America, Fight Back: Nationalize the Oil Industry! (tags)

Surging oil prices are sinking the U.S. economy, while Big Oil is raking in obscene profits. For example, ExxonMobil recorded profits in 2007 of $40.6 billion. Its CEO’s pay averaged out to $13,700 an hour. Today, gas is selling at $3.50 a gallon with no end in sight. Truckers are paying more for their diesel fuel and as a result food prices are rising. Globally, nationalization of the oil industry is the trend. It’s time for the U.S. to join that club.

The War, Prisons, and the Economy (tags)

As the wars drag on with no end in sight, new technology is enabling more of our wounded troops to survive, and naturally, survival comes with added cost. From WWII to the present, survival rates rose from 1 dead for every 2.4 wounded to 1 dead to 8.3 wounded at present. In that time, an outfit cost went from $170 to $17,000 now. Future systems are expected to reach $28,000 to $60,000 in this decade. Every life is indeed precious, regardless of the price, but let us look at what makes up the cost of each system. Ever since, President Eisenhower coined the term Military Industrial Complex, most of us are aware of the huge profits war can provide for the weapon makers. How many of you are aware of the Prison Industrial Complex, (PIC)? Do you know the two complexes have now joined together to share in the rich profit bonanza?

Each and every Sunday since February 15th 2004, this memorial is set up on the sand just north of the pier at Santa Monica Beach. We've been putting up this memorial as a way to acknowledge the costs and consequences of the addiction to war as an instrument of international policy. Similar to the Vietnam Memorial Wall in Washington D.C., we've a weekly updated placard listing all the fallen American military personnel since the U.S. invaded and occupied Iraq to the present day. People read the names, ages, rank, hometown and circumstance of death, write their name on a piece of paper along with any thoughts or sentiments and attach this to any cross along with a flower. In addition, we've also a sign to acknowledge the fact that if we were to put up a cross for each Iraqi person killed the numbers of crosses would fill the entire beach. As we have no way of knowing the various faiths or philosophies of the many who have sacrificed their lives fighting for their illusions, the simplicity of a cross is used as a marker. Arlington West is a place to mourn, reflect, contemplate, grieve, and meditate, and to honor and acknowledge those who've lost their lives and to reflect upon the true cost of war.

No Business like socialism – booming blue collar business in Finland (tags)

When one has to pay 50USD for something normally worth of 5USD is there something wrong with the pricing in monopoly. But, how about selling it for 20USD in cash to fix the salary?

The Case Against Administrator Natsios (tags)

In April of 2003, President Bush's appointee to the Agency for International Development appeared on Nightline and unequivocally claimed reconstruction in Iraq would only cost American taxpayers $1.7 Billion dollars. Damn lies, all of them. Six months later the transcript disappeared from USAID.gov. Good thing I saved it.

Growing Panic at BushCo (tags)

The cost of making it flow could produce an economic crisis in the US. And it is this - rather than the daily killing of young American soldiers - that lies behind the Bush administration's growing panic. Washington has got its hands on the biggest treasure chest in the world - but it can't open the lid.

Pre-war predictions of quick exit, oil-financed reconstruction evaporate (tags)

Even as U.S. troops continue to be killed in Iraq at the rate of about one a day, the United States faces the prospect of occupying the country indefinitely and leading an international reconstruction effort costing tens of billions of dollars, according to several estimates.

Secrets galore (tags)

But calling stuff "SECRET" to cover up Pentagon screw-ups that cost soldiers' lives or to protect war racketeers' pet scams violates what our country is about.

It was Gulf War I, and I was marching up the old Post Rd. in Connecticut for Peace. I carried a sign reporting on the number of our soldiers that had been killed thus far, when a sleek, silver BMW pulled up alongside me. The profusely sweating, purple faced man, his bejeweled ringed, sausage fingers, tightly gripping the hand tooled leather steering wheel, spit in my face screaming, "You no-good, unemployed, Communist faggot!"

What's a government to do? Why, go to war, of course."

Think of it this way: The Whitewater real estate deal involved a total investment of about $200,000…. Whitewater itself never cost the taxpayers a dime, but the demise of Jim McDougal's Madison Guaranty S&L reportedly cost the taxpayers maybe $65 million. Now Republicans are reminding us what a real financial scandal looks like. With the value of its stock plunging from $94 a share to 26 cents, the cost of the Enron implosion is roughly ONE THOUSAND TIMES greater than McDougal's finagling. It'll be interesting to see if it receives ten percent of the attention.

The American Prospect: The $212-Billion Giveaway (tags)

On a party-line vote, the House GOP passed a bloated "stimulus" tax-cut bill expected to cost a staggering $212 billion over the next 3 years. With typical dishonesty, the GOP called it a $99-billion measure, referring only to its first-year cost. The press parrots agreed. 2/3rd of the cuts would go to corporations. Altogether, almost 3/4ths the total cuts next year go to the top 1/10th of all taxpayers. 41% go the best-off 1%.

CTJ: $212 Billion House GOP "Stimulus" Tax Bill Would Almost Double Bush Tax Cut (tags)

The House Ways and Means Committee, on a party line vote, has approved a bill that over the next three years would almost double the size of the Bush tax cuts enacted last May. Officially, the new corporate and individual tax cuts are estimated to cost $212 billion over the next three fiscal years (and the actual cost is likely to be considerably higher).
