate - Heritage!!" is on posters, tee-shirts, bumper stickers, pasted onto Bibles, whatever and wherever. Pure Chumba-Wumba. "Sure, we don't hate us no Nigras, we just feel y'all are so inferior to us that we can deprive you of liberty directly from birth, just on account of the color of your skin" Due to the institutionalized "right" for the slave "owners" to RAPE any one of the slaves they wished at any time, unless a Black American is a recent immigrant from Africa, he's got Confederate heritage too. They've been teaching, for generations, that the Confederacy wasn't about Slavery, that it was "States' Rights"... Meaning, the state has the right to spend Public Money, and use State police and court powers, to the direct benefit of Private Corporations who systematically denied Liberty to Human Beings, based on the color of their skin. And they're STILL trying to push off this Racist Lie as being real. It has a double edge to it, first the Rich Bastards who would profit from another civil war, or think they would, believe that Black and Hispanic and Indian Southerners will be STUPID enough to ignore the history, much of it very recent, of Racism openly displayed alongside the Confederate battle flag. They also believe that WHITE Southerners will be retarded enough to believe it, so, y'all rednecks, guess what? The slavery cartel think YOU are stupid too. Now, here's the fun part. The Governor of Virginia, and the Governor of Texas, both have loudly threatened to secede over the pure Arrogance of a Black man bucking THEIR system and actually being elected President. They deny it, but then, they deny that Slavery was the reason for secession and for the Confederacy and for the Civil War. To use a Jewish saying, they're pissing on our collective leg and saying that it's rain. But the Citizens of the Commonwealth, a HUGE bloc of voters, who voted in the 70 MILLION voter bloc who rejected the Racist Regime of Bush and his annointed replacement Sarah Failin' and John McInsane... forced the newly elected governor (the one who is supposedly a rejection of the Black President by the same voters) to concede on this. So, will Texas, and Virginia, and Tennessee, etc.. actually Secede? Fat Chance. The last time Texas seceded the black and hispanic and Native American Indians didn't have the vote, were forbidden by law to own firearms, and the Blacks were forbidden under pain of well, PAIN to learn to read, and the death penalty for anybody who TAUGHT slaves to read. They continued this "Not Hate" tradition
