DEMAND additional REVENUE out of the 10% in the Debt Ceiling talks.

And don’t forget to extract additional revenue out of their Corporations as well.

What do you think about it. The Hilary Clinton issue

Dr. Mehment Oz works at New York-Presbyterian Hospital in New York City. Do you think Hilary Clinton (who went their) will say that Dr. Oz treated her to score points for creditability that she actually had a problem.

Can some help me?

Does anyone know if this fiscal cliff agreement offers any jobs programs for the 23 million people out of work? It seems the progressives and liberals are bragging about this agreement offers aid as to unemployment payments that really need it. My guess is this agreement is that second stimulus bill the President wanted to “jump start” the economy again.

Where is the Press?

I read just yesterday that Sean Hannity had lost some listeners on the FOX channel durning the last election in Nov. 2012 a couple months ago. Every blog and media outlet reported it , Gosh it took that long to report it. But if you notice hardly any coverage took place when Ed Schultz took to task on Laura Ingram when he did her. And did the NOW Crowd help Laura then?

Random thoughts on Tarantino's 'Django...'

Thom addressed the movie in his 1/2/2013 show. I appreciated his incite that the 'laughs' were timed to serve as release for the emotional tension built up by the intensity of the scenes in the movie. If that was the moviemaker's intention, it could be the only kind thing Tarantino does for his audiences -- that is, help them to develop the psychological defense of laughter as a means of dealing with trauma and abuse in an unjust world.

Still, I find some things troubling about Tarantino's new Django Unchained. Just a few thoughts here:

Occupy Steubenville

I desperately plead for someone in national media to talk about the incident involving Steubenville, Ohio football players and an alleged rape.

There is a ton of disturbing evidence that needs to be investigated.

The Smell of Burning Flesh

I mentioned in a comment to another blog that people become accustomed to the smell of burning flesh. These web pages might clarify what I wanted to put across. I warn you, though, the item under Syrian bombing may stay with you forever. View the video with caution and with no children present.

NDAA and Ice Cream...

These are updates on NDAA , something that might be almost as important to you as a discussion of ice cream flavors:

SEC Fails to Link Madoff, Rothstein, AIC Ponzis

Why has the SEC failed to link the Madoff, Rothstein, AIC, Inc., and Marcus Schrenker cases as part of the same operation? Because the source of the seed capital is being protected. The case common element is North American Properties, Inc. and North American Van Lines which have enjoyed access by stealth to the securities of Kryder and others since 1950.

How does a massive multi-million or billion dollar Ponzi get started?

1. Seed capital is provided to a securities broker.

"The Saddest Thing Is This Won't Be Breaking News"

Thom plus logo As the world burns, and more and more fossil fuels are being used every day planet-wide, atmospheric carbon dioxide levels passed 416 ppm this week at the Mauna Loa Observatory in Hawaii. In the 300,000 years since the emergence of modern humans, carbon dioxide levels have never been this high.
