Koch Tales 2: Colonial Mortgage Minnie

May I say it this way- the Kochs are pretty big, but Kaiser and Krupp were bigger, and all are pyramided via the railroad underground pool, as tracked by the Allen County Estate of Minnie V. Kryder and the Allen County Charitable Trust of Frank Freimann, Magnavox pioneer and president.

Recall that Koch Fuels incorporated in Indiana the same day that Frank Freimann executed the Codicil to his Will for the Trust which was never probated, just as Minnie V. Kryder's Trust was never probated.

NBC's new comedy, Outsourced

I gave in to curiosity. Keep in mind, outsourcing call centers and manufacturing to China, India, etc. is one thing that boils my blood more than anything. Can I bring a different point of view on the subject? Please hear me out.

A Perpetual Game of Distraction: All So We Don’t Bring up Globalization

It is an age old plan. But it has worked for years. Make sure all we talk about are divisive issues that divide us according to our culture or religious beliefs or skin color or ethnicity. This is done to keep us from focusing on what is happening in this country. THE ONLY ISSUE worth discussing is that we are being taken over by multinational corporations that wish to convert this country into little more than an outsourcing service center, serviced alone by fast-food chains, stores like Wal-mart and ignorant, cheap labor.

Remembering James Baldwin - Rare Video

James Baldwin was ahead of this time. In this rare video, James talks about transcending race. White is an attitude, Black an attitude. Not a color or a race.

Disenchanted by Apes:) The Right are Like Chimps and the Left are Like Bonobos!

Back in the mid-90's I watched this Film called "The Art of Deception in Primate World." , and in it it showed the dominant males of this group of chimps would bark out a false call of an invading predator. The smaller weaker subordinate chimps would drop their food and hide. That's when the dominant males would come and pick up the food they dropped.

Stabenow Americans Want To Work Act???

I hope this gets to you while you have Sen Sanders on this AM. What's the status of the Stabenow bill S.3706? The 99rs want to know and I haven't heard a thing on the news or on talk radio about this bill.

A call to all good and able people to get active!!

I recently discovered this wonderful quote in Fawn Brodie's "An intimate portrait of Thomas Jefferson" and it is so very vital to the progressive movement today in light of the conservative right possitioning themselves to try and take back the government. The following quote is a letter from Jon Taylor (speaker of the house of Delegates for Virginia) to Thomas Jefferson dates May 6, 1782 regarding Jefferson's recent reluctance to accept his election to the Virginia legislature:

Damn that Jimmy Carter - he's at it again!

I used the word predecessor when discussing Reagan - meant to say 'successor'..

Deficit/2%-ers tax cuts: Why is this graph not plastered everywhere?

This recently updated graph says it all, especially for those who prefer pictures over text:

You REALLY want to "cut the deficit"? Those tax cuts for the 2%-ers are the BIGGEST reason for it.

How Can the GOP Run American Government If They Hate It?

The coal country state of West Virginia is in the middle of a special legislative session to deal with a $270 million budget shortfall, and it's setting the stage for Republicans to completely gut the state's government.

It's the same playbook we've seen the right-wing carry out in Wisconsin, in Kansas, in Michigan, and in Ohio.
