Having followed the events of that time closely including attending local events of my own city's occupy I am reminded of how much of the country dissed the occupiers, including many of my friends and many on this site, as something less than pond scum. Including, but not limited to, cheering on the head bashers.

Many then as many now, still locked in the liberal vs conservative meme. Discounting the fact that the Kleptocracy uses that meme to keep us divided. Other than that, it is no longer applicable. Both liberals and conservatives will dip into the cookie jar when it suits their will, ideologie be damned.

Cheering on the wholescale country wide suspension of individual rights and liberties and suppression of the constitution because, well, they just did not like "those people".

Instead of using the events to pull rusty dusty rifles stored in closets for the "right time". They once again coward as they have during the many numerous "right times", e.g. 2008, bank bailouts, Patriot act and it's cousins passage, Holder's declaration that Banks are beyond the law, etc.

Which among other things has led to my oft stated contention here that those who say sooner or later we with the guns will rectify this shit are whistling past the graveyard. Which of course now with drones and even the smallest towns swat teams decked out like delta force is a fantasy.

Banzai7 your art work is masterful in that it is not only visually stunning but stimulates thought and sends important messages. IF only you could figure out to make your work stimulate action you would go down in history as the greatest artist ever. THen again, you may yet. Thanks for the reminder.

A very sorry episode which I am not going to forget because as far as I am concerned it marked the end of the First Amendment. It's ok to chatter and banter, but if you want to assemble and make a noise that gets heard, you better stay on the fucking curb so they can beat the shit out of you regardless.

That is what Big Sister helped coordinate. And the NSA helped her spy on the so called trouble makers. If you disagree with your government you are a latent terrorist, primed for radicalization.

Right-o.  It was very disturbing to hear friends of mine who are getting thoroughly fucked by the system sitting there bad-mouthing the people with the balls to protest it.

Occupy was misguided, but shit at least they were doing SOMETHING.

the big challenge is just who they let in, the system is under pressure, more (white?) parents spend a lot of money, and their kids spend a lot of time cloistered away trying to get perfect grades only to get rejected so that a minority quota (or balance as they call it) can be filled.

so to balance the system they raised tuition to a point where those minority quotas end up with so much debt that indentured servitude is a mild approbation. to end up right back at the ivy school problem where the sons of (a) the r(b)i(t)ch(es), the kerrys and bushes and gores all go there to get Cs, and then later go on to run the country.

UC is a science and research franchise, and still mostly independent, the profs don't wear corporate logos or drive rolling Nascar ads (yet). and raising their fees the way they have, should never have to sell out to anyone. (but they have pensions to fund as well) and a couple of med schools to grind out technicians to fill the needs of obamacare which is just an industry trick to sell people something they don't need. on the back of private debt, which is the old machiavellian twist : private debt public good

US navy tests new drone attack aircraft
Last updated: 11 July 2013
.." "It's not often that you get a chance to see the future, but that's what we got to do today," said Navy Secretary Ray Mabus.

The X-47B aircraft has a 3,200km range and the ability to carry the equivalent of two guided bombs, the stealthy X-47B raises the prospect an autonomous, long-range, radar-evading, unmanned strike aircraft.

It will be superseded by a new robot jet capable of reconnaissance and strike missions to be deployed aboard carriers within six years. Navy commanders insist that it will only fire its weapons on the command of a human.
comment: "..on the command of a human." what does that signify? nothing

see, imagine what would have happened here if computers
were calling the shots rather than "humans". there might
have been an accident or a war crime committed, or worse.
more innocent people might have been executed.
b. manning , was he calling the shots here? I suppose
many feel safer knowing he is in court facing charges
stemming from the revelation of this incidental slaughter.

I like your art but the nazis don't exist anymore. Totalitarism, fanatism, warmongering are used by the new powers wich are by now globalist, statist, Human Rights. Putting swastikas to describe dictatorship is just an intellectual fraud. The new targets are the U.N. symbols, NWO, One World Governement, global currency, the universal égalitarism, pyramidal schemes etc.

those old German fascists were way ahead of their time, which is why we employed many of them (even before the war had ended) and we installed many of them in the new German post war government, while we systematically tried and executed a few in order to show the world we were the new moral order.(Nuremburg)

the German empire was to be the fourth on the continent, Spain, France, Britain (known for internecine warfare) italy had an empire too. we trumped the German card (being mostly Germans ourselves) and became that fourth empire, a mongrel empire made up of immigrants from the previous three.

imagine they elected someone to replace Hitler (think John Kerry, I can do the Iraq war better), or maybe Obama, after Hitler's disaster on the Russian front, which destroyed their economy. Those troops are coming back from Stalingrad by 1945, I promise.. Keep moving forward.. you see we're all connected...

Obamas electric car does look a lot like Hitler's VW beetle doesn't it?

There is a book called Behemouth which is an exhaustive study of the rise of National Socialism, the institutional and social phenomena. Interestingly, the fellow who wrote the famous book on the American military industrial complex, the one that Eisenhower warned of, said that Behemouth provided him with the necessary conceptual framework to examine the power elite system in the US.

San Francisco TV station slammed after offensive gaffe misidentifying Asiana pilots

The San Francisco Chronicle reported that the error ocurred during the station’s noon newscast, when co-anchor Tori Campbell said KTVU had just been informed of the names of the four pilots aboard Asiana Airlines Flight 214, which crashed at San Francisco International Airport on July 6.

Campbell then identified the “pilots” as:

Captain Sum Ting Wong,

i Tu Lo,

Ho Lee Fuk,

Bang Ding Ow,

as the names were displayed on a graphic on-screen.

So who is going to be the next Homeland Security Chief?  McCane?

Whoever it is, should be interesting!

Lindsey Graham or Officer Tony Baloney

I nominate Sam Nunn.....the least corrupt politician alive....IMO....after Ron Paul.


only then...he's back in the Matrix...and corruption gooed all over him....


Of course, this position is up to the BildermotherfuckingBoogers anyway....

Interesting WB.  Lindsey Graham came to my mind also.  From butch to bitch.

Don't think they'd make you an offer Angus.  You're too competent.

"An investigation has been launched into whether the action constituted “slander against the organizations and representatives of a foreign state..." Slander?! LOL

To prove slander one has to prove the falsity of the claim. Good luck with that.

How do you kill a cop? Make him run after you.

How many cops does it take to change a light bulb? None. They just beat and tazer it to death for not complying and changing itself.

What does a cop call beating a suspect to death? Exercise.

What do you call a black cop? A double menace.

What do you call the streak left after dragging a cop down the street under your car? Thin blue and red line.

I dunno. I will miss the comic relief Janet Napolitano brought to the office of Homeland security. When the underwear bomber was arrested after his flight landed in Detroit, Janet said, "The system worked. "    LOL

Of course, airport security failed to stop Umar from getting on that Northwest air flight with his explosive underwear and it wasn't security that stopped him while attempting to detonate his underwear midflight. It was other passengers who saved the day and their fellow passengers. So, when Janet said, "the system worked", we all knew then average citizens were on their own because Homeland security was far too incompetent.   Yeah, that was the good old days.

She was referring to the Gladio system which did work.
