SCOTUS Obamacare Decision Makes Individual Mandate A Fact & Universal Healthcare Coverage A Fiction

Individual Mandate

Supreme Court ruling re “National Federation of Independent Business v. Sebelius” means corporations can use federal law to force people to buy their products.

SCOTUS OBAMACARE DECISION MAKES INDIVIDUAL MANDATE A FACT & UNIVERSAL HEALTHCARE COVERAGE A FICTION

If you want to read all 974 pages of the deceptively-titled “Patient Protection And Affordable Healthcare Act” (the actual Obamacare law) you can do so here:

If you want to read all 193 pages of the obscurely-styled “National Federation of Independent Business v. Sebelius” U.S. Supreme Court decision (the actual Obamacare ruling) you can do so here:

http://www.supremecourt.gov/opinions/11pdf/11-393c3a2.pdf

As was the case with F. James (“Fat Jim”) Sensenbrenner Jr.’s USA Patriot Act, NDAA 2012, HR347, HR658, HR3606 and so many other corporate-backed bills that have taken us down the slippery slope from freedom to fascism and widened the gap between our ruler Haves (the 1%) and serf Have Nots (the 99%), there’s a good chance your Senators and Representative in Washington didn’t read the law before they passed it. There’s a better chance the television talking heads tripping over themselves to tell you what to think about the SCOTUS Obamacare decision didn’t read that either…


http://www.thedailyshow.com/watch/thu-june-28-2012/cnn—fox-news-report-supreme-court-decision

…and it’s a sad certainty that the vast majority of the American Sheeple (a) will never look up from their iPhones or away from their Fakebook pages long enough to read either the new “healthcare” rules or the ruling that proclaimed them “Constitutional” and (b) wouldn’t understand all the deliberately obfuscated legalspeak if they did.

So where can Average Joe get the plain and simple truth about the “Affordable Healthcare Act (ACA)” and the Supreme Court’s “NFIB v. Sebelius (11-393)” ruling?

Well according to the “truth in politics” (ugh!) watchdogs at FactCheck.org, he won’t get it from Barack Obama (a.k.a. Odrona the Indefinite Detainer), and he won’t get it from Mitt Romney (a.k.a. the Godfather of Obamacare)…

‘With the U.S. Supreme Court upholding the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act on June 28, voters are guaranteed to continue hearing the same old false claims about the law from politicians. And President Barack Obama and presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney wasted little time in taking to the airwaves to rehash plenty we’ve fact-checked before. Obama even threw in a few new claims.

  • Obama reiterated his “if you like your plan, you can keep your plan” refrain, despite the fact that at least a few million workers won’t keep their employer-sponsored plans, according to the Congressional Budget Office.
  • The president also exaggerated the benefits of the law, such as the number of young adults who were able to join their parents’ plans, thanks to the law, and the number of individuals who will receive rebates issued by insurance companies that didn’t spend enough premium dollars on health care.
  • Romney repeated a number of distortions, saying that the law would “cut Medicare” by $500 billion and that it “adds trillions to our deficits.” That’s a reduction in the future growth of Medicare spending over 10 years. And CBO says the law would reduce the deficit.
  • Romney said the law is a “job-killer.” But CBO says the law would have a “small” impact on jobs, mainly affecting the amount of labor workers choose to supply. Those getting subsidies, for instance, might work less hours since they’re paying less for health care.
  • Romney claimed the law “puts the federal government between you and your doctor.” The law would set minimum benefits packages, but medical services will not be government-run, nor does the law allow for rationing of care.’

http://factcheck.org/2012/06/romney-obama-uphold-health-care-falsehoods/

Average Joe won’t get the plain and simple truth about what the SCOTUS Obamacare decision really means from Congress, from TV coverage, or from the corporate-sponsored political puppets representing either side of the “Two-Party Tyranny” the global elite use to keep us divided and fighting each other rather than united and attacking them. Fortunately, however, he can get a glimpse of it here:

“A deeply divided Court held that the individual mandate, which requires that virtually all Americans either obtain health insurance or pay a penalty by 2014, is constitutional… Defending the constitutionality of the mandate, the government’s primary argument was that Congress can require everyone to buy health insurance using its power under the Commerce Clause of the Constitution, because the failure to buy insurance shifts the costs of health care for the uninsured to health-care providers, insurance companies, and everyone who does have health insurance. Five Justices – the Chief Justice and Justices Kennedy, Scalia, Thomas, and Alito – all rejected that argument. But the government still won, because a different set of five Justices – the Chief Justice and Justices Ginsburg, Breyer, Sotomayor, and Kagan – agreed that the mandate was constitutional, but for a different reason… Although the Chief Justice rejected the government’s Commerce Clause argument, he agreed with one of the government’s alternative arguments: the mandate imposes a tax on people who do not buy health insurance, and that tax is something that Congress can impose using its constitutional taxing power.”

http://www.scotusblog.com/2012/06/todays-health-care-decision-in-plain-english/

The bottom line is this:

As were “Citizens United v. FEC” (which allows global and even foreign corporations to buy our elections) and “AT&T Mobility v. Concepcion” (which makes consumer class actions against corporations infinitely more difficult), the SCOTUS “NFIB v. Sebelius” decision is a BIG WIN for corporations in general and health care and insurance companies in particular. Contrary to the claims of clueless Obamapologists from coast to coast, neither Obamacare nor this ruling “paves the way to Universal Healthcare Coverage”. Instead, they set the precedent for more individual mandates by which the corporations which control our politicians and through them our government can order us to order their products.

Many American Bikers Suffer From Sensenbrenner Syndrome. Do You?

Sensenbrenner

How can Bikers be “against totalitarian enactments” yet align themselves with the fascist “1%er” stooge who sponsored the most totalitarian act in U.S. history?

MANY AMERICAN BIKERS SUFFER FROM SENSENBRENNER SYNDROME. DO YOU?

Wisconsin’s 9th Congressional District morphed into its 5th in 2003, but since 1979 and for almost a quarter century that district has been represented in Washington DC by the same silver spoon politician: United States Congressman F. James Sensenbrenner, Jr. This district is the home of almost 700,000 of Wisconsin’s wealthiest residents and two of Harley-Davidson’s primary motorcycle manufacturing facilities – H-D Powertrain Operations in Menomonee Falls, and the H-D Product Development Center in Wauwatosa.

Many Harley riders (including myself) and other Bikers like to think of themselves as defiant examples of personal independence and liberty, and refer to each other as “freedom fighters”. There are many so-called motorcyclists’ rights organizations (MROs) to exploit that, among them being the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA), the Motorcycle Riders Foundation (MRF), the National Coalition of Motorcyclists (NCOM), A Brotherhood Against Totalitarian Enactments (ABATE), and the US Defenders. Here are some representative mission statements:

“The mission of the American Motorcyclist Association is to promote the motorcycling lifestyle and protect the future of motorcycling.”

http://www.americanmotorcyclist.com

“To continue developing an aggressive, independent national advocate for the advancement of motorcycling and its associated lifestyle which is financially stable and exceeds the needs of motorcycling enthusiasts.”

http://mrf.org

“ABATE of Wisconsin’s goal is to give the motorcyclists of Wisconsin a strong, united voice with regard to their future, their way of life, their safety, and their legal rights as motorcyclists and citizens.”

http://tinyurl.com/ABATEMRO

In addition to a common membership base and political message, these MROs also share an affinity for Congressman Sensenbrenner, who due to his portly stature is known to some as “Fat Jim”. Here are a couple of their accolades:

“The AMA thanks [Sensenbrenner et al] for protecting the motorcycle lifestyle, and encourages motorcyclists in these representative’s districts to thank them for their support…”

http://tinyurl.com/76ez5sw

“Sensenbrenner has redefined what it means to go ‘above and beyond’. He has worked tirelessly to protect motorcyclists’ rights on every front at the federal level for over 35 years. ‘Not only are the motorcyclists of Wisconsin in Mr. Sensenbrenner’s debt, every motorcyclist in this country has benefitted from his steadfast support,’ said Jeff Hennie, MRF Vice President Government Relations and Public Affairs.”


http://tinyurl.com/7v53dyz

So despite the fact the he was an heir to the Kimberly Clark (Kotex) family fortune and born one-percenter – in Occupy Wall Street, not Hells Angels, terms – it certainly sounds like Fat Jim is a champion of democracy and a true defender of the freedoms and liberties cherished so dearly by our two-wheeled cowboys from coast to coast, right?

WRONG.

Jim Sensenbrenner sponsored the USA PATRIOT Act (HR3162). Let me repeat that for any leather-covered sons of liberty whose jaws just dropped or eyes glazed over. JIM SENSENBRENNER SPONSORED THE USA PATRIOT ACT:

http://tinyurl.com/3l4z2n4

That’s right, all you riders for justice. The man your MRO leaders claim has been protecting your “rights on every front at the federal level for over 35 years” has actually been decimating them for much of that time. The Patriot Act he sponsored did more damage to what was once your Constitutionally-guaranteed Bill of Rights than any other bill ever signed into law, and he didn’t stop there. He also sponsored the REAL ID Act (HR418) – which turns your state-issued drivers license into a nationwide “homeland security” identity and tracking device – and has been behind a number of other corporate-sponsored Big Brother affronts to personal freedoms, civil liberties and even Internet privacy:

http://tinyurl.com/3qdv4

So this chubby, lobby-funded frequent-flying fascist (labeled the little “dictator” by Rolling Stone’s Matt Taibbi) is who American motorcyclists expect to champion their rights in Washington, huh?

http://tinyurl.com/2g2lar

God help them. They must be suffering from Sensenbrenner Syndrome. No, not this one:

http://tinyurl.com/6oyy2mm

The Sensenbrenner Syndrome I refer to is defined crudely as “befriending those who be f*#king you”. This disease has clearly afflicted a large number of Wild Hogs, and that’s sad. What’s worse is that the epidemic doesn’t end there:

How many fiscal conservatives voted for Bush Era Republicans while they were running up record deficits and wrecking our economy with unsustainable tax cuts and reckless deregulation? How many Koched-up Tea Party Patriots support those very same long-tenured corporate puppets today? And how many anti-war progressives that voted for “Change” in 2008 are willing to admit that their drone-happy Democratic President Bushbamney has expanded rather than shrunk the American War Machine overseas while doing nothing for the people back home than might alienate his Wall Street masters?

Like Judge Napolitano, I ask: Where are the Jeffersonians? And where is the outrage?

Balochistan: Next Stop In Corporate Fascist Amerika’s War-For-Profit Tour?

Baluchistan | Balochistan

Are the human rights issues raised over Baluchistan real or just another ruse and excuse for the U.S. to invade a former ally and install a puppet government?

BALOCHISTAN: NEXT STOP IN CORPORATE FASCIST AMERIKA’S WAR-FOR-PROFIT TOUR?

Having failed to strike a deal on NATO supply routes through Pakistan largely due to the killing of thousands of innocent civilians by Bushbamney-approved American military/CIA drone strikes, in violation of international law the United States has within the last week moved its nuclear-powered aircraft carrier USS Enterprise into Pakistani territorial waters within 70 nautical miles of the city of Gawadar in Balochistan.

http://tinyurl.com/7tp45fp

Modern maps show Balochistan (or Baluchistan) as a province of Pakistan. But historically, ethnically and tribally the “Land of the Baloch” is a mountainous region in the Iranian plateau of Southwest Asia that includes portions of the sovereign territories of not only Pakistan but also Afghanistan and Iran.

http://tinyurl.com/7a5pudk

Consequently, increasing American covert “intelligence” operations and overt military presence in this region is the geopolitical equivalent of playing with fire in a match factory. And that may be exactly what the Wall Street-controlled Washington War Machine intends to do…

There is already an ongoing conflict between Baloch “separatists” and the Pakistani government, with both sides accusing the other of human rights violations or other crimes and injustices. So-called “militants” from the Persian portion of the region have also clashed with the Iranian government. And Baloch “insurgent groups” are reportedly operating in southern Afghanistan as well. According to Wikipedia:

“Pakistan has repeatedly accused India, and occasionally the U.S., of supporting the Baluch rebels in order to destabilise the country. Both countries have denied the charge. Iran has accused America of supporting Jundallah for years. America has denied the charge.”

http://tinyurl.com/29tdfy2

But now, according one source “…the United States is coming out of the closet in favor of the dissection of Pakistan. Nothing could be more clear – all of the ‘conspiracy theories’ about US/India meddling in Balochistan are true. Pakistan is on a countdown to invasion.”

http://tinyurl.com/87fbruc

Another source suggests the U.S. strategy may be to help Balochistan gain its “independence” then install a puppet government to give America’s war profiteers the routes and resources they seek in the region: “Most [exiled] Baloch leaders, including Geneva-based Sardar Brahumdagh Bugti of the Baloch Republican Party, are miffed why the U.S. is talking to Pakistan on these routes instead of the Baloch.”

http://tinyurl.com/73wpyuc

Next steps for Balochistan (Baluchistan) will be important topics on the agenda of this two-day seminar in Crystal City VA sponsored by the Pentagon’s Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) and scheduled for this week:

Pakistan Symposium: 2014 and Beyond Draft Agenda

  • “What will be the the role of economic and social development in the FATA/Baluchistan?”
  • “What will be the effect of regional dynamics on the FATA and Baluchistan?”
  • “What will be the impact of demographics and population movements within the FATA, Baluchistan, and the areas immediately surrounding these two regions?”

http://tinyurl.com/6psr3rq

Our research shows the panel members for this symposium include Baloch separatists, activists and sympathizers – but no one representing the government of Pakistan. How do you think the government of America would react if the government of Russia staged a seminar where they laid out plans for the future of an “independent” Iowa? Here’s James Corbett’s take on the big picture for Balochistan (Baluchistan):

“Exactly as in Sudan, Libya, Uganda and other flavours-of-the-week in the great game that has defined global geopolitics for decades, however, this newfound attention on Baluchistan has very little to do with grievances about the plight of the long-suffering locals and much more to do with the region’s vast, untapped mineral and resource wealth, its geostrategic location on a proposed pipeline route that threatens to undermine Western influence in the region, and its role as a base of operations for terror groups that Mossad and the CIA have been using to wage a proxy terror campaign on Iran.”

TPP FTA (TPPA): Trans-Pacific Partnership Free Trade Agreement Subordinates Nations (And People) To Corporations

TPPA/TPP FTA: Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement

Negotiated in secret but now exposed as a “corporate power tool of the 1%”, TPP grants powers to corporations that supersede all laws and rights of citizens.

TPP FTA (TPPA): TRANS-PACIFIC PARTNERSHIP FREE TRADE AGREEMENT SUBORDINATES NATIONS (AND PEOPLE) TO CORPORATIONS

“The Trans-Pacific Partnership ‘free trade’ agreement [TPP/TPPA] is a stealthy policy being pressed by corporate America, a dream of the 1 percent, [and a realization of George Bush Sr.’s vision of a “New World Order”] that in one blow could: offshore millions of American jobs, free the banksters from oversight, ban ‘Buy America’ policies needed to create green jobs and rebuild our economy, decrease access to medicine, flood the U.S. with unsafe food and products, and empower corporations to attack our environmental and health safeguards.”

http://tinyurl.com/d78sm9n

“Under the agreement currently being advocated by the Obama administration, American corporations would continue to be subject to domestic laws and regulations on the environment, banking and other issues. But foreign corporations operating within the U.S. [including foreign subsidiaries of domestic corporations] would be permitted to appeal key American legal or regulatory rulings to an international tribunal. That international tribunal would be granted the power to overrule American law and impose trade sanctions on the United States for failing to abide by its rulings. The terms run contrary to campaign promises issued by Obama and the Democratic Party during the 2008 campaign.”

http://tinyurl.com/cdpa7ay

“A leaked draft of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) investment chapter has been published online by Citizens Trade Campaign, the same coalition that first published TPP proposals from the United States on intellectual property, regulatory coherence and drug formularies in late 2011. Draft texts are said to exist for some 26 separate chapters, none of which have ever been officially released by trade negotiators for public review.”

http://tinyurl.com/br42znp

“Despite the White House’s efforts to keep [the] proposed free trade agreement concealed from the public – and even Congress – an excerpt from the TPP leaked Wednesday [6/13/2012] reveals that President Obama is prepared to bow to multinational corporations… According to the leaked excerpt, the Obama administration has been considering TPP provisions that would allow foreign corporations operating within the United States to appeal regulations on the environment and banking that would be forced on American-owned businesses with no chance of reprieve. While the United States could be sanctioned for failing to impose regulations on American-run businesses, multinational corporations are practically encouraged to do as much because the TPP outlines a clear avenue to file an appeal. If one of the eight Pacific nations chooses to do as much, their plea would be heard by an international tribunal that could overrule US law.”

http://tinyurl.com/c3ghukc

“Trade officials from the U.S. and eight Pacific Rim nations – Australia, Brunei, Chile, Malaysia, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, and Vietnam – are in intensive, closed door negotiations to sign [the] Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) ‘Free Trade’ Agreement by summer 2012. Every Pacific Rim nation from China and Russia to Indonesia and Mexico could eventually be included. There are draft texts for [the pact’s 26] chapters, most of which have nothing to do with trade, but rather impose limits on domestic food safety, health, environmental, and other policies. The governments won’t release the texts to the public. But 600 U.S. corporate ‘trade advisors’ have full access.”

http://tinyurl.com/bss3zf7

“Although the TPP has been branded a ‘trade’ agreement, the leaked text of the pact’s Investment Chapter shows that the TPP would:

– limit how U.S. federal and state officials could regulate foreign firms operating within U.S. boundaries, with requirements to provide them greater rights than domestic firms;

– extend the incentives for U.S. firms to offshore investment and jobs to lower-wage countries;

– establish a two-track legal system that gives foreign firms new rights to skirt U.S. courts and laws, directly sue the U.S. government before foreign tribunals and demand compensation for financial, health, environmental, land use and other laws they claim undermine their TPP privileges; and

– allow foreign firms to demand compensation for the costs of complying with U.S. financial or environmental regulations that apply equally to domestic and foreign firms.”

WHAT CAN YOU DO TO STOP TPP/TPPA, THE RISE OF CORPORATE FASCISM AND THE FALL OF DEMOCRACY?

I. Call to Action on the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (San Diego CA 7/2-10/2012):

http://tinyurl.com/7cg3dwr

http://www.ustr.gov/tpp

II. Citizen.org [mis]advises this…

A. “Contact your Senators, Representatives, and state legislators: ask them to demand release of the secret negotiating texts and stop the TPP corporate power tool agenda that slams us 99 percenters.”

B. “Write Pres. Obama: tell him that you loved his State of the Union focus on American manufacturing, but that his blue-print will be destroyed unless he gets his trade negotiators on a new track on TPP. We cannot afford another job-killing, unsafe-import-flooding, democracy-crushing NAFTA-style trade deal.”

…which we correct with this:

C. Re “A” and “B” above, keep in mind that the people you are appealing to are the corporate puppets and guilty parties responsible for the very wrongs you are trying to right, so don’t expect such impotent slacktivism to change anything.

D. The problem is not Obama and the Democrats. The solution is not Romney and the Republicans. The problem is all of the corporate-controlled Democratic AND Republican politicians – including Obama AND Romney. The solution is REVOLUTION.

E. Thomas Jefferson said “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.” It’s that time again…

Undeserved: Bushbamney’s Nobel Peace Prize, Peres’ Medal of Freedom, Sarsak’s Starvation in Indefinite Detention

Undeserved Obama Peres Sarsak

Undeserving Nobel Peace Prize recipient Obama awards Medal of Freedom to fellow war criminal Peres while soccer player Mahmoud Sarsak starves in Israeli jail.

UNDESERVED: BUSHBAMNEY’S NOBEL PEACE PRIZE, PERES’ MEDAL OF FREEDOM, SARSAK’S STARVATION IN INDEFINITE DETENTION

In a cruel twist of irony, Israeli President Shimon Peres was honored Wednesday night [6/13/2012] with the “Presidential Medal of Freedom” at a lavish White House feast while Mahmoud Sarsak, rising Palestinian soccer star, nears death by starvation. Sarsak is now on his 87th day of hunger strike to demand the basic human freedoms denied him by Peres’ government. To add insult to injury, Shimon Peres used this opportunity to present Obama with a petition to free an Israeli spy, Jonathan Pollard, who was caught leaking Pentagon secrets.

Peres is a man of extensive military and even insurgent background, who adopted religious views more extreme than the rest of his community. Peres has been quoted as saying that, as a child in Poland, he smashed his parents’ radio because they were listening during Sabbath. He joined the Haganah at a young age, an armed Jewish militia responsible for massacres, mass displacement and other human rights abuses. After the establishment of the state of Israel, Peres was in charge of the government’s weapons dealing. He was a fierce advocate of settlement activity, especially in his early career. He has been Minister of state, defense, communication, transportation and immigrant absorption, Prime Minister and is currently President. In his political career he has overseen massacres, wars, occupation, discrimination, human rights abuses, the breaking of political treaties and spearheaded Israel’s nuclear proliferation. His government currently detains Mahmoud Sarsak and over 500 other Palestinian political prisoners without charge or trial, against international human rights law.

According to his family, Mahmoud Sarsak had never cared about politics and spent all his waking moments thinking about and playing soccer. The Sarsaks are refugees from the city of Ashdod (approximately 20 miles south of Tel Aviv) but Mahmoud grew up in a refugee camp in southern Gaza. As a very young child, he excelled at playing soccer and by eleven he was already representing Palestine in the Youth Olympic Games in Tehran. He played on several teams including the Gaza Youth Sports Club and Rafah Sports Club. Due to the limited resources in the southern Gaza Strip, Sarsak moved to the north to play professionally. Soon outgrowing the Gazan league, Sarsak was selected to join one of the leading West Bank clubs. In 2009, he received the permits that Israel requires to go from one Palestinian territory to another and headed off to the West Bank to realize his dreams. Without any warning or explanation, Sarsak was arrested en route by the Israeli military. From his 2009 arrest until today, his peak athletic years have been wasted in Israeli jails. His detention under the vague “Unlawful Combatant” law [comparable to the indefinite detention provisions of NDAA 2012 as signed by Bushbamney on 12/31/2011] has been continually renewed without charge, trial or even allegation. Now he has spent almost three months in non-violent protest against the injustices leveled against him. Even if he survives his hunger strike, he will face many health issues that will prevent him from being a professional or possibly even recreational athlete.

Hors d’oevres and trophies for the militant, starvation and death for the peaceful civilian athlete. What kind of message are we in America trying to send to the world by giving freedom medals to the violent, and depriving the non-violent of their freedom?

Amerika: Neither Land of the Free Nor Home of the Brave

Amerika: Neither Land of the Free Nor Home of the Brave

If you are charged with a crime in Amerika, you are guilty unless you are rich. If you are struck by a drone from Amerika, you are guilty unless you survive.

 

AMERIKA: NEITHER LAND OF THE FREE NOR HOME OF THE BRAVE

“None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free.”–Goethe

As things stand, when corporate fascist puppet president Bushbamney signs NDAA 2013 (H.R. 4310, the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2013), bipartisan-sponsored Amendment 114 (based on H.R. 5736) will make it legal for the U.S. government to use Nazi Germany Goebbels-style “Big Lie” propaganda on its own citizens. And no doubt one of the biggest lies our ruling elite’s Demopublican operatives will continue selling us is that America is “the land of the free and the home of the brave”. That may have been somewhat accurate at some point in in our checkered past, but it’s certainly not true in today’s post-NDAA 2012 (Public Law 112-81) Fourth Reich “Amerika”.

 

LAND OF THE FREE?

How can Amerika be the land of the free when we have more laws on the books – and more people in prison for allegedly breaking them – than any other nation in the world?

Doubt that? Read this:

“So which country has the most laws regulating its citizenry? After looking high and low I discovered that the country with the most laws – not just today, but in all of history is… the United States. We not only have the most laws in all of history, but we also turn out more new laws and regulations to manage our people every single year than most countries turn out in decades.

“These new laws have come with an infusion of money into an expanded security system on the state and federal levels, including more public surveillance cameras, tens of thousands of security personnel and a massive expansion of a terrorist-chasing bureaucracy.”

http://tinyurl.com/88sq98d

“Half of the world’s prison population of about nine million is held in the US, China or Russia. Prison rates in the US are the world’s highest, at 724 people per 100,000.”


http://tinyurl.com/zkw7v

“Incarceration in the United States is one of the main forms of punishment and/or rehabilitation for the commission of felony and other offenses. The United States has the highest documented incarceration rate in the world. At year-end 2009 it was 743 adults incarcerated per 100,000 population. According to the U.S. Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) 2,266,800 adults were incarcerated in U.S. federal and state prisons, and county jails at year-end 2010 – about 0.7% of adults in the U.S. resident population. Additionally, 4,933,667 adults at year-end 2009 were on probation or on parole.”

HOME OF THE BRAVE?

How can Amerika be the home of the brave when our cowardly and illegal drone attacks are killing thousands of innocent civilians – many falsely counted as “combatants”, “militants” or “terrorists” – while at the same time more of our troops commit suicide every year than get killed in action?

Doubt that? Read this:

“Drones raise questions about the growing disconnect between the American public and its wars. Military ethicists concede that drones can turn war into a video game and, with no Americans directly at risk, more easily draw the United States into conflicts… The number of civilian deaths caused by drone strikes is unclear, and hotly contested. A report in February 2012 by the London-based Bureau of Investigative Journalism said that drone strikes on suspected militants in Pakistan have repeatedly targeted rescuers who responded to the scene of a strike, as well as mourners at subsequent funerals.”

http://tinyurl.com/kqtjwl

In Pakistan (an American “ally”) alone, through mid-August last year as many as 2,956 people were killed and another 1,158 injured by U.S. drone attacks. Many were labelled “militants”, but the death toll includes at least 175 children and as many as 781 verified civilians. Despite all this collateral damage, no more than 150 “named militants” were killed. And again, these statistics are for Pakistan alone. How many more innocent children, women and men have Bushbamney’s immoral drone strikes murdered in Afghanistan, the Middle East, Africa and elsewhere?

“Mr. Obama embraced a disputed method for counting civilian casualties that did little to box him in. It in effect counts all military-age males in a strike zone as combatants, according to several administration officials, unless there is explicit intelligence posthumously proving them innocent.”


http://tinyurl.com/6mpvawo

“From 2005 to 2010, [U.S.] service members took their own lives at a rate of approximately one every 36 hours. While suicides in the Air Force, Navy and Coast Guard have been relatively stable and lower than those of the ground forces, U.S. Army suicides have climbed steadily since 2004. The Army reported a record-high number of suicides in July 2011 with the deaths of 33 active and reserve component service members reported as suicides. Suicides in the Marine Corps increased steadily from 2006 to 2009, dipping slightly in 2010. It is impossible, given the paucity of current data, to determine the suicide rate among veterans with any accuracy. However, the VA estimates that a veteran dies by suicide every 80 minutes. Moreover, although only 1 percent of Americans have served in the military, former service members represent 20 percent of suicides in the United States.”

http://tinyurl.com/3stynxb

“For the second year (2010) in a row, more US soldiers killed themselves (468) than died in combat (462). ‘If you… know the one thing that causes people to commit suicide, please let us know,’ General Peter Chiarelli told the Army Times, ‘because we don’t know.’ Suicide is a tragic but predictable human reaction to being asked to kill – and watch your friends be killed – particularly when it’s for a war based on lies.”
