This is a reprint from a reply in Kingbee's article "What REALLY Happened in New Orleans" Link Because I am banished to my own blog for calling stuff like I see it (but that's another story), and therefore unable to reply in that thread, I am forced to respond in my own blog. My response: HOLY FEKKING SHIT!!!! Are you fekking serious?

"Footage from a U.S. government-produced film, which was labeled top secret and kept out of public view for decades, is included in "Original Child Bomb," a documentary that will air on many cable stations Saturday, the 60th anniversary of the day that Hiroshima became the first city to suffer atomic attack." according to Knight Ridder news service and reprinted at Common Dreams Link They also have listed future airings.

................Could Fund Health Care for All

This is an interesting report written by Jobs with Justice in collaboration with others to "send a message to politicians and employers demanding health care reforms that would expand and improve Medicare -type coverage for all rather than undermine or privatize existing programs." As I've written on numerous occassions, I am a socialist/capitalist at heart. I believe in free market economy where appropriate, but without corporate abuse of work...

Jobs with Justice held a poll to vote for the Grinch of the Year, which I guess they do every year. This year's hands down winner is none other than Wal-mart. Runners up include Comcast and Cintas.

Link Grinch finalists

It's sad that some mega corporations with CEO's earning millions find the need to make more and more money off the backs of their employees, the very individuals reponsible for their wealth.

I haven't shopped at Wal-mart for years, mostly because it's not conveniently...

I received this in my email this morning, and I hope that you take the time to read this rather long article. It is important., and I'd love to get back some comments.

I'm not sure why the second half of my article didn't post, but this is essentially where I left off in the first segment......

Back to the issue of global warming....... A really good place to start reading about this subject is on the Union of Concerned Scientists website Link
November 20, 2004 by dabe
Rather than get your skewed information about global warming from political websites, particularly conservative think tank sites, I invite you to learn about global warming from the scientific experts. They do not have political axes to grind when they discuss global warming and sea level rise, except as it relates to the Bush White Wash, I mean House attempts to skew and supress scientific reports.

As an environmental professional working predominantly in the field of coastal zone managemen...

I'm reprinting this article here because I just know in my heart how utterly wrong and futile the war in Iraq is, how much of a disaster it was from the beginning, what a travesty and shameful chain of events that we, the United States of America, has perpetrated upon the Iraqi people. Bob Herbert described it so eloquently.

after reading this short and concise history of an American Company, you HAVE to start wondering about our commander in chief.

This is an amazing article.:

Even if you don't like the man, John F. Kerry, you have to acknowledge that most of what makes a successful administration is the kind of people a president surrounds himself with, who his advisors and his cabinet will be made of.. One would question that Bush may not have known about what Cheney, Rice, Powell, etc. were drumming up. But, come on. He selected them, particularly Cheney...
