OK...NO ONE can see my messy desk now! My livingroom/office is proof that all matter strives to attain a lower energy level - entropy and chaos theory in action.
Why is it that it takes TWO to have sex, but only women are seen as undeserving whores who need to be punished with forced birth if an unwanted pregnancy results? Making men step up to the plate with miserly child support payments doesn’t begin to compensate for all of the negative permanent changes that pregnancy and birth does to women’s bodies, and that is IF she survives the ordeal.
Apparently Don Blankenship didn’t get the memo: millions of poor Americans have to live like that right here in our own backyard. Over 16 million American households are without gas or electricity (or both) because their services were shut off after they’ve been priced out by skyrocketing utility companies’ rates. In northwestern Pennsylvania where I live, low-income electric utility customers are forced to pay an average of $175/mo for their electricity alone. Residential utility rates jumped by 41% in 2005 after Hurricanes Katrina and Rita ravaged the Gulf Coast. But the average person's income did not increase proportionately to withstand these unaffordable rates. Pennsylvania’s governor Ed Rendell signed Act 201 into law in November of 2004 allowing utility companies to shut off poor people for inability to pay, even in the dead of winter. Having your gas or electric shut off in the winter is a death sentence in Pennsylvania. And there isn’t “all this help out there” for the needy that people think there is.
So who is benefiting from this “cheap electricity”? It sure as hell isn’t America’s poor who’ve been priced out and had their utilities shut off.
Every American would certainly benefit from free/low-cost electricity, such as that derived from hydrogen proton membrane exchange fuel cell technology, solar and wind.
Don Blankenship also confuses the definition of free market capitalism with feudalism. Feudalism exists when a small handful of wealthy elites band together to keep other industries out of a region, which keeps out more good jobs for people – thus artificially creating an inflated and permanent underclass. This tactic has worked for greedy corporate interests to maintain a docile few middle class people. It whips them into complacency with an unjust status quo and a blind obedience to the agenda of the sociopathic elite. Rich men like Blankenship are nothing but social parasites that obtained their wealth and power by creating poverty and despair by design – on top of the ecological destruction left in their wake.
In a true free market, Americans would not be artificially held in debt peonage to utility monopolies and oil, natural gas, and coal cartels. In a true free market, Bruce DePalma’s “N-Machine” - device that produces free electricity - would have reached the mass market. Freedom from unaffordable utility rates would have lifted most of America’s poor out of poverty and fostered healthy and ecologically responsible economic growth in communities across the nation. But Bruce DePalma died under very suspicious circumstances within days before his N-Machine was ready for mass production with patents pending.
Don Blankenship holds himself up as a nice guy who gives out two toys and a turkey to select poor families in Mingo County, WV and Pike County, KY at Christmas. He calls this highly publicized $200,000 annual charity a “Christmas Extravaganza.” Blankenship was quoted as to having said he “wished there wasn’t a need for it, but there is.”
If Blankenship truly wished there wasn’t a pressing need to alleviate poverty in the southern coalfields of Appalachia’s poorest counties, he would not have helped to create that poverty to begin with by using his economic muscle to keep other businesses and industry out (thus keeping out jobs) and he would not have rendered hundreds of acres of properties uninhabitable and unusable that cannot be fully restored for a cost that runs into the tens of millions of dollars. His charity is nothing more than a high profile publicity stunt to make him look like he’s such a nice guy.
But this same “nice guy” thought nothing of verbally and physically abusing his former personal maid, Deborah K. May, whom he paid a paltry $16,000 a year (with no health and dental benefits). May was forced to quit her job due to the abuse she suffered at his hands after which Blankenship then tried to have her unemployment benefits denied on the grounds that she “voluntarily quit.” Maybe Blankenship really thinks he is being a nice guy. But “nice” compared to whom? The Burmese military? Idi Amin? Pol Pot? Foday Sankoh, the Taliban?
Massey Energy, under the direction and leadership of this “nice guy”, has poisoned the well water in communities throughout Logan, Boone, Mingo, and McDowell counties in West Virginia due to coal waste seepage into the groundwater. The majority of the citizens there cannot afford the luxury of bottled water; they’re hard pressed to put their next meal on the table. In areas such as Prenter, the well water is so contaminated that skin contact is inadvisable. But the people cannot afford to buy bottled water for drinking and cooking, let alone bathing and washing clothes. Blankenship bought off the West Virginia legal system to lawyer Massey’s way out of having to recompense West Virginians that have suffered because their soil and water supply was contaminated, rendering their property worthless and their health irreparably damaged. He thinks couple of toys and a turkey on Christmas is sufficient for giving back to the communities that his company has destroyed for the sake of wealth-grabbing and bleeding West Virginians dry. What a good Samaritan! (NOT!).
No one has a Constitutional right to get filthy rich at the expense of permanently destroying the natural resources of an entire region along with the lives of those who dwell there by ruining the drinking water and the soil so that food can’t be grown.
The toxic cocktail of heavy metals and chemicals in the coal slurry has been directly linked to abnormally high rates of birth defects, physical deformities, and developmental disabilities in children, diseases, cancer, and premature disability and death rates in Mingo County – the poorest county in the entire United States. Coincidently, Mingo County has a poverty rate close to 30% and has borne the brunt of the most mountaintop removal activity.
Mountaintop removal has not created good jobs – it has eliminated many good jobs and created an environmental disaster that makes the Exxon-Valdez fiasco look like small potatoes. Once mountains are blown up, they don’t grow back. The entire ecosystem of the eastern and southern United States is at peril if the “Mountain State” is turned into one big desolate and contaminated “Moonscape State”. America's "homegrown" poor from Detroit to Appalachia are living like those in 3rd World nations because of not having clean safe water or other life-sustaining utilities – forget the cheap electricity.

"The world's richest and most powerful 130 families only need a global total of 500,000 peons to be kept alive to serve them as slaves in their New World Order utopia. There are plans openly discussed about UN troops being deployed here on American soil in the event of a state of emergency. The government medical intelligentsia has openly called for culling the US population by deliberate withholding of lifesaving medical care from those it deems "unworthy"; the old and the disabled. What do you think their plan is for the majority of 300 million Americans? The corporatocracy and the government they control, which in turn controls you, doesn't care about you. If you think you'll be spared, you're an idiot who ought to be arrested for possession of brains with intent to use."

If you really care about our troops in Iraq, then ask your Congresscritters why the health of our troops is being sacrificed for Haliburton/KBR profits - on YOUR tax dollars!!!!
Then breasts are good enough to be seen in public doing this:
In an age of being inundated with all things sexual, constantly bombarded with images of practically naked girls in thong bikinis leaving nothing to the imagination at almost every beach, swimming pool, and water park; it is breastfeeding mothers who are criminalized and discriminated against.
Nursing moms and their babies are being unlawfully ejected from public places where women and children normally have every right to be.
They have threatened, bullied, shamed, humiliated, and coerced breastfeeding mothers (and their infants) into filthy toilet stalls, back allies, and cars - regardless of sweltering heat or bitter cold. Women discreetly nursing have been ejected off of airlines and evicted from restaurants by these sanctimonious asshats.
The irony is that these same "morally upright" people dictating control over mothers and babies concerning public breastfeeding are usually the same ones who are "pro-life" neocons. They have successfully gotten laws passed making obtaining contraceptives more difficult for women who seek to prevent unplanned pregnancies. Pharmacists can legally refuse to fill a prescription for Plan B for rape victims, as well as the Pill - based on religious and moral conviction.
But they're not really pro-life. They're pro-forced birth and they're anti-woman. Their position subordinates the human rights and civil liberties of women to fetuses. Under no other circumstance is any person forced by law to be a walking life support system for another human; for another human to live off of their bodily organs for 9 months. A parent cannot be legally forced to donate bone marrow or kidneys to already-born children - even in a life or death situation. A woman's uterus is no different. It is a part of her body.
But when a poor woman wants to donate her uterus to a fertilized egg, give birth, become a mother and provide the best means of nourishment for her baby after it's born; they not only want to deny her the right to publicly breastfeed, they also want to forcibly sterilize her if she's poor and unmarried so she doesn't have anymore babies.
Apparently, poor women don't deserve the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness in the form of support for their right to choose. That's a social class privilege reserved for the wealthy.
These nimrods want to restrict how, where, and when all mothers can feed their babies by denying the civil liberties of all nursing mothers. They're not satisfied with controlling women's wombs, they want to control women's breasts, too. They want to force all pregnant women to give birth, even if the woman conceived from rape.
When personal autonomy and control of women's bodies, in whole or in part, is taken away from women, that's slavery: it's taking ownership of the bodies and free choices of other people. All of this is couched in the name of morality, decency, and "class."
Any woman who fails, for whatever reason, to conform to society's fraudulent standard of beauty of being a 20-something size zero Barbie doll doesn't even deserve to be allowed to participate fully in society according to these anti-woman, anti-baby, and anti-freedom elitists - only thin, young, non-pregnant and "pretty" women deserve to be seen in public and in the workplace. The message behind this double standard is crystal clear: In our class-stratified society, wealthy powerful corporate interests perpetuate hate against women, hate for families, and hate for all realistic facets of womanhood that fall outside the realm of the fraudulent standard of beauty. Affluent men view women as status possessions whose only purpose and real value is if we can be shown off as "trophies."
Elitist men with mommy issues have a retinue of Barbie Doll trophy wives agreeing with them, thus helping to perpetuate the status quo. The Barbies' mentality is not far removed from that of the "house Negro" in the antebellum South - the "Massa" has been good to them. The rest of us are just "uppity no-account bitches", written off as "trailer trash" who need to be kept "in our place." Where's Gloria Steinhem when we need her?
The picture you are looking at is that of PA Hwy 61 North leading into Centralia. Subsidence from the heat of a raging 46 year old subterranean mine fire forced the closure and rerouting of this state highway in Columbia County, Pennsylvania. Please check out the interesting story about how the government let 3,700 acres of fossil fuel go up in smoke - literally. Read the facts about the disaster in Centralia, PA here. This one more way in which the government has failed to protect the public interests. If we cannot trust the government with this disaster, why should we trust that our best interests will be served by Real ID?
How can we trust Congress to act in good faith when history shows they've abused their plenary power in dealing with the original Americans? The judiciary also has a history that is murky.
Does the case Buck v. Bell ring a bell?
If the cases against human rights activists such as Mumia Abu Jamal and Leonard Peltier are highly circumspect, do you really think YOUR rights won't be next on the chopping block?
When's the last time government leaders admitted that they were wrong and rectified their errors in any meaningful and adequate way? Toxic Superfund sites, contaminated ground and drinking water, destroyed natural resources caused by subterranean mine fires that all occurred because powerful corporate interests come before people's basic human rights is NOT progress and NOT "civilized."
