Pentagon Papers redux...

I have concluded [written here some time ago] that the Pentagon has completed its task of establishing "Full Spectrum Dominance"...aka...control, influence and presence in the world's Militarization Pyramid...[atop of which the five sided building surely sits], therefore, there is no longer any need to stay in either Iraq nor Afghanistan in a big "boots-on-the-ground" footprint.

Hertiage Foundation Rep LIED about the Steven Chu's quote about gas prices

Hertiage Foundation Rep LIED about the Steven Chu's quote about raising gas prices to the levels in Europe. He said that Chu repeated the desire to raise the price of gas to European levels *yesterday*... this was not true.

The actually quote was from 2008 and taken out of context. Poitico reposted the quote last week [Feb 212012,] and it was picked up and plastered over all the Conservative Blogshere.

No one is going to call them on this... it is a shame.



I need socio-economic statistics.

I am currently researching statistics that break down American economic strata. Along the lines of what % of population earns what wealth relative to GDP/taxes paid and any associated info. I have an idea for a PSA. I have been to the census site but it's almost as difficult to interpret as the bible.

Isn't It Ironic?

The food stamp program, part of the Department of Agriculture, is pleased to be distributing the greatest amount of food stamps ever. Meanwhile, the Park Service, also part of the Department of Agriculture, asks us to “please do not feed the animals” because the animals may grow dependent and not learn to take care of themselves.

Recently there was some lively debate among this site's members about gay marriage following the decision by the Ninth Curcuit Court of Appeals to uphold a previous ruling by District Court Judge Vaughn Walker which had found California's Proposition 8 to be unconstitutional.

The Walsh attack...on Alyona

I just saw Alyona's rebuttal to the Walsh attacks. She will be attacked by the right-wing the more she exposes their true agenda of bringing authoritarianism to the United States.

Photos and videos from InsideOutOccupy Oakland

The video link is a compostion of other portraits and their statements. The second link introduces the project.

Republicans Don't Want To Answer Questions

During a heated confirmation hearing on Capitol Hill last week, Georgia Congressman Tom Price - Donald Trump's pick for Secretary of Health and Human Services - refused to say whether or not he would support cuts to Medicare and Medicaid.
