John Cusack's New Movie - War, Inc. - Trailer

Answer to a question on the Bill Maher show

CUSACK: Well, but I think they’re getting more and more information about it. And I think, you know, some of these truths are so horrible that you don’t really want to think about that. I mean, I don’t…but I mean, it’s just…I mean, the gig’s up. I mean, if guys who are statesmen on CNN and are also sitting on the boards and are, you know, shareholders in some of the most profitable defense contractors in the world and they publicly make the case to go to war, and then they go to war, right? And they create a new market with their war, they bar their competitors from the aftermath; then they come back and speak evangelically about free markets that aren’t even free, when it’s a vast protectionist racket. These aren’t particularly subtle facts, their stop…stock prices jump 145%, their companies are awarded $2.3billion dollar contracts. I mean, after a while, you have to just expose and shame and indict and hopefully, convict the participants in this illegal, immoral ideology. So yeah, are Americans complacent? But I’m not…I’m not ready to give up or cede the Constitution of the United States to this bunch of hoodlums.

Massive ice shelf on verge of breakup

(CNN) -- Some 220 square miles (570 square kilometers) of ice has collapsed in Antarctica and an ice shelf about the size of Connecticut is "hanging by a thread," the British Antarctic Survey has said, blaming global warming.We are in for a lot more events like this," said professor Ted Scambos, a glaciologist at the National Snow and Ice Data Center at the University of Colorado at Boulder.Scambos alerted the British Antarctic Survey after he noticed part of the Wilkins ice shelf disintegrating on February 28, when he was looking at NASA satellite images.

Late February marks the end of summer at the South Pole and is the time when such events are most likely, he said."The amazing thing was, we saw it within hours of it beginning, in between the morning and the afternoon pictures of that day," Scambos said of the large chunk that broke away on February 28.The Wilkins ice shelf lost about 6 percent of its surface a decade ago, the British Antarctic Survey said in a statement on its Web site

Another 220 square miles -- including the chunk that Scambos spotted -- had splintered from the ice shelf as of March 8, the group said.As of mid-March, only a narrow strip of shelf ice was protecting several thousand kilometers of potential further break-up," the group said.

It put the size of the threatened shelf at about 5,571 square miles, comparable to the state of Connecticut, or about half the area of Scotland. Once Scambos called the British Antarctic Survey, the group sent an aircraft on a reconnaissance mission to examine the extent of the breakout. "We flew along the main crack and observed the sheer scale of movement from the breakage," said Jim Eliott, according to the group's Web site. Big hefty chunks of ice, the size of small houses, look as though they've been thrown around like rubble -- it's like an explosion," he said.

Bush's War

Tonight on PBS, part two of the Frontline special “Bush’s War” will air. Part one — which covered the period from 9/11 to March 2003 — aired last night was absolutely remarkable in it’s grasp of the entire picture of how and why we are in Iraq. Check your local listings or watch the entire program online here. Also be sure to check out all the supplemental material that wasn’t included in the broadcast version.


The wolf sheep love to love. America is a cult society.

Clueless is the only word that fits the majority of the population.

BLIND FAITH - in religion and politics, it's all the same to most people. The president is like god. A Caesar for the masses.

Brainwashed from childhood by TV and a corrupt education system they give over free will, they can't think for themselves. They need to be spoon fed their opinions.

5th Anniversary of Iraq War Decision: Who Will Get Us Out?

from TalkLeft
by By Jeralyn

On this 5th anniversary of the vote to authorize an invasion of Iraq, who is the candidate most likely to get us out? As the Clinton campaign suggests in this video, Barack Obama has been anything but clear and consistent.

I'd put it another way. Obama, even today, wants to focus on who did what five years ago. That is so not the issue and so last year. Voters want to know who has the best plan for an exit and who is best going to be able to execute that plan.
Here's Hillary's plan. Here are 34 Admirals and Generals explaining why Hillary is better equipped to be commander in chief and why her plan to exit Iraq is both the best and most achievable:

Think Fast from Think Progress

from Think Progress

At the outset of the Iraq war, the Bush administration predicted that it would cost $50 billion to $60 billion to oust Saddam Hussein, restore order and install a new government.” Now, five years later, the Pentagon says the cost of the war is “roughly $600 billion and counting” while economist Joseph Stiglitz “pegs the long-term cost at more than $4 trillion,” which he calls an “excessively conservative” estimate.

Marking the fifth anniversary of the Iraq war, President Bush will deliver a speech today at the Pentagon defending his decision to wage war. According to excerpts, Bush will say the war’s “high cost in lives and treasure” has been “necessary” and that the war’s successes are “undeniable.”

71 percent: Americans who think “U.S. spending in Iraq is a reason for the nation’s poor economy.” According to the new CNN poll, just 36 percent of the American public believes the “situation in Iraq was worth going to war over — down from 68 percent in March 2003, when the war began.”

32 percent: The number of Americans who approve of President Bush, down from 34 last month. The new Reuters/Zogby poll also finds that only 19 percent believes the country is headed in the right direction.

Former Secretary of State Lawrence Eagleburger, a surrogate for John McCain, told an audience that the religious right is “a serious problem.” “On the Christian hard right, I live in Charlottesville now and I can’t tell you I’m surrounded by it,” Eagleburger said. “I must tell you we fought it there, fought hard against it. There’s no question that in the Republican Party it is a serious problem.” Read the rest of this entry »

Bruce Springsteen: THIS LAND IS YOUR LAND

I like to tell the story about Bruce when he came to Pittsburgh back when our steel mills were closing. Seems that a few weeks before he came here olde president Ray Gun was asked by the press what kind of music he liked. Ray Gun mentioned he liked Bruce but couldn't think of one song, so he told them he'd get back to them . A few days later olde Ronnie said he liked Born in the USA not realizing it was a protest song. So Bruce comes to the Civic Arena and makes his first political statement ever; "Here is a song I bet old Ray Gun never heard and I'd like to dedicate it to Local 1397" and then played The River. Before Bruce left town he gave the locals food bank a check for 50g and when he came back and played the stadium he gave us another 50g and 50g to the Rainbow Kitchen. Those were trying times for a lot of unemployed folks. Thanks again Bruce.

If she won't be a slave, we say that she don't love us
If she's real, we say she's trying to be a man
While putting her down, we pretend that she's above us

Welcome to the Crash of 08

Wall Street heads to work uneasy over Bear Stearns fire sale
Traders waiting for more Fed moves
Monday, March 17, 2008

NEW YORK - Wall Street begins the new week trying to come to terms with just how bad the fallout from the credit crisis is -- so bad that an investment bank worth $20 billion weeks ago has been bought for just $236 million.

The news late yesterday that JPMorgan Chase & Co. will buy Bear Stearns for a sum that's considered paltry by Wall Street standards is likely to leave investors shaken. What might give stocks some support is the Federal Reserve's latest steps to inject cash into the banking system -- steps aimed at lifting the economy but also to restore some confidence to investors. But how much that will help stocks, and for how long, is a big question on the Street.

Wall Street faces a paradox as trading opens this morning -- the more investors find out about the problems caused by billions of dollars in failed mortgages and investments, the more unknowns seem to crop up. And the near-collapse of Bear Stearns after it invested heavily in risky mortgage-backed securities, while it ends uncertainty about one company, still raises concerns about how badly wounded other financial institutions might be.

Some answers will come this week, when quarterly earnings reports are due from Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc., Goldman Sachs Group Inc., and Morgan Stanley. Bear Stearns was scheduled to report its results today; it wasn't clear if it would go ahead with that plan.

Meanwhile, the Fed has been using the various tools at its disposal -- even creating some that investors have never seen before -- to try to mend the ailing financial markets.

Yesterday, the central bank cut its discount rate, the interest it charges financial institutions, to 3.25 percent from 3.50 percent, effective immediately, and created another lending facility for big investment banks to secure short-term loans.

The steps are "designed to bolster market liquidity and promote orderly market functioning," the Fed said in a statement. "Liquid well-functioning markets are essential for the promotion of economic growth."

And last week, the Fed said it would pump up to $200 billion into the system by taking mortgage-backed securities as collateral.

The Fed is expected to take another step this week to help the economy tomorrow when it holds a regularly scheduled meeting on interest rates. The Fed is going to have to make a big rate move and a powerful statement to reassure the markets, and most analysts expect at least a half-point reduction in the key fed funds rate, which now stands at 3 percent. Some believe the Fed will slash rates by a full point.

The question is whether the Fed, which has had mixed success in lessening the impact of the credit crisis and calming the markets, can restore confidence to Wall Street. While investors have felt relief that the Fed is willing to act aggressively, they are more anxious than they've been in years; many didn't believe the credit crisis that began last year due to spiking mortgage defaults would reach this magnitude. The positive effect of past Fed moves have quickly evaporated.

Investors are also worried as they see increasing signs of a possible recession in the United States -- companies are cutting jobs and the housing market shows few, if any, signs of coming out of its slump.

"We're sort of in uncharted waters here," said Brandon Thomas, chief investment officer for Portfolio Management Consultants, the investment arm of Envestnet. "Usually the market does a really good job discounting things that are unknown. Now it seems like the unknown is too unknown -- they don't know how to discount it."

Last week was a fitful one for Wall Street. After soaring early in the week on news that the Fed was taking new steps to try to end the near paralysis in the credit markets, stocks pulled back Friday on news that Bear Stearns had to be bailed out. The major indexes finished the week little changed. The Dow rose 0.48 percent, the Standard & Poor's 500 index slipped 0.40 percent, and the Nasdaq composite index ended flat.

This week's economic data is expected to show more weakness in the economy but some easing in inflation pressures.

Economists surveyed by Thomson Financial/IFR anticipate the Commerce Department tomorrow to report declines in February housing starts and building permits; the Labor Department tomorrow to report a modest increase in February producer prices; and the Philadelphia Fed on Thursday to report another contraction in the region's business activity.

Meanwhile, credit card processor Visa Inc. is expected to launch what it anticipates to be the largest initial public offering in U.S. history.

Obama Pitches Independents and Repubs to Register as Dems in PA

Remember Dems for a Day? Here's the new ad that went up on Barack Obama's website yesterday, telling voters if they are Indpendents or Republicans they must register as Dems by March 24.

Salon has more on the Obama's very orchestrated and intentional campaign to have Republicans and Indpendents register as Dems so he can be our party's nominee.

According to the L.A. Times, the Obama campaign is seeking to register an additional 100,000 voters as Democrats in the next two weeks. Currently, there are 3.89 million registered Democratic voters in the state.

....But both the Politico and the Los Angeles Times have published stories recently about the Obama campaign's efforts to register thousands of independent and Republican voters as Democrats before the March 24 voter registration deadline. The vote itself will be held on April 22; as it's what's called a "closed" primary, only registered Democrats will be allowed to participate in the Democratic half of the primary.

If the Obama campaign is to pull off an upset, the new registrants will be vitally important. As the Politico's Carrie Budoff Brown observes, "The final tabulations [of the voter rolls] from the Department of State could offer the first tangible indications of whether Obama can catch Clinton in a state where she holds the advantage."

More at Politico, the Philadelphia Enquirer and the LA Times.

Independents and Republicans can easily switch back for November. At least if real Dems, not Dems for a Day, were picking the nominee, we'd know we'd have their vote for the general election. And real dems prefer Hillary. She's got more of their votes than Obama, I posted the numbers in this post a few days ago, as calculated by a TalkLeft reader. No one disputed them.

Profit from Pain

I decided to re-post this poem I wrote about violence against women after a long phone call with my Best Friend. I wrote this for a good friend while she was in a safe house after being severely beaten by her boy friend. Lets Stop the Violence!

do not let him
profit from your pain
he was the one
who hurt you
he was the one
who tore you down
he was the one
who abused you
do not let him
profit from your pain

I can see the tears you hide
as well as the hurt in your eyes
I feel your pain
it makes me hurt inside
I can see your abuse
it shows and
it's not pretty
do not let him
profit from your pain

he was the one
who stole your heart
and broke it
in the end
he was the one
who destroyed
your self-esteem
who threw away
your dreams
do not let him
profit from your pain

take some time
and recover
know you are loved
by all that you have helped
take some time for yourself
take some time to heal
Let him go
and know now
He shall never
Profit from your pain

Yes, Virginia, There are Hillary Bloggers

From TalkLeft
By Jeralyn

With most of the progressive blogosphere seemingly behind Barack Obama, Tom Watson lines up the list of those favoring Hillary.

To be a Clinton blogger in the progressive blogosphere is to be hated, shunned, passed without notice in the street. .... We're not welcome at all the best dKos parties - if we show up, we're cursed with the universal epithet of those who challenge the Obama hegemony: "troll," they call us. ... Oh, the pain. The pure pain.

Give the gift of traffic. Here's Tom's list of bloggers writing favorably about Hillary:

There's Taylor Marsh, of course - unapologetic, in your face, deeply annoying to those who decry "the Clintons." Why, her very name launches vast armadas of angry commenters, her very name has become almost synonymous with hard-fisted Clinton blogging. We like her out front, in other words.

And look, we've got James Wolcott - the intellectual equivalent, according to some recent Pew research, of a combined 14,392 DailyKos Obama diarists. (I must note: he'd probably disapprove of the label "Clinton blogger" but we have to stretch things on our roster at times and he did coin the memorable phrase: "so shun me, I voted for Hillary," which has pretty much become our rallying cry - the T-shirts are on order). Then there's Big Tent Democrat and Jeralyn Merritt at TalkLeft - absolutely fabulous analysts and media critics. We'll include Lance Mannion, who has never named his choice but makes the always curious decision to actually defend Hillary Clinton in multiple posts - yes, he's one of us. Blue Girl, of course, and in Ohio too - so very crucial.

Let's not forget the prolific Riverdaughter, a feminist of wide-ranging abilities who always seems to nail what's so important about the typical Clinton voter (hint: they work, and they work at hard jobs). Our circle is made richer by the addition of the indomitable Shakespeare's Sister, a former Edwards blogger and all-around blog-whoring (her term, don't shoot me!) maestro.

Who else? John Amato at Crooks and Liars - playing it fair these days makes you a Clinton blogger. Fred Wilson and Jeff Jarvis? Well, they voted for her and actually admitted it in public. Joe Gandelman? An always moderate voice who seems to lean her way (I could be wrong). Jon Swift? The rare righty who doesn't hate Hillary. And I'm thinking Jane Hamsher leans our way. And Jessica Valenti. Digby too. And hey, maybe Tina Brown?

I'll add:

And some of the diarists at MyDD. If you know of others, leave them in the comments.

And I'll add Pittsburgh's own 2 Political Junkies which is split 1/2 and 1/2

Obama Advisor Calls Hillary a Monster

By Jeralyn,

In the latest edition of Surrogates Gone Wild: Obama's key foreign policy aide Samantha Power has called Hillary Clinton "a monster."

We f***** up in Ohio," she admitted. "In Ohio, they are obsessed and Hillary is going to town on it, because she knows Ohio's the only place they can win.

"She is a monster, too – that is off the record – she is stooping to anything," Ms Power said, hastily trying to withdraw her remark.

Power is a Harvard Law grad.

Ms Power was head-hunted by Barack Obama to become his foreign-policy adviser in 2005 and combines this role with her job as a Time magazine columnist and professor of practice of global leadership and public policy at Harvard.

Dixie Chicks - Travelin' Soldier

I watched Shut up and Sing again last night
These lyrics won't leave my head

Travelin' Soldier

Two days past eighteen
He was waiting for the bus in his army green
Sat down in a booth in a cafe there
Gave his order to a girl with a bow in her hair
He's a little shy so she gives him a smile
And he said would you mind sittin' down for a while
And talking to me,
I'm feeling a little low
She said I'm off in an hour and I know where we can go

So they went down and they sat on the pier
He said I bet you got a boyfriend but I don't care
I got no one to send a letter to
Would you mind if I sent one back here to you

Chorus: I cried
Never gonna hold the hand of another guy
Too young for him they told her
Waitin' for the love of a travelin' soldier
Our love will never end
Waitin' for the soldier to come back again
Never more to be alone when the letter said
A soldier's coming home

So the letters came from an army camp
In California then Vietnam
And he told her of his heart
It might be love and all of the things he was so scared of
He said when it's getting kinda rough over here
I think of that day sittin' down at the pier
And I close my eyes and see your pretty smile
Don't worry but I won't be able to write for awhile


One Friday night at a football game
The Lord's Prayer said and the Anthem sang
A man said folks would you bow your heads
For a list of local Vietnam dead
Crying all alone under the stands
Was a piccolo player in the marching band
And one name read and nobody really cared
But a pretty little girl with a bow in her hair

[Chorus x2]
