Kim Loves Pizza

by bicyclemark 0 Comments

MY thoughts on North Korea can be summed up by the final paragraph of an article By Francesco Sisci of the Asia Times. It reads:

A couple of years ago Western intelligence discovered in Rome that North Korean intelligence agents were busily buying kitchen utensils and microwave ovens. The Western agents became suspicious and investigated the matter. They found out that some parts of microwaves oven could be used to build triggers for atomic bombs. They thus thought that the North Koreans were about to build an atomic bomb and were purchasing the components of its trigger in the form of innocuous kitchenware. They were about to act and stop the traffic, when they came across another piece of information: The utensils were connected with some Italian chefs hired to go and cook for a period of time in Pyongyang at Kim Jong-il’s court. So the Western agents dropped the matter – apparently Kim was simply fond of Italian food. Perhaps he is fonder of pizza than of atomic bombs.

Doctor in the House and Senate

Senator Bill Frist, MD. That’s the new majority leader of the US senate. NYTimes and Washington Post are on all fours, singing his praises with articles entitled: “The Good Doctor” and “Is there a doctor in the house”… obviously these journalists have fallen asleep at the wheel as the drivers of free and independent press that criticizes in the public interest. Instead of referring to the major media’s articles, let us all refer to proper investigative journalism, which can be found at such media as: www.laweekly.com, www.salon.com, www.villagevoice.com . These investigations aren’t so warm and fuzzy with their coverage of the new leader. They are not busy shining his boots with their words of praise for the MD. Instead they refer to facts… facts that endanger the American public. These facts include:

Frist has voted against sex education, international family planning, emergency contraception [the morning-after pill], affirmative action, hate crimes legislation, and the Employment Non-Discrimination Act.

The basis of the Frist family fortune is HCA Inc. (Hospital Corporation of America), the largest for-profit hospital chain in the country, which was founded by Frist?s father and brother.

In 1994, Frist ? who?d never bothered to vote before first running for the Senate that year ? spent some $3.4 million of his personal fortune to buy the seat from Tennessee (HCA?s headquarters) that he now occupies

Frist has used his influence to further HCA?s cause by stopping a strong patients? bill of rights, gridlocking a mandatory Medicare prescription-drug benefit, and promoting caps on damages for victims who sue negligent hospitals like HCA?s

The good Dr. Frist voted against patients? rights to sue their HMOs for failure to provide adequate treatment, and voted to give tax subsidies to HMOs and insurance companies to offer prescription drugs to seniors, rather than providing them through Medicare.

What does this mean? Obviously this is not just another dumb politician. This is a crook who represents a danger to the health and finances of every citizen. What should be done? Let him go the way of Mr. Segregation LOTT, mass protests demanding his resignation… he’d crumble instantly and resign to his millions. It worked only a few months ago, it would work again.

If the criminal American government with its international law violating ally (UK) attack Iraq, the UN reports that 500,000 Iraq people will require humanitarian assistance. 500,000 people… just because George Bush wants to use his weapons of mass destruction which make alot of money for big military contractors. Which brings to mind Missle Defense… which is a stupid title for an impossible objective. The latest numbers were in the hundreds of millions, spent on a system that is supposed to destroy missles launched at the US from anywhere. ANYWHERE!? This writer has never studied rocket science, but in this case – it isnt necessary, common sense tells us that they could never predict where the missle would be coming from, if there would be multiple, what type of missle, etc etc. Yet hundreds of millions are being spent, taxpayer money, which would be better spent ANYWHERE!
