In a nutshell, this is Israel

The above was seen just tonight at the website of Haaretz, which is Israel's most important newspaper. Apparently the Jewish people in Israel see nothing wrong with inviting people from Kansas to go and live on land being stolen, step by step, from the original inhabitants of the country, while denying most of those original inhabitants any right to live on their own lands or return to them after they were robbed of their former properties. Is this not akin to how the German NAZIs started their Holocaust against the Jewish population off? They began by vandalizing Jewish properties and then stealing much of what was of worth, down to eventually the gold fillings in peoples' mouths. In a nutshell Israel, too, is a racist Apartheid State where one cultural/ religious group steals property from another by way of their own made up laws. Why is the US, where the right to security in holding one's property is supposedly a holy principle, does the majority of the population continue to support a whole group of people (some invited from Kansas to go live in Israel), who are whole scale using ethnic cleansing and theft from the Palestinians to increase the amount of their own property (land)? Certainly that is an extreme form of racial profiling, is it not? Jews get property, others lose it.... Why do Americans support for another people what they reject in their own country?

What’s wrong with privatizing public resources? Quite a lot, actually…

(Editor's note: Some Colorado Springs councilmen don't see anything wrong with leasing public assets for private profit. Is there anything wrong with that?)   Well, let's see. The City Council is so top heavy with Real Estate Brokers including Princess Barbie Czeladtko, and Tim Leigh, and if they get their Fascist way fellow Realtor Steve Bach as "strong mayor" who all ran on money donated by people who favor privatizing ALL public lands, from the BLM lands to the Indian Reservations to the National Parks, National Forests and... city and county parks. How would they do that without a conflict of interest? It seems they're throwing City Funds straight to their own businesses. Then there's an Issue Princess Barbie and a few of her friends (if self-absolbed Princesses HAVE "friends") blaming the drastic fall of real estate value on the visibility of poverty. Specifically the No-Camping ordinance which further punishes homeless PEOPLE for being poor. In a sense actually Demonizes them, the way Princess Lisa went on a screed about "The Homeless" PEOPLE participating in a church Pizza Party at a downtown park. one that's about three miles as the crow flies and four as the dog trots from prospect lake. She denounced one person for being in Her Most Learned Snap Diagnosis "schizophrenic". Something even REAL Doctors can't do without days of testing done by multi-disciplinary experts working as a team. It's simply wonderful that we have such arrogant bigots on City Council yes? The rest of her statement was truly fascist. She advocated that PEOPLE who have fewer dollars in their pockets should not be seen in public, and especially... Wait for it... Are you still waiting? It's Worth the Wait.... No really, it is... Public Parks, such as Prospect Lake and Memorial Park. Would the Colorado Springs Gestapo Department step up their already dictatorial and arbitrary denial of non-wealthy citizens to have the same access to Parks, Libraries and other PUBLIC places as the Princes and Princesses of the city? Some of Princess Lisa's allies in and out of City Government, going by names like Playsinsnow, Patchsi, Janis Heuberger, Beep-beep... Have suggested without one word of protest from City Council, banning anybody who LOOKS homeless from City facilities. Because, you see, "public" in their definition means only the Rich part of the "public" and the rest of us can simply eat their shit. And they have this Capitalist Mythos which says that the Real Estate Crash was caused by the actions of people who cumulatively own a fraction of 1% of the wealth in this town or the nation or world as whole entities. Instead of by the actions of Greed-mongers such as those, like Real Estate Brokers, who bought and sold the idea that a finite resource, land, constantly rising in price, would bring THEM infinite wealth. Like Ponzi Schemes, Chain Letters and Pyramid businesses, it fell apart and took America down with them. And now, many, including some on City Council, like Leigh and Princess Barbie, are blaming the poorest of the poor for causing it by being seen in

Sarah Palin and the Republican Lie of “sacrifice”

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

Petition Sallie Clark not to groom Lisa Czeladtko city council campaign

Conflict of interest, anyone? County Commissioner is one of those "low paid" jobs in local government which pays off hugely in graft money, if one is so disposed to take advantage of that opportunity, by voting tax breaks, zoning laws (enforced at Public Expense) and other Pork-barrel subsidies for the actual paying business of the Commissioner. Quasi-legalized Grand Theft would be a better word for it. editorial note: There are lines even in Colorado Springs politics which should not be crossed. Such as paid representatives using their positions of power to influence elections. Sally Clark is an Earth-raping Fascist a Land Developer, part of the "in crowd" who destroyed the economy of the U.S., the entire planet and in particular Colorado Springs with their Ponzi-scheme federally subsidized Mortgage Ripoff. And who bought her position and vote not only as city council but as County Commissioner. Same as always Lisa Czeladtko is running for City Councilor of Colorado Springs Colorado. The status quo in Colorado Springs shows hatred toward victims of a poor local economy. Former Colorado Springs City Councilor and current El Paso County Commissioner Sallie Clark is the campaign manager for Lisa Czeladtko. Lisa Czeladtko has negatively criticized the New Life Church for having helped victims of a fallen economy in Acacia Park. Lisa Czeladtko has publicly demonized victims of a fallen economy. Sallie Clark is acting as her campaign manager while serving as El Paso County Commissioner. Sallie Clark must either resign as El Paso County Commissioner or resign as Lisa Czeladtko's Campaign Manager. Colorado Springs needs fair minded representatives on the City Council not those who express hatred toward toward people who were negatively affected by the downfall of the economy. Furthermore let this petition serve as a notice that the whole world is watching Colorado Springs There was a Richard Pryor movie long ago "Brewster's Millions: an American excess story" in which the question was put, of a mayoral candidate, "Why would anybody spend 30 Million dollars to get elected to a job that pays a hundred Thousand a year? Answer: because he can steal it back, with interest" While the campaign costs for City Council and County Commissioner here aren't that large, neither is the actual pay for those positions. Since every man jack and girl Jill on either board considers or at least calls him/her self a "conservative" and with business ethics which start and end with Profit At Whatever Moral Cost, that leads to a (yet another) wide-open all-you-can-steal-buffet publicly funded trough where the Rich can feed. Exact text of petition: Please Resign Greetings, We feel that your efforts to help Lisa Czeladtko win a seat onto the Colorado Springs City Council are with hatred toward the victims of a poor economy in the Colorado Springs Area. We the undersigned feel that it would be in the best interests of the people in the Colorado Springs and El Paso County Area if you resign as Lisa Czeladtko's Campaign Manager and/or El Paso County Commissioner [Your name] Of course my take on it remains unchanged The City of

Baby Doc Duvalier back in Haiti…

No, really, the ex-dictator is back. Maybe he's hoping to steal some more, only this time there's no Haitian money to take. Perhaps from the international aid to Haiti? Negotiate a deal for a U.S. air base perhaps? Of course in the middle of a rigged election where, just like in Afghanistan and Iraq, there are U.S. soldiers at the polls with machine guns to make sure nobody votes for an unapproved candidate. keep order. And what of his private goon-squad "police" Les Tontons Macoutes? (French for eater of fools, a boogieman figure) And the announcement that Wikileaks is about to receive Swiss Bank records, a favorite place for Corporate Dictators, such as the Duvaliers, Cheneys and Bushes to stash stolen assets. And then, courtesy of Austin Texas online underground newspaper The Rag, contributing author Jason Flaherty Lewis Lucke, a 27-year veteran of the U.S. Agency for International Development (US AID) was named U.S. special coordinator for relief and reconstruction after the earthquake. He worked this job for a few months, then immediately moved to the private sector, where he could sell his contacts and connections to the highest bidder. He quickly got a $30,000-a-month (plus bonuses) contract with the Haiti Recovery Group (HRG). HRG had been founded by Ashbritt, Inc., a Florida-based contractor who had received acres of bad press for their post-Katrina contracting. Ashbritt’s partner in HRG is Gilbert Bigio, a wealthy Haitian businessman with close ties to the Israeli military. Bigio made a fortune during the corrupt Duvalier regime, and was a supporter of the right wing coup against Haitian president Aristide. Gee, what an amazing coincidence, "Aid" profiteers in Haiti getting huge contracts, guarded by U.S. Military and.... With ties to the Duvaliers. One of whom just flew home, to pick up the pieces of his own profiteering business. After bankrupting the People of the nation he claims to love, first by stealing all the assets of the country, then leaving the PEOPLE of Haiti under harsh economic sanctions set to be in place until They paid HIS bills, Brought them down to such a level of poverty, while he and his piglets were living the high-life in France, that a relatively minor earthquake had and still has the potential to destroy them completely. What a true Patriot this fellow must be!

Pueblo Bank “refuses to take Bailout money” explained

What they don't tell you in the commercial, with the president of the bank loudly saying tough-talking anti-"socialist" trash... is that the money they're refusing to "take" is not money targeted to the bank itself, but the people whose mortgages are owned by the bank. The bottom line is that the money is specifically Targeted, "earmarked" to people the Banker considers not worthy of the title human, he would prefer the terms "deadbeat" or "Loan thief" to describe those at the bottom of the heap, those taken in by the slick-dick advertising promoted by, among others, officials of his bank. "Why didn't they read the anywhere between 8 and 21 page documents, mostly single spaced small-type sentences and paragraphs filled with phrases like "party of the second part agrees to indemnify party of the first part"? in the 25 minutes alloted to the sales pitch? OUR HIGHLY EXPERIENCED HIGH PRESSURE SALES AGENTS WHO HAVE DECADES OF TRAINING AND EXPERIENCE IN HANDLING COMPLEX FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS DON'T SIGN ANYTHING WITHOUT READING IT COMPLETELY FIRST AND CONSULTING LAWYERS AND ACCOUNTANTS ON ANY ISSUE THEY FIND QUESTIONABLE! So why do these Peasants who have been held in wage-slavery for their entire lives without any hope of ever learning about Financial Instruments not be prepared and bring THEIR accountants and legal representatives, like we do? Let them eat Cake!" Yes, How DARE those Peasants ever dream of a better life, even though the bulk of Capitalist Propaganda is geared to telling them if they just work harder, longer hours, save more of their dwindling-in-value but seldom increased Minimum Wage to buy lots of stock in corporate enterprises, like those born to wealth did, they too could increase their wealth the same way those born to wealth did, minus of course the Work and Scrimping and Watching Their Families starve, die from lack of health care and forced to live in substandard Slum housing? Slumlords like Douglas Bruce are especially vicious with that line of attack. Also not very zealous of his own stance of Tort Limitations when it comes to TENANTS who owe money to their Lords of the Land. The slumlords, like the "freedom loving" banker will sic their Tame Pet Police and Judiciary on the poorest of the poor to recover whatever the Richest of the Rich consider to be their own just and due payments.

BP Says “top-kill” worked, but drilling wells right next to it

Supposedly to ease the pressure. How about THIS supposition instead. BP trashed the ocean very thoroughly, the bottom-up killoff of marine life is in progress, the species that are being more than merely decimated provide the food for every other life form. There's an investigation supposedly happening in the area of the well collapse. An investigation BP has stalled for months by "fumbling" around "trying" to stop the oil. Knowing full well that in doing so they were stomping all around the Crime Scene. Which is what it IS. Even cutting out the obvious crime of destroying what looks like the damn how to put this? OK so I'll put it where a Far Right Profit-is-God Money Worshiper like Rush Limbaugh can understand. Economic crime in the theft of Trillions. Put a dollar value on what's going to happen to just the Seafood Industry. The fisheries are trashed and going to get worse. Rush was on the air just before the non-enforcement of existing regulations and cutting even those down to where they wouldn't make a difference... WHINING that regulations to protect some of the species that form the web of life in the sea would limit "Sport Fishing". And screaming like the bitch that he is about how "all those poor Fishing Boat outiftters and Fishing Tour providers were going to be losing money". Where's the concern for them NOW, on the far right? And that's just one small facet of fisheries management. The corals, not pretty rocks on the bottom but the living coral, the organisms that build the reefs. Endangered by a shrimping practice that was destroying the reefs, killing the living coral, and in a chain reaction, was killing off the shrimp. Not So? Read on... One of the processes was to promote the growth of organisms that the coral normally feed on. Some of which are to shrimp what anthrax is to humans. And of course the whole food web. Maybe food web is too complex for a Right Wing so-called "mind" to fathom.<<nautical joke. So we go with their more familiar linear Food Chain. Which goes straight up, never sideways and of course, never down. The part of the "bottom" supposedly magically regenerates itself, and placing one species on the "top" is kind of chauvinistic. Which affected every other aspect of the food linear "chain" including the Sport Fishermen that Rush boo-hooed about so much. Oh, that's right, it's Glenn Beck who does the fake crying. The process is just beginning, the vast majority of the oil is still in the water, combined with chemical dispersants... which are Toxic. Hidden away where most people won't see it. Trillions of dollars later they'll see it. And of course, in the Right wing so-called "mind" nothing that happens in the sea could ever possibly have any effect on the Food Chain web of life on land. According to their screed, events on LAND don't affect life on land. Just ask the bees, bats and frogs before they all
