Happy Birthday!

Bush meeting with the pope. Maybe getting instructions on what to do about this? Planning a conversion like his brother Jeb?


Do you have any opinion on the works of Eric Phelps? This interview is amazing.

Happy birthday to your son. My sister was born on June 13, it's always been a pretty good day, even on Fridays!! Of course, there are always two sides to every story as one would expect of any Gemini.


DAMN Robert F**king Rubin on Obama's team, Damn. Rubin who led the charge in repealing the Glass Steagal Act on Clinton's watch. Rubin who grabbed the hard-earned wealth of pensions and savers and handed it to Citigroup's fearless leader Weill; When Weill told Rubin he had some important news, US Treasury Secretary Rubin reportedly quipped, "You're buying the government?"

Well, Obama has chosen the Goldman swindlers over the people.

Hi, Elaine.

To quote selectively from your essay,

(American workers are) "Helpless and clinging to people running the Democratic party who are NOT interested in workers surviving above minimal levels......"

"But the US is totally quiet as the poor workers here think that the Democrats who are run by Goldman Sachs, will save them."

Indeed. A bunch of lobotomized dodo birds facing inevitable extinction, or slavery, which is worse.

I talk to Democrats all the time and a more clueless bunch is unfindable. The Pubs at least are more honest. Not much, though, of course.

The voters are "idiots" in the classical Greek sense, "idioti", clueless rubes right off the turnip truck existing only to be milked. The idiots take to the Mass Media propaganda like it was their mother's milk.

I don't know how to fix it. Have tried for many decades. Elaine, you are doing some good work.

Off-topic, but not off-posting:

I'm sure that I'm not the only one puzzled by the context of the image chosen. Most intriguing, Please enlighten us.

Will now read rest of posting!

My son loves Japanese pop. Picture is from a performance he saw in Brooklyn,


Oh, well, I am glad to hear that. I was beginning to think that WAS your son.

The old saying goes,"Elect and elect, Tax and tax, and spend and spend--and the people are too stupid to know the difference". For the longest time, that statement was true. But I think people are beginning to wake up. More and more often, those two corporate shills, Limbaugh and Hannity, are getting their "wisdom" challenged by callers to their "shows". (Thie is almost invariably followed by a paid "caller" who will tell Sean or Rush how great they are.) What needs to be done? IMHO people need to stop caring about Angelina Jolie's kids, stop or curtail watching shows like Jerry Springer and the like and start paying attention to what the politicians are doing in Washington.


"The show has students storm the administration buildings in some capital like Washington, London or Paris, for example. They then hold a government official hostage and hold off the military while debating history, sexual politics and how to organize a commune."

You also want the scene where the military cuts off the water and utilities, seals off the occupied buildings so no supplies get in, and makes bets on how long the occupying students can hold out without food, water, or air conditioning.

Then the hostages die. Heh. Great TV.

Paul S

The "show" sounds lika cross between "The Real World" and "Survivor". HaHa. Prolly a good idea to pattern your show after proven "winners".

Elaine Meinel Supkis

Then there is the new TV reality show called 'Take My Taliban...PLEASE'. Players must wear turbans and tame camels and using their wits, arm themselves to shoot down or blow up NATO troops, fight Pakistan, Afganistan and other Presidents and win.

The winner gets 72 virgins in his afterlife. If a woman wins, she gets to escape.

Paul S

Elaine, I think 'Reality TV' is your niche. Now what about sponsors....

Buffalo Ken

yeah, where are the sponsors. They should be here. I agree Paul S.
