Pig Rampage in Denver, Oakland camp “cleared out” … for now…

The DPD was assaulting the Occupy PEOPLE yesterday, and squealing like the pigs they are when people actually shoved back. What do the stormtroopers think, they’ll just beat people up, gas us, shoot us with “non-lethal” projectiles, taser us, and we’ll be so grateful for them “putting us in our place” which would be, by their calculations, kneeling in front of them slurping their mothe.. Jackboots? “Oh, Yassuh, boss, we uns gon’ be good fo’ y’all fine gentlemens… and thank you boss for giving us the Freedom to lick your God-Damn Balls.”
We’ll undoubtedly be welcoming them as liberators, with flowers and candy.
LIKE HELL. 

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.

Spank a Vet with a warm fuzzy Attaboy

For those who think that the Peace people dishonor the veterans, think a bit on what the most prominent campaigns has to offer in the way of humiliation. One of the “new and improved” corporate motivational methods is called “peer recognition” because research showed that workers don’t want to actually be, you know, adequately paid for our labor which enriches our bosses and impoverishes us. No, we want the empowerment of “recognition” for our good deeds. Say (and this happens far too often to be hypothetical) you have an innovation that saves your company many times your annual salary. What does the boss do to reward you?
 
First he patents your innovation and declares it corporate intellectual property, then gives you an award ceremony where he more or less pats your head and tells you “Attaboy!” which those English speakers who own dogs might recognize. There’s even an award letter, usually hand-written by your supervisor, saying “Attaboy!” and sometimes a Warm Fuzzy, which is a recognition pin that looks kind of like a piece of pocket lint or a dust-bunny from under a desk. How special, right? Your peers get to recognize that your contribution made the boss wealthier and as a reward you get treated like a dog in front of God and everybody. In the Military, the ultimate enforcement arm of the Corporate Empire, you get something called a “medal” or a “service ribbon” and there’s even a medal for not getting arrested for a year. Seriously.

This type of manipulative behavior is as old as the idea of organized military. A pay and benefits raise would be a lot more meaningful than a piece of brass or maybe silver with a recycling value of maybe a buck. But gosh darn it, that would be Too Expensive. So the Corporates, the sole beneficiaries of Military Action, get to go even further with the “Thank A Vet” campaign, they get their publicly subsidized (corporate welfare) non-employees to do a really dangerous job, people who are being robbed of THEIR essential rights and freedoms in the name of making Americans (or at least their corporate owners) Free (to take all the resources of the subjugated nations and kill anybody who resists) tend to fight back. Throw airplanes at “our” buildings and such.

Add in that the equipment the military uses, at great public expense and huge private profits to the Corporates, is usually dangerous in itself. Take Depleted Uranium, (please) which makes a steel shell more massive in less space. Those of you who understand ballistics would appreciate that and those who don’t, study it. It’s simple Newtonian physics. With a titanium tip and an explosive charge it can go through any armor. “Terror” groups who are targeted by, say, American or British tanks realize this and if they can obtain an intact round (one that didn’t get smashed or exploded) will re-load it and send it back. The uranium, the heaviest naturally occurring element, has value especially in small pieces to be used in a “dirty bomb”. (The Corporates, natural born and then trained Terrorists themselves, unleash “dirty bombs” on Americans every damn day, witness the Toxic Waste Dump “Gold Hill Mesa” being sold as median priced McMansion real estate right here on the West Side of Colorado Springs.)

It’s also poisonous in the same way that mercury, lead and white arsenic are poisonous. A whole list of metals heavier than iron in fact.

Instead of paying the soldiers who contracted DU poisoning in the past few wars, the Publicly Funded enforcement arm of the Corporates, the Pentagon, denounced them as frauds, malingerers and punished them.

Thanks, Vet!

The same with Agent Orange. The Army investigators and lawyers (in Colorado that’s pronounced “liars”, true story) said something really scary about that, and it’s scary because it’s true. “The Military uses a vast array of chemicals to maintain the ‘safety’ of the bases” and coupled that with the truly chilling “there’s no significant difference between those exposed to Agent Orange and those soldiers who were not, in relation to cancers.”

True. Agent Orange is a weed killer, on base they can’t afford to have high brush, grass, weeds and trees. So they poison them. They also can’t have animals wandering around, snakes, the rodents on which the snakes feed, skunks, foxes, cats, dogs, or the local equivalents Bugs too. And of course birds. A bird being hit by an aircraft can seriously ruin the day for the pilot. And cost the Corporate Overlords a pretty penny for each (not really, the Corporates who gain the most from Military Action pay the least taxes, it’s the Taxpayers who pay).

And that parenthetical statement says a lot…

See, the “Thank A Vet” campaign, much lauded as Corporate Generosity, there’s a reason Corporate gift-giving is so well documented.

Because they don’t actually “give” the money or services. They deduct them from their taxes. Then do like they did in August and whine, snivel and wring their hands over the Deficit.

The “Thank A Vet” program, the “You are not forgotten” POW flags that line the pockets of Ross Perot and his butt-buddies like John McCain, publicly funded, most of them double-dipped public funds because they’re sold to municipalities. Can you think of a single government building that isn’t flying one of those retarded flags? And it’s based on a lie too, the Hanoi government turned over all the prisoners of war they were holding back in 1975. Notwithstanding all the Chuck Norris, Steven Seagal, Jean-Claud van Damm, Sylvester Stallone and other non-veterans-who-portray-soldiers-in-the-proud-tradition-of-Ronald Reagan-George Bush-and-John Wayne making a lot of money providing the propaganda that sells the flags.

Speaking of “double dipping” and George Bush, as in Bush the Elder, when he attained the presidency he ended “double dipping” meaning getting both CHAMPUS and Medicare benefits. Way to Thank A Vet, George!
My grandfather who had recently passed away had told me that I should have stayed in for the full twenty years because the Military would take good care of me in my old age. Yeah, right.

His widow, my Grandma, died penniless in a nursing home, her Social Security and Medicare benefits signed over to the home. Way To Thank A Vet, Reaganite Sucks!

The current wrangling over whether or not the Workers who EARNED the benefits of Social Security, SSI, Medicaid, etc… should actually receive them, with the theme that only the Rich deserve or even need to have leisure, discretionary income, health care, all the goodies that separate the industrialized world from the Third World… and the rest of us only need a warm fuzzy Attaboy!

George Bush the Chimpleton, by the way, actually went one step further in demeaning the people we’re supposed to pat on the head and tell them “Good Boy! Who’s a good boy? You’re a good boy, yes you are!”

He actually rubbed the head of a double amputee veteran in a photo-opportunity propaganda session at Walter Reed Army Medical Center.

The veteran was a Black man as well, the racist connotations of rubbing the head of a black person are well known, but it’s so God-damn Plantation Ignorant that even people in TEXAS don’t do it.

Keep your thanks, I’d rather have the money due me. I didn’t stay in the military long enough to get anything but a free grave when I die, but my very poorly paid service to the Corporations in the private “workforce” (they don’t even call us Human Resources anymore, how’s that for recognition?) wherein they tore my right foot half off while taking 5 times what they paid me, that in itself earns entitlements Due Wages. Just, you know, I realize I ain’t going to be paid.

Robot Workers

There’s a commercial for a well known insurance company that has a woman saying “To save money I enrolled my kids in a day care center run by robots”
 
And one for a hamburger chain which has a robot trying to eat one of their sandwiches “Machines can’t eat them, machines shouldn’t make them”. Noble sentiments that, but for the fact that an auto insurer and fellow earth-rapists like a Fast Food restaurant really aren’t doing much for humanity or the rest of the species on the planet either. Like self-checkout machines at stores. Designed to maximize profits by simply not paying humans. Some of them, like the ones at WalMart, go even further and bitch at you if you don’t scan or put money in fast enough. Service With A Snarl.

Meanwhile the WalMart franchise won yet another worker lawsuit where they fired a man who was hired to do another job, got sentenced to the Greeter Job but, he had suffered a stroke and could not raise the corners of his mouth in a smile so they fired him.

It’s a diseased system. Knowing it’s also a failing system is small comfort, because they’ll take the Real People down with them.

When a corporate entity says it puts workers first or customers first, the corporate lies through its inhuman teeth. It’s sad to see a very customer oriented industry going the way of total rudeness, both in hiring/firing the human beings who do exactly ALL of the work to put money into the bank accounts of the McCorporate McEmpire. And to the people who shop at their stores, pay good money to receive shitty service and shitty merchandise, with fewer and fewer choices of places to shop that aren’t wholly owned by the very tiny minority who own the vast majority of the wealth.

On the other hand, the Electronic Bitch robot checker actually DOES show the innate nastiness of the Corporate “person”.

Of course, it’s “crazy” or “stupid” to complain about such treatment, we know that because we have asinine comments posted from time to time praising the Capitalist system in the only way possible, not by cheering for any inherent goodness in the system (for there is none), but by making ad hominem attacks against any who dares to criticize.

Boo-McHaa-McHoo, Kids NOT being McBranded

McDonalds is upset. Their Corporate “News” McPartners are upset. San Francisco voters ratified a law requiring that toys only be placed in McHappy McMeals that don’t exceed the recommended daily allowance of calories.
Which, the vast majority of their food not only exceeds but doubles the recommended daily caloric, fat, sugars, and salt intake. Essentially the “Happy Meal” is a branding gimmick, sure, get the Stupid People to actually PAY for extra advertising. Mattel and Hasbro, makers of Violence Toys which promote militaristic stereotypes for boys and misogynistic stereotypes for girls, pay to have their “toys” advertising the full size and more expensive toys inserted into the kids’ meals. Not just teaching the kids that overeating on the one hand and toys that promote sedentary activities instead of the running, walking, action-packed ACTIVE activities that human children are naturally suited to doing during play time.
The McNews corporate whores here in town said the KIDS would be unhappy because of that, but really, did anybody force the PARENTS to not reward their kids with toys for eating a REAL meal with REAL food instead of the Fat-Food garbage?

I mean, really, does the Fat Food Industry really really really need to bribe the kids to eat their Deep Fried Grease? Do the parents need to bribe their kids to poison themselves? Does a supposedly impartial journalist like News 11 (Colorado Springs local) anchors did, have to be so blatantly partial and commercial in their promotion of Death to American kids?

Parents, if you want to reward your kids for bad behavior, like dietary habits that are nothing short of Suicidal, you should really be ashamed. But I get this sickening feeling that the guilty parties aren’t ashamed.

I know that some will actually pop off with Religious condemnations of San Francisco doing such a bad ol’ meanie thing as telling a Major Corporation not to poison their kids, mentally and physically, by selling them garbage and rewarding them for eating with.. more garbage.

Some of the toys also market the mind-destroying Disney Paradigm to kids. Sit and watch, kids, let the Nice TV tell you what you must think say and do. The Nice TV tells you not to bother doing anything, just sit and watch… watch and sit… until your parental units drive you to the Nice “restaurant” to buy more food in one meal than you need in a whole day, and to buy more advertising for Mr Nice TV to tell you to sit and watch, watch and sit, with a pause every now and then for eating Garbage.
