Archive for July, 2008

In case you have been hibernating under a rock, or vacationing on the Galapagos lately, there has been an ongoing debate over the state of Senator Obama’s “Birth Certificate” and citizenship. No Quarter has been keeping tabs. What is wanted, of course, is transparency, just like for all those IL State Senate papers we have never seen. Check this out and read the supporting links in the blog:

Anyone else think the family’s upcoming Vacation to Hawaii might be related to the quest for enlightment?

To Him..

There is no loss in what you have done, only honor. 

The wave is coming, Let it lift you!

To Her..

There is no failure in this position; 

transformation is a hydra headed thing,

born out of unexpected places.

Bill Clinton is off to do what he would have done, had Hillary been president. Hillary is working hard for her constituents, and by her actions, for all of us. Check out Alegre’s Blog!

TOPIX

In March I wrote this on a Topix Blog site:

[No- no! We must have this fight with those who bring them, the racist, sexist, religion bashing, money questions, who did what in the 90’s, who did what in Chicago, who’s hiding what where? All these words, these attitudes that we hold onto, dregs of the last century, must go into the fire we are building. Two candidates are going into the fire. While I think the phoenix rising out the ashes will have a female head, whoever it is will not resemble the original. We must leave no stick, no leaf for the Republicans to burn.

This is the Democratic transformation that will occur. Do not be faint of heart!]

At the time I wrote this exhortation, I was still imagining that the Democratic Party understood that the years of right wing tripe to which we, the public have been subjected, regarding the Clintons, was an attack against the whole of the Democratic Party itself. Ultimately then, fighting the fire of the right wing by stepping into the blaze was the good fight. Little did I know that instead of stomping on the flames, or forging a stronger animal, the DNC would instead attempt to cure the problem by cutting off it’s own body and bleeding all over the kindling.

The Black Agenda Report has produced a wonderful synopsis of  events regarding the doling out of  digital TV channels to big media, thereby leaving out everyone else.  Is there any hope the next election season will be better?  What are we going to do about this? 

Big Media Steals 5,100 Digital TV Channels

Wednesday, 30 July 2008

by BAR executive editor Glen Ford

“Acting as agents of the broadcasting industry, Congress awarded the already filthy rich a digital TV bonanza valued at $80 billion.”

Update

I guess I’m popular, since I just got notice of a scrambled spam, generated by using this text, off my site. Thus the change in title. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Denver

O.K.- So city employees, have their own gas pumps. I get that, Chicago has a similar set up and when I was there, around 2000, let cabbies use it tax free. Course, that was about time the city raised the prices, so the cabbies got stuck.  Hmmm… wasn’t that about the time Obama was involved in his great learning experience about “Gas Tax Holidays”?

But wait, these aren’t City employees per see, they are the DNCC! Well, I guess the Mile High City had to have some enticements to the get the Convention there.

But wait, isn’t this the candidate who said gas tax holidays don’t work?  Way to match the message to the action people!! I know! This must be Hillary’s fault!! Check this out!

[DNCC vehicles have gotten to pull up to city pumps for the past few months, with a price as low as $2.62 per gallon, while a contract for the gasoline usage seems to have been an afterthought. Records reviewed by Rocky reporters show 61 DNCC vehicles (out of a fleet of 450, stressed the party) gassing up at city facilities, racking up a bill of $11,141.53 as of a week ago.]
