Germany's #1 Sinus Product (NOT SPAM)

A friend of mine just told me that Sinupret helped his sinuses a lot. We live in an area that's terrible for allergies and sinuses. I had never heard of this product before tonight so I'm just passing this on in case you suffer with sinus problems. I have no relation to this product or company.

Our Government is 'hiding' trillions in debt!

The federal government recorded a $1.3 trillion loss last year — far more than the official $248 billion deficit — when corporate-style "accounting standards" are used. One reason they like to use "supplemental" appropriation bills is because they "don't count" toward the deficit. The entire Iraq war has been funded with supplementals.

Chagos Natives Win Court Ruling to Return Home

(From Democracy Now!'s headlines for 5/27/07)
...natives of the Chagos Islands in the Indian ocean have won a new legal victory in their long-term battle to return home. British forces expelled the islanders 40 years ago to make way for a US military base at the archipelago’s largest island, Diego Garcia. The base has been used to launch bombing missions on Iraq and Afghanistan. This week a British court criticized the British government’s “abuse of power” and ruled Chagos inhabitants should be allowed to return to every island except Diego Garcia. The U.S. has long campaigned to deny inhabitants the right to return to any of the sixty-five islands.

Me: Don't you just love how we abuse and bully those who are weaker than us? This is OUTRAGEOUS and you will never hear about it on the news. I'm thrilled that these people finally got some measure of justice.

Gen. Batiste: Pro-War, Anti-Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld - Great Interview! (Video)

In a long interview with veteran journalist Amy Goodman, Batiste bluntly states his views. Guantanamo: shut it down, against American values. Iraq War: strategy fundamentally flawed then & now. Torture: it happened but we got better info when we didn't torture. He's a life-long Republican from a military family who just had to "speak out." Kudos!

Will US Ban Smoking Indoors? How About Smoking While Driving?

It's probably inevitable. Other countries have already done so and many states already have or soon will. It always angers me when smokers throw their cigarettes out the car window or toss them casually on the ground where they'll end up in our streams and rivers, and on our beaches. Then there's the fire hazard too. THE WORLD IS NOT YOUR ASHTRAY!

CIA Lies, Sends Agent To Jail Over Selling 40,000 Lbs of C-4 to Lybia

The DOJ knew at the time the CIA was lying and did nothing about it. Now he's out, and there's nothing he can do to hold those responsible for making him the fall guy. Luckily for the CIA, the C-4 was not used in the Lockerbie bombing.. or at least that's what we're told.

White House Opposes Extra Half Percent Pay Increase for Troops

Let's see if I have this straight. It's okay to lavish multi-billion dollar no bid contracts on Halliburton and other corporations, but an extra $10 a month for the men and women whose lives are bring ruined or even lost for this disastrous war.... that's not "necessary." HOW CAN 28% OF AMERICANS STILL SUPPORT THESE PEOPLE!! When will they wake up!

Hagel:"Nonsense" That We Have to Fight'em Here If We Don't Fight'em There

Can't believe I'm blogging a Robert Novak column but I liked some of what Hagel has to say about the Iraq Occupation. He also says it's chaos now, so leaving can't make it worse by leaving and that "scaring the American people into this blind alley is dangerous." I would consider Hagel for president even though he is a Republican.
