Brief 10 September 2012

What the Hell Happen to the Democratic Party?

Democrat Obama gave us:
-NDAA.
-He ended Due Process for all American Citizens.
-He extended the Patriot Act when he had an opportunity to end it.
-He added four more wars on top of Afghanistan not to mention all the troops and contractors STILL in Iraq (and Obama didn’t end Iraq, Bush set the withdrawal date).
-The drones oh, the drones, he vastly expanded that war machine and has slaughtered hundreds of innocent women and children in Yemen, Pakistan, Somalia. He’s even invaded sovereign country’s air space with these things, that’s an act of war!
-Now he’s lining troops up on the Syrian border.
-There’s been no investigation for the Bush/Cheney war crimes, he called it moving forward. Forward? Towards what?! He is now guilty of at least 27 of the 35 Acts of Impeachment purposed by Representative Dennis Kucinich.
-And killing OBL… the Saudi Royals gave more money to terrorists organizations and al-qaeda and he didn’t even initiate any investigation.
-Gitmo is still open and he just sunk $40M for an upgrade, not to mention the 15 year old who has been sitting and rotting in Gitmo for 10 years.
-The torture of American Citizen Bradley Manning.
-He’s put more whistle-blowers in jail than all the president in US history.
-He extended the Bush tax cuts.
-He approved the Colombian free trade agreement which destroys US wages.
-He hired Jeffery Immelt of GE as his job czar who outsourced, under his direction as CEO, more American Jobs than any other company.
-He put Social Security and Medicare on the chopping block.
-He continues to allow endless corporate welfare and tax evasion, along with letting crooked banks off the hook for violating mortgage laws through foreclosures with barely a slap on the wrist.
-He’s allowed the trading of Wall Street Banker’s toxic waste, including GM Financial, for pensions and savings.
-BP is still allowed to drill!

the list goes on and on…

and still you support what you perceive as the lesser evil?
how do you even agree with any of the above?
when do you stop supporting that?
when is enough enough?!
how can any progressive, liberal or any thinking empathetic person support Obama?

you’re voting for more of the same.

you are being forced into this situation and both parties know it.

I can’t, and I wont.

THE END GAME STARTS NOW!
YOUR VOTE COUNTS
NO MANDATE!

WASHINGTON – The Federal Reserve’s record-low interest rates have shrunk income for savers but cut costs for borrowers. Chairman Ben Bernanke is among the beneficiaries.

Bernanke’s latest financial disclosure form, released Thursday, shows he refinanced his Washington home in 2011. He took out a 30-year mortgage with a fixed 4.25 percent rate, replacing one taken out in 2009 that carried a 5.375 percent rate.

ECONOPOLIS—As part of an effort to consolidate ties with the sovereign fiscal nation, U.S. Federal Reserve chairman Ben Bernanke visited the cloud city-state of Econopolis on Friday to participate in ongoing diplomatic talks.

Bernanke, who traveled in a luxury cable car to the opulent capital floating 20,000 feet above the earth’s surface, was greeted upon arrival by President Cash Moneyton III, as well as a delegation of Econopolis representatives from the Ministry of Supply, the Bureau of Demand, the Agency of Goods, the Department of Services, and the Office of Consumption.

“Econopolis is the world leader in the exchange of currency and a shining beacon of commerce,” said Bernanke, admiring the hundreds of glass skyscrapers and the 125-story golden dollar-sign-shaped tower that dominate the skyline of the Ka-Ching financial district. “This great monetary nation is a key strategic partner for the United States and crucial to its fiscal well-being.”

“America treasures this relationship and greatly benefits from its alliance with the world’s No. 1 supplier of commodity, value, and profit,” Bernanke added. read more

War Is A Racket Redux

“War is just a racket. A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of people. Only a small inside group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few at the expense of the masses.

I believe in adequate defense at the coastline and nothing else. If a nation comes over here to fight, then we’ll fight. The trouble with America is that when the dollar only earns 6 percent over here, then it gets restless and goes overseas to get 100 percent. Then the flag follows the dollar and the soldiers follow the flag.

I wouldn’t go to war again as I have done to protect some lousy investment of the bankers. There are only two things we should fight for. One is the defense of our homes and the other is the Bill of Rights. War for any other reason is simply a racket.

There isn’t a trick in the racketeering bag that the military gang is blind to. It has its “finger men” to point out enemies, its “muscle men” to destroy enemies, its “brain men” to plan war preparations, and a “Big Boss” Super-Nationalistic-Capitalism.

It may seem odd for me, a military man to adopt such a comparison. Truthfulness compels me to. I spent thirty-three years and four months in active military service as a member of this country’s most agile military force, the Marine Corps. I served in all commissioned ranks from Second Lieutenant to Major-General. And during that period, I spent most of my time being a high class muscle-man for Big Business, for Wall Street and for the Bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism.

I suspected I was just part of a racket at the time. Now I am sure of it. Like all the members of the military profession, I never had a thought of my own until I left the service. My mental faculties remained in suspended animation while I obeyed the orders of higher-ups. This is typical with everyone in the military service.

I helped make Mexico, especially Tampico, safe for American oil interests in 1914. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in. I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefits of Wall Street. The record of racketeering is long. I helped purify Nicaragua for the international banking house of Brown Brothers in 1909-1912. I brought light to the Dominican Republic for American sugar interests in 1916. In China I helped to see to it that Standard Oil went its way unmolested.

During those years, I had, as the boys in the back room would say, a swell racket. Looking back on it, I feel that I could have given Al Capone a few hints. The best he could do was to operate his racket in three districts. I operated on three continents.”

Empowerment is right around the corner – all you got to do is want it.

“The American People can have anything they want, trouble is, they don’t want much of anything” -Eugene Debs

One Option – take a good chunk of the protesters around the country and walk into a state – filibusterer!

Change its government, enact the rule of law, fund small business, create affordable housing, universal health care, barter, fund education and good citizenship, finally stop the banking theft – close the banks, develop a stable currency, create an open source government; transparent.

Become the role model for the nation – you have to build it, and if you build it they will come.

Note: The revolution does not come to you, you must go to the revolution.
“The most heroic word in all languages is revolution.”

Suggestions: Liberals should head to Vermont – Libertarians to New Hampshire

“The time has come,” the Walrus said,
“To talk of many things:
Of shoes–and ships–and sealing-wax–
Of cabbages–and kings–
And why the sea is boiling hot–
And whether pigs have wings.”

Droppin’ Knowledge Like a Clumsy Librarian

.

The Gulf of Tonkin. Weapons of Mass Destruction. Jon and Kate Plus Eight. Citizens of the United States are used to being lied to, right? And who cares, really? As long as Americans can still afford to go to the Mall, they will never take to the streets.

In this collection of rants, raves and essays, Davis Fleetwood’s caustic humor is in full force as he launches rock after rock at the Goliath of the two party duopoly that has a stranglehold on American Politics even as he yanks back the curtain to expose the Corporate Puppet masters that bankroll the whole pageant. That he does this while he makes you laugh is what earned him the moniker of “political action entertainer.”
