Control the media, Control the population. What happened to the free press?ttronslien-8953 To freedom of speech? To journalists and reporters rights to report and record the crimes of politicians?

What happened to the pen is mightier than the sword? Or words are better than bullets?

Some newspapers in the US barely mentioned the Israeli invasion of Gaza or the Chelsea Manning trial. Why not?f2-DSCN2702

One that did mention the Gaza Holocaust – The NY Times – was so biased that its coverage was more propaganda than truth. The Times coverage was so nauseating that I cancelled my subscription indefinitely.

When one reads the NY Times and Newsday in the morning and must turn to BBC and Al Jazeera in the evening for the facts, the truth in Gaza and the Manning case, then it is time to cancel the subscription. Is it better for the Times to print propaganda or for Newsday to ignore the crisis in Gaza?DSC_6745

If the people of the US were given the facts about Gaza – no water, no electric, no medicine, schools and hospitals bombed, how would they react? Shouldn’t they know the truth?

Where is the outrage in the US about these atrocities? In other countries there were marches and protests. Bishop Desmond Tutu among others protested. Why not a word of protest in the US?DSC_5769

Americans are so conditioned to sit in front of the TV and laugh the night away that sometimes they are on another planet.

MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERASo far social media have added to their entertainment, but not to their body of knowledge. However, social media brought down many governments and caused great trouble in other parts of the world.

Wal*mart and Slave Labour

December 9, 2013

The Wal-Mart Empire exploits the poor and needy.

Friends: If you care about the poor and needy people around you, please don’t shop at Wal-Mart. If you are earning 7.25 per hour and you have a family of four, perhaps you can “afford” food, but what about clothes, education and health care for you family?

Yes, Wal-Mart sell poor quality cheap stuff, but they pay 20 cents per hour to people in places like Bangladesh to make those cheap stuff. At 20 cents per hour, for a 60 hour week, that is $12 per week, or $48 per month. This is slave labour and slave wages. One newspaper said it is $38 per month.

Wal-Mart exploits the poor in other countries and sell inferior quality cheap stuff to you, but still manage to hoard billions in profit every year.

Yes, they sell stuff cheap, but look at how they treat their workers in the US? Wal-Mart is propagating and supporting modern slavery. They pay their American workers slave wages. Who can live on 7.25 per hour? Their employees do not get full-time – 40 hours per week – work, so they have no benefits, no sick time, no paid holidays.

Wal-Mart employees give up every holiday on the calendar including Thanksgiving and Christmas, because every day is a sales day.

Wal-Mart has taken slavery to a new low. Their form of lynching is to fire the poor or needy if they get sick or need a day for their kids or the doctor.

Yes, Wal-Mart sell stuff cheap, but they are exploiting the blood and sweat of poor and needy workers around the world and in the US to make their billions every year.

My perpetual question is this: How much money can these billionaires take to heaven with them? God does not accept cash, gold, silver, mansions, minerals or oil. In God’s world, master and slave have the same trial, justice and reward or punishment. And if there is no God, then so far no one has enclosed cash, gold, silver, mansions, minerals or oil in his coffin.

Wal-Mart stocks – sorry employs – hundreds of thousands of people in the US and abroad. These people are poor and needy and they are grateful for 20 cents or 7.25 per hour. But they are also exploited, oppressed and slaves in the 21st Century!

In the past slaves used to get food, used clothing, a cow shed to sleep in, a good beating when they misbehaved, and a final lynching when they looked at the master’s women folks.

Today at Walmart’s plantation, the slaves have the freedom to choose their poison. After all 20 cents or 7.25 per hour is better than starvation. But in the name of food, family and human decency, isn’t exploiting, oppressing, and enslaving people a punishable crime?

New Department opened at Wal-Mart: Slaves for sale. Cheap labour by the hour. Minority rights redefined. Develop plantation mentality. Free classes on exploitation, oppression, and slave trade. Call the heirs & board of directors to sign up.

Happy head hunting! Happy lynching! Happy shopping.

Immune to Murder – Are We?

November 14, 2013

Coalition to Stop Gun Violence

Am I going to be the next victim of a mass murderer? Am I becoming immune to murder?

According to the news, every day some where in America some one is committing mass murder using WMD. In homes with families, in shopping malls, in streets, in public spaces, in schools, in fact in any place where humans congregate, shooting the innocent is becoming the norm.

But there is no public outcry anymore! There is also not much TV coverage, and very little press. At most a few paragraphs are hidden in the back pages. The media, it seems, have joined forces with the NRA to silence coverage and publicity of gun violence.

The NRA is an organization born in hell. They have no shame, no responsibility, no accountability, and no guilt for the innocent lives they take, the pain and loss they cause unsuspecting people, the families they destroy, and certainly no respect for the voices of outrage and protest against their evil practices.

The media, however, owes the public a debt. It has a duty to tell the public of these daily / weekly crimes against humanity; disseminating this kind of information is vital to public safety. The media need to speak loudest against gun violence – not hide behind silence.

We as a nation are becoming immune to murder. We hear of six people shot to death in North Carolina, we shrug our shoulders and move on. The mall shooting and we wrinkle our nose and move on. Two teachers shot dead and we turn the other way and move on.

If we remain passive we help the NRA; we help the media; we accept mass killings; we immune ourselves to death by shooting.

Yes, we are becoming immune to murder. When we begin to take murders, killings, dronings, and homicides in stride without emotions, outrage, or shock, and condemn gun violence loudly, then we are lost as a society.

Perhaps we are already immune to mass murders – death by shooting with gun by Homo sapiens

One person’s view on democracy in the United States:

1. Rich people destroy the earth; poor people starve because of them.
2. 1% exploit and oppress 99%
3. Congress = a bunch of jokers = a bunch of mentally inept elected greed asses.
4. Supreme court = bigots, racists, elitists, paid by the white & rich.
5. Government = top down policies suffocate the poor.
6. Elected officials end up in lobbyists pockets.
7. President = figure-head caught between congress and supreme court.
8. Democracy = minority rule in congress.
9. Democracy closes schools & opens more prisons.
10. Democracy means white men rule & apartheid is good government.
11. Democracy: destroy the Constitution & its Amendments & implement apartheid.
12. Democracy means spying on its citizens in the name of patriotism & security.
13. Democracy means conquering the world, fighting terrorism & killing the innocent.
14. Democracy = empire = conquering universe = selling arms to all & sundry.
15. Democracy is for white men; all other people, races, can go to hell.
16. Democracy is denying 45 million people health care.
17. Democracy is denying senior citizens social security, health care & the means to live.
18. Democracy is denying kids their birth right: food, shelter, health care & education.
19. Democracy is closing down the government while people starve & soldiers are denied burial.
20. Democracy is entrapping innocent people, torturing them, violating their human rights, denying them a fair trial, and forgetting them in jail for the rest of their lives.
21. American democracy is the best capitalism in the world.
22. Democracy = media controlled by the government and the rich.
23. Democracy is perpetual war and perpetual poverty.
24. Democracy is bailing out banks and taking away taxpayers home.
25. Go to Greece and study the concept of democracy.

Democracy is for the birds. We the American people just want self-government. Is that too much to ask?

Stop worrying about who is spying on us! Where I live on every street corner there is a camera on the light pole taking pictures of my car. The bank records my visits. The supermarket, drug store, library, dept. store, restaurant, post office, they all have surveillance equipment 24 hours per day. They record me and all my neighbors & friends.

Am I safer? No! There are still mass murders and robberies every week. And then the cell phone, internet and other electronic equipment inform the authorities about what I’m thinking, where I’ve been, where I’m going, what I bought, who I spoke to, what I said, and even deliver information I don’t know about myself. So there!

So my friends, we are living in the worst possible time in all of history. So stop worrying.

Privacy is dead!

Republicans Hate Obama

October 10, 2013

The racist white republicans hate President Obama. They hate him with passion! They hate him because he is ½ black, and no ½ black man has the right to be president of the very white US of A. Not after slavery. Not in the 21st Century. Not Ever! This country belongs to the white man.

However, in their hate they have forgotten two things: the people of this country voted twice for President Obama, and consumed in their hate of the president they have forgotten their duty to the people who elected them.

Their hate is taking this country back to a time where no decent, patriotic American would want to go. Perhaps one day soon they will wake up and face the damage they have done to this country and its people. One hopes the voters are paying attention!
