Man jailed for 33 months for pirating ‘Fast & Furious’

Universal Picture’s fuzzy math comes into the equation when estimating how much they allegedly “lost,” or in the real world, never had in the first place. 

I certainly wouldn’t watch FF6 if I had to pay anything for it. They might need to pay me, and I have a Paypal account, if the studio is interested in sweetening the deal. I have the feeling that many who watched it weren’t going to pay them anything either. Fast and Furious 6? Are you shitting me?

I thought Five was masterpiece enough…

 

 

California Prisons

 

More failed policies turning America into a bankrupt police state…

 

 

 

US-school-martinet

 

High School in the police state resembles prison more every day.  Here students are treated as sheep after a fellow student has committed suicide, and the school refuses to grant a moment of silence to the students.

The prancing martinet principal orders a boy arrested for daring to interrupt his speech.  Why are these fascist clowns allowed to bully the nation’s children?   We have become a nation of prison guards and drones who take orders from incompetent meat heads.

Leave your Constitutional rights at the prison gate.

 

Today in school us students made a protest for a kid that committed suicide. The school refused to give a moment of silence over the announcements or even mention his name. We asked several times over the course of two days and still nothing was said about the kid. The bald buy says “I’m disappointed” and a kid in the crowd replies “We are disappointed in you too” This kid later gets arrested. Completely ridiculous.

With all the crocodile tears finally drying, let’s get real about where the US stands vis a vis third world people’s movements.

Chicago Tribune:

“We have turned Mandela over to the South African security branch. We gave them every detail, what he would be wearing, the time of day, just where he would be. They have picked him up. It is one of our greatest coups.“ -CIA Officer Paul Eckel

And guess what, America?  Dr. King had more than a dream too, and elements of the US government killed him because of it.  They also succeeded in erasing his legacy of opposing the war and fighting for equality and economic justice, so that your kids hear a tiny fraction of what the man actually stood for.

A second drug war film is soon to release:

How-To-Make-Money-Selling-Drugs-movie

Interview with one of the filmmakers:

“There is no War on Drugs if they’re legal. If you have to demonize drugs and their users in order to justify a war against them, it’s just …. If you talk to people, they fear talking honestly about the subject. Public figures fear speaking about the injustices of the War on Drugs. It just goes to show the wholehearted brainwashing that’s occurred because of the War on Drugs propaganda machine.

Guantanamo

The US gulag at Guantanamo Bay Cuba is now waiting for a large portion of its illegally-detained prisoners to kill themselves.

Guantanamo’s military defense lawyers cite My Lai massacre in plea to Hagel 

Military lawyers for former CIA captives held at Guantánamo are appealing to Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel to intervene in what they describe as deteriorating conditions and leadership failures on a scale similar to the Vietnam War’s My Lai Massacre. Hagel is a Vietnam combat veteran. The military lawyers call death among the detainees “imminent … whether by suicide, starvation, organ failure or associated complications. (source)”

The detained prisoners have arrived at Guantanamo through questionable means, such as through bribes to warlords (themselves much more powerful terrorists than the taxi drivers and sheepherders they sold to bounty hunters), in order to produce bodies, sold to the US like slaves.   Others arrived as prisoners of the war in Afghanistan whose only so-called “crimes” were defending their homeland against an illegal US/NATO invasion, under the Nuremberg statutes.  Prisoners of war are entitled to legal protections, while Guantanamo “detainees” and “enemy combatants” (a fictional term created for this purpose) are denied all rights, and live at the whim of the office of the President.

This mass suicide option fits seamlessly in with Obama’s drone murder response to the roster of US “enemies” around the world.  Prison and laws are less convenient than the outright killing or “disposal” of alleged enemies as they appear.
