The Trick

E-mail Print PDF

FADE IN:

A newsreel reporter, hot on the trail of the meaning of “Rosebud,” is interviewing Mr. Bernstein, Charles Foster Kane’s personal business manager. One of the things Bernstein tells the reporter, “… it's no trick to make a lot of money … if all you want … is to make a lot of money.”

When I saw Citizen Kane over 40 years ago I thought it was a well written line, but not a realistic one. It seemed like a bit of dialogue a relatively inexperienced 25 year old Orson Welles might write for effect instead of realism. But I was a relatively inexperienced 20 year old. Now I know it’s as true as gravity, “… it's no trick to make a lot of money … if all you want … is to make a lot of money.”

Is Your Religion a Cult? Of Course It Is!

E-mail Print PDF

When I was a little kid I started a club. It was kind of small, only four members including me. Nonetheless I was the leader and I made the rules. The only rule I actually remember was very simple, and very childish. The rule stated that no club member could believe that super heroes were real...except for my favorite one at the time...Spiderman. Who would have thought that at age 7, I actually understood the foundation of all religions..."your personal favorite fairy tale is the only one in which you may believe."

For those who do not know the definition of "cult," here you go...

Condoleezza Rice, War Monger: A Reminder

E-mail Print PDF

By Reggie, Contributing Editor, TvNewsLIES.org

Another revisionist memoir is about to reach the book stores of America.  Condoleezza Rice, like several of her neocon cohorts, has written a memoir to salvage her legacy of deceit and duplicity as the nation's National Security Adviser and Secretary of State during the Bush/PNAC years.. Predictably, and with the complicity of reviewers in the corporate media, a near decade of shame and evil will morph into the benign portrait of an American champion of liberty and democracy in a nation that could afford her No Higher Honor.

That, understandably, is what revisionist historians do.

As a result, what will appear nowhere in the interviews, the critiques, or the articles that promote Rice's book will be her role in a major and highly secret group that was organized to sell an illegal, immoral and long-planned war to the unwitting people of America.  Nowhere in the promotional tour to sell her self-serving memoir will Condoleezza Rice be asked about the White House Iraq Group (WHIG), and her part in its criminal activity.

If You Oppose National Health Care, You Are an Idiot

E-mail Print PDF

With all the debate about health care reform (which is NOT what is going on...see below), the epidemic of American idiocy is being totally ignored. The debate about the state of health care serves to demonstrate how economic overlords have completely destroyed the average American's ability to think critically or to see the obvious. American's are fooled into being their own worst enemies on so many levels. But when it comes to the debate on health care, it is absolutely frightening to see how stupid this nation has become.

Noise

E-mail Print PDF

When I find myself in times of trouble, The Firesign Theatre’s Chester Cadaver comes to me … speaking words of wisdom, “Sure, understanding today's complex world of the future is a little like having bees live in your head. But, there they are.

And those damn bees are noisy. With all the humming and the buzzing, it’s hard to get a thought in edgewise. And if you think about it for a moment or two … if you can think about it through all that noise … you might realize that’s the bees’ job. To keep you from thinking at all.

When I was a kid I was deathly afraid of atomic bombs. I had seen newsreels of Hiroshima after the blast and knew “Duck and Cover” wouldn’t keep me from being turned into radioactive charcoal when The Commies dropped The Big One. The Cuban Missile Crisis made home fallout shelters the talk of radio, TV, magazines, and newspapers. I didn’t know my dad had a fatalistic side to him until I asked if he was going to get a shelter for us and he said, “No. If they drop the bomb we’re all going to die anyway.” Soon after, I read that the hydrogen, or H-Bomb, was thousands of times more powerful than the bombs we dropped on Japan. I remained fearful of thermonuclear war until 1980. Then I discovered something more powerful than all the nuclear weapons in the world. I was no longer afraid of bombs. I was terrified of television.

Day in the Life of Joe Middle-Class Republican

E-mail Print PDF

Joe gets up at 6:00am to prepare his morning coffee. He fills his pot full of good clean drinking water because some liberal fought for minimum water quality standards. He takes his daily medication with his first swallow of coffee. His medications are safe to take because some liberal fought to insure their safety and work as advertised.

All but $10.00 of his medications are paid for by his employers medical plan because some liberal union workers fought their employers for paid medical insurance, now Joe gets it too. He prepares his morning breakfast, bacon and eggs this day. Joe’s bacon is safe to eat because some liberal fought for laws to regulate the meat packing industry.

Massachusetts Already Has Romney/Obama Care. Massachusetts Physicians Prefer Single-Payer

E-mail Print PDF

by Jerry Polilcoff,  Research Committe Chair and original Board member of Healthcare4ALLPA

Earlier today, Dr. Walter Trou referred to a survey of Massachusetts physicians where 34% supported moving to a single-payer system. Dr. Trou , a former Philadelphia Health Commissioner, also is a board member of Healthcare4AllPA and Physicians for a National Health Plan (PNHP).

I found the study that was conducted in 2010,  as well as the 2011 study that is now out.

The survey is in a pdf format that does not permit copying (you can print it or down load it though).  I’ve summarized the findings that are of value to single-payer advocates, and they are attached.  The url for both the 2010 and 2011 studies are at the end.
