Wave the flag, keep the message simple, talk about the American way of life and tell the big lie. Tell it loud and tell it often.

"Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it"

Adolf Hitler

The Right wants you stupid and wants you to believe their lies. They want your support for their programs which are the programs of big oil and coal, the health care industry, the pharmaceutical industry and the banking/mortgage industry. The Republican Right serves these industries not the average American's needs, it is profit that is important to them, the public get the slogans and lip service.
The truth is business is good for America, it is what made America grow. But these industries have become predatory industries. They no longer benefit America, they benefit shareholders and the corporate heads. The common man is now it's victim. They will despoil the environment, deny health care to the needy, exploit the weak and under educated. They work at brain washing Americans with their ally the Right Wing Media. They wave the flag, keep the message simple, talk about the American way of life and tell the big lie. They tell it loud and they tell it often. If the lie is outrageous enough be more insistent and it will be believed. Only through oversight, government regulation and transparency can these industries be expected to act as responsible corporate citizens. It is time they stopped bribing our legislators to serve their corporate needs above the needs of the constituents and that they are made to account for their irresponsible actions. The following article in The Nation puts the lie to the Right and their propaganda machine.

This is certainly worth a read if you truly care about Health Care Reform. It is not what the Right wants it to look like. The truth to the Right is an uncomfortable reality that this is good for America and would challenge the strangle hold that the Health Care Industry has on Americans. The true euthanasia is when the Health Care industry denies it members the care they paid for and expect. The Health Industry has sold America on the big lie and has kept at it until it has been believed by many Americans.

Here it is a simplified explanation of how Government run Healthcare would work, and why it is a good idea.

Methane, is the world on the brink of climate disaster?

"On a calm day, you can see 20 or more `seeps' out across this lake," said Canadian researcher Rob Bowen, sidling his small rubber boat up beside one of them. A tossed match would have set it ablaze. "It's essentially pure methane."

"Pure methane, gas bubbling up from underwater vents, escaping into northern skies, adds to the global-warming gases accumulating in the atmosphere. And pure methane escaping in the massive amounts known to be locked in the Arctic permafrost and seabed would spell a climate catastrophe.Is such an unlocking under way?" more...

The Pacific Ocean is becoming a sea of plastic waste endangering the sea life and the food chain.

"Capt. Charles Moore of the Algalita Marine Research Foundation first discovered the Great Pacific Garbage Patch -- an endless floating waste of plastic trash. Now he's drawing attention to the growing, choking problem of plastic debris in our seas."
