E.J. Dionne Dubs Obama The Fighting Conciliator

And I love Obama more than ever.

From the Washington Post: The Fighting Conciliator by E.J. Dionne

Monday February 9 2009 page A17

Mr. Dionne writes:

“It took less than three weeks for the real Barack Obama to come into view. He turns out to be both a conciliator and a fighter.

“These are not contradictions in his character. They represent different sides of a politician who sees some issues as more susceptible to compromise than others and who wants his adversaries to know that his easygoing style does not make him a pushover.

“The sudden clarity emerged in the two best speeches of his short presidency and in the ongoing saga of the stimulus bill.

“Obama addressed the National Prayer Breakfast on Thursday with a warning against the use of religion “as a tool to divide us from one another — as an excuse for prejudice and intolerance.”

“Obama did not cite Isaiah’s injunction that we should come and reason together, a favorite biblical passage of Lyndon B. Johnson’s, but it seemed to be on his mind: “For it is only through common struggle and common effort, as brothers and sisters, that we fulfill our highest purpose as beloved children of God.”

“That was in the morning. By evening, when the president spoke to Democratic House members in Williamsburg, he had cast aside his efforts to placate Republicans who had no intention of reasoning with him on the stimulus bill. Obama had turned the other cheek often enough.

“Don’t come to the table with the same tired arguments and worn ideas that helped to create this crisis,” the born-again campaigner thundered. “We are not going to get relief by turning back to the very same policies that, for the last eight years, doubled the national debt and threw our economy into a tailspin.”

“Deploying a preacher’s unapologetically judgmental cadences, Obama denounced “the losing formula that says only tax cuts will work for every problem we face.” He reiterated that argument in his Saturday radio address and will press it in speeches on the road this week.”

The deadly for-profit industry that is so called HIV-AIDS

Filed under: a life worth living,AIDS,be the change,children,health care,HIV,oppression — kimwilsonowen @ 5:10 am

Please, please Mr. President. Please look deeply into the issues surrounding AIDS. Please check out the links below, from the Rethinking AIDS facebook page. We don’t have an AIDS epidemic. AIDS behaves like no credible epidemic. We have an epidemic of AIDS testing– no two tests give the same result, so many normal conditions give false positives that will ruin a person’s life in the blink of an eye– and a targeting of marginalized groups such as African Americans and gays.

Then bring the real scientists and clear communicators involved in the rethinking movement to Washington for a hearing– David Crowe, Peter Duesberg, Kary Mullis inventor of the PCR (DNA test)  technology used to detect HIV who says HIMSELF that it cannot work, David Rasnick, all of those whose loved ones died or babies who were brain damaged or whose mothers died or who could not breastfeed because of the incredibly poor science surrounding our current ‘duh, everybody knows what causes AIDS’ mindset, dangerous AIDS drugs being pushed at tremendous profit to drug companies, and the carelessness of doctors and scientists who care not one whit about ‘the kind of people who get AIDS’–  poor, ethnic, gay, ‘promiscuous’– please Mr. President. Just give it a solid hearing. You could save so many lives. If you aren’t convinced, then at least fund research by both sides, not just the Gallo/CDC side, to finally prove, SCIENTIFICALLY, one way or the other. Please.

Join the cause

“Whenever you hear the consensus of scientists agreeing over something or other, reach for your wallet, because you’re being had. Let’s be clear: the work of science has nothing whatever to do with consensus. Consensus is the business of politics. Science, on the contrary, requires only one investigator who happens to be right, which means that he or she has results that are verifiable by reference to the real world. In science consensus is irrelevant. What is relevant is reproducible results. The greatest scientists in history are great precisely because they broke with the consensus. ” -Michael Chrichton
Start with the documentaries, then move on to the websites to read scientific studies for yourself.
The truth about HIV testing:

Can you imagine receiving a fatal diagnosis without being told the diagnosis is based on an unproven idea and an uncertain test?
Being instructed to take powerful, experimental drugs without being told these drugs compromise health, destroy or suppress functions necessary for life, and were approved for use without adequate testing?
Being informed that you have, or should expect, deadly illnesses without being told that these same illnesses are not considered fatal when they occur in “normal” people?

For anyone who tests HIV positive, getting all the facts is a matter of life and death. The important decisions a person makes should be based on thorough, verifiable data. All of us need and have the right to receive honest and complete information about HIV and AIDS. -Alive and Well
Rethinkers Challenge the Dogmatists
“The best evidence against the HIV hypothesis is that there is no evidence for it. In the vast scientific/medical literature, over 100,000 papers published on HIV/AIDS, we cannot find anywhere in this vast literature, the evidence that HIV causes AIDS, that AIDS is…contagious, or that it’s even sexual transmitted.

If this had been shown that HIV causes AIDS, we should know who these benefactors of humanity are by name, these would be candidates for the Nobel Prize. I challenge you to come up with the names of these individuals…”

-Dr. David Rasnick
Professor of Biology

“If there is evidence that HIV causes AIDS, there should be scientific documents…which demonstrate this fact… There is no such document.”
-Dr. Kary Mullis, Biochemist, 1993 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for the invention of the polymerase chain reaction (PCR)


What you will find in this group is something that no mainstream AIDS group possesses: A scientific basis for its assertions. Go ahead and search the other facebook groups, you will find a lot of things but nothing resembling hard scientific evidence.

A bit more on Freedom Manifesto

Oh, so you read my latest and you want the thoughts I cut out of my anarchy post regarding The Freedom Manifesto: How to Free Yourself from Anxiety, Fear, Mortgages, Money, Guilt, Debt, Government, Boredom, Supermarkets, Bills, Melancholy, Pain, Depression, Work, and Waste?

Okay here they are. They’re brief and trivial, and of course I’ve left out the bits relevant to why I’m suddenly an anarchist again for the first time in 20+ years.

I really recommend the book, and I’d really love online discussion of what you thought would work and wouldn’t work for you and for our culture (he is a Brit after all, and despite their reputation for scrupulous politeness they are notorious nose thumbers, thieves, intemperates and users of foul language).

What I would love to do but I fear won’t work for me:

Moving to the country and inviting friends to stay? Not sure my friends would come. Not sure I’d have any friends. I am not cool enough and not able to provide such hospitality as to bring friends whose lives are as busy and draining as mine to our home on their precious and few days off.  Maybe some day… hopefully before all of our children are too old to run  and play on our vast lawns and meadows and wild gardens…

Quitting voting? Nah. If you don’t get involved, you got nothing to complain about. I’m from the Michael Moore school. Run for office. Start locally. Don’t worry about what people think. Worry about what you believe in. Course starting locally might be a bit easier if one moves to the country…

What did sound good? I paraphrase here because it was a library book and I don’t have it any more.

Kill your television.

Why do you you worry about housework? Invite folks over. Light candles. Enjoy company of guests. Get guests to help with cooking and washing up. Have fun. Stop worrying.

Gardening: Once upon a time there was only drinking, and those old farts working in the garden were boring and pathetic. Now I garden, and I have two joys, gardening and drinking, instead of just one.

(I don’t drink that much, too busy. But it’s a nice thought.)

There you have it. Read the book. Comment so we can discuss.
