ReThink Afghanistan

ReThink Afghanistan

With the news of XE aka Blackwater bidding on training Afghani Police I was struck with absolute horror.  Haven’t we learned our lessons with the murders in Iraq from this Military Contractor?

A larger question, in light of Caribou Barbie calling for war in Iran; haven’t we learned that was just doesn’t work?

The parallels between Viet Nam and the current wars are disgusting and deplorable and this war is just not winnable.

With the Cults of Jesus Inc, Right-Wing Republicans and the Industrial / Military / Congressional Complex working against President Obama for the destruction of America and crying for a reduction of deficits; ending these wars makes great sense.  Of course this 800 pound gorilla in the room is considered sanctified because it’s good business for the FED, good for business and keeps 130,000 able bodied troops overseas and occupied where they can’t be turned against the Oligarchy or the population of the USA.

Why is no one listening?

Why aren’t we ending these travesties of War and bringing George W Bush, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld and the Bush Administration to trial for their war crimes, for murder and treason?

The information is available at rethinkafghanistan.com as reported here all along during the debates leading up to the announced surge.

Remember that 404 members of the Senate and Congress voted against the Constitution of the United States of America in the Patriot Act.  To think that these traitors are going to develop any sense of fiscal responsibility with the demonstrations of TARP gifts to Wall Street and Banking, the fiasco of Health Insurance Reform selling out to the Insurance Companies and Drug Manufacturers, the Stimulus that favored the Oligarchy and leaves Main Street to suffer defines the intent of these purchased politicians.  Congress has the ability to end these wars and stop the Imperial Actions of the United States of America by withholding funding.  Game over.  Do you think it’s going to happen?

The American people, a majority of the American people want Universal Health Care and these pseudo-royalty line their campaign pockets and their personal pockets at the expense of their constituency.  This isn’t along party lines either.  This is a clear demonstration that the system is broken and the American People are rising up to effect a wholesale housecleaning the likes of which these corrupt bastards have no clue and it’s never been seen before.  The People of the United States of America are fed up with the status quo and the far right is winning as a result.  Change is coming rapidly.

This is the current business standard as reported in Sick For Profit.

Bill Moyers reports fairly, accurately and of the history and current events. None of us wants the current system to continue as we are squeezed ever harder by the growing costs of health care for profit.  Now there is nothing wrong with profit for the Doctors, Technicians, Nurses, Hospitals and Clinics but the middle man, the for profit Insurance Companies and Drug Companies have become greedy and drive the costs 25% to 30% higher to line their pockets and pay Wall Street profits.

Americans are ready willing and able to pay their fair share and Universal Health Care, Medicare or Medicaid for all is an honest solution that presents real competition to these greedy Corporate Communists.  Four Hundred Billion Dollars is what Americans currently pour into the Corporate Communist’s pockets in excessive administrative “costs” while people die from being denied coverage.  Do away with the Health Insurance Industry and save $4 trillion now.

Here is real cost relief for the Small Business People by getting the Insurance Company Corporate Communists out of their pockets.  We’ll still pay for the costs of medical care but at a reduced rate within the structure of our current tax payment methods.  Single Payer Universal Health Care is a business bail out.

Medicare wasn’t disruptive to the health care delivery system.  It was disruptive to the Insurance Industry Corporate Communists.  Medicare is a Socialist System that works just like our Libraries, Fire Departments, Police Forces are all Socialist Systems.  What is to fear?

The Insurance Industry, if it is to be competitive and survive, will provide Universal Health Care at reasonable costs or it will pass into non-existence as the horse and buggy have passed into being collector’s items.  This knowledge is what drives their rancorous rants on television commercials, their absolute spending spree in Washington, DC and on the State levels and it has served to expose the very corrupt nature of politics today.

This is about the people.  There is no doubt and the people understand clearly that purchased politicians do not have their best interest in mind or heart.  November is coming and this is open war on the incumbents without real reform that includes Universal Health Care.  I will not pay to the Corporate Communists one red cent.  I will pay my fair share into a national health program through my job or out of my own pocket but I will not pay the Corporate Communists ever.

For less than half the cost of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq we could have Medicare for all and begin paying down the national debt now.  That’s the reality of the choices that are presented to us.  Why are we a global imperial force now with military bases in 191 countries or territories around the globe and not caring for our citizens?

    Can you believe this story from Denver?

    I just saw this story and had to share it with all of you.

    This poor woman, just can’t believe that this actually happens in this day and age, what a shame.

    I just thought it was important to share.

    (CNN) — Three police cars pulled into Christina FourHorn’s front yard one afternoon while working from home just before she was supposed to pick up her daughter at school. The officers had a warrant for her arrest.

    “What do you mean robbery?” FourHorn remembers asking the officers. Her only brushes with the law had been a few speeding tickets.

    She was locked up in a Colorado jail. They took her clothes and other belongings and handed her an oversize black-and-white striped uniform. She protested for five days, telling jailers the arrest was a mistake. Finally, her husband borrowed enough money to bail her out.

    “They wouldn’t tell me the details,” she said.

    Later, it became clear that FourHorn was right, that Denver police had arrested the wrong woman. Police were searching for Christin Fourhorn, who lived in Oklahoma.

    Their names were similar, and Christina FourHorn, a mother with no criminal record living in Sterling, Colorado, had been caught in the mix-up.
