Nixon

Firstly, this is the best website I have stumbled across since BBC.co.uk. Second, Nixon was a bigger cunt than even I thought.

Like, I'm still freaking out about those touch screen things they're using to elect unelectable Tories in America, (over there they call them Republicans) and are coming over here. We need to do something about that shit before it is TOO LATE...

But maybe it is. Because if someting like this exists (like we didn't know, but having is spelled out is pretty chilling), then we might as well all kill ourselves.

I don't mean that. I live in hope. But read that, and then wonder what it was that Nixon was planning. That the Cheney Gang is... and why didn't Bill Clinton do something about it?

Because yellow

Stupid questions get stupid answers.

Anyway, this FEMA... I was talking with my friend Jeremy the other night about the LA riots. Another, Jeff, told me he saw the beggining of those tapes, and said King was, like, totally spazzing out on those coppers. Which lead me to wonder, for the first time - why would the swine in charge show something on TV that would obviously lead to huge civil unrest?

Leading to the answer: they wanted the riot. If you think, around then poor slash black people in America were getting politicized again. Public Enemy are the biggest band in the country. Etc.

But then I read about this FEMA. And it all starts to make sense.

"On July 5, 1987, the Miami Herald published reports on FEMA's new goals. The goal was to suspend the Constitution in the event of a national crisis, such as nuclear war, violent and widespread internal dissent, or national opposition to a U.S. military invasion abroad. Lt. Col. North was the architect. National Security Directive Number 52 issued in August 1982, pertains to the "Use of National Guard Troops to Quell Disturbances."

So they can do that stuff. (Channel hopping in New York last week, I was shocked to see that Oliver North has a talk show, by the way)

FEMA has been "stood by ready for emergency" three times, as far as we know. April 1984, under Regan, who signed of on the engagement of a "readiness exercise", REX84, that would involve taking into custody an estimated 400,000 undocumented Central American immigrants, to be taken to 10 detention centers at military bases throughout the US.

Also.

"REX84 also advocated the rounding up and transfer to "assembly centers or relocation camps" of a least 21 million American Negroes in the event of massive rioting or disorder"

Ah.

FEMA 2: Under George Bush in 1990 when Desert Storm was enacted.

FEMA 3: "The third scenario for FEMA came with the Los Angeles riots after the Rodney King brutality verdict. Had the rioting spread to other cities, FEMA would have been empowered to step in. As it was, major rioting only occurred in the Los Angeles area, thus preventing a pretext for a FEMA response."

So there you go. The question is, will they, anticipating losing the forthcoming election, Bomb The Fuck Out Of A Bit Of America?

The answer is, probably.

Oh, and that shit also answers the Big Question I've had echoing about my brain for a while - why did they introduce crack to the ghetto?
