Irony: Andrew Jackson On a Federal Reserve Note. Karl Golovin, a retired customs agent and security director for Ron Paul’s presidential campaign, just forwarded a transcript of Andrew Jackson’s farewell address.
It’s pretty amazing. Here’s Karl’s intro, followed by an excerpt: “During his presidency, Andrew Jackson viewed as his crowning achievement that he “Killed the Bank,” the 2nd Bank of the U.S. Our current ‘Federal Reserve,’ created in 1913, is the 3rd Bank of the U.S. Jackson was intent upon restoring an honest, Constitutional monetary system. . “. . . .

New App Buycott Lets Users Protest Koch Brothers, Monsanto And More. In her keynote speech at last year’s annual Netroots Nation gathering, Darcy Burner pitched a seemingly simple idea to the thousands of bloggers and web developers in the audience.
The former Microsoft programmer and congressional candidate proposed a smartphone app allowing shoppers to swipe barcodes to check whether conservative billionaire industrialists Charles and David Koch were behind a product on the shelves. Burner figured the average supermarket shopper had no idea that buying Brawny paper towels, Angel Soft toilet paper or Dixie cups meant contributing cash to Koch Industries through its subsidiary Georgia-Pacific. Similarly, purchasing a pair of yoga pants containing Lycra or a Stainmaster carpet meant indirectly handing the Kochs your money (Koch Industries bought Invista, the world’s largest fiber and textiles company, in 2004 from DuPont).
At the time, Burner created a mock interface for her app , but that’s as far as she got.

The capitalist network that runs the world - physics-math - 19 October 2011. AS PROTESTS against financial power sweep the world this week, science may have confirmed the protesters' worst fears.
An analysis of the relationships between 43,000 transnational corporations has identified a relatively small group of companies, mainly banks, with disproportionate power over the global economy. The study's assumptions have attracted some criticism, but complex systems analysts contacted by New Scientist say it is a unique effort to untangle control in the global economy. Pushing the analysis further, they say, could help to identify ways of making global capitalism more stable. The idea that a few bankers control a large chunk of the global economy might not seem like news to New York's Occupy Wall Street movement and protesters elsewhere (see photo). But the study, by a trio of complex systems theorists at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich, is the first to go beyond ideology to empirically identify such a network of power. The Zurich team can. 1.
It's Labor vs. Capital, Stupid. A few months ago Nassim Taleb, author of the Black Swan, an influential book about the crucial importance of unpredictable, unforeseen events on our financial system was asked whether the hundreds of thousands taking to the streets in Greece was a Black Swan event. He replied, “No. The real Black Swan event is that people are not rioting against the banks in London and New York.” They are now. Not rioting perhaps but vigorously protesting. Occupy Wall Street is moving into its second month. From 1980 to 2005, more than 80 percent of the increase in personal incomes went to one percent of the population. In the 1976 movie, Network, anchorman Howard Beale tells his viewers, Things have got to change. We’re mad as hell and we’re not going to take this anymore. We’re mad at the devastation wrought in the last four years by the toxic combination of unrestrained greed and concentrated wealth.
We’re mad at Wall Street for taking our money and giving nothing back. Labor vs. Mr. Yes we do. 1. 2. RevolutionTruth - WikiLeaks and a Truth Revolution. Three Charts to Email to Your Right-Wing Brother-In-Law. Problem: Your right-wing brother-in-law is plugged into the FOX-Limbaugh lie machine, and keeps sending you emails about "Obama spending" and "Obama deficits" and how the "Stimulus" just made things worse.
Solution: Here are three "reality-based" charts to send to him. These charts show what actually happened. Spending Government spending increased dramatically under Bush. It has not increased much under Obama. Deficits Notes, this chart includes Clinton's last budget year for comparison. The numbers in these two charts come from Budget of the United States Government: Historical Tables Fiscal Year 2012. The Stimulus and Jobs In this chart, the RED lines on the left side -- the ones that keep doing DOWN -- show what happened to jobs under the policies of Bush and the Republicans.
It looks a lot like the stimulus reversed what was going on before the stimulus. Conclusion: THE STIMULUS WORKED BUT WAS NOT ENOUGH! More False Things These are just three of the false things that everyone "knows. "
