U.S. has prison slave labor population as well as China

Saw Monday TV show about China's prison slave labor population and found it disingenuous that no mention was made of our prison slave labor population. UNICOR, previously known as Federal Prison Industries is a for-profit corporation run by the Bureau of Prisons - 110 factories at 79 federal penitentiaries. Prisoners are paid either nothing or 23 cents an hour.

What's Wrong With America: Ideology and Injustice Collide

First, let's consider what makes this time slightly different than previous times of unrest. The essential facts are that most Americans are suffering through the deepest economic depression since the 1930s. We barely avoided a complete economic collapse and may still see an economic collapse if the euro fails. With so many homes worth less than the loans against them, the American consumer economy is simply upside down. This is unique in our history -- unprecedented home ownership with unprecedented loss of value.

Can someone verify what I heard today as true?

While I hold dear libreral ideals, I whole heartedly support our troops here in the United States and Overseas. These people put their lives on the line so we may sleep soundly. Patriots who are out their on the front line protecting our country from its enemies. I worked for the Department of the Navy for almost 10 years, from the early 70s to the early 80s. Then our citizens in uniform if single were given a place to sleep, 3 meals a day, a first outfit of uniform, and healthcare. If they were injured whether it be in combat or not in combat we took ca

Is History Repeating Itself in a sort of unplesant way?

In 1960 John F. Kennedy won the Presidential election and became President of the United States. Richard Nixon lost. Richard Nixon, I belive also had some ethics problems with the Republican Party and was pretty much punished for his wrong doing. Now if one of you out there knows more about what he did please feel free to educate us as I was only 4 years old when all this took place. It was only eight years later that all was forgiven for Richard Nixon and he Ran for President of the United States in 1968 and won.

Conservative empire


The Seattle Times today ran an extensive story from the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinal about the Bradley Foundation, located in Milwaukee. According to the story they have spent almost as much money as the Koch Brothers and Scaife foundations combined in recent years to fund a conservative agenda, including supporting conservative foundations, candidates, issues and paying media supporters. It's a fascinating story. You can read it at Politics and Government, under the heading of Conservative empire.


The big "WHY" we are such an ignorant nation, politically.

We may be ignorant in other ways as well, but politically, we are seriously pathetic. But there is good reason. Propaganda.

Quite simply, Hitler accomplished the same thing by monopolizing the airwaves and the media of his day. The "reichwingers" are very capable at the same goal in this country today.

JFK vs. Reagan... REALLY???

I just love to get under the skin of the Reagan cult-worshipers who attempt to shape discourse and history to suit their own agenda. This weekend it was time for his cult members to put down JFK and elevate Reagan. Well, myself and others would not stand for that...

Dirty Tricks Occur In Local Politics As Well

Welcome To Live Oak Florida - Home Of The New Live Oak Garbage Dump!

A Poem:


By: liveoaklandfill/youtube

A rich stranger entered the town of Live Oak, looking to purchase a plot.

He chose land at the town’s archway, with a hole in the center of its lot.

Leo Gerard Gets it: Banksters cycled through World Bank takeover Italy and Hillary Clinton 'wants to quit to run World Bank'.

If you think for one nano-second that Hillary Clinton would make a good Vice President or good anything for the American 99% you are higher than a kite!

Folks, Hillary is a Bankster Extraordinaire on the scale of Timoth Geithner and both are an EXCURIATINGLY BAD reflection on Obama. WOW, it is imperative that everbody understand this if you want Obama to be "all he can be" for the 99%.

US Bank and Tarp


I can not speak to why the person you talked about on the show today did not get a mondification loan but what I can tell you is we (at the bank) were told all of the tarp money we were given was given right back. We did not want it and were the first bank to pay it back in full.

Now I am just a grunt worker so all I know is what I am told by upper management and that is what they told us within months of when the tarp money was given out.

Love the show.

The Billionaire Hypocrisy of Helping the Poor

There's one thing that both progressives and conservatives can agree on, and they can quote both FDR and Ronald Reagan on it.

And that is that, "The best welfare program is a job."

FDR extended the idea to say that when there are no jobs, the government should act as an employer of last resort.
