Hi folks.

This is not a rant. It’s not me venting.  The world is getting fucking hard for people like me. They are down here in fucking Florida reviewing my disability while every week I’m ignoring signs I should go back to the hospital so I can keep working on this website.

I have loved doing this website but honestly, I can’t do it anymore. A hundred hours a week of research and writing every week and putting myself on their list and for what? This past donation drive netted less than $57 and that was with the monthly recurring donations.

You guys have been good to me over the years and I hope I have provided something that was worth it in the end. But honestly, I gotta figure out something else. I’m not selling male vitality pills like Di$info or subscriptions like that other chick.. I just write what I write.

I gotta focus on something else at this point. Something that can help me pay bills like everyone else. Drafting or something.

I thank you all for the years you helped me do this. But honestly, I just can’t afford the time anymore. I’ll be homeless in 4 months or so. So I have to do something else.

Some Clarity From ObamaGod on Memorial Day

 

Remember This on Memorial Day: They Didn’t Fall, They Were Pushed

by Ray McGovern

How best to show respect for the U.S. troops killed in Iraq and Afghanistan and for their families on Memorial Day? Simple: Avoid euphemisms like “the fallen” and expose the lies about what a great idea it was to start those wars and then to “surge” tens of thousands of more troops into those fools’ errands.

First, let’s be clear on at least this much: the 4,500 U.S. troops killed in Iraq – so far – and the 2,350 killed in Afghanistan – so far – did not “fall.” They were wasted on no-win battlefields by politicians and generals – cheered on by neocon pundits and mainstream “journalists” – almost none of whom gave a rat’s patootie about the real-life-and-death troops. They were throwaway soldiers.

Harry Reid Calls Fast Track and Trade Deals ‘Insanity’ (It’s not. It’s treason)

(Calling this “insanity” insinuates the proponents of such legislation are misguided or simply not looking at the facts. Truth is, they know exactly what they are doing and why. It’s not insanity to sell out to the billionaire class who stand to profit from this. It’s not insanity to sell out the sovereignty of the nations involved when Big Business wants control. These people aren’t insane. They’re traitors. It’s that simple)

from Huffington Post

… The much-maligned North American Free Trade Agreement of the 1990s covered about 10 percent of the word’s trade, and Reid said that deal and many since have all been disastrous for American workers, costing millions of jobs.

“It causes huge job losses,” Reid said. “As Einstein said, you keep doing the same thing over and over again, and you expect a different result, that’s the definition of insanity.”

“We can look at these trade bills over the years — every one of them without exception causes to American workers job losses. Millions of job losses,” Reid added. “But yet they’re going to try the same thing again and hope for a different result. That’s insanity.”

Bad Apple: 5 Ways the Computer Giant is Plundering America

(yes, ladies and gents, corporate socialism made the biggest success story free-market capitalism has to offer. Your tax dollars paid for their start-up R&D. Your tax dollars pay for their current R&D. And your tax dollars pay for the taxes they aren’t required to pay.)

from AlterNet

1. Apple Took Years of Public Research, Integrated the Results, and Packaged it As Their Own

“describe 12 major technologies that have their roots in government research, including memory and hard disks, displays, cellular technology, GPS, and all the Internet protocols. Much of it came from the Department of Defense, the Department of Energy, NASA, the Air Force, and other U.S. agencies”

2. Even After Taking Our Research, Apple Does Everything in its Power to Avoid Taxes

“Apple recently announced that its overseas, untaxed cash hoard, currently about $157 billion, is expected to reach $200 billion by 2017.”

3. Overcharging Customers 

“The manufacturing cost of a 16 GB iPhone 6 is about $200, and with marketing it comes to about $288. But without an expensive phone contract with Verizon, AT&T, or one of the other wireless carriers, the cost to the customer is at least $650.”

4. Underpaying and Mistreating Employees

In response to criticisms of Apple, Rand Paul advised us to “apologize to Apple and compliment them for the job creation they’re doing.”

5. Apple Has Figured Out How to Spend Most of its Untaxed Money on Itself 

Apple’s ever-growing $.7 trillion stock market value is spread among relatively few Americans. The richest 10% own 91 percentof U.S. stocks.
