Fukushima radiation released equal to more than 29 'Hiroshima-type atomic bombs' 18 Aug 2011 "How much radioactive materials have been released from the [Daiichi nuclear power] plant?" asked Dr Tatsuhiko Kodama, a professor at the Research Centre for Advanced Science and Technology and Director of the University of Tokyo's Radioisotope Centre, in a July 27 speech to the Committee of Health, Labour and Welfare at Japan's House of Representatives.

August 18, 2011 by legitgov

White House, Senate Democrats clash over campaign cash 18 Aug 2011 Senate Democrats are increasingly concerned that President Barack Obama's campaign money machine is sucking up so much cash that it will cut into the party's aggressive campaign to hold on to the Senate next year, several Democratic sources say. Democratic senators have already pressed Obama campaign officials - including campaign manager Jim Messina - not to lock up the richest Democratic donors, but the presidential campaign declined to make such a promise. [Right, Wall Street troll Obama WANTS to turn the Senate over to the GOP, as well - so all three branches of government will be in Republican hands. Also, notice that the only fight Obusha has -- is with *Democrats?* --LRP]

Perry Says Fed Spending Before Election Almost 'Treasonous' 16 Aug 2011 Texas Governor Rick Perry, finishing his first full day of campaigning for the U.S. Republican presidential nomination in Iowa, said it would be "almost treacherous -- or treasonous" for Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S.

Stop Coddling the Super-Rich

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.
