Watching, As It Happens...
by The Old Hippie Because As Jerry Said, “What A Long Strange Trip It’s Been...”
As It Continues To Get Even Stranger.

Lt. Gen. Taguba, Abu Ghraib investigator, “There is no longer any
doubt as to whether the current administration has committed war
crimes. The only question that remains to be answered is whether
those who ordered the use of torture will be held to account.”
- “The Torture Presidency”
President George W. Bush has launched “Operation Legacy,”. . .
- Reality Article of the Day: “Too Late?”
Why scientists say we should expect the worst.
Almost all of us are aware of market failures, whether or not we have ever studied economics. But “scholars” who work for The Heritage Foundation, The American Enterprise Institute, The Cato Institute, etc. somehow manage to completely forget about “market failures.”
“As long as the greatest crime of the 21st century remains unprosecuted,
we all... can only blame ourselves, and deserve our collective fates.”

A“Below The Fold” reprised bonus - And a 4th update to something I wrote a while back...
The very few are winning - They are not stupid, nor are they incompetent.
The very few only care for the power of, the ‘control-of-the-control’ of... wealth.
The very few are educated, intelligent, efficient, and successful.
The very few have intelligently, efficiently, successfully transferred the wealth to themselves.
America is not the very few. We, (the other 99.x%,) are America.
The wealth they stole, was our wealth. It is now their wealth. Their power.
We gave up securities, liberties, freedoms, so the very few could complete the theft.
We still are. . . Without protest, without revolt. . . With our children.
[ Update ] And now they blatantly come demanding $700 billion, (to over $1 trillion,) more -
To pay for their ‘investment’ crimes - Do you think anyone will stop them?
[ 2nd Update ] “Our” congresspeople changed some of wording of the bailout, admittedly for the better in some cases, but the final reality is that the thieves got the money, and its implicit power.
Again - You allowed - Without censure, without punishment. Again no one stopped the very few.
The very few got away with another chunk of ‘our’ wealth, and its power over us.
[ 3rd Update ] Then they celebrated the extra theft, -twice- -openly- ...using the bailout money.
...and got away with it. TWICE. ...and, as usual, you “allowed” it.
[ 4th Update ] “I Told You So.” I said you’d do nothing. You did nothing. They won. We lost.
Go Ahead... “Just Keep “Allowing” - Keep Denying The Realities - It’s Not
Like It’s Actually Getting Worse - Much Worse - Blatantly And Faster.”
[Proof] “Don't Look Now, There's a Huge Wave of Inflation Coming Toward Us”
