Jena. black versus white?

Rev. Jesse Jackson about Jena case :

“If I were a candidate, I’d be all over Jena,”

i bet you would. This why you were always loosing

Hillary Clinton :

This case reminds us that the scales of justice are seriously out of balance when it comes to charging, sentencing, and punishing African-Americans” Clinton stated “it cries out for a full investigation from the Department of Justices’ Civil Rights division.”

this is why Hillary will loose

Greenspan’s Endorsement of Putin

Alan Greenspan is extremely talkative since recently:) Yesterday, Alan Greenspan did speak extensively to Maria Bartiromo on CNBC.

He said many interesting things .Those things are widely discussing all over internet. I want to point out only one very curious aspect of his discussion with Maria Bartiromo. Alan Greenspan was saying about Russian president Putin that Putin is someone who understands what capitalism is (!?!).

Hm. Really?

According to NY Putin undertook ( successfully) a campaign to bring Russia’s energy resources under state control.” According to Herald Tribune “Putin is using cash generated by record oil prices to increase state control of crucial industries. Such as military contracting business ,carmaking and aviation. Rosneft a Russian oil company is under state control.“

What is Putin’s understanding of capitalism? According to BBC “State-owned Russian oil firm Rosneft may buy more assets from troubled rival,[Yukos] By the way where is today Yukos’s CEO Mr Khodorkovsky? ? In prison. Imprisoned by whom? By Putin!

Quite a capitalism, Mr. Greenspan!

By the way everybody knows that before his arrest, Mr Khodorkovsky, 41, was not just rich. He was also very influential.[politically]”

Is this a capitalism according to Greenspan ?
I have now doubts that such a libertarian minding financial guru as Mr.Greenspan knows better than anybody else what capitalism is:)

But I doubt that Greenspan is always talking about what he fully understands for example about Putin and Rusiia.

socialism : between helplessness and fascism

Are you going to vote for one of socialist candidates from the Democratic list? Al Gore, John Edwards, Obama, Clinton, Kucinich etc?

Then keep in mind that socialism will bring you either to helplessness, as western European socialist countries are today, or to fascism/communism, as Germany and Russia were.

Socialism in western Europe was sponsored and protected by capitalism. European socialism is alive and relatively well only because capitalist USA did protect it for decades from the USSR. If USA will go socialist, who will protect the USA? France?

Self-sustainable Socialism has to be militaristic by itself. Examples : USSR and Nazi Germany. Yes, Nazi Germany was a socialist country. Those who do not believe that it was, I challenge you to read below the articles from the program of NSDAP – National Socialist German Workers Party (SOCIALIST WORKERS PARTY!!! ) and to tell which one from listed below articles are not suitable for today’s Democratic party platform.

• That all unearned income, and all income that does not arise from work, be abolished.
• The first duty of every citizen must be to work mentally or physically. No individual shall do any work that offends against the interest of the community to the benefit of all.
• Since every war imposes on the people fearful sacrifices in blood and treasure, all personal profit arising from the war must be regarded as treason to the people We therefore demand the total confiscation of all war profits.
• We demand the nationalization of all trusts.
• We demand profit-sharing in large industries
• We demand a generous increase in old-age pensions.
• We demand the creation and maintenance of a sound middle-class, the immediate communalization of large stores which will be rented cheaply to small tradespeople, and the strongest consideration must be given to ensure that small traders shall deliver the supplies needed by the State, the provinces and municipalities.
• The State has the duty to help raise the standard of national health by providing maternity welfare centers, by prohibiting juvenile labor, by increasing physical fitness through the introduction of compulsory games and gymnastics, and by the greatest possible encouragement of associations concerned with the physical education of the young.”

So, if we are going to vote socialist, we either will be helpless and defenseless like Europe today, or militaristic as Germany and Russia were yesterday (and like Russia under Putin still is).

Obama.Variations on topics of populism: part one ” undo the war”

Listening to Barack Obama’s recent speech in Manchester New Hampshire (CSPN-2) :

Incredibly populist speech. He can beat even Edwards with his blatant populism.

If I will have time I will go point by point: education, healthcare , global warming; all accessories of populism are in place. Nothing really new in this populist talk.

History knows only two forms of implementation of populism: communism and fascism. Those who like populism have to choose on those above because there are no other historical options available.

 

Let me focus only on his favorite aspect : anti war ( or to be precise pro-defeat) position. His anti-war vote is essentially only thing that separates him from Clinton who is essentially same populist position in terms of universal healthcare and feeding money to educational system.

So let us see what Obama is saying about the war:

1.

undo the war” slogan

He reminds us again and again that he was one who was against the war.

You were against war? OK! Let us for the sake of argument accept that you were right then. It does not mean that you are right now. Things changed between then and now. You cannot stay in the past .You have to adjust your political mind to new reality. You do not like this reality? So do I. But if you do not like a reality it does not mean that you can ignore a reality: there is no “UNDO” button on “ political computer”. You were against the war it does not mean that you can “undo“ that war. And this is what Obama essentially is saying: “I was against the war then , war was wrong then , and if you will elect me I will end the war ( read “ I will capitulate”)”.

He presumes, for some reason, that after he will surrender everything will be like it was before the war. He presumes that the war will be undone by electing him as a president. Very misleading and deceitful message.

2.

price of withdrawal: misleading out of the war versus misleading in the war

If Obama indeed is honest as he claims (the main message of Obama’s is that he is honest outsider unlike other candidates who are dishonest insiders ) he has to talk right now with his constituency about price of withdrawal which will be huge. But he is not talking about price of capitulation, he is talking only about how correct he was back then when he was against the war. ( his glorious moment as he thinks)

He either does not understand what he is talking about or he is disingenuous in order to just to be elected. Why he his not talking with constituency about the price of withdrawal ( capitulation)? He is saying that if he is a president he will talk honestly about problems. So talk to us about the price of capitulation! Repercussions of capitulation will be catastrophic or at least they serious enough to talk about if you are really honest, of course . Capitulation means broken commitments, slaughtered allies, forever brokent trust in USA as word worthy partner.

So my question to Obama is : OK we got your message , you were right then does it mean that you have an alibi for being wrong now?

3.

personal vanity of Bush versus personal vanity of Obama;

May be starting the war was caused by personal vanity of Bush. May be so . But it looks like that loosing the war is a goal dedicated to personal vanity of Obama. Just because he voted against war, war has to be lost . Otherwise … he was wrong! So hurry up Obama , obstruct American efforts to win the war! If the USA will win this war it iwill prove that you were wrong back then voting against the war! You cannot afford it personally , so you have to “ stop Bush” in his efforts to win the war.

We are paying price for mistakes of Bush . I agree with that .Many things were done wrong. But why anybody would think that “ ending the war “ ( read capitulation) just because Obama voted back then against the war, will solve any of our problems? Would capitulation be a monument to Obama’s vanity?
