And some really important news of the day (although one fervently wished Mr. Kim had actually bombed Harvard, which would have been a good start --- along with bombing Yale and Princeton (and perhaps MIT and Stanford)):
Hidden in the report which the White House panel on NSA released today is a stunning implication: that the U.S. government has been using its massive offensive cyber capabilities to change the amounts held in financial accounts and otherwise manipulating financial systems.
These banks that sit atop the U.S. financial hierarchy by virtue of their legacy leaders having attacked 1933 Glass-Steagall regulations since the 1950s—piece by piece—own insurance companies, asset management companies, and brokerage or trading houses.
A warning on the Affordable Care Act or "Obamacare" (and why we should have ONLY national healthcare for everyone:
commented on Hang Snowden!
Let us examine R. James Woolsey's background:
"Within hours of the September 11 attacks, Woolsey appeared on television suggesting Iraqi complicity." (wikipedia)
Woolsey is the chairman of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, the ultra-neocon outfit which replaced PNAC, or the Project for a New American Century.
And, Woolsey is also a Senior Vice President at Booz Allen Hamilton, which was the joint which employed Mr. Snowden when his deep penetration of NSA programs occurred!
Seems like many, many conflicts of interest, or motivations for such heinous drivel trash talk by Woolsey, the neocon clown of clowns!

I understand the thinking among Republicans is that if we let these people get to work on their own, with no assistance, they won't need government benefits.
Negative, the thinking is that they will gobble up all the public income, destroy the tax base and continue to destroy the jobs base, by offshoring as many jobs as possible, doing the majority of new job creation overseas, and hamstringing the rest of us with their dismantling of the US economy.
To suggest otherwise is to attribute some sort of chronic stoner state to a bunch of sociopathic greedheads.
commented on Against Multivitamins
Once in a very long while, some docs occasionally get it right.
Most of those vitamins simply are expelled when you pee or dump, little of them are actaully absorbed in your system.
Recommended: a teaspoon of cod liver oil on a daily, or every other day basis. Ginseng products are usually pretty good, and fruit juices, especially blueberry, hawthorne berry, marionberry, black currant, etc., are most important, along with the usual vegetables and remaining fruits.
Also, when drinking water, add lemon juice (from squeezed lemons) as it is recommended for healthy lungs, plus added Vitamin C.

That's an incredible video on the fox, thanx!
I've only witnessed a fox in real life once, and that was probably because it was a mommy fox accompanied by three baby foxes, or vixen or kits or whatever the eff the young ones are called. One glance away then back, and they had completely disappeared from view.
The fox, especially the rare red fox, is supposed to be the smartest animal in North America, and given the rarity of viewing them it is easy enough to believe.

You are incorrect until you get to the very end, the Federal Reserve is the major number holder of the US debt (the Fed is still a private bankster, or the front office for the bankster cartel), the number two is the European Union, with China coming in at three --- that's what the numbers say, regardless of what any other efftards are prattling on about!
The big story, and happened just recently, is that the Singapore Exchange reached an agreement with the Hong Kong Exchange to stop using the US dollar as their currency for ttransactions, but instead have now adopted the Chinese currency, the renimbi (or whatever the eff it's called?).
