Case in point Yitzhak Rabin a member of Israels Labor Party , the 5th and 10th Prime Minister of Israel won the cherished Nobel Peace Prize in 1994 for making Peace with the Arabs, Rabin was awarded the peace prize along with Shimon Peres and Yassar Arafat. Part of the Peace Treaty involved Israel withdrawing from captured Arab lands, which Netanyahu's right wing Likud Party was violently opposed too.
Amazing how some videos speed across the country at warp speed.
A few thoughts on the in school officer, Deputy Ben Fields, and his actions in the classroom. Let it be typed up front that some sources claim she was punching the officer. I saw none of that.
RICO: Since 1977 Exxon knew they were collapsing our atmosphere’s ability to support life but they lied$$$ about it.

This from the Natural Resources Defense Council :
Dear Sane American Citizen,
It sounds like a headline from The Onion: U.S. Exporting Its Forests to Keep the Lights on in Europe.
But it's worse than a bad joke, because it's true: Millions of acres of biologically critical forests in the Southern U.S. are at risk of being razed to fuel European power plants.
The coronation is in full swing.
“If you take out Saddam, Saddam’s regime, I guarantee you that it will have enormous positive reverberations on the region.” ~ Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu urging the US to invade Iraq in 2002.
Netanyahu’s speech to Congress was brilliantly deceitful because it played to the fantasies that Israeli propaganda and right wing militarists in the US have been popularizing for the past thirty years.
Testing the Power of the Internet
I remember 2008 well. That was the year that I first began blogging. It was also the year that Barack Obama was first elected as President of the United States. In the beginning, my only social networking was on the Thom Hartmann Community. Then, I joined MySpace, but found it full of airheads, cybervixen spammers and vulgarity, so I quit it the following year and joined Facebook. I began The Thom Hartmann Bloggers Group on Facbook, Ocbober 20, 2009 (I just checked), just over 6 years ago and have been with it ever since.
“A very big mistake”: Nobel Prize-winning Economist Joseph Stiglitz thinks TPP is a truly horrifying and stupid thing.
Under the TPP proposed by Barac O’Bama Phillip Morris (aka Altria) could sue Uruguay for lost profit because Uruguay’s law of putting cancer warnings on cigarette packs would cost them sales.
Worse still private arbitration is so wildly expensive (who is bigger “economy” Uruguay or Phillip Morris?) and rife with conflict of interest that Uruguay would have to pay up.
with wall street backed companies buying up rentals, evicting people and raising rents sky high are we looking at the next mortgage/dervative/real estate bubble that might burst and bring down the economy as well as making lots of people homeless?
