When Jesus Left Hollywood

It’s a shame to think that in the twenty first century in a country as progressive as the United States we still have to hear the war cry of racism at every turn. In this particular instance regarding the Oscars who, for the first time in whatever the fuck amount of years haven’t shown enough recognition to people “of color,” whatever that might mean.

In this country racism is alive and well, but not as a layman might expect: rather as business of sorts. A way to get people to think certain ways and do certain things – not always positive – with intended results. I realize now I should have said layperson, but frankly I don’t give a shit. Hate mongers of every stripe complain incessantly about all the repression and underrepresentation they feel; for them this is a land of fear, violence and oppression, unlike like Mexico, the Middle East and 99.9% of Africa to rattle off a few enlightened counterparts. People of all colors live in the U.S. as second class citizens to be beaten down, abused and oppressed.

To slump down to the tired and stupid argument, I would posit that they should go back to their own country. To take the higher road I would say (sorry ladies) stop being a bitch in this, your own country. We’re most of us immigrants here or of immigrant stock. The Irish, Jews, Germans, Catholics, Greeks, Portuguese, Lebanese, Inuit, Uzbekistani, Hondurans, Mannish, et al were all discriminated against at one time or another by those that came before them. You talk of slavery, I talk of the enslavement of the Jews (by Africans; Egyptians to be precise). That’s not to mention the Roman persecution of the Germanics, the Spanish persecution of alleged heretics, Hutu genocide of the Tutsi, and nameless, countless other inhumanities of man against man (again, sorry ladies).

We live in a world of humans and therefore as hopelessly flawed as humans. We can fight or die, sit silent or speak out. The problem with speaking out is that when too many idiots do it all at once then the air gets a little thick with bullshit. As much as the lack of colored folks nominated for Oscars keeps me up at night I’m glad that two first timers, Marcus Mariota and Cardale Jones (Mariota of U of Oregon being the first Polynesian to win the Heisman , and Jones of Ohio State being a previously at risk youth and third string quarterback to make history) were the first two “colored” quarterbacks to be in the first national college football championship. Sadly I didn’t consider how underrepresented Euro-American men were in that fantastic game. That’s college ball. To take a totally different angle, I don’t even need to mention our president of color who won not one but two elections by popular vote.

The more we sit back, pen and paper in hand and try to demarcate just what race does what and when, we as Americans are going to be fucked as a society. To quote De La Soul:

“See them Cubans don’t care what y’all niggaz do, Columbians ain’t never ran with your crew, Why you acting all spicy and sheisty, the only Italians you knew was icees”

The business of racism is the business of separation. Identity based on the anxiety of losing the nebulous core of the self. People eat, drink, shit, breathe and fuck regardless of where they came from. I would hope this wouldn’t be an issue anymore. Sure there are regrets and skeletons in the closet, but we all have them. If we were all to beat ourselves to death over the shitty things we’ve done, how would we grow as people? How could we grow as a society?

Racism and all other bigotry is always going to be a one way street in that it’s by its very nature polarizing. There is no room for a gray area (note the aforementioned color and the color of the human brain) so there will never be peace. I don’t call for any sort of bullshit, I would just posit the question: isn’t there enough real world shit to deal with – food, cancer, bills, age, insurance, relationships, to name a few – that worrying about who is underrepresented at the Oscars shouldn’t be an issue?

I’m sure the Academy is flawed and that perhaps life terms is a bit too long to cycle through enough diversity. I’m sure Cheryl Boone Isaacs hates black people. I’m sure that the Academy seeks to award talent, not just showing up (or sending out screeners late). But what do I know… I’ll leave off with this: with the possible exception of the Somali guy that played the pirate and lost all his money, almost all of those nominees are millionaires, or at least richer than you. Regardless of color.  And they always will be.

It’s Official: Black Triangle Sightings in US are NSA Surveillance Drone Blimps

Commonly known as BBD (Big Black Deltas), BBT (Big Black Triangles), or Stealth Blimps, have been finally confirmed by a high ranking official (anonymous) that these sightings are a part of a joint “Unacknowledged Special Access government Program (USAP) by the NSA/NRO/CIA/FBI. The whistle-blower voices concern over the fact that these mammoth pilotless drones are overflying almost all moderate cities in the United States and they are collecting many formats of communication, from radio bands, to satellite phones and even certain WiFi connections. This signals intelligence (SIGINTS) is piped into the NSA computer system voice recognition keyword search program.

This joint venture was launched quickly after 9-11. Our source confirmed that these aircraft have been in experimental and functional modes since the late 1980s. These stealth blimps have an array of collection devices on board. They are then relayed to satellite and then back down to various NSA sites where they are finally deciphered and in some cases listened to by humans. There is growing dessent about the program from within, as it currently sidesteps the United States Constitution. If it wasn’t billed under USAP status, “it would not be in existence, period.”

Our source airs concerns about “close calls” where large populations witnessed the ships either having technical problems and resetting, or close to government facilities where they land and are mantained. Our source tells us “it is just a matter of time before one falls out of the sky due to malfunction or other reasons.” The program does have a rapid response team but if it happens in a largely populated area it, “won’t matter.”

The source stressed that this program is not black, USAPs virtually, “don’t exist.” There is no paper trail to the program, at all. It is said that when President Obama was brought into the White House he was reluctant to continue the program but none the less, did continue it. We need to expose the lies, dirty tricks and unconstitutional route the government has gone. You heard it here first on LanguageAbuse.

Peaceful Protests Result of Brainwashed Hippies?

Since the mid to late 1960′s we have seen a push for “peaceful protests” by all means. Almost Everyone has jumped on the bandwagon since MLK was semi-successful gaining some of his goals further giving African Americans, their inherently due rights. What this short article wishes to completely not focus on is race, or any political issues for that matter. It will look at class and tactics classes may use to further their own interests.

What I have often wondered, and am sure I am not the only person who has posited this same idea is; did this push for peaceful movements arise because it really works, or was it just a way the bourgeoisie could protect their interests and limit liabilities in times of upheaval and rebellion. The controlling class in the USA knows from time to time there will be uprisings from unhappy workers not making enough to carve out a decent living.

If these protesters are molded and brainwashed into always having peaceful protests during these hard times, the bourgeoisie will inevitably have less costs incurred from busted buildings, broken windows, looted shops. Furthermore their “protectors,” the police, are less apt to be harmed. Lastly if the protesters are violent, and managed to get past these protectors, or convince the protectors to change sides, they would be violently held accountable. These are three outcomes that were directly confronted in the tumultuous 1960′s and the ruling class most likely brainstormed about back then.

They knew like minded groups that would be against them would be leftist groups such as what we are seeing with the current Occupy movement, which has maintained peace. These groups would generally demand some level of equality for the masses. The opposite argument is that the 1% that controls the majority of the worlds wealth see themselves as the so-called “economic engine” which drives everyone’s minimum wages up.  Reagan called this “trickle down economics,” I would prefer to call it, “conglomerate and control” economics.

Why “conglomerate and control” you may ask. Here is a simple example in which I think anyone can easily understand, and that I have personally seen in my lifetime. When I was a little boy, the shopping complex down the street had a small local grocery store, a shoe repair store, an independent video rental store, a small pet store, and nail solon. What resides there now? A 99cents Only store and a liquor store. All these shops started disappearing in the early 90s when box stores started to dominate. So now instead of many independent stores having owners making middle class incomes, we have conglomerated all these stores into one big local Walmart where people get paid minimum wage. Is this trickle down method working? I don’t think so, not by a long shot.

People want back a simpler America where they can work their way up a ladder and make a decent living for themselves. No more and no less. Has the ruling class, the bourgeoisie brainwashed us into being submissive slaves who do peaceful sit-ins? I can’t answer that. Will violence once again erupt into our society after people become more and more despondent? I can’t answer that either. Are peaceful protests versus violent uprisings more effective? These are all questions left open for debate. Perhaps a violent uprising in The United States of America is closer than we realize.
