Under The Skin

Here’s a few twilight zone episodes for you, worth watching.

The updated version would include people burning houses down, riots in the streets, murder and assault. All in the span of fifteen minutes.

The human animal is ruthless, self-serving and brutal. The veneer of civility is very thin and easily broken.

America, You Should Be Angry

The billions upon billions of dollars being given to the fat corporate cats at American corporations is bad enough, but these are the failed corporations I’m sharing here:

Wall Street firms have shared profits liberally with employees. The five biggest — Goldman, Morgan Stanley, Merrill, Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. and Bear Stearns — paid their 185,687 employees $66 billion in 2007, as problems with subprime mortgages mounted, including about $39 billion in bonuses. That amounts to average pay of $353,089 per employee, including an average bonus of $211,849. The five firms had combined net income of $93 billion during the five years through 2007.

National Guard Brainwashing

This video should scare the hell out of you. Blatant propaganda, recruiting our kids to become ‘occupiers’, killers, and mindless zombie robots forbidden to think:

Update: I should have also mentioned that this is being shown in theaters around the nation.  I saw it here and VW sent me the link for the YouTube version, he saw it wherever he lives, so it’s probably nationwide now.

Pork Politics Still Doesn’t Triumph The Ongoing Collapse

This is a riot, the ‘bailout bill’ (American Ripoff) was 3 pages long, now it’s already 102 pages long. Looks like pork politics to me (again). The Demonrats are fighting the Republirats, but they’re going to pass the cursed thing.

I’m absolutely certain that this is being seen as a golden parachute opportunity for many failing institutions right now. And who knows what’s in the fine print. I wonder if our lameduck politicians will even read it. Belay that — I don’t wonder at all, I’m just being rhetorical.

Greg Palast: Rove Has Already Fixed the 2008 Election

Truthout has a video of Greg Palast telling us the “fix is in” for the 2008 (s)Election.

Now check this out — Headline news on Drudge is – “Pollster says election could end in landslide“, but it’s not the landside you think:

Despite two books by Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Barack Obama, Americans still don’t know enough about him. And if they don’t think they know him well enough by the time they vote, they’ll go with the “comfortable old shoe,” Republican Sen. John McCain, Zogby said.

The American Dream – Death By Debt and Delusion

Deek has a new video out — The American Dream, Death By Debt And Delusion

As always, accurate, timely and sobering (if you’re paying attention). Deek has done a fine job of exemplifying the American Empire and the destruction of the Earth, enriching the bankers and shysters and would-be leaders that are taking us all to hell.

Shop for your lives and die in debt — pretty much says it all, thanks Deek.

Down She Goes

The going gets worse: China Halts Lending to US Banks

Without Chinese money, what does that make American financial institutions? Broke?

And this: $630 Billion Funding Bill Approved By House

No, not that other financial bailout, this is a different bill, (almost) done in secret, because nobody was paying attention. $488 billion for the Pentagon (with only 2,322 pet projects), and $40 billion for Homeland Security. Supposedly to keep the government running past October 1st.

The Presidential Address

I just listened to the liar in chief, George W. Bush, spew a mouthful of lies to the entire nation in his presidential address.

What unadulterated bullshit.  Nothing he said was accurate.  Telling us that these ‘low priced’ investments will pay us all back — what crap.

Despite my zero faith in Congress, I wish somebody would arrest this mealy mouth scum and drag him off the stage.

A Few Thoughts On the Financial Crisis

You know, the smart thing to do regarding this financial bail-out for the ‘bad’ debt mortgages, is to simply give those homes to the homeowners and wipe out their debts.  This makes a lot more sense then bailing out those corrupt financial institutions, which should be allowed to fail.

By giving the homes to their occupants (paying off their mortgages), this would be a huge financial ‘charge’ to the system, and helping those that actually need the help the most.  And by letting these financial institutions fail, they don’t get rewarded for their stupidity and no golden parachutes.

Death Becomes Her

Jason Miller has a fine rant posted over on CounterCurrents.org, Death Becomes Her

She is so rife with idiocy, devotion to “normalized violence,” and a river of venom that froths and seethes under her guise of “Christian compassion” that it is virtually impossible to pinpoint her most loathsome and dangerous trait. However, her zealous adherence to Western culture’s paradigm of dominionism, meaning dominion over the environment and nonhuman animals, demonstrates and encapsulates most of Sarah Palin’s myriad sociopathic tendencies that readily qualify her to occupy the Oval Office.

UNBELIEVABLE — $2.5 BILLION DOLLAR BONUS FOR FAILED LEHMANS STAFF

Up to 10,000 staff at the New York office of the bankrupt investment bank Lehman Brothers will share a bonus pool set aside for them that is worth $2.5bn (£1.4bn), Barclays Bank, which is buying the business, confirmed last night.

The revelation sparked fury among the workers’ former colleagues, Lehman’s 5,000 staff based in London, who currently have no idea how long they will go on receiving even their basic salaries, let alone any bonus payments. It also prompted a renewed backlash over the compensation culture in global finance, with critics claiming that many bankers receive pay and rewards that bore no relation to the job they had done. Fury at $2.5bn bonus for Lehman’s New York staff
