RESULTS... remember?


So Senators Dodd and Dorgan are retiring. Good for the Democrats… OUT with the old, IN with the new. At least the Democrats embrace CHANGE. The Republicans are stuck on those same old, crusty  curmudgeons and wealthy, silver spoon aristocrats who have NO IDEA what the average American is struggling through. 

If one thing is true it’s that Americans NEED a change from these long time Congressional members. As far as RESULTS go the US government of the last 25-30 years has oversaw the most STUNNING failure in the history of Mankind.

These Representatives of the PEOPLE violated their sworn oaths and became no better than high class PoliticHo’s for multi-national corporate entities. They took the world’s shinning star of Democracy and turned it into a corporate owned fascist state BURIED IN DEBT!

The Constitution was LOST in a sewer of waste, fraud, abuse, incompetence, scandal, corruption, media consolidation, reckless economics and an ORGY of war profiteering. A Corporate Crime Wave of epic proportions turned both Republicans and Democrats into the United Suckers of America.

12/1/2000 - Leaked CIA document Case# F-2001-00009:
International Crime Threat Assessment” defines “Kleptocracy,
…rather than serve PUBLIC INTEREST, top leaders use nations resources solely to enrich themselves and their cronies. To cover up crimes the stage is set for social and political upheavals
…”

Sound familiar America? The CIA will never admit they included USA “top leaders” in that report. I say anyone with half a brain already realizes something is just NOT RIGHT! One news story after another about  the LOW GRADE THOUGHT PROCESSES of our top leaders.

Am I mistaken, isn’t the job of our top leaders to protect the PEOPLE from “upheavals”? The problem here is our 4th Estate failed us completely and NOT ENOUGH American PEOPLE had the COURAGE to DEMAND ACCOUNTABILITY from those in power. Elected officials and public sector officers in general get away with the same things those of us in the private sector would be fired and prosecuted for. There’s NO incentive to be VIRTUOUS.

Not only top leaders in government but also those from the business world that have INFLUENCE over America’s future. I think this phenomenon was best described by Benito Mussolini:
“… fascism might more appropriately be called Corporatism because it is a merger of State and corporate power…”

And we all know how badly THAT turned out THEN and what the consequences are of history repeating itself NOW!  The Supreme Court and tilted legislation deemed that Corporations had the same rights as the American PEOPLE was the biggest con ever perpetrated…(and Limited Liability, lol) Except the 1976 Supreme Court decision Buckley v. Valeo.

So when attorney Ted Olsen argues that corporations are people, SCREAM back at him... "BRING BACK THE TILLMAN ACT" (so the corporations can't purchase politicians or PoliticHo's) lol

THE TIME IS NOW!
I’d SAY it’s time to MOVE ON and give the new guys a chance. How come the Progressives NEVER get their ideas put to action? Why all the diversions, roadblocks AND… What kind of FOOLS believe Capitalism can survive without ETHICS, RESPONSIBILITY, ACCOUNTABILITY?

Is this shitty-ass, old timey, corrupt, fraud ridden, elitist Status Quo really WORTH preserving? That’s the question I’d be asking of police departments and National Guard Units across the USA. It’s time the American PEOPLE rise up and take back their power.

If our economy is failing it’s because of low grade thought processes involved with the long range fiscal planning of the Republican Party since 1980... THAT NOT ONE OF THEM WILL TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR NOW! But what really makes me angry is that the Democrats OR the mainstream media didn’t have the COURAGE to take a stand against the MADNESS!

Republicans believe Corporations have a right to do as they please. Most card carrying conservatives are so ignorant they don’t even know their own ideological CREDO. “Limited intervention in the economy. Substantial intervention in morality”. This means let the RICH/POWERFUL do whatever they please while finger pointing and preaching to the average Joe and Jane Schmuck.

Reagan/Bush killed ANTI-TRUST and any regulation that kept industry HONEST. When Reagan/Bush came to power, the USA was #1 on the planet in exporting goods and importing raw materials. This is the very definition of a prosperous economy. In 2010, it’s the exact opposite. Why? Years of Republicans selling out the American middle class, that’s why. Oh and let’s not forget Reagan union busting and DEREGULATION. The root of ALL future Corporate scandal.

A long list of legislation starting with “fiscal conservatism” and “trickle down economicsled to the decline in federal aid to local governments from $64 per resident in 1980 to $29 in 1992. In 2010 take a look at how many local governments are IN THE RED!

To REPLACE the lost funding, a mandate was passed down for LAW ENFORCEMENT and Criminal Justice (sic) System to generate revenue for itself, State and local governments. Fines, penalties, code enforcement, searches, seizures, tow charges, storage fees, bail bonds, court costs, etc… the LAW was turned into a business empire. PROFIT margins created a government VS. the PEOPLE mentality.

NOTE: (Sunday, April 16, 2000 Press-Enterprise B-1 article titled “San Bernardino County leads nation in forfeitures” WHAT? Joseph D. Mcnamara, a research fellow at Stanford University and former police chief in San Jose, said: “I think in general it’s a BAD MISTAKE to have the police interested in anything other than the pursuit of justice

Add the special interest pandering which further separated the PEOPLE from “LIFE, LIBERTY, HAPPINESS, EQUAL RIGHTS and JUSTICE”. As a mater of fact JUSTICE became a commodity bought and sold by the wealthy, powerful and well-connected.

Robert Ito in Los Angeles Magazine writes: “…YES, the $40 BILLION dollar private prison business is recession proof. The Corrections Corporation of America controlled 52% of the domestic market. Net income grew 75% in 1997, it’s stock doubled…”

NOTE: (YEA! Ask Bob Barker about investing in the jail/prison industry. Bob Barker plastic soap dishes, jail shoes… and how can one strip down, bend over and COUGH without thinking of Bob Barker latex examination gloves?)
lol

Then we go to the 90’s with Phil Gramm/Newt Gingrich/Tom Delay/John McCain/etc… Republican’s busy selling out the American middle class. I wanted to ask the Grich about all the hidden legislation such as the “Expatriate Clause” in Clinton’s Family Leave bill. It allowed the super rich (multinational Corporations, Saudi royals, drug trafficers, etc) take their billions out of the country PENALTY FREE!

While President Clinton and the American PEOPLE were MISDIRECTED by the media, fake Christian morality and the famous Monica Lewinski blowjobs… Newt oversaw legislation/policy that paved the way for outsourcing of American jobs, off-shore accounts scandal, media consolidation, predatory lending and the “Corporate Crime Wave” (Enron, etc.) 

While Republicans were waving the American flag and professing love of our great nation, behind the scenes they were busy selling out our children’s future. Explain to me please Newt, what good can come from insuring the venture capital of Corporations that move American jobs to Communist China?

And what were the TOP OFFICIALS doing while all the so-called representatives of the PEOPLE were breaking their sworn oaths and ignoring the SIGNS from a turbulent Middle East? ...Well, they were hanging out in the “Halls of Congress” with Larry Craig, Mark Foley and Ken Starr MASTURBATING to Monica Lewinski testimony

Then the biggest insult to the American Constitution conservatives could possibly come up with… these pathetic morons elect George W. Bush (not once BUT TWICE) and there is the death blow to the US economy.

What kind of FOOL took pleasure in Bush bragging about his TAX CUTS? What you idiots don’t realize is he’s had to borrow TRILLIONS of dollars from foreign entities to pay for his WAR in Iraq. 12 billion dollars a week going to the Iraqi money pit, arms dealers and war profiteers. AND OUR CHILDREN AND GRAND-CHILDREN WILL GET STUCK WITH THE BILL! How’s that for fiscal irresponsibility?

The really scary thing is that many right-wing extremist hawks/war profiteers in our Intelligence Community are suspected of trying to sabotage the Obama/Biden Administration. As far as RESULTS go… the ONLY thing the American PEOPLE got for all those BILLIONS of Homeland Security dollars were those idiotic color coded terror alerts.

Seems to me Americans are STILL plagued by the same intelligence sharing problems Homeland Security was supposed to remedy. Seems to me YEARS after 9/11/01 it’s the airline passengers that are the REAL frontline in any WAR on Terrorism. (why the fuck do we need YOU overpaid bureaucrats? Civil Servants my skinny Italian A,merican ASS... just who the fuck is serving WHO?)

Progressives NEED to ORGANIZE… NOW… for the next few elections. AND the best way to power is not a 3rd party strategy but to WORK within the Democratic Party. Progressive Democrats have NEVER had a better chance to do a hostile takeover of both the Democratic Party and the US Congress. Only IF we can ENERGIZE the same Concerned Citizens who volunteered so much time and contributed to a Obama/Biden, Democratic Party win in 2008...

THEN we can put our agendas into actions. After all, the alternative scenario of Republicans taking over the Congress is too terrible to think about…  RESULTS remember?

"What a sad, SAD political age in which we live… REALLY, certifiably INSANE! Let me give you an example. Michael Steel… WHAT the fuck is THAT? He’s the Republican Party’s ANSWER to the first Black President. “…honest injun”.  It’s like Conservatives found some low level white bureaucrat and had him colored a pleasing shade of Negro…

After 8 years of the George W. Bush Administration, no matter WHO was head of the Republican Party… they were doomed!  It’s a joke anyway, so the Republicans decided to put out this token Obama, this in-the-heesi Sambo, this Rochester from MARYland,  this glee club Uncle Tom kissing up to the slave master…

(OK, maybe I went too far) BUT!

Most Black Men I know are pretty firm in their belief system but Steel seems to be some made up character like Pinocchio.  This man has changed his position so many times I’m sure his STRINGS are all tangled up…   

The Republican Party has gotten SO PITIFUL... I almost feel sorry for the poor corrupt bastards. If only the American PEOPLE had the guts and will to make sure these evil beings NEVER take over our government again! If Democrats, 3rd Party, Progressives and Liberals all got together WE COULD HAMMER DOWN THAT FINAL NAIL in the Republican/Conservative coffin. I swear to GOD, if these scandalous right-wing wackos take back Congress… WELL…  I’m turning revolutionary…  "

We don’t need to profile!

We don’t need to profile. At the Center for Aggression Management, we use easily-applied, measurable and culturally-neutral body language and behavior exhibited by people who intend to perpetrate a terrorist act. This unique methodology utilizes proven research from the fields of psychology, medicine and law enforcement which, when joined together, identify clear, easily-used physiologically-based characteristics of individuals who are about to engage in terrorist activities in time to prevent their Moment of Commitment.

Since the foiled terrorist attack by Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the Nigerian national on Northwest Flight 253 to Detroit, the President has repeatedly stated that there has been a systemic failure as he reiterates his commitment to fill this gap in our security. This incident, like the Fort Hood shooting, exemplifies why our government must apply every valid preventative approach to identify a potential terrorist.

The myriad methods to identify a terrorist, whether “no-fly list,” “explosive and weapons detection,” mental illness based approaches, “profiling” or “deception detection” - all continue to fail us. Furthermore, the development of deception detection training at Boston Logan Airport demonstrated that the Israeli methods of interrogation will not work in the United States.

All media outlets are discussing the need for profiling of Muslim Arabs, but profiling does not work for the following three reasons:

1. In practice, ethnic profiling tells us that within a certain group of people there is a higher probability for a terrorist; it does not tell us who the next terrorist is!

2. Ethnic profiling is contrary to the value our society places on diversity and freedom from discrimination based on racial, ethnic, religious, age and/or gender based criteria. If we use profiling it will diminish our position among the majority of affected citizens who support us as a beacon of freedom and liberty.

3. By narrowing our field of vision, profiling can lead to the consequence of letting terrorists go undetected, because the terrorist may not be part of any known “profile worthy” group – e.g., the Oklahoma City bomber, Timothy McVeigh

Our unique methodology for screening passengers can easily discern (independently of race, ethnicity, religious affiliation, age, and gender) the defining characteristics of human beings who are about to engage in terrorist acts.

The question is when will our government use true “hostile intent” through the “continuum of aggressive behavior” to identify potential terrorists? Only when observers focus specifically on “aggressive behavior” do the objective and culturally neutral signs of “aggression” clearly stand out, providing the opportunity to prevent these violent encounters. This method will not only make all citizens safer, but will also pass the inevitable test of legal defensibility given probable action by the ACLU.

As our Government analyzes what went wrong regarding Abdulmatallab’s entrance into the United States, you can be assured that Al Qaeda is also analyzing how their plans went wrong. Who do you think will figure it out first . . . ?
