CREDITS TO THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION
Even today, just lately, I've heard flippant remarks trying to defend the GOP record, comments about how George W. Bush compared to President Clinton, promoting the bumper sticker mentality that "W never lied".
Asking Diane Feinstein if she would limit First Amendment rights like she would the Second was the perfect opportunity for a great come back. While I appreciated her lecturing Cruz about not being lectured: something always needed when confronted with arrogant putzes, did I appreciate her apology latter? Not so much. Next time stand firm Diane. Stand firm.
But as far as the main course of this talking point drive crap fest, I feel like the smart kid in a less than Z tracked elementary school class… “-Z” because they ran out of letters the rest of the class was so dense…. you know: the “smart kid” who never gets chosen despite raising his hand and saying, “Pick me! Pick me!”

This movie charts the rise of the Corporate State, and examines the future of obedience in a world of unfettered capitalism, globalization, staggering inequality, environmental change combined with intellectual and cultural debasement.
The Senate Judiciary Committee has passed gun restrictions but not without contentious exchange, particularly between Senator Ted Cruz TX and Senator Feinstein CA and it is on the Cruz argument that I would comment.
Senator Cruz, made a Bill of Rights argument against banning assault rifles
In so doing, Senator Cruz presented a reprehensible argument; it was crude, demeaning and callously insensitive.
Abdoulhassan Bani-Sadr has been saying that the American Elections were rigged by an Agreement since 1991 which is why his pronouncement on Argo were not news. There are two books on the subject., one by Barbara Honegger, the other by Gary Sick Historically the stakes could not have been higher. Hubert Humphrey could have passed the original version of the Humphrey-Hawkins bill which made it an obligation of the Federal Government to quote an article on the subject.
A Capital Idea Part 153: Energy is Everywhere
I am now beginning a discussion of the brilliant future of energy. Due to time considerations and the massive amounts of potential materials on the topic, about most of which I do not know very much in a technical sense, I have decided to proceed in several installments.

This type of corrupt federal auction legislation is vaguely reminiscent of what Brazil recently enacted to auction off is oil deposits.
How much of the commons are the People expected to sacrifice to give the oil and gas industry there profits? Why is the oil and gas industry even relevant when we are plunging into horrific climate collapse? Scarcity of fresh potable water is skyrocketing as it is without contaminating it and using it in production of New Technology carbon based fuels? Has the President lost his mind?
Obama bypasses Environmental Review to achieve Walker’esque fast-track approval of infrastructure project intended to help$$$ Fracking.
First let me say, we are witnessing perhaps the final fatal error in mankind’s struggle to exist into relative perpetuity and that is a craven morally bankrupt president choosing to turn the country over to the Oil and Gas Industry when he should have turned it over to the Solar and Wind energy industry.
Republicans win at framing all the time. They also worship Ronald Reagan. Reagan said concering the Soviets, "trust but verify". We need to start talking about regulations in this context. I trust that companies will provide safe food, medicines and other products but we need to "verify" that they do so. How can anyone be against verifyiing products are what they say they are suposed to be. It is getting what you pay for.
