“We’ve Worked real hard to Loot the Country” PP general secretary

This is what we used to call a Freudian slip.. when your subconscious  pops out the wrong word and you admit your crimes by mistake.loot  1

Maria Dolores, also President of Castilla meant to say ‘lift up the country (sacar)’ and instead said ‘loot and destroy the country’ (saquear.. as in ‘they sacked Troy’.)

It’s the second time she’s done it, and very timely too, because the latest scandal is that Rodrigo Rato, ex IMF President and guru of The ruling PP, is on the list of 705 elite politicians, business leaders and royals accused of stealing countless billions for nearly 40 years, and legalizing their offshore fortunes in a contrived ”fiscal amnesty”.rata.jpg,q1369403944.pagespeed.ce.CUvXncFVu4_foro

Rato was actually arrested and spent up to 3 HOURS in symbolic luxury custody. Continue reading “We’ve Worked real hard to Loot the Country” PP general secretary

12th Oct.. Day Of Indigenous Resistance

DAY OF INDIGENOUS RESISTANCE

Designated by Franklin D Roosevelt as “Columbus Day” in 1937, the 12th of October is the date that Christopher Columbus first “discovered” the Americas.

The anniversary was re-named “Day of Indigenous Resistance” by Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez in 2002 to commemorate the beginning of the indigenous struggle against European invasion and colonisation.resistencia-indigena-fidel-ernesto-vasquez

On 12 October, the Spanish state celebrates its festival with a great military parade as the central event. This is a date full of
controversy. Today it is called the Day of the National Festival, but for a large part of Franco’s time, it was also called ‘Hispanitat’ Day
and originally the Festival of the Race. And it was and is not only observed in Spain, but also in a few American countries under very
different names, in commemoration of the beginning of the Spanish colonisation of America.
In Argentina for example, it is called the Day of Respect for Cultural Diversity, and in Chile the Day of the Meeting of the Two Worlds,
whereas in Nicaragua and Venezuela, the 12 October is the Day of the Indigenous Resistance.
