Why does he go to bed at night trying to figure out how to increase farmers? How do the President and other cabinet members view Vilsack's role as the nation's farming czar? What could be the most important contribution that increasing farmers could offer to the nation? Better food? Better soil development? Better care for animals? Better care for plants?
Are you ready? Here's his answer: although rural America only has 16 percent of the population, it gives 40 percent of the personnel to the military. Say what? You mean when it's all said and done, at the end of the day, the bottom line -- you know all the cliches -- the whole reason for increasing farms is to provide cannon fodder for American imperial might. He said rural kids grow up with a sense of wanting to give something back, and if we lose that value system, we'll lose our military might.
"Hugh Grant as PM, even after a lobotomy, would without any doubt run rings round our red-faced, bullying, compassionless, educated-well-beyond-his-intelligence, over-privileged, over-fed, pathological liar of and pathetic excuse for a Prime Minister."
Can someone on NPR interview Maher Arar, again?
We don't even go after the Godwinning...

"The scariest movie I've seen this year, a horror tale that would have been science fiction had it been made in the 1990s." These are not words to describe the latest zombie or slasher flick, but the description by G. Allen Johnson of the San Francisco Chronicle, in describing "Terms and Conditions May Apply", a new documentary about Internet privacy and the use of consumer information platforms like Facebook and Google for government surveillance. Included are a range of discussions from personalities as diverse as Raymond Kurzweil, Moby and Mark Zuckerberg. The preview trailer at on the film's website is a great 2 minute primer on the subject, for general audiences, and the film's producers provide links to privacy tools, including instructions for leaving Facebook and removing Google personalization.
"Simply stated the DEA's story (and they're sticking to it) is this: Operating from hide-outs in the mountains of Sinaloa and million-acre ranches in the Sonora desert, goes this narrative, with bandoliers loaded with spare ammunition strapped across their bare chests, Mexican drug lords direct the worldwide drug trade.
