Economic Cuts Start at the top...Thats you Congress

The Super Committee and Congress should have to take a cut in their salary! Economic Cuts should look something like this:

Congress should not be paid any more than $30.000 Annually. All raises and bonuses should be based on performance. according to their verified approval rating!

Executive Branch ...Should not be paid more than $60.000 Annually. All raises and bonuses should be based on performance. according to their verified approval rating!

And the President should not be paid more than $100.000 Annually. All raises and bonuses should be based on performance. according to his/her verified approval rating!

Also They should pay for their own fuel for their cars and other personal vehicles. Their business expences should not be paid for by the public they should be responsible for their own hotel accomodations and meals.
They should also be paying for their cellphone and blackberries from their own pocket, there are too many things that the taxpayer has to pay for, with nothing to show for it!!! Congress! You want more money... Do more for the people.


We are are different, But yet everyone is expecting everyone else to act as everyone else. Be normal, But Normal is Average. We are all different, without this division we would be predictable and boring.

MSG 2 Occupiers

The First 12 Hours after the US Dollar Collapse

Who's wrecking America?

Which of the richest 1% are using their wealth and power to keep down the other 99%? Vote now. We'll make videos exposing the ones that you choose.

The Occupy movement has drawn attention to how too many in the 1% get to play by their own rules while exploiting the 99%. But who's doing the most to damage our economy and democracy?You tell us.We at Brave New Foundation have launched a website where you can vote on some of the most infamous members of the 1% -- financial fraudsters, union-busters, weapons contractors, and more. Then we'll make a series of videos exposing the ones that you rank as the very worst. As our friends at Fox News might put it: We film. You decide.Let's look at some examples. Lloyd Blankfein, the head of Goldman Sachs, is one of our nominees. He touted mortgage assets to clients while privately betting $10 billion they'd fail. Then he lied to Congress by claiming that Goldman Sachs had not, in fact, bet against its own clients. These actions helped spur the excessive risk-taking that led to the financial meltdown and put millions out of a job.Or take a look at Paul Singer, who has earned the nickname "the vulture capitalist." He exploits poor nations by buying their defaulted debt for cheap and forcing them to pay in full--plus interest. The Congo was one of Singer's victims. That country had just gotten out of a civil war and half of its citizens live on less than a dollar a day. To Singer, that was a business opportunity. He bought the Congo's debt for pennies on the dollar and then sued to win far, far more than he had paid for it.
Of course, simply bandying names about isn't the point. The point is that the activists fueling social movements like Occupy need to be able to understand exactly how oppression works and which individuals are controlling the process. Where would our nation be if, in the civil rights movement of the 1950s and 60s, activists had spoken only of the systemic issue of segregation and didn't have George Wallace and Bull Connor to single out as perpetrators? We at Brave New Foundation are helping build a narrative so that citizens can draw a straight line between the cheats and bullies misusing their wealth and the economic predicament in which our country is now ensnared.We aren't alone in this effort. Our partners include progressive media truth tellers like AlterNet, TruthOut, the Nation, PoliticsUSA, CARE2, the Center for Media and Democracy, the Young Turks, Campaign for America's Future, Free Speech TV, Thom Hartmann, and who do you think deserves to be exposed? Vote and make your voice heard. With the Occupy movement at a critical point, this is the moment to double down on illuminating our nation's vast inequalities and--just as important--how things got this way. This is a chance to take our democracy back.

Russia threatons use of Nuclear weapons

In a November 17th speech to Russia’s parliament, General Nikolai Makarov, chief of the General Staff of the Russian armed forces, spoke of concerns over NATO’s expansion eastward and stated that the risks of Russia being pulled into local conflicts have “risen sharply.”Countries who previously were members of the Warsaw Pact and have since become NATO members include Poland, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania. Russia also has deeply strained relations with Georgia after a 2008 war over two disputed provinces. Georgia is seeking NATO membership. Ukraine, at one point indicated its plans to align with Western powers, but it is now ruled by a pro-Russia president, and its liberal opposition leader has been imprisoned.
