Does Obama lack the courage of his convictions?

Submitted by Eternity on Wed, 08/19/2009 - 17:12.

Max Eternity - In this MSNBC video (found here) Arianna Huffington converses with Keith Oberman; where in a rare move, she places most of the blame for the healthcare fiasco squarely on President Obama's shoulders.  Thus far, however polite, this is some the stongest language that Huffington has used to date when critiquing Obama's policies.  Too, Huffington's choice of words might come as a bit of a surprise, because she was, through the channels of her media empire, The Huff

Dumbass America: If we like public libraries, why do we hate public health care?

Submitted by Eternity on Tue, 08/18/2009 - 11:47.

Max Eternity - It never ceases to amaze me at how Americans fail time and time again to connect the simplest dots.  How, something as simple as public healthcare can morph into a monstrosity of a conundrum.  This is something so simple a baby could figure it out.  So, case in point...very simply, ask yourself this?  What's the difference between public libraries and public health [care] insurance?  It's the exact same argument.  Hence, why our "socialist" President and the "liberal media" has not been able to articulte th

Los Angeles Times - Fish oil, rich in anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids and derived from oily fish such as tuna, salmon and mackerel -- is already recommended by the American Heart Assn. to help prevent cardiovascular disease. It has been shown to reduce blood triglyceride levels and slightly lower blood pressure, lowering the risk for heart attacks and strokes.

Perhaps a complete diet overhaul -- difficult though that may be -- would be a better strategy. The Mediterranean diet, named for the region in which it originated, has many anti-inflammatory features.

After years of decline, Cleveland aims to go green

Submitted by Eternity on Sat, 08/15/2009 - 14:26.

CNBC - Orchards and vineyards may soon spring from the blight of thousands of abandoned buildings in Cleveland, a city struggling to rise from years of decline and home foreclosures. Once a proud manufacturing powerhouse, Cleveland has lost nearly 10 percent of its population since 2000, the fastest drop of any U.S. city except for hurricane-hit New Orleans.

Remembering Gibson Guitar legend, Les Paul Gibson (age 94)

Submitted by Eternity on Thu, 08/13/2009 - 13:53.

The Huffington Post - Les Paul, who invented the solid-body electric guitar later wielded by a legion of rock 'n' roll greats, died Thursday of complications from pneumonia. He was 94.

According to Gibson Guitar, Paul died at White Plains Hospital. His family and friends were by his side.

As an inventor, Paul also helped bring about the rise of rock 'n' roll with multitrack recording, which enables artists to record different instruments at different times, sing harmony with themselves, and then carefully balance the tracks in the finished recording.

Demanding the Black President show his papers, as if he were a runaway slave

Submitted by Eternity on Wed, 08/12/2009 - 21:15.

Max Eternity - I have many criticisms of President Obama, even though I voted for him.  But let me be clear, I voted for him not because I though he was going to save us from all the doom and gloom, but because I thought he had the most integrity of all the candidates that were (by June '08) left standing.  Every president, and indeed every citizen, should be held accountable.  However, the anti-black, hateful, vicious, character assisination that we are all witnessing right now...the slanderous, unsubstantiated attacks on Obama, go way, way, way beyond the pale.

Hate, Racism & Murder...HILARIOUS!!!

Submitted by Eternity on Tue, 08/11/2009 - 13:53.
Max Eternity - Today in the Marietta Daily Journal newspaper, the cartoon seen below, along with an editorial that appears to have been channeled straight from the mind of our increasing psychotic, political has-been, Sarah Palin, comes one of the most hate-filled, racist, ignorant illustrations I have ever seen.

US admits it was deeply involved in recent Iran coup attempt

Submitted by Eternity on Mon, 08/10/2009 - 12:36. - In an interview today on CNN’s GPS with Fareed Zakaria, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said that while the US didn’t want to come out too publicly in favor of the protesters in the wake of Iran’s disputed June elections, the State Department was “doing a lot” behind the scenes to support the opposition.  The exact extent to which the US has funded, and continues to fund, Iran’s opposition will likely never be known, but in the midst of the June ralli

Krishna's Gone

Submitted by Eternity on Fri, 08/07/2009 - 17:00.

the light is gone.
my beloved Krishna has returned;
not to me, but to his heavenly home.

who knew the universe and the stars could retreat at such a rapid pace.  who paused to think that brilliance could ever come to an end.  and how does it reason to mourn the loss of someone you've felt all your life; being someone you never knew--never met--never touched.

this is the magic and wonder of a legend;
marvelous splendor, leaving a lasting impression
in the blink of an eye, for all of eternity.

Elitism, Obama, White Supremacy and the Ass-Kissing Courtiers

Submitted by Eternity on Mon, 08/03/2009 - 09:53.

Truthdig - Courtiers come in different colors in America but their function is the same. They are hedonists of power...invited into the inner circles of the elite, including the White House and Harvard University, as long as they faithfully serve the system. They are offered comfort and privilege, but they pay with their souls.

Supporting President Obama Does Not Mean Letting Him Off the Hook

Submitted by Eternity on Fri, 07/31/2009 - 10:41.

Max Eternity - I voted for Obama, and I stand by my decision.  However since his election, the list of dissappointments continues to grow; threatening the balance sheet of pros and cons.  From the horrendous, multi-trillion dollar giveaway to the already rich and wealthy, Wall Street elites, to health care rights for all and economic empowerment to the people, the President has strayed far and wide from many of his campaign commitments.  In the accompanying video below, Naomi Wolf comments on the shameful disappointments of President Obama.

The catastrophic horror of obesity, a challenge we must face now!

Submitted by Eternity on Mon, 07/27/2009 - 16:00.

The Raw Story - US obesity rates grew 37 percent between 1998 and 2006, pushing obesity-related spending up another 40 billion dollars a year, according to the study published by Health Affairs. "The medical costs attributable to obesity are almost entirely a result of costs generated from treating the diseases that obesity promotes," said lead author Eric Finkelstein, who heads RTI International's Public Health Economic Program. "Obesity will continue to impose a significant burden on the healthcare system as long as obesity prevalence remains high."
