Jobs! Jobs! Jobs! As you may know President Obama was in Da Cleve this past week where he told students and hopium smokers shiny-object chestnuts like "If we are going to give tax breaks to companies, they should go to companies that create jobs here in America, not to create jobs overseas" and "The only reason they are holding this up is politics, pure and simple" (PD) and then went to Milwaukee to tell the peeps "Number one: I am going to keep fighting every single day, every single hour, every single minute, to turn this economy around and put people back to work and renew the American Dream, not just for your family, not just for all our families, but for future generations. That I can guarantee you." And this crowd-pleaser "I don’t want to buy stuff from someplace else. I want to grow our exports so that we’re selling to someplace else — products that say “Made in the U.S.A.” " AUDIENCE: U.S.A.! U.S.A.! U.S.A.! (Milwaukee Courier) Wadda bunch of maroons! Dig under the boilerplate and Robert Reich tells us Obama’s whopping proposed corporate tax cuts help legitimize the supply-side dogma that the economy’s biggest obstacle to growth is the cost of capital, rather than the plight of ordinary working people. Robert Sheer @ TruthDig enjoins, The commitment of $50 billion to a national infrastructure program to be phased in over the next decade would prove to be too little too late. It is chump change compared with the $350 billion in loans and guarantees to one bank alone, Citigroup, which still cannot stand steadily on its own feet." DIGBY in Tough Love For Parasites snags one from Big Orange's MeteorBlades who found an AEI item from Kevin Hasset, AEI's director of economic-policy studies that proclaims, "the natural reluctance of workers to accept lower pay is amplified by how their wage helps define their identity. A $60,000-a-year office worker might have an extra-hard time coming to terms with becoming a $40,000-a-year worker also pointing out from CEO compensation totaled $598 million at the 50 companies that laid off the most workers The 50 U.S. chief executives who laid off the most employees between November 2008 and April 2010 eliminated a total of 531,363 jobs, according to the Institute for Policy Studies, a research group that works for social justice and against wealth concentration...In “CEO Pay and the Great Recession,” the institute said the $598 million in combined pay for the 50 executives would have paid one month’s worth of average-sized unemployment benefits for each of the laid-off workers. The top 50 layoff firms reported a 44 percent average profit increase for 2009, the report said. USA! USA! Oh but there's more in The United States of Inequality at Slate! On top of that the Obama "justice" department followed orders and won one for The Gipper II when Obama wins the right to invoke "State Secrets" to protect Bush crimes GLENN GREENWALD @ Salon: The distorted, radical use of the state secret privilege -- as a broad-based immunity weapon for compelling the dismissal of entire cases alleging Executive lawbreaking, rather than a narrow discovery tool for suppressing the use of specific classified documents -- is exactly what the Bush administration did to such extreme controversy...The ACLU's Ben Wizner, who argued the case on behalf of the plaintiffs, said "the United States will have closed its courtroom doors to torture victims while providing complete immunity to their torturers. The torture architects and their enablers may have escaped the judgment of this court, but they will not escape the judgment of history.. Even Andrew Sullivan laments in The Untamed Prince writing, "But Obama's insistence on protecting every Bush era war criminal and every Bush era war crime from any redress or even scrutiny is a sign both of how cold-blooded he can be, but more, I think, of how powerful the security state now is, how it can protect itself, how it exists independently of any real accountability to anyone, how even the metrics of judging it are beyond the citizen's reach or understanding. Huh. Does anybody remember Dennis Kucinich reading the 35 Articles of Impeachment on the SPAN? No? Don't feel too bad: neither do the Beltway Bobbleheads! And they will mightily defend their positions starting with washed-up NEWT "Contract ON America" GINGRICH on Fake Snooze Sunday. Save yer bricks for JOHN "Crybaby" BOEHNER on Face the Bob while Candy's Nation gets washed-up FORMER House Majority Leader & Tea-Bagger Extraordinaire DICK ARMEY, washed-up FORMER Senate Majority Leader TRENT LOTT plus washed-up FORMER Homeland Security honcho MICHAEL CHERTOFF and his equally washed-up henchwoman FRAN TOWNSEND, all good brick targets. (Why are these failed people offering their failed viewpoints on National TeeVee? Like they matter? Hmmmm.) Christiane Anampour tries to get at "why do they hate us STILL after nine long years" rationale with a roundtable including "Ground Zero Mosque" driver IMAM FEISAL ABDUL RAUF. Last brick target is FORMER NYC MAYER Rudy "Verb, Noun, 9-11" Ghouliani on Meet the David (who incidentally made $millions selling "security products" to dupes as Giuliani Partners LLC haha. Say Rudy! What ever happened to all that GOLD under the Twin Towers? Eh?) We strongly recommend Loose Change The Final Cut and to make sense of what really happened nine years ago. Best bet is to skip right to the Brick TeeVee Alerts and our regular features to get a grip of what's really going on. The Brick TeeVee Crew is in FULL-SCARE MODE now that the corporopress has already predicted a tea-bagger mid-term victory and all the "Good Cop" Dems are reminding us how bad another Regressive victory would be, even though those same "Good Cop" Dems are following the very same neo-liberal policies that got us into this mess in the first place! No doubt it seems the American Taliban have the upper hand convincing the sheeple, aided and abetted by the Koch Bros et. al. Welcome to Serfdom 21st Century style!

Offshore Drilling is Not The Answer: Restore the Moratorium
from Surfrider Foundation (h/t jen)
The tragic and devastating oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico is a stark reminder that offshore oil drilling is not the answer.
The Deepwater Horizon rig that exploded and sank has spilled millions of gallons of oil into the ecologically rich waters in the Gulf of Mexico and continues to gush 210,000 gallons of oil into the sea every day. The spill remains unabated and now has the potential to become one of the worst environmental disasters in U.S. history. The unfolding catastrophe clearly illustrates that offshore drilling is not safe and new technology is not fool proof.
Tell the Obama Administration new drilling is NOT THE ANSWER. Our coasts and the economy they support cannot withstand anymore!
We are reminded why the 1969 oil spill in Santa Barbara and the 1989 Exxon Valdez oil spill led to state and federal moratoriums on offshore oil drilling. The tragedy in the Gulf of Mexico makes it clear that it is time once again time to restore those moratoriums.

    This Week on Ring of Fire! September 10, 2010
    • This week on Ring of Fire Radio, author Andrew Bacevich will be here to tell us why the US must shift resources away from the military and stop acting like the world’s police officer, in order to help solve the major problems facing us in our own country.
    • On the ninth anniversary of the September 11th attacks, Dr. C. Welton Gaddy, president of the Interfaith Alliance, will enter the Ring to discuss the dangerous rise of religious intolerance in America.
    • Blogger Chauncey DeVega will be here to talk about some of the biggest threats posed by Glenn Beck, including the fact that he’s convinced his less than intelligent followers that they are, in fact, some of the brightest people on the planet.
    • And political satirist Matt Filipowicz will be here to run through some of the most ridiculous news stories from the last week, including the ongoing gibberish from the Right about the need for “trickle down economics.”

    • VIDEO! Papantonio: Let’s Beat Glenn Beck’s Butt With One Nation Rally Oct. 2 The American middle class is under assault from both the GOP and corporate America. To make matters worse, polls show that Republicans have a slight edge over Democrats in the midterm elections. If this trend continues, we will be looking at the death of the American middle class, as Mike Papantonio points out on The Ed Schultz Show.
    • VIDEO! Papantonio: BP Trying to Spread Cost Burden BP released their assessment of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig explosion, and in their report, they stated that no single failure could be blamed, but rather the explosion was the result of numerous failures from numerous companies. As Mike Papantonio points out to Laura Flanders on GRITtv, this is just their way of spreading blame and cleanup costs.
