Major development in Auditor’s race

This is a major development in the 2010 race. Kenny Kalligher, Grassroots Party candidate for State Auditor, has signed the pledge to vote against Obama in 2012. His Green Party opponent, Annie Young, has not, which is surprising, because the Green Party exists to provide an alternative to the Corporate Parties. It appears the onus is now on the Young campaign to make the case that she's more progressive than Kalligher.

John Gray for Arkansas

The front page of this candidate's web site looks pretty darn good to me:


Now that Bill Halter is out of the race, maybe organized labor will kindly give Gray a chance.

Duy Ngo found dead

It's courageous Duy Ngo was still with the police force, rather than taking the settlement money and doing something else. Coincidentally he was in the news 5 days ago: http://www.twincities.com/localnews/ci_15214702

Ellison Files For Legal Separation

The media was all over the Gore divorce but nothing on Ellison. Chalk one up for the Minneapolis Mirror. It's one heckuva scoop...

Use sock to stop oil spill

Why can’t they use plastic or rubber sheets to contain the oil? Anchor a sheet to the ocean floor in a perimeter around the leak. Work around the outside and then attach the ends together to form an open-ended cylinder. Then, use a drawstring around the top of the sheet to secure it to a wide hose which leads to tankers on the surface. Then ship it to a reservoir and go back for another load.

Meanwhile, Rachel Maddow reported that they need an army of workers to deploy booms to guard the coast. People are willing to help, but they are not being put to work. If true, the blame for this part of the battle can be laid squarely on the Obama administration.

What is the problem? Are they trying to kill us? Are they trying to scare the shit out of us to build popular support for energy reform? Is the Deepwater Horizon to energy reform as 9/11 was to the Gulf War? Is that what it takes? Are world leaders possessed by some sort of perverse yin-yang mentality?

McKinney Mourns Freedom Flotilla to Gaza

Cynthia McKinney Mourns the Dead of the Freedom Flotilla to Gaza: People of U.S. & World Must End Israeli Impunity!


"The 12,000 internet squatters/written word grenade throwers, hired by the Israeli Foreign Ministry to defend Israel and attack peace activists online, are already busy spreading their orchestrated disinformation in cyberspace. Be very careful what you read and believe from special interest press and the internet. You could be reading one of Israel's hired hacks."
