Obama to America: I am not accountable

Hawaii Reporter
by Christopher Adamo

06/01/10

What seemed at first to be a major gaffe by Attorney General Eric Holder has since manifested itself as yet another flagrant pronouncement from the executive branch that it no longer considers itself answerable to the American people on any issue. Rather, it operates from a belief in its absolute moral and philosophical superiority, and asserts virtually unchecked power as a result...

The euphemisms of war

Classically Liberal
by CLS

06/01/10

I grabbed a copy of the local newspaper to read while having lunch. It was just the community rag, nothing special. I opened it to find photograph after photograph of young men who had died in the undeclared wars of George W. Bush. Their young faces broke my heart, most were barely men, perhaps just boys when they enlisted. Today their lives are gone, snuffed out, for a blundering boob of a president who wanted, God know’s what, by rushing into a war based on faulty evidence. I keep seeing the bumper stickers, and hearing the slogans, that are the euphemisms of war. ‘We defend America.’ ‘He died for his country.’ ‘They are fighting for us.’ ‘They are protecting America.’ How much easier it is to endow this senselessness with a mantle of higher goals and laudable values...

Obama plays the credit card

The American Spectator
by Jay D. Homnick

The late President Harry S. Truman was famous for keeping a small plaque on his desk reading ‘The Buck Stops Here.’ … Ronald Reagan, self-consciously playing off Truman, put a conspicuous plaque on his desk as well. It said: ‘There is no limit to what you can accomplish if you don’t care who gets the credit.’ Judging by Barack Obama’s press conference remarks about the Louisiana oil spill, he has fashioned the obverse slogan: ‘There is no limit to the credit you can get if you don’t care who did the accomplishing’...

Government Impotence and Corporate Rule

Jim Hightower, Truthout: "Many news reports about the Gulf oil catastrophe refer to it as a 'spill.' Wrong. A spill is a minor 'oops' - one accidentally spills milks, for example, and from childhood, we're taught the old aphorism: 'Don't cry over spilt milk.' What's in the Gulf isn't milk and it wasn't spilt. The explosion of BP's Deepwater Horizon well was the inevitable result of deliberate decisions made by avaricious corporate executives, laissez faire politicians and obsequious regulators."

Six Things to Do About the BP Gulf Disaster

Sarah van Gelder, YES! Magazine: "Instead of sitting helplessly on the sidelines, here are six things every American can do. BP has failed repeatedly to stop the gushing oil disaster in the Gulf. It's trying again - using a technique that risks making matters worse - and saying that there may be no repair until August, when it finishes drilling relief wells."

Safety Violations and Fines Did Not Deter BP and Massey Disasters

Josh Frank, Truthout: "When natural resource industry giants get hit with worker safety and environmental violations, they open their checkbook, pay a fine and go on operating as per usual. At least that's the lesson learned from the recent Massey Energy deadly mine explosion and British Petroleum's (BP) massive oil spill. Both companies have paid millions in fines in recent years, yet, have gone on with their business as usual."
