Armored Car - Without Penis?

whale imagesU.S. President Barack Obama and other world leaders are now supporting delaying a legally binding climate pact until 2010 or even later, under a compromise deal for next month's Copenhagen summit. Instead, in Copenhagen, diplomats will aim to reach a less aggressive — and much less specific — "politically binding" agreement, with the hope that hard numbers and legal obligations to reduce climate change would be added soon, in a two-step approach.

From Screwed:
"Hartmann speaks with the straight talking clarity and brilliance of a modern day Tom Paine as he exposes the intentional and systematic destruction of America’s middle class by an alliance of political con artists and outlines a program to restore it.
