DECLARATION OF WAR

DECLARATION OF WAR

The declaration of war is the tyrants' delight.

It takes their power to its great height.

To find new enemies, the tyrant endeavors.

It gives access to steal America's treasures.

International criminals, past leaders are labeled.

Obama's NCAA picks

Last week the media and politicos made a big stink about President Obama “wasting time” on his NCAA bracket selections. Not to take a play from Mike Huckabee, but I think if we take a closer look at where President Obama came from we can how his background, heritage and upbringing may have affected his decision making.

Kate Chooses Rolls Royce

While much of the world is looking down a smoking gun, pondering a nuclear waste meltdown, as millions are homeless, bewildered, grieving and starving, Kate Middleday is having the Rolls polished for her historic drive to Westminster Abbey, which at 1 million per missile fired, should not be too costly in the long run.

You call this a Democracy?

Not only did Obama declare war on another country without the approval of our Congress but he did it from another country, not the United States of America. He could have at least had enough respect for our U.S. CONSTITUTION to declare war from the White House. I say impeach him, he is a fraud. I do not believe the lies that dropping bombs on another country is just enforcing a no fly zone. B.S. that is not true. If Obama can continue to be allowed to do whatever he wants then what we have here in America is a dictatorship and Democracy is dead.

Enrico Fermi Meltdown

Unit No. 1 of the Enrico Fermi Nuclear Generating Station suffered a partial fuel meltdown on October 5, 1966. This plant is midway between Detroit, MI and Toledo, OH. Supposedly there was no release of radioactive material. (Who was checking back then?) This fact rarely gets included in the list of nuclear accidents in the US. I haven't seen it mentioned yet in the main stream media. By the way, Fermi 2 is a GE boiling water reactor opened in January 1988.

What happened to fair, balanced news?

Remember the Aesop Fable?

It goes like this; a wolf comes upon a lamb and they have a breif conversation before the wolf then proceeds to eat the lamb. After having no good reason to eat the lamb because all of the wolf's imputations had been meet, the wolf concedes that he has no good reason to attack, yet commits the act anyway. The famous quote being: "A tyrant will always find a pretext for his tyranny".

What do Conservatives want?

I have never been politically active other than watching the news and voting but recent events have caused me to want to become more active. When I see my country being slowly taken control of by billionaires and large multinational corporations it deeply concerns me.

... and the poor shall NOT carry cash.

Unbelievably harsh and soul-less from the rabid Cons, even in these fascist times:

Why we should support the no-fly zone over Libya

First, a little history: In 1801 President Thomas Jefferson sent a squadron of frigates to attack the Pasha of Tripoli with the objective of forcing him to sign a peace treaty that would end the ransom of U.S. ships and crews. He did it without a declaration of war, and before notifying Congress of his action. (Tripoli - how ironic is that?)

It's a Man's World

The question being, how did men get the idea to batter each other in boxing rings for sport? What kind of bets are being laid now, with our five U.S. battleships in place, and three vessels of Great Britain fencing off the coast of Libya? Hello, CDR? is this Cayman Islands? I have written a little War Prayer of Thanks for you to chant with your brandies.

MSNBC as a Gatekeeper and myth...and cut CPB, PBS and NPR loose as they are another myth...

Many of us in the progressive community fondly look at MSNBC with Rachel Maddow and Shcultzie...and a while back-Keith Olberman...as representing the "left" on-air TV news-opinion. And likewise, progressives and lefties actually think that the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, the Pubic Broacasting System and National Public Radio actually represent some reasonable form of "public broadcasting"...and in some minor ways, both positions are true.

Dear Robin,

Jobs: The Problem Government Doesn't Want to Solve

Most news stories these days are framed around the word "jobs". Political parties make their cases couched in phrases such as "job killing" or "job creation". They tell us unemployment is a persistent problem that will take years to solve. The truth is: they don't want to solve unemployment.

The world we're leaving for today's teens...

Without immediate global action on climate change, today's teenagers will be forced to live with the consequences of our inaction. The World Bank has issued their third report of climate change, and it says that global temperatures could rise by as much as 4 degrees Celsius by the time today's teens hit their 80th birthday.
