What Our TV Says About Us

In Australia, their police drama currently is Cops L.A.C. (Local Area Command), in Britain it is Law & Order UK. In Canada the popular police procedural is Flashpoint, while in the United States, the one that jumps out is NCIS Los Angeles.

What is consistant about all four of these dramas is the underlying philosophy. We are the good guys, they are the bad guys. It is our mission to get them in their place by any means necessary, including killing them. All four of these dramas have killed bad guys.

Who Hit Hoffa

To be explained using the Shevell Asssociated Transport and Eastern Freight Ways connection to North American Van Lines in 1966 when the Kryder Estate disappeared, and who influenced Hoffa in the assembly of, and decimation of, the Central States Teamsters Pension funds, as compared with the crashing of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers Trust in 1930. Also to be explained are Kryder assets at stake when Hoffa was declared legally dead 7/30/1982.

But first, the scene of the crime- the restaurant where Hoffa's abandoned car was found in 1975:

Who Threw the Rocks & Bottles at Oakland Police?

I'm pretty sure I know who threw the rocks and bottles at the Oakland "Police" during the OWS demonstration. My guess is that the "police" were partly made up of the CIA/ FBI. I would bet that a CIA operative threw the rocks and bottles (if any were thrown); the FBI looked on and knew what was happening, just like they both did in the assassination (Murder?/Coup d' etat is a better word) of our sitting, duly elected President, John F.

Progressives that belong to the Democrat Party are just Democrats! GIVE ME A THIRD PARTY !

If you're republican you are not even relevant.

If your democrat forget it!

If you're a Democrat that calls yourself Progressive forget it!

And if you even so much as caucus with the Democrats you can forget it and that goes for you Tammy Baldwin of the Green Party.

NO MORE, NEVER AGAIN!

ITS LEGITIMATE THIRD PARTY OR BUST FROM HERE ON OUT!!

A (stupid?) question...

Loved your show today...

I was wondering if you had any information on Occupy Lansing, MI? My friends and I can't go there (too far-we live near the Ohio border) but are interested in sending food or supplies to the occupiers...send the info to pj12161@hotmail.com

thanks in advance

Sorry PCCC, There is no such thing as a "bold progressive" that belongs to the Democratic Party.

A Progressive that belongs to the Democratic Party is just another run of the mill filthy democrat co-opting the "progressive" label for marketing purposes. The fact that PCCC lets themselves interviewed by the Ed Schultz show proves they're fake progressives.

Hey Thom, Forgot To Mention That JP Morgan/Chase CEO Jamie Dimon Will Be Visiting Seattle Nov 2! I Think There Will Be A Picket

Yes, Thom thanks for letting me give an update from Occupy Seattle! I forgot to mention that Chase CEO Jamie Dimon (Better Known As "Mr. Diamond") will be in Seattle on November 2nd - next Wednesday. i am sure that folks will gather outside the hotel where he is speaking and hold signs like, "Where's My Bail Out Mr. Diamond?" and "Tax The Rich!".

Inspection- Of Corporations and Incentive

So simple.

So hard for them to understand.

THIS is why people are Occupying Everywhere

This video is a real hearbreaker. Juxtaposing the approving statements of our government regarding the Egyptians who used nonviolent protest to make positive change in their government with the negative statements and brutal violence Americans are met with when doing the exact same thing. It really is the textbook definition of Fascism: the corporate control of government. Every time it has been tried it has failed spectacularly, but not always bloodily. As Thom said, it is the cancer stage of capitalism.

Supreme Court Decisions lead to our current Kleptocracy just, as much as our Politicians reaction’s to those decisions – both are equally to blame.

There are plenty of things you can do in American society that are legal but I choose not to do because of my values, ethics and general sense of right and wrong.

What Do Democrats Really Want?

Thom plus logo Thomas Friedman, the confused billionaire, told us decades ago that "free trade" is what made the Lexus a successful product when, in fact, it was decades of Japanese government subsidies and explicit tariffs that did so.
