Super Callous Fascist Racist Extra Braggadocious

Mary Poppins meets Donald Trump, in this song with lyrics by Austin folksinger Steve Brooks. Thanks to Andy Corwin for producing the video, and Internet satirist Randy Rainbow for the title.

If you’re Mexican or Muslim,
You’ll pray for his defeat.
But he might be up your alley
If you’re into wearing sheets.
Ladies, you will find him
The most sensitive of males.
He’ll help you find employment
With his buddy, Roger Ailes.

He’s Super Callous Fascist Racist Extra Braggadocious.
Every word escapes his lips is something quite atrocious.
Could it be Tourette’s or simply verbal halitosis?
Super Callous Fascist Racist Extra Braggadocious.

Trump did a little diddle. Trump did a lie.
Trump did a little diddle. Trump did a lie.

He never met a dictator
He didn’t seem to like.
They’re giving him ideas
For the rise of the Fourth Reich.
He’s tweeting Mussolini,
He’s singing Putin’s tune.
He’s jealous of the people skills
Of Comrade Kim Jong-Un.

He’s Super Callous Fascist Racist Extra Braggadocious.
Psychiatrists are arguing about his diagnosis.
Paranoid Delusional or Borderline Psychosis?
Super Callous Fascist Racist Extra Braggadocious.

Trump did a little diddle. Trump did a lie.
Trump did a little diddle. Trump did a lie.
Trump did a little diddle. Trump did a lie.
Trump did a little diddle. Trump did a lie.

He’s got a snarky nickname
For each and every foe.
“Lyin’ Ted” and “Crooked Hillary” –
I guess he oughta know.
But perhaps I should be kinder.
It seems a bit unfair
To judge a man until you’ve walked
A mile in his hair.

He’s Super Callous Fascist Racist Extra Braggadocious
American democracy has got a dim prognosis.
It’s either on bad acid or a case of mass hypnosis.
Super Callous Fascist Racist Extra Braggadocious.
His finger on the button hands the world back to the roaches…
Super Callous Fascist Racist Extra Braggadocious!

Facebook: Fuck You and Your Arbitrary Censorship

Satire of Viagra ad censored by FacebookIn a closed Facebook group focused on humor, I posted a satirical Viagra ad with a couple dancing, while the female dancer is holding on to the guy’s appendage. Well FACEBOOK just deleted it for violating their community standards and blocked me from posting for 24 hours. Even though the warning said things that depict nudity of a satirical nature are ALLOWED. It’s not even a photo, it’s a drawing.

Facebook gives no chance to refute. Just instant sentencing. A friend agrees, “It’s ridiculous! They installed some auto recognition software and it’s so stupid. Welcome to 1984.” Fuck you, Facebook. Your capricious and arbitrary censorship has its consequences. Be likewise warned. This billion dollar social networking company can disintegrate and crumble just as fast as it rose.

Big U.S. Corporations hold $2.1 trillion overseas to avoid taxes

Major U.S. Companies Are Stashing Billions Overseas To Avoid T…If corporations actually paid their taxes, we would have free college and no national debt

The 500 largest American companies hold more than $2.1 trillion in accumulated profits offshore to avoid U.S. taxes and would collectively owe an estimated $620 billion in U.S. taxes if they repatriated the funds, according to a study released on Tuesday.

The study, by two left-leaning non-profit groups, found that nearly three-quarters of the firms on the Fortune 500 list of biggest American companies by gross revenue operate tax haven subsidiaries in countries like Bermuda, Ireland, Luxembourg and the Netherlands.

Citizens for Tax Justice and the U.S. Public Interest Research Group Education Fund used the companies’ own financial filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission to reach their conclusions.

Technology firm Apple was holding $181.1 billion offshore, more than any other U.S. company, and would owe an estimated $59.2 billion in U.S. taxes if it tried to bring the money back to the United States from its three overseas tax havens, the study said.

The conglomerate General Electric has booked $119 billion offshore in 18 tax havens, software firm Microsoft is holding $108.3 billion in five tax haven subsidiaries and drug company Pfizer is holding $74 billion in 151 subsidiaries, the study said.

“At least 358 companies, nearly 72 percent of the Fortune 500, operate subsidiaries in tax haven jurisdictions as of the end of 2014,” the study said. “All told these 358 companies maintain at least 7,622 tax haven subsidiaries.”

Fortune 500 companies hold more than $2.1 trillion in accumulated profits offshore to avoid taxes, with just 30 of the firms accounting for $1.4 trillion of that amount, or 65 percent, the study found.

Fifty-seven of the companies disclosed that they would expect to pay a combined $184.4 billion in additional U.S. taxes if their profits were not held offshore. Their filings indicated they were paying about 6 percent in taxes overseas, compared to a 35 percent U.S. corporate tax rate, it said.

“Congress can and should take strong action to prevent corporations from using offshore tax havens, which in turn would restore basic fairness to the tax system, reduce the deficit and improve the functioning of markets,” the study concluded.

Mc Graw-Hill’s Revisionist History

This is yet another attempt by a textbook publisher to obfuscate the harshness of reality, or at worst it is institutionalized revisionist history. Referring to kidnapped Africans, brought here in chains and sold like farm animals to work in fields and on plantations as slave labor, as “workers” offensively diminishes the incalculable suffering of millions of human beings–while serving to minimize the atrocities committed by their captors. Teach children the pure, unadulterated truth, in every possible way, so that we can endeavor to learn and evolve as a human species on this planet.

Mc Graw-Hill was caught.

A Texas mom shocked that her son’s textbook merely called African slaves “workers” is thrilled that publisher McGraw-Hill has promised revisions. But changing a single caption is hardly enough to combat what some educational experts call a wave of ideologically-fueled school standards that downplay the role of race and slavery in shaping America today.

Roni Dean-Burren was horrified when her son sent her a snapchat of his McGraw-Hill World Geography textbook, an edition created especially for Texas’ new state standards adopted in 2010. Opening up to a graphic titled “Patterns of Immigration,” he snapped a photo of the map’s caption. The caption reads:

The Atlantic Slave Trade between the 1500s and the 1800s brought millions of workers from Africa to the southern United States to work on agricultural plantations.

Examining his book more closely, Ms. Dean-Burren realized that although European indentured servants are described as working for “little or no pay,” there was no further mention of black slaves; their presence is simply portrayed as part of “immigration.”
