Manipulated: “Oil jumps after surprise U.S. supply decrease”

Whenever the Corporate Media$$$ offers an explanation about the movement in the price per barrel of oil, they are essentially telling you the reason given by a trader in the energy market. That is the same Energy Trader(s) whose trades will or have made the movement in the price.

I heard your show yesterday, where Chuck from Ky asked what your opinion would be to elect Members of Congress statewide, like Senators. Would that be better than the current gerrymandered districts?

It appears that The Constitution leaves it up to States to decide how to elect their Representatives, and most, if not all, have chosen to elect by districts. The problem with this, except in California, is that states controlled by Republicans have created districts through gerrymandering that insure a majority of Republicans.

shooting from the brain stem

Hello Thom, I'm listening on our local radio station in the afternoons (MAIN-FM). I have a thought about Darren Wilson's quote "...I felt like a five year old…" When a child is extremely angry, afraid or emotional they have less access to their thinking part of the brain and behave in the "survival" of the brain stem: Fight for your life. Yes, I believe Wilson felt like a 5 year old, he was being honest! Honest that his problem solving channels were shut down and that he did not have access to common sense as a police officer should!

WI: Walker's GOP preparing for progress on Right To Work Legislation.

And Walker is also introducing legislation to, and I quote, cut down on Fraud in Pubic Assistance Programs, like those filthy elderly swapping their winter time energy assistance check (it's like 12 degrees outside right now!) for cat food! (sarcasm)

I was wondering why I had slow internet responses, my speedtest said I was fine. Then I found this:

"By exempting speed tests from the throttling, T-Mobile is effectively preventing consumers from learning exactly how slow their throttled connections are. Under the new policy, T-Mobile customers who exceed their data caps will not be able to gauge the actual speeds available to them for the vast majority of their daily usage."

"T-Mobile responded by claiming that the carrier was only trying to help consumers by making speedtests (which don't use much data to begin with) cap exempt. But that logic is a slippery slope and a cop out."

Hi, we are the GOP.

Do you remember this? We know it was a circus but we also know that's what you like to watch and talk about. You spend countless hours in front of your television sets watching reality shows. Why you just can't get enough. And we're proud to say were a big part of that.

In the 300,000 years since the emergence of modern humans, carbon dioxide levels have never been this high.
