TEXAS REPUBLICAN SENATOR PHIL GRAMM & ENRON MANIPULATING OIL PRICES./ Michael Greenberger, Former Director, Commodities Future Trading Commission 1997-1999./ August 5, 2009 / WASHINGTON, DC: June 24, 2008
Michael Greenberger discusses the role of unregulated oil speculators on the buying and selling of oil futures. He says legislation passed in 2000 created an environment where oil speculators influence the current day price of oil and other crude products.

From Inventing Oil Derivatives To Deregulating The Market
June 6, 2011 / http://tinyurl.com/3ar3tlh
In April, ThinkProgress caused a stir when we uncovered a series of Koch Industries corporate documents revealing the company’s role as an oil speculator. Like many oil companies, Koch uses legitimate hedging products to create price stability. However, the documents reveal that Koch is also participating in the unregulated derivatives markets as a financial player, buying and selling speculative products that are increasingly contributing to the skyrocketing price of oil. Excessive energy speculation today is at its highest levels ever, and even Goldman Sachs now admits that at least $27 of the price of crude oil is a result from reckless speculation rather than market fundamentals of supply and demand./ http://thinkprogress.org/report/koch-oil-spec...

Terrorism prevention Act--Conference Report
Orrin Hatch: Mr. President, again, in the real world, in the case of the Unabomber or a terrorist where there is a real threat or an immediate concern, you do not need this provision to get an emergency wiretap. All the Senator's motion does is expand the number of crimes that would trigger the wiretap statute. This amendment was offered during the Senate debate. It was defeated. It was not a part of the Senate bill. It was not a part of the House bill. It is not a part of our conference report, and rightly so. I oppose this provision that could expand emergency wiretap authority to permit the Government to begin a wiretap prior to obtaining court approval in a greater range of cases than the law presently allows. I personally find this proposal troubling. I am concerned that this provision, if enacted, would unnecessarily broaden emergency wiretap authority. Under current law, such authority exists when life is in danger, when the national security is threatened, or when an organized crime conspiracy is involved. In the real world, we do not need this amendment to get emergency wiretap authority, and that is a fact.
Let me also say that this authority is constrained by a requirement that surveillance be approved by the Court within 48 hours, but that authority already exists in those areas I have addressed.

You did not show any proof that any Republican interfered with the CIA/DIA's intelligence. It was not until the Patriot Act removed a Jimmy Carter law that prevented the FBI and the CIA/DIA from talking to each other.
Jimmy Carter almost totally dismantled the CIA and it took Reagan almost his whole eight years to restore the CIA.

Republican Party is ‘full of racists,” according to Colin Powell’s chief of staff Colonel Wilkerson / October 27, 2012 / http://tinyurl.com/9vggpdv
Secretary of State Colin Powell’s former chief of staff says the Republican Party is “full of racists,” many of whom are simply working to knock President Obama out of office.
Speaking on on MSNBC’s “The Ed Show,” Col Lawrence Wilkerson, Powell’s former chief of staff, said the Republican Party’s opposition to the Obama administration is rooted in race.
“Let me just be candid: My party is full of racists,” said Wilkerson.”And the real reason a considerable portion of my party wants President Obama out of the White House has nothing to do with the content of his character, nothing to do with his competence as commander in chief and president, and everything to do with the color of his skin. And that’s despicable.”

Patient : Hello, Dr Wolf
Dr. Wolf : Good morning, sir, what can I do for you?
Patient : I'd like a general medical exam, Doctor, you know, just preventive medicine. They say it's the best kind.
Dr. Wolf : Oh, I totally agree with you. Let's get on with it. But first, what insurance coverage did you say you had?
Patient : I didn't say, Doctor. I don't have health coverage.
Dr. Wolf : But why?
Patient : You see , I'm self-employed and can't afford over $1,000 in premiums for my family and myself.
Dr. Wolf : That's ok, sir. That will be $500
Patient : Gee, Doctor, there's myself, my wife and 1 child.
Dr. Wolf : No problem, that'll be $1,000 for you and your wife and free for your child.

Why Does The United States Government Need A “Raisin Reserve?”
DOUG MATACONIS · FRIDAY, JULY 26, 2013
Until I read about a Florida Congressman who wants to eliminate it, I had no idea the United States has a “raisin reserve,” and I’ve got to wonder why it ever existed in the first place:
A Florida congressman has introduced a bill that would eliminate one of the U.S. government’s most unusual institutions: the Raisin Administrative Committee, keepers of the national raisin reserve.
The raisin reserve is a program established by the Truman administration which gives the Agriculture Department a heavy-handed power to meddle in the supply and demand for raisins.
To limit the supply of raisins on the market, the government can simply take tons of raisins from the farmers who grew them. The raisins go into a “reserve.” They are often kept off the U.S. market: sold overseas, perhaps, or given to needy schoolchildren.
Sometimes, the farmers don’t get paid a cent in return.
A decade ago, California farmer Marvin Horne defied the reserve, refusing to hand over his raisins to the government. The Agriculture Department took him to court, and this year the case reached the U.S. Supreme Court.
The high court sent Horne’s case back to an appeals court in California, which will soon hear Horne’s argument that the Constitution prohibits government from taking his raisins without just compensation. Horne’s case was featured in a Washington Post article in early July.
On Thursday, Rep. Trey Radel (R)introduced a bill that would eliminate the reserve’s legal underpinnings. It would end the 1949 rule, Marketing Order 989, that created the Raisin Administrative Committee and the reserve.
“In my opinion, this is nothing short of theft,” said Radel, a freshman member from the Fort Myers area. He said he had no ties to the raisin industry or to raisin farmers, mainly located thousands of miles away in Northern California.

Molasses spill in Honolulu Harbor poses calamity for marine life
As much as 1,400 tons of molasses spill into Honolulu Harbor, killing thousands of fish, and officials say there's no way to clean it up.

By Matt Pearce
September 13, 2013, 3:37 p.m.
Fish began dying en masse in the waters around Honolulu after hundreds of thousands of gallons of molasses spilled into Honolulu Harbor early this week, and there's nothing officials can do to clean it up.

Thousands of fish have died from the sugary sludge. Crabs lay dead along the harbor bottom while more fish floated listlessly, some seeming to gasp above the surface of the water contaminated by the syrupy sweetener.

The spill is one of the worst man-made disasters to hit Hawaii in recent memory, officials said, not least because no one has quite seen anything like it.

London Beer Flood
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The London Beer Flood happened on 16 October 1814 in the parish of St. Giles, London, England. At the Meux and Company Brewery[1] on Tottenham Court Road,[1][2] a huge vat containing over 135,000 imperial gallons (610,000 L) of beer ruptured, causing other vats in the same building to succumb in a domino effect. As a result, more than 323,000 imperial gallons (1,470,000 L) of beer burst out and gushed into the streets. The wave of beer destroyed two homes and crumbled the wall of the Tavistock Arms Pub, trapping teenage employee Eleanor Cooper under the rubble.
