1. The House voted 406 to 19 to repeal health-insurance anti-trust exemption. Trust-busting Teddy Roosevelt's spirit smiles. Glenn Beck frowns. #

  2. Obama backed off the public option for health care. Now he's backing off consumer financial-protection. #

  3. Obama's "tough talk" against banksters a few weeks ago was just for show. He trotted out Volker but is only taking Volker's worst advice. #

  4. Volker wants curbs on banks doing proprietary trading. Proprietary trading is a conflict of interest. Obama is ignoring Volker on it. #

  5. In a speech to the "conservative" Business Roundtable (monopolistic), didn't Obama ignore FDR's public works that put millions to work? #

  6. To Hell with systemic unemployment for the sake of the superrich who want poor people competing for the lowest pay possible. #

  7. "This country [Israel] exists as the fulfillment of a promise made by God Himself.... [cont.] #

  8. [cont.] ...It would be ridiculous to ask it to account for its legitimacy." — Golda Meir (Le Monde, October 15, 1971) #

  9. And seek the peace of the city whither I have caused you to be carried away captives, and pray unto the LORD for it: ... [cont.] #

  10. [cont.] ...for in the peace thereof shall ye have peace. (Jeremiah 29:7) #

  11. Golda Meir versus Jeremiah 29:7: To get a flavor of what's going on there, read: #

  12. Obama says to Big Business he believes in a free market. Where's the free market of ideas? He excludes single-payer from that "free market." #

  13. Who's worse for human and civil rights, Honduran so-called president Porfirio Lobo or Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez? #

  14. I raise the issue because the US corporate mainstream media harps anti-Chavez themes but ignores the U.S.-backed dictatorship in Honduras. #

  15. People are complaining that Citi shut down homosexual social-networking bank accounts. Are there no lines that organizations may draw? #

  16. What was the offending company site (Fabulis) doing that Citibank found "objectionable?" Were they putting up pornographic materials? #

  17. If Citi can't shut down homosexual social-networking bank accounts, can they shut down pederasty social-networking bank accounts? #

  18. Can Citibank shut down pedophile social-networking bank accounts, or would there be a huge outcry and reversal? #

  19. If Citi can't shut down homosexual social-networking bank accounts, why can Citi shut down the bank accounts of others on "social" grounds? #

  20. The argument of the legality of homosexuality arises, but how much power does the state have when the state won't regulate toxic securities? #

  21. The state can force Citi to accept the "objectionable," but it won't rein in hedge funds, claw back bonuses, & end proprietary trading? #

  22. Canada's problem: Greed/Oil Sands: & #

  23. It's no mere coincidence that Venezuela has huge, heavy, oil-sands reserves imperialists want to control. .... [cont.] #

  24. [cont.] ... Canada has huge oil sands reserves. #

  25. Tom - Hart Viges wrote on his Wall about 5 hours ago: "Non-Military Options for Youth just got kicked out of Bowie... . #

  26. Youth awakening: Obama the war-mongering phony. #

  27. Gov. Corzine Wrong About Goldman's Unpopularity #

  28. Mike Lux, "The Philosophy of Me...." Read: "...BECK'S CPAC 2010 KEYNOTE ADDRESS: BECK RIPS...." #

  29. Re: fabulis, I rec'd a link: It didn't address my questions about pederasty or pedophilia, etc. I did reply. [cont.] #

  30. @roncallari Re: fabulis, One assumed these possibilities, but what was originally deemed objectionable and what of porn, etc.? Cuts 2 ways in reply to roncallari #

  31. @Sean_Kinney Thanks. I wasn't sure how it would be received. I have a real knack for upsetting people because I don't fit on either side. in reply to Sean_Kinney #
