Bill Quigley on the Obama Civil Liberties “F” Report Card

Bill Quigley has taken a hard and well-researched look at Obama’s continuation and escalation of what Quigley terms the “draconian domestic civil liberties intrusions pioneered under the Bush administration” (involving freedoms of speech, of assembly of association, to privacy, to a fair trial, of religion, etc.).

Quigley's article is a strong rejoinder to so much of the myopic, Obamacrat hype about Obama being the lesser of two evils. He only appears to be the lesser of two evils in the hypocritical talk Obama talks and guaranteed will be talking much more of in his ever-intensifying “Lucy and the football” campaign mode.

Congratulations Obama, you have won: Most of the unemployed no longer receive benefits

Most of the unemployed no longer receive benefits (AP)

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The jobs crisis has left so many people out of work for so long that most of America's unemployed are no longer receiving unemployment benefits.

Early last year, 75 percent were receiving checks. The figure is now 48 percent - a shift that points to a growing crisis of long-term unemployment. Nearly one-third of America's 14 million unemployed have had no job for a year or more.

Re Gaddafi Death: Naughty Boys (& 1 Girl) Hanging Stray Cat In A Basement

Russia’s NATO envoy, Dmitry Rogozin, spoke the original reference I just paraphrased (and then some) above:

"The faces of the leaders of 'world democracies' are so happy, as if they remembered how they hanged stray cats in basements in their childhoods."

I am with the bitter Dmitry and his calling out the profound sadism on this one, NATO’s and US leaders' jubilation (and probably direct enabling) of the brutal killing of Gaddafi.

I thought we all learned in kindergarten or before that “two wrongs don’t make a right”? Apparently, the golden rule is dead and long live “might makes right”!!! Read more about Re Gaddafi Death: Naughty Boys (& 1 Girl) Hanging Stray Cat In A Basement

Obama orders U.S. troops to help chase down African 'army' leader

Washington (CNN) -- President Barack Obama is sending about 100 U.S. troops to Africa to help hunt down the leaders of the notoriously violent Lord's Resistance Army.

Clearly the LRA has gotten on the wrong side of the coltan wars. Read more about Yet another war

The Libyan War ... Kinda Like 'The Truman Show' ... Only Bloodier & More Sordid

Jim Lehrer approves of the War in Libya apparently. I no longer approve of Jim Lehrer. He is one of the many co-producers of “Libya’s kinda Truman Show” a movie within the ever flashing movie of "America’s Willing Suspension of Disbelief." Obama, of course, sits in the director’s chair (or corporate puppet’s chair ... what have you).

I’m thinking maybe US corporate media is not the appropriate place to get reality-based info about the true nature of The Libyan War. Read more about The Libyan War ... Kinda Like 'The Truman Show' ... Only Bloodier & More Sordid

Isn't tritium good for you?

At present our government is conducting a giant experiment in Vermont and Illinois, which I'm betting will eventually demonstrate, "not".

From The Daily Mail:

"Despite the revelations the NRC and industry bosses consider the leaks a public relations problem, not a public health threat. "

Of course.

American Medical Errors Killing 100,000 Annually

From the LA Times:
Going into hospital far riskier than flying

Chance of dying from a medical error in any hospital, anywhere in the world: 1 in 300.

Chance of dying in an airplane crash: 1 in 10 million.

You'll be shocked (shocked!) to learn that the situation is much worse (i.e., greater chance of dying) in the U.S. than Europe. Read more about American Medical Errors Killing 100,000 Annually
