President Obama traveled to a House Republican retreat in Baltimore on Friday and delivered a performance that was at once defiant, substantive and engaging. For roughly an hour and a half, Obama lectured GOP leaders and, in a protracted, nationally-televised question-and-answer session, deflected their policy critiques, corrected their misstatements and scolded them for playing petty politics. Check out the video.

Racism As A Tool Of The American Military

Posted by Pile (5424 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]


Mike Prysner describes a mission he took part in which his unit forced Iraqis out of half a dozen homes, with no compensation, so the US military could use them. "One family in particular, a woman with two small girls, very elderly man, and two middle-aged men--we dragged them from their houses and threw them onto the street, and arrested the men because they refused to leave." Since he left, he has been plagued by guilt, "anytime I see a mother with her children, like the one who cried hysterically and screamed that we were worse than Saddam as we forced her from her home--anytime I see a young girl like the one I grabbed by the arm and dragged into the street." Prysner also describes the physical abuse of a wounded prisoner, with a sandbag over his head and his hands tied behind his back. "We were told we were fighting terrorists; the real terrorist was me, and the real terrorism is this occupation."

KBR: Whitewashing Gang Rape Creates A Better Workplace

Posted by MarkPile (6269 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.

Yesterday, five Democratic United States Senators Max Baucus (D-Mont), Kent Conrad (D-ND), Blanche Lincoln (D-Ark), Bill Nelson (D-Fla) and Tom Carper (D-Del) voted against the a proposal to put a government administered public option in the health reform bill that will come out of the Senate Finance Committee.

One Man Stands Up To The Wingnut Protesters

[Activists]
When you think the left has no balls, take a look at this video of a single brave man who had the guts to show up at one of Glenn Beck's coalition of crazy people holding a sign that says, "Public Option Now!"

After being attacked and spit upon, he eventually completes his march through the protest with the help of several armed policemen. It's pretty amazing to watch the amount of hatred and vitriol spewed at this guy who is merely expressing an opinion.

Investigation Reveals GOP Climate-Change "Scientists" Are Quacks

Posted by Pile (5713 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]

[Environment]
The Center for Inquiry recently did an investigation into the credentials and references of a U.S. Senate Minority Report criticizing legislation to help address global climate change. The GOP-led report cited close to 700 people as being references for their position. After review, more than 80% of these so-called "scientists" had no peer reviewed work published.

As usual, it seems to be an amazing coincidence that the vast majority of "experts" in the field that claim global climate change is not a man-made event, nor threatening, just so happen to be tied to various lobbying organizations.
