Fifteen 9/11'S a year, more than one 9/11 per month: Putting things in perspective, because the corporate owned mainstream media won't do it. What do they want you to be afraid of: ZERO people dying on a plane or 45,000 Americans dying per year due to lack of health insurance?

Some stats to put things in perspective, pointed out by Brad Blog:

In 2009, 45,000 Americans died due to lack of health insurance according to a recent Harvard study.

Getting hit by lightning vs. getting killed on a plane due to terrorism: The odds of being on given departure which is the subject of a terrorist incident have been 1 in 10,408,947 over the past decade. By contrast, the odds of being struck by lightning in a given year are about 1 in 500,000. This means that you could board 20 flights per year and still be less likely to be the subject of an attempted terrorist attack than to be struck by lightning.

Number of U.S. and coalition deaths in Iraq 2003 to present --- 4689

Number of U.S. and coalition deaths in Afghanistan 2001 to present --- 1555

Combined 8 year total --- 6,244

Number of Americans who die each year simply because they can't afford health insurance --- 45,000. Extrapolated over 8 years --- 360,000

Number of Iraqi deaths through Jan. 2008 --- One million.

3,000+ days into the war and trillions of dollars later: 8 Americans die in suicide blast in Afghanistan

So, we're freaking out about an idiot who didn't blow off a bomb on an airplane and killed zero people. The CIA knew about this guy way ahead of time. The corporate owned media who's interest is not OUR interests, reports 100x more on ZERO people killed on a plane vs. 45,000 Americans dying every year due to not having health insurance. That's FIFTEEN 9/11's a year! 45,000 Americans dying each year is like having MORE THAN ONE 9/11 A MONTH! There's elements within our government, or around our government (CIA), that are trumping up terrorism and even in on it or letting it happen, to take away more of our liberties. And the corporate owned media is also in on it. The same people are running that, too. Wake up! And they're calling it the "liberal media" to throw you off.

Ray McGovern | Are Presidents Afraid of the CIA?

plunger: What the kid's father had no way of knowing, was that it was the CIA itself who had recruited his son and prepared him for the failed bombing attempt. The father goes to the Embassy and meets with a spook who already knows that the CIA has targeted his son as a tool. They dutifully take down all the information, as if learning of it for the first time, and insist that the father not speak to anyone else about this. The CIA laughs, and proceeds with its alleged Al Qaeda operation. Does it get any more obvious?

You’ve heard by now the Haskell story right? In case you haven’t let’s start there. Kurt Haskell is an attorney. He and his wife were in Amsterdam that day after a safari and Kurt witnessed the underwear bomber (Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab) before the flight being aided by what Haskell described to be an older Indian gentleman who was well dressed.

Was the “sharp dressed man” who assisted the young Nigerian to board the Detroit-bound aircraft WITHOUT A PASSPORT a CIA operative? Why is the MSM not discussing what the rest of the world is discussing about one or two apparent “accomplices?”

Go to Google News and search "sharp dressed"

Sharp dressed man and flight 253: what was left out of the story?

Gee! Just like 9/11!

How does a massive, costly security apparatus fail to stop a known terrorism threat from boarding an airplane and wrecking devastation? Answer: when it's on purpose!!!

Ron Paul suggests ‘agenda’ to expand terror war, attack American liberty

Israel and Rupert Murdoch's media empire:

Israel just FAKED the Iranian nuke document, and we were warned well in advance of this plane bomber by his father and nothing was done. Anyone think something funny is going on here? Does anyone else think the corporate owned media is pushing more wars against Arab countries (Iran and Yemen) and publicizing this failed bomber way out of whack in which ZERO people died vs. 45,000 Americans per year die due to lack of health insurance? And they are publicizing this failed bomber way out of whack to take away more liberties from us? You know: sacrifice liberties for safety? The media has you more scared of the ZERO people who died in the plane vs. FIFTEEN 9/11's per year of Americans dying with no health insurance!!! WHO is the company pimping full body scanners at airports??? Are the media, Israel, and our government just going to keep faking things until one slips by and we attack Iran and Yemen? How many times does this have to happen?

WASHINGTON, Dec 28 (IPS) - U.S. intelligence has concluded that the document published recently by the Times of London, which purportedly describes an Iranian plan to do experiments on what the newspaper described as a "neutron initiator" for an atomic weapon, is a fabrication, according to a former Central Intelligence Agency official.

Philip Giraldi, who was a CIA counterterrorism official from 1976 to 1992, told IPS that intelligence sources say that the United States had nothing to do with forging the document, and that Israel is the primary suspect. The sources do not rule out a British role in the fabrication, however.

The Times of London story published Dec. 14 did not identify the source of the document. But it quoted "an Asian intelligence source" - a term some news media have used for Israeli intelligence officials - as confirming that his government believes Iran was working on a neutron initiator as recently as 2007.

The story of the purported Iranian document prompted a new round of expressions of U.S. and European support for tougher sanctions against Iran and reminders of Israel's threats to attack Iranian nuclear programme targets if diplomacy fails.

U.S. news media reporting has left the impression that U.S. intelligence analysts have not made up their mind about the document's authenticity, although it has been widely reported that they have now had a full year to assess the issue.

Giraldi's intelligence sources did not reveal all the reasons that led analysts to conclude that the purported Iran document had been fabricated by a foreign intelligence agency. But their suspicions of fraud were prompted in part by the source of the story, according to Giraldi.

"The Rupert Murdoch chain has been used extensively to publish false intelligence from the Israelis and occasionally from the British government," Giraldi said.

Israel fabricated recent Iran "nuke document".

Chris Floyd and Glenn Greenwald are not part of the corporate owned mainstream media, what shills like Rush Limbaugh call the "liberal media". They're not in the mainstream media because they're liberals, and the mainstream media isn't liberal. I know I keep repeating this: corporations aren't liberal, corporations OWN the mainstream media (the liberal media, it's called), the mainstream media isn't liberal but you're supposed to think it is, so you don't know who the real liberals are. The real liberals aren't in what is called the "liberal media". You see, if you believe that "liberal" is what Rush Limbaugh says it is, then you don't really know what "liberal" is. That's why they do this. Remember this: real liberals are ignored by the mainstream media. Real liberals don't call themselves "liberal". The mainstream and rightwing media then define a bunch of non-liberals as "liberals", like the Democrats for instance. Real conservatives are ignored by the mainstream media, too, and the mainstream and rightwing media (both controlled and owned by corporations) define a bunch of non-conservatives as "conservative". Real patriots don't call themselves "patriots", they don't dress in red, white, and blue, and wave flags, and they don't publish books with red, white and blue backgrounds.

Chris Floyd: Wow, that didn't take long at all. Scant days after the American war machine took the cloaking device off its direct military involvement in Yemen, we have an alleged attempted terrorist attack by an alleged attempted terrorist who, just scant hours after his capture, has allegedly confessed to getting his alleged attempted terrorist material from ... wait for it ... Yemen!

Chris Floyd: You want to stop the "radicalization" of young Muslims? It's simple: stop killing innocent Muslims in wars of domination all over the world. Stop running "covert ops" in every nation of the world -- murders, kidnappings, corruption and deception that make a howling mockery of the very "civilized values" these wars and ops purport to defend.

Glenn Greenwald: Each time the U.S. bombs a new location in the Muslim world, the same pattern emerges. First, officials from the U.S. or allied governments run to their favorite media outlet to claim -- anonymously -- that some big, bad, notorious, "top" Al Qaeda leader "may have been" or "likely was" killed in the strike, and this constitutes a "stinging" or "devastating" blow against the Terrorist group. These compliant media outlets then sensationalistically trumpet that claim as the dominant theme of their "reporting" on the attack, drowning out every other issue.

Glenn Greenwald: As a result, and by design, there is never any debate or discussion over the propriety or wisdom of these strikes.

Glenn Greenwald: In the wake of the latest failed terrorist attack on Northwest Airlines, one can smell the excitement in the air -- that all-too-familiar, giddy, bipartisan climate that emerges in American media discourse whenever there's a new country we get to learn about so that we can explain why we're morally and strategically justified in bombing it some more. "Yemen" is suddenly on every Serious Person's lips.

“I stood up and walked a couple feet ahead to get a closer look, and that's when I saw the flames,” said Haskell, who sat about seven rows behind Mutallab. “It started to spread pretty quickly. It went up the wall, all the way to ceiling.”

1. If they ever come up with a swashbuckling School, I think one of the courses should be Laughing, Then Jumping Off Something.
2. When you're riding in a time machine way far into the future, don't stick your elbow out the window, or it'll turn into a fossil.
3. It takes a big man to cry, but it takes a bigger man to laugh at that man.
4. At first I thought, if I were Superman, a perfect secret identity would be "Clark Kent, Dentist," because you could save money on tooth X-rays. But then I thought, if a patient said, "How's my back tooth?" and you just looked at it with your X-ray vision and said, "Oh it's okay," then the patient would probably say, "Aren't you going to take an X-ray, stupid?" and you'd say, "Aw **** you, get outta here," and then he probably wouldn't even pay his bill.
5. One thing kids like is to be tricked. For instance, I was going to take my little nephew to Disneyland, but instead I drove him to an old burned-out warehouse. "Oh, no," I said. "Disneyland burned down." He cried and cried, but I think that deep down, he thought it was a pretty good joke. I started to drive over to the real Disneyland, but it was getting pretty late.
6. A good way to threaten somebody is to light a stick of dynamite. Then you call the guy and hold the burning fuse up to the phone. "Hear that?" you say. "That's dynamite, baby."
7. Why do people in ship mutinies always ask for "better treatment"? I'd ask for a pinball machine, because with all that rocking back and forth you'd probably be able to get a lot of free games.
8. I'd like to be buried Indian-style, where they put you up on a high rack, above the ground. That way, you could get hit by meteorites and not even feel it.
9. If I lived back in the wild west days, instead of carrying a six-gun in my holster, I'd carry a soldering iron. That way, if some smart-aleck cowboy said something like "Hey, look. He's carrying a soldering iron!" and started laughing, and everybody else started laughing, I could just say, "That's right, it's a soldering iron. The soldering iron of justice." Then everybody would get real quiet and ashamed, because they had made fun of the soldering iron of justice, and I could probably hit them up for a free drink.
10. I bet when the neanderthal kids would make a snowman, someone would always end up saying, "Don't forget the thick, heavy brows." Then they would all get embarrassed because they remembered they had the big hunky brows too, and they'd get mad and eat the snowman.

RT - Russia Today television...YEP! I guess you have to watch Russian television to see a U.S. congressman speak out against these insane wars! Republican Congressman Dana Rohrabacher has to tell it like it is...on Russian television. The corporate owned U.S. media (the false liberal media) has too much conflict to show anti-war congressmen because other arms of their corporations are making too much profit off the wars. This is why I chucked the "liberal media" a long time ago. It's not liberal, it's a sham. Corporations own the media and since when are corporations liberal?

Reel Bad Arabs

This groundbreaking documentary dissects a slanderous aspect of cinematic history that has run virtually unchallenged from the earliest days of silent film to today's biggest Hollywood blockbusters. Featuring acclaimed author Dr. Jack Shaheen, the film explores a long line of degrading images of Arabs - from Bedouin bandits and submissive maidens to sinister sheikhs and gun-wielding "terrorists" - along the way offering devastating insights into the origin of these stereotypical images, their development at key points in US history, and why they matter so much today.

More manufactured lies and fake outrage from the right...daily, hourly...on the media they own and are on all the time, you know, the media they claim is liberal and they don't have a voice in.  Obama's Christmas ornament of Mao Zedong (Chairman Mao) means Obama is blatantly flaunting that he is a Communist. The Great Christmas Ornament Scandal. If Obama was leading a secret plot to make America Communist, the first thing he'd do is hang up Communist Christmas ornaments. Let's see, there was: "pallin' around with terrorists", Reverend Wright, Bill Ayers, Joe the Plumber, Death Panels, Obama isn't an American citizen, "kill your Grandma", and on and on and on, one manufactured contrived fake outrage after another by the rightwing media...all FAKE, like the Christmas ornament scandal. All for rightwing idiots to digest and believe and repeat, like a Ron Poppeil infomercial rotting your brain with propaganda and disinformation; a blatant insult to any intelligent person. It's one thing to have different philosophical opinions, it's another thing to just make up ridiculous shit that has nothing to do with debates of philosophical differences. The question is: do you believe this nonsense or do you knowingly repeat lies just because the liars are "you're guys"? I say, every human being will eventually get sick of non-stop lies, even if they're "your guys" lying. I like Michael Moore. If he just started saying things about his enemies like: "He is going to kill your Grandma" or "He isn't a citizen", I would really be insulted, thinking Michael Moore must think I'm an idiot and he can make up any shit he wants and I'll believe it. How can you believe that there's one preposterous, outrageous blockbuster thing daily about the rightwing's enemies? That's childish to believe that can be possible. You really would have to start questioning your own maturity and intelligence. So, if Obama isn't a Communist, he's killing your grandma. If he's not killing your grandma, he's not an American citizen. If he's not an American citizen, he's "pallin' around with terrorists". Now you know this cannot be possible that every day there's some HUGE blockbuster thing about Obama you didn't know about. At least let's stick to real issues, like Obama is continuing Bush's Wars of Lies or Obama is not covering all Americans with health care...not: "Obama is killing your grandma". Grow the fuck up, would you please? If your Grandma is one of the tens of millions of Americans who do not have health care coverage and she dies because of it, well then, actually, Obama did kill her. And so did the entire U.S. congress.

FAKER! Michele Bachman is a Welfare Queen, not a TeaBagger!

She's pretending to be a "crazy rightwing Evangelical conservative" and she's sold the teabaggers down the road. She should get an academy award for her performance. She is for handouts for herself and the rich, and against "handouts" for the middleclass and poor. She is nothing but an actress who is faking being a religious conservative, and has played the teabaggers like a fiddle for her own gain. She's every bit as FAKE as the quitter-turned-talk-show-circuit-queen Sarah Palin.

Data compiled from federal records by Environmental Working Group, a nonprofit watchdog that tracks the recipients of agricultural subsidies in the United States, shows that Bachmann has an inner Marxist that is perfectly at ease with profiting from taxpayer largesse. According to the organization’s records, Bachmann’s family farm received $251,973 in federal subsidies between 1995 and 2006. The farm had been managed by Bachmann’s recently deceased father-in-law and took in roughly $20,000 in 2006 and $28,000 in 2005, with the bulk of the subsidies going to dairy and corn. Both dairy and corn are heavily subsidized—or “socialized”—businesses in America (in 2005 alone, Washington spent $4.8 billion propping up corn prices) and are subject to strict government price controls. These subsidies are at the heart of America’s bizarre planned agricultural economy and as far away from Michele Bachmann’s free-market dream world as Cuba’s free medical system. If American farms such as hers were forced to compete in the global free market, they would collapse.

Stay tuned for video 2, where GOD betrays Michele Bachmann & the Republicans:

Rules of arguing, fallacious arguments, arguing techniques - there are many, here's ONE:

Description of Ad Hominem

Translated from Latin to English, "Ad Hominem" means "against the man" or "against the person."

An Ad Hominem is a general category of fallacies in which a claim or argument is rejected on the basis of some irrelevant fact about the author of or the person presenting the claim or argument. Typically, this fallacy involves two steps.

- First, an attack against the character of person making the claim, her circumstances, or her actions is made (or the character, circumstances, or actions of the person reporting the claim).

- Second, this attack is taken to be evidence against the claim or argument the person in question is making (or presenting). This type of "argument" has the following form:

1. Person A makes claim X.
2. Person B makes an attack on person A.
3. Therefore A's claim is false.

The reason why an Ad Hominem (of any kind) is a fallacy is that the character, circumstances, or actions of a person do not (in most cases) have a bearing on the truth or falsity of the claim being made (or the quality of the argument being made).
Example of Ad Hominem

1. Bill: "I believe that abortion is morally wrong."
Dave: "Of course you would say that, you're a priest."
Bill: "What about the arguments I gave to support my position?"
Dave: "Those don't count. Like I said, you're a priest, so you have to say that abortion is wrong. Further, you are just a lackey to the Pope, so I can't believe what you say."

Outrageous comments are nothing new to the conservative media -- one might even call them a defining characteristic. The Most Outrageous Comment of the 2009 came when Fox News host Glenn Beck asserted that Obama is a "racist" who has "exposed himself as a guy" with "a deep-seated hatred for white people or the white culture," but right-wing media figures made plenty of other unhinged remarks throughout the year:

Top 10 Reasons to Kill Senate Health Care Bill

1. Forces you to pay up to 8% of your income to private insurance corporations — whether you want to or not.
2. If you refuse to buy the insurance, you’ll have to pay penalties of up to 2% of your annual income to the IRS.
3. Many will be forced to buy poor-quality insurance they can’t afford to use, with $11,900 in annual out-of-pocket expenses over and above their annual premiums.
4. Massive restriction on a woman’s right to choose, designed to trigger a challenge to Roe v. Wade in the Supreme Court.
5. Paid for by taxes on the middle class insurance plan you have right now through your employer, causing them to cut back benefits and increase co-pays.
6. Many of the taxes to pay for the bill start now, but most Americans won’t see any benefits — like an end to discrimination against those with preexisting conditions — until 2014 when the program begins.
7. Allows insurance companies to charge people who are older 300% more than others.
8. Grants monopolies to drug companies that will keep generic versions of expensive biotech drugs from ever coming to market.
9. No re-importation of prescription drugs, which would save consumers $100 billion over 10 years.
10. The cost of medical care will continue to rise, and insurance premiums for a family of four will rise an average of $1,000 a year — meaning in 10 years, your family’s insurance premium will be $10,000 more annually than it is right now.

Jane Hamsher: There is an enormous, rising tide of populism that crosses party lines in objection to the Senate bill. We opposed the bank bailouts, the AIG bonuses, the lack of transparency about the Federal Reserve, "bailout" Ben Bernanke, and the way the Democrats have used their power to sell the country's resources to secure their own personal advantage, just as the libertarians have. In fact, we've worked together with them to oppose these things. What we agree on: both parties are working against the interests of the public, the only difference is in the messaging.

Jane Hamsher: Left/Right Populist Outrage Will Defeat Senate Health Care Bill

Glenn Greenwald: If progressives always announce that they are willing to accept whatever miniscule benefits are tossed at them (on the ground that it's better than nothing) and unfailingly support Democratic initiatives (on the ground that the GOP is worse), then they will (and should) always be ignored when it comes time to negotiate; nobody takes seriously the demands of those who announce they'll go along with whatever the final outcome is.

Glenn Greenwald: The underlying divisions in the healthcare debate

Ed Kilgore: The Obama administration has chosen the strategy of deploying regulated and subsidized private sector entities to achieve progressive policy results. This approach was a hallmark of the so-called Clintonian, "New Democrat" movement, and the broader international movement sometimes referred to as "the Third Way," which often defended the use of private means for public ends.

How was an entire debate that OUGHT TO HAVE BEEN only about health CARE, turned into a debate solely about health INSURANCE – with a mandate that everyone buy it, to boot?

What everyone needs is care, when they need it.

What no one needs is insurance, provided care is available when the need arises.

The amount of money that would be retained and re-purposed by abolishing the insurance sector ENTIRELY more than pays for the CARE that Americans need.

Over the last decade, I’ve personally paid over $40,000 to Blue Cross for insurance I have literally never used, because my deductible is never hit.

Is there not a better use for money presently spent on insurance, like, for example, care? - plunger

You know what? I agree with him!!!

'My advice, as a Christian priest, is to shoplift. I do not offer such advice because I think that stealing is a good thing, or because I think it is harmless, for it is neither.

'I would ask that they do not steal from small family businesses, but from large national businesses, knowing that the costs are ultimately passed on to the rest of us in the form of higher prices.

'I would ask them not to take any more than they need, for any longer than they need.

'I offer the advice with a heavy heart and wish society would recognise that bureaucratic ineptitude and systematic delay has created an invitation and incentive to crime for people struggling to cope.'

"Universal health care is health care coverage for all eligible residents of a political region and often covers medical, dental and mental health care. Typically, costs are borne in the majority by publicly-funded programs.

Universal health care systems vary according to the extent of government involvement in providing care and/or health insurance. In some countries, such as the UK, Spain, and the Nordic countries, the government has a high degree of involvement in the commissioning or delivery of health care services and access is based on residence rights not on the purchase of insurance. Others have a much more pluralistic delivery system based on obligatory health with contributory insurance rates related to salaries or income, and usually funded by employers and beneficiaries jointly. Sometimes the health funds are derived from a mixture of insurance premiums and government taxes. These insurance based systems tend to have a higher proportion of private medical providers obtaining reimbursement, often at heavily regulated rates, through mutual or publicly owned medical insurers. A few countries such as the Netherlands and Switzerland operate via privately owned but heavily regulated private insurers. Americans use the term single-payer health care to describe the pooling of health care funds into a single not-for-profit fund for a region or nation.

Universal health care is implemented in all industrialized countries, with the exception of the United States.[1] It is also provided in many developing countries."

God and Jesus are against health care reform in the United States - the Republicans

This is why I hate the right/Republicans/evangelicals/etc...whatever you want to call them. They hijack religion as false prophets. They have their own Jesus - "Republican Jesus". Here they are praying to GOD to stop health care reform, with two Republican senators. No, this isn't a 3rd world country, this is the USA and these are Republicans. Take a good look at "the right" or whatever you want to call it, and let me repeat: they're praying to GOD to stop health care reform and there are two actual Republican senators in this video - how can these two senators actually be there praying? They should immediately be kicked out of office! This is ridiculous! It's scary that these two MORONS are senators with control over our lives! Take a look at Republican senators Jim DeMint and Sam Brownback - sickening, disgusting, backwards, embarrassing:

...and then take a look at this - it's funny, yet it's profound:

The right/Republicans/whatever ya wanna call 'em, are false prophets and snake oil salesmen who quote Republican Jesus, not the real Jesus. They are NOT the "party of GOD". They are crazy liars who don't believe in science and you might die because of how stupid they are. They'll take anything and say "God wants us to do it", and God DOESN'T want us to do it. They are just saying that so idiots do what they want, and they say "Jesus said it". It's actually blasphemy and false prophets. It's exactly like an infomercial on TV. YOU are an IDIOT, if you think Jesus and/or God doesn't want everyone covered by health care, or even if Jesus and/or God is weighing in on ANYTHING a friggin' political party is saying! IMMEDIATELY...when a politician mentions God or Jesus, they are LYING TO YOU! God isn't speaking to them, they are LYING to you! Any politician who mentions God or Jesus should immediately resign. MORONS are NOT to be ignored, they can kill you with their stupidity and ignorance. MORONS should not be in the United States government. We need to get all of the MORONS out of our government. like those two Republican senators praying to Jesus to stop health care reform in our country.
