Trickle Down Psychopathy - Arundhati Roy on Democracy Now! discussing the takeover of Naxalite lands by the Indian Corporotacracy 03-22-2010

MOUists and the MAOists

Trickle Down Psychopathy at its finest in India. Arundhati Roy spent time with the rebel tribal villagers to document them. What is apparent is the Indian corporotocracy and the puppet government have decided that to continue the 6%+ growth in the economy, the tribal people must go since they are standing in the way of what the corporations covet. I guess sharing the profits is out of the question.

The propaganda machine has branded those 'Naxalites' that defend their territory from hostile military and corporate takeover as Maoists.

The term Naxalites comes from Naxalbari, a small village in West Bengal, where an extremist section of Communist Party of India (Marxist) (CPI(M)) led by Charu Majumdar and Kanu Sanyal led a violent uprising in 1967, trying to develop a "revolutionary opposition" in opposition to the CPI(M) leadership. The insurrection started on May 25, 1967 in Naxalbari village when a farmer was attacked over a land dispute. Maoists in the guise of farmers retaliated by attacking the local landlords and escalated the violence.[6] Majumdar greatly admired Mao Zedong, and advocated that Indian peasants and lower classes follow in his footsteps and overthrow the government and upper classes whom he held responsible for their plight

Enough of the Communist spin! They are not fighting for an ideology. They're fighting for their land and way of life just as the American Indians did before they were massacred and robbed of their land.

These Naxalites live as subsistence farmers, living in harmony with nature and gathering resources from the local forests. Unfortunately, their regions are rich with natural resources that can be mined for incredible profits by corporates. They've been cleared out of their villages. They now live in the surrounding forests. They cannot claim title to their land once they're gone. The strategy by the government is to either kill them or starve them to death. That is how it is done in a democracy.

Btw, Kashmir is pronounced Kaush*Mir (as in the Soviet space station Mir). The region did have the name Cashmere previously.

Small Farmers regulated out of business


Used to be a farmer could grow and sell things without interference from anyone else. Why should the government tell you you can't buy something like raw milk from your trusted farmer? As if the milk from a mass producer that abuses their animals and produces milk that's laden with rBST, pus, and antibiotics is safer for me?

What's it the business of the government to say, "No you can't do that!" to simple activities that are quite natural, wholesome, productive which add value to society?

No wonder we're in a depression! We're stopping commerce that benefits the small guys (both on the producer and consumer side).

Chale Jaise Hawayein from the Hindi Movie Main Hoon Na


Time for some BOLLYWOOD!

Here's one of my favorite songs. And a great example of some amazing camera work! It is the song Chale Jaise Hawayein from the Hindi movie Main Hoon Na. I found this video which has pretty good video quality plus subtitles.

The movie is about a Brother (the guy in the train in the middle of the song) meeting his long lost younger Brother (he appears in the second half of the song). The song takes place on a college campus.

What's so unique about this song in this Hindi movie? Make a wild guess while watching it and find the answer below the video.

So what's so special about Chale Jaise Hawayein? The whole song consisted of only 2 camera shots. Now go watch it again :).

Full Body Scanners - A Farce

SAFETY FIRST? These scanners DO NOT WORK! They work between microwave and infrared frequencies to detect body heat and any objects in between will hide the infrared heat from the body and show as dark areas on the monitor.

The video from Germany, Nacktscanner with Mark Lanz (finally with English subtitles), shows how the scanners can easily be fooled.

Nelly Furtado - Say It Right LIVE in Paris 2007


I am awed by the great camera work. Whoever set these cameras up has talent, a knack, and an eye for angles, action, focus, and zoom. He/She made something ordinary into something really interesting to watch! It's a lot like watching a basketball game at home. Watching the game live is not as entertaining as on TV with all the tight shots. Plus the announcer keeps you informed as well as entertained.

Oh did I mention this already good song (also Promiscuous) sound better live than on album?

Muhammad Yunus: Social Business

Most of it has been heard in his previous speeches. There's some new information such as more European and US companies joining in social businesses in Bangladesh. Dr. Muhammad Yunus also states that it is the system that creates and maintains poverty. There's also a few jabs at New York banks and mention of Grameen America

Dr. John Virapen: Side Effects: Death - Confessions of a Pharma-Insider - New Book Out

Dr. John Virapen keeps calling me up and telling me to publish a blog entry on his new book Side Effects: Death - Confessions of a Pharma-Insider. I have to apologize to him for delaying it so much after repeatedly telling him I'll do it. So anyways, here it is.

Here is my previous blog entry on Dr. John Rengen Virapen, for anyone not familiar with him. He was a high level executive who worked 35 years for Eli Lilly & Co. Disgusted by the pharmaceutical industry's business practices, he's now turned insider / whistleblower.

His new book, Side Effects: Death - Confessions of a Pharma-Insider, exposes the shady side of the big pharma industry. It's a tell all book like John Perkin's Confessions of an Economic Hitman. Billions in profits, deaths and side effects, bribes, fraudulent trials, coverups, fines, large political contributions which give rise to lax regulations are just some of the topics covered in his new book.

Here is a sample from his book (PDF).

Softcover (ISBN: 978-1-60264-516-5) and kindle (ASIN: B00375LYEG) editions are available on Amazon.

He also has a EBOOK available on his website. (ISBN: 978-1-60264-517-2)

Hey John, how are your books sales going so far? :p (He'll call me, I know he will.)

Neocolonolism: Africa's rich agricultural fields


Here's another reason why you should buy local. Create a disincentive for monopolistic multinational companies to go overseas and steal other people's lands for profit. Why are we taking jobs from local US farmers AND African farmers so the end consumer can save a few pennies? Shouldn't the US feed US? Shouldn't Africa feed Africa? Shouldn't the people of Africa benefit from their own lands? Does it make any sense to ship goods from one continent to another just to save a few pennies?

Is it ironic that coffee and other crops get exported from Ethiopia (mainly to Europe) while people are starving in the country? Change or be changed. The fallout from these economic policies is coming to the theatre near you.

The way I see it is the multinationals should be th sharecroppers working on land owned by these small farmers.

Used Home Salesman creates Toyota hoax


James Sikes sikes out everyone following the evening news. This is the reason why i wait a few days after an event happens to comment. The truth comes out by then. Toyota, and not James Sikes, will ultimately gain by this hoax.

Used homes and used cars have one thing in common: Salesmen. James Sikes is a realtor that has lived a life on bluffs and getting away with lies and deceit. This is the cherry on top. He expects to profit from his hoax. Let's hope he gets punished with some jail time for endangering people's lives.

The article goes on to say why what he says cannot happen in reality. I am wondering why he is bothering pulling the accelerator pedal up? I thought it was a electronic malfunction? The pedal does not need to be pressed down for the car to move out of control? And to not hit anything going 90mph for 20 minutes on crowded freeway, all the while refusing to not put the car in neutral?

And I really smell a rat here. I believe the US Treasury wants the "uncooperative" Japanese to buy more US Treasuries. What a way to damage a company's reputation by bringing out "ghost" problems that can't be tracked down and fixed and plaster it all over the news. I remember many years ago, the US strong armed the Japanese for not providing more revenue for US businesses.

Anything mechanical or electronic is going to have problems. To have only 30 or so people report problems with unintended acceleration out of the whole country and millions of units sold is pretty darn good. I can't believe Toyota would be the only manufacturer to have this problem, if this really is problem. Anyways, let's see what happens.

It might be a good time to buy a new Toyota due to all the incentives they're giving out like 0% financing and a higher cash back rebate.

Doris “Granny D” Haddock (1910-2010) passes away

Doris “Granny D” Haddock (1910-2010) passed away recently. She was a legendary lady who walked across the country, 10 miles a day, for 14 months to raise awareness for campaign finance reform.

She ran for the Senate in 2004 in New Hampshire. As usual, people wasted their votes by for everyone but her. It's even more disappointing to know that she wasn't elected in New Hampshire, the most independent and libertarian minded state in the country.

She reminds me of Cindy Sheehan who ran (and lost) against Pelosi for the House seat in the San Francisco area. Another opportunity blown.

Enterprise Corruption: A Revision of Revised History


Hey guys, no.. I didn't get run over by a Mack truck. I'm still around. I just didn't have any time or interest in updating the blog. Plus there really was no new material worth posting. Maybe I've gotten conditioned to a point where news doesn't phase me anymore based on what I already know.

Every so often, I visit the website to get a view of the world that does not exist in the mainstream. Here's another way of looking at things!
