Media at a Loss on Navy Yard Shooter

 

PCRC

Has the world of Journalism Majors dropped the idea of telling students that when a criminal is killed in the act by police they do not have to say ‘alleged‘ in regard to their crime as they would if the suspect/perp were alive and in custody?

Worse than that it seems. MSM is bending over backwards not to let the smoke blow away from the enigmatic figure of the Washington Navy Yard shooter Aaron Alexis.

On CNN they are working up steam for a lynching while searching for a credible “culprit” to hang among the people who hired or passed on Alexis for his clearance; the clearance that permitted him to murder 12 of his fellow Navy workers, unarmed civilians all. The problem with this is that the problem seems to have been the policy handed down from the administration, Obama‘s administration.

Even over on Fox News, the supposedly racist FauxNews station you might find it hard to keep in your mind that Alexis was a murderer of 12 people shot in the act (emphasis added).

…Alexis, who was working in IT for a Navy subcontractor when he died in the rampage at the Naval Sea Systems Command headquarters in Washington…

If my eyes happened to see fall on that sentence at first glance I might think it was a bio/eulogy for one of the victims! How about an objective statement such as “… when he was shot while rampaging through the…“? They have decided that the emotional index of ‘rampage’ is not too strong to be applied to the act yet they fail to step up and describe simply, and accurately what happened.

Usually when this happens the answer to my dear Virginia’s inevitable question* is… “politics, and not the clean kind.” How inconvenient for the MSM to have a black man (why, Virginia, why do they always have to force people to be a color instead of letting them all just be people?), and an apparent “LIberal (tm)” to boot, be the perp just when they were about to canonize Saint Trayvon.

In the 1990’s my friends and I laughed at the PC movement; the vanishing of things like plastic ground in playgrounds seems to show that the pendulum is moving back toward sanity but, it seems that even as it is dying the years and years of politically correct but reality challenged “narrative” has amassed enough of a backlog of stupidity that we will be paying for it long after it is a bad memory.

Plus we have to grow old in a world built by a delusionally self-entitled generation; Yippee, Hooray fails to express my delight at such a prospect, but Oh Fuck would be more cynical than I am wont to be, it can be said that my reaction is a lot closer to the OF end of things than the YH end!

Dumbest (uncorrected) Choices in American History: Shortlist

100_0172a

My list of REALLY STUPID CHOICES made in American history; just a short-list I am afraid:

Diet Food” that is more chemicals than food

Having the Soviet Union an “ally” in WWII – better to have let them go it alone; email for full argument

The Electoral College in the Age of Communication; direct election of all offices should be the norm; Political Parties are OBSOLETE and COUNTER-PRODUCTIVE

Public Sector Unions

Adding “under God” to the Pledge making it a point of division instead of unity

Lotus and Apple’s Patent-the-Universe Syndrome making the courts accept patents on things never meant for patent

Failing to live up to Dr. King’s vision and refusing to stop being prejudiced regarding race

Private campaign donations of any kind other than labor

Campaign donations by businesses

Supreme Court deciding that money= a right to a louder voice for YOUR ‘free speech

Dropping the no-partisanship requirements for radio talk-shows and ‘interview’ programs

Letting Lawyers advertise

Supreme Court declaring that nothing of value is earned by the recipient of a military award or decoration

Women’s, Chicano, Black “Studies” propping up people selected, distorted and lionized with blatant prejudice; taking away self-respect while pretending to help by ‘giving the poor things a hand’, and White Studies designed to rip on Western Culture for the same purpose – removing its self-respect – it seems non-whites are too dumb or clueless to run their own lives or stand up to whites and that whites are just intrinsically demonic – welcome to the enlightened world of PC education

Failing to settle on the point in a pregnancy where a woman’s choice is MADE and she must be held responsible for an infant rather than a piece of owned tissue. (6 month preemies regularly survive today and the Radical Right’s agenda on abortion would make women all but chattel)

Worrying more about which consenting adults, what age, color or how many may legally get ‘married’; ignoring the concept of duty, honor and responsibility anyone brings to their marriages

Bilingual Education as a policy

Helmets, knee and elbow-pads for tricycle riders

Peer promotion in school

Affirmative Action after 1990 – where was the transition to color-blind government?

Worrying more about what actual people have DONE with their guns than trying to get law-abiding folk to not have any at all

Electing Andrew Jackson, Jimmy Carter, George W., and Obama

Forgetting that ALL countries do best with immigrants if they pick from the TOP of the pile instead of the bottom

Paying a private group to print/coin money like a product to be bought forgetting that money has no ‘intrinsic’ value’; dollars are just counters for the economic game; increasing or decreasing the supply by fiat to ACCURATELY reflect the production/wealth of a nation is the ONLY reason when deciding when or if to print more money, or let the cash pool contract

Deciding that political consensus and no working model or scientific theory that has been tested is sufficient when making decisions in haste that could wreck the world’s entire economy/infrastructure; in the 70’s it was the next Ice Age that was imminent… no models then either

Making an “eco-friendly” light-bulb containing hazardous amounts of mercury

Adults stealing Halloween from the children and making it another grown-ups party holiday

The Writer’s Strike

ANY serious university or college that “emphasized” sports to make money and enabled ‘tails’ that can wag Great Danes with ease

The American Population Have Willfully Become Immoral Idiots

corporateAmerica

I for one am getting rather tired of all the whining and moaning from all sides over the evils that have been inflicted upon us by the “forces of darkness“, also known as: Republicans, Democrats, Independents,Corporations, Racial Groups, Religious Groups, Foreign Groups; any group that is for whatever that particular whiner is against.

What really matters to most voters is not what they are accomplishing; it is all about preventing the opposition from carrying out their-heinous-agenda-destined-to-enslave-the-Human-race-forever-and-ever.  They define themselves not by what they are “for”, instead they define their existence, their life, on what they are against. Is it any wonder that politics is a morass of factionalism and lends very little of its time and energy to actually serving the public with genuine weal?

And these same voters all can see before them the one and only insurmountable barrier to political reform and campaign reform, indeed a complete “America reform“! They see it, they condemn it, they tell everyone that it must be “reformed”; and every man(woman)-jack of them plays, and protects, the very system they demonize; it is called campaign finance Virginia, and it must GO!

Why do politicians listen to anyone other than citizen voters? Why is voting seen as a valueless “right” by the majority of US citizens when they should regard it as a priceless privilege and duty? The answer to both is the same: we allow people to give politicians money.  Individuals, groups, companies, corporations vast and amorphous, all are allowed to BRIBE POLITICIANS; this is subject to almost laughable “rules” intended for [pretending we give a damn about] “protecting” the citizenry from “abuses” of this essentially irredeemable and malignant institution, all the while scheming for “our side” to game the system.

Take a moment people, think about it and admit your guilt! Americans like to think they might be able to buy their way to control in the name of their own personal “way to Utopia” regardless of the merit of any particular idea put forth by the “opposition”. But, imagine what things would be like if there were no campaign donations period, end of sentence. No. Campaign. Donations.

The basic idea is also simple. Just make ALL elected politicians campaign with money provided by an evenly divided taxpayer provided pool. Once a candidate is on the ballot they would be equal in the eyes of those in the electorate not already familiar with their record; if the same professionally neutral production companies were used and the same budgets given to each, why the best man(woman) just might have a chance of winning!

But, the American electorate knows this and does nothing. They, yes, I mean you, chase after your own slice of the corruption while not lifting a finger to take action, or even speak about just doing away with the whole toxic institution as easily as Herr Obama nationalized whole swaths of privately owned business; but, this time it would be not a theft, but a returning of sovereignty to where it belongs, in the hands of We The People!

Let us go further and declare a campaign able to buy products and impersonal services (printing flyers & buttons, ads, catering, security, etc.) but, prevent them from HIRING anyone for anything more creative than emptying the trashcans at the office! Yes, Virginia, let us prevent anyone from being a professional politician elector! No hired writers, artists, designers, agitators, petition collectors or “political advisors”; in the case of things like television production all candidates in a particular election should be confined to using the same production company which will be selected by competitive bid.

The idea behind this addition is that if you have to hire people to get your message across your message is probably not that important to anyone but you. If something needs to happen it will generate the zeal in citizens to do something about it without anyone making a living from it and automatically biasing the process!

Think about it my people, other than as a defense of your dreams of a forlorn hope that your personal brand of righteousness might “win” using corrupt and dirty methods, then shed them like butterfly leaving behind its worminess to produce a thing of beauty, what cause do you have to not rise up and demand campaign financing to END?

It is inimically self-righteous selfishness that has resulted in our giving money the rights of a citizen. Money represents nothing more than the collective productivity of a nation. Money is nothing but a system of tokens that we use to keep track of productivity as we trade it amongst ourselves and other nations.

Taken it objectively: this perversion of Western politics means that whoever can amass (by hook or by crook, only the end total matters) a large portion of this collection of game counters has the right to more “free speech” than those citizens, equal in numbers and passion, who are not as good at the economical game.  Doesn’t this concept go violently against both Conservative and Liberal ideals?!? Why does it continue then, when real power (the Vote) still is in the hands of the citizens?

Because too many people think THEY MIGHT BE ABLE TO USE IT THEMSELVES, and so excuse it!  So Americans should stop whining about not having influence America, we are getting exactly what we wanted and what we deserve.

Why Does MY Party Need Ethics Laws? WE Are The GOOD GUYS!

Partisans suck on both sides!

Anyone who thinks their party is somehow less corrupt in its own way than the “opposition” deserves whatever idiots they elect!
Classic Liberals hold up as an ideal the underdog successfully gaming a corrupt system; the Conservatively oriented uphold the concept of WORKING the, not perfect but necessary, system for success.

But, the Leftist believes that “The System”, or “The Man” is ALWAYS inimical; while a Liberal understands that this is something to be guarded against while not an inherent facet of all “authority.”

The Right-winger holds the belief that those within the system are somehow protected from being abusive, and corrupt within the rules…
Obviously these are both utter fallacies!

Leftists seek to game the system; to use self-righteousness as a champion of “the downtrodden and powerless” as an excuse to do things that would make their blood boil if attempted by “the other side”!

Liberal thought respects the gaming of the system by truly oppressed folk, while also respecting the honesty and integrity of those in the majority who play by the rules of the healthy systems to prosper.

But the “leadership” of “Left” and “right” promote the idea that THEIR fantasy is the ONLY valid attitude, and the only one that DECENT people would follow.

I have TWO things to say to both mentalities; the 2nd thing I want to say to them is…”and the horse you rode in on”!

Corporations:A Race Genetically Designed to Pursue Profits; They Have No Business Interfering With Free Speech!

 corporateAmerica

THIS is why free speech should NOT be extended to corporations as well as real, individual people!!!!! Regarding the Congressional Resolution regarding Turkey’s Big Armenian Genocide Adventure:

(Reuters)

"The U.S. aerospace and defense industry opposed the measure… could jeopardize U.S. exports to Turkey, rupture U.S.-Turkish relations and put American jobs at risk…"

A corporation’s bottom-line is…their bottom-line, period!

Bad judges: The lowest of the low

corruption judges eat your children

Too True to be Comfortable

Adam Graycar, of the Rutgers Institute on Corruption Studies, explains that what is really unusual about this tale is the scale of the corruption. First the judges received monetary rewards for sanctioning the building of a new private-sector prison in their area. Second, they were paid for closing a county-funded prison nearby. And, then, of course, they offered up the “juvenile delinquents” for the benefit of the owners of the new jail.

Feb 26th 2009 | NEW YORK
From The Economist print edition

The judges are going to jail, …

EARLIER this month, two judges in Pennsylvania’s Luzerne County admitted sentencing thousands of children to jail in return for kickbacks from a prison-management company. Judges Mark Ciavarella and Michael Conahan received a commission for every day they sent a child to private juvenile detention centres run by Pennsylvania Child Care and a sister company. The pay-offs came to $2.6m over seven years.

Hillary Transue, who is 15 and faced Mr Ciavarella without a lawyer, was sentenced to three months because she constructed a fake MySpace page ridiculing the assistant principal at her high school. Her case led to the judges’ downfall; children have a constitutional right to a lawyer, …

This is not really news to me. While living in New Orleans I saw what police and judicial corruption really was. Growing up in Southern California I just wasn’t prepared for what I witnessed. At the time the city sheriff had managed to convert the city jail into an actual “prison”. This meant that people could end up spending up to two years at this facility and the city (read, sheriff) got paid for each prisoner each day. The “prison” had virtually no educational or communal facilities. By all reports tiers of 44 or so inmates with a small common area with benches sat around and talked, played chess or watched a single TV or fought, day after day. Anyone who was arrested an unable to make bail ended up here along with those who could not afford a lawyer. Court appearances will follow after court appearance until they plead guilty to a charge selected by the city. I have seen reports of inmates playing this dance, with the judges in full cooperation, for over a year before finally being released without charge. Not many have that kind of patience and after being sent back a few times will change their plea, receive time served and be released. The amount of tax money wasted on this while actual, violent criminal are released to make room for new warm bodies is stunning. The money New Orleans has made on this atrocity of a “jail” is staggering. IT is a common policy in New Orleans to arrest a poor local or tourist, hold them overnight then release them with no charge after getting “court costs” from them. If you ever visit the deep South in general or New Orleans in particular, NEVER argue with the cops. It just doesn’t pay…..you.
