WAL MART - C-RAT Corporate Real American Terrorist 5

Barry, My Liege :

WAL MART earns its terrorist designation on Black Friday for the most prosaic of reasons : its business model minimizes costs by maximizing the external costs to the community and world at large in the name of higher Earnings Per Share.

In a study by the Center for Community Planning and Development at Hunter College and THE PUBLIC ADVOCATE FOR THE CITY OF NEW YORK, Bill de Blasio dated January 2010, WAL MART was found to be a poor corporate citizen and a danger to the Economic National Security of the United States of America. Here is the URL for the study :

The study found that : " Wal-Mart’s formula for financial success includes: low-wage labor, limited health benefits, and leveraging of government subsidies.......Wal-Mart depresses area wages and labor benefits contributing to the current decline of good middle class jobs, pushes out more retail jobs than it creates, and results in more retail vacancies....Wal-Mart store openings kill three local jobs for every two they create by reducing retail employment by an average of 2.7 percent in every county they enter...Wal-Mart has thousands of associates who qualify for Medicaid and other publicly subsidized care, leaving taxpayers to foot the bill. For instance in Ohio Wal-Mart has more associates and associate dependents on Medicaid than any other employer, costing taxpayers $44.8 million in 2009...."

These alone are indictment enough but do not represent the entire negative impact on people.

Indicating their global spread, here's a quote from the WAL MART Watch 2005 Annual Report [available here -] :

"...In 2000, the National Labor Committee found workers at the Qin Shi Handbag Factory in Zhongshan, China earning 3 cents an hour working 14-hour shifts, 7 days a week, 30 days a month. Forty-six percent of the workers earned nothing at all and were actually in debt to the company. They were housed 16 to a room and subjected to physical and verbal abuse...."

The tragedy here is most of these practices are legal. The illegal practices are conducted through bribery.

My Liege, it is clear that continuing this business model will result in harm to the United States of America.

Please write a letter to one of the Board members, especially if you work at WAL MART as one of their 2.7 million associates - 1.4 million in the USA.

POTUS - [G-RAT] Government Real American Terrorist 4

Barry, My Liege :

As POTUS, you carry a duty to protect the values and laws which make us unique among nations. Our Constitution enshrined those laws which protect us from a tyrannical government.

But, My Liege, you and your predecessors have systematically destroyed our protections against arbitrary actions by your government.

Your office has earned the 'Terrorist' designation by destroying those protections. Since your office is at the pinnacle of our governmental structure, your office or person is not required to benefit personally from your actions to earn that designation.

It is sufficient that the actions of your office strike at the heart of the Constitution.

Here is a quote from a posting in this space dated January 12, 2012 :

'Only through established processes and laws can Americans be free. Without those processes and laws, then we are simply subjects of a King and slaves to his whims. We are not citizens.

The Founding Fathers knew first-hand what it is like to live under a regime with no laws and no controls. They chose to die fighting rather than to live under that system.

And, Barry, your administration has completed the installation of an arbitrary and potentially despotic Kingship in the USA.

You have made us into slaves subject to your whims.

It does not matter at all that these actions were taken in the name of protecting us from terrorists.

The taking of these actions has given victory to the terrorists. And Barry, you did it.

The specific actions you have taken were described by George Washington University Professor Jonathan Turley in a recent article in the Washington post titled “10 reasons the U.S. is no longer the land of the free”.

Here is a list of the actions as taken from a piece by Boris Volkhonsky in the Voice of Russia; read it here:

" 1. Assassination of U.S. citizens – “President Obama has claimed, as President George W. Bush did before him, the right to order the killing of any citizen considered a terrorist or an abettor of terrorism.” He also notes that countries such as Nigeria, Iran and Syria have been routinely criticized by the U.S. for extrajudicial killings of enemies of the state.

2. Indefinite detention – under the National Defense Authorization Act, terrorism suspects are to be held by the military; the president also has the authority to indefinitely detain citizens accused of terrorism. Here the U.S. finds itself in the company of often-criticized Cambodia. Even no less criticized China has recently codified a more limited detention law for its citizens.

3. Arbitrary justice– the president now decides whether a person will receive a trial in the federal courts or in a military tribunal (the way it is done in China and Egypt).

4. Warrantless searches – the president may order warrantless surveillance, including a new capability to force companies and organizations to turn over information on citizens’ finances, communications and associations (similar laws exist in Saudi Arabia and Pakistan).

5. Secret evidence – the government routinely uses secret evidence to detain individuals and employs secret evidence in federal and military courts.

6. War crimes– in 2009, Obama administration said that it would not allow CIA employees to be investigated or prosecuted for such actions as waterboarding terrorism suspects which amounts to torture and crimes against humanity. Other countries that resist independent investigations of similar war crimes include Iran, Syria and China.

7. Secret court – the government has increased its use of the secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court and the administration has asserted the right to ignore congressional limits on such surveillance. Similar Pakistan surveillance under the unchecked powers of the military or intelligence services exists in Pakistan.

8. Immunity from judicial review – the Obama administration has successfully pushed for immunity for companies that assist in warrantless surveillance of citizens, blocking the ability of citizens to challenge the violation of privacy (similar practice is common for China).

9. Continual monitoring of citizens – the Obama administration has the right to monitor every move of targeted citizens without securing any court order or review. Similar massive surveillance systems exist in Saudi Arabia and Cuba.

10. Extraordinary renditions – the government now has the ability to transfer both citizens and noncitizens to another country under a system known as extraordinary rendition, which has been denounced as using other countries, such as Syria, Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Pakistan, to torture suspects."

The laws which you have enacted give absolute life and death power to the President of the United States over any citizen for any reason.

While I might trust you, I surely do not trust a Newt Gingrich or a Rick Perry or a Mitt Romney with that power.

But, it is not about trust. It is about laws and freedom.

I am willing to die fighting to protect my freedom from the arbitrary power of you, Barry Obama.

I do not support a country where a private company can corrupt a government so that a war is fought to make that private company richer.

Under your laws, that can happen with no challenge. And, if I speak out, you can have me killed in order to protect those profits.

It is NOT acceptable and it IS worth fighting and dying to overthrow, just as we did in 1776.

Your subject, and not liking it.'

Idiot Bankers - Do NOT Rescue Them

Barry, My Liege :

Well, well, well.

Looks like our esteemed bankers have just lost the paper ownership records of EVERYTHING in the flood.

And, My Liege, they don't even know what is missing. We can be pretty sure it will be many billions of dollars.

There is one thing certain : They will ask taxpayers to make them whole.

We should NOT do that.

They are big boys. That's one reason they have capital - to cushion us from their mistakes.

Here is a cut and paste URL to the story :

Perhaps it is time for bankers to grow up.
