TVNL Comment: If there was an iota of justice in the US, anyone who contributed a single dime to anyone in the Bush killing machine would be convicted of aiding a terrorist group.  

Citi, AIG Won't Drop Big Sports Sponsorships

AIG, Citibank and a number of other federally bailed-out financial institutions have no plans to cancel hundreds of millions of dollars in sports team sponsorships, even as they take billions in taxpayer support, ABC News has found.

Struggling Citibank just sealed a multi-billion-dollar emergency "backstop" deal with the U.S. government. The financial behemoth, suffering with billions in bad mortgage-related assets on its books, recently shed 53,000 workers and saw its stock price lose over half its value. Yet it's in a 20-year contract to pay the New York Mets $400 million to name the team's new stadium "Citi Field." 

TVNL Comment: So in essence you, the tax payer, subsidized the milti-million dollar baseball player, who PLAYS GAMES for a living! Not only that...they have made it so expensive to see games that many people can't afford to even go to a game anymore!

Government prepared to lend $7.4 trillion

The U.S. government is prepared to lend more than $7.4 trillion on behalf of American taxpayers, or half the value of everything produced in the nation last year, to rescue the financial system since the credit markets seized up 15 months ago.

The unprecedented pledge of funds includes $2.8 trillion already tapped by financial institutions in the biggest response to an economic emergency since the New Deal of the 1930s, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. The commitment dwarfs the only plan approved by lawmakers, the Treasury Department’s $700 billion Troubled Asset Relief Program. Federal Reserve lending last week was 1,900 times the weekly average for the three years before the crisis.

TVNL Comment: First of all the "Fed" is not government. What they are doing is stealing the money of the next ten generations! The only way to stop this is to end the Fed.

Father murdered, wife and daughter jailed: killers call the shots in Iraq's justice system

Maliki is among tens of thousands of Iraqis for whom justice is a delusory buzz-word of a departing occupation. As the US prepares to withdraw its combat troops from most towns and villages by the middle of next year, the rule of law remains unenforceable throughout all layers of the nascent state it will leave behind.

Rich countries launch great land grab to safeguard food supply

Rich governments and corporations are triggering alarm for the poor as they buy up the rights to millions of hectares of agricultural land in developing countries in an effort to secure their own long-term food supplies.
