Our country will be changed into a “third” world country where some animals will be more equal that others.

Possibly reporting it. I watched Greta off and on last night to see if she was going to cover the bodies being found in ABQ, and she was covering the stimulus package. And not very positively.

It means the USA and everything it has stood for is in the process of being destroyed and our new President and the far-left Senate and House are more than happy to go along.

One of Murdoch’s biggest concerns is keeping his TV rights in China. Fox being more conervative was a business move. When Americans wealth is wiped out by O and O destroying capitalism then we will be serfs to China.

The GOP needs to wake up. We have the natural resources to turn this around.

Saul Alinsky on "Change"...
From Rules for Radicals, Alinsky outlines his strategy in organizing, writing:

"There's another reason for working inside the system. Dostoevsky said that taking a new step is what people fear most. Any revolutionary change must be preceded by a passive, affirmative, non-challenging attitude toward change among the mass of our people. They must feel so frustrated, so defeated, so lost, so futureless in the prevailing system that they are willing to let go of the past and change the future. This acceptance is the reformation essential to any revolution."

A Landslide Mandate For Change

Congratulations on an extraordinary history making election!

We can think back with pride to decades of hard work toward our strategic goal of a big enough, broad enough and united enough labor and all-people’s movement that could overcome the ultra-right blockage to all progress. That all people’s movement has come to life, it is dynamic and it has the potential to keep growing.

The election of Barack Obama and a strengthened Congress creates new conditions in our country. There is now the possibility to shift gears and move forward. This new day requires us to further develop our tactics in order to continue to deepen and broaden labor and people’s unity.

There are thousands of experiences that we all have had in these momentous days, some large, some small, all of which express the enormity of change in thinking and readiness for involvement that is underway and that steels us for the battles ahead.

The tears of joy we all shared as crowds gathered to watch the election results here and throughout the world dramatize the new moment we are in.

“We are in the midst of a phase of history in which nations will be redefined and their futures fundamentally altered.”



Name one era in history when healthy societies weren't being “redefined” and their futures “fundamentally altered”

The only ones that remain constant and never changing are the stagnant, stone age tribal societies when come into contact with more advanced cultures, are overwhelmed and destroyed.

Think the American Indian, the numerous African tribes, Etc. etc....

You have meddled with the primal forces of nature, Mr. Beale, and I won't have it. You are an old man who thinks in terms of nations and peoples. There are no nations; there are no peoples. There are no Russians. There are no Arabs. There is no third world. There is no west. There is only one holistic system of systems; one vast interwoven, interacting, multivariate multinational dominion of dollars. Petrodollars, electrodollars, reichmarks, rubles, rin, pounds and shekels. It is the international system of currency that determines the totality of life on this planet. That is the natural order of things today. That is the atomic, subatomic and galactic structure of things today. It is the international system of currency that determines the totality of life on this planet. That is the natural order of things. You have meddled with the primal forces of nature, and you will atone! Am I getting through to you, Mr. Beale? You get up on your little twenty-one inch screen and howl about America and Democracy. There is no America. There is no democracy. There is only IBM and ITT and AT &T and Dupont, Dow, Union Carbide and Exxon. Those are the nations of the world today. What do you think the Russians talk about in their councils of state? Karl Marx? They pull out their linear programming charts, statistical decision theories, and minimax solutions and compute the price-cost probabilities of their transactions and investments just like we do. We no longer live in a world of nations and ideologies, Mr. Beale. The world is a college of corporations inexorably determined by the immutable by-laws of business. The world is a business, Mr. Beale! It has been since man crawled out of the slime. And our children will live to see that perfect world in which there is no war or famine, oppression or brutality. One vast and ecumenical holding company for whom all men will work to serve a common profit and in which all men will own a share of stock, all necessities provided, all anxieties tranquilized, all boredom amused. And I have chosen you to preach this evangel.

I have noticed the same thing. I think the attacks on Palin, and her family really upset Gretta. I'm still not crazy about her show because of the gossip magazine style of content it has.

Only one identified, 10 found, including an unborn baby.

http://abcnews.go.com/US/story?id=6942996&page=1

Quite possibly not reporting it because the one id’d was a prostitute, and many of the reported missing during that time period were too.

My ancestors have been in America before there was a United States of America, and some member of my family has fought in just about every war the USA has fought. This does not come easy for me to say, but I have lost all hope in the future of this nation. If there was ever a time for states or regions to secede and become independent, it is now. There is no way that future generations will ever be able to live under this enormous national debt. When you take an objective look at the demographics of this country, more and more people are living off of the government. It is only going to get worse. Congress is run by socialists and a few states, such as California and New York. The American dream is gone, and we are now living in a nightmare.

Making our nation go broke, dismantling defense and/or not being able to afford proper defense, either at our borders or for the WOT. Look at what Clinton’s defense cut lead to: a lack of funding to properly deal with the terrorism threat which they were fully aware of.

MURDOCH WARNS: NATIONS WILL BE REDEFINED, FUTURES ALTERED
Tue Feb 24 2009 08:36:39 ET

Media baron Rupert Murdoch issued an urgent internal communication late Monday, warning his staff: “We are in the midst of a phase of history in which nations will be redefined and their futures fundamentally altered.”

MORE

The dramatic call comes as markets continue their plunge and the future of media becomes increasingly muddled.

“Many people will be under extreme pressure and many companies mortally wounded,” Murdoch declared.

“Our competitors will be sorely tempted to take the easy beat, to reduce quality in the search for immediate dividends.”

He continued: “Let me be very clear about our company: where others might step back from their commitment to their viewers, their users, readers and customers – we will renew ours.

“The direction of the business now and over the next few years will define the character of our company for decades.”

Developing...

Here's the deal though. The nightmare didn't begin on Nov 4, 2008.
