Wierd News

This is “weird” because it directly contradicts the direction the Bush Administration has been headed for the past 8 years (I realize he hasn’t been in office that length of time, but the (s)election was already made and the PNAC had already “decided” on their Pearl Harbor need).

Sent in by Vaughn (his comment below), but I’m going to post the entire article for “posterity” sake (because later on, I guarantee, this will be useful).

The Free Market “Answer” To Climate Change

This find is from Lonewolf, another “dot” warning oft repeated here:

Far from saving us from catastrophe, the market is developing fortresses to shield the haves from the victims of the future.

Bush wants to leave our climate crisis to the ingenuity of the market. Well, the market has spoken: it will not take us off this disastrous course. In fact, the smart money is betting that we will stay on it. Forget the Green Technology – The Hot Money Is In Guns

Enforcing Debts

This is from Vaughn, who found it on Blacklisted News, who found it on Cryptogon, who found it on the Wall Street Journal (whew, did I miss anyone?). It’s also an “I told you so” when I recently shared that the State and the Feds would step in to keep debtors in line:

The Bush administration and major financial institutions are close to agreeing on a plan that would temporarily freeze interest rates on certain troubled subprime home loans, according to people familiar with the negotiations.

Staying In Business

Ok then. A little housecleaning has been necessary around here from time to time. I do it when necessary. Lonewolf had asked me to do it sooner then I did, so I’m sorry about that, probably should have taken his advice.

It’s pointless (and dangerous) to publicly post some commentary. Engaging unknown strangers anywhere, online or offline in risky conversations is simply stupid.

Orchestrated Doom

There has been a lot of food doom in the news, but not all of it noticed and some of it, downright misleading.

ING’s financial analysts predict that agricultural prices will increase further by another 40 per cent by 2020, reflecting a tight supply brought on in part by increased demand for grains, a global water shortage, and changing weather patterns. Grain Prices Could Rise By 40%

Today’s Headlies

[Just a tiny smattering of today’s headlines – Admin].

Here’s an example of one man who fought back:

In 1994, Henderson dispatched his girlfriend to the tax offices to submit an application for a NZ$65,000 (£23,723) rebate. Inappropriate comments were made to the girlfriend, and Henderson felt obliged to defend her honour. Result: a Kafka-esque twist in which the tax office audited his books and issued a claim for NZ$1m (£365,159). A four-year legal battle in the high courts followed, the claim was eventually overturned and Henderson received his original NZ$65,000 refund.

On Propaganda

This is a story from 2004, but worthy of posting here because it reveals (in part) just how highly manipulated our Presidential “race” really is.

The Top 10 Secrets They Don’t Want You To Know About the Debates

In fact, we are not being fairly represented by ANYONE, nor are we even being allowed to engage in an open-discourse on the subjects most important, nor even being allowed to have even a shadow of “fair play” at work here.
