Bush's Brain Karl Rove Thinks Torture Is Good

Karl Rove has caused a storm of protest by saying that he is proud of waterboarding and other “enhanced interrogation techniques” used on prisoners by the US and internationally condemned as torture.   According to Rove torture is good and it seems international law and human rights don't matter.   This was the man who was the Bush administration's public relations advisor and often called "Bushes Brain"

PEJ News -
AP News reports that a man in Pennsylvania stole a Walmart scooter and tried to escape with $50.   As the story goes he just got released from hospital after a domestic dispute where the man had been hit with a frying pan and table leg.   Still in his hospital gown he got a scooter and got his ex-girlfriend to pay for his prescription medication.   Instead he takes the money and makes a break for it on the Walmart scooter.  He was apprehended and charged with robbery and disorderly conduct.   It is not clear whether the charge was for the $50 or the Walmart scooter.

After Copenhagen

PEJ News - There are three things we can apply now rather than waiting for the next big rendez-vous of world leaders:

  1. Start capping emissions from both industrial and transportation/building sources now - we know who the emitters are.
  2. Temperatures in the Arctic vary but some have already reached 3 degree Centigrade increase; capping at 2 degrees as recommended at Copenhagen is no longer possible.
  3. Charge the CEOs, board of directors of the fossil fuel industries and delinquent government leaders with crimes against humanity.  They have known of the problem for decades and stalled while millions suffer and die from the effects.

The Loser's Guide: Redefining Winning Before It's Too Late

PEJ News - treebeard -There's an aspect to contemporary values that threatens both the planet and humanity itself: the false duality of winners and losers. There are a lot of historical and economic and even biological reasons for this, but more than anything else this paradigm presents our greatest risk and challenge.

There are many reasons why humans compete and some may even be valid, but this impulse has been co-opted by the marketplace and now defines almost all aspect of society.

EnCana Bombed

PEJ News -
Speculation about the bomber of EnCana gas facilities has been running wild.   Well here is my theory.  The RCMP  say it is a terrorist.   How do they know this?  I suspect that their interest is in a bigger budget and justice is the furthest thing from their minds.

Swine Flu and Arsenic in Animal Feeds "The Smoking Gun"

PEJ News -
cowboss - Swine Flu: Influenza A (H1N1) Susceptibility Linked To Common Levels Of Arsenic Exposure
.

What We Do Know Can Hurt Us -- "The ability to mount an immune response to influenza A (H1N1) infection is significantly compromised by a low level of arsenic exposure." This statement was made WRT when a "normal person or mouse is infected with the flu". I would suggest that this is equally true when a pig, chicken or turkey is infected with the flu. You and I know that Millions of pounds of arsenic are fed to poultry and pigs at the CAFOs of the world (and here someone asks - Why is the pigs and chickens immune system compromised to the point that these viruses are allowed to overwhelm it and mutate???) This Arsenic ends up in the meat you and I eat, the animal byproducts and poultry manure the livestock is forced to eat, as well as in the manure spread on farmers fields to fertilize crops which are in turn consumed by humans and animals (here, you must be starting to see the circle). You see, ALL the immune systems of humans and animals are "compromised" by this needless and reckless addition of Arsenic into the animals diet. When will "those mandated to look out for our safety", our "regulators" have the courage to admit their mistakes of the past and Ban the feeding of Arsenic to poultry and pigs.

Beyond The Soaring Rhetoric of Obama's Cairo Speech: A Toxic Innocence At Home

PEJ News - Phil Rockstroh -
Even as President Barrack Obama waxed eloquent in Cairo, Egypt, on the moral imperatives of the community of nations, public opinion polls released in the United States revealed that, by a substantial percentage, its citizens believe torture is an acceptable option for interrogation of suspects deemed terrorists by various U.S. governmental agencies.

In addition, other polls show a majority of the American public hold the opinion that the all-American theme park of state torture, located at Guant
