Ronald Wilson Reagan's "Welfare Cadillacs" are all over the place.  Yup.   I wish I was created as a poor black woman from low-grade segregated schools so I could be living that good life.   Reagan was a Democrat until after he fucked over his union brothers and sisters by selling their future earnings and rights out to Debbie Wasserman Shultz's pappy, Lew (Music Corporation of America -- the MCA).   Then he was the corrupt asshole who could only be a Republican, so ever the actor, did his job for corruption.  Now, the Democrats are Republicans whose only selling point is, "we're not Republicans."   So, get back to work, charging their batteries.

The more money I make, the more the gov't takes, the cost of living goes up, the gov't takes more.....I might be confused here, but I'm thinking that the gov't wants me to quit my job and live off the state, because as a hard working individual, I find myself with less than those that sponge off of welfare....

Perhaps it's different where you're from but, unless you're talking about those who benefit the most from the corporate-welfare system, I've never met anyone collecting food stamps or a monthly check who I would consider "living the good life". 

 

Arizona homie......

 

check out the state benefits.....If I quit my job and become a meth head, the state pays for everything for me, from food to shelter, to even having a kid, but if I work, well most of my money goes to taxes and a 5$ loaf of bread.....but that's Sedona for ya.....

 

 

I also believe that the town I live in is ran by 30 private individuals that dump their money into laws and policy in order to fatten their pockets......Of course, this isn't a conspiracy, since I cater their monthly dinner, I know this to be fact......But the local newspaper sure thinks it's a conspiracy since they always ban my posts and have now banned me permanently from commenting on their fairy tale fake media stories......

 

And since we are onto conspiracies, how bout finding a story about Sedona, AZ where someone was murdered......there aren't any, because they cover that shit up.....they never report it, but I know of a story of one of the elite here murdered someone, and it was all swept under the rug.....There was just a shooting here about 2 weeks ago, and the only reason I know that, is because I drove past at the time it was happening.....Sedona IS one big conspiracy, and this is the most socialist fucked place I've ever lived, and I've lived alot of places......If you support Sedona, You support modern day slavery...

 

ok, I went on a rant.....carry on.....

Few seem to notice, but providing the basics in the form of welfare is perhaps the best anti-crime program ever instituted.  That meth-head with kids, in any particular lucid moment, might see robbing you to feed the kids, or his habits (in this dumbed down and tilted playing field of a country) as the most sensible best option.   His karma could just as easily run over your dogma.

Shit happens. If it makes you feel better, or more empowered to 'find' a conspiracy, then, right on!
To me, it's mental masturbation. Pay attention to what your local city counsel is doing instead of unravelling the Universe!
Here's one to jack your head up, the Waste Treatment Facility is ACTUALLY a gene collector! They're gonna clone your shit and create another you!

Upside is, you can share your alimony payments!

The Holocaust happened! I've been to Auschwitz, Dachau AND Treblinka, there is no denying it! You walk INTO the place and your spirit cries! It HAPPENED!
I was 4 when the moon landing happened, saw it in TV (parents MADE me watch) the tech wasnt there to fake it. IT HAPPENED!

YOUR BIRTH? Did it happen, do you remember? Is it a lie?

Come on guys, there are a LOT more pressing issues we should deal with TODAY, than to wonder if Lincoln sucked dick or not.

Before anyone slams me for being offensive, IDGAF.
I grew up in the age BEFORE internet, when you had a beef with the Powers, you actually had to DO something about it! Instead of squatting on Facebook and bitching about it.

A

Freedoms just another word for nothin' left to lose, nothin' don't mean nothin' if it ain't free.
No no
And feeling good was easy, Lord, when he sang the blues
You know feeling good was good enough for me...(you just finished it didn't you?)

Oh and you're welcome, cause I know it's going to be stuck in your head now. At least it wasn't , the wheels on the bus go round and round, round and round...or bum bum bumble bee bumble bee tuna, I like bum bum bumble bee bumble bee tuna. Oh and since I mentioned bees. I'm bringing home a baby bumble bee won't my mommy be so proud of me

Oh my god I am being mean, I guess that's because I feel like a little tea pot short and stought. Or maybe it's because I would like to buy the world a coke and teach the world to sing in perfect harmony.

Okay I will stop now but like all good jingles when it rains, it pours.

That's my conspiracy to taking over the world. I figure if I can drive people Insain with getting things stuck in their heads they won't notice I am taking over until it's too late.

Sorry Arathu I actually had a reason for quoting you but I got side tracked. WOW WHAT A WONDERFUL RIDE. if I remember why I will post again.

While I completely agree that acting in one's sphere of influence is the most useful, non-depressing, effective form of action, I do find the popularity of the straw man bizarre with regards to the dismissing of "conspiracy theories". And, in my observation, as much as we'd all, at times, like it to be so, making a declaration about something doesn't make it true. Not unlike conjuring some "golden age" of "fighting the power".

Thunder, we have a thing about being generally respectful in this Mycotopia community, and we do mostly give a fuck, as this is not the internet at large here.    This place it quite different, as a matter of fact.   This isn't Facebook.   It is a cut above.   I hope everyone sees that and tries to fit into this paradigm.   I've written of my battles with corruption in high places here, so I am not inclined to go into it now.    I have done masturbation of many forms, even the real kind.   You can jack what you like and I won't dis you for it.

 

Please forgive me if I have mistaken your tone.

THE FBI’S INCREASINGLY ODD SILENCE ON BOSTON BOMBING

 

As another mega-budget Hollywood movie about the Boston Marathon bombing nears release,  the mainstream media are finally addressing the many unanswered questions concerning the mastermind of the bombing, Tamerlan Tsarnaev.

 

And yet — four years after the bombing and two years after Tamerlan’s younger brother Dzhokhar was sentenced to death for his role — the feds still aren’t talking.

 

WhoWhatWhy readers will be familiar with most of these open questions:

 

•  How was Tamerlan able to travel back and forth to the country from which he sought asylum in 2012, despite being on multiple terror watchlists?

 

•  Why was he not questioned about the 2011 murder of three of his friends?

 

•  Was Tamerlan working for or manipulated by the feds for some purpose?

 

•  Was the FBI or some other federal agency using Tamerlan’s desire to become a US citizen as leverage?

 

•  Did the Tsarnaevs have help constructing the bombs?

 

•  Was anyone else involved in planning or inspiring the plot?

 

As we highlighted in April, ABC News investigative reporter Michele McPhee published a damning exposé which documents the suspicion in Boston’s local law enforcement that the FBI is covering up its interactions with Tamerlan Tsarnaev prior to the bombing. McPhee’s investigation led her to conclude that there is indeed an FBI cover-up afoot.

 

More recently, WBUR’s (Boston’s NPR station) Meghna Chakrabarti produced an hour-long special titled “Unanswered Questions about Tamerlan Tsarnaev.” Taking off from McPhee’s findings, the radio program explores some of the mysteries about which the government remains tight-lipped.

 

Chakrabarti concludes: “There is still a tight shroud of secrecy wrapped around much of this case.”

 

While she is more circumspect about the possibility of a cover-up, her long and detailed account points to a raft of strange coincidences and anomalies that scream for further explanation.

 

It’s not just the media that’s still being shut out.

 

As Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s automatic federal death penalty appeal gets underway, prosecutors are refusing to turn over “classified” documents to Tsarnaev’s appellate lawyers.

 

What’s in those “classified” documents? It’s impossible to say, but they would likely shed some light on the unresolved mysteries surrounding Tamerlan Tsarnaev.

 

The lead prosecutor in Tsarnaev’s trial, William Weinreb, told WBUR that he thinks “it is fair to say that there are still a number of questions unanswered about that case. Maybe the answers will emerge over time.”

 

Sounds like the lead prosecutor was also kept in the dark.


Epidemic of Secrecy
 

The trial of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was, from the beginning, cloaked in unprecedented levels of secrecy.

 

Various media organizations raised issues with the inordinate number of sealed motions during the high-profile trial.

 

The attorney who defended Whitey Bulger — another notorious Boston killer the feds were eager to distance themselves from — characterized Tsarnaev’s trial as an “epidemic of secrecy.”

 

Bulger, the South Boston mobster, was employed by the FBI for years as an informant — all the while carrying on his murderous mob operations in and around Boston. Bulger’s attorney, Jay Carney, told the Boston Globe “transparency

 

should be the presumption” instead of all the secrecy and sealed documents in the Tsarnaev trial.

 

That didn’t happen. The government invoked that old standby “national

security,”  allowing it to shroud important details of the back story in darkness.

 

Robert Ambrogi, executive director of the Massachusetts Newspaper Publishers Association, told Politico that the information lockdown “tells you that major parts of this case are being conducted out of the public view. If ever there was a

case that cries out to be conducted in a public forum, this is it. It’s pretty shocking.”

 

The judge in the case, George A. O’Toole Jr., ignited a veritable firestorm among Boston media when, three months after the conclusion of the trial, he continued to refuse to release the names of jurors.

 

Experts quoted in media accounts at the time characterized the long delay as “unprecedented,” “an aberration,” and as having “no possible rationale.”

 

Even Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s defense team, who presumably have a right to unfettered access to evidence against their client, found themselves filing numerous motions complaining to the judge about a lack of cooperation from the FBI and

prosecution during the discovery phase of the trial.

 

Compounding their difficulties, Tsarnaev was placed on draconian Special Administrative Measures (SAMs) that severely limited the defense team’s ability to interact freely with their client. It also continues to prevent Tsarnaev from

communicating with anyone from the media — as WhoWhatWhy found out when we were given a Kafkaesque runaround after we requested an interview.

 

Congress Shut Out
 

Because of FBI stonewalling, a delegation of congressmen felt compelled to travel to Russia, trying to get answers about Tamerlan Tsarnaev. Upon returning, Massachusetts Rep. Bill Keating (D-MA) said the FSB were more forthcoming than the FBI. (The FSB is Russia’s federal security service.)

 

Russia had warned the FBI back in 2011 that Tamerlan Tsarnaev was becoming radicalized, and might be making plans to travel to Russia to engage in terrorist activity. The FBI claims to have conducted an assessment of Tsarnaev but

found no links to terrorism and closed the investigation.

 

The FBI’s pre-bombing interest in Tsarnaev thus came under intense, albeit short-lived, scrutiny.

Sen. Chuck Grassley, chairman of the Judiciary Committee which oversees the FBI, wrote a scathing letter to then-Director James Comey complaining about a lack of transparency to his oversight committee.

 

When the Inspector General of the Intelligence Community published an unclassified summary of “intelligence failures” that led up to the bombing, it too noted a lack of cooperation from the FBI, writing that “access to certain information was

significantly delayed.”

 

And when 47 inspectors general from various executive agencies sent a letter to Congress in 2014 complaining about a growing problem of stonewalling of investigations by numerous executive branch agencies, the FBI’s lack of cooperation

on the Boston Marathon bombing investigation was cited front and center.

 

As a result of that letter, a bipartisan Congressional coalition introduced an amendment to the original 1978 Inspector General Act. Grassley, a cosponsor of the amendment, wrote at the time that a “federal agency’s failure to give its

inspector general timely access to information as required by law raises red flags. It begs the question, ‘What are you trying to hide?’”

Yeah, I would like to apologize for that. I had been drinking and was a dick, i'm sorry. I will stay off the boards when I drink, I become an ass, but I think attention to local affairs is MUCH more important than anything else.
