Hey Kids!

We must face the facts: Very soon only rich people are going to be able to afford higher education.

It is time to adapt to our changing environment.

As youth find their educational and economic opportunities disappearing before their eyes, perhaps it is time to think outside the box and consider alternative educational prospects that take into account the likely financial situation young people will soon find themselves facing…

Well never fear, Kids! Dana always has your back and I happen to know of a great opportunity to learn the skills of the future! This unique opportunity will not only provide invaluable expertise for dealing with this bewildering new world in which you find yourselves trapped, but the experience itself is guaranteed to change your entire view of life!

Yes, I’m talking about…

Club Fed!

Have you ever considered how you could stretch the family budget during those lean times at the end of the month by knowing how to pick locks and neutralize alarm systems? How would you like to supplement your slave-wage by cooking a little meth in your spare time? Think how handy it could be to know how to steal someone’s identity and credit card numbers! Do you know the best places to stab someone in order to kill them? How would you like to learn to produce fire, alcoholic beverages, or lethal weapons under almost any circumstance?

Well Club Fed offers intensive graduate-level courses on all the above subjects!

School is now in session!

In a move that reflects their genius, your government has concentrated most of the criminal masterminds throughout the entire country into confined intensely personal spaces where they associate with nothing but other criminals who have absolutely nothing to do but learn to hate the world even more than they already did — and to share their trade secrets!

It’s education by immersion!

But wait! There’s even more!

In addition to the educational opportunities there is also the fact that Club Fed is a socialist paradise! 100% of your schooling is paid for by your government! Food, lodging, and a semblance of health care — everything is provided to all residents completely free of charge!

So relax! Make yourself at home! Slip off your cheap rubber slip-ons and loosen your chains!

Consider some of Club Fed’s amenities:

The Menu: Tasteless and largely inedible slop of a largely unidentifiable nature!

The Cuisine: Exactly compliments the menu!

The Recreational Activities: Staring at walls and walking in circles!

The Services: 24 hour armed security! A change of bedding every few weeks! Restroom facilities you can rest assured are cleaned after every few hundred uses!

Nature lovers will be amazed at the incredible diversity of the parasitic insect population and at the proliferation of disease-bearing microorganisms!

Enjoy dull and uninteresting conversation with the ignorant and untrained staff!

In addition, you can also put some edge into your life by spending every hour of every day surrounded by violent psychopaths!

(You have to watch out for some of the other inmates too…)

Or — if you prefer — you can just relax and enjoy the scenic view featuring vast expanses of razor-wire glittering picturesquely in the sunset; the entire scene framed by quaint little gun towers…

And in addition to all that, you can also participate in the Prison Industrial Complex, the fastest growing industry in the United States!

And best of all:

There are neither women nor children nor any normal social interaction of any kind to distract you from your studies!

You have all the time you need to devote to learning the fine arts of thievery corruption and mayhem!

Come learn from the Masters!

Act now to take advantage of this special offer!

Club Fed!

It’s a Stop That You’ll Never Forget!

Thousands of Positions Available Immediately!

******************************************

I know there have been numerous peer-reviewed academic studies done on the return on investment garnered by education spending but it is really hard to find these studies on the Internet. (It’s a conspiracy, I tell you!)

I know that these studies invariably came up with a number between 1,000% and 1,700% return on education investment, though, so even disregarding the numerous social benefits of educating your populace (which some of those fringe radical anarchist-type people think is more important than the economic concerns) the economic return on investment is still the best long-term investment in the future that it is possible for a government to make.

I am old school and I am still a total amateur at finding things online (in addition to being much too impatient by nature) so if anyone else can find any links to these studies I would like to include them in my arsenal of information.

******************************************

Communist Dictator

During my search for those education studies, though, I found this very interesting chart on education spending as a percentage of GDP. This information will surprise the vast majority of Americans who believe what they see on their TV’s but it will be no surprise at all to those who listen to the people that know what is actually going on: In the standings of GDP-to-education spending, Cuba is in 4th place while the United States is 55th.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_spending_on_education_(%25_of_GDP)

For my entire life Fidel Castro has been one of the premiere bogey-men of the American psyche. Compared to the dictators in numerous other countries that the US not only tolerates but supports, Fidel Castro is a boy scout— but Fidel committed the unforgivable and intolerable sin in that he not only punched the biggest bully in the world right on the nose, and he not only punched him right on his own frigging home turf — but he frigging got away with it!

Defying the Machine is bad enough. Usually, though, they can effectively discourage defiance by scaring people or intimidating them or murdering their families or whatever. Getting away with defiance, however, sets a precedent that makes the Machine cry out in horror and tear out its metaphorical hair.

(Burn out its literal diodes?)

Oh, how they hate revile ostracize despise detest demonize Fidel Castro! He is the worst dictator in the world! He is the devil incarnate!

During the Cuban Missile Crisis there was serious pressure on Kennedy to nuke Cuba.

For the record: Back in the 1950’s Cuba was a typical south-of-the-border operation in that it was ruled by a brutal monstrous American-backed dictator named Fulgencio Batista who tortured and killed political opposition but allowed the United Fruit Company (now Chiquita Brands International) free reign to loot Cuba for all it was worth.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cuban_Revolution

Amongst the numerous and documented crimes against humanity committed numerous times over many decades by the United Fruit Company (now Chiquita Brands International) was the Banana Massacre wherein the government of Columbia murdered more than 1,000 strikers in service to the United Fruit Company (now Chiquita Brands International) allegedly to prevent an armed invasion by the Americans who were promising to deal with a strike against the United Fruit Company (now Chiquita Brands International) if the Columbians didn’t.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Fruit_Company#Banana_massacre

Meanwhile, Havana was a world-class Mafia-owned den of gambling, prostitution, and booze for rich Americans out for ‘exotic’ life adventures.

Castro landed a small force in southeastern Cuba and was almost immediately wiped out by Batista’s air force. Then, the tattered remnants of his band attended their wounds before marching across Cuba gathering people as they went — and so despised was the American backed dictator that they rose to Castro’s banner and threw Batista, the Mafia, and the CIA, and all of their corrupt Cuban dupes out of Cuba (and executed quite a few of them that didn’t get away).

Then, after successfully punching the bully on the nose, Castro built a viable economic alternative that was in-your-face superior to ours on the social justice front if not the political or economic.

Political dissent is not allowed in Cuba. That truly sucks. However, in spite of decades-old economic sanctions imposed by the United States that are truly effective and devastating, the common Cuban people enjoy one of the highest standards of living in Latin America. A lot of this was due to a lot of aid from first the Soviet Union then Venezuela, but whatever. The fact remains that Cubans have many more doctors per capita than Americans do, they have a longer life expectancy than Americans do, and they have a lower infant mortality rate than Americans do. Cuba actually exports doctors all over the world while we export mostly weapons.

They are very poor, make no mistake; however, they are doing just fine anyway. That’s the point. You don’t need to be rich to live a rich life. I could make an argument that being rich precludes living a rich life, in fact. There are, in fact, extensive studies showing that the fair distribution of wealth is the leading factor in the health of a society, not how much wealth it possesses.

http://www.equalitytrust.org.uk/

Anyway, as a result of all this Fidel Castro had a whole bunch of the deadliest people in the whole world trying to kill him for several decades. His would-be killers included several Mafia families, Wall Street bankers, several presidents, the CIA, the Pentagon, and a bunch of very wealthy but now displaced Cubans who had fled to Florida with their ill-gotten gains and who now wielded wealth power and influence out of all proportion to their small numbers.

During the latter half of the 20th Century these people collectively killed millions and toppled numerous governments.

They failed to kill Castro, though; he lives on to this day. As far as I know he still smokes his cigars.

Almost all of the people who were trying to kill him are now themselves dead.

In spite of his police-state ways, I still think that overall the guy is a hero.

******************************************

Socialist Dictator

Castro’s buddy Hugo Chavez, the president of Venezuela, just died and he was another who punched the American bully on the nose and got away with it — maybe.

My first thought on hearing he died of cancer at age 58 was that the intelligence agencies have ways of inducing quick-killing cancers.

I just heard the vice-president of Venezuela just accused the Americans of poisoning Hugo Chavez.

I also presume all foreign politicians to be guilty until proven innocent and I’m thinking that this guy wants to rally his support to battle an external demon — but I wouldn’t be even the slightest bit surprised if there was fat on that calf.

Anyway, as usual my take on Chavez is likely to piss off both sides: Venezuela is now at a critical crossroads. Chavez was the Vision Guy; he saw where they could go and how they could get there. The problem with Vision Guys is that they usually suck at actual organizing and administration and they need a #2 man to actually turn the nuts and work the machinery — and for whatever reason, Chavez seems to have never had one. Perhaps he didn’t trust anyone enough to give them that much power or perhaps his ego was too bit to turn over that much power or perhaps he was so full of himself that he didn’t even realize that he was a shitty administrator — but after 16 years of rule there are still vast slums in Venezuela while corruption and crime have shot off the charts. Chavez has seriously reduced poverty and made truly impressive and incredible advances in educating and providing medical care for his citizens but the fact remains that due to crime Caracas is now one of the most dangerous cities in the world. Venezuela is about to encounter some serious economic issues too — and I don’t know if there is anyone there who can deal with all of this.

Chavez did make major strides in achieving his vision, though, and I think it is very important for Chavez’s vision to live on.

Hopefully someone will step up to the plate.

Wish the best for Venezuela.

******************************************

Bi Partisan Cooperation

I find it amazing and maddening that I have not heard a single person on either the Media Machine or the Alternative Media portray the infamous ‘sequestration’ for what I am pretty sure it is: To me it is blatantly obvious that the whole ‘sequestration’ charade was a bi-partisan scam to impose austerity by sneaking it in through the back door — and doing so in a manner wherein they could get away with it politically.

Since ‘austerity’ means Wall Street gets a lot more money while everyone else gets a lot less, it is easy to imagine them ordering Obama and all their other government lackeys to give them austerity. Obama publicly shed a few crocodile show-tears, but he made no serious moves to stop it. (ALWAYS with politicians: Ignore what they say and watch what they do.)

With the bogey ‘sequestration’ both the Dems and the Repubs can now blame each other for the mess and it’s an easy argument to make since for once both of them are right. The public has not a clue what’s really going on (as usual) and so while the left hates the social services cuts they comfort themselves with the cuts to the War Machine while the right does the opposite. Wall Street goes to town while everyone else gets left to clean up the mess as evidenced by the fact that Wall Street stocks skyrocketed in value and topped their all time record-high just a couple of days after the sequestration came into effect.

And I have found no one on the Media Machines who expresses anything close to this perspective even though I’m pretty sure it is the correct one.

Jeez.

******************************************

Drawing Lines

I am finding I must hold my temper when encountering Obama apologists. I went to the homeless shelter Saturday morning and ran into someone I didn’t know who tried to say we should support Obama because Obama supports women’s rights while the Republicans don’t.

I was still working on my first cup of coffee and I was in outrage-mode and the Obama thing has become something of a sore spot with me. I am really sick of people supporting a mass-murdering fascist war criminal because he supports the right social issues that Wall Street doesn’t care about. Imposing a fascist police state is cool as long as I can have an abortion or marry my same-sex partner.

We didn’t quite get to the name-calling phase and we later made friends but it was rather heated there for a few minutes.

At the Sunday GA to decide where to take the homeless shelter, it was almost like people were bargaining with people’s lives. Gee, if we can bargain the city for twenty beds, should they be available to twenty substance abusers or to seven families with children?

I understand that compromise is necessary to accomplish anything under the current political paradigm and I appreciate that there are people on our side who are capable of that because otherwise nothing would ever get done. I am glad there are people willing and able to compromise in order to get things done — but I am not one of them. I would like to be able to say I refuse to compromise with evil in any manner, but simply by using a cell phone or turning on a light or spending American money I am contributing to monstrous evil that defies the human imagination. We must draw lines, though, and I personally refuse to support a mass-murdering fascist war criminal no matter his stand on women’s rights and I think the world would be a much better place if more people adopted my attitude. Women’s rights are indeed a very important issue but women’s rights are not ultimately going to be served by a mass-murdering fascist war criminal. I am also not prepared to bargain whether substance abusers or families should get beds to sleep in. Everyone should have a bed and I won’t bargain that.

That’s why I let others talk to the policy makers. My job is to be so offensive that it encourages the policy makers to talk to the ‘reasonable’ people on our side rather than have me yelling at them through a bullhorn.

******************************************

The Wages of Good Deeds

Some professional full-disclosure here: Doers of good deed should be aware that no good deed ever goes unpunished.

For instance: As payment for services rendered to Occupy Olympia someone stole my tent.

This leads to some personal full-disclosure, this time concerning my priorities: On June 16th 2007 (the date of my release from six years in prison) one of my first purchases was of a stainless-steel coffee cup/ french press combo that has served me faithfully through extensive daily use for the entire 5-plus years since that memorable day.

This morning (Monday) I brought coffee to the homeless shelter at the Artesian Well at 5:30 AM and someone stole my coffee cup.

It was a tough blow, but I’ll get over it. (Shock, denial, grief, acceptance, etc.) While it was kind of like losing an old friend — at the end of the day I can always just buy another coffee cup.

On the other hand, I pity someone who has the karma of stealing from someone like me.

It’s time to get to work…

1) FYI Section:

1A) Homeless War Update: Grassroots Homeless Shelter Torn Down by State Police

Seven people were arrested Tuesday evening when they refused to leave the homeless shelter. There are videos online and I have others that soon will be.

It was effective, fun, inspiring, and kicked ass. Alex Daye bottom-lined this action. He didn’t sleep all weekend, he spent a bunch of his own money on pizzas and outhouses, and he was one of the arrestees.

Alex’ wife Audrey gave powerful testimony to the Olympia City Council only an hour after Alex’s arrest.

Peter Boemer, Rod Tharpe, and some street kids (Shane, Tim, and I forget the names of the other two and I don’t have time to find them right now — I’ll get them for next week) were the other arrestees.

We made the front page on the Olympian for three days and our action was reported on Seattle NPR station KUOW Wednesday morning, so we succeeded in shoving this issue into everyone’s face once again.

Go here to see pictures of the whole action:

5) Stopping Honduran Coup Violence against LGBT People and Labor
Friday March 8th at 6 PM @ Media Island, 816 Adams St SE

The infamous Honduran Coup is also oppressing LGBT people and labor. Come learn how to fight against this.

This from the Alliance for Global Justice:

Three years after the Honduras coup, Indigenous, LGBTQ, Teachers, Labor and Farmers are subjected to continual violence. The Resistance Front calls for greater international solidarity to stop the violence.

On June 28, 2009, democratically elected Honduran President Manuel Zelaya was rousted from his bed by the military and flown into exile. Under the coup government, and the illegitimate government of Porfirio Lobo, “selected in sham elections,” violence and repression against the people of Honduras has continued to grow.

• More than 55 small farmers, members of cooperatives farming land they are entitled to under the country’s land reform laws, have been murdered by government forces and “security guards” of large landowners.

• Thirty LGBTQ activists have been murdered, many of them tortured and mutilated first.

• African-descended Garifuna people on Honduras’ Caribbean Coast are being violently evicted to make way for tourism projects.

• In May, four indigenous Miskito people, including two pregnant women, a 14-year old boy and a 21-year old youth were wrongfully slaughtered when a US helicopter with DEA agents aboard, negligently fired at Miskito families in a community boat. Four other indigenous family members of the boat were badly wounded. Six of the sixteen persons on the boat were children.

The US government trains and funds the Honduran military and corrupt police. It was the primary force behind recognizing the coup government and returning Honduras to membership in the Organization of American States.

Join Chuck Kaufman who has traveled to Honduras frequently since the coup to learn about the violence against marginalized communities there, how they are fighting for their economic and civil rights, and what you can do to help.

Chuck Kaufman is National Co-Coordinator of the Alliance for Global Justice with 25 years of Latin America solidarity work and anti-war, anti-US militarism work in the US. He has led three delegations to Honduras since the coup.

12) Scott Yoos Hearing
Wednesday March 13th at 9 AM @ Thurston County Courthouse, 2000 Lakeridge Dr. SW

Scott Yoos was beat up by the cops and then accused of assaulting them. (The OPD seems especially fond of doing this to people. I now personally know four people they have done this to — and two of them were teenage girls that weighed less than 100 lbs.)

The mere idea of Scott ever assaulting anyone much less a cop is absurd beyond description — but they have two cops who are saying he did so he is likely to be convicted and every time his name is run for the rest of his life he’ll come up as a cop-assaulter.

There will be a rally in front of the courthouse, and if you want to attend the actual hearing keep in mind that you’ll be going through a metal detector to get there.

This from Scott:

…of my NEXT, rapidly-impending (& bound to be thrill-packed & quite consequential!)
pre-Trial court HEARING, (now scheduled to occur next WEDNESDAY morning, 3/13, @ 9am), IN YOUR NEXT “Oly. Activism Update”!

…THANKS MUCHLY, Bro!

*(please re: to the March-issue of Works In Progress, pg. 2, for further DETAILS

Keep it Lit!
Scott Yoos
