Double Standards

The United States likes for American citizens to think of the nation as a country where justice is equal. A nation where there is no disparity shown under American law. Is there an American citizen any where in the nation, who with confidence believes that statement?

Yet Americans, allow so many disparities in the nations jurisprudence to go unchallenged. So this writer has decided to chronicle two incidences showing showing such disparities in law with two separate postings. As the chronicles are developed, picture yourself as the restaurateur who was robbed and prosecuted. Or, the victim whose life was lost, but the state said, it was an unfortunate oversight.

The owner of a small restaurant that sat customers at eight tables. Where he functioned as chef and chief bottle washer. Meaning of course, that every task in such an operation fell upon him which included any renovations.

One late night after his restaurant closed. He was in the midst of remodeling his restaurant. Already exhausted from a long days work, he decided to take a break from work. He went to his car where he was approached by a African American with a criminal record. He was forced to return to the inside of his business where he was robbed. As the thief left his business establishment, he called 911. He then got into his car looking for the thief. He spotted the thief. He drove down the one way street with the thief approaching. Suddenly he swerved directly into the thief, killing the 24 year old criminal.

The State Attorney and his prosecutorial staff were divided as to what statute under Florida law to charge the restaurateur with. Some members of the state attorney’s staff argued for charging him with second degree murder. Finally, they decided upon the criminal crime of manslaughter.

His case went to trial where the jury acquitted him.

After the acquittal, the State Attorney, said this was a case that had to be tried.

Of course, the State Attorney ignored the reality that our Constitution provides Americans with the right to be safe and secure within their premises. In addition a recently enacted Florida law provides the same guarantees. The case should never have been tried.

US-Israeli Debacle

According to emerging reports, the United States planned the Israeli attacks upon Lebanon. The lesson the Bush-Cheney administration wanted to determine was how formidable a foe was Hezbollah. Because the Israeli-Hezbollah conflict, was designed to serve as a prelude, to war with Iran.

Now they know! as Hezbollah emerged victorious from its month long war with Israel.

Warfare is always in a state of change. In previous wars the enemy was identifiable by their uniforms and clear markings on their weaponry. The United States can not be certain as to who makes up Hezbollah. Some of these warriors obviously are Lebanese, others might come from Iraq, Syria, or Iran. The Muslim world is fed up with American arrogance, as is most of the world. So, these military combatants could be from any number of countries. Maybe even troops from Western countries.

While the world once viewed , the United States as the only remaining super power. Which use to create images of respect, and recognition of a power that can not be defeated. Since 9/11 that has changed drastically, especially with the temporary pause with the fighting in Lebanon.

The world media is reporting that in the 33 day war. Israel flew more than 10,000 bombings into Lebanon. It is estimated that Israeli ground forces swelled to 30,000 troops.

In return Hezbollah fired nearly 4,000 rockets into Israel. It is estimated that Hezbollah has an army of about 1,000.

Hezbollah reports the death of 60 of its soldiers while Israel reports the death of 113 of its soldiers.

Israel suffered the deaths of 24 of its soldiers just prior to the cease fire. its highest single day death toll. Hezbollah shot down more than four American made Apache helicopters. In addition, the pride of the Israeli army is their fast speed Merkava tank. Many of those Israeli tanks were destroyed. As was one Israeli warship.

The enemies of US-Israel aggression knew that Israel with US sophisticated weaponry could destroy a nations infrastructure. But those sophisticated weapons, could not defeat a well trained determined guerrilla force. This they learned from the US-Iraqi war. They also learned that 150,000 Americans troops are being defeated in Iraqi. So, why not take on the United States anytime anywhere; they will!

Why Isreal Murdered 4 Peacekeepers

From the lips of United Nations, Secretary General, Kofi Annan, saying that he was “shocked at the apparently “deliberate” and “purposeful” targeting of the United Nation’s post.” In Russia, where the government issued a statement saying that the murder of four unarmed peacekeepers was “unacceptable.”

The Israeli terrorist war machine characterizes the murder of the four peacekeepers as a regrettable accident. Fully supported by this American government and its state controlled media.

The difficult task is sorting out these assertions and counter assertions. One approach is to examine partisan apologists for Israel terrorism like the Jerusalem Post. And of course, as many know,”loose lips sink ships,” so its always useful to listen to the loose lips of government officials. For they certainly sank the ship of the Zionist war machine, the Israel Defense Force responsible for the murders. As did, Dan Gillerman, Israel Ambassador to the United States. Who asserted that those UN peacekeepers provided cover for Hezbollah. Saying those peacekeepers have never been able to prevent any shelling of Israel or any kidnappings. The Ambassador went on to say that the UN peacekeepers chose not to know, or to see what Hezbollah was doing. Making them “hopeless,” continued the Israel Ambassador.

Considering the Israelis diplomatic accusations of the UN peacekeepers as unwittingly collaborating with Hezbollah. And with such accusatory statements, should the world be surprised by their deliberate sinister attack upon unarmed peacekeepers. Who begged the Israeli government to halt the attacks. Additional efforts to halt the attacks were made by United Nation’s Generals “demanding” that the Israel Defense Force “halt” and “hold fire.” All calls were denied!

Israeli foreign minister, Yigal Palmor, wants the world community who accuse Israel of such crimes to answer “why on earth” would we “deliberately” eliminate United Nations observers. The “why on earth” was answered by the Israel Ambassador.

Then the Jerusalem Post was quick to echo the statements of the Israel Ambassador and Foreign Minister. By asking, “why pray tell?” But they, went on to indict Israel and answering,”why pray tell.” By observing that these peacekeeping observers failed to report why Hezbollah secured 1,000’s of rockets, Then in an unprovoked manner launched them into Israel. If Israel had called, for an United Nations investigation of the peacekeepers dereliction of duty. The paper felt that Israel would have received a “white wash” from an United Nations. Whose investigation would amount to nothing more than excuses for their peacekeepers. Who were serving as “human shields” for Hezbollah. Instead of attempting to disarm Hezbollah. The paper asserted that Israel is “owed more than that.”

Following their history, that when individual people or organization displease them they just simply obliterate the individual or organization. They did this to the US Liberty mentioned in the last posting. What was not mentioned was the “why.” which I plan to address.

Seems clear that murder of United Nations peacekeepers was “purposeful” and “intentional.”

Israel a Rogue State

Israel must be classified as a rogue state for its ruthless slaughter of the Lebanese people. Which includes children, women, men and the elderly who are non-combatants. To make things worse they destroy clearly marked red cross vehicles transporting people to hospitals. Even the Nazis allowed safe passage of emergency vehicles to hospitals. In addition, they are denying the Lebanese people humanitarian relief.

The Iranian President, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, recently said that Israel has “pushed the button of its own destruction” because of its behavior in Lebanon. He went to say that Israel should “pack up and move elsewhere.”

The truth is that Israel does not belong there. Palestine at the time was a British mandate. They gained a foothold there threw terrorists guerrilla warfare. It came about when Ariel Sharon joined the terrorists organization Haganah. This terrorists guerrilla Zionist group failed to pressure the British to allow the formation of statehood for Israel. They then then assassinated the British Secretary of State. The Jews learned to kill innocents from their forefathers. When they can not accomplish their political goals peacefully they resort to terror. After the assassination of the Secretary of State, they boomed the King David Hotel. That terror attack killed nearly 100 people. Which was not an isolated; incident.

In June 1967, during Israel’s six day war. They made a tourists attack upon the USS Liberty in international waters. Flying the flag of the United States, on a clear sunny day.They murdered many sailors. Eventually they paid the United States six million dollars for their terror attack.

As the world knows, Israel sponsored another terror attack. This time upon an United Nations outpost. The Israel terror attack, as you know, murdered four unarmed UN observers.

After World War 11, Great Britain and the United States decided to deny holocaust survivors admission to their countries. Instead they directed them to Israel who by then had gained statehood.

Without compensation or respect for the Palestinian people. the worlds civilized nations just uprooted these people. And said the land belongs to Israel.

And the worlds, civilized nations expect peace in the Middle East.

Peace will escape in the Middle East

In previous centuries world powers could attack other nations with impunity. Today that impunity does not exist. Despite this, the Israeli-US aggression to remake the world in the image of Zionist, Christian states continues. Their hard lessons since 1948 still have not been digested. More so today than ever, such tactics are doomed to disaster because such impunity today is non-existent. The only question waiting to be answered is the magnitude of the disaster. Most likely the answer will come from Iran. It has at least one nuclear reactor located in Bushehr. One can only suspect that their nuclear program is in high gear. Perhaps Iran as a nuclear power can do for the world; what diplomacy will fail to accomplish.

As dangerous as nuclear weapons are, history shows that they served a useful deterrent. The cold war served as perfect example which was about ideology, Cold war ideology had many sub-sets. One of them being religion. The struggle between good and evil. Non-religious states verses religious states. The conflict between Pakistan, and India with differing religious views. These states are kept in the balance because both know they can only go so far in their war skirmishes. The same proved true during the cold war. When Iran becomes a nuclear power, perhaps they can deter US-Israeli aggression in the Middle East. And perhaps, the world will survive.

It is a different world with George W. Bush at the helm. Because he represents a unparalleled threat to the world stability, with his determination to remake the world in the image of his God. World leaders characterize Bush as being senseless. A person who really does not understand world events. They are wrong about Bush not understanding world events. He certainly does understand world events! But not from a secular perspective, and that is what makes him so dangerous. George W. Bush sees world events from a Christian evangelical fundamentalist perspective. Meaning certain prophecies must be fulfilled before Christ can return and establish his kingdom on earth. He sees himself as being chosen by God to bring about that event.

Bush sees himself accountable to a higher authority (God) which drives his recklessness. His 800 signing statements attached to Congressional legislation. Declaring himself not obligated to honor laws that contradict his duties as chief executive for the nation.

It is why Bush has no regard for human rights, or international laws or conventions. He is a Messianic President. Determined to do his part, So Christ can return, and eventually establish his kingdom on earth. All that makes him very dangerous.

Many world governments may not understand this about George W. Bush, But the Muslim world clearly understands this about Bush. From this understanding, the Muslim world is preparing to give Bush his Armageddon. The final battle between good and evil.

Hezbollah

Many have discovered, which includes this writer, that to really understand world events. We have to search the international media. This is nothing knew because decades ago, we subscribed to international publications in order to grasp international events. Books were also purchased written by international authors. Some of us had the good fortune of establishing friendships with a few of these people. Which resulted in a far different perspective, than the pictured painted by the American media.

Today it is much easier, and far less expense to understand world events because of the Internet. Many international publications publish their material in English. Of course, in order to come to an understanding of global “happenings.” It is vital to read the American media in order to come to grips with the American perspective. That is then balanced with the international perspectives. Then searchers for understanding will find themselves “enlightened” world citizens. Then perhaps, America can be saved from the path of destruction its current journey is embarked upon.

Today there are two forces in the world that threaten world stability today.These forces are represented by the good old United States of America, and maybe up to 90% of its citizens. The other power is represented by Israeli government and its people. Two factors make this the case. The first being “religion,” and the other being “guns.” If the world could somehow do away with both, maybe global destruction could be avoided. Religion causes so much prejudice, and hate it flat out should be outlawed. People seem to be nourished and energized by prejudice and hate. Which forces them to need “guns” in order to annihilate all opposition. Of course, such annihilation is masked in national sovereignty for self determination.

Such energized prejudice is what the conflict between Hezbollah and Israel is about. Hezbollah represents Lebanon’s the national interest of the Shiite population. And on the other side, the world faces the Judea-Christian war machine, Israel and the United States who are determined to annihilate the Muslim world. That is not to say that the converse is not true.

What to Expect at the Gas Pump

Analysts say each $1 increase in the price of a barrel of oil translates into an increase of about 2.4 cents in the price of a gallon of gasoline. That means this week’s $3 increase could show up as a 7 to 8 cents a gallon increase at the pump by the end of next week. Source: ST. Petersburg Times

Who is the blame for this, as fingers point to the suspected culprits. Mostly to Iran and Syria, when in reality it is Israel and the United States.

The United States has been exporting the notions of democracy, capitalism, and protestant Christianity around the globe. With a focus on the Middle East. The nations of that region have a different perspective on the subject matter. Never the less, the United States, refuses to show these nations any respect for their traditions concerning government, economics, and religion. Which has made the United States, far to many enemies.

Furthermore, the real reason for the United States presence in that area of the world is to take control of the rich oil fields of the Middle East. The United States differs from the rest of the world in two particular respects. The United States is the greatest consumer of oil. It is also the greatest debtor nation in the history of the world. In order to sustain itself. It must secure for itself the worlds oil reserves. Should the nation fail in this endeavor, its economy will collapse. In order to avoid such a catastrophe the United States must find ways to make war on other nations who can supply them with oil. This war machine has has caused the nation to become bankrupt. Forced to max out all its credit, then it must find additional ways to market the nation into greater debt.

People who are discovered with their hands in the “cookie jar” when those hands have been forbidden to be placed there. Sometimes they develop a bitter resolve. Knowing that they are going to suffer consequences, they become determined to destroy others around them. The United States has been found with its hands in the “cookie jar” of other sovereign nations. Always seeking to satisfy it own appetite as it pilfered the national resources of nation after nation. It is just to late for the United States to surrender to the consequences. So no matter what the cost to world stability. The United States has resolved to destroy the world community, if necessary, in order to satisfy it global hunger for oil and other resources that it needs.

It is not like the old days when Great Britain was the dominant world power. Always having its hands in the “cookie jar” of world affairs as it pilfered the worlds resources for its own benefit. Bragging that the sun never sat on its empire. Signaling its vast control of nations and world affairs. Great Britain, surely suffered the consequences as it was expelled from nation after nation. The explosion took longer and the weapons were not as sophisticated as those of today.

Today the the explosion the United States is not as certain because it has the largest and most sophisticated weaponry ever known to humanity. However, the opponents, while not having as many or as sophisticated weaponry system. Are never the less, a very formidable opponent. With the capability of beating the United States. However it will never occur because the United States will send the world up in flames before it is expelled from nation after nation.

Some how the people of Tampa Bay, and the nation, must resolve to find solutions at home that will reign in this horrific cast of terrorists in the White House and the Congress.

With absolute certainty, it is easier said than done, but it must be done. What is at stake, is our future, and the future of the world community. WE must refocus the national agenda, so that it reflects a different international agenda.

What powers the United States is money. This current administration just recently bragged about its huge windfall in tax revenues. So great was this windfall that this administration announced that it would be able significantly reduce the national debt and increase military spending. However the Congress was admonished to reduce spending on the public welfare so even more money could be spent on war.

The Houston Chronicle, reported that the wholesale price of a gallon of gasoline is $2.30. Which does not include taxes or retail markups. Because most Americans are hurting financially because so much of their money is being emptied into the gas tank. Somethings should not be for profit and gasoline is one of them. Instead of spending money on war, the government must divert that tax money back into America making gasoline affordable. It just nonsense that says it can not be done. That nonsense is capitalism. And capitalism is nonsense because it does not empower the the people economically. So the first thing We the people must do is change the nations economic system.

Desperate people will do desperate things. It just a matter of public desperation, How desperate are we as a people to secure for ourselves economic justice? It just a start in slowing down the great American war machine.

The next posting will take up a more difficult and controversial discussion. Something this writer has thinking about for along time.

Things Are As They Appear; After All

In this writers last posting a reality check was suggested because things are not always what they appear. Well it turns out that the opposite occurs also because some things really are as they appear.

A few day ago America celebrated its most important holiday; Independence Day. A day bursting with fire crackers, neighborhood, and family picnics. A great time for merry making. What Americans celebrate is far different from what their government celebrates.

For the United States government, it is a celebration of the surrender of freedom and liberty at home. To the absolute shame of Americans for allowing it to occur. It does not stop at our doorstep, but is perpetuated around the world. American troops dying in Iraq has nothing to do with exporting freedom, liberty,and democracy. And again, Americans are shamed because collectively, we refuse to end the slaughter of Americans in a land in which they do not belong, But the war has everything to do with capturing Iraqi oil fields, and other corporate interests. And nothing to do with liberty, freedom, and democracy.

So in the end, things really are as they appear.

America from its inception was never really about liberty, freedom, and democracy. The founding fathers new it was just sounded more exemplary more moral, and not as corrupting to sling such expressions as liberty, freedom, and democracy. Rather than an open admission that this infant nation was to be about wealth for the few at the expense of the many. Which means some things are what they appear to be, it just requires a reality check. And sure enough. it will be discovered that things are not what they appear to be.

The founding fathers worked hard to create this mirage of images reflecting illusions of liberty, freedom, and democracy. The trail of tears is endless in American history. Starting with the illegal taking of land from the indigenous people. To the declaration that human beings were the rightful property of others. That women were second class citizens because they were the property of their husbands. Again we see that things are what they appear to be which is the securing of money at the wrongful expense of others. Making some things not what they appear to be when it is about liberty, freedom, and democracy.

What other explanation could exist for the theft of land and property, or the notion that humans could be owned by others, or that women were the property of their husbands. It was all about economics! After all, how could an empire be built on some land owned by another people, People being owned by others made good economic sense. A free labor pool! And women, to the founding fathers had to be property for the purpose of child bearing and rearing. It all made economic sense.

The United States Constitution is first and for most an economic blueprint. This writer once took a course covering the Constitution as an economic document. One of the text books used was titled, “An Economic Interpretation Of The United States Constitution,” authored by Charles A. Beard. Great book, great course, but unfortunately the book is no longer in print. This writer hunted and hunted for that book years later. And found it among discarded books about to be burned.

To this day, the United States is about profits through out Tampa Bay, the nation, and around the world. The history books are filed with these truths. As are the shelves of the law libraries resulting from successful litigation’s, in behalf of indigenous people, slaves, and women.

And, the Unites States is not finished. Says the Army recruiter, boys and girls listen up! Sign up and end up in Iraq! Army life is tough. Your country is asking you to be prepared to sacrifice your life so a people far away can experience liberty, freedom, and democracy. That’s the America of appearances where things are not as they appear.

Because that Army recruiter should be saying. Boys and girls listen up,,, your country needs you to be prepared to sacrifice your life. So America can have control of the vast Iraqi oil fields. And American corporations can profit in the billions of dollars, from the reconstruction of Iraq. Which will include military bases for the launching of attacks upon other nations in the region, who refuse to bow to American supremacy.

So in the end things really are as they appear. It just takes a good reality check in order to sort through the vast, and sometimes confusing complexities of life. In the end though reality will prevail.

This whole freedom, liberty, and democracy thing is only a good for sell theft (indigenous lands) (mutilation of slaves) and (degradation of women) then. Now it is the theft of economic equality, the denial of opportunity, and women as objects. It is as things appear; about money. And the history books show this history. As do the law libraries, with case histories.

Sorry

When this writer posted. A Nurse from Iowa, 28 June 06, which some readers know, dealt with the First Amendment clauses of speech and assembly. At the end, a question was presented with an answer to follow with the next posting. Well, this writer did post that answer, 29 June 06, Both postings, brought an excellent response. However, by accident this writer deleted that posting, 01 July o6.

Because of the good responses from both postings and questions after the deletion concerning the promised answer. This writer is going to attempt to reconstruct that deleted posting.

However, this writer will continue to answer all email questions about the posting, A Nurse from Iowa. And of course, questions about any other postings.

This unfortunate deletion allows me to answer two questions. First, comments are closed because it eliminates spam. People with serious questions, and challenges to my postings send emails which guarantees their privacy. And it eliminates comments from people, who just want slander this writer. Only serious questions and challenges are answered. Lastly, some want only to comment and request a non reply, which is honored.

Concerning the second, yes, communications occur between this writer, and people form other countries.

Trusts this helps.

The Ass in the White House

An Ass once found a Lion’s skin which the hunters left out in the sun to dry. He put it on and went towards his native village. All fled at his appearance, both men and women. He was a proud Ass that day. In his delight he lifted up his voice and uttered the loud harsh cry of the donkey. Then everyone knew him. His owner came up and gave him a sound beating with a club for the fright he had caused.

And shortly afterwards a fox cane up a to him and said, “I knew you by your voice.

So it can be said, fine clothes may disguise, but silly words disclose a fool. Source: Fables of Aesop

And from the White House earlier today came a fine clothed man who ushered silly words lacking creditable substance, thus, accepting disclosure as a fool.

It was reported by Dubya that the American people are enjoying a strong economy. One that is delivering prosperity to working Americans. Dubya cited several reasons for his glowing report. First, the low rate of taxation upon American workers. Next, rising wages resulting from greater productivity of American workers. Lastly the creation of 5.3 million jobs since August 2003. That is more than all the twenty five nations of the European Union combined, reported the occupant of the oval office.

From Dubya’s, perspective things are getting even better. The economy is headed into summer on the fast track, reported Dubya. Saying one of the best ways to keep the momentum going is restrict spending in Washington, D.C. He asserted that Congress took an important step by passing his emergency spending bill. This according to the President Bush will allow him sufficient money to reek military havoc around the world. He put it this way, “The bill includes necessary funds for high priorities, such as equipping our military.” Need more be said?

Yes, because seeing reality from a donkey’s perspective is very different from the experiences of the American worker and consumer. Or, for that matter, the world community. If, we are to take seriously what we read in Dubya’s state controlled media

Congress needs to with hold funding for George W Bush’s criminal war. That should be the first step the Congress takes. Next, he should be removed from office, Then he should be turned over to the court of proper jurisdiction and prosecuted as a war criminal.

She’s from New York, and she is not H.C.

It has been said that people complain about the weather, but all that complaining will not change the weather. So, just sit back and make the best out of what the weather offers. For within one of those rain filled clouds is a silver lining. We know that without the rain, we would not have the beauty of the rainbow. And when it arrives, this rainbow will not allow us to sit back. But rather, it will propel us into action which may have been the design of Sara Jean Rohe.

So it is with politicians, people complain about them, but all that complaining does not change the political landscape. So the public for the most part, just sits back. Forced to endure the nasty storms. Unleashed against them through lies and deceit. Which is manifested through unfair, and sometimes ridicules legislation against the public interest.

Plenty of dark stormy looking clouds cover the horizon. Is it possible one or more of those threatening clouds has within it a silver lining? One as beautiful as natures rainbow? Could be! Yes, a most beautiful rainbow emerged from all those stormy rain clouds. This particular rainbow was in the form of a graduating senior from New School in New York City. Her name, Jean Sara Rohe, who had the opportunity to share her thoughts as part of the graduation ceremony. She had worked hard preparing herself for her five minute talk. But at the last minute, she set aside her notes. She decided to address the keynote speaker. Why? Maybe she understands the dark side of the Senator from Arizona. Most likely, she would say it differently and she did But no matter how it’s said, the argument would have a similar premise and conclusion.

The man of universal destruction, Senator John McCain, R-Az. Mr McCain, the wanna be President dating back to the election cycle of 2000. The war lord from a lost cause in Vietnam which cost the loss of many lives, both American and Vietnamese. With the people of Vietnam still suffering from American war crimes which resulted from years of unfounded military aggression and repeated napalm attacks. Seems that the Senator has not learned from his Vietnam experiences.

Today, he is engaged in another war. This war is with the Iraqi people. And again, both Americans, and Iraqis are forced to surrender their lives. Because of unfounded American aggression, and other deadly air born agents. Seems the Senator loves war and its chemical fallout. Caused him to throw his political muscle in support of his Nemesis in favor of war. Who also never saw a life he didn’t enjoy taking. And with such complicity, the Senator adds to his war crimes. Because he might as well be in Iraq pulling the trigger of every weapon that kills an Iraqi. He has the power, as a Senator to lead an opposition effort to end this war from within the chambers of the Senate. Never entered his mind, one suspects.

The Senator says he believes in God. And why not, his God believes in war. Seems his God never saw a life he didn’t enjoy taking, also. But he will learn to fear the Goddess Nemesis of Greek mythology. For she is, the Goddess retribution, justice, and vengeance. She will not be denied Her day in Court.

So, along comes a young goddess in the person hood of Jean Sara Rohe. She measured some justice in a scolding of the Senator by asserting. We are living in a time of violence, war and injustice… Senator, preemptive war is dangerous and wrong, that George Bush’s agenda in Iraq is not worth the many lives lost. And I know that despite all the havoc that my country has wrought overseas in my name, Osama bin Laden still has not been found nor have the weapons of mass destruction… Fear is the greatest impediment to the achievement of peace… We can speak truth to power. We can allow our humanity always to come before nationality… I speak through my nervousness, out of need to honor those voices that came before me, and I hope we graduates can all strive to do the same.

And at the end of the day, a magnificent rainbow was seen by most, except for the Senator and his Chief of Staff. His comments can be found at democracynow.org

Ms.Rohe’s entire speech can be read by going to democracynow.org.

Justce O’Connor

Most know that O’Connor was the first woman to serve on the nations highest court. This writer opposed her nomination, and confirmation to the peoples highest court in the peoples national capital. As time passed, court observers referred to the court as the O’Connor court because of her decisive vote. True to her tag as the “swing vote.” She propelled the current White House occupant to power, in the peoples house, with her decisive tie breaking swing vote. Her vote may go down in history as the vote that ended America’s experiment with democracy. For, George W. Bush, is marching this country toward imperial dictatorship. Far from the concepts of integrity, and a principled democracy.

Now some are asking, why did Justice Sandra Day O’Connor resign from the Court? Was it because, she was mentally exhausted from the pressure of being the “swing Vote” on so many delicate and highly charged issues? Or, was it because she was privately threatened? Did she retire because she feared for her life? Maybe someone provided her with a copy of the fictional book, Pelican Brief, where two supreme court justices were mysteriously murdered, and she decided to hang up her robes. Rather than risk the fulfillment of a fictional tale.

She must have known that, John G. Roberts, was no admirer of free speech and assembly. He is on record as saying, that he was disgusted with the speech, and assembly practices of those opposed to the Vietnam war; as a college student. He claims that free speech and assembly were the driving factors for his conservative leanings. She surely knew her replacement would work and vote to undo her efforts to maintain the status quo of American jurisprudence.

Suddenly, out of retirement, she appears at Georgetown University to address an audience of lawyers. There she allegedly droped some hints that America was headed for a dictatorship under George W. Bush with the support of his congressional allies in the senate and house. According to O’Connor, this march to a dictatorship is helped along the path by the power and political influence of the nations corporate oligarchy. Allegedly because the press was not invited. With the exception of Nina Totenberg, from National Public Radio. Justice O’Connor has refused to release any published accounts of her speech. It seems that everything about her lecture is speculation. Sure creates a lot of curiosity as to why the secrecy? Seems that is the way a closed society works. Maybe Justice O’Connor prefers a closed society. Perhaps she is only opposed to a closed society based on the religious instincts of Delay and Sen.John Cornyn and Sen Bill Frist. After all her, political mentor Ronald Reagan was no admirer of a free speech and assembly.

Victory in defeat

Colombia, a country under constant terror by paramilitary gangs, and supported by its newly elected second term president. A country faulted for unchecked terror by Amnesty International. The citizens of Colombia have suffered sudden disappearances never to be seen again, massacres of its people, and indiscriminate detention without formal charges of crimes committed. And above all, this Colombian President is the master governor of state sanctioned oppression. A President who enjoys the full support of the government of George W. Bush. As recent as, May 2006, Amnesty International has demanded that the Colombian government bring a halt to the nations paramilitary activity.

While Colombians are attempting to free themselves from the strangle hold of tyranny Americans in the Tampa Bay community, and through out the nation appear content to see their nation slowly slip into a state of tyranny. Their are some disturbing parallels between life in Colombia and the United States.

Yet such a government wins the praise and support of this current American government. Condoleeza Rice high ranking government official of the Bush administration, and likely 2008 presidential candidate. Quickly congratulated the Colombian president upon his reelection. She referred to Colombia as a state where free, fair, and secure elections occur. A claim denied by Amnesty International and other bodies. Rice went on to say that the American relationship with Colombia and its people is genuine and close. Because both countries agree that “open societies” and “free markets,”serve the best interest of the people. (open societies and free markets will be addressed in another posting.)

In reality, Colombia, serves American corporate greed because of its potential for profit. It also serves as a lunching point for destabilizing other countries in the region like Venezuela and Bolivia both with governments critical of the United States. Destabilizing other countries in the region. may well be the reason Colombia is so rich in American tax dollars. Only two other countries get more money in foreign aid. They are Israel and Egypt.

There are forces determined to end Colombian terror against Colombians, and the destabilization of other countries in the region. For instances, in Colombia the people formed a peaceful coalition, The Alternative Democratic pole.This coalition consisted ordinary employees living from one paycheck to the next. Women, who bear much of the work and responsibility for the survival of their families. Students who want a future without fear of government supported paramilitary. Who reek havoc upon those who exercise free speech ans assembly. These groups were joined by supportive clergy who often provide shelter for Colombians terrorized citizens.

These Colombians chose to support the candidacy of Senator Carlos Gavira. A law professor and former President of the Constitutional Tribunal. A tribunal committed to bringing to justice violators of human rights.

The candidacy of Senator Gavira captured more than 20% of the vote. While the winner, received a little more than 60% of the vote. You have heard it said, “not everything is as it appears.” In the Colombian election cycle the scenario “not everything is as it appears” plays out as follows, Senator Carlos Gavira won! The Senator captured more than two and a half million votes. Which were gained, despite severe terror, and oppression. It also marks the first time that a grass root movement placed second in a national election. Replacing the liberal or conservative parties who usually alternate as holders of the presidency. With one of the two placing second in national elections. A peoples movement prevailed giving them hope for the future. They are energized into believing that they can get sufficient support from the more than 50% of the eligible voters who did not vote. Enabling The Alternative Democratic pole to slowly but surely capture control of the government.

U.S. Supreme Court rules against public interest

In a case decided,Tuesday, May 30, 2006, Garcetti v Caballos, two prosecutors squared of in the hallowed halls of the peoples highest court. Prosecutor Richard Ceballos was asked to investigate misconduct by the police as to whether the police misrepresented the facts on a search warrant. He concluded that such misconduct had indeed occurred. He advised the District Attorney for the City of Los Angeles not proceed with the criminal prosecution. His recommendation was ignored, and he was removed from the prosecution team. Eventually, prosecutor Ceballos testified for the defense.

Prosecutor Richard Ceballos experienced the harsh hammer of his employer. Which forced him, to seek relief through the federal courts. There he encountered differing rulings. Consequently, his case reached the nations highest court which ruled against him and the public interest. The public needs to know when their servants misbehave while conducting public business at public expense.Honorable employees should not be punished for serving the public interest by exposing misdeeds. The public has a right to know that such public servants will be protected by the courts. Which this current court, under John Roberts is incapable of doing. What will the nations people do about such an inept court?

Unfortunately, for the people of Tampa Bay and the nation. The peoples court in the nations capital has lost its perspective of people directed jurisprudence. With huge legislative bodies and powerful executives the people have little chance to prevail with their grievances without the intervention of the courts. The United States Supreme Court has abandoned its obligation to,We the People, there primary obligation.

This is how attorney, Bonnie Robin-Vegeer, for Public Citizens Litigation group summed up the court’s decision.This ruling means… public health and safety will be compromised if public employees who perceive corruption feel chilled when exposing such behavior. The people who are best able to expose such misconduct will have no recourse from retaliation without the Court’s constitutional protections. The consequences for the public will be grave, said lawyer Vegeer.

This ruling is clearly against the interest of the public. Senator Nelson of Florida voted to confirm both John Roberts and Samuel Alito who joined the court’s majority against the people. This writer mentions Nelson because he is up for reelection in November. Hopefully the people of Florida will defeat him for helping to perpetuate such an injustice.

The Da Vinci Code

This writer is enjoying the controversy circling the globe over the showing of the movie, The DA Vinci Code. After all, it is only a work of fiction. But like many works of fiction it is possible to weave truth with fictional story telling to heighten the plot. Seems that Dan Brown has successfully accomplished that task. Some Christians have responded by suggesting that Christians should not allow the movie to be shown in local theaters. The justification for such behavior is that they think limits must exist. As to how low, one can stoop in offending the religious sentiments of Christians. But of course, if there is truth blended into a fictional story. It could greatly weaken the Christian church. Weaken but not destroy the church because enough people cling to superstition to continue its hoax.

Just to touch on a couple of topics that should infuriate Christians before focusing on the The DA Vinci Code, by Brown. Consider the saga of Enron which ended in convictions of CEO’s Ken Lay and Jeff Skilling. In the after dust of the guilty pronouncements, Ken Lay gathered his family and friends around himself. Then in the peoples house of justice prayed. One of the assaults upon the book, and the movie is that it is sacrilegious, according to many Christians. What could be more sacrilegious than a convicted felon offering up a prayer of praise and protection. If anything Lay should have offered a prayer of repentance for his sins against humanity. Unfortunately, that charade goes unnoticed by far to many Christians thus showing the irrelevancy of Christianity. ( Do you know that offering prayers to Christ amounts to idle chatter by the petitioner.) Or consider the current occupant in the peoples house in the nations capital. Who openly pronounces himself to be a Christian, but is responsible for the many deaths on both sides of the fence as the Iraqi conflict rages. Who refuse to acknowledge the validity of our constitutional system or international law. Christian churches should be united in the demand for his impeachment, and his trial as a war criminal. Failure of the Church to act repeats the irrelevancy of Christianity. The power of the Church is found in defence of the people. Not in the support this American government which uses Christianity to herd Christians like brainless sheep afraid of their own shadow. Furthermore, for those Christian purest who are offended by The DA Vinci Code. Neither the Gnostic writings nor the writings found in the King James version of Christianity supports a bedroom relationship between the modern church and government. As a matter of fact, Christ was at constant opposition to the government. And if Christians think hard enough, they’ll recall Christ did not find favor with his religious community. So relax and attempt to sort out the truth from the fiction in The DA Vinci Code.

To some Christians, author Dan Brown has crossed the line. To others, like this writer, revolutionary clergyman, and legal consultant from the Tampa Bay community. Who has patterned his ministry after some great theologians like Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Oscar Romero, and Malcolm X. From the political arena, a devout admirer of Karl Marx, Fidel Castro, and Hugo Chavez. This writer plans to post some writings to honor these men on the anniversary of their births.Because each in their own way, likely would find the truths in Brown’s fictional work that is so up setting to the Christian community.

The DA Vinci Code helps expose Christianity for the hoax that it represents because it weaves truth with fiction. Done with hints from the Gnostic Gospels which bare as much if not more truth than the writings of the King James Bible. For instance, Mary Magdalene as sexual companion and adviser to Jesus. For some reason, such a notion is repulsive to many modern day Christians.In the Gospel of Mary it is reported that Jesus loved her… kissed her on the mouth. Then in time if confusion and fear the students of Christ were afraid to carry out the mission of Christ. It was Mary, who pulled the students together and gave them courage to carry out the mission of Christ.

Consumer fix for gas at the pump

In Florida, if you want to fill up a 15 gallon gas tank, at $2.90. You will spend $25.80. From that amount of money, $8.40 is the cost of production, and $.75 for distribution. The gas station owner makes $1.35 on that fill up. The Fed’s, state, and county collect $7.20 in taxes. The question is how can the consumer redraw that picture?

Consumers must organize and pressure the Fed’s, state, and county to eliminate all taxes on gasoline. $17.80 is a lot better than $25,80. The oil industry that earns billions in profits, and spends millions justifying their profits. They can easily assume the tax burden. Oh! their screaming will echo of the four corners of the globe. Let them scream because they will make the adjustment. After all, consumers have make all kinds of adjustments just to survive.

The next step is to make the Federal government nationalize the oil industry. That means making it illegal to make a profit on natural resources. It’s a resource owned by everybody.Like the air we breath, and the sunshine we need. And, nobody should profit from a naturally occurring resource. It should be shared, freely. Make no mistake, if the air, and sun could be contained. It would be sold and taxed.

Then with a nationalized oil industry the federal government would be the employer.They would pay these oil executives a fair wage for a days work. What these executives claim workers are worth, who have made them rich, and selfish. Blind to the suffering and hardship of the ordinary worker.

Under this scheme, based upon the first paragraph. You would pay $8.40 + $.75 + $1.35 = $10.40, for 15 gallons of gas, instead of $25,80. Bet that would put a smile on your face through out our Tampa Bay community. Slight adjustments would have to made for other states because figures were used for Florida.

In the beginning of our nation’s history we had the right idea. If you review the Preamble to our Constitution, you will read. “We the people…. In order to form a more perfect union… insure domestic Tranquility… promote the general Welfare… ordain and establish this Constitution of the United States.”When domestic tranquility and the general welfare is disturbed, it becomes the responsibility of the people to make the necessary corrections. It seems rather apparent that our domestic tranquility and general welfare has been up rooted by exurbanite profits, and wages in the hundred of thousands of dollars daily. So, are the people up to the task? Remember the main purpose of government, at home is to provide for domestic tranquility, and our general welfare. Seems that Sam in D.C. has got it all wrong. Sam seems to think that their function is enslave the many and enrich the few.

In Baghdad with George W. Shrub

There is a buffoon in the White House in the nations capital. Affectionately referred to as shrub. You see, Mr Shrub in many ways fills the description of a shrub. It’s kind of a woody plant lacking height. In our Mr Shrub, we have a human who lacks intelligence as a factor of height. Like the plant form of a shrub. D.C’s shrub has several stems. It’s stems seem to be growths that direct it’s actions. Stems like corporate America, lobbyists, and the religious right. In order to be a bush you have to have a trunk in the plant world. In the human world you got have some sense of decency to be a bush. Which is totally lacking in Dubya, or among its stems.

This trio now has the United States government’s building an embassy in Iraq. It will be the largest in the world. When completed, it will have 21 buildings. Spanning 104 acres right next door to the the Iraqi government complex. This American embassy will be a city unto itself with it own defense force, electricity, and water supply. Americans stationed there will not have to leave the complex because it will have stores selling civilian clothing. Including entertainment and restaurant facilities. Even dealerships for the purchase of American cars built everywhere except in America. Why it will have such state of the art facilities that it will exceed living standards, and conditions experience by many American service people when they lived here in the states.

It must just thrill all you hard working people who come home after a hard days work. Knowing that you were under paid and over taxed. To discover such a massive complex being built in Iraqi at your expense and without your permission. Seems to this writer that the American people keep telling that trio to close shop and come home.

This writer does not have to reiterate the lies, and deceit fostered upon the nation and the world concerning the Iraqi war. As time has marched on the nation, and the world has discover the true intent and purpose of the war. Capture rich Iraqi oil fields, create military bases to strike other nations in the region, like Iran with its rich oil field and other natural resources. So now it’s understandable why that trio of stems needs such a massive embassy. The war machine will operate from that American complex with easy strike capabilities any where in the region.

The attack on Iran has been launched.France and Britain have crafted a resolution. It offers Iran an ultimatum. Teheran must end all nuclear efforts. This draft resolution is based upon chapter 7 of the UN charter. Should the security council support the resolution, and Iranians fail to comply. Then the nation could face compulsory sanctions which would include military force.

It should be obvious that Iran is not a threat to our nation. Nor would they be a threat to the region. Because Pakistan, India, and Israel have nuclear weapons. The three countries are all friendly with the United States. Which should be a concern to all Iranians, and the world community. After all Iran, does not have a history of over throwing an American government. Which can not be said for the United States, remember the U.S. toppled the government of Iran. Installing a puppet regime which was infamous for its oppression and torture of the Iranian people. Then in 1979 the Iranians revolted and ended the reign of Shaw Reza Pahlevi. Since then the U.S has had absolutely no influence in Iran. The two nations do not even have diplomatic relations even after all these years.

The Middle East is very volatile, and with and unstable regime in Washington calling the shots for the world community. With Iran having powerful allies in Russia and China. The world could be seeing the beginning of W.W. Three, and vision of poet Robert Frost materialize. So in the end it does not matter if you live in our Tampa Bay community, or in Teheran, Iraq. Frost holds with those who favor fire for world demise

What’s sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander

If there is one subject that ignites fury through out the population, it’s the subject of taxation. Yet for some reason the populace is unable or unwilling to turn the table on the tax collectors.This posting should be read in conjunction with yesterdays posting. Because only you, can bring about the necessary change, from unfair government tax shifts.

A new company based in Delray Beach, Florida will launch its business later this year. Day Jet airlines is yet to purchase any airplanes. But they have successfully persuaded legislators to exempt them from any sale tax up to one million dollars for the purchase of a airplanes every year. According to the state, this good for business. Because it generate jobs and consumers will more than make up for the lost revenue from sale tax’s. This tax exemption did not even receive a hearing before the appropriate legislative committee. Even after a state senator requested a hearing. These senators are supposed to be sensitive to the concerns of senators we send to represent us. They got this notion that we put them in office to do as they please. Florida is famous for this sort of thing.

There is little prospect that such practices will stop. Probably because most consumers are just to busy with multiple responsibilities. Like more than on job. The state understands that low wages forces people to work two and three jobs. Florida wages are the lowest in the country. It’s jobless rate is also the lowest. Lots of money is generate for business while employees struggle with very little money. All this Leaves little or no time for efforts to get government to serve the public interest, and not just the business interest through out the state.

You know all that dreaded junk mail that most hate receiving. Well expect tons more. Because the legislature has decided to exempt junk mailers from sale tax’s. Again the theory being people will sort through that junk. Then rush to purchase advertised items. Off setting the lost tax revenues. Good for business not god for the consumer.

There are many ways to bring about desired change. These range from tax relief to reduced cost of gasoline. Including increased wages. No American citizen worker should should be paid less than $20,000. annually. Consumers must remember that we out number the legislature and all other branches of government. This includes all corporate executives.Meaningful change requires two ingredients. The first being desire and the second being “know how.” Desire this writer can not provide, but “know how”well that’s a different elusive bird. Which is learn able, if it comes with desire, or perhaps desperation. Desperation most certainly works best. That’s from experience and the text book.

Few have mastered or understand the power of the boycott. It’s a very useful tool that has many varied applications.Want needs to be accomplished is a shifting of the tax burdens from workers / consumers back to big business and corporate America. Most citizens should not have to pay income taxes. Nor should they have to pay sales tax’s and other burdensome taxes. This should be the burden of the business community and corporate America. Exxon / Mobile and other oil conglomerates need to bear much more of a tax responsibility. There is no reason it should not be that way. It’s just a matter of citizen efforts. The boycott is a good and useful tool.

The tale of the flying ladder and $4 billion

It’s to bad the government does not practice what it demands from the people, personal responsibility. Across the state 25 claims wait for state settlement In each case a judge or jury has awarded the victim a some of money.However, if the judgment exceeds two hundred thousand dollars the Florida legislature must approve the award. Sometime ago this writer wrote about a 17 year old girl from Ft.Lauderdale who was trying to get her settlement approved by the legislature. For those of you interested type Minouche Noel, in the find tab and you can read that posting. She is one of the 25 still waiting for legislative resolution. The state just can not openly refuse to pay these claims. Because state agencies have admitted to fault, and courts have issued judgements. Instead they choose to remain silent and take no action.

Here is another case waiting resolution by the sunshine state. A women was driving on I-75. She lost her live in a freak accident. A ladder was hurled into the air from a state vehicle. The driver attempted to avoid the impact of the flying ladder and crashed into the car driven by Sherri Aversa. She died, and a state agency admitted to fault. This agency agreed to pay a judgement to the victim’s husband. That was seven years ago! The state refuses to do the responsible thing and pay the judgement. Those creeps are so brazen that they refuse even to discuss the claim. It’s a very small claim ($700,000.) for a young women who lead a very productive life. It’s so despicable that the people of Tampa Bay and the entire state should throw this bunch of goons out of the state capital. Which includes Jeb the white house puppet who recently went to Iraq to justify the death young American men and women. Who also remains silent on these judgements.

What we really in Tallahassee and though out the nation is a bunch of elitists career politicians. They talk and demand personal responsibility for everyone but themselves.These politicans are self centered. Corrupted by power and greed.They are leading this nation down the sure path of distruction. The personal cares and needs of hard working Americans remain neglected. Just like the just compensation each and everyone of those 25 victims deserves.

It’s not that state does not have the money because Florida enjoys a $4 billion budget surplus. How about contacting your legislator and demand the full payment of these claims While your at it why not demand some immediate relief at the gas pump.
