    could our politicians do us in? destroy the dollar as the reserve currency and cost every one a lot more when they
    want credit? not so sure that the Chinese currency will do it though, since its not trade able. and nobody really trusts their numbers any way (being a dictatorship does make it easy to ‘fix’ the numbers)

    Light comment night due to the debate?

    I marveled at the post-debate media commentary tonight. Romney apparently “won” for “going on the offensive”:–election.html

    Really, despite getting raped for three decades at the hands of Republicans, the middle class and Social Security and Medicaid recipients will see Romney as their protector just because he says so and does it aggressively?

    Friends tell me Americans are no dumber or smarter than the rest of the world. We will have to see about that. What I do believe is we have always had government of the people by the people for the people, and no banksters, lobbysists, corporate special interests, or any of the other popular scapegoats of our culture should ever defeat a people’s basic common sense. Whatever state they find themselves in now or find themselves in the future, Americans created it and have no one else to blame for it.

    i didn’t watch the clown show. i’m not impressed with psychopaths that can lie to us while looking us in the eye and smiling, or say what we want to hear and then promptly change their minds and do the opposite once elected. i will no longer vote for the corporatists. Do what you think is best.

    While corporate media will be airing President Barack Obama and Republican nominee Mitt Romney in the first presidential debate in Denver Wednesday night, Democracy Now! will be highlighting presidential contenders whose voices have been shut out: Jill Stein of the Green Party and Rocky Anderson of the Justice Party. Common Dreams will be streaming their live coverage tonight from 8:30 to 11:30 p.m. ET when they will pause after questions to include equal time responses absent from the corporate-sponsored debate.
