Slavery is alive and well, in Wisconsin.

“It’s illegal in America now to buy or sell a human being, but a recorded telephone conversation between a Republican governor and a guy he thought was a billionaire benefactor shows that it’s still possible to own a politician.”

In a Democracy, Freedom of Assembly Trumps “Free Enterprise”

“Corporations are accomplishing their goal of shriveling government to the point of ineffectiveness so “enterprise” is “free” to run rogue. Now with their purchased politicians, corporations are trying to do the same to unions — the only organization other than government that has traditionally effectively defended working Americans.

In the recorded conversation between Walker and a liberal blogger posing as David Koch, Walker accepted an offer of a vacation trip from the “billionaire” if he “crushed” the public employee unions and said his effort was to get “our freedoms back.”

That’s exactly right. This is a contest between the excesses of “free” enterprise and the constitutionally-protected freedom of assembly. And getting “our freedoms back” means wresting them back from corporations.”

It’s too late.

Obama was the last president elected by the people. You will never have that freedom again.

First, the Supreme Court further bastardized the constitution by declaring artificial people, in the form of corporations, can spend as much money as they like electing who they want. This despite the fact that real people can’t do that. Of course, real people also have to go to jail when they commit crimes. Artificial people can buy themselves off with money.

What’s the second thing you ask? We have just lost net neutrality. It doesn’t matter what the FCC says, it doesn’t matter what regulations are in place. ComCast has proven that an artificial person can violate the law and nothing will happen to them. In this case, not even a fine. The have effectively pulled the teeth of the FCC. Now ComCast can control broadband traffic, deciding what you can and cannot access on the internet, with absolutely no accountability and no consequences. d

The internet is how Obama got elected.

That means ComCast and it’s corporate friends can control who gets elected in 2010 and 2012.

Welcome to the Fascist States of Amerika.

“Fascism should more properly be called corporatism because it is the merger of state and corporate power.”
-Benito Mussolini


Told you so.

This decision came down days ago.

Why is it the major media outlets either aren’t covering it at all or waited until the weekend to dump it?

Was it so people wouldn’t notice they change in our government? That they wouldn’t notice how they lost their rights? That our country has become a Fascist I.E. Corporate State?

Was it to avoid a rebellion? Trust me, the next revolution will not take place in the streets using guns, knives and pitchforks. I know that is what the police and military are training for. And it’s what the teabaggers think they’ll either have to do or defend themselves from.

Liberals and progressives don’t work that way. Didn’t anyone learn anything from the 60s and Vietnam?

No.

Just like the next World War will not be fought with guns and bombs, neither will our next revolution.

The next World World will be an economic war. It may already be happening. Some country is going to simply destroy the economy of another and take it over on paper. Considering how much paper China holds, it may already have taken place. They own a lot of the United States. And considering the Supreme Court’s recent decision, they can pretty much own the government too. They just have to keep buying companies like they have been, then use their new corporate “personhood” to buy the official of their choice each election.

Done.

Thank you, George W. Bush. The History books will NOT be kind. Obama did not put Roberts and Alito on the bench and this will not be blamed on him. You did it all yourself, George. I’m sure with plenty of help from Cheney. No, history will not be kind. They will nail your ass to the wall. I’m sure it’s already being discussed and analyzed in university poli-sci classes and books will be hitting amazon soon. Helluva legacy, Georgie.

Buy them while you can. Pretty soon you’ll be censored as to what books you can and cannot buy. Net Neutrality will be gone. You’ll see a change to the news. Colbert and Stewart will be gone. Not just on the air, I mean gone. There will be a change in the subject of stand up comics; no more political jabs. Those that don’t conform will disappear.

Then they’ll come after the teachers. Textbooks and curriculum will be censored. We’re already seeing that in…. Texas. Wow. Big surprise there.

Canada. I need to add up my points.


SPIN!

January 22, 2010

OH, they’re scrambling to avoid the backlash they know is coming. They’re sly, they’re smart and they can afford to hire the best PR spin doctors. And the prescriptions is “Don’t call us.”

Allow me to translate.

Don’t call us, we’ll call you. We no longer need to donate to you. We have eliminated the middle man (Thank you Roberts and Alito and the rest of the Fascist Five) and we’ll buy you direct. We’ll call you to tell you what we want. And if you don’t play, we’ll have someone else elected. Thanks for playing. We own the nation and we’re calling the shots.

Oh, and SCREW YOU.


Here’s your new pledge.

January 22, 2010

“I pledge allegiance to the flag
of the corporate states of America.
And to the conglomeration,
for which it stands,
one nation, under many CEOs,
always divisible,
with liberty and privileges for some.”

I guess we’ll have to wait for American Idol to choose a new anthem.


In case you have any doubts….

January 22, 2010

or have some sort of twisted idea that the Supreme Court “leveled the playing field” or some such Faux Noise talking point Republican garbage, let me enlighten you.

Jason Linkins has brought up some plausible and frightening facts in the aftermath of the Supreme Court’s coup.

The Pinnochio Project, in which the Supreme Court turns a corporation into a real, live boy.

In 2006, USA Today reported: “Nearly one in five U.S. oil refineries is owned by foreign companies. In 2008, it was reported that foreign ownership of U.S. companies “more than doubled” between 1996 and 2005. To get a fix on the spending power, consider this: “The total receipts of foreign-owned companies were $1.7 trillion in 1996 and just $39 billion in 1971.”

That means foreign “companies”, I.E. artificial people, can now vote in our elections. But foreign real people cannot.

In the 2008 election, Barack Obama and John McCain combined to spend about $1 billion, a number that Politico’s Jeanne Cummings called “an unprecedented figure.” And the combined expenditures of the entire 2008 cycle came to “a record-shattering $5.3 billion in spending by candidates, political parties and interest groups on the congressional and presidential races.”

TOTAL AMOUNT OF BONUSES PAID OUT BY GOLDMAN-SACHS, 2009: $16 billion

TOTAL AMOUNT OF BONUSES PAID OUT BY JPMORGAN CHASE, 2009: $27 billion

TOTAL AMOUNT OF BONUSES PAID OUT BY MORGAN STANLEY, 2009: $14 billion

TOTAL AMOUNT OF BONUSES PAID OUT BY CITIGROUP, 2009: $25 billion

So you see, if this decision has been in place prior to the election, President McCain and Vice President Sarah Palin would be in the White House. And since most corporations have a decided Republican bent, we’d essentially have a one party system, with more and more Republicans getting elected (along with Blue Dogs owned by Corporations) and laws would be for the benefit of those large, for profit, people, not the little guys actually paying the taxes. We’d have that Fascist Theocracy Bush worked so hard to initiate. Well, it just took a little longer than planned, but we’re there. And since you and me are not part of the elite power brokers or über wealthy, we’ll be the serfs who pay for no say. Oh, yeah, kiss your health care goodbye. Kiss goodbye net neutrality, clean air, clean water, safe food, safe cars, just about anything with a regulation to protect you from corporate profit. It’s gone. No limits.

You haven’t seen anything close to abuse of the system yet. Regulations are going to be out the window. Just watch what Lisa Murkowski is trying to do to the EPA. She’s funded by big energy. Now they can really begin to spend to get what they want. They already own the Supreme Court. By 2012 they’ll own ALL of Congress and the White House too.

I never thought I’d live to see the day.

I’ll have to wait until I retire to move to Canada and in the meantime, I’m losing immigration points.
