- THE PRICE OF PROSPERITY began with LBJ!
- Twenty cents an hour: This is Obama's "CHANGE you
can believe in," it also just happens to be the bedrock of his long-promised
return to prosperity-for the filthy-rich! How in hell can any company or
small business compete against .20 cents an hour? That's even cheaper than
any Chinese Labor could ever be. And there is never a problem with workers
rights, medical coverage or employee relations; nor will there ever be
any shortage of willing and totally submissive slaves.
- The headliners in creating this particular nightmare
are being led by the same privatizing-interests that have already stolen
everything else in the country; and now if you want to work you must compete
against a massive new prison-labor work force that can make as much as
.20 cents an hour: These are your tax dollars at work inside the privatized
prison-industrial system that is proud of incarcerating at least one of
every one-hundred people in this country.
- In 1980 we had only about one-quarter as many people
in prison as we do today-thanks to the Corrections Corporation of America,
for creating all these new corporate jobs that are virtually free to the
companies but whose new and much lower-costs will never be reflected in
the prices that people will still have to pay for their continued services.
Hey it's "JUST BUSINESS"! You too can share by getting
arrested or detained without charge, without a trial, without any rights
at all: But you'll have a job and a place to sleep until you can't work
anymore and then you're dead.
- "The breaded chicken patty your child bites into
at school may have been made by a worker earning twenty cents an hour,
not in a faraway country, but by a member of an invisible American workforce:
prisoners. At the Union Correctional Facility, a maximum security prison
in Florida, inmates from a nearby lower-security prison manufacture tons
of processed beef, chicken and pork for Prison Rehabilitative Industries
and Diversified Enterprises (PRIDE), a privately held non-profit corporation
that operates the state's forty-one work programs. In addition to processed
food, PRIDE's website reveals an array of products for sale through contracts
with private companies, from eyeglasses to office furniture, to be shipped
from a distribution center in Florida to businesses across the US. PRIDE
boasts that its work programs are "designed to provide vocational
training, to improve prison security, to reduce the cost of state government,
and to promote the rehabilitation of the state inmates."
- Although a wide variety of goods have long been produced
by state and federal prisoners for the US government-license plates are
the classic example, with more recent contracts including everything from
guided missile parts to the solar panels powering government buildings-prison
labor for the private sector was legally barred for years, to avoid unfair
competition with private companies. But this has changed thanks to the
American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), its Prison Industries Act,
and a little-known federal program known as PIE (the Prison Industries
Enhancement Certification Program). While much has been written about prison
labor in the past several years, these forces, which have driven its expansion,
remain largely unknown.
- Somewhat more familiar is ALEC's instrumental role in
the explosion of the US prison population in the past few decades. ALEC
helped pioneer some of the toughest sentencing laws on the books today,
like mandatory minimums for non-violent drug offenders, "three strikes"
laws, and "truth in sentencing" laws. In 1995 alone, ALEC's Truth
in Sentencing Act was signed into law in twenty-five states. (Then State
Rep. Scott Walker was an ALEC member when he sponsored Wisconsin's truth-in-sentencing
laws and, according to PR Watch, used its statistics to make the case for
the law.) More recently, ALEC has proposed innovative "solutions"
to the overcrowding it helped create, such as privatizing the parole process
through "the proven success of the private bail bond industry,"
as it recommended in 2007. (The American Bail Coalition is an executive
member of ALEC's Public Safety and Elections Task Force.) ALEC has also
worked to pass state laws to create private for-profit prisons, a boon
to two of its major corporate sponsors: Corrections Corporation of America
and Geo Group (formerly Wackenhut Corrections), the largest private prison
firms in the country. An In These Times investigation last summer revealed
that ALEC arranged secret meetings between Arizona's state legislators
and CCA to draft what became SB 1070, Arizona's notorious immigration law,
to keep CCA prisons flush with immigrant detainees. ALEC has proven expertly
capable of devising endless ways to help private corporations benefit from
the country's massive prison population.
- That mass incarceration would create a huge captive workforce
was anticipated long before the US prison population reached its peak-and
at a time when the concept of "rehabilitation" was still considered
part of the mission of prisons. First created by Congress in 1979, the
PIE program was designed "to encourage states and units of local government
to establish employment opportunities for prisoners that approximate private
sector work opportunities," according to PRIDE's website. The benefits
to big corporations were clear-a "readily available workforce"
for the private sector and "a cost-effective way to occupy a portion
of the ever-growing offender/inmate population" for prison officials-yet
from its founding until the mid-1990s, few states participated in the program.
- This started to change in 1993, when Texas State Representative
and ALEC member Ray Allen crafted the Texas Prison Industries Act, which
aimed to expand the PIE program. After it passed in Texas, Allen advocated
that it be duplicated across the country. In 1995, ALEC's Prison Industries
Act was born." This story continues at the site (1)
- With government importing people without papers at a
phenomenal rate that has seen over 20 million of these people still taking
jobs from Americans, with the government's collusion and sponsorship, which
began when Reagan wanted to make labor cheaper for his buddies. This new
idea of having to fight your own government for a job just became nearly
impossible by first of all increasing the prison-population through draconian
laws that incarcerate millions more people, just to be used again as literal
wage-slaves. Apparently it was not enough that there are almost no jobs
because we have exported god-knows how many jobs already: Now the
privatized-Privateers are using the prisoners they created to take the
jobs of laid off state and federal government workers as well. This is
monstrous! Not only will this government not support the efforts of Americans
to find jobs, they are actually supporting all kinds of efforts to ensure
that there are no jobs available for any American today.
- Here is one visible result of that policy, but for everyone
of these reported on; there are now countless encampments under freeways
and in the slums of every major city: These Obamaville's are brought to
us all by this government at work, in concert with US Incorporated, that
is about to end our ability to have any say in any of these policies by
transforming the congress from 535 members to just twelve robots that will
directly serve the New World Order and their masters; but never will they
ever serve "us!" (2)
- So how long can you last in a country that seeks to limit
the workforce to just twenty-cents an hour? How will your life be affected
when you and I become the primary targets for the SUPER-TWELVE who shall
act as our executioners in every area of American life?
- What are you made of people that you have still not decided
to refuse to go along with everything these OUTLAWS are doing each
and every hour to every one of us? The numbers of the prison population
will increase which is why FEMA has over 800 new bare-bones-prison camps
ready and waiting to be filled. All of this has been known for years, and
yet so many still refuse to act in their own defense. That is not the definition
of a human being-that is the definition of a thoroughly-conditioned slave
that has accepted the indoctrination program regardless of the self-evident
truths that surround us all.
- Just as the illustration above clearly shows the coming
chain gangs will have room for all kinds of people from all walks of life.
And make no mistake many of those who will be wearing chains will be among
the former uniformed-thugs that are so busy killing other Americans today:
Because this government always eats its own-it always has and it always
will! You can still choose to take yourself off this menu that so resembles
the Inquisition, and begin to resist in other ways, that can be used to
stop this plan before it can be implemented.
- Everything in the US today has been part of a criminal
fraud of gargantuan proportions that began to get serious once The White
House was stolen on 12-12-2000 by Bush the Deserter during the Vietnam
War. The last in a long line of traitors that are known as the Bush Dynasty
because of all the millions that have died under the Bushwhacked American
Policies that he and his family created. The massive fraud behind the SUPER
CONGRESS could be seen like this.
- 'Over the last ten YEARS attempting to organize the public
toward awareness, has not only NOT WORKED, but has instead resulted in
even deeper entrenchment of the International-Criminal Cabals than was
ever thought possible before. Whenever someone calls for "organization
to combat these traitors" they are inadvertently playing directly
into the hands of the Outlaws: Just as the Privateers are increasing their
hold upon this nation. If you want proof of what I just said then just
think about the fact that just a few years ago: NO ONE COULD OR WOULD HAVE
EVER SUGGESTED SOMETHING AS UN-AMERICAN AS this "SUPER-CONGRESS"
that is nothing more than the real face of the Fascist Police-State as
'acceptable' - which will soon be the one and only source for "LAW"
in this land of outlaws.'
- To embrace any of the existing ways of going about obtaining
a real resistance from this public is to just embrace a FOLLY that will
only delay real resistance and give the government more ammunition and
more road-kill to add to the prison populations. Please see 'Dancing
on the Edge of Oblivion' the video. (3)
