above is the short story. Barack Obama smooching Charles Koch, who
with his brother, David, very much wants American taxpayers to pay
for the XL Keystone pipeline, which will save them money and the
trouble of redesigning their present refineries, deep in the heart of
Texas. The Koch refinery is configured to take heavy crude,
available only from Venezuela and Canada.
with the distasteful issue of going hat in hand to Hugo Chavez, and
paying $100 (£64) a barrel, the oil the Kochs need is available far
more thriftily from Canada, selling at around $67 (£42) a barrel.
Even billionaires take thrift into consideration. Getting Americans,
now struggling to feed their families, to pay doubtless stuck them as
a much better idea.
say the Brothers Koch are not consistent. I coined the name,
'Greedville,' to ID them and their many co-conspirators. Together,
they have been bilking America for years and have now formed a
coalition with President Obama to Rebilk America using ideas which

hearts of an American. Privatization has grown our prisons into
factories intended only to produce money through incarceration, many
of these for crimes which are, arguably, not crimes at all, harming
no one. The same “public – private” cooperation, also known as
fascism, is steadily encroaching on every part of our lives and,
sadly, can be credited directly to a Libertarian.

his model trains.

The cake, which are the direct largess to be handed out to the
Kochtapus and friends, and the frosting of promises, including
“quality day-care,” which was to sugar-coat the impending flow of
funds to Greedville with promises for programs which, if precedent is
to be believed, are in reality intended to put ordinary Americans
under tighter control and provide earlier access to children for

Every proposal has the same unchanging outcome, increasing corporate

Karl Rove. Perhaps Karl loaned it to him.

The Declaration of
Independence affirms the rights of all people to life, liberty, and
to the Constitution says
People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union,
establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the
common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings
of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish
this Constitution for the United States of America.”
One of the first steps to
securing the blessings of liberty and ensuring justice hinges on an
electoral system which we can trust, the very thing Karl Rove has
worked so hard to extinguish, with the help of the people named
above, and many, many more like him.
First, we need to dump the

control of balloting to the most local level, voting on paper
ballots, tallying transparently and openly at the precinct and then
publishing the results.
To return power to the
people we need to move the nexus of control closer to home.

This must be corrected. Doing so must take place through local
organizing, original shoe-leather activism, which brings us together
past the divisions politics has imposed.
Local organizing will also
allow us to pass ordinances banning the use of drones, along with
other essential measures for returning control to the people. Strong
communities, concern for those around us, and individual initiative,
made America a shining light on the horizon for people around the
world once. We have it in our power to begin the world over again.
The choice is each of ours make.

See you there, and then in
your home town.
