Ferguson Perspective

Now Tubularsock noticed that many Oakland businesses were bringing down the plywood off the store front windows downtown. A bit optimistic from Tubularsock’s point of view.

Tubularsock has viewed and participated in many protests of different types dating back to the ’60’s and if Tube was going to create a protest, well ……. there are very easy ways to close down any city with just a handful of people. Yet, to date the organizers seem not to think outside the box.

And Tubularsock’s tactics do not include direct violence or direct confrontation with police. Nor does it include property damage. But the end result …….. bedlam!

So enough strategic logistics for now.

Tubularsock is safe in his top floor corner office in his underground bunker overlooking Washington, D.C. from Oakland, CA and wants to discuss some Ferguson shit.

First and for-most EVERYONE knew the outcome of the Grand Jury decision on the day they were called to start to deliberate. In THIS society the only way this decision would have been different would have been perhaps if the cop had been black and the kid had been white.

But lets look at the built in biases in the system ………….

Now the Grand Jury for the Ferguson incident was comprised of nine whites and three blacks. Of that there was one black man and two black women on the panel, and six white men and three white women.

Now for the St Louis County area this breakdown fits the demographics. But for Ferguson the black population is significantly larger.

But more importantly at least nine votes were required to indict Wilson. Interesting, 9 whites, 3 blacks funny how that worked out.

A Grand Jury meets in secret, a standard practice for such proceedings. And the District  Attorney presents the “facts” of the case and directs who will be called as witnesses and all other matters.

A District Attorney really can get anybody indicted for anything, because there’s no representative for the defense in the proceedings and the jury hears only the state’s evidence.

As Glenn Jones, an attorney with the Athens branch of the Ohio Public Defender’s office puts it, “It’s shooting fish in a barrel”. And Former New York state Chief Judge Sol Wachtler famously remarked that a prosecutor could persuade a grand jury to “indict a ham sandwich.”

But what happens if the District Attorney DOESN’T want an indictment?

Bob McCulloch is pro-cop. His mother, brother, uncle, and cousin all worked for the St Louis police department and if that isn’t enough to question his ability to present a fair case to the Grand Jury then the fact that McCulloch’s police officer father was killed in the line of duty by a black man should give one pause.

McCulloch has called “irrelevant,” his fathers death affecting his decision making process in the Brown case.

But if you take into consideration that Bob McCulloch was 12 years old when his father was shot and killed by a black man ………… well, ask a psychiatrist or psychologist about an impact of such a violent, shocking experience on a 12 year old.

Irrelevant, bull shit!

TUBE MOLOTOV

But if you look at the judicial system as a whole you’ll find that Grand Juries overwhelmingly indict cases brought in front of them. Unless they deal with questionable police misconduct and then as a whole you’ll find that it is incredibly rare for a Grand Jury to indict a police officer.

A Grand Jury of “good citizens” tend to trust the police and even when the “facts” show possible guilt they will disregard the evidence because of their bias toward police.

When you add a jury’s bias into a situation like Ferguson where McCulloch’s background leans toward the police and thereby causes him to not really present a compelling case against Officer Wilson, whether consciously or unconsciously then the outcome is clear before the process even begins.

Justice was not served and don’t expect it to get any better except when enough white people get kicked around and wake up to the police state mentality that has allowed Blacks and Latinos to be fucked over because nobody’s looking!

But it will have to affect wealthier whites because poor whites aren’t worth shit either.

And what if ……… it is all a false flag operation? The old colonial tactic of divide and conquer.

If the “underclasses” woke up to the fact that they have more in common with each other than differences then some butt could start to be kicked! But without enlightened common organization the division between people will continue to be exploited.

Oh but first everyone has to get up off their big fat American asses and go to the streets!

Maybe tomorrow ……………  there’s a rerun of Father Knows Best on the TV and then a frozen pizza. Bon appetit!

Knightscope bots

 

 

Tubularsock was sitting reading the German press and ran across this story. The interesting thing is that Tubularsock’s top floor corner office overlooking Washington D.C. from Oakland, CA is a stones throw from Mountain View as the crow flies.

And it took the Germans to fill Tubularsock in on a local story.

A few side notes. Mountain View is a traffic infested dumpy little town south of San Francisco and for the life of Tubularsock where a view of a “mountain” comes into the picture is beyond me!

Yes, the coast range moves along the coast but “mountain” is an exaggeration to say the least.

That being said Knightscope has in reality created seven K5 robots and four of them have already been ordered for use at a technology company.

A K5 is about as tall as a person and is designed to “act friendly and threatening at the same time”. Kind of like your mother-in-law on Thanksgiving!

These little guys are packed with cameras, microphones, weather sensors, navigation equipment and electric motors which allows a K5 to slide on rollers across the floor or parking lot and evaluate it’s surroundings and they are programmed to detect “abnormal behavior”, sure …….. No, these aren’t the droids you’re looking for …..

According to the U.S. Census there are about a million people that work in sentry type jobs in security companies. K5 can do this type of work for less than half the cost of a living person. Their battery lasts for 24 hours and is programed to go to the charging station when low. Recharge time takes 15 minutes. Hey! Every worker needs a break!

And that is exactly why Tubularsock came up with the idea of unionizing them. That, and the fact that a K5 isn’t armed yet. So to organize them is still safe for Tubularsock. But of course drones weren’t armed when they started out either ……… the possibilities are unlimited!

Just a matter of time …….. and as long as the Grand Jury is filled with BOTS there won’t be any indictment against a K5 either!

OIL: SLIP SLIDING AWAY!

Have you noticed that gas prices are down? Wonder why? Did you also notice in this last election cycle that that wasn’t even mentioned by the Democrats as an indicator of how well the Party’s President was doing? Wonder why?

And the biggest surprise is the gas prices came down EVEN WITHOUT the XL pipeline being approved! So much for that stupid argument which was stupid only because the shit oil being pumped out of Canada is for export only and has NOTHING to do with oil prices within the United States.

So what gives America?

Tube gas pump

Now Tubularsock put on his oily rubber boots with the American flag embossed on each boot and stepped right into the middle of the ooze. And here is what was discovered.

Never say Tubularsock is not willing to ooze the extra mile for your knowledge ………

You see in early November Saudi Arabia lowered its oil price per barrel.

Wow. What a nice surprise. And just in time for Christmas too.

You know how those Moslems love Christians.

Now some say that the Saudis did this because by lowering the world oil prices it would fuck up the Assad Government in Syria and put pressure on Iran as well.

And some say that the Saudis are trying to put pressure on North Dakota and it’s shale oil costs. That reasoning goes like this; the cost of extracting shale oil is expensive as opposed to just pumping it out of the ground in the Saudi’s established oil fields.

Driving the oil price down may force some smaller oil shale producers to slow production because they can’t recoup costs when oil on the commodity market hits below $80 a barrel.

And then some say that the Saudis lowered the price of crude to fuck up Putin and the Ukraine mess. Russia helps to balance its budget by selling oil. If the price goes down it puts the pressure on the Russian economy and the U.S. imposed sanctions put a bigger squeeze on the Russians.

Now the Saudis say that their influence is not as powerful as it once was and the world supply and demand has caused this dip in crude oil prices.

So Saudi Arabia dumping oil into the market is to just to get a competitive edge. Hmmm.

Just after Crimea voted to rejoin Russia Obummer happened to just drop in on Riyadh. You know, like gosh I was just in the neighborhood and thought we’d have a meeting.

“Leonid Fedun, a co-owner of the private oil firm Lukoil, cited President Barack Obama’s visit to Riyadh in March. “Obama travelled to meet the king of Saudi Arabia just after the Crimea events to push him to these actions (to lower the oil price),” Fedun, whose firm has large U.S. assets, said last month.” (Reuters)

New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman, wrote last month, “Is it just my imagination or is there a global oil war underway pitting the United States and Saudi Arabia on one side against Russia and Iran on the other?”

Tubularsock wouldn’t be surprised. Of course it must be just another one of those conspiracy theories.

In September U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry made a trip to Saudi Arabia because he was just passing through town. “When asked if his discussions had touched on Russia’s need for oil above $100 to balance its budget, he smiled and said: “They (Saudis) are very, very well aware of their ability to have an impact on global oil prices.”(Reuters)

But for Tubularsock the most logical explanation, the one that seems most reasonable is that Saudi Arabia has DECLARED WAR on North Dakota!

And the question which remains is are we as Americans going to just sit back and let this happen OR do we do what we do best …….. send in HUMANITARIAN TROOPS and bomb and drone and destroy North Dakota in order to save democracy!

The answer is really up to YOU America!

Oh well, there may be another thing for Americans to take a look at. Just maybe the price of gasoline can be manipulated by ahhh ……. somebody.

Usually the price of gas goes up and up and up when there is trouble in the Middle East but since there is no trouble in the Middle East the price of gasoline has gone down.

Funny how that works.

Now that the dust has cleared ……….

Bull shit. There wasn’t any dust. One of the parties won over another party for control of Congress but the assholes that still go to Congress to recess themselves from doing anything like make decisions about ahh, what in the fuck do they make decisions about anyway? Oh yeah, Thanksgiving and Christmas recess.

But rest assured they’ll be back in force sometime after the first of the new year ……..

They pontificate a lot …….. actually it’s their way of farting. Seriously, Tubularsock is just pointing this out to you so the next time you see Mitch or Harry, John, Rand and Diane open up their mouths to the nightly news cameras think FART. It will make much more sense to you.

It’s their contribution to natural gas. And because it’s on TV you don’t have to smell it!

Ass compare

Now the real fun has already began. The XL pipeline. A long time ago Tubularsock prophesied that Obummer would pass that damn pipe into existence and here it comes.

Oh sure he could veto it but they will tie the bill in with, oh I don’t know, the money needed to save the Middle East and oh gosh his back will be up against the wall.

Like sure it will be.

And we’ll hear the agony of the pen scratching his signature across the bill and the seven feet left to complete that ecological disaster will be completed.

And that will be the last you’ll hear of it until the first 15 million barrels leak into the waterways of America. And we’ll hear from Congress and a new President how just NO ONE could have thought that this tragedy could have ever happened from a pipe!

You know the drill. Then we will hear how the government will put “the full force” of our National Governmental Disaster Preparedness into action.

Then the complete failure of that idea …………

And then Congress will take it upon themselves to call a committee, oops ……… multiple committees on what went wrong and how we can prevent it happening again until the next time!

You know one of the biggest, saddest things for Tubularsock on September 11, 2001 is that ……. if only a full session of Congress would had been in session and the Shanksville Plane United flight 93 had crashed into the Capitol Building rather than a field in Pennsylvania.

To this day Tubularsock resents the false-flag planners for fucking that up!

Oh well. Tubularsock has been disappointed before.

All we have to get excited about now is 2016 when Hillary and Jeb go toe to toe for the big prize. Hey, it will go to Hillary. That’s the deal already made. You’ll see.

But there will be a dark horse candidate in that race and Tubularsock has the inside information but can’t release it at this time ………..
