Twitter This Commentary
Thanks this morning to ChrisM, my MP3Angel, for supplying the news and commentary audio files.

[Before the commentary a word from this morning's sponsor JobQuest International. After the commentary, a rallying cry heard round the world from the 1960s by some people Travus knows well... Quicksilver Messenger Service. Courtesy of the respective artists and KPIG radio Freedom California, Earth.]

In light of the commentary, and the comparison to the Arab Spring... This from al-Jazeera:
Liverpool Monument To Mohamed BouaziziIn the heart of Toxteth, Liverpool, a mysterious statue appeared in the early hours of July 30 It was a monument to Mohamed Bouazizi, the young Tunisian man who, after being humiliated by police, had set himself alight in an act of protest that was to inflame the simmering rage of hundreds of thousands of people. Last Thursday, in the London borough of Tottenham, the British police shot and killed a 29-year-old black man named Mark Duggan. The following day, the monument in Toxteth - a district that had been the site of racially-fuelled social unrest in the 1980s - disappeared, the monument's artist told Al Jazeera.

The Liverpool city council was unable to comment on whether it was responsible for having the monument removed, as they were swamped trying to deal with the riots, which spread to Liverpool over the weekend.

Mohamed Bouazizi's self-immolation, and the uprising that followed, happened in a very different context to the British riots... [In Full]
From [Pen-L], the Progressive Economists Listserv:
Youth Unemployment In Europe

In June 2011, more than five million young people between 15 and 24 years in the European Union were unemployed. The rate of youth unemployment in the European Union amounts to 20.5%. By far the highest youth unemployment rate is reported from Spain, where in June nearly half (45.7%) of the youth aged 15-24 years were unemployed." More statistics follow....

NOW...In The News:
» Yesterday the US stock market's Dow Jones average dived five hundred and nineteen points. Gold went through the $1,800 mark but settled below it. The Irish and French banks have had bad news for the financial markets even as the Swiss government begins to consider printing more Francs to reduce the value of their currency which some claim is overvalued in relation to the US dollar and the Euro. Other European banks are buying Italian and Spanish bonds to support those countries economies.

» It took sixteen thousand police officers to keep London quiet overnight, but in Manchester and North Nottingham there were attacks on the police. Prime Minister Cameron, upset at being recalled from his vacation, has called for the use of Water Cannons and Plastic Bullets... The first time those crowd control weapons have ever been used on the mainland of Britain, but used quite often in the Northern Ireland wars. The burning question... What is wrong with British youth?

An interview with Darcus Howe might be able to answer much of that... If Britain's parents and gentry are really listening (doubtful). The BBC may never re-run the impassioned news interview he gave the other day, but DemocracyNow! interviewed him yesterday:
"There is a mass insurrection. And I’m not talking about rioting; I’m talking about an insurrection that comes from the depths of society, from the consciousness, collectively, of the young blacks and whites, but overwhelmingly black, as a result of the consistent stopping and searching young blacks without cause," [Interview Here]
There's much much more in the commentary where you'll find out nothing's really wrong with with the youths at all. They're just responding in kind to industrial society's MASSIVE failures..

It seems a shame... They take such good care of their trucks considering the lack of most anything to repair them:

» There has been a double bombing at a truck stop in Peshawar Pakistan, where Pakistani truckers stage for their NATO-paid runs over the Khyber Pass (AKA Sniper Alley). First the attackers bombed the trucks, and when the 'first responders' showed up, a second bomb went off.

If you're religious, pray for these Pakistani truck drivers. They need it.

» AppleCorp is now the most valuable company in the U.S... worth $637 billion dollars. That's about six billion dollars more than EXXON/Mobil. The question that comes to mind is are they polluting the planet as badly as an oil company to develop that worth? Hard to judge... but one thing IS for certain... THEY ARE planet destroyers (equal time for Apple here) as well as sweat shop labor utilizers.

» One other thing... The GOP has announced its picks for the powerful deficit supercommittee:
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) has appointed Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp (R-Mich.), Energy and Commerce Chairman Fred Upton (R-Mich.) and House Republican Conference Chairman Jeb Hensarling (R-Texas) to serve on the deficit supercommittee.

Hensarling will serve as the co-chairman of the supercomittee.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) appointed his deputy Sens. Jon Kyl (R-Ariz.), former Bush budget director Rob Portman (R-Ohio), and Tea Party favorite Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Penn.) [More @ The Hill]

In OTHER News:

The other day, A Washington Post blog, The Daily Beast, published a particularly nasty piece of anti-Islamic, pro-war on Somalia propaganda by an alleged expat Somali doctor titled: "Under Siege In Somalia - A people plagued by catastrophic famine — and the tyranny of Islamist fanatics".

This morning... A picture of US mercenary 'trainers' in Somalia on the FRONT PAGE of the NYTimes:

[Click the picture for the article]

That means we must be 'going' for it'.

Yours truly did a debunking of the WaPo post in the comments of the Daily Beast article (as Auntie Imperial):
This is a load of BS. Here's the REAL deal!

The title... to be quite plain is: Destroying African Agriculture by Walden Bello, Foreign Policy In Focus

It's about how Western institution CAUSE famine in Africa, and further, how these countries make remarkable recoveries when they tell the World Bank, WTO, and the IMF to shove off.

In regard to the Islamic Terrorism trope. Let us not forget that the Somalis TWICE ousted the CIA led thugs (Here's a picture of them at some unidentified airstrip in Africa... Lookit the guy reaching for his piece under his suit jacket) who call themselves the "Transitional Federal Government' of Somalia.

The CIA's Somalia operations even went so far as to remove the thugs via a US Navy submarine to Kenya after the second ouster. But the Kenyans said they could be prosecuted for certain crimes so they were moved to Ethiopia... More than glad to not only host them, but help in the further destabilization and destruction of their longstanding enemy, their neighbor Somalia..

Last but NOT least... Somalis, portrayed as "Pirates" NOT. More like Coast Guard.

Too bad the West is desperate for extractive resources from Africa but it IN NO WAY excuses the displacement of blame and warmongering that this article does.

All and all this is a piece of propagandistic crap, and I will feature it as such prominently in my morning news report. [The article is here]
Consider that done.

This is Razer Raygun saying 'Happy Motoring America...' Enjoy it while you can.


(And PLEASE try to keep your government from killing all the dusky natives...)
