Rising gas prices about Iran? Nah! Kochheads? Well.....yeah!

We just reposted this piece from Think Progress onto our Occupy the Airwaves blog:

"While much of the attention on oil speculators has rested on the backs of investors and commodity traders, the petrochemical conglomerate Koch Industries occupies a unique role in manipulating the oil market. Koch has little business in the extraction process...."

I'm not making this up: Klu Klux Klan suggests predominately African American town of Forest Grove, LA welcome Nuclear dump.

Its too weird to make up. The following is yet another excerpt from Greg Palast’s book “Vultures’ Picnic” regarding Obama’s darling Nuclear Industry.

Madison, WI: Novovirus “scare” results in Polling Place being moved last minute from the Jefferson into Blackhawk Evangelical Church.

The Polling Place at HighPoint Christian Mega Church remains unaffected.

And of course, no-one means for there to be any voter intimidation as

Another major bridge failure in Minnesota

It appears we will need more Government money to replace this work of art that lasted just five years before the major failure. This time it must be the fault of Gov. Mark Dayton.

Texas Senator setting up meeting with Thai woman, or just being friendly?

An hour ago, I was walking back to the hostel, where I am staying, in Bangkok. Two women approached my and asked where I was from. I told them, from the Unites States. Then the one less shy of the two told me she knows an american senator. Oh, I said? to make a long story short, she told me that she was talking to a Texas senator named Robert for the past seven months. I tried getting his last name, but her english not great.

ENDGAME

It is time for the voters to come up with the universal characteristics of a presidential candidate

This is in addition to what the United States Constitution requires for qualifications of a president. The candidate must held an office in the united states system of government somewhere(village council to vice president). The candidate must not be an attorney (unless the attorney has a significant history of successful representation as a public defender). The candidate must not be from an ivy league college. The candidate must have s

Whack-a-doodle anti-women's rights righties!

As I posted about a week ago, Santorum and Palin are not good exemplars of family planning, both of them having their last child affected by chromosomal abnormalities. Sarah's son has Trisomy 21 and Rick's daughter has Trisomy 18. Both of these are very limiting, with Trisomy 18 being much more limiting.

"The Age of Gold"

"The no-fault ethos of the new era was hardly an unmitigated blessing. The age of gold was also the age of speculation, corruption, and consolidation on a scale unimaginable before Coloma (area where Sutter's mill was located). Traders in mining shares, in rail stocks, in gold itself colluded to drive prices up or down, and frequently purchased the cooperation of journalists and government officials to abet their schemes.

Iran banning countries from buying its Oil will not shrink the Global Supply of Oil making it to market.

Iran is not going to sit there and point at a growing pile of unsold Oil that would otherwise have gone to a banned country and say “I don’t care how long it takes!

It’s Official: Now at +11 Degrees F. We are facing a beyond catastrophic failure in the Planet’s atmospheric systems.

The International Energy Agency (IEA) says to fully expect 11 degrees F increase in Global Temps. An +11 Degree F trajectory puts the start of severe catastrophic environmental chaos as early as 2015 and as late as 2030. The Washington/1% nexus has determined that Carbon Sequestration – paid by the 99% - while be the only option.

HELP!

I just opened up a debate with two Fox fans in my family & I got my ass beat(verbally). I had previously emailed them defending "occupy" & asking why is the word Union a cuss word & why is the word protectionism a cuss word. Well we went to a restaurant after church & I asked for it. I said that a clock puncher cant find a better investment than union dues. They jumped into my case about how horrible teacher unions are & how the occupy crowd crapped here & there & how wonderful the tea party was.

Pipeline

We already have a pipeline. The pipeline to the Gulf is to allow route to WorldMarket. Right now it is landlocked. This needs to be brought out.

We will get none of the oil.
