    America – when someone says they ‘hear voices’ you nod & excuse yourself. Do the same when Cain, Bachmann, Perry, etc say they hear ‘God’

    America – @MarkHalperin gives As and Bs to those advocating war with Iran, waterboarding & Ryan’s ‘let grandma die’ Medicare plan. Got it.

        Thank you Chipsticks.

        And, thank you for your utterly amazing contributions, every day, to preserving the dream of America in the face of unrelenting efforts to destroy it – the most insidious and pervasive being those calling themselves Americans but serving only their fanatical greed.

        It has always been that because of individuals like you and the communities you create that humanity progresses & I have no doubt that President and First Lady Obama are aware of your commitment and creativity.

    SNL’s Perry at debate: “I can’t say stuff good. The words don’t talk right.”

    The disconnect between the corrupt congress critters and their citizems

    Silvio Berlusconi’s scandal-ridden premiership ended in ignominy as he was forced to hide from a jeering crowd in Rome after handing in his resignation at a late-night meeting with President Giorgio Napolitano. His departure followed a historic vote in parliament that paved the way for a new government tasked with shoring up the ailing economy.

    Berlusconi was forced to leave the presidential residence through a side entrance, to chants of “buffoon, buffoon” from thousands of demonstrators outside. The news agency Ansa reported that he told aides: “This is something that deeply saddens me.” The protesters, including a choir singing the Hallelujah chorus from Handel’s Messiah, rejoiced at his departure.

    Despite support eroding within his own ranks, Berlusconi was greeted by cheers of “Silvio, Silvio”, and given a standing ovation by his party as he took his seat in the chamber. Fabrizio Cicchitto, a member of his Freedom People party, told MPs: “We express all our solidarity to him for the attacks he has suffered.” Berlusconi stood to give a slight bow to the chamber.

    Guardian’s liveblog (ok now deadblog) of today’s mindless madness is damned funny.


    Actually, the deadblog version is even funnier. 🙂

        An email from a reader:

        The “reporting” on your blog about the Republican debate is just pure hatred. You “enlightened, intelligent, tolerant” liberals are too ignorant to even see your ridiculous hypocrisy. Mind your own fucking business, by the way, you loser Brits.

        See, this is what happens when you say nice things about Bachmann and Santorum. Serves me right.

    Bank of America is at it again! This time it’s attempting to “nickel and dime” the unemployed…


    Bank of America recently aborted plans to charge ordinary banking customers $5 a month to use their debit cards in the face of national outrage. But the bank has quietly continued to mine another source of fees: jobless people who depend upon the bank’s prepaid debit cards to tap their benefits. Bank of America and other financial firms — including U.S. Bank, Wells Fargo and JP Morgan Chase — have secured contracts to provide access to public benefits in 41 states. These contracts typically allow banks to collect unlimited fees from merchants and consumers.

    In short, the same banks whose speculation delivered a financial crisis that has destroyed millions of jobs have figured out how to turn widespread unemployment into a profit center: The larger the number of people who are out of work and dependent upon the state for sustenance, the greater the potential gains through administering their benefits.

    The Arab League Saturday suspended Syria until President Bashar al-Assad implements an Arab deal to end violence against protesters, and called for sanctions and transition talks with the opposition. Syrian envoy Yussef Ahmad denounced the move as illegal, saying Damascus had already implemented the deal and accusing the United States of ordering the suspension.

    He also charged that the League was trying to “provoke foreign intervention in Syria, as was the case in Libya.”

    US President Barack Obama praised the move, and EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton expressed her full support. The opposition Syrian National Council said it was a “step in the right direction.”

    Military action against Iran could have “unintended consequences” in the region, U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said on Thursday, hours after Tehran warned that an attack against its nuclear sites would be met by “iron fists.” Panetta, who took over the Pentagon’s top job in July, said he agreed with an assessment of his predecessor, Robert Gates, that a strike on Iran would only delay its nuclear program, which the West believes is aimed at making an atomic bomb.

    Gates also warned it could unite the country and deepen its resolve toward pursuing nuclear weapons. Iran says its nuclear program is peaceful and that it is enriching uranium to power reactors for electricity generation.

    “You’ve got to be careful of unintended consequences here,” Panetta told reporters at the Pentagon, when asked about his concerns about a military strike. He acknowledged military action might fail to deter Iran “from what they want to do.” “But more importantly, it could have a serious impact in the region, and it could have a serious impact on U.S. forces in the region,” he said. “And I think all of those things, you know, need to be carefully considered.”

      An ‘unintended consequence’ could well be a radiation catastrophe over Central and South Asia and beyond that would make Chernobyl & Fukushima trivial, very long term, health risks to every person and species on the planet. That is why even Israeli military and intelligence officials with more than a clue are leaking their deep concerns about Bibi’s craziness.

    I love this quote from the President at the APEC leaders’ dinner:


    At dinner, Obama told the APEC leaders and representatives that he “could not imagine a more fitting place than my home state of Hawaii.”

    “Here we are literally in the center of the Pacific,” Obama said. “Here we’re reminded of the progress that’s possible when people of different background and beliefs come together. This is the most diverse state in our nation, home to so many races and immigrants and Americans who trace their roots back to many of your countries. Hawaii’s not perfect but I think Hawaii comes about as close as you’ll come to a true melting pot of cultures. Here we’re a single `ohana,’ one family.

    “We remember that beneath the surface, behind all the different languages and some very long names, we all share the same hopes, the same struggles and the same aspirations,” he said. “And we’ve learned that we’re more likely to realize our aspirations when we pursue them together. That’s the spirit of Hawaii. It’s what made me who I am. It’s what shapes my interactions with all of you. And it’s the spirit that I hope guides us in our work this weekend.”

    Obama then proposed a toast “with the words of a traditional Hawaiian proverb.”

    He said the toast in Hawaiian, “A’ohe hana nui ke alu ‘ia,” and then translated.

    “That means `no task is too big when done together by all.’ Cheers. Salud.”

    Supreme Court justices appear poised to thrust themselves and the Obama administration’s signature health care law smack into the middle of the 2012 election.

    As early as Monday, following a closed-door session last week, the justices will reveal whether they will consider one or more challenges to the law. If they do, as every court watcher expects, the program that opponents call “Obamacare” will dominate both the legal and political docket throughout the election year.

    “This decision could come right in the middle of everything,” said Dennis Goldford, a professor of politics and international relations at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa.


    This is a double edged sword.
