FBI Hires Thousands; Verizon Fires Thousands

This seems like a good match up. How do we get these two together?

FBI Plans to Hire Thousands

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is hiring 3,450 new employees this year. We are looking to fill 900 special agent and 2,550 non-agent positions—from intelligence analysts to cyber experts, from scientists to accountants, from translators to engineers.

People interested in applying can visit with an FBI employee to find out more about the job openings. There will be an information session on the last Thursday of every month. (The first one will be held on January 28, 2010.) In November, the session will be held on the 3rd Thursday. There will be no session in December.


Verizon to cut more than 10,000 worker
Jan 26, 2010

NEW YORK - Verizon Communications Inc. said Tuesday it plans to cut more than 10,000 workers from its landline division this year as customers continue to get rid of home telephone service.

The telecom giant made the disclosure the same day it reported a loss in the final quarter of last year as the company spent $3 billion on severance and other costs that stemmed from its decision to lay off thousands of workers last year.

Verizon posted a net loss of $653 million, or 23 cents a share, in the three months ended Dec. 31, compared with a profit of $1.24 billion, or 43 cents a share, a year earlier. Revenue rose 10 percent to $27.1 billion.

Con- Fusion Centers! Fear is a Profitable Economy

***Fear is the #1 employer/economy of the US!! We import and export it! Listen, 151 members of our congress are invested in DOD/ security, our media is controlled by 4 or 5 corporations that are ALSO invested in DOD/security and many are employed in private security, mercenary and civil service jobs. The FEAR must continue!!***

The Calculus of Fear: Fear and War is a Profitable Economy
by Maximilian Forte

When fear is distributed by the mass media, managed and promoted by the state, even with calibrations of fear that assign specific values to different threats (the colour coding of threat levels in the U.S.), with armies of taxpayers called upon to pay ever more for more “security”, when they have less real income than before, supposedly with the aim of prolonging their lives against “the terrorist threat”, then one has to talk about fear as something that is calculated, controlled, and controlling. It has an economy, a symbolic system, assigned messengers, an armed apparatus, and a routinized discourse. It is not genuine fear–genuine fear is spontaneous, emotional, it goes as quickly as it comes, it cannot be articulated. The fear of terrorism is instead a managed fear, orchestrated by authority, invested with power in the defense of power

Why does the FBI need 1,000s more people?

I hope that you are wrong about that. The FBI does conduct "internal" investigations, right? Like dissidence and homegrown terrorists. This is bad news for sure.

I always like the term "Gathering Center" better.
Doesn't that sound like a nice place?
