The Culture of Oops

By Alberto Pupo

The Oops culture., more often than not in American society, tragic or vile events are labeled as mistakes. Bad policy decisions are apologized for. Certain events and rushing into useless wars are called “lapses in intelligence”. It seems that in order to explain away deliberately reprehensible actions, these actions are instead labeled as mistakes and blamed on incompetence. However in a Nation were civic and military leadership are ooopsendowed with education and certifications how is it that vile policies and actions are always incompetence? Are we really that incompetent as a Nation? Or are these actions simply Machiavellian machinations to obscure evil actions and escape any form of accountability?

 

The oops culture is a very conservative notion. For example 9/11, the straightforward explanation was to explain away everything as an intelligence mistake”. We see this theme ongoing throughout most of the War of Terror. Lack of wmd’s, Continue reading

Thank You Congress!

By Alberto Pupo

Dear Congress,

 

Thank you for gracing us with your presence. We the people feel honored that you have served us well and delved into a very difficult two week period of attempting the process of legislating us into a brighter future. We are grateful to have have diligent public servants who are in no way obstruction will in the process of governance.

The work you accomplished these past two weeks has been amazing In fact it has been so amazing that it seems that after an almost 8 week summer vacation our legislative body had not missed a beat During this two week period rather than dealing with issues of inequality, environment, or Continue reading

The Grand Corporate Blame Game!

By Alberto Pupo

Point the finger at everyone and anything. Corporate America has a tendency to pass the buck. In the corporate world view, they are always blameless for any of the woes that they create. Corporations never admit when they have wronged us in any way shape or form. So who are ultimately the scapegoats who are the usual suspects for which Corporations place blame on for their failures?

 Government- the hand that feeds, and kills. To a corporation while government subsidizes, it also is an enemy. Taxes, regulations, rules, laws, etc, all inconvenient truths about having to do business in America. Corporate America often likes to blame paltry salaries and expensive goods and services, on government taxation. Even though Finger-pointing-225x300corporations pay next to nothing in taxes. Even though corporations engage in offshore tax avoidance and some even get refunds. Corporate America uses taxation as a smokescreen to justify raising costs and cutting payrolls. Whenever corporations are engaged in price gouging consumers, they simply declare it to be a natural reaction to sill and burdensome regulations like having to protect the environment for example. Corporations feel that even though they make a grand use of the global commons that maintaining them is not really much of their problem., because of this the “big bad guvmint” needs to lay off and let them run wild, otherwise the price of the silly environmental cleanups will have to be foisted upon the consumer.

 

The Employee- They are the lifeblood that keeps the beast running. If not for people giving up precious hours of their lives and family time for Continue reading

Corporate Lies!

 

By Alberto Pupo

The people are weary of Corporate lies. The people are weary of overly privileged (mostly white men) individuals hiding behind the law and committing crimes against humanity, animals, and the environment. Corporations need to be done away with. The whole notion of hiding behind a fictional legal creation with zero accountability is not  ethically and morally wrong. Whatever happened to a person or group of people owning a business but bigstock_fingers_crossed_mono_20810846being held accountable for their practices and impact upon our society? Whatever happened to people being able to identify and build an actual  relationship with those who provide goods or services to them? We must move away from this era of zero accountability and corporate crime and learn how to progress as a people.

Corporations are nothing more than vehicles for crime. Most fraudulent activity is either done by a corporation or someone associated with a corporation.  Corporations have an ill conceived Continue reading

A Corporate Spring

By Alberto Pupo

American Spring? A grass -roots movement to fight the tyranny of government? Once again the Tea Party desperate to save and preserve their lie, was trying to get together a mass protest movement in their continued efforts to create a Corporate Spring! The enemy of freedom is obviously government, and the Tea Party is trying to encourage rebellion at any given moment. Yet what is the ultimate agenda of this “freedom loving welfaregroup”. So you take down a government and replace it with what? What is the purpose of this Corporate Spring.

Government is the enemy of the people. This is the message the Tea Party has been touting since a black man took office. During the Bush Continue reading

Corporations Are Not People!

Corporations are not People!

Corporations do not starve, and Corporations do not bleed.Corporations were

created with one goal in mind and that is simply to deceive.Corporations control I_refuse_to_believe_corporations_are_people

the fabric of our lives they control our senses. To break the grip of the Corporate

world all we need is believe.. That humanity can overcome base emotions and social greed.

Greed is part of the problem in our society. The wealthy attain their wealth by hook or by crook and instead of allowing others to achieve what they have achieved they work their entire lives in making sure the Continue reading

Everything is Awesome?

By Alberto Pupo

“Everything is awesome”. The catchy tune fills the ears of children and adults alike taking them into a a whole new level of sensory overload. The eyes and ears are treated to a visual feast and whimsical nostalgia for the yesteryear as childhood icons for millennial parents come to life in sarcastic grandeur. The Lego movie is indeed a visual everythingisawesome-legomovie-lonelyisland-teganandsara-585x327feat for all ages, but taking a deeper look into the candy coated frenzy one will find that there is more than meets the eye. We are presented with philosophical and ideological questions that run deep beneath the surface and highlights what is wrong not just with American society but the whole Capitalist Global Movement.

A Move to the Center?

 

By Alberto Pupo

The return of moderate politics? A gooey center moving away from extremism?. The recent elections were said by many pundits to be a referendum on the Tea Party. Ken Cucinelli, narrowly loses Virginia and moderate Christie wins in New Jersey. Has America tired of extremism? The era of compromise making a return? Or is this nothing more than wishful thinking?

The Tea Party Revolt of 2010 has provided us with a new platform for Fascism. Koch driven billionaires aided by the Citizens united decision have been pouring tons of money into electoral contests in a vain attempt to take over the Continue reading

Arrest The Tea Party!

 
 

 
By Alberto Pupo

Arrest The Tea Party! Since their emergence on the scene the modus operandi has been clear. Destroy the Government at all costs! This movement is the reason that the Nation’s Government has been shutdown for 11 days and counting! They are the reason why Government has fallen into a ridiculous deadlock and Congress has been absolutely putrid. The Tea Party has been the destruction rational governance. This Movement of Anti Intellectualism bankrolled by Shadowy Billionaires simply smacks of Nazi Germany. The Tea Party is a threat to our Nation, the Tea Party is a threat to Democracy and something needs to be done before the damage that they cause is irreparable…

Since the Tea Party tsunami of 2010 (full of incoherent slogans and lots of Neo Patriotic Continue reading

More Supreme Court Treason!

 
 

 
By Alberto Pupo

The Supreme Court continues to show its disregard for the American people. In between the Decisions about Gay Rights and Voting Rights, the Supreme Court in another wildly partisan 5-4 decision sneaked another whopper past the American people. This time it deals with the health of the Nation. The Robed Traitors once again in the tradition of the Roberts Court side with Corporations over people. In the case of Mutual Pharmaceutical Co. v. Bartlett, the Roberts Court once again shows just how deep its love for Corporations goes. This time in creating yet another layer of trouble for plaintiffs who are damaged by the side effects of generic drugs (which account for a large portion off “legal drugs used by Americans). Once again somewhere in Texas George W. Bush is smiling as his legacy and gift continue to Continue reading
