Corrected DL info for 12/17/14

My apologies everyone here is the correction. I did not mean to put Ayn Rand in this message and it is out of context with the original article. So here are the corrections corrections.

This makes me want to go postal. The privatization scam continues! Richard Wolff writes "Going beyond Private versus Public" http://truth-out.org/opinion/item/27838-going-beyond-private-versus-public

Objectivism vs Morality: Ayn Rand's Black and White binary philosophy has no room for altruism, a very important aspect of compassion, love etc. It is the philosophy of rational self- interest (selfishness) Her influence was very powerful for the computer nerds in the Silicone valley as Adam Curtis BBC blog Documentary pointed out. http://youtu.be/viGkAZR-x8s

DL meeting 12/17/14

Hello everyone the meeting will be held at the Orchard Restaurant inside of the Double Tree Hotel in Claremont on Foothill Blvd. We still haven't made plans for the Xmas celebration but it frankly does not matter to me, it is more than about games and the like. Thomas Stubbs Here are some topics that might be interesting to those who do not live in the ivory tower.

Republican whore Rep Andy Harris wins the day for being corrupt overturning a legalization of Marijuana law. https://www.facebook.com/CherylShumanInc/photos/a.189058611117624.41606.124786130878206/835509026472576/?type=1

Justice for All Rally: Headed by Rev. Al Sharpton. Washington DC, 12/13/14 One man stood before the large rally and asked "How many of the black people in this rally get nervous when getting pulled over by the police?" Many hands were raised. He then asked "How many of the white participants get nervous when pulled over by the police?" Many of the hands were raised in response.
I think that if you are poor, whether black or white, there is no recourse for those who cannot afford justice. In many parts of this country the race to poverty ratio are considerable, most of the lower income people in this rather racist country happen to be people of color. The man who spoke the above words was shot for reaching for his ID in his truck as requested (actually demanded) by the officer. The youtube video of this event went viral a few weeks back. The officer made the demand and the man being asked obeyed and got shot for it. The only visible thing here is that the man was shot for being black and owning a truck.

Are we going to have an X-Mas this year? Where?

Matt Taibbi on the lack of legitimacy of police after the Garner case before the grand jury. Who really needs to be arrested and prosecuted a man selling cigarettes or the banksters on Wall Street? http://readersupportednews.org/opinion2/277-75/27371-the-police-in-america-are-becoming-illegitimate

Are the DINO's (Democrats in Name only) like this too? http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2014/12/noam-chomsky-republicans-dedicated-with-utter-servility-to-the-needs-of-the-1-percent/

DL Meeting 12/03/14 Hello everyone The meeting will take place at the Orchard Restaurant inside the Double Tree Hotel in Claremont on Foothill Blvd from 7-9:30 pm.
Here are some topics.

Insanity! Like corporatocracy does whenever it can get away with it, is to fast track a "free-trade agreement" (TPP, TISA, NAFTA etc) that can sidestep our constitution (that is the rights of everyone else). Corporations do not have the right to make decisions without the population that is to be gravely affected, knowledge of that criminal act. The fact that this is being done in secret makes it typically all that more creepy. Corporatocracy will in affect be the defacto world government if this passes. The failure of globalization will continue to get to be an even bigger disaster. The Washington consensus (Neoliberalism) has failed everywhere it was tested. Phone your representative or things will get worse. Call your Congrees person!I did! !http://ralphnaderradiohour.libsyn.com/lori-wallach-solar-power-war-talk

We subsidize large corporations more than we do defense, FEMA, unemployment insurance, SNAP, welfare for people, retirement disability and medicare combined. This is called Corporate welfare! For a $50,000 per year tax payer $6000.00 goes to corporate welfare. I know it is old news but it is worthy of reminding everyone.

After reading a chapter called the Prophets in "Goliath: Life and Loathing in Greater Israel" by Max Blumenthal, I had to post this. Yeshayahu Leibowitz predicted what would happen to Israel given the colonialism that is in the process of land grabs, torture and murder of the native inhabitants of Israel. He referred to the Israeli Zionists as becoming "Judao-Nazi's. It is so true and he was highly respected until his death despite the truth he offered. He was a founding member of the Meritz Party, there is A US branch of this group I would like to find out about. Why did they not take his advice? Here's the link http://youtu.be/bXw4Zv7qA8c

DL Meeting 11/26/14 Hello everyone The meeting will take place at the Orchard Restaurant inside the Double Tree Hotel in Claremont on Foothill Blvd from 7-9:30 pm. I realize that some of you will be vacation so I narrowed the potential topics down so you have time to ruminate over the holidays on why you are thankful.

Should we change the name to Living or Laughing Liberally?

The CIA has a long and sordid history of torture starting back with Dr Cameron who was financed by the CIA in Canada to experiment on innocent civilians according to Naomi Klein in her book "The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism". I think that the CIA torture records should be opened up. What is your opinion? http://www.justforeignpolicy.org/act/Udall-CIA-torture-report
