RNC Big LIE Ads - Example One (Video)

How Obama Describes America - YouTube:

All Obama needs to do is show this with the actual statements he made in context. But never underestimate the swiftboating nefariousness of the GOP. The lied their way in in 2000 and broke the country. And did a reprise in 2010. We need to join forces and circulate the truth over against the RNC falsehood.

OWS retired cop stymies NY constabulary

OWS Fight Is Far from Over: Explosive Actions on 2-Month Anniversary of Movement | Occupy Wall Street | AlterNet: "One protester, however, had a hard time getting the NYPD to take him into custody. Retired Philadelphia police captain Ray Lewis, in full dress uniform, was almost begging to be arrested -- kneeling in front of a line of cops, with his hands behind his back at the southwest corner of Nassau and Pine -- as he decried corporate exploitation. The police made feints at arresting him for a time, almost toying with the retired cop, but wouldn't actually do it -- at first. After he moved back through the crowd and up toward Broadway, they pounced, turning Lewis into a full-fledged OWS folk hero. Walking ramrod straight with his hands behind his back, the retired police captain was led by two NYPD officers through the intersection to the whoops, whistles and applause of the crowd."

Thinking beyond oil is either eccentric or subversion

Deadly Mojave Race - Associated Content from Yahoo! - associatedcontent.com:

"Off road and dirt track racing is everywhere. I've watched in Cedar City, Utah, in New Lebanon, New York. In Vegas. The roar and most of all the (shall we say) fortitude of the drivers transfixes us. Mostly we are far enough from the dangerously careening vehicles to watch in safety. But on Saturday there was not enough distance. Eight were pulverized, twelve nearly so.

If this was Afghanistan, we might call these deaths collateral damage. Our oil world depends on putting lethal machines in the hands of fallible drivers close to defenseless pedestrians. Oil dominates our culture, our economy and, most of all, our mentality. Thinking beyond oil is either eccentric or subversion"

When will we run out of oil?

2 The End of Cheap Oil: When and Why?: "When will we run out of oil? Never. When will we reach peak oil production? Soon (2007-2012) [14, ; also Figure 8]. The issue is not the ``end of oil'', but rather the ``end of cheap oil''. We do not present a doomsday scenario. Eventually, alternative energy sources will come to the fore. We present an oil price shock scenario, with long gasoline lines, wrenching economic adjustments, and trillions of dollars of profits at stake for major companies. (The estimated trillion barrels of oil reserves, at $35 per barrel, is $35 trillion.) This scenario can be alleviated, but only with sufficient planning for alternative energy sources.

The standard economic arguments show that there are 40 years of ultimately recoverable oil in the ground. The arguments are correct, subject to two assumptions. First, the arguments assume that with enough economic incentives, one can extract oil from the ground in ever increasing quantities -- until the day on which the last drop is extracted. Second, they assume that the demand (and so the production) for new oil will remain constant, or grow at current rates, even as third world economies join the first world. Both assumptions are false."

Peak oil panorama

Some say the peak oil crisis is already underway
This merely refers to production and decline in same
It does not add in the crucifixion of Nigeria
It does not add in the crucifixion of the Gulf
It does not add in the daily oil consumption in the US
And its support of a lethal sprawl automobile lifestyle
Some say the crisis will not hit until 2020
And that by then alternatives will have emerged
So say hello to nine nice years of oil spills fracking
Off shore drilling and other depredations
Born of human hubris
And the capacity to create gated realms where the slaughter
Is invisible
And consumption can proceed without a murmur

If the job of leaders is to look ahead and say NO MORE
We have no leaders

Peak oil - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: "Optimistic estimations of peak production forecast the global decline will begin by 2020 or later, and assume major investments in alternatives will occur before a crisis, without requiring major changes in the lifestyle of heavily oil-consuming nations. These models show the price of oil at first escalating and then retreating as other types of fuel and energy sources are used.Pessimistic predictions of future oil production operate on the thesis that either the peak has already occurred, that oil production is on the cusp of the peak, or that it will occur shortly. Production of conventional crude oil peaked in 2004 at 74 million barrels per day, and greater records reached since then represent only small increases that are failing to keep pace with demand from growing countries, such as China and India Throughout the first two quarters of 2008, there were signs that a global recession was being made worse by a series of record oil prices."

The consumer is an income stream

Why we need a redensification of the world

Redensification?
Attaining a sufficient density of population to enable life to flourish 
To enable walkable face to face communities
Where everything necessary for life is available either locally or at a distance
Traverse distances by cyber means using experts who man/woman kiosks
Take orders answer questions become the hubs of a new educational system
Beyond today's imagining
Both today's urban and rural areas are largely unsuited
For the future
But we can reshuffle and create communities of around 10,000
Even today's metro areas of millions could begin to segment into such units.
This is the key to any cogent thinking about the future 
Why
To create viable local democracies
Viable local play
Viable local transportation by foot
Viable local social life
An end to an anomie-based world
Viable local economies
Redensify!
