Global Warming and Economic Prosperity

Sadly, Bernie didn't hit the nail on the head with this caller's question and in this case both the anvil and head are very large. The answer is we have to start paying the true cost for goods and services. Everything has a cost and we cannot afford these short cuts any longer. Costs associated with green production will be more expensive, but we will learn to CONSERVE, recycle and repurpose in response.

Natural Citizen-ship

Top ten list of why the 99% will win:

Koch-Cain: We will Lie, we will lie...

To the Tune of Clapton's "Cocain"

If you're one of the poor, then the fault is all yours; Koch-Cain

If your bank is full, gonna love our rule; Koch-Cain

We will lie, we will lie, we will lie; Koch-Cain

Moral Hazard

Accepting the premise that our system of paper money encourages sociopathy, or selfish narcissim, I spent the morning offering a vision of change:

Technology in our current enviroment is used to create a personal credit system. This system is simply a oerson to person exchange.
When a person does a service for another they exchange a credit. This credit is a physical exchange between devices (smartphones) and is structured in such a way that the two devices have to be in contact while exchange data is processed. Other rules will be needed so spend some time and see what you can add.

Getting better still.

Not only has has the occupy movement caused the narritive to change, but even conservitaves & members of the wealthy are saying things like:

1. Banking did consumers wrong. 2. Labor (esp. manufacturing) has been shortchanged over the past few decades & 3. We (the rich) could pay more taxes.

Obama Stimulus Pays $3.2 Billion In Tax Credits Incorrectly

The report by the Treasury Department's inspector general for taxes found that for the first five months of 2010, $2.6 billion went to 1.7 million taxpayers for students for whom the IRS lacked documents showing that they attended school.

Another $550 million went to 371,000 taxpayers for students who didn't qualify because they didn't attend school long enough or were graduate students.

This idiotic move deserves a double post. Car Company Gets U.S. Loan, Builds Cars In Finland

With the approval of the Obama administration, an electric car company that received a $529 million federal government loan guarantee is assembling its first line of cars in Finland, saying it could not find a facility in the United States capable of doing the work.

Obama uses Taxpayer Dollars to Fund exporting Fisker electric car jobs to Finland.

I am so over this guy. Just hearing his voice makes me react like i just chipped a tooth.

How's that Pipe dream of a "Jesse Ticket" (jackson/venture) for president in 2012 coming?

Ok Obama we get it, the Republicans are against the People, now stop the politics and make some secret loans direct to Main St!

Same old story - politics before the People, else Main St could be bathing right now in its own $16 Trillion in secret Fed Loans at 0% (that don't require Congressional approval)

Bad Car Karma

This is a great day for Magwire, ubiquitous conductor and world traveler, with the unveiling of "Karma-1," produced for the rich with an involuntary grant from the poor. It can now be meaningfully pointed out that Car-Kar rhymes with Jar-Jar (either Binks, or the Ball Foundation) and mimics the Caracara, or "Two-Faced Falcon," Fig. 47, Birds of the West Indies, First American Edition, James Bond, 1961.

Legalized Pot and The Post Office


I have an idea that could solve two problems. Legalize Pot and make it only available through the Post Office. Order it from The USPS and then they can deliver it. Two problems solved!!!
