Sadly good to hear. It's pathetic in the the UK. Despite great researchers in the U.S (and some others) who actually want to understand and heal (surely what Medicine is for) against those who seek to denigrate better researchers and intellects. "1984" State here where a "Psycho" appears to control the Media. May be they would like a taste of all this. Best to you V99 and better.

the above woman's take on things comes off much more educated, informed and spot on to me than Beck, I have stomached him a few times and laughed. outlandish!
HOwever, I do not defend obama nor the democrats, there is blame to go around, but I certainly wouldnt side with the rt wing or fox folks if I had to pick betwixt repubs and dems. I was very disappointed in this admins handling of the bp crisis, of course the prior admin set up the circumstances that allowed it but obama admin didnt do anything to change it and just faciliated the bad circumstances. I can find the article about if interested later.

I am super ticked about the redistribution of wealth that has been happening the last 30 years, particularly intense the last 10, I do not like socialism for the rich, trust me! the bank and ins. bail out is scandalous and I love michael lewis' writing about the mortgage industry scam fascinating and enraging:

really though, more than the above folks, amy goodman is a real person for the people amongst reporters

John Dean, a republican, wrote an excellent book about the unfortunate change in the party: "conservatives without conscience". I would have to say that barry goldwater might have been more credible than bill clinton and more progressive even perhaps, although I certainly havent done a dissertation by any means on all of it! Ike was pretty cool when he warned about the "military industrial complex" I think cfs folks are a casualty in ways of all of that.
The links did not work, except of course the Wikipedia.

I personally think Glen Beck's a tool.

But the cheapest "documentary" tactic there is involves editing together the dumbest responses from any movement you wish to mock. That's Michael Moore type sh&t. .

I don't think gleefully posting "stupid Americans!" is particularly appropriate.

There are stupid people everywhere in the world. Hand me a camera and some airline tickets and I'll be happy to prove it.

My sarcasm did not show through, I was joking! I am an American, and of course was just kidding. FYI

I agree with your points and was what I was getting at!

Those people were pretty ridiculous though. The one woman dressed like Uncle Sam was out of her mind.

I heard on the news briefly that ahmadinajad had some kind of fatigue. I forget the context, but the wya I recall it was the news media saying he was too tired to do something rather. Maybe he was too tired to threaten and shoot his nukes at the US.

That also happened last year as I recall. He had some sort of incident with exhaustion after traveling. It must be pretty bad for them to admit to that- the same country that doesn't have any gays.

I'll send him a copy of Dr. T's book. (From fatigued to nuclear armed)
