Boston T. Party (Ken Royce) in the 2nd Hour - But first...Obama comes to Phoenix (again) and is greeted with peaceful armed people. I bet everyone is polite today :) But then,... there are always the agent provocateurs. This is one good reason for so many video cameras and our doing the radio show live from the event.

For their one-and-only family getaway this year, the Billingtons checked in to an upscale San Diego resort on Sunday with many of the usual vacation accessories -- bathing suits, board games and golf clubs.

But they also brought flashlights, sleeping bags and an inflatable mattress because the pool-side room they booked for just $19 comes with a tent where the beds normally would be. They even had to pack their own toilet paper.

Reader's Digest plans to file for bankruptcy to trim its debt
08-17-2009  •  AP 
Reader's Digest Association, publisher of the widely read Reader's Digest magazine, said Monday it will probably file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy so its U.S. business can cut its debt load. The bankruptcy would take the form of a so-called pre-arranged filing, Reader's Digest said in a statement. A pre-arranged filing comes after a company has already reached deals with its lenders to cut its debt.

The Orwellian Healthcare Plan to Usher in New Police State in America
8/17/09  •  PR Inside 
The current Health Bill (House bill H.R. 3200) has mental health parity as part of its Health Plan. This parity is set to provide equal opportunity for non-science psychiatry to be equivalent to a medical doctor’s scientific opinion on health. San Francisco, CA, August 17, 2009 -- Psychiatric patients are traditionally considered “cured” when their insurance benefits run out. In the upcoming bill “Healthy Americans Act, the compensation to psychiatry will not run out. All the psychiatrist has to do is forward their unscientific opinion on whether a patient is cured or not. The legislation is essentially a multi billion dollar taxpayer fund to psychiatrists. Psychiatry’s only remedy is mass psychotropic drugging. It used to be electric shock treatment, lobotomies, and straitjackets, but they found big allies with Pharmaceutical companies, the FDA and now Congress......  Read Full Story

Obama visits Phoenix: Who cares?
08-17-09  •  Daniel Heller 
Obama tainted our beautiful state once again today with his presence and another one of his endless campaign speeches. (Yes, “campaign.” Considering his lack of real governmental experience, the man really doesn’t know how to stop.) This time it he was trying to appeal to veterans by doing what all good socialists and hack salesmen do: promise everything plus the moon...for free! He spoke late this morning in downtown Phoenix at the Veterans of Foreign Wars Convention at the Convention Center. Nothing new here (aside from his being in Phoenix). Big deal. Hope and change.

Continued Lying Requires TALF Extension
08/17/2009  •  The Market Ticker 
In the news today The Federal Reserve announced that due to the continued lying by banks about asset valuations, a practice that has resulted in ABS and CMBS markets remaining locked up, they are continuing to sponsor and support accounting and control fraud, acts that should be treated as felonies and result in prison sentences: Nonetheless, the markets for asset-backed securities (ABS) backed by consumer and business loans and for commercial mortgage-backed securities (CMBS) are still impaired and seem likely to remain so for some time. To promote the flow of credit to businesses and households and to facilitate the financing of commercial properties, the Federal Reserve and Treasury approved extending TALF loans against newly issued ABS and legacy CMBS through March 31, 2010. The markets remain impaired due to the continued lying and will remain so until the lying and control fraud stops. That Congress and The Obama Administration continue permit this lying is an outrage w  Read Full Story

Nassim Nicholas Taleb wrote an open letter today to British Conservative leader David Cameron saying: I despair of the Obama administration's ability to fix this financial crisis and prevent future ones. I am appalled by the dangers it has been creating and its takeover by the same economic establishment responsible for this crisis... Be careful, too, of the so-called science of economics. Economists have been no better in their predictions than cab drivers. We have an "expert" problem, in which the expert provides you with misplaced confidence, but no information. Because we think, correctly, that the dermatologist, the baker, the chemist are true experts (they know more about their respective subjects than the rest of us), we swallow the canard that the economists at the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank, the Bank of England and the US Federal Reserve are also experts, without checking their record.

One Bill of Rights for You, Two Bills of Rights for Them
08-16-2009  •  Injustice Everywhere 
The introductory text of the bill asserts that it is designed to improve police accountability, however the actual language of the bill contains no provisions that would force police departments to investigate complaints or dictate any type of process that would improve accountability at all. In essence, it only gives police officers more rights and communities fewer rights in how they can police their own police.

If ever there was a mockery of Tax payers' money it is this one. I turned on Fox News around 4:30 to catch some of it. I could only manage to watch one thundering round of standing ovation.

he incoming president of the Canadian Medical Association says Canada's health-care system is sick and doctors need to develop a plan to cure it. Dr. Anne Doig says patients are getting less than optimal care, and she adds that physicians from across the country " who will gather in Saskatoon today for their annual meeting " recognize that changes must be made. "We all agree that the system is imploding, we all agree that things are more precarious than perhaps Canadians realize," Doig told The Canadian Press. "We know that there must be change," she said. "We're all running flat out, we're all just trying to stay ahead of the immediate day-to-day demands."  Read Full Story

Blasting Neutrinos Under Wisconsin May Yield Big Payoff
08-16-2009  •  Washington Post 

Make that under Wisconsin. Because the Earth is round, anyone wishing to send an object in a straight line from one spot on the planet to another spot 500 miles away must aim through the planet itself.

Here's where the really weird physics kick in: Neutrinos blast right through the Earth with nary a spark. They interact so rarely and so weakly with normal matter that they can zip right through solid rock as though it were not even there -- much like light through a clear glass window. That's why, contrary to the hopes of some private contractors who heard about a big new experiment under construction, Fermilab does not need to dig a tunnel underneath Wisconsin.

Mullen traveled to Kabul in April to confront McKiernan. The chairman hoped the commander would opt to save face and retire, but he refused. 

You're going to have to fire me, he told Mullen.

Two weeks later, Gates did. It was the first sacking of a wartime theater commander since President Harry S. Truman dismissed Gen. Douglas MacArthur in 1951 for opposing his Korean War policy.
