POCHO amigo Flavio Morales dug this oldie up out of the secret vaults that hold the treasured recordings of his groundbreaking TV program Illegal Interns: Live concert footage from 1997 of Take the Power Back by Rage Against the Machine. [RATM is, indeed, raging so there are many NSFW F-bombs etc. Also, if play it loud you can sing along and no one will know.]

cyberbracero(PNS reporting from LOS ANGELES) Newly-uncovered video confirms allegations that the U.S. Government stole and perverted POCHO Jefe-in-Chief Lalo Alcaraz’s 1998 plan to use remote-controlled robots (now called drones) for peaceful purposes.

The short informational piece, which Alcaraz made for the United States Department of Labor, aired only once — on local access cable TV program Illegal Interns. It was lost to the public until a VHS version was discovered in a storage locker in Boyle Heights last week.

Alcaraz’ documentary illustrates how remotely-controlled farm workers/braceros (called “cyber-braceros” or “cybraceros” for short in the quaint lingo of the 20th Century) could pick American crops without crossing America’s border.

Sadly, Alcaraz’ prophetic vision of remotely-controlled robots was perverted by Tio Sam and used for killing foreigners overseas and snooping on Americans at home.

The Labor Department video starts at 1:05 into the program: [Mas…]
