We Are The World, Part II
reprint from www.backupamerica.org
As the mainstream media and Hollywood musicians gear up for another fundraiser for the relief efforts in Haiti with the release now of a recycled "We Are The World" video that was featured during the opening ceremony of the Olympics, there are some that have been heavily involved in questioning once again the official stories with respect to the catastrophy in Haiti last month that, in my opinion, bear a little scrutiny.
Especially with the announcement by the Obama Administration that the United States once again is poised to build another nuclear reactor this time in Georgia (and I hope this one, after being funded - or billed to the deficit - by the American taxpayers isn't again privatized and shares sold on the global stock exchange once again affording foreign ownership of another nuclear reactor in this country) all the while condemning Iran's continued uranium enrichment programs which that country's leadership continues to defend as merely a way for it to also go "nuclear" for its power and energy needs.
I guess I don't really understand politics at all, at this point, since it would appear that since the U.S. has continued to enrich uranium for its power and energy needs, especially with this new announcement, is it not hypocritical then to condemn other nations since we were, after all, the first to go "nuclear" for our power and energy needs to begin with?
Iran's uranium enrichment program may be a threat to the government and people of Israel in that it MAY be used for ulterior motives, but since they also have gone nuclear and have their own stockpile of nuclear weaponry, this debate continues to puzzle not simply me at this point.
Part of the development of nuclear reactors and uranium enrichment also involves nuclear testing and many of such tests have been conducted throughout the world since the discovery of nuclear fission.
The tests are conducted below ground, of course, thus affecting the plates that compose the Earth's subterranean core, as it were, and thus any and all nuclear testing which is done also has the potential of disrupting and shifting some of those plates.
It has also been interesting the involvement of the Hollywood community once again for what occurred in Haiti, and the reports of the deaths which have occurred have varied according to which mainstream media reporting agency is doing the reporting, of course.
With the amount of Americans now homeless and jobless, especially in the West and Southwest, I find the involvement of the Hollywood community on behalf of this effort rather surprising, given that there are as many homeless in our country as have been impacted in Haiti.
If each of those recording artists that donated their time for the "We Are The World" Part II session simply donated 10% of their earnings alone, Haiti could be reconstructed by the end of 2010, I'm sure.
Especially since it was a great many of the banks chartered in the State of California and their shifty lending practices in basing even some of those loans on the British currency, rather than U.S. prime that has resulted in some of their fellow Californians and American citizens in the other western states most affected, now standing in those bread lines.
Perhaps getting out of the studio a little more often and looking around, they might decide eventually to do a "We Are The Country" video, you think?
Since the unemployment rate and joblessness in this country is now approaching that of the Great Depression, from all economic indicators. I mean asking the disappearing middle class to kick in their mortgage, grocery or utility payment for Haiti is a little much given what is occurring in this country at this time.
The increases now also in violent personal and property crimes and loss of lives staggering, and increasing also by the year since there are many truly desperate people out there who have truly lost everything they had and their homes and not due to "nature" or malfeasance in nuclear testing, but greed of the U.S. government and its banksters, whether foreign or domestic.
And why are all those agencies that are involved simply requesting cash, instead of blankets, water and food to aid these victims ala Katrina, when it is now well known that a great deal of the relief monies sent by the American people to help with that relief effort never went to the victims at all, but those individuals and agencies now using disasters, natural or otherwise, as economic stimulators of their own?
