Death Panels From Bad Legislation

Australia, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, the United Kingdom (England), and even Venezuela. What do all these developed first order modern countries have in common?

They abolished the death penalty. Conspicuously absent of course is the United States.

57 Trillion Reasons To Murder 100 Million

The U.S. debt of $57 trillion in unfunded liabilities, according to common sense, is compelling reason for federal governors conspiring with special interests to murder 100 million Americans this fall using poisonous vaccinations.

According to federal deficit calculators at USDebtClock.org, more than $57 trillion is currently owed, including $39 trillion(T) in medicaid/medicare debt, $10T in social security payables, plus $8T in prescription drug liabilities, levying$189,210.00 in servitude upon every American citizen.

Woodstock: 40 Years Down The Road And A Nation Lost

If Woodstock itself was not the epitome of social protest and activism, the times surrounding it were. There was an immoral and unjustified US war and occupation a half a world away, there was a culture of government spying on its citizens and invasion of their privacy and there was a growing dichotomy in society. In short, eerily similar to what seems to be the case today. And there were people protesting. Loud and large. Out in the streets, on college campuses, in the public square. There was a lot of juice to the dissent and it was led by the youth, college students and academics.

Where are they today ? Where has the soul and conscience of our society gone? Where is the dissent; where is the beef? It is curiously and conspicuously absent from our analogous circumstance. There is so much wrong, on so many fronts; and yet there is so much talent and ability. People are sick and tired of the state of the nation; and yet the ability and gumption to mobilize and make a stand seems lost. Why?

Obama's Presidency: A Political and Moral Disappointment

It's all over town. Only the Obama administration does not want to hear it. The people responsible for the moral decay of U.S. foreign policy were the 'Bush-worriers': Vice President Dick Cheney and his President George W. Bush and all the other cronies. Why will Eric Holder investigate the poor CIA subordinates who just followed orders? The torture memos and all the other unconstitutional and partly criminal orders went all the way down the chain of command. The White House people were a gathering of political tricksters. The U.S. has no moral authority anymore, despite Obama, because his foreign policy has only been slightly different from his predecessor’s.

Our mountains are not for sale

Environmentalist Robert Kennedy, Jr., has called the practice of blasting tops off whole mountains and dumping the slag in the nearest valley, America’s worst environmental disaster. Like him, Alexander believes this gross technique must come to an end. The Cumberlands are among the most bio-diverse and beautiful eco-systems on earth.

Lands where mountaintop removal occurs become nearly lifeless in comparison to their pre-blasted state. Most of the flora and fauna that existed there for thousands or millions of years can no longer survive in the slag-heap once it’s been "reclaimed" by invasive species. The travesty sullies headwaters of dozens of streams that flow into the Tennessee, the Cumberland, the Obed and many other rivers.

Dostoyevsky on the Jewish Question

Fyodor Dostoyevsky left us a prophecy of the threat to Christian civilization by emancipated Jewry.

In his book, Diary Of A Writer, published in 1877, Dostoevsky penned a journal entry entitled "The Jewish Question." With alarming and frightening foresight, by which he penetrated into today’s events, Dostoevsky predicted a growing domination over social and political affairs by the Jews with their newly acquired rights:

“The Jews look forward to world domination. This requires them to maintain their own close-knit identity. If the Jews are given equal legal rights in Russia, but are allowed to keep their ‘State within a State,’ they would be more privileged than the Russians. The consequences of this situation are already clear in Europe.”

Obama's America is not delivering the goods

With great sorrow and deep consternation, we hereby declare the death of the latest hope. Perhaps rumors of its death are greatly exaggerated, to paraphrase the famous quote by Mark Twain, but the fears are being validated day after day. Barack Obama's America is not delivering the goods. Sharing a glass of beer with a racist cop and a pat on the back of Hugo Chavez are not what we hoped for; wholesale negotiations on freezing settlement construction are also not what we expected. Just over six months after the most promising president of all began his term, perhaps hope has a last breath left, but it is on its deathbed.

New battery could change world, one house at a time

Ceramatec says its new generation of battery would deliver a continuous flow of 5 kilowatts of electricity over four hours, with 3,650 daily discharge/recharge cycles over 10 years. With the batteries expected to sell in the neighborhood of $2,000, that translates to less than 3 cents per kilowatt hour over the battery's life. Conventional power from the grid typically costs in the neighborhood of 8 cents per kilowatt hour.

Re-read that last paragraph and let the information really sink in. Five kilowatts over four hours -- how much is that? Imagine your trash compactor, food processor, vacuum cleaner, stereo, sewing machine, one surface unit of an electric range and thirty-three 60-watt light bulbs all running nonstop for four hours each day before the house battery runs out.

Jews whining about having to obey the law

This is something Mike suggested may be happening. The Obama administration isn't giving the "Israeli citizens" such a free ride as they were used to under Bush!

A second lawyer, Reuven Berkovitcz, was appointed instead as the suspect's legal counsel. Following the session, Dub told The Jerusalem Post, "This is part of a witch-hunt against the Jewish community being waged by American law enforcement, at the behest of the Obama administration."

He added, "The Jewish community is being persecuted, and this is one of many episodes. It's just another example of them making a big shtick over nothing. Where was the US government between 2003 and 2009? You would think they would have requested an extradition during that time."

Nuclear power's sick legacy

CO2 is not the only global warming gas emitted by nuclear power. The Pacudah enrichment plant in Kentucky, which processes uranium from many countries, including Australia, annually leaks 93 per cent of the CFC-114 gas released by the US. Banned under the Montreal protocol, CFC is a prodigious destroyer of the ozone layer and it also is a potent global warming agent.

Furthermore, nuclear reactors routinely emit large amounts of radioactive materials, including the fat-soluble noble gases xenon, krypton and argon. Deemed "inert" by the nuclear industry, they are readily inhaled by populations near reactors and absorbed into the bloodstream where they concentrate in the fat pads of the abdomen and upper thighs, exposing ovaries and testicles to mutagenic gamma radiation (like X-rays).

Swine flu jab link to killer nerve disease: Leaked letter reveals concern of neurologists over 25 deaths in America

A warning that the new swine flu jab is linked to a deadly nerve disease has been sent by the Government to senior neurologists in a confidential letter.

The letter from the Health Protection Agency, the official body that oversees public health, has been leaked to The Mail on Sunday, leading to demands to know why the information has not been given to the public before the vaccination of millions of people, including children, begins.

It tells the neurologists that they must be alert for an increase in a brain disorder called Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS), which could be triggered by the vaccine.

GBS attacks the lining of the nerves, causing paralysis and inability to breathe, and can be fatal.

Demolition Access To The WTC Towers: Part Two - Security Kevin Ryan 911 Essay

Who could have placed explosives in the World Trade Center (WTC) towers? This is the second essay in a series that attempts to answer that question. The first installment began by considering the tenants that occupied the impact zones and the other floors that might have played a useful role in the demolition of the WTC towers. [1] The result was a picture of connections to organizations that had access to explosive materials and to the expertise required to use explosives. Additionally it was seen that, in the years preceding 9/11, the impact zone tenants had all made structural modifications to the areas where the airliners struck the buildings.

The management representatives of these tenant companies were seen to be secretive and powerful. Through these powerful people, the tenants were connected to organizations that benefited greatly from the 9/11 attacks, including the defense contractors Lockheed Martin, Raytheon, General Dynamics, Halliburton, and Science Applications International Corp (SAIC). The tenants also had strong connections to the Bush family and their corporate network, including Dresser Industries (now Halliburton) and UBS, and to Deutsche Bank and its subsidiaries, reported to have brokered the insider trading deals. There were also links between these tenant companies and the terrorist-financing Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI).

How Apathy Will Destroy America

Dissidence,one of the rarest and most impavid of facility, is a straggling virtue which is only used when our own selfishness arises.
But when we are willing to shout and scream out the truth,when we are willing to fight and die in order to live in a free nation and when we as a people are willing to break the silence – then we can rightfully claim to be free.

The death of individual and united autonomy will not come via our government or the powers that will but from the inside.
The death of America will come from selfishness,apathy and indifference to that which is wrong and unjust.

"I was really hassled perhaps because of my name being Khan. These guys just wouldn't let me through," he said in a text message to reporters in India.

29 US Democrats: Biggest Peace Obstacle is Abbas Stubborness

A large United States Congressional delegation of Democrats blamed the Palestinian Authority for the stalemated diplomatic process at a news conference Thursday in Jerusalem .

"I think the largest thing impeding the negotiations at this point,” House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) told the journalists Thursday, “is simply the unwillingness of [PA Chairman Mahmoud] Abbas to sit down [with the Israelis].”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Sometimes, one wishes that Steny Hoyer would resign from the US House of Representatives, and run for the Knesset.

One knows precisely to which foreign entity Hoyer's first allegiances lie.

In terms of congressional representatives, there are few more quick to slam Israel's victims than Hoyer.

Israeli Containment Strategy: Gaza Misery Used to Intimidate West Bankers

The siege on Gaza is a "primitive" form of containment, a simple repressive siege which has transformed the Gaza Strip into the world's largest prison. The people of Gaza are held as prisoners—by restricting them to a small location, and by strictly controlling everything going in or out of that area. Like in most prisons, a smuggling industry is thriving in Gaza and, like in most prisons, the prisoners are taught a cynical lesson that "might makes right."

Uranium Weapons - Does anyone care about our planet?

To date I have not heard from any of those who control the region or the media despite the fact that each and every day weapons with uranium components are being used. Each and every day people are dying from their usage and the medical statistics in each of their respective regions are showing sharp rises in many forms of cancers, diabetes, infertility and genetic mutations resulting in gross birth defects. I concluded my email to the above as follows: "All my emails to you will be kept on record as evidence that you all have been notified along with your respective lack of responses......maybe one day you will be called to give evidence in an International Court.......then what will you say?

What would you be thinking about the human beings who had made the decision to deploy these weapons?

“Incestuous” relationships between Blackwater and U.S. government

And apparently, for Eric Prince, his "new crusade" against Arab Muslims proved to be amazingly financially lucrative.

U.S. forces kill Afghan security guards

JALALABAD, Afghanistan, Aug. 14, 2009 (UPI) -- U.S.-led coalition forces killed two Afghan security guards and six others in a raid in the eastern border province of Nangarhar, officials said Friday.

The U.S. military launched an overnight operation in the Spin Ghar district of Nangarhar following reports of plans of militant attacks meant to coincide with presidential and provincial elections.

Ahmad Zia Abdulzai, a provincial spokesman, said U.S. combat forces killed a border patrol officer along with a member of his family. An Afghan serviceman was among those killed by U.S. forces as well, the Pajhwok Afghan News agency reports.

Israel Begins Sell-Off of Refugees’ Land

According to international law, Israel holds the property of more than four million Palestinian refugees in custodianship, until a final peace deal determines whether some or all of them will be allowed back to their 400-plus destroyed Palestinian villages or are compensated for their loss.

But last week, in a violation of international law and the refugees’ property rights that went unnoticed both inside Israel and abroad, Benjamin Netanyahu, the prime minister, forced through a revolutionary land reform.

The new law begins a process of creeping privatization of much of Israel’s developed land, including refugee property, said Oren Yiftachel, a geographer at Ben Gurion University in Beersheva.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unflipping believable, yet somehow thoroughly predictable from Netanyahu's government.

Role of US Militarism in Ahmadinejad’s Rise

Decades of U.S. hostility toward Iran, and sanctions and military threats and attacks have had a net result: the efforts by the courageous people of Iran in establishing a democratic political system has been thwarted by undemocratic and even neo-fascist groups, who have used the militarist policy of the U.S. toward Iran as their excuse to suppress freedom.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US doesn't want a real democracy in Iran; with that, there would be no bogeyman to demonize, and Ahmadinejad does make the perfect scapegoat.

What they want is for there to be yet another American-friendly puppet (like the Shah) installed in Iran for access to the oil.

As reported at this site yesterday,

http://obamboozled.blogspot.com/2009/08/wag-dog-again.html

the US has assured Israel that they will have a response to Iran "within the next 8 weeks"

That means that the UN will have resumed its session in September, and the US deadline for Iran to respond to the US's demands will be over.

We may very well be looking at an "October Surprise" this fall, and if it happens, it may well be the start of WWIII.

Russia has warned Tel Aviv and Washington that this will be the case, so the question of whose side Russia will be on in such a conflict has been made crystal-clear.

Unfortunately, logic and hubris, throughout history, have never had an on-going relationship.

Who killed Tamara Greene?

The most incredible plot is a simple one: She is said to have danced at a party at the mayor's mansion and was executed because she knew too much.

The party, of course, has never been proven, and the facts about Greene, as told by investigators, friends and family members,reveal something far less sinister. A portrait emerges of a woman who ran with bad men and died with two black eyes.

Greene, 27, was Detroit murder victim No. 113 in 2003. There were 366 homicides in the city that year, just half of those resolved. At first, her death was considered an ordinary blue-collar murder -- a drive-by job -- in a city with too many of them. She died in a hail of bullets, slumped over her steering wheel, her eyeglasses broken, the car still in drive, creeping down the street.

Aug 15 08:00

Lawyers for slain dancer's family see police file on death

Detroit police had argued against releasing Greene's homicide file to attorneys representing her family during an ongoing investigation.

Greene's slaying has drawn attention because of a never-proven party some say Kilpatrick held at the Manoogian Mansion, then the city's mayoral residence. Some say Greene, whose stage name was Strawberry, danced at the fall 2002 party and was later assaulted by Kilpatrick's wife.

State investigators say the party never happened.

Former priest Michael Stephen Baker informed Mahony two decades ago of his abusive acts but was allowed to remain in the ministry. His case has become a symbol of how the church transferred priests who abused young boys.

From there he went on to Poland, to Auschwitz, where with his own eyes he observed that, in the effective absence of any “holes” in the collapsed roof of an alleged homicidal gas chamber, there was cause to doubt whether such chemical slaughterhouses had ever existed at that spot, the veritable centre of the “Holocaust”. Finally, on a pilgrimage to the Germanic lands, he shared his doubts and asked for explanations, an act which earned him forthwith a stay in prison.

The jobless numbers are stabilizing, the stock market is sizzling, quarterly earnings came in better than expected, traders have turned bullish, housing is showing signs of life, and clunker-swaps have given Detroit a well-needed boost of adrenalin. Even Cassandra economists --like Paul Krugman and Nouriel Roubini--have been uncharacteristically optimistic. Is is true; did we avoid a Second Great Depression? Is the worst really behind us?

Maybe. But there is only one way to find out for sure. Raise rates.

Caucasus: The War That Was, The World War That Might Have Been

Abkhazia and South Ossetia are of course in the South Caucasus and not in Georgia except in the minds of those anxious to expel Russia from the Caucasus, North and South, and transparently have been included as they are targets of designs by U.S. empire builders to further encircle, weaken and ultimately dismantle the Russian Federation.

Russian political leadership has been reserved if not outright compliant over the past decade when the U.S. and NATO attacked Yugoslavia, invaded Afghanistan and set up military bases throughout Central and South Asia, invaded Iraq in 2003, assisted in deposing governments in Yugoslavia, Georgia, Adjaria, Ukraine and Kyrgyzstan to Russia's disadvantage and brazenly boasted of plans to drive Russia out of the European energy market.

Local group's Web site opposes Obama over 'enemy list'

If President Obama and his administration want to put together an “enemies list,” Abilenian Kevin Christian is more than willing to help.

Christian has joined a few friends in kicking off an in-your-face Web site — www.flaguswhitehouse.com — that encourages Americans to band together and “stand unafraid” in opposing Obama’s healthcare plan and “any administration that compiles an enemies list, chilling free speech.”

The US is Funding the Pakistani Taliban

MARDAN, Pakistan — Standing in the lush plains of Mardan in the Northwest Frontier Province, the rugged and arid mountains that enclose the Peshawar valley on all sides may appear farther than they actually are. A few dozen miles to the north and west in the mountains, the Pakistan army has been engaged in a bloody battle with Taliban militants for years over the control of territory.

The armed guerrilla fighters have avoided forays onto the flat plains of Mardan, but driving through the main market of the city where vendors sell everything from kebab to Kalashnikovs, or among the cattle in leafy tobacco fields, or the large 16-wheeler trucks on the potholed roads, there are traces of Taliban, even here.

Pundits Trying to Help Cheney Avoid Jail

Another interviewee was impressed by Cheney's "continuing zeal" for the positions he took while in office. Gellman describes Cheney as "urgently focused " on shaping events." Gellman also stirs up some empathy for the lion-in-winter ex-Vice President. According to Gellman, Cheney takes a morning drive to Starbucks for a decaffeinated latte (no caffeine because of his heart condition, you know) and attends the soccer and softball games of his grandchildren.

The trouble for Gellman's sympathetic portrayal is that there is far too much evidence of criminal activity on the record about his subject, though you wouldn't know that from reading the Post article.

What Cheney is "urgently focused" on right now is staying out of prison. As he sits writing his memoir in his own Eagle's Nest over his garage in a fancy Virginia suburb, Cheney is pulling out all the stops to ensure that he does not have to face the music for war crimes.

Healthcare Plan Based on Economic Fantasy

As the healthcare debate rages on, there is one reality that even the proponents of this hostile takeover of healthcare by government cannot ignore – and that is money. The government simply does not have the money for a new, expansive, public healthcare plan. The country is in a deep recession that will deepen even further with the coming collapse of the commercial real estate market. The last thing we need is for government to increase and expand taxes to pay for another damaging, wasteful program. Foreigners are becoming less enthusiastic about buying our debt, and creating another open-ended welfare program when we cannot pay for what is already in place, will not help.

Utah volunteers for H1N1 Swine Flu Vac Trials

Vaccine trials: Utahns enlist in war against H1N1 Swine Flu
Hundreds of residents are needed to test the safety of a new treatment
By Andrew Maddocks
Updated: 08/14/2009 03:30:46 PM MDT
Healthy adults or parents thinking about volunteering their children ages 6 months to 9 years old should not be worried about the possibility of severe side effects, said Primary Children's Hospital Medical Director Ed Clark.
Clark and Longson say the H1N1 vaccines are believed to be no more dangerous than seasonal flu vaccines, which have been tested annually since 1945. The expected rate of complications is the same.
"The flu vaccine has been remarkably safe over the decades," Clark said.

Polio surge in Nigeria after vaccine virus mutates

Polio, the dreaded paralyzing disease stamped out in the industrialized world, is spreading in Nigeria. And health officials say in some cases, it's caused by the vaccine used to fight it.

In July, the World Health Organization issued a warning that this vaccine-spread virus might extend beyond Africa. So far, 124 Nigerian children have been paralyzed this year — about twice those afflicted in 2008.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

They have known that this vaccine had problems since 2005, and this poison wasn't taken off the market immediately?!?!?

And why?!?!?

Drug company profits, pure and simple. It's always about the money, and rarely about the health of the people being vaccinated.

Obama denounces emphasis on health care protests

President Barack Obama on Friday denounced what he suggested was news media overemphasis on scenes of angry protesters at town-hall meetings on health care. "TV loves a ruckus," Obama said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to President Obama and Congress: the anger thinking Americans are feeling right now is deep, palpable, and growing by the day.

The health care issue, Ladies and Gentlemen, are just the tip of the iceberg.

Americans are angry at a government which has taxed them to death, with taxpayers having nothing to show for it, the government's colossal borrowing to pay for the wars without end, and the reality that the only entities represented are the large corporations for whom congressional representatives are merely "acquisitions, through overt and covert campaign support.

They understand that we are well and truly in a new phase of "taxation without representation".

People protesting about the government have absolutely legitimate gripes, and should never be characterized as "Un-American"; they are well and truly exercising their First Amendment Right, as guaranteed under the Bill of Rights and Constitution of the United States.

One would hope that this administration would never characterize the Constitution and Bill of Rights "Un-American"; but given their behavior of late, one has to wonder.

Flashback: Obama/Daschle's Health Care Crime in Stimulus Bill

Ruin Your Health With the Obama Stimulus Plan: Betsy McCaughey
Feb. 9 (Bloomberg)
Tragically, no one from either party is objecting to the health provisions slipped in without discussion. These provisions reflect the handiwork of Tom Daschle, until recently the nominee to head the Health and Human Services Department.
The stimulus bill does that, and calls it the Federal Coordinating Council for Comparative Effectiveness Research (190-192). The goal, Daschle’s book explained, is to slow the development and use of new medications and technologies because they are driving up costs. He praises Europeans for being more willing to accept “hopeless diagnoses” and “forgo experimental treatments,” and he chastises Americans for expecting too much from the health-care system.

Superman is literally chopped into pieces between the Siegels, DC Comics, and Warner Bros which will do nothing but hurt in the long run. According to Variety, the Siegels have recaptured the rights to the first two weeks of the daily Superman newspaper strips, and portions of Action Comics and Superman comics. They apparently now control all depictions of Superman's origin story, which means they now own Krypton, its fiery destruction, Jor-El and Lora, and Kal El. In 2008, the Siegels recaptured the rights to the Superman character (which includes his costume and his alter-ego of Clark Kent), Lois Lane, the Daily Planet, its gruff editor, and their love triangle. DC still owns Jimmy Olson, his ability to fly, Lex Luthor, kryptonite, and Superman's expanded powers and origins.

July foreclosures in Hawaii hit record high

Hawaii real estate foreclosure cases reached a record 990 last month as more homeowners continue to struggle with their mortgages in the weak real estate market and economy.

The number of cases in July compared with 229 a year earlier and 706 in June, according to California-based real estate research firm RealtyTrac. The previous high was 816 in May.

Foreclosures in Hawaii are growing in part because weak home sales have made avoiding foreclosure harder for people who can't sell their house or pay their mortgage.

Makena visitors: Parking outside stall may net fine

Longtime beachgoers at Makena State Park were surprised and concerned Thursday that they weren't being allowed to park in places they have been doing so for years.

Kihei resident Kirk Surry said a man, who he believed was a Department of Land and Natural Resources officer, warned him that cars were being ticketed if they were parked anywhere other than in the paved, marked spaces of the parking lots. Many beach users often park on the dirt and gravel inside and alongside the parking lots when all the spaces are full.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I've been to Makena many times, and the paved and marked parking is totally inadequate for the size of the beaches. Parking in adjacent gravel and grass areas has been the norm for years, but apparently Maui County has realized that the absence of marked parking can be turned into a profit center. No doubt an $50 a pop for a ticket, plans to expand the parking lot are now on permanent hold.

As a side note, one reason for the change in enforcement aside from profit motive may be "Little" Makena beach, an unofficial clothing optional area that is a constant target by good moral Christians (who inevitably own T-shirt and bathing suit stores). Ever since these good moral salesmen lobbied for a Hawaii law banning nude bathing the portion of our tourism that favored clothing optional beaches (estimated 12%) no longer comes to Hawaii but instead spends their money in other countries where they are less psychologically screwed up about the human body.

Toxic Loans Topping 5% May Push 150 Banks to Point of No Return

More than 150 publicly traded U.S. lenders own nonperforming loans that equal 5 percent or more of their holdings, a level that former regulators say can wipe out a bank’s equity and threaten its survival.

The number of banks exceeding the threshold more than doubled in the year through June, according to data compiled by Bloomberg, as real estate and credit-card defaults surged. Almost 300 reported 3 percent or more of their loans were nonperforming, a term for commercial and consumer debt that has stopped collecting interest or will no longer be paid in full.

Wag The Dog, Again

Israeli media reports that visiting National Security Adviser General Jim Jones and Secretary of Defense Robert Gates have told the government of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to stop complaining about Iran because the US is preparing to take action "in eight weeks" demonstrate that even when everything changes in Washington, nothing changes. President Barack Obama has claimed that a peaceful settlement of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict is a high priority but the Israelis and their allies in congress and the media have been able to stonewall the issue. Israel has made no concessions on its settlement policy, which is rightly seen as the single biggest obstacle to eventual creation of a Palestinian state, and has instead pushed ahead with new building and confiscations of Arab homes.

He added: "Mysteries were those where there were too many variables to predict. And I think that how long U.S. forces will be in Afghanistan is in that area."

He said his top commander in Afghanistan, Gen. Stanley McChrystal, is free to ask for whatever he needs, but Gates said when the general submits a revised war plan in the coming weeks it will not contain a request to expand the U.S. fighting force.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There are no "mysteries" that an honest assessment of the situation cannot uncover.

And to describe the actual continued length of the American occupation of Afghanistan as a "mystery" is completely unacceptable to We the People.

The leadership in the Pentagon and civilian leadership knew several things before going in 8 years ago, as lessons allegedly learned from previous military misadventures:

1. You cannot win what is essentially a ground war from the air.
2. You cannot go in to a region like Afghanistan without a huge commitment of troops to actually occupy the country. The old Soviet Union failed in this with 500,000 pairs of boots on the ground.
3. You cannot set up a corrupt puppet government which appears to support US drone strikes indiscriminately killing civilians without radicalizing those left standing further against that government and the US.

And yet, this is precisely the outcome we have had in Afghanistan. The pipelines to control the oil (and about which we were actually negotiating with the Taliban in August of 2001) still cannot be put in place because of the volatility in the country.

Apparently, the Bush administration thought that a war of occupation would be "cheaper" than what the Taliban was asking for the deal.

Tell that to all the families and friends of people who have died, or been wounded physically and mentally to the point where they will never be able to function again in this conflict.

The Prophecy of Diseased Whores and Vampire Scum.

The FEMA camps and the hundreds of thousands or millions of coffin liners by the sides of the highways are not new housing for the foreclosed upon any more than the coffin liners are actually porto-pottys for government sponsored rock concerts. The outrageous theft of the assets of the American people and the following bailout thefts which added insult to injury is not some sort of escrow account for future philanthropic activities. It really looks like there’s a network of super villains engaged in herding humanity on to the playing fields of Armageddon.

Florida Authorities In Hysterical Crusade Against First Amendment

Police and media outlets in Florida are hysterically characterizing the placement of Obama Joker posters as some kind of assault on the people of Clermont, creating “victims” and leading to demands for arrests and criminal charges, a shocking indictment of the state of free speech and the evisceration of the first amendment in America.

New York Times Doesn't Read Its Own Healthcare Horror Articles

The first paragraph is an incredible example of audacity and cluelessness:

The stubborn yet false rumor that President Obama’s health care proposals would create government-sponsored “death panels” to decide which patients were worthy of living seemed to arise from nowhere in recent weeks.

Duh! Out of nowhere?

NYT Magazine just weeks ago ran an article by Peter Singer,Why We Must Ration Health Care.

RBS uber-bear issues fresh alert on global stock markets

Britain's Uber-bear is growling again. After predicting a torrid "relief rally" over the early summer, Bob Janjuah at Royal Bank of Scotland is advising clients to take profits in global equity and commodity markets and prepare for another storm as winter nears.

We are now in the middle of a parabolic spike up," he said in his latest confidential note to clients.

"I expect this risk rally to continue into – and maybe through – a large part of August. What happens after that? The next ugly leg of the bear market begins as we get into the July through September 'tipping zone', driven by the failure of the data to validate the V (shaped recovery) that is now fully priced into markets."

Israel begins sell-off of refugees’ land

According to international law, Israel holds the property of more than four million Palestinian refugees in custodianship, until a final peace deal determines whether some or all of them will be allowed back to their 400-plus destroyed Palestinian villages or are compensated for their loss.

But last week, in a violation of international law and the refugees’ property rights that went unnoticed both inside Israel and abroad, Binyamin Netanyahu, the prime minister, forced through a revolutionary land reform.

The new law begins a process of creeping privatization of much of Israel’s developed land, including refugee property, said Oren Yiftachel, a geographer at Ben Gurion University in Beersheva.
