RE WikiLeaks - We can't let them have it both ways

They can't say, no news here, move along, move along, and simultaneously: they're going to bring the whole wrath of the security state down on that brave soldier who dared to do his duty and show the video of the Emperor, the Mass Murderer, the Hegemonic Schemer, the Wall State Enabler, bloody new clothes.

We should not obey illegal orders, at the Nuremberg trials "WE" said, obeying orders is not a defense.

Murdering civilians, is not war, shooting up children, is not war. Torture, electrodes, hanging people by their thumbs and elbows, water boarding this is not war. This is the stuff of war crimes. This is what the bad guys do, this is not what the leaders of the FREE WORLD the DEFENDERS of the FUTURE do!

War by propaganda, purchasing time to spread lies in Afghanistan and America. That is not warfare. Threatening and killing journalists is not war. America needs to know about the combat conditions, the war crimes, exactly what kind of missions our soldiers are being ordered to undertake. The new top general, Marine General Mattis - "
So it's a hell of a lot of fun to shoot them."

America doesn't know and doesn't care. The leaks are important. These leaks are the tip of the WAR-CRIME Iceberg. Building tomorrow's jihadi's today.

These wars must stop. They are not helping Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, Pakistan the world, the peace, the future - We are protecting nothing, we are making nothing safe. We are building a more dangerous world.
                 "It's fun to shoot some people..." Lt. General James Mattis

Give em Credt

   You don't give our fellow Americans, the party of REAGAN (Ketchup is a Vegetable) enough credit for their vision for America. TAX CUTS, for the richest among us, and greater tax burdens for those of us who (still) work to earn a living.

Tax Cuts for the RICH, Shipping Jobs Overseas, those (Patriotic Policies) and Deregulation have brought us the excellent state of America that we enjoy today. It seems to me, that if the REPUBLICAN policies of De-Regulation and Tax Cuts for the Rich were so good for us, we must be ready for more of that.

Wait, we are currently enjoying the benefit of DEREGULATION in the Gulf of Mexico. COOL - And getting the Government off the back of the Oil Companies that's great. Let's have more of that. I bet Louisiana wants more deregulation, don't you think?

Since the Wall Street Regulators backed off any oversight of the shenanigans of the people who created "products so complicated" that allowed them to spin massive bonuses from the Equity you used to have in your home - All I can say is SET THE MARKET FREE!

Maybe we should apologize to all those banker who stole from us, and then we bailed them out - please accept our apologies and another bundle of cash. And in your spare time JACK UP our credit card rates, PLEASE!

Since the massive Bush era TAX CUTS for the rich, allowed them to invest in new factories and jobs... oops overseas - oh, that one didn't work out any better.

So when the repos and the tea folks tell you they want government so small it can be drowned in a tub. That's the government that protects you from poisoned medicine, wild-eyed bankers, and funds the teachers and libraries, and the CDC and the FDA and the roads and bridges that we use.

And before you let someone bad mouth big government, remember - we the people are the government. Unless you don't vote. Then you can sit this one out!

Answering the Democratic Party Survey - by Rick Spisak

Since the Health Care reform was sold out many progressive placed support for Obama off the table.

Since the Obama administration turned its back on mortgage holder
and bailed out the bankers, many more progressives lost hope in the Obama administration.

When the Obama administration prosecuted whistle-blowers
and not the Bush Administration war criminals many more progressive lost much more faith in the Obama administration.

When the Obama administration continued the abuses of the Patriot Act a few of the last remaining progressives dropped their Obama administration support.

When the Obama Administration extended the abortion ban
to the health care insurance public policy all but the last holdouts gave up.

Where was the defender of Health Care for all?
Not at home in the White House?
Where was the protector of working people and mortgage holders. Was he out?
Where was the protector of Justice? too busy on the golf course with Goldman Sachs.
Where was the constitutional law professor who opposed the excesses of the Patriot Act, Abu Gharib and the Black sites?  Was he taking the waters at some gucci spa?
Where was the human rights activists when they rolled the christian rights antichoice agenda into the federal regs? Was he at prayer?

Unless the republicans run Palin or some other Neanderthals from the Ir-religious Right there will be no support for an administration that talked LEFT and GOVERNED RIGHT.

Q. What do the Democrats stand for?
Anything the lobbyists want!

Q. Why are you a democrat?
It's getting harder and harder to say

Once the democrats stood for working people
Once they heard other voices than the lobbyists.

If the president supported some progressive values we would be with him
but as long as he panders to the right - all he'll have is the lobbyists.

solidarity & peace

They broke it - You bought it!

LET'S SEE - first they destroy the GULF WITH THEIR GUSHER - Now, our US  BP Coast Guard has become their ENFORCERS - hell, they already have the BLACKWATER!

from Science Blogs - Journalists who come too close to oil spill clean-up efforts without permission could find themselves facing a $40,000 fine and even one to five years in prison under a new rule instituted by the Coast Guard late last week.

It's a move that outraged observers have decried as an attack on First Amendment rights. 

And CNN's Anderson Cooper describes the new rules as making it "very easy to hide incompetence or failure."

Our? Coast Guard order states that "vessels must not come within 20 meters [65 feet] of booming operations, boom, or oil spill response operations under penalty of law."

But since "oil spill response operations" apparently covers much of the clean-up effort on the beaches, CNN's Anderson Cooper describes the rule as banning reporters from "anywhere we need to be."

that the Coast Guard, now working as a branch of BEE PEE private security, and that the price of the death of the GULF OF MEXICO, And the death of all the sealife includes, YOUR First AMMENDMENT, and your right to know, what the POLLUTERS ARE UP TO, because their private security guards we might call them BLACKWATER... is now composed of what we used to call the US  BP Coast Guard

Cause they aren't guarding you, former swimmer and former fishermen and women. They're out there to protect OUR CORPORATE OVERLORD$!
