The Republicans' Farcical Candidates: A Club of Liars, Demagogues and
Ignoramuses
-----------------------------------------------------------------

The US Republican race is dominated by ignorance, lies and scandals. The
current crop of candidates have shown such a basic lack of knowledge
that they make George W. Bush look like Einstein. The Grand Old Party is
ruining the entire country's reputation.

Do in Rome what the Romans tell you to


 12/22/2011


Do in Rome what the Romans tell you to

 The discussion on facebook actually started with the story "



http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2011/12/14/french-woman-faces-two-years-in-jail-for-wearing-veil/
you  can read the discussion here on face book first then you will see what am I talking about "http://www.facebook.com/?ref=hp#!/permalink.php?story_fbid=338807816145500&id=704529743&notif_t=share_comment

Andrea, answers are not simple and I know you don't like to be lectured to, to put it simply, the paradigm has shifted, we can no longer go by the assumptions of yesterday, it is the same reason I did not write back to John also. It is hard not to notice how the women's freedom has been stood up on it head. If you notice I was angry about the Egyptian girl posting her naked picture on her blog. I was upset about the protesting girls in Europe exposing themselves in all manner. There are reasons, I have my reasons, if you wish I will post a link to this page on my blog and attempt to let you know about my thinking,

First of all I am sick tired and scared of the zealots of all stripes and colors, not just Muslims in hijab, as you notice on the other page I made a statement against women showing off too much of their cleavage. Just as women in hijab impose on me with their veil, the women showing off their cleavages are asking me to look whether i wish too or not, and whether i look or avert my eyes I am wrong in both  ways.

The practice of hijab among Muslim women is one based on religious doctrine, although the Qur'an does not mandate it. Instead, it comes from the Hadith of Sahih Bukhari. The Hadith, the "tradition of Mohammed," reveals the teachings of the Prophet to believers. Bukhari's version of this text is generally regarded as the standard one, although numerous versions exist. In a very broad sense, the relation the Hadith has to the Qur'an resembles the New Testament's to the Old in Christian scriptures.


My problem is not with hijab, or a woman's freedom to chose what she wears, whether some think it is oppression by men or the culture,  My problem here is with the assumption of so many people that their rights are absolute and must take precedence over the rights, freedoms and the sensibilities of all others.

In a similar thread, where the discussion was about women  wearing clothes that expose more and more of the cleavage,  I was taken to task for suggesting that women are exposing way too much of themselves by the same people  that thought that the hijab was a way for men to oppress women.

It is not a unique idea,  a lot of people think that not only that they know all the answers but also that all their presumptions (assumed to be knowledge) is the only  right way and ALL the other ideas, thought and ideologies are wrong in the absolute.


It is not odd to see that people would argue, I am only asking for modesty and reason, I am not for full body covering Burkhas or Abayas, I only say that not everyone should be showing their breasts in public and I am condemned for it, I am not "old fashioned", but I am only keenly aware that in the last thirty some odd years words such as modesty, chivalry, honesty, fidelity and shame and honor have not only lost  their meanings but have lost their place in the modern lexicon.

I COULD HAVE BEEN WRONG BUT THIS SI STILL NOT KOSHER

12/18/2011


 I COULD HAVE BEEN WRONG BUT THIS SI STILL NOT KOSHER


How America And The Mainstream Media Got Breitbarted On NDAA







An edited video of Carl Levin claiming that Obama wanted the language in the NDAA caused outrage among many Americans, but the full Levin video reveals the opposite.
The YouTube video claimed to be proof that Obama is going to sign a citizen imprisonment law:





However, in the first 30 minutes of the debate Sen. Levin stated that the NDAA provisions do not apply to US citizens:
Hours prior to the YouTube proof video Sen. Levin stated on the Senate floor that the Obama administration requested that the provision be changed so that it does not apply to American citizens, but he explained the provision wasn’t changed because it already didn’t apply to American citizens, “The administration officials reviewed the draft language for this provision the day before our markup and recommended additional changes. We were able to accommodate those recommendations, except for the administration request that the provision apply only to detainees who are captured overseas. There is a good reason for that. But even here, the difference is relatively modest, because the provision already excludes all U.S. citizens. It also excludes all lawful residents of the United States, except to the extent permitted by the Constitution. The only covered persons left are those who are illegally in this country or who arrive as tourists or on some other short-term basis, and that is a small remaining category, but an important one, because it includes the terrorists who clandestinely arrive in the United States with the objective of attacking military or other targets here.”
People need to stop believing everything they read from certain pundits and every claim made in a two minute video.
Yes, NDAA was poorly written originally and even after the changes is a crappy bill; it was written in the Senate Armed Services Committee (McCain/Graham- hello), and as such is a nod to Republican authoritarian stances of the Bush administration. It was co-authored by a Democrat, whom many saw in the above shortened video from C-SPAN claiming the President had asked for “this language”.
Of course, the President did not ask for this language, and this is a matter of record, see the November Senate Armed Services Committee mark up of their original NDAA bill referred to by Levin with objections from Obama:
The new bill would also clarify a number of provisions addressing detainee matters in an effort to address concerns raised by the Administration and others. As requested by the Administration, the new bill would clarify that the section providing detention authority does not expand the existing authority to detain under the Authorization for Use of Military Force Force and make Guantanamo- related restrictions one-year requirements instead of permanent restrictions.
The new bill would also modify a provision requiring military custody of al Qaeda members who attack the United States (subject to a national security waiver) to clarify the President’s authority to decide who makes determinations of coverage, how they are made, and when they are made. As modified, the provision makes it clear that these determinations will not interfere with any ongoing law enforcement operations or interrogations. Under the modified provision, the Executive Branch has the flexibility to keep a covered detainee in civilian custody pursuant to a national security determination, or to transfer a military detainee for trial in the civilian courts. The Administration agreed to have military custody apply to al Qaeda members captured outside the United States (subject to a national security waiver) but disagrees with the committee decision not to preclude the application of the provision inside the United States.
You might be wondering why the video was edited to lead you to believe that he did. That’s a great question.
You might also be asking yourself if the same people who were so willing to believe the author of the bill, Carl Levin, will be as willing to believe Levin’s full statement, in which he clearly says that the President did not want this language.
Had Obama not objected to the language, we would be stuck with the original bill since 83 senators voted yes on the original bill which also passed through the Senate Armed Services Committee unanimously.
People should be asking themselves about the agenda behind not holding the authors of the bill and indeed the Senate accountable for the language in this bill, as it is the same Senate who refused to fund Obama’s executive order to close Gitmo. We note their attempt to run an end-game around Obama’s push for civilian courts and their attempt to slide in permanent changes to restrictions regarding Gitmo. The President objected to those permanent changes.
One would think that anyone who cared about the issue of closing Gitmo would be up in arms at the Senators’ attempt to use a funding bill to get around Obama’s attempts to get around their refusal to fund the closure of Gitmo.
We are in no way defending NDAA. However, the language was changed, and when taken in total (instead of parsed), courtesy of Mother Jones:
It does not, contrary to what many media outlets have reported, authorize the president to indefinitely detain without trial an American citizen suspected of terrorism who is captured in the US. A last minute compromise amendment adopted in the Senate, whose language was retained in the final bill, leaves it up to the courts to decide if the president has that power, should a future president try to exercise it. But if a future president does try to assert the authority to detain an American citizen without charge or trial, it won’t be based on the authority in this bill….
The language in the bill that relates to the detention authority as far as US citizens and permanent residents are concerned is, “Nothing in this section shall be construed to affect existing law or authorities relating to the detention of United States citizens, lawful resident aliens of the United States, or any other persons who are captured or arrested in the United States.”
The bill is still rotten. It takes us in the wrong direction, moving us toward the militarization rather than the civilian courts this President and the majority of the American people desire. The bill represents the Republican approach to national security; one that the American people soundly rejected in 2008. Luckily the President got the language changed, because even if he chose to veto it, it would be for naught, as the Senate had 83 votes for it and it takes only 67 to override a Presidential veto.
In the House the first NDAA vote was 322-96. The final vote was 283-136 with 43 Republicans voting no. If Obama would have vetoed and 35 of those 43 Republicans flipped to yes, the House would have had the votes to override a presidential veto.
The real focus should be on why this bill was written in this way in the first place, when we the people were very clear about wanting civilian trials, and this president has been clear about his desire to close Gitmo.
In the meantime, we urge you to watch the entire C-SPAN video of Levin, lest we all be Breitbarted, because it matters that we are all clear on exactly who is trying to take our country in the wrong direction.

It's the not the public, but the private finance sector, stupid.

12/18/2011


It's the not the public, but the private finance sector, stupid.


The Autumn Statement reveals but one thing: the Chancellor and his advisers are both ill-advised and dangerously ill-prepared for the forthcoming prolonged Depression. (And if you think I exaggerate, let me remind you that 20 years after the Japanese debt bubble burst, Tokyo house prices are still falling, and the stock market is worth 60% less than 20 years ago. And the Japanese economy was in a healthier state then, than the UK is today, thanks to an export surplus.)
Today’s penalising of the innocent – public sector workers, pensioners and those hundreds of thousands of young people entering the labour market  - is a result of a deeply flawed economic analysis by the Chancellor of the causes of the global financial crisis.

No depression will be averted;  no government borrowing will be reduced; no economic recovery can be hoped for, until the cause of the crisis is correctly analysed and then addressed with appropriate policies.
For me an interesting angle on the day was the difference in emphasis between the official Treasury Autumn Statement, and the Chancellor’s speech. The latter was far more ideological of course; but the Treasury Statement does indicate some grasp of the scale of the crisis. The very first paragraph of the full Statement (on page 11) reads:
“The UK economy is recovering from the biggest financial crisis in generations. Prior to the crisis, underlying competitiveness fell and economic growth was driven by unsustainable levels of debt, with the UK seeing the greatest expansion in debt of all the world’s major economies over the last decade. As a result, the UK experienced the deepest recession of any major economy except Japan and the Government inherited a budget deficit forecast to be the largest in the G20.” (My emphasis.)

AND NOW, If you ( everyone) understood that all this money never existed it would be a different story altogether, the problem is that as this money disappears ( whether by paying it down or writing it off the coming years will require the austerity unimaginable proportions . The governments will fail, the governments will fall and the people will starve, as the economies will grind to a halt. It was all predictable, but everyone wanted all the toys, and no one cared. Either way, those who created this imaginary money will have to win to let us live, as I said in 2004, we are being sold in to slavery we just don't know it yet. say this, but I told you so,

Indefinite detention Act voids US Constitution

Indefinite detention Act voids US Constitution

Thank you Mr. President and the congress for passing the NDAA. You should have really sold this to the Americans as a jobs program for the chronically unemployed and barely educated , the kind we have working for the TSA like. Look at how many private sector jobs will be created for contractors of building and running the prisons,  beating up and torturing prisoners,  re education programs, drug testing ( as in using unproved drugs to  mess peoples minds and health with). Most Americans  will soon appreciate your vision and dedication to the American workers and creating so many good paying jobs that you  always talk about.

Once again I told you so, read this below

FALSEHOOD OF OUR REALITIES

12/15/2011

FALSEHOOD OF OUR REALITIES

It is not enough to want to be right, you must know the truth from a falsehood, it is like a faith, (for the religious ones any way) if you believe in a false God, no matter how hard you pray you can not receive salvation. Such is the case in everyday life too, no matter how hard you believe in these, your false assumptions can not make you  right or save your life or fix your reality.

 In America today it is hard to find someone who would really believe that bad as the things are they are about to get worse, I mean there are some but as whole they are still a small minority.

One could despair at the ignorance of the public, but why? Look at those that are running this country, from the executive to the military  our leaders still believe it is the fifties and they can do underhanded stuff all around the world and no one would notice.

Karzai: Leave us out of your Iran mess



When it comes to the fight between the United States and Iran over the downed U.S. drone, keep Afghanistan out of it.
Afghan President Hamid Karzai said Wednesday that his country, which shares a border and, as he put it, "deep cultural, linguistic and religious links" with Iran, does not want to be put in the middle of the dispute.  The unmanned stealth aircraft that crashed in Iran recently flew from a base in Afghanistan. The drone was on a CIA mission when operators lost control of it.
Karzai, speaking along with U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta at a news conference after the two met in Kabul, claimed ignorance about the mission.
"Afghanistan was not aware that the drone had gone or malfunctioned in Iran," Karzai said, responding to a question from a reporter.
He said the Iranians sent a note about the incident to the Afghan Ministry of Foreign Affairs and is following up with the U.S. government. But, Karzai said politely, keep us out of it.

To all the lunatics in charge: keep your heads in the sand


If history has taught us anything, it's that history has taught us nothing. The one trait that unites all politicians is their refusal to learn from their - and other people's - mistakes.
From the Middle East to the US, 2011 will be remembered as the year that this folly came back to haunt them. But you wouldn't guess it by the way they continue about with their business.
Arab dictators have increasingly developed an ostrich-like tendency to ignore what is happening on the streets, to go along with their well-established penchant for cruelty and oppression. read on and then read this

Obama Raises the Military Stakes: Confrontation on the Borders with China and Russia

12/10/2011


Obama Raises the Military Stakes: Confrontation on the Borders with China and Russia

Introduction
After suffering major military and political defeats in bloody ground wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, failing to buttress long-standing clients in Yemen, Egypt and Tunisia and witnessing the disintegration of puppet regimes in Somalia and South Sudan, the Obama regime has learned nothing: Instead he has turned toward greater military confrontation with global powers, namely Russia and China. Obama has adopted a provocative offensive military strategy right on the frontiers of both China and Russia .
After going from defeat to defeat on the periphery of world power and not satisfied with running treasury-busting deficits in pursuit of empire building against economically weak countries, Obama has embraced a policy of encirclement and provocations against China, the world’s second largest economy and the US’s most important creditor, and Russia, the European Union’s principle oil and gas provider and the world’s second most powerful nuclear weapons power.
This paper addresses the Obama regime’s highly irrational and world-threatening escalation of imperial militarism. We examine the global military, economic and domestic political context that gives rise to these policies. We then examine the multiple points of conflict and intervention in which Washington is engaged, from Pakistan , Iran , Libya , Venezuela , Cuba and beyond. We will then analyze the rationale for military escalation against Russia and China as part of a new offensive moving beyond the Arab world ( Syria , Libya ) and in the face of the declining economic position of the EU and the US in the global economy. We will then outline the strategies of a declining empire, nurtured on perpetual wars, facing global economic decline, domestic discredit and a working population reeling from the long-term, large-scale dismantling of its basic social programs. and more, read on

DO NOT BE ALARMED

It is the old political ploy of the governments, talk about war and the enemies while the country is going down the tubes, look at what they have done to this country, we are broke, the bankers are stealing from the treasury in broad day light, while Washington talks about going to war with the only country we depend on for EVERYTHING. to include computer parts for our war machinery. Another war? Really?
