Boiling blood

As we know, BP’s latest attempt to plug the hole, “top kill,” has failed. As a result, they lost 15 percent of their market share. On top of that, they’re now censoring cleanup workers from taking and posting pictures of the harm they’ve done to the environment, although a few can be seen here. (Caution: These pictures are disgusting and disturbing and will make your blood boil).

As we also know, Isn’treal Israel violated international law by raiding and opening fire on a ship carrying humanitarian aid to Gaza. One of the murdered peace-keepers was an American, yet America has refused to condemn the vicious and deliberate attack. Look at Israel’s astounding admission, and Helen Thomas is the only journalist to ask the tough question. Here’s the main problem with Israel: It’s becoming it’s own worst enemy; Israel is creating a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Glenn Beck fails U.S. history and declares that the owner of Fox contributed to 9/11.

George W. Bush admits to being a criminal.

Here’s another admission from another right-wing scumbag that’ll make your blood boil.

Our First Amendment rights are under assault from police.

Oh the humanity

Here’s a WTF moment for your weekend. It’s also a lesson on why you should never use spell check.

Goldman Sacks was busted for fraud, which they knew about and designed their system to fail in an attempt to bring the country down.

Oh the humanity! Greedy Wall Street executives committing fraud! As if we didn’t know this happens all the time.

In more sobering news, an article on Salon highlights the current state of journalism.

I’m speechless.

As if we needed another reason to hate loathe abhor Comcash Comtrash Comcast, they’re building more right-wing news sites like Fixed Noise, WND, et al all while trying to acquire NBC. (Oh the irony).

This should disqualify them from buying NBC and owning a monopoly. No ands, ifs or buts.

The state of Nebraska hates women and their pesky legal right to an abortion.

Apparently Fixed Noise Fox News take journalistic ethics into account.

If only the terrorist baggers would have know this.

Speaking of terrorists, Monday, April 19 marks the 15th anniversary of the Oklahoma City bombing. Rachel Maddow did some great investigative journalism and found unreleased interview days before McVeigh died. She recorded a special, The McVeigh Tapes: Confessions of an American Terrorist, which will air Monday at 9 p.m. ET. Here are some links: 1 and 2.

P.S. The blog has over 150 views! Keep it up!

Oh. Please. No.

This article highlights a scary situation: fundamentalists praying for a Christian takeover of the media. Here’s a snip-it of just how scary it is:

Porter, who has done many bizarre things such as claiming that anyone voting for Obama is going to hell and writing a fictional account of Christians forced into “re-education camps” had Hilary Clinton won the 2008 presidential election, actually prayed for the “Christian takeover” of the media. Apparently amongst other things, she wants “more influence than Oprah Winfrey, ” and desires “to make CBS ‘the “Christian Broadcasting System.'”

Oh please no. We already have a problem with media ownership. Furthermore, we already have a Christian-dominated media… it’s called Fixed Noise Fox News. We’ve seen how fundamentalism has ruined our country, including the Republican party. ┬áCan you imagine America with Christian-owned and dominated media? We’d look like Isn’treal Israel.
