I just finished the Channel 4 documentary Sri Lanka's Killing Fields, which gives gruesome details regarding war crimes committed in the Sri Lankan civil war. The documentary only covers the last couple years of the decades long conflict, so check the wikipedia articles below for background information. The documentary is extremely graphic, so viewer discression is advised. The links I provided are temporary and will be down within the next few days.

MADISON, Wis. – A divided Wisconsin Supreme Court handed Republican Gov. Scott Walker a major victory Tuesday, ruling that a polarizing union law that strips most public employees of their collective bargaining rights could take effect.
This does not portend well in times of earthquakes and things of this Nature.
Family that lost eight children in march of 2005 to the corporations that Thom Hartman seems to support. Reason they dont need any.
just statements made in the media about one child being burned by his parents and nothen about what they are doing.
In Berkeley and Oakland I have been organizing "Neighborhood Vegetables." Most weekends we have at least one "garden work party." Ten or fifteen people gather in someone's front or backyard garden and help them do whatever they need to grow food.
When the Righties squark about unemployment today the lack of memory of the Reagan years, just like they ignore Sen. Vitters escapades. Lets remember that Reagan had an economy that produced products, workers had Unions, Corporations where not considered People, Corporations actually PAID TAXES, and Automation had not been fully integrated into the manufacturing process. As a point of reference to those times the World did not have a its 10 Million user until 1990. Reagan's unemployment figures by 1984 had dropped from a high of 10.8 to 8.0% in time for the elections.
Thom, recent changes in voter laws in Republican controlled states will requirer goverment issued photo ID's and other obstacles, that make it more difficult if not impossible for some people to cast a ballot. In the case of seniors, many of whom don't have a state drivers license, may lose their voting rights. This is the the most reliable group of voters that Republicans can count on. Could this disenfranchasing of voters backfire and cost conservatives elections. What is your opinion?
