Ha, I just love Michael Moore saying it as it is. Guardian UK via zendancer. Read the whole thing. Some good questions to George W. Bush, which he ought to answer. Excerpts from Moore's new book, "Dude, where's my country". Good stuff like:
4. Why did you allow a private Saudi jet to fly around the US in the days after September 11 and pick up members of the Bin Laden family and fly them out of the country without a proper investigation by the FBI?

Private jets, under the supervision of the Saudi government - and with your approval - were allowed to fly around the skies of America, when travelling by air was forbidden, and pick up 24 members of the Bin Laden family and take them first to a "secret assembly point in Texas". They then flew to Washington DC, and then on to Boston. Finally, on September 18, they were all flown to Paris, out of the reach of any US officials. They never went through any serious interrogation. This is mind-boggling. Might it have been possible that at least one of the 24 Bin Ladens would have possibly known something?

While thousands were stranded and could not fly, if you could prove you were a close relative of the biggest mass murderer in US history, you got a free trip to gay Paree!

Why, Mr Bush, was this allowed to happen?
Yes, why indeed?

...on verge of civil war, you think ?  


7 Oct 2003 @ 06:21 by ming : Civil War
Oh, no, I think people are much too comfortable with the american life style for that to happen. Well, at least not a violent kind of civil war. Maybe an information civil war, or a political civil war, or economical. Certainly the country seems getting divided in two. Those who say things like the above, and have collected lots of items like that, versus those who think that "we must support our president, and he wouldn't do anything like that, because he's a nice man". Notice that Moore's book comes out in a million copies in the first printing. Lots of things that are well known to conspiracy freaks on the Internet is suddenly very visible in the papers and all the bookstores. That might very well be a key catalyst to changing things. But civil war, no.

Well, I´m glad about that; I have very good friends in America now! :-)

it didn't happen.

Here are some sources: http://www.publicedcenter.org/stories/saudi-evacuation/. Like, Colin Powell confirms it here.

http://www.globalrichlist.com/ is useful for putting things into perspective, particularly for those in the industrial north who think that they are "middle class" and that they are "just getting by." Some get by, and some get by more equally than others. How much income does it take to be in the top 1%, globally? About US$47,500. To be at the global median? US$850.00. The US median income? US$50,046.00. I'm presuming that all of these figures are median faminly income; i.e., for a family of four. I haven't had a chance to examine thoroughly theglobalrichlist.com's numbers yet. Nevertheless, the income gap appears impressive.
