Pick a website, any website and scroll down on the comments section. Count how many it takes before, no matter the topic or conversation, some idiot slams Obama out of the blue. Now regular readers now this site is no fan of the President who is selling us down the river without a paddle, a boat, or even much of a river. However, to not take into consideration that Bush was the one who stole the river in the first place is disingenuous as best. BOTH suck. Period. Can we please stop pretending that the GOP will be the ones to bring balance back to the force. Yes, we may get rid of Obama and have Emperor Palpatine instead. That is NOT an improvement.

Yes the democrats are awful. Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and Diane Feinstein are horrible human beings. I would like to remind the right that everyone of these three was vulnerable in the last few elections but you guys ran the worst candidates against them. Harry Reid was mighty unpopular until you shoved Tea Party moron, Sharon Angle at us. Yuck, was what the electorate said and Reid went on to an easy victory. And that is ultimately what is wrong with the Republican brand right now. You've moved so far right, that a majority of this country does not support you. They win elections now through fraud, cheating, gerrymandering and voting suppression. Not exactly the democratic way of America exactly.

Talk to anyone on the right and all you hear are three things: Obamacare, the IRS and Benghazi. The fact that none of these three things are even in the top ten worst thing the President has done so far is telling. Obamacare, even to this day, is still being touted by the right as a takeover of health care by the government. It isn't even close. All power is still held by the private insurance companies who can no longer deny people coverage due to regulations that were long overdue. This is raising costs as a lot of people joining the ranks are sick people like me, while healthy, younger Americans are not signing up like they should. Cost control was never part of the package so prices are going up and up which would have happened whether or not Obamacare happened. Besides, are you willing to say "I don't care if twelve million people don't have health insurance and hundreds of thousands die so I can have a cheap plan?" Are Americans really that heartless?

The IRS scandal is not a scandal. Shouldn't the IRS be looking VERY closely at any organization that is anti-taxes and very political, or exactly the kind of people that are not deserving of tax exempt status? A lot of these groups shouldn't be getting approved in the first place, regardless of party affiliation. This is called the IRS doing their job.

The funniest one I have seen is the resurrection of Benghazi. Just when you thought they couldn't scrape the bottom of the barrel, the GOP does it again. According to an email from White House aide Ben Rhodes, the White House told Susan Rice to spin the information on the Sunday talk shows to show the White House in a good light. In other news, the sky is blue, water is wet and drinking salt water does not chase away the thirsties. Are they really willing to say that no president EVER has ever spun news to their advantage? REALLY? That is the heart and soul of politics. And, much like the Christie bridge scandal, there is nothing tying any of this to Obama personally, yet the right has already made that leap of logic but seem incapable of the same when the fatman from Jersey is involved. Did Obama spin this? Probably. Do I care? Not in the least.

The reason why security was so lax there in the first place was the GOP cut funding for it at least four times over the past six years. There is no evidence that Obama tried to cover up anything. Almost all the info has been debunked as either coming from unreliable sources or made up completely. Yet here we are again with Benghazi back in the news and the right foaming at the mouth. Politics is spin. That is never going to change. Unless you have a voice mail of Obama telling the security forces to take a hike so his mercs can kill the ambassador for whatever reason, there is nothing here. And there never will be. You are much more likely to find evidence Christie was behind the bridge scandal than this, and that was political spin at it's worst.

The point of all of this is that Obama may be a douchebag for all the right reasons, but what the radical right keeps bringing up isn't and it needs to stop. If you want this guy out of office, stop picking fights you can't win. Most of you finally shut up about the whole birth certificate nonsense that really hurt your cause. Stop talking about this now and move on to something real.

Meanwhile, Lindsay Graham is cruising to an easy re-election in South Carolina which means the school system there is broken because this ass should be sent packing. He is everything that is wrong with Congress and people down there still like him. That is stupidity squared. If you want to be a laughingstock SC, keep it up.

The Senate just lost a bid to raise the minimum wage again, which is fine if  you want the country to fall apart. The economic engine is out of gas and the freaking right are rebuilding the engine instead of just filling the tank. People need more money. No one is buying anything, housing is starting to become unaffordable even to rent and 20% of the families in the US have no job at all. That equates a real unemployment rate of at least 28%. If we don't start fixing things and that requires paying the middle class more and the rich a lot less, there won't be an economy left.

We probably have little time before the housing market collapses again, most likely by fall. When it does, we will see a real Depression, not the recession we are currently in. Our economy grew by.1% last quarter, which means in reality, it will be the third straight loss, as the real numbers is a retraction by 3-4% instead, once you eliminate the gimmicks they use to rig the numbers. This is the very definition of recession, one that is being masked by false data. The country is dying and neither side seems willing to stop it. If you vote for 99% of the GOP candidates you are guaranteeing it. Stop voting for corporatists on either side, or await to be a slave when the world falls apart. Your choice and time is running out.

It has been a banner week if you wanted to see people stick both feet in their mouth due to varying degrees of racism while Barack Obama simultaneously gave people everywhere good reasons to actually be racist. I hope black people like having a black president because at the rate Obama is going, it may be the next century before it happens again. I am the furthest thing from racist and even I find myself having a hard time not using the N-word whenever I even think of that man. How on God's green Earth do you make me start wishing George W. Bush was still in office?

Let's start with Cliven Bundy whose statements about race pale in comparison to Clippers owner, Don Sterling. Bundy's remarks were NOT taken out of context either, no matter what right wing idiots keep pedaling, but were not so much racist as just stupid. Bundy is another right wing loon who thinks government policies are the worst thing EVER to happen in this country, brainwashed by Fox News. He wasn't so much being racist toward blacks, but demonstrating a limited intelligence when it came to history and politics. Even thinking that black people were somehow better under slavery than now is just foolish and shows Bundy is not the brainpower conservatives want him to be. Plus, he's like a hundred with a world view that no longer applies.

However, Don Sterling's comments WERE racist and then some. The conversations were said to be authentic by Sterling's ex-girlfriend, who happens to be half black/half Mexican, the same groups he was fined for discriminating against in renting apartments too. He is well known for being cheap with salaries which would explain why the Clippers have sucked so hard for the last few decades. All of this paints Sterling as no better than a plantation owner, sleeping with the help while using strong black men to make him money which he pays far less than others.

The claims of "embezzlement" against this ex-girlfriend by Sterling's wife (they have been separated for years) do not seem to hold much water as they were all gifts from Sterling himself and not stolen as the wife would allege. The tapes have been said to be real by this same ex-girlfriend who said she recorded them at his request because the old fart was getting forgetful. She denies releasing the tapes though.

Supposedly, there are 100 of hours of tapes, meaning his racist views may be just getting started. That cannot be good. The Clippers lost last night as well, as if there was any way they really going to win. It's kind of hard to have your mind on the game when you realize you are not far off from Twelve Years a Slave. Apparently, there was also some sort of sex scandal back in 2003, with Sterling getting caught with hookers. Oops.

The NBA announced they will hold a press conference tomorrow at 2 PM EST to say what their investigation into the tapes show to see if they are authentic. My guess is he is very, very screwed.

On the flip side, we have President Obama who, fresh of his attempt to kill the internet, walks home empty handed from his Asian trip in which he tried to get the horrendous TPP treaty signed to no avail. Seems countries like Japan, China and the Philippines have balked at the idea of corporate sovereignty that would force them to accept GMO products, which they currently ban. The TPP is the single worst piece of legislation to ever be introduced and would give complete control to multi-nationals to such an extent they could pick and choose which laws to follow and which to ignore with impunity. This is not an exaggeration. It would literally create a formidable fascist empire no longer run at all by governments anywhere. Does anyone really think that Obama is not a corporatist as he is actively trying to kill the internet and the country at large? This is treason and we should be demanding the impeachment of all who have voted for the TPP which would be Obama and 90% of the GOP. Notice even corporatists like Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi have publically backed down due to sites like this demanding this thing go away and quick. This is why I am forced to pick democrats over the insane GOP because as bad as they are, even they are not advocating the end of America. Obama is NOT a democrat no matter what he says. He is advocating fascism, pure and simple.

I am hoping many of you out there are calling the FCC and your local politicians to demand that net neutrality stay in place and that Tom Wheeler be sent packing. I sure am. When your at it, call their attention to the TPP treaty and say that their opposition to such a terrible law is tantamount to whether you will vote for them in 2014. Right or left, net neutrality and the TPP are two of the most important things in the history of this country and if we don't get them both to either be re-established or to take a dirt nap. this country will become a third world country very, very soon.

It was a tough one this week, between Putin seemingly trying to start WW3 and the Obama administration and newly minted corporate shill for the FCC, Tom Wheeler, singlehandedly destroying this country, the Internet and, most likely, the world economy. I had to go with Obama who lied AGAIN about protecting net neutrality (seriously have we had a President who was a bigger liar than this asshole) and Tom Wheeler who just gave corporations complete control over everything. Let's see those runner ups in an increasingly bleak world.

1)The Police- This week we got stories about ANOTHER shooting in Albuquerque, this time of a 19 year old girl, a Texas police officer caught on film tripping and pushing students who rushed a football field after a big win, another Texas cop who shot himself in the leg after trying to kill a pit bull who was later filmed by local news playing happily with several small children and not an ounce of aggression seen, and the NYPD unwisely going on social media to ask questions from the public, who responded with picture after picture of police brutality, including several of questionable stops and even the frisking of pets. And that is just a sampling of what happened this week. If anyone wants to know why guns are becoming more and more prevalent, the rise of the warrior cop is certainly one of them.

2)Georgia- On the flip side of the gun argument is this act of utter stupidity where the state now allows guns in places like churches, schools, airports and bars. I am all for ending gun free zones but allowing drunken idiots to carry weapons into places where alcohol is served is a recipe for disaster. We can start the clock as too how long it is before someone gets shot in a drunken brawl. I say Tuesday.

3)George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Condoleezza Rice and Donald Rumsfeld- Here's something that never gets reported by our increasingly lousy media outlets: these four are all wanted criminals. You read that right as all four have been indicted for war crimes abroad and if they leave the country, will be arrested and brought to trial at Nuremberg for charges. This of course has gone nowhere, as the US is not going to extradite any of the four and as long as they stay out of Europe, they will never see a trial. However, the ICC is going after them in civil court now and the case is in front of a judge in Northern CA as we speak. If he rules against the President and his cronies, they will be extradited to Nuremberg anyway where they will also face both civil and criminal charges. Funny how none of that made the news and yet we still think we live in an open society. You don't.

4)Pot studies- There has been a plethora of studies saying that pot is bad for you and it should be treated like the devil it is. Unfortunately, for those is us who can actually read and understand these reports, I can saw they all have one thing in common: they are junk. The brain scan study touted by anti-pot crusaders has been ruthlessly eviscerated from experts in the field and the French study about pot causing heart attacks was every bit as worthless as every single second hand smoke study I have ever seen. It came down to, did you smoke pot, did you have a heart attack, and that's it. No other causes such as lifestyle, weight or other factors seem to have been weighed in. The fact most of these studies are being written by anti-pot people is rather telling as well. Can we please stop and admit that while smoking weed is most likely not great for your health, it's far less dangerous than cigarettes or alcohol, both of which are legal? Can we please create a new industry for a country in desperate need of new revenue and good paying jobs. Legal weed is a way out of this deep hole we have dug ourselves.

5)Michael Pineda- I live in MA so I have to hate the Yankees as it is the law here. However, even Yankees fans have to admit that Pineda crossed a line by blatantly cheating in a game this week. After almost getting caught a few weeks ago cheating against the Red Sox with pine tar on his hand, this week he didn't even try to hide it by having a huge smear of pine tar on his neck. Did he think because he was black, it wouldn't show up? What a moron. This loser got tossed from the game and a ten game suspension. Good.

6)Cliven Bundy- I have defended Cliven Bundy on this site as I still feel the Federal Government is overreaching and demanding taxes in places they have no business demanding them and then using brute force when they don't get their way. However, regardless of how the right wingers are trying to spin it, Cliven Bundy's racist statement against black people was NOT taken out of context. I would agree, I don't think Bundy is a racist per say, just an incredible stupid man who has watched Fox News and right wing radio way too much. The entire clip shows that Bundy is not the racist the left is making him out to be as he does defend Mexicans as hard working good people. However, no matter how you spin this, black people were NOT better off under slavery than now under welfare. NOT. EVEN. CLOSE. This is a common theme in right wing philosophy who think any government is bad, until of course they need government like the police, fire department, paved street or schools. The problem is not government but corporate control of said government. Cliven Bundy is still in the right in some ways for defending his land and not paying taxes, but his views on black people are woefully antiquated.

7)Mike Grimm- Speaking of out of touch views, the Republican representative from NY who recently threatened a reporter with throwing off a balcony for asking questions about a FBI probe has been indicated by a grand jury of unspecified charges that will made public this week. Illegal contributions to his campaign and breaking campaign finance laws are the most likely charges and will make his re-election in 2014 unlikely, giving democrats a solid chance at his seat. This Tea Party loser needs to go, hopefully to jail.

8)The right/media versus Hillary- In what can only be described as a Cliven Bundy-like statement, the media and some right wingers have speculated that Hillary may not run as she is set to be a grandmother, or in some cases, that this was all planned out so Hillary would have a baby prop to use in 2015 and on as she seeks the presidency. Nevermind the fact that this question never came up against Mitt Romney who has dozens of grandchildren, or that Sarah Palin used baby props in her ill-fated attempt at the Vice Presidency, Hillary is being asked questions that no potential presidential candidate has ever been asked. Sexist much?

9)Russia- Putin sure seems to want WW3 as he is either conducting the largest military exercise in history or he is setting his troops up for a massive invasion. Kiev has responded by putting their military on high alert and daring him to invade. Either way the Ukrainians lose as they either get controlled by fascist Russia or fascist US. If the Russian win, they get to look forward to a devalued country where Russia runs the show, or austerity measures imposed by the West so that businesses can rape them blue. Good times either way.

10)Barack Obama, Tom Wheeler and the FCC- How can you tell Obama is lying? His lips are moving. This ass promised to protect net neutrality since 2007, even going so far as to say the appointment of Tom Wheeler, who worked for cable and wireless businesses before this job, would be a champion for the cause. But of course, that was all bull and as Wheeler has only been in office since January, he has managed to find a way to fuck us all in the ass and not even bother to lube up first. His ruling on the end of net neutrality spells the end of the internet, small businesses and the economy. Way to go, Obama. What next do you have planned, perhaps stocking those death camps you say don't exist, but do, with people like me? Everyone should be calling their congressman and the FCC and demanding net neutrality stay. The end result otherwise is a huge increase in cable and internet bills, sites like this disappearing from the web, total media control and, eventually, an end to capitalism and the economy, as small businesses will have no competition against the bigger ones which will crush them. If this law was in effect a decade ago, there would be no Facebook as MySpace would have destroyed them. There would be no Reddit, no Alex Jones, no Warmonger Report. Is this really what the American people want? I doubt it. So congratulations Obama, the FCC and Wheeler you are indeed douchebag of the week.

I have defended Cliven Bundy somewhat on this site, not so much for his strange views of not recognizing the Federal Government and the like, but for standing up to government thugs who think it is perfectly acceptable to show up with an overwhelming show of force, set up "free amendment zones" which is just a new way of killing our first amendment, kill cattle just cause, and beat protestors which video shows were not causing the trouble the New Gestapo claimed.

However, Bundy and his followers have made some very questionable comments on TV, the worst coming from a former Arizona Sheriff, Richard Mack, who had showed up to protest/protect the Bundy Ranch, when he said ON CAMERA that they planned on using women as human shields so if the Feds started to fire, they'd have to kill them first. While technically not a bad plan to get sympathy for your cause if video shows up of armed thugs mowing down women, never say something like that on tape, moron. I wouldn't recommend using woman as shields either by the way, but as history shows, propaganda is mighty effective.

But Cliven Bundy has done what I long expected him to do: get enough rope to hang himself with. Bundy is no intellectual beacon and today proved that with one of the dumbest things I have heard this year; a statement so racist, so vile, that Republicans of all sorts have fled from him as if he were radioactive, which he now is. With a few paragraphs of insanity, told to a reporter from the NYT, that much like Richard Mack, he has now painted the entire militia movement as neo-KKK just missing the robes and pointy hats. Here is what he said in it's entirety from the Washington Post so I cannot be accused of taking this out of context:

"I want to tell you one more thing I know about the Negro,” he said. Mr. Bundy recalled driving past a public-housing project in North Las Vegas, “and in front of that government house the door was usually open and the older people and the kids — and there is always at least a half a dozen people sitting on the porch — they didn’t have nothing to do. They didn’t have nothing for their kids to do. They didn’t have nothing for their young girls to do.

“And because they were basically on government subsidy, so now what do they do?” he asked. “They abort their young children, they put their young men in jail, because they never learned how to pick cotton. And I’ve often wondered, are they better off as slaves, picking cotton and having a family life and doing things, or are they better off under government subsidy? They didn’t get no more freedom. They got less freedom.”
Wow. WTF was that? That only way that statement could be more racist is if it did it in blackface while having a re-enactment of Twelve Years A Slave being performed behind him as a comedy. Now you would think that Captain Dumbass might realize he stepped in it, but no, this guy kept plugging on. Here is what he went on to say on various radio shows:
I'm not racist" and that the New York Times should retract their story. "I would appreciate that. I think they should do that," Bundy said. "They're making it a racist-type thing."
On Peter Schiff's talk radio show, however, he stood by his remarks. "Are they happier now under this government subsidy system than they were when they were slaves, and they was able to have their family structure together, and the chickens and garden, and the people had something to do? And so, in my mind I’m wondering, are they better off being slaves, in that sense, or better off being slaves to the United States government, in the sense of the subsidies. I’m wondering. That’s what. And the statement was right. I am wondering.”

The answer to that is a resounding NO! Black people were not better off during slavery, a horrific time in American history that should be seen as a resounding failure of common sense and human decency, not a nostalgic dip into the water of days past. Rand Paul, Paul Ryan and dozens of others who have supported him have distanced themselves from him so far and so fast, he might as well be on Mars. Here's a smattering of what some politicians  and pundits have said:

Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul released a statement Thursday saying, Bundy's "remarks on race are offensive and I wholeheartedly disagree with him.

Van Susteren has also distanced herself from Bundy. A headline on her Web site linking to the New York Times story reads, "Let Me Make This Plain: I Condemn What Cliven Bundy Said About African Americans."

Nevada Sen. Dean Heller's spokesperson said Thursday, “Senator Heller completely disagrees with Mr. Bundy’s appalling and racist statements, and condemns them in the most strenuous way.” While on a local television show with his fellow Nevada senator Harry Reid, Heller said, “What Sen. Reid may call domestic terrorists, I call patriots. “We have a very different view on this.”

Nevada Assemblywoman Michele Fiore, an outspoken supporter of Bundy, also released a statement Thursday. "I strongly disagree with Cliven Bundy’s comments about slavery," she said. "Mr. Bundy has said things I don’t agree with; however, we cannot let this divert our attention from the true issue of the atrocities BLM committed by harming our public land and the animals living on it."

Arizona state Sen. Kelli Ward — who spoke at a Bundy rally in Nevada this month — wrote in an e-mail to The Washington Post:  "Apparently he has some thoughts that aren't shared by many Americans. He is free to think and speak as he chooses (even if it may offend) and we are free to listen (or not) and form our own opinions. I am thankful for our amazing Constitution and the 1st Amendment right to freedom of speech — if I don't agree, I don't seek to silence or shame the speaker or to paint his associates with the broad brush of collective condemnation." Ward says she also disagrees with Bundy's statements to the Times.

That is a lot of people telling you to shut the hell up. His fifteen minutes are up, as I doubt even Sean Hannity will have this guy on. Cliven Bundy is TOXIC to anyone who doesn't want to branded a racist, which is the kind of thing that can end a career in today's hypersensitive world. A good example would be a joke one my favorite comedians, Joan Rivers, made about the Cleveland Kidnapping case when she said that living with her daughter was cramped and "that those girls in the basement in Cleveland had more space."Of course people took offense, especially the three girls rescued, but come on, that's funny. Rivers has refused to back down which she shouldn't. There's a big difference between this and the nonsense coming from Cliven Bundy.

This is why racism is still alive and well in this country when old farts like Bundy think black people were happier as slaves, when they didn't "suck off the Welfare teat," as Bundy would put it. I am praying to God that this show up on The Daily Show tonight and I also expect to hear about it in the much anticipated new show this Sunday from John Oliver. Cliven Bundy lived up to his last name which has been synonymous with loser since the early 90's, and will certainly appear on my douchebag list later this week.

A quick side note is that the FCC killed net neutrality and with it, the future of the Internet and this country. Call your senators and representatives to get them to pass legislation to stop this power grab from greedy multinationals. This ruling could raise rates, create a two tiered internet system, kill sites like this, kill small businesses and end the economy. Aren't our government organizations grand now that they are completely controlled by the corporations?

There is a stunning discourse right now between what is really happening (a big shout out to Mike Rivero for his excellent site) and the reality of it all. Just yesterday, the government released economic forecasts and, surprise, surprise, we are doing swimmingly according to it. The stock market is still going up, housing prices continue to rise, people are finding it easier to get a job and it's blue skies from here on out. Several economists they quoted say they see good things for the next five months with a huge uptick in economic growth. I would love to know where they got their projections from because all signs point the opposite way to a disaster of epic proportions.

The one thing we can all agree on is the stock market is indeed going up. However, it is going up, not due to increasing economic strength, but due to stock rigging and market buy backs. That's it. We know this because we have brains and some of us can still think for ourselves. Recent facts, like the FBI investigation into HFT, suggest that the stock market is a very bad indicator anymore of economic anything.

From here the lies begin to grow. Housing is still going up, but only in select places. If you are talking about Boston, NYC or DC, then yes, the housing market is still strong there, especially for expensive properties which are having a hard time keeping in stock. However, if you live in LA or Las Vegas or Phoenix or Detroit, housing is sinking and fast. The Blackstone Group, along with two other equity firms, have pulled back on buying housing by as much as 70%. This is causing a huge drop in prices in these areas which will eventually swamp the system once again. It looks a lot like 2007 again with the strong possibility that housing may once again tank the markets.

As for jobs, yeah there are jobs, just ones that pay next to nothing. We keep hearing that all those people who got laid off over the past 4 years are working again, which we are. However, 99% of us are making WAY less than we used to and economic growth shows this. Coldwater Creek, an excellent place to buy clothes by the way, is going under due to the fact that most of us can't afford new clothes right now. Family Dollar is likewise shuttering many of it's stores, meaning that many can't even afford to shop there anymore, a troubling aspect. The retail apocalypse continues as many shop on line, but even that shows a massive decline in purchasing power from that just a few years ago. Recent grads are finding it easier to get jobs which makes sense because everyone in the forties or older is being shown the door, so corporations can get cheaper labor. That is what your future holds right now kids, hard work for little pay, until you finally get to a point where you are actually making money and then they show you the door. Welcome to the right to work country of the United States of Suck It Little Man. Employees have no power, thanks to the right convincing the less stable of us that unions are pedophiles that deserve the death penalty.

Our middle class has fallen behind Canada now as the world's richest. As Seth Myers put it, "The 12 of those left in the middle class are mighty pissed." The poor have fared even worse, as we have fallen to fifth, behind Canada, Sweden, Norway, Finland and the Netherlands, otherwise known as the "scourge of socialism" which the right likes to scream about, not realizing that the best places to live on Earth are socialistic democracies. Go figure, helping the poor helps everyone. Where I have heard that before? Jesus maybe? No, it can't be as those Bible thumpers would certainly support whatever Jesus says, right? RIGHT?

Temp work is all the rage right now, as they can pay near nothing, offer zero benefits and get all the perks of having a slave. Awesome. All I find anymore as freelancer is temp work which pays okay but offers no stability or long term prospects. Some jobs literally pay nothing, which I do not even respond to. How bad is it? Nine out of the top ten jobs right now pay less than $35,000 a year. Try living off that with a family of four. It can't be done. Even with both parents working, a house, a new car and a vacation once a year is impossible under that salary. We have been reduced to a slave labor force and no one wants to upset the apple cart for fear of losing the few possessions they have left. To them I say, you sir are a Pussy. It's better to live on your feet than die on your knees. If we don't fight back, and soon, it will be far too late. Demand more from your politicians, your media, your friends. Stop voting for people whose greed is unmatched on either side of the aisle. Take back what is ours because very soon, it won't matter and any revolution will be doomed before it starts. Don't let it happen that way.

Monday, April 21, 2014


Other than the Ukraine debacle which has false flags within false flags within false flag (the whole thing is starting to make my hear hurt), news has been all but quiet on the declining housing market in many key areas and a possible Ebola outbreak hitting outside of Africa. The last one is the most frightening but the most dubious of claims as well considering the info is from one source only.

Ebola is a horrific disease that I am well acquainted with. I am fascinated with infectious diseases, which is probably why Stephen King's The Stand is one of my favorite books of all time. Over the years I have spent a lot of time studying hemorrhagic outbreaks, knowing full well that these disease could go airborne at any time. The monkey outbreak of Ebola at a Reston monkey facility, chronicled in the great book The Hot Zone, demonstrated that the disease can be transmitted that way, although in this case only the monkey's were affected. Infection did spread to mankind but, due to a single chromosome, was inert in people. That's how close we came to the end of the world in the 1990's, one chromosome. YESH!

But now a new strain is back and it is spreading across several countries in Africa, including cities for the first time ever. Now, according to Turner Radio Network, Ebola has struck Italy. A quick word about TRN first. It was once owned by Hal Turner, a renown douchebag who was one of those idiot Holocaust deniers I so hate. When your theories can be demolished in less time that it takes me to write this sentence, you have a terrible argument. The Holocaust happened and I and ever other sane person can prove it. Period. That being said, Hal Turner was forced to give up this website and others due to a court order until 2015, so the current site has nothing to do with him. What I can see of the site seems to suggest a legitimate news gathering site that has some insightful articles but the fact that this article only appears here makes me question it's legitimacy still.

According to Christian relief groups, the Ebola outbreak has jumped 15% in the last 24 hours in the affected African nations. It is a new strain, never seen before, and as a result, false positives, and worse, false negatives are being reported. Unconfirmed reports say that these false negatives have allowed 40 infected migrant workers to have been quarantined in Pisa, Italy with symptoms of the disease. The Italians claim it is a hoax but are refusing to explain why an entire hospital in Pisa has been locked off to anyone. If this true, and there is no way any government will tell us the truth until they can't hide it anymore so as not cause a panic. Here are the probabilities of a world wide epidemic should this story be true:

63% in Italy within 8 days
44% in Spain within 15 days
77% in Riyadh/Saudi within 21 days
40% in Libya within 25 days
29% in the US within 28 days
37% in Egypt within 33 days

There have already been two unconfirmed cases in Canada and one in the US, but nothing more has been heard and it is entirely possible that both government were NOT lying when they said the people had Lassa or other forms of hemorrhagic fevers. Or they are just covering up the truth that a pandemic the likes of which we are NOT prepared for is going to ravage this planet soon.

Meanwhile, the housing market is showing signs of slowing down in several key markets, echoing the signs of problems like 2008 all over again. While Boston and Virginia have seen increases still, California, Nevada and Florida have all started to see rapid declines over the past few months. As for those notions that "bad weather" is to blame, I would like to point out that places like San Francisco and Orange County are experiencing a huge drop in smaller priced houses and their weather has been near perfect this whole time. This is the economy we have right now: if you are rich, those places you shop and things you buy are going gangbusters. Houses over $10 million are selling just fine. Houses selling for less than $300,000 are staying empty. The same goes for stores. Nordstrom is doing just fine while Coldwater Creek is done and Family Dollar is closing half their stores. The rich are the only ones with money it seems.

The Blackstone Group, along with two other equity firms, have announced they are going to slow buying properties for rental purposes 70% as the prices have gotten too high to make a profit as you can't rent to people who have no money to pay said rent. This is going to have an adverse affect on the housing market as these three groups are buying a majority of the homes right now. This has caused an not so unexpected drop on prices in many areas. Here are the areas hardest hit:

Nevada, 34 percent remain seriously underwater, Florida (31 percent), Illinois (30 percent), Michigan (29 percent), and Ohio (27 percent), according to RealtyTrac data.
Hard-hit metro areas include Las Vegas (37 percent seriously underwater), Lakeland, Fla., (36 percent), Palm Bay-Melbourne-Titusville, Fla., (35 percent), Cleveland (35 percent), Akron, Ohio (34 percent), and Detroit (33 percent).

Chances are good that the housing market will continue to fall now that the epic buying is going to slow dramatically and prices are going to start nose diving in some places by the fall. If it does, expect the stock market to go right along with it, and if it happens right before the elections in November, the democrats could get a massive beating.

Lastly, we have Ukraine which seems to be on the verge of WW3. Everything that happens is blamed on someone else, from the Jewish registration hoax to the deaths of Russian supporters at a check point. It's the ADL. It's Putin. It's Neo-fascists. The finger pointing never ends and, as a result, we have no way of knowing what is true and what is fake. Just like our nightly news. We have to worry about an economy that appears to be on life support, an Ebola virus that may be going global and a massive war about to start over land we have been fighting about for hundreds of years. Just once, I would like some good news from the planet. Today certainly wasn't it.

This has been astounding week for people doing things that ultimately they should have known better. It crossed generational lines, continents and race in such a spectacular way that I can only surmise that the human race is doomed if people like this can someone exist in mass numbers and survive. Their stupidity is quite literally killing us. Let us see some really good runner ups.

1)Michael F. Egan III- According to this failed actor, Bryan Singer allegedly raped him during a gay party when he was 15. Sexual assault is a horrific thing and I have met way too many women, and even a few men, who have experienced this first hand and the trauma it causes. In many of these cases, they were not reported because they lacked any proof said assault occurred. And that is exactly why I have such a hard time with this case. First off, it happened in 1999 which is far too long to decide to press charges. We have statutes of limitations for a reason and this is exactly why. Why wait so long to come forward? Now in his defense, one of the people at these parties for the openly gay Singer, had a man, Marc Collins Rector (wow what an perfect last name) who was convicted of underage sex and is also named in the suit. According to reports, Egan and his mother went to the FBI in 2000 who investigated and found no evidence of said crime. Also, Singer was NOT named a suspect at the time, a fact that really hurts Egan's case. This kind of behavior appears to have some truth to it within Hollywood and the government, both of which have had many allegations against them of child sex abuse, but the facts seem to say this may be about money rather than reality.

2)Frazier Glenn Cross/ Frazier Glenn Miller- Another loon with a gun decided to kill Jews in Kansas City and proceeded to shoot three innocent people. Hilariously, even though he was outside a Jewish Community Center and a Jewish Retirement Home, Cross actually managed not to kill any Jews at all, but two Methodists and a Roman Catholic. Oops. This waste of space can go to death row knowing he was a failure at everything in his life, including his assassinations. This ass spent his entire life hating Jewish people, belonged to many white supremacists groups over the decades, ran for the Senate last year and is now going to spend what little time he has left behind bars. Good.

3)ADL- On the opposite end of the spectrum, these douchebags may be trying to start WW3 for unknown reasons. Anonymous has released email information that the ADL was responsible for the now debunked "Jewish registration" leaflets that were handed out in Ukraine last week. Anonymous also released information about a proposed attack on Melitopol Airport on May 10th that never happened which means either the information was wrong, or the fact the attack was known before hand caused it to be scrapped. The fact remains that the ADL may be trying to accomplish false flag operations that could end mankind. Swell.

4)Generation Wuss- This generation had a spectacular week of ineptitude with many, many instances of them doing things that at the very least would get them arrested stat or, at worst, shot full of holes by a trigger happy police force that has a tendency to shoot first and ask questions later. An unnamed Dutch teen thought it would be so funny to tweet a bomb threat to American Airlines. She wrote "Hello my name’s Ibrahim and I’m from Afghanistan," Sarah wrote Sunday. "I’m part of Al Qaida and on June 1st I’m gonna do something really big bye" Of course, the airlines wrote back that the FBI was being informed because they have to take these things seriously. In response to this, dozens of other parroted her tweets with one bomb threat after the other. I hope you like the FBI coming to your home guys because these guys have NO sense of humor. The king of douchebags this week was without a doubt though, Kevin "Kayvon" Edson, a 25 year old lunatic who though it would be great fun to dress in a black beekeeper outfit, with a backpack, barefoot, screaming "Boston Strong," as he approached the Finish Line where crowd's of people were. When confronted by the police and demanding to know what he had in his backpack, he said "a rice cooker." It is stunning he wasn't shot there and then. If this had been NYC he would have been filled so fill of holes you could have seen through him. That and the forty innocent bystanders that would have been struck as those guys can't hit the broad side of a barn. Instead he was taken into custody, his rice cooker filled with confetti. His mom says he has a mental illness which is the only explanation for what a dumb, almost fatal, stunt this was.

5)US Airways- This week in a shocking bit of incompetence, the airline published a NSFW photo of a woman with a toy plane jammed into a place you wouldn't normally find such an object. Worse, the photo was sent in response to a customer complaint as in, "You can take your complaint and shove it right where we are showing you." Wow, and you thought the airline losing your luggage was bad. This did lead to some very funny Twitter responses like, "I see you've found Flight 370," and "You are now free to move about the cabin."

6)Meagan Huntsman- Over the past decade this insane women hid her pregnancies (meaning she must be real fat), gave birth in secret, and then proceeded to murder each and every infant. Seven times this occurred and was only found out when a family member was cleaning out her garage when he came across the mummified infants. Ick!

7)Cable Companies- According to Reddit founder, Alexis Ohanian, cable companies are ready to start exploiting the end of net neutrality and begin raising rates and limiting content. The Tea Party and Republicans have been all over this as against net neutrality as in their minds, government regulations are stifling business. What is actually happening is since they do not have ANY regulations, they are going to screw us over hard and change the internet as we know it, possibly charging a tier like rate and slowing down connections to any website that doesn't pay them for the privilege of better service. They are a monopoly thanks to Joe "Droopy" Lieberman's deregulation bill a decade ago which has done nothing but raise prices and lower quality. Thanks Joe for being a corporatist. Your service in Congress will not be missed. I wish you'd take the lunatic wing of the GOP with you.

8)Bryan Fischer- This ass and director of Issues Analysis for the fundamentalist American Family Association said this week that poor people needed to “kiss the ground” beneath the richest 1 percent of Americans. He went on to blame Obama for using the IRS to go after the 1% which is not only not true, it also proves this jerk doesn't have a lick of common sense. He went to say this:

The top 1 percent are funding 30 percent of the government!” the radio host explained. “So, rather than the poor, the low income and the middle class being resentful of these people, they should be kissing the ground on which they walk!”
 “Who’s paying for the EBT cards? Who’s paying for food stamps? Who’s paying for the women and infant children program? Who’s paying for subsidized housing? Who’s paying for Medicaid? It is the top 1 percent,” he continued.

“So, they ought to be given ticker-tape parades once a week in all of our major cities to thank them for funding welfare for everybody.”

Fischer went on to say that it was a “myth” that Americans had a right to so-called “entitlements” or earned government benefits.

“Every bit of this is the involuntary transfer of wealth,” he remarked. “That makes us a socialist country. This is Marxism on display.”

First off, while he is right that only the top ranges pay taxes, it is the top 10% not 1%, and the richest among us pay NO taxes as they stash trillions away in offshore accounts. And I hate to break it to him but every country has socialist ideas that work just fine. Every insurance policy on Earth is based on socialism. The fire department, police and teachers are socialism in action. Is he really so stupid to think we don't need any of that? What he is asking for is anarchy the likes of which was brilliantly parodied on "Family Guy," when Peter joins the Tea Party, eliminates all forms of government and then watches the town go to hell in a handbasket when everything stops working. I know what Fischer can kiss on me and it is NOT my feet.

9)General Mills- In a true douchebag move, anyone who "likes" this company on Facebook or downloads a coupon from their website, forever gives up any right to sue regardless of criminal intent from said company. So let me get this straight, just because I like one of your products, you've hidden legalese into the "consent" content that prevents me from getting restitution even if you intentionally poison me? Fuck off comes to mind. I would suggest everyone unfriend these assholes immediately, lest that food poisoning you get leave you with nothing more than a huge hospital bill.

10)Captain Lee Joon-seok- For some unknown reason, this dick decided this week to emulate the captain of the Italian ship, the Concordia, with far more lethal results. First, he let an inexperienced third mate pilot the ship alone in dangerous waters, capsized the ferry by moving the boat too quickly, then told everyone to stay below decks as he and his crew fled to safety. Hundreds are feared dead as many drowned unable to get out. Guess who has been arrested just like the Italian Concordia Captain? What is tremendously odd is that this happened during the week of April 15th-21st where history shows a preponderance of death and destruction throughout history. Even odder, many involve teens or children. Waco, the OKC bombing, the BP oil spill and the Columbine shootings all happened in this time period, and continues with this tragic ferry accident. I have heard rumors that these are the feast days of Baal, who likes child sacrifice, but have never been able to confirm it. Either way, this is one of the deadliest weeks of the year, every year and Captain Lee Joon-seok is indeed douchebag of the week. And just perhaps, Baal as well.

“We’re now in a position where cable companies — because they’re basically oligopolies, right? — because there’s only a handful of them, want to break (net neutrality), Ohanian said. “They don’t want the Internet to be flat; they want it to look like your cable. They want you to have a basic package, right? Where you get Bing search for free, because they’ve made a deal with Microsoft. If you want Google, it’s an extra $10 a month, but it’s a really good search engine, so you’ll pay for it, right?”

court in January struck down as unconstitutional a “net neutrality” rule prohibiting broadband Internet providers from blocking or playing favorites for online services, ruling that the Federal Communications Commission lacks authority to enforce it.

I want the Millennials, who I not so affectionately call Generation Wuss, know that I am stereotyping your group as I know for a fact many of you out there are doing something about change. The problem is, most of you aren't. And this isn't just your group failing the system. We all are at this point. Let us take a look at all four generations and see what the have to offer and what they are completely oblivious to.

The Greatest Generation grew up during the Depression and WW2. They saw real hardship, sacrifice and death the likes of which haven't been seen since. They grew up with a father who went to work, or maybe not if it was in the 1930's, and a mother who stayed home with the kids. They oversaw the rise of the biggest middle class the world had ever seen, America was prosperous and, for the most part, happy. However, since those grand old days, this group has turned into some of the most bitter, racist, Republican bastards still breathing. This is the group that votes against their own interests on a daily basis as the GOP's party platform routinely wants to eliminate Social Security and Medicare, a program 90% of them rely on. That is stupid. It would be like voting against food or clean air. Oh wait, they vote against that too as Republican anti-regulation nonsense is poisoning us regularly. These are the regular Fox News viewers and the most-ill informed individuals alive today. Talk Radio exists to placate them and they eat it up and believe every word of it. Their generation does not have the same degree of mistrust in government and media that the rest of us have as, when they were young, that level of deception did not exist yet. It does now and these old farts are ill equipped to deal with it.

Then comes the worst generation of all, the Baby Boomers. When they first got started, growing up in the 50's and early 60's, which was a very good time to be a kid, they had the whole world in front of them. Again, they had a dad who went to work and made a very good salary, enough for a house in the suburbs, a new car and vacations, which came into vogue in this era. Mom stayed home. As they got older, they stood up to authority, massed in great numbers and helped end an unjust, illegal war. That is how protest is done as some people died for what they believed in, something today's youth seems to have no courage to do. But then the Boomers sold out to large corporations where, instead of promoting a fairness for all, changed business into a Darwinian free for all which eviscerated the middle class and led to every problem we are having today. The made lots of money and figured out ways to hide it, not pay taxes, steal from everyone and everything and then blame everyone but themselves for the issues they created. The men of this generation are overwhelmingly Republican while the women lean more to the left. If you were black in this generation you were the first generation to have a chance to land a good job, a milestone thanks to LBJ in one of his better moments. The Baby Boomers ruined this country for the rest of us and it looks like it will never be fixed. However, this generation still has an independent streak and will stand up to authority if challenged.

Then there is my generation, Generation X. We grew up in the 70's and 80's which again wasn't that bad. School shootings were not seen yet in any kind of huge numbers, childhood was fun, Dad went to work and, eventually so did women, a turning point in American history. Feminism drove women into the workforce. What it didn't do was allow women who DID NOT want work that option. The glut of workers who suddenly entered the workforce diluted the pay scale to levels that have not risen since. Why would employers pay top dollar for someone when they can always find someone to work for less? With millions of new employees, salaries dropped and stayed there. I know this sounds misogynistic, and would never say women should be barefoot and pregnant, but there were consequences to this new idea and the end results have been terrible. When I was eight, my mom went back to work. I spent my days in the library, which wasn't such a bad thing as I was a genius who learned to read at age 2. I read everything I could in the library for the years I spent there, a fact which is why I am so smart today. But I digress. The point of this is, kids started to grow up without any parents, and while I turned out okay, studies show many other didn't. Without supervision, my generation started getting into real trouble as crime spiked, partly in response to this but mostly due to the crack epidemic. We were fools who believed in the American dream, most likely the last. We went to college, got good jobs and thought we would be okay if we kept our heads down and didn't bitch too much. We were such idiots. We all got laid off in the Great Recession of 2009, our 401k's dragged us down even further and then found out there were no good jobs left to get. Almost every single person who has been laid off since 2008, had not found a job any where near what they used to get paid. Worse, there is no end in sight to this pay drought which is literally killing the middle class now. We should have fought back harder against the rising tide of idiocy, but we didn't and that is our greatest failure.

Lastly, there is the Millennials. They are growing up in a huge cloud of poison, radiation, tainted water, and foul air. They are being raised in a culture of death, pornography and other hazards that no generation has ever seen. They have neither a mom or a dad at home because my generation is too busy working fifteen jobs to notice. They are going to go to a college that will guarantee them nothing except a mortgage size debt and no way to pay it off until they long dead. Most will never be able to afford a house, or even a new car at this rate. They are technologically savvy in a way few previous generations are. They are also wholly self absorbed, single minded and have apparently bowed to authority in signs of submission rarely seen in youth. The police state has indoctrinated them to NOT rebel, less they get arrested and any future at that point is destroyed. The problem with this is, soon it won't matter as the rich will have the power and their future will be destroyed regardless. Sometimes you have to rebel, no matter what the costs and today's youth has to get on the ball and start mass protests again, only this time have demands, a leadership and the willingness to get shot if need be. I write this column knowing that sooner or later I may piss off the wrong person or organization and then you will be reading about my "suicide" in the local paper.

However, some Millennials are going about this the right way by suing places to get their way. Now when that uppity bitch from New Jersey sued her parents for not paying for college, that is Generation Wuss in action. The opposite is the suit against Northwestern College to treat their athletes like a union. That is smart and devious and I love it. College athletes should be paid for their time considering the billions of dollars being made and the fact that some of these guys are going hungry without adequate housing says a lot about how slave like some of these guys really are. Another lawsuit is one that intends to end unpaid internships which is great because corporations have turned what should be valuable work experience, into literally using them as unpaid employees, doing things someone making money should be doing. It may not be a mass protest demanding the resignation of the entire Supreme Court (hint, hint) but it's a start. Millennials are our last hope. If they don't stand up and fight against the tyranny that is becoming rampant, then we really will be a oligarchy with no hope, no future, no nothing but slavery. Your choice young people. Choose wisely as the rest of us are depending on you.

Normally I side with the left over the right on many issues, other than gun control. But lately, the left, and the youngest generation in particular, seems to have lost their minds. I mean that quite literally in some cases as there have been numerous attempts at seeing which idiot can get arrested first and serve the longest sentence.

Let us start with the whole Bundy ranch debate, which because it is filled with the usual brand of right wing loons, like Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh and the like, have been automatically branded as more Tea Party nonsense that is just not worth listening too. That is exactly the wrong approach to take though. Just because someone is wrong 90% of the time, doesn't mean they are wrong all the time. This is one of those rare cases when they actually have a story. I know that for every bullshit scandal like the IRS, Obamacare or Benghazi nonsense, there is a genuine story in cases like this, Fast and Furious and Obama's questionable diplomacy skills lately. They just get lost in the white noise of the GOP crazy machine.

There are tons of left wing sites proclaiming that the Bundy Ranch sage is nothing more than Tea Party lunatics that don't want to pay taxes. However, they are failing to see the big picture here. First, the BLM didn't need to go in a guns blazing, attack dogs at the ready, snipers on the hill scenario. Instead, they could do what has always been done in tax disputes which is use the IRS to crush Bundy with tax liens, fines and other ways they have destroyed people in the past. Why the gung ho, military style bravado then? This is a message, pure and simple that mess with the feds and you will be shot. This is why you no longer live in a democracy when the Federal Government is no longer even following their own laws.

The Homestead of Act and the Constitution also provide some cover for the Bundy Ranch, as what this appears to be is nothing more than a blatant land grab by the BLM, something they are doing with increasing frequency. Thirty years ago, the BLM stole 140 acres from a Texas rancher for which he received nothing in return. How is that legal for ANY reason. Word is they are seeking 90,000 more acres for which local ranchers will again get nothing in return. If the government said they were taking your house, giving you nothing for it, and will then give it to some Chinese couple, would you let them? How about if they said you could stay in your house that you own completely, but would have to pay taxes on it double what your neighbor pays just cause? Of course not. But that is what is happening right now with this land and the left is all but cheering for it because Bundy doesn't happen to be a San Francisco hipster.

As for those that stood up the government outside the Bundy ranch, 16 have been arrested for "domestic terrorism" which is terribly ironic as it is the Federal Government acting like thugs and not vice versa and are being held without bail. This is from Before It's News:

"Federal agent Paul Horner, a 14-year veteran of the force, spoke with National Report by phone and had this to say:  “Under direct orders from the FBI and the DOJ, on behalf of the BLM, we have infiltrated the crowd with armed undercover agents.  The agents are collecting intel and coordinating that information with drones that are also overseeing the disturbance.  In addition, we have positively identified approximately 85% of the crowd and are running background checks for previous violations, warrants, etc.  License plate numbers of protesters are being collected and entered into the national database as well.  These right-wing extremists pose a serious threat to the safety of the operation and we have orders to make arrests and confiscate firearms.”

Don Campbell, a participant in the protest stated, ”I haven’t seen anything like it in my life.  The protesters seem to have been minding their business and those agents did not appear to be local guys.”  When asked to describe the victims, Mr. Campbell replied “two of them were middle-aged ladies and one of them appeared to be a teenage boy.  The other three were heavier set middle-aged white men.”  According to Campbell, the officers were taking turns ridiculing the victims and at one point even pepper-sprayed two of the older men before placing them in flex-tie restraints and escorting them to nearby squad cars.  Don referred to the scene as “modern-day fascism” and suggested the officers may have been federal agents sent directly from the Obama Administration in an attempt to silence opposition.

This is the new America where protest is banned, free speech is bought and paid for by the corporations, and your vote doesn't matter anymore.  If you don't believe we live in oligarchy, with all the facts that we do, then the left is no better than the right in lunacy and stupidity as they are selling us out just as fast as the Tea Party.

Speaking of lunatic behavior, Generation Wuss hit an all time low with several instances of the most suicidal behavior I have ever witnessed. Earlier this week, an unnamed teen girl thought it would be HILARIOUS to tweet a bomb threat to American Airlines. Needless to say, someone has been arrested and now faces serious charges. So did that detract from her contemporaries from doing the same thing? Hell no, dozens followed lemming like by tweeting similar threats to various airlines. These threats are taken VERY seriously and people have done real jail time for them in the past, such as the Facebook teen who posted he was going to shoot up a school. He got several years in prison for that. These idiots are looking at the same thing, which means their future is dead as no one with a criminal record for anything anymore can find a job in today's hyper-sensitive culture.

The Grand Poobah of Morons took place this week when an allegedly mentally unstable teen thought it would be a fun idea to dress in a black beekeeper outfit during the Boston Marathon Memorial yesterday, screaming at the top of his lungs before throwing a black back pack into the middle of the street. It is only because Boston police are NOT the trigger happy loons of LA or NYC that this ass is still breathing. Right now he is at the Bridgewater mental institution for the insane where he will probably be for some time.

The point of all of this is is that the left is becoming just as unstable as the right and until we realize that the government is using that against us, to keep us divided, from seeing the truth that we under the thumb of the super rich, nothing will change and we actually get worse. Let us come together and realize that corporations run the show and all the blame on the government is no better than blaming Ronald McDonald for a bad hamburger. The rich run the show. It's time to make that gravy train stop by whatever peaceful means we can. We are running out of time before violence will be our only solution and that will most likely end badly for everyone.

If you were paying attention this week, past all the distractions that seem to pass with greater frequency like spree shootings/stabbings, war drums with some far-off place that few seem to be able to find on a world map, and of course what ever celebrity garbage they can throw at us, some pretty important stuff took place. It was not mentioned on any newscast or reported in any major newspaper, beyond locally. But it proved that not only do you NO longer live in a free society, some of you out there are waking up to that fact and standing up for yourselves. If we could only get Generation Wuss to join in.

Let's start with this tidbit, which will appear in the academic journal Perspectives on Politics this Fall. The study definitively finds out what I have been saying for some time now: The US is no longer a democracy, but an oligarchy, which by definition is hugely corrupt and now no longer governed one wit by you or me. The rich hold all the cards and we don't even have a seat at the table.
Congratulations America, due to your inability to think for yourselves, to let yourself be walked around by people whose interests were not your own, this country is now toast. Mozle Tov.

Here's a quote from it:

“Despite the seemingly strong empirical support in previous studies for theories of majoritarian democracy, our analyses suggest that majorities of the American public actually have little influence over the policies our government adopts. Americans do enjoy many features central to democratic governance, such as regular elections, freedom of speech and association, and a widespread (if still contested) franchise. But, America's claims to being a democratic society are seriously threatened” by the findings in this, the first-ever comprehensive scientific study of the subject, which shows that there is instead “the nearly total failure of ‘median voter’ and other Majoritarian Electoral Democracy theories [of America]. When the preferences of economic elites and the stands of organized interest groups are controlled for, the preferences of the average American appear to have only a minuscule, near-zero, statistically non-significant impact upon public policy.”

The authors go on to say their data is almost certainly under-representative of how much power the rich and corporations actually have, which is not a good thing at all. In other words, no matter how bad you think things are, they are actually much, much worse. We are now officially no better than Russia or China. Our elections are shams and the government is under complete control by the rich. Want proof?

The BLM standoff has fizzled for the moment, thanks to brave men and women who put their lives on the line for what is right. There needs to be more people like that and less of the OWS crowd that decided protesting wasn't worth their time and have retreated to snarky comments on left wing websites which did not fare well over this whole scenario. The BLM has vowed to continue, but they will wait until things die down for a round 2. I suspect, next time though, there may be even more people trying their best to stop this. This is how civil wars start and word in the military is that this kind of stuff will not fly with them. However, with private armies available, like Blackwater, US troops may get marginalized by paid for storm troopers. If that sounds out there, understand that every day, the government, and thus corporations, are getting more and more power. At some point, they are going to come down like a hammer on us, for security reasons or for the children, or some equally outlandish bullshit, then people like you and me will disappear into some black prison never to be seen again.

It's already happening right now. Private prisons are buying up politicians, like Arizona state rep John Kavanagh, who recently added $900,000 to the state budget for a private prison just cause the $45 million they are already getting wasn't enough. Arizona is one of four states, them plus VA, OK and LA, to guarantee 95-100% occupancy rates. How do guarantee filling up a prison you ask? Put people in there who don't belong. The poor, the mentally challenged and of course, drug users.

Also innocent people are going to jail more and more often. One such woman of IL, Angela Kirkland found herself in trouble when she had the audacity to shop a store that sold, wait for it, gardening supplies. The DEA saw her leave with a small bag of goods for her garden, decided it was for drugs, staked her out, found "drug" material in her garbage, and said her electrical bill was "too high" so they raided her place in full SWAT attire at 5 am only to find nothing more than a few grams of pot and no grow room. Oops. Another man got the same treatment because a "lack of drug evidence" found in his garbage was evidence of him hiding his drug grow clippings. REALLY? Yet both of these people went through the ringer for no reason and a blatant disregard for the Constitution.

In Dallas, the cops are saying filming police is a major safety hazard, as we all know that police are always on their best behavior at all times, filmed or not. Oh wait, they are cracking skulls and asking questions later. Nevermind the fact the Supreme Court ruled in 2012 that filming police is fine, these assholes know better. Tape is the only thing getting justice and the fact the boys in blue whine about it makes me want to puke. Albuquerque residents are demanding the resignation of the mayor and chief of police after the DOJ said the local police were indeed executing people, so some departments are getting a wake up call.

The long and the short of this is that our government is no longer our own, It something that has been planned from before most of us were ever born and has now come to fruition. It has it's hands in everything from the deaths of JFK, RFK, and MLK, the Gulf of Tonkin, Waco, OKC, and 9/11 to name just a few. They have all the power because we let them take it. And chances are, no matter what we do, fight, not fight, the end result is going to be very, very ugly. Most revolutions happen far too late to fight off the inevitable. I fear we have waited WAY too long to say anything. There is no right vs. left, no black vs. white anymore. It's the super rich versus the rest of us. Wake up people. The house is burning and chances are good we are all about to become super crispy.
