Too Dumb for Democracy?

Hey Thom: I caught part of the third hour of your show, Wednesday, 12/29/10. Who sang the song that accompanied your interview with the professor about Too Dumb for Democracy? Great song. You should post a link to it. Thanks for all you do keep the dialogue alive!

Indigenous Perspectives and Realities

Although I am a fan of Bernie Sanders, I was disappointed (though not surprised) that he could not answer the caller today who asked him to comment on Obama's having recently (Dec 16) signed the UN Declaration on Indigenous Rights, having been the last country on Earth to sign the 2007 document. I doubt if any of the congress men or women know about this because in essence it is a farcical gesture on the part of the U.S., sadly for all of us. The four countries that did not sign the declaration (Australia, New Zealand, U.S.

Health Care Rights?

The rights that Americans wisely cherish as being essential for a free society require only the refraining from action. Your right to speak freely requires me simply not to stop you from speaking; it does not require me to supply your megaphone.

Wounded Knee

Many Americans were disgusted with the massacre at Wounded Knee. The 7th cavalry was reaking revenge for their losses at the Little Big Horn. In an effort to make Wounded knee seem more like a battle than a massacre the government awarded 26 Congressional medals of Honor to troopers of the 7th Cavalry for their actions on that terrible day. It was and is shameful and those medals should be rescinded lest they lend another days tarnish to a sacred award.

Chris Hedges: An interesting literary observation

http://www.truthdig.com/report/item/2011_a_brave_new_dystopia_20101227/

Sorta like 1984 is a sequel to Brave New World. I get where Huxley was coming from in BNW (understanding his philosophy and theology.) George Orwell had breathtaking insight.

The times are changin': Philip Giraldi

Or, is the hypnotic hold of the Corporate Media, Entertainment of the Empire, so great over sleeping, unconscious America that the future will be dismal, more of the same? Is it becoming a battle of the obvious over the la-la land of the professional entertainers, with their empty rhetoric? They really have a major hold on the information and attitudes the people are given to work with.

The Disgrace Continues - Obama Appoints AIG Crony

In what can only be described as a slap in the face to every American who suffered from the over $9 Trillion dollar loss in homes values due to the financial chicanery of Bankster’s and Friends, Barac O’bama has appointed AIG “consultant” and crony James Cole to the office of Deputy Attorney General.

China and Iran will sink our aircraft carriers

It has long been suggested by opponents of the aircraft carrier that they are sinkable. The myth of the unsinkable aircraft carrier comes from the luck we had in the Pacific in WWII. Unlike the Japanese we lost no aircraft carriers after the Yorktown. It does not take a fancy new missle to knock one out. It only takes a torpedo or 2 from a sub that was hiding on the bottom long enough to get through the destroyer screen. That could probably be done by a non-nuke sub.

Forever Stamps

Your caller was wrong about a replacement of the forever stamps. The Post Office announced this month that all stamps are now forever stamps and 1 and 2 cent stamps will no longer be issued. Note that even some of the recent holiday stamps were also forever stamps.

The Gift of Ass Fault

"Open a new 2011 Cadillac, and give yourself the Gift of Ass Fault," said the commercial announcement on my cable-free television set of unknown manufacture.

People who are writing television script these days don't realize there are those in their audience who hear spoken words entirely in their literal sense. This has the effect of making what they are saying perfect sense in a Divine Comedy of horses asses. Had they been brilliant Madison Avenue ad geniuses, they would have had John Cleese do the voiceover.

The Real Carbon “Monster” Revealed

Another day, another stupid assault on the truth by the fossil fuel industry and its paid lackeys. In a recent op-ed for the New York Post, Tom Harris, the executive director of the so-called International Climate Science Coalition -- an organization that’s funded, in part, by the fossil fuel industry -- blasted Leonardo DiCaprio for his work on “Carbon,” a new documentary on climate change that I helped write and present.
