Positive Media Spin On Gulf Coast Oil Spill Anniversary

February24
By: Nat on February 24, 2011

Media, the powers at be, are putting a positive spin on visiting the Gulf Coast .  I’m concerned that we are missing the bigger picture.  I want businesses to prevail but at what cost?  They have been using machines to dig and rake the sand, what about the water?  I would like to know what  independent studies have come up with and how many there are. Well PSU under Charles Fisher has been doing studies in the Gulf prior to and after the  oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico . I hope they can tell us honestly what is going on with ocean life,  and  its total environmental exposure for communities around it.  I want to find a list of how many researchers are in the Gulf.

I’m going boating on Saturday so I am looking forward to seeing what the water looks like.

The Tillman Story, Wanting To Change Our Military Lies

February10
By: Nat on February 10, 2011

I finally watched The Tillman Story, Pat Tillman, what a beautiful spirit, and his beautiful, loyal, loving family.  It is appalling that our government, the United States Department of Defense ( Their Website) orchestrated propaganda to keep the truth from his parents and family,( other military families have had the same experience)  and keep wrongful wars going, lying mostly about everything !  Men and women sign up with the United States Armed Forces for many reasons, the biggest one is their loyalty to America to defend it !  The many people who enlist in the U.S. military put their lives on the line, to intern, get duped and insulted by their own government !  It is utterly disgraceful to treat human beings without any regard .

How many military personnel die from friendly fire?

Must See Movie, Joe vs The Volcano

January27
By: Nat on January 27, 2011

The eighties, nineties, and some earlier movies are just great to go back to.  Dialogue is so important , the message or messages it leaves you with.  That time period in movies was minimal and more realistic, people in film were normal looking and we related to them much easier.  Joe Versus  The Volcano, just a great movie, with a great message. There  are so many great lines in this film. If you have a chance , watch it!

The Republicans Will Always Have A Lee Atwater

January21
By: Nat on January 21, 2011

A couple of months ago I watched Boogie Man , The Lee Atwater Story, a documentary about his pre- Karl Rove spin abilities  for Republican Candidates such as Ronald Reagan and George H. W.  Bush Sr.

It is always interesting to watch a collective compiled journey of a forgotten force.  I may be incorrect, however, it always seems the Republican party slings a little more mud.

Watched An Episode That Took Me Back To 9/11/2001

December23
By: Nat on December 23, 2010

There was a TV series, The Lone Gunmen, that aired for 1 3 episodes and it was created and ran in 2001 before September 11, 2001. I watched an episode and it was eerie, it was about a plane crashing into the World Trade Center.    This just left a weird feeling,  a million scenarios, incidents can happen in a life time, to see it played out on a TV show , it makes for questions of coincidence.

What ever happened to the investigation of 9/11?  There are so many unanswered questions regarding this incident.  Remember the Michael Moore documentary Sicko with all the rescue responders that got ill?   Well, a lot of them have died ,and  after 9 years,  others  still have no health coverage, why?   I put Jon Stewart’s  link to the Daily Show, he is my man, always putting fire under much needed cabooses!

After the air date of Dec. 16, 2010 , Mr. Stewart caused some ruckus , enough to get emergency responders some of the help they so desperately need!!! Check it out!

Airport TSA Frisko, Fiasco

December6

TSA, (about TSA)

Ron Paul

The airport security is really flawed, with today’s perfecting technology there should be a better security system in place.  I do not want a strangers hands all over me, radiation exposure, or  a public  naked picture of me.   I do not want my freedoms to be penalized for inadequate security measure strategies.   Today, Science and Technology are capable of a far more efficient, system.

What are the rules for private air travelers?

With the US Intelligence and Security Agencies in America, there are better alternatives.  We lead the globe with our  military background, we are a powerhouse and yet we resort to less than security measures!!   Something smells foul.

Ellsberg And Assange Are Sending The Message!!

November30
By: Nat on November 30, 2010

Whether it was the leak of the Vietnam war or the Iraq war, These men did all this work  to wake us up , inform us of the cover ups of  wars!!!!  History is always repeating itself.  The people, places, fear lingo, etc. are different, however, the strategies of cover up are repeated.  They are doing a witch hunt with Assange just like they did with Daniel EllsbergThe Most Dangerous Man In America (credit production to Judith Ehrlich , Rick Goldsmith plus others who made the story possible).

Daniel Ellsberg

John Dean

It is uncanny to watch this incredible interview and disappointing that we are right back in the same place with another wrongful war.

Sacramento, CA Tent City And Others Across America

Tent City

Sacramento CBS 13

What are states doing about crawling tent communities  from the west  to the east coast?   People are losing their jobs and their homes.  We do not see this coverage on the news.  One States local official indicated  they did not want to  appear like a 3rd world country, well wake up, it is happening!   Some of these tent cities are being closed down, where are the people being moved to?  Are states taking a look at their current homeless facilities or strategies?    Thank goodness that citizens  make news with their own videos.

Stories  come and go , the important ones rarely are covered.

Where Did Reliable, Factual Journalism And Media Go?

November18
By: Nat on November 18, 2010

Julian Assange is having his life work minimized by defamation of character.  He is ahead of  his time, seeing the demise of information with all the controlled journalism and media around the world.  He is not popular with a lot of countries because  his organization Wikileaks exposes all the secretive,greedy, government activities.  Wiki leaks is telling us that we need to require more of our information providers throughout the world.  What has happened to the code of  journalism ?  I want real, truthful news.  This video relays  important points in an interview with Chris Anderson.

Job Requests Surfacing For Oil Clean Up Again In Pensacola Fl

October17
By: Nat on October 17, 2010

There are adds being placed on Craigslist for oil clean up, individuals who have been through the process are posting, saying that it is all  fraudulent.  Somehow contractors put the word out they are hiring county workers for oil clean up.  The contractors have you come in,  fill out an application,  then put you on a stand by list while getting paid by Bp for your application information. What is going on?   Why say you are hiring if in fact you are not putting the applicants to work?   How is compensation possible for these contractors?   How is someones personal  information being used for a contractors wages?  Hundreds of workers locally were let go, red listed Aug 19th, p2s workers were let go on August 23rd.

P2s hired local county people  from the get go, after July 26, everywhere you went whether it was the unemployment office or contractors ,  it was a requirement that you had to  be a local resident of the county. There are all these stipulations put in place for workers when none of it is being adhered to.   Who do the contractors answer to, we want full disclosure from them.  They get the contracts and then  30% of the workers are local.  Why is this allowed? Dan Thomas from Wear TV did story on, Local Oil Clean Up Crews Are Not 100% Local, this video along with others, can be found  in the video listing on this link. All Local information reported regarding oil status.

I can only imagine the fiasco going on in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and other affected states.  If you are a worker or someone that would like to share your experience, I would love to hear from you.
