Big Dan's Big News August 14, 2010

Special Commentary by Big Dan: "The Republican Party must think they'll stoke up enough votes from healthy, white heterosexuals with jobs to win elections based on their year-long assault on these 'other Americans': gays (Prop-8, gay marriage), hispanics (racial profiling with SB1070 in Arizona), blacks (ACORN and Shirley Sherrod...both with FAKED edited hoax videos, Van Jones, Rev Wright, Black Panthers), Muslims (the Mosques), the unemployed (they all voted against the unemployment extension to unemployed Americans...while all voting FOR another $59 BILLION for the money pit "wars" costing us $2.5 BILLION a week...saying they needed to save money), and 9/11 first responders (they all voted against giving free, fully funded health care to 9/11 first responders, funded by taxing companies sending our jobs overseas, that are now dying because of being lied to about the air quality at ground zero when they selfishly (sarcastic) came from all around the country to help their fellow Americans). And then we have a group, the Tea Party and all their offshoots, whose basis is protesting taxes, yet according to FACTS of recent polls they are almost all white and have received tax cuts and are OK with entitlements. So what are they protesting? Fascism or a (half) black president? Nixon invented the Republican 'Southern Strategy' which is, in the words of his own campaign architects, a strategy to stoke the fear of whites against non-whites to get them out to the polls, since whites are the majority anyway. 'Scare' the majority to the polls, if they're going to vote your way, by creating divisions based of fear. FDR said we have nothing to fear but fear itself. The current GOP has added: gays, Muslims, Hispanics, unemployed, and ground zero workers. It's non-stop bombardment of bigoted rhetoric which will surely get even worse before the November elections."

Republican Party Only Winning Key 2010 Poll In Southern States

Before I get into "prison for profit" privatizing/corporatizing prisons in Arizona on the pretense of stoking fear against illegal immigrants all the while hiding GOP ties to the Arizona for-profit prison industry, I would like to remind everyone of what the results will be:

...and here's the results of our ongoing probe into NEPA private/corporate prison-for-profit "Kids for Cash" scandal...won't we ever learn??? And to prove it's a bad idea, the NEPA scandal involved Democrats, so prison-for-profit doesn't care about "party" cares about "profits":

...and here we go in Arizona with the Republicans:

GOP "illegal immigrants for cash" scandal's not yet a scandal, but based on these reports, it's a soon-to-be scandal...will it be headed off by anyone who cares? Or anyone who has learned any lessons about privatizing prisons?

BP critic "dies of heart attack" (wink wink)...anyone think this is fishy???

Matthew Simmons: "We've Now Killed The Gulf Of Mexico"

Prominent oil investor Matt Simmons died of a heart attack last night at his home in North Haven, Maine, according to police reports.

The famed energy banker was a prominent proponent of peak oil theory, and most recently got attention for his dire calls about the fate of the Gulf of Mexico.

The debate about the effect of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill -- he thought it would be cataclysmic -- lead him to split with his old firm, Simmons & Co., of which he was the chairman emeritus.

His legacy will no doubt be his work on peak oil and resource scarcity.
