Buffy Sainte-Marie America the Beautiful

What is beautiful is the land and people – that’s what she celebrates in this version. Buffy is always good and this is worth a listen.

America the Beautiful

It’s about America the country, not America the nation state. It’s about the real America that so many people, regardless of their political associations, really feel in their hearts-you know, this beautiful, beautiful place.

Read on – comedy, or comic opera – maybe Marx Brothers’ Night at the Opera comes to mind

The idea that the Taliban is eager to sit down for talks—and it has stated, quite explicitly it is not—is just more ISAF spin, trying to convince us we’re winning the war.Read more at www.registan.net
 

Jesse Ventura: Conspiracy Entertainment for Fear and Profit

Read on and see. Conspiracy Theory is un-reality TV to make a profit for Jesse and to entertain – not educate – you a la the “scary” roller coaster at the amusement park and TV wrestling that gave Jesse his first boost.

Un-TruTV: Fear vs. Fact on Ventura’s ‘Conspiracy Theory’

What Ventura and TruTV call “proof” amounts to little more than recycled and utterly groundless conspiracy theories. He relies on dubious “experts” — actually, fellow conspiracy peddlers whose affiliations are never clearly identified — and utterly ignores real authorities who could easily debunk the claims.

Save that Tiger! Save that Tiger!

Can you guess why urban centers, suburbs and even rural farm areas seem to be over run with what we term pests? Such as coyotes in US. Or mice and rats everywhere. We either killing or destroying breeding grounds of predators!
