TEAR DOWN THE WALL!

Demanding justice, peace and equity from the oligarchs!

NO MORE POLICE IMPUNITY – NO MORE POLICE BRUTALITY

The elites are meeting to devise new ways to rape the earth, kill and enslave poor and working people, coopt our resistance and steal our resources.

Which side are you on?

Shine On You Crazy Diamond

with one comment

Remember when you were young
You shone like the sun
Shine on you crazy diamond
Now there’s a look in your eyes
Like black holes in the sky
Shine on you crazy diamond
You were caught on the cross fire of childhood and stardom,
Blown on the steel breeze
Come on you target for faraway laughter,
Come on you stranger, you legend, you martyr, and shine

You reached for the secret too soon
You cried for the moon
Shine on you crazy diamond
Threatened by shadows at night
And exposed in the light
Shine on you crazy diamond
Well you wore out your welcome with random precision,
Rode on the steel breeze
Come on you raver, you seer of visions,
Come on you painter, you piper, you prisoner, and shine!

Recently discovered this excellent video deconstructing Shakira’s sudden burst of activism. Carlos has investigated her past affiliations and allegiances and found them quite troubling. Thanks to Carlos for his excellent videos and blog!

    A Little Secret About Obama’s Secrecy: More Secrets than the Bush Regime

    leave a comment »

    The administration, challenged by the president to be the most open, is now denying more Freedom of Information Act requests than Bush did

    By Andrew Malcolm, LA Times.com

    March 21, 2010

    The Democratic administration of Barack Obama, who denounced his predecessor, George W. Bush, as the most secretive in history, is now denying more Freedom of Information Act requests than the Republican did.

    Transparency and openness were so important to the new president that on his first full day in office, he dispatched a much-publicized memo saying: “All agencies should adopt a presumption in favor of disclosure, in order to renew their commitment to the principles embodied in FOIA, and to usher in a new era of open government. The presumption of disclosure should be applied to all decisions involving FOIA.”

    One of the exemptions allowed to deny Freedom of Information requests has been used by the Obama administration 70,779 times in its first year; the same exemption was used 47,395 times in Bush’s final budget year.

    An Associated Press examination of 17 major agencies’ handling of FOIA requests found denials 466,872 times, an increase of nearly 50% from the 2008 fiscal year under Bush.

    As Ed Morrissey notes on the blog Hot Air, during a time of war and terrorist threats, any government can justify not releasing some sensitive information. And true, Obama had previously been a legislator, not an executive.

    But why make such a big campaign deal over a previous administration’s secrecy when you’re going to end up being even more secretive?

    On March 16 to mark annual Sunshine Week, designed to promote openness in government, Obama applauded himself by issuing a statement:

    “As Sunshine Week begins, I want to applaud everyone who has worked to increase transparency in government and recommit my administration to be the most open and transparent ever.”

    However, a new study out March 15 by George Washington University’s National Security Archive finds less than one-third of the 90 federal agencies that process such FOIA requests have made significant changes in their procedures since Obama’s 2009 memo.

    So, a day later, White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel sent out yet another memo. Since the agencies ignored the memo from the president, they’ll all snap to when the staffer’s note arrives, don’t you think?

    Together at Last! Palin & Obama: Drill Baby Drill

    MUST READ:  Obama sheltered BPs Deepwater Horizon rig from regulatory requirement.
    BP Spill Threatens Vulnerable Ecosystems with Destruction
    SEE ALSO:      Obama Seeks to Contain Anger Over BP Oil Spill
    The BP Oil Spill and American Capitalism
    Four excellent MUST-READ articles on the World Socialist website http://www.wsws.org reveal:

    1. Obama was the largest single recipient of BP lobbyist $$$
    2. Obama exempted the BP Deepwater Horizon rig from regulation (see #1)

    3. Obama re-authorized offshore drilling in the so-called “climate change” bill (see #1) Endorsed by Sarah Palin…

    4. The oil spill catastrophe will have long term effects on the viability and survival of 1000s of species of birds, animals, plants and ecosystems and may lead to extinctions & billions of dollars of ruined coastlines, and ruined livelihoods

    5. The administration showed no remorse, nor plans to re-think its policy (aka sociopathy, anti-social and inappropriate behavior)
