Time for Progressives to MoveOn from MoveOn...

I am anti-war and pro-Palestinian...period!

MoveOn.org is pro-war and anti-Palestinian...period!

If anyone on the left has any lingering doubts that MoveOn.org remains pro-war and anti-Palestinian/pro-Israel, then the past week's conduct by MoveOn.org should firmly inform you.

You know MoveOn.org?... its AIPAC's first "grassroots" web-world adventure that AIPAC quietly put together to get out front of the wave of on-line organized activism that was soon to surge across the country...the USofA that is...

Nuclear Energy and the "Free(?) Market"

Two things that we all know the Rethuglicans are TOTALLY in favor of are Nuclear Energy and the allegedly "free" market" - you know, the (non-existent) market that the government keeps it's hands out of, and is allowed to be controlled only by the "invisible hand" of market forces.

Well then, it seems to me that we perhaps ought to examine the relationship between these 2 things that our esteemed conservative representatives are SOOOOO in favor of - do they work and play well together? NO, THEY DO NOT!!

Reduction of corporate influence in Washington

I have an idea to reduce the corporate influence in Washington. How about taxing political contributions at the top marginal rate? The funds generated could be dedicated to education or health care in the politicians home state or even district.

Manning's Quantico Torture

Anyone who thinks Bradley Manning is a traitor is apparently not familiar with the Uniform Code of Military Justice. The UCMJ not only requires soldiers to refuse illegal orders, but also that evidence of crimes must be reported. For the act of honoring his oath and truly serving his country by leaking evidence of war crimes, Bradley Manning has been rewarded with solitary confinement at Quantico.

Cutting Welfare Spending (The "Red Herring"!)

SO many people bash "Welfare" spending that I thought I'd do a very simple exercise. All it takes is an Almanac and a calculator...

Michael Moore condemns Obama for attack on Lybia

Deja vu? He's putting Obama in the same category with Bush. Blood for oil? Or because it's Obama it's for a different reason? NOT!!! Hypocrites!!

Inspection- When We Are the Enemy

Is Mike Tyson from Planet Zenu?

Mike Tyson raises and races robot pigeons. See Video.

Premiere On Call

Beck, Limbaugh and Hanity have actors call into their show pretending to be articulate listeners becaues their base is comprised of brain dead mouth breathing rednecks. I heard this on Howard Stern and googled it. Here is a link to story.

1, 2, 3, SCREAM! Jim DeMint's Theory Of Relativity

There is only one word to describe this lunacy... SCREAM!

'The Bigger Government Gets, The Smaller God Gets'

What Happened in Madison CANNOT STAY in Madison...

After attending yet another "Peace March" in downtown Seattle this past Saturday...and after watching the gathering literally march in circles ending up back in the same place doing the SAME things...a repost of CI...Civil Informationing is demanded.

No, I didn't march the entire route with them. I stopped at Pike Street Market and bannered and CI-ed in front of about 2000 people as the march walked all around to nowhere. BTW, my bannering was seen by TEN TIMES more people than their entire march event was seen by...

The roots of the White House's "Little People" Comment

The following excerpt if from an interview with Lloyd Blankfein head of Goldman Sachs (“Government Sachs”) published in the “Times” (London) after the financial collapse. When you read it think of what it has to say about the corporate culture the White House chooses to steep itself in. And maybe you’ll understand the Obama Administration’s use of the expression “little people.

110 cruse missiles fired at Libya. There goes $110,000,000 dollars!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The current breed of cruse missile cost about $1.1 million each. This is simple math. The more difficult math is the replacement cost of these weapons. A new generation of cruse Missile is projected to cost only $600,000.

WHAT A BARGAIN!

I guess that you could argue that this is a stimulation for good American Aerospace Union jobs, but it is difficult to actually find out where the parts are made. We assume that they are made in the U.S. But who knows.

Japanese Government acting like Obama on amount of Oil BP spilled

The White House sent “experts” to help with Japan’s nuclear crisis all right.

A is for Atom - Adam Curtis

One of the best things I have seen regarding Nuclear Power in the early years.

The Middle Class Needs More Than Talking Points

Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle have been talking a lot about the middle class. But, that talk is cheap as long as their in bed with Wall Street.
