Charlie Rose, NPR propagandists for corporate Oligarchy

Charlie Rose gave hour long interview to chairs from presidents deficit commission.

The two chairs names are Erskine Bowles and Alan Simpson.

I don't see PBS giving time to economist Dean Baker who can punch holes in these mens arguments all day long.

The arguments are false because their is no in depth discussion about military spending or the trillion dollar bail outs to the bankers..

The only ones to sacrifice in this game are the bulk of the American people

The three greatest cab movies are :


1976 –Starring Robert De Niro and directed by Martin Scorcese.

The premier taxi movie, with the high art of Martin Scorcese and Robert De Niro

I really love the scene where De Niro talks to the mirror as says “are you talking to me” while he readies himself for battle with Mafia pimps.



2004- Film by directed by Michael Mann,starring Tom Cruise, Jamie Foxx and Jada Pinkett

Jamie Foxx is a cab driver forced to drive hitman Tom Cruise around the city while Tom Cruise kills people.

Has similar to feel to movie Man Hunter (Directed by Michael Mann) , and another movie To Live and Die in LA (Directed by William Friedkin)



1991- Directed by Jim Jarmusch.

The movie revolves around 5 cab rides that take place on night on earth in the five different cities of Los Angeles, New York, Paris, Rome, and Helsinki

This movie stars
Winona Ryder, Roberto Benigni, Giancarlo Esposito

Another Jarmusch movie which I really liked but not about cab rides was Stranger than Paradise(1984)

Say no to President's Deficit Commission say no to Wall Street rip off of America

Deficit commission loaded with Wall Street and Corporate insiders .
Interest groups already responsible for majority of the financial crisis we are in today
Now they want to fix the crisis on the backs of the American people by attacking Social Security and Medicare.
Contact your Congress person or Senator and tell them don't touch Social Security or Medicare.
If they want to save money break up the too big to fail banks..and stop the free give away of tax payer money to Wall Street.

The immediate threat..

The Chinese threat is different than Soviet threat in that Soviet threat was external and there was money to be made by internal wealthy(US) using hyped Soviet threat as way to make more money.

Chinese conundrum is one were the internal wealthy (US) are enticed , tempted , corrupted by perceived wealth and power of dealing with Chinese elite who are pimping out their massive and under payed work force to US elite along with , potentially allowing US elite access to Chinese market.
Chinese elite are aware of the weakness to this temptation by their US counterparts and holding out those carrots to gain real economic strength in the form of access to US markets, factories, and technology transfers that translate into real economic value, power, and eventually military power.
The US is like the crack addict who thinks he can play with the drug on the weekend and not get addicted and the Chinese are like the crack dealer who offers a few free hits of the crack to the get the user addicted and then control of the users life.
US needs to be in a 12 step program for giving up it's national sovereignty.
There are definitely traitorous powerful economic interests lobbying for policies that will lead to a further weakening of the US these interests do this for their own selfish gains of wealth and power.
Coming soon a piece about Australia moving towards China’s orbit..

US version of globalization will die with death of dollar.

US version of globalization will die with the death of the dollar as , we slowly head to currency chaos and new trading blocs forming.

Kelly Pavlik my one of my favorite fighters has pulled out of his November 13 2010, comeback fight to be fought on the undercard of the Manny Pacquiao vs Antonio Margarito under card that will be held at Cowboy Stadium in Arlington Texas.

My three canaries in a coal mine

1- UK drops pound and starts using Euro
Would mean UK has left the US orbit and US has lost key ally.

2-Oil priced in something other than dollars.

3-Taiwan integrates much closer to China.

U.S. Dollar in extreme danger..

Today the United States Federal Reserve Bank put forth it’s QE2 plan. Called quantitative easing or printing money if you like.
We are probably witnessing death of US dollar as the worlds reserve currency as the U.S. goes to printing money to save it’s economy instead of smart trade and financial policies.
The only thing that could change this is war with China or collapse of China other than that the US dollar is on the way out as the worlds reserve currency.
I actually hope I am wrong on this count.
Below is part of a main stream media article about this.
The Fed announced a plan to buy $600 billion in government debt, aimed at driving already low long-term interest rates even lower. The central bank would buy the debt in chunks of $75 billion a month through June of next year.

Economists call it "quantitative easing." The latest package gets the name "QE2" -- like the ship -- because it's the second round. The Fed spent about $1.7 trillion from 2008 to earlier this year to take bonds off the hands of banks and stabilize them.

Here's how it's supposed to work this time: The Fed buys Treasury bonds from banks, providing them cash to lend to customers. Buying so many bonds also lowers interest rates because demand for Treasurys leads to higher prices and lower yields. Interest rates on consumer loans are tied to Treasury yields. Lower rates entice people to take out a mortgage or another loan.

At the same time, lower interest rates make relatively safe investments like bonds and cash less appealing, so companies and investors take the cash and buy equipment or other investments, like stocks. The S&P 500 takes off and Americans celebrate with a shopping spree. Businesses see a rise in sales and begin hiring again, and a virtuous cycle of more spending and more hiring ensues.
