ALL LINKS OPEN A NEW WINDOW!!!

Unless you've been living under a rock this week, you may have heard about Matt Taibbi's item in Rolling Stone aptly titled "The Big Takeover". Take it away, Matt! "It's over — we're officially, royally fucked. No empire can survive being rendered a permanent laughingstock, which is what happened as of a few weeks ago, when the buffoons who have been running things in this country finally went one step too far. It happened when Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner was forced to admit that he was once again going to have to stuff billions of taxpayer dollars into a dying insurance giant called AIG, itself a profound symbol of our national decline — a corporation that got rich insuring the concrete and steel of American industry in the country's heyday, only to destroy itself chasing phantom fortunes at the Wall Street card tables, like a dissolute nobleman gambling away the family estate in the waning days of the British Empire." Well, guess who will be featured on Sunday Morning? No, not Taibbi! HA! The WH Limo will take TIM GEITHNER to Meet the David and This Snufagupolos to explain NONE of what Taibbi has in RS and instead tell us how AIG is "too big to fail" and all his buds on Wall Street really need MORE TAX PAYER MONEY! Then the WH HIMSELF will be on with Face the Bob to explain exactly why Geithner is doing a "heck of a job" bankrupting the country. Of course don't miss throwing bricks at JOHN "Crazytrain" MCCAIN on MTP right after Geithner. And cheer on PAUL KRUGMAN during the This Week Roundtable where he tells GEORGE WILL to stuff it! State of the King will have on RICHARD HOLBROOKE and DAVID PATRAEUS discussing the Greater Middle East and the Afghanistan "surge". FAKE NEWS SUNDAY trolls for Canadian PM right-winger STEPHEN HARPER and SoD ROBERT GATES. Catch the Sunday broadcast of Ring Of Fire Radio with BBC Investigative reporter GREG PALAST about the 20th anniversary of the Exxon Valdez oil spill and Congressman RUSH HOLT about Voting Machine manufacturer Diebold's "Hidden" DELETE button. Don't forget to run ANTIWAR RADIO's interview with Larry Wilkerson. Looks like Cindy Sheehan is no longer on Green 960's Sunday lineup, so drop us a line if you know what's up with that! The stimulus bill is allegedly looking for "shovel ready" projects and the Brick TeeVee crew has one ready for a government bailout. Do you know how many shovelfuls it takes to move FIVE YARDS of TOPSOIL? The Brick TeeVee crew found out this weekend, as they are expanding the garden to make this year's the bestest ever! Now all they want are long hot baths, back rubs and hot stone massages, and...HEY! Wait a minute! Isn't that what all the AIG Execs got at the luxury spa?

    As reported by ghettodefender Sun, 02/08/2009 - 5:28pm.
      wiki: Dave Marsh (born March 1, 1950, Detroit, Michigan) is an American music critic who briefly attended Wayne State University, became a co-founder of Creem magazine, wrote for various publications such as Newsday, The Village Voice, and Rolling Stone, and also edited Rock and Roll Confidential, a newsletter about rock music and social issues. Marsh is also a member of the National Advisory Board of PROTECT: The National Association to Protect Children. XM put this guy on this afternoon, and I though he was great. Not as good as Sam, but a hella of lot better than a rerun of Rachael. Mostly, he talking about Phelps and our stupid drug laws. He really wanted callers. Was easy to talk to. And never pulled a Randi. Anyway, I don't know anything about him, but so far I'm glad I'm hearing him.
    We'll take that as a ringing endorsement! Check it out!

Apart from the basal functions of advertence the hours and minutes, the watches message aswell displays the abnormal and alarm functions. The all-embracing weight of the admirable precious stones constitutes 2.45 carats. The case embraces a skeletonized, hand-engraved dial, rendered in blush gold.
