Rich Miami Teens Destroy Grand Piano for Fun

A once beautiful grand piano was set on fire by drunk teenagers at a New Years Eve party and later toted by an expensive boat to a sand bar in Biscayne Bay where it has become a news item and tourist attraction of the last two days. Many people claimed responsibility for the prank, including one man and wife who had the nerve to say in a national interview before news cameras that together they had pulled it off.


That's all I really have to say. I just finished reading the first 11 chapters of "Rebooting The American Dream" on, and all I can say is wow. Every word is spot-on. Actually, I bought the book a while ago, but before I had a chance to get through it I lost my job, and apartment. Unfortunately the book now sits in a storage unit in Cleveland, OH while I live in a weekly hotel in Hendersonville, TN just to find work.

Worlds Happiest Countries story

Not sure if you have seen the story which I think was originally in Forbes about worlds happiest countries. Here is link--


It appears the blogger, Zenzoe, has been denied access to the Thom Hartmann Community. I am outraged. Rarely does one find such intelligence, humor, and insight combined in such an honest way. That such a one should be banned from a progressive site is ludicrous. Certainly this decision is not made arbitrarily by one person? I appeal to your sense of decency and fairness.

The Collapse of Capitalism, Part One: Planned Obsolescence

by Phil Polizatto | WWH-I have always believed that Capitalism is doomed to fail. Well, actually, I guess there are a few who think it’s a great success and the cat’s meow and all that, but if anyone thinks it is meant to be a system that satisfies people’s basic needs, it is a miserable failure.

Response to the Holocene Mass Extinction - Obama's disgrace

The average annual number of species protected by the Clinton Administration = 65

The average annual number of species protected by the G.H.W. "Human Filth" Bush Administration = 58

The average annual number of species protected by the Obama Administration = 26

The number of species stuck on the "candidate" waiting list for Endangered Species Act Protection even though the Obama$$$ Administration admits they could go extinct there = 254

The number of species that have gone extinct after being listed as a "candidate" = 24

Shame on you Obama$$$

A Capital Idea Part 54: They Call it Advertising

Today's post is more about labels than anything else. I have recently called for restrictions on advertising and lobbying already. I think this is a good time to examine the memes being used by society and how these memes are being used to mislead us.

Concerning math and science education K-12

There doesn't seem to be much controversy as to whether there should be a major upgrade in math and science education. The STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) initiative is a positive goal begging the question of how?

Helpers of the Muckleshoots

I see that certain tribes were deliberately forced from their trades, fishing, ranching, hunting, and agriculture into the casino business. This was done by industrial engineering, draining, mining and agriculture which polluted the ecosystems which were supposed to sustain the reserved lands.

Freaky Flying Objects_VOL1 January 24-25, 2011

Here we have the first installment of FREAKY FLYING OBJECTS_VOL1 January 24-25, 2011. If you get up early before sunrise if the sky is clear, you too can witness FREAKY FLYING OBJECTS! It's easy, just go OUTSIDE and watch the sky!

OK, #1 is an early morning 5 second shot of what leaves those chemtrails.

#2 is a DAYTIME shot with the sun behind the trees with just objects, not really freaky and I can't tell if they were moving or not.

The GOP war on workers has killed again...

It’s time to stop the conservative's war on working people in America.

Since the birth of our nation, conservatives have always been wary of average working-class Americans having too much political or economic power. John Adams, the second President of the United States and a Federalist (precursor to today’s Republicans), was very wary of the working class, which he referred to as “the rabble.”
