Sen­a­tor Bernie Sanders has offi­cially intro­duced a bill that would elim­i­nate under­grad­u­ate tuition. Titled the “Col­lege for All Act,” the bill would elim­i­nate the $70 bil­lion dol­lar tuition costs at all 4-year pub­lic col­leges and universities…

Under the plan, the Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment would cover 67% — $47 bil­lion dol­lars each year — of the costs.

States would be required to pro­duce the remain­ing 33% of the costs, or 23 bil­lion dollars…

The bill plans to cover these costs by ini­ti­at­ing a Robin Hood Tax on Wall Street. A .5% spec­u­la­tion fee will be charged on invest­ment houses, hedge funds, and other stock trades. Addi­tion­ally, a .1% fee will be charged on bonds, and a .005% fee will be charged on derivatives.”

After Pat’s [Tillman] Birthday

http://www.truthdig.com/report/item/after_pats_birthday_20150524Posted on May 24, 2015

Pat and Kevin Tillman

Cour­tesy of the Till­man Family

By Kevin Till­man

This Memo­r­ial Day week­end, Truthdig com­mem­o­rates the legacy of deceased U.S. infantry­man Pat Till­man by repub­lish­ing our most pop­u­lar piece, “After Pat’s Birth­day,” writ­ten by his brother, Kevin Till­man (pic­tured with his arm around Pat), and orig­i­nally posted on Truthdig on Oct. 19, 2006.

It is Pat’s birth­day on Novem­ber 6, and elec­tions are the day after.  It gets me think­ing about a con­ver­sa­tion I had with Pat before we joined the mil­i­tary.  He spoke about the risks with sign­ing the papers.  How once we com­mit­ted, we were at the mercy of the Amer­i­can lead­er­ship and the Amer­i­can peo­ple.  How we could be thrown in a direc­tion not of our voli­tion.  How fight­ing as a sol­dier would leave us with­out a voice… until we got out.

Much has hap­pened since we handed over our voice:

Some­how we were sent to invade a nation because it was a direct threat to the Amer­i­can peo­ple, or to the world, or har­bored ter­ror­ists, or was involved in the Sep­tem­ber 11 attacks, or received weapons-grade ura­nium from Niger, or had mobile weapons labs, or WMD, or had a need to be lib­er­ated, or we needed to estab­lish a democ­racy, or stop an insur­gency, or stop a civil war we cre­ated that can’t be called a civil war even though it is.  Some­thing like that.

Some­how our elected lead­ers were sub­vert­ing inter­na­tional law and human­ity by set­ting up secret pris­ons around the world, secretly kid­nap­ping peo­ple, secretly hold­ing them indef­i­nitely, secretly not charg­ing them with any­thing, secretly tor­tur­ing them.  Some­how that overt pol­icy of tor­ture became the fault of a few “bad apples” in the military.

Some­how back at home, sup­port for the sol­diers meant hav­ing a five-year-old kinder­gartener scrib­ble a pic­ture with crayons and send it over­seas, or slap­ping stick­ers on cars, or lob­by­ing Con­gress for an extra pad in a helmet.

American Justice, Robert H. Jackson demands and gets death penalty for those who planned and waged war of aggression.

The charges in the indict­ment that the defen­dants planned and waged aggres­sive war are charges of the utmost grav­ity. War is essen­tially an evil thing. Its con­se­quences are not con­fined to the bel­liger­ent states alone, but affect the whole world. To ini­ti­ate a war of aggres­sion, there­fore, is not only an inter­na­tional crime; it is the supreme inter­na­tional crime, dif­fer­ing only from other crimes in that it con­tains within itself the accu­mu­lated evil of the whole.”

Jus­tice Robert H. Jack­son
Pros­e­cu­tor at the Trial of the Major Ger­man War Crim­i­nals
Nurem­berg, Ger­many
Octo­ber 1, 1946

*******

Yo kids,

Those “last cen­tury” war crim­i­nals are of the same men­tal makeup as  the ones who killed Lin­coln, killed Kennedy, killed MLK…the same ones who lied us into Viet­nam, who lied us into Reaganomics, who stole the elec­tion of 2001, who  lied us into Iraq.

These are law­less, crim­i­nal peo­ple by virtue of their inhu­man­ity, deep seated igno­rance and vir­u­lent hatreds. They are racist, Judeo-Christian, right-wing, and killers. They despise edu­ca­tion, arts, artists, writ­ers and any­one with any respect for the nation. They will throw the world away with their anti-life stance on the envi­ron­ment, health­care, human and par­tic­u­larly women’s rights. They have no con­nec­tion to human­ity, the world, the nation, or life itself. It is what makes them devoid of empa­thy, inca­pable of jus­tice, and hence, sub-human.

They are anti-reason, anti-science, anti-modernity, anti-life, anti-love, anti-peace and always pro-lynching, pro-bombing, pro-starvation, pro-slavery, pro-political mur­der, pro-war crimes, pro-segregation and pro-corruption. They have no polit­i­cal aims or ambi­tion other than utter and com­plete polit­i­cal, phys­i­cal and emo­tional dom­i­na­tion. They are fas­cist, mil­i­tant, mur­der­ous, lying pig-shit, the women as well as the men.

This is the same group who had me pub­licly beaten and who con­spired and con­tinue to attempt to mur­der me…everyone knows who they are…from the supe­rior court jus­tice to just last week’s lat­est pig-shit who spit in my food. And it’s all good with them.

They are the domes­tic enemy within…and very reli­gious. So, be alert and remem­ber, any­one who will lie to you will, given the chance…murder you too.

The Gospel of Jesus as taught by American Christians

 

The Gospel of American Christianity

The Gospel of Amer­i­can Christianity

Did you ever notice how peo­ple who believe in life have usu­ally killed their gods, but the peo­ple who believe in gods, will usu­ally kill any­thing that moves?

You fuck­ing pigs. You mur­der­ous scum-shit. Fuck you, fuck your gods, fuck your religions, fuck every­thing you do, every­thing you touch, and every­thing you think. You pigs. You vio­lent, lying, igno­rant, care­less, fuck­ing pigs (no offense to actual pigs intended).

This is what you bas­tards have done to my Amer­ica. It is what you have made my Amer­ica into…nothing but baby killers, war mon­gers, war crim­i­nals, and destroy­ers of the planet. You pig shit sonofabitches.…we should have wiped you all out dur­ing our Civil War…given you noth­ing, no sec­ond chance…you pigs…you vicious, lying, mur­der­ous pigs. Fuck all of you, every sin­gle one of you, espe­cially the ones who just grin, keep quiet, and think that their silence is enough to make them all that much better.

You stu­pid fucks…it’s what they use to operate…your silence is their cover…you monsters.
