America – A Bankrupt Empire
Financial instability rooted in economic 'blowback' from our disastrous foreign policy
by Justin Raimondo

"On November 7, 2007, the U.S. Treasury announced that the national debt had breached $9 trillion for the first time ever... When George Bush became president in January 2001, it stood at approximately $5.7 trillion. Since then, it has increased by 45%. This huge debt can be largely explained by our defense expenditures in comparison with the rest of the world."

The working masses of men and women, they and they alone, are responsible for everything that takes place, the good things and the bad things. True enough, they suffer most from a war, but it is their apathy, craving for authority, etc., that is most responsible for making wars possible. It follows of necessity from this responsibility that the working masses of men and women, they and they alone, are capable of establishing lasting peace.

Now explain 17 trillion under Obama, a near 300% increase.

JFK and the Unspeakable
Why He Died and Why It Matters
by James W. Douglass
Touchstone Books, 2008, pxvii

Our citizen denial provides the ground for the government's doctrine of "plausible deniability". John F. Kennedy's assassination is rooted in our denial of our nation's crimes in World War II that began the Cold War and the nuclear arms race. As a growing precedent to JFK's assassination by his own national security state, we U.S. citizens supported our government when it destroyed whole cities (Hamburg, Dresden, Tokyo, Hiroshima, Nagasaki...), when it protected our Cold War security by world-destructive weapons, and when it carried out the covert murders of foreign leaders with "plausible deniability" in a way that was obvious to critical observers.

Nuclear Power Is Not The Answer
by Helen Caldicott
New Press, 2006, paperback, p143

Many years ago when the Shah - who had been put on the throne by the US.- was in power in Iran, enormous pressure was put on me, as secretary of state for energy, to agree to sell nuclear power stations to him. That pressure came from the Atomic Energy Authority, in conjunction with Westinghouse, who were anxious to promote their own design of reactor.

2011: A Brave New Dystopia
by Chris Hedges

[In '1984' George] Orwell warned of a world where books were banned.{In 'Brave New World' Aldous] Huxley warned of a world where no one wanted to read books. Orwell warned of a state of permanent war and fear. Huxley warned of a culture diverted by mindless pleasure. Orwell warned of a state where every conversation and thought was monitored and dissent was brutally punished. Huxley warned of a state where a population, preoccupied by trivia and gossip, no longer cared about truth or information. Orwell saw us frightened into submission. Huxley saw us seduced into submission. But Huxley, we are discovering, was merely the prelude to Orwell. Huxley understood the process by which we would be complicit in our own enslavement. Orwell understood the enslavement. Now that the corporate coup is over, we stand naked and defenseless. We are beginning to understand, as Karl Marx knew, that unfettered and unregulated capitalism is a brutal and revolutionary force that exploits human beings and the natural world until exhaustion or collapse.

The "Deep State" behind U.S. democracy
by Peter Dale Scott
April 6, 2011


Jimmy Carter was elected promising cuts in the defence budget, and before he had left, he had committed the Defense Department to huge increases which we associate with the Reagan administration but were initiated before.

As a consequence, under the surface a massive campaign for increased defense spending, mobilized by wealthy military industrialists through the Committee on the Present Danger, brought public opinion to reinforce Brzezinski’s push for a more militant U.S. presence and policy, particularly in the Indian Ocean.

I wondered why lisw didn't smack Lyndi for 'pandering', and will admit that I thought you had.

However, I neither agree in total with McCain's assessment, nor do I completely disagree with it. It's debatable, whether or not the actions of the women in question had as much to do with the deal to reopen government operations, as did the circumstances under which it was closed in the first place, and the repercussions the nation faced if it remains so.

I tend to think the latter has at least as much weight as an indication of the necessity for negotiations, as the gender of those who negotiated the possibility for resolution.

I put that post about McCain up for perusal - not in concurrence with its conclusions. Lyndi apparently approved of it. Big deal.

These guys (McCain & Pryor) were posing for votes. It’s what they do. I’m a bit surprised they didn’t find some Hispanics to prop up while they were at it.

Women Are the Only Adults Left in Washington
With the federal government at shutdown's door, the 20 female Senate members are setting new standards for civility and bipartisanship. Look out, old boys' club

By Jay Newton-Small Oct. 16, 20130

This article will appear in the October 28, 2013 issue of TIME under the title “The Last Politicians.”
==
At one of the darkest moments of the government shutdown, with markets dipping and both ends of Pennsylvania Avenue hurling icy recriminations, Maine Republican Susan Collins went to the Senate floor to do two things that none of her colleagues had yet attempted. She refrained from partisan blame and proposed a plan to end the crisis.“I ask my Democratic and Republican colleagues to come together,” Collins said on Oct. 8.“We can do it. We can legislate responsibly and in good faith.”

Senate Appropriations Committee chair Barbara Mikulski, a Maryland Democrat, happened to be standing nearby, and she soon picked up a microphone and joined in.“Let’s get to it. Let’s get the job done,” she said.“I am willing to negotiate. I am willing to compromise.” Ten minutes later, a third Senator stood to speak.“I am pleased to stand with my friend from Maine, Senator Collins, as she has described a plan which I think is pretty reasonable,” said Alaska Republican Lisa Murkowski.“I think it is pretty sensible.”

As with most anything that happens on C-SPAN, the burst of bipartisan vibes was meant to send a message. But behind the scenes, the wheels really were turning. Most of the Senate’s 20 women had gathered the previous night for pizza, salad and wine in the offices of New Hampshire Senator Jeanne Shaheen, a Democrat. All the buzz that night was about Collins’ plan to reopen the government with some basic compromises. Senator Amy Klobuchar, a Minnesota Democrat, proposed adding the repeal of the unpopular medical-­device tax. Senate Agriculture Committee chair Debbie Stabenow suggested pulling revenue from her stalled farm bill. In policy terms, it was a potluck dinner.

In the hours that followed, those discussions attracted more Senators, including some men, and yielded a plan that would lead to genuine talks between Senate leaders Harry Reid and Mitch ­McConnell to end the shutdown. The ­pieces were all there: extending the debt ceiling and reopening the government with minor adjustments to the ­implementation of Obamacare. No one doubted the origin.“The women are an incredibly positive force because we like each other,” Klobuchar boasted to TIME as the negotiations continued.“We work together well, and we look for common ground.”

It’s quite an irony that the U.S. Senate was once known for having the worst vestiges of a private men’s club: unspoken rules, hidden alliances, off-hours socializing and an ethic based at least as much on personal relationships as merit to get things done. That Senate—a fraternal paradise that worked despite all its obvious shortcomings—is long gone. And now the only place the old boys’ network seems to function anymore is among the four Republicans and 16 Democrats who happen to be women."

Our leaders are cruel because only those willing to be inordinately cruel and remorseless can hold positions of leadership in the foreign policy establishment. People capable of expressing a full human measure of compassion and empathy toward faraway powerless strangers do not become president of the United States, or vice president, or secretary of state, or national security adviser."

"Delaware officials are celebrating the state's first health insurance exchange enrollee," The Associated Press reported yesterday. "Department of Health and Social Service officials have declared 59-year-old Janice Baker of Selbyville the first resident to enroll in the marketplace."

It only took 16 days to find someone in Delaware willing to sign up.
At this rate, by the year 4882, every uninsured Delaware resident will be covered. And Delaware only received $13,000,000 in grants for implementation of its health marketplace...

The people....er, person....has spoken! Take THAT, Cruz.
