Dick Cheney's Been Preparing for An Economic Collapse

"Wouldn’t you like to know where Dick Cheney puts his money? Then you’d know whether his “deficits don’t matter” claim is just baloney or not. Well, as it turns out, Kiplinger Magazine ran an article based on Cheney’s financial disclosure statement and, sure enough, found out that the VP is lying to the American people."

NYC Cops Beating Up Protesters in Front of U.N Headquarters

Video footage of New York cops clubbing and arresting peaceful Tibetan protesters who were merely walking down the street has gone relatively ignored beyond Youtube. While stories emerge out of China every day of police beating and killing Tibetan protestors in the streets, the same sort of behavior by cops in America tells its own story.

Clinton Says Sleep Deprivation Caused Her Bosnia Lie

Hillary Clinton today banked on the fact that she believes we voters are all complete idiots and gave an interview today with a Pennsylvania newspaper with this gem: "On saying last week that she landed under sniper fire during a trip to Bosnia in 1996, when she was first lady: 'I was sleep-deprived, and I misspoke". WTF?

Hillary or Nobody?

"Some top Democrats are increasingly worried that the Clintons’ divide-and-conquer strategy is nihilistic: Hillary or no democrat. (Or, as one Democrat described it to ABC’s Jake Tapper: Hillary is going for “the Tonya Harding option” — if she can’t get the gold, kneecap her rival.)"

Change is real

Reading this older article on WIRED, it again illustrates why Barack Obama is our man.

Change Congress

Aftr reading an article about this on BoingBoing and then WIRED on Larry Lessigs WIkipedia approach to changing congress, and the smart idea of using this big series of tubes your on now to actually ferment a change, I thought I would track as best as possible to follow, read, and participate in the Change Congress project, and hopefully report its uses and goings ons of the site.
One of the things that intrigued is finally a good wording on a problem that seemed to have so many angles and nothing to pin down, but as as Lessig said:
"The problem we face is ... the problem of crony capitalism using money to capture government," he said on Monday during the launch of his project in Washington, DC. "The challenge is whether in fact we can change this. The political experts tell you that it can't be done, that process always win over substance."

The premise is this: Members of Congress Have four things they must PLEDGE by: (1) a promise not to accept PAC or lobbyist contributions, (2) a commitment to abolish "earmarks" permanently, (3) a commitment to support public financing of public elections, and (4) a commitment to compel transparency in the functioning of Congress. Once a candidate or Member selects the planks he or she supports, the site will give the candidate code to embed that pledge on the campaign website.

SO maybe this can be a popularity totem pole for them to clamor for and hopefully clean DC up in the same faction but first lets see who pledges, no?
More to come

Back to it 3.2008

Back in action:
Did I miss anything? Oh wait:

But then out of the blue, like a shot that true:

Here I come to save the day!
I don;t know, I know Obamas right, but do people? The Media Machine if out there fucking shit up so bad, I wonder.

I am glad I had this as a tool, to convince my mother, brother and family to stay with Obama. Long time Republicans voting along with the rest of Cubans here in Miami, they never really saw too many side to the election and with the media pouring into this ridiculousness of this situation it gave me great pride that Mr. Obama came out and with a calm cool manner, to paraphrase Jon Stewart, speak to America like we were adults.
and with this video I help ebb some of the first struck anger, and justifiable outrage over Reverend Wright words, but I must tell you that it's not done:
The Spanish media, at least in Miami, if only seeing this one sided, and if the Obama campaign wants to make stride address them as the same as you addressed everyone in some way, We really need to. It's startling how little Latinos know about Mr. Obama, and how scary it is to see how this has been used in a very controlled and contrived Latin media market to make him look bad. I can hope you all do what you can to bring this message more so that we can understand as well as my family did of what happened.

The $2-3 Trillion Nightmare; A Cheney-Bush production

The Cheney-Bush "administration" has concealed the horrendous costs of the war ($2-3 Trillion or more). It has bypassed the normal budgetary process, financing the war almost entirely through “emergency” appropriations that get far less scrutiny. Bush lied to us about the reasons to go to war, and was a coward for evading service in Vietnam.
