Why Voting is NOT in Your Best Interest

The U.S. government is constantly telling us to get out and VOTE.  It’s a farce.  The aim is to get Americans to buy into the LIE that their vote matters.  Why do I say this?  Because everything the government does is designed to make our votes NOT matter in the slightest.  Here’s why:

Campaign Financing Reform
Congress will never ratify true campaign financing reform.  It’s against THEIR interests to do so.  They want free money and lots of it pouring into their campaign war chests at all times and they’ve even made laws protecting their right to use that political money for personal use.

Citizens United
The Supreme Court ruled in 2010 (Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission) that corporations are people with free speech rights and their free speech equates to donating tons of money into political campaigns with zero accountability.

Ralph Nader, a lawyer who placed third in the popular vote in the presidential elections of 2000, 2004, and 2008, condemned the ruling, saying that “With this decision, corporations can now directly pour vast amounts of corporate money, through independent expenditures, into the electoral swamp already flooded with corporate campaign PAC contribution dollars.”

Sanda Everette, co-chair of the Green Party, stated that “The ruling especially hurts the ability of parties that don’t accept corporate contributions, like the Green Party, to compete.” Another Green Party officer, Rich Whitney, stated “In a transparently political decision, a majority of the US Supreme Court overturned its own recent precedent and paid tribute to the giant corporate interests that already wield tremendous power over our political process and political speech.”

Redistricting
Redistricting, better known as gerrymandering, the definition of which is manipulating the boundaries of an electoral constituency to establish a political advantage for a particular party or group .  Electoral districts are routinely redrawn to change the voter demographic.  This has been going on for many years.

Voter Suppression

Discouraging or preventing people from exercising the right to vote.  Voter suppression techniques include voter ID laws, voter caging (challenging the registration status of voters), intimidation of voters at polling places and felony disenfranchisement. Research has shown that suppression of voters has become an integral part of politics for both liberals and conservatives in the USA and across the Western World.

Voting Rights Act
In 2013 the Supreme Court invalidated an integral part of the landmark 1965 Voting Rights Act.  The justices ruled Congress has been using obsolete information in continuing to require nine states with a history of racial discrimination to obtain federal approval for changes to voting rules. In recent years, Democrats have accused Republicans at the state level of enacting measures including congressional redistricting and voter identification laws to suppress the vote of minority groups likely to support Democratic candidates.

Election Day Run Around
And lastly, or maybe firstly — how about the fact that while many countries make their election days a national holiday, we in America must try to squeeze in waiting in line to vote (and in some places, very long lines) during a regular work day while we have myriad other things to do including caring for ourselves, our children, ill relatives and so forth.

CONCLUSION

Americans should en masse NOT vote.  Nobody should go to the polls.  That way we’ll be telling our politicians that we actually noticed the wool they’ve been pulling over our eyes all these years.  The only people going to the polls would be the CEOs voting for their “first amendment” rights at the expense of everyone else’s.  That’s what they do anyway.  Maybe then our bullshitting politicians will get the hint that their asses are on the line.

The U.S. Leads the Way To Nowhere

Two days ago President Obama proclaimed that the United States would lead in the fight against Ebola.  That sounds nice, but the U.S. can’t even lead its way into the 21st century.  America – the land of greed, stupidity and hypocrisy.

We have a Congress of do-nothings except for when they want to boost their own salaries, take extended vacations and so called business travel jaunts to exotic places, grant themselves benefits like generous health insurance and numerous freebies, give themselves the ability to engage in insider trading … and the list goes on and on.

We have a government were all Republican candidates for President proclaim themselves to believe in the literal interpretation of the bible at the expense of science based evolution.    They’re a group of climate deniers who believe women have fewer rights than men and gays have fewer rights than anyone else and they make sure to put those anachronistic views into law by refusing to pass legislation that stops them dead in their tracks.  As a nation, women’s rights to safe abortions and family planning are attacked daily.  We have no Death with Dignity statutes.   Our medical system sucks and is behind most technologically advanced countries.  Our education system sucks and places close to the bottom as well.

Lead on Ebola?  Just like our country lead in Iraq and Afghanistan?  Our government lost many millions of tax payer dollars in Iraq and has never been accountable for anything.  We fought the terrorist Taliban in Afghanistan, the very same people we supplied weapons to thirty five years earlier.  But we don’t ever discuss that.  And now we’re supplying weapons in Syria to people who will most likely turn around and use them against us some years down the line.

Our government has wasted millions of dollars in military equipment in those countries and we don’t really want to discuss that too much either although the excuse the military gives is that it would be too expensive to ship the stuff home.  Our government didn’t have any problem shipping the stuff to those countries in the first place so how is it suddenly too expensive to bring it back home?  They would rather just leave equipment behind so our enemies can make good use of it.  Perhaps the locals will turn the tanks and humvees into porta potties or line them up end to end to create new bridges or maybe just rent them out to be turned into studio apartments.  That’s only after the equipment becomes useless as weapons.

Why should the U.S. have to lead at all?  If anyone should lead it would be the group Doctors Without Borders since they’ve been treating victims of the disease for about seven years now.  Europe isn’t exactly broken.  Let those nations take the lead on something, anything!  Just send money?  We always do.  Even when our own people go hungry, homeless and without medical treatment.  People in central California don’t even have water in their homes as a result of a 4-year long drought.  Where is government planning when it’s really needed?

The hypocrisy of America is that we are a free nation where everyone prospers.  We like to think of ourselves as technologically advanced and yet we can no longer get ourselves to the International Space Station, instead, having to rely on the Russians.  We are backward socially.  We allow close minded morons to make decisions because majority rules and the majority appears to be close minded religious conservatives and those who think corporate interests and profits are worth more than any group of individuals who work hard and long to make those corporations profitable in the first place.

We don’t lead.  We slack back and throw up our hands and say “Oh well” … and … “God bless America.”

Ozone Therapy that May Help Treat/Cure Ebola Ignored by Mainstream Medicine

The following video discusses how previously known therapies have been long forgotten and now totally ignored by mainstream medicine despite their being highly effective in treating and riding the body of bacteria and viruses.  Now with Ebola on the front lines, you have to wonder why our doctors and medical associations aren’t scrambling to renew the use of these therapies.  And once again the answer always must come back to big pharmaceutical companies ruling the planet at the expense of all our lives.

The next video shows Physicians Testimony on Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation and Ozone therapies for a variety of conditions.

Why The CDC is Incompetent and Not to be Trusted

THE CDC makes no sense.  It says it did everything right with respect to the Dallas Ebola victim, that he did not exhibit symptoms when he boarded a plane in Liberia and came to the U.S.  Considering the fact that there is a 21-day incubation period for the disease, he (and all travelers) should have been in quarantine for three weeks PRIOR to boarding the plane in the first place.

JULY 2014 – Six vials of smallpox were discovered in a storage room at an unguarded FDA lab in Maryland that once belonged to the US National Institutes of Health.  In all  they found 12 boxes containing 327 vials labelled with various unpleasant pathogens, from influenza and dengue fever to rickettsia and Q fever.

JUNE 20, 2014 – Anthrax Scare:  84 workers at CDC’s Atlanta headquarters were exposed to the deadly bacterium, Bacillus anthracis, after a breach at the agency’s Bioterrorism Rapid Response and Advanced Technology Laboratory. The number of workers being monitored for anthrax was revised from 75 when the lab breach was announced The previous Thursday.  Workers followed the wrong procedure to “inactivate” batches of Bacillus anthracis, the bacterium that causes anthrax. The agency came under attack on June 13 for “serious” airflow problems in its  Atlanta building that houses anthrax, SARS and monkeypox.  It stems from a poorly engineered airflow system in Building 18..

MARCH 2014 – Staffers sent samples of a fairly harmless strain of bird flu to scientists at the US Department of Agriculture. To the agricultural team’s alarm, every chicken they infected with the virus died. It was only after 21 birds had succumbed that they discovered why: the CDC samples had been contaminated with a strain of highly lethal H5N1 bird flu. Natural outbreaks of the virus have killed hundreds of people in Asia.

At least three different incidents between 2007 and 2012 called into question the CDC’s laboratory safety and security systems, which are designed to keep dangerous pathogens like smallpox, monkey pox and SARS from escaping into the general population.

In 2007, backup generators failed to keep airflow systems working during a power outage.

In 2008, the door to a lab housing Coxiella Burnetii was found to be sealed with duct tape after a ventilation system malfunction. Nine workers were tested for the bacterium, which causes Q fever, but none were infected.

2009-2010 – Security doors were left unlocked to an area where experiments occur with dangerous germs.  “The doors in question here are but one layer of multiple layers of security when it comes to both the animals and the agents that are worked on,” CDC spokesman Tom Skinner said at the time.

There are probably more stupid breaches.  This just goes to show that when the agency says it knows what it’s doing and tries to assure all of us that it does it’s just plain nonsense.

California Governor Jerry Brown a Total Sell Out

Jerry Brown, California’s criminal traitor of a governor is intent on selling out the state to illegal immigrants.  First it was giving them driver’s licenses, now more free education and even professional licensing for doctors and lawyers.  Why even have formal citizenship in this country if jerks like this can get away with this kind of absurdity?

He diverted hundreds of millions of dollars in polluter fees into building the doomed bullet train which is billions of dollars over budget and will most likely never be a reality in our lifetimes.

At the same time he does these irresponsible things he has the audacity to lecture the state’s Democratic leadership on the need for fiscal responsibility.  The man is an idiot.

Democrats are the worst offenders of such pandering followed a close second by the ridiculous Republicans.  Both are so desperate to get elected/reelected that they sell out to anyone who can cast a ballot.  If  dogs could vote they’d be giving tummy rubs to one and all.

Politicians are greedy pigs.  In the case of Brown, though, he doesn’t have to worry too much about reelection since he has a huge lead over his republican opponent Neel Kashkari.  Why? We have no idea other than to believe that Californians are supreme suckers to catering to illegal immigrants on every level possible and because the majority are democrats they simply vote that way anytime they can.  Of course the alternative is to vote for a climate change/evolution denying, abortion banning bible thumper of a republican jerk off.  There is simply no real choice; no common sense candidate.

USAViews stands by eliminating the Republican Party from our lexicon and punching the Democrats in the head to wake them up to smell the shit.  Because the U.S. is going down the shitter faster than that fantasy bullet train.

A World of Responsibility

The world is complex for sure: unrest, war, starvation, drought, overpopulation, climate crises, religious extremism.  And what is the world in whole or in part doing about any of it?  Piecemeal actions which ressolve nothing.

People and nations must take responsibility individually and en masse.

AFRICA:  This continent for the most part is happily still living in the 19th century with its massive corruption and dictators.  It is over populated on drought stricken land that cannot support its people.  Religion and cultural norms dictate that women are genitally mutilated; no access to contraception; rampant poaching of animals for the benefit or profit and to fill the bellies of backward Asians who believe rhino horn is going to make them virile, as just one example.  And now Ebola in West Africa where the uneducated population makes the situation dire beyond belief.  Really, what has Africa done to resolve its own problems in all these years?  Absolutely nothing or very little indeed.  And so should the west help more?  Only insofar to maintain strict quarantine and no travel into or out of the affected regions.  As for poachers, they should be eviscerated!

USA:  Get your own house in order first and foremost.  Racial disharmony abounds; aids and abets rampant illegal immigration while at the same time there is homelessness, income inequality of unprecedented proportions, lack of universal healthcare, Wall Street and corporate abuses and takeover of the country and a government and Supreme Court that permits it; religious extremism; endless wars on other nations sucking our economy dry; government corruption with little in the way of prosecution; constantly supplying foreign aid to other nations that don’t really need it (such as oil rich nations) while claiming there are no funds for social programs at home; disrespect and nonsupport of military veterans; environmental pollution and wildlife decimation all in the name of profit; supporting disreputable countries like China and allowing it and other foreign entitles to take control of the U.S.

MIDEAST:  Crazed religious extremism, corruption, rampant abuses against women and female children, human rights abuses, regional turmoil and the unwillingness to negotiate and resolve issues.  Why should the rest of the world care to help when the countries in the region support and fund terrorism and genocide and happily hide their heads in the sand about everything?

EUROPE:  Take a stand.  It wanted a unified Europe yet all that’s done is allow unmonitored travel between nations which leads to illegal and unrestricted immigration into countries that no longer have their own identities and which supports terrorism; lets Russia get away with invasion of a sovereign nation.  Europe has enough money to support itself and yet it expects the U.S. to do its dirty work on the war front and with respect to regional security.

CHINA:  The world’s thief.  Rampant corruption, piracy of the world’s intellectual, security and other resources; militarism, human rights abuses; polluter extraordinaire-air, water, land; nonstop fraud, selling toxic products to the rest of the world; lack of hygiene and control over pandemics-avian flu; world takeover of other nation’s real estate, resources and corporations.

VATICAN:  This religious “nation” forces overpopulation by disallowing contraception and abortion on people who cannot afford to support more children throughout the world.   All the unwanted children should be sent to the Vatican where they must remain fed, housed, clothed and educated until they are 21.  The Vatican certainly has the wealth to do it.

Africa and the Middle East need to move into the 21st century.  The USA needs to stop playing policeman to the world and instead support its own people.  Europe needs to keep its regional individuality while stopping the spread of terrorism through its borders and maintain its own security.  China needs to clean up its act on every front before the world will have anything to do with it.

And finally, the world should wash its hands of the Middle East and let the region self destruct in endless wars between religious extremists of one side against the other.  It is such a sickening display of dictatorships and atrocities that appear to be condoned through the actions and inactions of the countries in that part of the world.  Solution: quarantine, sanctions until it implodes from its own horror, weight and stupidity.  The same could be said about Africa.  China should have to fend for itself.  Why is the world actually supporting China’s takeover of the rest of the world?
