What Are We Doing in America?

worth a quick look
. Okay, a 9 minute look. I lived through the 60s and 70s and saw many such things. There was always "allowable" force by the police or National Guard. I look at the riots in Britain that happened recently and know they were not much different than the Detroit or Hough riots (look up causes and see jobs and finances and affordable housing) of my youth. I am convinced Arab Spring will make it to the US and this is the start of it. Will the upholders of the law be different than Syria? or Yemen?

I have not made many political posts lately. Obama has been a little center right for my tastes. and the last two Republican debates have really bothered me. I have seen cheers for executions and shouts of "Let Him Die!" about a theoretical man who is in a coma. My heart is very heavy because what claims to be a Christian society has become so bloodthirsty. I expect public hangings and beheadings as entertainment. Sarcastically, maybe we could pay off the debt by charging admission. Pride in having someone executed who may be not guilty. Yes, governor Perry, it takes balls to do that. Especially when you ask someone ELSE to do the deed. I would be more impressed if you went in, knife in teeth and did it yourself. Heartbreaking we Americans have become such a vile bunch. I am surprised that Vlad the Impaler T-shirts, replete with heads on posts, are not in fashion. There is a blood lust that is amazing. In those who say they are Christians, no less. Please read the New Testament.

And on other subjects, I see Swiss Bank lost $2B to a rogue trader. If he made money, would he still be rogue? and they had him arrested. So, the bank post a loss, and they have the guy arrested. Yet, in the States, the banks post a loss and Bush bails them out. They don't lose jobs, they get bonuses and Americans lose their 401ks, homes and jobs. and no arrests. It is maddening. And we have no aid for these people. Even more maddening is that banksters compensation can be taken at a later date through futures and the sale of stock is taxed at a lower rate, if at all. and we wonder why there is a debt. Did you notice there is no regulations yet passed to prevent this from happening again? I was a small business man and scratch my head. Easy when you play with the money of others.

Finally, teh Boner says job creators are waiting for a better climate as they have lost confidence. In what, America? They are creating jobs overseas easily enough. Maybe if we lowered the minimum wage to $2/day they would come back. You mean all the tax loopholes they have is not enough? Face it, the job creators are right here in our towns. Small to medium family run businesses. They can't get credit to expand. Large multi-nationals just care about the bottom line. They can move to another country, just as Halliburton did (and yet they still get defense contracts in opposition to the Buy American law that is on the books--Roosevelt passed it.)

Reflections on a Regressive Debate

I was driving last night and listened to the Regressive debate on the radio. Oh, how I wish I was somewhere where I could have live-blogged. But, what was actually scary to me, really scary, was the applause Rick Perry got as he explained the Texas approach to capital punishment. It was a visceral response where the blood lust of the audience could be felt. This is humanity?
