The Other One Percent Not NSDU-238 & OCCUPY
There are imperatives to “materialistic-Nationalism” that serve as empiricism, as that is non-innocuous, both what Tink Tinker an indigenous-Amer: professor, and amiable-speaker @ recent Occupy Denver—what I call little-D—who speaks in overture of altruism about Truths. Also there is Prof Michel Chossoudovsky, who correlates about how the “staggering-costs” of the F-35 are succinctly, those fecund devaluations of culture and digressive-Tactics of so-called “austerity-Spending” i.e. privatization of water, education, banks ‘n foreclosures, etc. The wars remain innocuous because the indige-Amers are progressing in not-so-disparaging strides of confidence—and we do not relent w them too!
Tink has a grasp of history coupled w indige humaneness from being that the 1% forbidden “talk” is innocuous why would indige-Amers walk that walk. Give me a break, his manner is steadfast and soooo is Prof Michel Choussudovsky, a Canadian w an immense respect for truth. The cause of “human-Rights” is the cause of indige-Amers. The past history of militarism pasted atop the backs of colonialism as though labor was morosely worthy of those w no time to think is a disposition of teevee-Land. Mass media is not for thinkers is a backwash of “I can’t read, therefore don’t teach me”! “R”

Description of event
In the words of renowned American Indian scholar Tink Tinker, who is leading this teach-in: “I hope to discuss the contemporary economic repercussions of american colonial / corporate power on Indian communities across the continent. Thus, I will highlight the intense poverty of Indian communities in spite of resource rich lands that should make us the wealthiest Americans. Instead, we have an unemployment rate that is stuck at about 50%. But it’s recession proof….”

NA.T.O. impractically closed-down Chicago past 5-days and probably, the next two—at least. The discussion of wars-Illegal has not counter-Posited the non-discussion of N.A.T.O.’S impugning in Afghanistan, Albania, LKosovo and last year in Libya. Not one use of the word “peAce” soooo war-Mongering is first on shelf of buy your own “wars or speak truths. We shall continue OWS, by continuing to speak-out the methods of tyranny, the madness of Plutocracy! The F-35 is the elites symbol of the on-going usury of space does not belong to the we-People. Many Quebec University students would laud having some time to read at least these two disclosures—use of computers, lest say, continue when that happens.
Peace, a good word to hold onto, a dear word for facility of democracy w.o. Plutocracy, and is generally, more IMportant [now that Occupy dept of OFFense @ www.nukiemole.org can solicit w website] should be back-on in 18 days. Peace in the mean time is not Drones bombing weddings in Afghanistan nor Waziristan, nor Pakistan. Drones and NSDU-238 do not mix. Mind you, peace mixes best w other-Peace i.e. like protecting the planet from comet or asteroid “direct-Hits” or by dropping a million tons concrete and soda on four reactors of Daiichis… “R”
“The protest movement against the economic austerity measures must be integrated be with the antiwar movement.
The abolition of war –including the closing down of the weapons industry– is a precondition for scrapping the neoliberal economic agenda. War and Globalization are intimately related.
University students in Quebec have recently been involved in mass demonstrations regarding the hike of tuition fees implemented by the provincial government. Yet at no time has the issue of military spending and its impact on social programs been raised.
The purchase of advanced weapons systems will inevitably be at the expense of federal provincial transfers which contribute to the financing of health and education.
Curtailing the F-35 stealth fighter program would immediately make more money available in support of Quebec’s university students. In fact the cost associated with one F-35 fighter plane (461 million dollars) would release more than enough resources to finance the hike in tuition fees for years to come.
The protest movement against government austerity measures applied in the US, Canada and the European Union must address the issue of the US-NATO led war.”
