Howard Zinn: Central Government and the Class Document

Constitution The Class Document

Excerpts from Howard Zinn's speech:

Nox says to George Washington, "These people who have rebelled. They think because they fought in the revolution, they fought in the war against England. That they deserve an equal share of the wealth of this country"... No..

Those are the kinds of letters that went back and forth. We got setup a government that will be strong enough to put down the rebellions of the poor, slave revolts, the Indians, who many resent our going into their territory. That's what a strong central government is for. ... The Constitution is a class document written to protect the interests bond holders and slave owners and land expanionists.

Howard Zinn on Holy Wars, Central Government, and the Constitution

The Three Psychopaths


You rebel against the slave masters and throw them out. We, France, demand reparations for our financial losses.

You fight our WTO, IMF and World Bank, we turn up the heat everytime. You don't want to accept our terms, say hello to our military.

You finally succeed in creating a democracy, we produce a Coup d'état, TWICE.

You have a earthquake, we invite ourselves for some fun with disaster capitalism.

So here we are again. We unashamingly present the Haiti recovery group, led by a prestigious dignitiries such as:

Bill Clinton: Mr. I did not have coup d'état relations with that country, Haiti. Nor did I shove terms favorable to multinationals uponst the helpless country.

George W. Bush: Brings valuable experience from leadering the Katrina Disaster. Responsible for the wonderful second coup d'état. Like Columbus, George W. Bush was looking (for WMDs) in the wrong hemisphere.

Barack Obama: Multinationals' finest embassador. They haven't had it so good as opportunities keep presenting themselves, this time, a chance to profit from franchises, hotels, and other corporate and monopolistic business activities. Who cares about the little guy?

Btw, Clinton and Bush would like to thank everyone that donated to the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund. We will funnel the money into offshore accounts, our personal black projects, and invest in valuable Haitian assets through multinationals and corporate funded NGOs. Isn't making money and policy fun? Along the way, we will empower dictators to see to our interests. As an added bonus, there's a new oil find up along the coast of Haiti.

I invite you to visit the psychopathy tag for more info.

Howard Zinn passes away at 87


I heard it on the car radio and I was floored.

You always expect a person to be there. But it is only a limited and fleeting window of time and a window of opportunity that we get.

Today, the world loses one of the great ones, Howard Zinn.

Toyota Suspends Sales: The real story


Sorry guys, I've been involved with some fun Cisco telephony engineering projects and haven't given any attention to blogs these past few weeks. Look for this pace to continue in the coming weeks.

Anyways, I thought I'd quickly blog about the announcement Toyota made and this is the first thought that came to my mind: It looks like Toyota can't sell cars so they're using the "carpet mats getting in the accelerator" excuse to suspend their sales so they don't build up inventory that they will need to deep discount on.

A company voluntarily suspending production and sales when there's money to be made, much less being concerned about safety? Who heard of such a thing? Just a thought...

Raj Patel on Thom Hartmann Show 01-19-2010


Raj Patel on the Thom Hartmann Show makes some really good observations about current economics such as excluding external costs in the total cost of a product, having a complaintocracy, and amount of freedom or rights based on the amount of money.

Fast forward to 1hr 13 minutes in the file. It's only a 10 minute interview.

More from Raj Patel. This time he analyzes supermarkets. I look forward to hearing more great ideas from him.

A Joyous Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day!


Shouldn't Dr. Martin Luther King Jr's birthday be a national holiday celebrated throughout the nation, private and government? Why is it the mass public does not get a day off on his birthday? Does the corporatocracy not want celebrated someone who represent values that are humanitarian and not corporate?

This world is upside down, inside out!

Joel Salatin on local farming vs. the industrial model


Note: I got this of Catherine Austin Fitt's

Joel Salatin tells us the reason for laws and regulations on the farmer is to keep him a serf in the commodity market. He is not allowed to sell products without building a massive infrastructure that costs $100,000+. He also has to comply with restrictive laws intended for a large factory. This keeps the farmer from competing against Walmart and the grocery store.

Wouln't it be nice to pick up food from a neighbor?

Arrowhead Beer Commercial

Well this explains why some beers taste like piss.

It makes me wonder how diluted the exhaust, gasoline, and oil gets from all those boats and ski doos in Lake Havasu, Lake Mead, and the Colorado River. Gotta wonder about that benzene.

Then I drive down the 5 freeway from Sacramento to Los Angeles and find the aquaduct transporting water from the north is right next to the freeway, absorbing the exhaust from the cars and runoff from the nearby farms.

Jimmy Kimmel on Jay Leno Show 01-14-2010


Here's a hilarious clip of Jimmy Kimmel making fun of Jay Leno's nomadic tendancies.

I must say Jay Leno is quite a draw and it is actually beneficial for Conan O' Brien to have Leno push the high number of viewers into his Late Night show.

Why Haiti is so poor


Haiti is the first and only country in the world to have a black uprising in order to uproot colonialism and become independant. France and America quickly made sure Haiti wouldn't succeed via boycotts and blockades and reparations.

So why is Haiti so poor? Could it be all those coups to 'democratize' Haiti? Ousting the democratically elected president Jean-Bertrand Aristide TWICE by coups orchestrasted by America and some other nations made sure the corporatocracy had their moneyed interests secured. In subsequent elections, political parties unfriendly to the corporatocracy would not be allowed to run in elections.

Haiti Donations

Looking to donate to help out the victims of the massive 7.0 earthquake in Haiti?

Catherine Austin Fitts recommends an organization that you can feel confident about that will use your money wisely. They're not going to hire area managers for 6 figure salaries like the Red Cross. They're not going to stuff the donations into investments (such as with Madoff)instead of giving the money away right away to the intended victims/recipients.

General Assembly & Church of the Firstborn
161 Baker Road
Hohenwald, TN 38462

Checks payable to “General Assembly & Church of the Firstborn” and put “Haiti Mission” in the memo line.

The church has a mission in Haiti.

Catherine Austin Fitts: The latest and greatest 1/2010

Here's the latest from Catherine Austin Fitts as of 01/07/2010.

What's covered in the video with James Corbett? Stop having other people manage your money. Decide for yourself where to put it. Make money ethical. The money managers buy real assets with your money while you get paper. Chances are the small bankers will be much more ethical than the big banks. Give them energy and power. One person can make a change.

"It also means that our culture will have to adopt old timely values. Take care of your business and your family. Good manners. Hard work. Discipline. Caring about those around you. Keeping your word.

So it seems to me that the problem is that we — all of us from the gangsters to the spoiled many - are not behaving like mature adults and all solutions require that we do."

Dr. Govindappa Venkataswamy's Aravind Eye Care Hospital


This is why you should go to work everyday. Not just to blindfoldedly collect money, but to feel fulfilled and rewarded by improving current and future conditions around you. And if you're not doing this, you're being cheated of a wonderful experience.

So what's stopping you from leaving the monkey cage and the hamster wheel? Is it that chase of the all mighty dollar? The top down business model and decisions made by control freaks have you shackled. So why do we have a top down model? It's so that the psychopathic control freaks have something to do. It's for their job security and enjoyment. Just think Dr. Evil.

Alas, we have come to this question. Who's really blind and when do we cure the blindness?

Richard Wolff - On Cooperation and Companies run by Employees 12-02-2009


Richard Wolff is an Economics Professor at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. Here is a speech conducted at Brown University, Providence RI on 12-02-2009.

I've rambled about cooperatives before on the blog. Just check the tag cooperatives.

Cooperation. Cooperatives. Owned and run 100% by workers. It's a better than the top down model we currently have now. Why work in a hostile, demoralizing work environment when you can enjoy what you do and have control over your future in a cooperative? Share your fair share of the profits and losses. Be accountable. Be responsible. Isn't it ironic that people that quit fulltime jobs to start their own companies are actually building on the cooperative model? Would they startup and participate in a company where they do not share the profits fairly or do not control their own destiny?

Modern day corporations are citadels of fascism. Every morning, workers come into an environment of a totalitarism where decisions are made from a disconnected, hidden, omnipresent, and self appointed dictatorship.

Currently, 1/3rd of all the profit goes to the tiny number of executives of the company while the worker bees are expected to produce more and be paid less than last year. It's a great way to take control away from citizens and make them dependant on the source of income. What a way to become a slave of the system!

My person reason for boycotting Coco-Cola? Because they steal water from small villages in India and make the villagers' lives miserable.
