Giant sucking sound part 6

Ross Perot’s pronouncement rings truer than ever. Canada and the US’ race to the manufacturing bottom continues faster than ever as a whole non union, recurring contact generation grows up knowing nothing about NAFTA,  job protection or working peoples rights.

Auto investment soared in Mexico last year and light vehicle production topped three million for the first time, underscoring Canada’s decline to junior-partner status in NAFTA when it comes to the auto industry.

If voting made a difference, it would be illegal

The voters who put Barack Obama in office expected some big changes. From the NSA’s warrantless wiretapping to Guantanamo Bay to the Patriot Act, candidate Obama was a defender of civil liberties and privacy, promising a dramatically different approach from his predecessor.

Permanently Temporary: The Truth About Temp Labor

The human resource industry is one level above human trafficking. We allow one and don’t allow another.

Super warehouses reside in the Inland Empire, a massive warehouse area 1 hour east of LA in CA,  It is the largest such area in the world. UPS, FEDEX, Walmart, Home Depot, Amazon all serve their (growing online) customers from here.

The workers are all paid minimum wage, non-union, and essentially work at Chinese-ified slave wages. Ironically, most are Mexican nationals (legal or illegal, I don’t know or don’t care either).

Interesting how (CIA sponsored?) Amazon is building a super warehouse in NJ to launch Amazon Fresh, as they move into same-day groceries.

This video really illustrates corporatism at its best. I don’t have a solution to it, but it’s a sad commentary on what happens when we go global and harmonize to the lowest common denominator.

It’s like starting a country all over again, and the only direction for a once mighty country like the USA is down.

Sochi scenes

 

If you can get past the anti-Russian propaganda (mostly about the false anti-homosexual stories), then you’ll see what $50 billion of Russian taxpayer money can buy. Even after all the graft, it can buy some amazing architecture and infrastructure.Behind The Scenes – The Olympics In Sochi - Interesting 6

Good Lorde

If only this were true.

Thankyou soo much everyone for making this song explode because this world is mental. Laughter. Planet Earth is run by psychopaths that hide behind slick marketing, ‘freedom’ propaganda and ‘economic growth’ rhetoric,[1] while they construct a global system of corporatized totalitarianism.

Getting around the lightbulb ban

Necessity is the mother of invention, er, renaming of an old product.

The most original invention since the electric light bulb! Although a heatball is technically very similar to a light bulb, it is a heater rather than a source of light.

12 Heatball Theses
  1. Heatball is the enlightened view of what is essential
  2. Heatball is the warmth that has not been recognised for decades
  3. Heatball is the reversal of disaffected thinking
  4. Heatball has become satire through the absurdity of reality
  5. Heatball is like Hamlet, who presents a mirror to his cynical stepfather
  6. Heatball is easy to understand and difficult to fight, and gets stronger through arbitrariness and harassment
  7. Heatball is an electrical resistance against the destruction of cultural goods
  8. Heatball is an image for the dilemma of culture to combine knowledge and emotions
  9. Heatball is an Art Action and connects the people of Europe with warmth
  10. Heatball is the artistic answer to a product of politics
  11. Heatball is unbureaucratic help for the rain forest from people
  12. for humanity

  13. Heatball is free from mercury, independent from lobbyists,and a symbol of free mind

The great gluten-free scam

Science is sponsored by big business. Is it any wonder when science promotes a fiction or invented fact that its benefactor can profit from the “facts”?

Shooting at this conspiracy is easier than hitting fish in a barrel.

Once, pasta and bread were store cupboard staples. Now, many of us are replacing them with ‘healthier’ gluten-free foods. But are they really better for us?
