 Theresa Mitchell with the "news you're not supposed to know" Theresa Mitchell with the "news you're not supposed to know" notes that radioactive cesium in fish 35 km from Fukushima reactors is 25x legal limit.  Possibility of radiation disheartening to those who live on coast here in Oregon. How is our food being tested for radiation here in US? "Far below levels that pose risk to humans" -- really? Radioactive plumes from Fukushima--Northern Oregon right in the path. Also instability in economy -- even Ben Stein proclaiming that economic collapse is coming.  Inflation -- a hidden tax.  Gold and silver gaining in value.  Workers wages become worth less.

Simon Johnson on Megabanks: Too Big to Save (lecture)

It was an unusual moment at the 2011 Oscars. Charles Ferguson, director of the award-winning documentary "Inside Job," told the audience, "Forgive me, I must start by pointing out that three years after our horrific financial crisis caused by financial fraud, not a single financial executive has gone to jail, and that's wrong." There was some applause. Imagine if you or I drove away without paying for gas or stole a pizza. We’d be arrested. But if you commit a huge financial fraud you walk away with tons of money. The robber barons of the age are laughing as hapless citizens watch in dismay as they are taken to the cleaners. Are these the values U.S. politicians keep extolling and insist the world emulate?

Robert Fisk/Araxie Barsamian - The Armenian Holocaust (lecture)

Robert Fisk/Araxie Barsamian - The Armenian Holocaust (lecture)

In 1915, the Turkish government launched a premeditated organized campaign to eliminate the millennia-old Armenian people from their traditional homeland in what is now southeastern Turkey. The Turkish officials responsible for the genocide were never brought to account. This was not lost on Adolf Hitler. Just days before launching World War Two he told his generals, "Who today, after all, speaks of the annihilation of the Armenians?" What makes the 20th century's first holocaust unique is that Turkey refuses to acknowledge it ever happen. And that denial is the final stage of genocide: closure and justice is denied to the victims and their descendents.

When it comes to taxes, not all income is created—or taxed—equal

Despite the time-honored value of rewarding hard work, our tax code gives preferential treatment to income derived from pre-existing wealth instead of income earned from work.
