The new poor -- the middle-aged

" The new poor -- the middle-aged

Bob Herbert, New York Times Service
Tuesday, August 10, 2004

I SUPPOSE there are people who still believe that enormous tax cuts for the very wealthy will lead to the creation of millions of good jobs for working people. In the twilight of his first term, the president, stumping for votes in regions scarred by the demon of unemployment, continues to sing from the tattered pages of his economic hymnbook:

"The economy is strong," he says again and again and again, "and it's growing stronger."

At a riverfront rally under cloudy skies in Davenport, Iowa, last week, Bush told a crowd of 5,000, "We are turning the corner and we're not going back."

In another four years, he says, "The economy will be better."

His tax cuts, he insists, couldn't have been better timed.

The true believers were jolted Friday by the news from the Bureau of Labor Statistics that employers added a meager 32,000 jobs in July. In an economy the size of America's, that's roughly equivalent to no jobs at all.

July's poor job-creation performance was widely described as unexpected. But it's important to keep in mind that it didn't occur in a vacuum and that there is no quick fix coming. American workers are hurting.

"The weak job market continues to put downward pressure on wage growth," said Jared Bernstein, a senior economist at the Economic Policy Institute in Washington. He noted that nominal wage growth on a year-over-year basis has been decelerating even as inflation is increasing, which is bad news for an economy so dependent on consumer spending.

In a report released by the institute on Friday, Bernstein wrote, "These job and wage dynamics erode workers' buying power, and this has negative implications for the strength of the recovery."

Retail sales in July were disappointing, hampered by high gasoline prices as well as anemic wage growth. And the stock market is in a prolonged swoon.

Despite the rosy rhetoric that comes nonstop from the administration, millions upon millions of American families, including many who consider themselves solidly in the middle class, are in deep economic trouble. Friday's Wall Street Journal featured a page-one article with the ominous headline "New Group Swells Bankruptcy Court: The Middle-Aged."

Personal bankruptcy filings in the United States are at an all-time high. The Journal story focused on "an emerging class of middle-age, white-collar Americans who make the grim odyssey from comfortable circumstances to going broke." Among the villains of this disturbing piece are the unstable job market and staggering amounts of personal debt.

It's getting harder and harder to close our eyes to the growing economic devastation. Elizabeth Warren, a Harvard law professor and co-author of "The Two-Income Trap: Why Middle-Class Mothers and Fathers Are Going Broke," wrote in 2003:

"This year, more people will end up bankrupt than will suffer a heart attack. More adults will file for bankruptcy than will be diagnosed with cancer. More people will file for bankruptcy than will graduate from college. And, in an era when traditionalists decry the demise of the institution of marriage, Americans will file more petitions for bankruptcy than for divorce." "
=======SNIP================
This is an EXCELLENT article and I want to personally take my hat off to Bob Herbert, New York Times Service . Mr. Herbert really tells it like it is here.

This just underscores what regular readers of this blog have heard me say over and over and over, despite the BIG LIE being drummed through major media outlets daily. There is a giant hole in our economy and the guts are falling out with increasing speed day after day.

 

Austin superintendent says district lacks money to meet state demands

"Austin superintendent says district lacks money to meet state demands
AdvertisementBy Jason Embry

AMERICAN-STATESMAN STAFF

Tuesday, August 10, 2004

The Austin school district cannot raise the money it needs to meet the state's increasing demands on students, Superintendent Pat Forgione said today.

Forgione, the first witness in a lawsuit challenging the state's school-finance system, said the district does not have the money to help all students pass statewide tests beyond third grade.

"I'm worried we're going to have a revolution on our hands," he said. "I'm worried we're going to have parents say, 'You're punishing my child because you're giving them a test they're not ready for.' "

For the past two years, Texas has required third-graders to pass the reading section of the Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills before passing to fourth grade. This year, fifth-graders will have to pass the reading and math sections of the test.

Four percent of Austin third-graders failed the reading test earlier this year and face having to stay put. But 23 percent of fifth-graders failed the reading test and 22 percent failed math, he said.district lacks money to meet state demands"

But (he asked timidly), how can this be? The economy is going great according to Bushy...remember that "steady growth" speech.
So how can this be. Could BUSH be LYING???????

BRUSSELS, Belgium — A Belgian airliner made an emergency landing after an agitated passenger — a cat — got into the cockpit and attacked the co-pilot, the airline said Tuesday.

The SN Brussels flight from the Belgian capital to Vienna, Austria, had been in the air about 20 minutes Monday when "it was noticed" that a passenger's pet had escaped from its cage, "although it is not yet clear how," according to an airline statement.

"Once free, the animal proceeded to wander around the cabin," slipping into the cockpit when meals were being delivered to the two-man flight crew, it said.

"At this stage the animal became agitated and nervous," it said. An airline spokeswoman added that the cat scratched the copilot's arm."

DRAFT RIOTS FEARED

"Draft Riots Feared

No Matter Who Wins in November, Draft Will Return



By Mike Blair



Regardless of the outcome of next November’s presidential election, the federal government will initiate a military draft in 2005, unless there is a dramatic slackening of the need for U.S. troops for the ongoing war in Iraq and for “peacekeeping” duties around the world.

Last June, the Senate overwhelmingly passed a bill to increase the size of the Army by 20,000 persons, and a month earlier the House voted to add 30,000 soldiers and 9,000 Marines by 2007.

If current trends continue, several military experts have told American Free Press, voluntary enlistments will not even dent the number of troops America will need for its global over-commitments.

What is going to happen in late August at the Republican National Convention in New York City many will see as a precursor of what will take place when the nation starts drafting young men, and perhaps even women, for the military.

It is expected that hundreds of thousands of demonstrators will converge upon New York to protest the Bush administration’s involvement in Iraq, a situation that may become similar to what happened in Chicago in 1968, when the Vietnam War and the selection of Vice President Hubert Humphrey for the presidency at the Democratic convention there sparked massive protests that turned violent.

There are already signs that there will be massive ."

 

China Rapidly Modernizes for War With U.S.

"Alexandr Nemets
Newsmax/Tuesday, Aug. 10, 2004

During the last several months, there have been numerous hints in the Chinese and Taiwanese media indicating that war is more likely than believed here in the West.

Some strategists suggest that the 2008 Olympics scheduled for Beijing constitute a key benchmark, after which a war may be possible.

However, it is clear that both nations are preparing for a conflict in the near term, and that 2008 may not be as pivotal as some experts believe.

In fact, China's media have been repeating the mantra in their news reports that the People's Liberation Army is preparing to gain a victory in this “internal military conflict in a high-tech environment.”

Chinese war planners have studied carefully the recent U.S.-Iraq War, a war that demonstrated to PLA strategists that U.S. military might is derived from its technological superiority.

China's military experts conducted similar studies after America's first Gulf War. One military study written by two Chinese colonels entitled “Unrestricted Warfare” suggested that China could not compete with America's technological prowess.

Instead, China had to develop “asymmetrical” warfare to defeat the U.S. in any conflict. Interestingly, “Unrestricted Warfare” became an instant best seller in China after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. In the 1998 book, the Chinese colonels suggested that a successful bombing by Osama bin Laden of the World Trade Center would be an example of this new “unrestricted warfare” concept."
========SNIP============
China has more standing troops than any nation in the world. Our country is fast becoming dependent (due to the Great WALl o' china MART) to Chinese goods and services. We are becoming a consuming nation and they are a producing nation. Look at your electronic goods, and just about everything you buy at Wal*Mart (aka the Great Wall of China Mart). See where these items are made?

We are getting our butt kicked economically by the Chinese. The Chinese have long made war, martial arts, and strategies, a science AND an art. This is a very serious threat!

 

They Don't Know Why Rick James Died

"August 10, 2004 10:00 AM - A weekend autopsy on the body of Rick James (news), who died in his sleep on Friday morning (8/6) at his Los Angeles home, failed to turn up the cause of the soul artist's death.
James' three children, via a statement issued by a publicist, said they believe their father died of heart failure. The Los Angeles County Coroner's office reportedly is awaiting results of toxicology tests to determine whether James--who had a history of drug abuse before he cleaned up in the wake of legal and health problems--had any drugs in his system that may have contributed to his death. Results of the tests may not be available for up to 10 weeks.

Though he was just 56 years old at the time of his death, James was not in good health. He had diabetes, he suffered a stroke in 1998 and he wore a pacemaker."

$419m share offer to settle two Yahoo! lawsuits

"Google said it would give rival Yahoo! shares potentially worth more than $US300 million ($419 million) to settle two lawsuits, addressing one cloud hanging over the internet company's planned initial public offering.

In return for giving Yahoo! 2.7million of its shares, Google will receive a perpetual licence to Yahoo!'s patented technology for matching online advertisements to web search results.

Google generates a majority of its revenue from such advertising. It said it would record a non-cash expense of $US260million to $US290million in the third quarter as a result of the settlement, which will cause the company to post a loss.

As part of the settlement, Yahoo! agreed to drop a separate suit related to a dispute over share warrants that Google granted it under a partnership signed in 2000.

The ad-matching technology at issue was developed by Overture Services, which sued Google in 2002.


Yahoo! acquired Overture and its patents last year, and continued the lawsuit.

Google had argued that its own system for matching ads and search results did not infringe Yahoo!'s patent and challenged the validity of the patent.

The settlement removes a significant element of uncertainty surrounding Google in the run-up to its planned IPO, which sources expect to hit the market next week."

High Schoolers: Military Draft Will Resume

"Associated Press


WASHINGTON - Most U.S. high-school students believe the government will restart the military draft during their lifetimes, and shrinking numbers are optimistic about the country's future, a new poll finds.

Among teenagers, 55 percent say young Americans will be required to serve in the military, up from 45 percent last year, according to "The State of Our Nation's Youth," an annual survey by the Horatio Alger Association.

During the year between polls - May 2003 to May 2004 - U.S. casualties mounted during attacks in Iraq even after President Bush declared on May 1, 2003, that major combat had ended.

Former President Nixon halted the draft in 1973. Pentagon leaders and numerous generals and admirals have said it should not be resumed because the volunteer military is more efficient. Critics including Democratic presidential nominee John Kerry have accused the Pentagon of engaging in a "backdoor draft" to compensate for manpower shortages in Iraq with wholesale mobilizations National Guard and Reserve units and other retention tactics.

In the poll, respondents were asked their views of a mandatory military service requirement of two years, and 70 percent of students were opposed."
=========SNIP============
See earlier post on the draft riots of 1863

 

Learn for the Past, or Repeat It!

We hear more rumblings daily that this country might reinstitute conscription, i.e. the military draft. Back in the early 70s, I was in the draft that could have, theoretically, ended up with me going to Viet Nam. I had friends who went to Nam and one of my best friends in college was there using his GI loan from Nam. Like Kerry said, my friend in confidence told me that acts of atrocities went on regularly on both sides of the conflict.

So, if the draft IS reinstated, will young folks just bend over and go willingly?

I think we should look back at what happened in 1863 in New York. Those who saw the movie, Gangs of New York, may remember that the draft and civil war were an underlying theme, and at the end, there was a riot caused by people opposing the draft.

" By the time the names of the first draftees were drawn in New York City on July 11, reports about the carnage of Gettysburg had been published in city papers. Lincoln's call for 300,000 more young men to fight a seemingly endless war frightened even those who supported the Union cause. Moreover, the Enrollment Act contained several exemptions, including the payment of a "commutation fee" that allowed wealthier and more influential citizens to buy their way out of service."

Hmmm...a seemingly endless war that demands more and more young bodies for sacrifice. This sounds familiar nowadays. And,low and behold, rich kids could buy their way of the draft. Reminds me of a guy who used his dad's power and money to weasel a position in the "chamgagne" group, and MAY have been AWOL for a year.
"On Sunday, June 12, the names of the draftees drawn the day before by the Provost Marshall were published in newspapers. Within hours, groups of irate citizens, many of them Irish immigrants, banded together across the city. Eventually numbering some 50,000 people, the mob terrorized neighborhoods on the East Side of New York for three days looting scores of stores. Blacks were the targets of most attacks on citizens; several lynchings and beatings occurred. In addition, a black church and orphanage were burned to the ground.
All in all, the mob caused more than $1.5 million of damage. The number killed or wounded during the riot is unknown, but estimates range from two dozen to nearly 100. Eventually, Lincoln deployed combat troops from the Federal Army of the Potomac to restore order; they remained encamped around the city for several weeks. In the end, the draft raised only about 150,000 troops throughout the North, about three-quarters of them substitutes, amounting to just one-fifth of the total Union force."

Now, is there ANYONE who believes that if draft riots happened in NYC nowadays, that the military would be called in to deal with this, and does anyone doubt that martial law would be declared ? If so, read Gen. Tommy Franks comments in Cigar Afficianado Magazine, or his more recent comments in the media.

And, from http://www.infoplease.com/ce6/history/A0816049.html
"draft riots, in the American Civil War, mob action to protest unfair Union conscription. The Union Conscription Act of Mar. 3, 1863, provided that all able-bodied males between the ages of 20 and 45 were liable to military service, but a drafted man who furnished an acceptable substitute or paid the government $300 was excused. A defective piece of legislation enforced amid great unpopularity, it provoked nationwide disturbances that were most serious in New York City, where for four days (July 13–16, 1863) there occurred large-scale, bloody riots. Many elements in New York sympathized with the South, and the war had aggravated long-standing economic and social grievances. Aroused by the statements of Gov. Horatio Seymour and other Democratic leaders that the conscription act was unconstitutional, the populace was incited to action. Laborers, mostly Irish-Americans, made up the bulk of a tremendous mob that overpowered the police and militia, attacked and seized the Second Ave. armory containing rifles and guns, and set fire to buildings. Abolitionists and blacks were especially singled out for attack. Many blacks were beaten to death, and a black orphanage was burned, leaving hundreds of children homeless. Business ceased, and robbing and looting flourished. Since the conscription provision that allowed the rich to buy exemption was especially resented, the Tammany city government voted to pay the necessary $300 for anyone who might be drafted. Meanwhile, New York troops (including the famous 7th Regiment, which had been sent to the front for the Gettysburg campaign) were rushed back, and with the aid of the police, militia, naval forces, and cadets from West Point, they succeeded in restoring order. President Lincoln supported a Democratic-dominated commission that investigated the draft in New York, while Governor Seymour urged both adherence to the conscription act and a court test of its constitutionality (which never came about). In August the draft was peacefully resumed. The privilege of buying one's way out of service was limited (1864) to conscientious objectors. The riots had inflicted property damage of $1.5 million to $2 million, and it has been estimated that total casualties ran as high as 1,000."

Now, disregarding the racial aspects, what we see is that a great deal of property damagem was done. Almost a third of the people killed in 9/11, died during this riot.
In the movie Gangs of New York, the clear message is sent out is that the troops were sent in there to shoot civilians first, and ask questions later. They were basically told that, at least during their first occupation of the streets, take no prisoners. Given the high numbers killed in a relatively short time frame in an American city, dealing with civlians, this gives more support to this idea.

Again, the past CAN be a guide, a cautionary tale for the future, but ONLY if one pays heed to the lessons that can be learned from the past.

 

Bush names Florida Congressman Porter Goss to head CIA

"WASHINGTON : US President George W. Bush nominated Porter Goss, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee and himself a former spy, to head and reform the Central Intelligence Agency.

Goss's appointment comes a month after former director George Tenet resigned after a stormy seven years at the helm marked by failure to predict the September 11, 2001 attacks and promises that there were weapons of mass destruction in Iraq."

Defense cites 'US torture' as German Sept 11 retrial begins

"HAMBURG, Germany : Defense lawyers for the only man convicted over the September 11, 2001 attacks called on the opening day of his retrial for the case to be quashed on the grounds key witnesses had likely been tortured.

Attorney Udo Jacob said Tuesday that any statements made by two leading members of Osama bin Laden's Al-Qaeda network believed to be in US custody had likely been made under duress, tainting any evidence they might provide about the defendant, Moroccan student Mounir El Motassadeq.

"One must assume that (Ramzi) Binalshibh was and may currently be subjected to torture," Jacob told the court in the northern German city of Hamburg, referring to a Yemeni national who has boasted that he masterminded the plot."

Taser Up on Press Release

"Volatility champ Taser (TASR:Nasdaq - news - research) rose 7% Tuesday on the strength of a press release trumpeting follow-on weapons orders by three law-enforcement agencies, one of which it declined to name, and new business with a fourth.

The stock, which boasts 73% short interest and trades with a beta approaching 4, jumped $1.94 to $28.57 on news of the contracts, which Taser said totaled $724,000. Taser common shares have traded for as little as $3.40 and as much as $64.15 over the last 52 weeks.

Taser said police in Glendale, Ariz., ordered 196 weapons, completing the "arming of 351 officers," while the department in Pinellas County, Fla., placed a follow-on order for 176 stun-guns. In Fremont, Calif., the police department ordered 169 guns, and Taser said it got a "substantial follow-on order" from an unnamed agency.

The safety of Scottsdale, Ariz.-based Taser's "conducted energy" guns has been a point of much public debate over the last year, with the company repeatedly denying claims that the weapons don't live up to claims they are "non-lethal" and haven't been adequately tested. "
========SNIP================
Yes, law enforcement agencies ARE using their money to buy these thousand
dollar plus stun guns like they were candy. Citizens really should demand some local accountability in every city, about why departments have abandoned training officers to use hand to hand control techniques in favor of pulling a gun of some time, Taser or Glock, and just shooting people with them.

Ontario's police watchdog called off an investigation yesterday into the weekend death of a Kingston man after an autopsy concluded that police use of a Taser gun played no role in his death.

The Special Investigations Unit, which automatically reviews deaths in which police are involved, had been called in on Sunday after Samuel Truscott, 43, died in Kingston General Hospital."

The idea of NEWS is that you report the UNUSUAL events. Thus, in reporting that here is one death in which the taser was NOT declared legally a cause of death, means it is news because there are more
cases in which a person gets tasered and dies and it DOES play a contributory role, if it is not the proximate cause.

A co-author of the anti-Kerry screed, Unfit for Command: Swift Boat Veterans Speak Out Against John Kerry, is a religious bigot, hatemonger and gay basher who says Islam should be eliminated, calls Senator Hillary Clinton a “lesbo” and says “Ragheads are Boy-Bumpers as clearly as they are Women-Haters.”
“Islam is like a virus,” writes Jerome Corsi who – with longtime GOP operative John O’Neill wrote the book as part of a project financed by Texas Republican contributors with strong ties to President George W. Bush.

“It (Islam) affects the mind,” Corsi writes. “Maybe even better as an analogy, it is a cancer that destroys the body it infects. No doctor would hesitate to eliminate cancer cells from the body.”

Corsi posted these comments on the FreeRepublic.com web site on November 26, 2002. He is a regular contributor to the right-wing website, posting under the screen handle of “jrlc” since 2001."

Time Reporter Held in Contempt Over CIA Leak Case

"
A federal judge held a reporter for Time magazine in contempt of court Monday for refusing to testify before a grand jury investigating the leak of the identity of a covert CIA officer.
In an order issued July 20 but not made public until Monday, U.S. District Judge Thomas F. Hogan ruled that Time's Matthew Cooper and Meet the Press host Tim Russert were required to testify "regarding alleged conversations they had with a specified executive branch official."

NBC News issued a statement saying that Russert already had been interviewed under oath by prosecutors on Saturday under an agreement to avoid a protracted court fight. The interview concerned a July 2003 phone conversation he had with Vice President Cheney's chief of staff, Lewis "Scooter" Libby.

Time and Cooper, however, did not agree to be interviewed and intend to appeal the judge's ruling, said Managing Editor Jim Kelly. If Time loses those appeals, Cooper could be jailed under Hogan's order until he agrees to appear and the magazine could be fined $1,000 a day.

"We are disappointed in the decision," Kelly said. "We don't think a journalist should be required to give up a confidential source. We're going to appeal it as far as it goes."

Neal Shapiro, president of NBC News, said the network agreed ."
