And people ask

NOBODY'S READY – But the clock is still ticking

The harder they fall

Quote du jour

Undercover work isn't always popular in Aspen, but "to quote a movie, 'our job is to protect democracy, not to practice it,'" [DEA Agent Jeffrey] Sweetin said.

Co-Prosperity Sphere?

Would you expect something different?

It certainly is a wonder that education doesn't seem to improve when there is the constant need for yet more invective and the consequent need for a broader vocabulary to adequately express it.

Spirits Rejoice

Albert Ayler

For about a week.

I just did a Command-F and could not find...

And here I was thinking all the time that Harlem/ 125th Street was a black neighborhood. Silly me. Maybe when I went to the Apollo early this past spring and then out to eat with friends, everyone I saw was an 'extra'?

Hi, I'm.... Fly Me.

Compare your own experience in the friendly skies to Netjets and compare that to this and then conjure up images of what you may have heard.

Interesting commentary

from honest photographers
It's quite long and much data is loading in the background but stick it out.

Don't whine for me, oh, blasphemer


Until it happens, though, it's probably best if the corporate dreamweavers and the Rovian propaganda technicians keep their bosses in the power. I still believe (call it an article of faith) that a majority of the voters will eventually figure out they've been had -- sold not just a bill of goods but a counterfeit reality, one that is crumbling in front of their eyes. When that happens, they're going to be enraged, in a way that makes this year's discontent look like the passing tantrum of a grumpy two-year old. We can only pray they'll be angry at the right people.

What a way to start the day.

US Debt far worse than admitted

With no fanfare or media coverage, the US government released its latest financial statement. In the report it is revealed that Bush is lying through his teeth about US debt and deficits and that the USA is in deep, deep trouble.

Bush says the 2005 deficit was $318 billion, the report says it was $760 billion.

Bush says the per-capita share of debt was $28 thousand but the report says it is actually $156 thousand per person.

Bush says the total debt was $8.3 billion, the report says it is $49 trillion.

The White House does not want you to read this book. Although federal law compels U.S.Treasury officials to publish the information in this Financial Report,they hope you will not see it.That's why they issued this shocking news just before a major holiday without a press conference or even a press release. They succeeded.There was no media coverage.
