The RED MEAT MYTH! Oprah Helped Spread The Myth, But It Is Still A Myth. Tabacco Is Not Saying Red Meat Is An Unqualified Plus, But What About Chicken & What About Force-Fed Ducks & Geese To Bloat Their Livers To Produce More “Pâté de Fois Gras” – Even Seafood Is Basically PROTEIN. If We Eat Only That, Which Is Unadulterated, WE STARVE!

I don’t watch ‘Oprah’ as a rule because she mainly targets females, but I know you remember that brouhaha about the RED MEAT that had the BEEF INDUSTRY up in arms! Well, folks, Oprah was only HALF-RIGHT! She targeted BEEF, but what about CHICKENS and GEESE, to name two! Chickens are raised in such cramped quarters (except for the Free Range variety) that chickens can barely move. And geese (or is it ducks?) are force-fed to make them fatter and produce more liver for that specialty that gourmets love: PÂTÉ de FOIS GRAS! Continue reading

GPI: GENUINE PROGRESS INDICATOR Is What We Should Use To Measure Quality of Life, Not GNP Or GDP, Which Measure ONLY CONSUMPTION & Increase Positively Because We Spend $ To Repair, Renovate & Reverse Calamities Such As Fire, Sabotage, Flood, Hurricane, Tornado, Tsunami, Medical Disorder & Infirmity, Contagion, Foreign Aid, Loans & Interest, Death, Disease, Military Industrial Complex Expenditures, And Recovery Dollars From Our Own War Destruction Abroad. In Short, GNP & GDP Include NEGATIVE EXPENDITURES, Whereas GPI (GENUINE PROGRESS INDICATOR) DOES NOT – GPI 2

Mark Anielski, Author of ‘The Economics of Happiness’, “Could we develop new ways of accounting for well-being that measures the things that contribute to quality of life in addition to measuring consumption?”

Kim Spencer, Co-Founder of LinkTV and Narrator of Documentary: GLOBALIZATION is often seen as the Solution to many of humanity’s problems. But does Globalization help spread the wealth, or is it just another way to Colonize the Poor?

TABACCO: If your house burns down 3 times in one year, the expenditures to rebuild your house are included in both GNP and GDP all 3 times. That’s known as “Inflating the Figures”! Politicians and Capitalists love it because it makes the “System” we have look good, but is it a “True Indicator”? NOT! GNP and GDP are at best POLITICAL PROPAGANDA TOOLS for the ESTABLISHMENT! And “WE THE PEOPLE” are the SAPS, who buy into those FRAUDULENT FIGURES! + Ladakh, modern day Shangri-La corrupted to our standards by Globalization Continue reading

ASKING THE WRONG QUESTION (An Old Politician’s Trick): “Is It That Governor Romney’s 15% Effective Personal Tax Rate Means He Doesn’t Play By The Rules?” – Question Should Be: “Are Rules That Allow Gov. Romney To Pay 15% Tax Rate Fair?” How Sophists Trick You Into Irrelevant Thought Processes! The TRUTH Is The RULES ARE UNFAIR! Following Unfair Rules Romney Helped Create & We Did NOT Setup Is INHERENTLY UNFAIR To Middle Class! Example Of Political “Hocus Pocus”! If Republicans Misdirect You To Answer An Irrelevant Question, You Miss The Essentials!

“Why does President Obama deserve a 2nd term in view of the minimal increase in Jobs and GDP?” What is the ALTERNATIVE to a 2nd Obama term? Note all Republicans want to defeat Obama! But that means electing another Republican! Which is better? A) Minimal Economic Growth under a Democrat or B) Maximal Economic Decline under a different Republican? You tell me! Continue reading

Why I Stopped Watching CNN: HORSERACE POLITICS! Obama Is Down In The Polls, Gov. Romney Is Leading In Minnesota, The Race Is Very Close In Ohio – That’s Not Politics; It’s Politics As SPORTS! Where Are The Issues On CNN???? What Does Lobbying, Outsourcing, Right-To-Work Laws, DOMA, TARP, ObamaCare & Stimulus Law Mean To America And To You Personally? That May Not Be Sexy, But That Is Real News! Jonbenet, OJ & Political Sex Scandals Are Gossip, Not News! CNN Is Now TV’s Version Of The National Enquirer! – OpEd

When Tabacco Googled “CNN Political Issues”, guess what I got – more Horserace Info! But if you watch CNN, you already knew that! Continue reading

America Today Is A WINNER-TAKE-ALL Society! Once Again The Spin Doctors Caused Congress To Dump Glass-Steagall So Wall Street Could Gamble & Fail. When TOO-BIG-TO FAILS Do Fail, Our Government Has No Choice But To Bail Them Out. SOLUTION: 1-End Lobbying, 2-Break Up Too-Big-To-Fails (Trust Busting), 3-Defeat All Deregulation Politicians AKA Republicans: Do You Understand That’s Why We Got This Economic Crisis – We Allowed Capitalists Free Reign! Is Anybody Awake!

CALLER: I do not understand why you did not include the fact that UBS was fined $780 million by this administration. Surely, you do not want to have people vote Republican or for a third party, which will only enable the Republicans to get elected. I am appalled, frankly, at your last segment, which did nothing, I don’t think, in fairness to this administration…

BILL MOYERS: We like to hear from all of our viewers. But I’m afraid she misses the point. It’s not our role as journalists to help elect the candidate you like, or defeat the one you don’t like. Our job is to help you see what you may have missed. There’s always more than meets the eye. So keep that in mind throughout this election year. We’ll leave the horserace mostly to others – while we do our best to throw some light on what’s really at stake. Continue reading

NUCLEAR DETERRENCE WORKS; PROPHYLACTIC WAR DOES NOT! USA & Soviets Had “Cold War” But No War! India & Pakistan No Longer Warring! No Country Would Dare Declare War On USA, Russia, China, India, Pakistan, North Korea, Or ISRAEL – That’s Right: ISRAEL! Why Not? Because They All Have NUCLEAR WEAPONS (WMDs)! So Why Are Israel & USA So Determined To Prevent Iraq, Iran From Getting WMDs With Military Attacks? Why Not Let Them Just Have Nukes!

“Deterrence is a difficult concept to accept because it is counterintuitive: The prospect of destruction produces peace. And yet its record is remarkable. Great powers went to war with brutal regularity for hundreds of years. Then came nuclear weapons, and there has not been a war between great powers since 1945 – the longest period of peace between great powers in history. The United States and the Soviet Union had a more intense and far-reaching rivalry than almost any two great powers ever. Each thought the other wanted to destroy its way of life. And yet, this rivalry did not result in war. Both sides were deterred.” Continue reading

UTILITARIANISM: “The Greatest Good For The Greatest Number”. All Politicians Claim It, But Most Are “Lip Service” Liars! Capitalism Engenders The Greatest Good For The Least Number. Likewise Democracy, Religion, Privatized Healthcare/Higher Education, Outsourcing, Eminent Domain, War, Think Tanks, Etc. Etc! Utilitarianism Has Been Replaced With Sophistry, Hoax & Deception.

“It is the belief that the sole standard of morality is determined by its usefulness. Philosophers refer to it as a “teleological” system. The Greek word “telos” means end or goal. This means that this ethical system determines morality by the end result. Whereas Christian ethics are based on rules, utilitarianism is based on results.” –There is NO RULE, which we obey absolutely! There is NO END, which is universally predictable! What if BOTH are inherently WRONG? Continue reading

X: The GASOLINE ENIGMA! How Barrel Price Is Substituted For The Gallon Conversion To Keep Public In The Dark! Q. How Many Gallons In A Barrel? If You Don’t Know That, How Do You Convert Barrel Price To Gallon Profit, Price Or Cost? Mass Media In Collusion With BIG OIL!

X = Energy Industry’s Mark-Up%! When Gas at Pump was $.69/gallon, it was X. Now at $4.00/gallon, it is still X. When Pump Gas reaches $5.00/gallon, it will still be X. X includes Profit, not Expenses, which do increase. But PROFIT need not! Big Oil is not working any harder at $5/gallon than it did at $.69/gallon. But shhhhhhh; nobody talks about this! TABACCO HAS A SOLUTION! Continue reading

U.S. Supreme Court Ruled “Corporations Are People With All Their Benefits”. Now Will Court Rule “Corporations Have None Of Responsibilities Of Individuals”? The Ultimate Double Standard! Justices Are Capitalists First, Not Jurists! Don’t Forget Bush-Gore Decision 2000: Another Example Of Right-Wing TEFLON ACTIVIST JUDGES!

McCain-Feingold, Citizens United, MOSOP, Shell Oil, Ken Saro-Wiwa, EarthRights International: just a few groups, individuals and laws for you to identify; yes, they are described in this post! Continue reading

Why Republicans Love The Stupid, The Ignorant, The Under-Educated, The Easily-Influenced, The Gullible, The Religious Zealot, The Sponge, The Parrot, And The Follower!

You’ve lost your home to foreclosure, but more important is Elizabeth Warren. Gasoline is $4.00 heading to $5.00, but more important is Exxon getting its Subsidies. Bill Clinton’s presidency reduced National Debt for 1st time, but focus on Bill’s personal ethics and Monica Lewinsky, not his accomplishments. Obama has only reduced Unemployment from 9% to 8%, so let’s put the GOP, who created Economic Crisis in first place, back in White House. – See how GOP LOGIC works! Continue reading
