Wake-up Boston: Obama's the stealth corporado!
04 Jan 2008
Modified: 06:53:58 AM
Hey Boston Dems! Going to NH to campaign for Obama? Check this out:
"... Obama's a cold-blooded, Chicago-based and Daley-schooled corporate opportunist who does not believe much of his own campaign drivel and imagery. He is receiving many millions of election dollars from the real “special interests” that most significantly control U.S. society, culture, politics, and policy: leading global investment firms and other powerful corporate interests

Sneak peek at a desert Armageddon
03 Jan 2008
...a veritable industry was built around parsing the literal fallout if deterrence should fail. Indeed, it was Herman Kahn, who founded the Hudson Institute, who in 1965 wrote the book On Escalation, which included an escalation ladder, whose final and 44th step was "spasm or insensate war". In a somewhat similar spirit, a recently released briefing has been making waves. The briefing is turning heads because it was written by Anthony Cordesman, who was a former director of intelligence assessment in the US Secretary of Defense office. He also holds the Arleigh A Burke chair in strategy at CSIS and has done numerous assessments of the Persian Gulf and the Middle East.

California nurses group says insurer CIGNA has 'blood on their hands'

The family of a 17-year-old California girl who died after being initially denied payment for a liver transplant is suing the teen's insurance company, an attorney for the family said Friday.

Nataline Sarkisyan, who died Thursday night after her family removed her from life support, had been in a vegetative state for weeks due to complications following a bone marrow transplant. Insurer CIGNA HealthCare had first denied a doctor-recommended liver transplant for Nataline, who suffered from leukemia, but had reversed course yesterday in the face of mounting public pressure.

"CIGNA Health Corporation literally, maliciously killed her...they conciously disregarded her life," family attorney Mike Geragos said of CIGNA. "And they did that for one specific reason: they did not want to pay for her after-care."
