In a Reasoned Debate, Single Payer Will Come Out on Top

One can only feel sorrow and dismay at the bullying and hate-mongering that is taking place at health care forums around the country.

Massive job losses, the devaluation and foreclosures of people’s homes, and precipitous declines in lifetime savings produce widespread fears of further loss. In an era of insecurity, mainstream Democratic Party proposals for reforming the health system have played into such fears.

Americans: Serfs Ruled by Oligarchs

Americans think that they have “freedom and democracy” and that politicians are held accountable by elections. The fact of the matter is that the US is ruled by powerful interest groups who control politicians with campaign contributions. Our real rulers are an oligarchy of financial and military/security interests and AIPAC, which influences US foreign policy for the benefit of Israel.

Have a look at economic policy. It is being run for the benefit of large financial concerns, such as Goldman Sachs.

Buffett: We're Going to Be Crushed Under Mountain of Debt....with video

A highly influential American has finally hit the panic button about the tremendous mountain of debt the country is piling up.

Last year, Warren Buffett says, we were justified in using any means necessary to stave off another Great Depression. Now that the economy is beginning to recover, however, we need to curtail our out-of-control spending, or we'll destroy the value of the dollar and many Americans' life savings.

EU to probe 'exploding' iPhones and iPods

The EU is investigating reports of exploding iPhones and iPods, it was reported last night.

There are reports of iPods allegedly exploding or catching fire in Britain, France, Holland and Sweden.

Earlier this month an iPod Touch belonging to Ellie Stanborough, an 11-year-old girl from Liverpool, apparently blew up.

Her father complained at the time that he dropped the music player after it over-heated.

'It made a hissing noise,' he said. 'I could feel it getting hotter in my hand and I thought I could see vapour.'

He threw the music player out of his back door and 'within 30 seconds there was a pop, a big puff of smoke and it went 10ft in the air'.

Climate sceptics like Nazi appeasers: Rees

NSW Premier Nathan Rees compared climate change sceptics to Nazi appeasers as he addressed a roomful of scientists at the Eureka Awards last night.

In a speech about good policy based on good science, Mr Rees said it was important not to ignore the messages scientists were giving about the environment.

''The threat of climate change is catastrophic. In fact, the current wave of climate change scepticism smacks of 1930s-style appeasement: 'Hide under the blankets and it will go away'. But it won't go away.'

Flashback: Associated Press Deletes Crucial Portion of Witness Statement

On 12 October 2003, two suicide bombers drove cars packed with explosives toward the Baghdad Hotel. Iraqi and US personnel fired on them, causing them to crash into a concrete barrier, where their cars exploded. Eight people were killed, including the drivers, and 32 were injured.

The Associated Press filed several versions of this story. It often does this to add new details as a story develops or to correct information. But once in a while, the AP makes changes that are suspect. In this case, they gutted some intriguing information from a witness statement.

Obama's Health Bill Provides for Non-White, Racial Privilege

Does Obama's Socialized Health Care Plan Have a Racial Component? You Bet it Does.
21 July 2009
© Michael G. Leventhal
In a government run rationed health plan, bad publicity means little to a bureaucrat. They can't be fired and government won't go out of business. You have no recourse… if you're white.
But a black person does have recourse through the government health plan's "Office of Civil Rights," and "Office of Minority Affairs." All they have to do is claim racial discrimination and these government health plan divisions become their advocates.

Held In A Psychiatric Ward & Called “Delusional” For Saying 9/11 Was An Inside Job

Clare Swinney brought a complaint to the Broadcasting Standards Authority pointing out that TVNZ’s claim that Osama bin Laden carried out the attacks of 9/11 was an outright lie. Shortly afterwards, she was threatened and then incarcerated in a psychiatric ward. Following a week of compulsory treatment, the head psychiatrist told a judge that she should remain in hospital, as her belief that 9/11 was an inside job was evidence she was “delusional.” The judge agreed. This is her extraordinary story:

Evidence Suggests Obama and Dems Using Health Care Bill to Payoff ACORN (Nanny State Alert)
First it was the stimulus bill that didn't create jobs for average Americans but was instead a big payoff to groups like ACORN. Then, there was the auto bailout deal with turned over the auto companies to the unions. That was another windfall worth billions.

Tiger, from Notting Hill, London, has grown up around wing-walkers as Mr Norman owns the SuperAeroBatics formation wing-walking team.
The world record was held by Guy Mason, son of Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason, who first wing-walked in 2001 aged 11.
