Real Solutions for the War(s)

The Cost of War

http://costofwar.com/

Here is the Matthew Hoh article referenced in the above piece.

http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=114287485

America and Americans are fed-up with bloodshed and pissing away cash in the sand of the Middle East with the manufacturing profits of these wars ending up in Corrupt Communist Corporations and we know that there is a better way. The Europeans are in the same place as we and they see and understand war on an intimate level as no American is able unless you had family in the World Trade Towers or lived and worked in NYC during this act of terrorism.

WITHDRAW ALL OUR TROOPS NOW.  Immediate withdraw of all UN, NATO and American troops within 30 days sends a clear message that the war is changing. It requires very few American citizens, intelligence people on the ground, to know beyond a shadow of doubt where “problem areas” are within Afghanistan or Iraq.

There is no reason to or for spilling the blood of our best and brightest in the sands. Dumb and Dumber, Bush and Cheney, involved us in these wars and deserve to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law for their lies, corruption and fraud in involving the United States in these Wars.  They deserve to be tried as war criminals for the torture of prisoners.  The murder of American Citizens is directly related to their actions and those charges should be included as well.  The terrorist attack on The United States of America is a direct result of failed US diplomatic policy in support of despots, corrupt leaders and begins from the founding of the State of Israel but Dumb and Dumber desired to feed the wealthy of the US and perpetrated this fraud against the Citizens of the United States of America.  If you are going to tell a lie, make it a big one.  That certainly applies here.

President Barack H Obama is in a very difficult position in making effective choice in these wars created by Dumb and Dumber plus dealing with the economic disaster of Dumb and Dumber opening the US Treasury to the Corporate Communists who put them in office and kept them in office. The only fiscally responsible action is to withdraw now with the support of the US Citizens in this action and the caveat of a new policy of scorched-earth locked firmly in place.  Swift and certain retribution is a Global policy that will work now with UN involvement.

It is only because they (Bush and Cheney) are viewed as members of “the ruling class” combined with the knowledge that accountability will be forever a portion of the American Landscape in politics were this to happen, that prevents their trials and convictions. The purchased politicians on Capital Hill* know this with certainty and that’s the reason the trial of these war criminals has not occurred.  It is in the best interest of the bank accounts of the politicians and that’s the bottom line that Americans have been brought to see by what Washington, DC has done as written in history now.

We’ve spent our children’s futures in development and construction of “smart” armaments and the platforms to make use of them so let’s just use them. We have the intelligence ability to know, within a reasonable doubt, where the problem areas are within these regions.  It is very easy to move this information through the UN Security Council and obtain endorsement prior to action.  We are able to sit in our ships off-shore and target, with smart bombs, the villages and cities that are responsible for producing the terrorists and where these terrorists are provided shelter.  And let’s not forget who is funding them either.  Let’s just bomb them off the face of the earth.

As an International effort at control of terrorist activities this policy is able to enjoy universal application. It makes no difference what sovereign nation these “terrorist training camps” and community support centers are contained within.  The populations of innocent civilians who provide shelter to the individuals responsible for “acts of terrorism” are guilty by association.  Bomb them out of existence.  If it’s the War on Drugs in Afghanistan then napalm the poppy fields and be done with it.  Sure, swift and irrefutable evidence that the Western world is no longer tolerating the terrorist with actions like these will put an end to the issue.  Reduced to rubble is a position that Afghani, Iraqis, Iranians, Israelis and anyone else is able to comprehend upon viewing the ashes.  Will they, the natives, view their Al-Qaeda, Taliban or Hamaas as heroes when the ruins of life and living are all they see?

The clearly stated idea that American and UN Troops on the ground are able to conduct one-on-one diplomacy to win wars is utter nonsense and pure drivel. What diplomacy when the man has a gun in your face at your door?  Al Qaeda, the US created and armed Taliban, Hamaas or any other terrorist group employs suicide bomber diplomacy and that defines clearly the stage upon which we must act to stop this insanity now.  There is nothing humane in the actions of suicide bombers, bombers in general and the response and retribution must be swift and sure.

In Afghanistan we are able to clearly identify the problem areas, the towns and valleys where the Taliban and Al Qaeda are maintaining strongholds. Remove our troops and just bomb these locations into rubble, bomb them back to the stone age and leave them to recover to their 16th century life style as they may desire but get the job done now very quickly, efficiently and without great risk of American or UN lives.  It requires very few troops and a minimal amount of funding to wage this war on the terms defined by Al-Qaeda, the Taliban or Hamaas.  Economic sanctions have no effect in these areas of the globe.

In Iraq we know the towns and villages where the opposition is finding aid and comfort so we just bomb them into rubble and have the job done. Why should our sons and daughters be subject to being shot at by theology?  From a safe distance we are able to solve “the problem” and save American lives.

In Iran we know where the uranium enrichment facilities are located and where the nuclear reactors are that Iran has constructed. We bomb them into oblivion and ignore the diplomacy that Iranians hold in contempt.  It is clear that the Iranian government is unable to maintain an honest 21st century position so a few well placed bombs will put them back into the 16th century where they enjoy living. With all due respect to the Iranian population the reality is that they have tolerated an illegitimate government (something America knows about after 8 years of Dumb and Dumber) and taking these kinds of actions is sure and swift resolution to the corruption they are unable to overcome.

Let’s take, for instance, the West Bank territories in Israel. We know that the West Bank Settlements of the Israeli’s manufacture are a stumbling block to peace with the Palestinians.  We and the International community simply announce that on November 15, 2009 at high noon Jerusalem time that we are bombing these settlements out of existence and then do it.  This announcement is the compassionate notice to the settlers to vacate and the assets that are in question are destroyed, the occupation by Israeli settlers is stopped.  The problem is settled and the Israelis then are back at the negotiating table to get the issues solved once and for all time.  We stop all foreign aid to the Israelis and insist that they behave as human rather than the terrorist they demonstrate. Equality for all is an American trademark.

You think this to be a “harsh, without compassion or unrealistic” method of resolution?

I ask you what is compassionate about sending our sons and daughters into Wars based on lies, fraud and the desire of the rich to get richer?

I ask you what is compassionate about land mines, bombing in market places, mosques and busses?

I ask you what is compassionate about being an occupying force in any foreign nation?

What is compassionate in Dumb and Dumber’s Crusades?

It is a much more compassionate action to reduce “the enemy” and their supporting populations to a crater on the face of the Earth than it is to spill the blood of our sons and daughters in this protracted lie of War from some “moral” high ground.

THERE IS NO MORAL HIGH GROUND FOR WAR!

Be it the War on Drugs in the USA, the longest running war in United States history.

Be it the War in Afghanistan or Iraq based on lies, fraud, the corruption and greed of Bush and Cheney and their economic war machine.

Be it the War on the Middle Class in America by Corporate Communists and Government Corruption as seen in Bernanke, Paulson, Geithner and the largest transfer of wealth in history.

The dangers in these kinds of actions, in adopting this kind of policy is, of course, the “collateral damage” of innocent civilians, the infrastructure of the nations attacked and the global addiction to oil.  The economic reality is that Halliburton, Blackwater and hundreds of Government Contractors traced back to a very few Corporate Communists in the USA will no longer be enriched by war.  That is the end result.

The difference that this Scorched-Earth policy represents is that our military is home in the USA and we are able to turn the obscene government spending on War into a positive investment into America for a change.

The difference is that we may begin to care for Americans now and have the ability to buy back the USA from China where Dumb and Dumber and the Corporate Communists have sold us.

The difference that this Scorched-Earth policy represents is fighting terrorism with terrorism on a level that any nation involved in these kinds of activity will come to understand beyond a shadow of a doubt.

The difference is that America will have the ability to face the real Economic War at home and restore freedom, liberty and individual prosperity in this nation first.

Here is a clip from history where the Liar in Chief, Dumb as a Box of Rocks George W Bush made his declaration of “Winning the War in Iraq” on May 1, 2003 and we are still there.

Saturday

Saturday

From the Fundamentalist ignorance we get this soundbyte.

It is apparent that Mr Pat Robertson is very illiterate and unaware that the laws to protect his flavor of the Cult of Jesus hate exist and are included in this legislation. Perhaps Patty-poo should actually read instead of his hate-based faith delivering this kind of crap.

What is to fear?

What is to fear of civil rights in marriage equality or punishment of and for hate crimes?

Extending civil rights does not diminish the society but rather enriches it.  Lyndon Baynes Johnson pushing the Civil Rights of persons other than Caucasians did no harm to American Culture but rather led to the election of a person of ethnicity other than Caucasian into the White House.  America is a nation greatly reformed as a result but now confronts racial bigotry within the political processes and from the extremist right-wing organizations with increasing vitriol.  This, at times, seems much like one step forward and two steps back.

Generally, I am fairly well-centered and not given to conspiracy theories but one has to wonder about Dumb as a Box of Rocks Bush and his cronies as they exited office leaving the disaster accumulated over 8 years for the Obama Presidency and Democratic Congress to clean up.  The Corporate Communists spoke clearly in taking their tax cuts from Bush early on and then really capitalizing on them in the exit of George W Bush in a racist act intended to delegitimize and destroy the Obama Presidency.  The acts speak eloquently with Bernanke, Paulson and Geithner at the helm.

The terrorist tactics from Wall Street and Banking Greed are where Americans would do well to focus their building energies and unleash war.  If these creatures desire to live in a third world country then I encourage them to flee to Ecuador, Guatemala, Nicaragua or points south.

The next domestic threat today is not from the Islamic Fundamentalist but from the “Christian” (the Cult of Jesus) Fundamentalist and the Mormon Church who funded the repeal of Gay Marriage in California and is funding anti-Gay rights legislation in Maine and Washington State. These bigots, of course, are manipulating the courts to attempt to provide them protection for the sure and swift retribution of honest and equality minded humans.

A Follow-up from http://exiledonline.com/ on the illegal actions of the military and the looting of Alabama by billionaires. It’s still going on folks.  There is no end in sight and it’s a war against the population with American Military personnel in the streets.  It is well worth your time to listen to the radio broadcast.  We are in Third World Status now with the Bush/Cheney, Bernanke, Paulson, Geithner legacy clearly demonstrated within the reality of this piece.

In an interesting piece from Bilerico:  http://www.bilerico.com/2009/10/wwjb_where_would_jesus_bank_-or-_jesus_doesnt_bank.php

From NPR on Afghanistan http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=114287485 concerning the future direction of American and UN involvement in this unwinnable war in a place with no central government.

Freaky Friday, What is to Fear?

Posted in 1 by activecitizen54 on October 30, 2009

Freaky Friday, What is to Fear?

Tea Party freak in 10/26/09 offering:

September 14, 2009 offering for understanding the “movement.”

Driving the level of “discussion” to these points of pure hate, vitriol and venom is media fodder and sensationalism.  “Racist in chief, Indonesian muslim” and “You lie” from foul-mouthed despicable creatures that present upon the media stage is the problem we all face.  Americans are not the extremists without a cause that the Tea Bag “movement” presents.  This is not the America that I know.

What’s to Fear?

Let’s get the record straight here.

http://www.politicususa.com/en/Bush-Obama-100-Days This is a reasonably fair and balanced report but doesn’t include the 10 points below.

President Barack H Obama is the duly elected President of the United States of America and holds an office worthy of respect and admiration based on the majority of voters in the last election.

This is very unlike the Bush/Cheney elections fraught with fraud from Bubba Jeb’s Florida and that may say something clear to the US citizens.

President Barack Obama has done more to re-establish The United States of America to a free and open society than Dumb as a box of rocks Bush with his war monger butt buddy Dick Cheney are able to think of as self-congratulatory Mutt & Jeff thieves and liars.

Torture is no longer a part of the American vision of life as implemented and practiced by George W Bush and Dick Cheney.

The persecutions of pot smokers may be coming to an end with the instructions to return the decisions to the States from the Federal Government.  Small victories but movement.

Women are now legally entitled to equal pay.

The real cost of the Wars exposed and the exposure of the Military Contractors is the first of the achievements of this man in office. President Obama began his office by keeping this campaign promise first.

Dealing with disastrous economic policy that nearly brought the world economy to a depression prominently figures in President Obama’s first days. Bush/Cheney initiated the largest transfer of wealth in history to the top 1% in an absolutely corrupt act of collusion against the United States and her Citizens.

Open warfare is declared on investors, the US Treasury and every US citizen through the vile and treasonous actions from Ben Bernanke, Henry Paulson and Tim Geithner in the TARP fiasco all at George W Bush and Dick Cheney’s oversight.

“Congress approved that in the Federal Reserve Act.”  Mr Bernanke states.  That was passed in 1913 and not used until “the crisis.”


Facing the reality of the Wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. Let’s all remember who put us into War in Iraq and understand that was based on lies and fraud from the Bush/Cheney administration.  Like Father, like son.  That fruit didn’t fall far from the tree.

President Obama presents a careful and measured response to what amounts to unwinnable wars designed to collapse our economy.

I applaud the measured and well-considered actions from President Obama in that they represent an executive decision making process that was apparently vacant during the Bush/Cheney years.  Vacation in Texas anyone?

We are no safer in the United States because of what Dumb as a Box of Rocks Bush did in Wars in the Middle East.  His “faith-based” leadership accomplished what he set out to do in bankrupting this nation as he bankrupted 3 corporations to his credit.  Bush and Cheney have wasted the lives of American Citizens, our sons and daughters, in illegal actions and incompetent intelligence.  Using the word “intelligent” in conjunction with Bush/Cheney seems like the ultimate oxymoron to me.

President Barack H Obama withstood, with dignity, the abhorrent act of Joe Wilson, the South Carolina Bigot, who demonstrated just how low the Republicans, Conservatives in general and the media have stooped in contemptible grandstanding.

What kind of act can shouting, “You lie” at the President of the United States of America in a joint session of Congress hope to accomplish?  It is a clear demonstration of contempt from Rep. Joe Wilson, Republican, who deserves censure and expulsion for the act. This is not American civil discourse but a clearly heard call of a bigot with no sense of common decency or concept of civil conduct as Republican values mandate.  Conservatives and Republicans in this instance demonstrate that they hold the United States President in contempt and are racist.

President Barack H Obama did his best to obtain the Olympics for the USA. The “Conservatives” and Republicans were all cheering because America lost this bid to hold the Olympics in Chicago.  Now there’s an agenda to watch.

President Barack H Obama’s diplomacy at the UN, in inviting open discussion with Iran and the Muslim world and re-establishing an international respect of America cannot be denied. This is in stark contrast to Dumb as a Box of Rocks Bush.  George W Bush and Dick Cheney with Ben Bernanke, Henry Paulson and Tim Geithner sold America to the Chinese, raped the Social Security Trust fund to pay interest on Chinese loans and destroyed the largest peace time expansion of the economy in history to replace it with the largest transfer of wealth in history to the top 1% by being blackmailed by “too big to fail.”

President Barack H Obama has received the Nobel Peace Prize. I know this burns the Republican ass big time and Conservatives brush it off but this one act reinforces the reality that “anybody but Bush” is the Global sentiment expressed.  Republicans bullied and raped globally and all the purchased politicians behind these actions will face a day of reckoning in 2010.

Health Care Reform and Universal Health Care are on the plate of Congress after 60 years of Republican resistance and Capitol Hill greed in accepting campaign contributions from the Corporate Communists and the lobbyists in their employ.

Banking and Wall Street Reform are on the table in Congress now too.

There are 10 (ten) real accomplishments in 12 months on the President Barack H Obama positive column.

Listen to the detractors and pundts start retracting their screams and apologizing for their ignorance. That will not happen.

From the Republicans, the “You lie” party personified, the obstructionists of the day, we see divisiveness and cheering for America’s loss of the Olympics.  We see and hear the fear-mongering of “death panels” and “Government run” health care.  With Republicans representing this government then anything government run is to fear.  The heckling Joe Wilson bigot is your poster child.

From the Democrats we see Alan Grayson and Wienberg as champions of Health Care Reform and Universal Health Care but no leadership from Barack H Obama.

Mr. President we need you to put some muscle behind this public option and represent the people of the United States of America in making the demand for a robust, very cost effective point of competition within this too-long protected industry of greed and profiting from sickness.

Mr. President we need you to represent all the American people in real Banking and Wall Street reform and regulation to insure everyone profits.

Mr. President we respect your attendance to the Human Rights Coalition Dinner but why haven’t you signed a “do not fund” order for the prosecutions that continue within the Military against LGBT humans?

Mr President, where is the bail-out for the middle class that is unemployed, uninsured, disenfranchised and in Depression regardless of yours or Wall Street’s recovery?

What is to fear?

America is going Socialist! The reality is that America embarked on that great socialist ship 40 years ago with Medicare and that successful program didn’t cause the World to Shatter is the right-wing Republican Wingnuts still scream although they are enjoying their old age with better health care than 4 million other Americans. The Social Security System is also a great Socialist experiment that was successful until George W Bush raided it to pay the interest on loans to China.

Obamacare will bankrupt the nation. See above and face the reality that the Health Insurance Industry is doing it now by bankrupting thousands of small businesses and citizens with exorbitant premiums and refusal to pay claims.

Obama is taking over the automotive industry! GM is being bailed in an effort to maintain employment and support the industry although I agree that the Banking institutions have failed miserably at helping small business weather the storm of the economic crisis they’ve created.  Kinda makes you wonder, don’t it?

This idea that Socialism is inherently “bad” or “on the slippery slope to communism” doesn’t fly in light of the success of Medicare, the VA hospital system or Social Security.  Americans are intelligent enough to be responsible for themselves and understand that from the Post Office to paving roads this “socialist” structure exists side by side with a free market capitalist society.  We are in trouble now because of the Corporate Communists playing games in high places and the American Citizens have been too blind to see, to stupid to act and too trusting of Government that’s grown faster than the private sector ever could with the manipulation of money markets from the FED.

Where was the Republican Party and Conservative Right-Wing when George W Bush was destroying the Constitution in the Patriot Act?

Where was the Republican Party and Conservative Right-Wing when Bush raped the Social Security Trust Fund?

Where was the Republican Party and the Conservative Right-Wing when Bush lied about Weapons of Mass Destruction?

Where was the Republican Party and the Conservative Right Wing when the coffers were thrown open in “too big to fail?”  They threw the floodgates open through de-regulation, invited the acts with regressive tax cuts to the rich and insured they were being enriched by these actions.

Where is the investigation and the prosecution of these corrupt individuals?

This is the “investigation” as of May 12. 2009. Do you have your $30,000.00 from the United States that the FED has paid out?  This bureaucratic double-speak is the at the heart of the fraud perpetrated against the Taxpayers of the United States of America.

April Fool 4/1/09

This from March of 2009:

This from February 11, 2009 and still no hearings, no criminal charges and no answers.




Opening Shots in the Economic War

Posted in 1 by activecitizen54 on October 29, 2009

Opening shots in the Economic War:

The Battle in Wells Fargo who purchased Wachovia with bail-out funds.

Larry Ginter asks the questions

The ABA in Chicago isn’t really the “bad guy” here but as Bankers they must understand the role they play in the War on the Middle Class that is upon us.  Collateral damage on these suits is expected.  The Bankers aka “suits” in the ABA are mostly the good guys who are small local bankers involved in their community’s health and economic prosperity with a vested interest in that hometown.

The mega-banks are not involved on this level because they play the FED and the US Treasury with Wall Street Ponzi-schemes.  They purchase the politicians that give away our dollars and they ran the scam that Bush/Cheney jumped on like a chicken on a june bug.  Break up the “Big Boys” and restore sanity to Banking and Investment Banking with regulation and taxation.  After conviction for the fraud these creatures perpetrated against the United States and the World Economy, attach the homes and properties of all the bonus recipients and demand repayment, imprisonment and ban them from the free market based on their behaviors.

Americans must come to a basic understanding of how the FED, a private bank, is manipulating and raping the middle class. Audit the FED and do away with this corrupt group of Jekyl Island Monsters.  America deserves a real American Bank of American People that is able to function independently from the Corporate Communists who have brought us to the brink of oblivion and depression with their greed and corruption.  Bernanke, Paulson, Geithner and the Bush/Cheney partnerships in crime against the American public deserve to be tried and imprisoned for their actions.

Where is the investigation of these criminal acts?

Mr. President the torture of the American Taxpayers continues just as torture was the rule of the day in Guantanamo Bay.  Bring the thieves and torturers to trial and restore America now.

Congress hasn’t once called for investigation and Bernanke, Paulson, Geithner are all in collusion with Wall Street and the Mega-Banks in this fraud against the United States of America.

A related battle lead by Florida Representative Alan Grayson demonstrates the vile and audacious nature of politicians who are corrupt.

http://www.bradblog.com/?p=7481

What’s good for the goose isn’t good for the gander in this case.  The “Military Contractors” in this article are the George W Bush and Dick Cheney (Yes, Cheney’s Halliburton is up to its ears in this mess and the mainstream press has ignored it.) standing army of mercenaries in Afghanistan and Iraq primarily.  This employment of  Military Contractors is unconstitutional and illegal.  These contractors are murderers and thugs who are on the US Government dole at great expense that was hidden by Bush/Cheney.

Although President Barack Obama exposed this Bush/Cheney hidden cost of war I am very disappointed that President Barack Obama hasn’t broken these contracts on the basis of the criminal actions that are a matter of record.  Another black-eye for American integrity.

More on the War on Drugs:

The real human costs:

Stop the insanity

Prohibition is a failed policy. The Drug War costs $20 Billion dollars to deny access to drugs unless it’s through the PHARMA Lobby endorsed gateway.

California Pot News:

A free market option in the legalization of marijuana is coming to California and it’s long past time that we, the people, strike back at this government’s intrusion in what you and I may or may not chose to do with our bodies.  This is but one skirmish in the War on the American Public.

To the Fox “News” Network, just because you say a thing often enough and loud enough doesn’t make it true.

Fox Entertainment Sedition: Filmed; as Fox Producer’s incited the Tea Party Demonstration. The Huffington Post has a complete piece on this from a week ago. There are at least 10 instances of failure to fact-check and none of them as “innocent” as the “Death Panels,” The Cult of Jesus Crazies opinions with no balance and the Box Boy / Balloon Boy hoax.  There is no validity in Fox unless you are a mindless sheeple looking for justification of your hate.

Today’s Offering from the Fox endorsed Tea Baggers:

Many thanks to http://www.bradblog.com/ for bringing this to the public domain. Americans are able to understand the truth and want an honest, fair and balanced government that adheres to the constitution.  The suspect in funding for this “grassroots” movement is none other than oil and chemical men David and Charles Koch out of Wichita, Kansas and is far from “grassroots” in organization.  Finding common themes for Racial Bigots, the ignorance stricken, homophobic and disenfranchised of every ilk isn’t difficult for these businessmen, or for the likes of  the illustrious “Reverend” Fred Phelps hate-mongers Cult of Jesus crazies in Topeka.  Maybe it’s something in the Ogallala aquifer that causes this hate from the great State of Kansas.  Rest assured that the Koch brothers will bring this hate-mongering and divisiveness to your hometown soon.

I doubt the legitimate status of this “Tea Bag” Movement because of the founders.  I suspect that they hide their involvement in this as a result of their intent to disrupt rather than effectively create constructive reform.  One more circus side-show to distract and be purely divisive appears the sole intent.

From http://exiledonline.com/tea-bagger-closet-cases-then-now-jfk-faced-exact-same-accusations-as-obama/ comes some background on “Tea Baggers” in the USA…

The Wars in Afghanistan and Iraq that George W Bush and Dick Cheney created to line their pockets and bump the Industrial, Congressional, Military Complex as a “solution” to Dumb as a Box of Rocks Bush bad-mouthing the largest peacetime economic expansion in history and bringing us 911, continues to kill our kids and innocent humans in both countries. The man lied about Weapons of Mass Destruction and the Terrorists are winning because we are spending ourselves into the economic ruin that brought down the USSR.

In a frightening new development the Taliban (of the US creation) is now making market bombing attacks in Pakistan. Of course the USA has bombed in Pakistan with drones and a blind eye to the innocent so the tit-for-tat continues to escalate into the reality of WW3 that the Religious Right claims as Armageddon upon us now.

End the Wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and bring our troops home now.

Focus on America First!

Bring the Wall Street Greedy Corporate Communists to trial and restore faith in the economy, the justice system and the political process in the United States of America now.

Ex-President George W Bush, Dick Cheney, Ben Bernanke, Henery Paulson, Tim Geithner and the FED are criminals in the high crimes and treason they conducted against the American and Global population.  Bring these men to trial.

Audit the FED and do away with it. The FED is corrupt and manipulated the current crisis.

President Obama, please come to your senses and stop the Blackwater, Halliburton and all Military Contractors now.  Bring our troops home and stop the bleeding of America.

Major Funding for a new “Smart Electric Grid” is announced this week.  The Electric Utility is now getting into the Government dole. The Utilities know that they have repair, renewal, expansion and improvement required to this infrastructure that you and I pay through the nose for and Electric Utilities are now on the government dole too.  Where is the honest business of maintaining and improving your business from the profits of the business?  Has this basic economic component of long-term success been totally written out of reality by the greedy Corporate Communists?


Illegal US Army Occupation in Alabama

Posted in 1 by activecitizen54 on October 28, 2009

Illegal US Army Occupation in Alabama:

The Army from Ft Rutger illegally occupied several Alabama towns.  There was no mass media outcry and the population didn’t rise in revolt.  Just a reminder that “they” have the guns.

Old News from the Drug War:

Call it hysterical racism history and you are most accurate.

This is a shared experience from a friend on government actions in the most recent past.

THE ANT AND THE GRASSHOPPER

This one is a little different…
Two Different Versions! …………….
Two Different Morals!

OLD VERSION:
The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer long,  building his house and laying up supplies for the winter.

The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away.

Come winter, the ant is warm and well fed.

The  grasshopper has no food or shelter, so he dies out in the cold.

MORAL OF THE STORY:
Be responsible for yourself!


MODERN VERSION:

The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter.

The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away.

Come winter, the shivering grasshopper calls a press conference and demands to know why the ant should be allowed to be warm and well fed while others are cold and starving.

CBS, NBC , PBS, CNN,
and ABC show up to provide pictures of the shivering grasshopper next to a video of the ant in his comfortable home with a table filled with food America is stunned by the sharp contrast.

How can this be,
that in a country of such wealth, this poor grasshopper is allowed to suffer so?

Kermit the Frog appears on Oprah with the grasshopper and everybody cries when they sing, ‘It’s Not Easy Being Green.’

Acorn stages a demonstration in front of the ant’s house where the news stations film the group singing, ‘We shall overcome.’
Rev. Jeremiah Wright then has the group kneel down to pray to God for the grasshopper’s sake.

Nancy Pelosi & Harry Reid exclaim in an interview with Larry King that the ant has gotten rich off the back
of the grasshopper, and both call for an immediate tax hike on the ant to make him pay his fair share.

Finally, the EEOC drafts the Economic Equity & Anti-Grasshopper Act retroactive to the beginning of the summer.

The ant is fined for failing to hire a proportionate number of green bugs and, having nothing left to pay his retroactive taxes, his home is confiscated by the Government Green Czar.

The story ends as we see the grasshopper finishing up the last bits of the ants food while the government house he is in, which just happens to be the ant’s old house, crumbles around him because he doesn’t maintain it.

The ant has disappeared in the snow.

The grasshopper is found dead in a drug related incident and the house, now abandoned, is taken over by a gang of spiders who terrorize the once peaceful neighborhood.

MORAL OF THE STORY: Be careful how you vote in 2010.

Repeat:  Be careful how you vote in 2010.

America is in a world of hurt at the moment and leadership is OK with this.

More from the Cults of Jesus:

From the Mormons,

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jkYAbGEqCgc&feature=channel

Gays, Lesbians, Transgendered, Bisexual or the sexually suspect are objects of hate and villification by the Cult of Jesus crazies who profess Jesus brought his Jewish Tribe to the United States and John Smith was in direct contact with the Divine when he penned the Mormon Bible.  OK, you are free to worship as you see fit.  What does equal rights for LGBT threaten in your world view?  Honesty maybe….


Hate Is Not a Family Value

Posted in 1 by activecitizen54 on October 27, 2009

Hate is not a Family Value.

From the Westboro Baptist Church Cult of Jesus freaks.

This Cult of Jesus takes to an extreme their particular flavor of hate and enjoy spreading it wherever they can get the media coverage they feed upon.  Public displays of group hysteria and insanity are not attractive.

If you are desperate for something to hate try:

Hate the Wars in the USA on the population in a Drug War and an Economic War that exists now.

Hate the Wars in Afghanistan & Iraq that spill the blood of our best and brightest in the sands of the Middle East.

Hate the Oil Companies greed that has kept alternative energy sources from coming to the open market.

Hate the Bankers and Wall Street for raping your great grandchildren’s future for their multi-million dollar bonuses.

Hate the reality of Purchased Politicians on Capital (I know Capitol is different) Hill and what they’ve done to the freedom of every American.

Hate the Greed and Corruption of the Rich from Wall Street who’ve reduced this great nation to third world status to line their pockets at all our expense.

Hate the Religious Fundamentalist of the Mormon Church who conduct a war against all our civil liberties daily.

Hate the Religious Fundamentalists of any flavor because Theocracy is not Democracy and the United States of America is a place where freedom from religion is guaranteed just as freedom to worship as you decide is free.

Terrorism is a tactic that is employed by Congress, The office of the Presidency and the Religious Fundamentalists in failed efforts to induce fear for the purpose of control.  Hate control and question all authority.

To keep today’s theme going:

God doesn’t make junk.

Monday Madness

Oh joy, we’ve made it to the big time TV.

With Corporate Communists as Ventriloquists the Puppet Politicians are still doing as little as possible while trying to make it look like something.  It’s an appropriate opening for Monday with the way the Politicians on Capital Hill all have their Corporate Communists Puppet Masters greasing the way with hard cold cash.  Milk it to feed those election coffers.  The fruits of your labor (or lack thereof) will soon be upon you.

Here’s the McCain lie in “The Internet Freedom Act of 2009” proposed legislation as an act of war against the population opened by the Telecom Lobby. Freedom of speech is under siege.

And let’s not forget that we are still denying health Care to 40 million citizens in a “civilized” western industrial nation with 10%+ unemployment and the rich getting richer as we foot the bills for their bonuses.

Now On To War News.

The War on the Population and America’s Middle Class:

President Barack Obama has not signed the “Do Not Fund” executive order to stop the persecutions of Gays in the Military.

President Obama, Nobel Peace Prize Recipient, please do the right thing to insure basic Human Rights and Constitutional Guarantees for all Americans.  End the Wars, sign the “Do Not Fund” executive order that is within your grasp now and demonstrate some leadership.

Here is an interesting piece from Mark Fisher about how our FED and Treasury officials blew the bail out deal.

The Second Skirmish may bring the War into reality.

The War On Drugs:

The Great American 40 year tragedy drives global consequences.  Careful of the smoke and mirrors and bait and switch that this represents as the prohibition is demanded end.  Movement but we must acknowledge the cost.

From the New York Times comes an article defining the new “Rules of Engagement” in the War On Drugs.

http://www.nytimes.com/2009/10/26/us/26marijuana.html?ref=us

Here’s some history of how this War began and its roots are deep and ugly in America’s History of hypocrisy and control of the population.  This is Gary Webb’s investigative journalism in “Dark Alliance” on the web.

http://www.narconews.com/darkalliance/

The Blood and Guts War that’s killing our kids in the Middle East:

Helicopter Crashes in Afghanistan killing 14 Americans including Military Contractors.

Why is America paying for Military Contractors? George, Dumb as a Box of Rocks, Bush hired this illegal and immoral private army that his butt-buddy Dicky-poo owns and it is unconstitutional but feeds Halliburton directly and Dick Cheney’s coffers indirectly.  There’s a conflict of interest on the surface that extends to the rotten core of these Military Contractors but the issue remains an open wound.  Staunch the bleeding and get rid of these mercenaries now.

The Frightening reality that looms in Afghanistan even with the current 300% increase in troops deployed since President Obama took office. There is a valid case to be made in a troop draw-down in Afghanistan and making policy changes now.  President Obama has taken this carefully weighed and considered approach.  This is not “dithering” to quote the Cheney clown but rather the best method available to make effective decisions.  No more knee-jerk, throwing American Blood and money away.

Iraqi War News:

The bombings are beginning again in Iraq with over 150 recent victims. Where are the Iraqi security forces in this?  Why are we still in Iraq?  What is to be gained?  Baghdad is no friend now and may never be “friend” to the United States.

The Thought War news:

Samuel Clemmons, Mark Twain speaks eloquently to the issues of the Christian Crusade mounted by war-monger, Dumb as a Box of Rocks, Bush.

“But he loves you and he needs money.”  George Carlin

“Thou shall keep thy religion to thyself.”  George Carlin

Amen!

The First Amendment to the United States Constitution is cited and supported through the Supreme Court of the United States as the foundation of separation of Church and State.  “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof…” This salvation is the secret of the success of the United States of America and is clearly the greatest internal threat that confronts this great nation today.  The religious right, Cult of Jesus, presents threats to the sovereignty of the United States from every pulpit and promotes bigotry and hate as their universal concept of “love.”

Tax the Church. Any Church, any religion that moves into the secular world of politics and politicking as the Catholic Church, Baptist Church, Mormon Church or any of the Cults of Jesus, Islam, Hebrew, Buddhist, Shinto, Hindi or Rastafarian; tax them all.

Fanaticism is unacceptable social behavior on any level. The great threat of this kind of religious fervor is the direction of its application.  It’s not religion that kills it is people.  The difference is between belief and knowledge and if you think that Jesus or God is speaking to you then you are schizophrenic.  Religion presents a powerful language through which you can justify atrocities through mob mentality.  This is not “the democratic process” in having the Mormon Church mount repeal of Gay Marriage Laws while hiding behind corporate entities and living in fear of discovery for their signatures on the petitions to place the denial of civil rights on a ballot.

Why can’t we all just get along? We can’t “get along” because fanaticism leads to hate that leads to mental, social and verbal abuse that leads to violence and this is the pattern of human nature upon which religion preys.  Make no mistake that religion preys.  Religion preys upon the worst aspects of human nature and does nothing to uplift ones’ soul.  Religion preys upon the divisive reality of them against “we of the same belief” system.  Religion preys upon the ignorance, poverty and social ineptitude of the ignorant and demonstrates clearly an inability of rational thought with its very nature of “belief” vs “proof.”  Prey away.


How Do They Get Away With It?

Posted in 1 by activecitizen54 on October 24, 2009

How do they get away with it?

“Fraud by top elites is what we have here.” Is Mr. William K. Black’s well-informed opinion.  The Bush administration got rid of regulation.  Liars loans are not verified and these are the tool the Bankster used to create “ninja loans” bundled as “Derivatives” and never looked at to determine accurate rating, to inflate their bonuses and compensation packages.

Bankers and Rating Agencies, with the collusion of Wall Street manufacturing derivatives as a Ponzi scheme, perpetrated this crime, this fraud, against the investment of the American Public is the kindest description available. The guilty parties then have the Gaul to gift themselves bonuses with our money and believe we are powerless. Where are the criminal charges?

What of the Prop Corrective Actions law after the S&L debacle?

Where is the inquiry?  There will not be an outcry from Congress for an investigation of this anymore than a robust Single Payer Health Insurance program because the Government is in the pockets of Bankers and Insurance.  Congress won’t bite the hand that feeds them.

Mr Paulson & Mr Geithner are criminal in their cover-up and participation in the Banking fraud that is perpetrated against the American Taxpayer.  As President of the Federal Reserve in NY Mr Geithner was the regulator and it’s the de-regulation that created this ponzi scheme.  These actions are in violation of the law.

America is lying to its self and to the American Taxpayer over the scope and nature of this manipulated Banking crisis that is the direct result of greed, corruption, fraud in the entire Banking system.

Where is the open inquiry and the criminal charges against these CEOs who have perpetrated this fraud?

WAKE UP AMERICA!

Bring the criminal charges against the Bush / Cheney tyranny, the Wall Street and Banking fraud and restore faith in America now by telling the truth.

End the wars on Drugs, in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Restore the Gold Standard.

Universal Health Care now.

Establish a true National Bank and tear down the FED.

Restore America now.

Politicians, Bankers, Wall Street and every CEO in the United States and those who have moved their business abroad are facing a day of reckoning with an American revolt.

TGIF

Prepare your salt:

Notice the terrorist tactics employed here from the questionable intelligence of the “I’m married to Imus” creature to the Religious Leader’s hate-mongering commentary about “Illegal Immigrant’s Disease, with these Mexicans bringing in all sorts of diseases.”  The “Minister, Cult of Jesus Crazy” defines his existence as dependent upon fear, hate and safety in numbers inherent in this fraud.  The arrogance and hate of this Black Preacher who should rightfully be clad in a sheet from his comments here frame the mob mentality and the reality of one lies and they all swear to it.

This is YELLOW JOURNALISM in its lowest form and is exactly how the Religious Right is spreading its hate and lack of value for constitutional equality, rights to free speech and the very tenets of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.  We all have documentation of Fox encouraging “protestors” as an adjunct requirement of this flavor of hype, sensationalism and sadomasochistic self description.  The Black Preacher burns his cross by opening his mouth and will happily accept your donations to continue to do this on his website.

On Health Care

The AHIP Lobbyist tells the Republicans not to provide “Comfort to the Enemy.” The Lobbyist, Steve Champlin, decries “being vilified by the Democrats” as a course of framing the debate to “Motivate change through creating an enemy.”

The Republicans obviously are in dire need of medical attention for the Alzheimer’s disease that’s now struck.  “Death panels,” are the manufacture of the Republican Party as are the “rationed care, Government’s take-over” and numerous other salacious claims.  The reality is that Insurance Company’s greed and factually reported behavior in denial of claims, manipulation of markets and obscene profits on illness are the foundation for them being the enemy.

The Bail-Out misery continues:

Elizabeth Warren is clear about Arrogance and Cozy relationships because these greedy corporate thieves think they are “owed” the bail-out monies and are in collusion in perpetrating this fraud against America. If you throw enough taxpayers under the bus you can stabilize the upper part of the economy but Foreclosure and Unemployment demonstrate we still haven’t stabilized the real economy.  The “too big to fail” have gotten bigger.  Where is America’s share of the obscene profit created by our purchase of these businesses?

Here’s the mess explained

WAKE UP AMERICA!

Why are American Taxpayers bailing out these obscenely huge corporate entities?

Americans are loosing jobs, homes and small businesses at a rate that exceeds The Great Depression and yet we bail-out the Corporate Communists with inconceivably huge amounts of money directly from the US Treasury.

Why are Corporate Communists comfortable in their multi-million dollar mansions, receiving obscenely huge bonuses for bankrupting the country?

Here’s the propaganda from the Corporate Communist’s mouthpiece who continued to open the US Treasury as a puppet of the FED.

I have a headache from listening to this kind of Government-speak that is intended to deceive and conceal the rape of the American Taxpayer. The Wall Street and Banking collapse was manipulated and is the direct result of fraud perpetrated to insure the fulfillment of greed by the Banking and Wall Street money brokers at all our expense now.

Where is the credit available for small business at a competitive rate (these Banking Corporate Communists are getting our money at 0%) or the modification of home loans made toxic by predatory lending practices?

Why is it that the Taxpayer is loosing homes, businesses, jobs and economic stability?

Why are CEOs more important to prop up than the average Taxpayer?

Targeted capital is obviously into the top 1% instead of the powerhouse of the American Labor that has made these bastards obscenely wealthy at our expense.

Here’s a Solution:

Provide every American access to the Social Security Account held by the Federal Government in trust for our obtaining an age of 62 or 65.  Anyone who has reached 30 years of age or has a Social Security Account in excess of $10,000.00 should have access to these funds to control at his or her will. There is a universal stimulus program that is already funded by the tax dollars of each American.  Here is a program that will demand accountability of the Government by the people and for the people in that this is an opportunity for America to restore the idea of “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” in real-time now.  Real relief for Americans now.

Establish the American National Bank to compete with private lenders and drive accountability, honesty and fairness in lending with the intent of doing away with the FED.

End the Wars on Drugs, in Afghanistan & Iraq and bring our troops home. It’s time to stop shedding blood in the streets of the USA and around the globe on failed policy and knee-jerk responses from an ignorant, corrupt and fraudulent government up to and through the Bush Presidency.

Bring George W Bush, Dick Cheney, Henery Paulson, Tim Geithner and Congress up on War Crimes and High Crimes against the United States of America and include the CEOs of Wall Street (the 10% who committed fraud) Banking and the Corporate Communists to trial now. Americans are not stupid and we see the criminal actions that have occurred and demand actions to bring these people into the prison system where they rightfully belong.
