Tea Party Terrorist: Just Another Grand Ole Party?

During the Health Care Debate, a virulent set of white terrorists has emerged. The Tea Party campaign is nothing if not persistent, and yet their language and behavior is nothing short of terrorism. Terrorism in that it is political, it has a political agenda, and the group is targeting political representatives with violence in order to enact change. They are also using racially tinged acrimony to further their movement.

We have seen the likes of this right-wing behavior before. We all can remember when the President Barrack Obama was called a terrorist and a muslim during his campaign. We recall the rage that was being fomented by Sarah Palin, who has become one of the more pronounced ring-leaders of this terror unit. The fact that the media has yet to address the illegal behavior in such manner is telling. I have to bring to your attention this country’s dangerous practice of protecting all things white, and demonizing all acts that are non-white.

The conservative white US citizen has been allowed to terrorize town hall meeting after town hall meeting, with no more than a slap on the wrist, and heavy news coverage. While the media attempts to make Vice President Joe Biden’s possible slip of the tongue a major story, they seem to be downplaying the racially demoralizing comments of the Tea Party. It would seem that their(the tea party) attacks on the Health Care Bill is no more than a half cocked excuse to spew hatred for all things non-white. In the mix of this terroristic behavior, democratic elected officials are being targeted for actual violence.

I am troubled this country’s repeated show of double standards toward the white US terrorist. These people are no more than enemy combatants that should be incarcerated indefinitely. Their determined aggression is nothing short of treasonous, and they only soil the already feces and urine stained fabric of US society. What is this country waiting for, civil war? When the media address these savages as the terrorist organization that they are? While the intelligence agencies of this country are busy tapping our phones and studying our social networking practices, faking yet another Bin Laden Sex tape, there is a real clear and present danger being allowed to grow in our back yards.

As the American Blacks of this country have to debate whether we should be counted by an insensitive census bureau, which may offset statistic reporting for the next five years, terrorists are being catered to. Where are the gang units that ravage the American Black community in the communities of those who threaten law makers? Where are the phone tap reports of these terror cells? Why has the right-wing media not been to taken to account for their anti-democratic, anti-US demagoguery? Muslim clerics aren’t allowed to speak, but conservative wing nuts are promoting violence on this soil as though it were their religion. The insidious death threats towards the President and government officials through social networking sites, blogs, and the like are a part of a cohesive ideology designed to instill fear in those whose political ideas and racial make up are different. That is the definition of terrorism.

My After Thoughts On HCR…After

I suppose it is to be expected.

So many arguments. So many reasons.

I don’t deny any. All I ask is that those who wish to present their case bring well reasoned arguments.

It is the day after. The Health care bill has been signed into legislation. The mandate is real.

Of the disputes, I find the only one worthy of my concern is the benefit that it brings to insurance companies. We have to consider the power that a federal mandate will give to insurance companies across the US. In 2014, unless the law is change, every citizen will be demanded to possess health insurance. Possibly good, possibly bad, but what has been created to assist those who don’t have the funds to provide themselves with the necessary money month to month to cover the charge?

At all instances of politics, we have to remain aware of the direction that power has shifted. If you are a person that wishes to one day be a power broker, then this is upmost importance to you. Power does not come out of thin air. Although, for the most of us it has always been in the hands of those we deem worthy, without question. For a number of us, it remains a force that belongs to people with names. People who exist in real time. People that we can figure out a way to take it from.

I have only a few arguments against the bill, and the fact that it is a mandate is one. I believe that this will become an evil for those the bill suggests it will help. We all have to consider how that measure will affect us in the future. We also need to convey that reality to those whose priorities have not reached a level of maturity. The bill rewards us much that is beneficial, while it also promotes the capitalist state.

As Pres. Obama has signed this piece of legislation into law, we must continue to be diligent in the reform of the bill. For those who are able minded, please consider the ramifications of the federal mandate forcing citizens to spend and acquire the services of those who have been forced to render them. Yes, this is a very euphoric moment, but not a moment of rest. As reasonable thinkers, we still need to consider the detrimental concerns of this bill. It is not time to become lambs who dance to their slaughter. Instead, it is time to become well inform people who belong to a republic who are aware of the changes that occur, and their power to act swiftly and educatedly to enact change, and to demand change when needed from their representatives.

My After Thoughts On HCR…Before

When the votes had been tallied, and the results had finally came in. After John McCain had given his speech, and the, at that time, president elect, “catted” his way to the bullet proof shield in Chicago, my first reaction was to let everyone know that he wasn’t black like us. I still hold on to that fact, and I am often forced to stand on that position. And I will. I also will stand on my position that the Health Care Reform package is a good thing for those that are in need of it.

During my darker hours I was smart enough to find ways to get government assistance. Not quite as much as Wells Fargo & Co.(they got $25,000,000,000), or State Street Corp.(They got $2,000,000,000), but I suppose I got enough for my purposes at the time. I used to walk past the Health Care for Kids center and witness the single mothers who’s children may be in need of check ups for school, illnesses and sicknesses that occur in the process of developing strong immune systems that can’t always be alleviated through healthy diets. I understood the means and the methods of holding one’s government accountable. After passing by so many homeless veterans waiting on the VA, I understood also the need for patience, and self-determination.

I can tell you that those who worked out deals with the government out of the offices of JPMorgan Chase & Co., Citigroup Inc., Goldman Sachs Group Inc., Bank of New York Mellon Corp., and Regions Financial Corp. aren’t complaining about what they didn’t have before, or what conspiracies the government has concocted. They are trying to get more money.

I am not to happy that the mandate has passed, I would have opted for the public option. I am, however, glad that some may leave dead end jobs that were held only because of insurance prices, may now take heart, and become entrpreneurs. I am also pleased that more students seeking higher education will be able to take advantage of the $36 billion promised in the reconciliation bill through the Pell Grant. More than that, I’m hoping to negotiate some of my own personal college debt away!

Concessions, Applause, and Book Plugs…The Black Agenda Conference…

Nothing makes my day better than spending it in the neighborhoods of the black community, listening to arguments about Jay-z, and brothers from St. Louis reminiscing about how the bloods and crips first came here. The height of the day was hearing brothers discuss the murder of Hitman-T at eighteen, and his body being expunged from the ground, and left on his mother’s doorsteps. Yeah, great way to start your day off on a positive note.

So, once I returned home, I was excited to read my e-mail (we might as well just start calling it g-mail…it is coming) and my DMs (Direct (Private) Messages from my twitter account), and find a set of videos left by a good brother of mine, and a sister asking me to watch The Black Agenda that was recorded early today. From listening to old gang bangers, to listening to older black politicians and academics. Yeah, my life, right?

The theme was “We Count”, and Tavis Smiley was sitting at a round table(enough of the subtle gestures already guys…) with the likes of Rev. Jesse l. Jackson, sr., Minister Louis Farrakhan, Michael Eric Dyson, Cornel West, Angela Glover Blackwell, Michael Fuantroy, Dr. Julianne Malveaux. They were affectionately referred to as Tavis smiley and the Panelist…I thought they were going to dim the lights, and drop a few highlights on them while the music began to play…instead, Tavis asked everyone to hold and pray. Thank you. I didn’t know if Michael Phleger would be able to hold a note. Oh, yeah, Michael Phleger was the one who gave the invocation, yeah, the white Michael Phleger gave the invocation for the Black Agenda…yeah.

It was hosted by Wayne Watson president of Chicago state university(affectionately known as CSU…Geez, guys…who’s writing this stuff…), and before the marquee guests appeared he asked the students to participate in the 2010 census. Now why would he bring that up? When have you ever heard someone talk about the census? He states that participation in the census will help the federal government allocate funds to the black community…

I was so glad that Jesse L. Jackson was the one to make the comments about the moral center, and the black agenda being the moral agenda…I’m not going to say it…well…maybe the good Christian monogamous brother believes he is Abraham…

The gist or the overall theme of the conference and much of all the panelists’ discussion was that the American Black Agenda was the American agenda. I ultimately understood the dialogue, and was glad the dialectic was pronounced. However, I also would like to state that every time American Blacks attempt to depend on the state of White America to heed their call, nothing but concessions amount from the talks. This is still planet earth, and rule number one among the living seems to be the need to demand power, and not ask for it. The hope of better treatment for the millions of American Blacks in this country from millionaires is very strange to me. And ultimately, those who say let your work show, I’m in the belly, and I have been here for the most of my life, and I have never seen you.

I see the gangster discussing how they have shot people and how the organizations of young men in the streets of St. Louis has grown. I hear the pain of the brothers and sisters when referencing work and jobs. I hear them when they talk about the various prisons across the state of Missouri, and how one can avoid the traps. I believe they have taught me more about the black agenda than those who live comfortably working at such institutions as Prince George University, Georgetown, and Princeton, Bennett College for women. I have no compunctions with them discussing moral codes because they also discuss their moral dilemmas. I trust them. And because they see me striving for this degree, while living among them, they trust me as well.

How DMX Might Counsel Obama and Google About China

As I skimmed through my bookmarks held on delicious.com, I came across this particular piece from last week. It is titled “China reports on US human rights record”. It is located in the “Foreign and Military Affairs” section of the online newspaper, Chinadaily.com.cn. According to the article, the Chinese Information Office of the State Council has written a document detailing the Human Rights violations of the United States of America in 2009. The article states that the Human Rights Record of the United States in 2009 was in response to the United States’ Country Reports on Human Rights Practices for 2009, a report that was commissioned by the US Department of State last week.A pretty bold move on the part of the Western Capitalist society that could considering the United States in pocket to China a mouth watering 1.56 Trillion dollars(source here).

It would also seem as though the US is also attempting to appeal to a world audience the need for internet companies like Google to be allowed to be free of censorship and scrutiny in China. While the content wars between Google and China ensue, a light weight contender is feeding off of the frenzy. Chinese search engine, Baidu has jumped 47% of US market shares. The company’s company’s Nasdaq traded stock is being closely watched by US analyst and fund managers who seek to benefit from the possibility of the website to reap the revenues left behind if Google decides to leave China(source here).

Rewind a little further to when the White House hosted the Dalia Lama, a exiled Tibet leader, which caused a major riff in US and Chinese affairs. The wording of China’s leadership was less than impartial on the subject, including statements that the US should “immediately take effective steps to eradicate the malign effects” that they felt the US had created with the meeting (source here).

All of this, oh, and one more thing, a prominent firm of Silicon Valley, Applied Materials, the world’s biggest supplier of components that are implemented in the manufacture of semiconductors, solar panels and flat-panel displays is moving one of its chief technology officer to China. The company has built a research lab there, and last week held its annual shareholders’ meeting there.According to the New York Times, the company is working in China to produce two-thirds of the world’s solar panels by the end of this year (source here).

As most of my older followers know, I have a tendency of relating the macrocosmic political/economic world to those of the microcosmic. It was very difficult for me not to see the relation of these global interactions with that of drug dealers. I would suppose an explanation might be in order for the uninitiated. In considering these events, I am reminded of a DMX song that I hope that President Obama has somewhere in a playlist on his Ipod….

The Left, The Right, and The White…

I was watching Bill Maher’s Real Time on HBO this morning. Although I am often offended by his off color remarks with regard to race, and his undercover Jewish habit of thinking because he is having sex with black women he is given the right to speak about black people in an often too blunt manner, I still tuned into the white camel nosed comedian while giving his notoriously uncomical monologue. Later in the show I was blessed with a jewel from the mouth of swine. The greasy political one-liner stated that the Pentagon shooter, John Patrick Bedell was an internet conspiratorialist.

Now it wouldn’t be too much of a stretch for me to accept the shock spot of the desperate clown, except that HBO’s jester was borrowing sound bites from CNN. CNN is supposedly an objective news source, but with republican sponsored advertisements disparaging the Health Care Bill being presented by the president of the United States, Barack Obama, and the Democratic Party. Now what I want to explain is what is supposed to be the difference between the right-wing and the left wing, left to center, and right to center.

Bill Maher’s supposedly represents himself as leftist. In the United States, “left” is more a political stance that attempts to improve the conditions of the middle class. The Right is the part of the political spectrum that symbolizes the ideas of the rich and the status quo. The major ideas of the right are rooted in the preservation and extension of the “American Idea”, and in many ways the White US American, or Old US American way of expanding the market through genocide and cultural imperialism. The Right is the political stance most represented by Fox News anchors and conservative radio hosts like Rush Limbaugh, Michael Savage and Glenn Beck. Although these are all extreme examples, they are the voice of the visible media conduits of these political wings, or spectrums.

Center, as one might guess, is the place where policies and stances on issues get balanced and interchanged. Barack Obama is a left to center president of a country that is right to center. Capitalism is a conservative state of mind that employs military means to expand markets that benefit the status quo while objectifying the working class. The observative political scientist needs to understand that the basis of all political decisions in this country is weighed heavily against a very rightist base of economics and social system. The average US K-12 student is highly seeped in a belief that if you work hard, you will achieve financial stability and possibly financial comfort. The student is socialized to believe that if anyone does not possess particular material possessions or a certain type of job, then it is their fault. These types of people, for some reason, lack the ability or motivation to be mobile in this country and they are a burden on the “taxpayer”. This is often an immature political and socio-economic viewpoint that lacks to consider the actual lack of laissez-faire as the government offers loans and grant subsidies to business ventures without the rightist stigma placed on the citizen. Laissez-faire is the political ideology and state of affairs where the government is supposed to allow entities involved in business ventures free reign from government regulation. But as we all have seen this administration continue the practices of the former with regard to the billion dollar bailout of corporate and banking interests. the same interests that buttressed the decline of the US economy to begin with.

The question becomes if we are such a centered nation, at what point does Republican and Democratic interest become divergent? Bill Clinton and Barack Obama both received campaign donations from Bill Gates, as did George Bush. Bill Clinton opened more prisons during his administration than any other president in history. Bill Clinton created a bill that hinders anyone convicted of drug trafficking from receiving financial aid from the government. Two very obvious attacks on the poor. This is supposedly left wing behavior, and a liberal stance. Even Barack Obama displays a right wing ideology when making statements regarding the poor that the poor have to work their way up like everyone else. Well, not quite Mr. President, seeing that your administration has helped bankers and corporations survive financial setbacks that would have surely sent them to the asking about how many stamps they get monthly on their EBT card.

From the point of view of the citizen, the question you need to prepare yourself with is where do you stand on certain issues. If I was living in a country that was administrated by American Blacks than my stance on most issues would be considered right wing, highly nationalistic. Even in the US, I would have a difficult time placing my take on issues on the spectrum. I don’t support abortion, but I don’t think abortion should be a question of legislation. Well, I should say, I don’t think the US government should have any say in the matter. This is the type of analysis you should begin in your own thinking.

Where do you fall in the spectrum?

No Taxation without Education…

In the aftermath of the University of California at San Diego terrorist concern, “noose-gate”, the state of California has more than one problem with its institutions of higher learning.The students across the state of California, in a grand show of solidarity, began to hit the streets to protest a 33 percent increase in tuition. In the same state the spawned the protests of the sixties, and gave birth to the west coast office of the Black Panther Party for Self-Defense, working class and poor college students are once again being called upon to defend human needs from human’s greed. Today is a Day of Action to Defend Public Education.

As the president of the United States, Barack Obama laments the need for productivity and the need for higher education, his words sink like human excrement to the ground as those of us who are actually attempting to walk the path of the intellectual are being bombarded with impossible colleges prices. Students are expected to study hard enough to make 4.0’s while working two jobs, and many taking care of other responsibilities besides themselves. The price of education continues to rise, while the value of the bachelor degree and master degree are losing traction. The well to do are once again given an advantage in this country while the working class is being forced into substantial debt attempting to live the American Dream.

Where is the advantage of this? What has the value of the US taxpayer’s dollar become? Where is the Robin Hood of this era to take from the rich and give to the poor, the same way that the government has taken from everybody else and given it all to the bankers and corporations? While Maddoff is sitting in federal prison, the predatorial lenders are still flying private jets sipping chilled glasses of Sherry. I guess it isn’t what you do, but who you do it to.

No taxation without representation. Where is the representation for those students across the country out tonight forced to represent them? Where is the education president at? Where is the country of democracy on this issue of educating the masses in order to have an informed public?

I want to give a special mention to all the protesters who have gone out to demonstrate the evils that men do in this country. Who have bonded together in civil demonstration, to plea to the world, “Why are they being fleeced of their pursuit of happiness?”

To those three who were arrested outside Hunter College…

To those five who were arrested in California outside of the Capitol for protesting the budget cuts…

To those students who attempted to take the seventh-floor of Hunter…

To those students who walked out of class at the New School and New York University…

To the students who hit the streets to voice the pain of a dream being deferred by the bottom line, at over 100 California colleges campus…

To all the students around the world, but especially those who are standing strong to protect our duty to be educated as the president of the United States might say…

YOU HAVE MY UTMOST RESPECT. I AM HONORED TO SEE THIS DAY…

Thank you for reminding me….

Aluta Continua…

Elite Education or education for the elites?

The social contract is taken for granted. You are born into
citizenship like american blacks were born into slavery, and now many poverty. There was no
choice in that matter. The minute one comes out of the womb in this
country, and the doctor smacks their bottom, and pink or blue blankets
are ruffled through-the socialization process has begun.
Due to the tacit nature of the social contract, the education system
of the US hurts its agenda. I believe that Barack Obama, in his
elitist thinking has failed to understand that much of the money that
flows through the black community is driven by the current of black
businessmen who dropped out of high school. That seems to be possibly
the very reason they were able to do it:their socialization wasn’t
completely channeled through a process that makes people conform to
the criteria of a class based economic system.

What Obama is really saying when he speaks to his room of elites, but
country of undereducated, when refering to “dropouts” in his
paternalistic “they live shattered lives”, is that they live outside
of the system. Obama mentions that these “dropouts” live on government
assistance, and Obama is one of the architects of the bailout, where
the college educated rich who robbed and shattered not only the lives
of the middle class, but the country itself- where given government
assistance. And still are.

What Obama wants and the rich in general, is to produce more workers.
More workers makes the corporations stronger. The education system is
apart of a social contract, that many of sign just by being born in
this land. A social contract that asks you to pay taxes, but schools
that don’t teach students how to file their own taxes without the aid
of digital applications or H&R Block. A social contract that states
that you have to support the government financially, but you aren’t
allowed full transperancy of military acts, yet you can be wire
tapped. A social contract that states that ignorance of the law is no
defense, yet high schools don’t require more than a civics class,
nothing that delves deeply into the true nature of law and what
precedences have been set.

I am pleased the President has set his sights on education, and has helped to provide over 43,000 new jobs in that field. However, I pray that he understands that a high school diploma has lost much of its value, and many have found self-sufficiency without it. If we truly want to improve the knowledge base of the country, we would either finance Harvard educations for everyone who seeks one, or extend high school educations to include a college level curriculum in all public high schools. I am for extended week schools, even reducing the time spent away from school during the summer time. I would also support extending public education past the senior of high school, possibly making it two to three years longer.

We hold the taxpayers and hard working citizens of the country accountable to a social contract that imposes responsibilities that many have not been prepared for. In this present social contract, those citizens are led by members of society who stigmatize them based on elitist standards. The elected leaders of the hard working use the tax money to finance the very corporations and institutions that make it difficult for the working class to achieve those same said standards. Many in this country are high school dropouts and are able to provide, and sometimes have to dropout in order to provide.

Please, Mr. President, get real. Change the system, stop playing the same blame game as all of your predecessors played…

American White Terrorist Threat SEVERE…

While perusing the morning’s bits and digits on the various sources of information I use to keep abreast of the current flow of national and international events -simply put, I was reading my iGoogle page- I came across the story of the strong students on the campus of the University of California San Diego. These students were terrorized by the startling discovery of a noose laying on a library table. The student’s Black Student Union organized hundreds of fellow colleagues and called for the university to be shut down. The righteously indignant warriors of social change held down the fort of the college’s chancellor’s office for an outstanding 6 hours(source here). Unfortunately, the student’s organized and civil display of unrest with what would be that campus’ third outrageous sentiment of racial terrorism would only be rewarded with a suspension of the female white(American) terrorist from the campus( source here).

 

For those of you who have been following this blog and those of you who know me a little more personally, I used to be mister fuck college, and mister college ain’t teaching me shit. Pardon my United States of American. These days of course I can always be found either defending my reason for attending and pursuing further degrees, or encouraging others to make the jump. As a college advocate, I am extremely disturbed by this slap on the wrist. A noose is not a political statement that should be protected by the US Constitution. It should immediately alarm the campus that something dreadfully dangerous could happen, and the local authorities should be called in to investigate, not campus police. No disrespect to public safety officers on campus’ across the land, but I mean charges of terrorism should be filed.

 

As your President Barack Obama fills my ears with his sugary words of education and his commentary of how high-school dropouts live shattered lives, I’m wondering how people of campus terrorism and trauma will live. The schools of the USA are shattered already, Mr. Obama. You can’t buy a decent education without worrying about a high-strung professor killing you, some guy with social disorders shooting you, or finding a damn noose on a library table. In the American Black community, children are herded through metal detectors and yet there are more cases of white mass homicidal attacks and suicides than in most urban school yards. I’m glad that over 41,000 education jobs have been created from the stimulus money, but I hope those educators and members of the operations of schools live to enjoy a healthy career.

 

While I am profoundly grateful for the students who have contributed to black history while the dumb cow on CNN keeps mentioning that they “should be celebrating black history..”(white folks…I promise y’all, figure it out…the next crew is being raised by the educated, the enlightened,the and war scarred…). Obviously, America has failed to realize that their terroristic behaviors are atavistic, and need to be monitored, and the history of the American shows a pattern of behavior that is remarkably savage in light of their great contributions to technology. The inability to defer anger and murder/suicide is a dangerous cultural paradigm and should never be taken lightly by anyone who finds themselves surrounded by Americans. I would would raise the American White Terrorist level to red, but there has never been anything but a severe risk of terrorist attacks from the American white since Columbus the Killer arrived.

 

 

While this country is trying to make “Fat” the new “nigga”, Americans are still, as always, the old terrorists.
