Did You Know? Part 2
*Twenty two hundred children who were 14 or younger died from unintentional
shootings averaging 11 children every month or one child every third day according
to the National Center for Health Statistics. The U.S. leads the industrialized
world. A 1997 study from the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention
found that for unintentional firearms-related deaths for children under 15
the rate in the U.S. was 9 times greater than in 25 other industrialized countries
combined. Nearly 8 times that number were injured. According to JAMA which
also stated that "most often involved handguns." Children as young as 3 can
pull the trigger on most commercially available handguns."
36,000 Americans are killed by guns every year. Another source states that 10 children are killed by handguns every day.
[Editor's note: This is why there is a demand in the first edition of True Democracy which states "Manufacture all guns with a locking device which is child proof;" but most of the public schools do not have this unique historically accurate magazine because they like the status quo.]
Charles Keating's (Lincoln Savings & Loan president involved in the Savings & Loan fraud) daughter was the president of Opus Dei and Louis Freeh, spy decoy Bob Hanssen are members too as well as William Casey and Oliver North, according to my contact Brian Downing Quig who states, "If I remember correctly."
Some elite groups include The Knights of Malta, The Roman Club, and the Roundtables. There are many other exclusive societies but they weren't named. The Federalist Society is probably one of them.
Good organizations include Friends of the Earth, The Globalization Challenge Initiative, and the Third World Network. Also, according to one of my stauchest supporters the N.A.A.C.P. and the Urban League are bogus organizations. My experience with Amnesty International is very negative but there are other organizations whose people are very supportive.
The National Labor Committee in New York City is one of those which is very supportive. Here are some statistics which will inform you of the reality that they published:
In a report entitled, "Made in China" on page 2, "Recently we discovered Kathie Lee handbags being made for Wal-Mart at the Qin Shi factory, where1,000 workers were being held under conditions of indentured servitude, forced to work 12 to 14 hours a day, seven days a week, with only one day off a month, while earning an average wage of 3 cents an hour. However, even after months of work, 46 percent of the workers surveyed earned nothing at all-in fact they owed money to the company. The workers were allowed out of the factory for just an hour and a half a day. The workers were fed two dismal meals a day and housed 16 people to one small, cramped dorm room. Many of the workers did not even have enough money to pay for bus fare to leave the factory to look for other work. And when the workers protested being forced to work from 7:30 a.m. to 11:00 p.m., seven days a week, for literally pennies an hour, 800 workers were fired."
In another section of this same report on page 16, it states, "the highest take home wage our researchers found in the factory was just 10 cents an hour" adding, "The workers are charged 560 rmb ($67.47 U.S.) for dorm and living expenses, which is an enormous amount...." Additionally, "In September and October, when the factory was producing Wal-Mart, the range of the workers wages varied wildly, but no one came even remotely close to making the already below-subsistence legal minimum wage of about 31 cents an hour, on which no one can possibly survive." But there is more. "U.S. companies are milking a system that does not allow for dissent and where anyone trying to form an independent union will be fired, arrested, and imprissoned for 5 to 8 years without a trial.
Just ask Liu Dingkui [page 4] about labor rights in China.
He was arrested in January 1999 for organizing a demonstration of 500 steelworkers
demanding back wages from the state-owned Peijiang Iron and Steel factory
in Jiangyou City. He is now serving 1 1/2 years in a hard labor camp for
're-education.'" And, it that isn't bad enough, this from the same report
on page 12, " Any attempt to organize an independent union would be met with
firings, beatings, arrest and imprisonment, without trial for 5-8 years on
a hard labor camp."
After I met the receptionist at this organization and read some of the literature that she provided me, I made her aware of information about which she wasn't aware previously. I told her that Jay Mazur who is one of their Directors at National Labor Committee is a member of the Trilateral Commission, the organization about which I exposed in the first edition of True Democracy because Mr. Mazur is a wolf in sheeps clothing. The Trilateral Commission co-opted a number of labor unions. That's why the minimum wage is so low in the United States. She thanked me. I asked her if he receives a salary from their organization. She assured me that he does not.
[Editor's note: This report is 107 pages long. To contact the National Labor Committee go to http://www.nlcnet.org or 275 Seventh Avenue, 15th Floor, New York, NY 10001 USA. To boycott Wal-Mart won't solve the problem; it will just lay off Wal-Mart workers. We have to solve this problem by boycotting the states of the U.S. Congress for vacation until they pass legislation which will raise the minimum wage throughout the world so workers will get a decent living wage. For that, go to the first edition of True Democracy (La verdad sobre la democracia) "Winter 2001" and print out the Demand page which is the last page and send it to the Speaker of the House if you are in the United States. Tell everyone that you know to do the same. Then, tell the public schools, public libraries, colleges, and universities to do that too. Then, we will solve that problem. The root of the problem is the fact that the elite and the military are controlling everything now and nothing the individual companies do will stop them; only you will stop them. If you are in another country other than the United States you can either send that Demand page in the snail mail, fax it, or send it as an Email. The choice is yours because you have a choice now. In another report this organization gave me, it states that workers are being tortured who try to unionize.]
