I nominate Julian Assange for Nobel Peace Prize and Time Man Of The Year award. He is a HERO and should be commended for his service in EXPOSING corrupt government activities around the world. Can't wait for the banking stuff...HEADS REALLY NEED TO ROLL FOR THE GLOBAL FINANCIAL MELTDOWN.

Posted in: G-20 refuses to back U.S. push on China's currency See in context

Friday’s statement is also unlikely to resolve the most vexing problem facing the G-20 members: how to fix a global economy that’s long been marked by huge U.S. trade deficits with exporters like China, Germany and Japan.

WHY oh why doesn't the US learn to pay NOW for its goods & services from the rest of the world instead of LATER?? This is the main problem that the other G-20 countries don't shout loud enough about. Are they afraid of insulting Americans? The truth hurts: Stop running up huge deficits and holding countries like Japan and China hostage with a huge pile of paper IOUs.

On the other hand, the G-20 has been grossly IRRESPONSIBLE in letting the US get away with this financial suicide over the past 20 or 30 years. If a corporation were to take on such proportional debt, the banks would call in their loans and/or would NOT lend it any more money UNTIL it paid down a good chunk of its debt. So WHY does the US get away with this behaviour? If that were Argentina, Iceland, or Greece, all hell would break loose a LONG time ago. Again, I blame the US "lap dog" media for not giving their audience the full scoop. Then again, corporations own the media.

According to the investment guru, Jim Rogers, the US became a net debtor nation around 1988 and racks up $1 Trillion of debt every 15 months (or something like that). Peek YouTube to see tons of Jim Rogers interviews. The dude is a genius and he keeps saying the US dollar and it's economy are not fundamentally sound.

Posted in: Latin American leaders question Calif move to legalize marijuana See in context

Afro-Americans and Latinos in the US also are annoyed at the racist, disproportionate drug sentences they receive in comparison to whites who are caught with marijuana. Obviously this was deliberate...to disenfranchise a certain segment of the population. This is just one of the many reasons why cannabis should be LEGALIZED. Let the cops do REAL police work and go after DANGEROUS criminals like rapists, child molesters, terrorists et al.

Posted in: Dark clouds for Democrats as Obama embarks on last push See in context

"Where were the voices of TimR, manfromamerica, RR2, etc. when bush and the GOP was ratcheting up the federal debt by $6 trillion? Silent. Nothing. Not a squeak. Now, when the other team is in charge, they all go nuts. Conservatives' thought masters in the Right wing media may well turn out to be king makers this cycle."

SushiSake is RIGHT on the MONEY. WHERE oh where were the Republican fanboys when Bush1-2/Reagan ran up the federal deficit and with massive military spending?? All that money that went to the military could've been used to pay off debts and fund programs for the WORKING CLASS. Can a right wing fanboy please explain this long slumber and a sudden AWAKENING once Obama came to power???

Mind u, I'm not too thrilled with Obama -- I'm not even American. He should NOT have bailed out the banks or even GM. Republican fanboys claim they don't want the government interfering with the economy?? Right?? Well, the Feds should've cut the life-line to the banks, GM and other UNPRODUCTIVE entities. Also, Obama should've ended the War on Drugs and save his countrymen BILLION$. And the US needs to cut Defence (er Offence) spending to about $380 BILLION. Bush was very soft of illegal immigrants because most businesses LOVE the CHEAP labour costs that Americans won't accept. Utter hypocrisy here.

Finally, it was big business (what Republicans like) that sent all of those jobs to China. And they ain't ever coming back. So HOW will these jobs materialize in the future??

Posted in: Gunmen massacre 13 at party in Mexico See in context

Talking2U has the right idea. Now, check this out:

Cash aid programs, neighborhood improvement initiatives, educational and job-training programs were part of the new strategy, together with ubiquitous convoys of blue federal police trucks patrolling “safe corridors” throughout the city.

Well, the cash-aid programs aren't as LUCRATIVE as the EASY drug money. Right?? It's obvious what Mexico and the US must do: LEGALIZE all recreational drugs. Of course, we all know that both governments have their dirty hands in the drug trade and that's why it's too hard to give up. Only a fool would believe otherwise. Furthermore, it's clear both governments do not give a rat's ass about PUBLIC SAFETY; otherwise they would've legalized said drugs a LONG time ago. People, wake up and ELECT sensible leaders.

It all starts on Nov 2 in California with Prop 19 to LEGALIZE cannabis (marijuana). The majority is now in favour of this and I predict that this event will be a domino effect in other US states and countries around the world. Mark my words!! Novemeber 2nd, 2010 is the day that the Mexican drug cartels start to lose their free money.

Posted in: Obama targets key groups in election's home stretch See in context

It's amazing how GOP backers shy away from pertinent questions relating to the rampant spending of the Bush era, 2 failed wars, unwise tax cuts and a host of other gaffes. Honestly, I don't see Democrats or Republicans solving America's mess.

What's needed is 1 or 2 true alternative parties who can form some sort of coalition. A major problem with US elections is that you vote one party out, and the other gains control. It's the biggest farce of democracy on the planet.

In Canada we have about 5 viable alternatives (Conservatives, Bloc, NDP, Green Party, Liberal) and about 11 fringe parties who vy for power. The irony, eh??

@TimRussert SuishiSake3 has thrown a lot of sensible questions your way, but you fail miserably to answer them. Where did Clinton's surplus go that Bush inherited? To think 48% of eligible voters in 2008 chose McCain/Palin for the White House says a lot about flawed logic. And this is a Canadian's perspective.

Yeah, Bibi. But don't forget to thank to US taxpayers for the generous loans & free MONEY amounting in value of hundreds of BILLIONS (maybe a trillion?) since independence. A silent majority within the US are annoyed that their tax dollars are supporting Israel and its policies. Talk about misrepresentation WITH taxation.

Ack, this nonsense is getting out of hand!!! Gees! But do Americans actually know (or understand) WHY they (the islamists) HATE them?? Well, it certainly ISN'T because you elect your leaders in a 2-party (non competitive) nation. Condi and George Bush Jr. sure made u look foolish when this was primary reason for said hatred. No, it's because you keep propping up oil dictators in the Middle East who don't represent the best interest of their people. As long as the addicting oil clouds your judgement, this issue will NEVER be resolved.

Well I for one don't fly on US-based airlines due to various circumstances - primarily the threat of terrorism against that nation. I'm happy with KLM, Air Canada and I won't hesitate to fly Qatar Airways or Emirates since I hear their service is AMAZING.

Posted in: Shoes, eggs hurled at Blair in Dublin See in context

And the fact remains that it was ideas you support that armed Saddam so he could commit his worst crimes in the first place. And it was ideas you support that got untold numbers of innocent Iraqis killed for what was over and done with decades ago. And you believed the lies and apparently, still do.

Yet another excellent rebuttal MistWizard!! It's too bad half of the American population don't see things that way. And this is why these wars will be ongoing -- because, ultimately, THE PEOPLE (er citizens) are responsible for putting these nutjobs in power. And then we wonder WHY THEY (the Middle Easterners) HATE Us. :-)

Posted in: Shoes, eggs hurled at Blair in Dublin See in context

I salute the British for having the enough shame to launch projectiles at Blair. Americans must have no idea what shame even means the way Bush is treated, and Bush is worse yet.

Excellent points MistWizard. I'm from North of the American border (Canada) and am absolutely grateful for our Liberal French-Canadian Prime Minister, Jean Chretien, who, back then, told the US "Noooooooo, we're not following your sorry behinds in Eyerack." Well, he might as well have said it that way. lol. :-) That will be one of his greatest legacies even though the US media came down hard on Canada for NOT supporting their neighbour. Thanks, but not thanks, we'll stay home for this one. :-)

MistWizard said: "But acting like these girls are innocent waifs is just laughably stupid. So is acting like sex is some damaging destructive force. Its 2010, not 1860. Sex is safe and fun with just a little precaution."

I agree completely dude! Let me just say that it's remarkable that our MALE dominated WORLD has a problem with LEGALIZING prostitution. Perhaps because it's probably the one innate TOOL they (women) have in order to FREE themselves from the tyranny of a matriarchical society.

This is WHY nobody gives a rats a*s about Pakistan...because they allow this idiotic group to terrorize their country for so f-ing LONG. When will it end Pakistani people?? When will you rise up and DESTROY this vermin?? Your reluctance to as a NATION to eradicate the Taliban is perhaps the main reason NO ONE ELSE IN THE FREE WORLD WANTS TO HELP YOU. That and your country's corrupt politics. You could learn a little bit from your neighbour, India.

Posted in: Man gets 20 years for killing Japanese woman in Bali See in context

About an hour later, Shimada invited the two t

o her rented home for drinks. Inside the house, after some drinks, the two men went to the second floor where Shimada was taking a bath and demanded sex.

When Shimada refused, the two beat her and dragged her to the bedroom.

WHAT was Shimada thinking?? One man is already asking for trouble in these "scenarios", but TWO?? And taking off to have a bath? This testimony doesn't seem right. I smell a lying rat in these 2 perps. They should be EXECUTED or tortured to death -- slowly. In Kenya, they'd be sentenced to death in a heartbeat. What a CRAZY world we live in.

What they should do after 90 minutes is force each team to remove 2 players to open up the game. That would be sweet. But the golden goal would work too. In the NFL, the first team to score in over time wins.

We need a viable fitness revolution in the world!! Too many peeps (er people) are just lazing around the Idiot Box (er TV) and/or over-consuming too many processed foods that lead to obesity.

I fondly remember growing up in the Caribbean, The USA and Canada during my youth. I was always outdoors playing pickup basketball, bike riding, playing road tennis, going for long walks/bike rides, etc. But today, kids just seem less active -- except for their fingers on the video game console. BTW, the Idiot Box has really become the world's #1 addiction.

Posted in: 19 slain at Mexico drug rehab center; 20 in another city See in context

"President Felipe Calderon, whose war with drug cartels has seen nearly 23,000 people killed since he took office in late 2006, issued a statement condemning the shootings.

'They are outrageous acts that reinforce the conviction of the need to fight criminal groups who carry out such barbaric acts with full legal force,' he said."

Ha ha ha. Calderon sounds like the drug kingpin in Miami Vice that Crockett was always trying to nail. It's so obvious Calderon and his Mexican fat cat politicos are PART of the DRUG PROBLEM in Mexico. Ya think they're making money out of the illegal drugs trade?? Hell yeah!! But I'm shocked that the Mexican people actually put up with this nonsense. I don't believe that country has a real democracy anyways.

Mexico is a bloody FAILED STATE. Seriously dudes!! What a messed up country. The solution to its drug cartel problem is staring it right in the face: LEGALIZE EVERYTHING & put the cartels out of business. Obviously they won't do it since I'm sure some government fat cats are making a killing (pun intended) from DRUG MONEY. Makes perfect sense to me.

They have the industrial might to do so, but I feel the US likes being there to check mate China and Russia.

We're at a junction now in world trade where unrelated (maybe related?) factors such as over-population, IGNORANCE, scarcity (water, food, etc.), growing worldwide obesity, and indebtness is going to create one hell of a FUBAR economic scenario. Everybody's in debt and massive government borrowing/deficits are creating a bizzaro world -- unlike anything we've ever seen before.
