MA-9 voters want Bill Clinton to campaign after we choose our candidate

While I welcome President Bill Clinton's interest in the MA-9 race and his willingness to stump and fund raise, I'd ask him and the MA Democratic Party to wait until the people have selected their candidate in the primary before stumping and fund raising - which is to ask the President to respect the will of the people not tilt the field to the incumbent.

We have an important Democratic primary in MA-9 this year. Candidates and campaign volunteers are out canvassing and phone banking for Stephen Lynch, Mac D'Alessandro and Phil Dunkelbarger.

World Cup Lacrosse Championship host nation Great Britain kicks Iroquois Nation to the curb


Photo credit CBC Sports 2006

That the Iroquois Nation could not get a visa to travel to the FIL Lacrosse World Cup in Manchester, England is clearly a great failure of the Great Britian's consulate. And it's too bad the US State Department and Canada could not do more to pave the way: Don't they know sports can be a path to mutual respect and cooperation? Not for nothing but don't they know American Indians invented the frigging game?

How bad is the oil spill? Flight sheds light on magnitude of disaster

This is the most emotionally disturbing video I have ever done! A flight over the BP Slick Source where I saw at least 100 Dolphins in the oil, some dying. I also photographed a Sperm Whale covered in oil all around it's blow hole. Please spread this around the world. Send me any links to places it gets posted so I can follow. I want to piss off the world. Who will answer for these gentle creatures?

Democrats, Scott Brown has commitment issues, it’s time to move on

from FDL Seminal by Jason Rosenbaum:

After giving Senator Scott Brown exactly what he wanted and paying for the Wall Street reform bill on the backs of taxpayers by using TARP money instead of the proposed tax on big banks – which in Brown’s twisted world constitutes eliminating a tax – Brown’s still not on board with the final bill. Here’s his statement:
“I appreciate the conference committee revisiting the Wall Street reform bill and removing the $19 billion bank tax. Over the July recess, I will continue to review this important bill. I remain committed to putting in place safeguards to prevent another financial meltdown, ensure that consumers are protected, and that this bill is paid for without new taxes."

Scott Brown: Don't Ask Don't Tell

Scott Brown seems to have become much more cautious as he matured. Once known for wearing pink leather shorts on a date with his future wife, Scott

....believes any vote for repeal [of Don't Ask Don't Tell] should be put off until the Pentagon has time to formulate a plan for implementing any new policy.

"I am keeping an open mind, but I do not support moving ahead until I am able to finish my review, the Pentagon completes its study, and we can be assured that a new policy can be implemented without jeopardizing the mission of our military," Brown said in a statement provided to the Globe.

Will Scott finish his review before he goes on vacation? What about the military men and women who are being outed and losing their careers while Scott Brown dithers. How does that make us safe?

Sen. Scott Brown provides 41st vote to kill Wall Street Reform

Was this what Scott Brown had in mind when he claimed he would be independent voting for what serves his constituents in Massachusetts as opposed to voting the Republican party line? Scott Brown joined 40 other Republican senators to filibuster the Wall Street reform bill. In fact, the bill is not dead but Republicans stand in the way of allowing it to come to the Senate floor for debate. It seems they would prefer back room deals rather than public, open debate, recorded on C-Span available for all to watch.

Once again, Scott Brown has chosen to vote Republican party line instead of for financial regulatory reform that would protect taxpayers from systemic risk that should be limited to the business who are engaged in the risky business.

How's your 401K? Your job? The value of your home? Want to go through a boom and bust economy two or three more times and taxpayer bilouts of financial institutions? If yes deregulate. If no regulate financial markets for system risk.

From the PBS NewsHour, "Could Financial Reform Make Bailouts, 'Too Big to Fail' Less Likely?"
