The selling of America

The following article published in TIME is just one example of the privatization of our country. This one is on our roads & bridges. Check out the name of the Carlyle Group mentioned as one of the investors. George Bush Sr. is with them. So on 9/11 he had a breakfast meeting of the Carlyle Group and was sitting next to OSAMA IN LADEN”S BROTHER who also was at the meeting. They watched that day unfold together on the TV. What are the odds of that?

THE DEFINITION OF FACSIM IS THE MELDING TOGETHER OF CORPORATIONS AND GOVERNMENT.

The privatization of the military is just now starting to seep into the public’s awareness because Black Water is in the news for it’s employees killing innocent iraqis. The truth is there are 171,000 US troops in Iraq and more private contractors than that over there as well. They do NOT answer to the military code of justice and they make ten times what our soldiers earn per day. They also have better armored vehicles and equipment.

Our media is now owned by FIVE CORPORATIONS. Some of those are also private military contractors in control of the information we are getting about the WAR.

I know I go on and on about this stuff but it just drives me nuts. THE AIR WAVES, THE ROADS BELONG TO US! THEY ARE “THE COMMONS.” IT’S UP TO US TO PROTECT THEM OR EVERYTHING WILL BE PRIVATIZED AND WE WILL BE CHARGED TO USE THEM ALL.

For states and cities looking to upgrade or replace aging infrastructure, partnering with private players is the biggest idea to come along since the interstate highway system started ribboning the country with asphalt in the 1950s. The appeal: governments can stop worrying about roads, bridges and tunnels, and companies get lucrative leases that allow them to collect money from drivers for generations. The craze is being driven by investors who crave the steady cash flow of decades’ worth of tolls. There are 71 projects worth $104 billion being considered for private development by state and local governments, according to the publication Public Works Financing. The proposals are feeding a new pack of investment funds from the likes of Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley and the Carlyle Group–as well as controversy over how roads should be paid for.

    The documents sent to Congress on Monday asked for another $42.3 billion, bringing the Pentagon total to $189.3 billion.

    At the Pentagon, a senior defense official said Congress should act quickly, saying lawmakers could at least pass the amounts requested months ago. Otherwise “we are going to be in some very difficult position in terms of cash flowing.”

    Without the money, there could be problems “very early in the year, particularly with the operating accounts for the Army,” the senior defense official told reporters.

    Here’s an idea…
    How about an accounting of every penny that’s going to private contractors out of that…val

  2. Comcast, which is among the nation’s largest telecommunication companies, charges $1,000 to install a FISA wiretap and $750 for each additional month authorities want to keep an eye on suspects, according to the company’s Handbook for Law Enforcement. Secrecy News obtained the document and published it Monday.

    “I was actually surprised that this was such a routine transaction that it would have a set fee,” said Steven Aftergood, director of the Federation of American Scientists’ Project on Government Secrecy.

    Aftergood, who runs the Secrecy News blog, told RAW STORY that the Comcast document was the only one he has seen outlining wiretap procedures and costs, so he couldn’t compare Comcast’s fees with those charged by other telecoms.

    George H. Bush and son Neil Bush are deeply involved in the “No child left behind” required by all our nations school. Neil Bush was involved in the Savings and Loan debacle several years ago and never paid a penny as a result.
