OBAMA THE PEOPLES PRESIDENT LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLO LOOOLOOLLThe Obama administration’s largesse when it comes to six- and seven-figure compensation packages for GM executives stands in stark contrast to its attitude toward GM workers. In 2009, Obama insisted that the pay of all GM new-hires be reduced to half the pay of veteran workers as part of the bailout of the auto company.

The SIGTARP report underscores the cynicism and duplicity that underlay the creation of the pay czar position from the outset. It was never anything more than a smokescreen to dupe the public into believing limits were being placed on executive pay at bailed-out firms.

The public was overwhelmingly opposed to TARP when it was passed by Congress in early October 2008. In March of 2009, public anger exploded when it was revealed that AIG had paid out $168 million in retention bonuses to executives at its Financial Products division—the very unit whose speculative bets had brought the company to the point of collapse. Bills began making their way through Congress to limit the pay of executives at bailed-out banks and corporations.

Obama and his treasury secretary, Timothy Geithner, came out against the bills, with Geithner famously declaring that the AIG pay agreements had to be honored because of the “sanctity of contracts.” The intervention by the Obama administration killed the proposed legislation on executive pay.

Soon after, the administration established the special master for compensation (pay czar) position to placate public anger and create the appearance that something was being done to rein in the avarice of Wall Street. As the SIGTARP report makes clear, this was just another maneuver to deceive the people.

Here about the vet who had all four limbs blown off? He just got two whole arm transplants. In time they will function just like his real arms right down to the finger tips.

Right now we are using people's DNA to 'grow' hearts, lungs and many other body parts. In time we will be able to grow a new body including the brain. The brain data will be transferred and you will have a new body. Want to live forever?

THE LYING BLACK SELL-OUTS BOOT LICKING POS When print or broadcast news outlets grab a compelling story, only to distract attention away from what the public needs to know, that's called “burying the lead.” That's what Melissa Harris-Perry did in her Jan. 26 segment on whether the nationwide wave of public school closings were “racist” or not.

Melissa Harris-Perry Buries The Lead Story on National Wave of Public School Closings

by BAR managing editor Bruce A. Dixon

Melissa Harris-Perry devoted an eight minute segment of her January 26 MSNBC show to the question of whether the current wave of public school closings, indisputably concentrated in poor black and brown communities across the nation, was racist. She had four panelists on the segment, only one of whom seemed connected to and knowledgeable about the issue, a New York City parent.

They batted the thing around, and all pretty much agreed that it was a dirty shame, a tragic waste closing hundreds of public schools in places like New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, destructive to most ideas of community, and that yeah, it probably was indeed racist. Harris-Perry called it an “epidemic” of school closures. She noted that neighborhoods identify especially with their high schools, and closing them violates the integrity of communities.

Both Harris-Perry and the NYC parent activist brought up the proliferation of high-stakes tests which judged urban teachers and students as “failing” thus providing some of the immediate justification for the school closings, though this was something the discussion passed over rather than dwelled upon. The NYC activist declared that she and the Save Our Schools Coalition intended to be in DC during the coming week to press for recognition of the fact that school closings were racist, ask for a meeting with the president and for a national moratorium on school closures.

What Harris-Perry and her panelists failed to do was explain exactly ---- or even vaguely --- what's causing these racist school closures that are wrecking communities. Labeling them “racist” describes only a single symptom of the “epidemic” while telling us nothing about its cause. The host and panelists didn't mention the Obama administration's signature Race To The Top Program even once. For a show whose Twitter handle is #nerdland, this is a pretty significant omission.

oh please. we'll never know the name of the 'tipster'. but nonetheless on the word of 'someone' you guys will never let it go.

does anyone wonder why the GOP thinks it needs a rebrand? there's a perfect example.

Harris-Perry is far too intelligent not to know that Obama's Race To The Top policies are deliberately, not accidentally driving the wave of school closings, or that President Obama is deep in the pocket of the charter school sugar daddies. She knows too that there are deep connections between the money spent on the warfare state and bank bailouts and the money available to support public education. And she's well aware that nobody's career has ever been harmed by supporting the policies of a sitting president, no matter how vile (or even racist) those policies might be.

The black political class, based as it is on the fiction that it “represents” an underprivileged minority defined by race, is perfectly willing to entertain a shallow discussion of whether school closings are “racist.” But explaining to her audience where the pressure for high stakes testing, for school closures, for teacher firings, for turning public schools into profitable low-cost holding tanks are coming from --- if it means disagreeing with the First Black President, it ain't gonna happen.

If corporate school reform was something Republicans and Democrats disagreed on --- if elected Republicans were doing it and elected Democrats were against it, Melissa Harris-Perry might see fit to focus real intellectual wattage on the subject, and truly inform her audience. She and her guests have no trouble cackling at evil Republicans. But when the evil is bipartisan, and a black Democrat in the White House, her career is more important than the truth. She knows the microphone and the audience ain't hers either, it's MSNBC's. If she doesn't tow the line, maybe they'll give Michael Eric Dyson a show instead, he'll know how to stay in his lane.

Barney Frank can throw his male page off his New York hotel balcony and run a male prostitution racket out of his house and be the Chairman of the House Financial Services Committee because he's a Democrat.

Menendez is hispanic. You can have video footage of him clubbing baby seals and making demo videos for NAMBLA and the Democrats won't touch him.

Like boxers instructed at the beginning of every fight to “protect yourselves at all times”, MHP knows her obligation is to protect the Democratic party elite, and the president, and to protect millions of voters who supported Barack Obama and his party from knowing what they really voted for. In this case that meant drawing attention away from the charter school profiteers and sugar daddies, and their intimate ties with this president, his secretary of education, and a whole layer of Democratic and often black politicians. So where the lead story on school closings should have on what's causing the public school closings, who's pushing and profiting from the public school closings, who is resisting those forces and how we can stop school closings and protect public education, Melissa Harris-Perry buried that lead. She just pronounced it all a hot racist mess, and hosted a rambling and pointless discussion about an “epidemic” without pointing to preventions, treatments or cures. What a waste.

Truth is no SIN wrote:
A lot of what we say and do becomes habit-forming. Groundhog Day 2013 could serve as a reminder that some political habits should be kicked. Here are a few:
**“Defense budget”
No, it’s not a defense budget. It’s a military budget.
But countless people and organizations keep saying they want to cut “the defense budget” or reduce “defense spending.”
Anyone who wants to challenge the warfare state should dispense with this misnomer. We don’t object to “defense”— what we do oppose, vehemently, is military spending that has nothing to do with real defense and everything to do with killing people, enforcing geopolitical control and making vast profits for military contractors. And no, they’re not “defense contractors.”
President Eisenhower’s farewell address didn’t warn against a “defense-industrial complex.”
The fact that there’s something officially called the Department of Defense — formerly the Department of War, until 1947 — doesn’t make its huge budget a “defense budget,” any more than renaming the Bureau of Prisons “the Bureau of Love” would mean we should talk about wanting to cut the “love budget.”
**“Pro-life”
Last week, midway through a heated debate on the PBS “NewsHour,” the president of NARAL Pro-Choice America said that some politicians get elected while hiding their extreme anti-abortion positions — but would be rejected at the ballot box “if they ran on their pro-life values.”
“Pro-life” values? Not a label that abortion-rights advocates should use for opponents of a woman’s right to choose an abortion. One of the main reasons those opponents keep calling themselves “pro-life” is they want to imply that supporters of abortion rights are anti-life. Why help?
**“Globalization”
In many realms, globalization can be positive, even essential. For instance, wonderful results flow from globalizing solidarity among workers around the world. Likewise, the planetary spread of awareness and cooperation among people taking action to protect the environment, stop human-rights abuses and end war.
Corporate globalization is another matter. Its destructive effects are lashing every continent with voracious commercialization along with exploitive races to the bottom for cheap labor, extraction of raw materials, privatization, flattening of protective tariffs, overriding of national laws that protect workers and replacement of democratic possibilities with the rule of big money.
Putting “corporate” before “globalization” may seem cumbersome, but it’s worth another three syllables. There’s a world of difference between globalization for human cooperation and corporate globalization. Blurring it all together misses the chance to clarify the distinct possibilities.
I like it except for the indictment of corporate globalization. Especially the bit about the misnomer: "pro-life". What a crock, a leftover from an old ad campaign.
