Volume XX No.15: April 10, 2015
Congress is set to return from its most recent recess and high on the list of special interests is reauthorizing the Export-Import Bank. Rather than exposing taxpayers to billions in potential losses by giving new life to this Depression-era dinosaur, lawmakers should focus on other more pressing issues. It’s time to protect taxpayers by ending Ex-Im.
No Coincidence: GE doubles down on world of cheap, dirty, destructive Energy same day Hillary announces run for Presidency.
Democrats and Republicans are a cancer on the 99%.

RE ABQ PD chief comment

I have never, quite really, denied the existence of God. Moreso, I was, and am, unsure of it's nature. Those enlightened ones that can actually tell you that God was/is a "Him", or some long haired white dude that hung out with whores, the diseased, and the poor are truly more advanced than I. You see I, being religiously remedial (and likely a heathen), am aware of God's presence. I am of the mindset that when people look up to the sky for God that they are looking, perhaps, too far.
Another human being loses his life in a senseless shooting by a deranged person with a gun. Again, another notch in the bedpost of the NRA. How many more?
TPP: The profitability of our wealth-concentrating, planet-killing Oligarchs is NOT a matter of national security against China.
Bravo for trying to conflate the two, what with all the “terrorists threats from abroad” but it doesn’t hold any water.
Rather, the DEMOCRATS’ TPP is merely a matter of which party gets the resulting campaign contributions. But that isn’t going to stop Washington from using the corporate media (aka “ministry of misinformation”) to convince us of otherwise.
Obama= Deforestation=Extinction: Virgin forests in Southern US are being clear cut and burned for fuel.
Burning wood for fuel releases the carbon stored by the tree into the atmosphere.
Tell the UK: Southern Forests Aren't Fuel!
Tonight on THE BIG PICTURE Thom interviewed a nice man about the shooting in SC.
Unfortunately he mis spoke about ABQ's police chief prosecuting 2 of our kill cops.
The chief said the shooting of James Boyd was justified and stands behind these killer cops.
It was the DA (Brandenberg) of ABQ that is bringing charges and only after MUCH pressure from the public.
I hope Thom tells everyone what the truth is on this matter and clears things up.
We in NM only wish the chief was this lawabiding.
I watched ABC news Tuesday evening and Wed AM. They showed Mr Scott shot and falling down. I watched CNN show the same Thursday AM.
I watched FOX Wed AM and Sean Hannity Wed night and both cut off the video before Mr Scott fell.
I wonder why?????????????????

Come one. come all! Step right up and buy your ticket for a ride on the splendiferous, phantasmagoric, supersonic, miraculous, "Trans Pacific Partnership"
TPP is not some sort of futuristic flying machine, but yet another global trade scam coming at us like a volcanic eruption straight out of hell.

MADISON, Wisconsin -- On the eve of another foreign trip, Gov. Scott Walker's administration disclosed Thursday that Wisconsin taxpayers paid $138,000 for his February trip to Great Britain, which was billed as a trade mission but freighted with political overtones from his likely 2016 presidential bid.
American mullah Senator Chuck Schumer loves the military industrial complex and the very small country of Israel. Chuck is not a huge fan of America, the President, or peace and usually most people in D.C. don't go the full Spring Break and get super wasted on a capfull of power juice, but ol' Chucky has found himself naked, wrapped in the Star of David, and violently puking from the top of the Capital Dome like a bikini-clad sophomore co-ed spending the week in Lake Havasu.
