China wants one world currency?

China wants one world currency?: "Is world government a bad thing? What am I missing here? Yeah, we had a 700 billion dollar bailout, but the week before we spent 600 billion on defense. Why doesn't anybody complain about that? Some people would lose under world government. I just don't feel like those would be our best people. Our best people would gain. We have fifty states. Just think if the 200 countries of the world got along like the fifty states. There would be a lot less killing. What's more important than that?"

Hey, Sarah Palin, there are real American heroes, even here in New York City

Hey, Sarah Palin, there are real American heroes, even here in New York City: ".
This is not just the end of one of the dumbest, meanest Republican campaigns in history. It is also the most divisive. It is no longer liberals vs. conservatives, one ideology against another, one party against the other.
It is Us vs. Them.
If you listen closely to this coded talk about small-town America and small-town values, you wonder how someone like Taylor - if he had been following this campaign instead of fighting for his country - wouldn't have started to get the idea that he was somehow one of Them."

Let Freedom Ring » Blog Archive » Obama-Biden Whine Because Reporter Asked Real Questions

Let Freedom Ring » Blog Archive » Obama-Biden Whine Because Reporter Asked Real Questions: "You want tough questions? Let's ask McCain why his crowd has gone off the deep end. Let's argue about impeachment. Really hasn't the GOP gotten rather rascist? What about his affair? Shouldn't he really have gone to jail for the keating five? How about his wife? His brother? How about the greed he encourages? Are rough questions really what we want? Let's get the National Enquirer front and center. It's called desperation. It's a scorched earth policy. Is this what you want to be remembered for? Will that really help you in the long run? Conservatives have a long row to hoe. Don't do the crime if you can't do the time."

George W. Bush has done us all a favor | Capitol Hill Blue

George W. Bush has done us all a favor | Capitol Hill Blue: "As crazy as it sounds, I believe we now have none other than George W. Bush to thank for most of Mr. Obama's surging popularity.
With eight years of Bush and his neocon Cabal running around the world starting endless 'holy wars' based on non-existent WMDs, Americans have now gotten a good, 'up close and personal' chance to see what a Theocracy looks like.
That is, over the last eight years, the Republican Party has done us all an odd -- if unintentional -- service by showing us in practice exactly what the Founding Fathers feared most and tried to prevent when they created our nation.
What we've been witnessing is nothing less than the Republican Party's complete takeover by the evangelical religious right and their unabashed attempt to turn the United States of America into a Christian Theocracy."

Israel's Not-So-Future Perfect - by Leon Hadar

Israel's Not-So-Future Perfect - by Leon Hadar: "In some respects, Israel's ties with the United States are starting to resemble the relationship between the old political and economic elites and the Jewish community in Europe during the nineteenth century. As Hannah Arendt observed in her classic study of European anti-Semitism, it was the erosion in the power of those elites – and their growing inability to protect the Jews of Europe – that sealed the latter's fate. Then, new and angry social classes and political players turned their frustration against the group they associated with the hated status quo – a group that was also very vulnerable.
Today, a similar scenario could take place on an international scale, when a weaker and less confident United States would be under pressure at home and abroad to reduce its global commitments. This would leave Israel, the weakest link, vulnerable to attacks not only from Arab and Muslim nations, but from other new anti-status quo powers."

YouTube - Bachmann: "Not All Cultures Are Equal": "Can this woman be more insulting? It's her tribe that needs to be diminished and treated as not equal. I feel sorry for her. She has a rough road ahead. The reason she got this way, however, is that she has had it too good for too long. She now thinks she deserves it all because she is just superior to other people. Rots of Ruck"

Vets for Freedom: "I am a disabled vietnam veteran. I mean you no harm. For some reason I am compelled to tell you that it is exactly your philosophy that gets us into these unspeakable horrors. I know you believe in what you're doing. I know there are two sides to everything, and change doesn't come easy. But someday your way of doing things will be extinct, and the world will be a better place for it. I am putting everything I have into reaching that day. I probably won't see it in my life time. That doesn't mean it isn't worth pursuing. Thank you for your time."

YouTube - Why not spread the wealth?

YouTube - Why not spread the wealth?: "I'm from Norway, we have been spreading the wealth around since the sixties, and now we are the richest country on earth. We have free healthcare paid by taxes and as a result the people are happy and we have time and energy to try to spread peace around the world with the nobel price as well as the wealth. Look to Norway, as famously Roosevelt said"

YouTube - Why not spread the wealth?: "Thank you so much for this video. But this is class warfare. Sometimes class warfare is good! The middle class have sided with the rich since the Reagan revolution. Now we need to go the other way without apology. If valueing work over wealth is socialism then socialism is what we need."

YouTube - A REAL HUGO CHAVEZ MOMENT! Jonathan Turley: "conservatives think this is their right. He who cheats the best should be elected.

It really is a criminal mentality"

YouTube - Rep. Michelle Bachmann Is A Crazy Bitch: "We need a reeducation camp. In the Soviet Union they put people in mental wars for their political opinions. People like this make you understand why. I bet she is a fan of the turner diaries. Cynthia McKinny got elected so I guess this worthless individual can to. I do feel sorry for the people that voted for her. Radicalizing the agenda just helps the other side. We'll probably get liberals now saying conservatives are unamerican for supporting this wacko"

YouTube - 100,000 Rally for Obama in the Swing State of Missouri!: "I love how they claim Obama is unamerican because he is socialistic. Who gets to determine what america is? If Obama is socialistic then Reaganism was fascistic because it transfered wealth from the poor to the rich. But that was okay, wasn't it? It was patriotic because it made america stronger. Americans have believed the biggest line of crap for 30 years. Somehow they believed they were being better people. Really they were being chumps"

Europe mocks 'half-baked Alaskan' Palin - CNN.com: "Why should we be like the Europeans? If we like to be ignorant and kill each other for fun then that's our right. America is for americans not europeans. We have our idea of the good life, and they have theirs. Who's to say who's right. Just because we inflict ourselves on other countries doesn't give other countries a right to inflict themselves on us. We are an independent nation. We don't have to get along with anybody. We spend more on defense than the rest of the world combined. Nobody can tell us what to do. If we want to treat our poor like dirt it is our right. We can be as bad as we want to be. The rest of the world can go to hell."

Political Perceptions : Political Wisdom: Should Palin be ‘Pleased’ Over Troopergate?

Political Perceptions : Political Wisdom: Should Palin be ‘Pleased’ Over Troopergate?: "‘The Bush years have all the appearance of a Greek tragedy. Greed, hubris, and short-sighted pursuit of political advantage have been placed in the pressure cooker and the heat turned on high. The result is not that it would boil over but that it would explode. The economic empire is unraveling quietly but at a faster and faster clip. This process will eventually knock out the underpinnings of American military power and bring about a major reduction in overseas entanglements. This is to say that just as the deleveraging in financial assets has turned into an uncontrollable process, so, too, may the unwinding of the US strategic-military networks.’"

YouTube - Americans and reality

YouTube - Americans and reality: "This is such a good video. It is truly rare to see such accuracy. This is exactly why we are in the position we are in. Democracy is a self correcting system. We became politically exhausted with liberalism by the end of the seventies. Thus entered Ronald Reagan and the present period of conservatism"

The Hindu News Update Service

The Hindu News Update Service: "there are certainly clear parallels between the present crisis and events of eight decades ago. In both cases, the economic collapse came after a period of political dominance by the Republican party. The 1920s saw three successive Republican politicians elected to the White House: Warren G Harding, Calvin Coolidge and Herbert Hoover. These administrations shared a fervent commitment to laissez faire capitalism, encouraging growth through tax cuts, low interest rates and minimum business regulation. Coolidge encapsulated Republican faith in the free market economy in the aphoristic observation: 'The business of America is business"

YouTube - Why Doesn't America have Single-Payer Health Insurance?

YouTube - Why Doesn't America have Single-Payer Health Insurance?: "We don't have single payer because we have let america fall into a time warp under 28 years of fascist conservative rule. We've let them talk about balanced budgets yet run up incredible debt. It has been an era of evil lies. America has put its head in the sand every since Ronald RayGun. Impeaching a president over sex? Give me a break! This will be remembered as a bleak period in america's history, but the rich had a ball, and the rednecks had a good time kidding themselves"
