Occupy Wall Street and the Media Smear Campaign

2 11 2011

Anyone who has watched the news in the past month has heard of Occupy Wall Street, the protest movement that is rocking the nation. The movement has given the working class one voice, united against corporate greed and it’s influence on government policy. The Movement has become big enough to garner media attention. The media coverage of Occupy Wall Street has not all been positive, and in the beginning of the protests was non-existent. Many media outlets have launched an all out smear campaign. The smear campaign is mostly from, but not limited to more conservative media. Of course this should be of no surprise, since most media outlets are major corporations. In the beginning the media tried to make it look like the protestors were uneducated hippies.

Obama Middle East Speech Proves That He has No Intention to Change Foreign Policy

22 05 2011

By Christopher Thompson

I know that I am a little late on Obama’s recent Middle East speech, that’s because I just watched it. There is a lot of buzz around this speech particularly from the religious right about the part of the

speech involving the Israel-palestine conflict. I heard al these right wingers talk about how Obama is Betraying Israel. How do they figure? What I got from the speech is that Obama is screwing Palestine just as much as every politician before him.

First of all, I don’t believe we should be supporting Israel period, just like we shouldn’t have helped create the Zionist state at the end of WWII. Sure Obama talks of a Palestinian state, but not one that has a chance of surviving. I love how our politicians always demands that Palestine acknowledge Israel’s right to exists, yet nobody says that Israel should acknowledge Palestine’s right to exist.

Obama says “Our friendship with Israel is rooted deep in shared History and values.” What, Like the fact that both nations were founded by white Europeans, who went to a land that wasn’t theirs, to kill the indigenous people to steal their land? He also goes on to say that we won’t stand for Israel to be singled out By the International community. Kind of like how The US singles out Iran, while Our Allies like Israel and Saudi Arabia get a license to kill? Even Iran doesn’t go into international waters and attack ships with Humanitarian aid, in violation of Geneva convention rules.

He goes on to state “Every state has the right to self-defense, and Israel must be allowed to defend themselves. ” Yet, his plan calls for a demilitarized Palestine.
Wait, a minute, didn’t he say every state has the right to defend themselves? Yet he calls for a Palestine that is not even allowed the means to defend its self . Israel’s history of “defending” itself is to attack other countries and settle its land, and if those countries truly defend themselves they are called terrorists. Israel doesn’t only occupy Palestinian land, they also occupy land that once belonged to Lebanon , Syria and Jordan. Wow, self-defence really seems to work to Israel’s advantage. every time Israel “defends” themselves, they acquire more land. So, basically when Obama says that every state has the right to self-defense, every one translates to Israel, and self-defense translates to Imperialist expansion.
There you have it folks, Obama has not done a damn thing to change our flawed foreign policy.





Stupid FDA, Stupid Big Dairy farms picking on the Amish

17 05 2011

By Christopher Jay Thompson

I’m madder than a mad cow. I’m mad mad mad mad mad. Oh yeah, did I mention that I am mad? The FDA, an agency that we all Know is bribed by the Big industrial farms, has  had an Amish farmer arrested  for selling  raw milk  across state lines. Since when has unpasteurized milk become an Illegal substance? No one got sick from the milk. Now  all things natural have become off-limits.

This is another attempt by the FDA, and corporate farms to  keep small farms from making a living. If it wasn’t for the Corporate farms lobbying(bribing) politicians, this would not be a legal issue. The government want complete control of the food supply so they can have complete control of us.It’s funny how Big farms can use growth hormones and steroids and all kinds of unhealthy stuff on their cows to help them profit more, but it is Illegal for a farmer to sell natural milk. We are losing our freedom.





The American Dream Is An American Lie A Long As Corporations Are In Control

7 05 2011

                                                   by Christopher Thompson

In the United states, the gap between the haves and the have-nots is increasing. the people who do all the work have nothing,while the fat cats who sit on their buts doing nothing keep getting richer.The empire of the elite is built on the broken backs of the working class. How is this right? I seriously doubt that our founding fathers intended this country to be ran by the corporate elite.

A subject that most Americans do not Know of, is that of corporate personhood. So, what exactly is corporate personhood? The Idea of corporate personhood is the idea that a corporation is legally a person, and therefore deserves the same rights and privileges as citizens. This concept is backed by the united states government. Nowadays corporations have more rights than people do. This ideology led to the  deregulation of the corporations during the bush administration, which was on of the major causes of our recent economic collapse.

      Today we live in a world in which corporate interests are the main driving force of political policy. Any law or regulation designed to protect citizen or the environment will pass, but only if it doesn’t infringe the corporations’ “right” to profit. So if the politicians make the rules and corporations influence political policy, then one could conclude that corporations make the rules.

   Here in the United States, citizens do not work for the politicians, the politicians work for the citizens and corporations are not citizens. We need to raise our voices and say “enough is enough”. Political policy should coincide with the needs of the people and not the greed of corporate America. When the government becomes corrupt, it is our right, if not our duty, to petition the government for a redress of grievances and there by influencing policy. As Gandhi said:

 “If the people lead, governments will follow”

Well, it is time for the people to lead.
