Bonuses Were Substantially Greater Than The Banks' Net Income

NY AG: Banks Paid Bonuses That Were Substantially Greater Than The Banks' Net Income

The report says that combined, these three firms earned $9.6 billion, paid bonuses of nearly $18 billion, and received TARP taxpayer funds worth $45 billion. Why did this happen? Because, according to Cuomo, when times were good the bankers rewarded themselves based on performance. When the economy started to sour - they decoupled the bonus structure from reality and kept rewarding themselves.

Pay attention to your pension because you may lose it

The drive to dismantle the welfare state has a new target. Governments have already gutted unemployment insurance and social assistance. Out-of-date labour laws make it tough to organize unions in the new, decentralized, service-based economy. Now, thanks in large part to the dynamics of the recession, pensions are under attack.

Banking Bandits Get Their Reward

thenation.com - By now everybody must know that the top banking executives responsible for our economic meltdown have no shame. Otherwise they would not have dared give themselves such hefty bonuses as a deeply perverse reward for actions that caused millions of Americans to lose their jobs and homes. But that also speaks volumes about the inefficiency of a system of rewards that has nothing to do with performance.

Mousavi says trial confessions 'forced by torture'

Iranians shocked at TV 'confessions'

The images shocked many Iranians. Senior politicians, some of whom only recently held high office, paraded on television and forced to "confess" their role in what the regime has called a "velvet coup".

How many civilian deaths are acceptable?

The ghosts have returned in Afghanistan and Pakistan. As evidence, one can note the persistent pattern in which villagers, elders, and the Afghan and Pakistan governments cite high mortality figures, while the Americans engage in delay, denial, investigations of their own, and finally declare that the civilian casualties are far fewer than initially claimed.

So Much for the Promised Land

By Chris Hedges

Elite African-American figures, Baker argues, long ago placed personal gain and career advancement over the interests of the black majority. They espouse positions that are palatable to a white audience, positions which ignore the radicalism and structural critiques of inequality by W.E.B. Du Bois, Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X. And in a time when, as the poet Yusef Komunyakaa has said, "the cell block has replaced the auction block," they do not express the rage, frustration and despair of the black underclass.

A Day of Reckoning for Bush's 'Torture' Lawyers

Under even the most dire conditions, there is a gold standard when it comes to applying the rule of law. It was set 65 years ago by a former attorney general of the United States. At issue today is whether the current attorney general will uphold that standard.

Torturing Children: Bush's Legacy and Democracy's Failure

Henry A. Giroux, Truthout: "Nowhere is there a more disturbing, if not horrifying, example of the relationship between a culture of cruelty and the politics of irresponsibility than in the resounding silence that surrounds the torture of children under the presidency of George W. Bush - and the equal moral and political failure of the Obama administration to address and rectify the conditions that made it possible. But if we are to draw out the dark and hidden parameters of such crimes, they must be made visible so men and women can once again refuse to orphan the law, justice, and morality."

President Carter: Many Children Were Tortured Under Bush

Ralph Lopez, Thepeoplesvoice.org: "While Congress says it is gearing up to investigate what is old news, that CIA and Special Ops forces are killing al-Qaeda leaders, a decision of far different gravity is being contemplated by Attorney General Eric Holder. The new insistence of Congress on its oversight role, conspicuously absent throughout eight years of Bush, is suddenly rearing its head in the form of questioning a policy which has been in place with no controversy for years. The US has been hunting and killing al-Qaeda leaders outside of official war zones since 2004, when The New York Times reported that Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld had signed an order authorizing Special Forces to kill al-Qaeda where they found them."

“Culturally sensitive” imperialism

AntiWar.Com
by Justin Raimondo

08/03/09

In Britain, they’re getting antsy about Obama’s war — the ‘Af-Pak war, that is. Without the poodle Tony Blair to cover for us, Britain’s ruling Labor Party — decisively smacked down in the recent elections to the European parliament — is grumbling about being stampeded by the United States into fighting another unpopular war. The House of Commons Foreign Affairs committee is complaining that the joint U.S.-NATO mission in Afghanistan is degenerating into a strategic disaster — or, as they put it, has become ‘considerably more difficult than might otherwise have been the case’ — and it’s all our fault. That may very well be true, but one has to ask: faced with an essentially impossible task like subduing the Afghans, under what circumstances would the effort have been any less difficult? Well, the Brits have a few suggestions to make...

US to Seek More British Troops for Afghanistan

Patrick Wintour and Richard Norton Taylor, The Guardian UK: "Britain will come under fresh pressure to send more troops to Afghanistan this month when General Stanley McChrystal, the Nato commander in the country, tells President Barack Obama that a further troop surge by the military alliance is necessary."

Man takes on council over tower

By RHONDA MARKBY - The Timaru Herald

A Timaru man unhappy about a cellphone tower being installed near his home is taking the Timaru District Council to the Environment Court.

At a hearing in August, Bruce Spiers will ask the court to rule that the district council incorrectly interpreted its own district plan when it allowed a cellphone tower to be installed in a residential area.

A 10-metre pole and equipment cabinet was installed on the grass median of Craigie Avenue early last year without public consultation.

Mr Spiers can see the tower from his kitchen window. He approached the council at the time it was installed but with no success.

He is now asking the Environment Court for a declaration relating to cellphone sites in all of the Timaru District's residential zones.
