Big Dan's Big News May 10, 2008

Play "Where's Waldo" and look for key phrases in the White House's corporate media megaphone. Oh! Here's one! "Iranian Backed"! The same corporate media that was in bed (embed) with the White House to spread lies helping to get us into the Iraq War is now doing it for an Iran War!

BEIRUT, LEBANON — Unchallenged by Lebanon's army, the Iranian-backed Hezbollah routed Sunnis loyal to the U.S.-allied government and seized control of large swaths of Beirut's Muslim sector Friday in a telling demonstration of its military prowess.

II. Bush's GOP Legacy: A Third World America

As the US faces a very real prospect of utter collapse where millions may be may be made jobless and homeless, the GOP drags out a tired old lie that goes like this: 'Be happy! Recession is goooood for you!' If that were true, millions would be trying to move to a third world country instead of trying to get out of one. Don't worry about it; the third world is coming to you! Millions have yet to recover from Ronald Reagan's 'recession' of some two years following an improvident tax cut which benefited only the nation's privileged elite. What Reagan failed to achieve was left to Bush Jr to polish off.

The trend began in 1982 resumed shortly after Bush's first tax cut. October 2003 figures from the US Census Bureau make stark reading: (click here to continue…)
