Wed, 07/01/2009

Host Theresa Mitchell with the "News You're not Supposed to Know." The ultra rich continue to hold a stunningly disproportionate share of the world's wealth--and guess what?  They don't want to share.  And our government is reluctant to inconvenience them.  So government continues to neglect health, global climate crisis, etc. Also, new worries on swine flu.   Check out topic sources at Theresa's blog:  http://theresaspresswatch.blogspot.com/

Theresa Mitchell with the "news you're not supposed to know." A look at the "parasite" class . . .  "In 2007, the year the new Survey of OECD Report: Gap between Rich, Poor Growing: OECD Report: Gap between Rich, Poor GrowingConsumer Finances data cover, a family needed to sport a net worth of at least $8.3 million to enter the nation’s richest 1 percent. Together, these top 1 percent families held a collective net worth of $21.9 trillion, $3.5 trillion more than the net worth of all the families in the nation’s bottom 90 percent combined." -- http://toomuchonline.org
What's troubling about these statistics?  How do the rich gain from invalidating gay marriage?  What allows the truly rich to remain invisible? When will we value generosity and the security it provides?  And stop lionizing the parasites?

Also, Deaths in Iraq rival "Killing Fields" of Cambodia.  Millions dead.  And the bombing will go on . .. and on . .. and on? NAFTA to be expanded?  The role of the Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP) born of the "war on terror."  How is the government conscripting the private sector and individuals to spy on us? Find out about InfraGard.   More military aid to Latin America? If you oppose the Iraq war, your bank account could be frozen?  All in Project Censored 2009.

Ye scurvy barrrnacles! Harken!

Thursday I'd be preparin' to launch PrrressWench with Peter Leeson, who has written "The Invisible Hook," (get it?), a history of the democracies that we call historic pirate society. 'Tis an eye opener and no mistake.

I needed PIRATES who'd be ready to say "ARRRGH" a lot in the background.

And then I needed rum! A lot of rum!

How did the pirate raise his mast?

He used a wench!

Why does it take pirates so long to learn the alphabet?

Because they can spend years at C!

Yes, I'd be using BOTH THOSE AWFUL JOKES AND MORE, so be sure to put in a landin' party, and check it out.

Host Theresa Mitchell with the "news you're not supposed to know:"    Continuing global recession with rising unemployment.
