The present condition of life of theDSC_5385 poor and the rich in the US has proven that democracy and capitalism do not work. On the other hand, capitalism and apartheid work very well.

Democracy – government by the people, direct or representative – America does not have this.Options-Decisions-Choices

Capitalism – private wealth and profit-making, super-rich, 1%, oppression and exploitation – America has this.

Apartheid – racial segregation, white oppression and exploitation – America has this.

IMG_1234Whatever the founding fathers of America meant or hoped for in 1776 is not what we have in 2015.

Our schools, health care, prisons, infrastructure, institutions are private and managed by the for-profit capitalist system.

IMG_2682Our manufacturing jobs are sent overseas to increase profits for capitalists.

Our country is divided along racial colour lines.

White rules. All others get out or beg.

Our intellectuals are disillusioned and our universities are silent.

H13-22 NecrosisOur media is a propaganda machine and owned by the 1%.

Our military is not here to protect our homeland, our borders, but to conquer the world while we live in fear and beg for food and medicine.

Our most important industry is selling guns and drones to anyone in America or globally who has a $.

If this is democracy, what is apartheid?

The story of Panama is an admirable one.DSC03525-B

A visitor to Panama is quite impressed with the visible signs of prosperity. Panama City boasts sky-scrapers, luxury condos, seventy banks, malls peddling designer clothes and accessories, and new construction everywhere.

AgreementIn 1999 the Americans returned the Panama Canal to Panama and the Canal brings in an annual income of at least 4 billion dollar which is great for the local economy.

Like any other country in the world (including the US) the leaders and politicians in Panama are crooks, thieves and corrupt. They steal as much as they can and then face prison or exile.

On the other hand, a visitor driving around Panama is quite shocked, when without warning, she stumbles into Colon. Colon is the slum of all slums.help

At ten o’clock on a Monday morning children in need or a bath and clean clothes are playing in the streets instead of being in school. Men are sitting on the side-walks and in the parks playing cards or entertaining themselves instead of being at work.

They live in shacks boarded up with bits and pieces of cardboard, zinc sheets or plywood. IMG_2682They have no money for water and electricity, so the government allows them to “steal” these necessities. The illegal water pipes and electric wires are visible from the streets for anyone to see. How and where they get food is anyone’s guess? Clothes? Health care?

These are the two Panamas. Visitors are usually driven around Colon, not through Colon.IMG_0318 For example, on the Atlantic side of Panama, steamship passengers are driven around Colon but not through the slums of Colon.

The residents of this slum in Panama are BLACK.

Next – the reason this slum exist!

Here is a “crisis” in education that gets very IMG_1234little media or administrative attention because teachers are non-entities who provide fodder for the teacher bashing tongues.

Teachers are abused by politicians, administrators, parents and students among others. During the day, school buildings are like day-jails for teachers. BreaktimeThey arrive in the morning and any administrator, parent or student can dish out the torment.

Politicians first: On the way to work, any teacher brave enough to listen to the news or read the newspapers will find the governor evaluating them and other elected officials berating , chastising them for the low standard of American education. Every ill, every wrong in education is the teachers’ fault. These half-wit, ignorant politicians who can’t teach a class to save their lives, who presume to write failing education policies and develop unrealistic standards with Pearson’s help turn around and blame teachers. Go get a life politicians and let teachers write policy and develop standards.

desksAdministrators abuse teachers. When they like teachers, those teachers can do no wrong. Tenure is assured; they become master teachers, highly effective ratings, and funds to match their superlative skills. When administrators hate teachers, God help them and tenure is their paycheck. Grade fixing – highly prevalent in schools – is also abuse. When teachers refuse to pass 95% of students with grades in the 85-99 percentiles, they are bad teachers.

mindParents want their kids to pass with high grades, but take no responsibility for their attendance, homework, or sleeping in class. However, they have no problems showing up in school, insulting the teacher and blaming her for the child’s failure. A brief meeting between the parent and the AP would result in a passing / higher grade for ignorant little Andy.

sZVNBOmcStudents abuse teachers daily. They steal teachers’ stuff. They mock and curse teachers. They cheat on tests. Students have “deans” in schools to protect them and parents at home to defend them. They are taught at an early age not to take responsibility for their education and by extension their future. They learn the blame game early in life.

Teacher abuse is real. It is in the governor’s office; it is in every politician’s office; school administrators have given teacher abuse an art form; and parents and students know how to play the grade fixing games.balloon-boy

Who can remember a favorite governor, or a favorite doctor, or a favorite police officer, or a favorite school administrator? But almost everyone can remember a favorite teacher!

 

 

“No poor, rural, weak, or black flagperson should ever again have to bear the additional burden of being deprived of the opportunity for an education, a job, or simple justice.”                                    President Carter    

 

The year was 2009. The school was (is still) in Queens. The student body was 98% black kids.literature “This school could have been anywhere in the segregated south of the USA in the year 1954* or better still in Nigeria.”**

Mr. Governor, have you heard of Missionary schools in Africa? The white missionaries devoting their lives to enlightening, educating, emancipating the African kids of years ago?

Well, Mr. Governor, we have one right here in NYC / NYS. Some one collected approximately 3,000 black teenagers and put them classroomin this building and the missionaries are bending backwards to educate them.

Talk about racism and segregation! This is the real deal. All over this country politicians are condemning segregation, racism, hate, prejudice, discrimination; the church and civic leaders are marching their souls and soles out against these “WORDS” and trying to find equality and integration. Nothing changes!

Well, look no further. Why don’t you integrate some white kids into this black school? How about a charter school for these black kids? Mr. Governor, you have a lot of work to do. “Why in the heart of multi-cultural, multi-ethnic New York City is a school filled with all black kids?”** [I wrote to many people about this segregated school including the congressman, but no one replied.]mathematics

These kids are rotting away in this school (gang land, drug den) and no one seems to care.

“They need to get into the competition if they want to win the game.”**

Mr. Governor, I have the solution, you have the power to do the work. Start educating these kids and stop building private prisons for them.

Malcolm X said, “If you’re born in America with a black skin, you’re born in prison.”

Prove him wrong, Mr. Governor!  DSCN7910      

*Earl Warren: To separate [black children] from others of similar age and qualifications solely because of their race generates a feeling of inferiority as to their status in the community that may affect their hearts and minds in a way unlikely ever to be undone…. We consider that in the field of public education the doctrine of “separate but equal” has no place. Separate educational facilities are inherently unequal.

**Quotes taken from The Other Side of Teaching

 

 

In his inaugural address on January 20, 2009, President Barak Hussein Obama promised to improve Crossman co2 air pistolrelations with the Muslim World. Six years later the president has shown Muslims what cheap words and empty promises look like.

Six years later Muslims are still waiting.

 President Obama said, “To the Muslim world, f16_fighting_falconwe seek a new way forward, based on mutual interest and mutual respect.” Around the world Muslims hailed the new president as peace maker, printedT-shirts with his face on them, and the pen used to write this essay is from Kenya and it is labeled “Obama Smoothline”.

 The President does have a lot of smooth lines.IMG_0318

 President Obama has forgotten his cheap words and empty promises as the past six years have proven. Instead the president and American weapons have killed more Muslims than any other president, leader and country in history.

 President Obama’s personal “war on terrorism” means killing Muslims – old men, sick women, defenseless children – anywhere, anytime, IMG_7839weather they have committed a crime or not, without trial, guilty or not. For every terrorist he kills, 1,000 more are born.

 Instead of ending wars, the president has started new wars on Muslims. We are droning Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen, Syria, Iraq among others. Democracy has helped Iraq deteriorate to a new low in human history.13-10-18 Astoria Coast Guard helicopter-1

 He has effected regime change in Afghanistan and Egypt, kept dictators in power in Bahrain and Yemen, is arming all sides in Syria. Yes, he has sent Muslims to hell on this earth.

 He said, “… we seek a new way forward ….” Well no one guessed that his new way forward was to annihilate the Muslims and the Middle East.flag

 The only “interest” President Obama has shown in Muslims is to genocide them. As to “respect”, the word means blood for him. Mr. Obama has a lot of Muslim blood on his hands.

 One hopes that Nobel Committee has a Nobel War & Blood Prize prepared for themosque president. He earned it, he worked for it, he deserves it.

 He can accept it with his bloody hands – Muslim blood on those genocidal hands.

 

 

Palestinian State: NEVER!

December 29, 2014

 

Here are a few facts:

– A country, a state needs land to be a state. There is no land left for a viable Palestinian State.H13-22 Necrosis

– American leaders have killed every word, vetoed every suggestion of a Palestinian State.

– Israel is our 51st State, our spying in and control of the Middle East.

– America, Britain and allies have supported every Israeli land grab and settlement built on Palestinian land.13-10-18 Astoria Coast Guard helicopter-1

– A Palestinian State is an insider dirty joke between America and Israel.

– The Israelis will never be happy because they will always live in fear.

– Mahmud Abbas is not worth spit. He has been negotiating for 25 useless years and has nothing to show for it. He negotiated away Palestine and the Palestinians. He sits on his brain and his ass is in his head.

– Hamas – good or bad – is holding on to Gaza.f2-DSCN2702

Two suggestions:

  1. Send the Palestinian Christians to live in Christian countries, viz. White House, DC and Downing Street, London. Brits would sell their mums to keep the Jews in Israel.
  2. The Palestinian Muslims can be pushed into the Mediterranean, sent to other Arab countries, or the American and Israelis could genocide them like we did the Native Americans whom we did not want.DSCF4284

Now, for the shame of the Muslim world. There are 22 Arab countries, and there is Turkey, Iran, Indonesia, Malaysia and all the “Stans”. Granted some of them, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, thanks to our holy American wars are not in a position to help, but more of these countries should reach out a helping hand to the Palestinians. Some are neutral. Some are on the American payroll. Some are afraid of Israel. Saudi Arabia is a selfish hypocrite.

How can the Muslim (so called) leadership turn their backs on Palestinians God-skywho need food, shelter, medicine, clothes and necessities for daily survival?

Palestinians: How can you have state?

It would take an Act of God to change your lives.

Christmas dinner yesterday was of good food and disturbing conversation. As an immigrant family we have lived in this country for over forty-five years.ttronslien-8953

Our children served in three branches of the military. They have been in Iraq and Afghanistan.

There are teachers, doctors, nurses, and lawyers in the family. Every member is employed and pay taxes. We pay more taxes than some corporations.

It is disturbing to wake up one day and realize that Black people, Spanish people, and Muslim people, all US citizens, are not worth spit in this country.

White men / white people rule and all others are their slaves, their victims, their inferiors. It is obvious that white people hate themselves and have no flagconfidence in their abilities and use these minorities for anger management and to prove their manhood.

These white people have forgotten that most of their ancestors came to these shores as criminals out of some European prisons. The first act of the Pilgrims after arriving here was to slaughter the Native Americans.

OUR KIND OF IMMIGRANTS COMES HERE WITH CLEAN RECORDS AND ENOUGH MONEY TO START A NEW LIFE.

At Christmas dinner we warned our young ones to be careful of police brutality and victimization. Stop and frisk is for real. We taught out kids that police are their friends and in trouble to go to them. Now we tell them when you see a police officer or a police car, remember these are not friends.DSCN7910

This country was built on white people – good Christian people – killing the Natives and enslaving the Africans. Lots of blood on their hands! Today, almost five hundred years later white people are still killing and enslaving anyone who is not white. Lots more blood on their hands. What is it in white people that make them blood thirsty?

Black and Hispanic men are in jail or dead as the law enforcement folks deem necessary. Muslim men are entrapped as would be terrorists and put away for life.

What will happen to our children who served in the military, God-skydefended this country in unnecessary wars, and must now walk on American soil in dread and fear for their lives?

We love this country. We hope these good white Christian people have a good answer for God.
