Maybe the Chinese Government Isn't Evil. NOT!!!

Reading the recent Newsday AP posting "Chinese Show Off Repentant Falun Gong" , I almost get the impression that the AP writer Audra Ang is giving too much of a benefit of the doubt to the Chinese Government and the ruling, heavy-handed, and most evil Communist Party.

It's as though the fact that this one person who decided to denounce the harmless spritual and yoga philosophy Falun Gong just to save himself from further brutal and sadistic torture, somehow shows that maybe the Communists have some justification in their despicable behavior towards its followers and supporters.

They have none, nada, zip!

Maybe appeasers of dictators will excuse their rampant sexual abuse and gang rapings of Falun Gong women.

Maybe foolish lovers of communism will be understanding of the psychiatric abuse, and the horrific forced feeding operations performed on Hunger Strikers.

Possibly some sick and idiotic followers of the simpleton Karl Marx will condone the brutal and often fatal beatings, people being forced to stand naked outside in the snow for hours, or being kept for months in cramped, lightless, water-dungeons with near freezing temperatures filled with sewage and dead rats and snakes.

It's all OK if it's in the interest of protecting communism, right?

Sure, it's quite acceptable to beat children, and burn people with cigarettes and irons.

Therefore it must also be quite alright to tie people down to tables and torture them for hours with multiple electric cattle prods.

You can get some frequently asked questions about this grave injustice that has balooned "Since the former leader of China, Jiang Zemin, began the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners in 1999: 100 million people practiced Falun Gong in 1998, but lost that right when Jiang banned it in 1999. ",
answered here.

This insecure, insanely jealous freak Zemin finally totally retired from official government in September of 2004, but due to the cult of personality, the honor bestowed upon former leaders laws and general Communist paranoia, the madness continues. Hopefully China will not have to wait for Zemin to pass to see if it finally stops.

Thankfully, there is a growing global effort toward bringing justice to these abused and peaceful yoga lovers.

China has more evils than just its oppression of Falun Gong. The Unrepresented Nations and Peoples Organization (UNPO) provides an Amnesty International briefing on endless human rights abuses in China as "UK Foreign Secretary Jack Straw prepares to visit".

At least deep down, the Chinese Government seems to feel that what they're doing is wrong. That's because they won't admit to any of the grossly inhumane abuses (you may be able to see some videos here) they've promulgated and continue to sanction.

They don't admit to any atrocities, they typically tell the families of those who've died while in captivity that their loved ones committed suicide or caught a deadly case of the flu.

They don't want the rest of the world to know, they KNOW what they are doing is wrong.
This recent headline from VOA News illustrates this: "China Arrests 11 Falun Gong Members for Posting Torture Photos on Internet"

So what can we do? Well, we can all talk this up as much as possible, tell everyone we know what is happening. Send people the link to this posting, send them the links you see here, or ones you find elsewhere. If you pass some Falun Gong on the street handing out pamphlets or their newspapers, take'm, read'm, and pass'm on. Word spreads, spread the word!

We can also let our Senators and Representatives know that we know, and that we're pissed the U.S. Guv and the White House isn't doing more chastising of China.

You can find forms and email addresses to your elected rascals here, here, here and here.

Since the U.S will never be stupid enough to invade China, Senator John Kerry will probably never get the chance to vocally defend the Chinese Communist dictatorship, like he did with the North Vietnamese. You can apparently email this phony-baloney here.

If people can get the good Senator really peed off about this, he may get very vocal about it, and then the media will of course jump all over it.

This is what communism can lead to folks, brutal hysteria over something which is feared by the leaders to be a threat to their official line of BS. Communism does not work, and can never work. People can only be forced to live under such a flawed system, but man's individualities, his differing dreams and appetities, and his motivations will chafe against this artificial system towards the more natural free-market models.

By the way, George Mason University has a pretty informative little Museum of Communism which is very interesting and quick to visit.

In fact, since Falun Gong was probably a way for China's people to better put up with all the crap foisted on them by the Communist system; trying to destroy Falun Gong may actually hasten the eventual demise of the communist lie.

Hope springs eternal.

Go get'm fellow LBPDs!

Is Anybody Really Surprised the Saudis Got Off?

I'm disappointed, but I'm not surprised that some Federal court dismissed the 9/11 lawsuits against the slippery, two-faced Saudi government today.

Just because Bin Laden hates the Saudi Royals as well as hating us, doesn't mean that the Saudi Ruling Princes are anywhere near totally on our side.

Their brand of Islam wants everyone else to join them and obey their ways, or DIE!.

But not really "join" them. According to an old friend of this LBPD who's lived there for years, the Princes and their buddies break all sorts of "rules" of Islam, including like drinking the best single malts, smoking the best herb and hashish, and importing large harems of some of the most exquisite global "call girls" petrodollars can buy. It's a party!

Jim Hightower explains the good old Saudi Royalty pretty well here:

"Not a few of them wallow in conspicuous consumption, which includes drinking, gambling, consorting with prostitutes, and other violations of strict Islamic law that the nation's 22 million ordinary citizens would have their hands chopped off for violating."

Yes folks!

But we WILL continue to kiss their asses nonetheless. No matter whose party has their dude (or dudett) in the White House.

This battle is just beginning...


Did He Say " _ _ _ _ing" or "_ _ ing"?

My favorite blogger babe, Michele Malkin, and others, are probably rightfully in a snit over the hard rocker Brett Scallions of Fuel "who told the young concertgoers at the Inaugural Youth Hoedown: "WELCOME to the GREATEST -- ing Country in THE WORLD!!!"

Well, did he say "----ing" or "eFing"? There's a difference. "eF this!" or "eF that!" is just NOT the same as saying the whole big bad word, as much as peoples' dirty minds and expectations want to make it so.

Just like NFLer Randy Moss didn't really "moon" anybody.

It's a shame but, implied, disguised, and coded obscenities are NOT the same as outright obscenities.

So, if your kid asks: "Daddy, what's 'eFing' mean?" or "Mommy, what's 'BLANKing" mean?" Just tell them that it's nothing, just an adult trying to be efing(very) clever.

ALSO, what are the profligate, yet still cheap Republican party planners doing cramming pre-teens in with young adults, and putting teenager Hillary Duff on the same venue with hard rock band Fuel? What were they thinking might happen? (Just like what did CBS think might happen when they had MTV do the half-time of last years Super Bowl.)

They must have thought: "It'll be SO cute!" having all the little tweens jumping and cheering and screaming their love for Dubya.

No, they couldn't just have an extra party for the little kids. That's too easy. CHEAP!

Well, according to MTV, they have it as Scallions saying "----ing", so I guess since none of the articles mentioned that he actually only said "EFing!", I guess he was very, very naughty.

Too bad this wasn't broadcast, then the FCC would be faced with the prospect of having to go
after the Republican Party for being culpable.

Let The Oil-For Food Chips Fall...

Yey! Finally someone has plead guilty to charges filed by the USA's DOJ in the ever-developing UN Oil-For-Food Scandal, by far the biggest financial scam in this planet's history.

Hopefully "Samir A. Vincent, 64, a naturalized U.S. citizen from Annandale, Va" will be the first of many earthlings from around the globe to be skewered for their dirty dealings in helping to prop-up, fund, support and defend the Butcher of Baghdad and his despicable school girl-raping sons.

It's only right that the first dirt-ball to be squeezed should be an American who's already in this country, as opposed to some Fronchman who's safe in Fronce for example.

Vincent is facing up to 28 years safe behind bars. Let's hope his plea deal doesn't cut more than half of that off for cooperating with the Feds in naming names and such.

America's most likely new Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice claims she'll get tough on this UN garbage. Time will tell, we can only hope.

Of course, we will keep hearing about the UN stalling and stonewalling, and praising the enabling efforts of the formerly esteemed retiree Paul Volker.

May the bloodletting begin...

What A Planet!

What a neighborhood! What a town! What a country! What a planet!

We've got it all folks: life and death, beauty and ugliness, happiness and sadness, construction and destruction, black and white, pink and grey, hot and cold, cruelty and compassion, genius and stupidity; of course everything in between, and a hell of a lot more!

So, now that I've finally started this thing, what should I write about first?
