I would love to run a prison privately: bread and water, and no food for those who cause trouble .. all day in chains .. I would charge like 3000 a year per prisoner. Not the whopping like million a year they have now. Motherfuckas who act up get to not eat for 4 days.

Our Economy Was a Scam and Now We're Dead Broke

By Joe Bageant, JoeBageant.com. Posted October 27, 2009.

America is broke. And the easy credit, phantom "growth" economy has been exposed for what it was: a credit scam.

As I write this, Massey Energy is poised to unleash even greater terror upon us by blasting Coal River Mountain to ashes, while our lives hover below in the balance.

When Barack Obama took office it seemed to some of us that his first job was to get the national silverware out of the pawn shop. Or at least maintain the world's confidence that it was possible for us to get out of debt. America is dead broke, the easy credit, phantom "growth" economy has been exposed for what it was. A credit scam. Even Hillary Clinton and Obama's best efforts have not coaxed much more dough out of foreign friends. But at least we again have a few friends abroad.

So now we must jackleg ourselves back into something resembling a productive activity. No matter how you cut it, things will not be as much fun as shopping and speculative "investing" were.

The fiesta is over, the economy as we knew it is dead.

The national money shamans have danced around the carcass of our dead horse economy, chanted the recovery chant and burned fiat currency like Indian sage, enshrouding the carcass in the sacred smoke of burning cash. And indeed, they have managed to prop up the carcass to appear life-like from a distance, if you squint through the smoke just right. But it still stinks here from the inside. Clearly at some point we must find a new horse to ride, and sure as god made little green apples one is broaching the horizon. And it looks exactly like the old horse.

Then too, what else did we expect? His economic team of free market billionaires and financial hotwires includes most of those who helped Bill Clinton sell the theory that Americans didn't need jobs. Actual labor, if you will remember, was for Asian sweatshops and Latin maquiladoras. We, as a nation one third of whose population is functionally illiterate, were going to transmute ourselves into an information and transactional economy. Ain't gonna sweat no mo' no mo' -- just drink wine and sing about Jesus all day.

Along with these economic hotwires came literally hundreds of K Street and Democratic lobbyists. Supposedly, every president is forced to hire these guys because no one else seems to have the connections or knows how to get a bill through Congress. Consequently, the current regime's definition of a recovery is more of the same as ever. A return of the mortgage market and credit to its former level -- the level that blew us out of the water in the first place. Ah, but we're gonna manage it better this time. There is no one-trick pony on earth equal to capitalism.

Somewhere in the smoking wreckage lie the solutions. The solutions we aren't allowed to discuss: adoption of a Wall Street securities speculation tax; repeal of the Taft-Hartley anti-union laws; ending corporate personhood; cutting the bloated vampire bleeding the economy, the military budget; full single payer health care insurance, not some "public option" that is neither fish nor fowl; taxation instead of credits for carbon pollution; reversal of inflammatory U.S. policy in the Middle East (as in, get the hell out, begin kicking the oil addiction and quit backing the spoiled murderous brat that is Israel.

Meanwhile we may all feel free to row ourselves to hell in the same hand basket. Except of course the elites, the top five percent or so among us. But 95 percent is close enough to be called democratic, so what the hell. The trivialized media, having internalized the system's values, will continue to act as rowing captain calling out the strokes. News gathering in America is its own special hell, and reduces its practitioners to banality and elite sycophancy. But Big Money calls the shots.

With luck we will see at least some reverse of the Bush regime's assault on habeas corpus, due process, privacy. Changing such laws doesn't much affect that one percent whose income is equal to the combined bottom 50 percent of Americans.

Beyond that, the big money is constitutionally protected. Our Constitution is first and foremost a property document protecting their money. In actual practice, our constitutional civil liberties, inspiring as they are in concept to people around the world, are mainly side action to make the institutionalization of the owning class more palatable. You can argue that may not have been the intent of the slave owning, rent collecting, upper class founding fathers. But you would be full of shit. We can keep on pretending to be independent, free to keep on living in those houses on which we still owe $300,000. But they own and control the money that comes through our hands. And they plan to keep on owning it and charging us to use it.

PR for the GOP? Yes. Platform for right-wing hatemongers? Definitely. But a news organization? Definitely not.

On the positive side, there has probably been no more fertile opportunity to improve U.S. international relations since post World War II. Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld and Bolton were about as endearing as pederasts at a baby shower. And now that we have shot up half the planet, certainly there is no more globally attractive person to patch up the bullet holes than Barack Obama (yes, I know Bill Clinton's feelings are hurt by that). Awarding him the Nobel Peace Prize (again Bill Clinton's feeling are sorely wounded) was an invitation to rejoin the human race.

Of course, there are a significant number of Americans still who could not give a rat's ass about world opinion of the good ole USA. Nearly every damned one of my neighbors back in Virginia, in fact.

The sharks are still running the only game in town and they have never had it better. To be sure, with the economic collapse some of the financial lords won't pile quite up as many millions this year. Others will however have a record year. All are still squatting in the tall cotton.

Their grandfathers who so hated FDR's reforms must be chugging cognac in hell celebrating today's America. America's unions have been neutered and taught to beg. At long last we have established a permanent underclass and deindustrialized the country in favor of low wage service industries here and dirt cheap labor from abroad. We've managed to harden the education and income gap into something an American oligarch can take pride in. Hell, my bank card is issued by Prescott Bush's Union Bank and my most recent mortgage was held by J. P. Morgan's creation. My electricity is generated by Rockefeller's coal and energy holdings and my Exxon gasoline credit card is issued by a successor to Standard oil. The breakfast I eat comes from Archer Daniels Midland. So did my dog's breakfast. We are the very products and property of these people and their institutions.

With peak oil, population pressure, vanishing world resources and global warming, we can never again be what we once were -- a civilization occupying a relative material paradise through a danse macabre of planetarily unsustainable growth. But no presidential candidate is going to run on the promise that "If we do everything just right, pull in our belts and sacrifice, we can at best be a second world nation in fifty years, providing we don't mind the lack of oxygen and a few cancers here and there." Better to hawk the myth of profitable pollution through carbon credits. Which Obama is doing.

We burn the grain supplies of starving nations in our vehicles. Skilled American construction workers now unemployed drive their big trucks into town and knock at my door asking to rake my leaves for ten bucks. There is nothing ironic in this to their minds. "Middle class" people making $150,000 a year will get a new tax break (as if we were all earning 150K). Energy prices are predicted to stabilize because we intend to burn the state of West Virginia in our power plants. The corpses of our young people are still being unloaded from cargo planes at Dover Delaware, but from two fronts now. Mortgage foreclosures are expected to double before they slacken. I cannot imagine debtors not getting at least temporary relief, if not decent jobs or affordable health care. Surely we will see more "change."

But never under any conditions will we be allowed to touch the real money, or get anywhere near it, much less redistribute it. Because, as a bookie friend once told me, "You got your common man living on hope, lottery tickets, or the dogs or the ponies, and you got operators. People who can see the whole game in play. They set the rules. Because they hold the money. That ain't never gonna change."

On the other hand national opinion changes almost hourly. But if the starting gate bell rang right now for the next presidential race, I'd have to put ten bucks on Obama to place. We cannot assume the Republican party will remain stupid. Assumptions don't work at all.

Remember what happened when we assumed the Democrats were capable of courage and leadership?

Single Payer Comes to Vote – Action Needed!

If you’re like me, you are currently hoping that Democratic leadership will take the thousand-plus page health care bills in the House and Senate, wad them up with all the loopholes, mandates, giveaways, and gaps, and throw them in the trash can. Thanks to Rep. Weiner [D-NY], and Senator Sanders [I-VT], Congress has the opportunity to do just that.

Rep. Weiner is bringing single-payer to the House floor for a vote in an amendment to HR 3200. If the Weiner single-payer amendment is passed, it would gut all of HR 3200 and replace it with legislation that is based on the single-payer model in HR 676. Senator Sanders is doing the same in the Senate with his single-payer bill, S 703.

The beauty of these amendments is that they build on what works in our health care system: Medicare.

Despite the right wing attacks and accusations that it is going bankrupt, the Medicare system has guaranteed universal, equitable access to care for those over 65 and with disabilities. Since its enactment, life expectancy has increased and poverty in the elderly has been cut by 2/3. While it needs improvements, it is certainly not beyond repair, and truly does serve as a uniquely American example of how to provide health care for all.

The question remains, why can’t Congress just vote on HR 676 without any of this amendment business?

Welcome to the nuances of legislative politics. Even with 87 cosponsors, HR 676 was not guaranteed a vote from Democratic leadership in the House. They just wouldn’t do it. Why they wouldn’t do it is open to speculation. It could have been a political calculation, or perhaps they are bought off by the insurance industry, or they just didn’t think they could get the votes for it. Despite the single-payer movement’s demands, there was no vote in sight for HR 676 as of July 29th, 2009.

Just before breaking for the infamous August recess, single-payer developments started to unfold within the corridors of power.

On July 30th, the same day that over one thousand single-payer activists rallied in the nation’s capitol to celebrate the 44th anniversary of Medicare’s enactment, Rep. Weiner introduced an amendment to eliminate Medicare completely. It was unanimously voted down. He was thrilled to find that in his committee Republicans and Democrats alike support Medicare. The following day, Rep. Weiner introduced another amendment which was the exact language of HR 676, Improved and Expanded Medicare for All. If this amendment passed, there would be no more HR 3200, just universal, comprehensive, single-payer health care as the legislation coming from his committee.

Much to the surprise of Rep. Weiner and all those watching, Chairman Waxman didn’t allow the vote to happen in the committee. Instead, he stated that he and Speaker Pelosi had agreed that if Rep. Weiner withdrew his amendment at the time, they would allow it to come to the floor of the House for full debate and vote.

That’s right folks. Single-payer will come to the House floor for the first time in our nation’s history for a vote and thanks to the leadership of Senator Sanders, we will see a vote on single-payer in the Senate too.

What can you do to support these developments?

Follow Michael Moore’s advice and support the Weiner and Sanders amendments. Call your Congress person today. Healthcare-NOW! has a new click-to-call tool that never made calling Congress so easy – tools.advomatic.com/35/hc-n/.

They need to hear from you. We cannot be silent on the reform that this country so desperately needs.

Because we have to use all of the tools available in the fight against injustice, the time for nonviolent civil disobedience is upon us. Healthcare-NOW! and allied groups recently launched the Mobilization for Health Care for All. In recent weeks, nearly 100 people have put their bodies on the line and been arrested demanding Medicare for All and the end of profiteering insurance companies. People are standing up to our corporate controlled health care that is preventing a fair hearing in Congress and in the media by sitting in at insurance companies across the nation.

17 cities are ready to participate in actions in the next week to demand that the insurance industry take every lobbying dollar they're spending to corrupt our democracy and use it to pay for the care they're denying. Everyone can take part in this campaign by risking arrest or supporting the actions in a legal rally. Together we can demand a health care system that works for patients, not profits – Medicare for All.

Sign up to sit in at www.mobilizeforhealthcare.org.

Katie Robbins is Assistant National Coordinator of Healthcare-NOW! and a firm believer that health care is a human right that must be delivered to all people without financial barriers. Motivated by the great injustice in the US health care system, she was arrested on May 5th in the Senate Finance Committee for telling Senator Baucus to stop the political theater and put single-payer on the table.

News tonight says that a single payer option is in the bill, but individual states can "opt-out". How can that be fair and right? I'm in Texas, and that's one state that will most likely opt out and as much as I like living here, I'll have to move!!! Keep calling folks, every day. Reply

Hi Everyone - I did my part and contacted my local Oklahoma congressman about Healthcare-Now support and recieved the following response via e-mail. Let's just say I did not like the response, but am not likely as well educated as I could be to respond. All I Know is that I would like healthcare for all our great people. Let me know your thoughts. Thanks Keith

Dear Mr XYZ:



Thank you for contacting me with your thoughts on health care reform. As your voice in Washington, I appreciate being made aware of your thoughts and concerns.



I am dedicated to providing quality health care for my fellow Oklahomans and all Americans and desire to see everyone receive the best possible health care with the most choices. Like you, I agree there is a health care crisis that needs to be addressed. However, a greater crisis is having a Washington bureaucrat get between you and your doctor, making decisions for you or denying you the medical care you need. Therefore, I am committed to a balanced, common sense approach to health care that provides assistance to those who truly need it and keeps healthcare patient-centered rather than government-centered.



I believe the Federal government has no place in our personal health care decisions, choices, and treatments. Even with our increasing health care costs and concern for the uninsured, we still have the best health care system in the world, and I do not want to jeopardize the quality of care that already exists in our country. Socialized, government-run health care, touted by many as the only solution, is not the answer. This is made evident by the state of health care in other nations that use this model, like Canada or Great Britain.



There are many examples that show the failures of this type of system. Of the numerous articles, let me provide examples of a few. The Wall Street Journal featured a story earlier this year of a Canadian citizen, Bill Murray, who waited in pain for more than a year to see a specialist for his arthritic hip. The specialist recommended a state-of-the-art procedure, but government bureaucrats determined that Mr. Murray, who was 57, was "too old." In the end, he was also denied the opportunity to pay for the procedure himself. The Mayo Clinic's website features the story of Shona Holmes whose Canadian family doctor discovered a tumor in her brain. Ms. Holmes knew she could not wait the six months it would take for her to get an appointment with a specialist. Instead, she was able to call the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota and got an appointment the same day. The British newspaper, The Press, reported that a British citizen, Ian Dobbin, was informed by the British National Health Service that since it would not pay for his life-saving cancer treatment, he needed to pay ?25,000 (over $40,000) to obtain the treatment in order to survive. He was quoted in the article saying, "I've been paying my national insurance all my life and when it comes to the point that I need it to keep me alive, they are not prepared to help."



These stories and many others illustrate some of the problems that can arise when the government gets involved in health care. Furthermore, statistics show that the United States already has a superior and more effective health system. According to recent publications, the mortality rate in Canada is 25% higher for breast cancer, 18% higher for prostate cancer, and 13% higher for colorectal cancer than in the U.S. Additionally, studies show that only 5% of Americans wait more than 4 months for surgery, compared with 23% of Australians, 26% of New Zealanders, 27% of Canadians, and 36% of British citizens. In fact, nearly 1.8 million people in Great Britain are waiting for hospital or outpatient treatments at any given time. Even more telling, a Canadian doctor now practicing in the United States reported in the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons that the average wait time to see a specialist in Canada is 17 weeks. If we give the Federal government more control over health care, I am very concerned that Oklahomans and all Americans will quickly feel the effects of the rationing of health care.



Supporters of a "public plan" or government-run health insurance option claim that a public plan will bring competition to the health insurance market and lower prices. However, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) has made it clear that introducing a government-run health plan into the market would have minimal impact on cost reduction. In fact, CBO Director Doug Elmendorf testified to the Senate Budget Committee that "in the legislation that has been reported [they] do not see the sort of fundamental changes that would be necessary to reduce the trajectory of federal health spending by a significant amount. And on the contrary, the legislation significantly expands the federal responsibility for health care costs." I am concerned that a "public plan" option will run private insurance out of business leaving us, as consumers, without choices and options. As an American citizen, I do not want bureaucrats in Washington, D.C. deciding which doctors I am allowed to see or which treatments are available to me.



President Obama has promised the American people on numerous occasions that if you like your current health insurance, you can keep it. However, CBO estimates and has testified that 15 million Americans will lose the health care coverage currently offered by their employer if the Kennedy/Dodd bill were to become law. Again, we see that this comprehensive health care proposal is leading us down a path that takes choice away from individuals.



As an alternative, I am a cosponsor of S. 1099, the Patients' Choice Act. This bill strengthens relationships between patients and physicians by using choice and competition rather than rationing and restrictions to contain costs while ensuring that affordable health care is available for all Americans without interference from the Federal government. While promoting healthier lifestyles and disease prevention through incentives for States, S. 1099 also provides a refundable tax credit of $2,300 per individual or $5,700 per family for the purchase of health insurance. To enable individuals to choose a health insurance plan that best meets their needs, the bill creates State Health Insurance Exchanges allowing Americans to compare different health plans and makes Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) more accessible and easy to use.



Thank you again for contacting me. Although we may disagree on the need for a government-run health insurance plan, I hope that we can find common ground in others areas of health care reform. As the healthcare debate further develops and more proposals are introduced, I will work to develop and enact legislation that ensures affordable health care is available to all in a fiscally responsible manner with the most choices available.

Activism: acting against something you know is wrong. The health insurers are now whining about "only" 4%-6% profits per year...simple math says that if something goes up 7% a year, that amount DOUBLES every ten years...and that is why the insurance premiums keep going up. Have you ever gotten a raise as much as that in a year? Reply

I just called my two senators and my house rep in Northern Michigan and talked with a real live person each time! Called at 9 AM. I gave them my name and zip code and asked for their names. All were very polite and assured me they would pass my support on. One even said 'thank you, your call does make a difference.' Nice. Thank you for making this so user-friendly! Reply

U.S. political spender: report

http://www.reuters.com/article/politicsNews/idUSTRE59N0K420091024

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg has spent more of his own money in pursuit of public office than any other individual in U.S. history, spending $85 million as of Friday on his latest reelection campaign, the New York Times reported on Saturday.

Citing newly released campaign records, the Times said Bloomberg was on pace to spend between $110 and $140 million before the November 3 mayoral election. That means the self-made billionaire will have spent more than $250 million in his three bids for mayor of America's most fabled city.

In contrast, New Jersey Governor and former Goldman Sachs chairman Jon Corzine spent about $130 million in two races for governor and one for the U.S. Senate, the Times reported.

And publisher Steve Forces poured $114 million into two bids for president, it said.

Bloomberg's wealth, much of it from the Bloomberg LP media and information empire, is estimated at $16 billion. He has used it to establish what the Times called an "insurmountable financial dominance" in the race.

His opponent, William C Thompson, a Democrat, has spent just $6 million in the race. A Thompson campaign spokeswoman on Friday told the Times the mayor's spending was "obscene."

The bulk of Bloomberg's spending has gone into television, radio and Web advertising, it said.

But some of the money has trickled down to recession-hit small businesses, including Goodfellas Brick Over Pizza on Staten Island and in the Bronx. The Bloomberg campaign has so far forked over $8,892 for pizza at Goodfellas alone.

Thomson Reuters competes globally with Bloomberg in the delivery of multimedia news, data and enhanced information.

Family Says 911 Tape Caught Cops Planning Cover-Up After Shooting
PHOENIX (CN) - A homeowner says a Phoenix police officer shot him six times in the back during a 911 home-invasion call, and the 911 tape recorded the officer's partner saying, "That's all right. Don't worry about it. I got your back. ... We clear?" The family says the officers were not aware that the 911 call was still recording as they spoke about covering up the shooting.
In their complaint in Maricopa County Court, Anthony and Lesley Arambula say an armed intruder "crashed through the front window" of their home on Sept. 17, 2008 and ran into one of their son's bedrooms.
Anthony, worried about his son who was still in his bedroom, says he "held the intruder calmly at gunpoint" and called 911.
Phoenix Police officers already in the neighborhood heard the crash of the Arambulas' window. When they approached the house, Lesley says, she told Sgt. Sean Coutts that her husband was inside holding the intruder at gunpoint. Lesley says Coutts failed to pass on that information to the two other officers.
Inside the house, the Arambulas say, Officer Brian Lilly shot Anthony six times in the back while he was still on the phone with the 911 operator - twice when he was on the ground.
The officers ran into the bedroom after Anthony told them, "You just killed ... you just killed the homeowner. The bad guy is in there."
The complaint states that Officer Lilly "admitted that it was only after Tony was laying, bullet-ridden, on the ground that he assessed the situation. The 911 tape continued to record what happened even after Officer Lilly unloaded his weapon into Tony, including Officer Lilly's post-shooting, one-word 'assessment': 'Fuck.'
"Tony believed he was going to die; the 911 tape records his plaintive goodbye to his family: '... I love you ... I love you.' Then Tony made what he believed was a dying request to the officers; he did not want his young family to see him shot and bloodied. Officers callously ignored his request and painfully dragged Tony by his injured leg, through the home and out to his backyard patio, where they left him bloodied and shot right in front of Lesley, Matthew and Zachary."
The Arambulas say the officers later dragged Anthony onto gravel, then put him on top of the hot hood of a squad car, and "drove the squad car down the street with Tony lying on top, writhing in pain."
According to the complaint, Lilly can be heard on the 911 tape telling Coutts, "We fucked up."
Lilly says on the tape that he did not know where Anthony's gun was when he shot him and that he "opened fire because he heard loud noises and saw someone who looked like he might be the 'Hispanic' male they were pursuing" before getting to the Arambulas' house, according to the complaint.
The complaint states: "Sgt. Coutts knew that officers has just shot up and likely killed an innocent homeowner and the husband of Lesley, with whom he had spoken before entering the home, instead of the armed intruder. Sgt. Coutts was quick to commence the cover-up of their terrible mistake. Sgt. Coutts asked Office Lilly where Tony's gun was at the time Officer Lilly had opened fire on Tony. Officer Lilly admitted that he did not know where Tony's gun was: 'I don't know. I heard screaming and I fired.'"
Lilly later told a police internal affairs investigator that Anthony had pointed his gun in his direction, "in the 'ready' position," the complaint states. But Anthony Arambula says he was facing away from the officers, who could not have even seen his gun.
The complaint continues: "Still not knowing that he is being recorded n the 911 tape, Sgt. Coutts interrupted Officer Lilly's admission and apology with his assurance that the cover-up would commence: 'That's all right. Don't worry about it. I got your back. ... We clear?'"
After the shooting, the Arambulas say, the Phoenix Police Department treated them "like suspects in a drug bust," denying Lesley, Michael and Zachary information about Anthony's condition and denying friends and family members access to him at the hospital.
Anthony Arambula survived, but continues to suffer pain, which he expects will last for the rest of his life.
The City of Phoenix and Officer Dzenan Ahmetovic also are named as defendants.
The Arambulas seek punitive damages for gross negligence, civil rights violations, failure to supervise, excessive force, deliberate indifference to medical needs, false arrest, and emotional distress. They are represented by Michael Manning with Stinson Morrison Hecker.
