What's happening in New Orleans?

From Greg Palast:

Psst! George Bush has a secret

While you Democrats are pounding each other to a pulp in Pennsylvania, the President has snuck back down to New Orleans for a meeting of the NAFTA Three: the Prime Minister of Canada and the President of Mexico.

You’re not supposed to know that – for two reasons:

I've been asked to write on NAFTA but I think Greg has some better insights than I do. The one that I think must be especially galling for Bush? It was meant to showcase the rebuilt city. Oops.

Spocko I love yah!

Are you the guy who did the campaign against a talk radio show that was more far right than Sharon and Hitler combined?

If so, hats off to yah!

By the by, I get about 100-500 readers per day, 5 million per day is Daily Kos numbers :-)

Feel free to post on my blog and link to your own blog in the comments.

Also, especially if you disagree with my controversial(?) views, post away.

I find that for every 100-200 people who visit my blog, I get about 1 measly comment if that :-)

So I am reading your comment on Digby's blog and... did I say.....today... that I love yah (platonically, ugh!).


Wanna make my "job" easier?

Write a short article on your epic win at the Radio Rwanda radiostation, or perhaps I will just ruthlessly copy and paste your previous stuff into my blog.

But would be cool if you would be the first guest blogger.

You could start with:
Hi, I am spocko and this is my story!

Reaching Spocko is no mean feat, just look at all the phones wasted to avoid right wing machetes:

But really a lot of these phones are made with an alloy of coltran, which partly is the cause of war in the Congo by Rwanda. There was a great chapter on this in "A Game as Old as Empire: The Secret World of Economic Hit Men and the Web of Global Corruption."

One supposes it was galling to someone in Dear Leader's entourage that New Orleans has not become a Red city showcase for success of the free market.

But Dubya? One concludes he doesn't notice much.

Please Join Anti-Genocide Activists To Rally VISA, 2008 Olympics Sponsor

When: Friday, May 16, 4PM

What: California activists will urge VISA to press the government of China to use its influence with the Government of Sudan to ensure there is security for civilians in Darfur before the Olympic Games begin.

Why: Darfur advocates are targeting VISA as one of 16 out of 19 Beijing Olympics sponsors with the power to pressure the government of China, who has not responded to prior activists' requests to do so.
