Give the People What They Want: Noam Chomsky on the Heathcare Hold Up

As usual, Noam Chomsky is right on the money: health care reform in America is starting to become a possibility mostly because a sector of concentrated capital is beginning to push for it. The manufacturing sector, such as GM, is getting killed by the rising cost of health care so finally, there is some interest in reforming the system on Capitol Hill.

Never mind that the vast majority of the people have been wanting a single payer health care system for decades now. A recent poll showed how 72 percent of Americans want a public option and yet, there are some Democratic senators, led by North Carolina Senator Kay Hagan, who are so in bed with the vested interests in the health care industry, that are willing to go against the will of their own voters.

The time has come to let the US Senate know where the people stand. You can find out where individual Representatives and Senators stand on health care here. Let them know that health care is a human right, not a for profit business.

FOX News: "Worst Person in the World"

Australian owned Fox News channel has become the mouthpiece of sedition in the USA for some time. It started fomenting civil unrest against Obama since the Presidential campaign, and now that the right wing crazies are starting to come out and do what Fox News has been exhorting them to do, they act as if they have no responsibility while continuing their seditious propaganda as if they had no responsibility.

I have already blocked Fox on my TV set and I have called my cable provider to tell them that as a matter of balance, they should add Al Jazeera to their line-up and, possibly, put it next to the Fox News channel.

Right Wing Rhetoric of Purgation and Annihilation

Here is an example of right wing rhetoric of purgation and annihilation by CBS golf analyst David Feherty, as observed in Salon by writer Camille Paglia.

"From my own experience visiting the troops in the Middle East, I can tell you this, though: despite how the conflict has been portrayed by our glorious media, if you gave any U.S. soldier a gun with two bullets in it, and he found himself in an elevator with Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and Osama bin Laden, there's a good chance that Nancy Pelosi would get shot twice, and Harry Reid and bin Laden would be strangled to death."

Feeling The Hate In Jerusalem On Eve of Obama's Cairo Address

Youtube keeps removing this video. I guess censorship is a selective thing.
