The Shock Doctrine: Naomi Klein on the Rise of Disaster Capitalism
http://tinyurl.com/2aqdqh September 17th, 2007
Pinochet's coup in Chile. The massacre in Tiananmen Square. The collapse of the Soviet Union. September 11th, 2001. The war on Iraq. The Asian tsunami and Hurricane Katrina. Award-winning investigative journalist Naomi Klein brings together all of these world-changing events in her new book, "The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism." In her first national broadcast interview since the publication of "The Shock Doctrine," Klein joins us in our firehouse studio for the hour. Klein writes, "The history of the contemporary free market was written in shocks." She argues that "Some of the most infamous human rights violations of the past thirty-five years, which have tended to be viewed as sadistic acts carried out by anti-democratic regimes, were in fact either committed with the deliberate intent of terrorizing the public or actively harnessed to prepare the ground for the introduction of radical free-market reforms

As sad as the truth is, that is the best time for making investments. There is nothing legally wrong with that. Now, on a moral level, I'm sure it would be debatable by both sides. Me, I do not think it is right to to prosper at the expense of others. Investing is just that though. You invest to save and make money. Another double edge sword that can be debated.

Texas principal fired for telling students to speak English

The Texas principal who was placed on administrative leave and then fired for telling Hispanic students at her middle school that they should speak English in the classroom can now speak freely — the gag order has expired — and says that her request only mirrored what’s written in state law.

“There were no consequences for speaking Spanish in class,” he told the newspaper.“In fact, Ms. Lacey stated her respect for the Hispanic culture and language.”
Ms. Lacey herself is finally allowed to tell her story. A gag order that was imposed on her during the school board’s investigation of the matter has finally expired, and the former Hempstead principal wrote a letter to the Houston newspaper, explaining her side of the story.
“I informed students it would be best to speak English in the classrooms to the extent possible, in order to help prepare them for [state] tests,” she wrote, the Daily Mail reported.“It is important to note that I did not ban the use of Spanish anywhere in the school or at any time.… Teachers had reported to me that they had experienced instances in which students had been asked to stop talking during instruction, and they responded that it was their right to speak Spanish — ignoring the fact that they shouldn’t have been speaking [in any language] during class without permission. The perception of the teachers was that students were being disrespectful and disrupting learning, and they believed they could get away with it by claiming racism.”
Ms. Lacey said the incident was blown way out of proportion — and that she only advocated what Texas states in its code as law.
That code section, as reported by Inquistir.com , reads:“English is the basic language of this state. Public schools are responsible for providing a full opportunity for all students to become competent in speaking, reading, writing and comprehending the English language.… The mastery of basic English skills is a prerequisite for effective participation in the state’s educational program. Using English to the extent possible would also allow non-Spanish-speaking teachers a better opportunity to assess understanding and learning.”

You have serious mental problems, Rose. I suppose those words, grammar and style belong to "GR" as well. If that is the case, then I agree with me for plagiarizing GR's words, grammar, style and what other b.s. you want to attach. lol God are you ever paranoid.
I was referring to all the disagreements you've had with posters since you began posting as "Lady Liberty."

No, I do not "have serious mental problems," but I thought you didn't resort to personals insults and were so above that sort of thing.

I know you're GR, but that in no way makes me "paranoid." He always used "b.s." with periods. LOL!

There are so many dead giveaways, but you can deny it all you like and play this game to your heart's content, GR.

He can't do that legitimately back up his allegations. There is no defense for most of his stated positions which aren't from a thinking person as you are well aware. When you "bust" him on his boolsheet, he just decides not to engage and continues on posting absolute nonsense with no facts to back it up. After awhile of reading that garbage, I decided not to be polite. In fact, he's either GR or GR's older brother or somebody who is just as challenged.

Roll Call of Shame on “Too Big to Fail”
May 8, 2010 / http://tinyurl.com/2dfldsk
Future historians will look back on the financial crisis of the last couple years and wonder why Congress didn’t act sooner or more aggressively to prevent such a crisis from recurring.
Last week, by an astonishingly wide margin, the Senate voted down a bill sponsored by Sherrod Brown and Ted Kaufman that would have limited the size of financial institutions.
Here’s the roll call of shame:
Daniel Akaka
Max Baucus
Evan Bayh
Michael Bennet
Thomas Carper
Kent Conrad
Chris Dodd
Dianne Feinstein
Kirsten Gillibrand
Kay Hagan
Daniel Inouye
Tim Johnson
John Kerry
Amy Klobuchar
Herb Kohl
Mary Landrieu
Frank Lautenberg
Claire McCaskill
Robert Menendez
Bill Nelson
Ben Nelson
Jack Reed
Chuck Schumer
Jeanne Shaheen
Jon Tester
Mark Udall
Mark Warner
Several of these Senators, like Conrad and Tester, pretend to be progressive populists.
Schumer and Dodd pretend to be leaders on financial reform.
And John Kerry?

Fool Me Once, Shame On You, Fool Me Twice, Shame On Me!
You and I both know the whole system is corrupt and both Republicans and Democrats like it that way.
Fox News and MSNBC are both corporate hack talking air heads loyal to these two corrupt parties.
Most Republicans are conservative in name only. RINOS
Most Democrats are liberal in name only. LINOS
Obamacare is not a liberal health plan which would have provided Single Payer, Medicare For All.
Obamacare is more accurately Romneycare which was endorsed by Bob Dole and the Heritage Foundation back in the 1990s.
Obama/Clinton, Bush/Cheney John Kerry, John McCain, et cetera are all corporate hacks loyal to Wall Street.
They have to divide and conquer our ignorant masses.
There are a lot of "in name only" lol. Reid is liberal in advocating for illegals and in spending money. Pelosi looks like she is drunk most of the time. Regards, the dems are nothing of a sort like the dems we had during the JFK days and prior to that. That pendulum has swung the other way.

"Our military is a type of Socialism that gets paid by the government, so does our Police and Firefighters in cities all across America."

I would not label that as any form of socialism. Many public services are paid by either federal, state, county or local budgets. I think the Military is the only one in the above group that is paid by federal. Firefighters and Police are not federal employes. They are local, county and state.
Firefighters are city and county. Park ranger are either state or federal and get paid either by state or federal. Still that is not a form of socialism. Pay is at varying levels.

<quoted text>
That's an interesting concept. But, having worked for a corporation where the most skilled and educated executives made decisions about the pension plan and invested both corporate and employee contributions (including their OWN personal contributions) where everybody either sank or swam together. Personally, I like a government where all participants (including the representaitves of government) rise or fall based on the decisions made. In other words, nobody wins at anybody else's expense and everybody gains when the decisions are wisely made.

What I don't like is government representatives whose well-being is NOT connected to the well-being of the people they were elected to represent. The corruption in government has nothing to do with the social welfare safety net other than the federal government's surrender to the financial interests of capitalists whose fortunes are made by gouging Americans for such essential necessities as health care, lights and power, heat and gasoline, food and housing, education and training, and at the expense of clean water and a safe environment..

Every American taxpayer EXPECTS that their contributions should and will lead to a secure nation, a safe infrastructure, an orderly and peaceful society in which to live and to which we contribute. Why on earth else would we pay taxes anyway? Maybe I didn't understand what you meant. If not, sorry.

I do not agree Sunnier. In many instances posters are much bolder sitting behind a computer screen than if they were sitting conversing with you in person. It doesn't always work but I try to visualize the person and treat them as respectfully as possible. Hiding behind a computer screen doesn't provide anyone the right to be rude and berate others. I realize it is very difficult in a forum setting when discussing politics. Deep rooted views do not always bring out the best in us. I have no problem with anyone disagreeing with me. We can just agree to disagree .and move on. Life is too short to be full of bitterness and anger.

Projections for the upcoming elections are not much change is going to happen. In all seriousness, I do not see anyone worth voting for or keeping in office. Yeah, seats will exchange but it will be same'ol same'ol just another day. Back in the previous decades, we marched the streets when their was any unrest within our government. Not so much as I do believe we have become lazy. There needs to be more involvement with our government and what they are doing. Letters that millions send do nothing, the voting booths are suspiciously rigged, we have no double check or keeping our politicians in check. The young walk around with their heads in the clouds or they are too busy having fun to be bothered about their future when they are not complaining they had to work. That is not a statement to include every young kid. I know some are involved, just not many imo.

I agree, it is hard and it is our compassion that gets used against us all to often. Thank you, as I do yours too.:-)

All of them - paid for by taxpayers' contributions either at the local, state or federal level. We all pay the salaries of those who render those services.

Do you have a personal problem with Nancy Pelosi? You don't think you can attack her record? Come on, now. Of course, you can find plenty of fault with her performance that has nothing whatsoever to do with her looking "drunk". I don't think she has that kind of reputation, but that seems to be all you can come up with. If you'd read more, you'd be capable of valid criticism. But, you don't. If you want to lamblast Nancy, here's a nice little video attack that also includes Speaker Boehner:

English is the basic language in most states. This is just another moral decay in our cities where illegals and others can cry racism to evade their misconduct in the classroom. If truth be told, the misconduct is not just in the classrooms. Its almost every where you go.
