This week on my radio show I had an opportunity to interview Mark Karlin of Buzzflash and Truthout about Medicare. As always, Mark makes some brilliant points. This is definitely worth a listen
The most honorable thing all 535 members of Congress can do is to resign--as a body. As a body, Congress is corrupt, decrepit, sclerotic, bureaucratic, self-obsessed, and in some cases unpatriotic in concerns for one's own welfare instead of the country's. Yes, we would lose a few good representatives of the people--notably Bernie Sanders--but the tradeoff would be worth it.
Next, scrap the tax code in its entirety. A new code could not be worse than the current 16,000-page, 3.8 million word tax code--that's 840 Constitutions long!
There is new data out that says Mecca and Jerusalem are very ancient.
A series of papers shows that just like there is Pyramids all over the world (Japan, China, Egypt, Peru, Mexico etc) there is a series of alignment centers in Peru (Nazca) Scotland, Russia and Australia.
It even mentions Caral, Peru
The author plotted the lines and found they all point towards each other......and to an ancient star map that overlaps Mecca.
It seems to link everything together. Religious sites, myths and legends, Locations of early cities, Linguistic studies.....

The nuclear fuel rods in the No. 1 reactor of the crippled Fukushima nuclear power plant reactor have suffered at least a partial meltdown, the fuel rods have at least partially melted and fallen to the bottom of the reactor. So it can be said the No. 1 reactor is in a state of meltdown.
In the following link, which I found at demandside's "Thomas Paine and Noam Chomsky", Chomsky refers to "state capitalism" as a form of political economy enjoyed by the United States during the era following the New Deal.
During the 1950s this system changed under Eisenhower – if only for about 10 years.
In 1954, Ike appointed retired Gen. Joseph "Jumpin' Joe" Swing, a former West Point classmate and veteran of the 101st Airborne, as the new INS commissioner. The INS chased down hundreds of thousands of illegal mexicans.

Turtles have existed for 220 million years – once roaming the Earth with dinosaurs. Today, half of all turtle and tortoise species are at risk of extinction. Illegal hunting for human consumption, the pet trade, and use in traditional Asian medicines are ravaging their numbers. In Madison, Wisconsin a homeless shelter recently announced that it is now serving Turtle dinners.
