More mobile antennas in Safi square

‘They’re really ugly, but we can’t do anything’ – mayor Peter Paul Busuttil

James Debono

Safi mayor Peter Paul Busuttil has said he can’t do anything about three mobile phone antennas that have been installed on rooftops in the locality’s quaint village square, “even if they are really ugly”.

The antennas have been installed on the band club’s roof, the parish priest’s residence and on a private home inside the village core.

“They have to be installed somewhere but they are really ugly and have ruined the character of the square,” Busuttil told MaltaToday.

Fannie Mae's Overpaid Board: Can President Obama Turn Words Into Action?

Dean Baker, Truthout: "Last week, President Obama called it 'shameful' that the bank executives, who took taxpayer money through the bailout last fall, paid themselves large bonuses. While the vast majority of the public agrees with this view, there is little that President Obama can directly do about these bonuses at this point. However, with more bailout money on the way (probably much more), President Obama will be in a position to seriously constrain executive compensation in the future at the banks that are subsisting on government largess."

Weight of Combat Gear Is Taking Toll

Ann Scott Tyson, The Washington Post: "Carrying heavy combat loads is taking a quiet but serious toll on troops deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan, contributing to injuries that are sidelining them in growing numbers, according to senior military and defense officials."

Richest Got Even Richer

bloomberg.com — The average tax rate paid by the richest 400 Americans fell by a third to 17.2 percent through the first six years of the Bush administration and their average income doubled to $263.3 million, new IRS data show. The 17.2 percent tax rate in 2006 was the lowest since the IRS began tracking the 400 largest taxpayers in 1992, although the richest 400 Americans paid more tax on an inflation-adjusted basis than any year since 2000. The drop from 2001's tax rate of 22.9 percent was due largely to ex-President George W. Bush's push to cut tax rates on most capital gains to 15 percent in 2003.

Swedish professor joins Kingswinford anti-mobile phone mast protesters

Feb 3 2009 by Steve Bradley, Birmingham Mail

ANXIOUS Kingswinford campaigners fighting to remove mobile phone masts from near their homes have taken their battle to Europe.

Protesters marched to the High Acres Base Station with MEP Liz Lynne, who pledged to do all she could to see the equipment moved from the top of a former water tower at the summit of a hill.

Also joining them, all the way from Stockholm, was Professor Olle Johansson, who made a special visit from the Karolinska Institute in the Swedish capital, where he has established himself as one of the world’s leading authorities on electro-magnetic radiation.

Banks face lending dilemma

Tennessean

02/01/09

Politicians and banks are under an increasing amount of pressure to increase lending, as critics complain the $700 billion financial rescue plan has done little to help borrowers so far. Several big banks in the Nashville market such as Regions Financial Corp., Bank of America and the parent company of First Tennessee Bank reduced their overall loan portfolios between the third and fourth quarters of 2008 amid a worsening economy, despite receiving billions of dollars from the U.S. Treasury to fight the credit crunch...

Washington logic

Foundation for Economic Education
by Sheldon Richman

01/30/09

Let me see if I have this straight. The U.S. government is going to borrow $819-$??? billion, largely from the Chinese (if they’ll lend it, which they may not) and put that money into people’s pockets in a hundred different ways, from paying workers for filling potholes, to extending unemployment benefits, to expanding Medicare, to weatherizing buildings, to enlarging the National Endowment for the Arts, and on and on and on. This is going to make us all richer. What would we do without those folks in Washington, D.C.?

Obama’s new bank giveaway

CounterPunch
by Michael Hudson

01/31/09

The government’s solution, placed in its hands by the financial lobbyists, is to bail out the bankers and Wall Street while leaving the ‘real’ economy even more highly indebted. Families, businesses and government are having to spend more wage income, profits and tax revenues on debt service instead of buying goods and services. So why is the solution to this debt overhead held to be yet MORE debt? Is there not something crazy here?

The ugly truth

CounterPunch
by Dave Lindorff

02/01/09

America, and individual Americans, have been living profligately for years in an unreal economy, propped up by easy credit which inflated the value of real estate to incredible levels, and which led people to spend way beyond their means. Ordinary middle-class working people have been encouraged to buy obscenely oversized homes at 5% down, or even no down payment. They have been lured into buying cars the size of trucks, one for each driving-aged member of the family (in our town, so many high school kids drive to school that the school ran out of parking spaces and the yellow school buses, largely empty on their runs, are referred to by the students as the ’shame train,’ an embarrassment to be seen riding). They’ve installed individual back-yard swimming pools, unwilling to share the water with their neighbors in community pools. Boring faux ethnic restaurant franchises of all kinds have befouled the landscape, filling up with families too stressed out to cook, and willing to endure over-salted, over-priced and tasteless cuisine and tacky plastic decor night after night. Now this is all crashing down. … Eventually, the economic slide will hit bottom and begin its slow climb back, as all recessions do, but there will be no return to the days of $500,000 McMansion developments, three-car garages and a new car every two or three years for both parents plus a car for each highschooler...

Afghans threaten troops over civilian deaths

MSNBC

01/31/09

An angry Afghan man with a thick black beard ranted wildly at the U.S. officials, shouting about how their overnight raid had killed 16 civilians in his village. An Afghan elder cried out in grief that his son and four grandsons were among the dead. One after another, a long line of government officials, villagers and community leaders told American military officials at the Laghman governor’s compound that Afghan soldiers must be allowed to take part in such raids. Several predicted increased violence against U.S. forces if more nighttime operations take place...

Watchdog critiques wartime spending

Military and civilian agencies must do a better job of coordinating postwar reconstruction projects, particularly as the U.S. focus shifts from Iraq to Afghanistan, a government watchdog plans to tell a congressional commission today. Stuart Bowen, the special inspector general for Iraq reconstruction, said that’s one of the key lessons to be learned from the wasteful mistakes made during the rebuilding of Iraq...
