Mixed-Message: Obama says Afghan pullout in 2011, Clinton and Gates say no way

Submitted by Eternity on Sun, 12/06/2009 - 21:05.

Max Eternity - Using language like "finish the job" and claiming that he intends to pull out of Afghanistan in 2011, Obama adds 30,000 new troops.  In his escalation explanation of the Afghan war and occupation, Obama has attempted to offer a silver lining of hope by  essentially promising definitive pull-out dates--ending the conflict.  Yet simultaneously his State and Defense Departments are contradicting his "Exit Strategy" rhetoric, back-walking much of what The Washington Post, The Huffington Post and others have reported th

As Neocons praise Obama's Afghan decision, MoveOn rebukes him

Submitted by Eternity on Tue, 12/01/2009 - 16:27.
Max Eternity - Like tens of millions of Americans, a year ago I cast my vote in the 2008 Presidential Election for Barack Obama.  I voted for Obama because he  constantly spoke about hope and change, assuring me and other Progressives that he would be the exact opposite of Bush.  Yet in spite of his appearance of integrity and savvy diplomacy, one year later, it seems instead that Obama's policies are almost  identical to Bush's policies--wars of aggression, welfare for the rich, political s

Harlem Gospel Choir Bails On Glenn Beck

Submitted by Eternity on Tue, 12/01/2009 - 16:08.

Max Eternity - Glenn Beck's attempt to pimp Blacks for his sweet malfeasance, message of hate, has backfired.   Beck, the current FOX News extremist-of-choice, had culled the Harlem Cospel Choir to sing for his upcoming Christmas TV Special--using that opportunity as a way to rebrand himself as mainstream--a friend to all, including the disenfranchised and black America.

A Bush in Progressive Clothing: Obama the Manchurian Candidate 2.0

Submitted by Eternity on Mon, 11/30/2009 - 17:20.

Common Dreams - If the Republicans had created and inserted into the Democratic Party a secret candidate designed to trick Democrats into electing him, so that he could then enact Republican policies of robbing from the poor to enrich the rich, expanding the military budget to a level not seen since World War II, putting the nation deeper into a global war against Islam, sabotaging efforts to combat climate change, and further deregulating the financial sector, could they have come up with anything better than Barack Obama?

In open letter, Michael Moore calls Obama "The New War President"

Submitted by Eternity on Mon, 11/30/2009 - 14:56.
Max Eternity - Senator Obama became President Obama because he promised an end to Middle East occupation, a restoration to the rule of law, transparency in government, single-payer healthcare, a reduction in military globalization and other progressive ideals. He has failed to deliver on almost all fronts. Obama has made some modest steps toward changing draconian War on Drug laws and sentencing--not obstructing states from adopting medical marijuana programs, and he has been more diplomatic than Bush in representing American interest abroad.

Food Stamp Use Soars, and Stigma Fades

Submitted by Eternity on Sun, 11/29/2009 - 18:39.

New York Times

MARTINSVILLE, Ohio — With food stamp use at record highs and climbing every month, a program once scorned as a failed welfare scheme now helps feed one in eight Americans and one in four children.

It has grown so rapidly in places so diverse that it is becoming nearly as ordinary as the groceries it buys. More than 36 million people use inconspicuous plastic cards for staples like milk, bread and cheese, swiping them at counters in blighted cities and in suburbs pocked with foreclosure signs.

Max Eternity - This morning 4 police officers were murdered in a Forza coffee shop located in Parkland, Washington. 

Details are still unfolding--questions remain.  And yet rage--violence--aggression seem so commonplace in contemporary US society.  Why?

Is this situation part of a larger trend?  Is this outburst to be seen as an isolated incident?

Max Eternity - The state of Michigan has opened the first cannabis college in the United States. 

It's a decision that could, in the long-term, prove a shrewd move--benefiting the state's economy.

Too, in a broader context, with medical marijuana now being legal in a few states, certain questions arise:

Mother Jones - Liberals have not done enough public wrestling with Massimo Calabresi and Michael Weisskopf's Time article on the ouster of White House counsel Gregory Craig. Perhaps that's because they don't want to deal with the article's troubling implications.

Why "terrorist" is an inherently racist word

Submitted by Eternity on Wed, 11/25/2009 - 13:40.

Max Eternity - Ever notice that we don't call white people terrorist?  Think about it, whenver a white man goes on a rampage with a gun, we call it "shootings" or something like that.  Yet when an Arab [non-white] does the same exact thing, it gets classified as terrorism.  Which is kinda like how during the New Orleans floods (after Katrina) white people who were struggling to stay alive were said to be "finding food" while black people were called "looters."

Obama Quietly Backs PATRIOT Act Provisions

Submitted by Eternity on Tue, 11/24/2009 - 12:06.

AntiWar - With the health care debate preoccupying the mainstream media, it has gone virtually unreported that the Barack Obama administration is quietly supporting renewal of provisions of the George W. Bush-era USA PATRIOT Act that civil libertarians say infringe on basic freedoms.


And it is reportedly doing so over the objections of some prominent Democrats.
