Enivornment Under Attack: Irresponsible drilling in Utah's Desolation Canyon.

A Colorado-based gas company is proposing a project to drill 222 gas wells in Utah's Desolation Canyon. The Bureau of Land Management has evaluated a safer plan that would require directional drilling to minimize impacts to wild lands. This would be good news, except that they are proposing NOT to adopt that plan. Native American Cultural artifacts are at stake.

British government begins stealing its peoples’ bank deposits ahead of the global financial collapse.

It happened before and it is starting again. Government confiscating (stealing) the people’s life savings. Just like in 1929 the British government began its theft of the people’s life savings just before the Great Depression. After an inflationary run-up in prices and asset values, the stock market crashed in 1929, and the economy soon went with the crash. This time the British government is disguising its outright theft by claiming the entire contents of safety deposit banks are owned by criminals and the contents are the proceeds of crimes.

Wisconsin recall attempt

Way back in the mid 80's when I was still working in Iowa politics, top Dems were pontificating the idea that all we needed were the big donors to win elections. Just big donors, forget or at least minimize all this silly grassroots work. Slippery slope. And so a shift which had long been in the making flashed forward and Dems became Hollywood idols and made themselves with the CA money not to be ignored by the corporate sector. And here we are today with Dems competitive in the money raising.....and beholding to the donors as well.

US Crisis of Leadership: You don’t compromise with Crazies who insist on feeding you poison.

What's to compromise is such situation?! “Maybe, say, well, uhm, not outright death but perhaps just a week's worth of barfing and maybe some hair loss?! Huh? How about it John? Mitch, how about you?

tea party should be tried for treasonous acts

Thom i totally agrer with the woman that called in and said the tea partiers should be charged with treason, though you say its not possible, they should be held accountable for their actions, as in the military our kids who are willing to give their lives for us can get charged for underage drinking and pay a price by losing rank,money, and be restricted, and in some cases lose their career, these tea partiers should forfeit all of their pay for insubordination to the commander and chief and given dishonorable discharges from their posts for the harm they are causing our government.

Citizen's United?

It seems in all of this that the really sad truth is not so much that the Supreme Court has decided that corporations can throw lots of money at elections in this country, as sad and disgusting as that is, but rather that those corporations get so much for what they do spend. Which brings to mind the thought that while censorship on it's face is not something to be used in a democratic system that values debate, it is perhaps worth talking about the dissemination of outright lies.

I don't get it.

On Saturday, I was at a family reunion when I heard a woman named Jackie ranting about "Obama took the Flags down in the Oval Office".

I immediately went to talk to her.

She insisted it was true, that Obama had put up "Islamic" banners in place of the Flag.

I told her "That's an outright LIE".

And I was not shy about speaking out; I'm sure everybody there heard me.

She insisted "it's true !" She'd heard it on the "news".

I asked her if she knew what PhotoShop was. She said "yes".

Debt Committee

I just contacted my Senators in VA and Harry Redi to ask them to pressure Max Baucus to resign from the Committee. He will be a true disaster and give in to the Republicans. This is Corporate anarchy.

Where were the Federal Marshalls last night?

I don't mean to be critical or negative here, but I have to ask a question:

Setting: I was watching the Ed Show last night, enjoying the election results until Ed Schultz gave a bulletin to the effect that one precinct was over and hour later than almost every other precinct, the same Whackamole County (or whatever) home of the same Queen Katherine that magically "found" fifteen thousand votes in the Prosser election recently, then they discuss her long history of election crimes.

401k

I have asked New York Life do they make campaign contributions. The question was asked about a year ago. Last week I received a phone call from New York Life the employee stated I noticed you placed a call about one year ago and the box has not been checked did you get your question answered? The question is since New York Life makes a profit for the 401K accounts of U. A.

Trying to Slay the Citizens United Dragon

If you think the insanity of money spent on political races is at an all time high, you are correct. In the wake of the Citizens United Supreme Court ruling, many believed that the unlimited amount of money pouring into political campaigns would be “over the top.” But even those “in the know” are finding the spending frenzy amazing.

What is the End Game with this sort of Weather Manipulation? Starvation?

Denial and programming, is that why most people do not witness the sky.

Random Notes:

Wisconsin’s elections were surely corrupted by their voting systems. Why do the democrats allow this? $$$$$ I call signing statements for campaign cash outright bribery.

NPR Needs To Clean Up Their House

What happens when the news media stops covering news objectively - and instead becomes a source of very specific opinions that serve a very narrow agenda?

For example - in the case of the democratic primary - consider the news coverage of the mere possibility of Vice President Joe Biden challenging Hillary Clinton for the Democratic Party's nomination for president.
