From Welfare State to Mass Kill State:
Spectacular Multi-facetted Mass Kill Programs Initiated by
Criminal Right Wing Republicans, Repugnicrats
In a move long expected and dreaded by the saner members of Congress and the American people, the nazis, eerrr republicrats moved to cut hundreds of billions of dollars from the federal budget. Obama signed off on these cuts that spared medicare and medicaid from the worst of the ones proposed by the nazis, eerrr republicans. Lets see what other kinds of programs are out there that hurt and ultimately kill off our people.
–The “Drug War” When I looked at the institutional policies and laws created to make Amerikkka’s drug war happen, I realized that once again an “US verses them” dynamic had been artificially socially engineered to create a scapegoated outgroup that had no voice or defense against the “New Prohibitionists” and their death dealing ways. This was yet another pretext for the further militarization of our nation and yet another illegitimate justification for people to exclude, punish, and attack socially and sometimes violently people whose medical and psychological condition would mean that they actually would have no choice about using certain addictive and other drugs in order to cope with their daily existence in hell on the mean streets of Amerikkka trying to get up enough money for another hit or blast. The nazis, eerrr republicrats had always asserted that a person chose to start using drugs and therefore should be denied adequate medical support while they were using and heavily addicted. I know though that if a person has a physiological makeup and much more importantly, a history of violent abuse and personal negation in their past, they are much more likely to use drugs or alcohol in order to cope with the daily horrors of their existence in their condition. One person I ran into working the streets had a $300/day heroin habit. We have 1 million people in jail for marijuana possession and trafficking in the US today; part of the highest prison population in the world, period. It should be understood that this is not creative business activity though the book Prison Profiteers explains the specific economic dynamics of this destructive fascist predation very well.
–In Seattle, WA and Vancouver BC something else happened since there was such high levels of addict/alcoholics on the streets of both cities. In Vancouver BC, the Insite safe needle drug injection site was set up so that addicts could fix up safely with clean needles and access rehab if they needed it. Also there was some 80 medically supported apartments created in both cities so that addicts could stay housed if they quit. Of course, the ones in Seattle were run by these hateful a-hole social workers who understood nothing about addiction at all; the job was just a stepping stone to better things for them. Relapses were allowed just so addicts stopped using again. Relapse prevention is an essential component of any serious outpatient efforts to support people after rehab. The budget cuts proposed by the rightwing nazis, eerrr republicans would cut all such outpatient public health support to those dying slowly on our streets. What was found in Vancouver BC was that 90% of needle drug users had been abused as children. plan on 7-10 relapses if a person has been seriously abused or has an intense violence exposure history. Interestingly enough, the most important factor in supporting addict/alcoholics in recovery, a diet appropriate to their body/mind type, has also been heavily cut into by the nazi budget cutters reducing, privatizing, and digitizing the food stamp program. This is another way the banks and the military contractors such as Lockheed pad their wallets at public expense.
–The budget cuts would cut even more support to individuals and families on food stamps and medicare/medicaid/social security. The number of children hungry in the US is growing rapidly as the republicans cut even more of the heart out of our infrastructure and small/medium scale business development efforts to create even more dependence on a few predatory, pathological corporations for employment and well being. Historically they have not been real good providers, if you know what I mean. This coupled with the privatization of education means that even more people will go without food, shelter, medical access/adequate care, transportation, and educational access for them to grow up a future with. Thus a soulish death is also facilitated because no one knows better than the one denied how much of the future they are really missing out on without education and adequate employment opportunities that pay a decent living wage. Part of the reason the central and south american countries degenerated into dictatorships was union busting and wage cutting to slave levels; no one could buy what the economic system had to sell, so their economies progressively collapsed further and further with the starvation, the poverty, and the killer drug revenue supported paramilitaries killing millions in the regions affected. The rightwing elites in charge literally made a killing. The corruption and attempted elimination of the US postal service by the nazis, eerrr republicans is instructive about how it is that any program they attempt to eliminate is first corrupted from within by cutbacks in service, and let me tell you right now, this would be another factor crippling Amerikkka’s forward socioeconomic motion into the future. Some people say that we as a nation have been going backwards more than forwards ever since the first of four stolen elections put nazis illegally into office; Reagan in 1980 courtesy of the Bush-engineered October Surprise. As vice president, Bush then went on to try and eliminate Reagan so he could be president.
–Taxpayer supported public housing for elderly/disabled people in Amerikkka is being systematically cut for these people as well as people who are unemployed due to systemic economic collapse as a consequence of nazi de-regulation and union-busting. One commentator even showed that Milton Friedman was precipitating a pre-meditated economic collapse by the policies he was supporting peddling his “Free Market” snake oil policy like a huckster selling bad cures in a turn of the century traveling medicine show. This policy had the direct impact of eliminating micro and small businesses and cooperative farms in Nicaragua when the “moderate” Chamorro was elected president there after the Sandinistas fell from power due to repeated private, killer drug revenue- supported US paramilitary attacks.
–The nazis, eerrr republicans pushed housing privatization in the 80’s/90’s putting a large number of people on the streets who were unable to take care of themselves. What happened to them? One person I knew who had Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome from a life spent drinking too much and couldn’t take care of herself at age 71 ended up dead on the street of pneumonia when a hospital refused to treat her and turned her out on the street to die. Another, a veteran possibly forced out, left a hospital drunk at 11:43 pm on a freezing night and froze to death by morning. He should have been allowed to stay overnight since it was so cold, but they didn’t keep him until he sobered up; they may have turned him out and he died. Now how’s that for cold-blooded? So much for the privatization of health care. And remember, these were all nice enfranchised white middle class social workers and nurses who did these kind of things to these voiceless vulnerable people over and over and over again. I had to discipline 15 social workers for abusing or denying services to homeless people in obvious overwhelming need and personal crisis to serious suicide risk. I would spend time with such at-risk homeless until I was sure they would not kill themselves that night. The uncaring attitudes that I encountered from enfranchised, employed middle class amerikkkan bureaucrats and others was awe-inspiringly horrifying to see. What is wrong with us that we as a people really wouldn’t care about each other in these situations of slowly increasing desperation and overwhelming need? What fundamental quality have we lost as a people? The proper humane compassionate response that is born of understanding the situations of death-dealing impoverishment that the homeless are forced to slowly die in all over Amerikkka due to elite economic theft/predation.
–High speed rail transportation is available all over Europe. Who stopped Obama and the democrats from even beginning it here? The rightwing kooks in congress again. The same ones who blocked levee construction that would have cut damage to New Orleans by 2/3rds and also left that I-35 freeway bridge unmaintained for ten years until it was finally overloaded during construction and collapsed. The republicans knew about the bridge and it’s needed repairs for ten years and never did them. Mass transportation is real all over Europe with really good service into neighborhoods and people needing supportive transportation. There is really no adequate levels of mass transportation in the US, with even urban mass transit cut to the bone; just the minimum for the commute to and from work, with shutdowns earlier and earlier in the evening, not much at night at all. Social engineering is very much alive and well, when one realized how well people are manipulated by the presence or absence of mass transit in an area. No poor people can really get to the meetings where policies are being set (that will most likely leave them home(less) without adequate food or shelter. Once again, just the minimum is done in the US. Even if you got a job in Portland, Oregon, you were going to have to walk to work to do it once you got it the bus system was that bad there.
–By allowing rule by corporation in the US political economy, a huge number of other saving local/regional economic and social possibilities fall by the wayside undeveloped. This negligence means that the US economy will still fail to support all of the people living in the country adequately, just as has always been the case historically for the country. This record of shame is not surprising though when you consider that the newcomers to this nation saw fit to kill off 16 million native americans in 500 years; the largest continuing mass murder committed by any nation in history and which is still going on too. The tools of this mass kill; slow starvation, disease, outright military attacks on resisting traditionals, forced marchs/relocation, (navaho new lands by episcopal church from big mountain arizona-1980’s), land and resource theft, livestock kills (illegal under international law), discriminatory incarceration and lynchings, attacks on religious gathering places (longhouse repressions and eliminations along with indigenous languages and beliefs), and the usual militarized mass slaughters. I found out also that before and during world war II, the japanese were also lynched, had their homes and farms burned, and some considered internment as necessary for their safety and survival. Gee, I wonder if they ever thought to imprison the abusers rather than the japanese? No, because the abusers were their nice, upstanding, respectable hard working (sure) white neighbors down the street. Actually, they just lie, cheat steal, scam, murder, kill, and destroy better than the poor, that’s all.
