While the mainstream media focuses on today's accused sexual harasser, are women overall losing the war? Are they being distracted and misdirected at low-hanging-fruit? A very insightful editorial published in the New York Times raises the question...

If you buy or sell non-new goods and live in the state of Louisiana, you can no longer use legal tender to complete such transactions. Ackel & Associates LLC, a professional law firm, explains that House Bill 195 of the 2011 Regular Session (Act 389), which was recently passed by the state legislature and signed into law by Republican governor Bobby Jindal, prohibits anyone who "buys, sells, trades or otherwise acquires or disposes of junk or used or secondhand property [from entering] into any cash transactions in payment for the purchase of [such items]." Doing so could land you up to five years of hard time in jail.

Michael Moore Posts Julian Assange's Bail

President George W. Bush (as shown in this actual photo) was presented a "secret" document on August 6th, 2001. Its heading read: "Bin Ladin Determined To Strike in US." And on those pages it said the FBI had discovered "patterns of suspicious activity in this country consistent with preparations for hijackings." Mr. Bush decided to ignore it and went fishing for the next four weeks.

Moore asks America, how different things might have been if Wikileaks had been around and made that information public, instead of it being ignored?

In the wake of death threats from the US Government against the founder of Wikileaks - a journalistic web site that posts "whistleblower" information on important social, economic and political issues, a file has mysteriously appeared that is ten times larger than anything else, merely labeled "insurance."

Mrs. Thomas Goes To Washington

Virginia Thomas, a self-described "ordinary citizen from Omaha, Nebraska, is an unabashed conservative (to paraphrase Seinfeld- not that there's anything wrong with that). She "intrigued" by Glenn Beck, is a big fan of Rush Limbaugh, and wants America to get back to "core conservative principles". Toward that end she has started a 501(c) nonprofit that can raise unlimited cash from corporations and spend it advocating for any politician or position in any race across the country. That nonprofit's activities would've been banned by federal law if not for the help of one very special man.

KBR: Whitewashing Gang Rape Creates A Better Workplace

Posted by MarkPile (6445 views) Add this story to MyYahoo Add this article to del.icio.us Submit article to Reddit Add story to Furl Add story to StumbleUpon [E-Mail link]


Senator Al Franken asks the attorney for KBR/Halliburton a few questions regarding the current bill he authored before congress that 30 Republicans voted against. It seems pretty simple: Franken believes the government should not do business with companies that force their employees to take serious criminal matters to private arbitration in lieu of actual justice. In this case, a woman who was brutally gang raped and locked inside a storage container fights for her right to face her accusers in court. Watch as KBR's attorney tries to defend their bizzare stance on the issue.

Green Day has the most popular CD in the country, but you won't be able to find it at your local Wal-Mart.

The band says the giant superstore chain refused to stock its latest CD, "21st Century Breakdown," because Wal-Mart wanted the album edited for language and content, and they refused.

Keith Olbermann: Obama Is Wrong And Selling America Out

Posted by Pile (6144 views) Add this story to MyYahoo Add this article to del.icio.us Submit article to Reddit Add story to Furl Add story to StumbleUpon [E-Mail link]

[Beating Dead Horses]
In the wake of the release of the memos from the Bush administration showing their fraudulent mandate for torture and disregard for domestic and International law, President Obama has claimed it's time to put that behind us. "No. You're wrong.", says Keith Olbermann, and he's not alone.

Perhaps one of his most compelling and powerful arguments, Keith shows how the nation has never "moved forward" without "fixing the mistakes of the past" first and foremost, and until that is done, the past is destined to repeat itself with even more heinous results. Best Godwin argument I've ever seen...

[BSAlert *exclusive*]
Ever since Obama was elected to the White House, conservatives and gun enthusiasts have been screaming about how likely Barak Obama is to take away peoples firearms. People talk of the "Clinton ban" which restricted assault weapons in 1994 and claim another Democrat in the White House is bad news for gun owners.

But is this truthful? Are Democrats more for gun control than Republicans? We examine historical and recent legislation to reveal that a lot of what people are saying is total BS...
