The EU ( most likely influenced by the US)  delivered an ultimatum to Ukraine:  "Make a trade

agreement with the EU or Russia; not both."  The EU is acting like a "school yard" spoiled brat.

People, please, send a multitude of emails, demanding some sense of adult responsibility.   I sent

one, expressing my astonishment that the EU would rather have people being killed, rather than

having Ukraine have agreements with Russia as well as the EU.

Also, the EU has "OK'd" GMO corn to be allowed into the EU.  Those countries opposed had better

break away from the EU, before they are, totally, destroyed. Clearly, the EU is being controlled

by US corporations.  GMO's are bad,bad, bad!  They are like NAFTA:  toxic!

 

BDS on Israel, Egypt, and the US until Egypt opens its border to Gaza, Israel allows the open sea to

Gaza,  Israel stops demolitions in Palestine, and Israel recognizes Palestinian rights.

Boycott Amazon.com, the company that company has been awarded the "World's Worst Boss"

award by the International Trade Union Confederation.  "The warehouses are dehumanizing hives...

shockingly big--more than 16 football fields big, or eight city blocks--pickers must constantly

crisscross the expanse. Then, there are miles of sever-foot-high shelves running along the

three-story buildings, requiring the swarm of pickers to stoop down, crawl along, or stretch way

up continuously. They are directed by handheld computers to each target. ...Then they scan the

pick and must put it on the right track of seven miles of conveyor belts running through the

facility, immediately after which they're dispatched by the computer to find the next product.....

The pickers' computers don't just dictate where they're to go next, but, how many seconds Amazon's

time-motion experts have calculated it should take them to get there. The scanners also record the time

each worker actually takes---information that is fed directly into a central, all-knowing computer.

The times of every picker are reviewed and scored by managers who have an unmerciful mandate

to fire those exceeding their allotted seconds.

Mac McClelland, a fine investigative reporter...took a job as a picker in an Amazon-contracted

warehouse...McClelland was reminded again and again by ever-present time monitors it is not 30

minutes and 1 second, but 29 min. and 59 seconds.....if you are not back at your next picking

spot on the dot, you earn penalty points. Never mind that the half-hour lunch period,...includes

the time to get through the metal detector and use the disgustingly overcrowded bathroom.....

and stand in line to clock out and back in. Should you desire...a warm meal, there's another

line to use the microwave. Likewise the two 15 min. breaks....include scampering a half mile

or more to the break room, waiting in line to pass through the despised metal detector and another

line if you need to pee. The...break is usually reduced to under 7 min.

...managers bark "Zoom, Zoom! pick it up! picker's pace guys!  Amazon warns new initiates that

there are 500 visible cameras....and 500 hidden cameras.

Amazon warehouse employees are "contingent" hires: temporary, seasonal, part-time laborers

entirely subject to the employers' whim....When sales perk up and managers demand you do

a 12- hour shift with no notice...you must do it or be fired......(no holidays guaranteed.)  ...

no health insurance, no vacation time, no scheduled raises, no promotion track, no route to

a full time or permanent job, no regular schedule, no job protection and --of course--no union.

Bezos ...has gone all out with intimidation tactics, hiring a notorious union-busting firm to crush

any whisper of worker organizing."  The Hightower Lowdown, vol 16, No 8, Aug. 2014. See

STOP THE WOMAN HATE!!!!!!

People's religious obligations with regard to birth control, stop with what they want for their own bodies; not to the decisions others may make.  The world is, grossly, over-populated; so, it makes no sense to deprive

people of birth control.  In fact, it is cruel. Sex has been proven to be healthful for couples, and it makes

people who love each other, feel closer, emotionally. there is nothing in the Bible that say sex is only for

procreation.

RE: Paul Davis Ryan, the new Rep. Vice-Pres. candidate, just today, reported by CBS news to have stated his belief

in self-reliance. Well, he is a product of dependence, if reports in US News ( report by Bobby Kyle Sauer) and Politico

( report by Kevin Sirilli ) are correct.( both Aug 11, 2012 )They both write, that Paul Ryan, after his father died, received

 enough Social Security benefits, from age 16 to age 18, to fund his college education at Miami Univ. of Ohio.

 

 

 

I'm wondering if we will need to fight a religious civil war. It seems, that too many people are trying to force their

religious beliefs on the rest of us. They claim to be against abortions for any reason; because it is killing babies.

Why is it, that they aren't upset about illegal wars, with all of the killing, maiming and deforming of babies that occurs from

the use of depleted uranium weapons?  I have to conclude, that it is, really, about controlling women; because, if these

people, really, cared about killing, we wouldn't have these wars.

land taken, illegally, from native Palestinians and Bedouins and given to

This appears to be a plot to trigger a warring atmosphere, to provide a reason for

the Israeli government to take even more land.  (More on Palestine below.)

 Can we stop the madness?

From PeaceWorks KC, May 2010 news letter - Nuclear fuel reprocessing =

weapons proliferation:   ( This is so important, that I'm putting the whole article on here.)

 

'In nuclear power plants, the highly radioactive fuel rods are removed from the reactor

after about five years of fissioning and are replaced with fresh rods. Reprocessing involves

physically chopping up the irradiated rods and then dissolving them in acid to extract plutonium

and uranium. Separate plutonium can be used to make nuclear weapons. Commercial

reprocessing currently takes place in five countries -- France, India, Japan, Russia and the

United Kingdom.

No permanent waste repository exists on the planet for the disposal of fuel rods. Irradiated rods

are, therefore, being stored at every reactor site. They remain vulnerable to terrorists and

accidental releases, and they increase the radiation exposure of workers. The U.S. nuclear

industry is promoting reprocessing  as its latest illusion of a solution to the high- level radioactive

waste problem.

A fraction of the separated plutonium from reprocessing is intended for use in new reactor fuel.

When used, though, the new fuel would then itself generate more plutonium, possibly releasing

harmful particles and rays for at least 240,000 years.

Because  the solid irradiated rods are transformed into high-level radioactive liquids and sludges,

reprocessing increases, rather than decreases, the volume of homeless radioactive waste. Waste

byproducts cannot be reused; they have to be abandoned on-site or dumped elsewhere. For

example, French uranium wastes, left over from reprocessing, have been shipped to Siberia for

indefinite storage.

Both Presidents, Ford and Carter, banned commercial reprocessing in the U.S.; because they

feared that the technology's spread would be used for the worldwide proliferation of nuclear weapons.

In addition to the use of extracted plutonium in nuclear weapons, the left-over reprocessing wastes

can be used to turn an ordinary bomb into a dirty bomb, that is designed to disperse radioactivity.

President Reagan overturned the reprocessing ban, but the exorbitant cost of building and operating

such plants has kept reprocessing from being revived in the U.S., since 1972.

Radioactive wastes are released directly into the environment during the routine operation of

reprocessing plants. The British Sellafield plant has dumped its waste liquids, laced with a total of

over 1,000 pounds of plutonium into the Irish Sea.  The French La Haque plant discharges tens of

millions of gallons of liquid radioactive waste into the English Channel every year.

Reprocessing plants, large enough to handle current U.S. irradiated fuel inventories, would cost an

estimated $40- $60 billion each to build, and at least $3 billion each year to operate. Taxpayers

and/or electric ratepayers would, almost certainly, bear those added burdens, not the nuclear power

industry.

Because of the 2010 cancellation of the proposed geologic disposal facility for irradiated fuel rods at

Yucca Mountain, Nevada nuclear power promoters are, again, advocating reprocessing.

The U.S. nuclear industry, the national nuclear labs, and the French government's atomic giant, Areva,

successfully lobbied the George W. Bush administration, in 2006, to launch the Global Nuclear Energy

Partnership, designed to revive reprocessing and expand nuclear power worldwide.

Although, President Obama has cancelled GNEP's environmental review, funding for reprocessing is

continuing within the Energy Department's "Fuel Cycle Research and Development" program.'

 

If you care about this planet, call your legislators and ask for the cessation of reprocessing of

irradiate rods. While you are at it, ask for the end of nuclear processing, period!  There is no

 solution for nuclear waste. The world has gone mad. Can we stop this?

 

( Workers, who have worked next to the Kansas City nuclear parts plant, have been getting sick and dying,

for years, and in spite of reports, it is just now being studied by the government, after NBCAction news

started reporting on the sickness and deaths. The government has approved of the building of a new

such plant in a near-by town. Why don't we stop "majoring" in war?????) 

See http://www.peaceworkskc.org .

 

Re.  The Kansas City Plant: ( From Henry Stoever, chair of the PeaceWorks board, and Jane Stoever's

letter.)

"For about three years, members of PeaceWorks, Kansas City, and the KC Chapter of Physicians for

Social Responsibilty (PW/PSR-KC) have actively opposed the Kansas City Plant, operated by

Honeywell for the National Nuclear Security Administration. The plant, part of the Bannister Federal

Complex, makes non-nuclear parts for nuclear warheads, such as the W-76 and W-88 (delivered by

Trident II submarine-launched ballistic missiles), the W-78 and W87 ( delivered by Minuteman III

intercontinental ballistic missiles), and the B-61 gravity bomb ( delivered by B-2 bombers).

Activists in PW/PSR-KC are confronting the local nuke factory. We testified repeatedly to the City

Council and, on Feb. 4, watched it approve the new NNSA campus at Botts Road and MO Hwy. 150.

Through the plan, Kansas City gives the new plant a $45 million tax cut and commits up to $10 million

for local infrastructure, such as highway expansion.* Private financing for the new plant, estimated to cost

$1.2 billion over a span of 20 years, will keep it hidden from federal budget reports citizens can track.

This situation baffles and appalls us. City and federal funding for nukes escalates, while people in our city

and our world go hungry and homeless."

 

From: Peaceworks, September 2010:

Here is how the transaction goes:     "GSA will sublease the plant from the private developer, CerterPoint

Zimmer(CPZ), a limited liability corporation formed by Chicago-based Centerpoint and Kansas City-based

Zimmer Real Estate Services. CPZ has a 20- year lease-to-purchase deal from the current owners, the

Planned Industrial Expansion Authority (PIEA), the agency of the City of Kansas City (MO), that is subsidizing

the whole project through the sale of about $700 million in municipal bonds. Strangely enough, the PIEA

bought the 186-acre field last month, (July, 2010) for more than $5 million from CPZ, which just "happened" to

own the land NNSA chose for its new production plant. The PIEA retains title to the property."

(This means that Kansas City, Missouri will own a federal nuclear bomb production plant.)  The NNSA,

 The National Nuclear Security Administration, will sublease it from the GSA.

Re: the coup in Honduras -----    See http://www.democracynow.org

This coup was carried out by Honduran soldiers, who trained at the School of the

Amricas, and this school ( now called WHINSEC)   is still training Honduran

soldiers.   ASK PRES. OBAMA TO CLOSE THIS SCHOOL, AND DEMAND

THE RETURN OF PRES. ZALAYA TO HIS PLACE IN THE  HONDURAN

GOVERNMENT. HE WAS ELECTED.  He will hold the planned election, and the

citizens can vote "Yes" or "No." That is democracy. A coup is not democracy.

Ask Obama to fix our trade and globalization policies:

No to new WTO agreements until there is a change in philosophy of

these agreements. All previous agreements need to be changed; because:

 

   "  The   WTO is a reason why the mortgage meltdown in the U.S. fatally

contaminated the entire financial industry here and abroad. .......

 

      The  WTO prevents the U.S. from limiting the size of foreign banks

  and other financial firms, even if we set such limits on domestic firms. ....

 

..... The WTO means that the U.S. taxpayers may have to bail out foreign

banks, too. ........

 

....The WTO obligates the U.S. to a 'standstill provision' which prevents

us from undoing many of our crazy deregulation policies with respect

to a vast array of banking, insurance, securities and other financial

services we submitted to WTO jurisdiction. ........

 

The WTO forbids the use of  Buy American or Buy Local programs. This

undercuts the effectiveness of the stimulus bill -- the $20 billion for

data-entry workers to put medical records into electronic format likely

will go offshore rather than employing workers here and thus recycling

through our economy. ......     resulting agreements provide special

incentives and protections for U.S. firms that offshore investments and jobs

to low wage countries. ..........

 

Timothy Geitner led U.S. efforts, during the Clinton administration, to use

the WTO to impose "this new U.S. financial casino model " on the rest of

the world."  ------

The people, who helped to cause the problem are not likely to fix it. Obama's

campaign received $17 million from Wall Street and $980,945. from Goldman Sachs.

He has put people in charge, who caused the problem. Those people

should have been fired, and ridiculous CEO pay should stop.

Regarding our frequent involvement in war:

 

We are subject to the control of a Congressional

military complex, that we need to take power

from. We need to ask President Obama to assume

the military.   (We are, almost , being controlled by

a military junta.)  The citizenry needs to wake up.)

A country's military, its support services,

its police departments, and its jails

 should not be privatized ( made into

for profit industries).

80% of recoverable offshore oil and are drilling, only, 1/4 of that.  ........

Many Democrats are voting like progressives most of the time, but take turns

or to prevent good legislation from passing, they will take "their turn", voting

I' ve learned that a "write-in candidate" has to participate in the process by signing

 a special form, and we have to get delegates in place, just like balloted candidates;

 so this would be only the thing to do when the particular candidate was not running

to keep his seat in Congress.

http://www.wikileaks.ch   -- News  --Julian Assange  ( Adrian Lamo was a tattle-tale  --

said he thought some one might get killed because of the tape. Well, guess what! Innocent

people had been killed.( Apparently, if you aren't in the US military, you aren't someone.)

( Oh! and even if in the US military, if you are a woman, you aren't a person either, are you?-

you know the rapes.)

 That was the point in getting the information out, Adrian,you twit!

You have no sense of morality!  People in Iraq and Afghanistan know about US atrocities,

 whether people in the US know or not. They are there, and they know about US policy.)

See, also, http://www.salon.com/news/opinion/glen_greenwald/2011/04/20/manning.

US citizens have a right to know how tax money is spent. We have a right to know how our

military personnel are trained. We have a right to know how our state department behaves.

IT IS OUR TAX MONEY !!!!!!    And we have a right to way-in on wheather we enter

into war, and those, who are for it, should go fight it, with their own money; because wars

are fought to please corporations.
