THE ECONOMY, FERGUSON, MO AND OTHER THINGS WE ARE BEING LIED TO ABOUT

You'd think from the national news coverage that what is happening in Ferguson right now is a black versus white issue. It isn't. It's about poor people, regardless of color, pissed at being treated like second class citizens.
mrz081714dAPC

Now to be fair, part if it is the fault of the black community. How long do we have to tolerate black racism before someone finally stops it in it's tracks? In almost all white, Hispanic, Native American or Asian cultures, there is no long term trend toward self segregation and blatant anti-white sentiment that is becoming an all too troubling aspect of black culture. Listen to what passes for music in their society and one would find it overwhelming anti-gay, anti-women, anti-white hate speech. If this came from a white person singing about blacks, they would be rightfully shunned by the white community and everywhere else. That's not to say that such music does not exist, it does, but only on the ignorant, fringe aspects of society. The victim, Michael Brown, was a honor student headed for college and he still acted like a thug, and was also a failed rapper who sang about killing people, and all of this was almost certainly due to the environment he was brought up in. Some was caused by white people, and the police in particular, but black society cannot say that their racism is not becoming all too prevalent and now, ultimately, destroying them.

I associate with a lot of people from various aspects of civilization. And while none are outright racists, this kind of "kill Whitey" mentality is turning a lot people against blacks in general. By the way, cops are dicks regardless of color. If you want an all black police force, don't expect your interaction to change one iota. Black people have to stop with this idea that all white people hate them and realize this is just another way the 1% keeps us apart. We have a lot more in common with each other, than either of us do with the rich. I have spent time in the projects with some very nice black people who were far from racist and trying to better their lives. We need more people like that.
Kareem Abdul Jabbar just wrote a fascinating piece for Time.com saying that the next race war won't be about race. It will be about income inequality. And this can be seen all over the country right now. Market Basket employees stood up and told the new CEOs to take a flying leap if they planned on austerity measures to help a struggling company. Oh wait, Market Basket is making billions in profits each year and this whole thing is about rich people grabbing for even more in their endless greed. Ferguson, MO is much the same as they have had it with being hassled by the cops, struggle to make ends meet on the slave wages they get paid and are now lashing out. It didn't help that the local cops made things so much worse by showing up in tanks and riot gear and acted like Nazis. Now the anger has turned toward the cops, led by people either intent in looting or confronting a police force they see as an occupying force. Way to go cops. If the revolution start, it will have started here, and you are to blame. The governor, on enacting martial law, is not helping. It is amazing that just about everything government can do wrong here, they have.

We have a stereotype that all black people are poor and all poor people are criminals. This is prevalent even within the self-loathing black community, as several black commentator have mentioned lately in various columns. According to Clive McFarlane, a syndicated columnist and prominent black writer, the black community is guilty of hating themselves for being black which would make a lot of sense as to why they are the only groups that destroy their own property. Secretly, they would rather be white, and let's face it, who can blame them. White people don't get hassled by the cops as much, make more money and live in safer neighborhoods. I wouldn't want to be black living in Compton, Detroit or the like either. Their black pride masks a deep hatred for their own kind. That is truly sad but also means that the best way to fix this is to take actual pride in themselves and start changing for the better. It can be done but first they have to get rid of slack attitudes, violent rap music and a more politically oriented push toward the left. If you don't vote, especially in mass numbers, you do not count and black people have some of the lowest turn outs of any race. Unless this attitude changes, nothing else will.



Society itself is also to blame with falling wages, especially for the less educated, as seen in almost all government data. The push to toward part time work has been blamed on Obamacare but this fails to explain the chart below which shows a massive spike a full year before the topic even came up. This has been going on for some time as I experienced it first hand back in 1999-2001. But the evidence below shows that the ultimate culprit was the Great Recession and corporate greed.

It's also happening across the planet so unless Obamacare went global and one told me, that lie is dead and buried. Check out what is happening in Canada.

part-time canada

Corporations everywhere are moving to a part time basis to save billions on benefits they no longer have to pay, along with the lower wages that part time work offers. Canada is also experiencing a housing slow down, just like here and that is dragging down employment as well. The housing bubble is also global and the first place it tanks, be it US, Germany or China, the world economy will nose dive with it.

George Soros certainly thinks it will as he just upped his bet from $800 million to $2.2 billion on short puts against the economy for the next ninety days, the exact time frame I have been warning people could also spell disaster. September and October are notoriously volatile and this year looks particularly dangerous. The chances of a giant stock market correction is around 90%. That is not certain as 10% is still a capable spoiler, but it is not likely at the same time. As the market is beyond rigged at this point it is hard to pin point down an exact time frame, but because we have fixed nothing since the last crash, we are doomed to repeat it all over again, although this time will be far, far worse.

Japan is nose diving in economics, their GDP crashing -6.8% last quarter. They are also struggling with the after effects of Fukushima, the failure of Abeconomics and, like everywhere else, a move to part time workers.
part-time-employment-by-age-group
They have used Quantative easing for two decades with little effects other than a rising debt load, a society too expensive for most to live adequately in, and a rapidly dwindling population due to the inability of younger workers to start a family when they should.

Ferguson could happen anywhere at anytime now as revolution is starting rear it's ugly head. After that comes anarchy and then the rise of a new society which will most likely be one of totalitarian rule if we let it. We cannot let that happen and only by banding together and getting rid of racist attitudes will we prosper. If we go it alone, we all die. It's that simple people. We need to vote, we need to have our voices heard and we need to protest peacefully but forcefully. And if the cops come to break that up, it is our duty to fight back. Ferguson certainly is. There is a role model in some of what they are doing. Let's not let this opportunity go away in vein.

DOUCHEBAG OF THE WEEK: FERGUSON, MO.

The town of Ferguson is a microcosm of everything that is wrong with this country. An inept, trigger happy police force? Check. A black community partially responsible for their own troubles? Oh yeah. A government years behind the times and shocked that any of this is the new norm? Definitely. Let's see those runner ups in a truly sad, pathetic week.

1)Turkey- After the PM for the past ten years, Tayyip Erdogan, won another five year term, maybe we have to consider the fact that Muslim countries are incapable of free elections. This guy has turned Turkey from a secular, rising star to yet another religious ghetto, just like Gaza, just like Egypt did after the first revolution, and just like Libya is turning into. Isis is running wild which led to a joint Kurd/Iraqi/US attack on the Mosul dam which terrorists recently overtook. And while some in Gaza have quietly voiced their displeasure with Hamas, few dare to do so in public for fear of severe reprisals from the dictatorship that the Palestinians overwhelming voted for. This is what we have to fear and should be more worried about this, such as Communism or Nazis of the past. Muslim extremists are a true threat and we should be treating this as a much more serious problem than we are because of one reason: oil. Can we please get rid of this outdated fuel already? I hate to break it to the dumb out there but there are already cheaper and cleaner alternatives available right now. Let's start using them.

2)Obama Vacation haters- How come George W. Bush spent three times as much time on vacation as the current president, but when his predecessor did it no one said boo? Because that guy wasn't a democratic AND black, a double whammy for the racist right. Reagan spent more time on vacation too by the way and again, no protest either. Also, look up on Google how many stories come up about Obama's vacation and dozens will show up against him for going to Martha's Vineyard. Then look up for similar stories about Congress going on vacation. I got zero. What exactly is the President supposed to do at the White House while no business is going on any where other than twiddle his thumbs? I am sick or hearing how much money it's costing us or that he's not leading at a time when no one else is either. Blame Congress for going away when there is still so much to do. Obama could use some time off from those ass clowns. I know I sure do.

3)Al-Malaki- Talk about not leaving the party after being asked multiple time to go? This dick ruined Iraq (see number one for once again having a politician destroy yet another Muslim country) by turning into Saddam Hussein the minute he got into power and disenfranchised everyone that wasn't part of the ruling party. Awesome. This led to the formation of Isis, massive corruption and the near destruction of Iraq as a country. Then, after every single person demand he step down for rank incompetence, he refused and called up loyal troops to protect himself from leaving. That's a set of balls. This week, he finally left after the newly elected President nominated a new PM and Al-Malaki saw the writing on the wall. Whether these new officials will be any better remains to be seen but the track record for the region has been piss poor so far.

4)Hillary Clinton- What part of GO AWAY are you not getting lady? I swear, a 24 hour cycle can't go by lately without this woman saying something so stupid, I am actually dumber from hearing it. This week she bitched about Obama not arming Syrian rebels quicker, oblivious to the fact that these same rebels are the backbone of Isis, currently running rampant throughout Iraq. I actually feel Obama got this one right, with his only mistake setting an idiotic red line he had no intention of crossing which does make us look wishy-washy. Hillary has had such a bad summer that her poll numbers are falling faster than Chris Christie lunging for that last doughnut. At this rate, she will NOT be the nominee come 2016. She needs to shut up, disappear and come back with a much more populist, less corporation first tone. Otherwise, she may be toast.

5)Market Basket- The revolution continues as a second deadline to return to work or else face firings has come and gone, and yet the protests continue. This company has done everything wrong you can do and are still finding ways to fuck things up. Yesterday and today are showing mass numbers, sometimes in the thousands, of customers joining the protests with a solidarity rarely seen anymore. If they are dumb enough to fire everyone, they better burn their stores down for the insurance money because there is no way they survive the rest of the year on the handful of people who will shop there. Circuit City did the exact same thing when they cut wages and benefits to boost profits and they went bust in six months as no one shopped there at all anymore. Market Basket is headed for that same cliff.

6)Rick Perry- Perry became the first Governor of Texas indicted in almost a hundred years (the last time was 1917)for corruption charges. He was indicted by a grand jury or overstepping his power by demanding a city official resign after a drunken DUI and rage-a-thon at the local police station. He said resign of I will veto your budget, and when she did not go quietly into that good night, he did just that, which is illegal, I guess. To be honest, this seems like a long shot at best, but as I hate Rick Perry. I am always glad to see someone like him pay, even if it probably won't stick. I doubt this will hurt in the same way the bridge scandal hurt Chris Christie, but any bad news for this ass is good news for me.

7)Germany- Here is an axiom that applies to every single country: we all spying on each other. Germany had a fit we were listening into Chancellor Angela Merkel's phone calls, as well as the public. They bitched and moaned and played the victim card to the hilt. Now it turns out, Germany was spying on Kerry and Hillary Clinton's phone calls when they in Germany for various reasons. They claim it was all an accident, which is total bullshit. They spy on us, we spy on them and that is how the world works. Stop shedding crocodile tears every time something doesn't go your way already.

8)The NYPD- Earlier this week, the NYPD issued a memo to all of it's officers that filming of police is legal and not an arrestable offense. This was necessary because of the dozens of previous arrests that had been made, each one leading to a lawsuit which the department was going to lose. So what did the retards in blue do? They ignored said memo and arrested a guy, Randy Credico, who is currently running for governor of the state, for filming an arrest. Apparently they were accosting an old black man with the constitutionally challenged "stop and frisk" law, when Credico began filming the incident, as he is running on a platform against said practices. He was arrested for menacing a police officer, obstruction and resisting arrest. Right. The Governor is sure to have less than kind words for these two absolute morons, as this played right into his challenger's hands, who are probably at this moment on traffic duty somewhere or sitting at a desk in the filing room. Hope you didn't have career opening in the force because you two are screwed. Learn to read, numnuts.

9)Republicans- Another banner week for the right as several pundits proved their single digit IQ's, while voters in in one area also demonstrated their complete lack of common sense. Somehow, someway, voters in the 4th Congressional district of TN re-nominated Scott Desjarlais on a bizarre pro-family, pro-life campaign, even though he is on record for having dozens of mistresses and forced several of them to have abortions, including his own wife. How stupid are the people of TN? Pretty fucking dumb apparently to elect a known liar back into Congress. And these same assholes wonder why nothing gets done there. Then we have resident morons, Rush Limbaugh and Sarah Palin, both say incredibly stupid things. Limbaugh said on his radio program this week that the reason Robin Williams killed himself was because of his left leaning ideals. Yeah, I'm sure his Parkinson diagnosis and financial problems had nothing to do with it. Sarah Palin began her ill-advised Palin channel on the internet, costing a whopping $100 a year with a jumble of words that meant nothing to anyone over the age of three. Accentuating words that make no sense do help your point. Here is what she said in it's entirely below. Try not to blow out your eyeballs reading it as your brain may make a sudden escape attempt.

10)Ferguson, MO- There are no winners here. The police, especially Police Chief Thomas Jackson, who could well be the stupidest man on the planet right now, caused all of this through rank incompetence. First, they way over reacted to the situation and showed up as a military force instead of a serve and protect mentality. Then, they hummed and hawed their way with information that needed to all come out within 24 hours of the incident. They inexplicably failed to arrest said officer immediately, which would have caused a lot this rioting not to happen. Afterward, you could have let him go when new info surfaced, which it has. Lastly, you out an incendiary video which showed the victim in a less than flattering light, robbing a convenience story, which inflamed all of this all over again. On the flip side, we have shades of Trayvon Martin again as the "sweet, young" honors student, with no rap sheet and on his way to college, was in reality another black thug wannabe. I have uncovered evidence that Big Mike Brown was an aspiring rapper, which is always bad news, as it demonstrates a propensity towards violence and thuggish behavior. Here is a link to a site that has all of Brown's rap songs and pictures, all of which glorify violence, including killing White people, weed and sex. Wonderful.

New video has also surfaced of the aftermath, where two black people are video tapping the body in the street and talking about how the official story we have heard may not be true. According to the two people talking in the video, Brown attacked the cop first and may have charged at him afterward, or the direct opposite of what we have been told. Here's a link:
http://www.ijreview.com/2014/08/168698-eyewitness-recalls-important-detail-background-video-mins-ferguson-shooting/

Here's is a transcript of the video as well:

#1 How’d he get from there to there?

#2 Because he ran, the police was still in the truck – cause he was like over the truck

{crosstalk}

#2 But him and the police was both in the truck, then he ran – the police got out and ran after him

{crosstalk}

#2 Then the next thing I know he doubled back toward him cus - the police had his gun drawn already on him –

#1. Oh, the police got his gun

#2 The police kept dumpin on him, and I’m thinking the police kept missing – he like – be like – but he kept coming toward him

{crosstalk}

#2 Police fired shots – the next thing I know – the police was missing

#1 The Police?

#2 The Police shot him

#1 Police?

#2 The next thing I know … I’m thinking … the dude started running … (garbled something about “he took it from him”)


This is from a friend of the officer who shot Brown as well:

Well, then Michael takes off and gets to be about 35 feet away. And, Darren’s first protocol is to pursue. So, he stands up and yells, “Freeze!” Michael and his friend turn around. And Michael taunts him… And then all the sudden he just started bumrushing him. He just started coming at him full speed. And, so he just started shooting. And, he just kept coming. And, so he really thinks he was on something.”

Now if the cops had dashboard cameras or body cams, none of this would have happened in Ferguson because the truth would be out there for everyone to see instead of unreliable eyewitness testimony. Now none of this says Officer Darren Wilson is indeed innocent, but it sure does question his once absolute guilt too. This is why we have trials and everyone is innocent until proven guilty.
McKee cartoon: Racial tension in Ferguson

Rumors have also surfaced that looters from other towns are the ones causing problems which is unfortunately true. Most, I am guessing are young too. FBI stats say that 90% of all burglaries committed by teens nation wide are by black people. That's not racism. That's truth.

And politicians from both sides of the aisle are shocked, SHOCKED, that cops are this gung ho and armed to the teeth, which has been going on for 24 years now. Does nobody in Congress read the news at all anymore?

Unfortunately, the rank incompetence by Police Chief Jackson has made things worse. No cameras, no arrests, military options and the release of a  surveillance video has made things far, far worse. So congratulations Ferguson, MO, especially Chief Jackson, you are all douchebags of the week.

THE FERGUSON POLICE, THE ECONOMY AND OTHER THINGS LEADING US TO A FULL BLOWN POLICE STATE!

Someone needs to tell the current Police Chief of Ferguson, MO that the Internet exists, EVERYONE has a camera and the news will make stuff up if they have to fill time. What part of get the damned story out do you not get at this point and time? It is positively ridiculous that no one has any common sense anymore about anything.

First off, you, Police Chief Thomas Jackson, have to explain to me why none of your cars have dashboard cams. It is 2014 for God's sake. And apparently you've had body cams since 2012 and have yet to implement them, which had you had either at this point, would have definitive proof over what happened and none of this rioting would have occurred. Instead, you have hummed and hawed over releasing any information, including the name of the officer involved, while getting your military equipped stormtroopers, I mean "police force," to gang up on everyone who gets in their way, including journalists, who your thug brigade up and arrested at a McDonalds for no apparent reason and which most of was caught on tape. You are either a special type of retard or your IQ cannot be above single digits. Either way, you need to find a new line of work because you suck as a cop, let alone a Police Chief. Christ.

The funny part about all of this is how quickly this has turned from moron looters ruining their own neighborhood to a sudden shift toward the police which is where that anger should have been directed at first. The cops are not helping by standing around with tanks, machine guns and other devices meant to cowl a frightened public but in reality is actually making people more and more angry. The last few nights of rioting have been less about stealing and more about attacking the police force with rocks, bricks and Molotov cocktails. If you were watching the scene unfold without being told where it was, it looked like Gaza. That is a telling maneuver that should worry everyone, especially those in power. People are standing up to authority in mass numbers as revolution is hitting it's stride, anarchy close behind.

Things have gotten so bad the FBI is now involved. This will not help anything or anyone as the FBI for the most part is incapable of solving a crime if it happened in front of them lately. The best way to fix this is to get all the information out stat and stop hiding behind police-speak and double talk. And for God's sake, tell your thug crew to chill out as they are making things worse. New witness data suggests that the cop was in the wrong here, but as you guys are not talking, it is making you look guilty by association. As I mentioned the other day, this is the exact scene from V for Vendetta when the Fingerman kills the little girl, the public rises up and rips him apart with their bare hands. I have said for some time now that if the cops keep acting like brutes, the public will eventually start to rise up against them. They certainly have in Ferguson.

Then we have the economy which is adding more jobs, albeit mostly low paying, go no where jobs while corporations like Cisco are letting 6% of their work force go. Salaries are going up slightly, which is some good news, but it's too little, too late and the writing may be on the wall for another stock market crash. As the market is rigged beyond all rhyme or reason right now, an exact date will be impossible to guess, but current studies say that a 30% correction by year's end is around 90%. Yikes.

We also found out that we make 23% less now than we did in 2008, half this country is still making $30,000 or less (but take it from someone who makes a bit more than that, it is impossible to make ends meet on less than $40,000 anymore), and only 1.3 billion out of seven billion world wide have a full timed job. That is not sustainable for any society. 40% of this country is having financial hardships and that includes people like Robin Williams whose finances were near ruin according to people who knew him. He dreaded having to do Mrs. Doubtfire 2, and who could blame him. He needed the paycheck. Just like the rest of us who go to some crap job and deal with it because the alternative is being homeless and starving to death. Fun.

We spent two trillion dollars last year in aid for families because we allow corporations to pay little to no taxes, giving them tax breaks which they then use to diminish salaries and outsource to third world countries, which we are rapidly becoming.
