Involve joy.

Commie Terror

The American people are being hoodwinked again with scare stories.

Remember the scare & horror of Communism - it was a word so terrible we'd spend any sum, and give up our lives to its eradication.

Now the Soviet system is gone, and we're in bed with Chinese Communists.

So the militarists & security specialists preach we must beware of Terrorism.

Detailed reasons & analyses of danger are kept secret by our national security services. They say the taxpaying public is untrustworthy, but our militant anti-terror services profit from new employment prospects while keeping oversight minimal. Fool citizenry can say little - we know nothing.

Government security services use private "partner" subcontractors for surveillance, analysis, and operations. We must trust (dumbly) that these companies appropriately manage valuable data among affiliates and associated firms. We must hope (faithfully) our confidential details are not shopped to other ventures. But specialists move between government and industry, domestic & foreign. Neither our data or we ourselves can be kept safe.

Who benefits? Those getting jobs profit. And the shareholders of insider firms get boosted corporate dividends. "Friends" in government service get payback later in the form of cushy big bonus private-sector jobs .

Is the United States truly under threat of survival? No.

Militant assholes might butcher a few of us. But they'll never capture our flag by such attacks. Our weakness is subversion from weasels inside the secret government.

We lost 3000 people on 9/11. In subsequent deluded invasions we lost many times that number. Our leaders are incompetent. Our leaders are murderers. These people left an evil legacy. We know of the CIA Phoenix Program (Phụng Hoàng) and Operation Condor - such crimes are little discussed because they are unforgivable.

We can't afford to spend huge sums in overseas adventurism. We need schools & transport & jobs close to home.

The security services are bleeding us dry; they gain from our discomfort.

Secrecy Strategy USA

The government of the USA is admittedly spying on its people. The people can't be trusted to know about it.

Why not enlist people in their own defense? Instead all are considered criminal by government.
This is poor strategy.

How can it make sense?

Sebastien de la Cruz

An 11-year old American kid is in the news for singing the national anthem before an NBA game (basketball finals in San Antonio, Texas, USA). Sebastien de la Cruz sang very well, but attracted huge comment for being an illegal alien or "wetback" -- though born & raised in Texas. 

Ignorant basketball fans around America criticized the kid, his family, Mexico, and those who allowed such a kid to sing. Some of the commentators seemed to feel their cherished anthem (which, by the way, glorifies bombs, rockets, fighting & conquest) was soiled.

Racism and hurtfulness are easy to find in America. Less easy to find are those who know the words to the Star Spangled Banner. Jeering from the sidelines is easy. It'd be educational to suddenly film these hypercritical assholes asked to sing their national anthem - in most cases you'd hear silence.

Differences in Americans are her strength. Unity through Diversity.

Prism & Watergate

The President of the United States claims to be acting in secret for our best interests. U.S. Pres. Richard M. Nixon claimed the same -- till resigning in disgrace.

These politicians are a nest of scum who cannot be trusted. Politicians use our blood & money to make their fortune. They're also belligerent & vindictive against enemies - real and imagined. Next political party convention, open your house for politicos to use; you'll get back an abused shell, a home destroyed.

The political leadership in the USA now targets & kills Americans without trial or judicial oversight. Crazy. As government secrets include murder, accountability will be involuntary.

Senior politicians demand respect. Many highly partisan politicians do little or nothing. Some are deeply corrupt and deserve prison. Sadly, they grab weapons to require our respect- we're wary of dangerous critters.

Sure, a few public servants are less bad than the others, but certainly an opportunistic weasel politician is just around the corner with a big smile & shoddy insider scheme.

With good reason the nation was founded on the rule of law & transparency.

Officials now ignore the U.S. Constitution; they've stopped serving the people.

Dark secrets serves the devil, not the people.

Guvment Inc.

The U.S. Government blatantly favors insider corporations. The neutrality of government is violated by corporate criminals enjoying public funded gifts, grants and low-interest bailout loans. Almost all such firms employed the people's traitors prior to their entering government "service" -- and they offer key officials post-government jobs. It's just business - corrupt business...

Cheney's Old Heart

What happened to Dick Cheney's rotten old heart?

Was it put into President Obama?

Skynet says "=!*@%  you ! "

Who's Behind Government Spying?

Americans and the rest of the world are waking up to the fact that wholesale monitoring of the citizenry is established, pervasive, and perverse.

The tricky point is not the grey unaccountable bureaucrat. Such information is funneled through assorted private contractors, "specialists" who'd like to earn more money. Our information is exposed. Bluntly, bureaucrats can't protect squat. Even if they try.

Sure, there may be a prosecution, or a few terminations, but the population slowly understands : to give huge powers to even well-meant leaders is stupid. These leaders are not independent - many are political puppets, some are sadly opportunistic scum. Least-cost contracts? Overpaying to insiders?... Yo info is fo sale...

Which side is ours?

In today's BBC business news:   (link)
"The International Trade Commission (ITC) ruled that Apple infringed on a Samsung patent, which could mean some older models of the iPad and iPhone are banned from sale in the US. The patent relates to 3G wireless technology and the ability to transmit multiple services correctly and at the same time.
Apple said it plans to appeal. The ruling could also be reversed by a US presidential order within 60 days."

What an odd bit of phrase: "...could also be reversed by a US presidential order within 60 days."

Why might that happen? Why tell us this? We're now prepared for what might seem corrupt. 

Inside words:  The fix is in.

Is this America vs. Korea? No.
Apple Inc.has most of its production abroad, and "owes" large amounts to offshore entities (thus neatly avoiding much American taxation) - Apple's core is foreign... as American as apple barley pudding.

This week (link) US Senator Carl Levin, Chairman of the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, cut heartlessly into Apple Inc.:   "Apple’s products are justifiably well known and used throughout the world. What may not be so well known is that Apple also has a highly developed tax avoidance system – a system through which it has amassed more than $100 billion in offshore cash in a tax haven. ... Apple Inc. has created three offshore corporations, entities that receive tens of billions of dollars in income but which have no tax residence - not in Ireland, where they are incorporated, and not in the United States, where the Apple executives who run them are located. Apple has arranged matters so it can claim that these ghost companies, for tax purposes, exist nowhere. One company has paid no corporate income tax to any nation for the past five years; another pays tax to Ireland equivalent to a fraction of one percent of its total income... The offshore tax avoidance tactics ... offload Apple’s tax burden onto other taxpayers – in particular, onto working families and small businesses."

In other words, Apple vs. Samsung -- Foreign Firms Fight for Funds

America's Story

"When arrogance meets access."

Criminality and butchery are on trial in the U.S. state of Maryland. Sadly, we only witness a vast criminal conspiracy falling on a former servant.

In the case of Bradley Manning, arrogance is on trial... Militarism is on trial. Manning's case also threatens the lapdog corporate media, which does far too little to root-out corruption and murderous dishonesty by the powerful.

Why has the USA waged aggressive wars in Iraq and Afghanistan? Military operations by the USA undoubtedly killed & maimed innocent people by the tens of thousands, including thousands of Americans. Led by dishonest politicians and scheming political appointees, a corps of militant goons continues to stomp on justice & human rights with impunity. Duplicity, callous disregard for human life, and murder are proved by the government materials (films & documents) allegedly leaked by Manning. People sworn to protect & defend the Constitution of the United States are simply fraudulent criminals cloaked in lies.

"When arrogance meets access..." is the sound-bite reported widely around the world. Surely the US military prosecutor's catchy phrase wasn't meant as ironic. But the bottom line -- the U.S. government is criminally arrogant to the rest of the world.

Until America's people pay proper attention, "Arrogant" could label most mirrors around the country.

Liberty Looted

Liberty Reserve's banking system was brazenly attacked this week.

I've no money in the Liberty Reserve system. I don't know much about them. But it's now clear the forces of good and "justice" are themselves corrupt.

Can we expect anything else? The 'haves' protect themselves.

I've no doubt crooked people may be involved with Liberty Reserve. But many or most depositors & workers were normal people.

Justice officials did not close NASDAQ when former NASDAQ Chairman Bernard L. Madoff was arrested for Securities fraud; Investment advisor fraud; Mail fraud; Wire fraud; Money laundering; False statements; Perjury; Making false filings with the SEC; (and) Theft from an employee benefit plan.

HSBC, one of the establishment's biggest banks (largest bank in Britain) was deeply involved in money laundering, and last December was allowed to pay the US Department of Justice $1.9 billion in fines. Big penalty, but no criminal charges, and rather quietly handled. "HSBC expressed its regret" and "top executives will defer part of their bonuses" (link) -- Meanwhile, Liberty Reserve is dismembered, its executives arrested, and depositor funds frozen. Monies are now in serious danger of being lost or stolen in the huge mess.

The case is a huge gift to the large established banks. Putting your money with smaller startups risks confiscation or prosecution. We're buggered again by big capital.
