Super Peter Principle

The Peter principle states that in organizations people rise to their level of incompetence – in super Peter principle you cut the middle man and go way above your level of incompetence straight away.

Thus we have total failures like Sarah Palin, her daughter who can’t dance and that failed businessman Donald Trump claiming success and Sarah and Donald talk about potential presidential bids in 2012.

Let’s  examine the reality of these people:

  • Donald Trump has lost billions of dollars for his share holders while profiting from his celebrity status. Objectively, he has been an abject failure as a business leader. He makes most of his money from “The Apprentice,” and licensing his name to real estate projects. So in effect many buildings which have his name on them do not belong to and have never belonged to Trump.
  • Sarah Palin contributed to the loss of elections by ex-maverick (I cannot even remember his name). She quitted from her governorship of Alaska, a state with fewer people than San Bernadino county (a minor county in California). She is the reason that the Democrats still hold the Senate. In the meanwhile she makes millions from her celebrity.
  • As for Bristol Palin who is the poster child of why lack of sex education is dangerous. Now apparently she is atrocious in “Dancing with the Stars” (I don’t watch) but thanks to her mother’s fans she is in the finals. Fair enough. People like her mom and it is a popularity contest. What I’m writing about is her hubris in not acknowledging that she owes her  popularity  to her mother.

There’s lots of nonsense written about elites. Elites are the cream of the crop. The best.  My question is would you send a person with a broken leg to the Olympics? Or would you send your best athlete? Think about that next time you vote.

Obama Hitler conection

The extreme right wing tea baggers keep connecting Obama to Hitler. Actually as I have said for the last three years Obama was a right wing (moderate) Democrat then and has moved to a right wing Bush/Cheney/Hitler position as far as his foreign policy is concerned.

Why do I compare Obama with Bush/Cheney/Hitler?

Here are a few reasons:

  • Extraordinary rendition is still continuing.
  • Baghram air base.
  • No prosecution of war criminals
  • Extra judicial murder of US citizens with missiles
  • Support of Israeli State terrorism – examine collective punishment by the Zionazis and Hitler – sure they do not have any gas chambers or ovens but the whole of Gaza is a large concentration camp and like the original Nazis the Zionazis live on territorial expansion and illegal occupation. Moreover, I do not see any great difference between the idea of a super-race and the idea of “God’s chosen people.”
  • Talk of genocide by attacking Iran.
  • Giving military contracts to private (allegedly war criminal) corporation like Whiteater (under its new name of Xe) and Haliburton.
  • Guantanamo still there…

The list is long. Obama started sounding good (sppech to Muslim’s in Cairo) but he has shown himself to be part of the Neocon/American Taliban/Likhudnic AIPAC anti-Islamic crusade, We will not win friends by supporting the extreme right wing (no peace – not now – never) wing of Israeli political parties and the dictatorships in Saudi Arabia, Egypt and so on while having that corrupt drug peddling Kharazi government  in Afghanistan.

As far as the Obama domestic policies are concerned he has manged to save us from the second great depression at the cost of giving the store away to the Wall Street greedy super rich without any real reform.

I said thwo years ago, “Obama is minus five hundred, Hillery minus fifty Thousand,  the guy from Arizona (the idiot’s running mate – how soon one forgets) minus five million vs Bush/Cheney’s minus trillions… But he is still minus”

But, I was wrong. Sure Obama is a billion times less bad than McCain and his stupid running mate the “Impaler.”

However, given how far he has moved to the right he is a thousand times worse than I ever imagined. And sure I still have to support him and the rest of the Democrats but they are not our friends (the people’s). They just suck less than the Republicans.

Joseph and the lean years

I’m watching a right wing economist talking about reducing taxes to reduce the defecits.

You stupid idiot  – been there, done that – and that’s why we are in such a mess.

Giving more money to the rich only gives more money to the rich.

We need to invest in our future in these lean years. We need government jobs (not in defense but in the defense of our crumbling infrastucture). We need to spend money in education and not in buying cheap foreign imports produced by slave or near slave labor.

We need manufacturing jobs not financial leaches stealing our monies in wall street rigged casino. They take our money and give themselves billions in bonuses. They are leaches on the society and need be controlled. We need good regulation with life without parole (I would say immediate death penalty if I was not against capital punishment in principle)  for the Wall Street thieves.

Then when we get to the fat years we can cut the deficit by cutting our defense budget by ten percent a year for the next ten years or so (about eight percent in total – remember it’s compound interest in reverse). We could lower our defense wastage (we don’t need a bloody empire) by eighty percent and yet have a defense budget higher than the sum of the next four highest spending nations.

Last refuge of a scoundrel

Patriotism is supposed to be the last refuge of a scoundrel.

Is it?

Perhaps not, but too much patriotism is definitely bad for your nation and bad for humanity. We have to understand that ideas such as, “My country right or wrong,” is bad for the country (we stop improving the country) and bad for morality (we may support torture because my country does it under the leadership of a brainless President and evil visions vice ridden vice President).

Patriotism is pride in one’s country. But a little pride goes a long, long way.

Too much patriotism produces testosterone poisoning and macho pestering leading to demagoguery of the type done by Hitler, Stalin or George W, Bush. This type of over reach becomes hubris and defeat. We have spent more than four trillion dollars (with real accounting principles as all corporations have to do) in Bush’s two disastrous fiasco debacle wars.

We are jobless and in such an economic mess because of stupidity of the leadership and non-caring of the media which bent over for Cheney’s transfer of our wealth to Haliburton, Whitwater and other agents of alleged murder, torture and other war crimes.

So perhaps patriotism is not the last refuge of scoundrels (because you, like me, are a patriot and we are not scoundrels) but too much blind patriotism allows these scoundrels – such as Bush/Cheney – too control our lives and give our taxes and nation’s wealth – the commonweal – to their thieving friends.

Stop this activist Fascist court

I just heard on CNN (conservative news network – vs. FOX which does what it sounds to the news): “This court is more moderate than we thought.”

This Supreme court moderate???

The current extreme right wing corporatist supreme (supremely anti people) court is an activist Fascist court.

From Wikipedia: Fascists seek to organize a nation on corporatist perspectives, values, and systems such as the political system and the economy…

This Alito court has supported corporations in every instance and has been extremely activist by going out of its way to give as broad a procorporation bent as possible.

Now the right wing out of either stupidity, ignorance, evil and otherwise pure bad faith talks about original intent in the constitution. I want to see where does it say that corporations are super humans with all the rights of persons without any responsibility.

However, the corporatist supreme court aided and abetted by the corrupt corporate owned congress and executive allow the corporations to do whatever they want and have private gain and public loss. We have socialism for the corporations and super rich when they loose monies thanks to pure incompetence, greed, and stupidity.

We give them our tax money so that they can give themselves billions of bonuses.

***

What to do?

Nothing will be done until we educate ourselves, have real campaign reform, and change the constitution so corporations are treated as artifacts with absolutely no rights per ce but giving their shareholders and employees rights.

Forget McChrystal

So McChrystal is an idiot – so what?

Who cares?

It’s a stupid unwinable war.

It’s time to declare victory and bring the troops home.

Al Qaedeh are in Pakistan now.

Our Afghanistan partners are corrupt.

The easiest way out (of Iraq as well as Afghanistan) is through Iran. I don’t mean through attacking Iran but understanding that our national interests and those of Iran are very similar. Drop the dictatorial Arab client regimes and the apartheid one in Israel and join with Turkey and Iran.

Next we need to reduce our defense expenditure by eighty percent (still we would waste more on the military than any other nation in the world).

The money we save we can spend in a Manhattan/Apollo type of public science/engineering  American ingenuity and brilliance project to free us from Mid East oil and global warming.

Save the gulf oil jobs – save the gulf

Some Republican law makers are complaining that President Obama is destroying the gulf oil drilling jobs by having a six month moratorium on deep drilling in the gulf  of Mexico.

I have a simple suggestion on how to save those jobs while protecting the environment.

In Norway you cannot take out any oil from a well until you have the relief well in place. Let’s do the same here. Give the oil companies a reasonable time (I am not a petroleum engineer but somewhere between three to six months sounds a good time period) to drill relief wells for every existing wells in the gulf.

This way the oil workers could be happy as well as the environmentalists.

Even so fpr the future it would be much cheaper and safer to stop all deep sea drilling and employ the workers in building roads, levies and so on…

Democracy is for the Greeks

Beware of Greeks bearing gifts is an old saying (from the Trojan war and the horse). One gift that we get from Athens is so called democracy.

So the question is what was the original democracy as practiced by the Athenians?

Out of a population of about half a million about ten thousand were citizens and had any rights (including right too vote in a general assembly). The rest were woman, children and slaves. The ten thousand were members of the aristocracy and well educated (for the era). They would meet in a general assembly, argue the issues at length and vote. The most important vote they had was to execute Socrates (in the words of Plato “the best of men”).

Now, bring the same direct democracy to California with the propositions and monied interests advertising their way to get whatever laws they desire thanks to the ignorance of the general population. A proposition may pass with fifty percent plus one and yet ask for a super majority of seventy five percent to undo its effects.

Dumb, dumb, dumb!

Today we have two propositions set up by individual corporations so they can get a commercial advantage over others. They have been advertising nonstop and the chances are their propositions will win through handily.  Over and over again the ignorant Californian for vote single corporation laws. Moreover we keep voting for extra expenditures while voting for less taxes. This has led to our fiscal disaster. You cannot demand more and more services and less and less expenditures.

I suppose that’s the whole country’s problem. Since 1980 we as a nation and as individuals have spent more and more without earning the money for such expenditures.

And unfortunately most of the expenditures are wasted money on military and junk consumer goods.

So our infrastructure and education continues to deteriorate and we owe trillions to our future masters…

NATO is dead

When a non NATO terrorist outlaw nation attacks the vessels of a NATO country in an act of open piracy and the head of NATO (USA) aids and abets the law breaker (Israel) it is time to close NATO.

Soviet Union no longer exists. The only rational of NATO would be to defend members when viciously attacked by non-members.

Close this joke.

I just saw Israel apologists on MSN (supposed liberal media) saying that Israel had full right to do what it did.

These liberals make me sick. I have always said that scratch a liberal and you find a fascist underneath.

No wonder they hates us. We support all Israeli war crimes and piracy on the high seas.

God has no chosen people. God is a God of love not a God of war, death and destruction like that of the Israeli government which is not in truth Jewish (a great religion when not abducted by the Zionazis).

Immigration reform

Most countries in the world have illegal immigration issues. Even poor countries have “illegals” coming to their countries from even poorer countries. Every country that I know allows illegal immigration with a wink and a nudge (you know what I mean – Python). The reason is that the illegal immigrants take jobs that the natives will not accept at the artificially low wages that the kleptrocrats can get away with paying the illegals.

I am using the term illegal not because I believe it is possible for any living being let alone a member of that highly intelligent and extremely stupid species  homo sapiens (human being the wise – never a bigger self contradiction). How can a person be illegal and I mean a real human person not an evil kleptrocatic non-person (corporations the bane of human existence). I use the term illegal to show how the kleptrocrats use the status of human beings to make profit.

If any country wishes to stop illegal immigration just put real penalties for the hirers of that class of workers. Since the supreme court of the kleptrocrats has decided that corporations have all the rights of natural born persons let’s give them all the responsibility of humans. Thus if we can go to jail and we live in one of the few countries so savage that we have capital punishment let’s have the same punishments for corporations.

Under these fair rules BP would be in jail just now (has to cease all new operations) waiting for murder trials and possible death penalty. B.P. would cease to exist and all belongings would first be used to pay for the damages done and the rest used to pay off debt and the shareholders would get the rest. If this happened other corporations would start caring about the good of all rather than greed above all.

Back to issue of immigration. Just put real effective employer sanctions. For corporations it would be something like ten years of jail (temporary ceasing of operation) for each person hired illegally. The government in return would have an electronic means to tell us whether a person is allowed to work in the country. We could have a ten thousand dollar sanction for individuals, Again anyone could use the government database to discover if someone is allowed to work or not.

Why is such a simple system in place?

Because we (even the most bigoted person) gain by the “illegal” status of the immigrants. Are you ready to pay three dollars for a head of lettuce?

I know I’m not but then I believe in total open borders. If capital is globalized, so should labor and taxation be globalized.

I’ll write more about this later. The point is that all companies doing business in the United States should pay their fair taxes no matter where their headquarters are placed.
