Key and Obama "play" golf - the rich and powerful continue
to “play” and plot, whilst the poor and powerless
continue to struggle on…

Oh, middle classes throughout the world, if only you raised
your heads from reality TV programming and your penchant for
non-stop shopping, long enough to look around you –
you’d be aghast at what our society has become…

Meanwhile, pressure must be applied to Labour to throw out
the TPPA should it be signed. This document cannot be
allowed to stand.

Otherwise the New Right; National; et al; will keep doing
these things each time they become government.
Neo-liberation by incremental, little steps.

Neo-liberalism cannot be rolled back, as new Labour leader
Cunliffe states, unless these things are undone at every
opportunity.

Labour must clearly state it’s position on this problem.

US President Obama stated today,

“Let’s understand what the precipitating event here that’s causing the current crisis and that was an ever-escalating number of missiles that were landing not just in Israeli territory but in areas that are populated, and there’s no country on Earth that would tolerate missiles raining down on its citizens from outside its borders.”

Really?

I wonder how Pakistan feels about US drone missiles raining down on it’s citizens, from outside it’s borders?

Obama – you are no better than Mitt Romney or John Key.

America’s Decade of Disaster – Michael Hirsh

3 September 2011 Leave a comment

This article, published in the American “National Journal”, is a must-read as to where the US has gone wrong – and by implication – has sucked New Zealand into their mistakes.

Pay close attention to the writers’ commenys on tax cuts and spending, as it applies to us, as well. This is possibly one of the most important and insightful commentaries yet to be written. It will grip you…

“The events of Sept. 11 have ultimately left us, 10 years later, with an economy and a strategic stature that no longer seem terribly awesome. America is still the sole superpower, but our invincible military is bogged down in two wasting wars, and poorly armed insurgents seem not to fear us. The rest of the world, beginning with China and Japan, now underwrites our vast indebtedness with barely concealed impatience. We are a nation downgraded by Wall Street, disrespected abroad, and defied even now by al-Qaida, whose leader was killed only recently after spending most of the decade taunting Washington. How did this happen?” – Read further
