The biggest self-help of all

Bible Self-Help - Associated Content from Yahoo! - associatedcontent.com: "Self-Help in The Bible. Abba - Jesus name for his Father - is the protagonist of the Bible. Abba is in everyone. That's the biggest self-help of all."

Disgusting Paypal, Mastercard and Visa behavior

Without credit card donations, WikiLeaks facing funding crisis | McClatchy: "WASHINGTON — WikiLeaks, the whistleblower website that has been at the center of some of the world's most controversial news for the past 18 months, is facing dire economic times, largely, the website says, because Visa, MasterCard and PayPal have refused for more than 10 months to process donations made on its behalf."

We should litigate this ASAP. This should result in serious opposition to these behemoths. They have a virtual monopoly and a responsibility to donors. I am disgusted. Almost as disgusted as with the President's treatment of Bradley Manning. I hope Occupy takes note!

Plus McClatchy was the first place I found this which suggests the media may not give a damn as has generally been the case on this issue. I hope I am wrong. This is genuinely noxious behavior.

Turkey stricken by 7.2 quake

'Many dead' as quake shakes eastern Turkey - World news - Europe - msnbc.com: "ANKARA, Turkey — A powerful 7.2-magnitude earthquake struck eastern Turkey Sunday, collapsing about 45 buildings according to the deputy prime minister"

Good news perhaps for the Kurds. Sad and yet another summons to the world as a whole to build for these things, do not rebuild, build right.

Will Chicago Repeat 1968?

At Least 100 Arrested In Occupy Chicago Protest : NPR: "Anti-Wall Street demonstrators of the Occupy Chicago movement stood their ground in a downtown park in noisy but peaceful defiance of police orders to clear out, prompting at least 100 arrests early Sunday, authorities said.

Occupy Chicago spokesman Joshua Kaunert vowed after the arrests that protests would continue in the Midwest city."

This is not funny. In 1968 - I was there in the thick of it - Daley and cops managed to turn a peaceful provocation into a bloodbath and we ended up with Nixon. I would think Rahm would know this even if he was too young to participate. We need to underline the nonviolent nature of this protest and its ubiquity.

Mitt Romney Studied Johnny Carson

Aristotle's Virtues Applied to Mitt Romney - Associated Content from Yahoo! - associatedcontent.com:

Mitt Romney studied Johnny Carson
Until he got his MO down
Now Mitt is cruising like a trouper
Until his party slaps him down

I get the feeling something's changing

John Boehner Sings a Drinking Song - Associated Content from Yahoo! - associatedcontent.com:

I get the feeling something's changing
John Boehner soon will feel the fire
He's better hold off on the booze now
Lest it become John Boehner's pyre

I am not talking of a burning
So much as of a big reverse
It is the tide the tide is turning
Sober up John it could be worse
