"We must speak plainly about what Russia tried to do today: diminish the authority of the U.N.

Secretary-General and export to the U.N. its domestic hostility to LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender) rights," the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Samantha Power, said in a statement after the vote."

I like what Samantha Power said.

good thing for our country that those with the ignorant cheap pot shots have no clue about the

reality of what's going. Good thing for the young people who have been helped enormously by the O Admin.. and they do appreciate it.. I've seen their faces.

Unlike those whose only purpose is to distract from the successes of President Obama and his Admin.



"Obama credited morning exercise and his Hawaiian roots for his ability to keep a calm demeanor in

such a high-stress environment, but he noted family is what really keeps him grounded."

All vitally important, she.. I follow that sage advice, myself. Such a sweetheart.

Mahalo, she~

Thanks Rude.. "Christian" needs to be in quotes, imo.. Don't know much about religion but I

can't imagine that Christ would condone the lying sociopath/AKA/tedster cruz.

"Ted Cruzís Biggest Liability Is Probably His Constant Lying"


"..If Cruz is different, however, itís because of how boldly he claims things that arenít even remotely true."

".. His blatant acts of malfeasance including lying with no remorse, reciting childrenís poetry, and shutting down government as part of a plan to get his way are not only petty, but precarious and selfish, albeit inventive."

mahalo meeg

LOL.. yeah tedster is "first"..

clown to announce, alright..

You and I are thinkin' along the same lines there, BRDS.. from the get-go.. I've said cruz must

be soooo jealous of this latest sociopath to come down the pike..

And, this just now..


Like the death match pic..

Putin's a * *.. got a hide once for cussing out poor putin.. so I will leave it at that..

"The Pro gmo lobby" is Orwellian, imo. "Choice"? How about "labeling" their products to actually

have said "choice"? "Democracy"?! Shite, they wouldn't know "Democracy" when looks them in the face. Damn fascists.

The pro-GMO lobby talks about choice, democracy and the alleged violence of certain environmental groups but says nothing about the structural violence waged on rural communities resulting from IMF/World Bank strings-attached loans, the undermining of global food security as a result of Wall Street commodity and land speculators, the crushing effects of trade rules on poorer regions or the devastating impacts of GMOs in regions like South America. To discuss such things is political and thus Ďideologicalí and is therefore not up for discussion it seems.

Now the city of San Diego has to sue Monsanto.. for fucking up their Bay with chemicals..


A Fed Judge thwarted the Will of the People on Kaua'i.. I hate the MOFO. I moved to the other side of the Island to get away from their relentless spraying of poisonous roundup on the West side.

Federal Judge: Kauai's GMO Law Is Invalid

HONOLULU (AP) ó A Kauai County law requiring companies to disclose their use of pesticides and genetically modified crops is invalid, a federal judge ruled Monday.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Barry Kurren ruled in favor of four seed companies seeking to stop Kauai's new law from going into effect in October.

Syngenta Seeds, DuPont Pioneer, Agrigenetics Inc., doing business as Dow AgroSciences, and BASF Plant Sciences sued for a permanent injunction, arguing the ordinance unfairly targets their industry.

Kurren's ruling agrees that the ordinance is pre-empted by state law. The judge's ruling stops the county from enforcing the ordinance.

"I'm disappointed but that's the judge's option," said Paul Achitoff, an Earthjustice attorney who helped defend the law on behalf of intervening community groups. "I think the consequences for the people of Kauai, in particular, and throughout the state are very unfortunate."



Mahalo, Johny

And, Pres Obama made that very clear in Oct 2002 that he was against the "Dumb" war..


"I don't oppose all wars. What I am opposed to is a dumb war. What I am opposed to is a rash war. What I am opposed to is the cynical attempt by Richard Perle and Paul Wolfowitz and other armchair, weekend warriors in this administration to shove their own ideological agendas down our throats, irrespective of the costs in lives lost and in hardships borne.

What I am opposed to is the attempt by political hacks like Karl Rove to distract us from a rise in the uninsured, a rise in the poverty rate, a drop in the median income, to distract us from corporate scandals and a stock market that has just gone through the worst month since the Great Depression.


But I also know that Saddam poses no imminent and direct threat to the United States, or to his neighbors...and that in concert with the international community he can be contained until, in the way of all petty dictators, he falls away into the dustbin of history.

I know that even a successful war against Iraq will require a U.S. occupation of undetermined length, at undetermined cost, with undetermined consequences.

I know that an invasion of Iraq without a clear rationale and without strong international support will only fan the flames of the Middle East, and encourage the worst, rather than best, impulses of the Arab world, and strengthen the recruitment arm of al-Qaeda.

The rest..
