Could This Be True?

leave a comment »

Is the U.S. Government UNDER reporting their war dead? If you’re shot on the battlefield, but only die on the way to a medical treatment center or post evacuation you’re NOT counted. So says this report:

Iraq War Deaths Exceed Vietnam War Number

Department of Veterans Affairs Reports 73 Thousand U.S. Gulf War Deaths

By Gary Vey for viewzone

This is the report’s supporting this article:

I know you probably will think this is another conspiracy theory — I did when I first heard about this — so please read the original report for yourself. [Source: http://www1.va.gov/rac-gwvi/docs/GWVIS_May2007.pdf Note: Sometimes this link is not active so we have posted the pdf file on viewzone 393 kb.]

Just a note: The release date of this report was June 30, 2007 – FOUR YEARS AGO! Interestingly, there is no publish date on the web article either. Make one wonder if this is, as posted, just another “CONSPIRACY THEORY.”

The real cost of war always seems to be the truth.

Is This Guy an MRE?

I’m not sure Eric Kirk rises to the status of an “Elite.” As a younger person than I, recollecting upon previous statements of his, he came into the heart of the Emerald Triangle in its heyday. He’s worked in Southern Humboldt, supporting that community as a businessman and a lawyer. That community, with rare exception embraced the counterfeit prosperity brought in by a sub-culture of outlaw marijuana growers, sellers and exporters. While to local business people postured over the lawlessness of these criminals, they were certainly not loath to look the other way as they raked in all those cash dollars. The consequences are over 50 years of generational corruption, moral and ethical debasement.

This writer’s post, while certainly hilarious on it’s face, certainly, to those of us that have remained unstained by the stench of this feces, is without any doubt“Morally Repugnant”:

Giving growers a bad name

June 20, 2011 in Uncategorized | Tags:  | by  | 41 comments

Someone dumped a bunch of spent marijuana grow soil into the Arcata Bottoms, disturbing a very vulnerable habitat.  The Arcata Eye has the photos.We know nothing about the people who did the dumping, and I know there are much worse transgressions than this – but what is clear is that there is a certain nihilist element in the growing community which becomes evident with each headline.  This incident visually symbolizes what appears to be a decline of ethics and increase in self-centered disregard for community in an industry which is broadly trying to become legit.  This is what leads public figures to rail about “unholy alliances” and will certainly contribute to a very definitive backlash.

Maybe some values are simply not surviving from one generation to the next? [Emphasis added]

Giving Growers a BAD name? Did you read the comments? You’ve got to read the comments. Here’s how they start with one classic apologist’s comment:

Kym Kemp  June 20, 2011 at 12:01 pm
  A good chance is that they are first generation growers folks who moved here for the money not for the lifestyle.

“First generation growers” “who moved here for the money”? I wonder where she got that idea. I was there at that time and I can tell you “they” – most “they(s)” – didn’t move here for the money or “the lifestyle.” They were just trying to survive the only way they knew how. “Lifestyle” – That’s her romantic fantasy.

Hilarious, no? A symbol of “decline of ethics and increase in self-centered disregard for community“? You’ve got to be kidding me! What “community” is he talking about? I’d like to know what kind of “ethics” and “values” he’s talking about. Only a “self-centered nihilist” lawyer “elitist” would ever look at the corruption caused by the “unholy alliances” between the amoral business “community” and the morally corrupt pot grower and fifty years later ask if someone’s dumping “a bunch of spent marijuana grow soil into the Arcata Bottoms” is a “decline in social – community norms. In my book, that is a classic example of a “Morally Repugnant Elitist” as you can find anywhere.

PS. If you’d like to know a little more about an MRE I suggest you read the following blog: Warmongers and the MRE blow.

Warmongers and the MRE

with one comment

(Morally Repugnant Elite)

Why the ideologically motivated Republicans and their fellow conspirator believers are warmongers and incapable of being at peace with anyone. Classic attitude demonstrated by David Brooks in his Op-Ed Column: The Depravity Factor.

Morally Repugnant Elitist Warmongers all demand from their enemies or anyone they think threatens them abject subservient recognition and acceptance of their totally self-asserting legitimate right to exist. While at the same time, NEVER acknowledging, let alone recognizing the others equality. That is unless they are subservient and mindful of their place in the dictatorial regime. This is the ultimate of moral deprivation – force them to compromise away all human value, self-worth, individuality and personal humanity.

Brooks says, and I quote. However, is he really talking about himself? Is he totally oblivious of the historical and current state of being of this country and its corresponding, but massively overwhelming actions that he is so self-defining?

For 30 years, the Middle East peace process has been predicated on moral obtuseness, an unwillingness to face the true nature of certain governments.  ***

Perhaps some of them were simply morally blind. They were such pedantic technocrats, so consumed by the legalisms of the peace process, that they no longer possessed the capacity to recognize the moral nature of the regime they were dealing with, or to understand the implications of its nature.

In any case, their efforts were doomed. In fact, the current peace process is doomed because of the inability to make a categorical distinction. There are some countries in the region that are not nice, but they are normal — Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia. But there are other governments that are fundamentally depraved. Either as a matter of thuggishness (Syria) or ideology (Hamas), they reject the full humanity of other human beings. They believe it is proper and right to kill innocents. They can never be part of a successful negotiation because they undermine the universal principles of morality.

Here is another good example of what these MREs have done to justify and promote their actions and existence. Johann Hari’s historical account defines these MRE’s longterm objectives and goals, all to the detriment of humanity.

This is an extremely revealing article in the newspaper, The Independent by Johann Hari: It’s not just Dominique Strauss-Kahn. The IMF itself should be on trial. – How to rape with impunity.

The best example I know of how the MLE’s have raped with impunity is Haiti. Democracy Now has an interesting interview: WikiLeaks Cables Reveal “Secret History” of U.S. Bullying in Haiti at Oil Companies’ Behest. – The price people pay for believing that they have the right to be free individuals and control their own destiny. About the interview:

The Nation magazine, in partnership with the Haitian weekly newspaper, Haïti Liberté, has launched a series of reports based on more than 19,000 classified U.S. diplomatic cables released by WikiLeaks. Called “The PetroCaribe Files,” the series begins with an exposé of how the United States—with pressure from Exxon and Chevron—tried to interfere with an oil agreement between Haiti and Venezuela that would save Haiti, the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, $100 million per year. “It is really amazing to see an ambassador pushing around a president, and all his officials telling them what to do, trying to tell them what Haiti’s interests are. It is the epitome of arrogance,” says the report’s co-author, Kim Ives. We are also joined by veteran Haiti correspondent, Dan Coughlin.
