To be honest with you, I used to love all the seasons. Now the winter's are hot and the summer's are dry and it's probably just the century or something but the reason I'm hating the seasons the last years is because it's hard to shake the feeling that the global warming might have gone too far and our inability to address it means things will only get worse.
Aren't I positive tonight?
Let's go to humor. Isaiah's The World Today Just Nuts "The Ambassador to Swingtown"
Brett McGurk is Barack's nominee for US Ambassador to Iraq. He's just not experienced enough, not smart enough and not ethical enough. An ambassador is supposed to show the best face of the country. Instead we've got can't keep it in his pants McGurk.
Next up was "The Trusted Driver of Commerce."
The White House needs to come up with a better story. A seizure may have taken place. But that will not explain 3 accidents (1 car hit once, 1 car hit twice) or leaving the scene -- driving away from the scene -- of an accident.
Barry Gray (WSWS) covers a topic I noted Friday:
At a press conference on the economy held Friday, President Barack Obama exuded indifference toward the plight of American workers, declaring that “the private sector is doing fine” and adding, “We’ve seen record profits in the corporate sector.”
With the official unemployment rate once again rising and job-creation virtually grinding to a halt, the president heaped praise on corporate America. “Overall,” he said, “the private sector has been doing a good job creating jobs.”
Even by the debauched standards of American politics, these are remarkable statements coming from a president presiding over the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. Recalling the “let them eat cake” outlook of the Ancien Régime on the eve of the French Revolution, they epitomize a president, party and political system wholly divorced from the people and entirely in the service of a financial oligarchy.
Jesus, Mary and Joseph. Barry O can never be wrong. The White House has spent most of the day snarling at reporters that they need to do their job and their job -- get this -- is not to report what the president said but to report what he meant.
No, their job is to report what he says.
That's their job.
And for that reason, we're touching on this topic one more time.
This is C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot" for Monday:
