A look at Hell on earth for the uninitiated.

First thing this morning I am confronted with a suffocating story about despair.

Most people suffer passing bouts with depression.

But when we strive to understand depression, and especially its non-clinical causes, its causes rooted in the modern reality we all suffer, we are finally addressing the needs of the world, if by "needs" we are talking about a universal wish to make the world a better place.

Making the world a better place, is no easy task. But, it is clearly the only moral task.

Monetary Dikes Created to Dam Fiscal Floods

This morning as I read an article concerning GM junk bonds on Bloomberg, I followed my now dormant investor's instinct to a rotting pile of putrid economic mistakes and policy decisions, gasoline soaked rags, cans filled with gasoline and diesel fuel awaiting ignition by yet another pilfering group of greedy arsonists.

Cannibalism could be a viable solution

As I sat here this morning reading a gut-wrenching BBC story entitled Growing slums 'face water crisis' it dawned on me, canniblism may become necessary to adequately address the humanitarian needs that will certainly arise in this snow-balling economic downturn.

Even if it has never been a good idea to eat street vender meat products, no, we're still probably not going to see widespread cannibalism here in the U.S.

Re-Legitimizing America?

Many millions of Americans, and literally billions of human beings outside the United States, are right now hoping the election of Barack Obama, the first American of significant color to be elected to be President of the United States, will somehow re-legitimize the promise of the ethic of the America experience.

Black Americans of every shade are waking up this morning pinching themselves, wondering what it all will mean.

Many youthful Americans of every color too are stirring from their slumber, and saying to themselves, Yes! Yes! Yes!

Our Wheel of Fortune America.

Watching a Barack Obama television ad just now, an ad aired just before Wheel of Fortune, I was quite suddenly inspired by the half-black, Harvard graduate from Illinois.

No, I'm not inspired by any controversy incurred by the campaign of this polite, half-black, candidate. Barack Obama brought an incidental controversy to this election season, a reverse sort of race-baiting that seems to be enticing plenty of supporters to a candidacy that is otherwise ill-defined.

Anger about banking network security.

I'm interested in network security for online banking sites. It's a huge problem that seems to be being summarily ignored, and shirked for the responsibility it represents.

And there is a huge, gaping hole in the response for what could be done.

Here's the problem: we're all under attack 24/7. Anyone who has an online banking account is at risk.

Banks have done some things, and sometimes they change for improvement.

Paulson goes for broke

Paulson's upcoming purchase of Equity Shares in the last major banks standing in the financial OK Corral has convinced me once and for all that what we are looking at here is either idiocy on a monumental scale or the execution of an already established game plan.

*video*The inevitable collapse of the dollar

Summary: Americans are living beyond their means and Asia is currently financing that. But eventually the Asians/Europeans will stop financing the USA and then the bubble will burst.

Will no savings doom Americans?

According to my limited understanding of economics, banks are subject to the law of supply and demand. So, if they want to get more money into their reserves, an increase in interest rates is required so more people will bank their money in exchange for a higher rate of return. Banks can lend more (though at a higher rate) because they have more money in reserves to lend.

However, what I'm seeing is that the banks want to please all the people all the time. This flies in the face of conventional wisdom. There are some fundamental laws of economics being violated here.

Muslim Children Gassed at Dayton Mosque

According to fire dispatch communications, a child reported seeing two men with a white can spraying something into a window. That child was brought to the supervising firefighter at the scene.

The 300 or so inside were celebrating the last 10 days of Ramadan with dinner and a prayer session, but the prayer session was interrupted so those suffering from tearing, coughing and shortness of breath could receive treatment.

Treasury Pulled $700 billion price tag out of Thin Air

From GoergeWashingtonblogspot

Treasury Pulled the Number Out of Thin Air

You know the $700 billion price tag of the proposed bailout? Treasury pulled that number out of thin air.

As Forbes writes:

In fact, some of the most basic details, including the $700 billion figure Treasury would use to buy up bad debt, are fuzzy.

"It's not based on any particular data point," a Treasury spokeswoman told Forbes.com Tuesday. "We just wanted to choose a really large number."

(DOCUMENTARY)The World According to Monsanto

http://revolutionarypolitics.com/?p=163

If you have never seen this documentary I highly recommend you watch it. This is one of the scariest documentaries I've ever seen and the sources are irrefutable. It's very well made and I like how they show how the average person no matter how technical savvy can find this information. You can even follow along using google to verify the data. This documentary makes you wonder what is Monsanto's agenda?

Palin's Deadly Wolf Program

http://www.salon.com/env/feature/2008/09/08/sarah_palin_wolves/index.html

I feel strongly that a person's character can be judged by the way he or she treats animals. Sarah Palin is on record for actively promoting the aerial gunning of Alaska's wild wolves and bears. The wolves and bears are chased by plane to exhaustion and then blasted to death by cowards with shotguns. When Palin learned that not enough wolves were killed this way she tried to offer a bounty for every severed foreleg brought in.

http://revolutionarypolitics.com/?p=129

During an Anti-War March from The Capitol Building to the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul Mn. where the Republican national convention is being held, protesters and police have a confrontation. At one point, a police officer picks up his bicycle and uses it to clear the protesters. Pepper spray was also used during the altercation.

Old Tom Jefferson Rolling in his grave

... singin', "Who are the Nazis Now?"

the song is by one of my favorite bands, Clan Dyken. Most of their music is rockin, this is a campy folk/polka sing-a-long, but I still love it.

Brits Want to Yank Fat Children From Their Homes

If children are fat, this may be defined as "neglect" (abuse) on the part of parents. Local governments in Britain are looking to make a power grab and decide the fate of families.

Twilight of the Psychopaths

Civilization, as we know it, is largely the creation of psychopaths. All civilizations, our own included, have been based on slavery and “warfare.” Incidentally, the latter term is a euphemism for mass murder.

At JFK Airport, Denying Basic Rights Is Just Another Day at the Office

I was recently stopped by Homeland Security as I was returning from a trip to Syria. What I saw in the hours that followed shocked and disturbed me.
