While Conventions and Hurricanes Distract Us

September 6, 2008

Lew Rockwell, a one-time staff member for Ron Paul, stated bluntly, “If the only alternative to the socialism of the Democrats is the fascism of the Republicans then we are in serious trouble”.

The condition of the world slips passed without so much as a glance.  Why do we allow ourselves to be so surprised?

(Bloomberg) — India’s 34-year ban on nuclear trade will be lifted after the nation reiterated pledges to maintain a moratorium on nuclear testing, paving the way for companies to sell reactors and fuel to the world’s second most-populous state.

(Reuters) – Asif Ali Zardari has completed a traumatic journey from prison to the presidency of Pakistan.

(Bloomberg) — The U.S. lost more jobs than forecast in August and the unemployment rate climbed to a five-year high of 6.1 percent, a sign that the economic slowdown is worsening two months before Americans elect their next president.

(Reuters) – The U.S. government plans to put government sponsored mortgage finance companies Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac under federal control, the New York Times and Washington Post newspapers reported late Friday, in what could be the largest financial bailout in the nation’s history.

(Bloomberg) — India’s 34-year ban on nuclear trade will be lifted after the nation reiterated pledges to maintain a moratorium on nuclear testing, paving the way for companies to sell reactors and fuel to the world’s second most-populous state.

And now for the really scary stuff:

(Reuters) – Iran dismissed on Saturday a warning by France’s president that the Islamic Republic was taking a dangerous gamble over its nuclear program because one day its arch-foe Israel could strike.

China still on-side with Russia
Asia Times – Sino-Russian relations have been under intense scrutiny lately because of the Georgian-Russian conflict over the breakaway Georgian region of South Ossetia. For many in the West, China’s cautious “neutrality” is a departure from, if not a betrayal of, its strategic partnership with Russia.

Russians accuse West of war-like moves

We are all familiar with the 2012 prediction, but, could the “Hadron Collider” stage a “pre-emptive strike” at the Mayan Prophecy … end of the world comes early?

Collider Triggers End-of-World Fears

On Sept. 10, scientists at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) laboratory in Geneva,     Switzerland, will switch on the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) — a $6 billion particle accelerator that will send beams of protons careening around a 17-mile underground ring, crash them into each other to re-create the immediate aftereffects of the Big Bang, and then monitor the debris in the hope of learning more about the origins and workings of the universe.

Large Hadron Collider will not turn world to goo, promise scientists

This is just a thumbnail of world events and issues that face us today, while the US Media stirs up personality wars among Republicans, Democrats and Independents.  MSM appears to accept party sanitized images of each candidates and allow the rumor mill blogs to do their dirty work for them.  Shades of the 1960s again … La La La Live For Today. Explain that to the children!
