Well, about time! Sister Dusty and RW give me a real going over at Wingfield’s place. I know you don’t allow personal attacks. But I forgive them, they wasn’t raised any better.

The scenes have outraged Pakistanis, some who are questioning how their society could passively watch the shocking killings (of innocent young boys) without intervening.

The News, an English-language daily newspaper, wrote: ‘Is this what we are? Savages? So utterly bereft of a speck of humanity that a crowd of ordinary men are passive spectators to public murder?’

Uh, you reckon?

This year brings a rich harvest of vulnerable Democratic incumbents with targets on their backs — people who voted for the notorious Big Three: stimulus, cap and trade, and health care.

“Those are tombstone type of votes,” said Roe, the GOP consultant. “Win, lose or draw, that’ll be on their headstones.”

In a recent Rasmussen poll, most voters said they viewed the Democratic agenda as “extreme,” while a plurality saw the Republicans as mainstream.

Good sunday morning to y’all… Read this, it’s very good…From The Nation magazine…

Alexander C*ckburn
No, the Empire Doesn’t Always Win

“The US isn’t withdrawing from Iraq at
all—it’s rebranding the occupation.… What
is abundantly clear is that the US has no
intention of letting go of Iraq any time soon.” So declared Seumas
Milne of the Guardian on August 4.
Milne is not alone among writers on the left arguing that even
though most Americans think it’s all over, Uncle Sam still rules
the roost in Iraq. They point to 50,000 US troops in ninety-four
military bases, “advising” and training the Iraqi army, “providing
security” and carrying out “counterterrorism” missions.
Outside US government forces there is what Jeremy Scahill calls
the “coming surge” of contractors in Iraq, swelling up from the
present 100,000. “The advantage of an outsourced occupation,”
Milne writes, “is clearly that someone other than US soldiers can
do the dying to maintain control of Iraq.”
“Can Iraq now be regarded as a tolerably secure
outpost of the American system in the Middle East?”
Tariq Ali asked in New Left Review earlier this year.
He answered himself judiciously: “[Iraqis] have reason
to exult, and reason to doubt.” But the thrust of
his analysis depicts Iraq as still the pawn of the US
empire, with a “predominantly Shia army—some
250,000 strong…trained and armed to the teeth to
deal with any resurgence of the resistance.”
The bottom line, as drawn by Milne and Ali, is oil.
Milne gestures to the “dozen 20-year contracts to run Iraq’s biggest
oil fields that were handed out last year to foreign companies.”
Is it really true that, though the US troop presence has dropped
by almost 100,000 in eighteen months, Iraq is as much under
Uncle Sam’s imperial jackboot as it was in, say, 2004, even though
US troops no longer patrol the streets? If Iraq’s political affairs
are under US control, how come the US Embassy—deployed in
its Vatican City–size compound, mostly as vacant as a foreclosed
subdivision in Riverside, California—cannot knock Iraqi heads
together and bid them form a government? Those 50,000 troops
broiling in their costly bases are scarcely a decisive factor in Iraq’s
internal affairs. Neither are the private contractors, whose military
role should not be oversold, unless the Shiites are supposed to
quail before ill-paid Peruvians, Ugandan cops and the like.
Is a Shiite-dominated government really to America’s taste
and nothing more than its pawn? It was Sistani, denounced by
Ali as America’s creature, who called Bush on his pledge of free
elections in 2005, thus downsizing the excessive representation
of the Sunnis, who chose to boycott the elections anyway. And
if all this was a devious ploy to break “the Iraqi resistance,” by
which Ali means the Sunnis, why does the United States constantly
invoke the menace of Shiite Iran and decry its influence
in Iraq?
If the Sunni “resistance,” honored without qualification by Ali,
ever had a strategy beyond a sectarian agenda, it wasn’t advanced by
blowing up Shiite pilgrims and setting off bombs in marketplaces.Muqtada
al-Sadr, lamented by Ali as sidelined by the United States
and Sistani, has been described as the “kingmaker” since his
success in the parliamentary election this past March.
If this really was a “war for oil,” it scarcely went well for the
United States. Run your eye down the list of contracts the Iraqi
government awarded in June and December 2009. Prominent is
Russia’s Lukoil, which, in partnership with Norway’s Statoil, won
the rights to West Qurna Phase Two, a 12.9 billion–barrel supergiant
oilfield. Other successful bidders for fixed-term contracts
included Russia’s Gazprom and Malaysia’s Petronas. Only two
US-based oil companies came away with contracts: ExxonMobil
partnered with Royal Dutch Shell on a contract for West Qurna
Phase One (8.7 billion barrels in reserves); and Occidental shares
a contract in the Zubair field (4 billion barrels), in company with
Italy’s ENI and South Korea’s Kogas. The huge Rumaila field
(17 billion barrels) yielded a contract for BP and the
China National Petroleum Company, and Royal
Dutch Shell split the 12.6 billion–barrel Majnoon
field with Petronas, 60-40.
Throughout the two auctions there were frequent
bleats from the oil companies at the harsh terms
imposed by the auctioneers representing Iraq, as
this vignette from Reuters about the bidding on the
northern Najmah field suggests: “Sonangol also won
the nearby 900-million-barrel Najmah oilfield in
Nineveh.… Again, the Angolan firm had to cut its price and accept
a fee of $6 per barrel, less than the $8.50 it had sought. ‘We
are expecting a little bit higher. Can you go a little bit higher?’
Sonangol’s exploration manager Paulino Jeronimo asked Iraqi Oil
Minister Hussain al-Shahristani to spontaneous applause from
other oil executives. Shahristani said, ‘No.’”
So either the all-powerful US government was unable to fix the
auctions to its liking or the all-powerful US-based oil companies
mostly decided the profit margins weren’t sufficiently tempting.
Either way, the “war for oil” isn’t in very good shape.
Ali and Milne are being credulous in taking at face value declarations
by US officials that the United States is not wholly withdrawing
and will stay in business in Iraq for the foreseeable future.
Those officials don’t want to see their influence go to zilch, so they
have to maintain that their power in Iraq is only a little affected by
the steady reduction of troops.
The left—or a substantial slice of it—snatches defeat from
the jaws of a decisive victory over US plans for Iraq by proclaiming
that America has established what Milne calls “a new
form of outsourced semi-colonial regime to maintain its grip
on the country and region.” Yes, Iraq is in ruins—always the
default consequence of American imperial endeavors. The left
should hammer home the message that the US onslaught on
Iraq, in terms of its proclaimed objectives, was a strategic and
military disaster. That’s the lesson to bring home.

SHARE THIS: Share361 0diggsdiggSign-Up Can you teach an old dog new tricks? In politics, the answer is usually no. Most elected officials cling to their ideological biases, despite the real-world facts that disprove their theories time and again. Most have no common sense, and most never acknowledge that they were wrong.

But one huge exception to this rule is Democrat Barney Frank, chairman of the House Financial Services Committee.

For years, Frank was a staunch supporter of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the giant government housing agencies that played such an enormous role in the financial meltdown that thrust the economy into the Great Recession. But in a recent CNBC interview, Frank told me that he was ready to say goodbye to Fannie and Freddie.

“I hope by next year we’ll have abolished Fannie and Freddie,” he said. Remarkable. And he went on to say that “it was a great mistake to push lower-income people into housing they couldn’t afford and couldn’t really handle once they had it.” He then added, “I had been too sanguine about Fannie and Freddie.”

TEHRAN, Iran — Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Sunday inaugurated the country’s first domestically built unmanned bomber aircraft, calling it an “ambassador of death” to Iran’s enemies.

The 4-meter-long drone aircraft can carry up to four cruise missiles and will have a range of 620 miles, according to a state TV report — not far enough to reach archenemy Israel.

“The jet, as well as being an ambassador of death for the enemies of humanity, has a main message of peace and friendship,” said Ahmadinejad at the inauguration ceremony, which fell on the country’s national day for its defense industries.-Urinal

Andy likes to post and run… still waiting for him to answer from DAYS ago just why he said that a “liberal activist judge” gave the ruling in Utah that crosses on a federal hwy had to come down… all it took was 2 seconds to find that it was in fact a CONSERVATIVE “activist” judge on the 10th district court of appeals who wrote the order… one put in place by King Reagan. Of course I shared that with Andy and he’s STILL not responded as to WHY he called the judge a “liberal activist” judge…and he’s not weighed in on whether he still considers a judge that Reagan nominated an “activist”… kinda like all those who were saying Judge Clay Land was a liberal activist judge as well when ruling against Queen of the birthers Orly…until it was pointed out that he was appointed by Dubya…

ATLANTA — A former college professor is due in court this week to face charges he stole money from several of his students. Four Clayton State University students said Stephen Williams took their money for investments and promised big returns – but they’ve never seen any money.

Williams faces charges of theft and fraud.

One of Williams’ former students said he lost $10,000. “He took me for everything I had at the time right before I got married,” said former CSU student Aaron Turnage….

Ah yes, colleges these days only turn out the best and the brightest … this one is likely there on a student loan, majoring in finance, and will NEVER be able to pay back what he’ll owe.

According to the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center, making all of the Bush tax cuts permanent, as opposed to following the Obama proposal, would cost the federal government $680 billion in revenue over the next 10 years. For the sake of comparison, it took months of hard negotiations to get Congressional approval for a mere $26 billion in desperately needed aid to state and local governments.

DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. — Michelle Fonville said her experience at Natural Nails on Covington Highway in DeKalb County turned from pleasant to painful in a matter of moments…

She said things went downhill on Monday after the salon manager gave her the bill for her manicure, pedicure and eyebrow arch. Fonville realized that she had been overcharged by $5. “I said, ‘I’ve been overcharged. She may have made an error,’” said Fonville. “She broke it down, then told me she charged me $5 more because I was overweight.”

“I said, Ma’am, you can’t charge me $5 more. That’s discrimination because of my weight,” said Fonville. Salon manager Kim Tran told ( a tv reporter) that the surcharge was due to costly repairs of broken chairs by overweight customers. She said the chairs have a weight capacity of 200 pounds and cost $2,500 to fix….
