    Was NSA Head Insider Trading?

    if he wasn’t, somoene was

    I remeber saying back when we first disccovered the “programs” (and there are more then one programs), that we were going about the debate using the wrong perspective;

    I was imploring progressives to use “they are stealing from us and THAT’S why we cannot allow warrantless infiltration of our private information’

    I KNEW there would be stealingand here we are

    I’ve taken to beginning every “debate” with a person who gets their info from fox with;

    You know fox is owned and directed by that foreign fat corporate fat cat murdoch right?

    puts them right on the defensive.

    I remember a good friend of mine asked me my opinion about a wsj article, I began with “Chad, I don’t understand why you keep referencing sources owned by murdoch, if it’s in his publication you can’t rely on it”

    I then went and showed him the same article written by the ap, what a world of difference in perspective on the same story

    Thanks for staying true Peter, and being strong.

    I know some of the people Bush hired in Iraq actually did mean well, you being one of those with integrity, but the Bush administration never meant well, he wanted to take Iraq even before he became president, and they knew they were making up lies to get us into war, and they knew they were going to give the petro assets to their pals in big oil, the Bush administration never meant well.I

  • man oh man, I have got to use that factoid, it’s incredible, you should try to get that out to the actual progressives who are in office

  • could you give me a link?
    I would love to have that amo at the ready when I am in discussion with a person addicted to the station that writes wrestling scripts and makes believe it’s news

  • well, most of the dems are now corporate bought as well, those that might not be are not as informed about it as you are

  • Sumner knows all the newspapermen in the country– or better
    yet, he’s buddies with Horace Greeley

    latter day murdoch!!

    I have begun to begin any argument I am habving with a faux news addict;

    “well, if you are using any source owned by murdoch you have no factual ground to stand on”

    “try to find a source that agrees with you, not owned by murdoch, then you might have an actual fact”

    works pretty good lately

  • all of those progressive programs being founded by republicans, who would’ve thought?

    I’m surprised democrats dand progressives on’t point those things out

    funny, growing up in far rockaway queens, my mom loved the “rubber tree” and she planted a bunch in our yard. I had no idea the rubber tree was the milk weed till this video that explains the monarch needs it to survive in the summer, my corner had tons of monarchs, we thought they [...]

    2) we need higher taxes on them to facilitate greater equality

    true, but incomplete higher taxes on the wealthy is supposed to equalize the vast pool of regressive taxation we could probably get rid of the “higher taxes on the wealthy” meme if instead we addressed “there are too many taxes that are higher on the [...]

    They do so because they are ideologically opposed to federal social programs

    but most people are not against social programs, once they find out what they really are, the “Libertarians” have one the marketing, they haven’t won the practical applicatrion

    , and if you take away their current argument (“because no money”) they will just substitute [...]

    Raise your hand if you weren’t surprised when fancy films of beheadings resulted in bombings?

    raise your hand if you were not surprised this is one of the results of the cheney torture program

  • What is the petro industry position?

    surprised you didn’t know this, it happens to be common knowledge, the petro position is that man made global warming is a hoax, as provided by the Koch suckers.

    To provide people with gas to burn?

    HAR, you are using their product as the their position, you are TOO funny! this is deadpanning?

    Sounds like a fat person complaining that the fast food industry will not change their position

    it seems you are creating an analogy based on your deadpaned joke, or the if not a joke, the mistaken answer you provide, rather then the actual answer

  • we are doomed, the petro industry will not change their position, the politicians will continue doing nothing and actually advocate AGAINST emission restrictions

    which reminds me of the documentary series about the planet Kryton, the top scientists knew the planet would become extinct, but the powers that be, in order to maintain their positions, ignored the threat, advocated against the threat and insisted the scientists were wrong.

    The only thing inaccurate about the documentary about the planet Krypton, I do not believe kal el ever made it to our planet
