DHS funding

We Americans are quick to forget almost everything. With all this discussion in congress about DHS funding why is it that no-one is bringing up the fact that part of the DHS funding is to work with our state and local police departments.

Idaho Christian State Proposal Shelved

apparently, the idea of declaring Idaho a christian taliban state was the idea of a couple wacko right wingers in the Kootenai County Republican Central Committee...who introduced the resolution. But a 2/3rd majority of the committee shelved the idea

proving there are some sane Republicans.

Funding the Manhattan Project

In 1904 both Bank of America and Aetna were "founded."

Assorted Notes due bankers from 1924, maturing in 1944, overlapped underwriting for the Manhattan Project.

In 1944:

Alleghany Corp. (holding company of the New York Central RR aka American Express)funded debt reached maturity;

Private lender groups applied pressure on the Home Owners Loan Corporation to pre-maturely sell its mortgages;

N.Y., Chicago & St. Louis Ry bonded debt of August 1, 1929 was due

WI would have been better off had its billionaire taken her jobs and left the State.

Call it an example of billionaire’s behaving badly or whatever you want, but without a doubt – and in EVERY respect – Wisconsin, its Economy, and society, would have been better off if Hendricks would have taken her jobs, her billions and her dance pole and gotten the fuck out of Wisconsin. With the money and economy the State and its Taxpayers would have had had she just left, a state-of-the-art, mega-employing factory (with gold plated toilet fixtures!!) could have been built in Beloit (right next to the new one that got built in Janesville!)

Al Shabaab = Evil Genius

Is Al Shabaab the new "Osama bin Laden" threat against one of our core freedoms, with their recent video calling for TERRORIST ATTACKS on SHOPPING MALLS in the U.S.?

To set an example

Some troll-points aren't worth refuting in detail. In general, it's easier to generate lies and propaganda and nonsense than to attack it, and we want the liars and propagandists to do the hard work.

There's not much left of global warming science that's even ambiguous, nor has there been since the late 1980s. The Marquis de Sade is not a hero of the left, because there's no evidence that he is :) That "there's no evidence that X, therefore, not X" is quite handy. If a troll can assert X with no evidence you can use that.

2015 Pipeline Mortgage Capital Needed to Cover 1940 Railway Bonds

As this is the way transportation and industrial finance has always worked since the first American Canal Projects, the push for a 2015 Keystone Pipeline is more about bonded worthless debt between bankers than it is about necessity for a pipeline. There is more at stake than climate change to blind us and divert attention from historical financial facts.

Who Will Stop World War III?

Thom plus logo Back in 2001, after 9/11, Congress gave the president the authority to basically wage war anywhere in the world where there were governments affiliated with Al Qaeda, the radical Sunni Muslim group that came out of the Saudi Wahhabist movement. Iran is Shia Muslim, essentially the sworn enemies of the Sunnis.
