Mass Immigration to the U.S.: What It's All About

"The push for mass immigration from 'developing' countries has nothing to do with solving world poverty. It would be an odd way to do it: I know - let's move all the poor people to American suburbs! According to the World Bank, 2.4 billion people - about a third of the earth's population - live on less than two dollars a day. Until the world economy reaches perfect equilibrium and there is no reason for anyone to move from one country to another, billions of desperate people will want to come to America. We can't take them all, so which billion of the starving masses are liberals going to exclude? Will it involve death panels? Are liberals going to trample on the rights of Bangladeshis? They're dying of cholera! Is it their brown skin liberals don't like? Sorry, liberals, but your white picket fence sense of America and fear of 'Furriners' can't hold back the 2.4 billion in this worldwide humanitarian crisis.

"Our current immigration law's preference for destitute people from backward cultures (peasants - ed.) is merely a convenience for the 1 percent. The elites will be gung-ho for a (border) fence just as soon as every college graduate - at least from one of the better schools - can afford a maid, a nanny, a chef, and a gardener. At that point, the elite will stop pretending to care about the world's poor. America will be Brazil, with a well-pampered, itty-bitty upper class, amid an ocean of poor people.

"Half a century of (Edward) Kennedy's immigration law already has us all on our way to becoming a nation of Have-Everythings and Have-Nothings. Fabulously wealthy towns like Malibu, California; Atherton, California; Woodside, California; Greenwich, Connecticut; New York's Upper East Side; and Palm Beach, Florida, are lily-white - and getting whiter! But in the rest of the country, once-white towns are going majority Hispanic like dominoes: Van Nuys, California; San Bernardino, California; Oxnard, California; Shelbyville, Kentucky; Danbury, Connecticut; Monroe, North Carolina; and Siler City, North Carolina - home of The Andy Griffith Show's 'Aunt Bee.' It's a sweet deal the elites have: They get to have cheap nannies and lawn boys in the whitest towns in America - and feel morally superior at the same time! What's not to like about that?

"Immigration isn't about rescuing the 2.4 billion people of the world living on less than two dollars a day. It's about enriching the already rich, who like to laugh at blue-collar people being ground down by cheap labor. It's about Carlos Slim, Zoe Baird, Kimba Wood, Mark Zuckerberg, and Sheldon Adelson getting richer. It's about the gilded class being able to afford a battery of servants. It's about ethnic activists increasing their power and media desirability. It's about Democrats winning a permanent political majority. And it's about Republican officeholders pleasing their well-heeled donors and clinging to power, at least for a few more years. What use does New Jersey Governor Chris Christie have for an out-of-work roofer when Mark Zuckerberg wants to be his friend? The only people not benefiting from immigration are ordinary Americans. But who cares about them?"

Iran and Humanity vs. the Master Race of Chosen People

The performance of fading imperial power becomes more dangerous with each new crisis it faces, whether real, imagined or the logical outcome of its weakening intellectual and moral foundation which threatens the material structure we call civilization. Even while Greece is being treated with the near economic savagery previously reserved for developing and non-european countries, the attempted step into reality in recognizing Iran’s importance in the world, especially its dominant role in the middle east, is accompanied by enough hypocritical gall and bloody arrogance to make ISIS look very reasonable by comparison.

Having suffered brutal western assault since their Islamic revolution of 1979 which discarded a minority government of European toadies for a more homegrown majority representation of its people, Iran has finally forced the USA, though not its seemingly conjoined-by-dollars twin Israel, to face at least a small part of reality. But this tiny recognition of what most of the world, especially many people in the middle east, already knows is accompanied by a tremendous amount of backlash-to-logic.

The bellowing of both the Israeli leadership and its Knesset Caucus in the USA continues treating Iran as some major threat to humanity and especially settler innocents in a colony of supremacists from Europe who’ve established a homeland in the middle of a Semitic world. But that’s okay because god said it was really theirs, a thousand or two thousand years ago or so. And even if many of those euros are atheists who say they don’t believe in god. Business is business and real estate is a big business, especially when the realtor is a deity.

The appalling arrogance necessary for the only nation to have invented and used nuclear weapons to stand over another and make sure it doesn’t create such a maniacal arsenal is enough to make hyenas and jackals barf as they perform nature’s dictates in eating the dead. But this is on a par with the settler chorus singing hosannas to peace and democracy while it bludgeons Palestinians into bloody colonial victims while its own collection of nuclear death dealing remains secret to all as long as they believe in the easter bunny and the tooth fairy.

The master race is indeed threatened by any rising independent power against its dominance in a world it considers its private market, especially the oil mall in the Middle East. Adherents to The Chosen psycho politics swear that Iran, as eventually the entire world, is intent on genocidal extermination of the Jewish nation. That last has been an ongoing program since biblical times, at least according to a minority interpretation, which could lead one to wonder how there are any people left who call themselves jewish. Given the reality of a near extermination of native people in what became the USA, and with no scriptural or historic evidence of any such plan beyond bloody racist colonial conquest, it may be miraculous that there are still descendants of native people here, though somehow, there are more Jews in the USA than Indians. And that’s without an Indian narrative of a euro-gentile-islamic-jewish conspiracy to annihilate them. Hmmm.

Material reality be damned, the American multi-cultural master race, even as it performs homicidal attacks on its own, is aligned with the never without existential threat chosen nation of Israel, even as it performs daily horror on palestinians in proving its godliness – even to its atheists –in screeching loud and clear the awful threat to humanity posed by Iran.

The most heavily armed nation that spends more money on weapons than any other and maintains foreign military bases in hundreds of countries should be feared, but it is not Iran. Except for those believers in the Easter Bunny and Tooth Fairy, it is the USA. And the most heavily armed military power in the Middle East, including nuclear weapons, is not Iran. Except for believers in the world being created in six days and the 911 conspiracy beginning on the seventh. Yet, this fanatic mindset with no substance in reality and as sensible as what provoked the racist murderer in South Carolina or the race supremacists in Tel Aviv would have it that Iran is a menace that must be contained. And who better to do the containing than the most belligerent, feared and hated countries in the world, asserted so by polling and arrived at by common sense and experience?

Those who espouse these political-economic-religious views do not try to hide the madness between their ears by wearing propeller beanies on their heads, so they are not identifiable simply by sight. They look just like us, even if they exercise infinitely more power than we have as long we allow them to reign under the guise of democracy. But if that up to now fictional theory doesn’t soon become practical reality, the idiocy that is bringing all of us closer to breakdown will not involve an idiot with a gun opening fire in a theater or a church, but maniacs with missiles, drones and nuclear weapons destroying more of the earth and its people than they have ever done before. Iran, like the rest of the world, deserves our respect as a nation and a people. As long as we allow ourselves to be led by disrespectful supremacists, we’ll have only ourselves to blame if or when the worst happens. We should take action before that dreadful day arrives.

Bulletin: Escaped Mexican Drug Lord Enters Primary

Chapo Guzman, the escaped Mexican drug lord, has entered the Republican primary . He is running on a platform of civil rights for thousands of Mexicans here who are illegal, and as representative of tens of thousands of anglo  stoners, potheads, coke fiends and heroin addicts who deserve representation but will never get it under a "gringo dominated puritan regime".

Guzman says he truly understands the plight of illegals, having broken every drug law in Mexico and the USA  thousands of times. " Companeros, brothers, sisters, junkies, support me and you will bring yourselves and this nation to a new high."

When asked why he entered the Republican and not the Democratic primary, Guzman said  since there were so many candidates ( 18 so far counting Guzman) who would split the vote  a true minority candidate like him would have a better chance to win. The Supreme Court will have to rule on whether he is eligible to be president of the USA but if they rule against him he threatens to marry his brother, adopt a blonde transexual american, buy a dog and a cat and claim  discrimination against a Mexican ex-con gay married couple pet family simply trying to live the American immigrant dream.

A Close-Up of Pluto’s Heart


The first high-resolution close-ups of Pluto’s surface traveled three billion miles to arrive on Earth this morning. 

Shockingly, they revealed anti-semitic grafitti, swastikas, confederate flags and pornographic art from the Vatican collection scattered all over the landscape. 

The Southern Poverty Law Center has offered to conduct an in depth study of what this means for the future of life on earth and the SPLC's fund raising. 

"This confirms our suspicions that hateful bigotry and bigoted hatefulness  pre-date their establishment on earth but should no less continue to cause great fear on our planet's people and lead to greater collections of funds for our work."

Republicans Announce Coolidge, Hoover, Taft, Reagan to run in 2016!

The Republican party responded to criticism over its numerous candidates inviting late night, early morning and mid-day comedy performers a bonanza by announcing the posthumous candidacies of four more.

Calvin Coolidge, Herbert Hoover, Robert Taft and Ronald Reagan will be entered in the campaign and participate in debates via recordings, readings, videos and seances . 

"Their policies and philosophies still are what makes this the grand old party the intellectual leader of America's mentally disabled millions who are victims of too much tv, social media, drugs, alcohol, junk food and mainstream bipartisan politics, so why not honor their memory and remind this great nation of just why this great people are as great as we have become following the leadership of these great leaders for this great nation?" said an anonymous latino-gay-african american- christian-zionist white-female spokesperson for the Republican National Committee of Greatness in a Nation.

An anonymous Democratic Party gender fluid, multi cultural, immigrant born of surrogate parents,wall street-welfare collecting bi-partisan veteran of numerous wars waged by this great nation said " this great nation and this great party welcomes the participation of these great candidates and is considering running Franklin Roosevelt and John Kennedy in our primaries to further the knowledge that we are a great nation of great people who can be lead by dead leaders as well as living because the policies are the same in this great nation." 

Is this a great nation or what?

Greece? No, It’s All Of Us

Greece is under a global microscope focused on it by the same forces that have put it in the laboratory: the regime of international financial dominators, which has been conducting policies of neo-liberal austerity for the past generation in every country under its control.

Whatever label is chosen for this latest brand in the capitalist dominated market, a nation of just over 11 million people has become a test case in returning to an older, pre social democratic fundamentalist form and removing social restraints on the alleged magic of the market which, as wiser money mongers understand, creates misery and possible revolution if left uncontrolled.

Under corporate mind management, the prevailing story fed populations has been the typical one of welfare chiselers at the bottom freeloading on working people whose taxes support their profligate life styles of unemployment, imprisonment, hunger, homelessness and other aspects of such mind managed idiocy. Greece is said to be sponging on thriving economic citadels like Germany and France, home to hard working populations while the indolent Greeks sit around cafes and enjoy lives of leisure. In America, this tale is told in the same way to workers and retirees under major stress from an expanding billionaire creditor class as they themselves dwindle in number and fall into greater debt all the while being taught to blame those even worse off than they are for being the cause of their problems.

Looking down on those with less is the political program of the neoliberal austerity perversion faith, its preachers, ministers, rabbis, priests and other immaterialists. Looking above to a class of incredible wealth is not on the agenda, especially when that wealth owns and operates the political system which encompasses the government supposedly running things democratically, and the media supposedly reporting on matters in an unbiased and objective way. Of course.

But something is happening in Greece, has long been happening in South America and should soon be happening here in the USA and it is shaking up the program of more wealth for some, greater debt for all and poverty for more than ever before. The nation that according to history, legend, myth and conveniently excluded slavery, supposedly birthed the concept-conceit of democracy has begun to actually practice it. This has caused panic in power circles and led to even more cruel stupidity in their reaction.

An old lesson learned in working class ghettos where loan sharks were the moneylenders had it that they were to be feared only up to a certain point. If you owed the loan shark a thousand dollars, that represented a real problem for you. But if you owed the loan shark twenty thousand dollars that represented a real problem for him. The IMF and others of the financial euro-mob currently threatening Greece with further and more savage punishment if it does not pay its debts have either not learned, forgotten, or are just too stupid to understand that in forcing people into debt in order to profit from the interest they collect on those loans, they also run risks if the loans are not paid, cannot be paid, or the debtor refuses to pay. Of course, muscle by the loan shark can follow if the debt is small enough, and total war, by nations. But when the debt is not only international but beyond billions for Greece and into the trillions globally and shakes the foundation of a desired capitalist union of nations in Europe, muscle is severely limited. Unless the loan shark is a maniacal idiot with too many weapons and too little brainpower to understand that his power over the neighborhood is gone, no matter how much homicidal damage he may inflict.

The creditor-predator class is reacting to signs of rebellion in ways to cause more rebellion, but also instill more fear that they will unleash violence, even if accidental or just plain stupid, of a nature beyond anything of the past and even if it wont be enough to save their system it could be enough to destroy that of humanity.

The voice of democracy remains to be acknowledged though it spoke loudly in Greece when a decisive majority told the international banking community, in effect, to get screwed. The people have suffered enough. Though the vindictive polices inflicted on the Greek people have been vicious, it’s important to remember that they are nothing new, have been going on for a long time – some would say for five hundred years though in more current language vagueness-pollution only “decades” – and have caused human misery in third world and developing countries long before attracting attention in the current phase of a dying order trying to sustain itself by dumping more misery and deprivation on its own.

The staggering debts forced upon formerly colonial nations in order to prop up their capitalist-owned economies were borne by most of the people in the neo-colonial world. They caused pain, starvation and wars barely noticed and even less understood by western populations. But that same policy of cutting government programs that saw to at least a minimum of social services, in order to pay the banks in the USA and its cronies in Europe has been practiced in the western world itself during the more recent phase of a collapsing financial order of private anti-democratic capital, an order which threatens to collapse on humanity’s head if global populations don’t take faster steps to impede the process of destruction and transform it into one of progress.

Finance capital, though global in essence is still individually anarchic in practice and fundamentally incapable of thinking in anyway but for personal private profit at loss to the alien “other” – humanity. This is the problem faced not only by Greece and Europe but by the entire population of the planet.

A corrupt mob of thugs can run a neighborhood, a city and even a country, but it becomes more difficult when nation states still exist to try and fake a global government. The near farce of a U.N. is a case in point, though attempts to democratize that organization of dominating minorities are among hopeful signs for the future. But the market, no matter how monopolistic and massive various corporate entities become, still operates on the religious belief of competition and the material reality of private profit as motivation for anything and everything that gets into that market. Cooperation is a sin and the work of satanic forces according to the capitalist deity, and through its control of mass consciousness it teaches and breeds such warped belief, possible through the material reality of progress always available to some while others suffer.

Slavery, feudalism and other dead systems also had thriving populations and great numbers who lived quite well, thank you. But when the number of thrivers began to decline and the profiteer’s bankbooks got fatter even as their numbers dwindled, those systems were near their ends. Such is the situation today as riches expand to an ever smaller population while the working class – graduated to the middle during social democracy – reverts to sinking into debt and is still losing ground while poverty increases. This is true in the USA, Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, North and South America. Globalization, also according to the economic rules of capital in place at least since the industrial age, means the faster destruction of the natural environment by continuing to treat it as no more or less than a commodity to be used for profit making.

The evidence grows more clear everyday, but that billionaire class and its lucratively paid servants still control not only governments and media but military forces capable of inflicting even more horror than they are guilty of historically and at the present moment in slaughters in the middle east and elsewhere. And their banks and other glorified loan sharks far surpass the fictional shylock who demanded a pound of flesh from his debtor. They have been devoutly gorging themselves on the bone marrow of the third world for more than a generation and are at present and despite alleged racist superiority, draining the blood from their own people while they suck the planet dry of its marrow and other fluids in pursuit of profit at earth’s loss.

Humanity has been evolving for more than two hundred thousand years, experienced the alleged “new” world of 500 years ago, the emerging third world of yesterday, and is now dealing with the Euro zone and Greece today. What will tomorrow bring? If we truly want many more tomorrows we need to get much closer to the beginning of global democracy and the end of a system that threatens to destroy much more than one nation’s political economy if it isn’t stopped.

Flags: Powerful Fabric

"Flags are bits of colored cloth that governments use first to shrink-wrap people's minds and then as ceremonial shrouds to bury the dead." Arundati Roy

The photo of a racist murderer alongside a confederate flag reignited the long smoldering emotional fire this symbol creates in America. While there are many who may be innocent of it being other than a sign of rebellion against imposed authority, the rebellion it originally stood for was that of the alleged right of some humans to own other humans as slaves. Still, there may be a few who harbor no racism in their souls in owning or waving that flag but who are mentally “shrink wrapped” for some other reason, while many more are hurt, angered and infuriated that this particular symbol remained, until this murder, a revered piece of cloth not only in parts of the american south but among football fans all over the country and others no more politically or racially minded than the average american on an average day; which is not politically or racially minded at all, if not politically or racially unconscious.

But it may be that state of unconsciousness that is strengthened even by well meaning desire to rid ourselves of a symbol causing pain to many, without doing much to stop inflicting real material pain while concentrating so strongly on a colored fabric said to represent it in a form of religious symbolism, like marching to war behind a cross, mezuzah or other faith symbol.

The writer quoted at the top was speaking of the general use of flags and not any specific banner, whether waved proudly, in anger, with hate or love. What's important is the manipulative nature of the symbol and the fact that it can be used to move people emotionally because it has no meaning in material life other than being a fabric with stripes, figures or words on it. In a sense, some bloody tyrant’s filthy underwear could be painted in the colors of some nation, group or cult and draw a salute from those members previously taught to hate that tyrant. But oh, that symbol is so strong and powerful. And ultimately, meaningless except as a weapon to, as Arundati Roy says, shrink-wrap minds and later bury bodies.

No better example of the contradictory nature of flags may exist than recent debates in governing bodies in the USA, especially congress, where often sincere and emotional speeches were made by people who insist that the confederate flag must go since it is a sign of hatred and worse. But many of these same elected officials, distraught over this symbol and anxious to align themselves with others on the right side of the issue regarding a particular flag at a particular moment, regularly allocate billions for war, corporate wealth, Israel and more, without a thought for the human suffering caused to those under the murderous onslaught of the military economic dreadnaught whose funds they not only assure, but support often with the same passion they summon while they stand bravely against the confederate flag.

Makes you wonder?

Race, Marriage and Reforms in Marketing Life

Systems under stress create reforms both to relieve social tension among groups that would be democratic majorities if not reduced to behaving as minorities, and maintain social control for real minorities behaving as democratic majorities through domination of markets and control of consciousness.

These reforms create relief and in many cases happiness for those receiving their benefits but they also leave gaps among the majorities so reduced that can create later, greater tensions. These can lead to multiple across the board positive reforms - social revolution - or in the worst case, total breakdowns in political economic life and not just among one or another alienated social group.

It’s hard to predict ultimate outcomes of any reforms except to say that many will benefit from them but many others, and usually most, will not. This is especially true in a market society controlled by profiting minorities, which theoretically work to the benefit of the great majority in the capitalist process of accruing private profits, investing them, and thereby creating jobs. They do this the way disease ultimately benefits the medical business and war ultimately benefits the military business, all in the process of accruing private profits, investing them and creating jobs. See? Same system.

This one step forward and more than one step back march of progressive reform (?) has brought better lives to hundreds of millions in the developed capitalist world but it has done so only by bringing misery, deprivation, suffering and death to greater numbers in the lesser developed as well as its own world. Much of western oriented and controlled humanity is unaware and at worst unconcerned at this reality but more are learning it every day as social structures seemingly out of control threaten all human life support systems, even those among the most mechanically and technologically developed populations.

In fact, mechanistic and technological “progress” under market controls of private forces, is at the root of humanity’s present problems of colonial wars and environmental breakdowns. But moves are being made towards change of a radical nature to bring about majority human control over the production of life and its sustenance, while reactionary forces work harder than ever to impede that process. Both forces working simultaneously can make it even more difficult to understand what reform might ultimately be good for the human race and what might not be so positive in the long run though it will certainly make some people very happy and improve their lives in the short term.

When slavers in the confederacy moved some of their free labor force into the house with them, this reform, brought about by their biologically creating children with their slaves and denying paternity but having to give them slightly better lives simply because they were their secret parents, created a relatively upscale life for those slaves. They became “house negroes” sometimes disdainful of those in the field and even forgetting – until rudely reminded by a field Negro – that they were still slaves even if living in the master’s house. That later to become class of a “Black Bourgeoisie” (Frazier) of educated and professional leaders of Black America also contained some who never forgot their origins and used their knowledge and degree of access to organize slave rebellions which played a role still not generally acknowledged in bringing about the ultimate end of slavery.

This reform made by slavers under duress, as are more modern reforms even if often under less obvious pressure, brought about real progress in the material lives of African Americans of the time. At least, that minority who benefitted from this early “affirmative action” program. But in the longer historic view, we in the 21st century are still imbedded in the economics and culture of racism which is hardly early American slavery or its offspring in 20th century apartheid but still finds human beings, whether dubbed African-American, people of color, or other terms to verbally deny the reality of simply being human, living in communities of poverty, in prison in greater numbers than ever before and regularly suffering brutality and murder at the hands of police departments performing as colonial armies in their communities.

There is a genuine African-American in the White House – his father was actually African while most wearing that label have been americans for generations before others who are no longer forced to adopt hyphenated labels - and a host of descendants and new members of the “Black Bourgeoisie” in positions of political and economic power. But that has made no difference at all in the lives of unarmed black men shot down in the streets or the tens of thousands locked up in prisons or the thousands more consigned to communities of low income and disintegrating social services, when those services exist at all. This is the most obvious and blatant example of reforms which indeed helped and help many – and rest assured Beyonce or Denzel Washington or Lebron James or Michele Obama will not be shot dead by police while running away after being stopped for not having a headlight or some other poor people’s infraction – while doing absolutely nothing to improve life for many more and making it much worse for many, many more.

The radical – going to the root of the problem - social changes needed in historically divisive race relations are of a revolutionary nature affecting all of society rather than simple reforms, which only affect some. And that is true of any reforms which benefit some but always at the expense of others, and usually those least capable of bearing the expense.

Our most recent reform legalizing same sex marriage was indeed a happy moment for americans dedicated to equal rights and especially so for the minority previously denied state sanctioned and acknowledged love bondings. This, like many reforms, was brought about by a Supreme Court which, it must be understood, represents the law of this system of cost-benefit-profit-loss analysis over and above any ideals of morality and values of humanity, though we are buried in textual scriptural service to the ideals while having to read between the lines to find the often hidden or disguised in rhetoric profit and loss statement in any decision of a court majority.

The same court which voted to sanction same sex relations in marriage also voted, during the same session, to make capital punishment easier and not to penalize the fossil fuel industries considered by a majority of the scientific community to be endangering the future of the entire human race. That singular and only race is composed of all skin tones, heteros, homos, trannies, and undecideds. All humanity. Splitting hairs over which individual court member voted correctly or incorrectly on which issues misses the point. The court voted for a cost-benefit analysis that favors capital, the profit motive and the future of the system it represents. And among other things, that system has created a market in surrogate parenting previously limited to heterosexual parents and now expanded further to homosexual parents. Face it citizens: buying and selling fossil fuels, life, and drugs to end life are good for business. Legally, of course. The Supremes said so.

There is no question that countless numbers will benefit from this court ruling, though a substantial minority of americans have still been left behind by changes in what seems acceptable marketplace morality, given that changing morality that does not harm the profit margin but indeed helps it is deemed beneficial by the high court of capital. Just as beneficiaries of what was called the New Deal that supposedly ended the Great Depression did very well with a host of reforms initiated by the revered FDR administration while tens of millions died in a bloody war and lesser millions in the USA were completely left out of any of those programs, so this one will benefit some at cost to others. Anything new here?

One thing is very new: the expanded market in surrogate life, with purchase of sperm or ovum all but becoming boutiques at the mall as a once science fiction fantasy becomes increasing reality to make some happy with new life, others happy with new profit lines, and still others puzzled by who one of their anonymous parents might be.

All too often left out of a debate about whether homosexual love should be sanctioned by the state is the important aspect of life creation which is only possible in relations between woman and man, whether they are married, in love, simply having an affair, or worse. While some hateful bigots may never be brought around, sincere religious folk claim godly guidance about what love is supposed to be according to one or another holy book, forgetting that same sex love has probably been a fact of life as long as life has been a fact. But the result of same sex lovemaking, however passionate, sincere or not, cannot be new life. Not to worry.

The market has already seen to the happiness of many hetero couples who, rather than adopt children needing homes and loving families, opt to go the turkey baster – petri dish route and purchase opposite sex anonymous participation in creating the much blessed miracle of life. Never mind if the results of those miracles never know who mom or dad was. Oh? Of course many such people, the result of surrogate parenting, are happy, their parents are happy, and perhaps even the surrogates they do not know are happy. But just as likely is the fact of curiosity, at best, and terrible sadness, at worst, for those among us who wonder at who our parents really are. Or were.

Stories of adopted people who sometimes obsess in trying to find their biological parent or parents, even when blessed with adoptive parents they love, are far too numerous to be disregarded. What about those of us who know and love our two dads or moms but have no idea who our biological real mom or dad was? Do such humans count as anything more than proud possessions purchased and loved but not needing any idea of their parenting beyond one half of the “miracle of life” team? And what of the surrogate women, if not men, who sell or give up their egg or seed? Whether for money or not, how do they feel knowing that a daughter or son is out there somewhere? How many women were previously forced, by religion, parents, sincere morality or painful backwardness, to give up babies for adoption and wonder for the rest of their lives at what, where, who that child might be?

Of course the market place has a legal division for surrogate parenting – we are a nation of laws – and some of these problems, if they come up, can be resolved the American way. Hire a lawyer, go to court. And in the usual fashion, be sure you have enough money and social stature to purchase enough justice to come out with a happy decision.

There was a case back in the eighties which attracted some media attention in which a woman who sold her offspring thought about it and tried to regain her child, but she was no match for the purchaser parents. They were professional class, she was not, and her case was lost. What kind of low life would sell her own capacity to birth a child? Duh? The kind that would buy one? There probably have been many others since as the number of surrogate children has greatly increased and will now see another jump in population.

In fact, a more recent case had dissatisfied parents, both fair haired and fair skinned women, who wound up with a darling little girl sperm bank purchase neither fair haired or fair skinned. Lawsuit, of course, but possibly not a million laughs for them and certainly not for that child. How many more have there been? Will there be? At some point we need to think beyond the simple part of acknowledging love between consenting adults and ponder the results for the race of creating new life this way.

Long ago, Huxley wrote in Brave New World about babies being born in veritable factories where low level drones and high level bosses could be created via test tubes. He was being critical and hardly thinking of love but he may not have imagined that loving humans could get closer to such a reality.

 Want a child? Send us your essence along with a tidy fee – plastic accepted – and yours will be delivered to your home.

Has it come to that? Rest assured, this reform will bring happiness and joy to many loving humans and their offspring. But it will also create misery for some people, and greater questions for what we are as a race. The misery will not just be experienced by bigots or well-meaning religious people with honest morality problems about birth. The suffering community will be among those brought into the world this way who are left to wonder, as we all should at this reform in the marriage market.

New App Protects Hate Speech, Bullying, Death Threats

New App Protects Hate Speech, Bullying, Death Threats

Eleven year old trillionaire web wizard announces revolutionary
free speech tool, “App Yours”, enabling anonymous mayhem to make PC Police crazy.

“Teenagers will be free to bully at will, charging other teens with being ugly, having the worst breath and smelling like stale ashtrays filled with burger juice” said the genius. “Celebrities, political figures and their families can be issued death threats, all minorities can be trashed and there is no chance of prosecution since “App Yours”  (pat.pending) is totally anonymous, paid for with bit coins registered on another planetary system.”

Orders for “App Yours” are being taken at an anonymous online source which had received thirty million requests before this site was the first to reveal its existence.

Supreme Court Does Extensive Cost-Benefit Analysis
Historic Free Market-Private Profit Rulings Find Same Sex Marriage and Fossil Fuel Legal Since Benefits Exceed Costs

Court also rules in favor of capital punishment, meaning that same sex married couples who are invested in fossil fuel stocks and commit murder can be executed. Equal Rights communities rejoice, then collectively vomit.
