Stop Coddling the Super-Rich

August 16, 2011 by legitgov

Stop Coddling the Super-Rich By Warren E. Buffett 15 Aug 2011 Our leaders have asked for "shared sacrifice." But when they did the asking, they spared me. I checked with my mega-rich friends to learn what pain they were expecting. They, too, were left untouched. While the poor and middle class fight for us in Afghanistan, and while most Americans struggle to make ends meet, we mega-rich continue to get our extraordinary tax breaks. ...[F]or those making more than $1 million -- there were 236,883 such households in 2009 -- I would raise rates immediately on taxable income in excess of $1 million, including, of course, dividends and capital gains.

Top Tabloid Editors Endorsed Hacking, Letter Says

August 16, 2011 by legitgov

Top Tabloid Editors Endorsed Hacking, Letter Says 17 Aug 2011 A high-profile parliamentary panel investigating phone hacking at Rupert Murdoch's now defunct News of the World tabloid released new allegations Tuesday suggesting that, despite assertions to the contrary by the newspaper's owners and editors, the practice of intercepting voice mail was "widely discussed" at the newspaper... The correspondence, made public by the House of Commons select committee on culture, media and sport, is likely to embarrass former senior officials in the Murdoch empire who denied that phone-hacking was widely practiced, as well as Prime Minister David Cameron, who hired one former editor of The News of the World, Andy Coulson, as his director of communications.

UK riots: magistrates told 'ignore the rule book' and lock up rioters

August 16, 2011 by legitgov

UK riots: magistrates told 'ignore the rule book' and lock up rioters --Magistrates have been told that they can ignore sentencing guidelines and hand down more draconian penalties to rioters and looters. 15 Aug 2011 Courts are being advised that the scale of last week's civil disobedience means that offences committed during the riots should be dealt with more harshly. The memo, sent late last week by the capital's most senior justice clerks, led one magistrate to warn that any offenders involved in the "anarchy" can expect a prison sentence. Magistrates appear to have heeded the message, as figures released by the Ministry of Justice last night disclosed that two in three people charged in connection with the riots and looting have been remanded in custody.

Official: BART justified in cutting cell phone service, may do it again 15 Aug 2011 The threat of spreading protests prompted transit officials in San Francisco to successively close and reopen several key downtown subway stations on Monday... Meanwhile, an official with the system stood by the decision to shut off cell phone service ahead of a protest last week and did not rule out a similar move in response to the planned demonstration Monday. Linton Johnson, BART's chief communications officer, said officials may again suspend cell phone service on the station's platform level on Monday. [Anti-Sec and Anonymous: WHY is BART still operating? Get busy!]

A portion of busy Market Street was also shut down as crowds moved east, waving placards and shouting "No Justice, No Peace!" The protest began after 5 p.m. at the busy Civic Center Station, where crowds converged for a demonstration that was sparked, in part, by the shootings of Charles Blair Hill and Oscar Grant by BART police.

[LOL!] In his social fightback speech the Prime Minister announced he wanted to roll out the voluntary National Citizen Service scheme as part of the government's effort to 'reclaim the country's streets'.

Pakistan 'gave China access' to downed US helicopter 15 Aug 2011 Pakistan let Chinese military engineers photograph and take samples from the US helicopter that was left behind when American special forces killed Osama bin Laden, it has been reported. If true, the claim would underline the deterioration in US-Pakistani relations since the [illegal US] raid in May in Abbottabad. Members of the Chinese military were allowed to survey the wreckage of the hi-tech helicopter and take samples of its "stealth" skin, which allowed it to enter Pakistan undetected by radar, the Financial Times reported, quoting US sources.

Mushrooms Join Growing List of Radioactive Threats to Japan's Food Chain 14 Aug 2011 Mushrooms joined the threats to Japan's food chain from radiation spewed by Tokyo Electric Power Co.'s Fukushima Dai-Ichi nuclear plant.

Half of Japan's rice is grown within range of emissions from the crippled nuclear plant.

Iraq: US pullout will improve security 14 Aug 2011 Iraq's Vice President Tareq al-Hashemi says a continued US military presence in the country is "a problem, not a solution," adding that their year-end pullout will improve Iraq's security.

Ex-Minn. Gov. Tim Pawlenty ends White House bid 14 Aug 2011 Former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty dropped out of the race for the GOP presidential nomination on Sunday, hours after finishing a disappointing third in the Iowa straw poll. The low-key Midwesterner and two-term governor had struggled to gain traction in a state he had said he must win and never caught fire nationally with a Republican electorate seemingly craving a charismatic, nonestablishment, rabble-rouser Grade 'A' sociopath to go up against [Wall Street/CIA troll] President Barack Obama.
