Being fat and rich is a great luxury Americans enjoy. Even the poor have it good with $150 sneakers and Obamaphone. At any rate, with too much time on their hands here are some of the nuttiest things Americans petition for…presumably because they have nothing better to do.Comments »
“Al Gore justifies his extravagant lifestyle by purchasing carbon credits to offset his CO2 emissions in an attempt to appear to be living “carbon neutral”. Gore owns a corporation called Generation Investment Management, LLP (GIM) that is chaired and partially owned by Gore. However, Gore simply invests in his own carbon tax investment firm to maintain profits and claim carbon credits purchased.
GIM states that they are “dedicated to long-term investing, integrated sustainability research and client alignment.”
Gore and David Blood created GIM, which represents 16 nations and influences sustainable research through employed “investment analysts and leaders.” By pushing sustainable development, GIM uses studies to assess a corporation’s value based on summations of long-term performance as determined by GIM. The challenges of sustainability are devised by international factors, costs and externalities that are “interlinked with climate change crisis and poverty, pandemics and demographics, water scarcity and migration/urbanization.”
In order to hock their fear-mongering on greenhouse emissions, GIM asserts that capital markets and capitalism must “transition from a high-carbon to low-carbon economy” so that eco-fascists are assured the power in a premeditated new Industrial Revolution. Stressing this “fact”, the GIM believes that “sustainable solutions will be the primary driver of industrial and economic development for the coming decades.”
Gore says that “integrating issues such as climate change into investment analysis is simply common sense.” There is an expectation that within the next 25 years “sustainable development will be a primary driver of industrial and economic change.” Gore affirms that investing with GIM will maximize corporation’s “financial return by strategically managing their performance in this new economic, social, environmental and ethical context.”
The GIM sees “long term environmental, socioeconomic and governance challenges” can be quelled with the control of a corporation’s ability to contribute to the profitability of sustainability. GIM can focus attention to global markets through the allocation of corporations that support their schemes.
According to the GIM’s report entitled “Thematic Research Highlights”, published in 2007 outlines how by claiming that man-made climate change is real, and carbon markets are the answer to staving off the effects of this hoax, sustainability can be implanted into the psyche of governmental leaders, corporate heads and individual citizens to create viable investment opportunities for profitability for the GIM and aligned corporations.
The GIM is furthered by the efforts of The Generation Foundation who is supported by:
The Generation Foundation also works with:
- The Carbon Disclosure Project who “provides a secretariat for the world’s largest institutional investor collaboration on the business implications of climate change, now representing $31 trillion of assets under management.”
- The European Social Investment Forum that endeavors to “encourage and develop sustainable and responsible investment and better corporate governance.”
- The International Corporate Governance Network that is investor-driven and who demands that they be an authority on “corporate governance” and issues that affect international control.
- The UN Global Compact who is comprised of international corporations that have “citizenship” as a network of private sector corporations and social actors to “advance corporate citizenship and universal social and environmental principles to meet the challenges of globalization.”…”

Interesting Fact Indeud: In Wake of U.S. Global War on Terror, International Terrorist Attacks Have Quadrupled Since 911
If the United States’ war on terror was intended to curb terrorist attacks, then it has failed to meet its goal.
Since the September 11, 2001, attacks, terrorism incidents worldwide have actually gone up, from 982 in 2002 to 4,564 in 2011, according to a new study from the Institute for Economics and Peace.
Fatalities resulting from terrorism also have increased, although they peaked five years ago and have been on a downward trend since. In 2002, more than 3,800 people died due to terrorist attacks, climbing to 7,473 deaths last year, 25% less than in 2010.Comments »

“The Food and Drug Administration is warning U.S. consumers that the vast majority of Internet pharmacies are fraudulent and likely are selling counterfeit drugs that could harm them.
The agency on Friday launched a national campaign, called BeSafeRx, to alert the public to the danger, amid evidence that more people are shopping for their medicine online, looking for savings and convenience.
Instead, they’re likely to get fake drugs that are contaminated, are past their expiration date or contain no active ingredient, the wrong amount of active ingredient or even toxic substances such as arsenic and rat poison. They could sicken or kill people, cause them to develop a resistance to their real medicine, cause new side effects or trigger harmful interactions with other medications being taken.”Comments »
In expected form Merkel continues to play games with really acting swiftly to curb European debt problems. She is looking for G-20 help. Q: If the G-20 did not help last year with Greece, then why would they help now with Spain, Italy, and Cyprus ?
The G-20 meets in Mexico next week and Merkel plans to pitch them. Hopefully she drinks the water and gets Montezuma’s revenge.Comments »
“Note from Senior Management:
Andrew Breitbart was never a “Birther,” and Breitbart News is a site that has never advocated the narrative of “Birtherism.” In fact, Andrew believed, as we do, that President Barack Obama was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, on August 4, 1961.
Yet Andrew also believed that the complicit mainstream media had refused to examine President Obama’s ideological past, or the carefully crafted persona he and his advisers had constructed for him.”Comments »
While the losses are not on the tax payers tab; allowing wild west gambling vs actual hedging is a concern for the country’s banking system and ultimately the tax payer’s piggy bank. Oh let me rephrase; your children’s and grandchildren’s tax responsibility.
Mitt is nothing more than the same old shit rotating in our government halls for 30 years.Comments »

Scott Thompson, PH.d, esq, CEO and Lt. General of Yahoo! and the US Marines-ASSHAT
Despite having three doctorate degress in quantum physics, being a Lt. General in the US marines and a super successful defense attorney for the world’s largest charity, Scott Thompson is a fucking ASSHAT because he works for Yahoo. There is so much to be said about Scotty and I contemplated posting this under my blog, instead of news; but that would cheapen the severity of my charge, wouldn’t it?
This is NEWS, fuckers, and Scotty is a lying cocksucker, who believes his fancy pants degrees and high brow position at charities and militaries makes him better than the rest of us.
I am siding with Daniel Loeb and calling for the immediate removal of Mr. Thompson and nominate myself to run Yahoo. I’ll teach those fuckers how to dominate again, through sheer violence and outright belligerency.Comments »
