Lots and lots to make up for the quiet past couple of days….
How the cops get away without a warrant–something called an “administrative subpoena“, which doesn’t even require a judge’s signature. End run around the 4th, much?
In Houston, cop rapes woman in full uniform, taking advantage of her undocumented status.
CIA waterboarding much more than previously acknowledged, in support of Gadhafi.
“Earth’s richest 1,000 individuals now control as much wealth as the poorest 2.5 billion people on the planet… In the US, the wealthy dominate our government: 47 percent of US representatives are millionaires, as are 67 percent of US senators.”
“Justice Department Labels BP’s Behavior ‘Gross Negligence And Willful Misconduct’ In Lead Up To Gulf Oil Spill” That’s a laugh, considering how the EPA let the cover-up go on. I’m not holding my breath that something will be done about it.
All those jobs being added we keep hearing about? They’re mostly McJobs that people cannot sustain themselves on.
US infrastructure risk crumbling from neglect. There’s still no explanation on why there hasn’t been a new New Deal to get us out of this mess.
Not only do they have to worry about contamination through fracking, farmers are now vying for water from these companies.
Honduras to create private, corporately owned cities, with its own legal and tax systems. Since Latin America has long been a testing ground, how long before it happens here?
WEF’s estimation of the US global competitiveness list drops two places, to number five.
They’re finally acknowledging that the entire Eurozone is rapidly heading to recession (even Germany).
17 million Americans (or 5.5% of the population) has major food insecurity–as in, going hungry and skipping meals.
Shifting the blame: BP accuses Halliburton of hiding evidence. Meanwhile, LA looks for the definitive “smoking gun” on the whole thing–so maybe real clean up and restitution can begin.
