Vegetable Holocaust

I was horrified when I saw these graphic and very disturbing pictures of the Vegetable Holocaust. Though these atrocities are more than I can bear, I implore you to read about them so that we can help the movement to protect the vegetables.

Bye Bye Fidel

Some thoughts on the reign of my beloved Fidel Castro:

  • A country is to be judged entirely on free access to health care. On this measure, Fidel's Cuba is in fact the supreme revolutionary state that Amerikkka should hope to become one day.
  • Fidel was a pure revolutionary; even Reuters knows that. In the entire history of the world, there have been only four dictators, of which one (and maybe two!) were defeated by Fidel: Batista, Pinochet, Hitler, and Bush.
  • Fidel's Cuba is GREEN! Power consumption per capita is only 1,200 KWh (similar to other green nations like Tunisia and Syria). Compare with loathesome fat Amerikkkans drinking 13,000 (!) KWh per capita.
  • Fidel's Cuba has a per capita income of $3,000 -- similar to the nations of honest Sun People of sub-Saharan Africa. Unlike the murderous status-seeking Amerikkkans, Cubans derive pleasure from the non-monetary aspects of life, such as free health care and a genuine Revolution!
I miss you already, Fidel, my leader.

Why I Like Obama

"The outlaws of Exxon Mobil will never again rob us."

-- President Hugo Chavez, Feruary 10, 2008

"I know that it won't be easy to change our energy policy. ExxonMobil made $11 billion last quarter. They don't want to give those profits up easily."
-- Barack Obama, February 12, 2008

My Presidential Primary Endorsements

Democrat Endorsement

My first choice for Democratic nominee is Comrade Hugo Chavez.

I have already instructed my students (under the penalty of failure) to canvass streets, shopping malls, Wal-Marts, and all types of public and so-called "private property" with literature encouraging the people to support Hugo.

My students have told me, however, that most ignorant Amerikkkans (an oxymoron, if there ever was) do not understand that they can support Hugo, and instead feel limited to Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. When I see such people, I scream at them, "What have you against Chavez, you swine?", and they are left dumbstruck, unable to answer.

Amerikkkans = Racists.

Nevertheless, of the remaining two candidates, I support Hillary Clinton.

Yes, these are uniquely historic times, when the president of Amerikkka can be a Brown Sun Person -- but as important as that qualification is, I believe that it is our turn as wymyn to propel ourselves to our share of power.

And besides, look at her plan:

"I have been listening to the voices of people across America."

"My measure of economic success will never be a single, dry statistic. "

"...we need decisive, experienced leadership to get us back on the right track."

"As president, I will not hesitate to take swift, bold action to address our immediate challenges."

Need I go on?

Republican Endorsement

Yes, they will all be dealt with later. But still, if John McCain is good enough for The New York Times, then he certainly passes my test.

For now.

"He was an early advocate for battling global warming."

"Mr. McCain was one of the first prominent Republicans to point out how badly the war in Iraq was being managed."

"Mr. McCain stood up for the humane treatment of prisoners and for a ban on torture. "

"He has been a staunch advocate of campaign finance reform, working with Senator Russ Feingold, among the most liberal of Democrats, on groundbreaking legislation, just as he worked with Senator Edward Kennedy on immigration reform."
And, he likes taxes!

If a Republican must win, then it must be McCain.

But he will be dealt with, too.

Problem...Housing CRISIS; Solution...More GOVERNMENT

All across this putrid land of Amerikkka, people have been evicted from their homes. By the millions, they waste in the gutters and sewers, their rotting corpses providing food for bloated corporate pigs to feast on, and for zionist bankers to repeatedly rape over and over and over and over.

Do I exaggerate? No, I am understating the horrors of bank foreclosures.

Understand this and never forget: A contract is intended to help the people. And when the banks say that people are "bound" to "contractual obligations" like paying "interest" at "mutually agreed upon" "rates", then that, friends, is all the proof I need to demonstrate that the Nazis were never in fact defeated by the heros of the Soviet Union, but are instead alive and well, and "lending" money to home owners in Amerikkka.

Fortunately, there is a short term solution. (The long term solution, of course, involving the dragging the capitalists into the streets and shooting them like the vultures they are.)

In 1977, Amerikkka's finest President, Jimmy Carter, signed the Community Reinvestment Act.

The Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) was established by Congress in 1977. The Act requires that deposit-taking financial institutions offer equal access to lending, investment and services to all those in an institution's geographic assessment area-at least three to five miles from each branch. In the case of large banks with many branches, the geographic area may encompass an entire county or even a state.

Before the CRA, many bankers excluded low-income neighborhoods and people of color from their lending products, investments, and financial services - a practice known as "redlining". Community activists coined the term when they discovered that the failure of banks to make loans in some low-income neighborhoods was so geographically distinct, that it was easy to draw red lines on maps to delineate the practices.

In the 1970s, activists in Chicago and across the country brought strong pressure on banks to lend equitably to all those in their communities. Since its passage, the CRA has been used across the United States to win tens of billions of dollars in new lending, investments, and services for communities. The National Community Reinvestment Coalition tracks more than $1 trillion dollars in community reinvestment pledges nationally. These pledges are explicit investments in equitable development goals, and finance many tools in this toolkit.

Friends, we need better enforcement of the Community Reinvestment Act (and more Nobel prizes for President Jimmy Carter).

We need to force the banks to lend more money to people of low-income and people of color.

And we especially need to lend money to people with no money and no credit, for they will be the underpinning of our new Socialist State.

And we must allow the loan recipients to repay the loans on their terms, and not according to some racist "contract".

More government is better government.
