The Barack Obama administration. Boooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If you missed it, Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta says Iraq is agreeing to keep troops beyond 2011. C.I. covers it and then some in the snapshot today (which I repost in full at the end of my entry) and you can also read Jason Ditz' write up here.
Barack's disgusting. He just the worst liar in the world and a War Hawk, we need to send him back to Chicago in the 2012 elections.
Joseph Kishore (WSWS) reports:
The only reason that the official unemployment rate is not much higher than the current 9.1 percent is because millions of people have given up looking for work or no longer qualify for unemployment benefits. In cities like Detroit, real unemployment is as high as 50 percent.
An entire generation of young people is entering the labor force with no prospect of gaining a decent-paying job. According to the latest Kids Count study, 31 percent of children throughout the country—or 32.1 million children, up 2.9 million from a year before—lived in families where no parent had a full-time, year round job in 2009. This figure is 47 percent for African Americans.
These conditions are set to get much worse. Among a number of bleak economic indicators driving the financial markets down sharply on Thursday was a jump in weekly unemployment claims back above 400,000, a sign of a deteriorating jobs market.
Are you afraid I forgot idiot of the week?
I didn't. This week it's an idiot and a real pig. Need a hint?
Yeah, it's the pig Danny Schechter. He's a sexist pig. He lives in fear that anyone will ever tell why Aliza Dichter walked off of MediaChannel -- which she founded, not Pig Danny. He also couldn't hack it at Topic A magazine because he couldn't get along with a woman (not Tina Brown). He's a pig. And guess what the pig did?
Click here and you have his ZNet article this week. Kind of.
See, the title's been changed. If you click here, you've got Google cache but that won't last forever.
Which will allow him to deny what he did.
Except . . . I took a little screen snap.
He's the one focused on Michele Bachmann's clothes. That's really got nothing to do with his article but everything to do with his extreme sexism and hatred of women.
He's a pig.
And a pig who thinks he can spit on women? Well that's Idiot of the Week material.
How long do you think he'll be able to keep his secrets. I got a feeling someone's going to knock over his trash can and all those little secrets are going to be all over the street.
Here's C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot:"
