Sheriff Jeffrey Mann



Part 35 of the "Sexploitation Nation" series of this journal is to review the case of DeKalb County Sheriff Jeffrey Mann, who was arrested after exposing himself/ dickflashing another cop/ dick (dick was a term used years back for cop or detective), which I couldnt help to laugh trying to picture it going down in my head {:-) heh, heh, heh, heh, heh. Sheriff Mann is now charged with 2 misdemeanors of not only indecent exposure, but also obstruction for running from the officer he allegedly exposed himself to in Atlanta's Piedmont Park one recent evening. Anyone familiar with Piedmont Park knows that it's also known for being a "cruise" at night for gay guyz picking up on other gay guyz while taking a late night stroll ... years back in the 70's and 80's there was alot of cool bands, musicians and pot smoke- ins that I remember too. But the public criticism of Sheriff Mann has been harsh, and he has my sympathy ... I mean, the Sheriff didnt really hurt anyone, so stop being such pussies about it. We live in a semi- puritanical country, that gets their panties in a bind over every little nonsensical sex thing, blowing it out of proportion. This is not to say that Sheriff Mann is guilty of these allegations/ charges ... but just to say ... if he did do it, he was simply looking for love in the wrong places. Below some newsread/ video linked, and to close out the posting I wanted to dedicate that old classic song from Texas' own Johnny Lee to Sheriff Mann ... which I thought of since the lyrics of the song were perfect for this story. Best of luck to you Sheriff.

TRUMP: No politician in history 'has been treated worse or more unfairly' than me ... Thanx to Business Insider




This posting will serve the "How to Privatize America" & "Political Corruption & Ethics" series of this journal/ blog. This is some news that has not really been showcased as much as it should is why I wanted to do this posting ... it is much more importante than wondering who is spying on or hacking who, and related silly chat over Russia. This has been lower profile side news of sort that quickly became sidelined on the bench ... I mean, the biggest news over this last week or 2 has mostly been about this Comey and Trump investigations, allegations of dealing with Russia on the sly, etc ... all basically worthless, unless you can set grounds for an actual impeachment process ... if not though, just another distraction that will amount to nothing of any worth to Americans. I opened above with a video of President Trump the other day in a commencement speech to the 2017 graduating class of the US Coast Guard Academy. He made a good point as far as standing strong against opposition of course, but he also done this to publicize and play the "victim card" as well ... so his point about standing strong though is importante, which inspires me to stand against what he is doing to our country in this posting, and frankly I look at Trump as not much more than a unethical and corrupt spoiled brat, who has cheated business folks and taxpayers in the billions over the years. We are also spending way too much on him privately as if he were a damn sheikh and his familia was royal ... and this is "familia", because his son- in- law Jared is key in this and will make a nice bundle off this, these closed door dealings are not transparent to the public.

And YES, I have been more than fair with Trump and gave him the benefit of doubt as well in previous postings ... so please dont categorize me and my opinions as coming from this politipop culture left wing only perspective, I'm an independent who is both liberal and conservative. As far as his comment about himself as a politician being treated worse and unfairly than any others in history ... I have to disagree, I mean, how short sighted does he think we are? Just in my lifetime (which goes from President's Eisenhower to the present), the most unfairly and worse treated President has to be President Obama. President Obama, despite his unique bipartisan qualities and having to deal with the mess the Bush/ Cheney administration left, was shit all over on relentlessly through his Presidency and called names far more worse than Trump has ever been called ... just imagine if Obama was to pull this shit like Trump did with the Saudis as you will read below, and muslim clerics calling Obama a "servant of Allah" what kind of criticism Obama would have received on top of all he already got. But before I go on to my rants any further ... I linked some importante newsread/ video below as far as paying for Trump's vacations and these P3's (public private partnerships) he's pushing ... Thanx to Congressman Ted Lieu of California also for pushing this pay to play vacation SWAMP (Stop the Waste And Misuse by the President) bill. This posting is also an extension of my previous Trumphrastructure posting ... also a link below, how Texas/ Austin is rejecting Trump's infrastructure vision already, which I'm glad of. After, I will add my part below.

For those conservative Americans that supported Trump 110% with good hopes, that stand for liberty, rights, sovereignty of your states and country, rebuilding America with fair trade and business, etc ... so far you been supporting the wrong man, plain and simple ... just in this short time President Trump been in office, he has been the epitome of neoliberal globalization and poster child for corporate communism. When I read what was going on above in the news, as an American and Texan ... I was downright disgusted. And it is so deep it's almost unimaginable all this coming so quick from a President who recently in his campaign focused so much on making America great again, how countries have been shafting us, opposition to radical Islamic terrorism and Sharia Law, cutting spending and free rides for Wall Street, draining the swamp in Washington, being an outsider, etc. What President Trump is doing in this, is expanding the powers of Wall Street, and especially of countries like Saudi Arabia (Empire Files), who been wanting to invest in America much more with a passion, and they already have too much vested interests as it is in our businesses, spending and politics. The Saudis are simply looking to triple and quadruple their gains/ return investments quick for their own sovereign wealth fund and making infrastructure and development in techs, communications and everything else in their country, using our government, taxes and many American based corporations and finance to do it, and the investment is considered "low risk". Trump's crew expecting Saudis will invest $40 billion here of their money? I would bet somehow through backdoor legislation in tax laws, that we the American taxpayers will indirectly pay for it all.

All we do these dayz, is let oligarchs drain our finances/ revenues to where we have to depend on them to do what we should have been doing ourselves with our tax revenues and businesses. I mean, you should tell us that Mexico will pay for it, because that is how stupid the President and many in Washington thinx Americans are. On top of it, I dont like giving so much power over our country, business and legislation to Saudi Arabia, plus they have a horrible record on human rights or any kind of rights of people alone that are not in their "royal family" circles. They ARE NOT a democracy, and if they havent changed in the 80 year or so span that we been dealing with them and feeding their regional conflicts, how likely is it they'll change much any time soon, eh? But this is all twisted in to the neoliberal globalization shit ... I mean even recently, they just put Saudi Arabia on the UN Women's Rights Commission as a member (Fortune) ... imagine that!, this shows how deep this agenda is ... Saudi Arabia is a cornerstone of Sharia Law, and a top oppressor of even women's rights worldwide. It's one thing to sell arms to them, but to let them have more control financially and politically in America is insane, because these conflicts, interventions and back room deals we involve ourselves in over the decades alwayz have a good first appearance, then a sour outcome, and we end up getting the shaft more ... I have seen this time and again where friends become foes and vice versa just in my life time with various bad pacts we made and paid too much in support. The trillions that we spent alone and continue to on intervention projects in this region of the world could have taken care all of our own infrastructure issues or other domestic needs.

For the millions of muslims that think that President Trump may be being guided through prayer to help them or whatever, and thinking that this will miraculously make muslim countries better off for them ... you are pissing in the wind, this will also intensify even more oppression of various muslims around the world in time economically except for the chosen few at the top such as those within the Saudis empire. Anyone that gets out of line will be attacked and forced into more regime changes and austerity, such as what is happening in Syria, Iraq, or the extensive bombing and oppression in places like Yemen, Palestinian territory, the possibility of teaming with Saudis to force regime change in Iran ... or wherever else they decide. Another objective in this, is to form an alliance of global finance that breaks big power countries that have more sovereignty and control over their governments ... meaning they want to force China and Russia for example, to play their way or face a reduction in economic leverage and trade down the road ... China and Russia knows this too. The whole point to get rid of any government, socialism or communism for instance, was to replace it with corporate/ banking communism. Saudis for example are trying to buy into everything, not just here in America where they are already into everything from transportation to communications and politics, but around the world as well to widen their power/ reach and sovereign wealth fund. The Saudis know that just being dependent on their oil is going to hurt in dayz to come without more diverse international investments, plus this move really boosts growth in infrastructure, development and industries in their country. They fear that strong civil disobedience will come in their own country soon, and they been feeling their own spending pinch, and hearing the dissatisfaction of their own to where they needed to scale back their austerity (Bloomberg).

As far as our own infrastructure problems in America ... this is why we been milked for years ... to force us to depend on privatization for everything we need now and shut down any of our taxes and spending of being governed and managed by our people. These so called private public partnership deals have been shady, and I'm glad to see Texas challenge this as far as this $30 billion of private funding for these 18 road projects, and to examine and challenge carefully this estimated $270 billion in transportation infrastructure costs that are being planned for Texas through 2035. People here in Texas are being very outspoken about all these toll projects, and are going to avoid them too in mass numbers. We can build highway infrastructure ourselves with our taxes, put a state toll, when the tolls pay it off it becomes public ... we done it time and again. Things like this "asset recycling" crap of leasing our state and federal assets in return for money that can be spent on other projects that lack funding needs to be carefully dissected and examined too. What would they want to lease and why, terms, etc? ... I have many questions on that one ... I dont want to lease federal land for fracking as example. I'm pro- business myself, and am all for private investment, such as Texas High Speed Rail, air transportation, freight transport, commercial/ residential development, etc, there is plenty of options for private investment ... but I'm not for making every damn highway/ freeway in America tollwayz though, or taking over all our public schools, public/ national parks, libraries, social services, police and fire for example. What we been seeing is a takeover of all our infrastructure and business, while the public which are supposed to be partners in this so called "P3" gig are shut out entirely, and the road were on, it's just a matter of time before we own less and less of everything from our public services, schools, to our homes and businesses, we will have no voice in our contracts, only being dictated to by CEO's, and only be able to frankly just boycott everything in time in solidarity to get any hold on it.

JOHNNY WINTER: "Interview 1984", "Stranger Blues", "Tobacco Road/ feat. Edgar Winter", "Mean Town Blues" & "Jumpin' Jack Flash"




Johnny Winter guitar and Janis Joplin vox, Boston 1969



***** http://www.johnnywinter.net/





Johnny Winter- Interview- 11/ 4/ 1984- Rock Influence (Official) ... Thanx to Docs&Interviews on MV




This posting for the music/ arts honour roll society is way past due, to honour and feature the great Johnny Winter (wikipedia) from down on the Texas Coast city of Beaumont, I mean like, I been planning for Johnny to be in here for a few years! A few postings back when I posted the piece on the legend Robert Johnson and talking about some of the great progressive amplified blues sounds that were inspired by Robert, I couldnt stop thinking of Johnny ... Johnny falls into the cream of the crop category when it comes to this. Not just being a excellent blues rock guitarist, songwriter and blues vocalist ... Johnny also produced 3 Grammy winning albums for Muddy Waters, as well as several other Grammy nominated recordings, he's a Hall of Famer, and worked with so many in the industry of not only blues but rock ... I'll let the Wiki link handle much of that though. I myself havent seen Johnny "live" since back in the 1970's ... but can tell you, this guy when it comes to blues picking and slide on guitar, Johnny really smokes ... and I also had the opportunity to see him in a small venue back in the day with good acoustics. I opened this posting at top with a "84" interview with Johnny to give a little background and his roots in music, and basically coming from familia of music. Of course his brother Edgar Winter worked with him too, as well as Edgar going off into his successful rock music career in the 70's. Back in those dayz, union card or not, there was such an open invitation in music, it hadnt got too corporate controlled at that time as it is now. When I first moved to Texas in the 1970's, I was living in Houston, the scene was wide open and loose, with such a good amount of venues with so many great blues and rock music locals that I never even heard of, me coming from the east coast. I was so excited like a little kid in a goddamn candy store wired up on sugar ... because mind you, this was a time when America coast to coast was saturated with disco joints! I had the opportunity to sit in and jam with many folks myself ... who just said ... "come on ... grab a mic man", like a big social gathering of various musicians, that were experimenting with everything except pop music or disco.

For this selection I wanted to mix it as much as possible and keep it "live" ... I open below with Johnny in Barcelona doing "Stranger Blues" because of the excellent slide work that he does on this. Then I put up the "Tabacco Road" piece that Edgar worked on with Johnny, because Edgar does some really great blues vocal work and sax on it (he plays keyboards as well on it). Also when I look at Edgar's compositions, he tended to incorporate a jazz lean in them ... where Johnny's compositions tended to lean to blues ... at least in my view. Below that, I had to add the classic "Mean Town Blues" which is a favourite of mine, especially with Johnny's vocal work and blues guitar work. I closed out with the Stones cover of "Jumpin' Jack Flash" for a little classic rock and roll. Enough from me ... Enjoy!

JORDAN EDWARDS KILLING 2017: When a Teen Party Turns DIRE ... While Putting Our Kidz in the LINE OF FIRE ... America's MILITARIZED POLICE Battle Ground ... The "Rogue Cop" Edition ... (POLICE BRUTALITY PT.28)




Jordan Edwards with his dad Odell Edwards


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



District Attorney: Evidence was there for murder charge in death of Jordan Edwards ... Thanx to WFAA Media



This posting will serve as Part 28 of the "Police Brutality" series of this journal/ blog, to focus on the killing of Jordan Edwards in Balch Springs (Dallas area suburban city). I try to cover what I can in this series, and dont put anything in this series unless I see clear cut brutality and excessive force. But because of the frequent amount of innocent people being killed in America by law enforcement, it's hard to keep up with them all ... this is a small local blog and I'm not a professional writer or journalist, and just keeping up with this blog is an effort at that. I opened this posting on top with a news video with Dallas County District Attorney Faith Johnson, because Johnson made the right move as far as arresting and charging Officer Oliver of Balch Springs PD with murder in a quick manner without the usual grand jury review ... there was clear probable cause and evidence to indict right away without waiting for months with no transparency, period. And I would hope that DA Johnson pursues this trial aggressively as she did indicting Oliver, because sometimes you may get an arrest/ indictment, but then the case gets twisted in the trial, and the accused officer ends up with a slap on the wrist. Too many times across America whether Texas or elsewhere ... it is just opposite, with fiddle faddling around behind the scenes, no transparency from courts, little from law enforcement departments, even in clear cases of murder having extreme difficulty getting arrests and convictions of any in law enforcement, etc. Because of this delay or lack of action and reprimanding even officers when wrong, and having an increased militarization of these departments ... rogue cops are on the loose coast to coast these dayz that are emboldened more and more each and every time they are allowed to get away with criminal actions, beatings, including murder. Balch Springs is an independent small city/ suburb ... BUT ... it is in the County of Dallas. One of the biggest problems in America is the politicians, local, state, and in Washington ... they have all these crocodile tears in press conferences or on the campaign trail about these murders by police and brutality ... but what the fuck are they doing to change these deadly and excessive force policies? ... as long as you tell police to do these things by legislating law, they will do their job as such. The key to this is PRESSURE on these politicians, and they come on both the right and left, some of the most worst cases of this brutality these dayz, is in what's considered as the so called most liberated, culturally and politically diverse areas of the country ... why is that?, dont take my word for it ... look it up and see for yourself. I mean ... many of our politicians are creating this domestic militarized police battle ground, that puts our citizens and children in the line of fire.



Press conference from the family of Jordan Edwards, the teen fatally shot by Balch Springs police. ... Thanx to The Dallas Morning News





As far as kidz ... my heart goes out to Jordan's familia, being a parent and grandparent myself. Jordan is the dream kid of many parents and teachers actually, no gang affiliations, straight "A" student, involved in Mesquite High School sports in football, laid back and easy to get along with, does pretty much everything the right way, eh? ... I mean, this kid was like in the scholarship category. Jordan's dad Odell looks very familiar, I'm almost certain we met somewhere, someones home, social gathering or whatever ... just cant place him, but feel sure we met, talked or something. This happening in Balch Springs to me is surprising ... I'm familiar with the area and frequent over there because I know folks in neighbouring Mesquite, and the "Pleasant Grove" area of neighbouring Dallas, and far east Dallas, I live about 20+ miles straight down LBJ Freeway in northwest Dallas. Balch Springs is a small suburban city with only about 25,000 population, it is really laid back, it has a very rural type atmosphere at that, very familia oriented, etc. I mean ... what in Hell was this cop thinking, firing a semi- auto high powered rifle (MC5 Modern Carbine) at a kidz party in a residential neighbourhood like that?, do you realize what stray or deflected bullets from that type rifle can do in a tight residential area like that? ... especially with this officers professional shooting background, U.S. Army background serving in Iraq, etc. ... this is NOT a combat zone. Not even from what I read, should the other officer with Oliver used his firearm to break out the window of the car at that ... and the shots fired into the passenger window were targeted to kill, they were head shots at a fairly close range ... windows of the car were up and no visible weapons, threats or gunfire at that moment ... the shots were heard according to the body cam while officers were in the residence, not at the vehicle. Officer Oliver has been suspended in the past, even made to take anger management classes for going off in a Dallas County courtroom, and even recently while off duty, in a minor fender bender car accident, where a lady hit his back bumper, he went off on her and pulled his gun on her ... why is this guy even on the department? If it wasnt for the officers wearing body cameras that they didnt start wearing until about 2014, this wouldnt have even been exposed for the truth in this incident. The officers falsified their report and said the vehicle taking off tried to back into them in a threatening way, justifying deadly force, the cam after review showed it was a lie, that's when Balch Springs PD Chief Haber fired Oliver, after first backing Oliver simply on the word of Oliver.

Basically these kids were at a house partying with other kidz they knew, a neighbour called police to question if there was underage drinking going on and about noise, and it being after 10pm in such a laid back residential area, many folks dont like to hear loud music. When cops arrived at the house, it seemed to be cool, but some kidz knowing the cops were coming freaked out and started taking off to get away ... I mean, they're kidz and panicked, what do you expect? ... our kidz and grandkidz do the same thing too. Jordan, his brother and a couple friends jumped in their car as well, who got scared after they thought they heard gunshots, Jordan was the front passenger not driving, and decided to just get out of the area. Supposedly witnesses and body camera recording on the officers said there was the sound of gunfire also, if so, this would also make kidz scramble quick, but I havent seen/ heard that evidence yet ... sometimes I heard folks mistaken a car backfire or firecrackers too as gunfire. If there was gunfire in the area, there was no gunfire obviously coming from the car Jordan and friends were in, if officers were there at the vehicle after the alleged gunfire, so no one in the car was shooting at officers or displayed any weapons, they were leaving the scene. I seen NO evidence as of yet that those kidz and vehicle posed ANY threat, they were simply driving away. If the car drives off and officers feel it to be suspicious of something, you call it in and detail while tailing in pursuit till back up falls in line, etc ... it's simple, and you'll take them anyway after with a road block or spikes or whatever, plus, once the vehicle goes outside that Balch Springs boundary line, you'll immediately have Dallas or Mesquite PD join in. What you dont do, is freak out and run to your cruiser and pull out heavy hardware like a goddamn Modern Carbine MC5 and go into combat kill mode ... what the fuck is wrong with you? ... especially knowing this was just some young teens partying in this type non- urban or non- threatening area. I dont give a shit what some rule book sayz or a police chief trying to justify this kind of action ... just use goddamn common sense. I expect Oliver's defense to use something like PTSD or the gunfire sound, and assuming these kidz fired the shots as defense to try to justify Oliver's actions in a trial, still early, so we'll see what comes next. They say Oliver didnt get a grand jury review to indict him? ... well, he will get to make his case in front of a grand jury and get a fair trial, eh? ... this way it can be in the open court and no closed door crap. And even if a jury unanimously came back quick with a slam dunk guilt verdict, Oliver's defense can request the judge to impose sentence instead of jury on sentencing phase ... being, the judge is usually more compassionate on sentencing when it comes to convicted cops than a jury. Yes, the familia of Jordan should sue as well, this was totally uncalled for, the civil rights groups should jump in, and pressure be applied on every level in our community. The Edwards familia asked for calm and peace ... and the people have respected that request, and once again, put their faith in justice ... it is now the job of the county/ state courts to do their job and make sure justice is served. Below I added some newsread links, and the first one from WFAA has Jordan's friends, brothers Maximus and Maxwell Everette who were the backseat passengers of the car explain their experience and incident.

SVETLANAS- BUS INVADERS Ep.909 [Warped Edition 2015] ... Thanx to Digital Tour Bus



***** Musicinstinkt.de: Olga, Diste (Svetlana)- 06/ 26/ 2015 ... (interview)




This entry into the music/ arts honour roll society of this journal/ blog is to honour and showcase some of the music of the Russian- Italian crew Svetlanas out of Moscow & Milan. I see this crew as a hidden treasure still in the trenches and touring all the time, that has not been fully recognized yet or have reached that peak of potential yet they are clearly capable of ... they are a crew that gives fresh tastes to raw punk music with a touch of class instrumentally and performance- wise, a real gem! With 3 albums and a few 7" inch singles and busting ass working on bills with so many, they are really on a roll, and now touring America! They been around as far as I collect from around 2009, they had a couple change ups as far as members, but seem to be solid in this line up with Olga/ vox, Diste/ drums, Ginger/ guitar and Steve/ bass. I included above a short vid with frontwoman/ vox Olga, and drummer Diste while on tour here in America ... and below that I added an interview with them at Musicinstinkt.de to answer some questions and show how politics and standing strong in the face of the establishment, in Olga's case being Russia, is especially importante as a message in their music. Here in America, they are more free to be able to express their free speech, and I am thrilled that they made it here as far as work and getting on an American label, Altercation Records of New York/ Austin, TX. Olga and her mother are banned from going to their home of Russia, and Olga and the band from touring there. Russia under Putin seems to have issues with some arts/ music, depending on content, making it so the underground scene and music in Russia ... has to STAY underground if it isnt what's acceptable, since everything artists may speak of and advocate in their free speech, art and opinions is censored or analyzed I guess from what I gather. Olga feels confident as well, if she went back to Russia at this time, she would be arrested and jailed for her speaking out about what the Russian government is to her and others ... and what President Vladimir Putin is about to them. You are certainly welcome here (unless the Trump administration tries to change that), and hope ya'll feel at home here too. Below I chose some of their work to showcase here ... and coming from an old school guy/ me who has seen and shook hands with some of the best of the best in the underground industry over the years, as far as the punk type genre, this crew I rank in the "best of" category ... this band does everything right and keeps it raw and fresh, and I wish them success and fruits to come for their work in the future ... Enjoy!

Lucy Parsons (1886)



This posting will serve 3 series of this journal/ blog ... "Public Patriots", "The Awakening" ... and I also wanted to put it in the "Black History/ Harmon Loft" series too, which is a sort of personal dedication to a fella named Harmon from years back, which Harmon unintentionally inspired this series. I'm sure Harmon would be surprised to see this if he were alive ... especially coming from that on the edge rambunctious troubled white kid he took in and helped many years back ... and ... "you see Red, I do know how to read and write!!" heh, heh, heh, heh, heh {:-) ... (personal humour only ... and Red was his nickname, because of the reddish tint to his hair). What inspires this posting though, is the May Day demonstrations across America and parts of the globe monday (Truthout/ Democracy Now News), I been following much of it and thought it was really a great turnout of folks! As I was reading up on it and listening to the public response from folks ... I thought to do a posting, and who better to highlight for this posting but Lucy Parsons (wikipedia) came to mind ... Mrs. Parsons also inspired in part the title of this posting as well. Lucy being one of the great leaders and organizers in the 19th and 20th centuries of workers rights, inspired many and belonged and worked with so many groups and individuals, and a cornerstone of the May Day movement to this day. Not much is really known about Lucy's roots, she declined to talk much about it, but there is reason to believe that she was born into slavery in Texas, and that she is also part black, even if she didnt publicize it, which makes sense, especially marrying a white man and former Confederate soldier, Albert Parsons ... and all the pressure on black folks at that time, plus sort of being on the run with hubby, fleeing Texas and going to Chicago. Did Albert inspire Lucy? ... of course to an extent, they worked together for a common cause ... they were ... sick of the shit, period. But that is not reason to say that Lucy just rode the coattail of Albert ... of course when Albert was executed with others, for his part as a "labour rights leader/ speaker" in what was known as the "Haymarket affair" ... his wife Lucy had every goddamn reason to be upset and to avenge the death of Albert as well, and to me, it was just another one of those shady evidence kangaroo trials.

Regardless of any political labels Lucy may have identified with ... or the labels she was given by so many that hated her guts to the core ... what is most importante is what she actually done, and in particular for American workers. Lucy was far more liked than hated though, thousands would come out the minute she was ready to speak or write, her work was everything to her. In my view ... Lucy was the cream of the crop of an American woman ... a freethinker with leadership qualities, didnt put up with bullshit, she was bold, intelligence with common sense, a survivalist, strong as steel and beautiful woman! What you see happening today with this repackaged garbage in the form of neoliberalism/ corporate communism on workers and smaller business people/ companies, backed and legislated through their cowardly politician suck- asses they pay off, is why this deserves to be challenged once again because of the garbage that's being peddled off on to folks ... it calls for an alliance with defiance. I was reading many comments online from people that criticized the demonstrations monday, of course with the usual talk about these demonstrators being anti American communists, pot smokers, kids living in their parents basements, niggers, immigrants, faggots and related ... the same old talk that Lucy and others of her time were labeled as basically. But these demonstrations is exactly the reason why we have any rights now whatsoever ... without this resistance, and even using violence when necessary and our people are under attack ... you/ we wouldnt have a pot to piss in concerning rights/ voice, paid sick leave/ vacation, living wages or a thing of worth. Many of those that quickly criticize these demonstrators and the movement to preserve and strengthen rights and real fair business ethics ... are the same folks that are first in line to accept their rights and utilize them, use their sick leave and vacation, and first to bitch when any of it is taken from them ... so think twice about who you stand with, eh? Many who criticize, should also put their money where their mouth is ... I mean ... dont use your vacation or sick leave, go ahead and work for $4 to $5 bucks an hour, perhaps you may like to take a job working in the fields with crops, being a janitor, or the other positions that you look down on, but depend on. If you love this oligarchy that is out to just rob you of every damn thing they can, including what you earned down to your own property, or you dont care to have a voice concerning issues in your communities ... go ahead like a fool and show your patriotism to them instead of your country, communities and what the democracy of this republic stands for.

I alwayz hear people say that poverty and dirt low unlivable poverty wages are simply part of capitalism, stabbing your workers, consumers and smaller shareholders in the back, etc ... I never heard anyone explain though ... why? Looking at the design of capitalism and how it should work, there should not even be any working person having to live in the streets, homeless or starving ... show me one reason why this is necessary for a healthy workable flow of capitalism and business? In other words ... what we really have, is not actual capitalism ... if it were, the design of it would work for all business, participants, markets, etc ... you would really have more progress, more diversified and distributed balanced capital and a much more thriving economy. And this is coming from a guy (me) that is all for free market, and I dont even believe that everyone should be equal as far as wealth, I believe that some should be rewarded more than others for their efforts and contributions, after all, I believe in merit. These demonstrators that fight for what is balanced business and right in a true business and capitalism society are heroes if anything, and leaders like Lucy are truly elite ... after all ... who makes this all work, eh? a handful of hustlers with too much unearned wealth they basically stolen, and snake oil peddlers? When challenging those who rob you (and that's exactly what they do), there is not just "one way" to resist, you have various wayz, from protesting peacefully, to boycotts of services to products, to pushing legislative change, to challenging in the courts, etc ... and if necessary ... violence. For those who tell demonstrators and freedom/ rights fighters that violence is no solution, I suggest that you tell that to the politicians that legislate for violence to be used on its citizens, tell that to the militarized police forces that brutally beat and injure demonstrators, tell that to those who attack workers unionization/ solidarity with violence ... tell that to those who order that people end up dead at the hands of government and law enforcement, tell that to the cops that kill innocent people for traffic stops or whatever. Violence used against people/ citizens, workers and consumers, justifies violence in return as defense even at least. Below, I added some links to read up more on Lucy Parsons, much of what Lucy wrote was burned in the fire she died in, and much confiscated by government, so much is missing too. But what Lucy and others done in this area and up to the present, is what this is all about, and why it's needed that these people that are considered as a threat to the establishment ... that each and everyone of them should be as dangerous as a thousand rioters.
