In The News: The US may be ready to abandon the Karzai regime in Afghanistan for the Northern Alliance related Abdullah Abdullah and is now acknowledging the necessity of a run-off election. Perhaps Abdullah could whip our Opium growing allies, the Northern Alliance, into line and onto the 'front lines'. But it may be difficult to arrange a run-off election in Afghanistan right now as the sentiment among the citizens seems to be: "We will not risk our lives to vote again". Meanwhile, Ex-UnoCal consultant Karzai says he "...would welcome more American troops". Indeed he would... He could not survive politically, and perhaps physically as well, without them.

On the other front in our AfPakistan war, the mountain tribes of Waziristan and the valley tribes of Swat have been regularly attacking Pakistani 'Frontier Police' outposts due to the Pakistani Air Force bombing of their region.

The US has decided to pass the $7.5 billion dollar Kerry-Lugar 'aid bill' for Pakistan with all sorts of US oriented foreign policy strings attached. The Pakistanis are, for the most part, considering it an insult with words such as "Pakistan must "cease all support for extremist and terrorist groups," and have written a 'bill' of their own.
The Jinnah-Iqbal Bill: A Response to the Kerry-Lugar Bill
2009 October 8

To implement the ideology of Pakistan purported by Qaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah and Allama Iqbal, to promote an enhanced relationship of this nation with its ideology and for no ‘other’ purposes.

Be it enacted by General Ashfaq Pervaiz Kayani and the Armed Forces of Pakistan as a Representation of the Will of the People of Pakistan.

This Act may be cited as the ‘The Sovereignty and Dignity of the People of Pakistan Act of 2009’.

We, the people of Pakistan, make the following findings:


(1) The people of Pakistan have a long history of being used by the Unites States as a pawn in its plans for world domination. It is clear to us now that the Pakistani interest is not well –served by the meddling of the United States in the affairs of our state.

(2) The people of Pakistan will never give up their sovereignty, their dignity and will not let their government sell the country for so called financial ‘aid’.

(3) Despite the fact that Pakistan has been a major ally of the U.S in the so called ‘war on terror’ , the U.S continues to kill hundreds of Pakistani citizens in drone attacks which are seen as a major onslaught on the sovereignty of the Pakistani nation and a violation of our international borders.

(4) The U.S support for terrorist activities inside Pakistan, compounded by the hostile Indian presence on the Pakistan-Afghanistan border has led to the deaths of several thousand Pakistani civilians and members of the security forces of Pakistan over the past 8 years and any more of this outrage is unacceptable to the people of Pakistan.

(5) Despite the sacrifices and cooperation of the security forces of Pakistan, the United States continues to support and fund separatist movements in Pakistan’s Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA), parts of the North West Frontier Province (NWFP) and Balochistan.

(6) The continued hostility of the United States towards the Armed Forces and Intelligence Agencies of Pakistan, as well as the spread of disinformation regarding the Nuclear Assets of Pakistan.

(9) The ultimate U.S goals of destroying Pakistan’s Nuclear Weapons and to exert complete control over the military institutions of Pakistan have now become very clear from the Kerry-Lugar Bill.

In Honduras, a deadline passes and the Brazilian embassy is still under siege with the legitimate president of Honduras Manuel Zelaya holed up inside. Ongoing negotiations are hung up over whether the rightful president will stay in his post until the upcoming elections. Victor Meza, president Zelaya's interior minister and head of his negotiating team said: "Errors in democracy should be corrected by more democracy, not by coups d'etat,"

You didn't think he was going to end up sleeping in a doorway like some of the folks his company wrote below-sub-subprime mortgage to, did you? The Bailout 'Pay Czar' wins one on Capitol Hill and the CEO of AIG will step down after returning bonuses received (but "Bailed-out AIG workers get to hold on to bonuses". He get's to take the big jump to RetirementLand with a 'Golden Parachute' though.

President Obama was in San Francisco yesterday speaking at a fund raiser for the Democrats in the upcoming local elections. Not just ANY Democratic supporter could attend though... It was a $34,000 a plate meal. Don't have those kind of bucks? You could have gotten a glimpse for JUST $500-$1,000 dollars

Meanwhile, due to lack of county/city facilities and massive funding cuts for the homeless just as more Californians find themselves 'out' than any time in history, the homeless shelter near Da' Buffalo's range has to charge indigents for meals

No Free Lunch In America

Breezeway Sleepers CRCHand the shelter, which is more correctly a 'service center' for most of the county's homeless, not a physical 'shelter', had people sleeping in their breezway during the recent Pacific tropical storm because the winter quarters they lease, the local National Guard armory, was not yet available.

I wonder if the homeless tend towards voting Democratic? They are obviously not the constituency that Obama tailored his fundraising address to, but it begs the question... will he address their sometimes life-threatening issues at all?

Stand by... and keep 'hoping', while some, a growing percentage of the American socio-economic landscape, keep hoping for 'spare change'.
