    He is a wily fox indeed. One can’t help but admire his brass!

  • Mahalo. Yours is a good and reasonable approach to two silly old men.

  • Ralph Nader/Elizabeth Warren. The last (LAST) thing the American People need is Hillary Clinton as president.

  • Mr. Snowden is keeping this issue front and center on the world stage. That is useful to all of us.

    All the rest is just “disinformation” not as someone said a “hoax.” As a famous spy (Maxwell Smart) once said, “A hoax by any other name is just disinformation.”

    When I discovered Putin is against GMO foods and hates Monsanto with a degree of vigor one reserves for only the worst of corporate criminals, then I must say I felt that he is not all bad. Additionally, he had the good sense to throw a lifeline to Obama when Obama was rattling the sword [...]

    To me, public health care, pollution of the atmosphere, are problems with the same root cause. Some historians say that in the west, with the guilds and the monetization of medical knowledge came the now common assumption that public health care was in the end just a profit center. Energy. Coal in it’s present use [...]

  • Thank Yew!

    Perhaps it is time for President Obama and friends to leave the Cold War dream world and return to reality to address issues that the American people actually care about such as jobs.

    Gov. Brown finally became his father. Change is in the air. Final transition Governor Moonbeam becomes Governor Brain Fart.

    I hear you. It just doesn’t seem as clear to me here in the pacific that that it is the case (increasing numbers are turning…..etc.). Where might I read a reliable study or examine data that reflect(s) your conclusions?

    In any event I will read the Alistair Cooke book. Mahalo for the reference.

    As far as the Ukraine is concerned it has always been a giant pain in the Russian ass. During the Soviet times, in the Army, Ukrainian recruits would routinely AWOL at harvest. It was a joke. These folks have a fierce independent contrary cultural spirit to my observation. Religion? There are 21 major religions on [...]

    And because it nullifies Genesis—the alpha that sets up Armageddon’s omega—the science of evolution remains the biggest challenge to the veracity of that plan. If evolution is right, then Genesis is wrong. If Genesis is wrong, then God is either a liar or superfluous. And if we are not created in God’s image or living out God’s [...]

    I’m always astounded how folks can ignore the rest of the planet and pretend this particular cultural/religious group worships the “default” “God” for the earth and the rest of the human monkeys. It is an awesome feat of tunnel vision indeed to look only thru the Judeo/Christian/Muslim lens of the world. Oh, and if memory [...]

    You got it x’ackley right IMO

    Money out politics. No escaping responsibility through corporate bankruptcy. Restrictions of frequent reincorporation. Making it easier for ordinary people to vote. A government transparent to us, not spying on us.

  • One word: “clusterf*ck”

  • Disgusting. In the first place, Obama needn’t have set this whole shibai bullshit process up. The “caver in chief” just scored a big hit again on the American people. When and how will we ever get enough of this “rape” of the populace by politicians? Disgusting!

    Politics cannot survive on incrementalists alone. It cannot survive with only an inside game, and a political science conception of the art of the possible. Ultimately it needs people on the outside who look at what the incrementalists have produced, and say “No.” It doesn’t make those people juvenile, it doesn’t make them unrealistic. It makes them an integral part of the democratic process.

    tell the man ….

    Mahalo, this is a good truthful diary. Egypt this morning announced that it has decided to open their GAZA borders to Palestinians which will change the calculus methinks. It appears to be the start of a more reasonable period where the world will judge Israel for what it really does rather than what AIPAC says [...]

    You know, seabirds that nest on the ocean, nest at night in a big circle. The sharks and other predators know of this phenomena and are careful to feed from the outside in, taking their victims as quickly as possible from the perimeter of the circle. The birds seem less aware of their fellows beng snatched from the edges, but will squawk and raise up into the air if the sharks feed from the center of the circle.

    At 68, I’m at the edge of the circle, my SSI is in jeopardy, already health insurance started to rise in October and many docs will not take medicare patients at all. I shout from the fucking blog rooftops but it seems to do no good.

    Oh, maybe that will change now we got a Hawaii born president! Not!
