Radiation Enema

It's Bad News when the nuclear energy industry builds near your home.

PR on job creation & economic benefit is garbage. Visit Fukushima and judge for yourself - hurriedly evacuated dead zone, a leaky poisoned waterfront: a running gash of failed technology polluting mobile marine life and all the ocean.

Regardless of nuclear reactor safety, the commercial nuclear industry irresponsibly continues to store their nuclear waste in close proximity to their nuclear furnaces. Now the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission has decreed that even in cases of nuclear reactor shutdown, local-based nuclear waste dumps can continue same-site for 160 years. Unbelievable.

Industry calls this radioactive waste "spent fuel" - but it's deadly poison for centuries. There is no federal repository for these poisons; there's no consensus on providing truly safe systems. Anyone should know to keep a volatile dump far away from the generating furnaces, and keep it all far away from the seaside, far from public water systems, and far from population centers to minimize airborne pollution dangers. These basic points are typically ignored.

Profit-seeking corporations are a disastrous management formula, and cannot guarantee safety.

People in nuclear neighborhoods and districts either live in great fear, or they live in denial. The businessmen running the nuclear plants can simply declare corporate insolvency and skulk away (the executives don't live nearby)...

Renegotiated Union

What will happen when USA states begin seriously considering costs & benefits of union? Many local regions might do a better job with education, criminality, health care, immigration, defense, economics, etc. than Congress can capably provide, even when not deadlocked. Is the only choice to accept US Federal mandates?

Might states, regions, or sub-regions renegotiate their membership in the federal union?

The Federal budget is unaffordable.

The US central government gave private industry insiders huge monies via the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008. Not all lawmakers supported those "bailouts" + subsidies. The economy still has not recovered (not surprising - those who caused the crisis kept their jobs through the bailout).

Obama's government has done little to change a foul rot in Washington. Global empire bankrupted and targeted America.

There are dozens (or hundreds, or millions) of reasons people might wish to renegotiate the US federal union. Best consider arguments now for a revised USA. California may divide into six states (ballot initiative upcoming). Others seek to secede completely from the USA (see link to petitions throughout the nation). No doubt our overweight nation needs better care - many stars now shine dimly, or are partly obscured.

Geronimo Bin Laden

Geronimo, Pocahontas, Che Guevara, Malcolm X, Bin Laden ...
America's vanquished enemies.

Resist US military occupation, prepare to be hunted & killed. Our righteous leaders repeat the warning again & again & again.

But our military has no proper business in far-flung places. Shut-down the colonial outposts which cost too much money & blood. Build society on sustainable, humane & progressive domestic foundations. Bring our troops home !

White House Deception

We're often deliberately fed half-truths and lies to deceive us. Remember the dramatic White House photo used to illustrate the killing of Bin Laden?


Pete Souza's photo remains incorrectly labeled (in Aug. 2014), after being reproduced dramatically around the world & criticized as posed. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton looks especially tense, providing the "emotionally resonant punctum" (New York Times). Some of the flim-flam later unraveled. (Clinton claimed she was stifling an allergic cough). We may never know what all are actually watching...

What can we believe? Not much. A struggling American journalist is cruelly murdered in Syria? Does it justify the USA beginning a new war in Iraq? Did militarist spinmeisters believe a dramatic event would grease their operations? Ongoing contact with the captors now report (link) the murderers sought ransom money. And a failed rescue attempted last month killed people near where the captives had been held. Who could ever imagine what such crazies would do if double-dared & insulted: "You don't dare kill an American! Fucking pansies! Candy-ass camel jockeys!"  Ooops - say our militarists.
Who profits now?

Not Good Neigh

Who's now in prison for the European adulterated horsemeat scandal uncovered early 2013?  (link) How many millions of euro in fines have been paid?

Surely not enough was done as penalty. Spanghero? Findus? ICA? The "own label" producers traded trust for quick profits & should be fined heavily. They're more than ignorant retailers - with their logo and name on the box they share guilt. Super cheap raw materials - too good to be true - discarded veterinary critters? Stray dogs & cats? Food suppliers can't be trusted!

Of course, if the now-secret Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership, TTIP is implemented, such adulterated European meats will also flow to America; we in Europe will be exposed when the US food supply becomes tainted through mislabeling or fraud. American food fraud is huge: seafood, honey and cooking oils are often (or reportedly more often than not) deliberately adulterated or mislabeled. Efforts to publicize food scams, such as via a "Food Fraud Database" - don't yet deliver easily understandable information. The US Food & Drug Administration, FDA operates with minimal budget to protect consumer food supplies, but some products (beef, chicken, eggs, etc.) are policed by the US Department of Agriculture, USDA. We're lucky if fraud's uncovered - the regulating & inspection agencies are grossly understaffed.

Part of the deterrent is to publicize the crime, consequences and penalties.

Dutch wholesaler Willy Selten may have sold as much as 50,000 tons of adulterated meat (link). Spanghero changed its name to "La Lauragaise" and reportedly is back in business. Other adulteration schemes no doubt operate now. This huge scam was more than a bit of bother. Without penalties? All quickly forgotten by consumer sheeple...
Must we eat shit or worse...   Mortuary meats?

Hillary's Hard Choice?

Hillary Clinton had one key "Hard Choice" - give up her Presidency efforts, or continue kissing the fat ass of Israeli politician Benjamin Netanyahu.

Mrs. Clinton proved she'll overlook troublesome details - systematic human rights abuses by the Israeli IDF, ethnic cleansing & genocide of the Palestinians are nothing compared to her personal quest. Hillary now works for the future of expansionary Zionism. She abandoned her own nation's interests for 30 silver shekels and a few fundraising dinners...

We are the Death Squad folk.

Far too many corrupt governments owe their existence to right-wing extremists from the USA. The assholes who rule over us.

People fought their own government for freedom, getting rid of dictatorship only at great human cost. But the poisonous spider of militarism lived on in the USA.

Kissinger instructs his Argentine puppet Videla
Chilean dictator Pinochet and his Naziesque henchmen
Far too often weasels from the USA install repressive authoritarian regimes. Doomed to fail, they cause death & destruction. Militarism enslaves. But slaves fight back against repressive opportunists & oppressors.

Gaza Goals

Israeli government goals in the present Gaza violence are simple: making Gaza uninhabitable for Israel's enemies.

Unfortunately the government of PM Benjamin Netanyahu sees all non-Israelis (and his substantial Israeli opposition) as enemies.

Netanyahu and malformed sidekick Avigdor Lieberman are right-wing zealots trying to make Gaza uninhabitable. The people of Gaza who survive this punishment should wish to go away. Gaza will be a beachfront awarded to Israeli settlers.

God-Given Goal in Gaza = Ethnic Cleansing .
