Forgetting. Over half the details are forgotten 60 minutes after exposure – only the narrative is remembered. So, lie about the details, create a narrative & then get your war on!

A country with a border dispute can not join NATO. http://www.stratfor.com/the-hub/prospects-entering-nato#axzz3Byv6PYe6 I have read recently that the IMF is prohibited from lending to countries at war. Ukraine independence was never a US priority throughout the Cold War. http://original.antiwar.com/buchanan/2014/07/24/is-putin-worse-than-stalin/ Why did the EU (and the US) immediately recognize a violent right-wing-lead coup government (these violent protesters [...]

“Imperial Metals claims they still don’t know what caused the breach and had no inkling of trouble beforehand.” If this is true then Imperial Metals is admitting they are inept. “Bennett’s pointing to the evidence of three consecutive water tests that met official guidelines for “arsenic, copper, mercury and selenium” …” Well then, any volunteers [...]

Has anyone actually read the Bible?
God brags of killing 2,821,364 specific people.
God kills another another unspecified number of people estimated at 26 million.
Can Hillary explain any of these killings listed in favorite book?
“… why we shouldn’t listen to the neocons on Iraq, ever.”
That would be Hillary Clinton.
1. NO job protections;
2. NO reward for work experience;
3. NO reward for any additional college degrees;

Yea, the people who apply for this job are going to make your kid smarter.
More crazy – watched a South Carolina Republican primary US senate candidates debate. All wanted lower taxes & less regulation – the same conservative policy that resulted in the 1929 Great Depression and the 2008 Great Recession. There is no period in American history when conservative economic policy has been a success.
The crazy would normally be a small, angry and ineffective voice. Austerity pushes people to the crazy extremes. The recent gains by the far-right in the EU elections demonstrate this.
In 1928 Germany, the Nazi party won 3% of the vote, by 1932 they won 37% – austerity, not inflation, at work (according to Mark Blyth of Brown University).

… Germany is interested in the economic benefits of Ukraine, which it has already militarily occupied twice, in 1918 and 1941. It wants to exploit the country as a cheap labor platform and use it to drive down wages in Eastern Europe and Germany even further. According to statistics compiled by the German Economic Institute, [...]
Had the wind been out of the north when the Fukushima nuclear power plant meltdowns occurred, Tokyo would be a ruined city.
“One of the Japanese firms included in the consortium [to build Turkey's new nuclear power plant] is Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, one of the companies behind the Fukushima plant damaged in the 2011 earthquake and tsunami.”
What else could go wrong?
“In a ten-year project completed in 2011 and costing $671 million, Edison [owner of San Onofre nuclear power plant in California] replaced the steam generators in both reactors with improved Mitsubishi steam generators.”
The San Onofre nuclear power plant is now closed due to defectively designed Mitsubishi steam generators.

Part of the cost of owning an All TERRAIN Vehicle is owning the terrain you intend to ride it on. In the 1980′s, the sagebrush rebels were all for privatizing federal lands. Then one day, someone pointed out that they could be excluded or charged for use of private lands by the private property owner. [...]
Every industrial fatality needs to be investigated as a homicide.
When the plant/mine management knows they will face 25 years in jail, they will ignore top-down imposed, unsafe head-office production policy and captured regulators, and they will make damn sure their operation is safe – or they will find work elsewhere.
Sad, but an industrial fatality in today’s world is an opportunity for an aspiring plant manager to demonstrate they can negotiate a bit of bad public relations and get production going again as soon as possible.
But for the Tea Party, Republicans would control the Senate.

Conservative economic policy was in place for the eight years leading up to the Great Depression and also the Great Recession – the two largest economic failures in the history of humanity.
Just when has conservative economic policy ever resulted in a success?
