This is a great day for Magwire, ubiquitous conductor and world traveler, with the unveiling of "Karma-1," produced for the rich with an involuntary grant from the poor. It can now be meaningfully pointed out that Car-Kar rhymes with Jar-Jar (either Binks, or the Ball Foundation) and mimics the Caracara, or "Two-Faced Falcon," Fig. 47, Birds of the West Indies, First American Edition, James Bond, 1961. Fig.
ripe for exploitation, such a gift to the rich and their oligarchs!
Sigh, i wish i had my own government funded by others.

I have an idea that could solve two problems. Legalize Pot and make it only available through the Post Office. Order it from The USPS and then they can deliver it. Two problems solved!!!
I have been listening to all that has been said about the wall street views,the politics etc...
We are the people we have been waiting for to make changes Now.
The solution I see is that Term Limits need to be applied to all posts in the goverment as well the the Supreme court! where most of the problems are brewing..
The corporations taxed and if they do not pay the taxes then they do not sell here in the US as they are not US companies! (any corp taking their jobs else where, stay there.
Rich taxed and if they are the job makers then make the jobs!!!
Keep up the good work Thom! You hit the nail on the head a few shows back when you described how America was on its way to becoming a neo-feudal society. Your listners might be interested to know about an excellent free online book called “Feudalism alias American Capitalism”
Obama has gotten more money from Wall Street than the GOP canidates.
SAN DIEGO — Mexico ships televisions, cars, sugar and medical equipment to the United States. Soon, it may be sending water north.
Western states are looking south of the border for water to fill drinking glasses, flush toilets and sprinkle lawns, as four major U.S. water districts help plan one of two huge desalination plant proposals in Playas de Rosarito, about 15 miles south of San Diego. Combined, they would produce 150 million gallons a day, enough to supply more than 300,000 homes on both sides of the border.

Was Lehman brothers allowed to go bankrupt on purpose to frustrate Capital formation unsympathetic to the West?
In some respects Lehman's bankruptcy helped set off a chain reaction that dramatically changed the wealth of many developed and developing countries. Was the financial shock meant to disrupt formation of Capital skills and abilities somewhere that may prove to be unsympathetic to existing concentrations of Wealth in America?
Libya, Egypt, and Afghanistan are examples of the Capitalist economic concept of Creative Destruction. The Obama and Bush Administrations engaged in these three situations, in large part, in an attempt to create conditions that could absorb surplus Western Capital. There are Capital opportunities in chaos and even simple change.
Thom keeps sounding off that president Obama is getting less funds from Wall street and the financial sector than Mitt Romney is but he should check the Washington Post today (10/20/11) and their article showing how Obama IS still way ahead of all the republicans COMBINED when it comes to monitary contributions from the financial sector - he is still in the pockets of Wall Street and will always be (I'm afraid to say).
Just a correction to something Thom said today, that Saddam Hussein was (accidentally) decapitated during his hanging. Not true, though an easy mistake to make. It was Saddam's half brother, Barzan al Tikriti, who "lost it" that way. See:
(Randi Rhodes made the same error back in August.)
